By the prudence, decision and 'firmness
or the republicans of 1800, tho deep foun
'dations then laid for establishing a monar
chical government in these States, were
broken up. The alien find sedition laws
wcro repealed, and llio bank aristocrats who
had identified themselves with tho govern--went,
were stripped of their power. The
same power now as then, is struggling to
establish a, monied oligarchy upon the ru
ins of republican 'government. The torics
add federalists of 1800, arc the bank whigs
and antimasons of 1837.
Mr. Jefferson once said: "Tho federal
ists now call themselves republicans, but
'Hhc name alone is changed their prinei
"'plos are tho same. The parties of Whig
"and Tory are thosC of nature. They 6x
"ist in all countries, whether called by these
"names, or by those of aristocrats and.dcm
"ocrats, wings and radicals, scn-ilcs and
"liberals. The sickly, weakly, timid man
"fears the people, and is a tory by nature:
""The healthy, strong and bold cherishes
"thenv, and is formed a whig by nature."
Observation and experience prove the
truth of these distinctions between the great
political parties. Tho avaricious, the
proud, the selfish, the sickly, weak and
timorous men of our day arc, with few ex
ceptions, found cowering under the shadow
of the bank. These are the materials for
hiakJng anti-masons, abolitionists and bank
whigs. Conscious that their sympathies
exclude them from communion" with the
grcjal body of the people, they cling togeth
er in support of aristocratical forms, monop
olies and bank privileges, and indulge in
Bccrct hatred against the pccplc. These
were the genuine tories of the revolution.
On the other hand, tho generous, the disin
terested, the healthy, strong and bold, are
generally found in the ranks of the repub
lican party. They partake of the spirit of
the great mass of the community their
sympathies arc with the people. ' They
confide, in their virtue and intelligence, and
their capacity for self government. These
wcro the whigs of the revolution, and to
such men arc we indebted for that large
share of civil liberty which has fallen lb
our lot. There is a clinching proof of
these truths to be found in the fact, that
most young men who arc left to themselves
to judge of political parties, range them
selves on the democratic side, By look
fag around us we will find in every section
jfiid quarter of the state, leading anti-masons
and bank whigs, who, when young,
ardent, ingenuous and,.confiding, set out
upon llieir political career in the democratic
ranks but when the cold, calculating, tim
orous caution of age that ambition which
is a vice avarice and selfishness, take pos
session of tho man, he naturally becomes a
lory a bank whig, an anti-mason, a mon
opolist. Hence, many of those who once
were loudest in defence of equal rights and
popular sovereignty, aie now tho wjlling
tools of the bank. The present Governor,
and many of his officers and supporters,
furnishing living testimony of such aposta
cy. They have lost the confidence of the
people, and arc seeking shelter under the
band. They have exchanged the generous
support of the community, for the concen
trated power and corrupting influence of a
monied oligarchy, and are now struggling,
with "all the aristocrats, monarchists and
monopolists, to unsettle the foundations of
this government to divest the people of
their rights, and to organize a government
deriving its powers from tho bank, and sub
ject to its supervision and dictation.
To the people we appeal, with confi
dence, in this emergency. The great ma
jority arc republicans by nature. Thoy arc
free, and wish all men to be free. Their
confidence is in themselves thoy arc the
legitimate rulers of tho land they derive
'their sovereignty from their God, and hold,
it by a title paramount to tho two-penny
pretended contracts of bank torics and mon
opolists. They arc preparing themselves for the
'decision of the great question, whether
they or the lank shall rule? They arc
rccurrinfr to the foundations of tho Govern
ment, to the wisdom and experience of
those great and good men who founded it,
and by these lights of popular sovereignty
'they will be guided. They arc examining
the rotten and corrupt (itfc by which the
-bank and its band of mercenaries and mon
mrchists claim to rule the land, Engaged in
this examination wc see a great people calm
ly deliberating upon tho best means of lire
serving to themselves and their posterity
tho inestimable blessings of civil and reli
gious liberty, and the result of their rcflcc
tiions will be such as must cheer tho heart

-rights. '. Reporter.
These arc the warning words of tho groat
oraclcof deirio'cracy, Thomas Jefiprson.
It is grateful to the patriot to sec the demo
cratic editors throughout the statcih this
tremendous crisis ofour all'airs, looking to
the great light of republican government to
guitle us through the gloom which the bank,
and monied corporations have spread over
the land. The great lights of the revolu
tion of 1770, and 'the cfvil revolution of
1800, can alorro dispel thp clouds and dark
ness that hang over us. The single, eye of
Thomas Jefferson saw the machinations of
tho monarchists and aristocrats. IIo met
them and triumphed in the war of the rev
olution he met them and triumphed, in the
civil revolution of 1800, and with his com
patriots, redeemed these states from tho
controlling power of British agents, Bank
aristocrats and monarchists, and restored to
the people their just rights. He knew tho
wiles and the tricks of the foes of equal
privileges and sp'read before tho people,
in living characters, their dangers arid the
remedy. With what singular accuracy he
has given the outlines of the present condi
tion of thingsl "Jin aristocracy founded

der the patronage of the Bank, by which
the poor have been almost deprived of bread!

the Bank has made the representative of

"HAS IT A STING IN ITS TAIL?"
When the charter of the Bank of the U
nited States was presented, in 18U0, to Gov.
Ritncr for his signature, his Excellency
was pleased most jocularly to enquire
"Ttficlher it had a sting in the tail?"
Tho question thus jocularly asked can now
be seriously and satisfactorily answered by
tho people. The "sting in its tail" has
slang thousands of honest citizens, and de
prived them of their regular means of liv
ing. It has stung the gold and silver cur
rency and expelled it from circulation, and
has venomously supplied its place by a tor
rent of "sliin-plasters."-l-It lids slung the
trade and business upon tho public im
provements, aiid cankered public confi
dence. It has slung the general welfare
and prosperity of the people! Will it not,
in the agonies produced by the overwhelm
ing dread of popular sovereignty, sting the
Governor himself, and all who ate seeking
protection from its power ? Ib.

OPPRESSIVE FLOUR MONOPOLY.

as being of the true Xantippc stock, while
the chosen partner of his name and home,

man, by trade a tailor, was so affrighted at
