Vc have t'.os W Inst, the vjjicial programme of tho manner in which tho office-holders 'are to conduct their campaign. Amos Kendall, in tho eecond number of tho Extra Globe, has issued tho following ovdets to the legions in the pay of the President : now gof..s the noim" "The Kcdtral party a.c now in the condition of the French at the crisis of tho battle of Waterloo. They have sp"nt their sVrengh in terrific assaults upon the firm ranks of nomocracy, and now, exhausted with their mighty efforts, caii scarcely bo brought to renew tho action. DEMOCRATS, sow is the moment to charge! Democratic editor, abandon your defensive war fare, and charge home upos the esi'.mv! Democratic candidates and orators, be not kept j on the defence by the numberless uusustnitied accu sation of the adversary, but homily charge crov : iiim his own want of piinciple, and base means of1 electioneering.

AND REFUSING TO DISCLOSE HIS PRINCIPLES TO THE PEOPLE WHOSE SUFFRAGES HE ASICS. ONE DECISIVE CHARGE ALONG THE WHOLE DEMOCRATIC LINE, and theenemv will be seen flying in every way.liko the shattered squadrons of Napoleon beforo the troops of Wellington. Al ready they begin to hear tho cannon of Iiulow thun dering on their ri'jlit, and "have himself wao can," is ready to leap from their tongues." Very well ! "Charge" as soon as you please. The Whigs arc ready for you. Come on with your war cry of "the srotLs, the pi-oils," and the Wmos, unfurling tho national banner with nil its stars and 6tripcs, appeal to "Gon ana their countuv," and give that as their watch word and reply. Who fears your rnanaces ! Who is intimidated by this blustering arrogance! Who shrinks from an army of " hirelings" thus mustered in the field by a captain who has been bought and sold until the children of tho land can tell the exact number of the pieces of til ves which were considered as a full equivalent for all his talents, patriotism and honor ! Veri ly, this country has indued fallen from its high estate when it is told to tremble at the procla mation of the most successful mendicant of mod em times ! But let us tal:e this terrific document as it oc fcurs in its broken thunder?. The Whigs " arc now in tho condition of the French at the crisis of the battle of Waterloo," pays the Captain General of tho army of tho Spoils! You have mistaken our position Captain. If thero is any parallel at all between the French and the Whigs, it is rather in the resem blance which they exhibit to the army of Na poleon drawn up lo resist the charge of the Mamei.i'ke horse. Do you remember how tho Mamelukes recoiled from tho solid ranks of tho infantry until in their despair they absolute ly reined ba:k their horses to hick against their bayonets! Tho sands of Egypt drank deep that day, of tho blood of tho runted "chargers." And, in your military figure, wo would advise you to draw off with your ".Mamelukes" and reck shelter in tho deserts of Arabia. You may think yourself the " Unlaw" or tho Wellington of the allied powers, and probably a similarity of purpose, that of upholding the divine right of Kinp., may have suggested to you tho compari- ron, but you are destined to a speedy discovery tjf your error. The People of Franco were ir resistible, and tho pooplo of America will be no less victorious. "Demoohats, now is tho moment to charge." Do yon hoar that, "Democratic editors," "Dem ocratic candidates" and "Democratic orators!" Wc say again, do you hoar that ! The word is given to juu, and not to thw People. It is you uhohavoto charge, (not in your aenntomtd Mode f extra charges for no unrvico) hut to charge after tho manner of Wellington ! The J)u!;c of Wellington is still ulivc.and would it not ho a jjoodiy right to that old captain to behold this army of oflico holders in martial array, marching up in thrco grand divisions ! Tho first division is composed of "Uwrutk Pdi tor.s" What nation can stand before such a column! Hero they como. "By companies tnko caro to form a solid column of attack upon tho centre company, tho right in front, tho left thrown Lank." Sltade of TaktalT, whore nro yc, nnd your noblo regiment that was not march ed through Coventry 1 Come up to tho rescue, for tho first division has focmen worthy of your steel I Mako room for the second division, "Demo cratic candidates 1" by companies, on your right into line, wheel! There stand tho column all drawn