THE TIMES.
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1843.
, AT FAYETTE, TO-NIGHT,
The Whigs will celebrate the election of
Taylor and Fillmore, by an illumination,
procession, tpeaking, &c, &c.
lO"The citizens of Glasgow are invited
to attend, one and all.
THE CELEBRATION.
The celebration on Monday night passed
off admirably.
Just after dark the signal gun was fired,
and in a twinkling, the city was in a
blaze! Every whig house, and several
democratic, (not ultra!) was brilliantly illu
minated, which, with the bonfires on the
hills, banished darkness from the streets.
Immediately after the illumination, the
crowd assembled in front of Mr. Simp
son's school room, and a procession was
formed, Maj. John II. Turner and R. G.
ftunyan, Esq., acting as Marshals, and
marched through the principal streets of
the place, to the music of the Glasgow
Brass Band.
The procession was headed by the Stars
and Stripes and a Transparency containing
a large likeness of the old Hero. There
was some forty Transparencies in the pro
cession, lettered with various inscriptions
and devices, and as it moved over the hills,
for which our city is famous, the scene it
presented, together with the soul-stirring
music, the roaring of cannon, the waiving
of handkerchiefs by ladies, the shouts and
cheers of the Rough and Ready Boys,
was grand and imposing, beyond descrip
tion !
After making the tour of the city, the
procession halted at the place of starting,
and ANDREW J. IIERNDON, Esq., was
called to the Chair.
Upon taking the stand, the Chairman
made a very happy and thrilling speech,
briefly reviewing the life and services of
General Taylor, nnd congratulating the
people assembled that so pure minded and
honest a patriot had been called to preside
over the destinies of this great and world-
renowned KepuUIic. i tie speaker was
frequently stopped by the enthusiastic and
vociferous cheering of the multitude.
Gen. Clark, of Fayette, Gen. Wilson, of
Randolph, Dr. Cockerillof this place, J. R
Josselyn, of Monticello, and Thos. Shack
elford, of this place, severally responded to
ealls from the crowd, in speeches replete
with eloquence, wit and humor. We have
not the time nor the space, to attempt a
sketch of their speeches; let it suffice, that
they were just such speeches as the occa
sion called for such speeches as Rough
and Ready men ought to have made, on
celebrating the election of the old Hero to
the highest office in the gift of the Ameri
can People. They kept the immense crowd
in a continued roar of laughter, and were
frequently forced to slop till the cheering
had subsided.
After the speaking was over, several
ongs and parodies, composed for the occa
sion, were sung, to "those same old tunes"
which the "coons of '40" disturbed the
"babes of Amos," by chaunting.
Before adjourning, the Chairman return
ed his thanks fur tho honor conferred on
him, in a neat and appropriate speech. He
then proposed Nine cheers for the Whig
Ladies of Glasgow : they were such cheers
as did honor to the cheerers and cheered;
Nine cheers for Taylor ami Fillmore: given
with a hearty good will: Nino cheers for
tho "Taylor Times," whether for our
"Times" or "the good 'Times' that are
coming," under old Zack, we know not
but they were given, and such cheers ! The
Chairman was then cheered, and the mee
ting adjourned.
The crowd quietly dispersed, and in an
hours' time, our little city, which had been
tho scene of so much life and animation,
was as quiet as usual all having retired,
well pleased with the manner in which the
election of Gen. Taylor had been cele
brated. Writi.no. Mr. Montrose is now in our
place, for the purpose of forming a class
to instruct them in the art or writing. He
brings with him testimonials of the most
favorable character, as to capacity die
Mr. M. is both deaf and dumb, and in ad
dition to his capacity as a teacher, should
receive a liberal patronage on this account,
as this misfortune prevents him from en
gaging in most pursuits of life. We cor
dially and cheerfully recommend him to
the favorablo consideration of our citizens.

Missouri Statesman propoes to furuish his

KENTUCKY.
The Louisville Courier, of last Monday
states that they have returns from 59 coun
ties in Kentucky, including Louisville city,
which give Taylor a gain over Crittenden's
majority of 5,421 an average gain of 92
to each county. Forty-two counties are
still to be heard from, and if the gain con
tinues in the same ratio, the majority for
Taylor and Fillmore will be 17,748. We
think it quite likely that it will exceed even
this number. We have no doubt that
Kentucky will prove herself to be the ban
ner State of the Union.
We believe that we have complete re
turns only from New Jersey and .Delaware.

