THE CANVAUS Full UOVKItNoll
THE CANDIDATES TOUETHEH.
IIuntstii-lk, Mo., May 7ih, 04O.
Mn. Editor: Sir, I send you for publi
ciiion (if you think proper to insert it or
any part thereof) nn account of n meet
ing between Judge Reynolds and General
Clmk at this place on yesterday. Rey
nolds made a speech to the citizens of Ran
dolph county, ot this pluce, on the 28th
ilny of April, at which time he took occa
sion to say that Clark's friends had charged
him with avoiding Chirk in the Canvass;
lie denied .that , he had rilher avoided
( lark, or known of the times and places ol
lit nppoint.nenis to speak but expressed
a willingness find desire to meet Clark, nnd
he made on appointment to speak here
again jestorday when he had the picas
uro of a meeting with Clark. Reynolds
sp'Ae first ! nftur a preamble of honesty of
purpose, &.c. he violently assailed internal
improvements and attempted to cast all
the blame and responsibility for such meas
ures on the Whigs and he applauded the
democratic parly and legislatures of Mis
souri for not having had any part or lot in
the matter, he spoke strongly in favor of a
gold and silver currency, and abused nli
batiks; he was in favor of the currency
bill proposed and passed by the House of
Representatives in the last legislature of
Missouri in every thing except that he
would not exclude nt this time ten dollar
notes from circulation; he compared the
influx of specie into our country to the
promise made by the Son of Cod lo the
sons of men, in which he said "ask and
you shall receive," the Judge said that we
had only to ask for specie and Ave would
have aplenty of it; he denounced the estab
lishment of a bank of the United States as
unconstitutional and subversive of liberty;
he told the people that if they consented lo
make a bank they would sell their liberty
for a mess of pnttnge, and from that mo
ment they would be bound slaves forever;
he drew large and frequent drafts on Aesop's
fables and the bible for quotations in his
speech, until 1 was convinced that if the
fables and the bible had been hanks he
would not have been opposed to them, (be
cause if such land been (he case there would
have been a deficit of half his speech,)
he charged the Whigs with deceiving the
people, tjy telling them that the times were
hard, money scarce, the currency deranged
nnd depreciated, the national government
corrupt, extravagant, &c, he said hard
times, &.c. was all in their eyes, but he in
formed them that they must work out their
own salvation in politics as well as in reli
gion. The Judge followed close in the tracks
of Van Buren made when he told the peo
ple they expected too much from the gov
ernment, but that the government would
take care of itself, and the people must
take care of themselves; he eulogised the
sub-treasury scheme of Van Biyen, and
told the people there was nothing new or
dangerous in it, that it was simple, safe, and
old fashioned, and that the danger was all
in his eye; he defended his party for pro
scribing men for their opinions; he told the
people if. he was elected governor le would
enquire for the politics of a citizen before
appointing him to otlice, and that he would
not appoint a Whig if a democrat was as
well qualified." After speaking for near 4
hours, apparently determined lo kill time
and weary his hearers he concluded. Gen.
Clark then addressed the company, he ably
and triumphantly exposed and refuted the
principles and practices advocated by his
opponent, and he carried the war far into
the interior of Africa; he proved clearly
that the system of internal improvements
in Missouri was the bantling of the present
self-styled democratic party, that in 183G
when the rail road convention met in St.
Louis, Hans Smith and Dr. Rclf (both then
and now modern democrats,) were elected
I'resident and Vice President of that con
vention; lie read the enthusiastic devotion
of modern democrats to internal improve
mcnts,from the circular address of the pres
ent democratic governor of Missouri, pub
lished during the last canvass for governor,
he also proved by the first message of gov
ernor Hoggs that he and his party were
then in favour of checkering over the state
with rail roads like a farmer checkers his
fulds to plant corn. Clark declared that he
and the Whigs were opposed to going in
debt for the purpose of improvements, but
that he would be in favor of constructing
such as w ere really needed when we should
have the money of our own to pav for
their construe tic n;he denounced the cur
rency bill as calculated to make money
scarce in our state, of which we now have
o little that the citizens cannot get enough
to answer their indispensable and necessary
purposes; he demonstrated that from the
powers possessed by the state governments
the federal government could not exclude
bank paper fiom circulation, and that every
attempt of the general government to col
lect specie w as directly calculated to make
the rich richer, nnd the poor poorer, and
also to create tw curriicies in the coun
try, one good for the government which
would iuc reuse the salaries of ollicers now
too high, the oilier depreciated und bad for
ih people, for vvhic'i they must labor and
sell their produce and prnpei ly, and thai
the only tyieius by w hich there could be a
good nnd' safi currency for the people and
