The Slantterci* of Henry Clay.
The Albam/ Arnim takes '.he lead in tlie work
of defaming and traducing Mknkv Clav. That
paper ardently supported in 1824 Wm. II. Chaw,
joru, who had killed a mnn in a duel, and in
182S and lb32 Andrew Jackson, who h*H killed,
with great coolness and ferocity, after his oppo
neoi's fire had been drawn, a Mr. Dickerson in h
duel growing out of u quarrel fit a horse-race, and
who had been engaged in a savage pistol-fight
with Col. Benton without even the decorum of a
duel. .Mr. Clay bus twice been engaged in duel?.
?the lard twenty years ago, und each with men
who had heaped upon hint the most unprovoked
and galling insulin und indignities. We think h<
was very wrong in this?just as the man is wrong
who, on the impulse of the moment, knocks down
any one who has spit in his face?ho himsell
thinks so and bus said so. He declared in an
Address to his Constituents, in 1625, in reference
to tho Card he had issued denouncing the un?
known author of the ' Bargain ' slander,
"I feit that I could no longer remain silent, A
criais appeared to me to ha*c aris--ti in my public
lit'-. I issued my card, I ought noi to liave put in
it the ia?t paragraph, because, although it does rue
necea.sarilv iinpU the resort to n personal combat,
it admits of that construction s nor will I conceal
t'nat such a possible issue i*ns within my contem?
plation. I o?e it to tie- community to say, that what
ever heretofore I tnav have done, or, by inevitable
circuniH'anccs, niicht he forced lo do, no man in it
holds in deeper abhorrence than I do, the pemiciout
practice. Condemned hm it must tie in thejudc
ment and philosophy, to say nothing of the religion,
of every thinking man. ii is un affair of feeling about
which we cannot, although we should, reason. It
true corrective will be found when all shall unite,
as all ought to unite, in its unqualified proscription."
Acting on thi* principle, Mr. Clay in I-f 3r
supported nnd voted for the law severely punisl .
ing duels in the District ol Columbia. On th.-.t
occasion he said,
"Vornan would be happier than he to f^c the
whole barharouti system forever eradicated. It wa
?gelt known, ihai in certain quarters of the country,
public opi don was averse irom dueling, und no
man cou d fly in ihe t. ce of thai public opinion,
wilhoul having In- reputation eaciificed; but there
wen- other portions at;ain which rxacted ubedienci
to the taial custom. The man with a high s-ns.. ol
honor, and nn e Sensibility*, when the "question i
whether he ehall fighl "r have the finger of scorn
pointed at him, is Unable to resist, and I, w, \er,
few, ore found willing lo ?dopt sn. h nn alternative.
When public opinion shall be renovated, and clina
tenud hv reason, religion and humntiity, the proc
tice of dueiine will at onci he discountenanced. It
is the office ol legislation to do ?II ii ran to brine
about thai healthful unte of the public mind, und
although it may Dot altogether effect no desirable a
result, \rl he liad no doubt it Would do much Ic
wardw it, and with these views be would give hit
vote for the bill."
And now look at the trrtn? in which the A!
bany Argus hobitunlly speaks of Henry Clay.?
The following resolution of j, Rensselaervilli
meeting, which wo clip Irom it' columns, is h
faithful n flection of the habitual < xhibition of it>
Editorial art icles :

?Such are the charges ngninst Henry Clav?
and they are infamously false. Mr. Clav is not
more a profane swearer, lhan James K. Po!k,
1 hough he doubtless, like most men not professors
of religion, haa at, some time or other u.-ed h.-\rs!i
words which were a gteat deal bett. r unsaid.?
We know that Washington did so, quite as much
as Mr. Clay ever did ; yet Washington was not a
profdwie swearer. How many tuen among us, if
they wefe dogged through all their lives by eves,
droppera and spies, could not be accused of some
such error as this I We ask every tu m to mA.

