CCT'Tbe Princeton Clarion, speaking of
Daniel Webster says:
"His personal influence may not be half so
tremendous as his f ederal doctrines.
After that we must certainl y set the Clarion
down as one of the bright ones. He is a pret
ty fellow, truly,, to prate ahout "federal doc
trinet" while supporting a rank federalist for
the Presidency one Qf the black-cockade sort
one who gloried m wearing the badge of
that party and in abusing Mr. Jefferson, until
he found it convenient for the sake of office to
cut the one and support the other. Federal
ist Cass will not thank his party press for con
tinually affording the Whigs the opportunity
of casting his former opinions and practices in
his teeth.
The zeal which begins with hypocracy must
conclude in treachery; at first it deceives, at
last it betrays. Princeton Clarion.
The people will see to it that they are not
"betrayed" by Cass. He and his party are at
tempting to deceive the people of this Union
by the publication of four or five editions of
his life, which differ one from the other to suit
the different portions of the country: But it
wont all do. The North has cast him off for
his "hypocrisy ,aud the West for his "treach
ery," to her interest; and the South is well
aware that if he will "deceive" one section he
will "betray' all, and it drops him too. "Poor
old C-ass let him die."

(CJ-The following excellent article, which
we copy from the North American, is recom
mended to the careful perusal of our readers:
The Free Trade Humbug. When is this
miserable illusion of Free Trade to end? It is
true that England when her harvest failed,
and she could not supply her wants from the
Baltic and the Black Sea did temporarily op
en her porta to our American flour and corn.
But was that free trade? No! No sooner did
that season of scarcity pass by, than her wise
Sir Robert, forget ting all the sycophancy of our
Sir Robert, applied the screw again revived
his famous sliding scale and so effectually
drove ourbreadstuffs from her market, that the
export of 1847 was not one-tenth part of the
amount shipped by us in '46 and now, in '48
threatens to shrink to one tylhe of last yeor
tenth; in spile of our daft' Sir Robert's prom
ised grand total for the millenium of nine
hundred millions per annum.
Again Great Britain condescends to admit
our cotton duty free, while declaring "that to
put arms in the hands of the Southern slave is
fair business transaction" see Frazer's
Mag.) but she does this only when our better
fabrics threaten to drive ber coarse goods out
of many foreign markets, protesting all the
time, most virtuously against using the "blood
stained products of the guilty South" and
spending millions for the avowed purpose "o
crushing the Southern staple" by and through
the "free labor produce' of her ryot slaves o
Hindostan, or her convict slaves of New South
Wales. True she will receive our spirits and
tobacco at 1200 percent, duty. This is Free
Trade with a vengeance! But as if to put our
supple Sir Robert to shame, the true Sir Robert
issued an order "commanding the Lord Cham
berlain to announce to the ladies who shal
attend the drawingroom, and shall be honored
with an invitation to Buckingham Palace tha
her Majesty, ever desirous of giving encourage
ment to the trade and industry of the United
Kingdom, and particularly at this time of com
mercial depression would wish to see them in
dresses of British manufacture." As the Queen
had expressed tud same wish the previous
month, this reiteration can only be regarded in
the light of a royal order. We can hardly be
lieve that a Democratic American Ambassador
though representing a British free-trade admin
ist ration at Washingtou, could tamely submit
to his lady appearing at court, clad in British
costume, at H. B. Majesty's command. As lit
tie can we conceive one of our Eastern mer
chants after paying a discriminating duty o
300 per cent, on his cottons at .Calcutta rel
ishing such a comment on our Sir Robeil's doc
trine of free trade as to find his wife excluded
from court, unless rustling in British silks---on
compulsion. "Yet such; after ruthlessly sacrifi
cing the iron, woolen, and cotton manufac
tures of our country on the altar of this Mo
loch of free-trade, robbing, orr operatives of
bread, and our farmers of the British markets
promised to them by elevating Polk and Dat-
lasto power, are the sad truths forced upon us
as bitter coinmeiits on the celebrated Kane
letter, which will, ere long shroud the furria-
ces, forges and factories of Pennsylvania. We
commend our reäders to an attentive perusal
of Mr. Nile's speech in the United States Sen
ate, in which the speaker, warning his brother
Locofocos of the coming evils of the British
Tariff, admits that the balance of trade against
us in 1813 will be at least 642,003,000. But
Mr. Niles warns in vain a Senate so hopeless
ly inimical to home industry and national in
dependence. There, party rules, and the coun
try is forgoten Locofocoism has a poweiful
majority, and the republic noue; here we find
may politicians, few statesmen lost great
men and perverted patriots of the Goldsmith
school, who bold the interests of faction supe

