Patent Piano Fortes.
INHOMAS C. LOUD, No. 306 Chesnut street, (op-
posite Girard Row,) manufacturer and has for
sale, at his Piano Forte and Music Store, Thomas
Loud's newly invented Patent Grand Action Piano
Fortes, with front regulation, including the classes of
uhis Patent Braced Detached Metallic Plate Piano
Fortes, and his improved Patent Compensation Tube
Piano Fortes, with Metallic Supporting Brace.
The Patent Grand Action, as introduced into these
Piano Fortes, possesses the important improvement of
front regulation,without the use of the inclined plane
method of relieving the hammer, common in English
grand action, and consequently without the dull and
sluggish effect of touch attendant upon such a motion.
rhe tones produced are very fill and prompt,and are
capable of every variation of power to the most deli-
ate- -the touch is light and free, and the action is of
the most durable character, with metallic centres in
ill its parts.
The Patent Detached Metallic Plate Is an improve-
ment that adds considerably to the volume and purity
of the tone, and is of immense strength; and by is
arrangement relieves the case or wood work of the
Piano Forte from most of the strain from the tension
of the springs.,
The Patent Compensation Tube Piano Forte,as now
improved,with four tubes,and the metallic supporting
brace,is considered the most perfect support known in
Piano Fortes. In this arrangement, the whole of the
HE following Case is perhaps the most extraor-
dinary upon record of a cure of Pulmonary Con-
sumption; yet such is the almost uniform effect of Dr.
H. H. HIGBEE'S REMEDY FOR PULMONARY
DISEASES in Consumption, Asthma, 4-c. --c.
New Hanover, Burlington Co., N J.
August 10th, 1835.
I do hereby certify that I have been lor many years
afflicted with cough and pain in my breast, attended
with expectoration of large quantities of blood and
matter from my lungs, and I finally became so bad as
to be confined to my bed. I had hectic fever with
night sweats, diarrhea, great emaciation, constant
cough; and every one who saw me-believed that I was
in the last stage of consumption, and had no expecta-
tion that I would be any better. I was attended b)
Dr. H. H. HIGBEE, and through the medicine pre-
pared and presented by him, I was restored to health
from my apparently desperate situation, and i:ave
since had no return of the pulmonary symptoms.
January 30th, 1837.
I, Lydia Haviland, the person above named, at this
date still continue free from my former disease. I
now reside in Wright's town, Burlington county,New
Jersey, and am ready to answer any inquiries which
may be made concerning my former disease, and Dr.
Higbee's medicine, which cured me.

BENJ. R. SMITH,
B Y virtue of a decree of Harford county court,
will be sold on SATURDAY, the 25th No-
vetiber, 1837, at Donahoo's Tavern, in Havie-de-
Grace, Md., a parcel of land, containing about 15
ACRES, being part of a tract of land called Rupal-
ta. This parcel of land is situated near Havre-de-
Grace, and immediately on the Western shore of
the Susquehanna river. The Canal now making
will probably pass through it, and in such an event
this property must be immensely valuable. It now
has one of the best Fishing Shores on the Susque-
hanna river, and as a Fishery is very valuable; .but
if the Canal passes through it, the value will be in-
calculably increased by its possessing a Cove, near
Havre-de-Grace, which forms the only natural
harbor for Boats, Rafts, &c. in the vicinity. -.119
As this property mustbe sold in compliance with
the decree, there is none perhaps in the whole
country which is a fairer subject of speculation.-
As a Fishery, it would indemnify a purchaser at a
high price, and if the Canal is made through it, its
value will be equal to any on the whole line of that
The Terms of Sale, prescribed by the decree,
are that one-third of the purchase money be paid in
cash on the day of sale, one-third thereof in six
months, and the residue in 12 months after the sale,

