H e?t?d ne th*t 1 ought with grrat reluctance to in trude mys'lf upon a New York null unco, aa Indeed I do I ocmn rot here to plead fjr mysrlf, or to se?k applaus* from yon ot my own behalf. I present myself before yon as n simple individual, backed by no party, animated only by b ? ?! for lha good of my oountry, to sp?ak in behalf of that pi Ti^na old soldier whoae iwuie ond fame tare hern the aignal for oalHng ur togrthrr this uUbt (Great applauae) From my fwliert youth I hove b>?n attached to tbe whig parry. Not that all my opinions burs always bf?-n fu'ly and adequately r?pr?auted by all the avowad op> a of tbat purty. but I *v*r votod with it, gaye it my feeble snrpurt and ardently always wlsh?d for it* success, knowing and filing that in matters of party it l/> beat t-. buuoltsd with tbe purest?with that which comra nearest to our own views of right, and which has most a< h?art the welfare of the country; wbilo at tbe same Mmi# ic la necessary to yield something of our own onlnloca for the sake of the benefit of oar bslovel oountry. It may. perhaps, ba known to aoma of yoa that in the late whig convention of Kentucky, General Tailor had the limn support for thn nomination te the Pretidriio} aa wa? given to another distinguished candi date That convention supported Oonerai Taylor aa a wh?g?not, indeed, an ultra whig, butaa deeming hlra to ba the baat, the most available, the moat honest the trnest man whom they could select. (Applause) Hum mo an I am. y*t my re*r>]n efforts, ai<l?d by other*, h? prd to nurry the m?joritT of tbe party In that Statu in faror of tr?n?ral Taylor, wni to l?n<i to the nomination of tbat ulctiaguirhed hero 1 J il nnt th*u dsnonnce otherf in Vro"cl-imlng my preference for him, no* do I cema here now with my Intention of denouncing other Indiviriuhlr; but I claim. aDd all I demand is, that which Is thorl*ht of every freeman, via :?Froedom of thought and opinion, and freedom to utter my thought* und opiuloof boldly and freely. (Great applaime) Yes, atr. ween the freedom of speaking and writing one's thought* has at length penetrated eren to the dork r?oey*es of Amtrlii. I cannot believe that the tarnfrerdem will not b* granted and aokuowledged in free Aoierloa. I, therefore, oome boldly btfora the oitlssns of this great repuMlo. and claim their attention in peeking on the subjaot of tbe oandidate for the next I'reMdrnoy. When last I bad the honor of addresclng you it wiio i tbe quaation of tbe annexation of Texas to oeir Union. But now other and different i?fu?a are bol.u-e tb" oouniry. Latu* turn our attention for a moment to Icqtrre among the old ixsuos which lately divided tbe country, what now ia the only and xe<tl iMtM which we have to eonsider Id pace days the party question* and issues have been. Vbo question of the land bill, that of the tariff.the bank, and the question ol internal improvement*. Except, p?rhaps, upon tbe latter, on which they were <*iviled among themselves, the democratic party bac been *g*lDit all these qnestlons. It is no: my Intention now t? discuss any ona of than; but I shall be per ni'.teil to say that they hava become, at best, the greater part cf them, "obsolete ideas " Os th* greatest ol them, which mo>t of all at one time agitated the country, 1 am only qaotlng one of tbe greatest and ablest of our stateswen, when 1 call tbe bank question an '"obioleto idea" On these quest lorn, now, parties are united n*d amalgamated; they have erased to be ol jacts of political contention; the question of Internal improvement, may b* considered a national question; and therefore, in fact, the only great issue, the only great question, before the country, is the great principle of human liberty whioli has reoently taken a new and vigorous rtart in the old oountrlM ol Europe I stand, myself, in u somewhat pasuliar attitude as to both the parties whlca divide the opinions of our country. I went against tbe annexation of Texas, when the question was before the country. But when It wai ivrmiuated, and when tbe war oommenoed, I took my sttad between the parties; opposed originally to the policy which led to the war, when ic burst forth, 1 hesita'ed not, but joined my aountry, right or wrong, and ropportcJ the war againit the common raemv. (Ad p'aus*) For tbii I bar* bean denounced?for tbia 1 have fce'B attacked, bacaaae I have not continued to Ml with tuasa who denounce the noble deedi of our armies, and par alias the arm* of the oouutry by giving oounte nanon and support to its foe*. 