That Freedom breathes forth from her higli
It sweeps the green earth it ascends the calm
On .the mild chainless breezes triumphantly

And curst.be tbe dastard who shrinks back tn
Give the name of the villain to Time's ceaseless
Who led the base van cf corrupt legislation:
May ueauiy ne er bless him, nor virtue s pure
For canker and stain on the brow of our nation
The Traitor, the Knave,

The Apostate to all that survives the rim grave!
Then Democrats rally the battle is near
And curst be the dastard who shrinks back in
Oh! ffaxe on those walls where our fathers re
When Hope droop'd her wings through the

Nail our Flag to the mast.
Let our not of defiance ring Jnud on the blast!

MR. VAN. BUR EN'S REPLY TO
THE PENNSYLVANIA STATE
This letter is characteristic of Mr
Van Bufen. He would despise the presi
oency if he were sung inlo it. He would
do no despicable thing lo obtain any honor
or advantage to himself personally; and we
are sure he would never accept the chief
magistracy at the hands of his party, how
ever inclined to give his services in sup
port of its principles, if thev sought the
power of tendering it to him throug
weans destructive oi all the virtues on
which the government is founded, and of
dignity in the station itself.
Mndenwald, January 29, 1844.
Centlemen: I have had the honor to re
ceive your obliging letler, communicating
the proceedings of a State democratic mass
meeting, held at riarnsburg on the 17th
instant, at which my name was, with entire
unanimity presented to the democratic
party pf Pennsylvania, as their-candidate
'or the presidency.
I cannot refrain from saying that 1 have
received your communication with feeling
ii" uiumary cnaracier. An expression
ff opinion so imposing as. that which you
ive Deen deputed to convey to me, com
lng from any portion of my political asso
ciates, could not fail, o excite my profound
gratitude. There are cireumstances. how
ler, attending this, which seem to de
p"ve a more particular notice at my
iviy relations with the democracy of
your great State has been in some respects
peculiar. They sustained me by their
confidence and support, at a most interest
ing crisis in my political career. I have
been honored and cheered by their good
will, when it was not in their power to
i . . rH . .... '
renaer iteiiecttve, and their support was at
onetime withheld from me, and conferred
upon another, when I received that of their
political brethren of the Union. Why
should I not embrice an occasion so oppor
tune, ana posiniy ihe last that may occur,
to assure them that neither then, nor at any
other time during the whole course of my
political lilf, have 1 ever, lor a moment,
doubted their disposition to do me ample
justice? Although they dissented from my
iiuuuuiiiion, i leu assurci mat they were
actuated by motives which were entitled to
my entire respect. 1 have, therefore, nev
er ceased to cherish, in common with the
friends of our cause throughout the Union.
towards the unconquerable and ( s the ful
lest experience has proved) the unpurcha
sable democracy of Pennsylvania, senti
ments of Mncere respect for their adher
eucu to democratic principles under cir
Constances the most adverse, and admira
"ion oi the unfaltering spirit with which
they have from lime to time struggled wit
duuirstic distensions. I cannot therefore.
gentlemen, too highly appreciate an expres
sion of confidence and lavor, proceeding
from so iepectable a portion of them, on
this, the lat occasion on which my name
can ever be presented to the country for
any public Nation.
let these are not the only considerations
which nive interest lo the nroeeedinirs
Ahich you have transmitted to me. It is
known to all, and by no one more cheer
fully admitted than by myself, that a large
majority ol our political friends in Penn
sylvania preierred that the honor which
those whom yuu represent have now so
cordially awarded to me, should be bes
towed upon a justly distinguished citizen
ol their own Slate one admirably quali-
ueii lor ine succcsmui aiscnarge oi any
public duty, and possessing likewise, in an
eminent degree, the confidence and good
will of the demociacy of the Uuion. It
ctriainly becomes others better than my
self to comment on the propriety of his
withdrawal from the canvass, when it had
oeen ascertained that the wishes of his
more immediate fiiends were not (for rea
sons, however, not detracting from the
merits ol their favorite) in accordance with
those of the great body of their political
brethren in other States. I should not,
however, do justice to the occasion, nor to
my own feelings were I to pass over in si
lence the fact, th-it but for this surrenderor
his pietensions to promote the general har
mony, the proceedings for which 1 am of
fering my grateful acknowledgements
could not now have taken place. Nor
will it, 1 hope, be thought amiss in any
quarter, it 1 avail my sell of the occasion to
show that this commendable desire to pto
mote unanimity among common friends
had previously, though to a leds important
extent, been acted upon hv mystJI. it is
well known that, amid prevailing prefer
ence oi the democracy of Peons) lvanra for
her distinguished son, theie was a portion
of them, of whose confidence any publ;c
man might well be proud, who avowed a
preference, which they had early imbibed,
and zealously cherihed, for myself. It is
not, however, so well known that, without
attempting to interfere wish their ftee ex
ercise of opinion, 1 caused them to be in
f r ned that, as far as my individual feel
ings were concerned, it would be entirely
satisfactory to have them unite with the
test of our political friends in the State, in
giving its vote in convention to him who
was the choice of the majority. That this
suggestion had not been adopted, was 1 feci
a-smed, not because those to whom it was
addressed were less friendly to the favorite
of ihe Slate, or less sensible of his claims
upon the respect and confidence of his coun.
tiymen; but altogether owing to considera
tions growing out of the contest of IS4u,
which they deemed imperative. I cannot,
1 am confident, add an) thing to the master
ly and eloquent description which you have
iriven of that national stiuggle. Neither
am 1 unmindful ol the bias which the rela
tion in which I stood towards it, is calcula
ted lo exercise upon my opinion ol its char
acter. Vet I canno1, I think, deceive my
self in believing that the justice ol the cen
sure which you have pronounred upon
those extraoidinory scents, will now, at
least, be recognised by a vast majority of
the American people.
However 'difficult it may then have been
to define with requisite certainty the po
litical objects for which our opponents wa
ged the contest of 1S40, there can assured
ly be no room for 'misapprehension upon
that suhject. The extra session, following
immediately upon its heels, unmasked
those objects too clearly to admit of their
being agai n obscured or misrepresented
An opportunity and it is earnestly to be
hoped that birth parlies will concur in en
deavoring to K make it a fair one will,
therefore, now be presented for the people
of the United States to make a choice be
tween two opposing systems for the admin
istration of their government, the influence
of one which will, in all probability, affect
the interests of the country, for good or
evil, for a series of years to come.
Nor is this the only, nor even the most
important aspect in which the renewal of
the contest of which you have spoken with
so much emphasis, and in so patriotic a spir
it, may well be regarded.
Singular as it may seem to those who
are not in a situation to judge correctly ol
the circumstances, it is nevertheless true,
that a condemnation by the people of the
United States, of many of the means to
which our opponents had recourse in that
canvass, is not less important to the perm
anent welfare of our country and its politi
cal institutions, than the overthrow of the
principles they labored lo establish. While
the effects of the success of the latter were
in a measure limited and temporary, the
employment of the former struck at the
very foundation upon which our political
edifice was based.
It has hitherto been our pride to live un
der political institutions which are founded
upon reason and viitue, in the establish
menioi wnicn neither lorce nor iraud wa
employed; and we have cherished the be
lief, that it is only by an inflexible obser
vance of the exalted principles which pre
vailed at the period of its formation, that
our government can be upheld. Without
more particularly noticing the humiliating
details to which you allude in your com
munication, can it be pretended tht there
could beany expectation of succes for such
ettoits, unless founded upon the assump
Hon that the popular voice was not under
the guidance of reason and virtue," or up
on the supposition that the moral principles
ol the people to whom those degrading ap
peals were made, might be corrupted by
a resort to such practices? The belief that
the use of such means contributed to the
result of 1840, must have lowered the char
actor of our people in the estimation of
mankind; and if so, how much would their
respect for us be diminished, should the
coming canvass be so conducted as to es
tablish the impression that the American
people are liable to be always thus imposed
upon? Liability to occasional error is an
infirmity from which no individual is ex
empt. What right have we, then, to ex
pect that communities should be infallible?
But there is a wide difference between an
occasional aberration, and a confirmed de
fect of character, (.'an we expect the peo
ple of this country to maintain the elevated
standing in the eyes of the world which
they have hitherto enjoyed, if, after the
lapse of years, and the fullest opportunity
for reflection, they suffer themselves to he
a second lime operated upon by appliances
from the use of which every friend to free
government must turn with mortification
You do not therefore, gentlemen, in my
judgment, over-estimate ihe importance
which the proceedings of 1S40 are destin
ed to give to those of 184 4. Considera
tions will be brought into view by that
connexion, of greater magnitude than any
which have ever been involved in our polit
ical conflicts, and compared with which all
personal and party interests dwindle into

