THE COST OF IT
According to an official statement from
the Treasury Department, the public ex
penses far the last three months have been
over twenty-two millions of dollars. of
which sum more than sixteen millions
have been paid out fur the army. The
force in the field is not much greater, now
than it has been for the year past. and
the comer its maintenance not nitwit if any
greater. The-war expenses fur the army
alone during this year will. thettfore, a
mount to not far from sixty-five millions,
or a million and a quarter a week. Add
to•this the other expenses for the navy, the
.list. Ate., the pensions to be paid here
talmi,, the vast amount of claims yet to come
in. Ste,... and the aggregate cost of this war
in money alone. to say nothing of the lives
desmayedi will not be Much less titan one
handled millions a year, a sum nearly
double the cost of waging war for the same
timeagainst Great Britain -in Jame, Madi

Yet while' expending this vast amount
of blood and treasure in a war for territory
that we do not want, and which all parties
now agree we will not take, a comparative
ly miserable pittance—not more than quar
ter of the yearly interst on the sum nam
ed—is denied f4r works that we do want,
that will effectually protect ,fife and 'Com

MR. CLAY AT PHILADELPHIA
Mr. CLAY reached Philadelphia on Sat
urday last, of his way to Cape May.
whither he goes for the bet fieof his health.
'rho 'Philadelphia papers aro filled with
most interesting accounts of the enthusias
tic welcome with which his entrance into
the City was greeted, and the attention paid
to him during his brief stay. On Sabbath
he attended service in Rev. Dr. Tvtto's
Church, which was densely crowded.—

together such a gathering, say. the riffle

the carriage that contained the statesman
drove to the wharf, the vociferous cheer
ing of. , Saturday end Saturday night was
recommenced and. kept tip with manly
vigor until the dignified old man was com
pelled in self-defence to lot off another
speech. We wore not near enough to
catch his words, but he seemed greatly af
fected, his voice trembled and his manner
was beautiful and impressive.
AL the conclusion there was a pause for
a minute, when the extravagance of fuel

stormiest applause. What a people we
are. to be sure,—how generous and im
pulsive, and how honest, too ! We may re.

the earnedilliese our weleome. -'!'Ills
whole business was strikingly in character
with our people, and in every respect wor
thy of them, as well as of the able and el
oquent-cause of it.• •
The cheers continued until elle.r_the
boat had cast off and was • gliding swiftly
and grandly away. Mr. CLAY took the
love of ell hearts with him. We have sel
dom seen a more interesting sight than the
parting of Hamm CLAY with our people.
The "Away !" was general and heartfelt.
The Daily News gives the following re
port of his remarks on Saturday evening
in reference M the warm and enthusiastic
greeting of the crowd which had assembled
at the house where he stopped :
"Leaving my home, some few weeks
since. to get rid of painful reniem
branees,'and to seek for some solace in
new ecenesand the attention of kind friends,
under an affliction, the most painful that it
has pleased providence to visit me with,
during a low , a life, I had no expectation--
certainly no desire—to excite any public
demonstration. Yet with all, fellow-citi
zens. I should he dead to every better feel
ing of the human heart, were I to deny
that I am mostdeeply moved by this exhibi
tion of your kindness. Entering.unexpeet
beautiful city—a city that, under all the
many trials of my life, I have looked to as
the home of so many friends, I had no
reason to expect such an assemblage, or
such an expression of your respect. Neith
er my health nor the occasion will allow
me to say much more to you—in a few
more moments and the §abbath, that holy
day of rest that we all revere, will be upon
us; but - there is one thing, gentlemen, be
fore we part, I wish you to remember.—
Thic glorious and beautiful land is our
common country—in Peace or War—
in weal or in woe—under bad administra
tion or good government, Remember to
stand by it."
The North American thus alludes to
Mr. CLAY' a visit and reception :
No one who witnessed the reception of
Henry Clay at Baltimore Railroad Depot
on Saturday—who saw the multitudes that
thronged around his lodgings at nigh:, or
accompanied those that followed hint to
the boat on his departure to Cape May
yesterday morning—could maintain his
faith in the ancient maxim; that republics
are ungrateful. Aristides and Camillus
were banished—Manlius thrown down the
'f arpcian Rock—and Henry Clay, in the
great and towering moment of hie fortunes,
was, to all appearance, abandoned by the
people to whom he looked for the reward
of a liferdevotedto their service and that
of the republic, which he had twice rescu
ed from imminent peril. .In all these ca
ses there was, doubtless, ingratitude—for
there are always men >who hate the just
and the virtuous; and malice and death
equally love a shing mark. There was
some ingratitude; but there was more
folly. All was the result of delusion—a
delusion from which a free people always
awakes, to mourn the wrong 'done to, the
public benefactor. There never has been
an instance in which a republic has nut,
ultimately, done justice to the merits of a
true patriot, and rewarded, at least his
memory, with the tribute of a never-dying

