ANOTHER CANDIDATE.—The New York
Sun is out for Gen. WORTH as the next
candidate for President.
The Harrisburg Telegraph says :--
" We caution the V% higs throughout the
State to be on their guard against reports,
circulars and hand bills, issued from the
Locofoco press, retailing all manner of
base and unscrupulous falsehoods against
the Whig candidates for Governor and
Canal Commissioner. We are already
apprized of a splendid edition of Roor
back's, now in process of concoction,
with which the State is to be flooded du

present Gubernatorial canvass. They
are to be printed in both German and
English, and to be secretly distributed
by paid agents. To the getters up we
say, "cease vipers, you bite a file."
The WASHINGTON UNION grows more
desperate as the voice of the people is
heard declaring against the Administra
tion. It last speaks of a coalition of
" Whig Leaders and Mexican Chiefs."
Bah!—the only coalition that the peo
ple believe in, is the admission of SANTA
ANNA through our blockading squadron
by Mr. POLK, and the effort to obtain
three millions to bribe other Mexican
leaders to prove traitors to their coun
try. There is a coalition however to
which we beg the Union to turn its at
tention ;it is of " hig Leaders and
Jimerican Chiefs"—the People. North
Carolina, Tennessee and Indiana are
members of that coalition.
Gov. SWINK UPON THE STUMP.--We
see it announced that Gov. Shank and
Morris Longstreth will be present and
address a meeting of the Locofocos of

we believe is the first instance of a Gov
ernor of Pennsylvania taking the stump
in advocacy of his re-election ; and it
shows most clearly that a desperate ne

FROM PuEaLa.—The Washington Union
says—" A letter has been received in
Washington, from an officer of the army,
as late as the 29th and 30th of July.—
It states that Gen. Scott would movo
upon the capitol as soon as Gen. Pierce
arrived with his reinforcements—about
the 2d or 3d of August. Mr. Trist
had been quite ill, but was then conva
lescent. We are happy to hear that
Gen. Scott had waited upon him during
his indisposition, to confer with him
about the public concerns."
Or Mr. Polk a little more than a year
ago, was furious because Mexico would
not receive an ambassador from the
United States. She was willing to re
ceive a commissioner, but he swore that
she must take an ambassador or nothing.
Since then however he has found his
war so troublesome that he has sent to
her Senor Atocha and Mr. Trist, who
are not only ambassadors but less even
than commissioners. He is fast "climb
ing downwards" in his pretensions.—

lishes the report of the committee on
Foreign Relations of the Mexican Con
dress,to which had been referred Mr. Bu

The document is full of importance as
expressive of the feelings of the Mexi
cans. The report is expressive of a de
termination on the part of the Mexicans
to curry on the war to the death.
We have a few day's later news from
Mexico, which we take from the Tele
graphic despatches of the Philadelphia
Ledger of Saturday last :
_ RICIIMOND, Aug. 200817.
" New Orleans papers of the 134 h,
publish some other important Mexican
documents. Two circulars dated July
7th and 17th, from Pacheco, the new
Mexican Minister, contain what is be
lieved to be the best exponent of Santa
Anna's present views. The first is filled
with a panegyric of the renowned war
rior, whose whole life has been one of
glory, and whose name is indissolubly
associated with the history of the war.
It denies that he has any understand

says : " We yesterday saw a very well

FY. Gen. Irvin's donation of fifty
barrels of flour to the starving poor of
Ireland, exhibits such a different trait
of character from that of his Locofoco
opponents, that it seems to trouble the
Locofoco editors worse than the night
mare. Like the bawd who sneers at
virtue, they appear unable to appreciate
deeds of philanthropy, and therefore
always attribute the worst motives.—
They may be gratified to think that they
accomplish the fiendish desire of dig,
ging up the fountains of benevolence,
by chilling the emotions of love and es-
teem that usually attend their outpour
ings. But they will find at last, that
the depravity they boast of will find
few proselytes amongst a moral and in
telligent people. Those who have nut
turned a deaf ear to, but alleviated the
distresses of their fellow-man, will meet
their reward.--Pa. Telegraph.
DEATH BY LIGIITNING.—We regret to
learn that two children of Samuel Hoo
ver, in West Salem, were killed by light
ning on Saturday last. They were out
in the garden, when a storm coming
suddenly on, they took shelter under an
apple tree, which was struck by light
ning and both children killed instantly.
The elder was a boy about ten years old.
