Once more at our country's call,
We're here this night to rally,
From cottage low and stately hall,
From mountain top and valley.
Come east, come west,
Come strive your beat;
Oh ! freemen do not tarry,
But strike the blow, your foes o'erthroW,
And shout for gallant Harry!
And shout for gallant Harry !
But strike the blow, your foes o'erthroir,
And shout for gallant Harry,
When doubt and gloom o'erspread the land,
And coward hearts have trembled,
Who was it foremost took his stand,
And never yet dissembled.

Come boldly forth,
And strike for Clay and glory,
For this lto'lt stand the test of time,
And live in noblest story !

For this he'll stand the test of time,
And live in noblest story.
Then pass his homed name around,
Till echos catch your thunder,
The universal glad rebound,
Shall make the Tories wonder!

Brave boy s no longer tarry,
But stand by him who never quail%
Our true and gallant Harry,
Our true and gallant Harry,
But stand by him who never (lured
Our true and gallant Harry.
There's not a lass in this broad land.
Tliniartvh - o cion't give heart and hand,
To glorious, gallant Harry !
Come east, come west,
Como all the rest,
'Tis ours the day to carry,
And once again our foes o'erthrow,
Led on by gallant Harry.
Then here's a health to Harry's cause,
Let not the wild notes tarry,
Thy noble name our heart's blood warm,
Thrice great and gallant Harry,
We'll strive our best,
And know no rest,
Till we tho ship shall carry,
And all our foes o'ereome or won,
Subdued by gallant Harry,
Subdued by gallant Harry,
And all our foes o'ercome or won,
Subdued by gallant ] harry.
Our Western Hope—our hope of all,
Through us shall not miscarry,
For now we're pledged to rise or fall,
With noble, gallant Harry I
Come o'er the plains,
Through sun or in ruins,
We'll not AGAIN miscarry!

From traitors and treason our councils to free,
We'll stand by gallant Harry.

and Vice President of the United tastes, and that

Resolved, That we respond to the nomination of
Gen. JOSEPH MARKLE for the office of Gov
ernor of this Commonwealth ; that he is a condi ,
date in whom we recognize an honest and industri

stained with official bribes—a man who never de
sired or sought office—a soldier who has "done
the state some service, and they know it"—one
Who, as a public man and a private citizen, will al

Reso'lved, That we believe it to be the imperative
duty of the Government to encourage and foster
the industry of our own citizens, whether Farmers,
Manufacturers or Mechanics, and therefore we ad
vocate a PROTECTIVE TAfin-r- the Whig
Tariff of 1542—which infuses plenty, prosperity
and happiness into the country.
Resolved, That we demand the Distribution of
the Proceeds of the Public Domain, because it of
right belongs to the People, and, if obtained, will
enable us to pay the interest of our State debts and
relieve us from the burdensome taxes that aro now
weighing us down.
Resolved, That we most heartily rejoice in the
defeat of the infamous British Tariff Dill introdu
ced into Congress by our opponents to destroy our
Domestic Industry.
Resolved, That we are opposed to John Tyler's
favorite bantling, THE ANNEXATION OP TIIE UNI
TED STATES co TEXAS, per se, and that we recom
mend that "His Accidence," and Isis party slope
for Texas at once, and let James K. Polk and Loco-
focoism go on unmolested in tho Grand Larceny of
Resolved, That the Leedom party are in favor
of the repeal of the Tariff of 1842, as the votes of
their representatives in Congress fully prove; that
they only want power to consummate their pur
pose; and that daises K. Por.x, their new leader ,
is an open and avowed enemy of the PROTECTIVE
POLICY, and in favor of the IIEYEAL or TIE
WIIIG TARIFF OF 1842, and lire advocate of
FREE TRADE, as his speeches abundantly man
, Vest.
Resolved, That Grosses M. DALLAS, who has
been nominated to play second fiddle to his junior,
James K. Polk, in the Locofuco farce, is a man of
vascillating principles—ono day for and the next
day against a National Bank—and of such wild,
radical and destructive notions that the People will
never honor him with the office of Vice President
of the United States.

anxiouc to rid themselves.

hold it as the best evidence that they do not believe
their own slanders—that they make such things

Resolved, That the charge that Mr. Clay is a
duelist comes with a bad grace from a party who once
boasted of the firmness of the old Roman, who
when ho sent the fatal bullet through Major Dick
inson said with coolness, 44 stand and take it Weep
Resolved, That, the 'White Slavery falsehood as
told by the Locos, about Mr. Clay, carries with it
its own contradiction—for if Mr. Clay was in favor
of White Slavery, he would join their ranks; sure
that the "knee crooking knaves," would serve him
as they do their present masters,
ReBoketl, That the inducements for the annexa
tion of Texts, though they May be powerful and
mighty arc light when opposed in the scale of rea

sought to distinguish themselves since the establish
ment of their right to tho claim of a place in the
great family of nations.
Resolved, That it would be far more to the honor
of the United States to assume the debts of the
Bankrupt States, than those of Texas, as it is the
duty of nations as well us individuals to be just be

