THE NEW YORK HERALD. Prle? Two Cento* Rhode Island Mass Meeting !!! IN FAVOR OV DEMOCRACY AND DORR. Five Thousand Ladies in the Field, AND THIRTY THOU8AND FREEMEN. The Military Ordered Out. The State Prison Guarded with Cannon! This extraordinary and exciting assemblage took place on Wednesday at Providence. The steamboat Norwich, Capt. DoJge, was chartered by a pertiou ol the citizens of this city to convey them to the city oi Providence, and left on Tuesday evening at six o'cluck, crowded with passengers, there being, at least, eight hundred on board. An excellent band oil mnsic was provided, and the steamboat was decorated with various banners containing mottoes iilustmtive of Democratic principles, in cluding an excellent porrait of Governor Thomas W. Dorr, as he has recently appeared while under going the sentence of the law. As the steamboat passed down the East river, she was saluted by the steam boat bells at each of the wharves, which was returned i>y the cheers of the passengers. On passing the North Carolina, the shtonds were manned by the apprentice beys who gave thtee cheers tor the Delegates of the Democratic Convention, which were return ed by a salute from a gun on board the steamboat, and the stentorian voices of the passengers. Soon after starting from the first lauding, it was discover ed that the celebrated Mike Walsh, the hero of the "Chepaichet battle'1 under Governor Dorr, waa on board, and consequently much excitement was created among those who were timid aud partially alarmed at th'ir position. He was urged to leave the boat at D.hwcj street and Williamsburg,where she stopped, but refused and remained oa board; although he said he had no intention of going to Providence when the boat left Warren street. Tne "Tenth Ward itoarer" which wes placed on the bow of the boat salu ted the cr ud* that were assembled on the wharves aud piers, which were returned with the hearty cheer* of the assemblages The boat was crammed to ov^rtlo- iug, and such a scramble for berths, matirasses and settees was never seen except on board a North ltiver steam boat, when the fare was"fifty cents and found." The night on the ?ouud v*us beautiful and clear, the moon shone sil very br slit, and as the boat struggled through the waters with her hundred souls, she seemed a thing of life breathing and snortiug through the ocean brine. After (f pleasant run with a light breeze from the north eaBt, she approached Providence at about 9 o'clock in the morning, and arrived at the wharf at 10, under the salute of artillery, martial music, and the cheers of the dense assemblage. The proceeeion was soon formed as follows i? Chief Msntnl. Cavalcado of Kilty Horsemen. Music. Committee of Recaption, anil Invited Quests. ( hiplains and Clergyman. Committee of Arrangements.

They proceeded through the principal streets of the. city, accompanied by banners and devices, and numbered in procession 6,731. The New York delegation werewarmly received, and espe cially so by the ladies, to whom the Marshal, Dr. Fenelon Hasbrouck, was continuously com pelled to return thanks, by calling tor the cheers ol the delegation. The portrait of Governor Dorr taken to represent his pale and wan expression of countenance while laboring under confinement, which was enclosed in an elegant Irame and carried at the head of the New York delegation, attracted universal a'tention, and many a tear was seen to trickle down the cheeks ot the beautiful ladies who were watching the progress of the procession from their dwellings, wtule his robust friends, who were spectators, cheered its appearance at every point. This por trait?the ladies, and the revolutionary soldiers, were the great points of interest in the procession. Among the banners, we noticed the following, carried by the ladies,which fully evince their spiri ted leeling on this occasion:?"We are Rhode Island women?friends of Liberty, Freedom, and equal an<l just laws " " If this be treason, make the most of it," &c. In the male part ot the pro cession were the following, aniong others: "T. W. Dorr?1 will not compromise the people's rights." "On,Rhode I?laurijwoe?Whiggery has done this." This banner ..-untamed a representation ot tne tern, pie of Libei iy destroyed by a thunder-bolt from the internal regions. Another contained the words, "Sacred to the memory of Jonathan J. Cilley." Another, "Our country is dear, but Liberty is dearer" Another, " Rhode Island?the that sow eth in tears nil*11 reap in joy." The procession passed in full view ot the state prison where Dorr is confined, which is also used as a county jail, debtor's prison, alms house, luna tic asylum, and penitentiary. Fr?m thence they proce?Jtd through North, Main and Smith streets to thv Piuckuey Farms, the place selected for the vast astemiihgc to couvene, which is about a mile nottbwea- ol the city, on the hill at tne rear of the prison. The spot selected for the speakers was in n valley, forming an nmphitheatncal view from each side, covering a space of about ten acres, which was fitted with spectators, including several hundred I dies, who occupied the centre of the vast as?enibl?*', with Mike Walsh in their midst, directly in uout ot the Speaker's stand. A plat form was erented at the toot ot the valley, on which a tmi'J of music was stationed te enliven the scene. Tue utmost order prevailed?not a drop ot lutoii caring t.^uor was sold on the ground, nor was a person present who appeared to be laboring under lis effects. The m ;euug was organized by the selection ot Gen. Thomas F. Carpintk*, as President, and thirty-one Vice Presidents, being one from each tewn in the State, and five Secretaries. The Pre stdent called upon the Rev. Eldbr Waxeman, ot the Methodist Episcopal church, of Cumberland, to address the throne of Grace, which he did as follows:? "Almighty and everlasting (tod,who holdeth the seeptre over tbe destinies of men, and goveriiLth Kingdoms b> Tby mighty power. Ws rejoice, O Lord, that we have thus Isr travelled the jouruey of Ufa, although surround ed with temptation and evil. We rejoice that the light ol glorious day is yet permitted to snina on the soil of Rhode Island.

