The Federal party has no reasonable ground of opposition to Zvir. Shank totally with ardor to his support. No Public Man of the present Day has evidence of his to the democratic Faith. As True As the Needle to the pole neither tha assaults of enemies nor Heim Jar Jenab has move or Tittle frown. Principles upon which rests he superstructure of american democracy. He has fearlessly exercised his High constitutional prerogative in arresting All partial and unjust legislation. Standing upon the platform of on he has driven from the Legisla Tive Halls the whole Brood of monopolies and corporations. Appealing to the Constitution and the Bill of rights he has resisted All Grants of special setting the primary truth that the Grant of exclusive privileges to some is repugnant to our whole system the intent of which is to make firm the equal rights of such is Francis r.

Jamea Jervin is a federalist of the old stamp a Man who counts Bis wealth by the Hon dred Tho Saada. This it woe thai Poi Lei him out to the Federal party a an available and Brusly candidate. The Conadera Tion of his vast wealth give him the Nomi nation Over Bis More talented but poor competitor Ujj Uiko Cooper. There has been such a leaven of democratic Aen Simear in fused Ioco the Public mind of late upon the subject of corporations and monopolies that federalism was unwilling to Trust any Man except one who had heaped up enor Mous in the enjoyment of Speed of privileges and who was connected by the closest ties with every Branch of the family of corporation. The monies aristocracy of Philadelphia City apprehended danger lest a poor Man like James Cooper should Fine Nan some some agrarian Loco Foco notions Boul and the right of the la would never do to have such a Man and the matter was therefore taken in band by those who Etrul can the nominal Ion of or. Irvin by a vote of Tiro to one a the convention taught or. Cooper and his Phalanx of Young and enthusiastic whig friends that mind stood a poor Cianco against Money in the councils where fed eralism1 sat to deliberate. It is even to.

It will return with an appetite sharpened by abstinence and Goj be itself Wilh corporate franchises and immunities. It will again riot a the jails of monopoly will sue need monopoly until the Industry and la Bor of the stale shall be completely within the Power of its voracious jaws. Irvin sealed his Fidelity to the Money Power in his steadfast support of the United states Bank and by his violent abuse of general Jackson during the whole period of his administration. So unrelenting was his hostility that it followed the Patriot into retirement. When in Congress he made a cowardly opposition to that act of jus Lipe by which was refunded the e Fine imposed on the old hero for his defense of new Orleans. Again he gave a new pledge of Fidelity to the Money Power in his advocacy and support of the late bankrupt Law a measure More pregnant with iniquity and fraud than any other act of modern legis lation. It robbed the honest labourer of millions and enabled the fraudulent debtor to maintain the sumptuous extravagance of a Prince.
