Notwithstanding the j' exciting scenes through which we have passed, nothing lias occurred to disturb the general p**ace. or to derange the harmony of our political system. The great moral specta cle has been exhibited of a nation, approximating iu num ber to 20,000.000 of people, having performed the high anil- important f ncfioh'ol electing their Chief Magistrate for the term ofintir year*, without the commission of tiny net of violence, or tVe manifestation of a spirit of insubordination to the laws. The great ami inestimable right qf. suffrage, has been exe-ciseil by all who were invested with it! under the laws of the different States in a spirit d'etated alone by a desire, in tnesfe’feCtinn of the agent, to advance the inter eBta of the country, and to place beyond jeopardy the icsti tutions tinder which it is our happiness to live* That the deepest interest has been manifested bv our countrymen in the result of the election, is not less ti ue than highly credita ble to them. Vast multitudes nave assembled, from time to time, at various places, for the pm pose of canvassing the merits and pretensions of those who were presented for their suffrages; but no acme-: soldiery has been necessary to restrain, within proper limits, the popular zeal, or to pre vent violent outbreaks. A principle much more controlling was found in Uie love of order and obedience to the laws, which with mere individual exceptions, every where pos sesses the American mind. an*4 controls with at. influence far.owe powerful than host* of armed men. We cannot dwell upon this picture without recognising in it that deep and devoted attachment on the part of the People, to the in stitutions under which we live, which proclaims their pei- petuity. The great objection which has always prevailed a gainst the election, by the people, o» their Chief Executive officer, has been the apprehension oftuinults and disorder which might involve in ruin the entire Government. ‘ A se curity against this, is found not only in the fact before alluded to. but in the additional fact that, we live under a confeder acy embracing already twenty-six States ; no one of which has power to control the election. The popular vote in each State is taken ntthetime appointed by the laws, and such vote is announced by the Electoral Coffee?, without reference to the decision of the other States. The right of j o stipulation t< suffrage, and the mode of conducting the election is regula ted by the laws of each Siate; and the election is distinctly federative in'all its prominent features. Thas it is that, un a variety ofi article* ntwtf like what niighr be the results under a consolidated system 1 bII duty under the act of C riotous proceedings, should they prevail, could only uffect t» e election iu single Sta tes, without disturbing, to any dan gerous extent, the tranquility of others. The great experi ment of a politicaW*anfeder.icy—each member of which is supreme—as to all matters appertaining to its local interests and its internal peace nnd happiness-—while by a voluntary compact with others, it confides to the united power ofall, the protection ofits citizens, In^matters not domestic—has been so far crowned with* suet ess. The world has witness ed its rapid growth in wealth and population; nnd under the guide and direction of a super intending Providence, the de^e'opements of the past may be regarded but as shadow ing forth the mighty future. In the bright prospects of that fut-jie. we shall find, as patriots and philanthropists the highest inducements to cultivate and cherish a love of union, ami to frown down every measure or effort which may be made to alienate ilio States, or the people of the States, in sentiment and feeling, from each other. A rigid and close adherence to the terms of our political compact. and above all, a sacred observance of the guaranties of the Constitution, will preserve union un a foundation which can not lie shaken ; while pe r sonal liberty is placed beyond bat nrd orjeopardy. The guarantee of religious freedom, of the freedom of the press, of the liberty of speech, of the trlai j flatter myself that she w by j or r, of the habeas corpus, and of tne domestic iusiiutios ,l ’ e ' pm . rptntmr t of each of the States—leaving the private citizen in the full exercise of the high and ennobling attributes of his nature j opera and to each State the priviledge, which can only be judi x " ciously exerted by itself, of consulting the means best ealeu lalcd to advance its own happiness—these are the great and \ Einpi important guarantees of the Constitution, which the lovers of liberty must cherish and the advocates of union must ever cultivate. Preserving these, and avoiding all iutetpolations by for ced construction, under the guise of un imagined expedien cy; upon the Constitution, the inlluenoe of our politico! sys tem is destii ed to be as actively and ns beneficially felt on the distant shores of the Pacific, as it is now on those of the Atlantic ocean. The only formidable impediments in the way of its •successful expansion (time and rrpace) are so far in the progress of modification by the improvements of the age. as to render no longer speculative the ability of Rep resentatives from that remote region to come up to the Capitol, so that their constituents shall participate in all the benefit*of the Federal legislation. Thus it js. that in the progress of time, the ineslimat le prirfcip’es of civil liberty will be enjoyed by millions yet unborn, and the greaibene- fit* of our system of Government be extended to no dis tant and uninhabited regions. In view of the vast wilder ness yet to be reclaimed, we may well invite the lover of freedom..of"every lake up his abode among us. and atliA fisin the great work of advancing the standard ufclvi- Iizatinn, and giving a wider spread to- the arts and rctine- KMfih of cultivated life. Our prayers should evermore be offered up to the Father of the Universe, for Ids wisdi rn to j permanent direct us in the path of our duty, so as to enable us to pon- ar.ts, and makes a nsc of justice for a ing out of the cor.- iii ut.udju.stedi and np line t»f tin ! l»y tne two lied by the ich delayed ure of Coa ly appropriation of Stan party,*nod by estabii! iie Ui :reased in.!..:- lost t’iin of the most fr rope a n Power, lipence and 1 'mlly' The labors cd thi Government* run t Treaty of Washington in the commencement press, at the l ist sessic funds to meet the exp< other causes. The Uiutc-d C expresses his expectation that,by ’• energy, the party will bo able to ma' VVe kondnue to receivi assuranci feeling* on the part of all the other Euro pea each and all of whom it is so obviously ocr interest ;c culti vate the most amicable relations. Nor can 1 anticipate the occurrence of any event which would be likely in any do- Sree to disturb those relations. Russia, the gn at northern power, under thejudielmss sway of her Emperor, is c«in stantly advancing iti the rend of science \ud improvement: while France, guided by the councils of her wise sovereign, pursues a.course calculated to coiiFoIidato tne general peace. Spain has obtained n breathing spell of some dura tion from the internal convulsions which have through so many years, marred her ptospority; while Austria, the Netherlands, Prussia, Belg’um and the other powers of Europe, reap a rich harvest of blessings from the prevailing peace.

Such opinions may become the foundation of political patties, until, at lust, the conflict producing ait alienation of friendly feel- ing among the People of the different Slates, may involve, in one general destruction, the happy institutions under w hich we live.
