Kind and corteous Reader! You were apprized through the columns of the Sentinel last week, that M McGonaole, who has been its able editor for a long time past, had disposed of the establishment to the under signed. In assuming tho arduous, duty of conducting the organ of tho Democratic party in this county, and becoming a caterer for the public taste, we are altogether sensible of the responsibility of the situation we are pi; ced in. We shall, however, call into operation every faculty we possess, to make tho paper useful and,cntcr taining to its readers, and a true exponent of Democratic measures; for wo verily believe that the salvation our beloved country, tho perpetuity of our republican institutions, and the welfare and happiness o f the people all depend on the ascendancy of Democratic principles. Our country is divided into twb groat political parties, and ever will be. During our Revolutionary straggle for independence, all those who rose in opposition to tyranny and oppression of Great Britain had one lead ing object in view, viz : a separation from tho mothor country, and the establishment of an independent gov- eminent. . uy me valor, ot our arms, aim tne approving smiles of heaven, the English lion cowered before the American Eagle ourDeclaration of Independence was adopted on tho 4th of July 177G; and on the 9th the del egates from the various colonies agreed upon articles of confederation. Some time afterwaids a contention of ..of delegates assembled to adopt a constitution, and it was not until then tho discovery was made that there was a material difference of opinion among those dele gates as to the best form for a constitution. It was then ascertained that a portion of the delegates, although fa vorable to a separation from tho mother country in the first place, yet after that separation was effected, desired establishing a government similar in all respects to that of Great Britain. At the head of this party or faction was Alexnnder Hamilton of New York a man of giant intellect. On the other hand the most numerous part of the convention, were in favor of a Democratic form of Government, like that under which wo now live, and .at the head of this portion was James Madison of Virginia. The friend of a strong central government, with an elec tive monarch, officers for lifo, national bank, funding system, internal improvements by tho General -Govern. ment, &.c. &c, called themselves federalists; and the others, by way of contra-distinction, assumed to them, selves the name of anti-federalists or Republicans. And thus did parties originate. Wo will not length. en this address by following tho history of theso parties up to the present time, as we presume tho majority of our readers have made themselves familiar with it. But it is clearly evident that although the federal party have assumed as mtmy names as the cameleon lias colors, yet no person can mistake its true identity. The leading measures advocated by Vial parly are the same now, as they were during the days of Mr. Hamilton. They op posed every democratic administration from that of Mr. Jefferson, down to that of Mr. Van Buren, with tho most bitter and vindicated hostility. During the ever mem orable campaign of 1840, the federal party drqwned rea son in the bacchanal's cup, and made "no declarations for the public cyej" they resorted to a system of fraud, pipe-laying, cheating and lying, degrading to human nature, and offensive to heaven reason wes banished from its throne the people were carried away by a whirlwind of mad excitement and right, and justice, and pnnciplo, wore trampled in the dust. They succeed. ed inelocting their President and Vice President; but . Providence, in his wisdom, thought proper to remove Gen. Harrison, from a situation, which to him in his old ago, was any thing but congenial to hia feelings, sur rounded as ho was by 'n legion of cormorants, whose whole object in supporting liim seemed to be a desire to seize upon "the loaves and fishes" of office. John Tyler became constitutionally the President; and hav ing a considerable share o f the democratio blood of old Virginia coursing in his voins, and a large quantum of Roman firmness, ho acted according to tho dictates of . his own conscience, end utterly refused to violate his oath, and sanction the unconstitutional aots of n fac tious congress. Then the whole federal kennel, '.'Tray, Blanche and sweetheart, lilllo dog and all," from Ilt-n-. tj Clay down to John W. Hear,, made a violent onset ogalnst the man whose praises they wore wont to sing, in those melodious cabalistics, "Tippecanoo and Tyler " too." , , , ,, , The opponents of Democracy having gained nothing , by Iheir fraudulent victory in 1640; for all thoir schemes and measures have bean completely frustrated are : now determined to support a candidate for the Presi dency in 1844, who will not oppose them in carrying out their pernicious omi-republican measures. That person is Henry ClayJ who hae been aptly styled by themselves as the t'very soul and embodiment of whig principles.' He is now travelling in the south lmranguc ing the people, on the beauties of federalism, and dis-i turbing the quietude and sanctity of the sabbath by cil- eneating Id political excitement on that holy day of. rest. We are heartily glad that the federo'ists have now the boldness to come out, and avow their principles anfully. We like "day light and fair play," ard are determined to engage in the battle, and be even in the midst of the fight. The Democratic party have a great work before them they must labor incessantly day and ght, to maintain and preserve their cherished princi ples they Bhould use nothing but arguments, for a victo ry gained in any other manner will neither be permanent or beneficial they should address themselves to the reasoning faculties, and not the worst passions, of their fellow-citizens and above all things they should be vig ilant and united. ' We believe that the approaching election will settle ie political policy of this country for some time to come, ll tiie luuerausts gam tne ascenuancy we snail have 1. A National Rank, wi'h a capital of fifty million of dollars, exercising a control over the monetary and political affairs of the country, altogether antagonistical to the spirit of our free institutions. , 2. A High Tariff, by which the Farmers, Mechanics, and Laboring men of the United States will be taxed to Bupport a few wealthy manufacturers in our large cities, and enable them to enjoy their exclusive privi leges on a more extended scale. 