LETTER FROM MAJOR JONES.
PrivzviL., July 15, 1844.
To Col. Hanleiter
Dean Sin—l owe you an apology for not wri
tin to you before now, but the fact is I've had a
monstrous sight of botherments to prevent—the
baby's been sick, and the craps been in the grass,
and the niggers has all had the measels, which has
kep me in a perfect flustration all the time. But
I've got things pretty considerable strata now, and
I'm glad to inform you that we is all well and
thrivin, and hope you is enjoyin the same blessin.
I wanted to go to the Baltimore Convention to
nominate Mr. Clay, but Mary and old Miss Stallions
tuck on so about it, and was so afraid some of the
steamboats mought bust their idlers and spill me
in the sea, that I staid home just to burner 'em ;
and ever sense, seein how things was gwine on
slick and smooth, I'ze sort o' drapt out of politics
and tended to the plantation. But I can't stand
it no longer—l feel I would be no better nor a tory
to my country if I was to stand idle now, and do
nothing to help to put down the treacherous ras
cals that is tryin to destroy the government; and
sense! have hoed all the grass out of my crap and
laid it by, I'm jest gwine to turn in and help to hoe
Lokyfokypokyism out of Georgia by the roots,
and never stop till we lay the good old State by I I
next November, safe and sound for Henry Clay!
I never did have much opinion of these big demo
crat leaders that was tryin to make divisions
among the different classes of people in the coun
try—always tryin to Oct the pore agin the rich, and
the planters agin the manyfactures, and the South
agin the North, and even the unreligous agin the
religious people. I never did believe they was
what they pretended to be, but I always thought
they was friends to their country, though they
tuck a monstrous pore way of showin it. I thought
they wanted office, and was tryin to fool the peo
ple into yotin for 'em, but I never begun to think
they was mean enough to try to bust up the Union
if they could'nt have their own way. But now I
see into 'em, bomination take their infernal pictere,
and Igo for squashin 'em into the yearth bowda
ciously, so they can't never raise their heads as a
party in this country agin.
They certainly must think the people's got no
more sense than they has honesty, or they would'nt
dare totry to bamboozle 'ens in the way they do.—
A little while ago, they told the people Mitt the
worst thing they had agin the Whigs was the
bomination Tariff as they called it—now they is
rennin a ring -tail stub-and-twist tariff man from
Pennsylvany for Vice President. A little while
ago, the worst feature in the bomination whig tar
iff was "discrimination" and "reasonable pro
tection," and they cussed Mr. Clay for that like he
was a pirate, and swore all "protection" was
"legalized robbery and plunder," and now their
candidate for President sea in his letter to Mr. Kane,
that Inc goes in for "discriminating duties and
reasonable protection to our home industry."
A little while ago Mr. Martin Van Buren was
the greatest men livin, after Gen. Jackson, and "the
integrity of their principles" demanded that ho
should he elected again—and now lie's so platen
mean that salt would'nt save him, and they
would'nt vote for him not for no consideration.
A little vvhilo ago, they would'nt touch Texas
with a forty-foot-pole—it would be unconstitu
tional and dishonorable to go into annexation
then—but now its the only hope of salvation,
and they're determined to have it if they have
to steal it. A little while ago, they was all union
men, and was gwine to hang Mr. Calhoun "as
high as Haman" cause Ire wanted to nullify—now
some of them aro for Texas and disunion, and the
balance for Texas any how. A little while ego,
they was agin division of the public lands and
assumption of the debts of the States—now
they is for making the government pay the debts
of Texas and dividin out the land in a lottery.
A little while ago, they had more principles than
you could shake a stick at—now they ell preach
from only one text, and that is "Polk and Texas
The truth of the birmess is just this—they saw
the people was gwine to throw 'am in the next election
like they did in 1840, and they tried every wa y
they could in the last Congress to pump up some
new capital—some new duet to throw in the peo
ples eyes—they tried General Jackson's fine and
every thing else they dared to touch, but they burnt
their fingers with the Tariff, and they was afraid to
raise the ghost of the Bank, so they had just to
steal old Tylers thunder, and make the most they
could ofit. But mind I toll you, its gwine to blow
'ern all to everlastin smash before they're done with
it. That annexation question come wheelin into
the political sky, all of a sudden, like some than
dering'comet with a fiery tail, and its jest gwine to
serve the democratic party like a taller-candle does
a sketer-hawk, when ho dabs into the blaze like a
tarnal fool without knowing what he's about—it'll
swinge 'em into a perfect cracklin. The people of
this country has got too much sense to *give this
glorious Union away for Texas—and they're not
soon gwine to forget nor forgive the men that has
got no more patriotism in 'em than to want us to
wash out the cementing blood of our fathers with
the blood of our brothers in a civil war.
