The Bar ot the city of New York held en adjourned meeting in the Aldermen's room, City Hall, at noon yesterday, for the purpose of relieving the President and Senate of the United States from the trouble of selecting a fit and proper person to occupy the vucant seat of the Supreme Court, in the place of the late Judge Thompson. Tliisinterposition of the lawyers in a matter already provided for by the constitution, had its origin, of course, in a friendly motive towards the Executive; but we are distressed to announce that the whole affair has turned out to be much ado about nothing, and very nearly a comedy of errors, infinitely more amusing to the lookers-on than that of the great bard. Avast array?no, a most alarming number of the profession was in attendance; a stranger, indeed, seeing their lean and hungry looks, might immediately have guessed that something connected with office and salary was in scent, which the whole pack of legal harriers would be glad to run into. Nothing, however, resulted from their inspiriting howls ; things relupsed into their former state ; nd the President and Senate are graciously permitted to exercise, without interference, their constitutional functions. John Anthon, Esq., was called to the chair ; and Judux Inulis oihcialcd as Secretary. The Chairman briefly explained the circumstances under which the present adjourned meeting was held, and tho purpose for which it was convened -} alter which he called upon the mover of the first resolution. Mr. Eliaj If. Elv then came forward, and expressed his dissent from the interference ol the bar in this matter. It belongod to the Executive by the Constitution, lie, then-lore, begged to move, " That it is inexpedient for the bar of the city of New York to recommend any candidate for a seat upon the bench of tha Supreme Court of the United States." Mr. Bi.rnt seconded the motion. Mr. Koar.rt Kmmktt,after a.few brief observations,in the course ol which he said he could not altogether concur in the lorm ol the motioujust proposed,moved,as a substitute, " that the bar of the city ot New York, not having in any manner heretofore expressed any preference for any particular eaudidato for the vacant ouiceof Judge oi the Supreme Court of the United States, deem it at this time inexpedient to recommend any candidate for the said oflice, or to adopt any course or action in regard to such appointment." Mr. Smith seconded Mr. Einmott'.s motion. The question eventually resolved itself?the two motions being substantially the same?into this, whether the preamble to Mr. Einmett's should be retained or struck out. The Chairman having so put itMr. Cowdrrv said the real question seemed to be, what action oaght to be taken by the bar upon the subject. lie fully agreed, however, with an observation by a preceding speaker, that the bar should not have been convened upon it; and at the same time he wus ignorant of any proceedings having taken place which culled for the interposition of the bar of the city of New York. If there ought to be action taken at all, it should be one declaratory of their opinions hi the event of any particular individual being selected as a candidate who was obnoxious to the bar ot New York. And, now, if any such candidate existed, let bin name be mentioned ; and he (Mr. Cowdreyl, for one, ?u ready to express hi* dissent to the appointment of some of the candidates whose names had gone abroad. That ought to be the course ol the bar, whilst on the other hand they exliibited no individual preference. There weru at least twenty men in that room, and more than twenty belonging to the bar of New York, every way qualified to fill the vacant judgeship ; but the bar, nevertheless, were not called upon to express thuir sentiments in l'avor of any one they might consider suitable, it seemed to him, that the resolution as originally presented (by Mr. Ely) expressed, so far as he could judge, the sense oi the meeting ; at all events it reflected his own sentiments, and he hoped it would be adopted. The substitution proposed by Mr. Kmmett was tantamount to an a4jourmnent; the only ground to be assigned in its support was that the bar had been previously convened upon this subject, and that they had adjourned without appointing any committee, but rather that it was referred to a committee of the whole, which had here met again to express an opinion whether it was proper to act now or not. The resolution without the preamble was, therefare, preferable, in as much as it simply deolared it was inexpedient lor the bar to take action in this matter. He (referred much that the resolution without the preamble rhould be sent to the Executive. ( Mr. Au nmtroiu observed tn? me very r?e??r the s.r having done nothing, was the most conclusive reason for the insertion Qf tho preamble. It was important lor the Executive to understand that. Mr. McKeo.v understood that one object cfHie pieseat meeting was to enlighten the minds of tho Executive as to the.wishes of the bar upon the subject. And he now|asked for this information?whether there had not been an effort made to influence the decision of the Executive by a statement that the bar of New York had a preference, which preference they had expressed? Under the influence ol that representation it wus true the Executive might,very likely, be misled; and the gentlemen w ho had called together the present meeting, he presumed had convened