The Democracy ol C'ongrcss.
The election o( Mr. Tucker as printer to the
United Stales Senate over General Armstrong,
has been hailed by the Whigs as an initiatory
step toward crushing the influence and popular
ity of lbs administration. We sincerely regret
that the proprietor of the Washington Union,
that noble old patriarch in the Democratic par
ty, whose principles have always been consist
ent and orthodox from his youth to the present
day, und whose paper has been sedulously devo
ted to the support of the administration, was
selected as a maik by some distinguished mem
bers of the party of their disapprobation.
The Union is confident that most of Demo
cratic Senators who did not vote lor Armstrong
entertain no feelings of hostility to the admin
istration of Gen. Pierce. We h pe results will
bear out this opinion. The Pennsylvauian in
speaking of this subject remarks that the Dem
ocratic representatives in both branches of Con
gress, cannot misunderstand the lone and tem
per of the American people. It is no doubtful
or Delphic sentiment that stirs the deep bosom
of the masses. It is a fixed and positive ele
ment. Except in the State of New York, where
early differences have deepened into the most
rancorous animosities, there is an active princi
ple at work, which cannot be misinterpreted.
And that principle is abiding confidence in tiif.
ADMINISTRATION OF PRESIDENT Pi EKCE.
The aunual Message of the President is an
avowal of his policy in reference to the great
nueslions of the day, Wherever candidly read
und reviewed, it has been thoroughly approved.
The attempt to evade the discussion of these
questions in Congress cannot succeed. The
people are the parties most directly interested,
and they will demand action at the hands of
their representatives. The President has per
formed his duty manfully and boldly. Let Con
gres proceed to do theirs. He has laid before
the country a history of the past and am pro
gramme of the futnre ; and he has spoken with
manful courage and emphasis, the views of a
patriot on great and exciting issues. An intel
ligent and unsleeping scrutiny has been aroused
among the masses to see how his views will be
seconded in the National Legislature.
The Democratic members in both branches
must, of necessity, take the lead. The Whigs
will stand by eagerly watching the chances. If
the Democrats can be kept quarrelling over the
New York quarrels, or over the public printing,
or ever any mere personal matter, it is so much
dead gain to the Whigs. Once unite the Dem
ocrats upon great mesurps once bring them to a
discussion of the p.inciples of the Message and
the Whigs subside into silence 'tod hopeless
minority. It is only when the great party of the
country forgets or overlooks its high obligations,
that the party of factions can hope tut advan
tage. We know that the great and controlling ma
jority of the Democracy in Congress is as eer
united and true. We know that those who
compose this majority are resolved to stand by
the President. We know, also, that those who
may have felt differently are being rapidly recall
ed to their duty by the eager avidity with which
the Whigs and Abolitionists unite with all
Democrats who are ready to strike at a Demo
cratic administration. This last fact, para
mount and s artling as it is, ha6 proved a usefull
admonition;to"those who might have believed'that
opposition to the Democratic party had lost its
vitality. No matter what motives may actuate
Democrats who are temporarily thrown into as
sociation with Whigs and Abolitionists, the fact
that these latter parties are lying in wait for alj
opportunities to destroy the Administration,
should induce the Democracy to forget all divi
sions, and to consolidate it into a hearty and
resistlest party in the Future. It is quite cer
tain that when Democrats are candidates before
the people, they must depend upon Democrats
for votes, and not upon Whigs and Abolitionists-There
are a thousand reasons why these sug
gestions should weigh strongly with our polit
ical friends in Congress. Why should they be
divided when the people, the Democratic masses
are united ? Wh) should dissensions be carried
into the Capitol which are now confined to a
single State? Why should great questions be
perilled and postponed to gratify Whig hopes by
disputes over personal disappointments?
No Democrat in Congress can justify to his
constituents a factious opposition to the admin
istration of President Pierce or his Cabinet The
people are too intalligent to be caught by soph
istry ; and the people will demand that the Pres
ident and his Cabinet, ani his policy, shall have
a fair trial. The justice wjtedricoubj Bot be denied
to a Whig President before the first Congress of
his Administration, cannot be withheld from an
honest and couscientious Executive like Frank
lin PiekcE. Let the representatives of the De
mocracy in Congress look to it. It is well that
they should pause and ponder on these facts be
fore they rush into extremes which they may re
gret all the remainder of their lives.
In the Senate on the 19th ins. Mr. Clay pre
sented the credentials of Hon. Benjamin Pitzpat

bama to fill the unexpired term of the Hon. W .
R. King, resigned and Mr. F. appeared, was
qualified and took his seat. Mr. Norris deliver-

In the House, Don Jose Manuel Gallegos, Del.
egate from New Mexico, was sworn in and took
his seat. On motion of Mr. Murray, 300.000
copies of the proceedings of the house regarding
the death of Vice President King, were ordered
to be printed. On motion of Mr. Disney, the
Committee on Public Lands were authorised to
employ a clerk during this session of Congress.
