«£tje Constitutional SHIMS*
Ta regard to his correspondent. Appomatox, who
it may be remembered, charged Mr. Randolph with
assuming t *o command of the Concord, the Editor
of the New York Commercial observes:
“Ron John Randolph—Wo publish as in duty
bound the following article from the Norfolk Herald,
contradicting-a statement made in this paper We
shall be glaa if the report srhicb we published turns
out to be utterly unfounded Cut wo were not im
posed upon as to the hand writing of ourcorrncfpond
ent The source, as we seated, v?as a most honorable
one; and the imposition, if there was one. must have
been practised upon.him. We shall no doubt hear
from him on the subject.”
We shall keep an eye on any subsequent communi
cation of Aopomatox: meanwhile we cannot help re
marking, that a m >8t preposterous fuss has been
made about the afRiir. Suppose Mr Randolph did
tell Capt. Perry that he was now entitled to the
Command of the Consord? Is it more extravagant
than a thousand other things which that eccentric
personage has been doing all his life? It argues no
moral reprnaoh,*bnd true or false, was a thing only to
be laughed at if true, and laughed at and corrected,
if untrue It is undeserving serious consideration
one way or the other. Randolph’s spaniels however,
of which no man ever had so many, or so thorough
bred,raise their bristles and curl their tails, as if sac
rilege at the least had been attempted
Having concluded his business at Columbus, Mr
Clay was on his return to Kentucky, by the Yellow
Springs, Cincinnati,&c.. received every where with
spontaneous and enthusiastic demonstrations of wel
come, especially by the laboring classes, the arislocra
eg of which we hear in the Jackson prints ThS
* vivacity of his welcome, so different from the chilling
reception of the President, clothed with the parnphar
Oalia of power, and escorted by an almost regal suite,
has maddened the Her >ical9 Thoy have according
ly, re-oponed tho sluice of traduction upon him, and
served up Walsh’s wit in new and endless variety.
■aoovc every tmng, tney dread Ulay s communion
With the people his frank and flowing manners, his
eaiy and Republican plainness of address, his views
of public affairs, so comprehensive in their scope, and
enforced by eloquence so matchless and irresistible.
They well know that their dirty slanders, misrepre
sentations, and innumerable frauds upon popular ig
oorance. evaporate before his tremendous elocution
like mists before the rising sun. /line ilfee lacrymce
—bence the holy horror of these plain Republicans,
at public dinners, and dinner speeches—that is to say,
at Clay's dinner speeches—for we hear no censure
Don them when the dinner speech proceeds from Mr.
Randolph, Mr. P P Barbour, Mr. Hayne die die
No—a dinner is only objectionable when Henry Clay
is the object of popular hospitality, ora dinner speech
when he makes it!
Well may it be so. We recognize good cause for
their objections VVherevcr Clay goes and is heard,
ignorance i8 undeceived, prejudice disabused, and po
pular error put to flight. We thank God it is so—
and that there is one man bald, fearless and compe
tent, to beard an administration, no'more ridiculous
in the feebleness of its head and members, than for
midable from the despotism of its measures. We only
wish that the American People could be condensed
into one audience, to hear the words of political sal
vation from the man whom we believe Heaven has
vouchsafed for the preservation of Public Liberty, or
that Henry Clay could traverse every town, village
and county of the U. States.
Let his enemies rail and sneer and slander. Let
every aspirant make common cause against a man,
hated, because feared—and every Secretary, and ev
ery Treasury sucker, turn loose the vile Presses un
der their influence—let that universal combination of
the ambitious, the mercenary and the servile, conti
nue, as it has existed from 1825—and all signalize
their fears, their envy and their hatred, by nbuse of
Mr. Clay—justice, though slow, never fails at last.
Tho universality, the ferocity and the relcntlessness
of the hostility, proves the secret dread, and the over
awing sense entertained of Clay’s great abilities_
Gucli a nation deserves 6uch a President, and such a
one she will have.
Prom the Cincinnati Gazette of theCDth ult., we
give the following sketch of the proceedings at Co
lumbus and elsewhere:
Springjield, July 24.
Mr. Cray—Tho determination ot Mr CUy. to vir
it Columbus on business, and return home without
permitting hims-dftobe made the object of any dis
play or parade, has been overruled by the irresistible
operation of public sentimeut. At Chilicotlie and at
Circleville, upon his road to Columbus, the people
very reluctantly suffered him to pass without any pub
lic demonstration of their regard. During the first
week of the court, his friends, from other’ par's of
the State, acting in concert with himself, were suc
cessful in repressing the apparently universal wish to
mark Ins visit with some manifestations of regard.—
But, on Monday morning of tho second week, the
mechanics of Columbus resolved to act upon their
own counsels, and about one hundred of them met
early in the morning at the public room of Mr. J.
Toung. They resolved to invite Mr Clayton me
chantes' dinner, and on the instant more than ninety
subscribed their nnuvs, and chose their committee of
arrangements. The invitation was presented and
very respectfully declined by Mr Clay, Upon the
reception of his declination, the committee waited
Upon him, and so pressed the matter upon him, as to
leave him no alternative, but that of accenting the!
dinner. 1* was Tuesday afternoon before the nocep
tance was given, and Thursday was fixed ns the day
The dinner was served up by Mr. J. Young, in he
market house, and was attended by nearly three hun I
dred persons, principally the farmers and mechanics
of the vicinity. Some half dozen lawyers, who re- !
mained at court, were of the company. The .T-idg |
. cs of the P.-deral court were invited, but declined!
attendance, in conformity, as it is uKderstood, with;
a rule they have prescribed for themselves, and do not j
mean to depart from. The Marshal, the Clerk, tho
Post Master, and come other oGiocrs rf /cforp, with
un> {secretary of State, kept aloof. About the time
it was expected that Mr. Clay would address the
company, a bevy of'tadies was introduced Mr. Clay
spoke for m<>ra than an hour, very frequently inter
rupted by bursts of applause. I shall not attempt to
give a sketch of what ho said, and I understand that
no copy can be had for publication. Thirteen regu
lar toasts were given, and a number of volunteers'_
The regulars are subjoined:
1. Our Country. Rich in various materials and in
skilful operatives: Nothing can make her poor but
the selfish views and sectional jealousies of her Mas
ter Workmen.
2. Tim memory of Geo. Washington A Far

