0:) , The notice of a temperance meeting, in last
week's paper, made an impression on the minds of
some of our readers that the person who was to
deliver a Lecture was E. V. EVERHART, Esq.,
known as a strenuous advocate of temperance.—
This impression is erroneous. A certain ALEIAN.
TIER EVERETT, of the Trough Creek nation, is the
person who was expected to lecture, and it is his
name that is printed in the notice of the meeting.
The following is Mr. H. A. Wise's letter to the
Hanover (Va.) Committee appointed to make ar
rangements for the dinner given by the citizens of
that county to Mr. Clay.
WASUINOTO.V, June, 1840.
GENTLEMEN-I have delayed answaing yours of
the 19th ult. in order to make arrangements, if pos
sible, to accept its kind invitation to attend the din
ner in honor of Mr. Clay, by the citizens of his
native county, at Tayloraville, on the 27th ult.
I need not tell you what 1 think of that man,
Henry Clay, of Hanover. He has done for him
self what friends and fortunes can do for no man,
and what neither friends nor foes can take front him
—" a fame for which he himself has fought and
from which no man's censure can detract." And
that fame is his reward—Office could not add a
Cubit to his stature. He has reflected honor on the
place of his birth, and a Henry was borne there
before him he has maintained the reputation of
Virginia's sons, and Virginia is the mother of " he
roes, statesmen and sages." That is enough for
any man, and it is enough for you to claim hint as
your own—you honor yourselves in honoring Hen
ry Clay. None can impeach his disinterestedness
now, and I wish that all Virginia, all America,
could sec him, as you will see him, and hear him,
as you will hear him—a teacher, an experienced
teacher, of eternal political truths, and a witness of
facts for freedom against freedom's foes. Heed him,
I beseech you, heed him whilst you may.
HENRY A. WISE.
Correspondence of the N. Y. Evening Express.
Wssursoros, April 2, 1814.
Two gentlemen connected with the firm of AN
THONY, EDWAILDB &c., (247 Broadway, N. Y.)
are passing the winter here procuring large addi
tions to their " National Miniature Gallery," which
by the way is one of the most beautiful adaptations
of the " Daguerreotype." And we are constantly
reminded of its value by the passing learn the stage
of life of " Aminent Americans." I advise your
readers to neglect no opportunity of visiting this
" Gallery." It is open to all. Having seen the
beet specimens of the art in this country and in
Europe, I can bear testimony to the excellence of
the productions which have given these gentlemen
as distinguished a reputation in Now York, in this
District, and through the country. They have also
in preparation a magnificent engraving of the U.S.
Senate in session, which will rival the finest En
glish works of the same nature. Hitherto the Da
guerreotype has been too much confined to those,
whose solo object seems to be to make money ; and
I am happy to find those engaged in it, who are
able and determined to give it a true and permanent
position among the "Arta," not only as regards
their own productions, but in furnishing such in
formation and materials as can alone conduce to the
success of others.
The Daguerreotypes of the most distinguished
public men in the service of the country, which
have 'aeon taken by Messrs. A. & E., are one of the
first attractions of the Capital. Among them are
the Judges of the Supreme Court, the exTresident,
members of the Cabinet, and some of the most em
inent members of the two Houses of Congress.--
We have seen no specimens of this singular and
beautiful invention et all equaling the improvements
of the two gentlemen whose success we are happy
It is rather early to commence figuring out the
chances, but we find in the Wilmington Gazette,
(L. F.) a calculation, with remarks, which we copy:
4, Let us, in the next place, see what his chances
are in 1b44, against Mr. Van Buren, or any other
Democrat nominated by the National Convention.
On this table we are willing to venture a little.
For Von Buren. For Clay.
New York, 36 Kentucky, 12
Pennsylvania, 26 Massachusetts, 12
Virginia, . 17 Vermont, 6
Ohio, 23 Rhode Island, 4
Missouri, 7 Maryland, 8
Michigan, 5 Tennessee, 13
Arkansas, 3 55
New Hampshire, 6 Doubtful.
