just because he will not rush miully into a measure
which would involve us in a war, nnd disgrace us
in the eyes of the whole universe, fur the sake of
building up the system of American slavery? J. p.
"And if, and if." Two or three weeks since
the Watchman promptly defended the Hon. Win.
P. Briggs against a "locofoco" charge of delin
quency in the public service. A few days after,
upon Mr. Briggs making public the reasons why
he could no longer accompany the whigs in their
hypocritical course, the Watchman comes out and
denounces him as having been " a noisy member
of the whig party," hands him over to the Liberty
Tarty as " the very place for disappointed dema
gogues and unfortunate office seekers," and adds,
" of all such who leave the whig ranks, we say
heartily, it is a good riddance of troublesome cus
tomers!" Now it makes all the difference in the
world who owns the bull and who the ox, if you
never noticed it! We trust friend Biiggs will yet,
unless the fire of his eloquence and his love of lib
rty have become greatly quenched, prove a 'troub
lesome customer' to ihe pro-slavery ivhigs. j. p.
For the Freeman.
There's nane ever feared that tlio truth should be heard,
Sae him wham (he truth wad indict."
The organ of the Clay Club I beg pardon the
Young Mens' Whig Club announces in reference
to the meetings, that " the string of the latch is
never pulled in to those of all parties who wish to
hear the discussions of the Club." That is, gen
tlemen, we grant you license to come in and hear
ldl manner of misrepresentations of your princi
ples and measures, doggerel songs and all, provid
ed you will say nothing to expose our unanswera
ble arguments in favor of glorifying gamblers, du
ellists and slaveholders!!
How does this contrast with the liberality of the
Liberty Association, whose doors have from the
first been thrown wide open for all, and invitations
always extendt;;! to gentlemen oi opposite views
to take pun in the discussions ?
Quehe. Would it be "within the rules" for
any spectator, after hearing himself and friends
"roundly misrepresented, to fine in singing a coon
song to close? Or, if the Club should be comman
ded to cheer, would it be lawful for the gentiles to
unite in the Wh-o-o-h-a-h ?

"For what fellowship hath righteousness' with un
righteousness? What communion hath light
with darkness? What concord hath Christ with
Belial; or what part hath he that belicvcth, with
an infidel?" " Wherefore come out from among
them and be ye separate, and touch not the un
clean thing."
Dear Sir: Without taking time, to recapitu
late the substance of my former letter, I proceed
to the remaining inquiry, viz:
2. Who and what is Henry Clay, whom the
'President of the Woodstock Clay Club is devoting
;his energies to elect to the presidency of the U
'nited States?
Here let me premise, Sir, that whatever may
!be the associations which, in other minds, cluster
and entwine around the name of Henry Clay, in
somuch that (if the Whig press is to be credited)
the bare mention of it draws forth responses from
the assembled multitude so vociferous nnd (I will
add) so volcanic as to endanger the massive dome,
beneath which it is uttered, whatever emotions
may be excited in other bosoms at the mention of
that name, I confess, Sir, I have no ingredient in
my composition, that responds to such n call, no
feeling that harmonizes with the sentiment (if I
may use that word) of such vociferation. And
often, Sir, since the convention at Baltimore, have
1 asked myself the question, What secret, what
mysterious, what new discovered string or cord,
or muscle, e'en in human nature's strange organiz
ation, is there, that could echo back the name of
Henry Clay in such uprottrous outbursts such a
whirlwind storm? What principle, feeling, pas
sion or emotion was made to reverberate thus?
Was it patriotism? or philanthropy ? or humanity?
orjustice? or honor? or morality ? or religion ? Ah!
no, Sir, none of these! For sooner would the
corroded treasures, long in miser's caskets hoard
ed, leap forth at suffering's silent tear, than the
iiiarne of Henry Clay awaken one response from
:ny generous impulse or emotion of an honest
soul. What then, Sir, was it which came so near
.causing the blue skies of Baltimore to be the only
awning to shield the heads of Whig patriotism
from the scorching rays of a May sun? Pride, joy,
exultation, swell the bosom of an American a
New Englandcr at the name of Henry Clay?
No! 'tis false!. Slander not the departed spirits of
the puritan fathers by accusing their own flesh and
blood of glorying so soon in ucA a name! Tell
the world the truth (whoever ye are, that must
tell it nt all !) for the honor of our country and hu
manity, let posterity know that the whigs of 1841
gloried not in Henry Clay, but in the " loaves
and fishes of office" not in " Ashland's" in
famy, but in their own " bread and butler!"
But to the question Who is Henry Clay? In
answering which, sir, I wish not to detract from
the mefrts ot Mr. Clay the tithe of a hair. Ho
himself must know and feel that ne lma none to
part with.. That he has talents of a high ordei
and that, so far as mind is requisite, he might have
been a statesman, all will admit. And here, sir,
the lesson ends. All that can be, has been said.
