Gimtlkmxt*:?1 arrived in this town on the 14ih instant trom Bedford county, and left next morning in the stage-coach for Columbia, Maurjr county, where i spent a day very pleasantly, having hud the pleasure of taking tea with tbe Hen. James K. Polk and lady. We had for passengers on the way, (40 miles over a good turnpike) the Rev. Mr. L? , a Presbyterian clergyman, and master of a female school in Nashville, and the Rev. Mr. Carr, ot Clarksville, Tennessee, on their way to Florence, Alabama, to attend a synod of their church. * # # ? e e The conversation finally turned on politics, in which I took part. I found tbe two Rev. gentle men the most bigoted and intolerant whigs I had ever yet travelled with. Their Reverenoes finally beoame muoh excited. Mr. L , ihe Judas friend of General Jackson, declared it would have been infinitely better if the British had taken New Orleans, or that the city had been sunk into the bottom of the ocean, than that Gen. Jackson should ever have become President by gaining the victory he did. or words to that effect. This as sertion we defy the reverend gentleman to deny. If he does, we can procure the cer tificate of his Scotch sister to prove it on him. What an opinion must he haveot Gen. Jacksonl 's he such a monrter in human shape tbat>it would have been better for British troops to have plun dered and burnt New Orleans, and ravished the women of the city, or that 40 or 50,000 people should have utterly peiished in the boiit m of ihe sea rather than Gen. Jackson should have had the glory and honor of having obtained that immortal victory!! Entertaining such sentiments as these toward* the old pitron hero, how can this reverend hypo crite, (1 use strong language, justified as I conceive by the circumstances of the case,) have the ef frontery to set at his table and partake of his hos pitality under the assumed cloak of sincere friend ship !! I felt indignant when I heard such language es cape the lips of a robed clergyman, and replied as tollows:? ' Sir, such is the intolerant political bigotry of some men, that I believe whatever Iheir positions or professions in lite may be, they would be wil ling to worship at the footstool of Satan himself rather than not succeed in elevating their partisan candidate to the Presidency." Col. Polk, for lourteen years, represented this dis trict inCongress,andpartof the time without opposi tion, Maury county sticking to him through evil and good report. There is a small clique of Fede ralists in the village, composed of some merchants, lawyers, financiers, fee , opposed to him on groundi of political differences alone. One of these is a man who has made some $50,000 by shaving the paper of his neighbor, whom 1 had a talk with. They have always been true to their wrong fede ral principles in years gone oy; voted against Col Polk, and they will do no more now than what they have always done. 1 asked a uumber of his most violent opposers in Columbia what objections I they had to Col. Polk:?that, if there was any thing wreng iu his whole private life, they, as his I nearest and oldest neighbors, ought to know it 1 They all, with one voice, to a man, declared that Col. Polk's whole private life was one of the most unspotted purity; that abetter master to his ser vants, a kinder or belter neighbor, or more affec tionate and k ind husband did not exist in the State They regarded hiin, too, as a man of the highest order ot talents; and opposed him solely ou the ground of the measures he supported. Tnere is no lady in Tennessee more respected and beloved than Mrs. JameB K Polk. She is a Tennessean by birth. Wiih a splendid form, ac companied with the most intellectual, regular and beautiful features, from which beam intelligence, kindness and benevolence. She is a professing and consistent Christian: being a member of the Presbyterian church. On reaching Columbia I stepped across to the Post-office, and had picked up & newspaper, and had commenced reading. After a time, a plain but well dressed, gentlemanly looking man, enter ed the room, or anti-room, to enquire Tor bis paper* uid letters As soon as 1 caught a glimpse of hi* features, 1 knew from the published likenesses 1 had seen that it was no other person than Colonel Polk. Having a letter of introduction, I at once address ed him as Col. Polk, handing the letters. He very politely invited me to his neat, pretty, and well turnished dwelling, where 1 was introduced to hie ?imMble lady. I spent a very agreeable evening at ru* hospitable board and fireside Col. Polk has no children The likenesses you see of him hard do justice to the strong marks of in fctuality of hiB face and head. With otoad rising perpendicular forehead, the indi cations ot benevolence, veneration and firm ness strongly developed, with caution and consci entiousness. His