(Some ot the spectators here loudly cried, " Amen.") Thou knowett.

They contained an c-mbodinient of the principles ao<4 vicwh of the snf frage party, baaed upon the political fabric of the sovereignty of the people to change, alter, or modi fy their constitution ai.d their iaws.wlienever a ma jority of said people shall desire it. They also con tained a solemn protest against the incarceration ?f Governor Dorr?against the election of Henry Clay, and against the recent A'gerine law of the State demanding a property qualification trom natu ralized citizens betore they could be eutitled to the right ot suffrage, whiic the negroes of the Slate were entitled to vote without such pro perty qualification. A resolution was also passed sympathizing with Daniel G'Connell for his impri sonment in the cause of liberty, and hoping tor a speedy restoration. Another, protesting .igainst tiie imprisonment of jvurtin Luther, a citizen ot Rhode Island, who had been iucaicerated by the Algerine government for acting as chairmen ef a suffrage meeting, but who has appealed to the Su preme Court of the United States for a reversal ot the judgment against him. Another, in favor of the election of Folk and Dallas, and their princi ples, closed the list. The resolutions were unanimously adopted by the hearty cheers ot the vast assemblage. The President then introduced, with the deafen inic cheers of the audience, Governor IiufisiKD, of New Hampshire, who 'pokesa follow* My heart it too lull on this great and interest ing occasion?it Is borne town with feelings of the great est iannex*, and overwhelmed with lorrow.

I have douo nothing but my duty, and 1 will die iu the chum of popular liberty." (Great cheering.) The ipeaker here aeixed a banner borne by the ladies, and i aiting it in the air, repeated it* motto?" If thia he tr> a son," syn, " Ii thl* bo treason, why, 1< t them make the moit ol it." What moral power has brought such an siembWge together on this occssion ^ Pre?ia?ut CA*pssT?a here interrupted the saving that he wa> compelled thu* to act, in order to pre ?ent him with an elegant bouquet of flower*, culled by the band of a suffrage lady *? a mark of approbation of his manly coarse iu protecting Governor Dorr while ho was an exile from hi* native State. (Cheer* ) Gavernor ItuaaAao received the bouquet, ar.d raising it, in hi* hind, repeated sgam the banner motto ol the Indie* 1 If thl* bo treason, make the most of it " (Cheer* ) Then turning te the beautiful donor, he *aid, " In isturn, for thia, I have only to any 11 my flrat boinion win pre sent, 1 thould *ay to him, gi?e thi* ljdy "yiur heart nod your hand." (Grout and enthusiastic applause) I asy to you ladies, your Dorr will bo set at libeity, ami as a me me.nto of yourapprovsl ol my cour?e,l shall take this bou quet to my New Hampshire homo, and trust that twlore it* heaut in* have faded my worda will prove verified. (Cheers ) The Governor then |roceeded to comment upon his own ?our*e of conduct in refusing to deliver Governor Dorr to the snthoritias of Rhode Island, snd gave a* arenaon thai he believsd ne offonce had been committed, and thst ii there had, thi* refusal made himjsa guilty of treason as Governor Derr. If this was trsason, said he, let them make tha moat of It. (Cheara ) He then reviewed the principles ol fovarnsnant, with the oondeosed remark ss applicable to Rhode Island, thst Iks people framed govern muuts, not governments the people?that sovereign ty existed with the people,. eumc Irom the people, <iud no earthly power, txcapt that sustained by tyrauoy and oppression, could tuk? it irom the people. (Great applatuu.) H? continued?my heart bleeds lor Dorr ; but he rn.iy sink in eh by inch under the chains ol his oppress ors, yet the cause ot human libo'ty will not be stated? not a cloud can eii'ictuaily distai litho poiiucal horizon. The cruel aud oppressive sentence may destroy his life? but the death ol one man, in *uci? ? cause, will aJd gljry and triumph to the crusvn ol Ireedoio, white his oppressors will s.nk iuto oblivion. (Cheers and applause.) lie then alluded to the 1'resideiitial contest, urged the support ol Polk and Dallas as oueol llie great political uioT.ra* uts oi thu day, calculated to aid th? objects lor which this iiueunrf was organized. [Here u lady tainted in the croivd, hut was soon revived) hi contrast to this, he continued, wkat says Henry Clay to the acts of the suliiago party 7 He hud sai'l that "they struck at thu foundation of all safety and security ot ci vilized society." God foibid that tuch a sentiment should emanate from .ho heart oi . ny man who professes to be an American freemen. (Loud cheers.)