"The principal objects which, I suppose, engage
the common desire and the common exertions of
the Whig party, to bring about, in the Government
of the United States are :
I. A BOUND NATIONAL, CURRENCY, regulated by
the will and authority of the nation.
2. AN ADEQUATE nEvEsus, with fair protec

INPORTANT TO ADOPTED CITIZEN/1.-The N •
York Express, of Saturday, says The decision
of the Supreme Court, that the Marino Court of
New York city is not one of Record, is of the
greatest consequence to a very large number of
naturalized citizens, or citizens who have hitherto
supposed that they were naturalized. Persons who
have been long residents in the city of New York
will not fail to recollect that the large mass of for
eigners who have gone through the process of law
for the purpose of acquiring the rights of citizens,
have attained their rights through the Marine
Court. It now appears that all that has been done'
in this respect haS been illegal. The decision dis
franchises a great part of the foreign voters in this
city and state, and will have a tremendous effect in
the coming elections ; to say nothing of the invali
dation of titles of Real Estate. The Judges who
have made this important decision in the two high- .
est Courts are not Whig Judges, but all of them,
we believe, of Democratic politics. It has been re
cently decided at New Orleans that the naturali
zation papers avail nothing when procured withuut
authority of law and the proper courts of law. If
the decision is to prevail hero, the effect will be to
undo what has been illegally done for more than
thirty years past.
A few Serious Thoughts.
Under this caption we find a most ex•
cellent article in the National Intelligen
ces of the 3d inst., which should be care
fully read by every friend of law and or
der in this country. In order that our
citizens may have an opportunity of pe
rusing it, we give the entire article a place
in our columns to-day, confident that the
sentiments it contains, are such as can
rot fail to meet the approbation of every
patriot in the land. The Intelligencer
"We have reached a crisis in the con.
dition of our country that demands the
serious reflection of every one that prop
erly appreciates the supremacy of law, of
good order, and the stability of our in
stitutions. It is not to be denied that
for many years past there has been a great
falling-01TM the moral tone of society,
and paticular'ly in that portion connect..
ed with the administration of the Govern
ment. We have seen whole communi
ties convulsed by reckless associations of
individuals, taking the law into their own
hands, to the extreme of putting to death
citizens of the country in the most sum
mary and cruel manner, as lately in the
case of the Mormon Joe Smith and his
brother. We have seen a district of coun
try rise up against the ministers of the
law, and with brute force drive them front
the performance of their duties; as in the
case with the "Patron') Manor." in the
State 01 New York. We have seen Mobs,
again and again, pot all the authorities of
a city at defiance, and conflagrate churches
and destroy property ; and, more recent.
ly, we have seen a mob in its fury resis
ting the civil and military authorities with=
all the dread consequences of civil strife.
We have seen the highest functionaries
of incorporated institutions bring them
to bankruptcy by fraud and robbery; we
have seen States, unmindful of every high
and solemn moral and just obligation, re•
pudiate their debts, and beggar their cred
itors; we have seen numbers of the offi
cers of the General Government violate
their oaths of office, and by spec
ulation, peculation, and fraud, become de
faulters to the aggregate amount of mill
ions of dollars. tinier the eye and sanc
tion of the Executive we have seen a par
ty press appealing to elle worst passions
of the masses to divide society into two
great parties, the rich ihd the poor, as
antagonist in all their ob,kt, and usg i n,

