Men of high no tions of honor would nut bo willing to place Ihrmsehes iu such a ipie-tionablo position, lie h is voluntarily placed himself at the head of a fiction without eien a hope of attaining the professed object, and with the least possible chalice nf cniitiihutiug to any national benefit. What his actual ni.ilives are, may bo conjectur ed, but is not worth Ihc hbor of any enquiry. Smarting under the disgrace of being repudi ated by his political friends in 1811, ho may be actuated hy a spiiil of revenge. Hut whatever may bo bis motives or his object, he is filed to experience tho nio-t signal rebuke that ever awaited any doomed man to receive the curses uf ,U late oolitiral friends Hie reprobation of political opponent, and the scorn and iU'rion cl all. If there L a man in America that in dulges any hostile feeling toward him, they will soon bo mure than satiated. The hl-tory of Mr. V. II. is a sort of continued state trial, with uninterrupted convictions. I lis nomination as Minister to Fngland was rejecled , tll0 yenle lmder circumst:.ncc, and by such ' , . . . . , to a renders it a signal rebuko; R it, a intimated, the Democracy took linn up and madu him President in 1S3G. In tlie short space of four years he so far forfeited the confidence of the country, that in 1810, he was driven from power by a mnt a-tounding vote. This vote was not confined lo Whigs, but thniisands ol the Democracy joined to swell the verdict. In 1811 he was again brought forward by his frionds and partisans, but what was the result 1 He was rejected by the party, and a man put in . . ' -.- i i ii .,.; nomination comparitively unknown. Having had the election but for ono term, it was urged by his particular friends that ho was entitled to a rc.uinliial!on, but Ilie party was inexorable and lie was thrust aside. What the actual reasons arc that caused his rejection may never be certainly known, and I probably hut few will take tho trouble to en ' quire. It may have been an exemplification of i the remark of Lord Mansfield, that cunning is l the silliest thing in the world, and the peculiar j quality so geneially concided to him, may have I become odious to his political associates. Cold, I calculating, and sidlish, without any of that I .....1. ..r il. .t !i.ln...l. . Mtr..cts. it is not ondc"fiil that his adherents had become tick or his service and were wil ling lo be relea-ed. It is now in-isted by some of his present ad herents, lint his rejection in 1SH vai occasion- ed by Ills ho-tiiily oil the slave ipieslioli There never wasagreiter mistake. When had lie omitted anvthing that the South could a-k of " nlitlin!, nnuhing. he had .... become ultra in his devotion unlit tho very mall bags were subjected In Iheir police, lly his j known subserviency he h id acquired the equivo cal cpunuincn uf the northern man vvilh southern leeling-, and seemed proud of the distinction. , He admitted thai Congress had the cnn-tilu , ,l""a' P" M'-U " ",! Jls.1 ICt C.ilnnibia. but nroclaiuied that ho would veto any bill enacting its abolishment. What power lull he to veto such a bill, except on the ground ... , ,. I!i,. J ll would 1,-nn limn III lis uui;oii-uiiii...i.iii.j i violation of his dntv. His hoslililv to the slave power could not bo great if he was vvil - ling tu violate the con ittltlOll to SUStaIn It. Il is understood that Mr. V. II lent hi- inme and inllueneo, and probably his vole, tu aid iu the plccliun uf Mr. Folk. This is Inconsistent with the idea or any settled hostility lo slavery, or slave inllueuce. While Fresident he rejected the overtures of Texas for adim-sion, but the rejection had n ilhiiig to do vvilh slavery. It vv as on the ground lhat war vv as then existing be tween Texas and M xico, and that Hie L'nited Slates were al peace with Mexico, and his sub- sequent letters show, that the war being at an end, he was uol uulavoraUc to tho admission of Texas to the Union. His present hostility to slavery is assumed for the occasion, and is a pretext got up to create a patty, or rather lo draw around an old ptily, Iho fanatics of the liberty party. If his object is to create a Jivi rion in ono or Iho other of thu leading par - ties, he may succeed ; but lhat he can have the least hope of gaining anything like a respecta ble vote, is Impossible. He may possibly obtain Ilie vole of some one State, and thus bring his name before Congress, but tint is doubtful. Hut supposing ho gets the vote ol one State can that satl-fy the ambition of an honorable man who has no sinister views, and seeks only lo advance his country s good f ll ' s ho lias become insensible tu thu ignominy ol such a posilinii, his friends should have mercy on him and forbid tho immolation. There is something til cajtaudum iu the name now assumed by the FieeSoil parly. Hut in ils origin, the puty had nothing to do vvilh tlie slave question, fine soil, nor any such grayp nailer. The free soil i-, but a reproduclioii of 1, 1 .- 1 1 . :il.n..i r.-il,.iw 11 inu-jniiri, one 01 iniisu nyiiiii-. winch sprung into existence iu the ;mi7 stale for the purpose ol siiatcliuig Hum Old llunkei d ui a shvro at least nr the plumhr.