3. An Assumption of Stale Debts on the part of the National Government, an old exploded scheme which had its conception in the federal brain of Alexander Hamilton, and known as his "funding system" a veiy convenient method for those States which have become bankrupt by federal legislation, to shift their indebted. ness on tho shoulders of the people of the other States. 4. A distribution of the proceeds of sales of the Public Lands among Uic Slates, a measmo which would deprive the National Government of a certain source of revenue, especially in time of war, when commerco with o'.hcr nations would be interdicted. 5. An abolition of the Veto Power, given by the Con stitution to the President a safe, conservative clause. the exercise of which by General Jackson, prevented us from being cursed with a monster bank, which when soon afterwards incorporated by a State Legislature spread desolation around, and ruined nnd beggared hundreds and thousands of families. 6. V2 host of Stale Ranks, conducted on the same prin ciples as the old fraudulent system, without the least se curity to the note holder, and liable every moment to suspend or explode, throwing the burthen of the loss on those who are least able to boar it. Against all these lavorite measures of the federal par ty, we shall fight to the death. We shall advocate tho election of MARTIN VAN BUREN to tho Presidency, not only because we deem him eminently qualified for the station, on account of his unsweiving devotion to democratic measures, politi cal and moral honesty, and incorruptible integrity, but because ho was basely defrauded out of his election in 1840. The're are many other excellent men in the dem cratic ranks, who have numerous friends in various sec tions of the country, any of whom we would cheerfully and cordially support, if nominated by the Democratic National Convention. But we honestly believe with the name of Martin Van Ruren at our mast head, wo will achieve a decisive and glorious victory in tho coming contest. We believe tho days of the federal party are numbered the hand writing is on the wall tho scep tre is departing. " They may attempt to keep up a sick ly excitement until the next Presidential election; but they are bound to be beaten, as sure as there is a sun to light the world! For ' "Truth, crush'd to earth will riso again, The eternal-vears of God are hoi's ; But Error, wounded,. shrieks in pain, And dies away among' his worshippers." Wo shall go the whole length for Davo Tod, for Gov ernor, for knowing, tho man personally, we bulicvo there is not a -sounder and better democrat in the State. His election is certain we have said it the people have said it ! . We believe with Mr. Tod that a few banks, judi ciously located, with the stock gold and-silver, actually paid in ; the stockholders made individually liable in their private as well as corporate capacity for the-re demption of every dolldr put into circulation ; the issues of the bank limited to three times tho amount of specie ; the loans io stockholders' limited to-at least ono half their stock ; and severe penalties provided against- all frauds on the part of the officers of the bank we say, with such a system as tins, ihere is no doubt but that thopcoploof the State might be materially benefitted in their business operations. But any other system, with less responsibility, we shall ever oppose. Banks have grown up amongst us, and 'havo become, as it were, a part of our political system. They havo undoubtedly done some good, but we veiily believe-this has been counterbalanced be the evil they 'have wrought. .-We believe that as a State and a nation, we would this'day enjoy more real happiness, substantial wealth, and true prosperity, had there never . been a banking in institution iu tho country. But as they now exist among us, and probably will for some time to come, let them be conducted on fair and honest principles, and attend to the legitimate' object of their creation, and keep aloof from the politics of the country. Let us have good, sound banks, which will prove beneficial to the whole people of the State, or more.' These are our sentiments, and we believe the sentiments not only of tho democratic party, but of the honest part of the whig party also. It shall be our object in conducting this paper, to ad mit nothing into its columns reflecting personally on individuals in piivato life we detest personal abuse from the bottom of our heart, and we believe the mass of our readers have no relish for such matter. Wo shall, however, fearlessly expose tho political tergiversations, and obnoxiouB heresies of our opponents. Besides the political character of our paper which shall ever be while under our control radically democratic wo will endeavor to make it a welcome visiter to every fireside. Wo will pay particular attention to the publication of such moral essays, historical sketches, and biographies, as tend to improve and elevate tho taste of the rising generation. Occasionally wo shall insert a good tale, from tho pen of somo celebrated writer; and the admir ers of choice pootry shall not look in vain in our col umns fur pieces to suit their taste. We shall give a faithful synopsis of the news of the day, chronicle all that is novel, ..interesting, amusing .nnd 'instructing. The interest of tho farmer, mechanic and merchant, shall never be neglected. As soon as we obtain some agricultural works, we will insert seasonable articles on farming and husbandry and we shall note .the flue. tuations in these market, both foreign and domestic, which will prove interesting to business men and othors, And make our sheet, in short; CO-We wotiU.patticulaily call the attention!

