ANECDOTE OF WM. H. CRAWFORD AND
Our readers will recollect that the late Wm. El.
Crawford visited France in the year 1913, as Minis
ter Plenipotentiary from the United States, and was
accompanied on that mission by that highly talented
and accomplished scholar and most amiatde man, the
late Doctor Henry Jackson, as Secretary of Lega
tion. R was Crawford's cwtom, while in Paris,
to have a soiree, or evening party, at his hotel every
Thursday. These parties were generally made up
of the statesmen and savans of that great capital,
such men as Talleyrand, Carnot, and the Guizots and
ile ToqueviMee of tlwt jreriod. Tire Americans were
of course invited guests—Alt. Clay, while in ParU
rcoularly attended. On those occasions, much of the
conversation related to the principles of oar constitu
tion and govern merit—those wore freely and earnestly
discussed and as several of the French gentlemen
sjaike English,there was no impediment to intcrcom
muniealio*. Air. Clay, who talks admirably, spoke
on every topic. Mr. Crawford, who, as his friends
will remember, was in his better days, more prone to
be be a listener than a talker, seldom took part in these
discussions, till repeatedly pressed to do so, as an um
pire, when the parties could not agree. Mr.Craw
ford would recapitulate succinctly, but with minute
precision, the drift of a long discussion, shew the
weak [points in their line of argument, and applying
the principle which controlled the question, produced
unhesitating conviction in the mind of every one
present, Henry Clay excepted, who would continue
the debate with great annimatlon, till the whole com
pany decided against him. He would then rise con
siderably excited, stride a’lout the saloon, look at bis
waistband and exclaim, “Well, Crawford, in spite
of all you have said, 1 ’ll be d —, but I’m still of my
We received the preceding, from a gentleman of
Jjj.rli honor and unquestionable veracity, who had
ken present on all those occasions. On asking his
opinion respecting Clay’s views of Air. Crawford s
prospects of the Presidency. He replied, “they are
decidedly adyerse—there is not a man in the country
«f whom Mr. Clay is more jealous, or more wishes
out of his own way, than Wm. H. Crawford.”
TWO ODD FELLOWS.
The following odd incident occurred many years
ago to a reverend gentleman, long and extensively
known in the Southeastern section of this Stale, and
greatly esteemed for his Piety, Learning and Benev
Mr. M. (for by that name wc shall distinguish
him) returning home from the performance of pasto
ral duty, was met by a respectable looking traveller,
who, after a civil salutation, requested a moment’s
conversation with him, commencing thus—
Traveller: “Stranger, please remove your hat.”
Mr. M : “ Well, sir, Vis done.”
Travel! r: (to himself) “ Yes, yes, it’s all right—
this is the very man Well, stranger, I have long
had in my possession, a piece of projterty which now,
rightfully belongs to you.”
Mr. M: “ That’s an impossibility my friend.”
“ None in the world,” replied the traveller, “here
it is”—handing over a handsome, large-sized pocket
knife, continued, “ 1 received that on condition 1
should wear it till I met a man ‘ no touch’ uglier than
myself. Now, sir, look at me, (at the same time re
moving his hat, and presenting a phiz, that might
have start and a nag from his fodder) you see 1 m no
beauty—but 1 wish you joy. Os the knife, sir, it is
rightfully yours, and by jingo, I don’t think you II
ever have a chance of parting with it. Good morn
We have heard the good old gentleman narrate
this instance of cool, humorous impudence, with great
glee and good humor. It is almost needless to add,
the traveller was a Western horse-drover.
Nature, in the formation of the reverend person
alluded to, seems, as in other instances, to have shewn
maternal solicitude, and a carelessness quite as ex
traordinary—having ei|tcndcd much of her [tarltality ■
on his heart and intellect, her most precious gems,

