HERALD, gy^^^$8S$rgtrg A A* sgwas FRIDAY, JUNE T, 1844. 07* Out political friends in different conn liet in the Territory, who have requested the insertion of the proceedings of their meetings in the several Democratic papers in the Ter i ritory, will excuse os for our noo-eon^pliance i willi their ivqaeste, as the eroded state of colatnae forbids it. The growth of our place, and the consequent iacrease of trade^ together with a knowledge of the fact that ad vertising increases business, has so filled our 3 sheet with business adveriisemeuts that we have less than our usual space for news and 1 miscellany. From the present time to the e lection, our readers will excuse us for a laek of our usual quantity of Literature and Mis cellany, as we conceive that the principles in volved in the result of the approaching elec tion calls for greater exertions than usual, not opon our part alone, but that of every Demo- 1 crat in the Territory, we intend, therefore, to devote a large space to political matters.— Should our place continue to grow at its pre6 ent rapid rate, and our patronage accordingly, wo shall er large the Herald next spring, which will enable us to comply with the re quests of our friends throughoutthe Territory. ig M*rtiC€t**—Lo«a of Life, and DeslruetioH of Property, On Wednesday evening last, one of the most deetructive hurricanes, or whirlwinds, with which our country has ever been visited, pass ed through our Territory1^ little north of this place, carrying death and desolation with it. The morn of that day was as pleasant as usu al, a very gentle breeze playing with the leaves, and a cloud'occasionally shutting the •un from view but in the afternoon, a dark,' angry looking cloud, covering the whole north eastern horizon, seemed to stand still, wbile from the south a very severe gale was con stantly blowing. As at a signal, the cloud started from the position it had so long main tained, and in a few moments the rain was pouring down in torrents, and so continued for 20 or 30 minutes when it ceased, and about this time, after a very short calm, a strong gale was blowing in the opposite direction from which it came before. But this was not the place for its horrors. We have learned but few particulars, and they truly melancho ly. At about 6 o'clock, a whirlwind, raking a space of half-a-mile in width, passed thro1 Centre, or Randall's Grove, about 12 miles a bove this place, with 6uch force as to tear down the dwelling of Mr. Randall, buiJLt of i heavy logs, killing Mrs. Randall instantly and vte^tsoTeatn rtiat wfltiTn few miles of Tipton, Cedar county, the res idence of Mr. Mudge, (we believe that to be the name,) was blown to the ground, danger ously wounding Mr. M., and injuring four or five of his family. In its course is tore down five or six houses in the same vicinity, and left neither tree nor fence standing behind it. It crossed the Mississippi a few miles above Cordovia, Ills., tearing down a barn, unroof ing a residence, and twisting off trees at the ground, but without the loss of life, we be lieve. What destruction was done between these points, or how far it extended, we know not, but fear it is great, and many lives have been lost. A hotel at Moline, at the head of Rock Island, Ills., was struck fcy lightning, inju ring four or five persons. DEMOCRATIC ASSOCIATION*—In pursuance of call published in our last, upwards of fifty of the Democratc of this place, together with a few of our country friends, assembled at the Court House, on Monday evening last, and resolved upon the formation of a Democratic Association, for the purpose of counteracting the influence of the Clay Clubs formed and forming both in this county and other parts of the Territory. The Association, after the se lection of the proper officers for its govern ment, adjourned to meet again, at the same place on Monday evening next, when a con stitution and by-laws will be submitted for its consideration and adoption, and when every Democrat in the county is respectfully invited to attend. It is hoped that oar country brethren, from •11 parts of the county, will endeavor to be present, and participate, that a perfect concert of action may be effected. Our opponents are .wide awake, nnceasing in their efforts to a roase the lukewarm, and excite them to vigi lant exertions for the success of principles which we profess to believe destructive of the best interests ef our common country. Then, •hall we remain inactive, doing nothing, as though the principles we profess are not worth contending for 1 No. Rather let us enlist in the service, buckle on our armor, and resolv ing that we will conquer, or fall in the figh/, go to work, and continue at it, until the errors of Wbiggery thall be fully exposed, and the truths, the purity of Democratic principles firmly established in the minds of all doubt ful and wavering. That this can be done by the use of proper means, within our reach, we have no doubt. Our opponents claim to have succeeded already, in seducing numbers of our ellow-citisens from the path they have here tofore trodden and enrolled them on the Whig hit, to go hereafter at the bidding, or by the direction of the ring-masters of that party. Do they speak but facts, or are they gulled, de ceived, by the cunning of honest, but mischie- D#m°crats! Be that it may, not h. ing can be lost, and none too much gained, by the activity of our brethren. Need we further urge our friends to unite with the Association, and promptly attend its meetings 1 The christian, alive and active in the work of his creator, not only seeks, but finds strength to support and encourage him from the addresses delivered from the pulpit, based upon passages from the sance book h# his had before him for half a certury, per haps then can we not profit by ^feasiodply assembling and listening to expositions of the tricks of our enemy, who are always charging, and assailing us on new points? Come cn, we eay, and by the united exertions of the supporters of Democratic principles, the Whigs will be frustrated in their present de signs, and Democracy come out triumphant. Come e*}.we again eay,—" it is good to he there.