improved channels of intercommunication were the

the patriots of an age gone by
4. Agriculture, Internal improvements and Domes

Among the volunteers the following was given, I
believe by Job Ridgeway, who nf&cirtfed as^ Presi
Hanrv Clay. A first rate political workman: The

Some one of the most active individuals in getting
op ihis dinner, soppor'cd and voted for Gen. Jackson,
at the last Presidential election. They now say they
can no longer give him their support. I am told some
efforts were made bv the caucus-mongers and drill
sergeants to whip them in, vbich were repelled and
rebuked with a proper spirit. During »he dinner, the
little knot about Columbus, so appropriately descri
bed in the 9th toast, herded together in two or three
squads, wearing rather disconsolate aspects, and oc
casionally making an effort at a jest. Qae or two of
them heard the 6peoch, and pronounced it a wretched
failure. Any lawyer in Columbus could have made
as good a one ’ ! ! However there is not much ex
traordinary in this After the various assertions
made in the Caucus address, and vouched for by forty
of the party, no hardihood of assertion tliou’d sur
prise us.
Mr. Clay left Columbus yesterday, and came hero
abont eleven o’clock »o-day. Six miles from town he
was met by a number of the citizens of the village
and its vicinity, and escorted inio town. His arrival
was announced by the firing of cannon. He was re
ceived by the citizens with strong demonstrations of
satisfaction, and as lie passed the mound and Mr.
Werden’s tavern a band of music greeted him by
playing Hail Columbia and Yakee Doodle in succes
sion. He dines at Mr. A. L Hum’s with a number
of the citizens, and proceeds m the Yellow Springs
this afternoon, which he will probably leavo on tho
afternoon of Monday
I perceive that the Jackson papers insist that Mr.
Clay’s visit was made for political efTect. The fart
is not so, yet it is not worth while.to contend with
them about it. His friends and himself have an un-'
doubted right to roeommend themselves and him by
the very simple measure of securing his fellow cit i
zens an opportunity to see and converse with him.
Nothing more is necessary to remove the mountain
ot prejudice that has been rais.-d up against him
His principal opponents know this. Hence their re
tainers are ins1 meted to stop at nothing which may
keep the people from rightly knowing him.
Louisiana Election.—Tho vote of Roman, the
Clay candidate for Governor of Louisiana, was by
tho WHtaka of the compositor, stated in yesterday’s
Whig, at 2638, instead of 5533. The result of the
election was as follows:—
For Governor—Roman (Clay) 3635—Hamilton
(Jackson) 2701—Beauvais (Clay) 1478—Randall (un
known) 463.
The Great Northern Storm. — We continue to re
ceive ar-countu of the distressing ravages of the late
storm, which swept through tho Northern part of
N. York. Vermont. N Hampshire, Maine, &c. The
Troy (N. Y ) Sentinel says:—
“Thcstorrn commenc' d a', noon on Saturday. 24th
July, and continued till the ensuing Wednesday
The quantity of rain which fell was unexampled and
the destruction very gren>, the damage being ep«ima
ted at a million of dollars The country which has
thus been visited, as far ah has been heard, is the
upper part of Essex and Clinton counties. New York,
and Addison and Chittenden counties, in Vermont.
A letter to Mr. J C II 'artt, of Troy, from the Su
perintendent of the Peru Iron Works, at Clintonville,
dat d the 27th July, speaks of the desolation along
the An Sable river a* defying description Wo wait
with great anxiety to henr from Keen«ville below,
and Jay. Keene and Wilmington above us Rushing,
as the sources of the An Sable do, from the highest ;
mountains in the State, it may safely be calculated i
that every thing above us, will, ere the desol.v ion
ceases, be swop- by the board. Newp from Keens- •
vdle inform us that all the bridges at that place, in- 1
eluding the new stone bridge, n saw mill, and all the
logs in the river, are swept away- There is proba
bly no» a saw-log remaining on the An Sable river.
In the neighborhood of Lake Champlain the storm ,
was very destructive, commencing on Saturday.
The Vermont Aurora, states that at Beman's Hoi- I
low. eight miles smith of Virgenncs, several person? ;
had boon swept off. with nearly all the buildings 1
The waters came suddenly upon the inhabitants^
night It had been ascertained that 14 person? per
iphed. Among them were Mr Nathan Stewart, his
xvlfe and four children; the wife of Mr. John Wilson,
and tho»r three children. Several of the bodies had
been found. Two men lost their lives near Robuieou s
mills, in Fcrrisburg. , Reports from the town on On
ion river lead to the supposition that the storm lius
been experienced most, severely in that direction.
Several bridges in Burlington and vicinity have ' eeii
swept away. Messrs. Otlimcl, Jewett, and Davitf
P. Nash, arc said to be the greatest sufferers by the
loss of property in New Haven Agriculture -has

