The great Southern Mail received Yesterday
failed to connect at Weldon, leaving us with lit
tie additional newe from Georgia. What wc
have, however, is not very favorable, and rather
indicate* a Polk triumph.
We have scattering returns from Towns and
parts of Counties on the Ohio River. They
indicate that the Stite has gone Whig, by a fair
majority. We shall have news this afternoon.
Detroit has given some 30 Whig majority,
which is very weil. There was a rumor in town
on Saturday that the State had gone Loco by
some 4,000 majority?probable enough in itself,
bot purporting to rest on advices received at Buf?
falo on Thursday morning. The Buffalo papers
?f Thursday evening are silent on the subject.
The Popular Vote.
The total Vote for President at the recent
Elections is very great?probably twenty per
cent, higher in the contested States than it was
in 1840, when our opponents accused the Whigs
of fraudulent and double voting, but a scrutiny
proved that the remarkably heavy votes had all
been cast in their strongholds. Sa far as weean
now judge, the Popular Majorities in the several
States heard from are very nearly as follows :

Kentucky, judging from the few returns we
have seen, has given Mr. Clay a large majority.
Indiana has also gone for him, there seems
hardly room to doubt, by a respectable majority.
Oar Defeat In New-York.
Early in the campaign, when it seemed to us
impossible that the Van Buren men of this State
could be rallied to the unanimous and hearty sup.
port of James K. Polk, in view of the circum?
stances of his nomination?when it seemed to
us impossible that avowed and strenuous anti
Texas and Protective Tariff men should be
brought to support an avowed Annexationist and
notorious Free Trader, wc estimated that Mr.
Clay would carry New-York by 20,000. At a
later period, when wc found that the party drill
was stronger than we had deemed it, wc esti?
mated the majority for Mr. Clay at 10,000, and
this we believed he would most assuredly get,
down to the State Election in Pennsylvania, the
course of the Natives and Whigs, and the defeat of
Markte. These things made against us, yet wc
etill believed and stated to friends, in reply to
private letters of inquiry, that wc must triumph
in New-York. Yet wc aic beaten?but how I
1. By the throwing away of some 15,000 votes
?nine-tenths of them Whig on all questions of
National Policy?on the Birney ticket. Wc did
believe that at least half these would finally vote
eo as to prevent the Annexation of Texas. Yet
the false representations of Birney, Leavitt & Co.
that Clay was us much fur Annexation as Polk,
i and more likely to effect it, &c. Sec. have car.
' rjed all these votes obliquely in favor of Annexa?
tion, War, and eternal Slavery.
2. The Naturalizud Citizens have all been
carried for Polk by appeals to their Religious and
old-world feelings and prejudices. They have
been told that they would be deprived of their
Political Rights and reduced to vassalage in the
event of Mr. Clay's electio 1, and this, with still
more monstrous bugbears, has driven from us
those who were formerly with us. In one little
town in Tioga Co. nineteen voters of Irish birth
and Catholic faith who had voted Whig for years
turned against as only the day before Election.
? In every county there were some such. In Buf.
faJo alone, there have been fourteen hundred nat?
uralized since 1840. Of this clans Iwe have in
other times had one fourth or one-fifth with us;
now they went in solid column against us, cut?
ting down the majority in Erie county from
Three Thousand to Eighteen Hundred. Mon?
roe and Niagara counties exhibit similar results;
so do Albany and Cayuga. Our Whig strong?
holds where there are few Adopted Citizens have
not fallen off, except under the influence of Ab.
olition. But not merely is the Naturalized Vote
against us, but it is many thousands stronger than
it would have been but for the Philadelphia Riots
and the Catholic dread of Nativism. All our
Courts that could Naturalize were crowded with
applicants for citizenship for weeks before elec?
tion, and voters were turned out at some of them
with astonishing celerity. We hear that some of
the judges have been employed for days since the
?lection in signing the affidavits, dec, which they
appear'on the record as having executed before the
3. But even this would not have availed to
defeat us but for an overwhelming Illegal Vote,
beyond any precedent. Thousands of Irishmen
employed on the Canada Public Works came
over here to help their brethren iu the contest, as