to have his lowest whisper of indignation at sone
utrocious Villauv (like l'olk's w!u 11 tie turnt d 1 .
iairly chosen Whig Members from Missist
out of their seals by his ca-ding vote.' trumpeted
to the world as an evidence that he wua a habit
fls.1 swearer ? There is a baseness in catching
up such a murmur of indignation and trumpeting
it through the Union which an honorable m.a:
must loathe and abhor, and which the Albam
Argus, in its better days, would have scorned L
A'scend to.
Then as to the charge of gambling?it is a lie,
a trhauiclul lie. The negro on whom Gen. Me.
CnJIa rrdted to substantiate it has plumplv contra
vlicted him. It seems he said he had been " bu\.
ing a pack of cards lor Massa Clay," but there
are several ' .Massa Clays' about Lexington, am
this could not have been Henry Clay, as he has
not knowingly permitted a pack of cards to enter

Clay has often, when traveling or detained from

Our advices Irom New-Orleans are to the morn?
ing alter the Election. The Whigs have done
fir better there than we expected, though they
have been swindled out of a complete triumph by
Loco-Foco anarchy. It being known that the
i Whig Judges would object, of cnur-e, to 'he voters
rauduiently naturalized by Judac Elliott, for
I which he was impeached and on irresistible proof
removed from office by the Legislature, the Loco
j Foeoa resolved that the good toter? thould tits*
: he li'prir.til of their Siiffragfs.' How it re
suited will be scpn by the following from the AW
Orleans Hre of the id :
A Farce?A Broad Farce.
One of those exhibitions, c?.litd elsewhere
! elections, took place in this citv yesterday, which
; would afford Joori (or mirth, did not the rights ,,?
the people, sacrificed ignominiousiv, invoke a
more serious consideration ol it. To the enemies
of free government, the scenes which transpired at
several of the polls, turnish comfort and cause of
exultation, but to a fr.end of liberal institu?
tions, and one devoted to the Constitution and
the laws, they were tokens of an abatement ;ri
the patriotism, not to say courage, of American
citizens, the most melancholy tiiit could be pre.
sented. The rights of legal voters?acknow.
. lodged and known to he such by the judges o"
i i ctions ab well as the whole community?were
I trampled upon and spurned with an indifiercnci
i and safety utterly amazing.
The Whig judges of the elections, without ex.
I ception, determined to reject the votes predicate d
j upon the fraudulent naturalization tickets issued
j by Judge Elliott, who was impeached and turn
? cd out of office for his corruption in making them,
i Because these foreigners were rctuscu a vote for
! good causis. the Loco Koco Judgea in several o'
the Whig Wards closed the polls, or absolutely j
! refused to permit old citizens, known to the whole !
community as legal voters, and admitted by the
I Judges themselves to be so, to exercise the privi
I lege of freemen.
In the Second Ward of the First Municipality
not one vote was taken. Cue ol the oldest and
i most respectable citizens of New Orleans present
I ed himself to the judges, and his vote was refused
j by the Loco-Foco Judges, on the ground that tht
j Whig judge intended o> r,ject tne fraudulent Et?
I liott certificates?this, too, before a tingle Kli.i
I orr vu'er presented kimtelf. He anticipated the
probability of an Elliott voter being rejected,
nid upon that pretence allowed no vom to h<
receiv d. In the First Ward, First Municipality,
which ought to have polled over -I'li) votes, bui
117 votes v.erc taken. Of these the Whigs re.
ceived about 35 majority, II.id die whole poll
been taken, we should h ,vc had over 100 majori
ty. In the Third W ard. Second Municipality,
but eleven votes were taken, when Irom four to
five hundred should have been polled, &c.
Bui epart from the disfranchising ol the citi?
zens of those and other Wards, during Ihe voting,
the must outrageous delays were caused by unite
ccssary wrangling, of such a character, for in.
stance, as the stopping of the polls of the Third
Ward, 2d Municipality, until a voter could go
home and get his naturalization papers?which
might have taken hint the whole day. We have
seen Native-born Citizen? sent away from the
polls to get their tax-receipts out, but tievi rhavc
we witnessed a poll closed for one of our own
j (h oplc or us long as it might suit him lo he ab?
sent.
It is too lute at night to dwell upon the numer.
I ous instances of trifling with the people, through
the day. Insults und wrongs, which they bore
with astonis ling forbearance?with such patience
indeed ns to be remarked upon by strangers as
quite too exemplary, and which we would not hi
surprised to sec entirt ly exhausted wht never the
'ike practices are attempted again.
Hut tor these miserable artifices and positive
outrages, tho Whigs would have obtained a
triumph such as would rejoice the heart ol
? very good Whig throughout the Union. Ai>
it is, we have fleeted nearly the whole of both
of our tickets?hii achievement which may be
considered u great victory, under the circum?
stances. As indicative of the vote at the Presi?
dential election, it ptcsages a complete and glo.
rioua triumph of Henry Clay. Our friends in
other Stutes will doubt the fidelity ol Louisiana
no longer. She will be found1 steadfast when
most needed, and will swell the lide of victory as
it rolls in sublimity over the Union.

