Anticipated Extracts from tlie Richmond Enquirer
in November, 1810.
Tuesday, Nov. 3d.)
"The Presidential Election took place throughout
Virginia yesterday. Now that no injury can result
from the candor, we " do not hesitate" to Hay that
the contest will he close and the result doubtful.
H unt friends all turned out to a man and if the
Whigs showed their old apathy of 1S;30. wn con

is known, and we unhesitatingly say. that if the
Whig changes are as numerous as reported, and if
the Whigs have turned out their whole strength,
it is a possible thing the Wh'gs may have carried
the State. , Noa Verrons . Meanwhile wa will not
"despair of the Republic," and there is "no know
intf who is Governor until after the election."
Richmond gave a heavy majority for the "Log
Cabin" Candidate, near 700."
from the Enquirer of Friday, Nov. 6th, 19-10.
"The returns are pouring in, and as we antici
pated, Eastern Virginia has probably polled a con
siderable majority fur (Jen. Harrison. Tho Valley

.Candidate and may neutralize the vote of the East.

so, time will refute them, and if we lose Virginia
now. we are sure to "right the ship of State" and

partially heard from, and do not turn out as well as
we had expected. N. West Virginia, too, showsa
heavy Whig gain upon 1836. We speak in "frank

nothing. We fear the State is lost to iVIr. V. B
Two days will determine, but we confess our hopes
are not sanguine."
From the Richmond Enquirer of .Vol-. 14, 19-10.
"All is lost except honor." The whole State is
heard from except Lee and Logan. The Whig
Electoral ticket is elected by a majority of from
five to eight thousand ! We have been for some
time prepared for this result. But we "will not
despair of the Republic." The people have been
swept away by Whig orators, and deluded by Whig
lies. It must be confessed in frankness, that thu
Whigs have had plausible grounds to proceed upon
in their agitations of the people. The Army bill
was injudicious and unfortunate, to say the least of
it. The course ot me president in L.ieui. liooo s
case, lost him thousands, and, we say it in candor,
was indefensible. The Sub-Treasury, giving " tho
better currency to the office-holders, the baser to
the people," was unfortunate, and Col. Bunion's
selling the gold which he received for his per diem,
and Mr. Smith, of Culpeper, that which he received
on Ins contracts, for a premium in Bank notes, after
their long declamation aguinst all Banks, inflicted
serious injury on the Great Democratic Republican
States Right party. We " apeak more in surrow
than in anger." We shall in a few days explain
to our distant friends, at more length, the causes of
our defeat in Virginia. Let us do the Whigs tho
justice to say that they bear their success with ma
deration. From the Richmond Enquirer of Dec. 3, 19 10.

"For a complete refutation of all the Whig Mse
hoods concerning the alleged "extravagance of die
f resident s nouse we reler the reader to toe
speech on our Bret page of Mr. Lincoln, a Wnig
member of Congress from Massachusetts." Demo
crat. Had the Democrat published the speech of .Mr.
Ogle, to which Mr. Lincoln's speech is a reply we
would have let it pass unnoticed; but inasmuch as
the Democrat has attempted to shield Van Bureu
from alleged extravagance ic. by publishing the
remarks of Mr. Lincoln, we deem it necessary ihe
following certificates from as equally well informed
and honorable gentlemen as Mr. Lincoln himself,
one of whom is Chairman of the Committee on the
the Expenditures on Public Buildings, and another
a member of suid committee !
Mit. (Dole's Speech The National Intelli
gencer contains the following. verification of the
extacts Irom 1'uulic JJocuuionrs made uy Air.
Ogle and inserted in his speech:
The undersigned, Whig members of Congress,
have had their attention called to a publication in
tho "Globo"on the 10th July, 1810, under the-
caption of "Messrs Lincoln and Ugle, Irom
which the following extract is taken:
"He (Mr. Lincoln) was no friend of Mr. Van
Burun, but he would do him the justice to say if
there was any thing wrong in relation to the lor
uiluro of ihe White House, llie President wus not
to blame for it. On the the contrary, ho (.Mr. u
knew his great delicacy on the subject, and would
assure the gentlemen, that whenever the commit
tee had consulted the President in relation to any
additional furniture, he had invariably expressed
his reluctance, to have any thing expended lor
ih at object. Hi) ( .Mr. L) would, say Irom his own
knowledge, that not a single article of furniture
supplied during the lut three years had been sup
plied at the request of the President. . 1 he com
mittee alone were answera'de, and they assume
tlio responsibility .
The uii'l.'rig'i''.l '1 not undertake to s iy wheth
er Mr. Liiiu'oln used life langiiag imputed to liim
by tlie "Globo" or not; ' but as he has permitted
its publication to remain ton days without contra,
diction, we presumo that he now adopts the lan
guage ascribed to him, if he did not originally
utter it. For the purpose therefore, of placing
the matterr truly before the country, and to cor
rect the gross misrepresentation of facts contain
ed in the above extract, that they have caiefully
examined the vouchers which have been duly au
d ied and selllcd by the Treasury Department,
for the purchase of furniture for the President's
House since ihe 4th of March, 1837, and that
they have compared the said vouchers with the
statemts of the same in the published speech of
Mr. Ogle, and find the said vouch truly set forth
in the said speech.
And they further certify that it appears from the
said vouchers that more than eighteen thousand
dollars were expended in furniture for the Presi
dent's House between the 4ih of March, 1837,
and the 5ih day of December, 1837, the day on
which the committee on Public Buildings and
Grounds was appointed, and of which Mr. Lin
coln was chairman, the former Committee on
Public Buildings and Grounds having ceased to
exist on the 3d of March, 1837.
The undersigned further certify that it appeals
from the said vouchers that the said money was
expended by tha agents of the President, viz. his
sou, Abraham Van Buren, T. L. Smith and oth
ers, ou warrants drawn by order of the President
of the United Slates himself.
And ihe undersigned would further state that
ih 2 C j niiiittiie on Public Buildings and Grounds
have no control, direction or jurisdiction whatever
in the selection of purchase of furniture which
the President may sec proper to procure by himself
or his agents, when appropriations are njudc for
lhat object by law.
J. C. CLARK, N. York,
Washington, July 20, 1710.
As Chairman of the Committee on the expen
ditures on Public Buildings, it comes my duty lo
examine the expenditures on the Piesident's
House. I havo had the vouchers before the com
mittee, and, having examined the subject fully at
the request ol ilr. Ugle, 1 slate that tho lacts pub
lished in his speech are correctly given. 1 con