We publish to-day the first number of a series
able papers upon the Sub-Treasury System, which
is recommended to the careful attention of ot
readers. They will find that this method of kee
ing the revenue, is far from being the "untried e3
periment" against which the opposition are so lot
in their railings, and other interesting historic
facts are shown by the "Plain Citizen" which a
equally important in the present situation of affair
The writer of these papers is thoroughly conversai
with his subject, and treats it in the clearest ar
most forcible manner.
We stated a few days since, that in New Yoi
S democracy had been temporarily borne down by
torrent of calumny, and we have now an opporti
nity of presenting from the speech of Mr. Willia
B. Reed, made at a late federal town meeting in th
city, a syllabus of the species of miserable abuse wil
which we are assailed. This speech, we leai
from the papers, was deliberately prepared for pu
location, and therefore no injustice is done its authi
by assuming that he at least said as much as
here set down. We know not what are the canor
of decency and fair dealing in the federal rank
nor how far their speakers and writers may go will
out sinning against propriety and justice; but th
we do know, that if any member of the democratic
party had so far forgotten himself as to assail th
members of the party to which Mr William B. Ree
belongs, with but a tythe of the coarse virulence
which he employs-had any one of them charge
his opponents with being "wilful appropriators
other people's property to their own use," with bein
larcenists, felons, and robbers-he would have bee
compelled to seek another medium for publishin
his sentiments than this or any other democrat:
press. It is, however, the fashion with Bankism I
indulge in this style of vituperation-.we have ha
it from Mr Biddle's Princeton Oration, down to th
speech of William B. Reed, and we must say tha
it comes with the worst grace possible from th
friends of those very institutions which at th
moment refuse to perform their "promises to pay,
and not long since announced their determination
not to do so until Congress yielded to their arrow
gant demands. If there are any "who are wilfi
appropriators of other people's property to their ow
use," they certainly are not democrats nor democrat
tic institutions. But to the speech:
"But Loco Focoism -Sir-that ugly word-ftl
last specimen from the new political vocabulary
Ii has had, and will continue to have, a great an
active agency. Though it is not a phrase very si
nificant in itself, yet the people begin to understand
its scope and meaning.-Agrarianism and radical
ism are its synonymes,-all mean one and the sam
"-thing. There is (said Mr Reed) a certain melar
choly vehicle familiar to the eyes of all who wal
the streets of our city, which is periodically drive
from the Moyamensing prison to the door of oc
criminal courts, freighted with those deluded ind
viduals who are addicted to the wilful appropriatio
of other people's property to their own use-th
perpetrators of what the law knows and punishes a
larcenies and robberies, and other varieties of fele
nious acts. This is LOcO Focoism in the cor
crete-this is Agrarianism illustrated by wood cut
-practical radicalism in its homeliest form, am
most ragged garb. No where have these doc
tries of violation to the rights of property, and th
varied tenure by which it is enjoyed, been more uc
blushingly avowed, and more insolently obtrude
than in New York. No where las it now beec
more emphatically condemned, or more opprobri
ously punished... Nor ought this to surprise us-
for more than any state in this, confederacy doe
New York depend on confidence-on credit in it
true and legitimate sense-on security of property
on the wages of industry. Hers is the Empire o
Enterprize; and could any sober and reflecting min
admit even the possibility of the suicide which th
sanction of radical destructiveness would hayv
implied. There is no more pestilent heresy taugh
or authorized; none less suited to our institution
and habits than that which arms the poor against
the rich-and raises the hand of violence against
the security of property. Property in America i
the fruit of laborious industry, and nothing more
It secures no immunity-confers no privilege-per
petuates no superiority-for not more than the laps(
of one generation is requisite by our statutes of dis
tribution, to leave the children as poor as was th(
parent, when his industry began to earn its recom
pense. It is the aim of,radical agrarianism-o
what as represented by the President and his confi
dential advisers is known by the appellation o
Loco Fecoism, to wring these fruits from the hard
hand of industry-to make labor profitless, and" t
say to the agriculturist, and the mechanic, and the
merchant, that his honest acquisitions are not hii
own, because they bear the name of property, and
that the security by which those acquisitions are
held, whether by charters or otherwise, is to be de.
stroyed-as a fraud on that class of thriftless partizans
and itinerant politicians, who in the new catalogue
pass for the democracy of the land. It is thest
doctrines and these practices that the people of New
York have now and for ever repudiated."
There are in every community "individuals whc
are addicted to the appropriation of other people's
property to their own use;" but we are yet to learn
that more of them belong to one party than to
another, or that their laxity of morals arises from
their adherence to any political creed-nor do we
see that carrying out the principles of democracy, or
-"loco-focoism," as Mr. Reed has it, renders the in-
dividual more liable to be conveyed to "Moyamen-
sing prison in certain melancholy vehicle" than
if he were a Bankite federalist of the first water.
The principles of democracy are founded upon
.,the broad basis ofjustice. Instead of seeking to de-
fraud any, it contends for equal rights and that
large liberty which wars against every species of go-

