DELrvZRED AT LotirvissA, KNTrucKY, Seze 29, 1852.

LADIEs AMD GENTLEMEN : I am very sensibleof the dif-
ficulty and magnitude of the task which I haveundertaken.
I amn to address you in commemoration of the public
services of HEZNn CLAY, and. in celebration of is obse-
quies. His death filled his whole country with mourn-
ing, and the loss of no citizen, save the Father of his
Country, has ever produced such manifestations rof the
grief and homage of the .public heart. His history has
indeed been read "in a nation's eyes." A nation's
tears proclaim, with their silent eloquence, its sense of
the national loss. Kentucky has more than a common
shara in this national bereavement. To her it isa dumni.
tic grief-to her belongs the sad privilege of being the
chief mourner. He was her favorite sun. her pride, and
her glory. She mourns for him as a mother. But let her
not mourn as those who have no hope of consolation. She
can find the richest and the noblest solace in the memory
of her son, and, of his great and good actions; and his
fame will come back, like a comforter from his grave, to
wipe away her tears Even while she weeps for himn hr
tears shall be minLgled with the proud feelings of triumph
which his name will inspire; and Old Kentucky, from the
depths of her affectionate and her,,ic heart, shall exclaim,
like the Duke orf Ormond, when informed that his brave
sai had fallen in battle, "1 wuuld not exohang-. my dead
son for any living son in CLristcnd.um."
From these same abundant sources we may hope that
the widowed partner of rbis life, who now sits in sadness at
Ashland, will derve e.:.me pleasing consolation. I pre-
sume not to offer any words of comfort of my own. Her
grief is too sacred to permit me ut.: use that privilege.
Yon, Bons and Dauguters of Kentucky, bv ae eeiul.1i:
here to commemurlste his life and death. How .:in I a-l-
dresap you suitably on such a theme ? I feel the oppres-
sive coosciousneas that 1 cannot du it in tlermro adequate
to the subject, or to your excited feelings. lam no Ora-
tor, nor have I ounmo here to attempt any idle or vain-
glorious display of words; 1 come as a plain Kentuckin,
who. sympathizing in all your feelings, presents you with
this address, as his poor offering, L. te 1.id upon thati
altar -which you are here reacting to the nifm).ry of
HENssY CLAY. Let it no t be judged according to its own
value, but according to the spirit in which it is offered.
It would be no dtficahl task to address you on this oc-
casion in the extravagant and rhetorical langiiuage that is
usual in funeral orations. But my sFibjt'Ct deserves a
different treatment. The monumental name of HENRY
C' t Iritses above all mere personal favor and fiattery- it
rejects them, and challenges the scrutiny and the judg-
ment of the world. The noble uses to which his name
should be applied is to teach his country, by his example,
lessons of public virtue and political wisdom; to teach
patriots and statesmen how to act, how to live, and how
to die. I can but glance at a subject that spreads out in
such bright and boundless expanse before me.
HzxsT CLAY lived in a most eventful period, and the
history of his life for forty years has been literally that
of his country. He was so identified with the Govern-
ment for more than two-thirds of its existence, that dur-
ing that time hardly any act, which has redounded to its
honor, its prosperity, its present rank among the nations
of the earth, can be spoken of without calling to mind in-
voluntarily the lineaments of his noble person. It would
be difficult to determine whether in peace or in war; in
the field of legislation or of diplomacy; in the spring-
tide of his life, or in its golden ebb, he won the highest
honor. It can be no disparagement to any one of his
contemporaries to say, that, in all the points of practical
statesmanship, he encountered no superior in any of the
employment which his constituents or his country con-
ferred upon him.
For the reason that he had been so much and so con-
stantly in the public eye, an elaborate review of his life
will not be expected of me. All that I shall attempt will
be to sketch a few leading traits, which may serve to give
those who have had fewer opportunities of observation
than I had, something like a just idea of his public cha-
racter and services. If, in doing this, I speak more at
large of the earlier than of the later period of his life, it
is because, in regard to the former, though of vast conse-
quence, intervening years have thrown them somewhat in
the back ground.
Passing by, therefore, the prior service of Mr. Clay in
the Senate for 'brief periods in 1806 and '10-'11, I come
at once to his Speakership in the House of Representa-
tives, and his consequent agency in the war of 1812.
To that war our country Is indebted for much of the
security, freedom, prosperity, and reputation which it
now enjoys. It has been truly said by one of the living
actors in that perilous era, [Hon. Mr. RusH,] that the
very act of going to war was heroic. By the supremacy of
the naval power of England, the fleets of all Europe had
been swept from the seas; the banner of the United
States alone floated in solitary fearlessness. England
seemed to encircle the eaxh with her navies, and to be
the undisputed mistress of the ocean. We went out upon
the deep with a sling in our hands. When, in all time,
were such fearful odds seen as we had against us?
The events of the war with England, so memorable,
and even wonderful, are too familiar to all to require any
particular recital on this occasion. Of that war-of its
causes and consequences-of its disasters, its bloody bat-
tles, and its glorious victories by land and sea, history,
and our own official records, have given a faithful narra-
tive. A just national pride has engraven that narrative
upon our hearts. But even in the fiercest conflicts of
that war there was nothing more truly heroic than the
declaration of it by Congress.
Of that declaration-of the incidents, personal influ-
ences, and anxious deliberations, which preceded and led
to it-the history is not so well or generally known. The
more it is known," the more it will appear how important
was the Part that Mr*Clay acted, and how much we are
indebted to him for all the glorious and beneficial issues
otf the declaration of that war, which has not inappro-
priately been called the Second War of Independence.
The public grounds of the war were the injustice, in-
jury, and insults inflicted on the United States by the
'Government of Great Britain, then engaged in a war of
maritime edicts with France, of which the commerce of
the United States was the victim; our merchant ships
being captured by British cruisers on every sea, and con-
fiscated by her courts, in utter contempt of the rights of
this nation as an independent Power. Added to this,
and more offensive than even those outrages, was the ar-
rogation, by the same Power, of a right to search American
vessels, for the purpose of impressing seamen from ves-
sels sailing under the American flag. These aggressions
upon our national rights constituted, undoubtedly, justi-
fiable cause of war. With equal justice on our part, and
on the same grounds, impressmentt of seamen excepted,)
we should have been warranted in declaring war against
France also; but common sense (not to speak of policy)
forbade our engaging with two nations at once, and dic-
tated the selection, as an adversary, of the one that had
power, which the other had not, to carry its arbitrary
edicts into full effect. The war was really, on our part, a
war for national existence.
When Congress assembled in November, 1811, the crisis
was upon us. But, as may be readily imagined, it could
be no easy matter to nerve the heart of Congress, all un-
prepared for the dread encounter, to take the step, which
there could be no retracing, of a declaration of war.
Nor could that task, in all prubabltt.v, ever have been
accomplished, but for the concurrence, purely accidental,
of two circumstances: the une, the presence of Henry
Clay in the chair of the popular branch of the National
Legislature : and the other, that of James Monroe, as
Secretary of Slate, in the Executive Administration of
the Government.
Mr. Monroe had returned but a year or two before