Serious Stage Accident. Yesterday
morning, as the Hannibal stage was about
leaving this place, on descending the hill
from McCoy's tavern, the horses became
unmanageable, and started to run; as they
turned the corner near Mr. Dunnica's resi-
dence, the stage upset, and fell on Mr.
Steel, the agent, who had been thrown
from the box, severely, but we are pleased
to learn not dangerously, hurting him.
Mr. Heetiier, the driver, partly jumped
and was partly thrown from the box, and
fell with such violence rs to break his leg,
just below the knee. Prompt assistance
was rendered, and they are both now
doing as well as could be expected. There
was but two passengers in the stage at the
time, (Senator Atchison, and another gen
tleman whose name we did not learn) both
of whom were considerably bruised, but
not seriously hurt. The stage was just dri
ving round to take in several other passen
gers. Had it been full, the damage would
doubtless have been more serious.
WATER FOR STOCK.
In order that stock of all kinds may be
comfortable and thrifty, they should have
constant access to pure water; and if pos
sible they should be supplied with water in
the barnyard as much manure is wasted,
besides the animal being liable to accidents,
in going to a great distance for water.
When it is neat- animals will drink often,
but when it is at a distance they ofien go
without and suffer in consequence and to
the disadvantage of the owner, for no ani
mal can be profitable without the requisites
to growin, neann and productiveness.
Some farmers have prepared water works
so as to have a constant supply of good wa
ter in the barnyard, at an expense of from
25 to 100 dollars and they would not be
deprived of it for five times the cost.
CELEBRATION OP THE ELECTION OF,
GEN. TAYLOR, 1 AT HUNTSNILLE,
MISSOURI. , - ,,
At a meeting of the. Whigs of Huntsville, on
Friday evening, preparatory to an illumination,
procession, &c. U. II, Hurckhaill fcsq., was
called to the chair, and W. M. Dameron ap
pointed Secretary. The President in a few ap
propriate remarks, explained the objects of the
meeting. The following preamble and resolu
lions were then submitted by W. R. Samuel,
and unanimously adopted.
Whereas, by the latest Telegraphic Dispatch.
es, it has been ascertained beyond a doubt, that
General Z. Taylor has been elected President,
and the patriotio statesman Milliard Fillmore,
Vice President of the United -States, and a a
portion of the great Whig party, we deem it ap
propriate, lo give some public demonstration of
joy, at so glorious a victory, be it therefore
Resolved, That wa offer our congratulations
to the Whigs of Randolph especially, and to the
Whigs of ibe Union, in general, for the Whig
triumphs we have witnessed, in the remit of the
late elections.
Resolved, That we hail with pride and grati
gcation, the election of Taylor and Fillmore to
the two highest offices within ihe gift of ih

ben. LI. Wilson and Ihoa. 1'. Kuby, were
appointed marshalls of the night; the meeting
then adjourned until the lime fixe J upon by the
committee, for the celebration to commence. As
soon as the sable mantle of night had spread up.
on the earth, nearly every Whig house, (and
some of the democratic ones too, for which we
thank them,) were illuminated, as if by magic;
when a large concourse of citizens of the town
and a goodly number from the country, assem
bled nl the Court house, (which was also beauli
fully illuminated,! where the procession was
immediately formed, by the mnrshalls, headed by
music on the -violin, and proceeded to march to
every house in the town, which piesented any sp
pearar.ee of joy, and at every one, long, loud,
and hearty cheering, made the welkin ling, for
the hero of the Rio Grande. After perambula
ting the town, ihe procession again proceeded to
the Court house, where the crowd were en
tertained for some time, with patriotic and cheer
ing speeches, by L. D. Brewer, E. B. Cone, G.
H. Burckhartl, end Gen. R. Wilson; and also
by a'few pertinent and well timed remarks, by
J. O. Oxley, N. Langston, Dr. Wight, S.
Wright, Col. Thos. P. Ruby and W. R. Samu
el. Tbe assembly then adjourned with three
mighty Huzzas for old Zack. Every thing went
off perfectly harmonious and satisfactory, no
body got drunk, all the excitement was produced
by the outbursts of enthusiasm for the old hero.
During the procession round the town, we were
frequntly cheered by the ladies, who I believe
by the ' y, are nearly all for Taylor.
Respectfully youis, &c, R.
Col Taylor, of Newport, Ivy., died on
the 7th inst., a short time subsequent to vo
ting for the President eleel; to enable him
to do which, the Judges visited his house
and received his ballot. He was a cousin
of General Taylor's, was eighty years of
age, and one of the wealthiest men in that
section of country. He has left a very
largo and valuable' real estate property.

