U'hiit then aio llie attributes which ought to nllacli to linn who is selected out of four teen millions, to receive the highest honor and trust in the gift of his fellow men i Iln should he u creat man great in his licnd, groat in his heart. Willia muni acuto, discriminating and powerful, ho should ho nble to grasp all tho vast concerns of a wide ly extended nation, gifted with fav-scoing sagacity to doviso and with energy and ic sciurcos to perfect measures which look not merely at the temporary, but at the perma nent interests of the people. Ho should have age and experience in the conduct of public nlluirs, that tho welfare of the stale may not be put in jeopardy by the follies of youth or the blunders of ignorance. He should have a fame so wido and extended, that throughout the length and bieadth of the land, his name and deed should be as house hold words. He should havo a soul, gene rous, expansive and benevolent, embracing all mankind in ils sympathy. Ho should bo selected for his own intrinsic merits alone. He should be a man always devoted to the welfare of his country and ready to sacrifice himself and his hopes to secure her weal. He should possess a lofty dignity of charac ter, such as extorts respect even from adver saries. Ho should be a man, nol known merely lo a little section of his own country, but whoso name, as the fiiend of freedom, of justice and of truth, is repeated and revered throughout the civilized world. Whcru lives there such a man ? At Ash land in Kentucky, and thither the people of tins great union arc about to send a voice, strong, unequivocal and irresistible, demand ing tho services of their greatest and noblest fellow citizen, in the highest of caithly sta tions. THE DOCUMENTS Tho nomination of Mr. l'olk for the Presidency renders it fitting and proper that his views on nil the great ipicslions of natioiril policy should he fully ami faiily spread before the people, that they may act iindorstiindingly in reference lo tli'in; and we had hoped that his supporters would have distinctly set furth the principles on which they support him, and havo at least refer red us to tho evidences of his fidelity to them. This, for some strange reason, they have neg lected, and still rrfusc lo do; and the world is left as profoundly ignorant of Mr. Polk's public speeches and acts, as though he had not been fourteen years in the U. .S. Congress, two years Governor of Tennesse, and twice before the people of Tennessee as a candidate for Gov ernor. In the latter of these campaigns he ad dressed the people NIN1!TY-1'1 VI! limes from the stump ; wrote out and published a number of these speeches for distribution ; in addition to thich he challenged his competitor, Mr. Joms, lo discuss the leading political topics through the newspapers, which was accepted, and the Nash ville papers bear record of the views set forth. And yet, strange to say, not one of these speeches is quoted by Mr. Polk' supporters here, nor a solitary sentiment he ever uttered previous to his nomination, permitted to sec thu light ! How is this? II Vi 1 is it? Could a man spend some twenty years in active public life and not say something worth repeating ? Something which would furnish a safer indication of his rrul sentiments on any given subject, than what he might say when called upon as an inter ested witness? It teem to us so; don't it lo you, reader? l!ut thus it is. The question of FROTKCTION, is one in which wu all feel a deep intererest. The supporters of l'olk say he is in furor of protection. Wo ask them for the evidence to refer us lo the speech in which he advocated the doctrine. They decline ! Wo nsk them to publish any one of his speeches) on the subject. They refuse ! Finally, we chal lenge the Sentinel and Democrat to refer us to nny act, vote, or scntiineul of his, previous to his nomination, which would warrant any such in terpretation ; and they tell us they " are sick of this everlasting twaddle about protection" ! Well, wc will trouble them no more ; but to Un law and the testimony. Il'c will resort lo Mr. Polk's public speeches mid acts, and faithfully report as we there find him. Judge ye. In the session of 1 .33v!-';i3, .Mr. l'olk was a member of tho Committee of Ways and Means, who reported a bill,'1 (which did not pass.) greatly reducing the duties below those adopted by the tariff act of the preceding session (tariff of lti:!J). He made a long speech in favor of the new bill, and against the protective system, which will be found in the Cong. Deb., p UG'. As a Bpccimen of that speech an extract will suffice t ' It appears from this testimony that the duties uiioii woolens (now fifty per cent.) may not only he reduced, hut that twcntyfire prr ant. will h? a sufficient protection, provided there be a corres ponding HiUMJCTlON ON Till!

