WHO SHALL B OUR PRESIDENT? The people must decide. We think lite nomination of Mr. Clay by the Whigs b an Insult to theft own par ty, Ho ay nothing of the Democracy. Fout years ago they thought him too unpopnlai to ntn. As he has nut twanged, the, Whig leader niirst have supposed that now the people had altered their minds, or lust their memories If h was not safe to ma Mr.' Clay four years ago, what mates it alb now! This question Las not been- answered. Who will vote for ITenry Clayt This is a question easily answered. Every old Hart lord convention Federalist, Who hajflwt' changed his tluelight principles, will vote fur flearjr - Clay! When you Cad a.ma who was a Federalist once, and is now a Democrat, he will tell you fhat he became convinced . that he was on the wrong side, and changed his opin- ijns. There are a lew, a very few such. But among the great mass of Federalism who now eaH themselves Whigs, yon can not find one who will admit that he has changed at all, and he would be telling a falsehood if he said he had. Federalism and the Whig party are iden tical the same thing, and every unchanged Federalist will vote for Clay. Every Unite States Bank man will vote for Clay. He has shown his devotion to that institution too often to make his course in relation to it a matter' of (Toubt. He nrged the passage ef !he fifty mifiion Bank at the Extra"Session. He has put a National Bans: lorwara boldryasoneof the measwes of his party, tie did not call it "National currency" m bis speech at Raliegh, but a National Bank. So all who wish- to have another rral of that "obsolete idea," all whose palms are itch ins lor its subsidies, all who wish to engage in the spec Ulatipns engendered by its regulating movements all who wish lor a succession of seasons of fictitious pros perity and terrible revulsions, will vote fot Clay. Let us trust that those who would live in tins exciting gam bler's life, are very few, compared with the masses who are content with the sure and steady gains of honest industry. .--', Every raam who wishes for an aristocracy, and thinks he wcwld or might belong to it, will vote lor Clay. All who admire the government and social condition of England, with her nobility and aristocracy forming a daazlihg constellation of wealth and magnificence, while her millions are suflering from nakedness, Hunger, darn ness, and despair. All the admirers of this state ol things, unfledged boys aiid bread-and-butter misses whose ideas of society are drawn from English novels of high life, will ol course be in favor ol Mr. Clay and the party whose whole system of measures is calculated to bring abeut sueh a state of things, gratilying no doubt to the wealthy and exclusive few, but full of mis ery for the hard-working many. All who are in favor of adding power to capital and depressing labor, will vote for Clay, and assist in carry ing out Whig measures. The distribution ot the pro ceeds of the poor, and at the same time increase by mil lions the profits of the stockholders in our manufactur ing establishments. The tendency of a high restrictive and protective tariff has been and must be to shut up for eign markets, Crrppteoir commerce, raise the price of nearly all that the agriculturist is obliged to- buy, and lower the price of all that he has to sell, and those who "are u lavor of paying more and receiving less, wilt bring it about by voting the Whig ticket. We appeal lo the experience of every farmer il this is not true. We appeal to the laboring men of this country tosay wheth er the effect of Whig measures for the last three yea rs lias not bees rather to turn the current ot national wealth into the coffers of the lew, than to distribute it among the many. Here Is the great point. The nation is growing in wealth faster than ever a nation was since the, world began. The Whig doctrine is, the fewer this wealth is confined to the better, and all their measures seem to have that object in view. The democratic doc trine is "equal rights and equal privileges." Democrats do not believe in benefiting a few at the the expense ol the many, and so will not vote for Mr. Clay. The private character of Mr. Clay is nothing in com parison with these great principles of Government and political economy. Federalists, ban men, the aristo cracy, speculators, and the small breed of dandies, who think monarchy, or the nearest approach we can have tok, decidedly the thing; who detest the vuigar rabble, whose labor supports them in idleness; who call every hard-handed and brown-faced son of toil a "dem'd dem ocrat;" all these will vote for Mr, Clay, without regard to his character or rather, bis vicea are so fashionable thai they wonld not be any objection. If all accounts ' ate true, the yoang gentlemen who confirmed Mr Clay's nomination were not all backward in imitating the vice ' of their bean idol ol an "American gentleman.' In their progress through Baltimore, they literally followed in his footsteps . We have seen who will vote for Mr. Clay, and, con stHated as human nature is, he will get a pretty large ote. The class in lavor of sncb a ma and such prin ciples has beea increasing in this country. The old monster bank reared a large brood of these beautiful birds, The country in 1835 and "36 was- prolific of them. They are in a flutter of agony at the idea of a Democratic administration. They are horrified at the prospert that such an unfashionable man as James K. T. Polk should be elected President a ma whose virtues are more consptchons than his talents, ;; " TVe are sorry to- adu, that beside these, there will be seme honest, well-meaning men, who will, at some not distant ajt,ii4tJt()ttspei)t and be ashamed ofvgting i tor Henry piayj ut, a their vote will not beguile nu n meroua enough (delect him, thev will havejhe satisfac- ' lion ot seeing the eountry safe and happy, and to rejoice that their mistake was not a fatal one.

