As we open the mail papers, from day to day,
from all sections of the country, wo are cheered
by the patriotic Gculimonl every where displayed,
from Maine to tho 1'loridas, and from the Atlantic
tu the furthest West. It may truly be suid of the
Whig cause, that all appears "full of courage mid
Elruigth." There is no mistake about the signs of
the times. The nomination nfGeu. Harrison is
displayed every where from the Whig papero,
thoso citadels and symbols uf the sunluucnls of the
people. It has become the gcncrbl and all perva
ding sentiment that ho is the only candidal that
can contend with Mr Van Buren, and every day
serves but to fort'fy the well grounded expectation
that Harrison and Granger will be elected Presi
dent and Vice President by overwhelming irwjori
tins of the people.
Look at the elections, that have just lorimnatod
in the leading Southern ard Western States : look
lit the results in Nurlh Carolina, Kentucky, Indi
ana, Mississippi, and Alatama. All iho.o Slates
voted for Geo. Jackson, but they have recently de
clared emphatically, that they are not for Van Hu

they ore not willing to be sold over, and transfer-

that he his acsuinad all these dn.cii. lie is tu fart
rll things in all men an advocate of slavery at
tho South ,t strenuous opponent at the North
nnd it m at lhi inuinont a matter of even doubt,
whether he in favor or opposed to slavery. What
rutianc can be placed in such an actor of all work.
j and such a professor of all snnlnnonts ? No man
i can trtit hnn, ami no man ought to vole for him.
Some pusillanimous iwiple, who am decidedly
opposed to Ins pieienx'ius, wo have heard reason
after this tort : "it is idle to attempt to oppovt
I Van Duron : he has been nominated by Gen. Jaik
j son, he has Iho supjiorl of all the opicc holders,
and what eni'i bo dinc I" Wi. will toll them what
can be done. In I bo llrst placu dismiss those wo
manish apprehensions, and bo prepared to go for
tho available Whig Caudidale, and nil will yet
be well. The very lacl that he ban been nomina
ted by thu existing President, ought to be sufficient
to incenre every litgh minded man every free cit
izen of this boasted free republic to vote ngninst
linn, cvon if thore wore but small hope of success.
This they ought to do on strict principle. Hut in
addition tu ihc( there is ovory reason to hope for
n brilliant termination of this Contest. The people
nro up and doing : ihov aro determined lu p-il
down usurpation. Van llutrn lias no claims upon
the eon.ldcnce ol' iho peop'e, while Gen. Hariisou
is not only high in their confidence, but pscsscd
of their deup ruulud allbctions. In short Gsneril
Harrison has the suno hold on the feelings of the
puiple of tho Middle, Southern and Western Stale
as (leu. Jaekaon once had. Certain people of ner
vous tempo! tiouut and morbid seesibihlj , may sneer
at this kind of of support, but nfler all it is a feel
ing that eleelH Presidents. It luul the effect to
elevntn Jackson, and it will bring iiliuit the olec
tiuil of Marri-Min. It is n popular seiiliuicnl, nnd
early should thu people uf MasscliUMjlts avail them
selves of iU omYv.y, in uiding to elect Gun. liar
lison, a m in who not only possusses linn availa

integrity, lu make u good Preauleu!. It is I here -foio
incumbent on thu Wings ul Massachusetts to
come forward promp'ly in su.ipoit of Harrison, us
the only available Wing eundldulc, elect him I'les
idenl, and IrtM to God mid a good eausu for the
beneficial lesults to the Republic.
Wo beg the attention of every render to lln; fol
lowing remarks Irom the National lutelligimcer ;
they cn.no from a man of much intelligence, nck
uovvludged candor, and uinluiibled honesty tliuy
are the remarks, tint ul u demagogue, but or a vet
cran in the polit'ns of the nation, always firm to his
tri,ttt.a "f.1 ri.l,r.i tr best int. uf 1110
"Like theeornl reefs in the Southern seas, while
all was yet deceitfully smooth uml placid on the
surface, the danger" which increised in magnitude
so imperceptibly, that the first warning wo have
had of their exist unco is by harsh grating of it"
keel upon Ihein : it Is certain that, wilhin Ihu hist
few yearn, dangers hnvu been developed in iho op
eration of our system of government which were
never b.tfore suspected ; and that all these dan
gers are, when ttuced to their origin, rel'errible lo
the abuse of Uxcciitivo power and patront-ge, for
purposes cl ielly foreign lo nil the legitimate ends
of good government, and especially contrary
to the spirit of this Government. It is nu
purt nf ihu constitution of the United Stales that
the President shall, thioiigh the vein power, be
solo legislator for thu eounlry; much less, that
even such laws, as he will permit Congress to re
gister for hi in, shall be carried into execution only
at his pleasure, mid to such extent us he pleases.
It is no pail uf the Constitution that t'le President,
who is expressly n fused tho power of making war
tha. I, nevertheless, taking thu luw into his own
hands, set treaties which are the supreme law, at
utter defiance, and march thu armies of the United
Slalis into the territories of friendly Powers. Nor
is it any part uf the Constitution that the Execu
tive shall exercise any und ovciy power he pleases,
on Iho plea nf analogy tu powers exercised by the
Executives in either Governments difibrontly con
stilutud frum ours. Under the tolerated exercise
of such powers, wu may con'iuue to call our Gov
ernment a lle.it.blic, but il ia a despotism in every
thing hot u name.
"At the ensuing Presidential election, then, the
People of thu United Slates have a question to de
cide, of inuoh greater interest to each of theiu 'ban
any mere personal preference between the candi
date!1. Il is fur them lo decide whether they will
be directly iustrumeiilul ii. perpetuating those ubu

ilcd the first and second evenings ofthe dissuasion;
mid each speaker epokc alternately half an hour
each. Mr Thompson was supplied with papers ;
hi. table was til lumbered with documents, and he
was flushed with Ihe expectation of defeating Mr
Breckenhridge, for Mr II. had only hi pen urn and
paper. Mr Breckcnllndge stated that he had not
exacted a challenge of this nature, and was in a de
gree 'inprcpsrod for thd discussion ; but he fell
called upon lo defend loJ country, and the Ameri

garbled statements to mislead the minds of the au

deserted. Abolitionists were quoted, with a'l their
high wrought statement!.', in prow in what "a hor

negroes in ll.o slave tsr are. Indeed Thompson
faltered and paltered at nothing, flourishing away