? Ag* n*t such doctriuM I shall ever contend while m pri vate liie, aud also in my public capacity, if i ever again should bo so placed, which 1 little t xpect at | resent, ..s 1 told my distinguished lueud (turning to Governor Mor ton) that whou he returned to pubiio lile, 1 would also. That ti lend, Morion oi Massachusetts, is here. (Great aud enthusiastic cheering from the Perhaps this is treason, if so, let them make the inost uf it. (Ap plause.) He then closed with a stirring appeal in favor oi the annexation ot Texas, the occupation of Uregon, and the election of Polk and Dallas. The President then iutruduced Auiikoh Wells, ?sq , of the New Ycik delegation, whe spoke as follows : ? bellow Democratic Ladies and Gentlemen ! 1 have seen many a gladdening aud exoitlng scene, but never before have I seen sucu a scene as this. (Laughter and applause) We New Yorkers can.e here to day expecting to be met by Algerines, but the blooming beauty rohd fra ?rant flowers with which we have been received, betoken .hode Island not to be an Aigerine desert, but oueol the flower gardens of America. (Great applause, in which tho ladies joined most heartily ) These chicken hearted gen tlemen had undertaken to excite fears, relative to the in tended visit ol a portion ol what is called the unterrifled democracy of New York. (Laughter.) Yes. we are a part oi the unterrifled democracy of New York, but we ure terrific against none but the opposers ol human liber ty. (Cheers) We expected to be received by armed soldiers, and we were prepared to meet them, but not with arms, except with those double arms that always accompany the cause of justice. (Applause) But I am too hsbty?we were received with arms and heart* that beat iu your bosoms, anxious for political freedom to your native State. (Cheer upon oheer.) We came here to day, myself armed with a little hickory stick, cut from the farm ot James K. Polk, (cheeis,) in favor of the suffrage party oi Rhode Island. We cauie here not to dictate, but to advise and cheer you on in the great struggle for liberty and popular rights. (Applause.) We cauie here, not to frighten these w Lite livered tyrants, (cheers) but to extend our sympathies to your entombed patriot. (Cheers.) His oppressors have imprisoned his body, but they cannot imprison bis noble aud patriotic heart. The speaker then drew a contrast be tween the recent alteration in the Constitution ol New Jersey, by the people in their sovereignty,and the opposing ucts of tiie government of Rhode Island, aided by United Btates troops, in suppressing the lights ol the people, as similarly exercised m the latter State, and contended that the government of New Jersoy wou.d now have the lame right to violate the expressed wish of the people. He con cluded with aa eloquent appeal in lavor of the rights guaranteed to the sovereign peaplo, and uiged their com bined energies and influence iu proving themselves wor thy of that ireedom to which they were entitled. (Great applause.) jomn C. Smith, Junior, next addressed the immense audience in an eloquent speech on the topics con nected with the meeting, and urged strongly the eltction of James K Polk, as an argument in favor of the libera tion ot Governor Dorr. The President then introduced the Hon. Makcui Moa rerr, ex Governor ol Massachusetts, who, he said, was born in the cradle of liberty?but yet he was no inlant in the cause of liberty. ? The Govaanoa dwalt briefly, but with much severity, on the law of the legislature of Rhode Island, pa sed alter the difficulties in the State, by which the prisoner was re moved for trial from the county iu which the offence was commuted. He urged acquiescence in the present laws, until the force of public opinion stiutk them Irom the statuto books. He deprecated all violations of law in at tempts to change the condition ot Governor Dorr, but ex horted his friends to labor, without ceasing, to produce that moral efl'ect that would soon unbar thu doors of his gloomy prison. At tni8 period speakers were engnged at various parts uf the acres uf people. Among them we no ticed Mr. Banks of Massachusetts, Mr. Joyc&lyn und Mr. Niwiuh