In these dnngcrous and diffi cult times every office should be occupied by a man of ability, wisdom ond integrity. Quacki nnd Tinkers have cursed our coun try long enough. They have, nf'ur n seven yenrs war upon our currency, nt length t'ticci'cdori in reducing our circulating me dium from a Found mid healthy state, to the tiiott miserable shin-plaitcr system. This Rtate of things has been brought about by the nbntniuablo corrupt and wily specula tions eC our Nat iniiul Administration; who now haw; the boldue-s and effrontery to charge it nil to their opponents, it be comes yotiMlu'y. (oHow citizens, to correct those evils, while you may. There utc but two candidate? for I lie ollice in question. The Whirs, have recommended lo you the Hun. Joel Allen, as a man eminently qunli Pied for that station. On the other hand Dr Uartics through the agency of the Cus tom House department has again procured his own tinmiimiinii to the ofllcc, the duties of which, he m clumsily and ignornntly at tempted to perform last year, to the great mortification and chagrin of his constitu ents, lie style himself the "Van Burin cadidaie." I need not inform you that Judge illou is allowed to be Dr. Humes' Eiipeilur in every necessary qualification for n Legislator. Indeed Dr. Iiarnes cannot .... 1 III iltiy JJillllUMlill ruvius; uinu uuu ijuttiiiQiy nnd you have had enough of them, being no necessary qualifications, for such n bta tinn. But let us try Dr Barnes by his offi cial nets while a Srmilor liiat year. The fiM we learn of him. nfler he left us, is from the Journal of thu Senate (-co page 1st.) we find him seeking a seat in the Sen. nte by the aid of Ex-Guv. Pulmor fa man whom Dr. Barnes formerly scorned and ridiculed for his antimasGiiry) without pro ducing Ins credentials O ! a wise Sen. ntor without any cridentials ! How every freemen in I he cminiy blushed and hung Ins head when ho road the mortifying fact, in the Journals of the day, that their Senator had forgotten Ins credentials. The only dunce in Hint Iluuor.iblu body. On page 0 1 It of the Senates Journal you will find the Doctor hanging himself lor forgetting hi- credentials, by voting lo have the State fiirni-h him two daily and three weekly news-papors during tho Sesrions of the Legislature. But let us see how tho Doe tor dorlcred our interests afier bo obtained so honorably a seat in that Honorable body. On page 50 of tin: ?amo Journal you will find Hut Dr. Barnes voted to repeal the law which made it penal for a man to lake unlawful Interest. The Doctor from his voiith up has been a grrai jf.?urerind many a poor fellow has been skinned by his quackery and illegal Interest. As tho law fiiimcrly Flood the D 'dor dare not directly take illegal interest ; but ho would the borrower n sliaviueil Horse, a IniiO Cow, n broken Waggon, a Fiek Hog, some tenb by Sheep, or a I5rn-s Watch for ten or fif teen timet- I ho va'un i hereof, and thereby indirntly take illegal l"'trc.l by way of the old t-trnlngeui f whipping the Devil around the stump. But this way ol evading I ho law becamo rather irksnmo and hazzardoiiF, fo thu Doctor doctoral tiio law. You see fellow citizens tho Doctor is faithful to his own Interests. Thu Doctor has also a pe culiar laculty of obtaining votes. He is (as most of you know) the Surgeon of our Regiment of Militia; and thu Uegimptit under bis kind attention are all becoming Invalids; but Mill t hey nro apt voters, Should thu Doctor bo a candidate two years longer, tho whole Regiment of Militia will bo disbanded, and ynu will hove lo depend entirely upon Invalids to protect your wo. men nnd children from the invasions of o ruthless savago or a foreign loo. They will all linvo certificates from your kind iiirgeon. You would bo ii6tonis!ied to Icain all (he causes of exception from mili lory duly, assigned by your Surgeon.--Sotno are pick, eomo expect to be sick, some hftve limp fingers, snmo linvo short fingers, ftotno have crooked fingors, some have three toes, eomo six toes, mine have no toes, nnd oven some linvo long whiskers. Tho Doc tor's motto in politics is "Van Duron right or wrong," he believes it is wrong to op pose bis administration, or any of bis mcas uros; the Doctor in fact bcllves in the don trine of nnn-renistanc c, ho even declared as much in his dinner sperch on the 4ili of July last. Ilo praised the "Experiment" and the "Humbug," and I understand ho is now in favor of Mr. Van Huron's Treasury Bank. Dr. Barnes nnd bis partizans nrn now busily engaged electioneering through the County and claiming his re election be. cause of his great services to the county Inst year; audio carry the joke still fur ther the Doctor has ordered the long caned Editor of the Sentinel to tell yon what public opinion is here respecting tho prob ability of his re election; and n evidence thereof, the sapient Kdimr tells you bo has received half a hundred new subscribers to I he Scnlinel within the last two weeks. Poor man ! deluded with a falso hope of gain! Tho Doctor has probably ordered the fifty new papers for bis pnrtizans lo distribute among the electors of the county for the shallow purpose of inducing them to vote for him: how many gulls bo will catch by the low stratagem remains to be seen ; but alas ! a killing frost on the 5th of Sep tember next may blast the Editor'si hope, bani-di his fifty men subscribers and leave the Doctor sad'y in the minority. Take David Crockett's motto of "Go ahead ;" fellow citizens, elect Judge Allen and the county will be Fafe. You can do it nnd I think you will do it. Buckingham. Grand Lie County. August 11137. Jackson has ical'y rendered his country a service when he len-t intended it. His recent incendiary Letters to B'air were evidently written to keep Van Buren "up to tho rack, fodder or no fodder." But they were charged wMi gall against our commercial and monetary iuterCfts. No class of citizens and especially that class which embraces so large a portion of the wealth, intelligence, enterprise and pa triotism of tho Country like to be told even by Gen. Jackson, that they have done all in their power to "disgrace and ruin" that country, and that ihey "deserve tin favor j mm the Government." Thousands of the best and most efficient supporters of tho Administration, when this wanton at tack appeared in its official organ, til once and forever abandoned the party. Indued so elrnngly is the popular indignation ex. .,.! ,l.t .,,il,r il.r, Allmnv Arrrnj .ir New York times has dared lo publish those Letters. Dj'TIio truly great and patriotic Wash ington, when he retired from tho Presi dency, wrote a Fahewell Annnnss, and from ihat time forward studiously avoided interfering with ihc politics and the gov ernment. Gen. Jackson, in mockery of Washington, nlso fjnvo us a "Fuicwcll Address" But Washington retired to honor and dignify the walks of private life Jack-on. forgetting his "Farewell" has relumed lo Ihc arena of politics, and is slandering and abusing the belter portion of our citizens, for the purpose of promo. nog too political schemes nt Ijenton, Kendall, Bi.aiu, and bis oilier profligate followers. THE ELECTIONS. THE SPEAKER. We believe the Wcfet has saved the country. The return? exceed tho inos-l sanguine expectations: the evidences of public opinion arc too loud and exprcFsivc to mistaken by U e ndmiiibiratinn, and if the President is determined to stand u against the people, and withhold Ihat im mediate relief which it is in his power to grant, laud woe it is lo tho country thai he has thu power, tho storm iniint over whelm him.

