It needs not guilt to break a huslamd's heart; the ab sence of content, the mutterings of spleen, the untidy dreaa and cheerless home, the forbidding scowl and de serted hearth ; these and other nameless neglects, with out a crime among them, have harrowed to the quick live lieart of many a mail, and planted there, beyond the reach ol cure, the genu ol dark despair.

BUTTS COUNTY. May Bth, 1847 CiMTLWM— As the Iso* method of preventing the lestruetion of |iench trees by borers is a matter of public interest, in dillerent sections ol the country, I will give my plan ol preventing their ravagesin young trees, and •spelling them from old ones. 1 saarriuiued several years ago, that sulphur is more ifli-nsivs u> most kinds of insects than any other sub- I taner with which I wueacquainted. When applied to fait tree*, it lasts longer ami is more permanent in its operation than anything 1 have tried. Pearh tieos are 1 iten attacked by tne worm in the nursery, which may easily he known by a blackish appearance, with exuded gum on il.e stem nest the ground and on the roots When tbs young trees are taken from the nursery, for i !_■*l diodower part of their stems with a mixture ol any com non oil or grease and the flour of sulphur, well incorpo rated by stirring. Hpriukle a table spoonful ol clear enl nur m the bottom of the holes, and then plant the trees in the usual way . In order to expel the hnrer from old trees, I take gitn iat, or brace and bit. and bore three or fmn small holes in eorh tree near the ground, and fill tliem with lira.’ of sulphur, with the aid of a quill.* I also remove th emlli from about the snots of the trees, ns tar ns tie ore attacked by the worms, then apply the mixture e oil and sulphur as directed for young trees, replace tie earth, tnd the proc> •* is complete.

To those V\ bigs who may wish to patronize u Democratic oi gun in Cential Georgia, w- would say, ny all means give your invois to the Telegraph os it is conducted on ta.r, lu noralile and dignified principles. The prosperity of Macon. In nothing is the prospcnty oi Macon more apparent than in the tact that it is almost impossible to tind, with in its nuiits a coinloitable dwelling-house to rent, which is not saughi alter by scores ol applicants. The he althy state oi trade, nnd the laigily increased business ol the ] t season, have hither many citizens and no 1 itle capital from abroad. Recent purchacesof real es t te have been made by heavy capitalists, whose influ ence will doubtless, be felt in ibe community. Within the last three mouths a block ol commodious stores have been erected in Cherry street, and other evidences oi prosperity are not w anting. The city has entirely re covered from past embarrassments, and our merchants are not only solvent, but have abundant means to extend iheir business relations. Our planting friends eveiy where are reapectfaiiy recommended to examine the odvertiHiLgcclumns of the city papers, and when they visit Macon to patronize those who have energy enough to seek their trade, and who are ready and willing to let the public lua w whin goods they have lor sale. While’s Statistics of Georgia* We t'ke pleasure in calling attention to the Prospec tus of White’s Statistics of Georgia, in out advertising columns. The people of die Suite have long needed a w ork of the kind, and we are informed that Mr. White has been very industrious nnd eminently successful in his efforts to procure materials. He is now canvassing the State for subscribers and informs us that be has procured a list of six hundred in the city of Savannah alone. He proposes to call upon the citizens of Macon in a lew days, and we trust may receive that encourage ment w hicli he deserves. Itnilroad Competition.

This gallant and meritorious officer lias declined a public dinner, tendered to him and his command by a committee in behalf of the citizens of Savannah. He says: “ The lateness of the season, connected with the fact that the greater proportion of tiiose corps are entirely disorganized, rendering it highly improbable that many of my fellow-soldiers could attend, induces me most re spectfully to decline the invitation, so fur ns it concerns myself” __ Another Fall* We understand that the President has authorized C’ap tsinsCalhoun &.

