^onsmutcoual esujca, Tue8€ltMry Evening. Jtug. 1«. CULPEPER ELECTION, ohn S. Pendleton* and Edmund Hroadus, elect. «d to tho Houso of Delegates. In this District, the contest for Congress lias bcon fought upon Jackson A anti-Jackson grounds. Mr. J. S. Harbour was denounced as hostile to Jackson’s election, and virtually admitted tho charge. Col. Wallace placed his claims very much upon Jacksonism—tho two papers at Warrcnton & the one at Culpeper C. House, all strangely touched r,1 1 atl ^urenism, kept up an incessant fire upon Mr. Barbour, who had no ally among the Press in in Jjstrict. In that powerful and enlightened District, heretofore so strong for Jackson, it appears that a politician may actually refuse to wear Jack son’s collar and lire. Countrymen—here is a change —a noblo and glorious change—a change from beastly, degrading and unqualified servility to ouo mar., and one man’s name, to a manly and inde pendent oxorciso of the rights of free opinion and free conduct. We highly esteem and respect Col Wallaco—wo aro sure that he ombraced Jackson isin honestly, and without a view to a seat in Con gross—we shall at tho first leisuro. publish his ad dress, in which ho makes this manifest—but wo do not the loss rejoice in his defeat—in the defeat of any man, who claims aftor two year’s experience of Gen. Jackson’s ridiculous incompetency, to rido into Congress upon his back. Wcro it a fatli r, in stead of a friend, wc could find it in our heart to rejoice. Wo are soiry to find Col. Wallace on the road to Van Burcn Jacksonism—sorry for his sako, for wo know tho man—we were suro that as it af fected his political prospects, he would arrive tho *‘day aftor tho fare." A lottor from Culpopor says— Jkffp.rson-to.v, Va., Aug. lltli, 1831. Gentlemen: Tho election in this county (Culpe por) closed tills evening. I have not hoard from all tho^ precincts, or I would send you a statement. John S. Pendleton is certainly elected to the Legis lature. Tho vote between Breadus and Ilansbrough is a very close one, so much so, that I cannot say I which is elected, but think it probable that Hroadus is. bo far as I have heard, Barbour has boat his -thorough-going” Jacksonian opponent [Wallace] Irotn 8 to 900 votes. Fauquier has yet to vote. 1 he impression of many, is, that Harbour icill beat him in that county: If P0, lie will ho elected to Congress by a majority of from 800 to 1000. The result of this election will prove that Jacksonism is on tho wane, at least, in this District. £See the voto in another place.] GOL. JOHNSON. Wo at length, find room for the letter of this Hero of delicate negotiations—a task for which ho ia so admirably adaptod, by tho habits of his life. The Globe, tho Baltimore Republican, tho Richmond Enquirer, and the wliolo Jackson licn dall Press, exult, over Col. Johnson’s letter, as decisive, as demolishing, as giving tho coup dc grace, to Berrien, Ingham and Branch, and annihi lating their character for veracity. The Richmond Enquirer this morning exclaimed—“The following letter of Col. R. M. Johnson of Ivy. gives tho coup de grace to all the misrepresentations which have been got up by Mr. Ingham, published by Mr. Bdrrien, and so industriously circulated by the opposition,” Who but a partizan would wcigli the word of Richard M. Johnson, against that of Judge Berrien? Who but a reckless partizan, wold con tend that tho single ovidencc of Col. Johnson, outweighed the concurrent testimony of Berrien, Ingham, and Branch? In what sort of scales does our contemporary weigh moral probabilities, and in what school of jurisprudence, lias he studied tho principles