HT In no cusc can the above conditions be departed from. Crittenden on Taylor. In an editorial notice of a speech de livered at a public gathering at Russell ville, Kentucky, on the 22d ult., by that eminent and true-hearted Whig, John J. Crittenden, we have met with a notice of the Whig Candidate for the Presidency, the accuracy of which will be admitted by every man who knows General Taylor: As to General Taylor, Mr. Crittenden said he thought he would give us the right kiud of an administration. The old sol dier had passed through every difficulty safely. He had never said that he would do anything but what, when the timecarae for him to act, he was ready to act up to the emergency. He had to fight against the disadvantage of two or three to one, and he had done it successfully. No one had ever charged him, in his long carecr, with dishonesty. Honor and feme could not intoxicate bim; power could not se duce him. lie was as plain, as unpre tending, and 'rough,' after all his brilliant achievements, as any plain citizen pre sent He was not bedizened with lace.— He was the people's man, and the man of the people. All cotlld recognize him in his old brown coat as old Rough and Ready—as a real republican. If he wanted to paint Kentucky he would set up old Zach, and have him painted as the embodime lit. "Here was a man who could heal the wounds of the country. He looked to him with these hopes, and with all confi dence He knew that the other party was striving to draw the people from him, but it was in vain, for their hearts were with him. When the day of election came, many a Kentuckian would find every oth er feeling overcome but the one détermi nation to do his duty by Old Zach and his country. He believed Gen. Taylor would be elected. He considered that mattir well summed up by the young Kentuckian who went to Philadelphia; who said, on his return, that the people were much split up in regard to candi dates; that old Rough and Ready had a great many friends, but he believed Gen. Taylor would beat him; but he thought one they called 'Old Zach' would beat both I Mr. C. had talked with Getj. Twiggs before he left Washington, and the General told him, in his decided way, with an oath, that no man could look five minutes in Gen. Taylor's face and make a proposition to him to do a mean action. No act of oppression was ever charged upon him ! No man ever paid the penal ty of death by martial law from the time he fought at Fïilo Alto to the time he left Buena Vista. He had controlled and guided the army without bloodshed, main tained its honor and discipline, and retir ed without having done aught to sully the glorious character he had ever maintained as au able as well as humane man. When some deserters were brought to him after the battle of Buena Vista, before the blood they had shed yet sunk into the earth, he looked scornfully at them and said : '•My soldiers do not desert— these are net my soldiers! Take them back to the camp, drum them out, and let them go.' When the government chided bim for not storm ing Monterey with its twelve thousand men, with his five thousand, what was his reply 1 'Yes,' he said, 'he could have ta ken it in that way, but he did not want to sacrifice the women and children.'— When he was feted in New Orleans, a friend, alluding to thfl splendid pageant which wound through the streets of the city, said to him that 'it must have been very gratifying to him.' 'No,' said he. 'it was not. I was afraid some of the wo men and children might be hurt!' Who but he, when thus receiving a triumph like those of Caesar, would have thought of that ? But to his mind that was the most beautiful trait in Gen. Taylor's char acter. It was more characteristic of him than any of the many anecdotes told of him. The people wanted such a man, and they wanted an honest man. That was more necessary than fine talents merely, such as was displayed in public speaking. Elect him, and the people would have a man upon whom they could rely." lien. Cass—His Portrait. Mr. Andrew Stewart, in a recent speech in Congress,thus described Gen.Cass: He always thought Mr. Jefferson was the friend of peace. What was General Cass? For war, war, war! First with England; he was for "fifty-four forty or fight;" then lie was for Mexico; for "swal lowing" (to use his own language) the whole of Mexico; next for Yucatan; and then he might be for Canada. Now, where was the practice of the gentleman over the way, and of their leader, who talked so loudly about Mr. Jefferson's principles? War was a barbarism in this enlightened age and country; it was an absurdity, a crime, and it was so consid ered by Gen. Taylor. But a little more of the history of Gen Cass. Hr