The Squabble for the President .
The Washington correspondent of the New
York llcrahl who is counted first rate deiio
cratic authority says :
“ Within the last ten days the President im
broglio here has assumed a variety of very in
teresting aspects among the scene-shiftyrs ,and
pij e layers of the different parties, cirques, and
pspirants lor the succession.
First—The intense hostility to Buchanan of
l ho ihniglns. Piorce, and Hunter managers, iias
ussumi-p something of the complexion of a reg
ular conspiracy against the distinguished Penn
The writer then goes on to describe the dif
ferent factions that arc at the present time ren
ding and tearing in pieces the harmonious de
mocracy and says:
” Meantime, they arc humbugging his Ex
cellency the President without remorse. Most
of Hie delegates to Cincinnati have been elect
ed—a large proportion of them have the very
best reasons for keeping On the right side of
the administration yet a little longer. Fat of
fices, here and there, may depend upon it. And
so Gen. Pierce.has hoen favored with letters
from a snßfcient lumber of delegates to assure
him of a majority of the convention from the
outset. He takes these promises in good faith,
when many of them arc sheer moonshine.—
Franklin Pierce may get the complimentary
testimonial upon the first vote, of a pluralii,-:
hut tlmn as with Van Buren in 1811, they will
drop him. Th $ liana fide Pierce delegates have
an inkling of this, anil their plans are arranged
accordingly; first to defeat Buchanan, and,
secondly, to create such an entanglement in the
Convention as will compel it, as a last resort,
to fail back upon the administration find tru t
“ Fat offices” are the great moving as well as
-liic cohesive power" of the harmonious de
mocracy. Without this they would go “ whirl
ing through the sky,” and headlong to perdition.
Hut this load stone is constantly before their
eyes, and we should not think strange, if “ as a
lost resort” to retain the spoils they “ fall hack
o.i the administration and trust to luck.”
But from the best light m which the great
harmonious can he received, we are compelled
to think their days will he numbered, before
the ides of March next. Tile same authority,
the Herald, affected for awhile to treat the
American nomination of Fillmore and Dotiel
son as a trite affair, aii'd while it still opposes
the American [’arty, it seems to he fearful that
accessions from the Black Republicans, or the
growing strength (if the party- generally will
make it formidable. The sag nielit papers gen
erally are singing low at the present time, f
AYe find an interesting synopsis of the gen
eral laws passel by the'last Legislature, in the
Southern Recorder. The following are some
of them ;
83. I’o reduce file number of Jurors acquired
lor I 'oruiicr's inquest.
[lt reduces the number of Jurors to six.]

| duty it shall he to a.-sess the sum necessary for
| the support of the widow, or children, Ac., for

tlie Ordinary to record the sumo in a book kept

The appraisers are also empowered (o set

When there is Imt one Justice of tlie Peace
in the District, said Justice and any two free
holders may oil application ol the widow or
children, make the assessment and assignment
of property authorized by the act of l'Boo in
relation to the estates of persons, without rep
resentation by Executor or Administrator.]
139. In relation to allowing Tax Collectors
ail insolvent list by the Grand Juries of the
several counties in this State.
[The Tux Collector is required to make out
a list of the insolvent tax payers in this county,
with the amount due by each annexed, and to
lay tlie same before the Grand Jurors enipan
nelied at the second term of tlie Superior Court

over the full amount of taxes as it stands
charged upon tlie hooks.
Within sixty days after the a'lowance of said
insolvent list the Tax Collector is required to
issue execution against each insolvent tax pay
er and turn (hesame over to the Sheriff, whose

same upon said recommendation.
[ln addition to tlie provisions rfc'cited in the
caption, it is required that the Jury and con
fession fees in each ease shall be paid into the
county fund to ho used for the purpose of pay
ing the Jurors.]
1.59. To allow Trustees to make returns to
the Court of Ordinary in certain cases and to
make it their duty to do so in other eases.
[Any Trustee is allowed to make a return of
his actings anil doings to the Court of Ordina

reuni is to have the .same force and effect, as

defaults or contracts of the husband, existing
at the time cf marriage.”
I (IT. To amend the rent laws.
[Distress warrants for rent may be issued as