MAJOR DOWNING DISCOURAGED.
Private report to James K. ' Polk, President of
America and his part of Mtxico, and would

he had nt gvet up en half of it. vr
;. . Telegraph Wires, Oct. 31, 1348.
Dsar Colonel: I've been stumping it round
all over the lot for two Of three months, tight
and light, for our American friend, Gineral Cass,
and as I spose you are veiy anxious and uneasy
to know how u s coming out, i thought i would
set down and make out a privato report and send
it on to you, giving you soma of the premonitory
symptoms, so that when the efterelap comes, you
may be a little prepared lor it, and not feel so
bad. As 1 said afore, I've been all around the
lot, sometimes by ihe steamboats, and sometimes
by ihe railroads, and sometimes by the telegraph.
end when there was'nt no N other way to go, I
rooted it. And 1 m satisfied the jig is up with
us, and it's no use in my dying it any longer;
and Mr. Buchanan's speech was all throwed
sway too. I'm very cure we shall get some of
the states, but 1 II be hanged it 1 can tell which
ones. There ain't a single Slate that I should
dare to bet upon alone, but taking 'em all in the
lump I should still stick out strong lor hall ado
aen, at least, you may depend upon it, we
should elect Gineral Lass easy enough il il
was'nt for Gineral Taylor; but he stands peskily
in the way, jest as much as he stood in the way
ol the Mexicans at bony Visty. As lor Mr.
Van Buren, if he stood'lgin us alone, we should
tread him all to atoms; he could nt make no
headway at all, especially after we got the nomi-
natiou at Baltimore. Jest between you and me,
I don't think much of Mr. Van Buren now. I
don't believe now, he ever was a Democrat. I
think he only made believe all ihe lime; and I d
bet two lo one he's only making believe note.
I wish the Old Gineral, dear old Hickory that's
dead and gone, could be here now to have the
handlir g of him for a little while; if he did'nt
bring him into the traces, I would'nt guess agin.
But, as I said before, Gineral Taylor is pes
kily in the way all over (he country. First, 1
thought 1 would figure around in some of the
strong Whig districts; for, thinks 1, if I can make
our friends show a bold front for Cass there, it
will be such a wet blanket for the Whigs that
ihey'l give it up. Well, 1 celled a public meet
ing without distinction of parly; and I pul it to
'em strong for Cass and the Constitution, and
Csliforny forever. They all listened, and every
little while they hurra'd and clapped; and thinks
I tho tide is turning, I'm going to carry this place
all huller, Whigs and all. But when I got
through, an old rusty faced farmer, away back
in one corner, got up and looked round, and
says he- " Three cheers for Zachary Taylor "
1 hunder and cannon I if there was nl a roar, set
me down for a liar. Why, Colonel, I haint
heard nothing like it since the storming of Cha
pultepec. Il look me light off my feet. 1 see
at once the battle was all agin us there, and
thought 1 belter make my escape under ihe
smoke of it as fast as possible. At first I felt
rather bad about it. And then agin I thought I
ought to have expected it, for 1 knew the Whigs
had voted that Ueneral laylor was a Whig, and
had made up their minds to go for him. So I
streak'd il it off for a strong Democratic district:
for I found our main dependence must be among
our own friends. Here I called a mass meeting
without distinction of party, for I was sure we
should get up such a roar for Cass thai the
Whigs would be dumbfouned, and be pretty like
ly to fall in with us. Well, how do you think
it worked? I made a roarin' speech for Cass:
told em what a great statesman and great war
rior he was, and how he had proved the former
by offering to swallow all Mexico, and how he
had proved the latter by breaking his sword in a
passion; and more than all that, since the nomi
nation at Baltimore, he was the greatest Demo
crat in the country. And now, says 1, my
friend, three cheers for Cass, Constitution and
Californy. Well, ihey gin three good loud
cheers, and I thought that nail was well drove
and clinched. Then a blacksmith, with a smut
ty nose, and a leather apron on, gets up and
sinjs out, " Nine cheers for old Rough bnd Rea
dy i" And, by jingo, it went like a hurricane;
full twice as loud and three limes as many as the
cheers for Oass. 1 had a good mind to cut and
run, and give il all up. But al last I plucked up
courage and laced Hie storm. I calitd out lo the
blacksmith, and says I, my friend, when wo call
ed this meeting without distinction of party, it
was all meant for Gineral Cass, ihe Democratic.
cannidate, and it's not very handsome for a Whig
to come acre ana interrupt us in this way.
''You lake me for a Whig, do you?" say he.
"To be sure I do," says I, "you are no Dem
ocrat to act in this way."
At thai he reddened up so, the smut on his face
turned blacker than it was before, and says he,
"1 d nave you know, sir, 1 in as good a Demo
crat as you ere. I was born and bred a Demo
crat: and I mean to live and die a Democrat, but'
I go Tor old Hough and Keatly, let who will go
agin him." Then he called out ngin for nine
cheers for odd Bough and Ready: and the woy
they roared em out was a caution. I see it was
no use talking about Whigs and Democrats. I
must try some other hook.
So I cruised around on the Free Soil territory,
and got up meetings, and preached up the VVil
mot Proviso hot and heavy, and told 'em Gine
al Cass would go for it with all his might to the
day of his death. Then I thought I would get
'em on ihe hip in a way ihey could'i help giving
me a rousing hurra, so 1 called out "three cheers
for Free Soil and Gineral Cess !" Well, the
three cheeis come as quick and as true as Pad
dy's echo, for it was, "three cheers for Free Soil
and Gineral Taylor I
1 began to think ihe only chance was for us
to try to carry the South. So I wheeled about
and turned about, and jumped Jim Crow, in the
slave States. 1 told em Ihey must stir around
and elect Gineral Cass or the whole slavery bu
siness would ba uniet, but if ihey would onlv
elect him ihey might feel Bafe, for they had his
letters to show that he was in favor of uphold
ing slavery all weathers, and of carrying it into
every Territory we could lay hands on. They
all answered me very coolly, that they had much
rather trust a straight forward Southern man,
that they knew had no tricks about him, ihsn to
trust a Northern man with Southern principles:
and they reckoned, on tbe whole, they should
go for Gineral Taylor. As a last chance, I
thought I would try to rouse 'em up in old Penn.
sylvany. So I went lo 'em and told 'em their
coal and iron was in danger, and the only way
for 'em to save it was lo elect Gineral Cass,
who would protect it to the bat's end, for he
was as good a tariff man as Henry Clay, At
that every one of 'em. Quakers and Germans,
and Dutchmen, and all. put their finger agin
the side of their nose, and said, " Friends we
tried a tariff roan last lime, but wa didn't save
l i ! I. .. :. , ,
our tuoi biiu iruu uy 11, u we nave made up our
minds lo try an honest man this lime wa are
going for Zachary Taylor."
By this time I was convinced ihe game was
up, and it was no use lo stump it any longer,--We've
eol into the current whera ws can't help
ourselves, and "era going down over the falls of
Niagara as fast aa we can go; and I hope you
and "all the rest of our party will be as calm and
composed, and considerate, as tha Indian was
that went down over them awful Falls a great .
many years ego. lie luggea ana punco on t
noe against the current with ell his might, till ha -found
iheie was no chance left, and then bs laid 'i
down his paddle, and took up his bottle of rum, .
and sot down quietly in the bottom of the canoe,
and tipped tha bottle up to h'.s mouth, and sot ar.d
drinked, and took the good of it, till he pitched .
head over heels down ihe fulls, and went out of
sight forever.
Now. my last advice to you, drar Colonel, and
to all our friends, and especially to dear old Mr.
Ritchie, is lo set down quiet and composed in
the bottom of ihe boat, and eat away al (In pub
lie crib, and drink away at ihe bottle of the Sub
Treasury till (he 4th of March, when wa shall
pitch over the Falls together, drinking our last
gurzle.

