O'l motion, n committee of seven was ap pointed to draft and report resolutions, to wit: Messrs. Chailes Adam, Harvey Roll, Or lando Slovens, Samuel Adams, A. G.

Mr. Sruvr.xs moved Iho appointment of a committee of five, by tho chair, to nominate a person to represent this Disliict in the Whig National Convention, to bo holden nl I! iltiinore, in May next'; and Messrs. Josisni Warnur, S. W. Kuvcs, Wai.i.is Mott, I'aris Fletcher and John Puck were appointed. Adjourned to 3 o'clock, I. M. AFTERNOON. Convention met pursuant to adjournment. Mr. Burt, Chairman of the Committee of Nomination, reported to tho Convention, as tho nearly unanimout voico of the commit tee, the naitui of Hon. CiKOUG F. P. MARSH os a suitablo person to represent us in the next Congress ; which report was accepted, and submitted to tho consideration of the meeting. Tho question Again lecurring on ill adaption, tho votn was taken by rising, and declared to bo unanimous ; and Mr. Marsh was proclaimed duly nominated. On motion, oidered that a committee be appointed to wait on Mr. Marsh, nnd inform biin of his nomination; undA.G. Whittc moro, Esq. was assigned to this service. Mr. Marsh iippearcd in tho house, and having been announced to the President, pro ceeded to address the Convention. Mr. Pritidcnt and titntlcmtn oftht Cvnrtntitm n'tnlilwhcil custom requires, ilnl tho tucctuful eandidnte, on oceuiunt like the prelum, in ocrtpt. ing the honor tendered him, thuuld express his ac knowledgment! to the body by whom he has been elected. The custom is in my opinion .1 proper one. in itself, and it has a peculiir fiiiiftj, when, as in the pretentin'tance, the candidate is personally a stran ger to n creat proportion of ihnu who have concur red in his nomination, I nut bound to presume, that tlit members of the convention hare not acted witliojt svidence talif factory M them, not only of the politi. ual soundness and political integrity ot llic candidate if llieir choice, but tint he pos;eFPe some reasonable measure of ability for the maintenance of the prinei. pU't, which they and he in common profess. I might Ihsrefare perhaps b excused from making n confer lion of my political faith, but llio ennfurion in which botlilht Itiibit); politicnl pirties ol tin Union bavv len thrown hy the inesnrr.f led faithlessness of Jr nccidf ti tat Priculent hat ltd 10 such n general din (.tjan'nitioii, that thaoM party eppcllationt art not (-t.-fa'ily a siirBcienl indication of iht principle! tf il.et) wi trtt luf.H. i or Milt Ittsun, I slis'l, with yotirindulfiC'ico, slalo Ihclcadina principles by uliali t eliall bo governed, if I should bo bo forluiiito ns to ubtam tln sjiiclionof tliu Why frcaninii of the l)is tnet to your nomination. With regard lo llio ccncral duli. s of a Heprcscntaiivc, 1 hold that, t!toit;li elec ts 1 by n Pfltict, he is an officer of the nation, nnd consoii'tcmly i not bound, or indeed nt liberty, to sacrifice tho cencrnl goo 1 of tho whole, or tho richls of any scciion of our common country, lo promote, tho imcrcsteof his own. Ho is however to consider himsilf ai spcci illy charged uith the guardianship of iho interests of that portion, which he more particu tally reprcnenlt, and is lliorcforo bound lo mako him self intimately neqinimeit with those intcies!.", nnd to defend an I promote them tollia utmost extent, which is consistent with the rivhls nnd the prosperity of tho other portions. From this docttino follows almost as a. nceersiry corollary, that the riqht of instruction, U tlia tent lowlpchil is chimed in certain ccctionn of the t'uioii, can hate no existence, nnd I ajrcn with the great body of the Whigs of tho North in r ii'idial- iitj thn prcti iidid rich t, as well for thi, as for sonic other reasons. Tho Constitution of Vermont, I am aware, declaics tint iho people have n lllit to instruct thtir representative)", but if this clause have any ap plication erecpl in regard to the members of our do- mcs ie legislature, it is inoperative, both because no mode hasbcenpointidoutfjra3"ert.iining thosensoof lha people and conveying the instructions, and I ecausj it .s r?p'i!!iiant to the 'pint of the constitirion of tho U. fjtate', from w Inch nlone buih I Innscs uf Congress de rive thtir anilioiity. IS'rithtr is it in my judgment, the true thory