power in ttio Executive is destruction. The proposition that any power can bo exercised independent, of that political control which nccordiiit? to our tlicory is vested in the people, would lend to tiio annihilation of ' .1 . .1 i ni. t ,,! il. Oil pOWOr 111 lliu ijcuiiiv:, i iiu iuu)iiuuuu iiiu "ovornm't cannot become antagonists in the rightful exercise of political authority, and whenever this if the case a revolution has already commenced which must end in the destruction of one or the other, utile.-. Hip evil bo timely removed. It matters little whether the power be important or not, the question is as to the right to exercise- it. On this principlo the tea tax was resisted, and on this principle wo should act now. It is in the nature of power that it should bo stealing from the many to the few. Ilenco in a government like ours power naturally tends to concentration in tlio exc cutivc, and etcrm-l vigilance is required to protect it in its purity in the hand of the rightful owners. During the early admin istrations it was supposed the pcoplo were thosourco of danger, that tho power or the Executive was not sufficient to withstand them, and that it was necessary to strength cn his hands. This formed tho crcat point of contest between the parties of those days, but this doctrine was exploded in tho as cendancy of Mr. Jefferson. Since his day the question has assumed a ntw shape and Hie great desideratum now is to guard the right of tho people front tho assaults of the Executive and prevent the consolida tion of power in the head of the government. This is the rock on which all previous gov ernments called free have been broken, anil the one on which ours will be Jashcd when ruin comes. , The enquiry for us to mnko is whether the people and the Executive maintain the relative position warranted by the conslitu tion, and if not, which is in danger, nnd what iB the source ol the danger. Expe rience has demonstrated that the Executive is not, and with tho patronage in his hands never can be in the least possible danger. The two Houses oi Congress may oppose his views and refuse their assent to his plans.but in all offensive operations they arc powerless. So also is the judiciary, nnd ho are the people, if then danger ever arises it will be in the advance of ilie Executive to powers not delegated. Without inquiring as to the past, how is it probable that Exec ntivc usurpation would show itcelf, not in open arsaults upon t lie other branches, for this would be seen and resisted, not in direct nttneks upon the people, but by gaining an ascendency over the people and by Using the other branches of government as instru. ments in hi hands. The pontile have no object in becoming the instruments of Ex ecutive usurpation, but the history of tho world shows that it has been done ogam and again. It was thus in tho ancient re publics, it was thus in Cromwell's time, in the French revolution, it has been thus in all governments before us, and the example ought not to be lost upon us. Their fate should teach us that improper confidence is dangerous, that jealousy is a republican virtue, nnd that any exercise of authority beyond the defined limits of the constitution is despotism. This is the charge that the "Whigs bring against the adinini-traiion.and the history of the lost nine years the evi dence on which they rely. It is not so much, that uny particular act of the gov ernment, amounts to usurpation, as that tho general course tends to consolidation. Our government, ns all know is divided into throe branches, and any attempt on tin, nnrt nf iinn tn Mmit the authority of either of tho others is usurpation. Now let us suppose that the judiciary attempt to make a law, and the indignation of the peo. pic would be nppaling. Hut an attempt on the part of tho judiciary is no more to be condemned than that of the Executive, and yet we know that Mr. Van Huron in his first public message attempted to control the free action of the legislative department. His notice that be would veto certain bills, was either to intimidate Congress or to show that ho disregarded their authority nnd wished to degrade them before- the na tion. This act has not received the reprn. bation it deserved, it was an attempt on tho part of one branch of the government to become independent of the others. It was a virtual declaration that the co-ordin jite branches of government should be dis regarded, and this is usurpation, lit matters not mat no uennitu um ns mnni mis declaration, of this wo cannot certainly indue, it is the principlo on which the dec laration was made that is objectionable, the essertion of a power not delegated by the constitution. To form a correct idea of the character of the administration wo arc not so much