LOCOFOCO POLICY RESOLUTIONS OF TUG STATE CONVENTION. In nrcnrilanco ivith our promlno last wook, wo preened lo giio llio resolutions adopted nt Iho rocoul -lucofoco stnto convention. This wo do, as wnll for the information of our rcadore, is for tlto purpose of nppoudmg a few remark. They open, ai follwn, upon , THE VAUIFF.

" Iteiolctd, That our Senators in Congress be in stMictod, and our Representatives requested, to use all honorable means in their power lo procuro the pssjage of laws which, while Ihoy shall gnaid sain't the numerous frauds and evasions now prac ticed upon us be foreigners and foreign agents, and wh.lo they shall raise a revenue sufficient only for tlin nccessirv expense of Ciovcrnmcnt, and shall Invo n diw regard to Mie particular interest of every co uurv nnv giro bv tuoteetiio duties, such a pre- fersnca lo domestic out foreign products in our own markets, and nnv so discriminate between those ar ticles which vvecnii and those which wo cannot pro- ilueoat home, as tofjivo a just, sure, and salutary en. enuiagcment to thoindutiryot every American citi ten." Tho uVfdjrn of tliosa lesolutions is two-fold: Vint, to represent tho Whig, in and out of Congress, as being in favor of protecting only e.orporato interests and of sacrificing agrirul ttire ! Were this any tiling but what it is, a monstrous fi'schood, one would supposo that it would bo sustained by full; explicit and con chiaivo proofs ; it could bo backed up by tho whole coutfO qf tiio Whig party on this subject by reports and speeches, and bills, and votes evidence of thq,.liighest possible character ; for surely bo grave a charge demands high proof, and surely, too, if such proof existed it would hue boon forth coming. Butuc!i uv. !d.?:ico cannot bo fmrid. On every nccis-ion, and every whe-ro throughout the TarilV states tlto hislrry of the p-,it shown that it is the V." h r-j who Invo beon uniformly tho firmest ,'id s'rongpst friends of protection, in its broad, oft mtent. It was Whig votes which secured this Tariffs of '21, '29, '32,; Whig votes which saved the utter annihilation of the doctrine of Protection in '33 ; Whig votes, which were cast in favor of protection in IS 11, and Whig votes which havo beon cast in 181'J for tho amo high object. In Congrors and in the country, it id emphatically and almost exclusive ly tho Whig party, which is now in favor ofef. ficient protection to all interests. Aye though it puts tho chargo of falsehood upon tho (in Boino respects, cortainly,) respectable locofoco committee on resolutions wo affirm that there is no Whig to our knowledge, in Congress or out of it, who has over given countonanco to tho accusation undo in tho first resolution ; and if there is a man, professing to be of the Whig faith, who adopts it, wo have only to say that he ssdly belies hie professions, and should at once be condemned and banished lo the ranks of lo. rofccoistn. Now tinrk tho uiinncr in which tho icicni'ocos cipL'ivor lo give color to their lie. It is not by fair, direct, and unimpcachabio proof, surh as could bo found to sustain tho chargo if it worn trim : but by the concealment of truth ARRIVAL OF THE BRITANNIA.

