It thus refer to the resolutions by the Nom inating Convention in connection .with the prominence given to the question of annex tiom ...... i, . . ...U. v. LO As te the re-annexation of Texas, "at the earliest practicable period," we have no ob jection to it, if the persons who are now so hot in the pursuit of that object will wait till such period arrives. We take it for granted that by practicable" here is meant,not mere ly convenient for speculators, but in accord ance with. tbe dictates of honesty and faith. The Convention have resolved that "it is in expedient and dangerous to exercise doubtful constitutional powers,'' and we hope this Will be borne in mind when we are called upon to decide on the "practicability" of re-annexing Texas. It has resolved that tbe Constitution deas not confer authority on the Federal Gov ernment, directly or indirectly,' to assume the debts of the several States, and we hope that this too will be borne in mind, when we are called upon to decide whether it is "practica- oie - to assume trie ten million debt of the six prospective states to be formed out of the Texas. The Convention resolves that Con gress has no power "to interfere wtth or con trol the domestic institutions of the several States," and we hope this will not be for gotten when Congress is invited to extend and perpetuate those "institutions" by the for mai esiaoiif nment oi some nan dozen more of these precious slaveholding- communities. All these unequivocal and long established principles of democracy, we repeat, ought to be remembered when abjudicating the "practi cability" of appropriating the territory of Mex ico. Gek. THOMPSON, SANTA ANNA.AND THE MEXICANS. A public dinner was recently given by tbe citizens of Greenville, South Carolina,to Gen. Waddy Thompson, in honor of his return from his mission to Mexico. So numerous was the assemblage that the tables filled the p az za of the Mansion House, as well as the dining room. In his speech responsive to a toasc in his honor. Gen. Thompson spoke of Gen. San--ta Anna, and related many anecdotes of him, greatly to bis honor. His career had been re markable from bis boyhood. He had risen from the rank of ensign,unaided but by his own courage and talents, both of which Gen. T. thinks he possesses in an eminent degree. His whole career has been marked by inci dents showing a mind always fruitful in resour ces, and a courage, moral and physical, that shrinks from nothing. He was a man of high impulses, strong feelings, and at times, of stor my passions, which had sometimes led him to the commission of acts which cannot oe justi fied or excused. But his natural disposition is not only not cruel, but kind and benevolent. Gen. T. mentioned many anecdotes to prove this, and emphaticaliy that he had on no occa sion allowed an opportunity la pass unimprov ed of doing a generous action, when be could with propriety have done it. He also spoke of the Mexicans as a polite, kind,warm-hearted people. He had met with nothing at their hands but politeness and kind ness, although the circumstances under which he first went to Mexieo had induced him to anticipate a different reception. He should be ungrateful not to bear testimony to their many amiable qualities, and said that there was no other foreign people n whose prosper ity and advances in the great career of civil liberty be felt an equal interest. Mexico was the first-born of our revolution, and nobly and gallantly had she struggled for the establish ment of institutions of which ours was the mod el. Her advances had already oeen great, and she possessed the elements ot a great people. There was no country with which he would so much regret to see ours involved in a wat: every consideration of duty and policy and humanity forbade it-, arid he added, that at though the Texian .war had caused a good deal of exasperation against us, were was a very strong disposition to ciltivate friendly re lations with us; of this she had given repeat ed proofs. At tbe great State Whig Convention of New Jersey held" in Trenton oh Wednesday, May 29.h, the following resolution was adopt ed -'t?,vJimL That we tender to the Whigs of the Union our warmest and sincerestthan for the nomination, 01 ititL.uuvtj rac I INGHUYSEN a man so pure, so virtu ous, so incorruptible, so honestly devoted to 1 A"n..-n r-4 s-nan whatever principles ne pivicooco, need fear to pledge his lifethat he will never hM tha confidence of his countryand a Statesman whose talents and genius have ne ver been called to any st a; top, however lofiy, which they have no aoorneu. .......