ol New York. Mr. Parmkntikk of Rhode Inland, aud others, wlioce names we could not obtain. Letters Irom General Jackson, James Buchanan, Martin Van Buren, Colonel Johnson, Silas Wright, and others, approving oi the objects of the meeting, were read amid the enthusiastic cheers of the vast concourse. The New Yor* delegation, accompa nied by an escort of about two hundred horsemen, left the ground about 4 o'clock, and were received on their route through the city to the steamboat Norwich, by the sparkling eyes and euchautkg s.niles tithe suffrage ladies, who accompanied their manifestations of favor by the waving of their 'kerchiefs and other sdlututioi s. We passed by the prison yard where Tov. Dorr is confined, and perceived that Governor Fenner had ordered out several military companies who were secrectly enclosed in the prison yard and in their armories at the upper part of the city. Several pieces of artillery were stationed in front of the pri son, and the soldiers who bad them in charge, were as ungenilemanly and ill-mannered as iheAlgeruies on the coast of Barbary. To a gentleman who asked a civil question, such as every citizen soldier would be bound to answer, he received the presen tation of a six barrel pistol to his breast with direc tions to make himself scarce or rink the consequen ces. The gentleman, who wasaNew Yorker, gave the f How a contemptuous look irom head to loot, nearly choked himself in the attempt to swallow his indignation, and walked away, thanking him self he was not a citizen of Providence, Rhode Inland. Crowds of persons were scattered about the prison during the day, and from one of the cells, supposed to be jhat of Governor Dorr, a white handkerchief, marked with stripes and htars with a piece ot charcoal, was every n<w and then thrust forth, as if to satisfy the spectators that the inmate whs rejoicing iu spirit although Ins body was entombed in a dungeon. The Norwich left the wharf at Providence for New York at about half-past four o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, and arrived in this city the next morning at tin early hour, with an over flowing rurgo, including Mike Wah-h, the hero of Chepatchet, and Charley Newman, tus gallant aid. Yacht Race.?The second trial of speed be tween the two celebrated yachts, Kelle, commo dore Forbes, and the Northern Light, commander Win Chester, came olT in onr harbor yesterday afternoon. The conditions wem that they should sail on the wind lour hoars, the Belle having the choice of position?the first tack to be not less than ten, nor exceeding thirty minutes ?neither boat, after the first tack, to stand on an; one tack lunger than thirty minutes?and to tuck, within that time, at will. At the expiration of four hours, the woa. thermost boat to put her helm hard down, and draw her jib hard to windward?and the time noted, which it would take the leeward boat to reach her, with her t oat book At five o'clock and 1ft minutes, says the Atlas, off Little Nahsnt, the Belle put her helm hard down, and drew her jib hard to windward, t<nd at 6 o'clock and 34 minute* the Northern Light ranged along aide of her. The result of the match may be thus statedin the race of four hours, on the wind, the Belle beat the Light nine minutes. The Ksition of the two boats at present stands thus In a ish breeze of wind and a heavy ses, the Northern Light heat the B<-lle. In a light breeze and smooth water the Belle ha* beaten the Northern Light.?Bo. ton Trantcript, S'pt 4. The Season.-The weather is still aa warm as rammer?the days are more like June than those of September. We need rain, though vegetation is not differing. The river feels the effect of the dry weather. The water is so low that the smsll boats sre now com pelled to go to Castleton bar to relieve the day hoata ? Aa thia is the week of low tide, thia obstruction in the navigation will probably continue through the week.? Albany Argui, Sept. ft "Lo! the Poor Indian."?Joc-o sot. the Walk ing Bear, a famous Sauk chief, ot stalwart frame and nable hearing, was. a twelve month or more ago, per suaded by some incculat ntr Varketi to abandon liia wild retreats end simple savage lilt- and submit to exhibitions of himself in the principal cities. At Cincinnati he wa? introduced on thn theatrical boards, and in a class ol plays got up to reprssent Indian life, ha enacted the prin cipal characters with considerable success.

