There are two qualifications lacking in the charac-
tor of Gen. Harrison, which neither riches, property,
or honesty, can compensate for. He wants the talents
required lor the proper exercise of the powers vested in
the' President of a Great Nation ; and he holds political
principles which ate repudiated by s democratic repub-

didate to. that dignified station. Either of these two
renders them unnt lor the ottice, let them be ever so
