Tan Biirei and 2c Win Clinton.
The attempt to divide the Democratic party and defeat the ra-election ol Mr. iViauison, made by Mamn Van Buren during the last war, is familiar to our readers. Mr. Clinton u-:is the instrument which he attempted to em- ploy tor this purpose. IJecommg jeaious tu that distinguished statesman at a subsequent nprioil. Van Buren labored with equal zeal to .lnstrnv his renutation. In a lellef addressed" to Van Buren through the public papers about that time, De Witt Clinton remarked : " It is rumored that you will be appointed an ambassador to an European court. The in habitants of the Old Wen Id will be anxious to behold the successor of the Adamses, the Pick nevs. and Franklins and they will see, what? A " political gimalkin purring4 over petty schemes-mousingoversinisterstratagems, with out elevation of mind, or dignity of character:" The same great man, when on his deathbed, closinc; some eloquent and inspired remarks lurned to his friend, and with a look and a tone of deep solemnity, added, " I leave behind me one man who will stop at nothing. Beware, I implore you, of Martin Van Buren ; he is a bad, i old and selfish man ; nothing will stop him iii ids wicked career, lfit.be necessary to ser ure his ends, he will dig up and sell the Lones of his mother." TStandai'd. From the Slcubenville Ohio Herald. Kcmmciatioiis of Van XSiircnism.. The undersigned, original supporters of the administration of General Jackson and general ly that of Martin Van Buren, believing that it is due to the public, and to our democratic friends with whom we have heretofore acted, that we should set forth our reasons for withdrawing from supporting the present Administration, would be, briefly made known : 1st. That we disapprove of the sub-Treasury scheme, as being anti-democratic, monarchial in its tendency, (by increasing Executive pat ronage) and that its practical effect is to reduce the price o labor and produce. 2d. That we disapprove of the warfare car ried on against the currency, by the President and his supporters, as being calculated to de press agricultural, mechanical, and commercial enterprise. 3d. Thatthe President and his supporters are opposed to a protective tarifi. in opposition to the practice of all civilized nations, and thoreby show themselves hostile to the support and en couragement of American artisans. 4th. That the Government officers are per mittted to interfere in popular elections, contra ry to the democratic doctrine! held by Jefferson and Jackson. 5th. We adhere to to the ctoctrine mantained by Gen. Jackson " that the President should serve but one term. '" ' Alexander Donaldson, John, C. Huston, Gen. Efiirrison's Cowardice. Mr. A. Stepped in a shop in town the oth er day, and in conversation with the mechanic I who occupied it, remarked that he could not go for Harrison. " He is a coward.1' " A coward" said Mr. S. the mechanic. " How did you find that out?" A. When I was in thaarmy. JS.rrrWherc was you in tue army ? A. In the North Western army. S. I was in the North Western Army, and I came to a very different conclusions Where was you 1 , ' - A .1 was in the North Western' Af my. S; Where abouts in the North Western Ar my ? Was you at Fort Stephenson? A. No. S. Welilwas; Was you at Sandusky? A. No. S. 1 was. Was you at Tippecanoe 1 A. No. S: Was you at the battle of the Thames? A. No. S. Well, where-abouts in the North Wes tern Army was you ? A. Why, I was drafted and could not go, 1 hired a substitute though, who was out during a part of the time. Ah, I thought so, you may set it down as a universal rule that those who pretend to be soldiers of the war and yet consider Harrison a coward, were either not in the war, or de serted from it when the country most needed their service. It is estimated that there are about 1,500,000 souls engaged in the manufacture and cultiva tion of tobacco, in the United States, one mil lion of whom are in the states of Virginia, Afa ryland, Kentucky and Missouri. Allowing the population of all the States to be fifteen mil lions, then, it appears that one tenth of our peo ple are engaged in some way, iii the tobacco businessf.eiiher as cultivators or manufacturers.

From Ainworlli's Tower of London. , Quitting the cell; Cliolmondeley turned oft on the left, in the direc tion whence he imagined the shrieks proceeded. Here he beheld a range of low strong doors, the first of which he unlocked with one of the jailer's keys. The prison was unoccupied. He opened the next, but with no bet ter success. It contained nothing ex cept a few rusty links of chain, at tached to an iron staple driven into the floor. Ill the third he found a I few mouldering bones; and the fourth was totally empty. He then knocked at the doors of others, and called the miserable captive by name in a loud voice. But no ans wer was returned. At the extremity of the passage he found an open door, leading to a small circular chamber, in the centre of which stood a heavy stone pillar. Fro'm" this pillar projected a long iron bar, sustaining a coil of rope, ter minated by a hook. On the ground lay an immense pah of pincers, a curiously shaped saw, and a braiser. In one corner stood a large oaken frame, about three feet high, moved by rollers. At the other end was a ponderous wooden machine, like a pair of slocks. Against the wall hung a broad hoop of iron, opening in the middle with a hi'iisfe a horri ble instrument of torture, termed "The Scavenger's Daughter." Near it were a pair of iron gauntlets, which could be contracted by screws till they crushed the fingers of the wear er. On- the wall also hunp; a small brushy to sprinrle the -wretched vie tims, who fainted from excess of ag onr, with vinegar ; while on the ta ble beneath it were , placed writing materials and an open volume, in which were ta&en down the confes sions- of the sufferers: Dr. Fraiililiit's Wife. Franklin, in a sketch of his life and habits, relates the following anecdote of his frugal wife. A wife could scarcely make a prettier apology for purchasmg the first piece ox iuxu- "It was lucky for me that I had one as much disposed to industry and frugality as myself. She assist ed me cheerfully in my business, fold ing and stitching pamphlets', &c, tending shop, purchasing old linen rags for making paper, &c. We kept no idle servants ; our table was plain and simple, our furniture of the cheapest, sort. For instance, my breakfast was for a loner time bread and milk, no tea and I eat it out of a two-penny porringer, with a pew tew spoon; but mark how luxury will enter families, and make a pro gress in spite of principle. . Being called one morning to breakfast, I found it in a china bowl, with a spoon of silver. They had been bought for me without my knowledge, by my wife, aiid had cost tile enqrrridus sum of three and twenty shillings for which she had no other excuse or apology to make, but that she thought her husband deserved a silver spoon and a china bowl, as well as an' of her neighbors. This was the first appearance of plate or china in our house, which afterwards m the course of years, as our wealth increased augmented gradually to several hun dred pounds m value.

