To the last certificate which is given by
Messrs. Irvin, Quigly, Kendrick & Boren,
and one too which is entirely foreign to the
report, I have no recollection of ever using
any such expression, and whether or not
it was concocted by their own imaginations
for political effect, lain willingto leave the
issue with the people. Is it not hypocriti
cal and barefaced effrontery, for those eon
tlemen, to attempt to impress the public
with the belief that their friendship for
(lon. H. is so strong, that they spurn the
idea of reviling his name or character; I
think there is not one of you, but what lias
hurled the torch of slander at the General’s
fame, and would not only wish him out of
the way, but would willingly sec it done.
I frankly acknowledge, that ut one time I !
Was opposed to Gen. Harrison. But mv
Opposition was based entirely upon an ig
norance of his character. This too was
before Gen. H. was taken up by the State
Rights Party as their candidate. 1 bad
hot examined into his claims upon the peo
ple for their support, but bad listened to
the slanderous imputations contained in
Colquitt's circular; since that time howe- j
Vor, I have investigated his public life and
the services which lie has rendered to his !
country, and I am firmly convinced, that
there is no man living, whose long public
life, lias been so closely scrutinized, and
whoso character, as an honest man, and a
statesman is less vulnerable. But again,
to the certificate makers, —admitting I had
used the very language, with which you
have been so wantonly electioneering a
gainst me, does it not show a con
temptible spirit. to say the least of it, for
igfcforable high-minded men, who profess j
to belong to a respectable party, and en
gaged in a cause, which they so zealously
advocate, to catch up the careless ex-j
pressions of men, and place them in the
mouths of your deputed agents, to skulk
stealthily through the country, and retail
them out oftentimes entirely changed, and
all for political effect ! If this is a part of
your political creed, and if you have so
completely exhausted your arguments, in
support of the cause of your leader, as to
resort to this pitiful subterfuge to prop a 1
corrupt dynasty, you had better lower your
colors, withdraw from the contest, or pur
sue a more manly course. I could intro
duce certificates from a dozen men in
town, and who stand as fair in the com
munity tor truth and veracity, as either of |
the gentlemen that have given certificates.
But I deem it unnecessary, I am willing
that the issue should be left with the pen- i
pie. J. N. WINGFIELD.

When the Harrison delegates, who had
arrived in Steubenville, marched out to
meet those from Cadiz, they met a number
of Locofocos coming towards town. The
latter very civilly took one side of the road,
leaving the other side to the Harrison men.
As the latter passed along, a good deal of
sharp shooting took place. One of the lo
coibcos addressing himself to James Y. Se
wali; said, “My horse wanted to join a
Harrison procession, a short distance back,
but I would not let him.” To thisSewall,
without a moment’s hesitation, replied,
“That proves that your horse, like Balaam’s j
ass, was wiser than his master.” The way j
the Harrison men laughed at the retort, was
a caution to the Locofocos.— Pittsburg Ga

(Kr The long agony is over. The
mountain has brought forth a mouse ! The ;
Van Buren folks have returned from the
Indian Springs, not much benefited by the i
waters ! The number present is variously j
estimated, from 3,500 to 12,000 —a wide ]
gap to be sure ! accounted for, on the sup
position, that the water of the springs has a
multiplying effect on the vision ; and some
that tried to count the crowd, saw five or
six when there was only one. Will friend
Haynes, of the Standard, count up the cost,
and tell us how much money was spent
and labor lost, in getting up this Dcmocra- !
tic gorge ?
The Administration Journals, in various
parts of the country, pretend to be in great
fear, lest a civil war should be commenced
by the Whigs, in case their candidate for
the Presidency should be defeated in the
present contest. To deceive their readers
into that belief they quote those expressions
always used by the adherents of political
parties, to encourage each other in the con
test. and pervert every “ Hurra for Harri
son,” into a declaration of war, ominous of
bloodshed and destruction. We should be
willing to leave their false fears unnoticed,
:as idle dreams, did we not see, by the as
j siduity by which they magnify every slight
i expression that drops from a Whig orator |
| or paper, which can possibly be distorted !
into any thing like a confirmation of their
pretended belief, that they themselves
nourish in their hearts the designs which
they attribute to their adversaries. By
these professions of alarm they are paving
the way to civil broil and bloodshed, if they
are defeated, to be commenced by them
selves, and in case their attempts to get
up a civil war are frowned down by an in
dignant people, as they most assuredlv-j
will be, they will produce in justification
these professions of alarm and say, as they
have said before in relation to other of their .
misdoings, “ We did not do it, it was the
rascally Whigs, here are our professions
to prove that we are innocent.”
