cause of the vest blow-up in the ranks of the Dr.

a reference to the inhospitable welcome

the free people of the North gave utter

anticheers.] We have been told by the
Union, the
,organ of the government at
Washington, that it was wrong for the
4inople of the North to meet and discuss
the Wilmot Proviso. Mr. Ritchie, the
editor of that journal, is a man of talent '
and of agreeable manners. lint he mis
takes his vocation if lie thinks it any part
of his province to lecture the freemen of
New York. [Cheers.] Ile has been re- j
lietitly translated [laughter] from Virginia

tsristie family. His predecessor was an a
mathand had led the democracy through
many 'successful battles. lint what has
Mr. Ritchie to show, that he has, in any
degree, contributed either to the harmony,
nuuibets, or triumphs of the democracy !
Arkansas was once so strongly democratic
(hat you could hardly find a Whig with a
scarch warrant; [laughter] and vet it is
now no ni the dominion of the Whigs !
Tionieesee—the home of the President,
and once a pillar in the democratic temple
lapsed, and r,nw rests in the arms
of Whigery ; although there has been ex
ecutive patronage enough bestowed upon
~lierj e itizens, within two years, to have
converted Massachusetts herself! [Great
laughter.] And Massachusetts, whose
democracy had more than once triumphed,
duringing the editorial reign of Mr. 'filch

expressed the hope that if the people of
New York were to elect a tutor from south
blithe, Potomac, they might have the usual
privilege of making an examination of his
qualities themselves. The editor of the
llniUtrstays that the ordinance of 1787 is
aini“tn terpolation" in the democratic creed.
'This is not the first time this gentleman
Itatdenoonced democratic measures as "in-
tdpolitions." lle seems to deem the
democratic creed to be composed, like the
deed of the Synod of Dort, of a certain
number of Articles. revokable only by the
`Brtod itself ! [Laughter.] Mr. Ritchie

Hut would any citizen of Neu• York, if he
boeu called upon to maintain that pro-,

! • Mr. V. B. referred to the charge in the
Argus, that himself and friends were act
' with the Whigs. As an offset to this
charge, he read S. Strong's celebrated affi
davit, amid cheers and laughter; and after
stating that it had never been contradicted,
he proceeded to say that when it was de
nied, he would bring forward further evi
dence, and prove to the democracy that,
fur the second time, Mr. Croswell had
got his foot in the grating. [Great laugh
ter.] 'Mr. V, B. denied that the simple
fact that the ,Whigs concurred with the
radical democracy in regard to the s Wilinot
Proviso, was any evidence either that it or
its advocates were federalists. But for the
AVltigs, the law in relation to the new con
stitution could not have passed. lint for
NVltig votes, the new constitution could
not have been adopted. The conserva-1
lives opposed them both. Why were
not the radical democrats branded RS
in those cases ? The man, said

Ile would as soon think of rennin; away
from the Mexicans because a reinforce
ment of Whigs were coming up to the res
cue, as to run away from the support of
the proviso because the Whigs were in fa
vor of it. [Prolonged cheering] , Instead
of branding such support art evidence of
- its federal character, he wouldudeent it
evidence of its righteousness. No wise;
man will repudiate a good thing because it
has the countenance of-theee-widt-whom
he differs generally. [Cheers.]lle doubt
ed whether all the brave men to Our army
in Mexico were democrats. At York
town, Chippewa, Buena Vista aid Uher
ubuSco, Whigs - fought bravely. If the
'crimson soil of those battle fields should
be analyzed, there, would be found some
spots of Whig blood. [Cheers] He
would deein him a craven at heart, if he
should find himself hesitatiug to admit the
gallantry of Gen. Taylor. simply because
Ise was a Whig. [Cheers] There rite
times when all good men rally to the sup
port of correct principle. He was the last
man to be driven off from a righteous mea
sure, because he found it supported' by
men connected with other denommation&
He had been accused of leading the dem
ocrats astray in their contest. He would
guarantrahat those who make this charge
will be loth to credit him with the majori
ty against them, when the votes are
ed. [Cheera.] Me - hid been charged
with being influenced in his present Mtn;
duct, by the action of the Baltimore
Convention in 1810. He appealed to
Democrats and Whigs to say' if any
man in the State lauored harder than
himself to secure the "elettien of the knot
nee of that convention. Whatever good
qualities he may 'have, he had tivu quality
of frankness. When half** for *igen be
was for him with all his heart. When ne
was againsto - man.--he was against him,
just as sincerely. He went into that cam
paign because, besides men; the Baltiinore
Convention sent oat principles under which
the democracy could rally. But this Sy
racuse Convention haenot only giventil
no principles, but men whom a majority
of the republicans of the State do not want.
Still, if he was an editor, with no more
principle than some editors, he might run
up the name of Hungerford for Comptrol
ler, and on election day, vote for Hunger
ford for State Senator. [Cheers] He
had no fear of the issue of this contest.—
Even though the government should fall
into the hands of the Whigs they could do
but little harm so long as they were kept
in the straight jacket - of thenew-ermstitu
thin. [Cheers.) Mr. V. B. would leave
every man to do as he pleased in regard to
supporting the Syracuse ticket. The dem ,
ocrats who had heard Itim might doss
they pleased. They =ln vote it if they .
choose ; but, said Mr. V. 8., I'm the man
that wnn'tdo it. [Tumultuous cheering.]
I won't, because no principles were ex
pressed by the Conventioe which nomina
ted it. I won't beeause it refused to declare
itself in favor of freedom. I won't be
cause I could not and maintain my self
respect. I won't, because to do so would
gratify the men who last year emedied Si
las Wright. [Great applause.] Now
you may take your own course-=do what
you choose. Those of you indebted tp
conservative banks, better vote the ticket.
Doctors who have conservative patients,
better vote the ticket. Lawyers who have
conservative clients, better vote the ticket.
Chicken pedlars and fish-mongers who
have conservative customers, better vole
the ticket; because, if you do not, the con
servatives will sacrifice you if they can.—.
t for me, I won't vote that ticket. [Pro
tracted cheering.] . ,le conclusion, hfr. V.
B. said, he haul taen his stand deliberate
ly and believed he had the sympathies of
the masses. If men can read the papers
—attend the Herkimer Convention—and
witness this enthusiastic gathering—and
are still unable to realize that the back
bone of the party is broken, they may wig
gle along until the election in their blessed
ignorance, and then they will realize it.
[Cheers.] I repeat, you may all do as
you please : but I shan't support that tick
et. [Cheers.] lam aware that lam ac
cused of violating the usages of the demo
cratic party ; but• cheating isn't a usage
of the party. [Laughter.] The Herki
uner Convention declared that the action of
the Syracuse Convention was of no hind
ing force. This I belive. [Cheers.] I
alkali choose my own candidates. I shall
vote my own ticket. I shall vote to "Main
tain Freedom"—to "Rebuke Fraud"—to
"Remember Silas Wright." [Tremen
dous and prolonged cheering.] It is for
you to do as von please. I know you are
intelligent. I know you are patriotic. I
know you arc discreet, and I believe yott
will art right. [Cheers and "we will."]
The political sea is now tempest tossed ;
but itt the midst of the dashing billlows I
think I see the spirit of liberty moving up
on the face of the waters ; and I think I
hear, even above the roar of the tempest, a
spirit whisper, "Be of good cheer ; it is I
—be not afraid." [Shout after shout, and
the most tumultuous enthusiasm followed
this termination of a speech, of which we
have given but little more than a skeleton.]
