K Polk?and extract from a letter (as the reporter understood, perhaps speech,) of his, in which he came out in favor of works ol internal improvement by the General Government within the states He wus just so in regard to eveiything This was what the great democratic party had brought out tot the four nule heat at the fall races! A little beaten, broken-winded, foundered, spring-halt, shuttling, spavined, bob-tail nag of Tennessee, to run against thegreat Eclipse! [Much laughter, and some pun ning among the democratic members] There was a turning up of the nose, a sense of ihe ridicu oue, in the mere idea of the parallel. One had been | identified with all the great events and measures in our political history tor the last forty years. A man ?ay, every inch a man, in heart and intellect, in firmness, grasp, and comprehension of mind?a whole head und shoulders above any man that had ever set his foot-print on this continent, save one only When the tyrant power of Great Bntainw?a seizing our citizens, and confining them in the loathsome dungeon of a prison-shop, whose *oire was it that sounded in thunder loneBof indignation through the land, loud and long and deep, till the injury was redressed!

And *iirn another crisis arose in our afiairs?a crisis which shook the government of the country to us ceutre, which caused the good man and ihe patriot to turn pale, and made Jefferson himself declare that it struck upon his spirit like an alarm bell in the dead hour of night, wno was it that came to ihe rescue, threw himsell into the breach, and saved the coun try 1 Henry Clay. And then, in that other cnti cal and trying hour, when the flag of disunion was raised in South Carolina, and the lawsof the Umon wert? resisted at the cannon's mouth, while we had in the chair of state a man of iron nerve and lion lieurt, who swore by the Eternal that the law8 should be executed, and if one gun was lirsd by Smith Carolina, "he would hang Calhoun and McDuffie, and Hayne and Hamilton, and the other leaders of the rebellion, as high as Haman, who was it that came again ab our deliverer, with a heart deeply penetrated by the crisis of his country s fate, and, casting on the issue ad he had held dear in life, once more, by his prudence, moderation, and skill, assuaged the angry eleineuts, and rescued this fair laud from the horrors ot civil discord It was Heniy Clay. When the hour ot danger came, there was he; and wherever he came, danger was quelled, disorder fled, and public prosperity smiled upon her restorer.

Some of the papers have alluded, in this connection, to the connection ol Geo. M. Dallas, their candidate for the Vice Presidency, with ihe ca?e ol Monroe Edwards, and a corres pondent has sent us ttie following communication upon ihe subject. He is intimately acquainted with all tne ciruuinstauces ol the transaction, ana his character and standing vonch for the truth ol the facts alleged.?Courier inquirer. Messrs. Editors:?When the notorious Mon roe Edwards was caught, a large part of the mo ney which he hail obtained by his forgeries was found in Ins trunk. This was attached under legal proceedings instituted by the parties who had been robbed. After Hie forger had been tried, convicted, and it had been clearly established that the money found in his possession was the actual proceeds ol the check, Acc.. out ol which he had swindled the M ssrs Browns and Corrie, those gentlemen re joiced that their troubles were over, and that the anxiety and expense which they had suffered had resulted in the conviction of a great criminal, antl would restore to them what was left ot their pro perty. It was true the torms ol law required the afMchmente suits to be put an end to, either by c-ius ntorbv trial, before the money would be taken trom the custody ol the Court; but in their simplicity, they anticipated that the lawyers em pit yt d by Edwards, in Philadelphia, would not only render every aid in their power, but would also express some regret at having been in any way instrumental in helping so great a rogue in keeping hone.-t men out of their property. Great was their surprise when they met witn an unexpected obstacle, and were told that they should not get the money without a fight, unless they paid what these learn- d gentlemen were pleased to call alee.

