Complete Explanation:
A Whig campaign badge produced for the Hoboken Clay Club featuring portraits of candidates Henry Clay (right) and Theodore Frelinghuysen (left). The portraits, in overlapping ovals, are surmounted by an eagle and a scroll inscribed "HOBOKEN CLAY CLUB." Below the portraits are two circular scenes showing Clay, "the Mill Boy" on horseback before a mill and (at right) cheered at a political rally near the Capitol as "The People's Choice."
