JUAN warrTAKER. August 20, 1850.—pd. It. WHIG MEETING. "OLD BILL JOHNSTON , " IS COMING! The Whigs of Huntingdon Borough and vicini ty are requested to assemble at the Court House, THIS (TUESDAY) EVENING, at the ringing of the bell, for the purpose of ma king arrangements to receive Gov. JOHNSTON, who will arrive in the evening train of Cars from Harrisburg. Let there be a GENERAL RALLY of the Wings of the Borough, and give our distin guished Whig Governor an enthusiastic, heart warm "Welcome to Old Huntingdon." The Governor will address his fellow-citizens at the Court House, ales his arrival, and the people of all parties are respectfully invited to attend. By order of the Whig County Committee. JAS. CLARK, Chairman. er We are indebted to Hem. 8. CALvn for a valuable pablic document. Cottage Post Office, in this county, discon tinued a few months since, has been re-established, and WE. WALKER appointed Postmaster. Whig Organization. It is high time that the work of thorough OR GANIZATION in the Whig ranks should be com menced. The time is short, and what is to be done must be done quickly. So little excitement exists in the political world, that it is much to be feared there will bee small vote pulled at the com ing election. Awl when this happens, we have generally observed, to our sorrow, that the billing off on the Whig side is usually about double that of our opponents. Let us go to work then, imme diately, to effect a party ORGANIZATION that will ensure the attendance of every Whig voter at the polls, and the triumphant election of the WHOLE WHIG TICKET. Rouse yourselves, Whigs! VICTORY can only be IVOR by EXERTION! Let there be Energy, Organization and Action on the part of our Whig brethren, everywhere! Impor tant issues are involved in the coming eontest, and every Whig is expected to do his DUTY. VIM "once more unto the breach—dear friends, once stone !" Let us give "a long pull, a strong pull, and a pull altogether," and on the second Tues day of October next, the Whig flag will again float in triumph over "old Huntingdon !" "Awake !—arouse !—the standard flies, High sounds the bugle cull; The voice of hattle's on the breeze, Anouee, Wince—ONE AND ALL!" Military Encampment. A military encampment is to come off at Mount Union, in this county, on the 15th of October.— Extensive arrangements arc being made, and a number of fine looking companies are expected to be in attendance. It will no doubt be a splendid affair, and attract crowds of people from different parts of the county. We learn that the "Hunt ingdon Guards" expect to attend, and to be ac companied by the Huntingdon Band. Locorocomm.—Starving American mechanics and feeding British paupers ! If you like it, vote for Farman, the Free Trade candidate. THE COMING ELECTION. Duty of the Friends of Free Labor. There never was a time, perhaps, in the politi cal history of Pennsylvania, when it was more im portant for the friends of AMERICAN INTERESTS to discharge their duty faithfully. The issues in volved in the coming-election are of immense im portance ; and every man who has the welfare and prosperity of eur gootiold Commonwealth at heart, should participate actively in the campaign, and leave nothing undone that would contribute to the success of the Whig Ticket. The Free Traders are making a desperate effort to elect Andy Park er to Congress; and every scheme which the in genuity of these political tricksters can invent, will be brought to. bear in, his favor. This man Park er, who, on several occasions, insulted the Whigs of this district, by stigmatising theut as "TO RIES," in the open and avowed ENEMY.OF AMERICAN INTERESTS, and bitterly hew& to every measure that will ameliorate the condition of the Laboring masses! Whigs! Tariff men! Are you willing that such a man, holding such doe. trines, should mis-represent the "Iron District" in Congress I If not, then we urge you to go to work at once to secure the election of Dr. JOHN M'CULLOCII, who has ever been the zealous advocato of the PROTECTIVE POLICY, .d of every other measure that would advance the interests aids native State, and improve thc con dition of the toiling industrial masses. Ile is as much the friend of the poverty-stricken tenant of the humble cabin, as of the lordly proprietor of the most gorgeously decorated mansion in the land.