During tho past w.;*?k our goodly city was densely crowded With strangers, attracted hither by the Kxami nntiou and Commenceuient Exercises at the Wesleyan > peirne lc College. To say that they we re delighted vis itors would be conveying but a meagre idea of the uni versal expression of gratification which \\c be nl. !Ma •iy of those present, w'ere persons of acknowledged cul tivation, of refined taste and matuied judgment; and yet we heard but one opinion in regard to the faithful iicKH nnd ability of the professors, or the deportment an<l proficiency of the students. ‘ 1 lie Examination winch was thorough and protract ed, proved beyond all question, that th** fleeting hours bad been industriously employed, nnd that the acquire- ‘ rnents of the young ladies, were entirely equal to the moat sanguine expectations of the friends of the Institution. Our own engagements having prevented a constant atom lance nt the CtmjW tlte tlmt 1 dn> * test ol scholarship, we only give utterance to the universally expressed opinion of those who were present’ when we eny that the t.-st whs severe, and that the ac quirements of the young ladies were quite equal to its most scrupulous exactions. The institution, in oar opin- , ion, is especially blessed with a faculty who seem to care mote fur substantial acquirements than for the mere show anil tinsel of education. It has been said, we know, thut tin y pay too little attention to the courtesies and refinements which so much sdorn the female char acter, und too much to mere collegiate education.— This maybe, and possibly is to some extent, correct There were douhtlen defects in both the scholarship and the etiquctticalities,” of some of the graduating class. Strange if such were not the case. These differ ences in culture and refinement result front differences in temperament, constitution and intellect. As well might we expect that a block of granite should take the polish of the best Italian marble ns that all minds should be susceptible of the same high degree of refinement.— W e venture to say, that the discrepancy in this particu lar, was not greater than is perceptible in the best grad uating classes of our best Institutions—such ns Yule, Harvard, Princeton or franklin; while the general at taintnenfe *>f tk were highly creditable both to the Professors and Students. In several instances the schol arship was remarkable, and the young ladies richly de served the high distinction which was uwarded to them, both for acholaiship and deportment. Upon the whole we question whether any Institution in the South pre sents greater facilities for those who may desire a sub- 1 stuntial education for their daughters, than does the • Wesleyan Female College, under its present manage- * ment. Commencement Day, We regret exceedingly that the excessive heat of the day nnd the crowded state of the hull prevented us from hearing the exercises of the young Ladies ot the gradu ting class on r l hursday last. Either the Faculty or Trustees were careless of their duties, and the House i w as crowded with noisy half fledged boysaud “children of a larger growth” to the exclusion of many who desi red to hear and who would have been glad to appreci ate the performances. The opinion seemed to be uni versal that these exercises ought to take place in some Hall or Church large enough to accommodate all who may desire to hear nnd w here reasonable order might have been preserved. The confusion wu to groat, that it was in 1 possible for 1 th*c outride to hear, while an hour spent inside the 1 Chopel was equal to the best imaginable Turkish vapor ‘ both. Under such circumstances it is not to fe expect- 1 ed that we should give a very accurate idea of the char- ‘ acter of the exetcises. r I lie young Lndies seemed anx ious to be heard, nnd those* portions of their essays which < we could bear were tastefully aru carefully written; but many of the compositions were entirely lost, ex- cept to the se immediately rr und the render?. A young . ami talented friend who was present during the whole ) of the day has kindly favored us with a graceful sketch of the proceedings accompanied by some most ‘mportant suggestions in regard to the lutur pmsperity of the Institution, which we regret to say was receiv ed at so late an hour, that we were compelled to omit it or lose several of our most important mails.

The Proposition for Peace* A correspondence between Mr. Buchanan and the Mexican Minister of Foreign Affairs, is copied by the New Orleans Delta of the 13th instant, from the “ Sun of Annahuae,” a paper published in Vera Crus The American Secretary of State repents the declaration | that our government are anxious for an early termina tion of the pending war. He combats the idea insisted | upon by Mexico, that the American forces must be Iw ithdrawn, as a preliminary condition,and very proper ty informs them that such can never he the caae He holds that the above condition, insisted upon by Mexico, is not in accordance with the usages of notions, nnd insists that the United States, ns the invading pow er, woald, by seceding to it, lose all she has gained, I in case the negotiation should fail. Mr. Buchanan dis- j metly states, that while the. President will not renew his proposition to open negotiations, unless satisfied that bis terms will hi- accepted ; still, ti nt til* wnr may not Ibe minfcrsaarily prolonged, he hns concluded to send 1 ’ Mr Taw to the Head-quarters of the Army of Occu pation, clothed with full {Movers to conclude a definite treaty of pedes with the United Mexican Staten.

