Titty have had an opportunity, of hue, to ascertain tho precarhmmo, without, perhaps, wholly conceiving the insignifleenee, of the fieigtt market, fur the sake of which Locofo -coisra would have themtmcriSco their own loiter customers at homo. In year of general dearth throughout Europe, with absolute famine in Ireland and Scotland, the whole foreign demand fur the year ending August 31, 1847, was sauced with 4174.000 bushels of American groin, of which about Urty and half millions were wheat and nmiz in nearly equal proportions. Bnt lat'go ns thi quantity soonis, what did it amount iu, compared with the whole crop of wheat and maize of tho United State, limited by Mr. Burke, the Commissioner of Patent, at of bushels. The entire export to famished Europe was only about six per cent of the crop! No the possession of power. A few more efforts and Gen. Taylor-will be the next President; Shall these efforts be wanting? THE REVOLUTION IN PENNSYLVANIA. GLORioUS. No one need surprised at the signal re vo-lutirsn which has taken place in Pennsylvania. It is the legitimate result of the gross deception practiced upon a confiding daring the last election in relation to their most important interests, bringing upon tho deceivers a retribution as deserved as it is complete. "Polk, Dallas and the Tariff of M2" was the cry which was shouted throughout her borders, to deceive the hard working men whose labor wos not for the spoils of office, and the trick succeeded. The Whig policy was overthrown by one of the most shameless frauds ever practised upon a free people, and how could the daring and unprincipled schemers who had so tricked them, expect that in a government like this, where the people are indeed the rulers, that the punishment for such misdeeds should not follow. No wonder that in view of their sweeping indignation, Mr. Buchanan announces his intention to retire to private life at the end of the Presidential term of his master no wonder that the victims to the cheat are rising in their fierce wruth to overthrow the party in power. It is such lessons as these that teach fair dealing to politicians, it issuch, that make them beware of trifling with those great interests, for mere party purposes, which lie at the foundation of our national prosperity. Let the Whigs every where exult and not the Whigs alone, but let every one, no matter by what name he may choose to call himself, who is not a worshipper of party, exult that the rights of the people have been vindicated in this instance, where they should be at the ballot box. Three cheers then for the hard-fisted people of Pennsylvania! -Their vengeance has been felt in the utter route of the government spoils seekers in the final prostration of' the Buchanans' and Dallas' who have sought to prostrate her at the foot of power. That gallant State will stand alongside of Tennessee in her devotion to the cause of one who will at least respect her expressed wishes, who will not be found crushing her interests beneath the iron heel of power merely to carry out party pledges. One triumph we have to shout over, at least, which should cheer the heart of every true republican a triumph which should serve as a warning to those who would hereafter attempt to deceive the people. Let every man who regards the cause of the people as opposed to political tricksters rejoice at tho result. Let. every one who sympathises in this great with the noble band which has achieved it, labor from now until the day of the election with that ardor which such a glorious result should inspire. If the "Keystone" State has been found stamping the leaders of Modern Democracy as unworthy, what shall be, expected of Tennessee, which did not approve in the ou of the election of James K. Polk? VIGILANCE IS NECESSARY. The Whigs should see that no mixed tickets1 are brought forward, designed to cheat the voter. This is a matter of great importance, and it should be carefully guarded against. The men who have provided two lives of Gen. Cass to deceive the people of different sections of the confederacy, will not stand upon trifles in the effort to elevate their candidate. Let the Whigs at every precinct look to this. A "POLISHED MAN!" The Union of yesterday, publishes a letter from Gov. Gilmer, of Georgia, to "the Democratic meeting at Eatonton" in which he tells these gentlemen that "the country requires a POLISHED MAN and a courteous, wise counsellor for President." Then if this is the case we say to the hard fisted men of the nation ly till means elect Lewis Cass! He has been polished by rubbing against royalty at the Court of France sufficiently to sutisfy the most scrupulous, and this "polish" has not been taken off of him by sleeping on the ground in. the swamps of Florida, the mud of the Rio Grande, or by being in contact with the "Rough" fellows, Kentuckians, Tennes-seans, Suckers or "Rackensackers" who, literally sans culottes fought with the old fellow in Mexico. This is "piling up the agony" on the part of the Democratic leaders! Old Zack won't do because he is not "polished" because "hehas been out of society!" Well, the farmers and others can do as they like about getting a "polished man" it is a very grave objection to the old soldier we must confess, and we hope it will be duly considered at the polls. A. Funny Pcati'oriii. Here are two planks from the Buffalo platform, oa which Mr. Vail Buren and Mr. C. F. Adams are striving so hard to stand side by side: importance of the mighty struggle going for-! ward in regard to the first office in the gift of the people? the first office; in importance in the known world one upon which the friends of free principles every where look with eager expectation as that which must secure untold blessings if rightly administered, to this and after ages, or which, corruptly managed, must destroy the hopes of unnumbered millions who look to this country as the beacon light of freedom lo the whole earth. Are the Whigs a-roused to the consideration of its vast importance? Do they reflect that in less than two weeks from this t'me the great battle will have been fought which must give us one of the purest patriots of the age for onr Chief Mag istrate, or which must saddle upon us once more a mere cold blooded politician, one whose chief business for the next four yearn will be, if elected, to perpetuate his power by provid ing for his own re-election or the elevation of such a successor as he may designate, whilst the interests of tho people ore made subservient to such a result. Who, in view of this, can tell the importance of this momentous struggle? Who does not see, after the plain manifestations of the past few months, that if the stupendous wrongs perpetrated by the present Administration against the rights of the people go unrebuked if the patronage of the Presidential office is to be in future brought to bear upon the freedom of elections, and the people permit it, that their boasted liberties exist only at the nod of the Federal Executive, who may by means of the public money distributed through his partizans, call at any time a sufficient force of office-holders and their followers into the field to defeat the expressed wishes of the real people! This is no day dream. The people have seen the patronage of the Genera Government openly brought forward in the present canvass, the officeholders appointed by the President shamelessly electioneering for the men who are proclaimed as his favorites! Who, of the real people are ready to permit this? Where is the jealousy in regHrd to their rights, which should cause every true freeman to rally against such an abominable perversion of the power of the Federal government? We cannot believe that the American people will knowingly submit to such an outrage, no matter by whom sanctioned, we cannot but hope that when the opportunity is offered them to give it their condemnation, they will seize it with alacrity and by their solemn declaration, forever put an end to the corruption which is acting as a canker in the destruction of ail that is valuable in a free government. These considerations, alone, are amply suf ficient to call for a change in the government of the country. The people want at least a pure government one whose whole aim and policy will not be to make it the instrument of defeating their wishes, and perpetuating its own gross abuses. And now is the time to act, in regard to this matter. All other questions of polity, merely, are completely subordinate to this. There is no mistaking its importance. We are to learn by the result of this great bat tle, whether the people after the experience of more than half a century in the blessings of a free government, and with the warnings of the patriots of the revolution, the-founders of their free institutions ringing in their ears, to beware of the encroachments of power, we are now to learn whether these warnings are heeded, and they prepared to protect their rights, aware as they ought now to be that "power is always stealing from the many tothefew!" If they submit, they must do it after ample warning. If they yield to the arts of demagogues, and permit them to usurp their privileges, the fault is plainly their own. The Federal Executive, we will do him the justice to say, has not disguised the matter. He has taken his stand in favor of his successor with entire boldness first by his letter to the Baltimore Convention sanctioning tho nomintitioh of Gen. Cass, and later, by permitting the office holders in sight of the White House to leave their official duties to battle for his elevation. More than that. He has been seen displacing such men as B. F-Butler, because