Democratic Republican Nomination,
FOE OOVBBSoa, '
LOUIS D. II GNRYi
Mr. Claif i Legacg. V
, Mr. Clay; h abort time before taking his leave
of Congress, nnuounced hi last legacy to the pso
pie of the United State. -1 his legacy consist ia
n series of Resolution marking out bis policy (or
ihe future Government ol the country. Under it,
lie proposes to indense tho expenditure from what
they were the last year of .Mr. Van Buren's ad
ministration, say 22J millions, up to 20 millions
per annum. In 1840,. Mr. Clay and hie co work
ers told the people that an annual expenditure of
33 millions was entirely too extravagant, and that
the expense of Government ought to bo reduced
to some 14 or 15 million a year. Now however,
that the party have succeeded in riding into power
on this bobby and others, Mr. Clay proclaims
that the expenses ought to be raised up to SO
million!, and hii follower with one voice, say
- Amen to it. -
But this is not allhe not only propose to raise
the expanse of Guvermnvnt to the scale of 20
millions, but lie is for doubling the taxes on Iho
country fur raising the Tariff up ti 30 per ceni
not only in violation of the compromise act, but in
direct violation of his own, and his party' most
solemn pledge to the American people in 1840.
To enforce thee odious propositions and scheme

fict, that many if hot ell the Federal Whig
papers in thcFouth have come-out in favor- ot a
Pro'idire Tariff, nod so strongly that some of the
miti- Par ill Republican portion of ho parly have
("Kidcmoed their course, and denounced it as
i.j.poted to the vital interests of tho 8 .nth. From

Democratic Victory in Keio Orleans. The

A Democratic Mayor ha been elected in Pert '
land, Maine, another Republican gain and victory. '.
.&- It i stated that the late gloriou Democratic
victory in Connecticut was gained on 11)0 open
issue of no protection. This ia csuse for fresh
congratulation to the South, that in the very midst
of the manufactories of New England under ihe
overshadowing influence of the Protectionist them,
elves, the broad banner ot Free Trade and no
protection, wave in triumph. - It is another ver
ideation of the wi) remark of Mr. Jefferson, that
" the Northern Democracy are the natural allies
or Ihe South."
The Town election in New York have cone
almost universally in favor of the Democrats.
Federalism seems fitted to defeat everywhere.

II wo-ild bo difTicalt'lo ssy whether the Whig
papers of the United State, or those of England
are most clamorous for a change of our Constitution.
1 he London Times has recently made a most fu
nous assault oo Ihkt part of it w hich gives the
Tresideiit, as ihe immediate Representative of the
people, the power to veto a bill. Mr. Clay and
..the Whig irt this country have done the same.
Wiih1 these olijector it avails nothing that Ihe
wise Irs mors ol our Government thought it neces
ary to placn this important check in the Constitu
lion t it avail nothing that it ha worked well in
our political system l'r mora than half a century ;
all is less than nothing because Mr. Tyler has
intarpoaed thi conservative poer to crush another
monster of corruption another DidJIe Rank for
ewindling tho people. The " monoy chiogors"
and Bunk brokers have been foiled by the Veto
power, therefore they cry down with it; Clay
ays down with' it the Awrtcan Whigs re-

The Democratic Victories. .
Democracy has been everywhere triumpliant in
tho late elections, and its victorious banner now
wave throughout the land, more universally, than
too coon-nkiii flag of 1840 floated over tho tri
umphal parade of Whiggery in thai memorable
year of pur humiliation a a people. In view of
thi alate of things, ibe question must present itself
to every reasoning mind what ha operated to
edi ct the extraordinary revolutu n in public opinion
that ha so completely overwhelmed Ihe Whig
party within one jear ailor.the day of their proud
eat exaltation 1 Are the people so loose in their
attachment to principle as to be swsyed by trifling
causes, or by the breath of excitement and p&ssiuu
from one extreme to another within the short spare
of a twelve month T' No, every body know that
there ia no excitement now that there has been
no attempt lo gel up any i the Democratic party
have made no inflammatory appeals to the passiona
of Ihe people; but this great revolution ha been
accomplished by the powerful influence of sober
reason and calm reflection, working silently but
surely on the intelligence of the people ; and so far
from proving Ibe contrary, its very suddeiiues is
the atrongeet evidence of popular adherence lo
cardinal principle. - It goes to ai.ow that though
under the effect, of excitement and trickery Ihe
people may be temporarily deluded aW led astray,
returning reason and it fleet ion will invariably
bring them back lo the right fold again. In Ihe
corneal of 1840 the W'hitfS raited an excitement
to divert attention from their anti republican prin
ciplcs; they deceived the people by misrepresent
tattoos and homed promise; they raised a clam.
orous cry for " change," and finally succeeded in
getting into power; its soon a they look the
reins of Government, they began to throw off the
mask, and show, their real cuuracter una true
principles by a aerie of odious act and roea
sure ; then the eyes of the people were opened ;
lhy saw I hat ihey bad bean impnaed upon by
designing men snd deceived into an abandonment
of prineipb. and lhy have everywhere hastened
lo atone fur their error by returning to the support
of the true faith which alone can preserve, as ihey
now see, their rights and liberties. This is the
kauser of 'th& DeiviewtreVirtOTreV wlchhavo
wept every thing before lliem, and from present
signs, the indignation of a betrayed people will
hardly leave to Federalism a skulking place from
Maine to Jjootsinna
Another Candidate for the Pretideney in the
ftld- perhapt. The Raleigh R. ginter haa favored
the public with a speech delivered in the MisxiwupiH
Legislature in February laat, by a Senator in lhat
body, Mr. Ives, on the subject of iho correspon
dence between Governors Morehead and McNutt,
heretofore ulludrd t, in which the orator rather
boast of a personal acquaintance with Governor
Morehead, and make Hi Excellency out quite an
extraordinary man. Mr. Ives says: "sucii a
man as Governor Morearad is not born once in a
century !n Nor tteiet neither, friend Ives." Yes
sir, cooiioue Mr. I., with all hi talent and
learning he would ornament Ihe Presidential chair,
nor ia it unlikely that he may one day be called
upon yet, to preside over the destinies or this great
Republic, ihoi!d tie Whig party again get the
aecendanty." ' t
, Should the Whig party ever again get ihe
ascendancy, and should Governor Morehead be
made President, he will prove himself a very
ungrateful man if he doe not reward friend ve
with one ol the beat and lattest office in his gift
for being tbersf to discover before hand hi fitness
for the Presidency, and hi great talent, and
learning. .... We vonture to suspect, however, that
(li Excclie-icy boina, lho who are c
quainted with him know, mndet unaesuming ninn,
would very willingly compromise the matter, and
on condition of beii.g elected Governor, relit qoish
all right, tide and claim whatsoever that he mav
have in prospective, on the Presidentml Chair"
