Hut yon liavo boon exhorted to be lenient nnd compassionate, nnd in driving mo away to nflix no unnecessary dtsgraco upon inc. Sir. I reject oil such compassion. Yon cannot dis rnco mo. Scandal, falsehood nnd calumny have already done their worst. My shouldors have bornn tlm burden till it tils cosy upon them. You may bang me tipnslhu mob hung up the- individuals nt Vtcksbiirgs ynu may bum mo nt the sialic ne (hey did 'Mcintosh nt St. Louis', you may tar and feather mo, or throw mo into the Mississippi, as you havo ollcn threat ened 10 do j but you cannot disgrace mo. I. nnd I alone, can disgrnco myself, and the deepest of oil disgrnco would bo, nt n time liko this, to deny my iMastor by lorsaking Ills cause. Ho died for me, and I wcro most unworthy to bear his name, ebon Id I refuse, if need be, to die lor him. Again, you havo been told that I hnvc a family who ore dependent on me, nnd this lias been given ns a reason why I should bo driven off ns gently ns possible. It is true, Mr. Chairman, I nm n husband nnd a father, nud this it is that, adds to the bitter., est ingredient of tlio cup of Borrow I nm called to drink. I nm made to feel the wisdom of the Apostle's tulvicc, "It is bet ter not to marry." 1 know, Sir, Hint in this contest I stake not. my life only, but that of others also. I do not expect my wife will ever recover from Hie shock re ceived at tho awful scenes through which ehc was called to pass at St. Charles. And how was it tlio other night on my return to my home? 1 ound her driven into the garret through fear ol tho mob, who were prowling round my house. And Ecarcelv had I entered tho house cro my windows were broken by the brick-bats of the mob, and she so alarmed as to render it impossible for her to sleep or rest that night. I am hunted as n pnrtridgo on the mountain. I am pursued as a felon thro' your streets. To the guardian power of tho law I look in vain for that protection otrainst violence, which even tho vilest criminal may enjoy. Yet think not that I am unhappy. Think not that I regret the choice that I have made. While all around mo is violence and tumult, nl! is peace within. An approving conscience and the rewarding smilo of Uod are n lull recom pense for nil thnt I forego, and all that 1 endure. Yes, Sir, I enjoy a peaco which nothing can destroy ; I sleep sweetly and undisturbed, except when awakened by the brink-bats of tlio mob. No, Sir, I am not unhappy ; I have counted the cost, and si and prepared freely to offer up my nil in the service of Ood. Yes, Sir, I am fully aware of nil tho sacri fice I make, in here pledging mvself to continue this contest to the last. (Forgive these tears, 1 had not intended to shed them, nnd they ilow not for myself, but for others.) But I nm commanded to forsake father nnd mother, and wife nnd children for Jesos' sake, nnd as his professed disci ple I stand pledged to do it. Tho timo for lulfilling this pledge in my caso, it seems to me. has come. Sir, 1 dare not flee nwny from Alton; should I attempt it, I should foci that the angel of tho Lord, with his flaming sword, was pursuing me wherever I went. It is because I fear God, that I am not afraid of all who oppose me in this city. No. Sir, tho contest lias commenced here, nnd hero it must be finished. Before God nnd you all, I hero pledge myself to continue, if need be, till death; and if I fall my grave shall bo made in Alton. A DIVISION OF THE UNION. Some ten years ago, a division of the Union began to be cautiously agitated in tho South, by n few papers, who threw out their feelers, with a view of sounding pub lic opinion. The whole North rejected the proposition with vehemence and abhorrence. In the course of the time which has since elapsed, n fnmiliarity with a project which was at first only endured, has caused it to some extent, to be embraced at the South, whilo the North, from tho manner in which the discussion has been obtruded upon them, looks at it with far less of patriotic dread than nt first. Wo arc sorry to learn from tha N. Y. Gazette, that there is a party in organization nt tho South, who openly dc eirc nnd ndvocate a dissolution. Tho editor of that print is well qualified, by culture and n naturally acute nbservaiion, as well os from tho experience of a protracted Southern residence, to bo n credible wit iiess on tlio Ftibjcct. Ho says "There eeems to bo a degree of skepticism nmong our fellow citizens of tho North