THE DEATH OF JEFFERSON.
Br T. If. SHIVERS, M. P.
u I have done for my country, and all man
kind, al! that I could do: anil nntw I roainn
rny twit, without fear, to my God, and daugh
ter iv my country. - Jefferson dying uvrds
The eloquent tongue is mute,
The eagle eye is dim;
He hears not thy salute
What is this world to him!
For though an earthquake rent
The mighty earth in twain.
And shock the firmament
He ijould not wake again!
All that was earthly, lies
Low in his grave beneath!
His heavenly part defies
The mightiness of death!
Then let the thunders roll,
The mighty cannons roar
They cannot reach his soul
Upon that happy shore!
All that be wished below
From mortal man was given-
What earth could not bestow
Is granted him in heaven,
For fed by Freedom's hand,
He grew from infancy,
The mightest of the land
His cradle, Liber...
The sunshine on the plains,
The cattle on the hills;
The heart that now complains,
The bosom that now thrills;
The joyous things of eaith,
The moon, the noon, the even
All, testified his worth,
As it is known in heaven.
He prayed but to survive
To see thnt Mesed day,
And God said, 1st him lire!
And Death then passed away.
And strengthened, soothed, sustained.
By that MrsTF.Rious Power,
He never more complained,
But mended from that hour.
His ftjih had power to cause
That v!iich as not to be,
And baffled Nittire. laws,
And flattered Destiny,
Hi soul was in the faith
Of living anchored fust;
And when he bowed to Death,
The time he wished was past.
He saw the Fields or Bliss
Spread out before his eyes,
A brighter world than this
The Heaven it Param.c
And, prophet-line be stood
UjKn the Mount or Time,
And aw beyond the flood
Ert rmtt sublime!
II 6 went not down cs one
Tht knew mortality;
But set, as sets the sun
Upon the far-off sea.
And though his lips are mute,
His eagle eye is dim
He hears not thy salute
We have the light of him.
The hand of God above
Let him along the way
Of never-dying love
To Everlasting day.
Bright as the eternal sun,
The Lord of Heaven, shall be
- The race thou has run,
Though all eternity.
Then snout for him no more
Cease now your revelry
For who can hail that shore
Which bouns eternity?
For in that far-off Lamp,
Beyond the reach of thought,
- He joins the Patriot Baud,
Who first for Freedom fought.

LETTER FROM COL. BENTON.
Washington City, June 8, 1841.
Drab Sir: Your, kind letter of the 4th
insU, in relation to the Democratic meeting
at Spring Garden, on the evening of the 3d,
and the resolve there adopted to hold a mee
ting of the Democracy of the city and coun
ty oi miiaaeipnia to form an association to
? remote my nomination and election to the
residency of the United States ;n the year
1 844, has been received, and whiid lam du
ly sensible of the honor done "me by these
proceedings, and extremely grateful for the
kind motives which induced them, yet I
roust "has tea to do every thing in my power
to arrest at the commencement a proceeding
which however honorable to me. cannot
ta my opinion be beneficial to the cause of
Democracy. Contentions for the first place
farra in all age and in all countries, been the
feme pf elective governments; and I have
been fully determined, ever since I have
fcemon the suae of public affairs to have
eelhinz to do with such contentions. 1 ha
always seen and now see, in the ranks of
the lAMDwatic party many eminent citi
zens wtw are worthy to fill th'j place of Presi
dent; and it is my purpose now, as it hat
been heretofore, to promote the election.
Mad U rapport the administration (if elected)
of soma of these citizens. Private letters
to dura-feet I have written to many friends
itWdUZereat parts of the Union, in answer
to their inquiries; and what I now write to
yog if nothing but a repetition of what I
have already said and written to many oth
ers. But while I cannot consent to be brought
forward for the Presidency, I am ready and
wMling to do all that I can for the cause of
Democracy. The times require the exertion
of all the friends of the cause, and mine shall
neither be withheld nor relaxed. We hare
gone back not merely to the Federal times
of General Hamilton, and the elder Mr.
Adams, but far beyond them to the Church
and State times of Queen Ann, and the Cor
poration and State time of the first and se
cond George; in a word to the Whig times
of Sir Robert Walpole; whose long, corrupt,
and pusilanimous Administration was a con
tinued practice of Tory doctrines upon
Whig professions, and the source and origin
of every curse which now effects the Eng
lish people. We have gone back to the
English times when the paper system, the
fundings vstem, the banking system, (as banks
of circulation, stock-jobbing, national debt.
taxes, paper money, loans for the
geneiation to spend, and for posterity, to
pay, . chartered companies, with exclusive
privileges, and monopolises and exemptions
from law, the South Sea scheme, and a thou
sand other cheating contrivances, were all
hatched into existence under the hot incuba
tion of Whig legislation. We have gone
back to the Walpole times, when corporations
began to treat with the Government as
equals, or to dictate to it as masters; when
submission to insult and depredation from
abroad, and tyranny to patriots at home, was
the practice and the policy ol the Adminis
tration; when the money was spent for par
ty objects, which should have been devoted
to the public defence; when, to preserve
peace, the nation was not put in arms, but
the minister placed upon his knees; when
good men were persecuted, and the bad wete
promoted; when nu'itary, fnavhl, and civil
officers were dismissed from employment
for voting against the minister, nnd In par
tisans put into olEce for voting for him; when
secret committees, composed of political
h:icks, were made inquisitors into the con
duct of thsir political enemies, and never
tailed to find what the minister sent them
to hunt for.
We have gone back to the times when
this, and such lis this was the, woik of the
English Government; and when a With; Ad
ministration pave all the originals of which
our Federal Whitis are now presenting us
with faithful copies here. In every thin',
Treat an I small, f.ireiun nnd domes! ic, legisla
tive and executive, the alpolo W liig mea
sures of the reij;n of George the Second,
are the measurers of our Federal Whig
here; and if the master spirits now in com
mand should have as long time to woik in, :is
their treat oriimd had in EngLuid, they
would probably succeed in giving us as much
deb, and taxes, as many paupers and pen
sions, and as many corporations to rule, gov
ern and bribe us, as the English people now
have, But I fancy the rei?n will not be
quite so Jong as that of the Walpole Whigs
in England that it will hardly extend to
twenty-five years ;& of this the masterspirits
seem to be a little suspicious themselves, and
therefore are ufur making haif irltile the sun
shin's." Haste to the wedding is the tune
to which they dance, double quick time is
the time of their step. Hence the rapid re
movals. Hence the hurrv in every thin'.
Hence this extra session of Congress, which,
in the brief space of half a dozen weeks, ami
under the fire of a solstital summer sun, and
amidst the sweltering heats of the dog days,
is expected to do as much as Walpole ac
complished in one of the seven years1 Tory
Parliaments of which he was the Whig au
thor. As a compensation, however, for do
ing so much in so short a time, Congress is
to be permitted to sink into the quiet and pas
sive condition of a bed of justice, (Iut de
justice) of the old French monarchy, for the
registration ol edict, or to realize, for the edi
fication of the American people, the me
taphysical conception of the dumb legisla
ture which gave so much celebrity to the
Abbe Sieyes. In a word, we are permitted
to vote upon the bills, without tcllinz the
reasons why or wherefore, which the mas
ter spirits prepare for us in secret, and lay
before us in public.
I consider myself called here to be pre
sent at the immolation of our Constitution,
and at the formation of a new Government
to be composed of Bank and State, in which
hank is to be master and State is to he slave.
