Democratic Wkhig Aiociatioi in Phlla
delpla. -This Associution reeently assen
bled in 'hiladelphia Josiah Randal.
Esq. presided. The Hon. John Sergeant
responded to a call, and urged the Whig-<
to prepare for the June State Convention.
-l.-. S. concluded amid the cheers of the
meeting. The Hon. Win. C. areston of
South Carolina, was-loudly called for, and
addressed the assembly. We copy the
following speech of the Honorable Sena
tor from the United States GUzette.
."Mr- Prestoh expressed the highest de
gree of pleasure which he felt in once more
meeting his Whit rethrdu of the f-ity of
Philadelphia. It is now. he said, five
years since he had visited this city on the
invitation of tbose wh on he had now the
pleasure of meeting. Ife then stood side by
side with men whose lead he was proud to
follow -his dtstingaished colleaguea sena
tor from Mf-sissippi, a St nator from Al
bama, a Senator from Louisiana. and
membersof the House of Representatives
from *his own state. Those gentlemen
were now mostly estran-ie.from him. It
,were unnecessary to go into causes but they
bad been such as to leave -him standing
alone.the solitary Whig member of the U.
States Senate. south of the Potomac.
But the cause which lie supported w as
the same now, that it was in 1S34-he
stood upon the saue ground, inaintained
the same principles. and battled aoainst
the sime abuses of .power and executive
usurpation now, that he did then; and, by
the help of God, he would mantain that
ground and fight that battle to the last,
flinch who might.
He alluded to the severe contest which
the Whigs in Congress had been comp.-l
led to sustain. It required all their exer
tiounsto keep the reiinous measures of the ad
ministration in check; they could do little
else; they had prevented much evil by de
feating the SubTreasury Bill, but they
could do no more. Even unader the defeat
of that hill-its suspension. for it was not
yet killed, only scotched-the country be
gau to rise from its depressei -ate, aad to
exert herenergies. But if this Were the
case when the career or the present ail -
ministration has been only checked, what
might not be expected when the Whigs
should displace the present powers that he,
and be able to act-efliciently an.l to carry
outiheir own conservative principles!
Mr. Preston urged upon Ihe Whigs, the
necessity of beingUNITED. They must
sustain the broad principles of Whigisn.
the otily ism, hesaid, by which they could
sustain themselves,- If they were united,
they might look forward to certain triumph.
Tennessee, he said, was with its. Geor
gia was with us, North- Carolina, Loui-i
ana and Mississippi were with us, and Vir
ginia was coming, if she had not already
come; and what he asked, had brought
thetm to us? The principles-the broad,
the catholic, the conservative principles of
Whigism. These principles. had sent a
Wise of Vir;inia, a Dawson. of Georgia.
a Prentiss, of Mississipi. a Bell, of Ten
nessee, and a Stanley, of North Carolina,
- toCongress. and nobly did they justatu
the glorious cause.
Yes, he repeated, it is Whig ptinciples.
4 nd Wliig principles alonie, which h.td
brought so inany of the Southern St ates to
sustain that banner, and to array them
selves against this destructive ad mni-itrat

Mr. Clay, he said, was a noble man.
He, himself.ecame into the Senate witbr
strong prejudices against him. He bad
warmly opposed hitm long before lhe knew
him- In the Senate he fouand himself by
his side-he watched him with a suepicious
eye-but his prejudices had gradually
given way before the power of truth, and
from being a suspiciousopponent. he would
frankly confess he had become an admtrer
of the mail. It was not his eloquence.
that was well kiown-it was not the great
services which he had rendered his country.
and which must he familiar to all, that
won him; but it was his noble nature
his fearless.support of wvhat his judgment
told him was figt, regardless of conse
quences, th.$' called forth his admiration.
No man ever looked dlanger in the aye
with a more ' determined, unblenching
countenance, when in the pursuit of truth,
or the sustainment of right, than Henry
Clay, (great cheering.)
* I avow myself therefore for Henry Clay.
I will not say 1 believe the Whigs will be
defeated unless they rally as one man, in
a solid phalanx. I know it, it is inevita
ble. But if they do llhus rally, their tri
umph is certain, May it be my lot to
congratulate'yoihereafter on your victory,
rather than condole with you and tnourn
with the country in its defeat.
Whben Mr. Preston mentioned the name
of Henry Clay in connexion with theWhig
banner, there was an otutburat. of feeing
that , ld of the hold whichthat great tman
had on the alrections of the mneeing.
Three times three they cheered, and then
asked for "one more" before they allowed
the speaker to proceed.

For the Edgefeld Advertiser
Mr. Editor.-[ have told you that I had won
a victory of eighteen years war. What sini
des the conquest of a war utnless the General
k .ows how to reap the benefit of his victory!
What signifies the building of a town if the
builder does not know how to enjoy the results
of his suiccess? I have also told yon that I have
aceotpished great designs, and others were
ftteningr upon the fruits 'of them. andkthat an
ovirhatli-g -night be :ndispensable. Many
years experience has given me full proof' that I
can plan and execute great works but not en
joy the benefits of theta myself; because while I
aplaming and executing with both body and
mnd zealously, I cannot guard myself against
the ingenuity of others from dispossessing me
of the same when accomplhshed. The world
will have it, that were I to live 6ifty years more,
the course of nity pursuits would be the same
the worbit will find itself mistaken.
Thu first rule of nature tells us that we mtust

me as one of the Commissioners Imray, how
ever, do one thing. Intending to visit.Europe
this sprimng, I might bring a nuimber of my
countrymen to serve as laborers in that enter
prize. The object oft that visit is in part to pu,
in operation that direct trade~ between this
country and Europe which seems so natural,for
we have th.- samte seas, and use the same ships
a those of the North. For that purpose seve
rl conventions were held itn the Union. at
which many speeches were made,6fne diumert

I p resume it will not be denied that Sunth
Caronta was the first Stato. and I the first man
that brotght this great enterprize to the vie w of
the Sounthernt people; for on the 19th day of
December, 1 835, the Legislature granted me
an act of incorporation to carry on this impor
