! m.**1* *«*ieple, the catastrophe may invari
I ajjiy be traced to the fatal slumber* of thoso
Mu whom had been confided the duty of
(ceding it* often smothered, but i;>extingui*h
■iblc fire*. And never yet were the In n fot
ten* of <b*polLnnt broken,'or the alow eon
*iunin:', huracsdly stream of corruption con
verted into a he.vMhv current, but by the a
roused energies and concentrated action of
Iree and iutrepid apiiits, who, in all great
emergencies, such as that w hich now exist*
iu our own country, true to t).cir principles
havo raided aloft tha standard of CouctW
tlocal Liberty nnd Public Virtue.
Our system of govern,nent, fellow-rftixens,
u the only form of a purely popular east, to
be found in tho annals of the world. Avoid
mg Iho curse of a “turbulent Democracy,’'
which so frequently arrested the regular ope
raUcma of government in the ancient re
ptinlics and their modern imitator*, con
vulsing them with the horrors of anarchy,
and deluging them with the vice* of un un
bridled licentiousnesf; it likewise secures to
the people that well rcgu.'ated liberty which
consist* in the secure enjoyment of all the
rights necessary to their welfare and happi
ness. Amongst those rights none is more
important, and poM^ould be more cuutiouv
y anti watchfully^gcrciscd, than the sclec
P^bllo bccausa it mainly de
pends on their wWdbm, intcgiity and pru
dence, whether tfee experiment of free go
vernment shall succeed or fail—whether the
capacity of the people to control the adminis
tration of their own aifiiirs is a grand and
glorious truth, or a baseless Ltopioii dream.
If, then, it be true, that the exercise of this
inestimable right be a matter of such deep
and abiding importance, it follows, as a no
cessary consequence, that it ia the solemn
duty of the |»cople to scrutinize rigidly the
prcteit*ion* of those w ho may bo c andidates
for their favor: and this duty becomes more
Imperative when the offices to be
in* Highest iU their gift—invested with pow
er and patronage, which, harmless wbciien
trusted to wise, skilful and pnident men, be
come odtoils engines of tvranny, oppression
and ruin, in the hands or weak, capricious
and despotic rulers.
Influenced by these views, and believing
that a crisis has arrived in our political hin
tory fraught with tlte most tremendous con
sequences, not ouly to the country and tp the '
present generation,but to all nations,through
out time—and believing, also, that thiserisis
has u.en accelerated, if not produced, by the
misconduct ot the administrators of the go
vernment during the last three years, a bor
v<wir feliow-c.l izefis, in various sec
tions of the Common wealth, have deputed i
tbe mciulicrs of this Convention, to assemble i
at this place, with a view of contributing ,
their exertions to the important work of cf- i
fleeting a change* of rulers. That duty we
have performed hy nominating Havav Cut
of Kentucky, as President, and Johv Sca
oEA7tT .IV,",*3rlT,nU’“ Vico President of
the United States. We have also fram.dkn i
Klector.tl Ticket for Iho State of Virginia, i
for tlie purpose of enabling those who concur i
with us m sentiment to act in concert, at the '
approaching election, with that energy which ,
our righteous cause is so well calculated to
umpire, and which no fear of discomfiture * I
can dampen or repress. Our motto is “ Truth, i
Ood and our Country.” Wc have no personal1
reveneo to gratif>r-no selfish ambition to1!
stimulate u*. t\ e bear oo our shield, and on
our Bag, the Patriot's device, and our hearts i
arc animated and cheered by the Patriot's
hope. In such a cause, even defeat is glori- ■
ous—far more glorious than to triumph with i
a majority w hose success is built upon the i
wounded honor of their country.