the latter went for Van whilst no rebuke has been extended to Mr. Auditor McCalln, Hon. Edmund Burke or other officials, for the shameless neglect of their public duties. We say then, in view of all this that if the people now neglect to visit upon these officials the penalty of their misdeeds, we have little to hope for in the way of a pure government in future. The wrongs perpetrated have been open palpable as the lightof day, such as to alarm the most careless, to arouse the most inert. With the election of Old Zack who owes these cormorants nothing, we have hopes that these shameless abuses will be corrected, these evils avoided in future. Let trade languish and the country may by industry still retrieve its suffering interests let the nation be involved in debt, and economy and care may suffice to bring it out of its difficul ties; but with corruption gnawing at its vitals, and the public servants plotting how they may best defeat tha wishes of the people in order to hand down the power they have in possession who shall boast of his rights as a freeman who shall say that he is free, except in name. Let the people then come forward in solid phalanx for the man who has no part nor lot with the political tricksters of the present day who is abused, by them because he will not lend himself to their vile schemes for retaining their power to plunder the public treasury. It is emphatically the cause of the people against the office holders, and it should be maintained with a determination which will insure a right Let all then stand to their guns. The cause is a glorious one worthy of all our energies, worthy of any set of men who ever battled for freedom upon the face of the wide earth. To the gallant Whigs if Tennessee, such a cause cannot appeal in "-t T'kinr ipsniaArt ttlo itintoflnn n( They have despised thi dictation of -r in ornnn tlio.r wilt Jame. they mus re, in the present struggle, a final verdict again! readiness to belli who lias shown ins who has shown thaFn Int0 tfce I)ower of 0Qe rights of the South-foare3 for the Greaf West, or for.auy thing; lmerest of lhe 'on, but for U'CKrUCTIUN IN The Mt-iMi q'Hfie iroin a intiriH'iites newspaper inj.

It was necessary to resort to armed force, and tho soldiers of the next post were called in to put down the barricade, and bring to reason these eighty furies. A parley was attempted first, in order not to give too fata! a turn to this unjustifiable insurrection. Nothing could bo hsard but the yells of theso demoniac, tha noise of tbo broken windows and chamber vosos. In a few rr.nmonin the hall was hoapod with ruins of the furniture.

The universul success which has attended the introduction of Dr. CHEISXIE'S GAI.VANO-MAG-NETIO REMEDIES in the United Suites, it is believed is wiihout example in tho annals of Popular Medicine. A great deal of natural prejudice had to bo cornbatted, nnd the general distrust attendant upon any now discoveiy to bo subdued; but amid these difficulties, the articles havo been constantly advancing in favor, nnd for the simple reason, that THEV HAVE BEEN UNVEHSALLY SUCCESSFUL, WHENEVER THEY HAVE BEEN PROPERLY AND FAITHFULLY TRIED.

Let the Whigs remember these cheering words which reassured The gallant men who fotjght the battle of Buena Vista, in the darkest honr of that memorable fight let them not forget that the same gallant veteran, whose presence turned the tide of hattle then, is with them, and for them in the struggle now. The conflict now is one in which even greater in. teresta, if possible, are endangered, although we may take into consideration the valuable lives at stake, and the millions of treasure thrown by the government upon that occasion, as it were upon the "hazard of a die," the chances being five to one against them. The risk then was great; but the preservation of the Constitution unimpaired, and the rights of twenty millions of people intact rights gained by scores of battles in times long past, which are now hazarded if the party in power are continued in possession, may well cause all to regard the battle close at hand, as of the last consequence; and looking at it in this light, the cheering cry that "Old Zack's coming" may well, as at Buena Vista, encourage every man to do his utmost, and with the full assurance of a like glorious result. "A little more grape," then, and the spoilsmen will be routed "horse, foot and dragoons," and the old soldier will ride triumphantly over the last of his many battlefields. Shall he not do it? Shall the gallant old Chieftain upon whom no defeat has frowned in forty years hard service shall he even have the hazard of a defeat at the end of his brilliant career? Then rally to his side every true Whig, and there can scarce be a doubt of the result. We can win an over-wheming victory shall we not do it? We are glad to learn