^Jam'ks K. Polk's Charity?While James K. Polk was a meiiibrr ot Congress, and during an unusually long and intensely cold winter, while the poor ol Washington, always thinly clad and living in trail tenements, were literally freezing, a propo sition was made to place some thirty cords of wood belonging to Congress, but not wanted during the session, at the disposal of the Mayor of Washing ton, for the relief of the perishing poor. This prop osition, though favorably received by generous, kind hearted men, was resisted by James K Folk, whose vote stands recorded against a resolution appropriating a lew cords of wood to relieve desti tute women and children Irom the biting frostsand piercing blasts of a cold winter. Mr. Polk could sit by his warm fire, eat his canvass back duck, drink his wine, and pocket eight dollars a day, without giving a thought or bestowing a stick ot wood upon the suffering poor who were shivering and freezing all around him. Such I acts as these show a man s real character. On such occasions, if a man has any will be touched. Ttie d..stress of women and children will melt the ice away from a man's heart, unless it is in an atmosphere cold as that of Greenland. And a man whe, like James K. Polk, refused to give a tew cerd* ot wood to the perishing poor ol Washington, in the midst of a winter remarkable for its severity, ia not entitled to a poor man's vote. Alb. Ev. Jour.

" lion Tyler's Sanity Questionable?Au Arti cle appears in the Madwoman, signed T , to which il the reader will prefix B , it will stand for Bob Tyler, no less a pereonage than the veritable son of the Captain himself. The Madisontan is the particular organ of the Captain, and with one or two exceptions, the only organ that advocates the claims of Mr Tyler to the office of President. The utter contempt with which the Captain's claims to the Presidency are spoken of by all par ties, has completely deranged the intellect of Ins son Bob. Bob is evidently laboring under that peculiar hal lucination of mind, wkicb is so frequently observed in vouug men with white hair, lank visage, and a cadaverous countenance. He evidently supposes that the whole conutry is in favor of the Captain, that the convention of office-holders and office ex pectants that nominated the Captain was the "peo ple's," and that his Pa is the only man that can beat Messrs. Polk and Clay. He says Pa "will not re tire," that he is determined to keep possession of I the White House, though Bob's vote should be the only one he receives-" The Gazette has discovered that Clay will take out grease. We are glad to hear this. We feared that after his defeat this fall, he would be thrown aside as utterly useless. But the discovery corrects us, in what we should have known, that the most insiguificant thing has its uses ; and although, as the people will demonstrate this fall, Clay is unfit for the Presidency, according to the Gazette, he will do to take out grease.

I. [Correspondence of the Herald. 1 Gekeni-ort, L. i., Aug. 2,1844. Acknowledgment*?Greenport Vindicated from the Charge of Whiggery, Miggery, and Intemper ance. Dear Fir I have just been reading the sensible and appro priate remarks, contained in the Herald of the 28th ult. upon the subject of the Long Island Railroad. Those remarks curry with them the evidence that he who penned them, had a just appreciation of our beuutiful little village, and not only so, but that he also had the candor to express his views. Why is it, dear sir, that when a man wishes to send the truth abroad, he takes the Herald us his organ 1 Especially, why is it so, while the host ol publications about you are constantly crying out against vour paper 1 I will tell you why?those very publications themselves, while they abuse you, are barbarously slandering those in whom they wish to produce the conviction, that them selves are truth and justice, and you falsehood and deception Perhaps the remarks, above alluded to, were written by yourself; it so, they are but one small evidence added to many, that while you re spect truth, you regard with a proper deference the feelings of jour lellow men As jusnce, how ever, is a prominent trait in your paper, 1 should merely have read your remarks with pleasure, and let them pass in silence, had not some of your con temporaries taken a widely different view of the subject. You, in a becoming manner, speak of Long Island, and especially < f Greenport, and no one would judge from your remarks that we are famous for being altogether negroes or sharks; nor would it be supposed that our locality is as little known as is the centre of Ethiopia You treat us as if we were members of the same race to which you belong, while others seem to teach that our mental mercury rises no higher than that of the Hotentots. Take, for instance, the "Tribune," a paper pleading sapiency, honesty and justice. Our friend, Greeley, a very knowing man, says, "The eastern extremity of Long Island has heretofore been a terra incognita nearly as little known to geographers