Tho Catron Statement and Ylujer Don
The Union and American attempts to
rescue Jtuljre Catron from the unfortunate
position in which his partiality for his bland
old bachelor friend has involved him; but
the frail plank which it pushes to his Honor
will not sustain him, and his statement
. must go beneath the ware of the popular
disbelief. We do not intimate by thi3, an
impeachment of the credibility of the ven
erable occupant of a seat on the Supreme
Bench, but as we remarked in our first no
tice of the Judge's letter, we and the public
" are thoroughly convinced that Gen. Jack
. son' conversation was either wholly miscon
ceived or badly remembered. We suggested
that Gen .Jackson's proverbial politeness
may have led tne Judge to suppose, that be
cause the General did not enter into a con
troversy with him in the parlors of the Her
mitage concerning Buchanan's fitness, that
he assented to his earnest pleadings in be
half of his friend, when really nothing was
further from the conclusions of his singu
larly correct judgment of men, or the
wishes of his heart. The Ju.lge's partiality
for Mr. Buch.inan is well known, and we
may say that were it not known, it might
well be imagined. Even at the date re
ferred to, twelve years ago, so long had
both of them been encased in the vestments
of office, that they were fast becoming
what they have since passed into official
mummies, dead to every emotion which
fiuds a response in the public heart. Their
sympathy and attachment is easily account
But upon a matter so important we do
rot think that Gen. Jackson would have
permitted a mere point of politeness to
forbid a frank expression of his opinions,
especially when according to the Judge's
statement, the conference was called at the
instance of Gen. Jackson himself. With
this view we are driven to conclude that
Judge Catron left the Hermitage with an
entire misunderstanding of (Jen. Jackson's
conversation, or that his memory has played
h m false. And although we speak of a
high judicial diguitary, we cannot conceive
either of these results impossible. The er
raiut, though spotless itself, does not exempt
from the errors atul weaknesses so common
We have presented evidence which clear
ly proves that it wa impossible that Gen.
Jackson could have preferred Mr. Buchauau
as his choice for the Presidency, as well as
proof establishing that at the date of
Judge Catron's visit, Gen. Jackson still en
tertained the hope that Mr. Van Buren
would place himse f rectus in curia upon the
Democratic position on the Texas question,
while it is notorious that if he had done !
o, he was Gen. Jackson's favorite, as he '
was also Mr. Polk's, and that of the eutire j
partv. Admitting that in the conversation '
alluded to, (Jen. Jackson had intimated I
that in case Van Buren's Texas position I
rendered him objectionable as a candidate, i
it would be the duty of the convention to j
select another, he certainly could not have
indicated Buchanan. A reference to the j,
proceedings of the convention will show
that Buchanan commenced with four votes
and never obtained' more than twenty-six
on any ballot. Can any one supjiose that
if he had been known as Gen. Jackson's
preference that his claims would have re
ceived such cavalier treatment? Was Gen.
Jackson's influence with the Democratic!
party on the wane, that he could comm nd i
scarce a score of votes m its national con- i
vention? Impossible. He was all powerful j
then, and the world knows lhat at his die- !
taton Mr. Polk was nominated, lie was '
the only President, which the country ever '
i " f , . , l
had, powerful enouuu to name his successor. '
and he named two Nan Buren and Polk. '
His influence with the Democratic party i
- . , .i , ...
nominated tli-m,and his hold on the public
confidence vleited them. The ungrateful i
dependents on his favor had not then com- j
menced to intimate that "in moments or
irritation" he suffered ut.jiwt imputations to I
escape him, mueh Its had Democratic j
, orators aud newspaper rharged him with I
! falsehood aud tyranny.' No breath uf em-h !
' calumny bad then dared to leave the lips of j
' those who now uaull his reputation for !
Had he desired the nomination
of Buchutiau itifUadof that of Mr. Wright j
.Of Air. Polk, Mr. Buchanan, would have I
i letn uotuiuuted. But he never had such a j
tbouht. He hud read, with that sairacitT I

