Stock, on which I am to lose a large sum of money. I see that on Wednesday it fell off at which is 8 or 9 per cent lower than it was when I au- thorized you to buy for me. I know nothing of the d d stock, except that Brcmner was dealing in it, and it had been rising- for a month, and I hardly thought my buy- ing would knock it down forthwith. Perhaps it will go still lower, and may be worth nothing for all I know. If eo, and if t own any, sell if you think best, and let me lose lihe present difference.

[No. 10.] My dear should think you right about selling the Patterson, if it will not do to hold.

Mr. Charles Sumner the other day, depicted to the worthy Pilgrims down at Plymouth, '-the angels of Heaven, bending over that good old man on the banks of the Hudson: meaning the i; old who franked jiis son s blaspheming, stock jobbing and gambling letters, when the object of both father and son was to brag" the Whigs out of an election, and peo- ple out of their money. There is a good deal of the tone of t'ltese let- ters in Mr. John Van Buren's late speech; at Fan- Hall. At any rite, a certain freshness in his manner, and an occasional rowdyism in the turn of his phrases and thought, were not deemed gether respectable, or in altogether good ijaste, by many among his audience. even some of those who invited him may be a little to an expression of Burke's which Mr. John in find themselves pigg-ing together heads and points in the same truckle betf" with a man who tMk> and in thu way.

The Ordinance of I7S7 hangs sus- pended on the result of ihis election. If we elect Gen. Taylor and a Whig Congress, Congress will send him a bill prohibiting the extension of t la ve- ry, and lie pledges himtclf not to thwart the peo- ple by the Executive veto, thould Lewis Cass be elected, with a Congress of his way of think- ing, he would not contemplate the result. This is an era in our history. Unless we are now arrest- ed in OUT downward career, the early simplicity of our Government will pass away or merge into an Elective Monarchy, with an Executive veto to overrule the National will. It is Whig principles we contend for in the election of Gen. Taylor. Congress will command his Judicia- ry his obedience. We are now losing sight of our Republicanism.
