Sad Disaster to the made steamship Great
It is with extreme iegret that we have to
announce that, this notile vessel has met with
another disaster onlbei last outward passage
from Liverpool to &mil:York, and one which,
we fear, may disable : lie:. from ever again
crossing the Atlantic.
She left thii port ori; the morning of the
22d ult, taking 185 iiisssengers, . about 60
tons of valuable fine *ids as freight, and
about the same metusuliement of passengers
luggage. She took] hei departure, witnessed
by a large coneounie of spectators, , amid the
cheers of congregated iliousands and roar of
artillery.. After clearing the Bell buoy, she
bore- away for the qui, of Man; with the in
tention of running thqnorth about, passage
between the Isle ofiMitn and Ireland.
The morning was beautiful, he wind was •
fair, the ship was in e*cellent trim, and she
had abundant pram* of "a pleasant and
rapid passage, and Ithat, too, under an able
and experienced captain, who had moat suc
cessfully, for years; tniiigated the Atlantic
Ocean, to the satisfac4on of his passengers,
the commercial puhlid; and the company by
whom he was employed.
For about ten bOuni the noble palace of
iron,the largest perhapsthat tenants the deep,
was propelled by steatri'and wind at the rate of
12 or 13 knots an limit. In fact it may be
said that she had 4erkun herself. At 4 or
5 o'clock, P. M. the Oland was seen dis
tinctly viable - on the atbbard bow. Shortly
_after it set in to rain, alid the wind increased,
the ship making eircellent progress, and the
passengers uncomMorily delighted with the
vessel and her admiraak qualities as a sea
boat. - r
Night then closed its, dafk and wet, and
the wind graduall fi4lihened to a half gale.
The log was repeatA,r taken. The weath
er was thick and foggi, and the ship passed
the Calf lights before dark, ' without being
able to distinguish the ken house at that sta
tion. About half pasenine o'clock at night,
the passengers were stgrtled by an extraordi

Capt. laxton, who was.sent by the direc

" Shou ti the weather continue as itis, or

chors are `being placed in convenient situa

it is hoped that she may be drawn into deep

The foilowing is a summary of the amend

" The Delegates of the People in Con

bors ih ati amended Constitution of fourteen
Jirticles,ilo be considered together for your
adoption. I They have presented for your
separate consideration, it section relating to
suffrage, 'equally applicable to the present
and prw4sed constitution.
In the... fourteen articles, they have, re
organizO the legislature ; established more
limited districts for the election of members
of that body, and wholly separated it from
the exercise of judichil power. The most
importan state officers have been made
elective b. the people of the state : and most
of the officers of cities, towns, and counties,
are nuidelelective by the votes of the locali
ty theylrve. They have abolished a host
of usele offices. They have sought at
once to reduce and decentralize the patron
age of tit Executive government. 'They
have ren d red inviolate the funds devoted to
education. .After repeated failures in the
legislature, they have previded a Judicial
System aidequate to the wants of a free peo
ple, rapidly increasing in ens, culture, com
merce at.d population.. They have made
provisions , /kr the payment of the whole
State Debt, and the completion of the pub
lie works begun. While that debt is in the
progress bfi payment, they have provided a
lalge contribution. from the canal revenues
toward the current expenses of the state, and
sufficient for that purpose when the state
debt shall have been paid ; and have plated
strong saferards ag ainst the recurrence of
n uprovidant expenditure of , the
public mney. They have agreed 'on' im
portant prAsions in relation to the mode of
creating Intorporations, and the liability .of
their metebers ;, and have sought to render
the business of banking more safe and res 7

TO a UR 'SUBSCRIBERS.
There selms.to be an impression among
some of ourisubscribers, that the Advocate
will be furhisbed them at one &bar per
-year, without regard to the time of payment.
By-looking at the terms on our first page it
.will be seed] that we offer the paper at ",one
dollar a year' in advance. One dollar fifty,
if not paid Within three months, and if delay=
ed until afhir the expiration of the year, bit)
dollars will he exacted." We cainot, these : :

