Mr. Webster has certainly discovered fj
the diff'erence "twixt tweedle dum and S
tweedle dee." In his reply to Mr. Cal- r,
houn he repudiated and scouted the infer- j
ence that he was in favor of assuming the tI
debts of the States-said he had ever been H
opposed to it, was so still, and should set j
himself against every attempt of the kind- A
But he was in favor of distributing the re- a
venue from the public lands among the ,
States. He opposed assuming their debts, ,
and only went for paying them. He
would not have the Federal Government i
do the unconstitutonal thing of issuing its s
stock in place of that of the States, and ti
redeem it by the means orthe high tariff- s,
would only have the U. States Treasury a
emptied among the States, and then the a
Federal Government contract a constitu- S
tional public' debt on its own account, to 0
be redeemed by a tariff. What a singular L
consolation it must be to a large class of 11
men, to be assured from such high author- it
ity, that the difference between right and e
wrong lies wholly in the pretext we may
use to dress up our actions, and in no sort
either in the motives or the inevitable ef- tI
fect. Will not Mr. Webster favor the ti,

Population.-The census, so far as it has ti
advanced, allowing a proportionate esti- it
mate for the states in which it has not yet
been taken, raises our population to more a
than seventeen millions. Vere we dispo- ti
sed to meddle in the affairs of nations, our o1
voice would soon command respect, as by ft
our population we are placed next to i3ri- P
tion, France, Russia and Austria. Even
Prussia has been distanced by us, and Tur- ei
key with all its dominions in Europe and n
Asia. We believe, however, that the adtmi- -
miral sentiment of Washington has become 9
the established and approved policy of the d
country, and that we shall continue to let
the rest of the world fight their own battles n
and settle their vexed questions, while we ti
confine ourselves to our own national af- p
fairs. Before the contest for the masters m
ofthe world, which some anxiozs politi- n
cians expect to occur between Russia and ti
England, will have been decided, if we h1
pursue our peaceful and retired policy, we n
shall be a world within ourselves, a coun- t!
try greater in population and resources than n
any in Europe.
Young Men.-Most young men consider
it a great misfortune to be poor, or not to tj
have capital enough to establish themselves f(
at theiroutset in life, in good business.- s
This is a mistaken notion. So far from )
poverty being a misfortune to him, if we a
may judge from what we every day behold, r1
it is really a blessing; the chance is more i
than ten to one who starts with plenty of o
money. Let any one look back twenty
years, and see who commenced business a
at that time with abundant ineans, and s
trace them down to the present day-how
many of these new boais of wealth and a
standing? On the contrary, how many s
have become poor, lost their places in socie- t
ty, and are passed by their own boon com
panions, with a look which painfully says,
I know you not!

Mr. Clay continued his speech to-day, e
on the distribution hill, making a more
strenuous and labhored effort on that sub- -
ject that he bad ever before made. He
commenced, however, by referring to a
matter not necessarily connected with the
question, but which had been incidentally t
brought by some one into the debate-the
trade between France and the U. States. n~
He said that it now stood on a very une- t
qual and to tus atn unfavorable footing. On U
our raw material. Cotton, France levied aC
dnty of 2 cents per lb. This raw material g
after being wvrouight up in France, was
made worth three or four hundred dollars fi
a pound, and yet wre admitted that manu
facture as well as the other manufactures h
and prodoce of France free of duty. The ii
balanee of trade wvas always unfavorable r<
to us. In saying this he did not wish to
tntter one sentiment unfriendly to France..
He had anxiously labored, on the contra- a
ry, to increase the trade with her, and had a
sought, by ditrusing our trade, to break up
the concentration of it in the ports of oiie d'
power. It was through his means that a a
clause was introduced in the taritf of 1832, ru
making a ditrereince of ten per ceat in the 13
duty on silks from beyond the Cape of
Good Ilope and those from this side of it. M
It was with extreme regret that he had e'
heard a sentiment from a venerable friend se
of his, in the other liotuse, (Mr. Adams) to n'
the effect that Louis Phillipe had no right "
to the throne of France, either by descent te
or conquest, or other title, lie was sorry b
such a sentiment had been uttered, and ft
he could not concur in it. France, by the ci
revolution of 1831. placed Lotuis Phillipe p
on the throne, and for ten years she had as
sented to this movement, in his opinion, si
this gave him a better title than could h ave A
been won by conquest, or obtained by the b
accident of birth. He could not refrain b
from adding that this distinguished nmn- h
arch had governed his people, in the midst a
of unprecedented difficulties, wiith more
firmness and wisdom than any of his con. ti

