"To all politicians of the 011c tVcrt school, it would be useless to urge that the question now placed before the electors of the Union is sim ply, which or the two candidates, now before the public, shall be the next President of the United States ?

The Sentinel is in an agony lest the Whigs of the Country should nol repudiate the nomination of Tayi.oii ami Fill.moiu:, as New York '' nnd sovornl otbor ganilemcit" lmvc done that of Css and liullcr. It can find but one paper thus fur, however, that shows nny signs of being willing that Leieis Cass should step into the Presidency through dissensions among the Whigs. The Sentinel says : 11 me w lug. 01 erinnut suhinit lo this nomina tion, lliey submit lo whin is plu'njy m, imposition. J'hey have noble c.vuwplcs belore tluiu.' This allusion to the "uoblo example"' of the liariibiiiner.s, in refusing to submit to the nomination of a IVorilicrn doughface who declares that he will interpose his veto against tlio preservation of Kjuxuom in t lies National Territories, is rather remarkable in the Scnliml, which is a Hunker paper. Jlut it is wholly unnecessary, as "the Whiirs of Vermont " nre nroeisnlv .,, ilm Iliirnbuiner ground, on this question, mid intend to defeat Lewis Cass, una " nothing shoiler!" -Mr. rphuni's Speech 011 the Wnr. The Bmtllelmro I'hu nix, alluding to the able and convincing speech of Senator Uhiam, on the Mexican War, uses the folluwing language, in which wo most cordially concur. Mr. Ur ham did hiui-cir great credit by this cflort, which is one of the clearest, most elaborate and most conclusive, of the expositions of tlio Texas and Mexico iniquity, tl,u k,uo been presented in Congress : " Although the immediate question upon which it w ns made, has passed an ay, it will be found iuteiest ing and iustrucme.

(Jen. Cns in New York. The Common Council of New York got hand somely taken in by interfering with the elec tioneering tour nr Gen. Cass and " suite" homo wards. Alderman Franklin (Whig) knocked Cass into a "cocked bat" by saying to him, when he welcomed him to tho city, that the Common Council did not receive him as a " Par ty leader" but as a resigned Senator "on bis way home." Tills stvle or address " ombarassed" the Nashville-letter gentleman, as he had proba. bly calculated on a partisan rcccplion, by the "manifest destiny" Hunkers by whom he had been nominated at llaltimore. He therefore made poor work at a speech, being at a loss for anything but parly topics to talk about. Allen of Ohio, I Initston, Foot, and others of his "suite," however, were troubled by no delicacy on the occasion. Allen said : " It could hardly be expected on nn ocasion like this,nud so liprepared us he was, ilmt he could make a speech lilted to the leelmgs of the Democracy, if ho linil thus come furicard to honor their candidate for the 1'icsidcncij." Nieo words on receiving a public reception bya Whig Common Council ! Hut the " mass es" who surrounded tho General in an unotlicial capacity, were locofocos and nothing else, as Allen probably know well enough j and there fore bo had no scruples about his manner of ad dressing them. Of the procession, which made a great dis play on pai'er, the N. Y. Express says : This oTiler of arrangement of the procession looks vcr suet ry well on pa;s?r : but there wus, hi point ot fact no .Ti procession. There was 110 cavalcade; there were no Senators and Representatives, except those in the suite of (Sen. Cn-s, nnd ol those but n few ; the Governor of the Slate, various societies and public bodies, citiens on foot and on horseback, oil these were merely in Ihe progrunuue nnd not 111 tlie pro- 1 cession.

His defeat by old KoL-oit ami Ready will be a thing for him ti remember, t f lie should happen to get votes enouob to remind him that bo was a candidate I A Fct.t. Convfiit. When the Nort Star pub lished Gen. Cass' letter repudiating Ihe Wibnot Proviso, culling it an Important Slate paper worthy ol "rave consideration, wo ventured the liint that the .Star was under conviction und to predict Iliat it would probably become a convert to Gen. Cass' views. Our neighbor winced a little at the time, but the I eavon was working, and since the noinm.i - of tlio General tn the i'residential chair, all tion doubts have vanished. The nnti.Wilmct.Proviso views or Gen. Cass form no objection to tho ticket " Wo support the ticket beciuso wc believe it to be a good one asffiunt iicrhais ascouldhaxc keen rrlirtid," so says the Star, and so wo ventured to predict, although it excited a lillle or its ire at the time. Hut times alter, Alas for the poorslaves ! Cat cJnnian. This Xnrth Star should cbango places and names with " the Dijiper." BT The N. Y. JUening 1'nst (democrat) speaking of the nomination o( Gen. Taylou, say : ." H'c nuw look upon ihe Presidenlial question as viriuniiyHeiiieu; i.eneroi Taylor will uc in the Tics ideuiiaf chuir ou the 4ili ol March it he is alive." And again : "The great error of the present administration iu adopting nml continuing the lust prolligate proceed ings or Air.

