Sensible that it is equally to the Protection of Commerce and the Honor of the country that it constitutes the right Arm of the nation in All often Sive operations that it is one of the main instruments for exacting satisfaction for insults and retribution for wrings and that under no circumstances is it Likely to be perverted to the establishment of a despotic Hovver or. Van Buren has equally Given it Iii fostering care and sed Ulous attention.

Van Burn resisted these threats and disregarded these clamors although state after state whirled around on its orbit and deserted for the moment the a incr of democracy. To reposed on Quot the sober second thought of the p Opie and the event justified his Reliance on their intelligence and integrity. He remained at the Helm steadily steering his course by the Polar Star of Public Faith and National Honor. The result was such As ought to fill with honest exultation the bosoms of All who value these As the brightest jewels in thedia Den of the Sovereign pm fat ple.

The credit of the United states escaped the Gen r a a met tiie a feet Anchor of their liberties to protect themselves from imposition falsehood and As necessary to this great object from Hasty and undue excitements artificially stimulated and attempted to be supported by the Power of Money not the Force of truth. We also entreat them to look to the conduct of their Rejiri tentative servants and see whether in the discharge of their duties insidious approaches May not be gradually making if not upon the Freih Lom of popular elections at least upon their Etc ency As the first constitutional step under our systems. State and National in carrying into execution the to Iular will. The course of the opposition in Congress Calls for the most serious consideration of the people. Charged As that body is with the guardianship of the great interests of the country the Public have a right to expect that those who compose it will devote themselves with undivided attention and a remitted Zeal to the execution of that High and responsible Trust. In w hat manner this just expectation has been fulfilled will be seen in the history of the present and the three preceding sessions. Its proper deliberations have been Peri equally disturbed by discussions having no relation to the subject matters of legislation before it producing interminable delays in the transaction of the Public business and embarrassing and postponing Ordinary and indispensable measures a tial to the common dept Isicc and general welfare and clearly demanded by the expressed wishes of the people. Nor Are these the worst features in this picture of degenerate legislation. Controversies of a personal character have under his administration a constant gradual increase of More than once usurped the place of Calm Readio eng and a it a i 1 o of i i it i to a a a Iii a it it it i a ii f .<1�?��?�ii. The materials for the construction and armament of ship and the improvement of Navy Yards to the amount of several millions in value has occurred the number of ships has been increased some of those on the stocks have been brought nearer to completion the most persevering to forts Are making to revive and invigorate the discipline of the Navy and to remedy As far As possible that Scarcity the presidential election and his supporters very Caret ily follow this example of their selected Leader Llis Public history is certainly not n history of civic triumphs nor has a life spent Iii Public employments mostly civil presented him As the author of measures or even As a leading supporter of the pleasures of others essentially connected with the principles of our government or with the interests of our people. We Are compelled therefore to dismiss Cie Neial Harrison and beyond w hat we have already id to follow the example he Una set and his friends sanctioned to say nothing because is we Are forced to it resume nothing is to be said. We leave him therefore with his federalism established beyond question and Witt his questionable claim to a military reputation. Once More we repeat we Are not alarmists hut our Dut to the democracy we arc Here to represent would be ill Iii charged did we not Call their serious attention to the desperate a flirts which their opponents Are every where making to carry the approaching election and try gain Possession of the general government. If they were to succeed in the accomplishment of their object and thus be enabled to carry into execution their schemes of policy a those especially which relate to the management of the Public finances by the Agency of a great moneyed in Tito lion there is danger to at our Republican institutions though they might preserve their form would not Long retain their purity their simplicity or their strength. But in the discrimination and patriotism of the pc Ojile is unshaken and we confidently Trust and behave that they will not Only see the coming danger but that they will meet it with All the necessary measures of precaution. The history of All republics is Replete with instructive lessons to every american citizens lessons pc Culi it arly applicable to a Ione rement like ours formed by a Union of Index indent states. One and perhaps the most important of All these lessons is the constant danger of a foreign influence exerted in Romigh the Power of Money. The approaches of this influence have been gradual and imperceptible until within the last few years within which the Progress has been rapid and the diffusion almost Universal. The Ordinary operations of Trade Between commercial countries Are reciprocal and salutary. Enabling each to Exchange the commodities of which it has a surplus for others which it wants the Industry the convenience and the comforts of All Are promoted the wealth of All both individual and National increased a healthful and useful Intercourse secured and Liarny by of feeling 4 produced without any sense of . If however the reciprocal relations of Trade be changed for the relations of Borrower and Lender if one country or its citizens become Bor rovers from another country or its citizens for purpose not commercial the Are wholly different.

