It appears that iu noticing, in our last, a com
munication in the Hollidaysburg Standard,
charging the Pennsylvania Railroad Company
with giving circulation ..o the "all sorts of I
stuff called money," front other States, we
did injustice to the disbursing agents df said ,

been, our settled Mirpose never knowingly to
do do injustice to individuals or companies, we
feel bound to Make the amend., honor a ble.
It will be recollected that we intimated that
the disbursing agents of the Railroad Company
bought up depreciated paper of other States,
with which they paid the estimates of the con
tractors. This we firmly at the time believed
to be trdo. Thd last Hollidaysburg Standard,
however, contains a card signed by the contrac
tors themselves, flatly denying that such is the
feet. These contractors also say that they
have never been "pressed to take any Other
kind of money than such as was entirely satis
factory to them." We have also been inform
ed by gentlemen of veracity, who were fre
quently present when the estimates were paid
in this place, that the agent always asked the
contractors what kind of money they would pre
fer.—And we have seen a letter from one of
the firm of Belt & McDowell, whose veracity
we have no reason to doubt, denying most solemn
ly the truth of our intimations. We therefore
withdraw all ste have said, going td place the

The Whigs and the Tariff.
The Uneasier Examiner says that some Of
the anti-tariff papers would throw out the idea
that the Whigs in Congress, or the administra
tion, wish to restore the tariff of 1812, in its
very words, or that they wish to establish a
system of high prohibitory duties. Neither of
These positions is true. The Tariff of 1812 was
very good tariff in its slay, and it answered
Nell the then necessities of the country in re
storing credit, confident° and Character to all
our business interests ; but What is ieeen or
l eieht years old in this country, is as old as half
a century in other countries ; and hence, what
was right in 1842, may need very essential al
terations in 1950. The Whigs are comMitted
to no precedent Tariff LAW. They live and
learn, improve and progtess. They can now
make a much better Tariff than they made in
1812, though that was then deemed so necessa
ry by many even of the iDertmeracY,' that they
voted for it—among them James finchanan and
the late Site. Wright.
Nor are the Whigs a prohibitory party. It
is often very convenient so to represent them,
but it is not the less untrue. The Whig prin
ciple is, sufficient revenue to meet the wants of
the Government—no more—with discrimination
in raising this revenue for the adequate protec
tion of home labor and home industry. We de-
main! no protection for mere protection's sake ;
that is, we never ask one portion of the corn
munity Vibe taxed in order toilet'', along anoth
er ; but we do say, that where thirty millions
of revenue are to be collected, duties should be
levied so as to favor such articles of American
production as would be destroyed by the cheap
er and erten p an pzr labor of Europe and Asia.
The people have got to pay so much money to
support the Government. Our idea is, that the
I tax should be laid as much as possible to pro
tect and exalt our own commerce, agriculture
and manufactures. Are we not right?
Well this, then, is all the Whigs in the com
ing Congress, or of the A&ninistrafiOn, as we
Understand them, intend to do or wish to do.—
They say universal, horizontal, eternal ad valet
rrms are as reasonable as the bed of Procrustus,
which stretched out short men and chopped off
long ones, to make all equal—and no more rea
sonable. They stand ready to prove, and in
the next Congress they will prove, by over
whelming testimony, that they are susceptible
of all sorts of frauds. Besides, they are utterly
unknown in any other commercial country. They
stand ready to prove, too, and will prove, that

The Susquehanna Bank.
We commend the following which we clip
rrom the Lancaster Examiner, to the attehtion
of the Locofoco editors in this region, who have
been attempting to make political capaal out of
the failure of this hank. We suffer to the
amount of $5 by this rascaify tacoriwn
The Susquehanna Register says that I'. P.
St. John, the late Cashier of the Susquehanna
Bank, as well as both the fornier Cashiers, are
Locofocos. Ansel St. John, the New York bro
ker, who divned the Bank is also a Locofoco.
"T. P. St. John, the cashier, was in jail on a
0,61 process, and preparations had been made
for his arrest on a criminal charge, but on Sun
day evening, the 11th inst., he was bailed oat
by Messrs Hcartley, Grow, Johnston andothers,
and made his escape out of the State. The Reg
ister says these gentlemen are all prominent
LOcofocos- , —from which it appears that the Sus
quehanna Bank, like the Lehigh County con
cern, is "Democratic" from beginning to end.
"We should not notice these facts, were it
not that many of the Locofoco papers are en
deavoring to make capital for their tarty by im
plicating the Whigs in some manner with the
failure of this bank. We therefdre consider ii
due to truth to say, that the bank was chartered
by a locofoco Legislature and has always been
exclusiVely tinder ldcofoco control. These
facts cannot be denied."

