Tuesday MUenitur, Sept. 1. SECRETARY Me LANE. TltO Globe quotes as “misrepresentation No. 5,” t statement mnde by us, of Secretary Me Lane's absence from Washington. The Secretary it says, has constantly remained in the City, though occn. wonaljy sick. Secretory Woodbury, (whom wo stated to ho at his post,) is admitted by the Globe to l>e absent, though in the neighborhood, and for a short time. So that instead of the Government being in the hands ot Woodbury nod '1’aney, it is in those of McLanc and 1 aney, two Federalists of the most unequivocal dye. We udveried to the fact only to observo how curious it was, that in the ascendancy ol a party arrogating exclusive right to be the sue* ecssor ol the old Republican Party, and which through its organs, the most conspicuous of which nrc also old federal Papers, is incessantly stigma. Using its adversary ns being identified with the Fe. ■dernl Party ot 1812, there should not only be. a ma> jority of tho Cabinet Federalists, but that the whole direction of affairs was for tho time, center fd in two Federalists of tho Hartford type—for Mich notorously, are Taney and Me Lane. Hr d;«. trust i>>t. those gentlemen’s private or public worth, on that account; hut if the party prints on the other side are to be believed, (which wo admit is not al xcay» tho case,) McLano and Taney aro not worthy of the confidence which their station implies. Khali wo remind the Public of the unremitting abuse of Mr. Webster, as a Federalist, by the Globe, the Enquirer, and tho whole Treasury-fed handy Khali we remind it of the uninterrupted denunciation which pursues every gentleman of that school, who happens to he found in support of Mr. Clay, and the broad and unqualified assertions that such were, and still arc “against tlicir coun •try?” (this is the phrase of the eloquent “Tell.”) •Kuch being the fact, we feel not only justified in •calling attention to the absolute controul which Federalists now exercise at Washington hut to in. voke merited contempt on the profligacy which ap. peals to popular prejudice against that Party, while it avails itself of all the friendly talent which it can coax from its rank. Wo think not the less respectfully of McLanc nnd 1 aney, that they were Federalists; but who can feel any respect for their independence? In what Attitude do they present themselves? In the attitude of men sacrificing every thing which in dependent men hold dear, for office: Submitlinc to hear their Party abused, its patriotism question, ed, its principles traduced, i'.s very name used as a bug-bear to excite popular alarm and prejudice— pocketing every affront and indignity, in order that they may pocket the perquisites and influence of office ! Do they approve of Jackson? Do they -sanction the Jack Cadcism of his Veto Message? •Do they fail to sec, or can they pretend not Xo condemn, that jacobinical and demagogue spirit, "which for the sake of retaining power, has endeavored to engage the ignorance, poverty «nd prejudice of the country in a warfare against intelligence and wealth? Do they, "Disciples of Hamilton, approve these things? We t ay they do not and cannot. Excluded by their politics from Office, during a largo portion of their lives, and unknowing of its sweets, until the «ra of Jacksonisin, that glorious period of the remission of ail political sins, upon the simple condition of huzzaing for the Greatest and Best—these Gentle, men, who have experienced the difficulty of obtain ing, are resolved to cling to Office wliilo they may. And let them, for what we care—but let them who have absolutely confided the Republic to the keeping of two conspicuous, rank and unchang ed Federalists, surcease their profligate denuncia tions, of those whom they aro pleased to call Fed oralista for the unworthy purposes of deception and party gain. (L7* The Enquirer exhibits its calculation this morning; 21Q (whew!) for Jackson—43 for Clay— 26 doulitfi.il! We dare say ho believes what he says. His correspondents arc Blair at Washington, and CrossweJJ at Albany. If ho will take tho trouble to caleulMle what they hove at stake—how many thousands per annum, will slip through their fin gers, if tlco “Roman" is ousted—lie will arrivo at a just conclusion ns to the credit their statements are entitled to, and the interest they have in making calculations which will contribute to realize them selves. One circumstance is most evident.