I Mr Clay.—I have lately seen a letter j from this distinguished statesman, in which 1 have noticed the subjoined sen timent: “I thank you. my dear sir, for vour friendly wishes ami feelings towards me. Ifl have been, during my public career sensible of great injustice having been done me, 1 have nevertheless had the consolation ot knowing that I possessed the esteem and confidence of many good men. Above all,! have enjoyed the con sciousness of endeavoring to discharge my duty towards our common country. ‘*1 should be most happy if I coyld out live calamities which have befallen it, and which l have in vain struggled to avert. As for myself personally, 1 wish nothing, seek nothing, expect nothing liom the Public.” He “expects nothing from the Public!” We have indeed, fallen on evil times, when Henry Clay must feel himself ostra cised by his countrymen? And is it so? The cruel persecutions, the unfeeling at tacks, the party rase, in a country he has spent a long life in serving with such distinguished abilities, has banished hope from his bosom. As’an American,! blush for the thought; as a Virginian, when 1 reccollect this peisecuted patriot is one of her native sons, I feel the deepest hu miliation. Virginia, too, “the noble, the Generous Virginia,” was one among the first at the Ostracism! Among the lore most in the cry,“Down with him! Down with him! We are tired of hearing him called the good and the greak” Home’s history might be wiitten, with out illuminating her pages with the treat ness of Cicero. But who could write a correct history of this Republic, for the last thirty years, and obscure the name of Henry Clay? He is identified with all the great e vents, that have agitated his country, in that ume. Long after the names ot the pretty demagogues and party cormorants that have preyed upon his lame shall have passed away,the historian will do him jiMice and brighten w ith his name the annals of his ccuntry. A Virginian. GOING A FISHING. From the Paris Suiibeam. Mr. F itzgig was a valiant bachelor. Abide you yet. abide you yet You little know what’ll betide you yet. Mr Fitzgig made a Mrs. Fitzgig of Miss Serena Pump. The marriage noose will make you fret, And a wayward wife will tame you yet. Mr. Fitzgig had seen manifestations of Miss Seraphina Serena Pump’s energies; for he was present when she took the cat by the tail which had scratched her, whirling it two or three times round her head, and slung it, whizzing and crash ing through the windows into the streets. The lover, however, nothing doubted of his ability to make a good wile of Miss Seraphina. But what is there by sea or land That can a wayward woman stand! Alas for Fitzgig! Fiery ladies may be beautiful, so may a kicking Pony, but tame them if you can. Fitzgig, in two weeks, was metamor phosed into 4konly my husband.” He struggled hard, but who can resist fate?’ ‘I’m going out town a fishing to-mor row, my dear,’ said Fitzgig, as he buck led on his stock before the glass, early one morning; but I’ll be back my darling, soon the next day.* ‘No you don’t, mv love,’ shrieked Mrs. Fitzgig as she sat bolt upright in the bed; I see how it is—tired of your poor wife already, yes, I say tired!’ So Mrs. Fitzgig sprang out of her nest, lifted uo a pitcher of w ater, and smashed U all to pieces on the floor. Fitzgig repeated in tremendous tones, ‘I’m going a fishing!’ The basin followed the pitcher, Mrs. Fitzgig seized the looking glass, ad ejacu lated with a significant glance ‘going a fishing!’ What could fritz do! I he war was unexpected, and he had not calculated the cost. ‘No, I believe I ain’t going a fishing!’ Mrs. Fitzgig saw she had made an im pression. Her military genius whispered to her to follow it up. ‘Ah, you only say that to deceive your poor neglected wife, there’s some mis j tress, that’s the fish, and you want to sneak off.” Now fr'itzgig looked conscience strick. ‘You aie going a fishing, Mr. fr'itzgig,’ said she, and crash went the mirror against the wall. Mrs. Fitzgig commenced dressing, tore the things, upsets the table; whirled the lamp at a picture of the delights of wed ded love, which graced the walis, and with unwashed face, slammed the door and marched down stairs, repeating the words fishing, as she passed. fr'itzgig sat on the side of the bed for an hour like Marius on the ruins of Car thage. At length he sneaked down. ‘Good morning Mr. fr'itzgig—going a fishing Mr. fr'itzgig?’ ‘No dearest Seraphina Serena, I ain’t going a fishing; I want my breakfast.’ ‘No breakfast here, Mr. Fitzgig. Sally and Thomas all gone, gone a fishing, Mr fr'itzgig. If you want breakfast, get it yourself.” The battle was oven Fitzgig, previous ly broken by breakage of the brittle ware up stairs, had little spirits left, and pun ishing him in the bread basket was at tacking him in the tenderest part. He sued her for forgiveness, and after two hours of solicitation she suffered him to kiss her unwashed cheeks. Fitzgig was changed at once into ‘on ly my husband,’ the humblest of all hum ble animals. He fetches and carries, goes errands, lugs band-boxes and bun dles, and smirks and looks dutiful. Before he was broken in, he used now and then to grumble and get sulky; but then Mrs. F. was wont to give him such a look, and whisper in so stern a voice— “Do you want to go a fishing, Mr. Fitz gig?” that—alas lor poor Fitzgig! v i!A..L.nS i-iO. v* — ••' J my new pian i shall be as airy up four pair of stairs as in the country; and in a garden, in the midst of enchanting, more than Mahometan paradise, London, whose dirtiest drab frequented alley, and her lowest bowing tradesman, 1 would not exchange for Skiddaw*, HelvelJyn, James, Walter, and the parson in the bargain.

