Polk's ancestors James K. Polk the friend and advocate of old Soldiers'' right, proven by the Journals of Congress Mordecai Hartley and other federal coons, op posed to the scar-worn trtcrans who fought our Bailies. A COUPLE OF COOXS SKIAXED! " Tho earth hath bubbles as the ocean has, And these are of them." imkspeare. " Who knows to what their ribaldry may run, When asses such aa these, like liaalum's, prate." The Clay coons of our good town of Cadiz, believing that their own orators were not profi cients in tho art of dealing out humbuggeiy and falsehood, imported a couplo of long-eared ani mals from Wheeling, named Titt3 and Russell. These persons addressed the Clay Club' at the Court House, on last Friday evening. We have in our time listened to the most reckless federal speakers that ever attempted to enlighten the country on the beauties of coonery, but we must confess that this yoke of coons from the Old Do minion, rather exceeded any persons we have heard lately, in dealing out sophistry and non sense, falsehood and flummery. Mr. Pitts, the more decent of the two, if any distinction could be made, spoke first, and at onco mounted the favorite federal hobby of a "Protective Tariff." He commenced by asserting a downright false hood, based his argument on false premises, drew forth false deductions, and consequently arrived at false conclusions. Ho asserted that the democratic party were the advocates of Free Trade, and that James K. Folic, our candidate for President, is a Free Trade champion. This charge is utterly destitute of truth, and we defy Mr. Pitts, or any other federal orator, to produce the proof, either from the proceedings of demo cratic meetings, the speeches of democratic members of Congress, or the writings and speeches of James K. Polk. It is the easiest tiling in the world to make assertions, and reck less federal politicians deal in little else. Pos sibly there may bo a few individuals, and these few not confined to any one party, who aro op posed to even a Tariff for Revenue who think that the fabricks of all foreign nations should be admitted fee of duty, and that the amount of money nccossary to defray the expenses of Gov ernment, should ho raised by direct taxation. But. wc opine that the persons who hold such sentiments, are few and far between, and are not found in one party more than another. ' Both tho democratic and whig parties are the advocates of a taiilT; but with this difference: the Democrats are in favor of such a tax or ta riff being imposed on foreign imposts, as will af ford sufficient revenue to defray the expenses of an economical administration of the General Government. We contend, and rightly too, as experience has proven, that such a tariff is all that is needed, and will necessarily afford inci dental protection to all American interests. The federal party in the North, go farther than this. They advocate what they call " a Protec tive Tariff" -that is, that tho interests of the wealthy manufacturers of the country must be specially looked after, and that it is right and proper for Congress to single out one class of men, and legislate money into their already well rilled coffers. But Mr. Pitts, instead of: dwelling upon these incontrovertible facts, made an issue which does not really exist, prepared a man of straw, and battled him with as much va lor as over Don Quixote exhibited in his memo-' ranlo encounter with the windmi ll And Mr. Pitts did not tell his auditors Mr. Clay's views in regard to a tariff--oh, uo! That was entirely too unimportant a matter! He knows full'wcll that Mr. Clay has been playing a deep and deceitful game on the tariff question. In tho South, Clay s supported on the ground that lie is claimed to be "moio of a free trade man than Mr. Van Bnren." In the North, he is supported because he is for a high protective tariff; and in tho West, he is supported, because it is said he is in favor of a horizontal tariff; that is, a tariff without dis crimination, somewhat like the Compromise Act, with uniform duties of 20 per centum. Mr. Pitta will find it an up-hill business to convince the honest farmers of Harrison county, that the policy of Mr. Clay and tho whigs will have a ten dency to increase the price of their grain. It is well known that tho whig tariff of 1812, had the effect of causing a retaliatory protective tariff to bo passed by the Canadian Parliament, &. the best wheat market wo have ever had, for the farmers of this region, and tho country immediately west of this, has been entirely shut up. The ta bles will show that comparatively littlo wheat is now shipped to Canada, through tho Ohio Canal, Now, to convince these long-eared federal dan dies, who came over from Virginia to preach ser mons on a tariff, that our present protective ta riff has injured our farmers, we will present some figures, and " figures cannot lie." From tho reports of tho Board of Public . Works for the years 1811 and 1813, we have obtained the following facts. We challenge a denial: Table showing the number of bushels of wheat shipped from thefollowing places on the Ohio canal,for the years 1811 and 1843, for Cleve land: 1811. Columbus, (bushels) 54,855 Newark, do 400,778 1813.

