Resolved, That unless the British Gov crnment shall immediately abandon her unjust commercial restrictions, mike amplo reparation for her unlawful aggressions upon the proporty mid citizens of the United Slates restoro our captive seamen, and make full atonement for their long and laborious confinement, that a longer forbearance in our government would bo a base surrender of the rights of the nation, in opposition to the sentiments and feelings of the great body of the American people ; and that nothing short of nu ACTUAL DECLARA TION OF WAR will satisfy a people indig nant at seeing their rights disregarded and gov. crnment insulted. And wo here pledge our. solves to our government and to the world, that as we love peace, so wo iovo indepondenco and liberty in the inaititcnatico of which we are ready to resign our lives and our fortunes and that, at.thu call of our injurod country wo will draw the sword with the spirit of freemen, and never return it until justice is satisfied. 0.

Information having arrived that a declaration of war has patFod both Houses of Congress against tho King of Great Britain, and it being considered thai this Ilng.ido includes a large frontier country, scantily inhabited, and that (nose settlers wlio are in remote and lonely pla ccs may bo subicct to the ravages of the cnemv. and perhaps immediately require the aid of some part ot tliu militia ot the lirigade under my oinmand : and considering also that at this in teresting period of our public concerns, it is ol the highest importance that the military force of me country siiouiil Do arrayed in the best man nor our resources will enable us to do: it is deemed proper to have the several regiments in this Brigade reviewed at an earlier period than has bucn usual, it being expected that the oili ccim and soldiers will cheerfully submit to this partial inconvenience, tho reasons for tho mca sure being thus laid before '.hem. It ishorcfnro ordered that the several Reci incuts bl'tbo !ld Brigado and '1th Division of the militia of this Slate, bo reviewed on the regi mental parades, in the order and on the days following, to wit: the first, commanded by Col. John Rankin, on Monday the 1,'lth tho third, under tho command of Col. Levi Stevens, on Tuesday, tho Mlh iho fifth, commanded by Maj. Rufus Stuart, on Wednesday the 15th tho second, commanded by Cul. Edward Filield, on Thursday, thu lGtli and tlio fourth, comman ded by Uul. Kbenr. S. Bailey, on the 17th of Ju ly ne.t. And tho Brigadier General does most express ly recommend to the commanding officers of the respective regiments, to cause to be impressed upon tho officers and soldiers under their com mand, the absolute necessity of having the arms which they do possess in the best possible state of preparation for actual use. It is also further recommended to haio tlio town magazines ex amined, mid tlio laiv unforced against delin quents, and further, it is advised that the com manders ofthosevcr.il regiments recommend it to their captains to endeavor to cause every sol dier to keep himself supplied witli gome portion of ammunition, and especially with balls suited to the calibre of his musket. J. MATTOCKS, Brig. Gon. Dated at Peachatn iioth of June, 1812. TRUI3 DIJMOCRACY-KUUAL RIGHTS. The following is seasonable. It is taken from u speech of Gen. Mattocks, delivered in tho constitutional convention of '36. Among these nrsnilants, tho gentleman from Wen I'airlce, (Mr. Nilcs,) seems to be tho most conspicu ous. Itc seems to supposes that there is a constoracy even in this honorable body, between aristocracy and wealth, to palm a Senate upon tho democrats and the pour lie calls upon tho democracy of this cenvenlinn 10 rnny qihi resist tms ciicroacumriit upon ineir privi leges; mid to show that ho utters the cry in good faith ho has declared " that be is a democrat that he tuck ed in democracy (horn his mother's breast)" and the gentleman from Roynllon, (Mr. Collnmcr.) who intro duced tho resolution, nut being willing to leave his op- Sonent on the vnntnee ground in this particular, bia ecn pleased to Bay " that he was rocked in the cradlo of Liberty.", Thcso declarations have mado me also pregnant with an nmliiiinn to announce tho patriotism or my birth. Sir, I was horn tho4th of March, 1777, quite as soon alter the declaration of Independence as was decent and cosistcnt with havimr no Colonial blood in my veins. Hut because tlio United States of .North America selected my birth day for the fedcrcl government to commence, forsooth I must he colled n Federalist, an. I ranked among Ihc aristocrats, as if I was to Maine Tor this unsolicited comnlinicnt.

