behalf of one candidate, he verbally "avowed [his]
predilections" fur his opponent.
Again urging the claims of gratitude, he exclaims:
"Is the individual whom our mistaken gratitude
has elevated to the high, but, I hope, not irresponsible
office of President of the United States, above or below
the rules of honor, truth, and justice, which govern the
common men?" ,
Inhis second letter, he still keeps up this strain. He
says. "after the election of General Jackson, I wish
el himsueeess most sincerely." "I still wrote to the
General as a friend." "I wished him to be the Pres
ident of the nation," 4-c. 4.c. And after telling us
' that "HE WROTE TO HIM (the President) AS IF HE WAS
REALLY WHAT HE WISHED HIM TO BE"—he concludes
by saying, "THE PRAISE WHICH I GAVE HIM IN AD
VANCE WAS NEVER EARNED."
NOW,.We beg ourreeders to attend to what this s
COSHATIT and HYPOCRITE has the effrontery to declare
in his last letter. Not only contradicting in the most
positive manner all he has said in his previous letter, in
relation to his efforts to contribute to the elevation of
the President; but avowing sentiments of hostility pre
viousto thatevent, wholly at war with the professions
of friendship which ho admits he has continued to Mall
"My object, in the present communication, is not
to notice the falsehoods of the anonymous writer, or
to defend a character which, from my youth upwards,
in purity, may at least compare with that of General
Jackson; nor to add proofs in support of specific
charges agains him, which have not been denied; but
to vindicate myself from what I regard as a most
serious imputation—that of haring supported, aided,
or countenanced the election of such a man to the
Chief Magistracy of this peaceful, enlightened and
virtuous peop7e. WITH THE PERFECT KNOWLEDGE
wittca MY O PPORTUNITIES ENABLED ME TO POSSES,
or HIS NARROW, ILLITERATE MIND—HIS WANT OF
ALL MORAL CONTROL OVER HIS VIOLENT, ARBITRARY, 1
AND TYRANNICAL TEMPER, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN
LSEICUNABLE IN ME, AS AN HONEST MAN, TO HAVE
CONTRICUTED 10 BRING SUCH A MISFORTUNE ON MY
COUNTRY. I defy any one to produce a single line I
ever written by me recommending him to the Chiefl
Magistracy, knowing him, as I did, to be unfit for
a magistracy of any kind."
To show the utter destitution of the principle of this
man, we make the following extract from a public let
ter on file in the Department of State, which he wrote
to induce the removal of a gentleman who had become
obnoxious to him, in Florida. The sentiment exprea.
led with regard to the President, will be found in ad
mirable keeping with those which we have given in
capitals above. The letter is dated 23cl September
"According to the admissions of Mr. --, he
stands convicted of a most injurious mistepresenta
don of my judicial conduct, and his letters display a
defect of the moral sense truly deplorable. I KNOW
TOO WELL THE INDIGNANT F EELINGS OF oun YEN-
Eitsta.r. PRESICENT AGAINST ANYTHING DISHONOR
ABLE, to believe that this affair will not be deemed of
sufficient importance to claim his attention."
or - a piece with this shameless want of principle
, and consistency, are the various aspects in which his
capriCe has painted the character of General Jackson.
At one time in speaking of the General's imperious
mind, he says "everything must conform to his views,
whether original conceptions of his own, or adopted
from others, 4-c. 4-c. "It is impossible for any
honest and independent man to be long near him,
without finding that he ISIUST EITHEF. ADVANCE HIS
OPINIONS, SUBMIT IN SILENCE, OR TAKE HIS DE
PARTURE." And yet this very independent .c,,ntle
man, in the next breath, pretends that during the long
period that he was "near him," General Jaelcson had
no mind of his own at all. He says, " judging from
what I witnessed, he never wrote a single official
letter, report, or answer to an address; these things,
while I was with him, having been prepared by
ere!!" What a pretension have we here for a mis
erable copyist, who was employed, as he admits him
self, for " a trifling compensation, as translator of
the Spanish language! !!" He, however, has the
conscience to surrender, in another part of his letter,
the modest appropriation he makes of all the Gener
al'i 'Productions. Ho says. "1 do not mean to in
sinuate that same of his ideas are not to be frond in
his public toritings—sometimes too many of them
are there," &c. 4-c. And then our wretched scribb
le: provides against a denial and apprehended con
viction of his falsehood, by thus characterizing the pa
pers which be prepared as an amanuensis, under the
General's dictation, by saying, "Some are drawn from
his conversation, and some from rude and illiterate
This unfortunate judge has acted, as he now finds,
under a false view of the President's character. He
tells the public in his last letter that "He [the Presi
dent] is but an indifferent diatinguisher of real
merit and talents; the most abject and unprincipled
• flatterers being preferred." Having acted upon
this false idea, it is no wonder that he supposed his
renomination as judge of Florida "a matter of course."
The President, however, seems to have looked rather
to his conduct in the judicial station—to have consul
ted the intelligent men of the Territory with regard to
the satisfaction ho gave to the people, than to have
satisfied himself with his fulsom and flattering let
ters. Accordingly, we find, from the following letter
of Wm. P. Duvet., Governor of the Territory, the
species of information on which the President relied
in the discharge of his duties to a distant people:
WASHINGTON, MONDAY NIGHT, April 22. 1832.
Dear Sir: On my return to my lodgings to-night, I
found your note of this date in relation to my convey
sations with the President on the subject of the renom
ination of H. M. Brackenridge, as judge of West Flo-
' • bratirtous Esc APE.-N soldier of the 85th Light In