The w onder of these sights im pel me into night-walks about her crowd ed streets, and I often shed tears in the motley Strand from fullness of joy at so much life.— Letters of Charles Lamb. A Lawyer's Criticism of oHAKSrLAKfc.. [ own that I never perused my chief la vorite, the Merchant of Venice, without a mixture of melancholy to think that it has so many faults, and in particular that the distress turns chiefly upon em barrassments with which no lawyer can seriously sympathise. There are several striking flaws in this drama. In the first place, Antonio’s difficulties arise entirely from his gross oversight in not effecting an insurance upon his various argosies. He should have opened a set of policies at once upon the Kialto, where marine as surance was perfectly well understood, and the brokers would have got him fifty names in a forenoon to any extent upon ship, freight, or cargo, lost or not lost.— This prudential step would have given a totally different turn to the whole affair. When he wanted to help Bassanio with three thousand ducats for three months,he could easily have raised the money, at four per cent., on the security of an as signment to the policy, bhylock says of him, “Antonio is a good man; yet his means are in supposition: he hath an ar gosy bound to Tripolis, another to the Indies; I understand, moreover, upon the Kialto, he hath a third at Mexico, a fourth 1 lor England, and other ventures he hath squandered abroad. But ships are but boards, sailors but men; there be land rats and water rats, water thieves and land thieves; I mean pirates; and then there is the perils of waters, winds, and rock>5.” Now these are the very risks which the contract of insurance is intended to cover, as clearly ex plained in Marshall and our other wri ters, and as expressed in the following clause inserted in all policies: ” Touch ing the adventures and perils which the said assurers are contented to bear, and do take upon them in tins voyage, they are of the seas, men-of-war, lire, enemies, pirates, rovers, thieves, jettisons, &c., bairatray of the masters or mariners, and of afl other perils, losses, and misfor tunes that have or shall come to the hurt, detriment or damage of the said »7onds ! or merchandises, and ship or vessel.”— With this precaution, Antonio’s means I would have been no longer in supposi tion, but in certainty, and as good as hard cash, under deduction, merely, of the premium of insurance. Finally, when | intelligence was received of Antonio’s ! argosies being wrecked, it is plain that ! he might, in the circumstances, have at once abandoned to the underwriters, and claimed for a total loss. It is painful to see so many amiable characters involved in griefs and difficulties, which this sim ple and natural expedient would have obviated. My feelings at this reflection are something akin to those of a very susceptible medical friend, who declares that he can never sit out Romeo and Juliet, from the thought that a judicious use of the stomach pump,in the last scene, j would remove all the distresses, and make two lovers happy .—13 lack wood's Magazine. . . ! Apsexcc of Mind.—An account is m* ven in the New York Courier of this morning, of a sporting man who narrow ly missed a steamboat during a reverie at a hotel, on the banks of the Hudson, rushed to the landing, flung his game bag into the boat, and himself into me river! This is paralleled by a vagrant in Sec ond street this morning, who stole an umbrella, and on being charged with the theft, and made to yield up his spoil, col lected a crowd around him, and delivered an oration, the purport of which w*as that he was insensible of the act, and knew not that he had anything in his hand.— Hissurprise, he said, on being informed of the occurrence, might be conceived, but could not well be expressed.— Phil adelphia Gazette.

