MR. MAItKLEY.

Mr. Buchanan, Mr. Iiacki, ar.d" Major
Eaton, have thought proper to bring my
name before the public, a that of a per
ton Implicated, or in ome way concern
ed, in an attempt to induce Oenerjl
Jickvm" to (fire a certain pledge, or

his election aa President of the United
States. One conacrjuenre of the publlca

might hav been persuaded to permit
the errora art inscruraries of Mr. Buch

of recollectlol i0 pass unnoticed ; and
from desire irrie at peace. I might even
have been contnt to overlook their un
kindness ; but, when "Major Eaton, on

If these were not raujyes sufficiently

determine me.

to cast them down from the heigh; which
they have honorably attained, und in ;heir
placet to put those whom 1 regard as
having adopted principles, and avowing a
determination to pursue a course of poli
cy, which I have no doubt would greatly
fleet the prosperity and l. 'ppiuob ol' the
State oi Pennsylvania, and of the whele
Union.
That I was originally fricnd!v to the
election of Gen. Jackon lo the 1 icsidcn

to his country remain, and cer shall re

When I ascertained that lie had taken
to his aid such able and expeiithced ad
viser's as Mr. Clay, Mr. Bush, Mr. South,
ard, and Mi. Barbour, men identified with
'be republican institutions of our country,
in peace and in war ; men who bad en
joyed the confidence of the Republican
Administrations of Mr- Jefferson, Mr
Madison, and Mr. Monroe ; men who had
QES acted and wcte incorporated with'.
the ureal Democratic family of the Union,
what would 6? llif ch'afacfef'ann policy
Mr. Adainsi ArfminHtra'ion. I ronsider
that in these appointment, a pledge was
given to the nation, that the policy which
had been pursued under former Adminis
trations would be pursued under the pre
tent-1 determined therefore that
re plTsniTalTvllT
the people, I would not permit my par
tialities, my disappointments, or my pre
judices, to get the better of my judgment
and patriotism, but that I would judge
the Administration by its measures. If
it continued to support and sustain those
that sustained a system which promotes
national prosperity, American mnufc
lures. Internal improvement, and com
merce; and to cherish peace, and admin
isierthe government with a due regard to
economy, it should receive my cordi-d
and hearty support.
The latter end of December, 1824; !
believe, but cannot with absolute certain
ty say.it was on the 30th. my friend, Mr
Buehansn, called to see me in the eve
ni g at my boarding house. I happened
to be alone iu tny loom:. he sal with me
a coniderab!e Ung'h of time ; our con
versation turned, principally, on the then
"pending PresWennal -JeviKM.Ma,.-.
commenced, by stating that he lelt great
olicitnde for the election of General

every honorable meais lo promote it ; to
which T'Vf plied, ihJi-t" heartily tiTJhetJ ;
with him in opinion. Mr. Buchanan ad !

Mr. Buchanan I thought such a report
was calculated to do the General a great
deal of iniury, and if it were nol will

mentioned further, that there was ureal
plausibility in tuch reports und that their

I felt a great anxiety that he should vote
with I ennsi Ivanii. Mr. Luchanan ir
plicd that no one felt more anxious,- for
vunnus reasons, than he did himself;
that it was important, not only as it re
garded the sucess of General Jackson's
election that Mr. Clay should go villi
Pennsylvania, but on account of his ulte
rior political prospects: declaring that he
(Mr. B.) hoped one day to see Mr. Clay
Piesident of the United States, and that
was another reason why he should like to
see him Secretary of State, in case Gen
Jackson was elti ied ; and that if he was
certain t hat -M r Cla 'a v ie w v were, favor V
able to Gen. Jackson's eleciion, he would
take an opportunity of talking to the
General on the subject, or get Mr. Eaton
to do so; that he thought by doing so he
would confer a particular benefit on his
country, and thai he could see nothing
wrong in it. Mr. Buchanan urged me to
.Use no, delay in aeeing Mr. Clay. I told
him I would, and accordingly called upon
Mr. Clay at his boardini? home. 1 think

evening of the lOih or llth of January
prior to my leaving Washington for
Pennsylvania to attend the courts in
Montgomery county. The conversation
I then had with him was of a very gen
eral character; no mention Was made of
cabinet- appointments, and t did not ascer
tain which of the candidates Mr. play
would support. I have no recollection of
any iinng being 'said in the conversation
with Mr liucnanan about the friends of
Mr. Clay moving in concert at the elec-J
