Integrity. We hold a political parly to bo an organiza tion for the purpou of carrying out certain po litical principles. Tlie object of a party docs not centre In Itself, as a party, but in tho prin ciples on winch it is based. The principles, not tho paity, then, are at stake, w lienovcr the parly Is arrayed for contest. Circumstances may give a porlion of the polit ical rroedof a p-irly greater prominence at one time than nnothcr, and these circumstances may be beyond the control of human power. This

Is often tho case. And when it happens that in tlio position of a party for tlie time being, there is less prouiinenco given to certain measures than to othors, when a part is especially urged as tho ground of hope for the success of the icWc, there must, as a matter of course, bo dis appointment to those who have tagged them selves to some of the principles of a pirty, and have not planted themselves on tlio whole plat form. Then mut nlso ensue a temporary disaf fection, among those who bale not learned that there is a lime for all things, and that no party will prove fal-etoits principles, when there is any reasonable hope or expectation for iiume diilo or ultimate success. Now tiiclc is a certain consistency in tho character of every man, and in tho expression of those principles by which eiery body of men profess to bo governed, in their collective ca pacity. From a knowledge of theso principles, it can be safely predicated what will be tho ac lion of a man, or a body of men, in a given case. It is true that this consistency of character and principle, which underlies every manifesta tion of the plans and purposes of men, can be depended upon, if only interpreted in the light of a know ledge of human nature. There are some who cannot take this broad view of tlie ease, and plant themselves on the logical and rational iiccfssiy.which there exists in the nature of the human mind, of consistency, more e-i mlly in the actions of all public bed, ics ! They cannot, or will not see, that if cor tain conservative principles predominate, certain others of k.odr"d spirit must as a matter rf nc, cessity bo at the same time effectually at work. A spirit of radicalism is at work in ourcouii' try which would fiin furce reforms, before the lime has come wherein the evil can be done away with, without at the same time destroying much that is good. Tills spirit is working it self out into the so called Liberty parly. Iti creed is " Dow n with Slavery." Truly Slave ry is an evil. Would that we were well rid of it. Hut are their no other evils to bo remedied ? Are there no other interests, save those of the Slave, to be projected ?

The letter of Mr. Mi Cxkxv docs not touch the matter in question at all. It acknowledges no difference in thn "two lives," save tho letter of Gen.

The crocodiles weep, tint " the noblest Ro man of them all" should be shoved aside to make room for a military aspirant, who, they contend, is unworthy even to " unloose tho latchets of the shoos" of the great and puro statesmen, whose many virtues they havo so recently dis covered.

It is bettor to dis cover truth late than lo be blind to it always ; wo thank them, that they have provod how false and malicious have been their abusa oT tlie man, whom the Whigs have sustained so long, and whom they hive not ceased to admire, and would still delight to honor. Another fact of which they h ive lately become conscious, is, lhat Martin Van Huron is just what the, .Whig papers have alwiy represented him '"Pal'0 who hai been almost from boy hood tho pet of his party, is fillen so low that but few of his former followers cm stoop to do him honor.

"Ho always was," say thee new converts to truth, " a North ern man wilh Southern principles." He always was " ready to yield hitnscll to any course tor the purpose of self elevation." These are old truths, and jou have but to ex amine the files of any Whig paper to see how strenuously they have always been insisted on ; or the columns ot any Locofoco journal, to see how Ihtly th"y have boon denied.and how fierce ly they have been repelled, until their old pet lent himself to a new organization, to play again tlie same game as of old. Again we congratulate our friends of tho de mocracy, upon the opening of their eyes to these truths, and thank them anew for this unwilling eiidtncc to the truthfulness of the Whig jour nals. We headed our article with the word fun; but tlioru is mingled with the feeling wilh which wo regard this subject, something deeper than fun. There is a piinfulness in looking nt such gross, such apparent, yet unblushing inconsist ency. "Indemnity lor the Int nnd Security for the j inure."
