That she herself had Given him her Faith but that she by having received some bad advice has changed her notions and refuses the hand of Francois Vallet without any legitimate cause.

In order to satisfy the North As to the do Termina Tio Nothe South to Annex Texas to the Union we copy the following resolutions adopted by both branches of the South Carolina legislature at late session.

Many of our Philo gifts hav Aitch noted though very unsatisfactorily to the origin of this somewhat singular term. Mordica m. Noah of new York undertakes to account for it upon the Faith of a rather apocryphal Story Ofa recruiting officer not of very Brilliant i Crary who was engaged during the late War in enlisting a company of Hussars whom by Mistuko lie unfortunately denominated hoosiers. Another etymology is ills us that when the state of Lillima was being surveyed the surveyors on finding he residence Ofa squatter would excl Herevi that the exclamation abbreviated to , was in process of time applied As a distinctive appellation to the Ori it must be admitted. It must head Mil led that our country was never More prosperous and Happy than during the administration . Monroe an j or. Adams. It must be admitted that Evhen general Jackio i was brought Forward As a candidate for the pro it i Dency and his partisans began to cry out Quot bargain and corruption Quot there was nothing like political acrimony and asperity existing in the United stat do it must be admitum that when general Jackson took the reins of government he found the country enjoying the highest degree of Prosperity. Our Commerce was flourishing our manufactures were rapidly increasing and finding markets in almost All parts of the world and labor was in demand Aud commanded High wages. It must be admitted that we had then a currency than which no nation in the world could boast of a sounder or one of More uniformity. That exchanges were never higher than from one and a half to two per. Cent Between any of the principal cities of the United states and that merchants found no difficulty in making remittances to any Point where their business required. La must be admitted that until general Jackson came into Power the government had always instead of warring upon the interests of its citizens and interfering with the currency endeavoured to promote the former and permitted the latter to be neglected by the Trade and Commerce of the country. It must be admitted that no sooner had general got Well seated in the presidential chair than he commenced not Only an unprecedented political proscription for opinion s Sake but a relentless War upon the currency which has resulted in prostrating the Trade Commerce Industry and Prosperity of the country. It must be admitted that the measures of the past and present administration have been ill advised arbitrary and ruinous and yet have been supported by the party even when disapproved and condemned by a Large portion of the loading and most intelligent men of the party and it must be admitted that those who have thus yielded their support to measures of which they did not hesitate privately to express their utterly go Demna Tion have been generally rewarded by political promotion and with office in proportion As they sacrifice their own judgments Jand prove faithful to the p irly but false to the country.

Up Ehrck a Tho yeas and nays were ordered and than. From the Mead Nlle a statesman. General Harrison. The cause of our distinguished candidate for Tho presidency is rapidly on the Advance. Not a paper do we open but contains some new evid Cnoc of his increasing popularity every meeting of the peole teems wit i enthusiastic feeling the whole West stands United in the determination to elevate their Brave defender to the High station for which his talents qualify him and his eminent services Merit. In u Pennsy Ivania we Are of one mind and heart upon this subject. No other candidate is thought of. And the Bare suggestion there is a possibility of his being supplanted kindles up a flame of jealousy in Tho breasts of our people which it is easy to discover must not be tampered with. With Harrison As our candidate we Advance to certain Victory but it under any circumstances to should not receive Iho nomination of the National convention to have every thing to would dread Auch an event As the sure precursor of our utter defeat. As we before remarked if the people Are permitted to move on of their own Accord the Man of their Choice is Gen. H. But we wish to apprise and warn them of Tho danger which exists of w orld by leaders thwarting their will and bringing ruin upon our cause and blasting our Bright anticipations. There Are men in every party Olio desire to be rulers of Public sentiment a who wish to make it subservient to their wishes and interests and such we fear is the character of those who Are endeavouring to Aub statute u new candidate for the presidency. Luckily such men Are few in num Uerz a full expression of Tho people s desire will Seal their lips la confusion and dismay. The Cincinnati daily express speaking of the meeting recently held by the neighbors of general Harrison says Quot Tho friends of general Harrison citizens of Hamilton county assembled at the court House to consider Tho expediency of nominating him fur the pre Sivieng. At an Early hour the Large Hull of Tho court House was crowded and hundreds loft the doors unable to obtain a place within.

Of Sherman with a specimen of bar Iron manufactured at their forge in the flourishing Village of Mishawnna four Miles from this town. This Isth a first wrought Iron that has Ever been manufactured in this state or in fact West of the lakes. Judging from the bar now in our Possession we five no hesitation in pronouncing the Iron made at that forge an excellent article. The manufacture of bar Iron in Northern Indiana must to looked up on by every citizen As an event of almost incalculable interest to our whole Cou Witry hitherto our citizens have had to bring All the wrought Iron used in this county from Trio East the Cost of this indispensable article has been , and has retarded the improvement of our country in a very considerable degree.
