LOCOFOCO POMCY-RESOLUTIONS OK THIS LOCOKOCO STATE CONVENTION. Concluded. j itoofrtrf, That Ilia historv of the self-styled Whig' pnrty, during tho brief linic it lias been in power, ( presents, for the most part, naught but a series of bro-, ken promises and unredeemed pledges, but that tho late popular demonstrations throughout the country in Tavur of Democracy, give hopeful sssurnnces tint the day is not far distant when tho administration of tho General Government will bo confided tothoie who flare nerer tiolaled their promises to Ihepeople. That tho Whigs have? not yet redeemed all their pledges is true ; that thoy may not do it, is also true hut it will only bo because it ia put out of their power. We now holJ, and shall hold, tho Whigs to the faithful redemption of all their pledges. Those pledges were honest ly made ho principle! which tho Whigs pro fessed were true ones and the honor of tho party, as well as the prosperity of tho country, rcquiro that thoy should all he faithfully carried out If those now in power fail by neglect e them ho ousted, and other and better Whigs take their place if thoy fail through tho treachery of professt d Whigs and the force of a factious opposition let the Whigs abandon the traitors, and let the people, if they would havo the Gov. eminent honestly administered on Whig princi ples, see to it that they are not thwarted by locofocoism. These things are to bo noted : the Whigs have been for fifteen months a time too brief more than to begin tho stupendous reform which a corrupt locol'oco administration loft on their hands, even if possessing all power and one spirit for tho groat work. At tho outset they lost thoir leader the centre of the country's hopes. He was succeeded by tho Vice Presi dent a man differing seriously from a majori ty of tho Whigs on some important points, hut yet sustained hy enough, in his peculiar views, to divide the Wliigs, both in Congress and out of it. In tho-c circumstance', it cannot be said that tho Whigs have even the power to redeem all their pledgee : and yut have they done much. The work of retrenchment and reform has been commenced in overy department of tho govern ment ; the sub.treasiiry l.as been repealed ; the Whigs have attempted to remedy a disordered currency faithfully attempted at the e.tra scs sion, though unfortunately in vain ; tho land question has been decided in favor of the states; the bankrupt bill, unpopular as it is now deem ed by some, was passed in obedience unques tionably to the popular will ; the Florida war is closed so far as the government is concerned; the various threatening question of foreign re lations luvo assumed a tar more promising and peaceful aspect : and now the strait-forward, thorough and lionet Whigs, aro doing their ut most to restore Prosperity to this long abused country, by a good Tariff. They aro opposed by a part of the southern Whigs, who ate not of us on this question and never were may thoy speedily repent. They arc opposed too, in thin and nil other measures of Whig reform, hy loco focos, almost without exception. Thus have the Whigs "a hard row to hoe," and may fall But if they fall we trust it will be while fight ing manfully to cany out their principles and honestly redeem their pledges. If o thoy fall no Whig will reproach them : the People will not regard them as recreant to their pledges ; and the country, though it be cursed by misrule, will hold the faithful Whigs guiltless. Such we are proud to believe, will he the course of every ormont Whig we know it will bo of every true Whig let him come whence ho tiny. L'it not the People abandon or discourage those who are endeavoring to be faithful and true. Hathcr should such boencouragod'and strength, ened and supported by the people, more and more, as their labors arc mora t-evcre and the result more dubious. Loast of all should such be abandoned to locofocoism : yes, least of all to that brazen-faced locofocoism, which in the face of twelve long cars of the rankest treach ery, resolves that its loaders "have never viola ted their promises to tho people"! Whereas, At the Kcolution tho sovereignty devol ved on the people and they were the sovereigns of the countr), and, whereas, the citizens of America are equal nsfellow-ciiizcns and as joint tenants in the Bovcicignty, and, whereas, of the right of the whole people to chan'0 their government, at will, there W no doubt, therefore, Iiesolei.d, That we believe in the right of a majority of the people of llliodu Island t.i change their form of Guvcrninent, from a Kins's Charier ma Republican Constitution, and cordially sympathize with them in their attempts