Yuri AP1ND EUROPE! ' The federalists 'in 1840 made a great adb beeatlse, when advt)'caiinj the Sub-Treasury law, Van Buren made the casual remark that the 'neasure was not new and untried, as man' of the most prosperous batiohs of the eart'i, got along without a National Bank, as a fiscal agent. But now, we Gnd Henry Clay advocat ing a National Bank because ENGLAND has one because the most despotic and tyranizing halidhs in the world have them! Hear what Clay has says in his Raleigh speech: " - "The necessity for a national institution does not re sult merely froth1 the existence of local institutions, but it arises from the fact that all the great commercial nations ot the world have their batiks. -ENGLAND, Prance, Austria, Russia, Holland, and all the GREAT powers of EUROPE, have their National Banks." Well, here is the great leader ol the British Whig party, advocating a National Bank because VICTO RIA has one, the EMPEROR of Austria, and all the other TYRANTS have them! And il'Clay gets into power' he'll want a CRO WN and a THRONE be cause the AUM'OCRAT of Russia has theml Eng land has both a Bank and a Tariff, and she ?. has her STARVING MILLIONS, and ber purse-proud, pam pered Lords and Dukes, who ride rough-shod, over tbe necks of' an oppressed people! Ah, yes we must tax and oppress odr people, because England does the same to hersl ' We must ha ve a Bank to FEE our No-bility-our Clay's Websters, Ewings, &c., because the Aristocracy of Europe are kept up in that way! Most . certainly! . "If we cannot have BLACK slaves we must have WHITE ones!" is the rallying cry of Federalism! But the Demdrracy are aroused-they have scented these monstrousschemeg from afar, &;hey are now rallying from town and city, from mountain and glen, in the south, east and west, north and every where, to put down the British party in America!. They ' WILL conquer-Clay- is a doomed man and he may as well now get down, like Belshaizar, and eat grass for the hand writing is on the Wall! ' WHO IS THE ARISTOCRACY The whig party desire the establishment of a United States Bank, a' Protective tariff and a Distribution of the Surplus Public Funds arising from the latter acts. Is not the tendency of wealth to aristocracy and does not a mammoth bank tend only to ma ke the rich richer! Is not the effect of a Protectee Tariff, only to bloat the monopolist and nialfe him the tyrant ol the poof laborer and dependent? ; Will not the: effect 'of the Distribution act be only to afford the speculator the , opportunity to riot upon and plunder the property of honest citizens'! Who then is the friend of the Aristocracy'? Truly we believe truly he who takes sides with the whig cause. Then contrast the measures of the whigs with those of the Democratic Republican's of.the.country oh! indeed, those ot those of the lalt.-r contrast most beautifully with those of the former. The Democracy contending for equality, jostiee, right, universal liberty and the world over. Choose ye then wisely, f. with a free conscience you can say you have done your duty your duty to yourself, your fellow men, and to your country; to your God and liberyA-Oi S. &p. SHAMEFUL CONDUCT. OF THE WHIGS- . .. - - : ' I- Look otiT. . ' -. ' We ha Ve received several letters, particularly from Warren and Clinton counties, stating that one whig is bettingsmaM amounts with-a' great number of demb eart, to' deprive thm of voting. There is bo such law in the1 State as prevents a man voting because he has bet on the election; and any Judge that would so de cide, would subject himself to severe penalties. Demo crat's! you bate yet to guard your rights at every point. If such were: the law, bait the whigs in this town would be disfranchised! But there is no such law ! I And no judge' dare' refuse a vote ort that accoun t. Never wr.s federalism more desperate man nt present, ana yen must guard ourselves accordingly . ; P. S. Tbe Cincinnati Gaze tte, we see, charges the democrats' with bettitlg one against many whigs, but does not sajf that it does not deprive the latter of then righUo vote: The Gazette meant to back its friends in their attempt at fraud, lot it knows better. There is no such l&vf.-r Statesman. v 'V'-- HOW.

