With your permission, Mr. Clninnnn, I will
now ngiin conduct you to the first story of the
palace, where we shall enter the great 'C urt Ban
quoting Room,' in which I can promise you a
sight that will be "good for soro eyes." It is a
genuine locofoco's dinner tablo sot out, arranged
in order, and duly prepared to receive the Court
guests. In the first place, however, 1 must in
lorm you, that this table is not provided with those
old and unfashionable dis ies, "hog and hominy
"fried meat' and gravy," "schnilz, knep, and sour
croul, with a mug ol 'hard cider. INo, sir,
no. - All these substantial prepuralions are looked
upon by -'ourmands, French cooks, and locofoco
Presidents, as exceedingly vulgar, and fit only to
pet before "Bank Whigs," and men (as the Globe
eloquently expresses it) "who adopt the maxims
and principles of cobblers and tinkers." But
the true orthodox, democratic viands, with which
a genuine locofoco furnishes his dinner table, con
sist in massive gold plate and French sterling sil
ver services, blue and gold French tambours,
rompotieis feet, stands for bonbons, with three
stages, gilded French plateaus, garnished with
mirrors and gulands, and gaudy artificial
fljwers. During tho apostolic days, the saints
were commanded to "eat what .was sot before
them, asking no questions" but if any good
Christian man should, by mistake, find his way
to a table tlios furnished, and should incline to
obey the precept according to its letter, he would
certainly have hard fare of it. lis might pethups
sustain famising humanity by browsingon artificial
lhwers and wreaths, or peradventure, by touching
with the toneue the saccharine compotiers and
bonbons, somewhat after tho manner of the very
commendable usage said to have prevailed at an
early day among the inhabitants of Kinderhook,
of suspending by a cord a large lump of sugar
immediately over the centre of the table, so that
it might swing round to the guests alternately.
Albeit, sir, there is no food for the palate placed
upon this locofoco's table, there is a frnst of gold
for the eye, that would have satiated King Midus
himself. And although the wood of several large
forests was not cut down to dress the victuals for
this Tamerlane banquet, yet it required the enor
mous sum of ELEVEN THOUSAND ONE
HUNDRED AND NINETY-ONE DOL
LARS AND TH1RTY.TW0 CENTS OF
THE PEOPLE'S CASH TO BUY THE TA
You seem amaze I, Mr. chairman. Do not
believe that I speak not the "woids of truth and
soberness." I have now in my hands, sir, the
"'official vouchers," which show the expenditure
of every dollar of that large sum, and that the
whole amount thereof, with the exception of $1,.
126, was expended since the days of the plain,
frugal, economical, republican, retrenching refor
mation of Jackson and Van Buren commenced.
And I here, in my place, demand, in the name of
my constituents, that the Committee on the Ex
penditures on the Public Buildings make a report
to this House, and communicate copies, not only
of the vouchers on this subject, but all the vouch.
ers in relation to expenditures for the President's
house, lurniture and grounds, that they may be
nil spread before the People in an "official form."
This everlasting leakage from tho People's strong
box must be stenched.
Bui 1 will exhibit to the committee the various
hi Is which form the aggregate of 811,191 3J for
the table service of the democratic President.
I will, in the first place, biing to the notice of
the committee the bill for the rrench sterling
SILVER PLATE Olid GILT DESSERT SET, bought from
a Russia nobleman, le M. le General Bar.
oh de Tuyll, resident Minister of his Majesty
the Emperor of Russia at Lisbon, for the sum of
four thousand three hundred and eight dollars and
eighty two cents.
The gilt dessert set is composed of table spoons,
sweet-meat spoons, lea or colToe spoons, knives,
forks, fltc. ozc. one hundred and forty pieces.
Tho following receipts are endorsed on the bill
for the silver plate mid service:
"Received, June 29, 1833, four thousand three
hundred and eight dollars eighty two cents, beim
ill full fur the within snvico of plate.
GEO. W. SOUTH."
"I oertify that I have received into the Presi.
dent' House all the articles contained in the
within service, and they are intended for the use
of the President's House.
'Washington, July 1, 1833."
It may be proper to remark that punr. gold is
generally considered too ductile and soft to man
ufacture into knives, forks, and other utensils,
which require some degree of firmness or want of
pliability. Tho gilt or gold service, therefore,
used in the palaces of kings and at the ensiles of
wealthy noblemen in Europe, is composed ol a
slight substratum of silver, thickly plated or over
laid with pure gold. And hence, I presume, the
gilt service of tho President was manufactured
after the same manner. No honest democrat,
however, by taking up the various articles of
which it consists, would be led to doubt a moment
that they sre made ol guld, without any alloy
They may be pure goi l, though I am inclined to
believe otherwise, inasmuch ns they were procured
from one of the great noble of the Rusiiun em
Mr. Chairman, in my opinion, it is time the
People of the United States thould know that
their money goes to buy for their pluiuhard-handed
democratic President, knives, lurks, and spoons
of gold, that he aiay dine in the atyle of tho Mon.
arch of Europe. (Mr. Woddy Thompson- No

