Vouasl; liie, if, in yieltlinu' my support to Cien Har rison for the Presidency, 1 havo dccrtcd any of thu democratic principle which I have heretofou; advoca ted! I answer unhesitatingly that I hire not. And, ns an evideneo of it; I begicavc tortfer you to my letter addressed to the Hon. A. W. Snyder; at his re quest; which Idler was published in the ."Uadisoiii.ni. Hack woodsman, State llegi-Ocr, and other papers; and I would thank the editors ofthose papers to ro-publis.li tho letter as it will show the People what my views wcrn upon the Sub-Treasury scheme many years ago. In the letter referred to, I expressed my decided oppo sition to the present ruinous sub-Treasury system, which ii now looked upon as a thrciitniii florin, which will desolate and lay waste our hade and cwii incico, and bring our People to poverty and want. I still ronliiinc to advocate the original principles which Gcnci.d Jackson avowed, and which Mr. Vnn Iluren promised to carry out, and in view of which promise, I warmlv .supported Ins i lection loihePiesi deney. Rut Mr. Van Huron has himself abandoned those, original measures of Gen. Jackson, by thrice urging upon the People the sub-Treasury system, which the People, throiiLdi their immediate. Repre sentatives, have t'irirc rejected. When he first re commended tho adoption 'of the present sub-Treasury system, he promised to go ''in accordance with tho wishes of the People." He has failed to do so. I therefore am conm-ll'd. trom a sense of duly to myself and my country, to my tint I cannot mulct' liny encumstaiices, be induced to yielil him my mippnt, at least, not until I ian support him on prin ciple. When General Jack.son letired from nfhVe, he left tho Govcrnm-ut in n moic prosperous, jndi pendent, nn I hapjiy situation thin any oilier nation on earth; nnd what, let me ask, is the condition of tjiccounliy JIOW? Let every true lover of his country, every true Re publican, rcllcct upon llie situation wo ate now placed in. Let them also icincmbcr that in nil imtnlries where HtcSnli-Trcasiiry is in opt ration the laboring r.as? rcinnra in poverty, leithout any hope of betiding their condition -the rich daily grnieing richer upon xhe labor of the. poor, and are in enncpuw r. enablid 'o support vwnarc'iy, pries'craj'l and aristocracy, which, when connected loi'etlicr, area tiinity of urti do which no country has been able, to compete with; nud tho warl uo ae.unsl which hascot money and blood enough to make every rellcctintj p'-rbon cry out, in the language uf tho Proplict, 'Oh that my head were waters, and my cycsn fountain of tears, that I might weep over" the misery and tulleriny in store for the. People of this nation. A Standing' Army must be connected with this a liouiinable scheme; and notwithstanding Wnshinq Ion. JcHerson and all their successors m the Presl. dcnli il chair down to Mr. Van Iluren, recommend n Ftnall number of troops in time of peace, j-et we find that tho present Incentive, thronim the Seerctarv nf War, has recommended tho raising an nrmy of vuu.uuu men, one nan io no iiuuer pay, ana tnu re mainder ready to be called into .service at a moment's winning. The power which such an army would give the Piesidenl, both physical and political, must be evident to rverv rclrotui" man. 1 hev arc to bo ca eil mill tin, instead of regulars, for the purpose of securing to lliein thoimlit ol voting, wlueli is not allowed toieg ulnr troops; thus placing under the control of the Pics idclit 200.000 voters, lobe ued in mav best suit hif interest. And should he at any time to be disposed to places crown upon his head, ho would have at his command 200,000 bayonets. These aro some of the principle considerations that have induced me to nledne mvself to support (Sen. Win. H. Harrison; and I would appeal nt tins time to the original Jacksoiiian Democrats with whom 1 have ro long acted in good faith, to say whether Mr. Vnn Huren did not ruin into oll'ieii on the wiims officii. 'JackHon's popularity! Arid I would nsk them also, if ihey did not vote for Mr Van Ilurf n becau-e. ho prom i(rt to carry out tho great democratic principles of ticn. Jaeiiion s iirst n'tiiuni 'tiatwii.' 1 am lice to acknowledge that I did. In t hn second place, vou nsk me if the Ilenublicnn party with which I acted m Ifll'Jnud 18111, constitutes anvtiortionoi mat party wlueli supported .tir. CJlin ton in opposition to Mr. Madison? In answer, I say it did not. The old Do Witt Clinton narl v were ecu- rrnllvknown nnd always termed in those days, "the Ann-War I'ederal party." '1 bey supported Mr. Clm ion beenusoho was a rank Federalist, nnd nn uncoin promising opponent of the war. It wai on tint ground I mystlf opposed Dim. hi living then as I do tiow, thnt his flection would have proved ruinous to tin liberties of the people. That Mr. Van Ituren then supported De Witt Clinton is a matter of history that will not be denied. In conclusion. I would aflertion'itcly nppenl to the old Jacksoiiian Democrats to come out boldly nud frnrlcHy in favor of their original principles nud their own pecuniary interest, (io to the polls nnd cast your votes for the Old Hern of the II 'est the man who fought the battlesof your country, and to whom you aro indebted, in a great measure, for your present i;uiet homes, mid the liberty nml freedom which we ouw enjoy, I linvt-iho honor to remain, Vour nlrd't humble serv't., WILLIAM KINNUV.

