Governor MeXt'TT and St- r wai.khk Mr. Editor: In the AdvocatjCf Atiguft the l.'th you show by specification that A. C. Mc.'utt, tin present Govern'.!-, voire! for chartering fifteen of the Bank of this Stute. In this thou ing, Mr. I'thtor, you have really surprised me; fur I did net know until I eaw your Matt mi nt, that Mr. McNutt had ever vo ted for, or in any way countenanced a hanking int-ti tution, in all his life. 1 never saw him but once, and that m the lime when he made his electioneering speech at Liberty. '1 hu general drift of that speech was so hostile to a'l banks, as to make the impression that he had always been a decided vnti-bank man. J well recollect his saying, on tliut occasion, that "there is no republicanism within thu walls of a ban king house." Now, Mr. F.ditor, as I am quite igno rant of the doings iu banking houses, this sentence of Mr. McNutt may be just, fur any thing I know to the contrary. And if there really be no republic anism in a banking institution, it must be all aristocracy of course. What then must I think of the professed democracy of Mr. McNutt, w ho ted for filteen aris toeratic institutions, in the course of two or tiirec years? And if banks be su corrupting in their ten dency to republicanism, and so injurious also to the currency, as he now asserts, then Mr. McNutt has committed, against light and know ledge, un amount of political crime for which he can never atone. Fifteen aristoeratical institutions! Fifteen currency destroying machines ! No wonder then that our poli. tics are corrupted, and cur currency degraded far be. low that of any other Stute in the Union. I do pot find the Union Jiank in the list of banks for which Mr. McNutt voted. No, he voted against that, after recommending it. Now the Union L'ank is foun ded upon a solid and ample capital, even the real es tate of resident citizens, the abiding cultivators of th' oil j and the object of it is to enable the planters gen erally to hold stock, or obtain loans, on the security of their own fast immoveable property a privilege which they cannot enjoy in the other banks. If there be a righteous and safe principle of banking in any State, that of the Missirsippi Union Pank is one. But Mr. McNutt opposed this general and equitable insti tution, whilst he gave his support to the local and worse than worthless banks, w hich have contributed so much to injure the currency, the credit, and the character of our State. You show also, Mr. Editor, by quotations from Mr. McNutt'i own circulars, that ho recommended an in crease of banking capital in 1835; and that in no less than two years thereafter, he complaint d of an increase of banking capital. You show, likewise, that not twenty months ago, he officially, as Governor of the State, recommended the issuance of post notes, which he and other leaders of his party now condemn as a most injurious measure. In the Advocate of the 22nd of August, you take up the inconsistencies of Senator Walker, and show from his own Utter to Senator Duck, that he most de cidedly disapproved of the removal of the depositee, when he thought "the public voice loudly demanded their restoration." Yes, the public voice was against this measure for a while; and Mr. Walker no doubt thought that the General was now in a hopeless case, and hence his boldness in opposing him. But he was mistaken. The popularity of the iiero was too firm to be prostrated in consequence of any rash or ruinous measure that he might choose to take. He persisted, his party yielded, and Mr. Walker quietly returned to his duty, and obsequiously "followed in the footsteps" gain. You further show, Mr. F.ditor, that a little more than two and a half years ago, the same Mr. Walker, in a speech in the Senate of the U. StateB, denounced the project of a gold and silver currency, in as Btrong terms as ho now denounces a paper currency. He condemned the former then, because he believed, as he eaid, that it was "in direct opposition to the views of the President." Now be it observed, that the Pre ident had at that time completely recovered from the hock produced by the removal of the depnsites, and was as firmly fixed as ever in the zealous utUchmcnt ,, of his party, which constituted a large majority of the nation. Had thu result been otherwise, Mr. Walker would unquestionably have deserted his cause. Finally, Mr. Editor, you have clearly shown the most glaring inconsistency in thu two most prominent and influential leaders of fho democratic party in this Slate. It Is too glaring to bo tolerated by any people who respect themselves. In short, it is an insult to the feelings of all who regard the dictates of common ense. It is saying virtually to the whole peoplo of Mississippi, as follows "It is truo wo have been, and that not long sgo, decidedly in favor of a paper cur rency, ajul arc now entirely against iti yet wc have, notwithstanding thit change, un&viaimgl.t'Jollowed is th footsteps" of tur illustrious leader.