Business at such tunes is usually brisk in all its channels mechanics, traders and all, hud full einpluv. The farmer's pursuit is the most important to hit nan subsistence, and tho fanning- population, by their iniiubcrs and worth, stand first anion" thn classes. Theircotidition is tho one to claim tho first and highest toward hut when we come to consider ihu question how llioir interests can bo promoted (we re'ur to pecuniary interests) it is obvious tha' tho causes which na':e tho duties would infor that a great picfanro is given to woolens: and they conceal tho demonstra- blo fact, that tho bill of tho Whig committee on Manufactures giics a very great preference to tha wool.grower in tho amount of eHiciont protection. Again, they conceal tho fact tlut on a tost vote, at this very session as well ns tho last, tho Whi0's of tho freu states voted en masse for a protective tari!!", whilo the loses, with haroly thirteen exceptions, vo!od against protection. Still again, thoy conceal tliu fact that protection to manufactures it substantially protection In agriculture, as it ntlurds agricul ture a market. Finally, to cap tho climax of de ception, a naked extract is quoted from rertain rosolutioiii of a Massachusetts convention, de. daring that a "duty on tho raw material is a tax on the manufacturer." Prom this they force the inference that this convention was opposed to protecting the raw matcriil. Surh was not tho fac!, as to that convention j and such is not tho just and true inference from the resolution quoted. It being true that a duty on the raw material is a tax on the manufacturer, the only inference is that tho manufacturer ought to re ceive a degree, of protection sufficient to enable him lo meet this tax. If he does not, hn neccs mrily ccaFCs manufacturing, and tho market fur the raw material is at an end. Surh iu the ft msy and deceptive character of, enahl the premises on w hich the rcsoltr.irm.inakers ! eloths at lower rates than now found their false accusation. We dismiss this brniicli without i omnieut, and pass to the sec ond thing designed, which is, to represent the locofocos a tho peculiar friends of Protoction I Here, too, is a lack of the very kind of proof which is moil necessary. Do they go to tho Journals of past Congresses to the yeas and nays to tho reports and speeches j and do thoy show any measure of protection which licrfos in Congress have presented !

