Mr. liolton, ot ueorgia, eiglit j-earsa-go, will serve to show the groundlessness of Mr. Cuthbert'sronduct. New York, May 17, 1833. Mi Dear Sir: I have received vour letter . . j of last evening, requesting me to state my o- nininn nf the nowers of Congress on the sub- I w J tJ ject of slaves and slave, y, and of the exis tence of any wifh or design on tne part oi Northern men to mtenere witn tne security or regulation of that species of property. My sentiments on tins suoject, my aear sir, hnvp often been publicly expressed; but I have no objection to repeat the dec'araiion f lipm if it lift thought bv vou that such a . .- n j j m declaration might, in the smallest degree, aid the friends of union and the Constitution in the South in dispelling predjudices which are so industriously fostered, and in quieting ag itations so unnecessarily kept alive. Tn mv onihion. the domestic slavery of the Southern States is a subject within the exclu sive control ot the states -themselves; and this, I am sure, is the opinion of the whole North. Congress hasnoautnority to inter fere in the emancipation of slaves, or in the treatment of them in any of the States. This was so resolved by tne wouse oi represen tatives, when Congress sat in this city, in -r i 17U0, on tne report oi a comniuiee consisi Infr almost entire.lv of Northern members: o V onrl I Hr not know an instance of the expres sion of a different opmion in either House of Congress since. 1 cannot say inat particu lar individuals might not possibly be found who supposethat Congress may possess some power over the subject, but I do not knowa ny such persons, and, if there be any, I am sure they are few. The servitude of so great a portion of the population of the South is un doubtedly rega-ded at the North as a great evil, moral and political, and the discussions upon it which have recently taken place in the Legislatures of several of the slave-holding Statei have been, read with very deep in terest But it is regarded, nevertheless, as an evil, the remedy for which lies with those Legislatures themselves, to be provided and applied according to the it own sepseof poli cy and duty. The imputations which you say, and say truly, are constantly made against the North, are, in my opinion, entirely des titute ol any just foundation. I have endeav ored to repel them, so far as has been io my potver, on all proper occasions; and for a fuller expression of my opinions, both on th power of Congress, and on the groundless charges against Northern men, I beg leave to refer you to my remarks in the debate on Air toots resoluiiou, in 1S30. I am, mv dear sir, with much true regard, your obedient servant. Daniel Webster. To John Bolton, Esqr. CARRYING,OUT THE PRINCIPLE. The course of C. B. Penrose, Esq. in de clining to address a public meeting at Har- risburg, when urged to do so, on the ground of his being recently appointed to office un der the General Government, is universally commended by the Harrison democratic press of the country. The case of Mr. Penrose may well serve as an illustration of the differ ence between Locofoco and Whig piactice, and indeed of the whole question. During the late canvass, Mr. Penrose, as one oitre People of Pennsylvania, was strenuous in his exertions, and never slow in answering a call to addi ess his fellow-citizens against Van Bu renism, and in favor of the Peoples candidate for the Presidency. But the election is now over. The popular cause has triumphed. And a place of trust under the Federal Gov ernment having been tendered to Mr. Pen rose and accepted, it is evident that he could not now pursue a similar course without doing exactly that which President Jackson denounced in his Inaugural, but which his whole army of officeholders practised with an intentness and industry which justified the Public in believing that their continuance in office depended upon their exertions. The difference between the Jackson-Van Burcn system on the one hand, and that of General HARRISON on the other, may be stated in a few words. Messrs. Van Bu ren & Company contented themselves with the promulgation of a theory against the in terference ot Federal officers with the free dom of elections; and, as if to treat resolu tion" for the theory, they abetted, if they did not aid and counsel, a totally opposite course in practice. But President HARRISON does not stop with the promulgation of a the ory. It is the purpose of his administration to "carry out the principle" in good faith, by making the practice of the officers of Gov ernment conform strictly to that principle. Hence the issue of the Reform Circular; and hence, as we doubt not, the respect which will be paid, by all parties concerned, to its recommendations or mandates Bal. Pat, If we may be permitted, for a moment to withdraw our thougts fiom the afflicting dis pensation which has so suddenly overwhelm ed the country, and to cast a hasty glance at the future, we would seize the occsion of announcing the new PRESIDENT'S arri val at the seat of Governmet, to congratulate the country that, under the happy operation of our s; stem ol Government, the chief Ex ecutive power devolves so quiotly and prace ably from the hands of one citizen to those of another; and more especially to congratu late the country that he who now succeeds the late President HARRISON is not only a man of honor, of talent, and of character, well known to the country, but that he owes his elevation to the high place he now fills to the prevahnce of those same princip'es which put President HARRISON in that place before him. President TYLER is a Whig a true Whig; and we risk nothing in expressing our entire confidence that he will fulfil, in all their extent, the expectations of the People when they bestowed on him an office from which it was possible, as thpy knew, he might be derated to the Chi;-f Magistracy of the Union. He is pledged to this, not only by his high character, but by his known sentiments and his unspctud patri otism. On the other hand, we risk as little in pre dicting that the great majority of the Peo ple of the country will give to him at once and in advance their full confidence and sup port, not doubting in any degree that h e will prove himself a true exponent of those great principles for which they have so long -truo--gled, and struggled at las-; successfully. . ADVERSITY. He that has never known adversity is but ha'f acquainted with others, or with himself. Constant success shows us but oue side of the world; for as it surrounds us with f. jend. who will tell us only our merits, so it silences those enemies from whora alone we can learn our; defects.
