From the New Yorkcr.
It was a bcautiful aftcrnoon in the Indian

Ihn Wc.tcrn portion of our country. is of all
others the most cnchanting ; tho hright

Having passod through a corncr of the for

It was now growing quite dark in tho

doubt and uncertainty, tho long.drawn
howl of a wolT came with fearful dis.

When I had dropped Ihe least rcmaining

slavery, nnd what we call Negro slavery, in
the opinion of our slave. holders, are two
very difTprent things. Mr. Calhnun consid

our Statps, as Ihn source of much good ;

Ihal our candidates should nnt be flaveliold-

must detract from ihe mnral characler of

it should have ils due weight in ourcstimaln
of characler ; but it is entilled to no.hing
more. Should Mi. Clay, or his friends,
