Mr I) was sustained, and Mr Polk was defeated. A biography of .Mr Polk wis published in Tennes see, and at iho South, in which ho was lauded as a free trade man. When that biography reached these regions, a new edilion was isued, and all about free trade was left out. So Dr Duncan, of Ohio, anatomi zed a coon, and insisted that in it ho found anion" other V.

This edition, thu- amen ded, was conveyed back to Washington, ami hem shown 10 the Dr. he s.niply said it was a mistake of the printer! And this is the mode 111 which Mr Polk is to be commended' 111 different places, on different grounds ! .Mr Jarnagm gava a ludicrous account of the argu ments by which .Mr Polk was endeavored to be ad vanced.

Mr Jarnagm then adverted In the Texas question and declared emphatically that Tennessee had too much virtue, 100 much political integrity, too much intelligence, to go for Polk and Texas ; and inasmuch as lie had Ix-cn represented since he had been in this Stateas hiving virtually given up Tennessee on the question of Texas, ho hern declared his untotiblin conviction that Tenne'sco would give to Clay nnd I'rtlinghiivscu, a vole as great if not greater than that given for Mr Jones -and lint exceede I -1000 Whto majority.

Every where tho Whigs are flocking lo iho standard of Clay, Ficlinghuysnn and thu Country. Gatherings aro now witnussi: oveiy day, such as only look place on gre occasions in 1840. The least notice is suf ficient (o bring out tho indomitable Wlti by thousands. In New York, especially, the Tiro burns nrigliily. I ivo or six nieeliiios have lately been held in different parts of tho Slate, in numbers varying from live to fifteen thousand. In Michii!.in, a meetiii" of 15,000 met at Detroit not long ago. In Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, Geor gia, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Massa chusetts, thu people havo been gathurin to hear thu words of noble and truo cliampi ons of tho great cause. Every wbero the most unyielding confidence, hacked, howuv or, by a determination to leavo no effort un tried to ensuro success, characterizes the Whigs. They know and feel lhat their cause and their candidates are safe before tho people, especially when opposed by an ocxaiion, free trade, radicalism find disunion led on by so puny a whipster usJamcs K I'olk. In our own Siato the Whigs aro " mar. shading to arms" with on alacrity that sets doubt ut defiance. County Conventions now call out as many people as somo States could muster in 1840, on Stale occasions. All going right, and Vermont should bo as she is, looked to wilh a confidence and hopo proportionate to her unsullied Whig reputa tion in by-gono days. theTand distribution. We apprehend that sufficient importance is not attached, lo this question as connected with thu stability of protection. Thu chief reason why tho Whig party in sist upon this measure, nsido from tho un questionable juslico of giving to thu Stales tlieir own properly, is this, that it is insep rahlo from tho safely and permanency of the Tariff. No certainly can exist as to what revenue may bo needed from duties on ini porU, so long as it is left dependant on what may bo required ufter applying thu land rev eniie. And this very fact alone will coutri buto to causo tho fluctuation so destructive to the interests which lean upon protection. When tho Tariff is high enough lo piolecl domestic industry, thu country prospers, and men earn money lo buy public lands with, and 1 1 icy yo and lake them up ; then the hind revenue swells to a largo sunt, llm rovenuo Increases perhaps beyond tho wnnts of tlio Government, unci then tho unti-turifl' men exclaim in great dudgeon, " hero you aro, in order to obtain your protection, actually ex ceeding tho required revenue." Tho tariff must como down, all thu branches depen dent on it aro prostrated, nnd forthwith I ho sales of llio public lands dwindle down lo nothing, leaving tho Government without cither duties or land revenue to pay its debts. Then perhaps under the pressure of want an incrcaso of iho TnrifTis effected, only to ex- cito nnow the hopes, which aro doomed to ho tigatn changed to disappointment. This is tho effect wo claim for the conlin- inco of tho present pernicious system Inch does a great injury to tho industry of the country, by perpetrating un infamous wrong upon tho States. Wo want this land rovonun put where it belongs, in (ho hands of its owners, that it may no more infest the public Treasury with ils incvilahlo injury to tho protective policy Locofocoism demands a Tariff laid with cferenco lo raising tho most revenue out of every article taxed, and ihcn wnnts this re duced to iho lowest point admitted by the wants of government after applying the land revenue. Tho Whigs on iho contrary want a tariff liko tlio ono of 1842, which shall afford as high protection as possible lo those branches of industry which need protection, compati ble wilh the principle of not exceeding the wants of the government, without tint pro ceeds of tho lands. And ihev want a pro tective duly on those articles which compete with our manufactures, and the balance rais ed by a rovenuo duty on articles not raised or manufactured here. This is what the Whigs want. This is what wo have, and what wo want to preserve from tho Vandal hands of Locofocoism, which every where Uneaten ils destruction. Wo repeat, the land rovenuo is a nuisance in tho public Treasury and the question of its distribution to tho Slates to whom it be longs, is a vitally important one. Aside from ils connection wilh protcclion, its importance to tho States cannot bo over rated. Many ol tlie states are invoivcu. Hero Uncle Sam owes ihcm money, and will not pay it to them that they may pay their debts. They own it, nnd on ever pi in ciple, ought to havo it. Then there nre States lucky enough to be out of debt, liko our own. They want their funds lo inves in education, internal improvements and ull the various beneficial uses which enlightened policy will suggest. They have a right lo claim it, for it is theirs, and il is a wrong lo withhold it. fX1" Thu True Democrat of last week makes a grant flourish of trumpets witli ref erence to the attributed opposition of his foundling candidate In a Tariff, and defi us to meet him n rnrm. r-:... icfVr euro to tlio matter.

