For publishing at Washington a newspaper,
h to be called
h v
I, Having purchased from Messrs. Blair and Rives
l- the whole establishment of the "Globe," we propose
publishing at Washington a paper, to be styled
f> We approach the task before us with a deep ser.se
>, of the respon hility which we are about to assume,
Ij. and not without much diffidence of our qualifica,
tions. We have some acquaintance, indeed, with
e the duties of an editor of a newspaper, but it wus
n acquired upon other theatres, much more limited
* and less conspicuous than the metropolis of our cony
federated and wide-spread republic,
e We can scarcely be charged with any inordinate
r vanity in saying that upon the success of our instttutions
depends, in a great degree, the destiny of
r the oldest countries of Europe. A distant posterity
e has a deep interest in our fate. The blessings of
,f liberty are essential to the prosperity of the whole
numcui race; and where are (hey spread out on so
large a field of action, or illustrated by *o many
brilliant examples, as in these United States?
We have only to realize them in our own history,
_ and in the happiness of our people, to spread the 1
, nume of liberty over the Eastern World. We
have only to perpetuate these blessings by preserv- 1
ing the sacred Union of our States, and there is no '
' assignable limit to the prosperity which we may ]
- enjoy, or the glories to wnich we may ascend in the I
- scale of nations. We have already wrought mira- I
- cles enough to astonish the foreign tourist amid all 1
, his prejudices, and to attract the curiosity, if not the 1
i admiration, of . Europe. We have displayed the <
- benefits of Liberty and of Union in a series of '
- phenomena, which are almost calculated to surprise 1
I ourselves. What can be more remarkable, even in '
t the present day, than the spirit of enterprise and im
provement which pervades our States ; the schools 1
- which they are erecting; the canals which they have 1
' executed; the more than 4.000 miles of rail whv which i
9 they have constructed in less than twenty years; the 1
t immense bodies of land which they have redeemed I
from the wilderness; the towns which they have <
strewn over the West; the multiplication of our peo- '
" pie from three to twenty millions of souls; the aug- <
mentation of the number of our States from thirteen 1
! to twenty-nine, including the three new States of '
Florida, Iowa, and Texas, which, as-we write, we )
" hope are now probably starting into existence? 1
"Westward the course of empire takes its way; ,
The (our first acts already past,
1 A fifth shajlrlose the drama with the day, 9
Time's noblest ofl'spriug is the last." I
' It is principally the influence of the free institu\
tions we possess, and which were never dreamed of ^
more than a hundred years by the philosophic au- ,
, thor of these beautiful lines, that has wrought so
, many achievements here. Liberty excites man to r
think for himself, to cast off antiquated prejudices, c
and to start in a new career of improvement. It B,
opens, besides, in this new country, as it were, u
, new asylum to the oppressed of all nations, which,
in despite of the "Native American" prejudices of
, the day, still continues to invite other people to cut- v
r tivate our lands, and contribute to our progress. It 8
. is our free institutions, more than any other cause, a
I which are drawing "the course of empire" to the 8
Western World.
' We live, too, in an extraordinary age. Improvement
seems to be the order of the day. Science is P
>hooting forth in all directions. Art is obtaining ['
the most brilliant triumphs over Nature. The age ,
ts uavancing with the impetuosity of steam, to which
it is so muui indebted for its progress. Commerce
is expanding her wings under the impulse of a new "
and stronger principle. There seems, indeed, to be 8
' no limit to the progress of discovery; and it is in f
the midst of such an age, and at the metropolis of I'
this great country, that we are about to erect our ''
tent, for the responsible purpose of maintaining the !
1 true principles of our institutions. We almost .
shrink back from the enterprise we have underta- !'
ken. But we at least bring to the task a spirit that {!
1 is devoted to Liberty, to Union, and to our Country;
a heart that is proud of the name of Amkrican;
some little experience in our business; n zeal
that nothing can subdue, and an industry that fears
. no labor. With these feelings, we come to throw ?
ourselves upon the liberality of our countrymen.
We trust that we shall receive, if we deserve, their c'
support. If we fail in an enterprise which might P1
1 almost appal the stoutest spirit, they will at least be
liberal enough to ascribe it to the want of power, ^
and not of will?to the head that guides us, and not
to the heart that impels us. e.
Of one thing we may confidently assure the publie?we
approach the tusk with the deepest reverence
for the true theory of our political institutions, tr
Our confederated republic is making a new and a
bold experiment in the science of government. r<
When we look to the original form of the conslitu- b
tion, we are indeed struck with its novelty and beau- '
ty. We see in it nn attempt to ascertain how far 8
I ower can be so distributer! between two oovern- a
niENTs us to prevent an excessive concentration, and a
consequent abuse of it, in the federal arm; at the p
same time that so much power was conveyed to each, 1
as to enable them to accomplish the objects to which t
each of them was best adapted. p
The peoeral government was principally to watch lr
over our foreign relations; that of the States was