Leslie Coombs, of Kentucky, would address the whig party of this city, caused a pretty strong muster of the party last evening atihe National Hall. About eight o'clock the room became well filled, and shortly after, the company begun to be rather uproarious in the de mand for the commencement of the business of the evening; slicks and feet were beat on the floor, to no limited extent. Alter some time, Dr. Bur rows, Vice President of the Fourth Ward Clay Club, came on the platform and said that General Coombs had only arrived a short time before in town; havisg on the previous day spoken at several places, he was very much fatigued?but that he would be present in a short time, and hoped in the mean while, if there were any singers in ihe room, they would step forward and amuse the meeting. Upon thin, a tall, dirty-looking individual, with vacuums for ventilating under each arui and on the elbows of his coat and in snndry parts of his pants, with a beard of at least a week's growth, and a tace that one might have sup(-osed not to have known what soap or water was to come in contact with for a fortnight, presented himself on the platform to sing a song; but his very Hp pearance created such abun<t ot laughter that, alter standing like a monument for some time, he was obliged to sit down without accomplishing his ob ject. After some further delay, during which time several parties were called for without success? Mr. Henry M. Parsons, member of the Fourth Ward Clay Club, came forwatd and addressed ihe meeting at some length, evidently speaking Against time, so as to give an opportunity for nobler game to follow. Aid. McMullsn, of Albany, succeeded Mr. Par sons, evidently with the same object, and dilated upon the usual questions?was in f ivorof a protec tive tariff and against annexation; in favor of the distribution of the proceeds of ihe public lands and for the limitation of the vrto pawer, and in every other respect a trus Whig,as they were a short nine since. The gentleman having dilated on these points for about a quarter of an hour, loud cheers irem a large parly outside announced the arrival of General Coombs, who shortly after entered the room and was received witu three times three cheers. Gen. L. Coombs then eame forward, amidst vo ciferous cries of '-to tbe street," which was resist ed by a few on and around the platform, but at

length the General was appealed to, who said that he was then laboring und*r a severe hoarsenes*? that he had been addressing large meeting* for the past lew days in the open air, which he would pre fer on this occasion, and he had no doubt but that in the space of a few minuteB he would be suffi ciently recovered to address them. The meeting; then adjourned to the street, and in front of the National Hall we found a few deal planks nailed together on the top of a large ash stump. Here the orators of the evening mounted, and the reporter* (our corps alone) with some dif ficulty squeezed themselves, the others dreading the pressure of the mob around to endeavor to reaeh the desired spot, until for some time afterwards.? Then it was found that there were no lights to aid us in our endeavors cxceptthe feint glimmer of the lamps in front of the house, which, together with the vibration cf the light platform, rendered our task one ot no ordinary Jilficulty. At this time there could not be fewer than 2.500 persons present. After seme trifling delay the orator ol the evening proceeded as lollows Fellow citizen* -You must be aware from the *ound of my voice that 1 am scarcely able to address you on this occaiion, and particularly ao aa I am to be the principal talker of the evening. My being called here waa quite unexpected to myself, aa I came to thin city aolely on buiineaa, but through the iolicitation of frienda I have been compelled to devote my humble talenta to the great cauia ot the country, an well in peace aa I have btslore in war (Ap plauie.) Gentlemen, I am no politician?I never wai in my life?nor em I an ottioe holder?nor did I ever receive any of the public treasury except auch aa waa voted to me by both Houses of Congress, and approved by Gen eral Jackxon, for the blood I apilt in the defence of my country during the laat war. (Applause and cheers ) Gentlemen, I am almost a stranger among you, but have seen since I have been here a few acquaintances who have favored me with their patronage, ami I trust that my l<olitical harangue here to night will not cause them to abandon ine and my business (Cries of no, no.) I see here a amall volume oi humat: society before me, compos ed as I suppose of the three great arms of human labor, and among which, I presume, the agricultural arm has the least representation. That is an important arm to the body politic, and ia sometimes called the back bone of the nation. (Applause) But, gentlemen, you well know that (ew things on this earth are ell back bone. (Ap plause ) The farmer he sows and ho reape, but to do this tie must havo the aid of the mechanic to s'upply his plow, his sickle, and hu hoe. He must have tho miller to grind his grist and separate tho flour from the bran. Gentle men, I am the twelfth child of ? Kentucky hundred acre farmer, ani have carried the grint to tho mill and made my dinner on parched com on the road. (Laughter.) In my early days we used to oat the white part of the grist 011 Sundays, and brown on week days, and the black we ?ed to tho stork. (Applause.) If, therefore, the agricul turalists aro the back ttone of the nation, the mechanics -ire the ribs and sinews that help to support it (Cheers-) But, gentlemen, 1 suppose that a majority of you belong to the mercantile part of society; and they too, All an import ant spuce in the support of society. Alter the product: of tho laboris gathered, they take it up with piantstrength and walk elf with it; and. therefore, 1 conai.ler them ibe legs and arms of this great nation. (Chens uudloud ap plause ) But 1 may aa well cull the roll here, and up comes the doc or*, the preachers, and the lawyers. (Laughter) The preachers may take care of your souls, tlii doctors may help tbeir patients to the grave ns they do with us?