A lift Political Knavery. About the meanest specimen of political rascality that have latelj come under our notice, are the efforts of men allied to, and acting with other parties to use the honored old Whig mme for the purpose of advancing the interests of such p; rties. Although such trickery is in &e highest degree disgraceful, yet we see men who call themselves honorable and are so regard ed, engaging in it and attempting to deceive the public, all the while protesting stout'y that they till are Old Lane Whigs. In the recent Whig Slate Convention which met in this city there were seme bogu Whigs who ssught to obtain an expression in favor of the worst enemy of the Whig party has on earth, Milhrd Fillmore, but the good sense of an overwhelming majority of the Convention indignantly reproved the effort, and covered its authors with shame and mortification. We have already exposed the meeting of the logtu Whigs at Lexington, and we now have to notice similiar efforts in other places to induce the belief that the Whig party in certain localities is in favor Fremont. The Pittsburg Gazette say: e Whig of Dacrsiv Cocktt. The Danpbin coanty held a large matins at Harrisburg oa Wednesday evening, July 9th. Joseph Wallace, Eq., presided, assisted by A. Freanor and Jdo. II. Pox, Esqrs , as and Geo. W. Harris and C. M. Shell, as Secretaries. The resolutions were offered by Aaron Bombaagh. Esq.. and were unanimously adopted. Tbey acc pt tbe Phil platform and endorse the nomination of Fremont and Dayton. This meeting was ignifl ant, because it was very generally reported that the Wbigs of Danpbin were going for Buchanan. The action of this meeting ffcciaa!ly puts a stopper upon that. 'J he following dispatch giving the proceedings of a "Whig Meeting" in Beaton, on Monday last, we copy from our New York exchanges: A meeting of the Wh gs of Bueton in favor of John C. Fremont for President, was held in Faneuil HU last evening. About twelve thousand persons were present. The meeting wss called to order by Hob. William T. Eostis, and R bert J.Burbank, elected President, with numerous including FranUii Brewer, Patrick T. JacksoD.and other well known Whirs. Speeches were made by Col. Burbauk. Hon. William M. Everts, of New York, and oibera, mainly in urginr the propriety, importance, and necessity of a uuittd ralley for Fremont and Dayton, as tbe on'y mean of defeating the Democracy. Tbe me in if was very enthusiastic. Half a dozen Fillmomtc created a brief disturbance in the middle ol tat Hall, bat were ejected. The hottest straight out N;tional Whigs of Massachusetts and Pennsylvania, who earnestly desire the of the Whig party, re pudute the action of these meetings, as the true higs of Kentucky repudiate the action of the log Whigs at Lexington . Buchanan and the Bargain. Just as the editor of this paper was entering the Luisville an J Frank lort Railroad Depot, be fore starting for his home, in the country, yester-- i afternoon, he was violently assaulted by Elias R. Hall, who struck him with a large hick- - dy t as ory stick lefore he w as even aware an attack on t M him was meditated. He warded off the blows :..

I 1 There never was a more unfounded falsehood than that of Mr. Buchanan's connection with the alleged bargain between Clay and Adams. At the time, he was a young member of Congress, bo on terms of intimacy with either Jackson or Clay. He was then a member of the o'J Fede ral party, which, like the Whig party of the present day, was disorganized, and, like the Whigs now, having no cindidate of his own party, had to look to another party for Lis choice of a Pre ident. Among others, he had a right to his preference. He admired both Jackson in J Clay at that time, and wished to see the one President and the other Secretary of ftate; and after the Kentucky Legislature Lad requested the Kentucky Representatives in Congress to vote (or Jackson, he naturally enough thought his wishes were likely to be accomplished, and so said to Clay, in Letcher's room, that he hoped he would vote for Jackson, as the Legislature requested, and that he hoped also Clay would be appointed Secretary of State. It was in this state of things that Buchanan had the conversation in Letcher's room with Clay a conversation, under the circumstaiices, perfectly natural and wholly innocent. Ard that it was so, is the only inference that can be drawn from Mr. Clay's account of it as detailed in Col'on, Life ani Times of Clay. That account, in Clay's own handwriting, represents Mr. Clay as treat ing the whole matter "playfully. Had it been an authorized, corrupt, or dishonorable proposition, Clay would have treated it any other way than "playfully. No man who knew Clay but would as soon Lave attempted to pull his nose as offer him a corrupt proposition. Yet the Know- Nothings would have us believe Buchanan made a