v i i n a v mmdvivi! KNlllllV ni h UI I) A Y MUltMMI, J A MM II i 81. vor ntusiur.NT, WM. HENRY HARRISON VICE rncsimiNT. JOHN TYLER. fjtWo have copied into another col umn an interesting discussion in tho .Sen ate between Messrs. Ci.av and Camiou.v, on the subject of tlio currency, tho pub lic lands, and the tarilV. Mr. Calhoun ' having recently become tho mouth-piece of the administration in tlio Senate, more than usual importance attaches to what fulls from his lips at the present moment, nnd as the discussion piotty fairly indicates the present position of tlio two parties in reference to the great interests of tho country, we would ask for it the careful attention of every reader. On such a division, how many rclioeting men at the north can be found loside with Mr. Cal houn nnd an administration pledged to such principles? No man need be de ceived on this point. Mr. Calhoun has not joined tho administration without a pledge in consideration ; and if Mr. Van Buren should unfortunately ho again elect ed to tho Presidency, the government will most assuredly be administered on the principles hero shadowed forth by Mr. Calhoun. We repeat, it is in the bond. Let the people ponder well these things ; for there is more at issue in the coining contest than mrjets the eye. THE PUBLIC LANDS. We have frequently brought the sub ject of tho public lands before our readers for the purpose of showing them, that in addition to the plan of frittering them away to squatters, under pre-emption laws, and to speculators under laws to reduce and graduate tho price, there is a fixed determination among the political specu lators in the new states, as soon as their numbers will enable them to carry their plans into effect, to lay hands upon all the landstlmt lie within their respective limits, and appropriate them to their own use. More clearly to illustrate this point, we will refer to tho open declarations in Congress two years since. During the session of Congress in 1S"7, the Honora ble Mr. Sovier, a senator from Arktmau?., in the course of a speech in the Senate, among other things, said, " The people of " the West wanted the control of the " lands within their own limits, and with " nothing short of this, coMd they ever " rest content." The 1 Ionorable Mr Bon ton, a senator from Missouri, and the most active and inilueiitial member of the administration party, in reply to Mr. Se vier, said, that " We were now within " less than three years of tlio period for " taking a new census, and after that time " tho state of Arkansas would en joy three " or four times her present weight in the " councils of tho nation. By that time we " should probably have three new stales, " two on tho Mississippi, and one on the ' Gulf of Mexico, while the roprosenta 14 tion of the new states already in tho " Union would bo sreathi enlarged. If "tho senator from Arkansas would but " restrain his impatience until that period " shall arrive, the West would settle this " question of the public lands just as it "llcascd: They will settle this matter " as thoy would settle the Presidency ; "and the older slates must look to them "for both. He was not going to surren " dor advantages like these for thirty " years to come, for tho sake of the pro position now advanced. Ho who had "introduced this measure, ho who had "originated it, ho who had fought it up, " was not going to bo forestalled by any "thirty years bargain. In three years " more they would write their own terms " and lay them on the table of the Senate. " They would be mi for, and m' " bid for, by every candidate for the " l'rcsidcncii." To these remarks ho added, " In this great measure ol oxtiu " guishing the federal title to tho laud in " tho now states, he had never doubted of I "eventual success. Ho could no nioro " doubt of this, than any future event "which depended on natural causes or " causes as fixed as nature herself, viz. " on tho increase of population in tho " West. Thuse states must, in a very " short time, obtain a preponderance in " the national councils." After those declarations of two mem bers of tho Scnato of the United States, roado in open public debate, can thopco- )lo of tlio old States remain quiet itntl at ' . .. jase with regard to tlieir interest in tins t , ease . . I gm,t national property Will tliev sit quietly by alltl SI this j J i 1 I'icll llllioritanro tlltlS