The praet?".! knowledge which I have acqui red of the vsri.me snd complicated duties of the Chief Executive Majriatrste of the State, increa ses the diatrust I have always felt, of eny ability so to perform them, as to justify the public ap proval, and conetrains me to solicit critinu ance ot the same kind indulgence which lias been hitherto extended to me so generously. - In taking the eolemn oa.th. which the Con stitution exacts from sll who sre clothed with the delegated will of the people, it ia proper to j recall to mind the principles upon which our go. vernmentii based thA their spirit and mean ing may be apprehended, their value apprecia ted, snd the obligation to guard them, with un tiring vigilance, enforced. In the formation of our government, political power has been reeolved into its sitnpleat ele ment. It is the power of the people, by the ex pression of their will, in free and equal elec tions, to rule 1 and thia aaaumea for it basis, the great fundamental truth, that men ts capable tif tclf government. ' Thia great politics! principle, only partially developed before, wae, by onr republican fathers made the ground-work of written conetilu lion, which di fined and limited the pnwera of government, and prescribed the duties of those to whom it administration was entrust ed. Thia is tl.e animating principle of tor whole system. .' It shield life and liberty, the eqitmtion end enjoyment of property snd re potation. . Assuming the inherent end exclu- ive right of the people to . inetitute govern ment for their peace, eafety snd happtneae, it r curve religious freedom, free snd equal elec tions, the trial by jury, general education, the liberty of the pree,and sll the esseatisl guards ol religious, political, civil snd personal right. This democratic power of government, ia the security of liberty ia sll its fronts and no other fundamental, political power, is recog nized in thia country. Its happy influence is traced, in the rewsrds which follow industry and enterprize among us, with suen setonwning rapttiiiy. nut as eslth increaaea, cause that are inherent in human nature, produce inequality in its distri bution. The father of our government, toreaw the tendency of this, and that it might eventu ate in the creation of a permanent aristocracy of wealth. Wisely guarding against it, they not only abolished the laws of primogeniture snd j entails, and enacted our equal law of descent and distribution, but they secured to. tie, their posterity, the .equal right of acquiring, noeees sing snd protecting property, by nvsking it an essential srticle ot the Conatitutioo. , Still, political aociety, is, and alwaya muat be influenced, to S considerable extent, by the di" terirwg circumstance of the people. Cspital snd labor, if regarded separately, have apparently different interests . and yet thees powers, it left to their unrestricted action, under the sslu- tsry influence of our system, mutually sustsin snd ehcriah'each other. Those who repre sent each, will, in the progress of affair, change their position laborer will become capitaliata laborer 1 and these quiet, and peaeVul, and equalizing revolutions, wijl be ever in progress; neither power predominating, or injurmualy controlling the other ; but both contributing, in perfect harmony, to tbe promotion of the gener al welfare, .. .- -.i . It is to this free snd natural sombinatloo of labor and capital, under, the contiolling influ ence of religioua and civil liberty, that we must crib the unexampled progress of civilisation snd refinement assoatgat , the advance of sci ence snd tbe arte, sad the illuatrationa which surround 41s on every aide, ot the power of man to exaM hia moral and intellectual nature. ' Yet it ia s (bet, not to be concealed, that the inter esta, so beneflcratly Snd justly ' united by the wie policy otoor system, sre not alwaya con tent with that eqnafity of right, " which iain fact 'he beat security of both. ' Capital, with untiring mduatry, is ever reeking, from the Legislature, the grant' of special protection snd perpetuity of privilege.' This, if admitted, ia at once destructive of the balance bet ween these powers,' which It should be lbs aim .of, govern ment stesdily. to maintain, snd works most in juriooaly to the ciliseu, leadiog to oppression 00 the one hand, snd to dependence on the other.

