FOR THE CADIZ SENTINEL, Mr. Harper The following lines were written short' Ij after the intelligence of Campbell's death reached this country. By accident they were mislaid, and only discovered a short lime since. Anxious to pay my . humble mite of tribute to the memory of one so justly .distinguished in song, I have hastily transcribed them for your paper, and shall he glnd to find them meet your approbation, as well as that of your readers. MONODY ON THE DEATH OF THOMAS CAMPBELL. BV THE LEYDON BARD. "After life's fitful fever he sleeps well." Macbeth. He dies! the honor'd Bard of Freedom dies! And sweetly flits upon his parting breath His lofty spirit to the smiling skies. While sinks the bosom in the sleep of death. Sad is the lamentation which despair Proclaims aloud with her desponding voice; Dark the horizon, once so bright and fair. Where shone yon fallen star, Apollo's choice. Ah, what fond token shall to him be paid, What wreath rcsorved for his immortal brow. Whose lyre the heart with boundingjoy obey'd, Aroused by chords that wildly vibrate now! While beauty weeps and trembles o'er the doom That shrouds the splendor of his earthly dream, The wide world feels a shade of chilling gloom Since genius has withdrawn its brightest beam. Mourn, mourn ye sons and daughters near and far; Deep be the anguish of your sudden gloom; Hope's champion now bereft of life's lone star Serenely slumbers in the silent tomb. No more ho treads upon earth's transient sward, But lies within his native mould'ring dust ; Ho sleeps not as the doom'd, forgotten bard, But as one dead consigned to memory's trust. That harp so sweet, so lofty in its tone, Now hnngs neglected in yon lifeless hall. Untuned, unstrung, untouched, and all alone, ,. Yet looked ipon dovotedly by all. Though silent still its music flows along. As some sweet cadence from a distant hore ; 'Though hushed yot liros the pathos of its song, To echo on till time shall he no more. What heart that never yet was made to own The wild convulsive thrill its numbers make; What bosom that has never felt and known The melting gush its symphonies awake? Soft as a distant strain onzcphyi's wings Comes stealing on the car at silent even', Sweet music floated from its glowing strings And touch'd the soul as breathings warm from heaven! . Then as at midnight his deep martial lyra In trumpet tones its wild alarum peal'd, The battle's thunder and its lurid fire With tenfold terror scourg'd the carnage field. And great old Ocean when his glory rung With march mnjestio through his lofty verse, A thousand untold splendors o'er him flung ' While it his brilliant history did rehearse! Let nations pour thoir waitings far and wide Upon the deed tho fatal archer's done; The past proclaims it from her topmost pride The noblest victim death had ever won. Let famed Parnassus in het glory too , The drooping laurels of low-iadness wear; The favored son who loved hor haunts to woo . Shall ne'er return again to revel there. He's gone! the boasted pride of Freedom's gone! And who shall fill his flowery laureate seat? On whom shall be his classic mantle thrown, , . So filled with life and Inspiration sweet? Loud echo answers none dare claim the prize Amid the crowded throng of hli compeers, .. Fame speaks his name unrivull'd 'nenth the skios, And his smooth numbers musio of the spheres. ; Cheap Ornaments. When Dr. Franklin was 'in Paris, his daughter, Mrs. Bache, wrote to him for a supply of feathors and thread lace. The Doctor declined it in the following characteristic note : "If you wear cambric ruffles asl do, and take care not to mend the holes, they will come in time to be lace; and feather,my dear girl,may be had in America from every cock'f tail."

