It will be found to he one of the incut curious and saroastic impromptu speeches that wu ever deliver <1 in America. GREAT SPEECH OF JOHN VAN BUREN, The Favorite Grandson of New York. Ma. VAN BUREN saidKellow democrat* and fellow traitor*, [Mr. Van B. and the entire radical section of the democratic party, are styled "traitors" by the conservatives,] the democracy of this State have assembled in mass convention, to " avow their sentiments, and oonsult as to taeir future action;" and it is a novelty in the history of political aotlon that this oonduct, on their part, should be denounced as treason. The extraordinary proceedings of the Syracuse Convention) have led to this meeting; ?nd,oertainly, no oooaslon ?ou'd offer whloh more imperiously demanded it. It is claimed that the voice of the democracy of the Btata, which should have been heard at Byraeuae, expressing Ita preferences as to candidates and the principles of its faith,2ha* been 'stifled; and that individuals have been put in nomination, who, the election'for delegates showed, were not the choioe of a majority of the democratic eleotors, and that the MDtimiintfl of thu <i*m<u?rAAv In rnvtrrl tn nna e%t Mm moat Important questions ?yer presented to a free people, have been fraudulently suppressed. Under such circumstances, he is a who would assume that it if treason to the party to oall the electors together in their primary capaoity to avow their sentiments, and oonsult as to their aotion. In his judgment, a failure to do both would be treason itself. Mr. Van Buren said that he wonld not detain the convention by a particular reference to the transactions of the Syracuse Convention lie had taken some pains to lay be fore the public a minute narration of the acts of that body, and he had every reason to believe these aots were fully understood and appreciated Without going into any controverted question of fact, it was sufficient at present to say that this oonvention had unanimously oometo the conclusions which were stated in the address which they had just adopted, and in whloh he fully concurred. They were thus set forth:?The principle whloh lies at the basis, not only of the democratic faith bnt of representative republican government, is the faithful reflttfion by the representative of the will of the constituent. Unlets this principle is practically applied to our government, the system must prove a failure It is equally indispensable In the conventional action of parties: for on it are founded the associated efforts which give shape and dlreotion to the government This vital prlnolple was shamefully violated in the late Syracuse convention, and candidates who were known to be the choice of a majority of the democratic party, were deprived of a nomination by this base betrayal of ihe popular will on the part of those who were delegated to express It. Nor was thin the only abuse perpetrated. Persons without the shadow of a claim to seats in the convention, were permitted to retain scuta in it for day*, to neutralise the vote* of the regular delegates, and to esolude them eventually from the seats to whloh they were entitled. Claimants against whom undented evidence of bribery and corruption was produced, were admitted to seats. Delegates whose elooMon bad been effected by the seizure of the ballot boxe and the polling of illegal votes, were welcom e into tb convention, while others, fairly and hoi elected were expelled. A just and fair agreeun r organisation of the convention was wonto . <1 Instead of one hundred and twenty-el|.' embers, which was the whole number the countleH entitled to send, one hundred and thirty-six per* ok part in the preliminary proceeding* whloh coot the ao tlonot the body. Committee* of the mos judioed oast were appointed to pass upon the rights 01 mteet lng delegates Unjust and arbitrary decisions < <tniued their partial report*, excluding the rightful delegates; and at last the convention, thui unnatural la propor tions and dlsgraeefai in conduct, shrunk to a little more than a third of it* original site, and expired. To add that a convention thnn constituted and thus oonductlog has imposed no obligation on you by its action, is the simple announcement of the eonooded truth that the fraudulent oonduct of no man cau bind another The democratic nartv of the State, then, were left with. tn one weak of an important Htate election, without any regularly nominated candidate* for their suffrage*; and In pursuance of the objects for whloh they bad asaein bled, he should deolare bis views in regard to one of the questions now engaging the public attention, and also delineate the line of eonduot he intended to pursue The proposed extension of slavery Ito lands in wbloh it did net now exist, waa a prominent topio of public dis cusaioo. The address which they had adopted set forth fully the objections to such extension: and these ob jectiona had been ably and eloquently reinforced by the distinguiahed speakers who had preceded him (Mr Wilpaot, of Pennsylvania, and Mr Cambreleng, of Suffolk ) He should add but little to what had been already so foroibly stated. (** Go on," ,lgoon.") If, said Mr V B , anything oould add to the inherent abjections to the proposition Itself,it may be gather* d from a hasty view of the condition of the publlo mind at the present time What, said he, is the great feature of the ago In which we live ? It ia freedom and progress. The shackles in which commeroe has been bound are falling before the enlightened reason of the day. England, where the ava lam or restrictions ui nmw w?a luriiwu uj mronger interest* ud sustained by a morn nettled policy han in any other country, has recently undergone a thorough reform.?(Cheers.) The ancient political parties of that country, which have in former days divided its people, have been merged in the discussion and disposition of this suhjeot. Those distinguished leaders of opposing parties ?i'eel and Russell?have been brought by it to harmony and concert. Not Kn gland alone, but France, Austria, Holland, Belgium, and Trussia, have participated in this groat effort for commercial freedom No form of government has been exempted from the liberal opinions of the day. The cries of tarnishing millions have thundered at the walls of the Vatioan; and the Tope, so soon as he was released from the restraints of a neighboring power over iiim, has stood forth as the friend of free trade. (Tumultuous cheering). In our couutry. the tariff of 184-i has fallen before the exposure of its injustice, and been made to yield to the more liberal provisions of the existing law The great leader of the democratic party in our own State, whose early habits and position had probably Inclined him to the doctrine of protection. an'i who had been compelled by th* foroe of overruling circumstances, wholly Independent of the acts themselves, to sustain, by his vote, the tariff acts of 1828 and lS^'i, retiring from publlo life to the peaceful pursuits ot agriculture, and to the reflection and study that attend them, gave to his fellow citizens the result of that study and reflection <n tha admirable address which was read at the recent Agricultural State Kalrat Saratoga Springs?an address which was at the same time the most clear and oompact production of Mr.Wrght'spen? his most precious logaoy to posterity, and an enduring monument to his memory. Freedom of trade, then, was eminently a oharacteristio of the age, and was fast beeomiug the settled policy of the world. He would not stop la advert to the advances whioh bad been made In independence of opinion and of aotl*n; and In reference to the exUtence of human bond age, hi) would simply remind them that the Have irad * hail been declared piracy by the Christian world, sod that Oreat Britain, at an expense of jCjo 000,000. hail emancipHted the slaves in its Went India colonies Thin mi hut a glance at the position of thinus And what <111 it reveal' Freedom of trade, ol thought, of actioo, ami of mind, wan stamped in character* ot living light upon the face of the clvilU'd globe (Hear, hear, and cheer*) Wag thin a*time for the State of New York, which hail long since abolished human slavery in it* own borderr.'o invade n. froe country through the action of the general government, for which it was in part responsible; to expend its blood and treasure, in subjugating that country, and to plant upon its soli the curse of slavery?

