J .Mr. Editor: Sir, The Honorable James J. McKay, of North Carolina, I believe, has been a representative in Congress since 1 831; and although ha has been esteemed as sound a man as any in that body, and almost all the time been placed at the head of some impor tant Committee, he has very rarely ever taken part in debate. He is now Chairman of the Committee on the Post Office and Post Roads, and has an arduous task to peiform as such, but discharges his duty with ability and strict ' integrity to all parties cencerned to the state of the finances of the Government, and mail facilities to the people. General McKay has been during his whole term of membership, a staunch supporter of Democratic principles, yet, he has not, I will venture to say, incurred the displeasure of a single political opponent in the House. His mild, dignified, unwavering course, has gain ed him many friends and influence iu the body of which hs has the honor to be a mem ber; and as he is well known to be a man possessing a high order of talent, it has often been remarked with amazement that he did not take rank in the lead of able debaters. In deed I have been astonished myself at his holding back so long, aud would have been quite at a loss ts know why he had done so, had I not had some little insight into his char acter; that he is an unassuming man, and none but the more forward members can scarcely ever get the floor on an important occasion to make a speech in that largo and disorderly body. Were your State not alrea dy so ably and faithfully represented in the more quiet and orderly wing of the Capitol, I Would say no man was better fitted for a seat in that dignified body, than General Mc Kay, and that the State would do well to place him there in turn. The General, however, notwithstanding the great rush for the floor to make "-log cabin" speeches, been able to obtain it, and unlike the Harrison orators, he spoke on the subject before the House; the civil and diplomatic appropriation bill, and as I have been told by several gentlemen, made one of the most able speeches that has been delivered this session; and my reason for saying no more about it is, because I did not hear it, and be lieve from what I heard of it, it will have an extensive circulation when published, and will be able to say more for itself thau I could possibly say for it. You, perhaps, have never seen such an ef fort as is making by the Whig members to bring in old Harrison; they stop short of no thing. They have formed a committee of eight members, composed of Southern r cde ralists, Northern Abolitionists, and Hartford Conventionists, which they have seen proper to style "Executive Committee,'" by way of giving their manufactured falsehoods an otli cial caste to the people and thereby deceive the unsuspecting into a belief of what they send out. You of the South had better keep a sharp look out against the numerous trick eries that are going on to endeavor to entrap you, or the northern fanatics will have a fair and full drag at you yet; you know well that is what they are after, and I can say to you it is what many of them now believe aud ex pect will be the case. But only do your duty and there is nothing to fear. From the Washington (N. C.) Republican. The Passage of Arms. Yesterday, (Monday) the Republican candidate for Governor, Judge Saunders, and his federal com petitor, J. M. Morehead, addressed the public at : i . ji j . 1 i - .i - . c . ue AictDoaisi viiurcu minis town, oonie persons say that they can scaicely conceive any thing more ridiculous than competing candidates lor the chair of State becoming popular prize-fighters. Upon this point we shall not now pause to express our opinion. We are satisfied with the part icular ro suilt. The exercises we reconinic nd at I o'clock by a speech from Judge. Saunders. We have not time to notice, or space to pub'ish, the subMar.ee of his argument, or even to reenpitnl ate tin head.-?, lie is well known to the people of North Carolina, in the several capacities of a statesman in the lejris'utive councis of the country, an attorney at the bar f ju-tice, and a Juuc on its bench. 1 bev can lorm a just idea of his argument and his manner when we add, that those most familiar w ith his previous reputation and performances, think that on this oc casion he exceeded himself. The argument seemed to us to be open, candid, and fair; his facts indis putable; his manner courteous, gentlemanly and eloquent, occasionally rising to impassioned elo quence: and not unfre qucnily he indulged in bitter invective, general and personal, the severity of which was obviously mitigated by Ins good nature, and pity for bis opponent, lie spoke aboot two hou;s. We observed Mr. Morehaed during the re marks of Judge Saunders, but did not perceive the slightest effect upon his countenance. We should have mentioned that the p-ople, having bestowed ra ther uproariou3 applauses on Jud,e Saunders in the early part of his speech, were admonished, that it was not proper in a Church. The countenance be come the only index of opinion and feeling, and we observed the faces of the people gcn rally beaming with joyous expression at his flights, and many Whii; wights put