[CONFIDENTIAL.] , Ashland, fccpt. 18ih, 1844. My Dkar Sir:?I received your favor of the 10th instant, in which you state that you will be in dob ton on the 19th, where it is impossible thin letter can reach you ; and I, theretore, send it to Itie Hon. Willis Green, to be lorwarded to you. I am perfectly persuaded of your friendly inten tions, and feel grateful lor ine.m. But you can have no conception, unless you had been here, ot the injury which yt>ur letter to the Tribune wac doing; and that waa nothing in comparison to tnat which it waa likely to inflict upon the whig cause in the States of Tennessee, North Carolina and I Georgia. Our lri-nd John Speed Smith, ae well i as others, thought it even endangered the State ot ' Kentucky. Thia effect resulted from your under taking to spaak of my private feelings and those ot my near and particular friends, and your statement that you had bean ten years operating in the aboli tion cauBe. , Under these circumstances, there was an abso I lute necessity forihe note which I published, al ; thnugh l regretted it extremely. 1 endeavored so to shape it as not to wound your feelings, and I hope 1 did not. ... . Had you been here, you would have concurred j with myself and other lriends in thinking it uidis ^Youmust be well aware of the very great deli cacy of my position. At the North, I am represented as an ultra sap porter of the institution ol slavery, whilst at the south 1 am described as an abolitionist; when 1 am neither one nor the other. Ah we have the same sirname, and are, moreover, related, great use is made at the south against me, ot whatever falls from you. There, you are even represented aa being my son ; hence the necessity of the great est circumspection, and especially that you should avoid committing me. You are watched wherever you go; and every word you publicly express will be tortured and per verted as my own are. Alter all, 1 am afraid you are too sanguine in supposing that any considerable number ol the Li berty men can be induced to support me. How can thnt be expected alter they have voted against Mr. Slade 1 With assurances of my thankfulness (er your friendly purposes, and with my best respects for Mrs. Clay. 1 am truly and faithfully, Your friend, rt. Clay. C. M. Clay, Eeq. Asm. and, Aug. tOih, 1844. jyiY I)kar Sir: ? 1 received your favor of the 8th inst. It you will be so good as to turn to my speech on the Preemption bill, pages 483 and 483, Greeley Sc McElratk'e edition, you wilt find a strong and de cisive expression of my opinion against the assump tion ot the State debts. 1 have never entertained or expressed any other opinion. I he onjT reliel which I have thought ought to be afforded to the States, in the payment of their debts, was that which would incidentally arise out ?f adiatnbution of the proceeds ot the sales ol the lublic Lands among all tlie States. But that distribution has no necessary connection with the existence of Slate debts. It was proposed by me prior to the contrac tion of most ol them. It is proper to add, that tor ihe sake of the credit of our common conntry, 1 fervently desire to see every State honorably ful filling all of its obligations. I am, with great respect, Your friend and obd't servV ? H. Clat. To the Editors:? Ashland, September 23, 1844. Gentlemen?Since my nomination at Baltimore , in May las', by the Whig Convention, as a candi date for the ofiice of President of the United States, I have received many letters propounding to me questions on public affairs, and others may have been addressed to me which I never received. To mokt of those which have reached me I have re plied; but to some I have not, because either the Subjects of which they treated were such as that, in respect of them, my opinions, I thought, had been sufficiently promulgated, or that they did not possess, in my judgment, sufhcient importance to require an unswer from me. 1 desire now to say to the public, though you, that considering the near appioHch of the Presidential Election, I shall henceforward respectfully decline to transmit lor publication any letters from me in answer to in quiries upon public matters. After my nomination, I doubted the propriety, as I still do. of answering any lettei* upon new questions of public policy. One who may be a candidate for the < hief Magistracy of the Nation, if elected, ought to enter upon the discharge of the high duties connected with that olnce with his mind openfand uucommitted upon all new questions which may arise in the course of his administra tien, and ready to avail himself of all the lights which he may derive from hie Cabinet, trom Con gress,"and, above all, from the public opinion. j If, in advance, he ahould commit himself to in dividuals who may think proper to address him, he may deprive the public and himself of the bene fit of those great guides. Entertaining this it was my intention, after my nomination, to de cline answering for publication all questions that might befpropounded |to me. But, on further re flection, it appeared to me that if 1 imposed tins si ience upon myself, I might, contrary to the uni foim tenor of my life, seem to be unwilling frank ly and fearlessly to submit my opinions to the public judgment. I therefore so far deviated from my first purpose as to respond to letters uddressea to me, making inquiries in regard to which had been much agitated. Of the answers which I so transmitted, some were intended ex clusively for the satisfaction of my correspondents, without any expectation on my part ot their being deemed worthy of publication. In regard to those which have been presented to the public, miscon ceptions and erroneous constructions have been given to some of them which I think they did not authorise, or which, at all events, were contraiy to mv intentions. . ?? In unnouncing my determination to permit no other letters to b* drawn from me on public af fairs, 1 think it right to avail myself of the occa sion to correct the erroneous interpretation of one or two of those which I had previously written.? In April last I addressed to you, from Raleigh, a letter in respect to the proposed Treaty annexing Texas to the United States, and 1 have Biuce ad dressed two letters to Alabama epon the same sub ject. Most unwarranted allegations have been iWe that those letters are inconsistent with each other, and, to make it out, particular phrases or expressions have been torn from their context, and a meaning attributed to me which I never enter "Twish now distinctly to say that there is not a feeling, a sentiment,or anopiniou expressed in my ltaleigh letter to which I do not adhere. 1 am de cidedly opposed to the immediate annexation ol Texas to the United States. I think it would be dishonorable, might involve them in war, would be dangerous to the integrity and harmony ot the Union, and, if all these objections were removed, could not be etlected, according to any informa tion I possess, upon just and admissible conditions It was not my intention, in either ot the two let ters which I addressed to Alabama, to express any | conttarv opinion. Representations had been made t. me that I was considered aa inflexibly opposed to the annexation of Texas under any circum stances; and that mf opposition was so extreme lhat I would not waive it, even iif neral consent to ihe measure by all the Strtee ol the Union. 1 replied, in my first letter to Alabama, iliHt nersonally I had no objection to annexation. I thought that my meaning wan sufficiently obvious, that I had no personal, private, or individual mo tives for opting, as I have none for espousing, the measure my judgment being altogether in fluenced by general and political considerations, which have ever been the guide ol my public con d7n mv second letter to Alabama, assuming that the Annexation of Texas might be accomplished without national dishonor, without war, with the general cenUnt of the States of the l nion ?n unon fair and reasonable terms, I stated that I should be glad to see it. I did not suppose that it was possible I could be m,8hundrr"'^ ' ?"21fln2 every body would comprehend me as intending that, whatever might be my P?rttcnlar vjew. anJ opinions, I should be happy to see what the whole nation might concur in ilesiring under the condi tions stated.