as the centre of Africa, and notorious only (!) for its fish, niggers (!), and locolocoism: the latter a necessary consequence of its benighted condition. _ The Lone Island railroad has sent its iron arms into this dark region, opening the way for the light of civilization to penetrate, and justi fying the hope of a decided increase of knowledge and improvement in inany respects"! Now with all due deference to Mr. Greeley, I would ask what geography he ever studied; und I I would seriously inquire if he ever read any tra vels other than those ol the celebrated Baron Mun chausen 1 Every geography of modern date re cognizes such a place as the "eastern end of Long Island ; and if Mr. Greeley will look into the History of Long Island," he will find such a place as Oreenporc spoken of; but as fortune will have it, not in suck a manner as he has spoken of it. On OIney's Map, Greenport is put down as containing 1,000 inhabitants, but Mr. Olney does not inform us that *? niggers" constitute the "noto riety of our population; he more properly leaves this for the Tribune to do. Does Mr. Greeley sup pose that the railroad " lustifies the hope of a de cided increase ol knowledge and improvement 1" I bad hoped so too, but alas the "celebration," so loudly harped upon by him, dispersed my hoiies. How are we to be informed 1 How improved ! Is it by having intemperance introduced among us by people professing to be our teachers ! Does it take seventy-five baskets of champagne and two demijohns of brandy, to open our minds for the reception of " knowledge!" Is it from men who get so blur, that while speechifying they require a mental prompter, not to say a physi cal supporter, that we are to receive our mental growth. Does Mr Greeley mean to intimate that we are to have Buch an exhibition as the "cele bration" proved to be, held up to us as an example! Is that the " knowledge," that the " improvement" he would give us! We ask ignorance in preference. We would rather be notorious for "fish ard uig Sers" still A young man came io this place lrom lew \ork some time since, for the purpose of having a " spree." When arrived, however, he touud that he hud taken his journey in vain, lor here he could find no liquor to spree it upon. He threatened that upon his return to New Yoik, he would report what a noxious place this Greenport was, and would declaro to all his crmrades that here he could find nothing to drink. Undoubtedly lie made some of us feel bad. Poor soul! He will probably soon fare belter, for if we follow the ex ample of our teachers, ol such glorious memory with Mr. Greeley, lie will soon find liquor enough lor himself and all his friends in this hitherto des pised locality. But as Greenport has been, and now is, celebrated for its temperance principles, God Grant it ntsy always remain so, even thoagh ignorance as black as night encircle us. One poor boy among us has already been " en lightened" from the effects of the "celebration," f*?r he has found out that broken chHmpaign hot lies have a penetrating or rather a separating qua lify, having had one of his toes nearly cut oil while walking among the ruins of that embodiment of ? civilization." Perhaps others ol us would be en lightened if some of our worthy celebration teach ers would publish a chart of their travels on that day. though I very much doubt if they themselves could faithfully tell the various courses tney steer ed while here, since the mysteries of the fumed labyrinth of Crete could be more easily unfolded. However, for Mr. Greeley's benefit, 1 propose that they give a chart or the country for him especial ly. Henceforth, he might be a little more enlight ened. To be serious, the remarks of the Tribune are considered gross and insulting by every man of intelligence in this place, and especially is it consi dered so by his own subscribers A company of us subscribed for that paper for the purpose of getting "light and knowledge," not abuse, and I one of his subscribers, have ever read him carefully and at tentively. Is that the reason we are "notorious for fish and niggers!" By the way, I am informed upon responsible authority, that more niggers were brought to this place by the "celebration" company than can be found in ih?- whole town of Bouiholii. Certainly, if "niggers" render us famous, the celebration" people are doubly famous. Greenport is a thriving little village of but yes terday, as it were ; many of its inhabitants are en terprising men from Connecticut, others from your own city, and owing to the natural facilities of the pluce, we hope it will yet take such a rank as to be recognised by such an ignorant geographer as Mr. Greeley apjiears to wn-h to be considered. Our ptoole are kind, they ever receive the stranger wuh open arms, and snow him as much hospitality as can elsewhere be found. Nature has done mucn for us; we will try to do more for ourselves, and we humbly hope our eflorts may be so far success ful, that we may ever be recognised as an mlelli gent, temperate and hospitable people.