On my arrival here, I was informed that be bad been

I know Mr. Wright to be a man of high standing
and integrity. He was considered as a good officer,
except by the Judge and a fe w others, who were his
personal entries. The recommendations of Mr.
Wright for office are on file in the Department of
State, and will show who urged his pretensions to of
'lle frequent disputes which the Judge had with this
law officer were intended to drive him out of office; this
c ourse certainly operated most injuriously on the Pub
' lie business, and affected the respectability of the court.
Judge Brackenridge participated freely in the polit
ical feuds of the Territory, and was in the habit of
writing articles for a party paper at Pensacola--at
tacking under fictitious signatures, or the editorial
bead, his brother officers, and those opposed to his po
*lca opinions. As a judge, Ido not believe he ever
bad the confidence of the bar or the people of Florida.
Strong in his partialities and prejudices, he was con
sidered, by the respectable members of the bar as of
ten influenced by his political or personal feelings, for
or unjust the suitors in . his courts.
ffirsthout refrenee to party divisions, I have recent
sivlrrosiggss, from the most respectable authority, that

entartalned for his legal knowledge, independence, or

DEXOCILAT3, BC ON YOUR GU ARD!—We understand
that, in addition to the dishonest tricks that will, no
doubt, be resorted to, by our political opponents, to in
jure the democratic candidates, a few persona who
profess to belong to the party, are making s tcret efforts
to aid our enemies, and defeat our ticket. On the eve
of the election, when there is no time for contradiction,
their charges will doubtless be put forth. We would
warn the party against the designs of these secret slan
derers and disorganizers, and call on them to mark ev
ery man who attempts to defeat the nominations of the
party, by vilifying the candidates. Our ticket is un
doubtedly one of the best that has ever been nominated
in the county; our candidates are unexceptionable as re
gards moral and political honesty, and possess the es
teem of the citizens at large. Their standing is such
I that even oar opponents, unscrupulous and vigilant as
they arc, have never dared to question the integrity and
capability of any of the gentlemen on the democratic
ticket. When, therefore, any man professing to art
with the democracy, is found assailing and secretly
slandering the candidates of the party, he must be gov.
erncd by the basest motives, and should be locked upon
as an enemy to the success of republican principles.—
We are not surprised to hear that there are a few such
—we expected it; but we feel confident that their treach
ery can have no influence with h mest democrats, who
are always willing to sacrifice persona: feelingslo en
sure the success of their principles. The designs of
these men ha've been brought to light, by their having
made application to seine honorable members of the
party, to assist them in their plans to injure our candi
dates, and aid our enemies. For the harmony of the
we hope these men may desist frxn,their unworthy ef
forts; the democratic ticket cannot be injured by the
assaults of our open enemies or defeated by the treach
ery of professed friends, and althqugh dissension a
mong oursslves, may render the contest unpleasant, it
cannot prevent the certain election 'of the whole demo
cratic ticket. But if they persist intheir hostility to the
ticket, let them come oat openly and boldly and avow
their feelings; no good democrat will be guilty of any
act towards his party that he is ashamed to own, and
all efforts that require the cloak of secrecy should be
repudiated by every honest member of the party.

