The buck of Aahland'a apell ia gone, Like the laat atar that beam* at dawn, He tremblea in hia palace, For lo! the people have awoke, And cry aloud, nurrah lor Polk, And Pennaylvanla'a Dallaa ! And in our union, they behold Their aky grow dim, their hopea grow cold, And cloud* en their horizon, Which threaten, aa they gather blaok, To awrep from oft the open track, Both Clay and Krelinghuyten. So rouee youraelvea, ye Democrat* ! And with up-lifted heart* and hats, Riae up in Freedom's ray, And like the thunder storm that rolla, Drive hack to their oblivious holes, The fatellites of Clay. Let all assembled here weaee, Give three cheers lor Democracy! Despite of all federal malice, And teach our fctea in next November, A lesson tliev will long remember? Hurrah ! for Polk and Dallaa !

I Xllt SAME OLD COON. a ntr Mtvinrvi. iuar. Dedicated to the Melancholy Whig?. Turns?"OM Orimt$." The coon ia lead?that aarae old coon, We ne'e. shall aee him more; A long far coat ol mottled grey, Upon hu back he wore. He used to roam about the Statea, To barbecues and shows; He had two eara upon hia head, Aud smellers on hia note. At routa and meetings, day and night, Hia aid waa e'er in atore; He sat sometimes upon a tree, Sometimes beside the door. But death, which ooraes to all, at last Came to this same old coon: Among Jersey blues he caught a cold, And fell down in a swoon J?, A gentle breeze from Maryland's shore, Revived his hopes awhile, And they who watohed him, say that o'er His face there passed a smile. The list that e'er lit up his eye? For from the Keyston, then ATwarntng voice broke on his ear, And he smiled not again. ^ But raising up his long thin face, He whispered faint and low, "Oh, bear me to my native land, My native O hi o." He spoke no more, but straightway fell Into another swoon; 80 fearful were the boding thoughts, That camo to this old coon. At length the broad Ohio passed, 'Neath an "October sky ," Under a spreading buck eye tree They laid him down to die. They conveyed him to the Empire State, And round him railed their host, Bat tound that here we'd seeled his late; He then "gave up the ghoet." Sadly around him closed hia friends, Not gold nor art might save? And he who wes so mighty once, Now fills a raccoon's grave! Mourn for tho coon?the aame old coon ! Hia triumphs all are o'er? Mourn for the coon?"that seme old coon." We ne'er shall see him more ! THE NEW JERSEY STAR.

Good bye Harry, go home Harry, Your cornfield at Ashland is waiting tor you. Your bargain,with Adams we'se not forgot, And all your bold cheering will now go to pot, Dictator you was of the famed extra session, But of the White House you will ne'er get possession. Good bye Harry, go home Harry, Your slaves at the farm are waiting for you. Your triplo-faced knavery, all should detest. Your speeches for North, and for South, and for West, So driven In practice, and principles too, That an honest mouth they never could pass through, Good bye Harry, go home Harry, A throe headed President never would do. A bank is your ho'iby, a bank you shall have, A bank of good earth when you oome to your grave, But never a bank of fifty millions power, To grind off the nose from the face of the poor. Good bye Harry, card playing Harry, At Ashland there's sackcloth and ashes for yon. Then democrats rouse, to the polls all repair, We'll vote Polk and Dallas, our courage to ohi . A beak of good clay is right good to make bricks, Bui of Clay's monster bank, we'll beware of the trick*. Good bye Harry, your tricks all r ' Republican honors now bid you adieu. LAST LOCOFOCO. Yew?"

