But regret to say that a combination office Trade demagogues and foreign monopolists does exist to put Down the Tariff of 1842. Be then the Clay and Bascom certificate analytically examined. Before we introduce the grand document to our readers it is i necessary to explain that a certain or. Hobble or gobble or some such person wrote a letter to or. Bascom As he said at the solicitation of Many conscientious men who appear to have been led to re Gard or. Clay As anything else but an up right and As this or. Hobble or gobble affixed to his signature Carres. Sec y Clay or. Bascom could be at no loss for a Cue As to what kind of an answer was expected. Hence the following Transylvania University Lexington ky., july 21th 184-1. My dear sir in reply to your letter of the 9th inst., i owe it to truth virtue and the claims of society without any reference to Tariff. Let no exciting presidential or question Lead you to fatal in or. Lbs country u full of free Trade demagogues of two Bop Cracy and cunning May deceit democracy.

Henry Clay both in Public and private life for More than Twenty years and know the charges enumerated in your Etter against the private character of or. To be utterly and basely false its statements. Far be it from us to insinuate that based m had any deliberate in Tention to deceive. We do not think some persons eminently gifted in other re Spect Are surprisingly slow in ring the characters of those with whom they Are in habits of intimacy. This truth is beautifully illustrated by Fielding when he sketches the protracted deception Practised on the Wise and amiable Allworthy by the artful and perfidious Blifil. Characters so immensely Dif Ferent As those of Henry Clay and or. Bas com cannot become intimate with each other. Without congeniality in feeling As Well As in thought no frequency of personal Intercourse can produce either True Friendship or a perfect acquaintance. But however we May construe it we Are thoroughly convinced and have endeavoured to prove that not the least Reliance is to be placed on or. Bascom s militia fines. The following opinion from the attorney general will prove of interest to Many of our readers a it decides upon questions much vexed arising out of the last Law for the regulation of the militia attorney general s office Philadelphia aug. 23, 44.

To each interrogative charge contained in your letter and in he shape of a question i re conc resist so far As fac luring interest of 1 in Sylva de and i fear we May not be their efforts the Junto of prepared and on your it is that with the people emanates All Power and it is for them to assume the prerogative of selecting their agents in carrying out measures Best calculated to promote their interests and their happiness. I have deemed it proper to la before you my views upon this All important subject which i have done a briefly As possible. In conclusion i have Only to add that i have Only one set of principles and by them i am willing to stand or fall. I have no conceal ments i am opposed to free doctrines and radicalism and a United states 15ank, in u. L of embracing hungry expectant have form they May present this Ives.

Glaring Lau before my fellow citizens of own views upon this important w a jct i will Here give an extract recently published in my position. Since the organization of our gov ill period have the people in this Oan iry and Tore especially in our Good old i Lej Slone untre important interests at athe present Lime.

