Tennessee Sentinel. Negotiating the Twelve Million Loan. A statement went the rounds ot the newspapers, saying that Mr" Ewing's son re ceived a very large sum for negotiating the twelve million loan. Secretary Ewing only remained in office long enough, it seems, to compass a half million of the loan. On this his son received $416 66 for negotiating it. JVegotiating, in this case, means simply re ceiving the money on the terms proposed in the law. This was Mr Ewing's. duty but, by using his son's name as negotiator, Mr Ewing got a per centage which, on the whole twelve million, would have amounted to ten thousand dollars. This was a beginning of feathering the nest. If the Bank and its loans had gone. into operation, the political negotiators would have fobbed at least a" mil lion. Negotiating and applying the Treasury notes to the purpose of the Government, cost much more trouble to Mr Woodbury' than negotiating a loan would have done; yet we never heard that Mr Woodbury, or his son, got a per centage on the job. Globe. w T T 4 FOR THE NORTH CiBOunx- Mr. Editor: This communication I pro pose to head The Whiff ro.itlon Defined To attack the fundamental principles oi tne Constitution, is denning me present r.- of the Whig party. ...... Q r.Vt A reduction oi tne wecumc ys Veto, so as (trr hv a iuruiei iiuiiwiiuu , er, uy ni,K . wi . as st a xnro rmpf I IfMlf :t: lt mi i - I u sduiw . - . . ' that shall be expressed by the immediate rep resentatives of the people anu me cwi, "with no other control than mat wnicu iu "dispensablo to avert hasty or unconstitution "al legislation." What i-s the meaning of all this? To take away tho Vtsto power from the President oi the United States; a right "inestimable to free men, formidable to tyrants only, 'r except in cer tain cases, where it is indispensable to "avert hasty or unconstitutional legislation." My countrymen, "there are none so blind as those who will not see." Unfortunately for tir happy country, the Whigs have majorities in both branches of our National Legislature. How did they use power? They abused it. Look at the proceedings of the extra session, aud you will find that -your immediate repre sentatives were gagged, and free discussion cut off. "What was their course upon the Fis cal Corporation. Bill? It was hurried through both Houses with indecent haste. Are you prepared to say with John Tyler, that it was unconstitutional? The Democratic portion of you will reply in the affirmative. But who are to be the judges as it regards "hasty or un constitutional legislation?" The Whigs them selves, of course; they expect to have the game in their own hands, if so, black will certainly become while, aud vice versa if it suits their purposes. "By the adoption of a single term for the " incumbent of the Presidential office." The Whigs have such an exuberance of the "talent and decency" among them, that it is necessary- to get one out of the way as soon as possible'to make rocm for another. The Constitution of the United States prescribes no particular time as to the duration of this office; in 17S8 Gen. Washington was elected the first President, re-elected in 1792, having served two terms, or eight years, and declined, thereby establishing the precedent which has governed all his successors; Thomas Jeffer son served from 1S01 to 1809; James Madi son from 1S09 to 1317; James Monroe from 1817 to 1825; Andrew Jackson from 1S29 to 1S37. Thus we have the examples of those great and good men, George Washington, the father and savior of his country -Thomas Jefferson, the author ( the Declaration of In dependence, and the apostle of Democracy James Madison, one of the fathers of ihe Co u-stitution-James Munroe, a soldier of the Revolution -and Andrew Jackson, the hero of Emuckfau, Talladega, and New Orleans. But modern Whiggery must strike a new track. Before the views of one President can suffi ciently develope themselves, he must give way to another, and thus the country is kept in a continual slate, of excitement. No one set tled policy is adopted and adhered to. "By a separation of the purse from the sword "-aud with that view to place the appointment sof the Head of the Treasury in Congress." - This" is' ah old song, "the purse from the sword," and it really appears, since the W7higs have found out that they possess all the talent for music too, they have set it to a new tune With variations.