The card, howeyer, needs no commentary it is plain and explicit, and opens the door wide for the admission of any fact General Hamilton or the whigs may have it in their power to disclose. Will Mr. Clay dare to give the same permission in regard to all the fetters one letter in particular which he wrote to the present editor of the Globe, pending the same presidential election"? We aie fully sat isfied that he will noldareto give such per. mission. A CARD, To the Editors of the Nashville tJnioti, Gentlemen: My attention ha been cal led to various newspjr articles referring to a letter said 10 have been written by me to Gen. Hamilton, recanting the charge of bargain made against Mr. Clay when he voted for Mr. Adams in 1825. To put an end to all such rumors, I feel it to. be due to myoelf to state, that 1 have no recoU lection of eve? having written such a letter, and do not believe there is a letter from me to Gen. Hamilton, or any one else, that wrll bear such a construction. Ot the charges brought against both Mr. Adams and Mr. Clay at that time, I formed my opinion as the country at Urge did from facts and circumstances that were indisputable and conclusive, and, I may add, that this opinion has undergone no chancre. If General Hamilton, or any one else, has a letter from me on this subject, which the friends of Mr. Clay Jesire to be made public, all they have to do is to apply to him for it As for myself, I have no secrets, and do not fear the publication of all that I hae ever writ ten on this or any other subject. ANDREW JACKSON, Hermitage, May 3, 1844. The Pennsylvania n may consider this letter as a piece of "straight-forward manliness,"but we consider it rather a piece of "trickery and evasion. ucn. Jackson says tie tormed his opinion "from facts and circumstances that are indisputable and conclusive." JYbw it is wcli known that James Buchanan was the person with whom this charge originated, and that Gen. Jackson repeated it on Mr. Buchanan's authority, and what grounds were there for Gen. Jackson to predicate even a suspicion? Mr, Buchanan, in letter dated August 8, 1827 to the Lancaster Jourral, said: "I called upon Gen. Jackson on the occa- sion wmcn 1 nave mentioned, souiy as Ms friend, upon my own individual responsibility;. and nor as tne agent Mr. day er any oiner person, I never have been the political friend tf Mr. Clay, since he became a candidate for 1 he othiie ot President, as you very well Know Until 1 ta jv Gen. Jackson's letter to Mr. Bev erly of the 5 h ultimo, and at the same time was informed bv a letter tromtne editor Or. he U. S. Telegraph, that 1 wa9 the person to whom he allu ied, the conception never entered my mind that he believed ms to have been the agent of Mr Clay and nis mends, or that I intended to propose terms of ant kind for them, or that he could have supposed me ca pable of expressing an "opinion that it was right to figi it such intriguers with their own weaoons." tad no authority from Mr. Clay or,his friends to propose any terms to General Jack, son in relation lo their votes. NO 22 DID I EVER MAKE ANY SUCH PROPOSI. TION; and I trust I would be as incapable of becoming a messenger upon such an occasion, as it was known Gen. Jackson would be to re ceive such a message." ' f , It would" be well before the leaders of the lo cofocoism revive this charge, which, has long since been exploded, to look at the cotempo- raneous opinion, of its oreihreu, wnen me transactions were fresh in recollection and af ter a committee of Congress had fully inves tigated the facts. Mr. JJixcHiEwbo in com mon with others, has revived this slander for want ol mbre substantial and honorable wea pons against Mr. C11T, thus.spcke of the transaction at the time it was frein all men's minds: . -From the Richmond Enquirer of Feb. lO, "As to the other questions rMa which we nnhhsh thi dav such copious debates, we do not hesitate to say ihat Afr. Clay has met the charge as a raanougniio meei nis -earless promptitude and open defiance are the surest indications 01 ms innocence, xm, combined with avowals from almost all quar ters of the House, aid the uuiform informa tion in the last letters from' that citycan : leave no doubt of the result of the investigation, nor does Air, Kremer shrink but we suspect he will seek to escape by a sort 01 special pieaa-mff-suchas Afr iUcDuffie haa thrown into bis amendment. Be it as, it may, the inquiry is beoua and it ought tone prosecuteo wua en ergy; the whole, matter should be probed to tbe bottom; no loop bole ought to be left to hang asin"le doubt on, for in times like; these ths people ill expect their Representatives not only to be chaste, but free horn all suspicion. Mr Clay is innocent of thts charge. , We are fully prepared to see tbe committee acquit bim of Ujts imputation "of bartering his vote, .for .an offlce.'" ... ; I ' . Two or three weeks ago, it- will be remem bered, the subject was debated in Congress; at that time, Mr; .White, of Kentucky, most trolvaod-eloquently remarked, that, the. ao tnenUbal charge had been announced, who was at that time. Speaker of the iibuse, con. scious of his own innocencend noaest man as he came frora' the hands of bis God, tbrewinto the teeth of bis enemies, a denial of the charge and challenged, before tbe Congress of the "2 Z V .. I United States, a fuU investigation of the -matter. . That a committee was appointed,1 with iilr.. Barbour, a distinguished Virginian, at its head; that this charge had