Fflurlu of Jnly, 1776, Thfn and Now.
Upon the return of the anniversary of
'tho subilmcBt civil event in the record
of human history, that of a subject poo

around the atandord of democratic lib
erty,, , . ..j...;. .a'".

Annmlit1v rKnrtornil liv n ii(!cciinn of!
Brittish Kings, published to the world
that exposition of human rights, aa their
"Declaration of American. Independence,
pledging to each other their lives, their
fortunes, and their mcst socicd honon
in support of the principles it proclaim
ed. They appealed to the supreme
Judge of ike world for their justification,
and to the primal rights of human na
' '
ture, bctlowod by tho Creator upon all
mankind, bofore the wont ofhumnn gov
ernments had ever, been fell or known.
They appeolod'to their own rights as
men, and thoy nflirnicd those rights to be
"self-evident truths," thnt they held
them in common with all mankind, be
cause all men were created equal in re
spect to their rights. That unless for
feited by his own wrong, every member
of our raco comet into tho world invts
ted with those rights, and thai all human
power, concentrated in a single arm
would be impotent to take away, tliougli
it might ravish and prostrato thoso
rights, personified in the lowest and wea
kest individual on the face of tho globo,
clad in the garb of humanity.
The statesmen of that day had a truo
conception of tho the sublime character
of man, whom they regarded as possess
ing rights which he could forfeit by his
own wrong, but otherwise, high above
the reach of human power.
Before this period governments had
been founded cither on tho arbitrary
will of of military conquerors, or upon
the mero conventional regulations of the
majority of property holders. In tho re
publics of former times the majority on
the most frivolous pretences had power
to expel the most virtuous man from
bis native soil, as thoy did "Aristidos the
just" from Athens. Tho majority had
power over human life, ami thus put to
death Socrates, ono of tho brightest
characters that has ever adorned human
nature. Under the military systems
there never has beon, neither is there
now any security for person and life.
John Locke regarded the true end
of govcrnmont as being the protec
tion of property, but the declaration of
our independence acknowledges no des
potism, either mooarchial or democratic.
It declares every person bom with rights
of which while blamelessly possessed
no human power con deprive him. It
regards man as being "endowed by his
Creator with certain inalienable rights,''
and "that to secure those rights govern
ments aro instituted among men, deri
ving their just powers from tho consent'
of the governed; (bat when any form of
government becomes distructivo ofihese
ends it is the right of the people to niter
or abolish it, and to instate a new gov
ernment, laying its foundations on such
principles, and organizing its powers in
tuch form as to them shall seem most
likely to effect their safety and happi
ness." Then indeed, thcie were not wanting
pale counsellors to fear "conserva
tives" who would have withheld the
delegates of the "general congress" from
the course they wore pursuing because
it tended in a direction then untrodden.
But the legislators of 1776 were not ter
rified by the timid suggestions of the
conservatives of that day, nor by the ap
peals ofmonied classes, which so often
stifles the voice of justice. They knew
that they were right, and trusted in God
and the people for consequences.
To Jefferson belongs exclusively ond
forever the high renown of having con
ceived words to express with the indig
nant energy of a prophet of the Most
High, those great fundamental truths, on
which the fabric of human government
should alone be reared. To hit memo
ry the benedictions of this, and of all
succeeding ages are due for reducing the
theory of Democratic Liberty to its sim
plest elements, and in a few lucid and
unanswerable propositions establishing
a foundation, on which it now tecuroly
reared our structure of : confederated
Democratic empire, extending from the
blue Atlantic to ' the great peaceful
Ocean. :'; -.. ,

