had been much provoked: evr?n on the previ. ;

errnon with great promise of preferment
Mis. Lilly white could only scold the maiden

The Whig Platform has thrown the De
mocracy all aback! For weeks and months
they have been telling their readers, that the
Whigs were Ihe obedient tools of Governor
Stward, and that they would not dare lo de
clare themselves in favor of the Compro
mise measures. I!ui !j and behold ! the
record refutation of Ihe calumny ! The
Whig resolution goea a bow shot beyond that
of ihe Democratic, and is as strong aa any
Southern man bas ever a-ked for. It is ihe
ace of trumps and lakes the trick !
The Locofoco correspondent of the Jour
nal of Commerce growls through a column
on ihe subject. He cannot deny that the
Vh;gs have taken the wind out of the sails
of the Democracy; but he complains of the
motives which governed. The Northern
Whigs (he says) who voted for ihis resolu
tion were previously opposed to the Compro
mise, and they havo yielded their objections
for ihe sake of harmonizing their parly ond
saving the country from Locofoco rule !
Well, what wrong is there in that? It is
ihe very thing we desired, and it is an ear
nest of their patriotism.
There ia no hing equivocal in the W'hig
Platform. It is plain and exp'icit. It does
not revoke in one breath what it had uttered
in another. It makes no allusions to the

and Jeffersouian school, impulsive, warm
hearted, ardent and patriotic, when the out

ihe profession in which he had every pros
