FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 14. A Mi HAIL VUKMONT! "Gito mo iIik cons, Ami let (lie kutilc lu i he tnnnpui speak, 'I'lio trumpet lu iheciiniionier williotii, '1'lic cunotu lu i lie hcutctis. the licavciii lo earth." The rccunl election in Ihissiatctakcn as n whole, is indeed n cheering indication of the Btcndy onward march of these princi ples and measures which arc eventually to redeem the nation from misrule and oppres eion. The little show of strength which the Van Burcn parly made in the legisla ture last year is utterly annihilated, and that too under nidi circumstances as to leave them no hope of ever retrieving it. Notwithstanding Gov. Jenison had ren dered himself very obnoxius in some 6ec lions, hy his course on the Canada question last winter, still ho is re elected hy a trium pliant majority, of not. le-s than s'.x thous and a gain 1500 cn Inst years vole. In eomo of the largest counties in the Slate a single Loco Foeo representative indicates the existence of the party, while in four counties only, out of the fourleen, have they carried majorities. Our opponents j had hoped that by mustering their entire strength in some- towns whero the whigs, relying upon their known majority, would be indifferent and careless, they might suc ceed in slipping in their candidates. In other places they have brought up ques tions not in tho remotest degree connected witli the political topics of the day, and cn deavored to divide the whigs upon them, with tho vain hope of cutting us up in de tail. But in this they have failed. The whigs of the r-tatc hayc remained united, and dismissing all questions but the true one in controversy, have been, as they always will be under similar circumstances, VICTORIOUS. The House, last yrar consisted of 210 members, of whom 125 were Whigs and 33 Loco Focos. This year, the Loco Focos may possibly number 05, all told. Our Senate, it will be recollected, con sists of thirty members. Of these tho Whigs have otcctcd twenty, and the Loco Focos ten. We have lost one in Franklin, one in Chittenden, and one in Bennington, (by means of split tickets,) and have gained three in Orange. Two to one is as strong ns any party ought to be, for convenience eakc, in either branch. (From the Bennington County Whig.

It is now rendered very certain that there is no choice for member of Congress in this district. Of tho votes returned, wo understand Mr. Smith has a majority 0! three or four, but the official canvass will show from one lo two hundred scattering votes, of vhich wo have no account at pros- s:nt. The official canvass takes place the second week in October, at Montpolicr, and the new election will como on about ihn middlr. nf November. Let tho Whigs of the district be prepared for the occasion Wo havo strength sufficient, and to spare and if wo vill but bring it out, the result cannot be doubtful. So far as we can learn from various parts of the district, the best pirit prevails among our whig friends, and all are ready for the conflict. 1'.

"The two Great Stato Conventions, for nominating tho candidates to be presented to the people, for the offices of Governor and Lieutchant Governor, assembled on the 12th. The Whigs met at Utica, their pponents at Herkimer. The latter body will again off.-r tho name of William L, Marcy as Governor, anil it is surmised the name of Addison Gardiner ns Liiitenant Governor. Who will be nominated by the Whigs is a matter of entire uncertainty They have good names to select from, and it is to be presumed, that their choice w tin inndn with enro and discretion. That it will be heartily acquiesced in and sup ported, there can be no doubt. Expense ok tub Government. The expenditures ol tho government Irom the commencement of Geo.

Tho Sentinel of the 0th inst. contains n personal attack of moro than usual gross, ticss upon a certain cIbbs of the voters nl tho lato election In this place. Since that publication thoy havo heard the liopo fre quently expressed that it would not bo 6uffured to obtain any reply from them. This hope Ihoy havo no intention of disnp. pointing. They havo neither tosto nor leisuro for bandying words with a person who does it by profession. And further more their residence in this community has long einco taught them that the character of that press will fortunately render any other reply than silence quite unnecessary It has been thought proper to say thus much, lest tho present conductor of that press, having but recently arrived among us from foreign parts, should fall ir.to the awkward mistake of putting n moru flat tcring construction upon the effect of his pulilico-literary labors. Wo shall havo no further concern with the article or the author of it. It may be matter of just regret to any individual, when the decision of a regular tribunal upon somo of his rights proves un satisfactory to 6ome oilier person but this is not n very uncommon event. The free men connected with the University arc per feclly aware that the late decision of the board of authority is grounded upon one simple principle of law. That that decision is liable to two opinions is quite possible, and whenever any gentleman shall como for ward to take exception to it one that haB some controul over his temper, somo refer ence to fact in his statements, and a com mand of tolerably decent language they are quite ready to trust the vindication of that decision lo the older and wiser heads who made it. Under existing circum stances, they will undoubtedly pursue the only course that becomes freemen con tinue lo exercise, according to their own best judgment, whatever rights the proper authorities shall declare them entitled to. If any hopes, as it would seem, havo been entertained in any quarter, that the slight est wavering could be effected by hewspa- perbravadoand threats of personal violence, such persons cannot bo loo soon informed (hat they havo to do with a class of Amer ican freemen of whose temper and cliarae ter they have yet much to learn. drivon on tho Circassian coast, where the I natives plundered and burned all they could gel ol.

