BALTIMORE PIANO FORTE
VERY IMPORTANT INVENTION.
It has long been a question among teachers and amateurs
of music, as to the most suitable touch for a Piano Forte.
Some at this time contend for a light touch, while others,
with equal ability, advocate the heavy. This question ia
now nermanenUy settled. WISE Jc BROTHER have in
vented a contrivance by which the same Instrument may
be instantly set to any required touch,' by the turning a
single acrew. varying, if necessary, three hundred and sixty-five
differences. The advantages of this are evident,
both to teachers and amateurs, as lessons may be practised
on the heavy, and exhibitedkm the lighter touch, to suit ex
actly any physical capacity which is agreeable to fact and
progressive lessons. The contrivance is simple, and may
be applied to any common Piano. We invite the moat
critical investigation. Patent is about to be taken for the
improvement. ..- . ; . .

Ultra Whig a Vying I rom the start and a
Whig to the end a Whig inside and out
side, upside and downside, front side and
backside from stem, to stern from head
to foot- here and there and everywhere
now, to-day . and to-morrow and forever
more; and I want to ask if you are in favor
of any man for President, that is not as
great a Whig as I am? Cries q"No!
No! No! No! -Certainly notl'V
I tell you, gentlemen, that you cannot
find one real, true, genuine, unadulterat
ed, whole-hog, ultra Whig in the broad li
mits of these. United States who will not
say that he prefers Henry Clay to any
man that lives, or ever will live, for the
Presidency : but still there are men who
go for Taylor, because as they say he is
the most . available (laughter.) iow 1
say it, gentlemen, without the fear of con
tradiction, and I say it boldly, mat inere
never was a man born in this world of ours
who came within fifteen hundred roils of
being as popular a mam as Henry Clay.
Idety you to bring or mention a inanuving
or dead, who was, in the space of his whole
life, ever kissed as many times as Henry
Clay has been the last two months. Did
Gen. Taylor ever get as many kisses?
(Cries of "No! No! No! certainly not!
not half as many.'
Now, gentlemem, I can prove to you
that Henry Clay can be elected.' In the
hrst place, he was elected the' last tune,
but the votes were not counted right. In
hp cprnnil rlar. he . would have tried it
rieht ' over - asain. Gentlemen, did you
ever wrestle when your were boys? It so.
when you were thrown, ciiu you noi Know
that it you could try ungni over again, you
could lick your opponent. Hence 1 infer
- miWt a . .
if Henry Clay can contend with a L.oco
foco opponent again, he will certainly
throw him iuoderat demonstrandum.
I Cries of" Yes! Yea! Yes! no doubt of it!")
Again, to prove. his popularity, 1 oft'er
you the following facts. Do not the Whigs,
atall their meetings, always hurrah for
Henry Clay? And besides can you men
tion but two papers, from Maine to New
Orleans, that have within the last two
months advocated his nomination ? - The
papers to .which I refer are the N. Y. Ex
press, and the other, the paper edited by
my good abolition friend, Horace Greeley,
who sits behind me in those old boots.
(Thereupon Horace winked whereupon
the audience gave him three cheers bang
just six cheers less than the young whigs oj
New York gave Martin Van JJurcn on a
save Martin ran JSuren on a
like occasion and the same night.)
The orator then' proceeded.) Gentle
men, I declared to you that Henry Clay
is the most available man, and not only
the most available man. He must and
he shall be nominated. Morse's Tele
graph cannot stop it. Locofoco thunder
and false lightning cannot cheat him out of
it. He shall be nominated and he can be
Gentlemen, 1 have been too long on pub
lic and private stumps not to know that my
statistics are not thought much of; but
relying on your indulgence, I will on this
occasion read a few from this paper.
Henry Clay at the last election received
more than 500,000 votes, which is more
than five times as many as Gen. Washing
ton ever received, and the latter was elect
ed unanimously. What do you think of
that, gentlemen? Gen. Taylor cannot
get anything like as many votes as Henry
Clay could obtain. He would not gain
over any of the Southern States, and he
would lose nearly all of the Nothern States.
Can anything be plainer than that Clay
would come in with a most tremendous
majority? Besides, gentlemen, could not
we nominate Gen. Scott, who has gained
so muchgloryiu this abominable war, for
Vice President, and with Henry Clay,
who gained so much glory by opposing it,
for President, should we not be sure in
that case to get the votes of both the War
and Peace men, and thus come off most tri
umphant. Gentlemen, here I stand and alwavs
will stand advocating the principles of the
Whig party. If all the un terrified Loco
locos in the universe should come against
me, still I would stand where I am the
Great Whig champion advocating the
everlasting principles of the Great Whig
party. 1 have done it at home; I have
done it here; I have done it every where.
As long as the least breath remains in this
body, so long may every man and woman
and child of this nation and the world
know that I am Kettle M Potts a Whig
