Both parties in Ohio Are preparing themselves for a vigorous and fierce contest in the fall. District and county conventions Are being held by both of them to nominate their cd Jid ites. No officers of greater importance than members of the legislature Are to be elected consequently there is some danger that the whigs will not be fetid themselves in the contest As they should. If there be any such danger Quot be would Call their attention to the result of the election that has just passed in this state that they May take warning and profit by the discomfiture of their Brethren Here. The whigs polled some thousands less than their real strength while their opponents fell Short if they fell Short at All not As Many hundreds. In fact this is one of the grand secrets of their strength. They always vote. Business nor a weather never stops them. Another important secret of their strength is they ate Ahvay United. When they in their Strong counties nominate a full ticket they vote for it and never suffer themselves to be drawn off and hum bugged by Quot Independent but their policy is in the undoubted whig counties to get As Many Independent whig candidates on the track As possible against the regular nominees by promising their support but take care that there shall be no More of their own candidates running than the right number for each office. They employ their whole time in keeping the Quot independents Quot on the track by telling them they have no Hope of electing their own friends and that their Only Hope of defeating the regular ticket is by their the independents keeping in the Field. That far they Are Correct. Their Only Hope always of defeating the regular nominees is by keeping them in the canvass. Vav Hen the time comes however for depositing their votes they Are thrown silently but surely for their own friends and the duped and disappointed Independent candidates have not friends left even to sympathise with them. If our Ohio friends would succeed they must avoid the rocks and Shoals upon which we have foundered. They must bring capable honest and popular candidates before the people and then they must vote for them. They must not feel secure even in their strongest holds. That feeling of Security and indifference consequent upon great strength caused the whigs in this state to lose the election of Many of their political friends. In Randolph Wayne Vigo and Many other counties in which we have been hitherto Invulnerable the opposition at the late election partially succeeded through the inertness and divisions among the whigs. Whigs of Ohio remember that Union vigilance and action Are essential to Victory and that for the want of them your Brethren in Indiana have been Defeated notwithstanding their Superior strength. We would Call attention to the communication in this paper. It is from a source that entitles it to weight. The author is a practical Man and one who has been a close observer of events for the last twelve years. His advice is always Safe and excellent. To Gettier even in a Justice s election. They cry out previous to All elections Quot no party Quot Quot no party Quot but when they vote they Are sure to be found together. They had two candidates Bui they threw All their votes except 13 for the stronger. The whigs had four candidates and gave each a respectable Vole. Or. Hare declined about three hours after the voting commenced. Cannot the whigs learn a salutary lesson from this Little township election would caution the Public against a quack Medicine advertised As Quot or. Harlick s compound strengthening tonic and German ape Rient we have reason to believe Katz and some others interested in imposing them on the Public to be no better than swindlers. They have swindled us at any rate. Indiana state Sentinel. This same fellow Katz a druggist of Philadelphia is trying to cheat us out of $50. If he succeeds we Only Wiah that he May have to Swallow a dose of each of the Many deleterious nostrums he is imposing on the Public. He would then see whether he could cheat his satanic majesty out of a subject. The Cincinnati Gazette treats lightly the assertions of or. Broker Wood in relation to the solvency of the Hamilton county Bank. Hear it the Newtown Shi plasters. John Wood a broker al Indiana ohs on the 4th inst., notifies the Public that the Hamilton county Bank was Quot duly chartered a has More Money in its stocks in proportion to ils issues Quot than tie stale Bank of Indiana a to at it has Ai this time Quot three dollars of stuck paid Quot in Quot for every Dollar of ils paper that has or will be put in circulation at present Quot fudge this answering of fudge Quot is a Brief and chilling Way of disposing of argument or assertion but it is entirely proper in the present instance when what was said was so preposterous and ridiculous that people Only laughed at it. For the journal. Thoughts upon the late and present administrations in reference to the currency a id the results of the late elections in this state. Bank Bill passed. Let us congratulate the country upon the adoption by a whig Congress of a measure of solid and permanent Relief. The following letter contains intelligence we Are sure that will thrill through every Patriot. We shall have a National Bank and that is glory enough for one administration. House of representatives August 6, 1841. Messes. Douglass amp Noel gentlemen we have this moment passed the Bank Bill As it came from the Senate without amendment by a vote of 128 for and 97 against it. It wants now nothing but the president s signature 10 become a Law. In haste yours respectfully David Wallace. The following is the official vote for a Justice of the peace at the election on saturday the 7ih instant 1st poll. Id poli Joseph a. Levy whig 06 we. Y. Wiley whig 42 d. I. White whig 45 John Hare whig 18 Quot we. Sullivan . 