Iu 1834 and '36, they succeeded iu their endeavors lo arrest the public busi ness to favor the Bank parties. They post poned the usual appropriation bill, which they knew would give great relief to the public, through the public expenditures, to a period later than the present, but it has never occur red except in the times of bank parties. In looking back twenty years, these two cases stand alone and conspicuously. Every man in the country must see, in the repetition of this specie3 of warfare now, the renewal of the design which induced the harrassing and worrying experiment upon the country which signalized the panic years. The nation will inquire why does the majori tyiu the House permit this? We must frankly state that it cannot prevent it. All money bills must, under the rules, be considered in the Committee of the Whole, and there the previous question cannot be called to cut off interminable debate. And even the exhaust ing process by which the majority have en deavored to sit out ths discussion, allowing the Opposition to speak itself out of topics, has been foiled by their new trickery lately introduced. When all their speakers have exhausted themselves in speaking against time, and the question is about to be made, to rise, aud report the bill to the House it is frustrated by the withdrawal of the mass of the Opposition bebiud the bar of the House, or a refusal to answer to their names. Then a call of the House becomes necessary, and the Sergeant-at-Arms is employed for hours in summoning and bringing in members. Next follows the delay of hearing excuses of absentees, and questions on fines after this a succession of motions for the release of fines. In work of this sort, a sufficient number of hours is consumed to enable the managing and speechifying portion of the Federal party to concoct new schemes of de lay, and to bring in budgets of stuff to read ncinWRnin.

But the other day, the Northern Democrats in the House, were seen fighting side by side, with those of the South on the question of abolition. But oue Whig of the North was found in the same ranks. Now, what do we see? In the Senate, but one Northern Whig (Mr. Dixon) sustaining the rights of the South, aud with them, our rights as a nation.

Peakcm?, of Rhode Island, dated Sept. 7, 1835, uses this lauguage in reference to the federal patty: "1 heartily congratulate you upon your re election to Congress although upon many important public measures,! differed widely in opinion from you iu the last Congress; and although 1 do not flatter myself that we shall agree much better in the next, am yet conrinced that the paily the whig party ipiich has been these tiro years struggling to break you dov:n, the base compound of Hart ford convention federalism and roal arch masoniy. :s so lotleu viih ihe cartujAion oj both its flements, that I hail w ith joy the vic tory which you have achieved over it.

'1 his is a good portrait, drawn. up by a whig, who ceitainly should undetstaud ihe subject.

The plan is now lo keep these matters as much in the dark as possible, to blink the true grounds of controversy between the de mocratic pa-ty and its adversaries, and hold the principles, the designs and the policy of the whig party in reserve, until by a mixture of dexterity and good luck they get into power. Such was the policy recommended " by Watkins Leigh in the convention at which Harrison was nominated. It has since been carried out by putting Gen. Harrison in the charge of a committee whose business it not to allow their ward to plead to the real and I rue issue between the parties, nor to talk about banks and independent treasuries and such matters, which they rightly judge to be too deep for him and on which it is the policy of his party to preserve silence for the pre sent. Meantime the Whigs were sadly perplexed for "an issue." Whether Harrison was com petent for the post of President was an un promising issue; whether he and his party would pursue the policy most friendly to the national interests and liberties, was a fatal issue; the very issue they wanted to avoid. The W hig party are already on trial before the country for maintaining mischievous prin ciples, and recommending bad measures, and thev wanted to discover an issue which should shift the dispute to some matter of compara tively little consequence. So they are to talk of what Harnsou did at 1 ippecauoe, aud about the popularity of the last war, subjects whu h have no more connection with the real questiou, namely what Harrisou and his ad herents will do when they get into power, than the color of his coat, lhis is the great "issue," by clamoring about which, they think to make the public forget their real views aud designs.

If so, they may have observed the evident satisfaction testified by an arraigned felon, whose case was otherwise desperate, when there arose some collateral questiou which gave him a chance of escaping a fair trial. With what manifest delight did he perceive ihat the decision of the case was likely to turn upon some defect in ihe proceedings, some trifling controversy of forms and phrases which had nothing to do with his guilt or innocence, aud which would keep out. of sight the ugly question, whether he had pick etTa pocket or committed forgery!

Harrison in that war, a great point of contest, as, for example, the parading of such a banner as this through our streets . awakens the masses, both native and foreign born, to an investiga ion of Harrison's services, which involves the popularity or the unpopularity of last war, The issue will be made and met in this city, and I am as confident as any man can be of any future event, that the nigs will sweep all before them npon ii."

As at present advised, w e have no hesitation in giving it as our opin ion that the Whigs have carried a majority of the Legislature. That the Republicans will carry it this fall, we do not entertain a doubt. On Thursday night (the night of the elec tion) the Wh-igs had an avalanche of rumois, which seemed to bear down all before it. Not'to speak of the city of Richmond and county of Henrico, there were Hanover, Louisa, Caroline, Spotlsylvania. and Stafford, all were said lo have gone for the Whigs! The next day they were still more exulting Powhatan lost to us; then Cumberland, Prince Edward, Amelia, etc. all gone for the Whis! They were crowing aud bragging a ittle too much. They who do not know how to enioy success, do not deserve it. jsm tne evening came, and secured us Diawiddle, and saved Louisa. T.he evening car gave us back Stafford, aud reported Caroline (last for the Whigs) now very doubtful. Whenever Richmond could make herself felt, her great influence, has been exerted. She has made her mark all around her. Her pre ponderant vote has carried Henrico, Hano- ver, f owhatan, and, now ii appears, duck- iugham and perhaps Caroline! As the game stands, we have lost Hanover and Nottaway hv two votes.

