A Letter from Henry Clay Hitherto In
We 6ad in the Wat-bingion Union a letter from
Beat-jr Clay lot gentleman fa thatciij, which nnw
(or the fi-t tiau appeM fn print. It relit je to
the treaty of Gh'Ot, in h ch Mr. City wn one of
the o-troiiiitfr). It will be read with interest, as
it accounts for whkt Beemt to us a wnpular defect
in lLat celebrated treaty. It will be remembered
that the war between the countries that formed
ibis' treaty, grew out ofthe cUim of maritime
rightJ, an 4 jet, strange to say, the subject is not
mentioned in thi treaty.
A almilar omir Jion occurs in the treaty of Aixla
Chaprlle, between ' England, Holland and Austria,
on one side, sod Fpain and France on tbe other.
Tha war between thee eovereigntiea originated in
the right tliiined by Englu-b euljrcta to ravigate
tbe American seas, without bein eurj -cte I to
search, and yet when the treaty of 1748 was en
tired into by tbe bellig. rant powers, tbe subject
wbich ciusi d tbe war was t ot mentioned.
Mr Clay's letter ejplains trie dofgino; of the
queeiioi- in the treaty of Ghent. Doubtless simi
lar reasons existed at that of Aix-la-Chap. lie.
Washimgtob, D.cember 14 1889.
DA Rta; In reply to yoor I. tu-r ii quiting
why a cUuae fi not ins-rteJ in tlietie.ty of
Ghent guarding againrt t te future BtuUt, impress
ment of American eamen, I have to siy that you
will recollect th t the peace of Europe was tLeu es
tablished, and the Unit, d States alone were at war
with Great Briuin. We were rot in a c mriition
to dictate the terms of peace. Imprexrm ot form
ed one of the top'cs of negotiation, but Gr.at Bri
t.in waa not preprr-d to renounce the pneice of
iu.pr. rinZ, as she aid, ht r own u j eta. We did
not thit.k it iice.arv to continue ttie war tt com
p. I her to renounce if, if we could compel her, for
various reasons: lt. If there were a eeneral p. ace
there would be no ii pre -anient, whi-h only tArs
place in war, or in preparation for war. 2 1 It Was
ot ocMeary to have a-ty treaty eiipulatiou to
exempt us from the practic, our right to ex rnp
tioo dep Dfliug upon higher eround than any trt-a-ty;
ao.f gily, If Great Biitaiu phould ren-w the
practice' of iuipriasiueut we could prosecute a Dew
war with more vigor and more ample n.ens than
we could continue the existing war, exhausted aa
wa then were. In point of fact she has not
renewed the practice of impressment against us,
and I think net, r will.

Mr. Douglas Rutherford, of Oakland, Jefferson
county, Wisconsin, stood near Capt. Ilerudoa and
the chief engineer at the time the latter piopoeed
to leare tbe steamer. . Ashley went up to the cap
tain and intimated that he was going in that boat.
Capt. ii. rep'ied that he had no right to do so, and
that it was his duty to stick to his post. The en
gineer said: If yoo will let me go, I will bring
back the two boats, and all tbe boats that cao be
reached from the brig. "Capt. II. expressed his
fears to trust the engineer, but the Liter agaiu
pleaded bar f, promised to exert himself in secur
ing assistance, and Capt. IL. filially consented, when
Ashley immediately seia.-d a ropj and let hiuself
down into the boat, and was foilowed by a piSien
ger. No sooaer had the latter reached tbe boat,
than Ashley drew a dirk, and swore that he would
etib the man unless he would jimp e-verrjoarJ.
Cape H. hearing the remark made by Ashley,
cried : '"Step there you must not do that."
As soon as the boat pushed off, Capt. Ii. walked
forward on the steamer and called after tbe engi
neer: ".Vow I will depend upon your returning with
the Doau, and tbe eogioeer in reply said: "You
Bay depend on your tile on nsy returning," but be