LOSS OF THE SHIP ALBION.
Come all ye jolly sailors bold,
And listen unto me,
A dreadful story I will tell.
That happened all at sea.
Landsmen, pray pity mc,
While rolling on the raging sea.
The Loss of the Albion ship, my boys,
Upon the Irish coas',
And most of the passengers and crew,
Wrere completely lost.
'Twas on the first of April,
From New York we set sail,
Kind Neptune did protect us.
With a sweet and pleasant gale.
Until about the twentieth,
A storm there did arise,
The raging billows loud did roar,
And dismal were the skies.
'Twas on Sunday afternoon,
The land we did espy,
At two o'clock we made Cape Clair,
And the sea ran mountains high.
To the Southward winds began to blow,
And hravy squallscame on,
Which made our passengers to weep,
And sailors for to mourn.
All prudent sail we carried,
To keep us clear from land,
Expecting every moment,
Thai our vessel she would strand.
Our forelopsail was split, my boys,
Our foreyard took away.
Our mainmast by the deck was broke,
And mizen swept away.
Our captain was wash'd overboard
Into the botindlrs derp.
Which caused all that were on board
To lamentate and weep.
Unto the pumps we lash'd onrelves,
Most dreadful for to know.
And many a gallant soul, my boys,
Then over board did go;
We had a lady fair on board,
Miss Powel washer name.
Whose namedesprves to be engraved,
Upon the list of fame.
She wNhed to take her turn at pump,
Her precious life to save.
No sotner was her wish denied,
She met a watery grave.
All night in this condition,
We were tos-ing to a'id fro,
Three o'clock in tup morning.
We we.e in the midst of woe.
Full twenty-seven men on deck,
With each a broken heart,
The Albion struck against a rock,
And midships she did part.
Our passengers were twenty-nine,
When from New Yoik she came,
With twenty-five bold sailor lads,
As ever crossed the main.
Full fiftv-four we had on board,
. When first we did set sail,
And only nine escaped the wreck,
To icll the dreadful tale.
So now that noble vessel.
The Albion, she is lost,
Through the tempestuous ocean,
She so often times had crossed.
Our noble captain he is lost,
A man, a sailor hold,
And many a gallant life is lost.
And many a heart made cold.
