We need no better assurance of what a public

Whenever we discover the advocates and apolo.

cause of a particular candidate, we may set it down
as a pretty sure indication, that that candidate nei-

i their polK;y, however, to hold out such an idea
to keep up the delusion in order that an organi

Among the numerous evidence that go to us-
lata thia opinion, we will now cite a case from the

Up te ie, the whlgs had for Weral year

wa a very .animatodone iafitr, with, the hope of

Among other causef assigned I by the whig lor
. their mortifying defeat was the ' wijiojmforirj of,
Gen. om' mw, of which they had made
such free use during the election. So wofl"atI
T6ed wad IhS Pctetand Herald that this cirewm-

No we should like to know what new light has
burst upon the Editor's vision hat latent trait
has bacn developed in the character of lien, Har
rison since 1833, that induces the llurald to give
him so widely different a reputation now from what
it did then ! He has undoubtedly grown older and
awrt superanuated, which Certainly caonot add to
his qualifications for the Presidency. Or can it be,
that a nomination by the Conventicle at Harris
burg, has operated like a magic wand, to re-invigorate
the old gentleman, and invest hinj with new
qualities of mind, and secure for him a kind of in
tuitive " or impromptu popularity 1s
But the plain English of .the matter is, that all
these praise of Gen. Harrison which we soe in the
federal presses, ia the stalest u jwfling" that was
ever bestowed upon a bad actor upon Ihe boards of
a theatre. It is a forced business With many of
tho whig Editors; Mr.' Clay having been their
cftote and their only rtal " cAotce" thay have
been " wrung" into the support of old Gen. Harri
son much against theit will. Thousands of the
rcoi'LB among the Southern whigs, however, can
never be forced to swallow the " pill ;" and the con.
sequence will, in all likelihood, be, that Geo. liar
rison will not obtain the electoral vote of a single
Southern State. ' . '
