cheerfully enter upon the task.
Upon thc first news of Gen. Harrison's
nomination by the Harrisburg Convention,
the whigs in the slaveholding States every
where, openly expressed their disappoint

posed it possible to make a stand in the
South on his behalf. But the leaders soon

remarks, for which thc whole .vouth,

They thus conceal the true cause ol

hardness of the time, which are to be
found in the report of the Banks, with the
old U. S. Bank at the head of the list.
I'hat report shows these alarming facts:

every appropriation whatever its obj"Ct or

wmdy dec. aimers against expenditure and
extravagance, take care to concal liie Cc!,
that during the last four years of Gun.
Jackson's adoiinis'ration Thirty Million
of dollars were paid, in discharge of Trust
and Indemnities held under Treaties. In
tii e purchase of Indian L m is anil for Pen
sions, the appropriations for which, were
voted by their whig friends and approved
by themselves. So they suppress the fact,
that during the first tiree years of Mr.
Van Burets administration, against which
they charge the average exp -n iituie ol
Thir!y-s?vcr, and a halt' Millions Eight
een Millions were paid under Treaty stipu
lations for Indemnities, to our own citi

(s-ying i.o'.hing of the cxnense of their
I't'movsil,) and Seven and a half Million to
emioncrs for all of which these gentle
men and their friends likewise voted ot
approved. So they conceal the fact, or ii.
Iheir mad zeal display their own ignorance
by denying it; that near 17 Millions of
this sum, was paid within the last two
jyeais in the redemption of Treasury bills,
issued under I lie act ol 1S37 "with the
view, says the President, to the indul
gence of the Merchants on their clu'v
bonds, and of the dt-posite banks, for il.e
non payment of the public moneys held tation, of which these orators have con
by them." So the account stands against j jured up "Iiiilra Chimera, and Gorgon's
Mr. Van Buren's three years, thus:

and '39, lG,7S5,00u

Making near 42 Millions for those four i

connot be charged as an expenditure
nol the redeeming of Treasury bills, because

Indemnities, because the monev did not
belong lo thc n.ition, but to individuals,

Again tnese wnig Uiators lorget to tell the
neople, I h at il is by turning State's evi-
!, thvy are enabled to make good
accUs!aiioii of extravagance against
t;.c Piesident; and that is, by taking ev
ery payment under an appropriation made
by Congress, though voted for by their
own party and carried against the wishes
of the Piesident and thatof a majority of
his friends. For example, the appropri
ation at one Session to Lightllonses.
against which 40 democrats voted, and
only 16 federalists lo thc Cumberland for discipline, it is now the law, and has
road, against wh.ch 51 democrats voted, ' been for fifty yeais. A to the objection
and onTv 2 I federalists. To say noihingjof placing the Militia under ihe rules and
of the bonus of Fifty thousand dollars to
Gahts and Sca'on for Books; and of a still
greater sum toClat k and Force, whig men,
for their trash, carried by whig votes.
Equally unfounded is the cht.rge against
the Piesident of waste of the public
money, by regal magnificence in the furni
ture of the White House such as his
haying sent four thousand dollars to France,
for thc purchase of a golden Plateau,
and the repetition of the Ogle slander a
bout gold spoons, knives and forks, vases
and cupids as it now turns out, according
to Mr. Lincoln's testimony and that of
ihe vouchers themselves, these very ar
ticles were put chased during Mr. Mon
roe's administration; and that not a single
article of furniture has been placed in the
house at the request or suggestion of the
Piesident. But what will be the horror
of my opponent and of his Log-cabin Ora
tors, when they shall learn the Governor
elect, will have to repose upon a bedstead
of French pattern, similar lo that of the
President's and which is to be found in
actual use in our Governor's white house.
Lo' w h it must be the holy horror of these
economical whigs who declaimed so loud
ly a"ainit extravagant waste of the de
partments at Washington, for the use of
newspapnrs, books, horses, ice, towels
and soup: when they shall learn from the
accounts now on file, during Mr. Clay's

these whig accusers, is the fact, that bills
three times passed the Senate, and were
voted down by ths opposition in thc House,
subjecting these v ry defaulters to the
Penitentiary, who arc now every w.itre
welcomed with open arms into the whig
The Standing Army. This has been
the fruitful topic of alarm and misreprcscn-
diic,"and in reviewing the facts all must
feel astonished at the success of the falsifi
cations upon which our opponents have so
boldly ventured. As it now turns out,
however objeectionable may have been the
Plan of the Secretary of War, it had nei-
' ther the concurrence nor sanction of the
President. The mere ouihne of thc pro
posed plan, to which the President called
the attention of Congress, was for re-organizing
the Militia, a thing to be found re
peated thirty one limes in the Messages
of his predecessors that the Plan in de.
tail was nol matured, or called for by the
House of Representatives, tin; i 1 near four
months after the message. That so far
from concuriing in any proposition for
carrying the Militia out of the State with
view to iheir being trained, the President ny. But to the facts. Lieutenant Hooe
says he thinks Congress has no such pow-jis Court-Martialed, and tried by seven of
er; any more titan 'hey have the power of j his lellow-ofiicers, a majority being South
doing what Gen. Harrison proposed, of ?rn men, wiih a Whig Lawyer, also from
employing teachers for our olU field schools, 'the Sou'h, as the Judge Advocate. He is
So, whilst he concurs wiih the plan
of paying the privates as proposed by Mr.
Poinsett, be docs not agree with Gen.
Harrison, that the ''eomn.is-ioncd and non
commissioned officers alone shall be paid."
That if it be an objection, that the Militia
shall lurnish their own
men's and ammunition,' when ca
regulations of the regular army, when
called into service, it is the same thing as
proposed by Gen. Harrison; but as Mr.
Van I'uren thinks can only be done, when
the Mi!i:ia are called upon 'Mo execute the
laws, sunpress insurrections and repel in
vasions." I cannot bring myself to Ihe
belief, it is necessary to notice the election
eering absurdities which have been, and
s'ill ate mged upon this subject. The
people must see and understand these
miserable attempts at imposition. The
charge can now only be supported, by
pronouncing ihe President "a liar!" Ian
guagn such as this held by two Represen
tatives in Congr- ss, one from Virginia and
the other I feel ashamed to acknowledge
from our State, is alone worthy of a pirty
who in their ruian warfare, have violated
every feeling of sociciy. The Secretary
of War, h s affirmed upon his honor as a
man, that the plan was not matured, and
of course the President could not have
seen it, until some four months after his
Message to Congifss. Whatever these
gentlemen may think, they greatly de
ceive ihcmselvcs, if they suppose, the peo
nle will imp!Ove of such language, or
doubt the word of one, distinguished alike
for his honor, and that chivalric brart ry
which impelled him to unfurl his country's
fla"-, in a foreign land, in defiance of an in
fu nit ted populace, and to stand nndaunttd
under the magic influence ol its stripes ai d
stars. None will doubt thc word of su h
a man, nor can they question that of ihe
Presideol of the Untted btates? without an