on this subject they nre unwilling to believe that there is nny considerable party in the Southern Stntes desirous of a separation nctuallv desirous of n separation. Know- in" as every rational and infoimed North crntr does know, how much mora disas tzous such an event would be to the South crn than the Northern section of tho rcpub lie, they treat almost with disdain, the idea thnt there is any real and serious wish nt tho South to bring such a calamity upon the country. We can tell tho skeptics that t he v don't know tho reality of that feeling bo well as those who have watched its progress by personal observation. The desire of disunion, tho spirit of disaffection to the federal compact is decplv rooted it is part of tho nullifier's creed, nnd with nearly all the leaders of that party the dis ruption of tho confederacy i3 n darling project. Wo knoAr it to bo so from per canal knowledge, obtained by long personal intercourse with the malcontents. Disun iondisconnection from the "cold-blooded nnd cowardly yankces" is tho hobby of the nullifies tho daily object of nil their ns piratinne; nnd the grent things they will lo when "Southern chivalry" cuts itself Joobq from nil connexion with northern meanness nnd nortfiarn pusillanimity is the liourly boast of every grado of southern politicians, from John C. Calhoun down to the taproom statesmen who discuss tho "forty bale" doctrine in country taverns. And these nro the patriots that Martin Van jniren is conciliating and on whom he pla ces his principal dopendenco for n ro elec tion to tho chief magistracy !" AnoniciM'.s of tub Ohio Valley. Gen. Uamuson, whoso talents ns n Stntes man and a General aro conceded to bo of tho first order, has long been known to possess litornry annulments of no ordinary character. Few men excel him in classi cal literature, nnd ho has n ready fund of knowledge, derived from ancient ns well as modem authors. Wo cro let to these remarks from having road with irroat satisfaction n recent dis course from his pen, on tho Aborigines of the Vnllcy of tho Ohio, delivered boloro tho Historical Society of Ohio, nnd pub lished nt their request. In this, the opinion entertained by Gov. Comjen, Dr. Fiiankmn, Gov. Clinton, nnd other, that tho Valley of the Ohio was conquered by the Six Nations, is ably and satisfactorily contested. American Antiquities nro becoming n matter of national interest, nnd our most lenrned men nro seeking to investigate them. This discourso of Gen. IIaiuuson presents us with fact9 that nro certainly very novel ns well ns interesting, nnd his deductions from them nre sound. Tho description of tho ruins on tho Miami, nnd the character und causes of the growth of tho forest trees found in them, is cxceeil. ingly well written, and iB of n high cast of thought. Tho whole discourse discovers grent ability, and few men in our cation could have handled the subject with greater skill. It will, unquestionably, mako a sen. salion in Europe among the learned thero, and will becomo a standard work in our own country. America may well bo proud of her sons, when, in the cabinet, tho field, nnd the closet, sho finus them devoted to her honor nnd interest. Wc recommend the discourse to our readers, hoping they may be fortunate enough to obtain n copy for perusal. Albany Daily Advertiser. HI GUT ABOUT. Our amusing friend of tho Toronto Pat. riot has thrown another somerset ; but liko the clown of the circus, in whatever atti tude he presents himself, he is equally en tertaining. His voice, is no longer for war; ho makes no farther calls on England for more troops, ilenty of iiockeis, nnd AM MUNITION OUT OF ALL RECK ONING. Ho will not fight tho Yankees nny longer, but gives up the contest in de spair, and only thinks of making good his retreat. Hear him: All our calculations on tho course of her Majesty's Whig ministers havo been astray. It will bo recollected that we predicted that ere n given day, the papers of lluino and Roebuck would bo seized by the Sec rctnry of Stnte, and themselves be state prisoners in tho Tower. Wt even went so far as to lay a wager of five dollars with a friend, that such would bo the case. Tho day went past, and Hume nnd Roebuck were still bullying on unscathed. So, whatevor tho Tories may have lost, it is plain THEY HAVE NOT LOST THEIR HONOR. Wo wish England may be able to say as much when she loses her North American colonies, for which wc now begin to