POMEROV, JOSEPH CLARK. FOR GRAND ISLE COUNTY. JOEL ALLEN. For Congress, HON. HEBI ALLEN". WHO IS JOHN SMITH! This qtcstion has been so often asked of late, ond w ith such apparent sincerily, t tint wo liavc much regretted Hie lack of the requisite informal ion to answer t he inquiry. It is indeed surprising Hint those who nomi nated Mr. Smitli s-hould not have anticipa ted this inquiry, and provided on answer for it. A committee endowed with fertile imaginations, would, no doubt, havo done the Hon. gentleman great justice, and at tho same time, have relieved us from an irksomo and thankless task. But toe can not dodge tho responsibility. Our readers nro entitled to such information as tho na ture of the case admits. From the flippant remarks of the Senti nel about the" republican candidate," sonic havo been led to suppose that Mr. Smith is really a democrat, while others assert that lie is on old federalist, others still, that he is a Whig, an ontimason, an abo litionist, &c. and yet the circumstance of his having received a nomination and being supported as a VanUuren man, rather gives a coloring of probability to a report that he is, just at present, a little leaning that way, though this, we observe, is stoutly denied by the Express. So that, after all, the question returns, " What is John Smith ? And for the purpose of answering this, in quiry, wo propose to introduce the Address of the democratic convention in 1834, we find it recorded in the Sentinel. Allud ing to Mr. Smith, the address says, he is " A man of fair character in private life " --but of the old federal party the oppo " nent and REVILER of Jefferson and JIadison-he STRENUOUS OPPO "SER of the last WAR, and found exert " ing all his influence to thwart the govern " mcnt in tho prosecution of it; and if we may judge from Iiib past political course, he " has not discarded the principles by which " ho was then governed." Democratic "Address, Aug. 1834. This is tho testimony of a democratic convention composed of the leading men from oil ports of the district men familiar, it is to be presumed, with Mr. Smith's character and early history. But to this the Franklin Journal demurred, whereupon the Sentinel of tho next week added the following clcnchcr : " John Smith was opposed to the last " war, has always been a rank federalist, ' ond if he did not live to opposo the elec ' tion ond administration of Thomas Jeffer ' son, he has nevertheless rendered himself " equally culpable with those who did, by a " zealous opposition throughout his whole "political career, to Jeffersonian principles. Will tho writer or the Editor of the Jour 41 nol deny this? Why has tho writer (in " tho Franklin Journal) with such jesuili " cal fin ess passed over tho charge of Fed. ' eralitm made upon Mr. Smith in the 'Address. Docs he think that the Dem ocratic Freeman will be deceived by this ' puerile attempt at white washing his " former political character, ond by it be " drown into hip support ? Was he not the ' zealous coadjutor ol the Hon. Benjamin Swift during tho last war? and do the ' leading partisans of Mr. Smith consider " men who deemed it unbecoming a moral "and religious people to rejoice at our 'victories," "good Democrats?" Sentinel Aug. 15. 1834. Such was the significant inquiry ol the Scn'inel in 1834, little dreaming, wo pre sume, that it would be called upon-jgPCff to prove that this samo " revilcr of Jeffer son, one who deemed it unbecoming a mor al and religious people to rcjoico ot our victories," was indeed a " good democrot." JJui thus said, th,, rccorj, An, jjj the Sentinel and tho democratic address speak the truth in 1034 ? If ao, then is tho prob lem lolved, and we moy informlho next man who interrogates us, that tho Hon. John Smith " hat always been a rank federalist, " a revilcr of Jefferson ond Madison, o " strenuous opposor of tho last wor, a man " who deemed it unbecoming a moral and " religious people to rejoice at our victo. I i ries." And yet, strange to tell, he is now 1 a democratic !candidat! B rr man Allen Let the Sentinel ogain answer : "He is n Gentleman of excellent talents, of "real candor, and llic most patient perseverance. He tins lonir been in public We, nnd being exten sively known, it is unnecessary lo speak uf his qualifications. Those who know him can appre ciate his worth." Sentinel, July 1826. Again, "It would lit) superfluous to speak in commenda lion of Mr. Allen to those of his fellow-citizens who are peisonally acquainted with him but those, ulineninv not this ndwintnae, mav be assured that he is a gentleman of irreproachable character, of vigorous mm i, wHiny