nolcircumstances can possibly arise, which
would induce me again to permit my

My inclination and my sense of duty e
qu&lly dictate this course.
No party, gentlemen, hadever higher
motives for exertion, than has the great

tude of our principles, with an unshaken
! reliance upon the energy and wisdom of
I . I 1 ? - a
puqnc opinion, and with the success winch
has-crowned the administration of the go

thaji three-iourths of its existence.) what
has been done, is at once the reward of
past exertion and the motive for future,
and. ajhhe same time, a guarantee for the
accomplishment of what We have to do.
We cannot conceal from .ourselves that
thece js a powerful party in the country
differing from us in regard to many of the
futu)amental principles of our government,
andjopposed to us in their practical appli
cation, which will strive as zealously as
wc shall to secure the ascendajicy of their
prinbjples by securing the election of their
candidate; in the coming contest. That
party; is composed of our fellow citizer";
as deeply interested in the prosperity of
our common country as we can be and
sseeking as earnestly as we are to promote
and perpetuate it. We shall soon present
to the world the sublime spectacle of the
election of a Chief Magistrate by twenty
millions of people, without a single serious
resistance to the laws, or the sacrifice of
the Jile of one human beingand this,
too, n the absence of all force, but the
moral force of our institutions ; and if we
should add to all this an example of mu-

We. have a government founded by the
will ;6fnll. responsible to the power of all,
and administered for the good of all.
The very first article in the Democratic
creed teaches that the people are compe
tent Jto govern themselves: it is, indeed,
rather an axiom than an article of politi
cal faith. From the days of Gen. Hamil
lon to our days, the par ty opposed to us
of whose principles he was the great ex
ponent, if not the founder while it has
changed.its name, has preserved essen
tially its identity of character; and. the
doubt he entertained and taught of the
capacity of man for self government, has
exerted a marked influence upon its ac
tion and opinions. Here is the very start
ing point of4he dilference between tlfe
two great parties which divide our coun
trv. RAM other differences are but subor
dinate and auxiliary to this, and may, in
factbe resolved into it. Looking with
doubt upon the issue of self-government,

fear any change, lest that change might

convictions of the intelligence and virtue
of the people, believes that original pow

FROM THE BALTIMORE AMERICAN OF JUNE 6.
In the concluding paragraph of his let
ter of acceptance addressed to the Presi
dent of the Baltimore Convention, Gen.
Cass uses the following language :
As a partv, wie oujiht not to mistake
the signs of the times, but should bear in
mind that this is an age of progress of
advancement in all the elements of inteb
lectual power, and in the opinions of the
world. The General Government should
assume no powers. It should exercise
none which have not been clearly grant
ed hy the parties to the federal compact.
We ought to construe the constitution
strictly, according to the received and
sound principles of the Jefferson school.
But, while rash experiments should be de
precated, if the Government is stationary
in its principles oj 'action, and refuses to
accommodate its measures, within its con
stitutional sphen -auiiously indei d. but
wisely and cheerfully to the advancing
disclaim the lantern, and the Colonal made
no snch classical allusion at nil." A num
ber of leiter-writers. however. talk might
ily the sameway " of the account quoted
alove ; and it is to be regretted. (ays the
Richmond Times.) that the lantern s
disclaimed, and th.il "the Colonel made
no classical allusion at all. The concur
rent accounts, in different letters, present
a strange example of fallacious circum
stantial evidence ; land, in truth, the story
is too good, not lo jbe true.

My soul, inspired wiih sacred love,

Of all his favors mindful prove,
And still thy grateful thanks express.
The Lord abounds with tender love,
And unexampled acts of grace ;
His waken'd wiaih doth slowly move,
His willing mercy flies apace.
God will not always harshly rhide,
Hut w'uh his anger quickly part ;
And loves his punishment to ruid3
More by love than our desert.
As high as heaven its arch extends
Above this little spot of clay.
So much his boundless love transcends
The small respects that we can pay.
Let spvery creature jointly bless
The mighty Lord; and thou, my heart
With grateful joy thy thanks express,
And in this concert bear thy part.
We give immortal praiso
To Gyd the FatherVlove,
For all our comforts here,
And all our hopes above :
He sent his own
To die for sins
That man had done. 1
To God the Son belongs
Immortal glory too, j
Who saved us by his blood
From everlasting wo :
And now he lives,
And he revign,
And sees the fruit
Of all his pains.

-And endless worship give,

Makes the dad sinner live :

al wilh some who claim to be statesmen
to magnify the power ot the people to the

the people themselves have framed, which
they sustain, and in the body of which
they have a political existence. Such ap

COL. BENTON'S SPEECH.
The "Standard" " invites the attention
of the Raliegh Register, and others who
have been endeavoring to produce the
impression that Col. Benton would not
support Gen. Cass," to a significant' ar
ticle trom the " Washington Union," from
which it appeals that a procession wait
ed upon Senators Dix and Benton, who
addressed the crowd in a handsome and
satisfactory manner." The official pro
ceedings of this " Mass Meeting." as it is
termed by the Union" and 'Standard,"
say that "Col. Benton mnde a few re
marks in regard to the nominations of the
Convention, and pledged the vote of Mis
souri in their support."
Now.it is a pity the Elitors of the
"Standard" and 4 Union" did not furnish
their readers with a copy of this "hand
some" and " 'satisfactory" addrpss of Col.
Benton. It is so short, that no excuse for
want of room" can be given for this de
linquency ; ml the " pledge of Missouri"
lor Mr. Cass", is so cmphetic and hearty,
that their Democratic readers would have
ami faitbfully performed the duties as
signed. As a General, his skill anil brave
ry in the tield has secured him the victors
tu every contest, some of which were as
astounding to the world as grateful to the
heaits of bis devoted soldiers and coun
trvmen. We love the wan. honor the sol
dier, and admire the citizen ; and as we
believe Gen. Taylor's greatest ambition
is to serve hisiCounlry for the good of the
Country, no name could have been brought
lorward to secure our support with great
er cheerlulness. Nor, do we think, we
are speaking our individual sentim-nts
alone: The wisdom, good taste, and es
pecially the gratitude ol a grateful people,
will ensure lor Gen. Tax lor such a vote,
as but one man alone, the Father of his
Country, ever received at the hands of the
American people. So may it be ; and
from this gootl day, may the glory of our
count ry commence ret urning, and its groxv
ing prosperity be secured.

What is patriotism ? Does it consist in
