Tliu first part ofit contains a honu- tiful tribute to the memory of his brave com panions in-arms svho fell under Jlaj. Antlio ii)', in tlio early clays of the republic, and of those who tinder bis own command laid down their lives in the "second war of our indepen dence." The concluding portion contains General Harrison's views of the present con test now going on between the two parties that divide the country; and it is highly gratifying to perceive how mild and concil iatory are his sentiments. Notwithstanding the veteran detractors of the party, with their humble imitators, have exceeded themselves In the abuse which they have heaped upon the head of this venerable patriot; he slill stands calm and dignified ; speaks of the Ex ecutive with respect, and shows in every sit uation the temper and manners of the fine old Virginia gentleman. The election of such a man will be far more conducive both to the physical and moral interests of the country, than would that of any politician however eminent. The nation has too long been agitated by the fierce spirit of party. It needs repose. Disquieted and torn by ad verse factions, that were becoming from jcar to year still more embittered against oach other, our constitution itself was in dan ger of being subverted. For such a re-action or revolution rather, as is now going on, Gen Harrison is precisely the man to stand at the head of the government. With no personal animosities or partialities to gratify, ho will undoubtedly act as the President of the peo ple not as the President of a party. To the next four years, therefore, wo may confi dently look forward as to a political millejii- j tim; when the fierce demon? of party shall lie chained up, and justice, truth and honesty once more reign paramount among the peo ple.

Fellow Citizens: I am not, upon this occasion, before yon in accor dance with my own individual views or wislu . H Qiascver appeared to me, that the office of l'n dent of the United Slates should not be xuWi( after l any individual ; but that tlio people should spontnin u-ly, and with their own freo will, ncconl the diMiniaii.-hul Jionor tu tlio man whom they believed would best per form its important duties. Entertaining these mows, 7 fhould, fellow citizen", have remained at home, but for theprcssingimd friendly invitation which 1 have received from the citizens nf lYrrysliiirgh, Mid the ear nestness with which its acceptation: was urged upon me by friends in whom I trusted, and whom J am now proud to sec around me. If, however, fellow-eili.cns 1 had not complied with that invitation if I hail re mained nt home believe, me, my fiiends, that mv spirit would have been with you; for where, in this beautiful land, is there a place calculated, as this is, to recall lout; past reminiscences, and revive long Numbering, but nut wholly extinguished, emotions in any bosom ! In casting my eyes around, follow citizens, they rest upon the spot where the gallant Wav.ni: triuin phed bo gloriously over his enemies, anil carried out those principles which it seemed his plrasuo to impress upon mind, and in which it has ever been my happi ness humbly to attempt to imitate him. It was there fellow eili.ens, I saw the banner of the United Slates float in triumph over the ling of the enemy. There it was where was first laid the foundation of the prn'po rity of tho now wide spread and beautiful West. It was then; I beheld thcindignant Eagle frown upon the British Lion. It was there I saw the. youth of our land carry out tho lesson they imbibed from the gal lant Wav.ne the noblest and thu best an American can acquire to die for his country when called to do so in its defence. At this moment the speaker's rye fell upon fien. Hedges, when he said : "fien. Hidges, will you come here 7 You have stood by my side in the hour of battle nnd I cannot bear to see you nt so ureal u distance nou-." Immense cheering followed this ron.-idi rate recondition, and tho cries of "raise him up," "place liim by tho side of the old General." had scarcely been uttered, when Gen. Hodges was carried forward to the stand. The General continued : It was there I saw interred my beloved companions tlm companions of my youth, li vyas not in accordance with the stern i ti incttcof military life, then to mourn their departure but 1 may now drop a tear over their graves, at tho recollection of their virtues and worth. In 1703, fellow-citizens, I received mv commission to frvo under Gen. Wayne. In 1701, '1 was. his aid nt the batlleof. Miami. Nineteen years nftrrwaril" I htteHho honor of again hcinj.; associated with nnny'nf thoso who were my companions in arms then. xVinc tccn years afterwards, 1 found myself Commander-in-Chief oftho North Western Army: but I fmntlno diininition in tho bravery of tho American soldier. 