the govcrnmeit was the establishment of a
bank of thfl Uiied State, well regulated
and restricted. Clark was very happy in
showing that Van Buren and the modern
democrats by their opposition to a national
bank and supporting the sub-treasury pro
jecl,4nstc:id of walking in the footsteps of
Jackson, were travelling at right angles
from his trucks, and that instead of a bank's
subverting the liberties of the people, it
would be n strong guard around their liber
ties, by keeping the public money out of
the reach of the I'resident and his officers,
but that if the sub-treasury was adopted,
the public money Would then be under the
control and within the grasp of the Presi-
lentand bin ollicers: he proved by the offi
cial acts and votes of the republicans and
federalists that a national bank was a repub
lican measure, that Washington and Madi
son, the fathers of their country and the
constitution was in favor of a national
bank, that ihey were republicans and un
derstood the constitution, that the federal
ists had opposed the creation of the late
bank of the United States, that the party
opposed to the last war with " England
(amongst which was Van Buren, and which
was the federal party,) was opposed to the
bank. Clark then declared to the people
the course he would pursue in appointing
men to office if he should be elected gover
nor; he nobly declared that he would know
no man nor no man's politics, but that he
would apply the good old Jefiersonian test,
"is he honest, is he capable, is he faithful to
the consliturion," and if he found him such'
it would be republicanism and democracy
enough for him, as it had been enough for
Jefferson, and he would appoint such a man
without any further enquiry whatsoever,
about his politics; that he had no friends to
reward, nor enemies to punish. I have
already extended this article greatly beyond
what I intended when I sat down to write,
I will only add in conclusion that Reynolds
has good cause to rue the day he met Clark,
the triumph Clark obtained over him in the
debate was as complete as his friends could
have wished for, or desired, vindictive in
deed must have been the feelings of the
Whig who desired a greater victory, it was
enough in all conscience for one day, the
calibre of Reynolds and of his principles
are too light to contend with Clark, and the
warm enthusiastic applause of the people
given to Clark at the conclusion of his
speech told to Reynolds and his party (for
he declares himself a partizan, and says he
will sink or swim with his party and their
principles) in language like thunder that
they would support Cla-k and the princi.
pies he advocated. Reynolds has an ap
pointment to speak to day at Centreville,
in Macon county, Clark will again be with
him there, and I now'predict that Reynolds
will flv oflf at a tangent, and he and Clark
will meet no more during the canvass, un
less Clark can again fall in upon him as he
did yesterday, the result will prove whether
my predictions are true or not. Clark has
published in the Boon's Lick Times, when
and where lie will address the people up to
some time in June. If Reynolds does not
acknowledge the superior prowess of Clark
he will go with him; otherwise he will be
ofl. An Old Fasiiionkd Republican.
For the Times.
Ma. Cauv I accidentally overheard two
democrats make some very important ad
missions the other day. They expressed
great alarm for the success of their party
even in this State, and to use the words of
one ot them, they "were the worst whipped
boys in the world" unless their newspapers
and orators could make the people believe
Gen. Harrison an abolitionist and a feder
alist; "but" said one of them, "that's too
d d absurd for the people to believe lonu."
"Well," says the other, "we are in a mon
strous tight place, and the only way is to
tell the people tint Gen. Harrison is an abo
litionist, a federalist and a coward we can
make some belicvs it any-how." "But" Said
the other, "whet the people find we are
lying to them, they'll not believe us here
after, when we do tell the truth." "Damn
the dilTerence" replied the other, "if we can
only get Van Buren in this time there's no
trouble hkrkajter.." I must confess Mr.
Editor, that I was greatly astonished at such
remarks from leading Democrats. Truly,
if Van Buren can defeat us now if he
can control such an influence now, as to
defeat the voice of the PEOPLE, then as
this Democrat predicted, they can always
keep in power, nnd the people may as well
acknowledge "'Martin the First' to be
King of the United States.
A Van Bt'nEN Man of '3G.
THE WAR PARTY.
Since tlio Federalists have rallied under the ban
ner of a military chieftain, they appear to have im
bibed the spirit of warriors tagernr the fight.
Paris Sentinel.
Yes, Mr. Sentinel, the same spirit which
animated Harrison and his gallant soldiers
at lippecanoe, the Thames and other
memorable battle grounds, is now "imbibed"'
by the vkoplf, and you Locos will be
about rts successful in your attacks upon
the Log Cabin, as was Proctor and the In
dians upon Fort Meigs. ,
CARRVlNt OUT TIIE PRINCIPLE.
We hoard yesterday that en old dycd-ia-llic
wool Loco, had cut djwn every applo tree in his
orchard lo prcvont the Whit" front making hard
cider next lull '.
VIRGINIA
HAS GONE FOR
HARRISON!!!
