From the Iff O. ,National,
Highly Important Correspondence. (
June 7, 1847. J I
Dear Sir?As you are our candidate for c
the Presidency, so constituted by the peo- ,
pie, you are therefore, open to all sorts of
impt rtinent questions. Your privacy is to be ,
invaded, and you are to .suffer yourself to be ,
ovamincd, as if you were a simple wit- ,
fness in the hands of un indefinite number nl ,
j,harp lawyers. I um one of the people, ,
and being an exceedingly small specimen, I .
have made it a practice for years past, for (
the sake of notoriety, to endeavor to fasten j
my self on the tail of some great man, who ,
happened for the time, to be in the ascendency
1 am opposed to your elevation to
any office, and would not vote for you, were
vou, in the language of a late Locofoco Senator
of this State, "pure enough to sit on the
right hand of the Throne of Heaven." Yet
1 should be exceedingly delighted if you
would answer the questions I put to you, in
this letter, not only for the purpose of having
them published agsinst you, if they can
be so used, in case you are a candidate; but
also, for the sake of getting my name before
the people as having done something to assist
in misrepresenting your real sentiments.
If I accomplish this, and you are defeated, 1,
am sure of some small office as a reward for
my ingenious services.
I wish to know, firstly, whether von are
in favor of putting corn in both ends of a
bag that is sent to mill horse back, or doyou
believe in the modern system, invented by
Bob Walker, who used a large stone in
one end, to balance the grain at the other?
Secondly, are you in favor of mules having
colts? Thirdly, ate you in favor of crossing
the nutmeg nielloo with the pumpkin.
A prompt and definite answer to these
questions, will oblige
Your fellow citizen.

hut not felt. We repeat what we have before
asserted, that Gen. Taylor, from peculiar
circumstances, is as much independent
of the support oi the press, as a candidate
for the Presidency, as he is independent of
it for his position as a military man, and for
his authorship of his immortal despatches.
General Taylor is the creator of his own
fortunes?he appeals directly to the people;
ami his glorious achievements and sterling
honesty, being known of all men, need no
endorsement from leaders, or the press.
General Taylor has impressed himself upon
ine Bueciions ui nit* lowuesi tnmaies 01 me
cottage, an sensibly as are his victories en- y
. graven upon the minds of the rich and pow- c
crful. The humblest laborer in the field,
or the hard working man in the crowded I
city, that papers never reach, know and 4
love Gen. Taylor, and it is a marvel indeed |
that die serret of his popularity should be j
Itnsuirtlerstoad, and that the common touch- ^
elone of popularity, that applies to other
individuals, should be brought to bear upon
him. Conventions may, for expediency, '
agree to call a umu ? leader, but the peo- '
pie, without such aid, have placed their *
favorite in the van. I
Supei final indeed are the ideas of those t
who think that General Taylor's popularity (
alone rests upon I is conduct ia the battle- 1
field. \V e consider tint die glorious array ! ,
of Victories from Kurt Harrison to Ruenai
VjitC, such victories a? crown the military j'
jepntatioh of no other Irving man, were but

Camp near Monterey, )
July 9th 1847. ]
Rtsjjected Sir.? Your very important
communication came to hand in due course
of mail and baggage wagon transportation.
1 read it with profound pleasure. I was delighted
with the independent expression of
your sentiments, and the laudable motives
that induced you to place them before me
in writing. The government has kept ine so
exceedingly busy of late in doing nothing,,
that 1 have not had time to write to you as
promptly as I could have desired, nor can 1
as explicitly, when I sat down to the task,
as the importance of the subject demands.
Your first question?I shall answer them
all categorically?is one that involves a favorite
system of exchange, that would be
indelicate for me, in my present position, to
enlarge upon, but 1 will say passing, that it
is belter to have o stone in one end of a
meal bag than in the bladder. To your
second question I answer, I am in favor of
tnules having colts, provided it suits the
mules, and>don't interfere with the vested
rights of the people. Your third question
involves a point upon which 1 have many
doubts?crossing die meilon with the pump*
kin, certainly enlarges the mellon, but it will
require a large share of the attention of
philosophers to show it don't ruin the nutmeg.
With high respect, 1 remain,
Your most obedient servant,
Z. Taylor.

