I cannot omit to a Compario this Public annunciation with a few remarks addressed to the Republican portion of what was called the 1whig- party of 1840. I make new Appeal to that other portion which was formerly Knouff during the Early period of our polite Cal history As at a later Day As National republicans and now pass under the general appellation of. Whigs. Such an a peal would be wholly out of place since their political principles Are entirely at War with those i have advocated through life. I mean no imputation on their motives or their patriotism i doubt not that the old Federal party in the Lead of which stood the elder Adams were As deeply and sincerely convinced of the necessity of the alien arid sedition Laws As the present is of that of a Bank of the United states with other measures equally latitude Nous along with the abolition of the veto Power whereby to convert the g eminent into a Mere majority machine to make it the government of a single nation in Stead it is a political compact be tween tree Sovereign and Independent states by which so much Power and been granted to a common agent Wells bout sept u844, the states of so measures acid a donation to such of the Revenue and was derived the Public lands at a monent of great to the Treasury and when tons were necessary to sustain the govern sent to was charged with Tho commission the above with deserving All the pains and disgrace flow in slim the High Power of impeachment a measure As it was intimated Only not re sorted Loty the House because of a doubt a ruined whether the proceeding would by Public sentiment i had it is Hue protested against that report As originating in dictated by party ran Cor and malevolence it my protest was Rufuss la place on the journal s of the House in thin in future times my name might Bare been tarnished by the fact of a solemn declaration highly implicating my character Una Inirio a contradicted arid a reversed on the Public journals.

Before the close of the session 31 Congress however developments were so dearly Mil distinctly made As to the threat d that no Trace of such a measure 113 it. Or. J. Q. Adams s report implicating my motives and conduct in my be of the Bank and other Bills was deprived a of its Force effect by a re i mile by a committee of which or. Al York was chairman accompanied irresolution which passed the House of Presentati Pmj some few Days before the of the session by a Large and command not Only rescuing my motives but justifying and up wiling my policy. The voice of the people of 18-12 was thus directly res to by that of their remained for me personally either or desire. Since the adjournment Congress the language of Many of the Lead of the country and resolutions by Large assemblages of the people r primary meetings have still further to proceedings of Tho House in a More a of All the. State Sas they esteemed to be necessary of the promotion of their Mutual happiness. Them i Hare nothing to say. If i hav received their support at any time it a been not from attachment to me or my Polit ical principles but from some supposed influence which 1 might bring to Bear As a secondary agent in advancing their purposes. All the obligations which i have receive for such reasons have been More than counterbalanced by the untiring opposition which i have encountered at their hands since i attained my present station and the constant and unmitigated abuse which their leaders have poured out in a torrent upon my head designed As i verily believe Jin the first in stance to drive me from the government and in the last to overwhelm me with obloquy and reproach. But i have a to address myself to those who like myself co opera Ted with them in the contest of 1s40 who a and always had been the advocates of the principles of the old Republican party whose strenuous efforts have always been directed to preserving the compact of Union unbroken and inviolate who have sustained rom no apr v Ned it to be a sacred regard to the High standing difficulties ave been threatened most Seno ulv the at All times the principles of the Republican party of who have participated from time to All Republican triumphs whose fathers were victorious Over the elder Adams in the election of or. Jefferson As they themselves were Dver the younger in the election of general Jackson. To this portion of the whig party of 18-10 i feel that i have a full right to address myself and i now seriously put it to them to say whether Ariy expectation of Good to the country which they had formed in the election of general Harris fun and myself to the presidency Arlell vice presidency has been disappointed Many of us had been thrown into opposition to general Jackson during his last term hav ing v Ted for him upon his first and second n because of certain doctrines put Forth