— With him, wealth makes no distinction; he treats every man As A MAN, and in this way has secured the respect and confidence of all classes. Ile is, too, a Whig of the right stripe—a Pennsylvania Whig, a Northern Whig, a National Whig, with whom the People of this district can safely entrust their interests in the National Legislature. Dr. M'Cum.octi is emphatically "the main f,,r the TIMES, the man for the Paormi," and if our Whig friends do their duty, the result will prove that he is also " the man for VICTORY I" But there are other issues of great importance. Much depends upon the political complexion of, the next Legislature. A UNITED STATES. SENATOR is to elect, and this of itself should induce every friend of Pennsylvania to go to work to prevent,if possible, the election of an enemy to the great interests of our Iron-botutd Common wealth. If the Locofocos sneered in electing a majority in the next Legislature, they will elect a FREE TRADE navocater awl. ENE AT TO HOME LABOU to the United States Scant. Pennsylva nia has long enough been misrepresented by a cipher, and her interests too long neglected, in the. highest and• most important legishttive body in the Government. The great Tariff interests of the Keystone State require that a good sterling, RE LIABLE TARIFF WHIG should fill the seat so 9 P. Y . long worse than uselessly occupied by Mr. Stur geon. But to secure. a Whig U. S. s , Cuator, it is necessary to have a WHIG LEGISLATURE. Another important duty to be performed by the next Legislature, is Apportioning the State into Congressional districts. With a Locofoco major ity, the people cannot expect justice. The reck less course of that party in regard to Apportioning the State, last session, is sufficient to convince ev ery one that the same system of gerrymander will be attempted again. Thousands of the tax-payers will be disfranchised, and the State districted in such a way as to secure a majority in favor of the ruinous policy of FREE TRADE, of which the Locofoco leaders are the sworn advocates. To prevent so disastrous a result, we must have a WHIG LEGISLATURE! This we can secure if the proper efforts are made. Then let us all go to work unitedly, heartily, and with a first resolve to win the day. Our candidates, Messrs. SMITH and M'CUNE, for Assembly, arid M'MUItTRIE for Senator, are men of intelligence and unbend ing integrity, who understand the interests of the People, and will legislate as true friends of Penn sylvania should do. Then let all go to work at ; once, with a determination not to cease their ex ertions, nor ground their weapons, until the battle is fought, the victory won, and the glorious Amer ican Banner of PROTECTION TO HOME LA BOR floats is triumph over every portion of our time-honored Commonwealth. A Rich Entertainment. There is every indication of a serious outbreak between the rival factions of Locofocoisin in this county. From present appearances, we should'' not be surprised if it resulted in a regular "knock down And drag out" fight, with "gromul and lofty tumbling by the whole company" of these cele brated political vaulters. The friends of Messrs. MADDEN and MILLER are justly indignant at the TRICKERY and FRAUD resorted to by one set of the Locofoco wire-workers in this place, to get them out of the way; and the friends of Mr. SPEED are equally indignant at the attempt of another faction to choke him on; after being regularly set tled upon by the famous "Committee of five;" while the little faction who preferred the renegade Whig, Whittaker, finding themselves completely "headed," their candidate repudiated, and all their schemes thwarted, are driven to desperation, and in their reckless indignation strike right and left like an irritated blind rattle-snake in dog days.— We hope the "harmonious Democracy" may have "a good time of it." As we predicted, the efforts of these political tricksters to create discord in the Whig ranks, have recoiled upon themselves. They are now engaged in a triangular fight, which is as disgusting to the respectable members of, their own party, as it is amusing to the Whigs.— 'The entertainment "opens rich," and rare sport may be anticipated before the close of the cam paign. All we have to say is— "lay on Macduff, And cursed be him who first cries hold! enough." Murder in Hollidaysburg. A colored man named Alexander Edmondson, of McVeytown, was killed at Hollidaysburg on Tuesday last, by Alexander Hutchinson, a boat man. They got into some difficulty, when the lat ter seized a loaded musket and shot Edmondson through the body. Hutchinson is now iti' jail. gir We have cheering news from Blair, Mifflin, Centre and Juniata. M'Cutt.ocit will sweep the district like a whirlwind. Parker's Free Trade doctrines don't "take," in the Iron district. The Whig battle cry is M'Culloch and Protection! A NEW MOVEMENT. Another Richmond in the Field! "They wire in and wire out, And leave the people still in doubt, Whether the snake that made the track Was going north or coining back." It is really amusing to witness the gyrations of the Locofoco tricksters in this Borough. They "wheel about and turn about" with such astonish ing rapidity, that it is difficult to keep pace with their evolutions. We have endeavored, in vain, to keep the run of the movements of these skilful political thimble-riggers. "Here it is, there it is-- now yon see it, now you don't see it." Lastweek we thought they had finally concluded their ar rangements, and that the contest for Si. riff was narrowed down to ZEIGLER and WHITTAKER.- But in the language of the old song, "doubtful things are veryuncertain." The result shows that we were mistaken. The political cards have been shuffled again, and a new trump is turned up!