ANSWER TO THE WHIG SONG,
"Come vote for the patriot Clay."
What! vote for him upon whose brow
Shame's ever burning brand shall lie!
He who once sold his country's rights
To foul misrule to gain thereby.
Wc vote for hira whose bloody hands
Yet reek with murdered Cilley's gore
Whose every act's so linked with crime,
E'en guilt might curses on him pour!
.We vote fr him, who could his arm
'Gainst Randolph! honor'd form upraise,
With dastard, foul, vindictive ha,te;
Is this the subject of your praise?
We vote for him, who even now,
Vhen no more young, but sere and gra)
Ills country's laws in bonds must bind.
His vengeful, murderous hind to stay.
We vote for him, who once could taunt
His fellow freemen with the cry
'Of slaves assuredly we must have; ...
If they're not black then white we'll trj !'
No! bear to him the answer back;
Insulted, taunted freemen give
That no 'dictator' yet we want;
That free awhile we yet would live!
Go tell him freedom yet hath charms',
Nor ever basely will be kneel
To Marat of a mburitain clan,
While Virtue lives, or hearts can feel.

A VOICE FROM THE HERMITAGE
We are happy in being enabled to lay the
following letter, (a copy of which has been
kindly furnished u$ for publication.) from
that hero, patriot and statesman, Andrew
Jackson, before our readers this week. It
will be read with interest by the democra
cy of New York, not less as cdming From
one who, by the force of his genius, has
!i'ft the imprint of his character on the
age, than from the flatlet ing mention it
makes I of one whom New York has ever
delighted to honor. His mention of the
services arid worth of the democratic nom
inees is not less deserved than j'ist, arid he
may rest assured that the democracy be re
"will rally cordially to the support of Mes
srs. Polk and Dallas," and show by their
vote that the)' are known and appreciated:
Hermitage, June 25, 1844.
Dear Sir: I ha've received your letter of
the 5th of June, expressing the approba
tion of the dem'ocruts of central Nev
York of the rio'niuiato'n recently made at
Baltimore of Mes-fs. Polk and Dallas.
These nominations vveie as unexpected
to us as they could have been to any of our
friends in New York. Op' to the publica
tion of Mr. Van Dufeti's views on the
Question of annexing Texas,' and even so
late as the assembling of ihe cctoventfon at
Baltimore. I enttitained the belief that he
would have bt en the nominee. I he p'ur?
ty of his chaiacter; the ability arid fideli
ty which distinguished not only his con
duct as President, but his whole course
from his first entrance into public life in
the legislature of his native State as the
sound and' orthodox advocate of republican
principles; and above air, hfs noble beam
ing after the defeat of IS4!0" a defeat
whic'i id! take nothing from him' but
"office, and give the victors nothing b
uuuauon ann uisappji..V"v", w "
siderations so commanding and general,
as to prepare me for his selection as tne
candidate of the democratic party, not
withstanding the disagreement exislirig
between him and a large portion of the
people respecting the propriety of annex
ing Texas to th'e Unron.
It seems, however, that while all the
Members of the convention concurred in
the sentiments which I have expressed as
referring to his exalted character and dis
tinguished services", a considerable minori
ty 6biected to hfc selecfioh as a candidate
for the presidency, on accoutit of his posi
tion nri'iK TWac niirvstlhn: and' that', OUt
of deference 1 6 this minority arid froiii
desif" to produce entire uha'riirhity in the
.""lks nf ih.- oartv. the two candidate's'' now
I,. .! -( . as being equally adcept
6inS those n' r,tf!f i"
wnicn would insure, in- c0 pi "
tion,a administration of the fedciw'
ernmenton principles of sound and orip0
That a compromise of this character
should have been brought about mainly by
the instrumentality of Mr. Vari IJuren's
known personal and political friends, act
ing ori the spur of the occasion, and that
this act should have been soon promptly
approved by. him, is another proof, not on
ly of his purity and noble disinterested
ness, but of the extraordinary prevalence in
the parly to which he belongs of the senti
ment which regards men as subordinate to
measures. Conduct like this will give ad
ditional lustre to his fame, and brighten
the page of democratic history.
1 make these remarks before answering
your inquiry respecting my opinion of the
nominations made by the convention, be
cause I desire not to Be misunderstood, and
am aware that the Texas quest ion, as an
element in shaping llie opinion of many of
the members of that convention, has been
supposed to nave lud its origin in the un
worthy motive of producing discord in the
democratic ranks. t.
It is due to myself, and to those who
have corresponded with me rn W'i sub
ject, to say, that there i- no j;ro,!t!d for
such an imputation. I ho;! ion;; i.r .'crtained
the opinion, when the suhjoct . vvas brought
to my notice by the Hon. Mr. Dtown,
that Texas dughi to be icunited to our ter
ritory; and I am satisfied that the policy
of this step, ori the score of national safet y
and peace, will be acknowledged by the
great body of our citizens, after giving it
due reflection. If the people of New
York, and those of the northern States
generally, did not, on the first view of the
subject; regard it as those cf the South do.
it is riot because they are less sensitive to
points of national safety, but because they
are less familiar with the territory in (jo ra
tion, and the dangers likely to spring up
in it, if it remains independent of us, or
enters into commercial alliances with Eu
ropean powers. With these remarks, I
am prepared to say to you that I trust the
democratic party will rally cordially to
the support of Messrs. Polk and Dallas.
They ate pure, tried, competent, and hon
est. Mr. Polk wa9 raised near me, , He has
performed his duty in every public station
that he has filled many requiring great tal
ents and consurhmate tact and judgrhent.
On all the great questions, from the Pana
ma mission to the present day, heha's been
consistent, orthodox, and. rue to the stan
dard of old-fashioned Jeffersonian democ
racy. In his private life, no man his been
more fortunate in the practice of every
virtue. Without a speck ori his moral
character, he can defy the slanderer, and
rest secure in the good esteem of all who
have had the pleasure of his acquaintance,
whether friends or foes in politics.
1 make these remarks in reply to your
kind letter, and conclude by tendering you
my thanks for the friendly and respectful
terms in which yoU are pleased to a!lude
to my character and ser vices.
Your bbedient servant,
M. M. Jones, esq , Utica, New York.

