It was probably issued late in the presidential campaign of 1832, after Jackson's July veto of the bill to re-charter the Bank. (Weitenkampf tentatively dated the print 1833, but the Library's impression was deposited for copyright on September 12, 1832.) Jackson is portrayed as a cat (with a tail marked "Veto") defending the corn cribs in "Uncle Sam's Barn" from rats "which had burrow'd through the floor, to get at his capital Corn Crib: While Uncle Sam, and his active laborers, stand at the door, enjoying the sport." The cat has one rat in his mouth, possibly Henry Clay, who says, "My case is desperate." Under his paws is another (possibly the Bank's president Nicholas Biddle) who says, "Them d'd Clay-Bank Rats brought me to this." In the lower left a rat with a cape and his paw on a Bible says, "My Cloak does not cover me, as well as I could wish, but this Book with it, will be a good passport to the Corn Crib." Other rats creeping from holes in the floor say, "I'l keep in my hole while he's in sight" and "No chance for me whie he's in the Barn." At the upper right two rats (possibly influential pro-Bank newspaper editors James Watson Webb and Charles King) nibble corn, remarking, "The U.S. Bank Rats are very liberal to us Editor Rats, we must stick to them at all risks." From an open doorway three men, "Uncle Sam and his active laborers," survey the scene. First man: "Bravo my Boys! keep him in the Barn; and no doubt, but he will keep the Rats away." Second: "What a tail he carries! I guess he is of the Kilkenny breed." Third: "How he nicks them." The use of rats to symbolize corruption was commonplace in cartoons of the 1830s, particularly with respect to the Bank of the United States. See ""This is the house that Jack built"" (no. 1833-6). For their use in another context see ".00001. The value of a unit ..." and "The Rats Leaving a Falling House" (nos. 1831-1 and 1831-2)11ocn145505419art18990.10Chamberlain, Joshua LawrenceKing, Charles, 1789-186711ocn070982692mix1.00Lafayette, Marie Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert Du MotierMarie Joseph Paul Yves Roch Gilbert Du Motier, marquis de Lafayette, papersHistoryRecords and correspondenceCorrespondence, legal documents, clippings, broadsides, orderly book, photographs, and other papers relating chiefly to Lafayette's military service in Canada and Virginia, his tour of the United States (1824-1825), his land in Florida, and his views on such topics as the slave trade and the French government. Also includes material pertaining to the centennial observance of his death.

The vote brought about not only the defeat of Tammany Hall candidate John J. Morgan and Equal Rights party ("Loco Foco") nominee David R. Jacques for mayor, but the loss of the Common Council to the Whigs as well. At right the Indian brave Tammany, his breast pierced by an arrow, and his wife, portrayed as a crude Irish woman, fall under the weight of a ballot box. Several prominent Democrats scatter in alarm under a rain of "Whig tickets." Among the Democrats is federal District Attorney William M. Price (standing facing left), whose coattails are grasped by a fallen man. Alexander Ming, Jr., and Elijah F. Purdy flee to the right. Copies of two Democratic newspapers, the "Times" and "Plain Dealer," lie on the ground. Tammany: "Farewell to all my greatness. This last blow has settled me! My dear Loco Foco, stretch out your arms to me; I die!" His wife: "Arrah be me soul Ould Tammany, your faithful Loco Foco will die wid you! I'm knockt all to smidereens!" Fallen man : "Help me up Price, I'm a gone chicken." Price: "Let go my skirts, you little premonitory." Ming: "Run Eli, the jig's up." Purdy: "Aye! Aye! Ming, the Devil take the hindmost!" On the left are triumphant representatives of the Whig press, including "Courier and Enquirer" editor James Watson Webb, who has just unleashed the arrow which has struck Tammany in the heart, and Charles King (holding sword), editor of the "New York American." James Gordon Bennett, the cross-eyed editor of the "New York Herald," falls under Webb's feet. A man with a fireman's hat and horn urges the group on. Behind him is Mordecai Manuel Noah, editor of the "New York Star," wielding a pike. He is followed by men representing the New York "Gazette" and "Express." Fireman: "Huzza! onward, we'll bang Slamm and the rest of them this time." King: "Keep together and the victory is ours." Bennett: ""Murder! Big Whiskers! Save me! I'm the Ladies favorite. Hoxie! Lovely Emmeline!! Squint Eye! Oh!!"11ocn122394162mix1815Gracie, ArchibaldHistoryThis volume opens with pages of poetry, including a transcription of Francis Scott Key's "In Defence of America". The bulk of the manuscript is devoted to recounting Gracie's journey to his native Scotland and England, commencing on September 1, 1815. The travel account offers a description of historic sites, hotels, people