From the Washington Republican.
Our readers will find, on reference to
the proceedings of a public meeting, held
on Tuesday evening, the 2d inst. published
below, that HENRY I. TOOLE, Esq.,
has been selected as the Republican candi
date in this county, for a seat in our next
Legislature. We congratulate, not only our
political friends, but the great mass of in
telligence throughout the county, .
Mr. Toole's acceptance of the nomination;
and feel assured that a more able or zaa" .s
supporter of Constitutional and Southern
rights could not have been selected. His
intimate acquaintance with political history,
undoubted talents, together with his legal
attainments and experience, qualify him in
a peculiar manner to perform the duties ol
legislator. As to the political tenets
cherished by him, we recognise as pre
eminent a love ol Constitutional liberty; a
sincere regard for the reserved rights of
me ruaius; ;m aumuieu auacumeni io sou
thern institutions; a watchful eye to the ap
proach of federalism in any disguise: and
an honest and warm devotion to the inter
cuts of his native State.
At a Republican meeting, held at the
Court house, in the town of Washington,
on the Evening of Tuesday, June 2d, 1840,
Urn. William A. Blount was chosen to pre
side and Geo. Houston appointed Secretary.
1 he objects ci the meeting were to nomin
ate a candidate for the Senatorial district
composed of Beaufort and Hyde; and also
to nominate a candidate in Beaufort, for
the Commons, for scats in our next Le

also to be appointed to attend the State
Convention to be held in Raleigh, on the

subjects; but more particularly touching the
principles which divide parties in the pres

the Harrison and federal parties. Mr. T.
was interrupted by the return of the com

therefore, be presumed to possess an inti

of both counties, recommend him as an
eminently proper person to represent the

a resolution to adhere to the original no

stated brielly his reasons for having declin

sequence of the flattering manner in which
it was urged upon him, did not feel himsell
at liberty to decline any longer. H'.s ac

nomination unanimously confirmed by the

THE VICE PRESIDENCY.
Nashville, Muy 27, 1S40.
Dear Sir: The National Democratic Con
vention lately held at Baltimore, after
nominating with perfect unanimity the
present Chief Magistrate, for re-election
to the station which he has filled with so
much honor to himself and advantage to
the country, having declined making a
nomination for the Vice Presidency, it be
comes proper, in my judgment, that I
should distinctly declare the position which
I occupy before the country, in reference
to the use which has been made of my name
in connection with that office.
Having been unexpectedly placed in
nomination by a portion of my Republican
fellow-citizens, in some of the States, it
was my unalterable determination, oft
en expressed to my friends, from the
day that my name first appeared in con
nection with the Vice Presidency, to be
governed by the wishes of the majority
of the political party, to which I have been
ardently attached during my whole life,
whenever the preference of that majority
should be ascertained in any satisfactory
mode; and in no possible contingency to
yield my own consent to the use of my
name as a candidate by a minority of my
own political friends. j
If, as was at one time anticipated, a full
convention of the Democratic party repre
senting all the States, had assembled and
made a nomination that would have been
conclusive, none would have been more
cheerful to abide by the nomination thus
made, or to give to the nominee (had the
choice fallen upon another; a more cordial
& hearty support, than myself. It appears,
however, that several of the States were
unrepresented in the Convention, and the
selection of the Democratic candidate for
the Vice Presidency was left open for the
separate action ol the Republican party of
the several States.
I entirely concur with the convention, in
the hone exnressed bv that bodv. that
"before the flection shall take place," the
"opinions" of the Republican party "shall
become so concentrated, as to secure the
choice of a Vice President by the electoral
In times like these, when powerful
combinations of various sectional interests,
are r H. . ;-'in extraordinary concert with
our old ' .ppor. .is, the federalists, and
their allies the Abolitionists, against the
cherished principles of our Republican in
stitutions, personal & sectional preferences,
between men of the same political princi
ples, are of no importance. Ihe ancient
enemies of our long cherished principles,
with their new recruits and reinforcements.
are to be met. The pillars, upon which per
manently rest our national independence,
and our beautiful fabric of separate State
sovereignties, are to be defended. And a
these considerations are, in my judgment,
infinitely more important to the country
than the elevation of any individual citizen
to this, or any other office, I trust I may
be permitted to express my sincere desire,
should the"-further use of my name, in
connection with the Vice Presidency, be '
found to interjiose the slightest obstacle
to the entire and cordial union of the De
mocratic party, that it may be prompt
ly wilhdraion by my friends from before
the public. I can have no desire to be a
party to a contest in which I may be thrown
into apparent collision with political friends
whom I esteem, and with whom I have
acted for a long series of years, & especial
ly if such a position sh.ill have a tendency
to weaken the sympathies and energies of
the whole Republican pn ty, and hazard
the safety and continued ascendancy of
their cardinal principles.
The present slrugglc is a fierce one, and
it becomes the duty of every Republican
to defend his post mmfully. If, in my
public career, I have heretofore evinced
any becoming ardor and zeal in the m;in
tcnance of our principles, that ardor is
unabated, that zeal is undiminished; and
altho' my position may be that of an indi
vidual citizen in the ranks of my party, I
shall be found faithfully acting with my
political friends, and, upon all suitable and
proper occasions, resolutely exercising my
rights as a freeman, in maintaining the
Republican principles of our fathers, and
carrying them successfully through the
"ordeal of the popular suffrage."
I am, with high regard,
Your obedient servant,
JAMES K. POLK.

Fincaste, May 25th, IS40. .
In your paper of the 2-id instant, just
received, I find that the Whigs have been
representing Gen. Jackson as having de
serted Mr. Van Buren and declared in fa
vor of Gen. Harrison. In order to correct
somewhat similar misrepresentations,
circulated to some extent in Botetourt,
previous to our late election, 1 wrote to
the old Hero, requesting his permission to
contradict them, and 1 hereto annex a copy
of his reply for publication; which I think,
is quite conclusive, as to his opinion of Mr. .
Van Buren and the leading policy of his
administration. In haste,

"My Dear Sir: Your letter of the 2Gth
ult. has been received and is now before
me. I am not astonished to learn from it,
that the Rivcs Conservatives' should de
ny the authenticity of my letter, written in
answer to one received from Moses Daw
son, Esq., and published by him in the
latter part of the year, 1837, or the first of
the year 1838, approving the financial po
licy of President Van Buren, as set forth
in his message to the extra session of Con
gress in September, 1S37, of separating the
Government from all Banks.
It appears that the Rives Conservatives,
the Abolitionists and Federalists, have
combined to obtain the reins of Govern
ment in their own hands, by a continued
system of deceiving the people by false
hood and slander of the basest kind, forget
ting that the American people are an en
lightened and virtuous people, capable of
self government, who may by the false
hoods oi designing demagogues and poli
ticians, be led astray for a moment;
but the second thought always h.s dis
pelled, and ever will dispel from their .
minds the gross deceptions that have
been attempted to be practised upon
them by these political demagogues, who
think the people are incapable of self-government,
and, to save the people from
themselves, wish to rule vain thoughts!
which have heretofore disappointed the
opposition, and I trust ever will, and must,
so long as thevirtue of the people soars
above the corruptinginfluencc of the money
I ower, which has, for a long time, been
corrupting the morals of the world. But
truth is mighty, and will prevail; and the
virtueof the people will perpetuate our glo
rious Union and happy Republican system
against all the corrupting influence of the
combined money power and modern paper
credit syslem, and will support the Ad
ministration in separating the Government
from all Banks, and restoring the Federal
Government to the express limits of the
Constitution and Independence, as contem
plated by the sages who framed it.

Republican friends, that I am the, author "
