PORTRAIT OF GEN. TAYLOR.
Capt. Cleveland has It: ft at our office
a large and correct Dngucroiype likeness
of Gen. Taylor. All ' who desire to ice
a correot likeness of our next President,
are invited to call early, as it will remain
id our possession but a short time.
Our democratic friends are particu
larly invited to call and see this likeness of
the old General. They have heard much
of him, and can form some conclusions as
to the truth or falsity of some things they
have heard, even from a careful examina
tion of this portrait.
The Legislature met on Monday.
It will be seen by reference to another col

THE MAILS AGAIN.
The Brunswicker of Saturday last, says
"The Weston and Liberty canvass bags,
last Wednesday morning came along from
the cast, but no mail for this place. Will
ine uiasgow limes, which never could ex
actly trail the travels of a vagabonding
mail, some time since, try again? Who is
to blame this .time?'
The deputy informs us, the bags in qucs
tion left this post office, just as surely as
Old Zuck never surrenders. "Who is to
blame, this time?" is just what we want to
know.
Cold Weathfr. We have had very
severe weather during the last eight or ten
days. Wednesday night of last week, was
the coldest night of the season. The river
had been full of floating ice the day before
and part of that day. It blocked some
where above, and at supper time, there was
no floating ice. During the night, so in
tense was the cold, that ice formed on the
river sufficiently strong for persons to cross
upon it and it is now crossed and re
crossed with wagons and teams.
Our citizens are busy gathering ice for
the summer. All who have houses to fill,
should not let this opportunity pass.
CONGRESSIONAL.
In the Senate on tho 11th, Messrs. Fitz
patrick, of Alabama, and Borland, of Ar
kansas, took their scats. The report of the
Secretary of the Treasury was presented,
and 20,000 copies ordered to bo printed for
the use of the Senate. There was an ani
mated debate on the motion to print. Mr.
Cameron opposed the motion, and conten
ded that the people, by their expression at
the ballot-box, had negatived the Secreta
ry's measures, and no good could arise from
printing so large a number. Messrs. Niles,
Hale and Metcalfe, also spoke in opposition
to the motion, and Messrs. Jefferson Davi3,
Allen, Footc and Westscott, in its favor.
The vote on its adoption stood 31 to SO.
1 Mr. Douglass introduced a bill providing
for the establishment of a Territorial Gov
ernment over California.
In the House, the Speaker announced
the regular Standing Committees. Reso
lutions were adopted instructing the appro
priate committees to bring in bills for the
improvement of western rivers and liar,
bors and reviving the tariff of 18-13. The
Committee on the Judiciary were instruct
ed to inquire into tho expediency of so
amending the constitution as to require
that the President 6ha!l be elected by a ma
jority of the people.
In the Senate on tho 12th, Mr. Benton
presented a petition from a number of citi
zens of New Mexico, praying tha establish
mem oi a territorial government. Lpon
the motion to refer and print, the discus
tion was very animated, in which the best
talent oi ine senate was engaged among
them Messrs. Clayton, Benton and Cal
houn. Some angry words passed between
Messrs. Benton, Culhoun and Wcstcoii.
After explanation from Mr. Calhoun, the
motion was carried.
In the House Mr. Palfrey asked leave to
introduce a bill prohibiting slavery in the
District of Columbia. Refused. Mr. Root
introduced a resolution directing lliu Com
mittee on Territories to report a bill or
ganizing territorial governments in Cali
fornia, and New Mexico, and excluding
alavery from said territories.
In the Senate Mr. Cameron presented a
memorial, numerously signed, by citizens of
Columbia County, Pennsylvania, praying
a reduction of thetarifTof 181U.
lathe House, Mr. Henry submitted a
resolution of inquiry into the expediency
of establishing a branch mint in California.
PERSONAL MATTERS. f
1 We have not been in the habit of obtru
ding a notice of ourselves upon the public,
through the columns of the Times, and we
will ask the indulgence of our readers, for
devoting a few paragraphs to that purpose.
