meaning of these shots, before a volley as
if'from a thousand rifles, was poured in up-
on us from the front, and all along our left
flank. I looked around me, and it seemed
as if I was the only one left standing in
the right wing. Neither could I, until sev-
eral other volleys had been fired at us, see
an enemy-and when I did, I could only
see their heads and arms peering out from
the long grass, far and near, and from be.
hind the pine trees. The ground seemed to
me an open pine barren, no hammock near
that I could see. On our right, and a little
to our rear, was a large pond of water some
distance off. All around us were heavy
pine trees, very open, particularly towards
the left, and abounding with long high
grass. The first fire of the Indians was
the most destructive, seemingly killing or
disabling one half of our men.
We promptly threw ourselves behind,
trees, and opened a sharp fire of musketry,
I, for one, never fired without seeing my
man, that is his head and shoulders:-the
Indians chiefly fired lying or squatting in
the grass. Lieut. Bassinger fired five or
six rounds of cannister from the cannon.
This appeared to frighten the Indians, and
they retreated over a little hill to our left.
As I came out I saw Dr. G. lying strip-
ped amongst the dead. The last I saw of
him whils, living was kneeling behind the
breastwork with two double barrel guns by
him, and he said, "Well, I have got four
barrels for them" Capt. G. after being se-
verely wounded, cried out, "I can give you
no more orders my lads, do your best?" I
last saw a negro, spurn his body, saying
with an oath, "that's one of their officers,"
(G. was dressed in soldier's clothes.)
My comrade and myself got along quite
well until the next day; when we met an
Indian on horseback, and with a rifle com-
ing up the road. Our only chance was to
separate-we did so. I took the right and
he the left of the road. The Indian pursu-
ed him. Shortly afterwards I heard a rifle
shot, and a little after another. I concealed
myself among some scrub and Saw Palme-
to, and after a while saw the Indian pass,
looking for me. Suddenly, however, he
put spurs to his horse, and went off at a
gallop towards the road.
I made something of a circuit before I
struck the beaten track again. That night
I was a good deal annoyed by the wolves.

A TALE OF HORROR.
The following narrative of the massacre
ofCol. DADE and his companions, was ta-
ken down by an officer at 'Tampa Bay from
the lips of Rawson Clarke, one of the three
soldiers who survived that hoi rid butchery.
It first appeared in the Portland Courier.
Although it does not differ materially from
the published accounts, its particularity in-
vests it with a thrilling interest. After de-
scribing the early stages of the march he
It was eight o'clock. Suddenly I heard
a rifle shot in the direction of the advanced
guard, and this was immediately followed
by a musket shot from that quarter. Cap-
tain Fraser had rode by me a moment be-
fore in that direction. I never saw him af-
terwards. I had not time to think of the
to our left. They came on boldly till with-
in a long musket shot, when they spread
themselves from tree to tree to surround us.
We immediately extended as Light Infantry
covering ourselves by the trees and open-
ing a brisk fire from cannon and musketry.
The former I don't think could have done
much mischief, the Indians were so scat-
Capt. Gardner, Lt. Bassinger, and Dr.
Gatlin, were the only officers left unhurt by
the volley which killed Col. Dade. Lt.
Henderson had his left arm broken, but he
continued to load his musket and fire it,
resting on the stump, until he was finally
shot down towards the close of the second
attack, and during the day he kept up his
spirits and cheered the men. Lt. Keyes
had both his arms broken in the first attack
they were bound up and slung in a hand.
kerchief, and he sat for the remainder of
the day, until he was killed, reclining, a.
against the breastwork-his head often repo.
sing upon it-regardless of every thing that
was passing around him.
"Our men were by degrees all cut down.
We had maintained a steady fight from 8
until 2 P. M. or thereabouts, and allowing
three quarters of an hour interval between
the first and second attack, had been pretty
busily engaged for more than 5 hours. Lt.
B. was the only officer left alive, and he se.
verely wounded. He told me as the Indi-
ans approached to lay down and feign my.
selfdead. I looked through the logs and
saw the savages approaching in great num-
bers. A heavy made indian, of middle
stature, painted down to the waist, (corres-
ponding in description to Micanopy) seemed
to be the Chief. He made them a speech,
frequently pointing to the breastwork.-At
length they charged into the work;-there
was none to offer resistance, and they did
not seem to suspect the wounded being alive
-offering no indignity, but stepping about
carefully, quietly stripping off our accou-
trements and carrying away our arms.
They then retired in a body in the direction
from whence they came.
Immediately upon their retreat, forty or
fifty negroes on horseback galloped up and
alighted, tied their beasts, and commenced
with horrid shouts and yells the butchery
of the wounded, together with an indiscrim-
inate plunder, stripping the bodies of the
dead of clothing, watches and money, and
splitting open the heads of all who showed
the least sign of life, with their axes and
knives, and accompanying their bloody
work with obscene and taunting decisions
and with frequent cries of "what have you
got to sell?"
"l,ieut. B., hearing the negroes butcher.
ing the wounded, at length sprang up and
asked them to spare his life. They met
him with the blows of their axes and their
fiendish laughter. Having been wounded
in fivd different places myself, I was pretty
well covered with blood,and two scratches
that I had received in my head gave to me
the appearance of having been shot through
the brain, for the negroes, after catching
me up by the heels, threw me down, saying
"d n him he's dead enough?"
They then stripped me of my clothes,
shoes and hat and left me. After stripping
all the dead in this manner, they trundled
off the cannon in the direction the Indians
had gone, and went away. I saw them
first shoot down the oxen in their geer, and
burn the witon.
One of the other soldiers who escaped,
says they threw the cannon into the pond
and burned its carriage also. Shortly af-
ter the negroes went away, one Wilson: of
Capt. G's company, crept from under some
of the dead bodies, and hardly seemed to he
hurt at all. He asked me to go with him
back to the Fort, and I was going to follow
him, when, as he jumped over the breast-
work, an Indian sprang from behind a tree
and shot him down. I then lay quiet until
9 o'clock that night, when De Cony, the
only living soul beside myself and I, started
upon our journey.- We knew it was near-
est to go to Fort King, but we did not know
the way, and we had seen the enemies re-
treat in that direction.
nence of having done more harm to the lib-
erties, the morals, and the finances of the
community than any that has met, or prob-
ably ever will meet. It is impossible to re-
view their course of action without a min-
gled sentiment of indignation, shame and
disgust. Every day seemed to bring from
Harrisburg, fresh evidence of a total ig-
norance of public duty, a profligate disre-
gard of public principle, a contemptable
pursuit of personal interest, a low indul-
gence of party or individual hatred and an
utter indifference to the opinions and wel-
Lhre oftheir constituents. No London or
Parisian debating club ever exhibited less
deference to the dictates or receipts of order,
decency or truth. They have left unas-
sailed scarcely a single principle or practice
which experience and democracy had con-
firmed in almost universal respect. The
fundamental doctrines of the constitution
they have outraged-the will of the people,
legally ascertained and announced, they
they have affected to despise and set aside

