Independently of his vaunted op-Ipo-ilion to the Annexation of Texas in 1841, aim ins present anuigeu nosiiiity to 1110 jut titer extension of Slavery, no Whig, or Liberty man, could bo found so mad a to dream of aid-1 ing in the election nf Martin Van Hiinn! Now let us look at it a moment. Nobody will deny tint if Texas had not been annexed, there 1 would now be 110 tenilorv about which to rai-e this " vexed question"' of the extension of Slave ry. Ihe ipii-lion was at rest us respected cx I'enitory for no one supposes that the ' South had any real de.-ire to extend Slavery in to Orcgwi. American Slave labor would bo as much out of place, and useless, in Oregon, as it would ho in Kamchatka ! The scheme of Texas Annexation, it cannot Lie Homed, was a scheme ot certain ultra-Slave- j ry propagandists ol the booth, who, like .Mr. f critical pretender to superior zeal for Kieedom Cauioi-x, look upon the preservation, perpetua-1 frmn charging us with misstating or garbling his tion and extension of Slavery a indi-pens.iUe j scnlieIlU r NieHs.

It was nluioil ex- humiliating record below, ard form their own chtsirely a Southern " dcmochatic" project. We presume this will not be denied.

That 1'1'Y of that Convention was in favor of the nomination of Martin Van Hutch. If, there fore, this " democratic" (!) Convention, whose leaders are so con-taully pr.iliur about the "will of the majoiiii'V," who would have overturned the Constitutional (lovernment of UhoJe I-land in obedience to the " vv ill of the .majoiiitv ," and who are ever loud-mouthed in deference to the "vujorilyn the People" il this " democratic" Conveuliiiii, we s ly, h id bowed lo the ' will of I the majority," Martin Van lluren would have' been nonrinted on the first ballot ; for on tho first b il li 't he received a majority ol Ihe votes !

Now our readers will observe that tin . '. llutlrr, who figures so extensively in this Ihlli more Convention is the same mm who was most prominent in the late Ulica (Ihrnhurner) and HuH'iln (I'iro Soil) Convention". He was the author of the Itesolution adopted by all time of the Conventions the Ilaltimore, in Is II, and the Ulica and lliill'alo in IS 18. He was the warm personal friend ot Van lluren in tho Kaltiinore Convention of 181 1 and as such, was oyiyfjsci tu the scheme of Annexing Texas, and extending tho area of Slavery. Hut now mark: After Jamrs IC. l'oll,,lhcannexn!ioncan Jitl tie, was nominated and nominated rxrlw s'urlyun tkcgruitnJ lint he was in favor of "the l.M.MniJlATi: annexation of Texas" Ibis same II njitmin l llutlrr, the mil!-7 'exits mouthpiece of Martin Van lluren in the Convention, arose and, uftcr a few crocodile tears over the defeat of Van lluren, said : "in: was fujtu: nr. coiji.d itomisi: "m:vyoiik, hv ao.iioii majouity run " )'()I,h. lie nlsu sinii il he had a k-tler in his " pocket from Mr. Van Ilim-n, tolling bun towith ' draw his name if necessary or dusiruble." Hero evaporates the sublime devotion of Mar tin Van lluren and lieuj. K. Ilutler ag.iin-t the annexation of Texas ! .Martin Van Huron's or gan in the 1icnfnco Convention promises Mar tin Van liuren's State of New York to Polk, the annexation candidate, " ly .(),000 majority !'' Where was M r. Ihvj. V, llutlcr'o Keal fo: "Tree Soil" then! Hut this is not all. Mr Van lluren " sacrijic- Ctl" himself on account of his opposition to the j annexation of Texas and the consequent cxtcn-1 "ion of Slavery, say his friends! Ah, indeed ! Let 11 look a moment at this allegation of rn ig-' nanimily and devotion to Principle on the part of this immaculate 1'reo Soil man. Il probably will nut bo denied that IK Van liurcn was real ly, uprightly and honestly, opposed to the an nexation of Texa, in 1311, and was willing tu sacrifice the I'nU'hncy ral'n r than yield hisii'n- ion on this jmmt ho wouU have been about the ,llft nm j,, , ,;ni()n tn vot0 forj nr !lJvoc.ltC( ,-,i nf .;.,, ,- ikm ... i, ,t. inted solely to carry out that iiefuious scheme. HUT Hi: DID HOniM He not only voted for James K. Polk an! the annexation of Texa", but warmly urged his friends throughout the country to do the same ! We know that many Whig "Kree Soil" m.-n deny this. They can not cot c 'it e of such duplicity, and treacl.eiy to avowed principle. Hut we desiio to leave no room fur cavil cn such a point. A few davs af- ter the nomination of Polk a great Locofoco " Italilication .Meeting" was held in New York, to an invitation to attend which .Mr. Van lluren returned the reply below. We insert it cn- f j orilcr to prevent the friends o( this hypo opinion of the siNCEiurvof its author's loudly proclaimed hostility lo the annexation of Texa-! ! Let them remember that the Hiltiiuure Conven- lion, which cast aido M irlin Van lluren, as his Kree Soil friends take to much pains to sav, ' because of that hostility, and nominated .latms t A'. Pall, solely on account of hi known advo- , cacy of tho abominable scheme of annexation, ' was held on the 27th of May 1318, mid that the letter below, gi i'g ih the sum" Martin Van liu ren's adherence lo Ihe Poll, and Texas, was written on llie 3d of June billowing ,n'a- day being a sufiicient timo for tho entire cvap- lion's skin " is altogether loo small for the 'as!" There Is not a won nor a syllable of j truth or decency in the miserible prelence. , Van lluren and lii present " Kree Soil-' Htrn-I huriicrsquad of schemers went KOIt the nnnex-' ation of Texas and the Mvteiision of Slavery, in 1811, when they .miuiit, if llieir jinf-ssiun had ' ""t been as empty as the air, lave defeated both! 1 'l'he following is his letter.