I will, in the next plate, call the attention of
the committee to the bill for the splendid French
China for dinner serviie, and the elegant dessert
set of blue and gold, with eagle; all iuArs to oh-
per in france, and imported by lewis Veron &
Co., celebaated dealers in Fancy China, etc. Fhil.
The Set of French China for dinner service has
four hundred and forty pieces, .oonsistins of olive
boats, octagon salad bowls, pickle shells, long
nsn oisnes, ore. etc., end cost one thousand dol
The Dessert Set, blue and gold, with eagle,
composed ol lour hundred and twelve pieces, in.
eluding six stands for Bonbons, with three stages;
eight tambours, with three stasres; twelve Sweet

leel; six large r ruit Xiuskels, on leet: four Ice.
Cream Vases and Covers, with inside How!.; five

cost one thousand five hundred dollars.
Mr. Chairman, don't you think that one of your
plain republican "backers' would feel -'kinder
queer like" to bo pi need at tho President's table,
before these democratic "Tambours with . three
stages, and "Compotiers on feet.'" Why, sir, he
would almost imagine that he had suddenly been
transported to the sallc a festin cn maison royah
o'' Lou;s Philippe, King of tho Faench. 1 have
no doubt that some of my constituents would much
rather face the gi'ily bear on the Appalachian
mountains, that sit down before these 'Tambours
with three siages,' and 'Compotiers on feet,' for
five consecutive hours the period usually requir.
ed by ivmgs and democratic fiesidenls to masti
cate a state dinner
The next price of democratic 'furniture' on
the President's table, to which I would invite your
very particular attention, is the 'kourlrout or
bronze gilded Plateau, a large ornamented or pic
tured tray, winch stands on the centre ol the table.
The Plateau, with the richly gilded baskets, tri
pods, and Etruscan vases which accompany it,
cost in Paris 6,000 francs, or 1,125; and is the
oulv piece of table 'furniture which has not been
purchased sinco the democratic days of retrench.

of seven pail., measures thirteen feet six inches

and gilded, with wreaths of fm'ls and vines; and
with figures representing Bacchus and the R.ic.

Accompanying the Plateau are two Etruscan vas.

richly-gilded tripods, copied fiom antique pat.
terns; also, three baskets, richly gilded, each with
three figures upon a round stand, embellished with
ivy and lyre-formed leaves, for six lights each, or
Anniented with flowers.
It does appear to me, sir, that the Plateau, with
its fine mirrors, in which the honest, hard-handed
locofoco democrats can look at themselves, almost
every moment during the formal progress of a
court banquet, would be regarded even by a bank
whig as a pretty (ormidablo article of dinner fur
niture. Having disposed of the pictured tray, Mr.
Chairman, I will direct your attention for a few
minutes to the magnificient set of Table Glass,
contained in three several bills, The first bill is
for Champaigne Glasses, Clarets, Gobleis, Cor
dials. Waller Bottles, &c, bought from Messrs.