Men of property and men of no properly have and ought to have equal riehts to olc and to bu voted for. and to cniov cverv other political and civil privileges this is equably, this is democracy. What, would the gentleman deter men from being industrious and economical, by ren dortns it odious for a man to have mote property than his neighbors 1 Is this moral, is this statesmanlike? He who is born lo an estate, may, if he pleases, spend his time in literary or other leisurc,but ho who has no patrimony or other property, and docs not attempt by honest industry in some lonn to acquire property, as a provision against Ficknris or old age, is a Isiy rascal ond should bo desni'cd by every industrious man.

We wish to undeceive those who may listen to such a syren song to lull them to sloop. 7'iio truth is, that while the Loco leaders wish to keep tins question out 01 sight, it is me question that must bo settled alter all.

The Paris correspondent of the Washington Intelligencer, speaking ol the aiiairs of Spain, gives sonic particulars as lo the health ana position of Mr. Irving, the American Minister to Mad rid. He says that diiect intelligence had been re ceived from him, and that tin "had so far recovered from the malady with which ho was confined for sev eral weeks, as to he able to psss day abroad on his feet and in his carriage, observing the popular excite ment and the preparation for defence. He felt not tho least onnrchensions for himself: Indeed, even the Uritish Indies looked lo his hotel for refuge in case of an ass'ilt Iroin the troops nt the gates.

The vonnir Omen and her sister would gladly hive put themselves under the shelter ot the American Legation, rather than remain expos ed in tin- palace as a prize to the victors in a desparato street allray. My inlorinani mentions that the only American whom ho knew to bo in Madrid, and often wilh Mr. Irving, was Mr. Sumner, of Boston, a gen tleman distinguished for personal merit and extensive travil.

I ranUtn .iHtsencer, TO ABOLITIONISTS. The Loco Foco papers, in different parts of the Slate, are denouncing JOHN MAT TOCKS, with great bitterness nntl ferocity, because lie is an AH0L1TI0N1ST. It is true that Gen. M. is nn abolitionist of the most inflexible. and uncompromising charac ter. Ho never has concealed his senti ments on the subject of the accursed system of slavery. Ho has always proclaimed liis abhorrence of it on every snitablu occasion. Ho closed a letter to his constituents, Inst winter, declining a rcnomination, ns a Can didate for Congress, with the following hold and manly sentiment. "Finally, inn v the nil-wise brio", wbocontro's the "destiny of nations, protect and perpetuate our free "institutions: and mav llic God of Heaven hasten the " lime when SLA VKRV shall exist only in tho IN- "FKRNAL HICG10NS, tthtro it originated, and "where it is illlhcled for CHIMF, nnd not for COL "Oil." JOHN MATTOCKS. This languago is certainly explicit ciioul'Ii -to justify tho Loco Focos in charging Gen eral MATTOCKS with being an AIIOLI TIONIST. But is this a sufficient reason why lie should not be elected Governor of Vermont? Will the honest and consistent friend's of ll'e LIBERTY party ait quietly by and sec the Loco Focos ride rough shod over Gen. M. because ho has always bcon an ABOLITIONIST ? If so uo have greatly mistaken their temper and spirit. Tho Spirit of tho Ago says Mr. Kellogg, the Loco candidate for Governor, denires no Abolitionist to vote for Aim. We presume not. ns it is Generally known that Kellogg is opposod to abolition, root and branch. Ho j would not bo likely tncreiore to cxpeci - olitionists to support lum for Governor. We shall see, however, whether Gen. MAT TOCKS is lo be put down in Vermont, bo- cause, in the language of the Loco Focos, h U In ' ULTRA ABOLITIONIST I" INFAMOUS. The Spirit of the Ago, a prominent Loco oco paper printed at Woodstock in this State, mid owned and conducted by tho Ty ler Post Master at nthat place, is making it self utterly infamous by its reckless assaults pon General Mattocks and his family. Not satisfied with the atrocious libels It has uhlislicd against tlio General himself, its ditor has sacrilegiously invaded tho domes tic circle, ond, shamelessly violating every principle of decency, lias sought to brand with infamy Mrs. Mattocks and her ehll- Ircn! Tho unscrupulous calumniator who controls that paper, without the least parti- lt; of evidence to justify him in his course, lias boldly asserted that General Mattocks nd tlio lady with whom he has lived for moro than thirty years, irtticHcrer bctntnar- icd ! Nor was this monstrous slander ut tered carelessly or hastily, in a moment of po- ttcal excitement. It was the product of the cool, ueliticrate, malicious liliellcr. it was put forth, and has been thrice repeated, not only without tlio least particlo of evidence to sustain it, but against the clearest and most convincing proof of its utter falsity. In tho first place iho Loco Foco papers which are published in his own neighborhood, had ad mitted that General AI. was a man of irre proachable character in his private life. Would this admission havo been mado by such papers as the Vermont Patriot, and tho North Star, both leading Loco Foco journals, and next door neighbors of Gen. M. if tho in famous assertion of tho editor of the Ago had been true 1 In tho next place Gen. Mat

