Democratic Meeting In Fevor of tile Wart
democratic meeting in favor of sustaining the govnent
in the war with Mexico was held at the county
rt house on Saturday evening. It was largely ailed,
and the proceedings were enthusiastic. Edward
draham, esq., presided, and was assisted by numei
vice presidents an 1 secretaries. Edward A. Pennii,
esq , addressed the meeting in favor of an honors
prosecution and tcrminrttidn rlf the war. The nareqnires
the undivided strength of the people, hut
e is a parly in this city, within sound of the Stale
ise hell, the tocsin whicn woke up the land to freei,
which would cripple the energies of the republic
strike down its defenders. An edict has gone forth
rl Ashland denouncing the war, and those who ene
in it, to sustain the nation's hdnor. The whig* of
city, M-ith a subserviency which has evermaiked
n, were willing to yield up their own opinions, and
ich with supple and ahject fawning at the footstool
denry Clay. Mr. Clay was recreant to his principles;
forgot that he had said but one short year since that
war was just and the nation should be sustained.
1'. spoke at great length upon this subject, and
ught many arguments to hear u|K>n the question.
Ie was succeeded by Ellis B. Schnabel, esq. Mr. S.
ided to the wrongs and insults which the people ol
country have received from Mexico for the last
nty years. He spoke of the aggressions upon properand
insult, imprisonment, and indignities, which have
n offered to persons, by the authorities and people of
xico. The constitution is a compact?it is a contract
ween the people and the government It is the duty of
government to protect its citizens, by treaty, persuai.and
negotiation; but if these means fail, then summon
r from his iron den, and hid him marshal his squadrons
tie bloody contest. The speaker could not join in the
ct that many felt for the lives lost in the war. Every
i's life was due, and was intended to he. yielded up
en the interests of society demand it. Some grow oh!
he loom, or the plough ; and after having given their
rices through a long life, for the general benefit, yield
their existence when their hair is silvered. Some
d the laculties of the mind to the general amelioration
aankind. It is the duty of others to yield up life in
sunny days of youth, uimn the battle-field. All do
r duty, and carry out the designs of an overruling
sdoin. Society is benefited; and if the principles of
rty are disseminated, those who fell in Mexico died
. glyrious cause.
iut there was something else to do, besides gaining
ories over Mexico. We must conquer the Mexican\
our midst. The enemy is waiting, now expecting
ch from the action of the present Congress. It was
gesled to them that the whigs would thwart and ope
the measures of the Executive. Until the Mexican
ty here is conquered, and the country presented an unken
front, no honorable termination of the war could
expected. So soon as that state of affairs happens,
may expect Mexico to sue for peace. Mr. Scnnabei
trusted the present views of the whigs with their exjsions
upon the subject before the war commenced,
read from the North American of May, 1S1G, a most
verful article, condemning the government for not
lmencing w<xr at once. That article was written
m the reception of the news of the rejection of Mr.
lell, and before the news of the affairs of Fort Brown
! Palo Alto. It reviewed the conduct of Mexico, and
he most indignant terms spoke of the wrongs and inS
which the nation had borne?declared that we had
ne more from Mexico than all the wrongs which had
r been offered to any nation during the present century,
sked liow much more insult was the Executive going to
r, and why prompt measures were not taken to vinuii
the national honor. The speaker said it was a more
lent war article than he could find in any democratic
er. He then contrasted this article with the present
tude of the North American, and commented severely
hi the inconsistency of that journaj.
leneral A. L. Roumfort introduced the resolutions, preng
them with apposite remarks. He xvas followe!
Horn R Kneass, Benjamin Champneys, Jos. A. Nuncs,
Robert M. Lee.
