White . Men Must Rule America:
The Best New York Weekly Published.
FOR isos
The New York Da3 - -Rook Is a straightforward
Radical, Democratic paper, with a larger eircu-
Winn than any other Dernoeratic Journal ever
published on this continent, and it enters on
the threshold of 15114 more pritspemus and tare
hopeful of tht*great cause It upholds than ever
before. Standing on the Declaration of Inde
pendence, that "all (white) men are equal," and
therefore entitled to equal rights, it is opposed
to all forms and degrees of special legislation
that conflict with this grand central truth of
Democracy, and over all and above all, does it
combat that monsfrons . treason to American
liberty, which, thrusting the negro element in
to oim political system must of necessity wreck
the whole mighty fabric left us by our fathers.
God has created white men superior and ne
groes inferior, and • therefore all the efforts of
the past six years to abolish Ills work and
equalize with negroes—every law violated, eve
ry State Constitution overthrown. every life
sncrificed. and every dollar expended, are ne
fs•ssarily Just's° many steps towards national
suicide; and the simple and awful pro lem now
upon us is just this—shall we recover our rea
son and retrace our steps, or march on to Mon
erelism, Roelof anarchy, and the total ruin of .1
our country.
The Day Rorilf, therefore, demands,the resto- I
rfttion of the 'Ehion as it was"—n Union of co.
equal States upon the white basis,. as the only
hope, and the only means posthte under heaven
for saving the grand l•leas of 1770, and the fund
amental priciples of American liberty, and if
the real freemen: and the earnest believers In
that sacred and glorious cause- in which the
men of the Revolution offered uir their lives,
-will now labor to expose the lamoranee,deluston l
and treason of the Mongrel' parts-, it will sue

More than ever devoted to all the varied purpo
ses of a news paper, ConsCious that it reach

Journal, beyond perhaps their heal paper; it
will continue and improve its "News of the
Week" Summary, so as to present a transcript
of the World's events In each issue. Its "Fam
ily Department" will embrace the best original
and selected stories, Its "Agricultural Depart
ment" will be fully sustained, and being the
only paper of its class made up expressly for
country circulation, It is confident it Is worth

under the most auspicious circumstances,
with a confidence in success, an enthusiasm
for the cause, and a vigorous self reliance
that has noebecu experienced hi many years.
The late elections show conclusively that a
vast majorityof" the nation are ready to es
pouse our standard if we only prove faithful
to our creed, and continue to stand firmly by
the interests of the country.
But to. make victory certain something
more is necessary than mere dependence up
on the truth of our principles. In the flush
of self-confidence, we are apt to forget what
a vigilant enemy we have to overcome, and
what desperate measures he is apt to resort to
to attain his elids. Political battles, like those
of a more bbiody nature, depend for their re
sults more on the skill,cotimge, determination
and energy of thepon testing foes than upon the
sacredneks of their cause, or the convictions of
the participats. The Democracy of America

We must be thoroughly organized and pre-
pared for the campaign.' Eveiy man must
consider that he owes n peradiutl duly in the
matter, as indeed he does, for there is no one
so htimble, but he is in some waymore or les;
concerned in .the issues at stake. All the
districts must be canvassed, so that we may
know where it will be most advantageous to
employ our energies, The young men must
be encouraged to lend a helping hand. Those
who hare beeri led estray must be brought
'back to the fold, and Democratic arguments
placed in their reach, that they may know
the distinctive questions which divide par
ties, and no longer be misled by the wiles and
falsehoods of the Opposition.
What we have said before we now reiter
ate, and intend reiterating until we have
waked the Democracy up to a fill conscious