up ! hook at it ; is it not awful to be hold it ! People of America, are you not palsied at tho sight! Look at it, from tho General down to the fourth corporal ! Surrender your consti tution and laws, atiJ liberties ; for why contend against such an array! Hut, clear the front ! here comes up tho third and last division. TIicko arc tho "Democratic orators," who arc BOLDLY TO CHARGE up. on" General Harrison, "his own want of princi. ile, and base moans of electioneering." And is that what tho orators have to do! Yes, that, and a little more. They arc to "charge" upon a " Dumb Idol," "picturcc," "caricatures," "gath ering!9," "carousals and paraphonalia 1" Rath- or windy work, gentlemen, that, which your cap. tain has cut out for you ; but ho best knows your strength, and has assigned to tho task of at tacking "pictures." Come on, then, and oven the pictures and caricatures will stand their ground against you. Let us sec what the triple alliance has ?to2 to perform. It is directed to "leave tho miMtauy achievements" of General Harrison "to iwss roil what they aue woitTH." Most excellent caution this, and wc hope it will ho remembered Take commit Whigs,vhosc destructionhasbcen so fearfully threatened, for behold, even Amos Kendall publicly admits that General Harrison's military reputation is impregnable, and above re proach. What will now become of those puny assailants of that gallant Foldier, who have call ed Ihtri on a "roward," au "old grannv," and a "petticoat hero" ! Amos Kendall tells the whole pack to shut their mouths upon that sub joct, and letlhu "military achievements pasa for what they are worth." And what are they wokth ! They are worth a nation's gratitude and a people's praise. They saved thousands of helpless families from the tomahawk and scalp ing knife ; they recovered a lost State, and bro't her back as a component part of this confederacy ; they shed honor upon the American name, pro tcction upon the American citizen, and glory upon the Republic. They arc worth a thousand fold all that the legion of office-holders have done, can do, or will do for the public good. That's what they are worth, and it is very well for this patriotic army of "Democratic editors, candidates and orators" to pass them by. They are summoned to a more congenial task. They are told to "charge upon him his ancient Feder alism :" and docs not tho grand army cut a pretty figure in charging upon what ha3 no existence ! Washington gave Harrison.his first commission ; Wayne made him his aid ; Jefit.i:son, tho first Republican of the world, made him a Governor ; Madison commissioned him a General; Monroe was his fast friend, and the Congress of the United States voted him the public thanks ! What sort of I-ederalisiu do you call that! If Van Huron could show such testimonials of his devotion to the country, people might begin to talk about his "democracy ;" but in lieu thereof, the Extra Globe gives a life of Van liuren, writ- ten by a squad of New York members of Con gross ; and, in commenting upon the biography, Mr. Kendall says that Mr. Van Huron has " but one life," and ho might have added "and that a very bad one," for which ho may thank h friends. They arc also to charge him with approving a law for selling white men for debt. Wonderful What sort of a debt was it ! It wag a debt which some folks thought tho offenders ought to han" for ; others thought they ought to be put in the Penitentiary for ; and others again who were opposed to such severe punishments for offences of such grade, were in favor of soiling tho scr- MY NAME FROM THE NOTTINGHAM L1STJ CAN DO THAT WORK NO MORE 1 1" Loco Aico'ism stood aghast, but was still tuoro astonished when bo proceeded to address the meeting. He told them that he was no longer of them that ho had been rcpctitiitq in sackcloth and ashes for past party sins that tho country wn on tho verge of rum, and could c saved only by an immediate political regenera'ion that Old Tip was now its only hope, and that he was a Harrison man, from that tinio forth I Ho then call ed upon all present who vMucd the liberties of America who were too independent nnd free-souldcd to stoop any longer, beneath the tircssuro of federal power, nnd wbo felt it to bo their duty to transmit to posterity tho glorious legacy they hnd received from their fathers, to "come out from among tho foul party," nnd range