—and made so by tho obvious attempt to conceal it—that the deepest alarm pervades tho Jackson Administration prints. They know that a union of the Anti-Ma sons and National Republicans, if it take plaec, will, beyond the reach of doubt, deprive them of New York—almost as certainly of Pennsylvania. Wc need look no farther, for the cause and the just cause of the panic they exhibit. Their causo is sink ing, and they know it. !L7" Our neighbor says “Hitner is n poor crea tnre, and a notorious changeling in polities'.” Is that evidence of being ‘‘a poor creature,” O Editor of the Enquirer? If it be, Calvin Edson must bo a mountain of fit compared to thee. A changeling in politics! Had you then the courage to print the word? '1 ho Monongalian, printed at Morgantown in this State, observes in its last No. “Some weeks sinco we copied from the Rich mond Whig an estimate of tho result of the next Presidential election which allowed Mr. Clay 141 electoral votes. The time when it was made, was, wo think, .premature. The calculations of Mr. Pleasants, as to the movements of his own party may generally hold good—hut as to the effect they Will have upon "the write,” (or, as he says some, times when he is a little out of humor, upon “the honest but stupid many”) or as to the voico of the country, never.” We do not. pretend to understand the Editor whon he says “the time when it was made, was premature;” but we do understand hi* drift, when he puls in our mouths, words we never used, and never could have used (“the honest but stupid ma ny \* In the antecedent paragraph the Editor apol ogises “for offensive terms which had appeared un der the head of Editorial” towards Mr. Clay, in his absence. We hope ho will still follow tho rule of reparation, and disabuse his readers a* to the words he has been pleased, l.y mistake no doubt, to as. ..ril>« to us. TELI,—AND ITS AUTHOR. W« have regretted that our columns were elalined to repeif tye indecent per.onal attack made upon Mr. Clay, under .the signature of Tell; not that we would not take pleasure in affording the facility of vindication to Mf. play, or Rny othcr person illiberally assailed, or that we did not think that attack upon him, all things considered, one that peculiarly merited reply and scvpnty; hut he. cause llic several replies have partaken of person alily, and that their admission under the relations 'vc stood in to the author of Tell, might expose us to some misconstruction. Wo hud, however, no alternative, and in admitting that which follows, shall close the series, unless Tell Mm self, desires the use of our columns fora reply. "o have been requested to rrptihlieh Tall, by wny of amusement, and "ill do so if tv€ cafl spare the room. To TMtt Editors or tiib Wifia. Gentlemen—Permit me, through the inodium of y«ur paper, to say a few words to tho writer of u piece in the Richmond Enquirer, of the 21st ult., over the signature of “Toll.” I never road one word of it until yesterday, and was Induced to do so, from reading two pieces in your lust two papers, The spirit of the article certainly identifies the writer to he the late co-editor of tho Enquirer. 1 am somewhat aatonished that “TeH,” before wri. ting hit scurrilous ami personal abuse of Mr. Cal. Iioun and Wh Clay, did not recollect tho old adage, “that those who live in glass houses should never throw stones.” With respect to Mr. Calhoun, I do not even know him by sight, but that Ins private character as ,t gentleman has never been ques tioned by an) one, is a fact, which none, (but such ns like tho writer in tho Enquirer, prefer falsehood and slander to truth and justice) can have tho effrontery to deny, and with respect to Mr. C lay ho needs no culouy from my humble pen; his public acts are sufficenX to vindicate him from tho foul aspect-,«ns nml puny attacks of tt mere scribbler. Not content with saying every thing had of him a* a politician, Tell, to gratify a venge ful and malignant disposition, characteristic of the writer, aims a dastardly blow at his private re putation, and pronounces him a Gambler &. Black, lop. It will not be denied that Mr.Clay in hisyoung. or day did play, &, that very high; hut I have never heard him accused of a dishonorable act, and have always liccn told he promptly paid whenever he lost. I wonder if Tell cun say tho same thing, and in order to find out, I will ask him a few questions.—Q. Pray sir, did you, or did you not, go to a Faro-Bank in this city, in company with Mr. II. and Mr. C., and lose to the amount of §•'>,400. promising tho Banker, as soon as he clo. sed, you would give him a check for the amount? and did you not, on being asked for the check, pre tend to he so much intoxicated, that you did not know where you were, or what you had boon do ing? Further—Did not the Bankor agree to let you off with §200? Have you ever paid one dollar? Now, Mr. Tell, with this fact full in your recol lection, what right have you to hold up Mr. Clay or any one else, as a black.leg? And pray, Mr. Wieldcr-of the.birchen.rod, what right have you in your glorious state of “retiracy” to dictate to the People who shall he their President? I flic is to be made by such a man as “Toll,” it is high time the eyos of the People should be opened by VERITAS. To tiik Editors ok the Whio. (■cntlemen—l'lie perusal of your editorial article in this evening’s paper, headed “Small Pox," sur. prised me, and, I have no doubt, excited the same emotion in the minds of your numerous readers.