of our (iovcrnment, that nil men arobolh c.iti;iecnt and prtpartd to decide upon all questions, iv limit mii within tho cojuuanco of the national le gislature. The founders of the American Union held,! not only that all men are born free and independent, but tin! they are endued with an intuitive perception of their natural and social ri?ht, and therefore, that they arc competent to prescribe both tho form of their ovcrnment and the principles upon which it shall be exercised, as well ns to select lliosa who shall Irjcii- tnsiul with its administration. And hy mailing all freem. n dibble to all offices, without limitation of bit tli. cstite, condition, or profesjion, the doctrine is hipli.d, that all ratimal tn -n nre natural!' comne- ttnl to th idi'diargi of the duties of every official sta- tian. Hut it is not presumed, that all men ate lire- jtartd to deci I j on all tho complex nnd ever varying questions, upon tne rilit determination of which the icec'sful administration of govrnmrnt depends. There is a large class of riilijects. and nn c.xtensivo rsngeof qiiasiions, involving the general good of the nation, which can not always be brouuht within the reach of the great lodyof the freemen, nnd which moreover cannot bs satisfactorily or fairly adjusted, without such nn interchange of opinion, nnd frcfiucnt- ly surh mutual concessions, between difl'erent parts of theUrioa, as can only tain-place by personal com miinraiion. The only practicable mode of accom pliMnngthisis obviously by rrferring these subjects toiieiegaiesirom every section of the nation, to whom the final power of disposing of ihcm is entrusted, and these arc precisely the questions, which, by our con slit Mioii, form the legitimate tn1 jecls ofCongrcsnon- at action. Hut though the representative is to this nr. tsnt independent of Ins constituents, he is bound to treat llieir deliberate opinions upon nil subjects, so far at these can bo ascertained, with the inest usnret. ful consideration, nnd it is not pethaps going too far iu say tint upon local question", those opinions fchould have r. controlling force with him. These then are the gencrtl principles, upon which the action of 3 re presentative of thepioplc should bo founded, but it my I c a matter of greater present interest to you to know moropatticu'arly my opinions on the general policy which ought to be adopted by our roscrnment. and cpen tho great questions, which have for some , jcirs been theptincipal tliauur of political diicussiou. Tho most important subject, whHi (alls within the proper jurisdiction of the national government, is iho riguhuiun ofour foreign relations. The&'latisof th American Union, it has been well said, owe their poliiical cxi'lence to the principle of dissent and scpa Mtion from the established forms of Ilnrnnran fior. eminent and civil institutions, and this is especially true of Xew Ungland, whoso rude climate and com paratively barren soil were fdceted by that venerable ban I of persecuted Englishmen, who fiist occuiied them, nut as has been falsely rsid, because they wcro thought to odl-r peculiar advantages for commerce and agriculture, but with a provident which foresaw, thai aregion less attractive to adven turers than the inviting eouth was best fitted for the dwelling place of men, who were fccking a new home for the cake cf emancipation from the constraint of form", and the restraints of political inst.lutior.s, which they felt to he subversive of the rights cf conscience. nnd inconsistent with the in!n rent political riMits of man. It .9 to this principlo of dissent, that we owe our most valuable institution, and we havo madetha greatest improvenienls when wo havo deviated most wultly tiiim Hie models and e landards of Europe. Our community of origin, language arid law with tho people of England exposes us to special danger from tin grow in 01 i.nglili infiucnce, and iho law uf self preservation demands, not only that we should not in general imitate, but lliat in most poinis wc should counteract, llio policy nf that aristocratic, grasping, and selfish country. The nolicv of tho American Government therefore ought with few exceptions to be not merely diverse from, but antagoinstical to that of the cabinets of Europe, nnd we have particular rea son u 00 on our guaid