Wo observe that our neighbor is to publish a

electioneer openly nnd abovebonrd, in mir regit

tlio " Campaign Watchman" is tlio regular

cheap cnougli ; wo mean to havo it good, fair,
nnd none the less efficient on that account.'
Whigs ! send in your orders.
The Whigs of Vermont in Coun
cil. The State Convention, at Rurlincton. on
Wednesday Inst, was by far tholnrL'Wt nolitical
convention which has been assembled in Vermont
einco tho groat mass meeting of 1810; its do
liberations were harmonious. Tlio only ques
tion m Vonnont is, whether Scott and Gra
ham fcliall lead by Itn tlionsand or twenty thou
sand rotes' Wo co in for the huiliest number :
in fact, with a good cause, good candidates, and
tho right spirit which evidently prevails among
the people t Vermont, there is no sort of ex
cuse fur being content with n small victory
ermimt should ho tho Banner State. Whigg !
lot us w in that honor fur her. It can bo done j
and it is for you to any that it shall be dono.
Wo will not undertake to say exactly how
many whigs wero assembled at lliirlmgton.
Somo Bay five thousand, others ten thousand, and
others moro yet. Thcro wero enough there to
show that the right spirit is abroad, and to give
assuranco ol an old fashioned whig victory.
Washington County turned out nobly : it really
looked as though Montpelicr and Northliold had
sent every whig voter, whilo other towns, (wo
suspect all the towns in the county,) worn well
represented. Withal, tho Montpehcr Hand, uni
ted with the Hurlington Jt.mil, (both under the
dircction.of Mr. W.m. 1'. Baouer,) added materi
ally to tho pleasantness rf tho occasion, nnd won
golden yinioiw from tlio crowd.
Tho faTATE Ticket comprises men of unim
peachable character, good abilities', and largo ex
perience In the public service. Mr. FAinii.tNks

Sir. Howes was unanimously nominated by the
Committee. Tho voting proceeded without dis-
cussion, and 'vithout any-persons beinj; named
as candidates, and the several ballots were,
thcroforc, a genuino cxprossion of tho preforon
ces of tlio Committee. Tho ticket w as uccepted
by a unanimous vote of tlio Convention, and
heartily commended for tho support of tho peo
ple. The Resolution will speak for themselves
inlaneuauc not tu bo misunderstood. Thuv re..
quiro no slavish submission to any form of words,
no indiscriminate approval ot any body Plat
formbut embraco solid, enduring, correct, con
stitutional Principles, and measures of sound
roucr, which the people of Vermont havo un
waveringly maintained in the past, and wo doubt
not will always maintain. It should also bo a
matter of just pride with every Whig of Ver
mont, that theso principles nnd measures, which
havo so long been cherished by Vermont, nro
now also, substantially, tho principles of the whig
party of tiro nation, having boon promulgated by
the National Convention, and in the letter of
Gen. Scott, The resolutions wero concurred in
by every member of tho Committee, nnd unani
mously adopted by tho Convention.
The speeches wero of n high order of excel
Icncc, eo far as wo had tho privilogo of hoaring
them. Mr. Morrill nnd Mr. Russell acquit
ted themselves hnidsomely and to tlio entire ac
ceptance of tho Convention, iu the reatud and
hearty cheers abundantly procd. We did not
hear Gen. Coomiis, nor that excellent man, nnd
excellent whig to boot a genuino specimen
of tho .iroiiu Aomo, class Vermanier tlio Rev.
nnd ilon. Alvmh Samn; but wo will be bound
that the crowd wero not disappointed. It was
our lot to hear tho response ol Gen. Coombs in
tho Philadelphia delegation at tho Baltimore
Convention, on tho presentation of the medallion
ot the dying 1'atriot, Henri Clat. A more
touching and eloquent speech wo never l,r.l
and wo could well atford to Jet it stand as the
last, to us, of the dUtinguished orator.

The Vermont Watchman and the
ti u-s. thn editor of the Patriot, wo believe,
who once on a time insinuated, that it was rath
er nn up-hill business for the editor of the
Watchman to tell tho truth. Whether tins inca
pacity was the result of mental infirmity or moral
nhlinnitv. was not hinted, but tho better opinion
at thnt time, seemed to be, that so far ns poli
tics are concerned, ho was much moro knave
than fool. ...

