The Petersburg Constellation says. “ we have not re

Southampton can be very well spared; but Wui. B. Good

Great majority for the Whig, over the two
Jackson candidates !. 3
A letter in the Alexandria Gazette, states, 44 that it is
believed that the plan of running two Jackson candidates
was agreed upon, 111 order to make it uppear that Rail
could not command u majority over the Jackson vote._
The result has Idown the trick.” So far from this plan
having been agreed upon, there was no other attempt
made to produce an agreement than to bring out one
candidate, instead of two. If Fairfax had had fair
play, she would have returned a Republican instead
of a Whig. But she bus been King (jurened by
our own friends. The facts, as We understand, are.
mat Air. Gangster was originally brought out against
Col. Ball, anil he would have been elected. But Sung
Rlcr wns the High Sheriff of the county, nt the time
he was announced, and the usual term of Sheriffalty
would expire atthe March Court, when it was expected
that Mr. Thomas Moss, who was the next oldest Justice
ot the Peace, would qualify to the comminsion already re
ceived, as his successor—but, as the 67trkshipol* the coun
ty had been vacated by the death of the late incumbent,
Air. Moss wa.+ u candidate for the Clerkship, and there
fore deferred qualifying to the commission, as Sheriff, un
til the appointment of Clerk was made—about which
there has been a difficulty in consequence of the number
of candidates for it, and the unyielding temper of their
respective friends. At the March court a fruitless effort
wns made to elect a cleik; and after many ballots, was de
ferred until the April Term. This state of things kept
tlic canvass for the House of Delegates in confusion and
suspense on the part of the Republicans. After a pro
tracted delay, Sangster withdrew his name from the
can visa, being, according to the terms of the law, obliged to
Continue to act ns Sheriff until a successor takes place—or
if not obliged, at leant allowed —and in either case, a more
improper delay in his withdrawal was practised, imme
diately upon his withdrawal, whilst an effort was mak
ing to get Col. Burke, a very popular man, to agree to
become the candidate, a young Republican named
/-in , was announced, without ceremony or authority.
Presuming that I-ane would be obstinate, Mr. Burke
refused to make a division in our ranks—and in this
state of affairs, out conns Mr. Chichester, another Re
publican! Songster or Burke would either have certain
ly been elected—-and perhaps Clllchseter, single-handed
with linli, would have succeeded. Hut I.me and Chi
chester made a division that left no ground to hope—
paf»Ivied onr friends, ns we understand, and defeated
the election of a Republican. 'Phis is, of course, very
provoking—but such has been the fortune of war!
CAROLINK COUNTY.
We have heard some unpleasant rumors of some de
sign on the part of the Whigs to defeat the will of the
People of that county—But it must and will fail! It
would not he the first tune, that the Sheriff of the county
has attempted to throw out the Republican Samuels
nor is it the first time that the Sheriff and his advisers
have been disappointed—and compelled to recede from
their position.— Wc call upon our Republican friends in
that county to collect the facts, and communicate them
to us, that we may at once lay them before the People,
1-et them be assured, that if justice bo on their sidr, they
shall not want an advocate to stand by them, nor nil or
gan to bring their indignant remonstrances before the
world.-—But we forbear, for the present.-—We pause
for a reply from our brethren ofCaroline,
The Whig party have done more to shake the Right of
Instruction, and the purity of the Right of Suffrage (the
two corner-stones of our Repub lie,) than any party
which has ever appeared in the Old Dominion.
Tur. Crirp.oKris.—The Miiledfeville Recorder of

