Let him read it in connex ion with those recently written on the ? ame subject, and see if he can, any grounds in this upon which a reasonable (j o ne can he rested of acquiring Texas no \v or at any future time, should Mr. Clav he elected. This letter is somewhat remarkable in several respects. It aban dons the ground taken in ihuse intended for the South, especially that written to bis friend in Alabama.

Such in terms, if not in words, are the pledges given to them. But where in {bis letter is there any promise to the friends of Texas at the South? None. And upon what grounds can the people of the South rest a hope of peace or secu rity should Mr. Clay lie elected, and Mr. Webster and his friends do as they say diey will, “hold Mr. Clay to his word"? Jiore,. He lias here closed the door fore ver upon them, and his Administration like Uaute’s poetic inscription over the gales of Hailes, would have w ritten upon it for the fiouilj. “Abandon Hope.” Mil. CI.AY A.IIJ TUG SOUTH. 'fhc subjoined correspondence needs scarcely any comment with any Southern man, w hose idolatry lor men has not en tirely swallowed up his love of country. The declaration made by Col. W.C. Pres ton, of what he heard Mr. Clay say about the future condition of slavery in the South, has been iin ruborated by Mr. Mc- Duffie in a speech lately made at Augusta, as well as by the letter of Col McCord, of Alabama. Mr. Clay declared to Col. Preston several years ago, “that one de sign of the Tariif, and other measures which his party would pursne, was to gradually render our slaves of no value to us, and then we would free them our selves.” Can the people of the South support for the Presidency a man, who "un every oilier occasion, as on that lime alluded to, avows liimsfcJl in favor of a policy, which if continued, must inevita bly reduce the people of the South to.a con dition tiir more degraded than th.it of the poorest serfs of Europe-—and all tc* force them to free their slaves, hy rendering i.heir labor valueless, if Mr. Clay should t> * our next President, and his uduiinistra-! lion guided, as it certainly w ill be, by thei Webster’s and Adam’s, the Seward’s and Slades of the North, what hope will there be left for the South? Nothing, absolute ly Homing! The measures of such an 'administration, wnwihi be .ase continued bfigbi upon the fund, ourprospei ity would he dried up, our eities .depopulated, our houses left tenantless, commerce would furl Vr -sails, agriculture would lan guish and die, the greai interests of Chris tianity and education would be prostrated among us, want and .misery would every 'where cover the dond. Ati administra- Miou coniroled by such councils as Mr. ‘Clay would be'Coinpelled to adopt, would ■ blast'foreverves with a curse, this fair re gion nf court try ; it would he like the man h of deu’li when “all Hell followed.” People rtf’the South, let then the present aw tul-etisis in your affairs, l>mnler in your ears your country’s cause, •Aild wake up all tl.ai’s Roman in you.” Caulowville, Oct. 5, 134 1. To the Editor of the Dallas (jazeUt : You will oblige me by pub isimig I lie enclosed copy of :i letter, which l have received J'rimi Col. Hu sell P. McCord, of Lowndes conuiy. V. ould to God, it was in the hands of every matt, Its tn the Pa apsco to the Gulf of Mexico! It exhibits Mr. Clay in his true position, as a man totally des titute of character. lint what shall we say of Col. Preston? He be lieved in the tear 19.31, that the great object ol Mr Clay, in forcing the protective policy upon the country, was to destroy the perpetuity of the Southern Slates —be heard Mr Clav mike this declaration in Virginia; and now, with this hull and damning hint upon Mr Clay, this man, \\ il liam C. Preston, is using every art and effort to in duce the honest planters of the South, to commit the suicidal act of voting [or Henry Clay. Shame ! Shame! Read it, Sir—publish it—spread it before the people. Let them see the statement, and let them itear the liict —the startling fact—that in the year 1331, Henry Clay declared the great object ol the tariff system to be, to render their slaves so value less, that if they did not run away from their mas ters, that their masters would be glad to run away from them. That Mr Clay did make the declaration attribu ted to him by Colonel Preston, there can lie no doubt ; and there is joss as little' doubt that Col. Preston will not deny .the statement of Colonel McCord. With great respect, I ant, Sir. BERNARD A. REYNOLDS. Lowndes, October 2, 1844. Dear Sir—The declaration which I heard Col. Preston make, was to this effect: That at the White Sulphur Springs, in Virginia, Mr Clay de flared Hint it t ras true Congress could not free our slaves, but that they could, by high