against the movements o l.nglaml, which aio obviously directed to the attain ment of an universal controlling inllucticc, if not of universal empire. At almost the same moment, she iswsgingawnr with Chun for the support n'nl ex tension 01 an unholy commerce, seizing upon new territories in Indn, occupying new islands in thecqua torial seas, and threatening the colonization of our own North West coast. The last nnulish steamer brings u-. intelligence of tho annexation to the Ilriiish empire of the District of fc'cinde, a wealthy and popu lous country on the Indus, and of tho plunder of its treasury and capital, nnd the last arrival from tho Pa. cifio.mnounCM that the colonization of. cw Zealand tins mm luen folluwul by the forcible seizure of the entire group of the Sandwich islands. These mena cing measure o.ight not only to be me!, but resisted, nnd though I nm not prepared to tny that tho time has come for the military occupation of the territory of Oregon by our llovcrnmeiit, yet wo ought nt least to maimain.and tf necessary, to enforce, thedoclriiics uf that famous niefsageof a former President, which declared that the American continent was no longer a field for Kuropean colonization. The most impor tant point of collis.on bitwccn American nnd Euro pean inlercHj is that nhieh involves the great ques tion of governmental protection to domestic industry in all its brnnehts, and ibis is one of the (cw points in which w can hope to gain any thing by copving from the polry of i uropeau powers. I!ut even herej though the means lo be employed by us must resem ble those which havo been adopted by England, yet ibe principle e and motives ot action arc widely oilier ent. England aims at iccuting a monopoly for her self, w lids we nre content with carrj ing out the true principles of protection nt home and fair comnctiti.m broad. 1 see no probability that this end en l,a nl,. lained by nymean., but by legislative action, which shall b constant in principle, but varying in detail, ccordmg to the changing policy of foreign govern ments, the progressive growth and modif'uU charac ter ofour own indiiitry, oml our ownwantu nnd mcansof !uply. T'10 hope lias reecnil been bebl out by one of ilia most eminent ol the statesmen of New England, that a frr menmreof permanent pro tection for these cardinal interests can be obtained by diplomatic negotiation. The regulation ot dut;es int. posed for revenue nlone, by a treaty between the ex ecutive nnd a foreign cal met, seoms'nn encroachment upon the proper duties of the moro popular branch of the nntional legislature, but apart ironi this objection, there seem to be inseparable objections in tho way of accomplishing this plan. The institutionsof England nie artificial nnd unnatural beyond any thin, . liic-lx has ever exi.ted in any otb.r country, and so long os those institutions subsist, I do not believe lliat any reciprocal policy can bo conducive to the interests of both nation. We ure encouraged to hope, that the corn of die weit, nnd the sugar, the cotton, tho rice and tho tobacco of the south may be admitted into Engluh iort on such terms n lo make them highly profita blcarliclts of cultivation nnd export, and that trealiet may b. negotiated with other powers, which shall se cure lo the lopping of the sea board employment in the carrying trade. Hut for these ndvanlarev, it is ad mitted lint wt must givt the only equivalent we hate to ofl'er the admission namely of Ilritisb manufic tur at mchtitei of duty ai the forei?n producer ctn ttr.tJ is fty. JVw KnghmJ, Nw Yvil, md Pnn. sylvnnin, taken os a whole, have few or no surplus ag ricultural products In spare, nnd if the proposed tys. tern is ndopted,ltio inter ,or of those slates Uhopotcss lyaud irretrievably siciificed lo tho WcjI, llio South, nnd Iho sivboard. I do not by these observations mean to admit, that tlio prosperity of nny part of tho I'nnn Is really to bo advanced by measures which must ho fatal lo tho North. 