proposal to Clay so gross that, ;f Letcher could peak out, it would damn him. It is all non sense. There was nothing improper in the affair. as Clay's own account clearly shows. The call ea Letcher to speak out is all rank hypocrisy Letcher knows nothing, believes nothing, not already made public by Colton. But we may peak of this hereafter. If Buchanan had known, at the time of the alleged conversation in Letcher's room, the in imical personal relations existing between Jack ton and Clay, he could never have believed that Jackson would appoint Clay Secretary. So a few minutes conversation with Jackson on the street, on a cold stormy day, which be fully related in 1827, and a perfectly harmless chat with Clay in LHcher's room, is the whole foundation for this calumny against Buchanan! The alro. city of the wrong to Buchanan is scarcely greater than Jackson's original calumny agiinst Clay. But it is nevertheless urged for the pur pose of incensing Whigs against Buchanan. Honest Whigs will not be deluded by a charge never made until thirty years after the alleged offence. They have too much sense and boror to stultify themselves thus palpably. ,). ing dropped a pistol from his pocket. Mr. Hal deman then wrested the cane from him, when Hall turned and rapidly fled down Jefferson street, leaving behind his hat, cane and pis'ol. One of the blows en Mr. H.'sarm.we learn, was o severe that it is apprehended a bone is frac tured. We presume the cause of the assault was the paragraph tl at app-are- d in the Courier a few days since of Hall's appearance in court, when it wa proven that he had been an inmate of the Auburn New York State Prison for three years. Things have come to a pretty pass indeed, when independent editors are thus to be assaulted by convicts for simply reporting proceedings that occurred in court. We are told that the crea- urcs life was in the hands of Mr. Halderman fier he had knocked him down and his pis tol was lying on the pavement, but it was spared him, though the many witnesses of the affair justly thought he deserved the most nummary punishment. A warrant was issued last evening for the ar rest of Hall, who, no doubt, is skulking about the environs of the city. In addition of being guilty of committing a cowardly assault upon a peaceable citizen, he has violated the law by carrying concealed a deadly weapon. His club was eft at our office; his pistol was handed to an officer, and his hat is perhaps in the gut er where he left it. The Pacific Kailrond. The following is an abstract of a bill agreed upon by the Special Pacific Railroad Committee in Congress, and which we trust may be passed before an adjournment: Three roads are to be provided for one to be degree of north built north of the forty-fourlatitude, by the North Atlantic and Paeific company, of which Alexander Ramsny h iiid is President; one between t'ae thirty-cigrrty-fourt- h parallels, to be eon tructrd by an associati n of all the roads now chartered and running westward through Iowa and Missouri, the junction to be formed near Fort Kearney, and the single trunk to run to the navigable aters of the Pacific, in Calfornia; and the Southern road is awarded to the Southern At- antic and Pacific Railroad, of which T. Put'.er King is President a new company, associated with the Atlantic and Pacific riilroa l company, of California, the Texas Western Railroad Com pany, and the Yicksburg and Shrevesport Com pany. This line runs from the Mixaiitnippi, at some point south of the thirty-eight- h degree, and runs to San Francisco, with a branch to San Diego, and with a grant of forty sections of land to the mile west of Texas to the California line, nd then ten sections per mile to San Francisco. No grant is mode for that poition of the road east of the western boundary of Texas. The Northern road receives forty sections from point to point, seventeen hundred miles. The middle road receives thirty s?ci n until it readies California, then ten sections to its western tcr minus. 1 he provisions ior man pay ere noerai. Telegraphic lines are provided for on each road. Bloodt Afteat. A few days s:nce, Dr. Taylor, of Marion county, Mo., had a difficulty ith a citizen, and shot him in the head, the ball entering the mouth and coming out at the neck. The cause assigned was he writing and publishing of some insulting poetry about Taylor and Dr. Taylor is t'e individual who had is wife. the difficulty with Broadus, in the year 1846, in Palmyra, challenging him to fight with double-barelle- d guns, at a distance of less than five feet. The principals did not fight, but the two young men who acted as seconds, met shortly after, and killed each other on the street in Palmyra. Killed bt Lichtmko. The Roanoke Dcn.o- crt, Halifax, N. C, of Wednesday last, says Mr. Samuel Kater, of that county, lost his little son last