The Common Council of New York got hand
somely taken in by interfering with the elec
tioneering tour nr Gen. Cass and " suite" homo
wards. Alderman Franklin (Whig) knocked
Cass into a "cocked bat" by saying to him,
when he welcomed him to tho city, that the
Common Council did not receive him as a " Par

home." Tills stvle or address " ombarassed"
the Nashville-letter gentleman, as he had proba.
bly calculated on a partisan rcccplion, by the
"manifest destiny" Hunkers by whom he had
been nominated at llaltimore. He therefore
made poor work at a speech, being at a loss for
anything but parly topics to talk about. Allen
of Ohio, I Initston, Foot, and others of his "suite,"
however, were troubled by no delicacy on the
occasion. Allen said :
" It could hardly be expected on nn ocasion like
this,nud so liprepared us he was, ilmt he could make
a speech lilted to the leelmgs of the Democracy, if ho
linil thus come furicard to honor their candidate for

Proviso, culling it an Important Slate paper
worthy ol "rave consideration, wo ventured the

to Gen. Cass' views.
Our neighbor winced a little at the time, but
eavon was working, and since the noinm.i -

doubts have vanished.

June 10th 1813.
The address to tho people of Massachu
setts, inviting all who nre " opposed to tho
nomination of Cass nnd Taylor" lo meet at
Worcester on tho 28th inst., which tho
Sentinel parades with such startling solem
nity before its' fenders this morning, and
which it desires to have understood is en
dorsed tl'fe' lioslonCouricr, (misrepresent
ing that paper as saying that " it 1ms
been extensively circulated throughout tho
State,") is a vory shallow devico. Tho
Courier prints it by request, without U xcord
of comment, nnd there is not the signature
of ;i live man " undersigned" to it. It is a
poor "filius millius ;" illegitimate, unac
knowledgcd, untrue both in statement nnd
logic, and is probably 'the production of
some remarkably cunning Old Hunker!
The liaston Courier, which has been tho
stoutest opponent of Gen. Taylor in New
England, turns tho " cold shoulder " upon
this missile, ingeniously contrived to aid
tho sinking cause of Lewis Cass. When
that paper takes a course that will tend to
increaso tho chances of electing a North
ern doughfucu who boldly proclaims that
ho will, if elected, VETO any legislation
by Congress for the preservation of FitnE
dom ix ran Termtoriks of this Union, tho
Sentinel may let us know it ! And when
the honest old patriot, Taylor, tho regular
nominee of tho Whig Convention, is " re
pudiated by the Whigs of Massachusetts,"
as the Sentinel, with the drcadfullest ver
dancy of fruitless Ijapc, appears to r.xpcct,
wo will give our rctiders timely notice.

Tho Philadelphia United Stales Gazette gives
a stirrinir account of the nroccedlnn-sririho tint.
Ideation Convention, held in that City on Friday '
evening last, after tho nomination of Taylor .
and Fillmoiii:. It was the largest assemblage 1
ever known in Philadelphia, nnd was character
ized by harmony, union enthusiasm," every '
thing for tho caue." Tho following noble Res
olutions wero tiii itiiinously, and with acclatna
tions, adopted :
1. Resolved. That the Whin of il.e Itn!i..,l ami.
here assembled by their Representatives, henrtily rat. ,
ily the nominations ol (Sen. ZACIIAIIY TAYLOR I
as President, ond MI I, I, Alt I) FIl.LMOItl; as Vice 1
President of the United Stales, ond pledge, themselves 1
to their support.
S. Resolved, That In the choice of General Tay
lor as the Whig candidate for President, we ore glad
to discover sympathy with n gtent popular sentiment
throughout the nation n sentiment which, having its
its origin in admiration of great military success, '
has been strengthened by the development, in every '
action ond eveiy word, of sound conservative opiu-1
ions, ond true fidelity to the great examples of former
days ; and to the principles of the Constitution OS ad- !
ministered by its roundels.
3. Resolved, That Gcncnil Taylor, In saying that, '
had he voted in 1314, lie would have voted the Whig
ticket, gives us the nssuronce (and no belter is need
ed Irom a consistent nnd truth speaking man) that
ins neuri was wuu us ni uie crisis 01 our poiiticnl lies
tiny, when IIcxry Clay was our cnndiilate.nnd when
not only Whig principles were well defined ami clear-
ly asserted, but Whig measures depended on success.
The heart that was with us then is with us note, nnd
we have a soldier's word of honor, nnd a lile of public
and private virtue, as the security.
4. Resolved, That we look to (Sen. Taylor's ndinin
istrntion of the Government os one conducive ol l'ence,
Prosperity, ond Union. Of Peace liecnue no one
better knows, or has greater reason to deplore what
he has seen sadly on the field of victory, the horrors
of war, and cs;eeially ol a Ibreign ond nggresiive
war. (If Prtmi'eritij now more than ever needed to
relieve the notion from a burthen ol debt, and to re-1
siore inuusiry agricultural, manufacturing, mm com