met, theater, and scenery. Comments about his daughter, Eliza, and her husband, Charles King, and their children are also present11ocn144670539art19840.10King, Charles, seventh president of Columbia College11ocn299947512visu18341.00Old Nick's new patent plan to make Nova Scotia Tories, Federals coodies, Hartford conventioners, Nullifiers, National Republican bankites & cAn attack on Nicholas Biddle and the New York newspaper editors friendly to the United States Bank. The print was evidently prompted by Biddle's 1834 attempt to create a financial crisis through an artificial tightening of credit. Biddle created the shortage as a ploy to swing public support toward the United States Bank, then under attack by the Jackson administration. Whig editors James Watson Webb, Mordecai Manuel Noah, and a third (possibly Charles King, identified here as "Charley") are portrayed as Biddle's accomplices in an unsuccessful attempt to crush the common men of New York. As Biddle (far right), Jack Downing, and a third man (with monocle) watch from the steps of the Bank as the three editors operate giant screw presses (a pun on "printing presses") which bear down upon crowds of working men, or "workies." The latter include carmen, sailors, masons, laborers, butchers, and others. Webb, standing on the press at right, tips his hat and exhorts his colleagues, "Major [Noah] and Charley let us give those workies a good screwing so as to fetch them to the Bank question, then I think that Mr Nick [i.e. Nicholas Biddle] will fee us well." "Major" Noah (far left) falls as his press is tipped by the men beneath it. He calls out, "Oh Master Nick, I rather think these workies will not stand my screwing them." Comments from below are: "Aristocracy and U.S. Bank power is heavy stuff." "Major I think you are rather a green hand to apply the screws." "Charles Major & Co., you may screw and screw untill Nick doubles your wages then we will not submit to an Aristocracy Bank!" In the center "Charley" works at turning his press, saying "Major & Co. I wish you would think on your friend and divide the spoils." From below: "If those silk stockings and ruffle shirt gentry gain the day, we workies will never vote again!" "I'll be darned if the General [i.e. Andrew Jackson] gave Nick such a patent right to screw us poor workies so!" "No I rather think he forged such a patent as this is." "I think the General is an honester man, he would rather put his veto on it." Beneath Webb's press the men protest: "You may screw Colonel [Webb] until you screw the cholera morbus out of you, then I will not bow down to a golden calf." "I will submit to any thing but a golden calf!" One man calls out to Biddle, "Split my tarry top lifts Old Nick I think you had better be reefing the fore top sail than standing on the quarterdeck giving the word put the screws on those poor workies!!" Biddle is in fact urging his minions, "That's you my cousins give them the screws and I will remember you!" Jack Downing observes, "I'll be darned Mr. Nick with all our fleet and Rank and file men, I rather think thhat them ere workies will rule the day arter all for see the Major is going down!" The man with the monocle declares, "Oh! you workies If you fail in the next election you shall never vote again!"11ocn869827544mix18190.10King, RufusJamaica [New York], to his son FredericGiving his consent to Frederic "to apply for leave to return ten days or a fortnight before the end of the term"; telling him that his mother [Mary Alsop King] wants him to bring home all his clothes so she can determine what clothes need to be replaced; commenting on the cold weather and remarking that his mother's health "has been less good ... than heretofore"; informing him that his brother Charles had another daughter; adding that his brother James is in good health11ocn070945035book1.00Langdon, JohnJohn Langdon, William Whipple, and Elwyn family papersHistoryRecords and correspondenceAccount booksThe Elwyn family and other papers consist chiefly of letters to John Langdon's daughter, Elizabeth (Langdon) Elwyn, of Portsmouth and later Philadelphia, Pa., many from her children, but also from naval commander Isaac Chauncey, editor Charles King, and lawyer Timothy Upham, who managed her New Hampshire properties; papers of her husband, Thomas Elwyn, lawyer, including records of the John Moffatt estate and the subsequent legal case; some papers of the Elwyn children: Alfred W., John L., Thomas O., and William O., and some of their descendants, including members of the Stone family; 16 letters to Peter Livius; and a few papers of Tobias Langdon and other Langdon family members11ocn122584234mixHenry, JosephHistoryThe letters in this small collection concern the Smithsonian Institution, the Colorado Territory, and Humboldt's observations, among many other topics11ocn055635190art1999King, CharlesBiographyFri Mar 21 15:25:08 EDT 2014batch25869
