Saw Twk, Thunday, September ?, 183a.
T\e r*tnTiis thus far revived from the election
whub lock place ia Vermont on Tuosday, indicU-e
?a?pii'Tib o ebangc in the state of partita there.
While the whigs have, as hitherto, elected their
Governor by a largo minority, the democratic rote
is greatly increased that party harlng mado extoo- j
?ire inroads in the free soil ranks. Tbero has also
keen a charge, so for as known, of two or throe re
presentatives in the State Legislature in favor of the
democrats. With regard to tho Congress men, it is
pretty ccitaintbat tiro whigs have been elected, but
Ac other is somewhat doubtful.
On xefercnco to the proceedings of the Vaess^hn
sette Democratic State Convention, it will be wen
that there has been a regular split in the ranks ?
that the national democrats, who were greatly ia
the minority, have drawn off from tho coalitionists,
and resolved to have nothing more to do with them.
Tbe coalitionists nominated llonry W. Bishop for
lioveinor, James B. Thompson for I .ieuten&nt (gover
nor, and C. G Greene and 8. W. Whitney, for
Presidential electors. The hunkers, who had with
drawn from the main body, organized, and adopted
resolutions to tho c fleet that coalition with free
?i)ers is inconsistent with principles of democracy,
and that as the previous coalition had been fruitful
?f evil to the party, the democrats of the State
should repudiate all -nch unnatural eonnections.
The action 01 the regular convention was denounced,
*nd a committee was appointed to call for a conven
tion of the true democracy, if deemed expedient.
Here's a pretty fiare-up Well, the free eoilers
create trouble and confusion wherever they go.
It is almost unnecessary to direct the attention of
the reader to the proceedings of the Women's
Bighti Convention at Syracuse, given under the
telegntphi: head. The curious transactions of this
extraordinary body will probably be more generally
rood than those of almost any other assemblage of
persons, whether they be politicians, moral re
formers, socialists, philosophers, or rappers. These
women, who have thus boldly thrown off the con
-Motional usages of society, arc determined, among
other things, to exercise on influence upon the
?oviag Presidential contest; and it is not impro
bable that they will, to some extent, eft'eot their
object It is understood that a disposition is mani
fested, among seme of them, to deolare in favor of .
Soott, bat Gerrit Smith, who happens to be one of
their Vice Presidents, ia opposed to this, and will
exert himself to thwart the intentions of the Soward
ites, and prevail upon the body to eome out for
Hale and Jnlien. Issues of every description have
cpnug up, and been arranged, in all the parties of
the day, but this one among the women with regard
to Scott promises to lead to no inconsiderable ex
ntement in the ranks of the advocates of female
rights. Read the report? it is rather rich.
Last night the whig " unionists " held a meeting
at the Broadway House, which was addressed by
Hon. Presley Kwing. and other gentlemen, in favor
of the Presidential nominations of tho party. They
are frightened at the great apithy which prevails
the whig camp, and seem pazzJod. Every exor
tioa wrs made to get op some enthusiasm.
Here spirit and enthusiasm so ems to prevail
?nong the whigs of Ohio than in thia State. The
telegraph reports that a very large maaa meeting
waa held at Col urafeus, ye ale -day, at which s?y>ochoe
wore made in favor of pretoction to home industry,
river and harbor improvements, &c. Thia sounds
Mho the old party talk.
Wo elsewhere publish the proceedings of a mass
?ooTCutfon of the free democracy, or Hale party, at
Ana Barber, Michigan, by which it will be seen
that the free Boilers of that State are concentrating
their forces, raising financial means, establishing
aowspoper organs; and otherwise doing all they can
to make themselves felt in the ensuing campaign.
Joshua R biddings, Sam. Lewis, and others, ad
dressed the assemblage, aud resoluti ns, ratify
ing the nominations of Halo and Jnlien, rejoicing
at tho escape of every slave from his master, kc.,
vere anarimou^ly adopted.
The free Boilers yesterday, hold a County Conven
tion at Pittsburg, and nominated rondidatos for
Congress, the Suite Legislature, and Sheriff, lleeo
ations were adopted approving of the nomination of
Halo for President, censuring the United States
Senate for not passing the Free Farm bill, and
favoring the Maine Liquor law.

has within the last half century sprung up smcng
the different classes of manufacturers in this coun