(Cheering) It seemed to him that a moment's reflection could satisfy our 8outh?rn brethren that the elector* of New York were unalterably oppoaed to a soheue to revolting to their education habile and feeling*, and ao dirrctly (ippoHlto to the prrvloui action of the statu itself and to the (pirit of the ago He thought tbe addrrsa adopted by the conv<:n> tion stated their views with great mildners and forbearance, when it aald: " We dose thla branch of tbe fubject by naylngto you, that the principle contained in the foregoing reaolutiona, which the Nyracuae convention refused to adopt, ia one which It la tbe duty of the New York democracy to avow and maintain, and which wa tell-ve nearly the whole olvllijed w?rld will concede aud approve; an4 we would ieape> UWly apprlae cur Southern brethren, that although our climate or diapo altion may not excite in us a warmth aud atrength of assertion ?r|ual to their own, our reaolutlon la none the leaa fixed and Immoveable.'' Out. aald Mr V. It , it with no ordinary feeling* of surprise that we have observed repeated efforta in the columns of the Wanhington Union, to prevent the assembling of Ihia convention, and to control it* action. Mr. Thomas ltlteble, the editor of the government oraan, protests against the principle we avow, and declares It to be an Interpolation into the democratic creed Mr. Rltobie was a gentleman whom he had tbe pleasure to know personally, and for wboee accomplished mannors, social disposition, personal IhteprUv. and experience and skill as a politl- 1 ral editor, he had great respect; but In hi* Judgment, Mr. Ritohie wholly mlsappr*n?n4ad the wlatlon In "kith ha itood to tb? d??oor?ey of l*tw York, when ht W YO YORK, THURSDAY MOI undertook to teach them when anil where they should asaemble, what they should nay and what they should do.