to do so j and while we would encour age thein to persevere, wo cannot but condemn the action of the present IC ecu live, and tlmse member of tho Cabinet who are hit advisers, in the course he has adopted in ordering an armed force to that Slate, to overawo tho.people,in the exercise of the inalienable rights, and the privileges guaranteed to them by the Constitution of the United States, Since Ihepeople of Rhode Island havo so signal lyrebuked tho bloody and revolutionary schemes which this resolution was intended tu counten ance, we have no disposition to multiply com. ments. That decision of the people has knock, ed out the foundation-stone, and of course the whole structure falls. We have now given all tho regular resolu tions : the rest are voluntoom : D. P. Thompson introduced the following re tolutioii which was adopted. flesolted, Tint tho Bankrupt, Rill ihe great Whig measure of thi-Whigs, in viuw of all their promises and the maimer in which t lie j have kept them, was conceived iu tho trua spirit ol consistency j the only mistake iri.it being the omission to embrace their mu tual contracts. As this was the only measure of tho extra session of doubtful expediency, and the only one, too, to which the loco focoa gaveauy support wo are perfectly content to leave it as the butt for locofoco ridicule. Tis truth which gives piignancy to sallies of this sort j and if locofocos jranerally succeed no better than this upecimcu "in tho main point, we fancy a further u.lension of the act will bo necessary In bankrupt wits. Woostor Sprvfuo introduced the following Itcsolution, which was also adopted. fof,Thot the proposed tax of 15cts. per pound on green tea and lOets per pound on black, would be a most egregious lax upon the common people 10 sup. port a sinking and eitraogant ttduiinis.ratun. Yes, certainly it would be a tax on the com mon people for revenue, still the locos aro all for a reienue tarifi", and for no other. Why, then, do Osy object J We are against any duty on tea, except as a measure of protection to American commerce. From the foundation of the government until the extra session of Con gress, there was a discriminative duty on tea. Previous to 1Q33 the discrimination was 25 per cent, in favor of our vessels. Aftor ISM thero was a duly of 10 cents a pound on all teas (with out reference to quality,) imported in foreign vessels, or imported in any vessel this sido of the Cape of Good Hope. At tho extra session, all duties were removed and tea was made free. doing upon tho ground tint all interests should bo equally protected, we ought not to object to a discriminating duly on loa ; otherwise wo per. loit tho British Hast India company to monnpo. llze the whulo trade and exclude American com. rnercc : a coiiaui.-.inatlon whirh might cheapen teas somewhat until our own traders were ex. dueled, and then the "common pcoplo" of the Un.tcd States would be forri-i) to pay British mo. nopolists, with interest. Tho bill of tho com-' mittcc of Ways and Means (now before Con. gross) taxes teas in proportion to the quality, .lets. on bohoa, 10 on green, 15 on hyson, and 20 on imperial imported east of the Cape of Good Hope in American vessels, and adds 10 per ct. if imported in foreign vessels. Thus havo wo completed the list of resolutions. Locofoco policy, this year, is to humbug the peo ple on tho TarifT, and find fault with the Whigs. They propose no measures or principles of thoir own, doubtless deeming it wise to keep the poo plo entirely in tho dark as to these. Forget not that their measures ever have been destructive to the interests of tho pcoplo, whatover may have been their professions. Certainly their si lence as to the future is no indication that thoy would uso their power should thoy ever got it with any more of wisdom or any less of evil. H'afc7iiii. CONGRESS. Washington, Juno 20, 1812. In Senate to-day, Mr Ilenton asked leave to intro duce a bill to repeat the Bankrupt law. The l'rc-i-dent suggested that it was not in order under tho rules, without a notice of ten days and a voteol two thirds j the subject once having been acted on this Session. Mr 11. yielded for tho nrcsent. savin? that hn would to-morrow bring up the subject, and state his reasons iur nis acuon. The bill to nrovidc for the nuhlientinn nfnn nrr-nm of the discoveries of the Exploring Expedition under uieui. tviiKcs, was orucrca engrossed. Mr Ituchanancxpressed a hope that tho Temporar J- Tarifi bill would soon bo considoied. Mr Evans said it was his design to move to lake up the August bill first, and then the Tariff bill boihot which he hoped to get through by the close of this week.