Hurlington Sent.
Saxe of the Sentinel wo havo been accustom
ed to regard as a gentleman and a wit. Why
docs ho now exhibit himself as n blackguard
and an ass? That is tho problem to bo solved
and not n difficult ono. Tlio NowVork Tribnno
denounced tho Platform of tho Whig National
Convention as n very bad thing n thing to bo
rejected and spit upon ; therein, wo think, doing
groat injustice to the Platform, and playing
straight into the hands of the oncmy. We
therefore ventured to combat the opinion of the
Tribune, anil to say i
I. That the Platform surrendered the absurd
dogma of the "finality" men, by fatly conceding
the right to legislate upon, modify and amend the
Ifitgilivc slat late, so as to remedy defetls and
prevent abutei. Inasmuch as this concession
fully covered and adopted the doctrine which the
Whigs of Vermont declared last year, and
which the Watchmnu has ever sanctioned, we
thought it a groat point gained, and a tiling to
bs commended.
2. That the Platform was not a one-sided,
slabnUM affair, giving to Slavery the plank, and
Freedom only the liark. We claimed, and now
claim, that it binds loth, the AoiMandM South
the first, to entrench upon none of tho lights of
tho South, and the last to entrench upon none of
the rights of the North. In a word, the North
is to let Slavery alone, in tho States if Acre li is
a doctrine as old as the anti-slavery Societies;
and the Soulh is not to attempt to put slavery
irAtre if t nof. And Una wo ventured to set down
ns a grand point gained to freedom. The Whigs
of Vermont have, in years past, thought it worth
while to "sot up tlicir Ebenezcr" pretty stillly
against tho extension of Slavery, by Jlnnexalion
or in any other mode; and now, when the South
ern Whigs voluntarily bind thenmhes against
slavery agitation, and by consequence against
slavery extension and annexation, our notion is
that Vennonters had not bettor abuse them, nor
" spit upon'' Iho net that binds them to a course
so much in harmony with that of the Whigs of
Vermont. We nro most decidedly in favor of
letting Ihvm go just as far ns they please in the
right direction
:l. We IHd, and now hold, that the Platform
is a good ndvanco, in the doctrines of I'roterlion
to .Imeriean industry hy specific duties, ami of In
ternal Improvements of a national cJiaraclrr.
And, finally, wo exhorted tlio Whigs to receive
these advances favorably, and thus to test the sin
cerity oflhoBo who have mado them.
Such is tho pith and marrow of tho Watcl;
man's article on tho Platform; and now, tehat is
it that troubles the Sentinel t Ah! it is an out and
out dough fuend" finality" organ. Discussion of,
and much more, propoctivo legislation upon, tlio
fugitive slave law, gives its amiable editor tlio
nightmare. Ho is doubtless horrified at tho
thought that the defects of that law may possibly
bo obviated, and thnt tho outrageous abuses of it
may possibly bo corrected ; and most especially
horrified at tlio prospect that the tricked ll'higs
aye, even Suulficru Whigs will by and by perpe
trate such a horrid thing, such un awfully un
democratic act, ns to amend the fugitive slate laic I
So Mr. Saxe sinks the gentleman and snaps at the
Watchman in a very unamiablc stylo. Tint, no
undertake tailless, is the sccrctof the trouble of
tho Sentinel man ; and, ns if to put ua exactly
upon the right scent, the Sentinel itself lots slip
this :
" Respect theso laws until lime and experi
ence," iio. Fine talk this for a man who imme
diately after tho pasaace of these laws he profess
es to respect, exerted all his influence to procure
tho enactment of a State law directly in conlhct
ith thum. " Until time and experience, &c."
How long time elapsed between the passage of
the lAjinprointse .Measures and tho Habeas Cor
pus .let, and bow much experience, had we. in
this State, as to tlio workings of that law ntthat
tuno. Hurlington Sentinel.
The " Habeas Corpus act" of Vermont "d'l-
cctly in conflict with" the fugitive slave Uw
all tlio Watclimm's " influence to procure the
enactment'' of that ! So says tho Sentinel ; nnd,
so saying, tho Sentinel confossos that its wrath
is kindled because tlio plank of thn Whig Plat
form, in tho Watchman's view, istiof just as thn
Sentinol wishes to haio it. Well, wo aro not
sorry to say that the Sentinel can get no relief
from tho Watchman. Yea, the Watchman is
just as firm for tho modification of tho fugitive
slave law, ns it over lias been; and just
as firm for the Habeas Corpus .'let, as it ever
has been not, ns tlio Sentinel incorrectly nays,
as a law in conflict with tlio act of CuncrcM.
but as a very proper state regulation for tho pro
tection of its own free inhabitants. And what
is more, Mr. Sentinel, we shall insist that thu
fugitivo elavo law and Habeas Corpus, both
come within a most excellent doctrine, promul
gated by Gen. Wi.m-iei.u Scott, and also by
tho lato Whig State Convention of Vermont, to
"The Liws or the Land, to be faith fullu
eiecutiJ in oleJitnce to the eitculivt aiul judicial
uepanmenis, each within its (Jo.nstitutiuml
Thu Habeas Corpus 1et stands for adjudica
tion ; and, if its opKnenu9 aro correct, that act
also brings into adjudication the Fugitivo Slavo
Ijiw. Wo say then, (cf it ifmui: lot us Into
the action of tho "judicial department ? let us
liavo the lawn both of Congreas and the State,
" each tcithin its constitutional tplterc" nnd re
spect them both.
It may bo cruel in the Watchman to adminis
ter this dtwe; but, by way of alleviation, wo
suggest, that if It is moro than tho editor of tho
Sentinol can boar, ho can follow tho cxamplo of
his illustrious loader on a memorable occasion,
(unintentional, wo havo no doubt,) and yaiuf.