case might be, prepared for their preservation. 1 or,

ANOTHER LETTER from MR. CALHOUN'
We desire to call the attention of our readers to
Mr. Calhoun’s manly and patriotic letter, in rpply to
his friends in Hamilton County, Ohio. It is hazard
ing but little to say that it must win golden opinions
from unprejudiced men of all parties. His reasons
arc so conclusive, so candid and so liberal to those
who think differently, that we think that none hut
those who arc irrecoverably prejudiced can be other
wise than gratified.
LETTER OF THE LATE WM. H. CRAW
FORD TO MR. DICKERSON OF N. J.
Our readers will recollect, that a short time back,
wc had occasion to correct a very gross misrepresent
ation of a well known fact.
We found it stated in one of the Federal oracles
that Mr. Crawford, had been to the time of his death,
favorable to a United States Bank. We nailed the
rap to the counter, by a reference to his letter above
By, the way. if our recollection does not deceive
us, that letter injty be found in the columns of the
very print in which the dead patriot is slandered. —
While the imposition remained unexposed, Mr. Craw
ford's authority was infallible, the highest evidence,
that could bed. sired in favor of the Federal Idol, the
Now, reader, mark the pitiful subterfuge resorted
to, to pvati§ the discredit of detected imposture. The
letter to Dickerson, eh ! oh, that’s nothing—Mr. C.’s
mind was impaired, prostrate w hen he wrote it. A
foolei piece of impudence than this evasion affords
We never Witnessed. Were it not for its mcannes,
end impotence, it would be worth laughing at. The
The letter itself, refutes the libel—the fact, that not
one of Judge CrawforJ’s decisions, during the many
years be presided in the Superior Courts, after his
return to Georgia, was, as we recollect, reversed, re
futes the libel. But, Air. Imp, hand us another nail,
here’s another most |>alpahte counterfeit, wilfully ut
tered and feloniously palmed upon the good peo|>le of
Georgia, against the peace, law, and good order of
this Commonwealth, viz: “ The true issue between
Messrs. Clay aud Calhoun is not Protection, or No
Protection, hut that Calhoun’s plau, is to defray the
expenses of Government by a tax levied Directly on
the people, while Mr. Clay’s is to raise the necessary
revenue by a tariff so moderate and reasonable, that
the Iblks wont know they are paying any thing, and
'lie whole process will be so pleasant in its operation,
the jieople will feel as if they were tickled. The
absence of a shadow of proof to sustain this state
ment, and the recently published letter of Mr. Cal
houn repudiating the calumny, brands it as a most
shameless and wilful tabricalion.
What Mr. Clay—good, easy, ..rtlcss man —means
by a reasonable, moderate Protective Tariff, may be
guessed at, by the Tariff, under whose crushing and
remorseless injustice, the country r.ow groans, and
against which twenty sovereign States have already
pronounced their anathema. Yet, it may fairly be
called the Clay Tariff, for it wag concocted under his
own supervision, and by his own understrap|>ers.
But it would be endless to notice all the beauties of
the articles a few of which we have imperfectly illus
We hope someone more patient than ourselves of
partisan chicanery, will siftit thoroughly, and while
his hand is in, furnish some illustrations of that fine
sjiccimen of what is-classically called ‘rigmarole,’ of
the nisi pritis quibbling, the scrupulous avoidance of
those troublesome accessories, truth and fact, of the
admirable fineness and mystification, which so richly
embellish the address of the late Whig Convention
to the people of Georgia.
HOW GOES THE BATTLE!
In INDIANA we have either eight or nine of
ten Congressmen. In the last Congress, the Whigs
had six, and the Democrats only one. Both branch
es of tho Legislature largely Democratic. In 1840,
the Whigs had Fifteen Thousand majority.
in ILLINOIS we have five out of the seven
members to Congress The W T higs have suffered a
Waterloo defeat. One of the Democratic member
to Congress is 7 feet 2 inches high.
In KENTUCKY we have five out of the ten
members to Congress, and it is said that the aggre
gate Democratic majority is greater than the aggre
gate Clay majority. In 1840, Kentucky gave Gen.
Harrison Twentv-Five Thousand majority.
in TENNESSEE we have six out of eleven
members to Congress, though Polk is beaten by 4000
votes, and the Whigs have a majority in the Legis
In NORTH CAROLINA we have five out of
the nine members to Congress.
In ALABAMA we have all the Congressmen but
one, and he was elected by a majority of one hund
red and Iwenty-foltr, in a district that gave the Whigs
Twentv-Five Hundred, in 1810.
Upon hearing of these victories, Harry of the
West no doubt exclaimed, and well might, ‘A few
more sueli GLORIOUS WHIG VICTORIES,
and I am undone.’