T of is 12 is regenerating the whole the operation of that Bill All particularly the producing class v. Admirably fostered and protected labor and to nop. Tin government is so be formed that almost every Branch ofis by is controlled and under a per intern of monopoly. The Tariff Laws and their operation pre a singular but no less True or strange Viz that whenever we increase the on any particular item of american pro the Price of the foreign article in. A corresponding ratio take for the article of Iron. It is shown to the passage of the Tariff o flu a the article was duty free the ?r-c5 was considerably above the minimum compared with the prices since the Ope of that Law which imposes a duty of per ton. Thus while we encourage the p of auction of the article at Home convening surplus products of our farms and labor an article of indispensable valu1and at time throwing millions annually in Public under this pro Active principle comes out of the pockets the foreign . Those who at Ideal theories and not particularly familiar with the h Story of our Revenue Laws to not agree with me in this particular but facts Are stubborn and figures will i am a Plain practical Man Andi Iki nos As i find them and do not rely upon Fine spun argument based upon false the Ory to disprove an established fact. I assert then what can be authenticated hat in most articles of american production hat a Well adjusted Myslem of Tariff duties Joes not enhance the Price upon the Domestic Toni Umer but Falls generally on foreign p of duet. But sufficient articles of luxury As Silks satins wines Brandy Gold lice Fine Broad cloths can be taxed for purposes of Revenue anc1 thus Burden Liberty of speech a free press and the cultivation of principles is of Ameri can origin and should not be departed if i have not sufficiently defined my position a Luvill add to prevent any Misander stand Iii. On the Broad platform of Polk erf reaching me turn for answer it them As shamefully u in whole or in part very respectfully your obedient servant h. B. Basco the interrogative in or. Hob ble s or gobble s letter is or. Clay a Sabbath breaker a Gambler a profane Swearer which charges for the convenience of reference we shall enumerate As follows 1. Is or. Clay a Sabbath breaker q. Is or. Clay a Gambler 3. Is or. Clay a profane Swearer 4. Is or. Clay it Cetera to All these questions the Rev. Or. H. B Bascom an israelite indeed in whom there is no returns a full unequivocal unqualified negative. He does not speak from the information of. Others hut from his own a new from the Danube state that an extraordinary sensation Lias been caused in the higher circles there by the intelligence said to have been received from St. Petersburg that endeavours Are making on the part of Russia to unite Servia Wallachia Moldavia with the adjacent tur Kish provinces into a kingdom under the supremacy of Turkey and the Protection of Russia. The report adds that the Duke of leu Schenberg is destined to be the Sovereign of this new kingdom whereas according to other accounts Russia would Choice entirely to the Porte and the great european Powers. Some Steps Are said to have been already taken at constantinople to bring about this project which is considered As the Only Means of relieving the Porte from the j of faculties with which it is surrounded on Tion of militia fines and hasten to answer the same agreeably to your request these enquiries Are the commissioners of the county exonerate a Man for poverty or mus the collector imprison him the collector arrest m and Are their parents liable for their fires the state pay the costs of arresting and imprisoning delinquent militia men this act of Assembly is designed As is expressly stated in. Its title to provide a More rigid Mode for the collection of Mili a but although intended fir this Pur Ose it May be doubted whether m has been very effectually attained. It is in Many particulars so defectively drawn As to Render it difficult to execute All its provisions How Ever it will be enough to consider these defects when questions arise upon them. So far As relates to the first question i can perceive no authority in this act of Assembly vested in the county commissioners or any other functionary to exonerate a Man from Dalja a the Tariff a distribution of the proceeds of the sales of the Public lands and state debt i shall always be found advocating these men and measures with All my feeble energies. In presenting myself before you for your Suffrages under the Peculiar circumstances it May be proper for me to remark that i am untrammelled and wholly unconnected with any clique or Junto and if elected pledge myself to carry out to the utmost of my ability the principles and measures Here avowed which i have set for my Polar Star. I am fellow citizens respectively yours David m. Bull. Wellsboro sept. 18, 18-u. Ide. It is said that some intimations Ade at Vienna. At least this is list in the reports in circulation Vei Lave bee.? bought to exp Kio of c the emperor of rus expecting the Objet. R a s visit to the British she who makes her husband and Ber Chil Dren Happy who reclaims the one froth ice and trains up the other to virtue is a much Juji contemplate that any Man who had incur the payment of a militia Fine on account of poverty. The eighth Section of the Law defines the Mode by which delinquents May exonerate themselves. The ninth Section Points out the Mode by which collectors May discharge themselves from liability for certain fines but the legis lature does not seem in any part of this Law from the Bradford reporter i observe the of col d m. Bull of your place is mentioned As a candidate for Congress. Col this part of the Buli is favourably known m county and in addition to his personal popularity his views on nation of questions especially those that affect the ital interest of Pennsylvania fully Accord Vilh those entertained and cherished by our democratic citizens in this Quarter Pike. Advice to Young says i have found that men who Are really most personal from an intimate and confidential Intercourse with or. Clay both in Public and private life for More than Twenty the charges Are All base by false in whole and in now first break Bascom certifies that or. Clay of fers no claim to Christian and be hesitates not to say that he keeps the Christ Ian Sabbath with the most scrupulous precision for the charge that he is a Sabbath breaker is basely false both in whole and in in All our Intercourse with the world we do not remember to have Ever met with a Man who offered no claim to Christian and yet kept the Christian Sabbath with the most punctilious Obser Vance so that in this respect As in some other things or. Clay is one of the most remarkable men living. But if making stump speeches and attending to other electioneering business on sunday May be called Sabbath breaking it is notorious to the whole country that Henry Clay is a Sabbath breaker we have very Well authenticated accounts of still More objectionable breaches of the Sabbath committed by him but As our present object is to show by internal Evi a. A too ctn s certificate is net greater character than ladies described in romances whose Only occupation is to murder Mankind from the waiver of their i i possessed the most valuable things in the world and was about to will them away the following would be the plan of distribution i would will the world truth and Friend ship which Are very scarce. I would give an additional portion of truth to lawyers traders and merchants. I would give printers their pay. To Young women goo4 sense Large waists and natural Teeth. To Young sprouts of sense Little Cash and hard work. French abbe travelling in a stage asked by a Young clerk an and would be wit. If he knew what difference there was Between a priest and an ass. Replied the abbe. I Hen i will Tell said the clerk the priest car lies the Cross on his breast and the ass on his Back after the laughter had subsided the abbe Yea s militia Fine might be so poor As to be unable to pay it. In respect to the second enquiry i think that minors Are not subject to arrest nor do i perceive in what manner their parents Are liable for the fines it is True that act of Assembly makes no distinction Between minors above the age of eighteen and adults subject to the performance of militia duty but in the seventh Section it tha the commissioners shall Issue their warrant to the several collectors of taxes and the said collectors Are required to proceed to collect under the same authority and in All respects As they Are authorized to do in the Case 01 the collection of county rates and upon reference to the forty fifth Section o the act of the Isth of april 1834, entitle. An act relating to county rates and levies and and the authority of collectors is so expressly defined tha nothing herein contained shall authorize the arrest or imprisonment for non payment of any tax of any female or infant this provisions of the Law seems toss us v to warrant the opinion i have exp lipid. In answer to the third enquiry it appears notice to 4lie democracy of tace Utomi pit the democratic Hickory and Young inc Koty clubs and other demo cratic clubs and associations now and which May be hereafter organized through out the Are most1 and earnestly Soli cled if have not Al ready done so to report themselves without delay by letter Post paid. To the executive committee of the democratic association in Washington City d. C. They Are Reques Ted to give names of their officers to umber of Thefton Eiri Bers s important that this step should retaken to secure a More i Guient organi action of party than How its for these reasons 1st. That each association shall keep the ther Well informed of condition of parties. That authentic and Correct inform Ion May be disseminated far and wide. 3d. That the returns whether of state or Federal elections May be circulated in a form authentic and official and which can be relied upon by our friends for any purpose and especially to counteract the false impressions which May be created by the publication in the whig journals off the results of elections. It is already ascertained that that party have a Well organized system of falsehood not Only in the publication of erroneous re turns of elections but by the publication of tracts and documents. The. Whig and some of the Neutral papers in every Section of the Union attend to the first Branch of the fraud and the congressional whig Central franking committee at Washington Are attending to., the latter by publishing and disseminating one set of opinions by or. Clay for the South and another set for the manufacturing and abolition districts of the North and West also for the flip rib. Maker a or. Polk a free Trade Man and i documents for the South making him a Tariff these frauds have been detected in this i to tic refuse we warn our friends to guard them. Discredit everything i coming 1 a whig source until substantiated by info Matio n derived from those whose Effort will be not to chive but to Enlil Litchi with the Putli. O not hesitate to say thai the elections which ave been and Are being published in the Globe can be relied on by our friends Lor by purpose. They Are As accurate Asun official returns can possibly be some of which from necessity being copied from whig papers. The official returns will be published in the Globe As soon As they Are received when the organization proposed by this notice is Complete the facility for getting the Correct returns will be such is desired. To the democracy in those sections of country where no Asso Ciar Donee that or. Bascom s True Trie instance above cited sum will be client in this division of our subject. The second treated fond of the society of ladies who cherish for i or Bascom in the same summary manner u false both in whole and in part scarcely two weeks have passed since another intimate and confidential Friend of or.