And this was tho frugal, economical, reforming, democratic administration of Gen. Jackson. Rut Mr. Van IJureii has improved on the example of his illustrious predecessor. Tho first year of his administration costs 33,554, 341 being nearly as much as tho total expenditures of tho twelve years of Wash uiL'ton and tho elder Adam. Rut while thuniinual expenditure is thus multiplied by twelve, tho population has only been multiplied by three. The incrcaso of pop illation, therefore, by no means justifies Iho incrcaso of expenditure.

The following passage, says tho Phila delphia Inquirer, from the Now York cor respondence of tho Montreal Courier, is not without interest, especially in connex ion with tho recent intelligence from Gen. Gaines. The project alluded lo, appears rather Quixotic, and yet nearly all impor tant projects seem so at first, except to the few enthusiasts with whom they originate Tho Indians havo bpen sadly wronged, ruthlessly robbed : and yet, tho future is pregnant with many similar scenes of out rago nnd oppression. Tho march of civili zalion is onward and so is tho progress of plunder ! My present object is to speak of John Ross, tho chief of tho Cherokecs. It is his object, and he makes no secret of it, lo those with whom he is on a familiar fool ing, to go among nil Ihe tribes of Indians and havo a ' talk," lo tell lliem that they have warred with each other long enough that thev must now unite it is the will of the Great Spirit or thoy will bo swept away. The white men are advancing, and though thoy now say they will not encroach upon the lands marked out for tho red men in a few years they will want lo remove lliem again. When Iloss has gained hi object of uniting the various tribes of his brethren in one common interest, he then proposes that they should all abandon the lands now theirs, ns far us the Rocky Mountains 111 winch there arc niimernu fiats, and delightful pasturage, buffalo, &c and let the white men lake possession ol all the low county to the Rocky Mountains hut permit them lo encroach no farther but, with the immense forces ihoy will pos scss, in lliu fastnesics 111 the mountain fight for the last relic of their own, their native land, if it be necessary, to the death J here M pomcthing vcrv noblo ill tin Indian's resolve. 15 11 1 Ross is no ordinary man. lie is one ol those apparently mark ed out by nature for great and lofty enter

prise. Should he enrrv out tits designs and should further wrong be attempted 011 the hunted lords of the soil their stand at bay will be terrible. Our government has taken the scattered tribes of Indians, with that singular infatuatedjpolicy which char actcrises all its doings, and placed them all together. Thoy are now, likewise, as they they have been before, alive to their inter osts, versed in Iho tactics of our warfare and enabled to compete with us in iustan ces successfully. Ross has another idea winch shows how deeply calculating he in regard to his people and brethren. He proposes to purchase of Mr. Caihn his In titan gallery, and to take il with him to the Kockv Mountains, there to build a tempi for its reception, and invite the warriors of tho tribes to visit it. There they will see, many ot them, titeir own portraits op on the same wall, lie will tell them Hi tho Great Spirit created the great modi cine man, (Callio) to bring together, as they see themselves on tho wall, in order that they shall light each other no more but be united. Ho will make it a gre temple, and none but those who have di tinguished themselves will be allowed enter it, and that only in tho performance of religious rites and ceremonies, l hi would unite the Indian heart and soul Mvstury is the key stone to nil their lions Such n inyetery would make thn who had raged with tho enmitv of tigers poacenblo as lambs.

Tho Buliimoro American remarks upon this: "Tho official statements of exports of Silk goods from this country during ihe same series of years show that ihe annual nvcrago shipped in other countries is only about 1,000,000 in value, and consequent ly that very nearly the wholo amount 1111. ported i consumed by the people of 1 tic United States. It is u singular spectacle lo behold a country which is so admirably ndaptcd in nil respects to the culture o'f Silk as is our own, tributary, lo tho amount of so many millions annually, 10 tho industry of France. But wo aro induced lo think that tho imports of Silk from abroad have teon their maximum, or at all events, that should they go higher, Ihoy will soon be gin to bo paid for, to no inconsidcrablo ex tent, by tho raw material exported from tho United States. The experience of the last year or two has proved 1 hat the mul berry tree can bo reared and multiplied with perfect success nnd but litllo troubln or expenso, and rapidly increased as tho supply of trees Iiob been, it has yet fallen far 6hort of tho demand for them. The lapse of a fow years is alone required to mako tho Uniled Slates n large producer of raw silk, ond a lew moro superadded will enable tho gcniti9 and enterprise of our pcoplo to compete with tho silk manufac. lurers of Franco as successfully as they now do with tho cotton factories of Great Britain. RlSE OK THE r.AKES. A rrnnttpman who has just returned from iho west, states that wrests ot ooks navo been killed by tho rise of waters in the lakes, and that somo of the trees on being cut down, nro found to bo marked with tho growth of a hundred and ony years ; thus proving, that during that long period the waters had not before been on high as at present. The cataract of tNiogarn has gained in grandeur, whilo many cultivated farms are now only to be found under water, and city lots which had been sold for thousands of dollars, are in the 6atno submerged condition. Dwelling houses, barns, &;c. stand "in tho water and out of the water," and tho fences which once divided estates, now divide " watery wastes."
