Oh still you may spy, un the battlements high, The banner of • Forty' still streaming; And close by its side, in its glory and pride, Another, with victory gleaming! And see how it flashes ! when o'er the breeze dashes Its front to the sun, 'The Mill Boy of the Slashes!' And beam as a motto inscribed on its crest : Hurrah for Brave flurry, the Pride of the West! And hark! from the mountains! and list! from the plain, And e'en from the dark swelling ocean— Ten thousands repeat it, in thunders again— And loudly proclaim their devotion, For him, whom the nation have named for the station Of chief, at the Washington Inauguration! Then up with the Banner, that hears on its crest: Hurrah far Brave Hurry, the Pride of the West! And widely, and proudly, that banner shall wave., Since the voice of the people proclaims it ; And could our brave chieftain now low in his grave, But waken to life he would name it. For oft did he say, that in all our army The star which shone brightest ; was brave Harry Clay ; Then this be our motto, our watchword, our crest, Hurrah! for Bravo Harry, the Pridoof the West! Philadelphia, January 27, 1844. From the Cincinnati Gazette, Gentlemen—Having noticed in some of the Eas tern papers o paragraph stating that President Tyler had written a letter to Louis Philippe, congratula ting him on the marriage of the Prince de Joinville, I send you a supposed copy of the letter, to use as you think best. As I sometimes indulge in framing "Hoosker's Nests," &c., please excuse me. Congratuktitary_lipistle To Louis Philippe, On the Marriage of the Prince De J—, by a high Functionary of the United States. Illustrious Sovereign of the Collie nation! My best respects to you and to your Spouse; Accept this letter of congratulation, Embracing all the members of your House; And to the Prince my special salutation, With choicest blemings on his Princess' brows; May their connubial joys be showered thick us— At least as many as our cousin Vie has. No doubt you hear of me across the ocean, By each arrival Visiting your strand; I've kept the public in a brisk commotion, Since I succeeded to supreme command; And often I have had a halfway notion, To step across" and take you by the hand; I long to meet you as a friend and brother, And face to face congratulate each other. The cares of Empire mingle with the pleasures, Lilco acid in the sweet concocted cup; They give a zest which methy fondly treasures, A kind of pungent relish as we sup; But tho' at times I'm thwarted in ray measures, I'll use the factious opposition up, And live in future song and future story, The founder of a noble nation't, glory. Long may your royal line secure soccer:don, Nor lack a Prince to till your ancient throne! I too have sons I fain would give possession, To reap (when I am gone) the fruits I've sown ; I But Wiley serpents watch my bold progression, Of whom I truly dread but one alone; The Ashland Chief I fear will prove the victor, Among the reptiles he's the Boa C'anstrictor ! Alas! I cm but envy your condition, Enthroned for tits—your subjects good and true; Whilst I maintain a critical position, Which often makes mo feel It little blue;" But wishing all our enemies perdition, I haste to bid your Macesty adieu, Believe me biro, both orally sad mentally, Your roost obedient servant, ....ccittentagy.

Hunt and Mr. Andrew Miller, at the Universalist Church, in Callowhill street, on Monday evening, (the 22d ult.,) was by no means equal to the expectations of the audience. Mr. Miller evidently came un prepared to defend the traffic in ardent spirits against the attacks of so able a champion of the Temperance Cause as Mr. Hunt, and the strength of the latter and the true merits of the question at issue were, therefore, but imperfectly developed.— Mr. Hunt occupied the first fifteen minutes in sta ting the conditions and object of the debate, and in making the preliminary demonstrations. He said that he esteemed Mr. Miller es a gentleman, and would, therefore, strictly and cheerfully conform to the agreement between them to refrain from all personalities ; that ho would confine his remarks solely to the liquor selling business, and would en- t (leaver to show, conclusively and satisfactorily, that I it ought to be made a penal offence. Why, said he, is any act of man punishable by law 1 Because it is found to be destructive to the best interests of I society, and, in self-defence, that society becomes not only justified in forbidding, but is bound to sup prose it by punishing those who commit it. This, I presume, my friend Miller will admit, and we may, therefore, assume the point as granted. Well, then, let us see whether the business of liquor selling, ns a beverage in health, may not be included in this rule, and whether it ought not, for reasons assigned, to be made a penal offence. I think I can show that there is no offence now made penal, which is more destructive to human interests, prosperity and happi- ness than that, and I will compare it, for the purpose of showing this, with any crime my friend Miller , may name. Mr. Hunt here turned to Mr. Miller and asked hies to 113111 C any offence for this comparison. (Mr. Miller shook his head, and Mr. Hunt resumed.) Ho declines naming any. I will, therefore, take counterfeiting for the argument. Counterfeiting is , made puni,hable as an offence, because it is injurious to the interests of society. But how does it effect those interests? Its injury extends only to property. The moral constitution, the intelligence, the the soul of society remain untouched. If the coun terfeiter imps', upon me, he injures me to the ex tent of property taken from me by a false bill—but no more. He still leaves me my character; he still leaves my mind unimpaired by his acts, my health unbrolion ; and with these, and well-directed indus try, I can soon repair the mischief he has done. But . not so with the liquor seller. He not only takes away the property of Hs victim without giving him an equivalent, but ho takes away his means of support ; destroys his reason, hie health and character, and brings ruin and misery, upon his family. The proof of this eSsertion is to be found in your prisons and your almshouses, and is familiar to thousands. I have seen it in the tears, I have heard it in the groans of wives, mothers and children, and I have received it in the confessions of the victims of the traffic themselves. I have risked the inmates of the poor house and the prison, "What brought you here, the counterfeiter or the rum-seller?" and although some have replied the former, and others have assigned different causes, the meat masses have answered, the . 