0,1 tho contrary 1 havo no doubt, thai tho true policy of protection for alt branches of industry, whether those of aimplo pro duction or of conversion, will bo found Indispensable to tho best interests of every scciion of tlu Union, while without lliat policy tho stains of tho North mint soon sink to tho coaditiou of .Switzerland, Nor way, arid nthcriiifcrlilu.mil mountainous countries of Europe, which are frco indeed, but politically insignlfi- cant, thinly populated, and 1100 Thero i, so far as I know, n.n ilm tunc, .,,, 1 r hope that the gi eat question of the currency will be stusLiciuiiiy m-jusicu uuriii!; 1110 tettn ot the present administration, and I shall therefore forbear to dis cuss ihe topic. Nevertheless, I think proper tosav, lliat I concur w, h tlu wings of Vermont in believing, that tho overwhelming embarrassments of our people aroin a gicat incisure due lo tin; unauthorized inter ference of the Government with the currency. I be lieve it was apart of llio plan nf operations of tho ad ministration of 1S23, to make the liankofthe United .States a political engine, nnd that that institution owes its downfall to its refusal to become Ino instru ment of tho executive. I have no deposition to pal hate what all men must hold to be indefensible, the misconduct of the Hank after the government had dc elared war upon it. but it U ,to ii, n.,i. . .... tint until assailed by tho executive, it furnished "the ",UI"'-" "est currency wlucli was cvtr enjoyed by a trading people. That u currency at once equally sound and convenient will be provided by any of the substitutes which havo been recommended I do not expect, nor as I nave already intimaied.do I even hope that the next congress will accomplish any thing val iiallein the icstoraiioi, of the currency, though ' I hold the providing of a circulating medium whether metallic or representative to be not only clearly with in the power, I ut among the most imperative of the duties of Congress. I shall now, Mr. I'rcH lent and gentlemen, ask your 111 Uilgenco for closing as I began, with alittlo ego tism. I havo hitherto taken little part in active politics, though I have never shunned a frank avowal of my political sentiments, and my legislative experi ence is limited to atinglo term of service in our old council, durine one of tinn .,r.. . .1 1 11 , .. ..nirraiiui uio gen eral assembly of crmont.

Iu regard to'the general interests of my own District and State, I fiat- .-. .,.,.;, ,, 4 nomiiogctiier ignorant. I was born and have Fpent my hru among the pcupla cf Ver mont.

Hoolttd That freedom is nian'i natural birth right, Iho gift of Cod lo all his creatures, of which no 0110 can ho deprived except for violations of thi-sj law 3 which foenro tho well being of the community. Iltwlvcd Thnt civil government basils foundation in the duty nf all to protect each an I every ono in the peifuct enjoyment uf bis riiihtHof pction and proper ty, and when this object it not attained, cither tho constitution is defective or llio laws nre corrupt. licsohcd That so far ns tin eviU of slavery are countenanced by the Constitution it is our duty lo submit until in a fair and constitutional way wo can provide a remedy. So fir ai 1111 v of tho .States of this Union have sanctioned slavery, though we miy doprc cato the fact, wo clntm no rujht to interfere. Hut vvhib vyn render lo others all thu riglils to which they nre entitled by the Constitution wo claim the same measure or, lights for ourselves and will not submit to nny deprivation of litem como whence they may. Ihsohcd Tint .Slavery Is unmixed evil without any thing to cxtenu.ito or justify it, subjecting the weak lo tho oppression of llio strong, nnd corrupting the master ns well as the slave. At Whigs wo desire that freedom should bo secured to every being within the protection of tho government and protest npainst any thing and every thing that tend lo encrcaso the burdens which by the coinpromi-o of tho cjnslitution are cast upon our race , Itesoltcd That wc deprecate llic extension of poli tical power, resung on tho basis of a slave population ns nn act of hostility to the. north, destructive nf nn tional prosperity, inconsistent with tint equality of ii.im ivnieii siiouiu exist iiciw'cen 1110 nuicreui mem bers of llio Union and striking out the security for the continuance ofour republican institutions. Ilesohtd That wc regard the proposed admission of Toxns into ibis Union ns a direct violation of the rights of lliepeoplo of tliefree states, as now secured by thn constitution. It is the introduction of a power into the constitution in opposition lo