on the subject of the Bank, they have fraud-
ulently overreached and endeavored per,
manentlv to control-the sanctity of private

alter taking upon itself the preliminary ar-
rangements, has delayed and postponed the
final arrangements for'thirteen months to
come. The reasons for this delay,--the
motives for this disregard of[the popular
will, unprecedented in the annals of Ameri-
ca, not being set forth by the Legislature
we can judge of them only by analagous
and circumstantial evidence, a kind of evi-
dence in such cases, the very best known
A case analagous is that to be found in
the history of the same party, then acting
on a similar questiun-the constitution of
the United States: The same party as is
proved--not by any of its titles, Federal,
Whig or National Republican,-but by its
principles-principles which declare for the
few in preference to the many-a-which claim
exclusive rights-and sanction and defend
monied monopolies. This party it was,
which in the convention at Annapolis, and
afterward at Philadelphia, confined itselfto
a course of obstruction and delay to every
thing proposed, with the view of preventing
a government which it foresaw would be

conduct at Tippecanoe. He had command-
ed upon that occasion as brave men as ever
went into the field of battle; men who, if
they had had a proper commander, would
have shed a ray of glory on the country.
The commander, however according to the
report of the times, trusting upon the faith
of an Indian Chief had allowed his army
to be'drawn into a position in which it re-
quired the greatest bravery to prevent their
entire overthrow. On that occasion, Ken-
tucky lost many of her bravest sons, and
among them the name of Joseph Daviess
will always be deplored. He was among
those who fell on that occasion, and- Ken-
tucky was still mourning his loss. His
impetuosity led him in the midst of danger
and slaughter; and in the language of a
great poet he rushed. into the field, and fore.
most, fighting, fell. Again at Sandusky,
and the defence at fort Stevenson where
was General Harrison? Where was lie
when this little band were surrounded by
an enemy? He was at the head of an ef-
fective army, yet he lea one hundred and
fifty devoted patriots to defend themselves
against a superiorenemy. He had ordered
them to retreat, and according to the letter
of Governor Duncan of Illinois, he had
piled up his provisions and munitions of war
to burn them and retreat with his whole
force, thus leaving an extensive frontier open
to the enemy and their savage allies. But
the bravery and intrepidity ofChrogan and
his little band prevented this, and thus raise.
ed the reputation of our troops. According
to the same letter, when the cannon was
heard, he observed, their blood be on their
own shoulders. Does the gentleman from
Kentucky (Mr. Hardin) think that this is
spending his prime of life amidst fire and
smoke? for. he appears to rest his whole
claim upon that, and not his competency or
qualification for that high station. Again
at the river Raisin, was General Harrison
there in the midst of fire and smoke as his
colleague (Mr. Hardin) had said? He was
not very distant, but he did not come to the
rescue. Mr. H. remembers to have heard
it said, but does not vouch for it, that when
the express from the battte reached Frank.
fort, the theatre was in session; and there
was scarcely a being in that spacious es.
tablishment but had lost some relative or
friend. Kentucky was put in morning from
one end to the other. The blood that was
spilled on that occasion flowed from the veins
of Kentucky's choicest spirits. Years after
their bones still bleached on that fatal field
of slaughter, and stood as a lasting monu-
ment of the ill starred and unfortunate con-
duct of the commanding General. Was he
in fire and smoke on that occasion? No he
was not; and the spirit of the brave, of our
Allen, our Hart, our Simms, and the many
others who died for their country, will rise
up and proclaim that he was not in the midst
of the fire and smoke which enveloped
their manly forms on that trying and heart
Mr. H. again asked where was Mr. Har-
din's fire-and smoke hero, athe battle of ihe
Thames? There was one in that hall who
was truly amidst fire and smoke and death
and blood. And yet his colleague prefer-
red the commander who was in the rear,
out of danger, and out of fire and smoke.
Mr. H. here read extracts from the letter
of General Harrison, where he had repre-
sented to the War Department, that dismay
and disinclination to the service pervaded
the western country. He also read an ex-
tract where he said the Ohio militia were not
to be depended on. He pronounced this a
slander on Ohio: Hle also read an extract
where he (General Harrison) said that good
militia might be had from Kentucky, provi-.
ded they wtere permitt-d to fight on horse-
back. Mr. H. contended that the Ken-
tuckians were brave individually or collec-
tively, whether on foot or on horseback,
and repelled the insinuation, which might
be drawn from the letter, that on foot the
people of Kentucky were not good soldiers,
and ready to defend their country at all
From the Globe.
We invite public attention to the subjoin-
ed amendment or section offered by Mr.
Wright concerning the temporary invest-
ment of any surplus funds in the Treasury,
after all the intended appropriations shall
