Pursuing tbe former course, they iviU be entitled to tile appellation of public Irone fartnrs, as they ought to be: But if, on tiro other I band, they fail to respond to tin patriotic recom | n endaVuins of the Lieuti limit (iovernor ;—if, | thev permit sectional rivalries to prevent tile a doplion of ineasutes for tbe general welfare ; and, instead of concentrating llieir ample means upon a ! single great object, scatter them among various schemes,- all of comparative insignificance, and I some of which promise no positive benefit, tiny will earn tiro unenviable distinction of “ unprofita I Ide servants.” i It may, we are aware, be contended, that tiro 1 appropriation of tbe entire sumdrawn from tiro ge neral government to tiro Tennesson Rail Road I would be a pm tin! appropriation "I that fond ; ant | fu st sight, it does bear ibis appearance. But Gov. Robertson anticipates and answers this ob I jo : 1 ton mo.t conclusively,.by showing, first, lha j the completion of ibis Road will of itself ensure i '■Fund, in all time income, for the benefit of tb ’ I ... whole Stale, to hr appropriated to the rniiipletioi <>f similar work* in other section*-— and secondly that, whatever reduction of duties may he made so long as the Public Lands remain, they will con finnr to pour into the federal treasury millions ol dollars annually beyond tlie* wants of the porern i nu'nt, which must ho there idle and unproductive, j 0,1’hr misapplied by that government in unronstitu tional or mischievous expenditures, or divided, as tho existing surplus has been, among the several l States. Can tiny one doubt this ? If not, then, 1 *o all pi ohnhil ity, t he next Legis'ature will he cal | led on to appropriate a sum scarcely inferior in a inotint to that ol the year 1H;I7— and tlron, ntliei schemes ol improvement may come in torn slime of the public bounty.

Vet, it is hui an act of justice to that gentleman, as well an to tliosii wlm supported him, to show dint there was no foundation loi (lie charge. The following letter, written (as die date will show ) too late to have any influence on tho Presidential election, and therefore not to he regal Jed as an election* erring document, given to the public tor cflTect, will conclusively do this. We copy it from tho | Millcdgevillo Jmil n d : Nt.aii Lanc\sti.r, Ohio, dtli Nor. 1833. My Dear Sir—This is the fii*.t day of leisure dial I have had since I had the honor to receive your letter ol the *!0ili September, and I avail my self ol it, to answer the threw questions you pro posal to me, and which are in the following W old-, \ 17. : 1. 44 Can the f 'oiigrcss ol the C. S. consistently w ith the Constitution, abolish slavery either in tho States oi in the I>Mi ict of Columbia ? 'J. D » not good laitli and tiin peace and harmo ny n! the Cuioii, reqniie that the act for the coin promise of tho Teiiir, commonly know n as Air. Cl,i\\s loll, should In* carried out according to its spit it and intention f »T Is the principle proclaimed by tho domi nant party, that 41 the spuds belong to the vic tors” con isicnt with an honest and patriotic ad ! ministration of the office of Piesidunt of the United States.” 1 proceed to nintler these (jneslioiis in tlio or dei in which they air proposed. I. I do not think that ('on^resji cull abolish or in 1 anv nianner inteit'ero wilh slavery as it exists in the Slates, hut on the application ol the Slates, nor abolish slaver) in ilia District of ('ohimhia, without tin* consent ol the States of ViruiniN and M ;u \ I,uni, iiml lli«* people ol tlm District. The first m muI I lie, in my opinion, it palpable viola iinn of llii' <'•institution, and die latter a breach of IhiiIi toward* tlm States I have mi'iilioned, who would certainly never have made the cession, if they had supposed dial it would ever lie used for a purpose so different from that which was its ob |crt, and in injurious to them ns thu location of a li ee colored population, in thu midst ol a slave po pulation ol the same description. Nor do I be lieve that Coneress could deprive die people of the District of Columbia of their properly, with out their consent. It would be reviving the doc trine of tlie Tories of Great Britain, in relation to the power ol Parliament,over the Colonies, before die Revolutionary w ar, and in direct hostility to the principle advanced by Lord Chatham, that “ what was a man’s own was absolutely and exclusively his own, and could not he taken from him without his consent, given by liimsell, or Ins legal represen tatives.” 5>. Good faith and the peace and harmony of the Cnion, do in na opinion, require that the com promise of die Tariff, known as Mr. Clay’s bill, should be carried out according to its spirit anil intention. ,;l. I am decidedly of opinion, that the power of appointment to office, vested in the executive of the U. S. by the Constitution, should he used with a single rye to thu public advantage, and not le promote the interests of a parly. Indeed that tfaw President of the United States should belong to no parly. You are at liberty to usu this letter for any pur pose you may think proper. I am, mv dear sir, with great regard and cun— i i sideration, vour humble servant, ,i \V. H. HARRISON.