llicmselves under the Harrison Ilanncr. As soon as ho had finished speaking, says the Gazette, SIXTY MEN stepped forth i and placing himself at tho head of his band of regenerates, the whole turned their bncks upon their lato political associates, nnd marched in solid column over to tho Whig meeting, where they wero received with open arms! This is an incident worth telling. Its the way the West docs things, and ttic Last will fmd bcr a tnodd worth following, vices of the convicted, for a limited tunc, so that they could work out the penalty of lawy and not be shut up in a prison where they could not work and would bo a constant tax upon the counties in which the oflbnecs were committed. Was it not a most cruel offence in Harrison to vote for th mildest course. And yet there is scarcely a State in the Union, that has not a statute for scl ling vagrants and persons who have no ostensi ble mode of living ; and the State of Kentucky has "c von gone to the length of selling, "for a limited time," hor Penitentiary, convicts and all If there was a law for selling leg-treasurers for the money they steal from tho people, no doubt there arc some who would think it an intolerable greviance. Failing in thi3 "charge," they arc to charge him with being an "abolitionist ;" and: here, too, they have to charge in tho very face of facts that contradict them. Gen. Harrison cm phatically denounces the abolitionists, and the abolitionists emphatically denounce him. Gon Harrison has u rittcn against them, has spoken against them, and has voted against them. lie voted against the Missouri Restriction, and Van Huron was in favor of it. Van Huron also voted for giving to free negroes tho right of voting at all elections. Now, come on gentlemen, and "charge;" and where will Mr. Van Huron bo while you arc about it! They aro lastly to "charge" him with "refusing to disclose hisprin ciples to the people whoso suffrage ho asks 3" And does that end tho string ! Why, gentle men, the people know his'opinions upon all tho political subjects of the day. Read his letters to I larmar Denny, to Shorrod Williams, to Thomas Sloo.to tho Louisville Whig Committee, to Mr. James Lyons, of Virginia ; read his speeches in Congress, his Vincenncs and Cheviot speeches', and tiicrc you will find him answering to every interrogatory that any American cituen would desire to put to him. Tho office-holders had better do with all theo charges, as they arc or dered to do with his military achievements, "pass them by for what they arc worth." THE WHOLE COMMITTEE IIOLTED. Tho entire Van liuren Vigilance Committee at Bel mont, Ohio, have abandoned nil further service in thn ranks of the power party, and rallied under tho na- triotic llagof Harrisonoi Refcirm. Wo give Ihciii n cordial welcome for tho independent nnd manly pre ferciuo or their country before their party.

Jealousy of executive power, was one of tho first lessons inculcated by our republican fa thers. Absolute acquiescence in the will of tho majority, tliovitnlprinci- ilo oi repuuitcs economy in the public expenses, that abour may be lightly burthencd encouragement of lariculture, and commerce, ns its lrind-maid were among those principles which, to use. the languaco of the illustrious Jellcrson, "lorm Hint ri'jht constellation which has gone before u?,and gulch ' mrsteps through an njro of revolution and reformation. They should be the creed of our political faith tiic text book of civic instruction the touch-stone by winch to try the services of those we trust." We therefore announce our abandonment of Mr. Van Ruren, because he has abandoned these great democratic principles; and wo cordially embrace nnd support tlie nomination of Win.

Further Depreciation of prices, of almost every kind must follow the Sub-treasury. It is in vain lo to pretend that with a specie currency, we can compete with Europe. Tho proportion of their active to their hxed capital ii too much larger than tho same 'pro portion in this country. Thev will break down their American industry merely with the the refuse of their productions. Our price will continue ruinously low. All kindsof business must bo contracted to tho nar row limits of a specie currency. Nobody will be ben efitted but tho ricli men of active, capital, nnd the of fice-holders with appreciated salaries. There can be no more prosperity in American commercial towns.