and rules of evidence? "We understand that there is evidence in Virginia, which will convict Col. Johnson and support Messrs. Berrien, (cc. We understand that to two gentlemen of high standing in Western Virginia, Col. Johnson made substantially the same statement which ho made to Mr. Berrien, and which, irt his letter from the Blue Springs, lie disavows. Wc understand that Mr. Berrien lias been apprised of this circumstance, nnd he, if he deems it at all necessary, which he probably does not, and which the public at largo certainly docs not, will no doubt take tho necessary stops to adduce it before the public. ALL HAIL KENTUCKY! The Frankfort Commentator F.xtra, of Saturday evening, Aug. 6, brings the latest intelligence.—By this it appears that Davis, Marshall, Allan, Letcher, Tompkins and Chilton (Clay) aro certainly olected* te Congress—The Jacksonians have certainly elect ed Johnson, Wickliffc, Adair, and Lccomplc, tho thrcolart by slender majorities. Some doubt ycl hung over the District, lately represented by Dr. Gaither, hut tho probability is, that ho has been turned out by Brents, (Clay.) The district re presented by Chittenden I.yon, tho remotest in Kentucky, not definitively heard from. Tho LonJ isvillo Journal of tho 6th, says, that in Todd, Christian and Trigg, Breathitt’s majority over Ly on, was 6 or 700—that in Hopkins, Breathitt, (Clay,) was 36 votes ahead the first day. Wo also loam from another quarter, that ho was run ning ahead in McCracken. Two years ago, the Jackson men elected 10 out of 12, members of Congress. 'Ffyey wjU n,oyr probably lose £ in 1? Tn the Legislature, the Clay triumph is decisive. <Of the Delegates certainly known to be elected, 40 were for Clay, against 15, Jackson. The balance] would lie most likely in the same proportion. A fetter from Frankfort of Aug 6, snys: “If Mr. Berrien’s address to the public had made rits appearance in this State three weeks before our ^elections came on, the whole of our delegation, in -.Congress, would probably have been opposed to vGen. Jackson. Several distinguished men, of the .Jackson party, hare renounced the Gcnetel since the appearance of Mr. B’s publication. Mr. Clay will hare a decided, indeed I may say a ,large, majority o-f friends, in the House of Repre sentatives of this State, at. tho'eastring session.— We have heard from forty-four counties, which send sixty-nine members—forty-nine arc for Clay, ant! twenty for Jackson. Majority for Clay, twenty, nine. The House of Representatives contains one hundred momlters—Clay will ho-ve about sixty-two to nixty.six, and Jackson the bal ance. In the Senate, Mr. Clay will have a small majority. In the counties heard from, Mr/Clny has gained, since the last Legislature, about fifteen members.” The Commentator of same dale : “Tfentucky is herself again! She will adhere to the Union, in every vicissitude and emergency, and to that system upon which her prosperity and best interests aro based. In the hour of trial, she has been found true to her principles, and her victory has been triumphant. The cause of HENRY Cl.AY and tho cause of the country, the great cause of republican government and democratic principles, has prevailed. Like a giant, she has roused her slumbering energies into action, and scattered confusion and dismay into the ranks of tho enemy. “The postponement of the Senatorial election las’ winter, had the effpet of making a party question in every county, and although we have not beard Uint'tV'0 wl,olo"tat0- enough is known to satisfy us iiat tile majority cannot ho less than from twenty of»Z'»TY m t^°.n®x* Legislature.

