Tucsdaj', Jan. 1, 1839, Partv CMANBUNG8.-rEvery party and society whether religious political or so cial, mny expect to find amongst its mem bers, persons who have principles com mensurate with their imaginary or real interests persons' who can "'be nil things with all men,", not for God's sake but for their own men, .ic ",o Ju2u ;c8n be', tray for n.uncy. But this cannot justly be cnargeu on the party; with os much pro priety might the other apostles bo charged with the conduct of Judas Ascariot. A party can only bo blamable for the con duet of its members when it connives fit or encourages thorn in their ' deception. All agree in condemning the conduct of !iim who creates a confidence in order that he may deceive. Dishonesty, whether in religion, in business or in politics, wc hold to be the same, and equally deserves the censure of the good : but, however strange -it may appear, wo have a party who do not condemn it; nay, rwhi honor it. The Whigs, wilh one accord, receive with open arms, every traitor that deserts the cause of the people, as the British did Arnold. This has ever been a striking charactcr stic of that party; our post and present hiBtory afford many, and striking examples of this. ; ' ' The aristocracy, whose interest is not the interest of tho people whose fce lings'and sentiments are not those of th many, but the opposite whoso prosperity consists in tho misery and suffering of the country J who league together for the pur .poje of consuming without pr.oducingftf Jiving without working, and still eager io ; . a tin Hnnr(.a .tt,hrut NiflMllinn .ttArVl BIUAC Ut U'JUvJlD VTitll'-JU ftlll-Jlllllg in-"') conlHvo to divide the people into parties, Hrlninj the j,reridr,n,,vr jx for as psii bio ia each. How often do we find men aristocrats men, whose every sentiment, heart and soul, are embued in Federalism whoso souls never felt tho vivifying and soul-el evating influences of democracy, the real objeet of which is tho amelioration of man kind tho stability of our institutions, and the happiness, ol all, conuesend to court the people, the rabble whom at heart they dispise, and by hypocritical professions of democracy, are raised to office by these deceived people. Thus elevated, they "spurn the base degree by which they did ascend;1' and begin to court the favor only of the few. All the exclusive policy and interest of the aristocracy become their special cilro., . The chartering of banks and all sorts of moneyed combinations and - monopolies, receive their attention, by ' tvhich means they becomo identified with the few. Federalism ceases to be hedious, ' nay, begins to be beautiful. Thny begin then to soften down and receive from their old opponents, praiso for liberality; then half-way approve of the doctrines anApo- licy they before opposed: with changed vision see. or feiirn t see, the faults of! thclr'former partisans: call men illiberal who say thly have changed because they cannot support al! the measures of a party, . and like Senator Talmadge, while throw iug all their influence in the Federal scale, declare themselves "Tjchajcged demo- chats."''!- - ',; ,:' ' Experience teaches that when opposition licsins to abate, and fault is found with both parties, it is then time to suspect and when the federal doctrine is half ap proved, and the republican, creed in part denied, it is then time to cast them to the party they are hastening to which, from principle, they belong to ana wno win not fail to receive them. For the federal aristocracy of the country, no matter what name they were, -or are known by, have never failed to receive, with fraternal so licitudc, all traitors to the cause of, the people, who wcro always pushed forward in the van, against free pinrfplesand po nulai rights.

Principles are ever the same, end change, not, and the true demo crat, who acts in conformity to hi3 prin ciples, is unchanging as they. ' The pumpkin editor (a writer in the Woodville Republican said some time ago, that the editor of tho Liberty Advocate,! judging from the articles published by him in that paper, must bo from the land of pumpkin,) in this place is out on Ihe abo litionists.. This is as it should be; the De mocratic presses through the whole coun try, without a single exception, as far as wo know, are engaged in opposing this fa natical party. But it is placed beyond doubt that tho Whigs aro leaguod with them; therefore, tho Advocate may ex pect the displeasure of its brother Whigs. Wo will soon have a line drawn to separ ate the Whig-abolitionists from tho Whig- anti-abolitionists; between these two un principled parties wo shall see a real fight. It woujefbo a smalt loss if it ended as did tbaVbf the Killkenny cats. ELECTION IN COPIAH , TUB PKOri-E TH1CMPUANT. The issue has been made , In Copiah county, 7 ho federalists made it them selves; it was either a federal president had federal bank tetr, h gnUilelesato alieu and sedition laws, with high tariff, internal improvements, and M.W tho ma chinery hat concentrated capital and par tial legislation can put in operation, to make the many subservient to tho few, or Blartin Van Burcn a democratic presi dent, tho advocate of Southern rights, "a Northern man tcitk Southern feelings" as the "True American," a whig paper, is sued in New York, by way of derision called him, with all the republican mea sures of bis administration, of which a se paration of the monied power from the po litics is not the least. This was the issue and the pcoplo had to decide for them selves, they have, and with that discrimi nation that proves them to be capable of self-government. t By an extra snbjoined, received through from that press, the result can be seen, Gen.tA. G. Brown and J. B. Reid, Esq., have been returned by 'majoritiesnearly as largo as their opponents received votes altogether. ! ' ' Did tho Whigs of Copiah expect that tfie free spirit. of tho voters was subdued by the power of panic; that freemen could be intimidated by their clamor, or dishear tened by gloomy forbodings! . Let their conductanswer! The rebuke they repel ved may serve as a lesson to them and o fhers, who'think that the opinion of the country tho will of freemen can be bow cd by artificial pressure in the money mar ket, or a lasting change wrought by cor rupt politicians, or the horrible hobgoblins of panic makers. That the bankits wero of opinion that the foul exhalations that rose so densely from the fens of federal aristocracy had dimmed the bright "Star1 of Democracy, is evident from the getting up of instructions by them; else why in tho absence of Gen. Brown did they make such efforts. . "Fond impious mon! think ye yon aanguie cloud ' . Raised by your breath, hath quenched tbt orb of day T ' .

Ex amine the lecords of the past, and consult your own reco loctions, and both will tell you that the Whigs denounced them as ir republican, the few dictating to the many, king-caucus, &c. &.. But how does the matter stand nowf they make unsuccess ful effort now to do what they condemned but a short time ago! Oh, Whiggery!! Oh, Consistency!!!