despair; and wo should bo glad if Her Majesty would bo graciously pleased to send soma ol her steam-ships to convoy away her friends, that they may nt least be out of the reach of tho rifles, dag gers, nnd bowic knives of the murderous lurking dogs that arc turned loose upon them. Which of our public functionaries is safe? NOT ONE. Is Governor Ar tbur safe ? Is Chief Justico Robinson sale? Aro nny of tho Judges safe? Is Attorney General Hagcrman safe ? Is Sir Allan McNab safe? Is Colonel FitzGibbon safe? Is Mr. Prince safe? Is Dr. Thomas Rolph safe? Aro any of tho Exccutivo Council safe? Aro the grand jurors safe? Are the petit jurors safe ? Is Mr. Sheriff Jar vis safe? Is Mr. Kidd, tho gaoler, safe? Are the conductors of the loyal press safe ? Is any honest Irishman safe? Is any hon. est Scotchman safe? Is any honest Eng lishman safo ? In short, is nny "DAMNED TORY" safe? No, No, NO. NOT ONE IS SAFE. But Marshall Spring Bidwell is safe. Dr. John Rolph is safe. William Lyon Mackenzie is 6afe. The murderers of Colonel Moodie arc safe. The burners of Dr. Home's house aro safe. Indeed every horrid villain that has best helped to slain and pollute with dendlicst crime our little historic page, is SAFE- Safo quotha ayo HONORED. Wo call for no more troops no more artillery no more rockets no more ammunition no moro provin cial corp3 no more black regiments no more Indians. All wccall for now is plen ty of steam ships to carry away tho friends of Queen Victoria and her toppling crown to sorno terra incognita, whence, when Melbourne and Glenelg aro thrown upon tho shelf, they may be brought back to resuscitate her honor, refix her topsy turvy throne, put n straight jacket on mercy-run-mad, re-construct the defences of England's chief out-work, drive back the Yankee rev olutionary jacobins, re-establish order, maintain tho last refuge of civil and relig ious liberty, nnd perpctuato the renown of the British empire. Poor Upper Canada, what a state of tribulation alio is in ! But what is tho cause of all this despairing outcry? Why docs the Patriot groan so bitterly? Why simply, because the law officora of tho crown in England havo set aaido tho con viction of Thomas J. Sutherland as illegal. -Com, Adv. Pur.riT Eloo.uf.nck. Wo had, in com mou with n numerous and delighted audi enco, tho pleasure of hearing PnoFEsson Bascom, of Augusta College, deliver n Sermon at the Methodist Church in North Pearl street, on Tuesday evening. This gentleman was heralded to us by the enenniums of that grent man, Mr. Clay, (himself an Orator of tho first rank,) which declared him the greatest natural Orator he had ever heard. It is difficult to apply tho rules of criti cism to any thing very extraordinary in its character. Wo do not measure the Alps uy uno anu rule; out uy comparison with other elevations, or by roference to other great natural standards, such ns tho differ ences of ntmosphoric pressure. Professor Bascom is ono of theso wonders, and, although in many things lie might offend a critical and minute taste, yet he is so over powering in thought, illustration and an. gunge, that tho mind Is carried away by tho intensity of tho scopo over which ho enrries our attention. Probably thoro is no man living, who possesses such a bold and startling imagery, ond such a rich and copious supply of words. He is certainly a most extraordinary man, nnd worthy of iho admiration of thoj thousands who throng to hear him. Alb. Daily Advertiier. Pleasures op Association. It is strange what n wonderful power wo have in every one of our senses to awaken nseo. ciations ! Tho taslo of some well. flavored j apple, such as I used to cat in other days, will open upon mo a wholo volumo of boy hood. Sometimes, too, thoro aro tones in a flute, dofily discoursed upon, that orouso within my spirit a thousnnd recollections. They convoy mo back to bolter times, nnd I find myself hiding, with my you.ig play mates, nmong tho ripo strawberries of the meadow, listening tho whilo to tho "sweet divisions" of tho bob-o'lincoln, os it sang in the air! Little- paroxysms of puerility such moments nro; but I would not cx chnngo them for tho plaudits of the multi. tude, or tho voice of revelry. Something I had thon about my heart sotro light aerial influenco which has sinco toon lost among tho hollow pageantries of the world. I ndmiro that song of Hood's, in which, while recapitulating the memories of his boyhood, ho savs : " I