Our enemies are signally routed in all direc. tmns At tho list Congressional Flection, only two Clay men wore elected; hut now, we have mi. questionably elected Allan, Davis, Marshall, Chil « .7°. ,CF/ Tnnipkins, and probably Brents and Breathitt. Last year tho Jackson party claimed a majority in the State Legislature; but now we lave received tho names of sixty-seven of the mom hers returned to the Lower House, and, of lem, forty-eight are for Clay and only nineteen »r Jackson. Of the remaining thirty-throe, we s i.i , in all probability have a largo proportion. Considering what Kentucky has had to contend against, she certainly deserves and will rocoivo the warm and heart-felt congratulations of the Country., Jackson ism will never again lift its head hero—it is but food for worms.” INDIANA. The olcctions ii this State occurred siinultano. ously with those of Kontucky. There wore two Clay candidates for Govornor, Gen. Noble &, Mil. ton Stapp, and one Jackson candidate, Mr. Read. The result is not known, but it is supposed proba ble, that tho division of tho Clay voto, lias elected Mr. Road. Genoral Jonathan McCarty, Rocoiver of Public Moneys at Fort Wayne, has luruod out Judge Tost for Congress, from tho same cause, tho Clay voto being split between Judge Test and Mr Smith. Indiana is no doubt for Clay. Of IT mom hers whoso olcctions to tho Stato Legislature are noticed in tho Political Clarion, 12 are for Clay._ Indiana and Illinois, will, as thoy have always done, unite with Ohio and Kentucky. rr We havo received the 1st No. of tho Penn sylvania Whig, published at Philadelphia, by Sto. phcn Simpson. The Editor’s address to his patrons and the public, takes up the thread of the discourse commenced in his letters recently published, and presents an unanswerable justification for hip renun ciation of Jacksnnism and support of Mr. Clay. “If (says lie) Mr. Clay could foresee [as lie did foresee and repeatedly foretold—Eds. Whig] *11' that wo are now compelled to admit—if he acted then under that same knowledge that wo liavo just arrived at—the total incapacity of Gen. Jackson for the Presidency, the greater is his merit in having voted lor Mr. Adams, and the greater our culpabil ity for having condemned him for that act. The principle is established, that circumstances mitigato, palliate and justify—and lamentable indeed, must bo the instinct and perceptions of that American, who will now fail to acknowledge that his country has been degraded by misrule, and insulted by im becility.” Simpson defends himself conclusively, Against the charge of deserting the Iloro from disappoint ment. On the contrary, he confesses himself un der personal obligations to Jackson, for liia efforts to got his appointment through the fj'-nete, by r.r tually soliciting each Senator to vote for him by lcttor! MR. CALHOUN. Tho Camden (S. G.) Journal decides unhesita tingly, and classos Mr. Calhoun with the nullifyers. Its language is— “The expose of Mr. Calhoun which we have felt ourselves under obligations to lay before our read ers, necessarily excludes almost every thing else from the paper; and even now wo are unable with out leaving out even our advertisements, to publish the whole at once. The entire letter will make about fifteen columns, and the portion which we aro necessitated to leave out this week, shall he given in the next number. Mr. Calhoun it will he perceived, has given himself entirely to Nullifica tion.—Ilut lie has given to that horrible doctrine, no new idea, nor to its advocates any now argu ments, and while lie has thus voluntarily destroyed himself beyond all chanco of redemption, he has not, that we can see, the poor consolation even of having conferred any possible benefit upon the little party of men who believe in the heresy. His name, they have long had, ami it gives thorn there fore, no new sanction—no additional confidence.” The Columbia Telescope (which has risen again) claims for him the samo distinction, but concedes, that by tho avowal, Mr. Calhoun has surrendered all chanco of succoss for the Prcsid ncy. The Richmond Enquirer places the same construction upon his expose, and we fear, is rather pleased at tho suicidal consequences. o are freo to confer that in our opinion, Mr. Calhoun runs rather close to the wind. We hesi tate however, to rank him with tho Hamiltons and Haynes. We deprecate urging such a man, nolens volens, into the ranks of nullification, hy a prccip itato judgment upon his opinions. It is very pos sible for Mr. Calhoun yet to say, “I am not a nulli fy®1'*” and to reconcile the declaration with his expose. The tendency of the tetter is nullifying certainly, but it is not express nullification. (GT The proceedings of the Philadelphia meeting held ii> this city on Friday, were puhlishod in the Compiler of Saturday, where the caption ran ‘‘at a meeting of citizensthey arc published in tho Enquirer of this morning, and the caption runs “at a meeting of the citizens of Richmond,” A-c. Did the Secretary thus vary the copies ho made out for the two papers? Wc are sure he did not. Is it a typographical and