duties on rm tpoits, make them so valueless, Unit if they did no run away from us, ice should be glad to i un a tray from them; and that that was the great object oj the Tariff System. Phis declaration was made by Colonel Preston in the fall and winter, I think, of 1841, and Mr. Clay’s re'lliarks were made that summer. Colonel Preston repeatedly made die declaration, publicly and privately. Col. Clifton, ol Dallas, Dr. Law rence, of this courtly, Whigs; and Robert Rives, of Reuben House, of tins county, Democrats, heard Colonel Pseshm make the same declaration, Some of them like myself, repeatedly. Yours, truly, il. P. McCORD. I). A. Reynolds, Esq. ©i n PKIPi: CURRENTS. We will hereafter regularly publish a fan fully revised Price Current, an<l re view of tlie markets every week, with the 'luting on every article under the present TarifT. We have returns Irutn counties in Ohio, in which Iturlly, (whig,) has a ma fotiij' of Iv 42 over loti, democrat* POPH.AB ORATORY. 1 he follow ing is u rich specimen ufelo-j (quence, from one of the most gif.ed pub-, lick speakers of the age, in which we live. Oansevort Melville, has all the research iclassical l ( »re, pathos and Demosthenic action, necessary to place him side by l e with the most illustrious Orators of lie last, or present century. In him we see combined, the irresistible fervour of Sheridan,and the classic richriessofßurke. After having dwelt at considerable length upon other topics of discussion, Mr. - lelvillt', ! *i the course ol his speech, em phatically repelled the idea which the Whigs of Tennessee are so laborious in inculcating, that Mr. Van Bnren is giving but a cold and insincere support of the nominations of Polk and Dallas, and ab ler demonstrating the warm desire which fie feels for the success of the Democratic candidates, spokeat length of the career, character and elevated position of Martin \ an Buren in terms which drew from the; auditors oft repeated and enthusiastic res ponses, In speaking of the magnanimity jofMr. Van Buren’s latest public act, his letter to the New York committee, Mr. Melville said : And here let us take from the simple page of history an illustration of kindred heroism. During tlie long and bloody border warlare which existed between the English and Scotch for several centu ries, many well contested and glorious ac tions were fought, hut none belter contes ted or more glorious than the battle ofOt terbonrue, w hich took place in the latter part of the fourteenth century. The op posing forces were well matched in point of number, bravery and discipline, and cadi headed by a leader of acknowledged prowess. The English rallied under the banner of the princely house of Percv, which on that field, was represented well by the pridennd hope ol his ancient lineage gallant Harry Percy—the Harry Hotspur ol Shakspeare. The Scotch swarmed a ; round a standard that bore aloft a bloody ! heart, the well known badge of the haugh ty Douglass. James Earl oi Douglass, a chieftain worthy of his hetoie name, led them to the encounter. Thus equal in jnumhers, cour.ge and generalsh p, the battle raged for several hours, and the event was yet uncertain. The Scottish ! leeder in the hope of deciding the contest gave the signal Ibr a general charge, and I sword iri hand and spur on heel, he led it gallantly. While waving his artn to his iloops to invite them onward, an arrow pierced his heart, lie fell from his sad dle. His chiefs thronged around him. Death was perceptable on his brow. Ev ery! hing near and dear to him was Hilling from his grasp. His vast baronial estates, ifeudal bonois, mililary fame, wife, chil, dreri and ftiends were to him as nouglit -1 Tii.’y claimed not one single memory, lie thought not of himself—his thoughts, were all his country’s. But one idea oc cupied Ins mind and concentrated all his being. The life of blood was oozing from his side—t»e fed l it not. The hand ofdeatli was on him— he heeded it not. His chiefs jltad raised him from the gtouttd. Open ing his glazing eyes he said: “i am dying. ; There is a tradition in our family that a dead Douglass shall win a Jit hi; and 1 trust that, it may this day be accomplished. Advance my standard—shout my ua.’-cry and avenge my Jail.” They left him the; e to die. They did as they were directed. They char ged upon the enemy with the? hurricane > ira : rge of men determined to Ho or die. The enemy that heretofore had maintain ed their ground gave way, and wsredri jven befireth.it charge as the chafl before the wind. The result was no longer doubt-; fa!