" " " 1 propose next lo establish, by testimony equally entitled lo credit, thu third proposition, which is, that the manulactures of the United Stales were in a prsperous condition under tho costing more and fur the crVif years intervening between the years Idlfi and &H, and also that thcaci 01 loll), njjorded them ample ituitlcntul pro tection."

Rut wc sometimes do public speakers great injustice by putting an interpretation on what they say. As if to avoid the possibility of such a contingency, Gov. l'olk wound up his speech on this occasion with the following avowal of his position.

That inado some reduction, thocoii Nor as much as I iiesiiu.ii to have Maui:, I voted for the act of March i!d, lS:i:i, (commonly called tho com promise act) which reduced thu rales of tho act of lSIW to still lower rales, and finally brought the rates of the act of In'i'i down to a point" at which no nrticlo was, alter thu Duth of June, IS P.'. to be subject to a duty hiirher than 'JO tier cent.

I urn infaior of the resto ration of the compromise act of ItSXl. Here we might rest this subject, and perhaps ought to; but wo beg the reader's indulgence one step further. Mr. Polk says ho is in favor of going back lo the principles of tho compromise act. The compromise act was predicated on tho fact that the proceeds of tho public lands had been disposed of by distribution, and were not to re turn to tho treasury as a sourco of revenue. Now Jisten to him in reference lo the public lands. Hois for tlio compromise act; but, mind ye, how determined he is to return the land inou- ey to the treasury, for the AVOWED PUR POSE of robbing protection of even the little "incidental aid it might get under the 20' per cent, horizontal duty of the compromise act, that lie talks ol returning to! Notc how constantly he is haunted with tho idea of a "protective ta rill" Vermont," and licr "pecuniary inter est" in the lands the" manufacturing states,' and si. England generally ! Hut read. We copy from lus "Address to the people of Tennessee, March 'Sith IBU." " If the receipts from tho sales of the public lands, amounting to several millions annually, shall be abstracted from the Tit'aury,and giU., In the States, It follows that an equal amount must bu raised hy an increase of tho Tariff, or by 11 tax in sotno other form, to supply the deficien cy ; and if raised by an inrrease of tho Tariff, it requires no argument to prove that tho tax will bo paid in unequal proportions hy Ihe people of it... .l:.r 1 . .. .1... it..! .it.- sJ..,t,nrn IIIU llllieieilL &CCIIOI13 III IIIO UIIIOII t'"C- wowni.n and planting States hearing much the freater part of the burden. To avoid this objection, and 10 conceal from the tax paying portion of the Union, the fact that thu ultimate effect, if not tho main object of Ihe measure, will ho to afford 11 plausiblo pretext for an increased 1'ROTliC- TlVl! TARIFF, it is said Ihat the increased tax may he levied 011 Wines, Silks, and other luxu ries. Still it will bo a tax upon labor, and will naturally affect tho value of our products given in exchange for thoin. Must it not strike tho advo cates of distribution too, that thu powcr of this argument is lost, when they rolled, that if luxu ries are not stillictently taxed, tnai inu ueuer plan would be to leave tho monies arising from lands in thu Treasury, to defray tho public ex penses, as far as Ihey will go, and then to lighten the duties 011 necessaries ami increase iiiein on luxuries. In another view, the proposed distribution is n tariff measure. If it prevail, Massachusetts, VLRMONT and other States, containing with in their borders no portion of tho public lands, will lie immediately vested with a local I l,on. NIARY INTKRliST IN THEM. The public lands, will, in effect, bo mortgaged to Ihe seve ral States, in proportion equal to their Federal representation in Cancress, and they will have an interest in having them sold nt the highest possible rates. They will havo an interest 111 opposing tho graduation or reduction of price, and in opposing