But wo have not room to sketch the points even thai hnve been retained by memory. 'I'lie nub Treasury system was farther dt-cussed, nvd the beauties i hereof illnslraied in t he examples of I'rice am Swnrlwnut. Next in order he discuscd the deranged slnto of the cirreucy- viewing i ho course, thn experiments, and the quackery uf Jacksotiism in whose footstep his successor huil promised lo walk. The war upon the Nation! Bank was reviewed, and the result th 'roof. In connexion with tins siihjec', ho drew n glowing i hough gloomy picture of the existing condition of things in our cntnmer cial cities New York 10 pntttcu'nr where our own national hank having heoii de stroyed, for the want thereof our merchant's nnd hankers, with riiriinted and t rt-inbliny iinxicly, are from week to week nwniting the uioveinents of our foreign motors, the thirteen gentlemen in the green pnrlor of the Jin nk ol England, lie avowed hi be lief that aiioiher national bank was neces sary, but he hoped it would be proposed by no one, until n should he sternly demanded once more by the people. lie next discussed the conduct of the present and late executive in their general course of Usurpation their appointments to ofiicc rewards of friends and punching of enemies appointing to office, almost invariably, I hose who have been discarded by the people, and those who have bpcn treacherous to Ihrm. Facts in illustration were given of the most startling character, 'which we have not space lo enumerate. In conclusion, Mr. Clay pressed upon the audience with great eloquence nnd power the necessity of re term, and a change nf rulers to secure ihat reform. The Whig-s, ho knew, am! wo all knew, hail the numbers, and the powi'r, to effect the change, and savo the country, nnd all that was required was union, lie thanked the audience in fooling nnd eloquent terms, for the manner hi which they had received, and the patience wild which they had lis tened to hun, and ho Fat down amid shouts of applause, deafening nnd univer-al. On ascending the piazza, a wreath of flowers, bright and beautiful, twined by some fairy hand, descended upon his brow, dropped by a silken ilucad from the win dow, where sat, amid a group of beautiful jrirls the widow of the ilio.-lrious Clinton. No sooner, however, had the wreath touch ed his head, I linn he lore it from hun. ex claiming "No ! no! no!" and hastened into the hall. Throngs of ladies and gentlemen were then presumed to him among whom was the gallant Scott. The meeting of the two great men was cordial and happy. In the evening a mo-t splendid hall was given for the oce.i-iou, far transcending any pa geant nf t ho kind ever given in Saratoga. The whole count rv and the gardens nf Albany, had been laid under contribution (or wreaths and garlands of flowers, and the spectacle of bright eyes, and beautiful forms, and flowers and music, and nil that is captivating and gay, transcends our humble powers of description. But we must hold up for to-day. MR. CLAY'S VISIT. Hr.Nnv Clay, the distinguished Ken tncky Orator and Statesman, on his way through this City, received the attentions and civilities due lo eloquence and patriot ism. H was known for the Inst ten days that Mr. Clay would pass through here on his return home from Hie Springs. Dot in obedience to his withes, no preparatioiih were intended to bo made for a public Re reption. On Friday afternoon some of our Young Men, unwilling that Albany should withhold from an enlightened Statesman the demonstrations of respect which he was receiving elsewhere, urged the call of n Meo'ing. Wo therefore threw out nn intimation that our Iriend- would meet in formally that evening. Ths intimation drew together some t wo hundred citizen by whom a Committee of five from each Ward wa appointed to meet our Guest ai Troy, and a Committee ol three font each Ward to mak" i-neh brief arrangements as might bo decreed siiituble lor the occa-mn. Mr. Ci.AY left Troy at halfpusi 5 o'clock in the afternoon of Saturday, with Mr. John Townsknd. the lion I) D. Barnard and Alderman Bav, in a Barouche, pre ceded by the Committee of Reception. At West Troy a large number of Carria gos and c'Uizmis on horseback joined. The balcony of a Public lIoue in Gibbunsville was thronged wPh Ladies, by whom, as the Procession pas'od, a shower of Gar lands, Wreaths and Bnqiiets, were thrown into Mr. Clay's Carnage, amid the waving of handkerchiefs and III J accluinat ions ol the people. All the way from Troy, the Procession kept augmenting its number of Horsemen nnd Carriages, until, when its ndvanc" reached the Patroon's, the linu extended almost back to the Gate, or nearly two miles. At the Patroon's Mr. Clay was greeted by the citizens in waning with three henrly cheers ; and from lliencu lo Ins lodgings nt the Eagle, the scene was one of genuine, spontaneous, "boarl-felt enthusiasm. Vho proccfcsion acquired volume oh it progressed, oud from the Mansion lloiisu to the Eagle, Market street was wedged full nf People, who rent the air with acclamations. Nor on this occasion wero the l a u i i:s nnmiiid. lul of the hnniago vMiicb beauty renders lo virtue. They waved their graceful wil cornea from every window. Arriving in front of the Eagle, Mr, Clay, in a brief, but most feeling and eloquent manner, tendered his grateful acknowledg ments for the enthusiastic and gratifying demonsi rations of respect from the citizens of the copilol of the Empiro Stale, which was responded to by loud and reiterated acclamations. Those who saw both the reception given to Mr. Van Bonr.N nnd that given to Mr. Ci.av, will be. at no loan to determino how each stands with ihe citizens of Albany. The former was given to the President ol the United blntes the lalter to a citizen ol Kentucky. The former was in the course, of preparation for four weeks. the latter was the result of ono ilnyV nntieu. The former was nu Official nnd Military Pageant iho lalter an on rising of the people.