Our readers are doubtless aware there
has existed a controversy, between some of
our correspondents and the Editor of the
Banner. With regard to the merits of that
controversy, they are as competent to judge
as ourselves. We had only interested our
selves so far, as to know that the authors
were responsible men, and were answera
ble for whatever they chose to write.
Thus situated, we felt warranted in believ
ing, that if the Editor of the Banner felt
himself aggrieved, he would have demanded
the names of our correspondents, that he
might have vented his pent up torath in an
honorable way. Ihrough the extreme
condescension of the Editor, we have been
noticed in so very polite terms, that we can
not forbear stating, for the information of
the public, that the names of our corres
pondents have never been called for. And
we will hazard the opinion, that the public
need bo under no apprehension, that our
Editor's notions of propriety, will ever
prompt him to so rash an act. His opin
ions and notions are peculiar, and although
not of much weight either way, we doubt
not have undergone some changes recently.
OThe Eastern paper mail failed on
Tuesday, which leaves us without news
from Congress.
GOLD I GOLD! GOLD!
The country seems to be in complete fer
ment about the Gold of California. It is
established beyond doubt that Gold exists
there, in great abundance, and that those
on the ground are lining their pockets at
the rate of from ten to fifty dollars per day.
This news has caused no little fluttering
and anxiety on the part of many, who are
talking about going to California.
That country will doubilcss be densely
populated in a short time, ond many "gol
den dreams"' are destined to meet with a
drossy interpretation "Let well enough
alone," is a very sensible maxim, and should
be pondered well before business is bro
ken up at home a certainty given up for
an uncertainty.
Tobacco. There is nothing doing in To
bacco, as yet. Tho growers ask two dol
lars, which buyers ore unwilling to give.
There have been a few sales, we under
stand, at one dollar and fifty cents, with the
rise.
"God & Lideutv." It seems this Mex
ican phrase was attached to tho President's
Message by some of the Telegraphers. We
are pleased to know that Mr. Polk did not
append it himself for surely his message
was bad enough without so ridiculous a ter
mination. The Telegrapher who took 6uch
a liberty, should be displaced for the act.
One's conscience is a day-book, on which
all tho actions of life are registered. The
business man, posts up the transactions of
the day, and strikes a balance, to learn the
profits and losses of its transactions. How
much better it wo.ild make each and every
one of us, were we, in the quiet of the eve
ning, to devote a few minutes to the day
book of our conscience, rejoice over the
good entries, grieve over the bad ones, and
begin the new day, determined to have
nothing to prieve over at niht.
A word to the cihls. Leap year is al

OLD ZACK SENTENCED.
Tire following sentence was voted on the
back of a Whig electoral ticket in this city,
on the 7th. It is too good to be kept in the
ballot box, and begging the voter's pardon
wq feel constrained to make it public.

f . ' Jefferson CrrY,Dec. 24,' 1849. .
3f(ri Green & Shirley. In confor
mity with my promise when I taw you a
few days since, I hasten to inform you of
the safe arrival of your correspondent in
the City, (prepared with pen and paper, to
note down for tho edification of (he read
ers of the Times, everything that trans
pires during the winter of interest or im
portance. Though there are a largo number of
strangers here, the members I find are
considerably in the minority, but little over
half of them having arrived. There
will no doubt be a quorunvin attendance
in both houses to-morrow, as they are still
coming in every hour.