which he has been charged before the United
States District Court at Pittsburgh, of robbing
Notwithstanding Mr. Bossier is a brother ed
itor, the Locofoco press has for Months been

ring the public that he was guilty. But unfor
tunately for these jackalls of the press, who
were thus gloating over the supposed downfall
of a member of their own fraternity, Mr. Boss
ler has been acquitted by a jury of his country.
We rejoice at this. Not because Mr. B. is a
Whig,:but because a heretofore worthy mem
ber of our profession has been proven to be
worthy still. And we cannot but shudder at
the unenviable tnotive which prompted a por

The Tariff Quinton in New Jersey.
A tariff convention, soithout diAtinction al
party, was recently held in New Jeriey, of
which a resolution was adopted containing
these words ~ The tariff of 1816 has now had
a fair trial, and While some of its features are
unobjectionable, its operation has been very in
jurious to all the great manufacturing infer..
eSts of the State ; and the agricultural classes,
in the absence of European famine, have found
the uncertain foreign demand a most meager
substitute for the neatly cash market at home.'
This is not a very flattering account of the tar
iff of 1846 from the "without distinction of
party" convention in our Sister State, add'
either the" Democrats" of that State, or the
locofocos of this State, have most wofully mis
represented it. We should like to know which

All this (adds the Atlas) We have accom
plished without effort. Had the two opposition
parties combined in all the counties, the Whig
candidate for Governor would have been trium
phantly elected by the people. As it is he lacks
only °bout 1200 votes of having a clear major
ity over both the opposing candidates. This
will content us for the present. The Adminis
tration of Gen. Taylor has been nobly sustained.
The State Administration of Goi. .13figg's has
been nobly sustained ; and so long tier they pur
sue the high minded, honest, liberal, and patri

It will be very generally gratifying to know
that the Postmaster General intends to recom
mend a reduction of postage, and the establish
ment of a uniform rats of live cents. This fact
is stated in a letter from Washington to the
Philadelphia North American, the writer of
which gees on to remark:
This measure of reform has long been needed
' and can now be adcpted, if the majorities in
Congress arc disposed to second the popular and
i3its suggestions or Me. Cullamet. In
deed, if his views could be fully carried out,
predicated as they are upon a careful examina
tion of the whole system, three cents would be
the rate fixed by law. And this reduction is en
tirely practicable, if Congress will relieve pri
vate correspondence from the enormous and un
just tax which is now imposed upon it, for the
transportation of the Cortes poudence and docu
mentary matter of the departments and mem
bers of Congress. It may be asked with pro
priety, why should this imposition be levied
upon one branch of the public service more
than another? Why should the expenses of
Custom Houses, Land Offices, &c., be liquida
ted from the general Treasury, and the Post
Office which of all others, is entitled to pecuni
ary exemption, from the nature of its functions,
be made to bear these onerous burthens ? The
policy of the age is in favor of the diffusion of
knowledge in the cheapest and Most expeditious
manner, and the member of Congress who op- .
poses himself to this policy, will be visited
with file indigitittion which followed the passage
of the old dOmpensation bill.

would remain a few days before going to

naded in New York, and being called out from
the private residence of thb friend with whom
he was stopping, addressed the vast crowd as
sembled in the street, as follows :
Gentlemen, I am come here as a peace maker.
I wish I had the authority of a commission in

and to make you observe law and circler. (laugh

it better than in coming to New York, to ex
change feelings of satisfaction with those to
whom lam indebted for so many marks of
attachment in days gone by—to brighten those
ancient friendships founded upon principles
cherished by us in common. (Great cheering.)
Although I camiot expect to be long in the
councils of my country, you will find me at the
opening of the ilession where I have always
been.— (Great cheering.) I have crossed the
mountains earlier this fall than was neessary.
I have done this in order that I might escape
the severity of a winter passage. lam now
on my way to my post of duty (cheers,) with
no personal ambition to gratify—no selfish ob
ject to accomplish—no desire for honors except
those showered upon me by my countrymen.
When I go there I shall find Congress in the
most extraordidary position in which it was
ever found before---‘a state of perfect equilihri-,
um. Out'of it, perhaps, may result lessons of
justice, modem ation, and patriotism.-- , -(Cheers.)
For my own part I go there to discharge in the
best manner I can,
the sacred duties, that de
volve upon me. Ihave no enmities to gratify.
I will devote the energies or my life to the hon
or, the glory, and the interests of my country.
(ImmAnon ^ 1, .. 0 ".:, for some immites.) I will
go for the purpose, as far as my humble talents
can contribute to it—for the purrose of promo

