The Presidency in 1848,
A number of Whig paper; have raised the name
of Gen. Scott as a candidate for the Presidency in
1848. We consider this step altogether premature.
The Locofocoa and their foreign allies have decided
in favor of a Southern dynasty which will domineer
over this country for four long years, and before the
expiration of that term there may be many political
" ups and downs," and the Government will be sc
prostrated that it will require the "best doctor" to
restore it. Better wait awhile for th 3 "sober second
thought" of the people, which according to Mr.
Van Buren, "is seldom wrong, and always effi
oj. At a late Locofoco rejoicing in Zanesville,
Ohio, Mr. J. Russell, of that place, was killed by
the premature diseharg of a cannon. His faray
is left in a very needy condition.
Ti!he way in which tho :Locos car
Further evidences of fraud and perjury at the
late eleection are daiiy coming to light. Even in
this county, where we had some little confidence in
the purity of the ballot box, we hear of fraudulent
and double voting.
In this district, cosmopolites and wandering
Jews voted on their mere AFFIRMATION that
they had paid a State or county tax somewhere in
Pennsylvania within two years, and considered this
borough their place of residence, although it was
known that they were pedlars who have no per
manent residence in the county—pay no taxes—
and bear none of the responsibilities of citizens.
A certain Doctor who "kills or cures" by steam
also voted by steam at the Presidential election.
He voted in Snyder township in the morning, then
rode to Antes and voted there in the evening. The
offender is a sober, cool, calculating fellow, and no
thing but deliberate villany prompted him to the
act. Legal proceedings have been instituted against
him, and nothing but an Executive pardon can save
him from justice.
In Antes township Polk tickets wore deceitfully
folded, two together, and voted. Three more tick
ets were in the box than names on the list of voters.
All these tickets wore counted, contrary to law.
The deceitfully doubled tickets should have been
thrown out, which would have made a difference of
aix against Polk.
And wo are informed that in Woodberry town
ship an unnaturalized foreigner voted. He got
his vote Into the box by swearing that he was natu
ralized in the court of this county. Since the elec
tion, search has born made and no record of his
naturalization can be found. This scoundrel will
also be prosecuted.
Deception, fraud, and subornation of perjury arc
characteristics of the leaders of the Locoforo party.
These hypocritical preachers of morality, honesty,
&c., put on long and sanctimonious faces before
elections, and caution the people against fraud, de
ception, and every species of rascality, and then
practice the same themselves.
Knowing that the Locofocos practice such bare
faced frauds in a Whig county like Huntingdon,
what may we expect from them in their own strong
holds, where they have entire and unmolested con
trol over the ballot-boxes.
"By the E—!" said the old Lion of the
Hermitace, ' , the peoplo NKOW HIM too well,"
when he li:ard that Jemmy O'Polk was defeated in
Yes the people cf Tennessee know Mr. Polk, and

As Jimmy Polk of Tennessee
The Tory Press.
" The triumph of the Loctribeo party in the late
contest, has served to developo the hidden and se
cret contempt, entertained by that party, of the
people. Previous to the election the tory press
wreathed its face in smiles, and employed honied
phrases to the sovereign people, but no sooner does
fraud and foreign influence decide in favor of the
GRAND SON OF A TORY, than the real char
acter of these presses is exposed, and that same
people whom they attempted to flatter and deceive,
are denominated as the low, vulgar, and ignorant.
"The Globe of last week is a beautiful specimen
of Tory malignity and contempt of the people;
anti is also a fair specimen of that paper's regard
for truth. Read the following extract from its
leading editorial article:
"But let us cee what counties * * * gave to
Mr. Clay then. thundering majorities ? Lancaster,
Lebanon, Dauphin, Union and Somerset, each gave
him a large majority—in all about nOOO. • • •
We have heard that in a majority of the townships
in each of these counties the people have decided
against the common school system. And we be
lieve it is univcreally conceded that the people in
these counties aro cs far back in the woods and
snore so than any ether five counties in the State,
and yet the Journal has the impudence to prate
. about intelligence, and indulge in contemptible
slang about benighted regions—Tulp:hockeno and
so on.
Thus wrote Lewis G. Mytingcr's hireling editor
in the last Glebe. Lewis never writes, but he
prints any thing that designing knaves indite for
him, no matter whether it be a libel upon a friend,
a " Roorback forgery," or an " Iron-teethed Rake,"
alias the " Independent Whig." Hence the slan
der upon the noble German counties cf Lancaster,
Lebanon, Dauphin, Union and Somerset.
The Globe hireling says—" we have heard that a
majority of the townships in each of these counties
have decided against the common school system;
and herein he pays a left handed compliment to his
friends in "Democratic Barree" township, in tLis
county. Having received sundry hard wraps over
the knuckles lately for Ys deviation from the truth,
the Globe begins to lie mit cautiously. It says
WE have HEARD," &c. And pray, sir, who told
you all this " moimshine ?" Examine the reports
of the Supenntendent of the Common Schools,and l
you will hear and see a very different story. And
in vindication of the character of those counties for .
intelligence we refer the Globe to the following ta
ble, compiled from the "Compendium of the sixth
Census" taken in 1840, showing the population of
the fivo counties mentioned, together with the num
ber of schools in them, and tho number of white
persons over 20 years of age who cannot read and

