Gen. Cass is nominated not only because
he has done good service to his country
with hir sword, but because he has enrich
ed her literary and political annals with his
pen, and defended the people in the balls
of legislation. Presented by the Democ
racy, who approve his principles, and are
proud of his course, he became their can
didate without causing a sacrifice, on eith

The disorganization in the Whig ranks
seems to spread with similar rapidity in the
New England States and the West, and will
soon be beyond the reach of the originators
of the movement. From a feeling of dis
content, the disaffection has gradually
grown into a settled conviction on the part
of thousands, that their position of hostili
ty to the regular Whig ticket, is a duty
which they have to perform, as moral and
religious men.