It ably follows up the suggestion on this
subject in the last annual report of the Se-
cretary of the Treasury. It will, if adopted,
tend to produce these results:
1. All the money in the Treasury not
wanted to meet appropriations, and to rein-
der the operations of the Department easy
and prompt, will thus be put on interest at
the market rate.
2. All questions about the large sums in
the daposite banks, and its unequal distribu-
tion, and the small or large interest they
should pay, wiil thus be avoided, as the sur-
plus will be taken out of these banks and
put on interest at the market rate.
3. All complaints as to its not being laid
out or distributed equally, or being employ-
ed for political objects, will then have not
even "the baseless fabric of a vision" to rest
4. In this way the people will realize an
income from all the surplus, tiUl our present
financial system shall become more settled,
and Congress can see whether the surplus
will be needed by the General Government
or not, if not needed, it will be then time to
make some final disposition of it.
We are gratified to see that the sugges-
tion of the Secretary of the Treasury, not
to make the deposit banks borrowers, and
to authorize an investment of any real sur-
plus, so as to draw proper interest till the
money is wanted, is one likely to be carried
into effect, as no possible objection to this
measure can, we think, be made from any
DISPOSITION OF THE PUBLIC RE-
SEC. I I. Arid be it further eiacled, That
the Commissioners of the Sinking Fund be
hereby authorized and directed, at the com-
mencement of every quarter of the year, to
examine into the condition of the Treasury,
and the probable amount of receipts and ex-
penditures during that quarter; and if, in
their opinion, the money in the Treasury
during the quarter will generally exceed, or
fall short of, seven millions of dollars, it
shall be their duty to cause the sum equal
in the former case to the supposed excess, to
be drawn out of the Treasury and invested
in some s ife stock or stocks in the name
and behalf of the United States; and in the
latter case to order a sale or sales of such
part or portion of any such stocks owned by
the United States, as will produce a suffici-
ent sum to make up the supposed deficiency,
the proceeds whereof shall be paid into the
SEC. 12. And be itAfrther enacted, That
said Commissioners of the Sinking Fund.
shall be governed, in making such invest-
ments or sales, by the current and customa-.
ry prices of stocks in the commercial ciffes
of the United States ; and in their purchases
said Commissioners shall give preference
to such stocks whose payment is guaran-
teed by some State, if the rate of interest
upon the sum proposed to be invested will
probably b2 as favorable. And at the com-
mencement of every year, said Commission-
ers shall make a detailed report to congress
of all their doings and proceedings under
the provisions ofthis act.

Instructions from the betrayed constituents
of these men were hooted at by them ; and
to shut the doors of the ALegislature, and

A step of considerable moment was made
in the Senate on Wednesday towards the
suppression of small notes, and the promo-
tion of specie currency. It was in the adop-
tion of Mr. Benton's amendment to the Pen-
sion Bill, modified on the motion of Mr.
Niles, so as to prevent any note from being
offered in payment, by the United States or
Post Office Department, of less denomina-
tion than ten dollars, from and after the
passage of the bill, and less than twenty
dollars from and after the 3d day of March
next; nor any note of any denomination
which should not be payable and paid, on
de.nand, in gold or silver, at the place
where issued, and which should not be
equivalent to specie at the place where of-
fered, and convertible upon the spot into
gold or silver, at the will of the holder, and
without loss or delay to him. These im-
portant provisions, though put in an appro-
priation bill, are general and permanent,
and were adopted by general consent, and
without a division, in the Senate. The con-
currence of the House only is wanting to
make them a part of the act to be laid before

The other candidate for the Presidency
nominated at Baltimore in May last by th
democracy of the Union, is
MARTIN VAN BUREN.
H1e being the democratic candidate, it be
comes our especial duty to examine hi
claims to-our support, more especially as
has been resolved by a meeting held at thi
place at March court, that "To palm Mar
-tin Van Buren on the country as the deme
cratic candidate is a base fraud on the de
mocratic party." In reply to this resolu
tion, and to every other false and fraud
lently resolution coming, and to come, w
submit the following evidence-from whici
it will be seen that there was but one pos
sible case of fraud in the matter and tha
was, to have nominated him as the candi
date of the federal bank party.
1 "The first active participation of Mr. Vax
Buren, was in the great contest which pre
ceded the election of Thomas Jefferson t(
the Presidency in 1801, whose administra
ltion received, during its whole course, his
'' unremitting support. Neither the contime
ly ofinflated wealth, nor the weekly revil
wings of a licentious press could awe his
t.eal into silence, or soften it to moderation.'
"in 1807, and again in 1810, he voted foi

