A i. TH ITMT NO. 5147. ACUn of V?liem?la ?'??1 tlir !V?w Vork Herald. [Translated from F.l R< i>ubl:cano. Caracai, 10th May.] In No. 6,(KM of the IVcic York llnclil, under dut 28th Feb. last, we find an article, evidently sent from this city, both ubsurd ami infamous for Venezuela; and it is singular that suehan <-min -nt |>iper as the Herald will allow a place in its columns for ?uch false and infamous articles against ih ; liberal party in Venezuela, a party which has striven, and is still striving, to establish in this part of the American contimnt those same political principles which are working so felicitously among our Northern brethren. W'e regret that among the. free and enlightened inhabitants of ih hanks of the Hudson, the bitter voice of c iluinny Ins been rained, to depreciate the great andjputriotic acts of the memorable 24th January. Oil that day the neopie ci uaracas made uic greatest stride they nave ever yet made in tlieir career ot independenc-r and liberty . An ambitious general, at tlie head of an oligarchial patty, had reigned (domi*ib<i) tor many years over the Yene/.ueli uis, and It td arrived at such a pitch u6to impo.-e the must debasing slavery on them, and he smoothed ofl' this tyranny by sarcastically invoking the nam sot' "liberty' and " order" to annul the |>opular right ot suffrage, and govern in spite of public opinion. The Ycnezuelians have employed constitutional means to remove from his post of power this ambitious general, who, sustained as he was by the majority of our military men, a great portion of the cl-rgy, and all those Venezueliuns inimical to liberty and democratic principles, was making rapid strides towards the legal establishment of oligarchial principles, which from the first lie desired to fix in the land; and for this purpose he employed the public power to annul the popular votes and elevate ins paitizans to the electoral colleges and Congress. By such management he prevented any ot the candidates of the popular party from being elected to the presidency, and elevated to that office General Jose Tadeo Monagas, who never had participated in the miserable intrigues of the Oligarchial*, and because this General did not servilely bend to the will of Paez, his party declared war against him a short time after lie entered on tlie duties of his office, and this obliged him to throw himself on the party which had previously combated his election. This conduct was worthy of the applauses of the Venezuelans, and the groat liberal party resolved on sustaining this administration, which had been raised to power by tlie efforts of Paez, whofawas much irritated, inasmuch as he presumed himself to be master of Venezuela, and both he and all his party, in their turns, agreed jo support ine neiarious ptuns wttn wlncli they had contrived to wrest the executive power from the hands of Monages, and the result of their consultations was that they agreed to avail themselves of the power of Congress, which they would rule. When this diabolical plan was discovered, wo did not hesitate for a moment iu advising the course to be pursued in the case; we showed that the people ought to be called on to listen to the dispute about to be commenced by the two high constitutional powers. The people promptly answered the call, and passed definite sentence on the case. The Repuolicano was the first who favored this appeal, and its editor appeared at the bar to sustain those sacred rights, the defence of which he had assumed as a duty, lie did not go merely to defend (fen. Monagas, but that s icred liberty which would certainly be destroyed, along with the authority ol the President. Liberty could not I be saved, unless the executive power'was saved { along with k. It was not General Monagas, then, j who induced the occurrences of that memorable I day?as the writer in the Herald seems to think? I nor were those occurrences for the purpose of defending him from impeachments pending before Congress. No; these occurrences saved our liberty, which was threatened by a congressional fraction, who had o|>enly conspired to legalize despotism in Venezuela. We ourselves have taken a prominent part in these nets, and we have j not, nor are we now, particularly attached to the l>erson of General Monagas; but he personified those principles, and, to defend them, it was necessary to uphold hi* authority. The great liberal party which has ilowu to arms to defend the administration, has acted with the same sentiments, and for the SRnie reasons that anini ited us in our course towards the general. It is not through feelings of personal affection that we have sustained, and coniinue to sustain, his authority?but because his administration accords with our political ideas; and whilst he pursues this course, the liberal party will give liiin their assistance, uiul EL Repvbhcano will sustain his administration. But should he stray from these principles, as liberals we will combat with him; as we are strong enough to maintain our footing over oligarchy, and overwhelm that executive officer who shall undertake to interpoee obstacles in the way of our gloriou march towards the establishment of a true r pub lie. We make there explanations in order tli.it the eminent editor of the JVrio York Ilernl-i may understand thit the HepuOlicano does not belong to the personal party ot the executive authority, and that it will only defend him so longns he proceeds in accordance with the principles which its editor advocates. In this highly important newspaper (the Herald) some very calumnious articles against tin liberty party have appeared, and they have fallen so far into error as to call it the negro party. In Venezuela there are not?neither can there beany parties of castes, for the whites, Indians and negroes are so mixed up that the line of detnurkation is completely obliterated. It was part of the policy of the Spaniards to keep up in the mind ol the other two rnccs a great terror of the white race, so that this fear would deter these two races, whom they destined for domestic slavery, trom making any attempts at independence; and the oligarchial*, who are as great oppressors and us umust as the Spaniards, availed llirim-elvcs of this colored pretext some time ngo to force fh? whites, and those who pass for such, to support the tyranny ol one man for fear of the tyranny of a caste. Some North Americans who have believed in this story of the arraying of castes in Venezuela, have united themselves with the oligarchic!* to combat the tendency which they suppose the liberal party have towards persona I slavery,and this is the reason that this false st6ry of a negro party finds a ready echo in the classic land of political liberty. The most singular thing is that almost all the colored men who aspire to a certain social rank are ol the ohgarchist party, that party wlnrli ia rrnrefcenfed to he ill- while one. 11. nango died defending this party,.of which Para is the leader, and they are both equally white. Esmnal, Siso, llerrera, licrnaia, Pereira, Are., belong to thia white party, und Guzman, Valero, Ibarra, Urrutia, Ktv.is, Cnrabano, iVc., belong to the so-called black party. It is very singular that the children of black* should side with tin whites, and that the latter should fraternize with the blacks, or fonn a potty against their own caste. In the same number of the Herald wc read the following:? " A man of fatal influence in the mHfortuuos of our country, appeared at the eud <>l the.se peruce above describe!. It was Col. Wi1s.>n v>bo wont arm In arm with one of the ss'sspins. tlcn Diego O'llnra Alltheronsplrstora were continually going in and coming out ul the bouse of the British embos y. vir . the Ucnerals Monaga?, O'llara. and Santiago Marino; Colonels I,ol>o and Austria, and to these was joined one of the moat wicked of them all. nana ty.