Now hear what was then said bv the Senator from H. Carolina, who triumphniillv nsks. "who is respon sible for thu extravagance I" "Mr. Calhoun said the Senator (Mr. Wright) had made one of thq best of nil possible arguments for preserving the surplus. No Senator had estimated the whole surplus at tho end of the year, including the $7,000,000 in the United Stales Hank, nnd exclusive or the year's expenditures, nt less than sG(i,000,000. The ."Senator trom York nail earnestly cuueavoreo to prove that the expenditures of this administration, this year, would amount to this $(50,000,000. Mr. Calhoun made an earnest nppcnl to Senators, whether they weru prepared to rise so soon from nimiial gov ernment exi)foiliiiirriifSI''00().000. then deemed liro- tligal, to tho enormous sum of $011,000,000, nnd thnt too in tune ot peace: ' Is thu question of the Senator, "who is responsible for this extravagance," now niiHWerrd '! nut let us return to Uelinto m tne sennio on uio in troduction of this document. There is another Sen- ntor that I desire to answer : I mean the Senator from Pennsylvania. Mr.'Huchanan said ! "I rejoice nt this day's ilebntc. It has been the moat nronittoils day for eliding truth which wo havo seen hiiicu the commencement of the session. Its consequences for good or for evil must be felt, cither by our friends in the opposition or bv ourselves. I ntu most willing to abide tho result. I ilo not rise to discuss nny of tho great (mentions agi tated to-day, which have not an immediate bearing on the snbiect before the Senate. M v purpose is, so far as my voice ran bo heard, to fix the attention of tlie .'senate nnd tne country upon tne very question now at issue between the two great political pulies, which is, ''have the present administration been guilty of nn extrvagant and wasteful expenditure of the pub- lie nmnev ".Mr. Van Iluren came into office on tho -Ith of March, 19.17. Since that day, womnst nil admit that tin' tteasiiry lias not been lull, on tne contrary, we have found difficulty ever since in raising the ways and means. This fact wo cannot deny ! and if wi havo been guilty of cxlragant expenditures of the pilOlie llioiiuy, MUIM1 II1UI IH'IIOU, u l.iil in Mini j,o lilV nor excuso ourselves under tho plea of nil over flowing treasury. We desire to escape this charge under no such subterfuge. We boldly deny tho accu sation of extravagance preferred nguinst us by our po litical opponents, ana demand me proois ny wiucii u " In order In establish their accusation that this nil ministration has been guilty of nn extravagant nnd mincers irv expenditure of the people's money, since ilie .lib of March !S:t7. they must clearly and distinct ly point out the items and the objects of this extrava gant and llllll-cosiry cxpeinmnie. m- ran iliem for their bill of particulars. We nsk them when, where and how have these expenditures been incur red ! Vague and general charges ot extravagance, nltbonirb clothed in the most ebullient lanuttnge, can amount to nothing. We call for specifications for items. Ily his report mini the becrctaty ot tne I rea sury, we furnish our opponents with the. best wea a.m's in ni.ail u. if we are vulnerable. It enumerate! under dilleretit heads all the expenditures of public money, since the present administration came into power". It presents the subject, item by item, nnd makes an aggrcgnto for the last year, of thirty seven millions nfdollara." And again he says : "Three years of expenditures of the present administration nre now before the coun try, and 1 Minn expect, ni nn cany nay, io nenr irom ou'r friends in the opposition on this subject. I repeat again, let them point out tho items oi cxtravngance mul if wn who aro the political friends of this ndmin istintion ennnot defend each one of them in detail, we must sulfur the consequences. Tho people of this country have aright to know whethernny, and if nny, what amount of the thirty-seven millions of dollars paid out of the treasury during the last year has been expended without nccessiiy. Hero then tho Senator from Pennsylvania boldly throws down the L-aunllet, and bids defiance to the whole opposition ; and i.ir, without meaning to be pre sumptuous I boldly tat.o it up. The Senator first contradicts the statement madu by bis new ally, when lie says there has been extravagance and it is manly to admit it and then he calls for items nud specifica tion", and pledges himself to sutler all the consequen ces II MIC iricnos oi me aill fuauuii mnom irouiu each item m detail.