To the Edito..s of the Pennsylvanian:
1,4tuRisaunG, Wednesday, Nov. 15.
Gentlemen -The Convention took up the s
c.n'd section of the Report on Education, in t!
words fllhwing, viz:
S "The Arts and Sciences shall be promoted
such institutions as m.ay be alike open to
children of the commonwealth."
Mr Chandler, of Philadelphia, spoke in favor
education, and of the adoption of the section. 1
offered as an amendment, a provision for establish
ing a Board of Education, to be composed of one
- moro Commissioners, elected by the Legislature,
Shave charge of Schools and School Funds.
he Mr Clake, of Indiana, thought it better not
,- give the Board the charge of School Funds; that I
he longed to the Legislature. He thought there w
Y force in the argument that we should not make t
he radical changes, lest the people would not susta
Mr Agnew, of Beaver, was the decided friend
Education; but he looked to the facts before us---a
of the rejection of the school law by nearly one-thi
ect of the districts in the State, and the strong minor
, opposed to it in the remaining districts. If w
3k, pushed the matter too far, we should be like tl
nd dog which dropped the meat and grasped at tl
Mr Flemming, of Lycoming, thought there w
of no necessity of providing for a Board or Superi
ch tendant of Education in the Constitution; that ms
rter might properly be left to the Legislature.
u Mr Sill, of Erie, advocated the amendment
SMr Chandler, as tending to secure a proper atte.
t ion to the cause of Education.
al Mr Stevens would vote for the amendment b
cause a good one. He denied that the fear of cau
r ing the rejection of other amendments was a pr
s. per motive for the action of statesmen. To h
it mind, amendments on this subject were more it
id portant than on any other. He objected to tl
doctrine that a representative should conform
the will of ignorant constituents.
Mr Dickey was opposed to the amendment, b
rk cause it was an innovation on the present scho
system, and because it was entirely useless, the L
a gislature having now all the power we proposed
u- give them.
m Mr Earle said, in allusion to an intimation tha
is the reformers were unwilling to trust the people
th that they were willing to trust them; they were w
rn ling to leave the cause of education in their hand
S be! ieving it would be sustained; but others dare n
trust the people, and hence were anxious to impo
Or a positive command on them to do what they
is ready had power to do.
ns Mr Dunlop moved to amend so as to have tl
s, Commissioner or Commissioners of Education a'
h pointed by the Governer, instead of the Legislatur
which was lost; the conservatives generally votir
Sin the affirmative. Ayes 30; Noes 91.
ic Mr Ingersoll said this was the first time that th
e subject was ever acted on in a Convention of Peni
d sylvania. He'thought it as properly pertained i
ce the constitution as the militia, corporations, &c.-
]d He thought a thorough system would be acceptab
S to the people; a Superintendant of schools instes
of creating expense, would save many thousands

n qualified for teachers, and this should be the obje

ic The question was then taken on Mr Chandler
to amendment establishing a Board of Education, at

Sas calculated to lower the present standard of edt

Mr Stevens expressed a similar opinion.
- Mr Craig thought manual labor schools not lik

n education in them was more imperfect, yet moi
a- economical, they ought to be encouraged to a ce
tain extent. He did not propose to prevent othi
seminaries. He thought manual labor calculate