been referred to that committee; that the individual who had first made the charge had been brangrht before th committee, and tbe record that not a word oi evidence was produced, and that the commit tee reported tbe innocence of Mr. Clay. The proofs that Afr. Clay had made an his mind to vote for Mr. Adams in preference to uenerai JacRson, lonsr before Congress mads a choice, are many and conclusive. Mr. Ben ton, in the following extract of a latter written by him, offers proof more strong than anr that can be advanced at this late day: 1 1 Washington Uecember 7, 1827. ; "Sin You: lettexof the 19th ultimo, cov enng the. Jjexinzton iVirmnia Intelligencer of that date, has been duly received, and in an swer to the inquiries you put - to me, I have to state, that tbe article to which- voa invite mv attention is substantially, not verbally correct. so tar as it represents me as saying that I was informed .by JWr.CJay, in the fore part of De comber, 1821, that be intended to vote for Afr. Adams. There is no mistake in the date, as a visit which I made to your 'part of Virsrmia about that time enables me to fix it with cer tainty." . . . . . - is aster Beverly, it is well known receiv. ed this charge from Afr. Buchanan and circu- ated it most conclusive!? against Mr. Clav-- but Carter Beverly, before his death, denied and refuted the charge he had made and wrote thus to Mr. Clay: "It will be no doubt matter of some aston ishment to you in receiving from roe the pre sent address, I will not preface it with any kind of apology, because in doinjr itl justify my mind in the discharge of an act of con science, and a duty that 1 feel , the utmost pleasure in performing. Although the time is far gone since I be came very innocently instrumental in circula ting throughout the country a very' great at tack on your character and virtue as a gentle man, and certainly a very heavy o no as a pub lic man, I feel de&irous to relieve you, as far as I can, from the slander, and my own feel ings from.the severecompunction that is with in me, on having been though neither directly nor indirectly, your personal accuser, yet that I was drawn directly into the representation of an attack upon you 1 again say, that I am most thoroughly con vinced that you were most untruthfully, and therefore, unjustly treated; for I have never seen any evidence to substantiate at all the charge. . CARTER BEVERLY. Cen. Lafayette, whoe testimony cannot be questioned; who was free trom party pre judices, who had no motive to vindicate, no in terest in condemning, thus spoke of his recol lection of Mr. Clay's position. ' ; v "My remembrance concurs with your own on this point: that in tbe latter end of Decem ber, either before or after ray visit to Annap olis, you being oqt of fhe Presidential candida ture, and after having expressed my above mentioned motives of forbearance,"!, by way of confidential exception, allowed myself to put a simple, unqualified question respecting your electioneering gues and intended vote. Your answer was that in your opinion the actual health of Mr. Crawford, had limited the con teat to a choice between Mr. Adams and Gen. Jackson, that a claim founded on military achivevements did not meet your preference, nd that you had concluded to vote for Mr Ad ams." John Quincy Apams, the venerab'e patri ot and sage, whose purity and veracity have never been doubted even by. the most ribald partizan, has most distinctly met and denied this charge! In hia letter to a New Jersey committee, after he retired from the Presiden tial chair, he 6aid: "Upon htm (Mr. Clav) the foulest slanders have been showered. Lonf known and ap preciated, as successively a member of. both Houses of your National Legislature, as the unrivalled Speaker, and at the same time most efficient leader of debates in one of them; as an able aud successful negotiator for your own interests, In war and in pence, with foreign Powers, and as a powerful candidate for the highest of your trusts the Department of j State itself was a station which, by Us bestow al could confer neither profit nor honor upon him, but upon which he has shed-unfading honor by the manner in which he discharged his duties. Prejudice and passion have char ged him with obtaining that office by bargain and corruption. Before you fellow citlzens,in the presence of your country and of Heaven, I PRONOUNCE. THAT CHARGE TOTAIXY UNFOUN DED. ..This tribute of justice is due from me to him, and I seize with pleasure the opportu nity offered me by your letter of discharging the obligation.' And on a more recent occasion, when trav elling through the west, he received the spon taneous tribute of thousands of . bis country. men, elicited by h-s high moral worth and statesmanlike services, be again spoke of this charge, as follows: . i "1 thank you, sir, lor the ooportunny yon have given me of speaking of the great states man who was associated with me in the ad ministration of the General Government, at my earnest solicitation who belongs not to Ken tucky alone, but to the whole Union; and- is not only an honor to this State, and this Na tion, but to mankind. The charges to which you refer, 1 have, after my term of eervice had expired, and it was proper ior me. 10 speax, de nied before tbe whole country; and I here reiterate and reaffirm that denial; , znd as 1 ex pect shortly to appear before my God, to an swer for the conduct of my whole , life, should these charges hate found their way to (he Throne of.