Well, it t look that much less to pay the nrmv nnd feed the officers, it might nnliirnlly lie expected that it would require less to subsist that nrmy ; lint extraordinary as it may annear. tho next item, 'subsistence nnd for age' is increased from 5132, Wi to 8 1, 02.1, 130, making mi increase ol fcOHisUs largely upwards ot hall a million of dollars.

Let tnu rcler you lo honatu document No. 127, '2d session ol'thu'2)lh Congress, and this riddle will be solved. A friend has put into my hand n speech delivered on lis floor by tho honorable gentleman from Indiana, MrProlfit, to whom the country will be indebted for his research, in whirh he dilutes' largely from the doc ument I have referro I to, and ns it is there presented in a more convenient and condensed form, I wid read from that instead of the document itself; although I have the document before me, and any gentleman can read it. The gentleman says : "In senate document '2d session 25i.li Congress, vol. 3, 1 find n statement of contracts for fuel, transporta tion &e. for the quartermasters department, for 1837, and signed T.

And besides the one hundred and eleven vessels chartered, I find up- ards of one hundred contracts, some of them of a very largo amount, for transportation of troops, for age, arms, horses, eve. diiiiug that year, lor this war. Sir, the party in power is justly chamcaldo wilh hav ing unnecessarily involved the country in this war. and then with having wasted the monev appropriated for its prosecution. "I will give also another charge irom the same doc ument. 'I' or transporting 100 cords ol lire wood from New Orleans to Fort Proekc, Fast Florida and one assistant surgeon, $2,000.' Here, sir, is charged twenty dollars per cord tor , carrying firewood ftom New Orleans, besides the original cost nnd other ex penses; and that too, to n country where, as I nm as sured bv gentlemen well neotiaintcd with tho country. thousands ot corns oi wood could oc cut m sight ol the fort to which this wood was sent.

In that mtiienl, I find n communication from (lie Coinmis sarv licnrral of .Subsistence, addressed to Mr I'oiusett and I there perceive that the Government, after pur chasing imnecossariiy a vast amount oi provisions, vc. for the army, sent it to the Cherokee country, nml inmg no use tor it, ordered u io no point and i win uiotenn extract from that communication : 'The supplies sold consisted of 50 barrels pork,2,Gl" barrels Hour, 821 barrels hard bread, 272J bushel. beans, 10.1 bushels corn meal, 109 bushels coin, 500 litis he s salt, 75.027 pounds sugar, '11,297 POundscoU'ee. 133 pounds rice, 531,0.0 pounds bacon, 28. 181. pounds soap, ll.liu pounds eanuies, ,m gallons whiskey, 5,115 gallons vinegar, nud nil the issuing apparatus, such as scales, weights, and measures, used while the volunteer troops wcrom service, 'ilietc articles pro need the nelt siimot Willi "JO.

