G RstTLEMRM t In compliuoce with your request,
I Malm to reply lotharemduitonof the Democrat
ic Republican Slate Rights Convention, handed to
me tins morning. I certainly fuel highly honored
in being selected as the' Democratic Candidate for
Governor, under circumstances o fl ittering to my
fadings, by a body so resectable and intelligent
as that of I ha Convention, under whose authority
you have acted. Whilst I h id no wih again to
enter into the stirring and exciting scenes of a po-
niiCHi cauvasi, i do not leal mysclt at liberty to de
cliue a nomination procecdkig from such e s xirce,
Sanctioned as I have reason to bjlievo by at least
that portion of my fellow-citizens, whose wishes I
am under such strong obligation to obey.
It ii now up ward of twAtty-five years aincot
first mingled in tbo active politics of the duy
then a young man, the resident iif a County whose
ttiliiilui auti-liavo aalnirod . wil h such steady wnenitn
Hy to the principles of the republican party 1 1 es
poused with seal and ardor, the cause in which I
found the country then engsged in the maintenance
of. the, riihlsaud honorjuf Ibe eation, .ThuyraiiifldL
in llio iKiimil ol lMmiicrucy and Inught to reepeel
the virtue and intelligence of the tenple, I early
imbibed those doctrines of political faith, whtch ile
iy lo the Federal Government the exercise of
powers not delegiedr and holds mviolnt the
served Rights of the Slates. With these con vie
lioni it has been my object on alt political questions
both to vote and act; with that onrtv. who-te nnm
innbW t Miev'el1MlWt"ri1Hktpk, 'if the
Lunslitution, as well as the emMtujeuta wtshea and
feelings of the great body of the .'people. I have
chose, thus to act with men of my own poliiical
views, believing it the surest means of advancing
such measures and principles as I moit approved.
Tnis "ruto "of net inn Tod'Tne loths support iif Mr.
Va-t Huron at the last Presidential election, and
like thousmds of others I doubt not, with as disin
tere'stud nioltves as those who-protss an great a
horror, at sharing in the " sjioilsof the viclor."
Nof do I hesitate to avow my intention to support
him in the cmninz contest, in preference to the in
dividual who has tamo selected as his opponent.' I

power of es'ablishing an Unite! States Bank, and
to (ho right of appropriating the public ovi wv to

free institutions, to render, Ihe people q tiet and
prosperour, and gi3tad litirinl accurityji the Un

Having thus candidly assigned lha reasons fr
my support j it can hirdly ba noccsnary to slate ibe
grounds of my objections to Ihe opposing candidale,
If it Ihe Convention by which Gem Hirrin wis
noninated, not a single man fiom a slave-holding 1
State had lha temerity to tote for him, l caw

fact, lhat he ts allied with, and supported by, a '