** •J7" We have often thongl that were the Democratic party to stick by their men with the same tenacity, right or wron^, that char acterizes the Whig party a triumph would be the result of every contest but they do not which accounts for occasional defeats.— Is there Democratic candidate before the people, in wnc.se political principles an objec tion can be fonnd, we find his political breth ren ready to expose and condemn not so with the Whigs. Let us cite a few instances.— Henry Clay is the Whig candidate for the Presidency—he denounces the settlers on the public lands as a band of Land Pirates, Law less Rabble, Public Robbers, &c. and still they shout his name in loud huzzas. He is a High Tariff /nan, and yet the Anti-Tariffites of the south support him. He is a Mason, and yet the W1iig Anties support him. He is in favor of the distribution of the proceeds of the public lands among the several states, by the ratio of representation, and still Ihe Whigs of the new, small, and unindebted 6tates sup port him. He is opposed to the extension of the right foreigner? to the benbfits of the pre-emption laws, and still such of them as are Whigs cry out, great is Henry Clay. He is opposed to the annexation of Texas, but it matterrs not, he is still supported by the Whigs of States which warmly advocate an nexation. He is a slave holder, still the Abo litionists support him. Hear what one of them, Caseins M. Clay, his nephew, who has libe rated his slaves, says on the subject. In a re cent letter he says: No man, after the next Presidential elec tion, should be fit to rule over a republican christian people, who shall violate, by holding slaves, the only two principles upon which either Christianity cr republicanism can stand the test of philosophical scrutiny for a single moment." Now, be*t wcJn4 a fdf -AI»o?it?o!i- horring it after he shall have served four years. He is a duellist, fought John Randolph for words spoken in debate, while the constitu tion, which he was sworn to support, express- lg declares that no member of Congress shall be questioned for words spoken in debate, and wrote the challenge which caused the murder of the lamented Cilley, and yet the pious, anti duelling Whigs support him. But how is it with Mr. Van Bnren, whose private character, during three several Presidential canvasses, was so bright and unspotted that the tongue of slander never dared no: assail it? Why, for opposing the immediate annexation of Texas, his friends in some part3 of the country have met and released their delegates to the Balti* more Convention from their instructions to snpprt his nomination, and instructed them to support some man in favor of immediate an nexation. The whole Whig party chuckle at the idea that a name other than his, as intima ted by late letters written from Washington, may be presented to the Democracy of the U. States, as a candidate for the Presidency.— With this exception, we know of no opposi tion to Mr. Van Buren, among the party with whom he has ever acted. In all the leading measures of the party, he has been found sound to the core, never flinching. We might con tinue the comparison further, bringing it down to offices of the lower grade, showing that while the one party uphclds its men for their principles, and them alone, the other sticks to their msn, thiough good and through evil re port, never abandondoning them, however just may be the cause for such a course. But we censure not our political friends for it, but hope never to see the day when man worship can be justly charged against the Democracy as a party. Rally around Mr. Van Buren, say we, so long a9 his principles are without a fault, but never around him merely because he wears that name, however great his servives have been. We have seen so much of this idolatry, this man-worship of Mr. Clay, the soul and embodiment ©f Whig principles that we detest it." fly" Thos. Hughes has dUyose^of his in terest in the Iowa Capitol Reporter, to Jesse Williams, his associate, and taken his leave of the corps editorial of the Territory. We are sorry to lose the services of one so efficient as Mr. H. but wa have every confidence that his late partner wjll, by increased energy, sup ply the vacuum created by his withdrawal, and that the Reporter will continue to be a paper worthy its position. We need scarcely say that we wish oar brother of that paper abun dant success. 