Bring a constant reader of your japer, I have been surprised to see no mention ot our place in its columns. Having spent seme time up here yerv agreeably, 1 will venture a lew remarks, which ?W'SKSEffiSdS. be.uufui arc- te coming daily more known and appreciated, and J have never seen the betels and private dwellings on the borders of the Lake so full ol company. Monck's and Berry's are too well known to need comment. The former has had so many visitors as to be obliged to prepare a large room over one of his outhouses, which accommodates about six teen persons nightly, and is called ihe Astor House. It has become the head-quatterB ol the " wicked Bquad," who are the successors of the "Plight Owls" of last season, and whose principal object appears to be to make night hideous, and pit vent the inhabitants from indulging in loo much sleep. The " Squad" is composed ol very young gentle men, whose youthful blood requires some outlet. However, their achievements tor the last iwo nights have been so excessively annoying, as to cause a protest from the ladies at Monck s, and it is to be hoped that it may have the ?fled ol lessen ing if not altogether destroying the evil complain ed of. This "Squad" is very despotic, and any murmur or disobedience to lis orders is sure to be repaid by a ducking in the lake.

A Hunter In Extreme Peril. The most interesting hunter's story 1 have ever heard was told me by our host, Mr fercival, who has followed the forest chase from his youth. In 1807, he was on a trapping expedition, with two companions, on the Washita, when they bit mm to kill buffalo, bear, and the Imp. r game, i nt lie remained to trap the streams toi beavt r. lie had not met with very good success, and bud been without meat lor about twenty-lour hours, when, turning a small bend of the river, he espied a no ble looking old male buflalo lyiig down on the beach. Having secured his canoe, he crept softly through a corn brake, which lay between the ani mal and himself, and fired. The shot was an in dilferent one, aud only woundeu the animal in the side, but it roused him, and, having crossed the river he soon laid down. This was hbout noon, when the animal, having again gazed, was reeling himself in a ciol place. Percival now crossed the river in his canoe, and got into tne woods, which were there very open and somewhat broken by lit tie patches of prairie land, a very frequent oci ur rence in these parts of Arkansas, where forest and prairie often seem to be contending lor tbe niaste I ry. But the bull, being suspicious, re>6e before the hunter came near enough to Inni, and took to the open woods. Percival was an experienced hunter; lie had killed several huudred bufl'ab es, and kn< w their tempers in every sort of situation. He knew hat the animal, when in large herds, was easily mastered, and was well aware that when alone he was sometimes dogged, and even dangerous ; he, i therefore, followed his prey cautiously tor about a mile, knowing that he would lie down again ere long. The buflalo now stopped, and Percivul got within fifty yards of him, watching an opportunity to rtrike htm moitally ; but tbe beast, seeing bis enemy so near, wheele d completely round, put bis huge shag-y head close to the ground before his fore feet, as is their custom when they attack each other, and rapidly aovanced upon the hunter, who instantly tired, and put his ball through tbe bull s nose ; but, seeing the temper he was in, and know ing what a serious antagonist he was when on the offensive, lie, also, immediately turned and fled. In running down a short hill some brims threw him down, and he dropped his gun. There v as u tree not far from hirn of about eighteen inches di ameter, and every thing seemed to depend upon his reaching it; but, as lie rose to make a push lor it, the buffalo struck him on the fleshy part ol the hip with his horn, and slightly wounded him Be fore, however, tbe beast could wheel round upon bun again, he gained the tree, upon which all the chance he had of preserving Inside rest'd. A w ry few feet from this tree grew a sapling about lour or five inches in diameter, a most fortunate circum stance for the hunter, as it contributed materially to save his lite. The buffalo now doggedly billow ed up iiis purpose of destroying lus adversary, and a system of attack and detente commenced that, perhaps, is without a parallel. The buffalo went round and round the tree pursuing the nun, jump ing at him in the peculiar manner ol that animal, every time he thought there was a chance ol hit ting him; whilst Percival, grasping the tree with his arms, flung himself round it with greater rapid ity than the animal could follow him. 