HARRISON STATU CONVENTION. orriciAi.. rurfimiit lo tlii; coll from the Mate com mittee. Iho friends (if HARRISON nml GRANGER assembled nl iho court house in JlJmilpclicr, on tlic 20lh inst. at onu o' clock, P. M. The Convention was called to order by Hon. Hilton Brown, chairman of I lie stale committee, and organized by the appoint ment of the following officers', viz: Hon. Samuel G. Crafts. President. lion. Mark Richard?, y Pnd Hun. enry P. Janes, , Gen. Martin Flint, ) John W. Smith, I Secrclarics. Farrand P. Merrill, S On motion of Mr lironw, Hon. William Rladc, Hon. Hiland Hall, Solomon Foootc Esq,, Hon, Milton lirown, Gen. Martin Flint, Hun. Harvey Hell, and George 15. Chandler Esq., were appointed n commit tec. to draft resolutions and an address to the people. , The Court House being insufficient lo contain the members of the Convention on motion, the Convention adjourned to the Brick Meeting House, nt-t o'clock, I. M. 1 o'clock P. M. The Convention met pursuant to ad journment. . . Hon. Ililand Hall from the committee to draft resolution', summillcd the following, which were adopted, viz: Resolved, That the people ol Vermont, from the earliest dawn of their political ex. istenco to the present moment, have stead ily manifested their deep Hltnclimcot lu ru publican institutions', and their capacity to preserve and defend them, as well against the assaults of pretended friends, as I he open attacks of acknowledged enemies; and that now. in November IH3G, they will not for the first time depart from Iheir ancient principles, but will proclaim them from the ballot boxes in a voice that shall neither be mistaken, nor misunderstood. Resolved, That the people of Vermont vinvw wild nlnrm and abhoielice thn open, acknowledged and undisguised ifi'irls of Gen. Jackson, by means of the money of Ihe people, orihe patronage ofthe govern ment, and of his own personal electioneer ing exertions, to appoint, for the Country, a successor to the Presidency: efforts, which, if they remain unrebuknd by the people, will effectually convert Ihem into the serfs of a monarchal dynasty, leaving them but the forms of liberty without Mm substance. Raolvcd, That" the people of Vermont, opposed, as they have uniformly been to the illegal and daring assumptions nf power bv the present executive Chief Magistrate ofthe United Slates, and to most ofthe ntlwr nrnminenl acts ofhis administration, cannot without an entire abandonment of their former principles, give in their adhe sion lo Martin Van lluren, his nominee for the Presidency; when they know from in dubitable evidence, as well as from his own declaration, thai the gteat objects of his administration, if olcctctl, will be, to 'carry out the principles which Gen. Jackson has begun." Resolved, That in the maifestatiun of the sentiments of Martin Van Buren as dc clarcd by the acls of his political life, we discover nothing in common with those of the people ofthis stale, but on the enntrrry o tolal disregard for them; aad in ihe mean servility to the will of a master, which prompted him. without a blush, to proclaim to the world that "it was his sufficient glo ry to serve under such a chief," we find him to have imbibed notions truly conso. riant to the feelings of a slave, but utterly disi'iisllii" to an independent freeman. Resolved, Thai Martin Van Burcn, in his opposition to the distribution of llicsur. p'us revenue has betrayed an utter disrc gard lo the interests of the people, desiring rather to keep ihe public money under Ihu rnntrol of the executive, with which to In crease his army of mercenaries and reward his favorites, than to distribute it among the people to whom it rightfully belongs. Resolved. That Ihe present crisis in our national affairs calls loudly upon the friends of the constitution and our common coun. try, for their united and untiring exertions in elevating to the offices of President and Vice President ofthis republic, men whose aim shall be the common weal and the country's good, rather than self aggrand izement or the advancement of parly. Resolved. That the Patriotism. Talents. Political Honesty and Private Virtue, ol W.M. I1ENRRY HARRISON & FRAN C1S GRANGER, justly entitle them to the confidence and support ol tneir leliow citizens, and that wo hail I heir nomination as the harbinger of hotter days lo tin peo ple, and look forward to their election as Ihe termination of a dark day, and Ihe com menccmcnt ofa bright era in our political history. iiem Ames op -run hon. iikman ai.lt.n. Mr. A. remarked that ho was desirous lo say a word or two in relation to il, be fore the question was taken. He had wit nessed with plrnsure the growing interest that was manifested throughout Iho coun try in behalf of Gen. Harrison, as a candi date for I lie first office in the gift of the people, it iiml been a misfortune to Ins friend that he hart not been bronchi into ilii; field at an earlier day. In all the can tidncics for office by ihe suffrages of the nen nlc. it was their peculiar right lo inves lignle Ihe character and merits uf those who are presented to their notice, and in i '.in nlppiinn of so Inch an officer ns the riiief Magistrate of llie United Stales, it was not onlv their right bul il became '.heir imperative d'uiy. to canvass with the utmost ' .? ... .1.