FOB PltESlJPUNT, HENRY CLAY, OF KENTUCKY. "Flag of the free ! thy fold* nhnll tl>'? Tlic tlgn of iMppe and Arlwmpb WASHINGTON, FRIDAY MORNING, JAN. 12,1844. THE DEBT-MAKING PARTY?MORE MISREPRESENTATION. ELEGANT EXTRACTS. " Federalism, from the days of Hamilton, has always looked to the creation of a public debt as one of fhe indispensable means of subjugating the people. It has always acted on the old maxim that ' the debtor is a slave? It was lit erally so in old times, for a man might be sold for his debts, and his children also; and although the barbarism which once chained the debtor's body, and delivered it over to a creditor, no longer offends the eye by such a spectacle, yet the bondage of debt is as deeply felt as ever.' # ? * # * * " To break the spirit of the people, and make them work submissively under drivers, it is ne cessary to run the community in debt. The Federal contrivance for subjecting the multitude here,' is precisely that which holds the millions of England in servitude to an aristocracy. The plan practised upon, is to fawn, and flatter, and promise fairly ; cheat and humbug, with all the arts of the demagogue, to get control of the Go vernment.; and tnen use its authority to run the State or nation in debt beyond its capacity to pay." * * * * * " Our day has seen fully developed the in stinct of the non-producing class to lay hold of this most effectual debt-machinery to usurp con trol over the country. Let us instance the pro gress made in this way in several of the largest States in the Union, which unluckily fell under the control of Federalism for a short time. " New York was for a short time under the management of a Federal Governor, (Seward,) and a Legislature suited to his purposes. In that brief" period, (if our memory serves us,) the State debt was increased by the addition of near twenty ihillions of dollars. " Pennsylvania fell under the control of Biddle and his bank^Ritner being chosen Governor as the instrument. Porter?elected to supersede him,"by the people?was brought under the in fluence of the same concern. The debt of Penn sylvania grew under these managers as rapidly in proportion as.that of New York, until the State was overwhelmed: " The General Government, in 1840, fell into the hands of the same debt-making, credit-system party. As a cohsequence, the public debt has risen, from a balance against the Government of five millions in Treasury notes, to a debt ol nearly thirty millions, to be increased by a de ficit of hx millions more in the present year; and, if the project of a national bauk had been adopted, as proposed bv Mr. Clay on one hand, or Mr. Tyler on the other, a debt of fifteen mil lions would have been added, as a Government loan to .put it in .motion?making an amount almost equal to a war debt, created in time of peace! ! " In a word, all the debts of the country were of Federal creation. EveTy project for the purpose, even in those State Legislatures where the ma jorities were Democratic, was carried by the union of the Federal party, drawing off, by sec tional and personal appeals, a few stragglers from the Democratic rauks." The above extracts from an article in the Globe of Wednesday evening, furnish as com plete a mixture of falsehood and demagogueism as we ever met with in the same space. Whe ther " Federalism" has, from the days of Ham ilton, looked to the crcation of a public debt as one of the. indispensable means of subjugating the people, we shall not now argue; though in, the sense in which the assertion is intended to be understood, we deny it, aud. challenge the Globe to tho pr6of. "To break the spirit of the people and make them work," See.?this is the language of the demagogue; of one who has the effrontery to speak of " the non-produ cing classes," while in the enjoyment of immeuse wealth which has come out of the pockets of the people?wealth which he has accumulated from " fat jobB" and " government pap"?eighty thousand dollars of which was derived from a single job of this kind, namely, the printing of the census returns of 1840! But for the facts and falsehoods. FxLSEHOon.?The Globe says that the State debt o( New York was increased during the brief period of'a Federal Governor (Seward) and a Legfslaiilre suited to his Jiurposes." Fact.?The Locofoco Governor (Marcy) " and a Legislature suited to hi^ purposes," a year or two preceding the political revolution in the Em pire State, entered upon a plan of enlarging the Erie canal from Albany to Buflalo?recommend ed by the Locofoco Canal Commissioners, of whofn the present Locofoco Governor (Bouck) was the chief, the execution of which would have involved the State in a debt of not les? , than fobtv millions, and which was the cause of the present debt of that State, incurred before the Whig administration could pat a stop to the plan adopted, and in part carried out by their predecessors, the Locofocos. 