1 found Hio same spirit of valor in all not in the icgular soldier only, butiii thocnroltat militia and volunteers nlso. What glorious reminiscences do the view of nil these scenes around mo recall to my mind ! When 1 con sented to visit this memorable spot, I expected that a thousand pleasant associations (would to God there werenn painful associations mingled with thcni)woiild be. recalled that 1 should meet thousands Of mv fellow citizens hero and among lliem many of my old com panions met hero to rcur a new nhar to lil rty in the placoof tho one which bad men have prostrated. And, fellow-citizens, (continued llio General,) I will not attempt to conceal from you, that in coining hero I expected that I should receivo from you, those ti deuces of rcgnrd which a generous pcoplo arc cve'r willing to bestow upon those whom they believe, to bo honest in their endeavors to servo their country. I receivo thesa evidences of rcgnrd nnd esteem as the only reward at all ndeiiiato to compensate, for tlio an- iiencs sunt iiiigmsii which, in uio past, i experienced upon this spot. Is thcro any man of sensibility, or possessing a feeling of self-respect, who asks what thoso feelings we.ro I Do you suppose that tho Commander-in-Chief finds his reward In tlln eliller nnd "plcndo-of tho camp? or ill tho forced Dheilienco of mo masses arounet mm f Thcro aro not pleasures under nil circumstances these nro not tho rewards which ft soldier seeks. I ask any man to place himself in rny situation, nnd then say whether the cxlreiuo pain and nnguMi which I endured, and which every pi rson si milarly situ-itcd must havo endured, can meet with sny mlcriunto compensation, except by bucIi expres sion of tho confidence nnd gratitude of tho people-, ns that with which, you fellow-citizens, have thin day honored mnl These feelings nro common to nil enni inandrrn of scn-o nnd sensibility.

I could point from where I now stand, to places where I felt this nilxictv pressing heavily upon me, its I thought of the fearful cone (indices of u niixtiikoou my putt, or tho want of judg ment on the part of others. I Itnew thcro were wive's who had given their husbands to the Held mothers who had clothed their sons for battle nnd I knew that these expiating wives mid mothers were looking for tho safe return' of their husbands nnd sons.

No person had nny hand Hi nnv disnnsitioii of the army. Every step of warfare, whether for good or ill, was taken under my own ilucction, nnd of none other, ns manv who now hear mo know. iieiiitT every movement would, or would not, pass the criticism of Honnparte or Wellington, I know not; but, whether they would induce applause or censure, iinon mvself it must fall. nut, tciiow citizens, still another motive induced inc toneeept tlio munition which hud lieen so kindly ex tended to inc. 1 knew that hero I should lueel with many who had foimht and bled under mv eoniinnnd that I should have the pleasure of taking them by tho oami, ii in reeuriiiig wmi iiicui io mo scenes oi ine past. 1 expect d, too, to meet with u few of the nrcat and good men vet surviving, hy whoso ellorls our ficcdoiu wns ne'liievcd.

The resolution, in fact, did not terminate until 1701 until tho battle was fought upon the battle ground upon which my eye now rests Miami.) War continued wiih the'in from the com mencement of the revolution until the victory of Wnyne, lo which 1 have just alluded. The great high way to the West was the scene of unrcssiug hlniiuh- i.,r 'i'i,.. ,. i,,. i ,,:.., ,i:, ,.,; i wi... ter. are the soldiers who tcrininitcd thu war of the revo lution, in fuel, exehidi d, wl'do those hy whom it wns beL'uii or a portion of them, nre rewan led? I will tell vou why. The poor rci'inant of Wnyno's iirmy had hut few advocates, wh'fe those who hiul served in the revolution proper had many fiieuds. .Scattered ns they were over all parts of the Union, vml in large numbers they coull exert an influence at the ballot box. They could whisper thus in the cars of those who sought their miliieiico nt the polls: "lake care, for I have wailed lorn; onontrh for whnt hm be-eiitiroin ised. The former plea if povi rty can no longer be mauc. i no ueasiiryis nowiuii. luieo cure, your scat is in daiiL'cr." Oh! vcs. everv thinir that has been promised shall be nttende-d to if you will give me yourxoies.