The Sentinel of this morning, as we expected, has given us the re sult of the " Instruction Meeting" at the Union House; but as the article below contains snmo wholesome historical truths, we do not like to suppress it. Tho instruction Meeting resolved that the Delegates to their State Convention " be and are hereby instructed" to go for Cass &, Under All right ! Now let us see what will come of it ! The Convention comes oll'to-moriow. Tlicm Instructions. We have'ut heard how tint Old Hunker "in istruction" meeting at the Union House came nut, la-t evening, (though Mr. Darby thinks It probably came, out as it in lit in, by the door!) The Cass organ will doubtless let lis know all about It, however, on Monday morning. The notion of petting the " democracy'' together for the purpose of instructing their representatives in an ordinary State Convention for the nomi nation of State olliceis, is a silinilicant feature of the times I Who ever beard of such a thing before 1 We can explain it to our readers in tho clearest manner. The nomination of L'-icis Cavt, has proved the wettest and the coldest " wet blanket" that ever fell upon the "democracy" of tho North. The outrage upon the free instincts of the whole North which this nomination of a Northern man who is FLEnriEii to veto any legislative enactment, by Congress, for tho exclusion of Slavery from our Tree Territories consummates, is too gross for tho usually patient endurance of "the narty." They managed, though with ill disguised leluctance, to swallow Mr. l'olk, four years ago, notwithstanding they were really op posed to tho Annexation of Texas ; but to bo called on to suppnit a Northern man who has submitted to the disgiaco of a Southern recemd birth, and come out a doughface of tho most un scrupulous character, was u-Mng 111010 than iliintercslcd Locofocoisr.i at the North would submit to! It has pioud I he last fatal ounce on the bark of the over-loaded "Democracy" of the Free Slates, and, like Nchciniah's calf, they have " gire out .'" Mini of the prominent, h-aJ-ing,unJ ;W mrmlicn. if the I iicafnco jiarlij in Vermont hare fil'mccd the cxamjdc Ml them Inj the Van Ilai,i, C.nn'jrelens, llutlrn, ami the " hush if itt iiiwnici," in 1'ic Hmjiire Stale, ami denounce Cas mnl his jirn-slaicrij ilnclrinc.i, ami his mine than slaiish siilisenicneij to Southern ilictiilion, ami ulleilij nfuse to sustain or supyorl him. They do so openly and without lesene! They are I'mi llaren-incn, and don't pictend lo disguise it; and will attempt (though we think without success) to procure the nomination of Mr. Van lluren by the bocofoco State Conven tion next week ! They arc strong, sensible and influential men in the parly, and understand pre cisely what they are about. Now Ilurlington furnishes her full share, both as to numbers and ability, of theso Yankee llarn luimer.s4 Moro than one of Ibcin are in the list . . . . .1 t.. . . . ft . ! MM 01 Delegates 10 me o.aiu uomeuyoo. j.m7 were placed mere ajter 1110 nnmiuaiiou 01 !, and when it was well known that they would not plcdgo themselves to his support. Tho pro bability is that they were selected becatiso of their watering frith ill Cass democracy, and in the hope that the " compliment !" Would bring them into the traces. The hope tvaa dcliiiivo ! They aro contumacious, nnd the more they think of it "tlie more they think they lfoii't" help debase tho freemen of Vermont by pretending to ho in fator of a man for tho Presidency, who would aid in extending Slatery, and it ho would leave tho ltroakwatcrs, and oilier Impioveinciits upon our Lake, to rot unfinished. Hence it comes that tho Old Hunkers who, as supporters oi Cass and tho rcgul ir nomina tion, assume to bo ' tho Parly," propose to ', in struct" the iion-coinforming Delegates. Per ceiving the blunder they undo is appointing them without a pledge, Ihey now seek to 'in struct" them out of their seals ! It is currently reported that llio thing emit lm ilone ,' A Cient Joke. C. D. Kasson of this tillige, a llirnbiirner of the str.iitest sect, vv.i appointed President of the Cass County Convention l.,-t Saturday for ., , ,. f, .., , .,, f !, the nmiinition of County .Senators. Yo find tho following brief paragraph in tho Sentinel's official account (signed by Air. Kiit-mi liimsolf I) of the proceedings of thu Contention: 1 Upon request, the President stated bis views u;k,ii the prominent political ijuestions id ihe day and Ihe pivpiulij of suppuiltng the luiltiimne nomination. The fun of the thing is lb it Mr. Kanson's ictvs, when they caino to be " stated " to the Convention " upon request," rather turned upon the IMPROPRIETY,, "of supporting Ihe tiinore nomination "j In short, he avowed him self, wo are informed, a Van lluren m ill !