But our duty docs not shrp here. It is i

be deemed toe harsh to say, that when a law
is to-day prooounced unconstitutional by the
President j aad another, identical in princi
ple and similar in detail, is to-morrow pro
••ouiK-ed constitutional, such a contradictory
ccurso must proceed either from lamentable
ignorance or something worse. In relation
to the present incumbent, this ground may
l*e assumed without offence -even to those
who aincorely believe him to he an honest
<um»i because it is readily conceded, that
although he may wield the pen which gives
validity to one law and renders another a
nullity, he is impelled to this course by “ a
power bcbhid the throne, greater than the
throne itself”—a gigantic shadow, palpable
neither to >igbt nor touch, hut whose- baneful
indu.taco is fell in every corner of the land. I
Vi'hcn General Jackson was a candidate '
fc-r the Presidency hi 183^, hi opposition to
John Quincy Adams, he cmpbafieaJly declare
rd that nio individual ought to be tvrlccelected
to fill that offire—a •entunent that was echoed
sod re-echoed by hb friends from one ex
tremity of the Union to the other, as an evi
dence of bis devotion to th* cardinal prinri
ples of the ft*publican party of I HOI,—one
of which principles was «frequent rotation
in office.” It b well known that the enuisci
atioii of tlib sentiment was not without its
effect: it won many part ixans to the standard
of Gen. Jackson, who vainl/ dreamed that
th* doctrinas of *98 were about to be revived
under the auspices of a •• second Jefferson
But he was elected—he tasted of the sweets
of power—and lo!
‘‘A slisngs same oVr the spirit of his dream 3*
In dcf.anee of hb pledge to retire from office
at the end of one tgriu, aad as if in solemn
mockery of his recommendation to amend
the constitution in such a manner as to re
strict bb successors by this limitation, ho-is
a candidate for re-election : and not a reluc
tant candidate, constrained to occupy that po
sition by the affectionate entreaties of a con
fiding people—but voluntarily a candidate_
and even worse than that, nominated by th*
Legislature of • powerful Commonwealth, in
obedience to the eoUeitation* of hb nephew
and confidential Secretary, emmmnnirmtrM U m
Member of that bodj in UlUrs franked lv the
PmidnU kitHtlf!
Nor b General Jackson contented to plan
scufi&ci for th# promotion of hi* oin umliL
Uou* views. Mr. Van Burco, tbe arch-in
triguer, to whom may be attributed manv ‘
of the aberrations of General Jackson hi.#
unf—the man whose nomination to a high
ofl.ee was recently rejected by the most dic
D.fied body of men in the world, a majority of
whom were his political associate*—the man
whose reputation ia so odious that his nomi
nation as Vice President has already created
“ schism in tbe party to which he aspires to
bo the head and leader—this man, by prac
tising the serrile arts of the courtier, has ob
tained an abtendancy over GeneraUackson.
the deleterious effects of which have lonr
*en risible, and will be felt, if not speedily
lire*tad by tbe defeat of both, Aw years to
:ome. lie must, indeed, be blind aim does
jot see that the whole policy of General
laokson, and of those who are supposed to be
nost conversant with his views and to speak
ii* sentiments, b directed steadily to the ad
vancement of one object,—and that object b
he election of MartidbVan Buren as his stio
'cmor. Strange indeed, that one who b so
lens.Urely alive to the “freedom of elections,”
>hott!d not only exert the patronage of the
rnvernment, but area bend the Interests of
he country, to promote the elevation of
mart furorit* to the Presidency, after t!ie pur

The course pursued by General Jackson,
n relation to the Tariff laws, b likewise a
itrong evidence of hb disposition to palter !