Sdiemocratic party, and faithful organ of its
sentiments. "In Ibllt, when application
was made to the legislature of New York,

occasion required,the ready writer-prompt

pose firm-inflexible in his principles. He

bills and reports-drew the state papers, es-

Judge, has said, upon the one hand, tha
i 0UZThe public safety is the supreme law
.LllDand upon the other hand, that O -th
repeal of a law in the nature of a contract
cannot divest rights under that contract.li
then~rcsuch judge has placed himself i
a dilemma from which all the ingenuity o
the legal profession-a profession more re
markable for sharpening the intellect than
enlarging and liberalizing the understanding
cannot extricate him. Here for instance
is the public safety on the one hand, and
the Monster bank-or, if you please, an
Agrarian law, on the other,by which,in the
case of the bank, we are sold to the monied
aristocracy for thirty, or thirty thousand
years, (for this the contract doctrine admits)
and in the Agrarian case, our property is
contracted away for the same length of
time-the contract is good and we are with-
out remedy according to the bank logic..40
The law of reason, which seems to be
thrown out of our code in these latter days,
is that when two principles, by any sort of
legislative or judicial hocus pocus, are
brought into conflict,Jcythat the lesser
must give way to the greater, and the pub.
lie safety, in all cases, be recognized as the
When the public safety is endangered by a
law, the legislature must be held competent
to repeal that law, tho' it be a bank contract
-a contract, not like those for the usufruct
of lands, which is all of that article-top or
bottom, which the power of man can ap-
propriate, and which, depending on labor
for its value, is, like labor itself, beyond the
control of the apprehended Agrarian law;
neither is a bank contract like a contract
for building roads, bridges, canals, or any
of the patriotic purposes for which the
people have use-but a bank contract is a
fraud upon its face a fraud by which the
aristocracy are enabled to swindle us out of
our bread, that they may wallow in wealth
and idleness, and rule us by seducing our
representatives and printers with loans:-
And thus the legislature of 1785 must have
viewed the bank contract which they re-

The laboring man, whether employed in
agriculture or manufactures, is deeply pre.
judiced by the banking system. The prices
of labor, bread, and clothing are generally,
but erroneously, supposed to move hand in
hand,-to rise and fall together as the cur-
rency increases or diminishes. This theory,
however true, when limited to a single coun-
try, and as regards bread and clothing, is
experimentally known to be false so far as
relates to the price of labor. The theory
holds good for all three so far as this-that
every man able to labor, enters the field of
competition against his fellow to reduce
the prices; while, on the other hand every
bank note enters the field of circulation,
not to reduce prices, but to increase them,
it thus results,-that the price of labor,

