It appears that your acceptance this nomination has excited a considerable Jei Lousy among the Federal whigs throughout the Union. They com Plain that you did not accept the nomination conditionally and with reference to the great Federal a High bul Itron it anti masonic it conservative convention to be held in december next and subjecting yourself to that convention. Now As in other cases who never i have had it in toy Power to conscientiously take your part and defend you i must in Titis Esse say that you Havo acted with More consistency than is common with your party at the last canvass you deprecated conventions As destructive the h Edoin elections you conceded that in a great measure they went to deprive the people their franchise and yet you gave that As a very principal reason for your in ing a candidate. Now 1 say you have preserved your Quot consistency infinitely bet ter than same others your party who were As loud Ili their denunciations conventions is you were and yet they Are now the strenuous advocates them and they complain bitterly your nut professing yourself amenable to the decision this great projected convention. Sonte the most knowing our friends however have taken it into their Heads that the advocates for a convention have a sinister design in View and that the convention was not projected so much to concentrate the influence the party As to Rule you off the track in favor their own particular favorite Clay who i believe. You Are now convinced has bad no Friendly feelings towards you for eight ten years Back notwithstanding your exertions in his favor in 1824 and 2s. It was therefore under the impression that Clay was to be the favorite candidate that they resorted to the idea a convention and in Ohio they merely be de your name to be a cd to give Sanction to a convention confidently expecting that at its meeting nothing could be More easy than to put you off the track and bring him Forward in full Torce. This was clearly developed in the manoeuvres the old Clay party in Ohio last year and if further proof were wanting we hive it in the to speech made by Clay in tie Senate a few Days ago when he came out in full rage Ugains the abolitionists and anti masons though he had previous to your Nomi nation treated them with extreme moderation and no trifling degree respect but now that they Havo declared to their attachment to you he loses Hopes them and gives them up in order to conciliate the Southern states but Here cunning As be thinks a from to Waitt Egton Otobe.

Via Baren was found a a Bromling the torrent a it Poel Tion and supporting with the Zeal a True Patriot every measure which had a tendency to strengthen the Arm the National ski verment to give Security to the extended frontiers his own state. Justice can Only be done to him in this respect by a reference to the journals the Senate to aet Forth the various acts in which he participated would swell this article to too great length. An at tempt the Federal House to convert the affairs the Navy into matter political agitation was Sig it Nally rebuked in the following report in 8bii4t>. March 17, 1813. Or. Van Buren from the committee to whom were referred certain resolutions with the recitals preceding the same adopted by the honorable the Assembly the second Day March 1813, relating to the creation and support a Navy to the High sense which the honorable the Assembly enter Taine the valor and heroism displayed by our seamen to the Justice and propriety rewarding that valor As particularly displayed in the capture the Uri Tieh Fri Tes the Guerriere and Java the the Sloop War frolic Een using the House rep re tentative con grf the United state fur re fun big to do to and requesting them and the senators this state in the Congress the u.

As Well the facts relating to the same As the opinion your committee As to the course proper to be pursued by the Senate in relation to them. Your committee fully coincide with the the honorable the Assembly in their just appreciation the distinguished Honor to which the officers and seamen our Navy have entitled themselves every occasion which has been furnished them during the present War to evince their Superior prowess and so natural and irresistible to the american heart do your committee feel this sentiment to be that they cannot indulge the belief that there is among us a single american whose heart is not cheered by the contemplation those deeds heroism which have distil inuit hed the conduct our Brave tars which have arrested the attention and fixed the admiration an astonished world. If therefore it was competent for the Senate to separate that part the said resolutions from other parts thereof with which your committee can never advise the Senate to concur it ought. In the opinion your committee to meet the United approbation the Senate but this their Rule and practice will not permit and the Senate Are bound to concur non concur with the resolutions the Assembly with the Power amendment. Your committe would the More regret that the resolutions and recitals the honorable the Assem himself to be he must fail for though he May have i Bly combined matter which will be seen is in the removed one obstacle from his path with the South opinion your committee highly objectionable Ernert another stumbling Block lies in the Way not with such As is in an eminent degree laudable had quite so easily removed his High Tariff system Hig not an Opportunity been afforded and embraced by Compromise and his internal improvements the concurrent Resolution the Senate and the Hon system which he will probably find More difficult to Oracle the Assembly the 27th Day february surmount than that his favor and moderation towards the abolitionists. Then general you have been involved to another difficulty by those Quot democratic patriotic Quot friends yours the Ritner the Steve uses the Burrowes and pen roses those Chiv inc democratic republicans who hold elections Only to be effectual when they terminate in their own favor and otherwise treat them Quot As if they had not they have associated you with Daniel Webster placing his name the same ticket with you As a candidate for vice president.