terembi of the country T During that per

of the Republic have been repudiated.—
In selections for office, it is no longer in
quired lie honest ? is he capable ?"
A new code of ethics has been introduced
in the memorable maxim To the vic
tors belong the spoils;" and, in consonance
with this piratical creed, the only quvs•
tion that has been asked is, What has
he done for our party ?" The consequence
has been that profligate and unqualified
persons have been invested with office,
who when they have not robbed it where
they should have protected it, have, from
ignorance and indulgence, left undone
what they should have done. This prin
ciple of rewarding the " rabble followers of
the camp," has raised up an army of
mercenaries that hover around the Gov
ernment like vultures over a carcase ; and,
for what they can do, not less than tor
what they have dot e, legion in number,
they g et access to the ear of power, and
poison it with false and pestilential sug
gestions. It is thus that they virtually
administer the Government by their dic
tation, corrupt it by their profligacy, and
weaken it by their ignorance.
We appeal to the candid even among
the true friends of the Administration%
referred to, to say whether these evils
have not been seen and felt for some
3 ears past
We lad no such doings in the days
of Jefferson and Madison and Monroe
and Adams. The prosperity and the
honor of the country were the great ob
jects to which they looked. They too,
were party men, but it was party tem
pered with justice, and party regulated
by patriotism. There was a moral power
in the virtue and grandeur of those men
that was felt in every member of their
Administrations and in the pulse of the
whole cowry. There was to be seen,
with such exceptions only as indicated
the infant struggles of the new party
which afterwards obtained the ascendacy,
a respect for the laws, a fidelity in the
discharge of every trust, and a reverence
for all the social relations of life, that
made us a peculiar people zealous of
good works. These great virtues faded
away as the new party grew in strength,
and at length lost their ascendency in
the Government under the influences of
modern democracy, with its ruinous ex
periments and its tyrannical intolerance.
Now, then, is the time fin• us to re•
solve to arrest the downward progress of
the Government, and restore it, in all its
integrity, to its ancient glory. The choice
between the evil anti the good is now be
fore us, and the men and the measures
di it are striving for power. In Mr. Pout
we see a willing and unhesitating advocate
of the ruinous measures of his party,
bound by pledges to carry on and carry
out the work of his predecessors, which
has once bankrupted a whole country,
and has pampered a spirit of licentious
liberty and insubordination which has
shaken our institutions to their founda
tion. In Mr. CLAY we have any thing,
and everything but this. Far from be
longing to this modern school of propa
gandists, he dates back to the fathers of
the country, from whom he took his first
lessons, and with whom he served in
unity and in spirit. Through an event
ful public life of more than forty years,
he has been a steadfast champion of his
country, and faithful to the teachings of
the schools of our Revolutionary fathers.
In all his notions of Government he is
oldfashioned. He always has been anx
ious that the Ship of State should be
steered by the chart laid down by the
framers of our Confederacy; and it is now
the great desire of his life to bring back
our Government from the wayward wan
derings of false teachers to the peaceful
and better days when JEFFERSON and
MADISON pointed out the way and the
There is not a patriot in this country
that would not rejoice to see the Admin
istration of the Government restored to
its early virtue and efficiency. Through
out all our borders, who so well fitted
for this great task as Mr. CLAY ? His age,
his experience, his talents, his firmness,
and his principles mark him above all
others as the man for the times.
If we entertained any doubt of Mr.
CLAY being the choice of the People upon
his own merits, we would appeal to the
friends of Law and Order all over the
county in consideration of the foregoing
views of the subject, to lay aside all
minor considerations and unite in fa
vor of that candidate for the Presi•
dency whose claims to public confidence
are based upon respect for the laws of
his country, for the morals of his country,
and tor its duties as a member of the
family of nations. In support of such a
cause and such a man to represent it,
how can we permit ourselves to doubt
that not the Whigs alone, but all who
place a proper value upon Liberty, sus
ta:•ne►l and guaranteed by Law, will ral
ly to 'he polls, when the trine comes, and
ensure to the cause and its representa
tives a glorious victory 7

The death of the Hon. lIENny A
Mt lILENBERG renders is incumbent upon
the bicolor() pat ty to choose a new can
didate for the office of Governor of Penn
Sylvania, and although it would perhaps
have been more consistent with propriety
and a proper respect for the dead, to have
waited until the last sad rites were per
formed upon his mortal remains, never
theless toensute have already been taken
to place a new man in the field. Imme
diately upon the reception in this place
and Philadelphia of the melancholy intel
ligence, a meeting of the bicolor() State
Central Committee was called to deter
, mine upon the course to be pursued.—
The Committee met in this borough on
Tuesday last, and issued a call for the
re-assembling of the late fourth of March
Convention, which placed Mr. M uhlen
ber in nomination, on the second day of ,
September next, to select a new candidate
to he supported by the bicolor() party 01
Pennsylvania as Governor of the Com
The following is the resolution as pub
fished in the address of tl.e Committee.
Resolved, That the afflicting decease of
Henry A. Mulllenberg be forthwith an
nounced to the Democracy of Pennsylva
nia, and that the members of the Demo
cratic Convention held on the 4th of
March last, be earnestly requested to re
assemble at Harrisburg, on MONDAY,
the 2,1 of SEPTEMBER, 1844, at 10
o'clock, A. M., to numinate a candidate
for the °like of Governor.
Thus much for the official proceedings
of the representatives ut the party in this
afflictive dispensation. Their determina
tion to re-assemble the old Conven.
Lion instead of taking measures :o convene
a new one fresh from the ranks of the
people, is regarded by many as premoni
tory of another triumph of the friends of
Mr. Mhhlenberg over the Shunk division
of the party, who now since the death of
his rival is certainly the most prominent

fluence of the present State Administra•
lion was exerted in favor of Mr. Muhien.
berg, and it is presumed that that influ
ence, coupled lth old prejudices may
still defeat the nomination of Mr. SUUNX.
For our own part we cannot think so.—
We regard the nomidatimi of Francis R.
Shunk almost a thing of course, notwith
standing it is very evident he will still
meet with bitter opposition in the Conven
tion, and among the leaders and rank and
file of the Muhlenberg faction. The ex•
citetnent among the Locofoco politicians
is very great. A number of their most
distinguished wire-workers from Philadel
phia and elsewhere are already in town,
laying plans and concocting schemes to
elfect the nomination of this or that man,
and again detest Mr. Shunk. Among the
most prominent spoken of in opposition
are the Hon. JAMES BUCHANAN, and the
Elan. DANIEL STURGEON, our present U.
S. Senator, and Mr. BELL of Chester.—
That one of these men will be pitted
against Mr. Shank is very evident, though
as we before remarked, we incline to the
opinion that Mr. S. will be the success
It matters little, however to the Whigs
who is to be invested by our opponents
with the doubtful honor of political mar
trydom. We hope they will take their

