" The hotter the War, the sooner the Peace."
'" --' nitrnose announced in our last,
and which our cotcmpomrics nave so courteously
anticipated as the labor of a "mountain" and the
production of a '-mouse." Fur this we have two
reasons: One of them is, that we find the public
scrutiny and thcpublic judgment has already antici
pated the view wo had ourselves taken, and pro
nounced the verdict suggested by the argument as
deduced from the premises. Another is, that we
thnll probably have need for all the space we can
devote editorially, in paying our respects to such
branches of the "afl'uir" as continue to receive elu
cidation through the columns of the Democrat.
The public will bear us witness that it is not our
fualt, if, in reluctantly coming to the defence of
the right, we carry the war into Africa. We de
sired that the matter might end with and between
the original and proper parties themselccs but
since our motives have nut only been unreciproca
ted, but construed into lameness and since our
silence, 10 far from being commended and copied
after, has been made the basis of reiterated and
multiform aspersions of our friendwe propose
to see who will note first object to the "place," cho
en by our adversaries, for the settlement of an
"affair" which they have declined to adjust beyond
the precincts of their own dunghill.

'Did Clark really invite Jackson to go out of
the State with him?"
"He did. Read Leonard's note to Scolt."
' Wouldn't Jackson go?"
"He would not. Kead Scott s reply to Leon
"Then I pronounce him a d d dunghill!"
The foregoing is the substanceour corres
pondent thinks the very words of a colloquy
between two old Andreto Jackson men, in re.f-
erence to the recent "affair" between Gen. John
B. Clark and Claiborne F. Jackson, Esq. One
of tliem the one who spoke first and last is
"an old shot," familiar with the code to which
the gentlemen had submitted themselves, and
"unhesitatingly delivered 'the law to be, that it

gret that our columns aro so crowded as to com
pel us to thus substitute a few sentences in lieu of
several pages scarcely less striking and pungen'
than the foregoing extracts. If our correspon-
dent thinks as justly, and writes as fluently on
other subjects as on this, he has our welcome and I
our thanks for the use of our columns now and
CROWING OF "A DUNGHILL."
Read the last Democrat. The noise sounds as
liltlo like "Bloody Island" when incorporated in
the Editorial columns of the Democrat as it did
when dictating a disgraceful house yard fight, and
injuring impunity by the very meanness and im
possibility of its requirements. We do not com
plain that this, that and the other person are sev
erally allowed to vent their private spleen and
envy through the Editorial columus of the Demo
crat for that is none of our business. But we do
object against the further outrage of all decency,
and all modesty, in the liberty which is claimed
and submitted to, of not only abusing the gentle-
man who has been denied the customary courtesy
of a meeting beyond the point, at which "the State
of Miasouri" can send "Greeting," but of trump
cling ones own dread prowess in the same sen
True we know how to appreciate and sympa
thise the condition of Mr. Quesenberry. His
friend shows badly in the correspondence and all the
fiahline Dart of the "affair," and as it is but
natural that he should desire to ace himself tome-
how bravely mentioned in print we would go as far
to indulge him as we could do in deference to the
public taste albeit our friend made a finishing of
. his work as he went. So fur as the relative dispo
n ion of the parties to meet each other may be a
matter of public consideration, Gen. Clark has not
estftyed a line beyond his first card and the corres
pondenee. It is certainly true, moreover, that Mr.
Jackson may write Communications and Editorials
until deoms-day but that these can never expunge
or altef the last notes of Leonard and Scott. It is
to them,' snd them only, that the people of all par
ties will refer to discover and determine who has
the honor of wearing "the white plume" except on
his own unmolested dunghill. Propriety apart.
therefore wo might well forego, as we have fore-
cone, and as oat colemporaries of the Stockholder
have foregone, a single syllable in behalf of our
friend. He put up his gaps as he went along, and
we are sure that he would scorn to use our edi
torial pen to make himself appear larger after the
fin than he showed himself in it. We will,
therefore, but congratulate our politicul friends,
that, however they may disagree concerning the
propriety, or tne wanvoi propriety, mu ivum
which was adopted by tlm. citizen whom they so
lately honored with their uft'rages, he lias bornr

"BtTrKit lei it be:" General Clark's effort in
the last Times to excuse or palliate his fraudulent
conduct in reference to the "two sets of tickets,'' on
ly makes the matter worse. Lvery body under-
stnnds hit motive for wanting two sets of tickets
printed, and 'tis useless tor him to try to otter any
thing in palliation. Democrat of Wednesday.
Yes: Every man who is honest anJ honorable
himself "understands his motive" precisely as
Gen. Clark's letter itself explained it, and ns lie
has further amplified it in his card to the public
on the 1 9th inst. None but the tool of a bein
himself degraded to the point of saying one thing
(which the ballot-box proved true) and meaning
anothcr-.ve repeat that such beings only are found
capablo, in any party, of attempting to fulsify the
meaning and purpose of as plain, rational and
honorable a suggestion as was ever contained in
so many woids, or predicated on so plain and
proven a coucurrcnce of facts.
By the same process, and by the same men,
General Harrison has been proven a federalist
and an abolitionist, by the very speeches and the
very totes he hod made and given in opposition to
the doctrines of the one and the purposes of the
other! Keep on "Cusli:" He who was born foi