At seven villages alone, the falling off in tho single article of wheat is nearly half a million of bushels! What a glorious protection to wheat growers. How they are benefitted by a tariff. We whall now give our readers Mr. Polk's views on the tariff question, and contrast them with those of Mr. Clay. Mr. Clay in his letter to Mr. Merriwether of Georgia, says he never was in favor of a high tariff; and in his speech in Congress, on the 21st of January, 1812, as reported in the National Intelligencer, he said, " Carry out the spirit of the Compromise Act. Look to revenue alone for tho support of Gov ernment. Do not raise the question of protec tion, which I had hoped had been put to rest. THERE IS NO NECESSITY OF PROTEC TION FOR PROTECTION." We shall now quote further from this Janus-faced politician, this duellist and writer of challenges, who is making a crazy effort to get himself made President of the United Stales. The following is an extract from Mr. Clay's great speech at Raleigh, as published in the wlrg papers: " We must reject both the doctrines of free trade and of a high and exhorbitant tariff". The partizans of each must make some sacrifices of their peculiar opinions. They must find some common ground, on which both can stand, and reflect that, if neither has obtained all that it de3ires, it has secured something, and what it does not retain has been gotten by its friends and countrymen. There are very few whodissen! from the opinion that in time of peace, the federal revenue ought to be drawn from foreign imports, without resorting to internal taxation. Here is a basis lor accommodation, and mutual satisfaction. Let the amount, which is re quisite for an economical administration of the Govern ment, when wc are not en-rased in war. be raised ex clusively on foreign imports, and in adjusting a tariff for that purpose, let such, discriminations he made as will foster and encourage our own domestic industry. All parties ought to he satisfied with a tariff for reve nue and discriminations lor protection." These are Mr. Clay's views as expressed in te South. Now hear what Col. Polk says. The subjoined letter, it will be seen, was written since the nominations at Baltimore: MR. FOLK'S LETTER. COLUMBIA, Tennessee, June 19th, 1844.$ Dear Sin: I have received recently several letters in reference to my opinions oil the subject of the tariff, and among others yours of the 30th ultimo. My opin ions on the subject have been often given to the public. They are to be found in my public acts, and in the pub lic discussions in which I have participated. I am in favor of a tariff for revenue, such a one as will yield a sufficient amount to the Treasury to de fray the expenses of Government economically admin istered. In adjusting the details of a revenue tariff, I have heretofore sanctioned such moderate discrimina ting duties, as would produce tho amount of revenue needed, and at the same time afford reasonable inci dental protection to our home industry. I am opposed to a tariff for protection merely, and not for revenue. Acting upon these general principles, itis well known that 1 gave my support to the policy of General Jack son's adminstration on this subject. I voted against the tariff act of 18:28. I voted for the act of 1 8.1, which contained modifications ofsoine of the objection able, provisions of the act of 1828. As a member of tne l,oniunttee ol VV ays and Means ol the House ol Representatives, I gave my assent to a bill reported by that Committee in December, 1833, making Outlier modifications of the act of 1828, and making also dis crimination in the imposition of tho duties which it pro posed. That bill did not pass, but was superseded by the bill commonly called the Compromise Bill, for which I voted. In my judgment, it is the duty of the Government to extend, us far nsit may be practicable to do so, by its revenue laws and all other means within its power, fair and just protection to all the great interests of the whole Union, embracing agriculture, manufactures, the mechanic arts, commerce, and Navigation. I heartily approve the resolutions upon this subject, passed by the Democratic National Convention, lately assembled at Baltimore. I am, with great respect, Dear sir, your obedient servant, JAMES K. POLK. John K. Kane, Esq., Philadelphia. The following arc the resolutions of the Dem ocratic National Convention, referred to by Mr. Polk: " That justice and sound policy forbid the Federal Government to foster one branch of industry to the det riment of another, or to cherish the interests of one portion to the injury of another portion of our common country ; that every citizen and every section of the countiy has a light to demand and "insist upon an equality of rights and privileges, and to complete mi ample protection of persons and property from domedic violence and foreign aggression. "That it is the duty of every branch of Government to enforce anil practice tho most rigid economy in con ducting our public affairs, and that no more revenue ought to be raised than is required to defray the neces sary expenses oi tne ijovcrniiiciit." Now, we would ask, are these Free Trade sentiments? The person who would assert that Gov. Polk is a Free Trade man, after reading tho above letter, must cither be a knave or jack ass; and