Subject In the decision of llic Whig National Con
vcnlion, Tlio WMs Niitloiinl t.'omciitlon.
This body, comprising the Representatives nr
iho grand Whig Parly of tlic Union, will ascin
hie in Philadelphia, on Weilnc-day next. Tlieir
action is anticipated willi deep interest and nnx
lety, for upon it are suspended morn iinpoitant
issue?, vc think, than hae ever before hcen
presented to the People. Upon whom the choice
of the Convention will fall, to sustain the Whig
banner in the approaching political canvas, is
a question that is on oery man's lip-". The
answer varies Willi the preferences, or tiie sup
posed information, of those who mikoit. lTpon
one point, we are gl id to lie able to say, the
wishes and the determination of the Whig ale
harmonious and united; and that is ihr inipnr
Inner, of stamping the jmpular disapprobation
Ihr leading measures ami Ihr policy if Ihr Admin
istration if Mr. I'vlk, which, iti now well un
derstood, would ho fully sustained and carried
out by C-cn. Cas, in t lie eeul of his election.
This, then, in the present National exigency,
is the great substantive i-stic to lie decided:
whether the people will sanction the principles
of aggressive war, of territorial cxten-ioii and
acquisition by means of war, of open inhrfrrincc
in the all'airs of other nations by this Covern
ment, which have strongly marked the charac
ter, and instigated the loading measures of the
present Adiniui-tr.ition ; or whether, looking to
the counsels and examples o( AsiiiM!Tu.N,thoy
will determine that such principles do .not un
derlie- the true policy and the true pro-perity of
our Republican Government, but are hostile
to its genius and ifangeroiis to its perpetuity.
Other important issues, are unquestionably to
be determined by the result of the approaching
contest. These are, the cxtou-ion of domestic
Slavery over Territory in which Congress lias
supreme legislative authority; the reasonable
protection of Homo Industry ;lhe management
of the National 1'in.inccs and Domain; Uiver
and Harbor improvements for the promotion of
the interests of internal Commerce and Trade,
itc. issues that have heretofore, uiuio partic
ularly, divided the two principal political par-
ties of tlio country, and that, by very general
consent, arc to bo settled not so much by refer
ence to tlio Constitutional power of Congicss, as
by considerations of public policy.
In addition, therefore, to the ordinary and
well-delined issues between the Whig and Loco
foco parties, tlio administration ol President
Polk has presented to tlio country a greater one.
which renders tlio defeat of Mr. Cass an object
of the lery first importance, and the strongest

2. How do you really like Lewis Cass, after
Col. Crocker nl" ritclihurgli.
In an article giving an account of the open
ing of the Che-hire Itailroadto Kcenc, the Hos-
Ion Mail pajsthe subjoined well-deserved trili-
ute to the indomitable energy, perseverance and
clear-sighted sagacity of Col. Ai.vaii Crocker,
the projector and Jinis'icr of the l-'itcliburgli
liailroad. Col. Ckockix certainly achieved a
most gratifying, as well as creditable, triumph
over the vaunted business penetration, as well as
the iiicreduloiiness, of the very clever llosto
nians, by carrying forw.nd that enterprise to
complete and extraordinary success, in spite of
all tho "cold words and colder looks" which he
was doomed to encounter. The process by
which the l'ltrhbiirgh Railroad project reached
the point iv hero it could safely be started, sis wc
have heard it eloquently and truly related, was
one which had many resemblances to tlio spec
tacle which is said to bo regarded with especial
sympathy by the gods : "a good man bravely
struggling with adversity !" Few men would
have borne the jeers and ridicule of opponents,
and the more disheartening dissuasions, remon
strances and dubious assistance of friends, so
patiently, so perseveringly, and to well, as Col.
Col. CiicK KEit did. It was an instance of the
sustaining force there is in well-considered, cool
and sincere convictions. The Colonel "knew he
was right," and nothing could prevent his "go
ing ahead !" Wo have known another Rail
road project that was compelled, for a period, to
sue ami plead for favors it ought to have mm
ni'indcd; but this was nothing to the dismal
night the Norway night that preceded the
day that finally broke upon the I'itchburg enter
prise of Colonel Cno KF.n. Why, dear reader,
we have it from the Colonel's own lip, tint
when tho "Committee" who were charged vv itli
the care and nursing of his feeble Filchburg
binlliug, in its d.tjs of neglected infancy, were
holding their imiiiI meetings in some retired
apartment," away from bu-iiicss and the toils of
men," to hcar11's reports of " painful progress,"
and to listen to his words of confidence and en
couragement, they used to sit in iicinrl-.tosavc
tiie expense of lamp oil! We could not help
thinking this a romantic exaggeration of the
Colonel but be that as it may, the oflices of
the ritchburgli Company were certainly not
then, as now, where iiicrcnants.mostdo congre
gate, amid the granite pillars and "sounding
corridors" of the Mi:i:ciiant'sKxciiamc.
Tim follow ing is what tho Mail savs :
In this connection we cnimnt forego n desire to show
wh.it llic. oiitt-riri-i- iml perseverance of one man can
m I"? accompli-lum-nt of these mighty results.
I11-11 Lol. Alvali Crocker lirst started the idtaol'n