— Your belief that “the existence of that disease in this city, is not known," is certainly true, as re spects myself, and those over whom 1 have any control. JOSEPH TATE, Mayor. * Mayor’s Office, 3d Sept., 1832. From the Pennsylvania Whig. Andrew Jackson !—No man acquainted with this tombstone of his former self, could support him for the Presidency, if lie were intimate with him for three dnys in succession. The poor old man, is simpering in the lost stage of dotage !—True, he is sometimes energetic, hut it is the energy of an obstinate, crabbed old woman, who smokes her pipo, takes her glass, and then turns all her serrants out of doors, because they do not break the china, and obey her blind behests. It would be very amu sing, or very humiliating, for our hog Jacksonmen to sec the Hero in petticoats!—“the greatest and best," how art thou! cries Amos Kendall. To him succeeds Judge Anderson, an overgrown old ico man of the Treasury—who, in a silvery voice whis pers—“greatest and best, how nre you this morn ing!”—Then, the Judge squats himself on the gos sip stool—and adulates till 1 P. M.—Then enters a lackey with a card from Martin Van Daren—who will ride with the President at half past 1.—After that. Succeeds dinner, with a crew of sycophants, who nil ciiant “greatest and best!”—To that sue! ceeds a glass—a pipe—and the day ends with the lullaby adulation of—Madam Eaton, and her friends!—“Sweet slumbers, attend you," “great, est and best,” whispers the soft voice of Mrs. Eat Aurora draws the curtain, and the voice of a flatterer hails “greatest and hest / ! ’ " Such is tho imbecility and dotage of Andrew Jackson— Amused with Toys! Betrayed by Women! Fj.atterko by Men!—and CAJOLtb by Sycophants !— To amend all this—the People have resolved to Veto Andrew Jackson! wrncrat nooi, oi i>ew York, has given in his adhesion to the opposition; and like a true pa triot, now goes against Jackson, and for the Coun try! On every side, patriots by thousands, flock to our standard. The day is ours! We could not desire to increase faster! We. increase too fast! —We arc really afraid of an inundation, unii that we, little things as we are, shall he buried in the flood!—-Gentlemen don't come over so fast, if you please come by tens of thousands only—hut when you come by twenties \oh absolutely take our breath away!—-General Root brings over 20,000 votes with him!—Huzza for General Root! Pennsylvania Whig. The Albany Evening Journal of Tuosdav, says —"We have never known the political horizon of this state, so clear and bright as it is in view ef the approaching election. The cause of the people is onward. We are cheered by every day's observa tion. Our information from every quarter of the state, is of the most gratifying character. The spirit which was roused in 1824, is again abroad in the state. The people are determined to shake off the yoke of the Albany Money-Changers.” From Missouri we learn with great satisfaction, that it is ascertained that (Jen. William II. Ashley has lre.en re-elected to Congress by n lurgo majority. [Nat. Ini. TIio distress throughout this community (says the Louisville Juurttal) is such as has newer before been witnessed. The whole of it is attributed to the Hank Veto. The western merchants are una ble to make good their notes, given to the whole snle dealers in the eastern cities;. and hence the East and West will suffer slike, and general disas trr must ensue unless the re-election of General Jackson is defeated. It is stated, in a letter fo tho editor of the Charleston Evening Post, that in a conversation held by the writer with General Jackson, tho latter said, that in case South Carolina should resist the Tariff laws and nullify, “he did not think of nc'ing against the State, but he would withdraw the Uni ted States troops from Charleston, and that would leave tho city so exposed to insurrection, that the inhabitants would then know how to value the pro. lection of the General Government.” CrrsTTNAStM.—According to the census of June, 1830, there were at that time living in the United Stales, of persons more than 100 years of age— White Males 260 White Females 386 Mala slaves 748 Female slaves 676 Total 2079 The census includes of deaf and dumb persons, 5,363, of whieh 743 were black".