Mr. Chairman, these three bills for table
glass. make, together, the clever sum of 62 GUG 50
an amount, I should suppose, sufficiently large
to purchase tho most democratic sot of table' glass
in America. What, sir, will the honest locofocos

cash in foreign Fanny Kctnble geeeu finger cvps,

I will now, sir, present you with a receipt for

to the true character of his democracy: .

THE' A LLEG ATION O F G EN E R A C 11 A R'
BISON SUPPORTING THE' ALIEN SE
fDITlON LAWS EXAMINED AS A L
SO THE' CHARGE OF FEDERALISM,
-'AS MADE BY AMOS KENDALL.-
As the Van Buren party have thought proper
to charge General Hairison as the advocate, and
and supporter of the alien and sedition laws, I
have deliberately examined the facts connoctcd
with the truth of the allegation, and wilt biiefly
present them in this communication. -
It is no doubt within the recollection or all who
are conversant with the history of Gen. Harrison's
life, that ho entered Congress in 1798, as the dele
gate from the northwestern territory. During this
session the celebrated alien and sedition laws were
adopted. As a delegate he had no agency what
ever in the adoption the delegate has no voice
in Congress in the enactment of laws. How far
his feelings were favorable to the subject has been
unequivocally expressed by him on various occa
sions: he has explicitly denied the charge, in every
shape and fom. But this clmrge is predicated on
the testimony of John Randolph, of Roanoke.
When ho stated this matter to the Senate, Gen.
Harrison rose in his seat and repudiated it, in the
most positive and unqualified terms. It is true,
that he admitted, (hut he approved of the course
of John Adam's administration, in relation to our
external affairs with France. That the system ol
policy, then pursued by the elder Adams met his
approbation. Amos Kendall, in a roecrit number
of the Extra Globe, has endeavored I deduce
from this nppiobotion of a particular measure of
the executive, his inclination to support all of the
systems of policy recommended by Mr. Adam.
Before I examine the fuels connected with the
alien and sedition law, let me point out the course
pursued Mr. Adams in relation lo tho adjustment
of out foreign affairs. In the commencement, 1
will remark, that as far back as 1793 and '94,
France assumed an attitude towards this govern
ment totally at war with the pacific policy of this
country. 1 he policy was strictly military. At
this time she was eng.iged in all of the stiuggles
which then convulsed Europe. Her means and
resources were considerably exhausted. Looking
around, among the foreign powers of the globe,
for assistance, sho peremptorily demanded aid of
the government of the United Slates. General
Washington, then at the head of this government,
repudiated the proposition. He contended, that
we should stand aloof from the convulsions of
Europe. France demanded a tribute a sum of
money this was also denied. Conceiving her
self injured by this refusal, she seized and captur.
ed our commerce, and fitted out ships of war in
our harbors. These measure's received from Gen.
Washington a rebuke, which lashed the whole
country into the highest conceivable excitement.
Before these disturbing and exciting quesiions
were adjusted, General Washington retired from
the Presidency. Mr. John Adams succeeded him,
and the duly of settling these perplexing difficul
ties devolved upon him. To accomplish this ob.
ject, it required gieat prudence enlarged expe
rience, and consummate wisdom. He called to
his aid the purest patriots of the land. It is a fact
well established that as soon as he was inagura.
lad, he consulted Mr. Jefferson, as regards ihe
measure to be pursued in the settlement of our
foreign affairs. It is also a lact well established,
that he proposed to Mr. Madison, the mission to
France. This proposition he declined, The coun
try was then divided into three parties. There
was one party that supported Mr. Adams, in favor
of negotiation. This was composed of Marshall,
Bayard, Governeur Morris, John Jay, Patrick
Henry, and others. The other party were for de
claring war against France. This consisted of
Alexander amilton, Pickering and others; and
lastly, there was a party in favor of sustaining
Franco and rendering her the assistonce required.
This parly was composed of Jefferson, Giles,
Monroe, enable, Lary JNicholasand other distin
guished members of the republican parly. Mr.
