As this will be the Inst niqiortunity we sltnl
have of saving a word to otir friends, before tin

candor, to them, there is too much of a disposition
to wait for some other person to do, what each mao

Arouse! Democrats of Bibb, to a sense of duty to
your cause? Awaken! front the false security,
into which you have lulled yourselves !
Your adversaries are active, vigilant, and unti

nothing for then, they are doing every thing for

And is knot wotth that exertion ?
Your cause is a good one—it is the cause of truth
and right, and requires no mean evasions, no piti

We are indebted to last week's Messenger for a
■urleous paragraph directing our attention to some
rors in one of our articles relative t o the tariiT.
In looking over the subject again, we find that we
rve unjustly accused Mr. Clay’s Whig Tariff of at
.st one .in of which it is not guilty, and which we
tsten to acknowledge, that the advocates of this ini
,uitous measure, in our state, may have the benefit of
ar ad.nissiun before the election. We have, how
ver, the highest authority for denouncing it as one
i the most wicked contrivances that ever was inven-
I to “ water the rich man's garden with the sweat of
it poor man's brow.” Among others, .Mr. Burnt.kn
s pronounced it to lie UNJUST, UNCONSTI
TUTIONAL and OPPRESSIVE. The Courier
nd Enquirer, the must prominent Whig paper !n
vew York, openly condemns it as too ultra and as
l>en!y advocates a horizontal tariff of twenty per
ent ad valorem.
The error in our article that we allude to, and
vhich we new candidly acknowledge, was charging
he present tariff with imposing a duty of two dollars
old fifty cents a pair oil coarse boots instead of SI 25-
V vulgar it abusive writer in the last Messenger over
be signature of“ Pindar,” has attempted to contradicts
Josr tatemenls with regard to this matter,and by tlelib
•rately confusing together Mr. Burke’s speech and
ejr article, has produced some apparent contradic
tions. More of this anon.
MORE GUDGEON FISHING.
Some of the Whig journals manifest great anxiety
to confuse and mystify the minds of the people res
|ieetlng the true issue upon which they (the people)
are to pass judgement. It is not remarkable that the
federal prints tesort to this expedient, they wisely im
itate some aquatic tribes, which when hatd pressed or
endangered, render their position dubious by muddy
ing the water, or an obscuring ejecting fluid. All this
is natural—their cause demands it, and without such
subterfuges, cannot exist. For, as soon as the hon
est republican Whigs find that their leaders have
palmed rank, old fashioned, h ack cockade, alien and
sedition law federalism upon them, under the impo
sing disguise of new-light Whiggery, the wire-pull
ers will be left in the quandary we once saw a militia
captain, he started from the market house of the city )
with a hundred men, in all the pride, pomp and cir
cumstance of glorious war—drums beating, colors
flying, and the noble captain strutting before them
as proudly as ever a gobbler paraded before bis sera
glio in a barn yard. The officer arid no soldier, was
roused from his dream of dignity, by the laughter
pealing round him, and learned that his men had de
bouched down the first lane they came to, and left
their chief to pass down a long street solus, to the in
finite amusement of the sjiectators.
A similar catastrophe, is rapidly approaching the
Whig leaders—in twenty States they have already
swa nped and areswampi. g, every election —the hon
est republicans, who were crimped into the the fede
ral ranks, indignant put upon them by their
treacherous leaders are deserting them in thousands,
al every election. Even in Tennessee, one of their
strongest holds, they have lost in the last three years
eight thousand, and Governor Jone’s majority is un
der four thousand. Another year will weed them
out. Polk and the democracy of Tennccsee were
distanced, by carrying obr defeated presidential can
didate on tnt-ir shoulders.
With this process truing on, these Irresistablc facts
before the whole union, the vaporings of our whig
blends of the miraculous restoration of Federal
Whiggery in forty-tour, is too exquisitely ridiculous.
It is like promising to augment a number by sub
struction, to enlarge a bulk, by daily removing a part,
and liker than all, producing an effect wit .tout a cause.
The true issue before the people of Georgia,
and before the w hole Union, is on the one side,
Free drt.de twenty per cent duty on foreign

