" ' " We have seer within a; very few years, the power and patronage of the Federal Executive increase, and increasing to an extent, .greater tliao those possessed either by the King uf Engi land or Prancef Ve see the expenditures of the governmen j Increased at a rate beyond all former example In this, and almost any other country, havingjjn the period of ten yesrs, rnn op from $9,784,154 to $22,713,755 exclusive of the Public debt ; and we now witness going on in the country a scene which threatens to de stroy the freedom of elections, and! subvert the Constitution We sejs the whole patronage of the Government wielded for the purpose of forcing on the people Martin Van ;Buren, of sew York as next President pf the United States ; and to ac complish this e id, nothing is stopped at men in all respects competent and honest, are turned out of office, merely because they are not in fa vor of Martin iVan Buren, and others put in who become thelpliant and servile tools of power; It appears from the documents submitted to Con gress, that the number of dependants on the gov ernment for bread, is rapidly increasing. In 1825 the whole number of persons who held offi ces under the government or fed opt of the pub lic Treasury, was 55,777 ; and that in 1633 this list had increased to 100,079 these facts we think ooghtjjio alarm the people, and awaken them to a sensejpf their danger. ' : 2nd. Resolved That we deem it prema ture at present! for the VVhig3 of North Caro lina, to make any nomination for the next Presi oency, or to g-o fuiiher on the subject than lode clare our opinion against Martin Van Buren, and against the waste of public money and the abuse of patronage which have taken place under his influence. We would look on j his election; as a great misfortune to the country, and espe cially to the South : and to escape these evils, when the proper time comes, we will support a gainst him, anyl. man of competent talent, fair character, and acknowledged patriotism, be he Hugh L. White of Tennessee or whosoever M.-nmvil l t At R,,nh nnn shall ri v irt th A, nonnlii cn,!cf9Mn,v aCcrnnn ll,at hJ is for economy and reform in the government. 3rd. Resolved, That we look upon the mis j called Convention which is now getting up, to be held in Baltimore, on the 20th day ot May, as nothing but a packed caucus got op jfor the our-, pose of humbugging the people, and Impisiegon; the country Martin Van Uoren, as the next. President, since; it is well understood that no one will go there, who is not for Van Buren, and all w ho do go, do so, for the sole purpose of nomina ting him. f i 4th.

Pursuant to a call of the Grand jurors; here tofore wade, the Freemen of Rowan. ri great numbers, assembled in Salisbury, on May the ISih. At 11 o'cluok, the Court House bell was rung for the meeting to take place, as ion -former becasions in the Court House. In a few moments, jther Cjourl House was filled, up to overflowing, and several hundred persons were outside, doable to get in. ; I Y' f The meeting was organized, by calling John Giles, Esq. to the Chair, and Jdde jJames Martin, Doct. John Scott, Gen. James Cook, and Nathan Chaffin, Epq., as assistant ; Chairmen ; Kob't. jVlacnamara and Alexander JLong were appointed Secretaries. As soon as the meeting Was organized a proposition vas made that the assembly should adjourn to Mr. Vogleir's grove, South East of the Court House, in order that all the people attending might have an opportunity of participating in the business of day, the) which Was carried by genpral approbation. ; 1 vtom the Court House, the People, with the Committee, and the officers of the meeting, the Vernor the State, and Senator Mangum, at Wad. tta'Chcd t0 PC f adjWiriltoent 1 he elegant oand of music from Salem! being here.on their way to Mecklenburg celebration, fery obligingly joined in, and conducted the Whole concourse, with cheering and mama! mo sic; to the grove, where hasiy arrangetneqts had hjeein made for the occasion by Mr. Vofcjler. As soon as the meeting was re-organized, by the officers taking their places, the Chairman irose, nd in a clear and lucid address of! thirty minntes in lengin, explained tne purposes or the meeting. - ! M ' As soon as the Chairman had concluded his remarks, Gen. Thomas G. Polk, a organ of the Committee appointed to draft Resolutions for die consideration of the meeting, presented thosr which lollow below, with a few introductory remarks. -The Resolutions were then read. A letter from the Hon. Bedford Browhi Reusing himself from attending this meeting; was then His Excellency David u. iSwam, and the Hon. Wiliie P.