iaiiuui;ici-i i o uo- poilment, liberal in I113 opiniot's, and of great firmness and integrity of pin pose. With an inti mate knowledge of the resources of the country, the habits and pursuits of the people, and the present exigences and relative importance of die various branches oT productive industiy, he unites uncommon assiduity, business-talent, and practical good sense. He is disposed to encourage, by all safe and consistfnt means, agriculture and inanu factutcs." Sentinel Aug. 4. "He is a gentleman of fine intents, great force of intellect, trained by his habits of life lo deep reflection. He fearlessly grapples with the most important subjects, nnd necr leaven them until he h.is explored them lo the utmost, and is remaikablo for the calm consideration which he brings to every niliicct, and for the clear and forcible mannpr in wlncli lie conveys ins lucas. oenunei, iov. io Wc might multiply columns of similar outhoritics from the same source ; but wc shall content ourselves for the present, by simply adding that these articles claim no less a patronogo than tho gifted pen oftho late Benjamin F. Bailey, Esq., between whom and Mr. Allen, wc have also the au thority of tho Sentinel, in 1832, for saying " there was no material difference of opin And now, fellow citizens, it remains for you to decide between these men, 6iich os we hove shown them--such as you know them. Who is most entitled lo public con fidence ? Is it John Smith ? or is it He man Allen ? Let the ballot box furnish an honest response. SMITIIISM vs. VAN BURENISM. Mr. Smith, we Icorn, has recently been at Johnson, arranging the political cam paign. Finding that Van Burenism is get ting into bad odor, he has instructed his supporters lo dodge the question. Accordingly, tho Express is laboring to convince the public that this election has has no connexion with the administration, its measures, or Mr. Van Buren. Hear it: We know manv of vou have little interest in, and less caie for, the two gicat parties of ihe day, Mr. Van Buren lias nol met jour approbation in all tilings, the Allenmen Know this, and lo draw jou from Mr. Smith, ihey cry out in nil manner of hard times timiinst Van lluien. So far as your vote is concerned, Mr. Van Buren, or Van Buren- ism has not lung to do with the question, Lsa moitle Express. Was there ever a moro gross insult offer cd to the understandings of men ? Here is a candidate nominated by a Van Buren convention on the tnge consideration of his being a Van Buren man, and pledged to support the measures of tho administra tion; and yet wc ore impudently told that "eofaros our voles arc concerned, Mr. Van Buren or Van Burenism has nothing to do toith the question ."' Of what materi al docs Mr. Smith take tho voters of this district to be, that ho thus presumes to pal. tcr with them ? Is thy servant a dog that he should be treated thus? But let us turn to the doings of the convention which nom 'mated Mr-Smitli, and seo whether they thought Van Burenism had any thing to do witli tho subject. The following is the first of the scries of resolutions odoptcd with tho nomination of Mr. Smith, as wc find them recorded by Mr. Secretary East man, the samo individual who now informs us that " Van Burenism has nothing to do with tho question." Resolved, That wo have implicit and unshaken confidence in HiHiibihty, integrity and patriotism of our present duel maguirote, Martin Van Buren ; ami thai his ndminisirnli in by n elrictf and firm adherence lo democratic principles woll-mcrils the cordial and tmcliviucu tuppori ol Hie republican paiiy." Ill the eimplicily of our old fashioned rc Aim wuu is liviuuii auvii i 1 publican heart, wo hod supposed that such a proclamation of the sentiments of a party was binding on tho nominee, ond ot the eomo tlmo furnished the honest freeman with a ground work for his decisio'n, " eo far as his voto i concerned." But it scorn8 wo ore amazingly behind tho times. The mnttnr nf a man's political nrinciplcs, it turns out, has nothing to do with tho quos. tion, so far as voting is concerned! " 0, no," says Mr Smith, it is utterly absurd to dream of hampering a great politician with nicies of faith and a political creed. hose who know mo will never attempt it Fellow citizens I started in lifo a federalist, but have by turns been a National Ropub' lican, on Antlraason, a Whig, on Abolition ist, and am now o Van Buren man, pledged to support tho Administration and its measures ; but i wish it distinctly unuur. stood in Lamoille and other Whigdistricts, that, "60 far os votes are concerned, Van Buren or Van Burenism has NOTHING TO DO WITH THE