Rb.vunciations or Van Bt'itr.xtsM. The Western papers of a Into date arc al most entirely filled with rentinciationsof Van Burenisni. In tliat section of the country, where General Harrison is intimately known and venerated accordingly, no former sup porter of General Jackson or Van Huron feels any hesitation in declaring his prefer ence for him above till other candidates for the Presidency. The one term doctrine is very popular at the West, and tho fact of Mr. Van Huron's suffering himself to become q candidate for a re-election, has lost him many votes in that section. The nearer tho time of election approach es, the more must every Whin he convinced that the nomination of General Harrison was the very best that could have been made. No other Whig candidate would have had the least chance of carrying a single Western State, with the exception of Kentucky, and to carry I'onsylvnnhi and Virginia, would have been altogether out of the question. Wc are now morally sure of defeating the ad ministration in all the State north of the Ohio, and almost as sure of defeating him in Tennessee, Virginia and Pennsylvania. The stale slanders against General Harrison which arc so industriously circulated by the panders and parasites of Van Huron in this region, arc unknown at the West. There, men of both parties unite in an undivided testimony to his bravery, his talents, and his exalted private virtues. Hence, no former follower of Van Citron feels any shame in leaving the man who has so disgracefully be trayed the trust reposed in him by a confi ding people. No true patriot of any party feels any reluctance to clear himself of a participation in the anti-republican tenden cies of the present administration, and the gross corruption which marks every act of its career. Wo consequently find hundred find hundreds of virtuous yeomanry of the West coming out boldly, and as most men should come, in the public prints, and re nouncing Van Burenisni over their own sig, natures.

F.wry body who has heard of I'li-hn Whittlesey, knows tint no mini in Ohio Mauds biaher in point ol honor, nil grity and patiiotism. Whin in Congtcis, Mr. W. was known by tho name of " the workic." Ho was not willing to receive his own wages, nor that any body else should receive theirs, without doing a full din's work. Mr. W. lately made a speech in Trumbidl county, in which bn took nrcasion to an imadvert upon the extravagance nf the present ad ministration, nnd related some four or five outrageous instances to which we call the attention of the public. Xo. 1. Mr. W. said he would read from the report of the secretary of the treasury, one item, which, although sMinll, is charnctrnstie 'of llie manner in which the public money is expended at Washington. Ho then read the estimate of "Jice hundred and forty add dot larsfor h.''Jhom-c nt the tratcrn vale. tf thcca'itol." He remarked that the ollico of gate keeper originated but a few years since that he had observed from dnv to day, at tho western gate of the rnpitol, a ninn who njipeaieo lo nave nothing to do, ami ycl Kepi his po rtion nt the gate; in a few days he 1 1 nil an umbrella raised over Ins head, and liy this tune Air.

Mr Garland is a plain, sensible, honest man, and his opinions will have great weight with all who know him personally. He says: " Opposed ns I am to all tho reckless and fatal schemes of Martin Vnu Huron, am I bound to sup port their iiutbor bceauso I supported him four years ago, and before he had developed these dangerous principles 7 livery man who has a spark ofpatiiot ism burning in his bosom, or n particle of republican feeding in his heart, will say no. If I approve a man to-day, and to-morrow "proves. unworthy of my confluence, am 1 boilnd to approve him to-morrow because I approved linn to-day 7 F.vcry honest man will say no. This, then, is precisely my case. Mr. Vnu Iliueti wns four years ago, or at least professed to he, what hois not now. He nontaititaina piin ciplcs directly the reverse of what he did then, and for that I have abandoned him; I regaid his present principles dangerous lo liberty and ruinous to the country. 1 his is sufheicnt cause for nie to oppose ins re-iieciion, vvnaievcr u may uo lo outers.

The late survey made by Col.