by the following from the. Columbia Recorder, that the monu-iuent over the remains of the distinguished Lewis is nearly completed. Tennessee has-honored herself in thus honoring the ashes of one who deserved so well of his coun try, JZW. It always a source of pleasure to notice tho efforts of man in claiming kindred with the good and great of tho past. To seize upon the virtues of the dead and make them living, acting sympathies with ourselves, ia a moral duly, which wo are glad to fieo recognized and carried out. We confess oar gratification therefore at the near completion of the monument to Meriwether Lewis, authorized to be erected by the last Legislatuie. LowSb' morlal remains now slumber in Tennessee, his name and the result of his labors belong to his country; we discharge but asim pie, yet high duty in commemorating his services, testimonials to us and. our children of what Faith, Perseverance and Fidelity may accomplish. We learn that the Committee propose placing the following beautiful and true inscription on his MERIWETHER LEWIS, Born near Charlottesville, August 18, 1774; Died, Oct. 11, 1809, aged 35 years. officer of the Regular Army Private Secretary to President Jefferson Commander of the Expedition to the Oregon Territory in 1803-1806 Governor of the Territory of Louisiana. His melancholy death occurred where this monument now stands, and under which rest. hi mortal remains. In the language of Mr. Jefferson: "His courage was undaunted; his firmness and perseverance yielded to nothing but impossibilities; a rigid -disciplinarian, yet tender as a father of those committed to his charge; honest, disinterested, liberal, with sound understandingand a scrupulous fidelity Jo truth."

The last number of the North American gives the following in relation to the late election in Pennsylvania; It is encouraging enough to inspire every true. Whig with energy. Will the Whigs of Tennessee be prepared to respond to the appeal made to them? Even at this late hour, we are not able to announce tlie result of the gubernatoral election in an authentic form; but from the evidence before us, wo wo feel justified in claiming W. F. Johnston as the Governor of Pennsylvania. Among the substantial fruits of our victory nre a Whig thereby securing a Whig U. S. Senator, a majority of Whig Congressmen and Whig State Ad mi nipt ration. This result may bo regarded as. the redemption of Pennsylvania, an achievement of vast political consequence in but of still higher importance, when it may be justly legarded as determining the Presidential election. Pennsylvania haa elected ZachakY Tat-lor President of the United State nothing now remains but to fulfil the forms of an election on the 7th day cf November. In tho face of this victory Loco-focoism cannot rally in losing Pennsylvania, it has lost its citadel, and with it all hopes of regeneration. To the honest masses, the colliers, mechanics and working men, is. the Whig party especially indebted for this triumph. In all the mining and manufacturing counties; there have been large gains among those who have been heretofore cheated into the sup port of of "Democracy" under its deceptive disguise, but who have at last awakened to a sense of their wrongs and the men by whom thev were imposed; This example will cheer the sons of toil everywhere, tor the result in, Pennsylvania is a victory ot work ing men. higs of the Union we extend to you the hand of fellowship, and all we ask for Pennsylvania, is the position which she has Avon. A Trick Mpon Stage Robbers. There have late ly been robberies of trunks from the stage running between Erie and West field. A plan was hit upon last week by Mr. S. Clarke, the ngent at the latter place, for capturing the rascals who committed the depredations. The Fredonia Censor says, that on Thursday night last as the stage was about to leave VYestheld tor the JNorth-Jiast, ununown todnveror was safely buck kid into the hind boot among the trunks, and, thus placed in ambush, he started off. The eiage had proceeded hut about a roile, and was ascending a hill, when Mr. C. felt ijome-body at work upon the straps, the act of unloosing them. This being 6nally aucomplished, and the leather top thrown up by the robbers, Clarke sprung out and seized one of them, upon which the stage passengers were alarmed and came to the rescue. In the meantime, tho other freebooters look to their heels. The bird caught whose name is Dwight Onloy, (of Westfieid,) was then taken to Westfield, and on Saturday was arraigned on two charges: 1st, of having stolen trunks from the smgr: nt previous tmm, and 2d, for lie last at! a mpt 1 rohtery. On tho tec charge lira wa committed for trial, and bound pver in the sum of $1000. Troy Whig. FOB THE iOlSTBICTS. St. 2i. 3d. 4tii. Stti. tkb. Thoa. A. R. Nelson, Albert G. Watkiis, Kceso B.

