cb a man, I would like to know him
and should feel proud lltar lie is my coun
tryman. But factum will have it, that his
appointment was the price of his vice, as
it it were necessary for Henry Clay to
purchase an appointment—Henry Clay
who had declined a seat in the Cabinet of
Mr.Monroe—who had long presided over
the House of Representatives, with unri
valled ability—who was identified with ev
en prominent measure of the government
for many years—who had on every proper
occasion evinced Ins attachment to the in
dependence and liberty of everv people
struggling to break the fetters of tyranny
—who is second to no man in the country
>n native power of intellect—and who may
he pronounced the first living orator. Can
you believe that it was necessary for such
a man to purchase office bv a violation of
But suppose Mr. Clay had been dispo
sed to write inconsistency on iiis fore
head, and make Genera) Jackson Presi
dent, would it have been in his power to
accomplish it? Those who ascribe the
greatest power to Mr. Clay suppose him
To have had influence on no more than
five states—and General Jackson had on
ly seven states, so that he would still be
deficient one state—and where could lie
nnd tins one? It is admitted l y those
most conversant with the subject that the
Crawford States would all give their se
cond vote for Mr. Adams, and that if
there had been a second ballot, Mr. A-
ams would have h id seventeen votes in
place of thirteen.
It was however desirable that the con
test should be ended at once, and theie-
h.re Mr. Clay merits the thanks of the
country for contributing to the election of
one of the most eminent statesmen of mo-
ein limes. The election terminated
most happily for the country, and in strict
accordance with the letter and spirit of
The Constitution. If it
was wrong to e-
lect Mr. Adams who had 84 votes, what
shall we say of the Crawford states that
voted for their candidate who had not half
the number ? Much has been said about
99 votes of Gen. Jackson—yet it is
notorious that the 15 votes of North Car
olina would have been given to Mr. Craw
ford, had not the friends of Mr. Adams u-
Ttted with the friends of Uio General to
carry a Jackson ticket. Now deduct these j
15 votes from 99, and what is there to boast j
of? Why should there be daily efforts to ;
persuade the people they have been do- j
frauded, when it has been shewn again i
and again that ntoie of the people voted for j
.Mr. Adams than for General Jackson?!
And when every man conversant with I
the subject knows that the circumstance;
of a candidate having a plurality of votes j
is no evidence that he is the choice of a j
majority of the people. This ran be de- j
j monstated to the entire satisfaction of ev- \
I erv intelligent mind. But if any man doubt
• the right of Congress to exercise their
; judgment and make a choice, whether thai
! choice be the first, second, or third on
! die list, let him read the speech of Louis
| Me Lane, of Delaware.
But, my countrymen, there is also op-
i position to the state Executive—What is
the objection here? It is not pretended
j that Governor Kent was not fairly elect-
j ed—nor that our Townsman William
Stei art was not fairly elected. Whv
j then should they be overthrown ? Can it
j be pretended that the affairs of the state
have not been well managed ? Can it be
pretended that offices have not been lib
erally distributed without regard to party
distinctions? Has there not been a recent
instance of liberality in the appointment
of a decided Federalist and a decided
Jacksonian to one of the most distinguish
ed offices in the State ? I shall pursue this
Incredible Story relating to the Poison
of the llattlc Snake.—To give you an
idea of the long time this poison retains
its property I shall relate a curious, hut
well authenticated, series of facts, which
took place in a central district of the state
of Pennsylvania some twelve or fifteen
years ago. A farmer was so slightly bit
through the boot bv a rattlesnake, as he
was walking to view his ripening cornfields
that the pain felt was thought by him to have
been from the scratch of a thorn not hav
ing seen or heard the reptile. Upon his
return home, he felt, on a sudden, vio-
i lenllysick at stomach, vomitted with great
j pain and died in a few hours. Twelve
months after this, the eldest son, who had
taken his father’s boots, put them on, and
went to church at some distance. On his
going to bed that night, whilst drawing off
bis boots he felt slightly scratched on the
leg, but merely mentioned it to his wife,
and rubbed the place with his hand. .In
a few hours however he was awakened bv
violent pains, complained of a general
giddiness, fainted frequently, and expired
before any succour could be applied with
success ; the cause of the illness, also be
ing quite a mystery. In course of time
bis effects were sold, and a second brother
through filial affection, purchased the
boots, and ,if I remember rightly put them
on about two years after. As Iip dtew them
off, he felt a scratch, and cutnulained of it
when the widowed sister, being present,
recollected that the same pain had been
felt by her husband on the like occasion ;
the youth suffered and died in the very
same wav that his father and brother did
before him. These repeated and singular
deaths being rumored in the country,, a
medical gentleman called upon the friends
of the deceased, to inquire into the parti
culars, and at once pronounced their
<leatlis to have been occasioned by venom.
The boots, that hadbeen the cause of com
plaint, were bro’t to him when he cut one
of them open with care and discovered
the extreme point of the fang of a rattle
snake issuing from the leather, &, assured
the people that this had done all the mis
chief. To prove this satisfactorily lie
scratched with it the nose of a dog, and he
died in a few hours, from the poisonous
effect it was still able to convey. In
confirmation of these fac*s. I have been
told by native Americans, that arrows,
dipt in rattle-snake venom would carry
death for ages after.

in great distress, with a child in his arms
came into a public house in the Bridge-

with great earnestness. A young man in
the house at the time, suspecting that he
was an impostor, took hold of the child
when immediately the head came off, and
discovered it to be made of plaster of paris.
After shaking the old man a little an old
red wig fell off and discovered him to be
a young man about thirty. He begged
very hard to get off without asking damages
