The Maui gets Are various but All concentrating to one Point to a the Emeralion to Power of a party fundamentally composed of the federalists but now joined by every faction and disappointed fragment known to modern times and the overthrow of the govern Orient of the people s Choice. To effect this we not Only see every Means used in this country not honorable Means but Bac fraudulent and die lion Oracle but we see the friends of the same conglomerate party in England very of viciously lending their influence by gratuitous advice and actually sending Over Large quantities of British Gold to Cor Rujita the purity of Trio ballot Box and w Liili will make the elective franchise of Wirich the Deino Riili portion of american citizens arc so justly proud and jealous a scorn and a Bye word. The intelligence Oftle a mass of the people is treated by the leaders of that party with derision. Instead of joining Iesue on any of the great questions of the Day and Dis cussing them honorable and fairly they att my get to mislead and deceive the people by Idle clamor foolish shows Coon skins log Cabins and various other Humbug which ought instead of deceiving to disgust All sensible i in. Many of the leaders openly assert that the people Are too ignorant to be convinced by argument Aud can Only be reached by foolish excitement noise and Parade. That party has openly refused to let their sentiments on great subjects of interest to every one be known to the people. In fact every Side of every question is embraced or re Hidi ated according As it is popular or unpopular in different localities. They have treated the Reno eats of the people made in a proper and dignified manner with disdain and contempt. On the other hand we have before us a Man who has been tried and not found wanting. One who has received the commendation of the greatest Man now living of Andrew Jackson. One whom his Monr it it opponents dare do Justice to. One who trusts implicitly in the intelligence of the people who never has and who never will desert their cause. With jul Artie surest and Richard a of. John Larson we have the Good old democratic principles to support the same principles which led our fathers on conquering and to conquer. They must be preserved in their purity and to that end be it resolved that we continue to have the most unbounded Confidence in the integrity and patriotism of Mast a Yam by Rah and will exert ourselves and us All honorable Means to procure his re election.

A yet needs no body guard of three to protect Hii opinions or quack to certify to the sound Neas of his a ppr Iory. Resolved that we Hail with enthusiasm the passage of the Independent Treasury Bill As completing the divorce of Bank and state and restoring to the people the custody of their own Money of which they had Long been deprived to the Benefit of Stock jobbers and Labaren and which will be the Means of restoring to the country a sound and uniform currency. Resolved that it a the duty of every Branch of oar Cik it re Ament both state and National to prac time and enforce the most rigid Economy in conducting oar Public affairs and that no More Revenue either by imposts or taxation ought to be raised Tymn a required to defray the necessary expenses of our government.

What Chw the administration done or of coat Arentt Adt Briar Apon it the fierce denunciation which through the country have they Law to tax or Opp Reaa the dwell Tammi we to item on the contrary the pay Eidbo to and con Giina have Paa aed at their . Shaw a a a a Liff Alafae Vaiona pre Imp ii Lawa for the special. ,. Quot. I befit of men of that class who have the Enterprise and Iara Al Bane Ware appoint and % and Industry to seek Independent Home on the waste Landa of the weat. Haa any Law been Paa aed or a commended to prevent men crediting their fellow men for service a or property in All the relations of life t nothing of the sort. Has any Law been Paa aed or recommended to prevent Banks from loaning out All their Meana to the Rich or the poor and enjoying ail their lawful privileges in the highest degree 1 not at All. Have any new taxes been levied upon the Farmer or Mechanic no. On the contrary or. Since Gen. Jackson a election have not about half the Doriea on imported article which Are conducive to their Dubai autence and Comfort been removed 1 Yea truly. Their Burdena have been reduced they pursue their occupations in peace the world is open to them a a Market the Farmers Are every where thriving with a Comfort unsurpassed and if they and the mechanics do not get As much paper Money for their produce and labor As they did a few years ago in is not on account of any act of the government but because the Banks having Lent to speculate a More Pabb than Thev can keep out Are obliged to curtail the currency and in some places where they Are not obliged to do so Call it if for the Pur Obb of Mareino the people so Rosr. Has the administration in any Way interfered with the business of the merc Hanul by general Jackson Many millions of dollars plundered from them during the wars of the French revolution and Smartt in vain to be recovered by proceeding and Mimi rations were secured to be repaid and have been received. By new treaties the scope of Commerce has beep extended. Half the duties on importations have been taken off enabling the people to Purchase and the merchant to import larger quantities of merchandise. Has the administration recommended or Congress passed any Law interfering with professional men the doctor lawyer and divine 1 do not the doctors cure and kill without the interference of the general government 1 does not the lawyer without restraint from that Quarter get All the clients he can manage their cases As he chooses and charge them As much As he can make them pay 1 is not every divine at perfect Liberty to preach whatsoever doctrine he please