FRIDAY M 0 U N I N G, M A Y. 2a Geoiuib W. llAnunn, tlio Tory Post Master of Montpclicr, and Nathan B. IIaswki.i., tlio salaried supcrintendnnt of tlio Break-Water in this placo, and a staunch Jefferson Democrat during the 'last war, liavo tapped the drum for a .'general rally, at Woodstock, of tlio oflico holders in tliis state. And wo liavo no 'doubt that tlio Marshall and Custom House Ofliccrs,Post Masters and Pension Agents mado quito a rcspcctablo turn out on tho occasion in point of numbers. These patriotic gentlemen, perceiving no doubt, that their term of office is most likely to expire some time in the courso of next March, probably wish to signalize their gratitude to their chief for the libe rality with which he has scattered tlio loaves and fishes among thorn heretofore. Or it may bo those paid patriots' arc so deluded as to believe that by an exhibition of so many long visages at one place and at tho samo time, they can excite the sympathy of the People and induce them to spare them a short time longer. But gentlemen it is "no go." The chilli Jingcrs of death arc on you. Your 'lurid' countenances will proclaim to all who see you that you know your doom is scaled. The decree has gone forth,and the tkoi'LE say "O. K !" THE KITCHEN MANIFESTO. Amos Kendall has resigned the office of Post Master General and has engaged to enlighten the people of the United States on the beauties of Loco Foco Democracy, through the columns of the Washington Globe. Amos modestly dis courses after this wise on his motives and Intentions, which he supposes to be of trrcat importance to the Nations und Kingdoms of the earth: I wMi toMitMV i he whole world that no di ticfiu-tion with the President or his administration, iioindiioition to render it the utmost support in mv nowur, nodMriM of it measures or its tlc-it?ns has had any elllft in determining me to preler a private ton public .-tation. On the contrary, my confidence in the President, in Ii is integrity, hw principle--, and his limine?, have tnereaaod from the day I was lirst ollieially u-.-ocialed with him ; any relations with every mend er of his Cabinet liavo lieeu iniiformlv of'a inot friendly character i (iiul my devotion to the meat measure which have been, and still are, siMiuucd hy the Administra tion, knows no abatement. I lie leaning prmci i)Io avowed hv the P.-cident 1 look upon as es sential to the preservation of liberty and a Govern ment of tln nwmk' : ami if I had suiMiOsed that my resignation could endanger their success, I fliould iiiivo clinic lo cilice as 1 would to lite. To what an extremity must tho fortunes of the President be reduced when it be comes necessary in order to sustain him, to employ such a character as Amos Kendall to certify to his capacity and patriotism. And how kind it is in Amos, and modest withall, thus to assure the whole vniversc of his undiminished confi dence in Mr. Van Btiren. When before, in the history of this Government, has it over been found necessary for a retiring Cabinet officer, publickly to proclaim his "confidence in thciiitcgrily and firmness" of the President of the United States? Docs not this eagerness in Amos to give Iiis certificate of good conduct to Mr. Van Burcn indicate that there is "something rotten in the state of Denmark1?" PENNSYLVANIA. I Blnco tho Harrisburg nominations tho Whigs havo won from tho administration tho states of Connkcticut, Ruodh Isl and and VmoiNiA all of which gavo their last electoral vote for tho Tories. By tho following which wo cut from tho Phila delphia National Gazette it would seem that Pennsylvania too is coming. These returns show moro than A thousand net gain for tho whigs within six months in a district which hardly casts 1000 votes in all! ! ! As our neighbor of tho Sentinel is so good at cyphering can ho inform us how many more such victories it will re quire to ensure tho Key Stono Stato to Matty? From the Uedford Knquirerl BEDFORD ELECTION. "clow we give a list ot the Whig and Loco Foco majorities at tho elections of last October nnd last week. We do it to stiow the increase since last fall, nnd for the purpose of assuring our friends that correct principles nre beginning to gam the ascendancy. The vole given was not o large as that of lat (all, but of those who remained at lmme. and did not attend the election, we assert without hesitation, n majority were opposed to Van Huron ; and it all had turned out, the aggro- gale majority in the county lor our caiuimato wouiu nave been neariy a iiiuusanu.

