TMIB NORTH CAMOILIUMAN
From the Cincinnati Daily Enquirer. s
Wo hear from all parts of the country ac
count of the outrages upou good order and
common decency committed by - some of the
whigs on their return from the Daytou fan
dango, The whooping aud yelling, the in
sults and abuse, the red faces and inflamed
eyes of many of these men, bore testimony that
they had gane deep into debauchery, and for
got temperance, decency, the feelings and
quiet of others, aud the good order of society.
In mote than cue instance, this brutal con
duct has wrought its end, by showing discreet,
temperate, and religious men that they could
no longer act with such a party, and bringing
them out upou the side of the country. This
is the case ia four different instances within
our knowledge. The people will not counte
nance this new sweep of immorality and
drunkenness over the land. The cause of
temperance has suffered more by this
one fandango, than months of incessaut ex
ertions by its friends will repair. The fol

To the Editors of the Cincinnati Enquirer:
I believe that it has been the opinion of a
mnjoriry of those persons who make a profes
sion of Christianity, that a minister of the
gospel ought not to take any active part in po
litical controversies. Whether that opinion
has been a correct one or not, 1 will not now
say. I profess to be a minister of the gospel;
and to my owu master I stand or fall. It is
certainly the duly of every man whom God
has sent to preach His VVord, to reprove and
icbuke all unrighteousness and intemper
ance, wherever they may be found ; but more
especially when found among those who pro
fess to be religious aud -temperate. Great has
been the change, apparently, that has taken
nlace iu the Miami Valley since the 1st of
March, 1842. Then, our country and towns
were tilled with newspapers, calling upon the
people to be temperate ; and all those who re
fused to sign the temperance pledga were
classed with drunkards, aud friends of drunk
ards. But now, on the 28th, 29th, and 30th
days of September, A. D., 1842, (be aston
ished, O heavens ! and all ye on earth, who
out of a pure heart, serve your Creator,) our
streets and highways are crowded with men
and boys, shouting and yelping like maniac?,
singing ridiculous aud nonsensical songs ;
carrying about live coons, and making a dis
play of indecent caricatures. But last, and
worst, TEMPERANCE men, and men pro
fessing godliness, have joined in and coun
tenanced these scenes of ungodliness.
Friend Bingham, of the " Morning Star
and Temperance Journal," I begin to stand
in doubt of you. What means the following
When this election is over, then ye rum
mers will catch it. We shall throw down the
gauntlet, and who of you will take it up?"
is it not as mvicn ot a duly to cnarge upon
" rummers " before, and on the day of elec
lion, as after the election is past? Or did
you think that a little of the "critter' might
be useful to clear the wind-piped of certain
song-singers before the election, that after
wards it might bo dispensed with ? Be care
ful that parly spirit does not deter you from
doing your duty. A hint to the wise is suf
ficient. And now let me say a few .words to all
those into whose bauds these lines may fall,
who profess to worship the Lord God and
Him only, whether they be whigs or Demo
crats. l)o you not discover that infidelity is
making rapid strides over the minds of the
human family ? Doubtless you do. And is
there not a cause for it ? Surely there is.
Have wo not reaou to fear that the licentious
arid immoral conduct of professors of religion
has made more infidels lhan has been made
by all the writing of iuiidels put together? I,
for one, am iucliued to think so. flow care
ful, then, should we be to discountenance
every thing that looks like the hard-cider cam
paign of 1S40. Certain I am, that no Chris
tian can justify such conduct as was acted by
many in going to and from the Clay meeting
at Dd) ton.
1 have no objections to Christians going to
political meetings, (whether they be whig or
democratic,) if they be conducted iu a proper
maimer; but when they do go, they ought to act
like rational beings, ami beings that expect
lo give au account of their actions at the
great tribunal of heaven. Remember, O
Christians, " that ye are the salt of the eaith ;
but if the salt should lose its savor, wherewith
shall it be salted V
The National Intelligencer thinks that the
late elections, iu Ohio especially, show au in
excusable "dcieliction" on the part of the
coons. The Intelligencer deserves credit for
this. There is everything in the choice of a
word, and 'dereliction' is smooth as silk vel
velty, indeed, when used to account for a drub
biug. Are you defeated, routed, beaten,
flogged? Not at all we are merely "dere
lict." The last syllable, perhaps, would be
more germain to the matter lhan the whole
word, though neither so elegant nor so com
fortable. Say "derelict," aud mind youi em