will be, they will have no excuse to

than there are Locofocos, and it they hut

as every good citizen should do, GEN.
M ARKLE, the Whig Candidate has nosh
ing to fear from whoever the Locolocos
may nominate, be he Shook, Sturgeon,
Bell, •• Pennsylvania's favorite son," or
any body else.
THE POLI ITJAL PRESS,
No one who has been in the habit of
glancing at the different Nikkei journals
of the day, can fail to have been struck
with the remarkable tact, that, while the
Whigs confine themselves to ,a discussion
of the measures of the two parties, refer
ence to their effect upon the welfare of the
people. the Locofocos indulge profusely
in the bitterest personal calumnies against
our candidate. Tell them that the Whig
Tariff has been beneficial in its operation,
and ought nut to be repealed, and they re
ply by asserting that Mr. Clay planned
the murder of alley. Talk ut a National
Bank in opposilion to their Sub-Treasury
scheme, and they revive the exploded tale
of " bargain and corruption" in the elec
tion of Mr. Attains. Point to the abuse of
the veto power under Locolocoism, and
the retort is, behold a gambler and duellist.
Indicate the advantages of Mr. Clay's plan
for distributing the proceeds of the public
lands, and you are answerrd, he is a Sab•
bath-breaker. This is not mere declama
tion. Laying down the Democratic Re
view, we take tip the Richmond Enquirer
of July 30th. Here are three closely
printed columns devoted to the revival of
the oftentimes disproved story of "bargain
and corruption!" We turn to the Mob,
of the next Jay, and find its editorial page
disgraced by it puerile conceit which can
not fail to make even Locofocoism blush.
The figure ut a man in outline is fot mol
by types; above is an escutcheon, on
which is pictured a brandy bottle, a corks
screw, a pack of cards, and a pistol
"shoot lower." Under this chaste
design arc the words “war, pestilence, and
fimine,” while the letters, do:prised PO es
to form th- li,m e ni a mad, embody all the
grossest libels that have been published
for the last twenty years against Mr. Clay.
And all this appears in the official organ nt
Washington of the went party who stand
opposed to the Whigs. While we regret,
for the credit of the country, to see the
press degraded by such an exhibition of
witless and malignant buffoonery, we are
rijoiced to find that the enemy's cause is
as incapable of being sustained by solid
argument, and by any appeals to the good
sense of every honest stein, that they are
compelled to adopt the inost discreditable
devices in order to excite the passions of
the people andanislead their judgment.--
We have more faith in the intelligence of
the American people than to imagine,
however, that they are to be blinded to
their true interest by any such outrages
upon decency and truth.—New York Re
A STEAMBOAT EXPLOSION AND
LOSS OF LI FE,
The Philadelphia Inquirer of the 17111
says:—A lamentable accident occurred
on the Delaware River. immediately op
posite the city, within a few minutes of
9 ..'clock on Tuesday morning. The
strait - moat Portsmouth, while on her way
from Arch street wharf to Cape May,
and when off Walnut street wharf, col
lapsed a flue or steam chimney, by which
large quantities of steam and hot water
were discharged, to the serious injury
of several, and with fatal consequences
to one or two persons on board. For the
moment much cotr.teroation prevailed,
as there were between 40 and 50 passen
gers on board, and it was impossible at
first to ascertain the extent of the (homage.
the, cries and appearance of the injured
were appall ing.
Mit.'l Imams Massey, an elderly gen
tleman from Newcastle, Delaware, was
scalded so fiightlully, that he died in the
course of the morning at the Hospital.—
Mr. Isaac Ames, of New York, the first
engineer, was scalded, but not severely.
Mr. Stevens, the second engineer, was
in a deplorable condition, experienced
horrible agony, and in Paroxysm of pain
and madness Jumped into the river. He
was re-curd, and taken to the Hospital,
where his wounds were dressed and at
tended to. A fireman was also sadly
scalded and was taken to Bloodgood's
Hotel, at the foot of Walnut street. The
poor fellow presented a heart rending
spectacle, and it was feared that he would
not sun vise. Mr. H. paid him every at
tention, and sent him to the Hospital on
a mattressed settee. Gilbert ,Jackson,
a colored cook, of New York, was scal
ded on the hands and arms—and it is
said another colored man sprung over
board in a fright, and was drowned.—
Most of the passengers were aft at the
time of the accident, and thus escaped.
Aid was immediately rendered by the
New Jersey, the State Rights, and sev
eral ferry boats, and after the passengers
were all taken ell' s the Portsmouth was
towed up to Kensinzton by the State
Rights, to be repaired. The boat came
but recently from New York, and has
been running excursion trips to Cape
May : It is to be hoped that a clue inves•

accident, for the public cannot be too sen•
sitive in relation to human life. Captain

"THAT SAME OLD COON,"
Our coon, like his twin brother of the Philadel
phia Forum, insists upon showing himself to the
public to day; and as we are undoubtedly victori
ous, so fur as North Carolina, Kentucky and Indi
ana are concerned, we cannot " fond it in our hearts"
to deprive him of his rights. Therefore, he appears
at the head of this column, "as large as life," and,
(as a down easter would say,) "twice as natural."
