"MusTANG" the Mexican correspon
dcnt of the New Orleans Delta, whose
admirable letters descriptive of the bat
ties of Contreras, Churubusco, Chqpulte
pec, &c., have been so extensively copied
and generally praised, is a practical prin
ter, and worked in this office in 1844.
le is by birth, if we rightly remember,
a Marylander, and is well known in some
Sortions of that State as Mr. James L.
Freaner. The members of the old Leon
County Hickory Club will recollect him
as the very excellent singer who led the
choir at the enthusiastic meetings of the
Club in 1844. While here, he compqscd
a song, and appended to each stanzas the
chorus which is quoted by, him in his ac
count of the capture of the city of Mexi
co, viz: " Our flag is there," &c. This
song was sung by him on the presenta
tion of a beautiful flagto the HIickory
Club'by ie~Dier-ii IsIe-fti
city, and produced a happy effect. His
democratie songs added no little to the
spirit of those never-to-be-forgotton as
semblages of the " flat-footed democracy"
of old Leon. By the way, we remember
an anecdote of those times, in which
Freaner figured conspicuously, and which
therefbre do to tell. On the day of tho
election in this county, which we believe
was just three 'years ago this very duy,
in the fall of 1844, our whig friends ral
lied their singing crowd,' and marched
forward to the polls, in high glee, and lash
ing the democrat afler this sort
" Henry Clny and Frelinghuysen
To James K. Polk will be rank pizen !"
" Mustang's" republicanism could not
stand this, and rallying his- forees, lie
struck up in a clear, loud voice, sufficient
to drown the opposing minstrels
"We'll give our Polk our suffrage poll
To drive the Coon back to his hole,
And Jersey's weasel, and Sunday mail,
We'll ride upon a Hickory rail;
0 Coons you rtand no chance," &c.
This was enough-the Coon,s fled, and
we skinned them pre'ty eflectually that
day, elceting our entire Senatorial ticket,
anid so en. Mr. Freaner left this city in
Novembe 'r, 1844, for N. Orlearna. W hen
the news of' General Taylor's perilous po
sition was received in New Orleans, Fre
aner was among tho first to enroll himi.
self a volunteer for his relief, and march
ed and served a campaign as a private in
the company raised in Newv Orleans.'
hAIarrT OIur-MAFF iTTEn.--A Lady
writing for the Louisv'ille Courier aboist
the lectures of the Rev.Mr Maffitt, says:
"In after years, when the Itirid flame of
criticism, prejudice and malice, shall, like
the school boy's rocket, blazing' meteor
like, for a moment, in terpentine birilliatn
cy, expire, leaving but their black zitd
fronts, shall the name of John N. Martiitt,
batho in thie sun light of immortality,
phoen ix -l i ke, rise from smouldering ashe~s
of dlepartedl glory, spreading her ruby
wings henvenward, cleave the blue donme,
and hay her trophies - at the the feet
of that Angel of eloquence, who, rising
from her celestial-throne, shall inscribe his
atutegraph npon thme brightest gems that