tion from t4se 'who have taken from the first
number. Our terms are very low, and will
be rigidly Ohered to. -
Our wares thankS are due our patrons
for the veryiliberal Patronage they have giv
en us, and for the prompt payments made.
resits of Election in our State, are
truly to be deplored by every honest Demo
crat. • Thai we should have elected but 6
out of 24 Congressmen, is indeed mortifying,
—that the Whigs should have a majority in
both branches of our Le'islature, is no less
so. While;we look with earnest regret upon
the disustroits results, we should endeavor to
ascertain their true causes, , and provide
against their future occurrence. This can
not be done] by casting personal reflections.
No; we sin - Mid now exert ourselves to bring
about morel harmony and a closer union of
our , strength:. We still retain, power -suffi
cleat,. if properly and energetically exerted,
to vanquish! our common enemy, one year
from this time. Let us not be discouraged,
but cast altout and discover wherein our
ranks can lie strengthened. If the revenue
question isi•really the cause of our present
overthrow, let us endeavor to have it so ar
ranged, thai the Democracy of the Keystone
State shall m agreed to come up, " rank
and - file," a the next campaign, and remove
the stain ivhich hapless disaffection 4as
stamped upon our party. The Harrishtirg
Argus, (a s and Democratic paper,) upon
the subject of the causes of so :general de
feat, this fap, very appropriately remarl4:
" The result of the election on the 13th
inst., is most, disastrous to the democratic
party. Wtt cannot, as in times past, refer
with pride,ito the "Star of the East,"
" the Star of the West," and "the Star of
the North.' Even their lustre has been
dimmed, flail we are almost left without one
sunup spot lin this -old Democratic Com
monwealth to afford us grounds for congrat
To- writ:kite this overwhelming defeat to
the storm . which prevailed on the day of the
election, is Only ruisleadity , e the public" mind
at a distanc . Any one wlocalmly.survey
ed the battle-field previous- to the conflict,
with a dela*. to arrive at the truth, must be
convinced that the result sprung from caus
es over which the weather had no control,
and that, if%the day had been fair, the vic
tory of out opponents would have been
scarcely less complete than it now is. The
dissatisfactibu and apathy which prevailed
in tharanki:and file of the party, gave no
hopes for a'iiifferent result.
One of the main causes of our defeat
may be justly attributed to the Tariff ques
tion. The mass of the people of Pennsyl
vania are uddoubtedly wedded to the princi
ple of protecting our domestic industry.—
They had been assured during the canvass
of 1844 that the election of the democratic
candidate Or the Presidency would not dis
turb the Ttiriff act of 1842, and that they
would continue to enjoy the benefits which
that measure was scattering , broadcast over
the state. Out the act of 1846 violated the
assurances kiven in 1844. Those who ap
preciate the benefits of the act of 1842,
thought that they perceived in the present
bill the extitiguishment of their hopes for a
continuancd of that prosperity which Was
daily flowing from the development of our
vast interntil resources. They- felt them
selves not only aggrieved but deceived, and
although n*st of the leaders of the party
"jumped Jitu Crow" on the question, they
refused to jain in the gyration. The con
sequence, all must have been foreseen, iit a
whig victory, and a diminished majority in
every demotratic county. 1
As it regards the election of Canal Cam
missioner,.other causes combined to - pro
duce, the Math. Although the democratic
candidate of as a gentleman of acknowledg
ed talents, and had rendered \the state soiree
,servic,e, his #election, under the circumstan

/ Whatever perspective glory there may be
in a hostile meeting of two armies—in the
display of long lines of troops, the roar of
artillery, the shouts of men, and the world
forgetting charge whateverglory there may
be in hauling down of an enemy's colors,
and fastening to foreign hal-yards the:beau
tiful stars and, stripes, there is still a fearful
alloy, a bloody price for it. The "glorious
hazard," which nerves every heart at the
onset, to some poor fellows, soon becomes a
bloody certainty. Many a buoyaht heart
and strong arm is stricken down in the bud
of hope, and airy castles which he had
built for himself,fade away, as the life blood
gurgles from his mangled body. A surgeon
in the V. S. Army, writing to a friend, du
ring the battle at Monterey, says : " The
volunteer regiments have suffered dreadful
ly ; the Tennessee Regiment having over
140 killed and wounded, and the others in
like proportion. The Palo Alto and Rese
ca de la Palma were child's play to these
dreadful battles. All the destruction occur
red in the city by fire from the batteries and•
houses in attempting to storm the former;
their grape and musketry'mowing us down .
like grass. •I trust' in God I may never
again witness such seenes'of carnage and
blood. I was fired upon in the field while
dressing the wounded, and in the midst of
my dreadful duties, report was brought that
a body of Mexican lancers were charging
down upon us; fortunately they were re
pulsed by some volunteers. These latter
behaved very well."•
A rumor reached us several days since
in a Philadelphia paper, that the President
had made a requisition on Gov. Shunk for
six regiments of volunteers, to march imme
diftely for the seat of wow. The Democrat
ic Union of Oct. 211-contradicts the rumor.
Up to that time no such order had been re
ceived by the Executive. We see no alter
native but that the chivalrous.sons of Penn
sylvania will have to " waist a little longer,"
or go on their own hook.
Death of John L. Webb, Esq
We regret to learn that this gentleman
died suddenly at his residence in Smithfield,
Bradford co., on Saturday the Ilthiost.—
Mr. W. was successful candidate for the
Legislature at . the late election, and scarce.
ly was the result of his elelpa known, ere
we nre called upon to chripitcle his sudden
departure. 1-low fickle is the tenure of life.
The election for Directors of the N. Y.
& Erie Railroad took place at New Ybrk,
last week. The old board were re-chosen
for the ensuing year.
SANDWICH ISLANDS.—The American Mis
sionaries deserve great praise for their labcirs
in the Sandwich Islands, particularly inthe
progress of their free schools. Among the
exercises we perceive a dialogue of Roderic
Dhu, delivered by Win. C. Lamalilo. A
scene from the will by Lot Karnchtunelia,
Moses Kekuaiwa and Alexander Lihaliba.
It is but a few years since they were all
savages, running wild. Now they have
learning, religion and laws ; trades and pro-
Tessions, and all from the labors and efforts
of American Missionaries.