Hence the conclusion was irrosis itible that the Whig ticket was preferable to tho "Democratic van Huron ticket. I ho se quel abounds in ample evidence to attest the verity of the position assumed. We are not !rcod to travel wide in the history of the pre sent party, in search of facts to illustrate the design of these numbers. Thev cluster around us so ihick that one is at a loss which to select fust. It need not be expected that chrotiolo gical accuracy will be observed in the state' rnent o! cases, (or thev shall bo brought to view as they happen to seize the mind. The country well remembers a celebrated letter ol the late Executive, in which the corrupting ten Jencies of the appointment of members in Con gress to important offices, was clearly set forth Whigs approved ol thu memorable document, and Democrats opposed it. Due case in point is sufficient. A Mr. Stevenson, speaker ol the lower house of Congress, retained in his pocket he promise of an appointment at the Lourt ol St. James, nearly six months, while in the dis charge of his official duties. During this time, the chair was basely prostituted to tho vilest purposes, the packing ol' committees, sup pressing the freedom of speech, smothering in vestigation, and upholding the party then in the possession of power. The Whigs denoun ced, in terms of force and eloquence, the sys tern ol corruption inrroduced by the Executive. and predicted the immense accumulation of pa tronage and power that would eventually ceil tre in the single and undivided hand of this high functionary. Where were the "Denvi- cruts" found at that time? Where were these boasting lovers of tho deir people these pa trons of freedom? They were just where they always had been; on the side of powci and iu opposition to the people. They knew no will but the will of their chieftain they knew no cause but the unholy cause in which his whole soul was !ixed. They displayed u z; al worthy of a better vocation, and struggled hard and long to secure triumph to his daring machina tions against the liberties of the country. Eve ry stretch of Executive power was cause of congratulation among the "Democrats;'' eve ry act ol despotism was clamorously sustained by "Democrats," and their chiefest glory was in the dlgn ifed office of cheering on the old Roman he who was born to command, in his bold career of crime and usurpation. Stale Rights Nullifiers, choose ye between W lugs and "Democrats. Choose between the votaries of constitutional liberty, and the cham pions ol despotism in its most hideous shapes and dimensions. Nullifiers, will you contami nate your principles by a foul embrace and in termingling with modern Democrats, tho loco- foco leg-bail faction? What State Rights man would not shrink back with horror at the bare sight of the deformed and revolting offspring of such an unnatural amalgamation? Another scheme of the party in power to subvert our Republican institutions, may bo adverted to, with a view of elucidating more fully tho ob ject of these numbers, to wit: that of proscrip tion for opinion s sake. 1 his infamous system is indebted for a rigid enforcement of its prin ciples to tho present dynasty, the "greatest and the best1' once complained of this system (before he ascended the Presidentid1 chair) la rnented the deleterious consequences of its op eration, and in the, ardor ol his patriotism tin nounced one of the noblest doctrines that could have emaniled from man, to wit: that the monster party should bo annihilated, and that in the appointment to important offices, honesty and capability should alone be consulted. Would to God that this doctrino had been put in practice! Would to God that Jackson had been in office w hat he was out of office. Th country might have been saved from witnessing many a dark spectacle of corruption: and hundreds of pure and virtuous men might have been securely enjoying the woll-carned re wards of an honest industry, had not the re lentless demon of proscription drove Irorn office almost every individual who di tic red in politi cal opinion from the monarch ol tho land. Hut no sooner had tho famed letter writer reached tho highest office within the gift of the people, than a manifest, and it seems deliberate di rejec tion of priuciplc,as lu id down in his memorable epistles, displayed itself. Tho sternest patri otism, the most virgin purity ol character, and spotless virtue, afforded no shield against the displeasure of tin ambitious Executive. Durst any officer of the Government express an opin ion in opposition io in ivimmisiruuon oi An drew