they understood it, fur Foreigner's rights, and
did help them most effectually. The Alien (unna
totalized) population of our own and other Cities
gave a large vote, generally offering aileast one
ballot each, and many of them more than one.
From the statements of those who know, but who
could make public what they knew only at the
hazard of their lives, we infer that not less than
Three Thousand votes for Polk were cast in our
Oity alone by men who were not citizens of the
United States. Right gladly would we risk our
life on this, that a thorough sifting of the Polls,
so as to throw out every illegal vote cast in the
State, would give its Thirty-sLx Electors' Vote
to Clay and Frelinghuyscn. But this cannot be
had, and a Sooth Carolina dynasty is by the foul
es) deception and most atrocious fraud, fastened
oiw~i ih* American People for four years to come.
Bitterly will this he rued by many who cannot
yet allow tbemsilvee to get sober jay at the con.
Doxtt forget Broome.
Among the counties that have stood firm in the
late contest, we ought to remember Baoouc,
which gives a Whig majority of 147. The town
?f Chenango, the residence of D. S. Dickinson,
the Loco Foeo State Elector, and Mr. Collier the
Whig State Elector, and which in 1S42 gave
Governor Bonck a majority of about 100, now
gives Mr. Clay 175 majority, and 160 for Fill
Kj* Oar thanks are dus to G. W. Carman,
Esq. of the Steamboat Columbia, for facilities af?
forded in the collection of Election Returns.
Hettlwo AmerlcsmUa?.
Wc are not surprised that a large portion of
the Wnig Party and Press, smarting under the
grievous wrongs and frauds of the late ElectioD,
should lend a willing ear to the solicitations of the
' American Republican' formation. It is natural
that thtj shouid do so, yet not the less unwise
to break our own ranis and fall into theirs. Let
us consider the evils we suffer from, and the effi?
cacy of the proposed remedy.
Our Country'* creates', living .Statcsm.in lias
just been defeated, (it is flmust certain.) and the
benignant system of National Policy with which
he is identified has been frustrated by what is
termed the Foreign Vote. That is, the .Man and
the Measures preferred by a large raaj j.-ity of
Americans born have been crushed by ihe vote
of Two Hundred Thousand Immigrants from
Europe whom we have admitted to an equality
of Political Rights with us. While we Ameri?
cans b rrn are nearly ail in some degree educated
and informed en questions of National policy,
these are in good part unable to read or write, and
many of them unable to speak our language.
While we very generally consider and discuss the
great Political questions of the day, these concern
themselves very iittie, inform themselves less,
with regard to the Tatiff, the Annexation of
Texas, or whatever may be the ruling topics of
the time, but band together as Irishmen, Ger?
mans, or whatever they may be, to secure per?
sonal or clannish ends. While Americans born
have generally too much sense to believe, even
where they have not honesty enough to discoun?
tenance, the notion that one-half our countrymen
are aristocrats and swindlers, scheming to rob
the poor of their scanty earnings, the Foreign
born are induced really t j believe and act upon it,
with the added embellishment that these aris?
tocrats have an especial hatred to Foreigners, and
are eager to oppress and trample on them. The
consequence is that this great and controlling
class of voters do not actually render a verdict
on the great issues tried before the People,?do
not even consider, much less undc;stand, those
issues, but vote in a body for the side they are
told is the Democratic, no matter what it pro?
vosts to do or lef.vo undone They contribute
nothing to ihe aggregate of knowledge and wis.
dorn with which our public affairs are directed,
but arc so much dead-weight in the scale?so
much stock in trade of mercenary demagogues
who say,' I control so many Irish votes, and will
have a place in the Customs;'' I can manage so
many Dutch, and must be made a Captain of the
Watch or I will bolt,' and so on. We mu9t put
an end to all this.
?We have thus endeavored to state' fully the
evil contemplated, as one inclined to Nativism
would state it. For the purposes of the argu?
ment, we will admit that it is a true and faithful
statement. Admitting the evil, what is the prop,
er and attainable remedy ?
' This is easily seen, says a Native,1 Abandon
your Whig party, unite with ours, and effect a
thorough Reform of the Naturalization laws.'
