During this session of Congress, let a cornerstone

Mr Benton and Mr H right (bat especially the
latter) demonstrated, in their own opinion, with
mathematical precision, in Juno last, on the floor of
the Senate, that there would not remain in the trca-
aury, un iiiu xcl ui juuuury next, a surj.ius ui unc
dollar. While Mr Clay, without tho pretended nc- i
curacy ns to items, of his opponents, endeavored
to prove, that exclusive of tho United States Hank
stock, lliero must remain, about thirly-dght mil
lions of dollars. Now what is tho fact ? Lo and
behold, we are this day informed by the President,
in his annual message, that tho surplus will amount
to nearly forty -firo millions of dollars. It is against
such men and such measures thot we are to rally.
Hut it cannot he too often repeated, that the maimer
of their coming into power, is more alarming than
even the ruinous measures which they havo now
in progress. The assumption of the right, by the
President, to designate his successor, must bo re
buked, or the formality of an election, will soon
become too farcical to be practised. The attention
of every public journal in the country should be in
vited to the subject,

ho has not gone as far as the New York politic'ans
wished, and this opinion is, in soma measure con-
finned by Mr Van Huren's letter of acceptance to
tho Ihltimore nomination, in which he says "I
consider myself the honored iustrumciit, selected
by the frieuds of the present administration, to car-
