I like to forgot to Tell you about Cousin Pete he got snapped on leg nog when he Heerd of my engagement and he s been As Meller As a Hose a pole Ever sense. From the new York Sun. I Don t care., yes you do care we All care for he world s opinion however much we exposure to it and better Able to under go even its unjust condemnation or. Krom the pennsylvanian. Clay and the Tariff. We Are not Aredis posed to Public men who come before the people Lor their Suffrages any reasonable amount of siring that they May place themselves in such variety of attitudes As they think necessary to Render themselves agreeable but really or Clay is so eccentric and his shifts and changes that it a twine factory to find him in line of late he continually requiring More and it is scarcely never in favor of Ahugh Laroff a this be soil certainly leaves some of the whigs of Penn Sylvania in a strange position with or. Van a Ireri As the builder up of the High Tariff of Anid with or. Clay As its Puller modifier and reducer of All tariffs. Jiey have or. Clay s own word for is the fact and he is of course Good evidence so possible to pay out Mee t hid requisitions. Could t Tell when Daylight was Brakin Only by the chickens Crowin and was monstrous glad 10 hear pm for if i bad to stay there one hour More 1 Don t be Lieve i d Ever got out of that bag alive. Old miss stallions come Oul Fust and As soon As she saw Llin bag ses she May try to cheat ourselves Wilh the idea that we Are Uiti Gierent to it. A rash or a foolish action which May Render us obnoxious to censure or Ridi Cule never fails to excite this we May have no compunction of con innate regard for the con sequences to others but the first though will shall i appear in the Esti mation of friends and acquaintances How Many workers of Many tyrants on a Petty Many oppressors of the weak and unfortunate Pup vie their course in secret with Hearil Esis indifference to the sufferings they occasion who tremble it the very thought of having their published to the world in connexion with any one of those acts. Public opinion is the severest of All Why because ils infliction Are in Are the scorpion stings to penetrate the disgrace is not in Llie prison cheerless White washed cell being deprived of heaven s Blessing no he Marks it in the averted look in the quiet contempt and scorn of Bis fellow men and he feels to m the. Secret desolation of Bis own breast. There is not a civilized human being who dares Brave Public opinion unless indeed god ? i Maine within him has been entirely effaced and every fast enough to he darts Hithe and thither in the political sea with such surprising velocity of Fin that Long Tom coffin himself could scarcely preserve the whig boat from being dragged under by this Alert and agile Levan Hian. Time or thereabouts when the Clay electioneering was conducted on the High Tariff principle the Appeal being altogether directed to the manufacturing interests what upon Aielli has Joseph put in feeling that rive. Dignity to manhood has been swept away by be overflow i i a it was the american Clay s american system and they were enemies to their country who would not go As far As he in its support. Then suddenly came the letter to of. Bronson to which we have had fre quent occasion to refer. In this or. Clay assumed the democratic ground of an economical administration of the government Wilh a Tariff for Revenue so adjusted As to afford incidental Protection to such of our manufacturers As need it. But now the teat Pacifica Tor has issued another Leller addressed to or. Meri Wilhur of Georgia Mem Ber of the last Congress and opposed to the present Tariff from which epistle we copy the subjoined passages or. Clay to . Oct. J84.3. You tire right so far As the record Iso Mitrani in. In voter statement that i did not vote Lor the thrill in iai6 or l8 a list i supported their principles and have always admitted t Uit i was in favor them. I did not vote for the Tariff of .1838, for when however yer. Van Buren col. Linton col. John son or Wright and others of our present oppo far As himself i us concerned. He is not in favor of duties being so High As to amount to a prohibition of the articles on which they Are rather prefers the georgian theory Tariff and that would be non . Or Clay lakes so much line that he involves his adherents in. A complication of tangles. There Are also further contradictions to he reconciled foe in a recent letter from or. Clay to. Messr-s., Brenham. And Bledsoe he distinctly says that he voted for the Tariff of 1816, 1824 and 1832 but he informs or. Meriwether that he did the Tariff of 1816 and 1824. But let this pass Ami to put i things Siom Elial straight it would he Well for of the Penn Sylvania whigs to w Rise forthwith to Ashland to ascertain what do y or. Clay would have Laid on Iron and Coal according of co. Incidence Wilh the Drewi of Georgia whig Gery. A you shamed ses she. In you ought to give her a prism is gift to keep All her ses miss Carline. Ses old miss stallion when i was a e used to hang up our Ivy ses All of pm to say Stock e Afore in i Felt a Little streaked too Caus they ii blushing As hard As they could i Why Tity ses the old what Fine i d like to know what harm there is in i. People now a Days is Gittin so Rnea Jou thed that thay cant Call nothing by its and 1 dont see As they s any better than id time people was. When i was a Gal you 1 used to hang up my stocking and pm my of presents e gals kept Laughin fever ses miss Mary majors o give me a Crispus you Mali ses 1 you know i promised you jut i did t mean that ses she. Be got one for you what i want you to your life but it would take a two by bag to hold it sea i do that s the kind ses she. But will you keep it As Long As you certainly 1 will Majer Tow you hear that miss Carline ses ses she Al keep it All her life yes. I will ses what is it never mind ses hang up a bag big in Jugh to hold it and you la find out in the m year tin or ome live animal or Bruin would t bark at in so she went in to Call the gals and i. Sot bar Shiv Rinall Over so i could t Spesick if i tried but i did t say nothing. Bimby they All come Ronnhi out. Re what ses miss i ing Yel Public is a tyrant anecdote of Washington at the commencement of the revolutionary War there lived at East Windsor in this state a Farmer of the name Jacob Hansel 1 aged 45 years. After the communication by Wate be tween this part of the country and Boston was interrupted