ample not only nf Gen. Jackson, but of .Mr. V an

Walter F. Leake, ol North Ciirnlina, (a piditicnl
friend,) and what was Ins reply ? Did he give n cat
o^orical ans-ver to those q lesiion* ! No. Ik* le
frrred Mr. Leake to his letters nf 1S33 G. in which
lie had avowed the opmintj that C« ngros has the
right to abolish shivery in the District ol Culuinlda,
and declared il at that, as well as the other opitih ns
expressed in time letters, hi I been strengthened Gy
subsequent experience and i» fit cion, ! When (i n.
Harrison was applied in by Messrs. Chambers and
Jkiskirk of Louisville, (Ky.) what was his reply ? —
lie referred them to Ins ( heviot and Vincennes
speeches, in w Inch he had take the strongest ground
against the Abolitionists, denouncing them a-* a set
of deluded or wicked (aunties and their schemes as
•'weak, presumptuous and one ns'iiuiional,** and in
w huh he dec la»ed l ha/ not only had 1 'mint cm* and il:.
Legislatures of l he nor sl.ivehohiing SHi s n right
to touch the shivery qin s n n in any -hape, hut that
even the discussion id that qu'^ln-n, in the nmt

But let us go one step farther. It may lie true
that Mr. Van Boren has answered ill tile iuh-rtogi
tories addiessed lo him. Hut v*»i ill* re are certain
points, as Mr. CiitiMiden leimuked. upon wlmh he
has nut yet been •ni»,itogated. and hi re/ mice to
which we demand to know, ol his friends, wriit ate
bis op.nions. Mr. Van Boren** op. orient* have not
annoyed him with q n-s ions upon tip s'* su tjecs, a-*
(Jen. (1 airis mi’s opponents hive deemed it nut in
delicate lo do, although they d.il nut s -k lor infor

Gen. Harrison hatl answered every q i-’.stion sms