on their most lachrymous looks. But there is an end to all things, and so there was to the torture of the Federal "Whigs. Mr. More head rose in an ungainly and embarrassed matin r. The Whiga, trusting to ihe representation of their presses, had formed a very high opinion of the ora toric!e powers of their candidate. They were doomed to a signal mortification less overwhelm ing, however, because his appearance had in some measure, corrected their previous impressions. They looked for an Hyperion and they saw a Satyr. He commenced by replying, not to Judge Saun ders, but to US. We shall notice that matter at length in our next number, and expose his mean prevarications, and therefore pass it over for the present. Ha replied also, to the articles which have appeared in our paper, over the signature cf '.'Hyde," concerning the draining of Mattamuskeet Lake, which the author will no doubt, notice. We will only remark in passing, that his reason fir voting against that measure, in 1826, is his allegation that, the intention of tha Bill was to benefit private in dividuals at the expense of the State that a per sonal bonus was hidden under a public appropria tion. He will, no doubt, be answered sufficiently upon this point. So far, the great Federal Goliah excited only disgust. He was reminded by cough ing and heinminw to seek new topics: he did "bo. He then entered into a disingenuous and elaborate defence of his course, in having been a supporter of General Jackson, and even an Elector on the Jackson and Van Buren ticket, and his present po sition by the side of John GLuincy Adams and Clay, Webster and Harrison. ' Let it be recollected that John M. Morehead voted for Jackson, and Van Buren after the Proclamation and the removal of the deposites. Such tergiversation is outrageous. His defence was miserably lame, and we very much regret that we cannot now examine it in detail. He next attacked the present administration on the subject of the public expenditures. He did not specify one single item -of improper expenditure, but dealt in general and enormous charges. He even, in his ignorance, or his malice, misstated the gross amount. He stated that the federal expendi ture for the first three years of Mr. Van Buren's ad-, ministration was about 37,000,000 dollars annually, exclusive, &c. This is untrue and was. so demonstrated after wards. He then made some remarks upon the sub ject of Harrison and Glory, and Abolition, which are too ftale and trashy to be noticed even in this hasty editorial. His style of remark in all this was low and ad eaptandum. He now became more coarse and blackgurd in his remarks, and personally assailed his competitor, on account of his numerous public services. He concluded after about three hour's talk, amid the applause of the boys and free negroes and the disgust cf the more decent part of his fiiends. Jude Saunders replied, and stop by step, de molished the few points in his speech, which he intended (or arguments, and returned his personal assaults with compound interest. The night put an end to the contest. Mr. Alorchead concluded in a very few words, which he begged the people to fetop ai.d hear. Mr. Morehead repeatedly informed the people that he had been a very poor tna", but was now rich. He had no doubt, he said, as many negroes as any man of the same age in the house, whose be Sinainj was so humble. We belii vc no man who heard Mr. Morehead yesterday wil doubt his dec laration that his earlier associations were humble; for it is very clear that at present, to the art and edu cation of a lawyer, he adds the manners and habits of speech of the rowdy. He assured the people that he had very little doubt of his election, an opin ion formed upon his own good opinion of himself. He more than once exhibited the most disgusting egotism. He seems to have a monomania on the subject of Toby Watkins as he elegantly phrased it. This pronunciation ot the name Tobias was one of his many attempts at wit which have given him tins name of the funny candidate. "We will give one more witieisni of the gentleman: replying to our correspondent "Hyde," he said that "the people of Hyde had Index too thick to be gulled," &c. Verily, a second Joe Miller hath appeared! Cur space is out. Correspondence of the Eos-ton Morning Post. Washington, April. 1S40. Harrison's I'ovcrty. - Honorable poverty, the ie3ult of private sacrifices to public good or of unmerited mis fortune, is a just claim to the respect of the people. A virtuous man struggling with ad verse fortune, is one of the noblest exhibitions of moral excellence, but the attempt to hold up a man, as deserving this high considera tion, who has been nursed in the lap of luxury, lived in wealth all his days and drawn his thousands annually from the public purse, is an insult to the common understanding, that will raise an honest indignation in the breast of every man who earns his bread by his own hands. : The whigs, who despise tho people too much ever to appeal to their understandings, and who treat them as foreign despots their wretched populace, who are to be amused like children, in order to be kept quiet when they are getting too strong, are placing their strong est