- minis way iciiow.ciiizeiis, laruy, nut jiartial, justice was dono lo the sildiers of the resolu tion. 'Ihcy made liiends liyllicir inlliii ncn at tho allot-hux. Hut it was ihllerciit with Gen. Wavue's soldiers. They svere few in number, nnd they had but one or ts o humble advocates tei spenk for them in Congress. The result has been, justice has been with- 'id. 1 have said that the soldiers under Wayne cxneri- enci'd greater hnnlships even than the soldicis of the revolution, 'l lus is so. l.very onecanaiuireciatethc difference between an Indian and a tegular war. When wounded in battle, the soldier iim.sl have warmth nnd shelter before he can iceover. This could always be secured to the soldiers of the revolu tion. In thoo days, the latch string of no door was pulled in. When wounded, he was sure to find shel ter and sery many of those comforts which nre so c-scntinl to the sick, but svhich ihe soldiers in nn In dian war cannot procure. Instead of shelter nnd warmth, he is exposed to the thousand ills incident to Indian warfaic. Yet no relief was extended to those who bad thus sintered! After the war closed under Wayne, I re tired ; and when 1 saw a man poorer than all others, wandering about lite land, deeripid and decayed by intemperance belonged to Wayne's army. His condition was a it was luinceosarv lo cnuuire suielhcr lie nan ever sin lcicnt assurance that he lcsome denes. M siilijcel, nre hy no means correct; hut it is truo that it is my opinion that no pledge should be made by an individual sshen in nomination for nny ollice ui tho gilt of tin- People. And why'! Once adopt it, and the battle will no longer be !o the strum lo the virtuous or the sincere lover of the country; but to him who is prepared lo till the greatest uiiiiiIk r of lies, and to proller the largest number of pledges which he never intends lo carry out. I suppose thai the best guaran tee which an American citizen could have of the eor r eluess of ihe conduct of nn individual in the future, would he his conduct in the past, when he had no temptation before him, to practice deceit. Now, f How citizens, 1 have not nltoge ther grown grey under tho helmet eif my country, although 1 have worn it for some time. A largo portion of my life has been passed in the civil departments of gov ernment. Examine my conduct there, and the most tenacious democrat I uso the svord ni its proper sense; I mean not to confino it to parlies, for there are good on both may, doubtless discover faults, but he will find no single act calcillatJd to derogate fioin the lights of the people1. However, to prove the res'crse of this, I base been called a I'cdiTalist ! f I lerc was a cry of " the charge is a lie a ba.c lie. You aro no federalist." We ll, what is a federalist 7 I recollect what tho term for merly signified, nnd there nrc many others present who lceollect its former signification also. They know that llio federal party wero accused of a de sign to strengthen the nanus of the general govcni- lucnt al t lie exiicnso of the separate States. That accusation svould nor cannot apply tome. , I was iiioiigui up alter ine tincicsi manner oi Virginia nn-ti-fcderalism, St. Paul himself svas not a greater de votee 1 1 the doctrines of the l'haiisees, than svas I, by inclination ami a father's precepts and example, to nil-ti-fedcralisni. I wns taught to hi lieve that, sooner or later, that fatal catastrophe to human liberty would hike place that the general government would swal low up u!l the Stale governments, and that one de partment of llio government svould swallow up all llio other denarlmeiils. I do not know whether mv friend Mr Van J'urcn (mid ho is, and I hope ev ver will be, my iiersounl friend) has a throat thai cm swallow everything: but I do know, that if his measures nro carried out, he svill lay a foundation for othe rs to do so if he docs not. What rellceling man, fellow citizens, cannot see this ( Tho Representatives of tho pcopio svirooneo the source of power. Is it so now .' Nay. It is to the Ivsceuiive mansion now that every eye is turned that every wi-h is directed.

Hut lo return. I havo but to remaik that mv nil I i federalism has been tempered by my long service in Ihe employ of country and my frequent oaths to support tho general government; but I am as ready lo resist ihe encroaehiiienls on Stuto rights, ns I nm to support tho legitimate authority of llio Kxccuiivo, or general government. Now, fellow citizens, I havo very littlo more to say, except hi e sert you lo go on, peacefully if you can -and you eau- lo elleet that reform upon which your hearts me fixed.