There's ono thing certain, they can't como no
sich game over ue wire gram boy.. The price of
cotton is low enough now in Georgia, and we've
got no notion of bein taxed and drafted to keep up
a war with Mexico or any body else, jest to make
the speculator's titles to their Texas lands good, so
that more of it may be sold and planted, and more
cotton be made to make the price still lower.--
We haint got no objection to the annexation of
Texas when it can be done honorably and fairly, if
wo can be satisfied that it would be better for both
countries, but we've got no notion of this way of
marryin in haste and repentin at leisure." Its
no picayune speculation—there's a good many
afterclaps in the 'bisness, and we'd like to "see
about it" a little, before we go into it too deep.—
But what makes nue madder than any thing else,
is, to see these great Lokyfokyspokys tryin to skeer
the country into ther measures. Drat ther infernal
picters, do they spore we're afraid of Great Britian
or General Bumsquattle of South Carolina, or the
free niggers, or any body else I Not by a jug full—
Texas is close to us—she is kin to us in her gov
enument and her people, and wo wish lace well—
but if her citizens is got no more of our spunk in
'em than to go and be subjects of a British Queen,
why, drat their mean skins, let 'em go—they ain't
fit to be Americans. But if they stand up to ther
rack agin Mexico as they have done and ought to
do, and wait till things can be done decently, why
then we will do the clean thing by 'em, and let
Texas init., the Union, if we can agree, or treat her
as a sister republic if we can't. Whatever we do,
we don't ax no favors of nobody, and if England
goes to meddle in our family affairs, or tries to git
any power over Texas that she hunt any basness to
have, we'll mighty SOOll show lace whom bee-gum
she's foolin with. And as for General Bumsquat
tle I don't regard him no moro'n I would a seed
tick in a water-million patch. If he could git ell
I his nullification heroes together, hemought make a
terrible racket with his drummin and fifin, like
they did tether time when they was gwine to tear
up heaven and yearth bout the tariff and sheered
so many old wimmin in Charleston into the high
stories—but if he does go to kickin up any rumpus,
I'll order out Pineville Battallion with double bar
relled shot guns and duck shot cartridges, and if I
come across hie three thousand men with arms in
their hands I'll make 'em drap 'em monstrous
quick, and cut out for Texas like rabits from a
woods afire. Just let General Bumsquattle try to
bust up this union if he thinks best—that's all I've
got to say to him. But Fan w.tiu too much time
with sick small potaters.
We're all strait as a coon's leg down here. The
boys is ell hurra for Mr. Clay, and sense they've
found out Polk is to be the lokyfoky candidate they've
tuck rich a dislike to the yarb that they wont let a
stalk of it grow on their plantations, for fear the
people mought think they was Polk men. Old
Nippers was bout tire only lokyfoky in the settle
ment. He's been crowin about Van Bureau and
Free Trade like a house-afire till last Monday when
he first heard of the nomination. .Polk, Polk,'
sea Ire, r Who's Polk?' Some of the boys told him
he was the chap what Jimmy Jones of Tennessee
beat so bad for Governor last year. Old Nippers
hant opened his tread bout politics ever sense. If
Polk docent flourish no better any where else in
Georgia than it does down here, it wont take many
figera to count the berries next fall, We're all
comm to your big Convention—l never did see
rich a stir—every one feels as if the destiny of the
country was at stake this time—even the wirnmin's
got their dander up sense they heard about old
Bumsquattle's gwino to bust up the 'union. You
may jest lay off a ten acre lot to hold the Pinesville
delegation when we git to Madison. No more from
Your friend, tit deth,
P. need in your paper lather day what.
Pardon Jones sea if I'll come out and use my influ
ence in favor of the annexation of Texas,he'll give
me an office sich as Secretary of State, Postmaster
or something. Now, I wish you would jest tell
Pardon Jones that I ain't no Lokyfoky to be bought
up with an office, or I could've sold out to the ad
ministration long ago. John Jones what edits the
Madisonian, has been claitnin kin with mo and
hintin round bout my runn in with Mr. Tyler for the
Vice Presidency ever sense the Convention. But
it ain't no go. I would'nt exchange the glorious
satisfaction of givin my vote next November for the
great and patriotic Harry of the West, not foe all
the honors of John Tyler and all the cabinets he's
had sense the honest one, left him by Gen. Hard
son, quit his treacherous councils. Them's my
sentiments, Pardon Jones!
