The palsying spell is broken .' The Whig part}
of Now York rallies for the contest of .November
under (he banner which through long- years of
gloom Htid defeat it steadily upheld?which it bore
aloft in triumph when almost every other State
groveled at the footstool of despotic power ! The
State Central Committee has spoken, us will be
seen bul-iw, in accordance with ihe almost uiinni
mous opinion, the ardent wishes, tho irrepressi?
ble feelings id" the Whig? of New York.. The Ma?
nifesto, so far as it has spread, is every where
hailed with enthusi ism.
In buckling on their armor to battle once more
for their cheri.-hed principles?principles in aban?
doning which they would dishonor the name: the) i
hear?ihe Whigs of New York war upon no men i
or set of m"f.. They take no position, d" no act,
which will render it impracticable fur an;
who may have abandoned the Whig ground to re?
turn to it. Bul 11 toy take their stand openly on
the ground 'hut it is the Right of ihe People t<?
Jemand c restoration of the equable, adequate,
sound nnd bent Beel t Currency which they enji y
ed before the Veto of JfJ32, and that it is the DuTT
of the Government to comply with their just ro
rpiisitions. On such ground only can they triumph
usefully, or in defeat preserve their honor.
For weeks the Whigs have occupied the posi?
tion of an urrny exposed to the galling lire of an
embattled enemy, yet forbidden to return or repel
it. Such a position tiies the nerve of the steadiest
veterans; Our weaker brethren of Maine have
proved unequal to its maintenance. Warned by
their fhte, the Whigs of New York have resolved
to uvoid the peril by meeting it. 'Equal to either
fortune,' they prefer an open field und a manlv
combat to a position wherein endurance is the
only virtue which can be exhibited. Too long al?
ready have they stood under a tiro which thoy
were not permitted to return. The order?"Sor
fort Arms and Advance!" is hailed on even- i
side with bursls of heartfelt enthusiasm. The

