has created a hih excitement in Ihe pub

Thev know that a Vtrt majority of their
countrymen who take a part on either
side of this controversy, are actuated by
holiest motives. They cJalm to' them
selves the rlt;hl. of expressing their own
opinion, and of actinjr in 'conformity to
the dictates of their own judgment ; but

While, therefure, as freemen,

themselves frankly and fearlessly ; yet,
I s rorn who know their own infirroiiiei

without arrogance or bitterness.
We have assembled, fellow-citizens,
from different parts of the State, to con

Flrrtoml Ticket which we may ourselves !
support,- and which we -eon recommend
10 others who may determine to act with
us in the Presidential' Election. A con

The law of our state, as It now exists,
will not permit us to vote in our respec

tne political nisiory oi our country
roni the period which closed the poliii
cal life of the illustrious Washington,
uown to tne days in wnicn we live, when
ever there were rival Candidates for the
Piesidency, the rivalry sprang from a
difference in the fiartie who divided Ihe
Country. To the honor of the People,
these parties were founded on measures
and principles not on men and Vs-fuR
ule for office. The effect of these con
tests was to bring before the People for
their choice those best-qitalified o ad-
miTmterihe-affaire-of- the-Niof, aceor-
to their views of its policy; and in
evcrv instance, the Candidate prelerre
was decidedly the ablest man of his par
ty. 1 he pending controversy exhibits no
such dignity. It is not a conflict between
opposing principles but a conflict be
tween opposing men and combinations of
menr'Mr " foW
difference" sbout ; me'asuf es --- but on , -competition
for power and' place. On
either side we 'aee"v arrayed Politicians
who have fccarcely before been known to

Federal Constitution the aealots for na
tional encouragement to Domestic Manu

Improvement by some . extraordinary

Three tears ago four Candidates were
Voted for by the People- No cne Obtain
eJ a constitutional majorityi and it de
volved on the House of Representatives
to make a selection from the three who
had received the Rrettrsf number of stif
frages. The choice fell on one of un
questioned falents. of extensive and ac
curate political knowledge, of lone ex
perience -pronounced by Washington
among the first of our public characters
tried, trusted and approved by Jeffer
son, Madison, and Monroe. He selected
for the firs: station in his Cabinet one of
his opponent, distinguished for genius,
eminent as a Statesman, and ardently ad
mired by his friends. Ins'antly, the
