the vigilent apprehensions of all who aro not be
lievers in Presidential infallibility. It was a feeler,
to see how far the gratitude of the nation would
carry them. Why did not tin- President await the
assemblage of Congress ? Why did he not consult
the R representatives of the eop!e I Sir, the an
swer has been furnished. lie dared nut trust
them. He was afraid the Bank would corrupt the
tnemlers; and, having lately assumed 1o him-olf
the guardianship of the public morals, he wished
to remove all .temptations to do wrong.
Yes, he removed the money of the county from
the place where the law had placed it, where it
was confessedly and notoriously safe, and placed it
where ? Who knows w here the public treasure is ?
Is it in any Bank. over,. which Congress have any
control ? No one can tell whether or not it he safe.
Sir, in all free Governments, the right over the
public money has been retained w ith jealous care
to the immediate representatives of the people,
In the country from whence we sprung, it has been
retained with the grasp of death, and has Iven the
instrument by which the Commons of (treat IJrit

freedom. Our own Constitution, equally jealous
of Incentive power, has reposed it in the only

From the Sprrch of Mr. Ilrntrii, in the Virginia Le
gislature, on the lit ct ion of a F. States Senator.
The signs of the times seemed to have marked
Mr. Van Buren as the suc'-ssor to (Jen. Jackson,
and the practical question now pending was, whe
ther he should have the support of Virginia.
He said he knew nothing of Air. Van Buren,
personally, and should therefore say nothing. He
had supported him for the Vice Presidency at a
time when he thought him injured, and when he
was almost identified with the Administration of
General Jackson, whose measures, up to that peri
od, .Mr. B. had approved. Was lie hound, in eon-
isfeney, to support him also for the Presidency ?;

ABUSE OF THE POWER OF REMOVAL FROM
Some of the friends of General Jackson have
asked how it happens that there has not, heretofore,
lieen any complaints of the exercise of the power
of removal by the President. A very satisfactory
answer is at hand. The power hail not been abused !
The Government had been administered for 40
years without an abuse of the power, and the e.xer-
cise of it, we all know according to the well esta-j
blishod principles of human action, would not be
complained of as long as this was the case. Look
at the fliers. During the 40 years of the admini
stration of Washington, the two Adams's, Jeflorson,
M adison, and Monroe, the removals amounted to
TO ! Not two for each year. How has it lieen du-
ring Jackson s administration ? 1 aking into consi.

WAR BETWEEN FRANCE AND THE UNITED
On the policy of such an occurrence, the Journal
iles Debates, a ministerial paper, thus expresses it
self:" We do not hesitate to say that all the wars
practicable or possible for France, the most foolish,
the most tranche, the most imnolitic. thnt l.;si.
would cause the loudest laughter at St. Petersburg,.
iierhn, and the Hagtie, and which would most af-
flict all the friends of liberty in Europe, would be
a war between 1- ranee and the United States.
Only conceive the cries of joy w hich the men
vyho lalor to recuscitate the party of the Holy Al
liance would utter, w hen they siv France employ
ing forces and the power which she has acquired
since the revolution of July, in a struggle against
the republic of the United States when they saw
those two people who, in the Old and New world,
represent the cause of liberty, stupidly warring
against each other, what intrigues would be set on
foot against us at home, w hilst we were occupied
against brother freemen abroad I"
From the brief and unimportant debate which fol
lowed the presentation, on Wednesday, of the pa
pers relative to the American claim, it is evident
that the French Chamber is resolved to "o fully
into the question, and, without taking the word of
either Minister or Committee, assure itself of the
justice or injustice of the demand.
This should have been done before. The ques
tion has excited great discussion, even amongst the
b rench ministerialists. Thus the Memorial Bor-
dehis is as indignant as President Jackson himself

at the rejection of the claim by the Chamber ;
whilst the Courner de Lyon, also Ministerial, and
representing the manufacturing interests of Lyons,
upholds the necessity of refusing a demand so im