98 Joshua Soule or. V. B. 9 137 57 51 30 105 4 total 233 99 96 48 203 13 we have designated the politics of the candid ale Only to show How the Van Baren party hang seven years ago we had a Good sound paper currency. It was determined by politicians who desired to hold on to Power they obtained by the grateful feelings of the american peole towards the successful commander at new Orleans to distinguish themselves from the parly preceding them by pulling Down All then standing. One Means was to array the feelings of an unsuspecting Community against the great head of a sound paper currency a National Bank and against almost every other leading measure that the country was prospering under. After endeavouring to array honest prejudice by talking of lords and ladies of England &c., they promised a better currency in the slate Banks and every slate was encouraged by the party then in Power to create them. The Globe complimented Kentucky and Indiana in Advance that they were going to make their own Banks and the Plain indication was Liat the parly claimed the slate Banks As their offspring no specie currency and Down with Bank monopolies then and for a while the Means and influence of the party were Given to hurry them into existence and encourage and urge them on to extend their discounts and circulation. As was easily foreseen by the in Wing ones of the party it would Lead to extravagance and High prices and the people were called on to see what the administration had done not what the Banks had done in raising the prices. Things went on swimmingly for a while and no whig was charged with making the slate Banks that would not do just then but there seemed no stopping place to the issues. The Sentinel had been removed and unmeasured space invited them to come. It was soon seen by those Quick sighted politicians with a knowledge of its operation on the Treasury that they must soon fall of their own unregulated weight. Tact must now be used to lose nothing politically so the specie circular was resorted Loas a cure All after the seduction to mischief Lead been accomplished. This resulted As might have been expected. The next thing was to catch the ears of a confiding people by another new project knowing the Charm in specie and the readiness of honest prejudice to receive the demagogue who professes exclusive care for them. After tinkering a while with the specie circular and finding it standing alone rather unpopular they began with the greatest of All humbugs to advocate an exclusive specie currency and upon the suspension of the Banks began with All the Cool impudence imaginable to denounce All Banks and Bank rags As whig Money &c., and endeavoured to array prejudice against the whigs just As though such Banks were their Choice and As though the Jackson and Van Buren party had not advocated and urged their creation. To look Back it is a matter of wonderful astonishment How they calculated on the credulity of the american people in expecting to escape the responsibility of creating the state Banks and urging them to excess to produce a redundancy of currency and raise prices to do away the effects of their outrage upon the Best currency the country Ever had. If after destroying the u. S. Bank they had at once resorted to a specie currency and met its effects upon the country by an honest expression that it was their principle and they desired not to deceive the country into acquiescence in the destruction of a u. S. Bank by promising them better Banks they would at least have deserved some credit for being governed by principle but they at that time intended no such thing nor would run no a Uch risk if they had or. Van Buren would never have reached the presidential chair. But instead of being governed by any particular principle it has been a scene of subterfuge until All resorts were worn out and they saw no other course left them but to stand on the sub Treasury. Here for the first time and in connection with this seems the Only declaration of any fixed Creed which was promulgated and each politician Learned it by heart things which his democracy had never before taught him All prepared at Washington and sent Forth. The whig party As a parly were opposed to the creation to much extent of state Banks they were in favor of a u. S. Bank and branches but when they were powerless they had no Choice but to take such Banks As the then party in Power would encourage. If the country had a paper circulation at All they did not As demagogue politicians they might have done turn to and cry out for a specie currency alone they knew it was hum buggery and an affliction the country could not stand and they therefore gave a necessary acquiescence to the creation of such Banks As the other party urged looking Forward to the time when they might have the Power to restore to the country a Safe sound and useful paper currency convertible at will into specie and portrayed at the time what must be the result of relying on state Banks alone with As much accuracy As though they had written All at this Day and had it not been for the wretched management of the Pennsylvania Bank of