GREAT MEETING AT DETROIT GENERAL CASS. Weleara from the "Daily Free Press," that an im mense rati&catioa meeting was held in that city on the 3d inst., and among tbe speakers we find the name of Gen. Cass. The Press says: "Whenever the name of JAMES K. POLK was pronounced by the speakers it was cheered ia a manner, by the audience, which could not fa u. to convince every one in the hearing of their voices, that there is enthusiasm, dep and heartfelt in our party, in the mass of th peoflt. Never belore have the Democraey of this city, asa body, been so well pleased with th result of any convention; as they now are at the result of the Baltimore Democratic Conven tion! The enthusiasm, goad fesling., and determined spirit of the democracy struck terror into 'the ranks of our opponents. They were sadly disappointed to see the unanimity; the brotherly feelings of the party in this city, when the nominations were known."' Afler the organization of the meeting, Anthony Ten Eyok, Esq., offered a series of resolutions, complimen tary of the nominees of the Baltimore Convention; rati- fying-and confirming their nominations and pledging the Derooaracy-of the city to give them their united, zeal ous and cordial support. Tbe resolutions were received and subsequently passed by acclamation. After, a few brief and spirited remarks by Mr: Ten-Eyck he closed, by announcing to the meeting, the presence of our own distinguished fellow citizen, Gen. Lewis Cass. On this announcement, three hearty cheers fat Cass braight the war-worn veteran, to. the rostrum. GEN. CASS said he had oome here this evening to take part in the proceedings, to express his hearty con currence in the nomination made by the Baltimore De mocratic Convention, and to announce his- determina tion, faithfully to support it. He said tbe crisis through which the Democratic party bad just passed, bad served but the better to prove the integrity ol its principles, and the internal; strength, of its saus. After many differen ces of opinion, differences, however about men, and not about measures, the choice of the Convention had unan imously fallen upon a man irreproachable in private life, and who in various public stations, had given proof of great firmness and ability, of incorruptible in tegrity, and of a sincere devotion to those principles, which the Democratic party -deem essential to the pros perity of our country, and the perpetuation of her free in stitutions. 1 know bim well, said Gen. Cass, and I know he will fulfil the expectations of his friends, and fully justify the confidence of the party. Nothing now is wanting to ensure success,. but united exertion, and that we must, and.will have. Let us put behind us the divisions and preferences of the past, and join in one common effort, to promote the triumph, of our cause. Victory is in our power, and let us attain it. Let every one feel, and fulfil his duty. I am so persuaded that uch will be the general sentiment and aciion-ot the par' ty, that I confidently predict that JAMES K. POLK will be the next President of the United States, and il he is, I know he will follow in the focsteps of Wash ington, of Jefferson, of Madison, and of General Jack son. The General, was frequently interrupted in the course of his remarks by. the loud bursts of applause from all present. ' Yesterday was indeed a proud day, forth Democra cy of Detroit During the afternoon of the day 100 guns were fired in honor of the nominees, and as the thunder tones of the cannon spoke out the determined and joy ous voice oi the democracy, while they unfurled their banner to the breeze, federal-Clay-Coonery stopped its ears, and heaved a deep drawn sigh, as she felt and saw the first nail driven and clinched in her ooffin.

A GRAPHIC PICTURE. Every body remembers the duel between Clay and Randolph, but the origin of it is not so generally known. The eccentric Virginian, in secret session-, in I825 made one of hi terrible speeches, in which he cut the character ot Clay to shreds. The vietim could not an swer, but sought revenge through a challenge. Ran dolph, pointing his long finger at him, said: "This man, (mankind, I crave your pardon,) this worm, (little animals forgive the insult,) wa spit out ofthewombof meanness was raised to a higher life than he was bom to, lor he was raised to the society of blackguards. Some fortune -kind to him cruel to us; has tossed him to the Secretaryship of State. Contempt has the property of descending, but she stops far short of him.

