THE WHIG STANDARD.'
" Flag of tike free J thy folds shall fly. The Htm of hope and triumph FOR PRE8IDENT, HENRY CLAY. FOR VICE PRESIDENT, THEODORE FRELINGHUYSEN. WASHINGTON. WEDNESDAY EVENING, AUG. 28, 1844 THE CAT OUT OP THE BAG. The Madiaonian is very anxious to repel the imputation upon the President that he is to be rewarded by Mr. Polk for his withdrawal by & foreign mission. That paper concludes an arti cle upon the subject thus : " That President Polk will be the friend of Mr. Tyler's true friends we know very well, and we are not disposed to deny it, since there is no ne cessity for it. But that he and Mr. Tyler have M bargained," as haB been insinuated by their ene mies, no honorable man can ever be made to be lieve." So it turns out that there was a consideration after all. Mr. Tyler's friends are to be provided for, "we know very well,*' says the Madiaonian ; that is to say, his sons and sons-in-law, first, se cond, and third cousins are to live upon the pub lic treasury for the next four years, if Mr. Polk is elected. And then there was no difficulty in persuading the Captain that he would be the unanimous choice of the Locofoco party to suc ceed Mr. Polk at the expiration of four years. Captain Tyler would believe that; and the New York delegation of office holders and party hacks who negotiated the bargain (for a foul, corrupt bargain it was) could have met with no difficulty on that point. The bargain, after all, is improperly termed a " coalition," which in politics may be compared to a partnership in law. The nature of the trans action is that of a " bargain and sale.1' The gross depravity of this transaction cannot be wondered at by any one who remembers the advertisement made by Mr. Cushing in the win ter of 1843, that the President was desirous of selling out. The offer was then poked at the Whigs, but being spurned with indignation, the auctioneer turned to the Locofocos. That party being in more prosperous circumstances than now, refused the bargain likewise; but the over tures being renewed in their present strait, they have gladly accepted the Captain's terms. NORTH CAROLINA. " But how did old North Carolina go into ac tion, and how did she come out of it ? Why, she went in with a majority of nearly thirteen thou sand for the Whigs at the Presidential election of 1840, and she came out with a majority at the recent Gubernatorial election of only between three and four thousand for the Whig candidate, experiencing a loss of between nine and ten thou sand votes, between the period of the two elec tions ! This is the way that " the old glorious North Carolina" came out of action." [Madisonian. If the Madisonian pleases, we will go a few years further back?say 1832, when the Locofoco majority in North Carolina was thirty-five or forty thousand ! Comparing the late election with that of 1832, the Whig gain in the State will range somewhere about thirty thousand !?and, accord ing to the Madisonian's mode of calculation, put ting the Locofoco loss to the Whig gain, the j change in the relative state of parties will ap. proximate to fifty thousand votes in favor of the Whigs ! ! But any candid man will admit the absurdity of going boyond the last election for a comparison with the present. In 1842, the Locofocos had a majority of thirty in the Legislature?now, the Whigs have twenty-four! It is true that, in 1842, the WhigB elected their candidate for Go vernor ; but every body in North Carolina knows how that happened. The Whig candidate, Gov. Morehead, was one of the most popular men in the State, and a western man, while his oppo nent, Mr. Henry, is one of the most unpopular, and is resident in the southeast. In North Car olina, some degree of jealousy exists between the east and west ends of the State ; and the popular strength being in the west, Mr. Morehead'a large majority, when the Legislature was all the other way, is easily accounted for. Besides Mr. Hen ry, in addition to his'unpopularity, left Nrrth Carolina in the midBt of the campaign, and "con vened" at the Virginia Springs for the benefit of his health. Such are the causes which conspired swell ihe majority for Morehead, in 1842, to four thousand seven hundred and odd, while the Le gislature was largely Locofoco. But in the late contest between Messrs. Gra ham and Hoke, circumstances conspired to favor the Locofoco candidate. Mr. Graham, it is true, ia equally popular with Mr. Hoke, but the latter had the advantage of position, being from the west, while Mr. Graham, living in the central part of the State, could enlist no local prejudice in hi. favor Erory body in North Carolta. feel, and know, thai Mr. Cl?y'? majority ovor Mr. Polk