the separation of the government from banks

We find on our table, from Mr. Barnes’ Bookstore,
the first three Nos. of McCulloch’s Gazetteer, anti
Congratulate the reading public tire acquisition of so
important and valuable an addition to the standard
literature of our country. For notwithstanding the
admirable and inteiesting publication Murray’s En
cyclopedia of Geography, the Edinburgh Universal
Gazetteer in (i vols. 8 vo. may be obtained, still the
want of a work like the present based on enlightened
philosophic principles, combining the most extensive
and accurate research with practical utility and con
venience, yyus often tell and regretted both by the
student and the man of business. Those acquainted
with the author s Commercial Dictionary, will readily
admit that no living writer could be more competent
to supply the want than Air. McCulloch.
No locality of interest, in the world as at present
known, is ouutted, and in each article, the gential
jreadcr, the merchant and the statesman will find the
information he desires, succinctly, hut clearly eluci
dated. The work is published in the most perfect
arid beautiful style from the press of those beuetaclors
to society, lit* Harper brothers of New Y'ork, and
at a price so low as to place it within the reach of
every reader—each number containing, wc think,
two hundred pages tor twenty-five cents.
Having compared it with the two capital perform
ances noted above, we have, no hesitation in prefer
ring it decidedly, to any work of tho kind extant, and
warmly recommending it to the public patronage;
and have bestowed this rather extendixl notice of the
pjbiuaUun, from it cwjvicUoa of its utility.
DIXON H. LEWIS, OF ALABAMA.
We see that some of the Alabama papers have
nominated this gentleman for the office of Speaker
of the House of Representatives of the U. S. We
cordially unite in the recominci.datioG. We copy
the following from the Montgomery Advertiser:
“ We know of none of thosr who have been elect
ed, to the next Congress, whose friends plight
claim that high distinction for him with more justice
or propriety than Mr. Lewts, whether we regard his
sterling personal qualities, bis well tried abilities or
his long services.”
To the Editor op the Misceli.any:
We some time back requested Editors friendly to
the cause ofjustiee, and hostile to imposition, to favor
Us by publishing once or twice two unquestionable
facts—namely, that Mr. Jackson Baanes of this place,
was the only person authorized to receive payments
on account of the American Democrat —and second
ly, that Win. A & Charles Thompson ceased to
have any concern with that print on the publica
tion of its eigtlt number, though through inattention
their names appeared in the ninth, and promised to
reciprocate the favor. Our promises we will always
tulfill to the very extremity of our ability, but the re
ciprocity which we pledged ourselves was a very dif
ferent affair, from becoming a party in the entangled
case pending betwien him and Mr. Benj. F. Gridin.
As we desire to preserve the amicable relations hith
erto subsisting between the Democrat and the Mis
cellany, we trust this will not be ptessed upon us.

THE LITTLE GEORGIAN.
This small sheet—or rather its sinaller-minded
Editor, has taken our remarks of last week in high
dudgeon.” Now, if it be that the ire of that Editor
lias been excited tncause the Editor of the American
Democrat did not deign to notice his very ungentle
manly attack upon him and ourselves in the Little
Georgian of the 15th inst., wo can vouch that tic was
excusable (we would have been belter off, had w'e
pursued the same course) for declining a conflict so
The Little Georgian has become inflated by a few
compliments from his contemporaiies of the press, on
his borrowed witticisms and hackneyeJ phrases, and
hence his ambition. No doubt it has —
‘‘inspired his youthful mind,
To be the gieatest of mankind
but we hope, notwithstanding the intimation in his
last, of backing words by “deeds of noble daring,”
that he will be—
“ Great, not like Cesar stained with blood,
But only great as be is good.”
If the Editor of the Little Georgian really be the
author of the paragraph in his ptqier of the 15th, we
confess, we hod hoped U tter things of him. We
were led to believe (and if we were mistaken of course
we retract) that he had, through courtesy, perhaps,
admitted the writings of another individual in his
editorial columns; but, as he claims it to have ema
nated from his appropria persona, we believe he will
prove a worthy champion of the cause he has espous
ed—that of vile calumny and vituperative abuse.
We beg leave most respectfully to inform the
small Editor of the Little Georgian, that a high-souled
Pri.vte.i would lower in his own estimation of his
magnanimity, were he to stoop to so dirty a job as that
would have been which be in lories us might have
been practiced upon bis person by us with imp unity,
three days after the mortal affront.
From a sense of justi e to the Editor of the Amer
ican Democrat, and of duty to ourselves, we assured
the Editor of ill ■ Little Georgian, that the imputations
thrown out in his first remarks, were entirely with
out foundation. We had no intention of giving him
offence, and we believe there was not a jt or.l in our
note any reasonable or well disposed man coold be
displeased at. When the Democrat asked mem
bers of the editorial corps, “desirous of subserving
the interests of justice and preventing imposition,”
to n publish the notice, we believe the Little Georgia*
was not within tire scope of that request. If lie dis
liked to republish the notice—very well —it was not
urged upon him: but he thrust himself into the affair
officious,y and uninvited, for some mean and mali
cious purpose that we neither know nor care for;
and from the character oi his articles, he has forced
us to believe him a more contemptible person than we
before thought, and one with whom we will not de
grad. ourselves as practical printers, by holding fur
ther communication with.

