about it , that there has been since. Indeed,
if we mistake not, Adams the 1st, charged the
cost of his carriage and horses to the public !
All this - Ogle doubtless knew, and yet he
tells the people, that no such thing as a stable,
or any thing like it, was ever known until after
Wow let us examine the weighty affair of
Page 15, Ogle thus disclaims about the
purchase of French bedsteads by Mr Van
Buren, viz :
"I have before me, Mr Chairman, the
original bill, duly receipted, of C. H. and J.
F. White for sundry " French Bedsteads,"
"Marble-top Washstands," "dining room "
" commode, with statuary marble top," " Dres-

August 10, 1337, for the sum of $1,599 60
of the people's cash. These articles may be
denominated household furniture' in the
proper and true understanding of the terms.
But, sir, 1 protest against expending the mon
ey of my constituents for elegaut FRENCH
oak, and hickory, and cherry, and walnut
and maple, that admits of 'smoothest stain,'
stand neglected in the forests, for the gilt
rosewood, sandal, ebony, box, and mahogany
of France, and the far off 'isles of the sea ?
Shall the people's money be shipped 'across
the ocean by the people's chief servant to sup
almost perish for lack of bread? Shall that
'bread ' be withheld from the mouth of honest
labor at home, but lavished upon the subjects
of kings abroad? Why was Mr Van Buren
so anxious to possess an elegant FRENCH
BEDSTEAD? Does he desire to have the
trimmings of a 'CROWN BED'also?"
It is sufficient reply to this tirade, to state
the fact that these "French bedsteads," so
called, were made by "OUR OWN CUN
PHI A. Is Mr Ogle so ignorant as not to
know that "French bedsteads" are made by
our own cabinet makers throughout the Uuion?
We do not believe it. We do not believe
that he supposed these bedsteads were made
in b ranee, when he put this rigmarole togeth
But suppose he was ignorant enough to
think that they were called French, they were
actually made in France, how will he excuse
himself Cor justifying Mr Monroe in purchas
ing the same kind of furniture? Voucher 66
iu Mr Monroe's account for 181S contains
the following items, viz:
Aug. 4, To one mahogany sideboard $65
To one FRENCH Bedstead 45
Yet there was no "trumpery" in this! It
was all right to let our oak, hickory, cherry,
and maple grow in our forests, and our work
men starve, in 1818. but Mr Van Buren's
buying a "French bedstead," made in Phila
delphia, is monstrous!
Does he desire to have "the trimming of
a CROWN BED also?" sayslOgle. Why,
Charley,' you have already approved, not only
What "crown" can this be? We remember
to have beard of but one IRON CROWN,
and that was the crown of Charlemagne, Em
peror of Germany, which has been placed on
the heads of the Emnerors at their cor
onation, down to the present century. Na
poleon, we believe, brought bis crown
to aris. and, on one occasion, had it plac
ed on his head. Did Mr Monroe have it
brought to America with his French furniture,
and secretly kept in repair to be clapped on
his own head upon a convenient occasion?
Oh, Charlev Oele, Charley Oi?Ie, oh! How
could you turn traitor to ,the dear people!"
How could YOU approve of the iron crown
to be placed on the head of our Democratic
President? The traitor! He not only ap
proves ot the LKUWJN, but in bis speech,
page 31, actually recommends the 1H KOINE
also! Dost thou start Republican reader?
Ogle has gone over to the enemy. Read what
he says:
"It may with GREAT PROPRIETY be
alleged," says he, "that as we have the palace,
with its tabourets, and other splendid regalia,
palace grounds, palace gardens, grand levees,
State banquets, court ceremonials, court
costumes, stalls for the royal steeds and royal
revenues, we should not hesitate about a throne,
which, according to the definition of Napoleon
Bona arte, is six piue planks and a velvet
carpet ?"
You see, reader, what a traitor this man has
become. Already approving of "CROWNS"
and declaring that aTHKOJNJi" may be
introduced ltwith great propriety," what cau
we expect of him but that he will next insist
on the "aiaaem" and the "sceptre, and the
canopy, and a JvlXMlr to stt under tt!
1 here is another fact necessary to be re
membered here. The GILT FRENCH
CHAIRS introduced into the President's
House by Mr Monroe, aud approved by Mr
Ogle, had on their rich coverings the simili
tude of an IMPERIAL CROWN, surroun
ded by the regalia oj France! These Ogle
Democratic emblems remained there until Mr
Van Buren came into office, when he had
them stHppedoff, and others substituted, bear
ing our own glorious stars, aud other Repub
lican insigriia. But Ogle, who is well pleas
ed with Mr Monroe's FRENCH IMPE
RIAL CROWNS, is quite offended with Mr
traitor, no doubt !

useless, to attempt to put down aa institution

We intended to add a commentary on the
absolute villauy of this man Ogle. He knew
that Mr Monroe's extravagance in o :gioally
furnishing the house had been sanct.oned by
Congress; that Congress has put at the dis
position of every President fince, anpropria
tions to keep up the furniture in the same
style; that out of these appropriations, General
Jackson and Mr Van Buret have tot only
kept up the old furniture, but have r irnished
the spacious east room, for which l her Mr
Adams nor Mr Monroe purchased t single
article; that in expending the apprr ; iations,
Mr Van Buren or his agents have bu perform
ed a duty imposed ou him by Congress; that
Mr Van Buren never has asked for a dollar
for furniture, and that it was his duty to see
that the furniture of the people's hou:- , not the
"President's Palace," should be ke up in
the style th - ReptwnMivem of ti people
have, time and again, sanctioned and ap
proved. If Ogle wanted reform, if he had
iu tended any thing honest, any thing but an
electioneering humbug, he would have in
troduced a bill iuto the house directing all
these "tabby cats," fringes, tassels, plateaus,
gilt chairs, silver plate, gold spoons, gilt
clocks, lamps, Sic. &c. to be sold and re
placed by plain furniture, appropriate to the

In various stations each has been before
the public, for more than thirty years. Com
pare their professions with their acts, and
then the results of each comparison. If si ill
not satisfied, there are other broad facts that
cannot fail to bring conviction to the honest
ly inquiring mind. A better judgement of
the probable conduct of an administration in
this country is to be formed by looking at the
parties by whom its chief is brought forward
and by whom he will be supported, if ttey
succeed, than by a scrutiny into the political
opinious and political course of the person
who is proposed for that station.

parties by the combination of Anti-masonry