QUESTION." This is practically tho latigungo of the Hon. John Smith, and this tho position in which ho now stands before the Freemen of the district- There lot him stand. And if o innjority of tho people do not proclaim throuuh the ballot box that, "so far as their votes arc concerned," they will have no thing to do with such o twodler, then will wo acknowledge thot wo havo mistaken their intelligence and straight-forward lion esty. THE STATE HOUSE. As far back as 1827 tho State House question was considered one of vital impor tancc to this county, and Mr Allen's excr lions during tho session of 1826, when that question was lormcrly agitated, appear to have been well appreciated ot the time and we observe that this consideration was urged by the Sentinel as one of almost par amount importance in the conteit between that gentleman and Mr. Swift, in 1827. "But to say nothing of local objects or pri valo projects, wo havo somo of a public kind such as THE LOCATION OF THE STATE HOUSE, and tho support of a College. Mr, Allen has been a faithful supporter and munifi, cent patron of the one and has breasted a storm ot pmjudico to support tho other. itnine. eu.2, 1U27. Such was the languogo oftho Sentinel in 1827, Well, in the progress of events this state house question ogain came up in 1832. We found Mr. Allen the same "faithful supporter" of the interests oftho district, that lie was in 1826, nnd .just os ready to "bieost tho storm of prejudice" in behalf of his constituents. But how did we find the Hon. John Smith on this occasion? Let his recorded votes answer. Let the mortified and disappointed advocates of our rights on that occasion, those who witnes scd his trickery and contemptible shuffling answer. Let tlio people who aro now taxed ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY FOUR THOUSAND DOLLARS to pay for o house which the town of Burlington pledged itself to erect free of expense to the state wo say, let the tax-payers an swer. And, now in the further progress of events, Hemon Allen ond John Smith come before us for our suffrages. Whom shall wo trust ? Him who has always botrayed us. whenever, and so often as opportunity presented? or one whom wo have ever found faithful, capable and honest? If per fidy nnd treachery deserve lo be rewardedj so say. ond let vour vote be for Smith. But if slrait-forwaril open handed honesty, con. sistency of character, and uncompromising integrity, bo of superior consideration, then shall wc record our votes, one and all, in favor of He-.;an Allen. If, indeed, the considerations urged by the Sentinel in 1827 in fovor of Mr. Allen as against Mr. Swift, were sound, ore they not conclusive ogainst John Smith? And yet, with a consistency peculiarly its own, tho Sentinel would now urge us to honor tho man who has stabbed to the heart! oyc, reward John Smith, at the expense of He. man Allen ! Shame, whero is thy blush ! THE FUTURE. A writer in the Sentinel, who signs him self Jefferson, and hails from St Albans, puts forth the following emphatic predic tion, which the editor endorses os tho "em bodied wisdom of experience :" Fellow citizens I urn old and infirm, nnd shall not live lo fee my piedictions fulfilled ; but remem ber I litis day 1 c II you that ten years will not pass away lie lore on will see another break down ol me banks and :ig.iin have to enduio u II the evils we hate so lately passed through. Hero is a frank acknowledgment, thai the administration haa no plan, no project, no hope of restoring the currency and busi ness of the country, to tho palmy stato in which they found it; and, as a dying admo nit ion it ought not to pass unheeded. Un. der pretence of furnishing a " belter curren cy," our rulers havo prostrated tho best currency that this or any other country was cvor blest with ; and after ten years of vain experiments," resulting in tho pros ttation of individuals, banks credit, and tho business oftho country, tho administration abandons tho people to their fate, admits its inability, ond even denies tho existence oftho power in Congress to regulate tho currency at all. And what docs Mr. Van Buren propose, under thia elate of thing Whv. simnlv that tho government ' take I caro of itself," and tho people, the curren cy, ond businoisof the country, toko cato lor of themselves also, or oil no to tho devil to- aether. Aye, and what is tho promise for futuro? Worse nnd worse. Tho " cm- bodied wisdom of cxporienco" proclaims that tho end is not yet that tho present embarrassments ore but tho prelude to the moro wide-spread and pervading desolation which is to follow. Tho " old men" who havo thus far