memorable cauvass in Pennsylvania. Gen.
Jackson was consulted, however, and only
gave his consent npon the compliance with
certain "terms." What these "terms'.' were
the public will perhaps never know, but
they show that Jackson had no confidence
in him, or he would never have imposed
them. Is it possible, Judge Catron, that
you could have heard Gen. Jackson express
superior confidence in such a man, or is it
highly probable that an overweening par
tiality, or a failing mpmory has misled yon.
Time, which has sprinkled its snow upon
your head, and graven his crows-feet about
your eyes, is a sad decayer of memory.
Bat the Union and American thinks our
article of Monday was dictated by Major
Donelson hiccself, and proceeds to quote
from the speech of Major D. of last year,
to prove that after the publication of
Mr. Van Buren's anti-Texas letter, General
Jackson had abandoned him as a candi
date, and thus seeks to overthrow by Ma
jor Donelson's testimony, our position, that
General Jackson preferred Van Buren, as
long as there was an opportunity for him
"to modify his views in regard to the an-
nexation of Texas." There is not a sen
tence in the extract which it publishes from
Major D's speech, which conflicts with this
position. Major D's speech represents
Jackson as saying to him, "if we cannot
get Texas with Mr. Van Buren's aid, we
must obtain it without his aid." Why,
that is the tenor of the 13th of May letter
which we publish, and there breathes
through it his hope that we would be able
to get Texas and to get it with Mr. Van
Buren's aid. With this hope, Major Don
elson, as a delegate, left the Hermitage,
charged with an earnest solicitation to
Messrs. Wright, Benton and others, to in
duce Mr. Van Buren to place himself upon
the annexation of Texas. Mr. Van Buren
failed to do so, and General Jackson's con
fidential friends in the Convention, loving
Texas better than Van Buren, attempted
to concentrate on Mr. Wright, and failing,
did unite on Mr. Polk, Mr. Buchanan re
ceiving at no time more than twenty-six
votes. It was General Jackson's topmost
desire to witness the annexation of Texas,
and to accomplish it he abandoned his
long-tried personal friend is it reasonable
to suppose that he would have iudicated as
the proper man to achieve this darling ob
ject, one who when pushed to a vote on the
question, expressed many objections, and
could only be brought to it, from the con
sideration that it would "limit and not en
large the area of slavery?" Had General
Jackson a world of confidence in Buchan
an's personal integrity, would he have gone
to him as a special friend of Texas?
Then Major Donelsou's testimony does
not vindicate Judge Catron's statement,
but flatly invalidates it. It shows that at
the time of Judge Catron's visit, Gen. Jack
son still cherished the hope that Mr. Van
Buren would so modify his views as to per
mit him and the friends of Texas to support
him, and that as a consequence Judge C.
(must be mistaken in stating that the Gen
eral declared himself for Buchanan. When
viewed in connection with Gen. Jackson's
written opinion of the man, and his failure
during Jackson's lifetime or the lifetime of
his influence with the Democratic party, to
inspire the confidence of that party as a
candidate for the Presidency, all doubt of
the mistake vanishes.
Oh no, James Buchanan could never
become the candidate of the Democracy
while the spirit of Juckson ruled "lord of
the ascendant." It was not till that honest
old man's head lay with the clods of the
valley, aud Democrats could revile him as
a slanderer aud falsifier, that the arch-intriguer
at Wheatland could cozen them
into his support.

which shall array permanent! these sections in po

On approaching toe square the beholder was
struck with the gorgeousnes- ot the stand, it being
the most substantial and truly m igo.ticeni on - eer

a sectional platform Thev had found a man already
nominated ibat knew no North uor Sooth, and for
bim they pledged the Wbig party. I am not here
to address yoa tootght, a there are other and
abler speakers present, and I shall take pleasure ia
introducing them to yoa.
After Mr Scble sat down, the Band played
Rait Columbia, and the G!ee Club under Professor
He wil, aai.g a beautiful campaign song to the tune
of "Columbia the Gem of the Ocean."
Mr Schley then sid as Virginia was the rt
State to suggest tbe assembling ol tbe Whig Na
tional Sute Convention, he thought it due to that
noble commonwealth to give her the first honor of
the evening. He then introduced to the meeting
tbe Hon. William L Goggjn, who addressed the
immense mass for over half an hour in a most ele
gaut manner. Tbe speaker wait, bere to endor-e
tbe nomination of Millard .Fillmore, i mm who
knew no platform but bis God and his conntrv
Mr. Gogin gave a history of Mr Fillmore from
his early struggles against poverty to his present
exalted position in the hearts of his countrymen.
Mr. G. concluded by saying he would return to old
Virginia to work and vole (or Filtmore and DoneU
At the conclusion of Mr. Goggio's speech, the
Band and the Glee Club lavored the meeting with
Mr Sibley then introduced the Hon. Francis
Graiiger, of New York. At the name of this old
veteran whig, the tongues of lhe crowd were loos
ened, and one general shout went up for this old
war horse ol conservative principles.
Mr. Granger was understood io say that the last
tini he bad the pleasure of addressing the people
ol Baltimore was in 1844, during the campaign ol
glorious old Harry ol the West, when the masses
assembled to confirm hia nomination a nomination
not made by ballot, but by lhe glorious uprising
ol the people of the United Sutra. Here, of all
places in ine nation, ehould speeches be mu 3e for
lhe perpetuity of tbe Union. Maryland held the
ishes ! the last surviving signer ot tlie Declaration
of Independence it waa the home of Carroll of
Cairollion bis cradle and bis grave. Freemen
who guard tne grave of such a man, need not be
told where to be in such a time as this. When he
heard that the old Hue whigs were to rally here, he
wis glad ol ii a more tilling place could not have
in eu selected.
Is the whig party dead? No. There is a party
iu ibis nation thai will iie supciior to all section
ali?m. Be not atldid. The speaker came not here
to speak pariiculmly of the candidate nominated
to day. He came not bere to say he was a meru
ber ot the American parly, tor be was not. He
was a wbig, au old line wnig, but would shake
hands with any and everv body who would keep
step to the uiuric ot the Uniou He believed that
Daniel O'Conneli was ngut when he said that
Irishmen snould ml. Ireland, and he d iff. red from
