ble paper has recently been enlarged and other
wise improved. It is now the largest weekly
published in the interior. If the Whig of

we suppose they do, the Intelligcncer cannot
fail having a very liberal support. Every Conj•

SPIRIT OF THE Locofoco mem
bower the House who voted against individual
liability, are stigmatized by the Carlisle Vol
unteer, as "faithless, venal, corrupt, and self
damned traitors !" Among the gentlemen thus
stigmatized, is Mr. FRICK, of Northumberland,
a gentleman of intelligence and known integ
rity. And we will venture to predict that not
withstanding the denunciations of such papers
as the Volunteer and Pennsylvanian, Mr. Frick
an be re-nominated and re-elected by the
county of Northumberland, it he desires it.—
Mr. F. is a Locofoco, but it is a libel on his
character ; to insinuate that he has been actua
ted in his votes by venal and corrupt motives.
Collector of Philadelphia.
We understand that lion. A. RAMSEY of Har
risburg, will in all probability, be appointed
Collector of the Port of Philadelphia. We
hope this may prove to be correct. The appoint
ment of Mr. R. would give universal satisfac
tion to the Whigs of the interior. He is known
to be deserving, honest and competent. As
Philadelphia has been pretty liberally provided
for both by the State and National Administra-
tions, it is hoped the claims and wishes of the
country, in the person of Mr. Ramsey, will not
be overlooked.
The Reason Why.
A leading Locofoco member of the House of
Representatives, says the Pa. Intelligencer, has
givenas a reason for his opposition to Mr. BALL'S
project for the completion of the North Branch
Canal, and the issue of small notes by the
Banks, that it will really be a beneficial meas
ure, and bring the state stocks up to par; and
that in proportion as it will work thus beneficial
ly for the interests of the state and the people,
will operate disastrously to the interests of the
Democratic party !—and for this reason it was
to be deprecated. Truly, this gentleman is
actuated by a worthy and patriotic motive !
When will the people of Pennsylvania send
representatives to Harrisburg who can look

Emancipation, and suggests the plan of gradual

Destructive Flood—linintence Loss
of Property.
CitICAW, March I:l 7 —S o'clock P. M,
We have been visited by a terrible food,
which has destroyed an immense amount of
property. The damage occasioned to our com
merce alone is estimated at over $lOO,OOO.
The brig St. Louis has been sunk, and is an en
tire loss ' • the schrs. Norton and Diamond were
stove in by the brig Europe coming in collision
with them, cawing them to sink. They were
both loaded with salt.
The schr. IVhirlwind was also stove in and
The brigs Ashland and G,n. Worth and echr
11. Hagar and others were badly damaged.
The Gen. Wnrner was also stink.
It is impossible at the present time, to ascer
tain the correct amount of the damage sustain
ed by Propellers, vessels and steamboats,
which are all jammed into one another, some
even being forced up on the top of others. The
whole harbor is a scencc of the utmost confu
sion. The water is still rising, and great fears
are entertained that the destruction will will be
increased. All the canal boats, with the ex
ception of one or two, are entirely destroyed or
carried away into the lake. Several vessels
have gone out side of the harbor, and are now
anchored in the lake. One or two lives have
been lost by the falling of spars on board of
vessels in the harbor.
