The whigs of Elliis county held a convention on last saturday to nominate candidates for the August election. Every township was fully represented. The following Are the nominations which were made Harding and Austin wmorris. Treasurer and Landis. Turner. w. Hamilton. m Collum. Commissioner 1st District. A Harris Tyner. Congressional election. Of the importance of electing a Good and True whig to Congress from the Central District of Indiana it is not necessary to speak As All Are fully aware of it we would Only attempt to guard our friends against listlessness and Surprise we would arouse them from the apathy that seems to have seized upon them. It is in politics As in every other business nothing can be accomplished without vigilance activity and exertion. Our opponents Well understand this and they Are wide awake. Emissaries have been sent from this town by the Post office Junto to ail parts of the District to arouse the faithful. One of them the sex Secretary of state reached Home a few Days since. Others Are still out and some of them among other things equally false Are attempting to make the people believe that or. Palmer will receive whig Voles in this county. There is Noi the slightest foundation for this assertion. We hav get not heard of one whig and we have made particular enquiry in town or country that will vote for n. B. Palmer. Ail of them that will vote at All will vote for Javid Wal lace. Most of the whigs of this county belong to the farming class and As this part of the sea Eon is always pressing with them Many May not attend the polls but of those that do n. B. Palmer will get no vote. To Ilac Sli Arrison i incr of ilae sixth Coas Ress Obeal Bis a ice at this late hour Only a few Days before our congressional election we feel it our imperative duty to address Jou an Earnest Short Appeal. We Call to Jour notice some important facts. The Van Euren candidate for Congress Nathan b. Palmer has not come out before the people with his views but his runners and partisans arc traversing every township in the District arranging for a full Effort to elect their candidate by making a rally of their own party and endeavouring to Palm falsehoods upon the whigs. From these runners you hear nothing of or. Palmer s being in favor of the sub Treasury that measure of or. Van Buren s for reducing and that in his solemn Appeal to his countrymen for their Confidence and Aid in carrying out the great Harrison Reform by which alone the country is to be relieved we hear the rallying cry which it would be treachery in us to neglect thai the memory of our lamented Harrison will never be protected by his friends in his beloved Indiana if they permit his bitter enemies to represent them in Congress and now we urge you by Evory principle which should bind you to your country that you should with one heart rally to the polls on hip monday the third Day of 3iay, a Friend writes us from Johnson county that the Van Buren party have their travelling agents Busy in that part of the District. We can hear of them in every county. Our friends should a Rouse themselves. Our opponents Are secretly and stealthily using every exertion and straining every nerve to secure their Success. They Are Well drilled and artful and to successfully contend against them requires Active and zealous exertion. Since the article in another column was put in Type we received information that Nathan b. Palmer left town yesterday morning in com Pany with a Well known Van lives in an adjoining county or. P. Of course has gone on an electioneering tour. Of this we Are glad. Wallace has nothing to lose by Palmer s mixing with the people. A. Kennedy a Van Buven abolitionist is a candidate for Congress from the fifth District. He was for several years a member of tiie Indiana Senate where he distinguished himself As a blackguard of the first water. M Carty Smith and test whigs Are still candidates and intend to remain so. With a majority of 4,000 in that District it would be shameful that such a worthless and slanderous character As is Andrew Kennedy should be elected. If the whigs do permit his election it will take years of penitence and rectitude on their part to wipe out the disgrace. The prices of produce and wages. From these runners you hear nothing of or. Palmers decided oppose Oato a repeal of the sub trea sury syst min Wichich Ive defy them to contradict. You hear nothing from them of or. Palmer s decided hostility to the distribution of the proceeds of the Public lands according to the Liberal provisions of or. Clay s land Bill which Ive defy them to contradict. You hear nothing from them about or. Palmer s uncompromising hostility to the lamented Harrison while a candidate for the presidency of his slanders in your respective townships and by sustaining jd>av5i> , the Early Friend of our beloved Harrison fulfil his dying request Quot Luish the True principles of the government to he understood i wish them carried out i Ash no More there is danger if any Harrison Man stays at Home be on your guard against deception i unless every