Out correspondent, "A Pedee Farmer," will have seen, that a State Democratic Convention has been recommended by our friends of Franklin coun ty that Raleigh has been designati d as the place, and the 10th of January the time, for the members of the Republican party of North Carolina to meet and deliberate on the great questions of national policy which agitate the country, and also to nomi nate a suitable candidate tor the Executive office. For ourselves, while we would gladly have seen the Convention assemble in this place, wc cheerfully ac quiesce in the wishes of those who prefer Raleigh; believing it the duty ot all Republicans to merge minor considerations for the, sake of harmony and nnity f action. That it i3 essential to hold a Con vention, fev, we suppose, will deny; if therefore, a greater number can be assembled at the Seat of Gov ernment than elsewhere, thereby reflecting moreful ly the views and wishes of the Democrat ic party of the State, -we forego, our own wishes in favor of Fayetteville, aad say, let the Democracy of the Old North S'ata assemble at Raleigh, on the 10,h Jan uary next, and proclaim to their fellow citizens, in language which cannot be misundet stood, their de termination to maintain those principles, on which, the welfare and perpetuity of our institutions de pend. Death, of Mr. l'orsylli. W"e announce with regret, the deith of the Hon. John Forsyth. He died in Washington atter a se vere but short illness.

Why this difference? Let the South pause and answer the question. -Before the Election and after this Election. Before tilts eteciionj almost every Wh g banner bore lhe inscription 'Tippecanoe and Tyler too," it was the burthen of evefy seng; the rallying cry was "Tip and Ty.' There was no remissness among the opposition of that day. The democracy never accused them of it; if any one 'did, great injustice was done, for every art, device, and manoeuvre was resorted to, that ingenuity could invent, to deceive and mislead the people. Every one that we knew of that party, were, through the whole tempestuous period, as indefatigable as human nature will admit, goingabout seeking whom he might devour ma king use of flattery, terror, temptation, and allure ments in every shape in which human wit could dress it up in public and private. They succeeded by these means in elect in J their candidates, "Tippe canoe and Tyler loo." Providence, in its all wise decrees, snatched their chief away, and now, since the Vice President has succeeded to the chair of state, and interposes a pow er he possesses under the Constitution, and arrests the progress of a great evil, "there are none so poor as to do hini reverence." He is denounced by those who were once his warmest and mostardtOt frlcnds, as a "traitor," 'perfidious wretch," &c. Tin ir ex ertions weie all to no purpose, the people have grown more and more weary of them every day, until now, -the land mourns under them. - , Resumption by the BanksKeforui, Reform is our Watchword 1 ! The Banks, one and nil, suspi nded specie pay ments in May 1337, which was during Mr VanBu rcn'a administration. Th. ir excuse to lhe prople for not resuming, was, that Mr Van Buren's admin istration was carrj'ing on a constant war against them, and therefore they cou'd not resume. Well! Mr Van Buren, under this hoe and cry against him, was turned out of power on the 3d ol March last, and the friends of the dear Banks, the Whigs, were put in his place, and have possessed, for the last 8 months, the whole power of lhe Government both the Executive and Legislative branches power to control the whole politics? of the country to make the Banks respect the laws, and practice common honesty in their dealings. Now, how stands the case? Why, so far from the Whigs carrying on a war against them, they have actually encouraged and sanctioned 1 lit. ir dis honest conduct, by extending at the lute extra ses sion ol Congress, the charters of all the Bank sin the District of Columbia, whilst these Banks ic ere and still are in a state of suspension of open rebellion against the latcs of the country, and Che obligations of common honesty. Here I hen we have the Banks, stripped of all excuse; no war against them their friends in power a time of profound peace the for eign exchanges in cur favor and still they continue to live in bold -contempt of public opinion and public morality. It is a shame! a crying shame!! The Banking system in this country, as managed by the pipe-layers, has brought deep disgrace upon our na tional character. The Federal Whis who have the control of it, have, for the last ten years, made it en tirely subservient to paity purposes by loans and accommodations to members of Congress, patty leaders, and Editors, and the practice of pipe-lcying, Or the purchase of votes at the I ctions, and bribing bullies to prevent Democrats from voting. Besides