by the Possession of the Boston Harbor by the British was often employed to transport provisions by land to array lying in the neighbourhood of Boston. In summer of thus employed he arrived within a Tew Miles it the Camp at Cambridge with a Large Load drawn by of team. In a part of the Road which was somewhat rough and the Rathe a veiled path Way wits rear Row he Iii i two carriages in each which was an american general offi cer. The officer in the Forward near to m his head the window Hiss Carline winked at miss Kesiah and the ii whispered to they both laughed and looked at me As mischievous As they d. They sheeted something. You la be sure to give it to me now if i Hig. Up a bag ses miss Mary. And you Promise to keep itt ses i. Well i will Caus i know you would it e me nothing that was t Worth Keepin. I hey All agreed they would hang up a bag Fotij me to put miss Mary s Crismas present in it the Back porch and bout nine o clock i told Good evening and went Home. I set up till Midnight and when they s All gone to bed i went softly into the Back Gale and went up to the porch my Mary. Of it s alive ses miss Kesiah. See it move Call Cato. And make him Cut the ses miss Carline and let s see what it is. Come Here Calo and gel a Lii bag Down Don t hurl in for the ses miss Mary. I Cato untied the rope that was round the Vicc Ard let the bag Down on the floor and i tumbled Oul All covered Hith Corn meal from head to fool. Goodness gracious ses miss Mary if it aint the major Himsel sri i and you know you promised to keep my Crispus present As Long As you lived the gals laughed almost to Deth and went to brushing off the meal As fast As they could Sayin they was Goin to hang that bag up every Crispus till they got husbands too. Miss Mary bless her Bright blushed a Beautiful As a morning glory and sed she d stick to her word. She was rite out o bed and her hair was t combed and her bed was t fix at All but the Way she looked pretty was Rale Dis Raclin. I do believe if i was froze Sliff one look at her Charmin face As she stood Lookin Down to the floor with her roguish eyes Anil her Bright curls falling All Over her snowy neck would Foteh d me too. I Tell you what it was Worth hanging in a meal bag from one Crispus to another to feel so Happy As i have Ever since. I went Home after we had the laugh out and set by the fire till i had thawed. In the Forenoon All the the Stal lioness come Over to our House and we had one of the greatest crib mus dinners that Ever was seed in Georgia and i Don t believe a happier company Ever set Down at the same table. Old miss stallions and Mother settled the match and talked Over every thing that Ever happened in their families and laughed of me and Mary and cried bout their ded husbands Caus they was t alive to see their children married. In is All All settled now cent we Saint Sot the wedding Day. I d to have course of vice. And opinion is often wrong and like All tyrants lop often visits Wilh its Power alike the innocent and the reputation and Saint ing with foul suspicion the fairest and brightest of god s Struing the purest actions and Shadow ing even the glory thai virtue Sheds upon her favourites. It is the conscious Ness of this that makes Mankind trem ble before it and though in a moment of wincing perhaps under it galling infliction you May exclaim i Don t care for the world s opinion and abuse every body around you As portions of that world you pre lend to friends and toes alike. What does it. Avail does it make you More Independent does it surround you with an atmosphere ratified that calumny Falls powerless by its influence no it is in fact use Lessly inflicting torments upon y Wiir is fighting single handed against an though cased in mail you will be overcome by numbers and conquered at last. Public opinion is in the air that pervades clings to us like our Shadow is gentle As the summer evening rough and unkind As the wintry is an inquisitor that scrutinizes not Only our actions but would Cross examine our very thoughts and pass judgment upon our is arbitrary in ils Power and despotic in the exercise of then who shall say he cares not or it when even innocence shrinks from its unjust rebuke mile world Don t care or you that s certain it would still spin upon its Axis no matter whether you were annihilated his moment or Iol but if you Don t care for the world hide your head in the most a discoverable obscurity and the sooner the better. Since Ihen we Are sub eel 10 this monster and must per Force be so it is better to Bear its visitations with philosophy always remembering that a Good name is better than and persevering with a Stout heart Uri Der difficulties of All under misrepresentations and injustice to give and called to him in an Hamn you get out a flee path 1 Munsell in i mediately you i wont get Moil fical and reduced the Tario of 18-8, Insomuch j out.

Arid it is remarkable that from that period my exertions in Congress have been i j reeled to the reduction and moderation of 1 that it was suppose in by reasonable men that it would or Tosa Tiskiy the nullifies of South Carolina. The next year i brought Forward the Coin Promise. In 1s41 i supported the Tarifi of that year which was limited to the free articles i never was in favor of what t regarded As a High Tariff. And my present opinion is in perfect Choju evidence with that of the whole whig party of the United states including Georgia As i understand it i never was in favor of duties being so High Aslo amount to a in Hihi Tion of articles on which i they Tver Laid. I have thought it Best fur All interests that there should be no should have preferred that the co Promise in All its parts including the Home valuation could have been adhered it a difficult thing As the Reader must see to reel off line for or. Clay in this tremendous Rush of his to find a shelter in the Harbor of Southern anti Tariff ism. But his present flexible and accommodating is opinion in perfect coincidence with that of tie whole whig party of the United Stales including Georgiathis is rather a singular and it is pretty Rvella understood that he whigs o Georgia Are to a Man opposed to a pros of the lion were the Olive Tariff. All the Weij Georgia congressional Del hostile to the e listing Tariff and in favo f the principle of Llie Compromise july of 20 per cent Only and Illier vain attempts to prevail on Munsell to turn out the Oscher s Carriage turned out and unsell kept the Pill.
