On Saturday last for the first time 1 was favored with the perusal of a pamphlet which hua keen put into circulation by the authority of the Whig meet ing which was convened at tne St Louis Exchange on the 3it July, 18+1?professing to describe the conduct of the Inspectors of the late election, and the proceedings of the Legislature in relation to the Elliott certificates, in which pamphlet I am sorry to be compelled to say there are some errors, also, some omissions. What happened at any other Poll than that of the First Ward Second Municipality, 1 have not any knowledge, but as to what happened at that Poll 1 am not mistaken. The authors of the said pam phlet are mistaken in saying that James P. Freret, Etq. my associate inspector, adopted a separate box and leceived the voies after the difficulty arose about the Elliott voteB, without being recognized by me. until the close of the Polls; the second box was adopted by both,and not a ballot placed in it which was not recognized by me?as well as by Mr. Freret, at the tune, and before it was put into that box. Only one ballot, (that of Mr. Kelly) was placed in either box without my consent, and that was put into the original box by Mr. Freret, betore the second box was introducedthis led to the compromise, alter which the business of the elec tion was conducted with all possible despatch and harmony, and uot a voter remained at the polls of taring to vote when the hour arrived for closing; and it is not known that a single voter lost his vole by the short delay which took place. Hence, the declaration that the Whig majority was probably reduced forty or fifty by this delay, is an imaginary figure as improbable, as their statement us to the conduct of the two Inspectors, is erroneous To have effected this majority of forty or fifty, there must have been more than one hundred and fifty good votes rejected, as the Whigs did not get two thirds of the votes polled. The statement I here make, the reader will find corroborated by the procei verbal beariug the signa tures of both Inspectors now on file in the office of the State Department?a copy of which will be found on page 37 of this book. It will be seen by a perusal of the proces verbal (page 31 to 47tof this pamphlet,) that Mr. Freret is mistaken when he says that Mr. Barker hud given his opinion in writing that the Elliott vote waB good all that Mr. Barker urged was investigation, which was refused, and to consider them good U in due form, and not impeached. After having thus described me es one of the of fending Judges, the Committee go on to say: '?The undersigned would only further observe, that criminal prosecutions have been instituted against the offending judges, who have been bound over to appear before the Criminal Court, and true bills oi indictment have been found against them " This, so lar as relates to me, is all fiction, nor is it true that bills of indictment against those judges against whom proceedings are pending, have been found The committee have published in their pamphlet the penalty of the law lor disfranchising a citizen, but omitted to proclaim the penalty of the law tor interfering with the Inspectors in the discharge ot their duty. It is to be found in the Act of Novem ber 7,1814,1st Mo: Digest page 431, sec. 5, and is in the following wordBi? " If it may be made to appear to the satisfaction of the proper court that at any election held or to be holden, under the laws of (his State, any intim idation, threats^ or violence, shall have been used or practised, with design to influence unduly, or to overawe such election, or to restrain the freedom of choice; or if any officer of election shall be threatened, or violence used to his person, or be interrupted in the execution of his duty, every per son who shall be guilty of such intimidation, threat, violence or interruption, being convicted thereof, shall he fined in a sum not exceeding one thousand dollars, and be imprisoned, not exceeding three months." The statement in the said pamphlet is obnoxious to another objection?in page 8 they s?y. " The report of the House of Representatives, respecting them, (the Elliott certificates) discloses a scene of gross neglect, fraud and corruption throughout the whole process under which they were issued, unparalleled in the history of this country." ? " They then go on to say: " And the Senate in their proceedings, sitting as a High Court of Impeachment under the solemnity of an oath, after a laborious examination of testi mony, and hearing eloquent and able counsel on the part of Judge Elliott, adopted tlie following ar ticles of Impeachment presented by the lower house." In these articles of Impeachment which they set forth at length in their pamphlet, it is among other things stated, that 1748 certificates were unlaw fully und corruptly caused and permitted to be is sued between the 2d March, 1811, and the 1st Jan uary, 1814, and which it is stated in the pamphlet, that the Senate sitting as a High Court of Impeach ment, adopted In place of which, the Court quali fied their condemnation?saying?that the said Benjamin C. Elliott was guilty ol the issuing of some of the said certificates as charged, but not of all." Ten members voting in the affirmative, and four in the negative, "because they believed that the question could not be divided." See page 30 of the Official Journal of this trial. And the Court further resolved, "That the Senate in giving their votes upon the articles of Impeachment in this case, are not to be considered as expressing, and do not intend to ex press an opinion as to the right of the parties pos sessing certificates of naturalization issued from Judge Elliott's Court, to enjoy and exercise the