Sad carried it forward with as much Mr. V. B. denied that the simple fact
ast i e f ac ti en an d zea l as if it had been . that the Whir concurred with the rad-
ical democracy in regard to the Wilmot
proviso, was nny evidence either that it
or its advocates were federalists.—But
for the Whigs the law in relation to the
new constitution could not have been
passed. But for Whig votes, the new
constitution could not have been adopted.
The conservatives opposed them both.
Why were not the radical democrats
branded as Whigs in those casesl The
man, said Mr. V. 8., who tries to make
a ti big of me, will end in making an
ass of himself. [Laughter.] He was
not baby enough to run whenever any
one cried out "spook." He would as
adon think of running away from the
Mexicans because a reinforcement of
Whigs were coming to the rescue, as
to run away from the support of the Pro
viso because Whigs were in favor of it.
[Prolonged cheering.] Instead of bran
ding such a report as evidence of its
federal Character, he would deem it ev
' dence of its righteousness. No wise
man will repudiate a good thing because
it has the countenance of those with
whom he differs generally.—(Cheers.)
He doubted whether all the brave men
in our army in Mexico were democrats.
At Yorktown, Chippewa, Buena Vista
and Churubusco, 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 deem himself a
craven at heart, if he should find himself
hesitating to admit the gallantry of Tay
lor because he was a Whig.—(Cheers.)
There are times when all good men rnl.
ly to support the correct principle. He
was the last man to be driven off from a
righteous measure, because he found it
supported by men connected with other
denominations. (Cheers.) He had been
accused of leading the democrats astray
in the contest. *He would guaranty that
I those who make this charge will be loth
to credit him, with the majority against
them, when the votes are counted,—
(Cheers.) He had been charged with
being influenced in his present conduct
with ; by the action of the Baltimore
Convention in 1840. He appealed to
democrats and whigs . to say if there was
any man in the State who had labored
harder than himself to seem.° the elec•
tion of that Convention. Whatever good
(polities he may have he had the gunk
ities of frankness. When he was for a
man he was for him with all his heart.
When he was against a man, Ile was
against him just as sincerely. He went
into that campaign because, besides
men, the Baltimore Convention sent out
principles under which the democracy
could rally. But the Syracuse Conven
tion has not only given us no principles,
but men whotn a majority of the repub
licans of the State do not want. Still,
if he was an editor, with no more prin
ciples than some editors, be might run
up the name of Ilungerford, for Compt
roller, and on the election day, vote for
Huogerford, for State Senator. (Cheers.)
He had no fear of the issue of this
contest. Even though the government
should fall into the hands of NV Ligs they
could do but little harm so long as they
were kept in the straight jacket of the
new constitution. (Cheers.) Mr. V.
would leave every man to do as he
pleased in regard to supporting the Sy
racuse ticket. The democrats who had
heard him might do as they pleased.—
They can vote it if they choose ; but,
said Mr. V. 8., I am the man that wont'
do it. (Tumultuous cheering.) I won't,
because no principlls were expressed
by which it was nominated. I won't,
because it refused to declare itself in fa
vor of freedom. I won't, because I could
not and maintain my self respect. I
won't because to do so would be to grat ,
ify the men who last year crucified Si
las Wright. (Great applause.) Now
you may take your own course—do
what you choose. Those of you indebt
ed to conservative banks, better vote the
ticket: Doctors who have conservative
patients, better vote the ticket. Law
yers who have conservative clients, bet
ter *te the. ticket. Chicken pedlars
and fish mongers who have conservative
customers, better vote the ticket be
cause, if they do not, the conservatives
will sacaifice you if they can. But for
me, I won't vete that ticket. (Protracted
cheering.) Mr. V. B. had been told that
he had been giving Croswell too much
consequence. But this was a mistake.
You could not have give a man too much
consequence who has the power to
thrust from the Executive chair, if not
into his grave, such a man as Silas
Wright. It was true he had no respect
for his integrity, veracity, or patriotism;
but he had respect for his zeal, talents,
and energy, He is brains for the whole
conservative party. (Cheers.) Where
would your Peckhains, your Hoses, your
Gallups, your Seymours, and your Wat
son's be, if it were not for Edwin Cros
well! They wouldn't know enough to
go home in a dark night. (Latiaiiter.)
In conclusion, Mr. V. B. said, he had
taken his stand deliberately and believ
ed 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 backbone
of the party is broken, they may wig•
gle along until after election in their
blessed ignorance and then they will re.
alize. (Cheers.) I repeat, you may all
do as you please ; but I shan't support
that ticket. (Cheers.) I am aware that
I am accused of violating the usages of
the democratic party ; but cheating
isn't a usage of the party. (Laughter.)
The Herkimer Convention declared that
the action of the Syracuse Convention
was of no binding force. This I believe.
(Cheers.) I shall choose my own can
didafes. I shall vote my own ticket. I
shall vote to Maintain Freedom"—to
"Rebuke Fraud"—to "Retnember Silas
Wright." (Treitiendous and prolonged
cheers.) It is for you tb do as you
please. I know you arc intelligent. I
know you are patriotic. I know you
are discreet, and I believe you will act
right. (Cheers and "we will.") The
political sea is now tempest tossed ; but
in the midst of the dashing billows I
think I see the spirit of liberty moving
upon the face of the water ; and I think
I hear, even above the roar of the tem
pest, a sprit whisper "Be of good cheer;
it is I be not afraid." [Shout after
shout, and the most tumultuous enthu
siasm followed this termination of a
speech, of which we have given but lit
tle more than a skeleton.]
The St. Louis papers received to-day
contain some further interesting intelli
gence from California. Corn. Stockton,
accompanied by a party of forty-six,
among whom arc a number of army and
navy officers, set out from California in
July last, and came almost direct
through to St. Louis, where they
arrived on the sth inst. At Turkey
River they were surprised at night by a
party of Indians belonging to the Wash
kee tribe, anti had quite a skirmish with
them ; in which Coin. Stockton receiv
ed a severe wound from an arrow.—
The Indians were finally repulsed, but
they succeded in carrying off four hor
ses belonging to Coat. Stochton's party.
The Corn. made no stay at St. Louis,
but immediately set out to Washington
city.—He seemed to be on the most ur
gent business [To attend as a witness
on Freemont's trial.]
The party met quite a number of em
igrants on their way to California and
Oregon, from whom they learned that
everything was quiet in the country

Cot. Mason had been appointed Gover

in his endeavors to preserve peace and