(treat notoriety marked out this conduct of n man ungrateful for the hospitalities be has reeeivtd, and one of those who has the chief bsnd in the misfortunes of our country." It would be well if this calumniating paragraphist would explain, or demonstrate what fatal inijuence it is that lias been brought to bear on the ini>inrtunAb r\f tka /innnti-ir 'II,,. rri-,.,t ri t i at ort 11111 which thin country hap experienced.

Thia is the only mtafoitunc which th country h.i. jnet with, and the same paragraphia' conies?" that Colonel Wilson wan not lavorable to the rule of thin party; besides, the British Minister has not exercised any influence on our nii-lortim p. The paragraphia! says that thia minister appear d at the cloae of the scenes of the 21th January. And how did he appearl lie appeared up a brave and philanthropic man, who exposes Ins Iif".

In th- midst of the popular effervescence, Colonel Wil on rn-lied out, and, taking a white flag, entered into the room wli-n the Ilouse waa in session, with the vie w ol sayui" those who could not cot out. Tltc British embassy served as an inviolable place of refn - for niany of thoae who were obieets of popular odium. The paragraphtst states that the conferences which were held between the British Mmi-n t and the President of the republic ntid his Iriends, " could not have been conferences on harmhv. subjecta." And how does litis calnmni. liugscnb know this! How could lie divine th it roufcrcnt <s held between,a foreign minister und several pul?lic functionaries, turned, or n< t, on miIu'Mp favor able to thu misfortunes of the countrv of those funotionsriea 1 It could only he an oti-urehi l who could conceive mh<I write such nun - n?e.