From the Norfolk Iftrohl. ® Brc **nuscd nt tho flippancy with which tlic New \ ork Courier <St Enquirer is charged bjr it* quondam admirers with having been bought up by the United States B.mk; while tho very persona who make the churge have for the last three years been busily ungaged in defend mg General Jack, son against the charge of rewarding editors nut of tlic public treasury or services rendered himself. . bother tho editor of the Now York paper has been influenced in his political courre by favors receiv. cd from tlic bank, which, if ho had not been the conductor of a popular journal, would have been withheld from him, is not for us to say; we have seen no evidence to establish such a fact; ho has given his reasons for the chungc he has made in tho political course of his paper, and they aro such reasons as it appear to us might have influenced men of the most irreproachable character to have adopted precisely the same determination, whether they had borrowed money from tho Hank or not. NV e shall not, certainly, undertake the otfico of o. pologist for Mr. Webb (the editor) wiih whom wc occasionally In.vo had soino sparring; so much, how. ever, is due in justice to ary man in Eke circum. Manors. But how is i* in tho other case? That Gen. Jackson did reward those editors who wc?re most conspicuous in aiding'his election, by confer, ring upon them lucrative offices as soon as he found them at his disposal, is matter of history. It is notorious, too, that some of these editors, pending the contest, were supported by distinguished parti, zann of Gen. Jackson—paid for their services,— yea, hirer/, to tight for the good cause. All this however is deemed to he fair, and just, and honor able, by the very men who are denouncing tho Bank (a private institution) lor employing lawyers and editors to defend it against tho calumny and malice of its sworn enemies, although tho fact that it has employed editors so to defend it, is unsustained by the record—and who nre charging Mr. Webb With being bribed by the Bank, because he borrowed its money, and prefers the renewal of its churlcr to that ol general Jackson’R Administration! As we have just raid, we have nothing to do with Mr. Webb’s vindication, (we dare say it is safe in the liands of the people,) but we appeal to every candid Jackson man to say if this is fair play.” The remarks of the lltrold arc just. They are most obsireperous in denouncing the Courior A Enquirer, who have not dared to attempt any de fence of the system of rewarding partizan Editors, adopted by Gen. Jackson, and »vho bv their silence have plainly confessed that system to he indefensi. blc. Of this numLcr, the Enquirer of this place is most conspicuous. That papor which railed at Mr. Clay for transferring the puLlicnticn of the ln\VH from halt a dozen abusive Jackson prints, and professed to derm the net of eo startling a na ture ur to compromise the purity and freedom of the Press itself, hap seen nothing in the bestowal of office on fifty-nine of his Editors by Uen. Jack son, to rouse its alarm, or elicit its reprehension! Disapprove it did, hut with scandalous disingdnu. ousness, it sufTered no evidence of its discontent to escape its rtrite tana prvr lips, or to interrupt tho full slroam of its fulsome eulogy and flattery! 1 he mole hill of Mr. Clay’s offending' against the liberty and integrity of the Press, f.lled the venera ble Editor with dismal apprehensions of tho con sequences to public freedom, while the mountain of Jackson’s offences of tho same character, has extorted no mark of disapprobation—(except the simple declaration that the Editor did not approve the system of rewarding Editors.) This is rerite tana peur is itThis is independence? This is plain and fuir dealing? Ixst it he called vhnt it is, unworthy and interested truckling to power; the sacrifice of truth and principle to Mammon; the salne calculating disingonuotisncss which magnified the faults of Henry Clay, because he was ttnpopu. lar, and shrinks from exposing the more exaggera ted enormities of Jackson, because fie is popular, and because by doing so, the Editor would lose his interest at Court, which ministers equally to his purse and his vanity! \Y here is the man who will dispute tho conclusion? This same Editor, who knows so well how to be charitnhle towards tlioso whom it is his interest to represent as immaculate, and to he silent as tho toinb where he cannot venture to approve—is in the van of those who fling base imputations upon the Editors of the Inquirer and Courier Enqui rer. He could