SATURDAY MORNING» Nov. 6.
The Democratic Review, political and
literary organ and vade mecum of the Loco
Foco party, has its November number,
adorned with a Portrait of President Ty
ler—thus, bringing him in the same gal
aiy with other distinguished politicians,
immortalised in the same way, to wit,
Cambreleng, Dorr, Sic. &c.
We have received the November num
ber of Campbell's Foreign Monthly Mag
azine, which contains interesting selec
tions from the periodicals of Great Britain.
We have already favorably noticed this
miscellany, nd find that it continues fully
to support the literary character which it,
at first, assumed.
We learn that the Georgetown Feiry
Landing, on both sides of the river, ( with
about 40 acres of land, the wharf in George
town, building, boats, &c.,) in the imme
diate neighborhood of the Potomac Aque
duct, has been judiciously pnrchased for
the Alexandria Canal Company—a valua
ble investment, of itself, likely, to be use- ;
ful for the Canal Company, and getting ri,d
of all future difficulty with the Ferry.
The New York Chamber ot Commerce, re
solved by a unanimous vote to pay their re
spects to the Secretary of State, on his arri
val in thai city, and thank him for the man
ner in which he has conducted the foreign
relations ol the çountry,—especially by avert
ing a war with England, which would have
teen the destruction of the American com
merce at a bio*?·
Wm. Cost Johnson's Plaw.—Thç National
Intelligencer of Wednesday contains a letter
from the Hon. Win. Cost Jchnsoq to hi* con
stituents. setting forth the grounds upon which
Remade a movement at th$ late session of
Congress for the relief of iha indebted States
Vpon the basis of the Public Land iund.—Mr.
Johnson's proposition was that the Govern
ment of the Union should issue two hundred
millions of stock to be divided amongall the
States in proportion to their representation in
Congress, and that the proceeds ot the sales
of the public lands go into thç National Treas
ury until the redemption ol the stosk by the
Government. -
Ideas or Glort.—Mf. Van Buren has been
deservedly condemned for the slavish senti
ment, that 'it was glory enough to have serv
ed under such a chiet' as Andrew Jackson.-:
The Madisonian editor has no, small share of
Mr. Van Buren'8 çmall spirit. In the last num
ber of the Court Journal ne $nd the following
grand ideas with regard to Mr. Tyler.
ilUTo m m M m Da·. Inn η m tn Vf m A kn _

dy-else 'high though his title, proud hi? name'
that he could boast of no greater title, could
attain no moreen via hie distinction than being
considered the friend of John Tyler,—the;che
rished associate of an honest man) a greater
claim to true distinction than bçing the favor
ite of an Emperor·"
Just imagine it therefore Mr* Webster's
greatest title, his most enviable distinction to
be tbe friend of John Τ ν 1er! What says the
Massachusetts Whig to this North Amer.
The following is an article in the organ of
tbe Administration at Philadelphia.
Tat Nixt Prisidkwcy.—The Whig pres
ses will have it that President Tyler is to be a
candidate for re-election to the high dignity
he now hold*. We know not whence they
derive their authority. Mr. Tyler himself has
never y et ψ vowed the idea, if the statement
of Secretary Spencer and others familiar
with the President's view can he relied on —
Whether Mr· Tyler will become a candidate
will depend upon circumstances yet undevel
oped in the womb of time. This much ap
pears to be certain that Mr. Tyfer will never
consent to run for a Second term' unless he
should be taken by the Democratic National
Convention. He will be the candidate ol no
other party. If the choice of the National
Democratic Convention, he would unquestion
ably receive the hearty eupport of the Dem
ocratic people·
Shoot not the Shcirbkls-tuet plant
the Oaks !—A correspondent of the Hunting
ton Long Islander writes as follows 1u in a
late English woric it is said, the truth that no
animal is created but for some wise purpose
is beautifully illustrated in the squirrel. It is
a singular but well authenticated circumstance
that most of those oaks which are called
spontaneous, are planted bv the squirrel, in
which way he has performed the most essen
tial service to mankind. It is related that a
person walking one day in the woods, his at
tention was diverted by a sauirrel. which sat
very composedly upon the ground. He
stopped to observe his motioas ; in a few mo
ments the squirrel darted to the top of a tree