I Hete is one exciting and very important subject ter a dose for Thoin to gulp Down. But Here another most egregious inconsistency is involved you pledge yourself in this letter to be your Quot utmost efforts 10 carry out the democratic Republican doctrines upon which the administration Jefferson and Madison were conducted Quot when you Are associated with a before the Public general which you Are silent in j who used All his efforts to we the doctrines your letter but in which i Ibok you gave your j,.fi-Erson. And would have had Madison impeach the canvass 1836, and if 1 correctly recollect you stated your Willm Joess to have a sum raised by taxation sufficient to Purchase the Freedom slaves from their owners the slave holding state Wilether not you still bold to that opinion is not for me to at it i your not having stated in Litis letter in which you discuss matters it Erba its minor consequence seems to imply that it you have not changed your mind. Now this As Well As the subject the nation <1 Bank you seem to have formed your opinion without reference to the Constitution its provisions for As in that instrument no authority can be found for the arc amp Tion a National Bank then As Litile for taxing the free states for the purpose purchasing slaves the slave holding states. The Constitution guarantees to the slaveholders their property in their slaves but recon bios no system general taxation for the Pur Tiase those slaves in order to set them free. I am exceedingly apprehensive that your friends in the Northern and Eastern states however enthusiastic they May be in favor the Goliti Southern slavery would be extremely Why St paying uzes fir the purpose raising Money to Purchase Freedom for the slaves. At the census in there were m the United Sites about two millions slaves. Suppose to increase in ten years to be equal to the ten years preceding which was Over 30 per cent would give us about 2.6u,- Joo rating them at $4u0 each it would require 1, >4i.o. X 0 for their Purchase then taking the whole population the Union Fez Olustee slaves at 14,,, it would require 7476from each individual free Persou in the Union Man woman and child to raise a sum us Brient Lor the Purchase. Suppose this to be raised by direct tax and tax gatherers to be sent into every Hoase to collect it what a Damper it would be to to philanthropy those disinterested humane i irritable haters Sis very to have demanded them nearly 75 dollars per Bead to carry their very pious purpose into effect. Some them can be acted upon a aet schem ing knaves to set their names to petitions to Congress praying fur the liberation the slaves and thas to deprive their own in Elmir property in them without remuneration but ammo zealots would hesitate to pay even an equal share this tax with the slaveholders to have their Moi wishes. 80 far m mining petitions subscribe a few cents to procure the printing and publishing incendiary jul drills Mir files and pictures go they have no Letioa but to touch their Pockino to the extent to your projected scheme wiil go you would a Waii find that they draw Back and cease their Eser Tiem yes.

General Daniel Webster never will never can be supported by any honest faithful democratic Republican. Your association with him would ruin your cause in the West if there was no other objection fur no Man intelligence who knows the history the country and parties since he has come into Public life can believe in the coalition Between democracy and the Ultra federalism Daniel Webster. The very principles you have you Laved Down in your letter Shew that All tho democracy in the Case is the Mere name those principles Are essentially Federal they in effect abjure the Constitution and they set up in its place the arbitrary acts an oligarchy at the head which would be a my who would substitute his own political dogmas for constitutional provisions to this the democrats the Union will never submit they look to principles not to names. Under All the disguises assumed names for which your party Are particularly distinguished they can still perceive the tory principles the revolution the Federal those the first Adams and lha whig 1834. Under All there and Many other deceptive Cognomen they can perceive those principles which Are antagonistic Al to democratic republicanism.

Last relating to the exploits our Brave seamen and officially promulgating the distinguished consideration in which they were and ought to be held. Your committee further report that although they Are fully impressed with a conviction the dangers which May arise to a free government from the maintenance Largo naval military establishments the Strong incentives which the Possession Means gives to the exercise them although they feel and admit the Wisdom and propriety the various attempts which have been made by our government to prevail the belligerents Europe to stay their aggressions and to subdue their hostilities by acts Justice our part by appeals to what was the Law nations and to their Justice and magnanimity still your committee Are bound to admit that the course which has been pursued by those belligerents since the years 180g and 7, since their decrees and orders in Council which have in effect prostrated that code which heretofore regulated and controlled the conduct civilized nations and substituted Power for right which in their effects destroyed our Commerce and to which although their rigor is at this moment somewhat mitigated we May again be subjected in its fullest extent at such a Lime and under such circumstances your committee would advise the Senate if the course and practice the Senate would admit it to concur with the honorable the Assembly in the expression the sense the propriety a reasonable increase our naval strength. With such parts the resolutions and recitals the honorable the Assembly As have for their object As in the judgment your committee they have to censure the House representatives the Congress the United states tor refusing to Mike the provisions therein stated and As containing a request instruction to the representatives and senators this state in the Congress the United slates to use their efforts to procure such provisions to be made your committee cannot advise the Senate to concur for reasons in their opinions the most obvious and conclusive. First. Because although the practice instructing their representatives to tho general government matters which Are to be acted upon has been heretofore followed by our state legislature their right to which your committee think it unnecessary to consider discuss upon this occasion Yel that practice has not to their knowledge been extended to the right censuring them for their conduct in matters which they hive acted and to Call them to vary that conduct and in the Best judg ment your Coin Mittee that Extension would not Only Lead to frequent and hostile collisions Between the general and state governments but would moreover be incompatible with the spirit and Genius our government. Secor Pilj. Because the Resolution in its terms Only embraces our representatives in the twelfth Congress whose Powers by the provisions our ceased the 3d March while the resolutions the honorable the Assembly were passed the 2d March leaving an inner vexing period such Short duration As that by no human possibility they could be made to reach them before their Power became extinct. And notwithstanding your committee Are bound to admit distinctly the purity the views which must have actuated the honorable the Assembly they could not advise the Senate to subject themselves to the inference which the illiberal and the censorious might draw from these facts Viz that they had so Early begun to prostitute that sacred spirit which has been produced by the prowess our sailors to to support the political divisions and dissensions which unfortunately distract and at this time highly Dishonour the american people. Thirdly. Because the Twenty third Day february last the House representatives the Congress the United Sutee passed and the son ate the United Sites have subsequently agreed to it. The same Law As for a refusal to pass which the honorable the Assembly the Yacond March inst. Censure them. That the not Only made tha provisions sought fur but to the utmost extent which any one reprise native thought it ought to to made. That if therefore As the honorable the Assembly appear justly to suppose a a Justice required and Public policy demanded Quot the provisions to be made that Justice Baa bean sati aliud and that policy attended to.