Butler, one of the heroes of Mnn. terey, waa born of a family memorable fur its military renown. His grandfather waaa native of Ireland, but emigrated to America about ths middle of the laat century, and settled io Penn sylvania. When the war of independence broke out, the whole male portion nf his descen ds nte, five stalwart sons, entered tho irmy. The patriotism of the siro snd his children be came so celebrated that Washington once gave), aa a toast 'The. Butlers snd their five sons' La Fayette wss scenstnmed to say of them When I wanted s thing well done, I ordered s Butler to do it ' The subject of this biography waa the second eon of Percival Cutler, the fourth in order of these five revolutionary brothers, William O. Butler hsd just finished his collegiate course, ard waa preparing to study law, when the war of 1812 broke out. . The surrender of Detroit amused the patriotism of every American, es pecially of the eons of Kentucky ; snd s large force immediately volunteered to march on Ca nada and Chsstise the enemy. Among those who enlisted wss young Cutler; he entered sa private in Cspta in Hart's company of infan try ; but, before the army marched, waa elected a corporal. Soon after he waa made an ensign in the 17th infantry. Thia wing of the army, under Gen. Winchester, advanced on the river J Raisin, which they reached after a toilsome msrch in the dead of winter. No historian hsa as yet done justice to the privations endured by theae brave Kentuckians. Butler waa present at both the actiona on the Raiain, and on each occasion displayed great intrepidity. In the first battle, which waa fought on the 16th of Ja nuary 1814, the Americans were victorious In the second snd more memorable one, which occurred fur days later, they were defeated. In this lstter conflict Butler received s dange rous wound. The manner in which he recei ved it illustrate hi bravery en forcibly, and ia so well told by Kendall, in hia biography, that we quote the paragraph entire. 'After the route and massacre of the right wing, belonging to Welle' command, the whole force of the Bri tish and Indians wss concentrated sgaicst the small body of troops under Msjor Madison, that maintained their ground within the picketed gardens. A double barn, commanding the plot of ground on which the Kentu;kian stood, wss approached on one aide by the Indians, under the cover of sn orchard sod fence; tho British, on the other side, being so posted as to com mand the apace between it snd the pickets. A party in the rear of the barn were discovered advancing to lake rjoaeesaion of it. All ssw the fatal coneequencea of the secure lodgment of the enemy in s place which would present eve ry man within the pickets at close rifl ahot to the aim of their marksmen. Mjr Madison inquired if there was no one who would volun teer to run the gauntlet of the fire of the Bri tish and Indian lines, and put a torch to the com bustibles within tbe barn, to save the remnat.t of the little arniy from sacrifice. Butler, with out a moment's delay, took some blszing sticks from s fire st hsnd, lesped tbe pickets, and run ning at hia utmost speed, thrust the fire into the straw within tho barn. One who waa sn snx ous spectator of the event we narrate, says. although volley upon valley waa fired at him. Butler, after making anme atepeen hia way hack, turned to see if the fire hsd taken, snd not being satisfied, returned ' to the barn and act it in a blase.' ; As the conflagration grew, the enemy waa seen retreating from the rear of the build ing, which they had entered at on end aa the flame ascended in the other. Soon after reach ing the pickets in safety, amid the ahouta of hia friend, b waa struck by a ball in hia breast. Believing from the pain he lelt lhat it had pe netrated his cheat, turning to Adjutant (now Gen.) McCalle, one nf hia Lexington comrades, and pressing Lis hand to the spot, he said, ), fesr this shot ia mortal, nut while I em sble to move, I will do my duty.' To th anxious in quiries of his friend, who met hint soon sfter ward, he opened his vest, with a smile, and showed him that the ball had pent Itself on the thick wadding nf his cost Snd on his breast bone. He suffered, however, for many weeks.' Butler waa one of the few wounded who es caped the massacre, by which Proctor violated hi word and earned for himself an immortality of ahame. ' The young officer waa marched through Canada to Fort fliagra, euflVring with pain, hunger, fatigue and the inclemency of th weather. Hi natural buoyancy of apiril did not, however, give way, even under theae dis couraging circumstances , snd he whiled swsy his leisure by cultivating poetry, for which he had eome Ulcst, In IS14 he sraa exchanged, and joined Gen. Jackson in the South, with ths rank of captain. He arrived at bead-quarters just in time to join in the attack on Pensseols, being tbe only officer, st the head of the new Tennessee levies, who wss thus prompt. Fol lowing Gen.

