Address of tho Whig State Convention.
We present upon our first page the Address of
the Whig Stute Convention, and we trust that
none of our readers will be deterred by its una?
voidable length from giving it an attentive perusal.
It succinctly enumerates tbe great principles and
measures of tho Whig party, shows their identity
with those supported by the Republican fathers of
our country, and depicts the beneficial results
which they then produced. It then passes from
the policy of tbe Nation to that of the Slato, tri?
umphantly vindicates tho Whigs from the charge
of involving the State in her present debt, shows
how uncalled for and unnecessary was tho imposi?
tion of the mill-tax, acd appeals to the People to
sustain the true interests of the State and tine Na?
tion. We ask every voter to read this plain state?
ment of Whig principles, to compare it with the
ruinous doctrines of Loco-Focoism, and then
calmly decide which ho prefers ; and when he has
formed his opinion, let him not sit down contented,
but if he values the permanent prosperity of his
country and himself, let him go and vote accotd
ingly, and ask his neighbor to go and do likewise.
03* A correspondence between Hoti. Jonathan
Roberts, late Collector of the Port of Philadelphia,
and tho President, Secretary of tho Treasury, &c,
is published in the Philadelphia United States Ga?
zetted It contains explicit documentary evidence
that the removal of Mr. Roberts from the office wus
in consequence of his conscientious and honorable
refusnl to remove faithful officers and appoint in
their places thorough-going supporters of the Ex?
ecutive, named by Mr. Tvler himself! Comment
on this disgraceful contrast between the profes?
sions and practice of the President, would be su?
perfluous. We leave him to the scorn of ali hon?

The Doctrine* of Dorriaui?IVo. 2.
Let us clear awa\ fully the mists of delusion
with which the anarchist-* seek to cover the true
question from view : Be it known, then, that there
is no controversy about the formation of a Con?
stitution in Rhode Island, providing a very lib?
eral extension of the Right of Suffrage. On
this all parties an; agreed. Each party has formed
a Constitution, abolishing the Property qualifica?
tion and extending the Right of Suffrage: the
Dorr party to all citizens of the Union who have
been one your residents of the State; the Govern?
ment to all native citizens who have been resi?
dents three years. To characterize them, there?
fore, as the ' Free Suffrage ! party 0:1 one side and
the ' Landholder's ' or 1 Charter ' on the other, is
a gross und wilful deception, yet one which the
Lf>co-Foco press habitually resorts to for the ac?
complishment of the maiu purpose tor which ? the
party' has embarked in this agitation?to wit,
the creating of a popular impression that they are
the friends of r'ree Suffrage and the Whigs its
enemies. The Government party not only formed
an essentially Ftee Constitution, but they sup?
ported it with all their force and would have
adopted it, but that the Dorr men rallied" all their
forces and defeated it at the Polls by a small mti
i??ri tv?by the votes, too. of the very men to whom
it extended the Right of Saffrige .' By this in?
tensely factious movement?intended to drive the
Government party back upon the old statu of
things, and thus enable the agitators to keep up
the slang about 'King Charles's Charter'?they
clearly pronounced their ow n Constitution a farce.
*ince this had before been adopted, and. if valid,
rendered any farther action of the old Govern?
ment of no legal force. In voting down the legal
Constitution, the Dorrites therefore clearly repu
Jiated their own.
The objections made to the legal Constitution
were that it required a man to reside too long in
the Stale before he became a voter; that it did
lot extend Suffrage equally tc Adopted and to Xa
:ive Citizens, and that it did not apportion the Rep?
utation of the State equally on the basis of its Pop?
ulation. To all these the ready answer is, that
they could have been legally corrected at any time
lIiu People chose, by a simple resolution of those
Friendly to a chance to vote for no Members of
Congress, State Officers, &c. who were not favor?
able to such change. This would very soon bring
it about,?however averse a rotten borough major?
ity in the Legislature might be. In all this, we
lssume the reality of the grievances complained of.
[ri most of the States these or similar exist or have
jxisted, yet who has thought of the Dorr modt? ol
ibating them? Jn Virginia at this moment the
suffrage is based on Property and the Representa
ion mere unequal than that complained of in
Hhode Island. In North Carolina, none but a
reeholder may vote for Senator. In these States
Lioco-Focoism has the full legal power to establish
Squal Representation and Universal Suffrage.?
