King Log of: the Gazette.
We cannot sufficiently admire the calm, cool
self;cOmplaisance of King log of the Gazette,
With what equanimity, with what dictatorial
pomposity, he draws himself up, and, like Sir Ora :
cle,lpours out his critical fulminations on our poor
devoted editorials! He is perfectly excrutiating !
Oh 1 what shall we do, whither shall we fly to es
' cape this terrible reviewer? If he don't stop we
will be a used up - man ! for his irony, like the sun
in dog-days, has destroyed all our "verdt&e," and
ther is nothing left of us save the "sear and yeL
low leaf!" • Some of hii attacks upon us have been
perfectly carnivorous! Alas; alas! that we should
have forsaken the."verdant" hills of Ohio to be de
voured alive, 'without benefit. of.clergy, by such a
bloOdsucker! We can say' nothing without hav
ing King Log to pounce upon us. If we sit down
welare vordant"—green—from the country! if we
rise up, we are et‘pcetical rhapsodist!' and should
we , mount on "Pegassus" and fly to 'the very tip
top summit of Olympus, we dare say the Gazette
man would be found sticking beneath the tail of
our steed! Day by day the Gazette comes to us,
and it is like eating coals of fire to read it! Like
a horrible shadOw it follows us in the night and
destroys our slumbers! It may be fancy, but we
hear it in a monotone, "when the moon am gwine
aWay," crying "Gtzz-z-z-z-z-z-z-z," and when,
in agonizing fear, we attempt to slap it off, with
a sharp, shrill ettc! it darts out of our reach, to
whirl, and reel, aid dance above us like a perfect
ittip,of darkness! 'Do hare mercy on us, dear Mr.
Wiaite, for our'suffeitings is intolerable! Were the
editor of the Gazette an "Hyrchn tiger" or an
earm'il rhinoceros," had he the strength of Hercu
les-, the valor of Alcides, or the proportions of the
giant of Otranto. we might screw up our courage
tolhe stickiro , point and venture to defend ourself
from his attacks; but such are not the shapes he
comes in. • Alas! how is it 'possible to contend
with a pesty, buzzing, blood-sucking insect, that
even could one hope to demolish him would not
bel worth the tenth part of the arnmunition expend
' ekin the contest. Could one catch him; it would
bat dirty one's fingers to crush him; in fact the bet
ter policy would be to act as uncle Toby did to
wards the fly-"Go; poor devil!" said my uncle
Tfiby, raising,the' window, "go! the world is wide
enough for both of us!" But still, a philosophic
pcilicy like that won't do with this editor of the
ti,." Gazette. Henry. Clay excused himself for fighting
a duel with John Randolph, by saying that he look
ed upon the knight of Roanoke only in his public
'character, as a representative of the people of the
Ohl Dominion, and not in his private one, of a
crack -brained gentleman: just so in his public ca
parity we must look upon the blathering fool of
the Gazette; though nature made him a blockhead,
the respectable patrotis of his paper have elevated
him to the rank of King Log! In his robes of
royalty, only, Will we have any thing to do with
him. Should his log-ship make war upon our edi
torials we will never defend them; they are dashed
off curry* calama, and are at his or any other
critic's service. They may be torn, turned, tortur
ed and twisted into a thousani shapes and it won't
distress us. The editor of the Gazette may indulge
iii his witticisms about our "poetical flights," but
We hope he will never have occasion to charge us
with his own characteristic, which is leadeu dul.
nets. We have said more than we intended, but
our pen would write on—it has a diamond point,
but we sha'at let it scratch him. We ask forgiv
:ess from our readers for playing truant to settle
our account with the Gazette man. • We shall let
him alone for a while-unless he buzzes too much
about our ears. One thing he may be assured of,
the will never retaliate; he may write to eternity
and we will' never transfer a single effusion from
his Bceotian scull to our paper for c t Weal dissection.
His scribblings are tainted—attic salt would'nt
save them; they. would stink if preserved 'in amber.
Good bye, Mr. King - Log! before you, again at
tempt to be witty with our "rhapsodies," turn your
eyes a little more inwardly, and say this short pray
er, and perhaps you will be graciously freed by
the gude lord from 'a little of that extra vanity
which is your besetting sin

Pittsburgh and Connellsville Railroad.
It affords us pleasure to say , that Mr. LATROBE,
the engineer of the Baltithore and Qhio Railroad,
will commeneehis survey to, -day, of the Pittsburgh
and Cannellsville Railroad; and furthermore, that
the distinguished President of the Baltimore Com
pany, the. Hop. Louis MCLANE, is, entirely favor
able tcrthe work.