THE TRUTH. Judge White, in his speech ai Knoxvillo, lays ii down na a principle, that ever ad ministration will impress its own character upon its inferior officers. This is as true as holy writ. If officers find there U to bo a strict accountability, nnd no excuses taken, there will be few defaulters j but whenever they find, as they havo done, that it will end in n lew vile threats, nnd a good letter or two, certifying that ihey are good Democrats, and good electioneer ers. we shall havo lit 1 1 u savo defalcations, to expect Irom Ihom. Tho truth is, nays the Judge, we are mining tho country by excessive modern politeness; a public officer purloins the money he is paid lo handle and tnke care of.and if he can oniy innnag to keepenouh to give good dinners, he is considered and broken o as n kind, good fellow an un fortunate mnn--n defaulter and is consid ered n lit associate and companion for our Dei society. This is nil wrong. Whenever ho is called a thief, pointed at as one, and scon led from society because ho is dishonest, wo shall check this alarming and growing mischief, but not until thou. 0"Tho dilTeruncc between the Rocention purchased for Mr. Van Huron nnd I fiat A'l'eeu to Mr. Clay, said a Whig to a Loco l' nco, is that ono was rot un and the other got itself ifv -Evening Jour.. j !'

And yet pot one of this desperate gang of plunderers has been removed from office- by the President. Theso aro the "victors," and these arc the "'oi7" they have strip, ped from a "vanquished" Peoplo.

Such is thn character and such the principles of tho party upon which thu hardy sons ofthe Green Mountains will he called upnn on tho first Tuesday of next September to pronounce their verdict. Such nro the men whom tho Tory party in thin slata now call upnn you to sustain by placing Nathan Smilic in the Executive chair of Vermont. And whilo they seek to glosa over such monstrous corruption ns wo havo here exposed, they denounce Iho Administration of Governor Jettison as oppressive and aristocratic, and stigmatize him as a Bank hireling and Federalist!

