Public Meeting for the Discussion of
Last week a handbill was potted up at the most
conspicuous places in this borough and neighbor•
hood, inviting the Whigs end the Locofocos to a
meeting at the Old Court House, on Wednesday
evening, to discuss the Tariff question and other
Whig principles. It was announced that J. S.
Stewart, Esq. would address the meeting on the
subject of the Tariff; after which any Locofoco
would have an opportunity to reply. Notice was
also given that A. K. Cornyn and A. W. Benedict,
Esqrs. would address the meeting on the various
issues involved in the present Presidential contest.
Accordingly, on Wednesday night, the transpa
rency exhibiting, among other things, that "Same
old Coon" by the light of the moon, was brought
out, and carried through the streets, accompanied
with martial music ; and a large number of citizens
joined in procession and proceeded to the appointed
place, where the meeting was organized by calling
Dr. William Swoop° to the Chair, and appoixting
Elias Baker, William Summers, E. Galbraith Esq.
and Abner Lloyd Vice Presidents: after which a
pair of Coon songs were sung by the minstrels.
REMARKS or .1. S. STEWART, ESQ.
MR. STEWART then appeared upon the ros
trum and spoke for nearly an hour in an able and
effective argument in favor of the Protective Sys
tem. he stated that he was occupying a curious
position—that he had all along acted with the Lo
cofoco party—that upon a full review and candid
consideration of the principles and actions of the
two parties, he found good reason to CHANGE RIDES.
The Tariff, said he, belongs peculiarly to the
Whigs. Formerly it was but a dividing question
between the North and South. Now it is the di
viding question between the Whigs and the Locos.
The Whigs have arrayed themselves under the
Tariff banner, and the Locofocos oppose it. The
Whigs enacted and sustain that measure of such
vital importance to the United States, and especially
to Pennsylvania. The Locos opposed, and still
assail it. an the friends of the Tariff—of Penn
sylvania interests—hesitate as to the taking of sides
in this contest. Mr. S. here defined the Tariff—
dwelt at considerable length upon its operation—
and illustrated its beneficial effects by various ex
amples—showed that it was essentially necessary
for the protection of home industry, and to obviate
here the low wages of foreign countries—and that
the Whigs contend for the Tariff as a Protective
and a Revenue measure—that discriminations are
made so that the rich who sport the costly clothe,
silks and other fineries of foreign importation, pay
the greater portion of the duties, as they aro well
able to do; thus giving the poor a chance to be
come rich, as many do in this country.
Mr. S. also spoke of the beneficial effects of the
Tanff as a measure of protection to the farming
interests. That it affords a home market for agri
cultural products at our manufacturing establish
ments. He also pointed out its intimate connexion
with the general prosperity of the
Mr. S. termed the Tariff the king measure of this
contest—the king measure of this country, the
queen of the ocean. What, said he, gave us a gleam
of prosperity and confidence a year or two ago?
Was it not because we now and then heard of a
ship-load of specie landing at some of our porta,
affording a circulating medium and giving life to
business? What but the Protective Tariff caused
He wound up by saying that he arrived at the
conclusion that the Tariff is essential to the pros
perity and happiness of this country ; and that James
K. Polk is not the man to carry out this principle.
Mr. Cloy is the man for this measure—he has al
ways taken the first jump in defence of his country
when threatened with danger. And finally Mr. S.
repeated that the Tariff is peculiarly a Pennsylva
nia measure, and in view of this, declared it the
duty of all to strike for Clay and glory.
Here the President gave notice that if there was
any gentlemen of the Locofoco kink in the house,
who wished to reply, the meeting would be pleased
to hear him. But no one appeared, to answer the
argument of Mr. Stewart.
REMARKS OF A. K. CORNYN. Esq.
MR. CORNY N, was then called for, and re
sponded in an eloquent speech of about half an
hour's duration. He stated that he felt a deep and
abiding interest in the present contest, aside from
the political principles at stake, and which must be
determined in this campaign. The country has
reached a crisis and Mr. Clay is the only man
that could repulse and avert the impending clouds
that threaten destruction.
