himself justified, under this particular Admin
istration, to refer to these old friends of his
school-dav memorr, and mention an inci
dent which was a characteristic of one of
them, and which commentators have con
sidered as one of the main causes of their
invincibility. He spoke of the Romans, and
of the Senatorial vote of thanks to the sur
viving Consul after the battle of Canna;, be
cause HE HAD NOT DESPAIRED OF THE RE

tory. This, Mr. B. said, was the incident
in the history of his old friends the Romans,
which he now took leave to recul to the re
collection of the Senate. And now for ap
plication of his historical incident. The ap
plication was to the American Democracy,
who had suffered a sort of Cannae defeat

public, and are already on the high road to
victory! We are called here, said Mr. B.
called to this extraordinary session as the

of the conqueror in barbarian times to re

to have the yoke fitted on our necks, and the
chains and manacles fastened to our hands &

our country pillaged by corporations, natives
and foreigners. We were called, and we
come not as slaves, but as Romans! not in
despair, but with hearts of courage, and

humiliation, but as to the field of glory and

The extern;.! party lac?ges of former t.'fres

General Government, severs now, as in ear
lier times, the latitui'inarinn from., hjs oppo

flunctuated alternately; it is a fallacy; there-!

being removed, the Federal party, as such,

The Difference. The same argument
that would make money fatter ihan specie
because it is lighter and easy to carry, would
also make lruirn jiacr shoes better than
leather, and the man who would justify the
establishment of a National Bank to supply
a currency, would also contend that we
should have a national bakery, where each
man should be compelled to get his bread,
and take such as he could get at the price
fixed by the owners ol the establishment,
whether they felt disposed to make it of bian .
or rye meal.
Power. If the banking power is such as
should be leared, on account of its great in
fluence on the actions or men governed by
interest, how much greater is that power for
by the Federalists to concentrate in one
institution force sufficient to control the
Honest Whigs give it Up. In the manly
letter of Silas E. Burrows, Esq., written to
the editor ot the "Commercial Advertiser,
the following passage occurs:
"We have fought for principles too high
to be reached by a clause in a Bank Charter,
which subject it is but honest to admit was
excluded from discussion generally by the
Whigs during the last contest. Uur oppo
nents desired to join issue on this subject,
but it was resisted almost invariably throug
out the land."
Who dare assert the question of Bank or
no Bank was settled by the result of the last
election? Jlonest Whigs say that it was not;
and if the Whig party were honest, they
would allow the question to go before the
people to be adjudged bifore the attempt
was made to thrust it upon us whether we
will or no. Dare thev do it? lb.

pROSPECTUS. The undersigned pro--
poses to publish a Democratic News
paper, under the title of the 'The Ini.f.x,"
to be edited in Washington City, and printed
in Alexandria, District of Columbia, three
times a week during tho session of Congress,
and twice a week the remainder of the year,
at five dollars per annum. Tic fifjt number
to be issued about the 1st of September het.
There is a demand for a paper of this des
cription, at the point indicated. The call is
creditable to the vigilance which dictates it,
and shows a proper appreciation of the exig
ency of the times. The critical condition
in which we find the great and permanent
interests of the country, resulting from an
extraordinary combination of men and cir
cumstances, all antagonist to the just and
abiding principles of the Democratic party.
and the injury lueiy to ensue Irom a system
of measures which there is every reason to1
bebeve that combination is about to cttab
lisli, will, we doubt not, insure the co-opera
tion of the true friends of the Constitution,
in all well directed efforts to resist it. So far
as the abilities of gentlemen high in public
confidence can be employed to effect this ob
ject, we have an assurance of their aid, nnd
rely upon tho Kepuuicans ol tlie surround
ing country for a corresponding evidence ol
their approbation and support.
We look upon the present as the most im
portant juncture for the re-establisbraent or
final overthrow of the Republican party,
which has occurred since the termination of
the last century. The celebrated report nf