chief wail done; and ever'since, there has
been mourning for that infatuation, which
did some wrong to Henry Clay, bat:Much
more to the country, But Henry Clay
never sank one tittle in the estimation of
his fellow citixetis. Their attachments
were with' Turn through all the heat of the
contest and the humiliations of defeat; they
followed him, Undiminished, to the shades
of Ashland; and now that he quietly moves
again before the world, touched by the
hand of affliction, they accompany him

can only accord to the most worthy and

we have no complaints to make against
Mr. Marshal, who is but obeying the law
of Congress. It is the law itself we con
demn as disreputable.
There is another law in force at the seat
of Government, much more infamous than
this._ It provides that any negro may be
arrested upon suspicion of being a slave,
put in jail, and that the marshal of the
UNITZD STATICS may expose him to safe
for his jail expenses. This is the sub
stance of an enactment which Congress
has over and over again been called upon
to repeal, but which remains upon the stat
ute book, and is one of the most barbarous
We do hope there is a national humani
ty and a national respect, in this country,
equal to a solemn and everlasting divorce
between the acts of the General Govern
tifent and the institution of slavery. Upon
this subject we have no hatred to the slave
owner, nor any love for slavery; nor have
we any sympathy for that class of Aboli
titionists whose measures have forged the
chains of those they would set free.
Slavery is wrong in our judgement,wrong
in the sight of Heaven and of men. There
is no political obligation or any moral ne
cetaity which requires the Government to
participate in this wrong; and when we
see men imprisoned and Fold by the sane
lion and authority of the Government, we
are either for destroying such laws, or for
putting fetters, of some sort; upon illose
who oppose them.
This, be it remembered, is no question
of interfering with State right.; or State in
stitutions. Under the very dome of the
Capitol; beneath the stars and stripes of the
nation, women, Christian women, are sold
by the appointed officer of the President,
and the money put into the bag of the U.
States Treasury. Judas, for his thirty
pieces of: .ver, hardly did worse than this,
and like the chief priefil, we say to the au
thorities at Washington: It is not lawful to
the price of blood, it is the price of freedom
and Christianity. Slave catchers and slave
dealers may tamper with liberty ; but not
a country whose soil was watered with the
tears of freeman and drenched in the blood
of those who proclaimed to the world God's
greatest, truth, that "all men were born free
and equal," and entitled to "life, liberty,
and the pursuit of happiness."
DONA PA RTE.-A LESSON OF WISDOM
Count MoszilocoN's book on Bonaparte
has lately been republished. We are in-
debted to the good taste of the editor of the
Boston Post for an extract from it, which
he has lately spread before the readers of
that paper, which cannot fail to awaken
feeling that all ought to cherish. The ex
tract we refer to is one of those conversa
tions, in which Bonaparte not unfrequent
ly indulged, well calculated to open the
window to his heart, and in which, we
may feel assured, he spoke with the utmost
sincerity. [Springfield Republican.

yard, found the calf gone, mounted his
house, and took the road for the mouth of
Mill Creek. When he had gone about half
the distance, he met his trusty dog, tugging•
on with the rope in his mouth, leading the
calf. He gave him a word Orepeourage

ANOTHER Doo creokv.----some years ago
it was not uncommon in Connecticut' to
employ dogs as motive power to light
chinery. A Mr. had a pair of dogs
which he worked together on a sort of
treadmill, to drive some machinery. Af
ter a while the motion of the machine was
noticed from time to time to bo considera
bly retarded. The tender would go-to - the
treadmill to see if the dogs were doing
their duty. Every thing would -be found
going on right. After a little time, how
ever, there would be another interruption;
the speed of the machine would be consid
erably diminished; and so it continued, utt
-td- -the owner -began to suspect- hiw dogs
were playing some trick on him.• He ac
cordingly set a watch where all the move
metus of the animals could be seen t, and
the mystery was soon explained. After
the-two dogs had worked together for some
time, one of them' was seen, to step off the
treadmill, and seat himself where be could
catch the first warning of any approaching
footstep. After he had rested a while, he
took his place on the wheel again, and allow
ed his associate to relieve himself; and if, dik
ring this resting process, any noise was
heard as of some one approaching, the rest
ing dog would immediately jump upon the
wheel, and go to word as usual. Thus
these sagacious creatures had contrived to
bear one another's burdens; and had they
known a little more about mechanics,
and kept the wheel in a little quicker mo
tion, the trick might never have been de
tected.—Boston Evening Traveller.
A NEW COMET. -A new comet has
lately been discovered by Prof. Huard. of
Harvard University, and simultaneously
by the astronomers of Europe. It can be .
seen with very moderate telescopic pow
ers. Every body knows "the dipper" in
the Great Bear, two of the four stars com
posing "The Pointers." At 10 o'..ilock in
the evening cast a glance from the dipper

PROTECTION IN OREAT BRITAIN.—Those
who quote the example of Great Britain to
to justify the removal of all protection,
shodld read the following extract font a
speech made to -his constituents by Mr.
Smythe, one of the most efficient co-oper
ators with Sir Hobert Peel, in his recent
free trade measures:
"1 cannot, however, quit this subject or
Free Trade without expressing my opin
ion ou the abstract principle. 1 by no
means hold that the principle of Free
Trade is absolutely true, nor that it is of
universal application. If I were an .4-

I should be a protection4l. 11 I were a

TENNESSEE elects the Whig cendidati for

the present Locofoco incumbent. The Legisla
tum is also Whig, ao that the election of a Whig
U. 8. Senator, in place of Mr. Jarnagin, is immured.

