The , Indiana 26, 1830. The people s candidate for preside new. H. our patrons.-c0 necessity compels us to Call upon �11 those indebted to us for Job work advertising and a script arms to make immediate payment.

Pork flour Corn und meal will be taken at the Market prices. Also those who to pay us in lire Wood must do so immediately a we must have our Wood Laid in for the Winter before the roads get bad. Our agents will please collect and Forward our dues in their respective neighbourhoods. The Lilli colons. The Loco focus have triumphed Over the whigs i 1 Cluj states of Ohio and i Pennsylvania. In Ohio of live Elf Ltd their governor a Large majority i tic Congressi Iichi and a majority of both Branch it Sofia f.,u i suture. In Penny Tania they have Elo Toj Iligir governor and we suppose every thing else. Though we Are sorely grieved at this result yet we Are not at All astonished. The whigs must Blu Iii themselves they have pulled ruin and disgrace Down u it on their own Heads and should not murmur at it. The reckless course pursued by some who have been too Long suffered to dictate and Lead the party has done the business. While Gen. I Murrison was understood to be the whig candidate for the presidency every Battle fought resulted in Ivor of the whigs and the Loco focus were fast dwindling into insignificance. But so soon As it was understood that or. Clay would probably re curve the nomination Hoftke National convention t be turned. This we foresaw and together w Qiliu few of our contemporaries warned the whigs ii the great danger of tampering with the name of or. Clay but they heeded not they thought the i entice of the Louisville journal and some of the Eastern Edilard wore the bettor judges and Atco Iii in Thi a joined in the cry for or. Clay and Ilio result of the Ute Eloctio is in Missouri Ohio Pei Isyl Vunia 4 c. Is a Comincio Cement of the in with of their labor and Superior knowledge. Suc have live been one Are unwilling to see him again brought into the yield when his defeat is inevitable. His very name is a Riisom to a urge majority of the Jackson men who Supich arted Gen. Liar Sou in the late contest for tic Pius Doncy and they will not support him under any circumstances whatever. We have not heard any reason assigned fur the defeat of the whigs in Ohio and i Pennsylvania but we Are Satis lied that the using of or. Clay s name for the preside try was the cause of it. The whigs Lingo too Long suffered themselves to be dictated to by and dandies the hard li.-, yeomanry of the country have the stability a id Wittell Gionco to Ami urge their own affairs and unless they Iii mediately Luy their shoulders to Tho u libel All is lost. Iron Ore. One of the richest Beds of Iron Ore to the Western country it is thought has been discovered in this county on the Waters of Indian Creek about 11 Miles West of this place. It is the opinion of several intelligent gentlemen who have had experience in the business of manufacturing Iron that the Ore in this bed in inexhaustible and of the very Best Quality the for castings and wrought Iron. Or. Ross to a pricing gentleman from Virginia whom we understand has been engaged in the business of manufacturing Iron in that state has purchased the land containing this Ore for a very trifling sum of a or. Adams who did not know its immense value or perhaps was not aware that his land contained the Metal until he had sold it. Or. Ross is now making preparations to build a Furnace and calculates to be ready to Nian facture castings in the month of february next and so soon As the machinery can be prepared wrought Iron. This establishment when in successful operation will be of immense value to the citizens of this county and the state generally. We have no a doubt but our county abounds with Iron Ore of the very Best Quality. We understand that a considerable qty entity and of a Good Quality has been dist Vered on the Waters of Salt Creek and Richland. Here it wide Field opened to the enterprising capitalist who will doubtless Ere Long enter it with avidity. But few counties int he state have had As much done for them by nature As Monroe she can already boast of her never failing Salt Wells and in a Short time the cheering sound of the massive tilt Hammer will resound Over Hill and Dale. Quot general Harrison makes a polite Bow to every vagrant he reporter. Then when you meet the old general you May expect one of his lowest bows. We deeply regret to learn that the Hon. S. S.

Our Baltimore papers contain innumerable notices of wrecked vessels and perhaps at no former period did so Many disasters Ever occur at sen in so Short u period.