He regretted that the Locofocos did not appear
and juin issues with us fairly. He knew, however,
that our opponents dreaded this way of conducting
Mr. C. referred to the Locofoco meeting at Lew
istown, two weeks ago. lie was present and saw
the gathering, and heard the speeches. The great
men of the party—the "big guns" from abroad
were to be present to address the meeting, and the
people flocked in from all parts of Mifflin and basin
from adjoining counties. They expected to hear
masterly speeches, and expositions of the principles
of the party, great National principles. But the
people were sadly disappointed. Ono man talked
about the Huntingdon Bteak—another talked of
the Buck-shot It third of the Imprisonment
of Dar—a fourth of Native Americanism and the
imprisonment of O'Connell in Ireland. H. N.
M'Allister, Esq., alone argued the Tariff question
honestly and fairly; and he took the erroneous
ground that a Tariff is a tax upon the consumer of
imported articles. In short he advocated the Free
Trade or Low Revenue Tariff doctrines of James
K. Polk and the southern Locofocos. The people
were disappointed in nearly all that was said; and
the remarks of Mr. Mc. did not seem to take well,
though they were the principles of James K. Polk.
The Whir avow their principles openly and fair
ly, and the United Stotts know them by heart.—
We are tar a Protective Tariff. The Locofocos
! carry the "Tariff of 1842" on their banners
through the streets. But they opposed it at every
step in its progress through Congress. Mr. Van
Buren denounced the Tariff of 1842 in his Indional
letter, both as to principle and detail. Yet the La
cofocos of this State, after this denunciation by Mr.
Van Duren, declared in his favor at the 4th March
Convention. James K. Polk, was, however, nom-
Mated—dug up from the filth of two inglorious de
feats in Tennessee. His principles are Free Trade
and Texas! This shows what the Locos care for
the Tariff of 1842. John Snyder represented the
13th Congressional district of this State in 1942,
and opposed the Tariff. In 1843 he was a candi
date for re-election. The Tariff was made the tent
—the watchword and the war-cry; and Henry
Frick, his competitor defeated him by a handsome
majority. Gen. Frick died, and at a special elec
tion in the same 13th district, John Snyder was
again the Locofoco Free Trade candidate, and Jas.
Pollock beat him by an overwhelming majority.—
The eyes of Locofocoirim were turned to the 13th
district, and the result alarmed the party. They
saw that Pennsylvania would go for the Tariff in
spite of the charm of democracy; and straightway
they resorted to schemes of deception. They had
deceived the people a long while with regard to the
Banks, and they flattered themselves they could
gull them into the belief that they, the Locofocos,
were in favor of the Tariff; and for this reason we
now see them inscribe upon their banners 4 , The
Tariff of 1842."
The Whigs, said Mr. C., are in favor of the Dis
tribution of the proceeds of the sales of the Public
Lands. This is a measure which Gen. Jackson
first recommended. Mr. Clay then declared in favor
of it—proposed a plan of Distribution—and has
adhered to the measure ever since ; but the Locofo
cos or modern democrats have got wonderfully
wrong on this subject.
The Locofocos are in favor of Texas, said the
speaker, Polk, Dollas and Texas against Henry
Clay and the United States. We do not want
Texas—we want no war with Mexico. Neither
were the Locofocos in favor of annexation of Texas
when Mr. Van Buren's letter was written and put
The assaults upon the private character of Mr.
Clay were noticed by Mr. C. They would be a
dark spot upon the history of our country. He re
verted to the remarks o f Mr. Shepperd—the Rever
end Mr. Shepperd—at the Locofoco meeting held
here on the 13th—slanders that would be disgrace
ful to the vilest blackguard in the country. Mr.
C. also called to recollection the many noble, manly,
and virtuous acts of Mr. Clay. Do you suppose,
said he, that if the slanders alluded to were true,
the christians of all sects and the members of all
parties would honor Mr. Clay ? Would he be cal
led on to sit as the Moderator when religious dis
cussions were to be had in his neighborhood? No,
no—it will not do. We will route these slanderers
from Maine to Georgia, and they will not have a
President for the next century. They have deceiv
ed the people too long already.