Wo last week alluded to the subject of the tarifl and attempted to show from indisputable testimony, that the present administration and its leading adherents, aro bent upon uprooting the protective system. Ho full and unequivocal i the testimony on this point, that no candid man can doubt as to the fact. Indeed, no adininistra. tion man here, pretends to deny it. Por the purpose, then, of showinj; those friends of dome tic industry, who still rank themselves wilh the supporters of Mr. Van Iluren and there arc many such under the mistaken idea that ho is following in the footsteps and carrying out the democratic principles of his illustrious prcdcccs sor, we invite their attention to the following exposition of Gen. Jackson's views on the sub. jeet, as given in his letter to Dr. Coleman, of N, Carolina, in April, 18:21. The experience of the laic war ought to teach ns lesson, nnd one never to be forgotten. If our liberty nun repiiniican lorm oi government, procured lor ns by our revolutionary fathers, are worth the b oud and treasure nt which they were obtained, it surely is our duty to protect nnd detenu tlicin. unn theru beau American patriot, who saw tho privations, dangers and difiiculties experienced for the want of proper means of defence during the last war. who would be ,!!,,, -,,,.,;,, In l,r,r,l it,., .nf..,,. f ..Mr ,.,,, r,. ll" ciubroilcii, or to rest it for defunct; on the precarious means of national resource lobederived from coinmerco in a statu of war with a maritime power, who might destroy that commerce to prevent tis obtaining the means of defence, and thereby subdue us 7 I hope there is not -, and if there is, 1 am sure he does not deserve to enjoy the blessings of freedom. Heaven smiled upon, and gave us liberty and independence. That same Providence has blessed us with the means of national independence and national defence. If we omit or refuse to use the gifts w hich he has extended to us, we deserve not tho continuation of his blessings. Hchas filled our inountainsand our plains with minerals with lead,iron,and copper; and givenns climate and soil for the growing of hemp and wool.Thcse being the grand materials of our national defence, they ought to have ex tended to them ndeduato nnd fair protection, that our own manufactories and luborcrsmay be placed on a fair com petition with those of F.uropc, and that we may have, within our country, a supply, of those leading and im portant articles, so essential in war. Ueyoud this, I looked at the tariff with an eye to the proper distribu tion of labor, and to revenue ; and with a wicw to dis charge our national debt. I nm one of those who do not believe that a national debt is a national blessing, but rather n curte to a republic , inasmuch as it is cal culated to raise around tho administration n inonicd aristocracy, dangerous to the liberties of the country. This TarilV possesses more fanciful than real danger. I WILL ASK, WHAT IS TIIK RKAL SITUATION OF THU UHUCI'LTUIUST ? WHKRH HAS THK AMF.RICAN FARMIUtaM UtKF.T FOR HIS SIJRl'Lr.S I'ltODUCT . KXCKPT FORCOTTON. HK HAS NKITIIKR A FOREIGN OR HOME MARKET. DOES NOT THIS CLEARLY" PROVE WHEN THERE IS NO MARKET EITHER AT HOME. OR AliROAD, THAT THERE IS TOO MUCH LAHOR EMPLOYED IN AGRICULTURE; AND THAT THE CHANNELS FOR LAHOR SHOULD HF. MULTIPLIED? COMMON SENSE POINTS OUT AT ONCE, THE REMEDY. DRAW FROM AGRICULTURE THIS SUPERA HUNDANT LA HOR ; EMPLOY IT IN MECHAN ISM AND MANUFACTURES; THEREBY" CREATING A HOME MARKET FOR YOUR BREAD-STUFFS, AND DISTRIBUTING L -HOR TO THK MOST PROFITABLE ACCOUNT ; AND BENEFITS TO THE COUNTRY WILL RE SULT. TAKE FROM AGRICULTURE, IN THE UNITED STATKS.SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND MEN, WOMKN AND CHILDREN, AND YOU WILL AT ONCE GIVE A DOMIC MARKET FOR MORE BREAD-STUFFS THAN ALL EUROPE NOW FURNISHES U.S. IN SHORT, SIR, WE II WE BEEN TOO LONG SUBJECT TO THE POLICY OF THE BRITISH MERCI1 NTS. IT IS TIME THAT WE SHOULD BECOME A LIT TLKAMi:i:iCA.yj:i); AND, INSTEAD OF FEEDING THKPAUPKRS AND LABORERSOF ENGLAND, FEED OUR OWN: OR ELSE, IN A SHORT TIME, BY CONTINUING OUR PRE SENT POLICY, WE SHALL ALL BE RENDER ED PAUPERS OURSELVES. It is therefore, myopinion, that n careful and judi cious tarifl is much wanted, to pay our national debt, and nfi'ord us the means ol thai defence within our selves, on which the safety of our country and liberty depends ; and last, though not least give a proper dis