Yet the imposition was perseveringly palmeil upon
the people, that the Legislature could do it if they
pleased, and if it were not done, it would be because
the majority was democratic.
This snake game was played in forty one, in forty
two, but the Whig player neglected to tell the peo
pie, that they, (the Whigs) had cleaned out the state'
‘reastuy, during the session of fe rty, and left their
successors an empty purse to hold—the reproaches
then heaped on the majorities of the two last sessions
are about as honest and reasonable, as it would be
for those who had bound a man hand and foot, to
abuse him for not while in that condition, running
races, or dancing hornpipes.
There was one point in wlrich the democrats did
not follow their whig predecessors—when the people

We have received the first number of the ‘Vedette,’
anew paper, published weekly in Savannah, by Mr.
E. J. Purse,under the direction of the executive Com
mittee, of the Young Men’s Democratic Association
of Chatham County. We extend the right hand of
fellowship to our friends, the “ Young Deinocracie”
of Chatham, and congratulate them and the party
generally, in the eastern, middle, and seaboard coun
ties, upon the appearance of this new sentinel in our
ranks. The Vedette is beautifully printed, its edito
rials are well written, and it promises to he an able
and worthy auxiliary with the Democratic press of
Georgia, in the spread of sound republican principles.
We wish it success.
We have within a day or two, been favored with
the examination of two specimens of the graphic art,
surpassing in skill, taste and beauty of execution, any
thing of the kind we had before witnessed.
The first contains the title of a series of maps, rep
resenting with scientific accuracy, the counties tra
versed by the Central Rail Road, also the course of
the road through those counties with the most srtis
faetory minuteness. The '2d is a map on a scale of
extraordinary magnitude, being dilineateil on the
largest sized elephant paper. The artist, Mr. O'Con
ner, is not a mere draftsman, but a regularly trained
practical engineer, possessing at tire same time, exten
sive scientific acquirements. Those acquainted with
Mm s|H>ak of him as a gentleman of unusual modesty
and absence of pretension in bis de|Kirtment.