A message from the Senate announcing the
death of Charles Gordon Atherton, late Senator
from New Hampshire, was received and eulogies
were delivered by Messrs. Hibbard and Orr. A
resolution on the subject was passed unanimous
ly ; after which, as a further mark of respect to
the deceased Senator, the house adjourned.
For Ike Yazoo Democrat.
Richland, Holmes co., Miss., Dec. 20, 1653.
Mr. Editor : Through the medium of your
paper, I beg leave to call the attention of the di
rectors of the Plank Road, between Benton and
your place, to the present, and daily increasing
difficulties the planters labor under who send nc"
gro drivers with their teams to Yazoo City.
The road, I am told, is now pacing well, and the
planters regard it as quite a convenience and ar
willing to be taxed for its use, but in return they
surely have a right to expect that their interest
will be protected, so far at least, as to prevent
the white teamsters from monopolizing, in bad
weather, and when there are many learns on the
road, all its benefits.
Nothing is more common than for a white
is just. The President may well be satisfied with
such testimonials of approbation. Notwith
standing the recent little attempt at opposition
in New York, we now predict that the present
administration will be sustained w ith as much
unanimity as any previous one, and that, when
it retires, it will he with a popularity equal to
that of Mr. Polk's administration, which was
undoubtedly as able as any administration the
country has had w ithin the last thirty years.
F. P. Stanton, of Tennessee.
mac, with an empty wagon, to order a negro,
with a heavy load of cotton, to give him the
road, and enforce obedience at the risk of severe
punishment. Again the white teamster; suffer
their teams to stand for hour in the streets, di"
rectly in the way, wholly disregarding the re
quests of negroes in charge of teams to make
Way for them to pass.
The read is a mutual benefit to both the mer.
cantile and planting interests but it being under
the control of the former, it is but reasonable
that the interest of the latter should be protect
ed against flagrant abuse.
In short, a negro driver stands but little chance
on the plank road, in bad weather, when it so
happens that he comes in contact with a vicious
and unprincipled white man. Could not the
directors make soma arrangement, whereby this
growing evil would be checked ?
Our Whig neighbor has "wailed for the wag
on," the wagon has arrived, and he is pleased
with the assortment of political wares it brings.
We venture to suggest that he has given but a
saperficial examination to the load, and has
looked at it through a Whig "glass, darkly."
The variegated combination against the admin
istration, owe it to the public intelligence, to be
consistent with each other in their appraise
ment and classification of these political goods.
But they blow hot and cold, as we shall show,
and stick together in but one thing, and that is
hostility to the Democratic administration.
We admit that our cotemporary ought to bo a
good judge of political "defeats," generally, from
a long party experience in that line. But he
halloos this "administration defeat" long before
he is out of the w oods. The battle has but just
begun, and we can assure him that we feel strong
enough in the Catholic principles of the Demo
cratic faith, to enjoy a serene confidence that the
Democratic party will make a stand up fight
and "whip out" its ringed, streaked and speck
led opposition of Whigs, sore head Democrats
Now let us see how the assumptions of the
opposition dovetail with each other, The N.
Y. Herald, the leader of the new "National
Democratic organization," and tbe Whig Adver
tiser announce the success of Tucker as a rebuke
and defeat of the administration. If it is a
defeat of the administration in this connection
it is a triumph of a "new National Democratic"
parly. Where's the Advertiser's comfort in that?
It this be all gammon, and the Advertiser has
real cause of Whig congratulation- why theu
the Herald and the " Hards" ore traitorously
playing into Whig hands.
Again ;we are told that the Herald and Tuck
er combination is 'the re-organization of a great
national party upon the principles of the Com
promise measures" anc yet in this combination,
we find the names of Muson, Hunter and Atch
ison, three rampant fire-eating enemies of the
Compromise ; and of Seward, Chase and Sum
ner, three bloody abolition enemies of the same
measure. That theory won't hold water, cer
Next comes Mr. Tucker himself, and tells us
that the election of printer had nothing in the
world to do with opposition to the administra
tion that it was a mere question of preference
between the proprietors of two Democratic pa
pepers ; and he proceeds to ridicule and curry
down, in the most unmerciful style, for the ar
rogant presumption that the test of fidelity to
Democracy and the administration, consisted in
voting the Union the Senate printing. Here,
then, we have all sorts of doctors and nj sort of
agreement betwixt them. We have fire eaters,
compromise Democrats, Whigs and Abolition
ists, uniting in a vote for a printer, and each
party giving a different reason for it; and each
crowing over it as a triumph of Pis ism. Oar
neighbor is not "backward in coming forward"'
to claim its Whig share of victory in this battle
of the mice. We repeal "wail for the wagon,"
and see if both Congress and the country do not
stand by the President in support of the great
Republican doctrines which he has sprcid for
his chart on the scroll of the National archives.
