ubtam tln sjiiclionof tliu Why frcaninii of the l)is
tnet to your nomination. With regard lo llio ccncral
duli. s of a Heprcscntaiivc, 1 hold that, t!toit;li elec
ts 1 by n Pfltict, he is an officer of the nation, nnd
consoii'tcmly i not bound, or indeed nt liberty, to
sacrifice tho cencrnl goo 1 of tho whole, or tho richls
of any scciion of our common country, lo promote,
tho imcrcsteof his own. Ho is however to consider
himsilf ai spcci illy charged uith the guardianship of
iho interests of that portion, which he more particu
tally reprcnenlt, and is lliorcforo bound lo mako him
self intimately neqinimeit with those intcies!.", nnd to
defend an I promote them tollia utmost extent, which
is consistent with the rivhls nnd the prosperity of tho
other portions. From this docttino follows almost
as a. nceersiry corollary, that the riqht of instruction,
U tlia tent lowlpchil is chimed in certain ccctionn
of the t'uioii, can hate no existence, nnd I ajrcn with
the great body of the Whigs of tho North in r ii'idial-
iitj thn prcti iidid rich t, as well for thi, as for sonic
other reasons. Tho Constitution of Vermont, I am
aware, declaics tint iho people have n lllit to instruct
thtir representative)", but if this clause have any ap
plication erecpl in regard to the members of our do-
mcs ie legislature, it is inoperative, both because no
mode hasbcenpointidoutfjra3"ert.iining thosensoof
lha people and conveying the instructions, and I ecausj
it .s r?p'i!!iiant to the 'pint of the constitirion of tho U.
fjtate', from w Inch nlone buih I Innscs uf Congress de
rive thtir anilioiity. IS'rithtr is it in my judgment, the
true thory of our (iovcrnment, that nil men arobolh
c.iti;iecnt and prtpartd to decide upon all questions,
iv limit mii within tho cojuuanco of the national le
gislature. The founders of the American Union held,!
not only that all men are born free and independent,
but tin! they are endued with an intuitive perception
of their natural and social ri?ht, and therefore, that
they arc competent to prescribe both tho form of their
ovcrnment and the principles upon which it shall be
exercised, as well ns to select lliosa who shall Irjcii-
tnsiul with its administration. And hy mailing all
freem. n dibble to all offices, without limitation of
bit tli. cstite, condition, or profesjion, the doctrine is
hipli.d, that all ratimal tn -n nre natural!' comne-
ttnl to th idi'diargi of the duties of every official sta-
tian. Hut it is not presumed, that all men ate lire-
jtartd to deci I j on all tho complex nnd ever varying
questions, upon tne rilit determination of which the
icec'sful administration of govrnmrnt depends.
There is a large class of riilijects. and nn c.xtensivo
rsngeof qiiasiions, involving the general good of the
nation, which can not always be brouuht within the
reach of the great lodyof the freemen, nnd which
moreover cannot bs satisfactorily or fairly adjusted,
without such nn interchange of opinion, nnd frcfiucnt-
ly surh mutual concessions, between difl'erent parts
of theUrioa, as can only tain-place by personal com
miinraiion. The only practicable mode of accom
pliMnngthisis obviously by rrferring these subjects
toiieiegaiesirom every section of the nation, to whom
the final power of disposing of ihcm is entrusted, and
these arc precisely the questions, which, by our con
slit Mioii, form the legitimate tn1 jecls ofCongrcsnon-
at action. Hut though the representative is to this nr.
tsnt independent of Ins constituents, he is bound to
treat llieir deliberate opinions upon nil subjects, so far
at these can bo ascertained, with the inest usnret.
ful consideration, nnd it is not pethaps going too far
iu say tint upon local question", those opinions fchould
have r. controlling force with him. These then are
the gencrtl principles, upon which the action of 3 re
presentative of thepioplc should bo founded, but it
my I c a matter of greater present interest to you to
know moropatticu'arly my opinions on the general
policy which ought to be adopted by our roscrnment.
and cpen tho great questions, which have for some ,
jcirs been theptincipal tliauur of political diicussiou.
Tho most important subject, whHi (alls within
the proper jurisdiction of the national government, is
iho riguhuiun ofour foreign relations. The&'latisof
th American Union, it has been well said, owe their
poliiical cxi'lence to the principle of dissent and scpa
Mtion from the established forms of Ilnrnnran fior.
eminent and civil institutions, and this is especially
true of Xew Ungland, whoso rude climate and com
paratively barren soil were fdceted by that venerable
ban I of persecuted Englishmen, who fiist occuiied
them, nut as has been falsely rsid, because they wcro
thought to odl-r peculiar advantages for commerce
