How Locofocos Treat Laborers.
The Canal Commissioners appear anz
ious to acquire an infamous notoriety.—
On the North Branch Canal they give the
good funds of the State to Gordon F. Ma
ton and JOU Laperte—two as bitter Lb
corocoti as any one need desire to see—
and these men in return furnish
their shaving shop ragged depreciated
small notes of other States. The Canal
officers contrary to law, compel the la
borers to take this filthy currency or go
without pay! This is the way Locofoco
Canal officers treat poor men on the
North Branch. They aro treating them
even worse on the Delaware Division.—
They have paid them for but one month's
work far More than a year past. Road
the following from the Easton Whig of
the 3d inst :
"We hear complaints from every quar
ter against the Canal Commissioners, for
their conduct on the Delaware Division
of the Pennsylvania canal. Whilst other
sections of the State aro receiving their
pay, and the Commissioners are prosecu
ting extensive experiments on the l'or
tage, and elsewhere, the Delaware ,Divi
sion, the most profitable section in the
State, is robbed and defrauded of the very
money which she pours into the public
treasury. . _ _
The hands who keep the canal in or
der have received but one month's pay
for more than a year past. If these gen
tlemen suppose that the peoplo along the
Delaware Division are to be forever com
pelled to wait till the last, they are mis
taken. We know that the appropriations
for the Delaware Division of our Canal
were largely increased the last session of
the Legislature. What has becdme of
the money? It is a disgrace to tho Com
monwealth that her laborers are deprived
of their honest earnings. If an individ
ual should pretend to carry on improve
ments and keep his lab?rors out of their
money for a year at a time, he would not
hold up his head in society. Why shall
the agents of the State be allowed so to
disgrace her 1 We say again, let this be
looked to. Let our laborers have their
rigts ; their ask no favor—nothing but their
hard earnings to be paid to them, in. order
that they may discharge the claims upon
them. We shall refer to this subject again
Unless the evil is remedied."
The object of the Canal Commission
ere is manifest. They destie to build up
4 floating debt unauthorized by the Leg- ,
lature and in the meantime allow their
servants to use the money appropriated for
repairs to fill their pockets or electioneer
for William 'Bigler. We have had enough
of this villany. It shall not be practiced
any longer with our consent. We demand
to know to what use the money has been
applied which the Legislature appropria
ted to keep up the Delaware Division of
the Canal 2 Why have the laborers not
been paid ? Who has the money just
ly belonging to them? Are Locofoco 'offi
cers not content with robbing the State?
Must they rob laborers also?
Why is it they Don't Answer I
For several weeks we have been seeking
an explanation of certain facts which aro
proved by the Records of the State. The
Locofoco press have not condescended to
give the necessary explanation, and briefly
present them again in the hope of meet
ing with better success. We wish to

$20,635 ?
4th. Why was it that so small an amount
was ever, under former Locofoco Adminis
trrtions, paid into the State Treasury as
tax on taxable commissions issued by the
Governor. In 1845 but $259 39 were
accounted for, although about one thou
sand Cointhissions were issued to Justices
of the Peace, on each of which the law
imposed a tax of $2l
sth. Why was it that, taking the years
1845—'46—'47—'48—'49 and '5O, over FIVE

A Million.
Few people have any conception of the
stupendous sum, which is designed by this
terns. Some writer having stated in an
nrtfelo heiided wllut becomes of all - the
pins? that million of billions of pins must
vanish, nobody can toll how or where, in
the course of a year, Euclid, a correspon
dent of the National Intelligencer, shows
up the absurdity of the assertion in the .
following style :
I think, sirs; the author tif that article
tho't little of what ho was saying, when
ho said that millions of billion's must vanish
in the course of a year Many pins, un
doubtedly, vanished every year; but any
mathematician will demonstrate to us that
a single billion has never yet been manu
factured. A billion according to Noah
Webster, is a million of millions—a nuni
ber, so vast, I say, that the human mind
has not the capacity to Comprehend it.—
A manufactory making one hundred per
minute, and kept in constant operation,
would only make fifty-two millions five
hundred and ninety-six thousand per an
num, and would require near twenty Vida
sand jeers, at the same ratio, without a
single moments cessation, to make the mini
ber called a billion.
To our mind, there appears to lie
hope of escape for the United States fi it
her present financial cmbarrasments, than
in a change of her present revenue stun,
As we are now situated, we appear to be
the mere shopkeepers of England for the
goods which she manufactures for us out
of our own materials. So long as this is
the case, so long must we, in our judge
ment, play this small second part, and our
coin be at her command.
To the gold of California, the United
States is only a sort of half-way house, is
its journey to England. For instance, the
last Chagres steamer brought the large smtl
of one million eight hundred thousand dol
lars ; but scarcely had she landed her pre
cious cargo before the steamship Africa
sailed with eight hundred and fifty-seven
thousand dollars of it, of that, which this
was to replace. Three days after—last
Friday—the City of Manehester sailed
with two hundred and thirty-eight thou
sand dollars ; and on Saturday, the Baltic
followCd with five hundred and thirty-eight
thousand more. Thus, in the space of a
week, we received $1,800,000 from Cali
fornia, and send $1,633,000 to England,
to say nothing about that carried away by
the packet ships for the store destination.
