Snch a gathering of tlie bone and sinciv of
of thecountry, thc pure enlightened andmor
al citizens, never na, and'we fcar ncter will
be again ascmbled in our nob'e little state.
II was indee1 a Zhty uPrisine f ,I,e B,crn
and higli souled patriotism of the Vcrmoiitese,
to prepare tobattle with tho mercenary t dcs
potic frfction who for laclve long jears havc
ruled us wilh a rod of iron, and conTertrd the
go'ernmont into an cngine of party. It was
trucly a glad sight to bchold this hcart-thrill-ing
manifcstation ofthe pure and lofty cpirit
of a people who hare ncrcr burct inccnse on
tlippolhited altnr of loco-focoifm, and the
firm rcsohe which bcarncd from cvery cye,
that thc star nhich has ncrer sct chould iu
crcac in briliiaucy, ns it east its beams upon
thc bead ofthe great statcsman of Kentuck
cy. The bcst judgcs corapiited the ruulti
tudes asscmbled at from 15 to 20 thousand,
and een more. Heaven blcse the men ho
come by legions nhcn their country calls.
There wcre cridrntly scveral thousand more
than in 1810. A thousand at lcast hailcd from
the state of New York eviucing cven more
than Green Mountain enthusiasm in thc
grrat Whig causc, and tlirred up to thc last
drop oflbcir Mood to nchicvc amost glorious
lictory orer tho rulc and ruin party in the
Xumcrous dclcgations had arrired thc even
ing precediug the appointcd day. 1,500 landcd
at oncc from thc "White llall boat. But
tlianlo to the self-sacrtficing Burlingtonians,
tho latcli striugs tvere a!l out, and werc nev
erdrawn by any good Whig wilhout a cheer
ing welcome. Mo.it nobly did thcy redcem
the pledge of freo aud hearty hospitality
which they hnd profctsed and most dceply
should thc whigs of Vermont fcel the obliga
tions they are uudcr to a high-souled peoplc,
who have twice so libcrally aud patriotically
cntcrtaincd thetn. Wben the houses ofthe
citizens becanie literally crammed.they open
cd their churchcs to a party, whose causehas
crcr becn ideulified wiihthosehighprinciples
of virtne, morahty and religion, which have
evcr provcd the strongcst pillars in the rcpub
licau tcmple. But thc inultitudcs ulio had
arrieJ were far outnumbcred by tho;c
who appeared on tho day ofthc Convention.
As long lines of wbigs approachcd they were
wclcomcd by the cheers of the thousauiU al-
j ready asscmhlcd, proclaiming their etroug de-
terinination to do their wholc duty in their
country's causc. The grand processiou
which was fonncd of 8 abreast was at lcast
two milcs in lenglh. With the aid of scveral
bauds of niusic from diflereut sections of the
State, the processiou marched from the Court
Uousc square to College 6treet, thence thro'
Collegc etreet, down Pcarl street to thel'ark
"hich could hardly conMin the ihrongin;
masses. During tha march numcrous gorge
ous hanners inseribcd with mottasstrikingly
significant ofthc policy and purposes of thc
Whig party.aad abcve all prolcclion, anti-an-ncralion,
and Clay and Fnlingltvytcn, lloat
ed prondly in the hrcezc. Al thc doors and
windows of the houses appeared the glowing
femaleyouth and beauty ofthe Green Moun
tains waving their while handkcrchicls, and
in rcturn rcceivcd rounds of huzzas from
the chivalry of the proccssion as itpass
ed. Iu front ofthe Imiversity the proccssion
pased under a gorgeous acd lofty arch of
cvergrceus, emhcllished vith flowers and in
seribcd in golden letters with "hail Ihe con
qucrors" crected by the high-spiritcd young
Wbigs of the institution to evince respect
for a party, or.c ofnliose uiaxims fully carricd
out cver has bcen, thatintclligence is ibe life
ofhberty. Tbcrewas in the procession a
h'jgc vehicle drawn by 8 yoke of oxen takcn
from the farm of tbo Ilon. Ezra .Mcach of
Shelburne, which was inade the medium of
convey'ng, besidcs the owner, sevcral other
sturdy whig farmers, who of all othcr men
cnn afibrd !o rejoicein thechecring prospccts
ofthe permanent succcs3 ofthe ivbig policy.
Auother vehicle was drawn by 4 while horscs,
upon which appeared a beautiful ship.in whose
pure white rigging sat twoladseach holding
a young coou. as w e were told, while tho old
one appeared on thc dcck gazing at hcr progcny
in their clevated station evidently with a fccl
ing of pleasing euthusiasm. It was a happy
omen. Tha vivid impressions which the
tout cnsanlle of this great whig galaday, the
splcndid banuers', the graccful flags, the
arousing notesof the b'ugles.the silvcr sounds
ofmusic, the waving kerchiefs. in the hands
of smiling lovclincss, and the glowing elo
qucnce ofthe speakers on the stand was such
ns nill ncvcr fade from the mcinorics of
those who witncssed the migbty pagcant. Of
the whigs, who thus came together, old Ad
dison may boast that "magna jiars fui."
They were more numerous thau any othcr,
counting probably 14 hundrcd, and from
their noble bearing would have obtained the
prize bauner had not nearly the n holc popu
lation from little Grand I;le cmbarkcd for
Burlington and took it by a coup de main.
Such is thc noble style iu which Vermont
has lead offin the campaign of 1844, which
is to secure the succcss ofthe glorious tickct
ofTered to the suffrages, composed of the
names of Clay and Frelinghuysen. All was
harmonv and unanimity in tbe ranks
of the party. Even the virtue of so
briety was not to ourknowledge in a single
instance violated bythem, nhich is ccrtainly
worthy of a paesing remark. as we now have
an opportunity of seeing, if drunk as Van
Buren said they were in 1840,they complete-

thcy will achievc in 1644, when they arc iu

Report to REDUCE thc Tarif.
Dec. 27, 1832, this committee brought
in a bill to REDUCE and otherwise al
jer the duties on imports, accompanied by
a report, in which thcy say :
The committee, in the bill herewith re-
'ported by them, have cndeavored to ar
range the duties with rcference to this
pnnciple (t. e. adapted to rcvtnue,) ni
rates from ten to twenty per cent, varying
from them chiefly in those instances where
national independence, in time of war,
sccmed to demand some sacrifice in pcacc
(as in the case of iron,) or when it wns
thought that a higher or lower rate of du
ty would be of advantage to the revenuc
without any individual injury, (as in rc
gard to distillcd spirits,) or when some
branch of industry might be materially
benefitted by LOW imposts on some of
its RAW MATERIALS.Rrport
No. 14, 2rf jS. Con.pagea.
In adjusting the scveral duties, they
have penerally conformed, tinlcss some
Tazing Tca and Coffte.
They also propose to fix a moderate
specific duty, equal to about 20 per cent
! on the value upon TEAS, and also upon
COFFEE, which werc made duty free