The most prominent act of Dr. tSanavria in these times, has heeri his support of the principle tl at the niunicipsl councils have the legal power ol annulling the v ites t f those casting them, the which react in favor if those who now detract from them. We should he glad if the correspondent of the thrall would point out the acts winch l)r Sanavria has been guilty of, that, in his opinion, merit the epithets he applies to lnrn. We will conclude this article by begging the enlightened editor of the Herald to rectify his judgment of the liberal party of Venezuela. Coli'mhus, Ohio, June 25>, 1S18. Propotxtion to Pott-up the Whig Party Action in Ohio?lite Kritl in ft Difficult ten Among the T)ci mocracy. 1 liave been engaged for several days in posting whig sentiments as expressed through the several whig newspapers of the State, and as promulgated by rnuny whig leaders in private conversation and in public speeches, and in a day or two hence, I will be enabled to forward a tolerably correct balance sheet of the present slate of the whig party in Ohio. It is no trilling job, this posting of whig sentiments. I have, however, undertaken the tcsk, and so far as labor, energy, and a determination not to shrink from facts, howtlie readers of the Herald shall have a faithful report. In the meantime, 1 wish to say a word or two of the democracy, th-ir troubles and position. The present is, without doubt, a most extraordinary canvass. Never have political uflairs assumed so peculiar a turn in the developements of the attempt to organize parties on the old plan. r or one 10 say nun lie belongs to (He winy party, conveys no longer any meaning; further explanation is required, before we can know whether he favors this, that, or another principle, or measure, or candidate. Equally so with the democratic ! party. The truth is, in regard to the latter parly, it is now merely a "democratic" party, which is u ditrerent thing from being a party of "democrats." To say, 1 am democratic, is one thing; hut to be able to say, 1 am a democrat, is another and a much stronger position. To hurrah for Cass and Eutler, even, does not carry with it a necessury knowledge o! the principles and measures one is in favor of or opposed to. Party organization and principles are separated ? have become distinct propositions for consideration. Consequently, we tnuy find in one crowd a vehement ad vocate of the | anti-slavery proviso to the newly acquired territory 1 give his consent to support Gen. Cuss; in another crowd, we see one who from first to last denounced the war with Mexico as unholy, wicked, and unjust, give his consent to support General Taylor. Again, we see a man who ulaiiww to be u democrat ofniany years standing, say, that lie cannot vote for Cass, because lie differs with him on this, that, or U Other point. Another one says he is a whig, and will not vote unless he can vote for a whig, a full whig, a known whig, and who will sustain the whig party, and, therefore, cannot, and will not vote lor wnerai xayior. Hence you see, the democracy ol Ohio are far from being harmonious. The connection of Gen. Sutler's name with that of Cass, had the effect on ihe receipt of the news of the nominations, and for s< ni" time alter, to suppress all feelings of dissatisfaction, or disinclination to yield u hearty support. Time has developed this to have been the fact; for, while we begin to hear numerous expressions of objections to General Cass among democrats, all?all, arc satisfied with Butler. When i the telegraph brought the news to this city, that ! Mr. Van Buren had writtpn a letter of approbation and acquiescence to the l'tica Convention, and that i?r< bably he would be nominuted by them, for President, it was immediately rumored, and the | rumor gnve evident satisfaction to many demo| ?relH. both among the citizens and of the many ' visiters then fere, that the same corn- ntiou would ! hi probate the nomination of General Butler for \'ice President. It had been stated that the barnburn rs' delegates, while at Baltimore, expressed themselves satisfied with lus nomination. Had the i L'tica Convention done this, immediately a strong I response would have been sent from Uhto, and a " \'an Buren and Butler" electoral ticket brought i out. John Brough, of the Cincinnati Enquirer, had occasit n to reply to an article of censure which appeared in the New ^ ork E rening 1'oM, when he | toi !t occasion to repel the imputation that lie was inimical to tlm barnburner movement, although in i I l. ... i,. (i... l>?ll...?.r.. nnn,i?..?o i......o.i in smell a leeling, he says: "WV sympathise truly and sincerely with them, and regret thnt they are compelled to t.ike a position which, to us in Ohio, appears wrong." The truth is, there is a good deal of sympathy among the Ohio democratj, towards tin' position of the New York barnburners. And, il a prudent nnd proper step is taken by them, and u Bulisfactory selection of candidates is made, there wtU immediately spring up in Ohio a party in their support. 1 learn that Salmon Shaw, the representative of that strong-hold of democracy? Fairfield county?is so open and decided an advocate of the proviso principles, as to propose an indepuident organization i:: support of a "proviso" candidate for President. My opinion is. that elements are now at work v. hii h will inevitably lend to such a movement. Whether such n movement, agreeing tn sentiment nnd object with the New York barnburners, would he likely to receive countenance nnd support fiont the whips who are opposed to Taylor, will depend upon the course pursued by the same class of whigs in the Fast.

