Judga Berrien, of Georgia, on behalf of the
committee appointed to inform Henry Clay of
his nomination as the candidate for the Presiden
cy, read to the convention Mr. Clay'H letter of
acceptance.
The Hon Daniei, Webster, of Massachusetts,
now being loudly called for, came forward upon
the stand an<J addressed the convention in his
usual eloquent manner.
Mr. WEBSTER'S SPEECH.
We can only characterize this speech this
morning, and to speak of it in u few words. It
was a hearty and entire response to the nomina
tion of Heny Clay. Daniel Webster spoke like
a true Whig, and a good friend of Henry Clay.
After Mr. Webster had concluded, T. Yates
Walsh, Esq., rose, and, on behalf of the commit
tee of two from each State in the Union, offered
the following resolutions, which were unanimous
ly adopted :
Resolved., That this Convention have received
with the most profound and grateful sensibility the
tidings of the nomination of Henry Clay as the
Whig candidate for the Presidency in the ap
proaching election. That, recognising in this
nomination but the expression of the universal
and cherished wish of the Whig?, they hail it
with the peculiar greeting due to him who is,
above all other men, the man of the Union, the
history of whose whole life is the announcement
and expression of the genuine sentiment, princi
pie, and purpose of the Whig party.
Resolved, That this Convention have heard
with the liveliest gratification the nomination of
Theodore Frelinuhusen as the candidate for
the Vice Presidency, f.ssured that in his fidelity
to his country, in his undoubted attachment to the
principles of the Whig party, in his eminent ser
vice, approved ability, and moral purity, the Peo
ple have the best security for the honest discharge
of the duties of the station for which he has been
selected.
Resolved, That this Convention do therefore
most cordially ratify and confirm the said nomina
tions, and do pledge tnemselves and the Whig
party to the vigorous support and futherance of
the same, with all the zeal and by all the effort
which may become good citizens striving in the
cause of their country.
Resolved, That this Convention re-affirm and
proudly proclaim their adherence to the distinc
tive Principles and Measures of the Whig party,
now known of all men, and cherished by a large
majority of the American People, as follows :
1. A Tariff which shall of itself provide suffi
cient revenue to pay the debts and defray the
expenditures of the Federal Government?such
Tariff so adjusted as equally to protect, encou
rage, and cherish in all its branches the Produc
tive Industry of the Country.
2. A National Currency, which shall be of
uniform par value in every part of the Union, and
which may be transmitted from one section to
any part of another without discount or depre
ciation, and at the smallest possible cost?to be
created by such means and instrumentalities as
shall commend themselves to the wisdom of the
next Whig Congress, counselled and aided, not
obstructed and thwarted, by a genuine Whig
President.
3. A fair and just distribution of the Proceeds
of the Public Lands among the several States of
the Union, to be by them devoted to purposes of
general and permanunt utility, thereby protecting
the common interest of all from aggression and
spoliation, preventing unnecessary and pernicious
fluctuations in the Tariff,and putting a stop to the
discreditable spectacle of a free and enlightened
Nation, year by year, devouring its substance and
steadily diminishing the broad patrimony be
queathed to it by the valor and sacrifices of an il
lustrious ancestry, to supply the waste and want
of its annual and ordinary expenditures.
Resolved, That the practical restriction of the
Veto power, which has grown by repeated en
croachments into a mighty engine of Executive
Despotism, the limitation of a President to a single
term, the retrenchment of our national expendi
tures by every practicable means ; the reform of
the now glaring abuse and corruptions growing out
of an unworthy bestowal of Executive patronage ;
and the general reduction of burthens and in
crease of benefits resulting to the people from the
existence and operations of the federal govern
ment, are objects for which the Whig party will
unceasingly strive until their efforts are crowned
with a signal and triumphant success.
Gov. Metcalfe, of Kentucky, followed and
spoke in his usual eloquence for the Whigs of
Kentucky and the Union.
The lion, Thomas Ewing, of Ohio, having been
called on, was received with rapturous applause.
