FOR PRESIDENT, j
HENRY CLAY,!
OF KENTUCKY.
WASHINGTON,
THURSDAY MORNING, JAN. 11. 1844.
THE WHIG MEETING.
The Whigs of thia city held their first meeting
preparatory to the campaign of '44 on Tuesday
evening. A Clay Club was formed, of which
J. H. Bradlev, Esq., was chosen President. Sev
eral members of Congress addressed the meet
ing, and the enthusiastic applause which greeted
their remarks warrants the assurance that this first
gun from Washington headquarters will be fol
lowed up with successive peals of Whig artillery t
whose echoes will spread from the centre to the
extremes of the Union. The speakers were
unanimous in the opinion that it waB both the
right a.id duty of the citizens of this disfranchised
ten miles square to make themselves heard and
felt in the coming contest; and we have no doubt
that the voices of the people here will-accomplish
as much towards the election of Mr. Clay as the
votes of any equal number of citizens elsewhere.
They can at least " clear the ring, and ehow old
Kentuck fair play."
THE GLOBE'S HONESTY.
For a few weeks past the Globe has been
making the most violent, virulent, and unpro
voked attacks upon the Hon. John Davis, of Mas
sachusetts, because he has been employed by the
State of Illinois and the holders of her bonds in
England, mutually, to endeavor to bring about an
arrangement, by which the latter shall advance
money enough to the State to complete some of
the improvements, canals, railroads, &c., which
she had begun, nearly finished, but for want of
means was compelled to leave in an unfinished,
and, of course, unproductivo condition. Could
such an arrangement be accomplished, it is ob
vious to all. that the millions which Illinois had
expended upon her improvements, and which,
without further expenditure, would be entirely
thrown away, would become productive capital
to the State, and enable her to pay the interest
at least on her debt, and redeem her honor and
credit, to say nothing of affording the facilities
of easy and cheap transportation to her citizens
for their immense agricultural productions to
market, and of goods brought into the State for
consumption in return. Could any man see harm
in such an arrangement 1 On the contrary, would
it net be productive of immense advantage to the
people of Illinois ? Most assuredly, and there
fore the good people of that State, of all parties,
rejoiced at the prospect of bringing it about, and
gave Governor Davis, when he came to the State
for the purpose mentioned, a most cordial and un
feigned welcome. Poor souls ! they did not know
that he came to buy them all up!?never dreamed
of such a thing until the Globe raised the cry of
"BRITISH INFLUENCE!" Theynever
thought they were to become the slaves of British
widows and orphans?it may be even a few, very
few Lords?by making an arrangement by which
they could pay their debts honestly, and increase
the value of their farms, at the tame time that
they facilitated travel in the State, and removed
those objections which now prevent emigrants
from locating themselves in that State. No such
thing. They did not perceive or dream that no
influence but " British influence" could induce
them to be honest and just both to themselves
and their creditors ! No; they were too blind or
unsuspicious until they were told so by the Globe,
and not even then.
But the peculiar " honesty" of the Globe, to
which we are particularly desirous to call public
attention, is manifested in its report of Mr. Went
worth's remarks in Committee of the Whole on
Tuesday. Mr. Wentworth acted the part of an
honest man in defending Governor Davis against
the assaults of the Globe, and in bearing testi
mony to his high character for honesty?jrover.
bial honesty and integrity.
"Mr. W. said he wished to be permitted to
make an allusion to some remarks which he had
seen in diflerent papers in relation to the project
and the negotiations thereon in his own State, of
binding together the different portions of our
common country?he alluded to the completion of
the Illinois and Michigan canal, and to the recent
appointment of Governor Davis to investigate that
subject. Opposed to him as he was in principle,
he was rejoiced at. this appointment, and any allu
sion to political influences in (his matter he must
repel as an assault upon the dominant party there.
The dominantpu-ty had taken, as was natural, a
suitable nun of the other party, so that in this
great measure of national importance all political
biases should be avoided, and both parties be uni
ted in this great and grand object of connecting
together the waters of the Gulf of Mexico with
the upper lakes and with the Atlantic ocean.
Mr. W. had no fetr of the integrity of that Stale,
of its being bought with British gold i that State
had been tried, and it wan too late to be appre
heimive of attacks of this k.nd upon .t. He re
joiced to say that the day w?? coming when that
State would riae into a new character a? a deb -
paying and inteiest-paying State. And while
much was said upon repud.ation in various sec
tions of this country, Mr. W. for one, and his col
leagues with him, and the people of his Slate with
them, were in favor of rising in the great cause
of placing that State immediately in the position
of an interest-paying State?of a Stato which
meant to pay its hone6t debts, and that meant to
indicate her intention to do this by paying a little
interest immediately. And lor this purpose they
threw aside all party bias, and asked all honest
men to join them in this undertaking."