Alabama, 9 Georgia, 10
South Carolina, 9 Connecticut, 6
Mississippi, 6 North Carolina, 12
Indiana, 11 28
New Jersey, 7
" For liberality sake, we will give Mr. Clay, the
doubtful States, although we consider Georgia as
certain for Van Buren as New York, and he will
then have but 83 Electoral votes, or 109 less than
"Now, in the name of common sense, reason,
&c., what earthly chance does the " Great Embo-
dyment" stand for election? To suppose such a
thing, is to insult the good sense of the people, by
admitting it possible that they can change their
opinions' upon the most momentous questions, as
the cham elion changes its colors."
Now lot us look a little at the above. Almost
every municipal election in the State of New York,
has indicated great changes in favor of the Whigs
—enough to lead to a strong belief that she will
give thousands of majority for Clay.
Pennsylvania went against Van Bursts the last
time. She had largely increased her Whig vote.
Look to Allegheny District—look to the Thir
teeth District. Pennsylvania goes for Clay and
Virginia has not yet expressed herself; but with
the exception of the case of Mr. Tyler, she has
usually gone for her native sons.
Ohio is sure for Clay by 15,000 majority.
Missouri is full of promises. Wo venture not to
calculate on her yet, and we say nothing about Illi
nois, as our information is not recent.
Arkansas and New Hampshire we give up. •Ala
bama says she will go for Mr. Clay—doubtful.—
South Carolina is likely rather to throw away her
vote, than give it for Mr. Van Buren.
Mississippi is for Clay—so is Lousiana—so is
Indiana, New Jersey, and Maine. DELAWAIIE for
Van Buren!! Whew! Why the Locos would
not send delegates to the Baltimore Convention.—
The pure Locos in that State aro for Cass. There
is not a breeches pocket full of Van Buren men,
from Naiman's creek to Cape Henlopen.
So much for what are called sure Van Buren
The DOUBTFUL, as the Wilmington Gazette says,
may well be given to Mr. Clay. The table then
For Clay. For Van Buren.
New York, 36 Michigan, 5
Pennsylvania, 26 Arkansas, 3
Ohio, 23 New Hampshire, 6
Louisiana, 6 Three States, 14
Indiana, 11 Doubiful.
New Jersey, 7 Missouri, 7
Maine, 9 Virginia 17
Delaware, 3 Illinois, 9
Kentucky, 12 Alabama, 9
Massachusetts, 12 South Carolina, 9
Rhode Island, 4 Five States, 51
North Carolina, 12
Eighteen States, 210 •
Of twenty-six States, there seems to be three for
Van Buren, though it is by no means certain that
he will obtain the vote of Michigan. 138 votes
seem to be necessary to a choice. Now, if there is
any chance of Mar. Van Buren's carrying New
York, there is a still greater chance that Virginia
will go for Clay ; and a still greater chance that
South Carolina will do the same, or, at worse, will
throw away her vote. .
The Porter & Muhlenberg Coalition. '
Where aro the Impeachment Resolutions against
bAYeD R. PORTER, which hues R. SNOWDEN,
Speaker of the House, pledged himself before his
election, to introduce ? Are they quaseed by the
terms of the compromise between PORTER end
MUULENRERO, or has a nol. pros. been entered
against them ? Early in the session there was
loud talk about probing the Governor's iniquities to
the bottom—now there is not a word said on the
subject! Why this change I—what has come over
the "spirit of the dream 1" We should like to sco
the written contract on this subject—it would be
equal to that by which Buchanan made over the
Pennsylvania locofecos to Van Buren! To see
the sign manual of the Kickapoo Chief, promising
fealty to the tribe of Mohlenberg, on condition that
the tomahawk will be buried, the calumet smoked,
and nothing more said about certain "lumber"
frauds, "Indian talk," and "rafts," and granting
an amnesty to Brodhead, Solms, and the other
" speculators" of 1840 ! Whero can the contract
be seen? Who were the witnesses? Let us have
light concerniug the coalition between the Kickapoo
Chief and Muhlenberg. At all events, tell us where
the Impeachment Resolutions are? We are real) ,
anxious to see locofocoism redeem its promise and
expose Gov. Porter's plunderings.—Forum.