particularly 10 taKc core 01 our internal concerns. n<
The federal government should have adequate t!
powers to maintain the peace and the rights of the V
Union abroad; but at home, its office is to aosist in ei
binding the Union together, by the benefits which it
it showers around it, within certain prescribed lim- h
its?leaving the great mass of local matters to the st
jurisdiction of tne States, which can better under- le
stand and more,properly regulate them. Keeping w
thin general distinction in view, the constitution has pi
marked down the limits of the federal power, and it at
should be the duly of its authorities religiously to ir
preserve them. Dissolution on the one hand, and
consolidation on the other, being the extremes which
are to be carefully avoided, the constitution was so
. framed, and the government should be so adminis- rr]
tered, as, whilst the federal power exercises its legilintate
functions, it should sacredly respect the ()|
niouts of the States and the rights of the people. c>
The federal government must, therefore, ever re- w
member, that it has only certain limited powers, ^
which are either specified in the constitution itself, e(
or which may be "necessary and proper" for carry- m
ing out the specified powers. It cannot pass these ff
limits with impunity. It cannot interpolate any ^
powers by a forced or factitious construction, with- m
out producing some opposition from the parties to w
the compact, or some remonstrance from tne people.
It would never do, inueed, to give an unlimited ev
power to the federal head, over tne local interests
of the several parts. Our country covers an exten- fJ)
aive empire. It embraces a great variety of climates ^
and soils, of occupations antlof interests. The ob- y
vious danger of too much federal legislation is, of tj(
course, that it may affect these different interests in ce
a very unequal degree. Whilst it seeks to adminis- ni
?? uwiwmo iu wnc ncuiyiij.ii limy niipuBe uurucua .
upon another. Nor does the miachicf terminate l(,
here. Inequality produces complaint. The suffering
States become dissatisfied. One section not only
murmurs at>oul the partiality shown to another, but
against the government which commits it. The '
Union itself is less respected, because of the injustice *
which it displays. The only way of preventing
these injuries and theae complaints is, to administer
the government within the limitations of the instru- rei
mcnt, and in a spirit which is calculated to equalize, ""
as far as possible, its benefits and its burdens lhl
amongst the whole Union. In no other way can P"
we prevent the federal government from rushing n"
into schemes of consolidation, or the States into a
tendency towards dissolution. If we permit the 081
federal government systematically to adopt any an
rule of construction, which may enlarge its powers ln'
at the expense of the States, or of the people?if P*
Congress may adopt any measure which they may 1
fancy to be "necessary and proper," then power ly
may be so augmented as, in the progress of time, to ou
amount to consolidation. Then, we must extend the
the executive department to carry out these extend- #ri
ed powers; then, as one of the celebrated resolutions enl
of one of the first Slates in the Union showed in 1>9, pel
we should gradually merge into a limited monarchy, au
flushed with power and fortified by patronage; or, ing
we must fly to the other fatal alternative?we must eoi
dissolve the Union itself to recover our liberties; that go'
Union, which has been consecrated by the blood of din
our forefathers; that Union, which ia so necessary to of
preserve our tranquillity at home and our peace oui
abroad; that Union, which ought to be as dear to to I
us as "the niddy drops which warm our hearts." era
ln a word, the government must be administered i
according to the good old JierrEiuovuN atan
In thia reaped we are happy to know, that we
but carry out the delilierute wishea of the pr
Preaideut of the United Suites. The lime once
when a very different rule prevailed, and whe
lalitudinoua conatructiouists of the federal s<
stood at the helm of affairs. A powerful Nati
Bank had triumphed over the Constitution
threatened our very liberties. A gigantic syau
Internal Improvements was projected by the
eral government. An unequal and- oppre
Tariff of dutiea was established. What limi
deed, wua there to lie to the encroachments uni
ceases of the government, if these principles prt
ed in its administration? But thanks to theaup
genius and the "iron will" of Andrew Jackson
came to redeem, by his vetoes, die constitution
violation, and the country from abuse. He a
gled the Moniter Bank. He set limits to the
schemes of Internal improvement, and he ina
on bringing back the Tariff System to its legili
Revenue uses.
But the federal party was not yst exiinguit
Their extraordinary efforts in 1840 to defeat
able statesman, Martin Van Buren, aided aa
were bv the vilest devices, and hw the >m>u>i a
of the money power, contributed, willt the sinj
condition of the country, to pluce them again a
head of the government. It is not necessary fo
to recapitulate the struggles which have since
sued, to describe the indomitable up it of our frit
or their final glorious triumph to the eleetioi
James K. Polk. Another era is then opened t?
His administration has just commenced. He c<
to carry out the principles of the RurcaucAN 1
IV, and the pledges to that end under which he
elected. He takes the Jefkchsoman Est fo
standard, and we, loo, corse forward to suppor
principles of the Republican Faith, and to giv
(lis administration a fair, lilieral, and efficient
port. We will oppose a ialitudinous constructit