Adams contended in opposition to the views of
the second parly, that if war was declared, our
commerce would be crippled and greally dimin
ished that our revenues were too small to en.
counter such a slate of hostilities, and that he be
lieved negotiation wculd accomplish every thine
sought lo be obtained from France, in cousidera.
lion of the violation of treaty stipulations that
reclamations of property might be obtained mote
easily and indemnities granted by the French
government more willingly. As regards tho views
entertained by Mr. Jefferson and others, he
thought them highly impolitic and unwise and
establishing a dangerous precedent. He felt grate
ful to France for the timely aid rendered ns in
achieving our independence; but he ihoueht it un
wise and inimical to the peace and tranquility of
the nation to entangle ourselves in ihe meshes of
foreign wars and hostilities. He proposed the
policy of negotiation. He deputed Marshall,
Vansmurray, and Gerry lo France, to adjust all
matters in controversy between' the two govern,
ments. The sequel is well known a treaty was
agreed upon, and the apprehensions of the peo.
pie in relation to a war were totally dispelled.
It is a fact not to be disputed, that Gen. Harrison
approved of the pacific policy that terminated so
gloriously to the suinl, political and commercial
interests of the two nations. It is known full
well, that Gen. Washington approbated ihe course
of policy thus pursued by Adams, because tho ad.
ministration was acting upon the policy which
had originated in his cabinet, and ho was merely
carrying out his views in the settlement of our
But I will show by subsequent events, that Mr.
Jefferson pursued a similar policy when ho came
to tho executive chair. Difficulties t.cie again re
newer! by France, in our iutcrcomso. The trca.
ty had secured to us the right of deposito in New
Uileans lor our western productions. The inten
dant of that city, acting in obedience to the con
stituted authorities of the French government, de
nied to us the right thus guaranteed by the treaty.
We remonstrated wc appealed to the French
government for a redress of grievances. But still
she refused to recede fiom the grounds taken
our commerce flouting upon the ocean was seized
and captured by French crui.ers our rights were
violated our remonstrances disregarded. The
Federal parly urge! upon Mr. Jefferson, the noli.
ry of declaring wor the propriety of enforcing
me pcriormance oi me stipulations entered in the
treaty negotiated by E. Gerry. Mr. Jefferson
proposed the course of negotiation: he opposed
the views of the Federal party, and contended,
that eveiy tiling might be adjusted upon amicable
and honorable terms, more satisfactorily by nego
tiation, than resorting to the terrible right of war.
Ho announced to the world his determination, to
hold llio government -aloof from the wars ol
Europe. If he h.id adopted lliu viows of the Fed
ernl party, and 'unclasped the garment of peace'
if J may uso the words of Homer, we should have
been indirectly aiding ihe enemies of France.
Thus you willperceive, thct the views entertain,
ed by General Ilarrison, are precisely of the s.une
chorai'tcr as regards the act on of the Government
in 1798 and '99, in the adjustment of our rela
tions with F finer, as thrn entertained and prac.
ti'rd upon by Mr. Jrffcrvjn in 1 803 1, when
I e piesided ovrr ihe tk stinics of ..this republic
On this question, a great diversity of oninion tier
vaded all ranks and- all' parties.). Indeed mart
statesmen of the most enlightened minds, and
most devoted patriotism, differed freely and hon.
estly rulativ to lh action of the government.
So much for General Hariison'a views in relation
to our concerns "with France. He then agreed
with Washington, Henry, Marshall. Morris, and
John Jay; and ho had the patriotic pleasure to
witness moso wuo men denounced llio policy
which Ihnt distinguished patriot approved and sup
portedafterwards acknowledge and advocate
the same doctrines. If tho approval . by Gen.
Harrison of the administration of Mr. Adams as
records the settlement of our difficulties with
Franc?, makes him supporter of all the measuers
recommended by that officer, why is il that the
same sentiment of opposition entertained bv
Washington, Henry, Jay, and others, should not
make them also the supporters of all the obonox
ious mcasucis of the elder Adams?
I wi'.l now turn to the alien and sedition law