'J'hts wfts the cause of the &iale debt being increased near twenty millions, and the Globe knows it, notwithstand-1 ing he talks doubtingly about his memory serv ing him. Falsehood.?"Pennsylvania fell unJer the control," &c.?" Biddle"?Bank," &.c. Fact.?The Whigs and Antimasons have had control of the State but three years out of the last thirty. During that time, the credit of the Stale never stood higher, nor, were its finances managed better. It borrowed money, to be sure, to carry on works commenced, and to meet en gagements filtered into,^by the Governor Wolf Administration ; but it borrowed on more advan tageous terms than any administration ever had done, and " (if our memory serves us)" the pub lic debt was actually decreased one hundred thou sand dollars during those three years! It was necessary to screen the Globe's own friends, by lugging in Mr. Biddle, the Bank, &c.; all " gammon and spinach," intended as a tickle palate" for the people?for those, at least, who always prick up their ears whenever they hear Biddle and Bank mentioned, as if there was a '? raw head and bloody-bones" coming! Dema gogueism, sheer, arrant demagogue ism ! The Globe charges the Whigs, whom he de signates as " Federalists"?he was once a "Fed eralist," according to his own use of the term, himself?with being "the debt-making party." Is it so! What party has ruled in Mississippi, Alabama, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Arkansas'! What party has ruled in Massachusetts, Dela ware, New Jersey, Connecticut, Kentucky, Ver mont, Rhode Island, North Carolina 1 There is not a State in the Union, where the Locofocos have had the sway, except Maine, New Hamp shire, Virginia, South Carolina, and Missouri? that they have not run into debt and embarrass ment. As to the national debt, the falsehood of charging that upon the Whigs, has been so often nailed to the Globe's brazen front, that it is use less to nail it there again. The Locofoco party, then, it will be seen by the facts, is " the debt making party and they are more, they are the debt repudiating party. At their door lie botli DEBT and REPUDIATION. ORGANIZE, WHIGS! We insert below the beginning and conclud ing paragraphs of an eloquent appeal to the W higs of the Union by the New York Tribune; we hare heretofore called attention to the sub ject, and believe that nothing remains to accom plish the good work but to carry out the recom mendation. Although from every quarter, North, South, East, and West, the note of preparation pours in upon us, still there is rcom for more. Organize we say, forthwith ; let every friend of Henry Clay who means to do duty in the fight report himself at once. "Friends of Henry Clay! it is high time we were earnestly, zealously, universally engag ed in preparing the Public Mind for the Great Contest of 1844. Some of us are so, but a few cannot do all that must be done. There are One Million and a Half of Whig Voters in the Union* many of whom need to be aroused and supplied with renewed evidence of the identity of Whig I Principles and Measures with the Public Interest and Welfare ; there are many thousands beside, who have never taken any decided part in Poli tics and may be won to our side by proper and seasonable effort. If there be One Hundred Thousand of us resolved to do all in our power for the ensuing ten months, our victory is certain. Who will not be one of the Minute Men of this Contest? Let no man neglect his business, let none spend in Electioneering the money that is needed to pay his debts and support his family. The Cause require no breach of duty from any man?it wants no man to come begging for oi fice in '45 on the assumption that he has let his own affairs go to wreck while attending to those of the Nation. Such a man confesses himself unfit for any responsible charge, and should not have any. V\ andering speech-makers, who bring no weight of character into the contest, can do no essential service, but there is work for all, and now is the time to set about it. Let us begin at once!" * * * * " Whigs of every calling ! Realize the advan tage of early and harmonious action ! Organize in every village and neighborhood, no matter if there be but five of you, and make quiet and ju dicious preparation for the coming campaign.? Five good men in a township, thoroughly unit ed, and working hearty for the Cause, not for themselves, can make a difference of 20 votes equal to 200,000 in the Union. Do not let the 22d of February pass without oiganizin?: a Clav Club!" MR. PROFFIT. We understand that this gentleman's nomina tion as Minister to Brazil was yesterday rejected by the Senate. Several minor nominations were confirmed, but this member of the Corporal's Guard has been ordered to countermarch. This is right; Mr. P's incompetency was as notorious as his sycophancy. Massachusetts.?-The House of Reoresenta tives of this State proceeded on Monday last to select two from the four highest candidates for the office of Governor. George N. IJriggs re ceived 187 votes, and Marcus Morton 120 votes, apd the names of those two gentlemen were pre sented to the Senate as the first and second choices of the House. The names of John Reod and Henry H. Childs were 6ent to the Senate as candidates of the House for the office of Lieut. Governor. In'the Senate, Mr. Briggs received 30 votes, and Mr. Morton 0. The like number of votes were given to Messrs. Reed and Childs for Lieut. Governor ; whereupon, it was declared that Geo. N. Briggs and John Reed are duly elected Gov ernor and Lieut. Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for the year ensuing. our Gallant navy. Fhe following intelligence (Communicated to the Baltimore American by Captain Wil??^late ol the brig Fairfield,) is truly gratifying, and is a sufficient answer to the carpers who day afier day take pleasure in deriding the character tif our little Navy; whether in peace or war, she has always been found ready and able to protect our citizens abroad, as well as to maintain the honor and dignity of our flag. I " Our countrymen, Messrs. Thomas and Curtis, | late master and mate of the brig Zebra, have beeu lying in prison at Gonaives, in the island of Hayti, since early in last August, on a charge of shooting an English captain who came along side the Zebra during the night, to entice a por tion of her crew to desert. The poor fellows had made several applications to the Government ol the United States for relief, and instructions were sent out to the American agent at Cape llaytien to call the immediate attention of the llaytien authorities to the subject, but all with outjeflfect. " They were almost beginning to despair of ever being brought to trial or liberated, so dilato ry were all the movements of the revolutionary Government. In this conjuncture the U. S. brig Bainbridge, Commander Mattison, arrived at Gonaives, and the aid of that officer was of course at once solicited by Capt. Thomas and his mate. They were visited in prison by Capt. Mattison and his officers, whose feelings were shocked at beholding two of their own countrymen confined in the midst of the most intolerable filth, and surrounded by desperadoes of every age, sex, and color. Had it not been for the possession of a small amount of money of their own, and some, friends they found qmongst the foreign residents, they would very soon have perished from star vation. " Having satisfied himself fully of the unfoun ded character of the charge on which they were confined, Capt. Mattison determined to take a decided stand, and without delay to relieve them from their suffering eondition. He immediately called upon the Military Commandant, and in the most decided manner told him that the American Government would not tolerate for a single instant the least act of injustice towards its citizens, and demanded the release of the prisoners, or else their trial according to the laws of the country. But the au thorities of Gonaives could do nothing of themselves ; and, it is under s'ood, referred the Captain to Port au Prince, the seat of Government. Capt. M., determined not to be foiled in his object, at once proceeded to Port au Prince, and I there made a similar demand on the Provisional Government, which, convinced by his emphatic language that he was not to be trifled with, made the most satisfactory response, and issued an order for theil* release from prison and delive ry into his hands. Having accomplished this object, the Bainbridge sailed on the 9th of De cember for Gonaives to take on board the two prisoners, who.by this lime are undoubtedly re 1 eved from confinement and on their way to their own country. I "Captain Mattison deserves the greatest praise for the successful termination of this affair. His conduct was prompt, energetic, and manly, and must have ihe happiest effect on our com mercial intercourse with that Island. " We annex a list of the officers of the Bain bridge, at Port au Prince on the 5th ult : J. Mattison, Commander. C. Thomas and G. W. Harrison, Lieutenants; | E. Lloyd Winder, Act'g. Lieut.; J. Be ale, Pass ed Ass't. Surgeon; G. H. White, Purser; ?. C. Stiles, R. J. D. Price, and J. E. DeHaven, Mid shipmen; C. Dauriter, Master's Mate; J. M. jVIelick, Captain's Clerk; U. Athgrton, Purser's Steward. Loss of Brig Fairfieid.?We learn from the Baltimore American that Capt. George II. Wilson, of the brig Fairfield, arrived there in the steamer from Norfolk on the 10th inst. lie re ports that the Fairfield was cast away on the isl and of Samana, on the night of the 13th of De cember?-the vessel and cargo a total loss. On the morning of the 14th the crew succeeded in getting ashore in the boats, where they remained until the 17th without receiving any assistance. On that day the gale moderated, and the mate, Mr. Scott, proceeded in the boat to Crooked island, for assistance. Here he met with the sloop Lively, which sailed immediately for Samana. and carried | the captain and crew of the Fairfield to Nassau. He also states that during his stay at Nassau, the U. S. Revenue Cutter Nautilus arrived there to demand the slaves who fled from Florida some time since, committed a murder at Key Biscayne, and then took refuge at Nassau. The Nautilus was compelled, however, to sail again without accomplishing her object. The authorities of Nassau refused to give up the fugitives from jus tice on the plea that the proofs were not