whig does his duty every Eibrt of our late election May prove in vain. Locopo Chism May again Triumph and our country hurry on to destruction and utter ruin. But one fire More and the Day is ours and Ivhon Ivill i withhold his Firel against that venerated Patriot Defrees an excellent and talented member of the late House of representatives has been nominated by the whigs of st. Joseph county for re election. He had no opposition before the convention. His abuse of that Gallant Soldier the first governor of Indiana her protector and Benefactor. All this we defy them to contradict. On the contrary you will hear from or. Palmer s partisan runners one of whom is his relative a that there is now no party question and that the Liberal i whigs of Indianapolis Ivill Dole Buren Man who Yor or. Palmer and other similar falsehoods while such is the music by which Tho a would Charm you to the support of their Van Buren sub Treasury candidate Here the Tunc played is different their Eifort Here is to Lull the whigs to sleep by the soft Lullaby that there is no Hope of electing Palmer a that Wallace will easily he elected and that they do not expect at All to succeed it is thus they attempt to throw the Harrison party of it James Saunders has received the nomination by the whigs for representative from Decatur county. R7= Howard has been nominated a candidate for representative by the whigs of Switzerland county. A fast general Harrison. Judge Hall in his life of our late Iii nested president says that when in command of the North Western army he was Monkin Active Prpa rations for a descent upon Canada. Quot the 9th of sept Niber find been appointed by the president at the request of Congress As a Day of humiliation and prayer and filth As religion is usually respected in armies this Day was observed with decorum by All. And employed by Many in exercises of sincere what Influent a this Day of rest and Devotion had in promoting the Victory pained a few after Over Proctor Nind Liis Indian allies might a fwd Subjict of curious speculation. At All hazards this impressive duty was not neglected Bitner by Washington or Harrison and after its performance the inscrutable result ? coins melted to the hands of North a Merit an. Their guard. We now earnestly remind every Harrison Man of this District that under this double dealing policy of the Locopo co party is hidden a Resolute Effort to beat us in this election that Nathan b. Palmer is so Well known Here As the decided political enemy of the lamented Harrison that not one whig in this Vicinity As we believe who cast his vote last fall for the beloved Harrison will now undo that work by voting for his bitter opponent Nathan b.

Washington april 14, 1341. No act in general Harrison s administration perhaps nothing connected with his Public life Imore strongly Stii blushes his claims to the respect of tie american people nor will Call Forth Teater applause i rum the Imp Arii in historian than the great measure adopted for prohibiting the interference of Federal officers in election is. The circular from the department of slate Manifest Ltd the determination of the whig Cabinet to exert the just a a Owers of the sex ii Livo for the accomplishment of an object which the whigs in Congress when out of Power had for years vainly to bring about by legislative enactment. The i friends of our free have seen with pleasure from the addres of president thu that he is equally determined to carry our tiie principles of the circular Hyall like Means the Constitution places in his viands and also to Quot invoke the action of Congress on the this is not Mere Ial a. It is not the Mere a Jacial trickery so often restarted a under the last two administrations whose practices on All questions of Reform were exactly the Objio Ite of Thi in Jyro irises and professions. No a John Means whar he says. And in proof of it i May without impropriety mention the following occurrence. A few Days ago. An Over zealous Friend of a candidate for a particular Uslice while opposing very earnestly the a pretensions of his com Pei Tor urged Leaf if he should he appointed he would have to ice Ghl and would bring no Polli ical influence to the the president quickly replied Quot i no not that i shall i a a political you inny i Jia Ino How the importunate solicitor was dashed by this rebuke. This then is to be the established policy of John Toleu it is unquestionably a great measure of Reform. It Puis a Stop to the habitual violation of the elective franchise by of Accra of government which under Jackson and Van Buren had Onnon into a sys Levi. It leaves the people to the free and Independent exercise of their riyals us voters uninfluenced by corruption unreduced by bribery unwed by intimidation and out of the reach of tie thousand elect Iii eerily arts and appliances Wirich were so much in use by the captains of the oficial train bands. The people in Short Are to be shielded in their elections from the oppression and encroachments of those Powers and influences we Iii belong necessarily to official station. Now let