Jourital called upon us since the publication of our
last paper, and requests us to say, that be never
told any person that he .disapproved of the course
pursued by the Editor of the Gazdte, in regard to
Mr. Etamexon's double game of Masonry and An
timasonry. He demanded our informant's name ,
which we declined giving, not wishing to raise
questions of veracity in reference to this or any oth
er matter. We then asked Mr. Rinnir. if he did
approve cf the course of the Gazette?—which goes_
tion he declined answering. This is a "negative
pregnant,•" (in legal parlance) in relation to which
the public can form their own opinion.
Fins.—A frame stable, belonging to Mr. Mc
31.esTrats, proprietor of the Eagle Tavern, Liberty
street, was destroyed by fire yesterday morning
between three and uix. o'clock. The Work of an
SHIPWRECK AND GREAT Loss OF LIFE.-By
the United States frigate Constitution, at New
York from the Pacific, via Rio deJaneiro, we have
an account of the loss of a Russian government
brig,'near the hisbor of St. Peter and St. Paul, on
the coast of Kamschatka, in the - month of October,
The vessel was. from Okotsk, with a cargo of
wheat, for the winter supply of the colony—mount
ed six guns and had a compliment of thirty or
forty men, besides sixteen passengers, most of
whom were women and children. .
One passenger only (a girl about eighteen years
of age,) the commander,.and about ten of the crew:
succeeded in reaching the shore in safety. The re
mainder, with the exception of a man who was
crushed to death by a gun, found a watery grave.
It appears that in a heavy gale' from the south
east, the vessel anchored near the reef instead of
making for one of the many safe harbors with
which the bay is filled; and a heavy swell setting in,
she parted her cables and went ashore.
"A FAILING TREASVIII."—The Whigs are busy
in representing that the general government is
nearly out of funds. This is all gammon. The
WashingtOn Union says: "We warn the people of,
a ronspirary to injure the government and the ,
country, by endeavoring to induce the impression
that there is 'a failing treasury.' The means of
the government are ample; it has a surplus in cash
of more than five millions, and large accruing re
venue; its treasury notes are receivable now every .
where in payment of public dues, and redeemable
here in specie at the treasury, whether before or
after maturity; and the unpatriotic effort to depre-,
date them will prove a signal failure, and will sink
the projectors to the level of the enemies of their
country during the last war."

of bread-stuffs has experienced a furthur advance
What will the Whigs say? What •will Deacon
White say? Will the Deacon lift up his eyes in
holy horror and proclaim it "impious" to attribute
this relief to the farmers to the sagacity of the
Democratic party, and the operation of the Tariff
The Whigs consider it all fair to charge the de.
pression of bread-stuffs on the modification of the
Tariff, but it is "impious" to give the new Tariff
any credit for prosperity.
ACCOUNTANTS INSTITUTE.—At an examination
held in this institution on Thursday last, a hand
some GOLD PEN was awarded to Mn. FILLECIS 11
ROB n, as a premium for proficiency in Book Keep
ing; and the same premium was awarded to Mn
JAMES DEVISE, for the greatest improvement in
Penmanship. The public will no doubt know how
to appreciate the value of such encouragement to
the pupils of this Institution.
FAREWELL CONCEIIT.—The Odeon will be
crowded to-night with the last performance of the
delightful and laughter-provoking Harmoneons.—,
Persons whc, would enjoy excellent music, and pas's
an evening in the midst of mirth and pleasantry,
should go early, in order to secure a good seat.-:-
Take them all in all, The Harmoneons stand un
rivalled in their profession.
Cozisur. To Buenos AYRES.—The Cleveland
Plain Dealer says: We learn by a friend at Wash
ington that our fellow townsman, B. B. Taylor,
Esq., has been offered the appointment of Consul
to Buenos Ayres. We hope Mr. T. will except the
appointment, as we are assured that it could not
be filled with a better American Representative.

would cultivate a style, "familiar without gross

Woor.--We learn from the Journal of Com
merce that six thousand pounds of fine Saxony
wool have been purchased in Pennsylvania, by an
eastern manufacturer, at sixty-two and a half cents
a pound. This is, we believe, the highest price
that has been paid this season, and the wool is said
to be equal to any raised in the country. An a
ticle of a similar character could not be imported
for Less than a dollar a pound.

Men of Literature. Its attacks upon Wilson Mc-
Candless and the Democratic party, are almost as
1 terrific and fatal as the onslaught of Don Quizotte
upon the wind-mill! The editor of the Journal,
on Saturday, gives the writer the following dig un
der the fifth 'rib: ; .
„ On reflection we defer publishing the com
munication of "a Member of the: Whig and Anti
masonic Committee of Correspondence.” We'deem
it proper, however, as a member of that Commit
tee to State, that the article which appears in yes
terday's Onzette as an "Address" purporting to
Come from the Committee in question, is not the
production of that body, and has neither been au
thorized nor sanctioned by it.
' We are not content to be held'in any degree re-
Sponsible for such matter, which, ilk:night harm
lessly, enough appear as the voluntary contribu
tion of very obvious inexperience, cannot so innox
iously go aground as a grave manifesto of Whig
and Antimasonic Organization.

