We this week place at the head of our paper the
names of those whom the National Convention has
:elected for the highest offices in the gift of any
Tire United States Gazette says:—
Of him who stands first, we need say nothing.
Pie voice of congratulation rings out loud and deep
where ever the announcement has reached, and
multitudes, in their enthusiasm, have testified how
deeply he is seated in the affections of the people.
The candidate for the Vice Presidency is a man
worthy of the best endeavors of the Whig party—one
whose nnme is fair and proof against assault —who
has laboured not only for the cause, but with the
statesman who is to be the President of the United
The National Intolligencer, after making brief
mention of the Presidential nomination, thus speaks
of Mr. Frelingliuysen ;
" With regard to the gentleman selected as the
Whig candidate for the Vice Presidency,Theodore
Frelinghuysen, of New Jersey, besides being a
Whig of the first order— one who stood side by
side in the Senate with Mr.lClay for many years—
is a citizen of character so pure and unimpeachable
that malignity Itself would not dare to utter a sylla
ble to his prejudice."
Mr. Clay on the Annezation of
Henry Clay has written a Letter to the National
Intolligencer on the subject of the Annexation of
Texas to the United States, which will be read
with great interest and satisfaction. Its frank and
manly sentiments will endear the distinguished
author still more to the people of the Union.
The Editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer remarks in
reference to it, that " it has given great satisfaction
in that city not only to the political friends of the
distinguished author, but to hundreds of others who
cherish national honor and national honesty, as of
far more importance than partisan views or purpo
ses. The letter is regarded not only as a glorious
emanation from the mind of a great statesman,but as
the legitimate offspring of the heart of a true patriot.
The views throughout are calm, dignified, truthful,
Christian, Republican and American. They are
expressed in clear and forcible, chaste as Well as ele
gant language. It is really refreshing to read such
a paper upon so grave and important a subject. Its
persual is calculated to make one love his country
more, and at the same time, to encourage and stim
ulate the noblest emotions and principles of the hu
man heart. This letter will decide many a doubt
ing mind,as to the impropriety of annexing Texaeun
der the circumstances. 'We have heard it praised
warmly and generously by individ'ls who are know:.
to us as decided in their political opposition to Mr.
Clay. It may be read with pleasure, because o( its
pacific doctrines—because of the earnest and elo
quent manner in which it sustains good faith and
national honer; because of the manly spirit it in•
culcates, in relation to week and strong national
antagonists; and because of the patriotic views which
it embodies, in relation to the preservation of the
Union. livery Whig must feel proud of this doc
ument and its sentiments, every Christian must
commend and applaud them."
We will publish the letter next week.
Mr. Van Duren on the Annexation
Martin Von Buren has also written a letter, to
ono of his political friends, on the Texas Question.
The letter-was published in the Washington Globe,
and filled about seven columns of that paper. The
effect of this letter upon the Locofocos is well des
cribed in the following extract from "Oliver Old
echoer." letter of the 28th ult.
" Great has been the commotion in the locofoco
camp, to-day. Had a bomb fallen among the party
as they oat in conclave the consternation could
scarcely have been greater than that produced by
Mr. Van Buren's letter in the Globe of last evening,
on the subject of Texas. Those of his party from
the South were committed to annexation, and most
confidently anticipated that Mr. Van Buren would
go with them for it; and when, yesterday morning,
Mr. Clay's letter appeared in the Intelligencer,
against annexation, they exulted in the hope of
having a new issue made up with the Whigs. You
can perhaps imagine their confusion and dismay
when they found their own man had taken the
same ground. They have been, to-day, gathered
together,in little knots and squads, in every part of
the city, looking cross, anxious, perplexed and puz
zled. One of the leading members of the House, on
being rallied this evening upon the position in
which they stood, jocosely remarked that he had
not made up his mind whether to swear he had al
ways been opposed to annexation and for Von Bu
ren, or always for annexation and and opposed to
Van Buren, hut one or the other he would swear
to-morrow: he would think of it to-night--consult
his pillow, as the phrase is. So you see, they per
ceive that they must either give up annexation or
surrender Van Buren. Mr. Calhoun, Mr. Wilkins
and Mr. Wickliffe, have been out to-day, apparently
extremely busy, in various parts of the city.—
Whether their visits to different messes had any
thing to do with the future operations or determi
nation of the party, I cannot say, but they are all
annexation men, and I learn that it has been propo
sed by some of the Southern locos to form a South
ern party at once, not with the view of opposing
Mr. Clay's election, but his administration, and
putting Mr. Calhoun forward as the Southern can
didate for 1848. If this is done, the present cam
paign will be given up and allowed to go by default,
or at least no strenuous opposition will be made to
Mr. Clay's election. Mr. Tyler, I presume, on the
other hand, will now press himself forward, under
the banner and with the shiboleth of "Tyler and
Texas." What number of votes he will be able to
obtain, remains to be seen: where the first is to
come from. indeed I am unable to say.