FEDERAL OPERATIONS IN MISSOURI.
The following is an extract taken from a letter
recently received by a gentleman of high respec
lability, in Mercer county, which was written by
a gentleman now in Missouri, and who has been
a member of the Stale Senate of Indiana, which
clearly shows the manoeuvres of the federal whigs
in that portion of the Union. It is also accom
panied with corroborating; circumstances given
in the public journals of tho State of Missouri.
"Fhanklin Mo., July 1st. 1840.
'Dear Sir: I will inform you that the feder
al whics have iust eone throuuh with all the mo
tions of a trtumpn by celebrating Quocn Victoria's
birth day which was the loth June, in which they
spent three days in the most billingsgate abuse of
the President, and blackguarding all the officers
under his administration. The nights were spent
in revelling and damnable debauchery, and to
make a fine display of their abolition principles
they imported abolitionists from Illinois, one by
the namo of Robins, whose name was changed
to that of Judge Robinson of Kentucky, and in
troduced to the humbug meeting as such. Mr.
Webster (alias Rodney,) followed this Judge
Robinson, both of whom are known as federalists
and company actors of Lovejoy the celebrated
abolitionist. The next actor was a free negro by
the name of Peet, who addressed this august body
of disorganizes and office seekers; and an old
Englishman who was present observed that it was
lime the American people were awake to a sense
of their duty, when the poor uninformed blacks
had to warn them of the necessity of a change in
their affairs. You will find the most of their pro
ceedings in two papers which I send you.
This State is safe for the administration.

priely" "the editors of the Times were raised,"
but they "have conformed" most strictly to pro

You shall have enough of it. The honorable
public exhoncration of General Clark, already
awarded by the public shall not suffice. It shall
be "kept before the public," that the Cashier of
the Democratic Branch Bank at Fayette, and a
Democratic. Senator from Howard county, some
how or other, got possession of a private letter,
which was stolen from tho hat of a whig can
didate for the Legislature while he was addressing
public assembly, and that instead of returning
to that gentleman they LTJ-OPENED IT,
DO-READ IT, called a caucus of "ihe party"
at the DjBANK, who not only approved the
gross dishonor of these public officers, but coun
selled the perpetuation of the original theft by
the further violation of all remaining honor, as
hewn in the publication and retention of this
rivate letter! It shall be kept before the nub-
c that it may be seen and known to what

possible justice, we again copy his letter to Col.

Sir Your letter of the 14th inst. in relation
to Gen Clark's letter addressed to you from Ver
sailles, on the 9th July last, ha3 been received.
That letter was found by nie wuh some other
papers, in my house, some two weens alter tne
close of our late election. Whether it fell in
my possession by an exchange of saddle-bags, or
was placed in my own saddle bags, by mistake,
s a matter that 1 do not know, and cannot de'
tcrminc. Ihe saddle-bags which I was using at
the lime was borrowed, and 1 am not inlorined
sufficiently to determine more explicitly, how
this letter came into my possesion, than as above
That letter is still in the possession of the edi-

leaving with the editor, a tcrwien statement, ac
knowledging its authenticity.

I will publish the letter. Clark is in the
church, and perhaps wont call for the author. If
he does, "Cush" (d n his church notions) shall
refuse the name except on a pledge to fight a duel
This, Clark will of course decline, for he knows it
would injure him to be turned out of the church
But if he should lay the church aside until he re
dresses his honor, and finally should he even chal
lengeme, lean bluff him by taking him with my
hunting rifle before he has a minute to get such a
one and practice. He could'nt hit the Bank 70
yards, off-hand, in throe seconds to I'm safe,
even if he should be fool enough to involve himself
and his friends, right in the sight and hearing of

mouth of the Missouri about 0 o'clock tit night.
The Fayette was then astern of the Glaucus nboul
fifty yards. Just flt a point of the river, the Glau
cus met the steam boal Pike, doscendin; from Ga
lena. They passed ench other in safety, snd Hie
Pike, not discovering the Fayette, continued on her
direct couri-e. The pilot of tho Fayette now, for
the first time, saw the descending boat, under full
headway, coming down upon them. He rung the
engine bell, and the engineer had changed the op
erulion of the machinery so as to bnck the boat.
But it was too lato to avoid a collision. The Pike
was struck forward of the wheel-houe, and beinp
a sirall boat, with 00 pigs of lead on board, she
went down almost immediately. She was full ol
passengers, in the enhin and on deck, having taken
from the Agnes, aground above, but which got orl
and reached here early on Saturday, a large num
ber of passengers. A scene of indescribable an
guish and dismay presented itself. Many ver'