4 'A Yankee among the AittUers."
The Yankees, as I said before, are apt to be too

at this very spot, that I entered my horse Swab."
for a purse of two thousand dollars. He hadjvon
a like sum the year before with all case. In short
ho was tiro best horse at that time in all Carolina.

dec Baker, to the astonishment of all, intimated a
wish to enter his horse along with the rest.
Your horse I .' exclaimed what, that sleepy
looking critter there ? You'd hotter cuter him for
the turkey buzzards.' _
<Not's you know out, Mister,' returned the Yon-
kce, with some show of spirit. <To be sure the
critter looks rather sleepy as he stands, and on
that account I call him Sleepy David ; but he's a
jo•fired smart horse for all that. He's like a singed
cat, a darned sight better than he looks. I should
like taruation well to try him agile somc of you:
South Carolina horses. To be sure I didn't come
all the way front house on purpose; but as I was
coming out this way with a load of tin and other
notions, I thought I might time in so as to kill
two birds with one stone—for, thinks Ito myself, if
I can win the purse and peddle of my notions at
the same time, I shall snake a plaguy good speck.
But I had to hurry on like the station, to get here
in season—and that's ono !Cason my horse looks so
kind of shabby and out of kilter this morning:
'But for all that he'll perform like day's work I
tell you.'
Supposing ho had no idea of running his horse,
and that all he had said was merely to gratify his
propensity for talking, I bade him to be gone, and
not trouble mo with his Yankee palaver.
< Why, Mister,' said he, this is a free country
and a man has a right to talk or let it alone, jest as
he can 'and. Now I've taken a good deal of
pains to get hero this morning, in order to run
Sleepy David ogin' some of your Southern !torso.
I ain't a joking, I am in airnest. I understand
there is a purse of two thousand dollars and I should
like amazingly to pick it up.'
You talk about picking up a purse of two thou

gain furless than a regular sum, he engaged to
give it, Providing ho could find any one to loan him
the money ; for which he offered to pawn his wa
gon load of notions and Sleepy David to hoot,—
He asked one, then another to accommodate him
with the loan, declaring that as soon as ever he
took the purse, the money should ho returned, and
would give a dozen tin whistles into the bargain.—
He,. however, got 'mom kicks than coppers,' until
some wag, who had plenty of cash, and liked to
see the sport go on, lent him the two hundred dol
lars out of sheer malice ; though, as it afterwards
turned out, the Yankee bad money enough about
him, and merely playing the possum all the
while. •
His next object was to borroW a saddle. Here he
wns also accommodated ; and then taking Sleepy
David from his cart, ho scrambled upon his back,

Others, who wanted to see the sport though it
should cost some broken bones, encouraged him to
proceed—saying, as they laughed aloud, that they
had no doubt he would carry off the purse.
. That's what I mean to do exclaimed ho,—' I
hoist come hero for nothing, I can tell you, wake
' up Sleepy David, and look about you--you must have
your eyes open to-day. It's no time to be snoezhe
when thero's money at stake.'
Tho horse, as if he understood what his master
was saying, opened his eyes, pricked up his ears,
and actually showed some signs of life.
signal was given to start. Away sprang
the Southern horses, leaving Sleepy David far in
the rear, and the pedler verging from side to side as
if ho wag just ready to toll off. The horse went paw
ing, along with his tail clinging close to his haunches
and his nose stuck out straight before hint ; and you
never beheld so queer a figure cut by any man and
i horse as this singular pair made.
But they improved as they proceeded--the pea
k-r sat more jockey-like, and the horse evidently
gained on the others.
_ . . . .
It was now thought that the Yankee had got
enough of the race, and would withdraw before
the riext heat. all expectations how
ever, ho persevered, and even offered to bet a
thousand dollars on the issue of the race.
'The fellow's a fool,' said one.
'He don't know which side his bread is butter
ed,' said anotheryor else he would'ut risk any
more money on so desperate a stake.'
He's safo enough there,' said a third, 44 for
he has no money to risk.'
Here, however, every body was mistaken again
for the pedler hauled out an old greasy pocket
book and planked, the thousand dollars; it was I
covered of course. Dut I confess I now began to
be staggered ; and to suspect the Yankee was af.
to all more knavo than fool. I had no fears,
however fur the purse. Southron was not a
horse to be distanced in one day, and especially by
such a miserable looking animal as Sleepy David.
The second heat was now commenced—and, if
I had before felt confident in the entire superiority
or my noble horse Southron, that confidence was
strengthened, as I again saw him coming ahead of
the rest, I considered the purse now as my own
property. In imagination I had grasped it, and
was about putting it safely in my pocket, when—lo,
and behold ! the petite r's horse, which was behind
all the rest, suddenly shut forward, as if the deal
kicked him on the end, and stretched his neck
like a crane, won the heat by a head.
Every body was astonished. "That horse
must be old Scratch himself,' said one. 4 At least,
he has an evil genius to back him,' said a third,—
I was sure he would play you some Yankee trick
before he got through.' Such were the observa
tions that passed front mouth to mouth.
The Yankee in the mean time, offered to plank
another $ 1000; but noboby would take the bet.—
And it was well they didn't for at the third heat
Sleepy David not only distanced every horse, but
even came in a quarter of a mile ahead of S,outhron
There, by gouty !' said the Yankee as he dis
mounted, "I'll take that are Icetle purse if you
please, and the tether cool thousand I knew well
enough that poor Southern horse. couldn't hold a
candle to Sleepy David.'
Twenty-ninth of February.
This day is an extraordinary day, a day which
returns again only in four years. We could enter
into historical details on the snbject of leap-year
established by Julius Clesar, nearly nineteen cen
turies ago, and make a long chronicle about it.—
But we shall only say that for a woman who makes
pretensions to youthfulness, it is a precious advan
tage to be born on the 29th of February. There
are in the Parisian world many wonderful person-
ages born on that day, who profit by the favorable
to grow old but one year in four; they never reck
on a year more except upon the anniversary of their
jirth•day. It is true, however, that many other
Women count in the same way without being born
on the 29th of February.
This day gives rise Witten) , mistakes, and strange
incidents. The last story, we know on this subject,
happened beiween one or our dandies, who lounges
most- elegantly at the opera, and a capitalist, fasted
for his exhorbitant usuries.
The dandy wanted to borrow money, the capi
talist wanted to lend it: the affair was quickly con
You will . give me your noM,' said the capitalist
opening his portfolio.
Willingly,' replied the dandy. 'lt is agreed
that you aro to lot me have ono thousand crowns.
We fix the expiration of the note to one year; I
will give you my note for three thousand francs.'
You must add the interest.'
That is no more than fair.'
' For you cannot supposo I will lend money
OF course not.'
Money is so scarce theso times ! So add tho
interest to the capital.
How much will that make ?'
4 A thousand crowns fora year would amount to