but an Empire Rock as our own foun
dod on tho' aJumautine basil of .truth
and universal Equity, mocks the vain
predictions, and still vainer aspirations
of thoso who cither fear or wish its fall.
The two first great battles in our
civilisation wero won by our ancestors.
They won liberty of thought and con
science from the priest, and liberty and
security of person from the tyrant.
How terrific and grand that act when
our ancestors, as the "gunge of battle'
against tho peoples oppressors, hurled
at tho tyrants of EngUnd tho bleeding
hoad of their Kin;."
The next great achievement of our
people will be far more difficult than
oither of the former, because it involves
astiuggleon tho toil, between avarice
and justice, between monopoly and e
quality. Tho great question now moving the
lien r Is and minds of men is whether the
Earth shall centinuo to bo a subject
of truflic and of merchandise, whether
wild and uncultivated land shall be the
subject of property to any but its actual
j "uPant'
These anl sonio others of kindred na
ture are questions that cannot bo put
off, but must be solved by this, our gen
eration. The men of 1770 were bold innova
tors upon tha thon existing system of
govcrnmont, they assumo.l tho position
of Reformers of tho institution of Civil
society, they spoko of the Luwt of na

Whig principles.
Tho Register of last week, taking ex
ceptions to our notice of tlicwA; resolu
tions, (for they aro emphatically whig)
is out in a labored articlo to rekindle
the expiring spark of whiggery, and wc
have been watching the mountain's la
bor, designing to herald the advent of
tho mouse.
Its accuracy in tho statement of fact
is astounding, to vulgat minds at least.
The great expounder says: "more of tho
people's money was embezzled by
Jcjfltlc office holders in the ten
year P'rig in 1811, than the sum to
tal orall other losses incurred by the
public treasury fi:ni the commencement
ofWashington i administration down to
the close of Mr. Fillmore's." Hero is
a wholesale chargo of embezzlement of a
vast and indefinite amount, preferred
against those administrations, tliSt in
the absence of nil other evidence upon
tho subject, would have convinced all
who might hoppon to cotch a glimpse
of this great light, that it is tho apostle
of modern whiggcry, and that its author
is worthy of the position to which he as
pires, of being the great whig centre in
Ohio, around which those of'smaller
mental calibre' shall revolve in regular
succession. However we profess to have
read tho current news and history of the
times during that period, and nover be
fore heard that the officers under Gen.
Jackson's administration were guilty of
"embezzlement of the people's money,
but as the Register makes tho charge,
we presume it will furnish the evidence.
at least. Under Mr. Van Buren's ad
ministration, it is true that Samuel
Swartwoul was a heavy defaulter. Yet
the democratic party never attempted to
conceal the fact, or mislead the public
mind by falsehood, or hypocritical eva
sion of the subject. ... On the contrary, a
great portion of the democratic party be
lieving that the executive should bo held
responsible for the conduct of his crea
tures, refused to re-elect Van Buren.
But to make the charge effective, it it
necessary to conceal the fact that Swart
wout has paid up hit indebtedness to
the government, and set an example that
we hope to tee followed by tbe "land
t!iarks"vof more recent notoriety. ,
Still there is no parallel in the two
cases.: ' wartwout, the creature of the
I executive department, could not be do-
tectcd in hit delinquency until hit ac
counts were '' nettled. Cor win, "a por
tion of the executive department itself,
appropriating to unlawful purposes the
money be was appointed to guard, and
endeavoring by ovation of law to give it
the appearance of legality. 1 Many Bon

