fearlessly rebuked their infringement when
occasion required. He has manfully re- 1
sisted the. reckless and prodigal powers-at l i

meddling in the affairs of our State. He
refused to convene the Legislature for the
purpose of legalizing the suspension of',
specie payments, thus holding the banks up 1
to the letter and spirit of their charters.
He vetoed a mammoth improvement hill,

a proud and commanding position—they

we set out: "What would be gained by de

What has Porter done,'that renders this

The Van Bu c n Party have hitherto
attached to the ~ • lye. numbers of the 1
working classes, throughout the country,
simply by repr , ...nting themselves as De
mocrats, and the r opponents as Federal
ists. This ga ,,. . of Imposition they have
played off so to. , that the working men
generally care a w no longer to be decei
ved, especially si • e they have discovered
that true Dem. rats are invariably the
friends of the . - .ple;and that the conduct
of the Van But , in party is proof enough'
that they are not the friends, but the ene
of the pea lel Now we hold that
the industrious c sought to oppose the
Van Buren fact n•r:iot because of any
word or sound w stsoever, but because the
Van Buren facti n is opposed to theii best
interests, as the hole history o their ad
ministration provjes. We assume ' that this
is a sufficient rea i n for the working men
to withhold their , ,support from any faction
or party whatsoever, provided it be foun
ded in fact; because whosoever or whatse,
ever is opposed tics the beat interests of the
laboring classes, must necessarily be op.
posed to the hest interests of the whole
community at large; for it is well known
that the laboring classes constitute the
substantial strength of society, die bone
and sinew of the country, and . hence the
Van Burenites are continually endeavoring
to chain these classes to their car of tri
umph, by the word " Democrat." Now
if there be- more magic in one word than
another, it is surely in this, because it hai
wrought miracles in many instances; that
is, it has so far silenced the voice of patri
otism and the dictates of reason, as to in
duce many of them to support their bit
terest opponents ; and to suffer themselves
to be blindly led by a set of corrupt, heart=
less demagogues, intent only on promoting
their own selfish views and nefarious pur
poses. But the eyes of thousands are
already. opened; the scales have fallen;
they have at length discovered that these
'pretended Democrats are in reality wolves
in sheep. clothing! whose piteous bleatings
are but the howls of hunger after office!
and whose virtuous indignation against
Federalists is only a rage for spoils!.
The proof of the opposition of the Van
Buren faction to the working men lies in
this, that nearly l all their measures have
had a direct tendency either to depress the
rate of wages, or to abolish wages altoge- '
ther. For the truth of this assertion, we
oppeal to every man's own observation and
experience—public and, private improve
ments have- been arrested, manufactures
have been stopped, commerce has been
paralysed, and a bard money currency
converted into shin plasters—and who can
doubt that these effects have been produ
ced by the measures of the Van Buren'
administration? And who does _not know
that these causes have thrown hundreds of
thousands of working men out of 'employ
merit? Let Mr look at htime! The coal
trade Was.fiourisling beyoexamplit; its
prospects were in the big t degree
tering; miners, mechani "Ind laborers;
to a man, throughout this gion, were re
ceiving constant employinent and the high-,
est wages, the edifier wenabled to give
this employment and th wages, because
his-cesi was in demand, i nitdemanded lair
.ie i
prices; the blessing s or - suciessful industry
were every where felt, and not a cloud
could be seen to dim,the prospect of the
future! But no sooner had the effects of
the measures oldie government begun to
operate than the whole picture was chan
ged, slid for the last year, in this region,
the working ; men have begn struggling
against the.difficnities and embarrassments
produced by these measures; and how
much longer they will have to 'struggle
must depend in i great measure upon their
successful museum in thiti:wer of n the
government on the people." - .