A roprtit of the debates at the last two meeting*
of the Common Council will be found in our p^per
this iuoruiDg. There was very little talking last
( vriuiij,-, 1 ut a large number cfpapors were disposed
of, as may be seen by rcfereneo to our official ro
pati. A report in relation to tho cleaning of the
streets was presented, -bowirg tho number of tart
loads of dirt removod since tho commencement of
the jcar to the 31st of July. The amount. it ap
pears, exceeds by twenty thousand loads that re
moved during any one year since the organization
of the city government. 80 says the Commissioner.
This, however, is a very small amount when we con
sider tho site of the oity and groat increase of its
population. Rome thoroughfares near the East
river, and in the upper part of the city, leok as if
they had never been visited by a street sweeper.'
Yet, in the face of this the Commissioner congratu
lates himself and tho pooplc upon the groat heaps
of dirt which have been removed. Alderman 8tur
tevant cxprcssod his determination to call up the
Nineteenth wnrd election ease at tho next meeting,
and threatens to call it up every evening till it shall
be finally disposed of. Tho Board would confer a
favor upon reporters by facing their table somo
whero within hearing distance of tho mombers. Its
present situation renders it next to impossible for
those sitting at it to bear all that is said.

Interference of Foreign Powers In the
Affair* of il?ls Continent# >
A \ery singular artielc from the London fi ines
was copied into tho New Yon* IIkralo of tho 7th
inst. It is thcro stated that the President of Franoe
proposes an alliance between England, Franco and
the United States, to rogulato the affairs of Mexico,
A programme is drawn up b? Ixmis Napoleon, with
as much sang froul as ho exhibited whilo dissolving
the legislative Assembly. The Tchuantepec route
to the Pacific, as well as evory other practicable route
to our possessions in the West, arc discussod with
the utmost freedom; and the best plan is suggoated
to enable tho high contracting parties to carve
out highways through Mexico, for tho purpose
of facilitating commerce, and to advance the in
terests of mankind generally.
The French are not satisfied with tho privilege of
cxtciding their dominions in Africa. The liriti'-h
are yearly remarking their boundaries in Asia with
bloodr still thoy want moro land. It iB their boaat
that tho sun never sets upon their possessions, yot

alliance. How far has the timid vacillating policy
of tho administration which camo into power in
March, 1819, had an influence in prompting IiOuis
Napoleon to draw up his absurd programmo 1 They
may gain courage and audacity from the fcoblcncss
of a whig administration; but surely thoy under
stand too well tho fixed resolves of the great pro
gressive party of the United States, to suppose that
such an arrangement would be tolera'.ed for a
moment. What ! an alliance with Fran so aud Ping
land for the purpose of regulating tho affair* of
Mexioe ! To tie our hand-, so that our territory
shall not cross orery degree of latitude from
tho Arctic Ocean to the Isthmus of I>aricn!
To surrender all hope of putting an end to vexatious
questions of boundary, and rights of way, by ab
sorbing the whole territory! They must piaco a
very low estimate upon our sagacity. They may as
well suffer their pulse to resume its regular beat
This nervousness only disclose their folly. H e want
no intcrfcrtnce from England or Fra ;tc'C in the
of airs of Mtrico, and n- frill tvbmit to none. That
is a blunt, but a truthful answer to the silly pro
gramme of the Prince President. I^et him make the
roost of it. Before the close of this century, eveiy sea
that laves the shores of North America will mirror
tho stars and stripes. Destiny has decreed it Wtiy,
even now we should, in all human probability, have
possession of the republic of Mexico, instead of being
engaged in & dispute about Gamy grants, if General

Anna s army was destroyed. Five thousand mon
could then have held possession of tho country.
The men of wealth would bavo gladly submitted,
if law and order were to be substituted for anarchy
It was the policy of Mr. Polk's admlnlet ration to
hold possession of the country. It was ours by the
right of conquoFt. An arrogant foe had mvaded
our territory; he was repulsed and pursued into tho
heart of his own country. After almost every vic
tory, peace hod been offered, and when the terrible
battles of Contreras and Churubusco thinned his
ranks, and disheartened his hosts, ho agreed to an
aimistioe, with the avou-td intention of signing a
treaty, but in faet to roily his troops. His duplicity
was punished in the sanguinary battle of Mclino del
Hey, and '.ho capture of the city.
Both Scott and Trist, by a disobedienoc of orders,
thwarted the designs cf the admiurttratien, and
changed the current which was sotting towards em

negotiations. On the same day, the Secretary ?,
War addressed a letter to General Scott, irforming
him that the powers vested In Mr. Trist l.od been