prolific as banking itself, is thus left plod-

sing an opinion that in'case the Legislatu
of Pennsylvadia should instruct their Sen
tors to vote against Col Benton's expungil
resolution, we "should not, under any ci
cumstances, recognize" this instruction.
Entertaining, as I do, the highest respe
both for your patriotism and your judgme
it is with unaffected regret that 1 feel m
self constrained to dissent from this opir
There are some political principles of
character so sacred, that we ought nev
even think of sacrificing them at the shrill
of expediency. You will agree with m
that of these no one deserves to occupy
higher rank, than that the public vwi
ought to be obeyed by the public servant, (
he ought to resign his trust. This is
principle which I adopted in my ear
youth. "It has grown with my growth at
strengthened with my strength." All r
experience has convinced me, that the saf
ty of the people demands that this ru
should be inflexibly obeyed by all the
Representatives.-The sentiments which
expressed upon this subject, in my letter 1
the democratic members of the Legislatui
at the time of my election to the Senat
were only the repetition of opinions which
had a hundred times expressed before.
This principle of obedience or resignation
is the very key stone of the arch, which
indissolubly unites together the democracy
of all the States of the Union. However
divided it may sometimes have been o
other questions, on this there has been a
entire unanimity of opinion.
Is this then a moment when a Pennsylvw
nia Senator, elected by a democratic Legi
lature, should do any act which, in il
consequences, might shake this adamantin
foundation? We have just witnessed in o0
State the effect which has been produce
by disobedience of the public will. A va
monied institution,which we all believed t
be dangerous to the rights and liberties (
the people of the whole Union, and which
had been condemned by a large majority
of the People of Pennsylvania, has jus
been chartered for a period of thirty year
by our State Legislature. If the Republi
can party justly believed that, as a Natior
al Institution, it was fraught with danger
to the people of all the States; how muc
more alarming ought it to be to the people
of a single state, within which all its enex
gies and all its influence are now concern
treated? If the power of the General Gov
ernment, united with the well deserved pop
ularity of General Jackson, could scarcely
make head against it, what will be our con
edition in Pennsylvania with a State admin
istration devoted to its interests.
At the present crisis we have nothing t(
rely upon but a strict adherence to the prin
ciples and usages of the democratic party
For the sake of any temporary advantage
no public servant should even think of be
trying the great cause of liberty into th(
hands of power. If we all act upon thii
principle we have nothing to fear. Th(
free and manly spirit of the people; th<
deep conviction which is every where fel
that the approaching contest will be i
struggle for life or for death and that th(
democracy must either triumph over th(
Bank, or the Bank must crush the Democ-
racy, will ensure us a glorious victory.
I believe with you that the present Legis
lature of Pennsylvania will not speak the
voice of the people of the State, should
they instruct me to vote against the expun.
aging resolution. You will readily perceive
however, that if the Senator himself is tc
be made the judge, if his opinion, as to
what may be the people's will, is to deter-
nine his obedience or disobedience to Leg-
slative instructions; the right itself rests
ipon his own discretion, and might as well
it once be abandoned. The conduct of the
Senators who have been so loudly condem-
ued by the Democratic party throughout
he Union, for acting upon this principle
s at once justified, and we must retract all
we have said against the course they
ave pursued. We must do more. We
nust virtually determine that no Senator
rom Pennsylvania can ever be instructed
because our Territory is so extensive and
)ur population so numerous, that it is al-
nost impossible for a majority of the whole
peoplee ever in this form to communicate
heir will to their Senators.
There may possibly be extreme cases, as
have intimated in my letter to the Demo-
ratic members of the Legislature, in which
he Senator, in order to avert a great pub-
ic evil, might be justified in deciding that
he Legislature had violated the will of the
peoplee in voting him instructions. I do
lot now say that such cases might or
night not exist; but certainly the present is
ot one of them. My vote can neither pass
or defeat the expunging resolutions, at the
resent session. Besides, the voice of the
imerican people has doomed that resolution
fthe Senate condemning President Jackson
hall be expunged; and whether the actual
process shall be performed during the pres-
nt or the next year, is not a matter of any
Again, I am proud to say, that I have
acquired some little character, with the De-
ocracy of the other twenty-three States
this Union. However small this may
e, yet it is still dear to me, and I wish to
reserve it. They are not familiarly ac.
uainted, as we are, with the local politics
f Pennsylvania. They have already seen
hat our House of Representatives have
passed the Instructions by a vote of 64 to
5; and they will probably pass the Senate
y a large majority. If I shall neither
field obedience to these instructions, nor
sign, I will be placed in the same list, in
heirestimation, with those Senators who
ave felt it to be their duty to disegard in-
ly before the people of the state, at their
next general election, whether, what I be-
lieve to be, the unconstitutional and unjust
resolution of condemnation, against the Pre-
sident, for one of the most meritorious acts
of his long and useful life, shall or shall not
beexpunged from the Journals of the Senate.
To obey or to resign, is then my fixed
determination. Should I adopt the former
course, I shall declare at the time I give
my vote, that I do it merely as an agent in
obedience to legislative instructions, and
against my own opinion.
If I consult my own feelings I shall re-
sign. A public man in his public conduct,
ought not only to be chaste, but unsuspect-
ed. I should be sorry to have it even sus-
pected by any citizen of my native state
that I was capable of clinging to an office
however high and honorable, for a moment
longer, than I could retain it, without the
sacrifice of any principle. Which of the
two alternatives I shall finally adopt I have
not yet fully determined. When the prop-
er time arrives, I shall be prepared to act
promptly and decidedly.
I herewith transmit to you an extract of
my letter to the democratic members of our
legislature, dated on the 22d day of De-
cember, lN34, containing that part of it
which relates to the subject of instructions.
Sincerely hoping that the sentiments
which I have expressed may meet your ap-
probation, and declaring most unfeignedly,
that I shall place a high value upon it,
I remain very repectfully,
Your obedient servant,
Extract of a letter addressed by Mr. Buch-
anan, to Jacob Kern, Esq. and others,
democratic members of the legislature of
Pennsylvania, on the 22d day of Decem-
Although you have not asked me for any
pledge or promise relating to my course m
the Senate, yet I am sensible that many of
you desire I should express my opinion pub-
licly in regard to the right of legislative'in-
1 shall do so with the utmost frankness.
On this question I have not and nevy have
had any serious difficulties. The Iight re-
sults from the very nature of our institutions.
The will of the people when fully and fairly
expressed, ought to be obeyed by all their
political agents. This is the very nature
and essence of a representative democracy.
Without entering intoan argument upon
the general question, which would be alto-
gether misplaced upon the present occasion
it may not be'improper to observe that the
principle applies with redoubled force to
Senators in Congress. They represent the
sovereign states who are the parties to the
constitutional compact which called the
Federal Union into existence. In the Sen.
ate these states are represented as distinct
communities, each entitled to the same
number of votes, without regard to their
population. In that body they are all equals
as they were before the adoption of the Fed-
eral constitution. Here, emphatically, if
any where, the voice of the states ought to
e heard, and Qught to be obeyed. Shall it
hen be said that a senator possesses the con.
stitutional right to violate the express instrie-
ions of the sovereign state which he iepre.