— Whittaker has been entirely abandoned, and' "an other Richmond" enters the field, in the person of Mr. Romer SPEER, ns the regular Loaofoco cau cus nominee, in opposition to Mr. Zesoena. The "bargain and sale" entered into between the Loco Foco tricksters in this place, and Whittaker, is utterly repudiated by the "Democracy" of the country. They are not willing to trust a man who turned TRAITOR to his own party, fur the sake of political preferment. Such be the fate of all political traitors ! Whittaker having been abandoned by the Loco Focos, the contest will be between ZEIGLER and SPEER. Personally, we have not a word to say against Mr. Speer. We believe he is a very clev er man, but no more clever or capable than his Whig opponent. It is useless for us to urge upon our Whig friends the importance of sustaining the regular Whignominee, Mr. ZEIGLER. All see it, feel it, know it ; anti we look forward with confi dence to the result. All the tricks of our oppo nents to slip in another Loraine° Sheriff; will prove abortive. Confident of the justness of our cause, and the superiority of our candidates, we antici pate the election of the WHOLE WHIG TICK ET by a majority that win annihilate Locofocoism, and send the Guerrillas back to their secret hiding• places, covered with confusion and disgrace! The Tariff Candidate. The nomination of Dr. Jonx M'Cuizeorti far Congress, is everywhere throughout the District responded to with enthusiastic unanimity by the friends of FREE LABOR, of all parties. Die popularity,. personally and politically, is unbound ed--overlcaping all party barriers, and sweeping down all opposition. Dr. M'Cut..toen is a man who wins the esteem , and respect of alt who snake' Isis personal acquaintance. Possessing, as he does, superior talents, energy, and perseverance, he will make a faithful and efficient Representative of the "Iron district" in the Halls of our National Legis- Ware. lle is the tirm friend °film toiling masses— the' zealous advocate of PROTECTION TO AM ERICAN LABOR—and if elected, will do all iu his power to secure such modffiCations of vhe.pres ent Tariff I% will effectually protect off the great interests of our good old Commonwealth. TARIFF MEN of the 17th district ! It now re maim with you to make another demonstration, and let the enemies of Pennsylvania know thatyou are determined upon this question. Arouse, then, Farmers, Mechanics, and Laboring men of Old Huntingdon—gather all under the truc•AMEnICAN banner, and let your united voices go up in favor of AMERICAN INTERESTS! Remember the base Locofoeo SWINDLE of 1844—remember the insults, injuries, and deceptions which have been heaped upon you by the leaders of the Free Trade party— remember your nur v to yourselves and your coun try—and then rally in the majesty of your strength and go in a united mass for M'Cem.ocu AND PROTECTION TO HOME LABOR ! The Whole Whig Ticket. We cannot too frequently urge upon our Whig friends the importance of sustaining their PARTY ORGANIZATION, and strictly adhering to REGULAR NOMINATIONS, at all times, and under all circum stances. The next election will be an important one, and it will require the utmost union, harmo ny, and concentration of effort on the mut of the Whigs to carry the State. Every attempt at dis organization should be indignantly frowned down, and the disorganisers held up as -"fixed figures for the time of scorn To point Ills slow uninovilq; finger at." "Principles, not men," should be the motto of every true Whig, and the man who would barter away his principles, and sell himself to the enemy with the hope of obtaining a paltry office, digraces thename of Whig, and is unworthy the support of all honorable men. We are confident that such political traitoriam will not be tolerated in Hun tingdon county. The Whigs of this county are intelligent, high-minded, patriotic men, who are governed by principle, and cmmot be seduced from their allegiance to the Whig party, by the cun ningly devised tales and artful tricks of unprinci pled "rule or ruin" politicians. They are fully aware of the important issues at stake, and will support TIEE WHIG TICKET—THE WHOLE WHIG TICKET—AND 'mmo BUT TIIE Wino TICKET! The prospects never were more flatter ing, and our friends abroad may rest assured that old Huntingdon will he "right side up" in October. Whigs, Can You Vote for Hinz? A correspondent of the Juniata Sentinel charges Parker, the British Free Trade candidate for Con gress, with having declared in effect, at a meeting in Miffiintown, a few years ago, that "the Whigs of the present day were TORIES, and the enemies of their country t" Mr. Parker made a similar declaration in this place, a few years since. This then is the GREAT man who is held up as liberal and national in his feelings—who loves self less and country more!