Below is the OCR text representation for this newspapers page.

We had sat down to address you fellow-citizens, < the approaching election, and the course it was imli penssble for them to pursue, in orJer to secure the tin led action of the ic'iolc Democratic Party in this count im l warn them of the snares sot to produce their defc. liut finding the task so seasonably and judiciously pc formed in the foil wing article frein the Macon Teh Traph, we gladly adopt it, and earnestly solicit th • .very faithful Democrat may |ieruse it carefully, an acts on its suggestions conscientiously. The present is a crisis of danger, and to neglect then would be treason against our country, and our cau and the Democratic party. No betting, no exchanging rotes, no S]titling tickets thes are all traps of the enemy. No true Democr should commit them, even for a brother —otherwise, evt i with our large majority in the county, we may be ign tniniously beaten. To II»c Democrats of Rihb. Why stand ye idle, all the day ? As this will be the Inst niqiortunity we sltnl have of saving a word to otir friends, before tin election, we must, in duty to our cause, sav, in al candor, to them, there is too much of a disposition to wait for some other person to do, what each mao houUl do himself. There is not sufficient energ\ and activity manifested. There is yju much sleepv do-nothing sort of confidence. 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 ring, conscious that their cause is had. and can do nothing for then, they are doing every thing for ithetreanse. Do yon not zee it ? Then quit your lazy seats under the trees. and on the boxes at ev ery rorner, an Igo nut and do your duty. Remem ber, that much regret and mortification, after the election, can he avoided, by a little exertion now. 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 ful subterfuges, no criminal distortion of facts, to sustain i‘. All it claims of its advocates, is zeal in waking it known to the people ! energy and activr !',y in enforcing its truths on the minds of every vo ter. who may have become bewildered by the mis constructions and false statements of its arch ene l.niies. j This.it demands at your hands! This, you Irwe to it, and cannot refuse, without injustice to iymttselves, and injury to the best interests of the country'! Anil will you not perform this duty ? Yes! yes! every true Democrat will exclaim. 1 wilt!” Then lay your shoulders to the wheel. And on the night of the election, when the De mocracy of .Macon shall have shown iiself true to t ie country, let the returns from *• Huzzard” come ho swell the number! Let the voice of "Rutland" hire a sound of joy to the faithful ! Ami the ‘Tenth Legion” of Democracy, the unterrified “ IVur trior!” will not fail to be heard among them. I l>e active! he vigilant! and let the returns from ■ Bibb, teiuice the hearts of our friends abroad. But ■ remember— S “Trust in Cod, but keep your powder dry.” .

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 strict adherence to the Constitution, anil imports— the separation of the government from banks no monster U. S. Bank—rigid e onomy in the ex penses of government so that the people may not be robbed of their Comforts to support its extravagance —no assumption of the Slat ■ debts by the U. Shales. which would add to lb ■ burdens of Georgia between lour and five bundled thousand dollars annually— nudistribulion of the land revenue, to bribe the (states and cheat thetu out of thrice as mu h by indirect tax ation-thorough relbriiiations in all the blanches of the Government. Citizens of lhbb, plump these questions to your candidates—he that goes the whole with all his heart, mind and strength, give him your vote—send him who will not, to milk his granny's ducks. LITERARY NOTICES. 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. [for THE AMERICAN DEMOCRAT.] 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 unequal. 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. W. G. RUSSELL, SABER!) ODOM, H. F. COYNE. [for the AMERICAN DEMOCRAT.] At a Meeting of the Irish citizens of Bihb county, held on Satuiday evening, 23d inst. in the city of Macon, for the purpose of maintaining their character and principles against the base and un founded assertions of certain presumptu ous individuals who have made it their boast, that they could influence and use the Irish votes just as their fancy might dictate. John P. Gaven was called to preside as Chairman of the Meeting 1 , and John O, was appointed Secretary. Af ter a brief and spiiited address from the chairman explanatory of the object of the Meeting, on motion of Mr. T. Mc- Nally, a Committee of twelve persons were unanimously chosen to draft reso lutions expressive of the sense of the Meeting. The following persons composed the said Committee : John Hogan, Thos. McNally, Martin Gaven, Dominick Garranghty, Thomas Sweeny, Mich’l. Hanley, T. McGurty, P. Crown, James Folliard, T. Scully, Jas. Redmond, Patrick Cannon. Un motion of Mr. John Hogan, the Chairman and Secretary were added to the (’ommittee. After an absence of a few minutes the Committee reported tire following resolu- i tions. Ist. Resolved, That we consider our j characters and principles as Irishmen, and as citizens of the country have been , maliciously and grossly misrep resented by certain presumptuous pitiful Babblers, who boast that they can with a few dollars buy up the Irish votes, and that we look upon them to be as base and contemptible, as their assertions are * false and unfounded. 2d. Resolved, That we firmly main tain and support, to the best of our abili ties, unbiassed by any class of men. the Constitution of the United States, the laws of Georgia, and Southern Institu tions, with all the tenacity of Irish patri ots and true of the Common wealth. 3d. Resolved, That we support such men for office as we may deem best cal culated to do justice to their country, and to carry out the grand principles Qf Free Trade and Sailors Rights. 4th. Reso ved, That any Irishman, (if such can be found st) mean,) who will suffer himself to be influenced and led by any set of men contrary to his principles be considered a degenerate son of Erin , and unworthy the notice of his country men. sth. Resolved, That we feel warmly attached to the land of our adoption, that we love and cherish her Institutions, and that we are willing to support and defend them against all encroachments, whether foreign or domestic. 6th. Resolved, That the proceedings of this Meeting be published in the three papers of this city. 7th. Resolved, That we meet again on Thursday evening next, at the same time and place. Bth. Resolved, That the proceedings of this Meeting be signed by the Chair man and Secretary. JOH N. P GAVEN, Chairman. John O’Kkefe, Secretary. n Mr.. ’ THE DEMOCRATIC RALLY. 1. Awake to the sound: *tis the soul thrilling cry Thai Freedom breathes t'urih from her high mountain dwell ing* 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. ix. 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. hi. Oh ! gaze on those walls where our fathers repined, When hope droofSed her wings through the long gloomy mor row, 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. IV. 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. V. 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, And curst be the dastard who shrinks back in tear.

