Tpere are many things ia the proceed ings of this meeting which we think would be J reclaimed by a large portion of the people composing it, if questioned ia their individual capacity. Does if beeocfe lie- puUicum, widiout one panicle of proof to sustain the charge, to stigmatise One- half of their ftlluw citizen as iaiX- lovght Federalists, or to apply to thea any oilier term of indignity or reproarh; merely because they honesdy differ from them ia their opinion of public measures and jublie,uen? . The Ch resohition in particular, we cannot but consider as unbecoming libe ral aud sober men. If the Governor did buy 13 doz. Towels he bought them with his own money and for Lis own use, and the public will suffer no detriment. An ice house is considered a necessary appendage to almost every gentleman's premises, who has col the advantage of a cool spring; and shalt s&cb a convenience be denied to the residence of the Gover nor .of your state, cfpcclajty aben the whole com does not exceed scusty-jve dollars? For it is not true that it cost 300 dollars, as some of the pariiean prints have stated.' "And the Governor has built " a chicken coop,', too!! r Really, can so ber men bring tp vTh as a charge rgaiost the Governor of a state, that he should provide a place to keep the chickens for his family's dinner? We do not ku'o'w why Got. Dudley's name is lugged into these proceeding; his misdeeds, if be committed any, cannot be placed to the account of Gov. Morehead. But if Gov. Dudley expended $2000, or any flier sum illegally or improperly, why was his account allowed? Surely there were Democrats enough fa4t:e Le gislature to watch over the people s inte rests, even if the Wli'gs were too blind or too wicked to attend to their duty. The 4ih resolution is somewhat equi vocally expressed. It may mean some thing t'ks the forcible, mobrike, revolu tionary proceedings, of which some por tions of our countrv have exhibited me lancholy etftaiplcs; if such be its rhein 'fig it cannot te too strongly condemned But it- by it is meant a vigilant watchful ness over the conduct of our rulers; such peaceful, constitutional and legal proceed ings as Vecome the ritiftns of a free rc public; then, 'we say, the resolution ex presses nodiing but what the people ought to have done long ago; they would there by have saved millions of dollars. -We will take ocrasion soon to g'ven l;st of some of the Iage in, us wlK-h st'cii vigi lance ro'g'i t have iatvt'd. , .- The Whigs a-e 'laed with extra va gance in giving to Gen. tlaruson's w'dow his whole eas eala-i-, thong'i he was removed by death at the end of one short mdivth. - This is but the repeih'ofi ofi whit iKis appeared jn a"! t5e Loco Foco papers of the country; but for Utntil men to bri' it up as a charge aga'ost the Wh'g party, show an utte' ignorance of the practice and history of the' Govern ment. We need not look farther back tlian to Gen. Jackson's adininistraiion for examples tn sauain he appropriation. Joho Ra-it'olph tras appointed inuis;erto Russia, but became dissatisfied Immediate ly, and left tlie capital afie a residence of nine day only, and returned home af- tlis w idiiw of Gen. Harruon a year's sa- isry few services which he did cot lire ta perform, why are all. tLcse iastsnre cf similar libenlity, p recused ke er tie ad- minktrsuons of Cea. Jackson and Mr. Via Eurra, passed over in perfect silence? Is it because one was act f Whigs, and the ctliers the acts of DemocraU? Alike tioadiUed and indiscreet is the assertion, that the Whigs hate borrow. ed money cntil they have sock the credit of the thrd Stales. Of the nettuity of die loin we are not !ii?poed now to speak; we Lave heretofore shown that it grew out" of the action of the preceding administration -the annual average cx peiMitufe of Mr. Van Bareaa adminis tration having exceeded the income near ly seven millious cf dollars. But it is not true that the credit of tlie United States has been sunk. Quotations ia the New York papers s.hw that United States stock is now selling jar hi thai city. ; , " Retrenchment and Reform" which the' Whigs have preached, they are now actively engaged in "carrying out ia practice. The appropriation bills for tlie year 1811, were pawed by the Van Bu ren Congrej before the Whigs came'in- to power. The present session is then fore the first opportunity (he Whigs have had to prove their sincerity; and if anv one will take the trouble to look over the progress of the appropriation bills fur the year 1842, in either house, he will find that great reductions have been made in all tlie departments. - la tlie single arti cle of stationary for members of Con- giess a sum will be i?ved, when compar ed with like expenditures during llr. Van Buren's administration, more than sufficient to compensate foi tlie" vcar'a sa lary which the Whigs are accused of squandering upon tho widow of Gen. Harrison. How a portion of tlie said stationary was disposed of may be tMs cd at by the guilt edges as well as the quality of the very paper upon which these resolutions were written as welt as a shrewd guess'given as to who is tlie real author of th'Vii. ; "? We subscribe fully to tftf doctrine, that it is the right of the peeple,.cr any por tion of them, to meet together to consult upon such measures as they may think best calculated' to advance the general welfare; but we think it unquestionably the duty of those who set themselves up as leader $ of the people, to see' to ' it that the matters they set forth arc based in truth and fair dealing, lest it should hap pen according to the wise proverb " When the blind lead the blind, both will fall into the ditck Uccc go ouUa wS eerily 5r.