to enlighten with truth or bewilder with sophistry to cherish Humble piety which makes Earth a Paradise or kindle an arrogant fanaticism which makes it a hell to collect As Large a flock As he can and tax them As he May 1 in none of theae things has the administration interfered or proposed to interfere. Why then is it assailed if the taxes on the people have been reduced instead of being increased if every class of our people Are pursuing their avocations in peace without let or hindrance from the government and appropriating the proceeds to their own use Why is the administration so bitterly and incessantly assailed 1 do the Farmers want Congress to pass a Law to enable them to make three crops a year from their land As the Bankers May from their Money 1 do the mechanics expect Congress to enable them to sell three times As Many articles As they can make 1 do the labourers want Congress to enable them by Law to no three Days work in one or get paid for three when they perform Only one i or Are these classes insisting that the government shall let them have the use of the Public Money until it is wanted for the purposes of the government to make them Rich by lending it out on interest they Are not so unreasonable. They Are Content to be protected and let alone they do not look to Congress to fertilize or till their land to strengthen their sinews to Grant them special privileges or give them the use of the Public Money. To heaven the Farmer look for its genial Sun Ond refreshing Rains to Earth for that munificent Friend which never fails to pour Forth riches when properly solicited to his own Strong arms and willing heart As the honest Means by which he is to enjoy in profusion the blessings of heaven and the bounties of Earth. In a similar foundation rests the Hope of the Mechanic and labourer. His heart and his strength Aro Bis capital he is Content with perfect Freedom to apply them As he pleases asks no legislative authority to Confer on him advantages not enjoyed by his fellow labourers or fellow men Iliouch less does he ask the government to hand him Over the Public Money that he May get Rich by its gratuitous use. Not with these classes do the attacks on the administration originate. When general Jackson caused the Public Money to be deposited in the state Banks instead of the Bank of the United states who was it that exclaimed in the United states Senate Quot we Are in the midst of a revolution bloodless As yet i Quot not a Farmer or Mechanic but a lawyer who had received seventeen thousand dollars in fees from the Bank and could obtain Money from it whenever he asked it. Who on the same occasion exclaimed in the streets of Baltimore Quot there Are no sabbaths in revolutionary times 1&Quot not a Farmer or Mechanic but a lawyer who had also received Many thousands in fees of the Bank and procured Loans from it whenever he wanted them. Did the uproar into which the country was them thrown Spring from the Farmers and mechanics on the contrary was it not excited by a Bank president and directory fed by Means from its vault and lashed into a fury by in dependent lawyers and debtors hired instruments and deluded admirers in Congress and out did the Farmers and me Banica Para the unconstitutional Resolution in the Senate denouncing the honest and intrepid Jacksom a an usurper on the contrary the Farmers and me Banica of the country never Reat de until this stigma upon the first Patriot of the Republic was expunged from its recon. It is just so now. The Tucka upon the administration do not originate with the people with the Farmers mechanics and labourers whom the government protects and Doea not molest. They feel to oppression from their government and week no Favora from it. I complaint a heard from them at All it is excited by the falsehood which Are inca Santly poured into their Eara for the purpose of making them the deluded instrument of the privileged order Quot which producing the mischief ii it charge on the administration Aweeka thua to enlarge and perpetuate ita Power. Look at the Harrisburg convention which nominated Harria or and concerted the grand scheme of driving reason from the can aaa and carrying the election by Showa thou a and Drunken revelry. The following Clarai fiction of in member Haa gone the Rounda of the papera and we have not area it contradicted Viz to for a adoption bit tag. Whar Eupo ii Feua Ariy eat Jill Hiie were reported and adored commit lae had retired the Hon. Rompf Dale Owen add Saaed tha meeting in an ibo limit Paech of three Houra which highly Gratis Hla Herrera whar aaa it a the privilege if not the duty of the Taa Etimoa of this Republic peaceably to As Atamble in primary me Tioga to exp Reaa their approbation or disapprobation of the conduct of their Public agents and also to Cravata freely and unreservedly Public principles and sentiments. And whereas this meeting has been convened in part for that object therefore resolved that we repose the utmost Confidence in the democratic administration of Martin Van Buren and that we yield a Hearty support to the principles which he avows and practices in his official station. Resolved that in col. R. M. Johnson the vice president of the United Stales we Reco Nize to he fullest extent the hero the Patriot and the Sage a a True son of democracy a Soldier with genuine certificates of bravery of the very Best kind and in great abundance. Resolved that As democrats we Hail with Pride and pleasure the Prospect of a visit a Mong us of the True hero of the thames and that we will use our Best efforts to give him a Hearty Welcome to old democratic Sullivan. Resolved that we recognize As Cardinal Points in the democratic Creed the following principles Viz uncompromising opposition to a National Bank a permanent divorce of the go it Vern ment from the Banks or other corporations of the country