thu grant of preemption at low rales to that hardy and enterprising race 01 pio neer occupants who have gone with their fami lies to the West, built their ' log cabins,' opened their little farms and settled upon lliem, because they would apprehend that the amount of their respective dividends in inu utstriuuiion wouiu uc thereby diminished. Thu MANUFACTURING States would have a peculiar interest in resisting the reduction of price or Ihe grant of preemption to settlers at a low rate, because lo keep up the price of the lands, and withhold grants of preemption would be to check emigration, retain tho laboring popu lation at home, and llius reduce Ihe wages of la bor, and increase the profits of the capitalists en gaged in manufacture:!. The manufacturing in terests would be advanced by it for another rea son. They would receive their federal propor tion of the distribution, and would not contribute in the same ratio in thu payment nf the lax lo supply the deficiency. They would, in addition lo tins, receive Ihe "bounties to their manufac tures, which an increased tariff would afford, whilst these bounties would bu paid by tho South; in F.VF.RY V1I!W OF Till! MICAS Ultl!, it is an auxiliary to the PROTECTIVE policy. It is presented, it is true, in the seduc tive, but at the same time, deceptive and dis guised form, of giving money to the Stales out of the Federal Treasury, when it is, in truth, laying new burdens on the people. The MANUFAC TURING States so understand it, and hence the Legislature of VERMONT, Rhode-Island, Con- tiecticnt, New-York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, ami some other Stales, have, during the past and J present year, passeil Legislative resolves iuslruc- 1 ting their Senators and requesting their Repre- sentatives in Congress lo advocate Ihe measure. 1 The State of Connecticut publicly declares that MUCH IS HIT IHI Ulll II V '.lMIIJI IH'hDlVL', ill INC same lime instructing her Senators and Repre- sentatives in Congress to " resist by all constitn. tiuual means every attempt to destroy or impair the oroteetivo oohev ." and lo use theirexerlions to procure the passage of such laws as will ell'ec- iimwy protect. ineiauoro.iiiis country, -l ie ma.,. ui.ieiiinog jaonr, 01 course, is meaiii. 1 lie Legislature of Pennsylvania, in the month of January last, avowed 111 direct terms that an m-1 ed a'llesolve instructing their Senators and Rep- , resuntatives to advocate and vote for tho distribu- j 11011, iiuii passu!! a SCUUIIM lu-suni; ill Mil; luuun ' ' . 1 ' ing words, viz : ilcsolicd, That our Senators be further instruc ted, and our Representatives requested, lo vote for such modification or adjustment of tho tariff a' may increase the revenue derived from im ports equal to thu wants of the National Govern ment, so that at no time hereafter, under any pretext whatever, shall any money, arising from thu sales of the public lands, be used by the General Government." "All the Resolves referred to were passed by Legislatures, a ma jority of whose members were the political friends and supporters of the pres ent National Administration.

See what ho will say to you. " Politicians sometimes speak one way, and vote another," said Hen. Hardin. Mr. Van Hu ron always spoke against Ihe tariff, but generally voted for it. lint not so with Mr. Polk. He has been iu deed, as well as word, on all occasions, the enemy of protection. Search the records of Congress, and you will find that in every in stance, where the protecting system was attack ed, he was its ASSAILANT, its constant and uncompromising I'OI!, At home, at the hus tings, and in the executive chair, it has always been the same. Of the light in which his leading supporters regard him, tho following, from a late No. of the Nashville Union, is conclusive : " We wish it borne in mind, that Ihe oppres sive Tarill" of 1812 has been condemned by every true Democrat, and by none more ilecideuly than Mr. Van Huron. 77.? 7' ITS I llul ISIUJYS .?;: vi r.wrjt with .uuwuiie.xce uy (IOVVM.XOU l'OI.K.IXI) .?,.