h his proclamation and because of cer Tain i measures which followed that celebrated s ate paper. Our opposition proceeded from no spirit of faction but from what we 6 beginning by increasing the Devange ments business for years attended in mid career with comparative reporting to efforts by All its Large Means to orce a re Bartet and ending its existence mid tie curses and denunciations of the Many it had ruined. Most of you bad like myself through All times pronounced the Bank of be unconstitutional. Had your opinions on this subject undergone a change in 18.40 and did you. Contemplate that general Garri son and during the whole con is t avowed our opinions to be unchanged in that respect in numerous addresses to the be deserving of denunciation of either of us should refuse to selves by sanctioning a Bank chatter which believing it to he solemn oath of office required us to vote against or veto Tell me moreover blotter republicans of 1840, had you then brought yourself yes to the conclusion that even admitting a possible abuse of the veto Power it was pro per to erase from the Constitution that great Barrier and Check to unconstitutional and highly inexpedient legislation thereby making the will of Congress supreme and in stalling the majority body in the Ful Possession of All the Powers of government or you or do you now still cling to the opinion in which the qualified veto Origina that a government without checks am balances is the worst form of oligarchy Anc that too Many guards in order to secure pub lie Liberty cannot be thrown Over its diff Erent departments if indeed you Are advocates of a change so vital As that proposed Hen May not Only the garrisons and Tappan of our own country rejoice but a Shou should ascend from the abolition Convent to of the whole world at the fact that of Federal system bad Way before the Power of a consolidated government woos will uttered Forth by sectional absolute admitting of no Check or from any Quarter whatever. If be your opinions then have i most Grievious by disappointed the Hopes you indulged in connection with my election and my administration. I must nevertheless most solemnly that had i been aware that such would halve been expected and required of b could have believed that candidate i was peculiarly considered and to conciliate whom i was nominated for the vice presidency would have required of me in the contingency which unhappily occur red that should commence my administration Witlean act of perjury and sanctioned measures abhorrent to every principle of my past life and at War with the property of the country and the continuance of Liberty i would not have suffered my name Humble As it was to have been breathed in the canvass.

One gentleman occupying a Tomi nent place in the deft Cratte party whether for Good or it does nerf a be ome my to say has assigned in an address delivered in Missouri two Bromine tit motives for its negotiation rest. Personal ambition and 2dly, a purpose to dissolve the Union. Or. Clay also in a recent letter written to the editor of a news paper in Alabama has called the treaty Infa Mous and ascribed to it in its origin Sinis Ter objects. I repel both their assaults upon the treaty and its negotiators. What object of mire personal ambition in any Way connected with office could have influenced the administration in negotiating the treaty the Public archives furnished the strongest reasons to believe that the treaty would have met the unqualified approval of both or. Clay and or. Van Buren. While the one was Secretary of state to or. Adams and the other to general Jackson each in his turn at tempted to obtain the annexation of Texas. Or. Clay s negotiation was carried on with Mexico in the third year of her revolutionary struggle while Spain regarded her As a revolted province and her armies were in pos session of Many of the strongholds of the country. What reason could i have had for supposing for an instant that a treaty with Texas after eight years of actual Independence with no mexican Soldier within her territory and subject Only to occasional Border interruptions could or would have met with opposition from him or his friends and meeting with no such opposition on the either or Van Buren or or. Clay and their friends would Puzzle a sounder assist than i profess to be to conceive in that possible War it could have interrupted he relations of those two gentlemen who Tood at the moment at the head of their respective parties and were looked upon by 11 As competitors for the presidency. It is Well known that when the negotiation for he acquisition of Texas was commenced and up to a period succeeding the signing of he treaty it was my confident conviction expressed to Many that it would from the circumstances i have stated receive the sup port both of or.