The last blow i» to be struck to-day! and that blow
is to be struck in old Hanover—the birth-place of Patrick
Henry—and the residence of the late Spencer Roane,_
Will it not he struck in honor of tlio Republicans?
I be prospects before us are most cheering. In our
last, wo slated the actual majority at that time, ut Id in
the House ol Delegate*—We estimated the chances of
the two parties, in the counties yet to be heatd from, at 3*2
und 32—thus giving the Republicans a majority of about
Id in the House, alter making up too the stxtcr* majority
which the Whigs had over u» in the last legislature.—
Wo h ive seen no reason siftce to change the culrulalion.
dime our last, more of the Whig counties have
Ih’cii heard trum. than of the Republican counties,
and ot course the W hig column of actual returns
comes nearer to the Republican column—Imt our es
timate is still urn-hanged The returns agree «»/•
tncrtcttiltj with that estimate, though not in detail.
--Wo have gained two counties, which we did not
place m the Republican column—and we have not gain
e»l two, ns we had calculated. Wo have gained .tin cl tit,
by u majority of tW, ami Monroe, by a majority of 70—and
we have not gained Patrick or 7 y/cr—in the former, the
Whig candidate has won the race hy the skin of his
teeth—by the casting vote of the Sheriff—.and in Tyler,
we have been beaten, by what mnjoiity we know not,
though probably u very close one—as the Republican
candidate for Congress (Morgan) has beaten the Whig
(Allen) by at least 150 majority.—And mark! While",
during the last week, we -rained 4 counties from the
W lugs, (viz Hath, Prince Ldward, Amelia, and Monroe,)
they have won only one from us,(viz: Southampton )
.We are firmly persuuded that \vu shall carry the House
of Delegates by a majority of from 14 to 20.—And the
question is—Will Hanover swell that majority, by re
gaining her position in the Republican Ranks?—Or will
she abide with the Whigs, the Federalists, the Nullilicrs,
ayd the llank-men ? W ill she this day furnish a new to
pic of rejoicing to Mr. Clay and his allivs—or will she
disenthrall herself from the unfortunate vote of the last
spring? Ret uot Mr. Clay cant any longer ntiout "Hun

BALTIMORE COXVFjYTIO.Y.
, " V. notice further movements in Georgia and North
Carolina.—“ A respectable number of the friends" of
the Administration met at Athens, in Georgia," for the
purpose of nominating Delegates to represent the West
ern Judicial Circuit in the contemplated Raltiniore
Convention. 'They nominated Col. Stanford, of the
county of Habersham ; Col. Lyman, of Clark; and Mr.
W. I>. Martin, of Jackson, as Delegates—and they re
commended Messrs. Van Ruren und Wm. C. Rives, as
the candidates for the offices of President and Vice Presi
dent —Meetings had also been called for Jackson and Ma
dison counties. lor the put puse of assisting in the appoint
iiient ot Delegates.—The "Athens Banner" appeals to
the Citizens of Georgiu—and tells them, that as " a
large majority of them belong to the great Republi
can I.unity, they cannot but be sensible, that their very
existence us a political body, (and consequently tin;
prevalence of those principles which they lio’ld to
be inseparably connected with the continuance of
their happiness and prosperity as a people,) depends
upon unity of action with their brethren in other
States; and that this can be secured only through
the agency of Conventions emanating directly from
themselves. We hope, Ihcrcfoic, that all the counties in
Jins Circuit will call meetings immediately, for the pur
pose of acting with us, and confirming our proceedings in
a matter so viuifty important."
The Raleigh Standard of tho ?4tl>, publishes the pro
ceedings of meetings of the Republicans of Northampton
and Lincoln counties, and of the Democratic district
meeting in Nash county, and promises the proceedings
ol Caswell county. All these uppoinled delegates to at
tend the Convention. The meeting in Northampton ap
pointed “the Hon. Jesse A. Bynum, the Hon. Daniel
Turner, Gen. Henry Blount, the llcv. Henry Fitts, and
Joseph J. Maclin, Lsq. to repicucnl this electoral district
in the Baltimore Convention.” The "Standard" adds,
that " in despite ot the efforts of the Whig-Nullifiers to
dcicut and break up the Democratic party in North Ca
rolina, hy concentrating their strength on a candidate
from our ranks, the Republicans uro everywhere, with
but few exceptions, animated with a determination to
preserve harmony and concord among themselves, which
must give ultimate success to their purly."
1 lie " Columbus (Mississippi) Democrat" urges the
necessity ol such a Convention, and traces the sources
of the opposition which it encounters, on the part of the
Whigs :—

power to restore flics Government to its pristine purity.
“ W’oll, what would lie find lo bo the upshot of all the inflamma

and their furious denunciations of tho I'.esideut? Why that they

many ol thorn huvo met with the indignant rebuke of u inue„-i,UUsod

“ I bus totally beaten, and foiled hi most of their attempts lo em

JUDGE WHITE.
Tho time ia almost nt hand, when the Republican Par
ty must make a frank appeal to Judge White and his
friends in lennessec.—There are two remarkuhle cir
cumstances in the presses devoted to him—One is, that
they are attempting to make his support in other Stale*
appear much greater than it is—And the other is, that
they are wooing the Opposition.—If they go on sir
months longer as they have done since the adjournment
of Congress, the friends of the Judge will throw them
selves into the arms of the Whigs'—and the friends of
the Administration can no longer consider him one of
themselves. We shall take his presses to task, in due
season.— We shall be able to satisfy Judge White, him
self’ that in this State the only party winch is pressing
him, is the Whigs.