(laughter)-and the lawyers, of which i ro lession 1 am one, will help the money ol their clients into their own pockets as fast as possible. (Great laughter) But, gentlemen, what ia the object of government, and how i* it to he supported? Look at these hands-they cant be imitated?see how they shut up and open without any talk, and what are they lur? They are to aid in the support and protection of the human race as has been evident since the creation Adam was ordered to labor with the sweat of his brow to earn his dally bread, ai.d thus labor with these hands forms the health, wealth, strength and happiness of this nation (Applause ) To sustain this, as it is sustained in all parts of the woild, it must be protected; Ktr?s and potentates Erotect their home industry and our political opponents eretell veu you should not. (Applause) l? that good doctrine? ( It will never do-for while others protect themselves, we, in return, must protect onraelves. (Applause.) Self preservation is the first law of nature with animals, with reptiles even, ami shall we refuse to do what the brute creation, through na ture'a works, so strongly point out. (Uicat ap Jilause) No, we must resort to self-protection un ess (roe trade is the motto of tho world Protection is the policy of Great Britain, and her advocates in ! court and parliament sustain that doctrine. (Applause.) And shall wo not protect ourselves? (Yes? yefc) Fel low citizens, if tuere be any agriculturalists among you, he mast not assume to himselfthe idea that the back bone is the whole animal. (Laughter) Oh, no ! be must re member that he stands in human society aa n integral part and portion only?that a city ii but a mole hill to a state, and that t state Is but a portion of this Union. If be should have formed a prejudice in favor of free trade, and is opposed to protection, became he doe* not appear to ro ceive rtn immediate benefit, let him teat the doctrine on a ?mall scale. Let him locate himself noar a thrifty whig farmer, who keepa his fences up and hif gates closed, and trv the reverse doctrine, and bow soon will h:s neighbor's est tie satisfy him that free trade and open ports tor lora gnra is not exactly sound doctrine. (Laughter and ap plause.) If this doctrine, therefore, ia unsound on a small scale, is it not on an extended one, my friends? (Applause) Van Buren, tkey would remember, made a great mistake when he wrote his celebrated letter talking about coon skins and hard cider, at a time when a very serious ca am ity had threatened the country. They would recollect the time after General Jackson went out of power; a petition went from New York begging of Van Buren to call Con gress together to relieve the suffering community. They would remember that after Jackson went out of power, twenty millions was lost?it was estimated tkat in the city of New York 90,000 laborers were walk ing thestreetsialmostfin a state of starvation, when Van Buren refined to call the people together ; and in ten days the pet banks were blown up " skv high"? (laughter)? then it wm that he issued hi* celebrated proclamation commencing "great and weighty matters havinir rendered it necessary to call Congress together." (Laughter) Twenty thousand famishing people, and then when the pet hanks fell "great and weighty matters" obliged him to con vene Congress. If there ws* a Democrat present and bad forgotten these^scts, he would refer him to the records for the fact -he knew H waa in May Van Buren refused, and it wai in Mac heconvened the Congress on the ex rdo*ion of the pet Banks ; that waa his miataka, and when 'he people saw that proclamation in Kentucky, they im mediately denounced Van Buren. Alter this hearties* act against the people, how ought they to feel in relation to Tan Buren f The hero of New Orleans had wisely said, "All who live on borrowed capital ought to break " rh* Tariff question in the praaant contest was one that required grave consideration, and embraced the three great elementa oi the aoeial system?the three great arm* -tlit manufacturing, and then there whs the agricultural. This lact reminded him of an anecdote in relation to "Little Delaware," aa a friend had facetiously called it- but thoagh small In stature, it had thevou'est heart. The owner of a large tract of forest, sent one ol his slaves during a tbnnder storm, to take care of bi* 'rees, who took refuge under a lofty pine which was struck down after the first clap of thnnrfer. by tho 'ieht nlng ; immediately the nigger ran rff and took shel ter under an old oak which reigned the rnalesty ?