In both instances it has been a source of power and a liieans of success. It is easier to offer a tiegative than a positive affirmation aslo the policy of the future Presi dent; He will certainly not be a King Log. He will be no puppet iu the hands of his sop portersj nor will he, knowingly, allow his friends to sway his better judgment. Hi will not blindly commit himself to a one-sided policy, nor rashly throw defiance in the face of all parties and governments who declare for the interests of civilization and humanity. It is only by a knowledge of his personal and political character that an opinion can beformtd of the policy the President elect is likely to pursue. By giving onr readers a description, borrowed from those whu have long known him, inferences may be drawn as to his probable conduct when the time comes for him to exei" cise the high powers with which he has been invested. Physically, he is a large, powerfully built man; indeed, neither physical y, morally, nor politically, is there anything little about biftii He is above six feet high, large-limbed, and of fair complexion, and, although past i-n t . , . " . . sixty, siiii snows mac lie was iu early days. what the other sex, (who mast be allowed to decide in such matters) call a. handsome man.

He is hale and vigorous, of regular and active habits, and unexceptionable moral conduct ) conscientiously religious, a Presbyte rian, with more indulgence for those of other creeds than is some:imes found in persons of that persuasion ; kind-hearted, generous, and charitable, as many instances reported by those who knew him will prove; distinguished for great prudence and sagacity in making his dc cisions, and for firmness in their execution when taken. He has forethought and cool self-possession, conservative iu opinion and policy, and proves the soundness of his judg ment by being favorable to the Conservative party in Englandi He has been heard to say mofe than once 'It is remarkable that the Conservative leaders and party in England have always been mote inclined to be friendly with the United States than the Whigs.' In this, by the way, lie is not singular, for we have heard a similar opinion expressed by other dis tinguished Americans. He has beeii from early life a successful law ycr in extensive practice, and most ably filled the highest posts in the Government, nest to that of President, having .been Secretary of State, Envoy to St. Petersburg,- &e. He nev er was married; an early and mutual attach ment is spoken of by his friends, whose object was, by one of whose terrible dispensations which certain, steadfast natures never can for get, snatched from him. Like another distin- rrtiichr? A irinripan Wjishintrtnn Trvliicr who faithful to the memory of r her whom lie .hits lost. Although the private lives of men in high stations are considered as belonging to the public domain, it would not, we think, be deli cate to allude more particularly to the circum stances attendant an this deep affliction in the outset of JVIr Buchanan's career. What we have said suffices to show that no cold insensi bility of character condemned him to celibacy In manner, Mr Buchanan is courteous, and in conversation mild and deliberate, with a smack of the old school His beating is calm and dignified, bis temper and language under com-1 I nlete control: although on occasions, when he Pen.ou.1 or official slight j was intended, he has shown that, although his i . t 1 1 . :...: , wisM parents were Irish, he can Vindicate the ClaJM of his family to a Scotch origin,-by acting tfp J to the motto, "iSemo me inpune lacessit' The uew President is designated by soma as tbe zealous leader of the Slaveoeiacy, and re ported to be the warin advocate of Slavey. - That this is correet in its full extent we must be permitted to doubt. Air Buchanan is not a native of a Slave State, bat n Pennsylvania who never owned a slave in his lifi' nor is he likely ever to da so. Nor do we thinfc that he Is an approver of Slavery although y iu dealing fDONALDSOX STREET VOLUM E N 0. 938; with a great evil already eixsting, he knows and feels the extreme difficulty that practically snr-' routids the question. .

Thosd who saw him most do not share in this opinion, and are, far from anticipating such violent measures as may be predicted frefm' the tenor of the Ostend manifesto. Bnt the flattering At tentions showered upon him in St. Petersburg, not only within the Imperial Palace, bnt by all the nobility, may have rendered ihim alive to the coldness he experienced from certain of our aristocracy.- He was on very friendly terms with many peisons of distinction here and it speaks in his favor that those who tcnew him best liked him most; but other.s, especially some with whom he came in contact in his oflt-' cial position, iegarded him as Washington Irving describes the old Dutch families of New York to have looked upon the Yankees, 'witb great respect and abhorrence." .. Americans have informed us that he lefi England, with feelings of the deepest respect and esteem for the highest personages of the realm, but had lost much of such feelings fo' those who compose our Government. Desiring as a man, all prosperity to our sovereign, he must naturally wish her a better ministry, while" as President, in the not improbable contingency" of the United States again retjniring England to abandon an island or give vp a consul, ho" would desire the continuances in office of these now at the head of affairs, who have distin guished themselves by doing such things with rt jaunty, unblushing grace that is inimitable; and have eaten enormous leeks, not only with gusto, but to the sound of their own trumpets. Mr address confirms our anticipations of iVis coti'-r servative policy, and assures us that he will use his power and great abilities to lead baek giant Republic to the paths marked out so im pressively by its founder.
