Extract from an advertisement of Mr. Vorhman. "He deems it unnecessary for him lo bestow any encomiums upon this im provement in the art of compressing Cotton. Suffice it to say, that the ease and cheapness with which it can be erected, and the small force required to work it, arc sufficient to recommend it; saying nothing of its superior power and durability."

JOEL BATTLE.

Jackson. The friends of Mr! Crawford asserted to the last, that the condition of his health was such as to enable him to adminis ter the duties of the office. I thought otherwise after I reached Washington City, and visited him to satisly myself, and thought that physical impediment, if there were no other objections, ought to prevent his election. Altho' the delegations from four states voted for him, and his pretensions were zealously pressed to the very last moment, it has been of late as serted, and 1 believe by some of the very persons who then warm ly espoused his cause, that his in competency was so palpable as saess. age, 5 leet G or 7 inches inp-""'P" was sso pajpaDIG as height, dark color, a pert lively look, clearly to limit that choice to two .'inri Ml cnoil.-iiKr k int in tfn ..

Mr. Cla?.We thought it probable, after the several statements respectin the alleged overture to Gen. Jackson had been made, that Mr. Clay would have presented to the public some re marks on them in lolo; particularly after his spirited defence at Lexington, on the 12th July last, before Gen. Jackson's statement appeared. We declined at that lime publishing Mr. Clay's speech, viewing it merely as an attempt to in fluence the elections, which were at hand, in Kentucky and also, as some what irregular, for an accused person to enter on his defence before the witnesses for the prosecution had been examined. As the investigation will probably rest here for the present, we have concluded to present the outlines of Mr. Clay's speech to our readers, that they may ful ly understand what has been said on the subject. We have omitted that part of his speech which refers to the specific terms of the proposition, since Mr. Bu chanan has stated that it was unautho rised and also such parts of it as were merely local, or, in our opinion, not bearing directly on the subject under consideration: "In February, 1825, it was my duty as the representative of this district, to vote lor some one of the three candidates for the Pre sidency, who were returned to the Edgecombe County, Aug. u, i s?7, fr House of Representatives-, It has of the three returned candidates. In my view of my duty, there was no alternative but that which I embraced. That I had some ob jections to Mr. Adams, I am rea dy freely to admit; but these did not weigh a feather in comparison with the greater and insurmount able objections, long and delibe rately entertained against his competitor. Had 1 voted for Gen. Jackson, in opposition to the well-known opinions which I en tertained of him, one-tenth part the ingenuity and zeal which have been employed to excite prejudi ces against me would have held me up to universal contempt; and what would have been worse, I should have felt that I really de served it. During two years and a half which has now intervened, a por tion of the press, devoted to the cause of Gen. Jackson, has been teeming with the vilest calumnies against me, and the charge under every carneleon form, has been a thousand times repeated. Up to this time, I have invited investiga tion, and demanded evidence. None, not a particle has been ad duced. It must have been a conviction that the justice of the public re quired a definite charge, by a re sponsible accuser, that has at last extorted from Gen. Jackson his letter of the Gth of June, lately published. I approach that letter with great reluctance, not on my own account, for on that I do most heartily and sincerely re joice that it has made its appear ance. But it is a reluctance ex cited by the feelings of respect which I would anxiously have cul tivated towards its author. He has, however, by that letter, crea ted such relations between us, that, in any language which I may employ, in examining its contents, I feel myself bound by no other obligations than those which be long to truth, to public decorum, and to myself.
