It was establish cd we Ime understood by the evidence of gentlemen on the around and from the letters of Reuben m. A i met the agent of the Banks mar the Treasury that the principal Obj Clio on the part of the govern Anent to granting the Niph cation arose Freir a belief that the Hank could Noi be veil to Aid the election of Martin fan Fiuren to the presidency. Whitney in hi3 correspond enc Wilh a director of the Caiji cited the election of Sena tors ill Sangamon shortly after the establishment of the Bank at Springfield and governor Duncan a letter a bout that time As evidence that the l had used its influence against the administration and therefore he would not Sanction the Eppli tion until the Bank exonerated itself from the charges. Cal. Mather president of he Bink judge Smih Samuel Wiggins esq., and others were examined and on saturday the sergeant at Arnos was despatched for ii. Tilson a a. The report of the committee will of course be printed with the Examina ions and so much of the correspondence As can be obtained the italics in this paragraph Are these of the journal from which we copy it now we Are not going to affirm the exact truth of the above statement because there May have been error in the information which the editor of the Republican has received. It May by possibility be All false. But this we must observe in regard a to the journal in which we find it that it is a journal discreetly conducted not prone to violence and not Given to miss Ere a citation. We must suppose therefore until it is contradicted by Evi Dence that the statement which it makes is Suslan Lilly True and will be borne out by the testimony which it appear has been taken before a committee of the Senate of Illinois and is to be published by its authority. We must As now viewed consider this is the first evidence accidentally univ d Al of a system of political Cor trip Loii by Means of the control exer ised by the exc Ontive of the United slates Over the Public treasure the t Xii genre of which has been suspected by Many and asserted by some but which until moment we have not been thoroughly convinced of.

South Bend 9lh feb. 1836. Genl men a your letter covering lilt proceedings of the convention by a Hii h i was nominated their candid ate i r the Picini ency of the United slates was received in the due course of the mail and the resolutions hey contained arc such As to create �<1 Rny bosom feelings of or a tilde to v\ard8 people of Maryland which n ill be Cheri tied to the last moment of my i Xis Lence. These feelings were greatly increased from the a a Al fiction that Wilh a very few exceptions i wits per Onady unknown to the members of he convention and exclusively of some of her statesmen with whom 1 have served in the National councils but to a few others of Ber Citi Xeinis. With thous Iii of those of some other Ltd Latch i have been Asa Oci hied in Scenic where the difficulties and Danges to Whyl we were in common exposed have created a feeling of hid partiality which ii often found to wrap the judgments of Good men and induce them to Bealow Iligir .

This is precisely the ground which i wish to occupy. Conscious of m4ny deficiencies and imperfections i have endeavoured to Supply the place of the qualities i wanted by unwearied Zeal and a deviating fid Ity. How delightful is the reflection that by an As sensibly so enlightened and free As that of the late Maryland convention the character in which i so ardently desire o stand before Ziy countrymen should be accorded to me. In relation to the Freedom Wilh which the Choice was made gentle men i venture to assure you that should your a flirts to place me in the executive chair of this great nation prove successful that he influence and patronage of that office shall never be used to control or impair it in any of your future deliberations. And that if in the year 1839 your own great Emporium or any other place should be the theatre for the exhibition of another National convention it shall be As far As my efforts can effect it what that of 1835 purported to be Quot an Lisembly fresh irom the people the True representation of their uni Assed wishes the faithful Echo of their opinions this declaration is made with perfect consciousness of the Little Corfi Dence which is Given to pledges of any kind made by persons situated As 1 am. 1 know that they have been made and violated in every age and in every country where men have de Pended for their advancement to the highest offices on the Good opinion of their countrymen. But in almost every instance the deceiver has been found possessed of grasping and insatiable to Ibitson of which he germs might have been discovered in his pre Vious conduct and generally United Wilh commanding talents. There is i Trust nothing in my previous conduct to show that i possess the former Char Acter amp utterly disclaiming the latter my sole Reliance for preserving the Ood opinion of my countrymen is the preservation of that character for Fidelity to my engagements which the convention which you Gittlemen represent As Well As others of my fellow citizens have pleased to allow.