unintentional varying? Perhaps it is—nay, most likely it is; but it has nev crthelcss, a little the appearance, and all the effect of a trick, and a not very creditable one. As pub lished intfche Compiler, the phraseology might mis lead—“a meeting of citizens,” might imply 200 as well as 21—bat that was from the imperfection of language—tho expression itself, is unobjectionable in reference to the fact. But, the phraseology as varied in the Enquirer, leaves a definite impression that a"ll the citizens of Richmond attended—that the object wasapprovsd hy the people of Richmond, at least by the majority, by tho bulk. The Editor j to be sure states jn a note, that it war. a thin meet ! ing, but he labors there too, to prove that it was j acddanlially “thin,” that Richmond approves of the Convention. The fact is net so, and he can scarcely j believe it so. Whydid he not say the whole truth at once—that 21 individuals only participated, and I undertook to have a population of 17000 represen | ted in a Convention they generally disapproved? } That would have misled nobody. ___ For me Richmond Wins. No. VII. : Mr. Th: Ritchie. Fir: I have not yet gotten through what I have j to say to you, and my unaffected regard for you. must epenlr my apology for thir. letter in conclusion You nr o now devoted to tlio People's will, and you *jlve ° , 11 your roador? that (Jen. Juckson wni elieated out of his election in 1825, and the pubi c will disregarded, in making choico of Mr. Adams • °!1 tl**s sentiment by adding, that tliougl in 18 k a Gen. Jackson did not obtain a majority ol >e electoral votes, vet, that liis plurality was so great, none could mistake the choice of tlio people: that this plain indication of the public sentiment ought to have been resected, and that Congress was both morally and constitutionally bound to Have chosen Gen. Jackson for the President. 1 cannot mistake your language; it will ho found run ning through your coluuHis in 1*27, *28. Now, sir, how can you reconcile such language with that Meld by you, upon the same occasion, in the begin, nmg ol the year 18251 Then you wore for nailing the colours to the mast's head, and sink with the ship; or, in other words,' though Mr. Crawford ob tained but -11 votes out 2U1, you still urged his elec tion in defiance of tbe tcill of the people, to which you have since pretended so much devotion. In a contest between Gen. Jackson and Mr. Adams alone, you urged, as an unanswerable argument, the plain indication of the people's will in the vote of 1*U; yet, immediately allor that voto, in perfect coutompt of tlio choice ol the people, you continu ed to urge the election of Mr. Crawford, though the people had plainly said that lie was not their choice, by a vote of nearly seven to one against him. Does not such conduct demonstrate vour attachment to party, in total disregard to country? hoes it not involve you in palpable inconsistencies, as disgraceful as it is unjustifiable? With wh-t face, sir, can you declare that the will of the people is your polar star, after having so undisguised!}' declared your contempt for tljat will in 1625 ’ And, now, it these things be so, how do you stand be iore the people as a witnoss? Are you crodible or ; not? Can a jury lielieve in any declaration which vou will make, when your own parly is interested? * «u know the consequences which would re»!llt to a witness, before a Court of Justico, under such circumstances, and you must share the same fate. And, now sir, to what party do you belong? To the Republican Party? Where is it? Scattered to the winds—dissolved into the original elements which composed the Jackson party. The sane spirit of strife has reappeared, that markedthe tines of 1*21: the Calhoun, Crawford, and Jackson nifn. wero then bitter and uncompromising enemies of each other: more discordant materials could not well he assembled together—they had abused and viliifi ed each other, through the presses in every direc tion—after tlio election, however, of 1825, Ibtsc wero tho disappointed parties, and though they hated each other, for various causes, they resolved i to coalesce for the unholy purpose of putting down Mr. Adams' administration, "right or xcron-: they found that though each was too weak to take revenge alone, yet, by uniting their forces, they o ..~.. wujcui, ana in oracr lo make the disgrace of Mr. Adams’ defeat of the deepest die, they agreed to unite on Gen. Jackson, ami divide the spoils after his success. So ftr ail went well with them; a cabinet was formed of tiio samo discordant materials which had before- distin guished them; and upon cool calculation they found that all was not right; explosion of the cabinet proper took place; the Cypher gave tho command, and tho L nit Hod; yes, sir, fl.