1 hare aoted in obedience to tbe theory of our republican institution*, and that w, that the majority should rule; and if thia principle of our government be not fol lowed and acted upon, anarchy and our politioal ruin must be the conaequenoe. When, therefore, tbe oonn try ia engaged in war, in flagrant war, fl grante btlUwhen the bieod ef our fellow eountrymeu ia being abedthen Is not tbe time for party to oppose tbe will of the in joiity, and stand aloof in the dangers of the oountry; tut on the contrary, then it Is tbe duty of every patriot to put bii aboulder to tbe wheel, to aid. to support, to fl,.ht for bia oountry. and to burr in oblivion all his ob j-ctlons, which he might btfore have had to tbe leading osuaes cf tha war (Rapturous applause) In tola epit it. and in tfcia rww, I aeted. This was my patriotism ?and in proof it, I devoted myself to danger, to toil, to prison, to cruelty, and inoareeration. (Great applause ) So far, than, is Uaaerat Taylor concerned. So far as I am concerned, I am wllliug to stand on that basis I believe, with a cr-at portion ef that patty aad other parties in tbis Ution, the annexation of Texas was illegal and unconstitutional. In taking Texia into the States, I say an unconstitutional aotwaa committed ? There w*a Another law, too. violated in it We had a treaty existing between the United States and Texas, and common sense told us, as did Sam Houston tbat while w?r was raging between Texas sad Mexloo. If we took Texas we also took the war In the third plaoe, tha vrincipln of an equality ot representation was violated,for a mau coming from Texas, and owning a hundred slaves exerciser an undue representation ovar the States of tbe North. You bere, are allowed but one vote; tut a man o*niiiR a hundred slaves oan cast sixty one. That it unt-qual representation-a prlnoiple against wbiob onr faihtrs fought, and which was violated in the annexa tion of Texas. Again, in the unequal representation, independent of the black basis, the constitution waa vio at'fl in the annexation ef Texan Again, the prlnoiple of liberty and law waa violated by the presidential net Although you may say, by taking Texas we beoume pirtv to the war, and Mexloo bad a pet lect right to defend oer.elf: yet if we bad not become ti<e aggrra sore,the matter oould bave been settled But instexd ol that, Mr. Polk ssnt an army beyond any limit* of Texas tbat could be claimed. It was not pretended tbat there was anv risbt to Texas but that of corianeat. and th ? fTTi ail not extend bfjomi the Naecea lu ruarohirg en army b?yoiid tfat, and pltntlug onn OS OB IN Rio Grand*, we mode an aggressive attack on the Me xicans, beoanse we want b?yond the border ol Texas, tupposlng even she w*f independent, and wee rightfully admitted Into the Uiiioc I s?y, therefore the deiuooratio party now in power violated theee great principle, and of course in determining wbo should Oil the offlco of President thee* things should hi borne in mind If the President in power onn be shown to have done all these things, 1 do say that he should be foreed oat, and another put in who will net according to the constitution General Taylor is that mau. It seems to me the administration should be held responsible for this and slso for th* asi-ere'ile manner In which the war w?s conducted after it wrb comraenosd Genersl Taylor wss ordered to thi Rio Grande wbile there war a large i>rce opposed to bin When ws heard the news that he was surrounded and oat off from his commanloations with Point Isabsl, we almost believed that oar amy w?? destroyed, and the v*ry administration that ordered him there, prepared Itself to throw the responsibility f r th? defeat tliey bid anticipated be met with on himself; but Mr. Crit'*udtn said, gentlemen, General Tayicr Kill b* victorious, and th* news afterwards rei.eived proved that he was right Aft*r th* battle of Palo Alto, it would have been supposed that the ad ministration wsutd hare taken plans for tha future, but the battle of the eighth of May wa? not followed np until h'ptrmhtr, when the battle of Monterey was fought a? tinit tremendous odds. In that light he ha 1 only four ihounand troops to attack a well fortified city, and after n most serere and arduous fight of three days, General TwyUr w-?s again victorious, and an enemy ot ten thonsaad surrendered to one ol tour thousand (Applause.) What dn w? And ag<tln ? A general who in other oonntr. p wuld be promoted i<s far as government ceuld do it, w)io a. uld be thsnked for all he had done, w?* denounced for cementing to a capitulation, because he dl< nst hi 1 tbreo or four thousand more men, and that too uf er clai-in* blm in these straits-be*nn?? he did not nciitice tho rtm?inder of his army.

