Jjxcc 3trc00, UlltMNUTO.V, Vt. FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 2, 1817. " In THE DAHIC AND TROUBLED NIGHT THAT IS croN us, there ii .no Star ahovethu horizon TOOIVE USA OLEAM OF LIUIIT, EXCEPTING THE fTEUIOtXT, TATRIOTIO Wlllfl PARTV OF THE United States." Daniel Webster. Telegraph Electing:. The citizens of Uurlington interested in the success of the cflbrlH now making to secure a Telegraphic communication between New York and Montreal, tin Western Vermont, are re quested to ascmble at STHONC'S HALLi TO-MOitKOW (Saturday) KVKXIXG, at 8 o'clock, to hear tlie report of the Committeo ar- pointed to solicit subscription', and to take sucli further steps as may be thought expedient. The Stnte Convention. Tho customary Convention of the Whigs of Vermont, for tho nomination of candidates for the principal Mate o!lice, will be held at Mont pelicr on Wednesday ii".t. Although, under tho circumstance?, we have no reason to sup pose that the assemblage will be a large one, (i-inco the re-nomi nation of the present excel lent, faithful and unexceptionable incumbents is looked for almost a-a in itlcr of course,) wo in all kindness counsel biocofocoisni in this State against attempting to draw comfort from such an indication of Whig apathy or indifference. We verily believe that the administration of John 'I'yler, even, was far less odious to the people of Vermont than is th it of James K. I'olk. Iii Tyler's case the popular odium at tached more to tho person of that already for gotten fungus, and glow out of the natural feel ing of disgust ami contempt tint treachery, on whatever scale it is practised, always cveitcs among men ; but nothing of this character can be alleged against I'olk. On tho contrary, his administration has been rendered odious and unpopular more on account ol his thorough and lavish fidelity to his party pledges and pally and sectional policy and measures. Ho was proented to the people as the pro-slavery, pro Texas, pro-Orrgon, (" whole ir none"') ami Tariff, anti-intcrnal-improvcment candidate. He was elected ; ( pailly by fraudulent pettifog ging on the Tariff, to lie sure,) and to the issues presented by the turbulent and incongruous On cntion that, to tho astonishment of himself and the world, conferred the nomination upon him, be has adhered with the pertinacity of the thorough-bred paitylnck that he was well known 1 to be by tint small portion of the country who knew anything about him. He has none of the confidence of the rcoi-rx, because ho was never of or for them. Ho was a partisan Represent ative, a partisan Speaker, and is, eminently, a partisan President ; and has inliictcd more in jury upon tho country, by his partisan policy Rtid measures, than ran now be estimated. He Is precisely of that class of politicians who are the tune of Republics ', he sec no triumph but party triumph, and aims tit no success but party success. The administration of such a man is not the rne to win Vermont to Ijcofncnism She lias withstood the rough-and-ready obstinacy, and straight-forward energy of Jackson, and tho oily dcnvtgguim of Van Hit.l:.', and is not likely to lis disturb;.! by th; smill arts of so incon siderable a political operator as James K. I'olk. We feel, therefore, no apprehension, this year, for the integrity of tlie old Green .Mountain State. SIio will mako herself heard, at the proper time, on tlie subject of the War, and the measures generally of this feeble and cor rupt administration. Wo hope to see a goodly attendance at the State Convention ; but large or small, we knmc tint the action of that Con vention will meet the hearty concurrence of a large tmjotity of th'1 people of the State, and will receive the emphatic sanction of their The I'oiirlh of July. This anniversary, sacred to the remembrance of the inflexible love of Freedom and hatred of Oppros-ion of our forefitbers, and chronicled throughout tlie civilized world as " the dtwn of tlip political milleiiiiim," will find the American People engaged in an unjust because an mine ecfsiry waii upon a si-ter Republic! It is a significant fact that the prup (rations for the cus tomary celebration of this anniversary arc much fe'eer than they haec eier been since Ihe fonmtion of the Guiermn:nt. Throughout the length and breadth of tho land, with few and rare excep tions, " the sabbath d (V of Freedom" is about to be greeted, if not ' in silence and in tears," cer tainly in silence. The " bonfires and the illumi nations," to vividly predicted by the elder An am-, have not been kindled upon tho National Altars. Tho only cannon whose roar will greet the ri-ing sun on tlie Ith of .Inly, 1817, will bo thoto which inllict misery and mourning upon two RtrunLtcs ! For the first time in nearly sexcnly years, American patriotism is not kindled by the recurrence of the anniversary of that day which witnessed and exemplified its noblest de velopement! The National heatt is sad, and the National pulse beats luw. Recollections of the heroic self-sacrifices and the exalted public vir tues that marked tho characters of thoso giant men upon whom tho morning of the Revolution broke, aro darkened by the unhappy spectacle that our country now presents. We af.e ex- r.AUF.D IS A U'AIl OI IWASSIUS AM) Cl.NQUEST the fatal rock on which all Republics, ancient and modern, have split! Partisan politician may refine and minify, bluster and boast, ns they please they deccivo only theiii-elves. The American People, aro undeniably, in contempt of tho wise uiid faithful injunctions of their Wasiiixgiov, and the maxims of tho departed Sa"cs and Patriots of the Republic, engaged ix A war or Invasion asu Cosqi'Esr ! No won der, then, that tho Nation is mute on tho birth day of its Liberties. No wonder that, having rejected tho wi-doni that founded our boasted Freedom, wo reject also tho ceremonies that would serve but to remind u.s of our wickedness and our fjlly I I.uUii's' r'nir. It will be seen by an advertisement tint the . Lsdies connected with tho Universalis Church will hold a Faik at Sikongj' Hall, to-morroic, for the puriwse of raising funds to furniih their Church when complete!. The Mnsnctlc Telegrnph. . Messrs. Cornfll, Livingston and liter; have been In town some days, conferring with our business men and other cltliens In rgard to the projected Telegraphic Line to connect Troy and Montreal, n'i Rutland, Brandon, Middlebury, Vcrgcnnes, Burlington, St. Albans, &c. On Tuesday evening, in pursuance of a notice hastily Issued on that day, a few of our Inhabi tants assembled at Strong's Hall for tho purpose of concerting measures for tho success of so de sirable a project. Professor Geo. W. Benedict and O. C. Haswf.i.i., E-r. woro tho Chairman and Secretary ol the meeting. After a brief and highly interesting statement, by the Hon. Mr. Marsh, of the progress of tho various cflbrts that have been made, during the past fifty ycars,to mnstcrlhc Lightnings into the service of man, and of tho success which has finally crowned the scientific labors of l'rofessor Morse in that behalf. Mr. Cornell proceeded, in the clearest and most satisfactory manner, to lay before the meeting tlie statiMics of tho pro posed Lino from Troy to Montreal, nnd tho arguments and motives that ought to influence tho citizens of Western Vermont to a vigorous effort to secure to themselves its advantages and conveniences. But one opinion wa entertained of the business-like clearness and fairness of the statements nnd arguments of Mr. Cornell, and wo can in no better manner exemplify their cll'ect upon an audience necessarily .possessing but slight knowledge or observation of the value of such investments, than by stating that between three and four thousand DOLLARS was sub scribed beforo the meeting adjourned. This amount has been already more than doubled, and no doubt remains that Burlington will do a little more than her full proportion of the work. But $30,000 is required, as we have heretofore stated, to secure the speedy construction of the Line, and to place Western Vermont in almost immediate business contact with Xew York, Bos Ion, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Buf falo, Montreal, Quebec, and the intermediate places. Of this small sum, we are authorized to regard at least one-half as already In effect secured in Burlington. Our business men are too sensible of tho immense advantages to be derived from tho possession of this maMcr inven tion of the age, to permit the present dibit to obtain it to fall through. Tho intelligent gentlemen above alluded to, who have this enterprise in charge, will shortly visit the piincipal towns on the proposed line to perfect their arrangements for the immediate commencement of the work. Wo take great pleasure in commending them, and the noble object they aro aiming to carry forward, to the confidence and co-operation of our numerous friends in Western Vermont. The small amounts needed in each of the flourishing towns named, to secure stations, &c, will, we do not permit ourselves to doubt, be subscribed without hesi tation.