will far exceed the Gubernatorial majority. Mr. Clay is highly popular, while Mr. Polk ib un known for good or ill. It is uncandid. unfair, and deceptive, to com pare the recent elections with those of 1840, when an intervening election has totally changed the position of parties. The Whigs were defeated, in 1842, in consequence of the perfidy and deser tion of Tyler, which temporarily threw their ranks into disorder. The late elections, in every in stance, show that they have recovered from the reverse. aTImstinction. The Locofocos attempt to recriminate the charge of disunion upon the Whigs, by alleging that some of the Northern Whigs have threaten ed a dissolution of the Union in event of the an nexation of Texas. Admit the fact; but the dis tinction lies here?and it is a wide one. The No. them men threaten a dissolution if Texas is annexed?that is to say, if the Federal Compact ij changed, and others not parties to it admitted to its privileges. But tho Southern men threaten dissolution it Texas is not annexed?if the com pact is not changed. Every one can see the wide difference between the cases. But an illustration will render the c&bo more plain: Two men, A and B, being in partnership as merchants, for in stance, they agree to abide a certain compact, to which the law will bind them. If A says to B, " sir, unless you admit C into partnership with us 11 will not abide the compacthe will not be sustained in his demand by the law, but will be held to his agreement. On the other hand, if B says to A, " sir, I will not consent to admit C into the compact, and if you attempt to force him in against my consent the compact is broken, and 1 will not abide by it" In such a resolution B would be sustained by the law. WHAT'S THE MATTER. At the Locofoco gathering on Monday night in front of the Globe office a likeness of Gen. Jack son was exhibited to the crowd, and three cheers proposed for Old Hickory?but it was no go !? No response was heard from the faithful! Again the cheers were called for?but the same silence was preserved ; and the picture was thrown aside in quiet. So the Old Hero's name has lost its power with the Democracy?even at the Globe office ! ! Will wonders ever cease ? THE ALEXANDRIA ORATOR. Mr. Seeley, the Pop Gun of Alexandria Loco focoism, (and formerly the Baron Munchausen of Shenandoah county, Va.,) was again called on unexpectedly on Monday night, to enlighten the Democracy ! When does this distinguished apol ogiit expect to be prepared ? If he will inform us, we will notify the world, so that his long pro ' mised enlightenment of the people may be listened to by the faithful. When will Mr. Seely be pre pared 1 GOOD ADVICE. Mr. Hoban, in his harangue at the Locofoco gathering on Monday, most earnestly cautioned his party not to wager any thing upon the issue of the coming Presidential election ! Why did he not speak out a little sooner?before the Seng stacks, &c, had put their foot into it 1 It was very clever in Mr. H., however, to apprise the Democracy of the certainty of defeat It appears that we, (as well as the New York Tribune, from which we copied it,) were wrong in stating that Indiana had voted for Mr. Clay in 1824; and it seems, by a letter from the Hon. John W. Davis, of Indiana, to a friend in this city, that he is not altogether pleased that his asser tion that " Henry Clay never did receive the vote of Indiana, and he necer will," should be called in question. Mr. Davis is right in saying that Indiana never has voted for Mr. Clay, and we cheerfully make the correction; but when he as serts that she never will, we take issue, and shall show that be is not so good a prophet as he wishes to be considered. Previous to the late election in Indiana, (July 20,) he wrote a letter, amid all the preparation for the contest, which appeared in the Baltimore Republican, and in which he says: " I cannot resist the inclination to give you the news of our glorious prospects in Indiana. Dur I ing a residence of twenty-three years among the j Hoosiers, I never have seen any thing to be com pared with the energy and enthusiasm that now pervale our friend?. * * h The Whig party in this region look something after the fashion of a fellow in the collapse stage of cholera, ? only more so.' Poor fellows, they are the very picture of defeat already." The above was Mr. Davis's opinion before the election; "glorious prospects" in Indiana, and glorious was the defeat; greit as was the "en ergy and enthusiasm" that pervaded his friends, greater proved the indomitable Whig spirit; and if it is true that the Whig party were really "in the collapse stage of cholera, 4 only more so,'" what must have been the