Wilt Ichii citizen to think for myself on All subjects and to act in pursuance of my own and it would require a total change of my nature in order to convert me into a Mere instrument of party. I would Appeal not Only to yourselves but to All my countrymen to say whether in the matters appertaining to our foreign affairs they anticipated More Success in the adjust ment of difficulties and in fhe formation of highly important treaties than it has been my a province to cause to be negotiated. Long ration of. The Ici acts of Tho administration. And principles of the Republican Karlyk and regarding his successor As in a great degree identified with what we esteemed As errors in general Jackson s adminis opposition was continued to him. The state and condition of the country also seemed to require change in the general and i ministration. Have you been disappointed in the Reform which you promised yourselves4 by going into the contest you demanded a rigid Economy to be observed in the Public expenditures. Have you in this been disappointed you required accountability on the Pait of All Public agents. Alas it not been fulfilled let the fact that a defaulter has become almost unknown for the last three years answer the question. You asked that a course of policy should be adopted which should purify and Reform the currency. Was the currency of the country Erver in a better condition let the rate of the exchanges be tween All parts of the country answer the in Quiry. Has the Day Ever been when the cur was sounder or the rates of Exchange lower you sought once More to put the mechanical arts in Active operation and to relieve Commerce from the blight which had fallen upon it. The first has revived and the last has unfurled its sails which now Whiten almost every sea. The paralysis which had fallen on Public credit to an extent so great that the poor sum of cuties which threatened most seriously the peace of the nity been lost for Commerce of the country and giving new markets to our agricultural and manufactured products. If the country has not reaped full fruition o Benefit from All the treaties thus negotiated it surely has not been the fault of the administration. The loss of two of those treaties through the action of the Senate cannot by be deplored by me As great Public calamities by the treaty with the Gorman states w had opened the Way to a com Merce with of people in our t tobacco rite and lard at duties on Rice and lard greatly reduced not however look exclusively to my i wishes which would have led me imme Lle y to retire from the contest which no longer to a possessed of an object of much further attention but i was a Liberty to do so without first consult lib such of any most prominent and Stead 15 of sends As i could most readily Confer i men who had shared with me in much the abuse which i bad encountered and old partially have participated in All the Oquay if and which in the future i to Roc. So far As i have bean Able i consult them they have yielded their As i to the course which my own judgment at proper and i now announce to of was offered to european and7 american capitalists without our being Able to find for it a purchasers has away and a Well supplied exchequer gives evidence not Only of the expansion of of the stable basis on Bieh rests the pub Lic credit. The very Stock for which no bidders could at one time be found now read ily commands in the Market an Advance of fifteen or Twenty dollars in the Hundred. In the mean time i submit it to you. To say whether the principles of the Republican party have not closely observed in All tha has been done. Did those principles require that we should. Recommence a new Cycle o Twenty years tha predecessor of which Bank of the United states had fulfilled in 18 on tobacco the e the. Power of a constitutional majority in Tine mating of a treaty is a Doc Trine for the first time advanced and having Lio Lounda Tien in Point of fact. I regard the preservation of the Union a the first great interest. I equally disapprove of All threats of its whether they proceed from the North or the South. The Glary of my country its safety and its Prosperity alike depend he who would contemplate its destruction even for a moment and form plans to accomplish it deserves the deepest anathema of the human race. I believed and still believe that the annexation of Texas would add to its strength arid serve to perpetuate it for Ages yet to come and my Best efforts while. I remain in office will be directed to Secu ring its a acquisition either now or at a future Day. Whether any efforts will Avail to secure this object since the rejection of the treaty remains still to be seen. I abandon Al Hope upon the subject if it shall be esteemed necessary to obtain for it approx every state. The Case rarely occurs thit any treaty receives the unanimous approval of the Senate. I have been called upon in Justice to my self to make these remarks in with viewing from the position in which my friends had placed me. I l might present other inquiries growing out of the course of the administration both in regard to our Domestic and foreign relations As to which principles have been maintained which May arrest the at Tention of future and even Remote administrations but let what i have said suffice. A that i ask of my countrymen is a can did review of my acts and an impartial comparison of the condition of the country now with what it was three years ago. I Appeal Isrom the vituperation of the present Day to pen of impartial history in the full Confidence that neither my motives nor my acts will Bear the interpretation which has Brj sinister purposes been placed upon them j John Tyler.

