Democrat of Wednesday.
Yes: The Editors of the Times were rnised in
a school of propriety fundamentally different from
that of the Democrat, or have better conformed to
its inculcations. We had been taught to believe
that, when gentlemen had expressly taken a matter
out of the newspapers, and had thereby assumed to
settle it themselves, self-respect and common fair
ness alike conspired to dictate editorial silence.
We so actod but our valiant cotempornry was not
thus to be kept eut of a fight in which (if ho is to
be believed himself.) our friend General Clark had
been already disgraced, damned and ruined by the
Cashier of the Fayette Eranch Bank! How brave !
magnanimous 1 and chivalric ! is tho man who, al
tho' ho had originally said more against Gen.
C. than his correspondent had, was not deemed of
sufficient importance, one way or the other, for any
one to think of recognizing him in the fray, at ell.

Uuu,.n, uiose acquainted in the counties named,
and with the particular nature of the Gubernatorial

the corner-stone of a charge which I deemed to ef-
tecl my honor and the intelligence of my fellow
citizens in those counties.
In explanation, I need only inform you that, on
my visit to those counties iu the spring, and in all
my letters, I received assurances of tho desire and
intention ofmany of the supporters of Mr. Van Bu
ren, residing in the counties named, to vote for me
on personal account, and hence tho suggestion in
relation to tickets designed to ineot their "partiality
and friendship. I, nor the friends who gave me
the information upon which 1 based the surestion
of tickets to Col. Birch, were not mistaken, as I find
opun examination of the poll in the counties under
consideration, that I recoived upwards of one hun
dred and fifty votes over the average of tho other
popular and intelligent gentlemen associated with
me in the State canvass. In this view of the case.
therefore, (which is true) I did no more than sur
gesl the printing of tickets in such form as to meet
the determination of a large portion of tho voters
in those counties, which is now attempted to be
manutactureu into fraud by an assumption which
can rest upon no other foundation than a belief that
the citizens of five populous and respectable coun
ties could be cheated out of their suffrage by a pub
lie printed ticket. I rejoice that such is not, and
has not been, my estimateofthe public intelligence
of this country nor can I believe that any respoct
bio portion of my fellow-citizens can be induced to
ceusure ma in the least for my suggestions in th
letter above quoted.
In proof of the third chsrge contained in my
"Card" of the 10th, I confidently refer yon to
subsequent correspondence with Mr. Jackson, which
the editors of the "Times" Jiavo kindly agreed to
publish in another part of their paper. I call your
attention to that correspondence, and cannot doubt
the verdict which the citizens of my own State a ml
the public at large will pronounce.
JOHN B. CLARK
September 10th, 1610.
The election in this State took place on the 14th
st. A Governor, members of Congress anil
members of tho State Legislature are chosen.
Remember: Wo do not claim this State. She
gave her vote for Van Buren in '36, and is consid
cred one of Van's surest States next to New Wamp
lire, but we should not be surprised to seo even
Maine, like Virginia, Connecticut, Rhode Island,
Louisiana and North Carolina, standing by their
de, gloriously redeemed, reudy to defend her
country against both the army of office-holder
hieh is invading our rights, and the attacks ot
King Martin's Standing army of 21)0,000 men.
To the Public.
The following letters are all that are deemed nn
cessary to enable the public to render a verdict in
relation to their suliject matter. In a previous cor-
cspondence with tho Editor of the Democrat ho re
ferred mo to Mr. CLAiiioRN-n F. Jackson, and ho,
in turn, referred me to Judge Rawlins, of whom lie
had received the letter in question being tho same
hieh was incorporated in a communication which
ppeared in the Democrat of the 0th instant.
Sinistrous rumors, all contradictory, yet all orig
inating with the political friends of Judge R. have
doubtless prepared the local public, as it had me,
for the confused and unsatisfactory account hu has
at last rendered, respecting the uncertain manner
by which ho becamo possessed of property cer
tainly not his own confessedly without tho knowl
edge or consent of his neighbor yet legitimately
enough, in the estimation of a Senator of Howard
county, to "Bank upon," in the manner ho has
one. It is not my purpose, however, either to
state or to reconcile the various other accounts
which have from time to time been thus rendered
n deference to the public indignation tho letter
f Judgo Rawlins himself being ufliciui.tly tangi
ble to admit of positive contradiction, as tv every
thing it supposes respecting tho manner by which
the letter of General Clark passed from my posses
sion into his. ,
As one or tho other of the modes which are in
dicated and left to be supposed by Judgo R.iwlins
seem nevertheless indispensible (in his estimation)
to vindicate him in the lion orable p ossession of the
letter two weeks after the election, it may not be
wholly superfluous to superadd to the positive con
tradiction above tendered, a statement of notorious
facts wholly irroconcilahlo with either supposition
u the !ato county canvass I carried two some.
tiinej three pir uf saudle-bags always fa'l.