franchise of American Citizens." This resolution is withheld from the pamphlet in question. Here we have evidence that Mr. Freret was mis taken when he said (see page 34,) that the Legis lature had impeached the Elliott certificates. It will not escape notice that the charges against Judge Elliott are limited to a period subsequent to the 2d of March, 1841; and yet all the certificates issued by him for some six or eight years, during whole the whole course of his judgeship, are to be consH dered a nullity, on the authority of these proceed ings, and without regard to the rights ot parties holding them! The aforesaid Thomas Quinn was among the number disfranchised by this act of injustice ; his certificate, (see page 41) was in due form, and as good as any certificate of naturalization granted by any court in the United States, yet he was disfran chised by the arbitrary conduct of the Whig In spectors. Again, this Committee say, that "Previous to the election it was publicly stated, and indeed proclaimed, that the locofoco party were determined, notwithstanding the notorious and acknowledged frauds in issuing the Elliott certificates, that these votes should be received, or they would close the voting in the Whig Wards." So far as I was concerned they are mistaken, as is proved by my proposition to Mr. Freret the day before the election?to examine into the validity of all the Elliott certificates which should be pre sented, rejecting such as should appear to have been improperly granted. Also, by my report to a pub lic meeting held the same evening, of Mr. Freret's Irefusal to agree to this proposition, and his deter mination to reject all the Elliott certificates with out enquiry ; with a notification to the meeting that 1 should not have the capacity to resist any such an act of power; and again, my proposition to leave the questions which might arise to the Whig Judge from whom we derived our appointment; and finally, my letter written to that Judge on the momma ot the election, and before it began, inti mating my wish for another to be appointed in|my place. Can there be stronger evidence that I was not obnoxious to the charge this Committee hnve thought proper to make against all the Democratic Inspectors on the authority of public rumor! As to the supposition that the Elliott voters were hired to go to the polls to interrupt the election? the Committee rely on their own imagination,with out having adduced a particle of proof, and no circumstance has come to my knowledge to war rant the supposition, that any such criminal con duct took place! However probable that men willing to make so grave and fearful a cha-ge against others without the slightest proof, would not balk at committing such acts themselves?1 will not return the compli ment by accusing them of having sent a man to the polls with one of the corrupt Elliott certificates, and what they call a forged receipt to interrupt the election, in tne hope of benefit from the moral in fluence of leading the public to believe the Demo crats had done the vile deed. It is not my province to remark on the other part of the statements put forth in the said pamphlet further than to say, that?the reader of every par ty will be much less likely to afford it his tall cre dence than he would have been?had not the er rors and omission I have pointed out been permit ted to escape the notice of this Committee before they gave their signatures to the public. The Whigs pretend that their intention was to recommend only such foreigners, for naturalize tion as could furnish legal proof of the requi sites for citizenship s?if this be so, let them tell us what is meant by the note of the Secre tary of the Clay Club to Mr Gaiennie written in French, and published in that language on page 39 of the otiicial Journal of Elliott'B trial?and also on cage 8 of thia book?the translation ol which reads thus "Mr'L. U. Gaienne." "A Mr. Martiu and his son have returned irom Lafayette, without having been naturalized. Judge Elliott requiring their witnesses; when you told Mr. Martin it was not necessary . Shall I tell these persons to provide themselves with witnesses." " Your ob't servant," Charles Gurnet. The Whigs threaten if they get into .power that they will repeal all the naturalization laws; if they should do this?such repeal could not apply to those who shall have had recorded, a declaration to become citizens?as the declaration would se cure a vested right. Hence it behoves every per son now in the United States who was born in a foreign laud, as also all those who shall hereafter arrive in the United States, tofmake the declara tion before a Court ol competent jurisdiction with out the least delay. Jacob Barker. Thk Yacht Squadron.?The harbor of this fashionatile watering place (Newport, R. I.), has been enlivened, for the last few days, by the appearance of the yacht squadron or New YotR, and the crack (ail ing craft of Botton. The admirer* of boat failing in New York, with a view to the better encouragement of build er* and other artists, have organised thamse.ves into a Club, and elected John C Stevens, Esq., of New York, as their Commodore. As lar as I can learn, the squadron now consists of the following boats:? Oimcrack, Stevens, owner, 34 tons, schooner. Cygnet, F.dgars, " 45 " " Spray, Wilkes, " " Mist, Depeatt, " 45 " " Dream, Scnuylcr, " 38 " " LaCoquille, Jay, " 36 " " Minus, Waterbury, " Tetrel, Rollins, " 7 " sloop. In addition to these, there have been here, at different times, the lielle, schooner, 78 tons, formerly a pilot boat of Boston, chattered by Mr. Foibes, of Boston, with a party of his friends?the Northern Light, Colonel Win chester, 70 tons?and the Labcet, 33 tons, Mr. Swett? also, two