DOUBLE PLOT OF THK DOUDLE
Of all the ingenious intrigues to which
the difficult game Mr. ('lay has underta
ken to play has given birth, that through
which the abolition candidate has been ap
propriated to their purposes is the most
subtly contrived and adroitly managed
Mr. Hirtiev's attitude as the stubborn can-
f whiueM. if it wife- poihle to succeed

dal, for ?: sufficient number of coons, in
the garb of democrats, to turn the cale in
favor of the candidate whom they had ee
irtly conspired to nominate. This can
didate was Mr. Hikney- Ve learn from
the Detroit Fee Press, and fiom the pro
test of the demociatic party in Saginaw,

theni off in all directions, to spread far and
wide, in ihe neighboring Slates, the nomi
nation of Hirney its made by the demo
Cratfi. before the mass of' ihe p-rty could
get together and disavow the proceeding.
The near approach of the presidential elec
ion, too, rendered it impossible to art est
the eflect of the imposture, which was sei
zed upon by the Clay clubhand Clay, pres.
ses everywhere, to work out the design of
the conspiracy for which they were pre
pared in advance. We now see, in the
different sections, how ingeniously this
party of tricksters play it for their purpo
ses. In Albany, and in other places where
the abolitionists are to be driven off for
Clay, his partisans get together, assume to
be an abolition meeting, & denounce Birney
as a deserter from the cause; declare a
want of confidence in him, and absolve all
abolitionists from voting (or him; and they
bring unanswerable proof (if it were true)
to establish the fact. If he were taken up

other evidence would be wanting, to- con-

other hand, it gne io rel eve Clay f Ins

uppoed coalition which it ostensibly
dissipates, while in reality it is the very
of cementing it.
We perceive thai several of the abolition
presses understand the artful manner in
which their party is lo he entrapped, and
are laboring to throw off the coil which is
to identify them in the fate of federalism.
The fortunes of this parly (which has en
countered nothing but defeat and disgrace
from the time of Adams ths elder up to
this hour) are not s ) tempting at this mo
ment as to induce that whole sect, which
has undertaken to found itself on the prin
ciples of the declaration of in l.-pendenc',
to forfeit its high pretensions, to fall with
Mr. Clay vho, while, as a slaveholder,
he insults Mr. Mendenhall for meddling
with his slaves, and promises every thing
to the South, sends his relative, ( asius, to
court the abolitionists to hi: embraces, 'un
promising every thing to them. ' he Uli
ca Liberty Press holds cut fr Hirnvx
against all the cheats and seductions to
which the party it supports has been sub
jected in the late aitfu! appeal.v.of .vhig ry.
It denies, on the authority of Mr. Hirney,
the statements made by i he Clayitfs as lo
his being an anti tariff man, a Texas mai,
or the candidate of the democratic party
for any office:
uHere again, (says the ediicr,) the
whigs wl.ll overdo, as they aie accustomed
to do. In their attempts lo prove Mr.
Hirney a traitor to liberty, and an ally of
the loco, they betray not only their u a-
lignity, but ihe falsehoods to which the
can resort to make out a case. And mark
if, reader, they will peisist in these state
ments until after the election!
"Hut more than this, (says the Hoitou
Chronicle, nf Oc-nber 15:) W F. ARK

and no conversa'iou ever having taken
place, with Mr. Fttzhugh or w.th any oth
er person, eut of which such a story could,
by any distortion, have been manufactu

ning to end."
It rext repels Clay's advance (made
by his proxy Cassius,) nnbss he c;n give
seine "guaranty" to m.tke good his prom
ises to ihe abolitionists. I he Liberty Press
s.i s to Cassius:
. "Now we frankly confess tha',; give u
ihe guaranty that Henry Clay, by h'sf lec
tion, would. .'liberate all.jhV slave?.' and we
will vote for him! An I we asure Cas
sius that the failure of his mission wil!
turn, not upon the stubbornness of the lib
eri y men in t fusing. to vote for a man 'who
they know would liberate ever slave,' but
in Ins failure to show lhat either Henry
Clay or h's party 'has any design or aim
at ab litionP " , . .
Now here is the rub. Mr; Clay's pled-
g"s down South stop the mouth of Cassius
with a demand for security." Give us ''the
guaranty" (say the abolitionists) that your
friend will fulfil 5our promise to ''liberate
all the slaves," and we go for him. We
should not be surpised to hejr, before the
end of a week, (if the Hirney intrigue fails,)
that Cassius gives bond and security for
Henry to the abolitionists.'
Affray and Death. A fight occurred
between W'. W. Rives and Charles Tait,
in Wilcox county, Ala., on the 1 4th, in
which Rives was mortally wounded. Tait
made his escape eastward. This brutal
butchery is thus commented on by th6 -hawba
Gazette: cThis affair vvould be
revolting enough to nature even were it
entirely disconnected with it. So far as
we have been able to learn, they were brief
ly these:' Mr. Rives was engaged to be
married to Mi?s Sarah Tait, daughter of
Capt. J. A. Tait, and sister to Dr. Charles
Tait. The consent of all the family, ex
cept perhaps Dr. Tait, had been given, and
the father had given Rives a certificate to
obtain, which he did, the marriage license.
The marriage was to take place at 8 o'clock
on Saturday morning. Accordingly on
that morning Mr. Rives, accompanied by
one or two friends, went to Capt. Tail's to

The Si imee Twins. We extract from

count of Chang & Eng, and their families
Palmyra, mikes Co. (N. C J Sept.2.
You may be aware that some few years
since, the Siamese Twins, Cann, and
wXf. retired from the public gze, and
-etihd down in this county (Wilkes) a
farmers. You will also recollect, that du
ring last year it was published in some of
the newspapers that they had mmied two
si-ter-. This notice was treated as a hoax
by some of the journals. & I incline to think
public opinion settle I that the twins were
still living in single n!esedne s To my
surprise I find that the supposed hoax is a
literal fact; ami thai f ese distinguished
charactf rs are marri-el me! Mr. Chang
and Mrs Eng are well known t several
of my personal acquaintances, and are said
f i-. ..i-r ort.t iltu iiuliifit.wul. T...fl-h
of the Ladies has presented their particular
"lord" with an heir,' in the person of a fin,
fat, bouncing daughter!
It is said that Chang and Eng. wiih their
wives and children cowiemplate making a
tour through this country in-the course of a
year or two.. The twins enjoy excellent
health are very lively, talkative, and ap
parently happy; and will doubtless prove
more interesting and attractive in their
second tour th,n they d;d in their first over
the civilized world. Having families to
provide for, as prudent husbands and fath
ers, they may think their bachelor fortune
insufficient for ail the little Changs and
Engs of which they have the promise."