It will be much the safest and most convenient for the Whigs to use printed tickets at the coming election, and to have them time and a plenty of them. They can be had at the Whig offices in this city at fifty cents a thousand; or they will he furnished without charge whenever it is desired. Our Whig friends in the different counties round about Nashville will do well to procure supplies of tickets from this place without delay. ALABAMA. A correspondent of the Augusta Chronicle says that "Mr C. G. Rives who was secretary to a Cass meeting in July, and a Cass sub-elector for the 3rd District in Alabama, after battling a while, has declined his post and come ijut for Taylor and Fillmore!" OFFICIAL VOTE OF GEORGIA. The Augusta Ga. Chronicle of the 18th says: "The official vote in all the counties but Appling, in the late Congressional election, show a demoeratic majority of 243. Appling is 'reported 8 democratic majority." LET THE WHIGS RALLY. The time has come now it cannot longer be postponed, for the counties to reckon up every available vote which can be made to tell -for the Whig ticket. Let every true Whig be on ihe alert to induce all to come-to the polls. Find out just what each precinct can do, and let none be wanting at the polls on the day of ihe election. This is of the last im-. poitunee. The other party is well organized and ore sparing no efforts it is for every Whig to aid in meeting them in full array. Let all come up to the work. PROVIDE CONVEYANCES FOR THE OLD MEN. It is for tho young and active men of the "Whig party to see that no means shall be 1 -wanting to enable the old men to be at the polls. Many a veteran in the Whig cause who may, from infirmity, be unable to mount a horse to ride to the polls, would probably go if provided with a seat in a vehicle. Let the 'young rin look around in time to see if there are liny and see that they are provided for. Many may thus be saved to the soldier, the Whig pany dfJ, lighli to honor. HAVE YOUR READy. Let every-point be well wi(h iets, that nothing may be of ammunition to give the new "North Juan with Southern principles" a real Bnena battering on the day of the election. Bo no. put off this matter. Have them printed promptly, end see that every name is correct. Remember that tho name of one of the Electors, Reese B. Brabson, has been wrongly inserted in many of the Whig papers, as Reese M. Brabson. This must be corrected, that every shot may tell. Have them provided in ubundunce, if you would reap tho 'trait of all your' labors iu the ptescut canvass. Xi-nity onco more of addressing bis friend in behalf of the imraorUi! old Rough ami Ready, aad the glorious Whig party. When "the noise and confusion' had ceued, Col. Peyton arose with a dignified and commanding manner which at once gained the attention of the audience, and having made a few preliminaries, ha then proceeded to draw with a masterly hand the lines of demarkation between the two great parties of the day, Whig and Democmtic, they ar rogantly style themselves. And with his powerful and thrilling eloquence, strong reasoning, and ill us-trative facts, he most clearly showed that thn Demor cratic party had entirely abandoned their former principles, principles advocated by tho great Jefferson, Jackson, and are left the only alternative of bolstering themselves up on a rickety platform, composed perhaps partly of the rotten fragments of the one erected in '37 for the little red fox Van, (now the black fox.) Col. P. spoko nearly three hours, during which ho completely enchained the attention of the 'audience. Ho would at one time amuse and delight with his well-told and appropriate anecdotes, then almost instantaneously as with an electric shock, cause the bosom of the patriot and devotee of liberty to thrill with feelings of mingled emotions by foreshadowing the awful consequences if the illustrious Taylor was not in November placed at the helm of affairs, nnd with his invincible urm and statesmanlike wisdom to stay the tempestuous billows of the political ocean, upon which is tossed to and fro the great- ship of Stale, and thus anchor it firmly upon the solid basis of the constitution from which it has been wrenched by a corrupt administiatton, by a clique of vile demagogues and office holders, some- of whom would willingly see liberties of the i-cople verted, the government