And whoever undertakes to affix to his character
any graces or virtues either of heart or mind,
other than those above expressed, and what are
fairly embraced within them, is rendering tribute
where none is due. I know, sir, that Mr. Clay's
biographers point us to his speech in Congress
upon Grecian oppression, as though that alone
proved him possessed of all the virtues of patriot
ism, philanthropy and human sympathy. But
while Mr. Clay was pronouncing that same decla
tion upon liberty, in Congress, whoso "Greeks"
(as Randolph called them) were, at the same hour,
planking their chains at " Ashland?" His biog
raphers tell us, too, that Clay is the " father of
the American system." If they had told us that
lis is the father of many of those " chattels" which
constitute the patriarchal system, they would have
hit much nearer the mark. True, Mr. Clay, and
the whole slave holding representation were in
favor of the tariffs of 1816, '24, '28. Why so?
Simply because our large national debt, unless
paid off indirectly by a tariff, must have been li
quidated by direct taxation: and Mr. Clay's fifty
slaves, under a direct tax, must have paid into the
treasury an amount equal to the tax on thirty free
men: and this sum Mr. Clay could not quite make
up his mind to pay. llo preferred the indirect
method, by means of a tariff: and by this system,
the freemen of the north have been compelled to
pay a great share of the national debt, which Mr.
Clay must have paid as a tax on his slaves, had
there been no tariff. That covetousness was
Mr. Clay's sole propelling principle in his action
as to the tariff laws, is farther shown conclusively
from the fact, that just so soon as the national
debt was liquidated, and he was relieved from the
fear of paying taxes upon his slaves, then Mr. Clay
and the southern slavocracy all faced right about
and destroyed their own system of tariffs by the
"compromise" bill. If supreme selfishness is
patriotism, and if by the " American System" is
meant, the building up of a thing to-day to tear
down to-morrow, why, then, Henry Clay should
stand recorded as a staunch patriot, nnd one of
the fathers of the " American system."
But what is Henry Clay? I answer, sir, that,
whether viewed in his social, civil, political, mor
al, or religious relations, his life is a foul blot on
our national character; a long, dark, unbroken,'
unrelieved, scandal-stain upon the page of man's
history; and he himself, sir, (instead of being the
pride and the glory) will be a reproach and a dis
grace, to any nation of the present age that should
own him as a citizen. Look, sir, nt some of the
individual characteristics, which make up the
man, and then tell me ' it" I have ex a ggc rated or
set down aught in malice" against him. Audi
shall mention none other but such as are notori
ously his, those characteristics which his friends,
who know him best, dare not deny do justly be
long to him.
1. First, I say then, Henry Clay is a Gambler,
not merely of bye-gone years, but fresh in the
practice. Were I to use the western parlance, I
should call him a " blackleg" a term applicable
to those men whose covetousness is so controll
ing as to urge them to attempt to sivindle their
way through the world, independently of honest
2. Henry Clay is a profane swearer. '
3. Henry Clay is a wine-bibber.
4. Henry Clay is a sabbath-breaker.
5. Henry Clay is a debauchee.
C. Henry Clay is a duelist.
7. Henry Clay is a slaveholder; buying and
selling men, women and children for gain.
Is it strange, sir, that n man whose character is
made up of such a catalogue as this, should be
compelled to give security "be put under
bn?id.i" not to murder his fellow man ? Is it sin
gular that a man so destitute of all regard to the
laws of God and man so void of honesty and hu
manity, can be made to obey the Almighty's voice
mid Sinai's thunders uttered, " thou shalt not kill,"
only by the degrading appeal to his sordid covet
ousness, his base idolatry ? And if such a man,
with his right hand heavenward raised, dripping
with the blood of the murdered Cilley, should
swear to support the Constitution, could you rely
on his fidelity then? No, sir, you must make him
sw ear by dollars and cents. You must " put him
under bonds," or the nation would be without
guaranty in the matter.
Such, sir, is Henry Clay, whom the whig party
have recently nominated to the presidency of this
republican, Christian nation, and nt a convention
which was opened by the reading of the V. chap.
Ephcsians, three verses of which chapter read
thus: " For this ye know, that no whoremonger,
nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an
idolater, hath any inheritance hi the kingdom ot
Christ and of God;" verse 5. "Be not ye there
fore partakers with them;" verse 7. " And have
no jellowship with the unfruitful works of dark
ness, but rather reprove them;" verse 11. A sacri
lege and blasphemy parallel to that, thus commit
ted by that whig convention, is not to be found in
history. To my mind, it would be no more inap
propriate or blasphemous for a christian body to
read the second commandment of the decalogue as
a preparatory exercise to the setting up of an idol,
or ceremoniously to deposite a copy of the twelfth
commandment beneath the corner stone of a broth
el, about to be erected.