V •« S i 1 « c •' ,0 Ok TOL ai.> ministkatjon.—The Globe ushers in, with a prologue of high applause.a letter from Paris professedly wrilen by an American abroad, from which the following extra is taken, ft is an epitome of the consti tutional tents of the late and present ad ministrations and we are not at all sur prised to find it eagerly copied and en dorsed by the official journal. What .'hall we—what can we say of the Ame rican? w ho could thus basely renounce the principles of freedom and write him self down at once, an ass and a slave?— What but that he is fit only to be a slave of slaves— and a servant of dogs. Here is the precious morceau: as endorsed by the official: “Our late President has been much a bused on both sides of the Atlantic for meddling w ith the currency. The right to coin money and establish a uniform ^prrducy, was one of the powers confer red upon the General Government by people of the respective States. If Pre sident Jackson, the chief executive officer of the United States—a man of the peo ple’s own choice—had no right to med - die with the currency—no right to demand specie for the public lands-no J right to wring from the grasp of a Lritish monopoly the public treasure; w hat right have foreign or domestic aristocrats to meddle with the currency?—Whence do they derive the right to change the na ture of the currency altogether from that j indented hy the framers of the Constitu- j lion? Who gave them the right to mo-1 nopolize the public lands by paying for] them with a spurious currency? Let the advocates of the Lank of the United] States answer these questions. “The right to coin money and estab lish a uniform currency is one of the powers of the General Gvvernmeni” and therefore President Jackson, asihat Go vernment—and as “the man of the peo ple’s own choice” has full right to “med dle with the currency,” and to do just what he thought lit in regard to all sub jects relating to it—to issue what imperi al ukases he thought fit. by virtue of his attributes as the “General Govern ment:” These are truely pretty doc trines to proclaim by the mouth piece of 'he executive—by its chosen hetald. Yet no sensibility is manifested ny the people at these strides of prerogative.— They look on with perfect apathy, while such detestable principles are poronigat ed, boldly and impudently paraded by the organ of the Administration lor po pular approval and submission. 1 in* wretch w ho wrote such servile and infa mous sentiments deserves nothing less than to be thrown headlong from the Tarpean rock, when we read such base ness in the tory papers—and observe how little abhorrence is expressed at them— howcooliv the people have learned to receive them—how eagerly they are t choedby theservile crew of the official dependants—an army by themselves— we are almost inclined to adopt the sen timent of Mr Jeffer.-on, that an insurrec tion every twenty years is necessary to preserve the spirit of freedom in any peo ple,” and that “the tree of liberty requires to have its roots as often moistened with the blood of its champions to prevent its decay!” How, but from the long preva lence of peace and plenty—of corrupt ing and enervating prosperity and luxu* i v?shall we account forthetotal absence of that proper indignation with which the promulgation of doctrines like these would have been formerly received? It is time for the youth of this generation to rousp themselves from their lethargy: it is high time for all who do not mean to be deluded with the mere name o( freedom, while they are groaning under the worst of slaveries, lo awake from their fancied security; or they will find the cursed beboneu of executive influ ence and corruption has paralyzed the spirit of liberty and the energy of the people. It is in vain that the sentinel sounds the alarm; if the friends of liberty prefer peaceful slavery to an energetic resistance to such monstrous despotism as is openly announced as the executive claims of prerogative. Openly announ ced! It has been boldly practised upon for the last four years, and if the election are favorable to the administration we may look for still more open and still more ruinous encroachments. Alas! for the republic.—New York Courier. What a noble Illustration of free-heart edness, firmness and boundles enter prise do the inhabitants of the West ern portions of onr great Union present. It would seem as if the grandeur of the scale on which nature has developed her treasures and capabilities had imparted a portion of itself to those bv whom those regions are peopled, and generated in their bosoms a feeling of enlarged man : hood, and unrestrained expansion of phy sical and intellectual powers. What a commentary does the Western man pro- ; sent upon the fopperies and follies of the ! modern European. Simple in his ad- j dress, unpretending in his manners, and ' plain in his attire, regardless ol empty! forms, and depending on his own resour ces, we find the inhabitants of the W c>?, thf3 very beau ideal of sturdy republi- ! canism. Independent on the convention* | al formalities of life, and in his action | controlled solely bv the dictates ol ms un sophisticated judgment or his natural wants, we behold him penetrating the w il derness, and bringing to light the hidden i resources ot a country the prospective 1 capabilities of which cannot be estinu-1 ted, and the present productiveness of j which is inexhaustible. In his log cabin, j with the forest for his larder, his gun pro- j cures him food, or mother earth richly rewards his toils. To him the future wel fare of his offspring is a source of no so iicitudr; their inheritence is a stout heart, a steady hand and a keen eye, with ha bits of endurance that nothing can con quer, and a freedom of will that nothing can subdue. Ask him where arc the farms allotted to his sons, and the dowries in tended for his daughters, and he points to the hill side and the valley, the rivers, and the wood lands, where beneath the fostering care of equal laws, abundance awaits them to crown their toils with wealth. To him daylight is the time for labor and nighl the season for rest; his lullaby is the voice of the night wind a mid the forest, and the guide ol his daily wanderings is the orb that shed its light a like on all.—Balt.