ANNEXATION—The Treaty Signed.
The National lntelligencer of Saturday
last says :
After some of_ our payer was made
up last evening, the Madisonian of yes
terday afternoon came to hand, containing
the subjoined official announcement that
the President had signed a Treaty for the
annexation of Texas; that is, a Treaty
entered into, on his own mere motion,
with a foreign Govarnment, for the incor
poration into this Union of a foreign ter•
ritnry as large as the entire kingdom of
France. Pt epared as the public has in
some degree been for this high-handed
measure, many honest citizens could not
credit that it would be persisted in ; and
now that the act is consummated, we can
not but contemplate with ainazenihnt an
assumption of authority so bold, and one
involving consequences so momentous.—
Rejoice, all ye hosts of speculators in
scrips and lands, and all ye adventurers,
whether of speculation or honor or infa
my;" but, thanks to the system of checks
and balances instituted by the framers of
the Government, your day of rejoicing, we
trust, will be brief, and the friends of
peace, and honor, and happiness of the
country be able in their turn to be glad.
From the Madisonian of Aplil 12.
it is understood that the Treaty of An •
nexation between the United States and
Texas was this day signed, and that it will
be submitted to the Senate for ratification
as soon as the accompanying documents
can be prepared.
We have pleasure in laying before our
readers the following correspondence, be
tween the delegation from the city of
Philadelphia to the late Whig Nomina
ting Convention at Harrisburg and Gen.
Joseph Markle, the gentleman nominated
by that Convention as the candidate for
the Gubernatorial chair. We have alrea•
dy presented our readers with General
M ark I e's letter of acceptance. We have
pleasure now in drawing their attention to
his opinions of State policy. They are
sound and true—such as becomes his pm
sition as a candidate—such as suit the
exigencies of the times :
PHILADELPHiA, March 10,1844.
Dear Sir : —We avail ourselves of the
first oppot tuni tv that has presented itself,
since your nomination by the Convention
at Harisburg, to ascertain, in such a form
as will put an end to any doubts that our
political adversaries may suggest, your
opinions on certain points of State policy,
in relation to which,greatand natural solic
itade is felt. Among them, or rather
above them all, is the question of the state
credit, involving the character of the eom
monwealth and the substantial interests of
all its citizens. On this point our imme
diate fellow citizens are deeply anxious.
Many, very many, are suffering around
us from the breach of the public faith; and
all are oppressed by a sense of shame,
that rests upon the community. You will
therefore Eixcuse us for the enquiry we
now make, and favor us with your views
on this interesting subject.
We are very rspectfully.
Your fellow citizens

General Markle's Reply
MILL tinovE, March 29,1844
Gentlemen:— Your letter of the 10th in
stant was not received until yesterday,
and I reply at the first moment of leisure.
I agree with you, that first in interest
and magnitude among the questions of
state policy, is that of state credit; the
comfort of many of our people, as well as
the honor of the state, and the very prin
ciple of republicanism, are directly invol
ved in it. I am led to believe that tie
want of good faith exhibited by some of
the States, has seriously retarded the pro
gress of liberal principles abroad, and giv
en their enemies en argument against re•
publican government itself.
Entertaining, these sentiments, I will
cheerfully concur, wether in public or pri
vate Isle, in any measure which wili tend
to do justice to the public creditor and re •
' store the tat wished honor of our good old
Commonwealth. In this respect I do not
profess to be singular. My business and
associations through life have been prin
cipally with the f int.; and laboring clas'..
ses and I think I under-tend their pecu•
liar views and interests. I therefore
speak from experience, when I say that no
of citixens will contribute more fully, ac
cording to their mes ns, to the public rev
enue; or will endure more than they to
sustain the hotter of their country. It
must not be supposed that if in some por•
lions of the interior the taxes have been
collected less promptly than in others,
that there is a want of disposition to pay.