say so, and there the :nil& will end ;' continued the
capitalist shutting up his port folio.
No, no! I will do so,' replied the dandy hastily,
Well then, draw the note.'
What day of the month have we ?'
The capitalist looked at his journal and said

late the snare into which his crowns had fallen.—
lie wished to reclaim them; he asked for a second
edition of the note, reviewed and corrected, but his
request was derided.

ed the dandy ; and thanks to your happy error, your
conscience may lie at rest, for you have, by this
mistake, lent your money, at ten per cent, which,
for a loan like you, is at a virtuous rate.'

A Pleasing Incident.
The papers have teemed with accounts of the
spirited proceedings in Baltimore, on the 2nd of
May last; and all that could be mid of the enthu
siasm and beauty manifested in Baltimore * street,
has been uttered. Never, in this" country, was
there such a display. Hut we are happy to state,
that the enthusiasm of the ladies was nut exhausted
on that day, nor was it confined to Baltimore street,
the great artery of the city, along which the pro.
cession moved. But whenever and wherever ata
opportunity presented, there were exhibitions of
continued sympathy in the objects of the Convene
lion, and of encouraging approval of the conduct
of the delegates,
On Friday morning, the ears left the depot in the
western part of Pratt street, with about five hun
dred passengers r and these wero detained nearly an
hour in a /ewer part of the city, where the engines
were attached to the care, and then the movement
was recommenced. This brought to the windows,
doors and gates, old and young, rich and poor, rids
tress and servant. From the upper windows beam
' ed forth smiles of beauty, and white handkerchiefs
were waved by pearly hands. Heads nodded time
to the Clay bands of music in the ears, and boquets
were thrown towards the retiring visiters. At the
first door the housewife, who had hastened tram
her breakfast, held a child by one hand and waved
a napkin with the other. At the gate, the servant
had thrust forth her hand and lent her approval to
the scene, while the curbstone was lined with boys
and girls, whose screams of joy and rejoicing were
as sharp upon the ear as an octave flute. In another
section a diffirent class had been drawn to the door
—a matron, swinging aloft a part of the dress of
her child. Her next door neighbor had come to
the door empty handed; she looked round for some
thing expressive of her feelings, and seizing her
apron she gave a flourish of approval. Her next
neighbor was no less patriotic in feeling, but was
still more scantily supplied with the means of ex
pressing her feelings. She had no handkerchief at
hand, and she looked down for her apron, but evert
that was missing; so ehe took what conic next to
hand and flourished away at a great ra.

finished. Here the widows, doors, and side walks
were lined. While cries of hurah for Clay and
Frclinghuysen,' were sent up front the curbstone,
waving handkerchiefs and smiles marked the widows
Here the ears paused a few minutee, as it was found
dfficult to overcome the high grade with such a
load, and we all had a better chance of looking out
upon the people. Wo noticed in one small but
neatly finished house, that no ono occupied either
the lower windows or the door, and we thought it
probable that a loco-foco lived there. At length
we saw a handsome young woman hastening to
the window to wave her handkerchief. She was
suddenly intercepted by a young man who shoved
her back. Just then a middle aged lady was seen
running to open the front door, to awing her hand
, kerchief. The young man snatched the handker
chief from her, and shoved her back. Meantime the
young woman was coining forward again, but she
was again stopped by the youth. And this was
repeated a great many times, to the great delight of
the passengers in ono of the cars in front of the house.
At leught the young women sprang to the window;
the young man was not quick enough to prevent
