' pf.riw GnoVE, September 3, 1852.
Dr. S. M. Bamako Dear Sir. Your
letter of yesterday in relation to statements
"in a niimberof U'hig papers of Ohio and
elsewhere," concerning the position which
1 now occupy, and your inquiries us to my
"feelings and views," towards Generals
Winn" eld Scott and Franklin Pierce as can
didates for the next Presidency, is now be
fore me.
Anl, in answer to it, permit me to :iy to
you, that it is with no ordinary interest I
view the contest now goin(? on between the
friends of General Winfieid Scott und Gen.
Franklin Pierce the two prominent men
now candidates for the Presidential choir 'of
the Union, the one noniinteil by a Whig Na
tional Convention tho other by a Conven
or the Democratic party. I have, sir, lis
you know, olways been n Democrat; i
was born a Democrat, and I expect to live
the balance of my days as such, und then die
a Democrat. '
I supported Thomas Jefferson for tho Pres.
idoncy. I supported Mr. Madison two terms,
Mr. Monroe twice, und was one of the elec
tor in Ohio that voted for Moiiroo at the
time of his second election. In IS21 I was
placed at the head of the Jackson doctoral
ticket in Ohio; in 1838 was chosen an elec
' tor in that State, and giivo my vole, as such
for General Andrew Jackson.
I was President of the Democratic National
Convention at Baltimore, in Itf.'W, which
nominated Genoral Jackson for re-nomiiia-tion,
and that recommended Martin Van
Huron as a candidate for Vice President on
the same ticket; I supported Mr. Van Jliiren
for the Presidency in 1 H3i onrl 1810. I vot
ed for Generul Cusstn 1818,' and should
freely vote for him aguin were ho a candi
date. TliCBonro so mtiny proofs of my title
of Democrat. This title has been well
' earned, and my right to it shall never be im
"paired. Unt I cannot support Franklin
Piereo by word or deed, for the important of
fice of President, consistent with principles
which I havo evt$ ns a Democrat entertain
ed, nor with the voluntary pledges I mndu to
lite Democratic Convention of (Jliio. which
nominated me in 18:14, us a candidate for re
election to tho ollico f f Governor of that
flourishing Stale; these pledges being ns fol
lows; "My 'motto has ever been, principles,
measures, and men thai will curry principles
and measures into effect and you limy rest as
sured, that whatever tuny bo my Mntjoii or
situation in life, you may always find mo in

lyongrcss should exercise such power when
ever such improvements are necessary for tho
common defence for tho protection and fa
cility or commerce with foreign nations or
among tho States said improvement being
natiniml and general in their character. I
understand Mr. Pierce to superadd to tho a
.bove doctrine, a proviso to tho effect, that
tho waters on which those improvements aro
proposed to bo madu shall bo suit und that
they ahall be moved by tidei. He has in cf-1
foct, doclarod that tho depths of the waters

As a Western man therefore, and as an
original Jackson Democrat, us a friend to
Internal Improvements, und to lha Protec
tion and encouragement of American Indus
try, I cannot and I will not support such a
man as Franklin Pierce for the Presidency.
Arid as thero are now but two prominent
candidate before tho Aiiietiran people,
iiamoly: Winfield Scott and Franklin
Pierce, one of whom will necessarily be
elected tho next President, I shall most
eheerfully and freely give my vote and intlu

the best Democrat of the two.and on whom
every friend to the West particularly, and
to Internal Improvement, and to the pro
motion of American Industry, ought to pre
fer and to cordially support.
' Before I conclude I wish to call your at
"Vtcution to a short article which la luken from
the Iowa Capital Reporter of tho 1st inst.
It i a follow:

the Whijr. Par,y induced by what he consid
ers injustice to himself personally by the
leader of the Democratic party of this State,
so that the Whigs need not flatter '.hem
selves that the personal popularity of Gen.
Scotl had any influence on Gov. Lucas'
Now sir, I wish to state that the litnr ol
that paper has never been authorized by me,
or any other person for me, to make any
such statements as those contained in the
above copied article. It is true that I have
often expressed my admiration of the admin
istration or Mr. Fillmore; but never have I
said that I entertained personal diMiko to
Gen. Scott. On the contrary, i have ever
admired his braverv as a soldier and his -kill
ami qualification as n commander in the
various battles in which lie has hern en

hrave and true soldier. In every promin

observe hiin, I never doubted hi being a
pure patriot, us well as an efficient, capable
and honest man. '
My 'sympathies" have always been with
honest men and with g.-miine old-fashoned
Democracy. I am not n progressive Loco
loco, and tht cditur f the reporter uglit to
know tlio difl'erence that I believe exists be
tween Hie doctrines of Democracy and those
of Lofolocoism; lor some time since I re
peated to him, In ciibstancp, the following:
"The advocate ol true Democracy always
act with pure and upright motives, and in
the selection of men ond the adoption of

Locofocoisin selects such men and advo

leaders the seven principles referred to by
John C. Calhoun, to wit: "tho five loaves