Jackson? No. No sooner was the avow al made thun tho officer's doom was sealed, the thunders of Executive vengeance hurled him from olliee, and some venal suppliant tool ele vated on his downlall. So searching und wide spread has boon this system of proscription, that few lionost men can bo numbered among its officers, and the heart of patriotism sickuus at beholding the profligate, degenerate, cor- rupt, una wicneu poiiiicui nanisms inui uiacx- en und disgrace every office of tho fedoral Government, from the highest to the lowest. Would uuv one beliova t hut "Democrats," the lovers ol the dear people, could huvo sanctioned a practice of such mi odious und anti-republi can tendency ? THEY DID. I hey not only sustained the system, but openly catered to the Jen raved uppolite of their chieftuin, in hunting out objects upon which the vengeance of the Execulivo might bo wreaked even to gluttony. They signulued their devotion to the euuiw of, it master by applauding every act of pro .cription infiicmi bV his infallible majesty however base or despicable in its character, branding the independent oltioflr wuo nappoueu to dtller Irorn the Administration in poimcui opinion, with infamy, un i acceding to tho suc cessor a perfect dog roe of cajficity and integri ty, though he might rival in baseness, igno rance and infamy, the vilest and most loath some creature that could bo picked up from the drees of sot. otl. In these times tliut meu men's souls, wlfro were found the Whigs? They wore found where they had struggled before, entreached behind the constitution und laws, fighting for that freedom of thought and independence of notion guaranteed to every man by tho principles of all free governments. The halls oi our national councils were eloquent with tho most powerful appeals th ever drop pod from tho lips of man, in behalf of a bleed ing constitution, broken laws, insulted virtue, and corrupted morals. '1 hi people were bo sous it with i ho most stirntr' a'lnioniiions to nerve their hearts und strike one mighty blow for the redemption of their liberties, ero it was too late. Truth, in tho lulness ot us eloquent outpourings, diffused its empire far and wide. the .-jhu and West revore Us potency, unit tho South bo'ws before its shrine. Shall the Nullifiers attempt to subvert its dominion? Shall they fold up tho little flag that has glit tered in the front of their ranks, cancel all their deeds of patriotism, blot from memory the remembrance of their arduous struggles and glorious achievements in the cause of their Country, and rush headiong into the arms ol the Van Huron party, the author of tho meas ures they opposed, tranquilly reposing in their pros'itute embraces, and vindicating all their acts, professions and principles, with as much lury and loud-mouthed zeal ns is usually dis played by a rabiij loco-loco Democratic hero, ranting and raving like a mad-dog, sustaining every deed othe party in power? God forbid it! A few may straggle off to the way-side but the mass of the Nullifiers is made of too stern a stuff :o be carried away and tossed to and fro, like .ho thistle, by every breeze and oscillation of tho air. They are animate J by a spirit and chivalric devotion to principle that scorns such an unholy amalgamation as that of Nullifiers witt van Huron Democrats, Famil iarity with crime softens its rcpulsiveness, and from too long communion wi'h it we can view with indifference, yea, approbation, offences that once excited iu our bosoms tho utmost horror und disgust. Let Nullifiers once iden tify themselves with Van Huron Democracy, lot them once strike dow i tho little flag that floated so gallantly at their mast-head, and rally under the battlements of the present dy nasty, and crime and usurpation at once be come their daily companions; their boasted patriotism and dauntless chivalry in tho cause of liberty, degenerates into disgusting party servility, and an unmanly, base, contemptible and slavish obsequiousness, in fine, they be come the loud-mouthed champions of a cause that once disgusted them, and of men and mea sures that erewhile summoned from their bo soms tho fiercest indignation, and concentred the most powerful energies of their minds in one united burst of the most bitter, unsparing, and scathing denunciation. They are no lon ger Nullifiers; but tho despicable votaries of "the great principles of constitutional liberty supported by Van Huren Democracy," and the servile apologists of all its former act3 and do ings, abuses, and assumptions of power. Yea, some of the infatuated amalgamationists un- blushingly contend that Van Huren Democracy was never in favor ot the 1 roclamation and Force Bill. There is a certain point in the career of human depravity which when reach ed by man changes his whole