Great Northern Storm.—The Middlcbury (Vt.)
Republican gives some further particulars of this
scene of devastation:
Two fancies by the name of Furr were taken from
their houses on rafts, one of them in the midst of the
storin and darkness, frmn the windows of the second
story of the house. The family oi'Col. Win P. Nash,
whose wife was confined to bed by sickness, remain
ed all night in th<* upper rooms of the house, while
the lower part was filled with water,and without all
was darkness and doubt A state of suspense and
dread mor horrible cannot wdl be imagined—pla
ced in the midst of a flood threatening to sweep all
before it, danger and death staring them in the lace,
without any means or any possibility of escupe. The
situation and escape ot Mr. C. Claflin was still more
fearful and singular. Mr. C. was aroused in the night,
and upon going to the door found that the water 7md
already risen to such a height around the house as to
prevent.Jiis escape from it. He accordingly took a
cord from a bedstead, and having conveyed his chil
dren into the top of an elm tree, which stood near, fas
tened them to it by means of the rope. He also suc
ceeded in getting his wife and a young infan' a few
weeks old. into the same place, where they await
ed iu agonizing anxiety the return ot‘ light*. They j
were rescued from their situation with much difucul- 1
ty the m?xt morning.
1 he circumstances in which those who were carried
away were separated from tboir frieuds and neigh
bors. were heart rending in the highest degree. Mr.
Eldridge and his two sons, with Mr. Somers and one
or two others, went to the ass stance of Mr Srewort
and his family in the house. The water rising rap
idly they all fled from the house to a barn which
stood oil higher ground, and while preparing a raft
of the barn doors and such other materials as were
at hand, the barn was carried awav by the force of
the cur=ont.
Some it is supposed were killed by the fal' of the
hnrn all. with th" exception of one boy who caught
by n bush und was subsequently saved were carried
down the stream, till the river meets with Otter
Creek, where Mr Eldndg" and one son, and one or'
two others, with grea difficulty escaped. two
ov three different times, Mr Eldridge had his son who
was los:, in Ins arms, but was torn from him eacli
time by the violence of the current and the wrecks of
the buildings.
Cn-e of distress were heard by those who wero
upon the banks ot the stream, and as they continued,
seemed to pass down with the current. The deep
darkness of the night and the fury of the inundation,
shut out every thing from tlieir sight, and precluded
the possibility of affording any assistance, and they
were compelled to beur, in 6iJent agony, the shrieks &.
supplicat ions of their perishing neighbors and friends
without being able to afford any succor. Mr. Wil
son, at the time his house began to give way before
the water, the chimney having already fsMen. was
standing with his son near a door—the remainder of
the family were above, and as the building fell into
the current bis son and himself plunged into the wa
.ter and swam towards the land, while the wife and
children were hurried to destruction by the rushing
torrent. Mr. Wilson heard the cries oflns family ns
they were swept away and swallowed up by the’de
vouring flood.
The following is an extract of a lette.'from a cor
respondent of the ISew York Post, dated Hanover,
(N. H.) July 29.
Phis is the sixth day since we have not seen fbc
sun. and the rain is still pouring down. Such n storm
as this part of the country lias been visited with at
this season of the year, is not within the recollection i
ot the oldest inhabitants. The damage of the crops
in the Connecticut valley, by the waters overflowing
the meadows, is immense—every thing is under wa“
ter—Several pmall bridges over the tributary' streams
which empty into the Conneeticut, on our route from
liittleton to this place, have been carried away, and
we were forced off the mail route, through bye"roads, •
over bill Sf dalo. ’till wc were almost pounded to a jelly, i
Every one of my bones complains. If we get on 25 i
miles in 12 hours, we think we have performed a great
day’s wo'k. The towns on the west side of the river |
have suffered most by the inundation. At Montpe-i
lier, the seat of government in Vermont, two dwel I
ling houses and one stone house on the Onion river,!
were swept away, and other damages sustained. At
tlio town of ilethel. situate on a branch of the White
river, about 30 miles from this, all the mills and bridg
es have been swept off. I have not heard of the loss
of but one life yet.’’ i