There are no bounds to the falsehood and per.

Dt-ars even more obnoxious to Loco Foco de:a

the ? Democratic Rally,1 the Loco-Foco campaign

eevotes nearly two columns to abuse of the Fir;

exciting prejudice against Mr. Frelinghuysen.

Now we do mrjit solemnly affirm that, while we
have been hotly engaged in the 'Native' contro.
versv from the surt, living in this City, readiug
-ill the publications on both Bides, und mingling
freely with all the parlies engaged in the sir:fe,
we nerer heard Mr. Freiing hvysen's name con.
netted with the Xatite American cause until
-incc he hau b'.en nominated fur Vice President.
We know he has never been an ? agitator'in arn
'crusade against foreigners,'has not even attend,
cd a Native meeting, and has never, whi-e among
ns, belonged to any other party than the Whig
:mrty. He is no more the head of the Native
party thati Polk or Dallas is.
The attack on the American Bible Society is
equally unfounded?equally atrocious. Mr. Fre.
linghuysen, though a member and an active cd
vocatc of the American Bible Society, is nr.t its
President?ami, if he were, what then ? We
have come to a pretty piss if that is to exclude
a nnn from office.?Neither has the Bible Society
had anv thing to do with ihe School Question ;
nnr h&s Mr. Frelinghuysen been in any way a
' leader' or conspicuous at ali in the School con?
troversy. We presume his sentiments, his sym?
pathies run counter to ours on that question, but
we have never kn?wn him as an opponent,
n;ir in anv way involved in the controversy. But
his friends have not dragged this local question
into the Presidential contest: and bis adversaries
will do well to let it alone. Thry will make
nothing by Bssailing a candidate for h:s suspect,
ed attachment to the Rtceivid Version of tne
Bibic when that topic has nothing to do with the
contest.

We have before us "' Thoughts o.i the Proposed

a more perfect expose* of the injustice, dishonesty
and impolicy of thin wild scheme of Loco.Foco.

articles, so sound in argument on the constitu?
tional department of the question, and so abund.

through the nomination of Polk and Dalits, into
a reluct tut support of Annexation. They arc the
liest antidote for the Texas poison we have yet

dclphia, and demanded an instant and unqualified
'ip >!ogy or he would be under the necessity ol
taking satisfaction in another way. Some gen
tleman cried nut "Knock him down first, and
then take his apology," but a meek and humble
apology being given, the gentleman resumed his
walk with the Ituies. A few such les.-otis in
Broadway will prove of incalculable benefit. It
is but justice to say that the off. nder was not an
inmate or boarder of Mr. Cozzcns's respectable
Hotel.
IL>* The Detroit Free Pres? asserts that the

Probably the Imports and the Revenue are
heavier this year than they will be for some
years hereafter, as the Country in January iast

"THE TARIFF...