ind sufficient to raise adequate means, along '

he blessings and the burdens of government. Si
ve are satisfied, is the true spirit of the Preside
ate admirable inaugural, whose general views of
ihuracter and principles of our government i
lafely defy all the illiberal criticisms of the
English journals. It looks to a revenue standar
luties, honestly levied for the purpose of raising
lecessary funds to defray the economical expel

a to equalize, as far as practicable, the public I
ens upon a!i classes ana sections.
We shall deem it our solemn duty to res]
hose essential compromises in the constitui
rhich secured its adoption. These were "the

i the settlement of this momentous question, m
ig will be omitted by the President of the Un
tales which may be demanded by a proper S[
f conciliation, and a due regard to the rights i
onor of our country.
But other subjects now call upon our attent.
nu ai mis lime transcending all others, is the qi
on of annexation of Texas. It is scarcely
cesary for ua to pledge all our efforts to the f
onsummation of that great question. None h
een more zealously devoted than ourselves to
dmission of the lone star into our constellali
hottld any difficulties occur on the part of her g
rninent, or of the whius of the United States,
hall spare no exertions to remove them.
These important questions once adjusted, and
irifT system brought to the proper revenue po
it may then expect more tranquillity in our ps
slations?but peace, never. The danger can lie
e over, so long as we have a party to contend u
ke the federal whigs?a party which is actuated
uch false principles, which is so strong in itself,
bly organized, so closely cemented together, so k
trously attached to its leaders, and so fatally
elled by its excited passions, and its mortified pr
'hey are even now preparing to attack the admii
ration, to misrepresent its measures, abuse its
ointments, and pull down the republican par
i order thut they may rise upon its ruins.
For ourselves, we are prepared to resist th
ow, and hereafter, as vigorously as the editor
us paper has done for more than forty yei
Vith such an opposition wc must expect a const
counter,?ana we go 10 Washington with a tie
lined spirit to resist them?to expose ti
eteredox principles?to clear away misrei
iniations, and to baffle the election of tl
aders. We shall attempt to discharge this du
c hope, under a due sense of the dignity of
mus. We shall be willing to cope with our adt
tries, not in pcrsonul abuse, but with fair nrgum
i the open held.
For the purpose of resisting so formidable an
asition, we shall spare no honorable effort to ki
iir own party united. We hold that this gove
ient belongs to the rrnri.e of the States?thai
their power to give and to take away the high
fices of the repcbi.ic?and that every man, no
rer distinguished by ability or services, shot
tlmly wait until it shall please the people to <
im into their service. Such was the course pur
I by our party at the last election. Such was I
anner in which James K. Polk has been cat
nm his retirement, and such is the example whi
e people will hereafter imitate, if the present t
inistration shall be crowned with the benel
hich every good man wishes* and which eve
>ncst patriot will attempt to atffbtnplish. In a
'ent, we will seek to make this moral lesson effe
e; and, for this purpose, we go to Washington

Mr. Polk has publicly declared his intention