Ir. Ingraham being called upon, addressed the meetbriefly,
showing the similarity of the whig party with
altitude of the federal party during the last war. He
demned the policy of withdrawing our troops or giving
the conquered territory until we shall be indemnified
the expenses of the war. He believed the day would
le when the government of the whole world will be ;t
ablic, of which this government will be the basis, first
ing cmbiaced the entire continent. The meeting adrned
about 10 o'clock.
icveral resolutions were offered ; the following are the
st important:
ttolved, That we cannot refrain from expressing our reto
hear, in every breeze which reaches our ears, that
same spirit of distrusl to popular power, which
federal pany exhibited during ttie war of 1812, and
le ; the same disposition to thwart and unitcrmine the
rgetic action of the constituted authorities of the govern it,
is now in full operation j our opponents as a party
c proclaimed, at uinr recent meeting in tins city, ana
c fully sanctioned this declaration by their press, that
objects ol the present war are wrongful nod inexpedi;
mat the President of the United States has usurped
'ers in violation ol his constitutional authority, and in
tgation of the rights of the citizen, ami which reduce
nericHn freemon to a grade beneath those of the subs
of any existing constitn ional monarchy."
eiolvrtl, Tltat the annexation of the republic of Texas
ur Union was distinctly proclaimed as a democratic
isure by the national convention which nominated our
ient distinguished Chief Magistrate; and in the able
admirable letter which lie wrote prior to the meeting
he convention, he distinctly and frankly avowed that
as once constituted a part of the territory of the United
es; that it was improperly ceded to Spain, and never
tld have been dismembered from ont union ; that just
trity from the grasping encroachments of foreign powers,
iddttion to the advancement of the cause of human
Join, and the influence of a wisely constituted governit,
rendered the measure, to his mind, clear of all doubt,
er as to the power or expediency of the re annexation
results of his administration show how justly ho litis
lemed the pledge which he thus gave to the people and
democracy of the Union.
tiolvtii. That the policy of the government, us distinctrowed
by the President, is to obtain such a pacific adment
of our difficulties with Mexico, as will insure full
anility for the wrongs of our citizens, and secure out
uuneiit relations hereafter. To efleot these salutary
cts, an acquisition of territory, as suggested in the late
isnge or the President, is essential; aau we hold it to be
true policy of the government, to continue the prosecuoftlie
war by the most energ-itio measures, as tito etfecmeans
of conquering a speedy and honorable peace.
tiolvni. That the President of the United States, in his
sage to Congress of December, 18lit, and in Ins more
nt message, has presented a clear and s itisf.ictory exlion
of the causes of the present war with Mexico, and
tatjusi policy which has actuated the government in
ts intercourse with thnt power?to demand nothing bul
it is clearly right, and to submit to nothing that is wrong
eated aggressions and insults, in connection with the
ationof solemn engagements offered by Mexico to our
trntneiit and its ministers, rendered it imperative,
taintennnce of our national honor, and the constitutionItligalioiiH
of the government, to resort to the Inst and
' measure left against the iujustioeof Mexico, by an ap
I to arms: and our army, navy, arid citizen soldiery
B responded to the calls of their country with that
npittiide and enthusiasm which have shown to the
Id thnt the American citizen fully appreciates his own
ateil position, and is ever ready to sacrifice his case,
private interests, and even life itself, when his country
lands it.

! Heyorl of tl>? Serrrtary of the Treasury.?Labor anc
tbe Luboiing CUmmi
! In no nation in the World hare labor and its rights beer
the objects of so much solicitude .as in this; fend it is i
happy indication, in the progressive movements of th<
age, ihat the interests and welfare of the industrial classet
are considered as of high importance in all legislative
Labor is the source of all human enjoyment; and il
may be even reckoned the source of all possession, because
not even the property in severalty of the soil (as is
truly remarked by l/OTu Brougham) can be obtained without
some exertion to acquire and secure possession, while
laboris also required to obtain possession of its minerals
or of the products which grow uncultivated, or the ani
l main which roam wild.