Effect, did you Fay ? That point demands
consideration. Suppose wc unite with your par?
ty, what then .' Will that give us a Congress
prepared to correct lite evils deplored !' Will it
induce .lames K. l'olk, who has just been chosen
['resident by iho Vutcs of foreigners not nat
u rail zed at all, to sign* bill cutting off the " in?
iquities to him and his so profitable." Suppose a
small portion of the Loco-Focos unite with us on
this question, how long can they be depended on?
Have wc not seen them whiffling back again in
the vigorous infancy of the party which they
themselves started 1 Have we not seen their
ticket abandoned even by some of those who
rode into office on Nativism ? Have wc not
seen thousands who professed to udhere to the
party voting for Polk and Dallas, though they
knew their success must inevitably prevent any
reform of the Naturalization Laws for the next
lour years ? Who that has seen all this can trust
them to stick to their own course for a single year?
No, Whigs ! you have had bitter evidence
that you cannot rely on such allies. Many of
them arc now claiming a special dispensation of
offices and honors from the dynasty that is to be,
on the ground that their adroitness in getting up
the Nativo party, having it charged on the Whigs,
and at last stepping out and carrying all they
could for Polk und Dallas, has alone defeated
Mr. Clay. They will probably receive largely
in the distribution of the spoils. But shall we
profit nothing by what we have seen and suf?
fered I
? Whigs! let us hold fast to our own party and
J our own name ! It is a standing reproach with
our opponents that wc need or take u new name
every few years; and, though this, rightlv con
sidcrcd, involves nothing of which we should be
ashamed?implies simply that wc pursue that
good, oppose that evil, which is to day most im?
minent and arc named accordingly?yet wc con?
fess a strong attachment to the good old Revo
lutionary name of Whig. Our forefathers bore
and were proud of it; it is short, pithy, and im
plies Resistance to Executive Despotism?an
evil to which ultra Democracy perpetually tends.
It has coidc to imply also resistance to that bale
ful, blighting Jacobinism which seeks to array
the Poor against the Rich, the Laborer against
the Capitalist, and thus embroil Society in one
uuiversal net-work of jealousies and bitter hatreds.
The Whig party is the party of Liberty secured
by Law, of Justice attained through Constitu.
tional Order, of National Prosperity secured
through Social Concord and Harmony of Inter?
ests between at! classes and divisions. What?
ever evil is to be corrected, whatever good is to
be secured, may us surely be done through the
Whig party as through any new party. Can anv
one doubt that, if the Whigs had succeeded in
the late Elections, the shameful abuses and ini?
quities therein perpetrated under cover of the
Naturalization Laws would have been corrected ?
If se, why form a new party ?
But let us look a little at the genius of this
new ? American Republican' party which we are
invited to join, and sec what it proposes to ac?
complish :
One of its original tenets, and one most rigid,
ly insisted on, was the exclusion of Adopted Ci?
tizens from O?ce. This absurd and invidious
distinction was directly calculated to aggravate
the mischiefs which Nativism pro.esscs a desire
to cure, by perpetuating and rendering more
marked the difference between Native and Adopt?
ed Citizens. Wc believe it has since been utterly
Its chief remaining principle is the extension of
the term of probation required of Immigrants
from five to twenty.oue years. Now, waiving
our OWii abjection to this term as unreasonably
long, wc ask, what good h to be effected by ex?
act ing it ? Suppose Congress should pass a law
extending the term to twenty-one years, how is
it to be enforced ? If States see fit, will they not
admit Abens to vote on shorter probation, as
Michigan and Illinois have already done ? What,
then, would be gained ?
Even if this were not done, how is the exac?
tion of twenty-one years to be enforced ? You
I might keep btck the conscientious and just, bui
the reckless snd profligate would Tote in d?fi.
ancc of your laws, as they now do. Hundred*
do so vote every year; thousands so voted thisj
year, in spite of the boasted vigilance of our?Na?
tive' Inspectors and challengers 1 Would it be
any better, think yon, if the Immigrant were for?
bidden to vote until he had been here twenty
?But these considerations multiply, end we
must to-morrow recur to the subject.