the public. All who hare observed my course-. w
;nn.i I have at all times been opposed to the "P. .
tecthre policv." I am for laying such moderate dj
ties on imports a? will raise revenue rnousb. when
added to ine income from ttv sale of lands and other
incidental sources, m defray the rip-use* oi Govern?
ment economically administered. 1 am in favor ofa
rarifT for Revenue, and opposed to aTariffyw* Pro
textion. I was a member of Congress during the
period that liii- nihjeci excited great interest. I ?h
opposed to the Protective Tarirt* of IR'.S. and voted
against ir. 1 voftlilor the act of 1832?because it
reduced the Tariff of 1 S8to lower rates. That made
some reduction, though not as much. as I desired to
have made. I voted iorthoact of March 2d. 1833,
(commonly called the Compromise Act) which re
(turpd the rates of the act ol 1833 to still lower rates,
and finally, brought the rates of tbe actul lS32dowi
to a point at which no arti'-le was, after the liOtii r>t
June, li4-. to hi- subject to a duty high*.- thitn 'JO
per cent. I'nis was the law when the Whig Con?
gress csnie info power. By the Tariff act of the 30th
August. 1842, the Compromise Act was violated and
r>-p-nlf-H. I H'n opposed to the or: of 1842, not re?
garding it to be a Revenue Tariff but in many of its
provisions highly protective anil oppressive in its
i-hatarier. lain in favor of tu* restoration of the
Compromise Act of B.-tS."
He goes on to arjjuc th.it the passage of this
act is a violation of tiic (.'omproi.ii.se, assails Mr.
Clav on liiftt ground, and proeeeds to specify the
duties on Salt, Sugar, Sates, Axe.*, Sythes, Iror..
Ct/tton and Woolen fabrics, vie. as oppressive
und such as outfit to be repealed. And yet the
frm men of Pennsylvania and New-Je sey, the
Salt-boilers of Sahna, ?Jcc ttc. arc told that it is a
iVA.-rr lie that Polk is opposed to the prcsm*
Tariffand in fnvor of reducing it to 20 percent.'
Polk strenuously ohjec's (May IT, IS43.) thai
: he present Tariff will not raise Revenue enough,
tnd that it is causing the Government to sink
Het per and tieeper ;tt debt. A httle year has
passed, and now his partisans are clamoring th
it produces too much Revenue, and will pay oil
tbe Deb- loo soon ! There is no keeping Hum t,
any one important position for a year.
Tariff Reminiscences.
On the day that the present rariff passed tht
House of Representatives, (Aug. 22d, 1843,) the
Giohr said of it,
'? The bill it* it has note passed :.? utterly reVUB
rt'ii,! tu the victes of th-' rhuie Democratic party,
although some of them voted for it."
.Such was the nearly if nut quite unanimous
expression of tue Loco-Foco press,
Mr. Charles Brow.v, a L-ieo Foco member
from Tariff Pennsylvania, expressed the sent',
tnents of thf'fc Loco-Focoa who voted for lite ;>;ll
as follows :
ROUII or Representatives, I
To the Editor*J the Giobe: Augusts, ISU. >

est pill I had ev,-r hail ti< swallow ; and that the nr
eetitty of the case ab me could induce me in vote nyr.
And -.no ure als? correct in saying that the Demo?
crats who voted fur the bill did so against both theii
inclination and their judgment; at lenst l know ii
tvas si, w ith me. Nothing Im: tue deplorable situa

misrule of I lie Whig majority in (.'onetess, and ihe
abandonment of the wreck ihey had made, th- doubt?

those who believe high tariffs or taxes will promote
the interests of the people.
Nor would these, .irong as they ate, have been
sufficient reasons, had i; not been tor the hop.- that
the .-'en ite would remove liom the bill some of its
more onerous provisions ; am! should this hope fail,
the full confidence ihn' nt an early day a Demo
erotic Congerts would remove sucn portions of n

country, or any ui iis industrial pursuits. Nor will
it he less their duty In reduce the expenditures oi

only true ami efficient means of bringing permanent
relief to all patts ol the country arid rtducini the

Youn. truly. (.'IIA RLES URi iWN.
Such i> the original, unequivocal sentiment of
that party toward the Tariff and the Protective
poliey. Every intelligent man knows that the
triumph of Pulk is the overthrow of the Tarill
And vet there are men constantly engaged in
swindling the People of the Free Stale-into a
belief that Pulk is not hostile to the Tariff!