sloops, used as ireighting vessels on the North River and vicinity ol New York, one of which was chartered by some gentlemen of that city. It had been announced in the newspapers, that a Regatta, for all Yachts, was to come off nt Newport, on a given day?but no arrangement ot the kind had been made In isct, it was an experimental trial of the qualities of the various boats of the New York Squadron, most of which were on their first cruise. Various trials of speed had taken place, between the vessels of the squadron, on their cruise from New York, and with them and the Belle, be fore my arrival at this place?and, as the reports of their results are so various and so contradictory, 1 tefer you to the Newport papers for the accounts of the same The Yachts from New Yoik are flne looking beats?and their models essentially different Irom anything seen on your side of Cape Cod. Some of them have centre boards?a machine which, in my Judgment, entirely alters the char acter of the vessel, and which should not be tolerated in any boat that pretends to sail in blue water. The boat of the Commodore, the Oimcrack, is well entitled to her name. It would be idle for me, in the limits of a single letter, to describe her peculiarities, and contrivances, to enable her to go ahead?and, inasmuch as it is probable that her highly scientific and liberal owner will abandon these notions, and build for himself a vessel according to legitimate rules, adapted to the high position to which he lias been unanimously chosen, I pass ;al 1 bet oddities by. The handsomest boat in the squadron, to the sailor's eye, and the admitted fastest boat, Is the Cygnet. Her rig is that of our Boston boats, but her model is entirely differ ent. In interior arrangements, the New York boats are entirely different from ours. They cannot carry so many?but the passengers they do take have the comforts of shore life, with the excite ment of the sea. We commend their interior to the careful scrutiny of our builder* and their employers. As I have before mentioned, the t>oats had various trials of speed, before the arrival of the Northern Light. This splendid vacht, so well known to all the amateurs of your city, arrived at Newport on Thursday night, alter a pas sage of fifty three hours?fourteen of which were passed at anchor, between Bandy Point and Nantucket Light, in a dense fog. Therestof the time she had light ana head winds and tides. On Friday morning the wind blew from South and Southwest. Col. Winchester ordered his boat under weigh at 11 o'clock, and expressed his desire to try the speed ol his yacht with thai of any vessel of the squad ron, or the sloop, which I mentioned before. The wind, however, was too much, in the estimation of (he gentle men, lor any of them to venture out?aud the Light, there fore, stood out alone. He put on her three Sail*, passed Beaver Tail Light, close hauled, stood some eight or nine miles to windward and returned, sailed twice across Newport harbor, and came to anchor. On Saturday the wind was from about the same point, but net so fresh?and at,the invitation of the owners of the Cygnet, the Light and Cygnet stood out, in order to try their powers. It was agreed by the respective owners of the boats, that the trial snotild commence at Beaver Tail Light, thence dead to windward. The Cygnet stood out some twenty minutes ahead, under her iib and mainsail, the Light, following Two miles to the leeward of Beaver Tail Light the North ern Light act her foresail and stood for the Cygnet, which boat had come to under her three sails The Northern Light passed Under the stern oi the Cygnet and came to, taking a leeward position directly abreast of the Cygnet, and about twenty-flve yards distant?time 3 o'clock 30 minutes. The Cygnet filled away immediately, which movement was followed by the Northern Light, and both boat* stood out with the larboard tacks aboard. The wind modera'e, with some sea. Alter standing on this tack for about a mile, the Northern Light tacked, leaving the Cygnet to leeward, and astern some distance. At 18 minutes past three, the Northern Light hauled her jib sheet to windward, at which time the Cygnet was to lee ward and astern. At 38 minutes past 3, the Cygnet was I abreast of the Northern Light It will be seen, therefore, that in a race of 48 minutes, while both boats stood on their course, the Northern Light had beaten the Cygnet ten minutes. Tho time allowed in the K.nglish yacht races, by the largest to the smallest boat, is a minute a ton, in a race of fifty miles. It will be seen that the Light beat the Cygnet even more than the difference to be al lowed for her tonnage. That the Northern Light would beat the Cygnet, was expected by those who knew the capacity of the former boat?lint that the difference in their performances should be so great, was unexpected by all; especially by the gen tlemanly proprietor* of the Cygnet, who had, in t'.ieircontest with the Belle, fair reason to believe them selves iqttal, at least, to that boat which was said to be superior to the Northern Light in all situations?a matter, however, which is somewhat doubtful, a* the Belie and the Northern Light have never had n trial of speed with each other. The seal and interest manifested by the members of the New York squadron, give great hopes that their Club will increase in numbers, and be worthy of the great commercial city to which it belong*, t think, from what I observed, that the members tf the squadron will not, however, he satisfied with the present size of their boats?and that another year will show our Boston amateurs craft of a tonnage that may fairly expect to try the fastest of our boats, in all weather*.?Nttcporl Lrittr to Bmton, Jluf. 13.