the enormous tax levied upon the people b the loss es on a spurious currency besides the injury to trade and national character, by the loss of all con fidence iq our moneyed institutions it is daily un dermining public honor and morality, prostrating ev ery high, pure, and noble standard of justice and honesty; and w ill, if not checked by the public vir tue eft.ie Democratic patty, end in the mill of our republican insi itutions, by corrupting the who'e mass of public sentiment, w hich alone sustains them. Show us one Federal press that has found fault with the Banks for all this, and we will show you a 'black swan!!" No! no! Tho Banks patronize them, and they would not be so unjraleful as to censure the Banks. They denounce bitter rrnroaches if ihere lappens to be a default for $50 of a democratic offi cer, whilst tln-ir columns are silent as t the every day enormous robberies, perjuries, and villainies corn- mi ! tt d by Whig officers in Banks. The people demand and wiil have reform! And we ask, will the pipe-laying, federal presses in this State go for it? Never! SwAUTwour. The Whig editors, who could find no words too vile to apply to this individual when they, might operate against Mr Van .Buren, have, now found that he is at Washington, ' looking very well " and ex citing the warm sympathies of his friends," (i. e. the Whigs,) and that "there is no rea son to believe any considerable deficit," and that whatever it may be it will be paid.

The Cause! The Cause!! The Banks suspended in May, 1837, and held on to the public money, in depositc with them, which compelled Mr Van Buren to call the Extra Session of Sept. 1837; to devise moans to carry on the Gov ernment without Banks The President recommen ded at this session, the plan of the Independent or Sub-Treasury, to separate the Government from the Banks the latte? to keep its own money, instead of putting it into lhe Banks to be used and squandered. 1 he ruin brought on the country bj the suspen sion, enabled the Whigs to raise the panic howl, that Martin Van Buren's Sub-Treasury was the cause of all the public distress; this turned the elec tions of 1838 airainst Mr Van Huron?. .m;n;.rn. tion. The "sober second thought" of lhe people, turned the elections back again in 1839, when the Demo crats carried the elections by overwhelming majori ties in 1 ennessce, Ohio, &c. thus approving of the S ub -Tr casn ry . The triumph of the Democrats in the summer and fall eltctions of 1839, set the Banks again to war upon Mr Van Buren's administration; and the Bank of the United States, in October of that ful', again suspended specie payment, which it had resumed in the latter part of 183S. This suspension of the U. S. Bank in 1839 was followed by that of all the Banks in 1839 and 1840 The consequence of this second grand susDension. was a sea of bankruptcy, ruin and distress spread over the whole co-mtry in 1839 and 1840. The Whigs met every where in conventions, raised the second grand panic howl, that Mr Van Barren's ad ministration was the most corrupt and tvrannicalon earth, and had brought all this ruin on the people they set up Gen. Harrison as their candidate for Pre sident, promised better times reform and retrench ment in every thing, and concealed their own opin ions and principles as a party. The people, galled by ihe seventy of the Bank pressure, andcarried away by the storm of passion and excitement raised by Whig panic orators, deserted their Democratic standard and went over to the enemy, and elected Harrison in 1840. In 1S4I, the Whigs having exhausted their panic 1 TT a j- . . scneiues, me unnea states Bank having died, the people, under the sober light af reason and reOection silently went to the polls, and by overwhelming ma jorities pot down the Whigs every where. Now mark the usafuf conclusions to be deduced from these facts! 1st. The Banks were always used by the Whis as instruments to control the elections. " 2J. When ever the people were It-t alone to the influence of the "sober second thought, the elettions went in favdr of the Democrats. 3d. The elections of 1839 and 1S41, show that the paopleare' in favor of the Independent Treasury," or the generation of the Government from Banks An . Extraordinary Case. 'v. If ur readers recollect, about two months ago, an account was published in this pper, of the hanging of two men (known to be robbers) by an crtanized body' of men. They marched to the jiil took out the prisoners, and hanged them" buried them, and quit tly dispersed to their homes. One hundred and twelve of these men w ere arrested brought before a magistrate plead guilty, and were acquitted by the jury without leaving the box, on the ground that the laws were not a sufficient.protection to the citi zens; and further, that .they were nut a mob, hav ing organised themselves for the purpose of shewing their aversion to a mob.

