Them never was a better diuiicrat than Un
cle Jake Rogers on the yearth, aliers iUtendin
barbecues and scjeechfyi 11s every chance, and
like the Parson, could give a reason for the
faith that was in him—he has aliers been look
ed 111> to Asa, sort of oracle in penitical mat
ters-, and nocs the history of L e United States
Bank and its orel’u! iniquities, the tariff and
its oppressors, the distribution of the pnbiick
lands, and al them measures the old Whigs
used to try to fix on the people so hard In
fact, Uncle Jake was a diuiicrat irotu the top
of his head to the sole of his feet, and from
one side albathro’ to the other, and Ann Nan
ev, his wife, was just as rambunctious on the
.-übject as himself, only a little more so.
Now. Mr. Eastman, I don’t like to expose
Uncle Jake, but the thing is so good, I’ll have
t o tell you all about it.
Last summer tlmr cum into our sottl'eni'ent a
nice young man, sent out as I larnt, from your
place to make No-N a things, but lie didn’t let
us no what he cum fur at f st. Howsomever,
he linked iu quite a lot on ’em, principally
v\ hi y S, and I larnt that nun on ’em intended i
trying their hands 011 Uncle Jake. Thinks 1,
old tellers, you’ll be barkin’up the wrong tree,
sertin, but the fust thing I need, they got holt
of the old man, treated him, told him that the
Dimierats were all a jiiiiii’ on em, that it was
no Whig trick, nor nothin’ of that sort—that
the Rope of ■‘roam’ was a cornin’ here to use
up our Governmei t, to make preest's ol the
boys aid nuns of all the g Js—that all the oth
er denominations wud have to t avc iu, and
wear crosses and ki.-s the dope’s b; ■ toe —that
the No-Nuthim. ware going to stop all these
evil things go ng to regenerate the laud; and
bring things back to the days 0! ten. Jackson
—iliat Gov Jackson’s folks war all fur ’em;
tooth and toe nail, and what with <me thing
and another, the lust thing Uucie Jake uoed,
he was ti regular riugtailed No-iN uthin. luey
dtui the ole man at nite, and arter it was all
over, he started home, an’ as he went along,
his mind was full of m sgiviugs, how could he
face the ole ’oman ? - - hat. would Diueriil
Jackson say if he was alive ? How could he
meet his old Duiiioraiic triends again ( A;id
he suddenly recollected that Tne Union, (the
old watci imui on the lower ol our Feditical
Zion, as lie u.-ed Lo call your paper,) was op
posed to it All these things begin to work in
Uncle Jake’s mind; till by the time he got
home, be - as iu a powerful svvivie.
ILe found Aunt Nancy a sitting up fur him,
and Uncle Jake he never was ashamed to meet
“Well, Jake,” scs she, ‘ what oh yearth has
kept vou out so late to-night V lor U tide Jake
was very regular in his habits
“Wy, Nancy, 1 been round attendin’ a meet
in to nite,” says he, quite ‘lesitatin 1 like
“What kind ol media’ ?” ses she.
14 Wy. a sort uv perlitieul eeting,” ses he,
shiverin’ all over, loi _.e was powerlul uneasy
by th s tiiue.
• “Web,’ ses she, “if you’ve been trying to
bed these No-NothiDS, i amt got no more to
say, for you couldn’t be in better business lor I
learn that sutue as call themselves dimierats,
havejineJ ’em. I don’t like ’em no how, Jake,
for they don’t come out open and above board,
but ar pokin round at nite in alleys and dark
places ; but thank the Lord, you aiut wuu on
’em. fui I know 1 could ni live \>itn one
on ‘em to save my hie But vihal makes you
look so, Jacob, arc you sick ? Bless my hie,
it you amt get a chill on you, and your hands
are cold as ice. What’s the ma icr, Jake b j
“Nuthiu much, ’ ses Uncle Jake, “I don’t
feel very well to-nite, oie ’oman, and I 11 go to
bed,”so savin’ he slipt into bed, and the ole
’oman after him.
Bimeby Uncle Jake, arter tossiu and rolliu
about gits to sleep and dreinpt that all nis
Diuiicrat friends iie used to be with so much,
won kin* l have nuthing to uo with him, and that
he couldn’t no longer vote his old ticket, for ;
his old friends and his old principles, and lie |
groaned in spit it. |
Aunt Nancy waked him up, slice*.cd to doth, I
and Uncle Jake had to out with the whole;
thing. Aunt Nancy jumped out of bed and j
declared she couldn’t stay tlmr, tha a No- j
Nothin couldn’t come a nigh her. Uncle Jake
at last told her es she would forgive him, he’d
go early in the mornin’ audgitout of the thing.
i>ut she told him no, she eoukln t stand him till
uioruing, and directly Uncle Juke hauls on his
close, and went out and got the President; and
some more on ’em together, and swore he must
get out afore morning, or kill sum body one.
i hey let him out —and when he got loose, lie
sung, he shouted, he da. ced and capered Ike
a boy— he run home and like to hyie squeezed
A.’lit . auey to death ; site, good oat soul, was
mitily riled about it, and powerfully distressed,;
but sealed his pardon with a kiss of forgive- j
ness, and let by-goues be by gooes.
One man soon arter hinted to Uncle Jake
that he heard lie was a Ao-A utliit - , when he
pitched into tne feller an .ike to a wallopped
• him to doth ; since that time nobody has never
accused Uncle Jake of being a No Nuthin. —

