Speak Amos Petfog He says :
"It has been intimated by some that it Is
bad policy to send lawyers to the Legisla'
ture. surely none would think, in this en
lightened age, of sending old farmers, who
are the owners of the soil, and directly in
terested, and who would of course, make
flaws for the benefit of the farming commu
nity,end perhaps never think of the interest
of the lawyer. " farmers are use
ful to do our labor and drudgery, and they
make useful clients, but who except a num
skull ever thought of sending the client to
the Legislature to make laws to be expound
ed and enforced by lawyers."
And yet M. avers that his pets have not
attempted to array classes. Now for the
next charge. He says thatneither Petfog
nor urubbin Hoe attempted to prejudice Mr
nenaerson in me puouc mina, Decease ne
was poor. Let us have tha evidence, ret-
fog jays and he is not knave enough
deny that it was meant for Henderson that
"In the next place, I do not own a foot of
land or any other immoveable property in
the county, have no interest of my own to
represent, therefore can and will give tlie
whole of my attention to tbe interest of oth
ers." Is not the proof overwhelming r Are
you not guilty Amos Is he not guilty M ?
Let tbe public judge between the "unmask
ed hypocrisy" nf X. and the "unmasked
falsehoods" of M. Out of his own mouth
and by his own witnesses is he condemned.
The truth makes some men mad, if it effects
M. in that way, let him nurse his wrath to
keen his anger warm ; be should have known
that these things would have been burled
back at him by one who has no ambition "to
keep out of the reach of danger."
X. has never ridiculed the misfortunes of
a sick man, never applied an epithet to any
candidate, enn vet. rt aeeme inconsistent
that M. should complain of vulgarism after
the specimen he has given us lu his chaste
production. All is not well with M., that
awful machine that gulntined so many whig
candidates last summer until the streets of
Bowling Green ran red with blood and
which has been wheeled away from the Me
tropolis of Pike, to avoid the odour of the
triumvirate, to distant parts of the county,
won t work : some wheel is out of place,
some spring broken, and all their Cash can't
do it up crown.
M. is to be pitied ; indignation, Indian
massacre, tomahawk, scalping knife and
bloody drama, dance through Ins whole
communication in all the maze of nonsensi
cal confusion these are the evidences of
a mind not at if rt with itself perhaps the
gloomy forerunners of a terrible overthrow
which is soon to come, which is destined in
its hurricane fury to prostrate Whiggery in
Pike to batter down with its Hurculean
arm the fiitherto strong fortress in which
false Gods have been worshiped, and false
Priests have ministered at the altar. Too
long already have the Democracy of the
land slumbered at their post ; the lethargy
which so long folded them in is now gone
a beacon light blazes from every hill top a
voice proclaiming their triumph comes from

For the Banner.
Mr. Editor, Yourcorrespondent "Pike"
wishes to know, whether all the signatures
to the call made upon Mr. Penix were ap
pended before it was announced in the Sev-eoty-Six
that, that call would appear. I
hardly expect that any one will say that
they were. But your correspondent though
he seems to have caught a slight glimpse of
the doings of the " Clique. " is far from
knowing all the mancevers, in respect to
placing their present candidate on the track.
When they wished to choak off their first
candidate, because they knew he would be
beaten, you know they made him say he
was "sic" and caused-him to publish his
declination. Now Mr. Penix Jiad consent
ed to run, before Doctor Crain withdrew
and a communication was deposited in the
office of the Sexenty-Six, calling oa. Mr.
Penix to become a candidate before the
withdrawal of the Doctor was-published.
Thir was some three weeks before tbe pub
already consented1 to rtrnvi aisd a call nsca .
him bad been placed in tbe office some three i
weeks before, still it must nave tuaLinaattt

He has taken this course because it is
known in every part nf, the ' cotiujy by ,t
means nf the circalation. of the 'Banner'
that Mr. Murray Is from principle, an open
advocate of. Mr. Henderson's election.
f the case was reversed, and "Mr. Pej

does, so that there could be no chance of
creating prejudice in that quarter, and Mr. '
Murray occupied the position which Mr.
Pepper now does, this man would be mean
enough to shape his language so as to contra
diet what he now says. This base appeal to
prejudice will be scouted by every high
minded man, ami if Mr. Pepper posesses'
the spirit, which I hope and believe he does
if he has the pride of a man, and one spark
of resentment he will meet it as it deserves,

After making several other false state-.
ments in a communication of less than twen-.

that Mr. Henderson will be beaten at tbe
polls " because he it not qualified for the of

words the people of the whole county will

qualified for the office I !! Then-in -tber-name

must be convinced, that as a
public speaker, he has no superior in tha
county, and perhaps no one in the state
has shown more promise of future useful-:

the lie to tbe assertions of this scribbler by .