buyers at $7 for November delivery up to within
the last ten days of Anguu and but few sell, rs,
there are now more sellers than buyers at thi rate.'
Tbe question wbeth. r the next hog crop will be a
-long" or "short" one is being generally discus-ed
ind opinions are given on both eidea freely, and
opported by plausible logic, to sy tbe least of it.
Letters from various sections are being pUced be
fore the public, uting that the bogs are dying by
thousand in all directions, and th.t in many pUces
there are not enough 1 ft to propagate tbe species;
in other places wo bear the animals are unusually
abundant and well taken care of. In soo-e pi ices
it is stated hb the greater pertinat iy that all ex
cept pigs the merest pigs, were slaughtered last
winter and spring, pork beiiw so higb. and then
aain we are told that those not slaughtered in
inter were during tbe Iat summer. Here an
tuere we find communications in tbe ppers from
correspond' nts of mercantile agencies siatiog that
there are very few hogs in tne country. Bui when
it is rtcollected tbat these correspondents are
county lawyers, who spend thir time '"roosting
ibout county court-bouses," watching for ciieuta,
it will be seeu tbat their opinion regarding tbeho
or other crops as exceedingly worthless. Deale rs
and all int. rented in the Drovi ton uniket will al
ways find it safe to assume ti.eae are, every year,
hogs enough in tbe country; tWer may be le s st
one time tbau at another, but there is always
enough to fatten so as to tnik a long bog crop,

n illians of ibis ae on the lt of April, so th tt it
will be seen tbe supply of the animals is amplr-.
But then it i said, and it is true tbat bogs are bi
ing swept away by tbe "bog cholera" at a Irignt
fuf rate This, however, is confined to a f w lo
caliti s, cbi. fly in the vicinity of distilleries, ana
we feel safe iu saying tb.it the whole number car

any p. roon upon the rtfl .ciion that in Kentucky,
Ohio, Indiana and Illinois there were ovrr six mil
lion bogs six mouths old and upwards on the latuf
last April. We think we may asruiue now, wiib
out fear of contradiction, that the supply of hogs i3
ample, ine next qu-8ti03 is, willttnre beaUr
or a small number of them brought to market. In
order to rrive at a correct coialuaiou with rtfer
ence to this, it is necessary for us to examine into
tbe springs of human actioua a'ld see what men
will do or not do as a general thing under certain
It is sife and reasonable to suppose tbat tbe far
mer will turn hi attention to tbe cultivation of tht
which, from tbe evidenc. s before him or the induce
ment held out, promises the most ample reward for
bis labor; aud the more overwii. Iming are tbe evi
dences in fivor of the profits likely to accrue, tbe
more assiduity will be exercised in the prod uc ion
of tbe article. Now let us see whit are tbe induce
ment to "cultivate" hogs, and what is the supply
of the m. ana with which they can be prepared lor
market. Since the 1st of last January, hogs have
ruled higher than for along seiiea ot year.-', aud the
iemaud for them baa been active, couxequeutly the
inducements to breed them and take care of tnem
have been stronger than they have been for many
years ; and tbe result of ibis is thown by tbe asses
sor's return we publish. The spring aa 1 summer,
though lite, have "proved unu-ually favorable for
all kinds of veg. tation ; everything suitable for food
for man and beast grew in the greatest piofusion
throughout tbe length md breadth of the laud; the
wbeat, barley, rya, oats and bay crops now gather
t'd arc the most abundant that can b-i wei imagin
ed, and tbe corn and potato crops now nearly ma
lured, exceed, both as regards qaautity and quali
ty, any ever gathered in the country. During the
whole summer and up to the preseot time strong
inducements have existed to take the best eare of
hoS, aud uone can suppose fjr a moment tnat the
b-bt care ha not been taken of them ; aud more
erpeciady, wheu such ample meauS exist with which
to do thi.'. So theu here we find ibe atrugesl in
ducement to breed aud tike care of bogo, tbe last
nine months, tbat has ever existed before; and
aloug with this greatest ajunjaoce of food wuh
which to fatten tbi m. Toe result, then, must be a
la rue increase in tbe u umber brought to market aud
a "long bog trop."

