MY MARY'S SMILfi.
What care I for summer weather,
Since it lasts so brief a while?
Twenty summers come together,
If I see my Mary smilei
I need neither fruit nor blossom,
. Nature's bounties, cheap and vile:
AH my .fruit is Mary's bnsom,
All my blossom Mary's smile.
Should 1 fill, like some',, my eight full.
Of all scenes, from Thames to Nile:
Tell me what is so delightful
As to see my Mary smile.
Let them travel, who in duty
s Visit many an ancient pile;
1 admire no gothic beauty;
Let me see my Mary smile,
Snow-capt hills are brijrht at even,
; Towering upward many a mile;
I am always nearer heaven
When i see my Mary smile.
Cbuds may. hide the sun herr.after,
As they oftthave done erewhile;
care not fo'r nature's laughter,
If I see my Mary smile.
Learning makes the brain but rnudtiy,
Drowns the laboring soul in bile;
This my only book and study;
All I read is Mary's smile.
Side of song runs smooth and steady;
Art could scarce improve my style;
What's the cause? Tis said already,
When 1 boast my Mary's smile.
The following poetry is from the pen of a lady,
a native of the Old Dominion. She now resides
on the ban!: of Tippecanoe creek, in the State of
Indiana, and is a better poet, in our bumble opin
ion, than the hero of Tippecanoe was a politician.
If some of the ladies who design attending the
whig barbecue at Bladeosburg to-morrow, voiild
stay at home and try to emij'ate her example,
even if it should be in writing lines in favor of
Clay, they would be much more respected, no
matter who may be elected. Barbecues and bull
baits are not places for ladies. , ,
Ah, why despise the name of Pofk!
A name that rhymes so well with folk,.
That crowds may rally round this nam?,
And trust to Polk their country's fame;,
'Tis a plant used by dames and. swains,"
To cure their fierce rheumatic pains;
If Uncle Sam is sore beset, i.
Writhing with anguisH, prJn anl debt,
(Worse than disease of joint or limb,)
Surely 'twill health restore to him.
'Tis said the juice, with care preserved,. :.
To flush the cheek with bloom has served.
Since oft in pleasure's idle riiaze,
Nature's fresh, blcoras too soon decays,
Ye fair, who wish the cheek's bright glow,
On Polk your favor, then, bestow.
Surely such halcycn scenes 'twill raise,
Aa, vying with these fabled tlayp
The golden age which poets sing, ,
New bloom to every cheek will bring.
A simple viand for the. poor ? .
Js this same Polk: why ask for more?
If beauty, health, and food it give,
Let Pi Ifc t-5 Surie forever live. , . i
AV'hen, spring high, our eagle proud
('leaves with its the thunder cloud,
n tee same talon, bright and keen,
Where the green olive branch is seen,
The imperial bird the Volh shall bear,
rtiftb ihro-igh the azure field of air. .......

Mr. Graham and the Public Lands.
Look at this record- ; , - ,
Mr. Graham, the Whig, Candidate. or
Governor, was a member of, the ; Legisla
ture in 183S. He supported Ray ners
Resolutions. lie was an actor in the Cau
cus which framed them, and a leader of
the party which passed them. Among
those Resolutions, was the following:
"Resolved, That wc consider; l)i2 Pub
lic Lands of the U. States, a3 the common
property of all the States, and that we
therefore condemn the. late Act ofCoo:
gre5S; allowing settlers on the public lands
the rig'.ht of pieemption at.the, minimum
price, as afl act of gross injustice to the od
Stales who originally ceded them, or who
contributed to a common fund for this pur
Our Senators in Congress at that time,
(Brown and Strange) were accordingly in
formed by Mr. Graham & Co , that . they
would" represent the witd)CS of a majority
'of the people? rtf this State, by opting to car
ry out the foregoing Resolution. Now
Look at this record.