This whole affair presents about the coolest ca%o
of insubordination which the records of oar coun
try presents to the reader.
If Gen. Bcott bad fully, fairly, and vigoroosyl,
carried out the instructions of the administration,
Mexico would baro been effectually conquered; and
the whole territory could have bcefl just as easily
acquired as that portion which was ceded by the
treaty of Gnadaloupe Hidalgo If suoh had boen the
termination of the war, we should not haro hoard
the insulting propositions of Louis Napoloon. There
would havo been no wrangling about the Garoy
grant; and that would have beon ours already,
which, perhaps, will requiro another war to obtain.
The work of giving a destiny to Mexico will have
-to bo done over again at an early day.
The Pkmockatic State Nominations ?The j
nomination or election of Sojmour ia a mere ba
gatelle in the great movement of the day, but it i? |
considered a triumph of the barnburners. It is
claimed by tbem, and ooncedod by tho hunkors, on
the ground of Mr. Seymour'8 open opposition to the
Nine Million Canal bill, both before and subsequent
to its passage. Upon every other question of dif
crenco which has existed in tho party during the
last five j ears, that gentleman has uniformly acted,
associated, and communed with the hunkers. He
has never bion known as a political abolitionist or
frco coiler; and during the period when the elder
and the younger Van Buren mounted the freo soil
hobby, Mr. Seymour was one of tho most activo and
tfficicnt supporters of General Cass and the national
democracy. It has frequently been asserted that
he'joined the barnburncis at the lost national oon
| vention; but his support of Governor Marcy, tho
bead and front of hunkerdom, oannot, with any pro
priety, bring him within the range ofsuch a charge.
Tho barnburners, in their support of Marcy,
itejped upon tho platform upon which Mr. 8ey
mour stood, and they certainly camo ovor to
hiia and Marcy, instead of tholr taking posi
tion upon uny free soil struct are. His preference
for Marcy, who is an able statesman of little prin
ciple, was only a matter of Stat* prida, and, as a
dtlegato from New York, Mr. 8. aotcd perfectly
coneittent in the course he pursued. Erastus Corn
ing, Zadock Pratt, and several othor distinguished
hunkers, wero equally eealous for the nomination
of Governor Marcy;, but, by taking that prcforenco,
theyjnianifested no hostility to Gcnoral Cass, Mr.
Buchanan, General Butler, or any o'.her candidate.
Had General Cass been tho successful nominee,
Horatio Seymour would have supported him as ar
dently and as honestly as ho did in 1&48, and as
efficiently as he now does General Franklin Pierce.
Tho charge, then, that Mr. S. is at all identified
with Jofin Van Burcn, as a free soiler, a barn
burner, or an abolitionist, is absolutely ridiculous,
and without tho least foundation in truth, as facta
and history sufficiently demonstrate. Why, thou,
is his nomination received coolly by the hard shell
bunkers 1 It is only bceausc he had tho sagacity
to po:ceive, at the earliest period, that Seward's
nino million bill was an enormous fraud upon
the people ? in violation of tho plain pro
visions of tho constitution ? and that he had tho
manliness and eourago, openly in public, to exposo
' and denounce it. Tho dciislon of the Court of Ap
peals most unequivocally sustained Mr. Seymour
in tho stand which ho thus took. The true friends
of the early completion of tho canals will very soon
fee the day when they will sing hosannahs to him
for his conduct on that occasion ; and ii ho con
tinues straight forward, which no doubt ho will,