from a course of public service abroad, in which, as Min-
ister Plenipotentiary, he had represented the United
States at the several courts, in succession, of France,
Spain, and Great Britain. From the last of these mis-
sions he had come home thoroughly disgusted with the
contemptuous manner in which the rights of the United
'States were treated by the belligerent Powers, and espe-
cially by England. This treatment, which even extended
to the personal intercourse between their Ministers and
the representatives of this country, he considered as in-
dicative of a settled determination en their parts-pre-
suming upon the supposed incapacity of this Government
for war-to reduce to sapeten a course of conduct calculated
to debase and prostrate us in the eyes of the world. Rea-
soning thushe had brought his mind to a serious and firm
conviction that the rights of the United States, as a na-
tion, would never be respected by the Powers of the Old
World until this Government summoned up resolution to
resent such usage, not by arguments and protests merely,
but by an appeal to arms. Full of this sentiment, Mr.
Monroe was called, upon a casual vacancy, when it was
least expected by himself or the country, to the head of
the Department of State. That seniument, and the feel-
ings which we have ihus accounted for, Mr. Monroe soon
communicated to his associates in the Cabinet, and, in
some degree, it might well be supposed, to the great
statesman then at the head of the Government.
The tone of President Madison's first message to Con-
gress, (November 6, 1811,) a few months only after Mr.
Monroe's accession to the Cabinet, can leave hardly a
doubt in any mind of such having been the case. That
message was throughout of the gravest cast, reciting the
aggressions and aggravalionsof Great Britain, as demand.
mg resistance, an urging upon Congres the rlutyv of

putting the country "into an armor and an attitude de-
nanded by the crisis and corresponding with the national
pi r; and expectations."'
S It was precisely at this pint of time that Mr. Clay,
having resigned his seat in the Seuate. appeared on the
floor of the House of R Rpresentative&. and was ch.beli,
almost by aci-lamAi,.n,u Sp.-akerorf that body. From thai
mnirueil he exercised an ;inilien.-e, in a great degree per-
sa.,nal. which materially ,tlrcted, if it did not control, the
judgment of the Rouse. Am...nig the very first acts which
devilvel uponhim by virtue of hi, ,fli':e wn.1 the aspint-
ment of the committees raised upon the Pretida-ut's mc.i-
sage. Upon the select committee of nine members to
which was referred so much of the message as relates
to our frreign releti,ns," h': appointed a large pr.,pi'i Lin
from among the fat friends of the Administrati.i,, icarly
all of them being new m-mbers, and younger than him-
self, though he was not then more than thirty-five years
of age. It is impossible, at this day, to call to mind the
names of which this committee was composed, (Porter,
Calhoun, and Grundy being the first named among them,)
without coming to the conclusion that the committee was
constituted with a view to the event predetermined in the
mind of the Speaker. There can be no question that
when, quitting the Senate, Mr. CLAY entered the Repre-
sentative body, he had become satisfied that, by the con-
tinued encroachments of Great Britain on our national
-rights, the choice of the country was narrowed down-to
war or submission. Between these there could be no he-
sitation in such a mind as that of Mr. Clay which to
choose. In this emergency he acted for his country as
he would, in a like case, have acted 'fr himself. Desir-
ing and cultivating the good will of all, he never shrank
from any personal responsibility, nor cowered before any
danger. More than a year before his accession to the
House of Repre-nniaicvei he had, in a debate in the Sen-
ate, taken occasion to say that "he most sincerely desired
peace and amity with England; that he even preferred an
adjustment of all differences with her to one with any
other nation ; but, if she persisted in a denial of justice
to us, he trusted and hoped that all hearts would unite in
a bold and vigorous vindication of our rights." It was in
this brave spirit, animated to increased fervency by inter-
vening aggressions from the same quarter, that Mr. CLAY
entered into the House of Representatives.
Early in the second month of the session, availing him-
self of the right then freely used by the Speaker, -to en-
gnage in di:,'.is the Whole, he.,lishel it to the debates upon the measures
of military ,and naval [rreprafti.,ri recommended by the
President, and reported upon favorably by the committee.
He avowed, without reserve, that the object of this pre-
paration was war, and war with Great Britain.
In these debates he showed his familiarity with.all the
'weapons of popular oratory. In a tempest of eloIonence,
in which he wielded alternately argument, persussi.,n,
remonstrance, ridicule, and reproach, he swept before
him all opposition to the high resolve to which he ex-
horted Congress. To the argument (for example) against
preparing for a war with England, founded upon the idea
of her being engaged, in her conflict with France, in
fighting the battles of the world, he replied that such a
purpose would be best achieved by a scrupulous obser-
vance of the rights of others, and by respecting that
public law which she professed to vindicate. Then,"
said he, "she would command the sympathies of the
world. But what are we required to do by those who
would engage our feelings and wishes in her behalf?
To bear the actual cuffs of her arrogance, that we may es-
cape a chimerical French subjugation. We are called
upon to submit to debasement, dishonor, and disgrace;
to bow the neck to royal insolence, as a course of pre-
paration for manly resistance to Gallic invasion! What
nation, what individual, was ever taught in the schools
of ignominious submission these patriotic lessons of free-
dom and independence !" And to the argument that this
Government was unfit for any war but a war against in-
vasion-so signally since disproved by actual events-he
exclaimed, with characteristic vehemence, What! is it
not equivalent to invasion, if the mouth of our harbors
and outlets are blocked up, and we are denied egress
from our own waters ? Or, when the burglar is at our
door, shall we bravely sally forth and repel his fellonious
entrance, or meanly skulk within the cells of the castle ?
What! shall it be said that our amor patriw
is located at these desks; that we pusillanimously cling
to our seats here, rather than boldly vindicate the most
inestimable rights of our country ?"
Whilst in debate upon other occasions, at nearly the
same time, he showed how well he could reason upon
a question which demanded argument rather than de-
clamation. To his able support of the proposition of
Mr. CHEVES to add to our then small but gallant navy
ten frigates, may be ascribed the success, though by
a lean majority, of that proposition. Replying to
the objection urged with zeal by certain members, that
navies were dangerous to liberty, he argued that the
source of this alarm was in themselves. "Gentlemen
fear," said he, "that if we provide a marine, it will
'produce collision with foreign nations, plunge us into
war, and ultimately overturn the constitution of the
country. Sir, if you wish to avoid foreign collision,
'you had better abandon the ocean, surrender all your
commerce, give up all your prosperity. It is the thing
protected, not the instrument of protection, that in-
volves you in war. Commerce engenders collision, col-
'lision war, and war, the argument supposes, leads to
despotism. Would the counsels of that statesman bo
deemed wise, who would recommend that the nation
should be unarmed; that the art of war, the martial
spirit and martial exercises, should be prohibited; who
should declare, in a word, that the great body of the
people should be taught that national happiness was to
be found in perpetual peace alone ?"
While Mr. CLAY, in the Capitol, was, with his trumpet
tongue,. rousing Congress to prepare for war, Mr. MON-
noN, the Secretary of State, gave his powerful co-opera-
tion, and lent the Nestor-like sanction of his age and ex-
perience to the bold measures of his young and more
ardent compatriot. It was chiefly through their fearless
influence that Congress was gradually warmed up to a
war spirit, and to the adoption of some preparatory mea-
sures. But no actual declaration of war had yet been
proposed. There was a strong opposition in Congress,
and the President, Mr. MADISON, hesitated to recommend
it, only because he doubted whether Congress was yet
sufficiently determined and resolved to maintain such a
declaration, and to maintain it to all the extremities of
The influence and counsel of Mr. CLAY again prevailed.
He waited upon the President, at the head of a deputation
of Members of Congress, and assured him of the readi-
ness of a majority of Congress to vote the war if recom-
mended by him. Upon this the President immediately
recommended it by his message to Congress of the first
Monday of June, 1812. A bill declaring war with Great
Britain soon followed in Congress, and, after a discussion
in secret session for a few days, became a law. Then
began the war.
When the doors of the House of Representatives were
opened, the debates which had taken place in secret ses-
sion-were spoken of and repeated, and it appeared, as
must have been expected by all, that Mr. Clay had been
the great defender and champion of the declaration of
Mr. CLAY continued in the House of Representatives
for some time after the commencement of the war, and
having assisted in doing all that could be done for it in
the way of legislation, was withdrawn from his position
in Congress to share in the deliberations of the great Con-
ference of American and British Commissioners held at
Ghent. His part in that Convention was such as might
have been expected from his course in Congress, high-
toned and high-spirited, despairing of nothing.
I need not add, but for form, that, acting in this spirit,
Mr. Clay and his patriotic and able associates succeeded
beyond all the hbpes at that time entertained at home in
making a treaty, which, in putting a stop to the war, if
it did not accomplish every thing contended for, saved and
secured at all points the honor of the United States.
Thus, began and ended the war of 1812. On our part
it was just and necessary, and, in its results, eminently
beneficial and honorable.
The benefits of it have extended to all the world; for
in vindicating our own maritime rights we established the
freedom of the seas to all nations, and since then no one

