organize by appointing, an ACTIVE, IN
ber as•chairinar.,,and another Such-as,See
rctary—beth to reside in the countytown;
2. This same conmiittee; at this their
first meeting, to appoint in each borough,
ivard or township, comi,Pitees composed
.13, 5 or 1 of the most ACTIVI.I Democrats,
to act as vigilance committees for their re
spective districts. • •
3: As soon as appointed, the ch\airman
- and secretary of •the ciiunty" comniittee to
convey to each individual member of the
township and wad committees, through a
collfiaenlial source, notice of their appoint
ment, and of the naturo and effect of the
guiles that• will be ,required of them seve-
4., The duties of these committee men
should be, as early•as possible, to effect a
general . EN ROLNIENT.of the voters in
such borough, ward or.township, designat,
ing them under appropriate heads, as De
mocrats, Federalists; and doubtful. This
may_be_ effected either-by-living-access-to
the assessments, or through the combined
personallinnWledge of the'committee Men.
'5. After, this general classification iu.all
the diitriets has beenyerfeeted, these town

Central Committee will attend, if the names.
and loeation of the persons be deaignated .
as.also w hether. documents are to be sent
in English or German.
6,.. It should also be enjoined by urgent

an especial duty, shortly before the elec

triets in—person, awl 7,:ege r la-s-latenclance
at the path, on the ' day diction.' The
Democracy feel satisfied. that they have at
this day an overwhelining majority of -the
popular vote on their side, if it can be got
, 7. As well the committee men within'the
wins, as also- those in Om. townships,
should - meet frequently, between this and
the election, (say at least once a week,)
for the purpoSe of contrasting •the progress
of their labours, and also to consultAipon
what forther may • be done for the
tion of the good cause. • ,•
• 8. In. as many districts as possible, "Pon-

Since my last letter to you, the Loan

passed-23 ayes to 20 noes-ti strictly
party-ilote:- 6 - WhigsOnost of them' detain-
ed by indisposition, and 2 Locofocos, being
absent. The bank bill has occupied much
of the remainder of the time, the opposi
tion, as usual, endeavoring by means of ridi
culous, trifling amendments, long speeches,,
&c., to delay the vote, and• if possible to
-prevent-The-passage-or_the :bill._ In this
way they hope to render Abe extra session
odious:to the people. Unless the physical
strength of this factious, minority" gives
way, or , the previous questioa be adopted,
it is impossible to say-how long .the .ses
sion will continue. To convince you that
the opposition Wive not the good of the
Cinintry at heart, but are guided solely by
the wish of injuring the administration, I
need only call to ,your remerebrance the
fact, that, when the vote was taken upon

The latter part of last week, and the first
two days of this, was taken up 'with the,
discussion of the bill Making appropriations
for repairing and-finishing the fortifications
of our coast and harbois. It was paSsed
on Tuesdarby the vote_of 148 to
Eleven whigs (from the southern 'states
'principally); voted against the bill, and '3l
opposition members (plainly hem the
Northern .Atlantic States) voted in the af
firmative.% TWelve administration, and ten

ied with a great deal of •warnithqUite tiff:
necessary at this season. • The vote-on it
will be . taken, if is supposed, to-day. Quite
. a': ci — imm. rred '. between Wise - (th - e L
prime mover of all the disturbance in the
ilouse)-`and - Nisbet, of , . Georgia, -it very
quiet, excellent aim • Mr. Wise, however,
found that if he was not his equal in noisy,
denunciation, he still possessed the . courage
and ability to defend himself.
. Virginia abstractioniSat •is fast losing
ground: Wise ;Ind . , Mallory. will in all 1
probability be driven overto the locofoces;
Gilmer is improving very much. Out of
Virginia there is little or.' none of it. Ar
nold, of Tennessee, made an excellent
speech a few-dais Since, 'showing the - evil
of abstraction in a strung point' of view.—
Wise, the most.trpublesome of this school ; H
hevertheless professeS to be a warm friend
of President Tyler; and asupporter of his

As soon as this is done, there will be a

By the way, what has Lecome of the
bill giving the election of the 'canal com
missioners to tire. people ? Surely your
democratic Governer cannot inten d to be

In answer to our correspondent we•liave
to say, IliaL.the Governor MA yet
signed , the. bill-giving - -the -election of the
canal commissioners to the people, and his .
friends-say he does not intend to do, so; and
yet his party will support. him tiotwit

of showing. their democracy, to oppose any
measure calculated to take power from the
oflice r holders,and ,give . it to the people.
