As Mr. Clay said "If we cannot have black slaves we will have white ones!" Read! Read!!! "ENCOURAGING HOME INDUSTRY. The Boston Post says: Tne Canadian papers state that several agents of the Lowell manufacturers are in that country for the purpose of hiring females to work in the Lowell mills, and have engaged a large number for that purpose. This is the good faith of the manu facturers who are so clamorous lor a tariff to support the operatives ol our own country.' . They have got the protection desired by government, and now to make their profits still larger they discharged the American operatives, and travel into the provinces of Queen Vic toria to import others who will work for lower wages and be less independent than those who have been raised underline tree institutions ol our country." Is it any wonder that the working people every where are turning from'whiggery as insincere and corrupt! Read the above once again, and then say, what is the sincerity of the coons when they talk of foreign pauper labor and American labor. Give these pusy, over grown and pampered manufactures high tariffs and e- normous profits, and then you will see them grasping and imperiously trampling on the American laborer. They are made up of hypocrisy, and politics, and hatred of the working people, whorh they crush just in propor tion to the power given then them by exclusive and un equal legislation, banker like. Ohio? Statesman. TOM FOOLERY. If the following from the Baltimore Patriot, is a fair specimen of the ridiculous torn foolery of the starehed leaders of tha federal party a great mim, a oreat ox, and a GREAT COON, make up a federal proces sion. DISTINGUISHED ARRIVALS. Among those that may be looked for at the May Con vention, will be one of the largest and best 'men in Vir ginia, the largest and most splendid ox, and an elegant Clay colored coon, all from Hardy county, o! the An cient Dominion. We learn also that many patriotic Whigs in the Respective counties of Maryland, have it contemplation to send forward a number of choice cat tle, sheep, bacon, 4c, which will be served up in such style as cannot fail to meet the taste of our visitors from abroad on this occasion. TRUTH FROM A WHIG SOURCE. The New York Plebeian says: Van Brrcr aVd Clat. The Newburyport Herald, awhig paper, speaking of the next Presidential election very significantly remarks: "If the battle is to be foueht in 1844 between Mr. Van Buren and Mr. Clay, we have no doubt, and never have had but very little, as to the result. It will be the reverse ot 1810, ana it will be brought about by the votes oi not icaa iiiau iu,iaaj ciuitus in iuc vauous parts ui uie u- nion, woo Will vote for Mr. Van Buren, not in reality because they like him and his policy, but because they uisiihc mm less man mr, uiay. The same sentiments are expressed by many of the most knowing ofthewhigs. They regret that their par ty is so deeply committed in favor of the nomination of a man who cannot be elected. TRIAL OF MR. DORR FOR TREASON. The Rhode Islander, printed at Newport, March G, says: "The court met yesterday morning and commenced the reenter term. Mr. Dorr came into court and with drew the plea filed by his -counsel on Thursday last, & made a speech expressing his earnest desire for a speedy trail, and protesting that he withdrew the aforesaid plea, contrary to the advice of his counsel, in consequence ol the long time allowed by the court to the attorney gen eral to file an answer to it, which made it almost im possible, il that plea was continued that be could have his trial at this term, and he wished to make it evident that he desired an immediate trial. The court took un til afternoon to consider it, and fix a day. P. S. After 8 P.M., the court announced that the trial shall take place in this town on Friday, the '26th of April next." Goon Sfcsk. A subscriber to the Columbian Reg liter, in Kentucky, on remitting pay for his paper, says: "I do not know where I shall be at the next presiden tial election nor whether I shall be a voter anywhere; but if I am alire, though 1000 miles from the nearest poll, or a habitable dwelling, I mil set my hat en the near est stump, and deposite a ballot fur ike "sage of Linden- waldV if for no other reason, than as a mere act of justice to one who was basely defrauded of his election four years ago. That vow was made the day I knew of his defeat; and by heaven I'll keep it!" Good Again. Some of the coons up north say they won't vote for the old man Bartley for coon Governor "no how," that his nomination was a loco trick he would resign, if elected, and then his son Tom might be Governor and Tom being a full blooded democrat, they would gain nothing by him, so they might as well vote for Dave Tod at once! Sensible at last. Diamonds which the rich only can buy, pay a du ty under the whig Tariff of only seven per cent., while iron, from which the tools of every farmer and mechan ic are made, is taxed by the same tariff no less than thirty per cent. Facts like these need no