DISCOVERY OF AMERICA BY THE
There is certainly much reason to sup
pose that this Continent had been visited by
some of the Northern nations of Europe,
prior to the time of Columbus, and long be
fore the revival of the subject by the Royal
Danish Society, whose publications in re
lation to it are looked for with much inter
est. Many learned men had expressed
their belief in such a circumstance. Dr.
Franklin, in a letter to M. de Gebclin, says:
‘‘lf any Phoenicians arrived in I
should rather think that it was not by the
accident of a storm, but in the course of
their long and adventurous voyages ; and
‘ that they coasted from Denmark and Nor
way over to Greenland, and down south
ward by Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, &o.
to New England, as the Danes themselves
certainly did some ages before Columbus.”
PLAIN REASONS WHY
MARTIN VAN BUREN
SHOULD NOT Bl! RE-ELECTED
President of the United States.
Because the same party leaders avow
yet another object, fearful and revolution
ary, to follow all the other schemes, which
is, the ABOLITION OF THE LAWB RELATING TO
THE DESCENT OF PROPERTY.
Hear Mr. Brownson, the editor of the
same Review, and a prominent leader Os the
Van Buren party in Massachusetts:
“ Following the destruction of banks,

cannot specify them all ; we, therefore, se
lect only one, the greatest of them all—the
privilege which some have of being born
rich, while others are born poor. It will be
seen at once that we allude to the hereditary
descent of property, an anomaly in our a-
MF.RICAN SYSTEM, WHICH MUST BE REMOVED,
OR THE SYSTEM ITSELF WILL BE DESTROYED.”

defrayed in the purchase of British, French

years in an attempt to “ reform the curren

Van Buren, the author of the mischief, tur

gy, that “ it is not the duty of the govern
ment to regulate the currency.”
The great increase of banks since 1833,
was occasioned by the measures of the go
vernment. Secretaries Taney and Wood
bury’s circulars prove this. The three
new mints coined, in three years altogeth

at New Orleans every ten cent piece coined
costs thirty cents. See Returns, of the Mint

expenditure of the government from an

See the case of Commodore Elliot. For
the most gross misconduct, the court mar
tial sentenced him to a deprivation of pay
and emoluments for two years, &c. The
President REMITS this penalty, and apo
logizes for the conduct of the Commodore on
all the charges upon which he was con
victed, except that of inflicting a greater
number of lashes on the sailors than the
law allowed ! He is silent as to this—thus
showing his contempt and disregard for
those in humble life, and favoritism to those
who have influence with the party. And

condemned to receive 120 lashes. Mr. Van

Eleven pence a day, and the hard-money
system will bringdown wages to that sum.
Wheat will also come down to sixteen
cents a bushel, and every thing else in
proportion. This is the best tariff you can
have, and the only one that can enable the
manufacturer to compete with England.
The Sub-Treasury will effect both these
objects; it will put down the banks, and
bring wages and every thing else down.”
VAN BUREN’S SUPPORT OF THE
A recent letter from Gen. Erastus Root
of New-York, who was in the Senate of that
State in 1812, with Martin Van Buren, puts
the natter of the latter’s support of Dewitt
Clinton, beyond a doubt. The following
is the General’s letter:
“Delhi, N. Y., Sept. 19, 1840.
“You say they [the loeofbeos] hold on to
the present so called Democratic Van Bu
ren party believing that they (their princi
ples) are the old republican principles for
which we used to contend. I presume they
have not thoroughly examined and scruti
nized the official acts of Mr. Van Buren
since he came into high power, and compa
red them with the republican principles for
which wekused to contend. Had they thus
examined, and made such comparison, their
good seuso would have led them to discov
er that his conduct was not highly demo
cratic in its character. His urging through
the Sub-Treasury scheme after it had been
condemned by General Jackson and the
whole republican party, was enough to o
verthrow every pretension to democracy.
“ Y ou ask whether Van Buren supported
Clinton against Madison in 1812. Surely
he did. That is a matter of record. The
electors of President and Vice President
were then chosen by the Legislature. He
and I ncre then Senators. We opposed
each other, and in some instances quite se
riously. I was for Madison, the regularly
nominated Republican candidate. Our
acts arc recorded on the journal, and have
often been published. Gen. Ogle, in his
late spiich on the palace furniture, has
given very correct sketch of this trans
“ The friends of Harrison are rapidly
increasing in this county and State. This
State will give him at least twenty thou
sand majority. If Pennsylvania goes for
Harrison, (and I have no doubt she will,)
Van Bfiren will not get sixty electoral
votes. His friends, it appears to me, can
have no reasonable hopes of his election.”
GEN. HARRISON AND THE FARM
There Ims been so much wastefulness,
corruption, and bad management in the
National Administration for the last four
years that the people have made up their
minds to try a man from among themselves,
a practical and patriotic farmer. Hear
what Gen. Harrison said of the farming in
terest on the floor of Congress fourteen
years ago :
“ The policy of the country was, in his
opinion,to remove,if possible,the di fiiculties
with which the farmers of the country now
have to struggle. He was a farmer himself
and he spoke of those difficulties as one
who had experienced them. He was a far
mer alone. He did not own a Bank share
in the world, nor had a farthing invested
in the mercantile business; but depended
alone on the cultivation of the earth for the
support of a large family. He felt a kin
dred interest in the welfare of the agricul
tural class.”— Augusta Chronicle.
GEN. HARRISON’S OPINIONS OF A
We ask our good locofoco friends who
did not understand Gen. Harrison rightly
on this subject,to read the following extract
from his Drayton Speech.
My opinion of the power of Congress to
charter a National Bank remains uncharo
ged. There is not in the Constitution any
express grant of power for such purpose,
and it could never he constitutional to exer
cise that power, save in the event, the pow
ers granted to Congress could not be
carried into effect without resorting to such
an Applause.) Mr.Madison sign
ed the law creating a National Bank, be
cause lie thought that the revenues of the
country could not be collected or disbursed
to the best advantage without the interpo
sition of such an establishment. I said in
my letter to Sherrod Williams, that if it
was plain that the revenues of the Union
could only be collected and disbursed in
the most effectual way by means of a Bank
and if I was clearly of opinion that the ma
jority ofthe people of the United States de
sired such an institution, then, and then on
ly, would I sign a bill going to charter a
Bank. (Shouts ofapplause.)