Mr, tnereiore, me r ree menm nowan uounty, tn oahsbury assembled, do solemnly Resolve, That, in our opinion, t he tapid horo press which the Federal Government, within a few years past has made, and is s'lll making in the usurpation of power not granted by the Con Stitutiun, in the abuse of powers that j are' gran ed in the extravagance of public expenditures, nd in the corruption of Republican principles is, Socn as ought greatly to alarm all patriotic and thinking men, not only for the safejyjjpf our Re publican Institutions but even Liberiy itself. I Resolved, For the purpose of arousiri? j the people of North Carolina, to a jot sense of their danger that the friends of the CoxiTiTtlTrioN, f (economy in public expenditures, and of re form in the abuses of the Government, with pit loss of time, should every where organize themselves for active and open operations. To this end, we recommend to them in every Coun- yj to appoint Committees of Vigilance, and ob servation, that is, one Central Committee in each County, and a Committee of Vigilance in each Captaio's Uistrict, whose doty it shall bejio a- waken the people from their lethargy ; to detect the artifices of the Caucus party, and of, the of hfice-holders and office-seekers, and bold lv to ex pose them lo the people ; and generally to adopt t para our institutions rrom tne rate that now threa tens themi I ! 11 il Besolvcd. Thzi the Central Committee, ap- 1 rininiPfl ftV: llilfi mPAlinff. tnrlh lltK nrvan Mnvroa rty in every part of this State, and more espe bially n the Western part, for the purpose o prodacisg perfect concert cf action io the great Also, that said Coojmitlee as soon as they ; con veniently can, prepare, abd publish an address, from the Free men of Rolvan County, to the peo ple of North Carolina, sitting forth, in plain and earnest language, the dingers, that now hang over the Country and palrticolarly over theSou . them States ; and orgin upon them the neces sity of retrenching the tfxtravagances in public expenditures, and ofrefdrming the abuses of the Government. I j I ! I Resolved, That the late attempt of the Presi dent of the United States, to DICTATE to the people who shall be their next President, in our opinion, is an open assault on the freedom of e lections, and a daring oulraga on the constitu tional riphts of the peoplp and as such, ought to-jarouse the patriotic indignation of every jciii izen who is worth v of the name of Free-man. Resolved, That the Convention, which lis to assemble in the City of Baltimore, on: the 20th day of this month, for the purpose of nominating Martin V an Bcren aa next President, is an other attempt to subvert (the Constitution of the country to take from toe people the right 6t choosing their own President and to transfer it to an irresponsible Caucits composed of interes ted office-holders and ofEe-seekers. ,:- Resolved, That we are opposed to the election of Martin Van Bcren of New York to the Pre-kJencj ; and to the Citizens throughout the end, that our Fellow JState, may know our reasons for this oppositio we will here briefly principal ones : We set forth the heads of th are opposed to the ekctioi of Martin VarBuren, 1st Because, he has always been hostile to the principles of the greaj Republican party. The first noted political act of his life, was in hostility to the Republican party, f During the late War, when the enemy was spreading des olaiion along our whole ioast when our j Nor thers frontier was overunland many of our towns sacked and destroyed byi fire when the brutal savage was turned loos on our Southern and Western frontiers to scalp and murder our "de fenceless women and ctildren, Martin Van Buren leagued io with the opposition of the North, to defeat the Republican Candidate for the Presidency , and to dilgrade and to drive from power the Republican party : and yet, notwith standing all this, his partisans, the office-holders, have the effrontery to call him the candidate of the Republican party. ; j -2d. Because, He is hostile to the peculiar in terests of the Southern Slates. In :820, when a most daring and unconstitutional attempt was made in Congress on the subject of the Missouri Question, to interfere with the constitutional; rights of the Southern pelple, he was found an active and zealous supporter of the nefarious) 6heme. His subsequenifvote in the-New Yorki Convention to'place free tiegroes as regards the; nsfnior sonrage on an epjuai looung wiin wnue men, is another evidgncewhai his principles ar on this subject, so imporrnt to the people of the s.'ave hoJdine states 1 lis ought to be a serious warning to the Souther people, not to elect one whose principles are so SAFETY. 