>f the forest. The lightning neat struck down the oak, unon which the old nigger bolted off and took refnge under a gum tree } but wnen the lightning came to strike the giim tree. It glstieed rff, end the nigger im mediately looked up and exclaimed," Well, by gum, you have got your mateb at last " (Lsugftter) Via Buren Lad tried hi* hand at the T m iff? he fa nit wielded trie me chanical arm?be next tried the manufacturing aim,and when he cane to the gun. tree, the agricultuial?he luund his match. (Immense laughter ) lid did not want to ta cit* the rich against the poor, l>ut he would tell tbwui that the country which paid beat it* laborer* and protected them, waa the brat governed country. (Cheera ) They would |*rmit him to saythat societ) ,u it waa constituted, formed a kind of arch, termed of three |?r?at stones, which require:} to lie cemented oarHully together tn order to uphold the social ayetam. Them noun were ti>e agricultural, the mechanical, en4 the manulucturing art*. and to thiiee who advocated principles adverse to the agricultural interest', be would merely say, what could they do without agricultural labor? lie did not see any corn fit Ids in NeW *ork~every where he lookud about htm ha aaw nothing but people They had in thit country the philosopher's stone, and the alchymi eadiavofed to discover that it waa by the division of labor that everything waa converted iuto gold. By thia alchemy they were endeavoring to gat protection lor the masses?and he would ask how could they get along in New York, where there existed both the manufacturer and the mechanic, withost agricultural labor ? W hen agricultural labor waa prostrated, every tting was gone, and grass would grow in Broadway?aiid il tne manufac turtr and mechanic were put down, they should oil be compelled to go to the country?and those wishing to aell would not he able to get the pay, and thote wishing to buy would not lie able to give it?they would, in fact, be like a community having no women ?(roar* of laughter? ?and however they might be able to get along iutown in that way, they could not do ao in the country. (Laugh ter.) This very tariff, it waa a cutious hot, had been ad vocated no lens than thirty ycara ago by Henry Clay, in the Kettuaky Legislature, which waa the cause of his memorable duel ot which 10 much had lie en sold, and which he had fought in good "home apun " (Lead and tremendous cheering ) Much aa had been said on that duel, he waa proud to be able to aay that the son of the man who iought him waa manied to Henry Clay'a daugh ter. (Vociferoua cheer*, and criea 01 ''Give us a touch upon Texa* ") The tariff had been abused, and It had been called the "black tariff " He, however, would spell it t-a-r-i l f, which meant protection for American labor. He waa a common-sense man, aad discuaaed thia q>ie*tion as a practical one, and to those who contended that it operated ao aa to catiae a conflict between toe interest* of the producer* and the consumers, he would refer thi-vi to look to the result of the practical working of the tariff of 184a He did not look upon the other queationa, namely "A National Currency," "The division of the Proceeda of the Public Landa." or "The Veto Power," of auch absorb ing interest as the adjustment of the tariff. Enthusias tic applause.) He looked upon them as matters sub ordinate. and of minor import in the present atruggle, aa compared with the (jueation of the tariff*. There was, however, another question, which was thrown as a kind of bomb shell?by John T) ler?the question of the an notation of Texaa He would ask what had Texas to do with American labor? And yet Texas was made the head and lront of the present contest In South Carolina, the ground had been taken was sucb aa to alarm every American patriot. (Loud cries of "nullification ") The gallant general here rend a list ol toasts lately given at a public dinner which was given to Mr. Rhett in Mouth Carolina, and contended that they were bound to look to the safety of the Union ; he would gravely ask them to look out, aa this was the American against the Kngliih ay stem. He felt an apprehension, that if they did not look out, au attempt would be made to tako New Jeraey from them?and thus Pennsylvania would follow?but they could not take the West?the Nerth or the South (Cheers ) After briefly reviewing the proceedings ol the Democratic National Contention held at Baltimore, the gentleman then dilated upon the many beauties ol the glorious Constitution of this country, that part in par ticular which gave an opportunity of the sou ot every working man to reach the highest office in 'he State, ha ving for their example the glorious conduct and history of Henry Clay, although they might have no earthly lather to guide them, the Almighty would direct their course as he had dene the great and good loan. (Loud and continued cheering) He did not see how the ques tion of annexation, or non-annexation of Texas, affected the great question at present at issue between the two parties, and thought 'hat if he went for the non annexation every one present might do the same, a* he had more in terest at stake in the question than most had. He then took a review of the conduct of Santa Anna toward* the inhabitants of Texas, particularly in hi* not allewiag them to worship God n any other way than that laid down by the church of Home; not but be respected the Roman Catholics, but because he thought every man should go to Heaven bis own way. He helped to clothe and arm a number of volunteers, Irom Kentucky, to assist in protecting the inhabitant* of Texas. At that very mo ment the government of Texas owed him (Gen. Coombs) upwards of $110,000, which the annexation of that State to the Union would make certain of his obtaining, but this was no consideration;lie had hi* principle* to maintain, and malntaiif them hewould at any and every sacrifice He might have, on hi* return home, to *ell the houao Ircm over the heads of his family, to pay hi* way ; hut uo matter?hi* children would have a* much a* he had from bis father?a world for themselves to make their way in ; and he would have a clear conscience, knowing he had done hi* duty. When called npon, lie wa* ever ready to do hi* duty, and gave several instances of it. The gen tleman then proceeded to highly laud the character of the reildeut* of Texas, a* brave men ; but as much as he re spected them, he reaptcted the ftripea