The number of those seeking office at
the hands of the Legislature is unusually
large. Many persons who would have
looked to Washington City for compensa
tion for party services, have, by the defeat
of General Cass, been as it were, thrown
upon the state and compelled to narrow
down their ambitious aspirations, from an
Indian Agency or a Clerkship at Wash
ington City, to a clerkship or the pitifu
offico of door keeper in our own Legisla
ture. The canvass for the clerkship of the
House is quite animated and excites con
siderable interest. The most prominent
aspirants are Messrs. Watson, of St. Louis,
Major Walker, late of the Santa Fe bat-
talian, and Air. IMassie. As turimen say
you might, at this time, cover them all
with a blanket, and it would be difficult to
say who will show himself possessed of
the most speed and bottom, Watson is an
old favorite of the party, and has frequent
ly partaken of its bounty, Massie was
clerk at the last session, and if I mistake
not, Walker was Secretary to that Con
vention, whose work was so effectually
damned by the people. Each one of them
has tasted of the sweets of office, and is
anxious to try it ajfain. What wonder
that there should always be so many seek
ers after office, when tho people see how
anxious those who have been in office are
to get back again. The candidates for
the less important offices are still more nu
merous, and among their own particular
friends, excite as much interest as the
election of Clerk or Speaker. For the
latter, Messrs. Robinson of Platte, and
Ballou of Benton have been named. Risk
of St. Louis, has some friends, but I under
stand positively declines running. My own
impression is, that Robinson will beat Bal
lou. Robinson is understood to be the fa
vorite of the Edwards party.
In the excitement of the canvass for
Clerks, Door-keepers, Sergeant-at-arms,
&c, the new Governor and his cabinet are
entirely forgotten. Some one occasional
ly hazards a guess as to whom he will give
the different offices. Those who "speak
upon the subject at all, assign the post of
Secretary, to E. M, Ewing, of Ray. At
torney General, to Robards, of Columbia
Auditor to Dr. Brown, of Cape Girardeau
For the office of Register, there are sever

son Hayden of Greene, and Hancock of
But little will be done in either house this
week; in all probability nothing furthe
than the election of the different officers
and the appointment of the committees. I
shall however, keep you fully advised in
relation to the proceedings in both houses.
CASSIUS.
Mr. Webster and Gen. Taylor.
There is a good story in circulation in
Boston, respecting Mr. Webster and Gen,
iayior, wnicn me traveler tens, it is
said that Mr. Webster sent a copy of his
Marshfield speech to Gen. Taylor, and
since the election, has received a letter from
the old General, acknowledging tho re
ccipt of the speech. In regard to the ex
pression of Mr. Webster, that the nomina
tion of Gen. Taylor for the Presidency
was one not fit to be made, the General
says he was much of Mr. Webster's opin
ion at the time of the nomination; bu
thinks that, since the peoplo of the United
States are of a different opinion, it may be
best for both himself and Mr. Webster to
revise their opinions.
Light from thb Oyster. Open an
oyster, retain the liquor in the lower or
deep shell, and if viewed through a mi
croscope.it will be found to contain multi
tudes of small oysters, covered with shells
and swimming nimbly about; one hundred
and twenty of which in a row would ex
tend but one inch. Besides these youn
oysters, tho liquor contains a variety of
animalcule and myriads of three distinct
speciesof worms, which shine in the dark
like glow-worms. Sometimes their light
resembles a bluish star about the centre of
the shell, which will be beautifully liimi

Water-Rotted Hemp. The following
is from Com. Wm. Skinner: Since Novem
ber last, there has been delivered by con
tract and obtained by open purchase, by
the agents employed for that purpose, at
St. Louis, Missouri, Louisville, Kentucky,
three hundred and seventeen tons of wa
ter-rotted hemp, which, being submitted to
the customary tests at the rope walk at
Chartestown, Mass., proved of good quali-
HEMP FOR THE NAVY.
The Secretary of the Navy, in his an
nual report to the President, accompanying
the Message of tho latter to Congress, thus
speaks of an article in which our citizens
have a direct interest :
The supply of hemp on hand, and deliv
erable under contracts already existing,
rendered it unnecessary to advertise for
any additional quantity for the present
year. That American hemp can be pre
pared, in quality equal to any in the world,
has been established by experiment under
the most rigid tests.1 The heavy outlay ne
cessary in preparing for the production of
the finer descriptions, suitable for naval
purposes, has prevented many planters
from engaging in annual contracts. The
joint resolution of Congress, of the Oth of
May last, made a great improvement by
authorizing navy contracts for American
water-rotted hemp, for a term of not ex
ceeding five years, at a remunerating price.