AS ALL SUCH CHARACTERS SHOULD BE TREATED
The motto of every good democrat who does not want
to see the opposition elected, should be THE TICK

BUT THE TICKET, and we hope - that no prudent
member of the party wilt countenance any other feel
MLitt sat W mar is matter of amusement to
witness the impotent assaults of the Gazette upon the
democratic candidate for Congress. Conscious, as
they are, of his great talents and reputation as a politi
cian, and certain as they feel of his election by a tri.
umphant vote, it is a little surprising that they should
expend so much gall and malevolence in what they
know must be a fruitless undertaking. But such ill
natured efforts cost them nothing, and perhaps they
might as well vent their overflowing spleen through
this, as any other channel.
We shall not go into a circumstantial defence of the
falseand ridiculous charge that Mr. Wilkins betrayed
his "constituents' interests in 183`2." It is only neces
sary to say that the last witness brought to sustain the
charge is no other than Henry Clay—even the identi
cal Henry Clay who introduced and carried the com
promise bill, and therefore was dubbed, by his admiring
satellites, the Great Pacificator. Tell it not to the vo
ters of Allegheny county, that, in °ramr to injure Mr.
Wilkins, the Gazette not only deil ns to call in the tes
timony of Mr. Clay, but calls his conduct "manly and
dignified." The readers of the Gazette, and all those
who take an interest in Antimasonic movements, will
not forget how much pains have been taken by the blue
noses and their organ to decry Henry Clay, because of
his abandonment of this very tariff of 11112. Yet the y
have the stupid effrontery to use a man whn they have
taken every pains to prove unworthy of confidence and
trust, as a witness against one whose conduct they now
choose to assail. Can such bare faced humbug avail
any thing with the intelligent yeomanry of Allegheny?
We confidently answer, no!
Tax FOURIER CONVENTION. — The sessions of this
body have been rendered highly interesting and instruc
tive through the lectures and the letters of the leading
advocates of the cause: The attendance from a dis
tance was not large, but meetings of the Conven
tion were well attended by great numbers of our citi
zens, whe seemed to take a lively Interest in the pro
ceedings, and evinced a strong desire to investigate the
subject of Fourierism thoroughly. We are at once sur
prised and gratified with the rapid progress the doc
trines of Association have made in the public mind in.
the last few months. When we consider the vast im
portance of the changes proposed, and the immense
opposition they must meet with from those who are
wedded to the existing selfish institutions of society,
we are astonished that so many converts to their utili
ty and excellence have been made. That many of the
details of the Fourier system will be found impractica
ble or requiring alteration, is more than probable—and
that the system will not be adopted so rapidly and so
generally, as its more devoted disciples expect, we are
eonvinced.—But we are also satisfied that. it is based
on Benevolence and good will to man, and will secure
to those who embark in if, many pleasures and comforts
they do not now enjoy.—And so thinking of it, we
shall attend to its progress with no little ansioty, end

POLITICAL HOIIESTY. - A German paper in Phila
delphia is in the habit of publishing two editions on each
publication day, ono of which contains matter pleasing
to its friends at home, and the other such as will be
agreeable to persons in other parts of the state, who
entertain different political sentiments. Whatever
doubt may be entertained of the political honesty of
such conduct, the publisher evinces a very accommoda

EVP The American fur some time past has been di_
recting its miserable attempts of coarse wit, against
our large and respectable German population. In its
very smart efforts it lags in the name of Mr. JOHN AN -

and attempts to give point to its joke by alluding in a
vulgar and contemptuous manner to the countrymen of
this gentleman. Mr. Anikrogg ie well known to the
citizens as a respectable and intelligent German, a
staunch democrat, and highly esteemed by his country
men. who h.ave the best opportunity ocknowing his real
worth. As it is not expected that worthy members of
our party should be regarded favorably by such oppo
nents as the American, we are not surprised that Mr.
Anderegg should be subjected to its abst.e.
The democrats of Montgomery, at their late
county convention, declared their preference for F. R.

This matter is beginning to attract the munition of
the party throughout the State, and as a great number
of good man have been spoken of as deserving of the
nomination, we expect that after the October election
the friends of all be active in advancing the pros
pects of their ihvorites. From among the host of Haines
that will be Hesented to the convention there will be
no difficulty in selecting a candidate deser' n, of the
support and confidence cf the party. and in 1814, we
will carry the state bye majority unprecedented.
Sr ATE DEBTS AND REPUDIATION.—The Baltimore
Argus furnishes an apt illustration of the difference be
tween wbig professions of regard fur the "public faith,"
and whig practice in meeting the responsibilities of
public debts. In Maryland, as in other States, the
whigs are unceasing in their clamors against repudia
tion: and there, as elsewhere, their professions have no
other object than to give new life to public credit, in
order to renew expenditures and roll up still higher the
volume of public debt. "It is undeniably true," says
that paper, lthat when the whigs assumed the control
of the public '?affairs of the State in all its departments,
that the State was free from debt, and a surplus
in the Treasury: and that now, after some ten or
twelve years of their management. its energies are i
crushed by a debt of upwards of sixteen millions of
dollars and a bankrupt Treasury!"
It adds the equally significant fact, that in regard to
the taxation which was imposed to meet the interest
on this whig debt, the collection of which devolved on
the county officers, "all the counties under the control
of Democratic boards of Commissioners have taken the
steps pointed out by the law, whilst the only counties
in the State which are wholly delinquent, are the strong
holds of Whig gery!"