If they do this, the administration is not defeated
no matter who may enjoy the honor and profit
of setting the type for Senatorial documents.
that there exists the nucleus of an organized op
position to the administration, we fully admit,
and the Advertiser does not rejoice at it more
than we do. Opposition parties are essential
elements in our Republican system of Govern
ment. We should be lost without. Tiie Whig
The Slavery Agitation.
The American people have perused with sat"
isfaction the language in which their President
has again assured them that during his term of
office no renewed " shock" to the public peace
shall be su fie red by his permission. At the same
time, those of them who have carefully noted
the signs of the times, and are competent to per
ceive and unbiased enough to admi t the presa
ges of the future, may be excused from allowing
their apprehensions to subside into confidence.
To the patriot who had recognized in the suc
cessful result ot the last presidential contest a
guarantee against further agitation, the language
of the authorized organ of the administration
lias brought anxiety. The preference manifes
ted for the counsels and countenance of leading
lree-soilers had perhaps seemed excusable. The
course of conduct pursued might have been in
fulfilment of air adroit line of policy, by which
opposition to democratic principles might be
changed into a support. But when the various
State elections being decided, and Congress upon
the verge of meeting the signal of absolute dis
approval and denunciation of the compromise
measures was given through the organ, the crajty
plot stood revealed. New aliment was given to
the traitors of the North. The power which
they wield in the federal cabinet was disclosed ;
and in view of the encouragement thus official
ly bestowed upon them, the conntry cannot
look without fear upon the future, and cannot
avoid distrusting the power of the President,
environed with tne embarrassments into which
he has been led to withstand them. Albany
We quote the foregoing from the Albany Ar
gus for the purpose f exposing the injustice
done to us in those points indicated by italics.
We scorn the insinuation that our tone or lan
guage has been different since the elections lrom
what it was previous. But we are amazed that
any editor should have the unscrupulous effront
ery to charge us with giving the signal of abso
lute disapproval and denunciation of the compro
mise measures. The charge evinces a reckless
ness in ?he work of misrepresentation which is
indicative of absolute madness. We have main
tained one uniform, straightforward course in
regard to the CompiOmise-, and that course is
based upon an unalterable determination to
stand by the Compromise as the basis of the cov
enant on which our party united at I?iltinlore
and triumphed in the election of General Pie.'ce.
Every allegation which imputes to us hostility f lic gPOtl. Our ranks were uncon
to the Compromise, or even flRifference as to its edno ejow rtffhto turn in, i
laitmui execution in an its parts, or a willing
ness to depart in the slightest degree from the
Baltimore platform, is 60 utterly unfounded that
we will be excused for repelling it as false, and
appealing to our whole course in the Union for
0ur justification . Washington Union.
CO" The Abolitionists denounce the Presi
dent's message in the most vehement manner.
The Whigs cavil and undertake to pick iaws in
it, but find very little to condemn with any show
of reason The leading Whig paper of the
Union the Intelligencer speaks favorably of
most parts of tbe message, hut cannot praise it
all, as that would be too liberal, and might
cause that paper to lose its character of party
Mentor. On the other hand, we have never
known a message receive more general and hear
ty commendation from the Democracy, East and
West, North and South. As far as we have re
ceived our exchanges, which have had time to
comment upon it, the approval is as hearty as it
party had become so essentially used up, that it
had not vitality enough left to constitute a re
spectable opposition. Under the Nessus shirts
of Scott and Seward and its effete principles
which had been long spewed with disgust from
the mouth of the American people, it had sunk
so low in power, that its opposition was not a
pebble in the track of the advancing chariot of
the victorious Democracy. It had become as
weak as the Taunton water, that could not run
down hill, and there was immense danger that
the high mettled Democracy, with not even a
pigmy ol Whiggery to pull on its bit, would
run away and "break things" in the very abandon
of liberty and the licentiousness of unbridled
power. In this state of things, the Democracy
took pity on the Whigs. They had before shown
themselves incapable of government, and they
now proved themselves incapable of opposition
They had to barrow help to oppose, from the
Democrats; and the "Hards' went to the rescue
of the drowning concern, as it was bawling,
"Help me, Cassius. or I sink." We cay we are
glad of it, patriotically glad of it, parly -cally
and glad of it for the sake of our unfortunate
Whig friends. The Democratic party was grown
too Irge and ponderous for its own or the pub-
no sea room to
work ship in. We th?reiore cordially present
to the Advertiser and its Whig friends the whole
"Hard" Democratic family, and wish them joy
of their X mas gift. With them we hope they
will be able to make a respectable show of op
position to keep in check the great Mastodon
Democracy of the United States.
