In his address at Irfiitisville, Feb. 1 1th, he said,
" It was his ardent wish to dissipate all party acri
monies, and to bring the Government back to the
6:ln.(j,j,y of 0Hr hlUet W1PI1 ,ie objects aimed at

In his Speech at Cincinnati, Feb, IC, he speaks
very plainly about who made him President, ai.d
upon what Was his reliance, thus : " I have been
called b) the highest office in the world, by the un
bought, unsolicited suffrages of the people the
masses of tho people. I look Upon these disinter
ested suffrages as a higher honor than can be ccn-
lerred hy any station here, or in burnpe. I am
thankful to Divine ProviJeiice for warJing the bul
I ts from .. y p-.-rsou : anil I must look to the same Di'
vine Providence Co guide and assist me in perform
ing these new duties."
Once more, and we have done. Governor Ciit
tenden, in his Message tn the Kentucky Legisla
ture, of January 1st, has this passage: "General
Taylor comes into his high office, w:th the avowed
purios-' of endeavoring to carry out the principles
and policy of Washington, and this should com
mend him to the affections of the American people.
Il will lie his aim tu snften,iflie can no extinguish,
the atjterities of party strift tog'uc t the Gaiern-
nient its eonnlitutional dirisiuns of powers a they
were desigmd to hs exercised by its framers, and to
make the Congress nf the United Slates the true ex
ponent of llie will if tlieir constituents."
Now don't he differ widely from Mr. Polk ? An l
don't we love hiin for it ? What ! administer the
Government as an American Patriot should ?
Why such a thing has not U:en known in the coun
try for twenty odd years ! 1 et OLD ACK is
about to become (he President of the .tmrriivm
People, and he has courage enough for any thing.
Aloiit, he will be President, and he told his friend.
at Baton Rouge, that the trusts reposed in hiin he
would endeavor to fulfil, " it'tluaU regard to fear.
favor, or affection fur any vne." Glorious Old Man!
the country may safely trust you I Long-tried,
and always faithful !

GENERAL CASS.
We see it stated th;.t General Cass had readied
Uniontown, Pa. ou the iiflth ult. on his way to th
Capital. Our readers have heard, 'probably, that
he returns to the United States Senate, under in
structions to vote for the Wihnot Proviso. And,
of course, the Locofoco papers at the South have
no more to say about him. They do not even an
nounce his movements. Now, if he were I'resi
dent, and were to do this thing, were he even to
recommeud it in his message, it would all be right
they would praise and justify him all the same,
as they did Polk, when he signed it. But a few
short months ago, our Locofoco Contemporaries in
North Carolina were endeavoring to humbug tlitf
South, by asserting that Lewis Cass of Michigan,
was a Swirtirn man, in principle, and dcneral
7'iyor, of Louisiana, a AortVrn man. Ah! but
" (hat cock would'nt fight !" The people cmWrtt
be fooled on that subject. They repudiated and
rejected Van, because he wis a Wihnot Trovi
man, an Abolitionist anil behold! look ! lo ! in
two or three more months he returns to Washing
ton City, under instructions (o ,i'e for this very .
Wihnot proviso! And the. Locofoco presses are
now as muto as fishes ! Where are their denunci

SONS OF TEMPERANCE.
The friends of the Temperance cause will h
pleased to learu that important movements are now
going on in the advancement of this excellent Order,
extending its usefulness to many parts of the Stale
where, hitherto, it has been unknown.. Within a
few weeks, Divisions have been opened at the Uni
versity of the 9ute, Smi'.hfield, Elizalietli City,
Willianiston, and Hamilton, besides three others,
the names of which we have not heard.
The Grand Division of the State have now in the
field an aide and efficient agent, the Rev. Mr.
Pearce, under whose labors, it is confidently Imp
ed, the spread of the Order may be rapid anl
w idely diffused. Every candid man, who will re
lied dispassionately upon this subject, must con
e'ude, that the surest means of promoting Temper
ance in any community, is a union of its friends,
that their example, as well as influence, may have
the greater efl'ect. Let a Division, therefore, bt
opened in every town and villsge of the State, anil
let all the friends nf Temperance, rally to its aid, if
they wish to sec a reformation in the land, and
our word for it, the condition of that coreinunity, in
this respect, would be much improved, until fathers
and sons' ' would belong to the order together, and
RiJiF(,0,mtenaiiccintt.-inperance,iutil,inthat place,

The Order now numbers 2G Divisions in llie
State, with the prospect of many more being set lo
work during the year.

1m been removed to Fayettctilte. We noceived
last week, the first No. which has been Issued I'rtim
that place, and arc really gratified at its neat and
handsome appearance. The execution of the typo.
grahical department, as well as its selected and
original matter, reflects great sredit upon out old
friend, Mr. Potter: and we doubt not i's re-appearance
will be hailed with much satisfaction by all
its readers. We hive reason to btdieve that the
CoVMi'siraToR is about to take a high stand as a
Temperance paper. It has always been useful to
the cause, and was much missed during ils brief
suspension, which taught Its subscribers Its value
and rcilly being the cheapest paper in llie State
only One Dollar per annum wo see not w hy it
should not have a large patronage. We command
it t the support of the friends of Temperance every