no appropriation of Money for internal improvements from the u. S. Treasury except for works strictly National and of absolute necessity no Tariff for Protection a simple frugal and constitutional administration of the affairs of government a no More taxes to be levied and collected of the people than May be found necessary for the immediate wants of the government no National debt no Large surplus if possible to prevent it no Union of Church and state or any approach thereto no repeal of the naturalization Laws no sedition or gag Laws a no legislation giving to the Man who lives by his wits and his wealth any advantage Over the Man who lives by his Labory no distinctions in society except such As virtue and vice May make necessary. Resolved that As democrats we View with some degree of jealousy and concern the evident Effort of a majority of the wealthy and educated to array themselves against the great body of the Labouring classes of society Well knowing that a minority with wealth and education at command will have powerful weapons to Wield against the majority in bringing that minority into Power. Resolved that All appeals to the passions for the purpose of exciting popular prejudices disregarding and losing sight of the True Issue now made Between the two great parties in this country is but one of those desperate and illiberal efforts to obtain Power which must fail if Light and truth can but exercise their Sway. Resolved that we regret the late defeat of our worthy and talented fellow citizen Gen. T. A. Howard in his Effort for the gubernatorial chair believing him pre eminently qualified to relieve the state from the financial embarrassments into which it has been plunged by mis management and mis rules our Confidence in his talents and integrity remains undiminished.

These views Are presented to prepare the mind of the Reader for a full Devol Pement of the origin Progress and principles of the present Federal whig party.�?gio6<. Another accession. Sex govt Boa Tazewell of Virginia one of the most distinguished men in that state and who opposed or. Van Buren b election in 1836�?has, after having closely watched his official course frankly declared himself a supporter of his re election. This declaration is made in a letter replying to or. J. P. Young who had solicited or. Tazewell s opinions upon the merits of the two candidates for the presidency. We have not room. For the whole of the letter to Day and Content our Seif with the following extracts. The letter is dated Norfolk aug. 23, 1840. In my judgement. General Harbison is both physically and intellectually incompetent to perform the Many varied arduous and important duties which must devolve upon every president of the u. States that it is not prudent to expose our country to the certain perils which must await it should its destinies Ever be committed to a president by Accident in times of difficulty and High excitement and that such a catastrophe is always probable when one is elevated to the presidential chair who has already reached the full term ordinarily considered As the limit of a Man s life. To a kind letter from friends in a Distant state inquiring what were my opinions of or. Van Buren s administration i have recently replied. A copy of this reply is now before me and As it truly represents my sentiments upon this subject i will transcribe my answer to the inquiry propounded i was opposed to or. Van Buren when he was first a candidate for the vice presidential chair and my opposition to him was continued when he was afterwards a candidate for the situation he now holds. Upon each of these occasions there were other candidates who As i thought agreed with my opinions More exactly and whom therefore 1 preferred. Entertaining such sentiments i have watched his course since he came into Power with a vigilance that might not perhaps been used by me under other circumstances. Yet with All this vigilance i have not been Able to detect a single unconstitutional act that has been done during his administration. This is not a slight Merit at least in my eyes and when i connect with it that the whole scheme of his policy in regard to All our relations whether foreign or Domestic has evinced much sagacity prudence and forbearance and this too under circumstances of great difficulty i cannot withhold my approbation from such a course. Quot these Are not the sentiments of one who Haa any claim or even pretensions to be considered As a Friend of the present president. They Are the result of a careful examination into All his Public acts since he has occupied his present station an examination made with As much Candor and impartiality As i could command. This examination was commenced i know with no expectation that it would end in such a result. But it has so terminated and common Justice As Well As common honesty compel me to award him a Meed in my judgement he has so Well deserved. The support he has thus fairly earned i will willingly give him so Long As he shall continue to Merit it. Nor will 1 Ever concur in the attempt to remove any tried servant who As i think has deserved Well of his country. I am sir respectfully. Your most obedient serv t. Littleton w. Tazewell. Or. J. P. Young Portsmouth what says the Gallant Boyd j at the Cloae of the last War the army was reduced to a peace establishment and it was the Fortune of the Gallant general Boyd not to be among the officers retained. Upon this subject he addressed a letter to the Secretary of War enquiring if the fact that be was not retained in the army waa intended As a censure upon Bis conduct and ifs upon what such censure was founded. The conclusion of that letter we sub join with the simple remark that at the time and up to a very recent period Gen. Boyd was universally called the hero of Tippecanoe Quot a title now studiously Given to another. Age.