Dear Sir: I have a moment to say, that North
Carolina is O. K. We have heard from Counties
sufficient to render it certain that the eleven
Electoral Votes of this never-wavering, honest
old State, have been secured for our gallant
leader and his worthy associate on the Whig
ticket. Details always lessen interest, so I will
not give them, but I again assure that wc have
fought the fight in good faith, going for the Ta
riff as zealously as Massachusetts could do, and
showing that though wc live in a Southern State,
we are not to be frightened by the raw-head-and
bloody-bones of disorganizcrs and Disunionists.

From ihe Ali? of Saturday.
The old Cradle of Liberty was thronged, last
night, to its utmost capacity, by firm, unshrink?

inmost hearts, whatever reverses or unpropitious
circumstances have appeared ti threaten, to

alone c-tn secure the prorperity, or even the pre?

every lover of the human race to gaze upon. The

At a little after seven o'clock, this vast as3*m
Mage was called to order by John L. Dimmock,
E>q., and Hon. Abbott Lawrence was unani?
mously called to the Chair. Hon. Charles F.
Adams and John L. Dimmock, Esqs.. were ap
pointed Vic: Presidents ; and Messrs. UcorgtG.
Smith, WilLam Hartis mid Alien Shepherd, Sec?
After nine most deafening and heartfelt cheers
had been given for Hon. Daniel Webster, the
Chairman, Hon. Alsbott Lawrence addrc3:ed the
He remarked that they had aecembled for the
purpose of taking counee! together in view of the
approaching election. The present was no ordi
nary occasion. The rirm and patriotic Whigs of
Massachusetts mioht be pained at the result ot!
some ?f the recent elections, but they were not
dismayed; they mitrht be cart down, but the.
were not discouraged. He knew that there w?s
sjinc d >uot whether the Whig cause hid tri
umpned?there was some doubt whether the
Whigs had elected their candidates for President
and Vieo President of the United States. I he
doubt mu-t have fallen with a chilling influence
itpin the friends of ;hc Whig cause in .\l;-.>s chu
setts, but he hoped and believed that it would not
cause any of them to fail in their duty at the
coming election. {An universal response of no!
no.') Whatever might have beep, the result in
other S:at<s, the true sons of Mas?achusetts
would remain zealous and s'.eadfdstin support of
those principles upon which they believed the
preservation and permanency of nur free institu?
tions depended. He knew not what had been
tne issue of the elections in m.:nv r fthe other
States, but he knew what it ought to be. Even
if it has been adverse to their cause, toe Whigs
have much to congratulate themselves upon?
much to bepr-'ud of. The canvass, as it had
been conducted on thf.ir prri, had been highly
dignified, and eminently creditable to them. Tne
speeches of their distinguished orators, and the
addresses of their Statu Committees, appealed
to the reason, 'he understanding, and the judo;,
ment of the citizens. Clap-trap had been avoid
ed, and al! unworthy appeals to the base and vi?
olent pas-ions. If, a?cr all, we should fail in
electing our candidate f>r President, let us, at
least, have the consciousness of having well and
faithfully performed our duty. There were other
duties. The Governor and Lieutenant Gover?
nor, and other State officers, were to be chosen.
The Whigs must see to it, that they should be
such men as will maintain the high and enviable
character of the Old Bay Suite.
Mr. Lawrence said that he would not detain
the meeting any longer. He rejoiced to say, that
there were present among them, one who was a ;
tried and deeply honored veteran, in the cause of
the Constitutum and the Laws; who had ppent,
ho had almost said, a lifotimo in <u>rviao of
his country,?and who was, from his great and
powerful services in the cause, pre-eminently the
Defender of the Constitution. Mr. Lawrence
added ihat it would be arrogance in him, under
such circumstances, to take up the time of the
meeting. He returned his heartfelt thanks for
the high honor done to himself, in selecting htm
to preside over the deliberations of such anas=em
bly, and most earnestly and forcibly urged upon
them not to give up ihe good cause.
Hon. Jonathan Chapman, in a brief, but per?
tinent, encouraging, and happy speech, introdu?
ced the following resolutions, which were most
heartily and enthusiastically received by the thou
sands present.
In Fanei il Hall. .Nov. H, IMi.
Ihe Whigs in ihe City of Boston and ot the
County of Suffolk, having assembled in Faneuil
Hall under a deep sense of what they owe to the
Country and their own Stale?with the solemn con?
viction that principles do not change either with
trrnporary success or defeat, and resolutely deter?
mined that, whatever other Stale* may do, Massa?
chusetts, their own proud and cherished State,shall
stand, where alone she belong?, first among the
foremost in the sup;>ort of good principles and good
government, would record their feelings and pur
puses in the following Resolutions:
Resolved, That we believe the crisis through
which the country is now pissing, to be fraught
with more momentous consequences to all its vuul
interests than any which it has witnessed since the
days of the Revolution??ml, lhal however oilier
States may falter or desert her in this hour of peril,
Massachusetts will uoi; but, amidst weal and wo, and
come victory or defeat elsewhere, she shall standee
a beacon-light of truth and principle, even if she
stand alont:.
Resolved, That we hold ihe mighty issues which
now await decision to be, Whether the great cause
of American Labor?that pillar of our national pros?
perity, and of our existence as a true Republic?is
to receive the protection of a just and benign gov?
ernment, or be sacrificed at ihe shrine of foreign in?