— ' Ono who would he willing, nevertheless, to bow the knee to SLAVERY, andas strongly advocate its extension, as he now does the Pauper Labor of Europe! Yes, this is the man who solicits Whig rotes to elect him to Congress, though ho but lately esteemed them no better than TORIES! Whigs of old Huntingdon, mark the libeler! eir The Native American State Convention met last week and nominated for Canal Commis sioner, Dr. Jacob Dewees, of Montgomery; for Surveyor General, Kimbel Cleaver, of Schuylkill; for Auditor General, E. S. Neale, of Allegheny. Charles E. Kinkead, Esq. This gentleman called upon us, personally, a few days since, and declared; most emphatically, that there was no arrangement between him and the Locofocos to the effect that, if elected; he. was to vote for the Locofoco candidate for U. S. Senator —that he had given no such pledge, and that if successful' he would be a Whig and act with the Whigs as heretofore. He admitted taus, howev er, that the Locofocos demanded such a pledge as we charged him with having given, refusing to support him upon any other grounds; and that he Lad so informed' a gentleman of this county who imparted the fact to us. He persisted, however, in the declaration that he refused to give the re quired pledge. We have no desire to do injustice to Mr. Kinkead, and would he glad to believe his statement to be true; forhis ungenerous opposition to the regular Whig ticket is bad enough, and suf ficient, of itself, to render his position very equivo cal, to say she least. We feel confident, that in view of the issues at stake; no Whig who is a Whig front principle, will support him' or any oth er guerrilla. The overwhelming defeafdhat awaits Charles E. Kinkead, will convince him that he has made a bad political mistake in volunteering against the Whig party. Ambition is sometimes a very dangerous thing—especially that kind' of "Vaulting ambition which o'erleaps itself, And fulls on the other:side." The:Next Legislature. It is possible the next Legitlature will be called upon to district the State foe members of Congress for ten years—it will certainly be called upon to elect aU. S. Senator. Our principles—the prin ciples of the State, require that this representative should be a Tariff man, a reliable Tariff man—and such men are only found among Whigs. Such kind of Tariff men as Mr. Sturgeon, who attribute the depression in manufactures to over productions, will not answer. But we want a real Tariff man, and the people should see to it that we have one of the right kind'. These are the hasty considerations which appeal to the judgment of the people—the freemen—as well as the Whigs generally. In view of the pen dency of the great question—the Tariff question— every officer in the• State to be elected this fall should be a Whig. They are the• only protectors to be relied upon when this question is up. How important, therefore, that Wm. B. gsnrit, Saris R. M'Cume and R. A. lirMeirrinc, should be elected. They are all gentlemen ofability and sterling integrity, and the important questions coining up for tie• edible of the next Legisliiture; renders their election not only a political triumph, but vitally important to the great interests of Pennsylvania and the' Union: Whig MUM at Cassville. There•will be.o. grand Whig Rally at Cassville to-morrow. The•news that " OLD BILL JOHN STON" is to be there, has spread like wild-fire through the country, and we anticipate an immense gathering of the People on that occasion, to receive him. We understand that our Cassville friends, (who always do things about right,) are making preparations to give Gov. Jotcsaron a cordial mid enthusiastic welcome. We advise everybody to turn out, as they may never have another oppor tunity of seeing and hearing the best Governor Pennsylvania has ever had. Gov. JOHNSTON will leave hero to-morrow morning for Cassville, accompanied by a large number of the Whigs of this place, and will arrive there about noon. Ile will be met by a military and civic procession a few miles this side of Cass vile, and escorted into the town. The meeting will take•place•at 1 o'clock, P. M. "An Eloquent ALppeal.,r We invite the attention of our Whig friends to the Address of the Lancaster Whig Committee, on the first page of to-day's Journal.. It sets forth the several State issues pending in durcondugcontest, and eloquently enforces their importance: We trust they will be seriously considered by all. our Whig friends, and have the effect of arousing them to. prompt and rigorous ACTION ! With a proper effort, we can achieve another glorious triumph.— A FULL WHIG TOTH !it all that is wanting to• se , cure the election of the State. and County Whig Tickets. Thee wake up, friends, arid prepare• fie ACTION! See to it, that every Whig vote in your respective districts is deposited in the ballet box. Let nothing prevent you from faithfully discharg ing your whole duty, and a brilliant victory will crown your patriotic labors. The Latest Movement. The Locofoco managers held another caucus on Saturday evening, which resulted in the declina tion of Wn.tv in favor of Mr. Si-rca, who is now regarded as the• regular Locofoco nominee for Sherift Things have , now assnmed a tangible shape, and the people CRII , act and vote knowingly and understandingly. Whittaker has been entire ly abandoned by the Locofocos who bargained with him to run against the Whig ticket—all the Origi nal Locofoco candidates havebeen "choked ofi"— and we will have an open field and a fair fight be tween the regular party candidates, ZEIGLER and SPEER. Of course Mr. ZEIGLER will be elected by a large majority. Pepper it into Them. Friend CLARK, of the Huntingdon , Journal, is kept busy between the Locofocos and some rene gade Whigs, in his district, whoa are hose enough to oppose the regularly nominated ticket bee:lista the Convention didn't see proper to elect them.