followed tho administration, os they compose their palsied limbs for the grave, (emblematical of tho administration itself,) nro sending forth, one after another, thoir warning voices, declaring their con- viction that there is no conservative prin- cip!o, no resting place in tho present down- word course ofthings. " I am old and in. firm," says the venerablo patriot, about to rest his hoarv head upon tho pillow of death, ID" ' J3u remember I this day tell you, that ton years will not pass away be fore you will seo another break down, and AGAIN HAVE TO ENDURE ALL THE EVILS THAT WE HAVE SO LATELY PASSED THROUGH! !" What then is tho duty of freemen ? Is ii to follow Van Buren to the very gates of perdition, without even a roy ol hope ? to wade through tho scenes oftho last fivo or six years? or is it, in the language of an honorable Senator, to declare thot " we arc no longer supporters of Van Buren or his measures ?" "Was not Mr. Smith's first public act a.ier Becoming oi oge, our.ng ino war, a committee of arrangements lot a public dinner given to tho Vermont volunteers who fought in the battle of Plaltssburgh ? Express. No sir this was nol exactly Mr. Smith's first public set. Mr. Smith made hi debut asa public man initio capacityof Aid to the celebrated General who went with Governoi Chittenden's proclamation to or der the militia back from Platlsburg ! The General, it will be recollected, was mount cd behind a dragoon, and marched into camp; but the Aids, we believe, escaped That Mr. Smith felt grateful for his deliv crancc, and aided in getting up a dinner for tho volunteers after it was ascertained how the popular current was setting, we make no doubt. Besides although the federal party was then in power, they were hard pressed by tho democracy, and Mr. migui eventually tan, aouuiiess uccmeu 11 most prudent to pray not to the Lord, alone, CHEERING. Wc last week published Senator Fosters card, announcing that he was "no longer a supporter of Van Buren or his measures." More recently we learn that Judge W11, r.ouaiiny, a man of great worth and much influence in Franklin County, has also an. nounced his secession from Van Burenism. Ho says ho could support Jackson, but he has no confidence in Van Buren. And last, though not least, tho Van Buren candidate for StaleTreasurer, CiiAnLEs R. Cleaves, Esq. given notice that ho cannot, as an honest man, ony longer support the meas. urcs nf the administration. Hear him "Afy sentiments respecting the currency of the country, nnd the sub.treasury sclfme in iinrlicnliir. nre so dissimilar fiom those entertained by many of that I cannot remain in this position without justly incurring the imputation of duplicity or without un auaiitlnmneni ol my present views. I must there fore decline being any longer consideied a candi uate REPUBLICAN ADDRESS. The Sentinel publishes a funny docu ment, purporting to be on. "Address of the republican members of Congress to the people of the U. Slates." Now tho cream of the joke is, that three of tho four Sen ators who 6ign it, arc old federalists, of tho rankest kind ! One of these, Williams of Maine, distinguished himself during the bbI war by publicly declaring that "the doctrines of the Federal party were as pure as thoso of Jesus Christ." Another of these, Wall of New Jersey, no longer ago than last winter made tho following significant annunciation in tho Senate chamber! "Horo, Sir, in the presence of " tho American people, I avow that I was "a federalist, and acted with that party, "zealously and actively, so long as their "flag waved in New Jersey." But tho most amusing feature about this inrRepublicancOl eo styled address, is the fact, that, of tho four Senators whose names arc attached to it, thrco at least misrepresent thoir constituents. These aro (CTReuel Williaristj of Maine, 0G arret D. Wallo of Now Jersey, andO'WiLLiAM AllenXI of Ohio. Add to t this tho Chairman of tho Conven tion 0John M. Niles0) of Connecticut who is in tho same category, and wo con form a sufficiently just estimate of tho Democracy of tho party thoy ropresent. BANKS. Tho Scntinol has a great deal to say about banks, and the crying evils of banking, and would fain inako tho public boliovo that tho party aro honestly endeavoring to put them down. But how nro tho facts? They havo hardly a candidato before- tho peoplo but whol is directly or indirectly interested in I banks. Take, for instonce.thoir Candidate representative, mr. yman, an oiu ank director in the t armors ana Median tc's Bank, and one of tho largest stockhoiu. ers in this section ! Then their candidate for Senator, Mr. Haswell, who is