u8 look to some of the effects of this policy. One of the immediate results must be to bring into the front rank cof Active politicians a class of men very different from those who during the two last administrations have appeared there. Gen. Jackson and Martin Van Buren relied on their paid officers and paid troops on tie discipline activity tactics and obedience of the corps of office holders and office seekers to carry them tii rough. The custom houses the Post offices land offices and in some cases the u. States judiciary judges and District attorneys furnished the most Busy and indefatigable election i ers that were seen any where during every Campaign. Titis Reliance is broken up now absolutely and entirely. The present administration Lias voluntarily deprived itself of these mercenary services and president Tyler has officially proclaimed that he places on the patriotism and intelligence of the people his Only sure Reliance. We Are then no longer to have a government Man fac oily of Public opinion carried on through the Otti cers and agents of the Cabinet at Washington. The people will Tuke the management of their elections into their own hands and in proportion is the influence of tiie Offick holders a a Are invested by executive favor or Power with certain authority or prerogative is subdued will the proper influence of others whose talents disinterestedness and patriotism have secured for Thoni the Confidence of the people be increased and rendered More and More Bene principles and measures of the government without the Hazard of having the Arn Zuments on the one Side or the other voted up or voted Down at the polls by a disciplined army without argument or without principle. Public speakers and Public writers themselves a portion of the people the conductors of the free press of the land and Trio candidates in popular elections who Are Public men to Dav but to Morrow mingle in the ranks of their fellow citizens these a ill become the advocates and organs of opinion. What a change will this bring about in our system and our Vii Ole administrative policy. Statesmen henceforth will have to look not to an army of Collar men for sustaining them but to the people the meshes and to those whose intelligence Active dispositions and talents As Public speakers and Public writers or counsellors in political affairs have Given them prominence and gained for them the con licence of their fellow citizens. These being brought into constant and immediate Intercourse with the people representing their opinions and feelings and authorized to declare the wishes and deter nations of the people will be the men of real consequence in the state. Tic elect will be to secure to All who take an interest in Public affairs their proper f Hare of influence. The ardent Active energetic and High principled aspirants to the Sui ranges of a free people will nor need my suggestions to indicate How High is the p is Ilion on which this policy of a True reforming government places be a. Nor to our friends and Brethren of the Public press is it necessary to say much in order to impress them with the Tampori Anceo the station they pc Cupy. Their Powers and responsibilities were never better described than by the most distinguished member of the present Cabinet. Quot in All popular governments a free press is the most important of All agents and instruments. It not Only expresses Public opinion but to a very great degree it contributes to form that opinion. It is an engine fur Good or fur evil As it May be directed but yet an engine of which nothing can resist the Force. The conductors of the Public press in popular governments occupy a place in the political and social system of the very highest consequence. They Wear tie character of Public instructors. Their daily labors Bear directly on the intelligence the morals the taste and the Public spirit of the country. They discuss principles they comment on measures they canvass characters. They hold a Power Over the reputation the feelings the happiness of individuals. The Public ear is always open to their addresses the Public sympathy easily made responsive to their sentiments. Theirs is the Only profession expressly guarded and protected by constitutional their employment soars so High in its general consequence so it is so intimately connected Voith the Public happiness that its Security is provided fur by the fundamental Law. While it acts in a manner worthy of this distinction the press is a Fountain of Light and a source of glad Dening warmth. It instructs the Public mind and animates the spirit of patriotism. Its loud voice. Suppresses every thing which would raise itself against the Public Liberty and its blasting rebuke causes incipient despotism to perish in the Bud Quot speech of or. Webster at Worcester these Are the attributes of a free press. May its Active conductors appreciate their position and True strength under the policy to which i have referred tiie subject invites to further reflection but i have not time nor room to pursue it. D. Very late from Texas.