The a':o• - c counties we havo selected or. account
of the it col :guity to the Globe's live counties.—
There are other counties "as far back in the woods"
as these, and give larger majorities for the GRAND
SON OF A TORY, but these will suffice for our
purpose. The reader may form his own conclu
sion ; and the Globe demagogues may work these
facts into any shape they think proper.
With the aid of the 130 schools in our native
county—York—the moral darkness which hangs
about the " back" townships may soon be dispelled.
In the days of "Old Hackery" there was not a
Whig in Codorus township—in 1840 Gen. Harri
son received but 2 or 3, and this year Clay has
about a dozen votes there. And we see the" school
master is abroad" in Pike county too—he will be
death to Locofocoism. The noble Whig who
stands "solitary and alone" in Lehman township,
will soon have others to share his eurd. Let him
"cry aloud and spare not," for his is a righteous
cause. Ho must be a men of the sternest virtue
as well as of intelligence, else he would long since
have been corrupted by the spoils party.
New Youx.—Silas Wright, the Locofoco can
didate, has been elected Governor by a majority of
about 10,000 over Mr. Fillmore, his distinguished
opponent. As to the the Congressmen, the Whigs
have elected 9 members, (a Whig gain of 4,) the
Native Americans 4, and the Locofocos 21, embra
cing all the Districts iu the State. Mr. Polk's plu
rality over Mr. Clay, is about 5,000.
DEATH IN THE PELPIT.-The Rev. Wilson, a
Baptist minister in Georgia, fell dead in the pulpit
on the fifth Sabbath in June last, after preaching
from these words: "Verily, verily, I say unto you,
the hour is coining, and now is, when the dead shall
hear the voice of the Son of God, and they that hear
shall live."
Beans AND HARD WINTER.—Tho Sangamm
Illinois, Journal states that Bears aro coming down
into the North parts of Illinois from Wisconsin,
and that several have been killed in Winnebago
county. This movement of Bears, south, it is
said, be tokens of coming hard winter.
New Hampshire at their recent election, rejected a
proposition submitted to them to am Nal their State
constitution so as to abolish capitol punishment.--
They also at the same time rejected propositions to
a mend the constitution in relation to the religious
and property qualification teats.
"1411 tho Decency and all the Intel-
This is the heading of an article in the last Hol
lidaysburg Standard, in reply to ours . relative
to the Pennsylvania election. Wo.seem to have
given sundry Tory presses considerable trouble.—
" Now, be airy, darlints—and if you can't be aisy,
be as aisy as you can." We are at all times ready
to defend our positions, and shall never shrink from
doing so, no matter how demagogues may pervert
our language.
After writing the sheerest nonsense about a the
petty tyrants at certain of our Iron Works"--
those in the Democratic State of Berko county,
perhaps, or those in the black "Star of the North,"
Columbia county, Mr. John Dougherty, the sapient
editor of the Standard proceeds as follows:
"It was the Agricultural counties of New York
that gave the vote of the Dmpire State to James K.
Pold and George •M. Dallas. It was the Armen
of Berke, Westmoreland, and other agricultural
counties, that decided the recent elections in Penn
sylvania ; and it was the farmers of Missouri, Illi
nois, Indiana, Michigan, Virtiinia, &c. &c., that
placed the seal of condemnation en the candidate
of thy ilfenopoEsto. It is Vase whom the editor of
the Journal supposes cannot read or write and who
live in bcniglacrirtgions. _ . .
Having riles sho;tri that the farmers of the Union
aro the clam of men who decided against the mea
sures of the Federalists and monopoliste, we may
perhaps by excused if we hurl back the foul impli
cation of ignorance upon our opponents ; we would
point them to theiestrong holds of Whiggery, Ken
tucky and North Cardlina—two States that contain
a la:ger nr.rober of voters who. can neither read or
write then any °lke?. two Stoles in the Union.
Mut it is absurd and ridiculous in the extreme
to Akvpose that Democracy is incompatible with
leat fling and intelligence. We have shown, that
the more virtuous portion of this country, the agri
culturalists, are on our side, and will now point to
the 8.77,0/r.,s,l'o,ts, ilistona7:l, and Novelists, of
this Republic. 0!)3C,3 the school to which they
belong—they are, without t exception, Democrats;
witness Washington Irvine, N. P. Willis, Joseph
C. Neal, Paulding, Bryant, Cooper,Banoraft, and a
host of others who form the bright galaxy of Amer
can litensture. Yet these are the men whom our
WE;; neighbors deem ignorant! And why? be
cause three men advocate the elevation of the MOSSCS,
and the giving to the many the povir which tha
few had wrested from them. But thrre is anether
portion of our citizens who have come in far more
than n full shore of Federal censure. We allude
to the sturdy and warmhearted Irish, who, having
taste:l 4 th° Litter fruits that flow from a property
government at home, have attached themselves to
the Democratic party and who are always found
battling on the sale of the people. These have
been selected as the peculiar objects of Federal
vengeance, and already all the artillery of the Uni
versal Whig party has opened upon their devoted

