Thnt deinrnjcnicnt wasan effect rather than a cause, nltlin icli in its turn it be came an iflieient cause in nsjcravatinn thoiiiisforiunis of the country, by appending the operations iif liibor and depreciating ilo productions by nddinj! to the weight of indebtedness and tiua civing additional force to the original cnusi; of all. Mad not your iof porta vasily exceeded your exports, no fureicn debt would have been created, no call fur specie for expor tation, no pressure upon your Iaiikiii2 instituiion, and of course no dernncemeni of v ur currein'V. The Slate dcbis, too, have eoino in tor their share of the obloquy, Hut ihn conttnclinir llitse debt did not cnnsliltile lie eld. It was Ihe form ill whieh the loins were received in perishable fabrics, winch fur nished no litems nf rrpavinent, to the di-pnragitmnt of your own dmni'sli industry. You had. to n irreat exieni, abandoned inur nroleciivo nolii'v. and thus inviled Iho inlrmlnciinn of foriijin fabrics instead of nisi wnicti would have irvrl as a oasis 01 ynur cur rency. The whole amount of Stale loans added but tulle, if auv thuiL'. lolhubasisi and when lluiday of payment arrive I, ilia pressure transcended the ability and the menus of your monetary institutions Here, in this abandonment, was tlio primary and rmucni rrror. How, then, is the mistake to lie rcmcdird I The remedy is n'ltiousj reJnco your importations, not merely 10 the standard of your exportation, but you must, lor the present, to below it. in order that it por tion of the pro luelioii of ynur industry, the only true source of wealth, may be applied to the c.tineuih ment of your debt. Sir, 1 freak with particular reference to tl-.o cotlon planter of the South. Oite to him 'he Advantage, rnjiyrd by the wool grower of my own State, of a domestic market. Save him from the cons'-ipiiMices nf this univrr-al indebtedness, bolh individual and national, which tends, more than nny thin else, to ilcprrcnie Ins rrrat staple; fornothtno has a more derided tendency to depress agricultural produclion thin a distressed, embarrassed, and neces sitous condition of the whole class of producers', nnd save him front thee overwhelminc revulsion, oriinaiinsin lite toreiun market, whieh fall with such tremendous and peculiar force upon linn. Sir, this free liade pohev, the fnuitiiorcmedy of the Senator fiom South Cntoiina, will only aucravalc the evil. We Itavo imported too nineh'atrea ly. The Senator says, exiptid vour impni unions still furlbet. You are in dibt i hi. advices to cotiiracl mote. You ned all your means to meet tins ilcbi ', lie advises to anticipate thusu inejus, as you have clone heretofore, by tree importation, winch' shall swallow them up, and leave your debt where it it; his policy is to ndd to your incoma by increasing sour expenditure. He dv'eits to the laws of trade and the theories of w ri ters on political iTiMio.n v , ne iiihIsih mat you lannnt export unless yr.u import; and argues that by in creasing your importation vuu inc.- ase your cxporta trail. I am aw.ire, su, that commerce n but nn ex change of roHitiioioties. but circumstance" may and often do destroy the cq iihbrium of foreign trade; and the nation Vhich find ilBtdf cmbirr.asvd from that caus- must take tits proper measures !o restore it. He will fin I no writer who lays down tlio doctiine that a nation can extend its exportation in lfmiiely by increasing its imports ; or that it is necessary, in order to preserve your foreign trade, that you exceed in your importation the amount of your exports, or who recomni'.-nds it as a mat'erof national economy. Tim SenaH't insists that the Souilt ale the exporting psriion of the country, and therefore the importers; an.i mlers iro.n tins (.nut very accurately, in my ju.ig ment) lhat they are the principal consumers; nnd he n!is thai ihev be permitted todo as they plcne with , their own. I o this certainly, "'"c cm be no ohji-c- , Hon. It is expected by the Inends of protection that thsconimojoliesof oilier countries will be received in : exchange for our own productions expotted; but we know that your exportation mini be limited to the . demand abioad ; and wo desire that your importation should be graduated accordingly. And hero, sir, is the answer In the objection that we desnc the exlinc- lion of foreign commerce. We do not desire to de- , elroy our foreign Ira Jo, but to restore ils cqunbriuni I to p'aco it upon its legitimate fooling, as nn inter-1 change of commodities to make it conducive lo na- . tioml wealth nnd prosperity lo Ion oil lis excesses in lite article of importation, which experience ha nown lone so talal to our pro-peniy. Nor docs the protective policy, properly minimis lered, lend to the destruction . loreign commerce. Tnere wilt always be n competition between the do mestic nnd foreign manufacturer. Coul.l you throw the wholo American market into the hands of the former, and make Inm the exclusive producer for I American consumption, twelto months would not copb! Dcioro nc woum encounter a compenuoii iroin abroad. Thai competition would ruw out of your fuieign commerce, necessarily, inevitably, and oul of the necessity of receiving the commodoin.s of other nations in exchange for your productions exported. And here, eir, permit mo to ad veil lo the very falia eious apprehension which has been presented, a a i sort of bug! cir, that the tendency ol the protective system is touiiiia up an aristocracy oi uiiuuiaciiiring wealth, to which the whole country shall be subject. Such a result cannot be brought al out. It wi:l be prevented by foreign coinpetilion. The duties impo- nd by the act of IS 12 are little more i lan an equiva lent for the relative cheapness of ptodiution in Eu rope; and should tho timiutncturcra of th.s country sue1; to accumulate large profits by mean of unrea sonable r c.-s, thoy would bo t once unJtrsold l-y those of Europe. This cause co-nperaling with the domestic competition, so ready to start up when nny invest nent becomes profilnlil, will be effectual to keep down prices, and prevent an undiio accumulation of wealth arnjiig the in miifacuring class. Mr. Picfident, n was not my purpose to discuss the merits of iheacl of IS 12, cousilcred as a mere reve nue incisure, nor the edict lo bo produced upon the finances by its repeal. 1 leave those subjects m abler nnd belter hands :ho-e of tlio distinguished chair man of the Coniimtico on Finance. .My design has been to vindicate the pioticlne policy, n exhibit! d in ihetarill'aeiof 1812. And whai, in substance, does that policy propose? Sir, It prosposes, m view of our recent disasitrs nnd the cause whit h lias produ ced them, lo biing back Ihe trade of tins country to lis Icji un ite fooling to li mt o ir expen litiiro to our meins to increase the piojocuon of labor nnd lis vlin by unersfyiui; lhat labor, nnd I y diverting a portion of it from u pursuit already overstocked, io oth.-r and ill ire vnluablcnnd useful employment, and thus developing more fully the les mrees. d the coun try.