On the 37th Jay of April, 1S40,Rhoda Davidson name to reaide in my family, and remained with ua until the latter part of April, I&41 She appeared amiable and oblig eg and waa faithiul in her work for aeveral months. She ?oon began to make some statements to my wile about her love affairs, in connection with a Mr. Ellis On this subject her mind waa at time* a good deal excited, which excitement increased from month to month. 1 waa al ways kind to my domestics and con versed familiarly with them; she occasionally spoke to me on the subject, and particularly at one time asked my opinion whether it was right for a professor of religion to marry a non-prole sor. But most ot her love affairs were told to ate by my wife. I have heard her speak of quoting scripture to Mr Ellis and his quoting scripture to her. I always treated her kindly, and never ottered her any abuse. During the latter part ol the winter, when she appeared to lost all hope of obtaining Mr. Ellis, she was more excited, be came Iretful and passionate, and sometimes impudent, neglected her work, and acted so strangely that we were several times on the point of dismissing her But know ing the cause of this alteration in her conduct, we pitied her, hoped she would soon get over Iter disappointment, and do as well as she did the first six months. At any rate we concluded to get along with her as well as we could, till Mrs Kdirchild went her journey to visit her friends in Philadelphia and elsewhere. Whatever waa wrong in herconductwe attributed to her disappointment. We did not think her vicioui, or given to bad practices. We gave her every Thursday afternoon and evening to go where (he pleased. She u.uully went into the city to viait, aa ahe a aid, her cousins, those cousins we knew not. She generally returned in the evening, accompanied, a* ?he aaid by some man. I recollect on one occasion that ?ha did not return till midnight. We have heard her say that her aiater, (Mrs Eaaty) was an unprincipled woman, and aa much an infidel aa anything We have heard her ?ay, too, that Mr. Hoyt waa an unprincipled man. and that her sister Mary wsa quite intimate in the family ? We know nothing of these persons except what Rhode told us. On one occasion, aa my wife iuformeil me at the time, a young man waited on her home in the evening who professed to be a phrenologist. She said he had been walking with her on the old bridge and examining her head, and told her that she had the organ of amativeness developed more plainly than any female head he had ever examined. In the latter part ol April, 1841, she left us for the purpose ol learning a trade.? But ahe did not succeed. The reason is unknown to me I have the impression, however, that it was on aocount of her inability to pay for her board. Mrs. Faircluld went heisjourney early in May, and was absent ten or twelve weeks. During her absence 1 broke up housekeeping, though I studied and lodged at home. Soon after Mrs F went her journey, Kboda came to my house and requested permission to stay a day or two to make or alter a dress To this 1 objected on account of the inconvenience, as I was then boarding at one ol my neighbors. But pitying her poverty, aud as Eliza Towne was then at my house, I told her she might stay till Eliza Towne went away. She stayed a few days. Bome weeks after this I met her in Washington street. She said she was going to my house in search of a pair of shoes which she nad either lost or left there. I told her that the door was locked ; but if sbe would wait til) I returned from the post-office, she could go homo with me end look lor her shoes. She went into one of the stores, and on my return 1 called for her. and ?he went bome with me She told me she was then living or going to live with a family in Jamaica Plains. She ex pressed a wish to live with us again, and observed that no family seamed so much like home to her as mine. 1 told her that we oould not receive her back, unless she would do differently from what she did a few months belore she left ifs She said that when sbe lived with us ?he was very nervous, owing to her disappointment, and that she hardly knaw what she did, but tliut she bad now over it, and would do as well as ever. I told her that on condition she would do as well as she did the first six or eight months she lived with us, she might return it Mrs. F. was willing. She promised that the would When my wife returned from her journey 1 told her what Rhoda had said aud promised. She waa perfectly willing to take her back on that condition. In a short time 1 called at the house where Rhoda was living, told her what Mrs. F. said, and engaged her to return the middle of September, on the express condition above mentioned, assuring her that we would receive her back on no other condition. Accordingly she returned at the time^appoiqt ed, and remained with us about six weeks, found there waa no alteration in her for the better, and that we could not get along with her as our help After some abusive treatment which she had shown to my wife, I