He briefly vindicated himself for the part he had
taken with respecttj Mr. Tyler's Administration,
and 6poke warmly in favor of his old friends and
associates?Henry Clay and Theodore Freling
huysen.
Then came Edward Stanly, of North Carolina,
who expressed himself delighted with the scene
before him, and with the glorious Whigs around
him. He had been more than satisfied with the
nominations, and North Carolina would stand
by them.
Mr. Webster made a second speech at another
part of the stand, and was followed by Messrs.
Bolts, Crittenden, Huntingdon, and Stewart.
A resolution was adopted that the next Young
Men's Convention should be held in the city of
Philadelphia ; and after a few words from Mr.
Boardman, of Connecticut, the Committee of Ra
tification adjourned, sine die.
" Who hath redness of Eyes."?This in
terrogative " portion of divine scripture" is il
lustrated by an anecdote, related with most ef
fective dryness by a friend of ours. An elderly
gentleman, accustomed to " indulge," entered
the bar-room of an inn in the pleasant city of
H , on the Hudson, where sat a grave Friend
toasting his toes by llio fire. Lifting a pair of
green spectacles upon his forehead, rubbing his
inflamed eyes, and calling for a glass of brandy
toddy, he seated himself by the grate ; and as he
did so, he remarked to Uncle Broadbrim that his
?'eyes were getting weaker and weaker, and that
even spectacles did'nt. seem to do 'cm any good."
"'I'll tell thee, friend," replied the Quaker, "what
I think. I think if thee was to xoear thy specta
cles over thy mouth for a few months, thy eyes
would get sound again."
Mr. Ainos Bushrod, a Philadelphian, has a gold
watch which was worn by General Washington,
and a seal which bears that illustribus man's coat
of arms. These were bequeathed to their pre
sent owner's father by John A. Washington. The
watch is described as very beautiful and intrinsi.
cally valuable.
ORIGINAL SONG.
Waihuto** CirVi (Whj/S, lfl4f
Mr. Tower# i Will you have the goodliest to pub
lish the annexed song in the Standard. It was copied
from an original memorandum in the hands of a
friend* yesterday, at Baltimore, and 3ung in the great
Ratification Convention of that day. Yours, truly,
Andrew M. Barber.
Tune?" Old l)an Tucker.'1''
The skies are bright, our hearts are light!
In Baltimore the Whigs unite;
We'll set our songs to good old tunes,
For there i3 music in these old Coons.
Hurra, hurra! for the Coons are rising!
Hurra, hurra ! for the Coons are rising!
Hurra, hurra ! for the Coons are rising,
For Henry Clay and Frelinghuysen !
The Locos' hearts are very sore?
Tho' very scarce in Baltimore
For they begin to think, with reason,
That this will be a great Coon season!
Hurra, &c.
Old Frelingiiusen is a Jersey Blue,
A noble Whig, both good and true;
And we will make New Jersey feel
That we respect her own broad seal !*
Hurra, &c.
Now let the Locos raise their dander?
Even Amos K. dare not stand under?
For when they get into Ihe fight,
Lord! how the Jersey Coons will bite !
Hurra, &c.
Old Matty Van is a man of doubt?
He wires in and he wires out;
You can not tell, when on the track,
If he's going on or coming back !
Hurra, &c.
The Coon now looks abroad with pride ;
For who is there dare touch his hide ?
So give three cheers, and as many more,
For the noble Whigs of Baltimore!
Hurra, &c.
United, heart and hand, arc we,
From Northern lake to Southern Sea?
From East to West, the People's rising,
For Henry Clay and Frelinghuysen!
Hurra, &c.

TWENTY-EIGHTH CONGRESS,
FIRST SESSION.
FRIDAY, MAY 3, 1841.
SENATE.
The Senate remained in session long enough
to receive and refer several memorials i'rom N.
York and Michigan, against the annexation of
Texan, and then adjourned until Mond.iy next.
