AMrnie cs M Ft. "JARVIS rs. TUB PATRIOT. Calumny rrulcJ, For electioneering pur pore, the ir. -vjicraot tho Sentinel have put forth a now edition of tlio calumny firet origina ted hy Horace MHe, of tlio Montpollcr Patriot, in which Mr. Jarvis of Wcathorofiolil, n member of tlio Into convention for c.onsidorino; the pro- K.;jil ninuiidincnlH to tho coiiNtitiltion, wan ropicsontod as uayinif in tlio course of hia ro- tnarka beforo that body, that " the rich man's mo ney wan a fair iff'sd to the iwr mini's blood." This malicious iiurvcrnion of Mr. Jarvia' ecnti- incntM wiih such :i manifest otttrno;e uiMin truth, and seemed ho evidently to bo put forth in tho spirit of malignant, detraction that wo supiwsod its rufutatioit unnecessary. Tlio fact of its ap pearing in the Patriot, would bo regarded, wo imagined, ns conclusive evidence of its falsehood. No other Jackron paper in tho state was perceiv ed to givo any credit to the slander, and wo thought it would soon pass into oblivion with Sluolo'n other silly nttetiipts at coming original libels. Hut his worthy ro-workor in that business, tho ex-IJ.colleiit editor of tho Sentinel has now given the infamous (ale a place in the appropri ate columns of his paper, in tho hope that tho poison may find its way into the minds of Iho cilizens of this county just at the eve of election, when it cannot bo sca.-onably contradicted. That portion of Mr. Jarvis' speech in which the olFetirfive remark is pretended lobe found wo will hereafter lay before our readers. It carries with it a full confutation of the calumny. In the mean time we invite tho attention of tho public to the subjoined testimony which cllbctually nails it to Iho counter. These gentlemen fully vindi cate Mr. Jarvis. They were eye and ear wit- nerses of the transaction and aro well known to tho citizens of this county. Tho testimony of the editor of tho Windsor Republican who was also present is equally conclusive. Thn certifies, that I was present nt the fitntc house in Molitpelier, nt Ihe limu the coiivi nlion nut at that place, in Juno last, foi tlm purpose oftakintr into eon sidrialion cei iam propn.-.ul amendments to thu Con stitution of this Slate tint 1 heard Mr. Jarvis' speech on that subject, mid in u ply to some arguments of tho member from Mount Holly, Mr. Jarvu said, "heen " tircly agreed with that peiillcman, that theinestima "ble rudil orsiilline ought to bu equally enjoyed by " thu po n as well ns tho iich,--in a tune of war, tho "poor eoiitiibute, their toils and their blood, in di fence "of their country, which certainly mint bo considered "an ample equivalent to the ioonii'd contribution", " furnished by thn wealthy for its support and defence. " Hut nltlintii'h ho tltonnht they ouylit toposses equal ' rights with tho wealthy, yet they ought not to possess " greater rights and immunities." I am well satisfii d that I cannot bu mistaken a-i to tho purport of the re marks made by Mr. Jarvis, as I eonsideicd Iho senti ment truly bin ral and republican, nnd m accordance with my own long aeltlid opinions on that subject.

We hereby certify that wo wero membfr.i of iho ( !oiiV(.ntion assembled at Monlpdi'T in June last, and heard llin speech of .Mr. Jarvis above alluded to. nnd consider the tibore as a true ami correct statement of Iho sentiments ndvancid by Mr. J.irvn on that occa sion.

Tlio last Montpelier Patriot conlains. amon numer ous olhi r lalsdi'iodi, one so baiefaccd in scarcely lo requite a syllable by way of refutation, thu nrscilioii lint Mr. Jin vis, of Wculherslield, " on the floor of tho house, in di.bate, lupoii the propo-ud amendments of the couMitutioii tliat the iidi man' minty irai a fair nfllcl for the iuar vntn's bloml." Tli" above quoruioii wo know lo bo i minimis, and loalieiou'lv no, in liieseiHo in wlui Ii il is srivon in Iho Patriot. Wo weie. present, and hcaid distinctly iho remarl'.s of Mr. Jarvis, from which thh "sentiment," as the Patriot ihtor is pleased to call it, was man iiactarrj. Mr. Jarvis, wo well recollect, uttereil lio such sentiment. Ilo had just exhibited a state ment in figures, showing the great inequality of rep resentation in our leirislature, lakui" either Homilnlion or properly ns tho ba'is. In making his deductions from his statement ho contended, that population should be made the baiis of repre-ent'itioii, without any reOmnco to properly that in tho important bu.Vi nesa nf legislation, tho poor man's vote diould have equal weight with the rich niau'sj for thn reason that, under ihu operation of our laws, it is gencially tlio iioor man who fought tho battle?, and difciulcd tho liberties of our country, while Iho rich man's money maintained him in thu field. In Ibis view of the sub ject, Mr. J. remarked, Ihe rich man's money was put against iho poor man's blood ; and it was right, there fore, thai the. poor man's voto should bo equal to iho rich man's. Wo venture to say thern is not an honttl poor linn liviiif, who has the happiness of being ;ier sonalhj acquainted with Mr. Jarvis, who would put his hand upon lii.slie nt nnd say, thnl he believes him callable of utletiiii; th" birbarous sentiment attributed lo him by the editor of the Patriot.- Windsor Ucpah titan.