Now, reader, would you believe that the Globe,
which professes to give a true and correct report
I of the debates in the House, although it gi\es
1 what purports to be the substance ot Mr. W ent
I worth's remarks, has not one word of the above!
I No, not a single allusion to the name of Governor
I Davis, although this vindication was the principal
object of his speech! And why should it ? It
had made false, malicious, and unfounded charges*
why publish their refutation by cne of its own
party upon the floor of Congress, and thus pro
I claim its own mendacity and shame 1 But it shall
not escape the brand Mr. Wentworth has put
upon its brazen front; and that it may not, we
call upon the whole Whig press of the country to
I republish this article.
NEW BUFFALO.
In the Senate on Tuesday, Mr. Porter pro
1 sented a memorial from citizens of New Buffalo,
I situated somewhere upon the Southeastern part
1 of Lake Michigan, asking the aid of Congress.
I It is a new town, just commenced.
I We think we see a reason why Congress
should aid the citizens?if they are so poor that
they had even to borrow a name, they are cer
tainly poor enough to be the recipients of public
charity, at least so far as to be helped to a new
I and distinctive name. Let them call upon " the
I poor Indian," and we will engage he will furnish
I them with an euphonious name that shall have a
I descriptive signification, and therefore a proper
name for their new city.
The Whigs cf Berks county, Pennsylvania, held
a large and enthusiastic meeting at Beading on
the 2d instant. Besolutions in favor of Mr. Clay
for President and Judge Banks for Governor,
were adopted by a unanimous vote of the con
I vention. John S. Richards, Esq., editor of Berks
and Schuylkill Journal, was appointed delegate
I to the Baltimore Conventioa.
The Johnson men held a meeting the day pre
I vious, and rejected a resolution agreeing to go for
I the Locofoco nominee of the Baltimore Con
I vention.?N. Y. Tribune.
The Richmond Whig, speaking of the Loco
I foco majority in Congress, says: " Give them
rope enough, and they will hang themselves."
To which the Louisville Journal says:
" Well, we are decidedly in favor of giving
I them all the rope their hearts desire and their
necks deserve. Kentucky, if necessary, will
gladly contribute her whole hemp crop in such a
cause."
New York and Virginia.?Last year, Gover
nor Bouck's message was extremely so|icitou*
that the Legislature should oblige Virginia by
repealing the jury law and surrendering general
ly the ground taken by Governor Seward. The
matter was discussed, reported on, but not con
summated. This year, our Governor has not a
word to say on the subject. Virginia, you see,
had not declared for Van Buren against his rivals
a year ago ; she has now. Quite a difference.?
N. Y. Tribune.
Impeachment of Governor Porter.?Mr.
Roumfort, of the Pennsylvania House of Repre
sentatives, has made a motion to raise a com
mittee to draw up articles of impeachment
against Governor Porter. The Governor, in a
message, desires that the impeachment may be
attempted. The matter was, however, post
poned for the present.?Bait. Clipper.
Lead and Copper Trade of Galena.?'We
observe by an article in a recent number of the
St. Louis Republican that there were shipped
from Galena and Dubuque, and all other points
on the Upper Mississippi, during the year 1843,
563,731 pigs of lead?weighing 39,461,171 lbs.,
and valued at $937,202. The value of Wiscon
sin copper exported from these places, during
the same period, was $11,000. It is thought
that the shipments of copper during the present
year will double those of last year. The actual
increase in the exports of lead in favor of 1843,
as compared with the exports of 1842, is 140,174
pigs, or 9,800,080 pounds.
The old saying, " shoemaker stick to your
last," is about being verified in the shoemakers
protesting against any alteration being made to
the Tariff, by which their distinct interest may
be affected. It is supposed thai there are not
less than 150,000 journeymen shoemakers in the
United States?quite an army, and moreover,
3C,000 females who are employed iu binding
shoes. We must confess, numerically speaking,
that this is an interest requiring great consider
ation, and we might add protection. It appears,
however, that the free-trade papers are calling for
a redaction of the duty en shoes, and the shoe
makers are quite alarmed, declaring that they
cannot compete with French shoemaker^ who
receive but forty cents per day, as the highest
wages ; and, moreover, they say that a mechan
ic's dinner in France is a piece of bread?an
apple?a pear?and a pennyworth of brandy.

thus far, has a majority of 86. The towns to be
heard from (Holland and Whately) gave a ma
jority against Baker in November, of 32. If
the majority agaiust him now, is no larger, he is
chosen.
Mike Walsh.?The term of Walsh's impris
onment expires to-night, and we learn that he
will to-morrow morning make a triumphal entry
into the city, escorted by some thousands of his
iriends, on horse and on foot. We may very rea_
sonably expect an exciting and interesting spec
lacle.?iV. Y. Aurora of Tuesday.