to examine particular acts, as to group the whole together and learn the result of their combined action. And what is tho result to which tho measures of tho last nine years have conducted us. To a more lim ited prosperity, and to a comparative bonk ruptcy. Our agriculture has not been less productive, for the smiles of providence have not been withheld, but the markets have been destroyed. Some have tho wool of three yeors now on hand, und all have eold at reduced prices. Commerce tins been reduced so that many a goodly ship lies rottintr nt tho wharf.' Tho mechanic and tho manufacturer have suffered with the rc6t, thousands being out of employ ment. This is not an accidental state of things, nor is it owing to any providential calamity. We have been at peace with the world, alwoys excepting a wanton war upon the miscalled savages. Notwith standing all this our national expenses have been increased to on alarming extent, and government is now the only corporation that issues paper not payable on demand. From a treasury literally groaning under tho wcilit of its burthen, wo arc now issu- inc millions of treasury notes payable on long time. The government have stooped to solicit Mr Bukllc m anticipate the pny mcnt of his bond. Considering tho Ian cuage used toward this gentleman, this act of the government is sufficiently humiliating. The business of the countrv has been crip pled by the war of ihu government on that crcat instrument of business, the currency, and properly has lobt iis relative value or becomo unsaleable, u s now openly do. clared that tho busincbs ol tho government must bo separated from that of tho noonlo. thus arraying tho one against tho other in hostile attitude. This is the avowed object v of tho sub-Treasury scheme and to this they adhcro though condemned by their own nartizani in Congress. 'Tia tho last plank of tho wreck on which they cling fori safety. This sub-Treasury schema is n now in vention, unknown to such men as Jefferson and Madison. In their opinions tho gov ernment cnnnalod from the people, was of them nnd for them. It was lelt lor Ken dall, Blair and Van Buren, to discover this scheme. It mado its appearance with Brandroth's Pills, and is about as much lauded, It is impossible to dicuss I he sub Treasury scheme seriously, it has no seri ous uiorils. Has any sensible benefit to the people ever been pointed out as tho re sult of this measure? Can nuy bo pointed out ? There is one cfiect that is so obvious that it might to excite alarm, it increases the power of the Executive, it gives him command over tho purse of tho nation. It is for this that tho government arc so in tent to carry this measure. Among tho sttaogo events of tho day, the extraordinary position of Mr. Colhutin may bo mentioned as growing out of this subtreasury scheme, having on important bearing on the business of tho north, and it may be, having an effect upon our liberties With Mr. Calhoun s previous views in re lation to the currency and tho banks, with his expressed opinions of the administra tion, its extravagance, its abuses of patron ace, and false principles of government, ho could not be expected to form o coalition with them without sotno great object in view. Tliat obicct was to cripple tlio ousi ncss of tho north and when wo call to mind the superior political power that we have acceded to t lie south, the subject as sumcs a threatening appearance. Why is it that Mr. Van Buren courts tho south is so willing to favor their peculiar institutions that he protlers his services to veto bills in their favor, even at the expense of human liberty? Docs ho wish to decrease their political ascendency? Docs ho wish to array ono part ngainst another ? Tho plain English of all this is, he is anxious to obtain a second election ; for 'his purpose he is courting the south, favors their projects, throws himself into their arms and they, in return, favor his sub treasury scheme: and both hove the same object in view, to cripple tho business of the north, destroy our political power and then maintain their own ascendancy Good men ought to n 1 In y spclirnal jealousies rather than inflame them; but we cannot avoid seeing that tlio south consider their interests as in some measure opposed to ours. They do not re gard the sub treasury scheme for any bono fit it will be to them, but rather for its effect upon us. It is important that north em men should see things in their true light, that while they regard the interests of all, they should defend their own rights. A reasonable jealousy of executive power is always laudable ; but when wo see cvi dent strides towards consolidation, resist ance becomes a virtue that resistance warranted bv the constitution the resist ance of the ballot box.