i ii iu nn opportunity ot forwarding to you by “ Ex
press, and for tho very moderate ifuin of five dollars, all
the information that you could desire with reference to
the Rhode Island election; but. as the “ fine fellow” who
made mo the offer was a good Whig, I did not feel myself
justified in imposing upon him the onerous and unprofit
able duty of advising you, by “Express," of the defeat
and ilingrarr. of Rhode Island. I say disgrace, Iseeause
we have been beaten and put to rout, when it is as noto
rious as the existence of the *tm, that we have, in this
State, a clear majority of from five to eight hundred votes.
And yet I am riot disappointed with the issue, as you must
be satisfied by the whole tenor of my correspondence_
I>o you ask why it is, that ill success has attended us ?
My reply is simple and at h ind. The Whig party of
Rhode Island, like the great Whig party of the IJ. S . has
neither head nor tail—it is destitute of organization and
discipline ; in one word, it has neither management nor
design ! I do not intend to offer any disrespect, hut f
mean what I say ; and if the party cannot be united, far
better were it for the people, if it were totally disbended.
— Here, with everything at our command, and with
j the ability to succeed, we have suffered shame and dis
grace, because many of our party stopped by the ro.td
sole to quarrel about Masonry, anti-Masonry, anti
slavery, itnti brandy, gin anil cold water, Orthodoxy,
heterodoxy, Fanny Wright, Beelzebub, and Rail-roads
Thus ive quarrelled and split nud divided;—the well-or
ganized forces of the Administration, marched up in the
mean time and carried all before them. We have thus
lost our Senator, and the Htatc besides, and thus, with
tears in my eyes and wormwood in my gizzard, do f