In pursuance wilh the usage of the party, nnd in conformity with the call of the State Central Committee, the delegates of the democracy of the State, met in convention, in the city of Co lumbus, on this, the morning of the 8th of Janu ary, 184G. The convention being called to order by John B. Weller, on motion of B. B. Taylor, Samuel Medary was chosen President pro tern., by ac clamation. On taking the chair, Mr. Medary was greeted by the plaudits of the convention, and in a few brief remarks, impressed upon the members of the convention the necessity of union and har mony. On motion of T. VV. Barlley, George W. Mor gan, of Knox, and Joel B. Buttles, of Trumbull, were appointed Secretaries pro tetn. On motion of T. W. Bartley, it was Resolved, That the delegates of the respective Congtessional districts, meet at 12 o'clock, nl places to be designated by tliem respectively, for the purpose of appointing two committee-men from each Congressional district; one to act on a committee for the appointment of permanent offi cers, and one to act on a committee to report re solutions for the action of the convention. A scries of re-olutions being presented by Dr. Drake, of Muskingum, on motion of H. C. Whit man, they were referred to the committee on Resolutions. On motion of Dr. B. Tappan, it was Resolved, That the Committee be appointed from the constitutional districts. Jt being suggested that a letter from D.ivid Tod, addressed to the Convention, had been re ceived the letter was loudly called for from all parts of the Convention; whereupon, at the sug' aestion oi the Chair, the letter was read by W. Duane Morgan; and the reading was frequently interrupted by the enthusiastic cheers of the Convention. Upon the conclusion of the letter, three cheers were given. On motion, it was Resolved, That the letter of Mr. Tod be pub lislied with the proceedings of the Convention. Washington Citv, Jan. 2, 184G. To the President of the Democratic Stale Con venlwn, January Hth, 1840. Sik: Aware that my name will be placed be fore the convention over which you preside, in connection with the office of Governor, it might be expected that 1 should he present at the con vention, so as to express the views I entertain upon the important questions of public policy, in which the people of the Stat are deeply inter ested. Engaged in the discharge of public duty at tins place, winch cannot be delayed, or neglected by my absence, without loss to others, I am com pelled to deny myself tho pleasure of meeting with the members of the convention, and can on ly avail myself of this imperfect method of ex pressing, through you, my sentiments upon these questions. 1 he most important questions of na lonal policy, now before the people, are, in re- ation to Oregon, the larifr, and the Independ cnt Treasury. Jn relation to Oregon, tho democracy of our state have long felt, and have frequently ex pressed a deep interest. The subject has been so fully examined and discussed, that no doubt can be entertained as to the right of the United states to the disputed territory, and the conclu sions expressed by the Secretary of State, 'that the title now held by the United States, embra cing the whole territory between the parallels of M deg. nnd 51 deg. 40 m., is the best tit existence to- this entire region, and that the claim of Great Britain to any portion of it, lias no foundation,1 will be sanctioned and supported by the democracy of Ohio. Our honor and safe ty aliko forbid its sacrifice to the "rasping ambi ion ot England, and 1 am satisfied that every de mocrat in Ohio will he prompt and ready to sus tain the general government in whatever mea sures may be necessary to maintain the national honor. The system of imposing burdens and taxes tin der the name of a tariff, upon one class of socie ty, for the benefit of another, has for a long time existed, and in now so oppressive as to call forth examination and demand relief: these burdens have fallen, and now rest with greatest weight, upon tho farming interests. To silence their just complaints, ingenious devices have frequent ly been resorted to, by the advocates of a pro tective tariff, to conceal the true nature and ef fect of these impositions. But although these devices have, in some cases, proved successful, and imposed on many, yet, on examination, the artifice has always been detected. The farming niiuiuBi ib ins great interest oi our state, iveiy- ng upon its own industry, it ought not to be tax ed and burdened for any othor interest. De manding lor itself no unjust imposition, it ought net to be subjected to unjust impositions, for the benefit of others. The views, therefore, of the President, in his late message on the subject of the taritt, will meet the cordial approbation and support of the Ohio democracy; and I will only refer to that able message as the most clear and distinct expression of the views I entertain, in common with the Ohio democracy, on that im portant subject. I he method recommended by President Polk, for the collection, safo keeping, nnd disburse ment of the public revenue, ia the offspring of past experience ana necessity. the evils and abuses or every other plan, re quire a prompt return to the system first estab- i shed by our government, by the adoption of the Constitutional Trensury, as recommended by the President; and in this, at in other important re commendations, I doubt not the President will receive the aid of every Ohio democrat. in our own state, questions crowing out of past egislatlon, especially that of last winter, call for distinct examination. By our political opponents then and still in power a system of policy was developed, nnd vigorously prosecuted, hav ing for Us object the most iniquitous nnd unjust purposes, and lending to the overthrow of all democratic principle,. Their fraudulent and wicked system of banking, adopted last winter, enable the leaders of the whig party to boast that they have acquired, and will maintain, dominion over the state, and thus secure to themselves, not only the power of exempting from taxation their capital invested in their fraudulent institu tions, but, the means of imposing taxes upon the farmer, mechanic, and laborer, to any extent that party extravagance and corruption may desire For uncompromising hostility to that system, I hope that every democrat in Ohio will pledge himself. To tho subject of banks, and banking in gane