the city of Mexico that the Mexican Con

A una the four millions of dollars and 30,
000 additional troops, called lor by him for
his proposed invasion of 1 exas; they had,
however authorised him to raise one million
of dollars, if he could do so without having
recourse to a forced loan, and also to take
the number of men required from the 36,
000 now in the service, provided he would
supply their places with a like number of

fitted out secretly at New Orleans under

A Frightful Scene.TheS. Y. Arrier
icari says that on Monday evening, about 8
o'clock, a bull; made alrriost wild by being
chased, ran in the basement ot a church, in
Sixth st., hear the Secorid avenue, where
some ol the congregation were at a prayer
meeting. 1 he animal bolted in just at the
commencement of the exercises, arid the
scene that followed may be imagined: such
a screaming and jumping out ot the win
dows pell mell was never before seen.
The animal went the whole length of the
room, knocking down one lady, hut doing
htr no injury save a great fright, and after
butting at the wall until exhausted fell
down, and ropes being obtained was secur
ed. This was the second church the ani
mal had visited, we understood, in the
course of the evening breaking up the ex
ercises in both places.

Melancholy Suicide. T. M. A spin

last evening by taking laudanum. His bo

arid one full of the poison in his pockets
when found, his gold watch, chain, money,
&c, were all safe. No idea whatever can
be formed of the cause of the rash act. He
was rich had been retired from business
for a number ot years, had an interesting
family, and appeared to have every enjoy
ment this world can afford, in addition to
which he was a regular communicant at St.
Thomas's Church', and universally respect
ed by all who knew him.
Pin Sticking. A Boston paper states
that the pm manuiaciory near ueroy,
Conn., has a contrivance for sticking pins
in na ners. which is quite marvellous. It
takes in England GO females to, stick in one
day, by, sunlight, DO packs, consisting of
302,460 pins the same thing is performed
here in the s'arrYe time by one woman. Her
sole occupation is is to pour them, a gallon
at i time, into a hopper, from whence they
come out all neatly arranged upon their sev
eral papers! The mechanism, by .which
the labr of fifty-nine persons is' daily sav
ed, yet remains a mystery to all but the in
ventor; and no person but the single one
who attends to it, upon any pretext .what
ever, is allowed to entei the room where it
operates! VVe are. ahead of the English

Singular ' Phenomenon. All at once,
oh Wednesday, afternoon last, a well on
the premises of Mr.. .Jacob Meyens, in
Lyme, in this county, commenced over
flowing and still continues with undimin
ished force. It is estimated that the dis
charge is at least sixty hogsheads per min-
ute! The water is cold, and we learn ihat
the well has been dug and used for many
years. To enable our readers to judge
something of the projectible force ofihe
water, it is , said tHat good sized stones
thrown into the well are q'uekly ejected.
The rebundancy of water, overflowing the
adjoining land, is doing much damage to