-d, aftor liavim* do graded and disgraced the country. During all theso scenes, you were tho unflinching friend of every new measure, and of every new incident. If a re port vvas spread that the cabinet was to be changed, you instantly cold your readers that it was a eoali tion he; being blown “sky high” in a few days «f. teruards, you said, you knew it—it was perfectly nght—it proved Jackson’s wisdom. If a lady is dotected in using an unduo influence over the old Hero, you deny it as long as denial will do; when it will no longer do, you come out in strains like these—“scenes at \\ ashington—we arc sorry to see such things—they do the country no good—but they are exaggerated by the coalition,” &.c. &.c. In no part of your languago is condemnation to be found. Well, sir, I rcjicat the question, to what party do you now belong? \ oil know that llthe Republican l arty ’ is broken into its old fragments, though the mm-''*: ?- sy not br the same', a*:'1 it in itrrjSorlant to know where yoji stand. Do you cht*x with the Jackson Van 1’uren Party*, the.Jackson Calhoun Party, the Jackson M’Lcan Party, or the Jackson Jackson Party? 'Pell us, sir, where we may find you, for you arc dear to us all. We wish to know that you are safo, and free from danger. Nothing would distress me more than to know that you wore in harm's tray. IJut perhaps it may not be prudent for y*ou, yet, to speak the party to which you bolong; there may be more changes ero long. Who knows but a Jackson Clay parly may rise up, and as ypu have heretofore turned ta 1 upon all men, and than turned back again, perhaps we may have you on aur side. Remember that you have often rccommcn 3ed an amendment to the Constitution, so as to give to Congress the power of making internal improve ments; your objection to the exercise of the power heretofore according to your own language, being simply because tho Constitution does not authorizo it; and, for that reason, tho power, if exercised, will consolidate the government, operate unequally and unjustly, and break down all the gre^t principles vvhich belong to the government. Now, sir, if these disastrous consequences would grow out of the power, if exercised, why would they not continue to flow, after amendment? Would a few words printed on paper, which should delegate the power, change the-consequcncos which will always spring for the same given cause? Sir, you have seized upon this point, in the spirit of faction, ami you will stick lo it as long as party requires it. Dis guise your motive as you plcnse, you stand convic ted of all principles but those of republican pat riotism. - Inronoluding these loiter*, I l-og leave most re. spect fully to call your attention to an appropriation ol $‘35000, made for finishing and furnishing the east room whilst Mr. Adams was president. This sum Mr. A. might, and I think ought to have used for the objects of its appropriation; and nothing but his plain republican simplicity prevented it.—Have you forgotten the countless untruths which you uttered of Mr. Adams upon that occa sion’ I do not moan your dear friend’s “cast room” letter; I mean your own fabrications long before this celebrated letter made its appearance: that letter was only introduced by you as evidence to prove what you had before said—You had charged Mr. A with principles of aristocracy, and catching at nobi. lity, apeing kingly fashions, &.c. upon the assumed fact, afterward* jrroren by your East Room Correa, pondent, that 31 r. Adams had caused the East Room to be finished, according to the wishes of Con. gross—that this had Keen done in a gorgeous, splendid manner. You knew better at the time sir; you knew that your assertions wc.te false, but you used the thing for effect, and I dare say it had much. Well sir, when your then enrse, and present idol, got possession of the East. Room, what did he do’ Did ho Jet it lie as a lumber room as 3!r. Adams had done? Oh nol This plain man of the mountains, this Tennessee farmer, not tmly uses! the §25,0ft(J appropriated for the room, but smne ! thousands more, and it was soon madn pretty much such a room as your “jEast Room” Correspondent described. And what has been your course since? 3Vhy sir, you not only have not condemned Gen. Jack son for really making all things splendid about, the palace as you had done 3tr. Adams, upon false charges, but you have actually eulogized the Ro man firmness of your idol, for having spent the ^25,000 in preparing a room “fit to entertain the president of a free people"—Sij, I sboujd like to look at you now and then, to behold your trapy face, in order that I might see how far impudence can carry a man in these days of Jacksonism.—Had you exerted all your talents, for the purpose of making yourself ridiculous as an editor, you could not have succeeded better.— There is no inconsistency, into which you have not hern plunged; there is no absurdity which has •scaped you. Of nil the Editors which f have ever known, no one lias placed himself in an attitude southerly reprehensible as you have done. You talk of the republican party, without having any attach ment whatever, for any one of the groat distinguish ing principles of a republican; you talk of grave constitutional questions, without seeming to have looked at the constitution. $ir, it is time, high tim°, that you had given up all pretentions to the character of a leader in poll Itirs; and I gtvw you thin parting advice—farewell -VUMA.