Judge Rawlins carried but one pair, and in that
pair, according to his own statements, made to sev
eral gentlemen, at different periods of the canvas,
ho carried nothing but the bound volumo of the
Journals of the two houses of the last general
assembly. It was impossible, thoroforo, that Judg
R. should mistake cvenapairofborrowedsid.il
bags, comparatively empty, and unbalanced, for
cither of mine which were full and well balanced
with books and documents. So much for an "ex
change" of saddlo-bags, which Judge R. does not
pretend that either of us ever mada ony discovery
of during the canvass. But suppose, in the utmost
stretch of charily for the character of a Senator, that
bo had taken a pair of mino home with him fron
ono of the public gatherings, and hod Jini discov
ered his mistake : What was tho modus operand
by which this particular letter got out of them-.
separated from its bundle and not found in hi
house" until about two weeks after the election
and tc.'icn discovered, found amongst some other
papers not if minp, of courso, for the honor of
the Judge wruld doubtless have required him t
return them before this time without adhering to
his technicality of "authentication before delivery
As, therefore, the public intelligence will revolt
against saddling the Judge with a pair of l.euvy
full-stuffed saddle bags, instead ot a pair of empty
ones, the only remaining supposition is whothcr
it was put into his saddlo-bags by "mistake." This
assumption is even more pitiful and ridiculous than
the other. I have now before me the original bun
dle of lottcts which I received from the 4th to the
17th of July, and which, (after that period, of
course) I took from my hat where they had accu
mulated, ond enveloped or wrapped up in one of
Col. Cooper's circulars (copies of which I carried
with mo.) Having done this merely to relieve
my head, they went into my saddle bags (in bundle)
for no other purpose, and were never unpacked
until sinco the appearance of the communication
in tho Democrat of the 9th inst. I charge, there
fore, with the most conscientious certainty, that
this letter was taken from hit hat, during my
public addresses, between tho 10th and COlh of July
last. By whom it was done, and how it found its
way into Judgo Rawlins' "house," two weeks af
ter, or two weeks brfure t'-.e election I leave such
portion of tho public as have not passed uponit
already to imagine and decide.
If, as a Senator from another District, I would
hesitate to sit with Owen Rawlins until he had
better explained the manner by which he became
possessed of a private letter, written in confidence
by ono of his neighbors to another, tho use ho has
made of it subsequent to his election would impel
me to move his instant expulsion. I know not how
fur, in the estimation of men fit to sit thcro, the laws
which govern the intercourse of gentlemen, and
distinguish refinement and civilization from bar
barism and piracy, may beheld to have been merged
in tho gradual uprooting of all moral and social
obligation, as inculcated and practised by tho tugli
priests from whom the Judgo has taken his politica,
complexion ; but I do know, that, up to this period'
I have not met a mas, of any rarty, in Howard
County, who his not spoken of his neglect to re
store the letter, unopened nnd unexamined (even
apart from tho base uses to which ho allowed it to
he perverted) as stamping his name with irradica
My duty to General Clark requires mo to add,
that the probability of his out-running the ques
tion in Macon and several other Western counties
ad been the subject of conversation ond corres
pondence before ho addressed mo this letter. So
far therefore, from regarding his suggestion, in
'relation to the framing of a printed ticket in such
manner as to meet the popular feeling in those
counties, as being dishonorable, or intended to
cheat or defraud any elector in his choice, I would
have most readily and cheerfully complied with his
suggestion but for the conviction that the party
violence which the contest had been made to as
sume since ho had been amongst them, had proba
bly wrought a change in their purposes and that
there wero but few who would vote for him who
were not Whigs. The result proved that I was
wrong ond I doubt not had I conformed to the re
quest of my friend his aggregate average vote
over the other Whig candidates would have been
considerably greater than it was. I ask permis
sion to share whatever of dishonor he may have
incurred by so natural a suggestion.