ROBBERY OF POMEROY St CO.'d EXPRESS.
A gentleman has given us some new facts
which seem at length to throw a little light on
this mysterious transaction. A man parsing the
evening a few days since with a woman of ill
I j'tme named Legget, in Rochester, was informed
bv her that she had some of the bills that were
lound in the trunk of Ponieroy's Express. She
then produced them to his astonishment, and in
formed him that Messrs. Rust and Banks had
given them to her.
Impelled by the large reward offered for the
I apprehension of the robbers, this man went to
l the police and made affidavit to the facts we have
stated. This woman had been watched by the
pol ce for some time, on account of some other
l affair she was suspected of being engaged in.
She was immediately arre3ted, and, on examina
tion, testified to the facts related above, addin^
the name of Copp to those of Messrs. Rust and
Banks. She stated also that those bills were
give her to fill out for circulation, as she was able
to imitate with great exactness any ordinary
hand-writing. J
To test this part of the statement, a few sen
tences were written, and she was requested to
imitate them, which she did with wonderful pre
cision. She stated further that these bills, when
I A) up. were to be despatched with a messenger
I , es~ 1 l'iese *acts being made known, the
sheriff was immediately despatched to Syracuse,
where he arrested Banks. The arrest bein^ in
some way illegal, he was compelled to release
him, when Banks arrested tlie sheriff for false
irnprisonment, and held him to bail in the sum of
! V/wjUUu.
Immediately on his release, Banks started a
horse express for Rochester. The sheriff also
took a horse and cutter for Auburn, with an order
for an engine there, to run to Rochester for the
[ purpose of anticipating the express of Banks,
lhe deputy sheriff was despatched to Troy to
arrest Copp. Our informant states that he had
these facts from the deputy sheriff himself, who
was on his way to arrest Copp. Banks, it is said,
was arrested again, so that probably all three are
now under arrest. If these statements can be re
lied on, it is not difficult to point where the crime
rests.
The starting of an express by Banks for Ro
chester would be a very singular thing unless
there was truth in the woman's testimony. The
result of the two expresses will doubtless throw
more light on this subject, and if the report
brought us is true, the whole thing will soon be
cleared up. There are rumors afloat implicating
some others, but as nothing is yet certain, we
withhold names.
Postcript?Half past 3 o'clock.?By the Al
bany boat, just arrived, we learn a number of
citizens of Auburn and Syracuse proceeded on
[ Saturday to Rochester, for the purpose of inves
tigating the charge against Mr. Rust. A slip
I ?m i i? ??Ce 0t the Democrat contains a card
signed by them, as also one from citizens of Ro
chester, clearly establishing Mr. Rust's irino
| cence.?N. Y. Tribune.

MEETING OF TKE WHIGS OF WASH- 1
TON. 1
Pursuant to notice, a large and enthusiastic
meeting ot the Whigs of Washington convened I
at the Assembly rooms, Louisiana avenue, on
Tuesday evening, January 9, for the formation
of a Clay Club.
Dr. William 13. Magruuer was called to the
Chair, and Jno. T. Towers appointed to act as
Secretary.
Dr. A. McD. Davis reported, from the com
mittee heretofore appointed for that purpose, a
constitution for the government of a Clay Club,
which, after having been read, was unanimously
adopted.
On motion, a committee of five was appointed
by the Chair, to report a list of officers for the
Club, in pursuance of the provisions of the con
stitution ; and Messrs. Blake, Hyatt, Eanby,
f* ahnham, and Acken, were named as said
committee.
Mr. VYattekston moved that a committee
of live be appointed to report resolutions for
the consideration of the meeting, which was
adopted; and Messrs. Watterston, Holmes,
Davis, Buvan, and Hewitt, were appointed by
the Chair.
The Hon. Mr. Stephens, of Georgia, being
present, was loudly called for, and took the stand
and delivered an able and eloquent address upon
the principles of the Whig party.
The committee appointed to report officers for
the Club, presented the following list, which
was adopted by the meeting:
President.
Joseph h. Bradley.
Vice Presidents.
Wm. B. Magruder,
Alexander McD. Davis,
Joseph Bryan,
Washington Young,
William D. Acken.
Corresponding Secretaries.?Geo. Watter
ston, J. L. IIenshaw, John H. Hewitt.
Treasurer.?R. Farnham.
Recording Secretaries.?Jno. T. Towers, A.
B. Claxton.
Executive Committee.