During the conflict, the commander of the regiment got Inst in the darkness, when Butler sv senior offi cer, placed himself at the head of the men, and led them to repeated charges. . Ho also fought at the more decisive bottle of the 6th. For hia meritorious eonduct in this campaign he waa made major by brevet. Soon after, G'nersl Jackson appointed him hia aid decamp, in which situation tie continued until he abandoned the am y. In 1917, with the rank of colonel, Butler re tired to private life. Hi now resumed the atu dy of the law, married, and eettled on his petri mwial possessions at the confluence of the O hio snd Kentucky rivers. Here, for twenty five years, he resided in enmpsrative retire ment, a mode of life admirably auited to hi re fined tastes and hia fondcees for domestic life. Without a particle of what ia usually called am bition, he had no deaire for popular office, ex cept ao far as he believed he could by holding public trusts, be conducive to the common weal. At Isst, in a political crisis, he was induced by his friends to become s candidate for Congress. Twice he was elected, snd would have been e third time, perhaps, had be not absolutely decli ned. In 1844 be bees m the candidate of his party for Governor of Kentucky, when he as sisted, by his general popularity, considerably In diminish the ususl majority of the Whig par. ty . and this, notwithstanding hiv opponent waa an estimable man. Butler belongs to the de mocratic side in politics. He lias never, how evrr, been considered a violent partizan. When the war with Mexico broke out, he was created s Alsjnr Gwrsl. He msrehed with the Kentucky and other volunteers to the aid nf General Taylor, and was with that hero at Monterey. In this terrible siege, Butler was second in command. lie, like Gen. Taylor, ssw the Importance of seizing the Ssltillo road, and fully favored the movement of Gen. Worth to turn the enemy's left. From the narrative of Mjr Thomas, one of the General's compan ions in srms, we quote the following detailed account of hia heroism on that day : Worth marched on Sunday, September 20ih, thus leaving Twiggs1 and Butler divisions with Gen. Taylor. Gen. Butler wa in favor ot throwing hi division across the St. John's ri ver, and approaching the town from the east, which was at first determined upon. Thia waa changed, as it would leave but one, and per- hps the emailed division, to gusrd the camp, snd attsck in front. The 20th the general also reconnoitered the enemy's position. Early in the morning of the 21st the force was ordered out to create a diversion in favoi of Wortl), that he might gain hia position ; and before our di vision came within long range of the enemy's principal battery, the font of Twiggs', diviaion had been ordered down to the northeast aide of the town, to make an armed reconnoirance of the advanced battery, and to take it if it could be done without great loss The volunteer di vision was scarcely formed in rear of our how itzer and mortar battery, established the night previous under cover ot a riao of ground, before tho infantry Bent down to the northeast aide ol the town became closely and hotly engaged, the hatteriea of that divi.ioo were aent down, and ve teere then ordered to tupport the attack.' Leaving the Kentucky regiment to support th mortar and howitg'r battery, the general rap idly put in march, by a flank movement, the other three regiment, moving for some one snd s half or two mile under s heavy fir of round shot. , As further ordered, tha Ohio regiment wa detached from Quitman's brigade, and led by the general (at thia time accompanied by Gen. Taylor) into the town. Quitman carried his brigade directly on the battery first attack ed, and gallantly carried it. Before thia, bow ever, sa we entered the suburbs, the chief engi neer came up and advised ua to withdraw, as the object of, th attack had failed, and if we mo ved on we must meet with grest loss. Th general waa loath to tall hack without consult ing with General Taylor, which h did do Ih general being but a short distance ofC As we were withdrawing, news came lhat Quitman had carried the battery, aud General Butk-r led the Ohio regiment back to the town at a differ ent point. . lo the atreet we became cxpoaed lo a line of batteriea on the opposite side ot a small stream, and also from a ttte sfe ponf (bridge head) which enfiladed us, . Our men fell rapid ly aa we moved up the at rev t to get a poaition to charge the battery across the stream. Com ing to a crua street, the general reconnoitered tbe pvsitinn, and determined to charge from that point, aent me back a abort distance to stop the firing, and advance the regiment with the bayonet. I had just left him, when he was struck in the leg, being on foot, and waa obliged to leave the fieW. ; .

When he was wounded, at the intersection of the two streets, he was exposed to a cross fira of musketry snd grape. Gen.

At last his wound, which had never healed, becoming excessively painful, and Hmta Anna's advance being, it waa belioved.no longer to be dreaded, be solicited snd obtainnl leave of absence, and returned to the Ugtited States, where he has since remained. We un derstand lhat, in consequence ol bia wound, he will be lame for life. Kendall, who haa lately written the general'a biography, closes it with the following description of hia personal appear ance, and this glowing eulogy on his character .- "In person Gen.

Butler, with sll the masculine stre-jjj ih, eon. age, snd reputation to give succef to attempts of thia sort, never evinced the eligit'.eat disposi tion to indulge the power, wbilnt his well-known firmness always forbade such attempt'on him.
