Jack. I thank you my friend ; I am sensible of
your regard, and now you can render me an impor

birds with one stone.—What think ye Gentlemen!
Speak freely.
Bev. Good, good, my worthy General:
mously agri" to your proposition ; but your plans,
sir, your plans of operation, and mode of attack—
Jack. Gentlemen, in this kind of warfare I am a
mere novice ; entirely out of my element. My
sword is my strong and sure weapon : but in the
present case I can make no use of it. Violent means
will not answer my purpose ; if it did, I could send
the rascals to the d-1 in the twinkling of an eye,

Jack. Well then, Mr. Beverly, to you will I as
sign the chief command of the expedition. Kremer
will serve you as aid-de-camp ; Green and Coleman
will publish your proclamations, and write them too
if necessary ; for you know I can only write on the
subject of blood and daughter , I shall command the

Ben. 1 wait your orders sir.
Jack. It has been the custom among civilized na
tions previous to any hostile movement, to publish
a manifesto. In accordance then with this general
rule of nations, I now furnish you with the outlines
[handing him a paper ] which you will please to
put in proper form.
Bev. Shall I read the orders to your friends pre
sent ? _
Jack. Let not thy left hand know what thy right
hand doeth.
Bev. But General there are exceptions to this
rigid rule : all present are your friends.
Jack. As you please then, sir, as you please. I
have confidence in the integrity of my friends.
Bev. [Reads alvud the following order . J Or

slating in substance that a corrupt bargain and sale
of the good people's suffrages have been consuminat

crime will, if necessary, be proved by a highly re
spectable member of congress ; besides I believe it
to be so, and who will dare to impeach my veracity
or motives? (Signed) A-r^TT! 1 '

Bev. My worthy General, I am ready at all
times to risk my hie in defence ot your rights ; but
my reputation—my reputation, sir, is at stake should
we fail in proof. .
Jack, liest easy on that head ; Buchanan is an ,
honnrable man, and will not fail to substantiate
enough to satisfy the people that the Administration
is corrupt; besides sir, any deficiencies shall be
made up by inuendoes. McDuflie will command a
powerful auxiliary force in the south. You know,
sir. that he is well qualified to carry on such a war

M'Duff. My worthy General, our plans are an

his friends in Keut'-^ky—he blows up Old Hickory

Bev. What will your declamation and speechj
fying amount to, unaided by proof? Depend upon it
sir, the people are not to be caught by chaff. Clay
retains the confidence of the People ; and they will
protect him.
Enter Eaton and Randolph.
Eaton. Our prospects are gloomy, yet onestring
remains which may be touched with effect. Let
Jackson come out a tho.ough going tariff man : the
bait will take, and zee shall understand him: Penn
syivania must be secured.
M'Dvff. A good idea sir : but should he come
out for full protection to the wool growers and man
ufacturers, the south will abandon him. At present !
we do not suspect him ofbeing in favor of that inte
res t. In 1024 he secured Pennsylvania by voting a
prohibitory duty on foreign iron ; but he opposed
other items of the bill, or to say the least, his votes
were equivocal. He makes no speeches : there be

THE IRISHMAN'S GAMECOCK.
A Gentlemam residing in the vicinity of N. York,
was desirous of raising some game cocks, and ac
cordingly despatched his Irish servant to the city to
pur chase a quantify of eggs.
The Irishman returned highly pleased with the
success of his mission, and placed the eegs under a
lwn to hatch. He watched the process ot incubation
with great impatience, and when the future prize
fighters emerged from their oval prisons, he seized
upon one and hastened with joy to exhibit it to his
master.
*• Master, Master,
here !"
The Gentleman cast his eyes upon the bird, and
discovered it to be a thick ! Astonishment and
indignation prevented him from replying, and Pat
continued.
"Th eparafy orchards of ould Ireland never seed
the like of this—look at his hill—look at his fut ,
(turning up the webbed toes of the biped) what a
jewel of a fighter he'll make—the holy St. Patrick,
