Certainly. One who formerly followed tlie
fortune of tha "Great Embodiment,'' and
who, up to th last moment of hia life, op
posed hit (laughter by his pretended friends
a.id the absorption of the Whiff party by tlio
Abolitionist ; one who now finds "more
sentiment in common" with tha democracy
than either ha or his "Idol'' ever had with
the present miserable truckling to A fanati
ciem which, while they make it profitable,
they despite. Finally : a man who, while
he may not agree with the Democracy in do
tail, infinitely prefers their creed to that of
tha sectional opposition, whom he believe
ara with the hops of reward and at the in.
ligation of the niggort, the Cash and the
devil, bent on bringing the country to ruin.
Henry Clay was an opponent of tha prin
ciple that constitutes the life-blood of the
Horublican party. Anticipating just such
crisis as now exists in the Union, he de
clared n tli door of the Senate, that when
it did come he would bo found in the tanks
of the Democralio party, in opposition to
the janus-faocd party and it nigger doo
trines that be was In favor of the Union
and union measures, and that the Demo
cratic was the only party that sustained
such doctrines. The victory in Kentucky,
in this vlaw of the case, will bo truly a

For the Empire.
M. EniToa ; A few daya ago I exposed
some of the gyration of candidate Denniaon,
with a view to remind the Gaaette, that men
ho lire in glasshouses r-hould never undertake
to throw atones. This it seems ao terribly
ghtened the Editor, that ini-tead of standing
by his candidate manfully, as a ftiend ahould
o, and try to raise him from the couch of
thorns upon which I placed him, be claps bis
tail between bis legs and runs away from him
like a scared spaniel; then turns and barka at
the Empire. Tbia ia a game of legerdemain
that might doto play off in Warren county, but
it won', do in Montgomery,
I have shown that the Gazette's candidate
for Governor gyratei; is vacilaliug; that he pro
poses to euterlain different principles at differ
out times; this Ihe Gar.eltR does not and dare
ot undertake to deny. But la an off .el it puta
in the plea that Judge Ranney ia guilty of su
taming Democratic Resolutions! How wonds
rful sagacious the discovery, that it ia wrong
for a Democrat to tuatain Democratic reaolu
tions I But Judge Rsnuey is also guilty of
upportirg S, P. Chase, for Senator. It is true
that the Judge might perhaps have found bet
ter employment juat then. I presume lie took
Chase to bean honest man, who then profesaed
to be a Democrat; but it turned out that he
was only a democrat for that ufiice I After he
btained it in this surreptitious wsy on false
pretenses he returned, like a sow that wat
washed, to hia Wallowing iu the abolition mire;
profitabl operation, but not a very honest
ono, for man to make who ia aspiring to tb
We are also reminded by the Gazette that
udge Rauuey ie a "weather cock," a "Pirala
iller," a "kneesbender," that he can "loll up,"
and that he waa at one time a "practical
Bailor." These are certainly accomplishments
that re not to be disputed, but we doubt the
correctness of the Gsaette'a information aa to
hia having been t aailor, Hia "weather cock"
qualities I think were pretty well displsyed
when he accepted the nomination for Governor;
I guess be knew about which wsy the wind
was blowing; his expertness aa a "pirate kil
ler" will be properly appreciated when the
Gaxelte man aballsee the aboliliun land pirates
drop on the second Tuesday of October next.
Whether he is a "knee-bender" can be nicer
tained provided your caudidate will meet bim
in a public discussion; he will not only bend
his knees, but will make them aoiite together I
And finally, I have no doubt that he will "roll
up" such a majority against th. abolitionists aa
will astonish even Deunison himself.
I have thus briefly replied to the Gazetle'a
article; butmyown opinion is, thst the best
rgumeut against such childish prattle ia eon
For the Empire.
Mt. EuiToa: I observe a cuntroveray among
correspondent of the aeveral daily papers
growing out of the "tall throwing" at the tall
ateeple, tnd tb presentation of a ailver horn
to the "Independents" "for making the best
plsy on record, 'MO feet high through MX1 feat
The statement of fact in the inscription is
certainly fanciful, but might be pardoned in
consideration or the fsct that the horn ia a
4oieino instrument; that Mr. Jeffera' business
is to sell machi lea, and that th attachment of
tho aavetal oompanie to their respective "tuba"
a in ittclf commendable, were it nut for the
fact that such an heraldic announcement, if nn,
true even in part, dove injustice to others of
Tb statemeotla cert. inly incorrect It msv
doubtless hv sppesred to many, UanJixg a
li ground, that more than on atream went
over Ihe ateeple, while it would be impossible to
find a man wbo occupied an elevated position
wheue ha could judge accurately, who would
agree with them. But suppose, th stream,
did go clear over th steeple. Th siaepl i.
193 feat high feet high, and tha 4iArenc be
tween that aod 200 fml 1 great, when it I ob.
erred, that in "tall" throwing every foot at the
end of the stream ia aa good aa thra foot aoroe
what nearer th noasle,
But notwithstanding th fact that tb Iude.
pndenU' atream appeared, to many standing
on tha ground, to go clear over the eUeple, the
real fact of the ease is, that on th occasion
referred to, th highest stream thrown by the
Independent, fell short of th wood Work juat
shout as far (ealimaled at six feet,) aa th high
at Oregon atream want above it, "Dayton1'
I understand that Mr. Beniamia aeid (and ha
Is quoted e authority bv Onsus.) that th la.
dapeudeuta' atream went within two let of th
top of tne wo-dwoM, and th epray went over
ooiu Dana, wnicn I suppose is substantially a
correct statement of the firat throw made by
the ludependeotai at the Mood aod ihi,.l
throw, there waa no observation taken from th
poini ueaiguaUKI oy "Uregon."
Tbi I not correct. Mr. Benjamin wa at
lb point designated by "Oragou" mlt tkt turn
and did lak observation of th eond and
third well ta of lb firat throw made by th
I ' r . ...
iuurpiuiiii.j aim ii any on will cooault nim
th on aut.ject.ha will doubtless state, substan
tially, what I aSmud above.
We will admit, for tb aak of tb argument
that th Independent did throw through AUO
feet of hone, in addition to th suction hose above
water, (nd the width of the engine, Which must
hav been very awkwardly managed to hav ex
tended over only 447 feet of ground, when it ia
considered that the Independent knew just
what they wer going to try to do when they
went there. It is ttu that the Oregon, had
only on hundred feet of boas, and were sup
plied by the Deluge. It is not th object of
this communication to discuss the mooted point
among engines, which of these positions, con'
sideriog all the circumstances, is most advan
tageous; but soma thinga are certain, viz:
lat, It ia a very nice point whether th Or
gun did not make much tb beat throw, conaid
ring all th circumstance.
Sd. That the Oregona threw the highest
3d. That in any decision of these points,
th Independent hav received a reward for
doing, and th credit for doing, what they did
The apirit of rivalry exhibited by our our fire
compaoiea ia certainly commendable, and I
hope will lwy b in good nature.

A Laov in Chains. At tjuecn Victoria's
Slate Ball on the Stb ult., the dress of Madam
Van de Weyer, wifu of the Belgian Minister,
attracted especial attention. It waa a double
skirt of blue tulle, the upper much lighter In
color then the under. This hsd three or four
baudeof much darker color down on each side,
sccording to the present mode, but on earh
of these banda were four large ringa, extending
down the bauds, wilhh intervale between each
ring, and for the aupposed use of looping or
confining the skirt. The effect was very novel