It will be recollected thai the whig State convention, in January last, referred the subject of prcsi. dential candidates to a committee of twenty-one ; thai, after a protracted, animated, and somewhat embittered discussion, the committee reported a general resolution of " submission to the decision of the national convention," without naming a preference. In this discussion, the claims and merits of (leaeral Taylor received hut a meagre support. Corwin, Clay and McLean, ahsoib d the attention of the delegates. Clay received the strongest support. The no-preference position wait adopted, through the management of the Corwin men, who considered it a great victory merely to prevent an expression favoring Mr. CI iy. The Clny tnen. in submitting to this com ". committed a great error, and a still greater, hy subsequently agreeing to unendorsing resolution of Mr. Corwtn'a course in the Senate. This resolution was as follows:? ' 0)1' has reason to h< proud of Iter Senator in Congrest,'J hemns Corwtn. Iter people hove vratelieil his pregre s w ith zealous affection. Tlicy rrrogaisein him the pifti J orator and the rttiahle statesman, 'l'o him tin y have entrusted their Interests and lls ir honor, mu thoy unphaticnlly accord to him. in nil his relu tii,ns. but more especially in the fearle,s stand which h" lis : taken, in tie' Senate of the United States, on the .Yexican war. their heartfelt approval."

These pu n controlled lite convention. They opposed Mr. ( lay, to the hope that hi overthrow would he oe grounds which could not fail to present Mr. ( orwin rs the most prominent candidate. They expected mother letter from Mr. Clay on the territory <|m i tu n, on whir h tliey could hinge a reason tor hi: defer.I, and that tin same reason would I oint to Mr. ('orwin, ?s the man foi the times.

'l'eylor, previous to the nomination: " The nualifl<atii>n? fi r elaleeuianslitp are not to be iirijiiiied in n day. a month, or a yoar They can only be attained through long yearn of patient application.

