Mr. Prelinghuysen no Preacher.
The Democratic Union asserts that Mr. Fitsranct
surs to we's a preacher in his younger days, and
that like Parson Muhlenberg, he ceased to be a
fisher of men' to become a fisher for office—
Now this is as bare faced a lie as ever was penned
and the Editors of the Union knew it to be so when
they uttered it. Mr. FRELINCHIPTIEN has never
in the course of his life been a preacher of the
Gospel. He was born in Millstone, New Jersey.
in 1787—graduated at Princeton College in 1804
—studied law with the late Richard Stockton of
New Jersey, and teas admitted to practice in 1808
—being then just 21 years of age. He continued
to practice law until 1826, when he was elected to
a lest upon the bench of the Supreme Court of his
State, In 1829 he was chosen aU. S. Senator, for
New Jersey, which dignified position he filled for
six years with credit to himself and his native State.'
In 1839 he was selected to preside as Chancellor 1
over the University of the city of New York, which
station he now occupies. The attempt to institute
a comparison between the lives and character of
Messrs. Frelinghuysen and Muhlenberg is infamous
in the extreme. Mr. Frelinghuysen, although nev
er to his fife connected with the Church in a minis
terial capacity, has been a great and good man—a
Christian and philanthropist—dignifying the impor
tant offices which Ite has filled by a course of ex
emplary piety and steadiness of purpose. Mr.Muh
lenberg on the contrary, who in his youth solemnly
dedicated his life to the service of the church, instead
of growing more steadfast to the cause he had es
poused as he grew older, was tempted by the allure
meats of political aggrandizement, Judas like, to be
tray his master, and become a participant in the
corruptions of political intrigue. Instead of being ,
messenger of peace and good will towards men,
he has been a fire-brand in their midst. Instead of
being respected by his fellow citizens he is justly i
regarded with indignation and cont. mpt by a ma
jority of his own partizans, and with feelings of ab
horrence by all good men.—Pa. lolelligencer.
The Needle Women of London.
Frightful stories are told in some of the English
papers, as to the miserable condition of the females
in London, who earn their living by needle work,
It is affirmed that, in some instances, women work
for a farthing a shirt. Cases are also quoted, in
which one shilling and six pence only is paid for a
dozen pair, of stays, or three ha:l-pence for each
pair. "So fully aware," proceeds the account, "are
the slaves-drivers who employ the wretched beings
who work at stay-making they that cannot live
honestly upon such wages, that they do not entrust
them with the bones that are inserted in them.
This work is chiefly done in Woelwhich, Deptford,
and Portsmouth. As, in the tailoring trade, a swea
ter gives security for the safe return of the materials
sent from London, and that sweatcremploys hands
to whom he must pay less wages than three-half
pence for each pair of stays othervvise he would have
no profits. The hones are inserted in the ware
house here, as soon as the stays are returned. The
stock-makers are as badly paid, and their work is,
if possible, more severe, as the sticking must be dune
its the neatest manner, and with the greatest percision.
The makers of gentlemen's stocks reside for the
most part, in the vicinity of Wood street. They
are paid, not by the pieee, but by the week, and to
entitle themselves to be engaged, they must work
sixteen hours a day, and for these 16 hours hard
daily labour, they are only paid 4s. 6d. a week.
A sweater also contracts for this work, end employs
hands who roust labor during the sixteen hours for
reduced wages, in order that the sweater may have
some profit. The creatures who are engaged in
those two branches of fashionable and necessary at
tire, are generally females of tenderyears, who have
depending upon their exertions, perhaps, an aged,
enfeebled parent." This is indeed deplorable.
The Abolitionists are finding fault with Mr.
Frelinghuysen, because he holds an aged and infirm
woman as a slave. This woman belonged to his
father, and under the humane laws of New Jersey,
cannot be manumitted after attaining the age of

Mr. GEORGE MILLER of NlcAleavy's Fort, Bar
ree township, in this county, came to his (Instil last
week, in the following manner, as we are informed
by one of his neighbors. On Wednesday evening,
while returning from the Manor Hill military train
ing, on horseback, being intoxicated, ho was seen
asleep by some boys along the road-side, who, to
do him a kindness, attempted to atop his horse,
when the anima, suddenly jumped aside and threw
his rider, who fell on a stump, greatly injuring his
breast. He was picked up and conveyed to an ad
jacent house, where every necessary attention was
paid him until he was removed to his own home.
