"LABORS OF THE OPPOSITION IN TEN-
It seems Mr. Clay has sent his deputy, Senator
Porter, to Nashville,to take a sort ofpedispassessio of
the State, upon the faith of the bargain with Bell,
White, & Co. Mr. Port:r.S erta.'-''7 c-
-- t ,urn t'te hearts of the people of
Tennessee.against the old Chief, and to aid Bell
and his faction in giving Clay a foothold in the
State. A man of bolder irfTpudence certainly nev-
e r thrust himself into Tennessee since the days of
Patftck Darby. He came from Ireland, studied
law in Nashville, went down the river in "a flat
boat," and "gentlemen, (says he,) I am now here
after the expiration of twenty-six years, with bet-
ieredfortune, which Iowa to myself, and occupying
aproudposition, which I do not owe lo myself," &c.
And what doc.s" Paddy Porter come fior, after his
twenty-six years of absenteeism? He tell them-he
scorns to remember dear old Ireland, but, after
speaking of the confiding kindness of the people
of Louisiana, among whom he lives, goes on thus:
"It is. said, gentlemen, by Addison, in one of
those delighttul essays in the Spectator, (a work
which must ever hold its plhce in the human mind
so long as purity of thought and diction has any
charm for it) that one of the most affecting situa-
tirons in which a human being can be placed, is a
mans return to the place of his nativity, after a
long lapse of years, with an improved fortune and
an approving conscience. Gentlemen, I feel at
!"this moment all which the imagination of that wri-
ter conceived. ], have ever considered Nashville
as my second home. In nautical phrase, '1 have
ever hailedfrom it,' and I am proud that my place
of departure, is sanctioned by you."
Ajd why does this son of Green Erin choose to
forget 'the land of his birth, and hail from Nashville
as If the place of his nativity? His speech explains.
His business was to assail the son of the Emerald
Isle, who has nobly, throughout his life, maintain-
ed the cause of freedom, the failure of which in
Ireland had driven his parents to seek it on this
side the Atlantic. Mr. Porter's visit to claim Nash-
ville as the place of "-his departure," and from
which "he always hailed," was to join the enemies
of the. President in that quarter, and under' the
guise of "nativity" and citizenship, assert the privi-
1]ege" of calling him to aoeount for his mal-adminis-
The first attack he makes on the President is
in regard to the nomination of Mr. Van Buren,
and his renomination of Mr. Stevenson as his suc-

MAKING. POLITICAL HEAVS OUT OY
In an article hiour last, we ventured Aie ex--,
pression of air opinion as to what we conceived to
be the true reasons wiry Judge White and some
ot'hers of his whig friends were found at-present
occupying posi;ioris so strikingly different -from
those which in former days, it was their pride oLhd
boast to maintain.
If we will look around among the politicians of
the country, we shall observe, that ever since
Judge White was 11 brouzlit out" for the Presi-
dency, and un attempt made to organize a dis-
tinct White party, many politiciaiis have been
found gradually to withdr.tw from their old asso-
ciations where exparience had taught them pro.
motion was not to be found, and dedicate their
whole energies to the building up of 'a new fac-
tion, in whose success they foridly promised them-
selves the gratification of their restiess -ambition
and the realization of their long cherished hopes.

By the ordinance of 1787, the whole country
northwest of the Ohio is divided into three States
running from the Ohio river on the south to th'
great chain of lakes on the north. Each ofthese
states was to be entitled to admission into thi
Union, whenever it should have sixty thousand in
habitants, or sooner, if circumstances would allow
The right, however, to come into the Union upon
having that number of inhabitants, was a veste
right, of which they could not justly be deprived
These three States, now known by the names o
Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, covered the whol
country, including the present Territories of M
chigan atnd Wisconsin. Had there been no othe
provisions in the ordinance in regard to a sub-d
vision of States, or no further legislation by Con
gress in reference to such divisions, we should
have been spared the present difficulty. Ohi
and Indiana would now cover the whole of Michl
gan; whilst Indiana and liinois would possess th
entire territory of Wisconsin.
But the ordinance provided further, tha

cept the constitution formed by their convention.
Such has been the construction and practice in all
the country north of the Ohio; and as the last cen-
sus shows that there are but. a few hundreds of
aliens in Michigan, it would be hard to set aside
their constitution, because some of these may have
participated in its formation. It would be unjust
to do so, if we had the power; but we have
no authority to do it; for if we regard the
ordinance as of any validity, it allows all "free
inhabitants" to vote in framing the State govern-
ments, which are to he created within the sphere
of its influence. We will now turn to the remain-
ing point in this objection, and we shall see that
it has no more force in it than the other.
The constitution allows all white male citizens
over twenty-one years of age, having resided six
months in Michigan, to vote at all elections; and
every white male inhabitant residing in the State
at the time of signing the constitution is allowed
the same privilege. These provisions undoubtedly
confer on aliens the right of suffrage; and it is con-
tended that they are in violation of the constitution
of the United. States. 1 hat instrument declares
that "new States may be admitted by the Con-
gress into this Union;" that "the United States
shallguarantee to every State in this Union a re-
publican form of Government;" and that "the cit-
izins of each State shall be entitled to all privileges
and immunities of citizens in the several States."
The ordinance of 1787 provides that the constitu

briefly remind gentlemen of some points upon
vhicti we rely. It should be distinctly under-
tood, that we are not mendicants petitioning
Congress to grant us a donation; but we are de-
manding what is ours by compact; we ask a re-
ognition of our claim on the part of Congress, so
hat their tenants or wards may no longer
disturb our possession. We allege, that a contin-
rency has occurred, that entitles us to the line we
claim, and we ask Congress to acknowledge the
existence of that contingency, and to relinquish
11 demand on their part to the territory within
he new line. We ask the Federal Government
o declare expressly what they have already de-
lared impliediy. When we came into the Union,
t was agreed and understood, that if a due east
ine from the southerly bend of Lake Michigan
would not give us Maumee bay, then we should
iave a line running from the southerly bend of
he iake to the most northerly cape of Maumee
-ay; so that the bay was to be ours at all events.
Now, we know that the due east line first men-
iuned will not give us the bay. Congress knows
t also, for their officer has s') reported. We say
t is plain, that, according to the original under-
tanding when we came into the Union, we are
titled to the other line, which gives us the bay.
Congress is asked to admit this, in so many words:

ities, pretending to claim under Congress, and to

f this Union.
Every gentleman, either in or out of Con-
-ress, who has attempted to argue the ques-
ion in behalf of Michigan, has gone back to
he ordinance of Congress adopted in 1787. They
eemn to rely upon tius document as the founda-
ion of their claims, and thus to go behind
hie compact between Ohio and the General Go-
ernment, formed in 1803, of which 1 have just
een speaking. It is supposed that Michigan de-
ives her rights from that ordinance, and conse-
luently no act of Congress, in 1802, or '3, or of
ny subsequent period to 1817, could at all affect
ter interests. A more radical or material error
wouldd not well have been adopted. Michigan is
not known in the ordinance of 1787. She has no
'ested rights under it; nor is she one of the Statvs
tamed in it, which is entitled to come into the
Jnion whenever there are 60,000 inhabitants
within her 1 mits. This assertion of right has been
repeated so often in her behalf, by persons who
have either never read the ordinance, or had not
ense enough to understand it when they did read
t, that hundreds now believe it, and will not be
persuaded to the contrary. Yet it is not true
she never had any such right; and Congress car
tow, under the ordinance, cut up Michigan, anc
divide her between Ohio and Indiana, and never
Ldmit her into the Union. We do not desire any
such thing: we believe she ought to come into thf
Union, but we cainot admit that she has any vest
ed rights upon the subject. A careful examina
ion of the ordinance will prove that we are cor
rect in our opinions.