had been on all sides of all questions. There was not a question of public policy of the country upon which Gen. Cass had not occupied a posi tion on botb sides. Once a federalist, now a "democrat." When the question of the annexation of Texas first cautne up, he was decidedly opposed to it ; when it was said that the British were going to take Texas, "let them have it," spid he, we do not want it." But a little before the nomination, en the 10th of May, 1844, he wrote a letter to Mr. Hannegan, in which he was for immediate annexation and for slavery too. He was against annexation and for an nexation; against the proviso and for the proviso; against protection and for protec tion; against internal improvements and for internal improvements. With refer ence to the Wilmot Proviso, Gen. Cass was decidedly for it at first; he was a great proviso man; and then at the next session of Congress, when he found it would not not do for a certain section, he turned against the proviso, and in his letter to Mr. Nicholson said, "a change had been going on ia my mind," and when the slaveholders demanded to be allowed to carry their slaves to new territory, he says it will greatly improve the comfort and condition of the slaves if they were scat tered over more territory, and he was now a great slavery man; and the gentleman from Mississippi, (Mr. Featherston) had just said that he was pledged to veto the, Wilmost Proviso. He was once for a protective tariff, but now opposed to all protection. The time was when Cass voted for internal improvements; but he wrote an answer to a letter of invitation to attend the Chicago Convention in his neighborhood—a letter of four lines, stat ing that he could not attend —as at Cleve land, the other day, when âsked for his opinions on internal improvements and the proviso, he said there was such a crowd he was afraid he could not be heard, and spoke on other subjects. Now, the Baltimore Convention declared that in ternal improvements were unconstitution al, and Gen. Cass said, Amen : he agreed to every word in that platform. He was a man who had been on all sides of all questions; a man of no principle, no con sistency, but a time-serving, vascillating, weathercock candidate, and that had se cured his nomination for the Presidency. But he (Mr. S.j thought his party now felt very much as Father Ritchie did—very much like giving it up. Had the Whig candidate ever vacillated, ever changed his position, his principes 1 No. They were laid down in the Allison letter, and were fixed as the everlasting hills, having their foundation in justice and truth— based upon the Constitution of the coun try, and upon popular rights—the emana tion of a sound head and pure heart, it was impossible that they could be wrong, or could change. An Important Accession .—TheMil ton, (N. C.J Chronicle , has the following paragraph ; The Hon. Bedford Brown fur Taylor! We have the very best authority for saying that the Hon. Bedford Browto, formerly a democratic U. S. Senator from this State, and now a citizen of Al bermarle, Va., spurns the idea of support ing Cass for the Presidency, and is a warm and zealous advocate of Gen. Taylor. Reasons for Supporting Cien. Taylor. The sound, unimpeached and undoubt ed character of Gen. Taylor as a national whig, after the Washington standard, in spires the confidence of patriotic and con siderate men in every part of the country. Hear Senator Mangum, of North Caro lina. In his speech in the Senate on the 3d instant, he said : "Sir, I will support Gen. Taylor and support him cordially, as the true repre sentative of all the great conservative characteristics of the whig party. I shall support him as a man of peace—as op posed to all wars of conquest—opposed to the rapacious policy that would pick a quarrel with his neighbor ami then seize his goods. I support him for his sound constitutional views in regard to the rela tive duties of the respective departments of the government. King Veto will not be put in chains, but confined to his proper sphere; he will not be permitted as a ma rauder, to make forays upon every depart ment of the Government and every public and private interest. I support him also because I believe he will suffer the will of the people to become the law of the peo ple within constitutional limits; because 1 believe that things that lie before us in the unknown future, may be of vastly more magnitude than all the transient party questions of the day, and because T have confidence in his moderation and good sense—above all, in his moderation and right-mindedness. If I have learned anything in public life, it is that pure iti= tentions and single mindedness, with a strong and good