weapbn towards success is the oide distritat

Remarks or Judge Made. of Penna., at
the Nth of January Celebration ha
Washington City.
In response to the first and second toasts
of -the evening, viz ; "The Bth of January,
180 : An era in our national life worthy of
perpetual commemoration,"-and "The mem
ory of Andrew Jackson, a great general, a
greater statesman and magistrate," Judge
Black arose and said: .
modesty is a good deal shocked at being
called upon to speak on this occasion before
any else, except our greatly respected friend
and excellent chairman. I suppose, how
ever, that I am expected to say only the few
ivortis that are necessary to- start the bast of the evening. That is all I intend to
There is no day in the year, except the 4th
of July, that ought to he kept so sacredly as
the Bth of January. [Applause.] And, except
the Father of his Country, there is no name
known among men that is entitled to a high
er teverepee than that of Andrew Jackson.
[Applause.] I put Washington first because
the place he occupied in history, as the fore
most man of all this world, has never been
disputed. [Applause.] It was always ad ,
mined that he stood alone, without a peer
among mortals. Competition gave way be
fore the acknowledged greatness of his char
acter, and rivalry itself conceded the palm of
pre-eminent virtue. I know not what it
may be with others,tut his is a name which
I never was able to pronounce without' emo
flows of reapect and reverence which I have
no form of words to express.
But the reputation of Jackson has not been
so fortunate. His life was one long battle
with the enemies of constitutional freedom.
[Apphiuse.] They assailed him with every
species of slander, and even at this day the
foul birds that screamed around hint in his
lifetime, and others hatched in the same' bad
nest, light whenever they can upon his tomb
stone, to defile his gravel with their obscene
droppings. [Applause.t One of the most
injunous of these aspersions is that by which
theiladical party have attempted to make
him - authority for their own attempts to tram
ple upon liberty and law. [Great applause.]
If that be true; if fie is authority fur them;
if he has Set the exaniple for their miscon
duct; if they are traveling upon a path,
which has one impress of his footstep, 'then
he is wholly and. utterly -unworthy of the
honor which the American people all through
the country are bestowing upon him at this
moment. [Applause.] Then I give him up.
He is their man ; he is not ours. If General
Jackson ever did anything whirl an justify
the murder, kidnapping. and robbery of in
nocent men, women and children ; if he ever
naed military force for. the purpose of en
slaving any State, North or South, [ap
plause] ; if he ever expended one atom of his
powerful influence for the purpose of subju
gating his fellow citizens, or any portion of
them, to the dominion of a negro govern
ment, [cries of "good" and applause] ; if
there be one single act of his whole life
that can ,be cited as an example for the
coarse, cruel and corrupt despotism which
the Fbulicals.have • organized wherever- and
whenever they could, then be don't belong
to our communion. [Applause.] In that
case he is only tit to be set up in that heath
en Pagoda where such generals as Holt and
Baker [loud applause,] - and others of that
class are the divinities. where the worship
pers lay it down as part of their creed that
the Constitution is an agreement with hell
and a covenant with death : there the high
priests that minister at the altar have quali
fied themselves for holy orders by being hired
delators and perjured 'witnesses, where the
offerings consistof false affidavits against the
honor-and rights of innocent people.
_lSt this point a loud demand was made
that Judge - all. shohld come 'nearer to the
centre, of the room where all would be able
to hear him. This being complied with, be
said :
Gentlemen, Sir Walter Raleigh once said
that the greatest temptation , to which a man
could be subjected was the inclination to
speak when the people listened ; but it is nut
a very greaS temptation when they don't lis