Thero were nine members of tho opposi tion absent, at tho lime tho vote was tuken. Ol the udvocutes of this bill to strengthen tho hand of power all were present nnd voted except ono member. Thus if tho whole number of mombeis bad been present nnd voted tho result could not have dilfertd, ns there would still frtWcboen a majority of nine in favor of tho bill. This was of course known, or it is not to bo HUppose.il, that nil tho nine membcrsopposed to this "disoignni. bur and revolutionary" ineasiirn of the Present lid ministration, would havo allowed themselves io uo nbscni when tho volo was taken.

The Sub-treasury bill having now passed both Hou ses of Congress, the 1'xccidivT inay now consider him self ns vested with full cnnlrol of tho vholo treasury of tho nation. From the limo of hisnccession to the Presidency, this has been nn object near tho heart of Mr. Van Burcn. The purseof the country has been for years an object of desiro to his longing e.ves i; and this desire is now at length about to be. gratified. Ho is about to clutch llie national purse, with a grasp that cannot nnd will not bo relaxed, until the 'lib of March I'll. How much evil may bo done nnd suffered, cro tho arrival of lint pay oi'iiKt.tvnnAS'cr., may rujt now bo foreseen. The past extravagance of the spoils Ad ministration, which has seuiandcred its millions in nil directions, and for oil sorts of objects, has reduced the national treasure to a low tbb and this in the actual slato of things, may bo a means of safety. When Iho treasure of a nation is handed over to its rnloi o r,r u-timi llin mnnov nf n CnillltrV C.lailllltlg 10 befiee, is devoted to the purpose of strcnlhening tho hand of power, common senso teaches that the less in amount that treasure, the more likely is that country to preserve its freedom.

The convention for nominating a candidate for Congress, and also a candidate for Elector, from this district, will be held at Cambridge, on Wednesday next. Wc hope to see a full reprc sontation. I here is no doubt, whatever, of our ability to redeem the district, with reasonable exertion, if wc arc hut united ; and of this we do not permit ourselves to doubt. Several indi iduals have been named in connection with thi ubject all good men and true and either of whom would do honor to the btate. Let then the people coino together, prepared to surrender personal and local considerations, and when, on a fair comparison of notes, the voice of the dis trict is ascertained, on whomsoever the choice fall, his cause shall be our cause, not for the sake of the man, for wc aro no man's cham nion, but for the country's sake. Men are but instruments to givo effect to principles ; and as principles are higher and holier than material things, so is the agent nothing compared to the result to bo accomplished. IOt this truth bo kept in view, and acted upon and perhaps there was never a period when it was more justly ap preciatod and all will bo well. Wo have known and acknowledged whig majority in the district, and with that union and concert which the crisis demands, and every indication war rants, the " Old Fourth" will be redeemed. TUB TARIFF. Whatever doubts may have existed as to the real sentiments of the administration in reference to tho tarill' and American industry, they will soon be removed. Mr. Van Ness, in his remarks on the 4th, proclaimed open and unequivocal hostility to the high tariff or protecting system The sub-treasury which contemplates a specie currency at the end of four years ho insisted was all the protection the country needed ; and then went on to show how it vo.:!d accompli it, viz : by reducing the circulating medium, and taking from the merchant tho means of import ing foreign goods. This, in connection with cash eliitic, h0 contended, was the only desira blc protection. Grant, for a moment, that tho subtreasury is to havo tho clfect ascribed to it to reduce the circulation so low as to prevent importation, and what becomes of the farmer and tho laborer J Under such a contraction of tho currency, how long would labor, wool, or any of the agricultural prnlucts of the country sus stain evon their present ruinous prices ! Not ono moment. Tho manufacturer might, to be sure, live under such a state of things ; hut it would be at the expense of the farmer, the me chanic, and the laborer by paying one half or ono third what ho now pays for material and labor. This is precisely the doctrine advanced by Ucnton, Duchanan, Walker and others, in tho Senate last winter. It is practically redu cing our currency lo the "standard of the world," and placing American labor upon a par with the pauper labor of Europe ! Hut wo aro rejoiced at this frank avowal of the real sentiments and intentions of tho administration. It presents the issue fairly before the people, and they havo tho question in their own hands. If the present administration is continued wc shall havo tho trial of specie currency, and another grand " ex periment" upon the industry of the nation, to as certain whether tlio subtreasury will not do in stead of a tariff. Aro the people prepared for this 1 Aro they willing to hazard tho van ag ricultural and manufacturing interests of tho nation to undergo an entire and radical chango in valuation of all property throughout tho land ! And for what! why, for the sake of a mere "experiment .'" Who can undergo this ordeal .' No man v!io in vet at this moment worth four limes as much as ho owes ! And who is to be benefited by it !

