The whigs now found them*
selyee in possesion of the three
cardinal branches of the gov-
ernment, lor the fint time, and
the democrats had met the op-
position of a majority of the
people for the first tine in forty
years. The whigs believed
themselves in a position to ful-
ly introduce their policy in the
administration of the govern-
ment Gen. Harrison was in-
augerated president on March
4th 1841. Bnt lived only about
one month after his installment
into office, and the duties of
president devolved upon John
Tyler. In the following winter
congress made an attempt to
carry out the policy of the
whig party. Clay framed a
national bank bill whieli was
passed by both houses of con-
gress only to meet the veto of
the president A second bill
framed to meet his objection
met the same fate. This ac-
tion on the part of the president
caused the greatest indignation
on the part ot the whigs. Ty-
ler was denounced as a rene-
gade and "a democrat in dis-

The American people thus
sanctioned the policy of annex-
ation, and upon the ^assemb-
ling of congress the bill admit-
ting Texas into the union was
passed and received president
Tyler's signature a short time
before his retiement from office.
President Polk was inauger-
ated on March 4th 1845 and the
democratic party again as*
earned control of the govern-
ment in all of its branches.
The principal eyent which
marked the administration of
president Polk, was the war
with Mexico in 1846-47, in
which the American armies un-
der Generals Taylor and Scott,
won a series of the most bril-
liant victories in mode&n histo-
ry. By reason of these great
military victories the vast area

was owing entirely to the split
in the demeoiatio party, and
upon assuming the duties of
his office, he was met by an op-
position majority in both hous-
