THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1840.
We Ikave received a communication re
lative to saMio Van Buren management that
took place at one of die precincts on Mon
day. WetSiiailk it uinmoecssary to publish
it, as their mamuuvres availed them noth
ing. Our friemds sliould however, keep a
i strict watch on the polls at the precincts,
hereafter, and be ready to nullify their
Wilkes County Election.
Some of the Harrison party turned out
Monday last, aud amused themselves by

With a little too re than three-fourths of
the votes polled in October, we have a small
increase on the majority obtained then,
which was 87.
These continual victories are getting
very tiresome. The Harrison party are
beginning to feel like the Irish tailor who
went about begging somebody to whip him,
pleading that he was “blue moulded for
want of abating -”
05” By a letter from Milledgeville, we I
learn that a meeting of the Harrison mem
bers of the Legislature, was held on the
evening of the 3d inst. to nominate a mem

by the resignation of Judge Colquitt. At

03- A singular fact is remarked* of the I
late Presidential contest, viz: That no one
of the candidates for President or Vice Pre

but one, Gen. Harrison, of the State where
he usually resides—He lost Virginia, Mr.
Van Buren lost New York, Kentucky vo

Polk, and Georgia against Forsyth. “A

Many of the New York papers are urg
ing the propriety of dividing that State
yito two or three new and distinct States.—
The following are the reasons they offer in
favor of such a division:
1. The state is too large, and the divi
sion proposed seems to he a natural one.
t 5. The interests of these parts must con
flict, and to do justioe to one by legislation,
is to do injustice to the other.
3. Schemes of internal improvement for
which all are bound equally to pay, are of
more importance to one region than another.
4. It is desirable to have the government
as near the people as possible, so that it
not go. wrong ; and to, coniine its pow
<er as much as possible, so that if it does go
wrong, the evil may be comparatively
5. A representative from the borders of
Lake Erie is not the most proper person to
legislate for constituents dwelling on the
shores of the Atlantic ocean.
6. The dangers to be apprehended from
popular violence are less in a small state
than in a large one; in the first place, be
cause there are fewer causes to produce it,
and in the second, because the people of a
small but compact state arc more united
in interest and sympathy.

From the Milledgeville Recorder.
The subject before the Legislature, we
find, which elicits the most enquiry, is the
resumption bill. We have to inform our
readers that the bill of the House, which
compels the resumption on the Ist of Febru
ary, has not yet been passed by the Senate.
That a resumption bill will be passed this
session, there is no doubt; the only point at
aFU dfeubtful,is the exact time when this shall
take place. Some (we think the minority)
believe that the circumstances of the coun
try require that the present crop should be
realized, before the resumption, and are in
favor of postponing the day to the Ist of
July. Whether this modification of tire
bill of the House will be agreed to; we can
not say, but believe it will not be.. The
great question of resumption- we believe to
be settled by the people.. They demand!it,
and that settles the main point, right or
wrong. It seems to us-that the main ques
tion being thus determined 1 , that the few
months delay will be productive of but lit
tle good, if not of positive mischief. With
the fact before them of speedy resumption,
the Banks generally (those determined to
resume) will not put their bills- into circu
lation, and we fear the only efleet of the de
lay will be to allow the crop to be bought
with the bills of more hazardous banks,
and which may result in leaving in the
hands of the community at the time of re
sumption, bank notes of depreciated value.
Resumption being determined on, we be
lieve that the Ist of February will be a safer
day for this measure to take place, both for
the banks and for the people.
From the Savannah Republican.
The Whig press has very generally ex
pressed a decided opinion against the
scramble for office which, since the elec
tion of General Harrison, has manifested
itself in some quarters. The press in Vir
ginia, it will be seen by the following para
graphs, is equally decided on the subject :
The New York correspondent of the Na
tional Intelligencer states that “an undigni
fied and unworthy scramble for office has
already commenced” in that city. “Men
are going about getting other men to sign
their names to papers requesting Gen. Har
rison to give them such and such an office.”
We most devoutly hope that in every
such case, Gen. Harrison will reject the
applicant. This office-seeking mania is the
disgrace and curse of the country ; and we
hold that the beggars for the crumbs that
fall from the President’s table,show, by that
very circumstance, that they are mercena
ries in spirit, and unworthy the stations they
seek. They make the best officers who
stand aloof from this spaniel-like scramble
of the “spoils.”—We all recollect the host
of office-seekers by whom Gen. Jackson
was besieged when he entered Washington
City, and whom he only succeeded in dis
persing by a general notice that no man
should receive an appointment except at his
home! The Whigs have been denouncing
the spoils principle. We call upon them to
frown upon any member of the party who has
the effrontery to claim his “ reward ” —the
very best evidence he can furnish, in our
estimation, ofhis unworthiness to fill any
station.— Lynchburg Virginian.
The Richmond Whig, in copying the
foregoing paragraph, appends to it the fol
We look to Gen. Harrison with unfalter
ing confidence to put an end at once and
forever to the demoralizing office seeking
spirit, which was engendered by the ‘spoils
system’ as introduced and practised by the
reigning faction. His position will enable
him to do it, and we have faith that his in
clinations will prompt him. Let him, by
his acts, proclaim to the world that mere
partizan zeal, without capacity and estab
lished character for honesty, constitute no
passport to office. And let him, if possible,
suppress that growing passion of the age
—The eagerness to be quartered upon the
Public Treasury—to live without labor at
the public expense—a passion which is a
bane to honest industry and to good morals.
This lie can only effect by exerting his in
fluence in curtailing the offices and reduc
ing the salaries. Such a reform, while it
may excite the clamor of the interested and
disappointed, will win for him the affection
and lasting gratitude of nine-tenths of his
countrymen. Ifhe were less patriotic and
firm of purpose than he is, and if he were
looking to a re-election, he might be deter
red from pursuing this bold and noble
course ; but there is no earthly inducement
to swerve him from the path of right;—the
true, substantial and enduring welfare of
his country—the sole object of his ambition
—is all he has cause to consult. That
promoted, he may despise tho malice ofhis
enemies, and disregard the clamors of un