Well, I will proceed. lam not here to pro
nounce any eulogy or to make any defence
of General Jackson, but I will refer to one
passage in his life upon 'which the slander to
which I have referred is based, if it be based
upon anything. ' When General Jackson un
dertook the defence of the city of New Or
leans in the full of 1814, be assumed a respon
sibility such as had rarely been taken by
anybody in . the world, and such as very few
'Zen except Mr:ISW would have taken under
such circumstances. The British army 'vas
44,000 strong; composed of veterans, y ably
commanded, thoroughly trained, and fresh
from the victorious battle fields of the Span
ish Peninsula. They had never known what
it was to be defeated. No hostile army of
equal strength had ever before landed in one
body upon the American shores. To meet
them General Jackson had half the number
of raw levies, hastily collected from the
plough and the work-shop, not organized
all of them imperfectly equipped, anti some
of them—a considerable number of them—
not armed at all. With these fearful, odds
against him, he was required to bold phsses
sion of an unwalled - and unfortitied town,
situated upon an open plain,accessible upon
every side, and with absolutely no defences,
natural or artificial, except what were to be
created upon the spur of the occasion, and
he fiat' not the assistance of one experienced
officer or engineer to aid him in putting up
his field works or mounting his guns. This
desperate game was to be played for a stake
of the most .stupendous magnitude. The
possession of the whole Nano' of the MissisL
stppi depended upon it: and if the city had'
been taken by assault, we shudder, even at
this distance of' time, to think what must
have' been its fate. The very troops that
were then marched to the attack had com
mitted the most atrocious cruelties only a few
months before, at Badajos and St. Sebastian;
and here again they were to be rewarded with
booty and beauty. The defence seemed like
a forlorn hope. No one had a particle of
confidence in its success except what wasiu
spired by the courage, genius and energy of
their great commander. But he was a host
in himself. They wisely determined that
they would throw the whole , responsibili
ty upon him ; that they would put their fate
entirely in his hands, and they did so.
Members of the Legislature, .officers of the
city Corporation - and judges of the Court
came and laid their powers at his feet, and
vol.unUtrily agreed that they would -suspend
their Okla! functions until- the danger was,
over. The Whole population, with one voice,'
besought trim that he would make the city a
part of his - camp, and take the ab4olute com
mand upon himself of every human, being
within its limits: this at the univer
sal request.. Ile had a nght to do it. 'twits
proper that he should do it, for this simple
and plain reason, that the city was in a state
'of actual siege. It was no fiction. Ilk uct
bore no kind of resemblance to the wanton
outrage of declaring martial law, which is no
law at all, for the mere purpose of trampling
down the law of the land at a place where
,there are no military operations going on.
(Great applaus'e.l- Jackson executed the au
thority thus bestowed upon him, not only
moderately, but benignly. He gathered the
people, around him and protected their rights
to the whole eitent that he was able to do•so
consistently with the proper defence of the
Place, as tenderly as a father would care for
his children. But he didn't allow himself to
be trifled with. A. gentleman named Lonal
tier, who had been a member of 'the Legisla
ture, became, in the course of time, discon
tented. Re was one of Gen. Jackson's sol-
dierg—that is, he had put himself under his
command as much as any volunteer in his
army. But he became restive, and, after a
while. he published an address, and printed
and circulated it over the city, In which he
counselled disobedience to the General's or
ders. That was simply mutiny, and the pun
ishment of mutinrwas death. But Jackson
only confined him, declaring at the time his
intention to release him' the very moment he
could do so with safety. Then came Judge
Hall, another of his voluntary subordinates.
He undertook to interfere with the discipline
-of Gen. Jackson's camp, by issuing a habeas
corpus for the body of the mutineer. The
General, in order to save all trouble, sent the
Judge four miles up the river, with directions
to remain outside of his picket lines until it
should be known that the enemy had retired
froth the coast.
When the great battle had been won, when
the invader had been driven away, when the
city was saved with all its beauty and booty,
then Judge Hall returned ; and as soon as he
got back he commenced a prosecution against
Gen. Jackson for—what do you think? Con
tempt of Court? The General thought this
very-absurd. Nevertheless, although he had
a victorious army at his back; although he
was surrounded by a population that adored
him as their great deliverer, he bowed his
head to the lawful authorities of the country
as lowly as the humblest man in the nation.
(Great applause.) He not only submitted to
the legal processwhich was issued against
hint, but he gave to the judges the assurance
that the saute arm which had defended the
city against a foreign invader would stand
between him and the danger of a popular
outbreak. (Applause.) He appeared before
the court and made a defence which was
worthy of his character as a lawyer, and per
fectly consistent with his high renown as a
statesman and a patriot He pleaded that he
was not and could not be guilty of any con
tempt of court, because that court had of its
own accord relinquished its authority during
the siege, and had notified him of the fact.
He said that even if his act had been illegal,
be had committed, not a contempt of court,
but a personal trespass against the judge, and
to this he was Willing to respond in a person
al action, before a court of competent juris
diction and an impartial jury. But he insist
ed that his adversary had no right to sit in
Inclement upon his own case. This defence
was overruled by the Judge, and it wasover
ruled in such manifest defiance of reason and
justice that the judge would have been tore
into pieces if Gen. Jackson had not redeem
ed his promise to protect him. But he - did.
When the judge faltered for fear of the in
dignation of. the crowd with which he was
surrounded, the General rose in the court and
said, "Go on and perform what you think
your duty." (Applause.) "I hare fought for
the liberties of this nation, and I will not
permit the .civil institutions of the country
to be dishonored." (Applause.) The judge
fined him a thousand dollars, and then his
friends crowded around him to pay the fine
for 'him; but he declined all such offers.
"No," said lir, "1 will not evade the decision
of the lawful tribunal. (Applause.) I willpav
this tine myself. It becomes me to suffer
whatever has been inflicted, rightfully or
wrongfully." He put himself perfectly
square with the law, even as Judge Hall had
expounded it.
Now, if Gen. Jackson had systematized
robbery and murder by means of military
commissions, (applause, and cries of "Good,)
instead of using his army tofight the com
mon enemy; he had scattered his soldiers
over the country, hundreds of miles away
from his post, to kidnap his political oppo
snents for expressing their honest convictions;
if he had ordered an upright and conscien
tions judge to he draeged from the bench by
ruffians, beaten upon the head with the butt'
ends of their pistols, and carried away to
prison, because he had administered justice
saccording to law ; and if, finally, he had es- )
tablished a military despotism upon the ruins
of free government, then I admit he would
have been fair authority for the Radicals,and
they might have quoted him as an example
of their misdeeds. But in truth and in fact,
Gen. Jackson was one of the ablest and best
defenders of the Constitution* and the laws.
There never lived a man who would go fur
ther-to sustain them, or more cheerfully shed
his blood to save them front violation. (Ap
There are some persons here, I think, who
not only know the character of Gen. Jackson,
but who were intimately acquainted with
him when he was President. I ask them
what they suppose Gen. Jackson would have
said to our "Bureau of Military Justice," if
such is bloody machine had been set up in his
time. (Great applause and laughter.) I do
not know ; I can only conjecture ; but I think
be would have shattered it into a thousand
atoms with one blow of his ponderous hand,

and generous nature would have been to take

I said that I had no eulogy or defence to
make of Gen. Jackson ; but I do say now, in
conclusion, that if the people of this country
will appreciate his character truly, and re
member well the lessons that his acts and his
precepts have taught them, they will have
such a Government as that which hedescribed
in his protest to the Senate—not a despotism
surrounded by the pride, pomp and circum
stances of military power; but a quiet Gov

and their rights—a Government distributing