Equestrian Exercise?A Pathetic Story of the Heart. Dkar Sir I am now in the queen city, the seat of the wes tern empire. It is indeed a beautiful city, but the streets are in a worse state than the streets of any other city in this country, or in any other within my knowledge. They are paved with lime stone, and so numerous are the excavations mads by car riages passing over them, that it is almost impossi ble to move faster than a walk. For the last two miles of our journey to this city, we moved along with a slow hearse like pace. The driver in formed me that they never could drive through the city faster than a walk But we had a very lively company of passengers on board; General Cass and Senator Norvall of Michigan, were among the pas sengers. General Cass on his way from Columbus to this place, stopped a few hours at Hamilton, and addressed a large enthusiastic meeting ol the de mocracy. He is on his way to Tennessee, to pay his respects to the hero of New Orleans " to see the old general once more belore he dies. He was not expected to be at Hamilton. We arrived there about twelve o'clock on Tuesday laBt; an immense procession had been formed, and were moving on with their cheering music and lloating banners. Soon s>,er we arrived, I informed one of the Marshals of the day that General Cass had just arrived. In live minutes the word was passed along the line for two miles; each division giving nine cheers for the de fender of our country's glory. The multitude as sembled on the green nenr the Court house, and a young man, whom we did not know, introduteu the General to the crowd, and made some very ap propriate remark respecting the character and ser vices of him who was about to address them. 1 ne General arose, and the multitude gave three times three hearty cheers. He then addressed the au dience for more than hour. It was one of the finest efforts I have heard for a long time. I was stand ing near him during the whole of hi? speech, and 1 have seldom seen an audience more delighted. Mr. Todd, the candidate lor Governor, followed Gen Cass in a very enthusiastic speech of one hour and a hall. Several others were to speak when we left. General Cass and Senator Norvall addressed a large and enthusiastic meeting in this city on Thursday evening. Both parties are awake in this part of the country. You may rely upon it there will be a hard fought battle here this fall Both parties are confident of success. Riding on horseback seems to be a lavorile amusement for the young people here. 1 resolved last evening to take a ride into the country at an early hour this morning, and accordingly ordered a carriage to be ready at hall-past lour. We were ready at the hour appointed, und took our course in a north-west direction, over the hor rid pavements of the city. After riding about two miles, we found one of the finest roads in the country.SWe rode leisurely along, turning our eyes iu every direction, as is usual when travelling a road for the first time. When we were about three miles fromjthe city.we saw,a mile behind us. six gentlemen and ladies, with their horses in full run. Iu a few minutes they came up and shot by uh with a speed that almost made me shudder. The lady that led the. race was seated on a large black hone, apparently well trained to the course. She sat with as much composure, at the speed ol a mile in three minutes, as if she had been seated I on the sofa in her parlor. Her lover (as we sup pose) was close at her side, but two or three leet in the rear. The other lour were close in the rear. This exceeded any thing I have ever seen in Eng land. Such rapid riding must he attended with a great deal ot danger. A young lady, a lew months ngo, in this place, was thrown lrom her horse, and killed ins'antly. She was to have been married on the day she was buried. . An almost runaway marriage came oil in this place a few days ago. A young man formerly lrom New York, had |secured the affections ol a beauti ful young heiress of this place. She was an only daughter?the idol of her parents. They objected to the match, and determined, If possible, lo pre vent it. They coaxed, and hired, and promised; and when they found that would not do, they threatened. Still she declared ahc loved the young man, arid would marry him. They told her then she should leave their house, and that Ihey would disinherit her. She wasunder the ageot eighteen, und could not be married without the consent ol parents. This legal provision they attempted to avoid. The young lady left the house ot her la ther, and in one hour was on her way with her lover to another State. On arriving there they found the same legal prohibitions. They returned to this city incog, went or bovd one ?t the steam boats, and were about to leave to ny to some more congenial spot, where hymen s