The Hon. JAcon Coixamf-b, tlio Representa

District in this State has obligingly furnished us
with the following brief address to his constit
uents, published in the National Intilligcnccr,
of the 31st ult., from which they, as well as our
readers, will learn with regret, that he declines
being considered a candidate for re-election to
the post in Congress he has filled during the
p 1st 1 years, with eminent faithfulness nnd abil
ity. Judgo Coi.i.AJti:u's services in Congress
have been neither few nor inefficient. He has
contributed bis full share, both on Committees
and in debate, to sustain tho honor and dignity
of tlio State, the high-standing for sound and
statesman-like attainments which has been con
ceded to her delegation, and tho somewhat re

The time is near when it is your practice to

form you that I desire you no longer to regard

In takincr leave of von as constituents, I de

Gratefully do I remember that I have been your

I regret thatsiich manifestations of regard could
not have been returned by mo with services
more successful j hut my duties have been per
formed at an inauspicious period and in a nolit-
ical minority. All I can say is, I have endeav

Though you mav not have been gratified with
lustre shed upon you by the brilliancy of your

er lelt himself sustained by a consciousness tli.it
ho represented an intelligent, conservative,

Cuss' Cliirngo Letter.
Wc proposcd.to-day, to give, with a short pro
liminary history, tho little Letter of Lewis Cass
to the Chicago Internal Improvement Conven
tion, last summer. Hut we find in the last Koch
ester (N. .) Daily American, our purpose so
fully anticipated, and so much better executed
than we could hope to execute it, that we give
the American's article in full. Six columns for
Slavery, and six lines for Internal Improvement !
If this is tlio road to the Presidency of this Un

nt the city of Chicauo, composed of many thousmd
persons, collected from nearly every Hto'e in llie Un

ever met on llie soil ol this country. Nor was it ini-po-.iu

Tho above is tho chorus of a capital political
song that was sung in 1811, and tho neatness
and justness of the compliment to the lato dis
'tinguislied Mr. Wr.tr.iiT, doubtless gave it no in
considerable fillet in that fatuous campaign.
Now we don't very often trouble ourselves to
hunt up good things for our opponents; but Iho
old Hunkers aro in such straightened circum
stances in cnnscipicnco of the open defection of
tlio ll.iriiburncrs, in New York, among whom
Mr. WniaiiT was so great a favorite, that wo
hav'nt the heart to resist suggesting to them a
point of rcmurhuhle nsemblance between him
ami Mr. Cass, their candidate for President
The point is that both tlieir names aio right with
out the first letter a coincidence so extraor
dinary that wo aro ipiito certain that it will in
spire the hearts of our Hunker friends with re
newed confidence, while it will tend to strike us
poor Whigs with dismay ! Hut wo can't help
it. Wo believe in looking at things as they are,
and oven if we desired It, wc have no hopothat
so striking a similarity between tlio names of
Wright and Cuss could long escape the pene