07* To-morrow is the day for holding the Democratic County Convention in this place. Jy* The river is yet high, and rising at the rate of about five inches in 34 hours. To the Editor of the Herald Sib:—As my name has been placed in yonr columns as a candidate before the Democ^ai«c County Convention, for the office of County Recorder, and the time for holding said Con vention is close at hand, and as there are oth ers who are desirous, and perhaps better qus** ified- to serve the people than myself who are wanting the office, I will merely say, nr y name was placed there unauthorized bv in*-, and that I urcline being a candidate for that, or any other office, at the coming election Yours, &c. ABRAHAM SMALL? Bloomington, June 3,1814. For the Herald. MB. Rtreteti.:—Sir—My name having been placed, by some of my friends, among the list of candidates, for the office of Delege'e to t*ie Convention for forming a Constitution atid State Government, and deemfng it of impor tance that the delegates froia the several town s i s o e o u n y o n v e n i o n o i e w o n the 8th inst. at Bloomington, should know the views and opinions of the several candid »^s for that trust, as to the provisions which oig.M to be engrafted on that instrument, I tak-j '*c casion to°6tate mine, in order that the Co:iyAv tion may act understandingly so for as 1 -.m concerned. But before I proceed, I wilt s- y that 1 fully recognize the right of instrr jU i, and should I be honored With a delegation from this county, I »j "x accordance with the weU ascertained p.' •e? of my constituents, and ii lelt without t.f tions, I should use my utmost endeavors enre the greatest possible amount of public liberty, whittle least possible burthen U on the people. With these premises I will now state a .'»-w of the main features which ought in my opin ion to belong to the Constitution. The Governor to serve not over two y ars, to be elected by the people, with a salary not exceeding one thousand dollars per annum. The Senate and House of Representatives elected annually, to hold sessions forty t. vys commencing on the first Monday after the^tst day of January, with one dollar and fifty fits per day, and mileage. By convening in a n uary they will have longer days to do bosii«ss in, and no occasion to adjourn for the holi days. The Judiciary and other State officers, s,-ch as Secretary of State, Treasurer and Au^^r to be appointed oy the Governor vice and consent of the Senate. The right of suffrage as large and free as it now is by the existing laws of this Territory. The Legislature to exercise the same 1'ULC tions and powers as the Legislature now dots, with the following restrictions. They shall have no power to pass acts of ili vorcement that power to bo vested in the courts, They shall have no power to pass act.1 of incorporation granting privileges tu compacts, which are forbidden to be exercised by private individuals without charters. No act establishing any Bank—nor any act for the purpose of borrowing money-*nor any act levying taxs for purposes other than the support of Government, or for joying ex isting debts—nor any act to remove the seat of Government, shall have force, or effect go into operation, until they ue submitted same degree and to the same extent as the President of the United States, has1 power to exercise it. All officers now elected by thfl people uader the existing laws of this Territory, together with the clerks of the several courts to be elec ted by the people under the Constitution.— The Senate at first to consist of not exceeding twenty six members. The House not exceed ing fifty-two members the Legislature to make apportionments from time to time hut in no ca?e to adopt a ratio which will ini rense the number of members in proportion to tie population of the State. The Governor to be eligible for the same office two terms in throe. Elections for county and state officers to ke held on the first Monday of October in each year. I recommend the election of the Senate an ually and for my reasons for so doing I will only refer to the history of the two ^.Totfr? made dy the House of Kfpresentatives^X" peal the charter of the Miners' Bank of Du buque. If the people had the power to dis place the Council annually, they could have elected such a Council a3 would hove acted with the House in the measure, and thereby would have rid the Territory of that abomina tion. Believing as I do that the people in this country are sovreign, just in proportion and to the extent that they retain power in their own hands, and as it is necessary to part with some of their power in order to organize a state Government it follows that the Government is strong and the people weak just in proportion to the amount of power they vest in their Gov ernment, and believing it to be much bettor for the people of Iowa to bo a strong people with a weak Government, rather than to have a strong Government and he a weak peojve, 1 have recr.tnmpnded that '\\p pletely under the power of the people as .. other branch of the Government. Willi my name and my views before them, the Convention will not fail to do me justice whether my name be placed by them before the people of this county for the office of Del egate or not and I assure you that whatever their decision may be, I will bow most cheer fully to that decision. JOHN SHERFEX. the Hibernian, we yesterday receiv ed St. Louis dates up to Tuesday last, but hear nothing of the result of the Baltimore Convention. LATE FROM AFRICA.—The brig Atakinta, at New York, from Monrovia, brings intelligence from that place to the 12th of April. A ship supposed to be the Crawford, late of N. York, but more recently a packet between Hav.