conversed with her kindly but plainly, and told her to leave the house that day. I reminded her of the promiseto do as she did at ttrot. She insultingly replied that she never made any such promise She was much offended and aaid that she had long disliked my wife, and that now she dis liked me as much as she did her, and added " I'll pay you for this." I said to her, Rhoda,you profess to be a Christian, and how can you show such a disposition 7 How could you now retire for nrayer in such a state of mind ' She then hecaoie calm, and made an apology, and I gave her permission to stay till the next day. 1 obtained another girl immediately. Rhoda left my house an the third day of November, and said she was going to ur. Hoyt's, wbo, as I understood, married her cousin. Whether (he went there or not at that time I cannot say. Bne never came to my house again while i wo* at home to my knowlodgetill oneslt-rnoon, 1 should think, the latter part oi Novem ber I have an impression that she then came lor her trunk ; but o- this 1 am not positive. I know however that I was not at home alone when she called ; lor the girl who then lived with us was utnome taking care of my little daughter, while Mrs. Kairchild was at the Odeou Rhoda came up stars aud aat awhile with nc in the study. She had not been there long before a female friend called, and I went immediately with this friend iuto our silting room in the basement. Rhoda soon came down into the room where we were sitting. In a short time my wife returned from the I.owell Lecture Soon after her return, Rhoda left. I believe, in the omnibus. From that time I never saw her, nor did I have any oommuni cation with her written or verbal, till tne last Sab bath but one, I think, in April, 1843 On that day she attended my meeting in the afternoon. She came into my house directly after meeting, and stayed perhapa an hour. Aa 1 was engaged in the study with the clergy man who was then preaching for me, I saw her only at ?he entered the house, and iust as she was leaving it. On the Friday following that Sabbath, aha called at my house about 3 o'clock, P. M., and requested to see me alone. I went wiih her into the parlor. She then told me that ahe was aick and poor, and wiehed to go home to her parenta, and n quested aome aid from me. 1 told her that 1 waa aick myaelf, and about to take a long and expensive Journey, arid dependent on my frienda for assistance She then said that ahe wished to state to me more particularly her circum stances ! told her that I had not time then to attend to her ; for I was going to see a gentleman at that hour on the Neck ; but if she would call the next day, or wait till I returned, I would hear her. She replied that she had rather converse with me then, and would walk with me over the bridge to Washington street. To this 1 made no objection. And as I was not quite ready, I told her that she might|walk on and that I would soon overtake her. I overtook her soon after she entered on the bridge. She then gave me to understand distinctly what her circum stances were, and said that ahe must have aome money. I told her thai if such were heraituation ahe must go to the man for money who had put her in that situation. She re plied, " I must have money ; and if you douh give me some, I will put it upon you." I remonstrated, and en treated, and threatened. She (hen said that (he did not wish to injnre me ; that what she wanted was money, and that if 1 would give money she would not put it upon me: otherwise she would. Perceiving that she was bent on her object, and recollecting her previous threat when I tamed her away irom ray houae, I aaked her how much I must give her? She said two hundred dollars. I then asked her wko told her to come to me for money ?? She said that her sister (Mrs. F.asty) told her to come; without saying positively whether I would give h r the money or not,1 told her that I must see her sister, and agreed to meet them cn the Common at 8 o'clock in the ovening; I then went to see a kind and generous frie d, him told him in confidence and with tears what had taken place, asserted my innocence, and asked him to advise me what 'o do; after talking the matter over some time, be said that all things cansidered, I had better pay the money, one hundred dollars then, and the other hundred at some future time; an allusion was then made to my feeble health,my dependent family, my contemplated journey, end my scanty means of subsistence, when he said he would give me the money on condition ol a promise from should i me that his name should never be mentioned in connec tion with the subject in case, the affair should evt-r be come public; that promise I solemnly made. I met Mrs. Kasty and Khoda at tue time appointed; I told Mrs. K at once that Rhoda had falsely accused me; that I never had any improper connection with her, and of course could not have put her in that situation; 1 then take I her what Rhoda had said to her? the replied that Rhoda h. d told her ahe called at my house the latter part of Nov. or ear ly