Burlington, A tig. 11, 183G IS MR. VAN NKSS COMING IIOMK? " 'I'on my wind il is tri.o ! What Ml jo l.iy it's a lid Il teems to us that ihu Sentinel is per forming a work of supererogation in at tempting nt this laic day to prnvo that Mr. Vnr Ness is earning home. The readers of tlut paper can certainly need no further evidence on lliis point, when they recollect how clearly il was established in 103-1; and wo certainly sec no more reason for doubt ing these and similar statements now, than oxislcd at that period. If ihe aiithorily of the Sentinel is good fur any thing in this matter, there can be no doubt as to the fact that Mr. Van Ness h'ft Spam more than two years ago, anil was nclually on the ground here on the first of December last, ready to have taken his sent in Congress had he been elected. Under these circum lances, il strikes u-, that a more reference to the files of the Smtnicl will furnish nil the information necessary on this subject. And, fur the double purpose, of doing neigh bor Stone a kindness, and at the same tunc absolving ourselves from the imputed "in gratitude" of "doubling" the fact that Mr. Van Ness is, actu.w.i.v, coming home, wc have quoted a few chapters nnd verses, which must put tho question :it rest forev er. Wc commence with the address of the convention which nominaied Mr. Van Ness in 103-1, as wc find it recorded in the Sentinel. "He is now on his return home fiom a foreign luission-nherc hchas concluded nn inipoilnnl lie.ily, ilul irflecis equal credil upon our Uotcriimciil ami us milliner." As this convention ivj composed almost entirely of ufiicc holders, this annunciation ought to have been treated as ofliciat, nnd considered satisfactory. Hut I hen, ns now, people would "surmi-o" and ask questions, nnd the Sentinel found it necessary to speak out : The return of Sin. Van Ness.

Ilul these misgivings were measurably removed by the following nil thenlic intelligence from Franklin county, A correspondent of llie Si-ntinol of Sopt. 19, nficr assigning various reasons why Mr. Van Ness was not elected, concludes thus : And il was also reported lb il it wai doubtful whcllirr .Mr. Van Ness would icturn from Spain lliis fill, Sic.

Again on tho "71 li of November, just be fore the second ballot, the Sentinel nssurcd us thai ho would "soon be here," and made llie following touching appeal in his behalf: lie seasonably nt Ilio polls lei not llir frowns of ll.u.k iiowcr delcr ou from an independent cx- cicitcofjour political ligbis.

Mr. Allen was elected, and many persons believed that Mr. Van Ness was even yet in Spain. We expressed on opinion like this ourselvcs--to which tho Sentinel re plied : I'raud urox the rsortn. Fret Vrtsi. It i cr.uelv asserted in the I'reo 1'iess. tint the putlinj; in nomination Mk. Van Ness for member of Longro's was an "pnlirc fiaud upon Ilio people."

Van Ness would be back seasonably lo enter upon ilio duties of I lie office should ho be rleclcil. Time w ill show we w tie not mistaken. Tho people will picscntly deride which of llie two presses his practised the fraud upon them. We hate no apprehensions for the lesull. "The ciilpiit is often the most clamorous In pur suit." Sentinel, of Dec. 12. 1834. As to the fraud involved in the nomina tion of Mr. Vnn Ness, the pooplo must bo Ihcir own judges ; but should they so es teem it, wo see naughl bul they mubt grin and bear it, ns tho Sentinel is of opinion that they have no rcaton to complain. Uut whatever difference of opinion there may be as lo the moral cha.raclcr of this trans action, there can be no moro doubt nboul Mr. Van Ness' relurn, than there is about the authority above quoted ! And it is but justice to tho Sentinel hero to admit that we have never seen a lio moro uniformly nnd perscveringly persisted in than this. Indeed, it has been so ofien reiterated, that wo have little doubl tho cdilor nclually bo licves it himself. If others still doubt, they must pray for more faith; for wo very much doubt whether there are any now facts calculated to remove their unbelief. B:rVc fear that tho faithful in this dis trict, will not have even tho poor satisfac tion of voting for Mr. Van Ness's baggage, ns that was left in JVcio I'orA-, where he will undoubtedly tnko up his residence in case bo should over come home! The ha"- gage with which the editor of the Sentinel is so much elalod, belongs to Mr. Kmcart ! " A horse ! my kingdom for a horse!" Wc regret lo learn that tho bearers of the late cxprcst to Cambridge came near get ling themselves into difiiculiy. It seems that in the hurry of the occasion, ihcy mis took a tin pedlar's horse for their own, and never discovered the mistake till it was too late to reclify it. lirolher Jonathan having Inst a whole day's dicker by ibis operation, was, of course, very indignant. An uQicc has been offered to heal the matter, bul his ambition being of another cast, it wan de clined. And thus the matter rests. Wo can conceive of circumstances under which a man might be justified in taking his neighbor's horse without leave; bul wo very much doubt whether tho occasion al luded to would come under this head. Our advice to brother Stone is, to settle with the pedlar, and let him go about his btwi ncss. Our information from variuus parts of this district , highly gratifying. It loaves us no room to doubt of Mr Allen's rc-clec-lion by a larger majority than has been giv en to any individual in ibis district for ma ny years. Hundreds of Mr Allen's politi cal opponent, who would have casl their vntei fur nlinout any uf tho American can didates lalked of, express their determina tion never again to bo hum. bugged by a gentleman in Spain.