'4 The Raleigh Reiii-ter asks why the Democrat passed by the " immoital ighth of January, and and propose holding their Convention on the (en(A ? He seems to be much gratified, too, at the idea that it was because ' their last Convention, the one which nominated General Saunders, met on the Slh, and tho result of the campaign, was so disastrous to their hopes, that they arc afraid to try the same hum bug again." It becomes the Raleigh Register, to sneer at the Democrats lor reverencing " the Slh of January." His John Bull sympathies should not carry him so lar. His hatred towards Gen. Jack son is no doubt caused us much by the thrashing he gav: the British on the"g'oriou3 8th," as by his veto of the U. S. Bank. In ctsc of a war with England, which she is trying to urge upon us, we hope he will not be found by the side of his elder brother tory, of the National Intelligencer, icriling against the country that gf're Aim his bread. If he had consulte d his Almanac he would hare found good and sufficient reasons for pass:ng ly the 8th ; but he thought it too good an oppoitunity of tasting a slur on the memory the 8th, under cov ei of a taunt at the democrats. Population of Charleston. A table is publish d in some of tl:e papers, wh'ch sets down the population of Charleston at 29,6-21. If we are not great Ij mistaken, a table of thJ popu lation of Charleston was published in the papers of that city some lime sinc, giving it a population of 41,000. Which is correct? That was too badalmost. The Chaileston Mercury s iys: " We underhand that the Whigs of Savannah had imported from N. York $700 worth nf fire works to celebrate Daw son's election as Governor, and lhat they cfler d them to the Democrats at a great bargain after the election." Used, for convenience. The Madisonian in reply to an article of the Te tersburg Intelligencer, a full blooded Whig print, says.-. " When the so-called " Conservatives " resolved to defeat Mr Van Buren and his Sub Treasury, it was agreed, that (he then Admin istration was diseased and corrupted, and that a dose of calomel ought to be administered. Our friend always regarded the Whigs as the calomel, that should purge and restore the Ad ministration to health, when purified Repub licanism would again resume its sway." J low do you like that, friend Hale? The Madi sonian tells you to -your face, he is not of your kid ney, and that lhe Conservatives, of i horn he is the organ, only used the Whig party as a stepping stone a convenience, to aid them to power. "if vou could si.c'.he abundance of tho ncccssarirV comforts and luxuries of 1 fe which unprotected agri- cultural industry has delivered from a tire of non- existence during the present tcason, you could not " wonder that the gentlemen who intend to live high on discount, d.tid nds and exchange premium, should make another desperate struggle to jrasp what will ba left, aft r pajing us the cost of delivery from the womb of our common mother, commis sions to necessary intermediate commercial agents- and 20 per cent tariff tax on ind spensable Imports for consumption.

"Blac't B ird," for so the poet is called, h is written sufficient to maltc a volume of about 100 pages he is desirous of hav ing his poetry published, fr he is well pleased to bo praised or commended for his talents, and he, as is quite natural, appears to think that the volume wou'd en ible him to establish a reputation, which Would at length enable him to stand o a fooling with some of the poets of our t:mes.

