TOH VICE PRESIDENT-: Jolm Tyler, OF VIRGINIA. TO OUR PATRONS. Before you is the first number of the long talk ed of -and long expected Jejtersonian Rccptblitan ! The delays, inconveniences, and disappointments, which have met us at every point in our endeavors to give existence to this healthy looking bantling, greatly exceeded our expectations ; hence the rea son why it did not make its appearance sooner. Custom has. rendered it the first duty of an edi tor in establishing a political paper, to give an ex position of his principles, or rather, the princi ples by which he will be governed in the conduct of tho Press under his control. Now, this custom lias its evil as well as good results, for, young edi tors, that is, those who have never entered the thorny path to wretchedness and mental misery, or stood before the public a target for the ar rows of the low, tho vulgar, the designing, the in triguing and desperate members of community, who either as fractional parts of a political cabal t'ie contemners of virtue, morality, and religion t5 haters of truth, and suppressors of liberty of conscience and independence of action, are too frequently led into error by promising too much, or more than they arc able or willing, after a little ex perience in their business, to fulfillthus disap X'ointing their readers, and subjecting themselves to the bitter revilings of their enemies. Having passed the ordeal in another sphere, we presume on our experience to guide us in our government of the Jeffersonian Republican, and shall take care to promise only what we- know wc "are able to per form. We are well aware of the difficulties with which the path of an editor is beset, by the variety of tastes and singularity of opinions existing in com munity, and while we shall ever make it our study to please our readers, and render our paper agree- able to all, by a careful and judicious selection of useful and entertaining reading, in politics, we shall never suffer ourself to be seduced from that course which we deem right, to gratify the whims, caprice, itv. orambitr onyana-r cur or Tnenrrr"-cTrc uuumTl r I,ur"uJc are no man's hireling no party's slave tnind is unshackled, and our thoughts as free as the air we breathe. We are governed alone bv principle, having no motive in view but the public J pocd. To place ourself, however, beyond the ; re jach of advice, or to assume a dictatorial position, : , . . , , . ,r ' . i not our object, e would choose rather to be is advised than advise, indeed, we solicit as an cs pecial favor, the confidence and the counsel of the wise and experienced of our friends. ii.uj..4fc.w, -,,,;, ... . , 3 Vv- r j ' cwuuuujr a.i.icasii.1; muiai auu puiuiwi uil- ; aqy of the day, and asserting the' superiority of , ? , . . . . .. . .

Eighth An honorable opposition to Van Buren First, because we believe him to be aGtuate'd-' by no single desire to- promote the good of his coun try; second, because he has never yet performed any one thing entitling him to the highest .office ia the gift of the people-; third, because hertsfan ' old Federalist' and opposed tho dcmocraticclministra tion of Madison, and while brave merrwere fight-, ing the battles of their country; he&was quarreling with those who, by the cxeicisp of their wisdom, wore endeavoring to sustain her against the enemy : and lastly, had we no other groundfor opposing him, we should consider his elevation to the Presiden cy and a sprvice of one terra in the performance of the honorable, important and arduous duties of that office 'sufficient to gratify' a laudable' am bition,' and consequently, deprecate the motive of his friends in urging him upon the people for a second term. "We shall support General Wii mam II. Harri son of Ohio, for President in 1811, . in opposition to Martin Van Bucen, and John Tyler, of Virginia, in opposition to Richard M. Johnson. In placing the name of the old hero of Tippeca noe and the Thames at theliead of our columns, we feel conscious of honoring a worthy man a man who, if elected Chief Magistrate of the Nation, would serve his country with that singleness of purpose, honest fidelity, and devotedncss to the promotion of the, general good, for which he has ever been distinguished in discharging the duties of tho many high and responsible offices conferred upon him through life. That he has proved him self a brave and"skilfull soldier and a wise and ju dicious statesman, no candid man who has read the history of his country will deny : that he is a thorough democrat, we need only remark to con vince our readers of this fact, that his body bears honorable token of what he has suffered in the' de fence of our republican institutions, made still more dear to him by the knowledge that his own father was one of the immortal signers of the ' Declara tion of Independence,' and pledscd hi3 life, and honor, and fortune, in the maintenance of those grand principles of liberty which gave birth to this great and enlightened nation. We are proud to support such a man, and, to contrast him with the cunning, and intriguing individual, the present incumbent, who crept into the executive chair on the popularity of his predecessor, would seem the best method of obtaining a just appreciation of the decided superiority in every qualification that distinguishes man, in the war worn veteran of the West. In ail matters touching tho interests of this Coun ty, wc shall pursue that. course which may seem to us best calculated to promote the welfare of the people, and will support such men for office as in our judgment arc best qualified, most honest, and most worthy, with an eye to a faithful, judicious, and economical administration of its public affairs. It is a well known truth that public officers need watching, and no man holding a public station if he is conscious of having discharged his duty faithfully and honestly, will shrink from a candid investigation of lus conduct by the press ; and should we at anytime ft Hel ourself oblicraterl tn ns.