It looks ns if we had mistaken our foe, and had finally resolved to sue for u pence, which we commenced to . conquer. Sympathy “ ;| d Sawdust. The excessive sympathy of the Federal Union for Col Daws,,,v, has ■ • • ■ to'.lt in both the Whig and Democratic cirel-s; more especially as it came from a quarter whence compliments of a very different character have whilom emulated. The arti cle to of a very equivocal character, and Ukc the Irish mans present, it is somewhat difficult to tell whether it is intended for sympathy or sawdust. It reminds us of a story which we recently noticed in the New York Sunday Mercury: “ A blunt, old fashioned Irishman, accompanied by his family, having arrived fresh from the “ Green Isle,” settled in the city of Brooklyn, hard by n good Presby terian Deacon, who was very sanctimonious in church, hut very slippery and unscrupulous in politics. The Deacon wishing to get Patrick s vote nnd influence at the approaching election, sent him a present of a barrel of corn meal, accompanied by n note expressing his sympathy for the starving Irish, and spiced with reflec tions upon the British Government for its unjust nnd harsh treatment of thnt people. Pat opened the barrel, and pawed over the contents with wonder and astonish ment. Not having seen any such “ provender” as thnt ■ before, he knew not what to make of it for the soul of J him. After blowing n about, drozzling it between his fingers, and rubbing it in hvs bands tor a long time, he came to the conclusion that a “ dirthy thrick” had been played upon him ; so he sat down and penned the fol lowing laconic and touching reply : I rooklyn, June 9th. To Mr. , Sir: With gratitude I accept your sympathy, but d—u your aawduA! Truly, your humid* sorv’t, PATRICK DOLAN.” | Should our good friend, Col Dawson, conclude to * make a formal tender of thanks to the editor of the Union, we have no doubt he will take as his epistolary model, the sententious production us Patrick Dolan. He I may thank the Deacon for his sympathy, but bid him digest his own “ sawdust,” or turn it over in mercy to bis particular friend, the disconsolate “ Coon Killer.” Good Testimony* The National Intelligencer, n* all our readers are aware, is extremely cautious how it endorses the char acter of any gentleman, either for intellect or morals. When it does speak, therefore, ns testimony, like thnt of a man of high toned honor & ( ('needed conscientious ness, must have weight upon th* public mind. We con sequently take pleasure in copying the following para graph from that paper, accompanied by an extract from | the Journal Messenger. An acquaintance of years | with Gen. Clinch, lias enabled us* to appreciate both his , * character and his int* Heel, and we feel assured that our | ’ judgment will be sustained, not only by the Intelligen- i 1 cer, but by the people of Georgia. From the National Intelligencer. “ We have seldom seen any commendation of a pub , lie man which we could more cordially endorse, than what is said in the annexed paragraph in regard to Gen. Duncan L Clinch, of Georgia. Wc have known * this true-heaitcd citizen, man and boy, for, we will not say how many years, and we have never known a kind | er, braver, or more honorable gentleman. His intellect ual qualities are correctly described by the Journal, and his private life is ns virtuous ns his public character is un- j blemished. Being al le, by a long and intimate ac- ] quaintance with him, to bear this conscientious testi- | monv to the personal and public merits of General | Clinch, and seeing him now before his fellow-citizens j as a candidate for a high though unsought office, we should be doing injustice to ourselves as well as to him, were we to copy the following tribute to his worth, from a respectable Georgia journal, without adding this brie* expression of our own feelings ” From the Journal ft; Messenger “ General Clinch. —Asa man, as a soldier, and ns a statesman, the people of Georgia have reason to be proud of Gen. Clinch, and would only honor tliem aelves by proclaiming him their Chief Magistrate. As a man, he is kind, benevolent, and courteous, but firm ; ns a soldier, brave and skilful. L.ke Washington and Tayi.or. he knows when to command, and when to hear the complaints oi his men. i hough u General j true and stem when necessity requires it, he has never i been known to lose sight of the charity, the courtesy,’ and kindness ol the true gentleman, even amid the tri als of the camp or the strife of the battle. Asa states man, he is modest and unobtrusive, but