Mr. C. stated, in conclusion, that Mr. Cooper
proposed at Lewistown, to discuss their principles
with the locofocos ; but they refused. The Loco
focos will discuss no principles—they have none to
discuss, and they try to steal what few poor John
REMARKS OP A. W. BENERICT, ESQ..
MR. BENEDICT, was now called for and
next mounted the rostrum. He commenced by
stating that the bill calling the meeting, was put up '
unknown to him. But he was ever willing to dis
cuss our principles, and if the Locofocos had any,
he would be willingto discuss them. He remarked
that there are some things connected with this con
test, as with all others, to be deplored: he referred to
the assaults made upon the character of Our candi
date for the Presidency. But, aside from this, the
contest presents issues highly important to the
country. The Locofocos have had the reins of gov
ernment in their hands for a long while, with but
little interruption. And what is the condition of
the country? What is her credit and charaCter at
home and abroad? At one time her name, her
word, and her bonds were good even in the "celes
tial city." What is her credit and her character
now? She cannot borrow a dollar. This, said
Mr. 8., may be considered hard talk of one's coun
try; but is it not true! And who has placed us
into this condition ? It is in vain to accuse the
i Whigs of being the cause of this. What, said he,
would be thought of a fellow who would drive a
wagon into the mud till he would stick fast, and
then blame a footman who was passing him on the
other side of the road, on dry ground, with being
the cause of his folly? And yet this is what the
Locofocos do daily. They have been striving the
government wagon—they have brought disaster up
on us; and now the poor Whigs who have been
footing it all the time in an opposite direction, are
to bear the blame. The Locofocos have had the
power. What measures have they proposed—
what principles have they advocated for 20, for 15,
for 10, or even for 5 years ? They have deserted
all. Like the fellow that is making the "perpetual
motion," and hasit all accomplished except the last
peg, and is awfully bothered to know where to
drive that, the Locofocos have perfected their sys
tem of government, and Texas is the last peg they
have to drive! The Whigs propose certain issues
to the people--Henry Clay and the Tariff—Distri
bution—National Currency, &c. The Locolocos
say Polk is as good a Tariff man as Clay. Here
Mr. B. reviewed the history of Mr. Clay from the
time of his first entrance into the halls of Legisla
tion down to the present day ; which proved most
conclusively that he was the early, the firm, and the
untiring friend of the Protective System. Mr.
Polk's history was also reviewed in the same man
ner, which proved him to be the opponent of Pro
tection—untiring, unchanging in his opposition.—
The Locofocos in this state now claim to he friends
of the Tariff. And why Because they see they
must do this in order to save their own skins. But
it won't do—they can't thus gull the people.
Mr. B. pointed out the inconsistency of the Lo
cos in opposing the Distribution of the Proceeds of
the Sales of the Public Lands; and in opposing
the Assumption of State Debts and at the same time
favoring the Annexation of Texas and the Assump
non of her ten millions of Debt. Ile commented
with some severity upon the remarks of some of
the Locofoco speakers at their Convention here on
the 13th! One of them said that some of the
manufacturers in this county buy pork at 4 cents a
pound and then sell it to their "hands" for 12i.—
The same man, said Mr. 8., does the name thing.
Out upon such contemptible demagogues! He
wondered if Geo. R. M'Farlane recollects that he
wrote a Free Trade letter two or three years ago !
But no matter—that gentleman's political principles
arc like Joseph's coat, of many colors—and it so
happens that he always can turn towards the people
whatever colour they admire most. Every thing ,
said Mr. 8., that benefits the employer benefits the
employed. None but demagogues will array tho
poor against the rich. All that a mechanic seeks is,
plenty of work, fair wages and good pay. We are
all dependent upon each other. If you find a man
going round telling the poor man that he has a
hard master &c., that man is an enemy to his kind
—a demagogue at heart.