another infant he was down with an acorn
in his mouth. and after digging a small hole
with his tore feet, he stooped down and de·
posited the acorn—then covering it, he darted
up the tree again, and in a moment was down
with another, which he buried in the same
manner; this he continued to do so long as the
observer thought proper to watch him. This
industry of the little animal is directed to the
purpose of securing him against want in win*
ter, but his memory not being sufficiently re
tentive to enable him to remember every spot
in which he deposited an acorn, he must lose
many every year, which are dtstined to spring
up at some future period to supply :he place ot
the parent tree, perhaps a century hence."

From the Portmsouth (VaO Banner.
Duello Qkakdo.—The grand performance
set down for last Tuesday, did not take plsce.
The inclemency of the tveather and the in
disposition of some of the monkeys caused a
parley that resulted in an amicable adjust
ment, in part. Two of the aspirants for
bloody fame had agreed to meet at the Hos
pital Grove on Wednesday morning, but were
frustrated in the execution of their chival
reus designs, by the officious interference, on
the preceding evening, of one of the tniscre·
ants of the law, whose huge paw held them
in durance yile, until released by a recogni
sance duly acknowledged»conditioned to ah·
stain from naughty tricks. Saturday evening,
• perty properly armed, equipped and attend·
ed, repaired to the grove And interchanged
lesded compliments—ihe result of which was.
that one of them will not be able ta eut the
"pigeon wing'4 again for a spell. The hall of
hie antagonist grazed the right koee*peo, and
pesaed fntjrely through )eft leg. The
jjnnd h considered somewhat 4»ngerous.—»

THE OLD ΟΛΜΕ.
Some of our contemporaries are beginning
to croak about Mr. Clay's unavailability, and
recount the vstious objections that portions
ofth* Whi^nrty make to bin», at the same
time protecting m admire him Tor his talent*
and hi* straightforward honesty, and to have
eonfidenee in his sound judgment snd great
experience* It has ever been Mr. CIay'4 fate to
be nibbed by his pretended friends,whokindly
put ev<*y possible objection that can be rais
ed against him, Into the mouths οΓ his opp^
nenn—>wit'i the most friendly intentions (of
course) imaginable. A Western psper now
before us,is performing this malignantly friend
ly office. The Whig abolitionists, the editor'
says, are opposed to him! The manufactur
ers are opposed to hrm, on account of his
Compromise Act, and the South are opposed
to him for the very opposite reasons. Let us
help out this very candid friend All the an
ti-snuff takers are opposed to him because he
occasionally takes a pinch; those opposed to
smoking will not support him because îiç 14
fond of a good cigar; the free trad,ç* home
starvation advocates will oppose him because
he is in favor of encouraging h<onie industry
by suitable protection to the American labor
tr; every aristocrat will oppose him because
he was once a poor boy ami aq, orphsn, and
lias made himself what he is;all the anti go to·
mill folks will oppose him because, when a
boy. he used to go to mill for his widowed
mother; all the old federalists wi'jl oppose him
because he was, 14 the days of Madison apd
Monroe, one of the leaders of the Democra·
tic party, and because he has never since
changed his principles; and lastly, all auch
good "modern democrats'*as opposed the last
war, will now oppose him as they dui when
his voice nerved the arm of the American sol
dier;aod roused the drooping spirits ol the A
mericaη people; and when his eloquence de
picted in their ι rue colors, t,hç wrongs and in
juries indicted by England upoq the American
seamen, pressed in the most insolent manner
,ίτοιη on board American vessels and forced to
fight against their oi\ η conntrymen and bro
thers! What an array ef opposition! Should
it not daunt him!
But on the other hand there are a few hun