A ad if these are not enough to clret them, we ma? fiada few more. They willbe furthcoming whecal'cd for. We will give them the votes which elected Andrew Jaekson, after he had been so vilely cheated out ol tin- Presidency in 1801 by Henry Clay, including the glo rious fifty thousand majority ol the State of Pcnnsylva ma. Does any one suppose tbat any ol these win vote for CfayT ' We will give them the votes of every American citi- ten, native or adopted, who resents as an insult to him self or Vi ancestors the proscription of a man for the country ol his birth, or the manner in which he worships his Maker. The lather ef Andrew Jackson, was an Irishman, and the ancestors of James K. Polk were rishmen. Democrats will not insult the land that has given us two such patriots, nor will tliey oppress those ot the same btoed who come here to enjoy the- blessings they have guarded. Who can know that the emigrant family that lands upon onr soil to-day may not bestow upon this country its future hero, statesman, or Presi dent! Will these do?' Wcll we wilf gi ve to Polk and Dal las the suflrages of the honest laboring classes of the country, who see the onlyhope for themselves and their children in the triumph, ot Demonratic principles. They shall have the votes of the farmers, whose interests have beea sacrificed to build up a few aristocratic manufacturers, and who are the snfiering victims of a scheme to shut every foreign market against their produce, and make them the mere serfs of the manufacturing capitalists. And to secure them, beyond all doubt, an overwhelming majority, they shall have the vote of every citizen, who is honest enough to give "equal and exact justice to all men,1 and who has intelligence enough to see that this can only be done by establishing democratic principles throughout the world.

EDWARD McCLURE, Secry'. Canal Dover, Aug. 21, 1841. ' ENGLAND AND THE FEDERAL PART Y UNITED AGAINST TEXAS. The war upon the Union has begun! Great Britain having despaired ot the success of direct hostility againt us, seeks the accomplishment of her designs, by aiding Mexico in subjugating Texas. The hitter power is then to be made a dependency of the British Government, This done, she will have completed the chain with which she is snrmtmdingns. England, as the friends of Texas have always urged, is deeply interested in the determ ination of the Texas question. The virtual con test is not between the U. States and Mexico alone, bat between the United States and Great Britain. The English are more-opposed, if possible, to annexation than the whig party. It willbe seen then- that the dem ocratfe party have lo encounter Mexico, whiggcry, and Great Britain., These then, strongly gympalhyain w ith ea eh other, const I lute a fur mida ble opposit io 1 .

