In General Taylor's letter to Hon. Joseph R.
Ingersoll, alluding to the statement Mr. Inger
soll hid made In Congress, that "Gen. Taylor
was a Whig, not Indeed an ultra partisan Whig,
but a Whig in principle,' Gen. Taylor says ex
"All of which i entieelv connrxT: and

In his letter to Dr. Dromon he again says if
he could have voted at the lt Presidential elec

In his letter to Col. .Mitchell, he says:
" I have no hesitation in staling, as I have
tested on former occasions, that I urn a Whig,
tho not an ultra one ; and that toir no desire

Wo comply with Mr. Everett's request, and
tho first comment wc desire to mike may be
found in the following judicious and sensible
editorial remarks on the nomination of (Scneral
Tayi.ok, in tho Kline mtmtier of tire Windsor
Journal which cortains the above pronunciamenln
as Mr. Everett :

was one ol the largest of the kind ever asse milled. It

part of thn Union. The North had a lull representa

Thuswc hive placed before us the alternative if
i.cneiai i a vuin or l.encrm i,ass. i ms alternative
may possibly be changed ; but while it remains as it
is, our course, our duty is clear wc shall support the
nomination ol (tenernl Taylor. We cannot conceive
of a preatcrcalainily than ihe perpetuation of ttie pre
sent national administrative policy of James K. l'olk.
General Taylor is not a itcmaHoguc. He has exhi
bited no anxiety about the presidency , or the nomina
tion, lie has simply told the people that lie was a
Whirr, and that if efected. be should do the best be
couldthat he should endeaovor to respect the will of
the people, as expressed UiroUj.li tneir represeiiiauves
in Congress. He has expressed himself as hostile to
the spiut of conquest, und though an old soldier.be
entered into the Mexican war with reluctance. The
rebuke he gave to the jmlicyof the administration, in
creating ihe Mexican war, as contained in his con
fidential letter toau old intimate friend, Gen. Gaines,
drew down upon him a vote of censure by a Locofoco
House ol Itcpresentotiyes in the Inst Congress. Per
sonalty, Gen. Taylor is popular, nml so long as the
main isue lies between linn and (Jen. Cass, wc shall
give him our support, nod so, vfe confidently believe
will a great majority of the American people.
Mr. Everett resides in Windsor, and this re
spouse of the very journal which ho lias chosen"
to be the first to announce his forthcoming
" reason-1," might, perhaps, be deemed suflicient.
Rut wo do not choose so to regard it. Mr. Ev
erett has been a prominent member of the Whig
Party in Vermont, and been repeatedly honored
with their confidence and support. Ills term of

one, though it has never been pretended, that

representatives in Congress need have-but little

scrutiny at home. If lie assumes to represent

, he chose to consider discourteous treatment of

a moment, without, at the nine time, censuring
tho remainder of the Delegation, in whose fide!
ity to Whig Principles, patiiotism, and sound
judgment and discretion, wo have a confidence
that Mr. Everett can in no respect disturb.

respectfully irai and hear them.
Nothing can bo plainer than that it was the '
duty of Mr. Everett cither to decline taking n (
seat In the Convention ; or to abide by its dcci- i
sion, regularly and Jairly made. Any other rule
of conduct would render the Convention a farce,
and its members ridiculous ! Mr. Everett per
fectly understood this. His own experience of
tlio benefit resulting from tills view of rights and
obligations as applied to popular Conventions,
has taught him its truth. Hy taking neither of
the alternatives suggested, therefore, ho aban
doned his own duty and the dignity and estab
lished nnd wholesome usages of tho Whig Par
ty. He voluntarily retired from among Ins col
leagues, refusing to execute the trust committ
ed jointly to him and to them.
We repeat t!iat it is wholly impossible, in such
circumstances, that Mr. hvcrett can assign
reasons " for the course he thus thought prop
er to pursue that shall amount to an excuse.
He can be poiscsscd of no facts in tho case that
wcro not equally in thn knowledge of his col
leagues, and of the Whig3of Vermont and the
Union. There Ins been no sort of pretence
that tho nomination of Gen. Taylor was not
made fairly, honorably, regularly without strat
agem or in'rigue, and by the simple preponder
ance of votes cist for him by whigs from all
sections of the Countrj. As it is well and tru
ly suggested by the Windsor Journal, every
District in tlio I- ree States was- fully represent
ed in the Convention, while several of tho Slave
States were not represented, and were allowed
no voice in the matter. Hut Mr. Everett's un
changed and honorable adherence to Mr.
Clav, during the whole balloting, forecloses him
from objecting to Gen. Tavlou on the ground
that ho is a Southern man or a Slaveholder.
Mr. Clav is both. That General Tavloii is
Whig, his own repeated and frank declarations
and the declarations of tho soundest and truest.
hearted Whigs in tlio Union, leave us no
to djubt or deny. He has avowed his emphatic
preference, for the person and tlio principles of
IIesiiv Clav himself, in the presidential otlice
a fact that, one would suppose, might save him
from tho " uncompromising hostility " of so un
compromising Clay Whig" as Mr. Everett!