It is said they have fixed the boundaries of the v.
ew State, making them a part of their constitu- fi
on; and as this bill establishes different bounda- p
es, there will be an incongruity in the proce ed- p
ngs, and all that part of our act will either be null g
id void, or it will be an alteration of a State con- I
itution by law of Congress. It is supposed, too, V
hat by their admission into the Union, we sanc- o
on the constitution, and that it will became valid f
/y relation back from the date of its existence; and f
he subsequent legislation of Congress will have
a influence uiton it. This is a subtle, lawyer- c
ke objection, and seems to have some weight; S
ut I will show that it is entitled to no considera- c
It the first place, they have fixed no boundaries a
>r the State. Ohio, and most, if not all of the it
Sew States, have described their boundaries ex- a
rely i-i their constitutions; but no such thing is c
ttenprited here. They say, '- We, the people of' s
ish-e-F tr yt'-Michigan, do foi'Mranrselvas into 1
i independent State." It is the- people living c
within that Territory who form themselves into a :
instinct political community; but the precise limits n
'ithin which this new State or community is to ex-
-cisejurisdiction, remains undefineid, and to be E
settled thereafter. No boundaries being given a
terefobie, by the constitution, it is the province as t
ell as duty ol Congress to prescribe them. n
Will they be obligatory upon the people when t
hey are prescribed? How caln it be doubted? The c
ill before us requires the people of .qichigant to
lect delegal es to a convention; who, upon meeting i
other, shall express and declare the assent of n
.e people to these boundaries, and then they may t
e admitted iito the Union, and not until then. h
[ow can there be any difficulty on the score of
oundaries, if a new convention shall meet and as- t
ent to the alterations now made? t
Let us look at the other objection; namely, that t
y admitting the State, we sanction thl constitu- t
ion, and make it valid from the day of its date; i
ndl if so, our legislation will be inoperative. The
r-st weak point in the objection is tis: the law
which we pass gives validity to the constitution, t
nd yet the moment life is infused into it, we 0
are to suppose that it receives power to destroy
he provisions of the law which called it into ex- -
stence! '1 hs cannot be. Its life is derived from
he lawv, and yet it destroys the law which imparts 1
hAt life. Can the stream rise higher than its
outitain? Can the creature overpower and de-
ttroy its creator, and still live and enjoy its ficcuil-
ies and powers unimpaired? Can an agent
disobey his principal, violate his instructions,
and rise above all his commands, and still bind
tim by his agreements, and claim to be acting tin- I
letr his authority) ? Thes things involve ri absur
lity too monstrous to admit of discussion. The
constitution derives its authority, so far as the other
States and the Federal Government are concern-
ed, entirely from the law of Congress. It is sub
ect to stiuch restrictions and modifications as the
aw may impose. It is now a dead letter, and must
continue so forever, until it receives our sanction;
and i, will date its validity, as against all but its
own citizens, from the time when that sanction is
co.mplete. Previous to that period, it is no more
:o Congress, to Ohio, or to any other State in the
Union, than a piece of white paper. It is an in-
strument dawn up, according to all the forms of
-aw, lying upon the table, waiting for the parties
to sign and seal it. Although it may be dated
upon the first of January, yet if it be not executed
till March, it takes effect only from the date of its
Another objection is, that aliens have aided in
making this constitution, and are allowed the right
ofsuffrage in all elections by the provisions it con-
tains. As to the first point, it is sufficient to s.ty,
that all the new States northwest of the Ohio foim-
e I their constitutions precisely- in the same way.
The ordinance of 1787 does not require sixty
thousand citizens of the United States to be resi-
dent within the limits of a new State, in order to
authorize a con:,titution and admission into the
more explicit. But when a law is even sUqepti-
ble, fairly, of two constructions, that one should
be given that is consistent with sound sense ai.d
with the constitution. If we adhere to th s;'rule,
there can be no po-sible difficulty in regard to
the provision now under consideration.
There is no other objection which has been rais-
ed against this measure, that I think it necessary .
to combat. I will say a word, in passing, with re- |
gard to At kansas. She is equally entitled to ad |
mission with the other. Is her constitution repub-
lican? Who doubts it? Is this a. time or place to
discuss abstractions? If her constitution is not
republican, then the constitutions of one half the
States in the t'nion are not. Are we prepared to
fan a flame that already burns with a strength and
an ardor calculated to startle every patriot in the
land? I am sure that a large majority of this|
House will frown down all attempts to produce an f
excitement that can do no possible good, and may
be attended by evils 6f the most -alarming charac-
ter. You have given her a territorial Gpvernment,
and engrafted institutions upon it, by your own
laws. She is on the southern side of the line
drawn by the "compromise" of'the "Missouri ques-
tion." She has asked you repeatedly for leave to
form a State Government, and you have neglect-
ed her, as you did Michigan. She has at length
actedand framed a constitution, which she re-
spectfully asks you to accept and ratify, and al--'
low her to come into the Union. How can she be
refused? She has the requisite nunriber ofinhabi
tants. They are our friends and fellow-citizens,
and are entitled to a full participation in all the
benefits of the Union.
With regard to objections to their constitution,
the same remarks may be made that were applied
to the other State. -Compel them tV change it;
admit them; and perhaps the niext week they will
call a convention and amend it, so as to restpe thie
same features to which you raised the objection.
The people of these new communities deserve
kindness at our hands. They are unrider'our pro-
tection and guardianship; and now, when they ire
about to set up for themselves, we ought to mani-
f st the affection of a parent, and the solicitude of a
ioti e, nd the elattiotn shall be owntkited, it i*1
e timn enoygl1 then for us to enter at large into
e question, whether such votes shall be retained "
r rejected. For the present, it is enough for our'
purpose, that there is nothing upon the face of
iis constitution that conflicts with that of their
united States. Similar observations will apply tol
ie case of a United States Senator. Who would
link of coivtesting his seat, because a. member
f the State Legislature voted for him, who hadi
itself been elected, in part, hy aliens? No one,,i
apprehend, would carry his refinements upowt
'incipies of government quite that far;, hbut if bet
should, the Senate will determine the contest.'
v'lien it is brought before them, We have no-
hing to do with it upon the present occasion. If'
aiy constitution does not set up a .rule, plainly at
ariance with the federal constitution, we are,
found to receive it. All we can o6, is, to inquire if
be a republican constitution, and not inconsistent -
with the paramount law of the Union? The objection i
o this instrument seems to be, that its too rnp-tbli-i
an; it extends the right of suffrage entirely too
ati-, to suit the views of certain gentlemen. It is i
eldom, nowadays, that we meet with an instru-' *
nent of this solemn character, to which -such an
objection will apply. Most of them rin to the
opposite extreme, and instead of-carrying out,'
practically, the great principle that man-is capable
f self-government, and can be safely entrusted '
ith the management of his own affairs, their P
'ramers seem to have been solicitous to guard the
people against themselves, and to curtail their
powers and privileges as much as possible. I am
lad to see a liberal spirit prevailing in Mclhigan.
Fheir constitution i- worthy of thtt age in which
we live; and it would be well -for some of theta
Ider members of the confederacy, if they would
ullow the example which has been set by our,
Onie answer, however, may be given to all these
objections to the constitution, which is conclusive .
Suppose we refuse to admit thie State until thet; F
neet and alter the constitution to please our tastes,
ir gr'Atify our peculiar notions up;n the subject,
.nd we then admit them into the Union; whak
s theie to hinder them, (thlie next week after they
are admitted, from calling a convention anr*c
changing the constitution back to the very-
amie thing it is at present Who can prevent it?
)oes not every State in the Union possess and ex-
-rcise- the mri to1tAJlWrer constitution when she
)l-ases, and as she pleasess; s6 it still re-
mains a republican form of government? All at-
empts at restriction upon these new States must
ie futile, so long as they, too, have this power to
ltt r and amend. We cannot force them to any t
thing; and, if we intend to give advice, wie had
nuch better advise some of the old State to ex-
end the right of suffrage, than to ask the people
of Michigan to curtail it within her borders.
I wiil notice another objection I have heard
irged to the bill. It declares that upon the ad-
nission of the State, the Senators and Represent-s.
ives, who have been elected by sad State, shall
be entitled to take their seats here, without further -
lelay. No persons are named; but the objectors
take it for granted th.-t Messrs. Lyon and-Norvell,
he two Senators, and Mr. Crary, the representa-'
ive, who are now here, are the individuals in'
ended by this provision; and it is gaid that w(
are legislating them into their seats, if so, wt,
ire doing wrong; for the constitution ot th0
United States guaranties to each House the- right
to judge of the elections and qualificatibris'of itst
own members. Neither House has a right to sa
who shall take a seat in the other; and consequen-
y, no such question can be settled by \aA
which is the act of both Houses, sanctioned 6y tb
['resident of the United States. All such law
would be palpable violations of the consoonl
If the phraseology of the bill is consulted, it|
will be perceived, that it neither names any indi-(
viduals who shall take seats in Congress; nor does
it apply to persons who may be now claiming a_
right to take seats here, or to those who may have 1
been heretofore elected by the people,'or Legis-
lature of Michigan. It speaks of a state of things,
which is hereafter to exist; and not of thepre-.
sent time. When thisbill is passed, and the con--
vention of Michigan have approved of the boun-
daries given to the State, the President is to issue
a proclamation, declaring that she is admitted into
the Union; an'd then, the persons who shall ppi-
sent themselves here, claiming seats, if they have
been elected, duly elected, will be entitled to
take their places as members of the two houses.
But each House will judge for itself, whether they
have been elected or not. No matter, whether
the gentleman now here, under their present cef"
tificates of election, or under new ones; or son. -
some other indivtck-,tJ, nt here-by -t!Sti
shall claim the seats; each House will 4Xtmin ->.
their claims to membership, and re-ee or rI -
ject them, according to the dictates of'their Ewat
understandings, without reference to this bi8
or to any other that Congress could pass
on the subject. Laws will have no influence upon ,
the pretensions f any individual. They only <,on-
fer a right upon the State to send members-here.
But the fact of the person who comes being con- 1
stitutionally and properly sent, will be tried and
decided by each House for itself. This is the ,
onty fair construction to be placed upon- the lan-
guage used in the bill. It might have been- made
tl, and -idordreys. IBy this juat, hesmane, nmi
bLeneficent polity, we shall, consolidate our lber.-
Stiesi and mike thiu Government what Mr. W4fer.
s.. n, wore, than thirty years ago, declined it to
be ithe strongest Government oh earth; the
only one where every man, at the call of the
law, will fly to the standard of the law, and meet
invasions of the public order as his own persvnai
foncernt" With this policy on the part of the
Government, and the spii it of patriotismi that now
animates our citizens, p full vigor, united Ameri-
a7 -n may bid defiance to. a world in arms; and
-.should Providence continue to smile upon our
country, we may confidently anticipaie that the

