.WING hern induced, at the solicita

Democratic party") to take charge of the
Republican Press in this place, we will
hereafter, on every Friday morning, issue
a Democratic paper, under the above title,
at the office of the late IFilmington Mes
senger'" in the town of Wilmington."
As we have given a brief outline of the
principles the "Journal" advocate in
our first number, we think it unnecessary
again to reiterate the political doctrines it
will be our constant and earnest endeavor
to inculcate. On the present occasion,
therefore, we will merely state, that the
"Journal will be the uncompromising
opponent of each arid every "link" in the
whole of the "great chain" of Whig mea
sures a United States Bank a Protective
Tariff the Bankrupt Act Internal Im
provements by the General Government,
&c. &c. While on the other hand, it will,
so far as our humble abilities will enable
us, be the firm friend and supporter of the
Constitution as it was left us by our fath
ers and of a strict construction of that
Constitution, thereby ensuring the rights of i
tne several States which compose Confed-
eracy. But we set out with the idea of GKS. JACKSON AND .MR. ADAMS,
not going into details. It would be s' v , tT - - , - , .,

the necessity there exists for keeping on

of the greatest commercial importance of
any in the State: it is situated in a Demo
cratic district: there is a great deal of in
tercourse earned on by the citizens of the
lower portion of the State with thi place,
and consequently a Press lure would be
calculated to do as mech good,' in diffusing
information, as perhaps a! any other point
Jn the State. Again, there are, we believe,

Hermitage, Oct. 24, IS 14.
My Dear Mr. Blair: On the 12th in
stant, I had a return of hemorrhage, and
two days after, a chill. With the lancet to
correct the first, and calomel to check the
second, I am greatly debilitated. But be
ing aroused by J. Q. Adams's address lo
the young men of Boston on the 7lh inst,
(sent to me on the 22d inst. by my fiiend
Mr. Robt. Armstrong,) I made a concise
reply thereto all that my feeble health and
the absence of my papers permitted. 1
sent this to the Nashville Union, and in
that paper of the 23d, it will reach you.
I trust you will give it a place in your
Globe, to meet the falsehood in the ad
dress. You will observe that Mr. John Q. Ad
ams reiterates the false statement made by
him . 'years ago,' in a new form; for he
says: "This very boundary of the Sabine
in the Florida treatv was, before it was fi
nally proposed to the Spanish minister 0
nis, by the direction of President James
Munroe, shown, by me to the hero for his
opinion and advice, which was in its favor."
All this statement I pronounce now, as I
did the first one, when made eight years
ago, a falsehood. If Mr. Munroe wished
my "opinion and advice, why did he not
ask it himself? He knew that I came to
Washington, undr impressions with re-;
gird to the movement in his cabinet to ar
rest me, which would not allow me to have
interviews, or hold communication with
either Mr. Crawford or Mr. Adams.
Soon after the triumphant vote of the
House of Representatives, acquitting me of
all the improper conduct alledged in the
resolutions of Clay and Cobb, I left the
city of Washington, having, the day after
the vote, visited the representative bodv
by invitation, 1 think on the next I left
the city of Washington, having, the day
;fter the vote, , visited the representative
body by invitation, I think on the next I
left the city for West Point Academy
This base falsehood was, I thought, nailed
to the counter, when first made by Mr.
Adams, by the Globe, and there il has
?'uck for years; but on the eve of the
Presidential election, and when Mr. Ad
ams might well .have Supposed me nearly
dead, and so entirely enfeebled by sickness
as to be incapable of reply, he produces it
again, with a new face upon St. Provi
dence, kind to me, has disappointed him;i
and I again declare this new-vamped state
ment that I was consulted by hi in on the
boundary of the Florida treaty before it was
made, and that I agreed to the boundary
proposed the Sabine Is positively false,
his pretended diary to the contrary not
withstanding. What honorable or just man - can repose
belief on his statements, after his receiving
from Dr. Mayo Ihe copy of a letter mark
ed "confidential," and producing and read
ing it to the House of Representatives, and
urging that I meant the reverse of its ex
press instructions, to prove me gnilty of
duplicity! This letter was to Judge Ful
ton, then acting governor of Arkansas, in
the absence of Gov. Pope. He (Adams)
saw it marked 'confidential." He also
knew that it was purloined from me by
his accomplice in this transaction, and if
an honorable man, would at ence have re
turned it to me. Instead of this he kept
it, and read it to the Representative branch
of Congress, and totally perverted its mea
ning. Was there ever such dishonorable
conduct practised by any man of the least
pretension to respectability before?, But
this is an act of perfidy on the part of one
once holding the elevated station of the
Presidency! True, he obtained it by in
trigue, bargain, and corruption; but the
distinction should haye imparted some con
sideration for the public's sense of honor,
if he himself had no sense of the kino1,
But his interest now prompts him to shield
himself from the charge of giving to Spain,
by the treaty of 1819, the greater part of
Louisiana as ceded by France to the Uni
ted States by the treaty of 1.S03, extending
o the Rio Grande Del Nortei arid He fab
ricates the positive falsehood that, before
submitting it to Onis, he consulted me,
and I agreed to the Sabine as the bounda
ry. In proof, he cites a diary prepared
by himself to suit an emergency, and pro
duces it eight years after it was called for
by the issue made by me in regard to the
fact it was referred to for, the purpose, cf
vouching. I hope he will make known to
the public what his diary says as to the
purloined letter taken from me, and hand
ed to him by Air. Mayo,' marked confi
dential." Has lie noted in his diary that
he knew this purloined . letter was stolen,
and that his reading as lawyer taught him,
that in contemplation of law, the receiver
of stolen goods, knowing them to be: sto
len, was as bad as thief, especially if he
converted them to his own use?
But the bold, daring, and unblushing
falsehood in his address, where (attending
to the congressional proceeding touching
my conduct in the Seminole campaign) he
says my acts in Florida were condemned
by the unanimous voice of both Houses. of
Congress, caps the climax. Who, alter
such a bare-faced falsehood as this, pro
nounced in the face, of the Journals of Con
gress, which show that the House of Rep
resentatives, by a large majority, on Clay
and Cobb's resolutions, exonerated me
from all censure and blame, can feel any
thing but contempt for such a reckless ca
lumniator? The man must be mad, or he
is lost lo' all sense of shame as well as
I have been interrupted at least ten times'
since I began this letter, by company, and
write with great pain, but am so anxious
to bring the address of J. Q. Adams, in
connection with the circumstances in my
recollection, to your view, that 1 could not
consult my ease, or allow care for health
to impose restraint." 1 hope you will
show him in his true colors" to the Ameri
can people. . . ,