scattered in fragments to the winds in order that they might ravenously prey upon its spoils, or who wish to become immortal, like tho knave who set firo to the magni6cent Temple of the Goddess Diana. Col. P. afterdiscussing fairly and ably iho various important topics of the and completely analysing the mystic character of Lewis C. witfy the exception of. one thing, and that was, he could'nt tell what had become of that singular change that was going on inhis mind, concluded with a beautiful eulogy upon old Rough and Heady, and took his seatnmid enthusiastic cheers, by thanking the audi-onco for their kind and pulite attention. Col. Guild then took the stand and commenced saying something about Col. tirade of abuse heaped upon tho democratic party, and just about that time the greater portion of the sensible folks left. The prospects everywhere are bright and cheering. Hurra for old Zack! A TAYLOR WHIG. For ike Republican Banner. GENERAL TAYLOR No. 4. Mr. Editor. The time is now close at hand when the citizens. of Tennessee, and of the Mother States of tho American Union, will have to elect a President of the United States. And it may be Bafely affirmed that at no period in our history has there been grcater cause for every man, to attend the polls and give his vote for a patriot, one who regards his country and its free institutions far above parly. A man who has been in his country's service nearly half a century who has at all-times and on all occasions done his duty who has distinguished himself in war whose brilliant achievements equal those of any country, in ancient or modern times and whose character cannot bo honestly impeached. That man is General Zach-Aky Taylor. The Whigs will generally give him their support, and frum various indications he will receive a large number of Democratic voles. Gen. Taylor is certainly the very man for the times, Ho. is firm and consistent; sound on the slave ques tion; and we do not hear of his changing his posi tion like Gen. Cass, to obtain votes. He is farabove such low trickery. He stands upon tho elevated and broad j'latform of Washington, Monroe and Jefferson, and other great apostles of liberty. He has published his opinions and principles to the world. He has nothing to conceal. Should he be elected President and of this there cannot be a reasonable doubt, our country wiU agai'rt prosper. The arts of peace will be cultivated; the rights of other nations duly respected our country will not be again involved in war, for parly purposes- Let us all unite arid give our votes to the man who has never deceived us, and whose uniform conduct proves him to be incapable of deception; The Democratic candidates for the Presidency, Gen. Cbbs and Martin Van Buren, are about equal It is uncertain which would prove the greatest curse to the country. Their principles are well understood and are known to be opposed to the South. Van Buren has come out boldly, and Coss, in order to get bur votes, says, his mind is undergoing a change! Every man who has a sane mind, knows why this pretended change is operating upon the mind of" Gen. He has' all his life been a hot abolitionist, and will ever remain one. He is too dangerous for the South to meddle with. He changed from his an cient Federalism to obtain office under a Republican President. And Hko the majority of the Democratic party, he will change again whenever his interest requires in. Look at tho changes in Tennessee. The great champion of Modern Democracy, A. V. Birown, has cut somerset in regard to Gen. Taylor; also many other distinguished members of that party. They publicly proclaimed to the world that Tay lor was the very man, well qualified for President that no man wl.s his equal. When Gen. Taylor said Iituviua Whig, these, great Democratic champions denounced him as unqualified for any office! And tliev sre now canvassing the State against Gen. Taylor, and in favor of a Northern Abolitionist and old bluelight Federalist! They well understand the principles of Gen. Cass. Bnt they care-not for principles. That pat ty is laboring for office. Those in high offices dread Gen. Taylor; they know him to be an honest man, nnd if elected President they might bo removed, as Gov. Jones haa said, "for righteousness sake." Thodewhoave laboriag so hard in Tennessee, smothering their conscience and their reason in public