The 'Loco Focos will doubtless deny or try to
evade this, us Ihey do every thing else that makes
for Harrison or ogainst Van Buren but the fact
is so. We now run up the majority of the Repub
lican candidate to at least ICO, and those who will
lake the trouble to cypher a little mny see that we
are not very extravagant even in that calculation.
Truly the retribution of the people is '-ample and
glorious."
THE BACKING O U TA G A IN.
The last Democrat labors hard to throw
oh" the merited obloquy which is cast upon
the Loco r oco orators, for their inglorious
and cowardly withdrawment of the agree
ment entered into at Franklin, to meet
lere and answf.ii Mn. Lkonako's speech
at that place; but its "explanations" prove
wholly nuortive they won l go down.
We stated a few weeks since how the ar.
rangement, entered into at Franklin, was
then understood, but as the Democrat ap
pears to be a little ignorant on the subject?
we will again state the particulars. Mr
Leonard having concluded his speech at
Franklin, Dr. Lowry, Mr. Hickerson and
Dr. Redman, expressed great anxiety to an
swer him, and requested Mr. L. to remain
the next day and listen to their answers,
as it was then "too late to reply to a six
hours speech." Mr. L. told them his err
gagements were such that it would be im
possible for him to remain, but that he
would meet them on some future day, that
might be agreed upon, and hear thkir re
plv, and would then make good what he
had said that day against the administration
To this the gentlemen agreed to, and fixed
their ow n day and place, which was Friday
the 8th of May, at this town. After this
was settled, Mr. Hickerson voluntarily
agreed to open the discussion, and was to
confine his remarks to one hour Mr.Lowry
asked but a half hour, Dr. Redman, as we
before remarked, did not state any time he
should occupy . Well, the day arrived, the
orators appeared, but instead of fulfilling
their engagement several hours were con
sumed in idle debate, the Locos urging the
unfairness of their own bargain, and Mr.
Leonard holding them to it. After it was
settled that their agreement was to be for
feiled, Mr. Leonard made divers proposi
ti', ns, all of which they rejected, and , as a
matter of course the meeting was dissolved
The fallacious plea that the Loco Focos,
ci-.nt.rally did not uNDKitsTANii the proposi
tion made at Franklin, is absurd. They all
understood it, and this plea of ignorance
was only adduced as an excuse to get ofl
If they did not so understand it why the si
lence of the Democrat on the subject
why didn't that truth telling oracle explain
We stated two weeks before the day ap
pointed for discussion, how the arrange
ment was made and understood, and if it was
incorrect why did that print sutler it to go
unexplained, what reason can it offer for
not correcting it J The reason is very ob
vious. They did not dare contradict it.
They knew that it was impolitic, unsafe,
and as one of their leaders expressed it,
"foolish in the extreme" to suffer their prin
ciplestobe thoroughly investigated and coir
mcnted upon; they knew they could not
answer and refute what Mr. Leonard had
asserted, and therefore, they adopted the
old motto "an honorable retreat to a shame
less defeat
Mr. Ritchie of the Richmond Enquirer is "awful
vrvthy" at the result of the election in the Old
Dominion, and threatens to expose the people to
hold theii: up to public indignation, for their high
handed course. Ho says he will prove that the
Democrats lost the state by the management of the
rascally Wliijjs, and before next fall ho will expose
them !! Ho is "chuck" full of sleeping thunder,
and a storm is soon expected.
A PRETTY GOOD 'UN.
On the morning of the first day's races in this
place the Murimon filly was the almost uiiiversal
favorite, and it was confidently believed, she would
win tlio face. A very prominent Democrat (and
by the way a gentleman) was offering to bet on the
filly pretty liberally, and to show how confident he
was, he said he was willing to consider this race as
a fair test ef the Presidential clectigu, and that
the filly would come out just about as far ahead
of her competitors is Van Buren would of Old Tip.
The race came oft", but on the first heat the filly
was a half a length in the rear, and on the second
she barely saved her distance The Loco looked
rather blue, "but" said he, "it must be that the
iriaro was sick." Wo should not be surprised if
the election inVirginia made Matty e little "sick"
too, which we suppose will be a good reason for
his defeat.
03-We have received a number of the Boon's
Lick Times, a new federal paper, blished at Fay
ette, Missouri, by Cyril V. Cady. .V. . Democrat.
The author of the above paragraph, was
formerly the editor of one of the lowest and
most filthy federal Journals ever printed in
old federal New England tho Concord
Patriot, lie is a pretty fallow to accuse
us of federalism
"It can't bb possible," said a Loco Koco yes
terday morning, when a woe begone chop fallen
brother democrat told him Virginia had coue for
the People's candidate. "It is too true," replied
the other, "the Richnund Enquirer gives it up, and
don't know but wo might as well give up all
hopes now, even in Missouri, for the Virginia
election will be sure lo influence our friend.-', espe
cially the luketrarm; and you know we have a greai

MAY DAY CELEfillATloM, AT THE MONTI
CELLO MAIjK AfflJ KK.MAI.E SEMINAKY,
may i, mcr.