oom- ment. -. ' A TotJcii Yarn The Picayune tells a story of clergyman who lately read the following; lam requested to state, that immediately after service this evening, there will be a horse race just back of the church, two mile heat, for a purse of three hundred dollars; two nags en tered, and tome hopes of another. I trust you will all be there." . Diffidence. A man gets along faster with a sensible married woman in two hours than with a young girl in whole days. Il is next to impossible to make them talk, or to reach them. They are like a green walnut; there are half a dozen outer coats to bt nulled off, one by one and slowly, before you reach the kernel of their characters. DREADFUL AFFAIR IN BALTIMORE A BOY ALMOST EATEN EY HERE DRIES BACH'S LEOPARD. We learn from the Baltimore Sun of Saturday, thct during a round of a part of the company attach to the Front street circus, through'the streets of thu city, ac companied with a band of music, and Herr Dricsbach with a leopard from the menagerie the cavalcade halted at Dix & Fogg's Fountain Hotel, in Light street; Dries bach, with the leopard in his arms, alighting and going ioto the hotel After a short stay, a passage was made for their e gress, and Driesbach bearing the animal before him, its head crouched upon his right arm, came out; but as he was passing from the door to the carraige a boy was either pushed from the throng on the pavement, or stum bled with his head directly egainst the nose of the leop ard, and in an initdnt the aaimal darted forth his pawi seized the boy by the cheek and, burying his claws in the flesh, drew his head into his jaws. With an alacrity and daring that does credit to the courage and presence of mind of Driesbach, he instant ly thrust his hand into the leopard's mouth and jamming it down his throat, all three fell to Ihe pavement together-, Ihe leopard, however, would not release his hold and the screams of the boy, together with the excitei ment, cries and alarm of thecrowd, the growlingof the snimal, and the startling and peremptory demands of Driesbach for a knife, caused a scene of the most ihtil' ing horror, and the combatants, as a matter ot course, had a wide fieldfor ths struggle, ample scope having been afforded them by the receding throng. Before a knife could be brought, however, Driesbach by thrusting bis hand down the leopard's throat, succeed ed in choking him sufficiently to extricatetlie boy's head when he released his own hand and lodged the danger ous animal in the carraige. The boy was then taken into the hotel, when, upon examination, it was found that his cheek was severely lacerated, a "'gash of about three inches in length having been inflicted apparently by the animal's claws, and some minor wounds existed about the scalp towards the back part of the nead. A warrant was issued at the suit of the boy's father, for the arrest of Herr Driesbach. Later. Here Driesbach was held to bail in the sum of $1000. A civil action for $5000 damages wai com menced by the father of the boy,: $300 having been offer ed and refused, to compromise the matter. Phil. Times From the Steubenville Union. COUNTRY PAPERS. The loading democratic papers are alive to lite true interests of their party. We have lately noticed in sev eral whig papers, earnest appeals for the support of the country press. They well know the necessity of ha ving home papers to attend to home matters. The great security for success is in good and thorough organiza tion throughout the country, A great part of the or ganization is an efficient press, which shall not only manfully defend our principles and disseminate facts, but also expose the misrepresentation and evil machina tions of our opponents. Eastern papers which have extensive circulation throughout the Union, are doubtless good in advocating our principle, and will retail, in the smallest minutia,all the crimes and vices of the larger cities. But what care they, and how is it possible for them to attend to our country affairs, and country organization) They have their own work at this kind to attend to. Persons who prefer knowing how their political friends in the eastern eities are managing their part of the contest, to home discipline, and who are not zealous of succeeding at home, perhaps may do best to take a foreign paper, and'thereby suffer their own at home, to languor and die. Let the people arouse to the necessity, and 'support the country press. It will then be conducted with more spirit, and be more deserving support. Our elections will be conducted more as a contest of reason and prin ciple. And victory will be muchmore certain to crown our efforts. "Another tiocofood Lie." he venerable Ex-President, Johh'&: Adams, gave large and interesting party at his residence last even ing. Many ol the most distinguished public men in the city were present, and amongthera Lord Ashburton, the Ambassadors ol the several foreign Governments, rep resented in the city, Mr. Clay, and several distinguished members o'. the two Houses in Congress. A large