® the article, 1 did believe him guilty, and up on what 1 considered excellent grounds. Mv authority wns the Itov. Michael Hur lev of Philadelphia, now dead, lint formerly o clergyman doing duly in New York, and I believe at the time that Mr. Cooper was e lectetl, and after a hard straggle admitted to his scat in the legislature. Mr. Hurley gave me the information in the year 1821. 1 al so con vesred with Mr. Cooper who is si ill liv ing, and he confirmed to me Mr. Hurley's account. 1 wrote the article in December, 1833. Some time afterwards, I was conversing on the subject with a friend of mine, a sup porter of General Jackson’s administration, Mr. Robert Barry of Baltimore, since dettd,- w ho expressed his astonishment at tire charge, and 1 mentioned to him my ntilhority.— Ho knew Mr. Hurley intimately, and fte quently met lmn, and remarked that tny au thority was good iflhetc was no mistake, and further added the expression ol his astonish ment that Mr. Hurley never spoke ot it to him. In two or three days afterwards Mr. Barry, Van Bitten, and asked tor an explanation. lie then staled to me the result was his conviction that there must be mistake, for that Mr. Van Boren was not at the time in public li'’: and did nut enter the assembly of New York until more thafT a year alter Mr. Cooper's admission, and that Mr. Van Boren had also a sored him, that he had ne’ er opposed any matt for hi religion, Catholic or Protestant, lit told me that lie would*sce Mr. llmley on the subject. However, I had an opportunity of seeing him befme Mr. B trry haj, and reminded him; ■of what he told tne more than thirteen I years previously. Mr. H. told me that tny statement was perfectly correct in every pur- j titular, except the name: lie said Mr. \ an Buren was tint a 1 the ii re in the legislature, but that Mr. Van (it is unnecessary for me la give the tian.c of a dead man) led the opposition to Mr. Cooper, and that he wn-. supported by two other Van* l , hut that Mr. Van Burett was altogether innocent of the bigotry ; but that from the similarity of names 1 must have been led to a mistake and had, done the Vice President an'ii justice* 1 aw Mr. Cooper in a shod time aliervwirfds, who upon my asking y. r it was not Mr Van Buren that led. r’Te opposition to his seat, said, that it was not, for Mr. A an Bu ren was not then in the house, and that he believed him incapable of any such ntiscori duet. lie gave me the name that .Mr. Hur ley did. I may now be asked, why, when I waV convinced of my mistake. I Hid not publicly correct it. My answer i-: that 1 thought tin statement had passed away fromtftiu mind of those who read it, and 1 felt a threat reluc tance to come before the public with vvhat 1 consideted u valueless certificate in a politi cal contest. At ptesenl the case is very till fereut, I find that tny mistake is used for the ptrrp-W ofiof-wncing a Urge body ~f void in different stabs. nod I therefore led that 1 would be wanting in holier nn.bp -. i e, were I to seek protection to my private feelings by permitting the injury of a b|th ptlbhe dlt er, and tl) at of a large body of ei; i/.eus who identify their feelings with 1 is policy, mid who consider that the loss o! his election would be a great national calamity. 1 tin no injustice to General Harrison, by staling that Mr. Van Buren lias not been‘guilty of the bigotry with which 1 wrongly charged him, under tlie influence of a serious mistake A!1 I which ever candidate maybe the object of oiv preference, it would be to me u source of deep regret that Mr. \ an Buren should loose a single vote by reason of misrepresen tation originating through me. Ami I trust tlte friends of his opponent, are two honora ble and too jusllodesire success by means of delusion anil fraud, and that ifany of tlte pa pers that seek his elevation have given ettr rcncv'lo mv charge against Air. A an Buren. they will have the sense of justice to siab , that, upon proof of its want ui null), it lias , lecn retracted. ] am, Deal Sir, Yonrob'di humble servant, | f JOHN, Bishop ol Charleston : Charleston, July Kith, 1810. Tram the Federal Union. CO M MONICATED. To (lit Rev. William Musv.h/, of Henry county, Georgia. Sir: 1 have noticed your political ef fusions in tlte Georgia Journal, w ith sur