that I find myseif constrained to notice tl.ealla
8ioris, ioyour paiwruf yesterday, to my vote iv
rema ks io the Senate of the United States on

Were a Juror in the box, sworn to give a truo

Van Buien & his cuuairy, t should feel my
self, constrained to give that verdict sgaiost
him. 4 . j . : r -: - -- :
Onlhis you remark thai it was a party eppo
si lien that prompted this proceeding sgainsi Mr
Van Boreo.aud tio thai cause may we ascrita
the ferosity of the warfare waged 'against him,
to say tbe least, it was ao unwise ar.d impolilio
warfare, and we know against the judgment of
one of its disttDgu!h-d supporters, to whom our
correspondent alludes. He predicted the result
with unerring sagacity be foresaw that it would
be an element ot (tr. VB's luccess and yet
tbe exigencies of party grayed him in debate
againwi hts deliberate jodgment.
" Wilhoui full her explanation,! it might teem,
that 1 had .on this expressed,
not entertain arid pursued a
opini.'iis, 1 Old
i course which
was contrary to my own convicti-n ol what was
rigliT. Now the; truth is.jlhal the nominal ion
of Mr Van Buren, as Mioisler to England, wa
seized upon as a suitable occasico for making .ip
an isspv between tbe two parties as to his vieriti
a a member of Gen Jacks6n'$ fidminklruliwi.
His whohconducf, and especially his tnst'iic
tions to Mr McLaoe, io relation to ihe West
India trade, came up for discussion, and for ccri
demnaiion or approval, and the vote was regard
ed as a test question between tbe parties. In
my 'deliberate jadgment it was! unwisa d
impolitic in the oppoHitioc:to make up suth aa
issue, on the question tbeo before the Senates I
believed, as it turned ont. thajt ihe rejection f
the nominal ion by the Senate, would make Mr
Van Buren President. I Mj political frier d
ihoooht otherwise ; ibejssoe was made op be
twee'o the parties, and Mr Van Buren was put
noon his trial. Compelled to take ground on
one side or the other of the issue tfius presented,
I acted in cooforraisy, wilh my own cooviction,
" in giving my verdict against I him. 1 ha
grounds on winch I hen aded. are fully ex
plained io the speech del yered by roe on that
occa5!o. This explaoatica i duev to myself,
and to the truth of the case. In the controver
sy now going oo between tbe friends of Mr Clay
and bf Mr ao Bureo, take no part, I aa oth
erwise, and I trust beUetemp'ojfd.