Wednesday by lightning, and, strange to say, he was sitting between two persons in the door of a houe: with his little hand in the lap of a lady, and resting himself on a young man. The child was killed instantly, without f percept ible scar. The your.g man was thrown senseless, but recovered, receiving a burn down his back to his knees, thence the lightning penetrated the floor. The young lady received no hurt. Another Slice or Mexico. It is stated by way of Mexico, that Secretary Marcy ha pro- to purcl ase an posed to President other slice of Mexico. The offer is said to have parallel of been 1 6,000,000 for the thirty-firlatitude for the boundary line to the Gulf of President Comonfort is stated to California. have refused to entertain the proposition. The whole statement, however, is very doubtful. Comonfo-- t Assistant Scrgeons. The following sur geons constitute the Army Medical Board that is ordered to convene at Newport, Ky., on the 1st of next month, for the examination of Assistant Surgeons for promotion, and of candidates for admission into the medical staff of the U. S. army: C. S. Tipler, N. S. Jarvis, A. N. McLaren. The Felon Hall His Coadjutor. Correction. Elias C. Hall alia Elias Hall, who made a dastardly assault upon the editor of this paper and then fled the city, to parts unknown, had a highly characteristic card in the Louisville Jour nal yesterday, over the signature of Elias Hall, his last aha. Even the most casual reader can not fail to perci ive that the card in question, if written by Hall, was furnished to the editor of the Journal several hours before the premedita ted attack. The programme was marked out, but the performance was entirely changed. In 6tead of hearing "c; I!s for mercy," the coward's legs were rallel in pLy to carry his caicassout of harm's way. The whole statement is a miserable perversion of facts unworthy of comment ; but it is very apparent that the editor of the Journal, if not the instigator of the dastardly act, was an accessory, and in the full confidence of the felon who attempted it. The affair occurred at the railroad depot about five o'clock in the evening, and Hall, alter beinj disarmed, and knocked down, was seen to fly bareheaded, as fat as his legs could carry him, to the outskirts of the city. The police soon after were on his track, but could not catch him, or find hide or hair of him from that moment up to the present time. The Journal of the next morning, parades the fellow's card without one word of extenuation, or even refer-in- g to the rencontre, though the editor must have been in full possession of the ficts of the case. As we said before, oinment is unnecessary. We, however, desire to make a few corrections of our previous report of the case of Hall, as alluded to in the Journal' card of yesterday. It is as follows : It is not true that I "hired a horse at Davis & Bacon's stable, and drove rapidly to New Albany," nor that I "left in hot haste." I have not been to New Albany for one month past, and I lett here only the next day after the trial, in pursuance of my business, as derided a week betore, as my friends well know, and then I lelt in open day, and went ita other citizt ns by a public thoroughfare. It is not true that I '"was sent to State prison for three years. It is not true tfcat "there as an indict ment against nie for It is not rue that I have "laid claims to excesMve virtue at anytime. It is not tine that lever belonged to the btcond Precbytoian Church. It is not true that I am, or ever was, a leader of the Know-Xoth- j: party. We learn from the proprietors of the stable, that Hall, at the time alluded to, did hir? a horse nd buggy for the ostensible purpose of going to ew Albany. The vehicle was sent back the next day. That he was not sent to State prison for threeyfart, is true, but it is also true, and we ave the record now before us, that he was con- icted to the Auburn Mate prison, Erie county, New York, for two years, for horse stealing, and served out his time. It also appears that he was not indicted for house breaking, but for forgery and for grand larceny. In regard to his claims virtue" and KnowNothingis n, we have othinj to add. The Gelat Comet. M. Babinet, a member of says that the comet ex pected the present year is one of the largest comets described by European or Chinese ob servers, and that its periodical course is three hundred years. It has been seen in the years 104, 683, 1204, and the last time in 1556, always shining with extraordinary brilliancy. M. Boune, an eminent astronomer, assisted by Mr. Hind, as gone over all the calculations pertaining to making a new estitbe comet's mate of the separate and combined actions of all the planets upon this comet, of three hundred years, the result of which is that in 1859 or somewhere between 1856 and 1860 it will again be visible.