THE HOOSIER STATE ERECT1-DEM0CR A.T IC MAJORITY THIRTY-FIVE 'HUN DRED -INDIANA SAFE FOR POLK AND DALLAS BYFIVE THOUSAND VOTES! Chapman flings his Wings and crows most merri ly again. We have now given the Whigs plenty otlimeto blow off tljeir surplus steam, and the smoke of the battle being cleaved up, we can present some account of the killed & wounded. It will be remembered that the whig papers, in order to rally their broken forces, published a table of false returns, pure fabrications, some of them went so far as to claim 58 Whig Representatives to the Dem ocrats 18 and they claimed Ihe Senate in about an equal ratio. What is the effect of tbisl Why, now that a true statement of the case has come to hand, the heads of the Whigs are all hanging down in despair, while the countenance of the Democrats are bright and railing as a May morning, indicating a full determina tion to accomplish such an overwhelming Democratic triumph in October and November next, as will banish the despotic, unequal and iniquitous principles of Fed eralism tront this glorious Republic for a quarter of a century at least. A correspondent from Indianopolis the capital of Indiana, writes to the Ohio Statesman, that the returns are generally in from all the counties in the State, and they show a decided increase of the popular vote over last year something near fifteen hun dred. The majority ol Whitcomb (Democrat) over Bigger (Whig) was then about two thousand, and the Democratic majority on the popular vote is now increa sed to THREE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED The Indiana State Sentinel of the same date says that INDIANA IS SAFE FOR POLK AND DALLAS BY A MAJORI TY OF FIVE THOUSAND. The Senate stands Democrats 25, Whigs 25, and the Lieu- tenant Governor, who acts as Speaker of the Senate, being a Democrat, it will secure the casting vote for the Democrats. The House stands Democrats 47, Whigs 51, and 2 Independent Wqigs, showing a Whig majori ty of six only, even allowing them the two Independent Whigs elected by Democrats in Vigo county, and Mr. Smith, of Spencer, a Democrat elected by Whig votes, Three Whig Senatbrs and nine Whig Representatives were elected by only TG votes, or an average of about six votes each. The seat ol the Whig Senator from Parke will be contested, and it is said, successfully. Advertiser.

Kentucky, the "Banuet State" of Whiggery, in the campaign of 1810-and which gave Hariisoa near 26,000 majority, has barely elected Owsley, the lederat candi- datd, ail the late election. His majority will not be lour thousand, and it may not reach 3000!! This is a re suit highly gratifying to democrey. It is a damper on Clay's hopes, who must see the folly of running as a candidate before ihe American People, who have before rejected him; and will do so again. The Democrats of Kentucky have fought nobly another such a fight, and coonery is dead dead deadf Let thera again prepare for battle and teach the Dictator that freemen nre not "white slaves" or "black ones" either.

The Globe publishe several letters, cheering from Kentucky, oneof which, says Owsley's majority will be only abom 3,000 votes. Another letter talks really spunky hear! hear! Democrats of Ohio, emulate the spirit of glorious "old Kentuck:" "Now the whigs (poor fellows) talk of Judge Os- . ley's unpopularity, and Col. Bull er's popularily; but the truth is, the presidential question ef Clay or Polk was, at best, the all-absorbing question. Do-not suppose, my , dear sir, lhat your old acquaintances and brother demo- crats in Kentucky mean to give up the November elec- tion. No, sir; we mean, like men, to fight cut this bat tle for liberty, the eonstitution, and Texas, as becomes the descendants of the hunters of Kentucky. Nor is that all. Wc hope wc shall stirccod.