Their caricature had been prepared in anticipation of the choice of Martin Van Bnren their prose in opposition to the sage of Linden wald, and their poetry in ridicule of the Kinderhook lbx all of which were instantly swept to the winds, and must be charged to Whig profit and loss. I also un derstand that thousands and thousands of documents, speeches, handbills, pamphlets,, and newspapers, expo sing the votes of Van Buren in the New York State Convention on the right of suffrage his position in the Caroline affair his opposition to the annexation of Texas the numerous defaulters appointed under his administrationi-his defeat in 18-10 -reasons in favor of one term only his contradictory views on the tariff, etc., &c., were prepared in Washington, many of them packed, sealed, and ready franked to send from one end of the Union to.the other, as soon as his name was ushered from the Convention.

I GAIN THE PROOF FURNifefcEtfTO THE JOURNAL: j . , Th Jouva'al 0ff Tuesday asserted that tbe democrats had no authority for asserting that Henry Clay used the vulgar and blasphemous expression to Mr. Polk, which he is charged with using. Tbe following certificate from Mr. Ghhlson, who at the time was a member of Con gress from Mississippi, must coavirice the Joitrrial that its-editor reckoned without his bust. Clay did use the language, and here is the proof it A REMINISCENCE. "Being called orf,' I deem it my duty to state that 'yes terday, in the-lldttse : ol' Representatives, immediately afler the Speaker (James K. Polk) gave the casting vote on the Mississippi election question, the Hon. Henry Clay, looking in the direction ol the Speaker, exclaimed GO HOME, GOD DAMN Y'OU! WHERE YOU BELONG!" These epithets were uttered jost as the Speaker gave his vote. Mr. Clay was standing within the Western entrance to the Hall, and close to the bar of the House. I was standing within five feet of Mr. Clay. Mr. Chaney, of Ohio, silling in his seat, was so near Mr. Clay that he heard his remark, and imme. diately committed U to writing, Mr. Gallup, of New York, was standing near, and heard the same remark very distinctly. "5. J. GHOLSON. "Washihgtoh, Feb. C, 1838." If the Journal, after reading ihe above, is still of the opinion that we have no authority for making the charge, we will procure the certificate ol the Hon. Jchn Chaney, of Fairfield county, who committed the words to writing immediately after they fell lrom the lips ot Clay, provided the Journal will publish the certificatej alter we procure it. The character ol Judge Chaney is too well known to bur citizens, as an honest and honor able man to need tn endorsement from us; and we a- gain repeat that we will procure his certificate ot the facts, provided the Journal will puolish it While the editor of the Journal is denying the lact ot Clay's vulgarity and blasphemy, would it not be well for him also to deny that Henry Clay is now under bond to keep the peace, and to prevent him from fighting duel with a Senator for words spoken in debate, vv e are anxious again to publish a copy of the bond, and wish the Journnko draw it out bv a denial. Can we be gratified! THE OLD "COALITION" PARTY IN THE FIELD!, That the present party in the field, we mean the lea ders, are the old "coalition" concern, there cannot be a doubt, the ear marks are on every, one of them. First Ihe "War, pestilence and famine" Clay the "Safe pre- cedent" Secretary of Stale, is the captain. John duincy Adams -He who said the representa- live should not be paralyzed by the will of his constitu ents," is another of the band, and Daniel Webster, the man who "would rather see the enemies' cannon bat tering down the Capitol," than pas an appropriation bill then before the Senate,, is another.. This is the old corrupt, rotten concern that now. asks the American people to. reverse their verdict! Sons to condemn the their sires the men of 1828 to eat their words and declare that these oft condemned political criminals, are now, "all, honorable men" Will sell-respect bow her head, and humbly crave these gentlemen's pardons? Will the sons of 18-28 brand the memories ot the Democrats of those days, with doing injustice to the "war, pestilence and famine candidate" the hero of the bargain and corruption" the man. who has since de clared "war to the knife," and so far as he hasbeen able has kept his word the man, who, in the language of the Hero of the Hermitage, has travelled through the country, "slandering the living, and the dead!" Will he Republicans meanly and slavish like, endorse the Federal doatrine, "that the representative should not be held responsible by his constituents." Will the Patriot endorse the Blue Light Federal, Webster's characterl We are confident they will not there is yet left uncor- runied, enough solf-rospeot; enough of republican spirit and firmness enough- of patriotism to say to each of these men, "stay at home, where you belong! FteaD. Great damage has been done by the flood ih the Ar kansas river. The town of Van Buren, at the last dates, was almost entirely overflowed. The- Little Rock Gazette; of tbe 5th inst, says: "The river ha been on a stand fbr the last ten hours. It has been six or eight inches higher than the April rise. The place of Mr. WoodrufTis almost destroyed. His loss will'bc, we regret to say, very great. Many of bis buildings have been swept away, and the most valuable one of all is now apparently falling into the river. One end has sunk down into theriver. The damage produced by this flood it is impossible to estimate; but' it is ruinous on all the low lands. Probably a million of dollars would not cover the loss of the Stale." MICHIGAN. The Detroit Free Press says: "We have yet to hear of a man in our party, who is not satisfied with the re sult of the Baltimore convention. There Is none such; none can be fount1 in this city, who will not say, under the circumstances, that the nominations are the best that could have been made. All feel satisfied, and feel determined to conquer. We say to the democracy a- broad, that Michigan will do her. duty. She is demo cratic to the core, and her democracy are big with hope, that the other portions of th union feel the same spirit and enthusiasm. that is fell here. If they do, the ides of November will witness the wreck of whiggery. making her last trip for salt river. DARING EXPED1TION.-A Spaniard named 8antmanati, with a number of his own countrymen and a few Amerioans, left N. Orlean a few days since, in tending to land on thecoastiofiMextoe, and declare a gainst the Government. They were well 'provided with arms and munitions, and desperately determined on el feeling a revolution. This is certainly a romantic ex- peditionfor 1844, and may have a very romantic deter mination.