nature, tie is no longer the noble being he once was, but is sunk below the sphere in which shame can mantle his cheek, or truth and virtue exert its mild and holy influence upon him, and, in fact, is as insensible to all the ennobling feelings of a man as a rock. 1 here is a similar point in the political world, a ne plus ultra, beyond which no politician can go without such a de generacy of spirit, as, at once, strikes him off tho catalogue ol high-minded, honorable, and honest statesmen. Plunged thus deep in ini quily, tho patriotism, integrity, and lore of con sistency that once roused his blood to action, no longer impress his cold sluggish bosom, and nothing but the maniac cries of "Federalism, Hank, Tu riff, and Aristocracy," are sent forth, as the poor deluded creature glides on, in ima gined security, to the fatal straits where fright ful ruin glares upon him from either side. "Here Scy'da a Hcene of horror forms. There Charbdis fillii tho deep with Etorme." That no Nullifier will extinguish the fame of his former acts, or the bright prospects thick ening upon the future, is the sincere hope ot A NULLIFIER. From the Vickiburg Whig. THE SENATORIAL CANVASS. Wo did hope that the canvass between Mr. Prentiss and R. J. Walker, for a seat in the United States Senate would bo conducted fairly, openly und honorably; that the question would be permitted to rest t-iiher upon tho merits vdho candidates or upon the broad ground ol nation al politics. In either case wo should bo per fectly satisfied, we should have no fears of ris king tho election upon either, for wo havo in tho merits of Mr. Prentiss, we need scarcely say, tho most unbounded confidence, and in the jus tice und purity of our cause, our confidence is not less abiding. With such feelings, then, we hoped to see the canvass conducted in a manly i rid liberal manner, we wished to see no black balling of character, and no ussassinalion of reputation. -Wo had no fears that the charac ter of Me. Prentiss couldsulfer by such a course, fur from it, but we wished to avoid it from a strong and natural repugnance to conducting a cunvas3 in such a manner. But however strougour objections to such a canvass, it scorns that Me. Prentiss's fronds are to bo driven to it nolens volens, and if come it must, wo as one of them shall tiul shrink from it. Those ro marks huve boon elicited by reading in thu Natchez Free Tiader of tho 20th, uu article on ihosubjecfof tho Senatorial election in which tho followingcontcmptible parugraph appears. The editors closing u comparison of Mr. Prentiss and, Mr. Wulker, conclude thus: "It is a matter of congratulation that tho pri vate life of the Hon. Hubert J. Walker is such, lnl Ministers of the Gospel, those of pure mor- uls and irreproachable lives, can give him theii suffrages with a clear conscience. This they could not do to a cummer and a man ol licon tiouslifu; this they could not do to a profane person or ono addicted to thu invasion ol those sacred barriers which marriage rears around the domestic altar which revelation sanctions, and which heaven approves." Now we havo no disposition to drag ono sol itary act. of Mr. Walker s private lilo belore tho public, nor shall wo do it unless driven to it, but if we are 'compelled to such a course, we may shim how far Mr. Walker is entitled to tho sulf rages of "Ministers of tho Gospel" Witmaij show what claim he has upon honest men lor their support wo may show what claim he himself has to the title of au honest mm, an ! if in the course of such an expose he should find himself placed in an unenviable po sition, ho has only to thank his very kind friends the editors of that reraciou i journal the I' roe Tiader. As to the insinuations against Mr. Prentiss, we fling them into the teeth of tin rree Irader men as Join mouthed standex. They know them to bo such. Every matiTn .iississippi knows them to bo such. 1 ho ed itors insnutote that Mr. t'rentiss has invauou those surfrcd barriers, which marriage rears around the domestic altar, which revelation sanctions and which Heaven approves.' When the editors penned that insinuation, they gave utterance to a wilful, deliberate and mali- "bus falsehood. Thea knew as well as we do, that it was basely and outrageously false. I'hev tKothat there was nothing in ths whole course of Mr. Prentiss' life, which could atfijrd the slightest pretext for this charge, and yet knowing its utter falsity, in tho vain hope of in- iurino-a political onponent, they gave circula tion to what every man in Mississippi knows to bo false. Vain will be the attacks ol such mis erable slanderers. Mt. I'rentiss is fur, far above the reach of their puny arms, and the only emotions their libels can excite in his bo som, will be ineffable contempt and scorn. We envy not