it for the purpose of enabling the bar ol New York to set itself right before the President. As far as he (Mcl(eon) hail any kuowledge upon the subject the.barof the city of New York had not expressed any opinion what efforts, in every way, to influence the President in the choice of the new Judge; but he was sure that no opinion whatever had been expressed by the bar, a* a bar. Per hap* aoine individual* might have repreiented to the President that luch and luch a gentleman would he acceqitable to the bar?and he (McKeon) had no doubt that the bar of New Vork would approve ol the selection; but the fact was, that as a body, the bar had expressed no opinion, and in the present situation of the Question the bar, he presumed, would nat deem it right to give any expression of their opinion. The President would go on to make the nomination, the Senate, if they chose, would confirm it ; and upon them rested the responsibility of the selection?not upon the bar. Twenty or thirty lawyers at the bar of New Vork might be mentioned, any of whom would be acceptable upon the bench to the majority ot their brethren ; on the other hand there were others who would not, and could not be acceptable. On the whole, therefore, the proper course to pursue was that of non-interference, leaving it to the Executive, who had full information of the merits of the respective candidates. He repeated, that so far as the New Vork bar were concerned, they had expressed no judgment upon any candidate Either of the two motions he was willing to sustain ; but as there seemed to he some dispute about the fact, whether the bar had already expressed an opinion, he would suggest that the preparatory words proposed byMr. Emmett should be withdrawn so that the remaining portion might I>8 unanimously agreed to. Mr.Kcssr.noer called for the reading of the propositions before the meeting, for the double reason, that he was not present when they were proposed, and that all who were present might not understand them. The Chsihmar complied ; after which Mr. M'Keor said something about the previous question, which was inaudible to the reporter*. Judge Inulia here rose, and said it must not besirpposed that he had any personal feelings towards any of the can. didates for the vacant Judgeship, for he had none. A list of a dozen gentlemen had been named, any one of whom he believed would make a good Judge ; but no particular gentleman or gentlemen had hail a preference at the former meeting. It was on this subject he wished to disabuse the minds of parties. There was no preference expressed ; and on that account he was in favor of the preamble, as (proposed, being retained, if it should be considered right to adopt the original resolutiou.l Mr. Emmett said there were two things which ho should assume, in the discussion of this subject. The first was, that the bar of New York had not expressed a preference lor any of the candidates. Individual inemliera, probablv, might have intimated a personal preference, but as a body ?as that body which could properly be deemed the bar of New York?nothing had been done. The other circum stance he was authorized in assuming as a fact, was that at Washington it had been assumed that the bar of New York had such a preference?not. perhaps, from its having lieeu expressed in public meeting, although that also would probably be assumed; for if the Executive were daily told by individual iricDdn that Mr. Such-an-one was a favorite with the New York bar, and his appointment would he gratifying to the bar, it would eventually be assumed as the voice nf the bar, expi eased in the proper manner. He (Mr. Emmett) hail been tol l, indeed, the fact was so? that it was supposed at Washington the bar of New York were desirous that a certain individual (he would not name the individual?perhaps, indev I, he could not) would tie acceptable to them, they being desirous of his appointment, lie presumed it would be considered Inexpedient and wrong in every respect to permit this impression to remain unnoticed; it was, in fact, the duty of the New York bar to remove such an impression from the mind of the Executive, for the appointment would assuredly be ma le upon false premises ii it were assumed that the bar of New York would tie gratified by the appointment of any particular person, when in truth, if the sense of the bur were taken, it would probably be found very different from the impression of it at Washington, l'he object of the preamble to the resolution was to put the matter into a significant shape; it was not to express uny opinion?not to say "We are opposed to the ap]k>lntment of such a man"?or, "We approve of soother man"? or to designate any one candidate rather than another; it was merely to negative the assumption that the bar had, as a body, ever expressed any partiality, and as having particular reference to the existing impression at Washington. He deprecated very much any discussion in that meeting upon the relative merits of the respective candidates, lor it would produce nothing but ill-nature and bad

