Union Meeting.
A monster meeting of the friends of the Union,
was held in Philadelphia on Thursday evening last.
Indeed, if all the friends of the Union were pres
ent, we would suppose that the entire population
turned out, as we never heard there was an enemy
of the Union in the city of "Brotherly Love."— '
Hence the necessity of the meeting was never very
apparent to us. lkwever, the whole affair was
well conducted. The Hon. Joni SARGENT, (a
name everywhere respected,) presided, and not- '
withstanding some of the managers were of the •
small potato order, who would be the first to skulk
if the liubm needed defenders, many gentlemen,
distinguished for their patriotism, intelligence, and
high standing in society, participated in the pro
seeding'. Among these we may mention the
names ofJOlllBll RANDALL, Jos. R. INGERSOLL,
RICEARD Breit, and JAMES PAGE. These gen
tlemen all made able speeches, calculated to com
mand respect and consideration. Hon. GEORGE
M. DALLAS, also made a speech, and lion. JAS.
BucstAxAtt wrote a long letter to the meeting.—
We have but little respect for anything emanating
from these gentlemen. The former, when Vice
President, by his casting vote, destroyed the Pro
tection of Pennsylvania industry. Aud we agree
with the Deily Sun, that after that parricidal act,
we take all his protestations of affection for the
Union with large allowances. Divide the Union
north of Mason and Dixon's line, and offer Dallas
the Presidency of the Northern Republic, and
there is no doubt ho would accept it. liis casting
vote would never cast such a chance away. And
as for Mr. Buchanan, it is well known that he is
always on the aide of the South, in every contro
versy between the two sections, the Presidential
chair being the principal object with him.
The sentiments of attachment to the Union, ex
pressed at this meeting, will find &hearty response
in the heart of every man of every party through
otit Pennsylvania. The "Keystone of the Arch"
will alWays uphold the Union of these States, and
will never allow the fair fabric to be destroyed,
without the stoutest resistance from her sturdy and
patriotic sons.
President Fillmore.
President Fillmore has written a letter to a Mr.
Collins, of Georgia, owner of a fugitive slave now
in Baltimore. The letteracknowledges the receipt
of several newspaper slips in reference to the pro
ceedings in Boston, accompanied with a letter from
Mr. Collins, calling the President's attention to
them, showing the manner in which his agents
were received and treated, while endeavoring to
execute the law, and inquiring whether the Presi
dent has not the power to cheek such lawless pro
ceedings 1
The Presidentreplies in a calm and dispassion
ate manner, and says whenever a Federal officer,
charged with the execution of the law, neglects his
duty, ho will he dismissed and punished, and
should the law be opposed by combinations too
powerful to be overcome by ordinary means, then
the militia and the army and navy of the United,
States will be called into requisition. He provers
es a rigid investigation into the charges preferred
against the Marshal, at Boston, and' urges that no
thing be done to excite the popular mind, but that
the laws be strictly observed by all sections of the
Union, without any effort to excite opposition to