^nJ and Cadiz, was fallen in with by H. brig Perrett, in the act of taking a car-ro of negroes on board. An attempt was made bj" the brig's boats to board her, but the British were beaten off. The Crawford then took in her cargo of one thousand negroes and pro ceeded to sea. When off the harbor she again fell in with the brig, but socn outsailed Iter and made her escape. An American brirr ron Havanna, in the river Galenas, from having a cargo of slave goods, was suspected of befnc connected with the slave-trade, and was de tained By the British and prevented from Ian ding her cargo. The British steamer Henlo pen went round to Monrovia and towed the United States ship Decatur up the river to in vestigate the affair. The officers and crew belonging to the American squadron on the coast were all well.—Mo. Repub. GEN. JACKSON AM) ANNEXATION. We pfesent our readers lo day with an other letter from Gen. Jackson on the subject of the immediate annexation of Texas to the United States, in which he brings this important Question before the country in its true light. This letter comes forth at the urgent request of Gen. Jackson's numerous friends, who have addressed hifti of late, and expressetj a de Sfeire U^know if his seniiments have not ^changed in regard to annexation, since so much information has been brought to bear upon this great measure by the let ters of Mr. Van Buren, and otlfer distin guished men of our country. Having no connection with the ques tion except the interest which, in common with other citizens, I take in all that con cerns my country, what I have hereto fore said upon it was dictated by no de sire to be a prominent actor. It was cer tainly far from my expectation that there should be an effort in any quarter lo make the question a mere party one. Hence, when it was brought to my nutic« some twelve months ago, by the honorable Mr. Brown of this State, I answered his in quiries with promptness and frankness. I had not lorgotten the principles by which my administration had been guided when attempting to obtain Texas by ne gotiation with Mexico, nor the care which was taken lo convince Mexico, afterwards, that this rovernment had no ageuny. di rectly or indirectly, in the steps resorted to by the people of Texas to establish for themselves an independent government. In the reference which Mr. Van Buren has made lo my conduct as President in these respects, he has stated what is en tirely true, and has delineated with the a bility and perspicuity which so eminently distinguish him, the general principles •which characterise the course of our gov ernment 1n its intercourse with foreign powers, iitit just and accurate as he is, and subscribing, most fully, as I do, lo all that he alleges as applicable to the ques tion as it stood in my administration, and as it did under his own, I still think that the circumstances are so far altered as to pivo n new r4'"per.t to the whole question, u I e Y in'the discretion with which our govern ment may now act upon it. At the piesent period, it cannot be doubted that Texas is able to maintain her •independence of Mexico, if each State is left tb its own resources, uninfluenced and unaided by any foreign power. Eight years have elapsed since the memorable battle of San Jacinto, and there lias been no serious attempt on the part of Mexico to occupy the country, and it is certain none can be made with any prospect of success. In this state of affairs, acknowl edged by ourselves and the principal pow ers of the world as an independent nation, and treated as such. Texas renews to us the almost unanimous wish of her citizens to be annexed to the United Slates—tell ing us, substantially, that if now repulsed, she must form such alliances elsewhere as will best enable her to improve her re sources and repair the disasters which sfie has suffered from a protracted quasi war. She is sensible that her happiness will be ty^st secured by incorporation iuto our U nion—that the disposition and pursuits of her people, being homogenous with those of the United States, can receive no ade* quale protection from any other quarter. VV'e admit the truth of these asseitions, and feel that they constitute a powerful motive for action, independent of the con siderations which are suggested by a pru dent regard for the stability of our own institutions. In reference to Mexico, I mould use the following language:—We have carefully ftbsiained from all interference with jour relations to Texas except to acknowledge her independeuce, in the same manner and upon the same principles that we did your independence when you separated from Spain. We have, indeed, been more scru pulous with you than with Spain, for without consulting or respecting the feel ings of the latter power, our government did not hesitate lo open a negotiation with you for the retrocession of Texas, and that, too, long before your independence was acknowledged by Spain. But the time has now come when we feel that this delicacy ought no longer to restrain us from a treaty with Texas, particularly as we know that our failure to do so will pro duce results that may endanger the safety i| of our confederacy. I cannot think there is decrepancy be tween these views and those avowed by my administration, when proper allowance is made for the change of circumstances, or that they contain any well founded cause for complaint on the part of Mexico. It may now be stated as a fact on which we may rely with the greatest confidence, that if Texas be not speedily admitted in to our confederacy, she must and will be inevitably driven into alliances and com mercial regulations with the European powers, of a character highly injurious, and probably ^hostile to this country.