More than a year has elapsed since the present administration were inducted into office: a session of Congress has been held: and a party has been formed evincing a determination to make a systematic opposition to the government. A period has therefore arrived, when it is proper, nay, our duty as freemen, to go into an examination of the course which has thus far been pursued by the administration, and also of the motives and conduct of the party in opposition. Such an examination may enable us to determine whether we are bound to support and give strength to the former, or to enlist under the banners of the latter.
But it may not be improper, in the first place, to make a few remarks in relation to the late presidential election, and the formation of the cabinet. Correct opinions on these subjects are important, and may assist us in forming correct opinions on others.
At an early period, many candidates for the highest office in this republic were brought forward. Honorable as it was to our country, that it contained so many distinguished citizens and statesmen, it was yet unfavorable to the repose of society, that their qualifications and merits were, at the same time, urged with so much zeal, by their respective supporters. Of those who had been proposed for consideration, public sentiment, in the progress of the discussions, designated four as the ablest and most deserving: Mr. Crawford, whose agreeable manners and respectable talents had raised him to high and important stations: Gen. Jackson, whose brilliant achievements in the last war, had encircled his name, and that of his grateful country, with unfading glory: Mr. Clay, justly admired for his persuasive eloquence, and distinguished, before all others, for his warm devotion to republican principles: and Mr. Adams, employed from his youth in the service of his country, surpassed by no one in talent, and by no one in attachment to the country, he had so long and so faithfully served.