and stara more ; and aaid? " Tbe banner of freedom, lor g may it wave Over the land of the tree and the home of tbe brave." It might be remembered that a few yeara ago an expedi Hon went forth from Kentucky against tbo power* oi Mexico on behalf of Texas ; io tbii were three individu al*, one the author of a volume that baf since given the particular* of thia expedition to thu world ; another indi vidual, and a youth Tl?e?e were taken pruoner* and the unfortunate boy waa tied to the tail el a hone and drag ged lone 1600 miles to Mexico, where he waa bound in chain* and forced to labor like a criminal on tbe public highway. After enduring thia hardship for come time he. won led out to he ibot, frum which be never rhrank 01 even, as a ?,.ec.Utnr informed him, did not close an eye : but thia waa not carried into r fleet, and he waa remanded back to prison and his chains. Some time after be wa* released, and returned to bia friends who had giv?n him upns loit. Thi'boy waa my son (Great sensation? loud cheera. The speaker was considerably affected )? The gentleman resumed?when h> returned homt he was asked by hi* father how he felt ucd r such circumstances, ta which he replied that' he only thought hia father was looking upon him. witli Kentucky at his back. And so it was, for all Kentucky Demecrats and Whigs were ready to go forward to save 11 possible one of her children, ond it wa* on his return from Texas that he met a body of Kentuckians going forth for Ihi* object He felt proud of hia native place, and hoped ever to do so. He hod suffered much in property and in his child for Texas, but ha felt n ote ef hi* birthright, and would not give it up for any Texas Tbe gentleman then proceeded to take a review r.f the States ol Tennessee, Georgia, and Virginia through which he had recently travelled a apace of #60 milea, and said they were enthusiastic for Henry Clay ; and met with only one hickory polo throughont his rout, and that looki.d more like a deserted gallows than any tiling else, whila every hill and dale was covered with ash plants from which floated banner* on which were inscribed the names of Clay and Krelinghuysen The gentleman then proceeded to exhort hia hearers to vigilance; he said they had a great work to do, and It was only by activity and vigilance they could accomplish it. To illustrate this, he intro duced one 01 two anecdotes ol a military r, aa to the line of proceedings to be adopted ; alter which one or two similie* from natural histor> for patience and perse verance, and after a sharp attack on Jnmes K Polk, whom he designated as a coward and an imbecile, concluded by saying that both men, women, and children had resolved upon doing justice this fall to Harry of the Wcit. The gentleman saLdown amid loud and continued cheering, which laated a considerable time. After which, Oeu Clinch, of Gsorgia, was loudly called for. After a vain attempt at an excuse, (ten. Clinch came forward and in a brief addresa of considerable humor returned thanks for the honor done to his native State, Georgia, and recommended the Whig* of New York to be as active as the Georgians, und the victory was sure Gen. Coouas then came forward and aaid he had some had now* to announce from Vermont. The aecounU re ceived that evening from this State were such as to assure them that the K<atern and Western parts had given a ma joritv of 3,000 votes to Henry Clay. (Great cheering.)? Their opponents might laugh at the coona, but it was well known they were the devils for Polk berries in the fall (Great laughter and cheering ) Mr. Hosier. Gasm.iT then came forward and congrntu lated tho?e present on the result of the election In Ver mont?went over briefly some of the prevlona speaker's observations, and concluded by exhorting the whiga ol New York to follow the example of those ol Vermont. Oneortwo others attempted to speak or sing, but evl dently what remained of the meeting hed sufficient for the preient, and they gradually dispersed.

We give the indictment in full-the. taiious counts and averments. It went as follows : That on tb* 6th day of July, 1R44, defendant was posseted of a cer tain ferocious and unruly dog, called " Forrester," and which said dog was ot a savage- and un ruly disposition, and was uneasy in his nature, ?o <u that it was necesstry for the secarity ol /.eritna ?ml properly, such as the dot; may etl and d tfray, to tavu the skid dog tied end confined i ail of which wn. known to the defendant.

That on the 30th ul July said ' Forrester" broke the cock or handle ol ? gin bant 1 that was laying in the cellar, and destroyed 26 gallons of gin. valued ut $60. Snch were the express wok's ol the declaration. Hakhu i Wilson, Ihe complainant, appiari 1 in person nn<l testified to the dmrage and the unrvl) habitsol 'For rrster," who i* remanded in custody, lor the (fence In her cross examination, aha admitted, however, that the had a husband from whom she was separated and had ta ken measures to procure* divorce. Counsel for the de fence, contended that this point was fatal to the action, as Harriet was bound to bring the action iu her husband'a name. The extent of the damage being fully proved, the conn sel lor defence said be would go into character; hut he considered the law point he had raited was fatal to the action. As to "Forieater,'* they would be shle to show that none were more amenable to the laws us be could get several nritnussis to testify as to character. The Court ruled in favor ol the defendant; and thus baa Forrester es caped, it is to be hoped, to become an immediate "member ol the Temperance society," a* few ol the most professed votatiis of the "Jolly lied," could draw so much ol the "pure Feleruian"at a sitting.