President alone, without any one to intcfere or

C. C. Cadt, E-q.
Dear Sir In the last number of the Demo
crat a communication was pointed out to me, and I
was at the same time informed that my own pic
ture was there presented to the public. I am glad
lo believe that neither I nor my friends could have
recognised the villanous caricature, had not the
painter followed the example of a brother artist,
who after having drawn the picture of a horse,
fearing it might be mistaken for an ass, wrotu un
derneath, "This is a horse." So these gentlemen,
(lor it was done in caucus) have chosen to point at
me so directly, that 1 am fureed in my uwn defence
to take up arms. I might well forbear entering the
li-ts wit!) such competitors upon the principle that
he who wrestles with a dung heap must expect to
be deliled ; but as the writers have attributed to me
motives for my actions which would, if true, efiec.
in some degree the character of a stranger, or in
deed of any other man who had not sunk to tbo de
railed level on which they stand, I have felt it
incumbent upun me to reply, and as tho best defence
which I could make, to show in their true colors the
real characters of my assailants. They have in
the first place, thought proper to attribute to me
communications of which 1 was not the author,
and acting upon their own suppositions have held
me up in no very enviable light before the commu
nity. Since they have thought proper to thrust this
honor upon me, and have proceeded to pour upun
my devoted head the vials of their concentrated
wrath, I shall not shrink from any particle of res
ponsibility hitherto incurred or hereafter to bo iu
cuiri'd by Simon Sly ; and unless I am more mista
ken t!r.m 1 now suppose myself to be, cro this sheet
i tilled up I will cause them to rue the day " they
waked up the wrong passenger." In future, gen
tlemen, we shall know each oilier. You will know
who Sly is, and 1 assure you I am perfectly aware
of Giinblet's identity. The writer falsely asserts
that I took great interest iu the towuship eleclion,
and used every means in my power to defeat the
eleclion of Tisiol, thu former constable, on account
of an insult given to mo by that gentleman. I sup
pose this information was of course furnished by
the ex-constable. Whoever was the author, I here
jive it tho lis direct. If I was ever insulted by thut
nun, 1 was ignorant of his intention, nor do lever
remember having been treated by bin even disre
spectfully in any way. I am still more certain thut
he who gave the insult would have had reason to re
member it much more distinct than he does at
present. I am not in the habit of being insulted
iMlhoul at least attempting a retaliation a little
ditlerent from the mean and petty revenge they have
attributed to me. Those who are acquainted with
me, I believe, will tusiain mo iii this assertion. In
conducting my defence, gentlemen, you have ren
dered it necessary for me to use some liard names.
Some which an honorable man would find dilheult
of digestion ; but remember, gentlemen, yuu are
the aggressors. I hold each man concerned in gel
ting up that publication just as responsible as he
who wrote it, and shall deal with them as suits my
humor. Careless as to where my blows shall' fall
or how deeply they may wound, and fearless of the
consequences, whatever l hoy may be. Suuh con
tcmptiblo game can aft'ord but "light amusement in
the chac; h'it at u 11 event- we'll "play out the piay.
J aha!) luliow their example in oi.a if.iiVg, na'uiuly,
in pointing llicm out as distinctly ns they did me:
1 The one, Justice of the Poace in Glasgow, (alia;
Justice Shallow,) the other tho ex-constable of tlie
township, otherwise called Pistol. Upon the first
appearance of Simon Sly, in which Pistol was re
presented as taking part in a dialogue, the good
people hereabout either saw, or pretended thny saw,
a marked resemblance between the aforesaid Pistol
and a certain constublo. He, however, scorned the
idea. Said he was the last man in the world to
take it on himself, and even ventured to be very
much diverted at the expense of somebody else, but
from the tenor of Gimblet'scoin.n'inication it would
seem he had concluded to "acknowledge the corn."
Very well, sir. I thank you for this much. After
a man admits a fact ho has no reason to complain
of other folks for talking about it. I hope in fu
ture he will threaten Ihe lives of no more old ladies.
Fearing least this allusion may not be understood,
I must here treat you to a short cpisod i. I cannot
answer for the truth of the statement, I only give
it as it was given to me. Sometime during Ihe
early part of this rummer, this same Pistol (it. is
said) failed to adhere so strictly to the seventh com
mandment, as he might have done, by reason of
which, sundry old ladies immediately opened upon
tho trail of this persecuted public olfieer. Fearinjr
