-Speaking and uniting both languages
with equal facility and purity—learned
in the best literature of both—feeling
an ardent sympathy in emigrants from

past and hopes of 'the future—Henry
A. Muhlenburg is a genuine representa
tive of the wise and philanthropic poli,
cy of William Penn, who made Penn
sylvania an -"asylum for the oppressed
of every nation. Nor is any of her
citizens 'more deeply imjressed 'than
he is with the duty of preserving un
tarnished her public faith. l • No one, in
a station of her political trust, will de
vote himself more zealougly to that
great - end. At the same time, he is
not ignorant , thatthe people, who are
(in this country at least) 'the govern
ment, have a right to require, and must
have laid before them a candid, minute
and faithful account of.their debt (and

wise economy, as will convince them
that whatever, sacrifices ; 'they may be
called upon tol make, w ill produce a

Such is the Man who is presented as
the Democratic candidate for Governor
of Pennsylvania. In every way he is
worthy of this high evidence of his
country's trust—in his past actions, his
known principles. his certain course or
'future conduct. 'While we know full

'• The Convention, while acting on the
nomination of. Martin Van Buren, with
a similar patriotic desire to maintain the
integrity andlarmony of the Democrat
ic party. and to , unite their own prefer
ence with that already so generally
evinced in its scarcely divided' send
ment, present to the suffrages of the
republicans of Pennsylvania a candidate
who has always deserved, as he hal .
heretofore received, the strongest evi
dences of her trust.° When elected by
tier aid in 1836 to the Presidential chair
; she gave him nearly one hundred thou
sand of her democratic votes ; and
when in 1840, he was defeated, as we
believe, by fraud, that large -vote was
increased to more than one hundred
and Sony thousand—a suffrage-larger
than any other ever given by,the de
mocracy of Pennsylvania to a eandi
date for any popular office. -- He is pre
sented again, therefore, to the same ace.
proving demociacy as Jefferson and
Jackson were former, days, when
unfairly defeat4by the arts of Fderal-
Os favoring- and unbought
testimonyAieady accor.ded to him hy a
democratic community, that, from the
days of Washington, has never erred
in a wise and just bestowal of its pre
ference on a candidate for the Pinsiden
tial office.
To retrace the grounds of. this past
and present priference of the Democ
racy of Pennsylvania 'for Martin Van
Biiren, would be, to repeat facts deeply
planted in their recollection—to reca
pitulate the Whole series of his actions
as a public man. ; - He is the candidate
of the American democracy, because,
springing from their ranks..working in
their cause and faithful to their princi
ples, he has served them from boyhood
with ability, devotion, honesty, and
fidelity that surely' setum for a public
servant among a free, viribous, and well
judging penple unchanging confidence,
and trust. The-soh of a farmer, who'
had been actively deVoied to his coun
try's cause through the Revolution,
which had just closed When Martin Van
Buren was' born, he came into life, not
in a large city, tint in a retired country
Valley—not aided by powerful friends,
but relying on his own abilities, and
leaking to his honest fellow citizens for
friendship and confidence. Before,he
teas of age, he was actively enlisted
With the friends of Jefferson who over
threw the' dynasty Of the elder Adams.
When he was first elected tethe State
teiislature, ,the conflict With Great
Britain was just begUn: Throughout
the whole 'of it he was indefatigable in
his exertions to aid its success with all
the power, influence and means that
New York Could, furnish. He was the
most active champion of the- war in her
legislature. For his conduct in thus
- supportinkat the outset of his political
career, the: war and the administration
of Madison,, he excited against 'himself
that malignant hatred of the Federalists
which has ever since piirsued him.—
His subsequent legislative labors were
equally true to the Democratic.cause.
To resist the creation of banks, to ex
tend-popular suffrage, to curb the aris
tocracy, to protect the imprisoned debt
or, there among; the objects of hie tar
ceasing labors. Elected to the Senate
of the United States he took the lead in
opposing the , ad:ministration, of John
Quincy Adams. He vindicated and
supperted Andrew Jackson 'with. petri,
ntie ardor. When the voice of Ameri
can democracy raised that hero to the
Presidential chair, Martin Van. Buren
was, placed by him in the highest ofcfi
of his confidence, acrd _will did - he- re