Mow, considering that Mr. Kasson- was their candidate for the Senile last year, it would teem he was knocked overboard this year in conse quence of Ids polite, compliance with " request,'' in disclosing his " views ;" a proceeding that smacks of " proscription for opinion's sale" if it were not that Locofucos never practice any such enormity ! TI1I2 INSTRUCTION MEF.TINO. The "democrats" who assembled at the Un ion House on l'riday evening, not only in structed llio Van lluicn men in their ranks to go for Cass, hut passed the following charming little tcsolnriun : I'esolml, t Ihe deliberate sense of this meet ing that tho ba'cTaccd lalehood set by the w bigs as an oll'-i t lo their nomination of an ex tensive slaveholder for President; That (Ion.

A Mr. Nicholson, of Nashville, Term, wrote to Cass in December last, asking him whether or not ho was in favor of tho W11..110T I'kiivimi, which, if enacted by Congress, would nxi i.i'ni: Si.aveky frou our Territories, Mr. L"wis Cass wrote back '0 Mr. Nicholson as follows: " I am orrosrn to tut. rNFnrivi; or any jlt.isuh riox " i:v over, -mis Mtrri.r.."

WEDNESDAY KVEMNG, JULY 111, 1818. tiTSoiith Carolina nml the Vlrig Nomina (tons. One of the " positions" taken by tho Whigs who distrust Ron. Taylor on the Free Territo ry question, is that South Carolina will go for him, and thcrcfoio ho must he wrong. Tho rea soning is not very complimentary to the Palmet to State, it must he admitted, while at tho same time wo concede that the peculiar notions in re gard to the blessing of Slavery, winch Mr. Cal houn's genius has impressed upon her people, iAi lender her support of a candidate for the Presidency lather a reproach to him than oth erwise ! She never yet voted for a Whig can didate at any rate j hor sympathies and her votes having heretofore gone, with great una niniity, fur Southerners, or for such men as Mr. Van Huron, who won her regird by his distinct avowal of "Southern principles." The only apprehension that has been felt of the secession of this ultra-radical Locofoco State from the support of Cass, has proceeded from tho iMlitralilnlruslifhtshtmcsliwhich his ready and willing subsoiviency to tho South was so well-calculated to excite. Even South Carol! ni was hardly prepared to confido in the inleg rity of the Northern Tree-State man who, false to his birth-right, his education, and the senti ment of Freedom that now pervades the vvmlJ could go into an argument to prove the tihun- luges lhat icouhl result from " transfortimi Slaves to a new CoUxtky tho I'rco Toirito rics of the Union anb ciivino tiif.m a space to occupy" I Such an excess of servility to Slavery in a Northern man, was in danger of "o'erleaping itself" and destroying tho con fidence it was intended to secure! South Car olina never asked this extent of concession to tlie "peculiar institution" even from Mr. Van Du ron 'he could never have expected it from any I'rce-Stato man. Cass's demagogue zeal to secure Southern support, however, led him so far and so deep into " Southern principles," that the very masters at whose feet he had humbled liiinclf havo neither respect for the sincerity of us opinions, nor confidence in his determination to carry them out ! It has been supposed, there fore, that the vote of South Carolina would not be given to Lewis Ciiis that the Slavery-pal-ladium-votorsof that State would prefer to trust their tiombling and doomed " Institution" to the straight-forward honesty and integrity of (Jen. Taylor, (though he would not favor or encour age its further " diffus'tim,") than to the doubt ful protection of a Northern Doughface, whose strongest claims upon their support are based on a depth of servility to profound as to bo in credible ! Hut tho last iris7iin7o)i Union, the organ of .Mr. Polk, and the great leader of the Pro-Slave- fy a"J S!vcry-tcn.lon P"ty of the country, removes all doubts of the " position" of South Carolina in the approaching contest.