tho editors of tho Free Trader in thus uttering a base slander against one of the brightest jewels of our state, and they will find that in this case at least they have overshot the mark. The shaft intended lor Mr. rrentiss will rebound upon tho archer. Such attacks will do Mr. Prentiss no harm, they can but ex cite the detestation of every honorable man of whatever party ho may be. We shall !ake our leave of tho Free Trader, with the single remark that if they are disposed to nuke the . ... I A issue upon tho private characters oi Messrs. Prentiss and Walker, wc are ready. Give us but a blast of your bugle, and then "damned be lie who first cries hold! enough." From the Natchex Courier. S. S. PRENTISS At the repeated instance of many friends of this gentleman, wo publish the annexed para graph from tho Weekly Free Trader. It is the conclusion of an article on the comparative merits of Mr. Walker and Mr. Prentiss. frr "It is a matter of congratulation that the private life of the Hon. Robert J. Walker is such, that Ministers of the Uospel, those ot pure morals and irreproachable lives, can give him their suffrages with a clear conscience. This they could not do toa gambler and a man of li centious life; this th' y could not do to a pro fane parson or one addicted to the invasion ol those sacred barriers which marriage rears around the domestic altar which revelation sanctions, and which Heaven approves. -CO On this base insinuation, we have already made those remarks, which our sense of duty prompted wo have no more to say but we will give our readers the tollowing commvnts from the VicksburgSentinel--the leading lo co-foco paper of the State. "Wo notice an article in the r ree Trader in relation to United States Senator in which some low, coarse allusions are made to Mr. Prentiss in a strain of hypocritical whining un worthy the highly correct course heretofore pursued by that paper. That article is a plague spot on the fair fame of tho Free Trader. Such articles tend to degrauo tne character ana los sen its moral influence and are the surest way of defeating the purpose for which they arc in tended. VVe respect Me. Prentiss very much as a man for his high-mindedness, his lofty moral virtues, we feel proud of him as a Afississippi an for his splendid intellect, but we shall use every honorable means of defeating his election as Senator, and unless those opposed to him slander him into tlu office we shall certainly succeed." From the Vicktlnirg Whig. The True Whig Spirit. The following article from the Southern Sun breathes tho true spirit. Let every whig gird on his armor for the contest, prepared to do or die. Let other states do ns they may let us show to tho world that ilississippi is not only free, but independent, that though all the world so asainstus wo aro still firm in the cause which we sincerely believe to bo tho causo of the country. "Tho locofocos think that the result of the Tennessee election will have a magical effect in advancing locolbcoism in Mississippi, Why should it? Uurs is a free and independent State we look in no direction for precedents by which to shape our own political cou rse we do not pin our faith to tho sleeve of Ten nessee, or any other State. The only efTect that our defeat in Tennessee should have, is to stimulate our free citizens to renewed oxertinn to save Mississippi from the discredit which has fallen upon her sister State. Let every whig in this Stale arouso himself, und in No vember next, we shall show to tho world that Tennessee cannot be a leader for Missis- ippi." j Tho following from tho sam? paper should! bo tho watchword of tvery whig in the state "Let tho whigs of Mississippi cnmn to tho res cue.

The health of this great locofoco orator having improved very much of late, we loam that it is his intention lo lake tho stump and traverse the stale in defence of his hard money notions. vvoicarn aisotnat no sun has the "original letter" which Gen. Jackson gave him when he was a candidate for the Senate, and that ho has engaged a gentleman to travol with himwho is familiar with the old Nero's hand writing so i hat if the authenticity of the lettoris doubt' ed, he may have tho proof always at hand. As aomoof our readers may not understand thisullusion to tho "original letter," wo will explain. Wheir Mr. Walker was first a can didate for the Senate, knowing his utter incom petency to fill tho office to which lie aspired and knowing too that the people of tho State vvero fully aware of the paucity of his intelloct and that unless some adventitious aid could bj obtained that ho would be beaten, he obtained by what means wo know not, a letter from' Gon. Jackson, in which the old Hero in the good ness of his heart, was pleased to speak in very fluttering terms of Robert