and agriculture, but with a provident
which foresaw, thai aregion less attractive to adven
turers than the inviting eouth was best fitted for the
dwelling place of men, who were fccking a new home
for the cake cf emancipation from the constraint of
form", and the restraints of political inst.lutior.s, which
they felt to he subversive of the rights cf conscience.
nnd inconsistent with the in!n rent political riMits of
man. It .9 to this principlo of dissent, that we owe
our most valuable institution, and we havo madetha
greatest improvenienls when wo havo deviated most
wultly tiiim Hie models and e landards of Europe.
Our community of origin, language arid law with tho
people of England exposes us to special danger from
tin grow in 01 i.nglili infiucnce, and iho law uf self
preservation demands, not only that we should not
in general imitate, but lliat in most poinis wc should
counteract, llio policy nf that aristocratic, grasping,
and selfish country. The nolicv of tho American
Government therefore ought with few exceptions to
be not merely diverse from, but antagoinstical to that
of the cabinets of Europe, nnd we have particular rea
son u 00 on our guaid against the movements o
l.nglaml, which aio obviously directed to the attain
ment of an universal controlling inllucticc, if not of
universal empire. At almost the same moment, she
iswsgingawnr with Chun for the support n'nl ex
tension 01 an unholy commerce, seizing upon new
territories in Indn, occupying new islands in thecqua
torial seas, and threatening the colonization of our
own North West coast. The last nnulish steamer
brings u-. intelligence of tho annexation to the Ilriiish
empire of the District of fc'cinde, a wealthy and popu
lous country on the Indus, and of tho plunder of its
treasury and capital, nnd the last arrival from tho Pa.
cifio.mnounCM that the colonization of. cw Zealand
tins mm luen folluwul by the forcible seizure of the
entire group of the Sandwich islands. These mena
cing measure o.ight not only to be me!, but resisted,
nnd though I nm not prepared to tny that tho time
has come for the military occupation of the territory
of Oregon by our llovcrnmeiit, yet wo ought nt least
to maimain.and tf necessary, to enforce, thedoclriiics
uf that famous niefsageof a former President, which
declared that the American continent was no longer
a field for Kuropean colonization. The most impor
tant point of collis.on bitwccn American nnd Euro
pean inlercHj is that nhieh involves the great ques
tion of governmental protection to domestic industry
in all its brnnehts, and ibis is one of the (cw points
in which w can hope to gain any thing by copving
from the polry of i uropeau powers. I!ut even herej
though the means lo be employed by us must resem
ble those which havo been adopted by England, yet
ibe principle e and motives ot action arc widely oilier
ent. England aims at iccuting a monopoly for her
self, w lids we nre content with carrj ing out the true
principles of protection nt home and fair comnctiti.m
broad. 1 see no probability that this end en l,a nl,.
lained by nymean., but by legislative action, which
shall b constant in principle, but varying in detail,
ccordmg to the changing policy of foreign govern
ments, the progressive growth and modif'uU charac
ter ofour own indiiitry, oml our ownwantu nnd
mcansof !uply. T'10 hope lias reecnil been bebl
out by one of ilia most eminent ol the statesmen of
New England, that a frr menmreof permanent pro
tection for these cardinal interests can be obtained by
diplomatic negotiation. The regulation ot dut;es int.
posed for revenue nlone, by a treaty between the ex
ecutive nnd a foreign cal met, seoms'nn encroachment
upon the proper duties of the moro popular branch of
the nntional legislature, but apart ironi this objection,
there seem to be inseparable objections in tho way of
accomplishing this plan. The institutionsof England
nie artificial nnd unnatural beyond any thin, . liic-lx
has ever exi.ted in any otb.r country, and so long os
those institutions subsist, I do not believe lliat any
reciprocal policy can bo conducive to the interests of
both nation. We ure encouraged to hope, that the
corn of die weit, nnd the sugar, the cotton, tho rice and
tho tobacco of the south may be admitted into Engluh
iort on such terms n lo make them highly profita
blcarliclts of cultivation nnd export, and that trealiet
may b. negotiated with other powers, which shall se
cure lo the lopping of the sea board employment in
the carrying trade. Hut for these ndvanlarev, it is ad
mitted lint wt must givt the only equivalent we hate
to ofl'er the admission namely of Ilritisb manufic
tur at mchtitei of duty ai the forei?n producer ctn
ttr.tJ is fty. JVw KnghmJ, Nw Yvil, md Pnn.