whole life has exhibited prdoft ?it the existence of these prominent traits ot hie mind. If I were asked what one trait of his mind ?as most predominant, I should say it was " moral courage," that rare kind of courage which at all imee, and under all circumstances, bravea the odium of doing right. He has been ail his lite op posed, on grounds of ChriBtian morality, to the principles of duel'.ing, and has frequently expressed Himself on the stump, in Tennessee, before the re puted petty insult offered by Mr. Wise, and long before|he was nominated aa a candidate for Presi dent. Now, suppose, after publicly avowin*, as ne had done, his opposition to duelling, he had sent Mr. Wiae a challenge for improperly calling in question the impartial discharge of hia official du ies, meeting him in deadly combat?would he not nave shown a want of moral courage 1 Would he uot have belied all his former professions ol opinion 1 And wwuld not his opponents have nrought forward the circumstances against hin> with all the bitterness ot party spirit! Col. Polk never during his whole lite bet a sixpence on cards, tiorse racing, or any other chance game. And ?robably at this day does not know one card front mother. He haa all his life been a strictly tem ierate man in all things, and few men, public or piivate, can show a life mere pure, more conais lent? " Without (tela, and without reproach " He is a modest and retiring man by nature, yet no man exhibiU greater industry, energy, prompt ness, desp-itcli, and impartiality, when once in of tice, than ''ol. Polk. He never sought the distin guished office foi which the democratic party have nominated him. No act of his life has been per tormed with a view of acquiring that office. Yet, it is -t carious circumstance in the annals of political war tare, that during so long an official servitude up performed by Cot. Polk, as a member of Congress, as Speaker of the House of Representatives, as Governor of Tennessee, so few of his political acts dfiord any sort ot pretence for attack on the part ol his most violent political opponents. We know ot no other such instance on record. He probsbl) nas not been five miles from home since his nomi nation. The democrats had a mass meeting in hit own town, and begged him to attend, if only for one moment, that they might cheer him, and b? cheered by his presence; but this kind request he modestly declined, remaining at home, and devo ting his attention to his domestic sflairs all day. How strongly does such conduct contrast with that of Governor Jones, his political and probably his on y personal enemy in the whole State ot Te nessee, who never loses an occasion of mountma the stump and breathing the most unfounded and malignant denunciations against him, while h? Knows, under the circumstances, reply is impossi ble from Cel. Polk When the Roorback forgery reached Tennessee, so shamelul was the hellish slander, that even the whig paiters in Tennessee refused to re-publish it, knowing it would, in that Siate, do Colonel Polk more goodthan harm. An old whig Irimd carried Cel. Polk a paper containing it, and expressed the strongest indignation at the utterance of such an outrageous slander. Col. Polk himself was the .nost unconcerned man in the community about it, and was perfectly willing ihe whigs should give all th? currency they pleased to it, especially in Tennessee, where he was so well known. No slander ever forged against him was more undeserved than this, tor a kinder or a belter man to the few servants he owns, does not exist. Nearly all the negroes came by tus wife. He does not own forty in th. world, and the most of these are the women and tVmilies. He told me himtelf, that in order to keep families twgether and to make them more nappy aud comfortable, he had submitted to con rtiderable sacrifices. He had in some cases, pur chased the husbttds of his negro women from iheir owners at high prices! and in other instances tud parted with some nf his most valuable men ->ervani8 at very moderate prces, in order that they might live with ihe wives they had married in tlie potuessionsof o'.her parties. ? n other occasions h? nad purchased the wives of his men. On oue oc casion he g?ve one ot his men, a blacksmith bv irade, liberty to emigrate with his wife and child ren, which he preferred to do, (asall could not be obtained) without any sale, whatever, merely tell iinghim to dispose of himself, and labor in such I a way as he though proper, and it not contented at any time to return to his house, where he would find a home and be taken care of. Never has a man before been so underrated in every respect, as Col. Poik, by his political opponents. [Correspondence ot the Journal of Commerce] The Private Character of Mr. Polk. Columbia, Maury Co., Tennrsssee, > October 16th, 1844 $ I reached this town yesterday, in the stage couch from Nashville, 40 miles on a good turnpike road. This is one ot the finest counties of laud in the State, and inhabited by an intelligent and wealthy class ot people. As you are aware, Gov Polk, the democratic candidate for President, resides in this place. 