paratory to the great battle to be fought in 1RS4 a war
to the knife, and the knif-i to the hilt, upon the nullifi
cation and secession resolves of 18 It1; suinplaster cur
rency and all paper hanks of circulation; upoa union
and harmony conventions and platforms, gull-traps to
catch Democrats, and all "regular nominees," whether
ebunty, district. State or national. War upon all to the
."That we will support no man for clerk ol either ol
the courts in this county, nor no man for Congress, nor
or any oiner omce, who will not pledge nimseii to tne
support of the measures and principles expressed in
the foregoing resolutions."
These resolutions, declaring war upon the organiza
tion of the Democratic party, and virtually proposing
a dissolution of it, had a preface which closed thus t
The"regular nomination," once potent in all elec
lions, S'it'j and national, h,.j lost forever its magical
power, and become the land 01 weakness, fraud and infamy."
This preface, as w ell as the resolutions, were osten-
laho'.ly pronounced by enemies to nave, been written
by you, and as no authorized contradiction, as far as
we have seen, has been given to the public, the charge
i inciting or countenancing disorganization and tac
tion rests not nione upon you. but also upon ail friends
who voluntarily continued to act with you. In the
roiit.it of this unfortunate state of affairs, certain mem
tiers of tlio Legislature, several ef whom ore charged
by many to bp under your personal influence, formed
common wiiii ina wnigi, and inu placed many a-aie
olfices in the possession of the Wnigs. Soma of the
best Democrat i.i the State were deliberately voted
-down by this unnatural coalition, a.id Whig prelerrcd
The apneni to us from nil nirts of our dis
tricts, and indeed from all purU of the State, to
know whether we approved of this disoreinizinx
conduct, have been numerous, urgent, and often
hoatcd. Our renv has been utiii'ormly, that it
met our decided and m jst ii'icuuivocnl disanpro
bation. .The action, like the corresponding ao-
tion. durin? the election of a United Mates hen
ator in 1851, we considered most indefensibe in
any point of view in which a (rood Democrat oan
view it. We sincerely regret that any Democrat
i'rora any cause, allowed his tWings on either of
those grc:it occasions to betray him into conduct

We consider that it would be politically
wrong to recommend tho President to appoint
any ma,i to any oflice first, who is not honest,
capable aiid faithful to the Constitution. Sec
ond, who is not friendly to the administration,
and who will not labor to make it successful.
Third, who does not heartily believe in the doc
trines of the Baltimore platform, and will not
pledge himself to live up to them, i ourth, who
is not friendly to, and who will not zealously
uphold the organization and usages of the Dem
ocratic party. Not only do we consider that it
would be politically wrong to recommend a man
to a Democratic President, for appointment to
oflice, who does not possess the above various
qualifications ; but wo do not see how any Dem
ocratic administration can ever knowingly ap
point a uisorgamzer to any omco whatever
If, then, the sinister rumors in vogue, were
to be credited ; if onu Interpretation were to be
put upon your speech, etc.; if the course mark-
fid out by tne resolutions meets your approval
and will command your support, it is quite clear
that we should never be able to agree in a con'
We believe in conventions of the Democracy,

if you agree with us in that regard, there will
be, there can be, no difficulty in agreeing as to
men; but u our views do not accord as to meas
ures, it will be impossible to agree as to men.
For we should want and be compelled to in
sist upon appointees who would adhere to the
measures of the administration, and the regular
organization and usages of the Democratic
party of the State, and of the nation, and under
any ciroumstances, could recommend ne oiner
without boing inconsistent with our former and
