Why every Democrat should -ole for
Van Buren.-ecauese. from a poor f'riemi
less, and unaided boy. who labored during
his youth as a hirelitng on a farm. he rose
to the highest office in the world, by his
owen mrits. and by his own ereriions
thus proving that no matter how poor
a nirn he, in this country, he many rise in
the highest distinction, if he pleases, by
liq good vonduct and intelligence.
Because from his earliest youth he has
gone for his country with zeal and energy.
All the principles ofthe Democratic part%
have ever found in him a supporter and :U
champion; while all the federal guil-traps
and falsehoods have been by him as
;taunchly aind effectively opposed.
Because. although the unceasing object
of federal virulence aid rage, they have
neither been able to detect one blot in his
public character, "to mingle admiration or
to craitify haired."
Because, he has always raised his voice
against the onward strides of the money
Because, he has never hesitated about
avowing himself against the madness of
the Aolitionist, and as utterly oppsoed
to all theirschetnes.
Beenncese. ie has never shrunk from an
avow tal of his political creed. His' letter
to Sh- rod Williams and his whole history
prove that he is not a lunatic nder the

that his own enemies. placed. by their

at his disposal, as the sitew of expected
U ar, and anthcrised hiat to raise an armty

Because, in all his puhlie transactions,
no vote of censure wacs ever preferred
against him, on aeroneta of neglect, mnal

ENERGY oF CHARACTER.-EneTgy of
character is the philosopher's stoge, 9f his
life. and shouldI be.. engraved upon every
heart-it is that which has peopled the
temple of fame-that which has filled the
historic pages with great names, and the
.civil and military world-that which has
brought a race from barbarism, drawn. the
veil from science, and d.eveloped the won
Idronus powers of nature-it makes men
great. and makes men rich. First or last
it brings success. Without it Webst*r

he was 'inch attached ; the ieeper got
drunk on'e day. and, as the captain never

to be forged ; the grating was rigged on
the main deck, opposite Prince's den, a

his couch, and got as nenr to his friend as
possible ; on beholding his hare back, he
walked hastily round the den, and when
lie saw ifie hioatswain inflict the first lash;
his eyes sparled with fire. and his sides re

gory knots close.to the lion's den, his fury
becatme tremendous, he roared with a.
voice of thunder. shook the strong bars of
his prison, as if they had hen osiers, and
finding his efforts to break loose unavail

most terrific that it is possible to conceive.
The captain, fearing thai he might break.
loose, ordered the marines to ldad and pre

rage. and at last the captain desired the
keeper to be cast ol 'and go to his friend'
