It is well known that one great argument of the IicoFooo orators und editors used against the Whig party, is that the Whigs are the aris tocrats of the land, and it is equally notorious that the constant effort of the Loco Foco lead cm ia to array the poor against the rich. They also continually charge the Whigs with being opposed to universal suffrage, and with a wish to introduce a property qualification for voters. Wc have now an opportunity to show which part' have cause to apprehend the most from universal suffrage, or who arc the gainers by the bame. By the Constitution of North Carolina, the members of the Senate (50 in number) are c Jectcd in Districts by the white freemen who are posscssfd of a freehold, within the same district, of 50 accrs of land; while the Governor an the members of the House of Commons are elc ted by "all freemen of the age of 21 years nnd upwards, who have been inhabitants of le State twelve months immediately proceed jig the election." (equivalent to universal Mill', rage.) We now solicit the attention of both Whigs .ml lrn Fncns tn thn following statomnnt of , ' 13 . I comparative returns of votes at tho recent e lection in North Carolina, for members of the Senate and of tho House of Commons, in .'10 counties, being all which were contested, from which we have complete returns. In those tountius, it will he pleasant to the Whigs to observe, that while they have a majority of 2,810 among tho owners of the soil, their ma jority is increased to 4,U'M on the vote for tho members of the House of Commons, by an ex tended right of franchise. In the same couu. tics the Whig majority for Governor, who is also elected by universal suffrage, is 4,3:12 and in the whole State 6,158a.

In almost every county our majority is put fifty per cent, too low. Albany and Rensselaer, will each give near er 800 than 100 Whig majority. Alleghany, llrooinc, Caternugus, Cortland, Essex, Franklin, JcfTcison, Munroc, ISiagara, Ontario and Orhntis, will give more than double thu majority allowed. Chautaque will give from 2000 to 2500.. Eric will give 3000 in sleaeiof 2000. Genesee will give at least 3500 instead of 2500 ) and wo will pay Mr. Croswcll n dollar, for every vote that Oen.

WHO ARE THE FEDERALISTS ? In our early boyhood, the answer to this iiction wo dd Invo bj 'n,'tlnt "tli ! cue nics of Ja. .AJidison and the War were the Federalists." At tint day, tin; Tariff, and Internal Improements, and even the monster Hank of the United .State, were Republican measures, in support of all of which, such leading Re publicans as Madison, Monroe, Lowndes, Calhoun, Ohevcs, Crawford, Clay, Grundy, Smith of Mary land, Forsyth, Ilirlelt Vaneey,' &c. were warmly arrayed. Mr. Crawford, tint distinguished Georiria Republican, advocited. with tMUWiulnnt ability, the re-charter of the old liink in If 10, In February, 1811, Mr. Calhoun proposed a new National Hank. A committee accordingly rcpoitcd a hill, but its dctsils were not a ccplablc, and it was not acted on. In April of the s iuic year, Mr. Grimily, (yc-, the present Democratic.

Earlvin the n-xt s-ssinn, that sterling Republican, A. J. Dallas, Mr. Madison's Secretary of the Treas ury, strongly rccoiu-ncndcd 11 National Hank, on grounds both of cxpcdi-'iicv and constitutionality ; and the House, by a voti of 91 tool, decided that "it U expedient toestabli-haN.ali inal Hank, with llranches in lhi!si;vtriil,Stales," Ofthr,51 ,ns, about 20 wort- l-'ederalits.

Tim hi failed. A new ono was introduce"! by that old Republican, .'as. Harbour, nfVri., pa-scd the Se nate, and w as most ably supported in the Houmi by Mr. Forsyth, (now Secrcfiiy of Stale.)

The absence of tho precious metals will, it is beliuved, be a tempo rary evil ; but, until they can n-'ain bo rendered tho general medium of exchange, it devolves on the wis dom of Coultcss to provide a substitute, which shiill equally engage the confidence and accommodate tho wants of the citizens throughout tho Union.

TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES. Thu Territories aro under tho sole and exclusive ju risdiction of the United States. Their laws must be submitted to tlie.Prcsident ami to Congress; and all Executive and judicial officers arc appointed by the President nnd Senate. Their citizens cannot vote for President or any of the officers of tho General Government, nor upon any of tho measures of Government and they nrc regar ded by the Constitution as the property of the nation. To the Nation, therefore, to whose will they are subject, they may with propriety appeal, as the Rep resentative of Wisconsin, I respectfully submit (m this and another communication) the following facts to your consideration. Thcru is, or should be, noth ing political in their character t they have reference only to a pure, faithful nnd just administration of Government, according to the wants unel wishes of of the People ! During the session of Congress which has just clo sed, after many efforts had been made to induce the House to set apart one or tieo days for tho considera tion of thu business of the Territories, the last hour of the last day of a session of almost eight months du ration wasrcluctlantly given. There) wtro more than one thousand petitions pre sented from Wisconsin upon subjects cither of private or public interest. To many of these petitions no at tention was given, and where, in other cases, bills were rcportc'tf" the majority, without the slightest ex amination of their provisions, and to avoid n direct vote upon their merits, prevented their passage by in cessant demands for the yens and nays, in the taking of which the tchole of tlu hour teas consumed. These demands were made by Mr. Tiiomtson, of .iiississippi, n prominent meinour ue ine uu imren party in th,c South, and one of the majority, upon a bill to prbvidc.or the protection of commerce on Italic 5t.'i;T.ii,by ill-; construction of harbors on the west ern shore of the lake within the limits of the Territory To this fact I call the attention of the friends of those who have been slnpwrce-kcd and lost their lives on that Lake in consequence of the ne"li-ctof Govern ment for the last thru? years to provide commodious iiarimrs on mat i.axc; 01 those, wliosa steamnoals, vessels and property have bee-n cast upon its shores; of the thousands of persons whose safety has been endangered in the passago over i'H waters, the Von Huron party by tln-ir strength and by their artful man iigoment defeated this bill, This, was the second instance where the etTccts of the union between the Van Hurcn party and Southern Nullitiers were perceptible. Nrw Jehsev, if she is still an independent State, must still feel that she was the victim of the first. I'.ven now she may read on the banners of the party that Van Ilurcn Democra cy sconss iieb nno.n sf.Al. 'In the coalition between .Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Van Huron the latter agreed to be considered a "Northern man with Southern principles" which, being-intcrprct cd, meanthat hcsurrendi-rsupthe principles'and inter ests of the North, for those of theNiillificrs. Among those interest, which were thus sacrifice) by him in or der to secure a majority in Congrcss.nnd perhaps Elec toral votes, tnc protection 01 i;ommcrcc oy the con struction of Harbors nnd Light Houses, aiid the sys tem of Internal Improvements, stand prominent. It must be obvious to every man that these systems can never be rcsstored so long as Mr. Van Hurcn and Mr. Calhoun have the control of the powers of Govern in. -nt. Mr. Woodbury, In his Annual Report to Con gress, cave the first indication that theso wcro con sidcrei! by the coalition as tho branches" upon which retrenchment in tho public expenditures should be first comnieneeel. It has now man'f.-st become that he did not mean by r-'.rcnc'iment a gr tdunl diminuation of the expendi tures fer Roads, Rivers, Harbors and Light-Houses, but a total abandonment of the system. Of this he gave unquestionable evidence in his Letter of Decem ber, 4 13 f9, approved on the same day by Mr. Van Rureh, sec Houso Document No. 7 by which Con grcr,s was informed that he had taken certain specific appropriations made by Congress roa the Erection or LioiiT-lIocfCs and "nppMcd them to the construc tion of the new TnBAsunv Hcii.ding an object in his opinion of greater i-onscquenci! than that our vessels whin ilriv -n bythe storms and gales should be .guided by a bi-acou-light from shoals and rocks into a safe and iju'e'. harbor.