they will find him one of the truest and mo3t relia
ble friends they ever bad. Upon a review of the
wholo matter, wo can discover not the least good
reason why the bard shell hunkers, and their parti
cular friends, tho contractor!, should oppose the
election of Mr. Sejmour.
On the other hand, the ever busy and amiable
barnburners are already threatening the defeat of
Mr. Follett, as Canal Commissioner. What for 1
Simply because, as a public officer, be h?a endea
vorcd to execute the duties of his office in a>
eordanco with the directions of the Legislature.
The canal law imposed certain duties apon him,
which he undertook to perform. In awarding
contracts under it, he undoubtedly came in con
diet with the withes and opinions of somo of
bis fellow members of tbe Canal Board. From
what bas been expesed to the publie, it ap
pears that his views were frequently expressed,
in opposition to tbe whig members, Fitxbngh and
Coek, as well a? to the opinions of Lieutenaat Gov
ernor Church, Cbatfield, and Wright. Are the
t>arnbumers prepared to defeat Mr. Follett, simply
on the ground that his opinions and views do not, in
every instance, acoord with Cbatfield, tho barnburn
er, or Wright, the hunkor deserter 1 Are they
ready to make suoh an issue 1 They must reeolleot
that the candidate lor Lieutenant Governor is one
of the most rabid frco soil abolition barnburner*,
and that two can always play at the same game
Therefore, beware, yo distrustful, mischievous, po
litical ingrates : the hunkers will have ' ' a ohiel
amang ye, takin notes." But, really and truly, it
is not a matter of much consequence who is elected
Governor ? the princlpal.tickct is the Presidential,
and if that goes in, all tbe others will go in also
The personal quarrels of tho hunkers and barn
burners, like tho high aspirations of Marcy, are
troth, troth, trash, trash, trash, everlasting trafth.
The Cabt before the Hojue ? Our sagacious
cotemporary of tho Courier has now a hope for the
whigs in New York. Ho sajs i
" Tbe nomination of llomtio S< jmour. not ontj secures
the re-i-lrcMon of Ocrvemor llunt. but it enables us to
hay to tbe whig* of thr t'nlt?>d StaU*. whnt w<- hafc never
ywl hrrrtoforo? it secures to (Uncial Scott thl electoral
wntti of Nfw York, if the whims will but manfully discbarge
tbeir duty to their principles Seymour's nomination.
Is 'be flrft evidence we hare ie*n that the Href-oral vote
of tbln t>t?te will be pi?en to Amoral Hcott ; an I our
friends in other Ptotcs may look upon it as a most aiiepl
elou* nottutnt for the whig cauie "
Governor Hunt is to bo re-cloctcd on tho canal
question, and he and the canals are to carry General
Scott safely through the combined squadrons of
hutikers and barnburners, and tho cross Gring of
the Hgle party, ord tbe Goodoll? Fred? Djuglos
paity. Hunt is to give the State to Bcott ; and the I
nomination of Seymour is to defeat Pierco ! What |
a ciucl joke ! In mathematics tho major projtosiiion '
carries the minor, so in politics, the Presidential !
ticket carries the Governor. Silas Wright was an '
exception; but his nomination was necessary to
unite tbe two democratic faction I. But Pierce has
done tbat fur the Van Iturens and all, and that
uneot stituUor.h.] nine million canal job is explode 1
and defunct, and stinks in the nostrils of tho
people. If it has come to this, that tho only pros
pect for General Scott is tke prospcct of Governor
II tint's election, upon the revival of this canal
enormity, then, indeed, is tbo ease desperate and
hopeleM How can tbe work be done with tbe cart
before th? horse, and a sick horse at that?
The Fmikimo rr ok the WB,fl Party ? A die