COrrtiptlV squander- ..1 i it .,,,.,1,1,, dm nnu .f.if(.to "settle tlio od, to oiiablo thu new states to si tut, mo presidency." Already have tliey " writ ton tlieir own terms and laid them upon the table of the Senate," and already have they been "deeply bid for," by at least ono "candidate for tho Presidency." Mr. Van Huron has acceded to the demand and accordingly Mr. Calhoun has inlro- introduced a bill into the Senate to cede these lands to the now stales, agreeably to the "bid." The question is now fairly and tangibly before tho people. The object is openly avowed tlio machinery is already in motion ami is there any reason to believe that a party whose lead ers thus uiiblushinglyjW7crt(M thcr sys tem of plunder and robbery for it is nothing else will hesitate to carry it into full execution? The public domain, now the common property of tho Slates, amounts to about one thousand millions of acres, and if distributed per capita among the people, would give to every man, teaman, and child, including the slaves, near one hun dred acres each ; or, if you please, the poor man in Vermont with a family of ten children is at this moment honestly entitled to, and in fact the real proprietor of, one thousand acres of this land which strange to say, ho is asked to surrender, as the price of Mr. Van 5tircn's " DID" for tho presidency. Is thtjro an intelli gent man, in Vermont, who will for one moment listen to this corrupt proposition 1 Is there a parent who dare aflix his seal to such a bond? If there he, lot him fend oil", for we pronounce him " worse than an infidel." Mr. Calhoun's bill proposes to surren der that portion of the lands lying within the States and Territories, amounting to something over COO,()UO,()00 of acres, or about ono third of tho whole domain, and and that by far the most valuable part. What say you aye, or no 1 The time lias come for every man to have an opin ion on this subject, and to express it, in way to make himself heard and fell, Tho Sub-treasury bill passed the Sen ate on tho 2M, by a vote of 2-i to VS.

Ve were not mistaken in saying that the Express and Sentinel would continue to reiterate the " infamous falsehood," in regard to Mr. Webster's opinion of Gen. Harrison. Tho Express continues the malignant slander at the head of its columns without even alluding to Mr Webster's disavowal at Boston, while the Sentinel, as usual in such an emergency, keeps mum. To say nothing of what is honorable, we would ask, is such a course honest ? to assert and re-assert a llagrant falsehood, and then refuse even to notice tho correction. How much reliance can a man who seeks for truth, place upon information derived from such a source? We again copy Mr. Webster's avowal at Boston, on the 10th inst., as reported by every press in that city, and not gainsaid by any one. llo puke in warm Icrun of .ipptnhnlinn ofllip idmiu noiiim, illon, (ii'ii llaiimin hecii knuuii lu linn fur :i iiiiiiilier of u',u(, lu Iml Mild uiih linn ! 1 1 1 in I Ik; 1 1 1 1 1 - snirl iim Senile, mifl rmild le.-illf m hU WUttTll, hi IV rnniiii'v. uu caiwci rv, i.n.iio hi cw STITUTIONAL 10UTICA!4 VIKIVS. lit: was riiiiflie l dial iiuihiiin Inn guilty negligence mi lliu p. ii I ol' hirt Ciieiiils cuul.l piuvenl liiiu Iiuiii liein llie next picoiilenl, Will the Express, Sentinel, St. Albans Republican, and Keesvillo Herald, allow their readers to see this paragraph ?

The Louisville City Gazette of the 11th inst, states tho fact, that "six democrats of that place, good and true, who have hither to supported the administration" have come over to the support of Gen. Harrison. At a meeting at Indianapolis, II. O'Neil and C. C. Nave, Eq. prominent suppor ters of Mr. Van Buien, come out and a vowed their intention to support Old Tip pecanoe for the Presidency. A resolution wns offered n few days ago in the Kentucky Legislature, that the Government should ordur a national salute to be fired on the Clh of January, in coin metnoration.of the buttle of New Orleans. The resolution was passed, but passed with this interesting amendment : . i irom tne is'iiisu, on inc oui uciooer. lesij, m the bat tie of the Thames), by General William Henry Harrison, and Ins brave companions in urins, bu alone used by ln Excellency, in firing the foregoing ealnle." The Ohio Freeman edited by Capt.

At a meeting held in Maysvtlle, Ken tucky, Mr. Samuel P.