I-' a re. currence to thin vi'ionary policy of free trade should give them another taste nf its fruiis. One cxperi ment of the kind is enough for one generation they can hardly desire ns repetition. Such, sir, m brief is the protective policy lhat sys tem of politic d economy upon which Iho whole abu sive vocabulary nf the l.nglish language, copious as il is, has been exhausted. Such is this "ncew-jco"' policy, which hasdrswu forth from a certain quarter threats of a disssolulion of the Union. Mr. President, I di I hopo that this nibj-et, of such titnl importance, would bo diseased with calmness, with col deliberation. It is with Infinite reurel that I have wilnessed appeals to Ineal interests end local rr'JoVe, and pr -1111101111 in rtferenc to our present happy Union, which no true friend of hii country can coniempinio without pain. Sir, if honorable Sena- iors vatite too union, ana uesiro to preserve 11, iei tlieiu legislate wilh a catholic spirit consider them selves the representatives ol a irreat and united peo ple, hating in charge their gtcat and common, al though diversified internals, nnd not n representing local nnd conflicting interests and opinions. While 1 have the honor of a seat here, I cannot be brought to consider myself the mere representative of a State, having in charge its peculiar interests only, to be re garded ns nntagonist to those of all others, nnd pro moted at Ihetr pxnensm but mv di si'-n nnd mirnnsr shall be to act for all, to legislate for the welfare of each and every section, and thus promote the prospe rity ol all. It is this sort nf union, carried out in har monious notion here, which I wish to preserve an union cemented by n community of interest and pur pose, and perpetuated l.y mutual good will nnd mu tual confidence. Let tbn oi-milp ol this country, and every portion of them, understand and feel that the interest of every section is here considered nnd pro tected, that no' sacrifice is be made by any except when demanded by the common weal, nnd that a patriotic and catholic spirit guides your delibetntion nnd vout action, and von have, in their confidence in 1 he utnernment ni Mipir choice, the stroncest assu rance of its stability, lint satisfy them that each Senator on this Moor acts for bis own section only; coniince them, by your arguments nnd speeches here, ihat the interests of different seelionsof this country are conflicting nnd irreconcilenhle, or if nnt, thai you in your legislation will so treat them ; that Congress is but the arena upon which iIiifc riinl intens's nte brought into conflict and the weaker section, which ever it may le, will soon talk of oppression, and soon threaten dissolution. But, -it, attached as lam to this Union, I cannot eonrnl thnt Congress, in the exercise of its legal and constitutional powers, shall be driven from n policy which it shall deem essential to tbn prosperity and happiness of this people, by threats nf dissolution from any quarter. If, in the honest exrrcisc of its discretion. Congress should deem the protective policy a mista ken policy, and see fit toabindon It, I would stand by the Constitution, nnd scikn remedy in the forms n prescribes. I wou'd appeal to the sound Judgment of the American penp'e, nnd look to a future Congress frn wiser and better policy. Hut, sir, it we are to act hrrcunder duress if we are to bo detained from ultpiing puch measure, ns we diem the only course of policy which can resuscitate this people, anil re alms their fillcn fortunes if this policy or the Union must be abandoned, let tlio Union go the policy I will not abandon. When the peri'd shall arrive that I (lis body shall be driven trout the disehnrge of its duly by such an influence, vou will have neither Gov Crmnnl nor Union left. The one will be a lifeless form, the other but a name. You will have no mo live to keep together, hut the wretched consolation of companionship in misfottune and disgrace. If the honorable Senator from South Carolina will advert to the appal'ing picturo which he presented of the deso lation whi- h is to I e visited upon New lngUud when this pohey of protection I- abandoned, nnd will pre sent to inc the nlternativc nf dissolution on the one hand, and the urrendcr of the constitutional powers ofthia Government, nnd the niter ruin and dcs'dalion of my native i.-ud on the other, he wi I pardon the de claration thnt if the Union is to be preserved only at such sacrifice., in God's mine let disunion come. Hut, sir, I have no fears on thie subject. Much is said of a certain spirit prevailing at the North. This, too, is said to. threaten the integtlty if tins union It IS s li I llierp is finnliexm nml full t tin rp. If so I I regret it. Would to God there were' fa in lie sin nnd folic no whetc rNe in this country. There will be every where periods of excitement and extravagance. It is idle to alierunt to preieu!

