Justice though slow is sure ; and the man win) lias, for a number of yearc, libelled our country its laws, institutions and credit, and slandered" private character in every shape with impunity, is atwutto have "lite poisoned chalice commended to h own lips." I'oo much praise cannot ho awarded to thoso wlin had tho moral courage to arrest tho course of thiH slanderer, and give him distinctly to un derstand that wo live in a country of laws, which claim from him, in common with every stranger landing on our shores, respect and oho diencc. During the last summer, such was tho libel lous cnuiM! of the Herald towards every ono it selected for opposition such the indiscriminate abuse of private charactor.and such the extent of its islanders and general profanity, that near ly mo wnoio rross ot iNow rork bum torin in simultaneous and indiirnant donuiication of tho character of that paper and its editor. Ucnnott almost sunk under it. Several of the journal wcro exceedingly violent and personal, which in a measure ininaircd the rrood thov were rcn- iluring to the community ; others slackened .their tire, irom a hope that the lesson would prove salutary, and indeed, for some time the Herald was conducted in a more reputable manner. Human nature, however, cannot 10112 wear dis- gui-c, "the Ethiopoan cannot change his skin, and the Herald soon fell into its former low and vituperative course, and gradually to the depths of blackguardism and abuse, in which it is now wallowing. The presses which ceased in their attacks on the Herald, gave as a reason that Dennett was too low, loo scurrilous, too debased in his pub lic career, lor turthcr notice. Una was all wrong it was the error which gave the man boldness lo go on and libel, lie was pleased beyond measure when the press icfused to" no tice him it was all he required wanted only a fair, unobstructed field, that ho might prey on i ne wnoio community, unchecked and tinpun Uhcel, bill he never could stand the united do n it licit ion of the press; ho quailed and mink undent. It was an error on another account No man in his position should ho uttorlv aban. doncd, or considered ton low for public notice lie is a man, a bad one it is true, but still a nun, ami should not have been as it were thrust out of the pale of civilized community. Thin de scried, ho had no motive left to become decent, or to reform , he was like the Drig.ind, who, having no friend on earth but his rule, levies contributions on every passenger. Finding hinvclf uiminlc&tcd in this peaceable community, cither by personal violence, by the censure ol tho press, or ly the slrong arm of the law, ho roved about under Ins black Hag, assail ing (im eminent, Congress, men in high stations men in business, public institutions, the charac terand credit of tho nation, religion, private reputation, female character, institutions, laws, coiirts.jndges, and every subject, every man, every place or thing, at which he could level his halts, it ih tunc such a career should mm some check, and as a Coroner's inquest has not yet boon held over him, wo will now see what elli;ct the miid inlltiencu of tho law will have. Dennett, in this miserable course, ii the os tonsihlu man, yet it is proper to say that a per son by tho name of Attree, who come to this country, as it is alleged, under tho name of I'e.l. .'is, is the prii c pal concoctcr of most of the slanderous attacks appearing in the Herald. Donuott lias served an apprenticeship to Atttco. Attrco gave him lessons how to assail character assail credit, and i Fsatl institutions, and mike money out of llio operation. 7'ne Lnmhn Mur nl llcfurm Society know Attree well, and know his capacity in that way. He has great exper ience and art in designing, great industry and chill in executing, and Dennett has not only piovcd an apt .-cbedar, hut has roped a plean. tilii! harvest through his instructions. H'o find him daily speaking o! the "lying, lazy, stock jobbing, bankrupt Wall st. press," and point ingtothe Iluiahl as a. proof of what talent and enterprise can elli'd. Hois daily boasting of his circulation and the tnony lie is making by the Herald. Ho is rich he owns some ?r(),(KK) in city stocks, besides the real etalo .vhcro h.s office and printing apparatus aro situated; but he Ins not made a .single dollar, Icsithnatclu. bv the Herald as we shall piucecd to tliow. lie receives from his new.