sense, are worth more than the most splendid abilities and the largest experience without them. It would be sad were it otherwise. He who seeks it with a singleness of mind, will rarely miss it. What care I whether Gen. Taylor cannot play at a game of sophism with expert and dexterous political dialec tions? What I do care to know is, that his views are moderate, conservative na tional—all tending to peace, to whole some and gradual developement and pro gress. Ile who has learned by expe rience the miseries and horrors of war, if hebe a good man, will generally be the most strenuous advocate of peace as long as peace can be preserved with national honor. Who so pacific as Washington ? Who could have curbed the wild passions and preserved peace during the phrenzy of the French revolution but Washing ton? Who so powerful an advocate of peace with the continent of Europe as he who struggled on a hundred battle-fields —Soult 1 Who has done so much to pre serve the peace of Europe as Wellington, the conquerer of Napoleon? And Tay lor, with equal moderation and equal bra very, will act upon the wise maxims of peace. " * Western Elociuence .—The following paragraph, describing the sort of preach ers wanted in the west, is an extract from the speech of the Rev. Mr. Magoon, of Cincinnati, made at the anniversary of the New York Baptist Bible Society : The education soaked in from the out side, like a Thompsonian bath, is useless there. There is no field for such preaeh ers. Blackboard knowledge, and Latin roots, emptiness in the head, green glas ses over the eyes, dyspepsia in the sto mach, and a diploma in his hand, do not suit the people—they want what the Scotch call "gumption"—they want men like Ringgold's flying artillery, who know how to load and fire in the hottest of the fight. There is no » need to wait for a church to call a pastor in the West; he can call his church himself. With a log cabin for a vestry, he can have around him a cathedral whose arches were wreathed and wrought, whose roof was adorned in a way the temples of Greece never knew—the blue sky is visible through its dome, the setting sun streams in betwéen its pillars, and there, in a garb, as simple ns the sublime truths he tells, he can preach the Word of Life; there is no need of fine linen in double quantity, linen under and linen over his garment, he will not want two shirts." A Quandary! —In 1340, the Locofo cos said that General Harrison was a "granny." They are now trying to make the public believe that Gen. Cass was Gen. Harrison's aid ! Misrepresentations are "like young chickens, they still come home to roost." Hon. John W. Crockett , formerly Representative in Congress from Tennes see, and a gentleman whose word for truth will pass as current here as that of any man, thus speaks of Millard Fill more : "We know Millard Fillmore, having served with him for four years in the na tional councils, and we know him to be as free from the taint of abolition as any man in this Union. "From an intimate personal knowledge of the purity of his clwacter, his manner of life, his sympathies with the masses, his lofty patriotism nnd unwavering in tegrity, we express the » pinion without hesitation, and without disparagement to others, that he is the most suitable man that could have been found in the whole Union to place on the ticket with General Taylor." Cheeping Signs for Taylor .—A wri ter who signs himself as "A Domocrat," in tbe Kanawha, (Va.) Republican, says : After travelling through the lower end of Kanawha, and over the county of Put nam, I am glad to tell you that the peo ple are going for Taylor, almost unani mously. I was in a considerable crowd the other day, the most of whom were Democrats, and with the exception of two men, all are going to vote for Taylor.— The people are so warm, they even want tobfîton Virginia, and also to bet Cass won't get five States. \ have always voted the Democratic ticket, but am com pelled to give Old Zach a lilt this time. New Youk for Tayi.or .—The Harald has an estimate based upon the strength of the election of 1847, in which it allows Mr. Van Buren fifteen thousand Whig votes, nnd says that the Whigs will then poll 217,000, which will be a majority over the Hunkers of 75,000, and of 90,000 over the Barnburners. It adds that New York may be set dowo " all right for Taylor." Iowa .—The Charleston Courier, of the 25th, has received a Telegraphic despatch from Baltimore, dated the day previous at 12 o'clock, which states thr f the Whigs have a majority in the Legislatureof Iowa. This will secure us two United States Senators, and is an auspicious index of the vote of the State in November. To the Public. CHEAP GOODS—COME AND BUY!
