I consider the ensuing election for Pics idenl, and Vice as uniot.g tht most important that ever took place in our country; ranking with that of 1600, when the democratic principle first triumphed in the person of Mr. Jefferson, and wilh the two elections of 1328, awl 1832, when the same principle again triumphed in the per- son of General Jackson; and I should lock upon all the advantages recovered for the constitution; am! the people, in these two last triumphs, as lost, and gf-ne, unless the democracy of the Union shall again tri umph in the election of 1836. To succeci in that wiil require the most per :ect harmony, and union, among ourselves To secure "ibis union and harmony. have as few aspirants for the offices of President and Vice President as possi- ble; and, to diminish the number of these for one, shall refuse to go up on the list; and will remain in ihe rank; the voters, ready to support the of democracy by supporiini; the tlectioi of the candidates shall be selectee by a General Convention of the democra- tic, paity.

I shall refer only to what has hap- u-necl in my own times, and under my own eyes. His firm, aad devoted, support of Mr. Crawford, in this contest of 1824, when that eminent citizen, prostrate with disease, and inhumanly assailed, seemed to be doomed to inevitable defeat, was that non-committal? His early espousal of General Jackson's cause, after the election in the House of Representatives, in February, 1825, and his steadfast opposition to Mr. Adam's ad- ministration; was that nor.-commitftl? His prominent stand against the Panama Mis- sion, when that mission was believed to be irresistibly popular, and was .pressed upon the Senate to crush., the opposition mem- bers; was -that also, a wily piece of non- corjfcrnittal policy?
