Important Testimony on the Tal
ents and Character of Scott.
Sco tho first pago for an admirable speech by
tho Hon. John M. Clayton of Delaware. Clay
ton, it will ho remembered, was Secretary of
Stato in the Cabinet of Zaciiakv Taylor.
.Mr Clayton is himself a scholar, a lawyer and
a statesman of good renown, and his testimony,
on those points, as to Gen. Scott, is important
and satisfactory- Abovo even this, note the
testimony and the argument of Mr. Clayton as
to General Scott s purity and patriotism; and
observe particularly, that lie states by au
thority, and as a fact uViici he k notes to be true
that Gen. Scott resisted a bribe of ono million
nod a quarter of dollars, and tho Presidency of
Mexico for five years. Mr. Clayton is not tho
man to say this if lie docs not know it. Wo
supposo tho evidonco is to be found in the Stato
Department at Washington, and tliat Mr. Clay
ton, as Secrclary"of State, was fully apprized of
tho whole matter.

The " Democracy" held a Convention at Chel

ing, lion. L II. Peck chief orator. At the out
set, David Dearborn, of Corinth, expressed a
doubt whether ho had got into tho right box,
but speodily this doubt was solvod by a report
from tho committee on resolutions, made by an
ex-coalition democrat, Esquire Dickey. The
resolutions wore, for Pierce & King, and the old
lino stato ticket iiomiiiitod at lliirlington to
wit, John S. Robinson it Co. Hon. S. .M. liig
elow, of llrookfiold, then olfered a substitute,
declaring in favor of tho coalition platform of
May III, 18-10, and of the state ticket nominated
at Montpeher, to wit, our old friend Lawrence
IJraiuerd mid his associates. The substitute was
rejected, when Mr. Iligelow and his coadjutors
withdrew, and Ihe remainder of the Convention
had things in their own way. The following is
their ticket :

ono C. G. Eastman, who declines neiUier ono

to stand as tho colleague of u man who permits

a man who respects himself.

The Southern Slavocratic Sizzle.
Mr Saint I.eon, ono of tlio editors of The
Soullitrn Prtss, tho ultra organ of slavery and
disunion at Washington, lias a long article in
that piper to the effect that the interests of his
party require an active opposition to the Hero of
Chlppowa. llu says:
" It seems to me, that a 'masterly inactivity'
would not answer in this caso; and that for the
sake of our friends, ttnd Hit tttliamatt triumph of j
our jmnaplts, It was important, promptly ami
openly to sustain tht twmintts of tUt Dtmocmlic
party, anil oppost Hit triumph of Cen. Scott, and
tht tvil iitlurntts which surround him."
The Hints (Columbus, Ga.) goes moro pre
cisely into the reasons why slavery requires that
Scott should be kept out of tho White House.
It will bo seen by tlie following that they nro by
no means of recent date :
" About tho time that Gen. Piorco was engag
ed in Congress, opposing and attempting to put
down tho Abolitionists, Gen Scott was giving
them 'aid and comfort.' While Gen Pierce was
attempting to take from these Abolitionists the
hamlle they wanted to make of a 'denial of the j
right of petition,' by contending (and in which

no further notice of theni Gen. Scott was en
courairinir them and giving them 'aid and com

received, but he said uongress was bound uy the
Constitution to receive, rtfir and to m.roRT upon
petitions relating to itomestU slavery, as in the
cne o all other petitions' That is, that Con
gress was bound to treat the intermeddle in our
oiwi affairs 'relating to domestic slavery' w ith a
much respeeJas it treated petitions for mail routes
or any other national matter."

not rare, however, where the sons and daughters

hut ever retaining tho liveliest aHection for
their old mountain home, tlio village church and

from tho South and West, havo been in tho hab

havo been so greatly improved, tho number is
greatly increased. For a fortnight or moro tho

The Graves of our Fathers.
The family, and some of the descendants of
Ji.se Fletcher, Esq , one of thc first settlers of
Ludlow, Vt, after a separation of nearly forty
years, recently met together at the paternal
mansion, near Proctorsv lie : seven from Eas

been dead many years. No one of the children,
out of a family of fifteen, lives in the state ; yet
the farm their father setUed on, in 178', is still
owned bv them
This meeting, after so long a separation, was
happy and interesting, calculated not, only to
strengUien the bonds of fraternal kindness, hut
to honor their deceased parents. They march

In case of a Democratic triumph, it is thorough
ly understood that the entire influence of the
administration woold be given to the division of
the titate, and tlie admission ol the rtouinern

ihe whole as a Free State, There is no more

j This is doubtless " true as the book." It is to
be remembered that the doctrine of the loeofoco
platform is "our country as it is, and as it
ought to be." The locos think it oug-W to be a
great deal more slavocratic. Contrast with this
Uie much abused and much misunderstood plat
form of the Baltimore Convention, w hich excludes
slavery agitation of this sort.

" Scott feelui" here is rtry strong. In the Senior

Scott is us natural as breathing.
I Kentucky. The following is an extract of a
, private letter from an eminent and well informed
I Kentucky Whig, a warm Fillmore man before
the nomination, which incidentally says
" We intend to carry our State
for the Whig ticket. Scott was not the choice
of Kentucky, but I think thero is a cordial and
almost unanimous acquiescence in his nomination,
and, unless I am greatly deceived, we will give
him u very heavy imjority."

Mr. Clay and Gen. Scott. Tho Now York
Express wys :
Wo may take this occasion to siy, also, that
Mr. Clay conversed with freedom of Gen. Scott's
nomination, to one, if not more of his friends,
after his nomination, last week. Ho spoke of it
on Wednesday night of last week, and again on
I riday night, to one ol Ins tneniily watchers.
His preference, were for Mr. 1- illmore. His
belief, too, in regard to Mr. Fillmore's fitness,
availability, and services, were nn iltered tn the
end of time. What he wrote in the letter which
we published, in May last, he re-uttered in sub
stance in speaking of tho acts of the Convention.
Rut he was satisfied w ith the nomination of Gen.
Scott, and spoke in tlie highest om kindest ttrms
or mm as a man, as a soiater ana as a n lag ; and r
the only drawback to his full commendation of
the final acts of the Convention was tho reitera
tion of his oarlv and well known repugnance to
the selection of military men for the highest civil
Mass Meeting on Danker Hill. It will be seen
by the proceedings of the " Chnrlestottm Chip,
petra Ctnh," that preparations aro now being
made by the Whigs of that patriotic city, to in
vite the Whigs of the whole Union to a mass
meeting on Hunker 1 1 ill, on the the 1 1th of Sep
tember, being the anniversary of the triumphant
entry of Gen. Scntl and tht dmtnean army into the
ancient city ofMerico.

but Dillingham's speech, should it be reported
and meet Ins notice, might make him fall from
his horse and " hurt his knee," after which, (as
Pierce's examples proves.) fainting is practica
ble on short notice. We understand it is the
opinion of Paul Dillingliam that Gen. Scott is
a much smaller man than Frank Pierce, since no
accounts have yet been received Uiat Scott
ever gavo a poor boy, " a perfect stranger to
him," a cent to buy a stick of candy, or contrib
uted 2j cents to help build up a Sunday School
Library. These magnanimous donations are on
record in favor of Gen Pierce, and have got to
be met, or the consequence, Paul Dillingliam
Uiinks, will bo disastrous to tho Whig Party !
By the waywf Di'lingham is true to Uie policy
and practice that have heretofore marked his

both, and dodge the inauguration. Ho is the'best

The reply of Gen. Scott was this : Toll your

will be responsible for the Indians."