-—the victory was most decisive. Hot spur and his brother were taken prisoners.! Henry Ceay is the Harry Hotspur of | the Whig party. (Here the speaker was i broken in upon with a shout from tens of 'thousands of voices that seemed to rendj die very heavens.) Mr. Melville proceeded. In litis histo rical temibiscence let him read his fate. | We have lost onr favorite leader, hut tve j remember bis parting words. And ire November, 1544, there will be another charge akin to that of Otterbouriie —a i chat ge of the lab >r and manhood of the! land—the iron legions that never quail— the serried phalanx of the unterrified De mocracy. The result ol that charge is ea sily foreseen ; lor an obedience to that great universal law of nature which bids the weaker give place to the stronger, Hen ry Clay and his cohorts, struggle as they may, must go down before it. That on slaught of the united Democratic forces, in November next, will close the chequer ed political life of the great Kentucky jstateraan—will seal the late of the modern Hotspur-herald the advent ol the rising ! star of Tennessee, and vindicate the su premacy of that heaven-born-spirit of pro |«ress, love, and truth which is one and identical with true democracy. (The cheeringlhat followed Mr. Melviil s speech and attended its delivery at intervals, throughout, was long, loud, and enthusias tic. ORr.AII/lf, ORGANIZE.

She has nobly vindicated herself from any such pollution and stands where she has always stood, w henever the Constitution or liber-! ties of the people have been threatened, proudly forward in the Republican co lumn. By last evening’s mail, we have the returns from GS counties ; in these, Shunk,\ the Democratic candidate for Governor,'; has a majority of 3190 over Markle, his' Whig competitor. The remaining coun ties to be heard from, gave a Democratic;; majoiity of 2,370, in 1843, and will make Chunk’s majority over Whigs and Natives' combined, at least Jive thousand. 13 De mocrats, 9 Whigs, and 2 Native Atneri-j cans have been elected, so far as heard, from, to Congress.

Newcomb, & Cos. presents to the public all the advan tages of like establishments in the City ot New York. It exhibits a recherche in its furniture, and general supervision, high ly creditable to its tasteful and enterpri sing proprietors. 'fhe Dining room, is now on the base ment lloor, and well adapted to the con venience of transient, as well as regular Boarders, and those who call will most as suredly find the table supplied with all die Democratic substantial of the up country, while the palate of the most fas tidious epicure will be gratified with the rich and cosily luxuries of the Seaboard. We assure our readers that this is nei ther a Whig or Democratic humbug—and tor proof positive, let them go, see, han dle and taste fer themselves. Mr. Webster pledged to the Abolition ists on Boston common, that Mr. Clay hud pledged himself against the Annexation of Texas, and that they would hold him to ■‘his word.” Mr. Clay, immediately res ponds to that demand in his organ the Nat. Intelligencer, and confirms the pledge. Webster the great supporter of Abolition and Federalism, now demands that Mr. Clay shall endorse his late speech made a few days ago at Philadelphia, in which he openly abandons the South, its institu tions, and its interests in toto to its lute. Hear him: “ That he would not suppress it for any con sideration on Earth.” And because the “Annexation of Texas would extend and perpetuate the evils of slavery,’ he avow ed himself “opposed to it, with qualifica tion and without qualification, this time— and at all times now and forever.” Senator Berrien assured the Whigs of the North at Springfield, Mass, that their Southern brethreu stood on a common platform with their Northern allies. We commend to the attention of the Cotton planting, hoe and ax-handle voters of the State, (our pan handle friends of Crawford included,) tlit* following extract from the Hon. John P. King’s letter on the practical operations of the Tariff! j It is so plain that “he who runs may read it.” j 1 Trade is simply an exchange of commodities, and tnnsl be reciprocal or it cannot exist to any great ■ extent. A simple illustration will explain to you ■' in the “plain tvay’ - you desire, hoiv we suffer both ns producers and consumers. You are a Cotton planter, and your income, I believe, is principally j derived from cotton. Suppose you have seven I hales ol codon lor sale; you sell one of them to a Lowell niamrtactuter, one seventh of your crop is! all he wishes, and you propose to sell the other six j toan Englishman. He proposes to buy, but says it is not convenient to pay except you will take! something in his line. He says to you that wages ] are very low in England, and he can afford to lur-! nish you what you want lower than you can get it | any where else. He offers you yonr negro cloth ing for 15 cents per yard, which you would have to | give 81 lor tit tlie