-buvsonn cont ami a half for each copy of the llera'pl. The blank; sheet of paper on which the Herald is printed, costs one cent leavirg him hut a half cont to pay tho expense of publication throughout that is to say, compositors, press work, clerk lure, cditori-, loporters, rout, fuel, etc. cic. &c, amounting tei at least eight hundred orotic thousand dollars per week adveilising, the true source of profit, being less in tho Herald than Stupor day. Tho Weekly Herald pro bably affords him some profit. f I id circulation in this city is limited ; in tho largo cities anil towns throughout the Union, ho distributes a considerable number ; but if his daily circulation was 100,001), that would not increase his profits. 7'he Httn, which circulates live times the num. her ofthe Herald, and i at onlyjabout two-thirds the expense, lesui money, as vvo tiii-jk, by its circulation ; but coins money by its advertise inentr. tho very thing the Herald has not and cannot obtain How then has Dennett, who for fifteen years, was so dull as never to earn more than ten do!, lars per week liow has he contrived, while making nothing by his paper, to become so ricli ! lie aiwer, by levying Di.ack .Mail ! ! The Hcralel dragged heavily along for some time alter it was established. It was losing ground daily at ono cent, and Dennett finally tried the experiment of two cents, by which he lost half his circulation, without increasing his advertising patronage. The murder of Klleii Jewettopeiicel the first avenue to the blurk mail bystem. Of this murder and the coroner's inquest, tho examination of Ilusina Towusoml, and tho trial of Uobinson, tho most that couhl have been made by the llnglish peniiy.a-iner. was made in tho shape of continued and excititi" rumors an J reports. On tho night of this imx. der, it was the misfortune of a gentleman of character and foituno in this city to lodge in the hou-oof KosinaTownseiie!, and his greater misfortune that the fact came to tho knmvlodgo of Dennett. Ho fastened upon this gentleman, pursued hint like a liond, it is said bled him to the amount 810,000, ami finally pursued him to Ins death, winch occurred shortly after that af. fair. This was the first capital of any impor lancd acquired by tho black mail system, and it was determined lo carry that system out ex. tcnshely. Tho next heavy operation was in the panic of .m. ii win oo rccoiiecieu mat lie puhlibhcd a list of insohentjirmf, including in that list ono third of houses, not insolvent, hut supposed to bo tottering. Vlio linns called on Dennett and remonstrated with him, representing the ruin ho was bringing upon them, anel arranged with him to contradict the rumor of their iticolvonhv on the next day, which ho did those, wo presume, paying tne iiignt-si, ami evineniiy tho weakest, were put forih as possessing undoubted means ami credit. Hisnoxt experiment was announ cing his intention to publish a list of salient houses in the city of New Vork. This alarmed almost every firm each apprehending that if noiiticimieil in the list, tho liouto woulel bo docii.ed insnlcevt, either at homo or abroad Large sums, it is supposed and believed, were mm uy persons to navo their nouses inciutieti III tho solvent list. Kinall canitalist doinrr a heavy business, anxious to preserve thoir credit, wcro wining id cmno under the black mail uys. teiiioi mo iieiuiei , unit uiih experiment, it is believed, realised many thousand dollars. For a timo the black mail was lovied in small sums from families or individuals, ladies of char, actor and timidity, vv ho preferred paying a dou. cuer rather than have their names disgraced by appearing in tho Herald. No public character arrived in our city painter, actor, poet, musi cian, danseuse, dentist, etc., depending upon pub lie patronage for support, who was not informed that his or her first Hop was to conciliate Den nett. This system of wholesale robbery was submitted to by public individuals, or men in IriKinebs, rather than hazard the nbitsu of Don r. . 