The Geueral Assembly. No. 2
After the election of its presiding officers,
the next step preparatory to business will be
the election of Clerks. lhis involves, as we
said in our last number, what our opponents
are pleased to term the question of "proscrip
tion." We have heard much declamation on
this subject ,- and like others, the whigs have
made fair promises, which they have iu every.;
instance violated. JNo where have they had
the power aud failed to exerc ise it. They
promised to "proscribe proscription," and by
way of fulfilling their promise, they remove
wherever they can, and fill all vacancies with
their own men. Can it be expected, after
such a course by our opponents, that our
friends should continue ia office those who
have been so zealous iu their opposition?
They profess lo act on the principle of re
moving only such as have interfered in elec
tions. If the democrats adopt this rule, then
must eveiy whig in office be removed. They
have every office . connected with the State
government on which the Legislature will be
called to act. There may be one exception,
the Chief Clerk of the Senate, who was retain
ed because of his. vote for Governor and his
f JSIiiri in voiiiofTreHJdent. ,jAo4 even i n
nis case, oar nergnoor oi trie iiegister, was
not very well satisfied that lie was not selec
ted to supplant him. It is said that'Mr Man
ly has been Clerk to the House for many years,
aud has made a good officer. Grant it and
does it follow that he is to be always Clerk?
If we are rightly informed, he is at this time
prosecuting Attorney,for the county of Chat
ham Secretary and Treasurer to the Board
of Trustees of the University and Attorney
to the Bank of the State. Pie was one of the
most active of the Central Committee and
used every means in his power to defeat the
democrats, both in the National and State
elections. Has he ever voted for a demo
crat? His assistant, Mr Freeman, is another
office-holder, though, like others, always ready
to cry out against office-seekers. He is the
Deputy of the Clerk of the Supreme Court,
and foi a lime, at least, acted as assistant to
the Governor's Secretary. Mr Miller, the
Reading Clerk in the Senate, is also of the
Central Committee, was put in by his whig
friends, aud cannot complain that he should
be superseded by his democratic opponents.
So far as these gentlemen are concerned, we
think the democrats may follow the example
of their whig opponents, without risking any
thing from the clamor by office-holders for
As to the subject of the other officers ot
the State, it may present difficulties which we
cannot anticipate. We admit the principle,
that officers in a republican government must
be considered as created for the public not
for the individuals who fill them ; and when
a man has proved himself faithful, it may be
to the interest of the public that he should be
continued. But when men have been put
in for their politics, they canuot object that
they should be put out for the same cause.
The Treasurer may be, and no doubt ia faith
ful in the discharge of his duties but we
doubt if he ever would have been Treasurer,
but for his being a political whig. He, too,
has been of the whig Central Committee,"
and like his brother w higs, has no doubt done
his best to keep his party iu power. The
Comptroller, as we hear, claims io have been
put in by the aid of Democrats, and should,
as he says, be continued. If such is the fact,
it constitutes no argument for his continu
ance for if the democrats elected him ex
pecting he was democratic in his principles,
they have been disappointed. As to the Se
cretary of Slate, he came in under old coun
sels, and though some of his opinions may be
adverse to the party iu pow er, we doubt if any
one will feel disposed to disturb him.
It may be said, then, we are for a general
sweep. Not exactly so; but if we were, we
should be only following whig example.
W hat office did they spare last session, from
the Judge to the Door Keeper? They even
carried their party feelings into the Judiciary.
Their Judges were selected for their poli
tics; and so far did they go iu this, as to ex
clude a worthy man, who held the Executive
appointment, because he was not whig enough.
For the Attorney General they excluded a
valuable officer, aud put in a political partisan,
of whom they will not find it easy to rid them
selves. After su.:h au example, whatever the Legis
lature may do, let not the whigs raise their
idle clamor about proscription. What was it
that caused the removal of Geu. Marstellor,
Mr Coleman, and Col. Wheeler, but their
politics? They were as capable and as faith
ful as any of our State officers. And who

