17.0*0,000 Non-Producers. Accofdirig to the estimate ofthe Orow-lgg portion of jthe Clique, made in the Courthouse, pn sThursday evening last; " There are, in the |United States, but 897,000 persons engaged in all the various branches of manufacture, and 3,000,000 iu agriculture." Now, if ithi| be true, will that expounder of new dogmi|s inform us what occupation the other 17,0(|0,000 follow ? Wlien speakers make statements, such as the above, before an enlightened audience, there can be no reliance placed upon the inferences Jwhich they draw, or respect he paid to their judgment. We cannot so distrust the intelligence of the public as to believe that fi'bcli displays of preemption and arrogance4vill have tlie slightest effect upon tlieir volesj, at the coming- election. Thissnnie youth is now traversing this County; delivering speeches and trying to humbug tllpse he deems ignorant, into the support, Qfjtlie Anti-American Tariff of'4X5, and wecoptne he will be caught, if wat...

| For tlie People.* Advocate. Progressive Democracy. " Men and thiiigs change" was the heading of an article jivbich appeared in a neighboring print afc^r months since, and whether the writer alluded to his own political career, which' it go fitly describes, or whether to the party of which he is chief fugleman, I am at a joss to determine. That it will apply to the latter, any one who is at all observant, ^cahncjt fail to see.

Miserable SnutorfTngi*. a tew days since, as we are informed, Mr. Wilmot, in a speech at Rush, aiuf other ,places, attempted jto show- that a Tariff; protective in its features, is Anti-d 2moeraticT and that his course is in strict accordance with the laud narksslaid down by the Fathers jof Democracy, in this district, by asserting ?that Hon. A.XH. Read, now deceased, voted against the-Tariff act of '42, notwithstanding his speech hi behalf of its protective qualities. That Mr.JXmd voted against tlje Bill, as first dra\fn up, is true; but still he did not oppose its i>rotection. He wished to see it amended, by striking off the duty on tea and coffee. The Bill passed both Hbuses, and was sent to tlie President, for hife sanction); but he vetoed it.

About eleven o'clock, A. M., every dny,!'|the little round vegetables were put in tlie camp kettles, and in an hour or probi&ly ap hour and a half were served out. JTo those skilled in the matter of dried beajps, we need not explain how little effect §ne hour's boiling would have upon them.| The different messes cracked away, however, chewed the hard pebbles up, and left offtheir meals in a very unsatisfied manner; A few days had scarcely elapsed, when <%eneral grumble was set in motion against the Commissary Department, uncle Sam, and the beans in particular.