I propose to invite, by advertisement,
the hemp-growers themselves to contract,
and by accepting proposals for quantities
of twenty-five tons nnd upwards, and, in
case of equality of bid, to give the prefer
ence to the farmer who grows it, to encour
age the general adoption of the most im
proved process of preparing this important
supply for the navy.
Proposals for furnishing machinery for
the rope-walk at the Memphis navy yard
have been invited by advertisement; and
as soon as it can be manufactured and de
livercd, that important establishment will
be put in operation. . '
This place for the delivery of hemp for
the use of the navy will be far more con-
enient for domestic hemp-growers gener
ally than that at which cordage is now
manufactured, and the facility of access
will justify the farmers in settling their
produce directly to the government, with
out the intervention of agencies or the ex
pense and loss of more distant transpor
tation and frequent shipments.
LETTER FROM JUDGE McLEAN ON
THE ELECTION.
Washington, Dec. 1, 1848
dear ir: niy absence on the circuit
has prevented tho acknowledgment of the
receipt of your friendly letter of the 7th
ult. The election has resulted in favor of
Gen. Taylor,' and every patriot should
hope that his administration may advance
the great interests of the country. Gen
Taylor is a man of unquestionable honor
and integrity, and 1 have no doubt, in the
discharge of his public duties, he will do
what his judgment dictates to him to be
right. He may differ in opinion with
other men equally honest and patriotic, and
such differences may produce excitement
but General Taylor will never be found a
trader in pontics, that he will commit
errors like other .men, I doubt not; but he
will be honest in his errors.
I rejoice with you that the people were
disposed tofihink and act for themselves
If they shall continue to do this, I shall
have no fears for the republic. But I can
not suppress my lears when a partyism
prevails which is justly defined to be "lhe
madness of the many for the benefit of the
few." Under such circumstances, the poo
pie are made the instrument of their own
ruin. I have ever been favorable to our
own manufacturers, but opposed to the
manufacture of public opinion. In this
late manufacture, little intelligence and less
honesty is required, but, if successful, the
operatives mubt be compensated largely at
the public expense.
This kind of business can be only safely
attended to by the people themselves; and
rejoice at any movement which calls forth
the exercise of their unbiassed judgment,
Men who by honest industry, add to their
own and the nation's wealth, and who rise
with the prosperity of that country, have
the deepest stake in the government.

JoNESBonocoii, Tenn., Nov. 22, 1848.
Gentlemen: I have the honor to acknowl
edge the receipt of your Ci.xular ot this
month, and also the published proceedings
in pamphlet form, to which you allude. , I
have perused both, with the attention the
grave subjects of discussion demand, and I
now hasten to respond, though with more
brevity than I would wish on account of
my many pressing engagements. In what
I may say, I intend nothing disrespectful
to you, gentlemen, or tho " citizens of
Charleston," whom you have the honor to
represent. Nor do I intend the slightest
reflection upon the wings of South Caro
lina. I entertain the highest respect for
that Spartan band of whigs, who against
most formidable odds, for a series of years.
have maintained their column unbroken,
and shown themselves worthy of the prin
ciples which they so gallantly espoused.
But with all due deference to them collec
tively, and to you individually, I must de
cline, gentlemen, co-operating with South
Carolina in any thing or at any time. And
in the absence of information, , touching
any new issues which may be made in our
country hereafter, I only desire to know
which side of a question South Carolina
advocates; it will be my duty, as it is my
purpose, to take the opposite side!
In the recent Presidential election, I dis
cover, that your State has voted for Gen.
