Mr. B. then attempted to refute the objection urged
public sympath y and contributi ha on of private aid, were
an improper and unbecoming interference with the in
ternal affairs of' another nation, and a violation of the
s pirit of international law. In justification he quoted
front Rollin several instances in ancient history . , and re
ferred to the universal custom of modern nations. In
F.ngland and in France, public meetings were held,
public sympathy loudly expressed, and pecuniary nid
liberally contributed. in aid of Polaml and Grcere, in
their r espective stritg.cles against their oppressors. In-
deed from the very shores of England, rushed armed 1,
volunteers. when Lord Cochran raised the stand Ird of i

chit of Egypt and his master the Sultan.
But in whatever aspect it may be viewed by the na
tions of Europe, there can be no doubt as to the senti
ments of America. The groat doctrine of human lib
erty—the rights of man—is expressed so clearly, and
enforced so strongly in the "Declaration of Indepen
dence," that he can be no true American whose heart
does not prompt a warm and cordial response. The
very Congress that proclaimed that immortal instru
ment, adopted addresses to the people of France and
'lreland, invoking their sympathy and aid in behalf of
American freedom; and we all know how readily and
,enthusiastically that call was answered. On this sub
ject—the right of the American people to sympathise
with the oppressed and to denounce the oppressor—
the greatest and wisest of our Statesmen have clearly
and emphatically expressed their opinions. You have
the authority of Jackson and Clay, of Buchanan d
Tyler, of Johnson rind Van Buren, of GOV. Se ward, of
New York, Gov. Huyne, of S rad' Carolina, Gov- Por
ter, of Pennsylvania. and of many other scarce less il
lustrious names. Contest sech men with the con-' I
temptible demagogues, who, nanble properly to aPPre- I
state the liberty they possess themselves, are unwilling
to aid in the extension of its blessings to others.
Mr. B. said it would heunnecessery for hum to urge
upon Irishmen the peculiar claims their native country
had upon their exertions. The history Of the long past
as blended with their own personal experience, and the
scones of atrocities. too black for the page of history
—which tradition alone preserves—have doubtless
been gazed on by themselves with eyes too hot for tears.
Could they, on this occasion, be insensible to her
wrongs orindifferent to her sufferings, they would de
serve a doom worse than the Helot's degradation.—
No! he knew they would respond with prompt alacrity,
and overflowing enthusiasm.
It had been remarked by some superficial observer,
that the Irish were not deserving of freedom, because
they appeared on all occasions gay and che erful,: and
consequently inferring that they were insensible to their
own and their country's wrongs. But those who tho't I
so, little understood neither theirhistory or their char—
actee—the battle field. the scaffold and the dungeon ,
attest both the depth and sincerity of their devotion to I I
their country. A poet, who well understood the hu
heart, has conveyed some idea of their character 1
in that respect, in the following beautiful lines.
"They are not dried, those tears unshed,
But flow hack to their fountain head,
And resting in their spring more pure,
Forever in its depths endure,
Unseen, unwept, hut uncongealed,
But cherished most, when least revealed."
Great enthusiasm prevailed during the delivery of I
Mr. Barker remarks, and he was repeatedly inter
rupted" by loud and continued cheers. ,
G. W. LAYNO, Esq. was then called for, who res
ponded in a very eloquent address, which, we regret
we have not space for at present. Mr. L. said that
persons had sought to dissuade him from exerting him
self in the cause, alleging that it was a mere Catholic I
question. He said he was brought up in the princi
ples of the Protestant faith, which he had always en
rained and professed, and as a Protestant he scorned,
from the heights of liberty, to look with a sectarian eye
on the rights of his fellowmen. It was no Catholic,
no sectarian questiont—it Was a question of human
freedom, of human rights. NIT. L. continued to address
the meeting for nearly half an hour, and concluded a
mid the lend applause of the meeting.

