The Life of William Henry Harrison (of Ohio) the People's Candidate for the Presidency free pdf Excerpt from The Life of William Henry Harrison (of Ohio) The People's Candidate for the Presidency The citizens of a free republic are told to follow the example of tyrannical monarchies! to imitate them! to reduce the price of produce, of property, and of labour to one-fourth of what it has been, and to debase the condition of freemen to that of abject slaves! While seeking office, they bowed low to the people, and professed to he republicans of the purest school of democracy. Since they have attained their object, they have pursued unblushingly the most arbitrary measures, and have even dared to cite the example of foreign despotisms as good authority for their misdeeds. They have already seized upon the public purse, in their practical anticipation of their favourite scheme, the Sub-Treasury, and have endeavoured to grasp the sword of the nation by their new Militia System, as proposed and urged by the Secretary of War, and as recommended by the Chief Executive in his last annual message to congress- - an iniquitous attempt to raise a standing army of 200,000 men - 100,000 of whom should be drafted and called into service whenever the president chose to order them out, and should be under his control, and subject to such regulations us he might see fit to prescribe. The celebrated historian of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, says: "In whatever State an individual unites in his person the execution of the laws, the command of the army, and the management of the revenue, that State may be termed a monarchy." Has not this administration aimed at a monarchy then? Does it not possess "the execution of the laws !" Has it not pursued its infamous Sub-Treasury scheme, though thrice rejected by the people, until it has acquired an absolute control over "the management of the revenue!" And has it not taken cunningly devised steps to obtain "the command of the army!" And had it succeeded in all its wild and reckless attempts, would it not have converted our free government into a despotism in fact, even were it suffered still to retain a republican name! But, happily, this monstrous scheme of grasping ambition has failed. Our noble country, whose freedom was purchased by the wisdom and valour of our patriotic sires, is not yet doomed to become the prey of a designing despot, whose sole endeavour, since his election to office, has been, not to promote the welfare of the people, but to perpetuate his own power, to pamper and reward his unscrupulous partisans, and to humble the labouring classes of his fellow-citizens to the miserable condition of European serfs. Of these facts the people are now aware. They have been too long deluded by specious pretences and flattering hopes, and are at length aroused to a just sense of the injuries that have been heaped upon them by the evil measures and corrupt policy of this administration, and have determined to redress their wrongs. The political position of our country, as it now exists, presents a very singular anomaly. It can scarcely be said that party is now striving with party for the ascendancy- but rather that the people, the great mass of the people, of all parties and all conditions, have united in opposition to the drilled ranks of the administration office-holders, and their host of hired and subservient myrmidons - and not for the purpose of regaining their power merely, but for the welfare, almost the existence of their country as a free republic, and for the preservation of her most cherished institutions. The people, before whom all tyrants tremble, have arisen in their majesty to assert their independence, and to shake off the iron fetters which they had almost suffered to be riveted upon them.
