During the administration of Mr. Adams
(which was "scolded'' for its extravagance)
the average expenses for each year were
less than twelve millions and u half of dol
lars. The average expenses of the " re
trenching" administration which succeeded
that of Adams, was about eighteen millions
of dollars. And now, the average yearly
expense of the retrenching aitd reforming
administration of Martin Van Buren,
amounts to more than Thirty Seven Mil
frVrsjjf Dollars! Is this the sort of reform
that trie country expected, when the pres
ent administration was placed in power? It
may beery pleasant and agreeable to the
office-holders, who live upon the fatness
thus drawn Irom the public treasurv. Hut
is it BaM3lnhtoj;v to the people who bear the
burdens f lITIot, there is but one remedy;
but happily, that remedy is simple and easy.
It ;i to withdraw power Irom a cold and
cunning politician, that has abused it, and
confide it in one who never vet abused a
trust, or was found unequal to the wouk be

culty, let them turn, for an honest agent, to
oneot themselves. Let them dismiss Irom
their employ the "dandy of the White
House, who sports an English coach and
loreign out-riders, and who is so deeply
pledged to the interests of the office-hold

OCT Tho Cincinnati Republican enumer
ates many counties, such as Morgan, Pick
away, Ross, Scioto, Miami, Jefferson, Bel
mont, Cuyahoga, Fayette, Licking and
Stark, in all of which the Harrison Ticket
has gained immensely. The elections in
Ohio, like the current of a river, are going
all in onetlirectioii. Tin Cincinnati Re
publican of the 13 ult. says:
"In yesterday's paper, we noticed a num
ber of counties where the Harrison ticket
had succeeded, and in almost every instance,
by increased majorities. To-day, we make
addition of some other counties where the
cause of reform is going bravely on.
"lho Harrison ticket has triumphed in
Trumbull, Geauga, Medina and Summit, and
Lake; the last, a county, made at the late
session of the Legislature, has given a Har
rison majority of 939. In Lorain, also, the
loco focos are nowhere. Old Cuyahoga has
done the thing nobly. With such a glorious
commencement, who can doubt that we
shall carry the slate in the fall, (or Harrison
and Tyler by an overwhelming majority ?"
We received the following letter yester
day, from a friend in the country. It speaks
for itself: .
Circlkvili.k, April 8th, 1840.
I informed ''u yesterday of the result ol
the elections on Wednesday last in two
townships in Pickaway county, wherein
the Harrison boyshave a -gain of U'.'rj! over
and above their majority last fall.
I hive since heard from Chillicothe and
Green Township in Ross the result is as
follows: In (Jrecn, Harrison majority is
100, last fall it was 54 against us. In Chil
licothe, Harrison majority is 231, last fall it
was 74, as well as I recollect.
Thus sir, you may rest assured of a final
and mist overwhelming overthrow of
Van B irenism in nil the hilis and vales
of the Scioto. The foregoing are but the
premonitory symptoms of a complete) res
toration of the body politic to its wonted
health and vigor.
The Mnncipnl election which took place
on the 2Mh ult. in the town of Indianapolis.

the Administration party not one of their

President of the Council exceeds thrpe to
one; and for Conneilmen is a trifle smaller.
This is the first victory the Whigs have

To the Editors of the Winchester Republican:
Gf.nti.emkn: From the time that I first
knew any thing of the principles that govern
the two great political parlies that now di
vide our country, I have proiessed to be a
Republican of the Jeffersonian school. It
is well known that 1 have not, at any time,
engaged in political matters, further than an
exercise of the free suffrage guarantied to
me by the laws ol my country, so lar, 1
have on all occasions fearlessly exercised
that privilege. I was a warm supporter of
General Jackson's administration, with the
exception of the Force Bill and the removal
of the deposites, which no man, I conceive,
holding State Right principles, could toler
ate. I have, also, supported Martin Van
Buren, steadily and unflinchingly, notwith
standing I have alwavs been opposed to his
Sub-Treasury scheme, supposing that, when
tound impracticable, it would eventually be
abandoned by the party, but when I find that
this measure, so oh eclionable to a large
majority of the people of the United States,
is so pertinaciously tidhcard to, and now
about to be fastened on the people; and
viewing the passage ot such a law by Con
gress as fatal in its tendency to the banking
institutions of the country, (the prostration
of which must bring ruin on at least two
thirds of our business men) together with
the hostility manifested by the Administra
tion party in th;.' Senate of my native Stale
against tlise institutions, thereby destroy
ing confidence, and paralyzing at one blow
the energies and industry of the whole coun
try, I cannot, under existing circumstances.
(and my mind has not been r.inde up hastily
on the subject.) consent to support any
longer an Administration, whose measures,
if carried out, must tend to make the rich
richer and the poor poorer. Being thor
oughly convinced of these facts, 1 am not
one of those who will go for the Adminis
tration right or wrong. If my vote can in
any way contribute to bring about a better
state of things, mv highest object is at

lotte sville Virginia Republican, as a small
sign merely of what is going on in one
county in the old Dominion:
SiGNiNo Off. Mr. Alexander, Sir, I have
seen that the Sub-Treasury party ol this
county have put my name down as one of
the Committee of Vigilance. I wish to say
that I decline acting with them or for them,
for I am opposed to Mr. Van Buren and
his measures, and shall vote for Gen. Har
rison and John Tyler, at the ensuing Presi
dential election, 'in 1C36, I voted for Mr.
Van Buren, but cannot do it again, as his
course is such that any man who desires
the prosperity and interests of his country
would be pursuing a suicidal course to wish
to see him at the head of affair, after the
3d of March, 1241.
Mr. Editor: Bo so good as to say to those
who put my name on the Van Buren Com
mittee of Vigilance for Albemarle county,
that 1 shall not vote for Mr. Van Buren for
the Presidency, as 1 did in 183(3, nor any of
his Sub-Treasury followers,
We have also been authorized to say that
Mr. Jonathan Barksdale declines acting as
one of the Committee of Vigilance, as he
is opposed to Mr. Van Buren, and all the
ul-treasury projocts.

