have given birth to a very useful (but liillieito
occult) arilhinotical rule, by which they mo cn.
abled to demonstrate, in a manner entirely satis
factory to themselves, this odd proposition, thut
(ewer units are contained in tho number 39 than
in the number 13! And tho foregoing result is
reached with greater mathematical precision thnn
the sophomore, by the aid of "the black board,"
tan wade through the protracted series of ratiociii
ntion in tho "Pons Asinorum." Ever since 1S29,
this singular doctrine of "Retrenchment and Re.
form," agreeably to the ncus arithmetical rule,
has been the order of the day, find the stern prin.
ciples of a most rigid economy in every branch of
the public service have been rigorously cnlorceu
according to the new rule.
But, sir, the subject of "reform" is of u char
acter loo grave to be Ireated in this w.iy. It
would appear that it had never ocuined to the
reformers, that having come inlo power through
the "hue and cry" of extravagance, it was their
highest duty, in conducting tho affairs of tho Ciov.
ermrieni, to sqnnic their practices in accordance
with the doctrines they had so boisterously advo
cated. On the contrary, they seem to have fir
gotten nil that had ever been promised on the sub
ject of Retrenchment and reform, for, in almost
every department of the Administration, the ex
penditures have been increased two, and in some
of them four fold. This has been the case in an
eminent degree in rejrard to tho expenses for the
improvement of the President's grounds: you will
be pleased to bear in mind that in tha year IS '20,
the sum of !jj.),6G 5 had been appropriated for fin
ishing the fences, graduating and improving the
public grounds, and that they had thus been placed
in good condition immediately prior to the advent
of the Retrenchment Administration. Now, a
gentleman without experience in the practices of
ihese reformers, would be disposed to believo that
they had not the boldness or thu audaucity to de
mand money lo perfect a work which had already
been finished in a plain substantial manner.
Hold, Mr. Tyro, until you have first obtained a
matriculation in tho doctrines of "Retrenchment
and Reform" as understood by the prcsmt Admin
istration. In, the meantime bo good enough to
turn to books of U. States statutes for the bust
eleven years, and you will there discover not less
than ton several acts of Congress, appropriating
large sums of money to improve the President's
grounds, ecc. I will now present the committee
with a list of those laws:

1 1 ore we liuve, sir, llic enormous amount ot :V.3,

reformers, in erecting stables, building dwarf u a'il

lor the palace saloons. 1 i:o President's gr iuihK
contain about twenty acres. Our pseudo reformer
have, therefore, expended on what they pleased to
call "iinirorcinrrits" an average of l. VM lo per
acre, or )s3,(05 0i per untiiim, since tha nnwly 'in
vented arithmetical rule of retrenchment and reform
has been put into successful operation- An I yet
they have tha effrontery to ceinand an additional
appropriation of 3,00") by thn bill now under con
sideration. Some of tho improvements or altera
tions introduced by the reformers are of a charac
ter truly novel. You will remember that, hy the
act of the SJjth of February, thu sum of
ijwOOO was appropriated for -levelling," grading,
&.C. the President's square, and that tlie Aduiinis
tration of that day took measures to carry into ef
fect the intention of Congress by digging down the
knolls, and by Oiling up the hollows, und in this
manner levelling or making plain and flat the sur
face of the ground. Uut, after all, Mr. Chairman,
"variety is the very spice of life, "and so thought
our reformers. The survey of smooth lawns and
gently sloping meads, covered with rich coats of
white and red clover und luxuriant orchard grass,
made no delightful impression on their eyes. No,
sir; mere meadows aru too common to gratify the
ruliued Usta of an exquisito with "sweet sandy
uhikcrs.M Ho must have undulations, "beautiful
rnuund'', and other contrivances," to ravish his cx-
altud and elhernul soul. Hence, tho rufotimr
have constructed a number of clever sized hills,
every pair of which, it is said, was designed to re
semble and assume the form of an an Amazon's
bosom, with a miniature knoll or hillock on it
npex, to denote the u pie. Thousands of tin
People's dollars have been thrown awtty on these
silly fancies, which are belter adapted to please
the sickly and vicious lusto of palace dandies, than
:o gratify the simple eye of plain, republican free
men. Although, from the earliest feudal times, all
kingly establishments have been distinguished for
llin extent nnd magnificence of their Mulls for the
"voyul steeds" yet until the occasion of our reform
crs to the administration of the Government, sta
bling formed no appurtenance to the Presidential
nulace. Lut the predecessor of the present incum
bent, with soma other singular notions, Imd an ar
dent love fir thu horse race. His fleet coursers,
eonccipienlly, must be provided for ; stalls mut be
prepared, where they might be fed, lodged, sumptu
ously clothed, and waited upon by pitmen grooms
appointed to thut service. Ha 'its-.uined lite re

