Mr. Webster in his great Speech lately
made at Saratoga, held the following lan
"One of the gentleman of the South, of
that Nullifying State ltights pa,-y that
has absorbed the Administration, or been
ah-rtied by it, comes boldly out with the
declaration that the period is arrived for a
direct tur on land, and among the reasons
assigned for this project is this one. that
it will bring the North to the grindstone.

will be the parties ground, and who 1t
We sup)ose that the "dentlemstl of the
South" to whom Mr. Webster had refer
eice is Mr. Rhett, who no doubt did as
sign as a reason for prefering n system of
firect taxation, that instead of being a bur
len to the South and a benefit to the North
it would he a burden to both alike, (as all
taxes ought to be). If to use Mr. Web
ters own words, it would bring the North
W the grindstone. would it i.ot equally
ring the South to the grindstone!
But what does Mr. Webster mean by
he declaration that. wce shall see before this
,ontest is ovrr who will be the parties grounl
nd icho the grinders?
It is impossible to mictake his meaning
He exults in anticipation over ihe glorious
prospect that upon the election of General
larrison, which lie professes to regard as
ibsolately certain, we are again to have a
tystem of taxation which will bring the
South, and the South alone to the grind
dtone for the benefit of the North or rather
if the Northern nanufacturers-in other
ords the Tariffis to he revived.
We have long believed that this hope
was one of the chief contributers to the
r.eal which animates the Harrison party
at the North. Now we have it from the
highest authority. What will Mr. Weh
ster's Southern allies say to this-the Pres
ons, the Thompsons, the Dawsons, &c.
They know that the eflfort is to be made.
yet they say not a word about it to their
constitients, and when the strugle comes
they will endeavour to disguise their
treachery by abundance of empty .bluster

tolrs and Southeri traitors that iv'en if they
should succed in electing Harrison (of
which we have no apprehension) their ef
forts to establish a Bank and revive the
'ariff will he in vain. For even if they
should triumph at Washiigton it would
only be to rouse the slumbering energies

A passenger on board the steamer Gen
ral Lincoln, last week, by the name of
James Webb, who resides at Fairhaven,
spoke very freely upon the subject of his
excessive thirst-which in no way dimin
ished since his earliest recollection. He
mentioned, incidentally, that he was 46
years of ae and frot childood to the
pesent day hie had swalloived at the aver
rge rate of six gallons of water every 24
tors! Ca pt Bealq, the conmmandler of the
toat, besides several other persons on

esdnt of H inghanm, very distinctly recol
lected the talkt hat this eiiormous constttp

greed in saying that Mr. Webb was a nman

'ort, rather muscular man, with a yellow

beath, and believes that he always shall,
o long as he can obtain water. A phiysi

passenger, remembered how marvellons
his case was cotnsidered, in his early pro.
essional life. On being guestioned par
iciarly with regard to some physiological
oints, the subject of these remarks said
hat he rarely pierspiredl. hut it seemed to