Approved, March 3d, 1843. DIPPING. 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, says the Pittsburg Spirit of the Age, that £C5= Jas. W. Harrison. <=££ of the United States Army, is the originator of the lute report relative to the death of Gen. Jack son. lie wrote it on the waybill beyond 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. In Thomaston, Ga. on the 10th inst. Hon. George Carey. Mr. Carey has been well known to the pco pie of Georgia, as a Member of Congress, and bold. .tig other posts of honor and distinction. OBITUA iT REFLECTIONS CONNECTED WITH THE PRECGDINO Kories. 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 ness rested for the generosity of their nature, that we es teemed for their integrity, and admired for their rare intellec tual endowments We knew,Mr. George Carey well, some twenty years ago— he was.thw, among the young men, constituting the rising hopes of Georgia, one of the foremost. He possessed a fine mind ami noble heart—was an eloquent speaker and writer— generally popular, and could have risen to any eminence in his profession, (that of the law.) he thought worth his ambi tion, or in due time, to any office in the gift of his fellow-citi zens. For many years, we have heard but little of our former favorite, except that he continued the practice of his proses. sion, and for a whih edited a public Journal, the Hickory Nut, which showed that his mind, though shorn of some of its beams, still retained much of its original brightness. We now learn with no ordinary feelings, that he is no more ! ! That he has paid the »alty nature ejrpects from man in this world, for the forfeited innocence of hi" raco. ‘•No ftrther seek, his merits to disclose. Or draw his secrets, from their dread abode, (Where they alike, in humble hope, repose) The bosom of his father, and his God.” Os the dead, all should be forgotten, but their virtue. “ Tread lightly on his a«hes, ye m»n of generous sympa thies. for he was your kinsman—ye men of genius, for Carey was your brother.—Ed.

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.

His height is five feelten enchcs, 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 ing he may be beard of and restored to his friends andhouorable station in society. Therefore, if saitljEmmett Quinn is alive, he is called upon in the name of the ever living GoJWiich he loved and worshipped; by all he loves <W earth and anticipates in heaven ; to .answer his heart bro ken and afflicted father; to return to our hearts and home, and receive the fraternal embrace that the patriarch Jacob gave to bis beloved son Joseph. Oh, Emmeit, our favorite son, return, or let us know where to alleviate ■ywur distress. Shake off' the mon ster, despondency, return, bless us, and yet be happy; keep us not in this dreadful suspense of your fate. Return, and we will give you the valuable mill site lately advertised for sale in the Pennsylva nian, and fiutl you and James means to improve it equai to our old milling establishment. Abandon the pursuit of tho phantom, fortune, in strange lands | ,abanpon the destroying study of your health, (mus ty law books) > 3 the prayer of your affectionate but afflicted parents.