The Sentinel is entirety at liberty to make any
use of our discovery it pleases, and, wo trust
its imaginative editor will weave a nice song Tor
the campaign to givo wide currency to tbo for

in slavery ; and now again, as if the South had not
vet enough, they will probably nominate still another
lor the same olfiee. All this might be well enough
tor them, but we believe it hardly corresponds with
the desires of many Vermont Whig much less with
the anti-slavery lliunder winch the lice 1'iess and
Watchman have stolen lately from the Liberty Par
ty. We anticipate some extraordinary exhibitions in
lofty tumbling alter llie news of tin- lMnladilplua nom
ination has gone forth. Some choice expressions of
sentiment have fo-uid utterance in the whig papers
which they will probably not altogether reh-h alter
the tran-fer ol alleclions, ciiiluiiasiu,aiid other uten
sils of pohtind wotlare whithis soon to take place.
I IV shall allude to these things again after the nomi
nation, l'elhapswe shall be obliged to leinind the
Free J'icm ol some of its can-less .Ur lar.itions on po
litical men nnd tlieir fituis-lur the favor of the peo
ple. Daily Sentinel.
Wc implore the Sentinel not to lose a mo
ment's necessary sleep on our account. It will
need it all before it succeeds in cramming
Isicis Cass down the tluoats of Virmonlcrs !
If (ien. Tavlou (who is not by any means our
choice for the Piesidcncy) should receive the
fair nomination of the Whig National Conven
tion, wc shall give him our humble support.
The Sentinel will fail to find its hopes of the
election of Lncis Cuss, tho man who has
H.LTiGnu himself to VKTO any act for the pre
servation of J'recdoin in the National Territo
ries, augmenttd by any dissensions in the Whig
ranks fomented by this paper, lletwecit (Vs

between Washington and jfenedict Arnold.

w ithotit a question of its comtitutional power to
do so, has declared that he should NOT inter
pose the executive veto to defeat the will of
Congress. This is the mighty and world-wide
dill'ercucc between the men !
The Sentinel's perpetual twaddle about "slave
holders" is altogether unworthy a reply, in it
self : and, coming ftom a paper that has had
nothing hut slaveholders for candidates for tho
Presidency, wilii one exception, for the last
twenty years, It is too small for contempt. That
paper will be good enough to observe that we
have never proposed to ili-franchise the citizens
of tlit sl.ivcholding States, by taking the absurd
ground that slaveholders are not eligiblo to of
fice. Wo have never aimed to bewi-er than
tho Constitution, or to establish tests which that
instrument repudiates. It is not whether a can
didate is a slaveholder or not, but what bis opin
ions ami piinciples arc in relation to Slavery,
and especially ilsfurthtrexluision, that governs
our oppo-ition to him. 11i:m:y Ci.ay, who is
our favorite candidate fur the presidency, not
only regards slavery itself as a grievous evil
and wrong, but is oppo-td to its exten-ioti over
Territory now fice. (Ien. Tayi.uk lias avotved
his prefeienco for Mr. Ci.ay, and declared that
he should have voted for him at tbo last elec
tion if he had voted at all, and thus aided to pre
vent the annexation of Texas and tlio l'ru-Sla-very
war with Mexico. Between Mich a man,
and a miserable Northern doughface, like Lew
is Cass, who has sold himself to the propaga
tion of Slavery, and nothing else, and who de
clares it to bo ixtovsTiTfTiiiVAi. to attempt to
exclude that " institution" from onr l'rco Terri
tory, wo have no more hesitation in choosing
than wo should have between Christianity and
paganism ! There is nut a Liberty l'arty man
in tho wholo North, who, if tho alternative wcro
presented tn him, would not far sooner vote for
Mm C. Calhoun than Isicis Cass a man who
is at onco a traitor in ins insuui is, ins cuuca-iaj

to io into all manner oi spasms over our in
consistency, when it finds us supporting for the