THE GREAT NATIONAL GATHERING AT i HUNKER HILL.. This mighty gathering of llio people look place yesterday, mid appears to havo surpassed iu physical andmoral flranileur the most enthusiastic anticipations. The Iloston Mercantile Journal of yesterday says ! "No description, even frofn the lien of tho Billed 'Scott, could convey a faint idea of the glorious eight, as me procession moved along me street, 1 no tram pling of steeds tho sounds of martial music, the waving of tho American flags, and the great variety of bcautitul banners, with their appropriate devices and pithy mottoes the great number of spectators, who cheered them as they went along tho beautiful women, who. animated by the joyous occasion, thronged the doors, the windows, the balconies, and even (lie house tops, in those streets through which the procession passed, greeting the members of the Convention with their sweetest smiles, and waving their spotless handkerchief as they passod along all formed a grand and magnificent picture, which will remain iiidelhbly stamped on the heart of every person who was so fortunate as to be prcs'clit on this momcnliious occasion." The Transcript estimates the number in the pro cession nt urwAnns or TWRVTV-rtvi: tiiocsand. This immense body was formed in platoons eight deep, extended about five miles, and was one hour andor tl eithi minutes, nt quick march, ill passing tho City Hall. The procession reached Bunker Hill nt 2o'clock, P. M. having been two hours on tho road. Frank lin Dexter, Esq. acted ns chief mnrshal, assisted by a great number of aids. The multitude on the ground at the opening of tho Convention was variously esti mated at from 50.000 to "5,000 ! Ncnrly every State iu the Union wircprcsented. New England poured in her thousands New Vork nnd the Slates to the westward had large delegations present, nnd even the cxtrcnie South ma lo n gallant show. This countless host of freemen was called to order by RoasiiT C. Wis-ninor, Chairman of tho Massa chusettss Whig Central Committee, nftcr which Dan iel Webster appeared, nnd surrounded by vcncrnblo soldiers, who fought tho battles of the revolution and by distinguished men who havo nobly contended for the principles which glowed in the bosoms, and prompted tho actions of tho Whigs of '75 and '7G, addressed the people in his clear and manly voice, and read n long and eloquent declaration of tho principles of the democratic whig party, nnd the occasion and ohjccts.of the meeting. After Mr. Webster had fin ished reaeling this noble production, copies of it were struck off at a printing press which formed a conspic uous object in the procession, and distributed among the members of the Convention. Wo shall publish this able document hereafter. The Trausclipt thus closes a short description of tho thrilling si'cnc : This is one of the most glorious days over witness ed in the city of Iloston. It would be impossible to conjecture the number 01 people now assembled, hut we Ventura to assert that never before were so many people at one time, within tho bounds of this territory. Most of the plai-cs of business are closed, nnd the day given to witness its glorious pageantry. In the histo ry or popular meeting, this lar surpassed any thing that was ever before seen in this country. To give j" iiiuis 01 mi leica oj 1111s pageani, is uupossioic. 1 UK PEOPLE HAVE come!

FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 18. 1910. ATROCIOUS VILLANY. I We have seldom been called upon to record an act of more atrocious villainy, than was per petrated on Friday last by C. 1 Van Vcss and his underlings', in piratically taking possession of the Steam Boat Winooski, and bv violence and brute force compelling Capt. Phillips to violate a written contract with the Steam-Boat Direc tors, to which Mr. Van Ness and his associates were parties. The circumstances arc these. Soon after the 4th of July, and long before the Tlattsburgh meeting was talked of, the whigs of this town notified Capt. Phillips-, and also one of the Directors that they should want to charter the Winooski for the celebration of tho 11th at Kcosovillc. Subscnucntlv the I'lotubuigii adilr was got up, and an application was made to another Director, who was ignorant of the first application, fur the same boat. As the time approached for decision, it was found that there was room for misunderstanding and difficulty. The whigs at once said " we'll none of it. Give the Lokics the boat ; and only pro vide us with a sure and safe conveyance, is all wc ask." It was accordingly arranged that the whigs were to havo the McDonough, an old watcr-log'd boat, and two sloops. If the wind was right, the slexips could rely upon their sails, and in fair weather the M'Donough might pad dle across in season ; but, lest thu winds and the waves might not thus combine in our favor, it was further stipulated by the Directors that the Winooski should take us iu tow, if we required it. Accordingly, in closing the contract with the otiicr party, this right was expressly reserved. To satisfy the reader on this point wc copy tho contract entire. Messrs. Ilaswell, Hollcnbcck. John Bradley and W. Lyman, propo.-e to tho Steam Boat Company, to transport from Burlington to Plattsburch. on the 11th of September, inst. a party on board the Winooski to rciurii irom saiu rianspurgn on board ot said boat or the line Boat.

