We freqticntly alluded, during the last nix months to the person whose liaino stands at the head of this article, and to his libellous attacks upon tho great Whig party of tho country. We have now to speak of him as a conspirator against all tho long-cherished and humanizing institu lions of civilized society against the system of morality which prevails among Christian nations and what is far more to be deplored, against our holy religion itself. Our authority for audi grave charges against this individual rests upon an article written by him for the last number of the Huston Quar terly Review, of which periodical lie is the edi tor. The tenor of the article in question may be inferred from the following extracts : "Wo say frankly, that, if there must always bo a laboring population, distinct fiom proprietors and em ployers, we regard the slave system as decidedly pre ferable! to the system of wages." ! ! ! "Wages is a "cunning device of tho devil, for tho benefit of tender conscience, who would return all tho advantages of the slave system without the ex pense, trouble, and odium of being slave-holders." 'Wo reallv believe our NORTHERN system of In- bor more oppressive, and more mischievous to momls. than the Suiithcin.

But who, our readers will naturally inquire, who is tills Orcetcs A. Brownson, who thus at tempts to overthrow tho present structure- of civil society) ami to fill tho place which it now liolda in the allectmns of mankind with hia own "damnable invcntioim" 1 Wo will tell tlioni who he is. Born and edacatcd among the Green Mountains of Vermont, ho early betrayed symp toms of infidelity. Front Deism to Atheism, the transition was easy and natural, and after trav elling through the country as the companion of the infamous Fanny Wright, wo next find him established as the editor of an atheistical journal in the city of Utica. Becoming convinced how ever from the prospects of starvation that were staring him in the face, that tho world was not yet ripe for his infernal doctrinoF, he apparently became convinced of the error of his ways, and renouncing Atheism ollorod himself as a candi date for the pastorship of a Unitarian church, in Canton, Mass. Boing a man of superior abil ities, and sincere in his professions of Christian ity, ho was duly ordained, and remained in Can ton several years in the discharge of his duties. About this time, Ralph Waldo Emerson, to whom we referred u few dajy since as the lea der of the transcendental school of philosophy in this country, refused to administer the sacra ment to tho members of the Church of which he was the pastor, on tho ground that the ceremony of tho Communion was unnecessary and ab surd. Tor this violent outrage on the feelings of a christian comnuuiity,Kmerbon was of course dismissed from his paroichial charge, hut not without the sympathy of Bruwnsun and others of a kindred nature ; who declared that Emer son was only " in advance of the age" and that in twenty years, christians generally would hold tho same sentiments"! In consequence of tho promulgation of such opinions in society and from the pulpit, Brownson was soon obliged to to leave his parish, and we next iiud him the IccturcrMu a free church in tho city of Boston and the editor of tho Boston (iuarterly Review. In his vocation, astonishing as it may seem to the unsophisticated in this quarter, his sermons were strong loco foco harangues, and denuncia tions of the existing order of society ; very sitn- ar in fact, to tho specimens of his doctrines hich we havo given in the extracts above quo ted. This new style of sermonising, however, put very little money in his purse, and he was again almost upon the brink of starvation, when the steward of the Marine Hospital at Chelsea, died very opportunely for Mr. Brownson, who was forthwith indiictcdjnto an office worth 1700 per annum. Thus much for tho man, and now for hio doc tnnes. It will bo seen by the extracts we have given that this modern philosophical Democrat con tends for, I. The destruction of the system of free labor and wages ; II. The overthrow of the Church in all it forms and sects; III. Tho abolition of tho laws relating to the descent of property. That he and his deluded followers will use their utmost endeavors to propagate their per nicious heresies, and that they will ho aided in their nefarious work by tho whole power of tho Government, no ono can doubt. And with this conviction, we call upon those members of tho ran Buren party who nny be within the roach of our voice, and who havo yet, nothwithstand- ing their adhesion to tho Destructives, the best interests of their country at heart, to say wheth er they can longer support a party whose lead ing men openly profess such sentiments as those we have quoted from the Boston Quarterly Review. The Van Buren party in this city and vicinity numbers, among its chief supporters, many gen- tlcnien of tho old Federal party men who were, in early life, indoctrinated with the po litical sentiments of Hamilton, Jay, Ames, and Marshall ; and who arc justly respected and es teemed for their benefactions to literary institu tions, for their liberal support of the respective huri'hcs to which they belong, and for all the private virtues which adorn and dignify the hu man character. Can men like theco longer countenance an Administration which aims at overthrowing the whole of the present structure of society, at abolishing the visible ordinances of religion, and reducing all the beautiful fabric which the collected wisdom of five thousand years has been employed in rearing, into a wild and unruly chao-i! Can men who fought strenuously against the introduction of l-rcnch infidelity, and French Jacobinism into this country, consent to give currency to a worse than French infidelity, and to encourage a worse than French Jacobinism ! Will men who banished Voltaire and Diderot from their libraries, now permit their sons and daughters to he contaminated by the perusal of such infamous articles as those contained in tho Boston Quarterly Review ! It cannot ho. And therefore do wo rejoice that this miscreant has shown the cloven foot thus early. Therefore do we rejoice that ho has alroadv broken ground in favor of anarchy, no laws, no religion, no strands, civil or moral. For so loiiir as the Buren leaders preserved the semblance of dc cious conspiracy to deceive and delude, their own fob-1 terforo or inlbienco bis wishes , and 1 run told I by my lowers i wusay theii followers, for wo cannot believe friend, Governor Uncoln. hat ho never made any 1 nit hit U AM VI nil rrn iiiiimfiii tlint thcrn in n I'rnoroua Wlih' in tho Union who would doubt tho until im; perseverance of his political friends, who havo for three years, under circumstances tho most odverac, maintained tho con llict with their oppressors, and in each year have been victorious.