F.very hour developes clearly the future
with regard to Gen. Taylor's position, as a
candidate for the Pr"sidency, while the politicians
arc more clearly showing their weak- ''
ness at the same time. That portion of the ?
Whig pres.c that is governed by cliques, in- ii
stead of being the expounders of the senti- n
ments of the masses, is clamoring for party 9
organisation, ami for Gen. Taylor's avowal Q
that he will be a party President; and they n
very foolishly insinuate, that if the old hero
don't come into their views, they will abandon
him. A portion of the Democratic press,
equally fond of power, and determined to a
rule or ruin, have the temerity to abuse e
Geneial Taylor outright. The Democratic I
Whig journals, and a majority of the Independent
Democratic papers, either come out c
boldly and endorse the expressed will of the v
people towards Gen. Taylor, or remain si- e
lent, ready to put their shoulders to the
wheel the moment the contest begins. Papers
inimical to Gen. Taylor may publish '
as many articles as they please, similar to
the one that recently appeared in the Boston 1
Atlas, and argue therefrom that the Whigs
are not. going to support Gen. Taylor, but 1
it will have but a mortifying effect upon, i
not only the Atlas, hut its admiring endor- ,
eers, for they will all find, in the result at j

The unsettled stale of the times?the Exe

vi'h Mexico?the accidental demands in for
iign countries for our agricultural products
ipptar to be changing the steady and health'
:ourse of business into one of uncertain specu
ation, from which much evil may result
The foreign demand fur products has slitnulu
ed speculation, ami we learn from the Ban.
ters' Magazine, that the Banks of !\'ew York
tnder the influ x of specie, the increase of for
iign shipments, and incoming of goods, had
n ninety days, increased their loans in amoiui
en per cent., and their issues fourteen pe
:ent. . "
With the increase of foreign goods we di
lot obtain even a corresponding increase u
evenuc; for we have "a Taiifl' which re
|uiresihe iinporlation of one hundred million
d goods to produce the same revenue wliicl
eveniy-two millions produced iu 1845--.'
Willi the prospect of an abundant harvest n
Europe, we necessarily must look for a laliiii)
iff in this foieigu demand; with this injury ti
nechanical labor in our own oountrv, we wil
lot have an equal home demand j and these
vilh our increased product, will probabl
lanse n steal fall in price.
At ihe same time that we are thus, so rapid
y creating a foreign debt, at the rate c
)ii/>,8l 9,949, in seven months, we are not in
leallhy stale otherwise. We are engaged in
foreign war, of unknown unntinuance?i
var, too, which is causing immense drains o

hat we have already created a domestic deh

ireasing at the ratio of near $100,000 pi r day
When this war will be?can be, ended, is no

Whilst the influence on the business of th

foreign debt o( over fiftyJive millions, and
domestic national debt of forty millions, does i