the United states mistakenly looked upon As a u. S. Bank the humbugs of the party in reference to the currency would have been so completely exposed they could scarcely have rallied. If after the ins Titu lion became a slate one it had confined its operations Only to Active business and held ils Large capital sufficiently at command to have stepped in al the first encouraging movement of the government towards solvent institutions the delusion held out by the politicians of the party would have been so far seen through that they could no longer have found prejudice to operate on and would not now be ranting in Hopes of obtaining Power because the whigs have not built up in five months what they have been double that Many years in pulling Down. And the Jackson and Van Buren party have occasion to bless the managers of the Pennsylvania Bank of the u. States for easing Oil and suspending for a Lime a portion of that condemnation that would otherwise have rested on All Llie leaders. They for a Short time May Ward off a portion by the hum buggery of referring to the results of Liat slate institution As a u. S. Bank. Its wretched management has been fortunate for them they use it and it helps to cover up and excuse their reckless course but Tivey cannot conceal the fact that they destroyed a Good currency and the country is now suffering under it. The whigs have promised a Good sound paper currency and al a former time it was asserted by them in Congress that if government would change ils course and restore a National Bank the country would in sixty Days have such an one. They were then justifiable in the assertion and would live been borne out for the energies of the people were not then so borne Down the prices of produce not so much depressed and the states of the West and South West were in addition to their Large exports receiving funds from abroad for internal improvements which the policy of the last two administrations had driven them to and thus had the command of Eastern funds ready at any moment by the stability the circulation of a. S. Bank would have Given to have resumed payments in specie with reasonable prospects of successful continuance but the party then in Power continued in their course of depletion till All currency is destroyed All prices depressed and energies paralysed and in this condition the government comes into the hands of the whigs and occasional murmurs Are heard from professed friends and exultation of opponents that they have not already Given to the country a sound currency and restored that Prosperity in five Short months that their opponents have been More than double that Many years bringing Down and this complaint All before one solitary measure they Are trying to adopt for the Benefit of the country becomes a Law let alone giving time afterwards for ils operation. Are these murders reasonable Are they fair Are they calculated to promote the welfare of tie country leaving party out of the question to those who aided in bringing the present administration into Power were your purposes patriotic were your desires pure or did you look More at self aggrandizement by political association than the Public Good and when you Are not amongst the few who can be politically promoted is your patriotism ended to those governed by the latter feeling appeals Are useless but the consideration of those governed by the former Are especially desired to the contemplation of the effects of the result of the late elections. You but a few months since professed to support your parly for the Good of your country you selected Public servants to repair to the councils of the nation to carry into effect your will in the adoption of such measures As you Atid they thought Best calculated to restore Prosperity to your afflicted country. In pursuance of this Mutual understanding they Are at their posts faithfully carrying out what they suppose to be your will in the midst of this and before any thing is consummated although All you expected is in Progress a Large portion of you from various causes not connected with National politics cast your votes for members of the legislature opposed openly ensuing in Quarter which will be on the 1st january on faithful servants at Washington Are advocating. How discouraging to them How disco Raeine to appoint intent go into effect. ,co re. -11., i respectfully your obedient servant those of other states with whom you stood Shou f j w Der to shoulder whatever explanation you or the press May give ils effects will be paralysing. You have placed it in the Power of your opponents if they consider Possession however obtained sufficient to instruct your congressmen to do just what you do not want done. What a temptation does your course hold out to trading politicians in Congress if such there be to say to themselves Quot when the whigs of Indiana will for some trivial cause place their opponents in Power to harrass and thwart us in our measures at a time when we need All their countenance and unwavering support what or Spect is there that this administration will be sustained no difference How Good to Weir measures i will therefore set up for myself and hold myself in readiness to drop on either Side at the next presidential what is now done cannot be recalled but every whig who belongs to his party for his county s Good should Well consider of the propriety of voting for one of his own politics in any Case where the influence can be used to sustain or weaken the measures