defeat be every where abroad ; that though the
tide of foreign influence and domestic corruption
may overflow the land elsewhere, here, ut least in
Mal-sachusetts, shall be found one mountain eleva

Mr. WfeB3TKR. was then appropriately announ?
ced by the chair, and was received with such
heartfelt, enthusiastic, and prolonged acclama?
tions as have seldom, if ever before, sheken the
walls of Old Faneuil Hall. As soon as he could
make himself heard, Mr. Webster commenced as
" What though the ricM be lost 0
All i* not lo?t. The rnKQBquetable will."
The patriotic hope, the stem integrity, the high
sei.se ot duty, our attachment to iibcrty, uur ri-.
delitv to the Constitution, our love of our native
land, wiil abie'e by u?, notwithstanding the tri?
umphs of enemies, or the falling off of friends, or
any ether adverse occurrence. Our cause is the
s i me, truth is the same, our country is the sa-ae,
and we are the same.
Whig- of boston! ii" the information this mor?
ning, respecting the tlecti as, bad been the same
as yesterday, I had purposed to ask of y>ur com?
mittee to exeuso me from attending tins meeting,
which would then have been one of congratula?
tion and unmixed joy; and I rould have retired lo
recruit myself from the fa'igues of the contest of
this campaign. But when clouds seem to lower
upon and darken our p.ospccts, when we are as
saultcd by attacks of unexpected severity, I feel
called up:m to report myself, and to aver my
readiness, and determination to do with alacrity
and zeai, whatever lies in my power to maintain
a just and righteous cause.
Gentlemen, it may be. afl has been said, that
ti.o National Elections wear an uttfavorab'e as?
pect. It may bs that the Whigs have not suc?
ceed ;d in electing their President. But, yet,
Massachusetts is rot alone. Th:ee of her New
England sis:ers ate with her, Vermont: Connect?
icut and Rhode Islattd; as also Ohio, Maryland,
Ncw.Jersey, Delaware, and, probably, Indiana,
Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina and Louis
iana. But what if she should .taml alone in her
devotion to the Whig cauec / What if she should
stand preeminent among the Whig States? It
would be a noble distinction. Let her win it
and wear it! The honor weil becomes her an?
cient brows.
Mr. Webster said that it was loo late to go
through with the topics that have engrossed the
public mind for several months pajt. The suf?
frages of many >f the States had already been
cast for President, and our own State was about
to declare herself at the polls, lie urged the
great importance of a full vote at the coming
election, even were nothing but the administra?
tion of Massachusetts at issue. He spoke of the
regulating influence of the State Government J
over uncial life, *nd of ite happy effects, if wise j
and parental. If the National policy is likely to
bo adverse to what we consider the true interests
of the country, so much the more are we bound to
secure, as far as in us lies, the safety of our Com.
monwealth, mid add its influence and voice to the
protection and security of our free institutions.
In his opinion no political party question was
more important, and at the same time more easy
of decision, than those of Texas and the Tariff;
and it was deeply mortifying to him, as an Ame?
rican, to reflect upon the views avowed by so
many of our citizens; to find pauper labor re?
commended by any portion of our citizens at the
North. But the course taken by them with re?
gard to the Annexation of Texas, was still more
mortifying. When that project was first proposed
all parties at the North rejected it, disclaimed it;
would have nothing to do with it. And yet wo
find, in a few short months, a whoic party, even
in Massachusetts, wheeling deliberately round
and advocating and supporting that very project,
which they have declared ruinous to the country
and fatal to the Constitution.
Mr. Webster remarked that, if the elections had
resulted unfavorably, it was, perhaps, useless, at
that time, to investigate the causes of disappoint
ment. It might not even be proper to state all
the causes then. But there was one cause, so
conspicuous, so glaring, which stood out in such
bold relief, that it was impossible to shut our
ryes to it. or not to deplore its consequences.
The results in several of the States cannot fail to
impress upon every thinking and reasonable man
the deep conviction of the absolute necessity of a
thorough reform of the Naturalization Law.
{Tremendous and continued cheering.) Mr.
Webster went on lo say, that he believed, upon
his conscience, that the preservation of the Con?
stitution imperatively demanded this; and that
all parties, however they might differ upon se?
condary matters, should unite for the preservation
of what was of far higher and greater necessity
than any mere party considerations.
