Who thai looks with the eye of true political philosophy ut (Ins subject, dues not eon in me power which in ciipiible ot thus lending the people to uc(iiicsco in n practical perversion ol their constitution, ground for Ihu most serious nlnrm. 'I'hu people rose in their might forly ycors ogo, ii nd ptii down nn niloiitnut rni utti thot I mil only microdot) Iho threshold of the present abuses of power. The lirst manifestation of lliein wns the ficr tm I for nn onset which resulted in n Iniimph ; nnil ct t hey hnvu now been fastened on the country fur ten ycori ! Do yon osk us, fellow cuizcim, for a so lution of the mysloty ol thii- change? It is nl IirihI. In the first place, I lie nclive Republicans of '91! are gathered lo their (til hern. Thuy curried mitt ihu contest of ilml period iho stern virtue of the curlier rind belter days of ihe Itepuhlic. The inrn who framed l lit; ' nisi 1 1 u I ion then lived, mid lived to some puipnsc. They snw, at n glance, lite li'iidency of the nil. vinicing power of Hid Kxeculive to n sub version of tho Constitution they hud aided to establish; nnd 1 1 m v rallied to the rescue. The conflict was short, nnd ihe triumph complete. We need not my, fellow citi zen, whnt would tin v; been I ho fnienf ihe present Dynnsly, il it hnd opened its enreer of usurpation ami cm ruptiuu in face of the whole body of Ihe patriots of '7(5, nnd the Constitutional fniltcrH of '(17. It would have been prostrated uud swept away by on overwhelming tide of populnr tndigna". lion. We cannot hero forbear referring to n single example of ihe spirit of ihu Fathers touching the subject ol nn abuse of Hxccu. tive patronnge. Mr. Madison has been justly denomina ted the fni her of Ihe Constitution. In u debate in the first Congress, on tho subject of the President's power of removal Irom office, in reply lo arguments againd Ihe existence of I lie power, drawn Irom its groot liability lo uIiii-m;, he sunt "The danger, ih.'n, consists merely in this: Ihe President can displace Irom office, it man whose mollis requite that he should bo continued in il. What will bo the motives which the President can feel for such an abuse of his power, anil the restraint that operate lo prevent it ? lo! Ihe first plncc, he will be impeachable by mis uouso beloro the .Senate for such an net of maladministration; for I contend ' tint the wanton removal ol rnei ilnrtous officers would subject him to impeachment nnd removal from his own high trust. Hut what can be his motive fur displacing a worthy man .'" Alluding afterwards lo the President's dependence upon the "popular voice," his liability to iinpencliineiil, and other re hlroinls connected with his siatton, Mr. Madison said "Will ht. hid defiance to all these considerations-, n ml wantonly dismiss n meritorious ami virtuous officer ? Such nn obuse of power exceeds my comprehen sion." Hero is n soniple of the spirit which pervaded Ihe country in 11)00, and gave to the Republicans- of flint dnv so triumphant n victory. Could James Madi-ou now rise from his tomb nnd walk into die Presideu lial Mansion, how instinctively would Us tenant fly from die presence of the mnn who, in the simplicily of revolutionary pa triotism and purily, could ask "Whai can be his motive for displacing a worthy man?" and could add "Such an abuse ol power exceeds my conception." In further reply lo the enquiry whence he difficulty of re enacting n,e triumph of 1800, over similar abuses of power, wo re. mark, that new and extraordinary means means unknown to the administration of the former period, huve been, and ore still resorted to, to sustain Kxecutive usurps, lions. The union of the Fox and die Lion is a rare combination. While one has cun ningly ond cautiously pulled the wires, and moved the machinery, the oilier has stood forth with reckless daring and "token the responsibility." While one tins operated with cautious mystery, the oilier has as tonished by the suddenness and boldness of his movements. By nn udroit and skilful movement, Gen eral Jackson, ni tho opening of his admin istration, was placed in the ntiitude of a professed reformer. Tho nhiucs of the administration of the Kldcr Adams were, without a shadow of truth, imputed to dial of his son; ami tho Republicans: of '91! wero invoked lo sustain (Jon. Jackson, as they hnd sustained Mr. Jefferson, to pin them down. Never were high nod hollow professions more