Extract from an advertisement of Mr.
"lie deems it unnecessary for him to
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 ihe small force required to
work it, are sufficient to recommend it;
saying nothing of its superior power and

A T a meeting of the Roanoke" Union
Society of the Methodist Episcopal
Church, held at Whitaker's Chapel on
the first Thursday of March last, it was
Resolced, That a Convention of Dele
gates should meet at Bradford's Meeting-house
in Halifax county, on the se
cond Monday in September nest, for
the purpose of electing two or more re
presentatives to attend a General Con
vention to be held in Baltimore in No
vember next. This is to give notice
that the said Convention expects and in
tends to meet on said day, and on Sat
urday and Sunday previous, there will
be public preaching, &c. at said meeting
house. Let those who are friendly to a
Representative Church Government
think on those things, and throw in their
mite to bring about siich a state of
things in our Church before it be too
late; when the spirit of Popery may get
such hold on our Clergy, that it will' be
hard to remove.

I am 4f the npiniorHnat Dempscv Webb,
Sen. ol this rounty, is knowing to the'
theft committed, for many reasons I
add, that several of the most dis
tinguished Senators expressed a
concurrence in the objections urn--ed,
and declared to me that they
were prepared to sustain them in
the event of any member of the
Senate desiring further investiga
tion. Respectfully yours, &c.
Mr. PresidentAs I cannot,
consistenly with a sense of duty,
give a silent vote on the present
occasion, I must ask the indul
gence of the Senate for a few mo
ments, while I shall attempt, in a
plain, frctnk and brief manner, to
give them the reasons why I am
unwilling to advise and consent
to this appointment.
I am duly impressed with the
momentous duty we are about to
perforin, and the importance of
the crisis, connected with the
deep responsibility which attaches
to each and every member; and
hence my .solicitude to arrive at
truth by the best reflections which
I have been capable of bestowing
on the subject.
To guide and direct us on this,
as well as every other occasion, it
may be well first, to look to the
commission under which, and
from which we derive all our
powers, to wit: the Constitution of
the United fctatos, which we have
' oi ice Lever and its concomitants are
equal if not superior to any, even to the
i "Wedge, if properly applied. From the
J high and freouent encomiums which
have been past on the invention, the
Subscriber is induced to offer it to the
public as something worthy of their no
Cash, Macon, Corn, Herrings, Flour,

Wake count?, Aug. 27, 1S27.
To Messrs. Lawrence & Lemay:
Gentlemen The incorrect im
pression attempted to be made on
the public mind in relation to the
proceedings of the Senate of the
United States, on the nomination
of the Honorable Henry Clay, as
Secretary of State, in March, 1 825,
has placed me in the unpleasant
dilemma of acquiescing in what
every Senator present must know
to be wrong, or submitting to a
candid world the remarks, and the
only remarks that were made on
that occasion. I have, therefore,
determined to furnish them forth
with for publication. I will only
reject the distinguished individu
al, whose nomination we are now
. i about to act upon. The clause is
No Senator or Representative shall,
during the time for which he was elect
ed, bc appointed to any civil office un
der the authority of the United States
which shall have been created, or the
emoluments whereof shall have been
increased during such time; and no per
so holding-any office under the United
States, shall be a member of either house?
during his continuance in office."
I would ask, why and wherefore
is it that no member of either
House is permitted to hold an of
fice which he has assisted to cre
ate, or the emoluments of which
have been increased by his vote
Because, sir, it was wisely fore
seen that he might be influenced
to vote for the one or the other
from mercenary motives. What
is the present case? Henry Clay,
a member of the House of Repre
sentatives, has made, or, if you
please, has mainly contributed to
make John Q,. Adams President
of those United States, and thiy
President, thus made in opposition
to the known will and wishes of