FROM T/IF SOUTH IFF.ST I
The Whigs uro attempting to keep up their spirits, by j
counting as Whigs the \Vhitc men of the South-West,
(or Little Tennessee, as they are pleased to csll it, hy wav
ol sinking that region, we presume, into an appanage of j
Tennessee.)—The “Whig" lately gave “good news trom
Little Tennessee"—claiming the whole “tier of power- 1
ful counties from Hutetourtto the Tennessee line—Mont
gomery, Floyd. Giles, Grayson, Russell, Scott. Wash
ington, Tazewell. Wythe, Smyth, and Lee" —as disposed 1
logo with tin- Whigs for Judge White, and against the (
, candidate of the Republican Turly—if the Judge should j
turn out not to lie their candidate.—The Lynchburg
' irginiun follows suit, anil will scarcely believe that Rus'
i sell has returned any hut a While man—lor, says he,
I “Russell is a South W’e tern county—and we cannot be
| lievi1 that there ts a single county in that region, where
! \ an Durenism is so popular, or in which the friends of
t Jtidj^e While would have failed to hoist his 11 ig."
We have taken some little pains to ascertain the Toll
tics ol that South-Western region. We have already
fiublishcd two letters upon the subject—and now take tin*
iberty ol giving another, from one ol' tin1 most prominent,
intelligent and firm Statu Rights pohticiuus of the South
West :
“Allhmigh I have disapproved of several acts of Gen.
Jackson s Administration, yet I am a decided friend to it
—and myopini m is made up to support Mr. Van Huron
for the next Tresidency, should he he taken up by the
Republican party. 1 Ins also may Ik.* relied upon its the
fixed determination of every gentleman in this quarter
ol Virginia, who knows any thing about the politics of
the country, and is a real Incud u! the present Adminis
tration.
*' We have some politicians here, us elsewhere, who
light under fulse colours—and we have a few, who have
been taken hy the White hail—but the first will bo unable
to lead any of the people with them—They urc well
known, and cun now deceive no one here. 'The second
class, by being treated a ally, will nearly all return to
the Republican ranks again. Indeed, they are now fast
returning.
“ The contest for the House of Delegates in Wash
ington county, will be between Cupt John Clark, her
late Delegate and i. apt. John Gibson. They are both
plain, worthy gentlemen and of the some politics; both
Iriends of the present Administration, and both in favor
ol a nomination by the parly, of a candidate lor the next
1 residency—and both decidedly opposed to the attempt
ol Judge White and lits Tennessee Iriends to divide the
party.
“ Mr. Jessee of Russell county, who has been elected
to tlie House ol Delegates, is a firm and decided friend
ol Gen. Jacksons Administration, and so is Capt. Mc
Mullen ol Iscott—and both, as 1 um informed, are in
Juror of u nomination, so that the party may not be divided.
“ 1 have not seen Col. Saunders of Wythe for some
months but I know him to be a man of good sense
and sound views, and that he has always been a friend
ol the measures ol the present Administration, lie
may have erpresrd a preftrenre for Judge White; hut, in
my opinion, there is no danger of Col. Saunders leaving
Ills party And 1 know that the people of Wythe are
decidedly republican.
“ 1 am not personally acquainted with Dr. Ingles of
Montgomery; but lt*aru that lie is, anil lias always been
a Republican of the old stamp, and will be for support
ing that party. His constituents are as decidedly Jnck
son as Wythe or Washington.
“ Mr. 1 ulton and Mr. Hopkins arc both friends of the
present Administration—mid u month or two u<ro 1
thought Mr. Fulton would be re-elected. When Ins re
turned to llio district—not having time, as lie believed,
to visit the counties generally, lie prepared a Circular
und had it pretty extensively distributed, in which he
expressed a preference for Judge White, hut said very
little on the subject; yet this little, l ain sure, has done
liini serious injury.* Three counties, to wit: Russell,
WytliC| and’ Scott, have voted, and have given Hopkins
a majority ol votes. The present opinion is, that
Hopkins will be elected by a Urge, majority; and I cun
ascribe the change in public opinion, (flu- There is cer
tainly a very.great change lately,) to no other cause chan
Mr. Fulton s preference for Judge White.
“ You need have no fears of the Jackson men here
going over to the Whigs, although some of them just
n<>w, have expressed themselves in fuvor of Judge
White. They will go for the candidate of the party, as
soon as that candidate is fixed on, and the truth is, be
fore three months pass around, they will have their eyes
so opened about Judge White, that they would notbo in
favor of hiinnnv how.
I oni not so sure that Judge White will be able to
carry 1 onnessoe with him. The people tliere have not
yol discovered that he is a deserter from the ranks of his
party. But they will see it. Some very strong men in
that State ha.ve come out openly and boldly against bis
pretensions. 1 am well acquainted with the people of
that State—and my opinion is, that, although they have
great respect for the Judge; and would be highly flattered
in having another President from their Stale—yet, that
they will throw him aside with scorn, when tliev discov
er, as they must certainly do, that he is the candidate of
Air. Calhoun and Ins party.”