The Madison Courier says that Dr. Slayton, of that city, has invented a pencil that will write with ink. It is so constructed that the handle can be filled with ink, and be made to flow to the pencil constantly, not too much nor too little. It is a fountain ink pencil, for it can contain ink enough to last a week for constant writing. It is said to make a smoother mark than any pen, and writes equally as well as the best. An application was made to Judge Storer, in the Cincinnati Snpreme Court on Tuesday, to dis charge an attachment on Iron, in the case f Yose, Livingston, & Co., against the Lexington and Big Sandy Railroad Company. The amount of the debt was stated to be $14,000, while 242,000 worth of iron had been attached. It was agreed between the connsel, Mr. Taft and Judge Warden, that 350 tons should be discharged from the attachment.

It was listened to by a crowd of ladies and gentlemen, all of whom commend Its ability, notwithstanding some dissent from its views and principles. The State Election. On Monday next, the 3d of August, occurs th"5 annual State election. Being one for judicial and local administrative officers only, it should possess no interest and give occasion to no excitement of a political nature. But such, unfortunately, is not the case. A variety of causes have produced a novel and alarming condition of affairs in Kentucky. The chicanery, the meanness, the intrigues and corruption of politics, have been introduced into the judicial elections of our State, and these we consider portentious of evil. The last Legislature, or lather the Know Nothing majority in that body, brought about this state of case. In redisricting ihe State, there was shameful, palpable tnd avowed for the most base and unworthy par- tizan purposes. In every instance where it was possible, they made the districts such as to insure the election of Know Notliing officers. Edicts were then issued by the Frankfort clique, orderin; nominations by the order, and the breth ren were commmded to support them. This left no alternative to the members of the opposi tion, and they were forced, in to present contending candidates. The contest is, therefore, in many of the districts, solely one of party. The result, however, will afford no safe'" criterion for the November election. Personal friendships and family influence will have their weight next week; which causes will be powerless in the Presidential Election. Still there will be a large Democratic gain, and we confidently anticipate th? election of a majority of Judges of that party all of whom, it is our happiness to know, are eminently quali fied for the positions to which they aspire. 24 50 24 14 24 ill? 4.H u ai ra. 1. ov.

Caledonian tells the following rather tough story: "Net long since a youth of sixteen years was out in the town of Victory, gathering spruce gum. While thus his dog started up a bear, and immediately attacked him. The dog being of a small size, the owner undertook to call him off, and in doing so attracted the attention cf the bear. The lad was armed only with a gumming pole, a stick eight or ten feet in length, with knife blade in one end. The bear made at him with mouth wide open, when the lad thrust the knife end down the bear's throat, killing him almost instantly." Look out roa Wild Cat Money. At St. Louis an arrangement has been made with bankers, by which he notes of the Nebraska Bank are redeemed at par. This bank, we are told, connot be reached at certain seasons of theyear, in less than three months. That is an admirable situation for a bank of circulation. From the Madison Courier we copy the following: Wild-Ca- t Bank. Indiana State Bank. Bloom- fWd; Mining and Manufacturing Company's Bank; liant oi commerce, at romi commerce; the tlkhart HanK, at UKhart; J'owning's Bant of Indiana, at Richland; and the Western Exchange Company's Bank, Indianapolis, are not known at the Auditor of btate s Omce. O A few days since, according to the Boston Traveller, the Massachusetts College of Phar macy made their annual excursion down the harbor. After they were well under way, a steam tug having in tow four scows, took up a position immediately behind, and in this order they went down the harbor. The scows were loaded wi'h human bodies from a grave yard in the city, in the course of removal to Deer Island, and the medical fraternity had performed appropriate escort duty. rFGeo Ketchum and A. S. Sullivan, two of the most distinguished members of the Cincin nati bar, and patriotic Old Line Whigs, have de clared for Buchanan & Breckinridge. The Cin cinnati Enquirer thinks that at least fifteen hun dred Old Line Whigs in that county will vote the Democratic ticket this fall. In a speech the other day, Hon. Humphrey Marshall declared he would "stake his reputa tion upon the assertion that Fillmore would carry seven, if not ten, of the Southern States." For tunately for the Colonel, if his assertion should prove untrue, lb it unquestionably will, he will not sustain a very heavy loss. The Poughkeepsik Elopement Case. The father of the young girl who eloped with a mar ried man from Poughkeepsie, last week, overtook the parties and brought them back. The man is now in prison in that town; his name is Tibbits. 0The Journal, which, it is charged, was bought for a price by the "People's Bank" mana gers, still continues its war upon the Bank of Kentucky.