' In the House, the Tarifi" bill was again taken up in committee ot the whole on the Union, Mr McKennan oi ra, in me cuair.

He referred to tho action of the committee on Manufactures, nnd the principles on which iheir bill was founded, and replied lo .Messrs Hnlnr!i.nn and Blown of Tenii. The committee considered the principle ot nu vn'oreni duties impracticable, and pro posed as a remedy specific duties, which had been auopieu oy an iiauous, anil which, wlulo easynf col lection, were the most productiveof revmue.

In Senate, this morning, the committee on .uimary .-uuirs, inroiigii .ur i-reston made an im portant report, winch was read by the Senator pre senting it, iu his seat. The Report recommends a moderate reduction of the Army, instead of the reduc tion in the House Armv Mill, which the committee on Finance proposes hall be dimerpcil to, and which would reduce the Armyl'roin 11.S01 loan army nom inally nnioimting to 1,S19. mis would not irivcan clLctiefnice exceeding six thousand men. The commiiten. nrniimn il.m ,, a,. my shall ho reduced to 8,981 men, which would re- dute ihofKpeiises very materially. The Army has already been reduced under the direction snd discre tion oi ine necreiary ot w ar, so mat tliere has been a saving of 8W00. .Mr Pro-ton, in his report further slates that tho reduction ol the Army wuuld make that service smaller than it was in 1?03. In the House, Mr Sinnlcy't resolution in regard to the Virginia Ho'inty Lands, w.is taken up, and after some remarks from Mr (Jilnicr, was laid over mini m-morrow. Tne IIoue then went into committee of the whole, and resumed liic consideration of the subject of the Tarifi". Mr Cowen spoke in favor of a protective tarifi". Mr Kennedy of In. evpicssed himself in favor of a competent taiilflor revenue, but utterly opposed to thu doctrine of protection. Mr Fornance defined his position on the subject, lie said lliat because he had voted to refer tho subject to the committee on Manufactures, he had been set down as a friend to the system of protection. It hail been said that tint was n t.sl question, but if so he was unwilling to be tested by it. He was followed I v Mr Sieenrod, who addressed ihu House for a full hour in opposition to n Protective Tariff. After somo conversation, it was agreed that the question should be taken nn tho amendment pioposed hy Mr Habersham, to tho amendment of Mr Saltan stall. This amendment was in rtTect to substitute llm Uill reported hv the minority of the (Mm liltltpe nn Manufactures, for that reported by the committee of ays anu .ueaus. .

In the House, the temporary tarifT bill received from the Senate as aim ndid. Mr. Fillmore move to suspend tho rules (objection being made) to lake up the amendment of the Senate. He said it was uecessii-y to pass this bill immediately, to give the iiifciriniilion theienf to the farthest part of the United States before tho lstjidv, wh n our present revenue laws cease. If the bill "passed over to to-day this could not be done. Mr. Adams, (who had objected lo taking up this bill, being desirous this day, according to previous nonce, to consider the bill providing for the satisfac tion of claims for Flench spoliations prior to ISOO) thought the delay of this dav beio would make but little dillerencc, os the probability was, as ha under stooil, lb if tht bill would he rclocd by the President. The motion to suspend tho rules failed yeas 127, nays GG two-thirds not voting therefor.

The main question then being on concurrence with the amendment of the Senate, Mossrs Weller, Turncy and Wise succeeded in making some remarks nn the bill by motions to bo excused lrom voting, which they afterwards withdrew.

An extraordinary case of suicide was perpetrated in this city on Sunday, l.illleis known of ihe man who committed sclf.dcstruction, buteuough is under stood to attach deep interest and a spirit of romance to the rasli net. Tho ileceased was a native ol Fance, and a young man of about twenty-five years of age. His trade was tint nf a cutler, and he had been known lo nos- S'ss tint viv icity of tcnipeiunicnt nnd buoyuneoy of spirit dm characteristic of his countrymen. He had iieen married too wile who was young amiable olid interesting. They wero not overburdened with the world's wealth, but n fountain of love, pure and disin terested, existed in tlin bofoin of either of them, from which they mum illy drank and were happy. Tho epidemic of last year, which was indiscrimi nate in ihe selection of its victims, laid Us feverish fingers on tho Inlawed wifeof thedeeeased, Mathilda Oeeelles, and carried her to the grave.

Ho continued to liveon, overshadowed with tho blight nf melancholy, until Sunday last, when taking with him n pistol, ho proceeded to the Potters' Field, and stretching himself on thegraveof his wife, blew his brains out. Self-destruction, nl best. isa desperate alternative. but iu a case like this, w here pure affection prompted the act, charity seems willing to interpose between nu oll'cndcd Deity nnd the suicide. .V.

