Resolved. That whilo ovory individual, whether a citizen of tho United Slates, or of Her Brltanic Majesty, possesses tho right of living under the Government of hia own choice, ills tho first duty which ho owes to his rcspcctlvo country, to oboy, and cordially lo support tho laws and institutions of his government, and, by ovory legal moans with' in his power, to enfoico thoso laws against nvcry one, who shall endanger Iho peaco of tho country by their violation. Resolved. That relations of peaco and amity at piescnt exist between tho govern ments of Great Britan and tho United States; that it is for tho interests of both nations that Iheso relations should continuo undisturbed, and that it is tho duty of ovory good subject and citizsn to strengthen Iheso bands of peaco 'by reciprocal acts of friendship and kindness 'towards his neighbors across Iho border. Resolved-, That thoro exists on tho frontier of Vormont a band of desporato refugees and 'others, who, by recent outrages committed on pcaccablo inhabitants on both sides of tho line, which in some instances havo been tiaced to them, havo forfeited all claim lo sympathy or protection s and it becomes tho duty of . .! !.! I ..U!I I mco tlinir nlmx.l oom cuizciiH nnu uujv;i.i! ....... u....u. influence to havo them dealt with according to tho severity oftho laws of their respective -countries. Resolved.

Resolved, That tho foregoing resolutions "bo signed by the Chairman and Secretary in behalf of tho meeting, and bo published in tho Montreal Ihrald and the Burlington Free JPress, Resolved, --That tho thanks of this meeting bo given lo the Chairman and Secretary for their able and efficient services. In behalf of said Meeting HENRY H. REYNOLDS, Chavman. M. Townsend, Secretary. Mr. Stacy, I am requested to 6oy in behalf of those who attended this meeting from Alburgh, that the 3d Resolution was not passed by the vote of any man living aouth of the Vormont line. A motion was mado by a gentleman from Alburgh to amend that Resolution, by striking out the word Vermont, (or which amendment, every man from tho Vermont eido of ihe line voted. The amendment was not adopted. The meeting was n full one, but unfortunately very few attended from this fide of the line, consequently the charge or attempted admission which that resolu tion Beema to carry, that all tho outrages .committed on this frontier have been the work of the "refugees and others," exclu sively of Vermont, must bo taken as the sentiment of our neighbors of the north -alone. We admit, and deplore the exist once of "a band of desperate men," made 'desperate by causes over which we have had no control. Cut wc deny that the Vermont side of the line is alone the present home of thosemidnight incendiaries, cold blooded assassins, and cowardly knaves who have kept this frontier in a constant tate of alarm for tho laat winter. Unfor tunately there are just now on this sido of latitute 45, but too many dark spots, where once stood buildings, and but too much reason to believe that why they do not .stand there now, is tho homo and coun tenanceormcry given to the abovo de scribed beings north of latitudo 45. Wc are happy to add, that at present we have at least hopes that a bolter 6tato of things will follow. And that it may, no good man will fail to ueo every exertion having a (tendency to effect it. HENRY II. REYNOLDS. .Alburgh, April 17, 1839. Horrid and melancholy death ! Our whole city was thrown into consternation and dismay yesterday (Wednesday) at the announcement of a distressing accident, which in a few moments resulted in the death of tho Hon. Luther Lawjience, Mayor of this city. In company with a friend he went into the building recently occupied as Ihe Planeing Mill. Tho wheel pit, to called, was open, and in explaining lo his friend how tho machinery was lo operate, he caught his foot in a rope, which was extended across tho edgo of the open, ing, and was precipitated, head foremost, a distance of sixteen fect, in a perpendicular descent his head coming in contact with Ihe iron curvo of the wheel at tho bottom ofthe pit. Ho was immediately taken out, fhockingly mangled and perfectly senseless. The ben medical aid was procured, but tho falal blow had been given, and ho Jived only about half on hour. We need not say that in thismclancholly disaster and death, iho city has sustained an immense and irreparable lots, Lowell Patriot, V K I D A Y MORNING, APRIL 26. We invito the reader's particular atten tion to an article in anothor column, on tho subject of Executive patronage; and when he has carefully gone through with it, then let him answer the question to his own conscience, whether tho state of things thero described by Mr. Van Burcn, ns bcarly possible, docs not in truth exist at the present moment, under his own admin istration. Tho President's bare nomina tion docs "carry any man through tho Senate," and the principlo is openly avowed and acted upnn "the President wants mv "vole, and 1 want his patronage 1 will " votk of he wishes, and he will give vie the office I wish for." The proceedings of a meeting at Cald well's Manor, will be found in another column. Tho trick oftho Tories is in pur. fect character, and furnishes a goad speci men of their ingeniousness. Dr. IIor.MEs. Wo were right in regard to the Governor's decision. On Friday sher iff Allen received an order from His Ex cellency, directing the surrender of Holmes to the authorities of Canada. A writ of habeas corpus, however, was immediately prayed out, citing the Sheriff lo appear before Judge Bennett, at this place, to-day (Thursday, and answer by what authority George Holmes is held in custody. We hopeto give thoresult before going to press. P. S. Tho decision of this question is put by, till the next meeting of tlis full bench, which will be in July : nnd in the meantime Holmes is lo bo transferred to some other jail for sofa-keeping. Wo arc under the necessity of again reminding the County of Chittenden that their jail is rather leaky. Holmes came very near escaping on Tuesday night. lie had made a clever hole through one wall of the dungeon, and, but for the watch, would shortly have accomplished his object. A little more putty ! The conusel for Dr. Holmes chnnscs to delpr the publication of tho argument against the surrender, until the question is finally settled by tho ultimate tribunal And perhaps there is propriety in this. Fire. We learn (lint ihe Saw-mill nnd Bap list mceiing-houso at l lie middle ol (lie town in Eptex, were burned down on Wednesday last. The tire look in the mill, and was driven by ilie wind upon die meeting-house. Willi ihe aid of a l.idder we are told the house might have been saved with all eusc. In another column ilie reader will find an account of a very destructive conflagration nt Albany, and also another at Ogdensburg. A rumor has been rife for some days that the latter was ihe work of incendiaries from acrois the line, but this we be lievo to be incorrect. It was doubtless accidental. Caution. Drunken loafers should bo cautious whore they moke the nests. The remains of ono of these unfortunates were found among the ruins ofabarnat Og densburgb, tho day after tho late fire. As this building was among the last con sumed, the presumption is that the humble tenant of iho hay mow was quite toooblivi ous to bo disturbed by even such a foretaste of the future-unless like King John he might exclaim, "Now 'pon my soul, lliis day grows wondrous hot." Dethoit The charter election for Do troil took placo on tho 15th inst. and re suited in tho election of Gen. De Gaiimo Jones, Whig, for Mayor, by the unprece dented rnojnrity of 514.

The Advertiser designates the Al dermen elect as follows : Whigs 7; Patri ots 2; Conservatives 1; Loco Pocos 2. Shade Tubes.

Beef. Conner has got some of the finest beef ever slaughtered in this market, or any other. Wo have just dined upon a sirloin, and really, wo know not when wo have felt so much like a christian. Never, never, havo wo seen a finer blending of "laianu icon" tho former as yellow and as fiogrant as May butter! tho latter lender as chicken, and ruddy as the cheek of a mountain nymph. Wo know of hut ono drawback upon euch beef, and that is the price. Mr. Conner informs us llmt ho paid for tho four bullocks alluded lo, the round sum of four hundred dollars I Tlie were fatted by Smith F. Pierson, of Shcl burn, who is entitled to the palm, for the best beef ever produced in Chittenden County. Albany April 20. The Day dawns!
