So far as thc political pntronago and in flnenco of thc oflice are conecrned, the difiicultics by which I was surroundcd can ecnrcely bo appreciatcd. 'J'hc peculiar Mnte of thc DeKiocratic p.'rty, and thc ap prnachofa inost important Prcsidential elcclioti, wore among thc principa! difiicul tics. That I p.xcrlcd myself to bring n bout a cnrdial union in thc Dcinocratic nartv. nnd to brins tlio wholc strcutli of it inio thc contcst, in favor of Ir l'olk, nre I'acts too wcll known to bc disputed by any honest nnd disintcrcsted pcrson. Ai,d that my cflbrls wcrc not witbout somc ef fcct, ha?, 1 trust, becn sccn in thc rcsult cf thc two important clections i:i this c.ity, wliich look placc whik I was in ofiicc. 1 ii my sclcctions for nppoilmcnts and rc teutions of nfliccrs, 1 was dctcrmincd todo eqtial jiibtico, so faras might bc pr&ctica cable, to tlio difiercnt scclions alid inler esls in our party: and, consequenlly, to re gard nn disliiictions bctwecn Dcmocrats, boyond those ner.cssary fairly to carry out that dctcrmination. That I did, in good faitb, act upon this princijde, can bc provcd by an examination ol thc list uf persons lcft in ollicc by nip. Uut notwiihstanding all thN, it is truo that I was violcntly nssailed, and grossly misrprcsctited by meu professing to bc Dcmocrats, It is, liowcvcr, cqually true, that it was thc worlc, o;cliit,ivcly, of a fcc tion of our party, which is composed of mcn who but unwillingly concurrcH in tlie nomination of Mr l'olk for tlie Prcsidenry, nnd, at hcart actually dctircd bis defeat, Mcn who wcrc opposed to thc nnne.xatinti of Tcxas, thc gruat issue upon which ihe battle, last I'all, was foiight and woi.; and who arc, at this momcnt, plottinu an op positiou, In bc carried oti indircctly if not dircctly, against tho prosc:it adininislra tion.

In or- dcr to break thc forcc of that blow, ihoir lirst obicct was to causc thc thc dcfcut of Mr l'olk, and thcrcby to bring discrcdit upon the Convcntion, provided it could bc done witbout tlicir beiug cxposcd. liiit having failcd in that, it ncxt becamc thcir ohjec.t cithcr to ritle or to rnin the admin ibtration ol Mr I'olk: and if thcy do not miprnni! tn llinir cnticf!iptirti in (Ito riiPtnni thcn thcy will most surcly, in somc form, or unilcr somc prctcxt, attcmpt tbe latier.
