I die wiihout remarse. I desired but the well-being of my country, in lhe late insurrections. Myviewsand actions were incere, and were not tarnihed hy any crime thatdishonors hua.anity ; and "wbicìi Crimea are but too common amidst the cf. ' lervescencc ol unbndled pas&ion. Since IT or 1S years, I bave taken an active pari in ali popular measures, and e ver did so, with the aincerity of conviclion that mv efforts nave 1een for the in.lependence oV uijr iruow coumrymen. e Iiave been inus tar umortunate.

A deep'pre fentimenl, lhe tranquility of my conscience l 7 . . a ; tn:s is what fii.s my breast wuh jov, ecn while erery thin? about me is désolation and torrow.

Erery thicg in Windsor immediately. I would by no means be understood even to insinuale, that it would be possihle for a Jury chosen from the freemen of Vermont, from the hard handed ycomanry of the land, to rpn- dera;rtrriaMerdict: no ihey would most certaihly decide like honorable men. no. cording tothe evidence given them incotirt. But mark my words, there is something unusual in this affair. Her Maiestv nfìi. cers are daily suborning witnesses'for lhe purpose ol swearing against me and the umortunate but mnòcent West. Some are hired, othersareinformed that unless they proeeed, to Windsor and swear so and so, thej wil! immediately beimniisonr-d V,. Briùsh gold and British dungeonsare used for the purpose of suborning witnesses. And in addition lo ali that, and whatis more surpnsing stili, is lhe faci that sub poenas are issued to which are attached ine names of thePrsident of the U. States, me non. uoger IJ. Taney, C. Justice, and Jesse Gore clerk, and these same subpoe nas have been placed in the hands oflhe Montreal Polite Offieert, and those oflìcers nave come into the U. S., and served them. And what is stili more sickeninir tn man of republican feeling, and that which I m sensible will chili the blood in the veinsof every true hearted American is the fact, ihat in connexion with, and on the same piece of paper on which the sub. poena is writieri, will be found the follow- tnrv W L, j -a -re njorm you that your ex- to be tAof at W....I I .1 . . . 7 'uuiu noi me grey fieaded nalnot at that time bave turned from sudi informa lioii with disgnsi.'

And biiilllein and humiliating as it niay be, I fear it is ali for the wretched and vain purpose of ajijieasing the vvtaih of the iiungry Uritish lioness.

If so they have already discovered the secret ofthis nnair and mourned over the unhappy State lo which the American Republic at this rate is fast approaching.