we now enjoy, will be as perpetual as the lofty
mnounitains that crown our continent, or the noble
Sriyere that fertilize our plains. .

SATURDAY, SEPT. 10, 1836.
The late trial of strength in Maryland, in so far
as it regards the election of President, is decisive
in favor of the democracy. There is a majority
of above THREE THOUSAND of the popular
vote in favor of the democratic candidates for
senatorial electors, avowing themselves openly in
favor of Mr. Van Buren, against the opposing
candidates who availed themselves of the popu-
larity of every Presidential aspirant against Mr.
Van Buren. That the opposition have carried
their Senate by a majority of two, is attributable
to that inequality of representation in the State
which gives to Calvert, with 'little more than
three thousand citizens, TWO REPRESENTA-
TIVES in the body appointing the Senators,
and Baltimore, with upwards of s&xty-one thou-
sand, only ONE REPRESENTATIVE. This
system, which makts three equal to sixty, does
not oxibt in Presidential elections. The State
votes by general ticket, and we have scarce a
doubt that the majority of three thousand in favor
of the Van Buren senatorial electors will be aug-
mented in that for Presidential electors.
It is pretended by Gales and other opposition
editors, that their party took little interest in the
late struggle, and did not come to the polls.
This is sheer deception. We are apprized
that large subscriptions were raised, great feasts
given, and every species of petty bribery
employed. But the sense of the impor-
tance of the election, which occurs only once in
five years, was sufficient of itself to call out the
w.hoe body of anti-republicans. The electors
just chosen, appoint the Senate. They always
make this body unanimous for the party electing
them. The Senate, therefore, which is unani-
mous, controls the Legislature of the State, and
decides for five years the appointment of every
officer of State, from the Governor down, as well
as the Senators of the United States. The oppo-
sition having turned out at the beginning of the
last five years' reign, every democratic officer in
the State was sensible that all their place hold-
ers depended on the result of last Monday. Be-
sides all this, the majority of the people have been
struggling to get a revision of the constitution, to
restore them to equal rights in the elective
franchise, and to get rid of the monstrous
anomaly of a Senate elected by electors chosen
on the rotten borough principle. The late result
shows what a mockery it makes of the great rep-
resentative principle. The federalists carried the
little county or St. Mary's by 13 votes. These 13
votes give the federal party two votes, which is a
power of two to one over the sixty thousand of the
city of Baltimore, carried by the democrats by a
majority of more than 1600. These two votes of
St. Mary's give the whole Senate to the opposi-
tion, and complexion to the Legislature for five
years-appoint the Governor, and through him all
the State officers-and denies the people all power
to reform a Government by which they are so op-
Can Gales make any body believe that the fede-
ralists would ever launch out their means to sup-
port Harrison,with the same zeal and liberality they
would to maintain their long enjoyed despotism
over the State?
WHO ARE THE SPECULATORS?
The Boston Atlas makes this inquiry of us, in
reply to the flat denial of the charge of specula-
tion brought against Mr. Van Buren, and the au
thotized digelaimer of an- p, t^ip, J.iauu iy him,
directly or indirectly, now or at any time, in the
purchase of the public lands. To this new call
of the Atlas for the speculators, we cannot re-
spond fully, not having the slightest connection
with speculations of any sort, and very little ac-
quaintance with the concerns of others. But we
are enabled (through information just derived
from a friend of undoubted veracity) to point out
to the editor of the Atlas A SPECULATOR OF
GODLIKE DIMENSIONS. We understand that
DANIEL WEBSTER (profanely sir-named the
God-like by his friends) is A GIGANFIC SPECU-
LATOR. And further, we have heard, and be-
lieve, that he has contrived to get A LARGE
SUM of money out of the deposit banks to
make his speculations in the public lands.
PEOPLE SPEAKING OUT.
The WHITE and BELL party in Tennessee,
when they secretly struck their bargain with the
bank and federal leaders to transfer the State to
them, proceeded by stealth to pack a legislature in-
imical to the President-all pretending to be
friends. The legislature then filled the offices with
the same sort of white friends to the President;
that is, friends fair outside, but black at heart to-
wards him. In anticipation, all the leading presses
in the State were purchased up, and kept up
the same hypocritical profession; and with these
preparations, the insidious war upon the adminis
tration commenced. The mass of the people of
the State have been thus completely imposed on
as to thereal designs of the hypocrites and apostates
who have engaged to sacrifice the principles and
party that support General Jackson's administra-
tion, and with them all the happy results of his
policy, and his glory as a statesman. But it seems
that the people are awaking to a sense of the con-
spiracy of Bell and White, and regardless of the or-
ganized State power which has been arrayed to giye
a new direction to its politics, the people are boldly
taking a stand and expressing their "full and cordial
approbation" t fan administration,which White and
Bell are basely and falsely charging with corrup-
tion. In the following letter the President mani-
fests the grateful ir-ipression which the cordial and
kind support from his old friends makes on his
We he, fillow citizensg, in evil timeit when i-
litlcal apostacy-becomnes frequent, when pt1blic