The Legislation of last Winter.
CinxEiti or Obioi The time approaches
when you will be called upon to select, by
your votes, various officer to fill place of
high trust in the Counties, State, and Na
tion ; the highest and most Important of all
being that of President or the United State.
The greatest privilege which we enjoy, that
of choosing our own rulers, ia to be exercis
ed; and it devolves upon every sincere pa
triot, aa a solemn duty, to consider carefully
and deliberately, without reference to mere
party tics, the positions occupied by various
candidate for election.
With a view to a just decision, let the fol
lowing facts receive a candid and impartial
consideration :
On the adoption of the New Constitution,
a Legislature was elected, which was com
posed of a large majority of the party styling
itseil Democratic, it wo the boast ol tne
Statesman and other kindred papers, that
"the Constitution was in the hands of its
friends." Large promises were made as to
the retorm that were to be introduced. The
tuces were to be lessened; the expenses of
government were to be diminished; the in
terest of the farmers and laborer were to be
specially regarded; and improvements were
to be made in every department of govern
ment. How have these professions been redeem
ed! Let a brief narrative of facta furnish
the answer. The Legislature convened,
and continued in session one hundred and
twenty days. Their action was such, a to
become the subject of common talk with per
sona of all parties. They passed a smaller
number of well-co:isidered and well-digested
lawa than any legislative body which has
assembled for years. They committed a
scries of gross blunders, which their most
ingenious friends cannot defend. But last of
all, they Increased the expenses of legisla
tion by votinc money into their own pock
ets, to an enormous and dangerous extent
to an extent far greater than ever belore
known; and far greater than they could have
done, if the least regard had been paid to
the interests of the people the taxpayers of
the State.
Consider the facta in detail:
1st. They increased their own par from
three dollars- per day the sum formerly paid
to four. :
2d. Thcygrently increased tho number
of Clerks, oergeants-at-arms, Messengers,
&c.,and increased their pay from three to
Tour dollars per day.
3d. They increasod the expenses of the
Public Printing enormously, to put money
into the hands of a partisan printer, in viola
tion of the Constitution.
4th. They wasted their time to such an
extent, that they leu work imperfectly exe
cuted; and although the new Constitution
provides for only biennial Legislatures, they
adjourned to meet again in November next,
to pass away another winter at tho expense
or the Uixpaying people.
These were their reforms these tho im
provements which they introduced for the
benefit of the farmers and laborers of Ohio!
But let us look further.
The following list of hungry partisans
were Quartered on the public, and consumed
the substance of the people:
In the Senate. In the House.
Clerk and assistants 8 13
Sergeants-at-arms 1 8
Messenger boya 6 0
21 27
Or 48 servants in all, necessary to n'tend on
a "democratic" Legislature, at an expense of
$18,720. . Tho whole expenses of the last
winter legislation ore a follows:
Per diem of members, at $4 each
- ner dnv ' 8G2.8S0
Pay or Clerks, Sergeants-nt-nrms
Deputies, fitc., at sumo rates 17,280
Twelve Messenger Boys, nt $1
peroay l,44U
Printing 83.550
Total $115,150
Theso figures are compited from tho most
aothentic sources, and may be relied on as
correct. They cannot be Controverted.
Thus it will bo seen thul the expense of the
legislation for four months, under Democrat
ic rule, amount to the enormous sum of ONE
SAND DOLLARS! Let the people look
to these matters. Ye men who pay the tax
es of the State look to theso matters! Con
sider them well. Ask yourselves if these
are the reforms which you desired. Is it for
this you labor and awout in your workshops
&, on your farms! Is it for this that you strove
to advance to office men who appea. to you
in the name of Democracy for your votes
nnd for your influence? Alus! we have ful
len upon evil days. Democracy wus once
an honored name, and represented high pnr-
f loses and pure thoughts. It is now the ral
y ing cry of impure spirits,and political blood
suckers,who have forsaken the ancient ways,
and prostituted the principles of their party
for mere personal advancement and person
al profit. -
Tbatlhe pcoplo of the State may form a
more correct idea or the extruvagance of this
expenditure, let them contrast the foregoing
figures wjth the expenses of tho Legislature
under Whig rule.
In 1844-5 tho Whigs had the entire con
trol of affuirs nnd hold them until 1848.
In 1844-5, the entire pay of Members,
Clerks, Sergcunts-at-arins, and
Messenger Boys, ainounte t to . $27,553
For 1845-6 25,496
1846-7 ' 27,634
" 1847-8 33,765
Add the items of printing for
g 114,448

1846- 7
1847- 8
$10,808 73
9,318 06
' 10,804 63
16,626 87
Total $47,558 19
The appropriation of last winter to cover
expenses or Members, &c, amounting to
$90,000, may be found in last winterVlaws,
page 325-27, at the office of any justice-of
the -peace in your township.. Compare it
with the Whig appropriation of only $20,
000, for the same purpose, March 2, 1846.
Thus it will be seen that the entire ex
penses of legislation, under Whig rule, a
niounted, for ur years, only to the sum of
$162,046, or ari average of $40,509; while
for four month, under "Democrr tic" rule,
the expenses were $115,150 an excess of
$74,609 per annum, or nearly fares times as
much under Democratic asunder Whig ad
ministration. Add to this, that the same Legislature
meets again in a few weeks, to renew its
attacks upon the Treasury; that it will
probably continue during the winter; and if
we may judge of its future by its past action,
not less than a quarter of a million of dollars
will be required to pay the entire expenses
of these reckless and extravagant men.
These facts carry with them their com
mentary. They demonstrate, more clearly
than any other system of argument, the
true character and value of this Democratic
cry of love for economy and reform, and regard
for the taxpayers of the State. They
prove conclusively that the people are pay
ing dear for the privilege of being ruled by
such men and soch a party.
- Let the voters of Ohio calmly examine this
subject, and see if there is any good reason
for this extraordinary increase in the expen
ses of legislation. Let them decide whether
the empty cry of "Democracy and Reform'
will compensate for the reckless and prodi
gal expenditures of money which is here
shown, and whether they will, by their votes.