- ,?.l...to nil or. ril v mwl nfiitti scrutiny, ius"" 'i V 1 V, cal sentiments ofthe candidates who might be proposed. His desire was thai such might Uo tlic course in iou .i.-r. ,.v v. He wished that Iho history ol Gen. Harri son should be well underwood behiro a iud"cment should be pronuunccd upon him in "card to his character nnd capability to execute Iho duties oran office so elevated nnd of such vast importance. After an ex Bmination. w.ih the severest scrutiny. In; believed Gen Harrison would not be round wnntin", but would bo lound eminently qualified for the performance of all Us re nnirnmcnts. Gen. Harrison ha had much experience i,Mi, in military and civil life. J hiriy fiirht viarsof il had been devoted almost fxclusivclv to the service of his country, l,o Mi himself justified ill saying, to l,a ,rltrn enturnclton of all llio Chief Ma .utratpn'of tho United StalCF, as wcP as of the people, whose rights, interests, and lives it had been his official duly to protect and defend during all that long pe riod of time. His public services began as early as 1791, and at Ihe ago of Hi ycatB. lie was then appointed by Gen. Washing ton to Iho office of Ensicn in tho army of tho United States, raised for the purpose of defending our Western frontiers against the depredations of iho hostile savages then inarms. Ho immediately went into active service, and being promoted to the office of Lieutenant, served tinder wen. Wayne, as his aid to the final defeat of Iho Indians in '9-1. Amongst other proofs that ho acquit led himself to the entire satisfaction, nol onlv nf the cntntnandintr General, but nf tho Chief Magistrate, Mr A. referred to tlic fact that ho vias immediately thereaf ter promoted by Gen. Washington lo llio office of Captain, and had confided to him a separate command ofthe most important nost on our frontier. In this command ho was continued till '97, when, having prov ed himself ential In every place to which ho had been appointed, hts was taken from Iho army and placed by the same venerated Chief ..1agisirato in Ihe responsible siai inn nl Sccrelary nf iho North West Territory, who in the absence ofthe Governor would become the acting executive Chief Magis Irate of that Government. His capability and powers as a civil officer being thorough Iv known lo Iho people of that part of the Union, Mr Harrison as, by their suffrages, elected a9 their first delegate to tho Con gress of the United Slates. In this new situation at the ago of 20, his talents wore such in tho estimation of that body that lie was appointed chairman of a committee in relation to the public domain, and his able report on lhat subject, which was carried out by a general law, regulating our sys tem nf land sales, confirms to the fullest extent, the wisdom of that body in placing him at the head ol so important a commit tee. His next appointment lo office in the civil department, was lo that of Governor of the Indiana territory, made by the elder Adams in Ihe year inOO. This office was continued lo him by appninlments of the succeeding Presidents, Jefferson and Mad ison, and at the solicitations ofthe legisla live body over whom he had presided, un til 1013. His eminent success in the management of the affairs of that territory during the period of 13 years, his ability and fntnncssras well as justice and human ily lowatds the numerous tribes of Indians within that territory, attest his superior puwer for the execution of that trust. Re fore quilting thb office for another, for which the exigencies of Iho country do inanded his services, ho was compelled !o gird on the armor of war in defence ofthe inhabitants of that territory against the ravages and massacres ofa ruthless savage foe ; and his success in the memorable bat tle of 101 1. nt Prophctstown, and his strict command lo his troops to spare the lites nfl all who could ho brought to cease Irom re sistance, evinced not only ins powers, but his fixed principles of humanity to an enemy who disregarded all rules of civilized warfare. From the early part ofthe last war, to 1014, acling as Major General in the army of the United