Resolved, I hat while we remember the lessons
laugiii tu in- richool Masters of our own Revolu

scended from sires to sons, while we enjoy the hless
ings which can only he preserved hv such lessons
and principles, and while the watch-fires of Civil

the presence of the number of military compa?
nies now here, every reflecting man doubts?
Southwark is quiet?no mobs?no unlawful as
semblages?no outrages havo been committed
since Monday. The District Authorities have
complete control and arc able and willing to m iin
tain it. Do they wish, with Gov. Porter at their
head, to intimidate and overawe the people ol
Southwark and the Civil Authorities, in the legi
timatc performance of their duty 7 I hope not,
and any attempt to wrest from die hands of the
people the exercise of a noble trust, terrible must
be the consequences
The multitude about the Girard Hank has
continued since 1 dispatched my last, the troops
having been drawn up in rnilitary array lor t.tc

All is yet quiet. Rumors are plenty, but must

At the tap of u drum in front of the Girard

' The Natives, it is reported, have alarge/erce
of arms and ammunition at Red Hank; awaiting
j an entrance of the military into the District.
The Sheriff was requested, I have just been in

' whether he bus done so or not I cannot learn.

The troops, or the greater part of them, have

j himself to the practice of his profession?avoid.
ing all pi iiucal stations, until recently, he vikf
persuaded to suffer liimsell to be elected mem.
bi r ol the Convention to form a Constitution loi
Hie State. He v.'js chosen Prcsi''ent of the Con.
vention by a unanimous vot", and up to the lasi
ten days of the session, he discharged the duiic:
! of that honorable post.
Recurring indisposition induced him then tt
j resign, and he returned home?there to die, atnic
: kindred, and neighbors, and children, who knew
j and could best appreciate his virturs?who will
J be the first and |i>rtn-est to deplore his loss.
Gov. Williamson's intercourse with the world
; was marked by singular simplicity and cheerful.
I ness; with Ins family, by the greatest tenderness
; and affection ; toward -ill lie was without guile;
; and it may be said of him wiih truth?what c in
r m ly be said ol a man so distinguished?that lie
has not left an enemy behind.
Lost Children.?The following touching in?
stances of suffering speak most ihriilingly of the
i destitution and sorrow caused by the late Hoods
: in Illinois and Missouri. Wc copy from the St.
i Louis Republican of the 29th :
Mr. Henry Bucksathj No. 17 Locust-street, took
iifi in the street on Thursday a little giil aboui two
years old, very poorly dressed, no shoes or bonnet
j on. The little, thing was unable to give her name,
I or where she is from.
Another, a boy, about thfe years old, light hair,
with striped clothes, speaking very little?all he
says is that his mother ts in the tenter?eamo to the

A New Safety Bank Lock.?Wefeel warranted
in saying that a perfect security against burglars
as at last been attained, by the production of anew
Changeable Combination Lock, recently presented
by our ingenious townsman Mr. H. C. Jo.srs, and
Mr. Wm. II. Hall ol Boston. We bad ihepleasure
ol iril.' it taken to piece:, yesterday uu ef circuin?
stances which warrant the belief lhnt it cannot be
pickeii nor opened with any other key whatever that
ingenuity may contrive, but the one which last
i. < ;,e,? [-. \i j., behaved to be :n some material
;i.irf:cule'H an improvement upon any lock that Ims
v~t been offered to the public in Europe or America,
and the various securities it atT.rds to the ownei
-eem to place it beyond the fear of lailure. We may
idd Hint it is 80 constructed, that the owner iri'tv Bo
change its parts as to place ii beyond the knowledge
or skill of tue maker himself, and hence the oatue
?Changeable Lock.
So entirely confident of its entire safety are the
patentt'; :t Mr. J.,ne? offers a reward of $000 to
any one who will np-n it without the u-e ofthe kev
which itt-t locked it, even after being permitted bi
tike it apart and make a thorough examination nf

more liberal, ttie person who will uadertake t..