condition of his party to have allowed so prostrate a foe to so rout them. Mr. Davis is welcome to the shadow he pictured i to himsell ; we shall rejoice over the substance. We would like to ask him one question, however, before ?ve close : " How do you like the nomina tion, Davis?" The Richmond Times and Compiler, heretofore a neutral journal, has hoisted the Whig flag, and will do good service in the causc of sound prin ciples. James G. Hopkins, of St. Lawrence county, jSew York, has been nominated as the Whig can. didate for Congress from the eighteenth district, composed of St. Lawrence and Lewis counties. ABOLITIONISM ? LOCOFOCOISM - DR. DUNCAN ?GOV. MORTON. The Southern Locofocoa are in the hibit of charging Mr. Clay and tho Whigs with being al lied with the abolitionists. Now, lei them look at this picture. Dr. Duncan, the great Locofoco leader in Ohio, when a candidate before the peo ple in 1838, wan called upon by a society of abo litionists to know his views of slavery, to which he responded as follows : "There is no man living, perhaps, who is more deadly hostile to slavery than I am. My feelings, my education, the circumstances that have sur rounded roe through life, together with my prin ciples of what I believe to constitute the natural political rights of man, all conspire to make me abhor it as one of the greatest evils that exists on the face of the earth. Yes, greater in ita moral effects and corrupting tendencies than all other human evils put together. It is not only a moral and political evil within itself, or intrinsically so of the darkest and most damning character, but in all its bearings and cffects calculated to pro duce the most fatal effects on both the moral and political institutions of our country. It is an evil that has, does now, and will in all time to come, while it exists, involve in it, as well in its present position as in its future operations, crime, fraud, robbery, murder, and death. For the truth of what I say as to its present effects upon the in stitutions of the country, I have only to refer you to a vie w of the slave States in our Union, and a comparison between the relative condition of the improvements of them and the free States. You see the free States happy and flourishing, to the admiration and astonishment of all who see them. Public improvements and private prosperity are swift and ahead in the race, while, on the other hand, poverty, lean and hungry sterility, and squa lid wretchedness, seem to cover the face of the land, in many parts, where slave institutions have a residence. Cross the line that separates the free from the slave States, or stand upon it and look across the former : you will 6ce comparative ly all life, and happincos, and prosperity, both public and private; but turn your eyes upon the latter and survey it?every thing material (except a few of tho wealthy proprietors) bearing the im press of poverty and dilapidation; all look as if pestilence and famine had been making their sad innovation. The anger of God and vengeance of Heaven seem to rest upon every thing upon which you cast your eyes. Every prospect seems to be withered and wilted by the frown and disapproba tion of avenging justice and violated humanity.? In short, almost every institution, every prosper ity, public and private, 6eems to be sickening and dying from the corrupting and corroding effects of slavery. But the curse be on the heads of those who sustain suih an institution Equally in point is the following extract of a letter from Governor Morton, of Massachusetts, another great light of Locofocoiam. Writing to Merlin Eddy, in 1837, he says: " I DEEM SLAVERY TO BE THE GREATEST CURSE AND THE MOST PORTENTOUS EVIL WHICH A RIGHT EOUS God [Take not the name of the Lord thy God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guilt less who taketh his name in vain !] ever inflict ed upon a nation, and that every effort consist ent with moral duty, and the Constitution, and the laws of the Union, ought to be made to miti gate, and, if possible, to extirpate it from the land. " That Congress has the control of the whole subject within the District of Columbia, I enter tain no doubt. I have seen two droves of human beings, manacled and chained together, driven like cattle by a driver, under the wails of the Capitol, in which were assembled the Represent atives of a People, proud and boastful of their liberty. Can such things be Buffered to continue without bringing down the vengeanco of an of fended Deity. "In relation to the admission of new States, with power to hold slaves, I need do no more than refer to my recorded votes against the admission of Missouri with this