P0R. PRESIDENT :
Williaza Henry Harrison
TOH VICE PRESIDENT-:
TO OUR PATRONS.
Before you is the first number of the long talk
ed of -and long expected Jejtersonian Rccptblitan !
The delays, inconveniences, and disappointments,
which have met us at every point in our endeavors
to give existence to this healthy looking bantling,
greatly exceeded our expectations ; hence the rea
son why it did not make its appearance sooner.
Custom has. rendered it the first duty of an edi
tor in establishing a political paper, to give an ex
position of his principles, or rather, the princi
ples by which he will be governed in the conduct of
tho Press under his control. Now, this custom
lias its evil as well as good results, for, young edi
tors, that is, those who have never entered the
thorny path to wretchedness and mental misery,
or stood before the public a target for the ar
rows of the low, tho vulgar, the designing, the in
triguing and desperate members of community,
who either as fractional parts of a political cabal
t'ie contemners of virtue, morality, and religion
t5 haters of truth, and suppressors of liberty of
conscience and independence of action, are too
frequently led into error by promising too much, or
more than they arc able or willing, after a little ex
perience in their business, to fulfillthus disap
X'ointing their readers, and subjecting themselves
to the bitter revilings of their enemies. Having
passed the ordeal in another sphere, we presume
on our experience to guide us in our government
of the Jeffersonian Republican, and shall take care
to promise only what we- know wc "are able to per
form. We are well aware of the difficulties with which
the path of an editor is beset, by the variety of
tastes and singularity of opinions existing in com
munity, and while we shall ever make it our study
to please our readers, and render our paper agree-
able to all, by a careful and judicious selection of
useful and entertaining reading, in politics, we shall
never suffer ourself to be seduced from that course
which we deem right, to gratify the whims, caprice,

are no man's hireling no party's slave
tnind is unshackled, and our thoughts as free as
the air we breathe. We are governed alone bv
principle, having no motive in view but the public J
pocd. To place ourself, however, beyond the ;
jach of advice, or to assume a dictatorial position, :
, . . , , . ,r ' .
i not our object, e would choose rather to be
advised than advise, indeed, we solicit as an cs
pecial favor, the confidence and the counsel of
the wise and experienced of our friends.

of the American forces, Military and Naval,,
together with an enormous official patronage, would'
render liim more powerful, than the Executive of
tho British Nation, and in short make our Gov
ernment, dc facto an Elective Monarchy.
Eighth An honorable opposition to Van Buren
First, because we believe him to be aGtuate'd-' by
no single desire to- promote the good of his coun
try; second, because he has never yet performed
any one thing entitling him to the highest .office ia
the gift of the people-; third, because hertsfan ' old
Federalist' and opposed tho dcmocraticclministra
tion of Madison, and while brave merrwere fight-,
ing the battles of their country; he&was quarreling
with those who, by the cxeicisp of their wisdom,
wore endeavoring to sustain her against the enemy :
and lastly, had we no other groundfor opposing him,
we should consider his elevation to the Presiden
cy and a sprvice of one terra in the performance
of the honorable, important and arduous duties of
that office 'sufficient to gratify' a laudable' am
bition,' and consequently, deprecate the motive
of his friends in urging him upon the people for a
"We shall support General Wii mam II. Harri
son of Ohio, for President in 1811, . in opposition to
Martin Van Bucen, and John Tyler, of Virginia,
in opposition to Richard M. Johnson.
In placing the name of the old hero of Tippeca
noe and the Thames at theliead of our columns, we
feel conscious of honoring a worthy man a man
who, if elected Chief Magistrate of the Nation,
would serve his country with that singleness of
purpose, honest fidelity, and devotedncss to the
promotion of the, general good, for which he has
ever been distinguished in discharging the duties
of tho many high and responsible offices conferred
upon him through life. That he has proved him
self a brave and"skilfull soldier and a wise and ju
dicious statesman, no candid man who has read
the history of his country will deny : that he is a
thorough democrat, we need only remark to con
vince our readers of this fact, that his body bears
honorable token of what he has suffered in the' de
fence of our republican institutions, made still more
dear to him by the knowledge that his own father
was one of the immortal signers of the ' Declara
tion of Independence,' and pledscd hi3 life, and
honor, and fortune, in the maintenance of those
grand principles of liberty which gave birth to
this great and enlightened nation. We are proud
to support such a man, and, to contrast him with
the cunning, and intriguing individual, the present
incumbent, who crept into the executive chair on
the popularity of his predecessor, would seem the
best method of obtaining a just appreciation of
the decided superiority in every qualification that
distinguishes man, in the war worn veteran of the

