He was erectly respected and esteemed by the community in which lie lived, and remarkabh for hfrt fpeu ant! frank liberality, which he "generous-ly bestowed upon all. Asa politician, he was a ftrotig at d ardent supporter of the B&me cause we advocate, and a person well versed in a" krowledjje-of the political affairs of his country. As one who enjoyed his friend r) ip, we offer our humble meed to his praise. Iteguiescat in pare. More "Private Business." Dfdr.itiWirt?

We have been requested to publish the vote pfeaclv,cotiiity in Tennessee, by many of our friends, in order that natives of that State, re siding in Mississippi, may sec with pride how the "home of the thundering lion" has rebu ked Mr. Van Buren and his army of office holders. We never had any fears for Tennes see, conlidcnt that the "unpurchased und unpurch;i8able freeman of that State wore not to be swerved from their duty to thir country by the ravings of the "Lion of the Hermitage," or the preachings of that great est of Demagogues, James K. Polk. TliNXKSSKR- COMPLETE. Hakkisox. Van Buren, IS 'OS fj-The population of New York City, is ascertained to be 313,629, whicn is' equal to ih" whole State of Mississippi. Tiiis shows an increase of. many thousands. There were 43,602 names placed upon the registry lists of that cit v at the late election, being 2,762 more than were last s;rinr. Rhode Island. . The majority for Harrison and Tyler in Rhode Island is 1,92. The number of votes polled in that State is 6,5H, She has gone for the Whigs, (to u.e the language of a strong !dco in , there parts.) with a perfect rush! This is one of the States claimed some moths fince by the friends of Mr. Van Buren. "It i the lot of humanity to err." (& correspondent of the Southern Jour nal, writing from M)i roe, Perry county. Mi., speaking of the result of the election, says; "They (the Whigs,) may n w hang up their hruiped arms for monuments.' Whiggery is going down, down." We know not how fur tunitft this gentleman may have been in for mer prophecies, but we opine the result in this Stat r it'irr varies from his calculations. Do tiip returns vone warrant you in the assertion Ihit "VVh'grry is '-ln down!" We reckon not we guru not. There may be some State more deserving "the iltg." but for her base subserviency in t'rn binding to Federalism, Mississippi cer tiinl? richly merits "the stripes." Free Trader. Citizens of Mississippi! this sentiment is from the pen of an office holder under the ad rnin'stration of Martin Van Buren. Can you read it without feeling that if you had this pnmpered minion within your reach, yru could administer the "stripes"' upon his back with t.ie bet?t graoe imaginable State Treasurer.
