whig members voted to return this same man to
the Senate another term. This is a specimen of
the party that claims to have all the abolitionism ,
the temperance and decency of the nation in its
keeping. But after all there is a kind of harmony
in their conduct, for it is undoubtedly true, us it is
reported that Mr. Phelps stated in his explanation,
that it was a common thing for Senators and mem

candid whig, to every hater of slavery, profanity,

gone with this party long enough? Can you Hope
that it will be reformed, or that the country will
be saved from degradation and ruin so long as you
by your vote uphold such things?
An Appeal to Liberty Voters.
We wish to remind our readers, on whom is
conferred the important trust of the elective fran
chise, that they are about to be called upon to
supporter oppose very important principles with
their votes. It is not to ho expected that the votes
of any one or even all who will read this paper can
change the result of the coming election. That
whig electors will be chosen from this state cannot
reasonably be doubted. Of what importance, it
may ho( asked isit, that those who cannot vote for
Mr. Clay should vote at all? We think that there
are reasons of incalculable importance why all who
fear God and hate oppression should record their
testimony against the immoralities and corrup
tions of both the pro slavery parties.
Mr. Clay declared, what is manifestly true, that
neither of the great parties has any nim whatever
at emancipation; and the only way that any man
can show his opposition to shivery by his vote, is
to oppose both of these parties.
Both of these parties tire led on by practical ty
rants, whose moral characters of course are bad;
but who can charge Mr. Birney with an immoral
or ungentlcmanly act since he repented of his
slaveholding and became a christian? Moral and
christian men, of all sects, who arc not entirely
carried awav bv political excitement, regard him
a.s one of the most cappahle, devoted philanthro
pists and christians our country can boast of. Now

Mr. Polk, 1, because he is a slave holder, lives by
oppression, and does that to others which ha would
not that they should do unto him. Ho that will
oppress the poor will oppress the nation, w hen he
can. 2. Because ho is in .'Vor of the immediate
annexation of Texas, for the purpose of strength
ening the slave power, and of extending and per
petuating the unjust and cruel institution of slave
ry. A man that will do this must in his heart he
a tyrant, and will abuse power, when clothed
therewith. There is no safety in trusting the civ
il rights of the people to such a man. It is like
setting a fox to guard the geese; and I will not be
guilty of such fdly.
I cannot in conscience vote for Henry Clay. 1.
Because I believe he is destitute of all those mor
al qualifications, which the Bibb.- requires in a civ
il ruler. "He that ruleth over men must bo just,
ruling in the fear of God." Can a man be just,
who lives by oppression?
2. Because he is unable to govern his own vio
lent passions, and ready to shed blood. "lie that
hath no rule over his own spirit, is like a city that
is broken down and without walls." Civil rulers
arc designed to bo ministers of God to the people
for good, so that those, who do evil, have reason
to fear, for th -y should not bear the sword in vain :
for they arc the ministers of God. revengers to ox
ecute wrath upon him thatdoeth evil. See Rom.

while ho is guilty of the same himself?
3. Because he is a slaveholder, and has done
dolcgat'ons as would vote for Mr Birney. By which
whig contrivance, rhey elected a part of the dele
gates favorable to Mr Birney, and Mr Birney was
finally nominated by the democratic convention,
by one majority, under such combined influences;
and then the wings of Saginaw heralded the fact
to the four corners of the Union, as evidence of a
coalition of Birney and Polk, or Birney and the
The democratic central corresponding committee
of five, for Saginaw county on the 9th of October,
called another County Democratic Convention, to
meet on the 17th October, utterly repudiating Bir
ney and his nomination, by the coalition of whigs
mo democrats, cliarging nim wnn nemg uie great
enemy of their party, and having a desire to break
up both the whig and democratic parties.
Mr Birney supposed, as thousands of his friends
do, there was nothing inconsistent in his accepting
a nomination of his neighbors, without regard to
party, to accomplish a most necessary and import'
ant reform of abuses, which existed in that distant
and frontier county. But nothing was more re
mote from his mind, than to have accepted a nom
ination from either or both parties, in any sense
connecting liim with them or their objects, but
merely as an agent to redress grievances, without
regard to party. The whigs hove published and
asserted that here was evidence of crime. Alas!
they arc fathers of the crime. A nomination, De
mocratic in form, is procured by whig voles! Was
there any reason io doubt by Mr Birney (when he
read'tho first information of his nomination from
a wing) that it was the spontaneous act of the
people without regard to party? 13ut how wicked
for the whigs of Saginaw to aid in procuring his
nomination, and then proclaim it to the world as
ian act of base perlidy to the rights ot man.'

bly five times, without making a choice, Mr. Sta
cy, of Burlington, one of the most talented wnigs
in the House, presented the name of Gcorgo if.
Marsh, as a suitable man to represent Vermont,
and gave his reasons for opposing the election of
Mr. Phelps. He stated that he came to the place
intending to vote for the present incumbent, but
that evidence which was not denied and could not
be denied, was before that body and before the
world, that he had not performed the duties of his
oflu-e for the last six years, but he had neglected
them, and Ahamefully disgraced the state by his
immoralities. He did not deny but Mr. P. had tal
ents of a high order; but what are talents unless
directed to some good purpose? He intimated that
he had spent. a large share of his time in the grog
shops, in a condition which entirely unfitted him
for his duties in the Senate. He stated that when
the final vote on the tariff act, which has given us
a little relief from our embarrassments, was about
to be taken, Mr. Phelps was not in his place, or
in a condition to be there, but was sought out and
brought there by a committee, and that his vote, ob
tained in that way saved that bill. This is only a
specimen of a long speech which Mr. Stacy made
