d::.\n swift and his countryman
This celebrated man, (the Doan) equally admired
for bis extraordinary talents —wondered at for bis
eccentricities, as exhibited in his writing and conduct,
was himself severe enough upon his countrymen, but
no one else was permitted to touch them with impu
During one of his visits to London, some oflds
friends bantered biui on spending bis life among a
stupid and half savage a population as the Irish.
Swift replied that the John Bull family were so ab
sorbed in self-adulation, they were incapable of judg
ing fairly of others. He assured them their notions
respecting the Irish were singularly erroneous, for
that the peasantry and lower orders of Ireland were
endowed with an intelligence and native courtesy,
greatly super! >r to the same class of English popula
tion. lie offered to test it on the spot, by asking a
dozen in succession, of the English porters, draymen,
Ne> who were passing, “ What will you take, my
good fellow, to stand quite naked, for two hours, on
that great ball, there 1 (pointing to the summit of Sb
Paul’s steeple.) Each asked, bluntly, how he could
git up there, or named the sum for which he would
undertake it, and was dismissed. Swift offered to
bet a guinea, the first Irish laborer to whom the same
question should he proposed, would make a reply
marked by mo/e shrewdness, and good sense, and
quickness of apprehension, than all their cockney
favorites put together. .
A real jewel of a hoy, from the Gem of the Ocean,
coming up soon after, “the Dean” began—
“ Paddy, ”
“ I ’in not Paddy, your honor—l 'in Barney o‘Cal
“ Well, Barney, my man, what would you take to
stand, naked, two hours, on the ball at the top of St.
Paul’s steepiu 1”
“ Is it what 1 'd take to stand stark naked up there
in the sky, such a day as this 1”
“ Yes, Barney, that’s it.”
“Why, thin, asking yer honor’s p rdon, I’d take
a divil uv a cowld.”
Paddy’s was rewarded by the Dean’s winnings.
CURRAN and the NO SOLDIER OFFICER.
Curran engaged in one of the many cases he con
ducted for the United Irishmen, was annoyed byXl l e
hard-faced testimony of a very pompous young lieu
tenant, going strougly against Curran’s client, and
to confuse the witness, Curran began thus—
“ My Lord, and Gentlemen of the Jurv, you have
beard the evidence given by this svldier.” The
lieubnant, indignantly “Be it known to youi
sir, I'in an ojjiccr, and not a soldier." Curran
bowing to the young man “ Well, sir, 1 stand
corrected —your lordship has heard what ‘this officer
and no soldier,’ has stated;”
This raised such a general titter in the Court, the
officer and no soldier effected his retreat prccipitati ly.
It has been remarked by persons accu'storr.c 1 to the
game of Chess, and who are at the same time addict
ed to the study of character, that either, as observers,
or antagonists, in one of those intellectual struggles,
mappropriatelv enough railed a game of Chess, they
understand more accurately, certain points of the
player s inward man, than a years residence w ith them
coul.l have afforded. This is doubtless correct, where
n ° mask is worn.
Tut a position which affords a fuller and more un
rquiv teal development of whal is in man, is that of a
jiolitical partisan, on the approach of an election likely
to go against his jorty. Then is the time for the
dregs of human nature and of individual character to
work up to the surface in all their loathsomeness.
The liberal, honorable spirit goes into such coh
fiicts, on the principle of fair play; his weapons,
truth, reason and facts—desiring no advamage, but
what his cause and his weapons give him —on the
contrary, the hitter, narrow-minded, self-interested
partisan, urges the war, on the maxim, “ In politics,
all play is fair play. With such, the wilful fabrica
tion, the bold, unblusliing misrepresentation, the dis
coloration and perversion of facts, the impudent reit
eration of the thousand times couvicted misstatements,
—tile low-bred personal vituperation of their adversa
ries, are all fair play, and the favorite—indeed, the
only weapons and munitions with which these politi
cal corsairs carry on their piratical hostilities.
We would be happy to know that no portion of the
modern whig press soils itself by these opprobrious
practices, and thrice happy would we be, if such vile
means had never been resorted to by any journal,
bearing the Democratic Standard. The instances
were always few ; at present, they arc rare indeed.
We have been led into this train of remark, from
observing the demonstrations with which some of the
Federal wire-pullers and the journals they control,
are opening the campaign in this State.
COL. GIBSON CLARK.
We notice in the last Jeffersonian a letter f. om
this gentleman, in reply to one from Gen. Burney, of
Jasper; "in which he avows his intention, like every
other good Democrat, of snppoiting Mark A. Cooper,
and the rest of the regularly nominated candidates of
the Democratic party. Col. Clark, it will no doubt
be admitted, is as good an exponent of the views of
the old ClarU and Union parties, as any man living,
at least, as much so as some modern Whig editors)
Col. Gibson Clark is a brother of Gen. John Clark,
from whom the party derived its name, and wc have
no doubt that bis letter will have that influence upon
this subject, that it so jus ly deserves.
It is a pity that our opponents cannot And out some
thing that will tale. They have failed miserably in
Mr. Jefferson’s forged letter, and failed worse in at
tempting to raise a very titUe political capital frsm