power. That opposition, which it required some courage and firmness to persevere in, would doubtless have proved suc cessful U" but for the extraordinary influence and extraordinary efforts of one man, (Henry Clay,) who was supposed by some to have resort ed to extraordinary means to accomplish his pur pose." ?rjl Polk's duplicity on the Tariff.?Mr. Rhett, the leader of the Chivalry, bears testimony to the double dealing of the Locofoco candidate in rela tion to the tariff. In a speech delivered in Or angeburg, S. C., on the 5th instant, and reported in tho Charleston Mercury, he said : " Nothing is to be hoped from the Presidential election, Mr. Polk has already been trimming his sails so as to catch the breath of both North and South. His profession in favor of a revenue tariff for incidental protection?for the protection of all interests, and his adoption of the Baltimore resolution, arc three gigantic humbugs, which might blind, and would certainly betray us.? There is no redress to be expected from him " Whig speakers, confront the Locofoco orators with this testimony from a witness of their own. Vermont.?Messrs. Foot, Marsh, and Colla mer, the present Whig members of Congress from Vermont, have each been nominated for re election, and will each be re-elected by a hand some majority. Geo. B. Chandler is the Whig candidate in the Fourth District, against Dilling ham. ? A Paris letter states that it is " definitively de termined that Louis Phillippe will visit Queen Victoria, at Windsor Castle, in the month of Sep tember. The King will leave Treport at about eleven o'clock on the 15th of that month, and will proceed to Portsmouth. His stay in England will not exceed a week." The Hon. William C. Preston and family have arrived at New York from Charleston. The tolls on the North Branch (Pennsylvania) Canal, up to the 1st instant, show an increase over the corresponding period of last year, of more than fifty per cenL The Danvillo Democrat re marks that this fact shows the amount of busi ness done on this important work, in consequcnce of the ronewal of the iron business in various places along the line, which may be solely attrib uted to the beneficial effects of the present tariff. tHE PEOPLE MOVING I EAST TENNESSEE. r'?ra the Jonehborough (Tonn.)

KnoxvillKi Auj. 15, 1844. l ne great Maes Meeting of U,e Whigs of EaBt I enne88ec, at this pluco, after a glorious storm of two days and nights, has now closed, and thous ands are on their way to their homes to toll their neighbors what great things they have seen and heard. Never shone the sun on as large a gathering ? 'n ^a8t 'ennessee, or a more joyous and lively group than has been congregated here for the two days and nights past. Tippecanoe times have all been thrown into the shade here ! 1 he enthusiasm rf the Whigs assembled here, from every county in this division of the Slate, was unbounded, and far surpassed the " whirl W"iQ/in ex?'tement" that swept over the country m 1?40. \es?glorious as were those good old 1 ippecanoe times?great as was the enthusiasm, and strong and resistless as was the feelirxr in avor of " Tippecanoe and tyler too," it is excelled by the whig spirit of'44! Indeed, the present I '"^'cations warrant us in saying that Henry Clay and 1 lieodore Frelinghuysen will almost be elect ed as they were nominated?by acclamation! lhe number of persons present at this glorious demonstration, is variously estimated. By a dis mguished Kentuckian, who is accustomed to large assemblies, it was estimated at 30,000 persons, iiy others, known to be good judges, it was esti mated at 2o,000, at least. We set it down at twkntvt thousand, the lowest estimate we have Heard, that we may not exaggerate. And of one [ thing we are certain, no three Conventions we have ever been at in this end of the State, all thrown together, would equal this. East Ten nessee poured forth her thousands to this meet, ing, who came into Knoxville in every mode of conveyance, with banners streaming in the clear breeze of heaven, and music?soul-cheering mu sic, and electrifying songs?filling the air with | "arrnonious concorj 0f svveet 80Ufl(j8 I he ladies?Heaveu smile upon them! attended I !", ,PJnntnber8,' and wi,h 'heir beautiful faces reathed in smiles, looked upon our large, and patriotic throng, while the rich and beautiful ban nere, worked by their own fair hands, waved in >numph all around ! It was indeed a noble spec tacle, and one well calculated to make the heart ot every freeman rejoice ! The procession on the day we organized was [ grand and imposing beyond the description of ongue or pen. Banners with appropriate devices were carried in the van of each county delegation.