Mr. Jackson Barnes, Mulberry si., who, we are sure
will take pleasure in gratifying those who call, with
a sight of them.
The New York Journal of Commerce, (Whig,)
after publishing Mr. Calhoun’s letter to the Editors
of the National Intelligencer, makes the following
just and liberal remarks :
Always manly in foeling and powerful
in intellect, once the idol of the nation,
beyond any other man since the days of
Washington—Mr.Calhonn has been trea
ted, for some years past, by the [tresses of
the North, with marked neglect, and
worse than that, marked misrepresenta
tion. He might have been President af
ter Gen. Jackson if he would have stoop
ed to little things, and those not so little
or so mean as politicians are acoustomed
to resort to.
His virtues have always drawn out the
enthusiastic admiration and love of his
friends. “Tell me,” said a leading whig
of this city, some months ago in conver
sation with Mr. Senator Preston, “tell me
sir, what is the secret of Mr. Calhoun’s
wonderful popularity at the South ?” “It
is the purity of his character,” replied
Mr. Preston; “no man ever becomes ac
quainted with him who does not love
him.” This was generous praise from a
generous opponent. Mr. C.’s noble stand
last year in favor of law and order in
Rhode Island, when some other interests
in the democratic party were meanly and
wickedly urging on the dogs of civil war,
has done something to soften the preju
dices against him which the tariff con
troversy had engendered. He is again
brought forward as a candidate for the
presidency. His consistent, moral and
religious character, his great talents as a
statesman, and his life of manly patrio
tism, will ensure him a host of ardent
friends, so long as there are men i:i the
republic to admire these qualities. The
letter which we print to-day, is a speci
men of the man. He does not disguise
that his opinion have somewhat changed
since his entrance on public life. Whose
opinions have not changed in thrity
years ? Most of onr prominent states
men have boxed round the Compass in
that time. Not one of them has changed
less than Mr. Calhoun.
We agree with the Journal of Commerce. Mr.
Calhoun his been treated by a portion of the pr ss
at the North "with neglect, and worse than that,
with marked representation.” But the North is not
the only section of the country in wlrich that great
than has heen treated unfairly by the public press.—
from a portion of the Whig press, we have not ex.
pf-cted anything manly or liberal towards Mr. Cal
houn—but we did expect for that gentlcmsn fair
rfoatment at the hands of every- liberal and generous
oppenent, however widely gentlemen may differ in !
opinion alrout men or measures. We envy not the
feeling* of that man, who seeks to blacken the fame
of such men as Mr. Calhoun —be they Whig or De
nocrat, we care not—it is enough for us to know
that they arc Americans; pariots, who have illustra
ted our glorious free institutions, and whose fame will
n all after times have no limits but the boundaries of
iheral principles,and enlightened civilization through
iut the old world. We care not to which great po
litical division they belong at the present day—or
whether they are known hv the name of Cai.hocn,
Jlay, Wkbsteb, Bancroft or Everett, as Amer
icans we honor them.
We take the following cheering intelligence from
the Correspondence of the Charleston Mercury, of
The following is from a very intelli
gent merchant, who promised us, when
going North on his travels, a month or
two since, to inquire and write to us the
state of public opinion in New England,
in reference to the Presidential Election.
He is a IVbig, but like all intellige .t
Southern Whigs, goes for Mr. Calhoun
after Mr. Clay. VVe have abundant rea
son to believe that the representation" he
makes of the state of popular sentiment
in New England is entirely correct. No
sort of political jockey ism can make Mr.
Van Burfen the choice of the Democracy
of New England. Let the managers
shuffle and cut as they please, the voters,
after all, are the people, and will be given
to suit themselves.
Stratford, (Conn.) Aug. 8,1843.
My hear &ir : —On our way down
from Columbia to Charleston, I told you
I would drop you a line in regard to the
feeling of the Yankees towards your great
man John Caldwell Calhoun. 1 am truly
glad to have it in my power to say, with
out any doubt , (although my first choice
is Harry of the West,) that Mr. Calhoun
will get the vote of Connecticut, and the
the majority of the New England States.
I have conversed with some of the lead
ing men in this State, particularly of the
Bar, and they say, with a few exceptions,
they are alt for Calhoun. Out of the