remember, I remember The pine trees, dark nnd high ; I mcd to think llieir slender tops Wcro close against the sky ; It was n childish ignorance Out now 'lis little joy To know I'm further off from .'leaven Than when I was a boy !" In truth, if one wishes to prcsjrve the truo wisdom of Nature, ho must keep about him the childhood of his soul. That was n pleasant feature in the character of Chief Justice Marshall. I havo seen it related of him, that, not many years before his death, ho used to bo found in the neigh borhood of Richmond, Virginia, with his coat off, playing nt quoits with the youths of that region. He lacked no visdom, but ho know what was good for tlio spirit. Knickerbocker. FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 21. MAINE ELECTION. As we predicted last week, this state has gone for the Loco Focos, by a majority of 3330 votes, out of near ninety thousand votes polled. They havo also carried a majority of the Legislature, and probably olected six of the eight members of Con gress. Tho Whigs have been so long accus tomed to a continued series of triumphs from every quarter of the Union, that they must be content under one defeat. But there is nothing in this which should afford nny ground for discouragement. Last year wc had the State by a plurality of less than six hundred, and by an' actual majority of but one hundred and twenty ; now tho vote has increased from 08,000 to near 00,000, and in 6uch an immcn&o vote, with so unprecedented an increase within a year, a majority of four thousand is a mere baga telle. Tho Whigs of Maine, notwithstan ding they havo been unsuccessful, deserve tho thanks of tho friends of good govern ment throughout the Union. Thay have fought tho battle gallantly, and though defeated this timo, they have been defeated in a good cause, and one which mirt ulti mately triumph. Let them rise and pre pare for another conflict with that deter mined and indomitable spirit of the old Roman warriors, which made them more terrible after a defeat, than after a victory. Let them set their faces like steel against tho office holders and their bands of mcrce. narics, and let them still carry on the con test whenever and wherever an enemy appears in the field, and so surely is right is stronger than wrong so surely as the peoplo in their hearts prcler an administra tion of justice and purity to ono of corrup tion and profligacy, so sure will they ulti mately triumph. Below will be found complete returns of tho votes for Governor, except the scatter, ing and the votes of a few small towns nnd plantations in Washington county. TIiceo being added in, tho nggregato vote will hardly fall short of ninety thousand, which is somo nineteen thousand votes moro than were over thrown in that stato nt nny pro vious olcclion. The Whigs of Maine did wonders, and they deserve all credit and applause. Their vote will hardly fall short of forty three thousand. 183R. 1837.

User of tho morning of election, shows that this result was not altogether unexpected, nud nt the snmo tunc indicates tho unhal lowed means by which it has been brought about. Remcmler that Maine has a seaboard stretching along n com of liundieds of miles, lurgieaicr in extent than tlio seacoast of nny oilier slate in ilio Union. All along ibis coast llicro nre a body of public officers in Ilio employ nnd pay ofllie Genernl lioycrnmciii, all eager to susiiiin I he mlministrn. lion to elect John Fairfield, ilio Loco I'oco mem. hem of Congress, &c.

Tho exertions of tlio ndministrntion party havo been unparalleled. Money has been collected from nil quartern of iho Union this sido of iho Potomac, nnd expended, loo, with a liberal und unsparing hand. Tlio administration has dono every thing that could bo donu to sustain itself, if it is not sustained, It will bo because- tho free, iho intelligent, tlio unbouglit, ilio unhuynblo freemen of Muino nro stronger llian tho supporters of tlio administration even lliousli nided bv tlio Executive, tlio National Treasury, mid l ho liberal contributions of a host of Ilio salaried friends of tlio udministration in differ ent sections of iho Union.

Do assured wc have done our duly, nnd our whole duty if we nro coii(ueied, it will not bo because wo havo not dono our dutv to ourselves, to vou. to our country. Mako no calculations upon tlio result of Ilio election. Wait until tlio result is known. II wo conquer now, wo conquer ngain.