The American press will have a heavy load
to car y, in supporting Donaldson for the Vice
Presidency. In fact, the Major, while editor
of the Washington Uu on, lias furnished the
opposition with any amount of “grape and
canister” against Mr. Fillmore. The columns
of that paper teemed with abuse of the ex-
President, charging upon him tile sin of aßoli
tionism, and holding the opinions that the in
stitution of slavery was a curse, and should
not be extended into new territories. How all
tliWcdn be explained without stultification of
the Vice Presidential nominee, is not so easy
to perceive. We do not intend to assist in
any such bootless labor.
Buts grievous as is that .transgression, there
is yet another .still more offensive. Maj. Don
aldson, while editor, as aforesaid, pandered to
the ami-American sentiment of the country,
and favored foreign immigration Here is an
extract from one of his editorials, only a few
years since :
“Immigration. —The Republic of Wcdues
nay contains a long article on immigration to
the United States. It portrays in vivid colors
the rapid and unparalelled increase in the num
ber of those who are seeking our shores. The
Irish emigration is so great that the court
journal classes it among the phenomena of his

What say you, Americans of Georgia, to
such an’ exhibition of the political opinions of
the candidate, foisted upon yon by the late
Philadelphia Convention for the Vice Presi
dency ? Can you consistently support a man
who lias thus reviled your principles ? We

far as he is concerned, but “in the name of all
the gods, at once,” do not place that “greasy

same ticket ! Give us.Crittenden, Clemens,
Sldcktun, Hilliard, Milker, Pike, Dawson, or
any other good man for Vice President, and
we may have some heart lor co operating in

V Lotterv Scheme.-—The French Journal
du Loirct relates the following scheme resorted
to by a young damsel to procure a husband: —
“ A young lady, pretty and well educated,
residing in the arrondissement of Pithiviers,
has conceived the idea of putting herself up
to lottery. Tiici'e tire to be 300 tickets, at
10 0 francs each, and to the fortunate winner
she will give herself and the 290,000 francs
by way of dowry. The lady has attached some
very prudent ci editions to the purchase of
tickets. She will only sell them to persons
whcfni she may think will suit her; and iii
order to test that point, she exacts a half
hour’s tete-a-tete conversation with each appli
cant. There is nd limit of age imposed, but
more than one ticket may be token by one
person. The lottery will be drawn on the
25th of November next at the Mairie Pitlii
viers. No married men are allowed to take
tickets. It is sa'd that a number of English
men have already become purchasers and
’ ‘applications are coming in from all quarters.”

On Saturday the Bthiust. Dr. Benj F. Car

a most estimable young man, and his premature
death is deplored by all who knew him.