Egg Hatching. Mr. Child;?; iri a
letter to the Boston Courier, gives the
following amusing account of the opera
lions of the egg hatcher, or eccaleobion.
It is indeed a curious affair in natural, we
had almost said, artificial history. .
"Among the novelties now striving to
arrest attention is tlie Eccaleobion or
Hatching Machine. Its imposing name i
derived from two Greek words, 'l lirinj:
'bri h life." It is about as large as a bureau,
consisting of a series of small ovens, warm
ed by pipes conveying steam. The uni
lormiiy of temperature prevents the possi
bility of addling eggs, which are produced
rv variations from heat or cold, occasioned
by the lien's unsteady performance of her I
domestic duties. I felt romb resistance to
this substitution of machinery for mothers:
and if I were z henj 1 would get a protest
against b'eir.g thiis iHrust aside from . the
uses of creation. Tliis is an tiltirhaie form
ofihemecli uiic.il spirit of the age, wherein
men construct artificial 'memories, and
teach grammer by a machine in which the
active verb is a little hammer pounding on
the objective case.
But what is the use of quarrelling with
it? Does net the Eccaleobion Hatch widi
perfect certainty every egg that is not stale
or impetfect? Does it riot turn out lift',
chickens a day, or twenty thousand a year?
And will not this reduce the price of poul
try lo the heait's content of the epicure?
t hese machines are sold for 120, ano
S75 is charged for one of half the capaci
ty ol production above described. .Some
of the farmers iri Jersey and Long Islan
are invested capital in this way, with the
expectation of profit..
The chickens thus hatched almost inva
riably live, and seem healthy and lively
When cold, ihey run into the holes under
the ovens. The hard, silent box seemed to
me a poor substitute for a mother's heart
warmth; and the friendly, clucking voice
which gathers them under her brooding
wings. But the little things seemed well
contented with their lot, never having
knowri anything better.
. QJWe regret to learn that, ihe Sheriffof
Rensselaer county, in attempting to serve
certain process on the tenants of Wm. P.
Van Rensselaer;, esq., has been resisted
and thie power of the jaw set at defiance.
VVe understand that yesterday the Sher
iff, attended by his Deputy, Mr. Allen, of
Lansingburgh, and a civil posse ol some 75
citizens, proceeded from Troy for the pur
pose of serving declarations iri ejectment
upon tenanis of the Manor in lhp towns of
Stephentown and Sandlake. When the
posse arrived at Alps Corners, in the town
of Stephentown, they, were met by about
100 men, disguised as Indiana, armed with
musket?, pistols, hatchets arid other weap
ons. The men surrounded the posse un
hitched the horseo from their teams and
turned them loose. They then demanded
and obtained from Deputy Sheriff Allen
his papers, which were immediately burnt,
and the Deputy arid a Mr. Eastman, of
E.st Nassau, were tarred and feathered;
some of the men standing over them and
threatening them with personal violence in

case they made the least resistance. TJie
remainder of the posse only escaped similar
treatment by a promise to. leave the town
forthwith'; which they did and all returned

Mystery ih Newport, Mass A man
named Manchester belonging to Tiverton
R. I., has been committed to jail in the
town' of. Newport (Mass.) on a charge of
murdering his wife, who when he married
her was a young widow with two children
He lived with her several months and
then left her at the house of her mother,
stating that he could not support her. Af
ter living apart a few weeks, he visited
her, some time in the month of August last,
and directed her to cume through the woods
and meet hirii early the next morning, at a
certain place'in the road, where he .promis
ed' lu nieet hex with' a hrscfa wigon and
take her to New Bedford. She according
ly left her home for that purpose, and sinco
no trace, of her can be discovered; Man
chester, the same day arrived in New Bedr
ford without any baggage; arid shipptl
immediately for a voyage to seaj previous
to his sailing he presented to a female rela
tive, an old fashioned gold ring, which has
been identified as having been worn by his
wife at the time of her leaving home. It
seems that on a second voyage he was ta
ken sick and was sent to Boston; after re
maining in the U. S. Hospital at Charles
town, (Mass.) for some time, his place of
residence having been ascertained, he was
sent home. On its being known that ho
had returned to Tiverton, the whole town
of Lowell was thrown into a state of fever
ish excitement in consequence of the mys
terious disappeararice of the woman.
Manchester is in such feeble health that
it is supposed he will die before the setting
of the court before which lie must be tried.

of the 20th inst. relates a case that will
make every reader shudder. Such awful
attrocilies would, not be severely enough
punished by death. The case is that a fell
low who calls his name McDermit, ancf
who is a pedlar, got acquainted with
young lady in. Pittsburgh, about sixteen
years of age, , of respectable parentage and
connections; (he father reputed (o be rich,
and by extraordinary deceit prevailed upon
her to elope with him contrary to her pa
rents' desires. He told his victim that he
wa rich, and had a large store at the South
that he. would take her there that she
should dtess :as she pleased, and live in
splendor. She believed, yielded to her
ruin, and they left on a steamboat, which
arrived at Cincinnati on the 17th. On
their passage down, his treatment of her
after the first day was the most brutal that
could be imagined, causing her to submit
tohim,in the presancte of persons, until the,
mate; threatened to throw him overboard?

at Cincinnati and she refused unequivocal