The address to tho people of Massachu setts, inviting all who nre " opposed to tho nomination of Cass nnd Taylor" lo meet at Worcester on tho 28th inst., which tho Sentinel parades with such startling solem nity before its' fenders this morning, and which it desires to have understood is en dorsed tl'fe' lioslonCouricr, (misrepresent ing that paper as saying that " it 1ms been extensively circulated throughout tho State,") is a vory shallow devico. Tho Courier prints it by request, without U xcord of comment, nnd there is not the signature of ;i live man " undersigned" to it. It is a poor "filius millius ;" illegitimate, unac knowledgcd, untrue both in statement nnd logic, and is probably 'the production of some remarkably cunning Old Hunker! The liaston Courier, which has been tho stoutest opponent of Gen. Taylor in New England, turns tho " cold shoulder " upon this missile, ingeniously contrived to aid tho sinking cause of Lewis Cass. When that paper takes a course that will tend to increaso tho chances of electing a North ern doughfucu who boldly proclaims that ho will, if elected, VETO any legislation by Congress for the preservation of FitnE dom ix ran Termtoriks of this Union, tho Sentinel may let us know it !

THE JItEAT It ATI I'lCATIOff CONVEN TION AT rillliAJJEM'MA. Tho Philadelphia United Stales Gazette gives a stirrinir account of the nroccedlnn-sririho tint. Ideation Convention, held in that City on Friday ' evening last, after tho nomination of Taylor . and Fillmoiii:. It was the largest assemblage 1 ever known in Philadelphia, nnd was character ized by harmony, union enthusiasm," every ' thing for tho caue." Tho following noble Res olutions wero tiii itiiinously, and with acclatna tions, adopted : 1. Resolved. That the Whin of il.e Itn!i..,l ami. here assembled by their Representatives, henrtily rat. , ily the nominations ol (Sen. ZACIIAIIY TAYLOR I as President, ond MI I, I, Alt I) FIl.LMOItl; as Vice 1 President of the United Stales, ond pledge, themselves 1 to their support. S. Resolved, That In the choice of General Tay lor as the Whig candidate for President, we ore glad to discover sympathy with n gtent popular sentiment throughout the nation n sentiment which, having its its origin in admiration of great military success, ' has been strengthened by the development, in every ' action ond eveiy word, of sound conservative opiu-1 ions, ond true fidelity to the great examples of former days ; and to the principles of the Constitution OS ad- ! ministered by its roundels. 3. Resolved, That Gcncnil Taylor, In saying that, ' had he voted in 1314, lie would have voted the Whig ticket, gives us the nssuronce (and no belter is need ed Irom a consistent nnd truth speaking man) that ins neuri was wuu us ni uie crisis 01 our poiiticnl lies tiny, when IIcxry Clay was our cnndiilate.nnd when not only Whig principles were well defined ami clear- 1 ly asserted, but Whig measures depended on success. The heart that was with us then is with us note, nnd we have a soldier's word of honor, nnd a lile of public and private virtue, as the security. 4. Resolved, That we look to (Sen. Taylor's ndinin istrntion of the Government os one conducive ol l'ence, Prosperity, ond Union. Of Peace liecnue no one better knows, or has greater reason to deplore what he has seen sadly on the field of victory, the horrors of war, and cs;eeially ol a Ibreign ond nggresiive war. (If Prtmi'eritij now more than ever needed to relieve the notion from a burthen ol debt, and to re-1 siore inuusiry agricultural, manufacturing, mm com mercial to its nccustomed audlpeaceful functions and influences. () Union because we have a candi date whose very position as a Southweptern man, rear ed on the banks of that great stream whose tributaries, natural and artificial, embrace the whole Union, ren ders the protection of the interests of tlic whole coun try his first trust, and whose varied duties in past lile have been rendered, not on the soil, or under the Hag ot any State or section, but over the wide frontier, and under the broad banner of the Notion. 5. Resolved, that standing os the Illiig party does, on the broad and firm platform or the Constitution, braced up by all its inviolable ond sacred guarantees nnd compromists, and cherished in the nfiections be cause protective ol Ihe interests ol the people, we ore proud to have as the exponent of our opinions, the one who is nledned to construe it bv the wise and irencrous rules which Washington applied to it, and who has said (and tlo Whigdesires any olherassiirancc) that he will make Washington 's administration the model or his own. C. Resolved, That os Whigs ond Americans, wc are proud to acknowledge our gratitude for the greot military services which, beginning ut Palo Alto, and ending at Deuna Vista, first nwokened the American people 10 a just estimate 01 mm w no is now our v lug candidate. In the discharge of a painful duty for his march into llie enemy's country was a reluctant one ; in the command ot regulars at one time, and of volunteers at another, and of both combined; ill llie decisive thouch punctual discipline of his comn where all respected ond beloved him ; in the negotiation or lenns lor a aejecieu nuu uesperuie enemy ; m ine exiacnev or actual conflict when the balance was per ilously doubtful, we have found him llie same, brave, distinguished and considerate, no heartless spectator 01 Diooasueu, no inner wun numaii me or uuman nnp niness ; and we do not know which to admire most, his heroism in withstaudiug the assaults of the cnmy in the almost hopeless field of liuena Vista mourn ing in generous sorrow over the graves of Ringgold, of Cloy or of Harding, or iu giving in the heat of battle terms of inereitul capitulation to a vanquished foe at Monterey, and not being ashamed to avow that he did it 10 snare women und children, he nless infan cy, and more helpless age, ogniust whom 110 Ameri can soldier ever wars. Such 0 military man whose triumphs are neither remote nor doubtful, whose vir tues these trials have tested, wc are proud to make our canuiuaie. Resolved, That in support ofsuch a nomination we nsk our Whig Iriends throughout the nalion to unite, nnd to co-oncrnte zealously, resolutely; with earnestness in behalf of our candidate, whom calumny cannot reach, nnd with respectful demeanor to our adversaries, whose candidotes have yel to prove their claims on Ihe gratitude ol the nation. Many eloquent speeches were made by dele gates from the various parts of the Union, all breathing one spirit of attachment for the Whig Causo and tho Country, and of determined opposition to the further Extension of I'olk Measures and Policy by means of Iwis Cass A. P. I.ymas Esq., of llenningtnn,the Delegate to tho Nominating Convention, from the First District, addressed the immense concourse, and amid hearty cheers for the indomitable Whigs of the Green .Mountains, whose "star has never set," pledged Vermont for Taylou and Fill more by an old-fashioned majority. Vermont sent no firmer or more devoted friend of Hcxr.r g:, Clay to that Convention than Mr. Lyman, and wo venture to say that the Convention contained '" no man who would havo been willing to work 1 I harder or sacrifice more, tn secure bis nomina tion nnd election. He well knew the affection ate regard and profound attachment of the Whigs of Vermont fur the character, services, principles, of Henry Clay.