A correspondent of Bennett's Herald, tin dor the dato of 4th July, gives tho following account of an engagement with tho Indians which appears to have been a severe one At about 11 o'clock on the morning of the 3d. (ves tcrday,) tho two columns, composed of the 1st nnd Gth I COIllUllllliCtltiOll. Mn. Editor,! noticed in tho Sentinel of last week n communication from ono who professes to bo nn ad mirer of tho "fair sex," but who, nt the same tiino, declares that with nil their beauty, loveliness and vir tue, he cannot overlook their follies. Whatever mo tives might havo called into excrciso so uncharitable n feeling towards nny class of individuals, nnd espe cially towards those who so prominent characteristics nrc acknowledged to be, beauty, loveliness nnd virtue, certainly a public expression of it merits universal con tempt. Such pretensions of respect for the fair sex must cither be regarded as hypocritical and false, or tho mo tivcsof such respect, base nnd ulhnnous. But, sir, what must bo tho state of that political party, whoso menial advocates, for want of real argument will make au lj nnd nVfite objects upon which to bestow their scan dalous inVcCtivel Is it n disgraco to female character to join with heftrt nnd hand in tho defence of those liberties, to obtain which, the mothers of tho rcvolu tion acted so noble and conspicuous it part 1 It may be that they exhibited weak minds but if so, it was an exhibition of weakness that ever has bccYi nnd ever will b'6 n"dmircd and extolled. History has paid them but a jilst compliment in nsscrting that in tho important events of the revolution, the singular pros pcrity and gr6wing success of tho American peoplo was owing in '& grcM measure to the superiority of their women. And that wo may recall to mind tho debt of grfttitudc which wo owo to those ministering angels, the "fair otics" of that day, in publicly com ing forward to cheer And assist American patriots iiV their struggles for liberty, wo have only to review tho pago of American history, which has recorded their public acts and sympathies in behalf of the causo of freedom. Wo there find that the ladies of the revo lution formed public societies in which they resolved to forego all the luxuries of life, rather than submit to injustice or oppression. It is hero that we find how soon the gaudy dress of foreign manufacture was ex changed for the simple attire of the builders of log cabin?, rather than yield a support to those who were laying unjust nnd tyrannicnl burdens upon their fa thers, their husbands and brothers. And some will say that this was evidence of their folly nnd weak" mindedness. But rest assured that this will never bo the opinion or sentiment of any true Whig. With tho spirit and example '6f such mothers, is it unnatural or improper that the females of the present time should watch with interest the movements of political par ties? Do they not enjoy, equally with ourselves, the success and prosperity of our government, and equally suffer the effect of its maladministration? Where then is the justice of denying them the right of manifesting their opinion in regard to those measures which so immediately affect their interercst and prosperity. The public demonstration of their political feelings for which theV are so deeply censured, so far form being 4 Violation of an religious principle, or even of proplicty, should rather bo considered a braisoworthy expression of that warm sympathy and support so characteristic of their attachment to the cause of re form. Such au act may be considered nn instance of unpardonable folly, by those, whose deeds of noli tical injustice aro not sanctioned by the nid of the virtuous, or cheered by the smiles of the beautiful, for it is an evidence to the world that liberty and jus tice in their humble simplicity, nro preferable to the luxuries of life under tyrrany and oppression. Communication. THE LOG CABIN. Hail l thou little humble domicil, With wall of logs so neatly laid, And roof of balk so nicely pealed, And well arranged 'the rain to shed, I hail thee as the woodman's home, Tho hunter's inn, and stage of rest To thoso who in thu forest roam. 'Tis oft the spot where man is blest. How oft, when wearied in the chase, And faint with thirst hnd hunger too, Thu rude log cabin in a place Where both are quelled with dainties now. What traveller by flight o'crtook, And sees no village tavern near, Would scorn then at thy door to knock, And seek a welcome shelter tlicrol How many, fond of pride and show, Build lofty mansions fine nnd gny ; V hose hearts no chnrity do know, Steeled to the prnycrs of poverty. Not so the henrts within thee found , , They ' vo known the wants that man assar, And ne'er the sorrowing bo9om wound, With cold repulse the podr repci. Necessity hero meets relief, . The hungry find n table spread. The weary a couch whereon to sleep, A pillow where to lay one's head. Should I then scorn the humble roof, . Whose walls the ono nlono has dressed, Wlicro often 1 have had such proof . That man may live here too and rest 1 Not I, indeed, since 'twas in ono That I first drew my infant breath This were enough to stay my scorn, And make inc love them till my death. Oft from log cabins men have sprung Whoso names in history aro prime, And left a lesson for the young, To imitate their deeds sublime. May wc then look with due respect On 'dwellings such as here are seen, And never, when acall we makc, Find the latch string onco pulled in. Huntington, July 10, 1910.

Strange as it may seem, there aro some men among us who still affect to doubt the fact that the prcsont administration is hostile to a high", or protecting tariff. With the testimony of such men as Buchanan, IJenton, Walker and other leading administration men in Congress, tho declaration of Mr. Van Ness here on the 4th', and the practical results that stare the manufac turer and farmer in the face, it is", to us, surprf sing that any man should hesitate. To such a have honest doubts on this subject, however, wo would say, read the following from the official organ, the Globe, of the 7th of February last. The editor is speaking of his course in rcferi ence to tho tariff and nullification. FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 2l,"T?W. nfaulry, commanded by Major Dearborn, when with n a few miles of Fort Fanning, were fired upon froii ambush by a party of Indians, supposed to number 300 warriors, The first fire, with the usual yell of the savages, as you may suppose, caused great confusion in the ranks for a bhort time.