TO THE PATRONS OF THE BOON'S LICK
The present number closes my connection with
ihe Boon's Lick Times. As expressed in my open
ing address, it was my intention and desire to lo
cate myself permanently in this community, and
on no other consideration but in more effectually
subserving the interest of the great and glorious
cause in which I have devoted what little of talent
and eurrgy I possess, and at the same time con
sulting my individual interest, could I have been
induced to lake the course thus suddenly resolved
upon. The liberality and generous confidence of
tny patrons and friends would justly forbida gratu
itous withdrawal. Pecuniary interest, or a desire
to disconnect myself with this paper, unaccompan
ied with higher and more substantial reasons would
be reprehensible in me and ungenerous and unjust
to you. It is therefore, with feelings of great sat
isfaction, that IJum enabled to announce a transfer to
the hands of able and reliable conductors. James
R. Benson &, Clark H. Gkeen, are the purchasers,
and, under their control'and guidance, the Times,
henceforward, will be conducted. With an abiding
confidence in their ability, their good reputation
for honesty and uprightness of character, I cheer
fully yield them my post, ttnd with a sincere re
gard for their prosperity and success, recommend
them to yeur encouragement patronage and regard.
Although my stay with you has been very short,
and during an important and exciting political con
lest, my feelings are strongly allied with yours,
and with your success 1 feel the deepest interest.
It is a gratifying consolution, to know that, although
the Whigs are still in a minority, yet, in this
county particularly, nut in a hopeless one that
the Whig strength has almost daily, for the last
few months, augmented, and that the Republicans
the true Jell'ersonian Republicans, have more cause
for gratuialion, in the prospects before them, tha u
ever teforo. Whether the influence of my labors,
have conduced to that result, is a matter to be con
sidered by you your efforts in connection with
those of your humble servant huve produced a
most glorious achievement in the good cause we
are engaged, and success triumphant success,
can only be gained and maintained by that unity
of action, and perseverance, which has distin
guished the conduct and course of tho Whigs dur
ing the late campaign. That the battle is an unfair
oue the oflice-holders, Uie Bank, and the govern
ment patrouaga arrayed against you wielding a
most powerful and almost uncontrulablc influence
is an undisputed fact; still we have undeniable
and incontrovertible proof, in the glorious result at
our August election, that with llio same energy,
the same independence and the same honesty of
purpose which characterized the course of the
Whigs in that strife relying upon the intelligence
and virtue ot the people, appealing to the undeb
srANuiNo and season of all to the history as your
ttjgis, against the fulminated a'juse and ungenerous
and basely fulse assertions of your opponents you
can and must triumph, and that speedily. Termit
mo to urge, in tlid luuguuga of Hut good and pa
Iriotic motto, "Keep the fag flying, DIE but
JSEVEK SURRENDER." C C. CADY
Fayette, Sept. 5th. 1840.
TO THE PATRONS OF THE TIMES.
it win lie seen .Ironi an announcement in this
day's paper that the undersigned have become its
proprietors and publishers. Being practical prin
ters, the mechanical department tliull ustain no
detriment by the changu. Indeed, we have alruady
laiien sieps 10 improve it. Ul our capacity and re
liances lo sustain its refutation jn other respects
tune win speaK. its political purposes will re
main as heretofore, and will Le sought and enforced
in the same fuir and candid spirit hy the same
manly and honorable means. Comparatively strang
ers in the community, although residing here for
several months, wo cun better hope to commend
ourselves by acr thun wards by furnishing a good
paper rather iHn promising one. Until, ,hen, our
pretensions to tho favor of our political frinmls ,