I ,to the following article from the National ' Intelligencer. The importance of tho l"Pol convention must be obvious at a ginnco ; aim aitnou a glance ; and although victory will most, assuredly crown the i ellorts ol the great Whig party at the approaching Presiden tial election, it is due to ourselves, our cause, and our country that no exertions should be spared to swell tho triumph of the People. To the Young Whigs of the U. Slates : It is thought proper to invito your at tention, mure distinctly than has yet been (limp, to the fact, that among the doings of thu Harrisburg Convention was n resolu tion recommending to the Whig young Jlcn of the scverul States to nssnmblc in General Convenlio)i,'u the city of Baltimore on tho first Monday in May next, for the puiposcof odvoncing the cause ofsound principles, and securing the election of the tho nominees of the Ilarrisburgli Convcn Hon. It is time that the Young Whigs in cv , cry Slato in the Union were bestirring themselves to carry into cfiect this rcc omniondalion, which, independently of its di' reel object, cannot fnil to be attended with the happiest effects, in bringing togeth er so large a gathering, as tuny be expec ted on such an occasion, of the Young Men on whom rest the confidence of the Whig for success, in tho present contest, and the hopes of the Nation for its future prosper iiy and glory. Coming from the most re. mote as well adjacent States, the mere gratification uf an interchange of friendly salutations between the sons of the North and the South, of tho East and of the West would be one to be remembered for years, whilst acquaintance and friendships niny be mode between many which will last throughout their lives. We trust that our young Whig friend will put themselves immediately and ear nestly in motion lu accomplish this desira ble object. FOREIGN INFLUENCE. We have been aware for some lime that numerous nctilions had been nreseulcd lo the President nruvinc for the release of - , Mc'Kcnziu from imprisonment. These have prritv uniformly been treated with con ti'inptuous neglect, while tho sentence of the law has been cxeculed wilh unusua severity upon the unfortunate subject of these petitions. It seems, however, that Mr. Vim Buren has at last intimated to the petitioners that they should direct their efforts to another ouorter. He savs ihot If Urillsh buuject would petition lie i-lioulil be ''most penetrable lu their kind entrea ties." The following is an extract from a Benii.ofl'iciol letter on the subject : 'My own private views are, that if the friends of Mr McKnnzie would appeal to the magnanimity of the resident represcn. lativo of the IJritisli provinces of North America, by his request, he would be re. leased, nnd relieve the question from llie einbnrrnssment in which it seems involved.' It is certainly very "embarrassing" fur an American President to be afraid of offending the British authrilics ; cud also very humbling to the pride of every Aincr. ican citizen. But wo cannot do better justice than to copy the following manly comments of the Franklin Gazette1, a t-pirit. ed administration paper published al Fort Covington, N Y. "We some tunc since, in nn article upon the alarming- prevalence of British influence in our lend, expressed the belief tbiit this influence bud "reached the Exec utive mansion." nnd that Us effects were discoveiable in Hit courso pureuntl by the President in leg rd tu various important questions involving the national honor Wo have nlready adduced sufficient evi dence in support of our assert inn lo satisfy every candid man o its truth, hut wo nro now prepared to plaeu tlm mailer beyond all cavil or controversy. Yes. tliern can be nn longer uuy dnubt about it. " We nre at the fool of the British throne, and wo ho lo thoso who have brougbt us thote Thousands and (hoiisaudn ul American cit. izens, commisseruii.'i!' the condition of the unfortunate patriot Mnckei.ziii, who i., by a most unrighteous and iniquitous sentence immured in uu American prison, und bu lievtng him guiltless if all crime, have pe titioned the President for bis release. But il has not suited his notions of ileiuuerucy to bestow the sligbtoht notico upon those petitions. No, the successor of Wishing ton. of Jefferson, und of Jackson, will inn coude-.e-euil to notice the petitions of the American people, but wo are plainly told by one uf his friends in Congress where an intlueiicu may be found that will cniibe him to act We nre told in tho following letter from Mr, Koiui to the Democratic Association of Philadelphia, ihtit a request from "the resident represeniutivo of the British provinces in North America, would in his opinion effect Mackenzie's rolease. So, wo havuo power in this country, which in llio viuw of Van Buren, is superior to tho people, Let him beware, or he may icurii lo his cost thai the will nf the people is n power to which even ho must buw.und that they nre not slow in meting out the reward to political nposlacy.