Old Buckingham has indeed done nobly. She is almost, if not entirely reduced. She had given Flood, the Democratic candi date, a maioritv of 22 over Bondurant; and the highest Whig Delegate 504, the other Whig candidate and oue of the Democrats 503 each, aud the other Democratic candidate 5 u2. The two Whigs have the Sheriffs re ii n hm rair correspondent iuforms us that the election will be successfully contested. We have gained Dinwiddie and Amelia, nnrl it is reported, a delegate in Hhmpshire If so. the Whigs have gaiued 6, and the De mocrats 3 members. We wanted 3 to tie ihe T .orriibitiii e. at ihe last session. So that throwing out our chances in powhatan, Notto wav. Hanover, Spottsylvania, and Bucking ham, in all which counties it is said the seats will he contested, we now want 6 gains to divide the vole in the Legislature. We may lose as much as we gain. We may lose Roanoke, Braxton and Lewis, Smyth and We may gain Russell, Logan galia. Th? battle cannot, therefore, be defi nitely counted until the smoke has entirely blown away. It may be several days yet be fore we shall be able to collect all the returns. V e have fought under many disadvantages. The Whigs have resorted to such means as iitmuiuj K1- m uiuau iu eruDIOV. int have inundated the country with pamphlets ana nanaoius ot tne most deceptive character. The Stale has been overrun with electoral spouters, and wilh the Nos. of the Yeoman. which went forth before the Crisis could be got up to a'pply the antidote. The cry has been, Ihe low prices and hard times. The humbug of the standing army has operated agaiust us with tremendous force. It has alone KTttred the scale against us, in as many debatable counties as vatty be sufficient to turn the scale in the Legislature. Although this project was not very well suited to snc ceed in Congress; although the details in the bill, which was subsequently reported to Con gress, were not in all probability submitted at all to the President himself, yet their details have been perverted and pressed with an in genuity of misrepresentation and a constancy of purpose, which was calculated to deceive and mislead the people. In no one circumstance of the whole cam paign, were the tricks and deceptions of the Whig so manifestly exhibited, to our disad vantage and defeat. Put they stickled at no thinfr. A biosranhv of General Him'enn w ith the coarsest caricatures, was circulated under the franks of the Whig members of Congress, in all directions- The Old Do minion was insulted by these attempts the became the object of the most infamous ex periments in which, not only her own citi zens, but the members of other States dared to participate. On the very eve of the elec tion, a handbill was thrown, like a firebrand, into the State prepared by eight members of Congress at Washington; and containing the most garbled and insidious statements. A Virginia member of Congress did not hesitate to associate himself with seven members from other States to direct and control this proud ' Commonwealth; she who has been accus tomed lo give tne law, rather than receive it to teach others, rather than be taught by them. In this "Executive Commiftee" of the Secret Cabal, which has raised a privy purse to sub sidize the press, and to scatter the Madison ian, under the franks of the Whig members. there are a secret Abolitionist (Clark of New York) and the preparer of the Hartford Con vention resolutions (Sallonstall of Massacbu- seetts.) These men have bad the insolence to band toghether, to dictate to Virginia, in the exercise of her most important Drivilefre. on ihe eve of the election before any oppor tunity could have been obtained for counter acting tneir gross misrepresentations. But this is not the only instance where the Whigs ii i ... a . o nave caueu in me citizens ot other states to invade our sanctuary, and to control our opin ions. The same thing was done by Messrs. Vinton and Fisher, of Galliopolis, (State of Ohio, who attended the Superior Court of Mason county, and addressed the people. The same thing was also done by Hoffman, of Baltimore, who was associated with W. C. Rives in haranguing our citizens at Win chester. Not the least remarkable Dhenome- non of these unprecedented times, and one of the most indecent of the arfs of the Whigs, is in mis very ex-cenatcrs roaming about from county to county, where the election was considered doubtjul, and addressing and operating upon the voters to elect delegates who will re-elect him.

If these interposi tions, if these stratagems of the Whigs, do not rouse up the blood of the Virginians, then "tne race oi noDie nioods7' is not what it once was. They may then carry the State this spring. Our friends in different counties, who might not have been aware of the activitiy of their opponents, and the extensive machinery which they played off, may have been decieved in their speculations, and thus misled ourselves. But the mischief will now be corrected. "Tha second, sober thought, will prevail." In some of the counties, it appears that our friends battled nobly and deserve well of tho Republic. In others, the zeal of the Opposi tion has surpassed that of our friends. In many of the couuties, our committees have not even been organized; and each member has been fighting upon his own hook- But the Republican party will now be thoroughly aroused. The committees will organize, and enlarge their numbers. We have time enough before us to expose the machinations of the enemy ihe Tippecanoe Club in this city the extent of the franking abuses and tho devices which they are setting to work. The Democracy of this great State will never suffer their immortal principles to be under mined aud prostrated by such a party, with such a cause, with such a candidate, with means so reckless and so desperate. We call upon every man in the State to rouse himself. As for ourselves, we swear to devote ourselves, wilh whatever of energy we possess, that indomitable industry and buoyant spirit, which nothing has yet subdued, to the great cause, to those great principles, which have constituted the boast and glory of Virginia.