ral, I have given all the consideration its great importance demands. Although believing them dangerous, I once entertained the opinion that banks might be so guarded and restricted, by In gislative provisions, as to be of sufficient benefit to tolerate tlieir existence; but subsequent reflec- tion and consideration have convinced me, that any system of banking that can be devised, must be based upon unequal privileges, by which the few gain wealth and power at the expense of the many, and therefore violating that great pnnci pie of our government 'Equality.1 Again: the sad experience, especially of the people of Ohio, and the records of our courts, both civil and criminal, show that all the guards and restrictions that may be thrown around a paper currency by law, furnishes no adequate se curity to check its evils and frauds, and clearly indicate that t he peace and well being of society require the abandonment of all grants of corpo rate and special privileges. Some evils have de veloped themselves in our system of state govern ment which seem to require an organic remedy and indicate a necessity for a State Convention, to amend the constitution, and thus provide such changes as experience has shown to be necessa ry. In my opinion, the constitution should in clear, express, and unequivocal terms, prohibit the granting of all charters and exclusive privile ges. The power of creating a state debt, and imposing taxes upon the people-, should be limi ted within just bounds. Judges, clerks, and all public officers should be chosen by the people, whose servants they arc. nnd to whom they should be directly accountable. The judicial system should be so amended as to prevent the delays and vexations of law, now attendant upon courts of justice. Tho abuse of too much legislation, should also be corrected. If these views should be in accordance with those held by the convention, and I can promote them in serving in any capacity,I shall not shrink from the post, no matter what may be the sacri fice to my own interest and convenient. Looking forward to the labors and difficulties to be encountered in tho coming campaign, wilh an abiding conviction in the truth, and confidence in the honesty of democracy, and a strong hope for its succcss,were I to consult my own feelings, I should greatly prefer that the democratic ban ner should be borne by some stronger arm than mine, out should it please the convention to entrust it to my care, it shall be defended by a stout heart, and whether leading on to victory, or borne down by defeat, it shall never be deserted and never surrendered. .Respectfully, DAVID TOD, On motion, it was Resolved, That the Convention take a recess until 3 o'clock P. M. AFTERNOON SESSION. At the appointed hour, the Convention again convened The Chair announced that a letter addressed to the President of tho Conventien had been re ceived from Richard Warner, of Medina county, which, on motion, was read to the Convention Whereupon it was Resolved, That the communication of Mr. Warner be published with the proceedings of this convention. To the President of the 8th of January Con vention : Sib: My name having appeared in some of the public prints, as a candidate to be presented to tho Democratic State Convention, for the of fice of Governor; and, as I am prevented by un foreseen circumstances from attending that con vention in person, I deem it not improper that I should inform you, and the convention through you, of my unalterable determination not to con sent to bo a candidate. I highly appreciate the honor intended by the mover in bringing my name before the public for so distinguished an of fice. But I am too anxious for the success of the democratic party, to allow any thing perso nal to myself to have the remotest chance of in terforing wilh the prospect of their success, hich much depends upon their unity. And if they can be united without sacrificing any of the prin ciples of democracy, and I am sure they can, their success will be glorious, and a work worthy of being commenced on the glorious 8th of Jan uary. . My own opinion remains unchanged as to the importance of adhering closely in prosperity ana in auversuy 10 correct principles, it we i 1 . . . I . n abandon any principles of equality for the pur lose of gaining temporary success, we inflict a usting injury upon ourselves, and the cause we undertake to support. If we have erred hereto fore, in departing from any of our principles, let us immediately return, nnd if human progress and the progress of events call for the adoption of any new measure for the purpose of carrying out the eternal principles of justice and equality, let us not shrink from our duty, though our ene mies sneer at what they call progressive demo cracy. 1 he surtuce ot our noble state, so uni formly even by nature, has upon it a mountain of state dobt, and in this mountain are nurneious volcanoes, called banks, ready to burst upon us. The governor has told us that the bank question is settled by the law of last winter. If this is so, then is the triumph of federalism complete then a moneyed aristocracy, with exclusive pri vileges given them by law, are allowed to plun- er the people forever, without responsibility to either the civil or criminal law then are we become slaves indeed. But I apprehend that this question is not yet settled in this manner I apprehend that the democracy will war aeainst exclusive privileges and every other species of injustice, and that when this question is settled, t will be settled so that every man in this free stale shall have equal rights with his neighbor, and if any man chooses to be a banker, he shall not oe allowed to escape from responsibility.-- There aro a number of important questions that will come before the convention for consideration. May wisdom and harmony prevail in the conven tion, and may the candidate of the democracy be elected, is the hearty wish of yuui humble ser vant. RICHARD WARNER. The committee not being prepared to report, Charles Keemeliu was loudly called for, and ad dressed the convention in an able and eloquent manner, and concluded by offering the following resolution : Resolved, That DAVID TOD be nominated by acclamation, as the democratic candidate for Governor of Ohio, at the ensuing election. The resolution was hailed by a burst of enthu siastic applause, and the Hall rang long and loud with the cheers of the convention.

