Wouldst thou be a friend of mine?
Thoti must be quick ami bold
When the right is to be done,
And the truth is to be told.
Wearing no friend-like smile
When thine heart is hot within,
Making no truce with fraud or guile,
No compromise with sin.
Open of eye and speech,
Open of heart anil h ind,
Holding thine own but as in trust,
For thy great brother baud.
Patient and stout to bear,
Vet bearing not for ever;
Gentle to rule, slow to bind.
Like lightning to deliver!
True to thy fatherland,
True to thine own true love;
True ti thine altar and thy creed,
And thy good God above
Hut with no bigot scorn
For faith sincere as thine,
Though less of form attend the prayer,
Or more of pomp and shine;
Remembering Him who ?pake
The word that cannot lie,
Where two or three in my name meet
There in the midst am I !"
I bar thee not from faults
God wot, it were in vain:
Since that primeval slain:
The wisest have been fools
The surest stumbled sore.
Strive thou to stand or fall'n arise

This do, and thou shalt knit
Closely my heart to thine;
Next the dear love of God above,
Such friend on earth be mine!

As the time has again arrived, when it is
necessary that every Democrat should labor
to secure the triumph of those principles,
which he believes will best promote the
general welfare of our Republic; as judging
fiom the past, and the signs of the present,
there is reason to believe, that our political
opponents will endeavor to conceal under
specious appeals to the prejudices and pas

which the leaders of their party have in

best counteracted, by a bold and honest
declaration of our sentiments. Therefore

principles which characterized the admin

Van Buren, and we believe a strict con

prosperity of the American people
Resolved, That we aie now, as we have
ever been, opposed to Henry Clay's 50

IVilliam G. Brownlow1 s Slander of Gen
Jackson while in Raleigh, and Gen.
We publish below a letter which we re

in answ er to one addressed to him by us on
the 15th ultimo, from which the reader
will learn that the notorious William G.

a malicious slander aeainst the venerable
and distinguished patriot of the Hermitage.
We kept no copy of our letter to Gen. Jack
sen, hut the statement it contained, will be
found in his answer below. It was in a
private circle that we heard Brownlow
where were present the Hon. R. M. Pear
son, Col. Pearson, and Gen'l Nicholas
Gov. Jones replied that they h d no liht

had according to the rules and usage of the
Church. 'That Gen'l. Jackson answered,
he did not care what the rules of the Church
were she ought to b and should be turn
ed out, the welfare of the Church required
it. Gov. Jones replied that she should
not be turned out. "
Mr. Brownlovv, heard this, as he said,
from Gov. Jones himself, and requested
him to let him Brownlow have the let

connected with the Church.

pose a vile slanderer I make the eifoit,
and hasten to feply.
You are pleased to state in your letter
that, A man name 1 Brownlovv. the edi

'the day after you I become connected
with that denomination. Fiomthefiisl
of these letters, he said, that you 1 rr
'presenled to Gov. J. as Elder, that theie
was a certain widow woman in the
Church who ihould he immediately tur'n

such a proceeding could not. according' to
"ihe discipline and rules of the church" be
exectned so summaiily, you 1 lejoined,
that the dictates of common sense r quir
ked it, and that she should be turned out.
'whatever might he the rulesof theChurch."
To all this I reply, that there is not one
word of truth in the whole statement of
Brownlovv. It is a bare faced fabticated
slander; so far from its being true, when I
joined the presbyterian Church, Gov. Jones
was not an Elder of it, nor has he ever
been since. Second: I never wrote Gov.
Jones a letter in my life, on religious or
3tiy other subjects; uor never had or held
with him a conversation on any religious
subject. Third: Since I have joined the
Presbyterian Church, there never has been
any complaint against any of its members,
that has come to my knowledge; and last
ly, there never has been a widow vveman a
member of our Church, before or since 1
j become a member, as lar as 1 have ever

ELECTORS FOR PRESIDENT AND
At a late meeting of the Democratic Ex
ecutive State Central commmee, neiu m
this City, it was resolved to suggest to the
people the importance of proceeding as soon
as possible to the appointment of Electors
for President and Vice President; and also
that they appoint, by the same Conventions
that shall select the principal Elector, at
least one gentleman in each District who
shall act as Assistant Elector. It would be
better, perhaps, to appoint two Assistant
Electors in each District: but our friends
must of course be governed by circumstan
ces. The importance and Dronriety of

Gov. Jones must answer in the negative;
and this will close all doors to

Some considerable difficulty has arisen in

We notice one circumstance of a singulat
nature. Mr. Hobard, from the Maine
Conference, (wi'h the proviso that he only
did it officially) presented a petition
against the annexation of Ttxa&; asking
the Conference to speak out on the subject
it being, in the opinion of the memorialist
calculated to perpetuate slavery. Mr.
Cartwright moved that the memorial be
referred to Congress at Washington as the
legitimate committee for such a document,
Mr. Sand ford hioved that the memorialists
have leave to withdraw Iheir petition
which was Carried.