We Democrats can govern this great country
elegantly, for practice made us-perfect. All we
want is a respectable Whig minority tu act as a
balance wheel and keep us straight. Until the
"Hards" turned up Whiggery was grown too fee
ble even for this dry nurse duty. Now, "we
breathe freer and deeper.'" Mobile Register.
If sensuality be our only happiness we ought
to envy the brutes; for instinct is a surer, shorter
guide to such happiness than reason. Colton,
William Rusbton, of the well known firm of
Rushton, Clark & Co.. wplesale and retail drug
gists in New York, died in that city on the 12th.
With qualities more showy than substantial
withgodtt electioneering tact a vast deal of
brass and a flippant tongue this gentleman has
managed thus long to ride upon the crest of the
popular wave. And though lie has been success
ful in his political aspirations, strange as it may
appear, he has never yet had the full confidence
of the party to which he has professed to belong.
It is rare that a man in public life, though he may
be unpopular with the generality of his party
does not so manage as to obtain a hold on the
confidence of a sufficient number to div ide and
injure it in the event its favors are withdrawn
from him. We suppose it. must be owing to
some such cause as this, that Stanton has been
enabled to foist himself on the Democratic party
in "the Memphis District, after affording irrefrag
ible proof of his unworthiness. We know that
for the last four years his course has been such
as to meet the unqualified disapproval of many
of the most sterliug Democratic voters in West
Tennessee. Many have been in the habit of
voting for him with the same emotions they
would experience in taking a dose of physic
knowing a poriion of its ingredients to be pot
sonous. Some have stood aloof from him al
together ; but their defection has been more than
made up by Whig votes. It is a Whig practice
to enc mrage Democratic traitors in preference
to men of their own on the ground that a traitor
in the Democratic ranks would do them more
ssrvice than an open adversary who fights boldly
under his own colors. On this principle, Stan
ton, at the late election, received the voles of
many Whigs against Yerger, a true Whig, and a
man of talents and undoubted personal w orth.
On the same principle, ihe Whig Senat. rs in
Congress a few days since voted almost unani
mously for the proprietor of the Senatinel news
paper for printer to tha;body,in preference to the
old National Intelligencer, which has fought for
Whig doctrines at the (capitol of the nation for
half a century. The Sentinel professing to be a
democratic print, had in that chararter. furnish
ed "aid and comfort" to tbe opposers of the Ad
ministration, and Whigs sustained tin piratical
craft in preference to the old wejther-beaten,
faithful Intelligencer with the Whig colors al
ways flying at its mast-lad.
In return for the favors revived b- him ot th
hands of the Whigs and to vindicate efficiency
of their tactics in preferring him to one of their
own number, Stanton (as our readers are aware)
threw a fire-brand into the .Democratic party in
the caucus of the Democratic members, which
was held on th: eve of the meeting of Congre??.
A tool was wanted to do the work of the. ene
mies of the Democratic organization and who
more appropriate than F. P. Stanton, w ho had
more than once prostituted himself to the uses
of Federalism ? Cordially despising such p lil
ical traders and gravelling demagogues, we are
more than rejoiced to see that such influential
Democratic papers as the Richm ond Enquirer.
Nashville Union, and Nitcluz Free Trader,
have opened their batteries upon him. A party
which makes terms with disorganizes oi;d faith
less politician?, will sooner or later repent its
conduct. The. best way is to make direct war
upon them classing them with the opposition
and forcing them to sail under the colors of
those whom they terve. Sianton has cajoled
and bullied (by turns) the D -uiocracy of the Dis
trict he repesen'f, long enough-; and wr hope his
recent conduct will convince them that it is bet
ter to crush the head of the serpen! than to warm
it into life.
The Free Ti a ler. referring to Mr. Stanton
covert assault on the Administration on the im
plied charge of its violati m of tite doctrine or
Stale Rights, pertinently asks. "How long has
il been since he became a State Right- nun 7
About three years, ago he was ardent in the n lvo
cacy of what was then called the Ebony Line, a
scheme for the establishment by l!i a Federal
Goverment of a line of steamers lo remove the
free negro population of the United States to Af
rica! Mr. Stanton thought this was necessary
for the proper execution of the Fugitive Slave
Law ! Hence this strict construction State
Rights Democrat deduced the power, on the doc
trine of necessity general welfare by another
name. In the course of his argument in favor
of the Ebony Line, Mr. Stanton, now so sensi
tive a State Rights man, took the ground thai
the federal government had the right to overthrow
a sovereign Stale of this Union in the execution
of acts of Congress! We have his speech a I
this moment before us. And now he is a bet
ter State Rights man than Franklin Pierce, or
Jefferson Duvis ! Let him be cautious ; the past
will rise up in fearful judgment against him."