The army has been engaged in laborious and constant service. Not the least of these has been the removal of the Indian tribes who had parted with their lands in he East and were bound by treaty stipulations to remove West of the Mississippi River to the number of thirty six thousand souls.

A so effectually is tic Commerce of the coi try protected in every Quarter where Protection is required that we have lately seen the British admiralty with its five Hundred ships publicly reproached with the example of the United states in this particular. Let us now contrast the Jiichi Ira just presented with the opposition which the administration so conducted has encountered. The identity of tiie modern whigs and ancient. Federalists is evident and . It May be distil icily traced through All their changes of name and seen through All their disguises. The same Waul of Confidence in the honesty and intelligence of the Eole Aud in those institutions which guarantee their equal rights and the same disregard to their feelings and their interests Are always apparent except at those period a when Desi airing of Success by open hostility they attempt dec edition by an affected Devotion to the democracy As sudden Asl is Short lived.

A the tune those Ori Giliati a Lind during Llie Vii Ole period in Wlinich the Maizit Aind their Ascendancy their vva.-= marked by a degree of decorum which gave a Cert in respectability to the Princi is they in wed. So Long a ii Ian drily of lh.3 people supported their pretensions they treated Llie in with apparent rest incl while their rights by legislation in Confori Nily to their avowed principles. But the moment the tendency of their measures was discovered and denounced by or. , and they Felt theirs clues sinking from their Power their Deport Zient underwent so sudden and so Thorou ii a Clu Ange As to bring out in Strung Relief their doubts of the capacity of the for a Elf government. Trio Federal administration Bogan its War against popular rights by enacting Laws calculated and in i guided to repress and punish tho free exercise of the privilege of speech and the just complaints of tie people measures which were followed up by St Zirul ing armies to overage them in the exercise of to Weir Suffrages. These and other la infest Atiim of their , the people to defence they in liver might and the of Federal Power fell prostrate bet re them. From this period systematic political contests have been carried on be a Viveen the Tavvo great parties of the country the marked characteristics in each and All having been Confidence in the honesty and i intelligence of the people and their capacity for self government on the one Side and distrust on the other a desire for an Extension of the elective franchise to every free citizen of the country on the one Side and for its abridgement by property qualifications and other restrictions in the other struggle fur popular Equality on the one Side and for a Peculiar and monopolizing rights corporate and private on the other. In Short a Contention for popular sovereignty on the one Side and for a government con rolled by favored interests and privileged classes on the other. These contests have All been brought to the polls of election and by almost a necessary consequence have met nearly an entire uniformity Ordo Nisi ii there the prevalence of tiie popular Over the aristocratic principle. The presidential election at the period to which we have referred proved that the aristocratic principle was not to be concluded by the fair and distinct decision of the people without a struggle behind the polls of election to reverse their vote and to gain by indirection or fraud or bribery or of acc what in had failed to secure in the open Field of popular discussion. Hence the fearful and trying controversy for the i Rorsi Dancy Between or. Wefler so n and or Burr in the House of us preventatives in 18t The intention of the people As expressed by the popular vote was not a matter of doubt or question but when it was found that Power was dearer that principle to one of tho candidates upon the Douro Cutic ticket the tule Quot Divide and conquer became that for tho action of the Federal party in their Eft it to overthrow the Ulm action and make that Man president of the Republic whom from a mistaken Confidence the people had intended to make vice president. The limits of an address will not permit an enumeration of the instances since the memorable one above named in which the aristocratic party has attempted to defeat the popular will by Kindred efforts. 8unicient for our present purpose it will be to refer to postage in the history of the elections of the pimple in the patriotic states lion and sometimes terminating in ants of violence thus covering a Hall which should be dedicated to the sacred purposes of legislation or to the Protection of the rights of the Jie Ople and the a reservation of the Public Honor into a Ali eater for the exhibition of vindictive passions. The Brief review which we have Given of tho conduct of the opposition in Congress is in perfect accordance with the course of the Federal party during our second War of Independence. Uliey propose no measures though professing an Earnest d desire to relieve the country from prevailing embarrassments. They have steadily resisted every Efi Ort of the administration to carry into execution the plan which it has proposed for separating the fiscal operations of the government from incorporated institutions and which has a direct tendency to restrain that dangerous banking Power which by their Der Quot of Money will be found to have its application As strongly and much More dangerously than when dependent relation exists Between citizen and citizen of the same country. We Are not to be understood As condemning in All , Loans Between country and country or Between the citizens of different countries. Tho demands arising from a state of War and perhaps other great exigencies frequently