About two hundred of the Democratic

should proceed to ballot, for the requisite
number out of them, to represent our
county in the next Legislature—a major

MR. CALHOUN-DIRECT TAXATION.
We take pleasure in transferring to our columns
from that sterling Democratic print the New Orleans
Jeffersonian, the following remarks, accompanied by
Mr. Calhoun’s letter upon the subject of direct tax
ation. It is to be hoped that this complete refutation
of a State calumny, will satisfy all candid men. We
take this op|>ortuiiity of returning our thanks to our
able c.(temporary, the Jellersonian, for the liberal ami
courteous manner in which it extended to us the
right hand of fellowship, and greeted our appearam e
upon the stage of political action, and rendering our
humble tribute of praise to the vigorous and power
ful manner in which it advocates Democratic prin
ciples, among the most brilliant and spirited editorial
corps in the Union, that of New Orleans.
MR. CALHOUN’S OPINION.
The opinion of Mr. Calhoun in rela
tion to the subject of free trade , altho’
so often and so clearly expressed by him
in his public speeches, has been unfairly
and untruly set forjh by the whiff press.
The Georgia journals, in particular, have
I een filed with declarations that Mr. Cal
houn is in fitvor of the abolition of the
entire system of duties on imports, and a
resort to direct taxalion for the support
of the government. As individuals, we
believe direct taxation to be the most eco
nomical and democratic method of raising
money to defray the expenses of the ad
ministration of government. As jour
nalists, our duty is to see that the opin
ions of all public men are correctly pre
sented to the people. Mr. Calhoun’s
judgment cannot be held in higher esti
mate by any man than by ourselves.—
Aside from his acknowledged superiority
of intellect, the great experience which
he has had in all matters of government,
justly attaches to any opinion of his a de
gree of weight and importance in the
minds of his countrymen, that few men,
since the commencement of time, have
been aLle to command.
Mr. Calhoun has always been of the
opinion that duties on imports, and the
proceeds of the sales of public lands, were
the legitimate sources of revenue. He
has ever believed that a resort to internal
taxation for the support of the national
government, under our mixed relations
and separate sovereignties, would be un
wise, if not totally impracticable. He has
now reiterated this opinion, and in such
force that must forever silence the press
of our opponents so long as it continues
to be 'conducted by honorable and up
We make the following extract from a
letter, written by Mr. Calhoun, in reply
to one addressed to him from Clinton, La.,
dated June 14, 1843. In the letter to Mr.
Calhoun, the writer states that he under
stood Mr. C. to mean by free trade, low
duties ; no debt ; seperation from banks,"
tkc. &c., to be a reduction of Ihe fiscal
transactions of the government to a con
stitutional and simple economical system,
and to incur no debt by unnecessary ex
penditures, or by assumptions, funding
systems, schemes of internal improve
ment, or other appropriations unwarran
ted by the constitution; but to bring
back the government to the essential and
natural object of its creation ; a simple
agency of the people of the several States
confined in its aelion to certain defined
powers, and for certain specified purpo
ses, and not to he converted into a great
patron of corporate bodies, sectional, or
separate interests and monopolies, &c.
Fort Hill, July 6, 1843.
Dear Sir—l was absent from home
when your letter arrived, which will ex
plain why it has not been acknowledged
at an earlier period.
You are rifflit in the opinion which
you attribute to me on the subject of free
trade, so far from desiring or aiming at
substituting a system of direct* or inter
nal taxes for duties on imposts, as the
means of supporting the government,my
object has been the reverse, as 1 have of
ten expressed in debate. One of the ob
jections I have urged against high pro
tective duties is, that it would hasten the
period when a resort to a system of in
ternal taxiition would become necessary.
I am and always have been of the opin
ion, that the duties on imposts and the
proceeds of the sales of the public land,
are the legitimate sources of the revenue
of the Union, and that it will prove a se
vere trial to the federal government
whenever it shall be forced to resort to
internal taxes to tnaet its ordinary expen
ditures; li der this impression, as well as
for other powerful reasons* I have stead
ily opposed all schemes of alienating the
revenue from the lands, or that were cal
culated to impair the source of revenue
from the imposts.
With great respect,
I am, &c., tfcc.,