Lyons has lost considerably the supply of the
American market, which it once possessed in a

OFFICE-HOLDERS' CAUCUS. S
Let the People of North Carolina observe well the
manoeuvres of the Van Buren office-holders and office
hunters. Never was there, in any country, a fraterni
ty more thoroughly drilled than this Regency partv,
which has ramified its furces throughout every State m
Arrogantly professing to be the Republican 7Vr7,
they are attempting to persinde the people that the ex
istence of that party, and the welfare of the country,
depend upon the elevation of their candidate to tho
Presidency. They have appointed a meeting, to be
held in Baltimore next May, f jT the purpose, as they
pretend, of silectini? a suitable candidate ; while it is
notorious that their candidate is alreadu chosen bv tho
ofice-holdi rs and ojfice-hitntt rs ; and that Martin Van
Buren is their candidate. Accordingly, although tlieir
Convention, as they call tlieir intended Caiu is, is, ro-f
ftssedly, lbr the purpose of uniting nion some one, af-
ter clue deliberation and interchanging of sentiments,
by men from all parts of the United States, it will he
composed of those only who have already made up their
minds to support the heir apparent. The ("auctrs will
therefore meet; and, after going through the farcical
forms of a Mock-Convention, they will unanitnousiv
recommend the Hon. Martin Van Buren to the support
of tho People, ns the only man who can preserve the
unity of the Rt jmhlican Party. If any one douhs.
this, let him look at the character of everv meeting
that has been held to appoint delegates to the Caurvs ;
let him inquire into the jiolitical sentiments of the del
egates; and if he does not find them all lhorouh-Q
intr Van Buren men, pledged to support him, or, at lea.-t
not committed, we will acknowledge that the Magician
has lost his wand, and become a plain honest politician.
"In the corrupted currents of tin's world,
OiTences' gilded hands may shove bv justice;
And oft 'tis seen, the wicked prize itself
Hays out the laic.'"'
Thus has it been under the present Administration cf
the General Government.
Availing himself of the corruption of human nature,
and of the means which Ins patronage, with its "gild
ed hand," aftbrds of operating ujxin that corruption, he
has "bought out the law," or, in plain terms, lias temp
ted and seduced many venal men to sustain him in ins
law less course.
The offices that were created for the benefit of the
country are considered, by the party now in power, r.s
their property, and are accordingly distributed tl.r ti.e
sole purpose of rewarding or purchasing advocates.
The subordinates following, as is natural, the exam
ple of their head, use their patronage, and the influence
of their ouices, to serve their friends, and rill their ow n
pockets, by peculation and fraud.
The late investigation of the Post-Offiee Department"
has developed the most stupendous system of cornip-"'
tion, and disclosed f.cts,at which even the secure skulk
ers behind the throne of the infallible are aghast.
The Reverend (!!!) Obadiah B. Brown, the Chief
Clerk in that Department, has carried on a high hand.
His offences are so rank, and so glaring, that even the
unblushing Benton has not the eifronterv to def.-nJ
him; but he has been driven to the necesst v of resign
ing, because, to use iiis own language, "some of the
friends of the Administration are desirous that I (lie)
should do so, after w hat has been jjaid against me (him)
in the Senate "
This is the first bright speck we have seen for some
time in that quarter of the horizon. It afibrds a glim-0
mering of hope, that the cloud which hangs over our
country may yet be dissipated before we are whelmed
Almost every thing depends upon the firmness ami
decision of the Whigs in the Senate. Thev have thin

votion to their country that would have added lustre to
a Cicero, or a Cato.
Should the next Senate contain, as some apprehend,
a majority in favor of lawless power, we fear that our
experiment with free republican institutions will fail,
and, thereby, disappoint the sanguine hopes of the
friends of Liberty, gratify the wishes of its enemies,
anl restore those arbitry principles which pervaded
the world before the dawn of the American Revolu
tion. We cannot, yet, relinquish the hope that there is
enough of intelligence among the American People to
discern the perils of tlieir condition, and enough of spi