Stales, his progress is famil iar to all. His forcing- tlic enemy out of our territories after repeated engagements, and at lenclh in 1!!13, their signal defeat at Ihe battle ofthe Thames, and thus closing tho struggle in that section, arc acts which, if duly appreciated, cannot fail to establish his title lo ihe character of an efficient and nowerful commander. In 101-1, !.o resigned his commission and retired to private life. Hut not being per milted to remain in that situation, ho was in a short time thereafter elected by the people of Ohio to tho office of Represent ative in the Congress of the United Slates and subsequently by llio legislature of that State, a Senator in Congress. Sustaining himself in these offices with great rcputa. lation till 1020, he was then reqircd to fill the important station of Minister Plcnipo lentiary lo the republic of Columbia, one of ihe ino-t important missions from our government, requiring lalents of tho high est order and a mind of the richest cultiva tion. Mr Harrison repaired to the place of his destination, was received at that Court with maiks of enthusiastic respect, and entered upon tliodulic-) ofhis mis-ion ; bill in a short time thereafter, and before giv. iiH' him time to accomplish any of the ob jects of his mission, he ns recalled by the present duel magistrate to mane room lor avored parlizan. ainco mat perioo. Gen Harrison has been in comparative se clnsiun, a practical farmer, in lm favorite retreat at North Bend. I'lic various offices that have been con ferred upon him both military nnd civil, and Ihe manner he had sustained them. have been glanced at to show that he had enjoyed the continued confidence of the people, and of every adininistralinn, from Iho commencement ol Hie government i" ihe present lime, with tho exception of the last ; and no reasons were ever ex pressed, and nonu could bo implied, for i want ol thn support ol llio present duel ma"iiratc, cxciit that General Harri-nn could never suffer liimsell to be degraded to ihe level nt a partisan politician. No other conclusion could with candor be arrived at Ihau that bo was a man of most distinguished talents, and of sound uiuiui niiujjrny. Rut Mr. A. remarked, these qualifica lions were not sufficient lo command hi vole without a full kuov ledtro und convic lion ofthe soundness of llio sentiments and opinions ofthe candidate on the prominent interests ol ilia country at the present day He must be satisfied of the soundness of Ins principles in relation to l lie tariff, pro tecting thn industry of the North ; lo the propriety ol distributing tho surplus reve nue amongst the Slates ; nf dividing in thn samn way the proceeds of tho siles of pub he lauds;, or so much ol ilium as should not be needed for Ihu ordinary wants of the iii-croment : his sentiments in regard to an expenditure from the public treasury of money fur needful works of internal im nriii-pineiit nl sir CUV a national uiiuiulil-i whether he would restrict to proper limits In, vein nnwer: what his opinions were in relation to the right of expunging from the records ofeithcr llnuso nf Congress I heir recorded proceedings ; and what Ins sentiments were in relation to o party tfst n, n mmlifiri.tinn frit- mil iiir.nl preferment. , Ho regretted exceedingly that ho had not time to enter into a scparatocxamina lien ofthe expressed opinions ofGon. liar risen on each of these topics. He must be satisfied in saying that we have his opin ions and tentlmcnnla clearly expressed on these and variousothcr subjects ; they lino been readily given could bear but one construction and wore sufficent to satisfy him of tho soundness of his political opin ions on all these questions ; and, as ho firmly believed, Gen. Harrison would carry out these sediments, and in his adminis tration, would keep within thn bounds of the constitution, and support those great interests which would result in the best good ofthe whole Union. He most heart Tly concurred in tho resolution just read, nnd hoped it would be unanimously adopt cd. Resolved, That wo congratulate our fellow citizens throughout the country upon the ntispicious result of our recent stnto elections affording as they do the most decisive and cheering evidence that Vnrmnni will pnniinuo to adhere lo and siis lain the stand she has taken not only in her principles of national policy, but also In re lation to secret societies and uny nnd every opposition to the supremacy ofthe coaslitu lion nnd laws. I Rcsilvcd, That secret societies, tie in compatible with the genius and spml frcejgovornment, and that any nttci ot a pt to tl instate or revive them among us, v. II bo met on our part with the most unconprotn ising opposition. Hon.

