CARUTHERS. from ih AUwoy Evening; Journal. OVESTIOXS OUT OP A POLITICAL CATECHISM. ; Cl Qaestion. Pray, air, what politics do you profess? r Answer. Sir, I am a democrat. -Q. In what does your democracy ' consist? ' - A. To be "all things at times to all men." To advocate the establish ment and utility of a national bank in 18l6,and to repudiate it in 1828. To oppose a sab-Treasury in 1834, and to laud it to the skies in 1837. To ad vocate the democracy of August and September, 1837, ha then declared and expounded by the Albany and New York republican committees.snd to ad vocate what it was declared ana '. ex pounded to be by the republican com mittees in December, 18Sr, after the Locofocos ( which were till the tail-end of all parties, aa pronounced by the Globe and Argus,; were admitted Into our ranks. Q. What, then, ia yoor definition of s Lototor - " A. The present definition ia equit alcntte democrat. Before this was found out by Van Buren to be the case, . we called' them Agrarians, Fanny ' Wright-men, Infidels, Radicals. Flour barrel psrty, c bo t Mr. Ming and Mr. Slamm, and their associates, sat isfied Mr. Van Buren ther wer the Uxt denocrafif party, and, there - 1 f.re, the Conservatives were turm oat of the parlj. . O. hat do yon mean or conserva tives? n,rtT y.t .nrportJ- A Van Buren for Presi and thin, and afterwards would not obey his orders to support the aub Treasury system? Q..W hat do you mean bylhe sub Treasury system? A. I mesa a system that would con centrate the whole money power with the sword, in the hands of the execu tive, and ruin all the banks a power that would enable the Executive to ac cumulate patronage and power td an extentjhat would perpetuate him and us in office. O. I thnuirlit that the Constitution gave Congress the power of regulating the treasury f A. So it did according its ancient construction.but we have found a shorter way, that is, "to construe the Constitu tion as we understand it" And sure i'ir the party can only. understand it in such a minner as it shall anwer best theg.nd of the party. Ak Mr. Butler the former, I mean (he preent Attor- ney General of the Uniteil Statea till September whether thi i not the true definition; and Mr. Butler is cer tainly the best expounder or constitu tional law we have ever had in the country. Q. Is then the constitution to he so conitro-d as to subdue ofily the interest of the party. A. Certainly. Q. hxs not the country at large somtthing to say about this affair? A. The country at large has noth in to do with it. We, the demorac, are Ibe country in its proper and legit imate snse. Q. In what -dictionary do you find your definition? A. In nt dictionary. We want no such traah as Webster's, Walker's, or lohnson's dictionaries. They were all rank arittocrats, and that is enough for the true democrar r. Q. Do you hold'to the doctrine that the democracy of numbers, or, as II. Hleecker quaintly calls it, King nam-bt-rs, is the true test in a republican country as to what the People want and uught to have? A; It wss once the doctrine when our psrty was in the majority, but it has been since exploded. Q. Why so? A. Why because because it is rather now an inconvenient doctrine. y.. Please explain? A. Well, if the truth must out, we have lost already twenty States in the recent elections, antl we are confoun dedly afraid that we shall soon lose the remaining six. Wo now incline to the opinion that the "minority of num bers" should govern. Q. Dorou consider a President's orders and opinions to be always de finitive and conclusive upon the par ty? A. Certainly 1 ao long aa ha " proles see our democracy. ' Q. What do you consider the BiGle of your democracy? A. The Globe and Antus. Q. Do you believe all they say? A. Certainly. ' Q. But when they contradict them selves, how do you then manage? A. We take their last assertions to be the true democracy. We follw, in this, the Revised ' Statutes, fand 're member Mr. Butter was one of the re visors,,) "the last clause, or section, shall prevail." Q. Good day, sirj I may ask you, perhaps, at another time, a few more question. " ' ".' ', . , At T shaU "answer them with preat pleastire. - - - - Q. A propotilion for our Van Buren rete.- The-patriotie intentions of the party," to force " their opponents to the adoption of their on peculiar views on tne suuject ot hard money, having been defeated by Congress, we have a proposition to make to them which wethink cannot fail to meet their approbation, and accomplish their object, so far as they themselves are concerned. i ' The members of the party, one and all, having such a horror of banks, b.ank officers, and bank notes, we res pectfully propose that they forthwith le U, or ((ivraway, all the banE etacfc titer hold, resign all their offices in banka, and resolve themselves to re ceive no bank notes,but to sell alt their goods, receive all their fees, and pay all their debts, in hard money, only. As we take it for granted that it ia only because this plan has never sug gested itself to our opponents, that it bus not been adopted, we anticipate ita immediate adoption, by acclama tion. We look for the speedy relin quishment of his Stock by the wealthy Stockholder who regard the banka as vampyres, aucktngthe Mood of the dear people," the retirement in dis gust of the Director and officer, who have auch a horror of the corrupting influence of banks, the refusal to re ceive, a fee, and the resignation of his office, by the Bank Attorney, who, be lievjng all bank to be unconstitution al, cannot consent to sue for a judg ment against a delinquent debtor. And last, but not least, that all the faithful will at once and forever, refuse to sell goods, or do any manner of labor, for the "worthless bank rags," for wh they have such a thorough contempt.

