Wa hara. the pleasure of announcing to
ear reader, that we "are ttill in the land of
the living, though that ngly, illnatured.big
beaded, long-eared animal, the pack horse
of the Clique made such an awful kick at
ni to the last number of the Seventy-S
Irritated by his ineffectual eflForts to work
the machinery of the clique, and goaded by
'42 and its operation,. was peculiarly clear.
He showed nn in (rlarinir colors! to the dco-
ple ofPike. that stupendous system ofrrrf, '?&t&hnTree Territory!
in which by the aid of Trammum andVseci-
fie duties, they are actnally taxel! in some
cases two hundred per cent, under a. pre
tended duty of only fifteen or twenty per
oent. On the Bank question Mr. ? Porter
took issue .with his party. He1 declared
that the currency was now ni alieaHhy
condition, and that he shonld be -opposed
to the recharter of a National Bank He
was. witling to let well enough -elonei !ndt
the lash which bad been so freelr applied to should nnt he, villinv ta tia&ar arkh thaiMctf-
him and his associates of ,oiai4io-reny
. Mybj tiwg64 tiae"nsf Pie, through
the columns of the Banner, this Jong eared
creature has commenced a most farious
kicking jt" a shadow , which in his blind
frenzy he imtftnned, to be a conclave of
Iocoocq with big whips in their hands ready
to lash .him for his dirty work ir. behalf of
the clique. In bis agony he brays out about
a conspiracy of Vlocofoco" scribblers, ,wri-j
-ten of cvmmunications "concocted in the
' same conelave, having the same object in
WW" of (he "same tune'? and "set to the
same measure.' 'The editor of the Ban-ner"-
he brays with emphasis, "is one of the
conclave had Las written-at least one of the
commnnicaVidns." " But let us say to this'
long-eared, big-headed horse that all these
Uungs ara mere phantoms injured .up by
- lus owndistempered, brab. . ; , That iOl three
of thsMauMoation!'were -written by
different individuals, (not all of "the Same
coBclaye11 or; 'neighborhood,) neither of
whom , knew anything of , the intention of
ethr, of the others .to write j and that neith
er editor of .the Bannerf knew anything a-
bout either of the - commonications t till it
Was prepared for the press.1 This we are
prepared to prove by-the writers them
sefres; threes high minded and honorable
men who, have no wish, to ,(b Jiejit out of
all .danger." , Now if the afcisalf ' long
eared pack horse, is disposed toMouhtwhat
we hare stated above, we tre ready to prove,
cither yahe,iias stated' that Which he knew1
to be false in letter . and spirit, or that be
t as Ncklesrij epoUn of as tact, that which
be knew nothmg about Let him take eith
T horn of -the dilemma. and we think his!
big ears snttit fiop down, and he stand in a

Bay congratulated the Democracy'of Pike
upon having con verted, Mr. Porter on this
question: and thought that if be could
keep him out of the hands of Mr. Broad
head and the "regency" for a "while, he
should be able to make a pretty good "lo
cofoco" of him. ' Bay's, reply to Porter
upon the queslion qf the late war with Mex
ico was extremely se vere. He read an ahti
war editorial published jii the Missouri
'Journal while under the control of Porter,
to which he replied in language, . every
word of which, seemed to raise a blister.
But .through : his whole reply, masterly as
it was, there was a degree' of courtesy ex
tended towards his opponent, which could
-a '(i. . . e 1 t l ' . '
nut ma id inane a lavouraoie impression up
on all who heardliiin. ,Wel! may the. Demo
crats be proud of; their principles, and
proud of this champion selected to bear
the banner of those principles.
The editor of the Sexentj-Six says that
"one of the editors" of the Banner is
"shrewdly suspected" of being the author
of the communication Signed "A Jefferson,
Jackson,' Cass 'and .' Butler ' Democrat"
The 'suspicion is false, and the insinuation
neither "shrewd" nor wittyJ The author
of that communication does not live'within
teaniles of either editor ot the Bannt-r
and neither of them was advised of its con
tents before it was preparnd for the press
He is a nigh minded and honorable, man
whose standing in the community is fully
equal to that of the editor of the Seventy
Six ; and as he has no wish to "be kept out
of all danger.' we can give his name at any
time.. Can the editors of the Seventy-Six
say as much of their "communication signed
M."? Can they say, that neither editor of
that paper had anything to do with pirepai
ing it for-the press? .. Aye or no, Messrs.