members elect to Congress,—all but one
are Calhoun men —no mistake. T. who
holds an office in in this State, (Conn-)
under the administration, is quite a poli
tician and a sincere friend of Mr. Tyler,
but after him goes the whole figure for
Calhoun, and by the by he used to live
in Newberry, (S. C..) at which place he
became acquainted with Mr. Calhoun.
One thing you may depend on, in the
event Mr. Tyler dors not get the nomina
tion, (and we all know he cannot,] T.
and atl his connexions, which are nume
rous and as respectable as any other fam
ily in the State, will all go for Mr. Cal
houn, and use their united influence in
promoting his interests. For some few
weeks, I have heen prowling over the
country, and talking with the"small far
mers, who govern the polls, aqd I do as
sure you, that 7 out of 10 are for Mr. C.,
and say (hey would far prefer Mr. C. to
Mr. Van Buren. 1 speak of Whigs and
Democrats, promiscuously. The Whigs
say if there is no chance for Clay, they go
for Calhoun. I repeat it, ihat Mr. Cal
hyun is gaining ground daily, there can
be no mistake, and I firmly believe he
can be elected on his own hook, without
being nom.nated by any Convention.
MR. CALHOUN IN MAINE.
We subjoin tire following, from the Portland A
merican, and will only remark in passing that, that
gentleman is bpyond doubt, lire first choice of the
Democracy of that State, as well as of New Hamp
shire. Such a man as Mr. Calhoun cannot fail to
be appreciated by the descendants of the pilgrim
founders of New England—they are a noble race—
and ihe stern virtues, commanding talents, undoubt
ed patriotism, and long public service of the great Car
olinian, cannot fail to meet with cordial, general and
enthusiastic response in the bosom of every Demo
cratic New Englander—all we ask for him is a fair
field and fair play—give him that - ml we are willing
to leave the issue with our countrymen.
YORK DISTRICT CONVENTION.
We h ave received a private letter from
a delegate to this Convention, front which
we take the following facts.
Joshua Herrick, Esq., was nominated
as the democratic candidate for Congress.
His principal competitor was Hon. Na
than L. Clifford, present member from
Mr. Herrick is a whole souled demo
crat, and his nomination will be received '
by the people with acclamation. Old
York will give him a good old fashioned
Charles N. Cogswell, Esq., was cho
sen delegate to the Naiional Convention.
Our correspondent says “ Both these
gentlemen are suspected of Calhounism.
Cogswell is openly denounced as such
here this morning, and probably not
without sufficient reason. I have suffi
cient knowledge of Herrick to satisfy
Though these gentlemen voted for the
Van Buren resolution at the State Con
vention, we understand that subsequent
reflection has satisfied them that Mr. Cal
houn is the first choice of the State.—
That gentleman will without doubt have
the first vote of York.
The Essex Ring.—A correspondent
requests that we will give publicity to
the following explanation, which is called
for, in consequence of an advertisement
stating the “Essex Ring” to be on sale.
It is very possible that the trinket in
question may be one of the many gifts
whiclt the partiality of his royal mistress
lavished on the Earl of Essex, but the
ring, to which, an historical and roman
tic recoid is attached as |a token, (the
sight of which, rec riling her tenderest
feelings, was to act wiih talismanic pow*
er on the Queen, and to insure her as
sent to any request it accompanied) is an
heir loom in the “Warner” family, anJ
is in the possession of Col. Edward War
ner, the representative of theelderbranch.
This rii r is formed of a single diamond,
cat in the shape of a heart, and bears an
additional interest as having been the
gift of the unfortunate Mary. Queen of
Scotland to Queen Elizabeth at the peri
od of her marriage with Lord Darnley,
in 1564, when she sent it to her royal ri
val, together with the following lines
written by Buchanan :
“This gem behold, the emblem of my heart
From which my cousin’s image ne’er shall part,
Clear in its lustre, spotless docs it shine,
As clear, as spotless, as this heart of mine ;
What though the stone a greater hardness wears,
Superior firmness itill the figure bears.”
The fact of Lady Nottingham’s treach
erous concealing of the ring, confided to
her by the condemned Essex, with his
pleading for life from his offended sove
reign, is too well known to require repe-
I tition, as well as that the Queen’s anguish
at Lady No tingham’s death-bed confes
! sion led her to immediate dissolution-
The ring then fell into the possession of
King James 1., who gave it to Capt. War.