The "Queen of the West" Comes out in great splendor. Harrison will walk over the ground in November, and Lwing will be returned to the U. S. Senate. The Columbus Journal gives the votes of 57 counties, in which the Whig gain since 1033, is 10,779, on 7,509 over and above the cntiro majority then obtained by Gov. Lucus. Eleven of the nineteen members of Congress arc Whigs. P. S. Letters from Cleveland stato that "all the bounties but three have been heard "from, and the Whigs have elected them "Governor, a largo portion of Congressmen and a Whin Lcsislalure. Gov. Vance's majority is over 0000. The following explains some of tho diffi cullies which the Whigs had to contend against in the Election to the Legislature. Ohio. Returns from 57 out 74 counties of this State place tho Whig candidate for Governor nine thousand voles ahead ol llio Van Buren candidate; and yet, from the very uniust apportion of representatives amongst tho several counties, made by Ihe Jackson parly at the last session, it is doubtful whether there will be a majority ol Whi"s returned to the Slate Legislature I'he Constitution of Ohio limits tho nnm her ofmembers in her Legislature to I OH I hat is, 30 in Iho upper, and 72 in the luw. cr House to bo appointed every four years amongst the different counties ol'lhe Slate, according to the number nf while male population. 1 his periodical apportionment Involved nn the last General Assembly, in which there happened to bo a largo Jack son majority. I ins majority, "iii " maintaining the ascendency ol the party, at all hazards, so nrrar.gcd the represen tation amongst the counties, as, by a spe cics of gerry mandering, and in violation of duty and good lailli, lo give l no prepon derance to Jackson counties, at the expense in man casscs, of Whig counties having a much larger population. Such, however, has been the reaction against tho Spoils party, that the Whigs will, it is expected, equal the number of their adversaries in tllC l,e"ISiailHO, liuiwiiiiiuimin; inu nil nuilnus apportionment; and Ihi. consider. in" the disadvantage, will be doing nobly. In tho next Congress tlic Whigs w,n nave i.loven rerlnin. possibly twelve, out of the nineteen members which the Slate scuds to Congress. Aalwnal intelligencer. Pennsylvania. The Van Burcn m jority fur members of Congress in Penn sylvania is only obout eight uiousanc, olmivinrr a Whig gain of four thousand since last year. The editors of tho Phila delphia Whig papers appear not lo despair ofcarryin" ihe stale in November for liar rison. The Pennsylvania Inquirer remarks: All our letters reiterate the opinion that tho Harrison Electoral ticket will prevail lhat thousands will support Old Tippe. canoe, who would not go for our candidates for the Legislature. In the course ofa day or two, wo must commence 'tho rally' for November. The Commercial Herald and U. States Gazette speak in similar language to the above in consequent of recent advices from the interior of tho state, by private letters. Tho Congressional election in Georgia has been a close one, and it is as yet un certain which ticket is elected. Probably a part of each- It is however no longer doubtful as to her Electoral vole.

Tho singlo extract which wo annex from tho Princeton Whig, will ex hibit Iho just view taken of tho past, and the right spirit in regard to tho future, which is inculcated by tho Whigs of Jersey. How sta.nos Tlic case now? The parlies in New Jersey arc now just near enough bal anced lo hold out strong 'incentives to a uni. led and vigorous exertion at the approaching election for clcclols of President and Vice President. Now Is the limo for activo exer tion now, the lime lo insure success to Ihe good cause. Let all bo on tho alert. Let no ono slumber at 'his post, but rouse up lo prompt and efficient-action, and a glorious victory aaits us.

The 0th Nov. next the Freemen uf Ver mont will again bo called upon to exercise their right of suffrage and to choose seven electors of Presidcnl and Vice President of the U. Stales. In doing Ihis t hey ex press Iheir opinion whether they will have Martin Van TSurcn and Richard M. John son fur President and Vice President, or William II. Harrison and Francis Granger. In voting for the former ticket il will b'j understood lhat the present Ad. ministration i sustained and approved of, nnu in voting lor i tie Harrison licKcl a change of iho Administration is expected. If there were no serious complaints against Ihe present administration, wc thiol; sound policy would dictate a change. Eight years is long enough for one admin. ist ration to be in power. There may bo many acls of gross inal administration which aro undiscovcrablc until a chau docs lane place and investigation is gone into, particularly in relation to the cxpendi lines in the different departments of the Government. But enough urinis-managc menl and profligacy, in our opinion, lias been developed to Iho understanding of every honest and intelligent freemen to leave no doubt on Iho mind that a change is absolutely necessary to tho welfare and peace of the country. And il is most se riously believed by some of ihe best nnd wisest Statesman our country affords, thai the existence of our Republic depends on a change. Under these circumstances, how can the freemen neglect Ihe polls? Wo warn ihem ofthe danger. Should Martin Van Buren bo elected President, we shall have to sub. mil to another eight veers rcicn of terror. probably and this may not bo the worst of We have no lears as lo tho result in thU Slate, if ihe Freemen nttend the nulls, nnd the result of the coldest throinthout the United Slates may depend on the seven votes which aro In be cal in this Sinle. The result ofthe elections in the Slates must now disipate the idea that ihe favnnin (prodigal) son of New York cannot but be elected ricsidcnt, notwithstanding ho may have the vote of Pennsylvania. He has probably lost Georgia, and Ohio has gone beyond his reach by thousands and it is now pretty well settled lhat eery southern Slate will go ngaintt him together with several of the western. In fact, l here i-i-carccly a possibility thai there can be any election by t lie Electors, and Harrison is as hkely lo have n plurality ol the voles as Von Burcn. Should Pennsylvania go fur Harrison, he may be elected by the Elect ore; Van Buren cannot unless wo are greatly deceived. Rutland Herald. PRENTICE'S LAST. Melancholy Effects of Reauly.