I learn that the friends of Col. Jol;Uson have had
their hopes revived by this movementof Mr. Van
Buren, and have written to the Colonel to-day to
push forward for the Presidency."
Nearly all the Locofoco papers in the country,
from the Washington Globe down to the very least
of them, had broken ground for annexation ; and
some had already denounced our candidate for the
Presidency as a traitor to his country because he
opposed the measure. They will now " turn about
and wheel about" and begin again on a different
track, or go the whole swine for " Tyler and Tex
as," a fit association.
cO" lion. Charles J. Ingersoll has said that had
he lived in the days of the Revolution, he would
have been a Tory. In a recent speech upon the
Oregon question, ho said
" No man admires or respects the English more
than I do; no man has more reason to venerate
them, for I believe every drop of soy blood is En
glish, and as I have been very often reproached,
some of it canto from a Tory ancestor."
So it seems that Mr. Ingersoll has really "defi
ned his position." Some of his locofoco friends
have doubted that he formerly professed any friend
ship for the tories ; but he has " let the cat out of
the bag"--he stands before the people a leader of
the locofoco party, and acknowledges that "every
drop of his blood is English," and that " some of it
came from a Tory ancestor." Of course he will
always, either directly or indirectly, oppose the
American Protective System. He cannot be expec
ted to do otherwise.—Forum.
Ma. Emilia sometimes hear the
question asked, si Who shall be out next
Sheriff?" a question in which the people
generally feel considerable interest. In
looking over the newspapers of our county,
I see that but one person—Jacob Straight
hoof—has yet otnred himself as a candi
date for that important office. It is, how
ever, whispered by some, that they sup
pose that Mr. Such•a-one and Mr. So-and
so are trying to get the nomination• Now,
I ask you, Mr. Editor, and the people of
the county, whether every person who
wishes and hopes to be the candidate of his
party, ought not, like the candidate above
named, come out publicly, or if he has
friends who wish him to be the candidate,
whether they should not announce their
prelenence to the electors. Secret nomi
nations must sooner or later prove ruinous
to any party that suffers them. The dele
gate system, when not abused, is a good
one; but what must be thought when a
convention of delegates place in nomina•
tion a candidate who is afraid to give his
name to the public before the delegates are
chosen by the people? Conventions are
intended for the purpose of canvassing the
CLAIMS, the COMPETENCY and the AVAILL
HILITY of the different candidates before
the public, and to select one from the
number for the whole party to unite upon.
But when there is but one candidate,
what necessity can there be for a conven
tion 1 It would be a wholesome rule if
the convention would consider no man a
candidate for nomination who does not, at
least ten days before the time for electing
delegates, announce himself as such alone
or more of the newspapers in the county, or
by handbills, so that the people could
elect delegates understandingly.
The same rule might, in toy, opinion,
with much propriety be extended to can
didates fur the other offices of the county.

The Valley Furnace is situate on Silver

Beds of Anthracite Coal and Strata of
Iron Ore are opened for work, close by the
stack. The public railway runs by the
works, giving a daily communication at all
seasons, with the city of Philadelphia.
Limestone is cheaply had by canal or rail
he ore is exactly the same as that of the
coal fields of Great Britain, from which
neale all the iron is made in that country.
It fluxes very easily. The black band"
iron stone, from which the Scotch gray iron
is made, exists in this coal basin; but no
search has beer made for workable beds,
the discovery being recent.
The Furnace is newly built, with a good
steam engine and blowing. apparatus. Its
yield is about 35 tons weekly, and there is
an extensive consumption of Iron in the coal
district. There is no other Furnace in wor