tion, in remuneration of his extensive
discoveries in the West Indies, by which
three of our most valuable colonies were
added to the Bafesh dominions. In 1629,
Cajii. WaluCT was knighted by King
Charles 1., a dignity at that period highly
considered. The royal patents and doc
umentary proofs of the foregoing facts
are to F be found in the Royal College of
Arms, and in the possession of the repre
sentative of the family.— London paper.
FOR THE AMERICAN DEMOCRAT.
Mr. Editor: ln writing uiy article published in
the Telegraph of August 1, 1 hail nu idea of entering
into a newspaper war with the contractor of the Poor
House, and was in hopes on account of all concerned,
that an explanation of the matter might be given sat
isfactory to all. But 1 find the community is still
greatly excited on the subject, being justly indignant
that their interests should he abused as well as their
understanding insulted. The contractor has accused
me of publishing a falsehood—it becomes my duty as
well as my right to ex|tose the weakness and folly of
the latne defence set up by him.
He says I do not stand on an equal footing in so
ciety with him, —upon this subject I do not join issue
with him, as it is his public conduct which is the sub
ject of investigation. In reply to the bullying threats
of executing vengeance on any one who dares to
write upon this subject, I cannot be deterred from
asking questions of a public servant, relative to bis
du'.ies, or investigating any matter of public interest
touching my rights as a citizen. 1 will now proceed
to examine his certificates, and first No. 7:
Georgia, Bibb County.
1 certify that Mr. Tysrer,who lived in an old kitchen,
near the old Grave Yard, a short time since, and wt.o
is the individual alluded to by “B.” in the last Tel
egraph, is now in the Hospital with his family, and
was, some days previous to the publication of the
last Telegraph ; and was accompanied by David
Reed. lam the Steward of the Hospital; and 1 un
derstood that he had a written permission to enter
the Hospital, with his family, f r some months; and
he was prev ailed upon by Dr. Parsons and myself,
to go with his family, to the Hospital for months past.
Aug. 2, 1843. Z. B. WADE.
Now the public will sec in a moment, that this
certificate proves exactly what was stated by “B.” in
his article, viz ; that this poor man Tiger had called
again and again on the contractor until he had des
paired of relief, and was each time told to gel a con
veyance, to curry his family to the Poor House, which
he was entirely unable to do, but as soon as a
conveyance was offered by some charitable individu
als, they were ready and did go. For any assistance
rendered by the contractor or commissioners, this
family might hace suffered on until death released
them. Whose duty is it to take helpless paupers to
the Poor House 1 know not, but 1 know there has
been agf ss direlection of duty somewhere. Who
does not blush for |ioor human nature, when such
certificates as this are resorted to, to appease the
gnawings of a guilty conscience.
Certificate No. 3. ,
Macon, August 2, 1343. |
We, the undersigned, Judges of the Inferior Court
of Bibb county, ceriify that the statement made by
a writer in the last Telegraph, signed “Justice, (I.
S,)” and “B.” in which is charged, that the Contrac
tor or keeping the Poor House for the present year,
offered either of us $l3O not to bid for the contract,
and B>'o to report favorably, the condition of the
House, is false, utterly false.