A True respect for women to make the game More in Inte leads to respectful action towards them and respectful is usually Distant action and this asked him if he knew the difference Between a clerk and an ass., was the nor rejoined the abbe. Wives should be acquainted with no Beauty nor any charms but the inward one of the mind and that gracefulness in their manners is much More engaging than that of their person that modesty and meekness Are True and lasting ornaments for she that has these is qualified As she ought to be for the management of a family for the education of children for the affection to her husband and submitting to a prudent Way of living. These Only Are the charms that Render wives amiable and give them the Best title to our respect. distance is mistaken by them for neg Lect or want of interest. No time Fop. Swapping capital Story although it May be an old one was recently related at a political meeting in. Philadelphia. It was told for the purpose of Point against one of the Many More this gentleman spoke with a lit and dared not make the sweeping denial which the Rev. Or. Bascom utters with such wonderful facility. The third also basely false in whole and in this assertion made by a minister of the gos Pel will be read with astonishment by every Man who has passed a single Day in or. Clay s company and if the matter were of sufficient consequence to Merit so much trouble would willingly engage to produce within to me that the act of the 15th of Ayril to which i have above referred in the Twenty first Section furnishes our Only guide. It is therein provided that the collectors shall be authorized to take the body of such delinquent to convey him into the jai.1 of the proper county there to remain until the a mount of such tax together with athe costs shall he paid or secured to be paid or until he shall be discharged by due course of this appears to be the Only method of obtaining the costs of arresting and imprison ing delinquents. I am not aware of any Law which authorizes the responsibility to be cast upon the state. Yours with great respect see. Ovid p. Johnson att y . The Coons caught in their own Tigris exist to forthwith organize and report in accordance with the above. We make this Appeal not from any doubt of the strength of our cause or that we have not the num Bers to carry it on to Victory. We must not despise the enemy however corrupt or weak they May be but knowing them to be weak and corrupt should make us vigilant and Active to guard against the unfair and in just Means to which they will from Neces sity resort to cover their weakness we can assure our friends that we have no doubt Polk Dallas elected. We must nevertheless do our duty. We make the Appeal with another View that channels May be established through which we can develop to the american people one of the most corrupt and villainous schemes Ever concocted by any Paity which has been set on foot by a Bilgery to subjugate Republican lib erty and bring our institutions Down to the Footstool of the tyranny of the old we do not fear the scheme. Its exposure will not Only defeat its object but will overwhelm the men and the party who Yed and Are attempting to mature it infamy so deep that the friends of civil and religious Liberty throughout the world to the remo test generations will exec rate their very names. When the organization is Complete the exposure will be made and their plan rendered abortive. Therefore Ranize South East and West. P. S.