It Is tho course Air.

For the Daily Free Press. A Dreiiiu, A short time since, as I was travelling in company with several or my friends, as the hour for breaklast arrived, wc stopped at an Inn and ordered lircokfnst, which wos soon announced as ready, and we hasten ed lo the dining room. On arriving, we found two tables, one or which was spread with all the superflu ities and luxuries that heart could wish or ingenuity could devise, and so excessively crowded that I coukl bv no means obtain a seat at it ; while the other was furnished with all the plain sutwianliaisonu comion. - . . . . . r which the country afforded ; Slid allho room, J declined taking a seal.ihoo.im ' , " r , , , for wal wlUl ollc of '"y u"nds at, uiics, when an opportunity presented ; i a aiinougu mcic -aa hooting raihcr low nil the table ol lux- ...le. hiianm,i.oriuiiiiviirtscnlcd; otidsccoidms ly took a seat ot the end or llie room, to nvvnit nn op portunity. Whilst impatiently walling, 1 observed one after another Itiititm the table which contained only luxarles,nnd seating themnlvcsnt the one which contained the subslantials lo finish their repast, This excited so much my curiosity that 1 concluded to wait a little and sec the event. Most or the company soon lelt the fiist table where they hod been seated, ond iinisiicu ineir mcnis quae saiif lied with the abundant plain substantial with which the second was spread ; nnd the lew that remained sonn skkenrd by the dele cucics, and lelt the loom in disgust. This setlled the point, ond as my fueud and 1 were about sitting down quite contented to partake of the abundant plain sub etantiatslhe table allbrdcd, my breakfast hell rang ond nvvokc me from my slumbeis to moke the following moral : As the abundant plain substantial food is best calcu lated for the health nml nourishment ol the bodyonie the sound talents and sterling integrity of General Taylor bestcalculatcd for the Presidency, to promote the happiness nnd prosperity of our country. SLKIU'ER. Jliunbttrner demonstration In Albany. The democratic opponents of Lewis Cass held a mass meeting in Albany on Friday last. The meeting was large and enthusiastic. The N. Y.

Butler, tho nuiiKer candidate for ice President, entitled "The IJoat Horn." The gallant General is undeniably, a very popular than, wherever he i known, on account of his attractive personal qualities. There is a great deal of beauty and sweetnoss in the poem we havo quoted, and it i evinces the possession ol those rare personal ex , cellencies that always make a man a formida- ' lilo nnlitieftl rnmnetitor.
