In the cannot help of Turc Ssang the skin twist of Flo Josia lilo so Iii will receive ,1 Issi Pic. Or. Rives in his late letter to thereof Virginia took the ground and reasoned with for comper considerable pm amiability that gen. is of in the office of the first auditor fifth to a National Bank. Such surely is not his Ioli tical attitude before the people of Kentucky. Upon a question of such vital interest the question of the currency that which has so deeply agitated this nation it is lamentable 10 think that a candidate for the pref Dency should keep his opinions so shrouded in mystery that in one Section of tie Union he May be quoted on one Side and the reverse in another. Yet Candor compels , that not Only upon this but upon nearly every subject that enters into the contest is there a like degree of Reserve exhibited. I will not charge gen. Harrison with being that political malady which. If it Ever takes firm hold upon the Union As surely As that there now exists a slave population. I will Noi impute to him sin Lor a hich if he be Guilly. No atonement can he had in the splendor Oftis military deeds or in the purity of his past life. A Naif his friends with his consent deem it right to quot make no furthered Clar Atlon of principles for the Public Eye quot then is lie morally responsible for quot giving Colin penance to this Fin Apical sect. His conduct does most painfully contrast with the a magnanimous position of his opponent the president of the in lid quot Stales who has alienated Liis Northern friends by his Stern Fidelity to the South and West upon this Nie Nemous question i speak of facts which the Cou Wilry knows. Parly feeling and inexcusable ignorance May deny to Hira this honorable Meed of the Day is Noi Distant when the judg Vieni of i his nation will be awarded unbiased by the Iran glory. Influences of an excited political struggle. Upon a subject of this character involving so much of feeling and. Pregnant with so much of calamity and woe i choose Ray station of a Side who Oters himself an impassable bar incr to these mail fanatics rather than on its Side whose position is Al least edit vocal and in r egad to which lie maintains a spy serious silence. A with my Limi Loil Powers of observation i can see no Triumph to be achieved by the election of Jen. Harrison but Iho simple Busti ution of one let of officers for another a this might be Ile Sira ,.dld it involves a oiling Borc. But the country Ughi not to a invoked to put Lis Trust in gon. Harrison when he is nol willing to Pyi Liis Trust n like country but appeals to it generous Confidence in Advance Asig distinctly avowed by his accredited committee.
