The Democrats Guess Who the Whigs Will Run

Political Cock-Fighters


Mr. Clay. — The following worthy tribute from an opponent is from the Democratic Review: —

“There is no serious question as to the Whig candidate. It is to be CLAY— CLAY, with an enthusiasm of personal feeling which we envy him the honor of having awakened in his friends and his party, far more than we should that of the office itself, with which they are so earnestly bent to adorn and reward the closing years of his long political life.

Clay then can alone be the man; and the indications are apparent enough, as indeed it could no be doubted, that the rally and struggle to be made for him will equal, if not surpass, in vehemence and in lavish profusion of means, the before unparalleled efforts of 1840.”