to l'ower to nullify any Legislation by Congress
to prevent the increase of Slave Teiritory, and
w ho ucciares no can inui no iiuiuuruy in mo
Constitution of this Republic for such legisla
tion. It does not "correspond witli tho desire"
of any Vermont Whig to support such a man as
this; though if they aro over brought to llie ne
cessity of choosing between lira such men, we
trust they may not find their choice among tlio
ritr.E.Mux ot the .Muitii ami in a iimii vvnoso
, servility and toadji-in, for ollice, must render
him contemptible in the ryes of the very "slave-
lealers" who buiiidit him.
Before tho Sentinel makes an extra fool of it
self, therefore, in rejoicing over Whig inconsis
tency, it will be wise, at least, to show that (Jen.
Tav'i.oii, (should ho receive tho nomination of
Iho WhigNation.il Convention which we re
gard as by no means so certain as that paper
seems to imagine) is something a greatjileal
worse than a Slaveholder, as its own candidate,
Idtwis fuss, most certainly is.
WKDNIMDAY HVIJNING, JUM! 7, 18 11.
Celt. Cuss' letter ol' Acceptance.
The Hunker nominee for the Presidency, has
written a long letter signifying Ids acceptance
of the llaltimoro nomination. It Is a tolerably
well-written document, but in tlio poorest possi
ble taste. What do our readers think, for In
stance, of the following specimen of self-laudation
" Receiving my firt nnpointinent from that pure
pitiiot and great ox-pounder of American democracy,
.Mr. .tclleisnn.tnore than duty years ngn, Ihe inter
vening period ol my life linn been nhno-i wholly pas
sed in the seivit-eof my country, nnd has been mark-
en ny many Yin-"iiNu,iiiiu nuclide, I with many try
ingciicuurslanccs, both in peoce nnd war."
This sounds very much like tho glorification
of its candidate by a partisan paper, and was no
more eallulfor, under tho circumstances, than
it would be in reply to an invitation to dinner 1
A tolerably modest man might infir that it was
with a full knowledge and appreciation of the
meritorious circumstances in his history that he
takes pains to set fortli himelf, that the Con
vention nominated him. If it wcro not on ac
count of his supposed services to his country
that ho was nominated, wo should like to know
uhnt else! Wc conclude the pointed allusion
to tlio " vicissitudes" and "trying circumstanc
es," in "peace," to which the (Ien. alludes,
must have reference to his late unfortunate en
counter in tlio Senate with Mr. WriisTrn. At
all events, a very general tymjuithy was excited
by it in Ins behalf!
Hut, again, tlio letter says :
" I have carefully rend the resolutions of the Dem
ocratic National Convention, laving down tiie hint-
form of our political taitli, nnd 1 ndlierc tu them ns
linnly, ns t approve them cordially."
Now two of those resolutions (the whole ol
which ought to have appeared in the Sentinel
long ago) aro as follows :
2. Tint the constitution does not confer upon the
general government the power to commence anil car
ry on a general system ol internal improvements.
7. That Coni'rets has no nower under the constitti
lion to interfere with or control the domestic institu
tions of the several States, nnd that such States nretlie
sole and proper judges of ever) thing appertaining to
their own allairs, not prohibited by the constitution j
tint nil clliirts ot the abolitionists or others made to
induce Congress to interh.iii: with oChsTin.Ns of
si.Avr.nv, on to takf. i.ncii u.nt steis in relation
Tiirr.i.'ro, arc calculated to lead to the most nlarming
and dangerous consequences ; nnd that all such cf
lorts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the hap
piness of the H-ople, nnd endanger the stability and
permanency ol the Union, nnd ought not to be coun
tenanced by any Irieiid of our political institutions.
If, therefore, the Gen. "received his appoint-
tmut" from Jr.rrEr.s-oN, so many years ago, ho
j certainly forgot to get his principles from that
" great expounder of American Democracy."
j JKtrr.itsox gave his sanction to appropriations
by the General Government for works of Inter
j rial Improvement ; and was a potent advocate of
the oidinauco of '87, which " interfered with
j questions of Slavery, and took incipient slept in
nlalion ihenlo," in a tolerably ell'ectual man
ner, as tlio rKEnriiiM and rr.osrcr.iTY of the
North West Territory nobly testifies ! IfJsr
rcr.sox, a Stallholder, felt impelled to oppose
the introduction of Slavery into the Territories
of tbo Union, witli w hat scorn would ho look
upon a citizen of a 1'rce Stale who should pledge
himself to if( any act of Congress having that
samo humane and honorable object in view 1
If he had conferred his principles instead of his
" appointments" on Northern doughfaces, Mr.
Cass might have something to brag of!
Rut once more:
No party, gentlemen, had ever higher motives for
' exertion, thanlu.s ihe great democratic parly of the
1 l'llited Stales. IPitll all abi 'ing coulidence in the
rectitude ol our principles, with an un-hak.-ii reliance
i upon the energy and wisdom of niiblie oniuion. nnd
with tin-success which has crowned the adiiiinistra-
,,m ot me government, when committed to its keep-
'i1-- '"J"' ,ias 1,ml so committed daring more than
thrcc.fourttis ol its existence,) what has been done, is
ui once tne rewar.ioi pan exertion and the motive
for future, nnd at the same time, a guaruntce for the
accomplishment of what we have to do."
1 hat sit! Under the prostituted namo of
" democracy," says Mr. Cass substantially, we
have about extinguished tlio nationality of one
neighboring Kcpnblic, and annexed a goodly
portion of its territory to our Union, and now,
just elect tne and we will swallow tho remain
der, and take Yucatan, Cuba, Jamaica, &c. &c,
as " nuts and wine" afteronr republican dinner!
This will bo "the accomplishment of what we
one . io. ' " Manifest destiny" has a mon
strous appetite !
The (Ien. calls us Whigs old Alexander Ham
ilton fdiralirls, according to the approved style
of modern " democracy," and solemnly says of
the Wing l'arty :
" The doubt he Hamilton entertained nnd taught
of the capacity of a man for self-government, has ex
cried a marked iiillueiiee upon its action and opinions.
Here is the very stalling point of the ditlereiKe lie-
tween llie two great parlies vvliicli divide our cojii-
This is very imposing, and, coming from a
man who illustrates his confidence in ' the ca
pacity of man for self-government" by lolun
leering his scnices to promote the uulimitid ex
tension if Slaiery, is, on the whole, rather sub
lime ! ! We find nothing superior to this in the
whole letter, excepting, perhaps, the grave an
nouncement of its self-denying author that he
will on no terms consent to serve his anxious
country a Second Term.