OPINIONS OF SENATOR TAPPAN If there bo any one individual in public life who more distinctly than another personifies the politics of the party now in power, and which is seeking to perpetuate its power to carry into effect the projects that "lie behind" those which it has already consummated, it is perhaps Mr. Senator Taitan, of Ohio.

S. Mails for the South. Providentially no hves were lust. 1 heso boats both belong to the Wi ininglon and Itoanoko Rail Road Company, rind at tho lime nf thn collision, which took plnce nt "sea about CO miles South of Wilmington, tbo North Carolina was running townids Charleston with thn Northern pas-engers and mails, while the Governor Dudley was on her way towards v iimmgion.

The Whig State Committee of New York have published an address to the people of the United States, in which they say there is no doubt in their minds, that Gen. Harrison will havo a large majority in that State. They know of a vast number of changes in their favor, and scarcely any against them. They say they have been the State Committee three years, and know pretty well what is going on. The Com mittee's Circular will be found in another col umn. Tho nnssengers of tho N.

OGLE'S SPEECH. Great efforts have been made by the loco focos to invalidate the statements contained in this valuable document, but without effect. It is hard getting over the testimony of official documents ; and it is upon these alone, Mr. Ogle relics. The vouchers for every thing are given, and no member of the house dared to dis pute any of his state ments when ho made the speech. Mr. Lincoln of Massachusetts, made some remarks, and expressed his opinion that so much time ought not to he taken up with expen ditures at the President's house, when there were so many other charges against the admin istration of a far more heinous character to bo made. The Globe gave a report of Mr. Lincoln's speech, which all the presses of the party are now ceipying and call it a refutation of Mr. Ogle's speech. But this is a false report of Lincoln s speech, and Mr. Lincoln has so declared. Noi thcr Mr. Lincoln nor any other member of the house ever impeached tho correctness of the .statements of Mr. Oirle. Nor is it true that anv committee of Congress at any time, ever select ed furniture for the President's house. They report the money that is wanted, and put it in the appropriation bill, and that is all they have to do with it. The President expends the money in his own way, and the people can judge for themselves as to tho fitness of these expend! lures. But, lest any person should be led to doubt the authenticity of the document iptoted, pains has been taken to have them verified by the loco foco members of the committee to which Air. Ogle belonged, as also by a number of tho lead ing whig members of the house. The publica tion of those documents has also called out Mr, Lincoln in explanation ; and from his letter it will be seen that he fully sustains every material fact stated by Mr. Ogle, and says that the disa greement between him and Mr. O. arose on a collateral point in the debate, which of course is not incorporated into the published speech So that Mr. Ogle's speech as published, is fully corroborated and sustained by Mr. Lincoln him self. Another fact comes out in this corrcspon donee which should not be overlooked. It seems that tircnty-seien thousand dollars of the sum in question was expended by Mr. Van Buren between the -ltli of March and (5th of Decern ber 1S37, without any appropriation for the object and when no committee existed. When Con gross met in December, an appropriation was called for and obtained to corerthis expenditure, And yet tho locofocos insist that the President has no agency in the matter whatever ! SLAVERY. Gen. Harrisson, when in Congrcsp, voted for the admission of Missouri in to the Union with slaves. A year or two afterwards, being a mem ber of the Senate of Ohio, he voted that no moro States should be admitted with slaves. Tha Van Buren men of the South oppose him for this latter vote, and those of the North urge that it was inconsistent with the first. But the rea son he gave was a very good one. He was op. posed to slavery, and would abolish it wher. over the power of the United States could b clearly and constitutionally exercised. He thus explained the matter himself in 1Q'1 : I have been the means of liberating many slav. hul never placid one in bondacc. I deny that my volts in v.oiigressm rciauon 10 .Missouri aim Arkansas, ar in tho least incompatible with these principles. Con gress had no moro legal or constitutional right to iMii.iiicii;nu .ni; ncgiues u. uiosc sections oi Louisiana without tho consent of their owners, than they hiva to free those of Kentucky. Thosepcople were secured in their property by a solemn covenant with Franco when tho country was purchased from that power. To prohibit the emigration of citizens of the Southern btaies lo the part ol the country, tho situation and cli mate of which was peculiarly suited to them, would have been highly unjust, ns it had been purchased out ui ii tiuiiiiiiniii i.ii.ii. i -arucunariw too. when it n recollected that all the immense territory to the north- wesiuiinu umu, nan oeen ceded tiy Virginia, and with an unexampled libeinlitv. she bml ti,.ra..tr nmnn. sed, by excluding slavery from it, to secure it for thn cimgrution of those States which hnd no slaves. Wns ii proper, men, wncn tier reserved territory was in a great measure filled up, to exclude her citizens from every part of the territory purchased out of the com mon fund 1 I uas the first person to introduce into congress ine propontiun Uialalt Vie country abore tht Missouri (which having no inhabitants was free from the objection made to Misuri and Arkansas) should never hate elarcry admitted into it. I repeat what I have before said, tint ns our uui n wnsonlv effected by mutual concession, so only can it be preserved. Another point on which Gen Harrison iB bois terously opposed by tho Van Buren men of tho South, and it is much dwelt upon by Mr. Cal- homi's clique, is that in his Vincennes 6pecch he proposed to appropoiate the surplus revo- nues of the country to the abolition of rfivcry m the Mates, with their consent. In that speech Gen.