tocks had oftun been a candidate for office and had uniformly been sustained by a large majority of the pcoplo of his own county, though they were politically opposed to him, and his own town, on one occasion, had sus tained him for a high and responsible office, with but one dissenting vote ! And the last time ho run for Congress, (three years ago) he was elected in a district which, the vear before, had given over thirteen hundred Lo co Foco majority ! Such was tlio man against whom tlio reckless libeller of the Ago opened his batteries. Nor is this all. Mrs. Mat tocks, who is equally a sufferer wilh her hus band, from this infamous Loco Foco false hood, is known to somo of the most respec table families iu this place as an estimable la dy, a devoted and exemplary christian. For nearly twenty years she has been a member of tho Methodist Episcopal church, and has adorned her profession by devoted piety.' She has a son, (tlio Rev. Mr. Mattocks, of Kocsovillo) who is known in this town as a liglily respectable clergyman of tho Calvinis- tic Congregational Church. And ynt neither her sex, nor her exemplary character, nor regard for the feelings of her children can restrain tho inhuman traduccr of the Age from his brutal assaults upon this christian mother, and her family, and the church with which she is connected. We should scorn to attempt to make political capital out of such un infamous nnd unnatural assail! Yot wo cannot refrain from calling upon all honest and well disposed citizens upon tho friends of morality and regulated liberty and decency, without reference to party, to show by their votes next Tuesday, that they will not tolerate such atrocious ruffianism as this, We know that party ties are strong and diffi cult to bo broken but wc also know there is an innato love of iusticc m " ihc pre.it heart of iho PEOPLE," a " feeling of chiv alry," " an instinctive senso of honor " that " prompts every true hearted MAN to take sides with the party defending itself against black tongued calumny nnd detraction,"espe cially when that party is a Trowai. Tho -Vonlpelier Watchman, which is printed in Goti. M.'s district, thus notices the infamous attack of the Age. "Tho charne is this, thourrh rrarnishod with I accompaniments which wo will not print even by way of quotation, that Gen. Mattocks and the estimable and pious lady who for more than t.'iirly years has lived with him as a wife, neicr lir married! Thus boldly do these reckless ficnundrels invade the sanctuary of pnvato life, and to gratify party malice, hesitate not to Jsy their polluting hands upon the fair fame of as worthy a woman as is to be found in any com munity, and brand her very children with dis. (rrace ! Nay, even more for nearly twenty years has sho been a member of a largo and worthy church, (tho Methodist,) and adorned her profession by devoted piety and through her, thcso base libellers would impugn tlio church. Nor does the community in which iGon. Mattocks lives, escape, for they have re- Ipcatcdly nnd once, almost unanimously (with I but one dissenting voice,) sustained him for I high and rcsnonsiblo stations, let this whole- I sale and utterly unjustifiable slander of tho la dy, her children, and tho church, (to say noth ing of Gen. Mattocks,) is inadoet-m icithuut in Irestmalum. No lanuano can be too severe in I reprobatinjr such utter injustice as this uttcrin; I of infamous charges, without even innuirim; I about their truth or falsity ; but wo need not enlarge upon that, bumce It to say that John Mullocks am! his present wife uxre married on the -Uhilny of Sejtlemlier, 1810. Wo mako this declaration by authority, and the locofoco edit ors may govern themselves accordingly." Watchman. IMPOSITION! The True Democrat makes a garbled quo tation from un urticlo in reference to the revolution in Texas, which pppcarcd in the Frco Press somo ten years tigo, and says II. B. Stacy was tho author of it. This is untrue. Mr. Stacy did not write tho article ; nor had tho T. D. any reason for so as serting. But had it been fairly quoted, nei ther Mr. Stacy nor any other lionorablu man would bo called upon to disclaim il. Thu article was tin honest appeal to the people against tho attempt then making to create a NEW Slave State, to bo ultimately annex ed to tho Union. After stating the true na ture of the question ut issue, the writer pro coeds, "Wo should much prefer that Texas should occupy ncr present posuion as tne province o n spaniau cm pire, than that she shoald bo annexed loan Anglo Sax on republic, to perpetuate a SCOUlltiK and a CURSI' upon this Garden of the World.