-- They are, however, only showing the wisdom of the Convention in passing them by. Pepper it into the pitiful creatures, Clark.—Lebanon Cormier. far We will endeavor to do "the pitiful crea turoi" justice, friend Worrn, on the principle that "one renegade is worse than ten Turks." If we arc not mistaken in the "signs of the times," the People will "pepper it into them" most eAbc tunny, on the second Tuesday of October. Railroad Bridge Broke Down. A small Railroad bridge near Bell's Furnace, between Huntingdon and Hollidaysburg, broke down on Tuesday evening last, after the evening train had passed over it. No injury was sustained. The bridge it is said, was put up in a "hurry" by a contractor who wanted to get through with his work. In consequence of this break, the trains were out of time for a few days, but all's right now. McConnellsburg has been fixed upon as the County seat of Fulton county. Thirteen thousand dollars was raised by the citizens for the erection of the public buildings. PROTECTION AGAIN DEFEATED. Locofocoism and Slavery against the Free Labor of the North 2 Notwithstanding the concessions made to the South in the passage of the Texas Boundary, and Fugitive Slave Bills, and establishing Senatorial Governments for New Mexico and Utah, without the anti-slavery Proviso, the representatives of Locofocoism and Slavery have again united in Congress to crush the Free Labor of the North ! On the 14th instant, an effort was mad's, in the NOUS° of Representatives, to procure a modifica tion of the Tariff, with a view to protecting the in terests in this country, now so' seriously affected by the operations of the Tariff of 1846. The ques tion was brought up by the introduction of a report from the Committee of Ways and Means adverse Many alteration of the Tariff laws, and (Adoring it to be inexpedient now to take any action. on the subject. Mr. Vinton offbred a substitute instructing the Committee to bring in a bill, requiring the apprais ers in appraising all goods, waxes and merchandise, imported thirty days after the passage of this act, into any port of the United. States, to adopt the average market value of similar articles, in the principal ports of the United States, during the year ending 30th June, 1846, under such regula tions, to be prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury, as shell prevent frau& and under valtu ations, and secure a uniform valuation throughout the United Stater.• Mr. Phelps moved that the whole subject be laid upon the table, which was lost—yeas 93; nays 94. The vote was then taken upon the substitute of Mr. Vinton,. which was lost—yeas 93, nays 96. The Locofocos, with four exceptions, voted against this amendment, and every Whig but two, Messrs. Clingman and Caldwell, from N. Caroli na, voted for it. And even Aar Democrats from Pennsylvania, viz :—Messrs. Dimmick, Mann, Mc- Lanahan and Ross—voted against it! Thus de claring themselves against any further protection of the great Coal and Iron interests of the State. Their votes in favor of the amendment, or even• the votes of but two of them, would , have• secured its passage; and have given Pennsylvania the pro tection she so much needs. But as their party has frequently done before, they basely deserted the interests of their State, and stood, side by side with. the Salve Divers of the South. After the defeat of Mr. Vinton's proposition, the question was taken on the resolution of Mr. Toombs, declaring it inevedient to vac any ac tion upon the subject, and decided in the negative —yeas 91, nay, M Mr. Brooks moved to roconsider,WA rs view of introducing a resolution, which he sent to the Clerk's table to be read. The resolution provided for the appoinhnent of a committee of seven to sit during the recess of Congress, and gather infor mation in relation to the operations of . the Tariff with power to send for persons and papers. Mr. Thompson of Miss., moved to lay the mo tion to reconsider on the table, which was carried —yeas 93, nays 92. This ended the contest, and consigned the whole matter to the tomb of the capulets. P. S. We learn that Mr. Stevens has given notice of his intention to offer another bill in the House. ArrFral of Amein Bey. The Turkish Commissioner and his suite landed in new York on the 13th inst. He was dressed in a blue frock coat, white pants, a red scull cap, epaulette, and wore a rich order of diamonds.