SOME OF CLAY’S Ot iNIONS.
LET THE PEOPLE HEAD.
“I am in favor of distribution, bv the
Government, of the land revenues among
the several States.” —Hairy Clay in LS If.
“1 know of no principle in tire Consti

Slates.” — Mallory's Clay, vol. 1, page 589.
“ I have every where maintained that
in adjusting a tariff for revenue, disctimi
nations ought to be made for protection.—
Clay's Letter to Cope.
“Duties should he laid without refer
ence to protection. [ The original com
promise Bill.] There is no necessity of
protection for protection.” —Henry C> iy.
“ We must reject both the doctrines of
Free Trade and of a high and exorbitant

“ I believe the establishment of a Bank
of the United States is required.”— Clay's

Clay in 1311.
“But the duty never becomes an inte
gral part ot the price.”— Mallory's Lac of

time of peace, to raise revenue by direct
Vol. 2, page 544.
“ I was opposed to a total repeal of the
internal revenue.”— Vol. 1, page 400.
“The annual expenditures may be
brought down to nearly one-third of $40,-

“Sure am I that the party pledged it
self to no such reduction of the public ex
penses, as 81 : i,ooo,ooo.”" —Malleiy s Life
of Clay, vol. 2, page 535.
Rc-Annexation of Texas.
“I am wholly opposed to the annexa
tion of Texas to the Union.” —Substance of
Clay's Letter, May, 1844.
“ Personally 1 have no objection to the
annexation of Texas—l should be glad of
it.”— lb., July, IS4I.
Coffee. —The whole product of this ar
ticle tor the year 1843, is estimated at 459-
000,000 of pounds, of which Brazil is reck
oned to have produced 170,000,000 ; Java
140,000,000, and Cuba 45.000,000.
The remainder is divided in different pro
portions between St. Domingo, Porto Rico,
the British and Dutch West Indies, Cey
lon, French Colonies, the 'last Indies and
Mocha. Rio Ccrflec is fast supplanting,
especially for American consumption, the
other descriptions. The production of
Brazil has increased very largely within
a few 3-ears, and the capability of that c::-
tcnsiveand fertile empire for further and
indefinite increase, together with the small
amount of labor required lor the cultiva-
tion and in fitting the commodity for mar
ket, point to Brazil as the chief source for
the future supplies of this important arti
cle of commerce. It lias beesi estimated
that at three cents a pound the cultivators of
Brazilian coffee are better paid than any
agricultural labor in the United States.—
The imports ofcotiee from Rio de Janeiro
to this port have grown to considerable
importance. The cities of Baltimore and
Boston Jjave hitherto been the chief mar
kets for coiTee from Brazil, but it is quite
probable that the trade to New Orleans
will rival either, possibly both of them, in
a few years.
The trade of Brazil offers a great field
for American enterprise. The recent ac
tion of the British Government, designed
to proscribe Brazil in company with othsi
slaveholding Slates, must render that etn
piremore indifferent than before toarenew
alofits commercial agreements with Eng
land, now about expiring. France and
the United States, therefore, become the
natural competitors for the traffic with
Brasil. Our country can offer great in
ducements, and ought to supply, in return,
for Coffee and other Brazilian commodi
ties, nearly all tlie provisions, and a very
large proportion of the manufactured
good* required in the empire, I>esid<*« do