He lingered until the next evening about 6 o'clock,
when he died.
The deceased had joined a temperance society
nearly two years ago, and for some time abstained
from intoxicating liquors; but unfortunately, ho
broke his pledge, arid his fate has been as above
recorded. Whose work was that?
Texas, War, and the President.
We ask attention to the closing part of Mr. Old
school's letter, this morning, which reveals the fact
that Mr. Tyler has actually placed this nation in an
antagonist position towards Mexico—by ordering
troops on her frontiers, and stationing ships of war
at the mouth of hor ports, to intercept Mexican
ships, destined to Texas. The National lutelli
" We have not, of course had any opportunity of
examining these papers, but we learn orally that,
by a communication from the President yesterday,
the Senate was informed that he had ordered a
military force to repair to the frontier of Texas, to
open a communication with the President of that
Republic and act as circumstances might require;
and had also ordered a naval force to Vera Cruz, to
tannin off that port, and prevent any naval expe
dition of Mexico, if any such should be attempted,
from proceeding against Texas !
"'thus are the rumored " stipulations" with Tex
as, referred to in our preceeding remarks, confirm
ed, and the extraordinary fact rendered certain, that
the President has, on his solo authority, taken a
step equivalent to waging sudden and open war on
a friendly and unoffending nation. We have not
urns, at this late hour of the night, for further com
ment on so extraordinary a procedure."
This is, indeed, a new feature in the admintstra
thin of Mr. Tyler, and ono that, being developed,
roust startle the people. It is astoniehing how po•
tent for mischief may he a man who has little or
no capacity for good.—U. S. Gazelle.

Convention rose and said— , Gentlemen—Let me

Mr. Wsnirrsn then came forward on the plat
form and bowed before the innumerable multi
titude that filled the vast area below. The air
rang with cheers, long and prolonged. Hundreds
of banners were waved. The hate of the whole
assembly were oti, and were swung upwards and
around with energy that indicated the hearty joy of
the Whigs, in welcoming a long absent, but truly
beloved friend. When the cheering had subsided,
and silence was again restored—
Mr. WEBSTEII I said—l enjoy, gentlemen, quite
an unexpected but a sincere pleasure in finding my
self in the midst of the Whigs of the United States,
(Cheers and a profound sensation.) I came among
you for the single purpose of adding one snore
humble but devoted Whig to that Assembly, (re
newed cheers, with cries of "welcome," "wel
come,") and to join in swelling these tones of pub
lic sentiment, which, springing up from this multi
tude, and from the whole land, have found a voice
and an echo in the proceedings of the Nominating
Convention, (renewed and prolonged cheers; and
shouts for Clay, and hurrahs for Webster.) [The
audience front its anxiety in regard to the feelings
of Mr. Webster for lus supposed sisal, Mr. Clay,
broke out its tumultuous plaudits at this evidence of
concord and union.]
Gentlemen, we have assembled hero to perform
one of the most responsible and solemn duties that
can devolve upon freemen, or upon the citizens of
a great country in time of peace. We have assem
bled to take out from among us men as tandidates
for our highest offices, nay, the highest offices in
the gift of man; and to express opinions on grave
matters of Government declaratory of the course
we mark out for a President and Vice President of
these United States. In a period of. time marked
with unusual interest, in the presence of a future
that seems to be full of great events, we come here , 1
to select candidates, with whom we would trust our
Government, and who for four years in the admin
istration of that Government, can exercise the
greatest influence over the interests, the happiness,
and the honor of a whole country. [Sensation.)
Thus then I say, we came here to discharge a
duty the most responsible and most solemn, a free
People can have cast upon them in a time of peace.