3d Because. He is a ual to our rights and advocate of a protective I ariff. " In cooventi s of Manufactures at ht me. and in his seat in be Senate, we find him; steadily approving, and the odious Tariff policy, which has cted on tbe industry!! of the South so oppressively, as actually to have; endangered the peace antiunion of these States." He voted for the Tariff act of 182S a measure: which is now characterized as " the bill of abom- nations." This Tariff sjsiem aims to impose heavy i axes on the necessaries of lire, such as Iron, Steel, JVaJU, Salt. Sugar, Coffee, coarse voiton, ana coarse troctfn Cfofs,; articles that are ; extensively osed bv the common neoole, while on Silks. Wines. Jtwclleru. fine cotton and fine Woolen Ciothsj articles mostly; us-d by the: rich, light duties, or no duties all are desired. 4th.l Because. He is rlow avowedly in favor of a system of Internal! Improvements by the General Government contrary to the long estab lished doctrine of the Republican party, that is; he is in favor of taxing the people ;of one State to make roads and canalslin another State. We bold, that it is onjust to tax the people of North laroima, to make iropro 4 ements for New York each State make its or any other State Let own roads and canals. 5th. Because, He has Seen chiefly;instrumen ; tal in introducing into th practice of the Feder al Government that system of proscripti h, and parly discipline, which is, so rapidly destroying the freedom of opinion, orrupting the morals of the country, and making the Government it self, a distinct interest from that of the people. By ihM system, within tbe last few years under the influence of Mr VanlBoren, more than fire thousand persons-haie bejen turned out of office, not for acts (if misconduct! but merely for opinions ake and their places fined up by persons, not because they were well qualified for the duties of the i office, out merely on Account of their politi cal servility to Martin Van Buren,' and because they were willinottTproetitute their officesio se cure his election to the presidency thus con-I verting offices which wee created for the bene 1&t of the people into so many lecruiung5 posts to oe occupied and used to perpetuate power in the hanrJs of a ruling faction! 6th. Because, He is i favor of an extrava gant expenditure of ihe ublic money. J, To show bow the Government is going on un der the an- Buren tteW6 have only to refer to public documentsifurnished by the Exec olive- Departments themselves. It appears from these ocuments, that, in the year iba, the whole expenditureof tne uovern ment, exclusive of the public debt, amounted to 9,784.000 ; and that irj 1833, it had run op lo the enormous sum of $2'-,715,000. Public Documents alsq show, that in the year 1825, the number of persons who reoeived sal atifs and stipends out of he public chest, was a-bouijifly-siz thdusand-nnd that in 1833, this list had been increased tq upwards of one hun dred thousand persons. vho are now fed out of the public Treasury, trom the Taxes collected ef the people. When at the last session of Congress, an ef fort! was made to lessen these expenditures and reform these abuses, Martin Van Buren and his partizans, openly arrayed themselves assinst the plan. What then, can the people expect from his election, bui that this; system will goon ontil taxation and corruption overwhelm our liberties. 