GENERAL HARRFOX'S OPINIONS ON
Wo proini.sed, some time since, to write lo
General Ilurrison, nnd procure from him a reitcr
ation of his foiuicily expressed opinion, as lo the
powers ol Uongiess to nliolish slavery in the
Suites and tho District of Columbia. In compli
since with that promise, nhout the 4th of June,
we addressed him a letter hy mail, nnd on the
y-id Juno we cnelesed a letter to ('ol. Charles S.
Todd, of Cincinnati, with rerpiest that ho would
ih I vcr it. Wo now have it in our power to lay
before the public the response to our impiiiy, and
we take especial pleasure in saying that it is nil
the South desirps. We need say nothing of Col.
Todd, he is well known ns one of Gen. Harri
son's favorite aids during the Into war, he has en.
joyed his confidence; in n high degree ever since,
and ho is at this time Sole editor of the Cincinna
ti Republican, the accredited und achowledged
oinm of the Old Hero.
Loeo-focoLsm may now do its worst entrench
ed upon the ramparts of the Constitution, tho vet
craiu hero of Tippecanoe nnd the Thames can
defy its power and laugh lo scorn its puny eflbils
to deprive him of the conlrleriec and affections of
the .South. rut to the letter. Hero it is:
I'lNeiNN-ATi, July Gth, 1340.
Mi Dear Sir: Your favor of tho 22d June,
with its enclosure, has been received, and it was
handed over to General Harrison. I presume
your fit letter was not reecivd, as tie did not
speak of it.
His correspondence is so extensive that he
has authorized vac to say o ynu in reply, that he
cn'crtuinn s'ill the.' opinions contained in the Utter
lo Mr. Sloo, to which you have referred, and that
as you have probably, bv this time, seen his lalo
letter to -Mr. Lyons of Richmond, Virginia, lie
supposes you will need no further cvidonco of his
opinions on thai subject.
The affidavit to which you allude was pro
iiouticcd in our paper by authority of lien. Hani
son as utterly without tiny foundation in truth.
No such conversation ever took place. If any
thing luilher occurs on th s .subject 1 will write to
We look with anxiety to Louisiana, where the
election commences to day. The result there
may effect our cause in Kentucky, Indiana. Illi
nuis, Missouri and 1 eiine.ssee. Matters look
well over the Union. The discrepancy about the
reply to ilr. Kauttolpti s attnek in the henote in
lbO shall bo explained, if necessary, soon as
iIr. JJra!e rcturnss horn tha JSorthern part
this State. Yours truly.
CHARLES S. TODD.
W.m. II. M'Caiidle, Esq.
Here then the matter is compressed into a nut
shell. General Harrison authorizes Col. Todd
to say that ''ho still cnter.'ains the opinions con
tained in his letter to .lc. Muo.'' What aro those
opinions? A referenco to the letlcr itself will
ahow that lie assumes the stiongesl possible ground
in favor of the south, und denies to Congress the
right to interfere with slavery in any manner
cither in the States or tho district of Columbia.
Hui hero is the letter itself. Lot every man read
il. 11 deserves to Oo printed in characters ol cold,
and pluced in every house in the south'
Cincinnati, 'JOth Nov. 1630.
My Dear Sir:
"I answer the qnotion yo:t proposed lo me this

