The natural policy of the Country" The
cause of all our wo." Could an old patriot of
1774, mich as Patrick Henry, rise from bis
tomb, clothed in all hi- human faculties, and
behold the political strife, and factious agita
tion, which has shaken this country to its
centre since 1830 and which still continues
to convulse it, with the most unnatural and
pernicious ferment, would he not exclaim
How is this ? I thought our independence
was achieved ! I thought our free institutions
were permanently established by a written
Constitution, onder the social guarantee of
Equal Rights! What means all this agita
tion and racket! Why it exceeds all that we
everinade to gain independence. Surely you

. Since the late elections, the signs are nu
merous and decisive, that the distant portion
of the whig party have come to the- determi
nation to no longer advocate "Clay and a
National Bank." They find that a vast ma
jority of the people of America are opposed to
both; and we are now convinced that i-iay
will not be the candidate of that party for Pre
sident in I844i Messrs. Webster, Cushing,
and Spencer, three of the most influential
Federal leaders iu the Northeru and Middle
States, have broke ground boldly against both
Clay and a Bank ; and the papers of the party
in all directions are taking the same course.
The Boston Atlas, a leading whig paper in
New England, says " It is in vain to try to
bring into the field the unbroken force of the
whig party upou the the name of Henry Clay;
and the sooner hfs friends know it the better."
Several of the whig papers in Ohio attribute
their recent .defeat in that State to the unpop
ularity of Clay and a National Bank. Hear
the Cincinnati Times, a thorough whig paper:

country has declined; labor has sunk iu value;
and Driiduce has fallen in price. For twelve
years .we have witnessed nothing but panic,
excitement, marching and counter marching
by the legions of political parties; ball-roll iug
log-cabin making, and hard cider drinking;
with hickory poles, and Jackson clubs; and
what are the fruits? Every drill of the people
into ultra parties, has resulted in bitter and
. poisonous fruit. OuV noble and useful mer
chants are left idle with no commerce to prose
cute. Our tonnage has been destroyed by
foreign treaties, which never would have dis
graced the country, but for this universal agi
tation of infuriated parties. The workshops
have been emptied, to make noisy politicians
ot useful workmen. The farmer has been
dragged from his plough in the furrow, to
swear and shout in the political labor of some
demagogue's club. The smith has left his
anvil to turn political stroller, and act strange
farces on the stage of the factious juggler!
And what, we repeat, has been the fruit?
Every change has only plunged us deeper and
deeper in'.o political degradation, and finan
cial embarrassment ; till all that ought to
crown a people with contentment and abun- j
dance, has been sacrificed at the Moloch-1
shrine of Faction ; except the bountiful and
gracious gifts, which God 'provides even for
the most unworthy of his creatures. Yes !
every agitation, every panic, every trans
formation ot our ludustnous population into
idle politicians has resulted in worse time.-
in deeper distress in fruit more poison
ous.and bitter. Then why continue thU
eternal warfare of ulti a parties? .Why con
sume the energies of the people, in a vain
struggle to better your condition, by some
sbort-iived artificial state ot prosperity, which
even wbt-a attained, cannot long -endure t
" YVe are one people we live under excellent
Constitutions except in Rhode Island our
country is noble, fertile, pleasant, boundless
and if we pursue the course dictated by
Nature and Reason Truth and Justice
we shall be happy ; we shall be prosperous;
we shall be ere at. Nature has left us nothing
to struggle against, but our own passions.
The violence of these has torn us to piece

can be no end, so long as our merchants,
mechanics, farmers, and laborers, suffer them
selves to be seduced from their occupations,
in order to destroy their usefulness, by be
coming political brawlers and panic makers.
The present organization of political parties,
is not ouly, therefore, pernicious iu its cob
sequences, but it is made of a fundamental er
ror of our whole, system of government a
misconception of the seat of power; which,
after all, lies in public opinion, independent
of political parties ; and which public opinion
is now arrayed against any attempt to plunge
the country into afresh agitation, as if a new
war of independence against a British tyrant
was about to be waged. The people now
ask themselves, what have we gained by our
party squabbles for the last twelve years?
What can we gajii by renewing them?