B would not aver that all the principles contained in the proclamation, as it wa? at first understood, wer strictly orthodox ; but he should be unwilling to refuse to serve on a sheriff's posse,! because the process contained a sentiment in whloh he did not aoncur; and he should have been equally reluotant to withhold his support from a republican President and true hearted patriot, at an imminent orisis in the history of the country, hreause a critical examination of an indlspenslble public act, disclosed a possible deviation from abstract demooratln faith. The proclamation of Andrew Jackson declared aa follows:?"The laws of the United States must be executed; I have no discretionary power on the subjeot.? My duty is erapuatlcaily pronounced in the ennstltu tlon.

(Loud cheers and oriea of" Hear ") These pretests, therefore, were not new to the democracy of New Vork. nor had their nature and consequences been unobserved; they would not be heed ed now; and he took the liberty of adding, as an bumble member of the l?gal profession that they were a species of foreign protests, which, by the laws of Mew York, had no validity within her limits (Lauthter and applause ) In his humble juilgtannL. Mr Ritchie. when interfering with their action, and reprimanding their conduet, had not duly reflected upon the vital importance, In all Its bearingn.of the question of extending slavery It reach- 1 ed above and beyond the party divisions of the day: be should lift his eyes from the tow path of party, and look 1 out upon the ocean of freedom; he should lay aside liia democratic jewsharp, 'and 'listen to the notes of the bugle of liberty, (lmmod-rate laughter.) He ihould drop his party pop gun, and hearken to the cheers of million* of energetio and independent mm, oonquering a country, and planting upon it nation of freemen. Acting thus, he would exhibit an elevation of purpose, and dignity of intellect qualifying him to lecture the dnmoorati of New York. (Cheers reverberated throughout the building, and Mr Van Buran paused Cries rose from all directions, begging him not to desist. He theu proceeded as if he had not been Interrupted ) Mr V B then alluded to other grounds of opposition. It had been suggested by a Southern statesman that it waa unconstitutional to prohibit slavery in newly acquired territory Thia suggestion, and the grounds on which It rested, necessarily denied the constitutionality of the. ordinance of 1789, and the so oalled Missouri compromise. It waa unworthy of a serious refutation Mr V B commented further on this position, and added : we haTe followed these Southern lights to the verge of the constitution If we pursue these Will o'the Wisps?(laughter) ?further, we are in danger of being inned, and irreeover ably lost For himself, be should rather be guided by the light of civilisation, by the llgbt of humanity, the light of freedom; in a word, if he might b? pardoned the figure, by the Northern lights (Loud laughter ) But. said Mr. Van Buren, we are charged with aotlng with the whig*. He had not observed that th? Southern democrats had alarmed Mr. Ritchie. by acting with th? whi ?n on thia question; the democrat* of Alabama. Oeorgii, und South Carolina, had not been reproved for this course, according to his recollection Mr Ritchlecommeuded this fraternisation In Virginia. Why was (Ml unity of geutim tnt on the part of democrats of New York, not only with the whigs. but with the civilised world, so vexations to Mr Rltohle! He submitted with great respeot. that Mr Rltohle should, at least, extend to the New York democracy the same credit for sincerity and Integrity, when they resisted the extension to free soil of the trafflo in human flesh, as he claimed for himself when he faltered and fell from the side of Jackson, in his struggle to preserve the Union and to protect the people from the bank, or when he resisted and opposed his successor in his efforts to remove the people's treasury from stock jobbers and money changers, and to deolare and establish it Mr. llltoble'a past life should admonish him to be indulgent towards those who act with the whigs (Hear, hear ) But Mr. Ritehle wasnot the only editor who recoiled from the Idea of acting with the whigs. Mr Kdwla Crosswell, of the Albany . Irgus, had taken fright at the same spectre. How did Mr. Croswell stand on this pnlntr Did Mr. Croswell aot with the whig* against Silas Wright.' (Yet, yes) Did he act with the anti-renters, and seoure the nomination by them of lohn Young? (He did, he did) Did he send Samuel Strong, a whig, as a delegate to nominate offlcers for Uor Wright to appoint? L)id he hire Strong this fall to carry the Ginth ward caucus?

That several tiruos during the past week, he received messages from the said Croswell, through James R Rose and others, requesting an interview with this deponent That on Wednesday last, he waa requested by said Rose to meet Mr. Croswell at the ofHoe of Rufus W.