feeling among the members of the profession who were ' present, and lead to a state of things without, which there 1 was was no occasion for. ilehvi himself, as yet heard 1 no man mentioned as suitable, for whom, personally, he did not entertain the highest respect and esteem; but at the same time, if the question ware solemnly nut to him whether Mr. Such-an-one would be his favorite for | the office, he should be compelled, from a feeling of the duty he owed to the public, from regard to his own conscience, and from respect for the station in question, to I reply " No: he would not he my choice." He should not, however, like to lie called upon, in a public meeting, to r sot an example of this sort, nor did he think a majority of [ those present would require it, although It appeared that some gentlemen wen. very desirous of showing their hands upon it?(Laughter and cheers). Perhaps the best IRK 1 VIORNING, FEBRUARY ri mode to deal with the resolution, after all, wouhl be to i move a negative to it; then the bar would have done just I as much a< they ought to have done, and uothiog more. < Mr. Kiklu stated that he was present at the first meet- i ing of the Bar upon this subject, and therefore he knew what had taken place. There was a great difference of i opinion upon the <|ueation whether it was expedient for i the Bar to act at all; and it was in particular reference to ; that point that an adjournment was had tor the purpose of i holding a full meeting of the Bar, and obtaining an ex- i pressiou of their sentiments. But, although the meeting i was adjourned, he (Mr. Kield) wm or opinion that it wu not expcdiaut to nominate any particular person, he wai till of the tame opinion; but at the lame time he did not see, nor could he conceive, any reason for the expression which had .bean used, that the Bar had not a right to ex- < firess their opinions upon this matter?(Cheers). It beonged, he said, to the Bar. It was their ottice. They < knew more about the professional qualifications of the candidates than any other uody; they had also a greate> stake in the matter than any other class in the community; and it was therefore the right and the duty of the bar to express their conviction that no man should be appointed to the vacant seat upon the bench from party considerations, but solely upon account of his pre-eminent qualifications. (Cheers.) On all these grounds, he begged to move as an amendment?" Resolved, that the bar of New York, not deeming it to be within its province to propose a candidate for the judicial oltice now vucant, nevertheless deems it due to itself, as well as to the country, to declare its unanimous conviction, that the person appointed to the vacant place in the Supreme Court, should De not only pare end unsuspected, but foremost in his profession. Also, resolved, that in our judgment and opinion, the person appointed, owing his place to personal favor or party management, would greatly impair his usefulness among us, ?ud tend to lessen the dignity of the ottice in the uf es of the jieople." (Cheers.) Mr. TiiESDoai: Bbdowick seconded this amendment. Mr. I- lssic*0e.v aaid it was true that thenar of this city had not expressed an opinion, either for or against any (Articular candidate heretofore; but it seemed to him that the substituted resolutions now proposed, would carry moro to the ear of the public than It actually appeared to do upon the face of it. It would seem to signify that the bar of New York had assumed the appointment of one particular candidate. It carried the idea, that tho bar had not expressed an opinion unfavorable to any individual, whilst it might be asked whother particular members of the bar had expressed opinions prejudicial to somo or all of the candidates mentioned. It would signify that those gentlemen were entirely mistaken, und did not know their own minds, or il they did, that they had seen reason to change. Individual members of the bar. throughout tho State of New York might have their preferences ; some might be for one gentleman, some for another '. so that, under all the circumstances, he thought it would be Iwst to let the appointment be made upon Us own foundation, without any attempt' upon the part of the bar to act . in the matter, for as a body they would most certainly disagree. They could never agree upon any case, and he was satisfied there never could be a general expression of their opinion either in favor or against any one. Hence it was the part of pure wisdom on this occnsionto allow the original resolution, or the substituted resolution without the preamble, which meant the samo thing, to pass?and simply to do nothing upon the subject?(cheers). It was assumed that the bar ol New York were either in favor of or against an individual now beforo the public ; but there had Deen no such expression of opinion, and the individual venturing to make it, especially if addressed to gentlemen of intelligence,or the President,or any one in Washington, should know that such could not be the fact. Hence he (Mr Kesxenden,) had no doubt that private and individual preferences had been'cxpresxed by A. B. and C. in favor of all the candidates without any exception,according to the actual opinions of the parties. It appeared to him, therefore, that inch a course should be pursued as would adopt anil sustain the original resolution, and nothing else. Now, in the original resolution, (\lr. Fields,) wlint was meant by the word "foremost I"?