C. J. Ingersoll. "Would have been a Tory," and would-be-member of Congress, Ingersoll, has been justly rebuked by his own party at Washing ton. He claimed the seat of Charles Naylor who was elected by a majority of 7 or 800 and even got the Governor to back his pretensions by a pro clamation but he received the go-by at Washing ton. In the organization of the House, it was de clared that ho could not vote ! Such barefaced vil liiny should ever be discountenanced by honest j men, no matter of what party. Ingersoll always was a tory in principle, and is yet. Iowa Citv, the Capitol .of Iowa Ter. is destined at no distant period, to be of some note among the cities of the West.

This taking the law into one's own hand, and inflicting corpo real punishment on editors for the free expression of their opinion, is becoming too common. . In our view, according to tho principle of self preservation, a man is justifiable in defending himself, let the tho consequences bc what thoy may. Important O mssion. We find tho following in the United States Gazette : The President in his recont Message to Con gress entirely omitted the following important passage which we presume arose from1 an error of the clerk in copying it. Tho paragraph omit ted should have followed immediately after the tirade against tho late 13&d; of tho United States ami should have been as follows; "I, however owe it to the cause of truth and justico to slate, that from the organization of tho late National Bank until my illustrious predecessor withdrew from it the public deposits, the Bank, collected disbursed, and transferred more than four hun dred millions of dollars of the public moneys without the loss of one dollar or without char ging the government ono cent for this JiHily crettiryof tho Trcasury c.ari confirm."

Jn htm we behold the proudest excmplmcation of truo greatness, that this or any other country can produce. As a soldier, bravo and skilful as a statesman, wise and efficient as a citizen, above reproach. Educated as a repub lican, beneath the roof and under the eye of a pa rent who gave the most striking illustrations of his patriotism by affixing hi3 signature to the Declara tion of Independence, and pledging his life, and fortune, and honor,; in defence of those great prin ciples of liberty for which heroes bled in the revo lution, he has never failed to manifest the same spirit, and the same devotedness, whenever his country called upon him. And, had ho never worn an epaulet fought a battle, or added a laurel to that wreath of glory which encircles the Ameri can arms, the very fact of his liaving been honored wi'h the confidence of such men as Washington, Jefferson, and Madison, and appointed by them to important and responsible offices, proves conclu sively that they thought him other than an ' old granny, mere is no cnarge oi -lmoeciuty re corded against him m the history ot his country, no. indeed there he is honored; but it remains for the dastardly offspring of coward sires to hail with reproach, the gallant and fearless defender of tho Western frontier. Had these miserable, hollow- hearted, and wretched political hacks one spark of gratitude, or could they look over tho black bar which ignorance and prejudice have placed be fore their eyes, they could see ma'ters in a dif ferent light ; but no, they would rather be blind folded and serve the devil with zeal in" their dark ness, than do honor to him to whom honor-justly belongs. They liye on defamation, and delight in blowing with hot breach the flame which consumes character and reputation. But .wc apprehend lit tle injury, from this class, to the old hero of tho West, fie stands proudly erect before the Ameri can people with a calm and dignified brow, on which wisdom sits enthroned, and with his finger points them to his own and the history of lus coun try, for examination, being willing to abide their decision. Let Ids enemies try him by this testi mony, it will not lie, and we here call upon our readers, upon the whole people of Wayne to- tako this for their guide. We might say to our frirnds abroad that t?io Whigs of Wayne will do their" duty. The nomi nation of Gen. Harrison is well received. Har rison and reform, against Van Buren, his Treasury Bank, and an immense National Debt. This is tho true issue, let it be maintained.

Sub Treasurers. It has been time and again asserted by the Federal Van Buren press, thatho cry raised about the defalcations of Sub-Treasurers, was nothing more than a "gull trap" set by tho Whigs to catch votes and deceive tho peqple: that no honest statementsof the indtfpcndent,prcs3 of the Country, were "lies frae cend to cendS'nnd. should not be believed by democra's. Nouf-, ho nest democrats, and to such we ever audresstfebur- sclf, will take the trouble ot turning to the repoit of the Secretary of the Treasury, they will find on ehou lous Denmark."

This is a truth which none can gainsay, ani, we would ask. does it not afford good grounds fcr distrusting the honest' of .the present General Administration 1 Is it not strong evidence of corruption ? And with it, staring men in the face, nienjwho would feci highly insulted were they charge! with a lack c f patriotism we are at a loss for a ood reason whv they should still adhere to the sinking cause of a corrupt, and profligate party.