THE GOVERNMENT STOCK IN THE UNI-
TED STATES BANK.
"It is notorious that the President has at all
times asserted, that the Bank of the United
States would never pay off its stockholders at
par; these assertions have been reiterated by all
the panders of corruption. The Globe has re-
peated them, times without number. At length
Congress passed a law, authorizing the Secre-
tary of the Treasury to dispose of the stock,
(seven millions of dollars,) owned by the Go-
vernmentin that institution. What has Mr. Wood-
bury done in relation to this subject ? It is
widiin my knowledge, that the bank is ready and
willing to make the purchase on fair and equita-
61be, terms. Now, here is seven millions of stock,
which the hireling echoes of the palace have been
compelled to assert was not worth ninety cents on
a dollar, and for which they are offered and re-
fuse, in cash, one hundred and ei4-ht or ten cents
on a dollar. Why is such an offer refused ? Why
has not Mr. Woodbury offered the stock fubr
sale, in the market, at a fixed price ? Are we to
be told that he has not had sufficient time to as-
certain its true value? Has he not been familiar with
its concerns for years past ? Have nut weekly
statements been laid before him, from the day
that he came into the Treasury, until the 4th of
March last, when the bank ceased to operate? But
more than all, are the public to be impudently
informed, that all the slanders against this insti-
tution, based upon statements from the Treasury
Department, were published to the world, with-
out examination, and without a knowledge of their
truth or falsity ? If any indivi luals or company
are willing to take this stock, and pay for it at
its real value, why does not Mr Woodbury sell it?
S"I will tell you, and in doing it I only repeat
what I have heretofore said, that he refuses to
sell this stock because he is determined to de-
feat the law of Congress. If he sells the stock,
the money might come into the Treasury, and
would constitute an increase of surplus, to be
divided on the 1st of January."
NOTE rBY THE GLOBE.-The above extract is
from that receptacle of all kinds of misrepresenta
tion, the Boston Atlas, and purports to be from a
correspondent in New York. We should not no
tice it, were not the real truth on the subject im
portant to be known, independently of the correc-
tion of several misstatements, for which not the
slightest foundation exists in any thing which has
yet taken place.
1. The act of Congress referred to does not, as
the Atlas groundlessly asserts, authorize Mr.Wood-
bury to sell the stock owned by the Governmeni
in the United States Bank. This any person may
see, who will take the trouble to read the law
We are told that such an authority was requested
allowing any bidders permission first to examine
into the concerns of the institution, so as to be
able to know, with some certainty, the value o:
the stock before bidding, and to make proposals
But the friends of the Bank did not choose tt
move such an amendment to the bill. To hav
attempted to carry it against them, would have
exposed the bill to defeat by delay..
2. We have been authorized to state thai
no offer has been made or refused of any sum pel
s'are, though this profligate Bank partisan says
"they are offered and refuse, in cash, eight or ten
cents on a dollar."
3. The act only empowers the Secretary ol
the Treasury t, settle with the Bank on suct
terms as he may find to be proper; and, su far
from delaying the settlement en his part for any
purpose whatever, as is falsely alleged by this
unscrupulous advocate of the Bank, we have in.
quired, and are informed, that even before the ad-
journment of Congress a letter was written to the
Bank by Mr. Wooddury, enclosing a copy of the
act, and urging immediate steps for a settlement,
that he afterwards had an interview with Mr. Bid-
dle on the same subject, and expressed his readi-
ness and desire to enter into an arrangement as soor
as the preliminary information necessary to a cor-
rect knowledge of the value of the stock was com-
municated, or soon as the Bank itself was prepared
to make proposals of the time, mode, and amount
contemplated by it, for adjustment; that assurances
were given in return that the Bank would, al
as early a day as practicable, present its proposals
that, not receiving them in the months of June
and early part of July, nor the information re-
quested, another letter was written to the Bank in
the latter part of July, and renewed assurances
given in reply, that the Bank was causing to be
made, as diligently as the season of the year and
the extent and nature of the inquiry would allow,
a full examination, preparatory to offers for meet-
ing the wishes of the Department as to an adjust-
ment; and that whenever completed, the Depart-
ment would be apprized of the result.
Yet after all this, the brazen-faced advocate of
the Bank, professing to be fully acquainted with
the whole subject, has the graceless impudence to
impute designed delay to Mr. Woodbury, and a
wish on his part to postpone an adjustment till
another year, as a part of the monstrous conspira-
cy by the President and Cabinet to defeat the de-
following 11 the Evaniville Journal. Tho paper.
is respectable: the ttdement editorial, 'and it
would, therefore, seem to be worthy of cr lit.
The American say
For ourselves-though loth to entertain siue'
a belief--we cannot get rid of the impression that
this specie Circular is only part of a great plot by
means whereof men, high in the confidence of the
General Goveminent, are to be enabled to make
vast land speculations at the expense of the very
:class for whose rights and welfare so much solici-
tude is affected-actual settlers. On this head,
we refer to the extracts which follow respecting
land speculations "
Then comes the article from the Evansville
The New-York Winnebago Land Company:
the People's Money, and Van Buren.-Think not,
gentle reader, that the long head of this article
will have appended to it a long tale. No, it is
soon told. .
"1st. There is a company of land speculators
ycleped The New York Winnebago Land Cornm.
pany,' with an immense capital of twenty mil-
2d. The people's nImney once was safe in the
U. States Bank, whereit was placed by the laws
of our country. There 't could not be used for
the purpose of electioneering. It was removed
thence by thefiat of General Jackson, and placed
in the pet baisks-that is to say, in such banks
as were willing to succumb to the powers that be,
and allow the money to be used for the purpose of
bringing to the Presidency of these United States,
the adopted heir of General Jackson; but the
money is not in those banks now.
3d. Martin Van Buren is the principal stock-
holder in the New York Winnebago Land Com-
"4th. The New York Winnebago Land Comn-
pa y is constituted of Van Buren men, good and
"5th. The New York Winnelago Land Corn-
pany has a large portion of the people's money,
in the hands of the agents, who are travelling
through the western country, and buying the peo-
ple's land with it!
"6th. These agents of the New York Winne-
bago Land Company are, as in duty bound, cun-
ningly electioneering to make Martin Van Buren
President of these United States.
"Now, reader, what think you of this MON-
STER, the New York Winnebago Land Compa-
ny? There is no fiction in the above statements.
It is. within our knowledge that this company has,
within a few days, purchased a great deal of
valuable land in this city. Suppose this company
should lay out their wholecapital, twenty millions,
in the purchase of new land, it would purchase
sixteen millions acres of land!-territory enough
for the erection of an independent kingdom.
Hc-e, indeed, is a MONSTER, more to be feared
than a thousand United States Banks."
We shall take the shortest course with this fa-
brication; we pronounce every important fact in
the statement untrue.
The capital of the company alluded to, instead
of being twenty millions, is less than one hundred
Mr. Van Buren has no interest, direct or indi-
rect, in the stock, nor has Mr. Attorney General
It is managed in this city. Its president is a
whig of the first watel, and so are a majority of
Sits directors; among whom is an individual distin-
guished as a whig candidate for one of the most
important offices -in this State in the last abortive
struggle for power.
THE ENGLISH TORY LORDS AND THE
AMERICAN WHIG SENATORS.
The following scrap, which we take from the
National (Bank) Gazette, of Philadelphia, shows
how perfectly the Bank Senators (who by a mis-
nomer call themselves Whigs) are identified in
the minds of their own party with the Tory Lords,
who distinguish themselves as CONSERvATIVES;
that is, conservatives of the existing abuses of the
English Government. The Bank Gazette pub-
lishes a strong argument, in favor of the irresponsi-
ble power of the House of Lords and in opposi-
tion to the effort of the reformers to render that
body elective, and subject to the will of the nation.
This vindication of an absolute and irresponsible
aristocracy in its senatorial sphere, is thus intro-
duced with an editorial commendation, in that ulti a
Bank press, (the Gazette,) which has just given
in its adhesion to Harrison:
"It is, therefore, but common justice to present
the arguments which the organ of an ancient, dig-
nified, and gifted aristocracy, a class which, in
former ages, has done high and noble service for
liberty and knowledge, and still exercises irrespon-
sible political authority with calmness, if not with
perfect impartiality, offers in favor of the continu-
ance of its existence and powers. The fate of the
House of Lords cannot fail to excite interest in the
mind of every intelligent American who valuh s the
stability of Governments as the surest guaranty of
progressive freedom. The free press of the United
States, if past indications have not deceived us,
may yet have to do battle for the federal branch
of our own National Legislature."
Below will be found the result of yesterday's
contest, and if the victory is not ours, yet it cer-
tainly affords the most flattering earnest of the
speedy reg-eneration of old Talbot. For years
past the federal majorities haie ranged from eighty
to one hundred; but the day of retribution is fast
approaching; instead of one hundred and fifty or
two hundred majority, as was anticipated by our
opponents, they have left us in a meager minority
of TWENTY-E-VE votes. The people (f Talbot
will not sustain the federal party in its lawless in-
vasion of their rights. Our friends have but to
make one more exertion, and the first Monday in
October will crown their efforts with success.-