— Amin Bey is the name of this representative of! the Ottoman Porte. yle• was received with much ceremony at Castle• Garden, by a committee ap pointed by the common council for that purpose. An address from the•mayor was interpreted for him, in which. the protection of Kossuth and his compatriots was mentioned as evidence of the kind- ness of the Sultan's heart.. The turk replied in the most becoming manner, saying that Colt by his great tire , arm Morse by chaining the lightning, and others by their great inventions, had rendered his Sultan. familiar with American genius, and =dined him anxious to become more so. He remained is New York a few days, as the guest of the city, and then proceeded to Washington. A Full Whig Vote. We hope our Whig friends in this county will adopt measures to secure a FULL VOTE in every election. district. Let not a single Whig voter be overlooked—see that all are on the ground on the day of the election, and that every Whig vote is polled. Let nothing keep any of you at home.— Should it rain, tons out like. TRUE MEN and bntve the "pelting of the pittiless storm." The issues involved are of immense importance—the country calls upon every ratriotto do his duty, and shame to hint who falters ! Let all go to work with cheer ful hearts and a fixed determination to get out a Pura. Wino VOTE, and the whole Whig Ticket will be triumphantly elected. Intense Excitement. Friday last was a throng day in Huntingdon.— The Circus attracted an immense crowd of coun try people; and the extensive pavilion was crowd ed to its utmosteapacity, both in the afternoon and evening. When the whistle of the Locomotive WAS heard, in the evening, there was a general rush of men, women and children to the Depot, to witness, for the first time, the arrival of the Cars; and the puffing of the "Iron Horse" created the most intense curiosity and excitement. The "en tertainment" at the Depot was decidedly rich, and far eclipsed the Circus, "Fiery Dragon" and all ! Two Men Rine& The watchman of the railroad bridge at Peters burg, was killed on Tuesday last, by the locomo tive, and another man is said to have been killed on the same day, at lltincannon. Both these men were on the track, owe of them we believe asleep, and the other perhaps not sober. It is really as tonishing that any one should he so fool-hardy as to make a railroad, with trains passing up or down every few hours, a place for taking a nap. fir A matt has been discovered in Kentucky, who takes a great many newspapers and always pays for them irr advance. Theprintees of sever al' States are already arranging to contributchlocks of marble, for his monument I A VOLUME IN A LINE.—At a temperance cele bration in Tennessee, a little lad appeared in the procession, bearing a flag on which was inscribed : " All's right when daddy's sober :" The Foreign Grain Market. The Washington Republic commends to the careful perusal of those farmers of the Union who ore anxiously looking fir• the realization of Mr. Secretary Walker's promises of a European mar ket that was to "go on increasing" from the time when time "potato rot" enabled us to export to the amount of some twenty or thirty millions of dol lars' worth grain, the following paragraph which we take from the London Examiner of the 10th ultimo : The Emperor of Russia has ordered the forma dun of five or six lines of road connecting the south of Russia with Oi'emu, in order that the immense' quantity of corn produced in this fertile and almost virgin soil may ho more readily transported for export. "It is expected," says a Russian cor respondent, "that in a few years the markets of En ' rope will be so overflooded with Russian corn that all competition will be impossible." Russia, it is well known, can produce enough to supply all that will be needed in Great Britain at lower rates than it can he raised in the United States, and if the project spoken of above is once' accomplished, that Empire can deliver Wheat' its England at from 50 cents to $1 per bushel—and should prices rule here at the latter figure, export' it to the United States. In such case, we ask any intelligent &miner, WllO.llO44irCS a fair renumeratims for his labor, whether a protective• tariff would not better suit his views than the free trade doctrine. now advocated by darkamfoco party? One dol lar per bushel fur wheat is low enough—in fact, for nmeh less than that the* American flintier can not raise it—yet ASDREIV Plturisn, the loeofoeo candidate for Congress, would tell you, should such a state of things arise as is referred to above, that it will not do to put a tariff,. wheat, because his policy is to bay where we can bay cheapest, no. matter how the article is produced, whether by slave, serf, or pauper labor. On the other hand, Joux IWCum.ocu would say, put on such a duty as will protect the farmer against ruinous compe tition, and enable him to pay fair rates to the men who labor for him:. That is Site iltsut—aml he ` OVCCTE them let the voters decide. Col. R. A. ill'Murtrie. The Locofocos have abandoned the idea of pre ;seining a regularly nominated candidate-against Col.