In all three of my letters upon the sublet of Texas. 1 stated that Aannexation was '""dmiwible except upon fair and reasonable terms, ?* J^e'y othei objection were removed. In */^ec.h a,',, 1 addressed to the Senate of the United Mates more than three years ago, I avowed my opposi tion, for the reasons there stated, to theassumption by the General Government, of the debts ?l the iJv*ral States.

Little did 1 think some twelve years ago, when you and I labored together in Chester county in this State, that you would at some future day edit a paper which would control such a powerful influ ence over the United States as does the Herald. In the "western world," from whence I have just returned?in New Orleans, St. Louis, Louisville, Cincinnati?every where Bennett's New Yotlc He raid is anxiously sought for, and its contents eager ly devoured. Let me add that the secret of the popularity of your paper is found in the ability, fearless independence, and manly eourage exhibit ed in the exposition of false doctrines and false theories, and particularly so in regard to the two great political parties of the present day. Honor virtue, and every principle of patriotism, is sacri! fired to an nnholy and all absorbing hunger after office. 4 A pitiable exhibition of that sycophantic nature so eminently characteristic of the lower order oi politicians, came ofl heie to-day, on the occasion of a visit from Gen. Joseph Markle, the whig can didate for Governor of this Stale. No sooner was it known that MArkle was on his way to town, than a certain politician took upon himself the responsibility of appointing himself and another a committee on behalf of the whigs of Harnsburg to wait on and escort the General to town. The' General, however, a plain, unassuming, short, thick, farmer-looking kind of a man, (who appa rently relishes good living more than books,) did not see proper to get out of the cars three miles from town and ride in on horseback, agreeably to the wishes of said committee. This rebuke little daunted the courage of the politician, who is but a little man (in every thing save assurance and self conceit). To the great annoyance of the old man (the General,) this chap stuck to hint like a leech whilst he remained in town, aid, to the utter astonishment of even those who knew him, he in truded himself in the General's carriage, unsolici ted, when he left this for Heading and Philadel phia. The political contest rages most violently here abouts. The whigs are making great eflorts to car ry this State, but the prospects of the event of the election promises them a fruitless victory, as there is no doubt here among impartial men, but that the State will go for Shunk in October and also for Polk and Dallas in November, by large majorities. COJ.ONEI. Fine Arte. Anklli's Great Paintino ?We visited yester day Anelli's immense painting ol "The End of the World." The subject, both in design and execution, having required no ordinary head to conceive, and no ordinary hand to portray, the imagination of the artist The picture relates more particularly to the revelations of St. John and other passages in the prophesies of Isaiah and Daniel. Without entering into too minute a detail, we would express our ad mirat.on of this most arduous and great under taking, a* being a startling and most effective pic ture. The various groups stand out in bold relief, aid appear as if they were detxehrd from the car ves*, in this respect vying with DebeuP* gr?at paint ing of the " Expulsion of Adam and Eve," which was exhibited here some few years back. The ar rangement ot colors is likewise admirable, and the drawing, wiih one or two exceptions, is equally de serving of much praise. But we cannot shut our eyes, as honest critics, to one or two defects in this colossal'painting. Had the lights been more con centrated andsubdurd, especially in the figure re presenting "The Church of Christ in its Spiritual Sense," it would have materially added to the ge neral effect ar.d beauty. Too much uniformity of feature throughout the facet of the females prevails yet there is lile and vigor in their various expres sions. In our opinion there is sn evident anacron ism as respects the costumes of the group of the rich man and his daughters, the former being at tired in ancient garb, while the danghters' apparel approximate closely to the rerherrht modes of the present day. We again compliment Anelli for having under taken and completed so arduous and lofty a subject and we are sure that this painting will secure him name to "the end of the world." Health.?We are in the possession of letters from the parish ol St. James, which represent that the health of the psritb ii not so lamentable as has Iwen reported.