John Biimh.ev, Sect., 3d, 1810. Wvtu Lvman. A copy of this contract was taken by each of tho parties, and tho original handed to Capt. Phillips, with instructions to sec it executed in good faith. When Friday niornitiir came, the very contingency tho contract was designed to provide for, had arisen. It was the roughest day we have had in three months. The wind blew a gale from the north, and tho waves liter ally ran mountains high. Accordingly ono of the Directors gave Capt. Phillips, seasonable notice that he would be required to take the vessels iu tow. When the two parties had got on board, Capt. P. moved out from tho wharf, and was making preparations to throw his lino on board tho other boats, when N. B. Ilaswell, one of the parties to the abovo agreement, step. ped forward and forbade him, denying that there was any such agreement ! Capt. Phillips paid no attention to this, but proceeded in the execu tion of his duty ; when Mr. Van Ness paraded his platoon of bullies in presence of Capt. Phil lips and gave them orders, to prevent by force, any attempt to hitch lo tho other vessels, nnd, paid he, "if Captain Phillips persists, I will take command of the boat my-olf." Then turning to the Captain, with the most violent and nicna cing imprecations, ho repeated tho threat ; and in reply to tho intimation of Capt. P, that his hands would not permit tho boat to bo wrested from him by violence, Mr. Van Ness replied "that ho had men enough on board to tako pos session of tho boat in defiance of the crew, and run it to Pittsburgh, and if thoy attempted to hitch to tho sloops, ho would do it V I- miilly says Capt. Phillip.", in his account of it to us "finding Mr. Van Ness to no in a groat rage " nnd determined to carry his threats into oxecu "tion, and in ounoquencQ ofthoso throats, and "tho great number ho declared wero nthi com "maudlin board tho boat, and fearing tho conso ''quencos which might ensue, provided they " should wrest tho vessel from my charge, I did "not tako tho nloopsin tow." Tho result is known and appreciated by at loast one Ihomand of tho honcbt yeomanry of Chittenden county By this flagitious act of violcnco wcro they com pelled lo buffet tho winds and waves for four hours in getting to Port Kent. Nor was this all. When tho Winooski arrived nt Port Kent, Johir Bradley, anothor of tho partieB to tho contract, informed our friends who wcro there iu waiting for us, with teams, that it wfia not probable wc should bo able to got there at all. Accordingly, most of them loft the ground, and when wc final ly arrived, near twelve o'clock, wo know not how many grey-headed soldiers and docripid old men had to foot it, four miles through the sand, toKecscvillc. Tho reader will by this time, wo presume, ask what Mr. Van Ness says about it. Mr. Van Ness at own all and more than we have charged : and rests his justification on tho authority of Joint Bradly,' who said that Mr. Follett had waved the right to tow I Only think, for a moment, of a man like Mr. Van Ness resorting to physical force to compel a steam boat Cap tain to violato a written contract, on a"' mere hearsay rcjmrl that one individual of tho board making it, had waved the right an act ho could not do. How insultingly ridiculous. But tho fact is, Mr. Follet loft the place soon after the contract was made and has had nothing to do with tho matter sinco ; and no man, who know Timothy Follett, believed one word of the state ment. Mr. F. has sinco been written to, and wc have scon his letter , in which ho unequivo cally denies any wnur or interference with the contract whatever. There is another circum stance however, which must satisfy any candid man as to the fact how Mr. Rradloy understood the contract himself. lie called on Cant. Phil- lips about six o'clock on the morning of the 11th, to ascertain which wharf the boat would stirt from, and among other tilings asked him if he teas going Intake the sloops in tow, to which Capt. P. replied that he should have to of course, according to contract, as tho wind was adverse and they could not sail. To this Mr. Bradley made no objection whatever, and left without even intimating that he had any other understand ing "f ,nc contract. Did Mr. Bradley understand the contract to he waived, and yet withhold the fact from Capt. Phillips, under these circum stances ? If so, for what motive 1 Did he then go on board, and after the boat was virtually in their possession, then for the first time broach the idea, and stand'sponscr for the high-handed measures that followed ! If ho did let him have the honor of it. If he. djd not, let him and Mr. Van Ness settle the matter between them. In the mean time, the public will hold them all responsible for this most unprecedented outrage uiion the rights of community. Wc have thus briefly stated the facts ns wc have gathered them, and which we can substan tiate by testimony. Thus much in explanation, was due to those who have suffered from this outrage. Thev will set their own cs-timate upon the transaction. We reserve our comments for another occasion, and dismiss the subject for the present with the single remark, that a man who would thus trifle with the rights of other.--, and on so shallow a pretence resort to such ilcsper ate measures, would need only the opportunity, ind a very slight temptation, to become a pirate anil a highwayman. Let no one sav wc speak ntempcratclv. Wc appeal to every candid man, whether the facts do not fully boar us out c know not what course the Stcam-hoat company will pursue. We take it for granted, however, that they will not tamely put up with this outrage upon Capt. Phillips, upon their boat, and upon the public. Mr. Van Ness has made himself liable iuponal daman-p.-, as well as to an indictment by the drand Jury, and why should he escape the consequences ! There is one court, most assuredly, before which he will be arraigned. COMPLIMENTARY! At a public table in Pittsburgh, on Saturday last, a gentleman from Albany was complimen ting Vermont for the promptness with which tho Green Mountain Bows turned out for the defence of Pittsburgh in 131-1 to which Mr. Van Ne replied, that much allowance should be made for that occasion. ".Many, no doubt," said he, " went to Pittsburgh on that cmerjoncv from "patriotic motives; hut more to see a fight "others from various motives ; and, had the bat "tic resulted differently, a largo proportion of " them would have jo'uwd the ewmy." O, said our informant, how I blushed and hung mv head in shome to hear my state thus villilied and abused by one who owed so much to its partial ity. But thus it is. Tho people of Vermont have showered their honors upon Mr Van Xcss, and he has presumed every thing upon their indulgence. But now, forsooth, because they refuse to be sold out to locofocoism, viper like, ho must turn and sting them to the heart. Not content that his state should be duly honored for her patriotic services on the occasion alluded to. he must needs hiand his neighbors with the most infamous designs ! Well may the people of Vermont, with good old Lear, exclaim, " How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is, To have a thankless child," "The tlrnt active part I overtook iu politic, said one of the Pittsburgh volunteers to us tho other day, " was to secure the election of a representative who would voto for Mr. Van Ness Senator; but how much reason I have to be thankful that my efforts wero unsuccessful.' MASS CONVENTION AT KKUSKVILLU, We designed to have participated iu the peo ple's celebration of the 11th September, at Keesovillo, on Friday, but, in common with nnarlv one thousand other (Ireen Mountain Boys, were prevented by tho piratical interfc rence of a desperado frcsii from the defiles of Spain, tho particulars of which wo have given iu another column. Our readers must there fore excuse us for not giving thont a particular account of this grand pageant.which we arc well assured was one of surpassing magnificence. We arrived only in season to witness the im menso multitude that surrounded the stand and filled the streets, to hear a portion of tho speak ing, and to appreciate the warm-hearted and overflowing hospitality of the pcuple of Keeso ville. This disapointincnt, wc regret, not so much for ourselves, ns for our friends across tho water, who, wo aro s.orry to say, wero put to eorious inconvenienco on our account. But they could appreciate tho cause, and it is needless to say thnt there is too much elasticity in the buoyant hopes of whigs at this day, to bo nnto rially depressed by casual disappointments.