Fay. Obu !!! DUNCAN'S SPEECH TO BE STEREOTYPED !!: We read in the Eveninz Post last evening that the non-spoken speech of Mr. Duncan, of Ohio, was to be stere otyped'by the People of the Evening PoatJ-a Speech never before deliver ed in Congres, but manufactured sfter the adjournment. Now aa tne fc.ui tor of the Post has some merit In the eve ol the world as a man of Edit Lttirtt, we do hope, that before he Htereotvpes this budget ol vulgarity and Falsehoods (which we do not ex pect him to correct) that he will, at east, lor the Honor 01 tne language we all profess to respect, put it under the screvrs of the "King the Grammar," and give it 4 touch Syntax at least.' Of of As tlii unspoken Speech is to be the Loco Foco Talisman, it is well to look at it a little now. The following article is taken from the Washington Globe, where, it will be observed, credit is given for it to the Raleigh (N. Carolina; Standard "Ma. Duncax'b Speech. We are inclined, at first to condense this speech, fearing its great length would prevent many of our readers from per using it) but we saw no part that could with propriety be omitted, and hope, from the importance of the subject, all will read, examine, and decide for themselves. That Mr. Bond ia a most reckless and abandoned libeller, does not rest on the assertion of Mr. Dun can alone, but on a crowd of eviden ces and a mass of documentary proof. We might suppose tint Mr. Bond's speech could have no effect on the peo pie, who are. aware 01 tne tricks 0 Federalism, and who have been so of ten deceived by that party. But if this has been the rase, the speech of Mr. Duncan, with the accompanying proofs wilt remove evert dowbt;' ana show that the Federalists charge their own profligacy on the present and pre ceding Administrations. This game they nave for aome time played. They have deranged the currency, suspen ded -specie payment, hampered the public Treasury and brought ruin upon many and embarrassment upon all, for political purposes, and have charged the consequences upon a patriotic Ad ministration and they have now, through the "automaton" Bond, charg ed the Government with extravagance, produrrd by 'Federal' or 'Whig' votes. Rulagh(N. C,) Standard.' We think it was a judicious deter minatnn in the editor of the Standard, not to attempt to condense Mr. Dun can's speech. A msnmighOawell undertake to condense the contents of an air-blloon, a full blown foot-ball, which, the moment a hole U made in the bladder, loses its wind, and be comes perfectly flat and vapid. Dun can's speech is without exception the most accomplished piece of bombast and froth, the most tumid and t urged speciminof inflated, foaming, windy oratory, that it has ever been our for tune to encounter. The following fiss sage may be considered as affording (inclusive proof of the remark we have just made . "Yes, it is said that the Government is trying to be divorced from the State banks. Sir, I deny, that ever the Federal Government waa wedded to the banks. Fhere is an alliance between the Gov ernment and the States; you regard that alliance in the character of a hus band, friend, protector, guardian,! or what you pleaae. To accommodate the Wfiigs. we will call it husband) will agree that the sister Statea con federated, and gave up certain por tions or part of their independence. kupreinacy, and means, and out of those constructed a Federal Govern ment, and impoaed on that Government the duties of a husband toward a them, defining specifically the power lie shall exercise over them in a written Con stitution, which was to stand lor all time a a wall of fire to secure, them from any Federal innovations upon their reserved rights and sovereignties. All this we know to be true; but was the Federal Government thereby to play the husband with and for every hand maid that the State might take into their employ. Was she to bed and board with every wrinkled yellow and toothless washerwoman tates might engage to do that which was beneath their dignity to do themselves?

Was si to bed a ad board with every wrinkled, yellow, and toothless wash erwoman that the Statea might engage to do that which was beneath their dignity to do for themselvey" The old notion of transmigration, is a fool to this. It is a short mode of making a "Grey Mare," otherwise called a She Husband. The North Carolina writer suggests, that if Mr. Bond's speech could have produced any effect npon the public mind, Mr. Duncan'a will remove every doubt, and shew that the Federalists charge their own profligacy on the pre sent and nreceedine administrations. The great object of Mr. Duncan'a speech, as far its meaning can be un dei stood, is, not to prove that Mr. Bond does not tell the truth in the in stances of extravagance that he de tails, but he attempts by a reference to other cases to shew that the Whigs are as bad as the Loco Focos. The a mount of this is, that the Loco Focoa claim no higher credit for themselves, than that of placing their best deeds anon a footing with the worst ot t. -tr onnonents. This is a low species of merit especially as they charge the Whigs with every thing that is base, unworthy, and unprincipled. N. F. Exprtit. CORRESPONDENCE. " Halifax Cturt ., Fa. nly id, 1839.

A gainst those usurpations, so utterly de structive ofjtverylhing that the revo lution won and aancttneu, we nave con tinued to struanteir with a xeal which thus far has not been rewarded by a proportionate success. In 1833, the public money was found in the hands of the Executive, unregulated by law; but, even Gen. Jackaon was unwilling that it should continue thus, and ear nestly recommended that the danger ous trust should be taken from his hand and placed in the custody of the law now in 1833, a willing Senate proposes to place iri the hands of this President, exempted from legal restraints, the funds his predecessor seized. If there were no other indications of the pro gress of rigbt principles, the patriot Whig might be disposed to surrender in despair; but recent events adminis ter consolation, aad teach us confi dence ih the permanence of our free institutions.

The question is sn important one, and requires mature reflection and dis passionate discussion. If we are to continue as we have been and as we are, it is perhaps enough. But if we design to develop our resources if enterprize is to be stimulated and en couraged, our manufactories multipli ed, and our buried wealth brought into activity and nsefulness, our credit must be employed, and our currency enlarged. .
