Resolved, That we have the moat entire confi-
dence in the political principles of Generals Scott
and Taylor, and that we, as Whige, are prepared
to stand fast by either of them in the event of the
Whig party selecting one of them to preside over
the affairs of this country.
Resolved, That the thanks and gratitude of the
American people are due to Gene. Scott and Taylor
for their diettnguiehed and extraordinary services
in the field, and that we, ae Whigs, recognize in
them qualities that would adorn the chief Magic•
tracy of thie Union.
Resolved, That we denounce and abhor the base
attempt on the part of the Administration to tar
nish and destroy the hard earned fame of the Hero
of Lunde. Lane, and the laurel covered veteran of
Resolved, That we regard the present. effected
attachment to, and love for Gen. Taylor, by the
lecdoeoe, as of a poles with their tegard for the

Resolved, That having been long and intimately
acquainted with Gen. Jaws, we take pleasure a.
well as pri le, in commending him to the people of
Pennsylvania sea man eminently qualified for the

Resolved, rhat we, the immediate neighbors and
friends of Gen. Irvin feel it to he our duty to rebuke
'the shameless attempts to tarnish hie fair fame by
'his unprincipled revilers; (and we are proud to
say that among hie opponents there are some noble
' exceptions) and we tell them that their folly is
vain, for Gen. Irvin, as he is, will be known by the
' people, and when known, they will say that a men
of his sterling worth shall never be injured by men
whose "lips seem faint with haste to propagate the
lie their souls had framed."
Resolved, That as President Polk took occasion
to tell the people in his message " what was yet
so be seen" as the result of the "pass" he granted
to Santa Anna, we now take occasion to tell him,
and his party that it has already been seen that
hundreds and thousands of our patriotic sone now

of this county especially, to claim the name of Dein
octet, and gine the Whigs the name of Federalist,
'is peculiarly ridiculous, when we see among us the
cone, and their grey haired sires, who for fifty years
'have over done battle in the ranks of Democracy;
;while with our present opponents we see a cloud of
A./Unease., who testify that the Loco Foco party,

Raoturd, That our little army in Mexico de
carves the gratitude of every American for their
gallant and courageous bearing in the many fierce
ly fought field.; and they need also our commiser

hands of rho National Administration.
Resolved, That we believe that the method of
putting an end to the war, as suggested by General
Scott, but no vilely ridiculed, by Polk and Marcy,
an being too slow, bee been proven to be the only
one ; and while they charged Scott with inefficien
cy, in saying that 50,000 soldiers ought to have been
in Mexico, by last September, they have added
another year to his time and the 50,000 soldiers are
not yet there, and the "war goes on."
Resolved, That the hypocritical professions of
love for a protective Tara, manifested by the
friends of J. K. Polk, /Mould prove to the people
that with that party tt profession is not principle."