The peculiar institution of the Pniiih. nnd the peculiar iiistdulions of nny oilier people in which ihey take an interest, thev will discuss friely and boldly. Thu enjoyment of their own opinion, nnd the. free expression nf that opinion, upon any i:rent question of moral right, of philanthropy, or political expediency, is a right which they will never surrender, Hut I know, nlso. lluir attachment in i lie Conslilu- uon and the Union. It is nn aitac'nnent which no spiru of fanaticism can overcome. They are a propln devilled to law and order. They know thirown right.-, and they know nnd respect the riuhts of othi r. 'I here will be no unnutlimizcd inn-iferenen wilh the powers of self-government, conceded to the people of the South. Thev have n veneration for the Cnii'titu- tbn, and willnol violate its guarantees. And I asuic ;h0 Senator lhat he need fiel no alarm from ihn source no saerilegi ills hand from that quarter will be laid upon the altar. I have ns lilile fear, ft, of threats from another qnaiter. I know lint patriotism nf the honorable Senator himself. I know the pitiioiim of Irs con- sliluencv. They ate not yet prepared lo dissolve this i...:. i , ,. l 7ho period of returning sanity will nrri've; they will iuiiwii uiiciii. r.vciien itou uasiy inev inuv ne. nui pauae ticiore ine ratal work is commenced. I have full confi lence that they will submit to the will ol ihe majority, constitutionally exptessed. Tne Senator will permit meto go furdier : I am confident tint the periol is not fir distant when they will bo satisfied that iho policy which I now ndvocatei the true policy of the coiin'ry, and when they will unite wilh me in sustaining it. -ilr niicitif involution, cotnn Irom what source they may, are but idle wind. We may talk of dissolution we may bluster nnd threaten, hut tint man does not live, nt least in this country, who dares ba tho first to lift hi- hand to execute the threat. Ii wa with infinite regret lhat 1 heard the declara tion of the hnnninhlc Senator from South Carolina, thai if he f liled in his cfTirta lo proslralo this system of nolxf, he would hlinke off the dust of hi feet as a tesliinony ngainst us, and leave these Halls forever. Sir, I trust ihn Senaiot will reconsider that resolution.

