"I answer decidedly, NO! So fur from being a member of such n society, I did not know, but as you knew it, viz: by commno'n 'ame, that there was, or ever had been, a society of ihat description in any of the Northwestern States, until three weeks ago!" Harri.on equivocates about the word r "Abolition," when speaking to the South. Inl his lettor dated "North Bend, June 1, 1840, to Mr. Lvons. of Virginia, (where :he word Abolitio'n is in rather had odor,) ie %rites as follows, though with an in junction at the end in these words. "1 do not wish what I have said above to be pub lished!" ,-In answer to the inquiry why I used the word 'abolition' in designating a socie ty of which I was a member inl Richmond, in the year 1791, instead oftho word 'hn mane,' which is known to be the only one by which the society was really distin guishe'l, all that I cain say upon the sub ject is. that if lid really term it an Aho lion Society, a fact which I can hardly believe, (for I have nor been able to se the paper containing my address to the people of the district in lS22.)it must have been from forgetfulness, which might eas ily happen after a lapse of thirty-one years." Harrison does not equivocate about the word Abolition when speaking to the North. Dr. Baily, Editor of the Philanthropist, an Abolition paper printed at Cincinnati, in his paper of the 30th of June last, says: "In two interviews we bad with Gen. Harrison on this subject, about fovur months since, he was at pains to assure ts, that lie had himselfbelonged to an "Aholition society at Richmtond V;rgitia.' He did nor hesitate about the phrase; he (lid not use any other. 'Abolition society' seem ed the only name which he knew or cared to know. Besides, we know that hn has been in the habit of'using the term 'A holi tion' as the distinctive title of the society at Richmond." Harrison is not tampering with the Ab olitionists, say his friends: while poblic speeches are made, and the columns of the Federal Newspapers are filled to prove that he is nop1tftt:-. -..

Frt. 4, 1840. S1a-I observed in the doings of the anti-slavery convention at Springfield, a resolution denouncing General Harrison. I think this premature, to say the least of it. [ have seen a letter from the Gerneral. in which lie pronounces the story circulat ing in the press or West, (not certain which,) that he, while G'tvernor of I ndi ana, Cir ten years, done every thing in his power to spread slavery, a fotil slander, and speaks ofit with grett indigon'ioan, and says that it would be imti possible firl him to do any thing ofilhe kind, eitlher pri vately or publicly, for the reason, lie says. that whilo only eighteen years of age, itt Virginia, he joined an Aholition society, and, with the other members of the same. pledged hinielito d'a every thing in his power to eflect the emntancipationi of slavies -that be was to inherit a large property of slaves. and subsequently not only eman cipated his own, ont purchased others flor the purpoe of encnipnting them. Tlis is what the Getneral himself says. I write you ihis for such use as you may hintg proper, except putting it in tIhe news papers. WM. B. CALHOUN. Hon. JUDGE hMo1nts." This letter was used privntely among the Aholitionists, as wve shnall see. On the oth of May tthere was ant Abolitioun Con vention at' B3ow'tn M r. A hel Birowmn a delegate from M e. Calhoun's disttrict, mnadte a spe(ech, of which the folloninitg is an ex tract, lie said: "Mr. W. B. Catlhtotn has written home letters fromt Washtington to convince the Abolitionists that they were wrong n opponsi ne H- arrisomn. Copies was private ly handed rrutndl among the Abolition ists by the Whigs, and he (Mr. Brown), had seen sorme of theta, in which M r.