On motion of Capt. James May, the following named
POLITECAL TUXORS.—Every party is cursed. vrith a 1
class of beings who profess to be attached to its prin.
ciples, but whose sole object appears. to be to create
discord in the party, and to destroy the reputation of
all who loathe and despise the conduct of stela sneak
ing libellers. Many of these pests of parties fancy
that they are capable of writing for the public press.
and they consequently annoy the printers with the oilf
sprint of their stupid brains, which they wish to in-
. _
ilia upon the commuaity.
The subjects onwblclt these political loafers employ
their talents are, of course, not such as will either im
prove orb., approved by a correct public taste, nor co i n
they be of any service to their party. Their subjects
are generally slander and misrepresentation of all who
have had the independence to denounce the pimps and
panders of malignant *factions, and if they succeed in
putting toget'ie.r half a column of the vilest personal
abuse, embodying the calumnies of unprincipled dem
agogues, and tibald abuse of the ruffians with whom
they associate, they have written, what they consider,
a "strong article," but what the decent portion of the
community will regard as the vulgar malice of &sneak
ing slanderer, too cowardly to avow the authorship of
of his low abuse, and COQ low in public estimation to
receive any credence with honorable men if known.
These creatures are incapable of having any differ- .
epee of opinion with their neighbors withnut making it
apersonal quarrel, and to gratify their malignant feel
ings they will not hesitate to violate the most sacred
principles of social intercourse with their fellows.—
They consider a difference in party policy a sufficient
ground for personal abuse, and those who differ with
them in these matters may be sure to find such of their
private affairs as may be known to these "strong wri
ters" laid before the public, embellished with all the
vile misrepresentations and commeuts that such crea
tures can invent. No recollection of former personal
or political frietulship, into which they wormed them
selves when theirirue characters were unknown, can
withhold them front theit natural inclination tedefame,
and, if in their power, to destroy those who dare to re
buke their baseness. Previous kindness and favors
but make them the more ferocious,and nothing appears
to give them greater satisfactiou than to calumniate
those who have treated their faults and failings with
forbearance. It is to be regretted that editure ever
permit such men to make their columns the medium
for pouring forth their low abuse, but when permis
sion is granted, the names of the slanderers should al
vrays be given, so that the community can judge of the
propriety of the persons who undertake to condemn
the conduct of their fellows.
We have had many applications from these puliti-
- -
cal tumors to admit their anonymous abuse into nor co- '
lumns, hut where we knew the attacks to be unmerited.
we have rejected them or required the proper names
of the writers to be attached to the articleo. By pur
suing such a course we have incurred the displeasure of
many of them: A refusal to be responsible for their
personal abuse they considered a want of independ
ence, and we hare, from this cause, (to our great sat
' isfaction) lost thefriendship and svpport (! ) of many
of them.
T -str rt; wri:ori" are not prcaliar to anyone
party; they are the pests of all, and most of the politi
cal rancor and personal quarrels that occur in political
contests originates with them. The evils which follow
the meddling of these persons ran only be checked by
the press taking n firm stand, and either to reject their
calumnies orrthen they are permitted to assail their
fellow citizens to ic in under th-ir proper names.
THE PRESIDENT'S MEssi.ox.—lt will be seen by
the following "interesting correspondence," that one
of our cotemporaries has come to the determi
to heat all his neighbors with the next Message,
provided the foreman of the Madisonian will steal a
copy of the document fur him before it is delivered in
Congress. To get an advantage over all the other
offices by giving a person $2O, fur co mmitting a larceny,
may be a very honorable way of showing his smart- '
1 neve but if he will keep his promise not to issue the
stolen Message, until two or three hours after the re

many will object to his enterprize, as every other office
in the city can have it set up and printed in that time.
We would like to know who Mr. is. that is to be
engaged to frank the purloined Message, as we would
represent to him that such a course would be unfait

considered very creditable by his fellow citizens.

DEAR SIR: I had the honor of receivint , the ac

some good. It will, at least, deter others from mak
ing alike proposal.

by Mike Walsh, accusing Mr. Forrest of refusing aid

The slander was r epublished in many of the eastern pa

Mrs. Leggett it will be sena that the story is a base
falsehood, as would be readily supposed by nn person
who knows any thing of the generous nature of the

We learn form the Adrian, (Mich.) Watchtower,
that the citizens along the line of the road below Bliss
field, assembled by general invitation, one day this
week, tore up about fifteen yards of the track, built fen

as we are informed s:,wed the same in wheat. The

being brought through from this place to Toledo on a

Dustuno to THE Sourn.—Two persons fought a
duel near the swamp on Monday last. They will not
be immortalized by having their names published as
heroes and men of honor. The day is gone by when
a man could strut by with a certain notoriety, and be
gamed on as the lien of the day, bettause he bad been
engaged in "an affair of honor," (as it is called in con
ventional parlance,) or had, perhaps, murdered (for
that is the proper term) his fellow man. These mat

considered by all right thinking men.

to be 12 to 15 feet in thick: ess.