par ty of ladies were also present, and the evening passed off pleasantly, with music, dancing, and a social oamf. op cards. At one of Vie CARD TABLES mere Lord Ashburton, Mr. CLAY, Mr. Bodiscoe, the Russia Minister, and Mr. Crittenden four very dis tinguished men, whiting away their time very pleasantly, but not very profitably, perhaps some will say. It was, however, hula SOCIAL GAME OF CARDS, with nothing worth naming at stoic !!!! " An old coon, who had just read the preacher's certifi cate that Mr. Clay had not played at a game of hazard or thirty years, and of course very willingly believed it, came across the above, and the caption at the head is the epithet he applied, and with which assurance he re lieved his conscience. Unfortunately, however, a neigh bor had read the authority and found it to be the coon organ in 1842, The New York Express. That old coon holed). HORRIBLE STEAMBOAT DISASTER FROM FIFTY TO SEVENTY LIVES LOST! "On the morning of the 1st of March, about 9 or 10 o'clock, the steamboat Buckeye, ascending Red river, came in collision with the Desoto descending, and the former sank immediately the hull out of sight. The cabiu floated off and was towed ashore by the Desoto, From 50 to seventy lives supposed to have been lost, When the Grey Eagle passed the Desoto at Ruth's or Red River Landing, there were 5 dead bodies on her, which were taken out of the Buckeye's cabin 2 ladies and 3 children. The Buckeye is said to have been crowded with passengers, many of whom were on their way home, after witnessing the gathering in New Or leans, on the 22d ot February." "On the night of the 29th of February, the Nathan Hale struck a snag ascending Red river, about sixty miles up, and broke to pieces immediately. Total loss. Cin.

It closed its session this morning sbou . six o'clock, and most of the member are on their road home. There is much, very much on record, that will r&juire a seriou and thorough investigation, to be set tled at the bar of public opinion. After being up preny much all lastnight, wedonot feel disposed logo into a general review ot the subject to-day, but will attend to it in due season. In consequence ol the different political construction of the two Houses, and the federalists com. ing here believing as though they held all power in their hands, the democrats had an ardous and delicate task to perform, and never did men bear themselves better, and never have we witnessed the close of a session where friends parted with more good feeling, more cdnfidence in the bright future, or belter convinced that their action, as a whole, was sustained by public sentiment. They lelt determined to rally as one man, and save the State from the grasp of such a man as Henry Clay, and its honor from the discretion of his corrupting princi ples. - The federalists, or coons, as they delight to te called, (and we always like to call men by their acknowledged names,) left with every symptom of confusion, dejection and disaffection with one another. In fact, the leaders of the party in the House wore wholly prostrate during this morning's session, which commenced at two hours alter midnight. They were completely in the minority, an ominous forerunner oftheopeningof the next session- Their highr.opes and supercilious airs of the first of- December were not there their brag and threats were not heard: but on every whig face might be seen the workings of universal disquietude, and the lears of meeting a dissatisfied and disappointed constituency. And we believe everv vhig about the State House felt the same ill forebodings. A good many of the whig members seemed to act as though they were serft here but for two special objects J3r create Banl;s andfighl the Stale Printer It was a true remark of a Roman Consul that those make most pledges tell the most lies; and we think the whigs, the real genuine tinpan whigs of this session, are the men the Roman Consul had in his mind's eye at the time. Ohio Statesman. Clay, Bcas&ud Moselyt These travelling mountebank are going it in the South from town to town, and the people, everywhere, break forth in disgust at their conduct.

If Moseiy would cmd back to this city and pay his debts, (us, among othersj fbr printing, &c.,) it would be more creditable to coonery. We find, in the Richmdnd Eh'quirer, the following rh&st disgraceful and horrible avowal of Bear. Has Mr. Clay taught him to repeal such monstrous things to cover over his bloody work in that murderous affair. Hear ib , "The 'Columbia (Georgia) Times' of the 28th ult., whose editor heard these strangling players in the neigh boring city of Montgomery, giyes another evidence of the taste displayed by Bear in his speeches. 'He spoke of the death of Cilley, and said that he was so much re joiced at his death that he Illuminated his house when lie heard of it. We are glad to have it in our power to sav. that every whig We have heard speak of it, have done so in terms ol indignation and disgust; and when he spoke on the next day, we believe ne bad a tmn house."