34? oe.V. RESSIOSAL DISTRICT.
We desire to say a word or two to you
before the great battle on Monday next.'
Before our voices can he head again, you !
will Le called upon to exercise the highest I
prerogative of freemen; namely, that of j
choosing your own rulers! Are you all!
ready ? Have you all calmly and serious- 1
!y reflected upon the nature of the itn-;
portant trust which you are about to ex
ercise, and the character of the issues j
before you? Have you reflected upon;
the influence which the result of this elec-;
tion may exercise upon the interests of'
your own beloved Georgia, and upon the
Union] If you have not, we beseech!
you by every consideration which raav
have weight with patriots—by every tie
that is dear to Southern hearts—to do so
before you vote.
Fellow citizens, one of the candidates
before you on this occasion, is identified
in feeling, a3 well as in interest, with
yourselves; and is pledged by the high
est obligation which man can feel, to labor
assiduously in behalf of the great leading
interests of this State, and the prosperity
and glory of her people. That man is
Jaaif.3 *il. Polk. The other from his
;connexion with measures, and iiis identi
ty with parties, is pledged, according to
the showing of his own friends, to strong! li
en the interests of aclassof mauufactur-
era and Bank monopolists, more grinding
and exacting upon the labor of the people
and the rights of the citizen, than the
blackest despotism in Europe; and to
bring about an event pregnant with the
most fearful consequences to our section
of the Union. That man is Henry Clay.
The contest is between these two —and
one or the other of them must be elected
—choose ye, fellmv-citizens, whom you
will have. We believe your intentions
are patriotic. We believe you desire the
public good. Lay aside then, for a mo
ment, your party trammels and party pre
judices, and look only with the eye of a
patriot to the present perilous posture of
public affairs. See the gathering cloud
that is rising above the political horizon,
which, if not dispelled, must ere long
spend its fury upon your heads, and act
as becomes patriotic citizens and honest
men, and we have no fears for the result.
Never, fellow-citizens, since tho great
struggle which resulted in the indepen
dence of these States—certainly not in
any hour of peace—has there been such
an ardent appeal to your patriotism as
the one presented in the present issue.—
This congest will decide whether the Con-
stitution sha’. 1 be preserved with its checks
and balances, or trampled under foot, to
suit the interests or caprices of the most
corrupt and unscrupulous faction that ev
er disgraced a free country. It will de
cide whether the laboring producing
classes of this great country are to main
tain the freedom and dignity of American
citizens, or he reduced to a condition j
worse than that of colonial vassals.
Let then, that just and chivalrous spi
rit, and that undying hatred to oppression
for which Georgians have been so cele
brated, be aroused once more. Let it
fire every soul with enthusiasm, from the
seaboard to the mountains, and the flag
of victory will float in triumph from every
battlement, and the escutcheon of Georgia
will be encircled with a halo of imperishable
Strike fir your altars ntiil ymir fees,
GoJ, ami your happy homes!
The day of action is at hand ! The
last tap of the drum will Li given on
Monday next, and Georgia expects every;
man to do his duty. If you do that, the j
result of Monday’s election will gain for.
this generation the admiring applause ol j
all after times. If you do less than that,
your children will curse the memory of;
your baseness, and your names will be
come the synonyme of every thing that is
craven, wherever virtue and patriotism
are cherished. Now is the time to vindi
cate yourselves and your much abused
institutions from ibe slander of your dead
liest enemies, the abolitionists! Now is
the time to speak tbrouab the ballot-box!
Let your decision be proclaim* and in tones
of manly indejtemlcm•., that will thrill
every patriotic heart and strengthen eve
ry patriotic arm iu the union. Let it go
; fortii m one loud and overwhelming ac
claim, rising from your beautiful valleys
and reverberating from among your eu r
nal liilD, till the remotest borders of tin
land shall be made joyful with the news.
Freemen of Georgia, you have in your
keeping, a Messing or a curse for your
State on Monday next. Choose ye !
VIEWS ON Till! lit BICON.:
Cheerily, brightly, gloriously breaks forth j
the dawn of the triumph of republicanism; i
and first, we give the following extract!
from a letter addressed to the editors of]
the Richmond Enquirer, dated New York,
October lSlb, 1*44. “ Thinking you
would be gratilled with a few lines from
this the “ Waterloo” of our great contest,
I hasten to inform you that having just
returned from a political excursion

The Raleigh Standard speaks in cheer
ing language about the old north state.
Whiggrry is trembling in the breeze there,
and the Democracy are aroused in every
section ; and the finest results may be ex
pected from this steady old state.
A letter from Ohio, dated Columbus,
Oct. 10th, to the editors of the Richmond
Enquirer, *uys, our returns tire all in, and
the whig candidate fbi Governor is elect
ed by a majority of less than 1009—upon
a popular vote upwards of 310,000. —
This result, so far from discon raging us,
has increased our confidence in carrying
the State fhr Polk and Dallas'.
A letter of a Lite date to the editors of
the Nashville Union, says : In Indiana the
whole mass of the. Democracy ofthe Stare,
politicians, public men, and people, have
been aroused to the highest pitch of enthu
siasm and zeal—and the vote of this state
is certain for Polk and Dallas.”
This state is moving for Polk and Dal
las with an impetuosity as irresistible as
the current of the great river that laves
her western shores—and wrffcast her vote
for the Democratic candidates by an over
whelming majority. And next comes the
Old Dominion, of her the Enquirer says:
“We are aware that the whigsare now’ ma
king a desperate onslaught upon Virginia.
They have been writing Mr. Clay that he