A WHIG BARBECUE IN f.XX II.N AN,
j ore requested to slate tint ii Whig B-irbscuo
id II be giyoirat Whlto. Hall,' Buchanan County,
the.fifteenih of' this month. r Preparations aro mak
ing lo accommodate flvt thousand persons. This
is art excellent movement, atd we hope Ihe Whip"
in the adjoining counties will join their friends lu
this re tio to county', on the occasion. .All (hs pro
pie in Buchanan waul is fair play a, p'ain and
fair exposition of the principles of Gen. Harrison
mid Van Riiren, and the B-mton-ridden and wofully
deceived people of even that county will do their
duty and act independently. ' i
,"TIIEY GIVE IT UPl" , t
Sinco the returns have come in from North Cam
linn, even the most rabid Locos refuse to discount
the best Whig paper, mado payable when. Van
Buren is re-elected. Wo lire opposed to belting on
elections hut this sign is an unerring one and we
therefore put it on record as evidence that "it is
given up" that "old Tip," the "Federal, abolitiuu
candidate" has won the race. ' ' :
(j3What a sight of Horses the Harrison men .
will have to sell or lend after the election. As to
clothes, they will' not have to buy any until a na
tional Bunk has reduced the exchanges and thus
reduced the price of goods but even if they hava
to buy some, they will not feel it out of the "pile.'
ihcy will pocket in virtus of their own good judg-,
ment, and their unshaken reliance on the iutelli
jencs and integrity of the people.
En passant ye would not taku the cursing
which will be lavished on the Democrat, and other
"sources of correct information;" foh the likeliest
negro that ever voted under tho constitution that
Van Buren made in New York. '.
THE WAY THE PE8PLE TELL IT.
Mr. Van Buren has been inordinately lauded for
the candour and fairness with which he answered
the letters of the Shockoe Springs Committee of
Noh Carolina in '33, and of a Mr. Junius Aimis,
of the same State,' in '30 and General Harrison
has been as inordinately calumniated for declining
to write electioneering letters at the whim or in
stance of every cross road committee man in the
country. . Lo ! the commentary of the People of
North Carolina !
For Morehead (Harrison) ' 36,281 TOtcs.
For Saunders (Van Buren) 28,131 votes.
It is thus seen that the People of the "old North
State" coincided in the opinion of General Harrison,
that the past conduct, was better than the present
promises, of any candidate Right !
GENERAL OGLE'S GREAT SPEECH.
We continue the "Inventory" which this Public
Administrator has taken of the gewgaws and finery
which have been introduced into the Democratic(!)
palace at Washington.' The people who read it
will no longer wonder at the sneer of the Treasury
Clerk respecting the "Log Cabin" of the Farmer
of Ohio while the elections which are pouring in
upon us from every direction evince the relative
estimation in which the real democracy hold the
apes and echos of effeminate royally at Washing
ton, in contrast with lire plain minded, and old fash
ioned republican at North Bend.
A HUGE WATERMELLON.
The Editors in St. Louis talk and make a great
flourish sbout the big Wat6rmellons that are
raised near that city ; and one of thern, the Gaz
ette man we believe, was boasting of the one that
was sent him, which weighed 38 lbs. Why, en-
tlemen, your mellonsare mere nut shells to some
that are raised at Hazel Ridge, in this county, on
Capt. Cleveland's plantation. We were up there
tlie other day and tho Captain, or rather two of his
stoutest negro men, rolled into hi yard a mellon
that woulo feed ten as hungry dogs even as you are
for a week. Tho weight of it is not remembered
now, but we recollect that fifteen persons were
unable to finish It at one meal, and ice were amons;
SALT RIVER HERALD.
In another column will be found a prospectus for
a Whig paper in Paris, Mo. Monroe county being
decidedly Whig, as also some of the adjoining
counties, we should suppose, with proper exertions
on the part of the Whigs, a press could be well
sustained there. It cannot, however, without the
united exertions of all the Whigs in that section.
There is a Loco Foco concern there which manages
to live by the support of a minority, which is very
good evidence that a paper advocating the princi
ples of the mojority, could, or ought to be sustainod.
The Whigs however, in that section are the only
judges in regard to to the practicability of the es
lablishment of a press, and it rests with them
whether or not the enterprise succeeds. They
must show their desire by actsnot promises.