The products of industry are emphatically the wealth of uic nation, anu its prosperity is in t inustienlv is in nrotior- tion to the rapidity with which they are circuiaioei. Tj)f. statesman and the far mer should have tho same object, the multiplication of these products, and there must be a union of their efforts to accom plish the object. There can be no pros perity without industry, and there will bo no industry when our" statesmen leave it to shirk for itself. If the laws afford no encouragement, industry dies. It dies as surely us the body dies without nourish ment. Tho interests of our agriculture cannot bo sustained without protection. 1 do not mean by this that we aro in any danger of starving, but I moan what "l say, that tho leading interest of tho State will languish unless speedy protection is granted. The prosperity of a nation con sists in the prosperity of all its members, and the prosperity of individuals consists in the increase of the products of their industry. No matter how groat the' amount of these products, if there is not an annual increase, there is no prosper--ity ; hut if the iiinoiiiit is yearly dimin ished, there will soon be misery. 1 shall attempt no argument to prove' the foregoing, for the man that wants argument on such propositions, either wants honesty or wants brains. Utit I will attempt to play the prophet a little, and foretel what a year or two will brinr forth, unless we can dispute less about party strifes, and act more in concert to obtain reliuf. We have now in the State some three millions of sheep, and within two years the number will not exceed one. Tho interest invested in dairies will bo diminished one half. Take the whole amount of our products together, and tliev will bo diminished one third. Now let every man preserve this paper, and once in a while look at it, and watch the fulfil nieiit of the prediction. Jlttt what is of more importance, let him examine the subject carefully and learn the cause of it. These things never happen by chance. The laws of cause and effect operate here as every where else, and people can un derstand them if they will, or they can deceive themselves if they choose to do it for party effect. Occasional advances iu price do not always indicate a healthy cause, but if we expect permanent pros perity, the foundation must be laid in something more honest than squandering the nation's lands, and more promising than old J funks' box to lock our gold and silver in. Rut let us turn aside" to pro phecy one word as to this subtreasury scheme. As to any direct oifoct upon the State, it will have none at all. It is a negative measure altogether. It may pi-ove-m Swartwout from stealing the mo ney, and it may not. There were two Swartwouts in the country, and tho other was named Price and both have a thou sand cousins, spell it as you will. Rut like Hunk's box, it will dij no good. It cannot promote the industry of the State. It cannot prevent speculation and excess in the issuing of bills, but it will favor tho parti.ans of tlio administration, and in rb end will destroy the projectors of it. It is without wisdom for any effects expected of it ; and it will die" without friends. 1 wish not to array the north against the south, but if wo do not protect our own interests who do we expect will ? In the cold north Ave cannot raise cotton, and we shall not raise wool if it finds no market ; and what manufacturer can stand alone against the cheap labor of the starving class of Europe, with tho wealth of England to back up their man ufactures. We cannot send potatoes to London, and they will not admit our Hour except when the price rises to the point of starvation. With all this we aro mock ed with the nonsense about free trade. just as if England over for a moment relaxed lier energies to maintain her as cendency. She has too much at stake. She lets her fools talk about free trade, but takes good care not to practice 11)1011 it. What we want is a homo market, and our industry will ling without it. Agriculture is emphatically the great in terest, but in order to become prosperous it must have encouragement. Sustain the manufacturers, and agriculture nour ishes of course. Yoke the two together, and commerce drives her trade with rail road speed. Agriculture, manufactures, and commerce have a natural connexion ; they live or die together. Like the tripod from which tho princess of Apollo deliv ered her oracles, touch one of the legs and the princess falls ; or like tho three fold coid of scripture, cut ono of the strans and the cord is broken. The doctrine of the administration is that individual en terprise hum not bo controlled. Wo say so too ; but individual enterprise must bo encouraged and sustained. All other governments do it, and ours can do it. Measures nitty bo so devised that every interest may bo protected, and all act harmoniously together. It has been so in times gone by, and it may bo so again. It will be so when tho people feel the ne cessity of it, and until they do, we must wait and hope. 1 have never despaired of tho republic, and 1 have never seen the time when there was greater cause of anxiety. Nothing is so unconquorablo as obstinacy, and the followers of the administration seem to have a plentiful supply. During (ion. Jackson's timo there was something to an'nnato ; he had bold points of character ; but no man over discovered any thing to interest or to excite in Martin Van Buren. Sunux.