I The news (torn Phikddpnia received tins
-?.-?in" continues to be of a pacific character.
Order had ban completely rest-red, and St.
i Philip's Church bad been given opto ihe con
! a-eJtion. The crowds around the military
Ld quarters, Girard Bank, had dwindled from
thousands to hundreds, and no appreaensww
wer- felt of a renewal of the riots, provided the
j military did not enter the riotous district. A
soldier who had wandered into the vicinity
Of the church was compelled to leave hastily,
by a small knot?.: men, probably a fragrm M of
the dispersed mob.
The following paragraphs are from the G?:ttt'
I of yesterday:
1 We are pained to learn that a party m tnsur.
: gents nr.- still bent upon resisting thcJaws, ami
arc seeking the mean* of doing so. V\e entreal
I our fcllow-ci izens not to enter into, or wunten.
ance such mad proceedings. They can never
succeed. Why should they sacrifice life in the
I madness of a determination to h-vc revenge on
th< se who went to to the combat ?nly to protect
property, and with no selfish wish ?
It has been asserted in various quarters that
1 the military were not warranted by any necessity
? I in taking possession of St. Philip's Church on
Sunday?that the civil brcc which had been in
I J the Church until Sunday afternoon was compe?
tent to protect the building, and willing to do ro.
' We are informed tint, so :nr from this bc;ti,j the
fact, committees watted upon the Maj r General,
? begging that the mi?tary might be sent to take
I possession of the Church, as the force ol Natives
r then in it could nm hold out Bgainsl the mob half
an hour longer, rt wasonly after two or three
requests of this nature that ihe military were nr.
, dercd to the spot. Thi ir presence w..s therefi re
' not only justified, but demanded, mid the Com
mandcr or thcrnsclvcs had no choice h. tween trie
' course adopted and a gross neglect of duty.
We believe that what is here stated can be fully
substantiated. It is of little import whether the
Committees were authorized or not to state what
they did. I he duty of the milit try was to notice
and hct iijH.u the summons. U was not a mo.
mcnt u.r prolongtd and formal negotiations.
IvKMLtav.?On the 3d instant the Whigs of
Kentucky nobly responded to a summons t ? as.
gcmblein mass meeting at Lexington, by con.
grcgating there to the number of some ti teen
thousand, representing all parts of the Sute.
The procession moved on foot, in carriages, on
horseback, in wagons, and every sort ol vehicle
that could he procured : and, after marching
through the city, proceeded to the grounds of the
Kentucky Association, where the Convention
was organized l>y appointing the venerable Gov,
' Mltch kh as President ol the d y. The ordet
ol proceedings-*** then announced by General
j- Cohm, and the meeting opened by prayer. When
these preliminaries were concluded, (as we learn
' from the '? Western Citizen :")
Gov. Metcalfk :?>>>? and led the way in'- a
- most felicitous and happy speech of half -an
hour's length, Mi ch showed that the strength' of
nis arm wa< hin! great and the fires of his in tel.
lect yet bright and glowing. Then followed,, in
their order, Hon. Bkn. Hardin. Hon. T/ho?.
KwiNO.ol Ohio, Hon Vir. MaksiialuoI lnc?i?na,
and last, but not least, John J. t rjttskden, 'Ken.
tucky's distinguished son.
So griat w.ts the multitude that it becatxte n*.
cessary to erect, a second stund tor another set of
speakers. Among the orators that addressed ihn
people Irottt this stand were Hon. '?m South,

nicle says : Hy a gentleman just from St. Lain,
i we have the latest intelligence from Nauvoo?as
late as Sunday the 30Ui. Things remained quiet,
and the Mormons were disposed to peace. The
impression at St. Louis was, that Joe. Sin th had
been killed by the guard, inconsequence ol some '
attempt to csoaj \ and not, as w as .stated, by a
diguised mob. We hope this impression is cor
reel.

very unlike the course of similar fanatics. It i?.

a Convention of Delegates from iho Mormons

The original intention of the Convention, an we