Will our flourishintr sister of the Gazette try to manage her indignation at our irn-verent no tice o the reverend politician, Xorris Day, and inform us wherein we differ from Mr. Brainerd excepting in the ability to maintain these opin ions ; in which wo readily concede our infe riority ? And when she has done this, will she be so tr-ry good as to explain the advantages that aro likely to result from such a divi-iou of par ties as would be sure to result in the success of Locofocoism, from which, to use tlie Gazette's men words, " that man must be beside himself if.'io experts any thing fur Freedom " .' We pause for a reply. The Grcnt Business Congress ut Chicngo. It is probable that a majority of tlie States of this Union will be represented, and strongly represented, at this novel Congress of Business men, tint is to be held at Chicago on Monday next, the fith ltit. Most of our readers are al ready aware of the prime cause that suggested the call for this Convention the absurd and unjust and injurious Vetoes of President Polk of the Bills innking appropriations for tlie im provement of Rivers and Harbor. The ad dress to the people of the United States, setting forth, in tones of eloquent indignation and re monstrance, tho outrage and wrong inflicted npongre.it business interests of tho Country by the refusal of .Mr. I'olk, to ratify the appropria tion made by tlio National Congtess for purpo ses so conducive to the common welfare and so legitimately within tlie scope of congressional legislation, and calling for this Great Conven tion of the people, was written by .Mr. Wext- wouni, a distinguished "democratic rcprc tentative of Illinois. Tlie attendance upon the Convention will be, to a great extent, irrespec tive of party division, and composed of men who understanding the Constitution quite as well us James K. Polk, and as little disposed to son it violated in letter or spirit, will be likely to treat the fine-spun theorizing of the Tennessee spe cial-pleader on Virginia abstractionism will very little practical respect. v o shall keep our readers advised of tho do ing? of this Important body of American Citizens who aro mettoadvito means to protect them selves and Ihe Country against the abuse of the " One .Man Power."

