Daily Free Press.
We shall comnience, to-morrow, tlio publica
tion of a Daily paper, In conformity w ith the in
tentluils set forth in the 1'iospeclns wo issued
(oiiie weeks since. As therein proposed, the
1 tiily I'rec Press will bo issued cicry anting.
Our citizens will, therefore, possess the advan
tage (should it prove to ho one) of a Daily morn
ing and evening paper; an arrangement which
will certainly tend lo keep them quite up with
the marcli of events, both at home and abroad.
The terms of subscription, as heretofore an
nounced, will be 8 per annum, ijj-l for three
months, and 37!, cents per month ; invariably
in advance. The paper will be somewhat larg
er than tlio Daily Sentinel, and wc may take
occasion to say that the price at which it is af
forded Is to small as to preclude the expectation
of jn-eftt, without such patronage as appears, at
rwscnt at least, little likely to be bestowed upon
the, enterprise.
I'. S. Since the above was wiitlctl, vtc no
trco that our friend of tlio Sentiwl announces
hi intention to change hi hour of publication,
and to make his, alo, an evening paper. Ill's
success, wo are glad to learn, has been so ou
coun'ginj;,'that he will enlarge the Daily Senti

Hut while llnssvstem ofoxchaliffcs mav bo recall

production iu legislation, literature, science and the

that our own comparatively new country, and especi
ally lhe small interior Slale of Vermont, can posse.
nothing worthy to be. ollereil in exchange for the splen
did tonic of l'urnpe. It i very true that the publica
tions in Vermont have been lew iu numlier, small in
size, and co'ire and rude iu fabric , but still they serve
well to illuslrate lhe condition ofa pcoplo entcringnp.
on the experiment of sell goverciucut, and, beneath an
unpoh-lied exterior, they embody principle which,
properly dillused, might serve to n novate the decayed
government of the old world, nnd, accompanied by
literature, sctiico nnd the nrl-, and, especially, by the
elevating power ol Christianity, might setve to raise
ihc barbarous and savage hordes ol both hemispheres
lrom Iheir low degradation, to the coudi lain of well
organized, cnhghieiicd and happy communities.
Among thes'tntcsol the American Union, Vermont
i peculiar in her origin and early history. All the
other original .State had a prcvinu colonial orgnii
7ation. Hut imt so w ith Vermont. 'The inlnluiant,
located upon her lertile s.iil, were collected here lrom

Their organization, limit r committees nt sate ly, was
at lirst rude nnd imperlcct ; but it delects were soon
corrected, and, a early a lTTtt, Vermont was a sell

lrom that lime nil she joined lhe American Union, in

Slate, uncontrolled and unawed by any oilier power

Mr. Ci.av on Saturday afternoon visited
irratiiied tilth th. inniriiitlecnt work, lie re
turned to tho City, and was entertained in an
elegant and delightful dinner by J, 1'iiimin
I'ikcmx, Esq. after which ho attended tlioiver
fonuauce of tho Oratorio of tho "creation," by
tho Sacred Music Society. Ho was there in licit
moro tho object of attention to tho audience, than
tho music, and iu tho courso of the evening
briclly and felicitously replied to an address
from tho ladles of tho Society.
Yesterday morning Mr. Clay attended St,
llartholomuvv's Church with his Honor tlio May
or, where an unusually largo congrei'ation
vvero assembled.. On the way thither, wo un.
deretaud, lie was met by a large numlwr of Irish
men, who thus sought the opportunity of quietly
expressing to him tho warm feelings which his
ellurts in behalf of Ireland have roused in tlio
breasts of all her sons,
This morning, at nine, Mr. Clay leaves us on
his way homeward ; lie w ill stop at Newark for
about nn hour, to exchange greetings with liia
fellow citizens of that place, and will reach
Philadelphia, where ho had an imperative en
gagement, at I iu the afternoon. After spending
a day there privately, ho will go homo hy way of
Mr. Ct-AY has been tvith us now for five days,
and through the whole time, has received such
tokens of deep respect and enthusiastic attach
ment as no man but himself could havo elicited.
We now see how firmly he stands in the affec
tions not of a few persons or of any particular
class, but of the whole People. If there wcro
any doubt before, the fact is now undeniable,
that no man lives who is so truly beloved ami
trifled by the people of this City as 1IBNRY
CLAY A'. V. Tribune of the 13A.
For the Free Press.
I am not aware that at any time previous ha there
been so little dicusion in the public papers as it re
spects a candidate for President, as has been since tho
lnt Presidential election, I!ut as the time, of election
is fast approaching, it seems that il it is examined in
a right spirit, a to who shall be lhe Standard Hearer,
it cannot do any harm.
Among so many good, true and capable Whig, it
cannot be supposed that all will bo united on any one
as their first choice. It apiear very evident that tho
first choice of a vast majority of the Whigs of tho
Union is Henry Ci.av, and a large majoriiy of the re
mainder would prefer him to any living man, could
nicy nut Know that ho would be elected, or be the
mot arailahle candidate. Hut his having had so
many unsuccessful trial, lliey have their doubts id-mt
trying him ngain. 'Tin i, to Is- ,irc, an objection
and I propose to examine the same, and let a candid
public judge of the facts. After the niccewful tcnui
nation of the Ian war with treat llritain, the Demo
cratio and Federal panic, became so farainalg.nnated
as to elect Jatne, .Monroe to the Presidency by a vote
of 193 to . ll lor Itufu King, and on his second rice
1,0,,, 1,1 ISJI. there wn only one vote, ogamst him,
and lint for John Q. Adams, rlu ,, eU.clor m Ncw
Iloinpslnre. At the next election, in IMI, there were
four Democratic candidate 111 the Held, viz. Win. II.
Crawford, who had been nominated by Congres
sional caucus, John Q. Adams, Andrew Jatkson, and
Henry Clay, who was the youngest, and aluit 17
year o age, many year voungcr than anyone who
Ind been elevated to that high office. 'The latter
had lieen nominated by Ix-gi.laturcs and Conventions
of the people. 'The electoral vote were Ibr Jack.on
0J, Adam 81, Crawford II, and Clay 37; and ns a
choice must be made from one of the time highest
candidates, Clay was excluded in il. Hon,e and
John Q Adams was elected. 'The second tune Mr
Clay was a candidate was in lllti, nnd run a -aiust
President Jackson al his second election Jackson
had bcalen Adams on In first diction, 111 !. ,y
ITS to M. In consequence ol Jackson's ninotal of
the deposit from the II ink of the United States, and
other high handed measures, he had lost some of hi
lonner warm supporters, and many werchd to Ih-Ih-vcs
that the country would not approve of his dome.'.
.Mr. Clay reluctantly coii-ntcd that his name might
be ued 111 oppo-iiion to the re-election of Cicn. Jack
son, it In Iricud were of opinion that it would be of
any use so to do. The result every one knows was
that Jackson was re-elected by an increased majority.
In IS 1 1 .Mr. Clay was unanimou-lv nominated, forth..

.National Convention j and had it not been that gios
frauds were committed by our opjneim, he would
now be the occupnnlofthe White IIous,; at Washing,