The president's son going over to tho Royal Coronation and feasting with Princes nnd Dukes ! This is democracy with a vengeance. From the Albany Evening Journal. QUESTIONS OUT OF A POLITICAL CATECHISM. Question. Pray, eir, what politics do you proless ? Jlnsicer. Sir, I ntn a democrat. Q. In what docs your democracy con sist ? A. To bo "all things at times to all men." To advocate the establishment and utility ol a national hank in 1010, and to repudiate il in 11!2U. To oppose a sub Treasury in 1834. and lo laud it to the skies in IU37. To advocnte tho democra cy of AugiM and September, 1037, as then declared and expounded by the Albany nnd Now York republican committees, and to advocate what it was declorod and ex pounded to bo by tho republican commit tees in December, 1 037. after tho Locofo lbs (which were till then te tail end if all turtles, as pronounced by the ulobe and Arnns,) were admitted lulo our ranks. (.). hat, l be n, is your uetinition ol a Locofoco ? A. Tho present definition is equivalent to democrat. Before this was found out by Van Buren to bo the case, we called them Agrarians, Fanny Wrighl-mcn, Infidels Radicals, Flour-barrel parly, &c; hut Mr Ming and Mr. Slanmi, and their associates, satisfied Mr. Van Buren thf.y were tho truo Democratic party, and, therefore, the Con. servativcs were turned out ot the parly Q. What do you mean by Conservatives? Jl. I nienn a parly that supported Van Bnrcn for President, through thick ond thin, and afterwards would not obey his or. ders to support the sub-Treasury system. (J. What do you mean by the sub Treasury system? Jl. 1 menu a system that would concen tralo the whole money power with the sword, in llio bands ol tho Executive, and ruin all tho banks a power that would enable tho Executive lo accumulate patron age and power to on extent that would per netiiato him and us in office. , fi. 1 thought mat llie Constitution nave Congress the power of rcguhiiiifr the Treasury r A, So it did according lo its ancient construction, but wo have lound a shorter way, that is, "to construe the Con-titution ns we understand it." And surely tho par ty can only understand it in Mich a manner as it shall answer nest iiteuoou oi ittenartv. Abk Mr. Buller the former, I menu the present Attorney Genoral of tho United Mates t7 September whether tins is not mo truo uetinition i ami lur. uu'ierisccr lainly the best expounder of constitutional law we liavo ever had in tho country. Q. Is then tho Constitution to bo so construed as to subserve only (he interests ol llie puny? A. Certainly. Q, Has not tlio country at largo eoiuc thing In 6uy about this affair? A. The country at largo has nulhing to ,do willi it. Wc, the democracy, arc the country in its propet and legitimate sense. Q. In what dictionary do you find your definition? A, In no dictionary. Wo want no such trafli ns Webster's, Walker's, or Johnson's dictionaries. They were all rank aristo crals, and that is enough for the true de mocracy. Q. Do you hold to the doctrine that the democracy if numbers, nr. as H. Ulecckor quaintly calls it, King numbers, is tho true test in a republican country as to what the People want nnd ought to have? A. It was once tho doctrine when our party was in the majority, but it bus been sinca exploded. Q, Why so? A. Why because because it is rather now an inconvenient doctrine. Q. Please explain ? Jl. Well, if the truth must out, we have lost already twenty States in the re cent elections, and wo arc confoundedly afraid that we shall soon losu tho remaining six. Wo now incline to tho opinion that the "minority of numbers" should govern. Q. Do you consider a President's orders and opinions to he always definitive and conclusive upon the party? A. Certainly j so long as he professes our democracy. Q. What do you consider the Bible of your democracy ? A, Tho Globe ond Argus. Q. Do you believe all they say ? Jl. Certainly. Q. But when they contradict them selves, how do you then manage? Jl. We toko their last assertions to be the true democracy. Wo follow, in this, the Revised Statutes, (and remember Mr Butler was one of tho rcvisors.) "the last clause, or section, shall prevail." Q, Good dny, sir ; I may ask you, per. hops, at another time, a few ir.ore ques tions. Jl. I shall answer them with great pleasure. Q CALEDONIAN COUNTY.

