The Kentucky Democrat reviews the roster of Democratic and Whig presidential candidates He defends the honor of his fellow Kentuckian, William O Butler, as a man of principle; and pays his respects to Senator Cass of Michigan. "It is our custom in the State of Kentucky to defend and honor all our worthy public men." Breckinridge arraigns President Fillmore, pronouncing him unfit for the presidency because his public record favors abolishing the slave trade. Included here are Resolutions of the Kentucky Democratic Convention, adopted at Frankfort, January 8, 1852, declaring their support for a government of strictly construed, enumerated powers; denying any power in the government to interfere with slavery, or to prohibit slave owners from settling with their slaves in the Territories; and commending their favorite son, Butler, as the Democratic nominee for the presidency.