United Slates; Cotton prints for every day wear, for the females of your family, at j ,j i-2 a 4cents that c ist 12 1-2 cents at the north.) in short, lie proposes to furnish you by himself, and j through his neighbors, nearly every tiling you need | j lor consumption in your family for about half the price you could purchase it at home. You area bout closing so good a bargain, lor whilst you are ! getting all you wish to buy at half its price at home ■ | you are getting full price for your cotton, which j the Englishman is enabled to give, because von j take the produce of his labor in payment. The Lowell manufacturer and Pennsylvania iron-nton-j ger, however step in and forbid the trade. They i say to you that you may sell your cotton to the Englishman ifhe can pay you for it, but you must buy nothing from him. You must make your pur chases from us. Congress has passed a law to pro ject us against the low interest and cheap labor of Europe. We have hut little capital, and we wish a high interest on it. We have but little suiplus ) labor, and our laborers must therefore have high wages'. Moreover, your cotton is the produce of slave labor. To allow yon to exchange it to the ! best advantage lor articles coming into competition | with us, would be putting the slave labor of the j south, on an equal footing with the free labor of the north, “which the north will never consent to.” I’lte Englishman would then say to you, that he would puTcliaae your cotton, but it mint be ataj reduced price, and why ? Because he would have ! to depend on selling the produce of his labor to oth ers, to enable him to pay lor it. You sell to him at the reduced price which he is enabled to give under these circumstances, and with thal reduced price, you go to the north to purchase your sup- 1 plies, where you have to pay from 50 to 100 per) cent, higher than if allowed the benefit of free enm-) petition. Now what have von to compensate you j lor this enormous loss? You are told that il is ini- i posed to protect “home industry” against the. “pauper labour of Europe!” Is not vours home j industry,and how is that protected? By compi ling you to give two hales of cotton for ivltai vott i might otherwise purchase lor one! Protected a gainst the orivilege of selling high, and buying cheap!! The cheaper the labor we exchange lor, I S the more profitable the exchange for us! and whe ther il is the labor of paupers, or gentlemen, is ol ; ino consequence. This is the way all cotton plan ters are protected: is any other interest in the ! State benefited by your loss? I know of none large enough to he named. Our mechanics are injured by paying double price for their tools, slothing, fee.; and *llll further injure I, by the depression of the [ planting interest, on which they principally depend 1 for employ. MOTLY. The New \eik Tribune, of inst week, |says: “The (non y Market is abundantly sup plied with Capital seeking avenues of in vestment, and loans are easily obtained, the on hypothecation of the best Stocks at j 4a4 1-2 percent. The Banks are dis- 1 counting short paper at 5 per cent, when they cannot gel more and the loans which they refuse at current rates, are eagerly taken by private Capitalists in the streets.

AD CAPTAM9U.Y REPORTS. During the present political campaigd leflorts have been made to influence For eigners to vote against Polk and Dallas, the great standard bearers ol Republican ism, on this side of the Atlantic ; because ! as isavered “Catholics and Jews are pro-i jhihited by the Const! ution ofNewHamp-| shire, from holding office either of honor j or profit in that State.” And because ljsay the Federalists New Hampshire is J Democratic, the democratic party through : out the United States, should therefore be held responsible for that clause in its Con j stitution. |j In refutation of this report, we invite the attention of our readerr to the subjoin ed letter of the Hon. Levy Woodbury? It seems that no perversion, or humbug that the Federal Party statrs, fails to re act upon them, and to smite them hip and thigh w hen properly explained. Portsmouth.

In reply to its enquiries, I would state, that when our Constitution | was last revised over half a century ago, jan expression was introduced requiring the Governer and State Senators, to be of the Protestant religion. Besides this, it excluded no sect, and those who have since been Federalists and Whigs, were then a majority in the State, and adopted that expression. The provision had no parctical effect, or it would have been al tered long ago, as we had no Catholics or Jews iri the State. The first time we have a Convention, the expression will un doubtedly be expunged by the Demo crats, if a majority. I am respectfully, LEVI WOOD BURY. S. M.