Xl'MUEB V. When our Government was cstablished.Slave ry pxislpd iu most of the States, but it was con sidered an evil and no one then thought of con tinuing it as a principle of National policy. The gieat dilliculty was to know how to get rid of it. Some States had many Slaves, and limp was required to introduce any new plan, and each btato must be 1c It lo lunn and carrv out its own plans. Hence tlie constitution was a compromise, each State was left to manago its own allairn, but the action of Congress, it was suppuscd, would bo directed toward tho removal of the evil. To prevent any precipitancy it was agreed and became a part of the constitution, thai the importation of Slaves should not be pro hibitcd hy Congress before the year 1808, but they might impose a tax of ten dollars a head before that lime. Tho eaily history of the Government shows that Congress kc(t the subject constantly iu view and took eUcclual measures to remove the evil as f ist as practicable, and to prevent Hie possibility of its spreading. Tho idea that Con gress has no powerto legislate on that subject, is an alter llnught entertained by a section of i the Democratic party only, for no Whig can en tertain the !ca-t doubt. Al the formation or tho ennstitution, the Uni ted Stales, as such, possessed no domain, but as we know, va-t tracts were soon ceeded to them in trust for the Union, and Congress immediately legislated on tho subject. The celebrated Or dinance of 173" was formed for tho purpose of bringing the po.vcr of Hie nation lo bear on the question uf Slavery, and most cllcctmilly was il dune. This great measure wns adopted by an act of Congress at its lirst sesion under the constitution, and the legislation of that body has been constant and uniform from that time to the rejection ol the Compromise 11.11 at the last ses sion. The language of the Ordinance is that" there "shall be neither Slavery nor involuntary ser vitude in said territory, otherwise than in pun "ishmcnt for crimes whereof the party shall bo "duly convicted." T.iis principle has been af firmed constantly as new States' have been form d out of this territory, and not only so, but iu every instance where new territory has been acquired, C ingress has legislated in relation to this very matter of Slavery, and it is too late fur any sound statesman to doubt the ;u:ccr ul Congress. If we vvero to point to the prominent measures of Whig policy, hnslllilij In Slaiery would be among the lirst. Thev have never ceased tu ll'-v"c'lt0 H'O largest liberty-they have never ceased to protest against theexten-ion of Slave- ey. The action or our Stale Legislature has been uniform, the Wuig votes iu Congress have been as truo as the needle to the polo, and sh ill we now bo told that tho Whig party is not fa vorable to Ihu cause of liberty that tho non party, called hy way ol' eminence tho Liberty parly, are the only oincere ojmosers of Slave ry. In June 11.1, we hill a largo convention of Whigs for nominating a member of Congress, at which .Mr. Marsh was nominated. It will bo recollected by many, tint on tint occasion res olutions were p.i.-.-eil expressive of Whig poli cy, mid among them strong resolutions reproba ting Slavery and its inllueneo on our iu-titu-tions. I ask tint they uny he re-published, lhat all tiny see tint hostility to Slavery is not , " ""r "if"'. 1 1 lesu resolutions weru 110(1111 These resolutions I . .i, , , , i Kn0,m '" Mr- -:lr1'.