ED)ITO. d TilE GLOBE.
I perceive that the editors of the federal paper?
are now making tables,, based upon their iti-
about the recent elections, to show the probability)
of their defeating Mr. VAx BUEnx for the Presi-
dency. One editor gives' Mr. VAN BuiiEs 17
electoral votes out of 294; another gives him 22
But Duff Green, thinking (I svppe) these "ta-
bles'" too .barefaced, published i. theTelegraph.
of yesterday a table prepared by himself, on in-
troducing which, he says: "In parenting the foi-
lowing estimate,: we do it with the-utm-.-st -confn-
dence that the result given will be realized.: It-is
formed upon a thorough and impartial examination
of the state of parties at the present time..' This
table give HAtBIsoN 100, WHITE 93, VAN BUiRENK .
74,. and WEBSTEM, 14i electoral votes, and puts
down the remainder, 13, as doubtful. .,
Now I propose to prove conclusively that
nobody believes these editors; and, further, that
they do not believe themselves. I will ('o it with one
of their own argutnents-a' wager and the bet
one they use, too, for they are otten.cer wn
they offer it. '" '
They have claimed all the St 1es where i th
elections have recently taken place; they have
claimed'every section ot the Unioni and they have
claimed a majority of the United States, for theiir-
1 now offer them the following wagers, some of
which they must accept, if they believe any part of
of what they have said.
1st. I will bet $100 on each of the eight south-
ern and western States, where elections bave re-
cently taken place, namely, Kentucky, indiana,
Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina, Alabama, Lou-
isiana, 'and Arkansas, that VAN BUazx 'receives
the electoral vote of the State.
2d. I will bet $250 that HARRISON, WarE, and
WEBSTER, will not get mote electoral votes6ji the
New England States than Mr. VAN BUB.UEN:'-250
that they will not- get more in the middle States,
namely, New" York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania,,
Delaware, and Maryland, than Mr. VAN BuaRL
$250 that they will not get more in the western
States, namely, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, In-
diana, Ilinois, and Missouri, than Mr. VAN BUREN:
and $250 that they will not get more in the south-
ern States, including all the States of the Union
that have not been named herein, than Mr. VAN
3d. I will bet $1,000 that Mr. VA1 BUREN will
be elected President of the United States at the
ensuing election: $250 that he gets double as
many electoral votes as HARRISON: $250 that he
gets three times as many as WHITE: $250 that he
gets four times as many as WEBsrTER: and $250 that
he gets twenty-five electoral votes more than all
three of them.

V VALUABLE REAL ESTATE FOR SALE.-
The undersigned Commissioners, acting in
obedience to and under the authority of an order
of the high Court of Chancery of the State of Ma-
ryland, will expose to public sale to Lhe highest
bidder, on Monday, the 10th day of October next,
at Grimes' store, adjoining the premises, that
highly valuable tract of land situated in Prince
George's county and State aforesaid, two or three
miles south of the eastern branch of the Potomac,
called Barnaby Manor," containing by patent
1,407 acres, and now the residence of Henry A.
This land abounds in wood and timber, having a
great excess above a supply for the demands of the
farm, and much more than any estate near it. It
is well watered, and remarkably healthy. A con-
siderable timothy meadow can be made on it, at a
small expense. The soil, originally fertle, has
suffered from bad and excessive cultivation; but
its aptitude to the growth of red clover, and hap-
py susceptibility to the action of gypsum, insure
and facilitate its restoration to fertility in a short
time, and at little expense.
The buildings are comfortable, and sufficient for
the accommodation of a large family. A sum
not exceeding $500 will, be required in cash; for
the residue of the purchase money, three years'
credit will be given, the purchaser executing bond,
with approved security, bearing interest from the
day of sale.

THU/ TRSDAY MORNINGS, sEPT. 1836.
BANK OFW THE UNITED STATES.
The attention of the democracy in every State
a in the Union, aind especially in those States in
wJbich tfe dem ocracy posressoes the majority in the
Legiltture, is earnestly invoked to the following
plain facts and brief rebectioRs.
....e .first,' That the present Pliennsylvania
United States ank* is issuing, and reissuing, the
,-notes :astd. drafts of the old United States Bank.
SThe truth or tirfact can be verifled'at the bank
in Philadelphia, and at all the agencies established
; r by it throughout the United" States; andc so con-
-temptuofs it this institution ifn thus putting the
deadnQtes ofa dead bank upo' the country that it
openly exults and triumphs in such contiduct,,and
r- elies apoa tilhewbi party to keep these defunct
notes in circulation.;. for the payment of wiich no
bank '.oQr'person. are bound, a nd fpr the counter-
fritingof which no person is legally punishable.
The old institution is twice dead; first, by the expi-
Sratien of its charter onthe 3dcVqlarch last, (the
two years being only all4owedit for the purpose of
closing its business;) and secondly, by the accep-
-=taoce of aiiew charter from'Pennsylvania. Qnce
dead is enough t- ,i!tegalize the re-issue otWthe
notess, of the',old bank, "but twice dead is not
enough to reduce this rebel despot to a subjection
to the laws of the land. The notes which were
out at the time of the expiration of the charter,
Sarc good against the -old bank, as the notes given
by a ma hiH his lifetime are good against his es-
State; but onge paid, they are dead, and cannot be
revived or resuscitated by any enactment of law,,
or' by any act of men. Here then are the dead
notes of a dead institution put into circulation, and
that in every State in which an agency can be es-
tablished; for the payment of Which notes nobody
is bound, and for. the forgery of which no body is
liable! Congress has repealed the 14th. section of
the old bank charter, "which 'was to protect the
federal Government against the imposition, of
these defunct notes: is it not the bounden duty of
e, ery democratic State Legislature to take effec-
tual. bL,.ePs to protect the citizens of the State
"aainstc th 0 also?
7 .Faet'the seem -' That the corporators in the
o-d Bank of the United States have not become
subscribers to the toqk of he new Pennsylvanit
Un-ted States Bank. This fact ca; beascertained
by inquiry at the bank in the city of Philadel-
phia, or by applying to any stockholder in the old
bank in any part of the Union. Indeed, it will
tot be questioned it being assumed that the
.charter granted by the State Legislature of Penn-
sylvanial and the acceptance* of that charter by
Mr. Biddle'a automatom directory, has, ipso fact,
transferred the old stockholders (all except the
United States) to thi new institution. This as-
sumption is subject to three separate answers:
1. It is not in the power of the Pennsylvania Le-
gislature, nor of all the Legislatures in the world
put together, to transfer a corporator and his stock
from one bank to another } 2. That it is not in the
.power of, Mr. Biddle's Rliant directory, nor of
all the bank directories upon the face of the
earth, to transfer the stock of one bank to another;
3. 'hat it is not in the power of the stockholders
in the old bank, neither by their own act, nor by
the powers of attorney which they gaye to Mr.
Middle, to transfer their stock to the new bank,
or to any other bank whatever. That stock is

