We have received within the last three days not less than three letters from " the mplete Letter-writer." One dfihese was certainly not intended for the public eye. It is the extraordinary private letter to C. M. Clay, which we publish this morning, with the scathing stricture of the N. York Democrat. It shows with what eagerness the "aspirins and moon-reachinc Clay" is pursuing the game of ambition how anx iously he watches the vane of popular sen timent, and seeks to accommodate his o pinions to every section of the country.- It is impossible for one, who has always sriven Mr. Clay some credit, amid all his defeats, for moral firmness, and a decided character to see the twistings and turn ings of the political Proteus without aston ishment and contempt. The 2d letter was addressed to Dr. Moore of Georgia, partly intended for the private eye of his friends, but wrung from his correspondent by the publications of Mr. Holsey. It touches his former course about the right of Con gress to emancipate the slaves of the Dis trict and Mr. H. uses up this letter so as to present Mr. Clay in parallel columns, in opposition to himself at different peri ods of his course. But the letter of all the letters is the last, from the National Intelligencer. He swears at last, that it is to be his last that is, the last intended for the public eye. He says, that he doubted at first the pro priety of answering any letters upon any new questions that lie still doubts the propriety and vows, that this is to be the last letter he will write for the public eye. We must, therefore, regard it as the last strain of the dying swan and unfortunate ly for the minstrel, it is not the sweetest, but the most ridiculous and shameless of all his notes. Pity it is, inded, for his present prospects, and his future character, that he has written so many letters, and that this last should be so open to excep tions. Better, indeed, if he had taken much sooner the advice ol his friends in New York. Far better, if he, too, had had a Committee, like General Harrison, to conduct his correspondence, or refuse all answers. But so anxious has Mr. Clay been to propitiate all his friends in all di rections, to remove all objections, to abate all prejudices, and to grasp the sceptre, that he has been writing to all parts of the country, and presenting the most inconsis tent phases to North and South. One un fortunate letter has led him on to another. He writes a letter with a Noithern aspect, to please the Abolitionists. A Southern friend informs him, that this letter is doing mischief to his cause in the South. Out then comes another letter, witli more of a Southern aspect about it. Mr. Cassius M. Clay goes forth as a sort of missionary to win the Abolitionists. But his revelations are so strong, as to dissatisfy the Southern palate and out comes the "anointed chief tain" with a public letter, disclaiming some of the public remarks of the missionary but, for fear of Mr. C. M. Clay's taking offence at this public demonstration, he addresses a private note to excuse his pub lic letter telling him, that he had been obliged to gainsay his declarations, because of the iijury they were "likely to inflict upon the Whig cause in the States of Ten nessee, N. Carolina, and Georgia" and that they "even endangering the Slate of Kentucky." We cannot trace the anxious and des perate game which Mr. Clay has been . i i i ; i playinz-h.s electioneering tour-lus mul - numinous anu various tellers, an jut tjjvu without losing that respect for his mor- al firmness, of which he had been cried up as "the great Embodiment." Who now can confide in his professions, after wit nessing the fluctuations which he has ex hibited in his four letters on the Texas question? What will the Abolitionists think of his apparent versatility? Beshre w us ! but we now believe, that Mr. Clay will retire from the campaign, not only with defeat upon his banners, but shorn of that high character for intrepidity, and e ven audacity, with which he entered the contest. We lay this last Will and Testament befere our readers. We have no room for the copious remarKS, wmcn u is caicuiavcu to call forth. It places its author in a most , . t t . 1 one can mistake its character. It is inten ded to win back, if possible, the Abolition vote, which he tells Cassius Clay, in his private litter, he (H. Clay) is "afraid" he is destined to lose. These letters (Nos. 1, 2 ami 3) he had written abont the an nexation ofTexas. Tire 1st was intended for the North. Nos. 2 and 3 were design ed for a Southern latitude, to soften down the objections to his 1st letter. He had so completely mystified the whole subject, tht some mm had said, that he must now Ulltll'iauiv ' - r- write a 4th letter to explain his threefint. And lo! here it is! making confusion, if possible, worse confounde'd" andf the 'distracted politician," if possible, more awkward and ridiculous! This 4th hst I throw of the dice,- is to expunge his two leiters, Nos. 2 and 3, and brings him back to the 1st, (Raleigh) or Abolition letter. The