TO TltE DEMOCRACY OF MICHIGAN. NUMBER I. The candidate nominated by the Domocrotie State Convention, for re-election to the offices of Governor, Lieutonant Governor, and Represen tative of Michigan in Con gross, are identified with the democracy of the nation aa well as of the atate. Thoir principle! have been uniform. They have never changed. They have sup. ported, throughout, the general policy, and the important moosuroe, which distinguished the administration of Gon. Jackson. They aup. ported the election of the democratic successor f that illustrious potriot, and they continue to sustain his admin utration. I)y the merits there, fore of these administrations, and by those of Mr. JcrrsasoN and Madison, the democratic candi. dates. are willing to be triod, and to stand or fill in the estimation of the people of Michigan. Of their individual virtues and characters, and of - tho merit of the state administration, we shall speak hereafter. The poople of Michigan have had abundant opportunity of observing and ap predating them, and a very concise review, in the sequel of these numbers, will bo amply suffi cient to refresh the memories ef those who may have permitted the transactions of the day to pass from their minds. .- The policy and principle of tho democratic administration have been to give a strict con. traction to the powers conferred by the consti. tution upon the general government, and to as sume the exercise of no authority not expressly delegated to it by that instrument, or not indis. pensably necessary to carry into effect its clearly delegated powers. With this principle as tho rule of his action, Genoral Jackson refused to sanction local im. provemcnts by the federal governmont. He arrested all expenditures of the money of the nation upen roads and canals not strictly no. tional in their character. The effect of this "figid adherence to the limited authority of the 'general government, has been to prevent the ex. haustton of the public treasure upon local, un productive and extravagant objects, and to ex. tinguish the entiro debt of the nation, incurred both in th past and the present age. Another effect has been to induce the state governments to turn their attention to the construction of roads and canals, and thus to multiply those valuable improvements, within nine or ten years, to a greater extent than they could have boon multiplied in fifteen years by the general gov. eminent. Tho constitution has, by this wise course, been redeemed from attempted violation, and the country, in evory section of tho union, improved beyond all anticipation by the local le gislatures, who alone powossod the constitution, al authority to improve it. General Jackson constantly urged the reduc tion of the public revenue to the wants of the government. One of tho last important meas ures proposed in congress, in accordance with this policy, during his administration, was the redaction of the dutirs upon imported articles, not interfering with home manufactures, to tho amout of two or throo millions of dollars. The bill was strenuously and persoveringly opposed by the coalition of nullifiors and tariff men in the Senate ; and, although passed by tho democracy in that body, it passed at so late a day of tho scs. eion,' that tho House of Representatives, under the influonc3 of the same coaltion, and with the hope of effecting another distribution project, failed to roliove the nation from the taxes which the Senate proposed to reduce or repoal. General Jackson resisted all schemes to raise or keep up a system of taxes and revenue for the purpose of distributing the surplus money in the troosury among tho states. lie denied the pow. cr, an repudiated the policy, of exacting money from the people in order to roturn it to the states. Although, in order to remedy the evils with which the Union was menaced by an ovor. flowing treasury, he reluctantly sanctioned the first distribution act, he and his friends success, fully opposed the efforts of tlw coililion to fas ten that system upon the nation as a part of its permanent policy. Tho democracy of the Sonato put their veto upon tho second distribution bill passed by tho House, and thut arrested a most pernicious innovation upon tho republican policy of the country. General Jackson defeated tho combination in South Carolina, (formed to nullify the laws, and to dissolvo the Union. While he opposad, on .all occasions, the usurpation of powers, by the general government, not conferred upon it, ho successfully manifested his determination to maintain its rightful authority, to execute the constitutional ucts of Congress, and to preserve and defend the sacred ark of American union.- Whilo ho strictly supported the state govern, ments in all their reserved rights, " as thj most competent administrations of our domestic con. corns," ho maintained a s'eady resolution to preserve the gsncral governmont, in its whole constitutional vigor, as the sheet-inchor of our peaco at home, and our safety abroad." It is behaved that no President, since the time of Mr. Jefferson, more sacredly observed these cardinal republican maxims ; and it is certain that no other President th in General Jackson, or Gen. cral Washington, could so promptly and effect, nally have put an end to nullification and threat ened rebellion, such aa were organized and set on foot in South Carolina, under the auspicos and guidance of John C. Calhoun. General Jackson prcvante 1 the renewal of the Dank of the United Statos, because he deemod its constitutionality doubtful, and bocaus3 of its wielding its immonso p jcuniary power and resources to control the government, and to cor. rupt the press and tho people of tho country Whatever difference of opinion may exist as to the constitutionality of a bank, of theexpodioncy and salutary icsult of tho prostration of the lata national bank, thero can exist no doubt in tho mind of any ganuine democratic republican. Its interference in elections, its exorbitant power. its vast pecuniary influence, itsexsrtionsto revo lutionize the administration of the government, were alone sufficient to demand its destruction cs a national institution. One or th Fxofle. From the New-York Times, July 93. LATE FROM ENGLAND. The packet ship St. James, Capt. Sabor, ar rived yestorday from London, bringing papers to the 20th June. The principal item of intclli. gence is, THE DEATH or the KING or ENGLAND, who expired at Windsor Castle, at 20 minutes past three o'clock, on the morning of the 20th. 