They proceeded, however, to nomi nate or ballot for Johnson, when all voted for him but two one of these was for Polk, and the other for Col. Win. It. Johnson, (a Whig of Virginia.) This was a clincher. The President asked who gave that vote, and requested tho member to rise; but all 'sat still in silence.' The secretary then stated that ho thought the member who gave it was in error as to the ursi name.

AN INCIDENT. At tho battle of the Thames, n laughable incident occurred, which is thus related by one who was in the engagement. 1 he British General had formed his men in onert order, with their cannon pointing down the road, by wmcn tne .amencans were auvancing. ucn. Harri son immediately took advantage of this, nnd ordered Col. Johnson s mounted regiment to charge at speed by heads of companies (so as to expose the least pos sible frditt) pass through the open intervals, nnd form in the rear of the British forces. This movement wns brilliantly executed by the battalion under the com mand ot Lieut. Col. James Johnson : his brother. Col. It. M. Johnson, at the same timo charging the jnoiaiis wiiu tne inc otner uatiauon. It happened that in one of the companies under James Johnson's comrilhnd, there was n luige.long leg ged, bra wney fellow named Lamb; ho weighed about two hundred and forty pounds: was a bravo man. and as good humored as big brave men proverbially ore. Lamb had broken down his Kentucky horse, bv his great weight, and was mounted, instead, upon a short, stout, wild Canadian pony : from whose sides bis long limbs depended almost to the ground, while his bulky trtlme rose high above tho beast, looking not uniiKo an overgrown scuooi ooy astride oi a lougn teen. v hen tho charge was made, Lamb's pony took fright, and brbkc into a strain. Lamb nulled, until the bit broke in Ihe animal's month, and all command of him was lost. The littlo pony stretched himself to the work, dashed out of the rnriks, soon out-stripped all his file-leaders, nnd pushed on in advance ot the company. Lamb was no longer master of his horao or himself, and he was in a quandary. If he rolled olfhe would bo trampled to death by hisown friends n tne norsu rusticu upon tuu iiruiHi lines wiiu mm so lar ahead ot the rest, no must be killed, bit her way death seemed inevitable : nnd. to use his own expres sion, he thought he'd jist say something tlicy could tell his friends in Kentucky, when they went homo. lie stuck both heels into the pony's tlanks and urged him to his utmost speed. On they drove, somo fifty yards in front of thu leading file. Lamb's gigantic per son swaying from side to side, and his legs swinging in a most portentous fashion tho little Canadian "pulling foot ' all ho knew how, his tail straight, his nostrils distended, his ears pinned back, and hisshinv eyes flashing from under his shaggy foretop with nil llw spite and spleen of a born devil. Just as begot within a stride or two of the British, Lamb nourished his ritle, and roared out in a voicoof thunder "Clear Vou arc a park of lying scoundrels," says iho old man, "1 doiit nciicvoit word you say ( toll it myself, A ( iianok in Indiana. Air. Grayy tho ablest eiritnr In tho loco foco ranks in Indiana, has aban doned tho paity.

