Q Two men in the city of New York, who
,ted for Polk and Dallas, were tried week before
it, convicted of illegal voting and perjury, and
, ntenced to the Penitentiary; one for two years,
Id the other for six months.
By a call of the State Temperance Committee,
e see that a State Temperance Conventiin is to
held in Harrisburg, on Wednesday, the twenty
cond day of January next.

n of sixteen pounds to the ton of ore, is said to
• abundant in the copper mine district of Lake
Taos Onz.—Discoveries of valuable iron ore
we been made in the lower Anthracite region of
ennsylvania, a little North East of Harrisburg.
Nothing has transpired at Washington, since
our last, to excite very general interest. Mr.
Atcheson, of Mo., Senator elected for the unexpired
term of Dr. Linn, and the Senators from New
York, Messrs. Dickenson and Foster, appointed by
the Governor, in the places of Messrs. Tallmadge
and Wright, resigned, appeared in the Senate, and
were sworn in.
In the Senate, Mr. McDuffle, of South Carolina,
submitted a joint resolution to annex Texas to the
United States, or the United Slates to Texas—it is
not certain which. The resolution goes on to recite
the Treaty which was rejected by the Senate, and
declares that upon its being adopted by Texas, it
shall be the fundamental law of the land. This, is
in effect, taking the question out of the treaty ma
king power of the United States,created by the con
stitution, and submitting the question to Texas, and
asking her to say whether she will agree that the
United States Government shall assume the debts
of the " Lone Star," and exercise jurisdiction over
her. Such is the elasticity of our constitution, in
the opinion of Lacofocoism. Mr. Benton also in
troduced a bill to annex Texas, which was referred
to the committee on Foreign Relations. This bill
requires, among other fair and equitable provisions,
the consent of the government of Mexico to
the treaty to be negotiated. In the House, Mr. C.
3. Ingersoll reported a project for the annexation of
The Senate adopted a bill'requiring the Presiden
tial elections to be held on the same day (2nd Tues
day in November) in all the States. It remains to
he seen whether the Locofoco House will adopt this
wholesome law. The bill should, in our opinion,
be so amended as to require the Congressional elm
fions to be held on the same day throughout Ihts
Union. This would, in a measure, preserve the
purity of the ballot-box; but Locofocoism, which
likes to send hordes of voters from city to city to
vote in every ward, would probably oppose such a
law; or if passed, would nullify it, as they did the
single district law in many of the Locofoco States.
The Magazines.
GRAHAM'S MAGAZINE for January 1845, has
been received. It is a most superb number, begin
ning a new volume. The embellishments are rich
and rare. It would be a Christmas or New Year's
gift characterized by good taste, cheapness and
has also come to haul, and is well filled with choice
contributions, and displays beautiful pictorial em
bellishments. This too, would prove an appropri
ate Holyday Present.
The Magazines for is nuary are certainly the best
that ever came up the pike."
.Gasessr" for the present month has not yet
arrived—it . is the only number that has missed
us, and we do not know who is at fault. We dis
like Irving the volume spoiled by the loss. Will
the publisher have the kindness to forward us the
o,—ember number.

Whig Policy.
The city Whig presses as well as
others in the interion of this State, are now buisily
engaged in pointing out the course or policy which
ought to be pursued by the Whigs of the Union.—
Some are for adhering to a strict party organiza
tion—others, for withdrawing the party from the
field of action, and suffering the Latter-day De
mocracy to pursue the even tenor of its way. We
agree in part with the latter—so far, however, as
respects the immediate annexation of Texas, and a
repeal of the Tariff of 1842, we would advise
the whigs in Congress, (and we have just as good
a right to give advice as any other clod-hopper,")
to resist those measures recommended by Presi
dent Tyler, in his late speech during the present
Session, and let Mr. Polk and his friends have
the responsibility of adopting them at the next
In Pennsylvania, during the last canvass, the
friends of Mr. Polk advocated his election on the
grounds that he was more of a Tariff man than
Mr. Clay. The Whigs denied the assertion, and
endeavored to convince the rank and file of the
party, that their leaders were deceiving them. '!Mr.
Polk is elected, and how is the question of veracity
to be settled, if the advice of the Whig press, as
respects the "Policy of the Whigs," is adopted!—
We are aware that individual interest must suffer
by the experiment; it will be for the permanent
interest of the country, to let the Free Trade Doc
trine be introduced and carried out to its greatest
Among other references to the election of a Uni
ted States Senator, in this State, the Telegraph of
Harrisburg, has introduced the name of the present
Governor, D. R. Porter, as a Candidate in rather
an unfavorable point of view. We view this at- 1
tack of the Telegraph, however, as savouring more
of personal hoatlity, than any other grourrd. We
know D. R. Porter—he is a well-tried politician,
and in the exercise of that character, has done things
that have given offence to his opponents, bet, he is
in principle, a Tariff man, and a Pennsylvanian in
feeling, and I would prefer him a thousand times
before a Snowden—a Penniman—or any other
" Barn-burner" in the State. The Whigs ought
to place none of their friends in nomination, "to
the victors belong the spoils"—let the Democracy
of the country nominate their candidates, and the
Whigs can decide among evils, in favor of the least.