r. b. Washington, j. i. c.
JEHU CAMPBELL, J. I. C.
W. H. CALHOUN, J. I. C.
JOHN H. BRANTLEY, J. I. C.
Now gentlemen, please to look again and s»e what
it is that you heve pronounced false. Did “Justice,
(L. S.)” and “B.” say that either of you were offered
a bribe of $l5O not to bill for the contract, and SSO
to make a favorable re|toit on the job every week T
No. he did not —he simply a died why did the con
tractor offer one of the Court $l5O not to bid, and
$52 more to make a favorable report—and the con-,
tractor himself udmits what you have pronounced
fdse, for although the contractor denies that he offer
ed $52 [ter year, he states that he did offer s'l per
week. I should like to kn nv what rule of Aritlune- ;
tick the gentlemen calculates by. I leave these facts
for the consideration of a candid public, and proceed
to tile consideration of another point. The contrac
tor admits that he did offer a bribe to one of the j
Judges &$l5O not to bid for the contract,ami claims it
as his right. Now I think I can prove that the con- j
tiactor is entirely mistaken upon this [mint, and that |
it is a gross violation of law, and for that purpose j
quote from Princes Digest, page 638.
“Bribery is giving or receiving any undue reward
to influence the behavior of the person receiving
such reward, in the discharge of his duty in a ty of
fice of Government or of Justice.” Again,
“If any person shall directly or indirectly give, or
offer to give, any money, goods, or other bribe, pres
ent or reward; or give or make any promise, con
tract or agreement for the payment, delivery or ale
niaiion ot any mom y, goods, lands, or other bribe ;
or use any promises, threats, persuasions, or other
like sinister, unfair or fraudulent practices in order
to obtain ot influence the opinion, judgement, de
cree, or behavior "f any member of the general as
sembly, or any officer of this State, judge, justice,
referee or arbitrator in any discussion, debate, ac
tion, suit, complaint, indictment, controversy, miner,
or cause depending, or which shall depend before
him or them, such person shall on conviction, be
punished by imprisonment and labor in the peniten
tiary for any timi. not less than oue year, nor longer
than five years.”
This is the law upon the subject, and I am per
fectly willing he shoulJ enjoy all the rights ami priv
ileges in this matter guaranteed to him by the laws of
our State. , ~ t
I should like to know what was his object in offering
$l5O if it was not that he might make a much largar
sun o\t[ pf the citizens of this county, who have ever
been willing to contribute freely to t!>e support of
the poor, hut‘are not willing to have the public money
squandered in this manner, and are indignant that
insult should be added to injury.
The following certificate will jirove what I have
asserted, in regard to the neatness of the Poor
House, and the half has not yet been told.
JUSTICE, (L. S.) AND B.
We, the undersigned, actuated from f clings of j
humanity, did on the 30tlt day of last mouth, [ luly]
procure a hor e and waggon atlJ niov e .| Mr. Tiger
and his family to the Poor House, and we do certify
that we found it in a most filthy condition. In the
room that the family was put into, the bedstead, and
1 tedding, was taken possession of by bed bugs, and the
ticking was too dirty to lie used, even by a dog to
sleep or rest on. In making the above statements
we have no personal feyling* (o gratify—only to state
what we know and have seen personally.