In the South, the Whig press makes every at tempt to smother Clay's tetter , to Raleigh. While bis la test letter on texas', is given as a'co nclusive evidence of his devotion to Annexation. In the same manner bis letter to.Cope in favor of the present Tariff, , is superce. ded by the whig pa pers in (be South by.hls letters to . Bronfon and AierriWethir, wherein he says it" ought to be alteied and amended: Such are the miserable shifts whifgery. : Can an honest people be swindled out.of their suffrages by such lascally scheniesl We trust not. ;. WHIG PROTECTION. : This kind iif protection, says the Hartford Times, is well understood by the faririefs. Nevfr has the farmer been so shoft ol a market. His produce he must sel' at one half tbe price he obtained ia 1810, while he finds himself compelled lo pay an advanced price for cloths. sugars and molasseV Foreign nations will not buy our agricultural products, because we will lake nothing that they manufacture or produce in return'. .Our restrictive laws are destroying our markets, arid oppsessing the people. ' Capital is protected at the expense of the Inbor and Industry of the country. rThis is the result uf Whig ptotection. They do not, as recortmemicd by James ,K. Polk, protect Agriculture, Manufactures,, Commerce and the Mechanic arts alike but they bestow' bounties on one interest to fhe injury of all oihets, and by op pressing all otbcri.: ' '-' .' ' -. ' ' ;' - rTht! New York Herald, in alluding to the IjcUing gningon in New York, says the' cry is: "A hundred io s:vaty.-flve that Wri;bt carries th State." THE IRRESISTABLE.ENTHUSIASM OF THE DEMOCRAUY-NEW.'YORK STATE SAFE FOR POLK AND DALLAS. - : From old Suffolk to Albany the whole people are in a blaze of patriotic excitement. .- Hickories at every lend ing banners bearing the inscription ot "Polk and Dal las, Wright and Gardiner" are seen before almost every homestead- Oa board Of the steamboat, "Polk and Dallas" is the theme or 'conversation. Look at a lum berman coming slowly down the noble Hudson, aid you will see "Polk and Dallas" upon a banner stream ing with the wind. Pass the tow boats and you will be greeted with loud cheers for Polk and Dallas.- Get to Albany and visit the immense canal basiu. Take a view of the innumerable canal boats which bear in to and from the West such an immensity of wealth, and see at stem and stern the little banners, "Polk and Dallas forever." Then mix with the hardy boatman with their sunburnt and weather-beaten countenances smiling with the certainty of victory for Polk and Dal las. Grasp them by the hand and draw them near you and you will discover upon their red flannel shirts, cov ering their manly breasts, the war cry Polk and Dallas. The enthusiasm is unbounded.' Nothing in the history of any previous political canvass ever equalled it, and the secret of this, to some, strange enthusiasm is the strong national position which the Democracy of the Union, through their delegates at the Baltimore Con vention, now occupy." ' " ' ' ' ' Upon the old issues the Democracy bad taken their stand. Opposition to a National Bank to atili-protec-tiite tariff, protecting one where it robbed ten,- giving to the loom lords of Boston, OnS and two hun Ired per tieiiti upon their investment to an assumption' ol the Slate debts to Distribution upon all these we say the Democratic party were fully committed. But there ;'is a new element in this canvass, one which has awaken ed, aroused the masses. When Andrew Jackson first raised his Hirculean arm to crush that corrupt institu tion which bad "purchased men like cattle in the mar ket" whet) the hero statesman himself, and alone al most, stood the barrier between the usurpations and frauds ot an alarming Bank aristocracy, and the rights of the people the popttlarJ iinphlse pronounced him right, while trading politicians and schemers for the spoils hesitated in their course. When Martin Van Buren in 1837, with a morality of courage which will be ever remembered, ih a titaie Of panic when alarm and hesitancy might have been excusable, recommend ed his divorce of Banks from Government and the a doption of the Independent Treasury, the honest people approved the policy while many who had assumed the p.isition of leaders hesitated, returning only when the public mind was fully developed, add sotne'made for the "flesh pots" to remain so long as there was left any substance upon which to fatten, Opposition to the Na tional Bank was a great and righteous movement; mere politicians hesitated while the people advanced to a sup port of Geff. Jackson. Opposition to a union between the general goverflmenf arid th State Banks was a irea sure equally good and equally righteous politicians hesitated while the people eame to the support of Mr. Van Duren vln both these cafes Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren and the people were right while the presumed leaders were wronp;. The new elemen' whic,h the patriotism ot the Baltimore Convention ha brought fnto this canvass, we mean, the occupation ol Oregon ani tbe re-anhexatiou of Texas; has caused the popular fteling to uprise. These two great questions have developed the strong national predilections ot the AmSrican people, and are carrying us on to a victory such. as was never before known. They are the secret of the immense .rally they account for the universal enthusiasm in favor of the Republican candidates. While the old issues are adhered to, these "interpola ted" questions have brought out the national' ihipUlse, and marked the Democratic party as the great antago nist of British principles in this country. The popular ehord is touched, and those who have regarded them selves as leaders of the Democracy, and have evinced the usaal timidity of mere politicians when new ques. tions come op, already perceive that neither Iddividua) position nor influence" can control the mighty woiking of a correct and patriotic public sentiment. The occu pation of Oregon and th'e annexation1 6f Texas were re garded by the people as the old man of the Hermitage regards them. Britain would usurp the one and con trol the other. It is her polic so to do! The people think with Andretr Jackson "show me,', says that venerable and venerated hero and statesman, "wtiat the policy we should pursue." The British is the aritage" nist of the Republican principle tH Opposite of the British policy is the American policy. However com manding the talent, however exalted the position, how ever great the services performed, no statesman can misdirect the national instinct, if be attempts if he wi' fail. " - . ; The noble, patriotic, national, Democratic conduct of that great convention of great men, .the Baltimore Con tention, have placed the party upon its proper ground It stands bold against every measure of Federalism it stands bold ri opposhfbtt to British usurpation and in trigue. ., The result js that the whole coilntrV Is on fire to confirm at the ballot boxes the election of that Con vention, and in no other is the. enthusiasm more deep the determintion more' earliest, the prospects more bril liant and certain,', than in the great Empire State for such a triumph as is yet unrecorded on the.' archives of the Republican Party. - , -t ? j ; " : :'..''.--"'';''.-''.' :'.