A few vcars afro there arrived at tho hotel erected nrar tho Niagara Falls, an odd looking man whoso appearance and deportment wore quite in contrast with the crowds of well dres-s-fid and polished figures which adorned that cel ebrated resort. He seemed just to havo sprung lrom the wooeis : ins orcss, wlncli was made ol leather, stood dreadfully in need of repair, an parent!)' not having felt the touch of the needle woman lor many a long month. A worn out blanket, that might have served for a bod, was buckled to Ins shoulders ; a largo knife hung on one side, balanced by a long rusty tin box on the other ; and his board, tincropped, tangled and coarse, foil dawn upon his bosom, as -if to conn tcrpoiso tho weight of tho dark thick locks that supported theuis-elvcs on his back and shoul ders. This btrange being, to tho spectators, seemingly half civilized, half savage, had a quick glancingcve, an clastic, firm movement, that would uoiioutitcut us -fay through tho brakes, both of tho wilderness and of society. He pushed his steps into tho sittiiiLT room. un. strapped his little burden, quietly looked round for the landlord, and then modestly asked for breakfast. Tho host at first drew back with ev idetit repugnance at the appari'ion, which thus proposed to intrude its uncouth form among the gentfeel visitors, but a few words whispered iu his ear speedily satisfied his doubts ; tho stran ger toon lil3 place in me company ; some staring, some shrugging, and some even laughing out. riiiht. Vet, readers, there was more in that single man, than in all the rest nf the throng. Ho was an American woodsman as lie called him. self ; ho was a true genuine sun of nature, yet who had been entertained with distinction at the tables of princes ; learned societies, to which like of Cuvier belonged, had bowed down to wel como his entrance ; kings had been complimen ted when he spoke to them ; in short, ho was one whoso fame w ill bo growing brighter when the fashionable who laughed at him, and many much irreatcr even than they, shall bo utterly perished.

Mrs. Ulennerhassett, whoso personal charms in early life have been rendered uiidiirin'r bv the eloquence of Mr. Wirt, in the famous passage of Ins ueleiice nl her husband, died in IScw York yct-torday, aged 70. Iu going down the Ohio some years ago, wo stopped at her famous island residence, then a waste, iu company with a party of friends, ono of whom, an early resident of Ohio, was famil iar with tho family at the time of Col. llurr's first introduction. Ho readied llio Island, ac cording to this witness, on a lino spring morn, ing, in a small boat, with a servant, whom lie despatched with a note to thu Louse, winch was then, in truth, embosomed in a "shrubbery which Calypso and her nymphs might have envied." The note ran thus : "Cut, liurr solieits thefatar of being per. Milled to wander ainung Ihe grounds nf Mrs. Ulannerhasselt." This, of course, brought a cordial we'enme, and proved the beginning of the end. Not a t-s igo oi me uweiimg rotnains, and nearly ovi-ry 'raco of tho garden is obliterated. Aw ark Daily Ada. The number of United States Pensioners, ar.cord ing lo Ihe icnsut of lfc40, was 20,181 I Veto of the TAntrr. A rumor lias boon I very provalont, for somo days past, at Washing ton and clsowlwro, that tho President would ve to not only any Tariff Dillt but also tho Provis ional Tariff Dill, if cither ehmild bo passed with a clause reppalinjj or postponing the SO per cent, section of the Land Distribution mil. This re port lias been industriously cirtulated and llie tone of various articles which have recently ap poaredin the Madisonian, a paper published in Washington, and supposed to bo in the confi donco of the President, has appeared to give it somo sanction. We havo not seen any good cause toindec us to believe that tho President had avowed or entertained any intention of ve toing tho Tariff Dill, whether it was connected with tho Land Dill or not. Tho Madisonian of Monday, disclaims any authority of tho Presi dent, for tho course it has taken on this subject. Tho following is its disclaimer: "Wo find that wo have been greatly misun. derstood is the import of several articles which havo of lato appeared in tho Madisoni an, in on tho subject of the bill now beforo tho Senate for extending, to the 1st of August, certain revenue acts, and repealing the Misiriuuuoii act. Tho inferonco drawn from those articles wc loam has boon, that tho President will Veto the bill, if passed by tho two Houses. Now, wo have expressed our own oninions as to the measure, without reference to tho President. We know nothing of his opinions nothing whatever from himself or any one connected with hltn. What ho will do, he has divulged to no one certainly not to us. We aro quite sure ho would not express his intention, in relation to anjr bill, in advance of its passage. Whether ho will or will not approve the bill, timo only can determine. Wo do not doubt but that lie will do what ho may believe to bo right." WHIG STATE CONVENTION'.