The .American, issued on gaturday, cuts the edi
tor of the Journal up into sassenger meat! This
is all a "family quarrel," and we don't care edam

the fight between her husband and a bear. Hands
off, boys, let them have "fair play and no gouging!"
•' After an absence of six years from the Whig
ranks, and the Whig party, the editor or the Jour
' nal professes himself now to be Whig again—ccin.
descending to vote, as he did in 1845, at least part
'of the Whig tidal. Last year he voted for Black
- and Kerr--he can assign no good reason for not
voting for them now as he did then, and indeed'
Consistency would require that he should. He is
doing what he can, however, to distract the party
in the meantime, and his attack upon the address
of the commitee must emanate from a desire to
produce a result of this kind. Mr: Riddle 'cannot
be compared in this matter to the bird which foul
ed its"oun nest, for he does not properly belong to
any, but a part of his ninny readers will doubtless
be surprised to see him - show his hand so early.
"We do not know who wrote the address, but
we know that it is very• ably written, and if not by
a member of the committce,by some one in whom
the committee had confidence and was approved
by a decided majority of that body. Every one
must see in this course of the Journal an unfitness of
things, in regarding that paper as a Whig one. No
reason is assigned for this condemnation.—lt is
therefore gratuitous and can only be accounted for,
from the tact that it bears pretty hard upon those
on the locofoco ticket whom he is supposed to fa
vor, because it is known he did favor them last
year while professing to be a Whig, even more
strongly than he does this year.
"We had intended publishing the address to-day,
though not given to us, first to publish, but it was
crowded out by European news but will be in time
for our next weekly for our "few" readers."

The following extracts are from the Monthly Re
port of the Office and Register Department of the
American Moral Reform Society, in New York
"July. A poor and very respectable woman
whom we well know, and whose husband has been
out of work ten months, called for advice in certain
matters. I expressed a wish to see the work she
had obtained, which she was reluctant to show me;
it was a jean coat, with one pocket and four but
ton holes, and must be well done, or she would
get no More.' It was long before I could prevail
on her to tell me the price she obtained for making
it saying, the man would give her no more if she
told—he gave as much as others—and was better
than others, as he was kind and good. She had
walked two mileS to obtain it—must do the same
to return it—and was, to receive fire rents only !—
Who would dare. to buy or wear a garment so
""The same man had given out; as she told me,
the week before, seven hundred shirts to snake, for
free cents each, and then was. obliged to send twenty
poor, starving creatures away without any. These
customers speak highly of his justice and endeav
ors to serve them. At NO. —, street, a Jew
gives ten cents for•making fine shirts with ten plaits
in the bosom, ne4ly made, and four button-holes.
She made one, going for it and returning it the
same distance; but found she should starve at that,
and declined taking any more. She had to buy her
own thread, costing two cents, which he did not al
low, and two days were required to snake the shirt."
The Whigs have talked eloquently about an al
alleged bargain between Sir Rontrir PEEL and
Sir Ron Ear WALKEn, "'-by which, for certain
considerations to be rendered, this country was
to reduce the Tariff on foreign goods and manu
factures, infinitely to the damaging of our laboring
classes. We do not know what the consideration
was, but we reccollect very well how bitterly the
Nor( h American denounced the project, as fraught
with unimaginable danger and misfortune. Since
that period, however, bread-stuffs have advanced
in price, in Europe, and,the demand for American
flour and wheat has greatly increased, while our
own interests have suffered in nothing; unless the
effects of the Whig panic can be called suffering.
We suspect that by the time the new Tariff has
begun to operate, there will be very little margin
left for the fullilment of the prophecies of the
Whigs, elicited by the astounding combination be
tween the United States and Englandon that ques

ous to the year 1844, in which the editor says the
list is too long to giVe the Whole names, but it
amounts to upwards of $200;000. Ido wish Mr.
Biddle had given us the whole list and specified
particularly how many of Joe Ritner's and Thady
Stevens' favcirites were included in the number. I
am informed Mr. Michael Clarkson, who heads
the present list to the tune of $12,032 32, was Ste-,

and in particular I wish Mr Biddle would publish
a list of the defaulters since the lseof March 1844;
I mean since the present C:anal Commissioners

us the whole, history,—l—am curious to see how
they will compare with the defaulters previous to

"Our public improvements have never been so

which Mr.! Foster is the principal, has been eco

every means to make our canals and railroads a
source of profit to the State. We see that this year.
notwithstanding the delay in the navigation by the
high water, our improvements have produced more
than they did last year, ,up to the same date. Will