GREAT WHIG GATHERING IN BUCKS COUNTY. THE SPIRIT OF '76 AND '40 REVIVED. If there is one individual in the Union who en tertains any doubts in regard to the result of the next election in this State, wo would advise him to attend some of the meetings held in the dif ferent counties. In Bucks county the Whig watchfires burn brightly, and by them is our path to victory splendidly illuminated. The enthu siasm and patriotism is not confined to the males, but all who have attended our gatherings have observed that the ladies partake largely of the spirit which characterised those females who were prominent actors in their proper sphere during our revolutionary struggle. May the blessings crfHeaven ever rest upon the lovely and beau The meeting at Newtown on Saturday last was the largest and most enthusiastic ever held ir Bucks county. We went in company with the delegations from Oxford, Lower Dublin, More! land, and By berry. We left Bustleton at about him ochlock' A- Each delegation carried On* h appropriate mottoes a id devices. t?on onattracted much atten l r"1 antiq?'ty- It was a revo CrwM ^ r?i ?I' 3 ?n 'l Wure represented the ess o Liberty and a monument to those offi cers who were killed on the battle field, toge ther with other beautiful designs. It was nre mT 'p/ a whig of '76 10 the ?*ford Whigs of :4', 1 he procession which left Bustleton, con sisting of delegations from the townships above named, with vehicles drawn by two, four, six, and eight horses, and preceded by the Washing ton brass band of this city, moved directly to Newtown, under the direction of marshals pre viously appointed. The choir or the National Clay Club having attended the meeting at Bus tletown on Friday evening, also proceeded from that place to Newtown, arriving at the latter place at about eleven o'clock. At an early hour in the morning the delegates from the different townships in Bucks and adjoin ing counties came pouring in with banners, &c., &c. Some came in wagons, some on honeback, and others on foot. Each delegation was honored by th? presence of ladiea, all of whom seemed to participate in the joy and enthusiasm of the occa sion. Were we to attempt to describe the appear, ance of one half of the delegation#, wo should re quiro more room than our columns afford, and inoreforo we must at precent content ourselves by giving a general, though imperfect account of the gathering. A oortion of one delegation was,drawn by 52 horses, guided by 26 riders?representing the dif ferent States. There were also several other vehicles drawn by a very larije number of horses, and decorated with flags bearing various devices. At about 2 o'clock a procession was formed? and under the command of the Chief Marshal and his assistants, it marched to an orchard, a short distance north of the (own, where a large rostrum had been erected and seats prepared for the ladies. In the procession was a large num. ber of Whig ladies. While the delegations in the rear of the procession were entering the or chard, the choir sang three or four songs ; after which the meeting was organized l>y the unani mous election of Dr. Phineas Jenks, as Presi dent, and also of a large number of Vice Presi dents and Secretaries. At this time there were in front of the stand at least two thousand of the most beautiful and intelligent ladies in Bucks county. The assemblage was so large that no one attempted a computation of the number pre sent. Suffice it to say that they occupied three or four acres of ground ! The stage was or namented with wreaths, festoons, and banners, wrought by fair hands, and above the speakers' stand we observed that very " same old coon." After the officers had taken their seats, the audience was ably though briefly addressed by Josiah Randall, Joseph R. Chandler, and Wm. B. Reed, Esqs., of this city. Before the first speaker was introduced to the meeting, a motion was made and carried, that three or four of the gentle men who were engaged to speak, as well as some of the officers, should proceed to the town and organize another meeting, in order to aflord all an opportunity of hearing Whig principles ex plained by able advocates of the cause. Accord ingly, another meeting was organized in front of Hough's Hotel. Thousands gathered around the temporary stand, and listened to eloquent ad dresses delivered by Hon. E.Joy Morris, and Na than Sargeant, Esq., both of this city. This meet