The f i r.-t asierlion i-i, that I openiv dedartd in ihu houso in debate, "tint tho rich man's money was a fiiroll'sct for the poor man's blood." In nply to soiiiii remarks of a member nbout iho equal rrprejf il lation of the poor, I said, "that I eiiiirdy agreed with that gentleman, that the inestimable null t nf Milli.ige ought Inbu as equally eiioyed by ihu poor as ihe rich. In a limn ol wai the poor run tribute their mil and l In ir blood in their connlryaciuse, which certainly must bo iqnivab ut to the monicil contributions furnished by thu wealthy, for its support anddefoueo." It must bo allowed by every fiieud of candour, that Iho above arliclo in tho Piunot i a most barefaced and impudent perversion of trulh. How that nn editor wdio sets iho least valuo on his reputation for vcrncity, should ven ture to pervert tlio smsoof thn Kpeech which was de livered ui tho prescuon of nearly HOO people including the members of tlio convention and visiters, is lo mo porfecllv inexplicable.

It is not our intention lo en ter into a detailed report of tho memorable voyage, but, but merely to mention tho melancholy fato of ono 01 uiu uiscovercrs. It appears that on their return to York Naciory tho principal depot of tho Hudson's Hay Company they both set out for F.ngland, eager togrnsp tho rich revvard which tlio Hritish Government never fails to lavish upon all her citizens who contribute anything toward extending her wide-spread domains or ti) perpetuating her well earned fame. On tho arrival of tho two young men at Lake Winne-pcck.they disagreed about thu route which should bo pursued and thcro separated. Mr. Simpson, accompanied by Mr. Hire!, Mr. Legroa, and twenty or thirty of the colonists, struck across for St. Peters, intending to push on to New York, tin the Lakes, and thence sail to Liver pool. Mr. Dacy, his comticcr, willi another party, set out for tho Canadas. About tho 20th of Juno Mr. .Simpson and his party had reached Turtle river, where they encamped for tho night. Ho had from Ihe begining of the journey, cx Inbite'il occasional symptoms of menial hallucination, caused, as tho parly supposi-d, by the dread of being outstripped by his competitor in their long raco for London.

THE PROTECTING POLICY. lie must indeed bo but carclcsa observer of the (signs of the times, who has not perceived a growing and settled hostility, on the part of the administration, to tho protective system. This hostility first manifested in hpyocritical profes sioiis of friendship for a "judicious" tariff. They were in favor of a tariff; but it must bo "equal" that is, a mere revenue, tariff, which, from the very nature of thing!!, can aflbrd no adcepiatc protection. The sub-treasury was next proposed as a substitute ; and with this tub to amuse the whale, the whole administration battery is open ed upon "that most unequal and iniquitous sys tem, a high tariff." Mr. Van Iluren congratu latcs his partisans that " the young .Sampson of Democracy has scattered tho high protective tariff system to the four iriiuh if heaven" Mr. Calhoun "rejoices that the system of prnlecticc tariffs, bo pre-eminent in mischief is about to expire, and gasping its last breath" the Globe proclaims a "settled opposition to the tari(P' the Burlington Sentinel lauds the sub-trcasury, "be cause it will lay tho axe at the root of that most uncepial and iniquilious system of a high tariff" and Mr Van Ness in his 4th of July speech proclaimed unequivocal opposition to all legisla tive protection to American industry. The sub trcassury, he contended, by destroying com mcrcc, and reducing prices, would alford inci dental protection enough to manufactures ! This language you now find in the mouth of ev ery office-holder in tho country, ami those of the administration leaders who cannot approve, arc yet too far committed to raise even a pro test against this palpable attempt to sacrifice the interests of tho north. To show the reader tliat we do not speak without the boool;, we give our authorities, which, it seems to us, must be conclusive, to every candid mind. The follow- ing is from the Globe of the 7th Feb. last, The South opposed Nullification, and in this tho ij oho sunnorled the tsotith.