V.'r:;3 To wn: H. ROANK. Esq. Sir: On looking over your pamphlet, a idrossod to the Voters of Hanover, I was not a little surprised with -meeting with tho following dcclurati n:_ “Andrew Jackson is on this subject, (the subject of internal improvement,) p’edg d to the Republicans of America.” “During his Administration, no law can pass for cutting roads or digging canals through the freo and sovereign states of America.” 1 have always considered you too much of a man of intev. fitv and honor, for a moment to believe, that you would knowingly and intentionally impose upon any one, much less your fellow citizens, when you are offering yourself as a candidate to represent them, and to whom you are making an “export” of vour political sentiments, by any statement, not founded iu fact—Permit me therefore, respectfully to cal! your attention to two acts passed the last session of Congress, and approved by Andrew Jackson, March 2d. By referring to one of these acts, you will find that $2G,000 was appropriated for con. tinuing certuin roads in Michigan—§25,000 for defraying expenses incidental to making examina uons ana surveys; ana ^upu,uuw, tor improvin'' the navigation of tho Ohio and Mississippi. Bv tho other it will appctr that £5-13,325 havo been appropriated for the improvement of certain har bors, rivers, and even n ecks. Thus you will per ceive that General Jackson has given his sanction to laws appropriating J,133,000 some hundred dollars to the purposes of internal improvement. A groat part of which was for the improvement of rivers and creeks, if not roads, “through tho free aud sovereign States of America.” That these acts of Congress should have escaped yocr obser vation, i? to mo a matter of no little surprise; and I now call your attention to thorn, under the hope, that acting upon your own principle, “ Amicus Pla to, Amicus Socrates, seiTmagis amicus Veritas,” rendered by- you, “Be the friend of Adams, be the f.iendof Clay, be tho friend of Jackson—but much more than all, be tho friend of truth, you will on the day of the election, boldly and honestly conic out and tell your fellow-citizons, that you were mista ken in saying that “Andrew Jackson is pledged on the subject of internal improvement to the republi cans of America;” and that “during his administra tion no law can pass for cutting roads and digging canals through tho free and sovereign states of A. merlca’” for if lio ever gavo such a pleilgo he has most assuredly violated it. A VOTER OF HANOVER. Extract of a letter to the Editors, dated Knoxvillk, Tonn. Aug. 8th, la3J. A small Sign, but a ^splendid Victory.' Our elections are over; and after a contest, for tiorccness & bitterness, unparalleled in tho annals of even this district, Thomas D. Arnold has ob tained a signal victory over Pryor Rea, backed as lie was by tho power of a Press, the most indcfi. tigable, foul and reckless in the land—still further bucked by the power of Gen. Jackson and Ilu'rii I,. White. Tho lato battle between the Russians and tho Poles certainly did not surpass this struggle in ardor and desperation. The Poles fight for liiierty; whilo the friends of Arnold have been contending, almost for freedom of conscience and of speech, I against a faction, (its central head at Knoxville,} the most, intolerant, unrelenting and despotic that ever disgraced any ora of a free people. Arnold is more obnoxious to the Jackson proscriptionists of this country than any other man excepting Col. John Williams. Wo failed here by small majorities in tho elec tions of our candidates for the State Legislature. Col. Joseph A. Mabry was the candidate for the House of Representatives, and Joseph L. Williams, the son of Judge White’s youngest sister, was the candidate for the Senate/ In this eleeton even, as in ."Mr. Arnold’s, the Judge,although latoly offered the elevated station of Secretary of War, attended personally and vigilantly on the election ground, distributing tickets and even cross examining voters nnd brawling at the ballot box. To see the Judge thus engaged with ardor and bitterness against Jo seph L. Williams, was remarked as a curious and unnatural spectadTc. This unaccountable hostility of the Uncle to the Nephew is to be verv doeply la mented, as it lias driven, for the present, from pub lic employment, a young man of unimpeachable character, and of splendid and unrivalled talents, whose genius, tho’tints oppressed, must rise trium phantly over the malignant opposition of parly, and assert that station in society to which itso eminent ly entitles its possessor.