well informed. He is no orator, and exhibits his no*xl sense by never attempting to obtrude himself as such upon the people. His information upon political subjects is varied and minute. Few among even profess* <i politicians are bet ter informed upon State or national topics than he is, or write with greater ease, point, or perspicuity In the management of money matters he is not a whit inferior to the present able incumbent of ihe Executive chair.” A Fair Kehtikc. The Muscogee Democrat, alluding to the probable requisition übout to be made on Georgia for a battalion of mounted men, very pointedly says: “ While on this subject, we would respectfully inquire why cannot the battalion of Infantry lx* made up from the middle and eastern counties? The late Democrat ic Convention “resolved” in favor ot the war, and why pot resolve to till up the battalion, forthwith, and send it on its way to the “ aid and comfort”of Gens Scott and Taylor 1 We don’t understand the reason of the cul pable apathy on this subject among the friends of the Administration, but believing that it is incurable, we invoke the aid of the “ Mexican Whigs'’ to come to the rescue lor the honor of the good old Common wealth !” As the Whigs furnished a decided majority of the regiment under Col. Jackson, we think it is but fair that Mr. Polk should now call upon the members of the late Democratic convention for “ aid and comfort.” It is hardly fair that the Mexican Whigs should do all the fighting. Democratic Economy* The New York Journal •/ Commerce says:— “The United States Loan off 18,000,000 was taken 10th April, 1847, at about l percent, premium. This premium has since advanced, according to the daily re ports in the papers, to 71 per e nt . so that, at this rate, the patriotic Exchange Brokers will gain $1.260,000 by tins o|oration! If the United otatea had pomemed as much sagacity as those financiers, by only offering $6,000,000 at one tune, it might have saved 7 per cent, on $12.000 000, to wit: $840,000. However, it was gratifying to know that the profit was made by such eminent philanthropists!” The Journal of Commerce did more than any other paper to place the administration in power and there fore has a right to complain, that Mr. polk should per mit Messrs. Corcoran Sl Riggs, the especial friends of Mr Walker to pocket a million or two of the public money. After a while when the loans coutraced hy Mr Polk are to be paid, the Democracy as in 1811, will swear that it was a burthen inflicted by the Whigt!

Judge Charlton’s Oration The address of the lion. Robert M. Charlton to the audience and to the graduating class at the Wesley an Female College, on Thursday last, was, in our opin ion, a model performance The speaker showed his good taste by avoiding an error winch is very commonly committed on such occasions. The oration was not elaborate, metaphysical or argumentative, hut brief, practical and appropriate. The style was decidedly or nate, and the moral tone of the production iti exquisite taste. It is not our purpose to give an analysis of the j paper. It treated of the subject of Education in gener | nl ami particularly, of the increased influence and charm I 1 which it imparts to the female. The power of woman j to control and subdue the wildest and fiercest passions of men. was happily illustrated by the following beauti- 1 I lul original Ballad, drawn ft out an incident in the French Revolution, recited in Allison’s History of Eu rope : Tin* Draught of Hlood. At mid-hour of a gloomy night, In France’s fair domain, The eye beheld a wilder sight It e’er may see again : A vision of that troubled time, When men, fierce demons were, And each heart was the throne of crime. Or horrible despair. Ton prison’s walls, a savage crowd, With a wild outcry came, And threats of vengeance, deep and loud, Their voices did proclaim, Againt the noble of that land—- By cruelty placed there,— The remnent of the fated band Os France’s brave and fair. And one by one, each hapless heart Was dragg’d from dungeon cell, And quickly pierced by sword and dart, Mid shout and frantic yell; And ns streamed forth the purple flood, As fast as Autumn’s rain, They quaff’d deep draughts of reeking blood From every mangled vein. And in his turn, an aged man Was led the portal thro’— When from the crowd a maiden ran, Anl to his bosom flew*: “ Strike ! if you will,” she wildly cried— “ Wieak. if you must, your ire ; Your swords must drink my own heart’s tide, Ere they shall touch my sire!” i Those fierce men paused : that noble maid Had won their