Politcal Elements at Work.
A gY.Le at the elements at work to
adminimter our gONvernnent reveals
three kinds. 1. Those acting pro
- grcssively under the Constitution. 2.
ThosI e acting conservatively, and 3.
Those ignoring the Constitution. The
first desire changes, progres.sive chang
vs, but, in aceordankeo with the provi
Siions of the Constitution. The socond
wish -to pteservo as long as possible the
f6gime already vitalized by the Con
t.itution, aid deprecate not only in
uovations upon the Constitution, but
eon upon the working of government
under that instrument. The last ig
noring the h16lin of the first, a; well as
' tihe mooring of the second, would cut
laose entirely from both and lanneh
upon the broad and trackless sea of
that governmient which knows no
gui(de but the caprices of the lement
ila power. This last is the party now
in Washington. Like Henry the
V I[ fthey would buru as heretics, those
who avow the authority of the fathers
of our governmnCIt, :ad hang as trali
tors those who own the authority of
our Constitution.

cite serious apprehensions ai to the
king's ulterior designs ; but it was
ilagil ified ten-fold by the public appre

with arms in his hands, ailiong a for

whom lihe washated in turn, was guil

wele exaggerated by report ; and, in

stranger had really committed, all the
offences of his English comrades were
set down to his account. From every
corner o.f the kingdom a cry aroso

forced themselves into private houses,
seized horses and wagons, extorted
money, and insulted women.