TTIio Cass and llutler Stale Convention as. senibled at Moulpelier this day. Our friend of tho Watchman is on the spot aud will probably l.ibo notes. For the Daily Free Press. In times when men who seek to control the politi cal action of the populace greatly abound, it may be well to turn nide, for a little while, from llio more Immediate concerns of strictly party strile, and scon the motives nnd the doctrines of these pretended nnd vaunting friends of Ihe people. All along they have held themselves up as special npostles ol Democracy, and the peculiar friends ol the " dear pc'iptr," whom they declare to be the only sov ereigns known to our government, winch they repre sent ns purely dcmocralical. It is believed tint to call ours a purely democraticnl form of government, is not wider from the truth, than tu style themselves the especial guardians of thcxo pie who compo-e it. All governments, to b complete, enduring and en ergetic, must include within their scope these three gieat power, vu: the executive, the legislative, and the judicial. These powers underlie all existing governments ; and the peculiar manner ol distributing them among the dillerent functionaries thereof, distinguishes omj form of government from another. In a despotism, all these powers are vested in, nnd are exercised by, a single individual. In an absolute, nristociacy, they belong to a few persons, constituting a permanent sovereign council. And hi a pure nnd absolute democracy, they are exercised by the ieopI at large, in their original sovereign ns-i-mbhes. Il'it a purely despotical, aristoeratical, or democrat icnl form of government very rarely e.vtsts ; a these Severn! powers arc commonly tested in independent departments ot ihe same government ; in which case the government becomes a mixed one. When ihe executive department is hereditary in a single person, it is styled a mixed monarchy ; if hereditary in certain chieftains, or families, it is a mixed aristocracy ; if delegated by election, it is a mixed democracy, or a republic. This classification is in accordance with that adop ted by Mr. Justice tilory, and will be found, on exami nation, to be correct in all its details. 1'roui the above, it is plain that our form of govern ment is not an absolute democracy, but a Republic. Nor do these distinctions eoneit ia words alone ; for the powers of the people ill a democracy are widely dillerent in their nature, nnd more enlarged in their ,i. i. ,,. i. ,.,,,..,,,, . r... n ,(, sense, they nny be said to be sovereign j powers ol government, whether executive, legislative or judicial emanate, in the first instance, from the peo ple, who are clothed witli the power of declaring who shall be their executive, their legislators, and their judges. Hut when, in the exercise of their rights ns citiens, they hate once d-'legited these great fundamental powers, and have thus constituted a government, that government, as such, possesses and exercises powers, which, though emanating from, are yet above nnd be yond the control of the people nt large. And though they may, in the exercise of their limited sovereignty, change the form, nnd jibridge the powers, of the gen eral government ; yet until tint be done, the govern ment so established by them, is sovereign and not the people. In this examination of the nature of our government and in its comparison with lhatof an absolate democ lacy, it mu-t hate occurred to all, that the latter form uf government is clearly utiadapted to any other coun tiy than one of seamy population, limited extent, and rude, simple habits j and that, even then, it would but poorly satisfy the wants and necessities ol the inhabi tants. And it is equally clear, that in adopting a Re publican form of government, the framersof that beau tiful ui.- ...biUP vtlnch we live, in which the funda mental powers are distributed , umun arm iiur,inu m a mensure, independent timciioivanes, were gtiid-il not only by coi redness of theory, but by the hghtof ihe history of the past, which alone can lead lo abso lute security Irom error. And w hen the i-ue are told by ranting demagogues, that in our country they ure the only soiereiyi, they w ill do well to rememlier that Ihey are re-auy s only 10 a hunted extent ; and that it hchootes tin t t del egate sovereignty 10 ihose only, whose intel. giTx, honesty and patriotism are a sure guarani) thai tin-) will aim at nothing short of the true end and scope of ull governments, the grenlest good of all And let them not forget lhat in all ages ihe greatest tyrams have been those who were raised 10 power by otP'ct 1114 ihe highest cone-em, and deepest regard for the interests ot those otcr whom ihey hate swajcJtUo bloody sceptre of despotism.