From nil that wo can collect, wo ehanld not bo much surprised nt the choice of n Whig Speaker.

Van Huron ia getting bis collars ready, and intends lo whip tve. ry man ol It is own party ituo a caucus, and then put tho screws upon them for Spenkcr. Tho elections at tho West will keep many of bis men out of that Caucus. His true friends do not wish him to have the Speaker. Tho elcclion of Polk would finish him before the session is half through as he loaves Tennossen with written in structions from Jackson an to his Commit tees and his course in the chair.

If ibis paper is trcrelly npprovod by Mr. Van Buren, it mist be from the conviction that it will relievo him from a portion of the tyranny of the Globe. The Next Conoiie-s.

Fellow Citizksi You have nil lu ting Hum heard tell of my return lo my nn'ive land, after an abseeuco now of over two years this gra5s, ami how nigh I came resting my bones nlong with Ihe "Two Polhes" on tin bench, anil nil mainly owtn lo n notion that Captain Jumper took that ho was more kuowiii than other folks about his latitude nud longitude nnd souudius, and lo wind up all, was willing, right or wrong, "lo take the reFponsibilily. " Well, the long nud short of ihe inaltcr Is, the "Two Pollies" weni nliori, nnd there she lies now, right off and on the liou-'o I am now in, and as I am in pretty good keep, in here, I iiH-nn to slick by nnd wait for I be high tides of September next, nnd tee if there is nny hopes of getting this vessel off. I don't mean to quit so long ns two hltcks of umber of this vessel hangs to, gel her. 1 know fIio is worth tavio, and if we can't save all wo can save part, just eiiuiY lo preserve the model, for there aiu'i sicb another craft afloat or on shore in all tin' created airth. In tho nairal course of things, I suppose that seeing il is now more than two years since I wrote my last letter from Franco to my old friend Dr. D'.vight, that 1 nnglit lo tell where I have been, nud what 1 have been about ; but this would be a long story too long to be rood fur nothing, nnd I have no tune lo finish it if I once begun it I'll leave Ihat till i el through more tin porlant mailers. I did not intend writ i nu ll ny thing till l!ie "Two Pollies'1 was oft and pnft; hfl nl ngaio ; but seeing that all the great folks are at work writing piivato letters for publication, I thought it was high tune to begin, and m doing to, as the Globe say- of uiv old friend the Gineral's letter, "dash il off in Hit) broad bold hand of the venerable chief without ihe slight est care of punctuating or correct ing. &o." When 1 left home the lift lime on inv way lo France, to nul in keeping things right there, 1 nt tlown at ihe stnrn ol the Two Pollies, nml kepi my eye on my native hills till Ihe top nt ihe highe.-t one wa ist in the log cloud that hung over it.

And jest so it wns this tune; there was my ninve hills, all flunking in the distance, je.-t like a row ol hot dump lins. anil 1 going oil to Keep r.n eve oi them Frenchmen ; what changes, iliiuk I. will take place among ihein lulls alure 1 gil back lo I hem !