My Dear Sir : When I received your letter of the 1 1 tli of April, I svas very unwell svitli a violent cold in mo neau, svincti terminated in intermittent ncuralma. or sun liaill. ns it is cominonlv called, which was in. creased so much by svritiug, that I svas obliged for some time, to do serv littlu in that svnv. When 1 re- coscred, my unanswered letters had increased to so leariul ii mass that l havo not yet ticcii atile to get through it, even svitli the assistance of my conscience keeping committee. And although 1 liuvu adopted the method of getting rid of a largo portion of liieni by committing them to the llames instead of thu com mittee, such are the constant interruptions to which I am subjected by a constant btrcam of visitors, that I nm able to make very littlo progress in lessening my file. You have in die nboTo my apology for treating you svitli apparent neglect svhich it svas impossible that I .should do, us well from your high standing in society, as from the regard I leel for you in conse quence of tho long and intimate frieiulship and con nexion between our families. Hut for these reasons, cauuor uiuiices me io say, mill i couiu never nave brought myself to answer the political part of yoar letter at all. 1 am convinced that upon rcllectio.i you svill yourself think it svas totally unneecssri-y, for I cannot suppose that my personal friends nn . connex ions in my native Stnte could think that i svas less of a gentleman or an honest man than thcjc ardent pol iticians farther South, Stanly, Alford, I.egari', Daw son, KinL', etc. &c. &.c. They taku it for granted that I could not suffer my Vicennes Fccch and others to be ijuotcd by my fiicndslo shuts my opinions on the subject of abolitionism if I did not hold those opinions nt tins tunc, t have had indeed, n gic-at number ot applications lrom individuals nuic-tenths, at least, my opponents,) requiring lue to reiterate svbat 1 have said or svrittc.ii upon tho tuhject of the United States Hank, Abl'litionisin, etc. I have declined to answer ihein of lute at all: .unoni'St other reasons, because it svas I phy.-icallv impossible that 1 should do it, mid as they m, n-eiuu niy e;riiiiuu in iiiiiiiusurijii, paruciliaii nei drcssi.'d to tlio writers, they svould not be biiliffied svith my writing one letter nnd sending a printed copv to each. I svas determined hosveser, to avail mvself 'tf thv firstfavorable opportunity, and referring to the ' i.t..iis- "".''"..".'",,i-us mentioned, to endorse them all.

Mr nvne, and Generil Hamilton and manv others, nil out myself of the then Jackson party. 'Our friendly intercourse was never afterwards interrupted, In re ply to vour ciquiry, as lo niy connection svilh the old Ki lcral pvty.

I lus promse the President repeated to Carter IS. Harrison, th?n in Congress, with some very kind remarks upon my eonduel in the Army. When Gen. Washing.on left the Presidency, I have reason to be lieve, thai he obtained a promise from Mr Adams to fulfil hishtcntions. When the oflico of tho .Secreta ry of the North Western Territory became vacant, Mr Allans appointed me, although I svas opposed by Col. Pick-ring, the .Secretary of .State. In 17111), 'I svas elerted by the H'publican party of the Territo rial I.cgMaurc to bo tluir candidate for the appoint ment of Iclegale to Congress, lielvvecii Mr Arthur St. flair Jr., (Ihe son of (iov. St. Clair,) the. federal candidate, nnd myself, llio votes svern divided pre cisely ns the two parties stood in the Legislature, with the cxcction of one Republican who svas induced by lus regard for tho (inventor to s'ole for his son. The vote was 11 to 10, not one of the nine federalists vot- ingloriut. llefore I lell Cincinnati the Ki publican lueinbcrsmado me promise not to sufler mv known opposition to the measures of llio Administration to interfere vith tho attainment of tho great eibicct for which 1 sas sent. Upon my arrival in Philadelphia, I was received by Mr Adams in llio most Haltering manner. At his dinner narties where I wns often n truest, ho fccnu'd lo lake gieat pleasure in speaking of mv lathers services in tho Revolutionary Congress rclatinrr iiAiu-nnrf dotes lo diow his devotion to tin cause, and the elleet which his pleasantries produced in elieerin; them in tlio gloom, which tho occasionally unprouiising state of their nllairs often produced. I had no conversation with Mr Adams on notifies, far ther than to sxpbiin to 1 iti ii mv views in relation to the elianTe.in the system of selling tho Public Lands, which I was glad to find ho approved. As soon as the law was passed for tho division of the North Wes tern Territory I wns informed that it