THE tVORCE BILL--No. 1.
To the Editor of /he Pennsylvanian:
The postponement to the next session of Cot
;e- gress of the Divorce Bill, the only project of M
lie Van Buren's administration which has no: becon
a- law, was made with the professed object of en
in, bling the members to consult the wishes of the
all constituents. I am not disposed to question th
motive; though I am glad that the representatives
of our Pennsylvania democracy did not need a resc
le to it; for on matters of importance, I would rath
h. that public opinion should always, if possible, pr
or cede legislation. It is this, which, in my judgmer
to forms the chief value of an active and unrestricted
press. In the anonymous debates for which it su
to plies the forum, all the parties meet on equal tern
be. and he who has the best of the argument may hop
as for victory, however humble his claims to person
.in With the view, therefore, of eliciting inquiry, at
as the result may be, of either reforming my ov
of judgment, or directing the judgment of others, I pu
-to pose, with yonr leave, to submit a few thoughts
rd the bill in question, through the medium of yo
ity newspaper. The history of our legislation respect
we ing the safe keeping and disbursement of the pub:
he funds, may serve for an introduction to the su
By the act of Congress of July, 1789, the fit
as law in our statute book, it was made the duty
n the collectors of the customs to receive them in go
.t- or silver coin, and to "pay them over to the order
the officer who should be authorized to direct tl
of same;" and by the act establishing the Treasury d
n apartment, passed in September of the same yet
the Treasurer of the United States was required
"e- receive and keep" the public moneys, and to di
burse them on warrants signed by the Secretary, am
o- countersigned and recorded by other officers of tl
is department. By the act of 1800, a similar dispose
n- tion was made of the funds which might be receive
he from the sale of lands.
to The first Bank of the United States was charte
ed in the year 1791, but no change was made
;0 that time in the mode of receiving, safe-keeping, i
e- disbursing the revenues of the government. Nit
to years afterwards, the collectors at six of the princip
ports were directed to deposit their duty bonds
at the bank for collection; the proceeds, however, sti
e, remaining subject to the checks of those officers, am
ls, therefore as fully under their control, as if the bonm
ot had been paid at the desk of the Custom House.
se This was the arrangement from the first orgar
al- zation of the Government till the year 1816, a p
riod of more than twenty-seven years. The publ
he moneys, collected in the first instance by variot
Officers, remained in their possession, either as cas
Ig in hand or cash in bank, until passed over into t1
actual custody of the Treasurer of the Unite
is States, and were then applied by him to the uses
n- the country, in such manner as was directed by tt
to warrants of the Secretary. The old bank, which
ie was in existence from 1791 to 1811, had no clai
id to be a depository either of the government or i
of officers, and was not required to perform any of ti
all duties of a fiscal agent. The officers of the Un
ct ted States received, kept, and disbursed the money
S of the nation, sometimes employing for these pu
Spouses the agency of one or another bank, sometime
dispensing with such agency altogether.
id In 1816, the late Bank of the United Stat
be was incorporated by Cohgress. The embarras
n1- merits of the country growing out of an expensip
and wasting conflict with England, and the heavy
a loans made by the local banks to the Governmen
had compelled those institutions to suspend pay
ments in specie; and the country was deluged i
e- consequence with paper money, equally irredeema
he ble with that under which we are now suffering
re generally more depreciated, and probably moi
r- worthless. The credit system had pervaded all tt
,d transactions of society; even the Government ha
a been compelled by its necessities to accept a cu
s. rency of broken promises as the only means ofpn
- hiding for the common defence, and the state banli
o- had thus virtually become at once the loan officer
it and depositories of the nation.
e. By the charter of the new bank, a fiscal agency
n was constituted for the first time, legally indeper
dent in some degree of Government officers.
k- was made the general depository until the Secretar
o- of the Treasury should direct otherwise,-its note
g were declared receivable in all payments to th
United States-and in return, it was required t
transfer the public funds from one quarter of th
n country to another, and to act as commissioner a
a loans, free of charge. The payment of its note
and deposits in specie was ordained under heavy
it penalties; and to enable it to comply with this it
e. junction, Congress a few days after the chart
ot passed a declaratory resolution, that from and aft(
e an early day, before which the bank was not rn
>- quired to begin its operations, nothing but speci
n or its equivalent should be received in payment
S, to the Government.
d This was the first legalized experiment of a di
rect connexion between the Government and
s, Bank. It is foreign to my purpose to consider
how fully the evils predicted of it at the -outse
a were realized in its progress, and how signal ha
been the popular judgement of its failure. Th
experiment terminated in 1832. The Secretary o
the Treasury, acting under a provision in its char
n ter, withdrew from the bank its functions as a pub
lie depository, and conferred them on a limited
n number of banks incorporated by the States. The
d act of Congress of June, 1836, followed, establish
e ing a system of depositories, all of them banks,-
s and thus began the second legalized experiment o
e placing the Government funds in the hands of meo
e ney-traders, to be loaned out by them for their own
S The fifth section of this act directed that no banl
Should be continued as a place of deposit of the
I public money, if it should cease to redeem its notes
f in specie on demand. In less than eleven month
f this contingency occurred; the banks uniiversally
Suspended payments-the deposit system was bro-
r ken up-and in the absence of any legal provision
directly otherwise, the different collectors of the re
venue became as matter of course the depositories o
all moneys in their hands.
S Such was the state of things when Congress as-
Ssembled last September, in special session. The
I utter failure of the system which had been labori-
t ously matured the year before, and the admitted face
That the different receiving offices were imperfectly
f fitted by their organisation for the duty of perma.
nent depositories, formed naturally a prominent
topic in the President's Message, and seemed tc
call strongly for the action of Congress.
There were three projects discussed in that bo-
Sdy. The first, a National Bank; the second, a
f modification of the Deposite Bank system; the
third, a recurrence with additional guards and se-
curities to the plan of 1789. Of these, Mr. Ser.
r geant and Mr. Webster were advocates for the first;
SMr. Rives, of the Senate, presented the second; and
THE VICE PRESIDENT'S LATE VISIT.
Col. Richard M. Johnson arrived in this city on
Friday last, and took lodgings at the North A me-
r. rican Hotel. During the evening of that day, he
ne was visited by a vast concourse of citizens, his per-
a- sonal and political friends, who were highly grati-
-ir fled to find that the veteran enjoyed his usual ex-
lis cellent health, and commanded his fine and bouy-
of ant spirit. Those who had never enjoyed his ac-
quaintance, and consequently were never brought
4rt within the sphere of an attraction, which springs
er from a kind and noble nature, united to frank and
re- open manners, were delighted with their reception,
it, and severally departed reluctant to relinquish so so-
ed cial and agreeable a companionship.
On the next day, (Saturday) in company with
P his friend Col. John Thompson, from Southwark-
as, that pillar of Democracy-time-honored, but yel
pe erect and firm, and several other gentlemen, he
al visited the Navy Yard, and was received by the
gallant commander of the station, Commodore
nd Charles Stewart, and his officers, under a salute
of thirteen guns. After a tour of observation