jp old organizations, nnd bring togethe
tew and beautiful combinations. Tlier
will be a purity in the moral and politicu
ttmosphere at Washington when he is a
[he head of affairs, such as existed in Wash
ington's time. The people throughout th
country will then be relieved from excite
ment?they will cease to frtl that there i
a government; lor it will then, as it eve
should, dispense its blessings, like the gen
tie dew, quietly but equally upon all. Th
people know nnd feel all this ; and tha
press, and that faction, that attempts to sten
the current, must either be saved by comin;
into the tide, or be overwhelmed in th
abortive attempt to arrest it.
Oh Thou, who art the soul of mysteries '
Whose presence fillelh up the far confines
Of that unbounded land, Infinity!
Who holdeth in thy hand the universe,
And tuneth all the spheres to harmony,
Grant us conceptions worthy of thy greatness.
The feeble mind of man, bow'd down to dust?
Clogg'd with dull sense, and full of earthbori
Cannot soar up to hold commune with thee.
Thou knowest all the secrets of creation :
The smallest nook is ever clear defined ;
And unseen myriads, blent with azure air,
Which.man's weak eye hath never yet discerned
Up to the seraphs darting 'round through space
And yet thy creatures comprehend thee not.
The great Archangels veil their blinded eyes
To Uriel, who dwelleth in the sun,
Before thy face. Eternity's pure lamp!
Gabriel cannot fathom the vast cycle
Wherein revolves thy throne. His wondrous ag?
A babbling infant's, when compared to thine.
Thou art a riddle to all tilings but thyself;
For who can be historian to God ?
Who can cleave the frozen path of chaos,
When nought existed but a dismal blank,
And thou, the.uncreated, wert alone
The ray less, cheerless, monarch of all space?
What an enigma to o'erwearied thought!
Fountain of all majesty?all goodness!
The one I AM! Intellect's vast centre!
Whose span of life is long Eternity ;
Whose home, that shoreless sea, Infinity.
The hosts of heaven?the hosts of nether worlds
All feel thy glory, measured out in love ;
And yet the bounteous giver is unknown,
Save through the presence of his holy works.
Father Supreme ! if thou wert blotted out
Of that vast concourse drinking life front thee,
How would the drear, the horrid void, be filled i
The uncreated locked in the arms of death!
My soul shudders at such a monstrous thought
My tortured fancy sinks heneath the weight
Of this unnatural, terrific scene.
Where now is dwelling harmony and truth,
One universal throb of black uespair
Would be the dumb language of creation.
Who could lead forth Arcturus in his might,
Or boldly guide the clustering Tleiades?

I rI1HI8 l>at been the secret principle of loo many ^
X ?l *he wholesale dealers irt Teas up to this time,
| and they have practised the moat shameful impoaition
| on the Country Merchant without any fear of delection.
Hut a new era >n the Tea Trade has come and j,
Pekin Tea Company claima the honor of its intro- t)
i ductinn. They were (he first to raise the banner of ^
| Reform, on which it has inscribed the simple words: u
A complete revolution has been the consequence, j'
Let consumers of Tea everywhere look at what we | J
have done. I :
I hi. We were the first to send them Teas that
used to be called too good Cor them before.
2d. We have driven out the market a vust amount
of trush, and introduced a better clan* of Tea* than
haw ever yet been sold. Importers of Tea often come c
to ua to get for their own use, and for their friends, u
fine qualitieM they can find nowhere else.
3d. We have reduced prices mote than 26 per ct.,
both in Black and Green Teas. The wholesale Jj
grocers say we are ruining the trade and call us '
humbugs. This we have done already, and now
wee what we are ready to do.
1st. We will sell Teas by the single chest, half lj
chest or 14 pound box, at the same prices that '[
wholesale grocers pay to the importers when they
buy by the hundred packages. * jj
2J. The wholes ile grocera allow only 13 or at
mo. t 14 pounds tare to the half chest. This is a 'f
cheat. We allow, iu most instances, 16 and 16 j*1
lbs. tare on the aame.
3d. We hereby undertake to sell every kind of f'
Tea, from six to twelve cents per pound cheaper .
than the wholesale grocera do. "
How can we do this? asks the country merchant.
This is our answer. We are content with seven
percent profit instead of 26 and 60 per cent, a la
wholesale grocer.
We deserve the (hanks of the country merchants ai
for saving them hereafter from being cheated. Let j
them come to the Warehouse of the Pekin Tea 0
Company, and compare samples of Tea they get
elsewhere; arid if they buy bad Teas then at high
prices it is their own fault. V
An English importer lately boasted to us that he ^
could make more money by sending had Teas to the ,
New York market, than on good Teas. We are
retolved to overthrow this fraud; and now call upon