Ils repeal wan pronounced lo ho a favorite object of our opponents. 'Ihev havo a majority of some fifty or sixty in Iho Home.

This decision was an involuntary confes sion of our political opponenls to the ici'dom nnd be neficence of ITifs policy, produced by iho returning prosperity of the cuuutiy, and the enlightened opinion of the people." Thuro it is. Mull may arguo and theo rize and talk humbug till they aro lired, with out settling any thing, but when two men aro proposed on account of favoring or op posing a given theory, wo want them to tell us openly, not what doctrine in general they believe in, but what ACTS lliey intend to do in carrying out practically tlieir views. Mr. Clay says ho thinks thn present tariff " in tho main wist: and pRoren." Mr. I'olk says he is in favor of itr.i'r.Ai.iNi; it and "RESTORING THE COMPROMISE TARIFF OF MARCH 2, 1833!" Although Mr. Clay admits that thoroniny ho some defects in tho present tariff, ho is well known to bo opposed to repealing il, bul in favor of remedying such defects by " supplemental legislation." Not so Mr. Polk. IIo " views ils provisions with AB HORRENCE I" and is in favor of repeal ing it at once, and throwing every thing into tho wind again, wilh a Texas majority lo re-adjust ils details. Wu presume the Dem ocrat would consider tho matter very safe in such hands. Tho present Tariff is doing wonders of good every whore. Under it the country is recovering from iho debilitating effects of tho quackery of Jacksonism and Van Burenism, and thu people want to sec it placed in other hands than thoso of thu gentry who havo piisillanimoiisly dropped on their marrow bones at the beck ofa knot of open and avowed free traders. They prefer also to judge of tho Tariff principles of this latest found great man, from his ex pressions and avowals while struggling for llie Governor's chair of a Southern Stale, rather than from tho deliberate falsehood which ho has just given birth to, in order to make Northern capital, now that he finds himself, to tho unfeigned astonishment of all mankind, seriously talked of for Presidont United Stales. Wo over that tho stuff in Polk's lato letter about his being in favor of protection, &c, is proved lo be to tally false by tho extract above quoted. Per haps, however, Iho T rue Democrat will con tend that a horizontal duly of 20 per cent., wilh ii little "discrimination" btlow lhat poml, i piulettion enough. If so, let II go to the people of Vermont honestly, and make the avowal. Wo aro for a eontimianco of tho Tariff of 1842. So is Mr. Clay. This is thu Whig ground. Hero wo stand, and wu tisk the True Democrat if it can say ns much. Toe tho mark, gentlemen. Do you advocate a continuance or a repeal of tho present Tar iff! And what do you prelcnd Mr. Polk's views rioio to Lo on that question 1 Let us havo no dodging, no gammon about " inci dental protection," " revenue Tariff," and such stuff, but give us your views on the present slato of things, and those of your leader. If our memory serves us right, your party, almost in a body, went for repealing tho present Tariff last winter, but wo sup pose you claim to bo released from the re sponsibility of what you did then, because yon have been forced to right about faco by your Southern masters since then. What wo want is the present standing of the Tariff of 1842 in your political thermometer. KENDALL THE LIAR. It is the fate wo believe, of ull parlies to bo occasionally infested by a class of men to whom tho decencies of lifo present no bar riers in tho prosecution of partizan warfare but who seek to redeem in tho eyes of their fellow partisans, the otherwise unmitigated baseness of their characteis, by an ostenta tious show of zeal for thu attainment of the common end. Among iho butler portion of thu pai ties thus afflicted among those who ought to set tho example of scouting such wretches fiom their fellowship and commu nion, these poisons are too often tolerated for fear of their malice, or winked at for tho hope of political gain. And thus while they pursue a course which should subject them to tho cat-o'nino tails or the penitentiary, they