Jl Love Chase. The Portland . Argus
gives quite an interesting account of a love
affair which happened In that city recently,
and which should be extensively circula
ted for the benefit of young marriageable
dams d who at prone to fall in love at;
first sight. It appears that a stranger, who
went to Portland on business, fell in with a
pretty, unexperienced girl, and after a Jew
interview promised her marriage", and ihe
agreed to start for Boston in the afternoon
train to have, the knot tied. . In the mean
time the mother-in-law of the cirl rot an
inkling of what was going on, and she
went to the cars to restrain her roving
daughter from throwing herself inlo the
arms of a comparative stranger.
The second Act opens at the Depot
with the train about to start. tThe mother
had entered the cars, and confronting her
daughter and her lover, by turns entreated
the one to return home with her, and up
braiding the other.for 'sJealm away "'i oi l
woman's daughter'. The daughter would
not heed her entreaties ami tears. T1t
lover was cold and imlifT rent to her
threats. She told him he was a married
man and unprincipled and bade him be
waie of retribution. To her daughter, she
pnpaled, thai hhe might return with her,
and make her home gladj which was now
desolate. The passengers feelings were
manifestly on the side of the mother- but
her appeals could not draw her daughter
out of the cars.
Meanwhile time flew, and the moment
of departure came, The molher was slill
beseeching the daughter pouting the
lover frowning when dame fortufl for
once helped the matron, and disappointed
the maid. The, conductor inquired if the
girl had a ticket? She had not and, as
the rule requires passengers to be so provi
dedj she was advised to slep to the office
and obtain one, ..She stepped but and the
scene became now quite exciting, some qf
the passengers happened to be very much
in the way of the lover, and he could not
get out so easily.
Finding the egess through tlie door
strangely prevented, he rushed to the win
dow, and with a $3 bill between his fin
gers, endeavored to convey it to her." She
was evidently leaving home, in this man's
company, without money. But he could
not reach her. A tall Hack lfiv'er,. laying
his thumb by the side ol his nose, and twir
ling his fingers, politely informed him ;that
"he couldn't como it." Here was a silua
ation! The girl without, with no mearw to
purchase her ticketfthe fellow within un
able lo get out and every body laughing
at liim. . t .. , .
It is an old proverb, "time and tide.wait
for no nian" neither does the mail train
nor for woman either. At this moment
the starling time arrived, bell tolled,r the
engineer let . on tho steam the fireman
griunned the spectators laughed and off
went the train, with the itinerant, but with
out his victim. Then it was that the force
of the girl's love broke forth. When she
" .t- : ' . , .
saw me gap every moment widening oe
twecn them, she could endure the thought
no longer but set off" with frantic speed in
full ehase after the cars! Some shouted,
some opened wide their eyes, some unfeel
ingly cried "put on more steam,' my dear,'
a lew pitied the poor girl.' She soon found
that her speed; even when impejled by
love, was not t qua! to .the triail train!
She returned dejected, and in tears; to re
peat ihe tho't of ih'e old poet, "the cojirs
of true love never did run smooth.'

(ljMt. Samuel Robinson, well known
as the veteran mail driver between Boston
and Portsmouth, says the Newburyport
Herald, for nearly thirty years, was killed
at Portsmouth on Monday, about noon. He
had recently purchased a young high spirit
ed horse, with which he was riding in a
chaise? when the horse became unmanagea
ble, and after running some distance dashed
the chaise against a post, throwing out Mr.
Robinson and wounding him so that he
died in about two hours.
Paying for it. Two verdicts were
rendered yesterday, in the District Court,
against the County, lor damages done to
property by mobs. One of the verdicts
was for damages by the mob iri Kensin-
ton, in Maj' last", and the other for injuries
done by the mob in the lower part of ifie
city in August, 1842. They amount to
only about six .hundred dollars but when
it is remembered 1 hat there are rlai'rnj
imounting to , hundreds of thousands of
dollars, yet to he settled, it will be seen

pretty deep pecuniary interest in suppress
