But something more than a mere passing notico of this odious and abominable plot against the good natno and honorable standing of six of New York s worthiest and most respected sons, is re quired at our hands. Tlio infatnotts attempt, by means worthy of tho Spanish Inquisition, and witli instruments vilo enough for tho most un. principled employers nnd the most nefarious purpose, to impeach the integrity and blast for ever the character of such men as Mosns II' GntNNEM. of New York, deserves the execra tion ofevory honost man, and the severest cen sure of every independent press. Wo might havo looked for almost any thing from a despe rate party tottering on tho brink of overwhelm, itig defeat ; but for a plot so monstrous, so mcas. urctcss in its iniquity as this, wo wore indeed unprepared. A brief summary of tho principal features in this transaction is all that our limited space al lows. For months past the public has been pre pared by tho mysterious givings out of tho load ing Van Huron papers for a "last card" which was to win the Presidential game for Martin Van Huron. To Hf.njamin F. lluTLF.ii.comtnon rumor had assigned the keeping of this infalli ble restorative of the party's waning strength j and to his judgement was confided tho selection of the moment when the production of the "last card" would bo attended with the most decided and ardently desired success. On Friday morning last, Mr. Benjamin F. Butler played this "last card" in the shape of an alTidavit.itsolf based upon hearsay of one Jonathan D. Ste venson, charging the Whig party with having, in tli3 election of 18.13, imported a lare e num. ber of voters from Philadelphia, and naming Messrs. Grinnell, Bowon, Blatchford, Draper and Wctmorc, as the managers of this ichoh. sale Jraud. Accompanying this principal piece, were sev eral others, unimportant in themselves, but in. troduccd to give the propor coloring and consis- tency to tho talc. On the very morning of these publications in Xew Yorl; tlie Boston Post, and Day State Democrat, issued extras, giving a sy nopsis of this "startling dcvolopemont," and, on the authority of New York correspondents, as sorting D-that Gorcnwr Setcard had been ar reted, and u-as then on trial before the Police Ctiurt for participation in these frauds, and that Moses II. Grinnell and R. C. Wetmorc, to es cape similar treatment, had fled from Ihe city. These extras wero doubtless distributed on the wings of the wind, and ere this it is not unlikely that the for. of yew I'ork has been posted all over A'eic England as a common felon, and Messrs. Grinneli, and Wf.tjiorf. held up to public scorn as fugitives from justice! To the South and West too, nay, in all directions, this same abominable lie, magnified more and more as it passed from hand to hand, has been indus triously circulated, and upon this "last card" an expedient so worthy of their system of political warfare the partisans of Van Burcn relied to re-elect their Chief. But for once Villainy lias over-reached it self ! Tho individuals implicated by this affi davit of Mr. J. D. Stevenson, havo had time to spread before tho public their unqualified con tradiction, wirtifc under oath, of the whole story Lach ono of them has put on record his affidavit that the charge is false and unfounded in each and every particular. And (flcntworth, the por- eo:i whose admissions make up the sum and sub stance of Stevenson's affidavit, has himself sworn O' that B. F. Butler, U. . District At- lorn:y, and Jesse Hoy', U. S. Collector, offered to dtvtde their "last cent or last crust" with him, (Glentworth) if he would come forward and make proof of these disclosures! Where shall we look for a refutation more complete or con clusive than these affidavits furnish to the whole fabrication 1 And what measure of indignation is too large for those who in thoirdespcrate en deavorsto retain tho (power they have so long and so grossly abused, have engaged in a con- piracy so wanton and wicked as this ! But we must pause, reluctantly indeed, to-day, in the hope of resuming the subject to-morrow. Mean while wc invite every honest and impartial man to read and scrutinize tho different statements and affidavits wc this day publish. TO TUB PUBLIC. The statement entbrnninrr ehnrrrea nn.tnd, il.A ...1. scribcrs, published in the .Standard ami other paper: of this mornim;, has just been seen bv us. A regard for our own characters demands this prompt, full and imnualified denial of the nwn. nt. templed to be imputed lo us, of having at any time uiiijiiiiyuu j uiiics ii. uicuiwonn, or any oilier persons in iricuru iiiuivuiuais irom rnuaueiptiia lo vote at the elections in this State. The fact that ncrsons wero broimbi tn th!a nm the fall of 1SI3, to detect lraudulent voters wdio were intended to bo used by the opposite party, has never ueen ueiiieu, anil was wen Known and publicly avow' cd at the time. This denial will be sufficient for the present to, put uiivw, nu nun uunrges iiiqimcti io us. in the meantime, an appeal will be made to the tri Initials of justice, to cxnose nnd niiniili ilm ,,r,r;.w.; pled individuals who have engaged in n conspiracy, for malicious and political purpose, to affect our cha racter.