Wo suppose it to bo the object of this publica tion to support the waning fortunes of tho Toricst Tho typographical execution of the paper is very creditable to tho pub lishers. Tho salutatory extends through several columns and, so far as wc read, fully sustains the reputation for candor and ability which Mr. E. established while at the head of the State Paper. Tnn ltnciU'TioN in Baltimouh. A correspondent of tho N. Y. Express writes that tho hospitablo editor of tho Baltimore Patriot, Isaac Monroe, Esq., opened his very comfortable Cabin, for the full ingress of every member of tho Press, and to others who chose to join hint. There was a plate, a knife and a fork for every visiter and the string of the latch was not pulled in to any visiter. Many of the Whig editors were there from dif ferent sections of tho country, and among them some of tho veterans of tho Press. We hope for an opportunity to return in some small measure tho kindness of our brother of Baltimoro und of our Whig brethren. CONNECTICUT. The Legislature of Connecticut assem bled at New Haven on Wednesday the Gth inst. In the Senate, in the absence of the Lieutenant Governor, Mr. Ilendco was chosen President pro. tern., and Nelson Brewster, Clerk. The House elected Charles J. McCurdy, of Lyme, Speaker, and Jonathan A. Welch, Clerk. On Thursday,Governor Ellsworth delivered the annual executive speech, from which we learn that tho admin trative aiiairs ot tlio totato arc m a most prosperous condition. Connecticut is free from debt, and possesses in the Trait sury the sum of 1S.544. This sum, with thr avails of u one cont tax, dividends on bank stock, and sundry other other small cceipts, arc sufficient to meet its ordi nary expenses, which do not vary much from SSO.000. The School Fund amounts to 82,040,000 ; the dividend made last year was S103,345,which has been divided amongst 82.C7C children. Tho State Prison is in a flourishing condition : num ber of convicts, 159 ; profits last year be yond expenses, $4,500. The militia numbers 40,000 men, who ore generally well armed and equipped. A. great portion of the messago relates to finance, banking, the embarrassments of the country, and tho policy of the Gen eral Government. The condition of tho Banks in the Stato of Connecticut is thus presented : TORY ECONOMY. Let no one fail to read tho letter of Shawniut concerning the princely expen ditures of Martin Van Buren. This i the man who abused the Administration of John Quincv Adams for its extrava gance, and promised tho people retrench ment if they would raise him to power, Tho people listened to his promises They gave him the reins. But instead of retrenching he has augmented the Nation ol expenditures from thirteen to thirtynino millions of dollars per annum. The let tcr of Shawmut gives the particulars, dc tails the items of this extravagant increase of expenses. It shows how tho honest yeomanry liavo been deluded by tho cry of 'Reform,' while millions and millions of tlio People's money havo been sqnan tiered in purchasing Brussells and Turkey Carpets, gold plate, and French bedsteads to adorn our Republican palace. Nor is this all. But ornaments and gew-gaws o the most costly kind, such as arc seen only at tho court of Victoria, must bo brought over from Paris to set off tho 'East Room" in a stylo sufficiently gor gcous to receive tho Aristocratic nabobs of South Carolina whilo Cologno water nnd Otto of Roses arc imported to pcrfumo tho red whiskers of your Democratic chief. And this is the man who curls his haughty lip to deride the honest pov crty of the scarred and war-worn veter an of the West. Let no freeman fail to rood tho letter ef Shuwrnut. "From the report of the Bank Commissioners. you will perceive that they have discharged their duties willi vigilance, and. 1 believe, wilh great lidelily. Thcdeiail of their proceedines shows their acquaintance with the subject committed to their trust as well as tlieireiiorts to discharge its deli cate and high rcsponsibilties-. It exhibits like wise to the liublic eve the condition of our Rinks' i-ei meir report lie careiuily perused, (lie broad range of their Dowers be considered, and the ex- tent to winch these powers have been exercised, nnd we may be sau'sfisd that these inanitions are soimdnd deserving of general confidence.

They are .SIUV.UJ itn-miiicu wan iiiu pruspcruy ui oi an clas ses: until oflate.tbev have been considered bene ficial to all j and I see no reason to doubt that they are now struggling to sustain what remains of en terprise and credit." The House of Representatives on Wcndcsday nominated the Hon. Jabcz W. Huntington, of Norwich, to tlio Sen of tho United State, in placcofMr. Belts deceased. At the first balloting, he re ccivel 112 votes, out of a total of 203. Necessary td a choice, 102. The Sen ate have not yet acted upon tho nomina tion. On Tuesday, by a vote of 102 to 98, tho Hottso rejected a resolution giving tho election of Justices of tho Peace to the People, and on Wednesday, by a, still larger majority, negatived u proposition to givo the election of Probato Judges to the People. N. Yorker. MR. PRICE. Fow men could land on our shores o greator notoriety. Sinco his departure thcro is not a press in this country that lias not mcntioneu Ins namo in a variotv of ways. It was declared by many that lie would never return. Yesterday, how ever, no landed at White Hall, with wuo anu hock oi nine ones, llo never looked better, nor appeared in finer spir its.

