NeW Jersey. The electorial vote will
be cast for Van Buren. Although! British
"Whiggery Jas triumphed for two years past
in tho Legislature, yet, that was alone to
bo imputed to the way in which the State
Was apportioned. The singular spectacle
was presented, at successive elections, that
while tho Legislature shewed a federal vote
tho aprrreeale majority of tho whole state
vras Democratic. Therefore, was it, that
Uio attempt of the British Whigs to force
men into seats to which they had never
been elected, recoiled so terribly upon them.

In pursuance of the liotico given tho del-'

clock on Tuesday morning in the Musical
Association. Felix Grundy, esq. calfed the!
Convention to order, mid then moved that
Govornor Hill of New Hampshire take tho
chair and that Geneial Dix of New York
be appointed Secretary pro tern. which
was agreed to.

Mr. Grumly then rose, and proceeded to
make somo rematks in favor of a strict
scrutiny being instituted into the qualifica
tions and rights of gentlemen presenting
themselves here as delegates liom tlid re
spoctive States, which they profess to re
present. He argned that an investigation
was necesary, in order to prevent injustice
beinu douo to the party, as had been the
caso four ycars'ago, in regard to Tennessee
He said, that this Convention ought to como
out with a clear, candid, and true declara
lion of tho sentiments of the Republican
party as here represented. If they did so
and should be right in the principles avow
cd, there could be no doubt that an honest,
freu, and independent people would sustain
them. Ho repeated, that if this Conven
tion were frank with the people, they would
he supported, if regarded as being in the
right. But they would at least go down
under the conscientious conviction of having
performed, what they bolioved to be their
duly. However, whether right or wrong
let us tell them what wo think, and not be
guile or denoivo them by acting contrary to
out sincere belief. (Loud cheering.) Hav
ing said this much, he would now tako his
seat: but he would address the Convention
on this snbject on another occasion.
Mr. Frazer expressed his hope that th
Delegates from Tennessee, Mr. Grundy
would proceed witti his remarks, tie re
ferrcd to the number of Delegates from th
State of Pennsylvania, and rematked that
it gave a majority of 00,000 lor Uen. Jack
son, and asserted that at the coming Presi
dential election, the Democracy of the land
of Penn, could not be beaten by Tory Fed
eralism. The whole Democracy of the
State, were here represented, and they
would speak trumpet tongucd to tho people.

They w'ero the Whigs of tho Revolution

nafo or just to deal in such harsh denuncia
tions; but this 1 must say, tuat wnen you
uo find such men, nineteen out oi twonty
of them do not belong to our parly; and
that is not all. Man who do evil, shun the
light they do not want their deeds to be
Bean. No w, whether it is a consciousness
or not that they are acting wrong, he would
not say but so it is, that the Whigs are
unwilling to disclose to their countrymen
tho principles which governed tlicm.or in
deed whether they have any principles at
nil. Is it not fair to infer that they well
know that if they disclose their opinions
and the objects for which they aro contend
ing, that tho people will never put them in
offico I While casting my eyes around tne
Toom, I see my Ohio fiiends and this re
minds me of Cincinnati and the manner in
which the Whigs manage their affairs there.
At the closo of Oie late war with Great
Britain, was there a man, woman, or child,
in that city, who ever thought of taking up
tho present Whig candidato for the Presi
dency ? Now, I do not wish to detract'
from tho merit3 of that individual, for I
wish that ho was wiser arid bettor, and more
merilorous than he is; but let us sec how
ho is to be made President. It will be re-
collocted by all of us that when the name of
Andrew Jackson was announced tor the
Presidency, tho nomination, like a blaze,
extended through the whole country, and
never ceased to show its light till tho illus
trious hero and statesman was elevated
to tho Chief Magistracy. It is truo that
art, contrivances, &c. pievcnted his election
at the first trial; but tho next time nil the do
vices of iho Federal party were ineffectual
to prevent it.
But to return to tho State of Ohio and
tho city of Cincinnati. The Whigs there
havo a candidato whom they want to make
Prasident, and of whom tour years ago ve
ry little was heard; bnt within the last few
months no mortal man lias ever crown so
vastly as he. From a plain honest clerk of
a county court, who interfered with nobo
dy & with nobody interfered, he has crown
to be a astonishingly great man, destined in
their opinions to carry all before him. But
tboirparl, for avoiding till correspondence
on.that subject; fur whether tlley wiolu one
wnyTor the other, they would bo placed in
an awful predicament.

the Convention with a few pertinent to-
