the prices of labor were up—the prices -of produce
were up—and-the channels for the grain and produce

Advocate has an article is reply to our comments on
Mr. Clay'e letter, in which. the editor'makes a most
weak attempt to keep up the delusive idea that HEN
RY CLAY is alone worthy the support of_ those who
think a Tariff essential to our prosperity. Iu our re
lent**, we stated that Mr. CLAY concurred in
moats with the gentlemen from whom the democratic.

agreed that' Tariff for Revenue with incidental pro
tectiop, was.the proper policy, and that the manufactu
ring ititeraltuta as much to expect from one as the
otberof the aspirants. •
• The Advocate has gratuitously assumed that either
VAN BURER or CALHOUN 'from appearances will be the
moo,' and thereupon undertakes to show that these
genthtmen are not friendly to a Tariff for Revenue.—
Now, - if the Advocate had paid any attention to our
paper, it would have learned that for some time past,
wehave not considered Mr. CALHOUN as one whose
claimashonld bepassed upon by the National Cnnven
tion. Theleading friends of that gentleman had pla
ced him in n pOsition - which would exclude him from
a place among those from whom the democratic party
would Maki, their selection, and thereford we could
have no allusion to him, as long a= he remains in that
But notwithstanding this,the Advocate has given us
noeiidence that Mr. Calhoun is hostile to a pea manent
Revenue Tariff, or would with old his sanction to such
arneasure were he elected Presicleat. An extract, of a
letter is giv.en, in which Mr. Calhoun says he is ,de
' eidedly opposed to a Tariffor the protection of ma n
itfatturers.' We understand by this, that Mr. C.
vrottl4l oppose any scale of duties avowedly and exclu
sively to protect certain interests, and we venture to
say. that Mr. CLAY would do the same. Indeed it
would be difficult to find a public man. that would
- come into Corigro - ss or before the people with such im
practicable opinions at this time of day. But Mr'Cal
boartdoesaotsaithatheis opposed to a TarillfOr RCO

prepared at this time to 'submit to a direct tax for the
support of. the general govermnent, which ;bey would

The Advocaats admits the difficulty of proving that
Mr. VAR Buttes differs from Mr. CLAY on this sub
ject, and assigns as a reason the non-committal policy
of that gentleman. We will not stop to vindicate Mr.
V. B. against this stale and silly charge—the very fact
that the federalists uniformly treat him as an enemy,
proves clearly enough that he is always committed a

notice. When Congress meets, the Advocate will dis-

not the less in earnest because it was made in the most

were soon destroyed. The fire then progress.ed down

caught sonic frame,, on the side of St. Peter street that

increase in force every moment. nothing could impede

This new steamer has .trained alreaav a reputation
for Apeed zreater than that of any ocean steamer in the
world. While in New York, it wa3 ,h , termined that a
trial of speed should take place with the Great West
ern, one of the finest steamers afloat, and the following
is a semi-official account of the result:
'Statement from notes taken by Ashbel Welsh, Esq.
and Franris B. Ogden, Esq., during a trial of
speed between the S. IVar Steamer Pyineeton,
and the British Steamer Great Western, October
19, 1843.
At 38 minutes past 2, P m., while the Princeton was
lying in the North River. the Great Western was se e n
passing the Battery under a full head o f steam, blow
ing, off strong, and with her fore and aft sails set; the
wind fresh from the lVestward. The Princeton im
mediately started her engine, gave chase axd coming
up astern of the Great Western soon passed her, with
no sails set and the yards square. The Weetern then
set up her square sails; the Princeton. following her ex
ample, made sail also, and continued to widen the gap
between the two vessels, When the Princeton had ar
rived at the Buoy of the Middle, below the Narrows,
she was more than a mile ahead oldie Great Western.
Here the latter ship Op make gOod the distance she
had losr,) took the 'Smack Channel," which is three
miles shorter than the ortliaary ship channel, which
the Princeton had followed before she was aware of the .
intention of the Great Western.
Notwithstanding the great distance which she had
r fosed over, she met the Western again at the Black
Buoy on the Outer Bar, and there passed under her
stern about two lengths distant,-then hauled up on a
line parallel to her; when coming abreast Capt. Stock
ton wished Capt. Hosken a plenseht passage, and the
crew of the Princeton_gtive the dren of the Great West
ern three cheers. The Princeton then passed - rapidly
ahead of the Great Western, in two minutes crossed
her bow, and hauled up for the capes of the Delaware.
- From the time that the Princeton passed Castle Gar
den till she finally left the Great \Ve•tern, was one
hour and fifty-ala minutes, during which time - she had
beaten her three miles.

The Princeton occupied one hour and thirty-one min
utes in going from Castle Galrden to Sandy Book Point,
a distance of more than twenty-one miles; thus showing
her speed to have been fourteen miles per hour, against
the flood tide, proving her to be the fastest see-going
steamer in the world.
The Great Western accomplished the distance to the
Bar in considerably -less time than she had ever done
before, having been well prepared for the occasion.
The Princeton had her full complement of vial in her
bunkers. As also the greater part of her water and
stores; and a quantity of coal on deck equal to the
weight of her armament. -
The Princeton tu rived at the Philadelphia Navy Yard
on Friday evening. Capt. Hosken, of the Creat West
ern, sent back a note to the pilot, in which he acknowl
edges that his vessel was fairly passed, at from one
half to three quarters of a mile per hour.