I approved of the purpose. I told him I would turn llic mailer over in my mind, and if he would cnll tho the next morning I would do nil in my power to assist him. I would determine who could lu st promote this object. Nothing more passed at that lime on Ihe sub ject, nnd iho gentlemen then retired.

I was at tho 3th and Pth wards, nnd oth er wards, nnd the inspcclors of the election in these wards knew what wc were doing there, and when any of the Philadelphia Administration men came to nny of the wards wdiere vvo were, they frequently recog nized us, and wo believe that wc were often the means of preventing their voting.

BASE CONSPIRACY EXPOSED- ATTEMPT TO IMPLICATE GOVERNOR SEWARD. Tho office holders in Now York have been for sometime plotting a deep-laid scheme, which they designed to bring suddenly into operation on tho eve of the Presidential election. This they have denominated, in significant phrase, their last cakd. The plan has been hastened into excution on account of tho recent startling developments of loco foeo fraud.--, and tho gam blers havo now showed the strength of their hand. A number of men in New York have come beforothe public witli imposing affidavits profes sing to make known an extensive fraud perpc. trated by a company of Whigs in the Fall of 1SUS, in causing a large number of men to bo taken from Philadelphia to Now York for the purpose of voting illegally there. Jesse Iloyt, tho Collector of tho port of New- York, John V. Edmonds, a violent partizan of tho administration, and Houjamin V. Hutlor, tho U, S, District Attorney for Now York, have set on foot an examination be-fore tho recorder and Justice Matsell, and have brought forward as witnesses', John 1). Htovcnson, formerly tobacco inspector, James 1!. (iluntworth, now holding that office, and several othors. The persons charged with planning and executing tho scheme of fraud ulent voting in IsiH, aro John Swift, Mayor of Philadelphia, and llola Uadgor, (Jenrgo Riston and others of that city; and Moses II. (irinnol, member of Congress from Now York ; and R. M. Ulatcliford, Jiunos Howonnud Simoon Draper, Jr., of tho latter city. Stovoiison wont to Phi ladolphia about two wooks Bince, taking the name of Jarvis in some, companion, and now as. ports under oath, that Messrs, Swift, lladgor nnd others ngrood to aid in procuring frninllont voters tu go to Now Yorl; this fall, as in 1WIS. Hut tho affidavits will tdiow what aro tltochargos to which thoy form a direct and full reply. Nothing is moro notorious, (says tho Eve. ning Journal,) than tho fact that tho Tammany party has for many years carried tho city of Now York by fraudulent and illegal voting, The Whig parly, relying on tho patriotism and integ rity of their cause, was content to use only thff weapons of reason and argument. Hut tlicss wero found unavailing. Tho frauds of Loco Focoismgavo them continued succession. In 18I3S thoro were serious collisions in Tammany Hall. A portion of tho Jackson men broke off and joined the Whigs. Thos men brought with them a knowledge of tho tactics of Tammany Hall, and in tho then approaching conflict turned their weapons against their former associates. "Illegal voters had boon imported by the Vait Huron party at every contested Election. H was known that hundreds of thorn were to como to tho rctcuc of Iico Fucoism in IBIiS. To fortify themselves against these hordes, tho- Wings took precautionary measures to identify and expose thent. For this purpose Agentu wcroabroad. Among tlieso was James B. Glent worth, who, while in Philadolnhia. instead of adhering to his instructions, says that ho entered into arrangements to procure illciral-voters him self. When this information came to the knowl edge of the gentlemen whom Uutlor, Edmonds, it Co, seek to implicate, tho following Lettter written by the Hon. M. II. CniNsr.i.i., with the sanction of Messrs. Ui.ATciironn, Dr.Arcr., Uow- r.N, and Wr.TMonn, was promptly despatched to Glentworth, who was then in Philadelphia : "Xew onu, Oct. 31st, 1833. "Dear Sir Two of vour letters, u-rineii vir.i.. have found their way to this city ; the project whiclt you laid out is not wholly understood by your friends here. The position in which thev consider themselves placed, H easily summed up, and their only fear is that you may have misunderstood ihcir motives and de sires. If you have made any arrangement which in any way tend to any thing beyond a general supervis ion of the polls for the purpo-e of detecting and pre venting illegal voting, you must at once unequivocally abandon it, and look to thorn for anv expenses which your precipitate sicps may nave occasioned. Wc val uo the cause as highly as anv nortion of our fellnw citizens value it, but we are determined not to enter in to any sort ol arrangement which, under any circum stances, could be construed into n bargain for foreign uies. iiu inereiore lane tne earnest anu most elec tive mode of saying to VOU thnt. Willi,' vn nrn rnmlv irk submit to the expense which you have incurred in your preliminary arrangement, we will not counte nance any system which can in any way encourage iue iiuport.uion ui voters. "Wo knovvyourdesiies, and shall bj willing tomett your wishrs, provided they are based upon the simpla point of