THE GREAT HUMIWUG Eil'S ADDRESS TO
THE PEOI'LIi (Jr MISSOURI.
"Of nil who office filled unfairly, none
"Could plead excuse ; he least and last of all .'"
Ilavinr, in two preceding numbers discantcd at
considerable length, and exposed (I hope) with a
good degree of clearness, the pnlpaltlc chicaner'
uml tlisguiseil ileception, liy wlucli tne writers tu
this address would fain clear up the charges npi n
which this corrupt administration stands indicted
before the tribunal of the people, I now beg leave
to call the attention of that snmo tribunal to son, n
other portions of tho defence which has been mine'.
in order that its contemptible intrigue and pitiml
lameness may meet a conclusive exemplification.
I rom the lact lluii mere exists between all the
dilferent diversified interests of the people, a medi
ate or imtncmale connection; and worn Hie tact tin. t
between the various departments of trade, com
merce, and industry, a mutual dependence is judi
ciously interwoven, the subject ol Hie circulating
medium claims a high pre-eminence among IIiomj
topics which excite and div'uln the political world.
The currency of the country and tho fiscal opera
tions of the government arc branches ol our civil
and national polity, which will at all limes absorb,
to a greater or less extent, iho thought and atten
tion of the public mind, b'o intimately connected
with tiiese brandies ol our political economy aro
iho agricultural and commercial interests of tho
nation, that if there is cYrttiigemriit. and depres
sion in one, a reciprocal aim luminal uerangeuieni
may be found in the other. Every man who has
intelligence enough to know that the sun sets in thu
west, does now know, ami if he has the least claim
to moral integrity, will now acknowledge thnt tho
irenhitmg medium ot this country, and hence aWo
the vital interests of the people, are at this time la
bouring under extreme and unparalleled embarass-
meat. Isever helore in tho financial history ot this
'overnment was there such universal, and at the
same time so extreme derangement in the dilferent
branches of our national trade and domestic inter
course. And notwithstanding the incessant and astound
ing clamors w ith w hich the public par, for tho last
twelve years, has been almost deafened about tha
great quantity of gold and silver which the mea
sures of the administration would be fruitful, tho
condition of the country nou presents the sad and
deplorable spectacle of an cxtreino and unexampled
scarcity of both ! And equally clamorous and im
posing have been the exultation and promises which
men in power have used, to quell public murmur,
in regard to "better currency, better times:" and
now that their darling financial policy, and tho
whole scope of their measures are in full blaze all
over the Union, the palpable and undisguised faets
of the case ure, that the American people, at any
time of their history, never experienced a more
mirthless and,Jcranged currency, and never witness
ed mure ruinous and depressing times than they do
:' this juncture. These facts ao but to be ex
pressed to receive general assent ; for they aro as
self-evident as tho maxim that "sparks fiy upwards."
Hence tho Missouri delegation, feeling that tho so
vereign indignation of an insulted people is shak
ing the pillars of their power, have " stationed
themselves near the 1 resident, ' as it ho could sava
them (why, ho can't save himself!) and have wroto
out tho long circular, for tho " tens and hundreds
of thousands who want information" which pur
ports to set lortn the reasons, "why and wherefore"
tor the "present stagnation in business, decline ot
prices nnd scarcity of money at it is called!" As
it is callea, say they !! Well, who calls it 1 What
class of citizens is that who say that there is " a
stagnation in business, a decline in prices, and a
scarcity of money 1" What class is it who knou-s,
and feels, and says, that there is "a scarcity of mo
ney j" it is an classes labourers, mechanics,
merchants, traders, farmers, doctors, lawyers and
all, meet upon the one common ground, indepen
dent of political predilections, and agree thut there
surely is "a scarcity of money." All classes of ci
tizens agreo to this, except one class, and, as isex
emplilled in the words of this circular, that excepted
class 13 that "big class"' (to use a school-room
phrase) of ijfi ce-ho!ders, who spell first, read first,
write nrst, and eat tirst !
1'hcy are in tho receipt of fixed salaries, and
though plague, and famine, and pestilence were to
weep, i mo a sirocco over tlie land, anil tlioucli the
people were thrown prustrate and eround to dow-
tier by the ruinous and destructive policy of a cor
rupt auministration, tney, Irom their peculiar situa
tion, stand alcof from the storm, and feel none of
its ravages; because, come vhat may, the hard dol
lars must be counted out to them for their services,
no tlilleretice whether those services were nroduc-
tive of benefit or injury ! We need not, therefore,
be astonished that they should "statiun themselves
near the President," and With their hands on tin?
Treasury of the nation, set up a hideous and in
sulting mockery, at the evils which alllict the peo-
ptu. jjul u iii ue tisioinsnea, n mat same peo
ple, who are thus made the butt of the ridicule and
contempt of men who fatten upon their industry, do
not rise up in meir sovereign majesty, and burl
from power and from station, those who transcend
the limit of their delegated authority ; and those
who thus openly disgrace the high seats to which
their misplaced confidence has elevated them !
liut upun what do tiiese ofiiceholdcrs predicate
"the present stagnation in business, the decline of
prices, and the scarcity of money as it is called1."
Upon their own wild and chimerical policy 1 Ono!
no! The Hanks ! the Uanke the Banks!!! O!
those wicked, swindling, fraudulent, liritish Fede
ral Whig, Abolition Ranks!! Olhow they do
disturb the peace of society and derange the dear
alfairs of the dearer people !! What must be done!
Only try and convince "democratic credulity" that
tho Whigs are the authors of the evils, and we
will escape public vengeance ! That's all !
Alter a party has been given the reins of gov
ernment wholly und soiely in consequence of their
premises of retrenchment and reform ; after thev
have destroyed the best currency the world eve'r
saw ; nfier they have erected upon its ruins the
Statu l"ii uli tjucn, nnd after lunding and puffing
tiiese banks for years, nnd telling the people that
they " will answer all the purposes of the late U.
States Haul;," I usk the thinking and caniled men
of t io country, if it is not an insult to their under
derstaiidings for these partizans of .Mr. Van Ru
ren to now come forward and plead that their policy
is not at the root of these evils; but that tha Ranks!
tho Vlnr Ranks ! are entirely nnd wholly culpa
ble ? If the improvident and tmwiso administra
tion of the Ranks spread confusion in all the cha
in Is of liiissncial intercourse, who, under heavens,
I ask, initio those L'anks ! Let the gentlemen
ponder that question. To throw together in a few
words the practice and policy ot tho men iu power.
In the lirst ptuee they destroy our national cur
rency; violate law and constitution, and withdraw
the fi'deiul rt venue from the treasury ; distribute
it U7n7r.'--ifi,jnr the N'lufti Banks ; issue circu

tho banks to suspend and lime that their whole sys
tem has exploded (as they were told it would ex
plode) und scut "red-hot ruin" abroad in Iho land:
and aoa; tlmt th ir consummate fully and wickedness

Now, is tuij to! that's ihe uuestion 1 Not one