by this time I have entirely forgotten c y promise
t-ioce I left the dear old Rocky City, (where I aee
by tbe papera you are all broiling at 75 degrees,
whilst up here we find blanket indispeuaatle, and

then; but I do assnre you I have been trying my
best, and wsiting for something, like Micawber, "to
turn up," until I began to to ink it's no use waiting
any longer, and I have just stolen away to-night
tdmy quiet little room to chat a while with you
Tbe ycung folks are lauijhing, playing an 1 sing

tut without, the r dn is pouring down, in -tocreuis,
and 'tia thundering and Jightuiugas if all MacbeihV
witch- a were at their incantations with might and
main, aud the very windows of leaveu were open
ed in a second deluge. Bui it la tbt ti;ne I love
best to write. The rain soothes and lulls my shat
tered nerves to repose; the thunder sings a glori
ous song to my il j s pi. it, and I love, too, to watch
the lightning's vivid flash, as it illumines the dark
angry clou Js with grand and terrible b. auty. I
hve often thought bow much I could enjoy a
storm at sea, and wondered if I ever should real
ize that pleasure. Aud what a glorious thing a
rainbow ir; do you not think so? We had a most
biiliiant one th ia afternoon, eptnuing with its mag
nificent arch, of royal cri-naon, purple, and gold,
the entire horizon, until I almost fancied I could
see the angels descending the shining pathway
ouce mote to earth. But, I declare, I have strange
ly forgotten roy-elf, sod gone completelv op in tbe
clouds, inrtead of telling you, as I intended, about
a little excursion I made the otner dy up to Man
chester, to see the ruins of the old "iort," the falls,
the mills, the Copperas cave, and other curiosities,
in which the vicinity abounds.
Well, then, jjt fancy a merry little party, con

magn:ceut specimen of humanity, Col. Matt M.,
of S , as our cavalier, all epee.ing along in the
WcMinuville cars for ilai cbster, where we arriv
ed before we thought we hd got fairly started.
We found Dr. II. at the Depot, who marched us
off, to tho only hotel the town cn boust of", kept by
a r? kind gentleman indeed, Mr. P. (who lias a
family of tbe sweeteat, lovt-lk-ct little daughters I
ever Siw) Here we had the pleasantest rooms
the boose afforded, and the most delicious water I
ever tasted. After resting and refreshing our
selves a few hours we began to look about us. The
town is a much larger and handsome placehao I
had any idea of, with a large court-bouse, several
stores, tdce private dwellings, aud two very neat
chuiche nearly co.npl.'ted. Society, I am told, i
very go)d, aud I have no doubt of if, as we became
acq'i limed with sev- ral vrry agreeanle ladies and
gentlemen, during our short stay, and bad we re
mained longer I presume we should hare utet ma
Well as I was most impatient to commence ray
exploring expedition, we called a committee to de
vise ways and means of transportation, but we soon
found we could only procure one horse, (but you
are not to infer it is a ; Arss town, for all that !)
wbich was unanimously voted tome; butl (corned
the idea of being mounts'), whilet the others walk
ed, aud I vowed I would walk too. So off we
started, the Dr., who was to act as our Cicerone,
Liuraand myself leading tbe van, (the other ladies
not venturing to go,) leaving the widow and the
Colonel to bring up the rear, and to sober us down
a littlj whenever we got too much excited by the
new an i beautiful tcenery around us, and here, bye-Ihe-nye,
I msy ss well tell you tbat the Colonel ia
eaid to have a very interesting case in Court up
here, tbat requires bis presence almost every week,
and as be is considered a first rate lawyer, and
pleads with much eloquence, tact and ability, it is
thought he ia iu a fair way of gaiuing his cause,
more especially as hia assistant counsel, is a cer