ricultural products In spare, nnd if the proposed tys.
tern is ndopted,ltio inter ,or of those slates Uhopotcss
lyaud irretrievably siciificed lo tho WcjI, llio South,
nnd Iho sivboard. I do not by these observations
mean to admit, that tlio prosperity of nny part of tho
I'nnn Is really to bo advanced by measures which
must ho fatal lo tho North. 0,1 tho contrary 1 havo
no doubt, thai tho true policy of protection for alt
branches of industry, whether those of aimplo pro
duction or of conversion, will bo found Indispensable
to tho best interests of every scciion of tlu Union,
while without lliat policy tho stains of tho North
mint soon sink to tho coaditiou of .Switzerland, Nor
way, arid nthcriiifcrlilu.mil mountainous countries of
Europe, which are frco indeed, but politically insignlfi-
cant, thinly populated, and 1100

hope that the gi eat question of the currency will be
stusLiciuiiiy m-jusicu uuriii!; 1110 tettn ot the present
administration, and I shall therefore forbear to dis
cuss ihe topic. Nevertheless, I think proper tosav,
lliat I concur w, h tlu wings of Vermont in believing,
that tho overwhelming embarrassments of our people
aroin a gicat incisure due lo tin; unauthorized inter
ference of the Government with the currency. I be
lieve it was apart of llio plan nf operations of tho ad
ministration of 1S23, to make the liankofthe United
.States a political engine, nnd that that institution
owes its downfall to its refusal to become Ino instru
ment of tho executive. I have no deposition to pal
hate what all men must hold to be indefensible, the
misconduct of the Hank after the government had dc
elared war upon it. but it U ,to ii, n.,i. . ....
tint until assailed by tho executive, it furnished "the
",UI"'-" "est currency wlucli was cvtr enjoyed
by a trading people. That u currency at once equally
sound and convenient will be provided by any of the
substitutes which havo been recommended I do not
expect, nor as I nave already intimaied.do I even hope
that the next congress will accomplish any thing val
iiallein the icstoraiioi, of the currency, though ' I
hold the providing of a circulating medium whether
metallic or representative to be not only clearly with
in the power, I ut among the most imperative of the
duties of Congress.
I shall now, Mr. I'rcH lent and gentlemen, ask your
111 Uilgenco for closing as I began, with alittlo ego