Render such Loans by a nation indispensable while the transactions of Commerce Are constantly creating credits Between commercial men of All countries. In the first class of cases the War must be prosecuted or the other great National exigency met and the relation of debtor Emit red until returning peace or renewed Prosperity shall have wiped out the debt. In the second the operations of Ctm Merce Are anticipated and ordinarily depended upon with safety to balance the accounts and Agency and under the influence of their counsels had j terminate the unpleasant relation. To no transactions of grown up almost to an Equality with the government it-1 these classes Are any of our subsequent remarks intended self. Thus have the constituted authorities of the land to be a it ried. Been left powerless As to the control of the Money of tho j a very different description of foreign Loans and foreign j Eoj be and the punishment of defaulters who have Vio debts have become current in our country and to these it listed the trusts confided to their hands. They Haveis our wish to draw the Public attention. We refer to charged the Domor Itic party with wasteful Extrie Valance Loans made by banking institutions either to relieve them because the expenditures Iii Der this and the irese it and selves from embarrassment a aused by improve Talent expand ministrations have been necessarily increased by a re a Sions in banking or to enable them Quot to extend their opera Nival of the indians from w within our settled Borders a Tio is beyond the limit intended by those who grunted measure Hake Wise and essential to tie sati any of our Cit their i garters Liy companies and associations to enable Zens and distinguished by the most paternal clemency j them to monopolize an entire Branch of internal Trade or to the unto tunable Savage. They have founded a similar to embark in some Enterprise of questionable productive accusation Uji ii the exertions of the government to arrest the burnings the Tomahawk and the Sita Jiing Kolh which have covered Florida with blood and desolation. Thev have sniper added to All this attempts to obstruct the regular course of legislation by technical objections and motions and by every stratagem which parliamentary forms would permit and the most Fertile ingenuity could invent. By this course of conduct they have so impaired the High dignity and bearing of the great representative body of the i eople As to excite the most serious a in the bosom of every Lover of order Anil of eve Ness and by the states of the Union without the provision by taxation or otherwise of a Safe and certain fund to meet the interest upon their Loans. We think we Are not mistaken in the Assumption that All the Early foliate Loans Vivere sought in our own Market and from our own countrymen. We believe also that one of the acts of the borrowing state was to establish and set apart a fund to meet the payments of interest upon the Money borrowed. This Safe policy prevailed for a series of years and until deleterious examples proceeding not from the states of the Union but from incur portions by Friend of his country As to its moral consequences and the creations of the state and Federal , pro its tendency to Lessen the Consul Cnoc of the world in our i Ducco the change the consequences of Vav hich we consid Freo instill irions. J or so fearful and a is to Betm expected that in nominating a Candi j the Bank of the United states was the first to make Date for the Pri Sideh Yth it whig party would select the Standard of its credit Iii London the measure of Ila a me individual whose a political principles so far As they business in the United states. Other be id Itig slate inst have Bia u disclosed in his Public acts and d Cla rations 1 tut Loiis a a loved this practice of evil tendency and none Are in Accordi Ince with their own. This expectation his i of the incorporation which once adopted this Standard been fulfilled in the nomination of Gen. William Henry failed to make their interests conform to it. Thus a Farrison by the Ila Risburg convention. He May be justly regarded As a True of the political doctrines of the party which have put him Forward As their Leader and representative. Before the contest Between Thomas Jefferson and the elder Adams in 178, to had been already in Public life and upon the separation of parties on the leading political copies tons of that Day he became a supporter of the latter. From that time to the present nothing has appeared in his Public acts evincing any change of opinion of his part in respect either to the questions referred to or to others w hich have grown out of change in the value of Money in foreign countries would become the measure of Bank expansions and contractions in the United states so far As the business of the Bank of the United states and of Many of the larger state banking institutions were concerned. A Long period of general peace and of great Prosperity in All the branches of Trade and Industry rendered expansions graduated by this Standard much More prevalent than contractions and thus from the known excessive profits of banking in this county engendered an appetite for the multiplication of Bank Charters before Unknow n to subsequent divisions upon measures involving great priv \ us. A Lance the number of Banks in the country was at acted. Cloeo has been his adherence to the greed upon with Ecuador and Belgium and our National Laws and Indian treaties m which their title to nearly of Pennsylvania and new Jersey of recant Dato Aad yet but partially div closed to the Auto Niche View of our Young country. They show that the Princi Caples of government and policy. Indeed those who now take upon themselves to speak for him authoritatively and to be tho expo unders of his principles have publicly declared that on All the exciting Piest ions Wlinich Iorii Erly agitated and still agitate the Public Milid his opinions remain we May therefore justly Appeal to his