BOIClOUR r.—Tho election lor this county commenced on Monday Inst, and tlio polls were kept open at the Court-Houso and at all tho precincts ‘except Salem) ’till \\ ednesday evening. Notwithstanding the day was very unfavorable, an unusually largo number of voters attended on Monday. Tlio people were addressed by tlio can didates tor tlio Legislature, each disclosing fully his views of tho important subjects to which tho attention of that body would bo directed. Mr. Craig very briefly solicited tho suffrages of the people, and hoped, as his opponent had with drawn, that no feeling of preference for him should now induce them to withhold their yotes from him se 1. .Mr. .Miller followed, giving his inducements for offering and his reasons and motives for now declining a farther canvass for Congress.— Ho commented with severity, and indulged t hrough out his whole address, most liberally, his fondness lor cool, cutting sarcasm, upon tho political course of his opponent, Air. Craig replied, evidently much excited, endeavoring to explain away the ob jections urged against him ar,d which he perceived had made a deep impression upon the audience. Air. Alillor again presented himself, and regretted that the calm review which he was compelled, in some measure, to take of Mr. Craig’s course, should discompose that gentleman,—that lie was perfectly d:Rpas.sionr.ts himself and was sorry ho could not help -Mr. Craig being otherwise. The whole dis cussion was listened to with profound attention and the most intense interest. When tho discus sion closed liiero seemed to be but one impression through the vast arowd: a condemnation of Air. Craig’s course, which be could in no wise relievo Iroin the charge of inconsistency every where im puted to it, and so vividly portrayed hv Air. Alillor, —and deep regret that it was' too "lato for that gentleman to retract his determination to decline. When tlio polls were opened, Air. Aliller finding that his friends still determined to rim him, begged if he had any influence with then: that they should not vote for him—that lie was no way before them —that he bad taken pains to bo withdrawn at all the precincts, and he wished the same course adop ted licre. We have not heard a doubt oxprossed that Mr. Aliiler’s majority would have been between 8 and 909, probably more. This county can give 1200 votes, and it lias never, probably, been so dis. posed to exert itself before for any individual. In the vote of Air. Craig will be found a iarge portion of Air Alillcr’s warmest political friends. For Congress: Robert Craig, Mo opposition. For the Le-.isi.axit.e: (-ol. Win. Anderson * 495, Col. Georgo W.

It is hoped that some of the fruits ol Uii-se labours will be reudyto be put into the band.*, oi tho stodents, at the session ensuing li e nexr. For tho present, llio Texts Books which will bo employed, and which students will be re* quired to provide themselves with, will be Black s tone's Commentaries, (Chilly’s edition will bo preferred and is tho cheap -si,) Cruise’s Digest (tho Now York edition of 1827, the best,) Tuck* < r’s Commentaries, and Kent’s Commentaries. The exercises will be daily, during the session. Radi day, portions of the Knghf.h text book*, with apposite parts of the American Commenta ries, will bo marked nut for the exercises of the students on the ensuing day; when they will be rigidly examined upon the matter which has been thus assigned lor their studies—and in the course ofthe examination, such additional reL ereners, ojtd explanations will be supplied, as will best illustrate the subject in band. It is believed, that the term wil] not be too short, to review- all the subjects, in Blacketone and Cruise, that tray be applicable to our own Country, with the corresponding Commentaries of I ticker and Kent—provided the assiduity of the student shall correspond in any degree with the zeal of the Professor. The exercises, with wli ch the students will bn tasked, will not much exceed the exercises, which in another situation, l was in the habit of appointing for the class, when the attention rf many Bfits members was wont to be divided between the Law and one or more studies besides.—The p-fice of instruc* non will be $60 the session, to be paid in cash before the student can be admitted to tho school. Accommodations may be had in very genteel, private boarding houses, as well ns at the Ta verns, upon very reasonable terms—say from $io to $12 60 per month, exclusive only of fuel and washing—which may be procured for a ve. ry moderate price. The whole expence of liv ing. the most comfortable that could be e*cpect, led or asked, will probably be less than $75 tho session.