We have received another letter from a distinguished gen ileman.wlio resides in Harrodsbwg. Kentucky, and who knows live politics of the State as well as any man in it, which if the democrats shall carry Pennsylvania at the Gubernatorial election in October, he thinks it will so inspire the Democrats of Kentucky that they will be able to carry Ihe State lor Polk and Danas in November. A change of about 6 per cent, on the whig vote would d it. The Democrats carried Kentucky at the presidential election in 1823, when Mr. Clay s in fluence and power was as great tlien as now. The State elections, immediately preceding, showed that General Jackson would be elected; and now, if they shall show bepond a doubt, as we think they will, that Col. Polk will be plected, we should not be surprised if Kentucky should assist in swelling his majoir-y. Republican. OVA FLAG IS TZXERB A11SS0URI ALL HAIL A SMALL. SPRINKLE OF AN EARTHQUAKE. . From the Missourian Aug. 13. We can safely say to our friends at a distance that Missouri bas once more crushed the hopes of federalism. Whiggery had never dared to hope for success in Mis souri, until treachery began to show itself in the midst ( of our party. The first indications of disaffection in our : ranks gave them the greatest pleasure, and they spared no labor or expense to fan Ihe flame. The result of our election shows that the whigs have unitsd their whole strength with that of the "softs," and yet there is no per ceptible diminution of the democratic majority. The whigs have disgraced themseive by their coalition wiih this little band of traitors, and they have gained nothing by it. Our regularty nominated candidates for gover nor, and Congress, will be elected by a majority of near- ly seven thomand. The Legislature will contain a 1 majority of about 20 on joint ballot of true blue Bento- nian democrats, over whigs and softs combined. The following paragraph from the Republican of yestesday shews that the whigs have "Knocked under." The lie- publican thinks Edward's majority will be 4,000. "We think it will reach 7.000. The Cin. Enq, of Aug 23, gives returns from 58 coun ties, which give a democratic majority of 3,200. The counties to hear from will increase it four thousand more. THE PRAIRIE STATE ON FIRE-1000 GUNS FOR Illinois. The Victory achieved by the Democrats is complete and overwhelming. Democracy has swept over the State like a tornado. Out of seven members o' Congress the DEMO CRATS HAVE ELECTED SIX, and the Whigs one; and so small was the majority &r the one, lhat it remained for a long time in doubt. The particulars' of the State Legislature have not reached us but the report is that the Democratic major, ihj will be from SIXTY TO SEVENTY members. The Washington Globe of Aug. 22. gives the major ities for Congress as follows: Wen ih worth, (dem.) u 3,810 maj. Smith, MeClernand, Ficklin, Douglass, 4,000 4,000 2,000 1,800 1,200 no opposition Hoge, ' Baker, (whig) .700 Tho democratic majority in the State will be about 15,000; showing a democratic gain of about 13.000 on the presidential election of 1840. - Alabama Coons all curled up, by a Democratic Tornado. The Columbus (Geo.) Times of thursday last says: "We have received returns from nearly all the whig counties in Alabama, showing a considerable accession to the democratic rote, and largely diminished majori ties, for the whigs in those counties. There is scarcel) a county heard from', but what the whigs jjos t groundjn ; over preceding elections. When North Alabama is heard from, we confidently hope to-have it in our power to- state that Alabama has given from 8 lo 10,000 maj. for the Democrats. So much lor Mr. Clay's eleclion- ecrin trip through this State. THE GRAND RESULT. Now to sum up who wins and who lesesl Says the Louisville Democrat: "In the late elections the democrats have gainncd in six States, over SEVENTY THOUSAND voles since 1810 to wit: Kentucky about 22.000 Louisiana u ' - 4,500 Indiana 11 19,500 N.

The same loss to the coons and gain to the democrats, in the other States, will ensure the election of Polk by over 200,000 majority. Who would have It better?

In this declina tion ihe Piesidentgoes into an explanalion ol the Texas question al some length, and his vetoes of the Bank bills are referred to Urtih- much satisfaction. He gives a let- Ishoulder to the whigs, for their violent abuse of him, & misrepresentations of the course of policy which he has pursued, and which he is perfectly willing to leave to it to the pen of future and impartial historians.

It is said that "death loves a shining mark" and as there were divers bright rings circling a portion of the' lamen ted coonery, he was, te nse an emphatic phrase, 'bound to get a pop."