Had I discovered, among those standard' resolutions, a rule of conduct, legislative or executive, with which, ia a material feature, my mind refused to' accord, I could not, without being inexcusably disinge nuous, have consented to become the candidate of th party as whose cteed they were justly and lairlypro." claimed.

In order to keep up the spirits of the Whigs, which have fallen so immeasurably low since the nominations made by tbe Democratic National Convention, the ever ready genius of the New York Tribune, has been figur ing out a statement which gives that State to Clay. Thisstatement has oaJised the Herald man to. some out and expose its falacy, and particularly, that part which claims the city of New York by 2000 for Clay. The- whole statement bears upon its face the features of a. game of brag, which the Whigs know very well howto play. The Plebeian says: "Our friends who are well conversant with the feel ings of the people in this State, claim a majority lor Polk and Dallas of from 15 to 20,000) but we are of the opinion it will be nearer 30,000! And we now ask our readers to note what we say, and see whose predictions come nearest the truth, the Tribune's or our own. The-' great body of the industrious agriculturalists and me chanics of this State are opposed to a United States--Bank, a distribution of the land proceed among the States, and all other Federal schemes to rob honest in4 dustry of its just reward. And they will manifest their , opposition next fall through the ballot box. We do not believe the Federalists can lay pipe enongh to defeatithe honest Democratic voters in this State, though Dr. Dun. can's One Day Election Bill should be defeated in a- Whig Senate.." FACTS FOR THE PEOPLE. Proclaim it in the 'ears ot a virtuous people, that: ' Henry Clay's "bloody hand" caused the murder of C1U ley, and that he tried to quiet his conscience by saying : would "only be nine days' talk!" Proclaim it in the ears of every coon in the land, that' Henry Clay, by a base coalition with John &. Adamsh cheated Gen. Jacksorrout of the Presidency in 1824, & that too, afler he had been instructed to vote for Gener al Jackson. v Proclaim it in the ears of every working man in the. land,, that Henry Clay said: "If gentlemen will' not allow us to- have black slaves they mu6t let have white one!; . for we cannot cut our fire.u wood and black our shoes, and nave our wives and' daughters work in the kitchen. Proclaim it in the ears of every honest man ih the - country, that Gen. Harrison said: "I have done him (Mr. Clay) many favors, but he has returned them alt with the blackest ingratitude;" and he also said: " I will do my duty, even if Mr. Clay is to be benefitted by it i from whom I have experienced only ungenerous treat ment, in requital for year of devoted service!" N. Y Plebeian. &CAT OUT OF- THE BAG . A New York Whig paper thus lamentsdisunion in the Federal ranks I from its union with Nativsism.