savage heart; But yet they stay’d, with lifted blade, Unwilling to depart. Anil while they thus uncertain stood, One seized a cup of gore. Filled to the brim with noble blood, Which to the maid he bore: “ Drink !” he exclaimed—“ this purple stream Hath flow’d from pamper’d vein— A fitting goblet, it would seem, For one so fair to drain. Drink ! and the deed thy sire shall save, Ills footsteps shall go free ; But pause not, or a bloody grave Shall hold both him and thee !” The maiden took the proffer’d cup, That she dare not deny, While thousand torch-lights lifted up, Flash’d full upon her eye: Oh, twas a wild and thrilling scene, To see that bright one stand, Like guaidian angel plac’d between Her father and that band ! And loudly rang a demon cry, When she the bowl had ta’en, And with a sad, averted eye, To latest drop did dram ; Down tell each red, uplifted blade, That draught hath quench’d their ire: All honor to the peerless maid, That saved her aged sire ! A story like this needed no application All seemed to recognize the deduction, that it such were the influence ot sex in the w ild and bloody drama of the French Rev olution, that influence could be rendered infinitely more potent for good when chastened and refined by Christian Education. Without following the distinguished speaker through the whole of this part ot his oration, or copying hisap propiate remarks addressed to the sterner portion of his auditory, we must conclude by submitting the following extract, which, lor beauty ot conception, gracefulness of diction, and correctness of sentiment, may be regarded as a fair specimen of the whole performance. “And you, my gentle hearers! you, who have been sent by an unerring wisdom, to be at once the ruler and the governed—whose duty it is to obey and to yield, and ! whose privilege it is to command and to sway, even by obeying, and in yielding, keep well the charge committed to you. Oh, mother! tram well the infant heart that Providence hath placed w ithin your care. Stamp upon it, whilst the soil is yet soft, the moral image of its Cre ator ; whisper to it the kind lessons of humanity and seif-sacrifice ; tell it of the temptations of the world ; and let your own life be the guide to its steps, the lantern to its path to lead it unto Heaven ! Oil, sister ! love well the playmate, the brother of your youth ! One form hath given you life, one bosom hath nourished you ; let one heart and one affection be yours forever ! so shall you be beautiful in life ; so shall not death divide you ! And oh Wile! w hat shall I say to you, you who can ex ercise so potent un influence upon the manly form that hath promised to be thine forever, in sickness and in health, in riches and in poverty, in glory and in shame Tia thus too, that your own oath has been registered.— Oh, be mindful of the solemn pledge. Be not too hasty to reprove or to condemn. “ Be to his faults, a little blind, Be to his virtues, ever kind !” Remember the fierce strife which his spirit must en dure to win sustenance for you and for your loved ones. Remember the fretting of the mind, the weariness of t!ie body, which tie primeval curse has emailed upon him! and remember how that curse came B* it thine to caltn life's troubled waves ; be it thine, by thy gentle 1 words, thy cheering smile to make the drooping heart rejoKMi i iul •** the dove, wlien it found !o spot to rest upon, came back with joy and speed to the Ark, where it knew it would have a kind welcome, and a generous protection ; when thy companion has found in this troublous, stormy life, no spot upon which his saddened heart, his weary form ran stay, and flies back to thee, | the ark of his joy and of hm hope, drive not the bird with the broken wing from thy bosom by coldness or by reproach, but be in thy turn,the protector and sustainer of him, that lias protected and sustained thee ; and so shall he take new comfort and new strength to buckle | on his armour again for life's conflicts, secure in the re flection, thut tho’ the whole earth forsake him, one heart ’ dings to his with undying affection ; one form watches over him with unceasing sympathy ; one life is linked j with Ins life, one joy with liim joy, one sorrow with his j sorrow ; and that if borne down in the fierce encounter he shall sleep the sleep ol death, one memory shall cherish his memory, one soul shull watch his spirit’s flight, and long for the time, when in a brighter land, anti a happier home, the hearts that had Ix-en linked together m tune will be (round together in eternity!” COMMUNICATED.