Gen Scott is himself a member of the Epis

Georgetown. The " Nativism" of Scott consist
ed simply in tho fact that, somo years apo. in
common with many other good men, Wings and
Democrats, he was alarmed at the frauds which
were perpetrated by corrupt Americans upon em

Tho effects of this order, as well may be con

SotiMfni Opposition to Gen. Scott. A number
nf ultra sUvTicratic Southern journals bitterly
oppose Gon. Scott, on tho ground thnt his elec
tion will bo virtually a triumph of Free Soil
principles over tho domination of Slavery. For
instance, The Journal and .Messenger, ( Macon,
(la.) says :
" We not only disapprove tho nomination of
General Scott, but we conceive it to be tho duty
of every Southern man to tiio every legitimate
means to effect In defeat Party prejudice
and honor of the South 'compels us to op.

resolutely, without regard to the consequences.
We cannot aobmit this question of the support
of General Scott to a Convention of tho Whig
or of miy other party, nnd agree to abide
, s decisions. We would as willingly submit
our consciences tn the keeping of another."
The tVashville I nion utters its cry of alarm,
say nig :
" The most vit il interests of the South arc at
stake in this cont'-st. If the Scott and Seward
wing of the whig party triumph, the offices of
the Government will be filled with the enemies
of Slaver)'."
J he liiunfc h ( M !. L.) tlnndard. finds a cause ot
terror in the prospect of '.lii; it suys
Wc told you, Wliurs of North Cambria,
mouths iico, that if Scott should be nominated
nnd elided, Sticard would succeed him. and our
opinion in this matter is confirmed by a New

for your candidate " REMEMni:n the Fall ok
the Roman F.MeinE !" And remember those
other words, ns true as they lire itartlin'r, 'a vole
for Scott now,' is 'a vote for Sewaid in 3l.' "
This des'nt exactly square with the opin
ions expressed by the Massachusetts Free Holl
ers the other day. In their meeting Theodore
Pnrki r, who would'nt go for Scott anyhow,
thought he might go for Seward in Ifjti. There
seems to be somo confusion on this subject in

he learned to prefer Freedom. It f trtio, too,
that Northern Whig?, who wero born and nurs
ed as Freeman, and who, wlnlo tbey havo been
taught to reapeot, and will respect, all the rights
of the people and states of the South, yet main

we any it is true, that multitudes of such Whigs
did prefor Gon. Scott. They will support him,
loo, with none the less zeal, now that tho at
tempt is mado to to crush him, because ho has
dared to think hs Washington and Jekeerson
thought; and crush him too, because Jrce-boni
.Yotthern men support him! Never was the
black feather more boldly t-hown than in this
proclamation ; like tho black flag of the pirate",'
it evidently means defiance and death to all who
will not surrender without firing a shot. Fortu
nately the strength of thuse ten wrathy gentlo
men is not equal to their malieo. Tho North
will still voto for Gen. Scott, and the South will
not givo him up. Indeed, if the Southorn Whigs
icere to give up Gon. Scott on such grounds.it is
by no means certain that tho free states would
not elect him still It U a terrible game, for tho
South, which those ten craiy Congressmen sug
gest. Probably, however, few will tako tlio
trouble to do any thing but ridkulo their folly.
As an offset, wc learn from the N. Y. Tribuno
that L. D. Campbell, Wm. F. Hunter, and John
W. Howe, (members, of Congress who could not
go for Taylor in Mfi.) all go for Scott; ond al
so Cassius M. Clay, of Kentucky, mid a host of
his friends. Tho proclamation of Stephens &

The old Folly.
It seems that tho locofoco politicians hive
learned little wisdom from tlicir past reverses.
Thoy attempted to break down Harrison by rid
ictilc, and forgeries, and lies : tho result was,
that k People took the good old man into their
own hands, and thoroughly did they avenge the
Insults put upon him. Again thoy tried tho
samo game 011 Tailor, and with a like result.
And now it is Wi.iFif.ti Scott who is tho object
of their malice and mondncity. So bo it : all is
safe. Slwkspoaro expressed tho sentiments of
every gojd man in this :
" tfl am IraSiirMl liy tnnftlf. wMcli neilhtt kllflw