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
Mr. J. It INGERSOLL gave notioe of his in
tention to introduce bills ol the following titles,
viz :
A bill to prevent the public execution of crimi
nals under the laws of the United States.
A bill to confer jurisdiction in certain cases
upon consuls of the United States, in controver
sies between American citizens.
A bill to facilitate the proof of marriage in
cases of widows of officers and soldiers of the
Revolution.
A bill to abolish custom-house oaths.
Mr..VANCE, from the Committee on Claims,
reported, without amendment, several private
bills from the Senate.
The House then resolved itself into Commit
tee of the Whole, Mr. HOPKINS in the Chair,
and resumed the debate upon the " British" Ta
riff bill.
Mr. CHAPPELL, of Georgia, addressed the
committee in a speech chiefly directed against the
existing tariff; or rather the principles upon which
it was established.
Mr. SEVERANCE, of Maine, followed in a
speech replete with sound practical good sense.
After controverting some of the leading proposi
tions laid down by the gentleman who preceded
him, and contending that labor, not capital, was
the subject of protection, Mr. S. went on to de
tine his own position. Some gentlemen, he said,
were for stopping at a eortof halfway-house, and
contenting themselves with such protection as
was derived, incidentally, in the process of rais
ing revenue; but for himself, he maintained the
direct principle of protection?constant, perma
nent protection. Gentlemen might lay down what
theories they would, the fact was that commerce
and agriculture, and manufacture?, always had
been protected, and always would be ; and so too
of labor?the mechanic arts would be protected,
and labor would be represented on this floor; he
was himself a mechanic, a workingman, and
knew what belonged to this class of the commu
nity.
Mr. S. then examined the bill before the House
in detail, and insisted ,that the principles upon
which it was established carried with them their
own refutation, and would lead ultimately, if car
ried out, to destruction of revenue as well as
protection. If the bill were passed, he maintain
ed that not one-half of the revenue would be
raised under it necessary for the present demands
of the Government; and not one-third the aver?
age amount annually expended by Mr. Van Bu
ren's administration. If this bill becomes a law,
the maximum of duties, after one year had pass
ed, would be 28 per cent., and Mr. S. said this
was the very point where they stood in 1840,
when the revenue had fallen oft'to such an alarm
ing extent, that the Government was threatened
with bankruptcy.
Mr. MURPHY, of New York, made a labored
defence of the bill before the committee.
M. ROCKWELL, of Massachusetts, made his
debut in a very sensible and eloquent speech
a?ainst the bill.
The debate was continued until the usual hour
of adjournment.
it.?To be sick is no longer a misfor
tune, but a fault. Has any man a headache? Pe
ters' Cordial Lozenges will cure him in a few min
utes. Is any one troubled with a hacking cough,
which may end in consumption ? In Peters1 Cough
Lozenges he may find almost immediate relief ?
Worms kill many children. They can neither kill
nor hurt a child who is physicked with Peters'
Worm Lozenges. Hence wc may well conclude as
we began, that to be sick is no longer a misfortune,
but a fault. We say to all, go at once and procure
some of these famous Lozenges, at

ALL JOURNEYMEN PRINTERS in the country,
or in other cities, who contemplate coming to
New York, will do well to "look before they leap."
The " Franklin Typographical Association," from
the reports of its committees, and the investigations
of its officers, is p ossessed of ample and authentic
information concerning the state of the trade in this
city; and for the benefit of the craft abroad, they
state that journeymen who Hatter themselves with
the prospect of situations in New York, and come
with such expectations, will find how easily a man
can be deceived. There is now here a large body of
good workmen, who are unable to procure the means
of subsistence by their labor, as printers, in any re
spectable office; and the few rat offices?and we
are happy to say they are few indeed?are filled by
the cat-hating gentry, who always infest large cities.
DO NOT COME TO NEW YORK to get work, for
you will be disappointed. If you make a living, stay
where you arc ; and if there is work in your vicinity,
you may draw on this city for a hundred men, who
are now idle five days in a week. By order of the
Association. F. L. OTTLRSON,