September 7, 18-10. i Wc have taken the liberty of copvinr thu ebove advertisement from the last Burlinirton Sentinel, for the double purpose of extending the information, and at the same time correcting a typographical error in our notice of last week. The sale takes place on the 22d, instead of thu 20th inst. The place, it will be observed, how. ever, is omitted whether by dcs'im or accident wc are not authorised to say. We charitably presume tho latter. And, as it would be rather a natural inference that Burlington would be the spot selected for such a sale, whe have no doubt that those interested, may, by diligent oarcn ai tnc Jircakwatcr, the lake shore, tho square, or some other public place in town, find the particular location of this wanton sacrifice of government property ! In saying this, we wish to impute nothing improper to the Agent, a ho is 01 course acinio; under snecial insirimtiem from Washington. We understand, by the way, that a similar sale hab been ordered on the North River. The dredging machines, constructed at immenso expense by the government for the purpose of improving inn navigation of tiic river, are to be put up at auction for what they will bring. These machines are useless except for the pur pose for which they were constructed, and that purpose ran only be prosecuted by the govern ment, iim only object an milividual could have in purchasing them, would be the old iron or wood about them, or the probability of a .'prcufithn out of the government. IIenci they will bo sacrificed. These are mournful indications of tho condition of the nation, but they belong to the times-, and it is fitting that the people should ponder well these things. Tho motive for this procedure is doubtless threefold. The party in power arc satisfied that they will have to surrender it next March : hence they mean to realize all tiic money possible, by a sale of tho government properly, give the office holders a chance for spectiitinn, and throw every possible embarrassment in the way of tho coming administration. The property will sell for aiuerc trillo, but it will cost millions to re place it, and if theso works are resumed here after, it nuii-l Le at a correspondingly increased expense. It is the policy of the south to put an end to all c.j ciiditurcs for public iiurroMN ments at the nt tho north, and it is doubtless iu furtherance of this policy that the measure allu ded to has been adopted.
