BY L. Q. D.
Times won t be good, 'tis pliin to see,
'Till Fillmore is upsot
'Till Tierce leads us to victory,
Against old General Scott.
Then spread abroad the glorious news
And make the country ring,
From Maine to Texas we will shout
Huzza for Tierce and King!
The laboring men that work so hard,
To earn their daily bread,
An? very anxious for a change
From times so dull and dread ;
They'll take their spades and grub and dig,
Together one and all,
And work and sweat and toil and shout,
And vote for Tierce this fall.
The Farmers, too, that sterling band,
Know how to till the eoil ;
Their candidates arc Tierce and King,
For them they'll work and toil ;
They'll plow and sow and reap and mow,
And sell their corn and wheat ;
Mo3t largely they'll contribute
To General Scott's defeat.
The Blacksmiths will roll up their sleeves,
Their sledges they will swing;
Ami, next November, they will vote
For Franklin Tierce and King;
They'll blow and strike and forge and weld,
And beat their irons hot.
And like all honest, upright men,
Be death on General Scott.
Shoemakers, too, with right good will,
Around our standard throng ;
Their numbers swell our noble band
And make our army strong;
They'll crimp and cut and last and stitch,
And make and mend and dry,
And peg and hammer and hammer and peg,
For whiggery must die I
The Butchers, they are on the spot,
With knives both great and small,
And tl.ey intend to carve and dress
The federal whigs this fall.
The Coopers, too, are close behind,
With barrels good on hand,
In which to pack down whigcrery, -
With stave and hoop and brand.
The Lawyers plead and pettifog.
And expound the country's laws,
Are all opposed to General Scott,
And will not plead his cause.
The Doctors, too, have given him up,
And say his cause will rot ;
While Masons, Tailors, Merchants, all
Are opposed to General Scott.
Thus, all the professions in the land
Will help to roll the ball
Will shout and sing for Tierce and King,
And vote for them this fall !
Then in one general concert join,
And make the welkin ring;
Ten thousand cheers for Franklin Pierce,
Ten thousand more for King !
Interest ic Relics.
Some ancient relics have been recently discov
ered in the old fort at Christianaon the Delaware,
at the mouth of the Christian Creek. They
aro the cannon balls left by Gov. Risingh, near
ly two hundred years ago. There are four
teen of them, nine and six pounders, all bearing
ample evidence cf their antiquity, by the depth
of oxydations which cover them. Besides these
canuon balls, there were several other articles
dug near them, one of which was an old fas
hioned pewter dish deeper than our common
doner plates, and narrower in the brim, which
it is supposed was Governor Risingh's soup
plate. It, however, bears more certain marks
cf its age than of its family, it being in many
piaces so thoroughly oxidated as to retain none
of its original lustre or tenacity. They were all
found buried from eighteen to thirty inches be
low the surface, and were probably secreted by
liisingh during the seige, when the hope of re
covering the colony from the Dutch had not been
handoned bv the Swedes.
The following verse contains every let

Judge Woodward and Foreigners.
The whig papers have already opened their
batteries upon this pure man, and able Jurist,
with a view to prevent his election. This does
not surprise us. Those who lie, knowingly, to
prejudice voters against Tierce, may be expec
ted to the same thing against Woodward, or any
other democratic candidate.
Among the charges or rather only charge
brought against Judge Woodward, is the old ex
ploded one of Nativeism, based on a misrepre
sentation of his course as a member of the Con
vention to revise the Constitution of the State.
The Wa3rne county Herald, in an article on
this subject, says : Less than one year ago, the
Judge before the citizens of this place, fully
explained the course he pursued in the Conven
tion on this question, and his explanation was
published in full in our paper, giving reasons
and facts sufficient to satisfy any but knaves and
fools, thathis proposition in the Convention was
only intended to defeat a worse proposition made
by a whig, and when it effected the object, it
was promptly withdrawn ; and that the speech
as reported by a whig stenographer, done him
great injustice. The off-hand remarks made at
the time, were not then supposed worthy of pub
lication, and they were never seen by Mr. Wood
ward, until they appeared in the published vol
umes of the debates, and then he scarcely , re
cognized in the alleged speech, enough to know
that he ever participated in its origin.