1 , s yrrr pi ndvmr, Attree. Decently ho has greatly extended lils scale politics. Wo havo soon brother afraid to speak I convention that framed tho constitution, What of operations, and by extra exertions at a heavy to brother. Wo have soon (and in tho llich. ' was the fact? Was Congress authorized to oxponso tunning expresses and employing mond Ilnquircr itself) removal from oll'icc justL I ""lio a bank 1 aro thu powers given to them 1 shoals of renorlcrs he has imparted rrroatcr in- flod nn tlm n,mw1 ,,r I,1.I tntinn r nr.nn Co to the ioumal nfthn convention ousht wn Icrestto the Herald in early news, copious for oign extracts, congressional tcporlr, and most important of all, by tho employment of a person of capacity to make up articles on tho money tuarKot, and here is thosocrot of a now and most profitable part of tho "stand and dclner" system Dennett, it is known, is opposed to a Dank of tho United Slates, not from psinciple, because that ir. an article ho docs not deal in but from being paid by various institutions: and specific interests opposed lo the creation ol a isational Dank, and his money article is shaped uniformly anil adapted to carry out his sordid views. It is supposed that Dennett is receiving an nual contributions, to a heavy amount, from banks and associations in this state and various states throughout the Union, in order that their credit mav not bo impaired nor their interests jeoparded, by being gazetted in the Herald as concerns lo bo watched or guarded against bv the public. Wo have thus tho secret of his wealth. Ho uses tho Herald, as wo havo al ready said, as tho Brigand uses his rillu cleans it carefully, loads it cautiously, "poises it over a rock to select his victim, and brings down the unwary passenger wiih corlainty. Ho lives by depredating upon the community, and growing arrogant on his ill-gotten wealth, ho abuses and vilifies every thing that stands in his way. Our trade, our national credit and national name, as wcllasdoniosticconcornsand things held sacred from the public eye, are daily, openly, shame fully tho subjects of infamous remark in the coliiinns.of tho Herald. Tho only redeeming circumstance and con eolation in all this succession of wrongs, is in the lact that neither Dennett nor Attree aro Ame ricans our country has not tho disgrace of having given them birth Tho immediate cause of Dennett's indictment by the grand litrv wTas for publishing false re ports ol the proceedings of tho Cottrtof Sessions, and unmeasured abuso of Judges I.vnch and Xoah, besides endeavoring to hold up the court and jury to public contempt, and to bring the ad ministration of justice into disrepute. Judge Lynch, a gentleman of education and character, of mild and conciliatory manners, devoted to the discharge of his public duties, and sustaining his position with ability and dignity, was every way undeserving of these attacks. "Judge Noah was not initio f,j sensitive to such outbreaks ho know Dennett well, and kicked him out of court without any ceremony. ioah is the very last personage in this community that Dennett can commit an outrage unoii with iinnutiilv. Justice in some shape, lightas it may be, will now overtake the libeller, and. if followed un firmly whenever a proper occasion may present itsoll, Dennett and Attree will bo taught to Know that they live m a country of laws. Had they practised the same tricks on the courts of iiieirown countries, iionneit would have boon clapped in the Tolbooth and Attree in the 0!e ll.ii ley, forthwith. Dennett treats the matter lightly publishes inu ni'iicimcuip, mo record ol ins own shanio and promises himself much sport in the result He tiny hml himself mistaken. It is fearful odds lor a single mm lounko war on the bench the bar, tho laws, and tho administration of jtistico; to stand up, without warrant or cause, against indictments, trials, orisons, bolts and bars. Cobb'jtt, tho most powerful writer of tho age in vvnicii nc liven, made similar attacks on Judge .McKrcn, of Pennsylvania. He ridiculed htm in every way ; charged him with not being rbie to hold court in consequence of his wile giving him a black eve with a tin sauce pan, ami made other shameful assaults upon him. The Judge, lonslelering these as repeated outrages uu inu ni ijc-iy oi tne people, whose minister he was, took C'obbott in hand in civil and criminal suits, and finally drove him out of the country ; such may be Dennett's fate, sooner or later. A'. 