Why do not they claim its attention and its sym
latbies ? There the work is easy without anarchy
jr violence. So in Vermont, tho disparity of Rep?
resentation is vastly greater than that complained
if in Rhode Islawd?a township with twenty vot?
ers having one Representative, while one with six
)t nine hundred has no more. Here itoperate-; in
avor of the Loco-Focos, who are stronger in the
;tnall towns than the large ones. Why do they
10t start a revolution in Vermont? It is most ob?
vious lhar, the evils complained of in Rhode Island,
ldmitting their reality, could have been prornpti)
ind surely corrected by adopting the legally form
id Constitution and then taking the proper steps
lo amend and change rt. That Constitution more
Lhan doubled the legal voters of the State. Why
uot secure so much, including tho power to take
more? Tho answer is clear: The leader j in the
Dorr movement and their sympathisers abroad had
other and dearer objects than that of securing a
Popular Constitution.
The document which the Dot-rites proclaim to
be the rightful and subsisting Constitution of
Rhode Island originated in a wholly irresponsible
and irregular cull of a Slate. Convention by men
who had never possessed political power; the
Convention was chosen at an Election wholly un?
authorized by law and unattended, uncountenanced
by any legal authority ; it assembled w ithout legal
authority, framed a Constitution without author?
ity, submitted it to the People of its own motion,
admitted every resident to vote, held Elections to
ratify it, and, when no more People would come
and vote for it sent round and took their ballots.
In ibis way, the authorities of the State never recog?
nizing nor taking any part in the movement, it w as
declared to be adapted by a majority of the Pew
pie?that is, of the mule citizens over twenty-one
?of Rhode Island, and as such proclaimed the
fundamental law of the State.
Now the first question which arises is not whe?
ther this is a proper arid suitable Constitution, but
?Is it a Constitution at all I Can the Govern?
ment of a State be marie or overturned in this
way ? If it can, then it is most obvious that all Con?
stitutions, all Naturalization or Suffrage Laws, are
the merest farce and waste-paper. We talk of
our Constitutions securing to the People this, or
forbidding that, but wc might as well talk of the
West w ind of this morning securing a quick pas?
sage to the Vessel which sails for England or
China. Our City dignitaries, especially our ex?
ceedingly Democratic Mayor, are wont to talk
loudly of the City Charter, to protest against as?
serted infractions of it, and to claim and exercise
powers (horrible to relate!) even under the old
Royal Charter of 1730! But if the Dorr doctrine
be sound, a Mass Meeting in tho Park might annul
both Charters at a breath, and by procuring the
assent of a majority of the residents over twenty'
one, adopt any substitute they pleased. In ?ite
way the City might be separated from the State,
as was urged by Jeadinr, Loco-Focos in 1839. and
set up for herself. We used to think Nullifica?
tion rather ultra, but South Carolina Nullification
never came within a great distance of Dorrism.
Let r.s illustrate the whole matter by the case
of the Naturalization Laws. All know that ar
immigrant to our country from abroad must have
resided with us five years and fulfilled certain
other conditions, before he can become a citizen
or voter of tho United States. But what a farce
is all this, if Dorrism be sound doctrine ! How
easily may the aliens?many of whom doubtless
feel aggrieved by the exclusion?hold a conven?
tion, form a new Coustitution abolishing all Natu?
ralization, and, obtaining a popular majority ol
votes for it, including their oven, declare the re?
striction utterly at an end ! But can this be
sound ? Can it be that the Right of Suffrage may
lawfully, constitutionally be extended to aliens and
minors by their own votes, not only without the
concurrence of but in open defiance to the existing
Government and to the majority of those in whom
it vests political power? We entreat for this
problem the earnest consideration of those citi
xeos friendly to a Government of Constitutions a?d
Laws who have been drawn into the support of
Dorrism.

Correspondence of Tt.e Trbcne.
rctlakd Co., Vl, Srp'- JO, 134?.
To the Editsr.t of The Tribune :
We flauer ourselves that Vermont has a<rain
j done her duty ; and, this time, aider embaiass
; meats of no ordinary magnitude. We have hand
[ somely beaten both the Loco-Foeo parties. The
Whu.5 of Vermont are not to be subdued, either
in open neld-fi?ht, or by stratagem and trickery.