the powers ves ted under it and may well be regarded ns a praclical dissolution nt the band of tho Union which binds us together. We will neither barter our rights ns free men nor consent to bo deprived of them and will hold incm ns e.ie hues who tna to t he nltenint. llcsolced That the protection of industry is one of tne ursi duties 01 government, one ot tlio leaning ob jects for repnl licnn institutions now founded. That protection isnnool'tho elements of national wealth, nnd thai without it thcie can be 110 pei uiancnt pros peri'y. llcsolced That the north have a vital interest in this great question, for without it, our fields must be come barren.or our hardy population labor for naught. Take away protection and you strike down the arm that is bared for the prosperity of tho nntion. Wc go for protection as a right, we demand it as one of the objects of finvtrnmcnt we demand it as a means of national prosperity wc demand it ns tho prico of those contributions wu have so liberally paid into the treasury of the nation. llesoltcd That the doctrines of free trade are in Iho present stnlo of our foreign commerce entirely fallacious, they nre but arguments in disguise to bring down the fieo lal or of the north to the level of the paup:r labor of Europe and llio slaves uf tho South and they who willingly adopt litem richly merit the deprivations they produce. Ilcsolted That 111 order to obtain the fullest mea sure of protection the nation requires a tariff so adjust ed thai thu duties may be equal to the current expenses of the Government, and so nrrnnged by discrimina tion as lo givo a preference in market to all the arti cles or our own growth nnd manufacture. lesolrcd That n healthy state of our domestic nfinirs requires that the incisures for protection should bo prepared with such firmness thnt all nny confide in iheir contininnce. There can bo but little activity in business until the people can have confidence in the steadiness of public measures. Mr. Warncb, Chairman of tho Committee on tho subject of a Delegate to tho Nntional Convention, reported tho nnnio of JOHN PECK, as Delegate, and SAMUEL W. KEYES as substitute.

Wo announced, in a tiostscrint. last week that tho Convention which mot hero last Ihursday had nominated tho Hon. Gt:onar. I'. lUAnsit ol this town as tho Whig candi- elatc to renrcsent this Dlsirire in it Congress. Wo this week spread before our renders, in extenso. tho nroceedinrrs nf tlin Convention. These proceedings were char acterised by groat harmony and good feeling, and tho nomination of tlio Committee) was confirmed, by a per capita vote of the whole body of Delegates, with cntiro tinnnimitv Though several of tho towns, in the moro re mote parts of tho district, -cro not repre sented, yet as a whole, tho convention wa one of tho most respectable, that wo over at tendee! on any similar occasion. Mn. Marsh may therefore be retrarded as thn first rltniro of the Whig freemen of tho District. And whet her wo regard Ins position in tho pen graphical centre of the district ; his age, in tho very bloom and vigor of lifej and the palmy stato of Ins intellectual ii5nful tho soundness of his political principles and ins ability to defend them : or his hih npr- sonal character, his unimpeachable intei'iitv. and tho acknowledged purity of his life, we nave no hesitation in saying that tlio choico of the Convention was tho most fortunate- and judicious that could possibly havo been made. 1 n savins' tlns.wo of course mean nn disparagement to tho other candidate They wore all good men, and good Whigs. limy Had all rendered tho nartv valnahh- and important services, and. wu havo nn doubt, they will all cheerfully support tho genueman wiio lias received the nomination. In regard to tho qualifications of .Mn. Mahsh for tho office fur which hu has been nominated, we havo yet to meet the first man who questions them. Even bis political enemies acknowledge his preeminent abili ties, and the commanding weight of his per sonal character. For a full exposition of his political opinions we refer our readers to his speech, a correct report of which will bu found among tho proceedings of the Con vention. On the two great questions of tho Aiioi.mo.v or si.Avr.nv and i'uotixtio.n to American i.Aiton his sentiments will meet