see or would acknowledge, no mo. tive to tamper with the Press in Gen. Jackson’s be stowal of office on fifty-nino of its conductors, but his acute perception snufTs corruption in the fact, thnt an Editor has been found independent enough to prefer his principles to Gen. Jackson, and ho. nest enough to declare it to the world! Upon the slender foundation that the Editors of the Courier and the Pennsylvania Inquirer borrowed money of the Ilank, and deem its continuance of njoro im portance to the country, than Juckson's election, he, who lias thrown a broad mantle over all the outrages of Jocksonism, has erected charges against their integrity! NKW YORK—MIL VAN BUREN. Thu Telegraph of Monday, publishes the an nexed calm and dispassionate, and at the same time, encouraging letter from New York. Most truly is Mr. Van Buren’s reputation characterized, as merely that of an adroit partizan leader, and ah. solntcly unsiistained by any monument of patriot, ism or of a Stateman’.n abilities. An elegant wri. ter in the Boston Patriot, forcibly delineates the *‘p°lit>cai grimalkin” as Clinton called him—a man whoso stealthy step in politics, and the very cast of whoso cyo, suggests the comparison of a cut stealing cruam. Mr. Van Buren possesses talents undoubtedly, but tho tnnf ensemble of his character presents nothing especially worthy of admiration, or of respect, and least of nil of that high confi. dencc which his present attitude to the country challenges. Nor is any especial admiration, respect or confidence, entertained in or for him. Strange ly as it niHy sound in connexion with the admis. sion that ho will rcceivo the vote of Virginia for Vice President, wo still allcdge, anil know we al. ledge truly, that he is held in very slight citimn tioti in this Commonwealth, lie will he voted for merely for convenience sake, and without the slightest npprnacli to enthusiasm, lie floats f»lto. gethcr by tho assistance of Jackson, and he out of the way, como the time when it may, Mr. Van Buren will as naturally and necessarily sink, as tho stone cast into the waters. Extract of a letter from nnr. of the mo.it intrlli fir.nt citizens rf Netr York, to the Editor. “The defeat of Gen. Jackson, so for ns the vote of New York is concerned, may now he re garded as settled. He will not have the vote of this SStatc. Van Buren never hail nny popularity, beyond tho ranks of tho Regency, and he never can have any. His only force is, ns the head of a political association of office holders, intont on power and spoils. His success has ever Rriscn from tho readiness of himself anil followers to for sake any minority and join any majority, and in the divisions of th|a Stale, anil their various and alternate success, he has generally managed his evojntions of position so as to avoid tho fellow, ship o( tho vanquished. Tho character of hi** corps can be judged from their tactics; it is the same here as at Washington. His whole force, you w ill therefore perceive, was enlisted for Jack son in 1^*1}?, and not a man bus he added since. Jackson** majority in 1*28, of the 276,000 cleeto. ral votes polled, wan only .r>,3.r»0; and Van Hurcii liad not half the votes, as ho was elected by a mi. nority, three candidate* being in the . The two minorities are now quite united; and without any diminution of Jackson votes, are sufficient, of themselves, to carry the State. “Abroad, it would naturally ho supposed, that ' ''n Horen’s nomination for Vice Prosidont must strengthen the Jackson vote; hut tlio previous re. marks will show such not to b« the fact. Hi* lorce is mere purty force; his only hold is as a par tisan leader; and lie lias no reputation or woi lit as a statesman or patriot. Ilis character is perfect. !v understood, and perfectly appreciated. “Besides all this, it should be borne in mind, that much of the Jackson vote of 1828 came from tho Clintonians, who arc now generally alienated, and have left his party. They reluctantly supporter! Van Boren for Governor in I828; they have been persecuted liy him ever since. Ilis re. cent nomination lias confirmed tho separation and opposition of u11 who have not been secured by ap propriate allurements. The Clintonians are, there, tore, generally, now against Jackson and Van Hu ron. .Moreover, it is not to he denied that Jack, son lias lost strength in every other \Voy, and gain, ed but little, if any, in any. Instances can bo found in every town and neighborhood, of men who were his supporters, and n:o now his opponents. Instance* of the opposite kind nro rare indeed, und, lalcrly, do