( They remain faithful to the best interests oflhetr
. Sute. and jealous of her fair renown.
.Messrs. Editors. I am particularly prow? of the
' victory we have just achieved. It is fairly the
; key-stone in ottr triumphal arch. Never, since
: the present division of parties in this State ori?
ginated, have our opponents been so confident ot
J success, or so utterly unscrupulous in the means
: they have adopted to attain it. It is to their arts
. that we owe the existence of the ' Liberly Party
'. in Vermont?or rather; to -peak more correctly,
! the late liberty party, for its results are exactly
commensurate with the insignificance of its be
; gining. They (the Loco-Focos,) hoped, at:d ex?
pected, to profit by sowing dissensions among tho
Whigs; and this is just the length arid breadth of
their sympathy for the Abolitionists, or their
cause. Well knowing that the doctrines of Free
Ttade and Anti-Protection have no foothold in
Vermont, they have r*it hesitated, with the most
consummate hypocrisy, in the face of the contem?
poraneous action of the party in Congress whom
they support, in the face of the declarations of the
radical Burke, and the uniform votes azains! Piu
tection of the whole New-Hampshire Delegation,
and in the face of the fact that but one Loco-Fi>co
Delegate in the House, from New-England, voted
for a Protective Tariff, they have not hesitated, I
say. to proclaim themselves the most thotougl.-go
ing Protectionists. Well knowing that there is
not a Tyler-man in the State, they Lave endeavored
to fasten the responsibility of the acts of the Ex?
ecutive upon the Whigs. Their party poper? have
absolutely over-flowed with the vilest personal
abuse of Col. Paine, and others, among the most
honorable and respectable citizens of the State,
and these vehicles of slander have been multiplied
arid scattered abroad with the greatest profusion.
Against these appropriate weapons of a bad cause
the Whigs have opposed the consistencyof political
integrity und the firmness of honest principle. And
what has been the result. ? Deraagoguisra has got a
blow this time which it will probably take it upon
itself to remember. Tho soil of Vermont is not
adapted to foster political humbaggi v.
Uur most excellent Governor, Charles Paine,
is reflected triumphantly; and, this time, by the
People themselves. An able and faithful public
servant, the People have stamped the 'broad
seal' of their approbation upon him. Last year
the majority against him was 1350; this year,
contending ugainsi opponents most active and un?
scrupulous, against the odious imputations of Ty
leri.sm, and against every species of political jug?
glery, we have given him not less than 2000 major?
ity. The Whigs of Vermont have been true to
themselves, and to their Country, and all they ask
of New-1!oik is to 'go and do likewise.' "Yours.
The Seneca Treaty.
The National Intelligencer contains the treaty
concluded with 53 chiefs and headmen of the
Seneca tribe of Indians, on the 20th of May, 1312,
by the Hon. Ambrose Spencer tin behalf of the U
States, at Buffalo Creek. It met the approbation
of the Senate of the Unitesl States, on the 24th
August, and became a luw by sanction of the Pre?
sident on the 26th.
It annuls the treaty of 1833. made by Thomas
Ludlow of Now York, and Joseph Fellows of
Geneva, as assignees of Massachusetts. The new
treaty stipulates that the Indians shall continue in
the occupation and enjpyroentof two tracts of land,
known as the Cattaraugus and Alleghany Reserva?
tions, with the same right and title they possessed
before the indenture. Messrs. Ogden and Fellows
reserve to themselves the ri^ht of preemption,
only; except what individual rights they held, be?
fore tho indenture. The Chiefs of the Scnecas
graut and confirm to Messrs. Ogden and Fellows,
al! the right of the nation to the Buffalo Creek and
Tonne wane1 a Reservations.
The four tracts of Innd known as tlie Buffalo
Creek Reservation, containing 49,92(1 acres, the
Cnttaraugus Reservation, containing 21,680 ncres,
the Alleghany. 30,469, and tbe Tor.newunda, 12,
:jn0, are estimated at $100.00(1 and the improve?
ments at $102,000. The value of the two reser?
vations granted to Messrs. Ogdrn and Fellows, is
to be estimated und paid accordingly. A clause
in the treaty promises that the parties will solicit
:he Government of the United &:ates, to use its
influence to protect the Senecosin their ''reserved
rights," from ayy taxes, assessments for roads or
other purposes, until they shall have relinquished
all titles to the lands.