Lotter from Mr. Clay on Smiling.
The following letter from Mr. Clay, on Duelling,
is in answer to a long, ill-digested, and not very re
spectful letter, from certain individuals in Westmore
land county, drawn up by a very eccentric, though
doubtless well-meaning man, Mr. Wm. Campbell.
After reading Mr. Campbell's long-winded and un
courteoua epistle, the :nest of which is an argument
upon duelling, directed against Mr. Clay himself,
one cannot but admire the courtesy and good -tem
per of his reply, as follows :
ASRLANT, August I, 1844.
Gentlemen :—I duly received your letter of the
15th ultimo, on the subject of duelling, and I ap
preciate fully the friendly, pious and patriotic mo
tives which prompted you to address it to me. Per-
Mcions as the practice undoubtedly is, I hope you
will excuse me when I any that there are other
questions in our public Milani of much higher and
of more general importance. The victims, or vota
ries of that practice are but few in number, and
bear no comparison with the immense number of
sufferers from the rejection of wise measures of
national policy, or the adoption of those of an op
I expressed, in strong terms of condemnation my
opinion against duelling in a letter which I address
ed to my constituents, in March, 1824, which is to
he found in the published collection of my speeches.
Again, within a few years past,l gave evidence of my
strong disapprobation of it, by voting, in the Senate,
of the U. States, for the bill for suppressing duell
ing in the District of Columbia.
With these proofs of my sentiments, I think,
gentlemen you ought to be satisfied. But you ask
the whether, if I were challenged to fight a duel, I
would reject the invitation? Considering my age,
which is now past 67, I feel that I should expose
myself to ridicule if I were to proclaim whether I
would or would not fight a duel. It is certainly
ono of the most unlikely events that can possibly
be imagined, and I cannot conceive a case in which
I should be provoked or tempted to go to the field
of combat. But, as I cannot foresee all the contin
gences which may possibly arise, in the short rem
nant of my life, and for the reason which I have
already stated, of avoiding any exposure of myself
to ridicule, I cannot reconcile it to my sense of pro
priety to make a declaration one way or the other.
You have, gentlemen, done me some, but not full
justice, in respect to the affair of the lamented Cil
ley, When I fast obtained any knowledge of his
difficulty with Mr. Graves, I did not think that there
was the smallest occasion fora combat between them.
I believed, from the first, that the matter would be
amicably accommodated, and to that end all my ex
ertions were directed. I did not know that it was
not accommodated until the day when, and after the
parties went out to light. On that day I was con
fined to my room, by illness, and it was altogether
accidental, that I obtained information that the par
ties had gone out. But I was neither informed as
to the plan, or the hour of tbeir meeting. Contra
ry to the impression which you entertain, I did ad
, vise the employment of the police to arrest the par
ties and prevent the duel. The constables accord
ingly went out in search of them, but like myself,
being ignorant of the time and place of their meet
ing, they mistook their route, and failed in the ac
complishment of the object. If you would read
attentively the whole my correspondence with Mr.
Wise, to which you have referred, you will find that
it sustains the preceding statement.
I am gentlemen, with great respect,
Your friend and obedient servant,
Messrs. Alexander Plumer, Williams Campbell, Eli
Cope, John Darr, Joseph Darr, Bela Smith, An
ne Smith, Eli IL McCelland, Robert Cunning
ham, James Finely, John Boyd, M. P. Smith,

A TRANSP,RENCY-highly appropriale.—The
Greene County Democrat says : On a hickory pole,
somewhere about these diggins may be seen, on
dark nights, a transparency, plainly painted, and
quite tastefully lighted up, with the following in
scriptions—which we have varied not a whit, ex
cept by a little change in the spacing and this every
printer will justify:
There it hangs, and there it shines! If the
frosts of November don't make it appear just so
—Pooh Pour and SILLY DALLAS, then there is no
meaning in the Cigna of the times. Poor Polk will
be frost-bitten, and Dallas will feet more silly than
he did when the delegates from the Baltimore Con
vention called him down stairs, and surrounded him
in his night clothes.