ing adjourned at ai>out four o'clock, and immedi ately reassembled in the yard back of the tavern, where speeches were delivered by Gen. Rogers of Tennessee, and John B. Mitchell, Esq., of Doylestown. Several persons present who have attended very many meetings, estimated the entire assem blage at Newtown on Saturday, at between fif teen and twenty thousand ! The enthusiasm manifested has never been exceeded at any ga thering in this State. Some of the ladies in at tendance came from townships twenty or thirty miles disiant, and when they arrived they seemed to be ready and willing at once to participate in a proper manner in the exercises and enthusiasm of the occasion. Those who resided in Newtown made every possible effort to accommodate their sisters from abroad, and all rendered efficient as sistance in the preparation of banners, festoons, and whig emblems. Such patriotism on the part of the ladies, can not fail to incite their lathers, brothers, and husbands, to renewed exertions in behalf of our common country. Long may they live to perform those services which have won for thetn the thanks of all patriotic Whigs ; and it is the fervent hope of all honest and enlighten ed citizens, that our nation may ever hereafter experience the blessings which will be secured by the permanent establishment of the principles advocated by whig men, and sanctioned by whig ladies. The Whigs of Bucks county are coming in their might to the support of the pure democra'ic prin ciples of our party ; and in October and Novem ber next, they will*boldly manifest their patriot ism by nobly coming to the support of Clay, Fre linghuysen and Makkle. NANSEMOND COUNTY AWAKE. TWENTV-FIVE HUNDRED WIIIOS IN COUNCIL ! From the Portsmouth (Va.) Herald. Thursday last was a glorious day in old Nanse mond. We proceeded hither early in the morn ing with some three hundred Whigs, ladies and gentlemen, from Norfolk and Portsmouth; and had the cars provided for the occasion been ade quate to convey them, we believe that one hun dred or one hundred and fifty more would have been with us. Though the clouds lowered gloomily, and though the rain had fallen slightly ere we started, the eager throng pressed onward, filling the cars to overflowing, and occupying each place about them upon which a passenger could hang. At forty minutes past eight the train was fairly in motion. The " horse of iron nerves and sinews" put forth his strength and snorted to the breeze?the welkin rang with loud huzzas, and the music of the Norfolk Band went up in pleasing sounds amid the wild and mirthful dm. Cloud* flitted before us, dark and threatening as tho^e that have often beJimmed the onward course of the noble Whigs of the country, and showers fell, chilling and depressing, like the mildew of Loco foco rule?but we sped onward, seeing the silvery lining that every cloud presents, and seeking to get beyond the sombre face, to view on its coun terside the bright reflection of the golden sun. Without accident, and in high mirth, we reach ed Suffolk ; but ere we beheld the vast multitude in the streets their welcome rent the air in cheer ing long and loud. While the ladies were conducted to the en campment ground, and placed in their more eli gible seats, a procession was formed in the main street of the town, under the command of Gen. Crump and others as marshals, and displaying the appropriate banners of our country and of her true friends, the great Whig Party. We then pro ceeded by a circuitous route to the scene of the day'* ceremonies, receiving the loud and encour aging shouts of many of the People, and the still more welcome though noiseless plaudits of the lovely fair, from windows, doors, and porticos. The meeting was called to'order by Dr. Butt, and ably addressed by Mr. Whitfield, Capiain Samuel Potts, of Portsmouth, Col. Meredith, of Richmond, R. I\ Daniel, Esq., of Richmond, Mr. Smith, of Murfresboro', N. <). Several good W hig songs were sung, and at a late hour in the afternoon the assembly dispern ed. T he Norfolk and Portsmouth visiters were accompanied to the cars by a large concourse of people, and a fervent " adieu" followed them as ? hey returned homeward. 1 ho number of persona in attendance is gener ally computed at more than 2?00, and of these 500 were ladies. No circum ance whatever marred the day's festivities. Peace, order, good feeling, Whig like, marked the progresa of the day.