of them has arrogated or exercised any supremacy upon
that ocean, given by the Almighty as the common and
equal inheritance of all.
To HENRY CLAY, as its chief mover and author, belongs
the statesman's portion of the glory of that war; and to
the same Henry Clay, as one of the makers and signers
of the treaty by which it was terminated, belong the
blessings of the peace-maker. His crown is made up of
the jewels of peace and of war.
Prompt to take up arms to resent our wrongs and vin-
dicate our national rights, the return of peace was yet
gladly hailed by the whole country. And well it might
be. Our military character, at the lowest point of degra-
dation when we dared the fight, had been retrieved; the
national honor, insulted at all the courts of gurope, had
been redeemed; the freedom of the seas secured to our
flag and all who sail under it; and, what was most influ-
ential in inspiring confidence at home, and assuring re-
spect abroad, was the demonstration, by the result of the
late conflict, of the competency of this Government for
effective war, as it had before proved itself for all the du-
ties of a season of peace.
The Congress which succeeded the war, to a seat in
which Mr. Clay was elected whilst yet abroad, exhibited
the features of a national jubilee, in place of the gravity
and almost gloom which had settled on the countenance
of the same body during the latter part of the war and of
the conferences at Ghent. Joy shone on every face. Just-
ly ha" that period been termed the era of good feeling."

HENRY CLAY was fhe fair representative of the age in
which he lived; an age which forms the great and bright-
estera in the history of man; an age teeming with new
discoveries and developments, extending in all directions
the limits of human knowledge, exploring the agencies
and elements of the physical world, and turning and sub-
jugating them to the use of man; unfoldling and estab.
lishiog ptaliceally the great principles ,.1 po.u'ui rniits
an] firee governments. and which, nothing doubting, no-
thing fearing, still advances in majcsty, aspiring to and
demnanmdling jiurthcr improvement and further ameliora-
tiou of the condition of mankind.
With the chivalrous and benignant spirit of this great
era Henry Cloy was thoroughly imbuod. He was indeed
moulded by it, and made in its own image. That spirit,
be it remembered, was not one of li'-entiounsanes, or tur-
lhulence, or tblind innvuvation. It was a wise spirit, good
and horinet as it was resolute and brave aud truth and
justice were its c-mpan].us and guides.
-TLese noble qualities of truth and justice were cou.
-picuous in the whole public life of ,Mr. Clay. On that
solid foundation he stored, erect and fearless; and when
the storms of State beat around and threatened to over-
whelm hunim, his exclamation was etill heard, truth is
mighty and public justice certain." What a magnificent
and heroic figure does HmsNv Ct.vY here present t) the
world! We .:an hut stand hef,,re and look upon it in silent
reverence. His appeal was not in vain; the passions of
party subsided: truth and justice resumed their sway,
and hie generous countrymen repaid him, for all the
wrong they ha.d done, with gratitude, affection, and ad-
miration in his life, and with tears for his death.
It has been objected to HENRY CLAY that he was am-
bitious. So he was. But in him ambition w-as a virtue.
It sought only the proper, fair objects of honorable am-
bition, and it sought these by honorable means only-by
so serving the country as to deserve its favors and its ho-
nors. If he sought office, it was for the purpose of en-
abling him, by the power it would give, to serve his coun-
try more effectually and pre-eminently; and, if he expect-
ed and desired thereby to advance his own fame, who will
say that was a fault? Who will say that it was a fault
to seek and to desire office for any of the personal gratifi-
cations it may afford, so long as those gratifications are
made subordinate to the public good?
That Henry Clay's object in desiring office was to serve
his country, and that he would have made all other con-
siderations subservient, I have no doubt. I knew him
well; I had full opportunity of observing him in his most
unguarded moments and conversations, and I can say
that I have never known a more unselfish, a more faith-
ful or intrepid representative ,:.f the people, of the people's
rights, and the people's interests than Henry Clay. It
was most fortunate for Kentucky to have such a repre-
sentative, and most fortunate for him to have such a con-
stituent as Kentucky-fortqaate for him to have been
thrown, in the early and susceptible period of his life,
into the primitive society ofiter buld and free people. As
one of her children, I am pleased to think that from that
source he derived some of the magnannimity and energy
which his after life so signally displayed. I am pleased
to think that, mingling with all his great qualities, there
was a sort of Kentuckyism, (I shall notundertaketo define
it,) which, though it may not have polished or refined,
gave to them additional point and power, and a freer
scope of action.
Mr. CLAY was a man of profound judgment and strong
will. He never doubted or faltered; all his qualities were
positive and peremptory; and to his convictions of pub-
lic duty he sacrificed every personal consideration.
With but little knowledge of the rules of logic or of
rhetoric, he was a great debater and orator. There was
no art in his eloquence, no studied contrivances of lan-
guage. It was the natural outpouring of a great and ar-
dent intellect. In his speeches there were none of the
trifles of mere fancy and imagination; all was to the sub-
ject in hand, and to the purpose; and they may be re-
garded as great actions of the mind rather than fine dis-
plays of words. I doubt whether the eloquence of De-
mosthenes or Cicero ever exercised a. greater influence
over the minds and passions of the people of Athens and
of Rome than did Mr. Clay's over the minds and passions
of the people of the United States.
You all knew Mr. CLAY: your knowledge and recollec-
tion -of him will present him more vividly to your minds
than any picture I can draw of him. This I will add: he
was, in the highest, truest cense of the term, great man,
and we ne'er stqJll l.ok up..,n his like again. He has gone
t. join tLhe mighty dead in another and better world.
li w little is thereof such a man thatcan die! His fame,
the memory of his benefactions, the lessons of his wis-
dom, all renmain with us; over these death hasno power.
How few of the great of this world have been so fortu-
nate as he! How few of them have lived to see their la-
bors so rewarded. He lived to see the country that he
loved and served advanced to great prosperity and re-
nowi, and still advancing. He lived till every prejudice
which, at any period of his life, had existed against him,
waszremoved; and until he had become the object of the
reverence, gratitude, and love of his whole country. His
work seemed then to be completed, and fate could not
have selected a happier moment to remove him from the
troubles and vicissitudes of this life.
Glorious as his life was, there was nothing that became
him like the leaving of it. I saw him frequently during
the slow and lingering disease which terminated his life.
He was conscious of his approaching end, and prepared
to meet it with all the resignation and fortitude of a
christian hero. He was all patience, meekness, and gen-
tleness; these shone around him like a mild, celestial
light, breaking upon him from another world.
"And, to add greater honors to his age
"Than man could give, he died fearing God."