i All wealth, therefore?all objects of necessary use, ol
j convenience, of enjoyment?are either created or fashioned,
or in some way obtained, by human labor. Th(
statesman who does not, in his measures and policy
give a prominent consideration to labor and its rignts, it
either dishonest or ignorant. His conceptions mwu hi
small?his views limited, narrow, contracted, or selfish
or all combined, if he does not in his movements regari
with deep interest ami profound attention the rights o
labor and of those who toil. In all ages and in all coun
tries, labor has been oppressed by the "money power,'
and tyranny, cruelty, and oppression have been praetiset
with impunity On the "toiling millions," by restrictions
combinations, and monopolies, created and secured bj
- partial legislation, and obtained by the influence of th<
"money power." This state of thing."?, under our happ;
constitution, is rapidly passing away. The figlite of (a
bor have been investigated, and the policy 01 our govern
ment has been, under the guidance of wise and huni2nt
statesmen, to secure to labor its rights, and guard it againsi
the encroachments of interested speculators and heartlesi
monopolists. VVe have been led to these reflections, bj
reading the report of the Secretary of the Treasury; am
it has afforded us a |ieculiar satisfaction in finding tha
the subject of labor has occupied so much of his patriotic
attention. Ut the triumphant success ot the tarin, n.Lsei
I on the principle of " ei/ual right* and et/ual justice to alt,'
' we need not apeak. It has disappointed its enemies^ am
more than satisfied its most sanguine friends. It is nt
longer an experiment?speculation, probably, has beet
confirmed by positive results and prosperous facts; ant
" liberal trade, free and Unfettered, may now be consid
. ere J as the settled and permanent policy of the country.'
Free trade, without any restrictions except those whicl
are imposed for the purpose of revenue, has producei
a state of prosperity in commerce, agriculture, manufac
tures, and every munch of human industry, unexampled
in our history; and the protectionists may look in vair
for those disasters, embarrassments, and misfortunes
which they prophesied would result from the operatioi
of the tariff of Its 40. The revenue has increased mori
' than eight millions of dollars, and the laboring classe;
have been reheued indirectly of a tax of fifty-four mil
lions, which was drawn from the labor of the country bi
the unjust tariff of 1812, and which went to enrich thi
evergrasping and avaricious possessors of the " monei
/>ower." It would be superfluous in us to say that Mr
1 Walker is an able statesman; but we shall be pardonec
in extending our remarks a little further in relation to hi:
1 eminent powers, extraordinary sagacity, and his pro'
found and far-reaching policy?a policy which, in iti
progress, must cheer and bless the laboring classes
I His talents for political speculation are of as brilliant i
description, and are so admirably and so usefully applied
| that his reports are as yet unrivalled in the department o
' practical, financial, and commercial science; and he mat
justly be deemed the founder in this country of the lib
eral, enlightened, and rational system of national polity
i | which has the genera! approval of comprehensive states
. men, and which would be speedily adopted all over thi
world but for conflicting interests, popular ignorance
and the opposition which arises from privileged classes
Party violence and prejudice may for a time refuse t<
render justice to the superior abilities of this eminen
man; but the time wdl come when these mists shall havi
passed away, and when it will be universally acknowl
edsred that Robert J. Walker was a benefactor to hi
country. This judgment, which we impartially pro
! nounced long since, bus been still further conflrmei
1 by his last able and luminous report. In this docu
menl, the spirit of humanity is manifested throughout
and his earnest solicitude for the improvement and well
being of the laboring classes, the toiling millions, mils
call torth unmingied approbation from every lover of hi
I rare?f mm nil who nr? animated hv sentiments of a di
vine humanity. The auiigestion which he makes of giv
iiiLr the laboring clause." an interest in the work performed
above and beyond tlieii wages, is one of those concep
lions which, if acted on throughout our country, wil
produce a moral elevation in the proletaries neve
di earned of in the most sanguine aspirations of the mos
enthusiastic, philosophers.
As this part of the report is of great and enduring in
terest to the working classes, we may be pennitted b
quote it entire. We trust that ail those who aesire to sei
our country permanently advancing in spiritual elevation
in mental improvement, intellectual development, am
physical enjoyment, will give to this portion of the repoi
a serious and earnest attention. Let this doctrine be acte<
on energetically and honestly, and we shall hear no mor
of barn-burners and anti-renters. Mr. Walker says:
"The energetic American freeman can nnd does perforn
fur more effective tabor in a day, than what is called by tin
restrictioribis the pauper labor of Europe; and, therefore
the employer here can pay more for a day's toll to ou
workingmen. Measured by ihe day, the wages hero ma]
be higher than in Europe ; but, measured by the work dom
on that day, there is but little difference. And when at
our capitalists (as some tilrendy have) shall tind it to be thei
true interest, in addition to the wages paid to the America!