We are, of course, willing and desirous that
America should open an inviting asylum to the
oppressed of all the nations of the earth. We are
willing and desirous that all on the Globe, who
are honest and indus'rious, ana would Come to
us fur the purpose ol bettering their Condition
and enjoying the blessings of a free and popular
Government, stiouid be made welcome. But it
to not unreasonable that these foreigners, before
they take part in regulating a Government, of
which ail of its people are the sovereigns, should
have resided here long enough to have some ac?
quaintance with our laws, our social and civil in?
stitutions; that they should have become Ameri?
cans in principle, in interest and in feeling, as
well as in the fact of having placed their uomi
cils amongst us. As to foreigners already natu
ralized, their rights are secured, and lot them en
joy them. But let us have such provision made
that tlie sovereign power shall not be swayed or
shared by these who are unused to libertv, do not
understand it, and have never learned the duties
of responsible freemen.
Mr. W. urged the necessity of an amendment
of the naturalization law, in order to prevent the
gress frauds which have occurred at elections.
It was notorious that immense numbers of natu?
ral, zativn papers are obtained by perjury, and
many fur^;gncrs have been raidc citizens and
voters by the same set of p :pers. Masters of
vessels, wbo have brought over foreign paupers
t-j this country, in thirty days after their arrival,
have seen the same persons sworn in as citizens,
and givJig their votes, without knowing, in the
slightest degiee, the question at issue, or even
tr.e u^mesof the cand. dates?thus counteracting
and overwhelming the will of legal voters. The
question is, whether this is "an cvi>, grievous to
be borne," or whether it is a grievous evil and
not to be borne.
Mr. W. said that, if the general election went
against us, he had not a dcubt that it was owing
tu false votC3 and false voters in Southern cities.
If Pennsylvania is carried by five or six ihou
rand votes for Polk, who does not feel that two
of those tWusands were given by illegally natu,
ralized f .rtigucrs in Philadelphia ' New-York,
with a population of 300,1100, cast a vote of
6l),00U?onenutof ever,-fiv^ r.f the inhabitant;
Is it not pci^.b.c that niany of tue votea must j
have been false? If we lose the el<jction from
this cause, we ought to go to the source of popu?
lar power and purify it.
Mr. W. then alluded to the diplomatic corres?
pondence concerning the treaty with Texas, re?
commending the admission of Texas into the
Union, upon the ground that it was necessary in
order to maintain the institution of Slavery in the
United States.lt was impossible for any American,
who loved his country, to read the comments of
European writers and speakers on th:s subject,
without deep shamo and mortification. He
showed the absurdity, the inconsistency of this
?bcrty-loving and Christian people, insisting that
slavery is indisp. nsible in th;s free land. But
this question of the Annexation of Texas cannot
be decided to-day or to morrow. If wc cannot
avert the threatened evil by the election of our
President, let us exert what restraint wc can by
sending the proper men to Congress, who will do
all they can to prevent the scheme from going
forward. For myself, said Mr. W., I did not
intend to tako any very active part in the present
canvass ; but from the time that the Annexation
of Texas was proposed, I rcsoived to lay aside
all personal considerations, and devote my time,
thoughts, and voice, to avert this dangerous and
degrading project.
Mr. Webster then made a stirring appeal to
his fellow-citizens, to give the vote of Massachu?
setts in favor of the liberty of man, and the pre- ?
scrvation of the Constitution. Let her be found
where she ought to be. He urged them to se?
cure the election for our Stale officers, of such
men as Samuel Adams, and John Hancock, and
George Washington would approve, whose por?
traits adorned the walls of Faneuil, und seemed
to look down upon the present meeting. He
seemed to hear them, he did hear them say?
"Whigs, we arc with you! Maintain and de?
fend our principles; follow our footsteps!" Let
us answer?" We will do so. Through good re?
port or evil report, living und dying, prosperous
or unprosperous, we will shew ourselves not un?
worthy to follow such glorious masters."
Mr. Webster then sat down amid the most
prolonged and deafening cheers, winch were
again and again repeated.
Thrilling and eloquent speeches were then
made by Messrs. Stephensox, Brooks, and Bir
lixgame, of Michigan, which we regret wc can
n ji lay belore our readers.
The resolutions were then adopted unanimous,
ly, with hearty acclamations, and, after giving
nine tremendous cheers for Whig principles, the
immense assembly peaceably dispersed.

