.MVeelaneos. ' Carrespoadecc of die Charlensto CouFSr. \VASINOTOr. Jan. 22. Mr. Calhoun's letter to the MereUry da ted January 7th,,4isclaiming all aspira tions to the Presidency, and complaining of the misrepresetation of his views atnd objects in. that respect, appears in 6ur city papers to-day. and alfords evident relief knd gratification to some of the friends of tbe-administration. He more than inti mates that the hints which have appeared from time to time, on this subject, came from a sou'ic. unfriendly to him; and it is very certain that the administration prints have always discouraged the idea that he intended, under any circtimstaces. to be a candidate for the Presidency. So,. that matter is at rest.. We have runiors that some of the Southern States, which witl neither support Mr. Van Buren nor Gen. Harrison, will start a new candidate.

THE DEATH OF JEFFERSON. BY T. H. SHIVERS, M. D. I have done for my country, and all man kind, all that I could do, and now I resign my soul, without fear, to my God; and my daughter to my country. [Jeferson's Dying Words. The eloquent tongue is mute, The eagle eye is dim; He hears not thy salute What is this world to him? For though an earthquake rent The mighty earth in twain, And shook the firmament He would not wake again! All that was earthly, lies Low in his grave beneath! His heavenly part defies The mightiness of Death! Then let the thunders roll, The mighty cannons roar They cannot reach his soul Upon that happy shore! All that he wished below From mortal man, was given What earth could not bestow' Is granted him in heaven. For fed by FREEDOM's hand, He grew, from infancy, The mightiest of the land His cradle LIBERTY. The sunshine on the plains. The cattle on the hills; The heart that now complains, The bosom that now thrills, The joyous things of earth, The moon, the noon, ...