gentle i cord could be entwined "without a why or wherefore." They were discovered, and were sent to the father, who came with an officer to arrest his daughter. The matter soon became noised abroad, and thousands gathered around the boat to see the sport. They had agreed to tell her father if they were discovered, that they were married. This worked well. ?When the father came on board Hie boat with the officer, attended by several friends, the voung lady stepped forward, took her lather by the hand, kissed him affectionately, then turning to her lover, said, " lather, this is my husband. The father made no reply, but ai he looked upon the young man, then lurked upon hie lip the curl ot in dignation. " Father, I love him," she continued ; " 1 will live with htm, or die for htm if necessary; he is my equal in every respect, and more dear to me than all the world besides. I love you?I love my dear mother?1 should be ((lad to inherit your wealth?but 1 cheerfully resign all [or him. I am willing to foisake yon for ever lor mm, and not only would I leave a lather, but even a mother, and houses and landa for him. Besides Ins, all friendahip is cold, and without his presence this world is as dreary as the tomb. Father, do you wish to make your daughter happy Mnst sure ly I do," said the father. " Then,'' said the daugh ter, "recognize this young man as your son and the lawful husband ol your daughter, and I am happy." The tears began to flow copiousJy from the eyes of the father, as he hi l<l bis daughter's hand and listened tother burning elo quence "My daughter," said the father, I ?ui> pose it is too late now lor me to object. lake ine young man with you to our carriage, which stands on the shore, and go to our house I shall be .there in a few minutes, and we will try to settle the whole matter." "Most surely," said the daughter, and taking the arm of her lover, she was handed into the carriage, and soon drove on to the splendid mansion of Judge F. The consent of the parents was obtained?a license procuied-the^ clergyman sent for, and the marriage, as the father thought, re-sole mailed. The young married couple are now enjoying the sweets of the honeymoon?caressed by Iriends, and almost envied by all their ac quaintances. Youts, in haste, C. Liestm. Fatat.

Since I left New York, now two weeks, 1 have wandered over a goodly part ol Connecticut, and am thus fur in the interior ol the old Bay State. The inhabitants of this section of country, you arc well aware, have ever been celebrated lor their piety and good morals; and it we lind here, at times, individuals debased and blackened with crimes, they are but exceptions to a general rule, and tend to give a brighter and clearer hue to the remainder. The people, too, are remarkably well informed?their excellent school system having done more here to elevate the masses, thin in any other county on the lace of the globe. Even .the children who have scarcely entered their teens will keep up as regular and connected a conversation ou general subjects as many grey-headed men, who arrogate to themselves much learning Even the little prattling children are posset-Bed ol a quickness and sagacity, a kind of innate knowledge of things which is truly astonishing. This is not confined to that class either, who sre evei striving to ioice knowledge upon their offspring prematurely, but those children which tire allowed to "come up ' hs contradistinguished to be "brought up," (i e.) ihoee growing up without any particular care or inten tion, or possessed of the same Hiitness and quick wittedness, or as it might be called "mother wit." The philosophy ol this 1 do not understand, and willingly leave it to wiser heads to account lor. Of the benutilul and quiet city of New llaven. your readers want no information, lis beautiful green aud peaceful walks, overhung and shaded by the wide spreading elms, forming, as they stretch forth their lengthened and fibrous arms, a gothic arch, of most elaborate workmanship, surpassing in beauty, grandness and extent, the triumphal arches of old Koine, erected to do homage to her Cicsars. A fit place, indeed, lor the temple ol learning, is this city of elms, and the solemn and quiet grandeur with which these majestic forest trees bend and bow, and I suppose whisper and hold convers.' with each other, seem to impart a kind of fearful solemnity to the inhabitants; L?r iu stead of seeking these pleasant walks snd agree able shade, or inhaling the cool and refreshing breeze of evening, as the bright and silvery moon peeping through the green foliage, stops to catch the sound of lovers' voices, smiling, hides itself again behind some fleeting cloud. 