(Cheers.) There was such a thing as being "ioremost" in public, office without being "ioremost" in point of fact. He (Mr.lFessenden) should wish to have thei"foremnst" man. taking all things into consideration, with reference to all his qualifications-, but if the word "foremost" was restiicted to his public situation, or to divers other particular qualifications?if qualifications they were?to them alone it might he that he stood "foremost," whilst, upon the whole he did not stand "foremost." Mr. Firlo?The words are "foremost In his profession." Mr. FESiRitnRi*?Very well?"foremost in his profession " That, perhaps, literally construed, was not a very good recommendation for a Judge?at least it was not in the better days of this republic. It was much better to pass the resolution which was originally proposed, and then the bar would appear not to be hostile to au> one. or in favor of any one, hut willing that the nomination should take its own course. Mr Brady was favorable to the resolution proposed by Mr. Ely, because it was a simple declaration that it was inexpedient for the bar, as a body, to recommend any particular person for the vacant oltice; and he thought the reasons very itrong by which he had arrived at this coniWiislon. Tn4 first amendment, whjch was suggested by jfcdge inglii.Otat Tne oar, as a bo?y, had not expressed ia preferences, seemed to be conceded Some of the gentlemen who advocated the prefatory part of the amendment, said , it was nacessuy to mnkuderlarations contained in it ?hut he (Mr. Craiiyf -mbmktoil that this htui been met, and that the motion of Mr. F.ly embodied all which the bar, as a body, wished to express. It was pretty clear, indeed,that the bar, as a body, had not expressed its opinion upon the subject of this appointment, lor there was no known and recognized channel of communication between the bur of New Yoik and the President of the United States, by which the preferences ol the New York liar could lie made regularly known. He (Mr. Brady) therefore, differ ed with Mr. Clinton De Witt. It was untrue, historically, that the bar expressed an opinion; it had none: and if any gentlnnan "foremost" or hindmost" had undertaken to say who would he their peculiar choice, he had mistaken their sentiments. On all grounds, he thought that a declaration of the inexpediency of avowing any preference would necessarily lead to the inference that the bar had not done it. Individually, he was in favor of Mr. Fields' resolution, as every sensible man must be, and he supposed that every one present deprecated the debasing and degrading system liy which, in modern times?an 1 in recent times, too?men had b?ru appointed to judicial stations in consequence of politics. Until that system could lie corrected we must he subjected to a great degree of? (some interruptions, both of applause anil laughter,caused the remaining part of the sentence to he lost) He repeated, that individually, he wan in favor of the resolution (Mr. Field'*), for it would be disgraceful i anottice so exalted as that ol a Judge should ue given away upon the same principle that you would nppoint a street sweeper, althougu, unfortunately, it had ton often l<een the case. But, at the same time, it implieil disrespect to the "resident and Senate to suggest to them that they might be induced by partv management to confer the present situation upon one whose merits and integrity did not entitle him to it. Such a species of censure, he thought, was implied in the resolution (Mr. Field's). His (Mr. Brady's) ^reat objection to give any reason for ihe want of specific action in the resolution, was, that the Bar was not sufficiently united to express any preference upon any subject. The Bar rrpresi-iitr 1 u class of men who?and they themselves also as a Bur - were separate otul distinct, and different from every other class in the world. They were the only set of men so destitute of the enni'l du caur, or so cowardly, if you please, that they could not be united upon any single iioint. Thev were the only set of men who saw their rights invaded and trampled upon, and attempts made to degrade them, without rising against the enemy; and it was notorious that when Judges had been songht to be removed from their stations who were entitled in every way to retain them, the general expression of opinion by the Bar had been prevented from no'other cause than'the fact of their not bring united, bet them, then, from this time henceforth, create a feeling of brotherhood among the members of the Bar; let their preference* be ascertained; and when a meeting was called to assist, as it was called, in the choice of a Judge, let it be their public expression of sentiment. But what was tho public sentiment of the bar of Now York In relation to this or any other question! In what munner, yet, had a bond of brotherhood been created among them/ By what means htifl thrv rr?*nta?fl that Hnor.i<>n nf rnninrx^ urhirli olmplv knit together the member* of every other occupation'? (Cheer*) It would be impossible and unjust for them to pretend that upon the question before them the bar had any deliberate sentiment, or that they had, as a body, any decided preference fur any candidate. He was, therefore, in favor of the original resolution without assigning any reason beyond the simple statement that it was inexpedient to proceed to any action. Mr. M'Kxoo said lie would make a motion which would tiring the matter to a (toint. There appeared to lie a preftv general impression that the bar, as a body, expressed no opinion, and inadti no recommendation, and with the view of testing the fact, he would move that all the resolutions and amendments lay upon the tnhle, which could be put without