the unwillingness of the People Id believe
in us existence, or irom me ranuence 01 ae-1
signing men, diverting their attention from
the quarter whence it approaches to a
source from which it can never come. This
is the old trick of those who would usurp
the government of their country. In the
name of Democracy they speak, warning
-the People against the influence of wealth
and the danger of aristocracy. History,
ancient and modern, is full of such examples,
Caesar became the master of the Roman peo
ple and the Senate under the pretense of
supporting the democratic claims of the lor
mer against the aristocracy of the latter;
Cromwell, in the character of protector of
the liberties of the People, became the dic
tator of England; an.I Bolivar possessed him
self of unlimited power, with the title of
his country's Liberator. There is, on the
contrary, no single instance on record of an
extensive and well-established republic being
changed into an aristocracy. The tenden
cies of all such Governments in their decline
is to monarchy; and the antagonist princi
ple to liberty, there is the spirit of faction
a spirit which assumes the character, and.'
in times of great excitement, imposes itself j partiality has exalted me, that there exists in
upon the People as the genuine spirit of free- the land a spirit hostile to their Lest interests;

in periods like this tint it behooves the Peo
ple to be most watchful of those to whom
they have intrusted p wer. And :il though
there is at times much difficulty in distin
guishing the false from the true spirit, a calm
and dispassionate investigation will detect
the counterfeit as well by the character of
its operations, as the results tint are produc
ed. The true spirit of liberty, although de
voted, preserving, bold, and uncompromis

erant and scrupulous as to the menns it rm-
ploys; whi'st th- spirit of party, asu:i)i:ic !

Before concluding, fellow-citizens, I must
tay something to you on the subject of the
parlies at this time existing in our country.
To me it appears perfectly clear that the in
terest of the country requires that the vio
lence of the spirit by which those parlies ate
at this time governed, must be greatly miti
gated, if not entirely extinguished, or conse
quences will ensue which are appalling to be
If parties in a Republic are necessary to
secure a decree of vigilance sufficient to
keep the public functionaries witiiin the
bounds of law and duty, at that point their
usefulness ends: beyond that, they become
destructive of public virtue, the parent of a
spirit antagonist to that nf liberty, and even
tually its inevitable conqueror. We have
examples of republics, where the love of
country and libeitv atone time were the
dominant passions of the whole mass ol citi
zens, and yet, wilh the continuance of the
name and forms of free government, not a
estige of these qualities remaining in the
Wmos of any one of its citizens. It was
the beautiful remark of a distinguished En
glish writer, that "in the Roman Senate Oc
tavius had a party, and Anthony a party, but
tic Commonwealth had none." Yt the
Senate continued to meet in the Temple of
L.iueny, 10 iaiK ot the sacredness and beau
ty of the Commonwealth, and ra7.eat the
statues of the elder Brutus and of the Curtii
and Decii; and the people assembled in the
forum, not as in the days of Camillus and the
Scipios, to cast their free votes for annual
magistrates, or pass upon the acts of the
Senate, but to receive from the hands of the
leaders of the respective parties, their share
of the spoils, and to shout for one or the
other, as those collected in Gaul or Egypt
and the lesser Asia would furnish the larger
dividend. The spirit of liberty had fled, and
avoiJing the abodes of civilized man had
sought protection in the wilds of Scy thia and
Scandinavia. And so under the operation
of tl.e same causes and influences it will fly
fromourCapitolland our forums. A calamity
so awful, not only to our country, but to the
world, must be deprecated by every patriot,
and every tendency to a state of things like

a tendency has existed -does exist. Al

sition to the will of a majority of the people. The

views. The National Bankite will rest content with
the President's endorsement "f Mr. Madison' opin
ion, and the stntes rights man will never forget how
beautifully he discourses upon a strict construction
of the Constitution. This chart of principles from
Genl Harrison, will only procrastinate the day of the
dissolution of the party that has raned him to power
and will but serve to embitter the opposition of the
seceders. Tbe time for deception bas past, and we

the notes of non ipecie paying bunk note at iti coun

We regret that the Bank bai becSl" forced to take thia
courw, and we can only coniole ourselves in the re
flection that "all's well that ends well." We can
not but hope that these frequent suspensions and fail
ures of baukinr institutions, will have a most favora
ble influence on the public mind, and that public at"
tention will be inquisitively directed to the system it
self. We have lone thought that a veil regulated
Bank would be as difficult to find as an honeit rogue
or a truthful liar, and that a system that is in itself
vicious, can never be productise of good. At all
events this experiment that Missouri has made in ban.
kin;, (modern hanking we mean.) must go far to sat
isfy the minds of tbe people that a Democratic Bank
is a solecism in language, an J tbe soonei Democracy
cuts looie from it the better perhaps for both. There
may be something congenial between whiggery and
banks, bat we insist that there is no fellowship be
tween gennine Democracy and the swindling, law-defying,
soulless things which we have among os now-a-rlnvs.

"Many an unwise parent labors hard, and

leaving enough to give his chi'drcn a start
in the world, as it is called. Setting a young
man afloat with money left him by his rela

one who cannot swim: ten chances to one he
will lose his bladders and go to the bottom.
Teach him to swim, nnd he will never need
the bladders. Give your child a sound eudca

See too, that his morals are pure, his mind

Iu all the diversities of life, Mrs. II. nobly acted her
part. As wif, mother, neighbor, friend, she could
not be excelled in the discharge of the varied duties
of either. Those who knew her best were those who
most loved her. Possesin the mildest of christiau
spirits, the love of piety, of religion, was her ruling
passion. If M to err be human," in her, of all others,
error was motf pardonable, and more seldom perpe
trated. Her philosophical mind was never betray ed
into any of the errors of the day. Firm and stead

Iter an earthly treasure, aa only guide. Mrs. B. had
long been under the rod of affliction: for fonrteen oi
C ft ecu years she had scarce known a day free irom
pain. And from the commencement of winter, she
had on only one or two occasion been able to leave
her room. She bad long labored under a Catamenial
and Uterine affection, with incipient Phthisis, which
complication of disease was increased in remar
kable rlegree on the commencement of winter;
and notwithstanding the best exeitions of one, and
occasionally two, of the medical faculty, she con
tinued to sink, becoming every day more emaciated
with increased complication of disease. About 4

intimation to her friends that farther exertion by him
was needless she wasevidently dying. Her friends,
many of whom were in attendance, collected around

her last words. Her strength of voice seemed to in