The following proceedings show that the Na
tive, charge was promptly met and denied by
Mr. Wroodward himself, in the face of the Con-
I vention that heard and knew the whole case. In
volume 10, page 33, while discussing an aboli
tionist quesMon, one Mr. Earle, of anti-slavery
tendencies thus alludes to the subject :
"Would it be right in me, who listened with
pleasure on many occasions, to the most eloquent
enforcement of sound principles by the gentle
man from Luzerne, to condemn all those princi
ple?, because he might err on one point. Ought
I to condemn everything coming from him, if he
should offer a resolution to exclude, by the Con
stitution, the participation in voting, and in
holding office, of all persons born in foreign
Here he was interrupted by Mr. Woodwaad
and the charge fully put to rest, until revived to
effect personal and political advantages :
"Mr. Woopward explained that he did not
wish to be slandered by any reporter or misrepre,
sented by any member on this floor, and he would
not allow gentlemen to impute measures and
sentiments to him which did not belong to him.
He said HE NEVER DID PROTOSE TO EX
CLUDE THE FOREIGNERS NOW IN THE
COUNTRY, FROM TOLITICAL PRIVILEGES
NOR THOSE WHO SHOULD AT ANY TIME
HEREAFTER COME TO THE COUNTRY.
He presumed the gentleman alluded to an a
mendment offered by him in Convention at liar
risburg, which proposed nothing more than an
an inquiry into expediency of preventing for
eigners who should arrive in the country after
1851, from voting or holding office. That was
an amendment to a proposition made by the
gentlemen from Chester, (Mr. Thomas,) sugges
ting an inquiry into the expediency of exclud
mir foreigners altogether from out soil, and the
amount of it was to give the proposed inquiry a
different direction from that proposed by the
gentleman from Chester. The proposition of
the gentleman from Chester, being withdrawn
Mr. Woodward explained that he withdrew his
"The gentleman from the county, (Mr. Earle)
should have represented him correctly on thi
subject if he understood it, and if he did not
understand it, he should have informed himself
before he spoke of it."
There are, however, facts of more recent oc
currence which exculpate Judge Woodward,
most clearly, from the charge of Nativeism, or
hostility to foreigners. We here quote fromhe
Butler county Democratic Herald :
"Judge Woodward, instead of being in any
wise tinctured with Nativism, he has long been
a particular object of its hostility. At the ses
sion of 1845, our Legislature had a United
States Senator to elect, to supply the vacancy
occasioned by the resignation of Mr. Buchanan.
There were in the House of representatives,
from the county of Philadelphia, eight Native
Americans, who had been elected to that body
by the coalition which the Whigs and Natives
had formed the year before, On the final ballot
the contest for Senator was between Judge
Woodward and Simon Cameron. Both candi
dates were addressed on the subject of Native-
m-rr m 1 t
ism. Juuge woouwaru replied umavoraoiy.
General Cameron replied favorably. Every Na
tive American in the Legislature and every
Whig, with the exception of Mr. Sullivan, voted
for General Cameron. Now, if Judge Wood
ward was a Native American, it is somewhat
singular the Native Americans themselves did
not know it.
"Judge Woodward's nomination in the Con
vention on the 26th of August last, was moved
by Philip Dougherty, an Irishman by birth .
and was seconded by William L. Hirst, a lead
ing and influential member of one of the Roman
Catholic Churches of Philadelphia." ?
It is well known that Judge Woodward was
the warm and efficient friend of Judge ' CAMP
BELL, in the campaign of '51, and it is known,
that Judge Campbell is now the ardent friend
and supporter of Judge Woodward.