vhich have been conferred upon him for the
benefitt of his constituents,in a tnanner which
hey have solemnly declared to be r~'uitas
o their intests9or dangerous to their' ib-
rties. The bare statement of the propoi-
ion carries conviction to my mind. All r
early all the state legislatures have long
een in the practice of instructing their
senators, and this affords the strongest evi,
ence of the correctness of the prineip~
pon which this custom rests. / .
It has been objected that the right iof'n,
truction might destroy the tenure of the -
enatorial office, and render it subject to all
ie political fluctuations in the several states.
lut the Senator is only bound to obey: be
s not called upon to resign. And although
here may be circumstances in which a rtan
f honor might feel himself constrained: to
tire from the public service rather than
ive the vote of his state against his own
convictions, yet these cases must, from their
ature, be of rare occurrence.
Besides, this objection implies an entire
rant of confidence in the state legislatures.
t supposes that they may become theinstru-
nents of faction for the purpose of harrasn-
ig senators and compelling them toa,

If it should ever clearly appear, in any
ise, that the immediate representatives of
re people have not obeyed their will in vo-

eption to the general rule. Such an occur-
ence however, though possible, is 'highly
probable. It is not to be presumed that
he state legislatures will exercise import-
nt power unless upon grave and solemn
ecasions, after mature deliberation, and a

FOURTH OF JULY.
S iLet not' be forgotten that a meeting of demo-
cratei desired at Mr. Nagle's this evening, for the
p pose of making arrangements to celebrate the
National Jubilee. From present appearances it is
almost certain that it will be one of the most mag-
nicfient ceebrations ever witnessed in Pennsylvania.
Every d~a*crat who wishes well to the thorough
a. adp -rite organization of the party, will not fail'

Tie democrats of this county understand the
questions now at issue before the people. We
publish the proceedings of their late meeting entire
from the unaual collection of facts embodied in
the ddro. Much labor and research have been
devoted to ~ect ofthe deepest interest.
S : FACTS.
Foi months were occupied by the late session
ofthe legislature, and one hundred laws less than
sual wee passed. We find on examination that
the expense of the session was over $100,000 ifi-
stead of $62,000, as we stated some time ago. This
time and this large sum of money were expended

from all which have gone before.
The same system may be expected to govern at
the extra session. For the purpose of securing
their power, they will district the state so as to neu.

their fers of the abridgment of the executive tern
operated strongly upon them in occasioning the de
lay. They knew that Gov. Ritner was elected by
a minority vote, and were apprehensive that if the
constitution were speedily altered, he would be turn
ed out before the expiration of three years. Thei
objection to obeying the decision at the last election
upon the question of reform, arose from their fea
pf the people and a determination to defeat thei
will. T' -wey Uill eventually find to their cost that i
'i no pleasant affair to triflewith the people.
THE RIGHT OF INSTRUCTION.

of the fourth ward, Spring Garden, on the subject
of instructions. His views are highly creditabLl

taken to keep the canal full of water as the river

FEDERAL MISRULE AED FOREIGN IN
e The great aim of the federal party in the United
- States, at all times, and under all administrations
r has been to filch from the people their rights an
n vest them in the government. The cardinal politi
r cal maxim of this party is that "government should
r be strong," and of consequence the people weak
.t One of its favorite branches of power is the judi
ciary. So desirous is federalism of "peace and
good order," that we have no doubt it would b
willing to yield every political right into the hand
Sof a servile judiciary. This department, according
n to federal notions, is the sheet anchor of liberty.
t In pursuance of general federal policy, to put th
, judiciary beyond the reach of the people, and ti
" surrender to it all power, the last legislature of thi
s commonwealth passed a most degrading act. It i
y well known to our readers that in 1810, an act wa
,' passed entitled "an act to prohibit in courts of ju
e tice the reading or quoting of British precedent
r- subsequent to the 4th of July 1776." This act wa
THE PUBLIC WORKS.
We hear much complaint of the evils arising
from the appointment of incompetent officers upon
the public improvements. A universal clear out
has been made of all the agents appointed under the
late administration. Of this however, we see no
particular cause of complaint. Though it is the act
of a party which has expressed great abhorrence at
such policy, it should be viewed as the fortune of
war, as one of the natural consequences of defeat,
and practised by no party more extensively, than by
the federalists who unfortunately have the present
possession of the government of the state. What
we object to is, that when the besom was used for
the purpose of making room for the famished sup-
porters of the present governor, more pains had not
been taken to select individuals qualified for dis-
charging the duties belonging to the stations as-
signed them. The question of competency seems
not to be considered by the existing administration
in filling the executive appointments. If an appli-
cant can show that he has been a zealous Ritner
man and is friendly to Harrison and the U. S. Bank,
nothing further is required.
All parties should endeavor to foster the great
leading interests of the state. Among these the
public improvements of late, have become pre-emi-
nent. Pennsylvania has taken the lead in cherish-
ing the liberal spirit of the age, and has nearly per-
fected a gigantic system, which under a discreet
supervision,must add incalculably to her wealthand
population, and place her at the head of the confed-
eracy. It is to this system that we must look for
the means of extinguishing the state debt, and it
behooves every good citizen to aid in extendingits
repute, and in carrying out the great design for
which it was created. An enlighted and vigilant
policy in the conduct of this system, is also of the
utmost importance-any other must, in a great
measure defeat its usefulness.
Such has not been the policy adopted by Gov.
Ritner, nor could it be expected of a man so desti-
tute of every qualification for the office of chief
magistrate as he is known to be. A greater calam-
tiy could scarce have befallen the state at this criti-
cal moment, when the value of the improvement
system was about to be tested, than the election of
a Governor, ignorant, bigotted, imbecile, vindictive
and incapable of comprehending those expansive
views of enlightened state policy, so necessary to be
well understood by the executive of a great and
flourishing commonwealth. Instead of having a
governor adequate to the management of the com-
plicated affairs of the state, possessing wisdom, gen-
erosity, firmness and patriotism, it is our misfortune
to be under the dominion of one whose qualities
are the opposite of these, who is used as the mere
puppet ofa cabal of old federalists, demagogues and
adventureres, and whose own volition is never ap-
parent except in stolid acts reversed by his friends,
or in the out breaking of petty revenge, permitted
by his keepers that he may not be aware of his
The canal board,with possibly one exception, is
made up of weak incompetent men, the very coun-
terparts of his excellency. They are equally saga-
cious in their appointments, so that "like master
like man" prevails throughout, from Gov. Ritner,
down to his lock tenders and car oilers. Many of
these agents have been taken from counties remote
from the public works, and as'the change has been
universal, the canals are in the hands of men who
learn all at the expense of the state. The conse-
quences are such as might have been easily fore-
seen. There is no order, system or skill in their
management. Breaches have occurred in many
places for tlhwant of precautionary care, the water
has been drawn from levels where inconsiderable
repairs could have been made with the water in,
which, together with other causes of the same ori-
gin, have occasioned much delay in transportation
and otherwise operated to the prejudice of the pub-
As to the branch canals the management has
been worse upon them, than upon the main line.