I wo years aro quite enough to have been i subjected to its leathn influence. The People arc determined to have no more of it. Last year a sptrilcd rally was made in several towns a small majority was trivcn to tho Whig State ticket and tho Whig1 Senatorial ticket would have succeeded hud it not been for an untoward occurrence a lew weeks previous to the election, which greatly perplexed and embarrassed our friends and afforded full scope for the in trigues of our opponents. No man ac qtiainled with the circumstances doubts that the result was controlled by that event. It has a hundred times been distinctly admitted by Van Buren men best acquaint ed with the circumstances that they owe their narrow escape to the occurrence allu (led to. There is nothing now in the way of bringing up the Whig Phalanx to a solid body. The note of preparation was early sounded our clans have been sometime gathering the genuine spirit of '7G which has achieved such wonders in other States H nhrond among us. There is not a Whig with whom wc have conversed that enter. tains any doubt of a successful result. Caledonian, TiiEr.r.r.n and Southuklani). Tho Montreal Courier of Tucsdny, says "A report was pretty current yesterday that Lord Durham has received instructions by the Great Western, to order the execution of Southcrland and Thcllcr." Tins is in deed painful intelligence, and wo would fain believe there is some mistake aboul it. We learn from the Toronto corrcspon-' donee of the Commercial Advertiser that sixteen of the state prisoners wero on Sal urday last sentenced to death; four arc Americans and twelve subjects of the Queen. "I was favored," says the correspondent. "with a very eligible heat, and I was stir- prised to find so many of the prisoners very y mug men-some of them lili-ie boyB and ivvii n iiiiuu iuiihl'u niurt: uuturving tne ordinary chastisement of a parent, than the heavv penally about to he adjudged thein Two or three wero handsome, and with n few exceptions, nothing unfavorable could be drawn from their appearance. They were all well dressed. After the crier had made proclamation for "all persons to keep silenco while his lordship tho queen's justice pronounced the sentence of death," Mr Justice Jones called over the names of four American citizens, who had been tried under the act of the lasl session ofiho provincial parliament. The (irst was Linus Wilson Miller. After a brief recapitulation of tho evidence, he atdted whether ho had any thing to say why sentence of de.ath should not now bo pro. nounced on him. After pausing a few mo ments, he spoke. The statute iiuilor which ho had been tried ho contended was unconstitutional, as it had not received tho sanction of the Sov ereign. He pleaded his youth and inexpe rience, and Ins desire, when ho became sensible of his error, to return home. He had not, ho said, been guilty of tho death of any one, and ho stood convicted on tho ev idence of a man who had become his accu ser to save his own life. After a short reply by the Court in an swer to objections raised by Miller, Mr Justice Jones ordered Linus Wilson Miller, Gcorgo Coolcy, Norman Mallory and Win. Reynolds to be executed on Saturday the 'J5th i nst. Mr. Solicitor General Draper then moved the court that sentenced be passed on the following persons, convicted ot'hightrpason: Samuel Chandler, Benjamin Wait, James (iambic, John dram, Murdoci: Mcl'atlon, John JamcB McNuliy, George Buck, Da vid Taylor, James Wagoner. Gairot Van Camp, John Vernon, nnd Alexander J)lc Leod, After llio ubuoI question had been put to them why sentence should not ho pus sod, tho Court pronounced the following kcutenco upon them all. "That you and each of you bo taken to lhc jail from whence you came, and that on the 25th dny of the present month of August, you and each ol vnu ho a niton on a hurdle to the place nf execution, and that you be there hanged by the neck until you arc dead; then your bodies arc to be quar tered, and may God have mercy on your souls."

We are torn by intestine factions nil busiimsi id at n stnnd our finances are exhausted, our credit beggared, our country covered with soldiers, our jails full of pris oners, and our taverns of militia men ; our magistrates aro partisans, our mechanics red hot politicians, and more treasure is spent and spending over us than wo arc worth or ever shall be.