svas the inten tion nf Mr Adams lo nominate mo to tho Govern ment of Indiana. I hcsilatcd for a moment to de clare that I would not accent it, although very much pressed to do so by several leading Federal members of Congress. I svas not long in discovering llio nio livcsi of these gentlemen. There had been some meetings of the people of tho Territory in svhich res olutions had been adopted rccoininen'ding me In the I'lcsidoiit for tin Government of iho Territory, (North Those resolutions, svilh correspondent addresses, had been forsvarded to the I'residi nt nnd Senate. Now it so happened that two distinguished Senators hnd fixed their eyes upon llio same ollice. One of lliem, svho was most urgent for mo lo go to Indiana had large possesions ill the North Western Territory. which was probably ono reason for his wishing to go there. Hut the liinin object was lo secure- tlio Territo ry lo tho l'ederat party, when it should become a State, which it was known would soon bo thn case. To carry out this plan, it was necessary to get ine out of the way. Tho appointment was pressed upon me notwithstanding ins refusal to take it. At length my relations and fueivls, tho Messrs. Nicholas, Wilson Clary of tho Senate, and John of the House, prevail ed oil 1110 to accent It. They lioinlcd out thoniknn. luge to mvself, and iissure-d mu that thcro was no doubt of Mr Jcilcrson's i lection in ib rnsninir Kn. veinber, nnd that I would bo continued Governor of Indiana, nnd somo republican succeed Gov, St. Clair in ihoiNorth vsesliTn Timlory.

These interests, although locally existing m some parts of the country more than others aro yet all national interests. The great ngiiculturnl States have also high interests to be protected: nnd especially tho ncsv'nnd fist growing Stntcs of the West, of which Indiana seems to bo n sort of local center, have objects of high importance to themselves, loudly calling for the cato of Congress, nnd in mv judgment clearly syithin its constitutional power, and the circle of its duties, l'or mvself, I wih, svitli equal earnestness, for the success of all these obiccts. And we have moreover, an jne'emnity of intcrosts in the great quewtiou ot a imilomi currency j in tho great question of a competent revenue, economically ad ministered: nnd in tho great emcstion of maintaining the general character, honor, nnd good faith of the country.

Wc have delayed our paper some hours, in the vain hope of being enabled to give our readers the proceedings in full; but this we find utterly impossible to do. Wo had cal culated for a convention, merely not one of those popular demonstrations which wc hear of nt tho west; but such sve havo had an assemblage of the pcoplo themselves; and in attempting to describe it, wo find the subject growing so fast upon our hands as to render any thing like a faithful detail of its proceedings impossible this week. Wc therefore after some three or four columns arc in type, find ourselves compelled to defer the whole for our next sheet, and con tent ourselves for tho present with the bare announcement, that the assemblage was un doubtedly tho largest of tho kind ever con vened in Now England. Wo have no melius of knowing the exact number, but it is variously estimated, hy good judges, nt from fifteen to twenty thousand persons, Hon. Solomon Footc presided, assisted by fourteen Vice Presidents, and Geo. U. Man ser acted as Secretary. The old ticket for State oflkers svas unanimously renominated and a vote taken to elect them, by at least six thousand majority. Tho Convention was ably addressed by Messrs. Wilson, of New Hampshire, Culver of New York, Uniam of Montpclicr, Adams of Burlington, and Uitinos of Richmond a sketch of whose re marks will accompany our account of the proceedings. Under this arrangement those who havo ordered extra papers will not bo served till next week, and others desiring to send papers abroad, will please to givo us early notice. Tho Sentinel thinks thcro svas something more than threo thousand persons present on Thursday. Quito hheral considering that Mr. Van Ness could got only about two hundred to listen to him tho other day at Clarendon! Hut why docs Winslow tell so foolish a falsehood a falsehood which at least fifteen thousand persons can nail to tho counter, from their own personal knowledge! Winslow says that a person svho enmo to town tho other day with tho intention of sub scribing for tho Freo Press, finally conclu ded to try the Sentinel ! In offset to this, sve will inform him, that fivo persons from ono town, who have, till recently, taken tho Sentinel, camo in on Thursday, subscribed for tho Freo Press, paid tho cash in advunco, nnd informed tis that ten or a dozen of their neighbors wcro going to do tho same. Wo havo added ton quires to our 'heap," with in three months. Do you hear 1hot boy ! V II I D A Y M O It NIN G, J U N F. 2G, 19 10. Nearly ono hundred rovolutionary aoldiors I dined at tho log cabin on Thursday. 