by the exhibition given us on Friday evening, at the Court House, it is evident the federal party are not in want of both articles. Tho remarks of Pitts and Russell relative to Texas, may pass for what they are worth. They are welcome to all the capital they or the fede ral parly can make out of that question in Ohio. We sec it slated that Mr. Clay's friends, fearful that the views of the Mill Boy, on annexation, will lose him the votes of several States, are about requesting him to publish another letter on the subject, more palatable to tho South. We shall wait for it tvith great anxiety; but per haps it will not be intended " for the public eye." Mr. Russell, tho longer oared gentleman of the two, after repeating over some stale and plagarizcd anecdotes, commenced firingyhia pu ny gun at James K. Polk, and declared that he was an obscure, fifth-rate county lawyer! That may do to tell to the Marines! Mr. Polk has occupied as high stations as the High Priest of Federalism himself. For thirty pieces of silver, Judas Iscariol betrayed his Lord and Master, and for the Secretary of Stateship, Henry Clay be trayed the democratic party, and had John Q. Adams placed in the Presidential chair. Gov. Polk has never been corrupt enough to bargain for the office of Secretary of State, so as to have himself placed "in tho lino of safe precedents" for tho Presidency. Tho people of Tennessee have made Mr. Polk their Governor Clay has never been Governor of Kentucky. Mr. Polk has been in Congress, and while thore, battled manfully against the profligacy and corruption of. tho United States Bank and other federal mea sures. And wo are certain his acts will bo re membered with more gratitude by the country than the acts of Henry Clay during tho same pe riod. It is acknowledged on all hands, that Gov. Polk made an excellent speaker, and so popular was he as presiding officer, that even the whigs themselves bore testimony to his fidelity and correctness. These Wheeling wiseacres in at tempting to make wit about our candidate's ob scurity, only made themselves ridiculous and contemptible. Thoy have not a man in tho fod- oral ranks in Virginia that will compare to Gov. Polk, eithr in political fidelity, intellectual en dowments, or moral worth. It is Hyperion to a Satyr, to contrast them together! Perhaps the, opinion of Horace Greek, the Ajix Tclemon of! whiggery in New York, will be of as much! weight, as any thing that can come from these lesser lights of Wheeling. Hear him : "In 18.19. JAMES K. POLK, ONE OF THE A BLEST MEN AND MOST POWERFUL SPEAK ERfS IN THE SOUTH-WEST, took the field aa the Administration (Van liiiren) candidate for Governor; and after a canvass of unprecedented vehemence, in which he ptottd himself an ocer match both in speaking talent and in personal addreit and pojndaritj, for bis op ponent, Governor Cannon, he was elected by eonie tweuty-fivc hundred majority." So then, if auy benighted whig enquires "who! is James K.Polk?" we have whig authority for saying that " James K. Polk is one of the ablest men and moet powerful speakers in the South West!" These "Lying Varlets" of Wheeling, not be- j ing able to bring any charges against Mr. Polk's character, which they know is as pure and un contaminated as tho mountain snow, must travel back to libel his ancestors. Like Hyenas, they dug up the smouldering ashes of tho grave! they charged some one of Gov. Polk's ancestors his grandfather, we believe with being a To ry. It is as false as Tartarus! The North Caro lina Standard, published in tho neighboihood where Gov. Polk was born, thus contradicts this most vile and inflamous slander: " We hurl back this foul, unmanly, and false charge. It has nothing of tiuth to sustain it. James K. Polk is the eldest son of Samuel Polk, and was born in 171)5, more than three years after the clote of the revolutionary war. Samuel Polk was too young to take any part in the struggles of that period; but all the members of his fumily were true Democrats, and we learn from a source not to be contradicted, that he, Samuel Polk, was a staunch Republican, and voted for Mr. Jefferson in 1800. Shame upon the editor who thus attempts, for low party purposes, to slander and defame an honest man now in his grave! He who would injure the son, by tarnishing the fair reputation of a worthy father, deserves and will receive the cxerations of all honora ble men." The NashvilleJJnion published in Tennessee, where Gov. Polk resides, also refutes the same slander, when published by the notorious George D. Prentice, Clay's biographer. Read what the Union sajs: " The Louisville Journal, edited by Mr. Clay's biog rapher, and which is his confidential organ in the West, is waging the same kind ot warfare upon Gov. Polk which was waged by Mr. Clay's organ in 18:28 against General Jackson. Unable to invent any Blander against Gov. Polk himself, which can effect his charac ter, that vile tool of Mr. Clay is engaged in digging up the ashes of his ancestors and slandering them before the people of Kentucky. He charges and asserts that Gov. Polk's ancestor was a tory in the Revolution, and only escaped the gallows by concealment. This most foul slander is uttered by Mr. Clay's confidential friend, and goes unrebuked by him. A viler slander never issued from the mouth ofa fiend