We cannot more appropriately conclude this
article than by giving the following paragraph
from a letter from Judge Woodward, dated July
1, 1852, in raply to an invitation from the Phi
ladelphia Democracy, to attend their celebration
of the Anniversary of our National Indepen
dence. It breathes anything but a spirit of Na
tiveism. "Not only we and our children, but our fel
low men other lands have an interest as deep as
life in the success of this grand experiment of
popular government. It is their light and their
example. It keeps alive in the down trodden
masses of the old world the hope of a day of
redemption, and when "hope deferred makes
the heart sink," it invites them hither with a
welcome to enjoy with us, not only a country
abundant in all the elements of good, but the
inestimable privileges also of a government
founded in universal suffrage. That it may en
dure all its primitive capacities to blest man
kind, is the very earnest desire of the humble in
dividual whom you honored with your invita
tion. For the too kind terms in which you were
pleased to speak of him, you have his thanks.
Imbued from childhood with the principles of
democracy, he has never departed for an hour
from the path of the party. This is said in no
boastful spirit, for it is doubtful whether the
world would esteem it a virtue. A virtue or not
it has resulted from a conviction thai the democ
racy was the best organization for perpetuating
our free institutions, and securing the largest
liberty to the larger number."
Low Tricks of Jakey IIofTinn.il.
As we said, in a late article, little Jakey Hoff
man, as he is familiarly ealled in Reading, has
devoted his life to low pettifogging, and con
temptible trickery. He is utterly and wholly
incapable of imbibing an honorable sentiment,
and would infinitely prefer effecting an object by
intrigue, than by straight-forward, upright,
honorable dealing. Whenever he was a candi-
date for office, in Berks county, he attempted
to succeed by such acts as no honorable man
would resort to, and thus has acquired a char
acter that makes him shunned by the honorable
and upright members of his profession.
We will here call attention to a few of his
tricks, to show the people what kind ofa man
this Mr. Hoffman is.
While he was a candidate for the State Sen
ate, in October, 1840, he made a speech in the
borough of Kutztown, Berks county, upon the
evening before the election, pledging himself
most faithfully in favor of a division of the
county, and to support, advocate and vote for
the erection of a new county out of Berks, the
seat of justice to be Kutztown.
The Democrats of Kutztown immediately dis
patched a communication to Reading announc
ing the pledge which was given. The commu
nication was published and generally distributed
in Reading, and townships adjacent, on the
morning of the election, which drew out the fol-
lowinff blunt deni.il from Mr. TfnfFmnn. in m nn

I, therefore, pronounce it an "electioneering
trick and falsehood'' from beginning to end.
There is no time to contradict it in form.
Oct. 9, 1849. J. HOFFMAN.
Now, would it be believed, that whilst Jacob
Hoffman had this card published, in his own
hand-writing, in Reading, that Daniel Hotten
stein and others, of Kutztown held the follow
ing card, dated only six days before, also in
Hoffman's own hand-writii g. Here is his other
To Daniel K. Hottenstine, Esq., and others :
I hereby pledge myself, if elected to the Sen
ate, to support, advocate, and vote for the erec
tion of a new county out of Berks, the seat of
justice to be Kutztown. And I will not sustain
any other new county that will iuterfere with
the Kutztown application, but will give that the
exclusive preference. But I expect you to give
me a fair and full support, as indicated in my
letter. J. HOFFMAN. 1
Oct. 3, 1849.
This is the honorable and distinguished laicyer
that the Reading Journal eulogizes so highly! !
He seemed to have a letter in the pockets of
men of every interest and every faction, making
pledges directly opposite to different sections of
In addition to the above two cards, he had a
third printed circular, for the special benefit of
the citizens of Reading, which he circulated in
eTery house in the city, together with his tick
ets, promising them all kinds of reform in their
municipal and other affairs.
Thus it will be seen that Mr. noffnnn pos
sesses no other character, either at home or
abroad, than that of a political demagogue, who
would be one of the most dangerous men to
trust with power that we have had in office in
this Commonwealth since the days of Stevens,
Ritner, and company.
' We clip the following paragraphs from a let
ter from Havana, (published in the N. O. Pica
yune,) dated Havana, Aug. 81 :
j There are so many rumors floai
ting about the city as to the extent of the pre
tended conspiracy, that it is really a difficult
matter to arrive at anything like the truth ; and
were it not for the menacing tone of the daily
editorials, published in the journals, but which
I am assured are written in the Palace, I should
1 esitate in giving them any credence at all.