The Twenty-fifth Rule.
The vote in the House of Representatives on Mr.
ADAMS ' resolution to rescind the twenty-fifth rule
stood 109 to 80. The resolution was in these
words ,
Resolved, That the Twenty-Fifth standing rule
for conducting the business of the House in the
words following: No petition, memorial, resolu
tion, or other paper praying the abolition of sla
very in the District of Columbia, or any State or
Territory, or the sl me trade between the States or
Territories of the United States in which it now
exists, shall be received by this House, or enter
tained in any way whatever;' be and the same
is hereby rescinded.
The vote was not strictly in accordance with the
territorial distinctions of free and slave-holding
States. Three members from New Hampshire, two
from New York, two from Pennsylvania, two from
Indiana, four from Illinois and three from Ohio, vo
ted against the resolution to rescind. On the other
hand three members from Maryland, ono from N.
Carolina, and one from Kentucky, voted in favor of
the rescinding resolution. The three from Mary
land who voted to rescind the rule are Messrs.
KENNEDY, WET... and Num)s. The two
other members from the South who voted the same
way, are CrarromAie of N. Carolina, and WHITE
of Kentucky.
WI, can see no good reason why the resolution
of Mr. ADAMS should involve a test question on
the subject of abolition. The right of petition was
the real thing at issue. In the Senate of the U.
States there has been no difficulty in respect to ab
olition petitions, and for the simple reason that no
question has been raised there respecting the recep
tion of them. They have been received and laid
upon the table. The same course could be pursued
in the House. Or the petitions might have, for the
occasion, a special reference to a Committee of
which Mr. Adams should be Chairman, so that a
Report from him on the subject might be produced.
The following is an analysis of the vote in the
House of Representatives on Tuesday, by which
the motion of Mr. Adams, to rescind the rule ex
cluding Abolition petitions, was adopted

Mr. Polk's majority over Mr. Cloy, exclusive of
South Carolina, is 31,744. If to this be addded
20,000 as the majority for Mr. Polk in South Car
olina, whose vote is not included in the above, the
Legislature of that State choosing her electors, Mr.
Polk's majority over Mr. Clay is 51,744.
The Abolition vote, as stated above, is 57,754,
Add to this, 2,500, the probable vote for Mr. Bir
ney in Illinois, and the total Abolition vote is 60,-
254. The Abolition vote, therefore exceeds Mr .
Polk's majority over Mr. Clay by 8,510 votes; and
Mr. Polk has consequently been elected President
of the United States by a minority of the popular
Harrison's majority in 1840 was 145,900, leav
ing out of the count S. Carolina. Inzluding it,
his majority was probably, in round numbers,
Van Duren's majority in 1836 over Harrison
was 25,876. Deduct from this the probable vote
for C oth n, and Van B uran's majority was
between 10,000 and 15,000.
The State of Massachusetts appointed agents to
reside at Charleston, S. C., and at New Orleans, to
protect the rights of "free persons of color," citi
zens of Massachusetts, who may happen to go into
those States. The Hon. SAMVEL HOAR, a gentle
man of high standing, was the agent sent to
Charleston. The Legislature of South Carolina
have passed resolutions instructing the Governorto
EXPEL Mr. Hoar, immediately from the borders
of the State. There was but one vote against them
in the House; and when sent to the Senate, prompt
ly concurred in. Such high-handed and insulting
conduct is disgraceful, and presents the chivalry of
S. Carolina in a tattered and defiled uliform4

the case of Polly Bodine, charged with the murder
of Mrs. Houseman. The Sheriff has ransacked the

minds as to her guilt or innocence. It is a singular

The Pennsylvania I'ELZIGRAPEC .
The People of Pennsylvagia have a deep inter
est in the proceedings of the Legislature and will
feel anxious to see the policy pursued and measures
recommended by the new administration which
takes the reins et Government in January next.—
The Whigs are in a minority, but representing a
large majority of the intelligence and taxpaying in
terests of the country, they will hold a srrongclieck
upon the movements of radical Locofocoism and
party zeal. We presume that the Whigs of Penn
sylvan;a will feel a strong desire to scan the pro
ceedings of the Legislature; and we intend giving
them an opportunity to do so, through the medium
of the Telegraph. For many years it has been ad
mitted by all parties, to contain the most faithful and
impartial reports of Legislative proceedings; and
we pledge ourself that in this respect it shall fully
maintain its reputation, besides giving Congres
sional Proceedings and the General News of the
day. In doing so our expenses will be heavy and
we confidentially look to the Whigs of the State to
cheer us with a liberal support.
The Telegraph will be published semi-weekly
during the session, on a double super-royal sheet at
$2. Six copies of the paper will be sent upon the
receipt of $lO in advance.
Money may be transmitted by mail, and Post
Masters are authorized to frank letters containing
money for newspapers.
NOTICE is hereby given to all persons
concerned, that the following named per
sons have settled their accounts in the Re
gister's Office at Huntingdon, and that the