sufficient ?t. Dominuo.?By the brig Sidney, Captain Barnard, 21 days from Aux Cayes, we have news [ up to the 19th ult. About the 5th of December, there was a mustering of a large number of per sons in the plains without the town, apparently for a hostile purpose. Colonel Rivera hearing' ol it, despatched his Aid with a small body ot" men to allay the excitement and quell the insur gents. Instead of dispersing, the mob immedi ately attacked the aid and his party, and mor tally wounded the Aid, so that he died three days after. Colonel Rivera then went out with a strong posse, captured the three ringleaders of the insurgents, and shot them on the spot. Otherwise the country had been in a quiet state. I roduce was plenty?markets dull. Holders of coffee were keeping the price up?abundance was coming in.?N. Y. Tribune. Absence of Mind !?Amusing incidents some times occur among grave Legislators. One of this character, too good to be lost, occurred in the Senate chamber yesterday. Mr. Hartley, Speaker of the Senate, during a fit of absent mindedness, (probably thinking of blest Spirits and all sorts of very pleasant affairs) as the Sen un, rre ak?ut Soing into Committee of the Vy hole suddenly cast his eye towards Mr. twt a worl"y Whig Senator, and said? " Mr. Angel will take the Chair." Mr. Gabriel was taken all aback, and looked wonders. Mr. hckley quietly leaned towards him and told him that he was the man. Not being aware of any very intimate relationship between himself and the angel Gabriel, of whom the Speaker was possibly thinking, he refused to movo, and the Speaker called another person to the Chair, and, with evident*marks of confusion, apologised for the mistake he had made. Columbus (Ohio) Journal. Lords Day Convention.?We learn from the j Baltimore American that the Convention of Del egaies favorable to a proper observanoe of the Lord's Day, assembled in the Light sireet Me thodist Episcopal Church in that city, on the 10th inst. Upwards of three hundred delegates were in attendance from various parts of Mary land, Delaware, and the District of Columbia. Reform in New York*?A report was pre sented to the New York Board of Aldermen on Wednesday evening, January 3, on this impor tant subject. Among other ^radical measures, it recommends the imprisonment in the penitentiary of all keepers of gambling houses for one year, common gamblers for two yearg,. all adulterers in the city prison for twelve calendar months. AH guilty of seduction to the State prison for three years; any person selling liquor to an habitual drunkard or boy uuder fifteen years of age, to be find $25 for the first offence, $50 for the second, and imprisonment one month for the third. Any theatre manager who admits women of ill fame into his establishment is to be fined $100. The Execution of Hokn, tJie Murderer.? ?The execution of Adam Horn, for the murder of his wife, will take place in Baltimore this day, at noon precisely. The gallows on which the cul prit is to be hung wjll be erected near the north west corner of the jail yard, and will be of such a height that the execution may be distinctly seen from without the wall. We learn that the Sheriff of Baltimore City and County, deeming it to be his duty under the law, will superintend the exe cution in person. More Confessions.?The Providence Chron icle states that there are rumors in circulation that E. K. Avery has confessed the murder of Sarah Maria Cornell, and that the statement may be looked for in a few days. The Chronicle says: "The story goes that Avery has lately died in Ohio, and that on his death bed he made a con fession, whjch lie desired should be transmitted to this State. By this confession he not only acknowledges the death of Miss Cornell, but of two other females likewise. He says he went to the spot of the murder in Tiverton for the express purpose of murdering Miss Cornell? that he had resolved, if all contingencies failed to conceal his guilt, long before he undertook it? or that he only delayed taking life after this de termination in the hope that the drugs which had been administered to prpduce abortion might re lieve him of the crime. We learn he further says (recollect this is but rumor) that Miss Cor nell begged hard for her life when she found what was his determination ; but that seeing nothinc but disgrace in the birth of her child, and count! mg everything upon sustaining the adventitious reputation which he held in the community, be sides feeling a hellish desire to continue his libidi nous course under the cloak of sanctity which'he then wore, and which so much favored his unholy desires, he did the work of death, and then left his victim in the position in which she was found, in the hope that it would be believed that she had committed suicide. The story further goes that since the moment of'his first murder Avery ack nowledges that his brain has been covered with coals of living fire." These, it should be recol lected, are but rumors of a confession, and should be received as such.?N. Y. Suu. The Murder of Mr. Sjprague?The Provi- ! dence Journal says?" A