ot her sons abandons her principles she
abandons him—Virginia, like Cornelia,
has many sons who are her jewels—but,
j beyond even her own sons her principles
are her jewels." Virguiia is therefore safe
for the Democratic candidates, she will
stand where he stood at Yorktown and has
always stood when the country has been
jin danger, in the front rank of its friends.

LOOK WELI, SO THIS: POLL*.
W e warn our friends to be active and
vigilant on Monday. Be on your guard
against fraudulent votes. Let every man
entitled to vote exercise his right ofsuf-
Irnge; lie zealous that even an opponent
exercise his full right in this respect. But
lie most careful that no illegal vote goes
into the ballot box. Next in importance
is the getting out the entire Democratic
vote, and we beg here to urge every one
to exert himself in accomplishing this at
| the Congressional election; we know of
at least twenty Democrats, many of them
in a stone’s throw of the ballot box, who
could not be induced to vote. Hue is the
secret of the success ofour opponents
whenever they have had any. They al
ways poll their full vote! whoever heard
of a Whig that would not vote? while the
falling off has always been on our side.
Some of our men either voting tor some of
their candidates, or shrinking meanly from
the contest, and not voting at all. Let
every Democrat see that his neighbour at
tends the polls on Monday next. That
Democrat who refuses to vote now, is a
traitor to his party. It is sound doctrine in
politics as in reugion, that the man who is
not with us, is against us.

FRAUD?, FORGER IKS. ROOK
Among the many miserable expedients
that the certainly of approaching defeat
has suggested to the desperate managers
of the Whig party, none has been more
[criminalor contemptible than that known
Ito infamous notoriety as lloorbaeking. —
This means nothing more or less than de
liberately inventing the most calumnious
libel that an unprincipled partisan slan
derer can concoct, and circulating it
through the land as the production of some
author who is in reality fictitious, or so
rare that not one person in a hundred
thousand ever saw it or can see it. 1 iiis
; abandoned game was first started to ma
lign and vilify the venerated memory of
a revolutionary patriot; and the honored
[relies of Ezekiel Polk were sacriligiouslv
torn from the sepulchre, after the repose
[of half a century; to sate the hyena ap
: petite for partisan abuse. But the base
■ attempt to make political capital out of
the false charge of
Ezekiel Polk's Toryism.
j though sustained by hundreds of Roor
| hack certificates, has so signally failed and
! recoiled upon the heads of its authors,
lthat it might safely be left to the undying
; contempt of all honorable men of either
!partv, if the Louisville Journal and the
N. Y. Tribune fund not recently brought it
forward in a more imposing form, under
the name and style of
Ezekiel Polk's Oath.
The Louisville Journal, wo believe, is
entitled to the credit of forging an oath
“out of the whole doth,” and attempting
to palm it upon the public as the oath ot
allegiance taken by “old Zekp Polk,” to
j the British crown. This was cunningly
: ascribed to “ Stedman’s History of the
diiiciican /far,” a verv scarce book puh
! fished about fifty years since. But titilbr
i innately tor the author of this fraud, there
happened to be a copy of it in New Yoik,
On a careful examination of which, noth
ing of the kind could be found in it from
dine corner to the other. Thus was dis
posed of this calumny, though it is circu
lating, we understand, in stent and confi
dential circulars, signed J. M. Berrien, ft.
i Toombs, and others, to be exhibited on
tfii' day of the ehction.
James K. Polk's Brand-d Slaves.
The next most remarkable instance of
this base practice, emanated from the zll
bany Evening Journal, and other whig
prints, who, to secure abolition votes,
charged the democratic nominee (fir the
presidency, with branding the initials of
jiis name, .1. K. P. upon the backs of for
itv-three of bis slaves, with a red hot iron.
This infamous charge was made on the
'authority of “Roorback’s tour in the Suit h
IFesl,” a book that never had any exist
ence except in the fertile imagination of
the Evening Journal and other prints of
the kind. Although this forgery has been
thoroughly exposed and even confessed
I»v those who originated it, we warn our
fellow citizens to look out for secret and
confidential circulars. IFilh shame he it
spoken, that this slander was readily
adopted and circulated by the Richmond
Whig and other pretended southern prints.
This humbug came from the mint of
Colonel James /Fat son /Febn, of $52,000,
and brass-barrel-pistol-memory, editor of
the N. Y. Ccourier and Enquirer, who has
the shameless audacity to assert that the
free trade party of England has sent
.£440,009 sterling, to he used in securing
the success of the democratic party in the
approaching election. This charge was
founded upon a pretended extract from
the London Times, of “sometime since ;”
hut on a searching examination of the file
of that paper being instituted by Dr. Bart
lett, editor of the New York Million, at the
request of a committee of democrats, no
such paragraph could be found. At miv
rate, the charge comes with a bad grace
from those who are at the same time ac
cusing the democratic party of a deliber
ate design to involve this country in a war
with England and Mexico, and declaring
that war with them will inevitably follow
the annexation of Texas.
Lookout for swrf and confidential cir
culars on this subject, from J. M. Berrien,
It. Toombs, J. A. Meriwether, and others.
Free Trade Bread.
But the very poorest imposture that has
I yet been attempted, is the “free trade
bread,” made of sawdust and rye-bran,
I baked at some northern manufactory, and
j extensively circulated throughout the mid
fille States. This delectable article, we
are informed, is intended to he exhibited
oil the stump, at public meetings, as the
kind of bread the people would have to
eat if Folk was elected ; but if they suc
ceeded in placing Mr. Clay in the presi
dential chair, the dear people might regale
themselves on “two dollars a day and
roast beef.” The whig managers, we
hope, and firmly holicvc, have far under
rated the intelligence of the American
people; this contemptible humbug will
be spurned with the contempt it deserves.
If Mr. Berrien has brought any of this
article home we hope lie will favor us
with a loaf, and inform us how Cassius
M ircellus is, an I old John Quincy, and
Seward and Slade are.

