For whethcrthis Ietter is true or false itdoes not by anj meaus invalidatc the tcstimony of oth ers, aud even Birney's avowed dcclarations evincing that heis an apostatc togeuuincab olitionism, and au ally of Locofocoism. Al though Birney must have secn thc Depnsi tion of Mr. Driggs which we publisbed two weckssince at tbe time he annouuccd thc forgery ofthe Ietter aforesaid.hcdocs not de ny its authcnticity. Then look at that Dcp- OMtton reader, yes!

Birney by Mr. Child who is amoug thc uoble heartcd pioneers oftbe Anti-Slave-ry cause in the Unitcd States. Considering the Ietter or Birney aforgery, it is merely cumulative.

DearSir I saw, a few bnurs ago, at Fair port, where tho stcamer stopped a fcw min utes, the Ietter purporting to be written by mo to Mr. Garland, dated Sept. 20, 1844. The letter.itsclf, is anabsolule forgery so do I believe the affidavits are as I'do not thiuk, Birdsall, Thayer and Dav'Is, would do so base an act, bad as thc times are. (Signed; JAMES G. BIRNEY, To the polls Whigs, Vermont e.rpects every Whig to do his duty and his whole duty on Tuesday next. LIBSRTY PAETY. It would seem to us that no position could be more prcpostcrous than that in which the Third Party have placed themselves before the public. They boast or themselves as be iug tlie cschisive friends ofthe slavc aud yet co-opcrate with Iocos who would extend and perpctuatc slavery & against the whigs who would limit and firmly opposa it, whilo Ioitdly profersing uncompromising hostility to both parties and to ducard ail interference with thoso mcastircs of natioual policy which dividetlicni as of little consequcnce incotnpar isou with abolition. Tlie libcrty men havc utiifbrmly poured their bitterest gall upon tha Whigs while they have applicd butasoft iin- peachment to their adversarics. Thus so emulous are they iu their hatred to tho whigs that they reject their aid and cliug to the bit terest rcvilerj or those very principles which form thc bnsis of their party organization. In a dcbate betwecn Mr. Giddinga and Judge King, reccntly in Ohio, tho former asked the lattcr if he would vote for Mr. Clay if there by he would prevent the aunexation of Texas: Judgo Kiug dcclarcd ho would not. Tho Third party leaders wcll kuow that the anncxaiion of Texas cau ncver tako cffect under the conditions which Mr. Clay has umtormly pretixed to it, and at tho same time they just as wcll knowthat Polk was brought lorwarJ lor the : pttrpose ofcarrying out annexation.and that his cause is drnouncd at tha South upon that vcry ground. But noth ing cau assuage their vincmotts hostilityto Mr. Clay, or indncelthe Icast fratcrnization with the Whigs in their assaults upou Polk the common enemy of their comrnon princi ples. It isvery futile for Libcrty party mento in sist that they have a candidate in the field whom they must support to sustain their principles. whcn tho most sanguino nmong them know their candidate cnunot succecd, and every vote east upon him euures to the bcncfit of a dcadly foe to their cause. To the conscicutious portion ofthis party we say uotbingcanbe moro wickcd than this. It is virtually, wiirully. rud wittlngly snpportinga candidate for the vcrypurpose of dcfeatiug the principles you prorcss. Abolitionists thus convict themselves ora base hypocricy in prctcnding to auamiable sympathy in their henits to the slave which all their actions and associatious belie. In relation to many or the more noisy leaders or the party we ucvcr had theslendcrest confidence in the tcndcr ncss ofthcir philanthropy. They havc far other objects in view than the cmancipation orthe poor degraded slave. Whelher thc do.wn-trodden blackman is botind or free wi nevcr break their licarts, if by agitating the public mind they can acquire powcr, popu- larity oremolumcnt by their political organi zation. How clcariy thc reccnt courseofMr. Birney indeclaring rorfreo trade, and per. mitting bimscir to becomc a loco candidate for thc Legislaturc of Micbigan, bclie his professors of limiting the operations of third- partyism to the abolition of Slavery? In'.o whata degrading alliance with locofocoism is he now dcbasiug it; an alliance which will promote the clcction of mento office who are pledgcd to sustain aud perpetuate the slave power in all its revolting relations. From the coursc pursuedby Birney mcn who cankloubt that they have far more at beart tho defeat ofthe Wbig ticketthan the protection ofthe slave or the exclusion of Texas from the grnsp of slave power. Such indeed is tbe