think, by Vi.ry unfair means, liut
there arc other and higher cou.ddeia

or party feelings by which men ought
to be guvenud in public matters.
Every thing oughi to be done which
can be domy not only to have the
frovernmeiil admi Llred upon correct
prii.cples, but to bring everyih.ng
c uieeted wish public atliiirs to as
high a slate of purity as po-sible.
W e are of those who b li ve that a
very happy influence Would be p o
ducod, not only upon the p litu s, nut
upon the morals o. tiio cujuwy by the
adoption of the one teiin principle,
and we wonld not confine it to the
office of President; we think that no
man who holds office undc; one ad
ministration ought to be eligible un
der its successor. These opinions we
aunounc d very shortly aher we com
menced the publication of ihis paper,
and we then gave the reasons upon
which they are. founded. Thitt is the
chief reas-ju which op. rates upon us
iu procuring a p ef.rence fur Mr.
Calhoun over Mr. Van Bureu. It i--u
ue, that if a man in .cilice who had
admiuisterd the government upon
correct principles, and we believed
would continue to dos , were opp. sed
bv One who we bdieved wo.ilil ml.
minister it diflerenily, or. if we thought
he were the only n an from whom a
proper administration of the goyein

beat his onpontnt,- we 'should feel
utai ma .'jjwin jii j- i3 anoillll icei
bound to forego this objection for the
. . . . J
purpose ol avoiding Hie greater evil.
If, therefore, Mr. Van liuren shall
by nomination or otherwise, be the
fonly competitor of Mr. Clay or any
o hor, piofes-'iuir his p iiiciples, we

good President; indeed there are per
haps very ma iy inen, who would not
under any cncum-tai.cv, voie ior a
in in f.r a steond term of office To
attempt to require such to depart
from this course unnccessai ily will
weaken t ic s feng'.h of the candidate
for whose elevation the attempt may
ue made.
These considerations should ope
mi, ue rtv.s.ais with ihe parly, why
Mr. Van Buren should not be. put in
nominationr. They are icasons in
which the interests of the eoun ry is
directly involved. It is tni", tr.ai the
objection dose not lie in all its force
againr-t Mr. Van Buren, because' he is
not now i i office, and dose not and
cannot wield the pi.trounge of the
.'overnment. but there Is no strong
ie ison growing out ol or toniicctca
with the. pu' lie good which rend, rs it
mce-sary tor him to be Pieddnt
rather than several oiheis, and there
is no use in encountering difficulty,
for difficulty it is and will increase
- But aside fr m this there are many
nasens which ui ikc "his nomination
impoli e .
Amoi g these consider ition" is the
prejudiie exisiing against him iu the
idncLs of iiumv of the Southern peo
ple, in iel.itii. rt to slavery., Upon this J
subject, we have perfect confidence
in him. He has not only by his dec
larations, but by I is ..ess Siiown, tnat
under his iidonni tialioii, the ro.i.h
would have nothit g to fear, never
theless, such lasbejii the indu.-try
with which' these prejudher have
bren fostered,, and to unscrupulous
tho means' ri .-oi tid to for that pur
po e, that hi many cases, it will be
ifficult, poilv'ps impossible to over
Oiiie them.
A: o her considera'ion against the
n mination of Mr. Van Buruv. is to
be iound in the invctera e pnjudices
which exi-t against him as a man. '
There never tins been in the country,
a man more vialently and B'utcily as
sailed; do man who lias been more
slanderd, nor whos.: char cler has
i con more wantonly as.-ailedby every
kind of falsehood, the tesult h s been
that uppon the mind's of very many
honest nfceiiy the conviction has been
produc d, that he is on : of the most
disho est and corrupt men that the
world ever taw; indeed so strangly
have these prejudices been excited,
that they have in many cases assumed
the character of person A hatreds and
akhough the conviction has b- en for
ced upon them, that the principles
which he then professed, and now
profit s-es. aie correct, insomuch, that
r - . '.
they would support them in the per-.
son ot almost any ottior, yet many oi
th m would, if he were I he candedate,
sacrifice their regard ffo'r the princi
ples to the gratification of their ha
tred for" the man. It may be . said
that such men w ill act very improp
erly; that is wry true, and we have
ho dou'if time will convince thcinjof
their error, but while' thosj prejudi
ces cxit in such strenslh, it would
not only be an'', unwise party move
ment, but it would b: injustice to our
priiieiples to bring them into unnec
essary cotiiH t with known prejudices

mentioned the other day that General
Ca s had signified his intention 1 1 be
ing a candidate for the next Presi
dency. The citizen? of Michigan ad
dressed brm on the subject, and the
following is that porikm of his reply
which goes to inoicate h'ia policial
opinions. It will be seen that he is
opposed to -a national hank; that he
is in lavof ot a law tarui lor rcvenuo.
and to afford ."incidcmal pro'cctimi"
to manufacture;: hat the objects to it
distribution of the public lands, &c,
'Ihese views are well enough, ami1
believing as we do in General Cuss'
abi'ities as a statesman and a warrior,'
we shall feel proud to give hini our
support,' ware -he nominated by n
1 )' moeratic , National Convention.
The following are his opinions:
! do not "think that a Nation.il
Bank should be incorporated in any
f-.nn or under any pretancc by the
General Governino'tt. Firs', b'ec.iibe
I have n'vcr seen in the Constitution
of the I niud States a sufficient grant'
of po wer .r such a purpose; and scc
ond, hi cause public opinion lias p ro
manced i self, aud Liliink ju.-tly, a.
gainst any such institution. An at'
t.-mpt to incorporate a National L'ank
ought to he met by, the Preside nii;d
veio, sh. uld that inc isure be necess
ary to deleat it.
"2J 1 think it is the duty of thu j
general government to reduce its ex
penses to the lowist amount, const
antly with a faiihful discharge of its
consti tutioiial du ieff. ,In the prepcr-.
at ion of a judicious TarrnT to raise
this amount, it is also it's duty loaf
ford incileiital protection to those
branches of American industry which
require it. An economicel expendi
ture, a tarnU preduemg enowgli wun,
the sales of tUe public land, to meet
thisjexpenditiire, and so devided a
motiff the variousariicles of importa
tion,' as to protcd our own maaitfac- .
tuiers by reasonable duties; and with
in these limits, a practical application
of the' just principles of fiee trade to
our foreign commcn e, seem to trie l
comprehend the pullind of the dutlc?
of the government ol tho United
States upon tlnse difficult' topics. If
to this be added a-si near desire t.
reconcile, as far as MY ey be, locally
ron hVctin!?' views bv mutual conces
sions of opinions, and. to adopt asystmi
which shall have stability enougn
enahle the great inter, sts of the cotm
try to accommodate th' mselvs to it I
thmk the object which has been w
long sought, will be as nearly attain
ed as the circumstances of the count
ry will permit. .
'3. The public lands should, iu my
opinion, be appropriated to the suport
of the g,over..ment of the United
States, and- not distributed among the
individual States; i
" 4.1 think it is the .duty of every
member of Ihe Democratic prty,
whom the . partiality of his friend,
may designate as a proper, person toj