Mr. Graham succeeded in driving Mes-
Srs. Brown and Strange from their seats in
jthe.Se,wbe5,Vr.,OT. vote for
pre-emptions., lie succeeded in getting
himself elected to one of the vacant places,
-; - '
. , WV "''ft. CM num ixortn
Carolina, he voted for the Distribution
Act, which enacted:
"That from and after the passage of, said
Act, every person being the head, of a fam
ily, or widow, or single man over the age
of twenty-one years, and being a citizen of
the United States, and who,. since, the 1st
of June, 1840. has made, or shall hereafter
rcake, a settlement in person on the pub
lic hir.ds &c. 4 Should be entitled to a Pre
emption. "''(Are Act of Congress passed
4th Sept., il.
If Mr. Graham had ben actuated pure
ly by ambitious self interest, he could not
have been guilty of grosser inconsistency,
or a more palpable violation of political
good f.iith. In view of such proofs, ordi
nary candor would dictate a confession of
guilt. In 4hc brguugu of the Resolution,
he did an act, whilst Senator, of gross in
justice to (North Carolina) one cf the old
States." He voted for pre-emptions to
"settle rc on the .public lands," and
thereby, according to his own shewing, vi
olated the ."wishes of a majority of thr
people of his own State." lie disregard
id his own solemn declarations of what
were her rights and wishes: he condemned
others for what they .did not, assuming
that they had been guilty, and yet upon the
first opportunity, he himself .perpetrated
the offence which by his own Resolutions
in 1838, he had denounced as unjust
grossly unjust to N. Carolina.
Mr. Graham has attempted, we under
stand, to excuse hi.T.stlf by pretending
that the pre-emption law, which he voted
against in the Legislature at home after it
had passed, was not identical with the pre
emption law he supported in the Senate.
How uncandid! The offence was great;
but really the excuse is worse far worse.
We have quoted the Resolution word for
wcrd it was against ajlowing pre-emptions
o "settlers upon the public lands."
The Act he voted for in the Senate, pro
vides, in express terms, for allowing pre
emptions to "every man and widow who
has made or shuJl make settlements on
the public lands." It is an insult to com
mon sense to attempt tc make a distinction
between what Mr. Graham as a member
of the General Assembly thus denounced,
2nd what as Senator he approved and sup
ported by h'.s vote! It remains tc see
whether on enlightened people i v ill trust
him with the high interests of the State,
after such an inexcusable betrayal of public
"Out of the frying pan into the fire "
The "Register" of Tuesday last, charges
the Signal with a misstatement of Mr.
Clay's vote against repealing the Bank
rupt. Law; and pharisaically takes great
credit to himself, for his charity in no.t de
nouncing it as a wilful falsehood When
wc sianu in neeu 01 tne negusrer s cnaruy,
we shall probably be more grateful for jls 1
1 c 1 ti . 1 .
exercise than :n the present instance. Our
statement (quoted by the Register) was,
that Mr. Clay was,
'In favor of a Bankrupt law, authori
2, wholesale repudiations of honest
debts; and voted against the tepeal of Ihe
Uankriipt Act." : . , ;.
Arid that, too, after he had received in
formation cf the wishes of his Stale that it
should be repealed., . ... .. ,
, Now, docs not the Register . know ; that
Tlifc ABOVE IS TRUE? that HEN
RY CLAY DID ,: VOTE AGAINST
TIIE REPEAL OF THE LAW, AS
WE CHARGED? ("If he does not know
it, as a political teacher, it was his duty to
have known it;" and that he.may not fall
into like errors again, Vc lake the liberty
of referring him to the record , of the Sen
ate's proceedings on ,28th Jan'y 1342,
where he will find that, .'fupori the Bill of
the House of. Representatives to REPEAL
THE. BANKRUPT LAW," HENRY
CLAY voted "NAY," and it was lost by
a majority of ONj. . . :. .
The Register will no doubt agree that
he lias adopted an exceedingly, poor way
to excuse his fault of publishing a lalse ac
cusation against the Hon. Andrew John
son j whilst for the purpose not of vindi:
eating himself but of retorting a like
charge against us, he could not have fallen
upon a more unfortunate paragragh in the
last Signal, than the one he selected. ib.
Mr. Clay Mr. GrahantOJJicc Stekers.
If Whig politicians. were judged by their
professions, one would suppose lha.t J.hey
have no love whatever .for office seekers.
In this however, as in other respects, they
profess one thing, and practice another.
