Ma. Ern-ron:-[t is truly gratif'ying to

The most learned of our Statesmen
conceive us to le in the midst of a
momentous crisis. The whole surface of
the union preseits to us one unkroken
uniform-and ardent struggle: a struggle
that involves the weightiest principles of
government, & the dearest right,. & privi
leges of the South: n struggle ir stpre

crats. And in offerin! a few considera
lions why the former shouil not triumlph.
I do not men to disparnuge the character
of General Harrison-their candidate for
Presidencv-but speak with due deflerence
to truth, hoth as resprets the polities of
himself. and his party: I am neither pre
pared to controvert, nor disposed t dotlit
the honest motives of those who at the for
mation of the Constitution, rallied around
the Executive to deIend it from the tram
nmel.l or the Legislative depart ment and
originated the principle of a loose construe
tion of the Constitution. to enlarge their
power, aid extract rights and privilezes,
despite the absence of aitial granut Cxpres-,

glish aristocracy, or the natural reveranee
of man for the ohil usages and iistit utions
of his ancestors. allbrd somerhing in vindi

objectionable may have been their design,
-the principle of a loose construetinn of the
Conistitution has produced. and justified
the adoption of laws repnginant to the let
-ter ail spirit of that instriment, and dis
astrots to the highest interest of the Soutth.
And this principle is the otily one com

great link that unites them uitler his b:a:

trincs that grow out of this principle atid
which is desigmed to he estabhlislted and

Eual rights, and favors, altam protec

ry member ofithe union, any investment of
corporntions with power and prerogative
suflicient to control the elective franchie,
and thus defy hoth Law staid Consti:ution,
must necessarily strike at the root of our
Liberty/, and sap the basisof this Democra

the master, aml the mister thte slave-the
supreme power of the people, the essence
of our Govertinent, having becn nturpaed
h0an ristocracy. A long a tid fair trial
also of the BankiU Itlstitution has proved
its incompetenev to keep safe and suind
the public aonevs. anti has developed the
corruption which aceruet to the country
front the facilitiec atid means of fr'aud and
specnlation that attendled the system. It
is preitmed therefore, that no frther pro
cens of reason is necessary to inflame the
people againsi such an institutiton. The
oith of their fathers to preserve, inviolate
the sacred chart of our ilierties, and the
obligation of which aith equally atlect all
who subequenttly come umler the auspi
