father to be made President the United States mainly by the North whom it been the business of his own and father's to abuse and calumniate may perhaps be gathered with some distinctness from the following letters in a pamphlet entitled aw ions of Benjamin Franklin and Jesse by W L Mackenzie 1845 pp 60 pamphlet which the persona interested endeavored at tbe time to suppress by an injunction in Chancery 1 John Van to Jetse at Why God you Jesse buy stock and draw upon me at sight You must be poor bitches down if you cannot raise this two penny sum If the stock has one up let it go to The Bank will come up against the Safety Fund Banks depress Governor's ure will eventually relieve the country Yours J VAN BUBEN N Y Stpt iy M Van Ewen My dear make use of a frank the old man left with me to let you know that I am a- bout as unhappy a as would wish to the fear that you have me some Patterson R R 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 you to buy for me I know nothing of the d d stock except that was dealing in it and it had been for a month and I hardly thought my 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 If I get out of this job you may consider me l: discharged as the Cholera reports read Yours truly J VAN Avon 27 Alby 7 Paid cts Addressed Mr at New York My Pear say the blood of the Martyrs is the seed of the and heaven knows 1 have been freely lapped on the good cause Of THU cost me a fortune now 1 don't see but I must lose another hunk of my tle earnings My impression is that stacks will go up till election and fall immediately after If the poor Whigs could carry a constable somewhere and get up a Jubilee stocks would rise New Jersey may go for them and give them a Penna will knock them stiff next will and so will New York If you could get the difference bet on Marcy I should say sell by all any how I don't know but you had better sell exactly us you sec fit I shall be down before it falls time I should be most larly obliged to you if you can get me an even bet against Marcy to any amount less FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS I think I would bet 100 on each 1000 ity up to I would bet against on an even election I consider Marcy's election by from to majority as sure as GOD You know best how much the Patterson is worth and you must do exactly as if it was your own and I shall be satisfied Yours truly J VAN BUREN Post mark to Mr Hoyt at New York My dear should think you right about selling the Patterson if it will not do to hold By the looks of Webb's paper although it is intended no doubt to operate on New the opposition gained confidence Can you tempt them with it longer on 6000 majorities on on 40001 If neither of these can be got to-morrow BET them on majority Thern will be no betting after to-morrow Save the order for Boa and Prov Mob is all right We have nominated a strong ticket though Livingston Ned is the Assembly man contrary to all expectation Yours ever truly J VAN BUREN Albany Oct 12th 1834 We wonder who Mr John Van pondent in Boston now making his bets for him We should be glad to know how much he expects to win this time when the are knocked stiff Mr Charles Sumner the other day depicted to the worthy Pilgrims down at Plymouth angels of Heaven bending over that good old man on the banks of the meaning the i old who franked 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 ple out of their money There is a good deal of the tone of ters in Mr John Van late speech at 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 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 together heads and points in the same truckle with a man who and in thu way But they my makes men acquainted with and if Mr Surnner and Mr arc not good company the aring roistering person whom give thean a boort eh bidder no doubt in time they are in a fair way lor A mass of the of New York friendly to Gen s Election was held at Garden on 7th inst There was an multitude of the Working men and of the city present The meeting was by several distinguished speakers and among the number by H whose remarks are thus sketched in the Tribune He said the summons to be hens to-night found iiin on tho soil of Pennsylvania laboring in the cause There is no longer any need ol New York speakers at home but help was needed in We had told the hnt York was composed ol fifty-six ies anil that she would give an average majority of for each county for Zuchary Taylor or for the State Every General Scott Worth and not forgetting Pillow Gushing had been called to Taylor only was excepted We must cor- rect and call him to report for himself on he 4th of March next He not in favor of war nor was he for military candidates but there was a When tad mry vote you prevent being iron for the former is to rote in favor of tbe latter You may not intend it to but that not utter the consequences of the course you bad and a old of in ready ibr the to come A sight still and more met with IM such a man in hour the are ferer of gain drove him into one mow U might reasonably have been hoped illation that swept him to ruin Ilo ia l old that the dreadful lesson we in 1844 j to begin life ugain at the bottom of the lull would have taught wisdom to the present j and he retires lo the bosom of his but it appears that on the men ol ab- i family to die They have been brought up ia the teachings of Providence the experience of past are equally In as now the candidates uf the cratic party were the avowed advocates for the acquisition of new territory and the extension of slavery Then now tiie Whigs ored to prevent the annexation of new ry and the extension of slavery but their forts foi these purposes were rendered by t lie course pursued by the Liberty party That party though ly having same objects in view as the but under the pretence that they could not vote for a slaveholder Mr ed an entirely distinct organisation and by ing