in December (she could not recollect which) found me ?t home, and that I then had conaoction wit., her by over Kirsuading her and almost forcing her; she also said that hoda tola her that that was the frit and the only time; after converting some time on the subject I agreed ogive $300 : ?100 then, and the other when I returned from Europe, or if I travelled in thia country, I would pay it in January if 1 lived to return. I then geve Mra. Kasty one hundred dollars lor her aister, assuring Iter that I gave it, not because I was guilty, lor I was not; but to save my character, my family, and the church from reproach. I told them both that I would not pay one cent except on condition of their promise, which they were to regard as much binding on their souls as the oath of <>od, that my name should never lie mentioned in connection with the subject, and never alluded to in any way to my injury. This promise they then made in the most solemn manner Kible. After this, Mrs. Kitty intimated that she ought eve something for keeping the matter a secret; and 1 gave her ten dollars, adding that I might, if able, give her something more et some future time. I have not seen Rhoda from that time till the present I was informed that soon alter that interview she returned to her father's in Maine. I have been censured for paying money, and en tertng into any such agreement. But those who know my peculiar circumstances at the time, my leeble health, the recent attack which my enemies had made upon ray oharecter, and my constitutional temperament, being na turally timid and shrinking hack from all contention, will not I hope be very severe in their censures. No one ean tell what he will do till he is tried. 1 well knew thst if she were to lay it upon me, her oath would he taken, while I could aay nothing I now regret that I took the course I did. But I am not alone in this matter Others better than myaelf, ha.e done the same ? Karly In May, 1843,1 wrote a letter to Rhoda. In that letter 1 asserted her knowledge of my innocence, and re proved sad condemned her wicked conduct in obtaining money in such a way. I cannot now distinctly recollect the contents of that letter ; but I am ouite turn that the 1 denied ; ' following expression* were in it: 11 denied your charge a' flnit. I deny it now, and shall deny it till I die'' I alto said, " My character l? everything to me, and I had rather sacrifice all I have in the wc rid than have such a thing ?tid of me, evon by a female to whom ' had never spoken I then reminded her oi the condition on which 1 had given her money, enjoined upon her the importance of fulfilling her solemn promise, and entreated her not to add sin to sin by violating that promise. I regret to learn that that letter has been destroyed. About the middle of May I set out on my journey, and returned early in Sep tember. In six or eight weeks after my return, Mrs. Kasty called at my house one morning, informed me that Rhode had a daughter born on the 18th of Sep tember, and that her lather had come, and was then on the old bridge wishing to see ma. 1 told her that 1 would aae him in half an hour. 1 knew from what had previously passed between us, that she expected moiu mom y, and 1 gave her five dollars. I lound him and Mrs. East) on the bridge. He immediately informed me that Khoda told him that 1 waa the father oi her child. I said to him that the charge waa false, as she will knew After conversing a while, he said that Rhode had never mentioned mt name to him in connection with the aubject, till about the time of her con finement. He said that he bad some alter the other huu dred dollars which I had promised her. 1 told Mm that 1 did notpromiae to pay it till January, and asked him what she had done with the other hundred. I In rr plied tnat she had but five dollars when she was confined. By this time we had crossed the bridge and Mrs. Easty parted tiom us, agreeing to meet us on the Common at -J o'clock. Mr. Davidson ami myself then walked together for some time and talked the matter over I asked him what Khoda hud told him He replied she had only told him I was the lather oi the child, end that I never had connection with her but once, and that was done almost by force.' I again asserted my innocence He said it might be so; but Khudu had put it upou me. and he bad comu to settle with me. 1 told him tnat 1 would pay the other hundred dollars on the Common at 3 o'clock. "But," said he, 'that is) our settlement with bar. you must now settle with me And you mu?t give me a year fi-r six years," 1 told him that such a demand was most cruel and unjust, aud that I *" ' --?? 