also a stockholder and director in tho Bank of JJur lington ! And then,ogoin, their " democta tic" candidato for Congress, John bmttli, the creator, sustainer, and upholdor oftho Bank of St. Albans the very man who, two years since, shouldered the expiring charier ot that institution and carried it through tno legislature in spitoof all opposition ! Tor riblo havoc these men would make among banks ! And yet the Sentinel foams and froths about monopolies, ond impudently calls upon tho democracy to express their utter detestation of banks by voting for such candidates! How dare that oban doned print look an honest man in the face A WORD TO THE WHIGS. What oro the Whigs of tho country about? Arc they wide awako and active as they should be, or aro they resting on their arms and reposing in perfect safety ? We tell them that this is no time to bo in activeno time to sleep now. We under. stand, fully, the plan of operations agreed upon by tho Loco-Focos. They will say but little openly move obout slyly tall in whispers avoid as much as possible all discussion with the Whigs and often con cede, or deny, that they arc to be defeated. And. at the samo time, thev will adoot eycry CJipcdient..resort t0 cvcry falsehood "' "vuy nuivu. iinin mr. Van Buren and his Sub-Treasury Scheme. We say to the Whigs to every opponent oftho sub-treasury lo your posts and do your duly. The loco focos can bo beaten handsomely triumphantly, but nol without an effort. All our strength must be brought to bear upon them. Too much confidence may bo fatal to us. If wc knew that our majority would be 500, we should labor just as hard to increase it one vote, as if it required that vote to give tho election. A bare election of a Whig Governor will not answer. Wc must carry the State by such a majority as will appal the stoutest heart among the loco focos make Mr. Van Bu on tremble and destroy all hope on the part oftho corrupt men in power, that they can ever force their radical measures upon i hp rntmtrv. To vour nosts then freemnn THE PROSPECT. Every day renders the result of the elec. tion in this district, less doubtful. In Grand Islo county, all is well. In Franklin, the Whigs are wide awake, and full of confi donee. The Messenger, which entered the contest rather conllv, is now full of zeal and courage, and the way in which it uses up the twadlers, is a caution to fence men. In Lamoille and Orleans, if Mr Smith succeeds in denying his Van Buren ism, ho may receive a tolerable support ; otherwise it will be meogre. And then there's old Chittenden county, wc all know her true lo herself truo to her friends when she gives a cordial support th John Smith, (of all other men living) why, then we shall believe it. But in the mean time, wo deny that she has become stultified, or lacks the spirit to spurn a hand that beats her. From ihe Franklin Messenger- Mr- Briggs, representative 111 Congress from Massachusetts declines being a candi date for ro election. Duties of a private nature induce him to retire from public life The Hampshire Gazette says, 'though an able debater, he Mr. Briggs, has nol been 0110 of those who deemed it necessary to establish tho reputation of a statesman, to spend his talents in the senseless gabble which has occupied so much of the national Ipgislature of late years; but he has been content tn perform ilia duty in a more silent and unobtrusive manner. In his address to tho electors, he says : 'It is true, fellow citizens, my support of, or opposition to measures, has been raihor in deed than in word. I havo gen erally been content lo vote, and not lo talk. The House of Reprpsentutives, that 'great political Babel' his become a scene of legis Intive babbling, rather than of calm, digni fied and useful discussion and deliberation, and I have chosen for tho most part, not to add to the confusion of tongues by min gling my voico in the common medley.' Tho opposition who complain because Mr. Allen has not more conspicuously 'min gled his voice with 1 he common medley,' will learn o lesson from the above, HONESTY Notwithstanding tho brazen audacity of a large portion of tho Van Buren papers in denying tho realities of the late Whig vic tories, eomo few of them dare to acknowl. edgo the truth. Tho following confession of tho New Orleans Courier is pretty full : "The elections nro now over, and the democracy are defeated. This is but I tie termination of a general defeat which commenced nt the opposite extremity of the Union, and has swept every thing before it until it has nrrived here, Here it is hoped ihere will be a resting place ; the victorious parly have no inducement