Tijere wan a general left in an eneJO) '? country by tho President of the United Stated, with mi army of four thouaind seven hundred man, bsforc an army of twenty thousand, offlrered by on* of the ablest K 'noraU of the age, or at least by the ablest which Mexico afTjrded. On that ccoailon, ha reoalved a 1 otter from Gen. Scott, who acted nil tha organ of the n tmU tstratlon, withdrawing from him his forces, to which he made his celebrated anawer. Mv. Clay then r?ad Gsn. Taylor's letter, in whioh he said he feared the ronfldeune of the ailmlalatration waa withdrawn from biro, but he w is determined to do his duty, which latter is familiar to tha public, and need not be repeated hereIfon may talk of military commanders?you may say you do not want a maro aaldiar. General Taylor haa proved himself In t'ie painful position in which he was (laced by tho Icjusiloe of the government, more by fnr than a m'ra sol>il?r. Where In all history will you find mi etn.i, le o> firmness <1 'termination and selfralianoe, grra>r than that exhibited by the brave old man when tio *<i? thus left, abandoned, aaoriflsed by bis government, and all hia fo cea taken away from him? i felt the 'ru h of thii position. I felt when I lay in a din^on, In wretchedness and solitude, among i*rolti and nil the >uff-ring? of the moat cruel I'l l ii-;onkieut then, inde d I f?lt how the brave old geiilnr.Jall who were 1? ft witu him bad buen cruelly ' rr-floi il by ihe g1 V?mqjrni Of the United Rtatrs I I- it d'S'ioy weil as the brave old hero, by this r.ondpot of tha government. I trembled fat the eons* q a* boos, x i e' ne NI bat, (bank God. my hopes reiived ; we were aaved by the vigor. talent. and self-reliance of General Taylor, when at Buena Vi*ta be d?f?ated Santa Anns with hi* ho t of altvos at b!a baok. and than averted the ruin ahieh the conduct of the government had prepared for all of a*. Then it wai General Taylor evinced a prudence a selt-rellanae, and virtue, equal to W?*blniton himself. then Lo nobly triumpned on th? plain* of Buroa Vis?a, with the soldier citiz?na who remained at bla aide; and who i roved themselves equal to the bsst of troop* under auch a commander. (Great applease ) Yes, sir. Gen Taylor has proved himself morn then a mere military man; b?h%s shown the oivil qualities, talents and power* of the great civilian and st*tes>nan in all hi* course end conduct. It wa* tor this reason the government a'ripped him of hia troops, and left him destitute and exposed to almost certain ruin H? was become ton great a man for them, and therefore tbey brought forward Gin Scott. And h?, too, soon btcame too groat a man for tham And how did they reward him ? In the eame way they Jrewarded General Taylor, with ignominy, diigr .ce and oontempt! After the victories of Vera Crua, of Cerro Gordo?after a ? triumphant entry into the oity of Mexico, ' e was r*>oomp-nted with Insult and oontrmpt?disgraced, iu* pendi'd, and tried, in the ??ry faoe of the fotmy whom he had vanquished. (Crl?e of " ihame " l,sbaroe") Thle great U?netil, who, next to Gsneral Taylor. hi? shown himself the greatest of the age, was rewarded with the eama treatment given to the noble old h-ro of Buena Vista. And sine* the government of th? oonn r> haa thus disgraoed itself by such oonduct to this brave awn, I hope the whig party will take bisrewurd in its own bind and recompense him for the tr*atm*nt he bas received,aod tbe servioa hn has done hi* country by tni* <'ig iilm to the Presidential chair lnl84U (Load applause ) Fur 44 years lorg he bss been mgsged In serving ble eouuiry, and he bas dope her signal service At Port Har?lsoa with IS men only he met no oie kniws how many Indian*,whose whole army was opposed to hlin,aud who had spread terror and desolat ion m * he laud, he conquered. In Florida,again, when despair hovored over that unfortunate oamp?ign, he oome.Mnl by a single victory. whipped the Indlto* and put an end to tbe dls?strout war. Thus he haa alibis lif>>, and now he is 03 years old. bean ever engaged in performing aeti of useful servloe for hiaoouuiiy He < not a party man. he bas not pas*?d his years in party intrigues and party oenteats; and 1 rrjolce at it?I am glad of It; 1 am glad that we have at last thi proapsot of having a fresh man, one who, If I may so say, has not piostltntod himself in a long course of years to party objects, party ambition, and party servloes. He is free from ail suoh trammel'; ho take* Washiugton aa his guide, and tbe good of his conntry at large aa the polar star of bis policy and conduct. (Great applause ) It bas liean objected against General Taylor that he is no party maa. Let us exam ine this question. If it be found that he is a time server, a plaoe hunter, a truckling politician, I am oppoaed to him; bat if he is a no party man. ao fur as he has no concealments, I am for him. After achieving tbese extraordinary vlocorles, he rises up without a rival in the yffsotlooaof the people, and was voted a candidate by all parties The moat ultra whig presses of (he South aaid that he most not be nominated as a party maa. Let him. Bald the Ntw Orleant Picayune, be the candidate ?f the country. Under tbla view, General Taylor vary naturally said he would attempt, if eleoted, to ad minister thn government on constitutional principles. But did be mate* any Attempt to oonceal or bold back? No. Will* hi