a cordial respose in tho breast of every true son of New England. Whilo his views nn tho subject of thu currency and tho doctrine ol instructions will also bo fmind to bo in unison with those of the great body of North ern Whins. Uut tlio speech rerniires nn w i i - comments. It will speak for itself, and tlm crowded stale ofour columns admonishes us to bo Inief. In conclusion, therefore, wc say, from tho spirit of harmonv and union which animated tho members of tho Con vention, wo can havo no doubt that Mn. ahsii will bo triumphantlv cloctcd-nnd, in tho event of his election, we shall havo a Representative of whom not only Vermont, but New England may be proud. THE OLD BAY STATE. Tho Whigs of Old Massachusetts held a State convention at Worcester, on Wednes day, tho 7tb i list- to noniinata Slate officers lur the ensuing political year. Gov. Davis was renominated with groat unanniity, hut declined. 1 ho Hon. Guoncc N. Unices of Pittsficld, was then nominated for Gov. eruor, bo having received 700 out of tho ir.Q votes which were cast. Mr. Briggshas been a representative in Congress for the last twelve years from the Beikshiro Dis trict, and lias long been known throntiliout New England, ns ono of tho most vigilant, industrious, and faithful members of tho Massachusetts Delegation. Tho Boston Atlas speaks of him as follows. Tho first part of the paragraph, wo can endotso from our own personal knowledco of tho man. "His honesty and sincerity of purpose his lulelity to Ins duties, both public and private, havo never been questioned, even by his political opponents, while his private virtues havo won lnm tho lovo and esteem of a host of personal friends. On all tho great questions of moral and philanthropic icform lio has taken an active part hut moderation candor, forbearance and perfect fairness towards thoso who differed from him in their views, havo over been most conspicuous in his wholu course. Thojo who know him best havo ever most highly esteemed him, both in public nnd privalu life. Six times has ho been elected to Congress by his im mediate neighbors, among whom ho has al ways lived, and it is a reniarkablo fact, that although Berkshire has most generally given Locofoco majorities for both candidatos,Mr. Briggs has never onco failed to roccivo a majority of tho votes of that county. As was well said by Hon. Abbott Lawrence, at tho Convention, Mr. Briggs lias been pre eminently the architect of his own fortunes. In early lifu tho labor of hia own hands eirned him lili daily bread, nd tlnco thonj ho has ever distinguished himself hy his do - volion lo thu cntno of American Labor. Hois thu best candidate that could havo been selected, sinco our Into most cstimnblo Cliiof Magislrnto is nut of tho question, nnd he will be clcctul." Tho Hon. Joii.V Runt), of Yarmouth. was nominated at tho samo time for Lieut. Governor. For t tec nty four years Mr. Reed has been known as tho " faithful Rep resentative from Cape Cod." Tho Atlas . ' s snrvirns says of him. "His labors and his services :,. u.ne r r ri . in behalf of our commerce, of our fisheries. ami of nil our interests on tho seaboard, havo ntadu his name for a quarter of a cen tury an object of regard and respect to all. Tho claims of tho hills of Berkshire and the sands of Barnstable the extreme East and the farthest West havo been both regarded at tho Worcester Convention. Tho PEO PLE next November will solemnly ratifv tho contract of union at tho Ballot Box." FOURTH OF JULY. Tho anniversary of our National Inde pendence will bo celebrated in this village by tho Young Men of Chittenden County gene rally, without respect to parly. Tlio exor cises will consist of an Oration, reading of tho Declaration of Independence, and Mu sic. A National Salulo of 2G guns will bo! ureu ai sun rise, l no procession will bo formed under Col. Cnssius P. Peck, Marshall of tho day, and bo escorted by the Burling ton Light Infantry, under Captain Joseph Hatch, and by such other Independent Com panies as may wish to participate in tho Cele bration. Arrangements will bo complninl and a programme of tho exorcises of tliu day win appear in tho next paper. A circular will also be sent to gentlemen in tho various towns who havo been appointed Marshalls. By order of tho Conimittco of Arrange ments.