Vermont. —The salary of the Governor
of this State is but $750. The Secretary
of this State gets S3OO, and the Tresurer
S4OO. The members of the Senate and
House of Representatives receive, during

The Lieutenant Governor, while presiding

issues four.— Balt Sun.

The Feds affect to be vastly consoled un
der their defeat by having carried Virgin
ia. The moral weight of this Old Com
monwealth, they hope, will break their
downfall, and mitigate the odium, which
will attach to them l and'their cause. They
are welcome so all the comfort they can de
rive from such a source. But they shall
not forget, that old Virginia of revolution
ary renown, the Virginia of Washington
and Jefferson and Henry put her veto on
them and their abominations. The coun
ty of Washington voted against them, the
county of Jefferson voted against them;
and the county of Henry voted against
them ! Lower Virginia voted against them
by upwards of 2000 majority. The most
intelligent portion of Western Virginia too,
voted against them. They are indebted
for all the victory they have won, to the
patriot sages and’ illustrious statesmen of
Rockingham, Shenandoah and Page. What
consolation or moral influence victory from
such sources may afford, they are welcome
to. But they shall not claim the honor of
having received the approbation of old Vir
ginia, which is now, as she was in ’75, a
tyrant hater.— Richmond Whig.
Father against Son. —Henry W. Cush
man, of Bernardstown, Mass., a Van Bu
ren candidate for the Legislature, was in
the recent election opposed and beaten by
his own father. In such a case, let who
will beat, the office is kept in the family.
This is not quite so bad as for a son to
beat his own father—a circumstance which
occurred last year in Plymouth county,
Mass. Seth Sprague, jr., (Whig) was
elected Senator from that county over his
own father; and although, as in the other
case, the office was thus ‘kept in the family,’
yet the old gentleman is said to have re
marked that he ‘had rather been beaten by
the d—l than by his own son.’ Perhaps lie
will catch it from both.
BOSTON AND GANO.
The great match race, or rather the
great match, which “ wasjistno race at all,”
between these two lions of the day, came
off yesterday, over the Lafayette course,
and resulted in the defeat of Gano, in a
single heat. Time, 7 minutes 57 seconds.
After which he was drawn and Boston took
Although few were disappointed in the
success of Boston, yet all expected Gano to
have made a more interesting and anima
ted contest. It was evident, however, that
he was “ off his foot,” for his first heat yes
terday was not in as good time by several
seconds, as he made a heat last Spring over
the same course. Notwithstanding Boston
was the victor, it was a contest by which lie
will not add anything to his already high
reputation, for it was clear that Gano was
not able to make him run over any part of
Augusta Chronicle, Bth inst.
Condition of Mexico. —An extract of a
letter from Mexico, published in the Jour
nal of Commerce, says :
This country is very poor, and loaded
with taxes. The Mexicans are much more
acquainted with foreigners than formerly,
and don’t trouble them so much. Robbers
are plenty in the roads, and they rob the
stage from Vera Cruz to Mexico every now
and then. The Federalists have not suc
ceeded for Want of energy. The fact is,
that in this country you can find scarcely
a man to fake any interest in his country
except to rob it.”
The Cincinnati Ledger ofthe 11th says :
Yesterday morning, as we were return
ing home from our office, about 2 o’clk., we
were suddenly startled by an explosion im
mediately over our head, similar to the re
port of a cannon. In looking up we disco
vered in the air, large fragments of fire,
flying in different directions—each of which
looked to us as if they were particles of a
star that had burst asunder. The moon
became black as ink, and the starsall seem
ed as if they had dwindled away & nought
could be seen but the fiery fragments flying
about the sty. These burnt for a few mo
meats, and 1 then gradually died away until
they could be seen no more. A few mo
ments after the explosion took place, the
earth shook lifte an aspen, and the moon
when she again shone seemed trembling
from the effects of the shock. What could
have been the cause of this wonderful oc
currence ? Can any of our great astrolo
gers throw any light on the subject ?
[lt is conjectured that the Editor of the
Ledger was corned and struck his head a
gainst a post.