THE VETO POWER.
Mr. Berrien, in his recent address, denies that Mr
Clay, or the Whig party, ever attempted to abolish
the Veto Power. lie says they only wished to mod
ify it. Having proved by Mr. Clay that he was an
advocate of a Protective Tariff, and would be. until
he was incarcerated in the cold and silent receptacle
of all things human, we shall refer to him again to
prove that lie was in favor of abolishing the Veto
On the 29th Dee. IS4I, Mr. Clay introduced the
followin')', among other resolutions into the Senate.
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representa
tives of the United States of America in Congress
assembled, (two third* of both Houses concurring,)
That when a bill shall have passed the Senate anil
House of Representatives of the United Slates shall
lie returned by the President, with his objections to
his approbation and signature, if, upon its reconsider
ation, it shall again pass each I lou-e by a majority
of all the Members belonging to such House, not
withstanding the President s objections, it shall become
a late; and tbo requisition by the existing Constitution
if two thirds of each House again to pass tlm bill in
such case is hereby annulled.
Now if that is not abolishing the Veto Power we
know’ not what is. We might go on and accumulate
evidence upon evidence until it occupied a volume,
but this is sufficient for the purpose. Wo leave the
question lor the decision of an enlightened people.
MR. CALHOUN IN THE EMPIRE STATE.
Wc again use this expression, though at the risk
of exciting the irascibility of some of our opponents,
in recording the proceedings of a great Calhoun
Meeting in New York, it was held on the 4th inst.
before the City Hall, and consisted of between four
and five thousand. “ The Meeting was not only
very numerous but is said to have had a large infu
sion of talent and influence. Stephen Hasbrocck
presided, assisted by twenty Vice Presidents, and
six Secretaries. Addresses were delivered by James
T. Brady, Esq., 11. P. Barker, Esq., and Wit.
Wallace, Esq., of Kentucky.” Resolutions were
adopted pronouncing Mr. Calhoun “pre-eminently
qualified to administer the general government ac
cording to its true principles, and consistently with
the best interests of the people and the progressive
spirit of tho age and nominating and strongly
commending him for the Presidency, and deciding in
favor of voting by districts in the National Conven
tion. — Char. Courier.
GREAT CALHOUN MEETING IN NEW YORK.
The friends of Dir. Calhoun had a
errand rally in (he Park on Monday eve
ning. The resolutions adopted are ad
mirable, and will find a response in (lie
hearts of the people through the whole
country. We are compelled to defer
their publication till Monday. We have,
as usual, the most conflicting accounts of
the meeting. The Journal of Commerce
says : “ in point of numbers and respect
ability, it may fairly be set down as one
of the most influential political meetings
which has taken place for some time in
this city. About four thousand persons
were present, a large number of whom,
in point of talent and influence, may be
considered part of the very elite of the
The Aurora says the numbers were
variously estimated at from 8 to 15,000,
although we have seen smaller meetings
there reported at twenty-five thousand.”
The Plebeian, which seems to be in a
perfect rage with the whole affair, be-
- .. - -■
stows a column of unmitigated coarse-1
ness on Mr. Calhoun, his friends and the '
occasion, that proves clearly to our mind ;
that the Journal of Commerce must
have underrated the numbers of the '
Meeting, and that the Aurora is nearer j
the mark. Four thousand people could
never haVe put Mr. Van Bureii’s organ !
into such a stew of anxiety, terror and
rage. That paper says the meeting cort
sisted, at high water mark, of exactly
1093 persons, and describes them as
mainly Whigs, rowdies, little hoys, nig
gers, Van Burcn men and other such
Os the proceedings and results of this
Meeting the Aurora says :
“ Trie loud and hearty cheers which
filled the air during the reading of the
resolutions, every principle of which,
aside from the preference expressed lor
Mr. Calhoun, meets the views of all the
candidates except Mr. Van Burcn, must
have aroused the “Old Hunkers” from
the dream in which they have lately been
indulging, that the democracy whom
they have so long led, would not dare
avow themselves favorable to any Presi
dential candidate not first sanctioned by
their cut-and-dried caucus. But, thank
God, the spell is broken ! —the name of
Vail Bureu has lost its magic upon the
independent democrats of the Empire
C ity, and they will speak lor themselves.
