The Volunteer given its readers very little
credit for intelligence, when it attempts to palm
upon them such assertions as the above for
truth. Who is there of the old gray-haired
democracy of Cumberland county^that has
ever heArd of HENRY CLAY as anything else
than the Father of the American System'
and the. advocate or PrbteCtion, from _the
earlieskppriod of his hfe.down to the present
day? They feel. their it morel sense"
insulted by such imputations of stupidity and
ignorance as the above paragraph conveys.
But the Volunteer does not seem to-address
its readers as though they possessed common
sense or common honesty—if it was neces-,
asity - for a party purpose to endeavor to prove
white-to be -black,,or` black to be white r the
Volunteer would enter. tmon the inlgurnent
with as mush-cool-impudence as it utters the
Henry Clay's opinions are a 'matter of his
tory—they cannot be belied. That he ori
ginated the Coinpromise Act we do not pre
tend to deny:' That heprofesaed his belief in
the correctness of its principles eve do not
deny. But what has this to do with the Ta
riff of 18423_ Mr-Clay, it is well 'known;
retired from the Senate about the first of
April, 1842. hi about a month or two months
after that the present Tariff law was passed
by the *Big majority of that Congress. This
law, - then=4lhis Tariff of - 1842—was the true
issue before the people of the United States-
When Henry Clay and JameslC. Polk were .
brought forward as opposing Presidential
candidates, the people desired , to know their
opinions and views of the Tariff of 1842.=
This was the question—not whether they
were in favor of a Tariff, or what kind .of a
Tififf, - 6iii - Whether they were in favor of the
Tariff of . 1134 i, There was particular solici
tude on this subject in Pennsylvania.. The
people of this county, and the readers of the
Volunteer, very' well know that a large and
respectable.demoetatic Meeting in Dickinson
township; appointed a committee to address
letters to both Ali.. .Clay and Mi. Polk, asking
each of Them aistinctly whetfier they were in
fivor of the Tariff of 1842, wit/wiWany refer
enceio their previous opinions. Here is Henry
Cidy's "frank and honest answer:
ASHLAND, 9th September, 1844
GENTIMMEN—I this day received 'your fet
ter addressing two enquiries to me—;" Ist.
Are you in favor of the Tariff 'Act of 1842"4
and " 2d. Would you, if elected, support
that act as it is , without modification, •or
would you in favor of modifying it?"
have so•pften, gentlemen, expressed my
opinion in favor of the Tariff ofiB4g, that the
only, regret 1 feel is that you should deem it
at all.necessary to request any renewed ex
pression of it. Nevertheless, I take pleasure
in complying with your request, in saying
that I am of opinion that the operation of the
Tariff of 1842 has been eminently salutary ;
'that I am decidedly opposed to Its repeal; that
I should regard las repeal as a great national
calamity; and that I am unaware of the no.
cessity of any modification of it. lam there
fore opposed alike to its repeal or modifico
4ion. A 4ixed and stable polieris what the
country now most needs, and I sincerely
hope that the Tariff of 1842 may. be main
tained, and thus afford a security .for that de
sideratum. lam respectfully,
. Your obedient servant,
Messrs. Miller, Lynch, Donaldson, Moore;
Sellers; Blyler ; Prnyder, Peffer and Myers.
But where is James IC Polk's answer? We
cannot give it—he never wrote any—he
played mum Yes, and notwithstanding this,
the American volunteer still continued to
publish the gross' and lyingimpoeiure "that
James K. Polk was 'a better Tariff man than •
Henri Clay !" In this 4y were the people
hood-winked, betrayed and sold to the "na
bob; of the South." . Now they know' whe
ther Polk is a Tariff man, but they have come
to Their senses too late, we lea. If James
K. Polk had been an honest man he would
have stopped. this deception. if the locoloco
party leaders had been honest, they would
have stopped it.' P t ut honesty did not serve
the purpose ellimolormiam at that time, and
now thepeople-must.bear the cerisequences.
But will the people believe such liars again,
to their own - destruction ? • •

referred to the effect of the annexation of
Texas in enabling the South to carry:her free

would do it in the Senate,
Here is a design on the part of the Admin

MSxico of territory•enough to give the South
the preponderance over the North forever,

perpetuation of free .trade- —of crippling the
_labor, enterprise and energies of the people
of the North—that she may play into the
hands of• the British manufactiver—British
ship-owner—British merchant, and British
capitalist. Let the North understand the game;
and let her be warned to look to herown in

of men who are plotting her ruin, and who

day when active operations could be begun
in the prosecution-'of the war with Mexico.
"Oliver Oldsohool" in Wedifesdayle edition
of the U. S. Gazette, says;
"I am informed that the instructions given
to Gen. Taylor,,as to the conduct of the war

in which he will have to operate, of strategy,

is, I do not know;,but it is supposed that to
Gen. Scott muck of their merit is due, espec
ially that portion relating to•the plan or the
campaign, strategy, obstacles &a. It is a
greed upon all hands that for military sci

.Alriend has sent to us an extra - et from the
speech of the Hon. John M. Clayton, of Det
aware, made at the great Whig Meeting in
Lancaster, in 1844. Wei have here the far
seeing, the fore-tellirig,:and the majestic lan
guage, of one of the greater prophets of the
patty and the time. It is full of the spirit of
devoted patriotism, and shows the broad hor
izon of a lofty statesman. Asa piece of nom_
position, it is admirable for its strength and
beauty of expression; as the forceful utterance
of patriotic devotion, it has scarcely a paral

itShould the struggle tor . national indepen
dence, which is now raging throughout. the
length and breadth of the land, be decided a
gainst us by the vote of Pennsylvania, she
will come out of that contest with her gor
geous_ bawler trailling in the dustherself
bleeding at every pore. The shouts of par y
triumph will be speedily succeeded by the
wail of her ruined plOtighmen, and her beg
gared workshops. The fire of her forges,
and the Bound of the axe and hammer in
her-workshops,. will die away amidst the ac
clamations of her fatal victory; and there may
be many among the .thousanda before me,
who, with sorrow stricken, if 'not with brok
en, hearts, may* live. to ' learn the loss of that
without which public liberty would cease to
be a bleaifing.—But let me, add, should-:the
spirit of indepeedence be discarded from the
breast orall other ttnuiricans, it will still lin
ger in the .heart of ,that.gallant little State,
which as , she was the first to adopt the Amer

its truepiinciples.—and if_ that spirit shall be
"gnally doomed to expire,, there, even there,
amidst my native _oaks and pines, it will
breathe ire last sigh on the bosom of its last
friend." " '