tu push their conquest further, unlets thcii uim be the dominion of nil the continent of America. Within the limits of the United Slates we frankly confess their triumph it complete." It will bo difficult, says tho New York Star, to keop tho Evening Post out of tho Whig ranks. Evory now ond then he hoists his uhouldcr of mutton eail on his littlo yttw and stecra right into the Whiff channel. Tho following is a covert but hard hit at tho present administration : We doubt whether much is trained, after all, by doing things for political effect. u uiuoi juiniu man in iiiu uiiu is no woo is tho most sincere ho who docs things for their intrinsic proprioty and justice, insieau oi uowg mem lor tno saxo ot oppenranccs. l he statesman who is per petually laying clap traps on the politico! theatre, will find, in the long run, that there arc people in the world as shrewd as ho is cunning peoplo who will sea thro' his singe tricks and expose them, and who will lenvc him at last to stand in the samo relation to the honest and faithful states man that the juggler or mountebank stands to tho philosopher. OUT BIUEF CANDLE. Tho Derby Lino Democrat, a paper got up for the election, and chartered by the friends of Mr. Smith, we undcrctand, has kicked tho beam. Tho following, from its valedictory, contains rather a broad insinuation. " You who aro Democrats in principle, not in name, go and do vour duty, and leavo your two-tidtd men to enjoy tho good will of -Mv.il uiiwiiun menus, iv is wnn remcianco that wo talto this step; which may seem sur-. prising tn sotno, but necessity compels us to do it. Not exactly nceeijity.'btit a disposition not to bo misused or dupod, by designing pol iticians. Wo will do all in our power lo nd vanco tho interests of tho democratic party, consistent with our situation. But to labor day afior day without remuneration, is ralhor moro than can bo expected of a Patriot in any causo, howevor honest and just. We bid you all a kind farewell, and may prosper ity and happiness be your future lot." One Side.

St. Albans Messenger. DUNCAN'S SPEECH. Mr Duncan's Speech, is now p-oinf the rounds of tho loco foco naoers. ns n. vindication of the Administration from the chorgo of extrovagonce made by Mr. Bond. The Philadelphia Commercial Herald, in reply to the New York Evening Post, in wnicn ine auovo assertion is made, puts the following quere, which places the ques. tion honestly and frankly boforo the public. He asks, "has Mr. Duncan nroved that 1 THIRTEEN MILLIONS OF DOL LARS, the highest amount expended by the government in any one year during Mr. Aiinm-i' aiiministratiiin, is equal lo THIR-. TY EIGHT MILLIONS, the amount of the expenses of tho government for one year, under Mr. Van Buren? If he has proved, or can prove this, then we will admit that he has triumphantly refuted tho positions taken by Mr. Bond. But if ho has not and cannot prove this, tho "Re trenchment and Reform" administrations must stand ennvictod before the world of GROSS AND CRIMINAL EXTRAVA. GANCE. OR OF HAVING FALSI FIED THEIR PROMISES." (HrTlie beauty of tho affair is that Mr, Duncan never mado tho speech at all. The following is the history of this elec tioneering document, so far n3 it had any contusion with the doings oftho House. ".Mr Dukcan was understood 10 favor tho amendment of the Senate. He was going into a general rpply 10 Mr Bond's speech upon retrench ment, delivered some lime ago, when ".Mr. Jenifer and Mr Sidlef called him to order for irrelevancy.

The committee decided that he be not permitted to proceed, nnd "Mr Duncan still persisted; nl which there were loud and prolonged cries of order from all parts of the House. "The Chairman.

Loud cries of nijieed ! fiom all quarters of I lie House ensued, and Mr Duncan sat down. ".Mr. Uond hoped that Iim colleague would 'late in Midi wiitlen speech iliat il was not delivered in the prasenco of the member lo whom il was a reply." "IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE HEROES OUT OF M KN WHO ADOPT THE MAXIMS OF COBLERS AND TINKERS."-Go6e. Such are the terms of abuo and re proach applied to the U. S. Navy by Ihe Washington Globe! Mr. Van Buren, it would seem, turns up his Presidential nose at "Coblcrs" and "Tinkers." Mechanics must not stand between tho wind and his nobility! Aro wo to have 0 new era? Are our "Heroes" now to bo taken exclu sivcly from Dra wing-Rooms? Are "Cob. lers" and "Tinkers" to bo proscribed? This may bo very well in fair weather, but in tho days that "tried men's souls" tho Republic got good service out of such "Coblers" as Rocer Sherman and 6uch "Tinkers" as Gen- Greene. Eve. Jour.