But I cannot imagine that the Government
would put forth such threats as you must have
observed In the papers from this place, unless
they had good cause for so doing. The reason
is this: While searching for the secret press a
short time ago, the police unexpectedly discov
ered in a house in the Calzado de St. Lazaro an
immense quantity of ball cartridges and powder.
This led to further investigations ; more cartrid
ges, &c, were found in other places, and upon
the information of a Frenchman named Fran
cisco Chapotiney Patin, who it is said has been
largely rewarded, a considerable force of caval
ry was secretly dispatched by the Government
jto an estate belonging to one Gonzales, in the
faeighborhood of San Cristoval in the Vuelto de
fibajo, which resulted in the capture of 140 men
even cases of muskets, containing eight mus
ets each, two small cannon and other ammuni
tion of war. Eighteen of the chiefs have been
brought to Havana, and upwards of 100 priso
ners are on their way here.
The boldness of the Creoles must indeed have
uadergone a charge, when, in spite of the men
aces of the Government and the certain fate
which the Spaniards do not hesitate to say a
ivaits those who were found engaged in the Voz
oel Fueblo, they should have, notwithstanding
all this, ventured to publish another clandestine
paper, which has just been issued, detailing ex
actly how the parties concerned in the Voz were
captured through the instrumentality of the
wretch Johnston, (who is threatened with the
consequences of his treachery,) and laughed to
i scorn the idea of the Government supposing that
the press from which emanated the Voz del Tu-
eblo was the only one which existed in the Is
land. It is rumored that thirteen of these se
cret presses are at work all over the Island.
Another, it is said, was captured yesterday at a
small town in the interior, called San-tiago de
los Banos, together with a few muskets, some
powder and lead.
The forts are full of prisoners, and the state
of insecurity is such that no man retires for the
night certain that before daylight he may not
be carried from his house and lodged in one of
the forts. The excitement here is intense ; but
so great is the fear of these unhappy people, as
a single word of theirs may occasion their ar
rest and punishment, that it is only to tried
triends they venture to express their hopes that
: the disaffection begun at San Cristoval may re
! suit in their favor. It is the opinion of a gen-
tleman who has resided some time on the island
i and who has had frequent opportunities of mix-
incr freely with them, that the Creoles, driven to
deFparation by the tyranny exercised over them
l J j j
by their Spanish rulers, will, rather than longer
J 1 , , .-,
submit to the sway of a people hated with a ha-
larus, invite lue iree coioreu peupic lojum mrui
if not tLe very elaTes themselves.
J when I think what could but be the result of
such an act if carried into effect, but I doubt
not that the natives of Cuba, failing to cbtain
independence of themselves, or by assistance
from abroad, will resort to that desperate ex
treme. I cannot help thinking that (knowing
the disaffection which exists throughout the Is
land to Spanish rule) had the last expedition
not been so unfortunate as to lose, at the very
onset of their disembarkation here, (through
the mitaken plan which separated Crittenden's
command, fifty of Lopez's best men,) a different
result might have been expected ; because the
same mails which conveyed the news of the ar
rival of Gen. Lopez en the Island to the people
! cf the interior, likewise conveyed the fatal in
telligence of the capture of Crittenden's forces
attempting to escape, as the Government took
care should be generally knotrn, and their has
ty execution. The natives, knowing this for a
fact could not but believe that the expedition
bad been routed from the moment of its land
ing, and consequently no efforts of theirs, with
out arms, could be available under the circnni
Several women, 6aid to be implicated in these
schemes, are also under arrest. One of these,
a Senorita Guerra, a young lady of eighteen
years of age, of surpassing beauty, was brought
here recently from Puerto Principe. It is said
it was discovered that she was in correspondence
with some expatriated relative in the North,
and at the time of her arrest was found embroi
ding the lone star flag of Cuba, besides having
been overheard to indulge rather too freely in
her opinions of the Spanish authorities.