Tbe Doctor, who U familiar with all the locali
ties, cirridd us along by the country Acidemy, a
plain old brick house, in tbe midst of a beautiful
grave, with the quiet dea 1 alumberiog on one side,
and a beautiful little crystal stream purling along
ou the other; a glorious placa to dream and pjetixi
io, is it notf Then over this lovely little stream
let, on a ru ie bridge made by a fallen tree, up the
"teep banks again, and on thro a cool shady, wood
the path bordered by beautiful wild fl jwere, wbich
we were continually stepping to gath t, till my
pickets were quite fulh The Doctor found a su
perb cluster of tbe white king lilly, as they are
called here, and wbich are the most beautiful and
exquisitely fragrant things I have ?ver se-n.
Tuu we went on and on, findi'ig something to
pi ase and inter-t us at every st p, and forgetting
entirely to be weary, cnti' we re.cb d tbe ruins of
the old 'Fort'' yes, oi dear sir, I have at la?t
se.n this mouldering memento of a people, a nation
perhps, long mice passed away, leaving this sio-'
gular woik of thir bands to peiph-x and harraS
succeeding generations whh doubts, turmises, and
sp culations, as tbey have, all that have ever seen
them heretofore. These strange and wonderiul
ruins, cover it ia eid, Irom 40 to 80 acres, being a
narnw pjiotof Ianl between the two forks ot Duck
rivir; the walls were of beaten fiiutatooe and earth
and must have been of ioiruenae heig it' and thick-"
nens, judging from their appearance now, au t the
liuh alteration observabls since first discovered
by the whites. Then, the Indians kaew as little of
th- ir origin as we do note; the only account they
would give wa a dim tradition of their beirg the
work of a great 'nation; but nothing definite ever
has been or ever will, be known of their history.
A to their being th work of De Soto, as some have
suggested, th U canuot be, fjr various reasons,
whicb I could give, bat I think it unnecessary, as
so much has beeo said and written ou the subject
by abl -r pens than mine. Tbe main entrance, or
gate, as it is called, is tbe moat sinful. r part of the
s ructure; oo each side are large mounds, and just
facing wbere we would suppose the gate to have
opened are three more, with the trace of ditches
alii! plainly visible. In tome places tha wall is yet
very high, with in mense treta growing on them
and the mounds, and in every direction along th
Kortb-westera wall (aa I eupposi It mar be called)
is th trace of a ditch, tbat it is thought the ri' I
once flowed Into; and on tbis side too, are tbe rnot
interesting of tb fI!a that oo the South fork be
ing rpoiltd by Robcrisot' miil and di-iiUery, (a
destruction of tbia wild, romantic and beul ful
ceoery, d. ej Iy to be depbr.d). The interior of
the Fort is a level area beneath who.-e rurfae per
haps somertlc might yet be found, elucidating
these long burled mysteries of tie past. .1 always