-F.act thefourth: That the seven millions of stock
owned by the United States in the Bank of the
United States, is not restored to the United States,
Snor the dividends on it paid to the United States;
but that the same is now in the lawless custody
and use of the men who are acting under a char-
ter from the State of Pennsylvania. Why is not
this stock refunded? The cause can only be one
of two reasons: inability, or, unwillingneaO! The
borrowing expedition ..of Mr. Jaudon to Europe,
Should indicate the former; the conduct, of the
directory of the bank, wodld indicate the latter.
SBut why not pay the dividends? Is the whole
seized upon and held as indemnity for the remo
val of the deposits, according to the right claim-
ed for the bank by its directory and the report
of the famous whitewashing committee of 1834?
BLthese reasons as they may, it is a fact, that the
men who are acting under the Pennsylvania char-
ter, have got possession of the seven millions be-
longing to-the United States, and keep it! and
while thus detaining these seven millions, they pre-
tend to have- millions to establish agencies in the
Fact the fifth: That the Pennsylvania United
States Bank intentu3 to establish its agencies in the
States WITHOUT CAPI'AL, and to make them
the instruments for collecting the gold and silver
of the States, and sending it to Philadelphia. This
fact can be ascertained by any State where an
agency is -establishexd, or is about to be establish-
ed. The modus operandi is this: instead of capi-
tal, i. e. specie, they send the dead notes of the
-old dead United States Bank, and with these dead
notes they deal in ex:cchange, and buy and sell
bills of exchange on the east. When they sell a
bill on the east they must remit the means to meet
it, and this remittance is in gold and silver; and
thereby the States become deprived of their hard
money, and get in return for it the dead notes of a
dead institution, for the payrnent of v which nobody
is bound, and for the forgery of which nobody is
punishable. These agencies, then, are mere

urtity and oyistence, to continue to operate in
elections and in politics, until a new- national char-
ter h om Congress can be pilfei'ed fromrn the people,
by smuggling in two-thirds of bank :members into
Congress, rer getting the election of President into
the House olr-epresentatives, where 1he'Bank can
elect one of it debtors and attornies for President.
This is the real design of what is called the State
charter; and to the success of ,his design the es-
tablishment of AG:ENCIES in the States is indis-
pensable. These agencies are to do the POLITI-
CAL work which wais done by the former branch
banks, and as such will be applied for, defended,
protected, and encouraged by the ssi disant
WHIGS in every State in the Union. The de-
mocracy will oppose these agencies; the Whigs
will support them; and this contest will be valuable
in one point of view; it will discriminate parties in
the States, and keep the question on its true
grounds. Bnk or no bank is still the question,
and the expulsion, taxation, and proscription of
these agencies will be the touchstone by which
State politicians will be identified, and State poli-
tics will be governed. Thanks to the audacity of
Biddle! .lHis attempts to obtrude these agencies
into the States will trrnissh the test for detecting'
his partisans, and keeping parties correctly discri- ?
Fact tse seventh: That the Bank of the Unaited
States, both old and new, is the deadly enemy of'
the constitutional currency, and ihas done, is do-
ing, and will do, all in its power to suppress the
gold currency. The reason of this hatred is be-
cause a national gold currency is preferable to a
national paper currency; and if gold can be re-
stored to circulation, the argument in favor of a.
national bank will cease. Hence the whig war
upon gold; hence the cryof gold humbug; hence
the hatred to all the friends of gold; and hence
the ne.farious efforts, even to imitating counter-
feitq, to bring gold into discredit. Thismwar upon
gold will also have one good effect; it will help to
discriminate parties; it will assist in detecting the
United States Bank partisans; and it will contri-
bute to keep the question on its true basis. Thanks
to Mr. Sherrod Williams! His insidious letter
to Mr. VAN BUREN has rendered a great ser-
vice! It has given him an opportunity to make
known his sentiments on the currency, and has
drawn from that gentleman, not only a declara-
tion of principles, but a luminous argument in Efa
vor of GOLD and SILVElI. Henceforth gold
and Van Buren will be identified! Henceforth he
w.ll be the gold candidate for the Presidency!
The question of the gold currency wilt go into
the Presidential canvass. It will be decided by
the people at the polls; and if Mr. Van Buren is
electdl, as seems certain, the people now have a
pledge for the continuation of President Jackson's
most glorious policy for the restoration of the gold
currency. We rejoin, good luck follows bad inten-
tions, and thanks to Mr. Sherrod Williams for his
Scunning letter! The friends of Mr. Van Buren

the State Government opposed to u., who dtread
nothing so much as r.borm. Besides all these,
we had to contend against the influence and
weight of some of the officers of the General
Government at Washington, who are fattening

With such a combination against us, it is not
surprising that we did not succeed in full. But
our friends are not disheartened. They are de-

result of yesterday's election as a sure presage of
our ultimate victory and complete triumph.
OFFICIAL-FROM THE ARMY.
MixCANorr, Aug. 21, 1836.
SIR: I have the honor to report to you that I
arrived here yesterday, and learning that there
were Indians lurking about Fort Drane, ten miles
from this post, I determined to make an expedi-
tion, against them. For this purpose I marched, at
two o'clock this morning, with 110 men and a
piece of ordnance, fifty men, commanded by Capt.
Childs of the 3d artillery, and Lieut. Spalding of
the 2d dragoons, fifty men by Lieut. J. R. Irwin
and Lieut. Herbert of the 1st artillery. I arrived
at Fort Drane about sunrise, attacked the Indians,
who proved to be numerous, say 300, Miccasucky
Indians commanded by Powell. Lieuts. Irwin and
Herbert on the right, Capt. Childs and Lieutenant
Spalding on the left% the artillery in the centre,
commanded by Lieut. Pickell, all attacked them
with great vigor and spirit, drove them three-
fourths of a mile into an extensive hammock, and
in a hurried passage over the field counted ten
This engagement was well contested by the In-
dians, who fought with determined bravery for
more than an hour. The recesses to which they
retired could not be penetrated by our exhausted
and inferior force. I therefore minarched the de-
tachment back to Micanopy, leaving no killed or
wounded en the field. Our loss was one killed
and sixteen wounded, v~z: Lieutenant Betts,
(my Adjutant) slightly wounded in the thigh;
Sergeants Dustn, (C) 4th Artillery; Ayres,
(A) 3d Artery, wounded; Corporals Mc-
Knight, (C) 4th Artillery; North, (I) 3d Ar-
tillery; Dennis, (A) 3d Artillery, wounded; Ar-
tificers Skiffington, (C) 4th Artillery; Sin-
clair, (E) 1st Artiilery, wounded; Musician, Alex-
ander Heer, (G) 1st Artillery, wounded; Privates,
Shisler, (E) 1st Artillery; Treat, (A) 3d Artil-
lery; Coppir.ger, (C) 4th Artillery; Story, (A)
3d Artillery; Ribbold, (A) 3d Artillery; Bennet,
(D) 1st Artilliy, wounded, none thought dain-
gerous; Wagon nastler, Jackson, severely; killed,
Sykes, private, (G) 1st Artillery.
The officers of my command were Capt. Chills,
3d Artillery; Lieut. Pickell, 4th Artillery; Lieut.
J. R. Irwin, 1st Artillery; Lieut. Spalding, 2d
Dragoons; Lieut. herbert, 1st Artillery; Lieut.
W. H. Betts, (Adjutant,) 1st Artillery; Surgeons
Tripler and Bevy.
The officers and men all justified my most san-
I deem it due to Capt. Childs to state, that he
+ contemplated the same movement previous to my
arrival, and was awaiting the return of the train to
accomtplish his purpose.
Jackson, a wagon master, well acquainted with
the localities of Fort Drane, volunteered his set'-
vices, and as a guide oi the march, or a soldier in
the engagement, was brave and useful. He re-
ceived two severe wounds, lost a valuable horse,
and deserves a liberal reward.

