Instead. therefore ;of replying to it through my old

'address myself eireetly to yon, and shall express
my opinione with the freedom and sincerity which
are due to the subject—to my position in regard to
it—and tie the respect and gratitude with which,'
your conduct has inspired me.
I cannot apprehend that what I am about to say
will induce any one to suppose that I undervalue
the honor' of the office with which your favorable
estimate of my capacity and principles has inclined
you once, more to connect my name. Every right
minded American citizen must regard an meant
bent of the Presidential Office, possessing the con.
faience and esteem of those who raised him to
power, and challenging the respect of all parties by
an honest, wise and,manly administration of his
trust; as enjoying the highest distinction knoWn to
the political institutions of mankind. ' lifevtthe- t

If, tlepreaere, the support which you, with whom

included that not only of the in fl exible and victori

and the consequent assurance of success, I could

degree improbable.
I appreciate and honor your anxious de-ire to
see the iriteitrity and firmness of the Democratic

New 'ark Eleed
On Tuesday the2d last, the State of New York
held her that election under the new constitution.
We had *wed that the Democracy of our sister
State, which had been so long anti sorely rent by
intestine, divisions, aid jetdousies; would heal all
theirimPures and difficulties,- amkotne together, at
this 4iction, in the. rause.of Democratic truth, as
one Man ;'and redeem the Empire from the thral
dom of Federalism, and auti•rentism, which hare
lately fastened their withering grasp upon it. But, it
seems the Democrats of that State, have, instead of
uniting and laboring to dejeat their enemies, been
at work most assiduously tai accomplish their own
destruction; and the returnsixOlemotes show that,it
this, they have stweeeded tolbeir hearts content.
The Staterhasgotrit„ovelwhelminOyfor Federalism.
It seems that the Stsue ticket was rendered ex
ceptionable to a makity of the Democratic. party,
from the Proscriptive conduct 41 - the Delegates by
whom it was formed.
A Democratic Siege Coqesitiontissemblekat Sy
racuse on the 26th of. Sept., last, and nominated a
ticket for state officers. That portion of the party
which• rejoice in the nick-name of "old hun
kers;" had a majority in the Convention over the
"barn-burners," as the other branch is elegantly
teried. Availing themselves of this preponder-
ance, - the " old hunkers;' in making their nomina
iions, entirely excluded from the ticket all mem
- bets of the " barn-burner" divigion, although the
latter, embraces such men as . C. C. Cambreling,
Jolnyan Buren, John A. Dix, and,' until the; death
of Silas Wright, had his honored name enri lied
among its number.
This exclusion seems to have fanned into - a vio-
lent flame the scarcely, smothered coals of an old
resentment entertained by the " barn-burners"
.against the "old hunkers," 'arising, out of the de
feat of Silas Wright last fall,' who, the former al
lege, was defeated by the treachery of the latter.—
Accordingly, a mass convention of "the Young
Democracy" of Now York was held at Herkimer
on Tuesday the,27th ult., at which C. C. Cacaln...--
. hag presided. An address was reported by John
Van Buren. David F.. Field, of N. Yprk, reported'
resolutions repudiating the proceedings of the Sy
racuse Convention, and advising, the Democrats of
Ness , York fla i vote as though`there
,were no nomina
tions pretending tb be regular. They reaffirm and
stand fast by the _principle of the Wilmot Proviss
about which the Syracuse Conventior; had, said no
thing. These
, k•esolutions were unanimously adop
ted! No State Ticket was nominated. Hon: David
Wilmot, of Pennsylvania, (audior of the Proviso.)
C. Cambrelind and John Van Buren were 4
principal speakers.
Of course, under such circumstances, it is easy to
preceive thatAhe returns of the election will furniih
no indication of party strength in New, York. The
Democracy pf that state,
.although admitted to be
largely in the majority, cannot be expected to es
cape an overwhelming, and, (because . produced
by their own folli,) disgraceful defeat.
The Wilmot Proviso.
THE. Wastas Pnovrso.—The great principle in=
volved in the Wilmot Proviso, seems to be taking
firm loot in New York. The democratic, counties
of Herkimer, Delaware, Onondaga, St. Lawrence,
Suffolk, Cayuga; Wayne, Tompkins, Chemung and
West . Chester, have endorsed it fully in their coun
ty meeting,s. Those counties gave majorities for