1". Vimes and Star. We copy the following article at length from tho National Intelligencer. Wo could do no less lo do it justice, nnd it is so trium phant a vindication of the course of the Ad ministration, and such complete refutation of the clamorous and grossly inconsistent charges of the Tory prints, that wo feel in a manner compelled to give it a place. Till: ADMINISTRATION AND THE OPPOSITION. From the follow ing naragranh. which wn find transferred to the columns of ihe Ilichinond r.ti. epiiter from a kindred print, and from other pub hcations of like import in that and other papers, we find that the cry of I' is now re- iicei upon, uy inoso whom the People have re jectetl, as an argument against the present Re- puuncau ivouiinisiraiioii ol the lioveriimcnt : "TjIK fJt'II.LOTINE SI ILL STItr.AMS WITH l)i.o ii ! We learn that C. Clinton Vcazov, a relation of Kx-Govornor Veazev, of calcula'titi" memory, John Showacre, and' Joseph Owoif, formerly keeper of tho Penitentiary, have been appointed Inspectors of Customs of Dalliiuore. All theso are active partisans ; thus 'falsifying the record' of the Proclamation recently issued by the immaculate Dan 'Oil with their heads' is the command, and the executioner perforins the office !" lialtimnre Argus. i ould not such language as this, in tho mouth of one ofthe spoils-nicn, be the sublime of impudence! Is not its repetition, by tho Kn qttiror, with full knowledge of its injustice and inapplicability, a gross impoMiian upon the con. fideiiice and easy faith of its readers 1 "The guil lotine streams with blood !" savs the Argus. "7'ho guillotine streams with fdood !" eclioes the lpiircr. Now what aro the facts which havo provokeil this extravagantly figurative exclamation- this appalling and horrid screech ! Why, three individuals have been appointed Inspectors of tho Customs for tho port of Dalti inore, one of whom is a relation of ox-Governor Veazcy, and, being related to a Governor, is wisely deemed to ho unfit to inspect tho customs; and another of vv horn, having been Keener of tho Penitentiary, is of courso disqualified lor guartU ing the rev enuo from frauds by those who do serve to ho tewinisuf that uselul establishment. Such is the implication of the paragraph, if it have any meaning at all. It is not pretended, the reader will perceive, that the persons who havo been superseded by these appointments ought not to have been Euporsedeel, and still less that they had not been "active partisans," or that they had not earned inspectors' wages by inspecting something else besides "the customs," It is notorinur, perfectly notorious, that per sons have been employee! as custom-house offi cers atall tho largo ports by the late Adniinifctral iiou, nun pam us huku, whoso oniy w ru per formed for thoir hiro was party work. To such an extent has this been carried, that there have been cafes of persons paid as cutom.housc offi cers, under one name or other, who never oven made a visit lo the custom-house tho wholo year rounn, aim nave ueou uiscovercii uy moir near est neighbors to bo pensioners upon the Public only by the fortuitous publication of tho I,it of Inspectors, cv.o. attached to tho Lustom-housc. M'hcthcr the persons removed from inspec torships at Diltimoro were of this class, or for what cause they were removed, wo know not. Having full roiilidcuco in tho discretion of tho collector of tho port of Dallimorc, wo havo not tho least eloubt that it was forifooj cause. Hut for whatever causo they wpfo removed, with what grace could tho friends of the lato Admi nistration raise tho huo and cry of Proscription upon the occasion of removals from office, wero they ten times as many as they havo been, (ay, ten times ten,) and all without any other causo than tho pleasure of tho ruling power! H'o do not, and never can, approve of Proscription, in tho true sense of tho term ; in the sense in which it existed, as a system, and an effectual feature ofthe administration of tho Government, during tho last twelve years, at ono period mora ami at another less tyrannically, but always moto or less. Wo have seen it prevail to such an ex tent within the circle of this city, (and it pre vailed not less elsewhere,) that persons cither holding or seeking public employment diil not dnri1 lo ho'd converse, and scarcel) tnovchange (nlutrftMW, In nub'tc with prrnms of opposif tlio ground ol b ood re ation ol a person removed tosotno other person who was obnox ious io mo pany in power. vo navo seen in this very city private individuals proscribed in uieir vocations oi industry, sucn as uuicncrs, uaKers, oui'iters, blacksmiths, eVc. Willi such anobdurato pertinacity of purpose and practice that they have been obliged to abandon the city and fly to distant lands, whore opinion was yet free, lo earn hiead for their support.

