WHIG MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 24 September 1846

WHIG MEETING. We insert below the proceedings of the Whig ■ meeting for tho nomination of delegates to tha Suite, County und District Convention*!, The business was conducted with unaoiitiiity, and the citizens were addressed hi the intervals between the Humiliations of Delegates and the Cily Committee with great animation by Messrs Ingersol & Burlinnma, on the importance of the coming elections. The Whigs of Cambridge are wont to warm gradually to tho contest, but usuully, when the day arrives, uppenr in lull ranks, well equipped, and ucquit themselves well. They hare a serious duty to perform iv the present degraded condition uf ihe country from misrule, and we trust thai, so fur from losing ground, they will extend iheir boundaries nnd defend them faithfully.

Revenue Standard.- —Mr. Reverdy Johnson, in his Speech in the Senate on the Tariff bill, thus commented on the theory of the Secretary of the Treasury concerning B Heccnue Standard. The Secretary says in Ins report, (what I have tried in vain to understand) thai M whilst it is impo.'sible to adopt any horizontal scale of duties, or even any arbitrary maximum, experience proves that, ns a general rule, a duty of twenty per cent ad valorem will yield the largest revenue." What in the name uf common sense does this mean ? He cannot mean what he says, for we have no experiince upon the subject. What then does he mean? lias Nature herself lived a standard of revenue ? It has been said heretofore, that there is such a thing as "a natural rate of duty " —a natural rate of duties fur all revenue bills every where, in all nations, and at all tunes, a kind of physical law ! n law istablised for us by our Creator, applicable to nil commodities, under all circumstances, and at all times.

Communicated for the Chronicle. THE SCHOOLS OF CAMBRIDGE-No. 3. Since we all seem to be agreed that tbe present expenses or ihn schools are neither oppressive nor unreasonable, and since no one denies that the school system of Cambridge is equal to thai of any olher cily or lown in the Commonwealth, it muy bo deemed unnecessary to trouble the public, on the subject, further. But us we like lo see errors corrected, and Irulh, by whomsoever elicited, in the ascendant, we beg leave lo examine a little some of tho statistics of X. Y.

Maine Election.—-Wo give below returns from 340 towns nnd plantations in the State of Maine, comprising the whole ofthe State, wilh the exception of Aroostook and a few small towns and plantations which will not affect the result. In these, the net Loco Foco loss since lust year is 56.V2, arid the majority against Dana more ihan five thousand ! litis will not be materially reduced. Tbe Whigs have a small majority in the House, and hope to increase it hy the filling of vacant districts. The four Lincoln Senators are in doubt, but the chances are in favor ofthe election of the Whigs, as they run very considerably above the Governor's vote in several towns. Mammons (Loco) is elected to Congress by about two hundred majority in the First District, and Belcher (Whig) in ihe Third—but we are inclined to the belief that there lias been no election in any other District. A careful revision ofthe returns of the Seventh District convinces us that there can hardly have been an election. In our...