II bio and n He mo trot—*.l days!
According to appointment, on Monday morning the Kith
of the present month the horses weed brought upon the
course, and a large concourse of people followed to wit
ness the scone. As the track seemed to bo somewhat
slippery, from n light shower in the morning, it was
thought it would be dangerous riding. About ten o’clock,
however, the clouds disappeared, the sun came out,
and a more beautiful course I scarcely ever saw.—
Great sport was expected.—At the sound of the drum
the horses were brought upon the course to prepare
fora start, and to my great astonish merit, the Whigs
brought out a very fine-looking horse, that J at once re
e.ogmsed as an old horse that formerly belonged to the
Kenublicans, (a great family for line horses.) nud who
had freouently run him over this conrse with great suc
cess and credit to himself It I am not mistaken, lie
was owned atone time by old Culpeper; but I am cer
tain if I had soon him on stmnge ground, (he is so com
pletely shodded.) I nevei should have known him in the
j world. 11in new masters most have taken great pains
with him to have made him shed so early in the Spring;
and they had him in inch fine plight, that l noticed him
particularly, nt public places during the training, and bets
were running as high as ten to one in his favor. During
the training, I freouently heard one other horse spoken
of for this race—I think he is known ns a sort of n pie
bald; Imt when his master name l.» I w.k at this old horse,
though he thought he was rather Ih shy, he abandoned
all idea of running, until a more convenient season In
fact, it is scarcely known to whom Piebald belongs.
The riders being up, at the word of eommand otl* went
the Whig and the Democrat nt full sjieed As the Whig
went oft' with n good rider and Ins tail hoisted, nothing
was eX|M cted. but that he would distance his competi
tor the first day; but, he had scarcely gone twenty
steps when his tail began to fall, and that large foot
of bis became very tiresome; and now, I shall al
ways believe, that bis big foot was the cause of bis
old master's parting with him; for, previous to that
discovery, be was considered one among the fi cat
horses in their stable; but to the great astonishment
of his new master, lie was nearly distanced in the
first round. The second day terminated very much as
the first, except that the Democrat rather held in « lit
tle, which enabled the old horse to route up in about a
good gun-shot, very much distressed, which caused his
ne w masters to employ a fresh supply of rubber* for the
third and last day. I think I never saw such robbing and
scouring in all my life as the old fellow got for the next
day At about ten o'olock thujasl day, out they c um
iu complete trim, and I think thr Democrat looked bet lei
than I ever saw lain; for l»c was not pressed the first two
days, and did not expect to l>c the last. The Whig looked
drooping and very much stiffened up, just as I have
seen horses before now. after running very hard over tho
Richmond Course. At the word of command, off they
went again—Democrat apparently nt his east*—while
the lug seemed to be under tin* t:tsii all duv, and bo
lore sun-down. I think lie was almost beat to death. I
cannot say to whom lie belongs, now the race is over; but
certain I am, that hi* next masters will never have the
face to run him over the Rappahannock course ngaiu.

I present to you my hearty congraltilu'ious upon the
triumph of republicanism in Buckingham and Campbell,
and hope to be able to add oilier counties in this part of
the State before the mouth of elections has terminated. 1
feel pei lectly confident that the irhtlf-icoshinjf deception
will fail in tlie contemplated result, if we do our duty_
But its inischievous effects have been sadly felt in our
State, in tlie delusion of many staunch Republicans, who,
whilst they were aiding aristocracy and the bank, conceiv
ed themselves supporting the sound old Republican doc- 1
trine, winch has fur its basis the greatest possible amount
01 civil liberty at the least possible expense. Time (the
wisest thing in the world) will ultimately correct this de- j
lusion; but, it is necessary that we labour assiduously to
prevent the injury which may take place, before the heal
ing correctives ot time will have an opportunity to act. I
1 know of no cause of complaint against tlie principles of
Judge White, nor do l think there will beany, unless he !
permits hiinscll to be seduced from his high, honorable,
nnd patriotic course,by tlie cunning blandishments of the |
ll'igj,or the temptations which the 1’rcnidcncy holds out
to every ingenu iusas well as ambitious mind within the
sphere of its influence. Yet it would be in the last de
gree idiotic, to suffer ourselves to be divided, when divi
sion is defeat. It would seem strunge. too, that we should
permit ourselves to stickle about minor differences of
opinion, when our opponents have many in their ranks
whose opinions differ as widely as the antipodes, whose
notions ot ."state nnd Federal rights are ns opposin' as day
is from m<rjil,and who nre held together alone by tlie
charms which an ardent love of power, place, and pension
H will readily be ndinilted by every one, tliut
those who contend for rights which belong to every free
man, ought, at least, to be us earnest us those who are
stimulated by a love ot power. We must then support
him lor the Presidency, whocuq most effectually conceit
Irnte tlie Republican vote; and whether that man be found
to he ' ilnrrn, White, Harbour, or any one else, we
mni/ not set Ins claims aside with impunity. We should
constantly recollect the that division is defeat ;
and that it would appear over-scrup«lou* to refuse to
Confide in a candidate, for whose fidelity a lu^r nui„|M.r
of our party are willing to enter surety, than foraiiv „iJlor
nominee. Whatever we may think of Jndge White oi

where intrigue and corruption may do for us what was
nearly accomplished in lire case of Burr and Jefferson; and
what was done, against the obvious will of the People, in
the cast' of Adams and Jackson. Nor do I think that the
known will of the people is more likely to produce a
happy effect in the approaching election, than in those
that have passed, especially if the It'igs continue in
power. The temper manifested in the Virginia Legisla