I suppose, will go out to day. The last packets made such a heavy haul upon the brokers that the purchasers quite swept the shops, and specie is somewhat scarce. It is lucky that the demand was not great. Exchange is falling a little. Some sales were made on England at 19 1 2 to 19 1-2 per cent premium Sovereigns lor 5 21a 5 *20; American gold and hall dollar S 1-2 to 9 per cent. There is no news of importance from New England, or the interior of this State. Almost nil the New England newspapers «peak of the good prospect for crops of wheat and corn especially, and rejoice in the anticipation that they will not, this year, he compelled to go to New York and the South to mill. The Postmaster General and the At torney General are in this city. It is said that they snv that the President will re commend the issu ng of a large amount of Treasury notes! As these note's can not be redeemable in specie, 1 should lik** to know how they wouid bring about Mie resumption of specie payments. We shall have all sorts of projects before the Administration will consent to go over the old turnpike road. The Globe copies a paragraph, (which it attributes to your correspondent.) where it is said that the resumption ol specie payments now’ is a ridiculous idea. Well, is it not? \\ hen such a resump tion begins, it must begin; in and from this city and in this State. Look at the late Flemish account of the banks here! Look at the number; look at the small amount of specie in their vaults, $9,000 and a little more only in one of them, | and sav, if the idea, when specie is in I such a demand for Europe, is not ridicu lous. Such a resumption now would drain every bank in a week. The tide of foreign exchanges must be turned, and the domestic exchanges regulated, before the banks will begin to think of beginning to bring about the concert so absolutely necassary tot such a resurnp tion. 1 see things as they are. I h*M no hand in creating this ridiculous idea, this bad condition of things. The Globe the Cabinet Improper & Co., have all the hand of that.

We are indebted to Messrs.Topliff for Liverpool papers to the •JGth, and London to the 25th both inclu sive.

Capitalists are still unwilling to employ money in discounting bills, and on Thurs day and Friday there was considerable difficulty in the ciiv in getting business ol that nature transacted. There has been one further arrival from the U.

The share mar ket has been rather more lively, and a lecided advance has occurred in the imitations of some of the rail ways.

The fourth firm Haded to the West Indies, and its liabilities are sail to be cunsidei able.” The same paper has the following no tice of the “State of Trade':”— It will be -een, on reference to our market reports*, that the Cotton Market has been extreme ly active during the week. The sales up to Friday evening amounted to upwaids of 36 000 bags, about 0000 of which were taken by speculators. The quantity bought for export was considerable, for eigners taking their chief supply from the Liverpool market.