Extracts from Letrs received in this city.
BALTIXORs.-"-You may put down Maryland certainly
for SoOT and GaHA Mfrom 2,000 and upwards majority.
A residence in this city for more than fifty years enables
me to speak with great confidence as to the accuracy of
my statement "
HAO-SSTOWN.-- Our German population. are with us
generally, and many of them are active politicians, and
work nobly in the good cause. [ have no doubt that Gen.
Scott will got Tsyl.r's majority at least in this county,
,tnr l,'idredand fi,-.four; and some think hewrll go above
it. Let every place do as well as this county andno Whig
need despair."'.
RorKvILLS1.-" You may look for good returns from old
Montgomery; and do not be surprised if Scott's majority
is 60 or 100 beyond Clay or Taylor's in '44 or '4A."
SrEUBastvLE.-"We expect to tell a good story after
the election for ',Old Fuss and Feathers.'"'
NLw LISBON.-"You may put Ohio down as safe for
Scott and Graham beyond all peradventure. The Whigs
were never more united, nor did a better spirit prevail
amongst them at any time in the last ten years. It is
perfectly absurd to suppose that Western men will sup-
port Mr. Pierce, who when in Congress voted against
every measure in which they were immediately interested."
CouLuBus.-- Reports and estimates from thirty-two
counties show a gain of 12,800 over 1848. They are we
think, mostly reliable. If such should prove to be the
case, we must carry the State by 10,000 majority."
CLEVLAND.-"OUn my way here I became acquainted
with a number of Obio men The Whigs express them-
selves with great assurance with regard to the result."
"They arc in high spirits and confident of success. Mr.
B told me to write that we know we shall carry Ohio."
CBca:.'.-" Every thing in our State is working thus
far to our satisfaction. I think that Douglas, instead of
speaking in twenty-eight States, will fin d as much as ha
can do to attend to his own."
CJcOAOO -"The prospect of carrying the State for
Scott iucre4se as the efforts to do so are made; and the
confidence manifested that such a thing is in our power,
ift we only work tor it, increases every day. Unless some-
thing disastrous occurs, my Individual opinion is that we
shall do so upon a very largo Whig vote by a small ma-
jority. We feel confident of Washburne's election, and
we expect to carry the 3d and 5th districts, with a good
chance for the 2d, 4th, 6th, and 7th; that is, an even
chance, if the ground is properly debated."
"The Whig ball is rolling rapidly and increasing in our
State. Louisiana, you may put down as certain for the
good old General; and our accounts from Mississippi are
of the most cheering character. In the neighboring coun-
ty of Amite, in that State, there have been fifty changes
in favor of Gen. Scott. Pierce is declining in the estima.
tion of the people of the South daiy. We are anticipat-
ing a perfect Waterloo or Harrison defeat of our oppo-
nents in November, and trusting that we shall see it
MILWAUKEE.-" The campaign begit to promise well.
Our Whigs are quietly but actively at work. We shall
improve every where upon the vote of 1848."
CARBON COUNTY.-" I confidently believe that we shall
be able to reduce the Locofoco majority two or three huvn-
dred in this county."
SOHUYLKILL COUNTY.-" Fifteen hundred majority will
not be too high a figure for our county."
BRADFORD COUNTY.-" The Democratic majority in this 4
county, usually ranges from 500 to 700. We reduced this
in 1844 in favor of Mr. Clay to about 300. I think we
shall do full as well for Gen. Scott. If other counties
stand as fair, I have no apprehensions as to the result in "
Pennsylvania. In no county in the State, nor in the
Union, does there reside a more sturdy, reliable set of
Whigs than in Bradford. I entertain no fear that they
will discredit the reputation they gained in 184* of giving
the largest increased vete for Henry Clay in the State and
for carrying the county for Taylor in 1848."
COLumBUs.-" We are working manfully in Mississippi,
and even have hopes of carrying the State. We feel con-
fident of Scott's election."
VINCENNES.-" Gen. Scott is marching on the capitol l
We are certainly gaining ground, and cannot hear of our
losing any where in the State. About here we will get
more foreigners to vote for Gen. Scott than we ever got
for any Whig President."
NEW HAVEN.-" I find the state of things here all I
could desire. The utmost enthusiasm prevails, and a
strong confidence is felt in the ability of the Whigs to carry
the State."
WABnKOusE POINT.-", Things look well for Scott in old
Connecticut. They are getting the steam well up, and
the Whigs in the other parts of the Union may rely upon
this State as sure for Scott and Grahom."
&ENEOA FALLS.-" I am perfectly satisfied that we shall
carry this State by a large majority. Things never look-
ed as well in this section of the State as now, not even in
1840. The Loco game of brag is about out, a4d the re-
action is tremendous. You may set this State down for
Scott and Graham, and no mistake."