of his Choice. It is to be regretted that it is necessary to thus run into and keep up party but suppose the whigs pass All their measures a sound currency is restored and the country prospering to the extent of our expectations there stands politicians in Congress of the opposite party declaring their intentions to repeal any financial measure of the whig party As soon As they have the Power. This then becomes the watch word of the party and if they can succeed they will do so regardless of All the loss and sufferings the Community would have to undergo from it. This declaration of theirs is unconditional they do not say if it produces the Good ils friends profess we will let it alone not at All. It is not a party measure of theirs and party to them seems before to Weir country. The politicians Tii Ink they cannot keep in Power if some new scheme of their own not in operation hence they will try to destroy every measure however useful it works thai is not theirs and hence the necessity painful As it is to Many whigs to act upon party principles to support those in favor of their measures they Are driven to it by the declaration of their opponents. To the impatient portion of Community who Are looking for a change of times from the measures of the present administration i would say give them a reasonable Lime 11&Quot Uliey succeed in their measures now before Congress you will have a Revenue from imports to support the government and pay its debts your portion of the proceeds of the Public lands a National Bank of the safest kind that will Lay like foundation of a sound paper currency convertible into specie at will in a Short time after it gets in operation All the solvent state Banks will resume specie payments and the insolvent ones will be driven from existence. At once then safety will be Felt in the currency Enterprise will step Forward agriculture manufactures and Mechanic arts and every desirable interest will have a healthy Prosperity. Rally to the support of those carrying out these measures a give but reasonable Lime and under the Blessing of Providence Prosperity awaits us. Listen not to the croaker of either parly that the country cannot become prosperous Good measures and Industry will cause every reasonable expectation to be realized in a reasonable Lime. A whig for . Barry. it not conclusive or. Editor Liat the policy of the preceding administration was to remove in All cases incumbents from office who were opposed in opinion to the measures of the administration and substitute in their state political partisans who were willing and Able to contribute Aid in behalf of a perpetuation of their political Power the above letter is offered As record evidence of the fact. Or. Mitchell was removed for no official misconduct on the contrary the Post ister general frankly attests that his Quot official conduct had met with my Liin decided a pro nation Quot and appears to have consented to his dismissal with Manifest reluctance. It establishes however an import Ian fuel that the administration held themselves obliged to remove lie never Quot the Public sentiment demands a to icing i Quot Quot Liat is whenever Quot the party re juiced the dismissal of a Public officer from whom no political support could be extracted and the substitution in his place of some one who could and would apply that assistance. Docs this not draw us irresistibly to the conclusion that the present a cd Foco incumbents were corruptly advanced to Power and place upon that principles and if so is it not due to the dignity of the nation and in accordance with every principle of Justice that they be immediately dismissed. Having been found in office upon the coming into Power of the existing administration is proof Liat they were either preferred to Supply the places made vacant by the dismissal of Stern and incorruptible republicans or having been appointed by former administrations they basely yielded under the influence of retention in office. Under this Gre Vious wrong have we been living for the last twelve years and until the late glorious Victory when the people placed Power in the hands of their servants to apply the remedy. Why sir is it not done Why is their will thus utterly disregarded Craic. Or. Brent and or. unfortunate difference had occurred Between these gentlemen which has led or. Brent to charge or. Clay with ingratitude and a want of integrity of purpose in his conduct towards his friends. He has also cited some expressions made use of by Gen. Harrison to show that lie also had received treatment at the hands of or. Clay vol Rich caused i n to entertain the same opinion of him. This has induced the publication of Iho following remarks made by gon. Harrison shortly by fore his inauguration at a Public dinner at George town Wlinich Are vouched for by or. C. C. Fulton tin Hon. Henry Clay having been toasted Gen. Harrison Rose and remarked in words and substance As follows Quot i Tako great pleasure in responding to the senti Niento Winch has just been received with so much in Titus ism by the company for Lam proud to be Able to state that the distinguished individual alluded to is a ii firm personal Ond poli Mienl Friend.