promptly joined with the democrats in
denuncletijn of the who.esale frauds up
on the Treasury .by the oflicere of iho
lato adrainijsiration,. "while the Register
pnd Id like have no rabuko for them.
When we ace newspaper editors at
tempting to conceal tuch stupendous
"emocirleinsnts' merely because they
wore perpetrated by - their own party
friends, we are constroined to believe
that thev have lost their perception of
.;.--..;. . . I , r
to calumny, a tool thai will not rust in
hit hands, whether lie usee it in tho
light or in the dark.
"The Hietor of ilie Aminittralion of
Jackson, and Van Buren is not yot en
tircly forgotten."
; Truo Mr. Register, to the oncrgy of
Andrew Jackson, and tho faithful ad
ministration of tho government In his
hands, millions of free born and inde
pendent democratic citizens, will re
spond with loud ac."lamoiions of praise,
when the flickering Jeck-o-lanterns
that now attempt to bedizen the sun
with their lightning-bug splendd shall
have passed away like tho fog and the
early dew and left no trace of their ex
istence behind. !
Did nur limits admit, we would likol
to publish ins chart ol "whig(r) prin
ciples" entire "Honorable peace with
all nations." An avowed opposition to
tho last war with England, and tho dec
laration on the floor of congress by a
whig leader, that would not vote appro
priations to tho army, though the ene
mies were battering down the walls of
the capital. Then that was (honora
ble peace, though our vessels were sear
ched at pleasure, and our citizens im
pressed into foreign service and detain
ed against their will. A refusal to grant
supplies to our soldiers iu Mexico tho' i
sent out by tho government to repel the
repcatod usurpations of a foreign power.
And this too you denominate a rfi'shon-
jorablo peace that was enjoined by the
only power that was able to enforce it,
do you? Will the Register inform us
whether or not the peaco that resulted
from tho Revolution was "honorable!''
"Internal improvements by the gen
eral government which are national in
their character." . Tell us who beside
whigs ever advocate ! internal improve
ments that wets sectional in their char
acter ? " The increase of notional
prosperity, anl tlio growth of the
wealth of the poople." Was the coun
try ever more prosperous than under iu
present democratic policy and govern
ment,? Who are your people? If tho
masses, we are with you for an increase
of their wealth. If corporate compa
nies bo yowj people, we object to in
creasing their wealth at the expense of
our people, who aro the bone ond sin-1
ew, tho producing power of tho nation.!
"A regard for the obligations of con
stitutions, or organic laws, a faith in
ill em as barriers to wild and extrava
gant notions of repeal.' Repeal nnd veto
power, have ever haunted the whig part
as effectually arousing their fears, as
did Bonquo's ghost the remorse of
Macbeth. When the immense mon
eyej power ofwhig monopolists has been
brought to bear upon the law making
power, and by bribery and corruption
has secured a favorite object, as for in
stance the establishment of the U. S.
bank in Pennsylvania, repeal was a
word that with all its meaning; whig
gery would fain have erased from the
English dialect. Here we take issue wiih
the Register, on l are proud to soy that
ono of the fundamental principles of the
democratic party is that tho law ma
king power uas always the samo Vitality
and whonever a law proves injurious,
or unequal in ita operation, they have
the same power to repeal they had to
create. And if the Register relies upon
tlio constitution of Ohio as a barrier to
repeal, it is leaning upon a false hope
for the support of monopolizing corpo
rations. 'Whoever will t.'ke tho trou.
bio to read tha debates in tho constitu
tional convention, will find that the
word "repeal" was inserted in our "or
ganic law," for the purpose of enabling
the Legislature to dissolve corporations
whenever they should become monopo
lies, and array themselves against the
interests of the masses of the people.
"A wiso economy, arid judicious ap
propriations." A strict accountability
in disbursing officers." ' . "
. The giving the land to corporate com
panies, while the poor settler that hat
improved it' in tho. hope of securing a
home to himself and his children it com
pelled to abandon it to the interett of the

propriation of $400,000 to the payment
of a fraudulent claim, prosecuted, and
mostly received by the ditburting officers.
Tho payment of a large turn for the trans
portation of money from place to place

send for the statesman, which is to be
published in the same form and size it
was last year. Advance terms single copy

A club of fifty it will be seen get their
paper lor. 20c U each. Ironton will
certainly tuko fifty copies, perhaps a
hundred which will bring the paper at
15cts per copy. Wc hope some one
will see to gotting up a club immediate

Statesman is edited, a sure guaranty
for its success.
W heat Crop.
We find in our exchanges complaints
in various sections of the cou itry, of
domnge to the wheat crops by the fly,
while on the contrary where the fly has
not affected the grain, the crop is stated
to bo excessively good. Somo of our
farmers say their wheat is as good as
the) ever saw, if not tho best We
think tho wheat crop will give more than
an average yield throughout tho world.