John A. Blake, Joseph Borrows,
S. Holme9, Geo. W. Harkness,
R. C. Washington, Leonard Harbaugh,
Seth Hyatt, Isaac Beers,
Samuel Bacon, Richard H. Stewart,
R. S. Patterson, Wm. Thompson, 5th st.
Mr. Watterston, from the committee ap
pointed for that purpose, submitted the follow
ing resolutions, which were adopted by accla
mation :
Resolved, That the citizens of Washington,
though deprived of the elective franchise, feel
as deep an interest in the preservation of the
Union, the welfare and prosperity of their coun
try, and the success of its free institutions, as
their more fortunate fellow-citizens in the seve
ral States where this franchise is enjoyed ; and
that, from their peculiar position, they have a
better opportunity to observe, as they have been
made to feel, the follies and misrule of those
who have been intrusted with the administra
tion of the Federal Government.
Resolved, That, though thas situated, the po
litical interests of the citizens of Washington
are identified with those of the citizens of the
States, and, in the language of the " Federalist,"
they will, in all questions that affect the gen
eral liberty and prosperity, have the same inter
est with those who are at a distance, and will
stand ready to sound the alarm when necessary,
and to point out the actors in any pernicious pro-1
ject." Knowing that this duty is expected of
them, they have always been ready boldly and
fearlessly to perform it, and, as vigilant senti
nels, to sound the alarm to their fellow citizens
at a distance.
tteso/ved, That they have witnessed with
dismay and sorrow the systematic attempts
which have been made to destroy the national
credit and honor, the currency, commerce, and
manufactures of the country ; to paralyze public
and private enterprise, and to trample under foot
the Constitution and laws of the Republic. As
an evidence of this, they need only refer to the
late action of the House of Representatives upon
the admission of members of that body elected
in open disregard and violation of law.
Resolved, That they would regard the tri
umph of Locofocoism, with all its attributes of I
proscription, profligacy, repudiation, and folly,
as one of the greatest evils that could befal the
nation ; but driven from power, as the self-styled
Democratic party and its leader were in 1840,
by the indignant voice of an outraged people!
this meeting cannot believe it possible thai the
enlightened freemen of this country could be so
far deluded as blindly to rush again into the
toils from which they so lately and successfully
delivered themselves; and they feel assured, that
when the great contest comes, ii must result in
the triumph o 1 the principles which they have
always proudly maintained, and which are so
eminently calculated to render the nation pros
perous and happy, to give stability to the repub
lic, and to add to the permanency and duration
of its free institutions.
Resoived, That the objects which this meet
ing most anxiously desire to see successfully
accomplished are, in the words of the great
leader of the Whig party, the following:
1. A sound national currency, regelated by
the will and authority of the nation.
2. An adequate revenue for the support of an
economical Government, with such a discrimi
nation in the duties imposed as will incidentally
afford reasonable protection to our national in-1
terests. 1
3. Just restraints on the Executive power em-1
bracing a further restriction on the exercise of I
the veto. 1
4. A faithful administration of the public do
main, with an equitable distribution of the pro
ceeds of the sales of it among all the States.
5. An honest and economical administration
of the General Government.
G. An amendment to the Constitution, limit
ing the incumbent of the presidential office to a
single term.
Resolved, That, in the opinion of this meet
ing, no one could be selected so well qual fied
to carry the principles of the Whig party into
effect, and to attain the objects above mentioned,
as HENRY CLAY, whose ardent patriotism]
brilliant exertions, and splendid merits, have
been long felt, appreciated, and acknowledged
by the great body of the American people; and
that this meeting will most cordially co-operate
with their Whig brethren id the several States,
in promoting, by all honorable means, his elec
tion to the Presidency of the United States.
The Hon. Messrs. Jarnec.an and Milton
Brown of Tennessee, Chilton of Viiginia, Col
lamkii of Vefmottt* and 1*hohass6w of Iteii4
tucky, were called on by the meeting, and s^Vi
e.'ally addressed it upon the principal topics of
I lie party.
On moron, the thanks of the meeting we-e
tendered to the honorable gentlemen wlio ad
dressed them during the evening.
On motion of Dr. Maoritder, tbe Whig pa
pers of the District were requested to publish
the proceedings of the meeting.
The meeting then adjoujned.

jects proposed by our Government in its recent
treaty stipulations with Great Britain, to main
tain a squadron qp that coast, it is entitled to all
such protection and aid from 6aid squadron, as

the provisions of said treaty, granted.
Resolved, That it be earnestly recommended
to the Board of Managers of this Society to adopt
immediate and efficient measures for raising in
this District such an amount, as, with the sums

Resolved, That, in a work so benificent as the
one for which we now associate, the ladies' whose
hearts are the reservoirs of that benevolence
which Heaven grants to relieve the woes of a
suffering world, be irtvited to participate with ua
in this special effort to aid the cause, which, hs a
charity begins at home, and yet extends its benign
effects to millions of wretched human beings in
a foreign land.
Resolved, That it be recommended to the Man
agers of this Society to consider the means of in
creasing the circulation of the African Reposi