he is conscious of having discharged his duty
faithfully and honestly, will shrink from a candid

resumption of specie payments by the banks,
and to guard against a like suspension in fu

banks of this commonwealth, and of fixing the
earliest period of the resumption of specie
payments, that their affairs and the public
wants and expectations justify. It would, per
haps, bo expedient to graduate this resumption
either by the denomination of notes or amounts

C. J. Ingersoll. "Would have been a Tory,"
and would-be-member of Congress, Ingersoll, has
been justly rebuked by his own party at Washing
ton. He claimed the seat of Charles Naylor who
was elected by a majority of 7 or 800 and even
got the Governor to back his pretensions by a pro
clamation but he received the go-by at Washing
ton. In the organization of the House, it was de
clared that ho could not vote ! Such barefaced vil
liiny should ever be discountenanced by honest
j men, no matter of what party. Ingersoll always
was a tory in principle, and is yet.

judge from the facts as prcscnted.wcHiink we should
have done precisely tho same thing. This taking
the law into one's own hand, and inflicting corpo
real punishment on editors for the free expression of
their opinion, is becoming too common. . In our
view, according to tho principle of self preservation,
a man is justifiable in defending himself, let the

Important O mssion. We find tho following
in the United States Gazette :
The President in his recont Message to Con
gress entirely omitted the following important
passage which we presume arose from1 an error
of the clerk in copying it. Tho paragraph omit
ted should have followed immediately after the
tirade against tho late 13&d; of tho United States
ami should have been as follows; "I, however
owe it to the cause of truth and justico to slate,

patriotism by affixing hi3 signature to the Declara

fortune, and honor,; in defence of those great prin
ciples of liberty for which heroes bled in the revo
lution, he has never failed to manifest the same
spirit, and the same devotedness, whenever his
country called upon him. And, had ho never
worn an epaulet fought a battle, or added a laurel
to that wreath of glory which encircles the Ameri
can arms, the very fact of his liaving been honored
wi'h the confidence of such men as Washington,
Jefferson, and Madison, and appointed by them to
important and responsible offices, proves conclu
sively that they thought him other than an ' old
granny, mere is no cnarge oi -lmoeciuty re
corded against him m the history ot his country, no.
indeed there he is honored; but it remains for
the dastardly offspring of coward sires to hail with
reproach, the gallant and fearless defender of tho
Western frontier. Had these miserable, hollow-
hearted, and wretched political hacks one spark of
gratitude, or could they look over tho black bar
which ignorance and prejudice have placed be
fore their eyes, they could see ma'ters in a dif
ferent light ; but no, they would rather be blind
folded and serve the devil with zeal in" their dark
ness, than do honor to him to whom honor-justly
belongs. They liye on defamation, and delight in
blowing with hot breach the flame which consumes
character and reputation. But .wc apprehend lit

West, fie stands proudly erect before the Ameri
can people with a calm and dignified brow, on
which wisdom sits enthroned, and with his finger
points them to his own and the history of lus coun

decision. Let Ids enemies try him by this testi
mony, it will not lie, and we here call upon our
readers, upon the whole people of Wayne to- tako
this for their guide.