Mr. Aiiasisi, CliAiriiiiin of tho committee
on resolutions, reported tho following
winch wcru rend, discussed and ndopted.
Hoolttd That freedom is nian'i natural birth
right, Iho gift of Cod lo all his creatures, of which no
0110 can ho deprived except for violations of thi-sj law 3
which foenro tho well being of the community.
Iltwlvcd Thnt civil government basils foundation
in the duty nf all to protect each an I every ono in the
peifuct enjoyment uf bis riiihtHof pction and proper
ty, and when this object it not attained, cither tho
constitution is defective or llio laws nre corrupt.
licsohcd That so far ns tin eviU of slavery are
countenanced by the Constitution it is our duty lo
submit until in a fair and constitutional way wo can
provide a remedy. So fir ai 1111 v of tho .States of this
Union have sanctioned slavery, though we miy doprc
cato the fact, wo clntm no rujht to interfere. Hut
vvhib vyn render lo others all thu riglils to which they
nre entitled by the Constitution wo claim the same
measure or, lights for ourselves and will not submit
to nny deprivation of litem como whence they may.
Ihsohcd Tint .Slavery Is unmixed evil without
any thing to cxtenu.ito or justify it, subjecting the
weak lo tho oppression of llio strong, nnd corrupting
the master ns well as the slave. At Whigs wo desire
that freedom should bo secured to every being within
the protection of tho government and protest npainst
any thing and every thing that tend lo encrcaso the
burdens which by the coinpromi-o of tho cjnslitution
are cast upon our race
, Itesoltcd That wc deprecate llic extension of poli
tical power, resung on tho basis of a slave population
ns nn act of hostility to the. north, destructive nf nn
tional prosperity, inconsistent with tint equality of
ii.im ivnieii siiouiu exist iiciw'cen 1110 nuicreui mem
bers of llio Union and striking out the security for the
continuance ofour republican institutions.
Ilesohtd That wc regard the proposed admission
of Toxns into ibis Union ns a direct violation of the
rights of lliepeoplo of tliefree states, as now secured
by thn constitution. It is the introduction of a power
into the constitution in opposition lo the powers ves
ted under it and may well be regarded ns a praclical
dissolution nt the band of tho Union which binds us
together. We will neither barter our rights ns free
men nor consent to bo deprived of them and will hold
incm ns e.ie hues who tna to t he nltenint.
llcsolced That the protection of industry is one of
tne ursi duties 01 government, one ot tlio leaning ob
jects for repnl licnn institutions now founded. That
protection isnnool'tho elements of national wealth,
nnd thai without it thcie can be 110 pei uiancnt pros
peri'y. llcsolced That the north have a vital interest in
this great question, for without it, our fields must be
come barren.or our hardy population labor for naught.
Take away protection and you strike down the arm
that is bared for the prosperity of tho nntion. Wc
go for protection as a right, we demand it as one of
the objects of finvtrnmcnt we demand it as a means
of national prosperity wc demand it ns tho prico of
those contributions wu have so liberally paid into the
treasury of the nation.
llesoltcd That the doctrines of free trade are in
Iho present stnlo of our foreign commerce entirely
fallacious, they nre but arguments in disguise to bring
down the fieo lal or of the north to the level of the
paup:r labor of Europe and llio slaves uf tho South
and they who willingly adopt litem richly merit the
deprivations they produce.
Ilcsolted That 111 order to obtain the fullest mea
sure of protection the nation requires a tariff so adjust
ed thai thu duties may be equal to the current expenses
of the Government, and so nrrnnged by discrimina
tion as lo givo a preference in market to all the arti
cles or our own growth nnd manufacture.
lesolrcd That n healthy state of our domestic
nfinirs requires that the incisures for protection should
bo prepared with such firmness thnt all nny confide
in iheir contininnce. There can bo but little activity
in business until the people can have confidence in
the steadiness of public measures.

Convention, reported tho nnnio of JOHN
PECK, as Delegate, and SAMUEL W.

THE SANDWICH ISLANDS.
Wo fully concur in the following article.
Tho seistiro of these islands was a most fla
gitious and barefaced outrage, which no Gov
ernment, less insolent than that of Great Bri
tain, would ever have dared to perpetrate.
On tin" night previous to iho cession of the Sand
wich Islands, while tho city of Honolulu lay evposcd
to tho guns of the liril'sh fngite, and tho authorities
ol' t.io islands were di liberating what to tin in the
e-.treniily to which thev vviro driven, the Km le
qucstcd ihe nttemtancoof the American and French

the joint protection of those powers, nnd ri-k the ire
of Lord I'aulel nnd his (iovcrnment, if the residents
would assuro him of the support nf their respective