prise mid regret. Surprised to find one whom I know to possess by nature n due share of its endowments, mid by oppor tunity, the fullest means of knowing that you bad fallen iiitostrange, not to sav un necountnhle errors —regret, to see one whose oflirc is to hold forth front the sa cred desk, these imperishable truths which nre intended to lead man to It is fvilotv man, mid in God, descend from his sacred station, and off his sacerdotal robe, garb him self in the full panoply of a modern poli tician, nml, in the manifestation of that spirit which is peculiar to politicians of tlie present day, distort and discolor the acts and principles of their political op ponents. From the ordinary street poli ticians, who, misled mid deluded by the reckless artifices of Sortie favorite “Sir Oracle,” to whom he lias poured his faith in ii'idying reliance, and who is conge rpicntfy sure to go forth in froth and fnrv, to echo the sling of.a political master, such conduct might have been expected. But from one who is commanded, to incul cate that divine principle, “whatsoever vn would men should do unto von, dowe likewise to them,” and who, warned by the precepts of his master, “to judge not lest ye he judged,” to exercise that “char ily which Itopelli all tiling',” and without which, it is suid, we becontens “sounding ; brass or a tinkling cymbal,” a course dif ferent, far different, was to have been looked for. Tito times, sir, are indeed ominous—ominous of rcljginus as well as ptilimml degeneracy; mul when the Inuu- I hie follower of Christ looks forth in sur i vey the moral waste, which stretches in I the distance before him, and there lie lmlds the ministers of heaven engaged in : deadly combat—wearing llteapparel, ami flourishing the weapons on mi embittered muliliseredhiihle party warfare, the scene is calculated to carry home to lii.s heart the most withering and ml-hinchnly contem plations. Reflect, sir, if you do not ex hibit, in your course, the picture I have drawn, ami answer to high heaven! I will not charge yon, to he guilty of bringing in too clnfi count.ction the af fairs ol Church and Stale, by attempting to influence, through your ministerial character, the members of that denomi nation ot Christians of which von are a leading organ. This, sir, would darken the scene, and present you in it view be fore the world, unchristian mid revolting. But I will exorcise .the candor to inform ; you, that such is the prev ailing sentiment. Hermit me, sir, to hope, lor the sake of I religion—for the sake of mv country j that you cannot yet !mv\- arrived at a pitch jot moral degradation so humiliating. -It ‘ fsirSo! lit tint the iniiti- tef of the sanc tuary, wlm, like yourself has prnehiitm and to tlte hsteoi; ig ami cornpito i! ass. millv, .that l hrist's “kiugnom is not of tins I “olid, 1 could la- induced to lower, “the j banner ol the Cross” “to tßsJyingdom of | this world,” by hriagiog it into'so vile a ! | subserviency. No, sit! This ought not,- I cannot la ! lint this 1 leave to others, to he jadgetl of according to the do inc rale, ! “by their fruits ye shall /.now them." — j Bui there are same errors of facts, errors ! of judgment, errors of argument, aml-ns j sumptions, which, inasmuch as you have thrown yiiiirself.upmi the pi Iniral arena, i think I h**e a perfect right to examine, l'liis I shall proceed to do, hilt lo t pro j ej- oly in kite ordeT in w hich they occur, hirst, lYjs 9r\ a facts : V by interrogation, •Alj.-’ Buren voted lor the hif®. 91 1 iff and 18.28, and that Mr. Harrison did not. Here are y our words : “ Did Gen. H ar rison Vote for the tariff! !lo did; mid divl not Ms. Van Buren ? But, (continue ■ yjmi,) did he (ll.irri. an) vote lur it in 1828, it at a previous period? It’ at a J prev inns period, did not .Air. Crawford ami other republicans tin the same, for the reason that the government was hi debt and required it ?” Now, sir, the intimation here throw t mit, i> this : that 1! irrison voted fw a t.e ----! which was not the tariff of 1828, hut the tariff of a previous period, fur which “.Air: Crawford and othei republicans” voted. The intimation is not trim, nml it believed, will deceive* the reader, for AA i! 11. Harrison was in the Senate of the 1 niti ! States in I ‘-.28, and record ed his vote for that measure which is called “the hill -f . minions,” the high tariff oi I I proclaim this to lie Irut', sir., nml cluilienge von In die good the contrary ii you can. Nay, mere; i implore you as a good man anil a cht istian, to vrilhdra w your untrue iu limatimi, lor it is not the less untrue he ! cause it is staled iiitt-rrogsitiwlv. 