suddenly brought to e ar among a peo
ple unprepared to enc enter such acts,
and heretofore relyin on 'the vote by
ballot as the evidence' and safeguard, of
the *ill of the Majority. The result of
unwarrantable practices such as' these
drove 'Martin Van Buren from the place
where the peitple placed him. But
they were a false and !fraudulent echo
of the people's will ; and they
,now but
await that opportunity to make known
''that will, in tones of ndignant truth.—
_Pennsylvania desires among the first to
do so. She presents Martin Van Bu

sacred confidence in ll the man, thim 'to

honesty and national virtue, froni the
disgrace that Federalism iought to -at
tach to thein, by the means. resorted
to in the canvass of 1840.
Nor does the Democracy, in thus se
lecting him. look only to-tile past. I
looks to the future, It foresees in the
approaching contest a desperate-strug
gle to elevate the man and the measures
against which it has been contending,
from. the !day,when Martin Van Buren
stood sjde by side with Andrew Jack
son, in opposing the principles,Tolity
and plans of Henry Clay and John
Quincy Adams. After. a lapse of twen
ty years; during which HENRY CLAY
has been repeatedly rejected by the peo
ple, or
.by his own doubting friends, he
is once tnore, we suppose for the last
time, presented by his party as their
candidate. He asks Pennsylvania to,
bestow upon - him her electorial vote,
while she has fresh - in recollection his
conduct in 1825, when he defeated the
patriot Jackson—her choice and, that oft
the - Democracy ef the Union—ky
coalition with John Quincy Adam ,
mane in direct'opposition to the instruc t
tione of his own State, and closed by
hisraccepting from 'him whom he thus
served, an office by which he placed
himself in the line of safe prece
dents," as an aspirant to the Presidency.
The history of Mr.,Clay, since that
coalition, has been one of unconiprel
raising hostility to the Democratic par
.ty,_and of bitter enmity to its venerable
chieftain Andrew Jackson- Actuated
by such sentiments, he whO had' even
before denounced the just punishment
of the British incendiaries, Arbuthnot
and Ambrister, as an , :example of in
humanity, cruelty, and, ambition"—
viewed the evident preference of his
country . for that gallant chief as a-mis
fortune to be classed with war, pesti
lence and famine," the three great

regardless of the judicial character
of the body in which he eat, succeed,
by a partizan vote, in condemning by a ,
series of resolutions,, his illustrious foe

dignant voice of the American people
,was not slow to expunge his resolutions
from the Journal- 'of the Senate, and
thiis .ag ain to pronounce between the
two .the same• verdict which they , had
repestedly given before. •
In 1838, still harping on his favorite
scheme of a 'National Bank—at the
very time when the Bank-of the United
States had suspended specie payments
and was in a state of actual insolvency
—.Mr. Clay once more pressed- upon
COngress, with all the force of his par
ty' tactics and personal 'zeal, the crea
tion of a fifty million Bank. ~ 1 * be

United States is required byl the com
mon good of the whole country." was
his language while standing amid .the
wrecks of hapPiness and fortune strew
ed around by the institution he had ad
vocated, praised and clung to.
Although in 1839 Mr. Clay was set
aside by the convention of his political
friends at Harrisburg, as unavailable be
fore'the people, and the campaign of
1840 was fought under another chief
with the cries of , . change" and two
dollars eday and'roast beef," and with
the accompaniments of coons and coon
skins, songs, hard cider, riot, and in
temperance; yet he was found ready VS
take the lead in the successes thus at
tained. Durin g the well known extra
session of 1841, the proceedings of the
triumpharit foes of Democracy were
marked out and carried by the unbridled
zeal of the self-constituted Dictator.—
The acts of that memorable - session,
emanating fron himself and his coun
cils, have , been mostly repealed and
condemned at: the poll's by the'people.
They stand as' a monuinent of the unfit
riess of-Mr. day for the practical duties
of an American Statesman. He repeal
ed the'Constitutional -Treasury—that
repeal gave the public moneys to his:
favorite discredited banks. • He passed,
a Bankrupt law—it Was so intolerable
that his own friends rescinded it. He
laid the corner stone of a National Debt
it has grow,n already to twenty-six
S 'millions; and 'requires an additional
tax upon the people of more than a mil

.of the pockets of the American people,

charter a National Bank —and' twice. it