TME CERTIFICATE PARTY.
Nothing shows so conclusively and be
yond doubt the conviction that even the
whig leaders themselves feel that they are
deceiving the people, when they chame
an alliance between the Democratic party
and the abolitionists, than the fact that ev
ery thing they now publish, it is necessa
ry to have certified by members of con
gress, justices of the peace, or some other
distinguished personages. But gentle
men, it will not do, the hand writing is up
on the Wall, nnd after the elections on Mon
day next, your knees will smite each oth
er like Belshazzar's.

It is currently reported that this gentle
man has also prepared a circular arid sent
it here ready to he signed by certain ofthe
faithful in Macon anti then to he distribu
ted throughout the country. >Ve have not
-ecu a copy ol this document yet, but pre
sume that it is freighted down with the
“bags of brass and ponderous lore,” that
usually characterise his productions.
(t/* Beware of a very ferocious and
warlike circular, full of fire and brimstone
with a faint smell of bologna sausage.
ARKANSAS ALL Df/nOCKATIC.
It is with no little amusement that we
have noticed a disposition open the part
of our opponents to appropriate to them
selves several of the staunchest demo
cratic Stales in the Union, Virginia, Hlu
hnmn, and Missouri, they think nothing
of doing; but it is laughable to see them
attempt to lay violent hands upon .Arkan
sas, the western Gibraltar of Democracy.
The whigs have taken no little trouble to
disseminate this report about the country,
to cheer the spirits of their drooping fol
lowers, and bring their faltering battalions
again to the scratch, on the first Monday
in November. But it won’t do gentle
men—it won’t do. If it will do the heart
of anv democrat good to know that Ar
kansas is democratic to the core, then let
him know it, when we tell him that she
has given heavier democratic majorities
than ever, at the recent election. Gover
nor, Congressmen, and Legislature, all
democratic by large majorities.
“You’ll all have to give it up soon,
Mr. Clay, von all have to give it up soon.”
Look out far Arkansas circulars.