Here is tho cull:
WHIG STATE CONVENTION.
To litvi IVhiji Elrrtom of ilie Mule of
An eventful crisis has occurred in our political
affairs. The individual elected to the second otlice
in the General Government, by the votes of the
Democratic Whig party, and by nn inscrutable dis?
pensation of Providence called to iiil the place for
which the lamented Harrison whs designed, is de?
clared by the Representatives in Congress of ojr
party, to have forfeited iheir confidence, and to have
?? voluntarily separated himself from those by whose
exertions nnd suffrages he was elevated to that office
through winch he has- reached his present exalted
station." lie is represented to have withdrawn his
confidence from his real friends in Congress, nnd ;
from the members of a Cabinet selected by bis prcde* '
eessir, approved by the unanimous voice of the Demo?
cratic Whigs of the Union, and invited by him lo con- 1
tiime bis chosen counsellors ; and lo huve trusted niiei
been guided by tho?e who huve been distinguished by j
n faithless opposition to every measure for which wc
have so long contended, and which have received ids
Wo are informed from the same source that he '
bus capriciously exercised that last remnant of kingly
power left in our Constitution, the Executive Veto,
against the undoubted expression of public opinion :
through the legislative body, and in violation of i.is
own previous assurances. And we now learn tl at ;
what may bo deemed the lirst step of conciliation
toward his and our political antagonists has been
taken by the appointment to one of die most impor?
tant posts in the Treasury Department, of a >io idod
adherent to Mr. Van Buren, und who, for that cause
only, had bul just been removed from the saute post.
Although much has been accomplished by our inde?
fatigable, zealous and patriotic Members of Congress,
by the passage of laws demanded equally by the ne?
cessities and tiie will of the Country; and an imli
cation has thus been given of what an Administration
of the Government conducted upon Whig principles
may accomplish . yet it is not to be disguised that,
under the circa instances already stated, we cannot
expect that cordial co op-ration between the Legis?
lative Departments, which is so essential to the suc?
cessful discharge of the duties devolving upon them.
In this emergency, the spirit of our institutions pro?
vides a means of relief, by nn appeal to the public '
sentiment. Tue great und glorious party which was :
composed of sO large a majority of the citizens of the ?
1 uion at the last contest, has important and patriotic
objects yet to accomplish. Its principles are identical
with those of the Fathers of the Republic, and are. a.
we religiously believe, essential to the continuance of
our free government, and lo the happiness u::i pros
perity of the People. Temporary disappointment
end transient misfortune can neither subdue cor dis?
pirit such a party. But to enable it to rally upon its
principles, there must be unity of object and concert
?1 action. These can be secured only by a full, free
and dispassionate interchange of opinion among its
members, and the determination vigorously and
unitedly to carry out and fully sustain the will of
the party. Representatives, fresh from the People,
will be able to communicate and concentrate public
opinion, and thus furnish ihe landmarks and guides
for future action.
For this purpose, the Central Executive State
Committee appointed by the last Whig State Con- ?
Ytiiuon, wuh iLs advice of ttiiny aisiinguhjhed po-1
litica! friends, invit? the several Counties of this Slate
to appoint as mar.y De!e?aies as they are entitled to
Members in the House of Assembly, to represent
them in a STATE CONVENTION to be held at
Syracuse on Wednesday, the 5th day of October
next, at 10 o'clock, A. M., to deliberate on the
condition of our public arTairs, and to adopt such
measures as may be deemed expedient to maintain
the integrity of iw Whig Party,?to rive success to
its principles and objects,?and to prevent a return
to power of those from whom the whole Country,
and this State ia particular, has suffered so much ,
and so lone.
J L. SCHOOLCRAFT,
Albany, Sept. l-.U. State Oatral Conunittee.
Project or a Fiscal Agent.?Tho la?t Ma
disonian contains a communication from " A
Member of ihe 27th Congress," proposing a new
Fiscal Ajc-nt. Its essential features are?1. Go- ;
vernment depositories in all the principal cities of
the Union : 2 A Receiver. Cashier, and Teller to
each, checking each other, appointed by the Pre?
sident and Senate, who may be suspended but net
n-moved without the consent of'he Senate : 3. Is?
sues of Certificates of Deposite or Treasury Note,
in sums ofnet less than twenty dollars : 4. Every j
ci'.izon entitled to deposite such sums as he chooses
in specie at any depository, and receive certificates
or notes therefor, payable at that place in specie j
on demand, and receivable for public dues in any j
part of the Union.
Such is the scheme ; and we can tell the author
?it once that it ran never receive the sanction of a ,
Whig Congress. It is fraught with immense
mischief! [n the first place, if it answered at all,
it would in time absorb most of the spevie in the
country and force the Banks into suspension or
out of substantive existence. (See 1'tofessor
Dew's Letter on the Sub-Treasury, ]?*'J ) In the
next piuce, it couid never furnish permanently a
Uniform National Currency. The Treasury N< tes
issued at St. Louis, and Galena would flow rapidly
to the seaboard ; here they would be crowded on
the Custom Ilo"?es to repletion,and then would fali
and fluctuatein value daily?the Government would
have piles of specie ?t fur in'nnd and inaccessible
points where it is not wanted, and nothing but
depreciated inconvertible Treasury Notes at the j
principal points of disbursement. Ail would be .
derangement and chaos, tending to ruin.
We have no doubt the author of this new scheme
of oppression is a Loco Foco. The MaJisonian J
wisely disclaims endorsing it. Wo wish all the
Columbusea in Finance now strutting their brief
h >ur at Washington, would understand that the
Fiscal Agent required by the country is a com?
mercial, not a politictil, one, and that it must act
in harmony with, n'ii hostility to, the solvent spe>
ci,-paying Banks of the country. This contri?
vance is but ene degree belter than the Sub-Trea- j
Th?. Beam is oor Brother's F.yf..?We
have often been provoked at the tone of insolence
and vulgar abuse with which the i:reat portion of
the Canadian Press always speaks of ihe Ameri?
can character and republican institutions; and still
oftencr have we felt deep leg ret ihm seen.-.- should
occur in our legislative halls and in various parts
of the country which furnish ground for these out?
pourings of provincial wrath. That we have occa?
sional mobs, R?>me of them of n most serious char?
acter and all most disgraceful to our people, and
?hat our members of Congress often gi-. c way to
passion and forget the courtesy belonging to their
station nnd the decency as well as dignity of gen
ilemcr, can neither be denied nor too deeply de?
plored; but to our neighbors who are so fund of)
exercising extreme vigilance over us. and who |
shout so loudly over every newly discovered stain !
upon our character, wo oiler the following extract
from the Kingston Herald of the 14th. We defy
. . . ? i
tbo utmost malice of Canadian jealousy to point
out any thing in our country equally disgraceful ? I
To the Montreal Herald. U. S. scavenger iu chief, j
wo would specially commend it:
During several of the late ajltr-dinncr tiUingt,
the House has hewn (to u-.e the mildest term) in a
most disorderly state: and it appeared to us that j
the whole object of certain Hon. members v..is to 1
make confusion, lo insult each other, und entirely
to break up ihe little sympathy and friendly feel?
ing that remain between ibem. What are we to
think of Hon. members of the United Parliament
of Canada telling each other on the floor of the
house, to "goto h?I." '* you be d?d." and in?
dulging in such lusty and gentlemanly expressions !
We say what will foreigners?what will our Re
publican neighbors think of us. when they me told j
that the Speaker of the Canadian Parliament has
been more than once insulted in his chair! und
that seme member* have uctunlly taken ihe;r seats
in the house in a beastly statu of intoxication !?
And th's, perhaps, may account for th-' boisterous
and outrageous conduct of somo certain Hon.
members. We must, however, in justice say,
thai the number of these worthies is not large.?
One nieht last week, er rather about two o'clock [
in ihe morning, a party ol the same class paraded
the streets singing, bawling, and d:siurliine the
rot of the inhabitants. Wc do not say that they
went so far as to deface sign-boards and tear down
w aier-sj-outs: but certain it is that many, suppos?
ing them to be a ganj of drunken boatmen, just
turned out t<> commit depredations upon the citv,
sallied forth to protect their properly, w hen lo!
ihe enemy proved t?< be representatives of the
people: ' _
DU* We have neglected to notice specially the
arrival in the Great Western of Hon. C. C. Cam
BBELSXG, former M. C. from this City, and Into
Embassodor to Russia. As our talented young
friend, John McKeon, hus as much business as he
can well turn his hand lo in another lucrative office,
w hy should he ti"t resign and give C. C. C a
ehar.ee for the scat ? One office a-piece till all are
served, is the fair thing; then double or treble if
thought best: but two fat places to one man, when
so many hunger ntid thirst after them more than
alter righteousness, is not according to our De>
, rm>cracy. We go against such 'monopolies.' Be?
sides, we should like, when the attempt to repeal j
the Bankrupt Law is made next winter, to have
; one Member in the House who would neither de- j
: scrt hi. post, dodge behind the pillars, nor vote 1
^ against the measure to kill it and change his vote
to the aSrmative when it had succeeded in spite
of him. Cambreleag is a bitter Loco-Foco, but
i wc sever caught him in such dirty tricks as these.