This is unequivocal nnd coming as does from the official organ, might be taken as conclusive as to the designs of tho adiiiiiiinistraton. But vvc have the declarations of the President him self. In reply to an invitation to attend a barba cue in Kentucky, on the 11th inst. ho informs the committee that ho had just signed the sub treasury bill, and after gloryifying that measure in a suitable strain, he alludes to the tariff in the following brief but significant paragrapl "The Sampson of Democracy hurst tho cords which woto already pound around its limns, and m l uc elec tion of Mr. Jefferson vindicated its principles, its firm ncss and its power.

Mr. Calhoun vvas also invited to attend a fes tival at White Sulphur Springs, on tho Kith, and in his lottcr of tho 27th Juno, published in the Globe he comes out in a still louder .strain of ex ultation : " Hut this is not all that has been done.

J. C. Calhoun, June 27. And now, in humble imitation of its illustri- ous leader, hear tho Burlington Sentinel. That paper of tho 21th July, in an articlo devoted to the Subtroasury enumerates (ho following among other blessings that aro to flow from it : It will overthrow the whole splendid but most cor rupt system of extravagant expenditures by tlio Gen ernl Government for uiiconstiiutional obn-cis. kimwn ns tho "Internal Improvement" svstoni HKCAIISF. it will lay the axe at Ihe root nf that most unequal and iniquitous syitem of a "HIGH TARIFF," by setting un) wiiuiu cimiiiiiiimy zi .uunaiy ni work to keep down tho revenue to tho actual wants of tho Government, nil- nunibterod upon tlio most economical scale.