GENERAL HARRISON’S OPINIONS
OF THE ABOLITIONISTS.
In a speech, delivered at Vincennes, Indiana,
(when General Harrison was before the people
as a candidate for the Presidency,) speaking ol
the abolitionists, he says :
“ I have now, fellow-citizens, a few words
more to say on another subject, ami which is, in
my opinion, of more importance than any other
that is now in the course of discussion in any
part of the Union. 1 allude to the societies
which have been formed, and the movements of
certain individuals, in some of the States, in rela
tion to a portion of the population in others. The
conduct of these persons is the most dangerous,
because their object is masked under the garb ol
disinterestedness and benevole'nce; and their
course vindicated by arguments and propositions
which in the abstract no one can deny. But,
however fascinating may be the dress with which
their schemes are presented to their fellow
citizens, with whatever purity of intention they
may have been tunned and sustained, they will
be found to carry in their train mischief to the
whole Union, and horrors to a large portion of it
which it is probable some of the projectors, and
many of their supporters, have never thought of;
the latter, the first in the series of evils which are
to spring from this source, are such as you have
read of to have been perpetrated on the fair plains
of Italy and Gaul by the Scythian hordes of
Atilla and Alaric ; and such as most of you ap
prehended upon that memorable night, when the
tomahawks and war-clubs of the followers of Tc
cumseh were rattling in your suburbs. I regard
pot the disavowals of any such intentions upon
the part of the authors of these schemes, since,
upon the examination of the publications which
have been made, they will be found to contain
every fact and every argument which would have
been used if such had Been their objects. lam

these deluded men, and there are few within the
bounds ofthe State. If there are any, 1 would

career, and deliberately consider the conse

the States more immediately interested, and to
those for whose benefit they profess to act. That
the latter will be the victims ofthe weak, injudi
cious, presumptuous, and unconstitutional efforts
to serve them, a thorough examination ofthe sub
ject must convince them. The struggle (and
struggle there must be) may commence with

with more firmly riveting the chains, or in the
utter extirpation of those whose cause they ad
vocate. Ain I wrong, fellow-citizens, in apply

MR. VAN BUREN’S STANDING ARMY.
When it was determined by the present Admi

men, an order was given to a German house in
this city [New York] to import from Europe
plates of the several uniforms worn by the offi
cers and soldiers of the European troops. This
order has been complied with, and the plates are
now'in this city. We are told that the Secre
tary of War has promised to authorize someone
to ascertain if the order lias been faithfully exe
cuted, from which it would appear that the Admi
nistration have not abandoned the scheme of a
large standing army.

Carious Law Case. —A case was tried re
cently at New Orleans, as we learn from

ownership of six geese. So contradictory
was the evidence, that the venerable judge,
in order to settle the question, ordered the
geese to he turned into the street, and ap
pointed two officers of the Court to watch
their motions. If the geese went to the
house of plaintiff he was to be considered
the owner; if to the defendant, then the
case was to be decided in defendant’s favor.
The geese, on being let out, made their way
to a neighboring mud-puddle where they
regaled themselves all day, and the last
intelligence was, that they had not yet
reached the domicile of either party.

them from the flame, which was the cause
of a serious fight, in which the deceased
took no active part, though a decided Har
rison mail. Late in the evening, he in com
pany visjted a confectionary; Joseph Little
the owner. In the company who visited Lit
tle’s house,there was a lawy'erofsaid place,
Mr. Macon, against whom it appears Little
had some animosity. After a few words had
passed between them at the counter, Little
took up a musket which lie had concealed
beneath the counter, and presented towards
Macon, the deceased shouting to him not to

hut he instantly fired the musket heavily
loaded with buckshot; only wounding Ma