Croswell then commenced a oonversa tion with thin disponent In rotation to the meeting to be held at the Ninth Ward the next evening. Unsaid that ' thay (meaning the Argut section of the democratic party,) would have the State Convention, and that this would be the end of the btrnDurners that he " wanted to carry the Ninth Ward -he wonld rather oarrytbat than any other ward In the olty ; and that hit wliihed thin deponent to assist him In doing go " " The ward inu?t be carried, no matter at what oast." lie then iaid that " he had a roll of one dollar bill* In hie pocket " which he handed this deponent, and which thlsdeponent found afterward* to contain twenty dollar* He then said that " thin deponent muet see Perry the next morning, and there would be more funds provided." He further iaid " that Mr Sherman (Watte Sherman, Khij ,) intended to Uothiolze hie home In Washington street, and that he had already spoken to him on-the subject, and that thin deponent should have ihe contract for doing the same. That It would take two yean to do the work, and that this deponent should do the same by day labor " Mr. Croswell then asked one of the persons present, " how muoh this deponent should pay the men for attending the meeting " lie replied that he supposed about fifty oents a piece Mr Croswell then said that he (this deponent) "could get them from any part of tha city; it made no difference only they must bo there in time and have the room blocked up. He told this deponent "to get the key and keep it looked, to prevent others from getting in." Mr. Croswell and the defendent then conversed about the mann?r of eonduotlng the business of said meeting; agreed that Mr. Hiram Perry should be chairman, ke.. be. This deponent then said to Mr. Croswell, " suppose John Van Huren gets speaking again?" Croswell replied," I will takaoare of that?we will have no speaking to-morrow night ?I told you (this deponent) to pull him down at the other meeting." This deponent and Mr. Croswell conversed further in relation to hiring musio, Stc , it.".. And farther thin deponent Mlth not HAMUKL STRONG. Sworn before me the 'iHth d*y of September. 1?47. J.

If he should, Mr. Van Huron would products a witness whom Mr Croswell little expected, and who would satisfy Mr. C. that for the se cond. and wont, time, " we had caught our foot in the Krating " (Voclferom laughter ) If It was regular to act with the whig* by hiring the leaders at ('20 a head, aud the rank and Me at Ml cent*, gratultory association* could not be irregular.

(Laughter.) But to achieve this consummation, he must first join the Mexicans, and then betray them ? [Laughter aud cheers ] Mr. Van Uuren bad beeu charged with giving Mr. Croswell t to much importance. Fellow citizens, said he, you cannot add to the consequence of a man who oauld drive from publlo lire into retirement, it not to the grave, a pure,disinterested and eminent statesm an, like Silas Wright. Nothing was gained by underrating an enemy; and low as he,might estimate Mr. Croswell's veracity, integrity or democracy, he had the htghrst opinion of his energy, cunning aud ability, lie was the brains of the conservative concern, and thousands of honest democrats were dally deoelved and misled by him. The Jlrgui was a most insidious and fatal ene uiy to the cherished men and precious prlnoiples of the deiaooratio party, aud a concerted and systematic effort should bn mad* to stop the circulation of that paper auioogHt democrats, and drive its wily and unscrupulous -Jitor out ol' the Hi ate, or into the federal rank*, where be would be harmlexx This should be the constant and sealous Ubor of every true dtinoorat.

But if he were the most ambitious public man living, he should Invite a oontinuance of the .Imut on himself If exhausted ingenuity, or maiiguity, or ftUigued exertion should cause them to lull, he should offer the never falling Inducement of a pecuniary reward, far greater tban could be derived i Irom printing legal advertisements for nothing, ] to proTunt their suspension. lit* should desire the calumny to punua him till.death, (if the Jlrgu< anil .Mr Croswell lasted *o long) and then, perhaps, ibe columns of thii .'It tut would be olad in deep sable, and a notloe of him, written by the senior editor, would appear so euloglstio tbat it was almost a temptation to die (or it. U-*ughter ) Such a display would not exceed in skill a memorable instance that might be olted. Mr. Van Buren laid he had been charged wlto acting under a fueling growing out of the action of the Baltimore convent'on This was an entire error. That convention presented principles which he could support, and although thousands sustained Mr. folk with more ability, and wielded In his tavor vastly more Influence, he ap pealed to all who wern familiar with the last Presidential contest to say, whether any one manifested more teal, activity and industry, in behalf of tbe republican party, at that time, than himself.

Where are they to go! What Is to become of them ? are questions whleh meet one on every aide. That the nui, nay, that any considerable portion of the democratie party, will adhere to tholr fallen fortunes, Is Idle. Why ahould they ' What principles did they avow at Syracuse ?

Let the Herkimer convention anawer. Free trade, free toll, free Ben, and free apeeoh, are the watchwords, and will benoeforth be the rallying ahouta of this formidable party; mm! if It ehall evince the requisite tact and discretion, It bids lair, even at the nest election, to annihilate all the old parties and their leaders.
