The National Gazettesays; "Mr. Van
Buren continues it, (the Specie circular)
to prevent the "Western and South West

which the surplus revenue in their hands
would bo in danger of being lost."
Really this Van Buren should be lynch
ed for this oppressive, cruel act, What,
take measures to prevent a total loss of
the people's money? A measure too,
which has a tendency to stay the wild
course of. tho mammoth Mrchants of no
capital, and to check the mad career of
the ' speculator? It is too intolerable.
Rather than to endanger ono farthing of
tho money of tho millionaires, he. should
let the money of the people go to the

TION ! ! so lustily, because under Gen.
Jackson's administration some of the
pampered, corrupt, federal office holders,
who had held tho situation for a score of
years, were removed from the stations
they had dishonored. . We do not com
plain at this, but mention it that tho peo
plo may know what heartless, hypocrit
al demagogues, these whig praters nrc.
They branded the' democratic party with
the appellation of -the spoils parly.' Who
deserves the title? As soon as they nre
"clothed in a little brief authority," they
set about exercising it, nnd that to the ut
most deyroe even dead men are not ex
empt from their vengeance. At a sitting
of the common council of N,, York it was
proposed to removo a Mr. Lyon, a keep
er ofa city prison, when the council was
informed that tho person they were about
to removo was lying a corpse. But a
vote was taken viva voce to removo tho
dead man and every, whig voted to remove
him. " ,

The Editor seems to think that tho un
fortunate situation of the deaf and dunmii-
is made a subject of derision by thos ; loss
unfortunate- Ho says,. "And being
doomed to itsuse.ftheir language of sig is)
we can only raise our condition by alien

and deride our isolated condition." We
are not willing to think so meanly of man,
as' to believe that he enn have any lecl

deprived of one of the greatest, blessings
which is conferred upon man. , Yet wo
think it iiay be a good thing for this un
fortunate class to form a siparate commu

understood by their fellow men, is a great
hindrance to their prosperity, which
would be- obviated were thev to form
themselves into a separate community,
where al! understood their language.