it is proposed, merely for the symmetry of the

return the compliment by designating them
as "coons," and by making this distinction
upon all occasions. This would be both poeti

say that the soubriquet bestowed upon demo

Coonery. The proposition to set of? the
term "locofocoism," by designating those who
use it as "coons," seems to meet with gen
eral approbation. It is now a good number,
of years since the illustrious James Watson
VVebb, at a great gathering of coons at Castle
Garden, first applied the title to which we ob
ject, to the democratic party, aud it was pa
tiently endured that our opponents might see
whether they could derive advantage from the
use of the epithet. The experiment, however,
has been sufficiently protracted, and so long
as il is persevered in, we shall be compeJed
to amuse ourselves with "coon hunting."
Our opponents certainly have no reason to
complain. They have entertained themselves
for a great while in calling people "out of

In all legislative assemblies in Congress
and iu the state Legislatures, the democratic
party is always spoken of by its right name.
Its members are called "democrats, aud in
return, its opponents receive the title which
they claim. Thus we have "democrats,"
"whigs," and that civility which is requisite to
ensure good feel iug. The 'whig' newspapers
however, and the stump-orators who manufac
ture balderdash for public occasions, are pecu
liarly fond of talking of 'locofocos' and 'loco
focoism,' as if insulting phrases answered the
puiposes of argument, and were all powerful
in carrying elections. But as results are fast
proving the contrary, and as what is termed
'locofocoism' seems to be triumphing every
where, it is respectfully submitted whether the
time is not come for giving up this silly mode
of electioneeriug. The calling of names is
always in batl taste, aud never answers any
good purpose that we know of. Besides,
whiggery, as it is lermed, pays an ill compli
ment to itself, when thus compelled by the
publication of election returns, to confess
that it is beaten by that which it endeavors to
stigmatise as something altogether unworthy
as mere "locofocoism."

ARKANSAS. The election ia this State
came off on the 3d inst. We get a slight
rumor of the success of fhc democratic ticket.
According to the " letlei from John Barney
of Baltimore," Mr Clay refused lo enter the
"line of safe precedents," by taking office
under Gen. Harrison. Wheu he took the
office of Secretary of State, under John Quin
cy Adams, he thought he was gelling into the
" line of safe precedents " for the Presidency,
but he soon found the mistake. -
We always said so.
The whole democratic press has often told
the public that Mr Clay was the prime mover
in, and piincipal counseller of, the Harrison
administration ; and that Mr Clay had much
to do with the selection of Geii'l Harrisou's
Cabinet. The recent speech of Mr Webster
having affronted the 'Coons, they are now let
ting the cat out of ihe bag. Mr Webster, il
seems, made a flourish about Gen. Harrison's
inviting him to take choice of the seats iu his
Cabinet. This was such a fine opportunity
to give Mr Webster a cut, that they could not
let it slip ; consequently we have, in the Ob
server, a correspondent of the Richmond
Whig, saying :
"I am of opinion, and perhaps it is sus
ceptible of proof, that General Harrison was
indisposed to allow Mr Webster a seat in the
Cabinet at all, and would not have written
him a line ou the subject, if Mr Clay, whose
advice the noble and brave old man took, had
uof urged it upon him."
Here is proof of all we have said.
ANOMALY. The Observer says that
the democratic candidate for Governor of
Ohio, was elected " by less than a majority
of the votes." We should like to see the Ob
server prove it. Now, the 'Coon candidate
was elected by less than a majority, but he
was elected to slay at home.
Querc. If Shannon, w ho obtained 4,012
votes more than Corwiu, did not receive a
majority, how will tho Observer make it out
that Shannon was elected ? - He may take
either horn of the dilemma; but most of people
will perceive that he is wilfully guilty of the
sin which he very often charges upon us ; we
mean the sin of telling "falsehoods."
