Mr. Clay's Prospects.
04rThe following article is taken from
the Literary Subaltern, a Strong Clay pa
per, published at Providence,„Rbode Island.
The prospects of Mr. Clay are exhibited
in no very favorable light :
"Fifteen years of the little period of life
that has been allayed us, we have devoted
ourselves ,to the interest of Henry Clay,
with a sincerity and devotion that have had
- rio bounds, and which have never wavered
amid-the-vicissitudes of the times or amid
the storms and the tempests that have howl
ed around us. Certain of the great merit
of Mr. Clay,—worshipping the evidence of
the genius that he has displayed, and honor
ing the independence and the lustre of the
man, we- had hoped, that a grateful people
would do justice to his transcendant merits
and the superiority of his mind ; and that
hope - has induced us to persevere in the
cause of Henry Clay; and we have mareh
ed onward, suffering loss of time and the lit.
tle ekolument that would have attended
our toils, had they been devoted to some
other political aspirant. Our course has
-been-onward; we have toiled and tugged,
and tugged and toiled away the better peri
od of our life, and our only reward has been
the loss of money—the accumulation of
foes, and the neglect and contumely of po
litical demigods. But all this would not
dishearten us, if we could only behold the
glimmering of a prospect before us, favor
able to Henry Clay .as a candidate for the
-Presbiency.----But wa behold nothing in hia
favor. That he can array a goodly number
of personal friends, is a fact that cannot be
doubted; but of what avail is that,if he can
not rally a - party? What are his prospects?
If the election were to take place to day, he
might probably secure the vote of Massa
chusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut;
but he would loose Maine, New Hampshire,
and'lrermont. This would be his fate in
New England? What would he do in the
West? He might possibly secure the vote
of Louisiana,—but Mississippi, Alabama,
itoßti, Indiana, Illinois and Kermicky, he
itroidd most certainly loose, - whilst - it islos:
sibhr, that he might gain Ohio, Maryland,
and Delaware ! And of what avail would
all this afford him, when it is well known,
that he cannot even hope for any support
in Virginia, New York or Pennsylvania !
Asti not the times dark and gloomy in the
eztreme I What possible chance is •there
ler Henry Clay ?
At the next canvass of the electoral col.
kkges of the states, who can say, in antici
pation that Mr. Clay will gain Rhode Island,
Massachusetts or Connecticut ? The knti.
masonic party,—one of the most flourishing
parties that ever existed in this country, has
avowed its determination not to support Mr.
Clay; and, it is next to a mortal certainty,
that ere the arrival of November 1832, Anti
masonry will have a MAJORITY, and an
ovxawirmatixo iNPLumwu in all New Eng
Ther Anti-toasons have 'avowed they will
net support, or give countenance to any man
who adheres to the Masonic order, they
have issued their edicts to the world, and
they Will ~be maintained and carried into
complete and full execution. Mr. Clay is
a Me s on of the highest order, and it ie pre
sumed he will not adjure a society to which
he has been attached from early period
of fife, till the approximation of old age.—
He amid, without being suspected of sin
ister and selfish motives, secede ; if ho does
secede, the Anti masons will not trust him,
thellasons will as arena ter of course
distrust'him, and forever aba him. Un
.e tie existence of cireumeLn es like these
Mr. Cray, as a lima of elevated feelings and
as-ti than of honor, owes 4, to himself and
his friends, to his countryPnd - to the repose
of those who by the ties of personal and po
filial friendship, to retire from ihe field of
action; and assume a place in'the councils of
the nation, where he , can wield the mighty
influence o s eloquence and become again
the c of the interests of the„,people.
Placing his condition in the most 'favora
ble aspect, it is barely possible that he can
be returned a candidate to the House of
Representatives—an event winch all his
friends would , deplere, since it is the hope
and prayer of the public that no man shall
be elevated to the Presidency; without he
reaches the poet of honor, by the voice of
tho.people—and where is the man among
thous:* sincere and devout admirers of
Henry Clay, who could or would. hope to .
• one him elevated to office, through bargain,
Laths and corruption? • ,
Wale balloons of Mr,- clay's prospects,
more than ordinary proof—'its mel

lion, - Wi l iP Webster, the Hon. Richard
Rush, and .the Hon. John Quincy Adams,
as we have proof to show, have said within
the little period ofa month, "Mr. Clay has
soft*. remotest chance for success. We