The dirnllttff nf my doing, tt m nj,
'TU i! Ul ( fUfl,fd tW lrr.lt
TAtt rif (N0 null ga lArtnfA."
The locofoco forgery, to which wo allude, is
fotiryoars old, having been perpetrated in I8I8,
just before thu Whig National Convention, and
for the ptlrposo of preventing tho nomination of
tho old veteran at' that time. It consisted of a
letter on Native Americanism, falsuly purport
ing to be tho production of Gon. Scott, and that
forged letter has just been rovived by the .Yew
York Vreningl'ost a newspaper which shows
u own audacity by professing;- soilism under
the l ig nf "l'ieret If AYmf"
We observe thai the St. .Ilbans Democrat and
the Vermont Patriot have given currPney to this
forgery. Gen. Dix, of New York, did the same
thing in a late letter, but on being apprized of
his error, and satisfied on "roing the letter which
Gen. Scott did write, he ery promptly and hand
somely corrected the mistake. If it is too much
to expect locofoco newspapers to imitate the
good example of Gen. Dix, we suy hi them do
their itorst. Gen. Scott has long born accustom
ed to meeting cnomies, and always has had a
singular habit of vawpiishing them.
Wm. E. Robinson, Esq., of Now York city,
exposes this forgery in the following letter to
the editor of the New York Times. Robinson
is himself an Irishman, who understands thor
oughly what he is writing about
The Evening Post of Saturday publishes a let-
tor written, I suppose by some Loco Foeo, on the
"object of " nativiem, which It attributes to
Gen. Scott.
It is true that Gen. Scott, some ten years ago,
was asked his opinion concerning some proposed
changes in tho Naturalization laws, to which he
replied, suggesting anions other things, that
Irishmen, Germans, and others of foreign birth,
who served in the Army or Navy, should be ad
mitted to the pr.vdeges of citizenship on a short
er term than that now cstiblished by law, (rive
years,) and suggesting, also, other alterations to
prevent illegal voting, &c , but distinctly object
ing tu the organization of the Native party, then
sustained by the loco Foco majorities of thu
suburban mnnicip ilities of Philadelphia county,
ivhirti t-ooii1ti.it in ttie htirtim'f of Cnlne. lio Im.rli.
! es by the I.oco Foco mob o? the Northern Eib
1 ertie, Southwark, iV.c. He distinctly took
I ground against the anti-catholic feature of the
mini iiii'it , nnd refused to recnifniz.e any organi
zation which wncM exclude natural izeil citizens
from the organization.
Tins letter li is never been published, but some
1 of its siterrcstions h i ing become public, some
1 Pnemy of Geu Scott, published pretended ex-
tracts fiom it. on the eve of the Whig Philadel
phia l omentum, in which language never used
by Gen. Scutt was interjiolated. '1 he forgery
was afterwards enlarged, and illuminated by ty
pographical displ ly, mid thrt double forgery is
published us genuine in the Post of Saturday !
Now, the Post knows that Gea Scott is the
only man living, who, with his own hand, pulled
down the British Flag in a war wrged to vindi
cate the rights of naturalized citizeds: and that
he received, tn their defense, the british bullets
which he still carries 111 his body. It knows that
Gen. Scott caused a number of British soldiers
to be held as hostages for the safety of the Irish
men taken prisoners on the Canadian frontier,
causing the British Government to understand
that an English soldior wauld be hanged for ev
ery Irishman executed. It knows that Gen.
Scott, four years ago, wroto a letter which is
published in his lffe, which may be had for thir
ty cents, at the store of A. S. Barnes, No. 01
John street, in which he says of the naturalized
" Certainly it would be impossible for me to
recommend or support any mc&suro intended to
oxcludn them from a just and full participation
in all civil and political rights now secured to
them by our Republican laws and institutions."
'I he Post knows tint this is Gen. Scott's pres
ent position on the mtnrilizntion question, nnd
lyei 11 passes mm over and publishes the forgerv.
It knows too that Geu. Pierce h-longs to 'a
1 party, which, when he chooies to urge them tn
1 do it, polled more votes in New Hampshire than
I tho Whigs and Free Soilers combined, jet et.JI
1 persists in including ti large portion of natural
ized citizens from office on account of their re
I ligious opinions.

nof use. The attachment of Bed and Cylender
and Crank motion. 1 do use. But these 1 did
not copy from him, for, as distinct principle,
they are older than he and I both. The mim