The N. Y. Express of Saturday evening con

U quite tho rcienc of tho news ire obtained at

liino tho news of tho appointment of a .Siihti'ii
Undent of Hinbarlatian at Vera Cruz, a strong
indication that l'eaco was regarded as almost
certain in Washington !
Tlio following is tlio Despatch in tho J'or
H.vi.TiMoitn, Juno 2.
" Tho IMitors of tho Charleston (S. C.) Eve
ning News have sent on a telegraphic despatch,
stating that tho steamer I'dith lias arrived at
New Orleans, front Vera Cruz, brings the
grntifijina intelligence of the llatHcalion if the
Treaty of I'eace tcilh Mexico, beyond all doubt
flj At Ihe risk of making the Scnliiul " sick
at its stomach," wo present a few more extracts
from "democratic" papers, tending to show how
cordial is the- detestation of the servility and
venality of Mr. Lewis Cass, among a very re
spectable portion of Its party. Wo know the
.Sentinel feels a sensitive horror of such things,
and would scratch its eyes out (like the "man
in onr town" who " was so wondrous wise")
before it would take advantage of any such
"ridiculous" and "disgusting" dissensions in
tho Whig ranks; but then our readers have a
right, as they doubtless feel a natural curiosity,
to sec what Mr. Cass's political friends think and
say of him.
The likelihood that the two divisions of the
Locofoco party in the Free States (there aro
Rarnbiirners in Vermont, gentle reader, and In
other States of tho Union besides New York)
will finally coalesce and harmonize on the nom
ination, is getting " small by degrees, and beau
tifully less." Tho (iVouc, (Barnburner Loco)
There nre bets makim? in Albany that fien. Cass
will nut carry a majority in any one county in New
York, lieforc thirty days have elap-ed there will be
bets olfered that there is not a state mllie Union that
will enst her electoral vote for Cass."
This is rash! If Cass don't get tlio voto of
Texas, it will bo a piece of Ihe blackest ingrat
itude. Ho has evinced a far stronger love and
sympathy for that miscellaneous State than he
ever did for his own, and has shown that he
would prefer that every Michigan vessel that
threads its way among tlio shoals of Lake Sf
Clair, should goto the bottom, rather than that
Texas should be curtailed of a single slave right
or bo deprived of a single slave market! He
must carry Texas.