tribution lo our labor, which must prove beneficial to the happiness, independence and wealth of the com munity, 'This isa short outline of my opinions, generally, on the. subject of your inquiry, and believing them cor rect, and calculated to further the prosperity and hap piness of my country, 1 declare lo you, 1 would not barter them for any office or situation of n temporal character, that could be given me. ANDREW JACKSON. This is the true American view of the sub jeet, and Gen. Jackson has expressed it in strong energetic language. What patriotic freeman does not realize that we "have been too long subject to tho policy of the British merchants," and who does not agree with ticn. Jackson that " it is time wo should become a little more Amer icanized j and instead of feeding the paupers and laborers of England, feed our own ; or else, in a short lime we bhall he rendered paupers ourfcelves." But how is it witli Mr. Van Iluren ! Wo find iiiin at open war with this doctrine denying both the power and the policy of pro tcction, and seeking to bring the American la borer to the level of the pauper of Europe. Ho glories in the reflection that "the young lion of democracy has scattered tho protcctivo tarifl' to the four winds" Mr. Calhoun llianks God that "the protective policy is gasping its last breath" tho Globe proclaims " uncompromising hos tility" to it and tho Sentinel lauds tho sub-trcat-ury scheme "because it will lay the n.o at thu root of that most unequal and iniquitous sys tem of a high tarifl'." And this in is what is called carrying out Gen. Jacksoii'fl principles I an upon wnifaio upon iho only measure that Gen. Jticksou relied upon lo savo us, as a nation, front pauperism. Lot tho honest supporlcrH of Gun. Jackson tho friends of Amoricnu indus try those who would havo t heir country inde pendent of Uio " policy of British morcliauts," oxauiiuo this subject and sco whero the support of tho present administration will lead them. Tho present is a momentous crisis, mid tho rck suit of this election settles the question of pro. tcction for tho no.t twonty yearn. DIRECT TAXES. Amefl Kemhllletrayu boiuq alarm in !ui Ux- tra Olobo at tho predicament into which lie and his coadjiitorB havo brought the country, or ra ther at the premature avowal of the Calhoun men, that Iho roveiiuo must bo supplied by di rect taxes. Fearful that tho agitation of this matter before election may hurt tho causo of tho spoilers, ho disavows tho direct tax system on thopartof tho government, ntul nays the Tarifl must bo modified. Hut how lnodillcd! Mr. Van Huron's southern allies, positively declare that when the compromise tarifl is altered, no duties must be shaped with any refcrenco to the pro tection of American labor, produce, or manu factures. Tho Globe ibself has constantly re pudiated and denounced tho protecting system ns an abomination. If any alteration of tne Tarifl" Is therefore mado under the auspices of the present administration, it will bo according to tho southern plan of taxing all imports alike, that is laying just as heavy duties on tea, collbc, spices, sugar, molasses, drugs, and all tropical productions, as arc levied on boots, shoes, sad tilery, cabinet ware, hats, caps, wool, woollen nnd cottcn goods of all kinds ; so that the Aincri can producer, the American mechanic, farmer or laborer shall have no protection from the competition of cheap European labor, except what is derived necessarily from ad valorem du ties. The cfl'oct of this will be seen at once Protection will bo in a great measure withdrawn from American labor, so that wages will be greatly reduced, while at the same time the du tics on tea, codec, &c. which wcro abolished in 18'M, will be restored and the prices of these foreign productions must rise. The upshot will be this wages reduced lower, and all foreign articles (not produced in the country) higher than they are now. THE WEST AND SOUTH. Hut a few weeks since, Toryism was elated and the hearts ofloco-focos swollcd with joy on reading in the (HobeauA its collar echoes, the glorious prospects of Van Buiien in the West and South. Louisiana, they were told, would give a large majority for the administration can didatcs for Congress ; that Indiana would elect General Howakd its Governor, was without scarcely the shadow of a doubt; that Kentuckv had no sympathy or attachment for any Win but Ci.av, and all his cflbrts to induce