in the civil commotions in those Provinces, and
transported to Van Diemen's L -nd. Thirty,

By the arrival of the Barque St. Joseph, We
have advices from Rio to the 16th of September
hist. Politically the news is important. A cor.
respondent writes :
The latest news from Rio Grande is that the
war between Buenos Ayres and Brazil, has at
length commenced in earnest, several skirmishes
having taken place on the north side of the La
Plata, during the march of the Brazilian army
toward Montevideo.
The Brazilians will not make so easy a con?
quest in that quarter as was Eupposed ; they are
not as good soldiers, and have not had the eipe
riencethat the Monti videans have had, besides the
bl jckaded city had received strong reinforcements
from the capitol and all the principal Towns
throughout the Argentine Republic.
Grn. Paz has left here for Monti video; a small
detachment left a few days before him, under his
special command. He will overtake them before
they reach Rio Grande, when they will join a
force of 12,000 men and march immediately for
the scat of war.
President Rosas is wnfincd to his palace with

By the arrival ycs'.crday of tho brig Francis
Lord, Capt Howe, wc k.un that the bark lino,
gene, Captain William*, was chartered by the
Portuguese Government at Bissao to jj? to tlie
River Gambia for aid, afl there was a war with
the natives (Popels) caused by a quarrel between
some soldiers and the natives, which resulted in
the dcalh of a native by a bayonet of one of the
soloicrs. That evening the natives attacked the
town and fort, and partly plundered the town.
When Capt-rin Wilhams sailed from B:s?ao the
principal merchants had removed the greater part
of their goods on board tho vessels there, or at a
neighboring Island, and the natives had full pos.
session of the town. The Governor at Gambia
was not able to furnibh any troops on account of
sickners among the officers of the garrison.
Capt. Williams had sent to Gorce for aid, and a
brig of war had sailed for Bissao before he (Capt.
Williams) left the G?mb a. On tho 10th Octo.

Gambia for Bissao. This information was re