s DEMOCRATIC VICTORIES.
s. In all quarters, where the test of public senti
;s ment is made at the polls, the democracy is tri
is umphant. We have not heard of a single election
ed and operating to make the rich richer and the
poor poorer. Who, in this country, will be willing
to surrender the decision of their rights to the No-
bility of England,men frequently appointed to office
on acconnt of their servile submission to the "pow-
ers that be ?" Who will not blush to see Chief
Justice Marshall, Chancellor Kent, Judges M'Kean
and Tilghman,placed in subjugation to Lord Lough-
borough, Lord Kenyon, Lord Eldon, Lord Alvan-
ley, Lord Ellenborough, Lord Lyndhurst, Lord
Brougham, Sir Charles Abbot, Knight of the garter,
Sir John Bayley, Knight of the garter, Lord
George Holroyd Knight,Sir William Draper,Knight
of the King's royal garter, Sir Joseph Littledale
Knight of the Bath, The Right Honorable Sir Nich-
olas Tindel, Knight, Lord Tenterden, et cetera, et
cetera ? Yet the repealing act drawn up by Thad-
deus Stevens, passed by our federal legislature and
signed by Joseph Ritner, actually introduces the
decisions of these Lords, Knights and Right Honor-
ables of England, and makes them authority which
our republican courts are bound to obey.
Every body knows that the original principles of
the common law, were drawn from England, and
that so far as the exposition of them is involved,we
must refer to the early English books of reports and
text books; but it is not necessary to refer to Eng-
lish decisions since that time-we have better deci-
sions of our own. The nature of the two govern-
ments is so dissimilar, as to make it impossible to
harmonize the adjudications of the courts under the
different systems. One system will trammel the
other in process of time, and it is easy to see that
the Lords and Knights of England will gain the as-
cendancy, if they are rendered binding authority in
our republican courts. Our independence of that
government is merely nominal, when we give its
oppressive laws full force and authority among us.
Our fathers thought they had done much tow-
ards securing the freedom of their children, when
they had excluded from our courts the authority of
the British Judges, but the rich federalists who han-
ker after the aristocratic institutions of Great Brit-
ain, have reduced us again to British bondage.-
They have given us a British bank of thirty-five
millions for thirty years-they have introduced
the decisions of British courts-they have directed
our judges to look to the Lords of England for the
law, and if the people let them appoint the Judges,
we shall soon have a bench of British Judges in
Pennsylvania,dispensing law and justice to freemen,
and measuring out their rights. This day is fast
approaching. We shall be ground down in the
same state of slavery, as oppresses the laboring
classes of the British nation, unless we rise in our
might, and hurl the present federal tyrants from
Democrats, unite together and at once buckle on
your armour, prepare for the struggle, and in this
crisis act as becomes men, ready to make all sac-
rifices in defence of their assaulted rights. Go to
the ballot boxes and proclaim your detestation of
poisonous monopolies, British Ministers and their
slavish imitators. If you will maintain your free-
dom, you must resist oppression at the threshold.
When the news of the establishment of a branch
of the United States Bank in Erie, arrived at that
place, the federal whigs testified their joy by firing
one hundred guns, and proceeding immediately to
the formation of a state rights" party. They
talk loudly of New York influence, and pronounce
every enemy of the Bank, an emissary of the Alba-
ny Regency, employed to convert Pennsylvania in-
to a province of New York. Thus do the enemies
of democracy every where rally around the foreign
monopoly, and strive to identify its interests with
the interests of the commonwealth.
The bank whigs are striving to gain friends by
creating sectional jealousy, and imputing the oppo-
sition to the bank, to New York influence. Why
not ascribe this opposition also to Virginia influ-
ence ? The democracy of Virginia have taken a
much more decided stand against the bank, than
in any other state. It is made a leading test ques-
tion at the elections now going forward, on the pre-
samption that branches will be asked for. All
the banking capital of Virginia does not amount to
one-fifth of the capital of the U. S. Bank alone.-
The democracy of that patriotic State have set an
example on this subject worthy the imitation of all
others. They are uncompromisingly hostile to the
U. S. Bank, and will go as far as the democrats of
has suffered in that state in consequence of their
ultra opposition to monopolies. This assertion is
quoted with particular complacency by the hank
Chroncle, who calls our especial attention to it, as
evidence that the people are taking sides with mo-
nopolies-their deadly enemy-the artifices by
which the rich and the aristocratic concentrate their
power, and act together against equal rights. The
friendship of this Ohio editor, has doubtless been
bought with facilities, by the great banking trust
company of that state. Better evidence than his
naked assertions must be adduced before we can be-
lieve that the democracy of Ohio have turned trai-
tors to their own freedom. The fall elections will
show which side the democrats are on.
YOUNG MENS CONVENTION.
The following is a list of delegates already ap-
pointed to the young men's democratic state Con-
vention, to meet at this place on the 4th of July.
Calls for primary meetings have been made in ma-
ny other counties, and from general appearances
we entertain no doubt but every county will be fully
represented. There is no disposition in any part
of the great democratic family of the state, to shrink
from responsibility, or to leave undone any thing
calculated more effectually to secure the triumph
once more in Pennsylvania, of the principles and
measures of democratic freedom ahd equality. The
reign of monopoly federalism is destined to be short-

