The Spring Elections.---Judges and
Inspectors—Secret Scheme of the
jhe Spring Elections, for Judges and Inspectors
of the next General and Presidential Elections, and
for borough and township officers, will take place
on Friday next, the 15th day of March inst.—
Our Whig and Antimasonic friends must be on the
alert, and rally their whole strength at these elec
tions, as they will have an important bearing on
the fall elections.
A secret circular issued by a committee of the
loco foco members of the Legislature, has just come
to light, in which they earnestly urge the Van Bit
ten party to make o desperate effort to secure the
election of Judges and inspectors in the various
districts of the Commornwealth. This circular,
has, we learn, been freely circulated over the whole
State, and some of them have fallen into the hands
of good Whigs. We extract the following:
The democratic members, anxious to arouse
tbeir brethren throughout the state to a sense of the
danger which threatens their cause and their prin
ciples, have determined to make an effort to save
the party from defeat, secure its principled and res
cue this good old Conunohwealth from the inglo
rious position she took in the campaign in 1940.
As a preliminary measure, to the great contest in
the fall, the Whigs have determined, if possible to
secure a large number of the Judges and Inspectors
at the spring election; if they are successful in this,
you will readily perceive the power which the oppo.
aim will wield. It is distinctly understood that the
Whig party intend to secure an advantage in the
manner we have indicated. It therefore, becomes
she duty of every democrat to exert himself and
arouse hie friends, and warn them of the danger
which threatens his ward, borough or township, and
thus secure a large turnout at the election for Judges
and Inspectors. This done we shall have the van
tage ground, and an easy victory will be the recut.
The democratic members desire that you would
communicate these facts to such of our political
friends in your ward, borough or township, as will
take an interest in adopting such measures as will
uphold and sustain the party.
• • 00000
The contents of this letter should be made
known only to such of our friends as will keep their
own counsel, and assist in organizing the party ;
and it is very desirable that it ahould not appear
its any newspaper, or be communicated to our po
litical opponents. The most efficient organization
can be made without a noise or confusion."
Thin Circular, says en exchange paper, asserts
that "the Whip have determined to secure en ad
vantage" in the election of Judges and Inspectors
at the Spring elections, meaning to convey the im
presbion that the Whigs have been guilty of the
tame disreputable means of operatingsecrelly upon
that party friends to arousethem to action, in which
his committee of grave legislators, have thus oppor
tunely be. detected. This assertion is entirely
trratuitoue, and we challenge them for the evidence
of any hatch secret movements on the part of the
Whip. The Whigs are open sod above board in
'their political action, and we trust that this devel
epement of the tactics of the stn y, will sroue'
them to redoubled exertions to maintain their rights
at the ballot box.
Arouse, then, Whigs! Let every friend of Cloy,
see to this matter and lend his hand to promoting
the organization of our party without delay, that
we may meet our opponents in full strength on the
15th inst. The Locos must be watched, and
watched closely. Their hopes are desperate they
Well know, and they are ready and willing to resort
to any means, to prop up their sinking fortunes.
Fanners, Mechanics, Laborers, friends of Clay
and the Tariff! rally to the rescue on Friday next.
Exert every energy to carry your borough 'end
township elections, and determine to frustrate the
secret plans by which your opponents are endeavor
ing to defeat the hopes of the people in October
next. Carry these elections, and with fair play
next fall, Clay, Markle, and the whole Whig and
Antimasonic County Ticket will be elected by an
easy and glorious triumph!
