Mr. Fillmore vs. the Demor ratic Pamphlet—Judgement by Default. At a regular mieeting of the Central Rough and Ready Club of the parisli of Jefferson, held ti Rough and Ready Hall, on Monday evening, the 22d instant, the President having invited Alexander Phillips, E^q., to the chair, and appointed Dr. James Jones, assistant Secretary, called the attention of the Club to their proceedings at the last regular meeting, in reference to a pamphlet which has been circulated in that parish, charging and purporting to prove from the journals ol Congress, that Millard Fillmore is an Abolitionist, and with a few explanatory remarks, submitted for consideration the following preamble and resolutions, which were read, and on motion, unanimously adopted : Htareas, At the last regular meeting of this Club, on Monday evening, the 14th inst., the President brought to the notice of the assembly a pamphlet supposed to have been put forth by the leaders of the so called Democratic party of Louisiana, charging that Millard Fillmore, the whig candidate of the true Republican party for V<ce President, is an Ahditionist; and purporting to contain extracts from the journals to prove the charge by his votes iu Congress. And Whereas, The said President on his official responsibility, in the name of tili« Club, then and there pronounced said charge to be false and slanderous, and supported in said pamphlet by a sup pression of the most material and impor tant parts of the record, and by exhibiting unfair, uncandid and garbled extracts from the journals, which, if fairly given, would have proven it to be without the shadow of foundation. AnS Whereas , The said President, then pioceeding to review said pamphlet, clearly showed to tbe satisfaction of every candid man present', that it was a tissue of false, fraudulent and deceptive represen tations, arfully and cunningly devised to make a false and erroneous impression upon the mind of the casual and unsus pecting reader. That in attempting to prove the charge by showing that Mr. Fillmore voted against Atherton's resolu tions in 1&38, the first and the only one of them involved the question of abolition ism, and which emphatically declares that Congress has no power to interfere with slavery in the States of this contederacy is wilfully suppressed, because Mr. Fill more voted for it, and that vote of itself proves that he is no abolitionist. He also showed to the satisfaction of all candid minds, then and there present, that the said pamphlet was false, fraudulent and deceptive in this, that it represents Mr. Fillmore in numerous instances as voting alone with Adams, Slade and Giddings, to make the impression on the casual ami unsuspecting reader that Mr. Fillmore generally acted and sympathized with those men, when .a candid exposition of the votes would have shown that in al most every instance he voted also wiät a large niimber'of the leading members of the so-called Democratic party, whom the authors of this pamphlet are now proud to claim and act with, but whose names have been purposely suppressed in order to mislead and deceive the honest voter, and make him believe this false and slanderous charge. He further showed that, said pampMet gravely charges Mr. Fillmore with hav ing justified, by his votes,, mutiny and the murder of white rneu by negroes.— That an attempt is therein made to prove this monstrous and shocking charge, by merely showing that he voted against a motion to lay on the table Gidding's reso lution touching the mutiny and murder on board the brig Creole , in 1842, That a fair and candid extract from the jour nals in that case would have shown that his motive in giving that vote was not to favor said resolutions, but, on the contra ry, to prevent them from being received, or in any mariner entertained by the House. That in this vote, on which this ternble charge is founded, he voted with a majority of 1-Jo, including a large num ber of Democratic members, still hailed with pridt as brethren by the authors of this pamphlet, and among others were John B. Dawson, Edward D. White and John Moore, the entire delegation from Louisiana. That in defiance of all truth, the at tempt is made to prove that Mr, Fillmore supported and aided Giddings in his dis graceful and fanatical course on that oc casion, because he voted against a reso lution to censure him—when a fair expo sition of the whole truth would have prov en the reverse, and that he opposed him at every step. That so far from giving him aid or encouragement, when the speaker had decided that Giddings had a right to speakon the resolution as a ques tion of privilege, Mr. Fillmore took an ap peal from the decision, which appeal was sustained by the House, and Giddings thereby prevented from speaking in bis own defence. He further showed that said pamphlet containing these false and infamous slan ders, and these fraudulent, unfair and garbled extracts in pretended proof of them, had been sown broad cast over this parish, and probably over the whole State, in such a manner as to avoid and escape all responsibility on the part of i s authors. That it is addressed to the people of the State of Louisiana, without date, or any mark on its face