Adjourned without day. JOEL ALLEN, President. F. Hazek, Secretary. Mn. Stacv I noticed in the Sentinel of week before last, nn nrlicle signed "Grand Isle County," casting reflections on tho Whig candidate for Senator in Grand Lie County, and tho manner in which tho nom ination was made. The writer of that ar ticle is known, and when his character rises above thai of the bruto creation, ho will be entitled to some notice. Bul perhaps the public may demand that some further notice should be taken of the article in question, and also the manner in which it appeared ; and the msnncr in which it has been received by the Van Burcn party nnd candidate for Senator in this county, de mand it. It was. fondly hoped (hut each parly would bo frco to select their own candidate without any interference of the other parly, and that the election would be conducted upon fair nnd honorable prin ciples ; but this hope has been blasted by the appearance of the article in the Vnn Burcn organ, and which is fondled and cherished by their candidate and party in thi.s county. Ten days have been suffered to pnss since tho appearance of tho slander, for tho purposo of giving Mr. Barnes and his supporters nn opportunity of condemn ing it, if they did not approve of it. But his hired man lias been seen peddling the papers that contnined it. There arc but two assertions in llie article in que.-tinn, that arc true, ono is, that Mr, Adams was nominated as a candidate for Senator by the Whig Convention in this county, and the other, I lint Isle Li Mott was not repro. scntcd in tho convention, (in consequence of the high winds rendering tho waters im passable on that day.) An incendiary is always the first one to cry "fire." Let us examine the nomination of Dr. Barnes, the Van Burcn candidate for Senator. No public notice was given that a convention was to be held for that purpose. Dr. Barnes repaired to North Hero on a military inns ter day, called a few of his patients into tho Court House, who forthwith appointed him chairman of the meeting. Dr. Barnes ap pointed his committee, and his committee in turn nominated him a candidate fur Sen ator, nnd therefore Dr. Barnes ordered his Secretary lo publish this fnrco in the Son tinel, as the spontaneous voice of the Van Huron parly; when it is well known, that, had tho whole county been fairly reprc scntcd, Judge John M. Sowlcs would have been selected as tho candidate. South He. ro was not represented at nil, nnd Alburgh wns roprcsonlcd only by two deputy Cus torn House officers under Col. Hyde, who is brother in-law to Dr. Barnes. Now under these circumstances, what chance was ihero fur tho nomination of any per son except I)r Barnes. In the Whig nomination, public notice wns given that n convention would bo held Tor Hint purpose; and four towns out of fivo in tho county were represented, and tho convention appointed n committee of two from each town to present a suitable person to he supported ns n candidate for Senator, which coinmilteo unanimously reported the name of Mr. Adnms which by the convention. It is true that fivo of iiiu cigiu eiwiiniuce were originally in fa vor ol another gentleman; bul upon con sultation, came lo Hie above conclusion.

North Hero, August, 103G. To my old friend Stacy, of the Burlington Free Press : What a liar "Grnnd Islo County" is, friend Slacy. I dont mean the county of Grand Islo, nor the people that livo in it, but tho man that calls himself "Grand Isle County," in the Sentinel of week beforo last. Now I know the man, nnd so far is ho from being the whole of Grand Islo County, hois but a mere drop in tho buck et, and it seems to bo a pity that ho was was ever dropped in the land of the living. His real name sounds more like a roaring beast, going up and down, seeking whom ho cant find nobody to cheat, than it docs liko "Grand Isle County." Now this man of the Sentinel is really nobody but n pet tifogging lawyer that came lo stay with us some two or three years ago, and is ns mad ns a henuvilh her head cut off because ho cant get any business. Our good pco pie made no business fur him, so ho resolved

to kick up a dust nnd mako business for himself. The first dust he kicked up, he kicked an old woman nnd was fined four dollars and the costs for it, which mndc business enough for him for about three months. Ho next whipped up a dust, by whipping a female child, two and a half years old, till the poor creature's body was as black as his character, nnd he is now bound over to our next County Court to answer for it, and the child has a judgment against him for 45, damages nnd cost. This will probably make business for him a year or two more, nnd will entitle him to the "Knight of the whipping post," instead of "Grand Isle County." Now friend Sin. cy, if this dont set well on "Grnnd Islo County's" stomach, I should recommend him to call on Dr.Slcarns and get two box- e's of Leo's pills, and a bottle of Anderson's Cough Drops, and go over and vote for the lories, and his cure will be radical. Maj. Jack Downing, jn. Alburg, Aug, fl, 1036 Louisiana. The recent election in this Slate has resulted in tho re-election of the present members of Congress two whigs, and one Von Burcn man. Tho Lecislnturo is claimed by both parties; but wc think there is little doubt of a whig majority. This fact is of some importance now as a U. S. Senator is to be elected at the next session. North Carolina. The election in this Stntc is now in progress and tho canvass for Governor seems to bo conducted with much spirit on both sides. Gen.

Tho returns thus far received are not sufficient to warrant an opinion ns to the result thouch tho whin- papers sneak with irreat condcncc. Tho Raleigh Register holda this languogc : - - - - " . ,y- , VSMIVUI W I'fJUli, U 1 J in may boast nnd talk large, and 'whistle lo keep their courage up ;' but all will not do, hr will nnrndlv bn nle-nlnrl litr n Inn.lanmn majority.

Eight years ago John Quincy Adams' ad ministration was flnnniinnml mi tint nmennl ruling party, for Ihe crime of extravagance, and this was one of the grounds upon which that administration was overturned. Yet the expenses of John Quincy Adams' ad ministration averaged about twelve millions of dollars per annum, about ono third oflhe proposed expenditures of 1030, under Ihe present economical ndminiMration. A committee of retrenchment was got up in Mr Adams' time of which C. C.