dwellings, In 1832, the town of Dumfarline in
n.nn n I F VVhn a lli.al. ami ,u,ft. . n L. f . .
Scotland, was ellectecl with cholera, from the 3d
of September until the 23J of October. At
that date, every street, lane and alley was fumi"
gated with chlorine gas. Within five days the
pestilence was entirely annihilated. In Edin
burgh the gas was used, but rather late, and in
several towns with equal effect. It wis ascer
tained beyond the shadow of a doubt, and to
this fact we beg ihe attention of our readers, and '
ihe public at laige, that every house in the in
fected districts in which chlorine gas was used ss
a disinfecting agent in the cholera of 1S32, en. ,
joyed an absolute immunity from the disease.
and this fact is the great preservative against tha
frightful disease, and a positive proof that chol- '
era owes its origin lo electrical changes in ihe
atmosphere. Caie must be taken in using the
gas, as it is destructive of animal life; and, must
not be inhaled in the lungs.

CLOVER FOrIiORSES.
It is a common remark, says Ihe Michi
gan Farmer, that clover hay, if fed to hor
ses for any length of time, occasions cough
and greatly aggravates, if it docs not oc
casion tho heaves. There are two reme
dies for this. One is to deposile the hay
in a manger instead of a rack. Tho leaves
of clover cured after the old fashion, are
so dry and crispy that they crumble and
pulverize as they are drawn violently from
the rack, Occasioning a dust, which being
inhaled, irritates the lungs, and hence cough
&c. In taking up hay from a manger no
dust is created. Another and belter rente-
dy is, to cure clover in tho right manner
Dy cureing it in the cock instead of spread
ing and turning again and again, its leaves
become wilted instead' of becoming crispy,
and do not crumble. Thus is not only an
immense labor saved in curing, but no in
considerable loss in crumble of the leaves
to say nothing of the pernicious effect
above spoken of.

Cheap Postage. The French Assem
bly has passed a bill for the reduction of
postage on all inland letters, to four sous
or four cents. The same will go into ef
feet on tho 1st of January next. Russia
has also established a penny p. stage thro,
out her great empire. Shall the United
States be long behind these countries in
this great reform which so vitally affects
tho common good of our common people?