Gentlemen of this assemble have left their homeri to
come here, from every walk in life,—men of the
highest patriotism, and the severest and most dis
tinguished virtues—men renewed in the Halls of
Legislation, on the highest branches of judica
ture, ornaments of all professions, venerable in age
and profound in learning; men too, from all the
members of this great confederation of States; and
after assembling in convention, they have submitted
to you the resultiftf their deliberation, to which
they have come with an unanimity almost unpar
alleled. (cheers.) They have presented td our
consideration, and to the consideration of the coun
try a candidate for President, whose name is to form
one, the sole, the single, the mu, rallying point of
all good Whigs of the United States. [Tremen
dous and prolonged cheering.] I address you then
who are here, and with a4ope that you will thus
address others, to ask you how is it, by what means,
under what auspices, you intend togbring about n it
successful election, and while view to impress upot
you the duty of using means, let me meld y
that when our fathers began the struggle to radii
the independence of the country, tl old the
world as a pledge of their firmness, andWpresage
to their intent, " Our cause is jt*O e ur Union
is perflet." We too have a du Minn less
danterous and less glorious than our fifthers had, it
is true. We are not bom to create a country, to
erect a cowtitution, to frame a'government, to start
in motion, or to spread the light of liberty over the
earth as they were, but we are born to, and we must
preserve, and protect, and transmit undishonored.
,umimpaired, untouched the heritage they have left
us. [Cheers and cries of we will,' we
In the discharge of our duties to our country;there
fore we must borrow not only their patriotism and
their devotion, but we may adopt their language,
and let the cry go forth from the Gulf of Mexico
to the Falls of St. Anthony,--from the rivers of the
west to the shores of the ocean, with a tone and
vigor, and energy, the world will hear--" Oun
CAUSE 18 JUST; Urn UrtioN as ' , curse.," [Tre
mendous and prolonged cheering, and exclamations
in the crowds as hats waved in the air, " Our cause
is just, our Union is perfect."]
Gentlemen, [continued Mr. Webster] the Con
vention has proposed Henry Clay, of Kentucky,
for your suffrages. [Cheat cheering for Clay.]—
For thirty years and more, he has been pro t
and eminent in the public service. He has s
his country faithfully and honorably, both at me
and abroad,—[great attention here.] 'l' ' ng
career of public service, this eminence
country marked him out as a truth most fit e
trusted with the administration of the Gove ent
of the country, and to command the suffrages df his
fellow countrymen. There were other indicaiions
of public sentiments, that ho of all the rest was the
man, and the only man upon whom they, whose
principles were in unison with his, should now
unite. And these clear indications, I for ono, with
the truest sincerity, can any I heartily rejoice
[cheering wills great difficulty reatrainetll—rejoice
that there is not a dissenting nor a doubtful voice to
break the unanimity of the nomination. [Here
there was a tumultuous outbreak of cheers, and
hurrahs for Clay and Webster, Webster and Clay,
kept up for some minutes.]
It is true, gentlemen, [Mr. Webster continued, as
silence was restored]—it is true that in a public life
not short, I have differed with Mr. Clay in regard to
matters pertaining to the practical administration of
the Government. There have been occasions when
we have taken different views of what it was our
duty to do. Few men can live long together and
see things Ake. But, whenever, we have differed
we have differed, I am sure, on my part, as I believe
on his, with equal conscientiousness and mutual
respect. (Cheers.) I know of no great constitu
tional question on which we differ. I know of no
leading interest in the country. Still less and what
is often of more importance for our peace, if not our
prospenty—still less do I know of any different
views entertained of our public relations between
that distinguished leader of the Whig party and
myself. If this were not so, under present circum
stances, it would become me from the personal re
spect I feel for him, which is sincere and deep, from
the high regard I have for his public worth and pri
vate character to stand by him. Nay, more, he is
a Whig, and I too am a Whig, (suppressed cheers,
and cries of hush, hush,)--the selected man of the
Whig party, of which I am part and parcel. (Loud
cheering that drowned the voice of the speaker. A
voice from below cried out here, ,4 yes, Daniel, you
shall he the next President, you shall follow after,"
which seemed to embarrss the Speaker.) And with
regard to the part I am to act, gentlemen, in this
contest before us, there shall be no more doubt of
my disposition than my duty. (Loud, long and I
The same Convention, gentlemen, has presented
for the second office of the Government, another
gentleman, not with the unanimity of the first se
lection, for It was not to be expected that any now
name would at first command that universality of
assent, which the name for the first office had.—
Several worthy and good men were before the Con
vention. Each had his friends. Among them all
a selection has been made, in regard to which, I
may say, a wiser and a better one could not have
been made. A man of purer character, of soberer
temperament, or of more accomplished manners,
firmer, more unflinching, more unbending, the
Whig Party could not have found than Theodore
Frelinghuysen. [Cheers.] I have long known
him well. I have served with him much in public
I life, and such is his purity of life, and case of man
ner, that lie has a strong hold on the love, the affec
tion, and personal attachment of all who know him.