uovernmen wim no demand abroad lor our
breadstuffs with our ports filled with the em
igrating labor of Europe, anxious for employ

sult. Our manufactories closed our specie
drained to pay for foreign fabrics inferior to
our own our farmers without a foreign mar
ket, and their home market paralyzed- in the
midst of a teeming harvest our honest and
high-minded merchants ruined by the villanies
of foreign agents (who deem ingenious frauds
on the custom houses of all rival manufactur-
nations perfectly innocent, if necessary to their
success) ruijiarfd repudiation must again
stalk through our land. Shall we, then tame
ly submit to witness these inevitable conse
queucesof the iniquitous policy of Polk, Dal
las and Walker? The remedy is in our own
hands. Popular calamity and popular pros
perity are alike ordained, in America, by the
popular plaesure. If the people of the Unite !
States choose, they can at once escape all these
thickening evils of free trade. If they will it,
they can, in a moment, change they can ut
terly annihilate the free trade majority in the
Senate. Our great periodical, quadrennial rev

In 1836, Lewis Cass, Henry Hubbatd, Fran

formed themselves into an association under
the title of the "Western Land Association'
for the purpose of speculating in Western
lands. One of the Association certificates

Be it known, that Lewis Cass, Henry Hub
bard. Francis O. J. Smith. Frances Markoe, jr.
and Ramsay McHenry, on the 28lh day of
April, A.;D. 1836, entered into an association,
with the combined capital of $220,000. for the
purchase and sale of Public Lands, in certain
Western Stetes and Territories of the Union ac
cording to certain articles of agreement bear
ins said date, and signed by said parties; and
that is proprietor of
.thousand dollars of said capital,
whereof the segregate sum specified in the un
derwritten certificate has been paid: the said
thousand dollars being a portion of
the camtal originally assumed to said
in said articles of agreement, and subject to a
deduction of one third part of the profits accru
ing thereon, and the payment of a proportional
fraction of the necessary expenses of the con
stituted Agent of said .Association, and to no
tber deduction.
Be it known, also, that said stock is transfer
able in whole, or in parts not less than one thou
sand dollari.by an assignment of this certificate
by said or his Attorney, and
record thereof being made by the Secretary in
the transfer book ol the Association.
Washington City, 1836.
This Association for purposes of land specu
la t ion was formed when Lewis Cass was Secre
tary of War under Mr. Van Buren. Cass him
self, the chief of the speculators, paid in 820,
000, aud others paid in $100,000, makings to
tal of $120,000. The contemplated capital of
$220,000 was not obtained. The plan of the
association was to enter lands in the West and
hold them up for a vast increase of value. Cass
beiug Secretary of War and, in virtue of bis
official station, having .important advantages
over private iudividuals, the Association gave
him the control of the whole business. He ap
pointed the agent 4to make entries of land se
lectinghis own agent and agreeing to be respon
sible for his acts. Theagent went to the West
and made purchases, all under Cass's direction
and the latter, directly, and through bis agent
continued to have the management of the
After several years delay, the members of the
Association begau to have strong suspicions
that there was little or no probability of their
ever getting anything for their-money. All
their applications to Cass for information were
of no avail. Nothinz satisfactory could be
learned. After a consultation with each other
they appointed the Hon, Henry Hubbard, one
of their number, and then or since U. S. Sena
tor from New Hampshire, to look after their
interests and ascertain if Cass and his agent
bad dealt by them fairly and honestly. Mr
Hubbard opened a correspondence with Cass
but, failing in every effort to get any satisfac
tion from him, hh wrote a final letter inform
ing the Aon. Secretary of War that he was a
rascal, and the Hon. Secretary was quiet and
silent under the charge. Mr. Hubbard chorged
him with swindling his associates, and the
Hon. Secretary, instead of exhibiting resent
ment or attempting to prove his innocence,
admitted by his silence the justice of the accu
sation, and even to, this day the Associa
tion has not been able to get anyting out of
We are authorised to make this statement by
a member of the Association, a gentleman who
paid $10,000 into the hands of Cass or his
agent and has never received anything weat
ever in considerrtion of his money. Our in
formant requests us, if the villainy is denied, to
call on the Hon. Henry Habbard for a statement
of the truth to demand of him a publication
of the letters that passed between him and Cass
particularly the letter to the Hon. Secretary of
War, charging him with villainy in all its
forms. We shall enclose a copy of this paper
to Gen. Cass, and, if he hrs anything to say, let
him speak out or authortze some of his organs
to speak out for him. Mr. Hubbard, the pub
lic are aware, is a prominent Locofoco and was
the man that nominated Mr. Polk in the Balti
more convention four years ago.
It was bad enough in all conscience for the
head of the War Department to become a
member of an association for speculating in
lands to use the advantages of his high office
one. of the very highest in the Government, for
monopolising lands, through the use of an im
mense capital, to the great disadvantage and
detriment of the poor emigrant. Such an op
eration on tire part of a Secretary of War would
have been in the extremest degree censurable
even if there had been nothing dishonest or un
fair in his treatment of his associates; but if it
is a fact, as charged, that, to the monstrous im
propriety and shamelessness of entering into
such a speculation, the Secretary added the
crime of cheating or overreaching his asso
ciates, he deserves an immortality of infa
my. The man who, as Secretary of War, specu
lated so extensively in Western lauds, and who
by that and other means, has accumulated pro
perty to the amount of a million of dollars, is
now a candidate for the Presidency. If, with
a high office and a salary of $6,000, he could
Operate thus largely as a land-speculator, what
might he not be expected to do with a still
higher office and a salary of $25,000? If no
sense of property could restrain him from con-
n(.c i;n-h;m.irr;th aerret association for
the monopoly of public lands when he was a
member of the Cabinet, what could be relied on
o retain him from a similar proceeding if he
were President?
Look at this thing, fellow-citizens. hlg:
and Democrats, and decide for yourselves in'
your own honest minds if this land-speculating
Secretary of War, whether guilty or not guilty
of the crime, laid to his charge by the Hon.
Henry Hubbard and bis other associates, of de
frauding and swindling them, is the man whom
you will elevate to the Presidency.