This is only a sngle instance in the opera
tion of the system.
How much better for all our people—ex
cept perhaps, a few importing merchants
and ship owners,—would it be, if we fos
tered our own manufactures, and thereby
create a HOME MA.RKE:r for Our produce,
and keep our coin in the country. It is
a well established principle in political e
conomy, that the cost of transportation
must always be borne by the producer;
hence the advantage that a maket at our
doors must have over a foreign one, three
or four thousand miles off.--Germantown
Is Col. Bigler an Abolitionist ?
Notwithstanding all the professions of
Col. Bigler and his friends, that ho is pro
slavery, and goes for slavery through thick
and thin, oven for its re-establishment in
the land of Penn, those who NC him as
sociated with and supported by such Free
Soil loaders as Wilmot & Co.. must suspect
his honesty. If Col. Bigler is not an
Abolitionist, why do his friends rely upon
the free-soil yeti; for his election 2 Why
do they boast that the free soil vote of
Bradford and the northern counties will go
for him and elect him 3
If Col. Bigler is not an Abolitionist, why
did he put himself under the control of
David Wilmot and his free soil friends,
when ho visited Bradford county ? Why
did he sit in convention and receive the at
tention and caresses of these men, whom
the locofoco organs denounce as "enemies
and traitors to their country ?', Why is
Col. Bigler in "sweet council" with such
men ? and why has he employed as editor
of the Union office, a man who formerly
edited Wilmot's free-soil paper in Bradford
county? If Col. Bigkr Is not an Aboli
tionist, why is it that his whole hopes of
election . rosts upon abolition votes? And he
as well as his friends all know unless he gets
the whole vote of his Abolition friends in the
North, ho will be beat at lea 4 TWENTY
not Wilmot publicly endorse him as their
accepted and avowed candidate ? He did.
[Pennsylvania. Telegraph,
The Democracy of the Locofoco
Judge it by their three last candidates
for the Presidency. Martin Van Buren
was a Federalist, and voted to deprive poor
men of the right to vote. James K. Polk
was a Federalist, anti his grandfather was
a tory in the Revolution. Lewis Cass
was an ancient Federalist, and even iu this
latter day exhibits his love for old Feder
al doctrines, at every opportunity. James
Buchanan, who is now , proposed as their
candidate for 1852, it is well known ; long
ago disclaimed the posSession of a single
drop of democratic blood. And this is
the party that arrogates to itself the title
of Democratic! For twelvo years they
have heeii fighting under Federal leaders,
and yet they call themselves .Democrats!
We think that it is about time for the
Farmers to begin to inquire after the
whereabouts of their great friend, the
• Tariff of 1846. Their great enemies the
Iron-masters, are pretty well used up; half
the Furnaces are out of blast--the Forgk•
hammers are stopped—the mining of • Coal
and Iron goes on very slowly, and the tolls
on the Public Works are pretty seriously
reduced; so far as those articles are concern
ed. The way to Europe, though,—that
great foreign Market which was to pay
them so splendidly for their grain and thntr,
is wide open —nearer at hand than Bier
throught the operations of steam; and
surely now they are reaping golden rewards
for their products. Providence has been
bountiful, and has blessed their labors
with au abundant harvest of "the finest of
wheat," heavy, 'round, ripe and rich; but
what has the policy of man done for them?
In 1847,, when the Irish famine and the
failure of continental European crops, caus
ed a demand for American breadstuffi4, how
our Locofoco friends boasted of their Tar
iff of 1846 ! Then wheat went up to $2
bushel, and flour to $9 and $lO a barrel;
and the Farmers were told to look at that,
and see what their true and only friends,
the Locofoeos, had done for them. There
were the fruits of the Tariff of 1846.
Well that Tariff is still in being—the Lo
cofoco majority in Congress, notwithstand
ing Mr. FiLtAiottE's urgent rdboirmacittla
tkms, refuse to permit their darling to be
touched; and what now are the prices of
grain ? Going down—down—down !
Wheat is 70 vents a btiltel—flour hardly
brings $4 a barrel on time; and there is no
prospect of a change for the better.—
Eyery successive arrival from Europe
brings intelligence like thiS :
.Thnerican flour D ECIANED six
pence per barrel—wheat had declined Ilea
pence per 70 lbs. since the sailing of the
Asia on the 16th of August !
All the while we are sending off Califor
nia gold to import into our country ? wherd
we already have so large a surplus, Euro
pean wheat and flour, in the shape. of Iron,
Cotton and Woollen G yetis, Silks, &c., &c.,
at the rate of Two Millions and a half of
Dollars a month ! Well dues the Harris
burg dlncrican exeiai
" How admirable is Locofoeo policy
It destroys our Home market—makes us
dependent on a foreign. market—although
that mallet is precarious, and has brought
American wheat and flour so low that the
American Farmer cannot sell his grain
there at tieing prices. The Farmers of
our country will learn their own interest
when they come out for a Protective Tar
iff—build up a safe and remunerating
Market :tt home, and thus ensure living
prices for their products. Whig policy
will promote the Farmers' interest. Lo
cofoeo p,,liey is now depressing it and has
redneed the price of grain to its present
low stionhcrd."
