' 0-We have received from Edward Archbold, Esq., an article assigning his reasons for oppo . sing the present Militia Law, but too late for inser tion in this week's paper. - . PUBLIC DEBT OF THE UNITED STATES ' - Every whig stumper from Maine to Georgia, as serts, when speaking of the Debt of the United States, that Mr. Van Buren left the Presidential Chair with an enormous NMional Debt hangin over the people of this country, and that it required all the financial skill of the whigs to extricate the Government from this great debt But what are the facts? By the tables below, which are offi- cial, it will be seen that the whigs increased, instead of decreased the debt In obedience to a resolution of the Senate of the 23d of December, 1841, the Secretary of the Treas ury, Mr. W. Forward, transmitted the following statement, prepared by the Register of the Treasu ry, of the amount of the public debt on the 3d of March 1841, when the whigs came into power. "Statement of the public debt on the Sd of March : , 1041. ' Treasury notes outstanding -Debt of the corporate cities of the District of Columbia, assumed by the United States The (old) funded debt principal Interest The unfunded debt : Registered certificates . . Treasury notes issued during the late war 4,475 00 Mississippi certificates 4,320 09 CLAY'S CARD-PLAYING ADMITTED. .'. The editor of the Frankfort Commonwealth, the 8tats organ of wbiggery in Kentucky, driven to the wall by such men as Gen. McCalla in relation to Mr. Clay's gambling.admits that he does play cards, and plays for money too, but it is only to "enliven the interest of the game." Just listen to him: ' "It would be uncandid to conceal that I have un- dcrstood he has sometimes engaged in the practice as a sosial diversion. That' he has, on such occa sions, bet money, to enliven the interest of the game but not for the base purpose of gain, is readily ad- I..J 1, i milieu as prouauie. , . Such is die admission of Mr. Clay's Kentucky organ. This thing of betting money to "enliven the interest of the game," is what we do not exact ly comprehend as differing from gambling! After this, we hope to hear no more denials of Clay's card -playing, or of playing for money. That matter is now admitted, and we hope his moral and religious supporters will not, at least, claim to be all the decency hereafter. Mr. Clay's old age should lead him to other amusements than thteard table. Where is Ogle now and where are the Junius tracts, that so wickedly lied about Clay's not playing cards lor the last twenty years t What reliance is to be placed on such politicians? Where are the "moral reform societies"? Ohio State 8,607,351 51 1,440,000 00 53,174 38 243,106 36 26,622 44 8,379,059 81 Treasury Department, Register' Office, December 28, 1841. T. L.

The Cleaveland Plain Dealer says t "Whoever examines our report of Markets from week to week, finds the price of wheat and flour going down, down, down, and whoever comes to Cleaveland to buy cotton and woollen goods finds them going up, up, up. Both are the fruits of a High Tariff. How do you like it, Farmers?' The Elyria Republican says : "The tendency of the wheat market appears to be downward. Two, weeks since it brought 80 cents now it brings 70 or 75. By many it is pre dicted that it will go much lower." The same paper says: "Nearly every kind of cottons have advanced from 25 to 50 per cent. A merchant told us last week that he dared not bring on his usual variety, prices so high. Woolens have advanced 30 pei cent. Sugar bas advanced nearly 40 per cent Almost every other article has advanced largely." From the Ohio Statesman. The Pittsbugh Daily American, the coon organ of the city, has the follow ing extraordinary article on nativeism. "NATIVE AMERICAN PARTY. "There are but few good whigs but arefriendly to the principles of this prrty, and will, at a proper time, unite to carry them out. Nevertheless, it cannot but be seen that under the present organization of things, and the progress made in the arrangements for the coming election, and the momen tuous importance of that election, that no good whig, will be found aidms or abetting the organization of such a party at present, whatever may be their views hereafter. Let no advo cate oisuch a measure, at present be regarded as a good whig, but on the contrary, as a disorganizer of the par ty, and an enemy to the great and pat riotic purposes. Any person in the whin ranks thatmnv be found thus rtrr. mg. can only be viewed as a stool or emissary of the enemy, to throw' dis sension and confusion into the ranks of the whigs. The whiff party is now confident of success throughout all parts oi uie country us iicKets are lormed and aWIhe order of battle arranged. No good -whig, therefore, will interfere unul the victory is won." There it is again: iust wait till Clav t elected, and then we can use the power of office to deprive true citi zens of foreign birth of his rights! -This is Clay ism for you! : BOOK sJsTimONAUY STOUH, ' UNION STREET, WHEELING, VA.

By the above tables it will be seen that the whigs, while in power, increased the national debt to the round sum of EIGHTEEN MILLION, THREE HUNDRED AND, SIXTY THREE THOU SAND, EIGHT HUNDRED AND NINETY DOLLARS, AND EIGHTEEN CENTS. This certainly looks but little like retrenchment. ' ' : Not only was the general government but little in debt when the whigs came into power, but there was over half a million of dollras in the treasury on the 8d of March 184L These are facts which the whigs cannot deny. The Globe of (he 28th ult., says: "'We learn thai the President of the United States returned to this city last evening with his bride, a beautiful and accomplished lady, the daughter of the late David Gardner, esq. of New York." The bride, is, we understand, about 20. . Was it the President of the U. S., or old John Tyler of Va. that Miss Gardner totrrled?"1-- -'V ': . - : .

THIS OFFICE. . THE COLUMBIAN LADY'S AND GEN- TLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, edited bv John Inman,and filled with contributions from the most eminent and accomplished wi iters of the country i ne motives wincii nave led to the commencement of this undertaking may be briefly stated. It is be lieved by the proprietor that there is in the United States an immense provision of literary ability, for which as yet there is no adequate encouragement, or field of display: that besides the numbers of clever and scccesslul writers, whose productions are week ly, and monthly, and annually read with delight by inousanos: mere are yet greater numbers constantly arriving at maturity of power, who have only to appear on the stage of publication to receive a bril liant award of fame, and that the power of those whose names are already pronounced with respec by lips of wisest censue. are capable of more and still higher exertion than has yet been called forth. It is believed, too, that the demand for literary pro duction in this country, especially in the periodical channel, exceeds the supply in a very large propor tion, and the new supplies have only to be present ed of the right quality, and in the right way to in sure a hearty welcome and profitable reception. No doubt is entertained of the American mind's a bility to sustain itself certainly on its own ground, if not abroad against all the competition that the intellect of other lands can bring to the encounter; and full assurance is felt that among the millions of American readers there ,can be, and is, a cordial welcome for all that American writers can nroduce of excellent and interesting. From these premises it is undoubtedly inferred that there is abundant room for another Magazine, notwithstanding the merit and successs of those al ready in being: that there can be no lack of ability to nn its pages acceptaDiy within the reach of capi tal and liberal enterprise; and that such a periodical will not fail to be greeted as a welcome visiter by thous uids upon thousands, who as yet have done little or nothing toward the support and develop ment oi American periodical literature. Another and strong motive has been the feeling that New York, the first city of the Union, should be the home of a periodical owning no superior in either merit or success. The Columbian Magazine will be published on the first day of every month. Its mechanical ar rangements will comprise the best paper, type, and workmanship, that money can procure. The contributors will be sought for among the ablest and most popular writers in the country: and no efforts will be spared to secure the aid of the most distinguished, such as John L. Stephens, J. F. Cooper. F. G. Halleck. H. W. Herbert, H. T. Tuckerman, J. R. Chandler, T. C Grattan; J. C. Neal, Ceo. P. Morris. Seba Smith, Mrs. Emma C. Embury, Mrs. ASD o Ste phens, Mrs. Seba Smith, Mrs.H.E.