former course and opinions As tho criterion by which he is now to be judged. Lit stands confessed As a supporter of the most obnoxious Federi Ilist measures the alien and sedition Laws and tho standing army of the elder Adams the High toiled do Trinci of the younger and the us ministry Tio is of both. From both he received confide acc and favor and from both Public office. If other proof of his federalism be Nece Sipary it will be found in the position he now occupies As tie sole candidate of the modern whig party for the highest office in the Gill of the people. In Lyilla As we do for tho of our cause upon the great principles of cams Tittio Al right and popular Liberty we do not feel called on to make a direct Issue w Ith the supporters of Gen. Harrison on the question of his claims to the title of a hero. Vve cannot however but remember the expressed apprehensions of the party that support him uttered by their great Leader a few years since Itiat the Elevation of a 3filitary chieftain to the presidency would be of More fatal tendency than Quot War pestilence and it is True we might question his claim to a place in history As a great Milieu in Leader and on this Issue we might Call for the Universal Jiing Mcnol of his country. Acts should speak Fiir themselves and most especially military exploits and the general who Reid tires from his subaltern their written testimonials to prove the Wisdom of his conduct the fact of his presence in danger or the value of his services to his country can scarcely aspire to the dignity of a Horo. Arc we mistaken in the fact that doubts and questions surround the Militar reputation of Gen. Harrison. Did they not exist even in his Camp and among his most Brave and Ellice it of slicers r did they not reach the Congress of the United states and at a time when the transactions were recent and the Means of information full induce the Senate to refuse to him those honors which were unanimously awarded to others with whom his name was associated ? did he not leave the military service of his country at the most gloomy period of u desperate War thus making his own act and the time chosen for it a confirmation of these doubts and questions to general Hiu Rison we would Render strict and impartial Justice and we propound these inquiries because tho history of the times not Only suggests them but furnishes a and affirmative answer to each. Will his friends reply that we Are proving their candidate not to be a military chieftain ? be it so. Their inconsistency in claiming for him that character As a Merit and a Quali cation for the presidency is not the less apparent if they shall he found to admit that tho Luis has no foundation in fact and Haiti or. Beyond this single Elim support of a face people As distinctive of the Federal Echo dilate for the presidency we Are unable to speak from any ground As yet assumed by Hin air or his friends. In ref reime to he Priam Les opinions and Acta be Yosyf his military there is an organised a Ileno a m studied As it a Iii fair. The country As been told As it would seem by auth onto that he is to write no More Quot for the Public Eye Quot oath after least doubled in the course of some three or four years and the bin Kirin capital was enlarged in a still greater proportion. This Multi location of Banks and banking capital in so Short a period could not Fiill to produce a proportionate expansion of our paper circulation. Such was the effect with the further Cim sequences of increased prices of property and an almost Universal Pai Sien for speculation. The multiplied Banks found customers because almost the Euire Community were stimulated to become borrowers and till great mass borrowed not to expend the avails of their Loans in Aid of productive Industry but to Purchase to Day for a High Price property which it was believed some other Borrower would Purchase to Morrow at a still Feigher. In a process of this sort employing Hun a Reilson Milliams of credit in the slide of Hank paper and Bank discounts the amount of interests annually accruing in favor of the Banks was enormous while the property upon which the Money was expended was actually producing nothing. Influences of this powerful character communicated tit the great body of the citizens of our country could not fill to be Felt in tho Legislatures of the states of the Ufi Ion. They Felt the Impulsion and acted under it Large Loans were a proposed. And it soon appeared that the in Crew of Hanks and other demands had absorbed too much of the american Ca Wiital to enable them to find a ready or n cheap Market in our own Colin try. The Mark is of Europe were Nat Nilly sought is not tho Federal government and not the a Over Menis of the states alone but local corporations in our commercial cities had there Fuu Nii such a Market for Large Loans upon their credit. For a time the state Sticks of All descriptions were greedily taken but is in All cases of Over tasked credit the Supply Pecanin More than equal to the demand and tho Market fell. The cons Quinco was electric throughout our country and the depressions we now Feci in commercial transactions in every Branch of Trade in the prices of property in our Domestic Industry in the wages of Hilbor flow from these excessive uses of credit at in me Anil these note nips to Overstock the foreign markets with our credits abroad. We Are aware that these Are Plain suggestions but can we be mistaken in placing them before our constituents and asking their awakened attention to them when we see tho Mere Bankers of London publishing to the amen can Public it a proposition that the United states shall become end Raery for the individual states a surety for the a Ernp Gemunu As a condition not simply to their Oli Taining farther to aug huf to the favourable Sale in the British markets of their a Toels and Bonds now resting there in pledge or advances of Money ? such a proposition As it teems to a a should startle the whole american people.