girl, ten years of age, who lives in the family of Nicholas Gordon, has been examined in relation to the. murder of Mr. Sprague. Iler testimony has not been made pub lic, but it is said to be important, and to fasten suspicion still more strongly upon the men ar rested. We are informed that we were mistaken m saying that Nicholas Gordon had threatened Mr. Sprague. There are various rumors afloat-, but nothing beyond what we have published has reached us in a reliable shape. Hardly any doubt is entertained that the persons arrested were con cerned in the deed." An Acquittal.?The New Yprk Tribune says: Se.gle, whom we have spoken of as having been arrested at Syracuse for shooting Blahe and other riuters who attempted to break up a Ger man ba held at Ins house on new years eve. has tinn" i f aCqmUe<L ]t appeared on examina tion, that a conspiracy had been formed bv the rowdies of Syraonse and Salt Point to break up the ball at all events ; and Mr. S. having heard of it, prepared hunself to meet the emergency.

Some two weeks ago, we cut the following thrilling pannage irorn the New York correspond ence of the Louisville Journal, since which, we have noticed it in several contemporary printH. The heart sickens at the startling, and, so far as we are informed, graphic picture. Since the evils of the existing 6ocial system are deemed by well-ordered minds inevitable; were it not well that philanthropists should unite in gome system to mitigate them, and to alleviate, since they can not cure, this agonizing disease in the body politic 1 1 Thursday and Thursday night it snowed stead ily and deliciously ; and on Friday we celebrated that great metropolitan holiday, " ihe first sleii/li. 'rtgoj- the season:" The city looked as- if a tre mendous bid masijue had been suddenly turned into the streets, in the height of its revelry. The scarfs and leathers of the laughing ladies?the gaudily trimmed and luxurious Cougar-skins [ which enwrapped the fairy cars, that glided like | dreams oyer the sparkling suaw?the ring of tbe merry bells?the crack of the eager whip, and the prancing and caracolrng of thousands of sleek and well fed steeds, attached to tbe most exqui site and graceful vehicles?aJl presented such a v?rll Hiffi rai'r and glowin? ,liiar'ty that it was I , to 8?y to an invitation to go sleigh-riding. e But beneath th:s musical and flashing surge of joyous and happy life slowly heats the agoni zed heart of the suffering poor. The starving children press for food around the knees of their shivering mother-the maddened lather and husbind, without a shelter for his offspring clasps his pale wife in mute despair, and calcu lates the chances of robbery or suicide?often resolving upon the one, and, frightened by the cries of his hungry children from his purpose driven headlong into the other. Oh, I could wring your heart with real and living pictures of such misery and destitution as seem to belie the noble destiny of humanity and disprove ihe goodness of Omnipotence! I could take you, a h ve minuter walk from the crowded and brilliant throng in Broadway, to the dens of crime and starvation, where man seems a brute, woman a fiend, and childhood?tbe season of" joy and smiles a wretched and bitter mockery, without hope or heart The gorgeous rainbow that spans the whirling torrent of metropolitan life , rests its bases on such dark depths of misery and crime as it makes one shudder but to think , of. 1 he cdnunual excitement of life in a great city?the struggle of baffled aspirants after social distinction?the utter heurtlessness begotten by the rivalries-of an insensate money aristocracy create, as it were, a determination of blood to the brain, which ends in prostitution, intemper ance, and theft?the apoplexy and epilepsy of the social system. Many'of our most dashing men. inthe higher circles draw their supplies of money fifom the precarious fortunes of the faro bank or rouge el noir, and when these fail, for gery, swindling, or theft, becomes their only re sort. Many of pur most blaze and distingue women, who give tone to fashionable society, and at whose nod the doors of every circle fly open in haste to give them welcome, draw their I mcoiue, which supports them in all their extrav agant follies, from sou-ces that must not be men tioned in my page, but which may be too readi I i CoUJdL the " Mysteries of New I . j , fairly and honestly written, the exag gerated rhodomontade and raw-head-and-bloodv bones of Kugene Sue would apperr insignificant ^ comparison. I shall never give you names, either directly or by implication?nor will I re cite personal and individual adventures: but if time serves me, as I think it will, during the long winter evenings, I shall endeavor to present | y?? ??me pictures of metropolitan life in a Re j pub ic, that may not only interest the mere reader of gossip, but furnish food for thought to I the wise and good. There are rank ulcers fes tering beneath the surface of things here, that it would make you perhaps shudder to have laid open with the scalpel and a firm haud. After aff cut bono ? I will think upon it.
