In one asks Mai of our presidential Candore who can Oring a nto the contest the greatest capital in popularity with the smallest drawback of popular dislike. What Avail All other qualifications under heaven if the candidate be popular popularity is in politics that very a Mantle of Charity which covers a multitude of sins it is to a a candidate for office what Good Fortune is to a general a abstractly considered and As relates to the individual perhaps an Accident a but As regards the Genera or the candidate an Indis sensible qualification As necessary to him As hands a re to a Workman or feet to a runner. Let us speak plainly a for the time has come and we should fall in our duty to the whig a a arty if we neglected to improve it. Or. Clay we have Ever regarded As an table honorable upright and patriotic statesman a warmhearted and High minded Man. We supported him once for the presidency and would do so again were we not in to doing almost certain of defeat. deficient in popularity. He has been upon the Public stage some five and Twenty years candid and some times course has of ten Laid him Bare to the attacks of his ene Mies. Prejudices against him of different sorts most unjust and unfounded is we l believe have been by the diligent efforts of his adversaries so ingrained into the popular mind in every part of the country that nothing can eradicate them. The ardor with which he sustains those opinions and measures which he has adopted if in has Mode warm friends it has made hot enemies and every body knows How quickly Friendship grows cold Aii benefits Are forgotten while enmity heats by delay and injuries or imagined injuries rankle deeper and deeper into the heart. Or. Clay s influence failed to sustain j. Q. Adams in the presidential chair. With All the a fibres new do to elect or. Clay himself in 1832, he succeed to obtaining Only Forlin Nijmie electoral votes and in the election of 1836, him of and his friends were so Well satisfied of his deficient taif a i t of its opponent bin c and to , the name title of the democracy imly.

In this respect to do but symph Whize with the great mass four Feitli re Lizena or Massachusetts and with Large numbers of the Best informed and most enlightened of the it Cople All Over the Union. List or. Webster is equally deficient with or. Clay in the essential requisites of popularity and like or. Clay he is obnoxious Toa Large number of inveterate prejudices which have been for years zealously nursed and fostered by the diligent envy and hatred of those who did not dare to assail him in any other Way. 7 to result of the late presidential election joined to More recent indications furnish conclusive evidence to our minds that or. Webster is not an available candidate there remains then Only general Harrison a a Man who if his career has not been so Brilliant As Taftt of the two Ata Tennien above named has yet Given evidence Aubo head of our armies As the representative of the u. S. In a foreign country As the governor for Many years of the North Western territory which now includes within the limits Jve great states As United states senator for Ohio and in another humbler but not less Reapon sible office of capacity integrity sound sense amp genuine patriotism and who possesses above All hat essential requisite of which we arc in scorch to wit the favor and Good will of the mass of the people a in other words jew it try. It was with the Best reasons that general Harrison declared in his speech at Ravenna extracts from w hich a Cro published in tills paper of August so that Quot in was the voice of the be which i used him to Clingo the peaceful and to him Moat delightful occupation of the Bua Bandman for the troubles and to Titica tons incident to tie situation in which he now stood. It was the same voice which had again ele Vafed him to an Equality in claims for the most office not Only in tia nation but in the world with the two most distinguished citizens of our to entry and he added with a proper and be Tomid Gill however willing he might be As an Indi Virbil to their Superior attainment a Tea Aci Enoe of govern Niento he qum not and would not bring Bini a of to a Leval Mim that upon a Biel to Ronny Bono Aii intelligent and patriotic Eit Icena had placed Bim if he should be obliged to mate his own Praton Tiona to be wild Oaly claim Tho Narit of boing if it a equal an Quot older at Ataman always Trio Anion up ter of tha rights of the Eoula to to of Pucila of the nation and in Tho ool their fait Brol and devoted gooral Harruna at a Mont oat of disarray in to vory heat of tha last Pooai Montial Oon teat with out previous prom ratio or of Nosrat waa dragged Almon into Tkv old a i to Tho of Pele prompt.

Tfk��., we know to nil that there Sam May ardent and devoted friends of or. Clay and of or. Webster both in Thia common wealth and elsewhere who will read Thia article with no very pleasurable feelings. To them we Fay Thna a rally Wilt them our individual if Nelmi would have been different a have studied the indications of the political sky with a wearying attention Ever since the assent by of Congress at the extra , in Hopes find some signal of Success fur one or the other of our favorite candidate. But none could we Noi can we find. On the contrary we Early a proofs and from time to time they have been growing i stronger and stronger that the Only Chance of the whig party was to unite heart and hand upon general Harrison. It is very True that the great majority of the merchants the professional men the capitalists and the leading kit i Ticiano would prefer greatly prefer one of the other candidate but it is to be considered thai Tho very circumstance of this preference is unfavourable of those statesmen in whose behalf it exists for it is that the classes above Allu red their Influent Soaad their merits Are still lot and upon by to great Nasa of the people,.tfa certain feelings of distrust and dislike and with a sort of envy which takes pleasure in thwarting their political aspirations. The a Ivorite candidate of thebe classes is always obnoxious to the charge a which however unjust stud exercises a surprising influence a of aristocracy of silk stockings a of pre a bring the interests of Tho few to those of the Many. All these common place re pouches which however we May denounce them As Ihu creations of false Ihmi and Malignity Are Yei always urged k hardly Ever without a powerful effect by All who Are poorer and humbler against All who Are Richer or More elevated a these common place reproaches when directed against Gen. Harrison fall imbecile and harmless. He is not the favorite of who in common parlance Are distinguished As the Arisio Ricy and that very circumstance Intro Safe his popularity with the mass of Tho Pem. A those favorite Soever he May be he a sri of a generous sensible and honest Man and when it comes to a question of preference and who shall yield is it not fit and pro or that the few yield to the Many is it not Rasoi Wibly that those who arrogate to themselves Superior Wisdom and discernment should give some proofs of it by yielding up for the common Good preferences which have nothing in them and securing substantial Victory by a sacrifice of Caprice and self will or. Webster and or. Clay by giving their support to the election of general Harrison can obtain for themselves a fur higher distinction than that of being president. With Harrison for a candidate we Are certain of such was with any body else the contest at Best is c out fun. Tho sacrifice of his own personal advancement to the Good of his country is the highest exhibit icon of patriotism and the highest claim to glory in any statesman s Power. These Are our serious and deliberate views. They Are conclusions to which to have come after a Long and careful study of the whole ground and conclusions which appear to us so very weighty that we feel obliged to throw them out for the consideration not Only of our More immediate readers but of Tho whigs of the whole country. It is for them not for us to decide. Whatever Cali Didamie they Nayi finally fix upon whether Harrison Clay or Wel Ster he will have of course our enthusiastic and unwavering support. It is our destiny to do Battle iii the whig cause and whether Victory speeds us thiong the disordered ranks of our opponents or whet her defeat pushes us into the last ditch we Sciull a till fight on steady and a dismayed Foi he Good cause to which a Mare of in cry contest is Victory end that in the Long run depends less upon courage or Perse Vea Ranee thou upon proud once and policy.