whole letter is weak and contempti ble showing that infirmity of purpose, which i the evidence of an eager, moon reaching and unbalanced spirit an infir mity of purpose, which he manifested from the very moment when he consented to write any replies at all, down to the pres- . - eut, last, expiring enort. we pas9 over the comments, which rise to our lips on reading this crude and panic-struck pro duction. But nothing surprises us more in the whole of its contents, than that a man, who had been so much attached to Texas; who had solemnly protested against its cession in '20, and had attempted twice to recover it in '25 and '27, should now have the folly to come foward and say, substantially, "Oh! as to myself, I have no personal or individual motives for opposing, nor have I any for espousing, the measure. I have no wish myself in the matter and all I wish is to plesse every body else." Whatever be my particular views and o pinions1' (which he has not the courage to express,) "I should be happy to see what the whole nation might concur in desir ing under the conditions stated." And this declaration he now makes after the indica tion of his personal feelings in his recent letter. But who does not see, for what purpose this last letter is indited? Who is so blind as not to see, that Mr. Clay, a larmed by the accounts he had received a bout the Abolitionists, writes it to propi tiate their prejudices; and, in fact, to pre sent, of all others, this single sentence, "iMotning was lurtner trom my purpose than to intimate any change of opinion, as long as any considerable or respectable portion of the Confederacy should contin ue to stand out in opposition to the an nexation of T 'exas.1J But the Delphic Oracle has spoken tco late. The Conven tion of Utica have decided against him and upon the ground, not so much of An nexation, as of Slavery, which Mr. Clay did not anticipate, and does not meet in this last will and testament. There is an other feature in this remarkable letter. It is to be his last and in it he goes appar ently the whole against Texas and he a vows to the Abolitionists, that it is his last that he will change no more that the weatheicock will shift no longer on its pi vot but that he will remain true, eter nally true, to the unqualified declarations of his Raleigh letter against annexation. But, whilst he addresses these pledges to the North, what will the South say of him? What hope docs he hold out to them? None. He closes the door for ever. Like the inscription on the poetic gates of Hell, there is "No Hope," writ ten upon them. We shall scarcely hear Messrs. Leigh and Lyons, &c, &c, aver ring now, that Mr. Clay is the very man to get us Texas. Southrons ! Mr. Clay has sacrificed this beautiful country for the votes of the Abolitionists, and to his own ambition, will you What will you say ? What do? From the National Intelligencer. A LETTER FROM MR. CLAY. To the Editors. Ashland, September 23, 1844. Gentlemen: Since my nomination at Balti more in May last, by the Whig Convention, as a candidate for the office of President of the United States, I have received many letters propounding to me questions on public affairs, and others may have been addressed to me which I never received. To most of those which have reached me I have replied; but to some l have not, because either the subjects of which they treated were such as that, in respect of them, my opinions, I though!, had , hefTn Sllfficient,; pJro&, 0r that they did not possess, in my judgment, sufficient importance to require an answer from me. 1 desire now to say to the public, through you, that, considering the near approach of the Pre sidential election, I shall henceforward re spectfully decline to transmit for publication any letters from me in answer to inquiries up on public natters. After my nomination, I doubted the propri ety, as I still do, of answering any letters up on new questions of public policy. One who may be a candidate for the Chief Magistracy of the Nation, if elected, ought to enter upon the discharge of the high duties connected with that office with his mind open and un committed upon all new questions which may arise in the course of its administration, and ready to avail himself of all the lights which he may derive from his Cabinet, from Con gress, and, above all, Irom the public opinion 1 in auvauuc lie auuuiu tviuuin umiotn w T ( lak n A K .