Principles, Liberia, Laws. Peace. Union vn nro contend. ing for, und as long us God gives us the liberty of speech, the freedom of thought, nnd the freedom of tho Press, we shall neyer grow weary in well doing. Alluding to the result of this election, tho N. Y. Courier holds tho following language. The Loco Focos havo elected their Gov ernor in Mnino by a majority of about 4,000 votes. Somewhere near one-fifth of the rccont Whig majority for Governor Dud ley in North Carolina. It is gratifying to reflect that though tho Stato is lost, it has not been through the neglect of our friends. Thoro has been a large incrcaso of tho Whig vote. Whatever the power of the People could do against tho Powor of tho Government has been nobly done. But a single disaster in a long scries of brilliant victories was naturally to havo been ex pected. It is the fortune of war. Many reverses must intervene between tho Sar atoga and tho Yorktown of every revolu tionary struggle. The Whigs of Maine have entitled themselves to tho lasting gratitude of their brethren throughout the country. Nover was a field more gallant ly contested. Never was a noble effort more deserving ol a brilliant triumph. But they have been overwhelmed by superior numbers. The Executive has proved loo strong for tho people. The result, however, will only stimulate tho Whigs of other states to ronewed exer tions. It will heal disensions bring about more cordial co-operation do away with all petty jealousies, and animosities and infuse into the members of the Whig party throughout the Union, that unanimity of action which is indispensable to ultimate success. In this point of view, we may yet derive important advantages from the reverse in Maine. Where is ths Wmo who will now fail to deposito his vote in the ballot box ? Whoro is tho Wmo who will suffer any personal disappointment or personal prejudice to interfere with the paramount duty which he owes to his coun. try? This reverse will do more than a score of victories to combine and concen trate tho Whig strength. It will prevent any diversion or distraction in our ranks. It will produce that universal harmony of action and effort, without which wo might have been for years engaged in an unavail ing struggle. All minor questions will be merged in the great issue before the coun try "Shall tlio will of the people bo the law of the land, or shall we be governed by Exccutivo edicts in spite of tho lamenta tions of the peoplo?" NEW YORK. The convention which assembled at Uti- ca on Wednesday week for the purpose of nominating candidates for Governor and Lieutenant Governor of the Stato of New York, havo agreed upon William II. Se ward of Cayuga as tho candidato for Gov ernor, and Lutheii Bradisii as the candi dato for Lieutenant Governor. These nominations seem to be every where roceiv. cd with the most hearty approbation and applause. Mr. beward is deservedly a f rcat favorite all over the State, and espe cially in the western portion of it, where lio tho strong-holds of tho Whigs. In 1832, when a candidate for Governor, ho received tho largest vote ovor polled against tho regency. Mr. Bradish is also a popular man. Ho was one of the three candidates in tho convention for Governor, and will add much strength to tho ticket. Tho Regency party havo again ro-nomi-nated Marcy and Tracy, the prcsont in cumbents, as Governor and Lieutenant Governor. Col. Thomas A. Tomlinson of Essex county has been nominated for Congress by our friends in the Congressional District composed of Clinton, Essex and Warren counties. This is a most excellent solec lion, and with proper exertions will bo crowned by a signal triumph. The Dis. trict gave 3,719 Whig to 3,478 Regency votes last fall, and can do hotter now. Let our friends rcsolvo thnt they will havo a Whig Congressman this timo. They have allowed themselves lo bo beaten by 50 or GO votes too often. Proper organization and strenuous efforts aro all that is needed, Clinton Countv. Tho Whigs of Clin, ton County havo nominated Andrew Moore, for Assembly, and Horace Boardman, for County Clerk. Tho Loco Foco of the same county have nominated Abijah North, for Assembly, and Smith Mcado for County Clerk, SIX DAYS LATER rnoM ENGLAND. Wo had on Friday two arrivals from England. Tho first, tho London packet ship Wellington, Capt. Cjiadwiok, which sailed from Portsmouth, on the 14th ultimo, and brings us London papers to tho 13th, containing Liverpool advices of tho 11th. Tho second, the Liverpool packet ship U, Slates, Capt. Holdrege, which sailed on the 9th. As in theso days, the politics of Europe afford but little matter of much interest here, wo first direct our nttontion to tho stato of the London money and Liverpool cotton market. The former does not appear to have undergone any very mate rial variation, and the latter, is probably as fnvorablo as the most sanguine anticipated But tho most striking fcaturo in the present accounts is, tho fears expressed of a serious deficiency in the crop of grain in England. Our readers may depend upon it, that should tho apprehensions entertained on this head bo verified, it will materially affect the monetary nnd mercantile opera tions of that country. Tho proceedings of the Earl of Durham in Canada havo occupied much of tho time of the British parliament. His ordinance, by which thirteen of tho persons implicated in tho rebellion or in tho attempts to invade tho provinces, were directed to bo sent to Bermuda, has been strongly assailed. The objections urged against it