and this will tnosL certainly be done, by union of effort
nnd design; for, 1 arn sure we have the power, if wo
choose to exercise it.—But, you must not relax your ex
ertions ; for, it is necessary* that this deception be put
down, and that we be prepared to meet others that will
certainly be brought out. I think it now most probable,
that Judge White will be dismissed uflor the elections in
this and some other States are over. The little attempts
at trick and deception, of which tin* Wigs are guilty,
may he laughed ut, when beaten; but remember, that no
enemy is to be treated lightly, until he is conquered._
And 1 see a large deception is in due course of prepara
tion, for domestic consumption. The IJ. S. Rank has
extended her accommodations 11 millions in 5 months!
The desperate speculator, or the soft-skulled gentry, who
will be trapped by this accommodation, will, 1 think,
raise another hue and cry. When the Bank puts down
her screws, which she will most probably do, with the
express view of exciting the sympathy of the nation in !
behalf of those suffering patriots, i. c. the endorser of the
desperate speculator and softs!, ailed gentleman aforesaid,

may be exercised by the few, over the many, or the

attain power over a community, State or Nation, against

Corporations are arCjiriat perron*, created by law, to
subserve nlono (lie purposes of their creation, and they
are either aggrtoule or tale. Of tho latter arc Deans,
Bishops, Ac. in K.ngland. It is, however, of the former
kind we have to speak,—corporations composed of many
natural persons. These natural pern -ns become parts dr
parcels of a mere artificial person, or body politic, for
which, the law provides n name, and o seal, and by which
tins body acts a* os* being.
It is not therefore possible, that a corporation ng.

ed, mav be of nil colors, ages and sexes, and be citizens

A 901 noration aggregate, authorized to hold land, may
take and enjoy, daring the term of its existence, the
highest estate therein, known to onr laws, a fee aim*
pie; or, it mav take a less estate, fta a term of years,
hut this would not constitute in the artificial person a

ui» v Much convt*vtinet* would be void.
I think tin- case- would not l-e altered, if the stock was
declared rial estate, and made n> descend to the heir._
The stock, or scrip, the only thing of which the holder
could be “possessed," could not. with propriety, be said
lobe “land:" For, an injury to it would not be trespass,
nor could the right to scrip or stock be tried ill Ejectment,
or by a Urit uj Uigkt, the ordinary forms of action to
determine the possession and right of freehold estates in
land. 1 iu- holder ot such scrip, declared real estate,
cou.d not therefore bo “possessed" of “an estate of free
hold in land."
A laud warrant is peiso.nal estate until an entry, or lo
cation. It is then made rent estate, and will descend to
the In-ir; but, il the entry be withdrawn or vacated, it
tiea.!i becomes personal estate. Hut no one ever thought
ot voting on a land warrant, until u!\er a survey of the
entry, and actual possession. The cilir.cn* of the an
cient districts ot West Augusta and Kentucky, und the
counties of f mcustle, Yuhoganin, and many others,
were permitted by law to vole on their surveys, nf\er
being in possession of the lands twelve months.
II test* were good freeholds, and the tenants might
have maintained and defended their possessions, al
though they had no grunts. They were, nevertheless,
tenants of the fit.
11 is quite obvious, that the possession of a thing, de
clared real estate by the Legislature, does not constitute
un estate- ot free hold in land, ’ unless it he just such a
tiling, as would have constituted such an estate, at tin
adoption ot the* Constitution. Slaves, horses, mules,
and asses may be declared ruil istatr; yettlu-y could not,
w ith propriet y, be said to be land; nor could the holder be
considered as “possessed" of “ un estate of freehold in
land: ’ he ce.uld not, therefore, vote.
1 understand, that the advocates of this new scheme
of mill rage have calculated, that upon a dissolution of one
ot these corporations, the lands and houses will give a
dividend of at least on each share,—that although
the shares (ire now personal estate by law,—upon such
dissolution iind division, tin.* land will rtttrl taf or ir
main with them as real estate; and that they have a right
aair to vote as reversioners err t einnindrr-men. This is
founded upon an entire misapprehension of what a re
version or remainder is, in law. 1 have before slated
that tin* entire estate in the laud, held by the corpora
tion, is vested in it, and that no share, interest, rerersiun
or remainder of such estate or title, is now vested in
any of the stockholders, in their individual character,
llow is it possible for any of them to say, that limy are
entitled to land out of tho proceeds of a corporation
winch is bound liy law to wind up its concerns i»acri.-xm
tune, by a sale, probably, of every thing, and a division
in money? Even if the position had any foundation in
law, the* expectation of a dividend in laud is «piiU* too
remote. Each Stockholder might just as well claim, in
Ins own right, the bonds and note* of the Corporation,
as the lands. Hut tho words of the Constitution admit
ot no doubt: “ Every such citizen being entitled to a re
version or vested remainder iu fee, expectant on an estate
Ibr life, or lives in land. It would be sufficient here to
cail the attention of the Law yer to the fact, that there is
not any one characteristic of a rerersiun, or remainder in
land, to be found connected with the nature of the stock :
but it may not be immoper for the general render to give
Judge Dlackstono's definition of a reversion: “ The resi
due of an estate left iu the grantor, to commence in pos
session, after the determination of some particular estate
granted outby him." Thus, if A shall grant an estate,
iii' laud, to M and C, his wife, for the life of the survivor
of them, the rcrersitmof the fee still exists iu A; and af
ter the deaths ot H and C, the “possession shall fall" to
A or his heirs. But, if A shall grant un estate in land
u />ml C, his wife, for the life ol the survivor, with
remaindci j,e lo ]) ),ere |) will he entitled to a vested
n-maim.er m r...t ,.x,,cctruit on the lives of J! and C;
and A has nothing. , $ (il is said) tlle fr^miple of al