Cass, a notorious Abolitionist known to be
such He was born an Abolitionist he
was raised one and he is still one having
avowed himself to be a Wilmot Provisoist,
upon the floor of the Senate, in the hear
ing of Mr. Calhoun, who instructed you
to vote for him. I regard Mr. Calhoun
your great leader, as a corrupt politician,
and a dangerous man, seeking to dissolve
this glorious Union. I regard him as in
sincers in all his pretended concern for the
South, and the peculiar institutions of the
South. The leading, politicians of the
dominant party in your State, I regard
as a band of Nullifiers and disorganizes
who, with all their cheap professions of
chivalry, and their affected disdain of the
alledged selfishness of the Free Stales, are
as time-serving and office-seeking, as any
set of politicians within the range of my
observation. And a belief on the part of
Mr. Calhoun, that Cass would be elected
in connection with his inordinate desire
for office, induced him to order his under
strappers in your Legislature to vote for
Cass.
And now, gentlemen, look at the posi
tion your State occupies! Side by side
you stand, with the Abolitionists of Ohio
Indiana and Illinois! Arm and arm
IS
South Carolina with the Hartford Conven
tion Federalists of New Hampshire! Hand
in hand, you are, with the Repudiators of
Illinois? " Cheek by jole," you are mar
shalled among the Murderers and Thieves
of Texas! What a mixture! What polit
ical associations! For my part I never in
tend to be associated with a party which
expects, needs, or seeks favors of South
Carolina!
I regard your proposition for a " Con
vention of the Slave-holding States, togeth
er with an expressed determination "to
resist at all hazards," what you are pleased
to style " the aggressions of the Free Soi
Factions," as a revolutionary movement
having for its object the dissolution of this
Union, and as such I throw it back upon
you with feelings of indignation and con
tempt.
I am a Southern man, with Southern
principles, and ever will be found true to
Southern interests, unless the South, in an
evil hour, should consent to be led by John
Cataline Calhoun, whom Gen. Jackson
sought to hang for treason, and rebellion,
during his Presidential reign!
In conclusion, gentlemen, my advice to
you, and the citizens of South Carolina
whom you represent, is to abandon your
mad scheme of Nullification and Disun
ion, and to submit, as quiet and peacea
ble citizens, to the Laws of Constitution
of your Country. In obedience to the
injunctions ol Holy Writ, "obey them that
have the rule over you, and be be at peace
among yourselves." If Gen. Taylor is the
man 1 take him to be, and you urge your
treasonous schemes of Disunion, he will
carry out the measure Gen. Jackson set on
foot among you he will hang some of
your leaders, and subdue the rest of you
al the point of the bayonet. He will send
among you that same sterling Whig Win.

THE DANCE OF LIFE.
Human life is a mere dance the nurse
ry a (au7-room ! Old maids and bachelors
for the want of partners are compelled to
exhibit in a pas scul. Knavery 'practices
the shuffle, while pride, prudence, and expe
rience, are the professors of the art of cut
ting. Courage teaches the 'en avant,' and
discretion ( 'tne better part of valor") tho
'en urriere.' Some are happy in their choice
of 'partners,' while many are doomed to go
through the whole 'dance' with the dower
less and disagreeable Miss Fortunes and
Miss Chances.
The ambitious and would-be-great are
constantly struggling to show off in a par
ticular 'set;' but, notwithstanding the pains
they lake in their 'steps,' frequently expe
rience the mortification of a 'dos-a-dos,'
when they are anxiously exerting all their
efforts for a smiling 'vis-a vis.'
These are the 'ups and downs' of the
'dance. The 'lords of the creation, (with
few exceptions) are very awkward and un
gainly; while 'lovely woman' is most gen
erally perfect in the 'figure.'
Love is generally 'master of ceremonies;'
but, being rather pur-blind, make the most
ridiculous mistakes in introducing 'part
ners; and although Avarice (who officiates
in the higher circles) is lynx eyed, ha com
mitsas many errors in 'coupling the com
pany as his coadjutor.
Hope illuminates the 'festive wnn'

up again till time-steps in; and throws a
damp upon their merriment the piper