If, in view of all these facts, tho wool-growers, the manufacturers, tho mechanics, the laborers of Vermont aro prepared to vote for James K, Polk, or any way aid his election, let them never again complain of low prices, lack of employ ment, scarcity of money, or " hard times," All thu consolation we can promiso them is con tained in tho following announcement of the Charleston Courier, evidently made under the supposition Ihat Mr, Polk's election was within the range of possibilities : " lie cim vromise the manufacturers nothing further, than that in currying through our filed purpose of t ltt;t; TIM ll U and I.UIV UUTiKS. ... -I..II-.... 1.- .1 1. 1.1. . 1. .. . .1 II gnuu itui tic iitiic itai aiiiij, mil itiiu uue iinamc ration of the circumstances in which LF.

SPRUCE vs. HICKORY. Amid the battle's fearful crash, When foujilit our sires for victory, They trusted not in spruce or ash, Hut iu their firm old Hickory. Loco Song. I lus verso may ho true us regards " our sires," but it docs n't hold good of (ho Locos of this region The little hickory sapling that was to have adorned the top oflhe old one now standing in llio park, lias been cruelly abandoned siuco its disgraceful tumble, and suro us fnto a " spruce " stick lias been raised to take its placo ! Rather awkward that, for tho verso above quoted. But tho " young hickory " was found loo small to surmount tho oW ono, and bear (lie national eaglo which now perches on llio spruco ! Tho sons of "our sires " proposo to try tho " ash " next November, and we doubt not they will find it firm and sliong. HOIIROWEI) OF Till! TRUE democrat. It would be discourteous to our neighbor of the Tiuo Democrat to decline the ti nder of thu above ib lustratio I for the u-cofour columns j and wo the moro cheerfully accept the oiler, in consideration of tho fact that our utielibor has oiuiittd to give the de sign that intciprttation which its ambiguous charac ter seems to demand. The coon-skinning is evidently no so. Ii was com menced "'in ndvanceof the mails"j but the O. K. which the stinbininsof the actual returns relied upon ihe old coon's ribs put a diinperon that operation, mid you will nhscric lint the operator is triinglo tuck hick what he has done, and wait for the "official canvass" I "Chapman " too, it will bo observed, has taken a safe position aloft, where he can " see just as ell." He has already lost a line left of feathers about ibe throttle, and seems not in the least disposed to run lite risk of biing neain loustled by " that old coon," The man behind the ttee is a holder of Texas scrip, who believis the great cause of freedom depends upon folk s election 1 but Hhoat tho same tunc evpresses tli j til lrtuynu conviction that, as tilings arc go. tm; in Louisiana, be will low tho opportunity of cal linn on the I'uited States for half a million of dollars The chap in the tree top is ono of those thieving ras cals who lied lo Texas to escape the slato prison Hearing that Texas was comiiu into the t'n'ton, be cut stick aaain, and finally ''treed" on the borders of louisiana the diy before eleetion. The result how ever, has satisfied him lint the "father land" is not anxious for bis return, and he is now swinging hi hat and glorjing in ihe conviction that Texas will re- inun, yet awhile, ibe asylum for rogues and row dies. The blaekjlug waving over n poor slace sealed tip on a sugar hojshead, triti a rope around hit nrcl;, speaks for itself. It was distuned to celebrate a Polk triumph; and nothing could hae been more appro prtate. It speaks trinnpet-tongited of ibe real deigns and ultimate ends of loeofocuisiu. Poll; was iiomina ted to secure annexation ; anncinion is sotijbt for to extend and perpetuate slavery ; and upon the result bangs tho fate of million- of lunula boincs. The True democracy of the North, however, co for Polk and in the event of lus elect! in, will be first, as we have the evidence before us, lo apply ll.r hiltcr and ai I in riveting the chains ol'slavery ; and then tanta lizo ibe poor wretch about to be sold into emiisiinc hondigc, by reminding him tint the glorious dig nf freedom Moils over a new, a rich, territory of slaves!