There is a real distress and scarcity of
money in some of the agricultural districts
of the State which none can appreciate
except those who have witnessed and ex
periancedthetn. I have therefore, at no
time,lost confidence in the ultimate redein
tion of the State credit. That this may
be done speedily all right minded persons
will earnestly desire. No man can long
remain in a position which his concience
does not approve without having his mor
al sense blunted and his self-respect les
sened; and the consequence in this case
will not be different because the faith and
obligation broken are those oldie State.
ccannot doubt that the collection of
taxes sufficient to pay the interest on the
Slate debt, would impose great and real
distress on the people. To make them
as light as possible, the most rigid econo
my in the administration of the State Gov
ernment should be enforced—not it, name
simply, but in fact. The example of our
sister State of Ohio should b? followed in
reduction of all salaries to the lowest prac•
ticable and just standard. Neither the ,
character nor interest of the State will suf
fer, when salaries shall be reduced so low,
that when the public servant shall retire
from office, he will have accumulated little
more than the honor confered by the con
fidence and favor of his country. lam
well satisfied, that while hundreds may
have been lost by exirayigant salaries,
thousands have been squa , .dred by favor
itism in jobs and contracts. No doubt, in
the nature of things. much difficulty will
be found iii arranging aei equitable and fair
distributions of the burdens among all
classes of the people, and all sections uf
the State. But though difficult, it is not
impossible; and when once done, I cannot
doubt that it will be cheerfully acquiesced
But in these difficulties there is one
source of relief, to which I cannot discover
why all true Pensylvaiiians should not re
sort promptly and zealously. Why,
when the State is overwhelmed with debt,
and the people compelled to choose be-.
tween severe taxation or dishonor on one
side, and the acceptance of a large fund,
justly due from the general Government,
on the other, any one should prefer the
first is to me a subject of surprise and re
gret. The application of the proceeds of
the sales of the puplic lands to thegeneral
Government, lessens the amount to be
collected by duties on foreign goods, and
thus affords an excuse for reducing or re
pealing the tariff. But it is not stair appli
cation of the fund; it is not a Pennsylvania
argument or measure. Pennsylvania
should cling to the destribution act as a
measure of state relief and of sound nation
al policy. Yours very respectfully.

Cr'SUDDEN DEATH, APOPLEXY, BURST
ING OF VESSELS, &c.—Wright's Indian Ve
getable Pills are certain to prevent the at
hose dreadful consequences, because they
purge from the body those morbid humors
which, when &win in the general circu
lation, are the cause of a determination or
rush of blood to the head, a pressure upon
the brain, and other dreadful results.—
From two to six of said Indian Vegetable
Pills, taken every night, on going to bed,
will in a short time so completely cleanse
the body from every thing that is opposed
to health that sudden death, apoplexy,
bursting of blood vessels, or tndeed any inal
ady, will be in :1 manner impossible.
Wright's Vegetable Indian Pills also aid
and improve digeston, and purify the blood
and therefore give health and vigor to the
whole frame, as well as drive disease of
every name from the body.
Beware of Counterfeits.—The public are
cautioned against the many spurious medi
cines which in order to deceive are made
in outward appearance, closely to resem
ble the above wonderful Pills.
OBSERVE.—Purchase only of the adver
tised agents, or at the office of the Gener
al Depot, No. 169 Race street, Philadel

Indian Vegetable VMS.

CARD.—A combination having been
formed by a portion of the Dealers in Boots
and Shoes of this city, with the avowed ob
ject of suppressing the sale of those goods
by auction ' it seems proper far the subscri
ber,(who has held these sales for the past'
eigteen months) to state that notwithstand
ing this combination,, the sales will not be
stopped, but on the contrary, as he will now
rely more than ever on thepatronage of the.
country Merchants, the sales will be held
every Tuesday morning,at the auction store,
208 Market Street, and his arrangements
with the Manufacturers, both of this city
and all New England. are such as to insure
him a constant and full supply of every de
scription of goods.
The mere fact of so great an effort being
made to put down these sales, is the best
evidence the country Merchants can have,
thai it is for his interest to sustain them.