The President wishing to punish the
States of Rhode Island and Connecticut fin
being Whig, ordered the work upon the
fortifications of their harbors to bo discon
tinued, the Charleston Mercury, an organ
of the Van Buren party, remarks, that us
“the Whigs have proclaimed a determina
tion to get up a civil war, if they fail to
elect Harrison, does it not behoove the
President, like a wise and provident ruler,
to be fortifying the Democratic States a
gainst the threatened explosion of Whig
fury.” As to the first part of this extract,
no such determination has ever been ex
pressed by the Whigs—they had indeed no
occasion to use any such declaration, for
they know that the election of Harrison is
as certain as human affairs cun possibly be.
Mr. Van Buren and his party know it also,
: and therefore we doubt not the true cause
| of the discontinuance of the fortifications is
; told by the Mercury, the president has
withdrawn his servants, to have them in
readiness, like a “ wise and provident ru
ler!” to fortify the Democratic ( Statcs and
retain his power over them at least.
If we are to have a civil war, it will be
commenced by the present administration.
Out of office they must go, and to any
one who has watched their course, the des
perate enmity of some of'their leaders to
all law human and divine, their ready a
doption of the disorganising doctrines of
Brownson, Fanny Wright & Cos., and'the
unscrupulous manner with which they re
sort to the most illegal means to obtain and
retain power, it must be evident that no
considerations of patriotism, religion or i
morality, will prevent them from resorting 1
to the sword to keep possession of the spoils
they have robbed from the people. In one
particular this war if it does come, will lie
ludicrous enough. They will put little
V an in a uniform probably, and the world
I “ ill see him reap laurels as bright as
those he has gained in the Seminole War.
We doubt not he wilt surpass Buonaparte
| if they will keep where he can't, smell “vil
j lanous saltpetre.” Oh. that some Homer
may arise to sing of his valorous deeds !
We have before shown, that the Sub
i Treasury, the favorite scheme of the pres
ent Administration, had little claim to the
character of a Democratic measure. We
will now examine some of the other mea
sures of Mr. \ an Buren and his partv.
W e believe that the federal tendency of
the army project is too self-evident to re
quire demonstration. Mr. Van Buren hav
; mg already got control of the purse of the
nation, has, by this scheme attempted to
possess himself of the sword. This at
-1 tempt however was too open and palpable, |
j the people have become alarmed, and the!
president fearing the result, has attempted
[ to extricate himself from the responsibility
by a piece of the most disgraceful shuffling.
He is however between the horns of a di- j
lemma, he must either deny having recom
mended the plan, (which course he has eho
! sen, and which his own message contra
j diets) or he must acknowledge that ho has j
I recommended what he had never seen.— j
! Either course places him in a most disa- <
I greeable position. We doubt not, if he is j
■ re-elcctcd, this plan will be again revived,
’ and pass into a law “in spite of the lamen
| tations of the people.” The Sub-Treasury
was again and again rejected, yet by the
| pertinacity ofthc executive, it was, at last,
j established. So it will be with this army
| plan, it will he urged until it is carried,
tor this administration may well boast that
the resistance of the people may retard but
j cannot prevent its plans.
Another manner in which the federal
; governmnenthas strengthened its hands is
by the appointment of its officers. The
desire of making and keeping partizans
has been the governing principle of Van
I Buren in the distribution of offices. His
warmest and most unscrupulous supporters’
cannot say that he has followed the Demo
cratic rule of honesty, capability and love
of the Constitution, in seeking for faithful
servants. No ; it has been actually pro-!
ved upon the floor of Congress that lie lias
kept notoriously dishonest defaulters in of
fice because they could control some votes.
Would Jefferson have done so ?
It was file policy of the federalists of for
mer times, to aggrandize the executive
branch ofthe government, at the expense
of the legislative and judiciary; subtracting
i power from the two latter branches to add
:it to the first. We will mention but one re
cent instance of this policy, of the many
which oceured under Messrs. Jackson and
Van Bureri’s s way. Wo refer to the ex- |
pulsion from the House, of the New Jersey
members of Congress, coming with regular
credentials under the great seal of the State,
and duly elected according to the constitu
tion and laws of New Jersey. Yet, at the
(bidding of Mr. Van Buren, his myrmidons
ignominiously ejected these members from
their places to make room for his partizans,
: thereby to secure a majority among the re
presentatives, to carry through his “meas
sure of deliverance and liberty,” and to in
sure his own election should it devolve on
the House. The broad seal of a sovereign
state was treated with a scorn and contempt
which finds no parallel in the history of this
country, and but one in that of England,
when Cromwell entered the House of Com
mons and seized upon the insignia of its au
thority. Carolina, for less cause than
this, was about to resort to arms against
Jackson, yet the country has been compell
ed to remain calmly and supinely looking
upon a daring usurpation of power, com
pared to which Cromwell and Jackson’s
usurpations were but childrens play. Tru
ly the little magician possesses some charm
as potent as the head of Medusa ; he has
changed us, indeed, to stone, if we can
see such things unmoved.