her to vote for IlAr.ittsoN would be unavailing; that Noktii Cakoi.ina would elect Saundkiis Gov ernor by five thousand majority, and a Legislature that would triumphantly return Messrs. Bnow.N and Strange to the Senate of the United States and approve, by a formal vote, the proceedings of the last session of Congress, and the official acts of Mr Van Buiien ; and that Alabama, Illinois and Missouni would increase their majorities for the Administration. How these pleasing anticipations of Toryism have been realized, lot the returns show. WHO ARE THE ARISTOCRATS! Van Ness in his speeches denounces the Lawyers and Merchants as the aristocracy, and calls the Harrison party the aristocratic party. Just look at it. Tho Whigs support Harrison for President, who is a farmer. They support in the State, Jcnison for Gov ernor, Camp for Lt. Governor, and Janes for Treasurer all of whom arc practical farmers, They support Mccch and Crafts for electors at large, neither of whom is a lawyer. The other side Dillingham and Barber, arc lawyers, and Baldwin, the candidate for treasurer is a merchant. Van Ness, and Bradley, the electors at large arc both lawyers. Van Buren is also a lawyer. They stand thus of the six candidates named none of the Harrison men arc exclusively pro- lessiouai men. un tne oilier nana llie six Van Buren candidates five arc lawyers, and the other is a merchant. Who arc the Aristocrats, Mr. Van Ness ! Huzza for the aristocratic lawyer ticket. Cale donian. ARE WE ALL READY ! Are our Whig friends thoroughly organized for action in every town ! Now is the time. It is expected that every Harrison and Reform man will be at his pont doing every thing he can to spread abroad truth and to arouse his neighbors and friends who are tired of the prcs scnt embarrassments, to a concentrated and vigorous cflbrt to place Vermont on that high and commanding eminence which shall satisfy the corrupt minions of a tottering dynasty that their cflbrts aro all in vain. Every thing looks well in Vermont. The South and middle Coun ties give out unequivocal indications that they arc about to rally with a spirit and energy nev er before equalled. Shall wc of the North be found wanting at such a time ! No NO. TO THE RESCUE FRIENDS OF HAR RISON ! Caledonian. A WORD TO OUR WHIG FRIENDS IN THE SEVERAL TOWNS. Avoid splitting and dividing for Representa tives. For reasons we have not time now to explain wc have sufl'ercd much loss from tin cause. Not a few Whig towns last year were misrepresented by loco foco radicals owing to divisions among the Whigs. Let all private and personal views be merged in the great cause of National Reform. It is no time now, when every thing is nt stake, to weaken our streugth by petty scrambles for small offices. There is, wcarc proud to say, a right feeling abroad on this subject much disinterestedness, and a re luctaucc rather than a forwardness to be placed in nomination for any office. This augurs well Let us select the strongest man, the man who can unite us best and go for him altogether, sink ing all petty grievances and private grids. Arrangements hare been made by the Locos to strike for a Hepresentatiic in every town in thr Stale, ami if the friends of Harrison do not look out they will lose Representatives where they least expect it. Our enemies will seek to divide us. Let our watchword be UINIUN. Lvcry man for Union. Let our motto be, EVERY T' IING FOR THE COUNTRY and the CAUSE, and NOTHING for MEN- Caledonian. ! From the Lamoillo Whig. SEDITION LAWS oFjOHN ADAMS AND JOHN .SMITH. Ma. Emron Ily an article in vour last paper on the project of o Standing Army, I havo been led to compare the proposed Law of Mr. Van Iluren with the famous .Sedition I.awof John Adams' ndmiuUiintinti; nnd 1 find the one now ntlcmpted to be fuMcncd upon this nation, by n Democratic President, inoro odious nnd iiiili.Repiibliciiii, if possible, than that of the older Adams, which as deservedly become a hissing nnd a by word throughout tho country. Hut what was my surprise, on investigating this subject a htllo farther, lo Itiid, among tho Herised Jaus of Vermont, paseed ni tlio Inst Session of our Legislature, a hv equally as odious and reprehensible as the law of John Adams or the prtrpostd line of Mr. Van Jlurcn ! In Iho ciimiiial code, (which, lent bo homo in mind, waspariiculaily nsHigned to JOHN SMITH for revision,) we find tho following i "Skc. VI.