NUMBER threb. The following scrap of history is taken from Ihe old files of one of the Pittsburgh whig papers. Mr. Denny in at this time one of the whig candidates for the Vice Presidency on the ticket with Mr. Clay. 'Washington, Feb. 14, 1833. "From the proceedings in the Senate vou will see that Clay has hft his Tariff friends and has united vritk Cal houn. The project submitted by Mr. Clay is believed to have previously received the approbation of Mr. Calhoun. SOMK THINK IT ORIGINATED WITH THAT INDIVIDUAL.

Jackson will not agree to abandon the principle ol discrimination, neither will Mr. Van Buren's friends. Yours, sincerely." HAKMAll DENNY, Let the 'coons talk of consistency, and then look at the above. "He abandons discrimination," declares Mr. Denny. Yet the worshipers of Mr. Clay now swear that he has always been for one and the same thfhg! Is he tuns for discriminating duties, or is he not! In 1832 we have Mr. Denny's testimony that he abandoned his friends and left them to the mercy of such free traders, as Jackson and Van Buren. iVcts Lisbon Patriot. Homeopathic Sour. A great many good jokes have been cracked at the expense of the Homeooathists; but we do not recollect one more telling than the following recipe for making Horaeopathist soup, attributed to the Brooklin Advertiser to the late Dr. Post, of New York city:- ''-.' "Take two starved pigeons, hang them by a string in the kitchen window so that the sun will cast the shadow of the pigeons into an iron pot already on the fire, and which will hold ten gallons of water, boll the shadows over a slow fire for ten hours, and then give the patient one drop in a glass of water every ten days." The following we find in the Sidney Flag: "THE CAMPAIGN OPENED. "The truly dlgnifledand patriotic mercchant, lawyer, and doctor koons of this village assembled en masse, to the number of thirteen, at the court house on last Satur day; got a lame boy twelve years of age to sing one of their delightlul hen-roost ditties, and adjourned, A re these the men who talked of spoons'!

Mr. Clay, stays so little at home, that we susflt he : thinks, be has no "honor in his own land," but tnt seek it elsewhere. Ee this as it may, there is one thing quite certain that the recent attempts in Kentucky to "expungz" his "bargain and-lntrigue," with old incen diary Adams, whoheofic denounced ami afterward gave the "hug fraternal," without settling the "adjourn ed case of. veracity" between Ihem, has proved to te a . perfect failure; history has put Ihe "fair business trans- - r action" between these high contracting parties wilh the irrcfragible truths and chain of circumstance connect ed wilh the same upon her pages, there to stand' as an . eternal monument of political corruption. We find the tollowing in th? proceedings of a Demo cratic meeting lately held in Mr. Clay' State. Resolved, That we regard the union of Mr. Adam arid Mr. Clay in 1325, by which they ascended into po litical power and office, as among the most remarkable coalitions ever made by violent political opponents and rivals for office and fame. Resolved, That we cannot hold Mr. Clay excused lo1' voting for Mr. Adams in violation of the instructions of the Slate of Kentucky, by the lame apology that "it was a choice ol evils between Mf Adams and Cen. Jack son. "The apology might have some we ght in it, if Mr. Adams afterwards, in his appointment of Secretary of State, had been confined to a similar choice of evils; which compelled him to appoint Mf. Clay, a rival can didate & rival political enemy. He was free and unfe tteerd in his choice, having ihe whole Union from which to make a selection; and passing over a host of distin guished names, he appointed Mr. Clay to the first office! within his gift, having a few days before received the? office of President at ihe hands of Mr", Clay; thus verify-' ing lo the very letter the charge made previous to the e--lection thai Mr. Clay would make Mr. Adams Pre- sident, and Mr. Adams make make Clay Secretary o State. i 1 lilting Sarcasm.

An old bruiser was asked by a certain Judge why he persisted in the use of ardent spirits, when he re plied "You see, I get up in the morning, and I have pain in the abdomen, and I have to take a small horn; and in a little while, thinking a second dose will effect a cure, I . take it, and the two get to quarrelingI then have to send down another as umpire, this creates a further (lis- -pute, and then I have to send down a jury of twelve,, and by that time I am sent down myself."