The Stanly meeting in thia eity, the other evening,
waa eonlewed?y a failure; the aubsoqnent little

And the some heavy incubus of indifibronie te tho
military glory of Gen. Scott, appears to extend
i over the whole country, from the St. Lawrenco to
the Rio Grand, and from Coney Ialand to 8an

is tho evil1? What are we to do to save Scott, to

Tbe evil is without romody. It is the evil of
natural decay. Parties-political, religious, and
fooial like codfish and cabbages, have thoir day.
They are subject to the samo universal law of
nature. They sprout, they blossom, they are deve
loped, and they die. The whig party has blossomed,
and run to seed, and is now going " the way of all
the earth " It is in the process of disintegration,
decomposition, and dissolution ; in fact, it is break
ing up like a Methodist camp meeting in the miiat
of a settled rain, or like Newport and Saratoga
Tibtii the season is over ? it is going at auction

cheap as dirt, and full of blood and carnage. Cir

Very well. We must put the best face upon this
business. Wo know that the whig party has rnn
its career? that it has nothing more to do-that it
is embarrassed, and harrassed, and broken in body
and spirit, with tho rank mutiny of Giddings and
the whigs of the Western Reserve of Ohio-with the
all-pcrvading distrust of Seward in tho South? with
tho machinations of the liberty men in New York
and tho free-sollers in Massachusetts ; and, worso'
than all, with the terrible dogged and sullen
silence of Daniel Webster upon tho nomination of
Gen. Scott-we know all this, but what can we doT
The experience of two gunpowder Presidents i?
recoiling upon tbe whig party. Defeat stares thorn
in tbe face. With their divided and disorganized
forces, they have to cope with the untcrrified and
hungry democracy-hungry, rallied and united as
hey never were before-moving North and Sonth
j *?. d ''J*!"*' lik6 a Rouaan kg ion, for Pierce
wd King, their Baltimore platform, and the forty
thousand offices, and the public plunder cf full fifty
millions a year !
What is to bo the end of all this ? In the defeat of
Oen Scott, what else can wc expoct, but the formal
disbudding and dissolution of the whig party ; and
what next but the merging of the Seward interest,
bag and baggage, into tbe great free soil abolition
party of tbe North ! Such are the oonaequencee
to a gTent party from pandering to all the political
abominations and catch- penny humbugs of the day
Let the whigs of the South stand their ground, and
lot the Webster conservative union whigs of the
North, and of Wall street, look about them, and
calmly inquire, in this crisis, whothor they had
not hotter rally upon Webster and the constitution,
than sil k with Seward and the higher law.
Gas axi> Gastsonomy.? There are some people
is this world who bare not tbe slightest con
ception of what modesty is ; or who, if they hare
any i(l:a on the sabjest, think it a quality with
which they have no manner of concern. Of suob
a class of society are those gents who, on every
n?oas on of a public banquet in this city, start up
whenever "the Press" is proposed We have some
half dozen of the genus, and aro ready to acknow
ledge ond bear testimony to their eomplote inno
cence of sueh a fault as exoeasivc modesty. Thore,
for instance, is one gentleman namod Dana, who
has some sort of connection with an abolition and
socialist p.iper in this city, who is suro to bo on his
legs, after this toast is given, before his more corpu
lent and less aetivo rival in the same business, Mr
Godwin, who also is somo kind of attaehi to an
other abolition -sheet. These worthy gentlemen are
seldom prevented by any obstacle whatever from be
ing present at a public dinner; and the first named,
on a late occasion, was modest enough to transfer
the cridit of gourmatulti ie, which was his own
inducement to be present, to the press at largo, for
which compliment they must eertainly feel indebted
to tbslr self -constituted representative and orator.
Thc*> eloquent oouvives have a few other imitators
in the same line, of some of whom, however? like
little Raymond, for instance ? it must be said that
they have somewhat a better justification in sotting
themselves np as respondents to the toast, inasmuch
as they are really connected with the press of New
But these orators who are so roady on all occasions
to spout most amazing nonsense inhenor of the press
of New York, do not, in faet, constitute any either
of the proprietary or the business men of that in
stitution. Few of the proprietors ever think of
personally accepting invitations to public banquets.
And when they do receive tiokets for such occasions,
they transfer them ? as it is intended they should ?
to their reporters. At.d of the reporters, it may
be said, with truth, that none of that efflnient body
ever make so little of themselves as to descend to
the practice of postprandial oratory. But it is
even unnecessary for them; and if, on any special
occasion, they wished io spuak to the toast, they
eould not do so without coming into unworthy com
petition with hucb hackneyed individuals as those
we have alluded to. When work is to be done at
such assemblies, it devolves on the reporters.
Messrs. Godwin and Dana never make themselves
useful i > reporting, but seek another kind of dis
tinction, which only excites ridicule and contempt.
Besides, when important events oeeur, or when
magnificent new hotels are opened, which are to be
oommemo/ated by a banqnet, the preliminary work
of noticing and describing them is perfumed by
the reporters, and thu laudation of thorn is done by
the proprietors; bat in noither capacity do these
orators bear a part. Their yoke is ea*y, and their
burden is ligbt. They have only to assume the ne
cessary u mount of brazen impudence? a commodity
t f whieh their stock is inexbs-uKtihlo? a d when a
toast honorary to the pri?s ie proposed, stand up