'PI.. A Ul 1 --k..-. ..J anaval members of the Royal Family were present. The following is the list Bulletin which was issued by his physicians t Tub Last Bulletin, at St. Janes' Palace, London. Windsor Castle, Monday, June 19. The King continues in a very weak and feeble state, notwithstanding his Majesty bad some quiet sleep in the night. M After transacting his usual business yester day, his Majesty received the sacrement from the hands of the Archbishop of Canterbury, with attention and great apparent comfort. (Signed) "HENRY HALFORD, ' MATTHEW JOHN TIERNEY, DAVID DAVIES." The utmost anxioty was evinced in every part of London, on the 19th of Juno, to ascertain tbe state of his Majesty's health, and crowds were to bo seen watching tho arrival of the different coaches by the W cstern road, in tho hope of ob taining information. At St. Jame's Palaco, the number of visitors who left their names was greater than on any previous day and the na ture of the bulletin then exhibited was not by any means calculated to allay the previous alarm. Unhappily, the private accounts which arrived from Windsor in the course of the day, rather added to than diminished the effect of the previ ous renorts. Towarda evening, it was sla ted that an express had arrivod, announcing the demise of his Majesty, and second editions were tmbliahnd hv MvnraJ of the evening papers an. nouncing the event. Many of the shops in the it, the Strand, and other great thoroughfares, were partially closed, and even at the Mansion. house a placard waa exhibited, announcing the death of his Majesty. The rumors were, how ver, speedily contradicted, the placard waa ta ken down, and our cotemporarioe were compel. led to publish third editions to contradict their previous announcement. Tbe mslancholly event was finally announced and a general expression of sorrow seemed to bo manifested. Tho late King had been emphati cally the father of his people ;" and it was fully believed that M it would be long 'ere they should look upon his like again." He is succeeded in his throne by the Princess Victoria, daughter of the lata duke of Kent, who has recently come of age. BANK OF WASHTENAW. Having examined the condition and af. fairs of tho Dank of Washtenaw, and being requested to express my opinion of its sit uation, I take pleasure in stating my firm belief that the institution is as safe and sol. vent as any Dank in the State; that it's af. fairs appear to have been managed with prudence, and that it is entitled to the con. iidence of the public. The Bank holds abundant securities for the prompt and faithful conduct of its agents and I am fully assured that every dollar due the Institution is well secured. The Dank having given its assent to the suspension law, its notes are receivable for all dues to tho State. E. N. BRIDGES. Bank Commissioner, State of Michigan, From the Globe. " Hard money for our common transac tions. Bank notes, equivalent to specie, for the commerce of the country. We quote the above sentiment recently ofierrcd by Governor Cam,bcll, of Vir. ginia, at a dinner given to that gcntlemnn by a number of his neighbors and friends. It expresses, as briefly and concisely as words can do it, an opinion entertained by a large portion the democracy of the country- Bead .The Liverpool Mail, an Eng. lish paper, makes use of tho following lan. guage in relTerence to tho exportation of specie from this country to England: "Mr. Diddle must dictate his own terms to the Government of America. He must PUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT. He must drain tho deposito banks of SPECIE OR PERISH." Thus by becoming involved in a foreign debt through a National Bank are we'dicta. ted to, by a serf of a British Crown. The United States ,Bank has been a millstone a. bout the neck of tho nation, and if we had not cut loose from it, ere this our glorious country would havo been drawn into the maelstrom of irretrievable ruin. Shall we again trust it ? The people's voice, like " tho sound of many waters" thunders ne VEit. Detroit Weekly rost. Specie Circular. Deforo tho first of September, tho Specie Circular will be one of the most popular measures of Gen. Jack, son's administration. The whig presses are beginning to havo the good sense to cease abusing it, and many of tho old He. ro s honesl opponents are yielding a late but willing assent to tho wisdom and pro. priety of this great measure. Tho only thing to bo regretted about it is that it was not adopted five years sooner. Boston Post. Good Example. The Planters Dank of Natchez Mississippi, has resolved to pay six per cent, interest on its notes presented for redemption, from the time of presenta tion, and on checks for deposits from their date, until it resumes specie pay. ments. Pork. Tho Cincinnati Evening Post states that a contract has been made at that place to deliver a large quantity of pork, at $2 50 per cwt. Emigrants. Thero arrived at New. York on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, two thousand three hundred and sixty.four passengers and tho amount of gold brought with them is calculated to exceed seven thousand sovereigns. The following is from tho pen of tho veteran editor of the Richmond Enquirer: The present paper system is wretchedly defective. It must be completely reorgan. ized, or it must bo entirely removed. Dut all sudden transitions and violent mcas. urcs would bo nVschievous. Our plan would bo this : Let the State Banks resume Spesie pay. mcnt as soon as possible. This is the first and great object we ought to effect.

MNo, please your Magesty," replied Grant, 'but wo Scots have a saying that it is right to so. cure a friend at Court." "You are a sly fellow," said the monarch, "recollect for tho future that you have no occasion at this court for any friend but myself." Grant rose afterwards with great rapidity, and was intrusted with the command of the most important fortresses in the kingdom. An Insinuation. Tho editor of the Mo Li!e Register conveys a delicate hint in the following significant paragraph: "Will a certain good natured friend of ours, bo pleased to cast his eye on the ivory head of the new dark silk umbrella, under which he is now luxuriating, and see whoso name is lightly scratched on it."