The County Convention which assembled at Williston on Wednesday, was, we under stand, every thing the Whigs could desire, well attended, enthusiastic, and harmonious. Every town iu the county was fully repre sented. David French of Williston, and Tiiuman Galusha of Jericho, were nom inated as candidates for the Senate, and we have no doubt they will ho elected by a handsome majority. We shall publish an account of the proceedings next week. BROKEN PROMISES. These words and others similar, form al most the whole tiiirelcn oflho mournful ditties of Locofoism in these days of their affliction, and the pertinacity which they manifest in striving to fasten tho charge of breaking promises upon the Whigs, might produce nn cflbct upon tho minds of somo men, wero the character of those who cry " stop thief," less familiar to llio people. JJul so it unfor tunately turns out, that the pcoplo aro not the fools which Locofocoism would make them out to be inasmuch as the memories of most of them arc sufficiently retentive to recall the era of 1829, when these immacu late accusers were in high feather, dealing out "promises" with tho profusion of very spendthrifts, and going all lengths in what over pledges seemed most likely to elevate the "reformers" of that day to the seats of powor. Tho timo.is too short, gentlemen, which has elapsed, since the promulgation of the promised exploits of Jackson democracy, to allow of the possibility of their being for gotten by those who wore cheated by them and tho experience, tho bitter, ruinous, prostrating experience which has followed tho misplaced confidence of that period, will be to all time a perfect guaranty against the natural forgetfulness which might in ordinary cases assist you in wiping from the minds of the people, tho memory of your " broken promises." No! twelvo years is too short a period for any great political events to bo forgotten, how much too short then for a people a whole people, groaning under the accumulated disasters inflicted upon them by a twelvo years reign of unprincipled profli gates, elevated to power by virluo of the fairest pledges, to forget thoso pledges, or the men lio roso upon them, only to tram ple them under their feet. Let no ono wonder ut tho impudence of such men in talking about broken promises for who but just such characters would de scend to tho falsehood of charging thu Whigs with breaking their promises, with llio im plication that they had llio power to fulfil them, while they know, and every body knows, that circumstances unparalleled in the history of any parly, havo placed it out of their power to carry out all their measures. Yet this makes no difference to tho evil spir it of Locofocoism, which like Satan in Pan demonium, is darkly plotting, by crafty stealth, to regain those high seats from which retributive; justice) lias hurled them down for ever and which, like him and his compeers, thoy may never hopo lo fill again by any open and bold attempt. Tho Whigs stand ready whenever thoy have the power, to ful fil all their pledges, and when the destruc tives, after spending the whole twelve years of their abominable reign in breaking and scoffing at every pledge which they falsely made to client the pcoplo into trusting thrin, can fasten tins charcc of nromisu-hreakiii" upon the Whigs for not doing what was out of llicir pouer, then shall wo believe llio pcoplo lovu their enemies nnd hatu their friends, hut not till then.