The Drotraeted declamation of Mr. Diane v
at the democratic mass meeting on Friday af
ternoon, left to the Governor of Indiana but a
small fragment of the afternoon for the dis
charge of his stump speaking fuuetions. He
bad but a lew moments to speak. I he steam
cars bad just brought bim to that party gather
ing, and the steamboat was even then near at
band that was to hurry our Governor to anoth
er Dartv rallv at Risins Sun. Would that the
magnetic telegraph could snatch up bis excel
lency bodily, and flash bim about the Stale,
t . c- . ..
dropping him down wherever a few doz
ens of his locofoco brethreu meet in coun
cil. '
But in the brief time allowed to bis Excel
lency; he felt it to be at once his privilege and
his duty, as Governor of the State to welcome
home the soldiers of the 4th Re ei ment Indiana
Volunteers (a few of whom, attracted by the
bell and bellow of the city marshal, were in
attendance.) and to thank them for redeeming
the State from the reproach cast upon the 2nd

Does he recollect anything about a secret con
clave of military politicians that met in the
spring of 1846, in Kent's back room in New
Albany, the object of which was to secure to
the Locofocos any glory that the Indiana troops
might win in the Mexican war? A conclave
of politico-military jugglers, devising how they
might best toss locofocos into the saddles of
the field offices. And does he recollect that
he, Gov. Jim. Whitcomb was the master spirit
of that conclave? And does he remember the
thanks he received from the volunteer privates
lor thus making them and their cause subser
vient to his base party intrigue? Does he re-