New Orleans.?The fever is increasing.
There were thirty-eight deaths by it during the

epidemic."

Norwich, Cu Sept 13,1342.
Messrs. Editors: You are probably aware of
the fact that the A. B. C. F. M. hold their annual
meeting this year in this city. I had the
pleasure of being one of a large number of pas?
sengers on board the steamboat Worcester last
evening, whose object was be present at thjsfmeet
ing; tvhich is usually more interesting than any
other of our religious anniversaries. Among tbe
number were many clergymen who were desirous
of hearing from the Rev. Dr. Seudder (for23 years
past Missionary to Ceylon and Madras) some ac?
count of his labors, &c. among the heathen. The
Captain very kindly had the after-cabin prepared,
and ail who wished had an opportunity of listening
for nearly an hour to Dr. Scudder's interesting
communications. This afternoon the meeting w as
organized in Rev Mr. Bond's Church. Chancel?
lor Frelinghuysen was in the Chair. Prayer was
offered by Rev. Dr. Nou, for more than 60 years
Pastor of the Church in the adjoining town of
Franklin, and a brother of Dr. Nott of Union Col?
lege. The minutes cf last year were read and ap?
proved, after which Rev. Dr. Armstrong read let?
ters from several distinguished individuals, mem?
bers of the Board, who could not attend. Tbe
Treasurer's Report was then read, from which it
appears that the receipts for the year ending 31st
July have been $318.396 53; expenditures during
the same period. $319.036 92, in which amount is
included a debt, owing last annivnrsary. of about
$57,000. The Annual Sermon is to be preached

i IVew-Jeraey Convention ? SOOO Whig* in
Council ? \omianti?n of Henry Clay.
Correspondence of the Trihune.
Trenton. September 14. 1s42.
Messrs. Editors?The New-Jersey Mass Core
vention is trely cite of the ; old Coon' kind oi
18-10. The Sovereign People are hero in theit
glory, from ail portions of the State. Every Count*
in the State is represented bv immense Deleja
! tions. The number reported by citizens of th?
I town is from 8,000 to 10.U00, exceeding the Tip
' pecatioe Gathering in 1S40. Notwithstanding th*
stJrm, the procession, four abreast, extended above
two miles. Rely upon it. New-Jersey is tcidt
atcake for 'Henri Clay and Home Industry.
The People of our State are for supporting Amt r
i<-an Interests, and will triumphantly sustain their
noble champion in 1344.
The Convention organized by electing General
Wm. Frick, of Burlington. President, and a large
number of Vice Presidents and Secretaries. The
Resolutions reported by the Committee arc of the
right .-tamp, and were adopted by acclamation.
At the Domination of Henry Clay, three times
three were given for ??Harry of the West." No
nomination was made for the Vice Presidency,
although a Urge majority of the Convention ex?
pressed the preference of New Jersey for "? hon?
est John Davis."' The question was deferred fot
the present.
The unanimous determination of the Convent'"on
for Henry Clay was most decidedly indie; ted
by the rejection of the list resolution of the ( om
niittee, recognizing a National Convention. Th s
was lost by acclamation. The Whigs of Ne.v
Jersey maintain that a National Conventit n for
the Presidency is unnecessary.
Put down New-Jersey certain for Henry Cr. vv
and a Protective Tariff, by a majority of 3,000.

cumstanccs. He was engaged at Willow street
wharf in working on a vessel, when he heard a
splash in tho dock and the scream of a child.?
Looking down he saw something struggling in the
water along side of a boat. In a moment he was
in the water and swimming to the spot, where be
found a little boy just sinking; grasping him with
one band he swam toward the wharf, tbe top of
which (the tide being high) be easily laid hold of.
A man came to his call for assistance, and dragged
the lad our. of tbe water, when to their astonish?
ment, another boy was found clinging to the legs
of the first. Both were safely landed, and after
much exertion, both were resuscitated, although
the second boy was nearly gone. Great praise is
due to Mr. Brown for his promptitude in coming
to their aid. [Phil. U. S. Gat.