away their votes on men whom thoy new could not be elected secured the tion df Mr Polk as President and uf a deci- ded majority of the Democratic members of Congress It is this distinct organization which stands justly charged with the ation of Texas and ail the consequences which resulted from it Mr Birney minuted this in a measure when he said Wfl might have prevented this annexation of Texas but ed fitness in electing Gen Taylor ant civilians forget themselves find plunge the what would have become of our distinct intry into war to subserve their own if that organization instead of beine a means were itself an ultimate we may well select for the Chief with this them the racy a hero who opposed the war and its party are again pursuing in the thors i game course which in 1844 led to fatal The country is now suffering from an excess of importation It is brought to the brink of an em- similar to that of 1837 We must rally to put down the Tariff of and with Mi restore the principles of The interests of Free is also involved in this canvass The Ordinance of hangs pended on the result of election If we elect Gen Taylor and a Whig Congress Congress will send him a prohibiting the extension of t la ry and lie pledges not to thwart the ple by the Executive veto thould Lewis Cass be elected with a Congress of his way of ing he would not contemplate the result This is an era in our history Unless we are now 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 ry his obedience We are now losing sight of our Republicanism The whole politics of the try turn on this What Gen or Gen Taylor's private opinion The Executive is becoming so powerful it is absorbing all the branches of Government Elect Gen Taylor and our Government will be restored to its pristine purity and perfection We have some friends leaving us for a guerrilla party under MAITIK VAW These are ancient and faithful friends but it is in a moment of frenzy that they are leaving us Suppose we had refused to support Mr Clay in 1844 we would have been doing what they are now Yet how much we would have been for our conduct had we gone for James G Birney in place of Mr There can be but two parties Is the Whig party less faithful to Liberty and Humanity than its opponents They must succeed if the Whigs fail Thu nomination of Martin Van Buren has shivered his old party to pieces It has ended the Abolition party The great Whig party remains It not dead It has stood up in days of ness and difficulty for the right and has always accommodated itself to the spirit of Humanity and Universal Justice The proud party once rallying against us is disbanded and broken It is gone king throne and sceptre from its palace at Albany The whig party is still the same In the election of Taylor and Fish and Patterson it will receive renewed in its progress toward its noble destiny It will prove itself a party to the Con- beneficent reform to healthful gress to the Rights of mankind and the signs of the times encourage us in our hopes that it is speedily to become the great ruling party in the destinies of our glorious Republic If any of our distinguished men have been overlooked we may regret it but when has it been Cicero testify that this has been too much the history of our cast Th'S Sage of Ashland towers above his age his country and mankind Now is the time to establish Human Rights on a basis that shall not be shaken New England is true to her core Pennsylvania where the god of sits enthroned in her gloomy erns is looking to us for an example If we are only faithful now true Democracy will be established permanently among us and that party calling itself Democratic which has crushed beneath its feet the best interests of the country will be for ever from the cils of the commonwealth ty We commend the fallowing to the ful attention of our readers It ia an extract Arid who are the new patron saints under whose auspices this new organization has been got up 1 They are the Van the Butlers and other hackneyed politicians men grown grey in base subserviency to Southern interests but who now having roller with their associates about i the division of the spoils have got up this to restore themselves to power and i influence Gen Cass it a man with ern man ia favor of extending over the territory already acquired and d acquiring new territory in Mexico admitted by all every vute withheld from Gen Taylor is in fact a vote to Gen Cass and hia schemes I have already shown Let us now then examine the tions brought against Gen Taylor and sec whether they bo such as should prevent a conscientious lover of his country from voting for him Tho first is Gen Taylor's pretended for the of president 1 say for this incapacity is entirely a assumption has been ed through life by sterling unswerving rity and by sense and a sound Now these were exactly the which rather than genius Washington and rendered him the best ident this country ever had All the errors and wrongs which stain the pages of our tional history have been the result not of a want cf talents but of a want of integrity or cf sound judgment second objection is that Gen Taylor is a military man and must therefore in favor of war and of new conquests The fact is admitted but the inference docs not follow Louis Phillippe and Marshal Soult are both military men and yet they kept a nation ger fur at peace during seventeen years Welling on in and in are the friends of peace In try Gen Scott he could to preserve peace during our troubles about the Eastern Boundary and Gen Taylor mended to remain on defensive in regard to Mexico It waa not the military men who brought on the late Mexican war That war was the wanton deliberate act of President Polk of his reckless cabinet of civilians SPIRIT OF AMERICAN LIFE Wf select the following racy spirited and truthful sketch of the life of ness men from The Artist Merchant and a work by C Lester the celebrated