Nor is tins all. Wo aro informed by a per wn who was present at the Locofoco convention at Williston a few weeks since, that a strong tariff resolution was introduced, road twice, and adopted ; but, mark ye, reader, that resolution was suppressed in tho official proceedings pub lished in the Sentinel I What docs this mean I Why was tho resolution adopted I Why was it suppressed 1 The answer is obvious. It was adopted becauso it was in accordance with tho views of a vast majority of tho cf;'ie of thin county ; and suppressed, becauso it was at war with tho principles and measures of the admin istration ! The ofiicc-holders ewre not send it to their masters at Washington. What sort of protection can the industry of the north expect at such hands 1 How long will an intelligent com munity submit to eo gross and flagitious an im position ! indeed, so deep is tno leonng against a protective policy, that it is charged upon tho Whig Candidate that lie is in favour of tho protectivo system hy tho Extra-Globe, and undeserving thoreforo of Southern support. Tho Editor of that rabid paper quotes thu followiiigcxtract, including a resolution, from tho journal of the Senate of Ohio, in which vvc find it italicized us follows : "Air. Harrison morel the adoption nf tiro resolu tions, instructing oar members in Congress to pro cure Ihe. passage qf taiccs modifying the TAlllFF on imported articles, and for the encouragement of domestic manuf ailures and internal improrcmi.ncb ; which icerc read, and ordered to tic on the tabic." December 1 1, 1819. ''Thu Senate then took up tho report of the Committee of tho Wholo upon the reso lutions repealing tho tariff on imported articles, and relative to internal improvements and domestic ma nufactures ; which report vvas amended and agreed to; and em motion to agree to tho following resolution, to wit : "Pcsnlrcd by the General Assembly of the Stale of Ohio, That, In their opinion, tlio present pecuniary embarrassments of the country are, in n great degree, caused hy want of encouragement and protection Pi eloincstic manufactures, mul that good policy requires that such modifications of the tariff, on imported arti cles, bo immediately made!, ns will stop that inunda tion of foreign Merchnmliso which has destroyed or suspended thu operations of the greater part of tho ma nufacturing establishments of tho United States ; which motion to agrco to said resolution vvas uiiani moii'ily decided in thu affirmative. "The yeas and nays having been required, thoso members who wero present, and voted in ihenfDrnm live, were " Messrs. Haldwin, Hrown, Campbell, Fithinn,. Foot, Furnas, HARRISON, Hooker," &c. Additional extracts from tho journal of tho Ohio Senato arc given in the Globe, to show the zenl Gen. Harrison spent in behalf of a protectivo tariff, and for which tlio editor of the Globe complains bitterly, as tho follovr- ing paragraph will show : "In theso propositions of Harri?om i containe-l tho germ of all tho infection of that sordid American, System, which had well nigh proved fatal to Ameri can institutions. The perpetuity of a national debt, monopoly in its most odious form, in privileges to tho richer class, by increaMngtho poverty of iho poorer legislative corruption in tho log-rolling system nnd combinations, to carry out schemes to apprupriato money to their peculiar objects, at thu expense of tho wuiKir seeuons ui uie imou me depraving pouuy 01 distributing surpluses upon ihe national improve menta at the expense of iho Constitution nnd State jurisdic tion ; nnd the fountain of nil the iniquity, in n tarill stripping tho people of their earnings by the Govern ment wants, hut to e-orrupt great clas-es to support it in ils tyrannies, is thu creed embodied in these ILa niso.v resolution1." This is plain language. It can not and will not be misunderstood hy tho North, and the People at tho North will, forever, hold a man, in abhoranco who neglects their inte rests, and, instead of providing for tho whole, country, merely assists tho Southern part of the Union. Such language may injure Gen, Harrison in the estimation of tho Southern Plantors and their "human property," but it does not detract ono jot or tittle from his proud fame in New-England. FOURTH D 1STRICT. Tho Locofoco convention met at Cambridge on the 1th inst. and re-nominated John Smith as a candidate for Congress. Several resolutions but no adelrces were adopted. Tlio resolu tions endorse Mr. Van Huron, Col. Johnson, and John Smith declare friendship for the tarifi, and insist upon "avowals." Mr. Van Ncss, an usual, made a speech ; but vvas quite brief, less spirited than on former occasions, and, wo pre Biime, omitted to abuse Gen. Harrison fur not giving "pledges." Mr. V. N. desired to have been the candidate himself, it is said ; and tho f.ict that ho could now get only a dozen votes in a convention that heretofore nominated his bag. gage, was rather an unkind indication, and doubtless damped his ardor. But this is nothing that concerns us. Inasmuch as nothing is said in the proceed ings about an address on this occasion, it is to bo presumed that the party will adopt the old ad dress of lr?:(I, at which time this same John Smith and this same C. P. Van Ncss were riial candidates. And, for tho purjioso of directing the attention of the democratic portion of the loco feico party to this document, we epiote an extract or two together with the running comments of the Sentinel, upon Mr. Smith's political charac ter, generally. Alluding to this gentleman, the adelress says " He is a man of fair character in private life. " but of the old federal party the opponent "and EI.VILER of .Irflhson and Madison "tho STRUNUOUS OPPOSKR of the lat " war, and found exerting all his inlltienco to " thwart the government in tho pio.-ccution of it "and if wo may judge from his past political " course, he has not discarded the principles by " which he was then governed." Democratic Address, Aug. 1531. This is the testimony of a democratic conven tion, composed of the leading men from all parts of the district men familiar, it is to bo presum ed, with Mr. Smith's character and early histo ry. But to this, the Franklin Journal domurrcil, whereupon the Sentinel of the next week added the following cloudier: "John Smith was opposcel to tho last war, has " always Uvn a rankfuleralisl, anil if lie did not " live to opjKise the election and administration "of Thomas Jellerson, he has rendered himself " equally culpable with those who did, by a zeal " ous opposition throughout his whale political "career, to Jolloroonian principles. Will tho " writer or tho editor of the Journal deny this " Why has the writer (in tho Franklin Journal) "with such jcsuitical finesse, passed over tho "chargo of federalism made upon Mr. Smith in "tho address! Docs ho think that the demo, "cratic freemen will bo deceived by this puerilo 'nttcinptat whitewashing his former political " character, and by it be drawn into his support ! " Was ho not the zealous coadjutor of the Hon. " Benjamin Swift during iho last war ! And do "the leading partizans of Mr. Smith consieler " men who deemed it unbecoming a moral and "religious people to rojoico at our victories, "1)011 democrats !" Sentinel, Au& -", ISlU. Such was tho Fignificant inquiry of the Sontf. liolin littlo dreaming that it would bo called upon to prove that this emo "revilor of Jollbrson, ono who ilconio.l it unbecoming a moral and religious people to icjoico at our vie lories," was indeed a "good democrat."
