who dared to assort that her-vote would
be regulated by Virginia, s and that by an
independent vote, she hat proven to the
world ahe is not ignorant pi cer own im

canditlatea for the presidency where csn
we find one whose character secures to
us what we have reason to expect from
JOHN C. CALHOUN f In him we find
combined the three great qualifications,
honesty capability and faithfulness to tbe
Constitution a man, who by a long train
of services to his country haa proven to
IfirwoTld tharihe pwmoikar of her hap

duct who in every situation in which he
has been placed, haa gircn us tbe most
unequivocal evidence of his aupcrior tal
ents whose liberal sentiments and opin

dance with the great mass of the people
and proclaim him an en ti-redfe whose
view of men and measures is with the
penetrating eye of one ready fo detect
the least aberration from the path of po
litical, rectitude and, . in ..abort, whose
whole course of pubfic conduct marks
him the disciple of. Washington. Such
is the man. who North-Carolina abould
support, and with a patriotic exultation do
we behold the daily increase of his friends,
in opposition to all the trick, stratagem
and subterfuge which is called in requisi