'The following is an extract from his speech at the Nashville Inn, as reported in the Rashviiie union, uct Zotu, io4l; . No National; Bank was chartered and tbe President is entitled. lo the lasting gratitude of his country, which as one of her citizens , J cheerfully accord to him, for . arresting , the do minant majorily in Congress from their mai career, and saving his country from the domin ion and political ncubus of the money, power in the form of a National Bank.', - . ' j . Mr. roue ana the Stale Uanks. From the report of the Committee of Ways and Means, of which Mr. Polk was Chairman made in Afarch, 1834, we give the following quotation, asking the reader, to compare the past history of State Banks, with wbat this Locofoco Presidential candidate says: , 'The Committee are satisfied that tbe State Bank are fully competent to perform all . tbe services which the General Government ought 10 require in the collection and disburse ment of the revenue, and to afford also all fa. cilities to the internal .commerce and EX CHANGES of the country, which have been derived from the Bank of the United States." And again, in a speech delivered in Con gress, on the 2(hh of June, 1834, Mr. Polk thus concludes ao argument in favor of &tate Banks for Depositories of tha Public monies: 4I have thus briefly . considered the two principal points of objection the alledged n- safely of State Banks as public Depositories and their tnconpetency to perform .all the du ties required of them as agents of Government. As regards t'.e first, it has been my object to show, from well attested facts, that they are as safe as any ot her description of agency could be. That occasional losses, during their em ployment for a long period of time, may , bo ' -.1 - . ...i r.. i. possioie, is not comruvencu. . xjul quvuivi these occur, (as is not anticipated,) it should be remembered that such losses are incident to all orodit, and is not likely to be .greater. Nor indeed, under the many guar Js . contained in this bill f or thjt public security? So great, as, that whtch might reasonably be expected from this empU-yment of. any other description of agents,1' "As regards the second objection the al'edged incompetency of these Banks as fiscal agents the manner in which they have performed, and are per forming these duties, must remote all doubts which may have existed on that point. It is no loiiger a question of doubf whether they can. with facility and promptness, transfer the public funds to the most distant points for, dis. bursement, and perform all other duties tohkh as fiscal agents, they may be required to per form.1 Mr. Polk and the Svb. Treasury. While Mr. Polk was canvassing fof.tbe of fice of Governor 1 1 this htate, last, summer, the Locofocos of Memphis addressed him a long string of Questions, to which he replied at length. One question asked hini was.-,Are you in favor ofthe Sub-Treasury System paes. - . . " - . .njn , 1 1 ea oy congress in iou, ana repeaiea in 1841?" To this the little, man replies:' ,. v- - ., ''Ianswer that I am. .

' Mr. Polk and Sterling Bonds. 4 , The Locofoco candidate for the Presidency, is opposed to a National Bank, because. Far. eigners will become the owners, in part,at least, of the stock of such an.- Institution;' but he is decidedly in, favor of Foreigners owing stock in our State Banks Seethe following extract from bis Message to the Legislature ol Tennessee, in 1639, p. 6: : -. ' "It is respectfully submitted, that if the mil lion and a half of State Bonds authorized by the. act and r emaining unsold, be now sold,lhat the Bank Would be enabled by the increase of her available roetalic capital, safely to afibrd such additional facilities as would be required to relieve the immediate pressure, until Jbe proceedings o( the preaentcrap will afibrd more solid and durable rebel.