On the night of the same day, Dr. Holmes;
assistant Physician ‘of the Lunatic Asylum
died, of’ Pneumonia, at the residence of Dr.T.
F.Green. Dr. Holmes wo believe wasbngihaliy

‘The proceedings of the Know Nothing con
vention a* recorded in Tuesday’s Enquirer,
present some remarkable statements. The
nominee for the Vice Presidency,under impulse
said ‘t'.at lie left the democratic party;’ but;
jat the suggestion of an old whig, who did hbt
wish the candidate to avow that position, cor
rected him, and induced him to adopt the lan
guage of his prompter, ‘that the democra ic
party,’had left him. He was then asked by
Andrew Stewart—ever an opponent and revil
er of ‘Oxl Hickory’—‘where would General
Jackson be, if alive, in the present contest?’
The reply of Donelsou, of course, was, ‘With
the American (know nothing) party !!’ A
base slander. But the assertion of Gen. Call

explanation If he means thereby that any of
the measures which distinguished the adminis

were proposed by Doneison, we must be allow

Doneison, said Jackson, that is not as I put
it; how is this? Why, General, repliedDou
elson, in great confusion, the Cabinet had a
meeting, and thought the language was a little
too stiong, and they concluded to soften it a
little. I don’t care for tile cabinet, rejoined
the President; this i? iny message, not theirs;
and turning to Mr. Rives, observed: Please
restore the original language. This Was done

Tiiis incident shows what reliance General
Jackson placed upon Donelson’s advice, and
how far he was accustomed to follow it. . As

In Deliiaasd out of Debt.
Os what a hideous progeny of ill is debt the
father ! V\hat meanness, what invasions t on
self-respect, what cares, what double dealing !
How, in due season, it will carve the frank,
open face into wrinkles, how, like a knife, it
will stab the honest heart ! How it has been
known to change a goodly face into a mask of
brass; how with the ‘damned custom’ of debt,
has the man become the callous trickster ! A
freedom of debt aud what nourishing sweet
ness may be found in cold water; what tooth
someness in dry crust; what ambrosial nour
ishment in a hard egg., Be sure of it, he who
dines out of debt, though his meal be a biscuit
and an union, dines in ‘the Appollo.’ And
then for raiment —what warmth in a thread
bare coat, if the tailors receipt be in your
pocket; what Tyrian purple in the faded rvais
coat, the vest not owed for. How glossy the
well worn hat if it cover not the aching of a
debtor ! Next tho home sweets, the out
door recreations of the tree man. The street
door falls not a nell on liis heart: the foot on
the staircase, though he live on the third pair
sends no spasms through his anatomy; at the
rap of his door he can crow forth, ‘come in,’
and his pulse still beat healthfully, his heart
sink not in his bowels.* Sec him abroad. —
How he returns look for look with any passen
ger, lidw he saunters; how meeting an aeqain
tance, he stands and gossips ! But, then, this
man knows i ot debt—debt, that casts a drug
into the richest wine; that makes the food of
the gods unwholesome, indigestible; that
sprinkles the banquet of a Ducullus with ashes
and drops soot into the soup of an emperor;
debt that like the moth makes valueless furs
and Velvets, enclosing the wearer in a festering
pristin; (the shirt of Nessus was a shirt not
paid i'or;) debt that writes upon frescoed halls
the handwriting of the attorney; that puts a
voice of terror in tho knocker; that makes the
heart quake at the haunted fireside; debt, that
invisible demon that walks abroad with a man,
llo .\ quickening his steps, now making him
look on all sides like a hunted beast, and now
bringing to his face the ashy hue of death, as
the miconcious passenger looks glaiicingly up
on him. Poverty is a bitter draught yet may
—and sometimes with advantage—be gulpb’tl
down. Though the drinker make wry faces,
there may after all be a wholesome goodness
in the cup. But debt, however courteously
it be offered, is the cup of a syren, and tho
wine, spiced and delicious though it be, is pois
on. The man out of debt, though with a flaw
in his jerkin, a crack in liis shoeleather, and a
hole in his hat,- is still the son of liberty, free
as the singing lark above him, but the debtor,
though clothed in the utmost bravery, what is
he but a serf out upon a holiday—a slave, to
bo reclaimed at any instant by his owner, tho
creditor ? j\ly son, if poor, see the wine run
ning soring, let thy mouth water at least a
week’s'roll” think a threadbare coat the ‘only
wear;’ and acknowledge a white washed gar
ret the finest housing place for a gentleman.
Do this, and flee debt So shall thy heart be
at oeacc, and the sheriff be confouuded.—