Fortunately for the Surah res there happened to be a Largo lighter at haad into which with much difficulty and imminent danger we succeeded in making Good our Retreat. Much danger is apprehended from an inundation of Western Texas by the combined forces of the centralist and several tribes of hostile indians which apprehension is very justly predicated on a letter from a highly respectable gentleman in Matamoras to an acquaintance in Texas together with other corroborating circumstances too Well known for the interest of the West. Yours in haste Quot l. H. W. it appears that the indians first attacked the town of Victoria from which place they proceeded to Linnville. At Victoria they killed several Oft be inhabitants and Burnt the houses. Those of the citizens that were left had fortified themselves in one of the Corners of the Public Square they were without arms and could Only rely on axes clubs dec. About 40 men had left the town about the time the indians first made their appearance in the Vicinity and had gone to the Indian Encampment about four Miles above the town in the night expecting to Light at Daybreak. They had not been heard from Twenty four hours after they were supposed to be All killed As the indians bad come Down next Day and again attacked the town. From this place the indians drove off about 1.500 mules and horses. Amongst the persons killed at Victoria were col. Pinkney Calwell and a mexican servant. A private letter which to have received from a Friend at Matagorda giving an account of Gen. Houston s Battle with the indians says the indians Are completely routed having been compelled to leave All their Booty together with the lady who was made prisoner at Linnville in the bands Oft be Whites. Seventy eight of their dead bodies were found on the Field Many More with their wounded they succeeded in carrying off to places of concealment. Gen. Felix Houston is still in Advance of them with 800 men and 500 More Are in hot Pursuit after them. They will no doubt be nearly All Cut to pieces. The country has completely recovered from its temporary panic. Linnville is fast being rebuilt it will never again be spoil for the indians. Emigrants who May have been frightened into any delay by the Indian news May rest assured of their perfect immunity from danger. The War now waged against the Savages is intended to be and will no doubt speedily eventuate in one of total extermination. From the Western whig published at la Orange Tennessee a bet offered. We Are utterly opposed to betting in All ita various forms but especially to betting on elections. We think it morally and politically wrong. But there Are thousands who will Back their judgment with their Cash and we suppose it will continue to be so As Long As men continue what they Are. We Are requested to publish the following offer $10.000 on Martin Van Byren whigs take Voi ice i am authorized not by the government or any of its officers to bet the above amount or any part of it that Martin Van Buren if living will be re elected president of the United states. This is not the kind of argument generally used by democrats but As bragging and boasting appear to be the order on the opposite Side i now offer gentlemen this Opportunity of backing their judgment. I Hope to be pardoned for the impropriety and immorality of offering to bet As i should not have thought of it but for the example of so Many of Ray Good whig friends Here and elsewhere. Campbell Stewart. La Grange july 28th, 1840. From the Catskill recorder. Read read the following letter from a Federal whig merchant in this Village was sent to a Quot whig Quot in Potter s hollow. The siderite it who has his fears that Harrison will lose his election Quot will recognize his own language it is unnecessary to publish names Friend sir you must do All you can for the Harrison cause for i sometimes have my fears that he will lose his election but stick to it like a Good fellow we must never give up the ship until the last moment. The whigs will give a Large majority in cats kill. If the whigs Are Defeated this time it will be a heavy blow for them. I believe that do cd sub Treasury will injure our cause. I did not believe they would pass it a if they bad not we would have been Safe. Do your Best. Yours dec. Q the returns from North Carolina account satisfactorily for the majority which the whig candidate for governor has received. Ten of the Western counties interested in the proposed Railroad have Given him about 10,000 majority while in All the other counties the democrats have gained. More Bead is in favor Oft be Road and Saunders opposed to it. This question will not be carried into the presidential election. By the Laws of North Carolina a property qualification is Necea aary in voting for state or Conaty office Ray which exclude about 16,000 Persona who can vote at the presidential election. Thia May make a Small difference in whig calculations. Act Haven Register. Clay and office of mawr general of the u. 8.