Millard Fillmore on Anirrlcanhui!
The New York Herald having called lor the
letter written by Mr. Fillmore to Isaac New
ton, of this city, we have procured the same,
and now present it to our readers.
The letter, though private, contains senli
incuts which every American should desire to
see published far and wide.— Phil. News.
Buffalo, N. A'.. Jam 3. 1855.
Isaac: NTavton :
Respected Friend: It would give me great
plea lire to accept your kind invitation to visit
Philadelphia, if it were possible to make my
visit private, and limit it to a few personal
friends whom 1 should be mo t happy to see;
hut I know that this would he out ofiny
pow r, mi l I am tlie.e ore reluctantly com
pelled to decline your invitation, as I have
done others to New York and Boston, for the
same reason. ...
I return you many thanks for your informa
tion oil the subject of polities. 1 urn always
happy to hear w hat is going forward ; but. in
dependent of the fact that 1 feel myself with
drawn from the political nreiri, i have been too
much depressed in spirit to take an active part
in the late elections. 1 contented myself with
giving a silent vote for Mr. Ullmnmi for Gov
While, Inwever. lam an inactive observer
of public events, ! am by no means an indiffer
ent one, nnd I may say to you, in the frankness
of private friendship, that 1 have for a long
time looked with dread and apprehension at
(lie corrupting influence which the contest for
the foreign vote is exerting upon our elections.
This seems to result from its being banded to
gether. and subject to the control of a few in
terested and selfish leaders. lienee, it has been
a subject of bargain and sale, and each of tile
great political parties of the country have been
bidding to obtain it, and as usual in all such
contests, the party which is most corrupt is
most successful. The consequence is, that it is
last demoralizing the whole country ; corrupt
ing tlie very fountains of political power, and
converting the ballot-box—that great palladi
um of our liberty.— into an unmeaning mockery,
where the fights of native-born citizens are
voted away by those who blindly follow their
mercenary and selfish lenders.
The evidence of this is found not merely in
the shameless chaffering for the foreign vote at
every el ctipii. but in the large disproportion of
offices which are now held by foreigners at
home and abroad, as compared with our native
citizens. Where is the true-hearted American
whose cheek does not tingle with shame and
mortification to see out highest and most cov
eted foreign missions filled by men of foreign
birth to the exelusion of native-born ? Such
appointments are a humiliating confession to
the crowned heads of Europe, that a republican
.:! does not produce sufficient talent to repre
sent a republican nation at a monarchical court.
1 confess that it seems to me—with all due re
spect to others—that, as a general mle, our
country slvuld be governed by American-born
citizens. Lotus give to the oppressed of ev
ery country an asylum and a home in our hap
py land, give to all. the benefits of equal laws,
and equal protection; but let us at the same
time cherish as the apple of oar eye the great
principles of constitutional liberty, which few
who have not had the good fortune to be rear
ed in a free country know howto appreciate
and stiil less how to preserve. .
Washington, m that inestimable legacy
which he left to hi'scountry—his Faicwell Ad
dress—has wisely warned us to beware of for
eign liiiluencea s the most baneful foe of a re
publican government, lie saw it to be sure in
a different light from that in which 1 it now pre
sents itself; but lie knew that it would approach
ns in all forms and hence he cautioned us
against the iirfiihinis u-iles of its wfhience. —
Therefore, as well for oitr own sakes. to whom ]
this invaluable inheritance of self-government I
has been left by our forefathers, as for the sake!
of the unborn millions who are to inherit this!
land—foreign and native—let us take warning j
of tlie Father of his Country, and do what we |
can justly to preserve our institutions from cor
ruption. and our country from dishonor, but
let tikis be done by the people themselves, in
their sovereign capacity by making a proper
discrimination in theselection of their officers,
ml not by depriving any individual:—native or
foreign-born—of any constitutional or legal

The Chicago Tribune, a Republican paper,
gives the following description of the maimer

thing foreign government must, he here in the

place at the recent charter election in that city.:
The Tribune says:
The Irish pooled into the city from all the
surrounding country, and voted. Hundreds of
Catholic foreigners in Cook conn ly came t"
Chicago toholp their countrymen. Many of these
vagabonds voted two and three tunes each, go
ing from one ward to another. Drunken Irish
sailors were known to,have voted as often a--
lour times, under assumed names, changing
clothes for the purpose. At the Seventh ward
liish were seen, alter having voted, (all into
die ranks and work their way up to the win
dow mid vote again, while around the pdfs
stood a wild, excited mob of a thousand Ceils,
(hreatning death to all who opposed them.
Hundreds who were challenged and rejected at
■ne wards on the south side, swarmed over to
'heir countrymen on the north side, and there
deposited th irballots. A great many swore
