lleury Clay1 Toaitioiu
The Douglas Democracy of this county,
ever eager to pervert truth and outrage
deceocy, whenever either militates against
their teachings, have sought to induce
the publio to believe that Henry Clay was
a "squatter soveroign," and that his opin
ion! upon the question of slavery in the
Territories were inoompatible with R-
publicanism. With a view of settiug the
"age of Aahluud" right before the pub
lic, and exposing the absurdity of these
assertions upon this question, we publish
below, extracts from his fgroat speech on
the compromise resolutions:
Mr. CUy 6ays: "The power then, Mr.
PneiJeut in my opinion and I extend
it to the Iulroduo'ion as well as to the
prohibitiuu of Slavory in the new Terri

there is this imporUot distinction between
Slavery outside of the States and Slavery
inside of the Sinks, that ull ovtside of the
Sta ts u debatable, aud all made of the
Status is not debateib'e "
Further on he say, "Mr. Pieaiilent, I
ahull not take up the time, of whioh so
much has bf-enoonsuined already, to show
that the cluase which givts to Congress

The Aire of Virtue. No. 3
If tho Ago of Virtue takes its place
among the literary journals oi the day, in
accordance with tbe idea whioh originally
suggested the necessity of such a publi
cation, it will be unique in the character
of its literature; bcoause, to achieve its
mission, it will address itsolf to the high
er thoughts and sentimcnta ouly, ol the
heart and mind. If it fails to make man
wiser, better and happier, in tbe sphere
of its circulation, then will it have ap
peared in vain. That which informs the
understanding and develop? the moral
senso, is the tru wisdom. The relation
that man sustains to the world be lives
in, to himself, and to the author of his
being, are tho inquiries that most concern
him Lcro. As before hinted at, a large
proportion, perhaps the largest proportion
of the literature thrown from the Press at
tho present time, aud sold for money, not
only does not contribute to the ends here
proposed, bat positively tends to lower tho
tone of man' moral as well as bis intel
lectual being, by first failing to present
him with aubjeuls of thought addressed
fo hie bolter nature; and, secondly, by
pandering to his passions and animal pro
penalties. By this kind of reading the
mind is enticed into the regions of fiction
aud fancy, while the stern realities of life
the useful, the really Interesting, all that
from whioh man derives oitber knowledge
or happiness, is neglected, and even be
oomes stale. But I am writing a digger
tation on novel reading, only ao far as to
make tho impression, if possible, that all
the time and money spent iu that way
are a thousand times woise than wasted
To bring together only that kind of
reading whioh tho 's'will contain, will
require no small amount of laboi and re-St-arch.
To bring myself into a literary
a-quaintanoe with the highest order of
the journal of the age, historical, scien
tific, mechanical, moral and religious as
well as to explore atandard and cred'uod
books and to tjcure contributions from
authors whose talents are directed in the
courso the "Age" proposes to move, will
require much time as well as expense;
and such a woik can only be undertaken
and endured, with the oo operation of the
friouds of a correct and healthy standard
of publio sentiment, in regard to the safe
direction of tho intellect and morals of
tbe uprising goneratior.s. The idea con
templated in publishing thi "Age," has
been s theme of deep importance to mc
for many years. A proper appreciation
of the need of such a work by the publio,

The two Virginia Democratic Conven

bodies than might have been expected, as
large numbers of the counties appointed
twenty-five delegates, and some even more
than that number. Instead of having
Conventions numbering thousands thev
are counted by the hundred. Does not

THS SECESSION HOWL AGAIN.
The drift of argument now in Adminis

S'.ates: We hoar but little from that
quarter about waiting for some wrongful
or overt a' ts of the Republicans. If it is
supposed that this sort of talk is to fright
en the country it is a mistake. That it
will produou mischief by firing the South
ern heart for disu.iion measures there can
not be a doubt.

To overtake a thunder ahower, whirl
though it aod outrun it, was th first of
the day's exciting novelties. We saw it
ahead of us, on the prairie, juit as you
see a single blank cloud in the sky, with
sniitihine all around it. It was moving
in the same direction as ourselves, proba
bly at about twenty miles an hour; and
we soon began to overtake it with our bet
ter harnessed thunder and ligbtniug. The
conductor pointed the dark mass out to
me, some ten or fifteen minutes before we
entered the outer skirt of tho shower; and
we wore in a pelting rain, with lightning
and peaU of thunder, for perhaps ten min
utes emermnir in fir weather on the
other side, and leaving the 6torm to lag
after u. like the ' slow coach that it
was! But certainly, it was queer thus
to give thunder and lightning the go-by.
It seemed to me, somehow, anticipatory
of another state ot things, when we go
teleirraph-ine about, at the beginning o
our spirit-travels in the next life, I am
sure I have a vague impression of hav
ing done something of that sort, before
experience ot distancing a well-trained
thunder-cloud being laid away in my
But it is to the wild animals of the
prairie that the swiftness ot the rail-train
is mo.-it inexplicable. Ages upon ages
have established oertain relative rates of
speed between man and the subject races
ot creation-tne mounted hunter oeing tne
fastest pursuer for wbioli the elk and re
indeer, the bear and the prairie-wolf the
fox and the wild-cat, the skunk, otter aud
marten, are at all prepared. The amall
line of tbe rail-track nearly hidden in grass
is not recognized by these wanderers over
the vast plains ot thu West, and while
thinking themselves still safe in their, own
horizonodged wilderness, they suddenly
see the coming of the new monster! It is
a daily experience, of tbe trains ou this
railroad acrost Illinois; to overtake some
one or more of them; and it is curious,
(so tbe different conductors and brake
men all told me,) how none of them stem
to have the sagacity lo escape by running of
at right angle&l Almost invariably they
flce before the pursuer, and are run down
at last, to tall tainting with terror and
exhaustion in thu neighborhood of the
To the wild birds on the prairies the
alarm whittle seems the most formiable
part of it. With tho settler's cat le grazing
loose, it is necessary to Lave the scream
ot tbe pipe unusually sharp and loud;
and thu engineer often pulls the stnnx of
his fearful zenith-piercer when a flock of
wild geese, pigeone, or prairie-hens are
flyinx over. Murder! the voice of the
new monster! To the great saving of tho
huntsman's powder aod shot, half of the
birds, at least, will fall seuaeless to the
ground with pure fright! We saw but
one approach- to a tragedy of this kind

But when he found we were getting loo