I have this moment been positively assured
that the capture by the police, a few evenings
ago, of the supposed Voz del Pueblo, was not
the real "simon pure," but another affair alto
gether, got up by the parties apprehended at
th time, whe, becoming impatient at the nen-
appearance of the fourth number of the "Voz,"
determined to strike one off themselves, and
were so taken in the act. This is all described
in the fourth number of the true Voz del Pueb
lo, Which has made its appearance, much to the
mortification of the Government, got up inex
actly the same style as the three previous num
bers same type, size and form !
The Government has appropriated $50,000
for the relief of the sufferers by the earthquake,
and had offered a free passage to all laborers
and artisans who wished to go from Havana to
Ail newspapers from the United States are
prohibited, and it ii said that the four large
bags received by the Crescent City are under
lock and key.
The AVlilg Slanderers again Foiled.
As the children of Israel were shielded and
protected in the wilderness, from the wiles of
their enemies, so Providence now seems to pro
tect the Democratic party from the well laid,
but wicked, schemes of the Whigs to destroy it.
A most adroit slander was concocted in Balti
more, but a few days ago, to bring Gen. Pierce
into disgrace. It was represented that he had
been slapped in the face, at a social table in the
city of Mexico, by Col. Magruder of the army,
without resenting it ; and as Col. Magruder was
known to be attached the boundary survey in
New Mexico or California, it was ssupposed that
this slander could be circulated up to the time
of the election, without any friend of General
Pierce ever being able to hear from this gallant
officer. But how easily has Providence thwar
ted their wicked designs. At the very moment
that this slander was concocted, Gen. Tierce re
ceived the following highly complimentary and
friendly letter from this same Col. Magruder,
written at San Diego, in California. Whig, as
the Colonel is, he could not withhold the expres
sion of his friendly feelings towards Gen. Tierce,
as soon as he heard of his nomination, and saw
the vile course of his party friends, in attempt
ing to detract from the General's gallantry and
good conduct in every position in which he was
placed In Mexico.
The following is Col. Mngruder'a letter, which
nails the slander to the counter, as he never
would write such an epistle if Gen. Tierce had
occupied any doubtful position. It is full and
conclusive in reference to the high character of
Gen. P., for honor, integrity and gallantry t
San Diego, (Cal.) Aug. 14, 1852.
My Dear General : Permit me to tender you
my sincere congratulations upon your nomina
tion by one of the great political parties of our
country for the highest office in its gift.
Your ' companions-in-arms." whatever be
their politics, and however disinclined to mingle
with the political parties of the day, should not
be the last to express their pleasure and evince
their pride that so distinguished an honor has
been confeired upon one recently of their own
corps, who was as faithful and gallant in the
field as he was generous and kind in the social
relations which grew up upon the termination of
of the campaign. A Whig myself, and profes
sionally of the "Scott school'' of military men i
cherishing withal the fullest confidence in the I
devoted patriotism and ability, civil and milita
ry, of that eminent citizen and soldier I still
can say, in his own language, in reference to
yourself, that, if he be not elected, the choice of
the people will fall upon "a deserving man."
Here I might stop ; but I have seen in the
newspapers of the day, published in the Atlan
tic States, that there has been an attempt to
depreciate your services in the late war with
Mexico, growing out of an accident which befel
you in one of the battles in the valley an at
tempt as ungenerous in motive as it is unjust in
fact to yourself. I allude particuliarly to tho
severe accident which prevented you from ta
king a more active part in the battle of the 19th
August, and from which you suffered so much
on the 20th, at the battle of Churubusco.
Rumors put into circulation by the thought
less and malicious generally do not deserve the
attention of sensible persons ; but when an offi
cer of the army knows that a false charge is
trought through the public prints against the
reputatkn of another, however exalted or hum
ble, it becomes his duty to place at the dispesel
of the party attempted to be injured such a
statement of facts as truth and justice demand
Lathe glorious rivalry betweenyour distinguish
ed opponent and yourself, neither, . I am sure,
would value a triumph achieved by unworthy
means. I have, therefore, the honor to transmit
to you, as an act of simple justice, and without
a fear of misconstruction on either side, the ac
companying statement of facts, which acciden
tally came under my own knowledge. I do not
think so poorly of human nature as to suppose it
probable that it may become necessary or desira
ble to publish this statement ; but as I am at so
great a distance from the scene of political agi
tation, I desire to place at the disposal of your
self and friends," to make use of in any way
which circumstances may dictate.