So grcnt was their nstonish meut at the strnnge npparition of such n rider, nnd nnd such o horse, moving upon them with such furious velocity, that they opened mechanically at hU word of command, nnd let him pass. So soon' ns ho gained the rear of their position, Lamb rolled offon the grass and suffered his pony to go his own road. A few minutes more and he was with his comrades securing tho prisoners. OGLE'S SPEECIL The locofocos are endeavoring to divert public attention from the astonishing disclosures of this document, by saying that Mr. Lincoln, a whig member of the committee, exculpated Mr. Van Huron from all blame, and charged it upon the committee. This is no sufficient justification with us, and will not be witli tho People. If the Committee arc to be responsible for this gorge ous display, that is only shifting tho responsibil ity one step further. It still falls back upon the President, for the Committee was composed of a majority of his friends, and they would not have ,-enturcdto insult him and shock his Democratic feelings by pressing upon him all the magnificent luxuries by which he is surrounded, if they had been disagreeable to him. Without some prompting, they would never have thought of " French Comfortables," " French Bedsteads," "Turkish Dicans," "daily roses al 81 50a piece," "artificial flowers for the President's table," &c. &.c. And we do not believe that a single mem ber of the Committee ever heard of, or had the remotest idea of what a TABOURET was. Van himself must have suggested that. It is an arti cle only found in the Palaces of Kings, where no member of the Committee has ever been. " Luxury has made fatal inroads upon the fru gal habits of our Fathers. The principles and examples of Washington and Jefferson have departed. Mr. Van Buken, in furnishing tho Executive Mansion, has taken the Monarchs of Europe for his model. Every thing is done upon a scale of Royal Magnificence. It deeply con cerns the whole People. The Furniture in the President's Palace was purchased with money drawn from tho Treasury. Wc are told that Mr. Van Bur.EN is a plain Republican. Let him be jndged by the manner in which he lives. He was elected under a plcdgo of '' Retrenchment and Reform." The money expended by him for " Koval Caiu-ets" " Imperial Curtains)" " Turkish Ottomans," " Daily Roses;" &c: will show how well that pledge has been re deemed. England is cursed with a ROYAL HOUSEHOLD which grinds her People to the Earth. Millions arc doomed to toil for a scanty, wretched subsistence, to enable tho ROYAL FAMILY to riot in luxurious ease. Mr VAX Buuen basked in the sunshine of that Court He there imbibed a taste for Magnificent Equip age and Costly Furniture. This taste, in imita tion of Iloyaltyj he is indulging at the People's expense. Wc do not; after this exposition of the Princely style and Royal habits of His American Majesty; wonder that his Household followers sneer at Log Cabins ! The man who walks upon Roval Wilton Carvets which cost 81 per yardf reclines upon Ottomans which cost 250; indulges his feet with Rugs which cost 8!10, touches "Bell Pulls" which cost 8107, and enjoys the fragrance of "Roses" at an expense of 872, must hold tho occupants of Log. Cabins in supremo contempt !" But the worst feature of all, is, that while the administration is thus squandering tho people's money, it is practically doing all in its power to discourage American industry and enter prise. It appears by the qflicial documents that tho sum of 86,490 03 of the people's money has been paid by this "reforming" administra-i tion, since July 1809, for FOREIGN Carjiets and Oil Cloth to adorn tho President's house ! Now let tho reader turn to the 3d section of am act of Congress, passed the 22A of Mayi 1820,1 and now in force. It is in theso words : td ndustry hope from an administration whose official organ thus proclaims its early, open, undisguised hoi. tility J There can no longer be anv doubt where the auministration stands. JACKSON'S LETTER. Gen. Jackson has como out with a letter,' abusing Gen. Harrison for the benefit of Mr; Van Burcn in which he denies that Gen. Har rison was ever identified with the republiein party, and snccringly alludes to his military services. This is not the first time Gen. Jack son has thus manifested iiis ill will. One of tho first acts of his administration, was to recall Gen. Harrison from Colombia, to make room for the infamous Tom Moore ; and since that period, he has omitted no opportunity to vent his spleen at him. Nor is Gen. Harrison sinirular in this respect. It is not on record, we believe; tint Gen. Jackson has ever admitted the military talents or services of any military man, living or dead. On the contrary, he has had open quarrel with Scott, Gaines, Brown, Adair; and every other military man with whom he has como in contact, in latter time's ; while the re cords of the U. S. Senate show in what estima tion he held the military talents of Gen. Wash ington. He was one of the three who recorded their names against a vote of thanks to thcr of his country, on his retirement from public life Gen. Harrison docs not covet approbation from a quarter where Washington was rebuked. But, forsooth, Gen. Harrison was never iden tified with tho democratic party ! Let us see, a little, whether he is not identified with the causo of his country; Our forefathers wero somewhat given to interfering with Cupid, nnd tried hard toinako him shoot arrows according to law. In 1647 our general Court passed a law that no one should "go a courting" any young lady with out first getting tho consent of parents or guar dians, or in case of their absence, of onoof tho county Court, under a penally of fivo pounds fur tho first offence, ten for tho socond, im prisonment for tho third. In lGtiO u man was absolutely fined fivo pounds, 'for making lovo with Mr. Bridge's (laughter without her parent's consent.' What times wo should hnvo if such a law was now in forco ; only think of our bontix, bringing in their petition's to magistrates 'humbly praying that his honor would vouchsafe to givo his consent that the undersigned might mnko love to Sally this ono or Ilotsoy that one.-' Wu reckon thero might possibly bosonio forfeitures under such u statute in theso parts.