a large rotk, locking the very picture of astonish

hir.Cf if anybody bad been looking on, tbe Doctor
wading and poking about under the rocks and fig
ures for hi? glasses, Mrs. 11 and myself stand
ing with sympathy and concern depicted ia our fa
ces, fearing they bad been swept don by tbe cur
rent of the larpe fall below, and the redoubtable
Colonel flourishing his cans preparatory to ao oo
slaugbt among, the fishes I suppose. At la-t sure
enough he spied them oo a heap of drift, quietly
f joying our perplexity, and fibbed th. moot to the
great joy of tbe Doctor, who for S.-.I? keeping, put
iher-i inhi-ivest peckeb But in his galuntry iu
titling a dry footing for Miss "Clara" la they weut
again, end j ist as I had got safely on a big rock
where I coul l ei joy the prompt ct at my ease, th
cry was, "Well my sp etudes are gone this time,
snd in went tbe poor Doctor, psddling about in trie
water after them again, but fonunatily it was ao
clear the unlucky things were soon discovered and
this time deposited out of danger.
I fear I cannot give you even a faint idea of tbe
appearance tbe rivi r and the scenery present here.
it is so entirely different from any tiling I bavj ever
seen before, wildly, grandly beautiful, savage
and picturvsque seeming more like' the shattered
fragments of an earthquake, than anything else I
can imagine, all jumbled and heaped up together,
aud perfectly indescribable. An immense basin,
whose sides are stupendous cliffs, clothed to their
summits with trees, shrubs and wild flowers, ana
iu the centre of which, waveless and calm, sleep
the dark green waters, said to be of unknown
depth. Out of this grand reservoir, tbe river
again makes its way over huge nvsf sea of rock and
othr obstructions to the second fills, some distance
below, still more magnificent than the first, but
very similar in detail. B low this again, th" South
fork conies sweeping down below the point of the
fort, almost to a juncture, and then turns gracefully
aad coquettishly away, Jut by the Copperas Cure,
forming a beautiful little inland, aud lb-0 unit. -a its
tilvery waves, I'ke some loving gentle nature, to
its more boisterous companion.
We lore ourselves rtluctautly away from this
enchanted spot just aa the decli .ing suu was throw
ing hia biighl golden arrows thro the dark green
m.s of foliage crowning the lofty cl ffs, opposite
to where I was seated, oo a proj -eting framet of
rock as far down as I could possibly venture, with
the foaming wattrs dushing their snowy tprayover
me, and quite oblivous ot time and spac fitiiving
to cot jure from its ceatt les roar some myotic
voice that should tell me SJtni thing of the past,
give me some tidings of tbe wouUrous people whose
mighty woik lay all around me, aud si-fin- for
the wisdom tbat could penetrate tbeir strange mys
Crossing the area of the fort, we passed below
the dam, over to our fellow-citiaen, A. B. Bober
.sou'a mill and distillery, beautiiully situated, but
spoiling all the romatice of the scenery by its association-.
I cou d tolerate and forgive tbe mill, on
account of the great benefit it i to the surround
ing country, but not tbe distil ery; and I do hope
our fri nd, who deserves su teas for hia enteiprie
ing spirit in every thing else, will reconsider this,
a id convert it inio somelbiug more beneficial to tbe
cause of bummity.
Our return led us along by his quiet, rosy-looking
little cottage, not far from town, where we ar
rived just in time for supper, wbich we eijoyed
with a keen relish, I do assure you After a night
of exquisitj repose, I felt quite anxious, Sunday
morning though It was, to vieii the cave, and Dr.
J , of Manchester, a very pleasant gentleman in
deed, offering to be com- my escort, we were soon
mounted and away and a glorious canter we had
too the cool uiouutaio bretze acting as a tonic oo
my lmguid nerves and spirits, until I fear tbe Dr.
would have thought I bail been drinking something
bet-ile the delicious water abounding in M. if be
bad not known I was a "good Templar."
The Copperas cave is a great natural curiosity
though why it is called a cive I cannot imagine,
as it is entirele open being a vast Sc:o.i-cirt le, or
deep dell, to which you dec nd by a very precip
itous path. To yoor right, over a lofty ledsje, fails
a clear stream, that when the season is not so dry,
forms a splendid cascade. The ledge extends and
widens over bead, until in fome places it mast be
at least a hundred feet in height and uear the same
in breadth, forming a most magnificent amphithea
tre, with a clear and distinct echo. This vast roof
looks like the thick twisted roots of trees, that have
become petrified, and about half wav between it
and tbe ground is tbe celebrated Alum Spring,
said to be a sovereign remedy for sore eyes and
many other diseases.
The water is strongly impregnated with alum
(which you may g-ther in a pure slat from the
crevices in tbe rocks.) sulphur and Iron, and aom-
say copperas, also. I should like very much to see
an analysis of its components, as I should think it
must possess great curative properties. It is said

After taking diink of it, which ia very cool and

little valley down to the river th it was glitering 1 ke
as lv. r thread through its reen bordering of ebiube

aud Interesting localities. What a fat-hionable place
it would soon becoiu- for our cilia -us ao easily ac