hopes of success in holding up Harrison as a poor man; who has all his life subsisted on roots, corn bread, and hard cider, lived in a log house and earned his food by tho sweat of his brow. Hence their wretched rows of hard cider drinking, their carousals in barns, their roistering songs, and -their log cabins in lithograph, sent over the Union under the franks of whig members of Congress. These whigs really suppose that the people are chil dren to be tricked out of their votes by play things, and one of the chief public services now performed by whig members of Congress, is sending about the wretched caricatures, which they rely on as their arguments to ap peal to the people in behalf of Harrison. I had no conception of the extent to which this hilly is carried by whig members of Congress. I did not suppose it possible that in this coun try men of education and standing could be found who believed that the mass of the peo ple were no better than brutes, and could on ly be reached through their animal senses, let such is the fact, and men who are not deficient in intellect are plenty here who rely more upon hard cider and log cabin argu ments for Harrison, than upon all other ap peals to the voters. A paper has just been started in lialtimore, called "The Tog Cabin Advocate' A leading whig in this city seri ously said to me the other day, when " I told him how vainly he counted on the supposed popularity of his candidate, 'Ah, you have no idea what an effect this haul cider is having.' Thus it is that the leaders of a party, who al ways despised the people, and who would de prive them of suffrage in a moment, if they could do it, carry out their contempt for the masses, by plying them with hard cider, as the best argument to get their votes! In the same way, they talk to the people about Harrison's poverty, and fancy they can gull them by holding him up as one of them selves, under the pretext that he lives in a hovel and earns his daily bread by following the plough! But in point of fact so far from being poor and living in log cabins, Harrison has always had a princely income, and lives in an ele gant mansion. His "log cabin" is a large white framed house, one hundred aud eighty feet front, with spacious outbuildings, & in the midst of one of the richest farms in Ohio, extending for miles along the river. This princely estate came to Harrison, not by the sweat of his brow, but by the purse of his wife, the daughter of John Cleves Symmes, one of the richest land owners in Ohio. He gave Harrison this estate, and when he 'mar ried set him up with $10,( 00 ready money in Bank, to draw on as he liked. From his infancy he was nursed in the lap of luxury, in one of the wealthiest families in Virginia, and himself, and his sons and his sons in law, have always fattened upon pub lic emoluments and the spoils of office. He is at this moment, and has been for years, the sinecure Clerk of the Hamilton County Court, yielding fees varying from $10,000 to 6,000 per annum, and the duties are performed for him by a Mr. Snyder, for about $500 per annum. JVo man in this country has done less and been paid more, by the public as an office holder, than William H. Harrison, the pre tended log cabin, poverty candidate. Official documents in the departments at Washington, show that from 1799 to 1829, a period, of thirty years, this poor man received from the public Treasury of the United States, the sum of SEVENTY FOUR THOU SAND AND FIFTY ONE DOLLARS, which is at the rate of a salary of two thou sandour hundred and sixty eight dollars per annum, for THIRTY YEARS! And of this sum, $22,439 46 was paid to him in 1828 and a part of 1829, for a trip to South America. During his whole life, Harrison has not been placed in any public position requiring an expensive'style of living; and if, he is, as the whigs pretend, now poor, he must have been a profligate spendthrift, and is totally incapable of managing the public concerns, if he has squandered all these means, in his private affairs. 1 believe he has held the office of County Clerk for ten years, which, at only $5000 a year, allowing pay for his substitute, is $50,000 more making ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS he has cribbed of the public money, in forty years! of his life. This is at the rate of $3000 per annum, for forty years, besides the princely fortune his wife brought him! He is now seventy two years of age, and so sup peranuated as to be put under the charge of a committee to receive and answer his letters for him, for feai he should expose himself, if left to his own imbecility of mind. He was, when in prime, a man of some ability, but is now, by age aud disuse, rendered so nearly imbecile that his best friends dare not trust him to answer a letter for the public eyes. Taking him from the age of twenty one to seventy two, and we find that in fifty one years of his life, he has received from the pub lic purse pay at the average rate of TWO THOUSAND FOUR HUN DllED AND FIFTY ONE DOLLAKS PER AN NUM! And this is the poor man, who lives in a log cabin, and gets his bread by the sveat of his brow! Was there ever a more insolent attempt to humbug the people? NORTH-CAROLINIAN.

