the E'tors of the Courier:
-Gentlemen-It seems that-some, per
,sons are determined to misrepresent and
- ervert the proceedidgs 'of the Bluftou
dinnerto Mr. RUKTT.
In your paper of yesterday, you say
that you have "got written 'information
that (among other things, which you men
tion) the" Hon.' W.. F..CoL.cobK got up
the whole afair-did t all, Sic." Now
gentlemen.. as I am not at all trouble with
a prurient desirefar'oewspa per notoriety,
I should not, under other circumrsances,
condescend to notice the weak inventions
.of those "Chroniclers of snal! Beer."
But as its evident that there is a design
-to get up the impression that Mr. CAL
-HoUN and other distinguished gentleman
-of otir -iiate,' were assailed and denounced
at the Bluffton dinner, I am not so sofi as
to cllow this game to played of army ex
It is manifest, from the connection in
which'ny-name is used, that it was in
'tended to convey the insinnation that I
.am responsible for all the "sayings and
doings" on the occasion referred to which
the imag-ination of these- informers have
conjured up to sustain the issue they are
seeking to make. I must protest,' how
ever, against being rnade the. subject of
any such "poetic license."
Let a few i7ords put to rest these tri
flings with truth.
I reside 25 miles from Blufton, and at
-tedded the-diuter as an "invited guest."
I arrived in the. morning, heard Mr.
RaETT's addrest, dined, and returned
-horne the evening of the same day.
In reply to a.sentiment which had refe
rence to myself, I made a few remarks.
advocating decidedly, and without any
reservation, the call of a State Conven
Ain for the purpose of redeeming the
-solemn pledge of the State, and resibtiu,
in any way the'c6naventioni might deter

we had been tabLhito believe, and did be.
lieve, was unconstitutional and oppres

luded. to Mr. CALHOUs-spoke of hitn as
a "great and goo I man"-(a title I would
mot apply to any other statesman in our
country)-expressed the opinion that his
difference from. us should he a subject
.more of "sorrow than of anger"-and
-concluded by saying. that I believed the
-State ifunited. waq equal to the contest
-and it Was my hope that she woul I he
united, and he found moving on in the
path she had already pointed out for her

zo, make the most of it.
You Way judge from this sample wh;.t

To difer, gentlemen, with Mr. CAL.

We had heard that our old friend Dr.
Arnold of Abbeville. was a candidate for
the Senate from tha! District, and alaho'
for some years past he has acted with the.
whiiga, that he had now declared himself
opposed to the whig candidate for the.Pre

the party. We are happy to have the in

tele from the last Abbeville Banner-Pen
. '-On Monday last, Dr. A. B. Arnold
having been called on for his views upon
the questions of the day, delivered a short
address to about two hundred persons,
who had assembled in the Court House.
He ex pressed himself opposed to Mr. Clay,
because he had disregarded the Compro
inise -ct and avowed himself in favor of
the tariffof'42. and opposed to the annex
ation of Texas It was his opinion that it
was indispensably necessury for us to pos
sess Texas to throw off our redundaut ne
gro population, that unless we had such
outlet, in less than half a century they
would overrun us. -He was opposed to
the present Tariff, and thoughtit night be
reduced peaceably. if the States would
unite and present it to Congress, doinand
ing it as a matter of right. He was op
posed to the distribution of the proceeds of
the sales ofrthe publie lands, and internal
itmprovements, hecause their elfect was to

Withdrawal of Mr. Tyler.--At the
very moment that our paper was going to
press, we received the Mladisonian con
taining the address of the President to his
friends throughout the Union. He takes
a rapid and graphic sketch of party rela
tions, both before and since his elevation
to the Presidency. He deals a dignified
.but powerful blow, at ahe- Federal Whigs,
and triumphantly vindicates himself from
their false clamor. He looks ro thteefforts
of the Detnocratic party, to vindicate the
priniples5 to which he adheres with uwa
"This is a mnost important step in otur
political affairs. Antd, since the President
has. with the consent of his friends. secen
fit to take it, we hail it witht unaffeeled
pleasure. As we have said before, we
throw open to Mr. Tyler and his friends,
the doors of thes party temple, as wide as
the whole Untion. We are ready atnd
willing to go forth to battle with them,
against the common enemy ; being well
assured. thtat' thecir valor and their zeal will
tell well upon thte ranks of the foe. Mar.
Tyler will scarcely find the "retirement"
to which he alludes. His native atnd be.

in reserve for him.