Death of Col• Johnson.
The Telegraph announces the death of Col.
Richard M. Johnson, at Frankfurt, Ky., on the
19th inst. Ile died of paralysis, having had a
second and very severe attack on the 14th inst.,
Ile was about seventy years of age, and had been
long in public life. In 1807, being then under
thirty, he was elected to the U. S. House of rep
reJentatives, which post he held for twelve con
secutive years. In 1813 he raised a regiment of
cavalry of 1000 men, at the head of which, under
Geu. Harrison, he served gallantly, and at the
battle of the Thames distingnished himself for his
bravery, besides killing with his own hands the fa
mous chief Tecumseh. In 1810 he was transfer
red from the H. of Representatives to the Senate
where he served until 1829. Ile was then re-elec
ted to the House, and in 1837 was chosen Vice
President of the United States. In 1841 he reti
red to private life, but has since been three times
elected to the Legislature of Kentucky, and was a
representative at the time of his death.
Speeches from Statesmen.
Messrs. BENTON, WEBSTER, and CLAY, have re
cently been making speeches in relation to public
affairs. Mr. Benton made a long speech at St.
Louis upon his course in politics, a few weeks ago.
Ile spoke of the omnibus bill, its final separation
and passage in separate bills, and the long session
of Congress, which he said was occasioned by Mr.
Clay's changing ground on the propriety of sepa
rating these measures, &c. Ile defended General
Taylor, reviewed the rise and progress of nullifica
tion in Missouri, alluded to the Anti-Benton party
an a mean, diabolical set, with whom neither whigs
nor democrats should affiliate, and again denounced
Mr. Clay with great severity.
On the 18th inst., Mr. Witusern, was welcom
ed to New York by a number of citizens, whom he
subsequently addressed. Mr. Webster proceeded
to speak of the purposes for which the Union was
formed. The grand objects in creating the confed
cration of States were first for the promotion of
• human happiness, and second to promote the great
system of trade and commerce. When our com
merce is in danger, it will then become the duty of
every true patriot to rally for its protection. The
Union, however, is not in danger when the spirit
of the people is awakened for its defence. Con-
ventions North and South avail hut little. They
do no harm, but on the contrary excite the people
more to observe closely the events that might en- ,
danger safety. The object for which this govern
was formed, is greater now than it ever has
been. People need not be alarmed. We shall
continue to act together so long as we cherish the
interests that makes us one people. This is the
great purpose that should be first in the minds of
all. With this the bond of Union will grow stron
ger and stronger, and be impregnable to all other
powers. Mr. Webster was peculiarly eloquent and
happy throughout. lle resumed his seat amid re
peated cheers.
The speech delivered by the lion. HENRY CLAY
at Lexington, on Friday, 15th inst.,before the cit
izens of that place and the members of the State
Legislature, is spoken of as having been a master
ly effort. He spoke of the difficulties which have
threatened our Union, and strongly condemned
the proceedings of the fanatics of the North and of
the free States in opposing the execution of the
Fugitive Slave law. Ile held that the opposition
. manifested towards this great compromise measure
has at present done more mischief than all that has
I been done by the ultras of the South. Ile strong
ly advised a submission to the law. All true pa-
triots would aid iu sustaining the Constitution.—
Those who raised their hands against the execution
and requirements of this act were enemies not only
to their own future welfare, but to the peace and
happiness of the country. Mr. Clay descanted at
, length, .upon the great measures of the country,
and reiterated many of the sentiments he uttered
' 1 in the Senate during the last session of Congress.
fie held then as he held now, that Slavery could
not and cannot exist in California, no matter what
might be the enactments of the General Govern
ment. Ito spoke of the Union in the most elo
quent strains of patriotism, and called upon all the
hoary-headed and the rising generations to hold it
nearest their hearts.
Dinner to Hon. John M. Clayton.
The complimentary dinner given by his politi ,
cal friends in Delaware to the Hon. Jno. M. Clay
ton, Secretary of State under Gon. Taylor, took
place on Saturday 16th inst., at Willmington.—
The North American has a lengthy and glowing
report of the proceedings with a full report of Mr. I
Clayton's.spsech, which was the great feature of
the occasion:. Mr.. Clayton enteren into a full and
thorough vindication Otte administration of Gen.
Taylor, closing with a most clogoent and effecting
tribune to the pure and lofty character of the il
lustrious patriot. The policy of Gee. Taylor with
respect to the new territories, which was claimed
to be indentieta with that of Mr, Polk which had
received the sanction of the South and which
would have avoided all agitation and discord, was
ably defended by Mr. Clayton. The administra
tion of President Fillmore he also warmly eulogi
zed and commended to the continued and cordial
support of the Whig party of the coonrry. The
payment of the Galphin claim was also alluded to,
which Mr. Clayton declared never would have
passed had any member of the Cabinet known that '
Mr. Crawford was interested in it. The other
features oe Gen. Taylor's administration were sev
erally dwelt upon and explained with candor and
frankness. The speech of Mr. Clayton was recol:
ved with the warmest applause. Its exposition of
the policy, purposes, and acts of the late adminis
tration, was most able wad satisfactory, and the
country will hail it as a triumphant vindication.—
After the speech , letters were read from Daniel
Webser and other distinguished Whigs regretting
their inhability to attend, to whom complimentary
toasts wore given. Morton McMichael, Esq., nus
called for, and made a speech, in which he made
the company promise, for Delaware, never to be
'licked' again. He said that with WINFIELD Score l
for President in 1852, the Whigs of Doleware,
and the Union would bo triumphant. Ho culled
on Mr. Clayton to say something on the life of l
General Scott. Mr. Clayton responded in a glow
ing eulogy on Gen. Scott's career from Queostown
to the city of Mexico, particularly noticing the bold
stand taken in defence of the Irish soldiers taken
from the American Army in 1812, Scott's name
seas received with loud cheers.