With ray most cordial wishes, General, for
your health and happiness, I remain very faith
fully yours. J. Baxkeead Magrvtieb,

Klrst Hide on a Railroad"
We have often thought that to a person whe
saw a train of cars in motion fur the first time,
the sight must be most miraculous and astoun
ding. As Jack Downing once said, " 'twaa eo
queer to sec a hull lot of wagons chuck full of
people and things ngoin' off at that "ere speed,
and no boss to draw 'em." A genius of the sort
referred to, lately made his experimental trip.
He was a green hofn, a genuine back-woodsman,
who feared nothing in the shape of man or beast
but anything that he could not understand pua
zled him even more than it did, perhaps, the or
dinary run of his fellows. Well he came to
Cartersville, a short time since, for the purpoae
of taking his first railroad trip.
He'd hearn tell on 'em, but didn't believe, he
said, half the nonsense folks said about 'em.
When the cars arrived at the piace, our here
was there patiently waiting, and much excited
and elated in anticipating his intended ride.
As the cars approached, he stood gazing with
wonder and awe at the engine, puffing and smo
king. Following the example of the others, aa
soon as the cars stopped he hurried aboard,
with his saddle-bags on his arm, and seated
himself near a window Then looking around
j at the passengers, manifesting much surprised,
j he put his head out of the window to see the
"critter start ;" while in this position, watching
j with much anxiety, the whistle sounded. Our
hero, much surprised and evidently a little al
armed, drew back his head with a motion that
might be called a jerk, and turning to a gentle
man sitting near him, said :
'Well, stranger, did you ever Lear such a
noise ts that?"
"The engine !" suggested the ether.
"Well, I don't know what it is, but holle
how she goes ."'
"Guess yon are not acquainted with railroad
"Hang it, no ! kaint they runaway ? Crea
tion, how it jerks."
"Ita all safe enough, you may rely, the care
"That's all ; well stranger, I aint afeerd,- yo
know, but kinder surprised like, that'a all,"
said the mountain boy, half ashamed. "I, gol
ly ! stranger, did you hear that ere snort ? it
beats dad's jackaaa, and tie's a roarer no mis
take. Whew, how it does puff, somcthin' bus
tin, I'm enre."
"Oh, fudge, it's all right," said the other,
setting himself for a nap.
'I swow ! I-don't see how you can sloep,
"Nothin like getting "used to it," said the
other. "You've heard of the eeis that had beea .
skinned bo many times they rather liked it, and
used to come ashore every few days to get thsir
hide taken off, haven't you."
"You're gassin', 6tranger."
The bell rang, the engine moved away efT,
away went the cars at a rapid speed, and before
our hero had recovered from the shock which
the "enort" produced, the cars were moving
slowly over Etowah Bridge. Discovering a
change in its gait he popped his head out of the
window again, "to see how it moved," saw that
he was some distance from the earth, and sup
posing the "critter" was flying, swooned, and
fell from his seat speechless. Several gentle
men sitting near, caught hold of him, raised,
him up, shook him and rubbed him until he re
vived a little.
"This man's crazy," suggested some of the
"No, he's not," answered he, who had befere
spoken, "he's frightened."
"Yes, Beared half to death."
"About what ?"
"The cars ; he never was in a train before
he told me so."
A hearty laugh ran through those about the
half fainting man, which had the effect to arouse
him to consciousness, at least to partially so,
for his breath began to come and go, more reg
ularly, and at last he opened his eyes, as large
as saucers, and seeing several of the gentlemen
who had just come to his assistance about him
he looked up most beseechingly in the face of
one of them, and Baid "Stranger has ii lit!"
Fiay of our union.

an immense reward to any person who will reco

they will assist in the recovery of this crown.