But wo defy the wholo tribe of Tory papers in this state to specify a single act of Governor Jenioon, which is jiibtly censurable. We defy them to point to n single measure of his four yenrs Administration which is anti. republican or nristocrntic in its tendency. Wo do nnt. indeed, claim for him tho pro round wisdom, vast learning, and polished manners which eo eminently distinguish Nathan Smilic, nor can he, like the illus trious Nathan, boast of being iho author of resolutions on Bank Reform which have been sneered at by all the leading men of his own parly, nnd voted down, by over, whelming majorities, for ten successive years, by ihu Legislature and Pi:opm: of Vermont.. But we do aver that he is a man of sound common senso and perfect integrity, and that he has administered thu Government of this Mate, for a series of years, in a manner entirely satisfactory to a majority of the Fcoplc. Wo therefore call upon ihe Sons of the Mountains to sharpen their spears and gird on their armor for the coming contest. Wc invoke I he Freemen of Vermont to rush to thu rescue of Ihe "Farmer Governor" against the desperate attacks of tho PLUNDERERS OF THE PEOPLE. Wc exhort ihe friends of liberty, in every section of the state, to rally, in solid columns, against the trained but mercenary bands, and Priutonan cohorts of Power. TORY ECONOMY. Let every voter read the nriicle on our first page headed Mr. Van Buren and the public uxp. nditures, m. I; en from the New York Conner am! Enquirer. It is a complete and triumphant rtttitalion of the sophistical argument of the Washington Globe Van Buren's mouth piece which is now going the rounds of the Administra tion papers in this state, and was copied into the Sentinel a short time since. The Editor ofthe Globe is paid hy ihe Govern ment, two iiuNini:D tiiou-am) dollars ei:r. annum, for laboring to itialiu the Pe p . He, i. ve ibai ihe Administration of ! Miir'iu Vno Huron who sne-ds FOI.'TY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS A YEAR m.ire cconomica ilmo i I -. i nf l.,,i Ciui.vcv Adams, who spent only thirteen millions. And the petitioned pre.-scs in Ihisoiate, place so low an estimate on the capacity of their readers, as lo supposo they will believe this monstrous falsehood. But we exhort the People of Vermont' to remember that when Mr. Adams was president, he expended onli; thirteen mill ions per annum -jut half a million a year more than the annual expenses of his pred. cce.-sor President Monroe. And wc nlso exhort them to remember that the Jackson papers, from Maine to Georgia, denounced Ins Administration for its extravagance and stigmatised him ns a prodigal and spend thrift. That they calied on Ihu People lo turn him out of office, and elevate to pow cr Andrew J'ck-on, who promised to re form thu abn.,.- nf Mr. Adams, retrench I llu; n,llll"' expenditures, nnd administer the Government i n more economical prin ciples. Wo furl her exhort the Freemen of Vermont, lo remember how these pledges were redeemed how Jackson and Van Bu rcu have cut down tho annual expenditures, from thirteen to FORTY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. This is what the Globe calls Economy. This is what the Van Bu ren presses in this slato call refro.m ! and if you will oniy elect the illustrious Nathan Smilic for your Governor, they promise to reform ynur Bunks in the same way. Surely no one can be so unreasanablu as to vole against Natha;-. the reformer, RECEPTION OF MR. CLAY AT SARATOGA SPRINGS. Wo refer our readers to an article from the New York Spectator, which we have placed on our first page, fur an account of the rccoption ot tho Great Orator and Statesman of tho West at Saratoga springs. This is what wo suppose the Sentinel would call another failure. But in truth how nobly docs the spontaneous, enlhiisinalic welcome, every whero extend ed to the votoron statesman of Kentucky, contrast with thu invariably lortnal and. chilling receptions of Martin Van Ruren. Tho respect paid to tho President m his progress through the country, is yielded ts a matter of course, to Iho oflico which he holds. Thoru is nothing voluntary or cor. flial about it it is all an artificial show, got up for pnlitical ellect.

The People have triumphed gloriously over the Office holders. For weeks and months previous lo iho lato Western Elections, the Globe flittered its readers with the most positive assurances that the Administration would preserve ita majority in the House. But the People, thanks be to Heaven and a good cause, havvjigurcd out quite a different result It is now pretty well settled, that Ihe most Democratic Department ofthe Government will be whig lo the core.