Dedicated to Cuve Johnson and his Deputies Wo give- below an extract from a letter lately received. It will be seen that our friend waxes warm. Wo beseech him to bear the afflictions that our admirable Post Office man agement, under tho Immortal Cave Johnson, be stows upon Mm, liko a hero and a martyr. It Is always the darkest just beforo day, and as the mails and post offices are, just now, In a consid erably worse condition than wo have ever before known or heard of, we aro cheered by tho hope that " thero Is a good time coming I" As to u-hcre tho fault Is, it Is cicry tchcre; all over Cave Johnson's Post Office dominions. Wo lon't believe thero are many more Post Masters in tho Country (from Cavo down, or up, as the case may be) who aro competent to the per formance of their duties, than thcra wore right eous men In Sodom. Wo claim to be a good-natured man, but, as tlie peaceful spectator in tho crowd said, when ho was knocked orer by a brick-bat, wo think it is about time theso people were spoke to. The Post Muster Genera! interprets and niters the law precisely a ho please, and appears to be aiming to render his entire Department a? in convenient and oppressive to the people, whose servant he is, as Ids limited capacity will enable him to; while Ids subordinates arc, to a very great extent, fit instruments of oflicial insolence and petty tyranny. The Post Office was designed and created solely and exclusively for tho accomodation nnd convenience of tlie business of the Peqflc; nnd the Post Master General was created, by tho People, and invested with power and authority, and fed witli a fit salary, for the purpose of so managing its concerns as best to carry out that lesign. Ho lias nothing (legitimately; to tin either with miking or interpreting, and least of all has ho authority to alter, the laws regulating his Department. In the better days of the Re public, when wo had our Meigs' and our Gran- . oers at the head of the Post Office, its true and and beneficent dcsb'ii was efficiently carried out. Post Offices, in those days, were places , , .a , lilt I t ll .. where people could get what belonged to them, and to nobody else, without being treated as though they were receiving some extraordinary favor, and without being subjected to tlie ncccs-.

The quarrel between the two Dromios of Lo cofocoism at Ilcnnington, the Hill Gazette, and the Valley Gazette, is subsiding into something quito intelligible to most readers. Tho Hill villago nun swears that Mr. Haswcll is not orthodox in politics that he even goes so far ns to dire to think rather lightly of James K, I'olk !.'

Tho secret of tho matter, after all, seems to bo that Mr. Haswcll supposes ho can bo a I.o cofoco teithout having any very high notions ot Mr. Polk, and without glorifying this " miserably managed" war following, in tho last respect, the teaching of his respectable father who, we believe, was a hot anti-war federalist in 1812.

Censcee hnth been defined as being " a tax which merit pais to envy ;" but the cenmre here spoken of is " a tax that was anciently paid to the Lords of the Manors of Devon nnd Cornwall, nt the rnteoflld. per lull, nnd Id. per una." The unequal allotment of this shilling's worth of censure, requiring eleven pence to bo pnld by " roll," nnd only a penny by " Ann," whoso pin-money wns probably not less than that of her sister, is a striking Instance of the general unfairness of taxes, which, on that account, have been termed "Impositions" from the days of Herod down wards.

On the 5th of June a train was to leave Vera Cruz in the morning for Puehln, under charge of Lieut. Col.

One hundred nnd twenty-five wagon nnd six hun dred pack mules were in the train, winch was escorted by 800 troop. The train left Vera Cruz on tlie night 01(110 4111 inst., and on Sunday the Glh., after advan cing about '25 miles, it was nttn ked by n large parly of guerillas. The place wa well selected for the pur pose by the Mexicans, being represented ns n defile broad enough for a single wagon only. It Is said, loo, that slight works had been thrown up by the .Mexicans to obstruct our ndvnnce. Tlie attack was made upon each extremity of the train nnd upon the centre ni the same time, the prin cipal point, however, being the wagons, which were supposed to contain the specie. Private neennnts re present that the attack wns so far successful that forty of our wagons were ihstrnycd, though not those con taining the specie. Two hundred runic, loaded witli subsistence, were taken, nnd lliirtv of our men killed. The check wns so severe that Col. Mackintosh de termined not to hazard nn ndvnnce without reinforce ments.