Now, fel low citizens, should these remarks meet your eye, let mo ask you one plain, simple question ; and that is, how many legal voters who stay at home on election day, when they could just as well go to the polls as not, would it take to car ry a point where it is necessary that a man should be elected who is favorable to it ! Is it not necessary in cases of important questions to be decided by the popular vote, thnt every voter, known or supposed to bo favorable to the party supporting or opposing those measures, should be brought into the field ! If so, then no one subject ought to allow any thing short of abso lute incapacity, or tiic dangerous sickness of his family to form an excuse for neglecting to at tend the polls ; not but that there is a fair prospect of a pretty full turn out on the occa eiou of the approaching election ; still, as there aro almost alwaya sonic who make for them solves a deal of work to do on election day, which they might as well forego, I would say to every laboring man, of age, to vote, if you feci any interest in tho question whether you arc willing to have your wages reduced, and the profits of your cattle and horses, and the pro ducts of your farms lesscnd, by the rascally and ruinous policy of an aristocratic- administration, Go to the polls, on the first of September next and answer it by your vote at the ballot box. Punctuality. Huntington, Aug. 17, 1310. THE HOUR. It should bo borne in mind bv the Whis of the several towns in this State, that, bv the new law, in all towns whose population enreeh two thousand, the polls open at ten o'clock, A. M. in those whoso population is loss than two thousand, at one o'clock, P. M. and close in ooi n cases, ai initi-ii-i o clock. It is im portant that this fact should bo generally un derstood, as many persons aro in the habit of delaying their attendance at the pulls till the very last hour, to avoid the crowd ; and in con sequence, not a few lost their votes last vcar, from ignorance of the alteration in the law Let every one uitdorMand it this year, and be on the ground promptly at llie hour, nor leave it till the result is declared. ESSEX MEETING. There will be a great gathering at Essex, to morrow, and wc have reason to believe that those who attend will be richly compensated A number of distinguinhcd individuals will bo there, and among them, Mr. Sladc, who will ad dress the assemblage. The Essex boys, wc learn, arc erecting a magnificent log cabin for the occasion, and every requisite accommodation will be furnished. It is requested that the citizens of Burlington who desgin to attend, should a.-s-cinblc at " Uncle John's" log cabin, at cloven o'cclock, wlicro a large number of teams will be in readiness for the accommodation of those who arc not other wise provided with conveyances. TIPPECANOE CLUB. A special meeting of the Tippecanoe club will be held at the Court House, THIS EVENING, at the usual hour. Wc arc happy to perceive an increasing interest manifested in theso as semblages ; and, from the character of the speak crs expected to-night, wc arc warranted in tho belief that this interest will be amply gratified on the present occasion. PROFLIGACY. Wc refer the reader to an extract from the speech of Mr. Botts, of Virginia, for a "specifi cation" of some of the items of extraordinary expenditure under this administration. What say, farmers don't you believe tho man who bought the government corn at three cents ;i bushel, had somo fat hogs ! LOOK OUT FOR FRAUDS. The present is the deatli-strugglo of the office holders, and there is no limit to their despera tion. All sorts of tricks will be resorted to split tickets, frauds upon the ballot boxes, and tho like. Twenty or thirty locofoco votes were smuggled into the ballot box in this town, two years ago, before the opening of the poll, and it was by the merest accident that the trick was discovered. Let tho pcoplo bo on their guard VOTES. Wc shall be prepared with votes for State District and County officers, early next week and wo would suggest that persons attending court should procuro a supply for thoir respec tivo towns, before they leave. Price- SO cents per hundred. PENNSYLVANIA. The tone of confidence in Pennsylvania grows louder ami louder, and our frionds there aro full of assurance in tho success of tho good cause. Tho