IN INDIANA, the popular vote is largely in
favor of the Whip, who will have a majority on

WHY IS LT I—The Locofoco papers say that
the Mexican war is popidar with the people.—
Why is it, then, that the Locofoco majority in the
popular branch of Congress, with which Mr. Pout
commenced his eruitade in favor of Slavery' and
against Mexico, has dwindled down to leas than
nothing, ih the course of a single year IF Last

THE PRESIDENCY.—Tho Washington
Correspondent of the New York Journal of COLD
meree, who seems to be remarkably well posted up
in regard to Presidential Tay lorism, assumes to
enlighten the reading public in • recent letter, from
which we extract the following porn' mho, togeth
er with some pertinent remarks , thereon by Mr.
0 , of the New York Tribune: .
qt la a 'died fiat' that he [General Taylor] is a
candidate. I stated on authority some weeks ago,
and repeat, that General Taylor, having given his
consent to become a tandidate, will roman a can
didate, abiding the rem* of the election—no mat
ter what may be done, or se& may be numiseted by
this or dust
There is anotha matter which should soon he
set tight in relation to General Taylor's position.
$o far front Submitting Marry to the oppro&tion of
any Whig Convention, he is opposed to any party
Convention, „Bo is the ..fisti-Concention candidate
—tilsoPeopYen candidate. No one rho is is favor
of is party Coineil#o4 is in foxy: of °antral top
lot as a candidate." •
So far as this manifesto, says the Tribune, as
pe:an to speak for General Taylor only, we have
nothing to may. His right to judge for hirosel4 and
to actse,his own feelings ittall dictate, is not here' ,
called in question. But we think throe Whip
who favor the Taylor movementowe an explana
nation to their sometime brethren whodo notcon
cur with their on that point, and that this expla
nation cannot be given too promptly nor toofrank
ly: It will not serve to soy that the Journal of
Commerce man is ill informed in the premises; the
the essential question concerns not the extent of
his knowledge, but something of far greater mo
ment—good dhith, cordiality and harmony among
ourselves. ff the writer of the above is not clear
ly; informed with regard to the character and ten
dencies of the Taylor movement, there are a good
many others in this predicament, who think they
ought not to remain there. We will thank, there
fore, the. Editors of the NArthem Whig journals
who favor the nomination of General Taylor for
President for explicit answers to the following
1. Is it your understanding and purpose 'that
that there shall be a Whig National Convention
some time within the year ensuing, for the nomi
nation of Whig candidates for President and Vide
President? Will you favitif or discourage the
the calling of such a Convention by the Whig
Members of the Congress soon to assemble.
2. Suppose Gen. Taylor should be induced or
constrained to declare himself opposed to the Wit,
mot Proviso, would you continue to support him . ?
Ditto of Protection to Home IndT try and a liberal
system of National Improvement of Rivers and
& In case no Whig National Convention shall
be held, by what mains is it to be settled and de
clared that Gen. Taylor is the choice of the Whig
party 1 What if • respectable portion of our ,
friend► should insist that he is nor, and that, sup
posing a new candidate is to be taken up, he ought
to be, must be, a Northern Statesman—what are
we to do I
4. What will be the probable effect of running
Gen. Taylor pelt-melt, with all the hands of party
organization relaxed, or rather cast to the wind;
on the growth and expansion of the "Liberty Par
ty," so called I And where will the Whig patty
be, not alone in '4B, but afterwards, if that party
shall thus be enabled to poll 96.000 votes in this
State, 20,000 each in Ohio and Massachusetts,
10,000 in Veimont ace. &e.l
questions are asked in no invidious
spirit, but in that impelled by an earnest desire to
promote the National well-being through the in
strumentality of Whig harmony and A'hignFCCll
- Shall they in like spirit be answered 1
LT - The C'euripiler says "the Stag, in its anxiety
to show that to Federalism belongs the credit ofpay
ing the interest on the State debt, is proving en
tirely ton much." Our neigh's - M.lms ertainly mis
conceived the tenor of our article. We never in
tended to prove any such thing, and in doing so
would certainly be "proving too much." At least,
we do not know that either Mr. Buchanan, Mr. In
gersoll, Mr. Wilkins, Mr. Rush, or any other
prominent Locofoco Federalist, had any thing to
do with it.

and notices the interrogatories put to him, as f 01..,
"A. regards the •first interrogatory, my duties

In conclusion, ho reiterates the determination,
expressed in previous letters, not to be. the can

"If I have been named by others and considered

their guard against reports, circulars and handbills,
issued from the locofoco press, retailini - dimtnner
of base and unscrupulous falsehoods against the
Whig candidates for Governor and - Cosa., Commis
