The circumstances in which the friends of the Adminis

the result of the present contest will decide the
question —What shall be our National policy.
There can, now, be no middle course. Shall the
American system prevail, or shall the system of the

[ Should we give place, to the expression of the feel
ings and sentiments of those, who, like the author of
the following Communication . have turned from the
error of their ways in this State, our columns would
lie crouded loo mach just on the eve of an election
Mr. Editor,
I must tell you, that, but a few month«
ago, I was a strenuous Jacksonite, and had been
ever since his coming out for the office of Présidant,
and had his election have come on six months ago,
he most assuredly would have received my warmest
support. As I had never taken the thing into con
sideration at all, and thought he would do well
enough ; but upon more mature and deliberate con
sideration, I found many, yes, a great many objec- j
lions against giving Gen. Jackson my suffrage, and -,
as many more reasons for turning it for the present
Administration, which are too obvious to any think
ing or well meaning man, to need specification
But what vexes me most is, that I should be tanta
lized by some of my old associates (Jacksonites)
with the name of *• turn-coat"—because I bava
thought proper to think for myself, and not to be led
away by any set of designing men who are only am
bitious for their own preferment, (if you will allow
me to use (he expression) if it were to send the
country to the d— I.
I sincerely hope that every man will follow my
example by weighing the question well in their own
minds before it is too late, and mind not whatothera
say ; but arm themselves with the right spirit (coir*
paratively speaking) as the'Apostle Paul did, forsa- -
king the evil and embracing the goal.

exerting their patronage ami influence of course for tho

against him ut the electoral poll. With these greut advan
tages in our favour, he must be a blind Adamsite indeed»
who dont own our (Jackson's) victory certain at the Elec
