DEFEKUEU ARTICLES.
. Wnnetw —In the debate with Mr. Hsyne
in 1830, while Mr. Webster wu* contending that
die Constitution was the work of the peo
ple m the aggregate, and not oftho people by
Mate«, he made one aseertion fatal to his whole ar
gument. It was "that tho Constitution was in-'
tended to curtail and control the sovereignty of the
States " This admitted that the States were inde
pendent aovereigns at the lime of the adoption of
the Gonntituliou. If so wlial hut the sovereign ac
tion of the Statoa could establish s rule for com
mon restraint and control! If in the Union there
was but one people, there must bave been but one
sovereignty, and therefore there could nut have
been any State sovereignties to he controlled. But
limits he tells us, were to be imposed on the exer
cise of the sovereign powers of the States. Who
then were competent to impose them! Not the
people in the aggregate—-but the different sover
eign Slates; and unless they agreed to do so, each
exercising for itself its Sovereign discretion in ac
ceding—how could any restraint have been impue
ed — C. E. Pott.
The Ancient Dominion has been troubled with
more than one portent within a few days back. The
venerable old capitol at Williamsburg was acciden
tally burnt during the sitting of tho Supreme Court
The association of this budding with the early and
proud days of Virginia as an independent State, and
also of the stirring scAftes (tf we do tffiV mistake)
which pieceded the Révolution, have rendered its
destruction apparently a source of much and deep
regret throughout the lower country nt leist .
The singular incident of two E .gles who fell to
the ground while engaged in combat, being caught
by a Negro boy and killed, has occasioned «till
more melancholy forebodings, as to difficulties ex
isting and to come; and the manner in which they
are to be terminated.
For ourselves—wo defy the augury. Even were
it "plain and palpable," we would quote the noble
d*ciaiutiun of (lector. But the bald Eagle is no
Emblem of the South. The South seeks
live by pillaging its neighbors' industry.
The version which seems to be the plainest, is
not destruction, but success to the South. It is
that portion of our property which has been peculiar
ly aimed at, und which has been used and |»>in|Dd
out as our distinctive attribute, which figures as the
victor in the contest.
But seriously it is not matter of wonder that such
an occurrence should have been at the moment the
object of remark. Few men, and those not always
the wisest are free from wliut is called "supersti
tion." Mirny who ridicule every thing of the kind
—even who profess scaroely to lielievo in a supreme
being, in their secret soul are very much nnder its
•way. Wo have no intention ofxoccringat the no
lice which has been taken uf the circiimslanoe, al
though the stale of the public mind which could
give to it the interpretation wc hare alluded to, i
intich to tie regretted.
it lino Ix-en said that tlto American cause during
the Revolution was seriously aided among themsa»
of the people of Knglund—•wo do dot mean the
mob—by a belief in the occurrence of one or tw>
ominous incident»—the Royal Standard having
been torn when hoisted on tho accession of Geotg>
the 3d—and the unaccountable loss of one of tin
finest Jewels from the Imperial Crown.

portion of tho flag was blown a considerable dis
tance to the South. Tho matter was spoken «I
next morning in an undertone, und in tho highly
excited state of feelings then existing, seemed ul

How much better off the Canadian colonists are
than the Freemen of the South.
The Quebec DaitUr holds tho following Ian
gunge on the subject of the American System:
Our cintre» on the whole of our imports do not
perhaps aveiage one-sixth of those paid by tho U- °
nited States. Tho effect is felt in (Ire annus) in
of our trade, and inc reasing wealth and cum

We believe that tho rliflies on importations into in

tance of neatly fifteenTiunrlred miles, is the same

inconvenience in this, and are only desirous that
our duties should lie still lower, and it is to he hop
ed that this object will finally he obtained.
In that case Ihete will be u fair trial of tbe old
sv«tem of protecting industry by taxation which
Mr. Clay has adopted, and dignified with the name
of the American system, und tho freo trade system,
which we are happy to he able to agree with Mr.
Clay, isfaat becoming the British colonial byatem.
Mr. Van Buren, in his reply to the letter of con
dolence from his friends in New fork, upon his re
ection by the Senuto, speaking of Gen. Jackson
says "To lrnve terred under such a chief, and to
have won Ms confidence and cretcem is sufficient,
glory," file.
This sentiment of itself affords ample justiflca
ion of the course of tlto Senate, for it demonstrates
that Mr. Van Buren is a very unfit representative a
iroad of a republican Government, In reading this
'••ntrment, we can almost fancy that we are fallen
back to the time of the Cnesars, or translated to an
Kitstern despotism, and listening to the fawning flat
tery of a servent of the palace. That, at this age
->f general enlightenment,» prominent agent of the
sovereign people of this country, should have de
scended to such uuseenting man-worship, is a depth
<>f degradation that could not havo been anticipated
from the most grovelling sycophant. If, however,
Mr. Van Buren he satisfied with the service of thu
masters the constitution has provided him, nnd look
elsewhere for support and reward, let him take the
consequences of his choice, and seek wages from
lie public. If the confidence nnd esteem of Gen.
.luekson be sufficient glory, the confidence and es
teem of the people cannot bo properly demanded.
—The affected phrase bv which Gen. Jackson i«da
-cribed as the Chief sounds harshly on the ear, as
ioo closely connected with military domination.
Mr Marcy, the manager of Mr. Van Buren in tlie
Senate, has openly avowed the principle that oflieos
belong lo the successful party as the 'spoils' of vic
tory; and Mr. Van Buren, in tins passage, upon the
same principle, seems to consider the Presidency
regular conquest of a chief who may lairly de
cide its rewards among its vnrsals. Not only in
this phrase, but in the administration of the Gov
ernment generally, tho Presidency appears to be re
garded, not so much an agency for the public good,

PREAMBLE AND RESOLUTIONS.
Whereas much excitement has prevailed in ma
ny ports of this state in regard to the course pur
sued by our Senator, the honorable Gen. Poindex
ter, anil whereas wo believe that he has been un
justly censured for his vote on the nomination of
Martin Vau Buren, aa minister to Great Britain, and
as we believe it to he tho duty of tho constituent
to support Ins representative in the correct and con
scientious discharge of his duties, by expressions of
approprobation, whenever he maybe unjustly «r
sailed.
1 st. it is therefore resolved that we highly sp.
p.ovo of the general course of conduct pursued by
tho honorable George Poindexter, in the Sonate of
the United States, as ono of the representatives of
tho State of Mississippi, on all subjects affecting tint
interests of his constituents.
2 d. Resolved that the vote of Mr. Poindexter on
tlto nomination of Martin Van Boren as ministre'
to Great Britain particularly deserve* the approba
tion of his constituents.
3. Resolved that George Poindexter, our reprov
acutative has in our opinion in nil public and no-
tionul measures Eustuincd tho Administration of

4th. Resolved that vve cannot conscientiously
support Martin Van Buren for tho offico of Vrca
President of the United Btutcs.
Gth Resolved that it is the opinion of this Meet

wo consider it highly important that appropnato