than is this which .Mr. Clay's biographer utters. Yet Mr. Clay is willing to see the ashes of the ancestor of his competitor raked un and slandered, and to ernov the benefit ot the calunv ny. It is just such conduct as this that has forever disappointed and prostrated the ambitious hopes of Mr. Clay. Tho truth is, that no menjn the south were more highly distinguished nor more prominently remarkable for early fighting and hard fighting in the camp of free dom, than that of Gov. Polk's ancestors and rela tives in North Carolina. It is with shame and scorn that we, the descendants of North Carolinians find our next neighbor reviling the great and good name of Polk one of whom was shot through at the Cowpens shot through at Germnntown, and shot through at Monmouth. A laimly who wore some ot tho ueepest scars and brightest laurels of the Revolution. It does seem that uo man can come in the way of Mr. Clay, that he is not stigmatized and slandered by his hireling tools; but itis a matter ol consolation, tliatin every in stance heretofore, justice has been meted out to the slanderer. So it will be now." After reading these extracts, if any whig is scamp enough to repeat the infamous libel, he would rob hen roosts, or open graves at midnight and steal the shroud that encircles the dead. We shall notice one more of the reckless statements of these perambulating, loafing, fed eral popinjays of Wheeling, and we are done. Wo have extended our notice of their speeches already too far; but while we refute their asser tions particularly, it will also servo as a refuta tion of similar statements, when made by other Clay orators. One of them said that Gov. Polk, when in Congress, invariably voted against grant ing pensions t') old Soldiers, who had fought the battles of their country. Now, the Journal of the House of Representatives itself is the best refuta tion u,e can offer in relation to the matter. From those Journals wo copy what follows. It will be seen that in evory instance, Gov. Polk's' votes prove him to bo tho unswerving friend of those who had fought and bled in defence of their country, while Mordecai Hartley, the federal can didate for Governor in Ohio, and the federal mem bers from this State, invariably voted against the scar-worn veterans who fought our country's bat tles: ' 3 3 3 3 m In House of Representatives, Thursday April The House proceeded to the consideration of the bill for the relief of the surviving officers of the ARMY OF THE REVOLU HON.

We have now scattered to tho four winds eve ry argument and charge of these imported crea tures from Virginia. We would advise them if they desire hereafter to exhibit theit long ears before the people of Harrison county, to pay some little regard to truth and decency. They should at all events endeavor to mix one gra in of truth with the bushel of falsehoods they may measure out, and then they might probably find some poor deluded, benighted coon, fool enough to place some little reliance on their assertions. MOKE RIOTS A1VD BLOODSHED IN PHILADELPHIA. There has been another alarming riot in Phil adelphia. The demoniac spirit of Mobism has been again at woik. An outrageous attempt was made to destroy the St. Philipe de Ncri Church, by the Federal Native American Party, in which it appears fire arms were deposited.

" I'ltblic Debt of tlie l'ni(Ht -r:itc. Every whig stumper from Maiua to Georgia, asserts, when speaking of the Debt of the United States, that Mr. Van Luren left tho Presidential ('hair with an enormous National Debt hanging over the people of this country, and that it requi red all the financial skill of the whigs to extri cate the Government from this great debt. But what are the facts! By the tables below, which are oflkial, it will bo seen (hat the whig! in cieased, instead of decreased the debt. In obedience to a resolution of the Senate of the 23rd of December, 1S41, the Secretary of the Treasury, Mr. W. Forward, transmitted the following statement, prepared by the Register of the Tieasury, of the amount of the public debt on the 3d of March, 1341, when the whigs camo into power.

T. L. SMITH, Register." By tho above tables it will be seen that the whigs while in power, increased the national debt to the round sum of EIGHTEEN MIL LION, THREE HUNDRED AND SIXTY THREE THOUSAND, EIGHT HUNDRED AND NINETY DOLLARS, AND EIGHTEEN CENTS. This certainly looks but little like re trenchment. Not only was the general government but lit tle in debt when the whigs came into power, but there was over half a million of dollars in tho treasury on tho 3d of .March 1841. Theso aro facts which the whigs cannot deny. Spirit of Democracy. Or Col. Polk is not only not a duellist, but was instrumental, more than twenty years ago, in procuring the passage of a penal statute against duelling iu Tennessee, which has had the effect of arresting the practice in that State altogether. Not an occurrence of the kind has disgraced the State since its passage. Home Industry. Col. Polk says: "Home Industry," a term so ofien used by the advocates of the protective tariff system, is comprehensive in its meaning; and by a just legislation should be made to embrace the industry employed in agriculture, in the mechanic arts, in commerce, and all other pursuits, as well as the industry employed in mauufacturcs.
