There cannot be a single doubt as to t ho acqui. licence of the Great Whig Parly nf the Union in the reult of your deliberation.

It ilin Iriends -or favorites aro disappointed, they are bound lo forget their disappointment they are bound by every cnnidcral'nn of patrio tism by their hopes of changing and dp--pirnying this corrupt Administration : by heir desire to est n hltslt a purpr and boiler "Government, to acquiesce in the numina t'ton which has bcpn made.

William Henry Harrison and John I yler are medicine which will curt us of the sacrific-'. if sacrifice there b. bill there is none. Go hump then, gentlemen of the Convention, remembering what you nave seen here.

When under the impuUo of political acorbuy, one (eels prono to disparage I lit jui claims nf General Harrison to tho con. i-itloration nl the people, there are two cir. ciimtancoj, the recollection nf which ought it would seem lo nrrcsl ihe incipient pur- poo. It should bo remembered, in Ihe first place, that two ijears have just gone by, when a majority of the citizens of Ohio would have raised him to the loftiest post of rerponiibtlity nnd honor nnd that such nn erpresiion of popular opinion it entitled lo some weight, in estimating individual char aclcr.

A ihnll of electric sympathy with the aged veteran ran through the as semblage. His remarks wero character ized by the highest order of eloquence : nnd when he spoke of hunsolf as trembling on the brink of iho grave, and only watting to see the cnuniry delivered from what he deemed misrule and corruption before ho took his departuip, his hearers could scarce restrain Iheir emolions.-Mr. Uriggs closed a brief response on the part of Vermont lo the nomination presented, with an allu sion lo iho uncnnqiiered niiitudo ol that Slain, and her determination to maintnin that aliunde until her Electors appear nl Ihe doors of the White House to demand its surrender, likelier Eathan Allen nt,tlie L'ntrn f Ticondrozn, when ho demanded the surrender of that fortress "In iho name oflhe Great Jehovah and the Continental Congress !"

Their dales are lo the 21st from London, nnd 22d from Liverpool. The letter bair had not reached the post office last night, nnd being in con sequence deprived n our private corres- pontience, we aro compelled to have recourse lo the public journals lor the extracts we subjoin. Judging from these, wo do nnt think that any material change has occurred in the slatn of ofTuirs, sinco our last advices.

The BriiiMi army having completely truinphed in Cabnol, is returning to its former quarters, leaving hnwever n Miffi cienl fnrce in tha cnoquered country In support the policof Ihu Government. Frnm France there is nothing important. The derangement in our Banking syniem has, however, ns might bo suppuped, nnt been without its effect on our interests in that country. The situation of Spain seems little im proved, notwithstanding Don Carlos has left the sceuo oflhe conflict. Madrid whs menaced with an insurrection, nnd trnops had been summoned to the capital by the Government to nverawo tho population.

Above two hundred million of Ameri can stale stocks is now hold by foreign capitalists, and recent occurrences hnve creatoil sonio suspicions as to their sound ness. It has even been questioned whether i elate had power to contract a debt ebrnad. The Barings havo addressed a letter to Mr. Webster, aking his le;al opin'.nn on the subject. To which Mr W. replies at some length, giving an unqual ified nffifinative--that the slates have full constitutional power lo create loans, both at home and abroad, Wc quote the con cluding paragraph. Ihopelmay be justified by existing circumstan cesto close this letter with tlio expression of an opin ion if a ni'ire scneral nature. It i, that I believe tho citizens of thu United States, like all lionct men, repaid debts, whether public or private, and whether at hone or abroad, to be of moral as well as local obli patioi, ; and I trust I may appeal to their history, from ihe nifinent when those state? took their rani; anion" llie nations of tho earth, to the present time, for proof that this lioliel is well luniuleil : au:l il it were pn-si ble tl.atany one of the states should at any time so en. tirely loso her self-respect and forget her duty as to violato lliu faith solemnly pledged for her pecuniary engagements, 1 believe there is no country upon eartli, not even that ofthii injured creditors, in whirh such a proceeding would meet wilh less coiintenanco or indul gence than it would receive from tho great inas of ihe Ainetienn people.

A motion was then made to amend the rule requiring iho viva voce vote for clerk, printer, &c, and, pending thedebatoon this question, tho House adjourned.