We learn from the Gallipolis journal that lie was found guilty of forging several Bills of Exchange purporting to be drawn by Maurice Sullivan in favor of l. Traylon and by him endorsed accepted by John Murphy the drawer. Exceptions have been to the indictment upon which application will be made to the supreme court for a writ of oin. Gazette. Fro a the Baltimore Patriot. Or. Editor permit me through the medium of your paper to present the following Lottor of the late w. T. Barry postmaster general of the United states As illustrative of the Mode of doing business during the preceding administrations Post office depart Iuen october 30, 1831 to Nathaniel Mitchell Esq. P. M. At Portland me. Sir the Hon. F. O. J. Smith and messes. Willis and Clapp As a committee deputed for that purpose have Laid before me the proceedings and resolutions of a Public meeting assembled at Portland from different parts of the county of Cumberland on the 14th and 15ih instant on the subject of the pending application for your removal from the office of postmaster at Portland Maine and said application has again this Daj been taken up for consideration. I have also had under consideration the remonstrances and statements in your behalf on file in the department. As your official conduct has met Withy decide Dap a pro halon not Only in reference to the discharge of your Ordinary duties but also in respect to the perfor7nance of a difficult Servia that had devolved on you As the special agent of the department and Wichich you had attended to with commendable Zeal and Fidelity i have All along cherished the Hope that the circumstances of the Case would be such As would justify your . But it is obvious that the Public sentiment in Maine demands a change in the office. It is unnecessary to specify the evidences furnished of this state of Public feeling. You Are aware of the popular expressions at Tho meeting above referred to and of the statements and request set Forth in the Mei Norins of citizens and the recommendations of Many individuals who enjoy Tho Confidence of Tho people and from the situations they occupy Are entitled to speak in a representative capacity. Are such As to warrant the conclusion Liat your longer continuance in office will excite the Rubalc i have accordingly come to the determination of ordering a new appointment of postmaster for the City of Portland. Thomas Todd a a. Will he appointed your Succoso Sor. In order to allow sufficient time and a Cove we Nave seen it stilled in one of the Western papers that Joe Smith the mormon once paid a visit to Keokuk the Indian chief and attempted to persuade. Him to embrace the mormon Creed. He told the Indian that mormonism would prevent the bullets from Injia Rizig him and that he had himself been shot to lice times and not Hurt. Keokuk then requested Joe to stand sixty paces off at which distance he would shoot at him three times with his Rille and if he remained unharmed the Indian promised to embrace mormonism. This was rather too much for Joe find he accordingly backed out. And refused to take him on Quot those times. Will find much cause for honest Pride and congratulation by a comparison of their own manner of exercising the estimable right of suffrage with that of the free and enlightened Monner clip of great Britain. We have often thought that there were rather too Many improper influences at work at our own elections to obtain in every ease a free and Independent expression of the popular sense but it has very rarely if Ever come within our notice that voters were brought up at the polls like cattle at a fair. It is positively asserted that at the recent elections in England to which we particularly refer one Hundred pounds were paid by the tories for any three votes and fifty guineas for a single vote on several occasions where the contest was supposed to be about equal and the result Uncertain. We sincerely Hope that so flagrant an example of political depravity will not be lost upon our people but that it will stimulate them to preserve and Mierish More than Ever that priceless jewel a purity of suffrage As the palladium of their liberties. Where Public opinion is permitted to be made a Ven Dable commodity popular elections degenerate into a Mere farce and Liberty Falls prostrate at the foot of despotism. We need no longer wonder at the Success of the tory parly in the late parliamentary elections in England with the wealthy aristocracy to Back them when elections were notoriously car ried by bribery and Beacon. Female French paper furnishes us with the following account of an act of heroism on the part of a Young lady at Montpelier. During a fire which entirely destroyed a boarding school for Young ladies in thai City on the night of the 14th of june mile de Roqu Feuille one of the teachers not More than 22 years of age displayed the following instance of intrepid humanity. Soon after the first alarm she with great presence of mind made her escape with two of the younger children in her next care was to Muster All the pupils and Call Over the names to ascertain that none were left behind. All answered but one a Little girl seven years old. Con Vinced Liat she was still in the burning building. Mile de Roqu Feuille resolved to save her or perish. Obtaining a Flambeau she entered the House and reached an outer dormitory Here the Smoak was so dense that her Light was extinguished by it. Nevertheless and although the floor had been caught by the flames she made her Way to an inner room where she found the object of her anxiety still fast asleep and unharmed. Catching up the child she happily made her Way Back into the open air a scorched fully rewarded in her own heart and therefore Happy although she had lost in the fire every particle of property she Atlas.