'nthts man ner the buffalo harassed him more than lour I ours, until his hands became so sore with tubbing against the rough balk ol the oak tree, and his limbs so fatigued, that he begun to I e disheartened. In going round the tree, the l.ufialo would some times pass between it ana the sapling ; but the dis tance between them was so narrow, that it incon venienced him, especially when he wanted to make his jumps; he, therefore, frequently vnt round the sapling instead of going insideof it. Ihe time thus consumed was precious to Percivil?it enabled him to breathe, and to consider how he should defend himself. After so many hours fruitless labor, the bull seemed to have lost his pristine vigor, and became slower in bis motions. He would now make bis short start, preparatory to his jump, only at inter vals, and, even then, he jumped doubting.y. - it he saw that Percival would avoid his blow by swinging to the other side It was evident he was baffled, and was considering what he should do. Still continuing in his course round ne tree hut in this slow manner, he at letigih made an extraordinary feint, that dors hon or to the reasoning powers of the buffalo feu v. lie made his little start as usual, and, when fVrn val swung himself round, the bull, inatesd ol a til ing his blow in the direction lie had been accus tomed to do, suddenly turned to the side of the t ree where Percival would be brought when had Kwunf ImnfeHt round, and struck with aUhts imfiht. The Teint had almost succeeded Percival only just savetl his head, and received a severe contu sion on his arm, which was paralyzed tor an instant. He now began to despair ol saving his life; hia limbs trembled under him; he thought the buflalo would wear him out, and it whs so inexpressibly painful to Inm to carrv on this singular defence,that at oue tune he entertained the idea if leaving ihe tree and permitting the animal to destroy him, as a mode of saving himself from pain and anxiety that were intolerable. _ But (lie buflalo, just at that time giving d. ctded symptoms of bung as tired himself, now stepped for a few minutes, and Percival took courage Re membering that he had his butcher's ktule in his breast, he took it out, and began to contrive plans of oflence; and when the hull, having rested hile, rrcomnte ,ced his old rounds, Percival took advan tage of the slowness of hvs motions, and, using * great denl of address and management, i-oninv'd, in the course of hall an hour, to stab and cut him in a dozen difterent places. The animal now he came weak from the lose of blocd, and, alihough he continued te walk round the tree, made no more I jumps, contenting himself with keeptrg his l>? ntl and neck close to it Thia closed the conflict, lor it enabled Percival to extend hisrightarm aadgive liirn two deadly stabs in the eyes. Nothing could exceed the frantic rage of the nnwieIdly animal when he had lost his oight. He bellowed, he groaned, he pawed the ground, and gave out every sign of conscious ruin and immitigable t"ry leaned against the sapling for support, and twice knocked himself down by rushing Willi his head against the large tree. The second fall terminated this stiangc tragic rombat. wlnch had now ^' neatly six hours The buflalo had not strength to use, and the conqueror, stepping up to him, ana lifting up his nigh shoulder, cut all the flesh an 1 ligaments loose, and turned it over Ins back, n "hen, after resting himself a few minutes, sk.nred the beast, took apart of the meat to his canoe, made a tire, broiled gnd etc xx.-Feothmtonangh.