CONGRESS. in the Senate, on Thursday, the Vice President presented u Report from the Navy, giving some details and explanations of the Annual Expendi tures of llie tiovcrnincnt from 1829 to 1810, in answer toa resolution previously adopted. A mo tion of Mr. Hubbard, to print 30,000 copies ofthu iicpon, i in an animated uenate on the charac ter of the Expenditures of the Government, in which Messrs. lienton, Hubbard, Drown, Preston and others, participated. in the nou.-e, the greater part ofthc day was consumed in the discussion m Commilce of the Whole of Mr. Adams's bill to insure the more faith ful execution of the laws relating to the collection of duties on imports-. Hefore the debate was brought to a close the Coniniiiti-u m.i'. nml ilm House took tip the amendments of the General Ap- piupriaie uiu, in which tney concurred by u vote of 73 lo 43. In iheSenale on Friday no business was tran saeled worthy of notice, and that body adjourned until Monday. In the House on Friday and Saturday the discus sion of Mr. Adams's bill was continued. The principal speakers were Messrs. Adams, Lincoln, Sergeant, Hriggs, Hollinan, Curtis, Monroe, Illicit, Vanderpoel, Underwood and Craig. The particular subject of debate was the amendment to llie Dili section, and the substitute proposed by Mr. Adams. The amendment tirovides. tlm't "whenever n suit against any Collector or other oiuccroi ine customs, i()r uiu seizure of goods, wares, or merchandize, unlawfully imported into the United State-, orforfcilcd (or the unlawful entry ot the same, shall bo tried in any court of the it Slates, in which suit is involved any question of iimics mi miioiiiuu oi goous, wares or merchan dize, no person having the same interest with that orthe party to the suit, inthu question at is sue, shall be competent as a witness on such trial. unless called to testily bv the n i-i.n nm- l was oljected to the proposition that it was subver sive ui vuiiiiiiuii lawniid oi individual rights. The question was then taken on the motion to sin'Ui; uui uiu scv-uuii .uiu msfii uiu luiienuincni. it was intended uy tne opponents ol the motion, in case the motion to strike out nnd insert succeeded, then to strike out the motion as nuicndcd. The vole was -J'J lor the motion, mid CD against it. As there was no quorum, the House adjourned. On Monday the same discussion w.is nnnimnnl the whole day in the House. The motion to strike out tlicuth section and insert Mr. Adams's amend inenl, providing that, in n suit asmVt the Col lector, for goods, seized for fraudulent importa tion orentry, the lesiimciiy of merchants interest ed in the question involved in the suit shall not be taken, was agreed to. Mr. Knelt then moved to strike out the section, as amended, but it vasot. A debate followed on several points, involved in the measure, and, at length, the bill was reported to me iiuuk, wiiuoiii iuriiier amendment, air. Holmes, of C., tooktholloorto speak in oppo- iiiou in uiu inn, una ine iioiiseihcii adjourned. In the Senate a Message was received IVnm il,n President, in answer to the resolution of Mr. Hen ton, calling for the names of all officers, agents or contractors who had sold post drafts orexrhaii"ed them for notes otany banks. It aiiiicars that Mr. Denton had derived information from one Joel Crittenden, residing in Georgetown, a kind of iisciii ur employe oi me uoverninent. that abuses have taken place in relation to the sale of govern ment drafts, which induced the call he had made. On the motion to print the answers of the dillercnt agents, .Mr. Denton took occasion to denounce in unmeasured terms, the Hank ofthc United Slates ot rensylvauia, which he charged wilh sending agents all over the country in search of govern ment agents to buy up government drafts. Mr. Webster said thought if the naents of the govern ment had acted corruptly in selling drafts, the cor rective was with the executive, and neiil not nnll iori:i denunciations against an institution over which the government had no control. The light given by the papers presented thereto-day, allbr ted the best commentary on the present vitiated slate of the currency, which so much needed a corrective. It was in vain for the government to attempt to pav snccie in anv case, when ilu no. ncral currency of the country was not specie ; it would always end in having one