Log Cabin Rillo promises to issue an extra, after tho election, to conlain tho joyful iutclli goncc that Pennsylvania has 'JO.OOO majority for Harrison. One thing is very certain ; tho wings of Ponnsylva arc determined todotcrvo success, and that ia a good asiittranco thai ihoy will com. maud it OHIO. Alfred Kollcy, Esq. of Columbus, Chairman of tho Whig Central Committco of Ohio, ml. dressed the Whigs of Rochester on Tuesday. Tho Rochester Whig says: "In the Stale of " Ohio, Mr. Kollcy said that the changes from " Van Burcnism to the cause of tho People, "were almost incredible. The State Commit. " tec have on file uovcral thousand names, scce- "dcrs from the Administration ranks. Harki. "son's majority in that Stale will not fall short "of 18,0000. These statements aro mado ad " visedly, and may bo relied upon as accuralo "indeed they fall short of what will be realized "in the falh CELEBRATION AT BENNINGTON. The Battle of Bennington was cclcbralce by the Whigs on the Mth, in magnificent style. Wc learn from the Troy Whig, that there wero from ten to twelve thousand persons present. The procession, says that paper, was ncicral miles in length. In it was a log cabin drawn by twenty-five yoke of oxen, and another drawn by twelve horses. A principle attraction was a wagon containing nearly one hundred ladies, and drawn by twelve horses. This immense assem bly was first addressed by a revolutionary Whig whoso name wo have not learned. Col. Stone, of tho N. V. Commercial Advertiser next mado a speech of about an hour in length, and wad followed by the Hon. N. P. Tallmadge, of New York, who spoke for nearly two hours with bin usual ability and eloquence. After Mr. Tall madge had concluded; General Wilson of N. II. was loudly called for, and for two hours and a half delighted his audience by one of the sound est, and inostcfibctivc speeches ever delivered. The Green Mountain Democracy were assem bled at Bennington in their strength. Vermont will give Harrison as large, if not a larger ma jority in proportion to her population, as any state in the Union. DECEPTION OF THE TOllY PRESS. It is truly amusing to witness the contor tion and writliings of tho Tory prossat their defeats. They have been, for so long a timu declaring that their party was about to carry nearly every State in the Union, that they really began to believe their own falsehoods ; and the overwhelming extent of thoir defeat so far exceeding their worst fears creates a corresponding disappointment nnd chagrin which they cannot conceal. It is Iaughablo to hear the New York Post declaring it novor imagined their nartv would carrv Indiana. the very day after it had published a brag ging and lying letter in its columns from a Tory member of Congress, stating that the election of Howard was conceded on all hands Its readers must feel very much obliged to it for the hoax which it thus acknowledges it played off upon thorn by giving as truth what it did not credit. So thu Boston Morning Post talks about the exultation of tho Whigs, because they arc not beaten in their strong-holds. And yet this same paper lias been humbugging us iuuuuis iihu tne ncnei mat tlieir party were going to carry Indiana by a majority of from seven to ten thousand. Tlio following letter published by that paper will show either its confident hopes or its kuaverv. Corrtfpondcncc of the Boston Morning Post. Extract of a letter dated isniAJTATOLW, Jtttio??, 1810. "Tell our friends that Indiana, the boasted cnstlo of Harrison, is coniuur to tlm mrn. m,,i i .1.... ellcct of our victory here on the 3d of August must bo great all over i the eastern States, proving that Herri- ron nn.-j not me strength in the west his friends iiavo boasted of ever v where.

The deception practised by the Tory pa pers relative to Indiana was universal. every paper in tiic country of any promin ence joined in tho conspiracy to cheat and delude the people. The Albany Argus pub lishcd a letter from Indianapolis written "by a gentleman of high standing:' "well ac quainted jcith the political condition of the Stalo," on tiic 25th June last. The follow ing is an extract. "1 havo full confidence that the democrats will elect lien.

Wu have already referred to tho shame ful excess of villany on the pact of the Globo in the share that paper had in this piece of docoption.