J. Walker- declared his admiration for his talonts, his con. iiucnco in his principles and concludeJ of course, by hoping that he might bo elected to thebonaio ot tho United states. IIavin rc. coived this letter, Mr. Walker determined to make tho best use ol it, and forthwith he com. inencod travelling through the stato uddressing the people wherever und whenever ho could get a dozen ussembled together. Knowing that his own claims wore not held in hah runpt and fearing that the authenticity of the letter might be doubted, ho engaged a gentleman known to havo been familiar with the old Gen- eral, to travel wi'.h him in order that when tho genuineness ol the letter was called in question he might have tho proof at hand. Thus pre pared with Gen. Jackson's endorsement, he tra versed the state, made speeches and road his letter, calling upon his witness upon every oc casion to vouch for tho genuineness of the let ter, which of course he did. Thus did a candi date lor tho United States Senate, present him self before the peoplo of Mississippi, not upon any uvowed principles, but solely upon Uio ori ginal letter from Gon. Jackson, which he dis played upon all occasions us a cringing slave displays his pass from his master. Thus did Robert J. Wulker electioneer for a seat in the highest deliberative body in tho world, and thus we learn it is his intention to canvass again. Comment is unnecessary. Vicksburg Whig. The following wo copy from the Nativo American of yesterday, and readily recom mend its perusal to every acclimated person leaving the city. It is the advice of an able and experienced physician, who, in this timely ad vice has no other object in view but a wish to relieve the sufferings and prolong the lives of his fellow beings. N. 0. Bulletin. YELLOW FEVER, TREATMENT, &c. Wc have ventured heretofore lo advise stran gers who had remained in New Orleans until this late period, not to leave it now. Wo con ceivo we cannot do a greater favor to sulfering humanity, than by prescribing a simple and efficacious mode of treatment by which, in our hands, yellow fever has been disarmed of al most all its terrors, and rendorod alinjst as harmless us a simple cold. We would advise evory unucclinntej person, who in despite of our opinions will loavo the city, to take with him a bottle (commonly cal led a quart bottle) containing three drachms of Carbonate of Ammonia, and one pint and a half of water; also twenty-four pills, each contain ing two grains and a half of calomel, and four grains of Blue Mass. Tho very instaut sensations of disease are felt, but particularly pain in the head and back, do not stop to enquire whether it is yellow fever or not get into a warm bath and remain there twenty minutes, or until profuse perspiration is induced -if the elements of fever be present, this will develope them at once and prevent the disease from insiduously overwhelming vital parts by its centripetal action. It is theinsid lousnessof tho assault of yellow fever, which too often constitutes i:s real danger. From the moment of coming out of tho bath, the skin must never bo permitted to get dry, to the end of the disease. Should it ever do so, warm sage tea, or al most any other herb repetitions of the warm bath which I havo frequently repeated four or five times during tho twer.ty-four hours, or, warm foot baths under the bed-clothes that is without exposure of tho limbs. A table-spoonful of the mixture of Carbonate of Ammonia and water to bo given every three hours, which will act powerfully in keeping up the perspiration, and a pill, morning, noon, and night, which will act gently on tho liver tha secretion from which i always suspended by an attack of yellow fever. If vomiting occur, a large mustard plaster over the region of the stomach. These directions comprise a simple and con venient course of treatment, on which tho sub scriber would stake his ontiro past medical re putation, bo it much or little. But remember, tho skin must never be per mitted to get dry throughout the whole disease, otherwise the overthrow of tho vital parts will take placo bo rapidly, and to such an extent, that the probability is that healthy perspiration cannot afterwards bo established. The above course is to be kept up for throo days; on the fourth, a dose of castor oil or salts and senna and manna, and if the febrile symp toms continue after its effects u re over, resume tho former mode of treatment for twenty-four or thirty hours longer. During tho whole diseaso, noinmg uui meal gruel, well boiled, for diet-a small leucup full evory two or three hours regularly. This advice is given for those who leave the city, but it will not bo found entirely inapplica ble here, although, of cou rse, under the inspec lionof an intelligent physician.