An insidious attempt to curtail the au
thority of the judicial branch of the govern
ment was made by the President during the
session ol 1838 and ’39. In his message to
that session of Congress, speaking of the
case of the United States against Amos Ken
dall, Postmaster General—after saying
that it had resulted in the payment of mon
ies out ofthe Treasury of the United States
by judicial process for the first time since
the establishment ofthe government, he pro
ceeds “ No interference in this particular
case is contemplated. The money has
been paid, and the claims ofthe prosecutors
satisfied : and the whole Subject, so far as
they are concerned, finally disposed of; but
it is on the supposition that the case map be
regarded as the authoritative, exposition ofthc
/aw, as it now exists, that I have thought it
necessary to present it to your consideration;”
I Every one can understand by this, that the
| exposition ofthe law here referred to, is not
| considered by the President authoritative;
although that exposition was made by the
Supreme Court of the United States, and
by recommending the subject to Congress,
lie evidently desires to be freed from the
control w hich the Supreme Court, as the
highest minister of the law, properly ex
ercises over all the citizens ofthe Repub
lic. Indeed, lie afterwards says, “ these
disparaging discrepancies ought not to con- i
tinue, and calls on Congress to provide
A few of the circumstances of the case
which called forth these expressions, arc ne
cessary more fully, to explain this matter to
our readers. Amos Kendall, then Post
master General, having arbitrarily and un
justly refused to pay to Stockton and Stokes,
certain large amounts of money due them
on contracts for carrying the mail, they
applied to Congress for justice, and after :
that body had thoroughly investigated the
subject, a law was passed for their relief. \
The Postmaster absolutely refused to com
ply with the law, and another application
was made to Congress, the matter was re- I
i ferred to the judiciary committee, who re
ported a resolution ordering the money to
be paid, still Amos refused to comply and
an appeal was made to the President, who
refused to interfere ; thus virtually sanc
tioning the misdeeds of his officer. The
subject was then brought before the Su
preme Court. and although the proceedings
were opposed and retarded at every stage,
by the President and Postmaster, that ex
traordinary individual was compelled to i
pay up, by a writ of Mandamus issued by
the Court. On account of being thus con
strained to do justice, the President com- !
plained to Congress, and called on them to ‘
provide a remedy. His intention was evi- j
dently to make himselfand his understrap- 1
pers superior to the law, and to place them
in a situation to defy the mandate of the !
Supreme Court, to which the highest ser- ‘
vants of this people have been heretofore j
amenable. He, himself, in his own opinion,
ought to be made the exponent of our rights; j
and no appeal, but to him, ought to be had
: against the oppression of his officers. Is
not this Federalism of the blackest dye ? J
Will the people beguiled by the cry ofDe- j
mocracy, until the foot of a monarch is on ;
their necks ?

A meeting and discussion by both politi
| cal parties was held in Crawfordville on
| Thursday last.
This meeting is a little remarkable j
as being the. first appearances in the j
counties during the present contest of
the Northern Circuit, of any one of the j
three great unchanged Nullifiers, so lately j
become the well beloved champions of the j
Union Party. Mark A. Cooper, one ofthe !
aforesaid great unchanged, was present,
accompanied by a Mr. Bass, who acted in
the capacity of echo for Mr. Cooper. They
were met with a firm array of talent and j
eloquence on the part ofthe Harrison par
ty, and were signally defeated in their at
tempts to support Van and his administra
tion. In opposition to Messrs. Cooper and ,
Bass, addresses were had from Messrs.’
Miller, Nesbit, and Toombs. We are of
opinion that neither Mr. Cooper nor hisco- !
adjutors, will again attempt to make con
verts in this section after the overthrow lie
received at Crawfordville.
We listened attentively to Mr. Cooper, to
learn the causes of the extraordinary posi
tion ho now stands in, towards that portion
of the people who elected him to Congress,
but no satisfactory reasons were given by
him. He seems to be completely identified
with the Federal party, and has all their
well known cant and abuse ready at his
tongue’s end. We were astonished to hear
him and his Mr. Bass, who seemed to ho a
decent man enough, retailing the affidavits
of Price and Fowler, to prove Gen. Harri-’
son’s federalism; One of their witnesses
is proved by the testimony of many to be a
perjured scoundrel ; and the other. Fowler,
formerly Postmaster at Lexington, Ken.,
was expelled from the office for stealing
the funds of the Department, and has since i