This, it aimoars to us. is no more than what common seuso and ordinary prudence require oi every man in private hie in tho ma, nagemoni oi ins anairs. io man, lor exam- pic, coming to tlio head of a lauded estate. of aunuufactory, of a mercantile house, or the command of a ship, would retain in authority under him an overseer, a foreman, a cashier. or a mate, (and so alsoof inferior employments,) in wnntu no nan no coiilidcncc, or whom ho knew or found to ho entirely incompetent or no glectful. To this o.xtent, and no further, do wo adviso and justify removals from office. 7 his limit, it is very certain, has not been transcended by the present Administration, hut, on the con. trary, the Administration lias, in this particular. thus far fallen short of tho expectations of many oi us anient supporters. nut with vvhat grace, we repeat with what lace, wo might say do the IriomU ot the Jack son and Van Duren dynasties attotnnt to raise? : clamor now, because ofthe removals from office wero they as many as they aro few, that have been made by the present Administration ! At vvhat period of either ofthe two nreceelinir Ad ministrations lias any one been allowed to re- tain office under them who was known or even suspected to be opposed to them ! At what moment lias either ol those Administrations dis played in any digree the Fnirit of toleration !

Lot incontcstible facts answer that question : within alow months ol the first year ol the Jackson Administration, persons were removed, in ninotv-ninc cases out ol a hundred, merely on account of thoir unlit i cal sentiments, from a host of offices, of which the following is but apartial enumeration : lhat is to say FirrncN .Ministers Plenipotentiary, Charge d'All'aires, and Secretaries of Legation. mxE .Marshals and iiftecn United States Attorneys.

Desitles these direct removals from oflico hv the Fxecutivc, there was a host of removals of such per.sons as held office bv secondary an poinlments, such as clerks, insuectors. etc. 'in the Custoin.iioiisc.whoni we have no moans of numbering. We have a statement before us, however, which may afliu d llio reader some idea of the extent of those removals. In the Cus-tom-house at Huston alone, out of fiftv-eight persons employed in different capacities forty were removed ! In all, thsre wero lemoveel from office, of all grades of civil officers, within the first year of the Jackson Administration, .MORK THAN 7'WO THOUSAND MEN. How misplaced and ill -timed, after this exhib it, must not the wailing of tho Lnqtiiter, over the three inspectors whom it has been thought expedient to remove at tho Daltnnoro Custom, appear to every unprejudiced reader ! Correspondence of the Times and Star. Washington, July ill), IS 11. The morning hour in tlto Senate was oc cupied by Sir.

Mr. Miingtim's amendment to the resolu tion calling upon tho President to report nil removals, slating cause, &C. from IS-'!) to date, Wits carried, and then the resolution passed. Now I can inform these gentlemen who cling with such desperate grasp to office, that tho President will report at tho next session of Congress a black list that will as- lound tlio nation. After tlio expiration of tlio hour, tho Senate resumrd tlio discussion of tho Dank hill. Mr. Smith, of Conncticut, tlio "man in tlio corner," rose and addressed the Senate in opposition to tho bill. It was a constitutional argument. The following is an extract verbatim. I "nothing extenu ate nor sot down aught in malice.". Mn. President : I rise to give my views in regard to this question and I havo not said any. thing on this great question. Tho legislature ofConneticut passeil a resolution instructing me tei vote for this Dank. I believe this a dem ocratic body, and not, as some contend, an aris. tocratic hotly.

