THE POPULAR APPRECIATION OF
r ; HIS CIIAKACTElt.
!ln an eloquent sketch of the life of the
Father of his Country, contained in a vo
lume entitled 44 Washington and the Gen
erals of the Revolution," may he found
the following remark, which wilL strike
the reader as one full of profund interest :
"It is a truth, illustrated in daily expe
dience, and yet rarely noticed or acted up
on, that in all that concerns the apprecia
tion of personal character or ability, the
instinctive impressions of a community
are quicker in their action, more profound
ly apnrpeiant, and more reliable, than the
4-inlellcctuaI perceptions of the ablest men
in the community. Upon all those sub
jects that are of moral apprehension, so
ciety Seems to possess an intelligence of
f lis own iniinueiy sensitive in itsueucacy.
and almost conclusive in the certainty of
its determinations; indirect and uncon
scious in its operation, yet unshunnable in
"sagacity, and as strong and confident as
nature' herself. The highest and the fin
est qualities of human judgment seem to
be in commission Among the nation, or the
race. It is by such a process that, when
ever a true hero appears among mankind,
the recognition of his character, by the
general sense of humanity, is instant and
certain :' the. belief of the chief priests and
Tulers of I mind follows later, or comes not
at all. ' The perceptions of: a public are
as subtle-sighted as its passions are blind.
It sees, and feels, and knows the excel
fence, which it can neither understand,
nor explain, nor vindicate."
' This principle of the instinctive faculty
of a people to detect greatness even in
the germ, the writer applies with, force to
the case of Washington, -to his immedi
ate acceptance by the nation-builders of
70, and tlie uninterrupted command over
their entire confidence!, which he enjoyed
to the last j
v"!"From the first moment of his appear
ance as Vcllief," says the writer, the re
cognition of him, from one end of the
country to the other, as the man the lea
der, the counsellor, the infallible, in sug
gestion and lin conduct was immediate
and universal. From that moment to the
close jpf the scene the national confidence
in bis! capacity was as spontaneous, as en
thusiastic, as imtnovablens it was in his
integrity. Particular persons, alFected by
. the untoward course of events, sometimes
qucstjoned his sufficiency ; but the nation
never questioned it, nor would allow it to
be questioned." 1
Td our. own feelings there is something
repulsive, as if bordering at once on adu
lation and Irreverence, in instituting a
complimentary comparison between the
Father of his Country and any living man
between him who, in the world of de
parted spirits, stands on that glorious pin
nacle of immortal fame, above the Cae
sars and ftfapoleons of the earth, apd the
best and purest creature that can walk its
surface, aspiring to similar excellence and
equal acceptation hereafter. We dp not,
therefore, mean to attempt any parallel
between the character of Zachary Taylor
and that of George Washington. , But we
may! declare, and our readers wijl feel,
J that he history of the former, during the
last two. years, and his present position as
the foremost man of this Republic;, bring

This is certainly the strongest reason yet
given ; and to those accustomed to the
government of Baltimore leaders it is suf
ficient ; but to South Carolinians, who
have ever opposed conventions and cau
cusses as corrupt systems of unwarranted
dictation, it should have no weight, but
should rather lead to an exercise of the
strictest vigilance. Is General Cass a tho
rough Democrat ? Is he such a Democrat
as to give importance at this time to party
questions? Some time ago he was an
open Federalist, and seems to have taken
pride in making his opinions known thro'
a black cockade. In 1844 he was opposed
to the -annexation of Texas, the question
which carried the Democratic party into
power, or rather had more influence in
bringing about that result than any other;
but in the same year I acknowledge he is
to be found in its favor. He has said that
i our manufactures ought to be protected
by reasonable duties, making him in fa
vor of a Tariff for protection ; and he has
voted, and would now vote, in favor of a
system of internal improvement by the gen
eral government. Mr. Polk, 'tis true, re
ceived the well merited applause of the7
party for interposing his veto in the last
instance, but Mr. Cass received from the
same party, what he values more highly,
and what is certainly more durable, the
nomination, when Mr. Cass's vote is in di
rect opposition to Mr. Polk's veto. Now,
therefore, Mr. Cass is put up as the great
embodiment of Democratic principles; and
it is to be presumed that these principles

that Congress has no right to legislate on