protecting the rigbls of ihe honest voters, which we deem your only hope or expectation. in liaste, .VI. u. GIUMST.LL." "Here is a triumphant refutation of the foul charge against tlieso gentlemen. Whatever Glentworth did or intended to do, hero is conclu sive evidence that the design of bringing illegal voters to New i ork was instantly discounten anced and forbidden by Messrs. Gr.iNNr.Lt, 15i.ATcnronr, Dr.Arnn, Rowkn and Wr.TMoitF, who stand entirely vindicated from the vile and wicked attempt of the conspirators. These gentlemen were selected as the victims of this "infernal machine" on account of their high standing as citizens and of their zeal, devotion and efficiency in the Whig cause. Thoy are honorable elevated, disinterested men, who, seeking no office and with no sordid purposes of their own to serve, gave themselves up to the country. Such men always oxort a tremendous influence. They wore a terror to Van Rurcn ism, and hence the "black and midnight" con spiracy to destroy them. Tlut it has failed sig nally failed, and will now "return to plague tiio inventors." "There is equal falsehood and profligacy in charging the Whig party with frauds upon the Elective Franchise. We have been fighting up against an unscrupulous party whose majority was perpetuated for years by means of the gros sest frauds. In the city of New York the lead ing measure of the Whig party, for eight years, was a Registry Law, the only object and design ot winch was to protect the Rights of Legal Vo ters and to prevent Illegal Voting. That lar. the moment wo obtained a Whig ascendancy in the Legislature, was passed, against the fiercest opposition of Van Uuranism. And now, while Loco Focoism is railing iti-elf hoarse with char ges of fraud against Whigs, the Secretary of State has recommended to all Inspectors of Elec tions a plan to protect the Ballot-IJo.xcs from Fraud and Corruption. Those charges of Fraud como from men who aro notoriously corrupt themselves, and who arc now raising a cry under cover of which thry hope to consummate their own frauds in the approaching conflict. "Rut let us return to the Conspiracy, which was, it seems, to have boon finally consummated at the house of the Collector, Mr. Jesse Ilnvt. There Rutler, Iloyt, Edmonds, Stevenson and Glentworth assembled. Anifthore, too, Glent worth was expected to crown the Plot by impli cating Gov Seward. Rut for somo unexplained reason that scene in the drama is cut out. . Glentworth failed to meet their expectations in this respect, as will ho seen by the following affidavit : New York, ss. James R. Glentworth of the city of Xew York, being duly sworn, saith that within tho List thirty days at ditletent times and places in the city of Xew X. ork, he has been applied to, bv Jona than 1). Stevenson, ISenj. F. Rutler, U. S. 'District Attorney, Jesse Hoy!, collector, nnd John W. Ed nionds, to uiuke statements that should implicate Got Seward, and the leading friends of the Governor in Xew York, in a charge of having countenanced frauds at the election in l'W. I hat a few days ago, deponent was induced hy mid .Stevenson, to go the house of said H. F. Ilutler, at the door of which, Air. Edmonds joined us, and we went together lo the house of said Jesse IIovl, which we entered nnd found Air. Iloyt at home. 'Presently we were joined by Air. Hutlir for a few minutes nothing was said, when Air. Edmonds remarked "wchad bet ter proceed lo business." Thereupon Air. Huller said Air. Sicvenson had lalcly made important disclosures to him, afh cling the whig party, and if deponent would conic forward and mako the necessary proof, great good would follow from it. that deponent would lakea high stand that deponent had been denounced by the wings as a loco foeo, and had nothing to expect from that parly, but had every thing to expect from tho other party that deponen t would cam the lasting gratitude of 'the country; for his own part, ho would divide his Inst cent, or'lmi crust with deponent. Thereupon, Air. Hovt said he would ilo the same. And deponent further saith, that the said Stevenson repeatedly assured deponent, that if he would lake a stand against the wings, tho administration partT would be under the greatest obligations to iue, that 'V could have any o&ec, or any money, and especially that Ah. Van llurin would do any thing for mc nnd that lie, Stevenson, would go to Washington about it but that was unnecessary, as Air. Rutler and Air. Edl munds, who were the confidential friends of the i'rea-. idem, could and would cllictit.. On another nc canon, Slevenson, to operate i-ron this deponent, said Ah. Rutler would give a thousand" dollars, and Air. lloyl the same, Inwards paying n . i! i.iiu iii-iii,iiiii "t.uiisniii-. i nr., msi aun(jny morn mi; Air. Edmonds wrote a note loih ponenl requesting him to call nl r.dunind' s house, and denonent upon icceiving the note went there, when Edmonds said, well, 1 iindetstand vm have concluded not to be of nny servieo lo us, To which di ponenl replied ihat ho hail so determined. Wheii-iipnii said Edmonds then threatened that deponent would be pros-cental nnd deponent further cailh dial Slevenson Paul he would compil the Governor to rc-appomt me to the ofliee of inspector Thai he, Slevenson, would meet Air.