In the second dis trict the candidates arc, Thomas (libbs Morgan, Whig, and John 13. Dawson, L. F. ; Mr. Chiiin, the present representative declines a nomination. This district is somewhat doubtful.

In tho third district, John Moore, (W.) and Richard Winn, (L. F.) aro the candi dates; the district is strongly Whig and no doubt is entertained of the election ejf Mr Moore. As there will bo a U. S.

'.. Some weeks since, the locofocos in Ohio'got up and published a lorged circular, purporting to emanate from the Whig committee, in which the most rcvoltinrx language and sentiments were attributed to tho party. But the thing was to gross and absurd to go the rounds of even the locofoco papers. It was instantly nailed to the counter, and tho authors detected and exposed. So palpable and odious was the im position, that not above half a dozen of the most degraded of the administration prints, through out the country,could nutster impudence enough to give it publicity, and by common consent, it had gone to tho receptacle of things lost uron earth. Hut now, three weeks after the thin was dead and buried, Winslow has dug it up, dressed il out with some of his choice editorial, and presented it to his readers I and this, too, with a FULL KNOWLEDGE of its infamous origin and character. Hut this is iu perfect character with the Sentinel, and wo shall not waste time nor words upon it. The document bears the impress of falsehood upon its face, and, as we before remarked, no respectable adminis tration paper in the country has dignified it with a notice. Even Mr. Van Ness, in his fourth of July harangue, could not condescend to ho stow upon it a passing remark ! Would lie have passed it over in silence if he had believed one word of it 3 No, no. lie knew and ap preciatcd its infamous character, and ho dared not insult his audience with it. The following, from an Ohio paper puts tho thing in its true light ; and we dismiss the subject with the sin glo remark that our opponents arc reduced as Zoic in moral strength as wc can desire to sec them, when they find themselves compelled to resort to such unspeakable meanness.

