Wc publish Gen. Cass's letter in nil. The letter of the commit tee contains nothing very remarkable. jTliey Jay before the General the resolu tions adopted by the Convention, and kind ly inform him that they contain tho pri.n iciplfi "upon which they (the Convention) llfinlv the government ought to be admin istered." These (add the Committee) 'constitute a platforjn broad enough for all true (lemocrats to stand upon, and narrow enough to exclude all those who may be opposed to the great principles of the De mocratic party." Gen. Cass, therefore, like Mr. Polk, was required to pledge him jself explicitly to the creed prepared lor liim at Baltimore. Ho takes the nostrum vith1 admirable fortitude, saying of the . Resolutions, I adhere to them as firmly as opproxje of thorn cordially.' Neither ljrmnessor cordiality being n character istic of the General, we think his profes Kion of faith (and this,hc says, is his "last") leaves his political compass some room for Veering, j j We hcvc no space for farther comment on this.production, which takes a column 1 !o say what Mr; Clay said in two senten ces. But we cannot omit to take notice of the writer" arrogant and ridiculous as sumption that the Whig party questions the capacity of man for self-government, and that this forms the radical distinction between the two parties. It we seek for faithful adherence - to thfetr radical a pi pljcation, whenever Td xyherevrr I may bf required to act, anything further I mighi now say, would be mere delusion, unworthy of myself, and justly offensive td the; great paity in whose name you arc f 4 n0w Acting. ' UMVJBBSiTY OF r. CAROLINA. The exercises of the Annual Commencement- of our University, we learr, were Very interesting, and xycll calculated to sustain the high character of the institu tion, which deservedly ranks among the he fundnmcntal difference, it lies in this : The Whig party appeals to the intelli gence and sound judgment of the people ; .he Democratic party to their prejudices , vnd passions1. The Whig party not only jelieves'in, but trusts to, their capacity for self-government ; the Democratic party iractlcally denies it, by continually aba ting from the responsibility of the Execu tive, j There is one sort of government against which the Whigs do, and ever ,vill, protest : it is the uncontrolled supre macy; olj such time-servers and "equivo cating betrayers" of the people's rights as IjLe wis Cass; whose history proves him o have been a federalist or republican ; an apologist for Louis Philippe or his de nouncer!; an advocate of the Wilmot Pro- yiso or'lts .opponent ; just as he thought one opinion or tho opposite would be to his own advantage. Gcn .Cass's Letter of Acceptance. " Washington, May 30, 1818. Gentli prritn I have the honor to ac knoxvledgo the receipt of vour letter of 4he 28th instant, announcing to me that 1 have been"" nominated by the convention bf the Ijemocralic party its candidate for the office of President of the United States ;tit the approaching election. ) .While 1 accept, with deep gratitude, I this distinguished lionor--and distinguish ed indeed it is I do so with a fearful ap Ijnehension of the responsibility it may i. .. ii.. i,: i. : . - 1 -.i icxcmuaiiy oring wuti u, nmi xvnn a pro I found conviction that it is the kind conli fdenceof rny fellow citizens, far more than (any merit of my own, which has placed 'hie thus prominently before the American jieople. " And fortunate shall I be if this confidence should find, in the events of I the futurb a better justification than is i furnished by those of the p;tst. I) I have carefully read the resolutions of j thp Democratic National Convention, lay ing down the platlorrn of our political faith, and I adhere to them as firmly, as I hpproyo of rthem cordially. And while tlivv adhering 'to them, 1 shall do so with jiv sacred- regard to "the principles and compromises of the constitution' and with hit earnest desire for their maintenance !Mi immediate predecessor in the nom ination by the'Democratic part', who has since established so many claims to the regard and confidence of his country, xvhen Announcing, four years ago, his accept ance )f a similar honor, announced also his determination not to be a candidate fo re election. Coinciding with him in hil views, so well expressed, and so faith fully Carried out, I beg leave lo say, that nolcircumstances can possibly arise, which would induce me again to permit my namejto be brought lorward in connexion xvilh tje Chief Magistracy of our country. 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 Democratic partyof the United States. With an abiding confidence in the recti 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 vernment, when committed to its keeping, (nnd it has been so committed during more 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- tual; respect for the motives of the con tending parties, so that the contest mirht . C be carried on with that firmness and en ergyjwhich accompany (feep conviction, and ;With as little personal asperity as po litical divisions permit, we should do more for jhe great cause of human freedom throughout the world, than by any other tribute we could render to its value. 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, one party is prone to think the public au thority should be strengthened, and to fear any change, lest that change might wealten the necessary force of the gov ernrnent ; while the other, strong-in its convictions of the intelligence and virtue of the people, believes that original pow er isisaler than delegated, and that the solution of the great problem of good gov ernment consists in governing with the! leas! force, and leaving individual action as free -from restraint as is compatible with the preservation of the social system, thereby securing to each all the freedom which is not essential to the well being ol the whole.

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.

Whenever the Public determines ' to do what the. public : authority itselt should readily do, a criM.s arrives not much dif ferent from a revolution.

ZACIIARY TAYLOR AND MILLARD FILLMORE as our candidates for the highest offices in the gift of their countrymen, we take oc casion to express our entire satisfaction, and with heart and hand, shall most cor dially contribute our humble influence to secure their election. Gen. T-iylor is all that we could wish : a sound Whig, a gootl man, and noble spirit.

General Cass probably wrote the para graph we have quoted without having any particular meaning other than 'to say something in eulojrv ol democracv, which he understands about as well as a cour tier comprehends a King, where the one is a parasite and the other a despot. lie has played desperately for the nomination y virtue of which he is now a candidate for the Presidency : and, should he be un- fortunately elected to that office, he would ga;inro it. committed to all those uhraisms hy"hich he has courted popularity, and which are so dangerous to the peace and prosperity of the country. 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.
