The treaty is dead and the party arc CoKI 5BECTIO.V. In the article first un der the Editorial head, in our las! paper, nine lines from the bottom of the col umn, we discover an omisMon of an en tire sentence, which completely destroys the sense. It should read thus: "Up on any que ions cf State policy which may spring up, and upon any which have f crved to divide the Democratic party in this State, veshall freely ami parlesslj ei jTis ovr opiniom.'' Then read, -'We bhall neither exhibit," &c. Rf.ir.KSER ti:e Puist r's wants. We hope our Iriciuis will i.ot forget our little dues while thry are here attending Court. They should reme-nber that the Printer's uli is made up f littles. Wc have enlisted to light, with what little ability we may possess, in the ranks of the De mocracy and surclv our friends will not withhold from us that liich the mot inefficient soldier never fil to receive Our Ratiuns. TJMr. J. Iloonncrr, .f the Steam Boat Raritan, has our thanks for late St. Lauis papers, if e are al-o under obligations to Messrs. G. If". Jcnks &. Co. for forwarding same. The latt Missouri Journal in commenting upon an article which ap peared in our paper of the 3 1st ult., taken from the St. Clairsville Gazette, says, "the man who would thus stain his columns with scurrility anil untruths, towards Mr. Clay, Mr. Polk, or any oth er individual, is many fathoms deeper in moral shame than the worst enemies of those gentleman have ever proclaimed them to be." 'Wherever the cap fits" says Johnny, '-there let it be placed." Well we advise the editor of the Jour nal to stick it right upon his own gourd. WTeareahvas led to distrust the man who claims for himself so much purity of motive as does Johnny, and who is ever ready to expose and magni fy some real or apparent foible of his neighbor. As to the article alluded to, o it will not be denied that it contains many truths loo many for the whigs, in these piping times. In conclusion, we deem it proper to exculpate oursclf from the charge of in consistency to state, that the article un der notice, appeared in our paper, while we lay upon a sick bed. The indiscre tion of a friend, to whom wc confided the charge of our paper, admitted the article without reflecting that we were yet sailing under the neutral flag. "To err, is human to forgive, di vine." 2r" We notice a contemptible fling at Judge Hunt, in the last Journal, charging him with recomnending Ihe people to vote for a dead man for Con gress. When the death of Mr. Parsons reached town, a few days before the elec tion, we believe Judge Hunt dropped the remark, that as the news could not be desseminated through the State, it might be well to vote the ticket as it stood, with the whole five names upon it. For this the Judge k denounced by the Journal correspondent, who, by the by, pretends to be a JJemocrat, but U unon God in his mercy to save the country from the curse of such Dcmoc- I Warrenton, Monday 30th Troy, Mon racy as is held by that staunch, unflicli- day, October 7th, and at St. Charles on jug Democrat, Ezra Hunt. informed that "Bed- ! berg" is "righted" in relation to "that. edin the Radical of last week or, if. - perchance lie did, the Reveille assures 1 1 ' I us that he has "mr: vrrcricdr and that , ithe veritable "- I c - on the Die Vernon, as usual, though somewhat p ile and thin."

They have all aloii cherished the h' 1 I p- 1 tliat the Sl;.(e isucs which have sec mcu to divide and distract I lie party, would . . . ..... Democrats ii. the Presidential contest. But disappointed in t in i r expectations I not going to quarrel over its dead car cass no but will adjourn all divisions, and proceed to the election of Polk and Dallas, the champions of popular liber ty. Tl The little Whii Juiunal across the way. says it is a source of gratifica tion to the universal whig party, that their candidate fur the Pre-idenoy de clared when he became a candidate, that he would not tin 'er any circiinManrcs, attend any political gathering during the canviss. The Journal says lurther, that Mr. Clay has "rigidly adhered to his determination. " Astonishing impudence! The editor ef that paper must be eilher politically and morally dirdinnest, or stupid bey M.d degree, to so far presume upon the crcbdilv of his readers as to publish for their perusal, such palpable, barefaced absurdities, lias he forgotten the public manner of Mr. Clay's recep tion at New Orleans, na God's IIolv Sabbalh day? Was it a source of grati fication to the great Whig party, that the crowd io their eagerness lo do honor to their j.inus-faced chief on that occasion, tramped to death a fellow being? Will the Journal answer? Again, it i e pil!v notorious, that Mr. Clay's recep tion at Mobile and other cities in hi Southern tour, was attended with all the pomp and parade that usually character ize the reception of public men in large cities unless perad venture, they travel in Ihe quiet manner cf private gentle men. CoNTEMPTiBLr.. The Polkiles, say some of the whig papers, are very busy in getting certificates from Gen. Jackson, in favcr of their candidate for the Presi dency. Such contcmptib'c, pitiful, low flung abiie, is every way worthy of a por:io:i of Ihe whig press. The fact that the moral character of James K. Polk, the Democratic candidate for the Presidency is spotless and pure, and shines with additional luster, when con trasted with that of Henry Clay, hurts flip f.-plin'r-t oflltesc iinseriinnloiis fierih , , n, ,, , tilers and as tliev call see no wav lo re- duce Mr. Polk lo a level with "the Mill Boy of the Slashes" in point of morals, pxeept by downright lveing and coarse personal abuse, not a few of the more profligate and unprincipled of the whig editors, are busy concocting and circulating the most vile and unblushing slanders against Col. Polk, Ihe hem of whose garment they are unworthy to touch. St. Luuin Uuiversity. He have been favored with a catalogue of the officers and btudents of this flourishing Institu tion.

For. if the whigs bav c the-right lo instruct him to vote against Col. Benton, they certainly have the right to instruct him to advocate and sustain the policy of the whig party in the next Legislature, disregarding the interests and policy o' the parly who elected him. Now w ith all due respect for the o pi lions of the Reporter and the Repub lican, we must be permitted lo say thai we view them as rather too latitudinoiis. HP.NRY CLAY. Thomas Jcflerson said of Henry Clay that he was merely a splendid orator; that he was not pntilled to the appella tion of a great statesman, for he w as in fact entirely destitute of any fixed po litical principle. And wc may infer from the subjoined f enltimenls of Mr. Clay, that the sage of Monticello wa not far wrong: at least, so far as settled and fixed political principles are con ' 11 cerned. Here is Mr. Clay's language: 'I am for a National Hank all na tions set us ihe example" Henry Clay. Again contra: "To renew the charter of the U. S. Bank, would be to sanction error and nervetuale cslrpatio. For such a vast portion of the circulating medium of the ' " ,. country in the Hand oj any corporation, j .,, , o will be danufrocs to oca LIUTRTIES. Ihnry Clay. We think it is high lime the whiggics had p pointed a committee for Mr. Clay. If he is suffered to go on declaring him- ' self in favor and opposed to a IT. S. Bank in favor and opposed to the pres ent tariff, kc. &.C., he w ill upset the norrinecr and scatter to the winds all the nicely laid schemes of his over zeal-1 ous friends. They should attend lo these j thiti"ro, and see that he does not declare ! - 1 himself in favor of slavery, because the : nothcrn abolitionists will not vote for a j man who is in favor of the slave trade.