The threats of the O.d Hunkers to ex
communicate the rebels against their au
thority from Tammany Hall, have lost
their three, and are now no more heeded
than the idle wind. “ King Caucus” is
dethroned in New York. Let the glad
news he proclaimed among the democra
cy through the length and breadth of onr
Aftef the adoption of tho resolutions,
James T. Lrady, Esq., addressed the as
semblage in a clear and powerful man
ner, giving tiie Old Hunkers, and those
timid and mercenary democrats who
have not the courage to speak out their
real views in relation to Mr. Van Burcn,
a very deserved castigation, lie very
eloquently set forth the talents, claims
and virtues of Mr. Calhoun, and was
cheered heartily throughout.
Loud cries now rone from every quar
ter for Mike Walsh, and the meeting re
fused to hear any one else till Mike came
forward, when, after much cheering, he
“Fellow-citizens: I came here as a
private individual mere! y. 1 was not
consulted in relation to this meeting,and
1 will not speak.” (Loud uheering.)
Henry P. Barber, Esq., th en addressed
the meeting in some appropriate and elo
quent remarks, and was follow ed by Win.
W;tllace, the Kentucky poet, a lid others,
and the meeting adjourned in a quiet
and orderly manner.
This demonstration of the friends of
Mr. Calhoun is hut another evidence
that the spell by which the democracy of
New York Rave been held in thr all is
completely broken, and that the opj tosi
tion to Mr. Van Boren unquestionably
embraces a majority of the entire party
in this city. YVe shall have more to sa y
in regard to this meeting, but must givV
way this morning for want of room.
MF.L tNCIIOLY OCCURRENCE.
“ Day is for mortal care :
Eve for glad meeting's round the joyous hearth;
Night for the dreams of sleejJ, the voice of prayer;
But ail are thine tli u monster of the earth.”
It becomes our painful duty lo record
one of the most afflictive, unlooked for,
and heart-rending dispensations of Prov
idence, which has ever occurred within
the circle of our friends—the sudden
death of an estimable and lovely lady, a
wife mid mother, under circumstances
such as to awaken onr liveliest and
warmest sympathies for the surviving
relatives and friends.
Mrs. W alker, consort of Wm. Walker,
Esq., a highly esteemed and wealthy cit
izen of Harris county, was, on Tuesday
before last, precipitated in her carriage j
from the bridge over the Mulberry, and
drowned, before it was possible to extri
cate her from the stream. The circum
stances, as we have obtained them from
the neighbors of Mr. Walker, are these:
On the morning above stated, the car
riage of Mr. Walker, containing his wife
and child, with two* other ladies and a
servant girl, were crossing the bridge
near his plantation, oil their return from
Harris Camp-meeting. When partly a
cross the bridge the mules suddenly took
fright, and ran the carriage back against |
the railing. In this position, the driver,
fearing the terrible result, and unable to j
force his mules forward, sprang from the ’
box, opened the door, and succeeded in
getting the young ladies out, before the
railing gave way—which it did in an in
stant after they were out —and the car
riage and mules, with Mrs. W. and child
and the servant girl, were all precipitated j
into the stream. Hearing the shrieks of j
the driver, Mr. Walker and his brother,
who were but a short distance behind,
spurred up their horses to full speed;
but liefore they reached the spot, Mrs.
W .and the child were buried in the swol
len creek. The brothetof Mr. Walker
sprang into the creek, at the spot where !
they fell; the child floated from the car
riage and rose to the surface ; he caught
it in his arms and rushed to the bank
with it, hut it was all he could save.—
The mother and the servant rose no
more, until they were, after much exer
tion, drawn from their watery graves,
cold in death.
In the death of this amiable lady, a de
voted husband has lost the most valuable
of all his earthly treasures, and a large
circle of relatives and friends have been
deprived of one endeared to them by all
th • ties that bind the hearts of the lovely
and virtuous together. Mrs. W. was in
the very freshness of mature life, aged
probably about 34 or 35 years. How
loud is the appeal made to survivors in
this sad event: “Be ye also ready, for in
«ch an hour as ye think not the Son of
It is cheering amidst the gloom cast
over the neighborhood by this sudden
death, to remember that the departed one
was called away while in the path of du
ty. Returning from the place of God’s
worship, from the house of prayer, she
was doubtless in a frame of mind and
heart well prepared to receive a message
from God, bidding h r “come up high