Then follows the paragraph quoted by the Democrat, disclaiming any desire or inten tion to interfero with the " constitutional rights of tlio South" hut qualified by the following application of the subject under consideration; nnd this part of the sentence bo it remembered, the True (?) Democrat has tho meanness to suppress : " But tho a'lhirsof Tcxasintroduco an entirely new clement into this matter; they roiao an entirely new qucsiiun-, mm wnue wu sun maintain mat the pcopli of the Nonh have no riant none whatever. to in terlere wilh tho existing institutions of Iho Southern states, tney nave a deep moral interest in the gener al oueslion of slavery, and a hiidi civil duty inrnm bent on them with referenco to tho precise question now iiivoivea in mo contest ot l exas wun .llcxico.

By this, we do not mean, th-.st people will feel as rich as they did in '36; but that there will be more real pros perity substantial success in business, and general stability in all the departments of Trade. Of this wc feel confident. Thero is every indication of tlio budding of such a state of things, independent of tlio striking facts which are contained in these statistics.' But there is another feature in this matter to bo looked at. Not onlv have our imports from England decreased, but our exports to' bngtantJ have augmented. The import of bark, says Wilnicr's Eu ropean Times, has increased between 1833 and 1842,from 18,4i!9 cwts. to 27.G48 cwts. ; that of salted beef from S09 cvvls. to 7,024 cwts. ; that of butter front 1 cwt. to 3,769 cwts. ; that of cheese from 9 cwts. to 14, 097 cwls. : that of wheat from nnthinir m b 15,111 quarters ; that of wheaten flour from 35,659 cwts. to 381,066 cwts. ; that of hams from 72 cwts. to 1,133 cwts. ; that of lard from nothing to 26,555 cwts. ; that of pork from 1 ,352 cwts. to 13.40S cwts. ; that of rice from 24,114 quarters to 40,450 quar ters ; that of clover seed from 350 cwts. to 22,632 cwts. ; thai of tobacco fro ji 30,748, 317 lbs. lo 3S,61S,012 lbs. ; that of cotton wool from 2S7,505,75S lbs. lo 414,030,779 lbs.; that of turpentine from 322,486 cwts. to 408,330 cwts. ;t of SHEEP'S and tha WOOL from 334.57S lbs. to 561,028 lbs. "With rcjard to shipping, the American tonago (entered) has tncrea-ed lrom 229.SG9 to 319,521 ; anJ the Utitish lounge from 114,200 to 193, 745 tons." These aro highly important facts, and should bo remembered as having a direct bearing upon tho great question which will be decided by tho people next Tuesday. That question is " WILL VERMONT SUSTAIN THE TARIFF 1" Tho Lundon Times in view of tho fact which wc Imvo presented above makes tha follovving significant remarks. "After miKinE every allowance for iho more than "usual embarrassment of trade in the United States, "in 1312, the first part of the above return cannot bs "regarded as being otherwise than most unfavorable "lo the prospects of F.nglih industry, whilst the "second shows lhal t!ie balance of trade it turning "against this country, in a manner which rendcrsil " doubtful whether wo shall not shortly hare to pay for "American cotton in tpecie instead of qooas No "thinsbut a very great revival of iho demandsfor " Knglish manufactures can save us from this evil I "and, without a reform of the American tariff, thero "is very Utile hope of any revival at all equal to the " necessities of tho case, but tr must consent to make "liberal concessions if ice wish or hope to rcctit them." Tho intelligent friend of Protection will mark tho evil which is so much feared by this British editor, viz : that Euglatid will havo to pay CASH instead goods for tho produce she will bo obliged to purchase of this country ! What a calamity that would bo in tho estimation of thoso frco trndo Loco Focos A'ho have been so clamorous against tho nrcsont Tariff, anil who are so boisterous in their threats to repeal it ! England would bo obliged to pay Qj-CASH, instead of goods for American produco ! Hereafter let tho opponents of Protection (and they embrace the whole Loco Foco party) ba called tho British party. No moro appro priate namo could bo devise!! for them. THE BALLOT UOX ! Examino the Ballot Box before the votes are deposited next Tuesday. A few years ago twenty or thirty Loco Foco votes wero found snugly rolled up in ono corner of th box in this town. These votes had probably been smuggled in by ihc Loco Focos thu night before. Let tho ficcnicn of the county bo on their ground ngain&t n similar fraud nrxl Tuesday.