N*w York City and the State Conventions.?
It i* ft fact worthy of note, that tba city of Now
York bus very little iutluenoe, by her delegates, in
tbn Htate conventions of the respective parties.
This was especially manifested iu tho recont demo
crat o convention, ani that it is so, cvinces a wis
dom and conservatism amongst the )teople of the
State dwelling beyond the reach of city corruptioi.
that mutt gratify every one who desires purity in
the administration of our government The poople
in tbo country are beginning to understand that our
prin>ury dictions are the merest farce in the world,
and that tbe delegates sent to Stato or other conven
tions, n fiect in no true sense tho public opinion of
the party in wbose Dame they arc ohoscc. Any ono
who can got the inspectors of the election appointed
favorablo to him, almost invariably receives from
them tbo certificate of election; so that tho choice
of incpectora is, practioally, the appointment of de
legates, without regard to tho votes polio i. Dele
gates cboscn in l his way go to the convention to
serve the individual for whose benefit they woro
engaged, and whatever reasons may ariso for par
suing a different eourte from the one laid down for
them, tbey have noither the capacity nor tho ho
nesty to depart from their instruotiona.
From the proceedings of tho late democratic con
vention at Syracuse, it appears that all the dologatos
from this city, save one, supported for Governor the
chairman of the Tammany JIoll committee. .Would
any honest democrat pretend that ho was the choico
of any con Jderablo portion of that party in the city"?
A majority of the Tammany committee arc un
doubtedly favorable to him; but thoy are only abjut
thirty ? three in number, and thta thirty -throe had
tho appointment of the inspector* who hold tho
eleetions, and henee delegates wore cho?en favorablo
to their chairman for Governor. By this ptrty ma
chinery, an individual is presented as tho city's can
didate for a high office, who could not, without it,
ever have been thought of in connection with it.
But the evil docs not stop hero. Oar local nomi
nations are controlled in tho same manner, and men
aro put forward for our oity offices who have no qua]
ideations whatever for the placed, and tho lath of
party is put in use to eompel an election. Hero we
may And tho reason why tho mombcrs of tho legis.
laturc and tho representatives in Congress, from the
oity, rarely command tbe respect of tho?e sent from
the intorior of the State. The samo may bo said of
tho whigs j and between the twi pirties, wo don't
perceive any prospect of a mitigation of tho evil
Therefore, the country has taken caro to bestow tho
State offices on men whoso talents and qualifications
have commanded the rospeet and confidonco of the
people; and it is to the country, too, that wo art
indebted for tho generally wise legislation whivh has
characterized our State.

Orr.wijio ov TV m.hck's Lyceum.? Tho Lyceum, wli:c't
had been closed for several month's past, re-op?ncl nnd *
new and better auf pices last evening, under the maaiijo
mcnt and prcprietorship o! Mr. Wallack. The theatre
has undergone man; improvements sinec it hw pissed
into his bands. The sofas of the boxes and D.trquct have
been renovated and heightened. Two new and Tory hini
seme boxes havo been added, the entrance and lobbkw
ornamented; end the whole interior of the h0UM0 has
put on an elegant and fashionable appearance. The per
formances of last evening commcnccd with the excellent
ocmedy of " The way to get Married." with Blako. Will
oott and Lester supporting the characters of Toby All
spice. Dot hall and Tan;w>t; and Mr. D. B. Phillips that of
Caustic. Those gentlemen are already well and favorably
known to^he play going public, and a criticism of their
performances would be supererogatory, suffice it to say
that each seemed to strive on this occasion to surpass
any thing he had done before In the same lino. And
in this we think they were successful. They
certainly managed to keep the audience In
continuous roar of laughter. Mrs. Dockland played
Clementina extremely well, and Julia Faulkner and
and Lady Sorrel. were also well raataiw d by Mines Halo
and Cramer With such names occoning in the sto-lt
company, the sea.' on cannot but be succeesfol at the Ly
ceum? which, besides, possesses the attraotion of a very
fine orchestra. After the oomedy was concluded, and a
/ *? nut daneed by Miss Malvina in whioh she was encored
and received half a doz? n boqueta, Mr. Wallackwae eallod
on. and his appearance on the stage was the signal for
a loud and continuous uproar of applause from the audi*
enee ? many of his prnonal fiiends standing up. waving
tbelrhats and shout ipg most energetically. Having at
length obtained silence, Mr. Wallack addressed the audi
anee as follows:?
Ladles and Gentlemen, you are perhaps aware that 1

met a reception like that which ebeers me to night They
bailed the young man with enthusiasm, and encouraged
him as i bey now do the old man. Bo owes his success
to your kindness And forbearance, and for thi-ty ye-ars.