SATURDAY, MAY 9, 0 8 10,
Every day we hear of some mighty gath
erings of tiie people in favor of the gallant
Harrison. Tho hard cider, log cabin boys
coma in thousands to join in the general
hurrah; nnd old soldiers who have fought
our battles anil who have met the roar of
England's artillery, are indignant and in
sulted when they hear slanders propagated
upon the fair fame of their old General, who
has done so much to add to the glorious his
tory of our countr.
A mee'iag of the surviving soldiers of the
revolution and those who fought under
Gen. Harrison during tho last war. took
place on the 13th inst. at Washington, Ma
son county, Kentucky. The editor of the
Cincinnati Gazette, who was present, says:
"Of the old veterans of the revolution, there
were but a small, though precious, band
present. Of those who fought and bled
under the brave 'Hero of Tippecanoe, Fort
Meigs and the Thames,' there was a goodly
number; and of those who came from the
surrounding country to look, perhaps for
the last time, on these 'fathers of tho Re
public,'' there was a number far exceeding
ail' former gathering in old Kentucky, and
was second only to the great Ohio Conven
tion in February last. To count such a
multitude was entirely out of the question.
We did make tho attempt at one time,
when two processions (of probably a mile
in length each,) arrived at the same lime
one from Maysville, and the other from
Mays Lick; and, after counting about 5,300,
we gave it up, and then made an estimate
of lho whole number present at Ten Thou
sand! Addresses .were made by Gen. Collins,
General Chambers, Gov. Metcalfe, Col.
Key, Gov. Moorehead, W. W. Southgate,
Can. Leslie Combs, R. JI. Menefee, M. V.
Thompson, nnd others of Kentucky's most
brilliant and most talented sons, and by
Richard Douglass, Esq., of Ohio.
The speeches fully justified the great
expectations excited by the reputation of
the orators. None were disappointed all
was pleasure all enthusiasm, and all for
the "Farmer of North Bend." In answer
to a question from Mr. Southgate whether
"Old Mason" would give "Old Tin," a thou
sand majority, the response, from an hun
dred voices, was veslyes!! more than
The speakers, one and all, assured the
people that the vote of "Old Kentuck"
was sure for Gen. Harrison; and if any
evidence had been wanted to establish that
fact, the assembled thousands ol the honest
yeomanry of that noble State, then within
hearing all in full chorus for "Did Tippe
canoe'" was enough to satisfy any man, of
the truth ot their asset tion. Bulletin.
General Harrison is the author of the act
ot l ongress giving pensions to tiie soldiers
of the Revolution, and was then a United
States Senator, and chairman of the com
mittee on Military Affairs. He was inde
fatigable in advancing his bill, "allowing
pensions without regard to the property ui
the soldier."
Let us, for a moment, turn to Martin
Van Buren, and see w hat ho has done for
those brave men w ho shed their blood and
expended their fortunes in the glorious
cause of Independence.
On lho ICth ol August, 1 G J I , a conven
tion met at Albany, in the State of N. Y.
to prepare anew Constitution for that State.
Mr. Van Buren w as a member of the
convention, from tho county of Otsego. In
tho course of their proceedings, the consid
eration of the right of suffrage came before
the convention. Mr. Van Buren address-
d the convention, and introduced argu
ments "to prove that taxation was the true
basis ot Representation, and that all those
who did not pay taxes, should be excluded
rom voting. Mr. Russell opposed the
proposition and said: "it would disfran
chise many who ought to vote. He recol
lected a Revolutionary soldier in his town,
who was at tne seige ol Quebec, and ano
ther who was at the storming of Stony
Point, and neither would have a vole, if this
motion prevailed."
Mr. an Buren, m reply, said, "l ew ol
those patriots are now living, and of that
few the number is daily diminishing. In
fifteen years, the grave will have covered
all those who now survive. Was it not
then unwise to hazard a wholesome provis
ion, lest in its operation it might affect those
few individuals for a very short time." See

will, as we have every reason to believe, i!
that niost'dangerous act should bo passed,
unu a resting place ana a saie lodgment lor
the whole in the pocket of the President;
and whereas a remedy for these and the
many manifest evils, now afllicting the
country, can only be sought in the change
of the present administration and a return
buck to the old and well tried republican
principles and landmarks.
Resolved, That we heartily approve of
tho nominations of Gkn. William IIkskt
Harhison, for the Presidency and John
Tvler, for the Vice Presidency, and that,ai

than our duty to use all honorable and fair
means to promote their election.

PLES' CANDIDATE, and as a battery
against w hich the spoils parly may hurl
their slanderous shafts without any olhor
effect than a return on their own heads
with accumulated force.
Resolved, That we have the most unqual
ified detestation for the recent unholy and
corrupt alliance between tl.e "Ncthern man
with Southern principles," and the "South

that they are only held together by the "co

bill to charter an office holders' Bank.
Resolved, That the only remedy, for thu
present disastrous times, is a change of Ad
ministration, and the establishment of a
well regulated National Bank.
Resolved, That we cannot refrain from
expressing our most unqualified disappro
bation of the provisions of the currency
bill, as proposed at the latt session of the
Missouri Legislature.