I his matter has been rejected by both
branches of Confess, and tbre is no
more dang-r of its being revived by the
President if re e'ec.ed, than there is of
Oen. Harrison's renewing his proposition
in regrd to the Militia & Military instruc
tion. shouU he become Prefiden'.

in, of deciving the pcoIe. The
President vas denounced for failing lo re

Mile. Yet every one mut now admit
h course pursued by many f;f his depu
fies. jus-ifies th-President "in n fusing to
continue power in the hands of an enemv,
() be used to his prejudice. At' first, this
m uter was lft to these deputy 'marshals
and to the r.e:ghboi hood politicians, but
the success of the thing foon brought it
before the public from the stump. The
charge is, that the information sought, is
toena'deloe President, to know bow to
'Cgulate direct taxes. If such was th4; ob
ject, neither the'President nor his friends
are responsible for it. The bill for taking
he Census was reported and would have
been p..s-cd, without any reference to
what is row so loudly complained of, but
for one of the petty leaders of the oppo
sition, Kice Garland, upon whose mo'ion,
was inserted the clause, under which
thee poultry and other statistical ques
tions ae now put to the farmers of thc
country. The bill passed without ob
jection, and was voted forbv every whig
in Congress. Yet this Chairman of the
great whig committee, whilst be has not

self as the author of the law. But there
ex sts no necessity . fa resort to direct taxes,
and those who assert sucii a thing, know
it is without foundation. The Piesident
and Secretary of the Treasury both say, a
direct tax cannot be necessary, nor even an
increase of duty upon any of the neces
saries of life, such as Sail, Iron or Sugar
as Wines and Silk will give ample means,
should Congress exceed in its appropri-,
ations, what he may deem proper. The
charge then is false as to the design of the
measure, and si il 1 more false as to its origan-.
The Hooe case and Neoho Testi
mony. This, of all others, is the most
shameless charge that has been invented
by the Opposition. Yet it has been urged
with ;dl the zed of truth, and all the sin
cerity of a well founded fear of its being
carried into execution. The President
has admitted negroes to give evidence a
gaiot a gallant Lieutenant of the Navy,
and is in favor of allowing such testimony
to be used i 1 the Federal Courts against
while men. Save us from the mercies of
those who arc willing to sell and to whip
while men, but who have such a holy non
a.ror against the dangers of Negro testimo-
ch 11 ged among other things, with whip
ping lite sailors contrary to thc rules of
the Navy and ihe regulations of his ship,
and with using contemptuous words against
his supeiiors. Two free negro sailors are
offered as witnesses, and decided by the
Court, with the aid of their Whig Judge
Advocate, to be admissible. They testify
to the whipping and to the speaking of the
words. Eleven other witnes-es, who aie
white men, swear 10 the whipping, but
not to the words. The C01 rt convict of
the whipping, and acquit as to the charge
of speaking the contemptuous words. The
ma'ter is carried before ihe Secretary of
ihe Navy, and by him referred to the law
officers of the Government the Attorney
General and District Attorney of Co
lumbia, both of whom say, the question of
admitt ing the negroes ss witnesses is net
fairly raised, as the accused was acquitted
on that part of the charge to which the
free negroes were alone examined, and
there e xisted no doubt as to the truth of
the rest. The conviction is approved by
the Secretary of the Navy, and on the
President's being appealed fo, he under
these circumstances, declined lo interfere.
But the beauty of the thing does not stop
here. The Whig Lawyers say, ihe testi
mony of the negroes was illegal, because
the usage of Courts Martial has been a
gainst receiving it, for the last fifty ) tar3.
The answer is, that in point of firt, the
usage has been the o'her way therefore
Congress should legislate on the subject
so says the President, and so vote the .
Democrats but so, do not vole the IVhigs
Having thus reviewed the list cf WThig
humbugs, and exposed their many pre
varications and misrepresentations, allow -
me r.ow to place them to ihe laboring 03r,
by examining some matters touching, the
conduct of their candidate for the Presi
dency. General Harrison is brought be
fore the country as a candidate, without
tho vote of a single Southern State. He