as I can preceivc. with n general wish that l lie Ex

not very fair to presume that the French, who pos

of such importance at this crises in every point ofvicw,

every exigency and reduced the chance of victory, ns

they think the people at fir.-t will resist till they nro
tired or terrified; when they will cut off the head of
the present Dey, and set up another in his place for

Census of Baltimore.—Tlic detailed returns of tho
census of the city *>f Baltimore have been made up—
from which it appears that the aggregate population
of Baltimore, on the 1st June. 1350. was 80,510 In'*
the year 1820, the population was 62.738, making an
increase in the last ten years of 17,781 souls, or at
the rate of about thirty per cent!

UJ‘ It is staled m the Columbia S. C. Times, that
the rrade ot that town has increased, and is increasing,
with great rapidity. In 1825, the receipts of cotton

Tho. Ritchie out Ilitchicd-We had imagined
that the inconsistency of the Editor of .he Enquirej
was unique in its extravagance—that “none but him
self, could be his parallel.” But some revelations in
the Carleston Gaz-tle, bid fair to deprive him of the
pre eminence he bus enjoyed since 1323. In that city
there is a Mr. Henry L. Pinukney, Editor of the
Charleston Mercury, a flaming Jacksonite, and tho
high Priest o 1 nullification. This pcrsonag'c was a
member of Assembly in ’23, and of tho caucus which
m the winter of that year, brought forward Mr. Cal
houn for President. In i,kc caucus, ho thus delivered
“Mr. Chairman: I am astonished that anv cue

Jl mm mt ruled ami perfect Gold Washing
A company of gentlemen, acquainted with'1 tho
Arts and JVlincrology. have invented, and with the
assistance of one of the first Mechnnicks of oUr
time have put into operation, a model of-a Machine
lor \\ ashing of Gold; and one, which is more perfect
than any thing of the land in this or any other court*
In consequence of which, they hnve determined to
notify the 1 white of ’heir discoveries, nnd to give
tneoi the opportunity of being benefited thereby
Among the many and incalculable advantages, arc
the fallowing: This Machiue discovers in a very fevv
moments, whether or not there is any gold in the
soil, and separates the purified gold from every kind
of substance, such as stones, gravel, clay, sand, &ic..
&c. without the expense of chemical process, and
without losing one singlo atom of the gold contained
in the ground; and the rapidity of the machine is so
great that it will wash an immense quantity o.t'
ground in the course of the day,and in the proportion
of the power employed; which may be either man,
horse, water, or steam, so in the proportion will ho
j the quantity washed.
Owners of land, containing gold, arc therefore n.Q
tihed that if they wish to make use of this machine,
they may do so by communicatiug by mail, ipnyiii"
postage.) with either of the directors of the coinpa*^
ny, to wit, Lewis Eisejnnenger. Richmond, Virginia,
or J. G. Ritter. No. 2G3 North Second Street, Phil

and who will contract on very liberal terms, for a
proportion of the ueit proceed—and they ure not
disposed to contract on any other terms-consider*
| *nS **• fair, when they say, no profit—no pay.
Qj* Some experiments were made by Mr. Eisep.
menger a few days since, in this city, in the preseuco
of a number of gentlemc:i,.of the utility of the above
described machine, which seamed to justify all that
j i3 claimed fl»r it iu the n'^B^ioticc, as to its discov*
i or*DS fit® existence of goPu and separating it from
; the earth, &c. with great rapidity and at little cx
i pense.
! Editors generally, would confer a public benefit by
noticing this important invention, and aid Sir. Eisen

who is highly recom'm mded by Gea Lafayette) iu
• introducing it in*.> general use.