debate; after which a resolution would be proposed by a friend ofhis which would express the opinion of the whole meeting. This motion was soconded, and the aye* and noes being taken the (..hsirma* declared the resolution of Mr. M'Kron carried. Mr. Ei.v then re-proposod his resolution wh ich is given above. Mr. Si.dowicx said be should move the previous questions, which'among the brethren of the bar would not be debated lie agreed witli many of the remarks of his Iriend llrady, hut at the same time he must observe that there seemed to be remarknble distrust among the members of tlio bar as to their own duties and privileges in this matter. They would all admit that the President and Senate were not able of themselves, as a matter of course, to select the most proper person for the high judicial office now vacant ; nor was it by any means to be taken for granted, that the (executive had all the necessary in for mation to enable them to make the best appointment Where then should they look to but to the bar of the Circuit over which the Judgo was to bo appointed I Where could such witnesses'.he found of the qualification* of the candidates? And who should sneak, i( the bar did not? If the bar declared that they would sit in sullen alienee in a ease of this kind, had thoy any reason to complain if thoy found a most improper person appointed I For himsell he wa? very desirous that nothing disrespectful to the Executive should he done, and he would not take one step beyond the line of discretion, but tliore was sometimes discretion in courage He should be very glad to express hi* own opinion* in relation to the propriety of the candidates named for the office, and also to hear the opinions of others; but he did not knew why it should lie assumed that the bar bad expreased any opinion with reference to any of the candidates. How, indeed, was i to he determined f It was assumed to be so but there was no proof of it Could there he any posaible reason why the resolution should not declare the general character and qualifications which the incumbent of thia office should have? Could there be any harm in saying that it should be filled by a person of the highest character f Were the bar, of all men in the United States, to say , nothing upon this subject? He thought the bar ought to SERA r, 1844. tpeek, toil if they were not no prepared to apeak a* to ueme the peraon, let them apeak in general teiina aa to the character and qualihcatiuua which they thought the new iiicuuibcut ahouid poaaeaa. (Jen. HANoroau ahouid be in faror of the bar expreeaing Ita epinioua if theie waa theabghleat probability that the ntacaNtaa el that waald kait any weight wnii the appointing power; but they had found, upon many ocou nons, w lieu the bar had chosen to express au opinion,bow little it was regarded. He was lu favor ol the lesoluliou originally otteiud; but if it was rejected he would present a proposition lor appointing a committee of a dozen members oi the bar, to be appointed by the chair?lu whom they had pcilect confidence?who should select the uaines ol hall a dozen candidates,to he preeeuted to the President of the rmted States, with an expiession ol the opinion of the har, that they would be gratified by seeing any one of them nominated lor the vacancy u[>on the bench of the Supreme Court of the United States. He should be perfectly willing to abide by the decision of any committee the chair might appoint. Mr. C 1.1*1 ov IJk Witt obaeived, that a statement had been made ol u lamentable want of tipril du cetv among the members of the bar. Thia waa very true. They had also been asked to form a professional brotherhood at the present moment. This was very uecessary, hut when were they to begin ! Were they to begin when an improper candidate was likely to lie appointed, or when an excellent Judge was about to be turned out I Was not this the moment 7 No, it was said. Why, it waa this learol being mealy-mouthed which pi evented a proper degree of tipril ilu rtrur upon the subject. He hud no hesitation in saying that the nameaolsome four or five gentlemen were mentioned in connection with the appointment, uny one of whom he should consider a curse to, have placed upon the bench , and there were also, tlio names of some hull dozen gentlemen, any one of whom he should be highly pleased with. This, then, was just the time and place ior the caput du cam , in which the bar were said to he so lamentably deficient, to be manifested. He denied tliat there had not been any preference uiion the pert ol the bar; lour-Iilths, if the ballot were taken, would be found in favor of a single man. All he could say was, that having been in New York but u couple of days since the vacancy occurred, he had conversed with twenty gentlemen upon thejiubjoct, and he had not heard a difference of opinion among them all with respect to that man.? (Loud cries ol "Name?name." Why, it was Chancellor Walworth.?(Cheers.) His own prelurences?and he saw nothing invidious in mentioning their names to the meeting?were in iavorof Chancellor Walworth, Judge Nelson, or (Jeorge Wood ol this city.?(Cheers ) 11c moved, then, as an amendment upon the last resolutionResolved, That in the opinion of this meeting, the appointment of his Honor the Chancellor of this state, his iiunor the Chief Judge ot this Statu, or George Wood, ot" this city, to the vacant office, would be highly acceptable to thii bar.

