Mr. B. What' ha thought of thoso fellows
that: were. bailing from "the .American
ranks. Mr. B. replied that ho thought but
littlo of them; that ho. would hato to hare
themlieloiig to his -company if he was in
an engiigemen.t,.for they would certainly
run; and, said he, if I joined tho American
party I would certainly have stuck to them
until I gave them n fair trial, for I will as
sure you that their- principles are good',
Mr7 A. said, that the object was to get all
to. bolt that they could, and that there were
many soft-headed Democrats that had
"ioined iho 'Americans: that could bo: led
about just as the leaders pleased, anU it we
curt just get thom back until after this elec

that it was much the largest, and that the
Americans challenged tho Democrats to-
meet them, hnd. they accepted it, and they
then biwked out, and that Dr. Flowers and

the whole of that description is a notorious

American cause is flourishing in Walrtttt
like the green bay tree planted by the river

While' Got. Medill wan a Representative

of Northern jights, .: This js particularly

... We gi'o below a, few.. items of record
erldetice, it) . refyrencO.'. to the Governor's
dongressional course. . . . " .
Oil the 30th December, 1833, ho toted
in favor of Mr. Wise's resolution restrict
ing the right of petition, and on the same
day he voted In favor of the resolutions' of
Mr. Garland, having in view the saine bb
ject.'' ' ' '' i ' "-
Again ; on the 14tli January, 1 040, be
voted in faror of the resolution of Mr.
Thompson, of South Carolina, and on. the
17tb of .the same month, ho voted, in favor
of tliO resolution of Mr. Coles, both having
in view the overthrow of the right of peti
tion. ' ' - . :" - - ''"'
This warfare respecting the right of pe
tition .was kept up .by. fire caters of the
South, aided by Medill, on the one' side,
and by Mr. Adams,vith his patriotic band,
on the other, among whom was Millard
Fillmore, 'until tho 23th of January, 1840,
when it was decided for that session. Mr.
Thompson's resolution was tho special busi
ness of the day, Jt was as follows :
liesolvttls Thtii unon the presentation of
any memorial Or petition, praying for the
abolition'of slavery or tho. slave trade, in
any District, Territory, or. Suite, of the
Union, and upon tho presentation of any
resolution or other paper,- touching that
subject; flic" reception of sucli "memorial,
petition, resolution or paper, shall bo con-
itidered as objected to, and the question of
its reception shall be laid on the table with
out debate or further action thereon. ;
Mr," .Adams proposed tlic following as h
Substitute! .....
Every petition presented by the speak-.
or, or by any member, with a brief vorbM
statements ot its contents, siiail be receivou,
unless objection be made to its .reception
for ppecial reason; and whenever objection
shall bo made to the reception of a petition,
the name of tho member objecting, and the
reason oi : the objection, shall bo entered
upon tho journal. The question in every
such ca8a,sha)J JJCjSiaW tht petition le re-
jtfledl And .no petition shall be. rejected
but by a majority of the members present;
Whereupon'.'Wm. Cost Johnson, of Mit-
rylnnd, offered tlic following'as an amend
ment to the amendment of Mr. Adams:
?That rio volition,. memorial,' resolution,
or, other; paper,' praying- the abolition ;ot
slavory in tho Distriotof Columbia, or any
State or --Territory, or the slave trade be
tween tho States or Territories of the Uni
ted States in which it now exists- shall be
received, by this . House, or entertained in
any way whatever-f ' : .
Upon the Cnnl'vote 'bh the" adoption of
the amendment, as upon nil previous votes,
Mr. Medill voted in the affirmative; And
thus, by, a majority. of .."only ...six-, t'ofc, tlie
(wonty-first rule,-; known as the "gng,
sprang Into ''existence. ' r- -'
A&ain-: on the 13th April. 1040,-when
Mr. Adams' presented the joint resolutions
of the Legislature of Massachusetts, alfirm-
ing tho right of petition, and asking a ro
scission of the twenty-firet rule, Mr. M
dill, true to bis instincts, voted against the
reception of the' resolutions; and thus Was
one of the old original commonwealths da
tiled the poor privilege even of a hearing.
We nave careiullyooked through the
whole of Mr. Medill's Congressional ' rq-
cord, and have (ailed to lind a single in
stance where bo spoke or voted on behalf
of freedom; and while-the ''old man elo
quent" was devoting the brief remnant of
his useful and honorable ito to thu cause
of civil Jiberty, he had the mpttijoa.ljon to
find in ono of free Ohio's sons, an oppo
nent as persistent arid unfelenting as any.
whom he encountered from tho -South.
' What friend of .the venerated" Adams
shall now be found rewarding Mr. Medill
with bis surpoTt ? . t. .t:. ... ai.wT.t ;
Mr. Medill What Is he!,
As editor of the Oazette, some two years
ago,1 we reviewed the jpaSt hfstbry of this
small great'n)aoY ,ah'd .a, full. analysis
of his chArnctcr. - Time has but served to
strengtheft the opinions wbioh we then ex
pressed. Although Medill has been in of
fice almost - uninterruptedly for tho last
t wen ly years, we ue ty any one to pom t to
any great and usofnl measuro whicli was
over originated by. him. :.W? defy any one
to show that ho has ever dono anything to
promote the prosperity bf. Ibis .county and
city,. The history of bis past life sho.ws
that ho lias been a mere politician bare
fully following the lenders of bis party
and never daring 'to take an-independent
stand upon any question
1 is vain to inquire what great tervlces
Medill "has performed ?of the country for
the thousands of dollars ho lifts drawn from
the publio treasury. .Ho baa 'made bis
mark no whero. One thing he has done.
He has gained a peculiar claim to the title
of Dnuaoors. - ' :. .'

the natives wheo ussaulted br the for-
eigners, turn upon 'their assailants, and put
a tew of them hart da eomhal. tliey ar
murderers, rubbers, ic. Tliis was tha case
in IJuisviDe, where it was proved, that in
every inatance, tha assault waf commenc
ed by ' foreiirners: and ' vet some editors
wanlonlyJaUify the facts, nud daily repre
sent the natives as monsters, who deserve
the punishment of death. " Perhnp it i
desired that Americans should permit for
eigners to enter their houses, kick them
out of doors, and take possession without
resistance. Bnt thore who look or hope
for such a state of things, will be disap
pointed. ' It is not' characteristic of an
American to submit to an indignity or re
ceive a blow(without returning it with in
terest.. There may be "some American
who would receive a kick from a foreign
foot as a favor, particularly if a vote
were to . be given as a consideration; but
it would be. dangerous to. try the experi
ment on the mosses of American citizen.

One feature of the present movement,
Mr. Gibson "poke of. whieh i new ana
significant, viz: That the people

governed by their own reflections upon a"
great self evident truth.

that "our bank are only kept irt existence