without which there is no security for com
merce, or all the blessings we enjoy in this

They . unay tell you that liberty id the ab

withdut Union, I repeat it, there is no security
for peace - , for commerce, for practical liberty
itself. I, therefore, go to attend to that im
portant object which lies above all and beyond
all other interests in this land of ours. (Hear,

Speech on Slavery in California—The
Importance of the Union, &c.
Hon. Henry Clay arrived in this city

Mr. Clay addressed the people to day
from Barnum's Hotel.
He said that lie always felt at home
when in Maryland, the State being the
birth-place of his better half. He felt,
afraid that the importance of his return
to the public councils of the dountry
was overrated by his friends. He still
felt his old devotion to the service of the
public, but, at the same time, he felt the
weight of time upon him which unfits
him for the active service of his earlier
He then alluded to the slavery ques
tion, and said there was unnecessary ag
itation upon this subject. 7'he evil could
never exist in California and New Alex
ice. The cool climate, the business of
the country, the habits and pursuits of
the people forbid it.
He then spoke of the importance of
the Union, and said that, contrasted
with it, the slavery question sunk into
nothing. - Under all cricumatances, he
would stand by the Union.
He considered that no one question
could be of sufficient importance to
cause a dissolution, and let the storm
come from what quarter it may, he
should defend the Union, right or wrong.
If it should be dissolved, our country
would require no historian. Her history
would be written from that of Greece.
Men would arise and play the part of
Philip and Alexander. There would be
foreign alliances, and foreign and domes
tic wars, until every trace of liberty be
lost in this part of the world.
Mr. Clay became quite animated. He
spoken with feeling and powerful effect.
He thanked the people for the affection
ate kindness they had always shown him
and should ever remember it.

remark, only confirms the opinion we
expressed in regard to the predictions
of a general war growing out of this

Russia has been frightened into an aban

ready on the way. but we are sorry to see
that there is no truth in the report that
Kossuth has left Turkey. The Sultan ;
as we read, intends to keep him prison

Lord Mayor's Day was celebrated id
London, on the 9th, with the usual' mag

Ambassador, Lord Howdon, Lord Pal

!ran mentioned gentleman, in the course
of a speech he made ; after alluding to
the felicitous remdrks of the French
Ambassador, happily referred to the
peaceful relations existing between,
Great Britain and our otvn country.—
Lord John Russell said he had the hap
piness of addressing the meeting in
times of profound peace ; and he thought
the speech they had just heard so elo
quently expressed from the French Am
bassador was a proof of the friendly
ties which connected them with other
countries. They had lately had the rep
resentative of another foreign power ar
rive there—the Minister of United

the toastmaster, he trusted they would
all "Drink to him in a loving cup; and

to draw still closer the bonds of amity
that unite the young and growing repub

ARRIVAL OF THE CANADA.
The Philadelphia papers of Thursday last
furnish us with the following additional news,
one week later from Europe :
The political news is unimportant.—
The most gratifying feature of the week's
news is (he interview between the Pres
ident of France and Mr. lives, the new
American Minister, at Elysee National.
The American Ministry made an address
on the occasion, but observed total si
lence respecting the misunderstanding
between France and the United States,
arising out of the conduct of M. Poussin.
The President however, alluded to the
affair in terms flattering to the American
Minister and his country.
The dispute between - the Emperor of
Morocco and the French seems to in
crease in violence. The French Consul
at Mogadore has been treated harshly
and ignominiously, and a French frigate
has been sent to his relief. There is
row every probability of this affair en.
ding in the bombardment of Tangier.
From Rome we have but little that is
certain and interesting. It seems, how
ever, that the Pope really meditates an
early return to Rome, and, indeed, his
arrival at one moment was actually an

From Hungary we learn that fresh