-v rl.n..U m at- It i mo4kl C tr individualg who may think proper t0 address him, he may deprive the public and himself of rrra o 4. - in? this view, it was my intention, after ray nomination, to decline answerin for publica tion all questions that might be propounded to me. But, on further reflection, it appeared to me that if I imposed this silence upon my self, I might, contrary to the uniform tenor of my life, seem to be unwilling frankly and fearlessly to submit my opinions to the pub lic judgment. I, therefore, so far deviated from my first purpose as to ,espond to letters addressed to me, making inquiries in regard to subjects which had been much agitated. Of the answers which I so transmitted, some weraintended exclusively for the satisfaction of my correspondents, without any expecta tion on my part of their being deemed worthy of publication. In regard to those which have been presented to the public, misconceptions and erroneous constructions have been given to some of tbem, which I think they did not authoriie, or which, at all events, wsrc con- trary to my intentions. Io announcing my determination to permit no other letters to be drawn from me on nub Iffcffitfti, 1Mnk ?' $ttoU teyidfbm Occasion a rnrrpft the prrnnaniu intsrnrntn. i tion of one or two of those which I had previ .. I ously written. In April last I addressee to yon, from Raleigh, a letter in respect to the proposed treaty, annexing Texas to the United States, and I have since addressed two letters to Alabama upon the same subject. Most un warranted allegations have been made that those letters are inconsistent with each other, and, to make it out, particular pi. rases or ex pressions have been torn from their context, and a meaning attributed to me wa.ch I never entertained. I wish how distinctly to say, that there is not a feeling, a sentiment, or an opinion ex pressed in my Raleigh letter to which I do not adhere. I am decidedly opposed to thn immediate annexation of Texas to the United States. I think it would be dishonorable, might involve them in war, would be danirer ous to the integrity and harmony of the Un ion, snd, if all these objections were removed, could not be effected, according to any infor mation I possess, upon just and admissible condi iions. It was not my intention, in either of the two letters which I addressed to Alabama, to express any contrary opinion. Representa tions had been made to me that I was consid ered as inflexibly opposed to the annexation of Texas under any circumstances; and that my opposition was so extreme that I would not waive it, even if there were a general consent to the measure by all the States of the Union. 1 replied, in my first letter to Alabama, that personally I had no objection to annexation. I thought that my meaning was sufficiently obvious, that 1 had no personal, private, or in dividual motives for opposing, as I have none tor espousing the measure, my judgment be ing altogether influenced by general and noli tical considerations, which have ever been the guide of my public conduct. In my second letter to Alabama, assuming that the annexation of Texas might be accom plished without national dishonor, without war, with the general consent of the States of the union, and upon fair and reasonable terms, I stated that I should be glad to see it. I did not suppose that it was possible I could be misunderstood. I imagined every body would comprehend me as intending that, whatever might be my particular views and opinions, I should be happy to see what the whole nation might concur in desiring under the conditions stated. Nothing was further from my purpose than to intimate any change of opinion as long as any considerable and re spectable portion of the Confederacy should continue to stand out in opposition to the an nexation of Texas. In all three of my letters upon the subject of lexas, I stated, that annexation was inadmis sible, except upon fair and reasonable terms, if every other objection were removed. In a speech which 1 addressed to the Senate of the United States more than three years ago, I a vowed my opposition, for the reasons there stated, to the assumption, by the General Go vernment, of the debts of the several States. It was hardly, therefore, to be presumed, that I could be in favor of assuming the unascer tained debt of a foreign State, with which we have no fraternal ties, and whose bad faith or violation of its engagements can bring no re proaches upon us. Having thus, gentlemen, made the apology which I intended, for my omission to answer any letters of inquiry upon public affairs which I may have received, announced r.y purpose to decline henceforward transmitting answers for publication any such letters that I may hereafter receive; and vindicated some of those which I have fowarded, against the erroneous constructions to which they have been expo sed, 1 have accomplished the purpose of this note, and remain, respectfully, your obedient servant, H. CLAY. Messrs. Gales & Seaton. From the Nashville Union. "Who is James K. Polk ?" - THE FEDERALISTS ALARMED. No sooner was James K. Polk nomina ted as the democratic candidate for the pre sidency, than the federal papers and lead ers throughout the Union, with their ac customed arrogance, cried out, " Who is James K. Polk?" and affected to treat his pretentions lightly and said that the idea of his having the least chance to be elected was ridiculous. It was predicted that they would find out who he was in November, and the prediction is being verified. All their movements prove thai they are, in truth, greatly alarmed ; alffheir newspa pers, great and small all their great and small bodies, are laboring incessantly to stay