Wo publish to-day the committee's call gross, uui oi mo pcopie, oi puuuc opuiiuni and of every restraint but their own un-l bridled licentiousness. Troy Whig, The Richmond Whig states that a LoJ co Foco meeting was held in that cilyl last week, " to do battle against infuriaJ ted Whitrgcry," at which one of the ora-l tors told the truth respecting the late elec tion, in the following language, which we quote from the Whig. "He commenced bv commentim on the nh-ciice for a State Convention, at this place, on kt;li ,",, when work' wa- to le done, they could not lc found; lint when oilice-', or honors mm uis tinetioiis were to 1 e 1 e-lowud, they 1 e.-ct yon on evcrv side.

It is hardly necessary, ' on the present occasion, to vrgc a general attendance, for, from the present indica tions, the assemblage will be tho largest of the kind ever convened among the Green Mountains. From every section of the state wo have the same cheering accounts. Old men and young men, revolutionary patriots, and those who fought under Harrison in last war, arc coming out by thousand:?, to bear testi mony for Old Tip. and vindicate the reputation of Log Cabins. This is as it should be. Vermont claims the proud distinction of being the only State that lias "never bowed the knee to Baal," and what people under the canopy of heaven have more occasion to rejoice with exceed- i ing gladness at the returning dawn that now lights the political horizon. VP!ic committee of arrangements, ap- just bee iicut by an immense majority, is chosen for Postmaster General; and Churchill C. Cambreleng, the man who declared that the Sub-Treasuary should bo estab lished "in spito of all lamentation" of tho people, after being beaten as a candidate forC.ongrcss, has been selected as a Min ister to Russia. Tho man whom the people would not trust to represent a sin gle city at homo, the President has trust ed to represent the whole, nation at the Court of the largest Empire of the world. Such is the practice of that party which profeesses so much respect for the peo ple. It is but a specimen of tho incon sistency which characterizes tho whole course of the administration. A Gloomy' Pictuuu. The Pittsburg Intelligencer gives a melancholy account of this once prosperous place. During the past year between 4000 and 5000 persons have left the city, from their ina bility to obtain employment. Three fourths of the manufacturing industry has fallen ofi' for want of sales. An extensive Foundry which produced $300,000 worth of castings a year, has entirely suspended, and discharged all hands. From another iron establishment, 100 workmen have been discharged, and every establishment in the city has been compelled by the insane policy of tho administration to cur 'lai! its operations to almost nothing. In more prosperous times says the In telligencer, out of about 200 drays and carts, it was very difficult to get a load of merchandize hauled without delay and inconvenience, now three-fourths of the number arc idle more than half their time; then every industrious man, woman and child coming to our city could get em ployment immediately and their pay every Saturday night, now our mechanics are ' obliged to go to fishing, or to labor in the j country for 18 3-4, 25 or at most 37 1-2 cents a day.

Nothing could better illustrate tlio de sperate fortunes of tlio Administration party, than their catching at Gen.

Of so much consequence is it deemed, that we have been gravely called on by tho Van Huren organ in this place for our opinions on the subject. They aro at ournoighbor's ser vice. Wo think then, 1. That Gen. Harrison's opinions on all the leading principles and measures involved in the present contest are fully and fairly before tho public. 2. That no man who will take the trouble to examine the documentary evi dence winch is every where accessible, can Do at a los as to Oen. Harrison s ontiinents on any or all of the chief topics of the day. 3. That, therefore, it is perfectly right and proper for Gen.

Gr.NTi.r.Mr.N In coincnuenee of the great vari ety of opintous in relation lo Gen.

Harrison' views upon the subject of abolition. This is a mistake. 1 hero is no "variety of opinions at all, among well-meaning, candid enquirers after truth, on the sub ject. Gen. Harrison's views on slavery ind abolition have been so olten and so fully expressed, that no honest mind open to truth can doubt. Of the hundreds of persons who have called upon him for in formation, nine out of ten we venture to say would not have their course affected, in the slightest degree, by any answer ho could give their object not being to pro mote his election, but Mr. Van BurcuV.

This letter having been franhed by Gen. Jackson, and written by his nephew and Private Secretary, was immediately seized upon by his opponents and held ci I to view as a very indelicato proceeding on his part, and as allording proof con elusive, that all his talk about neither seeking or declinim: office was sheer hum bug. Hut .what said we Jachson men on tho occasion ? Why, that Gen. Jackson was not apprized of tho contents of the letter and its peculiar plirasuulotry with regard to the pleasure it would allord lum to bo nominated by the Legislature of Pennsylvania, and that, therefore, it was a most nialiciousand unjustifiable attempt on tho part of his opponents to hold him responsible lor it G.