[Cheers.] The State of New Jersey, who has pre
sented him as her son, needs no encomium from us.
Her character, her achievements, past and recent,
her history, her revolutionary services, her suffer
ings, we all know. Tho patriotic dust of her dead
on the soil of Princeton, Trenton, and Monmouth,
can never be forgotten. [Loud cheering.] SOMO
of us have heard from our father's lips, how in
scenes of deepest gloom, her little army of Whigs
supported and stayed the hand of. Washington
against the army of the enemy—how her plains
and hills wore traversed by American soldiers, track
ing their paths with blood front their wounded feet—
[cheers]—how that whole population—all Whigs ;
administered all they had, their food, their raiment,
and their blessing when all else was given. [Loud
cheers.] And if an occasion has now come, ren
dering it proper, I am sure, every person present
will derive a gratification in remembering New Jer
sey-[prolonged cheering]—in remembering a pa
triotic and gallant State so as to pay her a mark of
respectin offering her distinguished son the second
office of the Government, [Continued cheers for I
New Jersey and Frelinghuysen.]
Gentlemen, continued Mr. Webster, the duty be
fore us andVther Whigs of the country is to restore
that ascondafi'cy of constitutional government which
circumstances have taken away froth' us—to re-es
tablish Whig principles and Whig measures—to
re-affirm the sentiments acted upon in 1810, to do
that milk over again, and to do it now, God will
ing, as that it will hold. [Spoken with emphasis
and followed by tremendous cheers.] The present
circumstances ofte country, its public prosperity,
the general Atite‘ment and happiness of the Pee
-1 pie in their business employments, show that much
good has been done by the revolution in 1840.
Our duty now is to hold OR to what is good, and
to obtain as much more as wo can—[a laugh]—to
achieve as far forth as we can, the general prosperi
ty of the country, and to establish on 0001 C fixed,
I som° settled basis, the great interests of the People.
Nothing is more ruinous to a country, gentlenien,
than a policy always uncertain, ever vascilluting.—
It will be our duty, I take it, to impress upon the
legislation of the country, durability, strength,
something upon which the hard hand and willing
heart of Labor can rely,---Something, too, that will
tempt to labor, and mince labor sure of what itearns,
—something that will stand : and thus by the crea
tion and consummation of Whig measures and
Whig principles, to carry out what we once before
fairly won. [Cheers.]
There are two views I take of our position now.
Mr. Clay will be our neat President, if we discharge
our duty, and our whole duty in addressing, or
arousing the people. And, if we do not, then Mr.
Van Buren will be, for I take it for granted that ho
is to be the opponent of Mr. Clay. [Cries from
below, " No, never ; Van Buren never can be Pre
sident again."] You observe continued Mr. Web
ster, I qualify, by the remark—that if we desert our
duty, if we abandon the defence of our principles
and our Candidate. Mr. Clay, we know, (emphat
ically.) His venoml character, the general course
of his measures, his policy, his manners, his habits
are all pledges of what he will be. We shall un
derstand lilies, [great cheering,] when he is right,
we shall see in what ho is right, and if wrong, in
what his error consists.
Of Van Buren I would not speak with disre
spect, nay I would speak with that respect duo to
him for the high offices he has held, and the high
estimation in which he is held by a large portion of
his countrymen—and I do not think I trespass upon
decorum, whe I say that he has not made that pro
ficiency i the klnglish tongue—[a laugh]
—he has its shades and degrees of ex
pression—lie t comprehended its phrases,
positive, negativ , r equivocal—[renewed laughter]
—so as to enable my poor understanding always to
be sure, or ever to"be sure, that I know what he
means when he holds intercourse with the public.
