The pptril of tb age, nH content with the womlerrul ad vance in the intermediate pe riod in all the arts, baa infuaed itaelf into politics. The inventive gentuaof the times has been bile in this , department also. New and improved plans of party organisv tinn and dirripline have bepn started, end new ronreptiona formed of the uses to Pwhich the spirit of party maj be applied. The idea or the existence or a party in the cuuatry of undefined and nodefiuable dan ger and designs npon the eoo6titutiea is made at once the raw head and bloody bones to' alarm the credttloua and ignorant, and the pretest for a vigitant, rigid, and eiclu sive party aseociation. Thia dangerotfa but visible party may be, not inaptly, called the Devil of llits new political system. As tins new party is assoruled up(n tlie, alleged principle of Reserving ibe country and the liberties of the People front that destruc tion which awaits both, jf tbv should. fU into the bands of the arch-enemy, h ia plausibly and conclusively argued that all of fices, emoluments jobs, contracts, and agen cies in abort the, whole revenue of the Government, should be distributed among Its ' members. Thia party may change or shift ita pi maples of policy or adininistrt. tton with the changing seasons themselves, but it may still maintain its original giound of being the only defenders of the lilierlies of Ibe Peopli f It may adopt and iMactiee upon principles of ultra-federal policy to day; it ma) practise upon the most latitu dmnriiQ doctrines to morrow; it may follow in the narrow path of the straightest sect of the State tights parly; it rry re-eoai.t Hie alien and sedition laws; it may commit ev ery abuee known in nhe administration if Ihe most corrupt Government; hut atili it will claim lo be exclusive champion of the constitution and the liberties of the Peo ple ajfainst Ihe unknown and unknowable, designs of a .dangerous party; and this is suffii'ient to rally Ihouaands to lis wlanilint. Who does nut see that all lliat could j'ulily party divisions in ihe rtNintry is wh.illy dm' regiinied; that a new party is forming, mm Ksed of memb rs of evif y M.htie.ij hue and complexion, and whielt niuM. frnnriti very nature and cnuipoHitoii, en 111 h mere association Aw shariuK lh spoil; and (tint the profesiMi of any tartiriihir net of rin ctjdes is nly a den to d leit i Sir, it ia not Gen.
