of this is the following statement, Jaken

"Some time in January, 1823, and not long
before the election of President of the. United
States by the House of Representatives, Hon.
James Buchanan, then ti member of the House.
and afterwardsreany vears 'a Senator of the
United-States from-Pennsylvania; who had be.
some a zealous . nod influential supporter of
General Jackson in the preceding canvass, and
was supposed to enjoy his, urthounded confi
, dance, called at the lodgings of Mr. Clay, in
the city.of Washington. Mr, Clay was at the
time, in the room of his only mess-mate in the
the House, his intimate and confidential friend,
Hon. R. P. Letcher, since Governor of Ken
tucky. then also a member of the House—
Shortly after Mt'. Bu chorine's' entry ,into the
room, he introduced the subject of "the ap
proaching Presidential election, and spoke of
the 'certainty of the election of his farerite, add
ing that he would form the moat splendid Cab
inet that the cpuptry ever had. Mr. Letcher
asked, how could he have one more distin
guished than that of bfr. Jefferson, in which
were both Madison and Gallatin? Where'
would he be able tofind equally eminent men ?
Mr.' Buchanan replied he 'would not go out of
this room for a Secretary of State; looking at
Mr. Clay. This gentleman (Mr. Clay) play
fully remarked that he thought there was no
timber there 6t for a Cabinet officer unless it
was Mr. Buchanan himself.
"Mr. Clay. whit p he WM SO hotly assailed
with the charge of bargain, intrizue and cor
ruption, during the Adminiatration ofMr. Ad.
tuns. notified Mr. Buchanan of his intention to
publish the above occurrence, bui by the ear
flai entreaties of that gentleman he mos indu
ced to forbear Goin g so."
Mr. Colton states in a recent letter
; (July 1, 1856.) that this statement was
furnished to him by Mr. Clay—a fact
which was known to several of the, latter's
friends to whom be had mentioned it. Mr.
Colton states further in this letter:
"R ainy alao be proper for me to say that
Mr. Clay appended a note to the same docu
ment, advising me to apply to Gov. Letcher
for further information on the same subject:
I accordingly addressed Gov. Leteher, , and
found his lips sealed by a pledge of silence
given to Mr. Buchanan." •
Gov. Letcher had previouslY asked to
he Mlieved of his pledge of seared ; but.
Buchanan declined to do so, and. appealed
to his honor to keeP his faith. Ho is now
dead, as is Mr. Clay; , but fccitunately they
left proof behind them, and Mr, Buchanan
has not dared to deny one of the state
made by Mr. Clay's-friendil
But while Buchanan was thus playing
false to Clay he was also pniaing treach
erous to Jackson. Ho made a publication
on the subject which satisfied no one . and
was jesuitically drawn. Mr.. Clay claim
ed it as a refutation of tho charge of a
bargaid and intrigue , between him and
Adams ; but particular exprearions in the
letter were intended to give Jackson's
friends a hook to hang upon. Jackson
felt this as bad treatment; and so declared
as lately as 1840, when he wrote a letter
to a friend. of which this is an ex
Ezinfruos, Feb. 28.1844.
"Your observations with regard to Mr
chanan are correct. He thmoed a want of
moral courage in the affair of the intrigue of
Adams and Clay—did not do me justice in
the expose he then made, and lam sine about
that time did believe there was a perfect un
derstanding between Adains and Clay about
the Presidency and the Secretary of State,—
This I am sure of. But whether he viewed
that there was any corruption or not, I know
not, but one thing Ido know, he wished me
to combat them with their own weapons—that
was, to let toy friends say if I was elected I
would make Air. Clay Secretary of State.—
This to me appeared gross corruption, and I
repelled it with that honest indignation as '
[whichj I thought it deserved."