' ..,: In connection with tho above, wc copy tho fol lowing from tho Madisonian, tho special organ of tho administration: . 1 "Annexation of Terns. -Wo have authentic advices from Toxas, showing that with the excep tion of one member, tlyj Senators and Represen tatives in the Congress of the Republic arc unan imously in favor of 'annexation.' Wo have like wise intelligence that if Texas be not annexed to the United States, it will immediately become a dependency ot liiiglanu, and au instru ment to ruin tho commerce and manufactures of the New England States. If, the Executive of the United States should send into the Senate a treaty of 'annexation,' wc make bold to say, for the special benefit of the In telligencer, that he will bo wholly influenced by patriotic motives, lie will entertain no section al or party considerations. When sent in, should tho treaty be ma.de, it will be for the Senate, and the Senate only, to ratify or reject it. The Sen ate will doubtless act with a full knowledge of its duties and responsibilities, whether a treaty an nexing 1 exas, or one asserting our indisputable title to Oregon, or both be laid before them." In the Senate on Wednesday, March 20, Mr. Walkeji said that he had received from tho gov ernor of Mississippi certain resolutions, adopted with great, unanimity by the legislature of that Slate, in favor of the re-annexation of Texas to the American Union. Accompanying this ex pression of the opinion of the State or Mississip pi, wove resolutions, unanimously adopted by tho legislature of Alabama, in favor, also, of tho res toration of Texas to tho Union; which resolutions of Alabama had been communicated to the legis lature of Mississippi, and called forth and consti tuted a part of thoir proceedings. Mr. W. said he would not at this time enter upon the discus sion of this great question, but would move the printing of these resolutions, and that they be be referred to the committee on Foreign affairs. The motion was agreed to. The Democrats of New Hampshire arc firm and immoveable as their eternal Granite hilts, (not haac Hilly for he is a poor pitiful traitor, a used up adjunct of cooncry.)

The democrats have elected 110, and tho whigs and all others 57 representatives iu tho 110 towns. The Dover (N.II.) Gazette says: "The result exceeds our most sanguine expectations it is truly glorious and may well be rejoiced over as an evidence of the indomitable persever ance and unchangeable character of the Grauite State dernoctacy. Although false statements and slander have as usual been brought to bear 8gainst Mr. Steele ho' has gone through the battle and come out un scathed, with a large majority in his favor. We shall also have a democratic Senate, democratic House, and democratic council." . As far as heard from tho vote for' Governor is as- follows? -. ; ; Democratic candidate, - Whig, ' ; ...

Hard C'iJer an J Coons, Drc3 Call nnd Cologne. "O, judcuient thou art fled to bvutihb beasts, And it higs have lost their reason." We had supposed that after the revolting scenes of 1840, the ryerc mention of which, causes min gled feelings of regret and shame to arise in eve ry patriot's heart, we would never witness a re currence of them again. But in this supposition, we are sorry to say wc have been deceived. The federal party having succeeded, in carrying all before them in 1840, by the use of means degra ding to human nature, imagine that the same scenes can be enacted again with impunity. If we are not grossly mistaken, they will discover before the lastof October, that the American peo ple are not again to be led astray, by bacchana lian songs, lying speeches, boisterous declama tions and denunciations, and all manner of excite ment and revelry. It is only iu certain portions of the country that the federalists have attempted to introduce their log cabin foolery again, and have endeavored to convince the people by songs that Henry Clay is peculiarly fitted for chief istratc of tho American people. And it is plain to be seen that wherever the effort has been made to address the people through their passions, a powerful re-action is going on against the feder al party. Mr. Clay, and his particular friends in the large cities, believing that the magical influence of hard cider, gourds, log cabins and coons, has departed, have hit upon another method of electioneering; and now the coon has to sit "solitary and alone'' upon some old fallen tree, while his place is usurped by the cologne bottle! And instead of the log cabin, with its latch-string outside the door, we have now magnificent Clay balls, and he is deemed the biggest toad in tho puddle (ex cuse us, wc mean the most patriot wliigofthctn all) who can cut the neatest pigeon wing, and walz themost graceful on the "light fuitastic toe."