The soveral towns out of the village, and came iu in grand procession. When they jiassed the American wo counted, and found they had 'M on horseback and 80 vehicles of did'eront kinds. About noon a procession formed, less than nino hundred, and marched to tho brick church, where, after tho usual exercises of Kinging etc. and an excellent prayer from the Rov. Mr. Brown, Mr Van Ness I rococded to topcat his Woodstock Epeccl', with some slight variations. There was not ono word in it that related to the day or the occasion, nospirit stirring allusions, no thrills of eloquence, and lcs.i of argument than wo had been led to anticipate from such a source. It was, indeed, a moro party harangue. Of the toasts, speeches, &.c. at the table, wc know nothing, hut presume they wore good, for they cheered them very much as the whig.3 do Old Tip. WINSLOW vs. THE LADIES. The chivalrous Ajax of tho Sentinel is be coming demented. Since the memorable 25th, ho has played such tricks before the town aa make the whigs laugh and his party weep. To our own mind no farce could equal them. Tho grimaces of Harlequin aro without effect, and the glories of " Bunch and Judy" fade in the comparison. On that Thursday morning do vou remem ber it Winslow tho tremendous flood of peo ple that rolled into the village, swept him front his moorings. He was surprised, astounded, absolutely petrified. He couldn't keep his eye shut, and he dare not open them. But a parox ysm of rage soon succeeded to this silent won-' dor ; ho raved and ranted, running hither and thither like a terrified terrier; but at every cor ner of the town he was thrown into a fresh ago ny. Somo kind friend placed in his hands an inverted telescope, and ho felt relieved. Ho could now look with some slight complacency upon these tens of thousands of " dandies :" things which before arose before his eyes terri- ble and vast, almost faded away in the distanco ; and by the next day he had so far recovered as as lo issue a proclamation that after all his fearrj and contortions of visage, there were but just 39fJ0, to a unit. But a week's cogitation upon the tnittcr was too much for him : in spito of his telescope ho coald n't help thinking that there were cicral people in town : tho shouti of the " duped rabble" stiil riftfg in his ears : thoso " huge paw-," did not seem to be exactly ' tho thing' for dandies, and that sea of heads still rose before his mind's eve, and like Ihnquo'g ghost, in the case of his " illustrious predeces sor," drove the hlcod back to his quailing heart- That ringing too, "foolish, silly and contempti ble as it was, seemed to strike a chord even in his bosom. But above all, those tiannt.ks ! Ho could n't shun them: they haunted him: whero evor he turned, they waved before him : waking or sleeping, at home or abroad, with a composing stick in his hand cran oluce holder at his elbow, he could not rid himself of the vision : wherever ho went, or whatever lie did, this sole cjacula tion was on his lips " is this a-banner that I sco before mo 1" What 't to be done ? ho cannot endure itffis weak eyes, unused to the light, are dazzled by "the dawn of a brighter day" than he has been accutoined to : and hut heart beat fearfully, as the shrill cry " Vermont to tho rescue" meets his cars. He raves and rages, hut that clout lio-lp him. llctdiouts out about federalism, bank, log cabins, &c: and, in his desperation, travels widely out of his beaten path, and preaches about morality ! " Think of that, matter Brook." And yet, those banners ! ho knows who made themhc knows that thoy were woven by fair hand, and that warm and pure hearts are engaged in the matter. And so, since he has been balllud at every other point, anil must now try the forlorn hope," ho prepares for the last act of a desperate man. Ho burnishes his shield, draws down his visor, poises his lance, shuts his eyes, shouts ' O'Callaghan and saint Van Ness to the rescue," and spurs on to a furi ous, blood thirsty charge against the ladies. And now, undoubtedly, ho feels better : a load has been taken from his heart : he has discharged his duty to his country, and flatters himself that these digs will flout him no more. i For shame, Winslow! your mother or your better half should have taught vou other man ners. Or, if it is too late for this, keep closer to vour great leader, the ex-minister. He can loll you better than that. He knows full well that no good can come of thus throwing away every spark of common couricsy or decent civility. Our word for i', you yyill be a gainer by persuading Van Ness to draw the leading strings ,n little tighter : it will not be well for the party to allow you to escape from the leash. One word more, neghber : the ladies (poaco be with them) arc not terrified. If you hail been riding out, last Saturday, you might have met a lino carriage load of them, all put up in good order, and neatly labelled "a small branch of the weak minded ladies of Burlington." It would have done your eyes good to see them : their bright eyes and happy faces would hare charmed away your rage, and if you had found it convenient to attack them again in your e!o gant print, we feel assured that you would havo " roared as gently as a sucking dove." in relation to the paternity of the silt document winch was attempted to bo palmed upon the public as the ginuinc production ol llie wing t.cntral e.oinmittce Columbus, Juno 1, l-'-IO.

The person rifered to was the repoitcr of the proceedings of the tcnate last winter for tho Bulletin, nnd an occasional contributor of eiditorial articles for that paper during that period. He was, and is, a decided iriend of tho administration. Mr. Sago was for some time a jour neyman printer in the ollico of the Bulletin, snd hns frequently set from articles m his hand writing. The eomeidince of a mass ol" typo found together in tho Bulletin office, with those which had hem used in printing the circular, especially as regal ds the figures and capital letters in the circular, with other circum stances not necessary to bcditaded heie, had satisfied him that the circular was punted at the Bulletin Olliee.