— What would thea be our condition?— New Orleans and the whole valley of the *1^ From the Nashville Union. HERMITAGE, May 13, 184^* To tAq, Editor of the Union: SIR: I "am induced to address you this letter, because I-have, within a few days past, received letters fiom many of my friends, who have expressed a desire to know whether my views in relation to the policy of annexiug Texas to the Uni ted States have been changed by the light which the subject has received from the recent letters of Mr. Van Buren, and oth er .prominent ^citizens and because it €eeins to be necessary that-1 should an swer or be misunderstood. Mississippi would be endangered. The numerous herds of savages within the lim its of Texas, and on her borders, would be easily excited to make war upon our defenceless frontier. I do not deein it necessary to be more explicit here in the enumeration of the reasons which justify, to my mind, the speedy annexation of Texas to the United States. My aim is to give thi« country the Strength to resist foreign interference. WitlwvU Texas we ijiall not have this strength. She is the key to our safety in f?ysouthwestfair ke and we3t. bhe offers this to us on and honorable terms Let us take it and lock the door to all fu ture danger. We can do it without giv ing just offence to Mexico. Indeet^ we may say that the measure is called for by the interests of Mexico, no less than that of qur own for without it, she can have no reliable guarantee against fu ture invasion. As to the form of annexation, I do not think it material whether it be by the trea ty or upon the application of Texas by an act or joint resolution of Congress. I cannot close these remark® without saying that my regard for Mr. Van Buren is so great, and my confidence in his love uf coutitry is strengtheded by so long and intimate an acquainting, that no differ ence on this subjcct can ehange my opin ion of his character. He has evidently prepared his letter from a knowledge only of the circumstances bearing on the sub ject as they existed at the close of his ad ministration without a view of the disclo sures since made, and which manifest the probability of a dangerous interference with the affairs of Texas by a foreign power. 1 am respectfully, Your servant, ANDREW JACKSON. CON GUESS—HOUSE OF REPRESENTA TIVES.—In the House of Representatives, the navy appropriation bill was consider ed in Com viittee of the Whole. Mr. Davis, of Kentucky, moved an ap propriation of $50,000 for the purchase of American hemp for the use of the navy. The amendment was defended in a speech of some length, in the course of which it was argued and proved upon testimony that the best American water-rotted hemp was fully equal to the foreign article.— Great complaint was made of the Secreta ry of the Treasury for refusing-to carry out the joint resolution of Congress adopt ed in 1841, for the encouragement of home-grown hemp. The best Kentucky hemp, it was said could be procured for $40 a ton less than the foreign hemp, which was no better. The price of the foreign article $200 a ton, and of the best domestic article was $160 a ton. Mr. i i 4 Valifu Utvi: lirtf IIo*i$i' to protect Inife interest by giving it a fair trial in our navy. The provisions bf the bill were read mid an amendment adopted making specific instead of general appropriations for ihe navy-yards. Mr. Cave Johnson moved that no ship should be built or rebuilt without the con sent of Congress. This amendment pre vailed. Amendments were proposed and rejected, when the committee reported progress and the House adjourned. THE VOTS ON THE TEXAS TREATY.—-The Wasfiingron correspondent of the Newark Daily Advertiser, gives the following as the probable vote in the Senate on the Texas Trea ty FOB IT.—Woodbury, Buchanan, Sturgeon, Haywood Hugar McDuflie, Colquitt, Mamie gaii, Henderson, Walker, Semple, lireese, Uagby, Lewis, Sevier, Fulton —15.

Tha vote of Mr. Niles, Sturgeon, Atchison and Johnson, is regarded as doubtful, though it is supposed they will vote as set down. WAR DEPARTMENT.—The President has sent into the Senate further documents.— 1 hey show that no funds have been drawn from the Treasury in consequence of the late orders of the War and Navy Departments, placing the hiiv«l ini ifiiliibry furces ot the country on the borders of Texas, except the ordinary appropriations for the service. The War Depurtinent hes, however, anticipated, by a few months, the purchase of wagoos, to faciliate the removal of the troops.—St. Louis Reveillo. INTERESTING DECISION.—In the case of the people vs. Horatio G. Onderdonk, tried in the Queens Circuit and Oyer and Terminer New York, for marrying a cou ple contrary to statute and for receiving money under false pretences in accepting a two dollar bill therefor, Judge Ruggles decided that mariage is only a civil con tract, which the defendant has as good a right to perform and certify as any divine of magistrate and that he acted properly in receiving any sum that the parties might tender him for such service.