are often able to gtory with impunity in the cuunlenanco and confidence of their par- And it is only when a party has so de meaned itself as, for the hopo of capital, to recognize and endorse its basest wretches in tlieir violations of thu laws of honorable op position, that it can be justly held responsible for tlieir villainy. i The course of that unprincipled scoundrel who, having in early lifo shared the friend ship and generosity of tho noble and high hearted Clay, has now crawled to a position of safety, whonco ho spits his malignant ve nom at his former benefactor, is a fit theme for him who in arming himself for tho stern conflict of tho world, feels ihe necessity of tracing to its " lowest deep " the fiendish malice and damning ingratitude of which ex perience tells him the human soul is capahl It should bo selected bv him who would see lofty honor, unsullied purity and heaven-in spired gratitude, brought into the most bril liant lioht which contrast can alford. The shameless, persevering and diabolical turpi tudo of this villian has proved so revolting, that even a violent Loco paper in Virgin!; uses this language conccrnum two of hi fit my puuncaiions : It i ueles3 lo n-h us to publish Kendall's tracts 'Clay's diiellina." and "Providential disnensa. on ' lions ' llie ono is exaEsTLEMANLY, the other is BLASPHEMOUS 1" But alas! for the frailty of humanity, lo cofocoism generally endorses the libeller, and some of ils presses evince a disposition lo outdo him in falsehood and calumny, if such an exploit were possible. His vile slanders aro repeated and enlarged upon, and be himself, festering with the accumu lated baseness ofa lifu of infamy, is held up as a model for democratic spiouls to copy. Missives from his quiver are the favorite arms of tho polkats, and shafts are levelled at the fair fame of Henry Clay, which weru fur nished to the assailants, by tho miscreant who in his day of poverty and want once enjoyed indisputable proofs of the noble generosity of that great man s heart. Such is llie reptile whose falsehoods are relied on to defeat tho election of tho orator, iho statesman and tho man, to whom the ad miring eyes not of his native land alone, bul of whole continents, 30a, of die world have for thirty years been turned !

THE GAME OF BRAG. Locofocoism at ils harmonious pow-wow in Baltimore, undoubtedly agreed that in tho hopeless state of tho parly, the only way of making capital was to brag loud unA assert fiercely the certainty of the election of the " jewel ofa man" just then exhumed to the public gazo. Such is iheir lino of tactics, and you Inay hear them any fine day pro tending with windy pertinacity lhat they consider it no job ut all to elect the mighty and puissant Polk, over so small a man as Henry Clay. Wu heard a loco tho other day, declaro with pretended seriousness, that ho believed Cl.iy eoitW ;io get more than TWO STATES ! Vermont and Rhodu Island, and tlijtoftheso Vermont was very doubtjul. Now, such stupid, asinine bragging as this, is tho best eviduncc, at o'neo of the precon certed game adopted, and of tho real despair of locofocoism. No man ever madu so bold a boast ns that without doing it us tho boy who whistled, going through a church-yard, to keep his courago up. But since estimates are so one sided with our terrified democracy, let tho lion turn sculptor for a moment. We tell thu polkat cry they will probably carry Maine, Nuw Hampshire, South Carolina, Alabama, Mis sissippi, Missouri, Arkansas and Illinois. By possibility they may carry Virginnia having an till scventy-fivu electoral votes. And there their list ends. Not nn inch out of it, can thu most tremendous and spas modic struggles carry them. All tho lest are going past all redemption for "Old Ken tuck and tho Jersey blue." Why, only lliink of it Messieurs Polkats : who have you got lo whip Mr. Clay with 1 A Ittllo mousing youngster, a fifth rate man, who was all of twelve years old when this same Henry Clay was elected to tho Senate of tho United Slates ; and ull of nineteen, when he went to Ghent to conclude a treaty wilh thu plenipo tentiaries of England.