EXTRACTS FROM MR. PINCKNEY'S AD-
But as I was opposed to distribution under its
own appropriate name, and while it was kept
separate and distinct, so I was equally opposed to
it when it was united to deposit, and assumed that
name. The change of its name did not alter its na.
ture. Mr. Calhoun said, "no Secretary of the
Treasury will ever dare to demand a dollar of it
from the States;" and again he said, "that the
bhlhed Ifor -Ent pirh) -'r, ,: ,td ?,1 ,itr.ly I
separate api.e;'e.-. ThO one relates to the common
and external concelnsi ofaai the Statesin their con.
federate capacity--the other to the internal and
domestic concerns of the individual States, sepas
r-tely from, and independently of, each other.
For the purpose of maintaining their harmony,
and ensuring their efficiency, in their respective
spheres,they are invested with a concurrent power
of taxation, and possess,, each for itself, its own
separate an I exclusive treasury. Every State
government is authorized to tax the people of the
6tate, of which it is the government, to promote
the welfare of its constituents, and to execute the
purposes of its own institution. In like manner
the federal goverimelnt is vested with siutherity to
tax the whole people of the Union for the purpose
of executing the great objectsfor which the confed-
eracy was established. In fact, this was one of the
principal reasons for which the existing Constitu-
tion was formed. During the Revolution, the
States had treasuries of t heir own, and encoun-
tered no difficulty in the collection of their teve.
nue. But it is a matter of history that the' old
Continental Congress was entirely dependant on
the States for the pecuniary means of carrying on
the warand sustaining the confederation, and that
difficulties occurred of so serious a character, from
the delay or refusal of States to pay their contribu-
tions, as not only to embarrass the military opera-
tions of the country,but even to threaten the disso-
lution of the confederacy itself. It was to remedy
these evils, and to' prevent the recurrence of
similar collisions between the States and the Fede-
ral Government, that Congress, under the exist-
ing constitution, wasauthorized to collect revenue
for itself, and to maintain a treasury of its own,
for the execution of the powers with which it is
invested. Those powers are, to pay the expenses
of the Government, to maintainn an army and a
navy, to regulate commerce with foreign nation-s
and with the Indian tribes; to make treaties; to
repress insurrections, and certain others, which
will be found in -the catalogue of enumerated
grants. It is by the execution of these powers,
and of these alone, that Congress is authorized
" to provide for the common defence and general
welfare," and, therefore, when money is applied
to the general welfare, it can only be by appro-
priattons to carry out the objects designated in
the constitution, and to which alone Ccongress is
permitted to apply it. Any other constructiuon
would enable the Federal Government to lay
taxes to an indefinite amount, to be aptfiied to
any purpose whatever, whether constitudtional or
not, and would thas Lterally render it a Govern.
meant without limitation of authority.
It is obvious, therefore, that Congress can
only collect money constitutionally, for the execu-
tion of the federal objects for which the Union
was formed, and that the amount collected should
be regulated by them. It cannot go beyond
those objects, and impose taxes to carry on the
State Governments, in addition to the Federal,
without a most dangerous departure irom the
purposes for which alone it was authorized to es-
tablish a treasury, nor without effectingr, in f. ct, a
complete revolution in the whole structure of our
The question then, is, whether such -. revolu-
tion will be tolerated by the people? The power
of taxation is a great principle of sovereignty
which the States expressly retained to themselves
when they formed the Union. '1 hey never
intended that the Federal Government should be
allowed to tax the people for State purposes of
any kind. Will they now surrender this essen-
tial portion of their sovereignty? Will they now
degrade themselves by having their revenues col-
lected, and their governments carried on by Fede-
ral authority?I Will South Carolina particularly,
sell her principles for a pitiful portion of' the
general plunder of the Nationl Treasury?
Again, if the Federal Government has the
power now contended for at all, it must possess
it to the most unlimited extent. If it can tOx the
people for the. purpose of collecting money for
the States, then the States, if they please, may
abolish all the internal taxes, and carry on their
governments entirely by the employment of the
federal revenue for that object-the mere tax
gatherer of the State, to collect their revenue.
But as it is to be collected fi'om the whole people
of the Union, this system of taxation and disburse-
inent must nccessariiy be unequal, opera'iig bene-
ficiahiy to certain sections, which will p:;y the
least and receive the most, and very oppressively
to others, which will pay most heavily, and re-
ceive comparativwy nothing' in return. Waas the
Fe -eIral Government intended tor such a system
which, instead of collecting money for na'ionl
objects and applying it excuhtiivly to them, co.-
lects money for the Stales, and not only that, but
instead of collecting it from, and dividing it among
them, equally amid impartially, actually proceeds
upon the principle of legislative pillage of some
of them, for the benefit of others, and thus con-
verts the Federal Treasury into an instrument of
rewards and punishments, as'regards the cs-equal
Sovereigns of this cofederated Union?
1 trust thin, that I have proved this bill to be
unconstitutional; but it may not be itii;):-opcr not-
withstanding, to fortify the positions I have endea-
vored to maintain, by adducing in support of
them, the opinions and authority of some of the
most eminent statesmen of the State Rigt1-s
The project of distributing the revenue
amongst the States, is by no means new. It is at
least as old as the time of Mr. Jefferson. During
his administration, a surplus occurred of 14 or 15
mnilioas in the Treasury. He brought the subject
to the special notice of Congress, in his message
of December 2, 1806, in which lie inquired what
should be done with it? and after various sugges-
tions as to the propriety of applying it to pur-
po(-es of internal improvement, education, &s., he
then said, "I suppose an amendment to thile consti-
tution, by consent of the States, 'icfss.r'y; be-
cause the objects recommended are not aiong
those enumerated in the constitution, or to which
it permits the public moneyto be applied." And
in his message of Nov. 8, 1808, advertinig to the
same topic, he said, "Shall it lie unproductive in
the public vaults? Shall the revenue be reduced?"
&c. and concluded by recommending, that if Con-
gress thought a system of internal improvements
proper, heirr time should he employed in obtain-
ing the necessary powers." It is evident, then,
that Mr. Jefferson held, that the surplus revenue
could not be applied to State purposes without an
amendment of the constitution. And if an amend-
ment of the instrument is necessary to enable Con-
gress to make roads and canals in the States, is it
not equally necessary to enable Congress to give
the public money to the States, for the purpose of
Again: the reader doubtless remembers the
celebrated bill (usually called the bonus bill) up-
on which Mr. Madison put his veto, 1817. It was
reported by Mr. Calhoun, who advocated it on
the ground of expediency, and without discussing
the constitutional question. The bill proposed to
set apart, and pledge, as a permanent fund for in-
ternal improvements, the bonus of the national
bank, and the proportion of the dividends belong-
ing to the Government. It also provided that the
said fund should be applied to the construction of