J. W. CLARK,
HENRY N. ELLS.
To the Editor of the American Democrat :
I was pleased to see in last week’s
Messenger, that the. Editor had found
something to be amused at, and as this
feeling is contagions, it naturally excited
somewhat similar feelings in me, and as
nothing should be suffered to escape that
might excite a smile in these “ piping
times of peace,” l thought I would trans
cribe them for the benefit of all con
It i amusing to witness the noncha
lance with - which the Whigpapers ascribe
to the Democratic press, the course that
they themselves ar. pursuing, and the
easy impudence with which they charge
upon others, the hide and seek policy
they follow with such fidelity themselves.
I say, sir, it is amusing to see them reso
lutely avoid every question at issue be
tween the two great parties, which divide
the country, and at the same time falsely
accuse the democratic party of the same
contemptible policy. Ask them if Henry
('lay is in favor of a Protective Tariff,
they evade the question by telling you
that he is a compromise man, while he
solemnly affirms before the Nation that
he has lived and will die an advocate of
a Protective Tariff. Ask them if the
Whig party of Georgia advocate it, and
they will answer you, Oh, no ! That’s
not the true issue. Ask them if they
want another Nick Biddle Bank to regu
late the currency, they will answer you
that’snot the true issue, and soon through
the long list of federal heresies, termina
ting in the Assumption of State Debts,
which I solemnly believe the Whigs will
effect if Henry Clay is elected President.
It is amusing to witness the pure and
unsophisticated affection that some of the
Whigs are suddenly stricken with, for
some portions of the Democratic party
and the officious zeal with which they
seek to inflict their unsolicited defence
upon those who need it not. Democrats
beware of the embrace of Judas.
It is amusing to hear them describe
the President whom they elected them
selves, as the most infamous and degra
ded of mankind, although they eulogised
him in 1840 as one of the greatest living
patriots and statesman, and Tyler too.
It is amusing to see them, while
claiming to have all the decency, assail
the highest functionaries of the Govern
ment (elected by themselves,) and indeed
every body who differs from them, with
a violent licentiousness of abuse never
equalled in the political history of this or
any other country.
It would be amusing v it were not
contemptible to see them assume, the
“ Ercles” vein and attempt the same bul
lying and intimidating game played in
It is amusing very, to hear some im
maculate Whig editors croak about cor
ruption, licentiousness, <fce.
I say it is amusing to see them claim
that respect which is due to COMSIST
From the Federal Union.
WILL ANY DEMOCRAT VOTE FOR CRAW
Is there a Democrat in Georgia who
is prepared to see George W. Crawford
made Governor ? Let those who have
felt disappointine:.t,and in some instances
dissatisfaciion, over the nomination of
Major Cooper, by the Democratic Con
vention, calmly answer the question :
What, suppose we have objections to Mr.
(’ooper’s nomination and might have pre
ferred another as the standard bearer of
onr principles, by the support of whom
for Governor, we hoped to maintain the
power and ascendency of Democratic
rule in Georgia / Is there a Democrat so
recreant to the support of his principles,
as to suffer himself to be idle in this con
test, and rendering a lukewarm, or no
support at all, to the candidate of his own
; party —Williirir to fold his arms and per
mit George W. Crawford, the bitierest of
our most, bitter and uncompromising en
etnies to ho placed at the head of the af
fairs of the State ? We trust not one can
he found. Have we not a candidate of
! our own in whom we can confide to ad
minister the Government upon Demo
cratic principles—one who acts with uS,
feels with us, and avows himself a Dem
ocrat ? If so, why will any one of the
party from any cause whateAer, content
himself in a crisis like the present, to re
main neutral between Major Cooper and
Mr. Crawford ? Is he not fully identified
with our measures ? . Was he not with
us in defeat and should he not he in tri
umph ? Will not his success triumphant
ly vindicate the democratic supremacy?
Was he not, and the party through him,
made the victims of fraud and falsehood
in 1840—and is it more than sheer jus
tice with him to scourge fraud and false
hood back again to obscurity ? Is not
Mr. Crawford also a tried and true man
to his party? Is he not fully identified
with their measures? lias he not been
with them uncompromising in defeat,and
will they not, in his success, equally as
triumphantly vindicate the supremacy of
modern Clay Wbiggery in Georgia?
Should any Democrat hesitate which to
choose of the two ? Should "any one, be
so lost to a sense of duty as .either te vote
for Crawford or neglect to yofo
Cooper? ..Which ,do we choosq-yrwho
do we supftbrt for Governor,' or'
Crawford ?is the question. There is no
half way, this or that, in it. The one is
a Democrat who, perhaps we may not
like so well as we do others of our party,
and the other a Whig—a supporter of
Clay and his measuras—a bitter enemy of
all our men and measures, from whom
we have nothing to expect but the most
violent persecutions of our party, and our
principles. We avow publicly our pref
ference for Major Cooper to any whig,
and especially to Mr. Crawford ; and in
good feeling to all, anxious above all else,
for the harnony of our party and the tri
umph of it?/ measures and principles,
without disrespect to any who may differ
with us, if such there can possibly be, we
declare our utter inability to find a reason
why any Democrat should for a moment
think of withdrawing his support, his
zealous support from Major Cooper in a
contest with George W. Crawfotd for
Governor. We again ask, is there any
Democrat prepared to see George W,
Crawford elected Governor, and that too,
without exerting his aid, his talents,, and
his most active influence to prevent it?
and we again answer —No ! there cannot
be a single one.

North Carolina. We have at length
complete returns, and the result is that
five Democrats and four Whigs are re
turned to Congress.
In the first District the contest was be

In the 3d, Reed, Dem., is elected over

Whig, of the lith inst. says that in 20
counties from which the vote for Govern
or has been received, the Democrats have
made a nett gain of more than 4000 over
the vote of 1840, when Bigger, Whig,
was elected Governor by 8500 majority.
These twenty counties embrace about
one fourth 6i the State. There is little
doubt therefore of the Democratic suc
cess. We have seen nothing to warrant
an opinion as to the state of parties in the

that 'hree Democrats are chosen in the

in the Second, and Smith in the Third.

State are in a peck of trouble. From the
returns received from the Lexington

aggregate majority against Clay. Two
of the candidates are Wickliffe and Pope,

by the Whigs that probably four Demo
