Mr. Clay and the American Sys
tem. In his reply to the invitation of
the citizens of Madison county, Ky. to
partake of a public dinner, last summer, ,
Mr. Clay observed:
"All who are opposed to the American
System all who are opposed to Internal;
Improvements, are now united with others in
the endeavor to defeat the re-election of the ;
present Chief Magistrate."
On reading this declaration, we were!
forcibly struck with the idea that the -Administration
had abandoned all hopej
of support from the Southern States; and :
this opinion was recently confirmed, by
the dismissal of Mr. James Barbour from!
the Cabinet, the only Southern member
in it, thus leavin- the South without a
representative in the Cabinet Councils of
the nation, a circumstance unprecedent-l
cd in our history. We are now pre
sented with another branch of the "Ame
rican System," recently promulgated by
Mr. Clay, the mouth-piece of the Admi
nistration, which we are pleased to see
immediately met the severe rebuke it so
richly merited. The following is from
the Kentucky Gazette:
"We have understood that Mr.
Clay, during his late visit, in a
conversation with several gentle
men relative to the Southern
States, remarked, that he hoped
our citizens would refrain from
driving hogs, &c. to the South
"let us (said he) starve the rebels."
When it is recollected that in our
trade with the South wo .innimlW
draw several millions of dollars,
what should be thoup-ht of that in.
dividual who would recommend a
suspension of all lnterennrsn wltl
the people of those States, for the
numane purpose ot starving them?
Yes, Mr. Clay would call upon us
to give up a source of wealth, in
order that his political enemies
might be exterminated. The
man who could utter such a senti
ment as the one attributed to Mr.
Clay, deserves to be eternally ex
ecrated. It is, however, altogeth
er in keeping with his 'war, pes
tilence and famine' prayer."
The last Bargain. In the preceding
article our readers are presented with a
specimen of the spirit which animated
xMr. Clay just before the recent Ken
tucky election it will be seen by the
following extracts from a speech subse
quently delivered by him at Cincinnati,
that he anticipates his fate, and is for
''backing out" as quick as possible.
In a few months the people will fix the
mark of reprobation on those who are
"bankrupts to honor, decency & truth,"
and "for their accommodation," will
no doubt on the 4th March next, give
them an opportunity to "cultivate a
farm in Kentucky," or elsewhere, un
disturbed. But hear Mr. Clay:
"Cultivating a farm in Ken-
tucky, and having other objects of
private concern, 1 have found it
necessary, both on that account
and the relaxation from official
business indispensable to the pre
servation of health, annually to vi
sit this quarter of the Union, dur
ing the period of my connexion
with the Executive of the United
States. In these visits 1 have
frequently met large portions of
my ieiiow-citizens, upon their
friendly and pressing invitations.
My object has been called in ques
tion, and my motives assailed. It
has been said that my purpose
was electioneering. If it be in
tended to charge me with employ
ing improper or dishonorable acts
to secure an election, I deny the
charge and disclaim the purpose.
I defy my most malignant ene
mies to show, that I ever, durin
any period of my life, resorted to
such acts to promote my own elec
tion, or that of any other person.
1 have availed myself of these as
semblies, and of other opportuni
ties, to defend myself against any
accusation, publicly made, and a
thousand times repeated. I had
a right to do this by the immuta
ble laws of self-defence. My ad
dresses to the public heretofore
have been generally strictly de
fensive. If they have ever given
pain to any of my adversaries,
they must reproach themselves
mtn its intliction. There is one
way, and but one way, in which
they can silence me. Mv t radii -
cers have attributed to me irreat
facility in making a bargain.
Whether I possess it or not. Them
is one bargain which, for their ac
commodation, I am willing to en
ter into with them. If they will
prevail upon their Chief to ac
knowledge that he has been in
error and has done me injustice,
and if they will cease to traduce
anu abuse me, I will no longer
present myself before popular as
semblies or in the public prints,
in my own defence. That is one
bargain which 1 have no expecta
tion of being able to conclude.
I; or men who arc in a long estab
lished line of business, will not
voluntarily quit their accustomed
trade, and acknowledge them
selves bankrupts to honor, de
cency and truth."

tration papers, that the attach

Jackson is much weakened, and
that the vote of the state is some-j is none such they play a nobler

ticulars, however, will exhibit the
slight foundation on which those
assertions rest. Out of twenty
six members of the House of Re

sends to Washington, there are
only six which can be called Ad

following is extracted from a let

surprised to see my name announ

they choose to exercise it: but one
of the great principles involved in
this contest is, to redeem the cha.

power will be used honorably.
The friends of Gen. Jackson in
Tennessee and New-York disdain
to imitate the management of Mr.
Clay's friends in Kentucky, or of
the partizans of Mr. Adams in
Massachusetts: if their candidate
can obtain any votes, either in
New-York or Tennessee, he is
welcome to them. It would be
ungenerous in a triumphant party

The Conspiracy. Under this

journals are giving circulation to
a downright falsehood. It is sta

to take the election from the peo
ple; that the present Legislature
will give the whole 36 votes to
him, and that Mr. Van Buren has
written that the General should
have the whole, if it were neces
sary to secure his election. It
will be seen by an extract from
the Albany Argus, how promptly
this last fabrication of the admin

The fall term of the SuDerior Court
for this county was held in this place
last week, Judge Norwood presiding.
On Thursday, David Hattaway and Wil
liam Brown were tried for the murder of
John Abrams; Ilattawav as nrincinal in
the first degree, and Brown as principal
in the second degree. The Jury retur
ned a verdict of manslaughter against
both of them. In conseauence of the
good character heretofore sustained by
tnc prisoners, the Judge decreed that
they should only my a fine of SlO each

60 days and thereafter until the fine and
costs were paid. Hattaway, Brown and
Abrams were in this place on the dav
the result of our last elections was de
clared; they got into a drunken frolic,
Hattaway and Abrams fought, Brown
prevented others from interfering and
separating the parties, .and Abrams was
beaten in such a manner as to occasion
his death in a few days.
Our attention has been called to a cir
cumstance said to be unprecedented in
this county. Of the 48 Jurors of the
original pannel summoned to attend the
late term of the Superior Court for this
county, 46 attended, 1 died abroad, and
1 had left the State. This is noticed as an
evidence of the unusual health at this
season of the year, enjoyed at present
generally throughout the county.
