May 24, 1844

Mr. Frelinghuysen.

          The Newark Daily Advertiser, after responding in the warmest terms, to the Whig nomination, gives the following sketch of Mr. Frelinghuysen: He is descended from the Rev. Theodorus J. Frelinghuysen, who imigrated to this country from Holland in 1720 and settled in the county of Somerset. He had the pastoral charge of the Church at Millstone, and of other neighboring parishes. He is said to have been "a great blessing to the Reformed Dutch Church of America." He was an able, evangelical, and eminently successful preacher. He left five sons, ministers, and two daughters married to ministers. One of his sons, the Rev. John Frelinghuysen; was also pastor of the same church, and died in 1754. A monument still remains to his memory in the grave yard at Somerville. His son, Gen. Frederick Frelinghuysen, (the father of the present Chancellor) was born in 1753, and when only 22 years old was sent by New Jersey to the continental Congress -- which placed he resigned in 1777. He received a large share of the confidence of his fellow citizens, and after serving in many state offices, was elected to the United States Senate in 1793, which domestic duties constrained him to resign in 1796. He was afterwards appointed Major General of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and rendered important military services to his country. He ranked among the ablest and purest citizens of his State and died in 1804, beloved and lamented by his country and his friends. He left three sons, of whom Theodore, (the candidate for the Vice Presidency) only survives.
        He was born at Millstone, Somerset co. in this State, in 1787 — and is consequently fifty-seven years of age. — He graduated at Princeton College in 1804. The Hon Samuel L. Southard, Thomas H. Crawford, George Chambers, Jos. R. Ingersoll and President Lindsley, of Nashville University, were among his classmates. He studied law with the late Richard Stockton, and was admitted to practice in 1808. He soon distinguished himself at the bar, and about 1814 was appointed Prosecutor of the Pleas for Sussex co, and in 1817, to be Attorney General of the State — an office for which he was eminently qualified, and the duties of which he fulfilled for a space of 12 years, with distinguished ability. It is said that the character which he had then acquired for integrity, and his fervid eloquence, enabled him to exercise an almost unlimited sway over the Juries which he was called upon to address. In 1826 he was elected to a seat upon the bench of the Supreme Court, vacated by the resignation of Judge Russell, which he declined. He continued to act as Attorney General until 1829, when he was elected to the Senate of the United States. His course, during the six years he occupied a seat in that body, is known to the country at large. In 1839 he was elected to preside as Chancellor over the University of the city of New Y. which station he now occupies.
        We might here conclude, but we cannot refrain from saying that this nomination will give great gratification to the Whigs of New Jersey. As a citizen, he is one whom the State has always delighted to honor — and as a politician, he has always steadfastly maintained and advocated the principles of the Whig party. In private life, he exhibits the suavity and amenity of manner, the kindness of heart and the benevolence of disposition, of a Christian. He brings to the discharge of all his duties soundness of judgment, steadiness of purpose and habits and principles of the strictest integrity. — His views are liberal and enlightened; he is beyond the control of mere selfish or partisan influence — and to no one could the great interests of the country be more safely entrusted.
        Grateful for the honor conferred upon her by the nomination, the Whigs New Jersey pledge to their fellow Whigs throughout the Union their most untiring efforts for the maintenance of whig principles -- and the next Electoral vote of the state for HENRY CLAY and THEODORE FRELINGHUYSEN.
        The Baltimore Correspondent of the Philadelphia North American, thus speaks of the Whig candidate for the Vice Presidency.
        Mr. FRELINGHUYSEN is the son of a Revolutionary patriot, soldier and statesman, whose biography is part of the history of his own State especially.

CYCLOPEDIA OF AMERICAN BIOGRAPHY, edited by James G. Wilson and John Fiske, volume 2, New York, 1872, pages 543-544:


        Theodore, lawyer, b, in Franklin, Somerset co., N. J., 28 March, 1787; d. in New Brunswick, N. J., 12 April, 1861, was sent at the age of eleven to the grammar-school connected with Queen's college (now Rutgers), where he remained two years, but, on the resignation of the rector of the school, returned to his home at Millstone. Having no great disposition to apply himself to study, he persuaded his father to give him the privilege of remaining at home and becoming a farmer. But consent to this plan had been only partially obtained when his lather was called away on public business. His step-mother, a wise and estimable woman, believing that this arrangement would not be a judicious one, packed young Theodore's trunk and sent him to the classical academy recently established at Baskingridge, N. J., by the Rev. Dr. Robert Finley. Here he completed his preparatory studies, and in 1802 was admitted to the junior class of the College of New Jersey, at Princeton, from which he was graduated with high honors in 1804. In the mean time, his father having died, his elder brother, John, a lawyer, had taken charge of the homestead at Millstone. In the office of this brother he began the study of law, and, after being admitted to the bar, removed to Newark, N.J., where he married, and entered upon the practice of his profession, in which he soon attained eminence. In 1817 he was appointed attorney-general by a legislature whose majority was opposed to him in politics. Twice afterward he was reappointed on the expiration of his term of office, and finally resigned it in 1829, having been elected a senator of the United States. Prior to this, however, he had declined the office of justice of the supreme court, tendered to him in 1826. The first important matter on which he addressed the senate was the bill for the removal of the Indians beyond the Mississippi river. This speech availed nothing, however, except to bring its author prominently before the nation, and to give to him the title of the "Christian statesman."

        He also took an active part in the discussion of the pension bill, the president's protest, the removal of the deposits from the U.S. bank, the compromise, and the tariff. His senatorial term expired in 1835, when he resumed his professional labors in Newark. In 1836 Newark was incorporated as a city. In the following year Mr. Frelinghuysen was elected its mayor, and in 1838 he was re-elected to the same position. In 1839 he was unanimously chosen chancellor of the University of New York, and while in the occupancy of this office was, in May, 1844, nominated by the Whig national convention at Baltimore for the vice-presidency of the United States on the same ticket with Henry Clay. He continued in the discharge of his duties as chancellor of the university until 1850, when he accepted the presidency of Rutgers college, and in the same year was formally inducted into that office, continuing in it until the day of his death. Mr. Frelinghuysen was an earnest advocate of the claims of organized Christian benevolence, and it is said of him that no American layman was ever associated with so many great national organizations of religion and charity. He was president of no less than three of' these during some period of their existence, while his name may be found on the lists of officers of all the rest with scarcely an exception. For sixteen years he was president of the American board of commissioners for foreign missions. From April, 1846, till his death he was president of the American Bible society; from 1842 till 1848, of the American tract society; from 1826 till near the close of his life, vice-president of the American Sunday-school union; and for many years vice-president of the American colonization society. In the work of all these institutions he took an active part. His remains were buried in the grounds of the 1st Reformed Dutch church in New Brunswick, N.J. See a memoir of him by Rev. Talbot W. Chambers, D.D. (1863).