1 - 1? ?"nf innnnnnrfi could not comply wiih it. I again asserted my innocence, spoke of my leeble health, and eaproased my tears that 1 should never be permanently testored He said that he should not expect oi mu impossibilities; but if I were able . ??._ i... , ??,i?.i t mint do it or he RIIQU1U I1?V r*|lOci Wt mu ?in|swmsiwssa>s?w) - to pay iiiin the sum he hen demanded, 1 must do it or he would expose me. 1 found that be was fixed in his deter mination; that he bad me now in his power, and that my only prospect of safety waa to yield. We then separated. I went directly to my iriend, told him that I had seen Rhoda's lather, and what had passed between us. As the matter had now been communicated to a third person, he expressed his fears that 1 should be betrayed, lie said he would sec me again in half an hour. I theu called, and he gave me one hundred dollars. And as he put the money into my hands, he said with much emphasis and decision, ?' Let what will come you are never to trouble me in this matter,or say any thing,either directly or indirectly which may lead any one to suspect me." i most solemnly assured him that I never would. Censure has been cast upon ibis friend lor what he did, and upon me for not disclosing hia name. But if I were permitted to state all the circum stances of the case, and the reasons he assigned why I should not connect his name w ith the tifiair, 1 am sure that snch censure would be withheld. At any rate I ahull strictly adhere to my promise. Let what will come, bis name shall forever remain a secret in my bosom. it shall never lie made public through me And why should it be I It would prove nothing aa to my innocence or guilt. I sometimes regret thu- 1 mentioned the fact at all But in giving an account of the matter to my friends, 1 mentioned it in the order of events as they transpired. Whether I have done wtong in this thing 1 leave the can did to judge At2o'clock, 1 met Mrs. Eaatv on the Common, her lather not having arrived She said she had not spoken of the matter to any one, not even to her huiband. She further sttted that as soon as her husband had heard that Khoda waa going to have a child, he put It dinctly upon Mr Hoyt. Her father soon joined us and having con versed with them for some time, I gave him the money, assuring him that I gave it not to hide my guilt, for I waa not guilty ; but to save my character. He said my character should be preserved harmless He then took his daughter's hands into his own, and said in the most solemn manner, "I consider myself as much hound to keep the matter secret as I do to seek the salvation of my soul. And you, Mary, must bind yourself in the same manner." She replied, "I do. I will never mention the matter to any living creature." We then separated. Soon after this, if my memory serves me, I wrote the letter to Khoda which has been publish ed. There are aome unguarded expressions in that letter which have received a different const:uction Itom what was intended. Suffice it to say, that my object was to write in the kindest manner possible, that by an appeal to her sympathy and tbe sympathy of her father, 1 might make assurance doubly sure that I should be protected from all harm. I did not dare to rpproach or threaten, lest I should oft-.-nd them and provoke them to say or do something in a passion to violate their promise It was to accomplish this object that I expressed my self in such kind and charitable teims. The whole affair had con vinced me that I could not appaal to any principle of ho ueaty, and that an appeal to sympathy was my last and onlyresort Kor this mason 1 wrote as I did. Last October, I sent Mr. Davidson fifty dollars, which was received by him as I have recently learnt from the postmaster at Kdgecomb. I heard nothing more about the matter till I teceived a letter Irons a friend in Boston, the early part of June, mentioning that Khoda was in the hands of ene mies, and tnat she made certain diaclosutes implicating my moral character. What haa since ti an spired is well known. The shock was too great fot my leeble body and mind to bear. My reason was dethroned, and I was left to make an attempt on my life. The loss of blood soon restored my reason. I deeply lamented what I had done, implored the forgiveness of my Clod, gave my part ing directions and pivice to my Iriends and family, as serted my innocence of the crime laid to my charge, and waited patiently lor an exchange of world, expecting every moment to be my last. But Ood saw fit to spare me, for what purpose I know not. May 1 be resigned to his holy will! 11* earnest prnyer is, that lot me suffer what 1 may, he will preserve to ma my reason 1 have now given, according to my best recollection, a true and faithful account of this unhappy affair. I have doubtless omitted some things?but nothing, I be lieve, which is essential to a right understanding of tbe matter However dark the circumstances inay appear against me and however difficult it may he for me to disprove the testimony brought to convict me of crime, yet 1 believe that the time will coma, even in this world, when my innocence will be made to appear ; but it not in thia world, it certainly will in the world to come Ifl am guilty in this matter, then is the peaceful traveller guilty who gives up hia purse rather than his life to the high way man. I am well aware that the influence of money haa been and still is exerted to de* stroy me ; and them are some who seem to indulge