not occur ut all; while the former oases grow more and more frequent every “Jack*oni8in was always stronger in this Slato than Van Riironism; they are now identified, and the former reduced to the latter. The roar on why tho Jackson party has not been put down before, was not the want of votes against them; but the divison and dissentions of the Clay and Anti-Ma sonic partime between whom tho Jackson ticket slipped in. l'hnt difficulty no longer exists; they are now united throughout the State, und run the same tickets. “ I he ele-ctoral vole of this State will go against Jackson, from tho best information I can gel, by at least 1.1,000. Ilis strong hold was in tho counties °n flic Hudson. The majorities in them have been growing }cr* every yeur, und the change of the Courier an>' Enquirer will ieduce them materially lower. That wonderful party, the Anti.Masonic, holds an undisputed uscenduncy over all western New ork. So far, it has come out of every olcction stronger, not only where it was weak, hut stronger also where it was strongest. They have their favor, ites. Granger and Stephens, now in the field, with fairer prospects than ever; and there is every rea son to believe tlmy will rally with u confident spirit and increased exertion. 4|1 know not why it i« 50, but (hero seems to ex ist, in nil classes, a general expectation that Gran gcr will be elected. Y«>u know the effect of such a sentiment. Up to this hour, it is totally uncer tain who will he the Regency candidate for Gover nor. Rumor says that Marcy fears no spoils can be reaped this time, and declines to run. Rumor says, too, that several others have fie* n asked, and declined; and that the place, or rather position of candidate for them, is a mendicant at the door of every practicable personage in their ranks. “It is an old adage with us, that you cannot tell who will lie Governor until tfie election is over. I know the uncertainty of political calculations— the caprice of popular lVding—and the ready cre dence of every mind to what it wishes to buliove, hut, abating all this, if there he any reliance on past experience, or any presago in present confi dence, then is tho electoral vote of New Vork certain (o be against Jackson, Van Durcn, and the Regency!” JACKSON CANDOR! After all the hurras and Te Dennis for their vie. tory in Kentucky, it appears that tho Jaoksoiiians acknowledge a substantia! defeat there. They do not acknowledge it publicly, indeed, but what is quite as satisfactory, they do privately. We ask attention to the following from the Lexington Re porter of Aug. 29: “T lie clamor of victory, tho Jackson presses rais ed. when the election of tiicr gubernatorial candidate was ascertained, has settled down into a sub rasa acknowledgement of defeat. Since ilie election, a private circular has been addressed, to all the leading men of the party throughout the state, in which they say they have been defeated-, and call upon the persons addressed, to assemble at llarrodslmrgh, to form a convention, “/or effect abroad." One of these circulars, has been shewn to a friend of ours, by the person to whom it was sent, and in addition to the acknowledgement of defeat, it states, “that the vote between Hacklier and Hreath. i't i* no test, of the strength of Parties." This is the truth. The loaders ol'thc parly, are fully sensi ble that, they cannot carry the slate in favor of their candidate, at the November' election, and all they hope for, is to render Ilie result of the late election serviceable to their party in other states.” We have no intelligence from IVIissouri, la ter than the 21st tilt., at which time the returns w ere not complete. The Lexington Reporter says, that “reports of a more recent date, state that the Anti-Ronton ticket has succeeded, arid that there will ho a handsome majority against him in the Legislature.” The complexion of the returns us far as heard from, renders tills improbable. INDIANA. 1 he Jackson Press, with jin wonted modesty, claiineu a triumph at the late elections in Indiana. The boot seems to be on the other foot. INDIANA ELECTION. The election in Indiana has resulted in a victory to the National Republicans. Tho last received Wabash Courier gives returns from all the counties but four.

First, then, as to the principles of tho National Re publican party, these liuvc been succinctly and nbly summed up in the address sent forth to tho people of Now York, by a Convention lately held at Utica. “These principles aro broad and comprehensive; they are framed upon great and interesting truths.