Such is the man, sir, whom you are laboring to
elevate to the highest offujp in a nation which
claims virtue and morality and religiou as the cor
ner stone of all its past and present prosperity, and
of nil its hopes of future advancement; a man
destitute of virtue and directed only by selfishness,
and that of a most grovelling cast: a man with
whom neither you nor any other virtuous citizen
of New England would choose to have his wife or
children associate: a man whoso crimes would dis
qualify him from cither giving or receiving a vote
for nny office in Vermont: a man whom, for his
violations of law (were he resident in your coun
ty) you, sir, a magistrate of justice, would have
been compelled to immure within the walls of
your penitentiary: a man, the last forty years of
whose life lias been a war of extermination against
tho rights, the happiness, and the hopes of his fel
low man, and whose life bids fair to crown his
hoary head with the glory of perpetual infamy, so
that after he shall have terminated his career of
tyranny, and debauchery, and blood, it shall be
written over his ashes, were better for his coun
try, belter for his race, had he never lived.
But I havo done with him, sir. There he is,
his life, his character, his epitaph. And now I
ask you, sir, in the name of all that is good and
holy, will you, by your vote, endorse such a char
acter? Will you, sir, a christian, clad in the
christian's panoply, vote for such a candidate?
What if a worse man should be elected if Clay is
not? Who, sir, authorized you to help " Satan
cast out Satan:"' "Come ye out from among
them!" The great body of the American church
arc now struggling in the meshes of the great ad
versary. The election of Mr. Clay would be
chronicled as a proud, a triumphant conquest over
the friends of righteousness. For that event
would he a proclamation to the wide world, that
here in our boasted christian America, virtue is no
requisite, crime no disqualification for office.
will you thus help the enemy to triumph? thus
help to rear aloft the black flag of the prince of
darkness where, for four long years to come, its
murky folds shall float from our national cnpitol,
proclaiming, in proud defiances of heaven, that in
Musical Convention.
The friends of the science of Sacred Music in Lamoille

for the entertainment of strangers from abroad will be
made, and no pains sparod by those immediately interes
ted to render the convention interesting and instructive.

Morrisville, May 15, 1844.
this " land of the pilgrims," judgment is turned
away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for
truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot en
ter?" I ask you, sir, if you can approach the
God of nations, with the prayer, that he would
place over Us, as our ruler, " a man after his own
heart," "a just man, who shall rule in his fear,"
and then can you go up to the ballot-box and give
your vote for Henry Clay, the gambler, duelist,
slave holder and debauchee? If you can, sir, I
hesitate not to declare it as my solemn and delib
erately formed opinion, that if Satan himself were
incarnate nnd had been nominated to the presi
dency, instead of Mr. Clay, you would, even in
such case, vote for the " candidate of the par
ty." The conclusion is legitimate and irresisti
ble, that if you can so far close your eyes to the
burning truth of God as to vote for Henry Clay, a
very little additional effort would enable you so to
close them that, with equal tranquillity of con
science, you could vote for the supposed substitute.
The length of this letter, sir, admonishes me to
close. I must leave unnoticed many topics, on
which I hud intended to touch: " the choosing
the least behveen two evils" a doctrine of the devil
engrafted into the practice of the church the
contempt cast upon God and religion the endorse
ment ot sin and crime to say nothing of the evils
to our country, politically considered, and the out
rages against the God-descended rights of our fel
low men, by supporting Henry Clay for the presi
dency : these, and many other topics, I leave for
your consideration, hoping and praying the mean
while that, since you have solemnly adopted the
word of God as your guide and director in this
life's affairs, vou will soberly search that word.
and, having learned the will of God, that you may
be able, by his grace, to obey it in all things, in
matters of "judgment, mercy and faith" as well
as of " mint and anise and cummin."
And now, I call upon every soldier in our Amer
ican Israel, to stand out on the Lord's side in this
warfare. " If the Lord bo God, serve him." I
call upon every sentinel upon lion's watchtowers
to " lift up his voice like a trumpet and show my
people their iniquities and the house of Israel
their sins." The temple of the living God is in
jeopardy. Already have your foes driven in your
outposts; they have already scaled the battlements
of your holy city already have they poured their
legions into the very heart of your citadel. The
Lord's hosts arc traitorously hauling down the
standard of the cross, and are about to run up the
black banner of the adversary. Ye watchmen, up !
sound the alarm in thunder-tones, and let it echo
from tower to tower, from battlement to battle
ment, as the mighty voice of God " to your tents,
O Israel!" " Come out from among them, and
bo ye separate, and touch not the unclean thing."
With this digression I close, sir.

Gentlemen, I called your attention in a recent
letter, to the combined efforts which are now ma
king for the annexation of Tczas to the I J. States,
and which I supposed to ho of a more alarm
ing character than you and your readers arc gener
ally aware of.
My chief object in addressing-you this evening,
is to mention a report which I suppose to be true,
to wit: That to-day, in secret .-ession of the Sen
ate, nnd pending the debates on the treaty, Mr. Mc
Dullie offered a joint resolution for the annexation
of Texas. This you know has long been threat
ened, and is a summary process of accomplishing
the object, and one by v4iieh a vote of two-thirds
will not he required.
The doors of the Senate are st',11 closed, and for
a reason that I am ashamed to repeat that the
Senate dare not discuss this subject publicly, for
fear of the blusterers of the Bowie knife and pistol.
1 have heard this said repeatedly , but I will not
trust myself with any comments upon it.
