A CARD.?To the Editor of the Jeffersimiar.
Dear Sir.?Vou have 110 doubt see n a Card in
the Advocate over the signature of my name; an
nouricing that I had taken leave ot tiiC good old
democratic party, and united with the Wings.?
That Card was published by my .consent, it is
txue-^but such was the situation 01 my min i at
the tipie ol its publication, that i do not consider
it'at all binding on mo. 1 have been induced, trom
a recollection of this great error, to join the Tem
perance Society. I intend, therefore, to return
u to the old fold. The Whigs have 110 use for "?m
?perate men?I, therefore, ask the favor of you.
sir, to give this Card a place in vonr paper, and
oblige, R1C11AKU HARKliSOiN, Jr.
Se^t. 17; 1844.
The Discission.?The political discussion be
tween tlie.tivo parties will take place on .Satur
day, 1 iitli October. We have on the part ot' the
democrats, one or two distinguished champions in
view, iroin whom we shall hear in a few days.
The A a-important.?The leader of whijrery
fs'very much afraid, lest with such an important
personage for its candidate as himself, his party
may; in its superciliousness, have too great aeon
tempt for his adversary. This is the conclusion
fll'Mr. Clrfy's letter to the Missouri whigs:
"The wh'gs know that the maxim -never des
pise an enemy' is as wise and sound in politic- as
it is in war, and they mean to combat a-; if \ ipu
: leon or Wellington, instead of Col. Polk, wer - in
the.field, if they put forth their strength and
energies accordingly, thev will achieve the most
' signal political victory ever won in this or anj
" I am your friend and obedient servant.

on his side, even the "drspiaed"' name of Co I'or.k

The largest City Meeting- !?Speaking FR03t
four Stands !!?There was one of the largest
and most enthusiastic meeting held at the Ecxing
ton Market, last evening, bv the Democracy of
the Eleventh Ward that we have almost ever wit
nessed. The spacious area was densely tilled by
a compact mass of human beings, and so general
ly was the meeting attended, that it was with ex
treme difficulty that the several lower wards, at
tending, could approach the stand in order to de
po.-ite thereon, the many and handsome banners
which they bore in their well filled ranks.?
From the great number oi persons who occupied
the square, it was deemed expedient to cause
additional stands to be erected in order that the
addresses could be heard by all. At the time of
our arrival, although somewhat late, the size
of the assemblage was undiminished, and we
had the gratification of seeing, in the full at
tendance of the ladies, a still further evidence
of the" patriotism and zeal for the Democratic,
cause, which now actuates the bosoms ot the
("air daughters of our land. The various stands
were most beautifully and appropriately orna
mented by numerous transparencies, &c., which
amply proved that our friends are up and doing,
and will most certainly give a good and grati
fying account of their city at the coming elec
tion. We have not room to go into particulars;
but altogether it was one of the most enthusi
astic meetings which has been held in Haiti
more. Addresses, able, eloquent, powerful aud
convincing addresses were delivered by J. 31.
Buchanan. Major Devazac, Hon. Hugh Ely,
Col. W. F. Giles, Dr. J. J. Graves. Francis
Gallagher, Col. Bedinger.of Virginia, X. R. Ware,
Messrs. Hack, Snvder and Leonard.
Outrageous Assault.?As the Democratic
procession was last evening proceeding to the
meeting at Lexington Market, we learn, that an
attack was made upon it, and several persons in
the ranks were much injured, pistols were like
wise iired at them, aud we are informed that the
ball from one of tliein entered the hip of a person
in the ranks. The assault was entirely unpro
voked, and in every respect unjustifiable and out
rageous. All good citizens and correctly minded
persons must unite in deprecating the occurrence
of such acts of violence. Every individual in the
community has the right of a tree and untrammel
led expression of his political opinion, and should
he protected therein: but il" the Whig party expect
to carry the election by brow-beating their political
opponents, they reckon without their host, and may,
in the end, perceive their mistake. We hope that
the attack oi last evening may be the last which
we shall be called upon to record.?It was an out
rage on the law and on the rights of persons, and
we regret to add that no portion of the police was
present to arrest the perpetrators.?lb.
In spite of the affecting- appeals of Messrs.
Webster and Cassius _M. Clay, on the Boston Com
mons, on Thursday last, at the great Whig Rally,
'? to the third Party," (or the Abolitionists.) to su
persede Mr. Birney, and vote for Mr. Clay, the N.
Y. Herald of Saturday last says: "A great, jtnd,
it may be, a fatal error has, indeed, been commit
ted by the Whig leaders, orators, and newspaper
organs in this region of the country. There can
i). Out little doubt, in our opinion, that the Abolition
vote will be th is year greatly beyond jirccedeni. It
is lost irretrievably, to the Whigs. The panic in
the Whig ranks is increasing daily. The buoyan
cy of spirit, and the enthusiastic vigor displayed
at the commencement of the campaign, appear to
have departed; It is now found to be very difficult
to command a good supply of the 'sinews of war.'
And, as is uniformily the case, the evidences of
lukewarmness and failing energy' in the Whig
ranks, are adding immensely to the enthusiasm,
vitro r and strenuous efforts of the Locofocos."
'The Philadelphia Gazette (also Whig) of Friday
confirms this calculation, by slating, that " The
Liberty party have been holding a Convention for
several days in this city. They approve of neither
day nor Polk, but name Mr. iiirney as their can
didate. At their meetings in Independence Square'
there has been some earnest and eloquent speak
ing. Mr. Aaron, from Norristown, isa very effect
ive popular orator, and gains unusual attention."
Ohio.?A subscriber writes us from Steuben
vilJe, Ohio, that" the prospect of a glorious victory'
in Ohio was never brighter. A strong and pow
erful current of popular feeling seems in favor of
our cause;?the numbers are with the Democracy,
and consequently the ability to conquer. Yoti
may rest assured that victory will perch upon our
The Potatoe Plague.?A farmer in Vermont
states that his potatoes, where the land was mixed
with barn yard manure, are almost entirely cut oft
by the rot, while those on a small piece manured
with muck soil are perfectly sound and health}'.?
This is an important fact to farmers.
Another Extensive Counterfeiter Arrest
ed.?At Cincinnati, on the 1 Oth inst., J. L. Las
ser, a hotel and hoarding-house keeper in that ci
ty, was arrested, with his wife, on a charge of coun
terfeiting. About ?2.000 in counterfeit Virginia
5s were found, and a plate for striking 10s of Ten
nessee money. Upon the wife a bundle of coun
terfeit Wheeling os was found.