I shall, Mr. Pres'ulont, advert to tho various modes by which tho friends ofthe bill hope to carry it, ami it sonaiors will givo mo thoir attention, 1 think I will satisfy them rs to the fallacy of their arguments. Men of spa- cious minds, ahoin 1 ahem 1 groat men who differ with mo on tins subject, have contended that like Mr. McDulfic, who was a great man, that coining inotiov was to statnn paper 1 Now is it ! if : i , '.' i.....i:..i. i ii ici any man who unui rsoiinis i.unii mi him toll us what he Inuisell holiovcs is uio lan guage of tho constitution.

Hero tlin Hon. Senator apologised lo tlio Senate for consuming tlioir time, when Mr. Denton exclaimed, "Take vour time ! take your time ! There is no hurry !" He ro sumetl I lis speech, and I left tho Senate. Tlio House passed the Fortification bill by a largo majority (ayes 148, noes CG) and then adjourned.

Proscription is now the war cry of the Tory papers, throughout tho Union. At ov ory now appointment wo hear the plaintive voire of some long faced Locofoco bewailin in most piteous tones, the sad falo of hi brother. Ono would suppose from the man ncr in which incv wiiinc ami scout at every removal from and appointment to oflico, by tlio present Administration, that the Tories wcro a most tolerant paity ; that they abhor red proscription ; that thoy never did such thing in nil their lives as to remove a politi cal opponent, but that on the contrary, they would have been shocked most avvlully at any such uiiparalcled proceeding. Dut what arc tho facts ? Who introduced the policy of "proscription" into our national poliics ? Let llio Washington Globe, foimcrly the organ of Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Kiircn, and now tlio leading Tory paper of tho Union answer these questions. From the Globe of 3Iny2G, 1S'29. "The ehamies that it has been found necessary to make in public olliccs have given the Coalition ptiuts nn opportunity to discharge tome venom, and cry out c. I I tr.i, .

When ihe people decided lhat there should be a chance, lhev ninmt lion it should bo thorough anil comj'litc ; nor did ibey eve r contemplate, while they removed thepnnciplo olltnd i rs from ihcir olaci's of trust, that confidence should be continual to those who, thoimh less in the public eye, bail been first to step out of their places to oppose the pub ic voice, and turn the very power an I mllu ence derived from ihe situations held from thupc pie against lliem and the ir elcarcst wishes. Itis noariru inent that tbeso persons aro i isiiinificant, and that, therefore, thev should bo overlooked.

On tho Gth ol tho following March, the Globe said : "Wc wonder if the editors can bo serious inex pectin;; ibe President to be able to work lhat rlKcicnt reform which llio people look for at his hinds, if ho retains in ofl'ice', to the exclusion of his friends and advocates oi retorni, loose political enemies, lauiuiarue.,, iu inu abuse nnd corruption of llio precedun administration?" In tho Globe ofthe Gth of January, 1829, may be found he following : "IrTUEIlC EC ANY MAN IS OFnCK WHO WOVID DTABVE IF Tl nNKI) OCT, IT IS AT ONCE AN AnOCMKST ron tits removal.

Such was tho language of tho Washingt jii Globo in 1829. Perhaps, however, it may urged by those who join in tho senseless clamor against the present Administration, that tho acts and doctrines of their own party, when in the ze nith of its power, wero in hard party times, and therefore ought not to ho held up to them reproachfully as proving against them a general rule of action. Allow them the ben efit of this plea, the only ono behind which they can possibly tako refuge from tho charge of gross hypocrisy or inconsistency, and let us sec to what extent it will be of any advan tage to them. Let us coino down to tho Ad ministration of Mr. Van Karen. What has been the doctrine avowed by that Adminis (ration, when it felt soinu confidence in re taining its power for a second term of four years, and was not afraid to avow its senti ments I Wo quoto from tlio rccognizeerofii cial paper the following passage, being tho only one that wo havo timo to select : 1'rom ihe filobo of October 1S33. "Tho opinion of Washington, that to employ in hiph offices men opposedto the (lorernmen!x is 'politi. oil suicide,' is eminently jist. An Administration which practises this principle finds itself, as it were in a bosllecnuip. Those whft nre to carry out iis measures throw every obstacle in the way of ilu ir ex ecution.