The Whigs of the town of Bur lington are requested to moot at Howard's Hotel, on Monday tho 27(h at half past seven o'clock in e evening, lor the purpose ol nppointinii Uologalos to ntloni the Counly and State Conven tions. Let us hove a general gathering. By order of Town Committee. Wo published a fuw weeks ago nn extract from tlio minority report of tlio committeo on Manufactures, to show that the Tories in Congress, as every whero else, wero in fnvor of " reducing the trages of labor." Tim Sentinel, with characteristic honesty, seized upon this extract from tho minority report, declared that it was submitted by a Whig, and then went on to insinuate that tho Whigs were tlie true "late wages," anti-tariff, " free trade" party 1 ! Docs our neighbor think ho can deceive intelligent men by such bare faced misrepresentations? Who uro tho members who mado the minority report, IWr Sentinel'! Will you inform your readers I Do you know yourself? If not wo will in form you. They are Caldxccll of South Carolina, an anti-Tariff Loco Foco of the worst stamp ; lirown, another Loco Foco of tho samo stamp, from Tennessee, and Ha bersham of Georgia, an anti-Tariff man, who claims to bo a Whig. Wo, however, class him with tho Tories, for wo will sustain no man, whatever may bo his claims, who op poses tho doctrine of protection. This is tho test question with us. If tlio Sentinel will tako the samo ground, and refuse to sustain any man or any party, who opposu a pro tective tariff, wo will admit its honesty, in professing friendship for a Tariff. Hut while that consistent and veracious print is doing nil in its power to put down tho Whigs, who aro and ever have been the only true friends of protection, and to elevate the Tories who are the deadliest enemies of the cause, every honest, right-minded man, must consider its professions deceptive, insincere, and hypo critical. Wc ask the attention of the truo frtonds of protection to the following extract from tho Watchman : THE API'OUTIONMliNT UILlT Hy referring to tho Congressional tirocood- ings, our readers will perccivo that tho Ap portionment titii, as amended by tho Senate. has finally passed hoth branchos of Congress. Tho amendments of llio Sennle, our readers will rccolloct, wero only two first changing tho ratio from fifty to scvonty thousand, and secondly, giving another member to thoso Slates which had a fraction of moro than ono half. This Bill now only lacks the siimaj - D turo of tho President lo become a law. Tho wliolo number of members, under this ratio, will lie two hundred nnd twenty three, as will appear from the following table : Maine 7 New Hampshire) .Massachusetts iu 2 1 1 3) Ilhoilo Island rjomict tictit Vermont New York New Jersey Pennsylvania Delaware Maryland Virginia North Carolina South Carolina S 21 1 G .15 9 7 (corgia Alabama Lmiismnn Mississippi Tcnncsseo Kentucky Ohio Indiana Illinois Missouri Arkansas j Michigan 8 7 4 4 11 in 21 10 7 6 1 3 223 PATENT WAGGON SPUING. Wo wcro called upon, the 'other dav, Is tako a rido with a friend, in a waggon mount' cd upon a patent spring, termed an improve ment upon Hie spiral spring, and invented by Mr It. IJ. Hi own of Williston. This spring is decidedly superior to any wc ever before rode upon. We never passed oyer thn ground, on a pleasure excursion, with so much ease and comfort to oursclf, in ony carriage wo havo ever used before. It is certainly a very great improvement in wag gon springs, and Mr Brown richly merits the gratitude of the riding public for his in genious and useful invention. We advise all who desire to rido with comfort and caso in their carriages, to procure this kind of spring. Mr Brown will furnish it for any carti.ige nt the very low pneo of three dol lars. TIIK TARIFF AND THE LAND HILL. It will be seen by ruferenco to the pro ceedings of Congress that the House of Rep resentatives, on Wednesday of last week, passed tho temporary Tariff Bill, ith a sec tion providing for tho repeal of the twenty per cent, clauso of the Land Distribution Act This is highly gratifying lo all true Whigs, as it affords u satisfactory indication of the disposition of tho I louse on tlio gn at ques Hon ot a protective larill, a question on which nro based the hopes of restoring tho business of the country from its present state of embarrassmont and depression. It ap pears from the votes on tho adoption of this bill, taken after an animated and piquant de bate, that a decided majority of tho House arc in fnvor of sustaining tlto Land Distri bution Law. Wo regard the enforcement of this law as an indispensable pro-requisite to the establishment of a permanent and uni form system of protectivo duties. For, so DOUIlI.n DEALING EXPOSED. Who iconld sacrifice the WooUCIroiecrs! ' The Vermont locofoco Stato Convention rc- j solved that the H'ii-s are for protecting niaiiu- tacttires by sacrilicmg tlio woni-grnwer. iNmv be it known, that tho boot is on tho other leg. Tho hieiifiien minority of tlio committee on Man- ufacrures, (Caldwell of S. C. and Drown of Ten nessee, locofoeins, and Habersham of Geo., an anti-latin" Whiff,') have made a report, which is now hetore us. I hoy are opposed to a pro tectivo tarill a revenue tariff only will suit them ; nevertheless they aro forced to admit that manufactures should not bo entirely aban doned, ami so tbey propose to lienytl immujnr.. lures by reducing Ihe iluly mi the raw material! ! Thoy propose to strike out the very host part of Mr SaltonstallV duty on wool (the 4 cents spe cific,) leaving; only U'.i per ct. ad valorem ; and thon bnvo tho hirelihoou lo say, that the reduced duty will r-ivo protection enough to tho rate ptatcrial, Wo quote from tho report : "Tho duty oniroo, by the proposed (SnllonstaU's) bill, is 23 per cent, ad valorem, and 1 e'cnls per lb. .XriAe on the 1 cents, anil you ado to tlio proms of tho wool factory in Dutchess county, above refund to, $7000, or 3 per cent, on tho, ami slill leave 23 per cent ad valorem, as 3 protection 10 the wool Kroner." They further reduce tho duty on pig iron and leather, avowedly for tho honetit of blacksmiths and shoo-makers, of course at the expon-.e of iron-mongers and tanners, and then add : "lltduee the dutyo-i Al.t. OTIIHIl RAW JIAT11 KIAI.S nse'ei in mamifartures lo a rerenuetlulv, and you reliue all other branches qf mannfaituix.'1 Slill again they say : "If, then, tho manufactures of wool, iron, nnd leather, are really iu the distressed condition m which ihcy sro represented to be, wu may, without destroy, mg the factories, yive them essential relief, by rcdu cini.' the duty on the rntr material, by subjecting it to a moderate duty only instead of a duty of cxcIumoii, as in tliu threo cases I have named." Such is tho locofoco mode of protecting man ufacturos, e.vcopt cottons: here thev transfer the burden to the laborers in the factories. We shall quote more fully cro long ; in the mean time read this : . " But it will bo slid, if this i really tho state of the raw material of the cotton manufacturer, then tho rcliel to bo nirirded to him must bo by other means than by itducing the duty 011 the raw material. The other modo which presents itself Is, ItV A RF.DUC TION IN Til P. 1'ltlCK OF LAItOIl. The neces sity for this we leave entirely :o the decision of ihe manufacturer, themselves, and thoso whom they cmplov. They know best what late of wages they can afford to pay out of their profits; and we, tho consumers, only' ask, that if ihey pay wages ihreo limes ns ingn as are pniu 111 l.nglnnil or on tne con long as the doctrino prevails, that a Tariff!