speaking, nre many of them no doubt expectants of office. Their aim is the loaves and fishes. They have no thought for the good the country if they had, they certainly would no: be found advocat-; ing the claims of a man who during a long life has been a rabid Abolitionist. Every common observer can plainly see, that the leaders of this self-styled Democratic party have uniformly, since the administration of Gen- Jackson, been changing and dodging, and humbugging tho people. Their bold assertions about the Tariff of 1846 that the high price of grain was caused by this Tariff, when every school boy in the country knew that the Famine in Europe was the only cause this should be sufficient to satisfy every impartial person, thut with the Democratic party jits-tifies the means." We now have it in our power to "expef- the Vaitr dais from Rome-'' If we fail lo do so, it is our own fault. I solemnly appeal to the Whigs of Tea- wonder tuat ivir. tsut kc, speauing ot tins -aspoit, (and making the dioll mistake, for a free tmdo Locofm-a office-holder, of admitting tho inadequacy uf tho demand Vfhilo exulting over the superabundance of the supply,) declined that 'thU hirgo quantity sent to foreign countries, did not exhaust, our surplus products by millions ol bushels." During the very year when American farmers disposed of six nor cent of their grain to starving Europe, they sold more than thirty per cent of it lo their own countrymen, me chanica and manufacturers and merchants and laborers of iho towns and cities nt home; and now that Europe needs more of it, or so little as to be of small account, it la their own countrymen, as above, upon whom they rely, and upon whom or.lj they can roly, as the purchasers of their surplus. We may get an idea of the value of the great Home Market by computing the average sums puid to tho venders of food for the weekly markftring of any considerable town or city. Such a cumpuiulion ought, of course, "oembraco meat and bread, as wsll as butter, vegetables, etc; and as it would be framed in viw of the consumption of country product genernlty, an allowance ought to be made fur the value of the outs and hay consumed by tha horses in town. Extending the estimate in this way, it will bo considered within moderation to calculate thut every family of fuur persons in a cityas in Philadelphia- will expend $5 a week for maketing, including bread, as above. Nowthu populntion of Philadelphia, is, in round numbers, at least 300,000 souls, making 75,000 families, who will pay in bard cash 375,000 dollars a week, equal to the pretty sum of 19,500,000 "dollars a.year, nearly all of which goes intuthu pockets of the farmers. Sweep Philadelphia out of existence, and what a loss at once to the thousand who live by fuipplying Philadelphia witli fond! And yet 3'hiludclphia ii hut one city out of many, and her people form but a very small proportion of the town population of tho United States, the consumers of food, who art bo much, move important to Amevicmi cultivators, as customers than all the rest of the eight hundred or a thousand millions of the human family dwelling out of tho United States. Steamboat Pinky Woods Burnt. Wo learn from Mr. Win. Marlatt, a passenger on board, that on the afternoon of Friday last, tho steamer Pincy ooda, Capt. Pny towine, on her passage from Springfield for tho Pontchartrain Railroad, when she was about two and a half miles from land, wai discovered to bo on fire on her starboard side under her boiler deck. She was in a few minutes enveloped in flames, owing to a strong head wind, which was- blowing at the time. The small boat was immediately lot down, but toon filled with water and drifted away, Tho Pincy Woods burned about four hours when she sunk. The engineer, Mr. Bradley, clung to her about one hour and a half when he was taken off by tho small boats which came from shore to the assistance of the burning vessel; several others were also picked up who wore drifting about Qn pieces of planks. Mr. i Duncan, merchant of Springfield, was picked up drowned. Tho names pf thoso saved aro Mr. Marlatt, and one passenger unknown; Mr. Bradley, engineer; the captain, a cabin boy, and a small boy about eight years old, belonging to a family among tbie passengers. Ho had been drifting or swimming on tho surface of the water alone nearly two hours, and was heard crying out