PI11DAV HORNING, JUNU 10,1813.
Wo announced, in a tiostscrint. last week
that tho Convention which mot hero last
Ihursday had nominated tho Hon. Gt:onar.
I'. lUAnsit ol this town as tho Whig candi-
elatc to renrcsent this Dlsirire in it
Congress. Wo this week spread before our
renders, in extenso. tho nroceedinrrs nf tlin
Convention. These proceedings were char
acterised by groat harmony and good feeling,
and tho nomination of tlio Committee) was
confirmed, by a per capita vote of the whole
body of Delegates, with cntiro tinnnimitv
Though several of tho towns, in the moro re
mote parts of tho district, -cro not repre
sented, yet as a whole, tho convention wa
one of tho most respectable, that wo over at
tendee! on any similar occasion. Mn. Marsh
may therefore be retrarded as thn first rltniro
of the Whig freemen of tho District. And
whet her wo regard Ins position in tho pen
graphical centre of the district ; his age, in
tho very bloom and vigor of lifej and the
palmy stato of Ins intellectual ii5nful
tho soundness of his political principles and
ins ability to defend them : or his hih npr-
sonal character, his unimpeachable intei'iitv.
and tho acknowledged purity of his life, we
nave no hesitation in saying that tlio choico
of the Convention was tho most fortunate-
and judicious that could possibly havo been
made. 1 n savins' tlns.wo of course mean nn
disparagement to tho other candidate
They wore all good men, and good Whigs.
limy Had all rendered tho nartv valnahh-
and important services, and. wu havo nn
doubt, they will all cheerfully support tho
genueman wiio lias received the nomination.
In regard to tho qualifications of .Mn.
Mahsh for tho office fur which hu has been
nominated, we havo yet to meet the first
man who questions them. Even bis political
enemies acknowledge his preeminent abili
ties, and the commanding weight of his per
sonal character. For a full exposition of his
political opinions we refer our readers to his
speech, a correct report of which will bu
found among tho proceedings of the Con
vention. On the two great questions of tho
Aiioi.mo.v or si.Avr.nv and i'uotixtio.n to
American i.Aiton his sentiments will meet a
cordial respose in tho breast of every true
son of New England. Whilo his views nn
tho subject of thu currency and tho doctrine
ol instructions will also bo fmind to bo in
unison with those of the great body of North
ern Whins. Uut tlio speech rerniires nn
w i i -
comments. It will speak for itself, and tlm
crowded stale ofour columns admonishes us
to bo Inief. In conclusion, therefore, wc
say, from tho spirit of harmonv and union
which animated tho members of tho Con
vention, wo can havo no doubt that Mn.
ahsii will bo triumphantlv cloctcd-nnd, in
tho event of his election, we shall havo a
Representative of whom not only Vermont,
but New England may be proud.
THE OLD BAY STATE.
Tho Whigs of Old Massachusetts held a
State convention at Worcester, on Wednes
day, tho 7tb i list- to noniinata Slate officers
lur the ensuing political year. Gov. Davis
was renominated with groat unanniity, hut
declined. 1 ho Hon. Guoncc N. Unices
of Pittsficld, was then nominated for Gov.
eruor, bo having received 700 out of tho
ir.Q votes which were cast. Mr. Briggshas
been a representative in Congress for the
last twelve years from the Beikshiro Dis
trict, and lias long been known throntiliout
New England, ns ono of tho most vigilant,
industrious, and faithful members of tho
Massachusetts Delegation. Tho Boston
Atlas speaks of him as follows. Tho first
part of the paragraph, wo can endotso from
our own personal knowledco of tho man.
"His honesty and sincerity of purpose
his lulelity to Ins duties, both public and
private, havo never been questioned, even
by his political opponents, while his private
virtues havo won lnm tho lovo and esteem of
a host of personal friends. On all tho great
questions of moral and philanthropic icform
lio has taken an active part hut moderation
candor, forbearance and perfect fairness
towards thoso who differed from him in their
views, havo over been most conspicuous in
his wholu course. Thojo who know him
best havo ever most highly esteemed him,
both in public nnd privalu life. Six times
has ho been elected to Congress by his im
mediate neighbors, among whom ho has al
ways lived, and it is a reniarkablo fact, that
although Berkshire has most generally given
Locofoco majorities for both candidatos,Mr.
Briggs has never onco failed to roccivo a
majority of tho votes of that county. As
was well said by Hon. Abbott Lawrence, at
tho Convention, Mr. Briggs lias been pre
eminently the architect of his own fortunes.
In early lifu tho labor of hia own hands
eirned him lili daily bread, nd tlnco thonj
ho has ever distinguished himself hy his do -
volion lo thu cntno of American Labor.
Hois thu best candidate that could havo been
selected, sinco our Into most cstimnblo Cliiof
Magislrnto is nut of tho question, nnd he
will be clcctul."
Tho Hon. Joii.V Runt), of Yarmouth.
was nominated at tho samo time for Lieut.
Governor. For t tec nty four years Mr.
Reed has been known as tho " faithful Rep
resentative from Cape Cod."
says of him. "His labors and his services
:,. u.ne r r ri .
in behalf of our commerce, of our fisheries.
ami of nil our interests on tho seaboard,
havo ntadu his name for a quarter of a cen
tury an object of regard and respect to all.
Tho claims of tho hills of Berkshire and the
sands of Barnstable the extreme East and
the farthest West havo been both regarded
at tho Worcester Convention. Tho PEO
PLE next November will solemnly ratifv
tho contract of union at tho Ballot Box."
FOURTH OF JULY.
Tho anniversary of our National Inde
pendence will bo celebrated in this village by
tho Young Men of Chittenden County gene
rally, without respect to parly. Tlio exor
cises will consist of an Oration, reading of
tho Declaration of Independence, and Mu
sic. A National Salulo of 2G guns will bo!

of tho day, and bo escorted by the Burling

Hatch, and by such other Independent Com

bration. Arrangements will bo complninl
and a programme of tho exorcises of tliu day
win appear in tho next paper. A circular
will also be sent to gentlemen in tho various
towns who havo been appointed Marshalls.