to show from whence it issued, or any other evidence^of its pater nity than its striking resemblance to cer taiu leaders of the so-called democratic party in this quarter. That those who concocted it, and put it forth to abuse and scandalize one of the best and purest of their fellow citizens, merely to gain' a party advantage, were bodi ashamed and afraid to put their names to it. But having been distributed among the peo ple of the parish of Jefferson in the pre sence of said President, by the President of the Cass and Butler Club of this city, in the presence of Col. Isaac T. Preston, President of the Central Democratic As sociation of the State of Louisiana, and with his implied sanction, the said Presi dent of this Club, then and there boldly challenged that distinguished individual to appear before the people of this parish in its defence within a reasonable time, and notified him that in case of his failure, he should consider all his charges and al legations in reference to it as aforesaid, taken for confessed, and that he would proceed to take judgment in the premises by default. And Whereas , Seven days have since elapsed, and service of said notice having been acknowledged on the record, by an announcement in the Morning Chronicle, and the said Isaac T. Preston having failed to appear and plead, answer, or demur to the indictment thus brought against the association, of which he is President, before the bar of public opi nion, it is therefore ordered, adjudged and decreed by this Club that judgment be, and is hereby taken against said pamph let, on all and singular, the foregoing alle gations, by default. In consideration of the premises, be it therefore unanimously resolved, as the sense of this Qltib, that said pamphlet contains a false, slanderous and libellous charge against an American citizen, whose character, both public and private, is not otjly above reproach, but above sus picion. That the evidence in support of said charge is false, fraudulent and hypo critical, that the authors of it have given proof that they knew it to be so, by fail ing to put a responsible name to it, and sending it forth as a miserable, fatherless bantling, that they are ashamed and afraid to own. That the authors of it have been guilty of an attempt to cheat and swindle the honest and unsuspecting voter out of his vote, by "false and fraudulent pretences." That such conduct, in the ordinary transactions of life, and a resort to the same disreputable means to obtain the goods or property of a fellow-citizen, would be justly visited by the laws of the land with severe and ignominious penal ties, and that as a moral and political crime, it merits no less than the unquali ficd censure mid côndemnatic a of all good men of all parties. Iîesolved, That the foregoing preamble and resolution be published in the Com mercial Bulletin, the Bee, in French and English, the Commercial Times, Die Glocke and Live Oak. JAMES II. ADAMS, Trcs lent. E. G otthel, ) J ames J ones, J Sect - ' '.aries. Out With It. One of the richest specimens of the mingled hyp crisy and hardihood of the Locofoco leaders, is to be seen in the fol lowing note to the Milledgevdle Recorder. Just look at it, honest Democrats, and tell us what you think of the dirty and dis creditable manœuvre : [For the Recorder.] Correspondence between Southern De mocrats and a Northern Abolitionist. —As soon as it was certainly known tli!?t Ho race Greely of New York, had joined the Democratic party, a portion of'he Demo crats in one of the counties of the Seventh Congressional District wrote to him Lr help to beat Mr. Fillmore, since they had got to be one and tbe same, and wished to know if Mr. Fillmore was not an Aboli tionist! Greely said no : that he was so strong a slavery man, that he could not support him. Disappointed in the object, the letter has been laid away. Certain Democrats have got it, ar.d the public want to see it. Come gentlemen, pub lish it. O glethoppe. The idea of Southern Locofocos en deavoring to unite with Horace Greely— the most formidable and violent of the op- ponents of the South—for the purpose of obtaining proof that Millard Fillmore is not sound on the slavery question, is cer tainly a master piece of ingenious effron tery. But, unfortuuately for the base de signs of Locofoeoism, instead of obtain ing the proof, it has caught a Tartar.— Greely, in his unmitigated hostility to the South, says to the letter writers that "Mr. Fillmore is not an Abolitionist, but that, on the contrary, he is "so strong a slaveiy man that he (Greely) could not support him." It is worthy of remark, in connec tion with this reply, that all the Northern Abolitionists oppose Fillmore. Giddings, Vau Buren, Tuck, Dick, Niles, Hale, W'ilmot and Prestun King are his bitter est foes. Yet Southern Locofoco prints pretend that he is unsafe and unsound upon the slavery question. If Mr. Fill more was opposed to the South, would tlia Abolitionists go against him 1 Would they not rather support him, if he belong ed to their faith 1 Would an Abolitionist oppose an Abolitionist ? The idea is pre posterous. We trust the Taylor Press of Georgia, continues the Bee, will never cease cad ing for the