The True intent and at lat his election depends the political salvation of actual effect of the Bill is to prevent the Emi Loy in Repov to federalism general Harrison says Mankind say nothing of the startling egotism mint of Public Money either by corporations or p t a t of such an expression but what Are we to think by individuals for private use.

Van Buren cannot or Freim a touch even a Dollar of his own salary will they endorsing Harrison s assertion in except in virtue of an express Law passed by deed stand to this then the next step is to loth houses of Congress. And nothing but grasp the sword of violence. And in truth Stone blindness of party spirit can excuse a Man it would seem As if their candidate half Antici making the random assertion that the sub rated that very event Quot peacefully if you can Quot Masury plan it would be in violation of the is his expression.

Let it pass and let those discover surpassing eloquence dignified language and elevated sentiment in it who can. I make no remark on its style or spirit. An old Soldier has Ever from time immemorial had the privilege of Quot fighting his Battles Over again Quot in any style that pleased him Best. On such an occasion men excuse much. But it requires the Assurance of a whig editor to Tell us with becoming Gravity that Preston Webster and Clay must All hide their diminished Heads before this uni valued Effort of the orator of North Bend. Pass we then to the matter to the political sentiments with which the speech winds up. Go the subject of his refusal to give pledges to the people since his nomination general har Rison makes the following most extraordinary declaration a a it is my opinion the no put if. Sofij be Siade by an individual Whon in rms Mai i or for any of kick in the t it the non Aniie of tier expedients remain shadowed Forth in the ominous sentence Orand that he Quot Only awaited the Possession of the they were All with hardly an exp Gall this but an Idle meaningless vap Oring i purse to make him a Monarch not a Monarch Sim Ith republicans and federalists will threat if it be How utterly unworthy is it of a i p with the Power of England but a Monarch with the i Terence was that the re pub yes to the first and most Lionora the Powers of the autocrat of a Monarch. Nay he goes further than this. J. Meaning of that if friends of he says the republicans of America Are in a he expressed it out he did not believe the trial Harrison Tell us plainly now before hand i much worse situation As regards their govern would succeed.

It is but an unmeaning bluster got up for the occasion and to die and be forgotten when the occasion has passed away. It does not contemplate treason it is Only intended for effect. But How Low is that party fallen which is thus driven to support a desperate cause by Means As desperate As the cause they Are brought to Aid when some of the note less journals of the Day Deal in these Bootlegs extravagances and ring the Idle changes on ruin despotism autocrats and All the rest one passes it by unnoticed forgets it perhaps almost before the silly Sheet is cast aside. Vav Hen similar language is employed by one whom As the possible occupant of the seat which Washington and Jefferson once filled one desires to esteem and respect then the Case is altered. We look on with sorrowful Surprise. We would shut our eyes if to could on the fact that a Man aspiring to an office so High should stoop in Hope of Stic Cess to Means so unworthy. And even when the fact stares us in the face it begets within us no harsh feelings towards the individual but Only a settled conviction that a Man of general Harrison s character and of his age who has Given Way to the promptings of evil counsellors and fallen into the hands of an unscrupulous party is wholly Lafitte for the station to which he aspires the presidency of the United states of America.