friends, a small number of larmers, mechan
ics, laborers, merchants, and others, whose
future posperity must depend on bis principles
being carried out by the government, and
now and then a man who would be glad to
see a man of integrity, talent and expérience
oace tRoçe at the bead of our government,
Ma pilot who can weather the storm." We
ahali not despair.—U S. Gaz.
Pennsylvania Opposed to the Protec
tive Policy.—Pennsylvania opposed to the
Protective Policy ! Can this be? Yes: she
has shown it in her late election. She has
virtually «aid, "I will not put my trust in the
friends of a Protective Tariff;! prefer those
who are opposed to it, and are in favor ol free
trade." It is in vain to df ny, in the first place,
that the Whigs, as a party, are the friends of
the Protective system; and it is equally impos
sible to deny, in the second place, that their
opponents, as a party, are opposed to that s>s
tern. A majority ol Locolocos has been t'ect
ed to both branches of the State Legislature,
which m rot elect a Senator to. Congress and
the inference tve have drawn, and others, in
other parts of the Uuion, will draw, from the
result of the election, is irresistible. Penn
sylvania· therefore, so far as can he judged
by the voice of tjiç people, through the ballot
box, can no longer be considered as favorable
to that system ol measures on which her pros
perity 'mu&t afone depend. Let the advocates
of free-trade and low wages, therefore rejoice
and take courage : let them persevere in their
efforts to break down the manufactures, and
reduce the value of the labor al this country
to the twelve-and-a-half cents-a day labor
of Europe; tor, with the cry o.i •'Democracy*'
upon their lips they need not despair of entire
success.
Let them raise the shout of "Democracy,*'
•*hard money,''and l4free-trade," ahd the ut
ter prostration of American manufactures,
American enterprise, American labor, and
American commerce, will s ton follow. Then
will come "low wages,''or no wages ; and the
poor will be trodden in the dust and kept poor
«II their lives Oh ! what a glorioles thing is
this "Democracy," this "hard-money,*' and
this'Tree trad?,'' for ihç laborer» and how
wise and patriotic tlie people of Pennsylvania
have been to repudiate the Protective Policv
and its supporters, the Whigs! Who would
see Henry Clay» the father, and the ever faith
ful friend and advocate of this system. Pres
ident? Not Pennsylvania; no: she knows
her own interest better! she throws herself
intothe arms of "the great nullifier" and'Oee·
trade advocate," John C. Calhoun! or com
mits her destinies to Martin Van Buren, the
"Northern man with Southern feelings;" an
American with a British heart! Oh! won
derful wisdom1 unparallelled patriotism! and
afi for the supremacy of Locofocoism ! !!
[J. S Gazette.
There seems to have been a çall, the pasf
year for reform in our Navy, which has been
responded to, by Judge Upshur bringing to iri
al all those who ware charged with oflences
against the laws of the Navy, which measure
was alike just to the accused as the country.—
The Navy must be purged of all iil-doers. If

U. S. Gazette.
Mr. Cushing before leaving the city, was
waned upon by a goodly number of office
seekers in a body. Each had their tale to
tell,—their scars to show, and their hard ser
vices to recount One ol the foremost seek·
ers who presented himself to Mr. Cushing,
was a man who is seeking the office of United

that hf was the firsi lo unfirl the Tyler flag
in this city, and he seemed to think that he
deserve*! at least to he rewarded with a good
office for doing so much to the President.—
The motive, we presume, must have been too
apparent 10 have produced much efject with
Mr. Cushing—and where the mark of the
Swiss is so plainly written upon the forehead
of the guilty, il can hardly produce effect for
good any where. Mr, Tyler will fjnçi ere
long thai in New York his 4egood name," like
his offices, is in the possession of the Har