1 CEtxurtATioN at FoitT Mr.ios. Tlio Annl- crsary of tho liattlo of Fort Moiija waa colo- hratcd on tho tspot, on the 11th hist. It is slated that not less than 20,000 persons passed there on tho preceding evening, nnd encamped on the ground. On tho morning tho assemblage was organized as a convention by the choice of Hon. Thomas Ewing as President. After the orga nization, tho proceedings were opened by prayer hy the llcv. Joseph Uadgcr, who is 00 years of ago, and near CO years ago was Chaplain in Gen. Wayne's army. After the prayer, Gen. Win. II. Harrison advanced, and addressed tlio meeting in an interesting speech of an hour and a half in length. Ho was followed by Mr. Ewing, Mr. hclienck nnd many others. It is said that 110,000 persons were present, of whom 5,000 wcro from Michigan. The following, from tho Kennebec Journal, will apply with equal force to this Ecction, nnd to the country generally. Look out rat tug Census Takcus. -There probably never was nn administration of any He publican country einco tho beginning of the svorld, in svhich the patronage of the govern mcnt was so fully directed and so systematically Used to corrupt or deccivo tho pcoplo into the support of tho incumbents of iwwcr. Tho more wo reflect upon it, tho more monstrous: and alarming docs this abuso appear. Every officer of tho national government, cvory-contractor for supplies to the army, tlio navy, the post office, the Indian department, tho custom-hou-c, and so on through an almost endless list of prsons, directly or indirectly concerned in profitable connection with the government, is sclcdcd not for his capacity to servo the public, but for his abilities in securing the ascendancy of lis party his fidelity to the set of men from wiom he receives his oflico or contract. Ever; tosvn, and almost every village in the U. S. las one or more of these paid dependants of the jocrn mcnt, and ho is fully apprised that the Unuro of his office d-jpends upon his party activty, and that the more unscrupulous ho is in the means of electioneering, the greater U his pmnisc of reward. In this and many other States all the offices and patronage of the State government arc added to the mighty host of dcpcidants of of the federal government And now in addi tion to the latter, a ncsv band of auxilhries has been organized. The Marshal of the State, an individual who received his office as I resvard for his services in suppressing a congressional investigation into abuses in 18!i7, while a mem ber of Congress, and an old federalist is now charged svitli the selection of individuali to take tho census of the inhabitants. These lave al ready received their instructions. Tluy have many eiucstions to ask as to statistics and popu lation, which should be correctly answered ; but besides tho duties contemplated by lasv, they are charged svith others. We have heard of some instances in which thoy have received a full sup ply of Prospectuses of the Extra Globe, the Spirit of '10 thieves, and the federal Ago'ti Appeal to the Democracy. Wc make no doubt that every census taker in the S'.atc is supplied in like manner. As they arc to go into every house, they will, if possible, inlucc the head of every family to subscribe, and where they cannot get any money they will probably send ono of these papers free of cost. At the same time thoy svill ascertain the pol'tics of every man and make return to tho an Burr mittccs, giving them the necessary hints as to l.nt ort of operations will tic rcquircu to sc ducc the weak, to confirm the wavering, or to reclaim those who have bccounic wearied of misrule. These emissaries of the administra tion must be loejked after. Thoy are paid from the Treasury for scattering falsehood ; and un less the disinterested people svho understand their operations, take some pains to refute their falsehood-?, thev svill doubtless have the cflect to deceive some, perhaps mans. With such vast machinery in operation, directed by talented men svho have no serupulc as to tho means, and svho arc already grown desparate hy tiicir fears, nothing can resist them hut united and active exertions of the uncontaminatcd and patriotic pceiplc themselves. A Military Court Martial has been recently held at Baltimore, to try Major Landrum and Capt. Dususnuno, for tho crimo of being Whigs I Gen. Wool presided.