HENRY WOOTTEN, Chairman. J m’ kla, | Secretaries. CORRESPONDENCE OF THE JOURNAL AND MESSENGER. NEW YORK, July 14, 1847. Gentlemen :—ln the absence of local topics of inter est and during the drag of business consequent upon the hot weather, public attention here is attracted to the proceedings of the Internal improvement Conven tion at Chicago, of which you will find extended re ports in our papers. The friends of the cause here are exceedingly giatified at the li ely interest which these proceedings are awakening all over the country. The delegates in attendance exceed in number ten thousand, and among them are some of the best minds in the na tion. Your Hon. Thomas Butler King, on the sec ond day of the Convention make a whole souled speech which was received with distinguished favor. What ever may have been the design of the originators of this great gathering, it is destined to exert an important in fluence upon the next Presidential election, unless the public feeling in favor of Gen. Taylor should rise to a height sufficient to sweep him in irrespective of the ques tions mooted concerning Internal Improvement. Avery serious and heavy charge of false pretences has just been brought against a Mr. John H. Klengden, a commission merchant down town, who, it is alleged obtained upwards of $14,000 of one banker, and $7,000 of another, on false and tiauduleiit pretences. The large sums obtained, and the standing of the parties, cause the affair to make some noise. The accused has given hail, and is at large. Since the last steamer the speculations in bread stufis have been brought to a stand still. Buyers have every thing their own way. The quantity arriving from the interior is still very considerable ; yesterday we receiv ed by way of the Hudson river 20,07*2 bbls. flour, 2,690 bb!s. com meal, &c. &c. Considerable shipmentsaie j making by large receivers here, who prefer to trust the foreign market rather than accept the low rates current here. This causes an increased activity in the freights The prices ol Genneseee flour may be put down at $6 a $6 06. The Cotton market continues dull and the small sales noted submitted to a decline of i cent. A report Irani the Medical Society of New York to the Mayor, states that from the 2d January up to th* end ot June, the deaths irom ship lever in all the hospit als as well as at large in the city, were 470. Consider ing that about 80,000 emigrants have arrivedin the same I time, file mortality is c *>tain 1 y very moderate. Ihe ri bas been much unnecessary alarm on tile subject. This morning the Chmeae Junk came up from the] quarantine, dressed out in the flags of her nation and ! saluting file lorts and city. She is ail odd looking craft, 150 feet long and of good proportions, built of leak wood and stowed with all sorts ot curious Chinese productions. She will probably prove a handsome speculation for fier owner. All Gotham is on tiptoe to see her. She will be our aquatic museum, and will rival Bamum’s on terra Jirma in taking the quarters. Forty Chinese and twenty Englishmen compose her crew. As soon as the hot weather is over, I expect we shall begin to stir on the Presidential question, and the moss es will begin to shout the name of Talor. The w eather is glorious. Thermometer from 82 to 90f hut fine rams every lew days keep the atmosphere elastic and fresh. Truly yotu*, PYM. CORRESPONDENCE OF THE JOURNAL AND MESSENGER. ATLANTA, July 19, 1847. Messrs. Editors: I have returned this far on my i w-uy from a trip through the counties of North-western | Georgia, and no where do 1 find the People more pleas- j cd with the nomination of Gen. Clinch, than m those i counties. It is hailed every where with the utmost en- j tliumasin, and the old Hero will receive a warm and , heuity support from the yeomanry of this part of the State. True, the little bar-room politicians, and stump ing lawyers, the “small fry” babblers of the Democra cy, say that he is no orator, that he can’t spenk. But the people do not care lor ail that; they are tired of men who woik their way into power, without any oth er qualification than that of being able to speak, to fa vor ami flatter. They want a man of good hurd sense, possessing immnss talents and industry, uud honesty to discharge his duties. Such a man they believe Gen. Clinch to be; and as such, they will vote for him lor Governor. Independent of his military renown and undoubted pntnotoyn, the people are in favor of our candidate be cause lie is a planter Being identified with the great mass ol our people in the cultivation of the soil, they feel sate in unsung the reins of government in his hands He knows how* to sympathize with them, and to legis late tor them. That Mr. Towns can tell a better talc than the old General, is altogether probable ; but in n sound and practical judgment—plain, strnigbt forward honesty, nnd habits of industry anJ economy, he is the ! i old Hero's interior—and “nothing else.” In conclusion, let messy to the Whigs of Middle und ( j Southern Georgia, that their brethren of the mountains, are active in preparing for the struggle With hk • nc- , tivity and harmony throughout our ranks, and such a Hero ns old “ Withlaeoochee” for our leader, we will give the Democracy such a defeat as thru of ih* Mexi- , cans at Cerro Gordo ; mid when the strife in over, noth ing will be left of lh r gallant orator but hit cork leg. , Here tlien is for “a long pull, a strong jml I, and n pull | altogether.

