At drvers times and on repealed occa

Bouncing to you my purpose, was to allow

us, without acknowledging In a more formal

acquaintaace with the Stale brgnn in 1839,
afler the defeat of the Democratic party in
I&tt. Since then, we have had three
Presidential elections, and five general
State elections; in all of which, I have ta
ken an active, if not an efficient part.
These elections have excited and engross
ed the public mind the most momentous
questions have been discussed and decided,
and in the retrospect, it is the proudest
memorial of my life, that duiing this long
period, amidst these .stirring agitations, in
despite of the most malignant attacks on
all sides, you have so generously and decis
ively rallied to the support of the stsodard
which my parly friends had placed in my
hands; thus enabling me to bear it aloft in
triumph over all opposition. -
The reasons which prompt me to with
draw from another canvass, are personal
snd private, and I deem it unnecessary and
unbecoming to give them at length. I feel
assured that I may without hesitancy,
throw mylf upon the kind indulgence of
those friends whoe unshaken confidence 1
bave so long cijoyed, for a release from
ihe important and honorable post of duty

honor. But would it not be better, as your

is not another station which our warrior
