after Una display, that Vermont ie not hitched on

of Vermont will never bow to Mr Van Jiuren, no

tnadoofinz as they havo done, all the nomniitia-
tiona of the Antiinaeon-, the Whigs havo evinced a
spirit of liberality which is highly creditable to
! them, and which demands a respectful rccongnition
at our hand. The Jackson party, if they want to
put down "secret societies and open monopolies,"
would do well to lay aside their strortg ultra federal
propensities, and go the- lamo ticket , nnd thus "re
deem the lost character of tlio State."
From the Hurtinglon Free 1'rtit.
The proceeding of the two convention!, which
met at Montpcllcr on the '24th uli. will be found in
our columns to-day, and wo refer to them with
pridr and satisfaction, ns proving to tho world
thai ict hnvo inner doubted that Vermont is true
to herself, true to the country, and true to ttic
principles which moved our fathers to resibt oppres
sion. Tho same spirit which nerved their arms to
resist encroachments of Now Vork upon our terri
tory, still exUts, among their sons, and will repel
with equal scorn the present and all future attempts
to palm upon us the corrupt system of New York
politics. Ho it therefore known to you, O powers
that be, we, tho l'cnplo of Vermont worship not
your dola wo covet not your "spoils."
It no a' only remains for tho f-cvoral counties to