providing a cover for the summer-sault it is about

"Ironmasters," after abusing them for their error,
ignorance and insanity in "lending their business
as a stalking horse for the Whig Party." It next

The only complaint now or very' recently heard
from this State against the Tariff of '46, is confined
to the duties on won ant? coal. Its opponents have
ceased to assert tluit the country would be ruined
because ABUOT LAWRENCE and the other cotton
lords of New England are not allowed to tax the
people 180 per cent, on muslins by means of the
"cheating mimimnms ;" neither do they now de
'fend the absurdity of taxing silk goods by weight;
and they scam willing to abandon ntsey of the oth
er impostures which flourished smiler the Act of
1842. It is fur a higher duty on iron and coal,
and for that alone, that they now contend. They
have forgotten all of their song except the chorus !
Now, if they are willing to compromise on such
terms, so are we. If the iron and coal business
can be taken out tyrpolaies by giving a moderate
specific duty on those articles, let it he done. We
do not wish to have the country kept in a state of
continual agitation for such a trifle."
Now, the first question is, can Pennsylvania La
eofoeoista do the thing that it promises to the Irons
masters? Will the Congress of the United States
single out and separate the Iron and Coal ofrenn
sylvanitt from all the other industrial interests of
the country, and protect the former with a specific-
duty while it leaves the latter exposed to the un
just operation of the all roiorew system which pre
vails under the Tariff of 18461 Is the Locofoco
ism of other States prepared thus to overlook and
neglect every other interest in order by this bribe
to secure the electoral vote of Pennsylvania for its
Presidential Candidate in 1852? On what prin
ciple can such legislation be defended? The
Whigs, abused as they have been, never wanted
to sustain and protect the Iron business and leave
all others to suffer. They were and are in favor
of a national policy which will extend just and fair
protection to all branches of industry and as en
courage and promote the development of our natu
ral resources, and give employment to our people
at the American rate of wages. But what is it
that Locofocoism now proposes to do To bestow
exclusive rights, benefits and privileges upon those
engaged in the Iron and Coal business, provided
they wiil desert every other branch of industry—
abandon the great principle of protection, which
can only be sustained in reason and by argumeth,
when it is advocated for the common benefit ofla
bor in all its departtnents, and vote the Locofoco
ticket so as to make Pennsylvania sure for that
party, and the spoils safe for its greedy leaders.—
Such is the bold and bare-faced proposition now
made, in which the Locofocos, to secure party as
cendency, eat their words, and promise to do the
very thing which ever since they mustered courage
to vindicate the Tariff of 1846 they have asserted
to be wrong in principle, and especially unjust to
the agricultural portion of the community. Now
what do the farmers think of this new turn in the
course of their professed fliends par excellence, who
have told them that the Iron-masters wereenrses
to the community," and wanted to levy an oppres
sive tax for their own profit on every axe, hatchet
or plough-iron that the farmer used? Now, they
see these same Locofocos offering to sell the far
mer-friends whom they professed to love so dearly
to those very"aristocratic Iron-masters," to whom
they offer a specific duty, as a special privilege
which nobody else is to enjoy, in order to keep out
the competition of the British Iron-master, and
enable them to sell their Iron to the farmers at just
whatsoever price they think proper to charge. If
this sounds like nonsense, we beg that it may be
remembered that it was the language used by Lo
cofocoism before the election, when its cue was to
stir up jealousy in the farmers' minds against tho
Iron-masters. To use their own favorite fornt of
expression, the Locofocos stow propose to erect
the Iron interest into a great monopoly, and to
"lay enormous taxes on the pour for the benefit of
the rich."
The Post, in the course of its article, further ex
' gases the hypocricy of its party on the Tariff noes
' tioa, and the base motives which actuate it in its
course. of legislation. Read the following t—
" The democratic party of the Union were al
ways willing to give to the iron and coal interests
whatever would satisfy them. They were struck
at reluctantly in 1846, and only boenutie it became
necessary by the foolish position which Pennsyl
vania was made to assume. We will not surren
der a principle ; but the difference between a spe
cific and ad valorem duty on an article whose in
trinsic value is always the same, does not seem to
us to involve a principle."
So then Locofocoism "was always willing to
give the Iron and Coal interests whatever would
satisfy them." What think the farmers ofthat?
lies not that party told them for four years past
just the contrary? Iles it not denounced the Iron
masters as arisVocrats, and the enemies and oppres
sors of the farmers ?' Yet all the tune it was will

