log men, is this reasonable and right? Can
we contend against the extravagance, corrup

ism with any rational hope of success if the
best patronage of our party is given to the en
emy It is absurd to attempt it. And shall
the political tories who thus give "material
aid and comfort" to our political foes pass
longer unnoticed ? They shall not. If the
toriea of the Revolution deserved universal de.
testation and abhorance and received it at the
hands of indignant patriots; surely we owe it to
ourself. our party and justice to withhold our
countenance and support from those men. who
strengthen the arms of our enemies, and we
will discharge the obligation. No will hence
forth support no man for office who withholds
his patronage from the papers of our party
and bestows it on those of tho Locofoco organs
nor will we per mit our columns to be used to
promote business interests of such men, unless
paid for it.

that we have adopted the above as our line of

A Correction.
We heard it intimated some time ago that
Mr. Wigton, our worthy and faithful representa
tive at Harrisburg last winter, declined a re
election, or did not want to be re-elected, or
something to that amount. As these repre
sentations were made to us by professed friends
of Mr. Wigton, and supporters of our party,
we felt puzzled, especially as Mr. Wigton's al
most constant absence from town on business
prevented our getting an opportunity of speak
ing to him on the subject. More recently,
however, we have seen and conversed with in
telligent members of the Peoples' Party from
nearly all parts of the county except the north
ern townships, and we find that it is well un
derstood that Mr. Wigton will again be a can
didate and is expected to be thecandidate; and
a number of his most intimate personal friends
have assured us that such is the fact. Indeed,
we did not ascertain, from the whole range of
our inquiries that there will be any other man
put forward by the people to contest the nomi
nation with Mr. Wigton. The Locofocos, it is
well known, carefully as they try to conceal it,
will run a renegade from our ranks against
him ; and it is highly probable that from that
quarter have started the intimations referred
to at the beginning of this article. But, be
this as it may, one thing is certain, there is no
truth in the story about Mr. Wigton's declining
to be a candidate, and none of our readers or
the voters of the county need be deceived by it.
By these remarks we do not Mean to ex
press any decided preference for Ur. Wigton
over other msn of good business qualifications
and of acknowledged political ittsgtity and
private worth. We merely wish to correct a
mistake, or arrest a falsehood calculated to mis
lead unsuspecting voters, and perhap's encour
false hopes iu the minds of those who have
other preferences, and thus cause unnecessary
confusion in our nominating Convention which
is likely to be severely exercised by the hotly
contested claims of an unprecidented number
of aspirants for the other offices.
Virginia Election.
The elections held in Virginia last Friday,
shows considerable gains for the Opposition.—

A special despatch received at the American
office from the office of the Richmond Whig,
says that the returns from 112 counties give

In these there are considerable gains for Mr.