1 had the honor of taking tea at his house last evening, and ot enjoying the society of hi in self and his amiable and splendid lady. His fea tures are strongly marked by evidences of intel lect, blandness, firmness, and benevolence. His head would be esteemed a splendid model by phren ologists, in which the intellectual and moral facul ties are largely predominant. His forehead is high broad and full, and perpendicular, if not projecting The upper part of the head rises high above the ears. The organs of benevolence, veneration and firmness, are promiaently developed. Col. Polk's character, through a long public life, is known to correspond with these characteristics ot his mind He represented (he Oongremional district in which he lives, for 14 years. While he has at all times hud strong political opponents in Tennessee, he is without a personal enemy in the State. All, with one accord, declare, that they know of no spot or blemish on Col. Polk's whole private hfe ; that a better neighbor, a kinder master, a more in dnlgent and faithful hueband, or a more upright, benevolent and moral man they never knew ? When the Roorback alander reached Tennessee, even the whigs cried out "shame ! oh for shame!" Ot all the slanders ever started against him, thii was the most unlike the truth. All his opponent* in Tennessee admit, that there is not a kinder man to his servants to be found in the State. Col Polk is not rich. He has a moderate property, and uw ing nothing, is independent. He does not own forty slaves in the world. What he has consist of families, many of them small, having inherited them principally through his lady. He has parted with some of his best servants to gratify their wish 'o be w,th their wives, in other instances he purchased at high rates ihe wives *f his men from other parties, and also the husbands of his women, in order, as far as possible, to keep families to gether, and by thnt means to make them more comfortable and happy. His lady is both beautiful and accomplished, and is a consistent member of the Presbyterian church There is not a humau being living that isan enemy of her. It is painful to find that a man like Colonel Polk, whose whole life has been pure and without re proach, should be so shamefully assailed as he hat be. n. During his whole life he has been strictly a tern >erance man in every thing, in liquor, tobacco, in eating, and in all respects. He never gambled In all his life he never gavs or accepted a chal lenge to tijght a duel. He is an anti-dueliBt on chris tian principles He believes duelling to be moral ly wrong, and has the moral courage to put in prac tice the moral principles he professes. He is s much greater man, and a much better man, than the world, and especially his opponents, have ever given him credit for. He is a inodest and retiring man, but bold and firm in the discharge of his offi ctal duties when called upon by the people to exer cise them. I should say the moot prominent trail ot his mind was that ol moral courage, a rare and valuable trait of character. He made a good and faithful Representative, an able and efficient Governor, a prompt, ahle and impartial Speaker of the House of Representatives, aad if elected, will make an able, judicious, sound and safe President ol the United Slates?one tha' will aim to maintain the rights and honor of the country, in our foreign relations, and secure, a far as practicable, the peace and prosperity of our people at home.

She ran back and found tha wolf juat luting the infant out of the cradle by ita clothos. The animal looked at hrrwith his eyes gashing; but, having its mouth full, it did not choose to drop the baby, and spring at her ; all it wanted was to gat clear eff with it prey. The woman bad pretence of mind en oath to take down her husband's rifle snd point it at the wolf, bnt she was so learlul of hurting tho child, that she did aot put its muztle to its head, but to its shoulder. 8he fired just as the wolf was making off, and the animal fell, and couU not get on its feet again ; aud it then dropped the child out of its mouth, to attack the mother.

" Do not be alratd ma'am," ssid Malachi, " the animal is only after the augar. He likes sugar Just as well aa honey." " 1 don't doubt but tbst he's tha same beast that you saw at the honeycomb the other day," said Martin. "Lot us stay whi re we are and watah him. We may lose a few pounds ol sugar, but 1 expect he will make you laugh " " I really are nothing laughable in such a teirifio brute," aaid Mrs. Campncll.