Let llio hum-drum chorus of "Whig promises, "broken promises," &cibc Kept up by tlio hypocritical partizans ol pseudo democracy, but the people, tho final board of arbitrators jvill ultimately decido who havo broken tho most promises, with the powor to fulfil -them, and by 7icir judgment wo aro contented to abide. Wo shall tako tin carlv opportunity to point out a littlo moro definitely somo of tho numerous promises which the Tories made in 1829, when thov succeeded in overthrow ing tho administration of John Quincv Ad ams, and wo will endeavor lo refresh the recollection of our readers with their unri valled success in fulfilling them. CONGRESS. It is very much tho fashion now-a-days io find unmeasured fault with Congress, and lay to their charge every evil under which tho country is suffering. Wo say it is tho fashion that is, it is systematically pursu ed by tho Loco Focos, and thoy arc readily seconded by tho few sycophants who aro content to wear tho nondescript badge of lylerism. According to theso sage confed erates, Congress lias done nothing, is doing nothing, and never will do any thing but wrangle and pass bills for their own pay. They will havo it that the public business has been grossly neglected, mcroly because some hot heads, and somo scoundrels havo wormed their way into tho National Halls of Legislation, and occasionally disturb the de liberations of Congress. These quarrels, wo aro sorry to say, seem to tako moro hold of public attention than tho real business of!awn,t the actum of tho General Assembly, tho country which is all the while going j PL'ai"Co it will he rrcollected was formerly. a steadily on, and to which these occasional ; member ol ' Conjrcss and is decidedly ths rows are mere episodes, in which the useful lct"lg spirit of the suffrage party. business men of Congress plav no part. Yet many people read nothing but the account of a blow-up in Washington, while thoy are too lazy or negligent to read the regular re ports of tho proceedings, and so they make up their minds that, as they have " heard nothing from Congress exci pt that there was a duel expected between Wise and Stanley" it must needs bo that nothing is going on thore except the said duel, nnd they there fore gravely conclude that the members are a pack of lazy, indolent, good-for-nothing fellows, utterly unfit for their places. But let us see how this matter stands. We havo it from good authority that Congress have perfected moro business during the present session thus far, than has been done by any former Congress in the same timo for many years. Somo people think that tho great bills which are much discussed and thought of every where constitute the chief busincrs of the National Leeislalurc. But how coniplolcly oio thoy mistaken! It is the untold multitude of private claims, and j estimates and appropriations for compara tively unimportant objects, all necessary to keep the vast machine of government in mo tion, which furnish the field for the toil and labor of our Congressmen. It is in Co;i- : mittees, not in tho House, that the work of the House is done. Tlio few spouters who claw off from the Committees, in order to be at leisure to speachify when occasion offers, reap all the glory, while the real, useful, 'shrewd business men, who, in the seclusion j of tho Committee Room, work even onto tlio end of tho session, amid musty deeds, pay rolls, estimates, and swarms of hungry claimants, anil interested speculators, these men, the workics of llie House, who consti tute a majority ofit, arc left to do the labor, content with having faithfully served the country, and more than earned their Eight Dollars a day. Let no honest man fill to berating Congress for neglecting llie business of the Country, until bo really knows all they have done, and have to do. Such a course is highly characteristic of Locofoco ism and Tylerism, who havo both an inter est in making it appear that a Whig Con gress, aro a very naughty set of fellows ; but let every true Whig weigh tlio evidenco be fore lie condemns jch a body of men as tlio present Congress, simply because Wise is a blackguard, and ProfTit a knave. RHODE ISLAND CIVIL WAR ! Our readers will perceive by referring to another part of our paper that the Rhode Island rebellion has broken out anew. The redoubtable Dorr has relumed from bis in glorious flight at tho head of from ono thou sand to fifteen hundred Loco Foco recruits, mostly from oilier Slates. Hero our rea ders have an exhibition of genuine Locofoco ism.

And in all this, tlt forever, Freo Trade Henrv Hubbard wn-i .nmin.i bo remembered, ho has been countenanced, yea encouraged and instigated by the Loco Focos of New York, Massachusetts and Ver mont. Tho Tory stato convention, which lately met at Montpclier, our readers will re member, formerly endorsed their proceed ings. Had it not been for this and other such encouragement, iJeirniever would havo dared to have carried his treason to such an extremity. Uut this state of things cannot long continue. We aro happy to say tho constituted atitliorirs havo adopted llio most vigorous measures to presorvo tho majesty of llio laws and sccuro the tranquility of the Slate. The stato has been placcel under martial law by tho goner il assembly and nn act has also been pas- d calling a conven tion of tho Pcoplo for tho purpose of form ing a now constitution. The Providence Journal of Saturday says: From all parts of the State except the disaffected portions of Providence county, the people aro nocking in to maintain tho government, of their own free choice. The crisis is immediately at hand, and the men who aro now rallying around tho govern ment will not bo disbanded until tho ques tion IS SETTLED. Wo do not loarn that tho liberal action of tho General Assembly has produced the slightest effect upon the men whom Dorr has collected around him at Chcpachet. No ono is surprised at this, for no one expected any thing different. Tho act was not pas scd for them, but for tho peaceable, order loving citizens of tho State, who sincerely desired a chango in tho government, when- over it could bo made in a way to show that it was not brought about by intimidation. The men around Dorr at Chcpachcl, care nothing for suffrage ; thoy are for plunder and rapine. There is no exaggeration in this language ; tiicy aro a band of fierce, blood-thirsty ruffians, caring nothing for the' institutions of the state, and, generally, know ing nothing about them, but anxious only for commotion and civil war. Tho politicians in New York, who got up tho Park meeting; the demagogues throughout the Union, who endeavored td make this littlo State the small change of po litical parties; tho editors of newspapers who have extended their sympathy and ur ged on tho brutal ruffians now embodied against tho laws of tiio State, are responsible for all this. Wo havo no fear of the result. Our only regret is, that honest blood should How, that the gallant yeomanry of the State must be pitted against tho traitorous ruffians who oppose them.