Who has forgotten, who ever can forget the cruel proscription of tho last Iwi-lvo years ? 1 ho axo is still red with tlio blood of thoir victims. No circumstances, however well calculated to nxcito our sym pathy, no services lo tho country, however Mutable they might havo been, neither the venerable hairs of age. nor tho buoyant hopes of youth, nor the faithful services of tho long-tried officer, nor tlio scats of the br avo soldier weighed ono feather against tho corrupt and hungry partisans of Jackson und Viiu Huron. Ono universal sween, ono ndislinguishing blow was levelled against them all withnreniorsoloss spiritof revenge un appetite that could not bo appeased. The patriot H.utttisoN was tho first victim to bo immolated and liic blood of thousands equally innocent with him, soon sprinkled the sanio iltar on which he was sacrificed. It deli"hts us, therefore, to hear tiie fierce cry of " pro scrlpt'ioii" raised by the men, who not only justified but introduced and instigated this prbgcriptivo policy. There is a litruni in listening to their groans. Thoy fall sooth mghj upon the car. OLD RUTLAND AGAIN. Our renders will recollect that wo stated last week mat a portion of the Whigs of Rutland cotiniy were dissatisfied because Judge Willi ams did not receive the nomina lion lor Governor of the Slate, at llio lato Whig Convention, and that we noticed a ru mor, which was spreading in this vicinity, that the Hon. Sot .o.Mo.v Foot, was among the number of the disaffected. We stated also that this gentleman was ono of the very last in the Slate whoso political integrity we should ever have questioned and wo are now happy to assure our friends, on the very best authority, that the rumors wo noticed last week, tire, so far as Mn. Foot is concerned, entirely unfounded, and do him great injus tice. Mr. I'oor is ready to unite most cor dially witli tlm great mass of his political fi lends in the Stale in support of the nomi nees of tlio late State Convention and will cheerfully do all in his power to promote the success of the regular Whig Ticket. While wo arc most happy to be able lints to correct the reports in regard to Mr. Foot, wo regret to bo obliged to say that we havo as yet seen nothing to induce us to alter the statement we made last week in any other particular. Onco more, therefore, we appeal to our political friends in Rutland county. We appeal to them as the common participants of the glorious victory we uchievd last fall What good reason can you assign to your brethren abroad for opposing Col. P.iine and Mr. Ranney, the regular nominees of your party? Aro they not the fairly chosen can didates of a convention fairly called, proper ly conducted, and well attended by the Whigs of this Stale Arc they not men of sufficient capacity, sound political principles, and unimpeachable integrity Have thoy not labored long, fought zealously, and snc- rificed much in support of tho great princi ples with which the Whig party is identified? Wo know tlm Tory presses delight in abu ., i, . . , .,- . sing them. Kut is that a sufficient reason to justify you in opposing them ? Havo they not denounced Oovcrnor Juxiso.v, as tho candidate of the aristocracy? Did they not stigmatize him as an odious, Hartford Convention Federalist and a tool of the Kauk speculators? Did they not most gross ly slander tlio patriot IIaiusisomiikI sneer at his fair fame ? What phrase was too gross, what epithet too scurrilous for them to apph to that venerated name 1 Did they not de nounce him as " a coward" "n granny," " superannuated old dotard" ami "a Bri tish federalist 1" Did they not attempt to fasten upon hint the foul and calumnious charge of approving a lair to scllpoor irhitc. men into siavery I And did tlio Whigs of Rutland county hesitate or waver in their support of theso men on account of thrsu slanderous accusations? Did they not, on tho contrary, rally around them with the greater zeal and