currency for the people and another for the government, while the uuers ui meson and ine honest producers ot wealth were always sure to be llie iuiured nam- 'Ph.. document was ordered to be printed. A private bill vM-ui-u uuiisiiii-raniu interest, it was lor thu relief oi uannan wighton, a widow ol the first oilicer killed in the Ifevolmionnry War. Mr. Webster, Mr. Preston and Mr. Crittenden, were eloquent in its support. It was opposed by Messrs. Denton, Hubbard, Allen and Calhoun, but was ordered to be engrossed by a vote of 31 to 9. In the Senate, on Tuesday, the bill establishing a system of uniform bankruptcy was called up by Mr. Wall, who spoke at great length against the bill reported hy the committee, which provides only for voluntary bankruptcies. He was followed by Mr. Clayton, who defended the report of the com mittee, of which he is a member. Mr. Tnllmadge introduced n resolution inquiring into the expe diency of a grant of land from the General Gov ernment to aid Ncvv-Vorkin making a railroad so ns to connect the waters of Laku Ontario with Champlnin, parallel with the waters of the Kiver

Si. Lawrence, and to enquire what elli-ct tho same wouiu nave on me transportation ot tne mails and munitions of war. In tho House the discussion of Mr. Adams's bill was continued. Several amendments were ollered by Mr. Holhiian and others, but Mr. Adams Mren uoiislycontended against all amendments, and the bill was ordered to a third readiiur, nnd linnlly passed, suiistantially as reported. lh vote was yeas 122, nays 00. Tins is a majority much more decisive than that hv which some of the most im portant measures havo been carried. Whatever may do the citeet o thu lull on tho revenue, it is decidedly unpopular among the importers, ns is ovi'denced by the measures they havo adopted in this ciiv and elsewhere to secure its defeat. On Wednesday theScnatn was occupied with an nnimalod discussion of tho General Dankriint Law. Tho House was cnc-aircd on the subject of the Printing of Congrcsi tut n6 action was had In'i citncr iiuiuti Tiuai. ot CoMMouonn Elliott. Tho Court Marshall for tho trial of Com modore Elliot,' assembled at Philadelphia on Monday, and consisted of tho following officers : Commodoro Jacob Jones, Pres ident, Commodorn Lewis Warrington, Win. M. Crane, John Downcs,and James Renshaw; Captains Charles V. Morgan, David Conner, John D. Sloat, and Georgo W. .Storcr ; John M. Read, Esq. District Attorney, Judgo Advocate. The substance of tho charge is as follows : Cruelty, under certain well-known cir cumstances, O Passed Midshipman Bar tan, in tho Mediterranean ; unoflicer-like conduct toward Lieut. Hunter, at Port Mahon, in the island of Minorca ; carry ing from Port Mahon to Norfolk, on the ship Constitu.ion, certain jacks, jennies, and other ani.iials, thereby disabling the ship from full and effective service in case of emergency ; unofiiccr-liko conduct in instigating and aiding in a subscription on board the shi) to present him with apiece of plate, andin having the inscription for that ono enctaved on several additional pieces ; cruelty in decreeing unusual and excessive piuishment to certain seamen under commind; not using, during mu tinous conduit on board the ship in Hamp ton Roads, ail means in his power to sup press the sane ; and on the succeeding day, causing tho crew to bo call together previous to discharge, and expressing his satisfaction and approval of their general bchaviorduring the voyage. Tho preliminary matters wcro got through with on Monday, and on Tuesday Lictitcnats Hunter ar.d M'Blair were ex amined. The cxamiiution ofthc former occupied more than two hours. The trial will probably continue for several days. A Ri:mc or the Or.ura Timk.

In 1754, the sc cond meeting house was built ; and Jacob Crowinshield, who then owned a farm in Wenham, was a benefactor to a consid erable extent towards the cost of its crco tion. This vane was given to Mr. C. and then placed upon a tree upon his farm where it remained until within a few years. It is a rusty old fellow one hundred and fifty-two years old ; and and has stood the buflctings of the winds and storms a century and a half. It has seen, and conformed to, many changes in its day ; although it has remained substan tially unaltered ; a thing of gicat incon stancy, but of long endurance. Sheriff's Sale.