FZLLOW-CITIZENS: The continued indisposition or my
family, since the adjournment of the late protracted ses-
sion of Congress, has detained me in this city. It was my
anxious desire tu have returned to Florida, and become
an -etive participant in the pending canvass. That desire
has been increased, since I have learned that someia of my
good friends doubt, and others affitr, that the entireWhig
ticket does not receive my cordial support. This is nrot
so; no such doubt is justified by any word, act, or deed
on my part. If I could have promptly returned to Florida,
after the adjoqnmenat 'of Congress, and -have met you in
Free and familiar intercourse, my position could not have
been doubted or misapprehended. This would have been
more congenial to my feelings and habits than address-
-thg you individually or collectively in writing.
I flatter myself that none can doubt my position as a
firm. decided, and consistent Whig. I am always ready
and fully prepared to support the candidates of my party,
if I am satisfied they will advocate and carry out Whig
principles, if elected. Mly motto is, princples i'rat, ,men qf-
treawrds. As a public man, I trust my coarse has satis-
fled you that I have never been a blind follower of party,
and that I never would fr'llow my party if there was a de-
viation from thegreat principles upon which itsorganiza-
lion depends. I have ev,:r been indflul that I have a
country to serve, as well as a party to obey.
In giving a cordial and zealuus support to the entire
Whig ticket (both National and Sitate) now submitted to
you, I act in strict accordance with ihe theory and prac-
rice of the principles I pro'fes As the State elections
will have Lranspired bef'ure this reaches y...u, I shall corn-
fine my observations to the Whig nominations for Preui,
dent and Vice President,, with the single remark, that,
could I be present, It would afford me sincere gratifica-
tion to east my v.,te for the entire Whig ticket. I am
pleased to leanvu, from my correspondence and the public
prints, that the greatest enthusiasm animates the Whigs
of Florida, and that thtre is a pro-pect, which amount,
almost to certainty. that they Vill secure the election of
* Governor, Ropresentative in Congress, and the Legi.Aa-
I was honuaored by the Whigs of Florida with the ap-
pointment of delegate to the National. Whig Convention
which met at Baltimore in June last. Your delegates
vere instructed to insist, as a condition precedent, be-
fore proceeding to make nominations for President and
Vice President, that the Convention should put forth a
declaration of principles, which should be acceptable to the
South; that being done, we should use all fair and honor-
able means to procure the nomination of Mr. Fillmore for
the Presidency. These instructions it afforded me much
pleasure to respect, as they accorded with my own views,
and were approved by my judgment. The platform of
principles, as required by our instructions, was adopted,
and it was acceptable to the South. The Convention then
proceeded to ballot for candidates, and we used all fair
and honorable means to secure the nomination of Mr.
Fillmore. Although our efforts were unremitting, we
could not succeed in producing such a result. The elec-
tion fell upon another distinguished citizen, General Scott.
The Convention having promptly adopted such a plat-
form of principles as we were required by our instructions
to demand, and having participated in the ballotings, we
imposed upon ourselves an implied, if not express, obliga-
tion to sustain the nQminees. How far the Whigs of
Florida are bound by the acts of their Representatives in
the Convention is a question for their decision. It, how-
ever, appears to me, that, having consented to go into Con-
vention upon a certain condition, and that condition hav-
ing been performed, good faith to our brother Whigs of
the Union requires that the Whigs ef Florida should yield
a cordial, ardent, and zealous advocacy to the candidates
that have been selected. Although General Scott was not
4the first choice of the Whigs of Florida, yet, as his nomi-
nation was fairly made, we, (the delegates,) through our
chairman, Colonel Ward, declared in open Convention
that we acquiesced in the nomination, and had no doubt
our constituents would give to it a generous and hearty
support; and I flatter myself, judging from the "signs of
the times," we did not misjudge their loyalty to the Whig
cause and Whig principles.
I have been a zealous supporter of Mr. Fillmore's Ad-
ministration, and, in common with the Whigs of the South,
I had hoped he would have been selected as our standard
bearer at the ensuing election. The enlightened and na-
tional spirit of his Administration, both as regards our
foreign and domestic policy, has elicited the admiration
and applause of the patriotic of all parties. He has been
true to the Constiiutlun, just to all portions of the Union,
and, amidst the most embarra.sinrg cir:umstanci:i, has en-
forced the maIntenance and execution of the laws of the
land, in such a manager a., to entitle him to be classed
with the patriots and "ages of the better days of the re-
In my opposition to the nomination of General Scott, 1
was not influenced by any doubt as to his orthodoxy as
a Whig, or his being as sound a Mr. Fillm.rc himself on
Sthe Southern question. I neither doubted the one nor the
other; it was not that "I loved Cisar less, but I loved
Rome more:" not that I had an aversion tu General Scott,
but that I had a preference for Mrf Fillmore-not only
ever him, but over all other Whigs in the Union. Admi-
ration and gratitude, as a Southern man, caused me thus
to prefer him.
I have always admired General Scott as a patriot and
soldier; as an American citizen, I have been proud of him
as the "greatest captain of the age," whose exploits have
reflected more lustre upon the country than those of any
man since the days of Washington. General Scott is no
obscure individual-" his light has not been hid under a
bushel." No anxious inquiries are made as to who he is.
His name and services are as familiar to his countrymen
as household words. His fame is co-extensive with the
civilized world. He is emphatically a national man; his
life has been "devoted to the service of his country-his
whole country ; and, if elected, he will be a national, not
a sectional President. Through life he has been true to
the Constitution, and, whenever the duty devolve upon
him, he has seen that the laws of the land are faithfully
executed. Can any one seriously doubt he will hesitate
or halt in the discharge of his high obligations of duty, if
elevated to the Presidential office? All we of the South
ashk at the hands of a President is that our rights under
the Constitution and laws shall be respected and sustain-
ed by him; we demand nothing more; with less we will
never be satisfied.
The opponents of General Scott aver he is a mere soldier,
a me captain, without experience as a civilian, and devoid
of qualifications to carry on the affairs of Government.
Great military talents and administrative abilities are not
incompatible, but, as a general rule, the companions of
each other. Both ancient and modern history sustain the
truth of this assertion. The very position General Scott
now occupies presupposes him to be well versed in na-
tional and municipal law. In the discharge of his milita-
ry duties he has often been placed in positions which

called i4 requisition his knowledge of the laws of nations,
as well as those of his country. He has never faltered,
never erred in their execution. He has been charged by
his Government with many important and delicate diplo-
matic and civil duties, which required something more
than mere military knowledge to discharge. The trusts
thus confided to him have always been executed to the sa-
tisfaction of the country and with honor to himself.
The limits I have prescribed to this communication
forbid me from enlarging upon the important civil duties,
General Scott has from time to time performed. I will
merely call your attention to his missions to the State of
South Carolina, in the days of nullification; to the North-
eastern Boundary, during the disturbances on the borders
of Maine; and to the New York frontier, at the period of
the Canada troubles. His country placed in one hand the
sword, and in the other the olive branch, leaving it to his
own good sense, discretion, and patriotism which he
would use; he always presented the olive branch in pre-
ference to the sword; which showed, although a soldier,
he was a man of peace, and delighted not in "blood and
carnage." The olive branch he always prevailed upon
theat to accept. The ha4aony rstored between Sol4th

