Excerpt from Short Answers to Reckless Fabrications: Against the Democratic Candidate for President

Buchanan, with the single remark that, with such a refutation as we now present, no one can repeat the slander without knowingly giving currency to a falsehood:

From the Harrisburg (Pa.) Reporter.]

We observe by the report of Congressional proceedings, in the National Intelligencer, of March 30th, that on the previous Friday evening, our Senator Buchanan was assailed by Mr. Morgan, of New York, and Mr. Cooper, of Pennsylvania, upon the floor of the House of Representatives, with the charge of once having said, in a 4th of July oration, "that if he thought he had one drop of Democratic blood in his veins, he would let it out." This charge was promptly contradicted by Messrs. Ramsey and General Keim, of the Pennsylvania delegation.

It is not our intention, at present, to make any comments upon this ridiculous story, which first originated in 1828, immediately preceding Mr. Buchanan's fifth election to Congress, but merely to re-publish the letter of that gentleman to the editor af the Pennsylvania Inquirer and Courier, dated February 27, 1838, contradicting the charge so explicitly and unequivocally, as to silence the slander, it was supposed, forever. This letter was elicited by a similar charge, made in debate by Mr. Cox, a member of the Convention for amending the Constitution of Pennsylvania, in May, 1837. It was then promptly repelled, before the Convention, by the present Judge Porter and Emanuel C. Reigart, both members of that body - the first a prominent Democrat, and the latter one of the anti-Masonic party in Pennsylvania. Had this sentiment, or anything like it, ever been uttered by Mr. Buchanan at a "political meeting in the court-house in Lancaster," these two gentlemen, from their position and character, must either have heard it themselves, or immediately heard it from others; both of them being residents of that city when it was alleged to have been uttered, and Mr. Reigart, residing there ever since.

The charge would have specially attracted public attention at that time, as Mr. Buchanan was a successful candidate for the State Legislature both in October, 1814, and October, 1815.

Mr. Cox, not satisfied with the contradiction of Mr. Porter and Mr. Reigart, endeavored to obtain proof of the charge, and renewed, in a letter to the editor of the Pennsylvania Inquirer and Courier, dated February 24, and published in that paper of February 26, 1838, the testimony which he then adduced in support of it, and all which could be collected after a laborious search, consists of the certificate of a certain Anthony M'Glinn, and an extract of a letter from George Ford, Jr., both of which, it will be perceived, are referred to in the following letter of Mr. Buchanan:

To the Editor of the Pennsylvania Inquirer and Courier: Washington City, February 27, 1838.