7 Because under this fan Buren System, the Post Office Department that impuruiii branch of the Government, thrlosb which light, and knowledge muat circalat to the people, has been of.party. , -ps- i I Pubhc Docoments- show, that when Judge M'Lean left tbe t)fficeirwas in a most flouiish ig condition not cnly aupporting itself in all is operations, but actually leaving a surplcs of several hundred thousand dollars in the strong bpx of ;ihe Departments Scarcely, however, bad Mr. Barry been iu that department a single year, liefore srgns of disorder and confusion began eve rr where to show themselves. It appears, from t ie reports of Committees cf Congress, appoin t d to examine into the condition of the Depart ment, that not only disorders and confusion exists ii it, but practices of the most open corruption: I .is proven, that the Post Master Genera),! has ben io the practice of giving large sums of) the public money to favotite and partizan mail Con ti actors, under the name of extra allowances j il ls proven that the Chief Clerk of tbe Depart ment has been concerned in Contracts, and has b some means grown- rich out of the spoils of the public Treasury j and as" might be expected from all tbjs, it appears that the Department itself has opcome ysnouy insolvent, and now owes a cent opt tar short of a million of dollars. In the days 1V.lL! ' u asoingion, or enner oi nis six successors, what would have been the course of the Execu tive towards a public officer, acting as Mr. Bar ry has done f Weanswer. he would have been dismissed from office, and punished for hs oTen cp. But, we see that'Mr. Barry, in defiance o public opinion, has been retained in office, arid thereby encouraged in his malptactices ; and ttfie, lately we have seen him rewarded for his trjisdeeds, by appointing him Embassador, to Spain-, with a salary of 0000, and an outfit of $9000 more, making 18000 to him in one year; ana as u to try now mucn tne patience or tne cluniry will bear, we see the convenient tool of Mr. Van Buren, Amos Kendall, enstalled in his place, as Post Master General of the United Jiiatesi A few years ago Amos Kendall begged Mr Clay, 4oLa Clerksiiiof $1500 per year, vhich i was denied him ; he now receives, as te reward of hisHngratitude to his benefactor, a office worth $6,000 per year. I J 8tb. We are opposed to Martin Van Buren, bfcausa he has attempted to enlist the influence of Foreign Governments, in the struggles of or domestic parties. His carrespondence while Secretary of State, with the British Court, and vgith the Pope of Rome, tooclearly manifest tis design, to leave any doubts about it. 1 For 'these, and many oiler reasons, we are or posed to Martin Van Buren, and would depre ciate his election to the Presidency, as fatal to "tie welfare of the Union, if not to Liberty itself. h 1 Resolved, That we will support Hugh L. 3White of Tennessee, for; next President : But iaj . the same time, we make this declaration ; .self respect on the one band, and fair dealing in Ipe other, requires us to say, that we take him as an alternative. Nevertheless, we believe him IS be an able, aod honest Statesman ; and under tase circumstances, we will give to him our o- pin, candid, and zealous support. y Resolved, That we approve of the course of oar able and patriotic Senator.Willie P.

" From The, Bcliluc "COME AND LET US REASON GETHER" I woold say a word to the rr son men. In 1824 you and I er, . We supported the electic . Jackson, Blair and Kendall wtr "irn j . re t. f ( .? t'. ) t ted partisans of Mr Clav, and Mr. Vcn ren supported Mr. Crawford Kcr.Jall tinned to be the zealous paitisan cf . Clayj advised lira to tote for Mr. Adar ., not as he pleased, after the election cf : 1 A. offered to come on to Washington, r defend Mr, Clay from the slanders, to i bis own Words, that were published sa i him, if Mr. Clay .jwould give him an o Worth fifteen bundrcd. dollars per ant.u:; Mr. Clay "refused !to pay bira the stipu'rt price,, and Kendall turned his pri- fangs on the benefactor who had v him iuto life, and became State's eviu.; to convict Mr. Clay of the charge which he had volunteered to defer.il I Blair came in at the eleventh hour, un contract that he ; should have the pri: patronage of the Government Now wht: are you, $ where are these men? You liar : all the kicks, & tliey have the all copp. r: . Your labor is reduced forty percent.in iu v ! ue & they boast that they have reduced V value of flour one half!! How is it with their salaries ? Kendall, who entreated Mr. CI: for fifteen hundred dollars per annum, re ceives bis six thousand; in hard dolhr and hit j pickings and speculations to be : . Blarr makes his thousands without movi: -bis finger, except as the pensioned hbrl!:: of General llarrisoDf arid those who hate refused to surrentjer their judgments c. J iher principles! I And