Gov. Cass appears to be growing in
favor with the Democrats of the West.
The following paragraphs relative to a
great mass meeting, to be heid in Ohio,
we copy from the Norfolk Beacon :
A mass meeting is to lie held at Co
lumbus for the purpose of appointing
delegates to a State Convention of the
friends of Gen. Cass. Many leading
Democrats of that State have signed their
names to a circular, of which the follow
ing is an extract:
“ But is it the part of wisdom to risk
all the great and fundamental principles
of the "Democratic party, upon the for
tunes of an individual, whose success in
the event of his nomination, would he
extremely problematical ? Mr. Van Bn
reu has never yet obtained the vote of
Ohio for the Presidency ; and it is firmly
Itclieved by our most sagacious pol iticiatis,
that he cannot, in any contingency, stic
ceed either in this State or Pennsylvania.
In Indiana his prospects are still worse.
A reference to the foimer votes of these
States, combined with the present indica
tions, places this beyond doubt. ’
Mr. Van Buren’s chauce looks small,
even in Ohio.
From the Cassville Pioneer.
East week we had space only for the
remark, in substance, that Mr. Stephens,
the whig candidate for Congress, h<id ap
peared among us, and had made in a pub
lic address, tin artful effort to win votes
for himself an 1 Mr. Clay. In this effort
he did not confine himself to the merits
of a United States Bank and protective
tariff, nor to the merits of Mr. Clay or
Mr. Stephens, but relied principally upon
our veneration for Gen. Washington, as
the channel through which he hoped to
worm himself into our affections. He
did not contend in terms, that he was
Gen. Washirtgto himself, in flesh and
blood, identica 1 se ijtse Gen. Washing
ton, because tb nost iffnorant among us
knew that Ge. Washington was dead;
but from signs that appeared, especially
among the little boys, it was evident that
his ingenuity brouffht a few to believe
that he was Gen. Washington in charac
ter and spirit, and perhaps a few may vote
for him on this account. He declared
himself in favor of a United Slates Bank,
and clearly showed that he was General
Washington in this respect, for he proved
by the record, that Gen. Washington had
signed a Bank charter. But if he had
only been artless enough to have gone
one step further, and proved by the re
cord, as he could have done, that Gener
al Washington signed that charter before
the adoption of the amendments to the
constitution, and that from the nature of
these amendments, General Washington
would now be, if living, the last man in
all probability, who would siffn such a
charter; the comparison between himself
and the father of his country would have
been at an end, and he would have re
sembled General Washington less than a
red cent resembles gold coin.
After making political cupitnl of the
name of Washington, as others have done
before him, Mr. Stephens proceeded to
the next step in the plan of his address,
which was to make the same use of the I
name of Democrat. This, he supposed
would entitle him to our votes, of course,
and also to the privilege of turning out
of the party whomsoever he pleased. At I
this crisis in our affairs* to destroy Major
Cooper, would he to destroy the demo
cratic party* and knowing this* Mr. Ste- .
phens in his assumed character of demo- j
| crat, levelled his sarcasm against Major |
Cooper and all the old State "Rights men
j of our party, who having had the sagac
i ily and firmness to stand tip against bank
and tariff amidst the stratagems of 1840,
are now an eyesore to the whigs. But
the democrats’ have “cut their eye-teeth,”
and will never permit the enemy to di
vide and conquer them by attempts to ex
cite prejudice, and to sow the seeds ot dis
cord and strife among them. We know
Maj. Cooper—he was true to correct prin
ciples on the plains of Florida—he was
true to correct principles in the halls of
congress—he was firm and erect amidst
the coon-skin storm of 1840, and so he
will be, when he is the Governor of Geor
The expedient next in order, in the
course of Mr. Stephen,s address, was the
attempt to win ns over by operating oti
our risible faculties, and to this end he
brought up the comical case of the old
negro man London, and the angel of
death—it was chock full of capital fun,
and had an electric effect for a moment,
j especially among the little boys, but it
failed to convince a single grown man
that it wOuid be safe to cast his vote for
blue-light federalists under the stolen
name of whigs. To the same end, and
with the additional view of tickling us
into love with the tariff, he related the
incident of the countryman’s mistaking a
rail road locomotive for the tariff; this
was a thrilling inci ent, well timed and
well told, but its effect was a momentary

French paper, that Columbus was not
born in Genoa, as is generally believed.