S The Vice President, as he trod the deck of that

of Keystone of the Federal Arch-PzNxsyLvANIA,
he expressed his high gratification-his exulting sense
e- of pride and pleasure, in beholding so superb and
or, gigantic a specimen of the naval architecture of so
to young, yet so vast a Republic.
After leaving the Yard, he proceeded to the de-
s pot at the corner of Ninth and Green streets, and
id took passage in the cars for Norristown, and there
he spent the remainder of the day. He was visited
si. by a vast number of citizens, all of whom were re-
ed ceived with that urbane and polished courtesy
which so pre-eminently distinguishes him. In the
evening, he met his democratic friends at Hola.
r- han's Hotel, Chesnut street, where he received a
at most enthusiastic and heart-warm welcome from
or crowds of his fellow citizens of the city and county
ie of Philadelphia. On Monday he visited Mana-
al yunk, surveying the Factories and other objects of

reaching the city in time to meet the afternoon line

Convention of Business men.
Pursuant to adjournment and special notice, the
delegates appointed by the several States to attend
the general convention of business men, convened
in the Universalist Church, in Callowhill street,
Philadelphia, November 15, 1837, at 10 o'clock
The convention was called to order by the Pre-
sident, William Halsey, Esq., of Newark, New
t Jersey-and as it appeared that a large number of
Delegates had not arrived, and that they were ex-
pected in the city this afternoon-and it being con-
ceded that the room in which the convention was
Held in August last, would be sufficiently large to
accommodate all the attending delegates, it was

F noon at 4 o'clock, at the United States District
i Court room; it having been ascertained that the
said room could be readily obtained.
Wednesday Afternoon, 4 o'clock.
The convention met pursuant to adjournment
at the United States Circuit Court room, and pro-
Sceeded to business.
In the temporary absence of Mr D. M, Keim,
one of the Secretaries an election for an additional
Secretary, pro tern, was decided on, and J. S.
Jones was duly elected; when, on motion, it was
resolved that the credentials of all new members be
presented to the convention, instead of being sub-
mitted, as had been suggested, to a special commit-
One of the Secretaries, Mr R. M. Stratton, of
New York, then proceeded to read the credentials
of the new members.
Considerable discussion arose on the subject of
admitting delegates from several associations not
supposed to be duly empowered or qualified to elect
delegates. Several speakers took part in tit de.
bate and explanations were given which induced
the mover of the motion to withdraw his objec-
tions. The Philadelphia delegation, including
f those appointed by the town meeting, as well as
the associations, was unanimously accepted.
The following resolution was submitted by
Arnold Buffum, of Philadelphia:
Resolved, That a committee of two delegates
From each State be forthwith elected, to prepare an
address to the citizens of the United States, in re-
lation to the objects of this convention, to be pub-
lished in connection with the official proceedings.
A question arising as to whether the committee
Sof two, from each State represented, should be ap-
t pointed by the President or by the convention,it was
decided that the appointment be made by the Pre-
sident, by a vote of 52 to 17. On motion it was
resolved that the President of the convention be
added; which stands as follows:

Wakeman, of New York-
Resolved, That in order to accomplish the great
objects which'originallyinduced this convention to
assemble, and especially to provide a preventative
against the recurrence of the public calamities to
Which the country is subjected, and to protect the
great interests of the business classes and of the
community, it is expedient to continue this conven-
tion by adjournment, from time to time, and to
extend its organization.
The following resolution was offered by F. C.
f Tredwell, of Brooklyn, N. J.
Resolved, That this convention recommend to
the Congress of the United States to discontinue
the sale of public lands; to have the same surveyed
and laid off in lots of about forty or fifty acres
each; and that one such lot be given to each
person, who shall cultivate it and make a perma-
nent settlement thereon.
That all persons who shall take up their resi-
dence on such lots, on entering their intentions at
the nearest land office, shall be entitled to a certi-
ficate of such entry; and at the expiration of five
years from that time, shall receive a deed of such
lot, provided they shall have continued to reside
on and cultivate the same during that period.
Aliens, who may desire to become citizens of
the United States, may take possession of and
enter lots as aforesaid: and on receiving deeds of
their lots at the expiration of five years, may

within the bar, was adopted, with but a single dis

Credentials ot delegates from the agricultural so-
ciety ot Delaware, were presented and accepted.
Mr. Brothers, of Pennsylvania. asked permission
to read a memorial, to be presented by this conven-
tion to the Congress of the United S ates, on the sub-
ject of abolishing the paper currency of the country.
The memorial having been read and a motion made
to lay it on the table, the chair decided that it did not
come within the jurisdiction of the convention, and
that it was out ot order to receive it at all. This de.
cision was appealed from; and alter considerable dis-
cussion, in which several of the delegates took part,
the question was put, when the decision ot the chair,
reflecting the matter of Mr. Brothers, w a sustained,E
by a vote ot 42 to 17.
Mr. Bakewpll offered a resolution, asking for a
committee to devise some efficient mena ,i nhini.
mtA here It is $9 a 0 60, to say the least. In Bal-
timore wheat sold last week at fully two dollars a
bushel, here it cannot be bought under that price.
Rye has sold very extensively here at 125 cents for
56 lb.. and corn would readily command 1121
cents. We believe the opinion of the dealers is that
lower prices are not to be expected before spring,
and that high prices will be established, unless kept
dowu by large importations from abroad. There is
no chance that foreign importations will be large
enough to depress the market materially. All that
is expected from them is to prevent a much further
advance. Foreign merchants may therefore calcu-
late with confidence on present prices, at least, and
if only care be taken in putting wheat or other
grain on ship board, in good order, it will arrive
here so without injury. German -wheat has estab-
lished a high reputation with our millers,and would,
at any time, command the highest market rates. As
to Rye, it is wanted chiefly for the distillers, and so
turns to little real good. But the worms of the
stills must be kept running,f.r men will have whis-
key, whether their families, or even themselves,have
bread or not. Sorry as we are for the necessity
whieh exists, that necessity will make us glad to
see foreign bread stuffs coming again freely into our
ports. The Baltic Sea will be closed too soon for
many shipments on advices not sent out; but in
the ports of England there are great quantities
stored in bond, and from other countries accessible
through the Mediterranean, the winter will not pre-
vent the movement of commerce.

on the 4th of March next, who will have the in-
terests of the democratic party in view, and who
will vote in accordance with the resolutions re-
ferred to above.
Resolved, That we fully believe the retaining in
office our open, avowed, and active political ene-
mies, is highly prejudicial to the democratic cause;
creating division in our ranks, and greatly weak-
ening our confidence in the purity of intentions of
the nominating and confirming powers. That we
further believe a strict adherence to the examples
and recommendations of the Father of his Coun-
try, the immortal Washington, of rotation in of-
ort somuchminwea tend fwo term system, would
greauy tenu uo-rusiui idst c ....r- -^,
port so much weakened from the want of a due
adherence to those good old republican principles,
that all life offices are repugnant to true demo.
cratic republicanism, and only suited to monarch.
cal and despotic governments.
Resolved, That the proceedings of this meeting
be published in the democratic papers.
On motion, adjourned.
