few of the most ultra, prejudiced, shifts,
may attempt to decry him on account of his

wWcli requires strength of thought, he is
vastly superior to the Strongest man which
they can bring against him.' As a speaker,
every Impartial man who hears him must
admit, that be is by far the strongest man
who has ever .canvassed the county of Pike
for a seat in our legislature. Possessed of
a warm heart," i social ' disposition,' good
judgment and an active energy, ne is. usi
gainings hold upon the. affections , of the
people, which is tbe cause of itlie great un
easiness lately manifested in the colnmns of

a desperate struggle, their cause is lost,
and the people's candidate elected, the. a-
nonymoiis scribblers for that paper have
meanly appealed to the basest psssiona of
the human heart to excite ' prejudices
mongst the good citizens of the county, and
to array class against class. But this base
effort will meet with the rebuke that it de
serves.1 'The people will burl it back in

The only sin which they can find in ' Mr.
Henderson is that he is a poiar young man,

tbey would endeavor to bunt him down.

The St. Louis Republican, and Columbia
Statesman, have been endeavoring to nro.
duce the impression that Juge king aVoids!
Major Hollms on tbe stump, truly-tbose pa
pen will icruple at nothirg. When-Major
Rollins receivod the nomination of Ihd'whig
convention, Judge King, bHiig in BoonVlIIe,
addressed him i courteous note, proposing
to make joint appointments and canvass the
State together, which' the Major declined,
at that time; on account of private engage
ments. : Judge King ' then ' tmblislied ' his
appointments and entered upon the canvass.
Whether Major Rollins has arranged his
domestic affairs satisfactorily We have nev
er hearj, but the first thing' we did hear
j a a .
iroin mm was, uiai ne naa published - a list
of appointments in a different direction from
that taken by the Judge. They hare we
casionally met when the Major bas upon a!
ocoasiens, but one; we are informed, claim
ed the privilege of following in debate.
Would these partizan presses, that advocate
a no party, President,' have Judge ; King
like themselves, .to disregard every princi
pie of etiquet and, correct feeling, by bore
ing Major Rollins furtlier upon the subject
Was it not the duty of Major Rollins,, ..after
the. note of Judge King, as soon as he .was
ready for the canvass to make it known, to
the latter, that their appointments might b
made to agree? This duty, was clear,, and
his failling to comply with it shows to whom
a separate canvass is attributable.

Th above extract is taken front an arti
cle' in the Republican, of the I2th inst, - in
hich a labored' effort is made to' produce
the impression abroad that the democratic
parry ia Missodri is disaffected towards their
candidal, Cast 'fad : Butler, whom they
voted fr in convention; ''and whom they
ill delight to vote for at the Foils in No
vember, This effort of the Republican, to'
falsify' the feelings of the democracy of Mis
sonri, is characteristic of the stupedous
system of misrepresentation carried on ' by
ma a ayior press iniouguout me union.
That the editor , intended . by , the,. article
frosa which we make the above extract , toj
convey the impression that there was a Van
Buren or Barnburner influence in Missouri,
ripening resdy for an organisation, is very
plain. : This is what ; we call ;wholesali
mtsrep.resentation. If there is a party in
Missouri in favor of Van Buren, or the
Pronto it is reasonable to suppose it would
have itr'aeVoeatel in the North: ' Eastern
part of th State. ' If such a ttcket was
formed in Mis vouri,' this district, we believe
would have to borrow an elector from some
other region. We nave heard but one
man advocate doctrine- apprrximating at all
to the position of Van Buren and that i man
is a whig. We don' t think he is strong , a-
noughin the fa'ith, however, to beenrne las
elector. The whigs, .here, have more sym
pathy for tbe course of Van Bursa than the
Democrats, by far; and fY'xn the: tone of the
Northern press ' he. will rooeive a larger
sopport from ' their ranks in November.
There are quadruple as mJiny disaffected
whig papers in the North atf have bolted
from the Democratic 'ranks. 1 This is the
question upon which the most of them have
bolted, and the whigs hare m tnuc.1 larger!
portion of Proviso med than their: aclVersa-l
tica. The ' democrats of the North yet
have' principles around wfiicb to rally,' and
