Nov. 23rd, 1S44.
"Who is James K. Polk?" The
defeated whig candidate for elector in
this district, in his address to the citi
zens of Pike, some time in the summer,
. asked with a'good deal o) apparent seri
ousness and candour the question of
"Who is James K. Polk?" We thought
at the time, and still think, that Mr.
. Polk ooght not and would not suffer any
disparagement in' conseqence of the ig
nora'ice of Mr. Thomas L. Anderson.
It assuredly was not Mr. Polk's faul
if Mr. A."was ignorant of the fact l!i:i(
he had filled the office of Governor of
Tennessee, and had fur a period of four
teen years, been honored with a seat in
the councils of the nation, in'defiance of
strong political opposition; and that he
had also filled the office of Speaker of
the House of Representatives, the duties
of which, it is admitted on ull hands, he
discharged wilhextrserdinary prompt
ness and impartiality and finally, that
he was put forward by the Democratic
National Convention, as the impersona
tion of Democratic principles, and as a
suitable person to administer the'affairfi
of this mighty republic, and the peo
ple, yea, the sovereign people the mill
ions have ratified the action of that
convention, and James K. Polk isJPresi-
dent of the United States. Put a mark
there, Mr. Anderson.
Whig Consolation. The St. Louis
Republican, claims that the Whig party
and Mr Clay himself, although beaten
in the contest, have much'Jof which to
be proud; and refers to the fact that Mr.
Clay carricdjiis own state and the coun
ty in which he lives. Well, so he did
and why should he not? Who expect-
ed him to do less than carry the vote of
his state and county. Mr. Clay is a
whig, and as a matter of course, could
not but receive the vote of his own whig
Kentucky. Mr. Clay's friends are cer
tainly thankful for very small favors, &
are evidently pushed for materials out
of which to manufacture consolation
for the party, in their grpat affliction.
Geobcia. Polk's majority, in the 67
counties heard from, is 2,320. The
