and my' friends may rest assured thai I will never
place it out of my power to repeat, with perfect
truth, the declaration I at that time Kit myself
called on to rnake.
I did not on that occasion, nor do I now, profess
to be in.lihVront lo a station to which every citixen
uf the United Slates may aspire, by juat and houo
rable means, without in the least interfering with
the rights of others, because I did not then, nor do

worthy the office of Chief Magistrate of the most
powerful confederation ot Stales that aver existed,
und lo occupy the highest station among men, if it
could be gniiied without the sacrifice Of my princi

olject of my most earnest desire, as it may properly
be that of tvery worthy member' of this great
community, where no man is precluded from ob

The present occasion seems to me one which not
only justifies but renders it incumbent on me to
express myself with that perfect frankness, 07
which communications of this kind between friends
and brethren of the same principles, should, in my
opinion, always be characterized. 1 will, therefore,
with your permission, proceed to state my seuti.
meiits on this last head a little more at large.
That 1 am dseply and gratefully impressed with
the zeul and consistency of that regard and confi
dence, so fully manifested by the General Assembly
of 1 ha State, of Missouri, as well as by many others
of my fellow citizens iu various other portions of
the Union, under circumstances apparently so
discouraging, you cannot doubt for a moment. It
is on the contrary, iu the unleigned respect Icber
ish for those who have offered me these testimonials
of continued attachment, and I find tha strongest
motives to meet them at tha threshold, by a free
and frauk expression of my views and feelings 00
the subject, indicated in tbesa declarations of my
1 beg you, therefore, to believe ma when I inform
you that the personal interest which 1 feel in tha
selection of a candidate for the next Presidency, is
restricted to a consideration of tha ultimate infill

principles on which 1 have earnestly labored to
administer this Government which 1 have aver
believed, and still believe, essential to tha freedom
and happiness of our common country, and with
which I have always been content to stand or fall.
Although I might i.ever t'oel myself at liberty to
shrink from any and every responsibility which it
may please the Democracy of the Uoited States to
impose on me, and which is consistent with tha
respect daa to the people on tccount ot. the high
Nation I have weld by their choice. I should, nev
ertheless, be Got merely as well, but better, satisfied
at seeing those great objects accomplished under
the auiptces of some one of the numerous names
to be found in the ranks of Democracy, whose

' Respectfully your friend and fellow citisen.
Tha extraordinary sessioo of Congress which is
called lor tha last of May, fan well be called the
Clay session. It is his all over, in its origin, pre
texts, objects, end conduct. Hs gave notice of it
before he left Kentucky last fsll ; had it put to the
Governor's roessags bad a law passed for tbe
special election ; and came hare and proclaimed it
in the Senate chamber, wbia General Harrison
was in Ohio. It is, therefore, the offspring of Mr.
Clsy t it has its origin with him. Tbe pretext for
it is absurd : the state ol the revenue is tho pretext
a deficiency of revenue is tbe pretended cause.
Who can be deceived by this T All America knows
that five millions of Treasury notes, in addition to
the annual revenue, wu given to tbe new Adminis
tration. Five millions of these notes were set apart
for them, after the 4(b of March, in addition lo the
daily accruing revenue of tbe year ; and surely this
should have lasted, if not till December, when Con
gress meets regularly, at least till September, when
tbe extra would nave run Into the regular session
saved an enormous expense, and enabled the regu
lar session to have adjourned three months sooner
by meeting three months sooner. Tbe object of
tbe extra session is not revenue ; it is not to supply
an empty Treasury, although Mr. Clay and bis
party did what they could to empty it by their
distribution lav. The real object is to -empty it,
first, by the distribution la w, and then get a pretext
for the new Tariff, and for the surplus revenue,
which is to go into banks which will lend it to
members of Congress. The real object of the
Clay session is to enact all the Clay measures, and
first of all to eaipfy the Trtcmtry, by giviog the
land revenue to tbe States ; alter that comes the
new Tarifll the new Bank, the assumption of Stale
debts, Ihe expunging of the expunging resolution,
and repealing tbe Independent Treasury, and sll
the other Clay measures which lbs country has
rejected for so many years. It is known here that
all the Federal party

aud tyrannising ovsr the country by means of his
jexpected msjonlies in the two llousea, and fkstening
the mill stone of a fifty milboo Bank round the
necks of the Democracy, with tbe full belief of
loading them down forever, and Ciushing litem Id
death with that kooe. " For such porposee as these,
and gratifying revenge against General Jackson,
by re-establishing the old Bank sentence of eon
deronation against him, is ths object of the Clay
session ; snd it will be truly a reign of terror
After that if Ihe spring elections go in his favor)

sioo, compared the defeated Democracy to a con
demned criminal, standing uudtr the gallows, with
a rope round his neck, end tbe cart just ready to
be driven off, aod which at tbe end ol the session,
when moving to dismiss Blair and Rives, rehearsed
Ihe most Senatorial, classic, aod polite story of

'No less than eleven Slates have wow to hold

farmers of the country cannot attend them, and
that the Federal party which is strongest in the

This plan, in which Curtis himself led ihe way,
has been followed up by the same party, and a

It is said that the Extra Session is called fr the
purpose of giving relief lo Ihe country, and car
rying out the Harrison pledges and promises.
How is it lo do all this? The following sre ths
measures to be acted on when it convenes i
1st. To give away the proceeds of the Public
Lands and thereby create a necessity (or Increasing
the Tariff and imposing new taxes.
2dly. To create a national debt of 23 or 30 mil
Hone of dollars, and relieve the North by spending
the whole of it in that quarter.
3dly. To establish a new United States Bank
for the benefit of the nabobs at ths North and in
England, to rule snd regulate the affairs of this
country at (heir pleasure, 4 to make the rich
richer, and the poor poorer."
4lhly.' To repeal the Independent Treasury law
by which tbe public money is now kept safely snd
according lo the Constitution, and to restore it to
the new Bsnk lo loan to its favorites, and speculate
oo, without paying a dollar for its use.
These are the measures contemplated by Ihe
Fedetsl party to give relief to the country. We
have no' doubt of Iheir tendency lo benefit the
North ; so did ths iniquitous and oppressive Tariff
at our expense, but terrible and desolating will be
their effects on the South, such, indeed, as no one,
except those who may have a fancy for seeing
14 gnat (row in the streets of Norfolk and Charles
ton," can anticipate without-gloomy apprehension. '
If these measures should bs adopted "hard
times" have but commenced here. If another
Bank should be established on tbe old plan, we may
look to see such scenes of distress as have never
before beep witnessed io this country. The new.
and powerful u regulator will break up Ihe local
Banks, and these in turn will break up tha people
without mercy or forbearance. There can be no
question about it, these consequences would be cer.
tain and inevitable.