[Great outbreak of laughter and cheers.] I hope it
will not be deemed disrespectful in my suggesting
that the distinguished gentleman might save him
self a world of trouble, and the world, sotto voce, a
world of reading, (renewed laughter,] if he would
adopt some short, settled, formula of answering
questions, [continued laughing.] When two men
meet in th , Street, or on the road, the first question
put is—" how do you do ?"—the answer is--"prct
ty well, much ns usual, how are you?" If the sal
utstion be in my country, the answer is:—" Oh, I
don't know, I thank ye, pretty much as usual."
[Laughter.] Now, it strikes me, that if, in the
correspondence of Mr. Van Buren, this Yankee
phrase was adopted, it would be a great labor sa
ving phrase, for when new questions were put him,
he could answer—" Oh, I don't know, pretty well,
I thank ye, pretty much as usual." [Cheering,
and loud outbreaks of laughter, mingled with hur
rahs for some time prolonged.]
I never could agree, gentlemen, to that maxim of
In forms of government, let poets contest,
Whatever is best administered iti best."
I know,--we all know that under certain forms
of Government, men are more likely to enjoy hap
piness, and to be able to protect their own interests.
There are certain forms of Government, too, into
the elements of which enter a deeper and a larger
regard for the public sentiment. But, in disputing
as the forms of Government, there is one great, one
important truth, men aro apt to overlook, and that
is, no form of Government, however pleasing in
theory, however hitherto successful in practice, can
work out the good of the people governed, tinder a
bad administration of that Government. Govern
ment is not a mere piece of mechanism, that needs
but to be wound up right, to go right forever. It
is not a cotton jenny --but a moral process, calling
for good intentions, for honesty, for good conduct.
A constitution of government is essential to guide
public sentiment, as a compass or the stars, or the
sun and the moon are essential for the navigator, or
as the light hotises extending over thousands of
miles of coast; but neither the compass, nor the
stars, nor the light, nor the light houses, on every
promontory, will avail, unless there be a regular
bred seaman at the helm:
So in political affai a ;s - , or in constitution of Gov
ernment, there may be prohibitions or restraints, but
if we have at the helm a man who will not see the
light of heaven, who pays no regard to the compass,
or the chart, no matter how magnificent the vessel
his power is over, she must be shipwrecked, not
withstanding all this. [Cheers, and cries of .good.l
Therefore, it is a duty incumbent on every genera
tion, on all men, to act with vigilance, nay, I may
say, with jealousy, for jealousy is often a virtue in
a republican form of Government. It is the duty
of the citizen to observe every thing, or have every
thing observed. It is the price of his citizenship,
the cost of his privileges,—and it is a duty that can
not be put on, or put off. I don't deem it too much
to say, then, that as to this country, there is thus a
duty in this guardianship, an obligation imperative
upon us, which cannot be shaken otl; and demand
ing self-sacrifices, according to our profession of
principles, and the name we bear. We call our
selves Whigs, and we cherish the name of Whig.
Who are our ancestors? I see some of them here
before me, bearing on their chests the badges of
1776. Whigs they are now. Whigs they were
then. Companions of Washington, the link that
connects our generation with him. [Cheers.]
We bear a name, then, of lofty renown—a re
nown that must never be sullied—aname won amid
wounds, and scars and blood, denoting great and
self-sacrificing patriotism, and enrolling upon its re
cord the highest characters that emblazon our histo
ry. It belongs to us, then, if true to ourselves, ten
derly to guard and to cherish the honor of such a
name, and to remember with it the spirit there is
attached to it. Our destiny now cannot be dissev
ered from it. And while nothing should be done
to frighten us from our propriety, nothing should
lead us to give up one of the principles that belong
to it. Ours it is to preserve the Constitution our
Whig fore-fiithers bequeathed us, to uphold its prin.
ciples, to carry out its measures, to act upon its in
junctions, to see that honest and able hands adminis
ter it: to take care that while it is intrusted to our
guardianship, it suffers nothing of disgrace from the
way we watch over it. And let us so conduct our
elves, and so educate those who come after us, and
leave children, that if there be a wreck of that no
ble structure, the greateit work of the world, there
shall be no record that shall be found to ascribe that
catastrophe to Whig violdnee, Whig misrule, or