HARD CIDER 'COON ERY. — The hard cider campaign,
fraught with so many evils to thp country, is not with
out its benefits. It has opened the eyes of the people,
and aroused to a more correct and faithful discharge of
their duty to their country and themselves, and de
mocracy has risen in her glory upon the ruins made by
the abominable conduct of the Whigs. The most in
telligent and respectable men are daily abandoning the
hard ciderparty. But there are other benefits arising
from that campaign. One of our exchanges says:

FOR THE POST.
HON. JAMES BUCHANAN AND THE PRESI-
"Resolved, Th at the Democratic party of Pennsyl
vania will assert the high claims of the State, and of
"our candidate before the National Convention ."—Leg
islative resolves of 14th April, 1813.
To the Citizens of Pennsylvania:
Was the above resolution meant as mere empty va
poring, or as the basis of firm and consistent action?
Something intended to keep the word of promise to the
car and break it to the hopes of the state, or a substan
tial pledge, binding upon the honor and conscience of
its authors? A mere jesuitical juggle, which might,
from the juxtaposition of the Words, mean any thing or
nothing; or an assertion of claims that were to be made
with the dignity that became the State, and persevered
in with a fidelity that would insure the success of our
candidate? Was it a mere artful device, calculated to
give a false impression as to the patriotism and consis
tency of the democratic members who adopted it; or
was it intended to be followed up by a promptitude of
action that should evince that good faith and principle
were alike concerned in its adoption? Such thoughts
seem, at this crisis, almost to force themselves upon the
mind, as nothing is more contemptible in the eves of a
1 discerning public, than for men to be lofty in their words
and laggard in their actions. Presuming that the reso
lution referred to, was dictated in sober earnestness, I
shall proceed to set forth some of the grounds on which
ths claims . f the Pennsylv mia candidate are based,
and to urge upon the citizens of our own and other
states, reasons that should induce them to give a pre
ference to Mr. Buchanan over other individuals that
have been named for the Presidency. And in pursu
ing this subject, I shall first consider the claims of Mr
Van Buren, with that candor that belongs to an inves
tigation in which the relative merits of those profe»ing

BUCKING ti ALAI'S LEjTEIi. TO TILE TIMES.
To the Edildr of the London l'eozei:
SIR,—In a letter published in your paper of Wednes
day last, signed by Mr. James Gordon Bennett, ofNitor
York, the Writer denies the truth of some stancimate
mine respecting the general character of his parr, rad
his practice of obtaining money by using it as e. ishiciss
of private slander. If Mr. Bennett were as well
known in London as he is in New York, I should not
think it necessary to notice anything said by him; nor
would the communityof that city require it. But, sr
our readers in England may suppose thataorne degree
of credit may be attached to this denial,' beg to assess
them that all the facts stated in my work on America
respecting Mr. Bennett ar: perfectly true; and no one
who has ever resided in or even visited New York, fec
ever so short a period, will doubt my assertion when I
say that the New York Herald surpasses the worst
newspaper ever published in England in the worst of
times, in all thatis generally considered degrading in a
public journal. If I stood alone in the opinion I should
still repeat it, knowing it to be well founded and true
but I may refer to Captain Maryatt's accoint of the
newspaper press of America, in the second chapter of
the second series of his Diary, in which Mr. Bennett's
paper is there described as the worst of all the disrepu
table papers in the United States, and as Mr. Dickens
truly says, in his Notes, "their name i s Legion." Cap-.
taro Marrvatt mentions also the fact, that, beforehehad
been in America six weeks he was attacked by Mr.
Bennett, and a copy of the paper was sent to Captain
Marrvatt, written in the margin—" Send twenty dollars
and it shall be stopped."
I place before the English public these opinions and
assertions of others, in corroboration of my own; be
cause mere assertion against assertion, unsupported
by corroborative testimony, would leave the question in
the same doubt as before.
I um, sir,
your obedient servant,