the current of the popular sentiment, which they cannot fail to see is running rapidly against them, and sweeping James K. Polk into the presidential office. They see and fear the result of the contest, and are almost desperate. They have ceased to cry out, with the haughty arrogance always inseperable from federalism, "who is James K. Polk?" They have found out who he is. All their papers are filled with long and labored ar ticles to prevent his election. The Na tional Intelligencer, at Washington the leading organ of federalism is now con stantly discoursing about this unknown James K. Polk. As a sample of their in timate acquaintance with him, in' that pa per cf the 7lh instant, rs a labored article of between Jive and six columns, devoted to a review of his claims and qualifications for the presidency. In the Nashville Whig of the 17th inst., is an article of be tween nine and ten column devoted to James K. Polk. Webster, Seward, John Quincy Ad ams, Slade, and the whole federal hive at the North and East, have found out "who James K. Polk is," and that he w lo be the next President of the United Slates, unless they csn slander him out of his well-earned character and reputation before the people. Crittenden and the notorious Ormm9. from the neighborhood of the ilAmKAfitTinnl N ....... 7 ' I .... . I. a .. sent over tb Tennessee to help Bell, Fos ter, Jarndgin, and the rest of their leaders, to prevent the election of this same James K. Polk. All their efforts are vain; their slander ous misrepresentations1 are harmless. The real people the great masses have risen in their might, and the march of the De mocracv is onward. Since the harmonious nomination of Si las Wright for governor of New York, of Shunk for governor of Pennsylvania, and of Thompson for governor of New Jersey, they see the resistless current of democra cy sweeping over those States; and driven almost to despair, are struggling with al most frantic rage to avert the fate which they see awaits them in November. A party with desperate prospects will resort to desperate means. They are mis representing every act of Governor Polk's public life. They take garbled and in complete passages from this speech and that report, and suppress the balance; they give this vote and suppress all other votes in the same connection; and in this way present to the public the most palpable falsehoods, and hope to impose them on a confiding public for truth. A full illustra tion of this oourse of political warfare is to be found in the article of nine or ten col umns in the Nashville Whig of the 17th. That article is but a sample of many oth ers of the kind, which we have eeen re cently. Tennesseeans! whig as well as demo crats will you not rise in your majesty and stand by your brethren of the Old Do minion of the Keystone and Empire States of the democracy of the whole Union, in placing your own citizen in the first office, not only of this country, but of the world? To furnish a President of tha United States is a most distinguished honor to any State. But five States in this Union, (du ring more than fifty years) have ever fur nished a President of the United States.- The democracy of the twenty-six Stales, assembled in council, voluntarily offer this distinguished honor a second time to Ten nessee. What Tennesseeau does not feel proud that he is a Tennesseeau, when he reflects, that out of all the distinguished men. of the Union, a citizen of Tennessee, who did not seek or expect it, has been se lected as the candidate of the whole Un ion? Will Tennessee reject the honor which has been offered to her, by refusing to ra tify, by her vote in November, the nomi nations which have been made? WTe are satisfied, from all the signs around us, she will not. We know she will not. The pure republican principles of her people forbid it. Her own future glory as a State forbids it. Virginia noble Virginia, is now looked to as the mother of Presidents. Whenever her sons emigrate, they proud ly point back to the land of their birth, and claim the glory of their native State as their own. Let Tennessee take her stand by the side of Virginia; and let her sons, too, when in future time they may chance to be in distant climbs, point back to the glo ry of Tennessee, the cherished home of their birth. We have not a remaining doubt, but that James K. Polk will be cho sen President of the United States in No vember next; without the vote of Tennes see; but as Tennesseeans, we have a pride that Tennessee should aid by her vote in consummating this grert event. We have not a doubt she will do so. And when the election shall be over, and James K. Polk be placed in the Presidential Chair, we trust all our federal adversaries will by that time have learned who this James K. Polk is. MARRIED MEN. BY ONE WHO KNOWS Til EH. A man is born a Betty, he may be born a genius, mechanician, musician, poet or financier. The Betty may adore his wife and children, be an honorable man of bu siness, and acquit himself of all those du ties which society imposes, but his