natural and artificial, embrace the whole Union, ren
ders the protection of the interests of tlic whole coun
try his first trust, and whose varied duties in past lile
have been rendered, not on the soil, or under the Hag
ot any State or section, but over the wide frontier, and
under the broad banner of the Notion.
5. Resolved, that standing os the Illiig party does,
on the broad and firm platform or the Constitution,
braced up by all its inviolable ond sacred guarantees
nnd compromists, and cherished in the nfiections be
cause protective ol Ihe interests ol the people, we ore
proud to have as the exponent of our opinions, the one
who is nledned to construe it bv the wise and irencrous
rules which Washington applied to it, and who has
said (and tlo Whigdesires any olherassiirancc) that
he will make Washington 's administration the model
or his own.
C. Resolved, That os Whigs ond Americans, wc
are proud to acknowledge our gratitude for the greot
military services which, beginning ut Palo Alto, and
ending at Deuna Vista, first nwokened the American
people 10 a just estimate 01 mm w no is now our v lug
candidate. In the discharge of a painful duty for
his march into llie enemy's country was a reluctant
one ; in the command ot regulars at one time, and of
volunteers at another, and of both combined; ill llie
decisive thouch punctual discipline of his comn where
all respected ond beloved him ; in the negotiation or
lenns lor a aejecieu nuu uesperuie enemy ; m ine
exiacnev or actual conflict when the balance was per
ilously doubtful, we have found him llie same, brave,
distinguished and considerate, no heartless spectator

niness ; and we do not know which to admire most,
his heroism in withstaudiug the assaults of the cnmy
in the almost hopeless field of liuena Vista mourn
ing in generous sorrow over the graves of Ringgold,
of Cloy or of Harding, or iu giving in the heat of
battle terms of inereitul capitulation to a vanquished
foe at Monterey, and not being ashamed to avow that
he did it 10 snare women und children, he nless infan
cy, and more helpless age, ogniust whom 110 Ameri
can soldier ever wars. Such 0 military man whose
triumphs are neither remote nor doubtful, whose vir
tues these trials have tested, wc are proud to make
Resolved, That in support ofsuch a nomination
we nsk our Whig Iriends throughout the nalion to
unite, nnd to co-oncrnte zealously, resolutely; with
earnestness in behalf of our candidate, whom calumny
cannot reach, nnd with respectful demeanor to our
adversaries, whose candidotes have yel to prove their
claims on Ihe gratitude ol the nation.
Many eloquent speeches were made by dele
gates from the various parts of the Union, all
breathing one spirit of attachment for the Whig
Causo and tho Country, and of determined
opposition to the further Extension of I'olk
Measures and Policy by means of Iwis Cass
A. P. I.ymas Esq., of llenningtnn,the Delegate
to tho Nominating Convention, from the First
District, addressed the immense concourse, and
amid hearty cheers for the indomitable Whigs
of the Green .Mountains, whose "star has never

ETOtir readers will find, on our first norm a
, very charming little poem by Gen. Butler, tho
nuiiKer candidate for ice President, entitled
"The IJoat Horn." The gallant General is
undeniably, a very popular than, wherever he i
known, on account of his attractive personal
qualities. There is a great deal of beauty and
sweetnoss in the poem we havo quoted, and it
i evinces the possession ol those rare personal ex

but a slim majority ! Such a man and such a
poet deserves a better fato than to bo sent adrift
in the crazy craft of Len is Cass. He has, em

Now if tho Scnliml don't admit that tho abovcl