Another Voice?And 1 second the notion ?(Cheers.) Mr. M'Keon rose to a point ol order. Mr. lie Witt could not more hia proposition as an amendment, because it was inconsistent with the whole terms of the original motion. It might lie upon the tableMr. Clinton Dr. Witt?An amendment to a resolution is always in order. (Cheers.) Mr. M'Kion?But it must be consistent with the motion it professes to amend. (Cheers.) The Chairmen- We have no rules or regulations, gentlemen, to govern the proceedings ol this meeting, but such as the chairman thinks lit to lay down, which must be observed unless overruled by the whole meeting. 1 say it is in orderto nraend this lesolution by striking out all the words alter the word "Resolved." (Cheers.) Mr. M'Keon?Very well, sir. Mr. Hillisun suggested that the introduction of any names in the resolutions might possibly lead to an inharmonious conclusion. Three gentlemen were named as the only persons who should he the choice of a considerable section ol the meeting. He would not proceed in the sumu vein and name other gentlemen, hut there cei tainly were many others whom the bar would be glad to see upou the bench The only point for consideration was, did the meeting agree to nominate any individual! If not, then the only proper resolution was, to taku no action. He was unwilling, however, that the sound truths in Mr. Field's resolution should bo passed by, fot although they were truisms, the President and Senate ought certainly to lie reminded ol thein, but he. did not wish lor any person to tie indirectly assailed by the proceedings of this meeting: and he liuceruly hoped that some one would be apjsiinted, Irom the fact ol his being the "foremost" in the profession. He was entirely in favor of the original resolution,which declined any action; hut if one person named three candidates, others would like to name three others.

The Executive, in point of fact, was in the dilheuity of having a great deal too much light from different lamps ti|>on this subject, it was enough to diatract the strongest mind to weigh properly in the balance the pretentions of the different candidates. He contended that the motion of Mr. Ely expressed all that could be wished U|K)n the subject ; and observed that if the meeting went on accumulating motion upon motion, and amendment upon amendment they would at last get in-oa marl. And if they expressed their satisfaction with individuals by name, his qualifications must be considered one by una. which might lead to a discussion till sunset. Mr. Hamii.ton moved an adjournment, which was seconded ; but Mr. Ely and others called for some definite resolution to be come to. Mr. MARauRr heartily supported the resolution of Mr. Me.Keon ; and after one or two others had made a lew remarks, the Chairman put the question of adjournment, which was lost.