feel disposed to leave him, hoping that ho will in
form us whether he calls the lordly nabobs and plan

he applies that honorable appellation to their 81aves.
These farmers of the South and West, who veto
once for themselves and :4ree times for every fit's
slaves they own, aro the polite fellows who " placed
the seal of condemnation on the candidate of the
Monepofists." So says John Dougherty, and it is
truth, but not the whole truth—for the voters of
the North and East helped therm We don't like
to see these Tory editors ehift the responsibility so
soon after the election. The North and East must
bear their part of the sit•. and the disgrice.
But let us examine another of Mr. Dougherty's
inventions: "Kentucky and North Carolina,"
says he, "contain a larger number of voters who
can neither read nor write than any other two
states in the Union." Now let us see what the

Dore "Executive Clemency."
_ _
On Wednc, day of week before last a parchment
or paper was presented in the Court of Quarter
Sessions of this county, with the great seal of the
Commonwealth, and the signature of the Governor
attached, in the words following:
fel In the name and by the authority
.244 OF THE
Governor of the said Commonwealth. -
Wherea9, at a Court of Quarter Sessions of
the Peace, held in and for the county of Hunting
don, on the tenth'ilay of April, one thousand eight
hundred and forty-four, James Jones, John Jones,
James Evans Jones, ncs Thompson, Washing
ton Jaelam Briggs, and John Briggs, Jr., were
Indicted for a conspiracy and malicious mischief,
and found guilty on the first, second and third counts
in said Indictment, and were thereupon sentenced
by the Court to pay a fine of ten dollars each and
the costs of prosecution, and stand committed, &e.
And whereto, :t has been represented to me that
the raid defendants aro lit and proper persons for
the exercise of the Executive Clemency.
Ido therefcr,, in consideration of the premises,
hereby remit the fines of ten dollars each imposed
upon the said defendants by the sentence of the
Court as aforesaid, and the same are hereby fully
remitted accordingly.
Given under my hand and the GREAT SEAL
of the State, at Harrisburg,this fourteenth day
of September, in the year of our Lord, ono
thousand eight hundred and forty-four, and of
the Commonwealth, the sixty-ninth.
By the Governor:
Secretary of the Comm. mean,
The above was filed among the records of the
county, as a "perpetual memorial;" and in order
to make the mercifulness of our Governor the bet
ter known wo have deemed it proper to publish this
further evidence thereof. We Lava before furnish.
niched our readers with specimens cf pardons—
"pre:e'er:o" and ;;rope.', and with a supersedcas
.which the Supreme Court said no supereedoas
at all: mid vie now give this specimen of a remis
sion erforgieeaess.
We wil! add that these "fit and proper persons
for the exercise of the Executive Clemency" were
indicted for a ccnspiracj and malicious mischief—
s/tittle/big the School D7rector,3 of Tell town,hip
in the performance of ih:Er olficialduties—nunn-
Iwo acrv, TOO SC/I.L HOUSE, &c. Some people
prefer moral and political darkness rather than light
and knowledge, end it so happens that those people
aro always the " fit and proper persons for the ex
ercise of the Executive clemency." In this ease
the Pardon is of no other earthly use or effect thin
to clear these "fit and proper percent" front the
fines imposed upcn them by the Court.
The Pardon was given on the 14th September,
shortly before the election.
Since the elections in Pennsylvania we have seen
in a number of our Locofeco exchange paiers,
long article credited to the "Pittsburg Weekly,'
against the Distribution of the Proceeds of tho
soles of the Public Lands and against the Protec
tive Tariff. We make the following extracts:
" Now as a measure of mere finance, this propo
sition to distribute tho proceeds of the public lands,
is most ridiculous."
" A protective tariff is laid to prevent the impor
tation of fomign goods, Yet it is by the very duties
on these goods, whose importation is designated to
be prevented by a protective Una that the public
treasury is to be supplied with funds after exhaust
ing itself by the distribution of the land proceeds.
This is arrant nonsense. The proposition on its
face is to give away the resources of the Govern
ment and still replenish the Government by the du
ties on imports, and at the same time pass a law to
prevent these very importations,"
The reasoning in the above extract is most falla
cious, for it is an indisputable fact that under the pres
ent Protective Tann; passed by the Whig Congress'
of 1842, the Treasury has a large surplus revenue.—
The question is, shall the Tariff be reduced, or
shall the surplus, or the proceeds of the public
lands, be distributed? But our object in making
the above extracts was, to show how the Locofocos
have MIN.. Pennsylvania out of her Electoral
votes. Before the election the cry was, "hurrah
for Polk, Drillas, and the Democratic Tariff of 1842."
Now, since the election is over and Pennsylvania
secured, this measure is denounced as "arrant non
sense." Lind' is the dishonesty of Locofocoisin.