he passed, and how his excellency was threat
coed by them with immersion in the Ohio nr
er for bis conduct in that particular? If it bad
occurred to bim that the election of Colonel
BowVs was a part of the same system of in-!
trigue, aud that if party politics lud ben ban
ished from the camp, Indiana might have worn
the greenest laurels of that campaign he might
with more propriety have thanked the 4th regi
ment for pouring out their blood to redeem the
character of the State from the consequences of
his political intrigues.
Governor Whitcomb told the volunteers
that in his opinion it was the knapsack and
not the epaulet that won the battle; that Gen.
Taylor with his $7,000 a year got too much
Buena Vista glory, at the expense of the vol
unteer with his $7 a mouth. . The dead bodies
of the soldiers went into the ditch covered
with blood, while the fame of the General
went to the skies covered with glory. The
whole of this portion of the Gov's, was an art
ful attempt to excite the jealousy and preju
dice of the volunteers against Gen. Taylor.
It breathed a spirit of insubordination that
would soon prove - fatal to all military enter
prise. Who does not know that without the
knapsack the epaulet is powerless in battle?
And even that old fool, (as Mr. Disney dis-
cribed him) General Taylor, would perliapsad-
um uiah w mi uuunng dui nis epauieis anu
"old whitey," he could not well have won the
field of Buena Vista. And on the other hand
nobody knows better than the volunteers pres
ent on that occasion, bow vitally essential are
military discipline and subordination to suc
cess in military operations. They would call
that man a fool, be he Governor or private cit
izen, that would turn loose each knapsack in
an army of 5,000 in battle, to fight "on its
own hook." For the safety of their own lives
and for the glory of their country's arms they
would demaud military subordination, and a
General competent to lead them. And when
they have such a General as the one Whitcqmb
deftmes, they will follow him in war and love
him in peace.
The volunteers for whose benefit that hum
bug speech was intended seemed to appreci
ate the singularity of the Speaker's position.
They saw the Governor of the Commonwealth
coming out from the capitol and running round
the State in the capacity of a cunning dema
gogue and partisan leader. They saw the Ex
othcio commander in chief of the militia of In
diana endeavoring to prejudice the soldier
against the general, and insidiously preaching
doctrines of insubordination. They testified
lheextenl of the obligations they fell under to
his Excellency, by huzzaing for Taylor, and
shoutiug "mileage."
The Governorlike the person that preceded
him, was of opinion that Gen. Taylor was too
ignorant to be fit for the Presidency, and he
repeated the assertion that the Whig party was
destitute of political principles. All the ques
tions growing out of the war, the veto power
that it is said he has' exercised a little him
self andsall the other questions upon which
the opinions of the parlies are divided, receiv
ed the go-by. But the boat coming in sight
the Governor cut short his speech and hurried
off to preach democracy to the citizens of Ohio
county. He bolted throughjthe rtowd to the
river with the Courier fluttering at hU heels,
and this closed the great democratic mass
On Saturday evening his Excellency return
ed from Rising Sun where in the meantime be
had let off a stump speech, and again the sten
torian bellowing of our city marshal announc
ed that eaity candle-light his Excellency
would hustle down a little more locofoco
thunder from a beef bench in the lower market
house. The volunteers were particularly in
vited to be present. At the appointed hour a
tolerably large number of Democrats and au
equally large number of Whigs were in atten
dance. Again His Excellency felt it his duty as
thiel magistrate of the State to bid the returned
Volunteers welcome home. That it was be
lieved he had done on Friday. But a fond
mother will kiss the returned wanderer once,
and not content with that she M ill fly back
and repeal the embrace of maternal affection.
Oh how the Governor "loved those brave boys
he had parted with at New Albany,' and he
must repeat the words of Welcome. When
such irrepressible love for the Volunteers was
swelling up from the Governor's affectionate
heart, how cruel it was in those soldiers
toauspect that His Excellency was trving
to humbug them, and to Tociferate such words

This speech was but a dish-water dilution of

effort in every respect. His manifest object in
these speeches is to poison the minds of the

Cheap Pleascrfs. Did you ever study
the cheapness of some pleasures? D you
know how little it takes to make a multitude
hippy? Such trifles as a penny, a word, or
a smile, do the work. There are two or
three boys passing along Give them each
a cltesnut, and how smilling ihey look! They
will not be cross for some time. A poor
widow lives in a neighborhood who is ihe
mother of half a dor en children; send ihem
half a peck of sweet apples, and they will
all be happy. A child has lost its arrow
the world tohiin and he mourns sadly; help
him find it, or make him another, and how
quickly will the sanshiue play upn his sober
face. A boy has as much as he can do to
pile up a load of wood, assist him a few mo
ments, or speak a pleasant word lo bim, and
he forgets his toil and works away without
minding it. Your npprrntice has' broken a
mug, or cut the vest too large or slightly
injured a piece of work; ray, You scound

am sorry, and he will try todo belter. You
employ a man pay him cheerfully," and
speak a pleasant word to him, and he leaves
your house with a contented heart, to light
up his own hearth with smiles and gladness.
As you pass along the street, you meet a fa

felt happy, and it will work admirably in the
heart of your neighbor.
Pleasure is cheap who will not bestow

io our hearts. No. IUther let us take

congregate, in our families and every where.