Ilarrison hias sunpported Abonlitionistm, accoruding to his ow n showinia. In hris all-aided speechi at Cheviot, he saidl: "Should I be asked, if there is no way by which the General Governmetnt can aid the cause of emnancipationt, I answer, that it has been an object tnear my heatrt to see the whole surplus revenue appro priated to that object. With the sanction of the Slates holding the slaves, there ap pears to me no unconstitutiotnal objection to its being thus applied. embracinig not only the colonization of those that may be otherwise freed, but the purchase of thne fre-edlom of others." Again: "I wvae thne first person to introdluce into Congress the proposition that all the conn try above Missoiri which, having no in habiteluts, was free frorm the objection made to Missoriri and1 Arkansas, should never ha' e slavery alhnitted io i." In addiriitn to this, its a mtembier of the Ohio Legishiture. ho vored instructions to the memibers of Congress from that State I to oppose th e admission of any Territory into the U~nion with the privilege of hold ing savos. The journals show it. Harrison has opposed Aboliioni3m Say his friends, because lie once cast. a vote in favor of the admission of Missouri, with slave privilege-and because he says in hip late letter to Lyons, that no man south of Aiason anid Dixon's line has suffered more than himself on hccount of suplporliug Southern interest. Harrison pretends to be the poor man's friend. In a letter to J. H. Pleasnais, dated at Richmond. September 15, 1836. Harrison saitt: "So far from being willing to sell men for deht which they were unwilling to dia charge, I am, and ever have been, oppos. ed to all imprisonment for debt. Fortu nately I have it in my power to show that such has been my establtshed opinion. and that, in a public capacity, I avowed and acted upon if." And in his letter to tile E3ditor of the Cincinnati Advertiser, in 1821. Harrison said: "So far from advocating the abomina ble principles attributed to me by your cor respondent, I think that imprisonment for debt under any circumsaecas but that where fraud is alleged, is at War nsith the best principles of our Constitution, and ought to be abolished." Virginia-The results of the recent De mocratic Convention at Charlottesville, are in the hiahest degree cheering. as will he seen by the following paragraph: Charleston Mercurr,. During the session a Committee com pobed of twenty-three Delgates, one from iach electoral 'district, gentlemen of dis retion and character, wvas appointed to .tcertain the probable state of parties in Virginia. By a comparison of calcula ions, and after making liberal allowunce 'or whig claims, it was decided that there vould be a Democratic majority in fit'een istricts, and a Whig majority in eight. naking the majority of Mr. Van Buren i918. On this, the editor of the Rich nond Enquirer remarks: "For our owtn art, we have tried some of these calcoia ions by the information we had previons y received from numerous counties, and e have come to the conuistot, Ihnt if' ur friends do their duty, we shall carry he whole State by at least 7000.

THE "DODUER." | There is no being in God's creation, more pitiful, more contemptilie, than the habitual calculating "dodger" who dare not ex press an opinion on any of the great questions of policy which agitate the coun try, and this too, from motives of sheer personal aggrandizement. Upon such a being, the choicest gifts of Providence have been bestowed in vain. He has eyes, but cannot see-ears, but will not hear a tongue, but dare not speak. To him, The inestimable blessings of civil liberty are "trifles, light as air." Freedom of thought and ofspeech-among the noblest privileges conferred by the "God of Na ture" upon man, and rendered secure by the wiiest ofhuman ordinances-he does not. because ie will not, enjoy. He shrinks from their exercise, and voluntarily per mits a "gag" to be placed upon his lips. more lumiliating than that inflicted by the hand as some cruel despot upon the lips ofhis abject serfs. Dreading Sylla on the one hand, and Charybdis on the other, he dare not venture beyond the stagnant pool ofrhiown imbecility, and while all the rest of mankind are moving forward in rapid and continual approximation to a still higber and more glorious destiny. he remains the sane plodding. incorrigible, unserviceablo being, to the end of his career. Such. a one is of no earthly use, either to himself or the age in which ho lives, if indeed he can be said to live at all. Tyrants are dethroned, and the temple of liberty is reared upon the ruins of a bloody despotism; but he has no lot in subverting the one, or laying the foundation of the other. Civilization and refinement are carried by the instrumentality of master spirits to the "uttermost ends of the earth," but lie bears no part of the joyful burthen. An issue fraught with the everlasting desti ny ofa great and powerful republic. invol ving not only its temporary welfare, but al so its future exiktence arises, and he is a fraid to assunme his share in working out its final consumt:.ntion.

It differs frmut most other trees. in having all its branches in one plice, like the sticks ofa fan, or the feathere of a peacock's tail. At the extrenes of each branch, grows a broad dotble leaf, several feet in length, which spreads itselfout very gracefully. These leaves radiate heat so rapidly after sunset. that a copinus deposition of dew takes place upon them soon collecting in to drops, forms little streams which go down the branches to the trunk. Here it is received into hollow spaces of considera ile magnitude, one of which is found at the root of every branch. These bran ches lie one above the other alternately. and when a knife, or what is better, a flat piece' ofstick.