It is a hard matter to ti II, whether hard times or "hard cider" can be used by the "Ioj cabin" folks, tolhc.jrrcatestadvanta.ee, when they wish to get into oliice.

It is in the bands of almost every Harri son man in town and country. To shew how this sheet proves the low esti mate which the Federalists place upon the good sense of the people, let the follow! no- s.imnb. i ... . - fs r truth as contained in this respectable own of uie tiarnson taction suffice. On its first page is a coarse print, repiesentinir "a loo- r.ahlr." ,;th Harrison and an old soldier standing in front of it, and under this print are these words: "The above represents the veteran Harrison as he now lives, a private citizen, in the act of welcoming an old soldier into his cabin." We ask the editor of the Observer, if this is not a deliberate falsehood, circulated in this town and its vicinity, by the friends of Harri rison, to cheat the people? We ask him if General Harrison does not now live in a large two story frame house, and not in a "loo cab in?" If the Observer does not answer these ques tions, it will be an admission that his nnrtr . daily circulating a gross falsehood, for political What trick will not a desperate faction adopt, in their longing after "(he spoils of office?" Can intelligent farmers be duped by such tom foolery? Certainly not. "To blame the Government for everything which it does, and for every thing- which it does not do without at the same time ever committing themselves to any definite declara tion of what it ought or ought not to have done, m the arduous task of our Tory cotemp&ra. ries." London Globe, March 31. Does not this extract Irom a British paper, draw to the life, a picture of the opposition in this country? When we called the federalists "British Whigs" some time ago, it was in allu sion to their subserviency to the British Banking System. But who can see any difference, between our federal opposition party in this country, and the alnive picture of "British Tories?" What say you, my temperate adversaries who are bo fond of calling hard names, shall we be justifiable in calling your parly "British Tories?" What suit of a party is that, for which no ohc name can he found, by themselves or others, to designate them in their constant changes? They are Bank men and not Bank men. They are Federalists and not Federalists. They are Abolitionists and not Abolitionists. They are Tariff men and not Tarilfmen. They are out and out, non-committal men on all subjects; and hence, Harrison will not answer on any of these subjects, when the people ask him lor his opin ions. The London Globe draws their portraits; and if they are not ''British Tories" no one can see the distinction between them and the picture drawn at the head of this article. Tlic Viii;ilii.-v JIc-cliousa We give below tiie Globe's statement of the returns from the Virginia elections tor members of Assembly. It. will bo borne in mind, that last j ear, parties were so nearly tied in the Leg islature, as to be unable to elect a Senator. Voi if two contested seats are decided in our favor, there will be a lie in both Houses. Rives' drsertioii with filch of his Conservative (local bank friends) as be could carry with him, has enabled the Federal party to hold up their heads a little lotiirer in old Virginia, as Judge While's desertion did, lor a time in Tennessee, and Taliinadge's desertion in New York. Take away the Federal strength gained by these de serters in New York anil Virginia, Tallinn. Ige and Rives, and the Federal Whigery would be without the slightest hope. lint these turncoats from the ranks of the Republican partv, can no more make New York and Virginia Democrats foi low at their tails into the ranks ot the enemy, than White could in Tennessee. Bv next No vember, "Rives' laW in Virginia, will be short as the comet's, when it takes its flight to regions bevond our vision. But, as to the glorious old North State, the Federalists Know, that we have no deserter here to take otTa batch of "conservative" mutineers to the enemy's camp. We are sound to the core, ami act with one impulse; our friends of the Democracy match in unbroken, undivided phalanx to the polls, and if Virginia even sutler the disgrace ol a Federal victory, North Caro lina will not be found in her wake. She has been too true to her principles, to let the Feder alists, by stealing the 7iame from her Democracy, hope to cheat her out ofa glorious Republican victory in August, as well as November next iVo!i the Globe. Virginia Kleclions We have now heard from all the counties in Virginia except three, sending two dele gates. One of them (Scott county in Jittle Tennessee) has already given a large Demo cratic majority. There is then no doubt but the result, as stated below, is as favourable as can be expected bv the Opposition. The' Senate is equally divided. Alter all the exultation on the part of the Federalists about the triumph in Viiginia, let us scan it, and see with how much reason they rejoice. 