publication of the correspon dence between the Locofoco leaders and Horace Greely, until it is produced. Out with the letter ! Give Locofocoism no respite until it lays before the public all the particulars of this contemptible but abortive intrigue. Anecdotes of Gen. Taylor. Occasionally it occurs that a man will want to write a letter to his frends, and has no materials to do so. Without hesi tation he applies to the "old man" and gets »II he wants, pen, ink, paper, and wafer, which comes from his private stock, which is always at the service of the sol diers. While reviewing them, to see, no doubt, how they looked after their scrimmage, an old soldier, who served under him in the Florida war, proposed, at the topof his voice, "Three cheers for old Rough and Ready," which were given with all the honors. As soon as they had subsided, the old general, every feature in his ope« countenances speaking volumes, giace fully took up his chapeau and returned thanks, and added—"Gentlemen. I would be happy to treat you all, but I have got nothing, except some Rio Grande water, with which to do it." ' On one occasion a volunteer, getting tired of discipline, thought he would re lieve himself of it, for a time at least, and with that view absented himself for a week without leave, and made a trip to the country. As soon as fiia absence was known in tf e camp, he was proclaimed a deserter, and men sent in pursuit of him. He retu ned, however, before he was ar rested, and immediately madefiis way to the old general, and told him, in mitiga tion of punishment, be was always accus tomed to open backwood life, and it went hard with him to be confined so much.— "Well," said the general, "don : t do so again, my boy, without leave," and direct ed him to go to his quarters. That man thinks General Taylor is the best man living, and he would willingly lose life it self at his bidding. A Noble Sentiment .—In Matamoras, a gentleman said to General Taylor, "i understand, general, that you have said you were here as the officer of your gov ernment, and asked no questions as to the right or wrong of this war." The old general, with much animation replied : "Beuveen my government and a foreign nation, I never ask a question— my gov eminent is always right. General Taylur's Letters .—Many have supposed that the letters and des patches ofGen. Taylor were not written "by himse'f, but by another (Major Bliss.)« The doubt arises from their excellence of style and sentiment also. Not forgetting that General Gibson has said that on seventeen different Court. MartiaU at which he and General Taylor met, the latter was invariably selected by the other members to draw up their re port, our object mainly is to relate what, has been stated to have been the sub stance of a conversation on this subject between Major Bliss and another highly respectable gentleman in the western part, of this State. It was this : • "Well ! Major Bliss, they say the Gen eral (Taylor ; ) don't write his own letters,, but that you do it for him " Major B.— "I suppose I know about as much about that as any other man; and all that I can say is that every despatch during the campaign has been written by the General himself—The most I have ever ventured to do was to dot an i or cross a t, and I should like to see the man that would dare do more.— Salem Gazette. The most Millingtaryest Man in the Nation. —A rabid locofoco who was very much dissatisfied with the nomination of "Old Zack," began cursing the "Feder als" for their inconsistency in supporting a military man. "These Feds," said he, "made a great outcry against Gen. Jackson because he was a military man, and now they have gone to work and nominated the most millingtaryest man in thtnation.—N. Y. Mirror. Lower Classes .—Who are they ? The toiling millions, the laboring men and women, the farmer, the mechanic, the inventor, the prodocer? Far from it. These are nature's nobility, God's favor ites, the sa'.t of the earth. No matter whether they are high or low in station, rich or poor in pelf, conspicuous or hum ble in position, they are the upper circles in the order of nature, whatever tbe ficti tious distinctions of society, fashionable or unfashionable, decree. It is not low, it is the highest duty , privilege and pleasure for the great man and the whole-sooled woman to earn what they possess—to work their own way through life— tobe the architects of their own fortunes. Some rank the classes we have alluded to, as only relatively low, and in fact only the middling classes. We insist that they are absolutely the very highest. If there is a class of human beings on earth, who may properly be denominated low, it is composed of those who spend with out producing, who dissipate the earn ings of their fathers or relatives, without being or doing anything in ai*l of them selves. A beam has been found in the ruins of ancient Ninevah, which must have been there for several hundred years before Christ.— Ex. That is nothing ! An antiquarian, now travelling in the eastern countries, has found a dried fig leaf in the Gardeft of Eden, supposed to be one of those which Adam used to cover his nakedness ! Now that if worth telling.—Hartford (Ct.) Ga zette.