thoroughly tested, or moro successful, than they have been during die losi ten yonrs. Hvery movement locxtond Lveculive influence nnd enlarge Kxecutive pywor. has unilormly been preceded by fouio cxtrnordinury pretension of regard tor popular rights. Tho Prosident has been lauded ns ihu patron smut ol Democ racy, even nt the moment of assuming powers which set lows, constitutions, logts lalures and conns of justice at defiance, nnd shook tho very frame work of tho gov. eminent to its louiidatinu, To blind the people to dm flagrant as niiinpiions of Executive power, care bus been taken m exercise it upon objects of popular jealousy. In true character, and tendency have, to thousands, been effectu ally concealed by die flourish and pnrado of using it to gratify nn artfully excited preju dice against the objcclH of its oiinck. Thus Ccn. Jackson availed himself of Ihe natu ral jealousy o the people against llnnkn, .nnd especially against Mammoth Hanks, lo cover tho enormity of die assumption of power in laking millions fioin die custody in which the law had plnccd it, and putting U where it could be mudo to subserve die purpose of augmenting his power, livery enlargement ol Lxecutivo power has been accompanied by die pretension dint H was iincossary to maintain Ihe people's riuhts. 'I'll- Prnairlnnl !... r. 1 I ,hn . . m .wwo.vMb nun iiiuii mi i'nciiiL-ii nemr them as, pre-eniiuenlly, their fneinl and guardian as wielding his great power to put down aristocracy, monopoly, n monster bank, nnd ovety thing opposed lit equal rights!

Never, wu venture lo say, has a higher stamp of po litical deception hecti played oil' on nny people. In Ihe genuine spirit of juggling, executive encroachment has assumed names precisely oppnsitu to its nolurc. Thus, wlnlu carrying out, with o high hand, the very principles which rendered the ndiiiin 1'tratmii of the I'ildcr Adams odious to the Republicans of i hut day, it coolly lakes its seat on the "Democratic platform," pro fesses to be the true expounder of Demur, racy, and, in tlio name of dm people, hurls anathenins nt the Whiguaa fedciulists of the school of '91! We have, fellow citizens, dwelt mainly nn th; subject of Incentive power, because the abiiso of that power lies ol the foiinda. Hon of nil Ihu evils which have ulllicted the country, in the experiments of the hut leu years. If tho President had kepi wilhin His Constitutional spheru, wo should have hnd no ruinous experiments on I ho currency no specie circulars no bank suspensions no derangement of I lie exchanges no defnlcntions of public officers no wnstini' of tho public monev on Lxcculivo favorites Tho grand fuiulnini'iital mischief has been, dial Ihe President has undertaken to govern (lie cvunlry ; and lias perverted thu whole pnlronngoof his office lo Ihe purpose of influencing Ihe people lo submit to his government as Ihu Constitutional govern ment, and to rely upon him ns dm great Conservator of popular rigliis. From such nn assumption of power, and such a per vorsion of Presidential influence, nothing but mischief could result, or can ever re. suit Wo regard it as the highest of our polit ical duties to stand by tho Constitution, and. lo die extent ofonr power, lo guurd it against every violation, especially to guard it at its weokct.1 puiut--tho point where it will forever he pressed and enilnn gored by the nnibilinn, from which nothing but die purest and most cxnltcd virtue can exempt its Kxecniive Chief. As wings, wu om n return to Ihe gnv- crnineut ofthc constitution n government of the people, acting through their con stitutional organs, uninfluenced by patron age nun unawuil by power. We are wil ling to trust tho people, without the aid of executive influence or dictation. We do not. believe that I ho constitution created the presidential office that its incumbents might operate through il on the iionular opinion, uirecl the popular will, ami con trol the destinies of the country. We be lievclhat it is the appropriate business of tho President lo execute the lows made by Ibo people through their representatives. Wo want to keep linn in his place We j want the pcuple should be left free to act without Ins influence. This, fellow cili zone, wc believe is gennino democracy. It wns emphatically ihu democracy of '9!!. It. is true democracy in 11)39. We intend! to to a ml a m it against dm democracy of popular Riibm'usioii lo executive