Carollna and the General Government, and the friendly
relations re-established between this tcuntry and the
British Provinces, attest the diplomacy and statesmanship
of General Scott. -
The important civil as well as military services ren-
dered by General Scott in Mexico have been so recent,
and are so fresh in the recollections of his countrymen, it
would be a work of supererogation to do more than call
your attention to them. , :
The election of General Scott is objected to by a few
because Governor Seward favored his ubmination. They
express apprehensions that if he is elected, Governor
Seward will more or less control his administration, and
infuse into it some of his higher-law heresies and abo-
minations. Those who thas calculate "reckon without
their host," and evince but little knowledge of the man.
All his antecedents forbid the idea. A m'an accustined to
command for nearly half century is not easily controlled,
much leas likely to'become the willing instrument in the
hands or any man. General Scott under the dictatorial
influence and control of, Governor Sewardl The very
proposition is ridiculous, and carries with it its own refu-
tation. -
Is it not more probable that General Pierce, if elected,
will be controlled by the Van Burens, Dix, Pirestoni King,
Hallet, B. F. Butler, Cleaveland, Wilmot, and the hosts
of abolitionists, who are hi warm, active, and ardent sup-
porters, than that General Scott will be influenced by
Governor Seward?
I have not said any thing about our. nominee for the
Vice Presidency; neither is it necessary I should. Every
one knows 'William A. Graham, of North Carolina. The
whigs of Florida expressed a preference for him in their
meetings anl conventidns. Hle was my first choice for
that office, and I am yet to learn that an objection has
been raised to his nomination by a single Whig in any
section of our country. He is known to be a decided, firm,
and consistentL Whig; a man of high order of intellect, an
able lawyer, a profound statesman, and a gentleman of
most irreproachal.-Te character, who has filled the highest
offices inhis native State, and has served with ,hitinction
in the Senate of the United States and the Cabinet of Mr.
FillmL're. For such a man no Whig-certainly no South-
ern Whig---an or will ref'uoea zeslousand cordial supp.,rt
I have extended this address to.ea greater lengtBkthan I
intended. I eould pot. however, say less, feeling as I do
the deepest solicitude for the success of our can-d'iiatcs in
the Presidential election.
It affords me much gratification to assure you that at
this place, the great focus of information, we receive from
all sections of the Union the most cheering news as to the
prospect of the election of our ticket. The spirit of '40
and '48 animates the yhigs of all 6ec tirns of the country
dissensions, if any there were, have been healed; personal
jealousies have been buried and forgotten; their march is
onward to success in the pending canvass, with the watch-
Florida, I trust, will "take no step backward," bilt, as
in '48, will give a larger majority in proportion to her po-
pulation than any other State in the Union. We shall then
command that consideration and influence with the ad-
ministration of General Scott to which, -as a consistent
Whig State of the South, we are entitled. All this we will
accomplish if the Whigs of Florida are true to themselves
and true to their principles.
Let us bury and forget all real or imaginary griev-
ances, give up our personal predilections, and at the bal-
lot-box in November give for SCOTT and GRAHAM such
an overwhelming majority as will retain for us the posi-
tion we so gloriously won in 1848.
Your friend and fellow-citizen,

SIn: In the New York Herald of the 23d instant I see
my name associated with others as being a defaulter to
the Government in the sum of $868,148, This is the
third or fourth time that I have been charged with being
a defaulter, and as often denied in the most emphatic
manner. I again pronounce the charge entirely false
and groundless. I am not, and never have been, a de-
faulter one dollar. The subjoined certificate will show
that my accounts with the Treasury Department were
closed more than four years ago, and the balance found
to be due me, I received from my successor, the late Gen.
Marriott. You will, I 'doubt not, publish this explanatory
note and certificate in the Herald as an act of justice.

I hereby certify that the accounts of Nathaniel F. Wil-
liams, Esq., late Collector of the Port of Baltimore, were
finally closed on the books of this Department, by report
No. 9,215, under date ef the 6th April, 1848, by which
it appears there was due by the United States to the-said

' Lberty and Union, now and forever, one and
SInseparable." .


We take the earliest opportunity of- spreading
before our readers the EuLOGY pronounced at
Louisville (Ky.) on the 29th ultimo, by the Hon.
J. J. CRITTENDEN, upon the Life and Character
of. his ancient, colleague in the Senale, and his
yet more ancient personal friend and ass'ci.tte,
the lately deceased Patriot and Stitesman, HENRY
CLAY. The present pusitiin of Mr. CRtiriENrEN,
the relations which he has always held to the great
man whose decease has given occasion to this Dis-
course, all demand its insertion at large in our
colu ns ..
We shall not anticipate the judgment of our
readers upon the merits of thi, Oriation. That judg-
ment may be trusted with entire confident. They
will readily discern in it the influence of the he-art
of an affectionate and cherished friend of the depart-
ed Statesman upon the hand which penned it; ap-
preciating at their full value the distinguished traits
of Mr. CLAY'S character and actions, but doing no
more than justice to the incidents of both, which
few persons could have had better opportunities than
him.t-TfTor observing '
WV1at we most admire in this discourse is the just
delitineation of the genius of Mr, CLAY, the peculiar
cast of his character, in harmony with the scenes in,
which he had lived and the duties to which he had
been called in thelntost trying emergencies through
which his country has pisied during th.: firnt half
of the present century.- -
From the particular inr-ident' et-lected by the
Orator as illustrative-of Mr. CLAY'S publiclife, many
readers even of middle age may perhaps learn some
things of which they have never heard before; and
especially in the history of that great event, the De-
claration of the War of 1812, in which Mr. CLAY ex-
erted socpowerful an agency. The part which the See-
rctary of Stale of that day (JAMESa MONROE, after-
wards President of the United States) bore in the con-
ception and execution of that war, is not so familiarly
known as Mr. CLAY's share in -it always has been.
The introduction of the name of Mr. MONROE re-
minds us of some other things, in that particular
connexion, known to but very few, but which, after
the bustle of the National Election is over, we may
take occasion to note down for the information of
our younger readers, who may not find them wholly
without interest.
Meantime, let us recommend to all who desire to
form a just estimate of the public character of the
great Whig leader, of whose politics as well as
services Mr. CRITTENDEN seems to have had an en-
tirely correct conception, to endeavor to imitate, in
the discharge of their civil duties, the devotion to
the Union, the disinterestedness, the firmness, and
the fearlessness by which Mr. CLAY'S whole life
was characterized.

It is with deep regret that we have learnt, through
a letter received in this city yesterday from Lima,
the death of WILLIAM PITT ADAMS, Esquire,
British Consul General and Charg# d'Affaires at
Lima. He died on the 1st of September. Mr.
ADAMS was several years ago, for a considerable
time, attached to Athe British Legation at Washing-
ton, and we have not known any gentleman in that
station here whose personal qualities and deport-
ment won for him a higher degree of respect or a
warmer esteem.
announce the death of the, Hon. JAMES WHITCOMB,
Senator of the United States from the State of In-
diana, and late Governor of that State. He died
on Monday afternoon, in the city of New York,
where he had been for about two weeks, for the
purpose of undergoing a surgical operation. He
was elected Governor by the Democratic party in
1843, and was re-elected to that office in 1846, and
near the close of his term was chosen a Senator to
fill the vacancy occasioned by the appointment of
Mr. Hannegan as Minister to Austria. Senat-"r
WHITCOMB was a member of the MetJiiL- Epis-
copal Church, and one of the Vice Presidents of the
American Bible Society.-N. Y. Corn. Advertiser.