This passed the Senate 15 to 11, but was rejected in the Assembly where the federalists had a Mojor Ity. 70 be con Mueco Federal whig frauds say the people to this 1 we ask our readers to read the following and note the Rasca Lity those who Are continually crying out against the democratic party for committing the same offences but which charges they cannot substantiate. Contributions from whig members Congress to the amount $20,000 have been levied to support that vile Sheet,.the madisonian because the intelligencer will not do a the base and dirty work the feds. And now the whig members Congress Are turning to effect the same object by abusing their franking privilege to Forward those vile papers As Public documents. Quot the paper will be forwarded under Frank. So says . Clark. We Here see the whole whig members Congress forming a fund and levying a tax their office Holder and adherents to support a party press while they circulate it in violation Law and to the detriment the government. Wonder if our Greef Castle Friend the colonel Quot has not received a lot this Quot Public document Quot under Frank 1 we see the visitor puffs it right lustily. How Long will the people tolerate these things not Long let them awake in their might and hurl these dishonest men from their seats. Teach them a lesson next november that they will not soon forget.

No sir it May answer some depraved whig appetite who is accustomed to nothing in the shape truth. I cannot Force myself into a belief that a gentleman would Send an individual whom he never saw Fuch trash unless it was for the purpose insulting his understanding. I will not consume any More time the subject with you but will close by informing you that should i receive any More them from you i will Send them to the speaker the House with a request that that body May take action it.

A discussion these matters would we fear be lost upon you for we cannot conceive that a Man a Nice sense Honor would Send to individuals lie never saw whom he knows nothing papers so false in every particular and so contemptible in their matter and manner.

That the Federal members Congress Are exceedingly industrious in flooding the country with the madisonian and other political publications has been Long known. How they have performed this service in past years is also Well known and How they propose to perform it now and to replenish the Central fund Quot will be Learned from the following letter from the Hon.

And the remark is applicable particularly to democratic members Congress. They cannot be ignorant the great efforts the Federal members and the activity with which they Are put Forth. They Mast not shut their eyes to the fact that these require counteracting efforts not through the Agency a Central corruption fund nor by appeals to sustain those through whose instrumentality it has been drawn from its party contributors and by whom if not upon whom it will be expended but by a vigilant discharge their duty As representatives by the free circulation the Public a documents and the speeches democratic members by the Active and untiring dissemination truth As the True corrective falsehood and error Washington feb. 18, 1840.

At oae a the recent processions the friends Harrison the words Halo Cibor were conspicuously displayed one the banners tie image a cider barrel Aad Pitcher has become a favorite device with a certain set politicians and we Are told a certain knot them who meet every evening at a tavern which bears that sign. The Baltimore Patriot yesterday morning has a woodcut representing the dwelling Harrison with a barrel hard cider before the door and a hug Pitcher in the window. It is intended no do Tibt by this expedient to obtain popularity for . Old Hickory Quot was in Appelm which Many the admirers general Jackson were fond giving him. The whigs Are imitative and ready to take any method catching popularity except the True one that acknowledging popular rights. They have doubtless considered that both Hickory and hard cider begin with the letter a and that both Are hard and hence by an ingenious analogy conclude that if Gen. Jackson under the appellation Quot old Hickory Quot became president the United slates Harrison will infallibly succeed by being called tho Quot hard cider there is doubtless much virtue in hard cider but it is worthy inquiry whether it will impart the proper qualifications for presidency even to him who drinks it most diligently.