6 rum-seller I" Mr. Hunt concluded his first fifteen minutes by observing—what follows then, if it is proved that the traffic in liquor ss u beverage in health is equally or more destructive to the beet inter ests of society than counterfeiting? Why, society is boundlo put a stop to it, and it ought to be mado a penal offence. Mr. Miter replied. Ile ,aid that he felt greatly embarrassed in the position ho occupied, as it was new to him, and if he should not succeed in defend ing a business in which he had been honestly cage ged for a series of years, he hoped the audience would pardcn the fault while they attributed it to bins, and not to tine business. I never attended a tem peranbe meeting until a few :eights ago, said he, but having heard that the advocates of the crime tank especial pains to abuse those engaged in the busi ness of selling liquor, I felt it My duty to hear, and endeavor to. answer the charges brought against them. I noel not trouble the audience by stating how I came to this discussion, and only desire that if I Lhould, when warmed by it, say any thing re proachful to the., temperance came, or disrespectful to my opponent, that it may be overlooked, us it veil be wholly accidental and trot designed. Mr. Miller proceeded to state that Mr. Hunt had, as ho conceived, departed from the traffic in liquor, had gone on to thew the the evils of drinking to ex cess. The traffic in liqor, ho said, was a business which had been immemorially followed without re proach, and which had boon protected by legislation ciory .lvilized community. Liquors are used in a thousand useful ways, as auxiliaries to chemistry and the arts, and it was, in his opinion, equally un just to charge the makers and sellers with the vices of those who drink them to C.COS3, as to fasten the iniquity of counterfeiting upon the manufacturers and venders of paper. 'rho tendency of such an ar gument would be to show that because religious fa nuticism sometimes make inen mad, that religion itself was an evil and ought to be suppressed. The same might he said of many other useful institutions and occupations; but enough has been suggested to show the weakness of the brother's position, and I shall, therefore, pause for a stronger attack. Mr. Hunt resumed. My friend Miller, said he, has endeavored to show, that I have wandered front Ate question, but let me respectfully recall to his mind the circumstances out of which this discussion grow, end I know ho will admit that I am right.— At the meeting held in the Court House last Thurs day night, ho replied to a speech of Brother Cham bers, in defence of the liquor business. After the meeting I told him in a friendly way I should like to have a public interview with him on the subject, and that I would widertako to show that the traffic in liquors was more injurious to society than any offence in the catalogue of crimes. He assented, and WO are here to-night in pursuance of the agree meat then made. What is, then, the subject of discussion? Is it the influence of liquor as used by the chemist or in the arts? No—it is its influence upon society, tired as a beverage in health! And when we spoke of the traffic in liquor, wo referred to its effects as temperance men regarded them. But I will adopt the gentleman's own views, if he insist upon it, and will prove to this audience, and to him, too, that the traffic is productive of snore mischief than good to society ; that its direct and legitimate tendency is destructive to the beet interests of socie- ty ; that it may be abolished without producing as much injury as its existence now does, and that it ought, therefore, to be put a stop to, by snaking it ; a penal offence said by punishing those w*.o engage ,in it. Mr. Hunt then proceeded to the support of his possition, by showing the evils of the traffic; comparing them with its good and beneficial effects, and representing the former to be greatly dispropor tioned in magnitude and importance to the latter.— i Ho aleo compared the traffic with robbery, and without making the slightest personal allusions ar geed that robbery produced less mischief to society ; than the traffic. Ho concluded, by saying that if any man would prove to him that religion had a • , direct and legitimate tendency to produce insanity ; that it caused more injury to society than good, and i seller of the pistols was responsible for the use might be dispensed with without evil results, he made of them. But he forgets to tell the whole would urge its suppression as warmly as ho did that story. I remember well that the individual wbd of the liquor business. I bought the pistols had not the nerve to use them as Mr. Miller replied. He said that his opponent he did until stimulated leads crime by three &n es had put a qualification to the question which he of brandy ! Again, he states that the temperance did not think quite fair, and had wandered further reformation is going backwards, because twice as from the iesue than ho was disposed to follow.— much revenue was derived front the granting of He repeated that the tendency of the brother's argil- i licences in 1813 as in 1842 but here again he meet was to abolish all useful employments: and omits to tell us that there were from twelve to fifs institutions, because they were abused, and to return i teen hundred tippling-houses in 1842 which patio to a state of mini-barbarism.