yet it does so in the very . same sentence, for it
gives up the nd rolorvo principle of laying the du

and is willing to accede a speeige duty. This
"does not seen❑ to it to Involve a principle;" but
it is the min, if not the only principle in contro

and Locofocos. Mto Iron and Coal being always
of the same intrinsic value, they are just as much,
and no more so than Hats, Coats, Boots, a. hun
dred other articles, and the latter are as well enti

as much principle involved in protecting the one as
the other, and no more.—York I?.publican.
itir The. Globe editor declines giving any proof
for his assertion that we concussed with Mr. Speer
previous to the late election, on the ground that his
fears it would injure us! and because he has no

imity almost overwhelms us. The only return we
can make for it, is to offer our sincere regrets to ,
the Globe editor and his little clique, that they
were's° , unfortunate as to be driven clear through

Pennsylvania Congressional Dele
Great rejoiceings have been indulged I,y the
Locofoco press over the fact that the Pennsylvania
delegation in the next Congress will stand 15 Le
cofoeos to 9 Whigs. The Whigs have two or three
more than it was intended they should have when
the present apportionment was made by the gerry
mandering legislature of 1843. But even now, we
come within. a trifle of polling as many votes
our opponents. Their majority on the Congress
ional vote is only 6,132 according to their own
showing, in which they include the vote given for
all three of their candidates in one district where
they run that many. NOw, does any hottest Man
believe that a fair apportionment would give one
party 15 memoers to 9 for the other, with an ag
gregate majority of only 6,132 in the State? A
fair apportionment would of course give each par
ty a number of members corresponding to it; pop

entitled to least t 1 or 12 members. In fact,
• when ,we consider the iinpossibility of districting
the State without giving one or two Locofoco dis

concert, thus alludes to what must undoubtedly
be her best song: "The notable performance of
this evening was the Mountaineer's Song, which
is one of the ballads whiCh arc so popular a por
tion of her repertoire. It is by far the bes. of those
which she has given us. It hits instrinsie beauty,
in addition to its capacity to display her marvel
lous powers of voice, and were it well sung by an
ordinary mortal, could net fail to give pleasure to
all hearers. But from her lips it is a miracle of
beauty and execution. Its great point is a cadence
of three notes, which she prolongs, sustains and
diminishes with such marvelous sweetness and
delicacy, that the breath of•the hearer is held and
his ear strained to almost painful pleasure until
the phrase is concluded.
Her voice dies away until it seems, fit its aunt
sweetness, the far offsighing of an autumn breeze';
and when the spell-bound audience have • listened
a moment to be sure that the delightful suspense
is over, there is a general movement throughout
the house as each individual recovers at once self
oonscionsness mid breath. Her wonderful 'truth
of intonation is displayed in this performance even
more than in the Herdsman's Song. The' two
first notes are sustained, unaccompanied for a
length of time almost incredible, and. the last de
scends by a semitone' to a chord out of the key,
but intonation is as perfect and as firm as if
she were singing' in simple'thirds with accompa
niment and in full vhice."
The Sandwich Islands.
The continued! depopulation of the Sandwich
Islands is a singular fact in the histbry 01-man
kind. We con see how an inferior nation JIM):
become extinguished in the presence of one supe
rior in the arts of civilization. We can perceive
how interminable the petty wars among savages
may diminish their population. But the condition
of the Fluid wieh Islands presents none of these
circumstances. They are .civiliied themselves;
the teaching of the missionaries dhstroyed the
ravages of war, and even those of iiitettmeranee;
and yet in this peaceable and comparatively virtu
ous community, there is, erery year, a gradual' de
crease of inhabitants. Capt. Cook estimared their
number at 400,000. Mt, fifty years
later, at 150,000. The official census, the present
year, gives 84,105. During the post year, the
deaths were 4320; the births, 1422. At this rate
the race will become extinct before the next cen
tury opens. What there is in the physical condi
tion or constitution of. these Islanders that presents
•h a disproportionate excess of deaths over