It is stated in the Columbia papers that Governor
MEANS will call an extra session of the Legislature
of South Carolina, to be convened on the first Mon-
day in November, for the purpose of casting the
electoral vote of the State for Presidential electors
on the following Tuesday. In conformity to prece-
dent in similar cases, the Governor will call the new
Legislature, whose members will be elected next
ceived as far as the sixteenth number of a new
daily paper, published at Cincinnati by THOMAS
RAINEY, Editor and Proprietor, which has already
established its title as a good newspaper. From
the last number we extract the following notice of
the continued success of the highly commendable
enterprise of Gov. SLADE, in supplying some parts
of the West with qualified Female Teachers from
the older institutions of the Eastern States :
Gov. SLADE'S Teachers are still flocking to the West.
We saw our young friend, BIEsnY SLADE, Esq., son of the
Governor, at the Broadway yesterday, with six young
ladies, five of them destined to Indiana, and one to Kentucky
as teachers. He tells us that thirty-one graduated at
Hartford this fall, and have been supplied to distribute
literature in the West.
"Gov. SLADE has been the instrument of untold and
inexpressible good to this country, in thus supplying us
with highly-cultivated, refined, and christian leaders of
the young. These young ladies, wherever they go, form
the nucleus of good society and christian communities.
They are foremost in the Sabbath school and the mission-
ary society.
"We want to knew why our sister Kentucky has so
small a ratio of them. It certainly cannot be because
she has less use for them.
"Success to the Governor, who, by these sacrifices
laid on the altar of humanity and religion, has establish-
ed a fame that will live in the hearts and affections of the

people when all political glory has faded forever away."
THE LATE DUKx or WLLINGUTON.--A numerous and in-
fluential meeting of the British residents in the city of
New York was held on Monday afternoon at the office of
the British Consulate, for the purpose of adopting some
mode of testifying their respect and that of their fellow-
countrymen to the memory of their departed Hero, the
late DuKx .o WEmLINGTON,


Our Democratic feUllow-citizeans held a political
meeting on Tue-day ev aing, in front ,if th. Union
printing-office, and (in Eastern phrase) "had a good
time," as we hear. They had a numerous assembly,
excellent music, and brilliant drc-rrckaet.l; and they
adopted, with great unaninilty, a series of Rcsolu-.
titons pledging themslvct- t th6 election of G-i.

vades the Whig presiWand Whig correspondence from all

here and there a solitary exception, are now prepared to

banner, nipborin byr''lTir.D Siji-r", in *I comm1oan strug-
gle for the victory. All personal distrust of the ch. -.-n

pohical opponents., un.erupulous as mauo if' them are.
no longer venture to call in question his devotion to' the
compromises of thb Crinstitution. 'They have at last be-
come thor.:.ughly seusible oflthe ridiculous folly of making
cmpariAons on this score between ,the Whig-candidate
and his opponent; the one of whom, it is now proved, was
laboring seriously, though silently, for the Compromise,
at a time when the other was haranguing the people
against the Fugitive Slave law, which cnstituted its most
important feature."

The Herald publishes a document by which it
would appear that the State of Nicaragua has re-
solved to reject the "project of convention or re-
commendatory basis," proposed jointly by this Go-
vernment and that of Great Britain, for the adjust-
ment of the affairs of Central America. Her policy
in this particular is perhaps questionable. She
seems to have mistaken, with a jealousy common to
small Powers, a friendly proposition, believed to be
to her advantage, for foreign dictation. Until this
petty jealousy on the part of the small States of
Central America is removed, little progress-or im-
provement can be expected.- Corn. Advertiser.

From OREGON the advices are to the latter part
of August. Numerous parties of overland emi-
grants report having had but little difficulty in cross-
ing the mountains.
It appears that the Indians near the Russian set-
tlements-a fine warlike race of men-have been com-
mitting great depredations. They attacked a house
in which were seven or eight employes of the Ame-
rican and Russian Companies, by surrounding them
in every direction and firing volleys of musketry,
and finally broke in the doors and windows, when
Mr. White and his companion, the Russian officer,
after both having gallantly defended the pTemises,
made good their escape back in the mountains in
the most miraculous manner, where they expe-
rienced the most unheard-of privations and suffering.
The Indians, after plundering the premises of
every thing, set them on fire, and they were burnt
to the ground. All hands escaped with the excep-
tion of one, who was horribly mutilated. He was
found three days after with his head cut off, his
stomach cut open, and his bowels hanging out.

SOMETHING NEw.-Ingenuity is every day adding some-
thing to the comforts and conveniences of life. We were
yesterday shown some samples of an improved metallic
PaEN, which is exempted from the great defect in the steel
pen, and that is corroding. This is obviated simply by
the skilful application of Gutta Percha. Mr. B. L. C.
ScHmESSsnGER is the inventor. The pen is coated with
gutta percha, which is unaffected by the strongest acids,
and, being pointed with platina, the pen writes as smooth-
ly as a lead-pencil. They are to be had of the sole agent
is. this city, J. SHILLINGTON, Pennsylvania avenue, at
fifty cents a dozen, or four dollars a grece.
The new House Printing Telegraph is now open and
working between Baltimore and Philadelphia. The office
in Baltimore, on Monday, was thrown open for general
inspection, and hundreds called in to see the machine in
operation. Its movements are very beautiful and won-
derfully ingenious. The company is extending their line
to Washington. The poles are nearly all up, and in less
than a fortnight they expect to make a connexion with
Washington, and after that to extend the wires South as
far as New Orleans.
The Rockville Journal says that Montgomery county is
fast'filling up with industrious, intelligent, and enter-
prising farmers, and that several sales of land have re-
cently been made at prices considerably above what was
given by their late owners.
GALE AT TAMPA BAY.-There was a severe gale at Tam-
pa Bay and the surrounding country on the llth of Sep-
tember. The wharves were carried away and the boats
belonging to the custom-house department destroyed. The
sugar crops and orange groves were considerably injured.
The Grand Jury of the United States Court for the
Southern District of New York have made a presentment
to the Court on the subject of the Steamboat Disasters
which have recently occurred upon the Hudson River.
They attribute these disasters and their fatal results to
three principal causes. First, the constant violation of
the 7th section of the act of Congress of 1838, which re-
quires all vessels propelled by steam when stopped for
whatever purpose to blow off steam, so as to keep the
head of steam as near as practicable to what it is when

the boat is in motion. Second, that all the boats on the
Hudson river are very insufficiently provided with any
proper equipment either for extinguishing fire or for
saving the lives of passengers in case of disaster to the
boat; and, third, to the fact that the practice of racing
has become of late very general and constant with the
boats on that river. The jury eall the attention of the
law officers of the United States to these statements.