Scsbax Noises.?There is just one thing need?
ed to sink our City Councils into the lowest aby3s
of contempt?and that is to have them take fright
at the scurrility poured out upon them yesterday
by the Sunday press, and abandon the attempt
they have made to stop the crying and hawking
of n?w?papers on Sunday. Let them do this, and
our citizens wiii hardly trouble themselves to in?
quire what ordinances the Corporation shall enact
or meditate hereafter.
No man can honestly say that the hawking ot
Sunday papers is not a great nuisance in our city,
annoying alike :h?>se who desire to worship, and
those who would enjoy a quiet w alk, or even a day
of rest at home. For one day in seven the people
wish relief from the din of business and trat?.,?
a chance to rest and to think. Some of them want
Sunday papers : and ihey have only to leave their
names at their favorite office, and he served with
them before they are up; other? wish to read
works of a different character ; bat all?very near?
ly?desire quiet. Once they enjoyed it: but now
the loud incessant clamour of " Sunday New-. At
lis, and Merer}-, Extry Hurild, and Extry Sun."
makes the day hideous, worship in the churches
on our great thoroughfares a dumb-show mockery
arid rest all but impossible. Vet we do not look
lor a thorough correction of the evtl from the pre?

portant object, a? I think, to defeat tht Whig
parts at this Election. The greatest portion of
th" Abolition voter* are Whigs. Our hottest op?
ponents are Whigs. If they are beat. :h-y r.re gune
forever: and wc shall occupy the field alone. If
they ?ueeeed, they will tell us that we have effect?
ed nothing*, and can effect nothing'. Therefore it
ii m\ opinion, that ihe Candidates to ho put ia
nomination had better he 2 fVhigs who will make
the largest draft upon the Whig voters."

rjCZF* At the meeting of Mechanics opposed to
the State Prison Monopoly, held at Military
Hall on Friday evening la*t, it was resolved, that
the mechanics of each political party use means at
their primary meetings to procure a just proper- |
tionment of mechanics to be placed on the Nomi?
nating Committees thai will bo selected for the .
purpose of nominating suitable per?ons as senn- I
tors and representatives, to represent this city and
senatorial district in our next Legislature. We
:ru*t this just recommendation will be attended to
by the Whic mechanics. We believe the general
feeling is decidedly in favor of relieving the Me
cbaoics from the offensive competition from which
they now suffer, but the men sent to Albany this
winter must not only mean lo do right on this ques?
tion, bui kaov how 10 do it. Whig Mechanics I

the Capitol on Thur-day evening, to consider the
probable influence on the business of their City, of
the change in the termination of the Mohawk and
Hudson Railroad. Resolutions were adopted, de?
claring the change unfortunate for the Company, in?
convenient for the public, anil disa'troui in its
influence upon the business and interests of Albany.
A Committee was appointed to negotiate with the
Directors for the abandonment of the inclined
planes, nnd, if unsuccessful, to ndopt such de?
fensive measures far retaining the business and
promoting ihe prosperity of the City as the magni?
tude of the interests committed to their caro shall
seem to demand.
Cr Th" Cincinnati Gazette of the 1 Ith says
that an injunction has beeH obtained from ihe
Court of Common Pleas in Hamilton County, O.
u?ninst the Cincinnati and Indiana Whitu Water
Canal Company. The Canul was nearly finished
and would have been prepared for business at ihe
commencement of the next season. The opera
lion of the injunction is to throw out of employ?
ment several hundred workmen, to put off the re?
ceipt of the last instalment from the State, nnd
thus postpone the payment of all dues to coi'true
ters and others, to deprive the city of the tuxes
thin WHuld soon accrue, and to subject the work in ;
its unfinished stato to all the injuries of a winter
season. The Gazette expressus tho fear that no
arrangement can be made which will prevent this
accumulation of disasters.