their influence to mitigate and assuage the
ferocity of faction, and tranquilize the public
mind to a successful prosecution of their va

that our truo policy does not admit of such de

Clay, in Ohio." The Cincinnati Renubli
can, another decided whig paper, says "The
result ot tne late elections here only proves
that our people are opposed to Henry Clay
and a National Bauk." The Ohio Free
Press, another strong whig paper, comes out
against Otay, and says the late disastrous de
teats of the party are attributable "to the poli
cy of presenting him as the impersonation ol
the party." And the Expositor, a whig paper
published at Carlisle, Penn., also "breaks
ground against the dictator as follows : M
llay is not our 'choice for the Presidency,
nor do we believe he ever can, under any
circumstances, be elected."
These are ominous signs of discord among
tne coons, and we recommend them to the
special attention of our opponents, who seem
to evince so deep an interest iu what they are
pleased to call the discords in the democratic
rauks. What do the Clay whiggery beraabouts

'I think that all attempts to effect vour
lordship's purpose will fail, and I fear thev
might give offence if urged with importunity.
I was asked, 'What would the English Gov
ernment think of the Sublime Porte, if it were
to call upon the Sovereign, of England, to
alter the fundamental law of their country,
and change its domestic habits and cuslcms,
in order to please the Turks?'
"I could perceive, in spite of the cood-
humored politeness with which this question
was asked, that there was something like
wounded feeling in the speaker. The 'Turks

There is something irresistibly ludicrous
in this brief and frank statement of bis lord
ship ; and its application to the course of
England towards this country cannot but strike
every recder. The institution of slavery is
erjusilly "interwoven with the frame of society"
in mis country; equally "intimately connec
ted with its laws, habits, and customs;" and
equally a part of the ''fundamental laws of the
country." Yet we are called npou by the
fanatics of England, and that ministry, which
is in some measure dependent on them for its
existence, to do precisely what even the
gravity of the Turk could not think of with
out laughing ; and, what is more, we are stig
matised by that philanthropic and abusive na
tion with every epithet of obloquy, because
we decline this modest proposition.
One cannot, on this occasion, forbear re
verting to the posture in which - the Govern
ment of the United States is placed by the
article in the famous treaty of Mr Webster,
which stipulates that our foreign ministers
shall in future be instructed to do piecisely
what has placed my Lords Palmerston and
Ponsonby in such a ludicrous position. We
will suppose that Commodore Porter, our le
preseulative at the Sublime Porte, should, in
obedience to his instructions, and in confor
mity with the said treaty, propose to the Turk
ish minister the abolition of that system which
is so obnoxious to England everywhere, ex
cept in her own Eastern possessions: would
not the grave old Musselman stroke his beard,
and laugh outright at the proposition? And

The Standard misunderstands us, or mis
construes our remarks upon the subject of the
offices to be disposed of: we are not " shock
ed at the notion of placing democrat? in of
fice by the Legislature." Far from it. We
wish to see no coon who has made himself
busy in electioneering, kept in office.
We desire that the same measure shall be
meted out to the coons that they measured
to the democrats. We have no idea of feed"
ing a nest of coons there in Raleigh, who have
abused the democratic party publicly aud
privately, with all their ability. No ! They
turned out (he democrats, and now let them
walk in turn. But this is what we did say
and do mean: Let those who are appointed
to office, be equally as capable to fill it as
those who may be removed, and more so.
I he standard knows that there were some
disgraceful appointments made by the last
Legislature. Let none such be made by this.
And in all its transartious, let the Legisla
ture run into no abuses for which the last
Legislature was censured. Such is our
meaning, which has been misunderstood by
the Standard ; and we have no doubt such is
tha idea of the Meckleuburg Jeffersontan. j

high distinction of being all honest men 1 If
so, his impudence is only excelled by his ig
norance of human nature. We do not pre
tend to say that there are no dishonest demo
crats, but we do protest against whig swindlers
being called democrats, as in the case of
Swartwout. This makes several times that
the Observer has tried to shuffle Swartwout on
to the Democrats, when he knows, if our in
formation be correct, that the coons of N.Yoik
nominated bim for the Vice Presidency.
Now the Editor of the Observer, were be
to be sworn, could not , say, positively, lhat
Swartwout is a demociat, (or a " focofoco"

the democratic party, he posifvely asserts
what he does not know to be true, merely up
on the authority of a New York city editor