to drive a bargain between Clay and Jack.
son. And would the latter in a moment
lof irritation, write what was false I Those
are not friends of Jackson's who would in
timate so base a thought.
Now what are the facts, briefly stated?
Buchanan wished to corrupt Clay to go
far Jackvon by . proposing if he did, he
should be made Jackson's Secretary of
State. In this be did not succeed. Mr.
Clay preferred Adams to Jackson. and so
wood fur general reasons. Adams was
elected, and Clay was appointed . hia Secre
tary of State. Buchanan meanwhile
pledged Clay and Lather to secrecy con
cerning his conversation with Clay; and I
then induced Kremer to charge Clay with
a corrupt intention in supporting Adams,
Buchanan and his party joined iu this
cry., Clay sought to atop it and proposed
to prove that Buchanan had actually
made a similar proposition to that which
he was denouncing as base in rheextreme.
Buchanan begged' Clay to spare him—pro
fessed friendship, and prevailed upon this
magnanimous heart to sore his neck.
Bulmequently Letcher wished to be re
lieved of his promise, that he might state
his knowledge. Buchanan refused to per
mit him to escapi.from his pledge. In
time, this baseness worked its remedy.—
Jackson found out Buchanan's perfidy,
and be Owed upon record his opinion of
this heartless; man. Clay, before dying,
wrote a statement of the facts, which
Jackson's letter confirms. And now the
nation is rising to hiss this man., off the
Presidential course upon which he should
never have been plead. D.spised by
every intelligent and honorable man in the
country, his mime will, if placed upon his
country's annals, be associated there with
deception, cowardice and treachery, which .
has been rarely paralleled.
Of course, in view of these faces, no
friend of Henry Clay can vote for this uo
scrupulous defamer. Henry Clay knew
James Buohauan thoroughly. He also,
ties left upon record 30 opinion of the
man. It can be found in Clay's recently
published correspondence (pages 617-

ID - The "grand demonstration" of the Bu
chanan party at Chambersburg last week is gen
erally admitted to have been a failure in point
of numbers—far below what was anticipated,
under the- bill of attractions previously an
nounced. The "Transcript" says the proces
sion numbered 780, all told. By-the-way, we
notice that the Valley Spirit, the party or
gan at Chambersburg, while giving a glowing
description of the meeting and the delegations
from Cumberland, Dauphin and Lancaster
counties, passes by that delegation from Get
tysburg in profound silence. Even the nota
ble doings of Penelope• Ann failed to secure a
passing notice. Rather cavalier treatment,

in regard to one of the sufferers :--- •
We recently saw and conversil with a

Lund of violence against a fellow man.—
Strangely enough, he has counselled for
bearance. even whilst the meraittlers were
almost at lute door. He has hoped, even

might yet throw the shield of its promo.
tom between them and their merciless
toes. Even whilst a portion of the town
in which he resides was sacked by the
ruffians. he counselled non-resistance.—
And yet ell this is not enough ; this does
not ... , atisfy the greed of hungry villains.—
It would seem that, in their estimation, he
is too good a man to be on their Pith ; ha
ik, therefore, a marked man ; doomed, if
(hey emelt hint, to the halter or the aoltf

muriierous clutches is by keeping close to
his own tome. He eaaltfli go ;thrived ;
he cannot leave the Territory. It was
thought, even by a commandant of United
Slates troops, unsafe fer him to arempt lop
reach the Free States. It was thought
equally unsafe for his wife to attempt its
Martin with him. Even the rommandent
of Untied States troops advised her to
leave. with her daughter, a young lady.

ensure their safety if they remained with

Kansas Pacifica,lon Bills
irrThis‘ bill, now before Congress, is
as our readers aro aware, the Doug
las and Toombs bill, because these Sena
tors have been earnest and active in bring
ing it forvrard and urging its passage. It
is opposed on the ground that while it has,
in some of its aspects, the show of fair
ness!, oit is designed quietly and stealthily
to fasten slavery upon the Territories of
Kansas.. The authors of the bill know
well that the leading Free State men have
:either been driven from the Territoiy or
are now under arrest for constructive tree=

down like wild beasts, have been compelled
to abandon their homes, to save their lives.