The steamship new Kcjr arrived yesterday in 30 hours from Galveston. We received our regular files of a ers to the 7th from Galveston but they contain Little news of interest. Tie late flare up about a mexican invasion l As subsided later information showing clearly a that Uliey luvs previously Learned from new Orleans that Arista was possessed of Force barely sufficient to repel the invasions of the Comanche indians. And fur Tiger inform us that Olli Cial intelligence had reached the government that the san Bernard icons about to leave a Heston for Vera Cruz with the commissioners to treat with the mexican government for a permanent peace. President Lamar has issued a proclamation authorizing the introduction through the texan custom ii ouse of French wines imported in French vessels free of duty. The Houston morning Star has Learned that twelve americans were taken prisoners not loner since by a party of mexicans near the Rio Grande that they were taken into Matamoras and were shot by order of the authorities of that place. The Star thinks that these americans so styled were a part of a numerous gang of Quot cattle thieves Quot that infest the West and that the punishment is justly inflicted. The paper adds that these roving robbers Are the greatest curse to Bot ii countries that could easily be invented. Not Content with stealing horse and cattle those outlaws commit outrages upon in offending inti Abilanes and in effect Brcik up the Trade by tween the two countries which would be very considerable were it not fur the Lawless in red Lions of these Quot cow boys As they Are . Presided at the White House during the general s Brief other is the son of the general s eldest Sony now dead and his Mother is the Only child of general Pike. General Harrison had a Peculiar attachment to this spirited boy. He spoke of him always with the greatest fondness and Pride. The youth is eager to follow the profession of arms. He feels the blood of his two illustrious grand fathers stirring at his heart. It was the wish of general Harrison that he should receive the advantages of a military education at West Point and in connection with this object of his heart i May mention the following anecdote As illustrative of the Good nature which characterized the Intercourse Between general Harrison and or. Van Buren during the Brief sojourn of the former Here previous to the inauguration. At their first interview after a conversation distinguished by great Good humor on the part of Al or. Van Buren and More than his usual vivacity on the part of general Harrison the latter said Quot or. President i have a favor to ask you. There is a grandson of my Gallant Friend general Pike who is desirous of being placed at West Point. Pie has nothing on Earth left him but his grand lathers sword. He is also a grand son of mine and As i have never appointed any relative to any place i wish you to relieve me and Send l in to the Iii Mitory Mica Demy or. Van Buren promptly replied that it would give him Peculiar pleasure to do so. But it was found that the youth lacked some months of the age required by the regulations of the department. The plan was incr before frustrated. The Public will rejoice to learn that or. Bell intends to carry out the wishes of the president in this matter. Gen. Harrison and judge Burnet. At the meeting of the committee in Cincinnati to agree upon suitable measures to express the Public feelings on the Mclan Chudy occasion of Gen. Hakimji son s death a motion was made and unanimously adopted that judge Burnet be requested to deliver the Eulogy upon the late president. The judge was present being chairman of the committee. He declined the request and Quot never Quot says the Cincinnati Republican Quot did we witness deeper feeling or listen to truer eloquence than in the remarks he Quot i Quot cannot accept Quot said he "1 could not speak. I knew Quot Garetson forty six years ago he was a brother to Quot me then we have been Brothers Ever since our Quot hearts were knit together and i would choke were Quot i to attempt to speak of him.

Glitch a German author lately died in Vienna leaving a Fortune of $110.000, gained entirely by his pen.