until he was rescued. Two negro boys belonging to the boat wore also saved. Those lost consist of a man supposed to bo named Brown from St. Louis, who had with him a number of telegraphic two families, consisting of one gentleman, his wife, sister-in-law, two young ladies supposed to be sisters to the married ladies, and two children one about six years of age and an infant two servants of the above families; two, negro men and the chambermaid belonging to the and two persons unknown. The boat, together with lot of provisions, baggage, and ftbout fourteen baleB of cotton, was totally lost. N. O. Picayune, VSth. DESERTING IN MICHIGAN. The Philadelphia American, says "Almost evory mail brings us encouraging intelligence from the State in which the Locofoco candidate resides. There is a large anil growing defection among the masse- of tho 'Democracy in Michigan, who Know taen. Oass to have been a black cockade Federalist, -to be un aristocrat in all his political practice, and to have put on iho cloak which he now wears, only as an expedient or the hour, to bo cost asido whenever it haa served the end for which it was assumed. A meeting was held on the 29th September, at Springwells, which was addressed by, Hon. John Norvell, formerly a Democratic U. fa. Senator, and other distinguished personages, who have recanted Locofocoism, with ull its destructive doctrines. An interesting incident occurred in the courso of the proceedings, which we will relate in tho language ot the Detroit Advertiser: Alexander Davidson of Detroit, being pre sent was loudly called Mr. Davidson rose and said: "Mr. President and Gentlemen I did not come here to make a speech; but, while I nm up, I will say this much. I ever have been, am now, and, as long as I vicrshallbe, a Democrat! I never voted a Whig ticket in my life- 1 Gen.

I shall vote fur that true hearted genuine Republican Major General Zachnry Taylor ihe man who, while in the service of his country, asks of his government no favor, and shrinks from no responsibility. There are tens of thousands of honest Democrat- scattered through the country, who think and will act like Mr Davidson. Cheated by nhollow name, which uil experience has demonitruted I mean the very re vereo of what it professes to be, they are now determined to abandon the shadow, and adopt the substance of Democracy, by voting for hearted, genuine republican, "Zachary Taylor."

The citizen of Pennsylvania should remember that Lewi Cass voted fur the ree 1 rade lantt ot 1846, tho disastrous effects of which aro now becoming evident in. the closing of our iron works, the cessation of mining operations, tho fall of wages, and thg loss of labor to thousands of tho industrious poor. The Tariff passed the Senato July 28, 1340, by the following vote; Teas Allen, Ashley, Atchison, Athcrton, Bagby, Benton, Brcese, Bright, Calhoun, CASS, Chalmers, Colquitt, Dickinson, Dix, KairfeVid, Hnnnegan, Houston, Jarnagin, Lewis, McDofEe; Pennybackor, Rusk, Scrapie.

The following-, from the Baltimore Sun of the 1 4th, a Locofoco paper, affords strong reasons for hoping, if not believing, thiit the electoral vote of South Carolina wijj after olVbe cast for Gen. Taylor: The telegraph dispatch from Charleston, which' we published yestcrdRy, announcing the success of the Tfiiylor ticket for the Legislature in that city, has excited considerable attention, sueh a result having been as unexpected as the. returns received on Wednesday night from Pennsylvania. The Charleston Courier, of Saturday, publishes a statement of the probable result in that State, accompanied by a table giving the counties and delegates, from which they come to the following conclusion: "From this it appears that there are 62 votes foe Taylor, 7G for Cass, and 28 doubtful or neutral votes; if these doubtful votes be added to the 62 Taylor votes, il: will give 90 votes for Taylor, or a mnjority of 14 on. the joint ballot. And it is not. at all im-probablu that these votes will he cast for Taylor, for in some cases the question of a preference haa not been raised, and in many instances, whilst a preference has not been expressed for Taylor, the candidates sny that in no etient can they support Gen. Cass" The returns from this' quarter will therefore assume an aspect of more importance than has hitherto been the case with regard to South Carolina elections.