This is tho "persecution" complained of this tho "great wrong dono to tho democratic party" thoso tho "just claims" which tho "democratic convention of tho city of Balti more," seek to enforco ; and to such vilo purposes does tho President prostituto his high functions. But thus it is wo occasion ally get a glimpso at tho movements behind tho scene.

Law Casu al Philadelphia. Tho 1'cnnsylvanian contains a report of a case, or rather a number of cases, (which for tho economy of time, as they all rested on simi largrounds, wcro heard at onco) tried in the District Court of tho City and County of Philadelphia, in which John Eliot Thayer svas plaintiff and tho Hank of the United dofiMidant. Tho action was brought on sev eral notes of tho Hank, which had been regularly protested. They were presented on several different days from Jan. G, to April 25, 1S40, and amounted to 129,-000. Mr, Freeman opened tho argument for the plain tin's by sttitint; tho case of the action, nnd r-nllintr tho attention of the court lo the nlllduvit of defence, by which it appears that tho plaintiffs' claim te the amount on the face of tho notes sued upon is admitted nnd that the only qncstions in dispute nro 1st. Wheth er the plain tiffs aro entitled to the penal interest nf 'i per cent, under article Gth and section 4thof the Char ter oftho Hank defendant, for refusiiiL' to nav its notes on demand: 'M. Whether they nro entitled to the fees nnd charges of notarial protest ! 2d. Whether tlicy aro bound to linng the notes sued on into Uourt, f Noplace them in the custody of its officers or other ,-fBicr, before they can claim a judgment against tho defendant on the motion. Mr Cndwalludcr and Mr. '.Mcrditth ap peared for the Hank, and argued against tho recovery of the 12 per cent, penal interest and the fees. In reply to these arguments, Mr. Dexter, in behalf of the platiitids resident in Massachusetts, summed up tho nrumncuts advanced in an cloiment. clear and forcible manner, and was lis tened to with marked attention. He contended thai as the tilaintill's had pursued the act of Assembly crc- atinu the Court, they svero entitled tonjudifumcnt at once-, and that nlllioiiL'li the Court coulil not recant any paper as thebasis of their udiimciit other than inaiiie.scriueu in mo nci iiscn, yet, aner snusiymr tlicmsclses t hat a imlL'tncnt is elite, thev may consider a state filed in order to ascertain the amount nf dair !Mcs to he assessed. The charter of the Hank defen dant bcinsn nublie lasv, is iudieiallv before the Point, and thev nre bound lo notice all its harts nnd In inlli-t its penalties. 'Ihe plainlilH aro enlilled hy law lo to receive liper cent, interest, and the Court arc houi it to iis-ess it uinoiu! the danint'es', because in constri- iug the net they must endeavor to reneli and prevent thomiscliiel svhicli Hie penalty was iie.-iirticil to reme dy. The ritrht to receive this additional interest, after a demand and refusal, is a part of the oriirinal con tract between the bank and the holder of its notcf, and. beins once vested, cannot bo taken away by an? subsequent act of the Legislature. All that can be meant bv the Resumption Dill is to suspend the liabil ity of the banks to a forfeiture of their charier for a certain time nnd upon certain conditions, because the assembly could not impair the obligation of the con - tract hetweon the names nnd their creditors, ny talk ing oir tho pecuniary penalty duo to the ono for a breach of faith by the other. Notarial fees aro not claimed hero as part of the e-O.sts bill n ilntnrii'rji.rrsiiltiliu' from tlm .'..fciilt .f il,o dete-ndant, and tliould therefore be allowed. Mr. Williams, for the defendant, and Mr. Troubat, for the plaititiU's, declined spcndiui;, ns the discussion had already consumed two days, and the cai-cs were here closed. The decision of the Court may be cx pectcel early next week. VOTES FOR PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESI DENT.