1 say, instead of all this, these walks are deserted?nothing enjoys this delightful shade but the green gram beneath, and the bright moon Iihh nothing to smile upon but towering spires and college walls. Alas! ihat all life nnd animation should be driven from the bo soms of those inhabiting such a beautiful place. The railroad rout Irom New Haven to Hartford is a very agreeable one,though the land, much ot the distance, is poor und sterile. Hartford has mote the appearance of business than New Haven, and here, too, in order to rival Yale, is sitnuted W ish, ington College, the grounds of which lo me, are far more beautiful and appropriate than those about the elder temple. Beside the new Watlswortli Athenicum, a noble structure, there are many things worthy of note, but 1 will leave them for a fu ture letter 1 arrived in Springfield on the day of the great whig mass convention, und although my love runs a little in that direction, yet I must con fess I was sadly disappointed in the numbers and enthusiasm. To see the military turn out lo guard and escort un assemblage not equal in numbers to those in New York of either party, on most any occasion, seemed curious enough. Daniel Web ster addressed the convention in one of his heavy, loagy, dull speeches, which elicited no feeling or enthusiasm, In fact, it wns a dull, insipid affair, and which no one, except the hotel-keeper* and the loco-focos, appeared satisfied with.

Curious Prockeihnos at the Burial ot Cornk, the Kenhsklakk " Indian."?A corres|>ondent of the Albany Atlas, writing from East Nassau, Aug. 12, gives an account of the luueral ol young Corse, a journeyman shoemaker disguised as un Indian, who was killed by h fall from his hnrse during the late conference of Gov. Bouck with the tenants ot the young Patroon. He says: "the time desig nated for the ceremony was less than twtniy-lour hours alter the fatal termination ol the accident; vet on arriving at the church a little before two, 1 found a very large number of inen, women and children, who had come lrom all parts ol the sur rounding country. Conspicuous among them wns the celebrated Indian force They were on horse back, riding two and two, in costume and masked; and at a little distance, made a strange and some what formidable appearance. Tin chiefs, of win m there were four or live, rode in advance, and were distinguished from the simple warriors by a greater |vrofusion of red, blue and black stripes, and bits of cloth sewed upon their calico dresses. 1 counted tliein*-nincty nix in number?rank and file ; and as this was a day of parade, this in probably their whole number. They escorted the corpse, and between two ol the chiefs rode one ot the minis ters who was to officiate. The musicians w? re in another waggon, with two Iihsh drums, a bugle and other instruments. By this time, there were about two thousand live hundred people on the ground. " The band rode up to the green where the ser vices were to be performed. The war Chief gave the order to dismount?saying, 'Let some of the white men tie your horses.' Upon hearing this or der, many of the spectators seized the homes with great alacrity. The corpse was p'.aced on a bier, in the centre ol the green The Indians formed a circle around it, and the relatives of the deceased were admitted into the centre. The two official clergymen mounted a wagon, from which Un horses had been detached, and the chief din cted the spectators to keep silent, and requested the ministers to begin. Their remarks were in gene ral appropriate. One ot thern called the Indians "an association, contending for liber'y and free men"?but afterwards seemed to ilmik better of it, and towards the close addressed them particu larly?saying, that it was not for a man in his sta tion to express an opinion as to the correctness of their proceedings, hut he hoped the death of iheir companion woula teach them a lesson ol caution? caution in all their deliberations und in all their ac tions. "All that wished having gazed upon the de ceased, the band formed into a procession, preced ed by music as before, and took its way towards the burying ground. "They formed a circle around tin- grave, and the deceased warrior being deposited, one of ilie chiefs designated as ' the Prophet of the irihe,' ad dressed the people. He entered into an explana tion ol the object of the association. They were contending for the freedom of which n usurper hud deprived them. They were not contending sgeirnt the usur|>er himerll, but against the wrong, and ie sistanceto that wrong had grown into a principle, and as long as that principle existed, th< y would never lay down fh-* st?*el nnd the gun. They wi-tc not contending for their own rights merely, but tor the benefit of their neighbors also: that they were blood connections ol many who stood around them, anil he assured their white brethren that nlih ough they were obliged to darken tb-ir faces, they h id hearts like their white brethren.