Swallowing Stones,— lt may not
be generally known except to the natu
ralists, the habit which some aquatic an
imals have of swallowing stones of suffi
cient weight to sink their bodies to the
bottom of seas and rivers. The Editor
of the Buffalo Courier has seen an inter
esting letter from an American officer in
the Pacific squadron—which states that
while in the Bay of Callao, lie shot three
seals upon the rocks among the islands
off the harbor, two of which sunk on ac
count of the weight t£ stone they had
swallowed, but die thim, an old lion, (or

his stomach, but not of sufficient weight
to carry him down with the others. The

PROS PE CTI'S
• OF THE
SOUTHERN QUARTERLY REVIEW.
This work has now been a year before the public,
during- which period its reputation has heen so suc
cessfully established, and its circulation so widely
extended, as to justify the hope and belief that it will
long continue to be one of the principal organs of
Southern Political Interests, attdone of the chief or
naments of Southern Literature. The brilliant
character of th ■ la'o Southern Review shed around
Charleston and flip South, a halo which will not soon
be forgotten ; the Southern Quarterly lias risen, af
ter many toilsome efforts, from its ashes, and it is
trusted that it will prove itself a worthy successor of
the glory of the former. Nothing more is now re
quisite to ensure its permanence than the continued
and cordial support of the inhabitants of the South
ern portions of the Union; and an appeal is t'infi
dentlv made to the generous and patriotic feelings,
of all Southerners, not to suffer the present Review
tn languish from the want of that sustenance which
they can so well afford.
In its political character this Review will he Dem
ocratic, and while avoiding carcfull v schims merely
local in their nature, it will strenuously uphold South
ern Interests, and advocate all quest ons of national
inmnrtanre with Itnldness and freedom. It is not in
tended. however, absolutely to exclude all articles
maintaining principles different from our own; but if
otherwise worthy of admission, they will he inserted
with a notice that the Editors do not hold themselves
responsible for the doctrines alleged. All reljg-jotis
discussions of a sectarian nature will he arduously
eschewed, and the Review will preserve a .perfect
itnnartialitv towards all religions denominations.
The work will h" printed on the best paper, and
with the best tvpe, and every exertion will be made
to render it worthy of the patronage of the public
generally. It will be issued ptiarterlv from Charles
ton, in January, April. July and October; and artange
ments have, heen made, since its remnbal to this city,
to insure the regular and punctual delivery of every
number ns it annears, so that no disappointment may
hareafter arise from any failure in this respect.
Mr. Ritchie having withdrawn from the work, the
Subserber, in order that more time and attention
may lie devoted to its improvement, and to the a'-rti

with himself iu the Editorial management of the
Review, that distinguished scholar, G. Frederick
HoLMFts. Esq. of Orangeburg, and every effort will
beme.de on the part of both to give every satisfaction
to its patrons.
In ennsenneneo of the removal of the Southern
Review to Charleston, and the reduction in the ex
ponses of printing.ami publishing attendant thereon,
the price of the work will henceforward be reduced
from Ten Dollars to Five Dollars, pnvahle annually
in advance. Tho fifth number, which will com
mence another year, will appear early in January,
1813, for which abundant material have been already
procured. Mmv of the best writers and most pro

for their extraordinary and immediate powers of re
storing perfect health to persons suffering under
nearly every kind of disease to which the human
frame is liable.
They are particularly recommended to afi those
persons who are afflicted with any kind of Chronic or
Lingering Complaint, as there is no medicine before
'h<- public which has so natural and happy effect up
on the system in correcting the stomach ad live*,
and to the formation of healthy chvle and thereby
purifying the hi.«id. " 1
_ They are acknowledged by the hundreds and
thousands who are using thctii, to he not only the
most mild and pleasant in their operation, but the
most perfectly Innocent, safe and efficient medicine
ever oiiered to the public. Those who once make a
trial of these Bills, never afterward feel willing to bet
without them, ana call again and again for more;
which is sufficient proof of their good qualities.