On motion of W. Duane Morgan, The report of the committee was received, and their nominations unanimously confirmed. Samuel Medary having taken the chair, as President, rose and addressed tho convention in substance as follows: Gentlemen of the Convention: It is with emo tions ot heartfelt gratitude, that I rise to thank vou, for this renewed evidence of your united confidence. For a long series of years, I have had the honor of fighting shoulder to shoulder with the noble democracy of Ohio a democracy which, although sometimes defeated, has never been conquered! In order to secure a glorious and an overwhelming triumph in the coming con test, we have but to be united. Let harmony prevail, and victory is certain! The corrupt and leagued cohorts of federalism, already quake before the advancing columns of the democracy; one bold, united charge upon their centre, will prostrate them forever. Let us then be united we should all be friends we are all friends, and recognize no foes but the enemies or lib erty. Gentlemen, I again thank you for your kind partiality and regard. On motion of W. D. Morgan, it was Resolved, That a committee of five be ap pointed by the chair, to select and report a State Central Committee for the ensuing two years.

Brown, Which committee reported the following rcs- olutions, and the same were adopted by the con vention : Resolved, That the country included within the parallels of 42 and 54 degrees 40 minutes north latitude, and extending from the Rocky mountains to the Pacific ocean, known as the territory of Oregon, is the property and part and parcel of the United States. Resolved, That there exists no power in this government to transfer its soil, and the allegi ance of its citizens, to the dominion, authority, control, and subjection of any foreign prince, state or sovereignty, Besolved, That the abandonment or surrender of any portion of the territory of Oregon, would be an abandonment of the honor, the character, and the best interests of the American people. Resolved, That immediate notice to terminate the convention with Great Britain in respect to the Oregon territory, should be given, and we rejoice that the Hon. William Allen, Senator from Ohio, has introduced a resolution to that effect in the United States Senate, and the de mocracy of Ohio expects her Representatives in Congress, to support tho measure, and pledges her lives, her fortunes, and her sacred honor, to maintain tho American right to the whole of Or egon.

Resohed, That we are in favor of a tariff for revenue purposes, strictly for the support of the General Government, but opposed to a protec tive taritt, winch indirectly taxes the many for the benefit of a few, and which builds up mono polies hostile in their very nature to civil liberty Resolved, That the constitutional Treasury system Willi the 'specie clause,1 such as was adopted by the revolutionary Congress, under ine administration ot Washington, and ic-enact- ed under Mr. Van Buren, is demanded as a measure of safety to the General government, as the only means ot cutting tne government loose irom a corrupt ana a corrupting alliance with tanks and bankers.

For the last ten years a portion of the whig party have been prophesying a dissolution of tho Union. Every great measure suggested by the Democratic party, and approved by the people, would certainly produce a dissolution of the Un ion. But tho country is yet a unit notwithstand ing. The last Legislature of Massachusetts re solved, in effect, that if Texas came into our glo rious confederacy, the Stale would go out! But Texas is now in, and yet we see no indica tions that Massachusetts is even preparing to go out. As in a dozen other instances, they intend ed no such thing; it was a ruse, to conciliate tho Abolitionists, these things should be remem bered of them as not only hypocritical, but of evil tendency, and calculated to give wrong im pressions abroad. It illustrates also the frivoli ty of a whig legislaturo at home. Cincinnati Union. . Speakers of I he House.