Mr. Towns in his remarks on the Mexican m, was happy— or rather, nnd candidly speaking, more -happy is drift seemed to he to attach to Gene* Taylor he blame of bringing on the war, by advising Mr Polk to order the march of onr army to the R, Grande, and yet to give to Mr Polk the honor „f , the victories gained by Gen Taylor after the war Ui commenced. And in this he certainly betrayed am™ criminal ignorance of the facts in the ease, or a wilt„| desire ,o misrepresent them. I prefer to attribute to htm ignorance of the facts- than a desire to mi „Z resent This though requires the exercise of pest charity towards him-for he ought to have known th,, Gen. Taylor never recommended ,he marehine of troops tothe Rio Grande, except npon the condition that Mr. Polk intended that river to be the ‘‘uhimatnm” of our boundary line with Mexico; nnd Mr Poikhitn self deciding it to he the line, ordered the march ofo,„ troops there, which caused the war To that river though, if Mr Renton & Mr. Ohns. J IngereoMnre tabe believed, our boundary line never did extend-but un fortunately for the country, Mr Polk nor his friends to place any confidence in the veracity of those met! When they speak the truth It is only when they utter falsehood, that they con gain credit with Mr Folk anil his friends. Col. Towns said the Whigs had no principles and that they were against the government, and opposed to the war, although he knows thntsotne. and not a little, ot the best blood that has moistened Mexican soil, has been the blood of Whigs—and some of them too. sons ot some of the most dist nguished Whigs in the Union, who thought the war could nnd ought to have been avoided, nnd our rights and our honor fully maintained. It any ot the Polks have bled in that war—that ,o lb-un, jut, necessary, and honorable war, I never have heard of it. Who are the best patriots, they who will fight lor their country in an unnecessary war, or they who refuse to fight for their country in a war deemed by them necessary, to preserve the honor and secure the rights of their country ? All this is unseneroup. unkind, nn.l nn> thing but magnanimous on the part of Col. Towns, and certainly a small business—a very small business for a man who aspires to be Governor of this State. But Col. Towns has not to-day done the cause of Democracy any good, nor the cause of the Whigs ary harm. Hisreal position among the people has mistaken by himself and his friends. The people have looked upon him where he is known ns a lawyer of some plausibility—creating some amusement in the courts when he attends them—of but very little legal capacity, ] i!'k*pdof decided common ability, & they still look up ;°n him in the same light; and lom sure they do not es- I teem him as possessing those rare qualifications and ] that commanding character and dignity of deportment that would, if he were elected Governor, either secure i tarings or honor to the State. They like to see him at the Courts—love to hear him talk, arid se-* him wink his eyes, and turn his nose to one side, and are willing that he should “slap them on the shoulders”—hut they luive not, I imagine, heretofore, nor do they now th vi lie is the man for Governor—that is another and quite a different thing. HiasUunp speaking will certainly make the matter no better for him. The truth is, he is by no means a happy or fortunate stump speaker ; there is no point, “your know” in his arguments,—he will not —he cannot for want of capacity, come up to the pub lic expectation for a candidate for Governor—the peo ple will expect more from him than he can do. Wrn. H. Crawford, Stephens, Toombs nnd many others, could make him appear in a very unfavorable [mint of view on the stump. I am willing he should makes speech in every county in the .Suite ; 1 hope he will do so without a reply from any one. We have nothing to fear from it. Gen. Clinch in staying at home and at tending to his farm, leaving the matter to the unbiassed nnd uninvited judgment of the people, will do more for himself than to engage in the liu siuess of stump speaking,—the propriety of which is at i least questionable incaiididatcs for Governor—or eiae I why did not Troup nnd Claik, and Talbott, For syth nnd his opponent, Joel Crawford and Gilmer Lumpkin.

And moreover, men will soon Is* selected for that high office, with ref erence only to their s|s-aking powers, nnd not in refer ence to their mental powers, moral worth, or business capacity.