ANTHONY BAROLAY, ESq., the British Consul, was called

We reached here yesterday about noon, and you can
well imagine our pleasure to see once more the old chufeh
tower of El Paso. My last letter was ir.,in the Pimos

Childe Harold, C..rnelia, and Elizabeth G, Brooks had

from this correspondence, four persons, said to be of re-

The Sacramento Times and Transcript of Septem-
ber 1st says:
"The latest accounts of the overland immigration come
through a letter from Gen. Denver. On the 24th of Au-
gust the General was at the Upper Relief Station, beyond
the Sink of the Humboldt. He intended leaving for the
Truckee on the 25th, and from thence would cross over
to his headquarters, in Carson Valley. The scarcity of
grass was beginning to be felt on the immigrant road, and,
as a consequence, teams did not come through in as good
a condition as those of the advance trains. The health of
the immigrants continues good, as a general thing, al-
though a few cases of diarrhea have occurred, in some
respects resembling cholera, which proved fatal in a few
instances. A comfortable hospital has been established
on Carson river, located in a beautiful grove of trees, with
excellent spring water near by, where the sick are fur-
nished with every comfort,, and supplied with sufficient
means to reach California on their recovery.
The heaviest amount of the immigration has proba-
tly y:,:.:-.l the Sink of the Humboldt ere this, and it is
r i It'f, [, ,. to know that, thus far, the suffering on the
much-dreaded overland route has been very inconsidera-
ble. The relief furnished by California has doubtless con-
tributed greatly to produce this happy result, and the
State will ever have cause to be proud of the generous as-
sistance rendered. Of all the endeavors of the relief train,
the establishment of a water station in the midst of the
great desert, to allay the parching thirst of thousands,
has been the most acceptable to immigrants. It is said
that women and children frequently reach this station
with their tongues parched and swollen till forced out of
their mouths; and when water is furnished them, and
they learn the debt due to California, their gratitude
knows no bounds."

Gov. BROWN, of Florida, (says the New Orleans Picay-
une,) has made a curious blunder, in issuing a proclama-
tion directing the Presidential election to be held on Mon-
day, November 2, instead of Tuesday, November 2. It
will have to be corrected and a new proclamation issued,
and speedily, too, or there will be a great deal of confu-
sion in the elections.
CONDEMNED.-The United States revenue cutter Alert,
belonging to the Eastport station, after undergoing an
examination in the dry dock at Charlestown, has been
condemned as unfit for further employment in the reve-
nue service.
LIQUOR LAW DECISION.-One of the Boston Magistates
has decided that the buyer of liquor was an aider and
abettor in the crime, if crime it were, by procuring the
sale, and that's "particeps criminis," those who purchased
liquor for the sake of giving evidence against the seller,
could not be legal witnesses, and their testimony should
not be taken. The prosecuting attorney coincided in the
opinion of the Court, and the case was dismissed. This
will break up the business of informers.
EARLY SNow.-We learn from passengers who came
down on the steamer Londor nseqterduy thbt there was a
violent snow-storm on Lake Superior last Tuesday week,
which continued several hours. On Monday the ther-
mometer indicated six degrees below freezing point, at
the Saut. It will be remembered that about that time
there was a heavy frost in this vicinity.

has been committed for trial by Justice Brintnall. We
understand that the evidence was very strong against him,
and that it is quite probable all of the arrested persons
will be committed. Lamphire is the only one who has had
his examination as yet. The Court adjourned over to
Wednesday morning next at 9 o'clock, when the others
will be brought up and examined. The charges against
these men are grand larceny, burglary, and arson
in the first degree-the latter a capital offence.

this morning. as S.-on a, the fotg lifted. At Warsaw, Au-
rora, and several othEr ports at which the boat tou.hed,
very large numnbcr-s ol citizens assembled, all ,of whom
were muctl, rnthuiartic in their reception of Gan. Scott.
TowarJd afternoon the indisrposition of the General grew
more seri.,u', andi it was found at last to, be Imprudent
for him t gu on leoek anid address the people assembled
al,,nr theb chre. .;overnnr LeTcERa therefore addressed

About five miles from Cincinnati, the mnailboat Pike,
wih imanny 'nmcinnatiaos on board, came alongeile, when
Iltey were trausfere, to the Lady Franklin. Shorily af-
ter, an-.ther boat aloaed to the water'sedge with pasaeon-
gers, and] chartered ltir the occasion, ment and joined the
company. Nearer the ciLty a third boat, also crowded,
came up, turned, and struck -into line. On nearing the
city the guns commenced pealing forth salutes, and the
levee and buildings were observed -to be completely cov-
ered' With a dense mass of human beings.
The streets also appeared thronged, as viewed in per-
spective from the river. The troops were drawn-up, mu-
sic playing, colors flying, and every boat along the levee
decked out with flags, and covered with human beings.
The entire scene was one of the greatest excitement and
splendor. Every thoroughfare seemed alive with swarm-
ing thousands, and there could not have been less than
one hundred thousand people onfoot. The demonstration
was certainly the vastest and'most enthusiastic witnessed
for many a day.
When the boat neared the levee the shout of the multi-
tude rose on high with a wild and deafening roar, and the
scene was very imposing. So closely was the levee
crowded, that the entire bank appeared like a black and
rolling sea, ats the multitude swayed to and fro, in the
common anxiety to push forward toward the landing
place. The military, however, kept admirable order, and
formed a line to the carriages provided for the General
and visitors. The people had been waiting seven hours
in expectation of his arrival, being ignorant of the boat's
detention by the fog. Gen. Scott's health was such that
it was deemed imprudent for him to take part in the pro-
cession arranged) or for a formal reception, and the car-
riages drove straight to the Burnet house, greatly to the
disappointment of thousands, but amidst deafening
cheers. The General proceeded at once to his rooms, and
has received but very few calls. He intends recruiting
his health by a good night's rest, and will receive the
citizens' welcome and visits in the morning.
The demonstration here was decidedly the greatest on
the route. Thousands have been pouring in from all the
surrounding country during the day, and the city is
crowded with strangers.
Ohio appears fairly aroused, and deputations from half
awdozen different towns are now on the spot, eager to pre-
vail upon the General to visit their respective localities.
The movements of to-morrow will depend entirely upon
the health of General Scott.

southwestern counties of Pennsylvania. It ii. there fl.,Io in thbe
very heart of the great wool district and (cI '. I.--It ugitieul-
tural region perhaps in the United States. The facilities for
intercourse by land and water are unequalled. Besides the
river, (which is improved by looks and dams, and navigable
at all times,) there is the best turnpike in the county (on
which several lines of stages run every day) on the opposite
bank. There are besides excellent country roads, and the air-
line of the Hempfield ;nJlr.,id, now in progress of construc-
tion, passes through the land, and crosses the river upon it.
There are several strata of coal, equal to any in the world,
and one of them has been opened and worked for some time.
A railway, covered with iron, extends from the pit mouth to
the pier at the river. There are several houses on the place
calculated for workmen. My own dwelling is a large brick
"-uilding.. ii m.' -rn style,.completely finished, with all veniences, well of excellent water, cistern, &c. Thvre arc tw,,
large gardens, with abundance of excellent fruit.
Harlem, I think, is peculiarly suited for a woollen factory.
The considerations in fixing. the localtity of such an estabish-
ment are, I presume-1st. Motive power, its qigality, bhap.

country, to markets, .c., and particularly to Pittsburgh, which
must b. th.-- ..ru, of supply and the principal place of sale-
such i. d.li i nmy farm has; 3d. The prospect which the re-
gion around presents for furnishing the raw material, and for
consuming the products of the manufacturer, involving the
central position, as near as possible, of the factory within the
tract of country containing these advantages. As to these
particulars, I will only refer to the late Census reports.
I am willing to sell the whole estate, and w.Il g;io an ex-
tended credit for the purchase money ; or I e-li :ll it... a m -