these are the men who, by the vir tue of their position! in the count ry, denounr j such of the original Jackson men as disr ; prove of the measures which have broj;rJ -tbe country into its 'present unexm' ' condition, and call on youto follow then; i their denunciations, .q What I would, entreat of you to do ir, calmly to go overjttie wnoie ground wj. me, and let us reason together on lit things. How doe$ it happen that iho men who were opposed to, us in 1821 v,I:d then reviled and ridiculed General Jackson, even more than tbey now rjdiccle General Harri6on,got possession of bis ear,5' tlirou': the potent influence of his name, risen into power, whilst his strongest and stcrr estdfriends are driven from hiraj and are de nounced as if they were enemies to their country ? Go into any'of the States, sr.,! look out lor the original Jackson men, a:;d you will find that many of those who nis ed the standard, and bore the heat and bur den of the day, ore now proscribed and per secuted ; whilst a tnongreLmixture of money-loving office holders are the chosen leaders of the party. 4 How is this ? why is it so ? Men may change but principles will not. When we rallied sgainst Mr. Adams, the strongest sr gument urged cgainst birnt tvas, that lie z bused the patronage of the -government to re-elect himself .Who 'doei iiot'tccollcct Col. Johnson's celebrated declaration, that he would oppose thi re-election of Mr. Ad ams, though "he were as pure as the argc in Heaven!'1 The people were then rr roosed to vindicate the purity of the elec tive franchise. "Your pupose was to i::cri the power of the people to elect their or n Chief Magistrate, aud you rallied against Mr. Adams' becauseyou resolved to demon strate thai the voice of the peoplalwas more potent than the patronage of the governmcn t. Yonr desire was, ior prove that your vote: cpnld not be purchased with your own mc. ney. That the virtue; of the people ;cz stronger than the love of money. You tri umphed. The. election H Gen; Jaekscn Was a triumph of the elective franchise You gained the battle but you have lost tho fruits ofjvictory. Gen, Jackson cspd the power which you had "defeated, not only to re-elect himself but tolappoint his sue ceseor. I He brought! the whole force of the Federal patronage to, bear on the tlet tio and by exerting his own -personal popular- lXy jn aid ofl the power and influence of the government, he elected Mr Van Buhn. These things are true and no man can gain say them. Your confidence has been abus ed', and you have been inflamed by artful appeals to your passions aridj prejudices You have been taught to believe that in following the will of your party leaderir, you were asserting and maintaining your principles. I would ask you if you; do net see that by supporting Mr. Vin Buren s re election, you are violating your principles ? Who believes that Mr Van Buren is the free unbiassed choice of the people ? What will ihforld believe ir Van Buren is -reelected?" What will you believe ? If he is able now, by the force of the federal pat ronage to re-elect himself, is there not an end to the freedom of election ? Will it not prove that the love of office and filthy lucre is stronger than the loveof country ? But why do I reason thus?! Come one, come all and swell the rolling tide of pub lic opinion. Let thejxveTeclion be a tri umph cf populajvoicei speaking in a voire of thundeiOoTall who are now in .authori ty and to all who are to corwe after them ; proclaiming that the people are sover eign; and they have resolved to assert their power. Let the originial Jackson men rnoice that' our candidate is a patriot in who'm there is no guile. One who has no selfish ends to gratify. One who comes into power wiih no griefs to avenge and no debts to pay. One who will bring jor and peace, and plenty io a, suffering coun try, and who have no terrors, bill Tor those who have covered the land , with sadness and affliction. Another consideration. Oar 'candidal was nominated in the spirit of patriotism. He was chosen as the rallying point of er ery friend of liberty. In selecting him, there was a surrender of personal preferen ces A great many of ihe Whig party were the zealous friends of another distinguish ed eitizen. Tbey believed that he h3d been persecoted, calumniated, and injured- 8 i r