Now, said Mr. Miller, the temperance advocate, are proceeding in the mine mode, and instead of taking away the appetite for ardent spirits, ahem Mom w•Ito deal in them, end ask goveinment to make the traffic penal. What has been the result? decreasing intemperance they have it:emu:RA it, as the records of the county - willtill.w. In 184% the amount paid into dm Counly Treasury fur tavern licences was liaic over $15,000. In 1813, ❑nd while the tern- mance movement was going, ow with all its vigor, the amount of revenue derived from the same source was rising $lO,OOO. This increase of revenue proves an increase in the sale and consumption of liquors, and shows that the temperance reform is directed to the wrong end of the evil. Mr. Miller again recurred to hi 3 argument in reference to cell- gious fanaticism, the madness awl bloodshed and sacrifices at the stake it had caused, and repeated his question, whether any reasonable man would ask that these evils should be removed by suppress ing all religion as their cause. He concluded that equal tyranny and injustice would fellow from ma king the traffic in liquors an offence, and asserted that government had no right to prescribe what a man should cat, drink, or wear, to suit the whims and caprices of any class of reformers. Mr. Mont rejoined.—He said he thanked the gen. demon for his reference to M'Culleek's Dictionary. He fully agreed with the preamble to the act of par !lament there quoted. The only ground of objec ion he saw to the law was that it did not go to tho oot of the evil; it did not foi bid the making cud selling of rum, except to the poor. It countenanced and tolerated intemperance among the rich, and woo therefore equally censurable and nugatory. llut the gentleman says it would be tyrannical to ray what a man shall drink. He forgets that his license• laws, these evidences of the "wisdom of legislators" which he praises fur their "antiquity," do say what a mall shall not drink or at least how much of err tain beverage they shall drink. If a mall get, drunk, isn't he fined? Alt, ha'. (Laughter.) He has told us that the aborigines of thiseountry were free from the vices of intemperance until the whites in troduced whiskey among them.

Mr. Miller followed in reply, but he evidently labored under disadvantage, and appeared to be conscious that he had yielded Ids point in giving an adlrmative to Mr. Hunt's in genious question. He referred to M'Culloch's Dic tionary to show that great severities had been Ie• sorted to for the suppression of the manufacture and ! solo of ardadt spirits under the act quoted, and that twelve hundred persons had been sentenced to im prioonnient and transportation, in two years, for violating its provisions. All, he said, proved of no n's iho vice of drunkenness increased, in despite of the law, as the appetite for liquor remained, and was enhanced by the difficulty of gratifying it. The debate closed as it had begun, in goad humor.— Both speakers came back to the premises front which they started, and the audience, which was numerous and intelligent, dispersed in pretty much the same mood and mind in which they had assembled; cx- cepting, perhaps, ono Mr. Brown, who interrupted Mr. Hunt with an impertinent remark, and was in vited out. The reporter has attempted to give noth ing more than an outline of the debate. There were some very good remarks upon the evils of re ligious fanaticism from both gentlemen, but as tho reporter took no.notes, he will not venture upon so delicate a topic, lest he sho,tld unwittingly ascribe tenets to the speakers which they do not hold, by giving their remarks m language different from that used on the occasion.