inconsistent coursc moro recentiy'pursued by Birney and n majority ofhis leading (ol Iowcrs that many bclievc that they would not havoslavery peacibly abolisbed' ifit could be. Should agitation coasc,how manypress es , lccturers, and salarv-men. wonM lnR tlieir.cmolumeuts.and how many vaulting po litical aspirants will be doomed to witucss their brilliant prospeets blasted in the bud. We would bowever obscrve tbat our re marks are directed to the leaders ofthe Lib crty Party, who claim to be apostlcsin the, Holy warfare of jmpartial freedom. We know full well the honest purposesof multi mdesof their followers whosincerely desire to carry out tbe great plans or Phfantbmpy which far better mea .ir lho who now attempt ta ay them havosketcied out, aad we would'be the last to. chirgo them with that wantof,siu'cerity whiehwo do cot hesi tate.to apply to those who stand at the htlm of thirdparty'moveruents. With tho strong developements nor-before the people, who would have tho hardihoodto deny that thero exisu au affinity ia pnrposes and practices betwecn modern abolition leaders and tho lo oofocos to destroy the Vhig party and thus perbaps uninteniioualiy asto the abolitionists sweeo awav the only barrier whichnow stands inr the annexation of iu uj u C Texas. James G. Birney at lcast has surrendcred without a blush or a syropton of revulsion, to the meritricious embrace ofthe upholders of slavery. He has openly aroived his prcferences to Polk tho unbesitating and uuqualificd immediate annexationist,although he wcll knows that Mr. Clay and the Whig party are pledged under almost every exigcn r.y to oppose it. His leading supporters all over thc TJuion are virtually but perhaps un- consciouslv co-oosratinz as auxilaries of . a . v the slave party wbo are about to adopt a mcasure which if successful tfill sct at deG ancealltbe laboura of a crude philanthropy, and instead of striking off the chains of tbe slave, fasten manaclcs upon freemen. Should uot abolitionists look to this? Are they uot surrouudad by dangers and pitfalls by tbcse pretended friends, but real and practical eneinies I Aud will they go along with them in aconrse which will eventually extin- guish the last ray of hope intho prospeets of thc suffering slave. Mr. Clay at the North and South. Ncver was i public man so abused on grounds so cntirely oppositc to each other as HcnryCIay. At the north he is accused of apostacy.frora the great principleoi protection, aud in favor or annexation, while the vciy reverse of thesc chargcs is rung throughout the whole south with a most incendiary fury &so!emnoutcry orimpendingdnnger. Should Mr. Clay be elccted, says the Richmond En qtiirer "we sltall havc a still moro oppretsive tariff, and the friends of annexation may give op all hopcs ofachicviugthatobject. Noton ly will tbe south be cndangcred by thc non annexation of Texas, but the west, north and thc whole union will euffer material injnry from the sacrifice of this great qu'e'stiou to the selliih, unbridled umbition of one inan." Again says thc Editor of the Richmond Enquircr the great cbampion of Polkism, at thc south. "Aftcr Kentucky, what state in the south or southwest will Clay reccivc? ShalKit be our sistcr. North Cirolina? Shallshebe thc only state butlventncky, inthe south-west, to staud by Henry Clay the cbampion of a National Bank, to be locntcd in the North, aud to drain tho South thc fatlier ofthe high Protcctive Syjtcm, with its hand-uiaid-en Distribuiion, in all its corruptinginflucnce; the latitudinous constructionist; the oppo ucnt nfthe Auncxation or Texas, so cxtrcme that be rcquires a dcgrcc of concurrence "amounting to or approxitnatiug unauimity" A candidate whose most distmguished friends in the North and North West are seeking an alliance with the Abolitionists a man, who, if clected at all, must owc his suc cess to that dark coalition as cvideuced by thc Iate clcction in Ohio, whcre thc Whigs, if successful, are indebted to the aid ofthe Abolitionists? We ask the South to paitse, cre they vote furllenry Clay with all his ber eies, and "entanglitig alliances" with the cnemies ofthe South!" And uow Fcllow-Citizens, we ask you to peruso and ponder well upon the scnlimcnts and spirit of tbe following extracrdinary doc ument, circulatcd as a hand-bill in Virginia in which Mr. Clay is most furiously assailcd at thc South for those very principles and purposes which all true Whigs among us so so bighly applaud, but which his cnereics at the North would most bascly deuy him.