That he will remain nt his post, .and none with ine in sustainina the Coniituion and the iii'litutions of Ihe country.

We liavo hardly dared to hnpo for another rally liko that ol 1840; but if the accounts that reach nsfrom somo ofthe principal coun ties of the State aro to bu taken as indica tions ofthe whole, we shall see moro people hern on Wednesday next, than we did on tho memorable 25th, four years ago. Not that we anticipate the samo display of log cabins, nnd olher emblems, which, like Jonah's gourd, sprang into existence at the bidding of Loco-Foco insolenco ; but the same lion hearted spirit which prompted thu American people to rise in their majesty and vindicate j tho " log-cabin " dwellers against tho taunts and snoers of supercilious cormorants who know not Joseph, still remains. Every man who buckled on tho sword in '40, slill wears it upon bis thigh, and is determined, ready, e.igrr for the fight, which is soon to realize to the country those rich rewards of patriotic action which have been lost lo us through the perfidy of one man alone, whom lo name in comparison with Judas Iscariot, would bo down right slander upon that ancient imper sonation of treachery. Tiie masses are mov ing, and the people will again march to vic tory. A friend at Brandon writes us that they are all wide awake in that county, and will rally strong. He says, We had a meeting "of our Clay Club lust evening, (somo hun " drcd ladies being present,) and your paper " of tills week was read with the finest effect. " Tho proceedings of your public meeting "and your cditori.il courtesy have probably " had the effect to add half to our delegation " to tho State Convention. We shall turn " out stronger, much, than wo did in 1840, 11 ns they will also in the towns around us. " From Leicester, where thev sent but fuur " or five in 1840, they will send now from " 30 to 50." A similar state of things exists in Addison county, nnd we have good tidings from the battle field of Bennington. The following appeal to the whigs of Windsor County will indicate something of tho spirit of their ope rations on tlio east side nf the mountain. WHO TUCF.S THE BANNER?

Tho Whigs of Bmlington, through the kind assistance of the ladies, arc now pre pared with tho banner which is to he award ed to the County which makes thn best turn nut at the Convention, nnd their enly regret is that '.heir utmost efforts must fall fir short of tho deserts of thoso to whom this noble emblem will be given. The County which shall outstrip ils numerous competitors in rallying to (he glorious standard of the in comparable Kentuckian and the noble Jer soymanto the standard of prosperity, union and good government, will deserve and receive the hearty congratulations and warm thanks of the Whigs of Vermont and thn Union; and were the Convention elsewhere, and our own County a competitor, we should ask for il no prouder title than that of "the banner County of Vermont." To bo a whig of that sole State that hath never blench ed before tho poison simoon of Jacksoniau ism and Van Biuenism, is enough alone to make a Vermnntcr proud, but to have outstiipped all its competitors in such a stalo, in noble and disinterested enthusiasm fur tlio triumph of the right, will bu a distinction which we shall almost envy the successful County.

June 20, 1914, Most cordially do we join in this invita tion, and beg to assure theso gray-haired sires, one and all, that it would afford us in finite satisfaction lo minister lo the enjoy ment of a goodly number on this occasion. Of thn one hundred who honored us wilh their presence four years since, one half, doubtless, aro already enrolled with the il lustrious dead ; and the infirmities of four score and ndd years, admonish the writer of the above, that few, at most, aro the oppor tunities of this kind which remain to him. To him, to us, and lo all, therefore, would it be a most happy consummation to enjoy the presence of every old so'dier in the State.

THE FLAG-STAFF went up in fine sljle on Tuesday, under the superintendence of that whole-hearted whig William Kane, or "Billy the Riger," us he is moro famil iarly known along the borders of the lake.

Mr. Jewelt has heretofore been a staunch supporter of Jackson and Van B li re u, but, we take il for granted, repudiates Polk. This information but corroborates our other accounts ; but it will be doubly gratify ing to Mr. J's old friends here, to be thus cheered from such a source. BOLTING IN PENNSYLVANIA. A large meeting of tho Democratic parly was convened at Philadelphia on Monday week to consider tlio subject of the Presi dency. After full discussion, tlio following preamble and resolutions wero adopted by an overwhelming vote. " Whereas, it become every Democrat fearlessly lo speak his mind in relation to the creat questions connected with the approaching Presidential contest.