The people havo spoken fur tho first lime since tho Baltimo- rean farcu of the 27th of May, and wu pie- sumc our polkat neighbors will comprehend the significance of their language. For ourselves, although we gave place to a promise fio.n a Whig paper in New Or leans, thai the Statu wuuld go Whig at this election, yet our settled opinion has been that the Texas fever, backed by the Texas scrip, would sweep it like wild-fire. Wo looked only to certain defeat in a Slate which from its position must certainly feel deeply interested in the success of any can didate who would promise tho annexation of Tenia, vvlili whom she was on terms of tho most intimate intercourse. How much wo undeiraled the sterling Whig firmness of Louisiana, and ovcrmted tho vitality of tho strange ticket resorted to at Baltimore as ihe last resort of despairing Locofocoism, the icsult shows clearly. Last year the city of Nuw Oileans went against us, and the Locos elected all four of the members of Congress. Now, in spito of Texas, Polk &. Co., we have earned the city, elected two out of the four members of Congress, carried belli branches of the Leg islature, and a majority of the Constitutional Convention. This opens tho campaign with glory enough, and wo only ask a continuance of such demonsirations, to ensure a complete triumph to our glorious cause. DODGING. Impudence, especially fiom a Loco Foco editor, sometimes readies a point which ab solutely verges on tho sublime. Tho Truo Democrat says the Free Press itVirv not meet ils stupid falsehood that Polk is as much Tarill' as Clay, and ibis because no reply appeared in this paper, which went to press Thursday afternoon, lo a challenge in thu T. D. published Wednesday morning. If the sapient factotum of the " Democracy " will scan our paper carefully, ho may find evidence that his challenges are not very ter rible things to Whigs. His gammon about Polk's tariff orthodoxy is absolutely no go, let thorn swagger never so fiercely, IIo must bo excessively verdant to imag ine that wo would lake tho electioneering twattlo of bis insignificant candidal, as evi dence in deciding on his opinions. No sir, wo look somewhere else, and decide on his tariff principles by what he said when ho was trying to make headway among a peoplo whom ho falsely supposed were free traders. And with what grace does the assertion come from tho enlightened child of democra cy and learning, that the Whigs are a raco of" parly ridden, humbugged partisans." hat a pity that they wont go for instruc tion to the stripling who honestly goes about to prove that Polk, the candidate of iiii fers, is a friend of protection ! Tho latest form which the expiring agonies of iho Polkats in this Slato has assumed is tho attempt to make out thai Polk, a real d is siple of Calhoun, McDuffie & Co. and who was used by them successfully to beat out Matty's brains, is as much a Tariff man as Henry Clay. This is highly probable, front tho notorious fact lhat the free trade gentry, ono and all, aro extremely "hearty" in this Mr. Polk, and aro fighting with might and main to elect him, although they openly de claro tho question of protection to bo a vital one to ihom. Docs it look very likoly that Mr. McDuffio and the breed of politicians who back him up, would go for a man whom they suspected of the protection taint! And how docs this circumstance interpret any stuff which Polk puis forlh to help himself, in tho agonies of inevitable defeat! We say to tho friends of protection, juitgo of Polk as he tells you to, by his acts, speeches and voles, nut by the avowals of his "lu,i Cdrd."