rith tbe people in a double sense. Without
wetending to eatress any opinion with re-1
fanl to the constitutionality or expedienej of

The veto on the bill tv-cl.artrr-tig the
Bank of the United State* opens a * fjr’«]
far commentary. But juath .» could not
stone to the subject in the brief *t*r0 cf aa
Addrvsa of this character, In which »u< |, a
virioty of topic* are neeeesaril* embraced.—
StiAce it to say, that in that Mr«^, M i„
almost every other important official act of
the President's brief career, is to he traced
the insidious opuratiods of that “n.ali*n hiliu
fnrf" which ha* followed him ever since hi*
ele vation to the Presidency. It may not be
unimportant, however, l» remark, that,
while the President denies the cousrthttlm
anty of the Bank charter as presented to
him /or denature, he a Arms his willingness
le preport* a fr>Jett of an institution, if uot
similar in it* dt tails, at least identical in prin
c*P-,*» with that which i* pronounced to i>«
uneonstitiitlooal. Without pausing to admire
the modesty of thb assumption of superior
political experience*, of greater AnanrmlskiU,
uiwl tif a more profound And cduprehctiHivv
intellect than b to be found in liw two Houses
of Congress, let us inquire in what part of
the coi. titutiun does ll.e President find an*
tliority for lib unborn scheme, which will not
sdike sustain the bill which lie has vetaed.» If
«ne President can find any such provision,
then we will admit that his ingenuity it equal
to hb modesty. We wiU not impute to him,
in hi* evkloat anxiety rather to change the
character of the Bank diartor, than to put
down t* institution iu«lf, • wi*h to bring
that vast Anti led institution, with the hun
dred eyes of Arjus and more than the hun
dred arms of Briar his, extending from the
central scat of its influence to the extremities
of the Union, under the control of (lie Presi
dent, and thus increasing, to *n unmanageable
flmZJES? “nd P*,ron*«* already fcar
frily ■elthough, in truth, it seems
difficult to And any other motive for views
which are repudiated by the good sen**, and
rcfutciMnr the practical experience,of ninety
»“*o ,,unar®dtt“ of the reflecting portion of
the community.
»u», wc snoura exieml this address to a
length alike inconvenient and unprofitable
were we to enumeratfl ail the well-founded
objections to tlie re-election of Gen. AmJrcw
Jackson which crowd upon our minds, toge
ther with the reflections which suggest them
selves as they are mentioned. It must suf
fice, therefore, to say, in addition to the foi e
going observations, that
He has corrupted the sources of all politi
cal intelligence, by bestowing lucmtne offi
ces on uumcrous Editors of newspaper* as
a reward for the services rendered by them
in that rapacity—measuring the value of the
reward by the extent of the prostitution.
He has corrupted th« sources of legislation,
by conferring on various members of Con
grt ss, offices of greater emolument and of
higher dignity than that of Representative
tlie re by buying their votes on the floor of
Congress, and their influence, always too
great, with their cmistituents. And this too
not withstanding be had asserted previously to
Ins own election, that such a course of poli
cy Tnust necessarily engender, if it did uot
spring from, corruption!
He has denounced tho doctrine of Nullifi
cation in South Carolina, while with a consis
tency peculiar to himself, he sustains those
who carry tlie doctrine into practice in Gcor»
He has recommended a distribution of tbe
surplus Revenue among the States,—a mea
sure than which none can be more seriously
detrimental to their prosperity or fatal to
their sovereignty, as contended fur bv the
« f*rty\ of *hk* Mr. Madisou's
celebrated Report is tho creed, uyl himself
the founder— white, at tlie same time, he
protef -es to go beyond Mr. Madison hinowlf
in his devotion to tbe doctrines of that partv.
Ho l*^s removed hundreds of competent!
officer*. without even the allegation of fault |
solely because they supported and voted for j
h»s antagonist, and appointed in their stead
“mm whose solo claims wore founded in n
servile dc col kid to hi* person;” in many in.I
stannrs indeed, he has appointed individual*
who so far from being only incompetent, su
per-added to their ignorance of tbe duties of
UMiir station* a criminal life, only exceeded
by the ihameleM audacity which provoked
and laughed at its exposure.
He ruino into power with profeMhtos of
X'Jdrm on his lips, and they have been re
deemed by tho most shameless prostitution of
Ins powers. He has effeet*d chengti indeed ; j
but they luxve been tuck changes as were not j
required by tlie interests or right* of the pro- j
plf, nor demanded by their voice.
lie pledged himself to ecooomixc tbe ex -!
pend Hurts of the government; ami they ha.c !
vastly exceeded ail previous examples.