usurpation, ond popular acquiescence in a government of executive influence. Wo desire, too, a Congress free from i ha I influence a Con gress which shall ho n fair expression of i He populnr will o congress whoso mem hers should think more ot Ihu people who cousiuiiieii t hern, and less ol thu President who did not constitulo them. Wc believo il will ho in vain lo struggle for pophlar rights il the country is to bo perpetually pressed down by the incubus of ex culive power, and vain to keep the fountain of popular action pure, if there is to he per petually poured into it the polluting stream of executive influence. From dint influence, too, do wc desire especially to hove the stale governments exempted. If there is nny such thing ns federalism, in a truly odious sense, it isho influence of ihu federal executive on the action of the Stntes. If any thing can ever prostrate i-tote rights, ond annihilate state independence, it will bo that influence. The federal executive possesses a power which he can bring to bear on almost every thing. His ogeiits nre every where. Through their instrumcntoliiy, he can reach every ballot box, and act on cverv slate government in the Union, lias con gress any such power as this ? Has the judiciary any such power? Can all the other branches of the government combin ed, exert a thousandth part ol the influcnco over elections, etuto and national, which die President may exert, and which has been exerted by General JucksDn and his successor ? Will ynu censure us, fellow citizens, for being jealous of such a power as ibis ? Shall wc be called federalists, and aristo crats, and monopolists, nnd loidlings, be cause we raise our voices against it? Shall wu he denounced as the enemies of popular rights, because wc endeavor to uiaintoin dm true democratic republicanism of '9!l, find nre struggling in the cause in which Mndison and Jefferson triumphed Will not Vermont ho tho last Mate to yield in dup contest with power ? Where is thern a slHtc in tho onnfeilorncr. whoso freemen can draw from the examples of iiio miimiers ot its independence, a deeper inspiration for such a content, than the freemen of the (Ireeii Mountain state? Where is (hero a state whoso chief magis trnle is vested with less pnwur. nnd whoso government is more truly republican? Wo repeat il Vermont will be thu last in I Ins contest. She Inn indeed given a plegdo of this, in die lirnincsi with which her people hnvu long resisted ihu pressure of anti-republican influnnces on ovety side nflhein. While other states have been proslralcd bnforo the power of ihe federal exeeulivc, Vermont has stood firm as her everlasting mountains. And siioll shu now yield? Why should tdie ? nai is inure to induce her to do it now What ('round of boon rnn ilm executive party have that shu will do it, unless it be in tho upathy and waul or on orgy and concert of the dcnmcrnliu whigs nt din approaching election And is Ibis Ihe t lino for (hem to rolax their efforts -Shall thoy now fold their liHiids, when every abuse of which Ihey have over com plained remains in full lotco when die executive is putting forth Inn utmost eflorls lo fasten hit power upon t tic country-and - ' W111"' when the final experiment to sustain that power by grasping the money influence of the sub treasury scheme is pressed upon tho reluclnnt assent of tho people ?

Wo have, fellow citizens, selected men as candidates for your suffrages, who unite witli rare personal qualifications, nn iioncst und tried devotion to tho principles of our constitution, and an inflexible opposition to Ihu policy whose corrupting nnd dangerous tendencies we hnvo briefly described V'ou need no assurance from us that they will eland firm in maintaining thu true principles of republican democracy. They have nil boon tried nnd found faithful to Ihe principles of the democracy of 'Oft n de mocracy which consists in Ibo power of nn intcligout ami virtuous people, noting thro' llieir constitutional organs a demucracy which is jenlous of power; which has sense and intelligence enough to Ionic beyond names to things; which can penetrate the specious covering in which executive usur pation wraps itself, and which would ns soon yield lo die power of the sword and he bayonet as to the seductions of an in fluence originating in no higher purpose. and directed In no higher end. than the gratification of a scllUh and corrupt am. union.