GEN. Ilousitsr.—The story (says the Nashville
Orthopolitan,) that Gen. Houston "shoved the jack
plane" in this city twenty-five years ago, is travel
ling the rounds of the newspapers. What a pity it
is to spoil so pretty a story ! A friend and near
relative of; Gen. Houston has handed us a memo
randum of his early life to the following effect:—
In 1811—'12 be was a clerk in a store at Kensing
ton. East Tennessee. When about 17 years of age,
he enlisted as a private in the 39th Regiment ofU.l
S: Infantry, commanded by Col. John Williams,
formerly Senator in Congress fruit) that State, hav
ing previously applied for and failed to obtain a
commission in the army. In a short time, how
ever, after entering the army,,in consequence of his
good conduct, he was appointed an Ensign. On
the 27th of March, 1814, at the battle of the Horse
shoe, he Veas wounded by a musket ball in the
right shoulder, and by an Indian arrow in the side;
of the forrher wound he has never recovered. After
the peace of 1815, when the 39th Regiment was
dishandedie fixed his residence in Nashville where
an elder brother resided—previously to 1845 he had
not visited Nashville. (The story of his "shoving
the jack plane". probably originated in the fact that
his brother was a cabinet maker,rand a most esti

the brandy. It is bad enough to make mere tipsy,

he, accompanied by two friends,'sought D..M.

S. Myers, and Wm. S. Burr were summoned before
the niayorat 11 o'clock, but the examination was
postponed until 5, p. m. At thathoar an immense
crowd - collected at the court honxe., Frederick

Being interrogated' by the mayor, replied that he
knew nothing of his own knowledge of the acts

Wednesday morning at 10 a. in., in order to allow
the State to collect testimony; and the accused were

it was yesterday by an occurrence so-full of pain-

'that Mr. Hoyt, although not dead, 'remained in a

may be so.
BLADENSBURG DUELLING GIIOUND —Being call
ed to visit this town, so famous ^in the annals of
duelling, in the discharge of a public duty; I felt
some curiosity to, visit the bloody; ground. Why
this spot should have been selected, . no one can tell;
but it is famous through all the South It is situ
ated about half a mile from the village, near the
site on which our troops were stationed in anticipa
tion of the, arrival of the'British during the last
war, and from which they so vigorously ran as soon
as they saw the foe. In a secluded spot, near the
edge of a thick wood, rude, wild, uncultivated, with
no foot-path leading to it, you stand on 'the soil
drenched by the life-blood of many a man.—Here
Decatur, Mason, and Cillyjell. One of the most
ferocious duels on record, was fought here between
Gen'l Mason and McCarty. Mason challenged Ids
opponent; but McCarty, on the graund`.that his sight
was defective, declined fighting. He was posted
as a coward. Being a military man, Mason's chal
lenge was accepted. Behold the weapons!—togeth
er they must leap from the dome of the Capitol; or
sit each upon a keg of powder, and insert, with his
own hand, a slow match in the btizighole; or fight
with muskets at ten paces! Mason protested that
the conditions were savage; McCarty persisted in
them. The parties met, and MaSon was literally
blown to pieces. A few week.sl : ago a duel was
fought by two men from North Cdrolina;-Dr. John
son, one of the parties, was instantly killed. The
stakes still stand, at ten paces apart; the Marks
made by the feet at the turning, of the body, and
deep stains , of Johnson's blood, are still upon the
earth. The ground is black all around; while the
tall rank grass tells us, as eloquent as at Wateriho,
of the richness of humane blood. ,
eanni Tolls.—The amount receivedlor tolls on
all the New Yorlt,canals, frorrrthe commencernent
of navigation to the 14th of September, inclusive,
is $1,589,678, an increase of $135,528 over the
same period last year.'
The Universal Fever Cure.—Typus and scarlet fe
ver, fever and ague, and in fact fevers of every de
scription have wspeedy and never-failing remedy
in Clicker, Cr's Seger-roofed Vegetable Purgatire Pills.
Owing to their marvellously purgative and cooling
qualities, their freedom from unpleasantness, of
taste, gripe and nausea, and the peculiarly power
ful influence by which they control and purity every
portion of the system, the great majority of the
medical faculty of qcew York think of using no
other purgative medicines in these diseases and.the
certificates of these gentlemen haVe heen io numer
ous and full of eulogy as to justify the proprietor
in warranting a 'cure wher his pills are taken ac
cording to directions. Ffirthertinire, to show
confidence, he will return- the money paid for'his
pills Mall cases where they do not give entire sat
isfaction. Unlike all other me4cines. Clickener's
Sugar-coated Vegetable Pills are 'perfectly - pleasant
to the taste, which greatly enhanee their value 14 - ith
