.Since Mr. Riven deserted the rajikiof the Admin

'..as' our reader! doubtless know the Democratio
Republicans, Federal uWuigsH and Conferva
tives or Rivet men. In the- two last Legislatures,
the " Whigs" and Conservatives together had
iall majority .over the Administration party, but
in consequence of A refusal of the Rives party to
act cordially iiher with. the.,. W.higs'V or Demo
crats, neither of these two great parties could gain
the ascendancy, the other holding the balance of

over, bag and baggage, to the ' log cabin ..and

number of his friends to give the Federalists a
smatl majority in the Legiilaiurc.
The Republican strength is not weakened, ex
cept in hi desertion of the Hive's party, which has
' been lieretofore more than half-acting with the
. ..Whigs, but have .now only gone over in name; and
to a hearty co operation with the Federal Harrison
party.! Tho most satisfactory conclusion which we
are able to form of the result front the reports on
both sides is, that the partite stand in the Senate
10 Repuhliciins and 18 Federalists, a tie : jn the
i House, there is a l-ederal majority of 8 or 10.
, ' This majority in the Legislature is, jiowevef, no
; evidence that the" popular vote will be in favor of
Harrison. -.Tho "Whigs" themselves admit that

conchuively demonstrated that the "hard times,'' so
much haiped upon by the Fedeial iarty, are not altri.
butable to the Government, but to the Banks, the great
montcd powers of the couiifry ; who have, wilhiu Uie
f last seventeen months, withdrawn from circulation for
ty millions of dollars, thus creating the great scarcity
of money. And further, that the "hard times" consisted
entirely tiid solely in the scarcity of money for that
our commerce is quite as extensive and flourishing as
it has ever been our country abounds in great plenty
of all 'Uie necessaries and luxuries ol lilo ws, havo
neither been visited by war, pesUlupce, of famiiie.1
Tho Government, he said, could only cause bard limes
by levying high taxes on the people and squandering
the money. The taxes levied by tho Government are
, win Her now, than they have ever been before, and near
ly all the money collected is immediately paid out
.agaia ainoug-usf - and a scarcity of money can-onjy
be created by wiUidrawing it from among the people
and not leltiug it out again. He proceeded lo assign
his reasons why he could, not support Harrison tor
President ; because Harrison's principles were diamet
rically opposed to those of tho Republican party ; be
being an Internal Improvement man, a. Tariflile, and