For the Louisville Courier The Safe Course. e Two friendly neighbors, the one Whig, the ot'aer a firm Democrat, neither of fliem ultra men, recently met and calmly entered into the fol lowing interlocutory: Democrat My good neighbor, I feel great solid tude and anxiety more than I ever did in regard to the threatening aspect of our political affairs. All considerate conservative men apprehend real danger impending, and threatening the peace and stability of our republican institutions and the Union itself. Have you thonght seriously on the subject? Whiff I have; and aside from all partizan proclivities and feelings, I am constrained to say. that it becomes all good, conservative, wise men to lay aside all former political animosities and prejudices and come forward openly and boldly to the rescue, in that way which may appear to them most favor able and successful. Dem. Just so; let me freely and fiankly say to you, that I can see but one course to be adopted to secure this desirable object. There are now three candidates for the Presidency before the people. Two of these are political both abolitionists, whose proclivities and prin ciples are hostile to the institutions and interests of tneboutn. rillmore, who has no chance for election, it is generally believed will evaporate by fusion or amalgamation with the Black Republican party, the Northern Abolitionists, and thereby secure the election of Fremont. Should there be no choice by the people, then the election is thrown into the lower house of Congress. With its present Abolig tion, renjority, Fremont will be the President, and with such men as Seward Sumner, Wilson, Giddings, Ac, as his aids and dictators, it is not hard to tell what will be the fate of our Union. In the hands of such men "the Union must slide. Now, mark ye what I say, and call me a fake prophet if it shall not be so. Whig I think this is all quite plausible, and I have great fears on the subject. But what is the course to be adopted, you intimated just now, to secure success against this calamity?

If it is true, as said, that brevity is "the soul ol wr, then the Journal s version of Washing ton's letter to Adams, of date November 27, 1794, is replete with an article which has of late been sadly wanting in the columns of that sheet, wi, of which it has none "a plentiful lack"; the nearest approach to it found (in these days of its degeneracy) in the columns of that vast conduit of the Journal, is a certain blackguard rudeness which tickles the groundlings, and a specious of highfalution ex travagance of denunciation that finds favor with fanaticism, and sometimes extorts a smile from sensible people by its stupendous disregard of truth. Uf th. so. t is the article and argument in which the above noticed lotter is found. The reader will perceive that this letter of V ashington s is a reply to one from some other party, and that no political propos tion was in tended tj be discussed by it; it was written in anwer to one from Mr. Adams, u;on the sub. ject of transplanting the anciant college of G n- eva, the most profound in Europe, and which had been demolished by the revolution tj the United btates of America. Mr. Jefferson had, also, written to Washington upon this subject. Mr. Jefferson, in his letter to Washington of date of iMol February, 17'Jo, says: "M.

Mr. Jefferson, as was Mr. Adams, was slronwlv in favor of the project, if a suffici.-n- t sum of money could be raised with which to carry out the project, and so wrote to Wash;ngton.

At a meeting or the Whig State Central Committee, held in the CitT of Boston on the morning .f Jaly 21, 1306, a Urge mmber of mem bers of the party was present, by invitation, for the purpo e of consultation upon public affairs. The resmt or their Ueubetatious was a resolution to call a general convention of the Wbijs of Massachusetts, to be halden in Boston on the 3d day r.f September next, a notice of which has been already published. " It was als j resolved that a brief address in th meantime should be put forth for the consideration of the Whig voters of the Commonwealth. In the discharge of the latter obiization. and in view of tbe fact that it was deemtd best to defer decisive action until the fairer oi uortuuitT for general discussion and tor the formation of delibe rate and opinions should be afforded by the meeting of the convention, tbe committee do not feel it necessary for them to enter into any formal exposition of nartv doetricts. or to do any thing more than recur to those leading principles which they conceive to form some of the verv ele ments of public duty. The Whigs of Massachusetts may well feel the high and generous satisfaction that they have hitherto constituted a party of principle. The plana and motives of policy are more or less temporary.