School Home in the Seventh Ward ?A resolution to ap priate $|iib'.i6 8 J to erect a school house in the Seventh Ward, was called up by Aldeiman Diake. Alderman SuHncrraun opposed the resolution on the ground tnat none ft the Commissioners ot Public schools, exccpt one, had entered the proper bonds in the othce ol the County Clerk, in accordance with the provisions ol the School law. Alderman Dmakk proposed an amendment, that the ap propriation should be made when the Commissioners ol ifie Seventh Ward had euteied the honda. Aldeiman Schisffkli* moved to iuy on the table, and argued lurlbar ttiut they sheuld have entered the bonds within thirty days after their election in June last He contended that all the office* ot Commissioners were va cant, except one in Ibn eleventh waid, because they hail not thus complied with the law, utid that they must re main vscant until another flection. Alderman Hashhoucx replied that the Commissioners ol the 17th waul, elected I . 1842 and 1843 had given se curity, and il the one elected by the "native*'' lu l?44 had not, it wa* because he bad probably neglected it on purpose to prevent the accomplishment of the objects ol the school law, which had continually tnet the opposition ol the American republican party. Alderman ScHi?-?r.t.i.i?i replied, by reading extract* from the opinion ol P. A. Cowdrey, Esq , late l Counsel ol the Board, agaiust the principle ol compelling one ward to contribute toward* the erection ol school houses in another. Aldiwman Dassr replied, by saying that the same prin ciple existed in compelling t e tax payer* ol tne scvcial wards ot the city to pay lor the iron railing around Union Park, which frw in the lower part ol thecitv re ceived much benefit or pleasure lrem. Alderman lUsiHouca stated that the principle of the present school law,compelling the whole city to be taxed lor the support and erection ol public schoolswa* a princi ple that actuated the kgulatuie in the enactment ol va rious law*, such a* the erecti u ol budges, he. iu towns where the whole county was taxed. Heargutd against the position of Mr. Cowdrey, who ai?umei that the school law should have received a two-tkird vote, be cause it provides lor the appropriation of money Belong ing to the State, and thenloro was a violation ol the con stitution. He la leg* din opposition to this position that the money appropriated by the State lor public *ebools, wa* Included under this head, but that money* raised bj the Corporation of this city wa* not thus .included.

MchltfKiin an 1 Seaman School Hnute in Fourth H'aid ?Aldeiman Dsist moved the adoption ol a resolution to appropriate $11,443 lor payment of erection ol school house in James street, m the Fourth Ward. Alderman Houkf* ri.nt opposed the resolution, as he said the lot* co*t the sum ol $18,000, when Ihey wete wotth not over six or seven thounnd dollar*. He op posed it further, because in one ol the schools ol this Ward music was taught, and they even bad a piano to in struct the scholars, lie conten tod that the public schools of this ci't were r.hari'jr schools, and should be so consi dered. The higher branches were not to be taught in the?e school* at public ex|>en*e, and he hoped that no ap propriation* would be made to suatain such extravagance, lie argued that the school* ot the Public School Society should have been sustained, a* ne objection could tot urged agaiust them. Alderman Hishrouck repelled the contemptuous re n ark ol " charity " school*, a* applied to the public schools by the last speaker, and contended that these school* should be made the best in thr city, as Ihey weie not '? charity >achool," but the schools ol the iieoide, sustained by their money and their voice. II- injected the argument ol Alderman Schieflelin in c|-j>onition to the extravagance ol the school in the lourtn ward, and narrowed it down to the lact that some lew lessons in music were taught once or twice a week in order to im prove the taste and education of the students.

Alderman Hssanoiica then resumed Ins rentalks in rr plv to Alderinau Bchii lli-lin's attack ii|*>n the public schooN, and showed by iscts that the?e ?cheols were lar superior to those of the public school society, and that the extravagance ol that society in the paym nt ol sala ries to teachers or the most common rudiments ol F.nit lish education, was more than iq'tal to all the rxtr.iva dance ol the public schools in extending the benell's ol a somewhat finished education to then srholais. In answer to the argumert that the schools ol the society would have accommodated the childien ol theritv, be showed conclusively that not one hilf were accommodated in these schools beloie the others were organised. Alderman Mn.i.ra said the point was, why was $18,000 paid for these lots, when $7000 could have purehaaed themt Al lermnn Ccxxcns said there was something wrong about this purchase, and h" desired to know nil the facta before lie could vote lor the appropriation.