Dear Sib: The time is app oachlng when a decision must be made wiicther wo who support and defend lhe institutions bequeathed us by our an cestors will retain our 1 berties in our own hands, or make ourselves the degraded sons of wiser fath ers, by voluntarily surrendering them to the merci ful custody of those w ho scarcely touch the burdens of our Government with the tips of their lingers. In order, that all the friends of equal rights throughout our State may be able to act in concert, on well defined and long cherished principles, it is thought advisable by-many of our good citizens that a convention of the people be held in Fayetteville, some time during the coining winter, for the purpose of uniting on some suitable person to fill the Ex ecutive chair of North Carolina, for the next term, i whose devotion to Republican principle will assure us that he will watch faithfully over the wel are of the entire democracy of numbers, regardless of the menacing influence of exclusively privileged incor porated wealth. a The Federal leaders in this section are again try ing to tighten the whig traces on a sufficie.it num ber of their deluded supportcis to enable them to hold on to their ill gotten power; and alas, those who love an empty name a mess of whiggery a little local power and the flattery of the" little great," better than their birth right correct princi ples, or their country's good, will still continue to be their victim, but the republican branch of the whig party take no pleasure in their movements, lhe honest voters of the Country will not be further trifled with, a majority of those who have hereto fore supported whig aspirants, done so because they honestly believed they would thereby advocate the cause of official responsibility, honesty, industry, and economy, bit the "wayfaring man" cannot help seeing now that he was ministering to the cravings of aft ambition which has proved to be the LTl7 8Wnan'-lhe aU,hors of measures to draw the last drops of sweat from our brows- TrAfli rr oil L: -r-" posis oi profit, honor and case to LC eD8.!on favorites-strengthen the Arm ftf Poif AnitM. j . . wh-i ,",M ana "'Hue coffers of aristocracy, While thev h. .1.- 1 J ' snlf,,7 , ,wuw nonest republican whig neLT i ?'t' e,'Sbted' and TOUch iniu eompo nent nn rt r.C u J. , r- - w ucnocracy ot . numbers, the sad n ... . , , Hmg on the panic strick- Treat I" f b ."oning Treasury office,, to become the. , me money market tr?e purpose better than any we could give. From the Journal of Commerce. The Cause. A great effort is making by certain Clay " papers, to show lhat the " untoward " results ot the recent elections is attributable to the course of President Tyler, iu vetoing the I3ai& bills. A few facts will throw light upon the subject. It should be borne in mind that the first Ve to was issued on the 16th of August, aud the second on the 9th of September. In the early part of August, before the first Veto was issued, and still longer before a knowledge of its being issued, had reached those distant States, elections were held in In diana, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama. It will not be pretended that these elections were, or could be influenced by the Vetoes, which had as yet had no existence, so far as appeared, the Bankites were iu the iuii nae ot successful experiment, with every prospect of soon realizing the object of their aspirations. Under these circumstances the above mentioned elections were held. in Indiana, the elections were only for mem bers oi the legislature. The result was, that the Whig majority of 17 in the Senate was reduced to 7; while in the House the Whi" majority of 55 (out of 100 members) was changed to an Opposition majority of 1 1. AH that saved the Senate was the fact that one half of the members held over, being elected r(Tr Harrison's majority in-tha State last .November, was 13,698. In Kentucky, likewise, tho election mu confined to the choice of Senators and Repre sentatives. This State gave Harrison, last. JNovember, a majority of 24,873. Of course,, such a majority was not likely to be neutral ized m nine months. Accordingly the Whig carried both Houses by large majorities. In .Tennessee, the vote for Polk, (as Gov ernor) last August was 746 greater than Van Buren's vote last November, while the vote for Jones (Whig) was 8,012 less than Harris SOBS. In Alabama, all the counties excepf five,, show, as the result of the gubernatorial election m August, a falling off in the Whig rote, compared with Harrison's last November, ot ? Ao,d m lhe0PPOtHm vote, a falling r i comPared with Van Buren's. In Illinois, the CommwHAnni Ai: it August showed a falling off of 11,349 in the " u.8 vote, iz,u w the Opposition vote.
