and spontaneous burst of applause, when

We can inform the Journal that Mr.
CL:y is on a visit to the south, and could
not have possibly been there. We hope
that, solar as the 'gamblers' an 1 blasphem

As to the 'whoremongers,' Sic., we can
only say. th..t we understand there was a
great crowd of whig members
of Congress
present, «t the time. Probably they cm