1. It will be observed that tho Democrats have a clear gain of one member in the House of Delegates. 2. The Federalists carried one of their delegates in Buckingham county by the cas ting vote of the sheriff tho other by two ma jority. This election is contested for fraudu lent votes polled by the Federalists, and tljre is scarcely a doubt but the Democratic can didates are entitled to their seats. Ihe re versalofthis return, and giving effect to the polls as closed in Caroline, would make it a tie in the House, as well as the Spatc giving the Opposition the member from Wythe, who is pledged to vote for Senators as his constituents ot that Democratic county may vote in the Presidential election in the fall. Kven supposing then the election in Buck ingham to be fair and irreversible, the V cderal party can only boast of the power to carry Mr. Hives by a majority of the popular votes. 3. It is worthy of remark, that, besides Buckingham, Hanover, Spottsylvania, and Powhattan, which we have set down to the Federalists in our table, are all contested. The resident majority of the legal votes in all those counties is unquestionable on the side of the Administration. The Federal news papers cannot with decency deny it. All these counties were carried by votes from Richmond. It is believed that more than a hundred citizens of Richmond voted in virtue of deeds to land and stocks in the surround ing counties. Some individuals voted, we are assured, as many as five times. Where a man is bona fide owner of lands in several counties, of the value of $25, he is entitled to vote in the several counties. But where a fictitious title is made by deed to constitute such right to vote, it is a fraud. It was in this way that many of the Federal voters were manufactured, to carry the counties referred to, that a majority of 56 votes, in the aggre gate, gives the counties of Hanover, Spotts ylvania, and Pendleton, to the Whigs. There are two other counties in striking distance of Richmond, which were carried by very meagre majorities Charlotte hv 6. and Prince Edward by 16 votes; but wjj have not o t o l heard of frauds having been committed there. Persons residing in Richmond have a right, under the Constitution of Virginia, to vote in every county in the State, in which they own land. This year. Last year. Fed. Dem. Fed. Dcm.

We have heard the result of the vote in Caroline and Wythe couuties, but do not know how to place them in our table. The following have been stated to us as facts, in relation to them: In Caroline, (represented in the last House of Delegates by a Federalist,) it was a tie when the polls were closed and certified. Afterwards, two persons were permitted to vote for the Federal candidate. The sheriff who is a Democrat, would have voted for the Democratic candidate, and elected him, if the polls had not been re-opened. As it is, he refuses to return either candidate. In Wythe, A. S. Fulton, (Fed.) elected by 18 majority, under a pledge to vote for Demo cratic Senators, it the county goes for the Democrats in the fall. This county has al ways given a Democratic majority at Presi dential elections. Some friend of the Observer thinks we were not particular enough in dates, last week, as to the time when Harrison resigned, and gave place to Andrew Jackson, during" the last war. We settle that question by the following ex tracts from the "Log Cabin Advocate." "In 1814, he" (Harrison) "was appointed by Madison one of the Commissioners to treat with the Indians, and in the same year, with his col leagues, Governor Shelby and General Cass. concluded the celebrated treaty of Greenville." "In 1815, he was again appointed such Com missioner, with General McArthur and Mr. Graham, and negotiated a treaty at Detroit." And we will only remark, that, while Harri son was making these treaties, Jackson was fighting the Indians at the Horse-Shoe, and the British at New Orleans. Will the Observer tell us why Harrison resigned before the war was ended? Extract of a letter from a correspondo, i Mobile, dated April 29ih, 1840.
