Van Buren Democrat' Balsa the fi,vour of
' yott &ink him, through your columns, to express
his disapprobation to again of the ticket formed by
the democratlceounty delegation, on Tuesday the dth
init. I allude; Sir; to the renomination of Col. James
1 . Woodburn for thelegislature--=a man,whe hail been
a member a part of a session and two full sessions al
-1 ready, without ',possessing. a, single ntialificatton for
a legislator; except that he can say yea or nay as the
ease may be. Col. Woodburn 'is a' most miserable
scholar: he cannot conneerthree simplosentences to
gether, icarrectly, for the life_of hinu.lie•cannot. spell
'note than one•word out of five, . if he was to he shot.
fOr it,ae his letters will fully prcive;- and-he ire man
of little or no reading, as his conversation abundantly
shows, his mind being a perfect 'barren waste.' He
neither displayed judgment nor coneisteney in his le.'
gislativecareer,, having at one session voted for the
mammoth, improvement bill and the Chartering of va
rious batiks, and at the next pursued a quite. contraxy
course, thereby showing that he had no opinion of his
own, antithat he'vras a 'nose of .wax' for others
to mould just to suit their purpose!). These are such
palpable facts, that none of his friends dare deny thera
fora vooment, because the journals of the house_
. will
satisfy any man of their correctness. And _Was knot
this xig-rorcourse of - Col. Woodburn in.,The legis