Public Opinion t'xon vhose decision there is no appeal, has been so often and so loudly manifested in favor of JMIANDKETII'S VEGETABLE U NIYERSAL PILLS, that it is not surprising there should be found in "almost every city, town,, and village in the United tates, persons so depraved at heart, and so utterly devoid . of trie principal of moral rectitude, as to manufacture a spurious arti cle, and palm it off on the unsusp'ectitig public as the genuine medicine, from the result of which so many happy results Jiav'e been accrued to humani ty.

THE JEFFEIISONIAN REPUl3LlCAl in principle will be alHts iile purports, therirm - 4 and luiwavennjr advocate of ink principles ana doctrines of the democratic: .party? delineated byO the illustrious Jefpekson : the ridiUol,toe peo ple to think, to spe:ik, and to, act, iii'depencfenf-" ly, on all subjects, holihnr themselves' respon sible to no power for the .free exercise, of ibis right, but -their God, their Country, and -her Laws, which they themselves have created. A free and untrauimeled Press, conductod in a spirit worthy of our institutions, is a public bles sing, a safeguard to the Constitutionund'ef whicr wo live, and it should be cherished and support ed by every true republican: Such, thenit, is- r designed to make the paper now estiib-,, lished, and as such, the .publisher calls up- 1 the bnlightened citizens of Monroe and Pik lo aid him in this laudable enterprise. The tin e , has arrived when the Press should takej. hold and faarless stand against the evideritfy incroas ing moral and political degeneracy of the day, and endeavor, by a fair, candid, and honorable course, to remove those barriers whioh section- : ul prejudices, party spirit, and party animosity liave reared to mar the social relations of men without accomplishing any paramount good. THE JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN .l will not seek to lead or follow aiiy faction, or to j advocate and support the schemes bf any par ticular set of men. It will speak independent ly on all State and Nationai questions, award ing to each that support which its fnerits may . demand, never hesitating, however, to condemn " Mich measures, as in the opinion of ihe editor fer 1 ; justly warranted, holding as a first principle : u Ihe greatest good lo t lie greatest number. Believing that the great principles of democ racy are disregarded by the present Chief Ma--wistrate of the Nation, Martin Van Buren,, . the JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN, wjlir decidedly, but honorably oppose h'is re-elect?Orf to the high and responsible station which hcrf now holds. ft will firmly oppose the " indpendeiitTrcia' sury" Scheme, and all other schemes 'Having' J for their object the concentration in the handji .f of one man, and that man the President of tlje Nation, all power over the public' moneys, -ai -power, which, when combined with that ws- ed in him by the Constitution- as Commander-in-Chief of the American fortes, Military irnd " i Naval, together with arf enormous official pst-: " tronage, would render him more powerful Jh4nf the Executive of the British Nation, and :n short make our Gbvernnien V tfe facto aut i4Ie, live Monarchy. . t , It will ever maintain that the welfare of em Country and the preservation of her lpnblicnu Institutions should be the first and0RlyVeti!fl ments of our hearts in the choice of our public servants ; that honesty, fidelity, and capsiisuy, are the ohty true tests of merit ; that '-.ill men are created equal, and, therefore, should atyke enjoy, the privileges conferred on them by tho Constitution without being subject to pVbscrfp-' tion, or coerced bv the influence of pariv. The columns" of the JEFFERSONJ AN REPUBLICAN will ever be open to the free discussion of all political questions., believing as we do, that there is no liberty where b&'.lv' sides may not be heard, and where one portion ; of freemen are denied the privilege of declar ing their sentihients through the niediunvofuhei Press, because they differ from the majority. The JEFFERSONIAN REPUBLICAN will ever take a lively interest in the affairs of Monroe and Pike, and of the Senatorial and Congressional Districts with which they aro connected. The Farmer, the Merchant, the Mechanic, and the Laborer, will each find a. friend .in tho columns of the JEFFERSONJA REPIJB LICAN. Due care will be taken to furnish its ; readers with the latest Foreign and -Domctatfc, Nqws, and such Miscellaneous reading as wilP be both interesting and instructive. In short it' is designed to make the paper worthy of an ex-3 tensive patronage,, both from the strictly moral tone which it will ever possess, and the efforts of the editor to make it a good and useful Family Newspaper. The JEFFEllSONIAN REJJUEUCAr will be printed on a super-royal sHeePCf ' good quality, and with good type. . .