the most deep rooted enmity and hostility. Indeed, one man of property, (Joaiah Dunham,) has been heard to say, " I will leave no stone unturned till I have got Mr fun child out of the ministry.'' What poor man. and especially what clergyman can withstand such influence? J pro fess to he ttie servant of a Master who. when he was re viled, reviled not again, who forbids retaliation, and en joins it upon his followers to render Jove for hatred and Jrood for t vil May I ever act consistently with this pro t-islon ! Whatever the decision of the f Council may he, (and they can Judge only from the evidence presented.) I shall have a claar conscience before Clod in thia matter, and the judgment of the great day will declare it. The season?the crops?the CLIMATE of OCR country. ? We art* now in the month of August, and the reason is so far advanced that we are able to take a general survey ol the crops ot our country The wheat crop is generally heavy. In New York and New England uncommonly so. In Pennsylvania, Maryland,Virginia, it is a full average,perhaps more than that; but in Onto, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Iowa and Wiscon sin, the immense rains in June and July, injured the crop. We reason, from all the returns before us, to aver that the wheat crop of '44 is the heaviest ever helore raised. There ia undoubtedly more wheat raised this than laat, but it is very doubtful whether it ia any more in pro portion to the increaaeof population. The coin crop ia promising in this State as well as in the Middle State*, and also throughout New England, and it looks well at the West, but the contained rains, before alluded to, is said, in many section* to have done this crop an irreparable in jury. The thousands or rather millions ot acres planted with corn on the fertile bottoms ot the Wabash, the Illi nois, the Missouri, the Arknnsng, the Red and the Missis sippi rivers,were overflowed in June, for such a length of time, that this great western crop must thereby *e di minialifd. But tne Eastern, Southern and Middle States will repair thia deficiency so as to make a full' average crop. The green cropa?such as |>otatoee, peas, ta uns, tur nip* and clover, are exubeisnt beyond precedent. The earth is laden with the luxuriance ol this vegetation. There ia so extraordinary a diversity in the climuie of the American States, even of those not far distant, that it is almost impossible to speak gent rally of the climate of our country. Its variety almost forbids generalizing. Of late, there has been considerable of a drought in Maine and the east part ot Massachusetts ; while in Connecti cut and Kastarn New York the country has not suffered. Ii this vicinity, wa have been blessed with wsrm and fertilizing rains, from the first of the s immer On the contrary, through the Southern tier ot counties in this Htste we understand that they have had a very dry spell this summer, snd their green crops are said to have suf fered. To! travel farther south: the southern part of Alabama were severely elllicted with s drought in May; while it wss net trlt in the noithern and rcntrsl nrrt of Georgia. The diversity of onr climate is snch, that so long as the laws of nature continue as they are, it pre cludes the possibility ef a famine. Tho United States, in the immense variety of its productions and the wonderful diversity of its climate, presents greater rapabilitiea of in dependence than any nation in tne world. Since our people have stretched beyond the Alleghsnie* Into the valleys of the great west, the apprehensions of a famine which forty-live and fifty yesrs unco, in timrs ol severe dronght, beset the residents of the Atlantic States, are past. The twenty nine states and territories are now a world by themielves the people reaping an aimndance at least in some sections, while In others tbey might not gather a sheaf ot grain In looking at the general aspects ?I the climate of our whole country, dnrlrig this summer, we arc struck with the fast that it shows a general pre valence ot rain. In no section ol any large extent, hts there boon an intense drought There have been some sections which havesuflered, but not to as to embrace the limit* of a tingle state. In 1941 it was different. New England, South Carolina and the western states, suffered severely from parching droughts.?JHhovy -drgus, -dug S Bcenfs on wit MinsiMirrt ?Imagine, reader, u Isk* of 400 miles through a region finely improved-all one scene of desolation on their hand Here tne comfort able f|Usrters, sunk, hilh-n ar.d dilapidated?the rattle from a thousand fislds gathered in herds upon small patches ol land part y dry, perhaps kneed<spin water, walling and moaning moat niteoueiy?herds ol dser, huddled together at the mercy of the mnrksmen?bears clinging to logs And here, as in one instance we looked on, a woman, do Urate and fair, carried by her husband through water a hundred y arda to a shoal place, where he deposited her on a trunk until some rhanee opportunity should otter lor her resent.?Concsrd'a fniilMfnc*.