a more generous enthu siasm'? And what should now deter them from supporting Col. Paino and the other nominees of the party ? Wo cannot be lieve that our friends in llutlniid county aio prepared to abandon the Whig causo and play into the hands of tho Tory parly, nnd yet such we believe to bo the tendency of tho move lately made by the Rutland Herald! We ask our friends there, if they aro quite sure, that in opposing tlio fairly cboson can didate of their party, they aroestablishing n precedent, which thoy will bo willing to see others follow hereafter ? THE NEW YORK HERALD. Wc have placed in our columns to-day an article from tho Times and Slardotailingtho means by which (bo infamous Dennett has become such a lion in Nuw York. Wo hope every-paper in tho country, without distinc tion of party, will givo theso facts to their readers. Tho time has como to expel this unprincipled wretch from the abodes of civ ilized men. Dy industry and perseverance, his paper has been enabled to acquiro a cir culation possessed by few papers in this country. And in many particulars the Her ald is well calculated to attract tho public eye and 'win thu public patiouagc. And fortius very reason, lis inlluenco becomes ten fold moro dangerous. Wo regard it as tho duty of every right-minded man to use his best cxortions to check tho circulation ofa paper whose editor liko Dennett wc can but regard as a festering mass of moral putrefaction. Read tho article from tho Times and Star. ItWo differ from our New York cor respondent in regard to tho probable fato of Mr. Cluv's Rank Kill DISCORD AMONG TIIE WHIGS." Till' Tories iifi'rct to tlerivo great conjo lation from the fact lhat llio Whigs are not pcrfeclly agreed upon all tlio ikliixh of (ho great uirnstitTs which aro now tlto subject of legislation in Congress. Thu truth is tho Tories havo been so long accustomed to tho drill of parly leader', and have so constantly worn tho collars of . I acl.son and VauKureii, snugly clasped around their necks, that they look in utler ania.enient upon the .spectacle ofa parly, composed of independent iueii,who havo opinion nf their own upon till the great tpiestiotis of National Policy, and who dare to avow and maintain lliem. Hut if the fact lhat tho Administration party is not a perfect Kiiii, tilToiils the Tories any comfort, why, then, as that is a commodity with which thoy avo not been very bountifully supplied in thee latter days, we unanimously adviso them to make the most of il,ns that is the only satisfaction wo intend to giw thein. Kut to tho friends of tho Administration wo suv be not alarmed at the cxaggeiatcd slories of Whig discord and disunion which you read in thu Tory papers. Thoy arc only calculated to frighten and deceive you. Wo have the most peifoct coiifklt'tico that alt tlm great measures of national policy, for which tho Whig party havo been contending for tho last twelve years, will bo atlopted by Con gress at tho present extra session, and rc cievc thcapprohatinn ofthe President. Tho Loan Kill has already become a law. Tho Distiilmiion Kill, and the Foitificatton Kill, have both passed the lower House, the Dauk rupt Kill has passed its third reading in tho Senate, and Mr. Ci.iv's Kan!; Kill is now making rapid progress in both branches of Congress. And wo ha.zud our reputation as a prophet, that notliwitlistamling all tho exultation ofthe Tories.this latter Kill, slight ly modified perhaps, perhaps not, will bo carried both in the Senate, and the House, and in whatever form it finally prevail in Congress, it will be signed by President Ty ler. We do not say this for the purpose of boasting. Wu state il for the special conso lation of thoso patriotic gentlemen of tho Tory party, who seem to be so terribly dis tressed, lest, by the digagrcenient of tho Whigs, some one of these measures should tail lo he adopted. A few short weeks will test the accuracy ofour opinions. KA.MI500ZLI-: KENTON.