ore, that the individuals in question had not previously been tried and convicted by a jury. Lord Brougham has brought a Bill into the House of Lords declaring such measures arc not authorized by the powers confided to the Earl of Durham, and for indemnify" ing thoso who havo issued or acted under it. It had passed to a second reading, and apparently with the consent of ministers. However praiseworthy this scrupulous re gard may be to a strict observance of the principles which regulate the administration of justice, we cannot but fear that if carried out, to 6uch extent, towards the vagabonds who havo proceeded from the U. StateB and interfered in the difficulties between tho parent country and her Colony, it will be attended with the worst effects to the pacification of the troubles on the frontier. Tho Paris papers are chiefly occupied with the questions between Holland and Belgium, the demand made by France that Louis Bonaparte should bo expelled from the Swiss Territory, and the attempt of tho Charge d' Affaires of Holland to obtain possession of Documents from the French Department of State. Tho last mentioned personage has been recalled by his Govern, ment. There is very little danger that tho affairs of Holland and Belgium will disturb tlio peace of Europe, and although the members of the Diet of the Swiss Confed. eracy show an anxious desire to protect one, whom they havo admitted to the rights of citizenship, they will probably end in satisfying the wishes of tho French Gov ernment in some way or other. The accounts from Spain aro of the usual undecided character. JV. Y. Courier and Enquirer. AN INTERESTING PIG. The sale of ardent spirits in less quantity than fifteen gallons, is prohibited by law in Massachusetts. A few days sinco a ehrewd Yankee at Dedham, resolving to treat his friends and make a penny, in defiance of tho law, hit upon tho following expedient. He made application to the Selectmen for license to exhibit a striped pig during the parado day, which was granted. Ho accordingly procured a pig, and with a brush painted some stripes on his back, and had a tent erected on the field, with duo notice on the exterior, that a striped pig was to bo seen within: prico of admission, six and a quarter cents. The rate being so low, numerous visitors were induced to call on his swinish majesty, and every ono on coming out appeared highly gratified with the kind nnd courteous rccep. lion he met with from the keeper of the rcmarkablo pig. for each comer was treated to a glass of brandy and water, or gin, or whatever liquor ho might prefer, without any extra charge, Somo wcro so pleased that they wcro induced to take a second look at the animal, and were as kindly and liberally treated as at their first visit. At tho last accounts iho exhibitor was driving a brisk business, and was likely to mako a profitable day's job in exhibiting his "strip ed pig," while not a few had looked at tho interesting little gruntcr so often and so intently, that they could hardly perceive the stripes ! CANADA. Our dates from Montreal are to Wcdncs day morning. The Canadian newspapers, of nil political opinions, nro unanimous in thinking that tho half smothered rebellion will shortly break out in tho Province with renewed vigor. H is stated, and wo have tin doubt of its truth, that n secret organi zation exists throughout the wholo Prov inces, tho members of which nro pledged to rise simultaneously. Somo of tha papors go tho length of asserting that tho lime has bcon fixed. Lot them mako n rally nnd keep a position un their awn ground, nnd men, money, arms and ammunition will not bo wanting. A detachment of troops wa sent from Montreal to Lnprario on Sunday, in connc quence of a suspicion that a design was on foot to bum tho barracks at that place. Some barracks, it appears, have been burn ed in Upper Canada. This Province ap pears to bo even in n worse stato than tho Lower, as all accounts agree in stating.--Sentinel, Buffalo, Sept. 12.

By command of ALEXANDER MACOMB. Tho editor of tho Back-woodsman, an administration paper published at Grafton, Illinois, has, it appears, been pretty severe, ly taken to task by some of his party, for omitting to vote the entire locofoco ticket at tho late election. After long silenco under their abuse, ho has been compelled to give his reasons for so doing. We doubt if the party will not consider the explana lion deeper treason against their cause than tho defection that called it forth. Hear how Mr. Russel explains: "On the day of election wo were in Grafton. On passing tho two grocesies of this town, we saw a crowd around them, and learnt that most of our candidates, if not all but one, had given an unlimited order to treat their friends to all they might call for during tho day. Votors were all day calling for this and that candi date's liquor, drinking only at the expense of those for whom they voted. Wo have not a word to say against tha owners of theso groceries, nor do we intend at this time, to agitate the question ;of treating at elections. It is enough that wo arc conscientiously opposed to the practice. Wc went to the polls, took a democratic ticket, and indignantly drawing a pen over the names of all who had given orders to treat their friends, put a vote in the ballot box wilh n single name, that of 'Thomai Carlin, for governor. Our ticket was for warded to Carollton, accompanied with re. t marks well calculated to excite hostility against us." Such is the morality of locofocoism. Later from Illinois.