He is brief, and declines being considered a candidate for the Presidency at the next election. WssHISOTOK, Jan. 'i, 104J. Gentlemen?I have received your letter, requeuing " permission to preient my uaiue to the People, as a Candidate for the uliicu of President of the United States, subject to the future wise, deliberate action of the Whig National Convention of 184a." It would be disingenuous to withhold an expression of the grateful feelings awakened by a letter, containing such a request, so very numerously signed, and coming from among those who have known mo through lifa. No one can be insensible to the distinction ot being regarded, byany respectable number ol his fellow.citizens,as among those from whom a choice ol President might he made, with honor and safely to the country. The ottice ol President is an office, the importance of which cannot be to highly estimated. He who tills it, necessarily exorcises a gieat influence, not only on all thu domestic interests ot the country, on its foreigu relations, and the sup)iort ol its honor and character among the nations of the earth, but on that, which is of tha very highest import to the happiness of the people, thu maintenance ol the Constitution itself, and the prosperous continuance of the government under it. Our systems are peculiar ; and while capable, as experience has shown, of producing the most lavorable results, under a wise and cautious administration, they are, nevertheless, exposed to peculiar daugets. We have six and twenty states, each possessing within itself powers of government, limited only by the Constitution ol the United rttaies ; acd we have a griicrnl government, to which are confided high trusts, to be exercised fur the benefit of the people of all the hiatus. It is obvious, that this division of powers, Itself the result c! a novel and most deiicata political operation, can be preserved only by the exercise of wisdom and pure patriotism. The Constitution of the United States stands on the basis of the people's choice. It mutt remain <>u that basis, so long as it remains at all. The veneration and love, which are entertained for it, will be increased, by every instance of wise, prudent, impartial and parental administration. On the other hand, they will be diminished by every administration, which shall cherish local divisions, devote itself to local interests, seak to bend the influence of the Ooverment to personal or partizun purposes, or which shall forget that all patriotism is false and spurious, which does not look with equal eye to the interests of the whole country, and all its parts, present and to come. I hardly know what an American statesman should ao much deprecate, on his own account, as well os on account of his country, as that the constitution of the United States, now the glory of our country and the admiration of the. world, should become weakened in its foundations, perverted in its principles, or fallen and sunk in a nation's regard and a nation's hopes,by hia own follies, errors or mistakes. The constitution was made for the good of the country?this the people know. Its faithful administratisn promotes thut good?this the people know. Tho |ieople will themselves defend it against all foreign power, and all open force; and they will rightfully hold to a just and solemn account, those to whose hands they commit it, and in whose hands it shall he found to he shorn of a single beam of its honor, or deprived of a particle of its capacity for usefulness. It was made for on honest people, anil they expect it to be honestly administered. At the present moment.it is an object of general respect, confidence and nffecticin Questions have arisen, however, and are likely to arise again,upon the extent of its powers or upon the line which separates the functions of the General Government from those of the State Government*; and these qustions will require, whenever they may occur, not only firmness, hut much discretion, prudence and impartiality in the Head of the National Executive. Extreme counsel* or extreme opinions on either side, would ho very likely, if followed or adopted, to break up tha well adjuited balance of the whole, And he who has the greatest confidence in his own Judgment,or the strongest reliance on his own good fortune, may yet be wall diffident of his ability to discharge the duties of this truat, la such a manner as shall promote the public prosperity, or advance his own reputation. hut, gentlemen, while the office of President is quite too high to lie sought by peisonal solicitation, or for private end* and objects, it is not to l>e declined if preferred by the voluntary desire of a free people. It is now more than thirty year* since you and your fellow citizens of New Hampshire, assigned me a part in |?litical affairs. My public conduct, since that period, ia known. My opinions on the great questions, now most interesting to tne country, are known. The constitutional principles which I have endeavored to maintain, are alio known. If these principle* and these opinion*, now not likely to be materially changed, ?hould recommend me to further mark* of public regard and confidence, I houhl not withhold myself from compliance with the generul will. But I have nj pretensions of my own to bring forward, and trust that no friends of mine would at any time uie my name for the purpose of preventing harmony amongthoae whom- general |>oIilicnl opiniona concur, or for any catiae whatever, but aronaeieniioui regard to the good of the countiy. It ia ohvioua. gentlemen, that at the present moment the tendency of opinion among those to he represented in the f onvention la gcne-alty and strongly set in another direction. I think it my dun , therefore, under existing circumstance*, to request tho<*. who may frel a preference for me, not to inoulgr in that preference, nor oppose any obstacle to the leading wi*he? of political friend* or to united and cordial effort* for the accomplishment of thote withe*. The election of the next antumu must involve, in general. the *?me principle*, and the iinw queationa, a* belonged to that of 1 A4*> The oan?e, I conceive to be the true oaueeof the country, ita permaaent prosperity: and all It* great inter**!*; the etui* of ita peace, and ita honor; the came of good government, true liberty, and tha piewrva'ion and integrity of the ( onititntion, and none should despair ol it* aiircct*.