If it had beep charged that the adminis and with a stipulation for the free admission f Cotton while we had agreed to receive a somewhat reduced duties articles from1 Thos tates which entered into the most limited of Petori if at All with a few similar Arti Les of american product. The treaty was attic ulary interesting from the fact that or the first time after repeated struggles on he part of my predecessors to accomplish reduction of duty on tobacco the govern rent had succeeded in doing so. It was negotiated under resolutions originating with he and with the presumed auction Tif Congress who had raised As it is believed the Mission to Vienna from a second o a first rate Mission with direct reference o the tobacco interest and also Iriate a sum of Money some years ago to Swirble the executive to enable the executive to employ an agent in Germany to acquire information As to the tobacco Trade the ser vices of which agent had Only ceased a Short time prior to the negotiation of the treaty. My Hope still however is that the benefits of the the treaty and the treaty not be lost to the country. I think it proper to add design to deprive the House of representatives of any rightful and constitutional action Over the subject which it might properly exercise. It was on the contrary my intention to have submitted the treaty and All papers calculated to elucidate it to the House of representatives if it ration was pro fated by the ambition of securing the greatest Boon to the country and the whole country in the acquisition of a territory so important in itself and so inseparably connected with the interests of every state in the Union and every interest of the Union i would have plead guilty without a moment of hesitation. I confess i Felt ambitious to add another Bright Star to the ame rican Cou Stellarton. It would have been a source of Pride to me if that measure had been carried to have witnessed from the retirement that awaits me the annual expansion of our Coastwise and foreign Trade and the increased Prosperity of our agriculture and manufactures through the rapid growth of Texas which would Hataj billowed the ratification of the treaty. Yell i freely confess that this would have furnished mean unfailing source of gratification to the end of my life. I should have seen also the Union of the states becoming stronger and stronger through their reciprocal affection local jealousies suppressed Andi fanatical so Hemes and schemers alike prostrate. I should have witnessed the blessed results of our federa Tive system As it embraced the finest coun try in the world and brought under its influence a people devoted like ourselves to the maintenance and preservation of free govern ment. This was the kind of ambition which prompted the negotiation of the treaty. Its ratification was the sole Honor which i coveted and All i now desire. What Sinis Ter motives could have originated the negotiation at this time that did not exist in 1827 what was there now to have rendered a treaty infamous which did not exist then if it be said that we treaty of limits with Mexico i ask if in 1827, we had not also a treaty of limits with Spain we had recognised the Independence of Mexico and Herefo Rej virtually claimed that we had a perfect right to treat with her for the annexation of Texas and in fact if we had so pleased for Mexico entire. Eight years ago we recognised Texas As Independent and surely our right to negotiate with her implied no Faith than a 1827 to negotiate with Mexico for her. The idea that because of the existence of a treaty of limits with any nation we must forever thereafter deny Tot All parts of the territory of such nation the right of revolution or can Only excite with an american citizen a smile. Was it deemed necessary in 1827 to consult the states to consult the Senate or to consult the House of representatives or the people War it considered necessary to obtain the assent of every state As. Would seem now to be proposed before forming a treaty of. Annexation if the assent of every slate ii necessary then May we bid Adieu to the prompt it Olen prevention of a potato failure. By Jtj. James Cairo bal doot Wigton. With the remarks in the last and Prece Ding quarterly agricultural reports o n the failure of the potato crop i quite agree and have experienced the propriety of the advice to Plant unripe Ned seed. My seed potatoes last year 1842 were raised before they were perfectly Ripe and i have had no nearly All the seed j planted this Ever was the Small unsaleable tubers planted whole rejecting the very smallest. The crop was very healthy and productive. In deed i have never seen a failure where Small potatoes uncut Are used for seed and i to Lieve this uniform Success to arise from the Small potato being unripe when taken from the ground. This opinion rests on the As sumption that All the Small potatoes of a crop have not reached maturity when the rest of the crop is Ripe As being the last formed. If this be so it strengthens the common Opin Ion that the less ripened potato of the up land districts makes the Best seed. But at the same time we see How Good seed maybe had without the trouble or expense of a change from a late District if we either Plant the Small potatoes of our or raise abortion for seed before they have reached of agriculture. -10 information foe. The Shoemakers Theodore late of new Jersey once rendered his name memorable among the Shoemakers o f Newark and for his kindness to them and heir families they owe him an Especial regard. It appears that the Shoema kers of Newark who were ground Down by their losses to less than living prices for their work mad t a strike and turned out in pro cession. Theodore Frelin Huyben then counsellor at Law volunteered against them and tried hard to convict them criminally of being rioters and conspirators. This kindly act of his is so Well remembered in Newark that even the most violent whigs who Are shoe makers will not support him at the coming jealousy is in some sort rational and just it Aims at the preservation of a Good which belongs or which at least we think belongs to us whereas envy is a frenzy that cannot Bear the Good of others.