The Indiana Democrat of the 21st inst. continva-
a list of the members of tihe Indiana Legislature,
classed according- to their political predilections.
According to this Statement, the Senate stands 23
Van Buren, 21 Harrison, and 2 doubtful. In the
Iouse, Van Iluren 50, Harrison 44, White 1, Anti-
masonic 1, doubtful 3. The Democrat says: "If
Van Buren obtains one-half of the duub'fuil votes,
hlie wiil have on joint ballot a majority of 8. The
republicans have a larger number in the Legi-a'-
ture this year, than in any year previous. If' the
W'iigs are satisfied with the result of the (lcctijr,
tile keipublicans are equtilly so."
This statement may be, deemed official, as it
comes from the State paper of Indiana. It is not
only satisfactory, but cheering to the democracy
of the country. The fact that without organiza-
tion or concerted effort, the democratic strength
is greater than ever in the Legislature, is confirma-
tion strong that Indiana will give an overwhelming
vote in favor of Van Buren and Johnson.-Louis-

LATER FROM FRANCE.
By the ship Charles Carroll, Capt. Lee, we have
French papers to July 25th. The Commercial
intelig'ence is of some interest. Quite an increas-
ed activity prevailed in cotton.
The Ministers, after consulting with the King,
had decided that no review should take place on
the 29th July. The cause %as understood to b,
the apprehension of further attempts to assassinate
the King. The Journal of Paris, a paper in favor
with the Ministers, says:-
The nation knows well that it is not a few
scoundrels that will prevail against its irrevocable
will. At Paris and at Lyons thflty endeavored to
reduce us to anarchy with arms in their hands, and
were conquered, and it is on that account they
have converted themselves into assassins. A
party which has recourse to such means is forever
lost. It consists of a few men, arrived at the last
stage of desperation. Continual watching, time
and the public horror will c-nvince them of their
weakness. In the meantime prudence is a duty:
it is particularly so for those men who hold the
reigns of Government, and who bear in the eyes
of France and the world, an immense responsi-

An insurrection took place at Malaga on the
night of 'tihe 2 5h of July, *wTio h resulted hiu the
massacre of the Civil and Miiitary Governors of
that city, and the complete triumph of the parti-
sans of M. Mendizabal.
It seems that the partisans of the Royal Statute,
and of the fti.mrner Prime Minister, M. Mendiza-
bal, had respectively made out lists of candidates
of AleprLsenta' ives to the Cortes, which was to
be convCned iii Aug'ust. Ahlthough del'eted in
the capit.zl, the former v.'ere successful in other
towns in the Electoral District. On thi.i news
reaching Malaga, the adherents of Mendizabal
made preparations for a revolutionary movement.
They succeeded in corrupting the military, 800
men, rec.nitly brought to M-alaga to Cause the
authority of the Governors to be respected, who
were both known to be firm supporters of the
Royal Statute, and in consequence had been re-
peatedly insulted by the populace.
On the evening of the 25th, the National
Guards took umbrage at some change, which it
was reported the Military Governor intend,-d to
introduce-reinforced the detachment on duty at
the main guard, and as the crowdsz-egan to collect
in the streets, ordered thegenerale to be beat. The
military Governor, a veteran covered with scars,
whose valor had been often tested in th. field, im-
mediately proceeded to the main guard, ac-
companied only by an aid-de-camp-arnd ex-
claimed, il Gentlemen, what is this? What
is the meaning of such strange proceedings?"
Upon which one of the National Guard, who stood
near himn, presented a pistol, which, however,
flashed in the pan. Pistols do not frighten me,"
exclaimed the veteran, and entering the guard
room, he called loudly for assistance. Some of
the guards immediately levelled their muskets at
him. "National Guards," cried the Governor,
is this the way you reward the victor y I obtained
at Puente de la Reynar?" He was answered by a
aiseharge of muskets, and his body was afterwards
run through in twenty places by the bayonets of
the National Guard.
In the mean time the civil governor, the distin.
guished Count Donadio, hearing the general beat
he repaired to the Convent where the troops were
quartered, and put himself at their head; but it
soon found that they were not to be depended
upon in a contest with the National Guard. And

his country and to himself, and that Upon an
investigation of his actions it would be found
he has not deviated from either, but pursued the
course pointed oitt by his Government. Abiding-
by this rule, it is 110t Surprising he should, in
observing a strict neutrality, have a watchful
eye over the commercial intercourse between the
United States and Mexico, and that he should
sternly uphold the interests of trade.
Upon inquiry, we "have been informed that, at
the request of the master of the Venus, Corn..
Dallas consented to convoy that vessel as far at

In so doing, so far from transcending the line of
duty, he performed the part demanded by his
station, and insw.ad of censure, is entitled to the
thanks of this country, whose greatness and
prosperity essentially depends upon free and un-
obstructed maritime trade. Our citizens, and all
merchants, should rejoice at the spectacle pre-
seated by our government, in upholding the

After Sheridan's entrance on the field of po-
litics and Parliament, he abandoned the comic
muse, a circumstance greatly to be regretted.
Perhaps if Shakspeare or Milton had been so
unfortunate as to attain a teat in the Legislature,
we might never have witnessed Hamlet" and
" Othello;" nor should we have boasted of an epic
poem that justly ranks with the "illiad" and the
"JWneid." Lord Byron, beyond all comparison

the sime day, lie has spoken for several hours in
Westminster Halt, during the course of Hasting's
t'ial, to a most brilliant and highly informed audi-
ence of both sexes, in a manner so impressive, no
less than eloquent, as to extort admiration even
Irom his greatest enemies. Then repairing to the
House of Commons, he has exhibited specimens of
oratory before that assembly equalling those which
lie had displayed in the morning, when addressing
the Peers, as one of Hasting's accusers; while on
the same evening "The Duenna" has been per-
formed at one theatre, and "The School for
Scandal" at the other, to crowded audiences, who
received them with unbounded applause. This is
a species of double triumph, of tne tongue and of
the pen, to which antiquity, Athenian or Roman,
can lay no claim, an I which has no parallel in our
own history. Lord Bo!ingbroke may, perhaps,
form the nearest approach, as he was both an ora-
tor and a writer. So was Burke. Fox himself,
after a life passed in the House of Commons,.
aspired to instruct and to delight by his composk-
tions But not one of the three can sustainra com-
parison with Sheridan, who may be considered in
a comprehensive view, as the most highly endowed
man whom we have beheld in our time.
So far as we are acquainted with the members
elected, and with the political complexion of the
several counties, we feel very confident the ma-
jority in the Legislature for Van Buren, will not
be less than ten, and it may be greater.
In the late election for members of the Legisla-
ture, the Democratic party in several counties
have managed very badly--indeed, they have not
managed at all. In some instances they have had
no candidates in the field; in others, they were not
organized, and permitted White men to be elected
in counties where Van Ilhren is decidedly the
choice of the majority.-Florence (.lla.) Gazette.

Perhaps a majority of our whigr readers do not
kunow that, in his speech at Versa lles, Mr. "Clay,
by inuende, expressed his opposition to Gen. Har-
rison for the Presidency. In the report of his
speech published in the Lexington latelligencer,
tie says' tlit he has "again and again warned his
countrymen of the danger of electing to the
Chief Magistracy, a man possessing no other than
mere military qualification." Is it kind in Mr.
Clay to attempt in this way to deprive the candi- .