In conclusion Mr. B. made a proposition to meet
any Locofoco who does not consider himself " too
large game," for thepurpose of discussing the ques
tions at issue in this contest; and he pledged him
self to prove that James K. Polk is opposed to a
Protective Tarifl; or any other than a low Revenue
Tairff. Again : that Mr. Clay is in favor of a
Protective Tariff—and in this too, he would take
upon himself the onus probandi, to prove the affir
mative. And again: that a Protective Tariff is
essential to the prosperity of the country. And so
on to the end of the vocabulary.
Mr. B. spoke for the space of about three quar
ters of an hour in the moat convincing strains of

Madisonian of Tuesday of last week, contains a
letter from President Tyler, in which he formally
withdraws from the Presidential Race Course. The
address occupies about four columns of the Madi-
Bunion, and alludes to the Texas Question and one
or two other matters; but will excite very little at
tention. The whole story may be summed up thus:
—Mr. Tyler finding himself without even a frag
ment of a party, was a few days since waited upon
by a committee at New York, who told him the
truth with regard to his prospects; whereupon lie
eagerly seized the opportunity to retire from the
field, and thus avoid an exposure of his weakness
at the struggle which is approaching. He has, in
brief, gone over to Mr. Polk, or to the " third par

THE EXTRA &am:v.—The Madisonian says:
"There has been a report going the rounds of the
newspapers during the last few days, that there is
to be an extra session of Congress called in conse
quence of Mexico having obtained front England a
loan of four millions of dollars. We regarded the
whole as mere gossip put afloat by some of the let
ter writers, with which this city abounds. In re
gard to the reported loan, we were sure that time
sufficient had not elapsed, since the authority was
given by the Mexican Congress to raise the sum of
four millions, for the negotiation to have been made.

a man who "is prowling about the country, dressed
in Quaker garb, with a sanctimonious face, speech
and manners, seeking for prey, and making depre

Zahn Blanchard, Esq.
The time is almost at hand when
the Whigs of this District will be called upon to
put in nomination a candidate for Congress—and
the enquiry now is, who shell he be ? It is well
understood I presume, that John G. Miles, Esq. is
the choice of Huntingdon county, but Mr. Miles
has on all occasions declined being considered a
candidate—and Gen. Irvin, our late worthy and es
teemed Representative, has also declined. In view
of this then, it would seem to me that
should he the man. There is no man in the district
who is as deserving as Mr. B.; there is no man who
has done more for the party than he has—he has
grown grey in defence of those measures a -
ciples, which we as Whigs cherish—h
batting in the Whig party for years, in y,
and in adversity, in sunshine, and in 4,rm. In a
long political life he has never waveregor turned
aside for a moment- no matter how gloomy nor
prospects—howdisheartened and apparently broken
down our forces--he has,like a noble Spartan clung
the closer to our standard. And now, when we
have passed through those seasons of doubt and
despondency—when the light of reason and intelli
gence has discovered the detbrmi:y of our oppo
nents—when succeed seems to be written upon
every wave of public feeling--and when the Whig
Standard is floating in bold and lofty triumph !
shall we throw aside Mr. Blanchard and disregard
his claims—shall wo forget his services and say to
trim—" You have fought long and nobly for us,
you have stood by us when our fortunes were on the
wane, but now when our political sky is bright,
and our prospects cheering, we feel that we
can stand without you." Now fellow Whigs of
the 17th Congressional District, would nut such
treatment be unkind and ungrateful, and would it
not be unworthy of the Whig party? But, lot us
nominate John Blanchard—let us unite heart and
hand, in his election--and success, my word for it,
will be the result.

NORTH CAROLINA, 0. K.
The election returns from North Carolina show
that the revolution is complete in that state—and
that her vote will be cast for Henry Clay by from
five to ten thousand majority. The Whigs have
overcome 10 majority in the Senate; 14 in the
House; and secured besides 32 to 36 on joint bal

apportionment made by the Locos last year! A