1 am informed a similar mi-statement is made hy “ A Troup mini of 1825,” mid 1 there fore judge llmt vuu were possibly misled hy him. At ail events, j istice, even handed justice requires the correction and explanntion, otherwise you are lia ble to he set down as willing to propagate impressions which are untrue mid unjust ■ to your p dittcnl adversary. This you cannot do, without violating the plainest I precepts of that gospel, which you preach, I and which teaches you, “ 11 thine enemy ! hunger, Iced him ; if he jhiist, give him drink.” Tifclhis high sir, I shall hold yotisia the few numbers which I intend to devote It- y our cnmmutiicti tions. Again, you ask if Gen, Harrison was not a member of in emancipation socie ’ tv, and take it upon yourself tu answer ; I that he vvns, but say that there was no j abolition society. Now, sir, either you are wrong in declaring that Mr. Harrison j liras not .\ member of tin abolition society, ’ nr Mr. Harrison was wrong in saying that ’ he was; for he expressly ih ebin s* it in 1 tlte follow ing word?: “At the age of 18, j ! became a member of an abolition so ciety,” Are. Now, sir, do you not know [ that which you nod others at the Smith arc engaged in explaining away this de claration its utterly harmless, that it is industriously circulated at the North, among idiadltiuliists, to prove (o ilo <a that I! irrison is n friend of llu ir cause? I ; tell von it is so, and if you deny the fact, I will bring up the evidence to convince you, or any cmxild and unprejudiced matt iu Georgia. Not so, sir, but I will prove In you that Harrison lias t im sdf, since his late nomination, and dur ing the year 18-10. been at pains to as sure nhnli ionists, that it was all “ Aboli tion Society” to vvhieli he had belonged. ; Now, whether it he true or untrue, that j this society was “ abolition” or not, cor ; t a inly, sir, .Air. Harrison, w ho was a me to iler of it, should he the proper judge, mid as between himself and yon, the het:i r ol the two, and lie colled It “ an abolition I society.” Jf it was, no Southern man ’ dare to vole fur him without being justly I chargeable w ith aiding and abetting the cause ; if it was not, Gen. Harrison Ins ■■ said that w hich is untrue,to use tin harsh er term; and if so, why ! Now ditl it ever enter your mind to enquire the tiu snn ? AA hy, I ask, if it vv as not an “ abo lition society,” did Harrison tell the peo ple of Ohio that it was? Doubtless, sir, lie did it to get abolition votes, and to ex piate to them far the gilt w hich lie hail : committed against them, hy not voting in ’ Congress for the Missouri restriction ! And this he did,sir, by declaring to them, 1 if you are right in you apology Far him, i an untruth—yes, sir, that wlioli was tin -1 true ! i pray you, sir, not . > regard mo as speaking harshly ; examine tint ease, , turn it iu y our mind, nml you mount fail ; to see that there is no escape from one or the other of the two diflicti! h pre sented, Ami are you prepared to turn over into the blinds of silt'll a mall as this, i the destinies of this glorious republic —a ; man w ho, if he has told the truth, has been “ a member of mi abolition s-wu tv,” or if lie has never been a member, lias | been guilty of a palpable perversion of the Ini!lt, for the ignoble purpose,as eve ry one must believe, of conciliating abo litionists, nml getting their votes. Place your lavnritc caudiijato nml lu r>, sir, . upon (.'iilier horn of this dilemma, and lie 1 stands condemned as unworthy the sup port of the people. But, sir, there is n question eoniKcttd : with this part of your address, which to \'4u is of ;i more berinus and pi- >nal ; character. If lam not greatly in error, you have, iu an unguarded and Uiifoitu >nntc over zeal to screen the elriroftu of Hen. Harrison from political heresy, (m- : intern I hope,) misrepresented the J objeets id theVocieiv in question. \N hat } did I s.iy ?