Hon. Mr. Foot, the other Delegate at Large,

Tavloii, A correspondent ol the Hollows Fulls i
dinette, writing from Philadelphia, (and, if we
correctly judge, a. more ardent and devoted
friend of Hu.tr.v Clav never lived,) says :
" Zaciiaky Taylor is a Whiff in nrincinlc is in

to be a curse to the country, and de-ires Us extermin
ationand is opposed to the furthcrcxtcnsiouofSlavc

our sah-ty and prosperity, can for a moment hesitate
to nenve ms uuty calls Hun to give liuiiliis ardent unit
That this is essentially true, wo have the tes
timony of many of tho most eminent and un
yielding Whigs of the Union, who arc person-
ally acquainted with Gen. Tavlor, and who

, .,..,,. . - . .
that he will admiinslor the Uovernnient in strict

In such a
view of tho cao, ran it be that any Vermont
Whig can hesitate between Tavlou and C's.s,
a man who superadd-, to his ultra HtinkerUin on
the subject of War, Conquest, Interference in
tho affairs of other nations, Internal Improve
ments, the Tariff, the Currency, a complete and
perfect subserviency to the demands of the pro
slavery section of Ids Party? We believe nut.

TIIE HOSTON COUHIEH.
It is well known that the venerable Mr.
Buckingham, the able and resolute editor of tho
Huston Courier, was ono of the most, if not the
most unyielding of tho opponents of tlio nomi
nation of General Tavlor. Old Hunkcrism,
since the nomination, lias been deriving great
comfort from the inference it drew therefrom,
that tho course of the Courier would bo factious
and injurious to the harmony of the Whigs of
Massachusetts. Nothing is less likely to be the
case. The Courier has uttered no word against
the nominee of the Whig Party, in whoso ranks
it lias long done yeoman's service, and is about
the last paper in tlio Union that will take coun
sel of its resentments, and do any thing cither to
hazard the triumph of Whig Principles, or to
iHcrcie the chances of the election of tint re
markable doughface, Mr. Jsicis Cass of Michi
gan. Wo find in its last number letters from
" J. H. 11." well known to bo the son of tho
EJitor and a sound and judicious Whig writ
ten from Piiiladclphia, and cut from them the
following significant extracts. Tho narrow
question, staled at thcconclusion of tke second
extract, will settle the coflee of the Old Hunker
sUvo propagandist, a3 well as unite the energies
and the efforts of all true Whigs :
The candidate is not from the free stales. Hut
rcaliy I do not see how-much better we should l wnh
Gen. Scott ih.m with Gen Taylor. It seems tone
that tho-e who con e id for Scott os against Tavlor
on the ground that the former is Irom a tree State imd
the tatter trout a slave State, have no better plea than
availability, und ore os weuk in -ir aruunicnts as
ibose who say U y will not co.iu"r -p "v C,r VVhi ,
parly who would adopt him. There is no doubt ot
the ll'higgcryol General Taylor, ond it is-almost a
quibble to make the neglect tu profess particulur sen
indents ihe reasons for rejecting him'.