This is to certify, that. I have been afflicted with
Sick Headache, Dyspqpsia, aud Liver Complaint,
and Costiveness for the last eight or nine years, du
ring which time I had taken, as well ns I recollect;
about sixty boxes of Beckwith's Pills, twelve boxes
of Peters’ Pills, and a number of boxes of Champion's
and Brandreth’s Pills, all of which afforded me hut
little or no relief. At last, I was recommended to
try Dr. Spencer’? A'cgetahlc Pills, and well I did; for
Inevcr had but one attack of the Sick Headache af
ter I commenced taking the Pills, (now about six
months) and I candidly confess, that 1 have derived
more real benefit from the use of Spencer's Pills,
than from all the other Medicines and Pills that I
have ever taken, and I would earnestly recommend
them to all, as being in my opinion, the best medi
cine in use for all lingering complaints. The Pills
have done me so much good, lhat I would not feel
willing to be without them for five dollars a box ; and
1 cannot but feel very grateful to Dr. Spencer for
having prepared such a valuable medicine, and the
distribution of it is conferring a very great favor on
the public, as it is a thing of the utmost impoitance
that every family should have a supply of Dr. Spen
cer’s tally valuable Pills constantly on band.

Titis i* to certify, that I have used Dr. Spencer's
Vegetable Pills in iny family for the last six months,
and I consider them the best Pills I ever used. I
was appointed an agent for the sale of tbem about
-ix months ago, at whiclf time the travelling acr e nt
4pftme about one hundred Wes, and I have sold
out every box long since, and could have sold as
many more if they had been left. I think every
family should keep a supply always on hand. I have
neversold any Pills in my stoic that have been liked
so well as Spencer’s Vegetable Pills.
[From a very respectable Planter in Washington

Washington Cos., Ala., March 8, 1313.
To Dr. Spmicer t
Dar Sir—l have used your Vegetable Pills in my
family tbe list year with great success, aud I consid
er them the best Pill I ever used. I have inade con
siderable use of many other popular Pills, but I am
convinced that yours are superior to anr of them.
For Sick Headache, they arc an excellent medicine.
For Bowel Complaint, I think them the best medi
cine in the world, and also for the Bloody oeltix. I
can say to you that I made great use of them last
season. I had twenty of my blacks sick with the
Flux, and I administered your Pills freely, and I did
not loose a single ease. My neighbors speak iu ilia
highest terms of them. ' Respectfully yours,
To the Citizens af Georgia: i
WHEREAS, for several years past, the good Peo
ple ofthis Suite have been grja'ty, and Very seri
ously imposed upon in times of suffering arid sick
ness, by oeiny obliged to pay the enormous price of
On* Dollar am! Fifty Cuds for a Box of PILLS, or
a is,,tile of MIXTURE, to cure CHILLS AND
FEVERS, and other distressing complaints : Now,
therefore, know ye, that ar, effectual means of relief
have been discovered in DR. HULLS VEGET
ABLE FEVER and A GUE, and ASTI-FE VER
PILLS; which are offered by the Proprietors and
their Agents at the low price of only One Dollar per
Bose— from 25 to 50 per cent, cheaper than the majori
ty of all other medicines for the cure of such com
plaints; and as to the comparative safety With which
they can be taken, together with live simplicity o(
their componenijparts (which sre entirely vegetable)
and the real value of Hull’s Pills, as adapted to dro
wants of the community, there can be no longer thu
least doubt of their great superiority over all othot
medicines, not only in their superior properties in
the safe and speedy cure of Chills and Fevers, but
also as a remedy in Fevers of every description.
It is particularly worthy of remark, that out of up
wards of Twenty Thousand Boxes <f these Pills sold
in Alabama alone, within the last twelve months, not
a singlo case has come lo the knowledge of the pro
prietors, where they have failed to cure the Clfl is
arid Fevers, when they have heen used ar cording to
the directions accompanying them. And besides,
these pills arc no f quack maticine;" they arc fli*
scientific preparation of experienced medical men.
who, after having prepared this important reeipc,
most positively declared that from all the discoveries
tip to the present time, in medical science, they saw
no way by which they could possibly be improved, or
made In any way more effectual in the cure of those
complaints for which tncy arc recommended: so that
the happy combination of the ingredients and their
proportions are such as to produce a medicine wh h
never fails to relieve when relief is at all attainable.
Upwards of one thousand certificates might hero be
added, of important cures effected by this medi ne;
but it is not necessary to publish them, as a single
trial of the Pills is more satisfactory evidence titan a
volume of printed tesutnunfa’s. We would, howev
er, refer tbe reader to some eight or ten thou-and
families in this State, who it is thought have experi
enced their efficacy, and who would bear ample tes
timony of their unrivalled virtues.