They were Republicans und National Republicans, After tho war of our Revolution was ended, and our independence achieved, the government was re.organized, and tho People of tho whole United States, fur the express- purpose, ns they declared, “of forming a more perfect union, establishing justice, ensuring domestic tranquility, providing for the common defence, promoting the general welfare, ami securing the blessings of liberty to themselves and their posterity," ordained and esta blished that glorious Constitution, under which ” ~ iM/tv imv, umi »;y ur; .mi i»i w lili ll mir HUYanCC iihmiI iii prosperity and happiness is without n pa rallel in the history of man, The confederacy which existed before the formation <»f the present Count ilulion, was ioutid too feeble a bond of union, and tho country required, what the hearts of tho People, then fresh from the revolutionary contest, demanded, a more perfect union. Now. wo oppose that construction of the Constitiition, which makes the government a mere confederacy of imlcpcii' dent States, and not a bond to unite the people of tho whole country; and thus reduces us in effect, to the condition which wo were hofore the found ation of the constitution. We believe this instru ment gives power to Congress to promote, bv direct legislation, tho domestic industry of the country, and to provide for internal improvements. We be lieve it is the right and duty of Con gross to rogit late the currency of the counfrv, and as far as practicable, make it uniform, sound and whole some. We held the entire independence of the Ju diciary, and that :is decisions on all questions, ari sing under the constitution and laws, are binding not only upon individuals, hut Stales, and all the different branches of the Covermnci.t. We hold that the President is hound to execute c.vcry treaty, and enforce every law of Congress, where his act ion is required to its enforcement; and that aflcr the Supreme Court has pronounced .such n law constitutional, his refusal or omission to enforce it, is a just cause fur impeachment. We believe all laws should be made in that spirit of conciliation and compromise, which gave birth to the const it u. tion itself; that the interest of a majority of the people should he consulted in the formation of laws, and that the feelings and even prejudices of tho majority should not he wholly disregarded; hut the doctrine of our party is, that when laws arcdu. ly enacted, tiikv ark sitrkmk, ami not voluntarily submitted to, must he forcibly executed, as well against individuals* as associations and States. We have hitherto, until recently, regariled this doctrine ns a fundamental principle of onr Repub lican institutions, and wo regret iliat there should he at the present time, a necessity, as wo believe there is, for its formal promulgation. 1'or the purpose of carrying out info practical operation, these principles, the National Republi can party bavc nominated Ifenry Clay, of Ken tucky, and John Sergeant, of Pennsylvania, to the highest offices in the gift of the people." Our limits will not permit us to dwell upon the character of these distinguished men. Air. Clay was horn in this State, and has been the artificer of his own fortunes; with his whole political course we are all familiar. John Sergeant is i favorite H.on .n^ 1‘cnnsylvnnia, is eminent for his talents, lor his public sorvtees, and is truly illustrious from his private virtues; his name must “challenge uni versal respect.’* '* o Dcuevc the United Mates Hank to tie “a great and l>encficial institution,” which “by fueili. luting exchanges between different p.%rts of the Union, und maintaining a sound, ample, and healthy slate ot the currency, may ho said to sup. ply the body politic, economically viewed, w ith a continual stream of life blood, without which it must invariably languish and sink into exhaustion. We believe this Hank essential to all the interests of the merchant, the agriculturalist, the manufac. turer and thn mechanic, and absolutely necessary to the prosperity of our western brethren. The President of the United rotates, has by a sr.rniol of hi* pro blighted all this. Tim message accompany. • ing this act, contains doctrines novel, erroneous] and monstrous. We are compelled, from the na. ture ot our meeting, to forbear saying more upon this topic. 1 here seemed to he, prior to the last election, n perfect reliance upon Ocncrul Jackson's “good faith”—and how has it been persevered?—l*v eon* cert ing immediately upon accession, means by which he might be re-elected, and yet in bis cele brated correspondence, he insisted that the Presi dent should serve but one term. He complained that the patronage of the government bad been abused—*t bat the elections bad not been free. Yet bn lias corrupted the sources of all political intelligence, by bestowing lucrative offices on nu merous editors of newspapers, as a reward for the service rendered by them in that capacity—measur ing the value of the reward by the extent of the prost notion. He has corrupted the sources of legislation, by conferring on various members of Congress, offices ot greater emolument und of higher dignity than that of Representatives, I hereby buying their votes on the flmir of Congress, and their influence, always too great, with their constituents. And this loo, not. withstanding be bad asserted previously to bis own election, that such a course of po icy must neces sarily engender, if it did not spring from corrtip Ho has denounced tho doctrine of Nullification in South Carolina, while with a consistency pecu liar to himself, be seriously sustains those who carry the doctrine into practice in (Georgia, \yhere then is bis “goad faith?” Resolved, That ws approve of the nomination of Henry Clay of Kentucky, and John Sergeant of Pennsylvania—and tbit we accept the electoral ticket, recommended by the Staunton Convention, and will nse all honorable and moral means in our power to secure its success.