least his cpniless reputation might be tarnished ami
probably looking even a'l far abend as the day of
election, when he truly thought all his respectabi
lity would be wanting (o help him along, he uctu-j
ally set himself to work to stop iho old women from
talking, probably the moil difficult task ever under
taken, except by Joshua, who stopped the un. The
means ho took to effect his purpose were extremely
laughable. It is not my design to misrupreseiiL the
gentleman. Report, however, says he armed him
self w ith an old fashionoi hanger, about five feo'
long, stuck a large horseman's pistol in each of his
breeches pockets, squeezed himself into an old lon'
tailed regimental blu", with bullet buttons, nnd put
on a three cornered cocked hat, which was said
(with how much truth I cannot say) to have been
worn by Lord Cornu allis at the surrender of York.
Thus equipped, it was his regular habit every even
ing about twilight, to m Hint n mule nnl sal iy forth,
calling on oil the old ladies, and threatening signal
and spedy vengeance. ! never had the pleasure
of witnessing the exhibition, but many who av it
told me they were forcibly reminded of Sancho Pan
.a and Dapple, habited in the warlike gear of Don
Quixutte and llozeminle.
The gentlemen think, per'rup--, they ore telling
mo a piece of news, when they inform me that the
expression of my political opinions has operated
against my pecuniary interests. Theyare mistaken.
The means they have employed to injure my oro
fessional business were known to -in ; Ion:; ago. I
am glad, however, they have made an acknowledg
ment of the fact. I had rather too much self-res
pect to bring the charge against them ; b it since
they have thought lit thus oublicly to to it, and
rather to buast of their abiiitv to it.: li-.j uij, I shall
tike the liberty of expressing my opini irw T::.urr...:
ately, on the subject. Ii seems I have been guilty
of inexcusable stupidiiv in tailing to Usbum my
opinions to the mould of those wholesale dispel
ers of professional favors. I havo rrosslv erred.
tool tbat I was ! in failing to propitiate the wrath
of two such awful dignitaries, compared lo whose
displeasure "the oppressors wrong, and proud man's
contumely," would be no. more thm the bite of a
musquitto, when weighed against the most disas
trous calamities " that flesh is heir to." Alas
have taken a false step, and il is now too late to
mend the mistake. Well, gentleineu, if you have
positively decided that I am to starve, I will en-
ileavor to meet my fate with manlv fortitude, and
"die with harness on my back" a dreadful alter
na'ive truly submission or starvation.
Had I been told that my ultimate success or fail
lire in my profession depended on t lie smiles or
frowns of the Justice and Constable of Chariton
township, 1 would n it have suitered a thou 'ht so
humiliating to enter mv breast ; but it seems
would l.ave been mistaken. Tho Lord help me,
and ns a last resort, 1 must appeal to tho Tipp"-a
noeClub ol tayette. 1 here say, and 1 say it re
ligiously and solemly, that if the alternative of
herding with such men on terms uf friendship urn
equality, or ueniu in its most liuleous siiape were
presented to me, I would intini'ely prefer the latter.
Aware of their mean attempt to injure me, and ig
norant of tbe motives thut actuute the conduct o'
gentlemen, they have attributed to me such motives
as thry profess themselves to be governed by. Ex
cuse me, if you please ; wu have no motives or feel
ings iu common. You have meanly attempted, for
one reason, and one only, to wit, because I nave
had the impudence to disagree with you in politi
cal opinions, to injure me secretly. If necessary 1
can prove the fact, though I mean not to condescend
lo do it, but hold myself accountable for the charge.
To the writer of that article I will say one word.
He has chneen to use the word brothel, and that too
in connection with inc. I would beg of him in
mercy to himself never ugain to use that word.
Were 1 malicious, I could a tule unfold, at which
the video ot every honest man would cry out s iam?,
but I shall forbear now and I hope forever. In
inclusion, for the biolit of all whom it may
concern, I here say that the men who would resort
to such pitiful, cowurdly, contemptible, and rogue-
like means to injure a man whose only oflenco was
a diii'erence of political opinions, would, under other
circumstances, rob a hen roost, or commit any
other petty larceny. Should any thing which I
have said hero, gentlemen, sit unpleasanlly upon
your stomachs, I beg you will tako a more manly
revenge than yon huvo hitherto done. I would even
prefer encountering you both, with swords, pistols,
bullet buttons, and three cornered cocked hats. I
presume you will hardly excuse yourselves by al
leging that the author is incognito. He w.ts until
you brought him out- For fear, however, that you
might be misled, smTer me lo inform you, that by