The position is too clear to roquiro argument to enforce it. Wo rejoice, theroforo, that the House of Representatives have resolved to sustain this beneficent law. It aflbnls a grat ifying proof that thero is yet a reliable Whig majority in that body, over tlto abstraction ists, iho Tories and the Tyleritcs. Tho Tories, as usual, did all in their power to embarrass nnd retard tho action of tho House, and ultimately to defeat tho passago of the Bill. Hut thanks to tho energy and perse verance of the Whigs, their efforts wcro un availing. IMPORTANT. We spoko of Nathan Sntilio, n wook or two ago, as a rum-seller and grocer, Imving always understood that he was engaged ex tensively in that business.

Vury well, wu cheer fully niako thn coirection, if it is true we wero not however a wnro of tho fact befoie. Will our neighbor of tho Lamoille Whig in form us what aro theeiri in llio case. Our only object in making tho enquiry is to ob tain correct information in the ptomises. 1 For it is of ihu utmot importance, when way of high protection." Here, then, wo present our roadors with di rect, conclusive, and incontrovertible it is the organs of the locofocos in Congress, if any body, who aro for sacrificing tho farmers, wool-growera and laborers. Qh, how trry, lery honest or how ignorant, were the locofoco resolution-makers. Let them consult their leaders iu Congress before they undertake to manufacture charges of this kind against the Whigs.

The Lexington Intelligencer of tho IOtU instant, coniains a full account of the great festival given in that city on the 9th, in hon or of the Patriot Clay. It is represented by the Intelligencer to have been a meeting of unsurpassed enthusiasm and unequalled interest. Moro than twenty thousand of tho gallant sons of Kentucky, it is said, volun tarily assembled on the occasion to do honor to the retired statesman. The multitude wcro not drawn together by mere idle curi osity, to bear an orator whose eloquence was a stranger to them, or to see a man their eyes had never rested on. Far from it. Thoso who had known him longest, who knew him best, his friends, his neighbors, citizens of that noble Stale whose " Escutcheon he had embla.oned with immortal renown," theio and such as these wore the first, the most eager at the feast. At about 10 o'clock a great body of gen tlemen mid ladies assembled on the Collcgo lawn, and wero presented to Mr Clay. Tho processi'on was then formed, led by thy Lex ington Light Infantry a splendid body of soldiers, followed by an immenso concourse- of cili.ons on foot. Then came a barouche, drawn hy four noble greys, in which wero seated Mr Clay, Gov. ft. P. Letcher, Lt. Gov. Thompson, and Judgo Robertson, President of the Day. Following this were the Committor- of gen tlemen from Ohio, nnd invited guests. Then came a pot trait of Gun. Harrison, drawn upon a car, followed by tho Committee of Arrangements, nnd a long train of carriages, from 3 to 500 in number. A fine band of music also accompanied the procession. They reachhd the ground a beautiful wood land pasture a short distance from the city whore a sumptuous dinner was served up in splendid style. Alter dinner the following toasts were announced : 1. The late and lamented H'm. . farruon An honest man, a pure pniriot, nnd the pecple's friend : May his memory never cease to be enshrined in tbu grateful remembrance of on admiring posterity. 2.

And this is the only error which has jot been dis covered in tho huge mass of festoring cor ruption which a Whig Congress has alrendy exposed.
