' - ; The North American Reviev. for Jan uary, has a very savory artiste on tha boybdou of Henry Clay, and gives tbe following account of him as he attended school and appesred as a clersin Rich mond : We catch our first glimpse ot the boy whan ha eat In V rrr anhnnl hnuft with out windows or floor, one of a humming score oi shoeless boys, wnere a gooa- naiureq, irritable, annamg cugusa schoolmaster taught him to read, write i i . . mi : ana cypner as lar as practice, a on wa tUn nnlv Brliivil nA AVAP attAnflAfi. Btlfi that was all he learned at it His wid- owed mother with ber seven young cnih mn 1ia IW1a farm And two or thrfa) slaves, could do no more for him. , Next, we see him a tall, awkward, slender strip ling of thirteen, still barefoot, and clad in bomeapun butternut of his mother's making, tilling ber fields, and going to mill with his bag of corn strapped upon the family pony. At fourteen, in the nAa 1 T 0 1 l...m fnnnA fnm him in A Richmond drug store, where he served as errand boy and youngest clerk for one year. i Then occurred the event which decided his career.

' " j ' As he grew older, the raw and awkward striplimg became a yonng u; ..... nAg.msni harl a winninir or a commanding grace. Handsome he never was ; but his ruddy face, abundant light hair, the grandeur of his forehead, and the speaking intelligence of his counte nance, more than atoned for the irregu larity of his features. His face, too, was a compromise.. .With all its vivacity of expression, there was always somethiR? that spoke of tbe Baptist preacher s son -just as Andrew Jackson's face hud the set expression of a Presbyterian elder But of all the bodily gifts bestowed by Nature upon this favored child, ibe most unique and admirable was his voice. Who ever heard one more melodious? There was a depth of tone in it a volume, a compass, a rich and tender harmony, which invested all he said with majesty. We heard it last when he was an old man, past seventy,- and all he said was u tew words of acknowlegment to a group of ladies in the largest ball in Philadelphia. He spoke only in the ordinary tone of conversation; but his voice filled the room as the organ fills the great cathe dral, and the ladies stood spell-bound a the swelling cadences rolled about the vast apartment We havt heard much of Whitfield's piercing voice, and Patrii k Henry's silvery tones, but we cannot be lieve that either of those natural orators possessed un organ superior to Clay's majestic bass. No one who ever beard him speak will find it difficult to believe what tradition reports, that hewasthj peerless star of the Richmoud Debating Society in 1795. The following reminiscences of Mr. Clay are from the pen of the Hon. Thos. Ewing, who wrote them as a contribu tion to a Sanitary Fair: Mr. Clay, with all his terrible power or denunciation, was in ordinary debate pleasant and playful. When dealing with an ordinary adversary he often re minded me of the lines its Milton's des cription of Eden, before the fall ; "Sportive tbe lion rauiped, aud in hii pew Dandled the kid." On one occasion, the year I do not re member,, but it was the first time the Whigs carried an election in the city of New York, I found him early in his seat with a newspaper in his hand. As soon as the journal was read, he rose, quite out of order announced to the Presi dent, (Mr. Van Buren), the whig victory, spoke of their noble efforts in the cause of their country, and of their brilliant success. " Your own fellow-citizens, Mr. President the proud capital of your noble State has made its voice heard in our hails, in defense of the Constitution of our country. A ! Mr. President, doi t not this warm your patriotic heart 7" The impudence ana absurdity of this appeal was too much for the dignity of , a presiding officer. Mr. Van Bnren's face drew itself into I know not how many indescribable lines, in which the comical predominated, and he slid down into his seat until nothing of him was 1 visible but the smooth top of his headl He soon called lumt one to the chair, came down, took a pinch of snuff with Mr. Clay, and after a wholesome laugh between them, the morning business went on. I Uis classical allusions (English elast ics) were few, but sufficiently happy. H'.s attempts to cite poetry generally failed. ' On one occasion he attempted the hackneyed quotation from Hamlet Let the railed jade vinor. oar withers ere UDWrunt." He mistook the last syllable, and with great distinctness and fine emphasis made it "anstmng." Watkins Leigh sat down on bis right; I on hit left; both at tbe same instant, in suppressed voice, pronounced the word "nnwrung." The double prompting confused him; he drew himself up and with stronger era ptasis made the word ' unhung.' Ht stood with a very pleasant aud enembar raased countenance until the laugh, which had become general, subsided, and then, with a gentle shake of his bead, and a long drawing out of the first word, said: "Ah I murder will out" I almost imagined he had slipped oa pur pose to show his adroitness in recover ing, j i But his wit was sometimes displsyed in a less kindly spirit AU will remem ber Mr. Buchanan s disingenuous letter 1 ! 7.i ... . ,ti': . rT' on the subject of V bargain and corrup tion," : Mr. Clay never forgot, never for gave it, and never Jailed to tase occa sion and if none arose, to m'aki occa sionto punish it About 1834 or '35 a matter of some interest was under dis cussion. A leading Whig or two had spoken, and two or three of the rank and file of the Democratic party, but no Uemocrat then prominent aiaer, w Mississippi, was speaking. As he was drawing to a close, I observed that Mr. Clay was payiug unusual attention. The moment Walker closed be sprang to nm feet, and spoke for five or ten ainutes with greut vehemence of manner, saying nothing, but simply vaporing. He boasted that the noble Whigs came out on every question that arose,, with promptness and decision, while the DemJ cratic leaders put their rank and file for- wara to sairmisn, wnue iuej wj yj uu waited and watched tbe popular indica tions. " Come out," said he, " come out like men aad define your positions. Let us bear from you; 1 call tor tne leaders of the party." Mr. Wright and Mr. Buchanan sat uear each other on a line with Mr. Clay, who, obviously, di rected his remarks to one or both of them. Mr. Wright lookad up for a mo ment, picked with his finger the hair behind bis ear, and turned to his writing. Mr. Buchanan looked up and listened, and when Mr. Clay took his seat, arose and replied, with high indignation was surprised at the gentleman from Ken tucky : " He knew well, and the Senate can bear me witness, that I am prompt and direct in expressing my opinion on subjects as they arise, but choose to take my own time and consult my own con science. The gentleman from Ketitucky need not expect to force me into thia discussion, or any other, till I t'hoose to engage in it" Mr. Clay, in his blandest manner, assured the gentleman, from Pennsylvania that he had no reference whatever to him '"far from it,'.' saia be, and with mighty rmphssis, " I called for the leaders of the party." Mr. Buchanan appealed to the Senate the gentleman from Kentucky fixed his eyes upon Aim and addressed his remarks to him thmnvhout. Mr. Clav. in his softest and most conciliatory tone and phrase, said he could well conceive how the gentle man from PentiKvlvsnia had fallen into error. " I often. ' said he, " suppose that gentleman is looking at me whenin fact he looks quite another way." (Mr. Bu chanan had a cast of the eye. J I said to U. l.v k.n timk hia Bent. Your first blow was cruel, but magniflcent-- the last savage wurfi'.re tomahawking. "Ah I d n him," said Mr. Clay, "he writes letters. ' .' j INSURANCE. 48,600,000 DOLLARS ,; , OF PROPERTY .