He left an Only daughter a Singer in one of the unconscionable richest sover Eicens in Europe no Louis Phillippe of France the elector of Hesse and the old King of Holland. Louis Phillippe is the wealthiest. His property is mid to amount to a Hundred millions of dollars. The elector of Hesse is Worth nearly As much. The personal property of the King of Holland amounts to nearly fifty mullions. Duty of the whig party. The great whig party of the nation have achieved a Victory worthy of themselves worthy of their principles worthy of the nation. The benefits to result from a change of the first officers of the government can Only be Felt when the principles upon which that change has been wrought have been made to take the place of those upon which the government has been administered for twelve years past. We however Call the attention of our political friends to a fact eminently worthy of their regard one which should arrest their attention at once and induce them to action quite within their Power. To allude to the prompt Steps of the Defeated party to rally their forces and prepare for a new contest with them. The sentiment of or. Crawford after the inauguration of John Quincy Adams has no weight Quot the new administration a let them be tried by their the opposition know of no such idea on the contrary they seem to adopt the views of col. Johnson expressed about the same time with Crawford s though at a different place Quot Quot the new administration must be put Down though it were As pure As the Angels that stand at the right hand that was the ruling motto of the Defeated party a Hen and the Flag Titus course thus designated led to the defeat of an administration which possessed All the Good qualities that could Ever be desired in a National administration in this country excepting the Quality of perpetuation the Means for that were neglected and the consequences were As Plain As they were lamentable. The knowledge that Gen. Harrison had received a majority of the electoral votes or rather that he would receive such a majority for the assembling and acting of the several state colleges of electors were not waited for was no sooner abroad than the party that had sustained defeat gave evidences of a determination to gather strength in if not Rorn their fall and to make their discomfiture the occasion of a closer combination and stricter discipline. They showed at any rate that they thought themselves right or if not that there was enough of principle in them to Reward exertion. The inauguration of the new president was not allowed to take place before the Defeated chief magistrate heard his name mentioned As the rallying word of a new canvass and he received from his partisans at a distance evidences not Only of personal regard but also what under existing circumstances must have been yet More Gratifying if not consoling under defeat proofs Viz that he party was ready prepared to avenge their discomfiture and to present an unbroken even though a minority front to the enemies in Power. There has not been made since the 4th of this month by Van Buren men of note or any Van Buren paper that we have noticed any expression of a desire to judge the administration by its acts. No one has thought it Worth while to cover determined hostility with the thin veil of assumed propriety but As if party Triumph was indeed As it has been made by them infinitely Superior to National Prosperity and the men who administer of More consequence than the principles administered the Defeated party avow themselves at once antagonists to the men in Power and hostile to them and their measures whatever they May be. The Globe caught sight of the inaugural address of general Harrison and denounced it As tiie product of Daniel Webster it was condemned for the strength of argument and the Force of principles which such a Man infuses into whatever he writes or Speaks. Other Loco Foco papers denounce the inaugural at once As weak the feeble production of feeble it is the composition of general Harrison and must be condemned right or wrong Strong or weak web Sterian or Harrison Ian it must be denounced the administration must be put Down Power must be reached and therefore every emanation from the Cabinet or Cabinet officers must be denounced. It is denounced and on All hands the denouncing party Are settling to a Centre gathering Powers and calling Back imphers. The whigs who have elected Gen. Harrison of course see these things. Are they resting in the shout of Victory what is a Victory Worth that May be wrested from the grasp at any moment by the strength of the Decca Tell that which is worthy of sacrifice to obtain must be worthy of vigilance to guard. The people have placed Power in the hands of new officers these officers and the people must retain tie Power where it u. S. Gaz. The right Way of publish the following fur general information.

An incident in the life of a christain.�?v7e\ehrti that in the course of a Sermon delivered on sunday last by the Rev. Or.

An the Steamboat was about leaving Wheeling crowded with passengers a heartless Man observed that he regarded the president s death As a Public remark startled those who heard it and for a time deep silence was the Only answer which was made. At length a Man venerable in appearance and years with a voice stifled with grief said that such Wanton levity was not consistent with a True american and that he would not travel Voith any one who could so speak. All the passengers concurred in this opinion and the heartless wretch was ordered on Shore As being unfit to associate with Cin. Rep. From the Albany evening journal. The Torch Light Neve and most imposing part of the obsequies in Honor of the illustrious dead took place on saturday evening. It was arranged under the auspices and direction of the firemen of Albany Ever ready at the Call of duty or patriotism. The procession was composed of the members of the different companies in their firemen s dress accompanied by a full band of music and bearing the funeral urn covered with its pall the whole illuminated by the Light of upwards of600 torches. It passed through the principal streets of the cite Between 8 and 10 o clock. The night was still and very dark and the effect produced by the Long array of mourners at that unusual hours the funeral emblems the solemn music and the Strong red Glare of the torches revealing from the gloom and lighting up with picturesque effect the houses and crowds of spectators which thronged the windows As they parsed left an impression which will not soon be effaced from the memory of those who beheld the striking and effective testimonial of the grief of the people for the lamented Harrison fitly closed the week which the tidings of his death had rendered indeed a period of heaviness and mourning