The Chronicle discourses right eloquently in
- the cause of the Bank, and is exceedingly prolific
in the use of those Billinghgate tropes and figures
usually employed by the Swiss advocates of that
corrupt institution. In the last number, the dem-
ocratic candidate for the Presidency, Mr. Bucih-
anan and Mr. Miller share'liberally in its malevo-
lent warfare against the party which it pretends
to support. If the Chronicle will display its true
colours and raise the names of ;the federal bank
candidates,Harrison and.Granger, in place of Van
Buren and Johnson, it will remove the glaring de-
ception attempted to be practised upon the com.
munity, and deprive its allies of the advantage of
quoting its bank articles as from a democratic
paper. It is impossible that the Chronicle can be
sincere in supporting Mr. Van Buren, who has
declared his "uncompromising hostility" against
the institution it is bound to advocate ; and besides
this, the democracy of Pennsylvania want no as-
sistance from the bank whigs in regaining their
ascendancy at the fall elections. Waging war
under false colours as little better than piracy.
We hope the Chronicle will persevere no longer in
such a disreputable practice.
The attack upon Mr. Miller, who left Washing-
ton very unwell, returned home for the purpose of
regaining his health by exercise and relaxation
from business, and has been confined we have been
told by severe- indisposition since his return, was
very unmanly and little calculated to assist
Mr. Penrose in whose defence the attack was
embodied. We do not envy the feelings or vener.
ate the principles of an editor, who will permit
such heartless assaults to be made through col-
umns under his control.
We pass this matter over without further com,
ment, to notice a long article under the editorial
head, in which the editor, or writer, strives hard
to prove that none of the objections against the
Bank, as a national institution, are of any weight
in proving it to be dangerous under a recharter
from the State. When these objections arelfairly
stated, they operate against it precisely with ten
fold force as a State institution, and all arguments
to prove the contrary are made up of sheer sophis.

Republics have fallen: we are admonish-
Sed by their misfortunes to guard with jeal-
e ousy the glorious constitutions of govern.
Sent which the valor of our ancestors won,
Sand their wisdom established. The liberty
f of nations has sunk in a blaze of expiring
glory-and "freedom shrieked when Kusci.
osko fell." I trust that our institutions may
never perish, but if we must suffer the fate
of other nations, may our latter end be as
glorious as theirs. We should have the
consolation to know that if we fell, we fell
without dishonor. But how MOURNFUL
AND DEGRADING will be our fate, if we
should sink into the arms of SORDID AV-
ARICE, AND SUFFER our LIBERTIES
to be locked up in the vaults of the miser.
We should be happy to hear from the editor of
the Chronicle, how an institution, possessing the
fearful powers here so eloquently portrayed, able
to cope with the general government, convulsing
the whole Union, blighting at its will the prosper-
ity of this State, subjecting the freedom of the press
to its control, can be less dangerous, less to be
feared, or less powerful when confined to the lim-
its of Pennsylvania, which possesses but a tenth
of the national population. The truth is, there is
no explanation which can solve such a palpable ab.
suridity, and if the democracy of the Union wer- i
justifiable in attempting to put down the Bank on 1
the ground of its endangering the existence of our
government, the democracy of Pennsylvania are t
vastly more interested in its destruction, and can
never rest a moment in conscious security,until this
monstrous grant to foreign monopolists is annul.
led, and their fearful combination annihilated. As
to the power of repealing the charter, it resides in
the people, and will be by them exercised, or their
liberties are gone forever. This is easily proved 1
even from the lips of many of the recreant sena-
tors themselves, who with the editor of the Chron"
icle found the arts of the bank in "seducing the a
venal" too powerful to be resisted.
An error occurred in publishing the pro-
ceedings of the Young Men's meeting in
this paper last week. In the resolutions re-
questing the proceedings to be published, by
some means or other the Bank's 'Chronicle,'
was inserted instead of "Reporter." The
young men of Mifflin county do not ask
any such favors of the Chronicle. The Re-
porter is requested to notice the mistake.--