A CL'AR BACK OUT.
A called n:ceti:g cf ti.e Anti-Enchelor, Anti
Old Maid, An i-Tobacco, Anti-Liquor,and An

:y of noticing the prnceedings of a kidicrous
imitation of a meeting by the A thens Bachelors'
Club, and to express their utter detestation and
:ontempt, of the manner in which said Athens
Club has answered sundry resolmions, adopt.
!d by this humble body at its last meeting.
On motiou, the Hon. E. Nog; was called to

The Committee having withdrawn, Dr. Ro,
lus was loudly called for, who arose and ad
fressed the mecting as follows:
Mr. President-As the object of this meeting
is one in which we are all deeply interested, it
nay not be amiss to take a synopsis ofthe events
which have called us together. The proceed
:ngs of the last meeting of this Society,in which
wvere several resolutions, expressing our disre
.ard of that contemptible paper, the "Bache
or," (then called the "Bachelors' Button,")
tnd of the ill-bred Club who publish it, having
leen wholly mistepresented and falsified, and
rnr Society attacked by a band of disappointed
Bachelors, who it is said are addicted to all
torts of enormities and breaches of the peace,
,we are again called together this evening, to a
lopt some measures declaiming our disinclina
ion hereafter, to notice any communication
rom those who have proved false to their own
onor, to their neighbors, and to their country.
As is known to the readers of the Edgefield
kdvertiser, a nd the Bachelor, the AthensBach.
lors' Club had the t emerity, a few weeks since,
o challenge this Society to a public discussion.
I meeting of the Anti-Society was consequent
y held and resolutions adopted, setting it forth
s the fartherest impossibility for the Athens
'lub to be considered equal in standing to our
iwn, either in public opinion or otherwise, and
therefore incompatible with the benevolent de
iigns of the Anti-Society, to enter into a public
liscussion with a ".et ofcrusty, crabbed, sour
ild Bachelors." At the same time, however,
est they might say that we feared the lash
>f their unruly tongues, one of our members
was selected to meet "1 any six" of their num.
>er, and give them their just deserts. This
was giving them a decided advanltage, but we
relt conscious that we were in the right, and
being so, should be upheld.
But how, Mr. President, was this meeting
and proposal noticed by them? I need but re
fer you to the 23d No. of the Bachelor, to prove
that it met with a cowardly equivocating an

any direct answer to our Society, but spent
the measure of their weak-brained craniums,
in an article of mimickry and attempted poetry.
I could not but be remitded, Mr. President,
when I read their report, of a stanza which I
htave frequently heard quoted, and wvhich I
thitik peculiarly adapted to the situation of their
Conmmttee. It is this:
" Thou essence of dock valerian and sage,
Disappointed in love and pregnant with rage.
Thou pest of the age, thou foe to mankitnd,
O'er butrdened with grief', and wanting inminad;
The worst that I wvish thee for nll thy bad
Is to take thy own physic, and read thy own
This would give them a task not the most
ettviabtle, but might prove betneficial, as it is
an oild adage. " that the hair of the same dog
will cure the bite.''
Butt the weaikest and most tnncalled for fea
tnte in their report is act attempt to implicate
the editcor of the Advertiset in our proceed
itigs. Now, w'e :as a Society, know Mr. Duri
soe to he a getnthsmnen, liut we do not knowv as
mneh of the condihuc'or of the Bachtelo'r, neither
have we aii opportutnity of ascertatinitng. as he
is ashamed to imake public his real name, but
assmnecs a fictitions one, and sends forth lisa
wvorlhess nonisensicaI sheet, wvith whatever the
Athens Bachielors' Chub, 'may say suits their
tastes and standing in society.
Allow tme to poitnt omit one more gross
isrepresentation. which their Committee
have had the insoletnce to put forth in theirire
port. W~e were challenged to a public discus
sion, but not wishing to waste time and enimber
the columns of a newspaper. with so trifling a
sub'ject, we did otThr to senud a tian to whip a
halt' dozen of thtem. The answer nhich we
get to this challenge is, " that they have been
assailed by us to pacify the wrath of angry wo
men." This, Mr. President, is a perfect "back
out." Can we then consistent with the high
standing of our Society, descend to notice, here
after, a set of night wrangling Bachelors; who
break windows, smash chamnpaigne glasses
and convert the fragmcenits of their crazy feast,
into missiles to throw at the servants. Bachie
lors of refitted taste: who break their tailors,
and make their fathers desperate. In short,
whlo have gone astray, and are desperately
wicked. My' imrsinand candid belief is,
Mr. President, that we should wholly refrain
fron, having anuy intercourse with them, and
conscious that this Eoeiety " cc mansce" etnter
tamu the same opintion, I will leave it with thenm
