Kearney says, "Mr. Van Buren presides with dignity in the Senate." Thinks different than most of his friends about Van Buren. Has confidence his administration "will be an able one" and respect the feelings of the community. Cites his opposing extending the "Election Franchise to all the vagrant Irish" and the "Safety Fund System as favorable to Van Buren & says he "has always been a supporter of the Judiciary" and " is not opposed to a U.S. Bank."
