The last Standard does not even allude to it, al-
i thouch Mr. Wiltiiol's Speech was delivered the
lly. woro it not for the tenacity with which lie
clings to the old policy of doing nothing, because,
bs he says, we aro "compelled to take the earn
ings of one section of the Stato to build up, fo
tcr, and improve another section."
The truth is, we are "compelled" to do no such
thing. The true policy of the State is to improve
all and every parr, as far as practicable but be- for the President of the United States ! That he
cause we cannot improve all at once, the Logisl.i-' was a disgrace to his office has long been appa
l"th of February, about a fortnight ago, and the
Rditor could nit fail to see it. We have no doubt
this is a for; subject to our Iocofoco friends.
Polk feoms to have been willing enough to betray
them, and betray the South, to effect his own pur
in order to give prompt and efficient aid to the con
struction of the Central Railroad, and promote
other measures of internal improvement in which
this portion of the Stato is peculiarly interested.
The meeting was organised by calling Akchi-!
balii Wtt.sox, Esq., to the Chair, and appointing
James G. Soott .Secretary.
The object of the meeting having been satisfac
torily explained, Joun A. (iiLUKit, responding to
pr"s or, ho was trying to deceive and humbug j the call of the meeting, addressed them at somo
Wllinot..
What a dignified attitude, either way, j length. With a fidelity that was painfully felt he
j sketched the past history :md present condition of
j the State ,the supineness which has long prostra-

therd no Democracy about that ? This writer ! deemed stronger. They found Talk to. be weak,
prosperity sue now presents to her sUtor States,
who entered the Confederacy with no advantages,
natural or .acquired, superior to her the course
f rales and cants about Democracy from one end
cf the chapter to the other, Why here it is, and
yet he objects ! And so would he object to every
thing that could be devised, in which the State,
whose duty it is to card for her citizens, is to be
. engaged.
What do we want with a Slate Government
which is only felt in the burdens it imposes, and
never in the benefits it imparts ? a (iovernmcnt
which oppresses all the time, and never aids?
which, having a giant's strength to assist the eo
ple, permits them to struggle on, through natural
impediments and disabilities j embarrassments of
all kinds, arising from their interior location and
distance from the marts of trade j the depreciation
of their lands owing to these causes ; ami the sure
coming of indebtedness and poverty, never helping
to improve their condition at all ? And why ? i
Forsooth, according to this dark-minded writer, be- j
cause she cannot relieve all seclimis, anil eirry bo-
ill, at ene and the same time I Well, by the beard
of tho Grand Turk I wo had butler rotnm,nt once,
: to the primal days when there was ho obligation
between the sovereign and the people, but support
on the one band arid oppression on the churl
The sovereign was then said to protect and ilejiml
the people ; but he took good care te make use of
their strong hands and hard-won revenue for the
purpose : Governments bad, indeed, a iime but
no beneficent consequences.
But, according to this writer once more, the ex
tent of the Resistance the people aro to obtain
from the State and this he contends ie Democratic-
is permission to better their own condition
to make Internal Improvements for themselves
the State, meantime, relaxing none of her imposi
tions, removing none of her burdens, and not lay
ing on the weight of her little finger to help.
I'mph ! Democratic, indeed I
Well, now, this Democratic policy, if it be such,
we have tried all the time and where Are wc ?
wliat haw we achieved Just nothing, and worse
than nothing. We are at tlie beginning, where
we must always remain, according to this Demo
cratic doctrine, never to advance one inch) so far
as the State is concerned. The peojile are to con
tribute all the time to the advancement, and pros
perity of the Slate, but the State is not to help the
jtrqile! Where any thing is to be done for their
improvement, the State graciously permits it, but
Ihe jKOjile must do it for themselves, individu
ally. -
If this he Democracy, We ato more opposed to it
than ever. .
Still, the cry of "Anti-State Debt," is "taxes!
taxes !" We are getting used to that. The peo
ple have an imprescriptible right to grumble at
their taxes we might almost say it is their birth
right. They have always done it from time im
memorial ; they always do it, whether the tax be
light or heavy and yet Ihey pay it cheerfully e
noogh notwithstanding. We must expect to be
incompetent, a double-dealer, and unpopular. But j they have pursued, brightening in glory as it ad'

i very nnponaiii item, in tlie f oreign ?cws, is
that which relates to the uflairs of France. The
accounts by previous arrivals induced us to think
that we should bo agreeably disappointed, and the
" Repubiic" would outlive the month of March, a
hont .which time' we' guessed, some time ugn, it
would blow up. Every thing was said to be quiet
and steady in Paris, it was reasonable to suppose
tiiat our prognostics were likely to fail of fulfill
ment. Rut the recent intelligence revives all our
fears, and goes far to realize our expectations.
We Lope, indeed, tha:. things may remain quiet for
a long time, fur we have no ambition to be " good

of that place, who determined to ha:; a single
sight at the Gennral. In a few remarks which
he made to them, he uttered the fulhiarilig senti
ment : he said lh?y were the men who developed
the wealth of the country, and added, that good
laws were all that we wanted, for the AmericaaJ
people knew how to take care of themselves,
Gen. Taylor, we are happy to state, Is iu the
enjoyment of his accustcmed good hcatth, though
he suffers some inconvenience from the lameness of
his right arm, which was unfortunately injured by
an accident which happened to him on his journey.
His suite consists or the following individuals :
Maj. R. S. Garnett, U. S Army; Col. J. T.
Van Allen, of New Y'oik ; Judge Winchester, of
Louisiana ; J. P. Benjamin, Esq. ef New Orleans ;
Col, Balie Peyton and daughter, of New Orleans ;
A. C. Bullitt, Esq. of New Orleans ; Dr. 5! cCor
mick, U. S. Army, and lady ; Col. James Taylor,
of Newport, and daughter; Howard Christy, Esq.,
of Kentucky, and lady ; Miss Johnson and Miss
Wickliffo, of Kentucky.
Among the gentlemen who came from Balti
more to meet Gen. Taylor, were his brother, Col.
J. P. Taylor, and Slaj. Dusenbury, U. S. A.
As the cars from Baltimore were a little delay
ed, Gen. Taylor, with his party, came into Wash
ington after nightfall, but the stars shono brightly,
and tho Railroad track wai occasionally illumina
ted by bonfires on tlie route. By bonfires, also,
aud the roaring nf cannon and hi'shts of brilliant
rockets, was the General heralded into the City,
and ihe mass of human beings which blocked dp
tne Kaiiroau uepot, rcnnsyivania avenue, on his
'arrival was greater than we bavo witnessed on snv
former occasion. The immense multitude accom
panied the General s cortege to his lodgings at
Willard's Hotel, where, after a short time, he
stepped out on the balcony a ad returned thanks to
tlie people for their enthusiastic welcome, which
were received by deafening huzzas from the im
mense crowd.
In sortie twelve months I may perhaps return.
And with a Wealthy husband by my side
And lots of gold to take up our sojourn.
In this old city, nlieays to abide :
I'll read a lesson to the girls I know,
Whenever they complain they want a Jertti.