Whilst the glorious results of the election in this
State have afforded to every true democrat cause
for heartfelt congratulation, it is much to be regrett
ed that the congressional elections did not also take
place this year. Owing to disaffection in our ranks,
the storm, and consequent smallness of the vote
last year, nearly a hill dozen of full-blown federal
ists were returned to Congress, who, with the fai --
fight and the large vote of the present year, would
have stood no possible chance of success. It is in
deed a drop of sorrow in our overwhelmihg cup of
rejoicing, that these federal worthies were not in
the power of the people of their several districts at
the late election. If they had, there would be a
different face on the relative strength of parties in
the congressional delegation from this 'State. A
glance at the returns will prove this : .
District b, Montgomery and Delaware, will be
mis-represented in the next Congress by John H.
Fteedley, (fed.,) although it has now, given a demo
cratic majority of over 1,200 !
District 6, Bucks and Lehigh, has given a demo
cratic majority of 800, but will be misrepresented
in the next Congress by John W. Hornbeck. (fed.)
District fl, Luxeme and Columbia, will be mu
represented for the next two years by Chester' But
ler, (fed) although these two sterling counties have
Fiver' to Shook and Lonstreth the sweeping ma
jority of 2,670 !
District 13, Northumberland, Lyeomirig, Sulli
van, Clinton, and Union, will be misrepresented
by James Pollock, (fed.,) although the majority for
Shrink and Longstreth is from 300 to 500.
District 15, York and Adams, in which Henry
Nes, (fed.) accidentally slipped in. last year, has
now given 600 democratic majority.
District 16, Perry [ Cumberland, and Franklin has
given about 600 majority/or Shenk, and yet will be
misrepresented for the next two years in the nation
al 'councils by Jasper Brady; an ultra federalist!
District 18. counties of Fayette, Greene, ant.
Somerset, will once merits rejoice in the - peculiar
ratiocin'ations and muicinatioms .of Andrew. Stewart.
the insane hero of the h gb tariff party ; but what a
withering rebuke has been administered to him by
the 5 to 600 majority for Shank and Longstreth !
To disprove these figures, be will have to write
eien yet more atr.ingely than be has on the tariff
District 20, Beaver and Washington counties,
last• year elected, by s very Elite vote, John Dickey
(fed.) as the deft congressman bnt it has now
given a majority of nearly 200 for Stunk.
District 22. Crawford, Mercer, and Venango,last
item returned John H. Ferrety, (fed.) This year,
on a full vote, every county in the district has giv.
en a democratic majority amounting in all to about
1,200 !
District 24, counties of Armstrong, Clearfield,
Cambria, and Indiana, lasi year returned Alexander
Irvin, (fed.) whilst this year it has given a round
majority, for Shank.
Here, then, are not less than rev congressional
diStricts which will be represented in the next Con-
Crby federalists; and every one of which has
year given democratic majorities, some of them
reaching even to thousands. The political divi
sion of the Pennsylvania delegation in the next
Congress will be—democrats, 7 ; federalists 17.
Had the elections taken, place the present year, the
picture would be exactly *arcane, as it should be;
for no man, in his senses, will pretend that the
skeleton results of last year reflected the true opin
ions of the people of Pennsylvania then or now.
It remains; to be seen, however whether the rev
federal congressman whom we have named, with
this unmistakeable expression of pnblic sentiment
in their several districts staring them full in the face,
will have the effrontery, when they take their seats
at Washington next December, to oppose the popu
lar verdict rendered in such solemn and imposing
form. It remains to be seen whether, in utter con
tempt of the sovereign will, they will display such
an infinite fund of assurance as to oppose the ad
ministration of Mr. Polk in the vigorous and effect.
ire proseeminn of the Mexican war; and whether
they will also lift their hands and their voices to
disturb the successful and popular tariff of 1846.
If they do this. ; as there is too much reason to fear
they will, their conduct will add another to the
many flagrant examples on record whit what utter
disdain federalism is wontto treat the popular will.

1t„,,, ge-..almost incredible -- to look back
even afe Mon years, and see what a volume of
political -4ory, ay, and political philosophy is
crowded nto that short space of time. Seven years
ago the etleral party was in the midst of a mighty
triumph. ! The country from one end to the other
was ringing with the shoats of the hard eider rev.
ellers ; log cabins and living coons, white and grey,
on four legs and two, were every where parading
our roads and streets in long processions, amid the
shouts of "change,” "change," " change," like
the triumphal buzzes of a victorious army. , The
whole seventeen millions of our citizens, men, wo
men and Children: were all tremblink with fear or
gladdened with joy. The day and the pageants
passed by—the enemies of Democracy triumphed.
Now, mark the result. Who could believe it I
These seventeen millions, with three more added
to their number, are all now as calm as a- summer
morn-- - --all,, in a general sense, prosperous; and yet
none of the CHANGES have taken place in the
country that were feared or expected. We are all
going on as before. The victories of 1840—of all
the Banks—Fiscal Agents ; or Exchequer - Banks—
Bankrupt Laws, or Protective Tariff's, not one is
left to tell the story of those who proposed or advo•
clued them. What a lesson for the present—tbt
the felting Thus have perished those Federal is-
Sues. Thus will perish all Federal---all anti-De
mocratic issues. v
There may now be said to be no issue any where
proposed against the Democracy of the country—
none at least, of those heretofore presented or
known—they have been abandoned, if not repudi
ated, tit their own advocates, as well as condemn
ed by the whole country. But new ones will arise,
nay, new ones are arising ; and it becomes erery
Democrat, as well as every friend to the re rose, and
good government of the United Slates, to scan them.

come. How frequently have many well dispdsed
Democrats been misled by the glare of Federal
sues—;-by their deceptive and specious delusions
when Brea presented, and. thus for. awhile enable
the enemies of Democracy to tritunphl It is to be
hoped the experience of the past will suffice to
stake them wary for the future ; that they will
look before they leap ; or, like those who have gone
before, they will regret their precipitancy and their
Now, when our principles and our party are firm
ly establiihed, and all old issues against 'us aban
doned or condemned, ir becomes us to be more
than usually watchful.
We have vigilant and unscrupulous foes who
know they cannot conquer us while united, and
therefore seek to divide that they may conquer us
so. Thii was their coarse pencliitg the late election
in this State—this is their course now in New York;
and no doubt will be attempted wherever they can
hope for macerate.
• The enemies of Democracy hate readily chang
ed their names es their measures became odious,
and they no doubt will soon be found under a new
•and more thatching cognomen. Federalist, Nation
al-Republican, Antima-on, have 'gone, and Demo
cratic Whig gill stroll follow; and, em long or the
signs of the times are disjoint and out of frame,
they will be the " only true frients of freedom"—
Once they were the "only true friends of the
enibn." Already they threaten to dissolve the
Union if they cannot rule it as they wish. Let the
Democracy of the country, we say again, look to it
- well, that no portion of there are• c aught ih the 'rap