Notwithstanding this opinion and many otohr liftrd ravings in regard to the war and the soldiers engaged in it, the Slate Journal has Fallen into the support of the hero of the Mexican war. And, why1? Not for the love of the man, or his liberal principles, or his independent position, but solely because there is no mistaking tlm satisfaction among (he people, and the joy wtth which they rally to the support of old Rough and Ready! The motive which inlluences these party managers to surrender to Gen. Taylor, though he distinctiy told them that under no contingency would he surrender to them, is fully developed by the ! language of the State Central Committee in their ' address to the whigs of (Jhio. They say : ] "It would be useless and disingenuous iu us to din- . guise the tart, that tin* candidate for I'rerideut was not the first choice of a large portion < t llie wings of our State. If, however, we can accomplish the objects 1 of our political organization, by electing hitu, it is due J to ourselves and to our country, to give hint our most 1 hearty support." ] Ilere.ihen.iH a plain admission, that their hearty , support is given to _Gen. Taylor, to say the least, i witn the modification of an if. As mi'ch us to say: not for the sake of electing him President, will we i give him our support; but if we can accomplish ' the objects of our |mlitical organization. Arc. J The objects of our (whig) political organization. do not seem to embrace, in the estimation ' of tne Central Committee, and their advisers, the election of a whig president, but may be ac- , rxtmnlicliii/l Kw mvinrr ? Ivuoef if outmost ? ?" ? in whose inline the people hope to effect un entire i revolution in the objects to winch party organizations huve been made subservient by iiolitical hucksters. Now, an it is well known, that scarcely without nil exception, the men who participate in the dis- i cussion ol' the merits of presidential candidates, previous to the nomination, are themselves candidates either for election or appointment, or reelection, or re-appointment to oflice, under the federal or State government; we could easily surmise the objects they hoped to accomplish in the name of "Old Zuck," even if they had left us to j that in forming a conclusion. Dut the Whig ] Central Committee, after claiming that the wliigs i of Ohio are in favor of a protective tariff, in favor ' of separating thesword Irom the purse, iu tavor of l the improvements of our great highways, livers, lakes and harbors, and opposed to the sub-treasury, opposed to wars of aggression, opposed to the ac- ' quisition of territory, opposed to the veto power, 1 opposed to executive encroachments, and rcli- ' gtously, morally, politically, and uncompro- 1 ntisingly opposed to the extension of slavery over 1 * one foot more of American soil.