Bennett, Jisq.: Being a subscriber to, and a constant reader of your universal Herald, which brings us news irom almost every corner of the fglobe, with so much regularity and dispatch, 1 deem it proper to let you know that we have some news in Georgia, even in the very beat of dog days ol the almanac. Ac cording to due notice given through the public prints, with a regular invitation from the Clay Club in this town?a mass meeting of the whigs of Geor gia was held here yesterday. It may he proper to inform you, that our town (or village, as it is more generally termediiaone ol the most delightful places in the State, very centrally situated for such a pur pose, with a line railroad to th?\ sea board, and crossed at every angle with line roads to every part ot the State ; possessing a liberal, high minded population, the wealthy part not rich enough lo make tools ot themselves; the poorer part general ly tar above waut; so betwixt the two extremes a happy medium of intercourse is kept up,s? metliing better than that existing amongst your codfish aris tocracy, so graphically described in your editorials occasionally A few of our leading whiga in Morgnu, whose hearts were much larger than their intaiie, taking up the proposition ot Col. Joseph H. Lun ; km, one of the delegates from the State to the Whig Con vention in Baltimore, which wan to have a macs convention on the good cause in every State in the Union, took a notion that we must have it in Ma dison. It was a large idea for such a small place but thry went to work with nil their might?en listed in their cause some of the rich and substan tial men of the party, whose influence soon ce mented the whole whig power of the county ?a barbecue was projected on the most magnificent scale, which has been gloriously carried out to the utmost satisfaction of every individual who at tended. ,P? Tu??d<iy, the .'10th ult., the* delegations Irom all the adjoining counties, with crow ds Irom dis tances which we did not ex|iect, as-embled in thousands, marching through our village w nh their banners, music, flags, coons, carls, wagons, coachep, and vehicles of all det-criptious. I have not language to express the enthusiasm wl ich per vaded the multitude?the hurrahs' ihe firing of cannon, the simultaneous burst of rejoicing from old and young in our crow ded streets, almost made the stones cry out; it was truly a muss movement. All around the village for hall a mile, waa one crowded encampment. The houses of our citizens were thrown open; the occupants, both wing and democrat seemed to throw every nerve into action to welcome and entertain their friends from distant partB. On the morning of the aisr, the procession was formed of Ihe several delega tions ond Clay Clubs, with music and banners, >yc.. numbering upwards of ten thousand; hun dreds and thousands looking on?they marciied in martial array to the camp ground about one and a half miles irom the village, to a most beautilul place, where a commodious stand for entertaining 'u aM duly prepared, and tables erected, the addition of the lengths in aggregate being me mtle, a 1 sumptuously filled to overflowing, meats el all kinds barbacued in the finest style. We were lavored with the attendance of the most dis tinguished men in our state, with several from south Carolina and Alabama. The convention was called to order, a most eloquent pray er from the Kev. Mr. Mosely, one of the ablest and most ettectual whigs in our state and a real Boant nges. ihe Hon. John M'Pherson Berrien was unani mously elected president of ihe convention We had from him, from Mr. Pr?ston and Gen Wadriv Iliompsou of S.

Texas, the immediate annexation of Texas!?We whigs here say Texas too, but we want to do the ifur.g which is right about it ; and it will not be four years before the Democrats in our State will tliHiik us for just hold ing them back on this favorite hobby, and permit ting them to walk into that land of promise, in a right way, instead of running out of Georgia be tween two lights, as many of them have done.