either deed or devise. 11 ut, both are equally transfer
“ “hie, when actually vested—being both estates in pret
“ send, though taking effect in futuro."
From the very clear and unequivocal terms of the Con
stitution, contingent remainders, and executory devises,
are entirely excluded, until the estates are “vested."
Neither Corporations aggregate, nor the members of

Whereas, a large majority of the freemen of the coun

friends of the prominent measures of the Administration
of our venerable Chief Magistrate, Andrew Jackson,
believing that a continuance of our Democratic Institu
tions depends upon the success of the measures as there
carried nut—upon the principle of a strict and limited
construction of the Constitution of the United States —
We view it as all iuipor'.ant for the welfare of our country,
us well as for ourselves, in the selection of a successor, to
elect one of firm llrp nidi cun principles, who stands
pledged to the nation to support those principles. To
effect this, and prevent the election going into the House
ol Representatives, ns in 1821—to secure anion and con
cert oj action, in the Republican party throughout the
nation; to be represented in the Baltimore Convention
for this purpose, to recommend suitable persons to the
People of (lie United States for President and l ire Pre
sident, under the present aspect of affairs, is highly ne
cessary and expedient,
1st. lies,deed, That, in a Government like ours, where
the whole power is in the hands of the people, who have
a right at any time to assonilde together (guaranteed to
them by the fundamental law of the laudato consult for
the common good—this right we hold to be one of inestima
ble value—in the exercise of which, we-arc at liborty to
express our opinions upon all subjects fvechj, and upon
none with more cheerfulness, than with rpgnrd to the U
8. Bank, us being inconsistent with the spirit and letter
of the Constitution of the United Stales, and dangerous
from experience, to the liberty of the. People; that wc np.

will be hailed in all future lime, as among the noblest acts
ol bis life, towards the preservation of our Republican
institutions.
«' Hrgalrrd, That time and experience have proved to
the satisfaction of unprejudiced minds, that the panic
and distress which pervaded the community during
tlie Session of Congress of IKH and HIM, were not
call cd by the removal of the deposits * from Hie United
States Bank, as alleged by the friends of the Hank and
its ally;*but by tho Hank s own action1, seizing on the
removal ns a pretext to o->nipc) a re-charter, which pre
text was seized on by politicians of the most discordant
materials, in order to degrade our patriotic Chief Ma
gistrate, alienate from him the nfteetion of the People,
aifd thus 11 destroy the policy piirstiod by him, in tlie elec
tion of a successor, wliieh p >liey ought to bo pursued to
perpetuate our Republican Institutions.