Mr. Jh-nny says: "We rniunt suppress our deep regret, indignation nnd in h: licit mortification, at the nomination of tfen. Taylor by the whig national conrenliuu. We hliould be utterly destitue of honor, of candor, and a m.inly independence, if we did not utter our couvictions freely, fully, and unreservedly. We hare no hesitation, then, in declaring, that the representatives of tiio whig party, at 1'hiladclphia, hare proved recreant to thiirtrmt. and shamelessly and uuMu.-hingly abandoned tho great and paramount principles of the whig party." In the same pajfr, Mr. i). says, from nil lie can hour?and lie lots intelligence from nearly every township in the county?"the wliigs of Warren, with an almost unanimous voice, denounce and repudiate the monstrous nomination for President ust niiide hy the whig national conventon at Philadelphia." Subsequently the Slur publishes the proceedings of a meeting of the whigs of Clearcreek township, embracing among the resolutions adopted, the following:? "Hesolv? d, That wo unequivocally disavow the nomination of Urn. Taylor as the whig candidate for President, and regurd with decided approbation tho conduct of those members of the Ohio delegation who withheld their assent to it?having only aeled tho part of true whigs. faithful to the principles of their party and the interest of thair country. "Resolved, That wo can hut regard this nomination as I Art auutiier instance of tho unscrupulous sanritlco of political integrity to a servile det'oncu to Southern dictation, and to tho meanest prejudice of a certain class in the North." It remains now to notice the recent liberty and free soil convention, in this city, held on (lie 22<l inst., and to "post" its origin, maturity, and results to the account of the present statu of the whig patty, so far as it may be legitimately charged to it. I was in Cincinnati at tho time when the "cull" for this meeting was put forth, and knew at the time the ohlcct to be. 1st. for #>IWf im,.n the action of the national whig convention: 2d, (in the event the first object should be successful) to solemnise the perfect union of the whigs proper, and the abolition portion of whigs, and to organize for Inn monious action. Copies of the call were circulated in several counties, and after their return, an aggregate of over three thousand names v. as published, as signers t<> it. Tin " effect" contemplated was, that the whig national convention would regard this strong and evidently determined demonstration, so certain an omen that lie " Western Empire " State would he inevitailv lort to any southern candidate, a contingency vliieli could in no manner he encountered without otul defeat; that, without u douht, that body would 'xercise the wisdom and prudence thus demanded, ind nominate an " anti-slavery " man. Had this ' etlect " been realized, there remains not a douht nit we should have witnessed one of the largest loliticul gatherings ever convened in the western States, with a result w hich would Imve carried he election in (>hio like a whirlwind. I need scarcely say, that in the nomination of fen. Taylor, the three thousand signers, and all vho favored the movement, failed in realizing the ilect they hud contemplated. This being the tact, herclore* the part intended to lie consummated in he second, object of putting forth the call, could lot be realized. And this accounts for the conimrative small number that were present at this Convention. 1 was absent from the citv at the inie, but I have had all that is essential 10 u corert opinion, reported to inc. The nuiuber prelenttrom distant counties did not exceed three luiulred ; but then, the reason why every man of he throe thousand was not here, is simply beiuuse of the difliculty lor nie.i to make up their ninds how to act, or w hat part to take under the 'xijgcncy of passing events. And even those who lid conic up. could decide upon nothing definitely; tnd, after much debate and liberal concessions, a tare majority voted a resolution in opposition to ien. Taylor and (Ten. Cass, and another proposing i Convention at llufljilo, on the fltli of August next; o ihut the reader will see. that with the dissatisitd whips in (duo. as with the dissatisfied deinorats. (as heretofore reported hy me,) their sep iale action fioin the great whip party, will depend ipon ih< extent of a sinnlcr separate action on the all ol the anti-slavery whips in the Kustcrn t-'t-ites. A few reflections on tin; effect of this state of hings on the two old parties, and on the effect upii the campaign and its final result. The first query that presents itself is?Can the resent profestanis in either the whig or deinocraic luiiks. be again brought h ick to the old orhodox faith of submission to the organised party Ifcrt ? t: I ilmik this may lie elli-. led, as regards lie |>ol i t ion I protectants in < >hio. Their further sc iirale hi lion, as already stated, will depend upon lie action ol tin ir bretlm n in the Eastern States. Another thought an.se??whether, if such recon lliation is not brought about, the secoders from he two old parties can by any contingency be ironuht to act together, und attaint their former :oileagiiebl This, I think, could lie done, so far k Ohio is concerned; provided, thai in selecting a j aiididate lor President, neither of the distingnislid statesmen who have in former campaigns been he candidates of the old parties, will he taken, with,the repudiation, of t+rc old muea und tin doption of new questions of governmental policy, he nanit s of men connected with liie old issues as | andidutcs must he kept out of the canvass, except is co-laborers in the new caiisc, and new chantii< us inuft he selected. The attempt to make cither Mr. Clay or Mr. .'an Huron the candidate ol seceding whiffs or hinocrats, in their separate action, savors too ituch of n spirit of seeking satisfaction bordering >n revenge, and too much of man-worship for the renins of our institutions; and th attempt to reroncile lite two seceding fractions to the support I ciiher one or the otli;. of these two old oppo; ing hiimpions, is to lose sight of the well-known titlueitces which habits and education in foriuerdays oniinue to exert over the minds and actions of nen in after life. Erom all ihi . as well from tin- rtate of accounts n the democratic party of Ohio, it is utterly imick -ible to say which one t.f the two old parties of his Stntc will honor the draft made upon her by he Baltimore and Philadelphia Conventions, for icr twenty-three votes, or whether either of litem viII be ohh to do so. In short, the electoral vote may he (and I think lie present and probable future contingencies favor itch result) given to General Taylor. If, how vcr, any con-iderable split in the old parties is tcpt up, the cflect will tell most upon the whig >nity, in which event the vote of Ohio may If asi tor General Ciisf. It is not impossible, I add villi confidence, that proper uction may secure the Maif 10 a liura candidate. w k?'ii:un .Tckiuk.

The itnr had taken its rest on the grass : Ties: the small rummer house within the enclosure of , the iron railings in St. Jehu's Park.

'I he remarks of the spectators j wove anything but generous towards the fatigued star. | Some said lie was drunk Others said he was asleep ; I anil indeed every one hud some remark to make, either in pity or in ridicule, liut what created the greatest I excitement wus the gentle form of a female lying alongside of the city slur, iu a sweet state of unconsciousness tluit "daylight had appeared."