CONTEMPT OF COURT.
There was an old practitioner of Law over
the mountains in Virginia, who was a sort
of “Sir Oracle” with the magistrates or
county court. Whatever he told the court
was law, the court decided was law. He
was a “ privileged character.” Though
the Court considered Mr. Jones infallible,
some of the young attorneys used to ven
ture a smirk now and then at his legal dog,-
mas. On one occasion, one of them ven
tured so far as not only to deny what Mr.
Jones said was law, but to express some
surprise that lie should assert it to be so.—
This was downright “contempt,” not only
of the Court, but of Mr. Jones. Where
upon Mr. Jones so berated and and and the
lawyer, that he called upon the court to
“Piotccl you!” said the Court. “You
may think yourself well off that the court
does not commit you !”
“Commit me!” exclaim, and the young law
yer, “for what /”
“Because,” replied the court, “you put
Mr. Jones in a passion, and made him curse
and swear before the court.”
Goon Friday. —The following anecdote
is not bad in these days, when reverence for
holy usages has nearly left the land. An
attorney in the supreme court on Thursday
was anxious to bring a cause to trial, and
went to inquire of the chief justice if he
would not sit on Friday. “No, sir,” said
the chief justice, “no judge ever sat on Good
Friday, but Pontius Pilate.”
A Temperance Anecdote. —A man was
taken before a magistrate for having, while
drunk, knocked down in the street a minis
ter of religion.. Tho prisoner was fully
convicted of the offence, but at the urgent
intercession of the reverend gentleman
whom he had injured, was liberated on
signing the teetotal pledge lor a month.
At the expiration of the month, he called
at the house of the divine, and being intro
duced, expressed his gratitude for the effects
of tho pledge he had submitted to, and con
cluded with expressing the utmost sorrow
at not having met and knocked down his
reverence thirty years before.

(LATEST IM PROVE ME NT,)
For the immediate relief and radical cure of all
or either of the following varieties of HERNIA,
(Rupture,) to wit: Scrifal, Femoral, Inguinal,
Ventral, or Umbilical.
The Subscriber having purchased the right
and privilege of applying and using, within the
county of Wilkes, this celebrated instrument for
the radical cure and immediate relief of all per
sons who are the unfortunate subjects of either of
;he above mentioned diseases, embraces an ear
ly opportunity of informing such, that they can
be relieved from this distressing malady by ma
king early application. Trusses, of sizes suitable
for every variety of case, will be kept constantly
oil hand and applied at a reasonable price.
The inventor of this new and valuable Truss
in his remarks on the subject says:
“Having cured extensive ruptures of eighteen
years standing, and given immediate relief, in a
considerable number of cases, in old and in young
persons, who are now either entirely well, or re
lieved from all inconvenience from this distress
ing and dangerous malady ; persons thus affect
ed, who have not heretofore had an opportunity
of availing themselves of its substantial benefits,
that of immediate relief and ultimate radical cure,
will doubtless now do so.
My Patent Metallic Truss combines the ad
•varjtages of all other Trusses, without their in
conveniences ; and is equally applicable to the
live different varieties of Rupture enumerated,
and can be worn night and day with comfort and
convenience; and it the patient be prudent and
regards his health, effectually prevents the es
cape of the Viscera. The steel spring Truss, it
is well known, cannot be worn at night, and
consequently, a great deal of time is lost by that
circumstance. The celebrated Mr. Cooper says
in his surgical work upon the subject of the ap
plication and use of the Truss, that, “Whoever
wears a Truss, should be careful to employ it
day and night, without intermission, so that there
may he no opportunity for the Hernia to protrude
again; lor experience has put it beyond all
doubt, that by the continual unremitted use of a
Truss, and the retention of the contents of the
Hernia, the neck of the sack and the ring may
be gradually lessened in diameter, until they are
entirely closed, and a radical cure of the rup
ture effected.”—This is now the opinion of all
Surgeons of respectability, and with my Truss,
this important injunction of one and all of the
most distinguished Medical men ill the world,
can be complied with.
In offering my Truss to Ihe afflicted of Rup
ture, I do it confidently, believing, from actual
experience in my own person, and that of many
others, that it is the most valuable instrument
ever presented lor their use. My opinion upon
.this subject is corroborated by that of all Physi
cians who have examined it, and had an oppor
tunity of knowing of the success 1 have had in
relieving and curing ruptures of different kinds.”
Various certificates from Physicians of the
h.ghest character could be produced in relation
to the superiority of this Truss over all others yet
presented to the public ; but I forbear, and trust