workman, to allow him voluntarily, because it augment
the profits of capital, a fair interest in those profits, and ele
vate him to the rank of a partner in the concern, we ma;
then defy all competition. This is the same principle illus
trated by uniform experience, proving that he who rents hi
farm, builds hie house, sails his ships, or conducts any othe
business upon shares, realizes the largest return ; and tha
he who works by the job produces more in the same timi
than the laborer whose wages are paid by the day. Tin
skill, energy, and industry, the interest and pride in sue
cess, the vigilance and perseverance that will be manifesto
by our intelligent wotkinginen under such a system, wil
far more than refund to capital such reasonable participa
lion in its profits, and enable such American establish
metits to supply all the nations of the world. The in
(reduction of litis system will be voluntary, because i
is most just and beneficial to all parties. It is the parti
cipation of ail our people in the government, that i
one great cause of our prosperity ; and the participation o
our workingmon in the profits of our industrial establish
merits would exhibit similar results. Our whale am
other fisheries present strong evidence of the success al
tending American industry, when our intelligent froementhe
workinginen of the concern?stimulated by ajustpai
ticipation in the profiis, have driven from the mostdistan
seas the whale-ships of most other nations, and nearl
monopolized this pursuit. The intelligent workingmon c
our country are far better prepared for the adoption of thi
truly republican system than those of any other nation
and litis elevation of the toiling millions of America to i
I ... v.,. in 1'iuiiin wi WIH ' "|'i .
mads lmitful only liy their industry, will yet enjoy as greii
a triumph tin that unlettered trade and untaxed and unrr
strlcted labor with which it ought to be, and certainly ye
wdl be, proudly associated. Under this system, tholaborm
men, whilst they received the lull wages horetolbro allowei
them, would ul.-o participate to a reasonable extent in th
prolits, as an addition to their wages, and a tnoi
powerful and certain stimulus to render their labor mor
productive, and dins increase, lor the benetit of all cor
| earned, the capitalists and working men, the prolits c
the establishment What is called the pauper labor c
Europe, is already interior to our labor, but would bo rer
tiered still more |xjwerloss to compote with us when lal>o
| here participated with capital in the profits. When w
, relh ct that the working Ireemen of the Union must consti
tnte the grent mass of ihe |>eople, whose votes will connrr
, the government and direct the policy of tlie nation, the su
lienor comfort, education, intelligence, and informatioi
necessarily resulting to them from this improvement ofou
I social system, is important to the successful progress am
, perpetuity ol our tree institutions, anil must be grateful t
every republican patiiotand lover of mankind. Whilst at
have derived great benefits from the new tariff, it is labo
j dial has realized the largest reward. It was contended b;
, the advocates of protection, that it enhanced the wages c
i labor, and that low duties would reduce wages here to th
rate allowed lor what they call the pauper labor of Europe
. On tho comrary, the opponents of high tariffs insisted tns
. labor, led to seek freely the markets of the world, wouli
lind lor its products the best prices, and, as a eonserpienoe
the highest reward for the labor by whioh they were pro
! duced. The duties have been reduoed; and yet wage
t have advanced, and uro higher now than under any pro
tec live taritf. There are many more workinginen concern
, ed in 'tlmr pursuits than in manufactures, and with mud
less ot machinery as a substitute lor lalnir; and by depress
ing agriculture, commerce, and navigation?by restriclini
their business and the markets for their product*?th
wages ol Ihose engaged in such pursnits are reduced ; man
; workmen also lose employment: and, competing for Worl
, in manufactures, the wages of all are diminished
We shall offer no comments on this extract; it speak
l for itself, aid commends itself forcibly to the rnpttaJi<
as well as the laborer. The "br>rnr siptem of plunder'
has received >ts deathblow; and the people have not
had sufficient experience to prevent :bem from again being
deceived by the specious name* of "home protection," the j
" American system," and other delusive phrases, which (
. were adopted by monopolists, speculators, and the **money
power," to secure partial privileges, and, under the
sanction of law, rob the toiler, and oppress, with cruel
