near Duntonsville, Fdgueleld District, on that

was graced by the p esence ora number of la

on the Presidential question and the currency.
All responaded anid declared themselves its lavor

The meeting was also addressed by Judge But

The Whigs complain loudly, about the purse
and stcord being placed in the hands of the
President. What a commentary on their own
conduct? In our anticipated difliculty with Great
Britain, the Whig Representatives in Con
gress, with a unanimity unaexampled. placed
both the swoid and the purse in the hands of
Mr. Van Buren, who made no use of either.
Would the Vliig military candidate for the
Presidency, have exhibited such wise modera
tion? Would not the hero of cotuiaiLs bat
ties, have burned to signalize his desperate val
or, in an onslaught upon the British I Would
he not have plunged his hanads freely, into the
money bags of the nation ? Fortunate is it for
the country, that lie was not put to the trial.
Some years since. Mr. Clay made the memo

been light. and the greater portion of that
received, was disposed of from wagons,
at prices ranging from 6 to 9 cents-prin

has been a limited business done, as the
greater portion of the cotton ont hand is