We had the pleasure of witnessing the exercises
on this occasion. The day was one of sunshine, after
a season of rainy weather, as though smiles rested on
the first annual rites of Flora ever per formed in this
part of rho lar west. The students had creeled a
large May pole, ornamented with vtrdure and flowen
nd placed on it the star-spangled banner, surmounted
villi the mono, "Ko tiiios," in gilt letieri.
Tho two depirtinenta nut at 1 1 o'clock M , ml tho'

read dissertations on the question, "Should the right
of suffrage be extended to females?" At 3 o'clock,
P. M. the male students discussed tin question, Were
the whites justifiable in exterminating the Indian
from the country?" The dissertations and tht speech-
ea, particularly the former, excited a great tidal of
interest.
At four o'clock , P. M. came on the particular ob
ject of the day the coronation of the May Quern.
This ceremony is very common in the eastern States,
and is performed in compliment to the genius of the
flowery spring. It fa a new thine anions us, nnd as
the poetical pieces were prepared original for tho oc

The young ladies were In uniform iula drt'lcc
with blue badgca; tli proccsasiuii inarched to the i
music of "Hail Columbia;" the Qiiecn, followed bj
her train, passed under three wrcaihtd arches nnd i
ascended a Ilora throne, under the llnir. Preceding
her went ladv Hope, scattrrinz (lowers before her and
repenting ihe lines,
Lady Hope, the pathway y.rews,
And makes life flowery as she goes.
The young ladies, after passing under the arches,
formed themselves into a circle round the throne, and
tho Froclaimir thus addiessed Ihcin
Maidens fair, behold your Queen !
Lo, she moves in regal inicnj
Prouder in a freeman's birlh,
Than any other claim on earth;
Happier, where our star flag wave'-,
Than Cleopatria with her slaves;
Fairer than Victoria,
See your Queen elect of May.
For her noble heart and soul;
For the love she hears us all;
For her worth, we homage pay.
And proclaim her, Queen of May.
The Cronncr then addressed the Queen, placing
on her head the crown of flowers
Huil ! only Sovereign Whom we own,
Accept from loyal hand? the crown.
Now malurest Spring has come,
Now the flowers are in their bloom.
Now the verdure decks Ihe ground,
Ncv the birds their inatos have found.
Now wo hold our festival,
And wo crown thee Qupcn of all.
The Queen made tho following; speech U her nc-.v
subjects:--
Maidons lair, my thanks receive
For t'.ic honors which you give.
The sceptre, crown ami rf'gul st'itc,
Shall never make yonr Queen forget.
Thut she is placed here by your will
To make you happier--happier still.
Life at most is but a day:
I would it might be fair as May.
The Speaker then congratulated the Queen:
Beauteous Queen of May, thy reign
is over lull, and over plain,
As universal as the Spring,
I that visits every joyous thing.
May is the bridal season given,
To the earth, by bouuteous Heaven;
Our thankful hearts receive the boon,
And thus begin our honey-moon.
The smiling sun has wed the earth,
And all is festival and mirth.
The hills aro altars from which rise
Flowery incense to the skies;
And every green and verdant place
Jhnquets the animated race;
The trees, wave branches in the air;
Tho birds ore flitting every where;
The winds are nature's orchestra;
And the brooks are dancing guy.
O ! what a happy festival,
Fair Queen of May, is this to all.
Afterwards they all sunj the following ong to
the tunu of "Washington's March" the voices
resting at the end of each stanza, while the inlru
menfal music perl'urincd the intervals:
SONG.
From the fields of the South and the Innd of ihe rose.
here the mil tver shines and the orang" tree irrows,
Comes the health of tho Spring and the spirit of May,
I And drives the bleak spirit of Winter away
The storm, nnd the jnow, nnd ihe ice have all ec,
And imttirc azjnin has revived tram the dr.id;
And the friu;iMiice of Kdoi is borne on the brce-',
And the voice of tho turtle, and the hum of i!:c occ s.
Out where :? the Innd of perennial Spring ,
That preserves in us beiiuiv and youth every thin;;
I'll s eye hrfih not seen it , yet suli it shall be
Reserved for the yVod a:nl Uic pious to see.
The coronation ceremony was p-tcceeded by a fine
collation, which i he students had prepared for their;
friends. And perhaps a more agreeable and rational
holy-day w as never enjoyed among us. In coucli's'on
Cnpt.Joys of Louisville, ICy.. made a short, unpre
meditated, but impressive address. He maintained
the opi nion, that the Monficidlo rial" and female S ui-
j tnary, wouid not sutler in cotne-nrisoii with similar