Thu I linn should be im proved by ibo Whigs, in getting up nnd maintaining nn organization which will ensure the election of ibo Wlii" Ticket by as largo a majority, as that which it recei ved hist year. There is no reason why that majority should be diminished a stnglu vote; thero is no reason why n single man who voted for it ihco, shall not veto for it now. The national administration since that lime has done nothing to gain the con fidence of the people, and has dono every thing to weaken what little hold it might over have had upon their nflections. The same disregard of tho will of thu people, the same opposition to their interests, the same sacrifice of every thing lo party, still prove the chief feature in the management of the government. The same monstrous defalcations of unfaithful officers, and die same re-appoiniiucnt of men known lo be incapable and dishonest, tlill continue. In fact, tho administration is now reduced to its last desperate measures ; il has every thing at blnko in thu fall elections, and having no reputation for honesty to lose, it is taking its course with even more open undisguised profligacy than has cvor before distinguished it. Tho defalcations, and corruptions, and robberies of its officers, are no longer defended or denied; tho determination to fasten (ho sub-treasury upon the country, with the consent of the people or ogaiuat il, with law or without law, is openly avowed, and the whole of the public revenue is to be placed in the hands of men who arc branded defaulters, and who arc only wuiling n favorabio op portunity to follow in the footsteps of Sworlwout nnd Price The 6tolc of Vermont has, nl the pres.. mil moment many and weighty reasons for a bold mid firm opposition to the wild schemes ofthc administration. If the ad ministration ii measurably successful, in the fall elections, the next session of Con gross will witness bolder measures for reducing the country to the condition of a republic in name, but a monarchy in truth. An attempt will ho made to place tho in dustry of the American citizen on a level with tlint of the foreign serf who works for his ten cents per day. Our 'northern man with souiborii principles," stands ready to adopt any project that my win for him the support of John C. Calhoun and his followers.

MR. CLAY. At a meeting convened for the purpose, on the evening of the 23d inst. a committee consisting of Messrs. Heuinn Allen, James I. Cutler, Hurry Ilradley and Ezrn Mcucli, were appointed to confer with Mr. Clay nt Montreal, or some other convenient point, and invito him to test the hospitality of his friends at llurlington The committee, wc believo, left last evening. Should Mr. C. accept the invitation, nnd fix n day cur tain, for his arrival, we shall lose no time in communicating the information to the adjoining towns. Wc sec it staled thai he 's expected at Saratoga on tho lOtli. so, he will probably be here Ihu last of next week, or the first of the week after, and possibly nt commencement, which is on the 7th Aug. A day or two, however, will scttlo tho question. Our friends in Pennsylvania nre so anx iously engaged in quntrellitig with each other, thnl thoy seem lo have neither limu nor disposition lo attend to tho common enemy. It is most melancholy to sou the Whigs of that noble State in such dissen sions, but it is the natural ami inevitable consequence of the course which they hnvo adopted; they have inscribed men, not piiticiples, upon their banner, and this done, there is an end to ull harmony of fueling ur of action. They nro fighting for moil, not for the cause, and they will have the inor liticaliun uf making then own uitscnciuns 11,0 8lcPP'"'ff stone upon which llieir oppo n"ts will mount to power.

But let not her rate bo without Hb uses; let it bo a lossnn to tho Whigs in other States, never to think of their private differences, until the enemy is at their feet. The opponents of the national nilministra tinn constitute an unquestioned mnjority of ihe people of tho United Stntes, but of what vnluc is that mnjority, if it is to be cut up into private broils and disputes about men' Or what value arc men in comparison with the enduring principles upon which tho whig party is founded mid how false to himself and lo his catiso is he who stand quarrelling about, men when those principles are to ho or won ' What's -run mattkii?