THE DEMOCRATIC RALLY.
Awake to the sound: *tis the soul thrilling cry
Thai Freedom breathes t'urih from her high mountain dwell
It sweeps the green earth—it ascends the calm sky,
On the mild chainless breezes triumphantly swelling
The voice of the past,
It is blent with the blast,
While the forms of our sires on the bright clouds are cast.
Then Democrats rally—the battle is near,
And curst be the dastard who shrinks back in fear.
Give the name of the villain to times ceaseless stream,
Who led the base van of corrupt legislation :
May beauty ne er bless him, nor virtues pure dream,
Foul canker and stain on the brow of our nation !
The traitor, the knave,
The trimmer, the slave—
The Apostate to all that survives the grim grave f
Then Democrats rally—the battle is near,
And curst be the dastard who shrinks back in fear.
Oh ! gaze on those walls where our fathers repined,
When hope droofSed her wings through the long gloomy mor
No shackles their proud spirits e’er could bind,
Alone for their country they sighed out their sorrow,
Then think of the past—
Nail our flag to the mast,
Let our note of defiance ring loud on the blast!
And like them let us rally—the battle is near,
And curst be the dastard that shrinks back in fear.
Go forth to those fields where our brave fathers stood,
Beneath our starred flag in the dawn of its glory,
Where free as the fountain they poured out theii blood,
Where liberty smiled as she blazoned their story !
The same flag is ours.
It waves over the bowers,
Where fame bound their brows with eternity’s flowers,
Then Democrats rally—the battle is near,
And curst be the dastard who shrinks back in fear.
A firm band of brothers all solemnly sworn
To march to the fight in the grey of the morning;
The base British Whigs and their gay law we scorn—
Let traitors and tyrants be wise at our warning!
Our franchise, our cause—
Full righis and just laws—
We’ll die for th**rn all or we ask no applause 1
Then Democrats rally—the battle is r„*ar,

Approved, March 3d, 1843.
We have heard a great deal about this
filthy practice, much in vogue among la
dies(\) in many of the Southern States,
but have never seen the process described
until we met with the following in the
Medical Journal.— Tropic.
The polite vocabularyof this country
has become enriched with the new and
j elegant word “dipping.” A lady ora
Miss chews the end of a stick until she
converts it into a kind of brush or fibrous
mop, which she then proceeds to dip in
to snutf, with which she rubs her teeth
and gums. At first she presses the pow
dered weed with a gentle hand, but lie
coming enamored, at last touches so
deeply as to consume a bottle of snuff in
a week. Whole families and whole
schools of girls are said, with a small
number of cleanly exceptions, to be giv
en to tins method of titillating their ner
vous systems; and many, by the time
they are full grown, have become so thor
oughly impregnated with the powder,
that their apparel might hang in a hot
room the whole summer, without being
touched by the moths.— We know of but
two advantages from tliis habit. Ist. Jt
may render them insensible to the breath
of the other sex, who begin the use of
tobacco with the study of grammar. 2d.
It Call be made a substitute ot whiskey
(now falling into discredit) by those who
arc in affliction Thus we are told by a
gentleman, that he lately Saw a mother'
seated at the bed side of her expiring son,
with an open dish of snuff on the table
among his medicines, into which she
pi united her “dipper” as often as she
sighed; and when the tears of grief rolled
down tiqg ,cheeks, they mingled with
streams of snuff-colored saliva from the
corners of her mouth. It seems hard
hearted to condemn a custom fraught
with such comforts ; but we are com
pelled to say that it is not without many
opposing effects. In our inquiries into
the disettses of the sex in the South, we
have already collected satisfactory evi
dence that “dipping” is tho cause of some
and an aggravation of many more. We
might refer to its effect on their breath,
complexion and cleanliness, but this we
shall leave in the hands of the gentle
men who are immediately interested.
Pass the fellow around. —.We
have ascertained upon good authority,

report relative to the death of Gen. Jack

Dayton, from whence it was copied and
circulated over the country. We could
not ascertain the rank of this man who
disgraces the uniform he wears, but hope
someone will inform us of it.

OBITUA iT REFLECTIONS CONNECTED WITH THE PRECGDINO
That man’s heart is but little attuned to the better feelings
of our na ure, who can listen unmoved to the knell warning
the living, that another human soul, has beeQ dismissed from
its earthly tenement into the illimitable unknown of eternity,
with all its awful realities, all its shadowy mysteries, and
summoned to appear at the bar of that dread tribunal, where
the monarch and the mendicant bocomc alike prostrate in
trembling impotence—where we also, ere long, must abide
the same solemn, fearful ordeal.
If such are the suggestions that occupy the sobered and
efleeting mind, when the departed was known only as a fel.
low being, how much more impressive and affecting should
hey be when the victim upon whom the cold hand of death
has fallen, was once numbered with those on whom our fond

Emmett educated at Nazareth ami Lafayette
Colb ge, studied law with E. T. M’Dowill, Esq. of
Doyles town, Pa., admitted to that bar, and opened an
office at that place last spring. He left his office,
books, and clothing, except the suit he haJ on, with
out a change of linen, or the leas* supply of funds, on
the 20th of August last, on a rainy morning, before
day, alone. He left, enclosed in his office Bi le, a
letter addressed to his brother George, sealed with a
black seal, (an emblem of death,) containing the
highest wrought feelings of a desponding heart, sta
ting that all efforts for discovery of his person or mo
tive would he unavailing. Nd shadow of innjligencc
has yet bt on obtained of him,; mystery and sorrow

fair complexion, with a gentlemanly deportment,
which characterizes a man of refined education.
.Editors of leading journals in the United States
are called upon by the ties of suffering humanity to
give this a passing notice in thoir papers, that if liv