Rave a plcdgo In this way, he raid he was a whig, but not an ultra whig In not that enough? Do you not want a man who would nlvocato the rights of the mlaority aa well aa those of the m?jority. If you want such a man, General Taylor ia he. If yon want a man who believes that the spoils belong to the viotors. that the government was made for the President, and not the Prestdeut for the people, you must take aome other man than General Taylor, tor he will not plsy the part of a paitlcan. But, aay a portion of the whig party, how Is he on auoh and euoh measured Aa 1 aatd before, two of them are obaolete. The tariff question by the necessity o( the oase, ia at rest; and on that ther? osnnot be mueh difference of opnion With regard to intern?i;improvements,without designing to apeak for General Taylor, I bsliaves he agreei with the majority of the people, on tbe neceralty and constitutionally of Internal improvements. On this ground, then, there ia no difference of opinion, why ia it then that these men can't take him. Slavery th"n ean be tbe only queatlon between the parties; sal on that queation we find tbe whlgs and democrats divided, whole States taking different aides Oa thle subject 1 know nothing ef General Taylor's opinions. Permit me, however, to say, that I am satisfied to take him as he Is. He iajs he will follow tbe example of Washington?he will bow to the people?that Washington weuld be his guide What may i infer from that? Washington was an anti slavery man Go to the records and you will see it. The men who were srouna him earned out the crdloanoe of 1789, that slavery should not exist. He went further, and eaid that ho would give his vote against it. I, therefore, say that General Taylor oannot consent that in new territory black slavery shall exist to shut out ths emigration ?t whites from the free States. I know a portion of tbe North attempt to create a prejudice sgqlust General Taylor on tbe ground that he ia a pro-slavery man. 1 ueny It. 1 say that tbe strength whioh he possesses in the South and Southwest, Is entirely independent of that question. They hare taken hloi up there from the highest principles of gratitude ?because he was oppressed by the government of tbe United States?beoause an attempt was made to cheok his popularity?beoause he protected tbrm and their families. It is the war sympathy which sustains him. nd not pro-slavery sentiments. They felt with General Taylor, that while tbe war was goiog on, every mac tnoaia put nts snomaer to tne wu?ei raey nave no eyrapathy with the n>?n, who, while the blood of their fellow-oltizsns w*a flowing, donounced them and the war and gave oountenanoe to the ent my. I have run over the principal issue* which 1 conceive are involved in the next Presidential canvass As 1 said before, 1 do -not belisva thm any man can b^elee'.od without snmo degree of party organisation. Tha friend* of Gen Tay ior will be compelled to throw their votes fo some one of tho regular nominees. I have been invited to address my fellow citizen*, and I have done so, an 1 I would go to Tammany Hall if invited If I can bring the people to believe with me that there ought to be a change, and that General Taylor is the man to All the Presidency, 1 will try to persuade them to fleet him. General Taylor .* not a mere soldier. He Is in every sense of the word > mil. I have heard since I oame to this city, that if he were elected he would not conduct the Presidency witn dignity ; that he had no polish ; that he Lad not the ad dress which should belong to the Chief Magistrate of th? United States. But what kind of an argument Is tnis to be pnt forth in a repnbiie ? He doe* not dress so fleely as some of thi politicians of the country do; but he ha* the sentiment* tf true re*poo'ablllty, which rate a man aooording to hla merit*, and not according to the out of his coat. Althrugh he drinks coff?e out of a tin oup, read his letter* and see if be has not a classical mind Ask those who have seen him, what they say oi aim?if he i* not a true gentleman. All who as looiete with him come away with feelings of 1 love towards bim; and I would b? uijust to myself to deny that one great resaon wry I go for Mm is, boanse I love him -because he la a man and a g?n?i<v man Halsronsh: but he I* roadv?the areat mats or the people *r? r< ugh. but if you look abroid you will we (but there la In tbe breasts of the rough men as much patriotism, good feeling and tru* gentility aa there la In tbe couria uud pulacss of foreign couatrl?a It he U nil a gentleman, then tilts great inaae ot the people are nor gentlemen But you will sympathise with him, and teach thoaa who think bo la not a gantleman, tha* in tbla eountry to be a true man la tba teat of merit; and in all time to come let them t*ka oouraje that he who la true and honest, will rsoeive the highest rswsrde of the oountry.