home will still be disagreeable. Breakfast is served. The wife takes up the morning paper, while she sips her coffee, and our domestic gentleman amuses himself by making toast. For a few mo ments he is absorbed in silent contempla tion of the glowing embers, but in a short time he calls the attention of his wife, and says, "dkl you put a stick of wood on the fire last evening, after I went out ?" "A stick of wood, my dear! What did you say?" "I Was not talking Hebrew, I believe. When I went out last evening, at nine o' clock, there were two slicks on the fire, a large and small one enough to last till bed time, i don t want to prevent your ing as much fins as you please, bat to keep an exact account; for this morning I found three brands. Now, how could there be three brands if you did not born a third stick ?" "Ah! my dear, how vexatious yoti are; some times. I mav or mav not have nut on more wood, t am trfrinff tb read an article which interests me, and you mmt needs interrupt me about a paltry stick of wood !" The domestic gentleman is silent, and contents himself with whistling to himaelf m a low tone, a thing which he is in the habit of doing when he is dissatisfied witH a reply. At breakfast the butter arrests his atten' tion. "How much did you pay for this but ter?" he asks. "I don't know, I'm sure." "Don't know! Good heavens! what do you mean?" "The servant purchased it." "You learned the price from her, 6' course?" "Yes, yes I remember, it was thirty six cents, 1 believe." "You believe! Here! Sally, Sally!" The servant makes her appearance and is arraigned before the domestic man. "How much was this butter, Sally?" "Thirty-six cents, sir." "Thirty-six cents a pound?" "Of course it was'ht thirty-six cents a firkin," replies the young lady, with a dis dainful and rather daring curt of the Ifp ; and as she leaves the room she indulges herself with the housemaid's luxury of slamming the door behind her. "Thirty-six cents a pound!" repeats the domestic man. "Thirty-six cents! It is truly frightful to think of! I ate some capital butter at Bilson's the other morn ing, and he only paid thirty-two cents. Bilson's butter was the better of the two." When the housemaid commences the daily task of sweeping the room a task which would seem to carry its reward with it, to judge by the cheerful steal with which' it is commonly performed the domestic husband is always before the servant's broom, peering into every corner, solici tous to detect cobwebs, and pushing hie scrutiny into' every hole and corner. Some time before the dinner hour, he is accustomed to make a solemn tour of ihe kitchen. He is an habitual lifter of the pot-leds, and inquisitor of tih-kitchehs and reflecting bakers. If the old fashion of roasting meat is still honored in his family; he draws his stool to his chimney corner; and bakes the crown of his head as he bends over the fire, and whips up the turn spit into a full gallop. He hovers over an1 unknown dish, in a doubt awhile, and then1 summons the cook. 44 What have you here?" "Fricassed chicken, sir." "Have you put in any mushrooms? "Certainly, sir." "If is" very singular I can't find any; Ah! here I have one yes, yes, it's all right. 1)6 we have soup, to-day?" 44Don't you see the pot on the fire?" 44 Very true. Outlet me tell you, ydd spoil your soups by putting too many ve-" getables in them. Now how many car rots did you put in?" "I'm sure I don't remember. Must f count them now?" 44It will be as well. Stop, I'll doit for you. I should 'nt be surprised if there were half a dozen." And the gentleman commences a painful search for the orange-colored vegetables; in the course of which he receives sundry splashes from the unetuous & savory soup; and finally in tasting a spoonful of the compound rather prematurely, he scalds his mouth severely, without, however, re ceiving the least sympathy from the cook, to whom such an occurrence seems to give peculiar satisfaction. An accident of this kind usually puts an end to his quest, and he leaves the kitchen with diminished dig nity, i he Betty is the peculiar aversion of the cook. Indeed your cook seldom remains long in the service of your domes tic man she soon demands her wages and quits his roof but the lady Of the house is debarred the enjoyment of the servant's privilege for such the scandalous work! asserts that she considers it. 1 Tho u'nmlorc nf p.im rnttinnr urflf never cease. The other day a travelling chiropodist not only extracted a corn from a gentleman's foot, but actually succeeded in removing a "Bunyan" from a bookcase; without the owner being aware of it. Conversing one day wrth a fash ionable and pretty belle, the fascetious Mr. L observed: "Ladies that lisp wished1 to be kissed." The young lady, whb had spoken very uhaffectionately oefore, Ksp mgly replied, "7W I've heard thay." A Good One. It is a shame to make the Presidents of the United States giv their countenance to such a business, said a lady on observing a sign having thereon; painted the likeness of si! the Presidents hanging before a tavern.