All parties admit and know that the t. S. Kjnk

every impartial mind, th it the amount of compen

ou tho service they render the parly in election-

I think we may saf-dy calculate that the su'j

is stolen and carried to Texas and Europe.
Fellow-Citizens, ull this expense eould be saved

Under this title the undersigned propose to pub

souri, a Weekly Journal, to be devotee", principally
to I'oHtical, Agricultural, Commercial, and cfn
iic information, but to embody (he usual variety
which is found in a Family .Nkwspai'CK.
In Politics, the paper will bo thoroughly Whig.
The Editcr in no repect doubts the election .f

doubts that the course of his administration will be
such as to drserve Ihe support of the Hepoblicnn
pnrty, of which he is a member. If o, it shall

'"nhghlencd parly in reference to measures of

and he virtues of the A .
of whom ,t may r fleet . pr,s. , A
.WW(.r.onan other principle. , n0Qwr
and a mockery.
The untirine zeal with which the Rcmi.,,;,.
party in this !iole, carried on the war iii our lt
elections together with the villany, industry, and
the celerity with whHi they carried into execution
their plans, will remain as on alarming nnd tin en
during monument of Democratic f nterprisp! Like
the fai led Dragon, which is said t;cver to close hi
lidiesseye, the stirring nnd pilfering spirit of De
mocracy, slumbers (if at all) with unclosed eyes!
The base, contemptible, and fnlse-hearted flattery,
with which these political hypocrites attempt to in
sinuate thomselves into favor; and the skill with
which these panderers and parasite" these syco
phants and demagogues of Democracy, manogn tu
get upon the blind side of humnn nature, and lu
tako on advantage of its weakness nnd passions,
must all be laid naked before the gaze of an honest,
an unsuspecting, but heretofore deluded people. In
one word, the lime has again n,.proached, when wo
must all enter upon a great political contest. Like
that through which we have just passed in our
State, it will be a contest, nf principle against fmrcr
a contest of the people against the njTtce-holdtrs. We
are none of those who indulge in gloomy anticipa
tion. We do nut despair uf the Republic. Our
trust is strong, that the gallant ship, in which alt
our hopes are embarked, will yet outride the storm,
saved ulike from the breakers and billows of dis
union, nnd the greedy whirlpool the all engulph
ing mnlestrootns of executive power that un
broken, if not unharmed, she may pursue her pros
perous voynge fur down li e ttrrt.in of time; an
that the bunner of our country, which now waves
over us so proudly, will still float in triumph borne
on the winds of heaven, fanned by the breath of
fame, every stripe bright and unsullied, every etar
fixed in its sphere, age after each of us shall have
ceased to gaze on its mnjestic folds forever.
We shall ci inmcnce and ronlinue the good fight,
till error, sick with contradiction, and crazed with
a superabundance of inconsistency, shall be seen
flying to falsehood as a remedy, and expiring from
the venom of its own longs. We will continue the
warfare, till the night of superslilion shall pass
away '.he purple morn of reason shall dawn tho
tints of truth appear and the gloomy mists fade in
the distance, and sink below the horizon to rise no
morel Till the hallowed name of Liberty, more
irtgruiit than the Spring gales of Arabia, more
buliuv than (iiltad's air, thrills the bosom when
despair once revelled, and whispers, "good tiilmc'
for a. I manl.iiil." lu a w ord, we trust, wa snail
not re. ax our ctiorts, tnl trophies of victory, in
smiles and peace, deck the brows of'thofe who once
were saddened with doubt and uncertainly, and
sunk with political sorrows, to the depths of a
Tory's hell.
To all those who value the liberty wo yet enjoy
the privileges bequeathed lo ns by our heroic
sires, let tl.ein immediately step forward and lend
their aid to the "IIerai.u."
O-If encouragedaccording to the expectation of