,Mr- Clay, for his part, has been a stand
ing candidate for. President ever since the
year 1S23. r Just twenty years ago, he
started in pursuit of that ofGce, First, he
ran before the people in 1824 and got beat
em ,He then .bargained with j. Q. Ad
ams, to getfint6 tjie "line of safe. prece
dents," and they two fought in.cop&Ytncr
ship, against Jackson in ls2s . and were
both routed. In 132, Mr. Cla again
tried the chances, and took a nvce against
.lack son aloiie, and was distanced!. In 1S.36
he could net even get the nomination, bui
he tai led Harrison in the West, and While
in. the South,, to breakdown Va.i Bui en
and the. Democratic party, and the .whole
ombination was defpajed. In IS10, Mr.
Clay was again in the field, and once more,
in his own person, sought the nomination
at Harrisburg, but was unexpectedly set
aside by his own party to wait till ano
ther time! In lS44,he is still seekingtbe
office, and, in the desperation of , a last
struggle for the shining prize so long rov
eled, we find him, riding the circuit cf the
whole .South, and from tovvn to .town, jfrom
New Orleans to. Washington City,, letting
himself down to the .electioneering h i-
of a stumD candidate for the Presi-
V hat. an antipathy these V.'higs
feel for ouirc seekers!
Vrt'.. : M f u .1 T- 1 1 i-
ISor is Mr. braham, the V ederal candi
date for Governor, far behind his great lea
der. He has been a candidate , for more
high offices than any man of his age in N.
Carolina, or perhaps in any other Slate,
lie Ins done as little and sought as much
p3y,for it, as any; man ve know of. , In
1835, he. was a candidate for Speaker of the
House of Commons, and was beaten by
Mr. Haywood.. In 1S36, he was again an
unsuccessful candidate, for the , Speaker'
chair. In 1S35,. he vyas a candidate, for
Judge,, and was beaten by Geh. Saunders..
In 1837,. he was a candidate for Congress in
the, Wake district, and. was beaten by Dr.
Montgomery, .In 1S39, he was asnce more
a , candidate for Speaker and was elected.
In 1840, he was re-elected Speaker of the
House, and during that same session. was 3
candidate for. Senator in Congress and was
elected in place cf.Mr. Strange, whom he
had aided to . instruct, out of his 1 office.
How disinterested! In 1S43, he. was again
a candidate for U. $. Senator, and a3 de
feated. Now, in 1844, he is a candidate
for. Governor of. Nortfi Carolina. :l Ilere
then, is a young mn who, in the lapse of
ten years, has been eight times a candidate
for the highest offices in the State; . and yet
he and his supporters affect to denounce office-seekers!
. , Kealjy, , really,, it would
seem that no one else of the Whig party is
lit to run for office but Henry Clay and
William A. Graham. ib.

Philadelphia IUots. There has been
another disgraceful , riot in Philadelphia.

A very recent letter rf0m a friend iii
New York informs is that ihey expect
daily in that city, c repetition of the Phila
delphia outr.ige.s. No, matter who is im
plicated, let the military do their duty.
The Philadelphia "Inquirer, in. its: ac
count of the riot of Sunday night, says:
The heaviest discharge of fire arms took
place at about half past ten, when two pie
ces of artillery were fired in quick succes
sion against the military ; and instantly fpl
loweifby.a rolling fire of. musketry, evi
dently from a large body of soldiers. A
rain,a brief pause, ensued; only brief, how
ever, for the discharges and volleys, both
of artillery and musketry, nqw camp, thick
and fast. The scene in the immediate vi
cinity was indeed. appalling; wives scream
in for their husbands, children,, for their
fathers, and all alarmed and terrified in the
extreme. Mangled and dead bodies ever
and anon home along, reports of friends or
relatives killed, rushes of the crowd from
some false or real ground of apprehension;
all bore witness to a frightful drama that
was in progress.

became frightened and ran off; she exericd
herself tor some time to retain her ieat in
the saddle, but the horse still becoming
more unmanageable, she was finally thrown
off, her foot remaining in the stirrup. The
horse sped along with frightful rapidity,