Oysters—Last night was a great day for
the oysters in our harbor The law régulât·
ing the taking of them, allows the privilege to
catch on and after the first »f November, Tor
a certain time, and Tor the last few days eve
ry thing in the chape of a boal in this vicinity,
hiH been in readiness for the occasion. As
early aa 4 o'clock vesterday afternoon, boat
al ter boat, scow after scow, and canoe after
canoe, could be seen steering for the large
oyster bed at the mouth of West river, and
by 10 o'clock in the evening it is estimated
that not less than 1000 persons were on the
ground· The moment the clock told the
hour of midnight, the strife commenced, and
al aunrise this morning, it was estimated that
over 10,000 bushels had been taken, and we
haye no doubt th%c Ie8$ than the actual
quantity. We saw several boat* containing
40 or 60 bushels, which had been filled bf one |
individual, and were toid thai many persons
took 30 and 40 and some even 70 and do
buanele. They can be boughi from 20 to 75
cents per bushel according lo the size.

LIVERPOOL MARKET, October 9.
•'Yesterday, the 10th ofOctober, was the day
fixed by the new Tariff for the payment oi
the reduced duties on salted provisions, and,
in consequence, public sales to a considerable
extent were arranged to take glace this day.
These sales comprised 1522 bbls American
Beef; 2199 do do Pork; 311 do do Hams; 691
bbls. Canadian Pork; 35 do do Beef—and ex
cited considerable interest and curiosity. The
attendance of town and country dealers at
the sales was numerous, and there were some
gentlemen from Ireland; the latter, no doubt,
chiefly to watch the progress of a trade
threatening to interfere with thai which they
have enjoyed exclusively for so long.
4,lt must be observe^. that the greater, por
tion of the United States1· meats were import
ed some months ago, and, having been eured
before it was known that there would be a
change iq the British dunes, were not so well
suited to the taste of consumers here, as
doubtless they will be rendered hereafter·
The pork was generally very well fed, though
rather fatter than the usual run'of Irish.
Of the beef, on the contrary, it was observed,
that it was not sufficiently well fed.
••We question whether the sales have re
sulted to the satisfaction ot the importers gen
erallv : the buvers evidently acted with more

ed 30s 6d to 31s per cwt, duty paid. Prime
beef, 38s to 39s per barrel, duty paid ; a very
old parcel went even lower. Pork, 41s to 46s
per barrel, duty paid. The Canadian pork re·
alized 43s to 46s per barrel, duty paid. Of
Canadian beef there was hule ottered, which
realized for prime 46s to 48s, and one lot of
prime π ess 5.0s per barrel, duty paid.
"Several pjrcels of American cheese were
offered, and sold at 36s 6d to 46s 6d per cwt,
duty paid, for inferior to middling quality,
whilst a few Iqts of good brought 50s to 549
per cwt, duty paid.
American Produce— Large Stock of Tobac
co.— We understand that so vast is the slock
of American Tobacco at present in the port
of Liverpool, that the Collector has lound it
necessary to procure additional sheds for the
stowage of that article, the qumtity lodged in
the old establishment amounting to upwards
of 11,000 hogsheads and packages. This ex
traordinary accumulation may probably be
owing, in part, to the unusual supply of tobac
co raised in the United States, by diverting
to that purpose lands formerly explored in
the cultivation of rice and cotton. We per
ceive that of the tobacco crop in 1838, the val
ue exported was 7.392,029 dollars;'In 1839,
9,882 943 dollars; and 12,576,703 dollars in lS^I.
Of the cotton crop the value exported was 64,·
556,811 dollars in 1838 ; 61,238,982 dollar? in
1839; and 54,330,341 dollars in 1841. Some
nf the overplus of tobacço may likewise be
due to the recent distresses of the laboring
classes, which have prevented them from in
dulging so freely as they otherwise would
have done in this favorite luxury. The check
in the demand tor cotton may at the same
time be supposed to have had its influence in
increasing f he produce of tobacco.
