IOOn Tuestlay next, the lrac.meti of thh S'.me.will be called' upon o-'pass ,lll!ir jiuJgnient upon the measures of the present adminislrntinn. by lbcoxojciso of, that prerogative which constitutes them such the elective franchise. It. is a "prfvilcjro which imposes high obligations, and should not bo lightly regarded, or ever neglected : it is the distinguishing feature of our re publican institutions: ti right which makes man a freeman the deprivation of which would leave him a mere serf. As freemen, then, every legal voter should consider it nut only his privilege, but his huiinden duty, to repair to the bal lot box especially at this tunc, when there is so much to condemn, to correct, nnd re form, in our Government and interpose his negative to (ho corrupt nnd mad schemes of Martin Van Rurcn by voting the Whig Ticket. Tin; Whigs at the West, who, by un wearied efforts, have overcome their politi. cal opponents, and spoken in thunder tones to the corruptinnisls nl Washington, ex. pect Vermont to do her duly, and respond in n voice equally plain, to their eloquent appeals! Let every whig voter bo up and doing. The question which present itselT to every freenran at the present time in dis charge of his duty at the polls is n very simple one, and yet one of mighty impor tance. It is simply Ibis: "am I. satisfied with the present condition of the cnuntry--do I approve or disapprove those measures of the administration which have been mainly instrumental in producing ii?" This is the naked question, ns it will be presented to every freeman on Tuesday uexi; and as he answers it to his own con tciencc, so is he hound bv his solemn oath to express hiirtclf through the ballot box O" War, ir.sTii,EcE and famine, said Hc.Mir Clay in 11J2I1. arc preferable to the elect, on of Andrew Jackson to the Presi dency of tho United States. Let any sober, reflecting man sit down and enquire, which of these three calamities, or whether all united could have inflicted more uni vcrsal ruin, than have l he measures of Andrew Jackson's ndmini-tratinn. Martin Van Duron has promised under his own hand, to follow out 'thce measures. Now 'wit worth the while for any individual in Vermont (office holders excepted) to sus tain these measures. They will answer the ends of Lnro luicoism but they arc far separated from the interests of the country. A community of goods, n me tallic currency, a war upon the merchants, and upon the encouragement nf domestic! industry; n destruction of tho Credit j System, which olnno sustains labor, nnd insures to the farmer, a fair prifit for his productions; these articles in tho creed of the powers thnt be will not suit our meridian. The measures of the adminis trillion are eating into the very vitals tJ our prosperity. A Fair Statement. The Tory Party lms been in power in the United States for eight yenrs, during that period they have carried every one of their vxeaturcs. The people were promised gold and silver in abundance n bitter currency, than thoy over bad Reform and retrenchment in fine sill ho promises nnd professions that could be made were made when General Jackson cumc into power. Now let us see what has been the result of the tory policy. No gold or silver. Commcrco prostra. ted. Maiuiinc'iires almost dead. The poor thrown out of employment. Tho government with unlliuus on millions of the public money in its custody, nnd vet Bankrupt. Merchants, in the inidnt of the iiiin brought upon tin in by the nduiinistra I 'on, duinunced ns knaves and cheats. Every bank in I lie country denying specie payments. Whole cniuinuiiitieH probtrated. The rrcnt Maplu of thu nation reduced fourold in value. Tho people every where ul a less what to do, Europo pointing to us with the finger of scorn, because wo have been the subjects of n monstrous hum bug. Confidence destroyed. Enterprise paraljzed tlioo and such ns these arc the results of the tory policy. That the party mean to adhere to it, thcro cannot be the shadow of a doubt. TO THE FREEMEN OF GRAND ISLE COUNTY. Fellow Citizens: Next Tuesday you arc to make choice of a Senator to repre sent you in I tic Senate of this State Judge Allen nnd Dr. Ramos are the only Candidates for the office. Judge Allen lias been appointed to many responsible stations and has proved himself to bo a faithful public servant. On the other hand Dr. Dames "has boon tried in the balance nnd found wanting." He is also diametrically and pol ticaily opposed to tbc,.g"rcat inter ests of most of you. "These hard times" arc fine times for him. He can now shave noc?and compel the people to pay him his thirty per cent Interest, or sacrifice their nil. In fact, fellow ciiiz , his course and character were fairly' adO palpably pictured out to you by a writer, in the Free Press of last week over tho signature of "Rucking ham." If you re-blJct him'to the Senate, ho will do all in his power to prolong these ovil times; you have ihcj strongest evidence thnt ho legislates with an eye more to A is. oiuu interest, than to the interests of tho People. Ho knows fellow citizens that bo represents n minority, hence 5011 find him nnd his pnrtizans urging his r'e.election on the ground (not that ho is tho most fit per son) but that hu was elected last year and ought to be this; nnd that Judge Allen now holds several other offices These follow citizens are too shallow reasons to urge in these important times; wo waul a man in that mutton that wo junto will be faithful to uur interests, and Judge Allen wo .'cnoio to be such a man". "A word to the wise is sufficient;" go to tho polls 0110 and all and veto for tho man that will legislate for tho people. Piulo. North Hero. Aug. 29, 1!!37. The Hon. William Sit.arue, ono of tho Jackson members of Congress from Rhode Island, and who was nominated by the same party for re election, has recently addressed a letter to tho Hon. J. D'Wolf, in answer to one from that gentleman 011 iho present disordered slate ofthe currency. This letter is valuable for tho plain truth it tell', and especially so as coming from such a source from n practical man o sound sense who lias heretofore been a dc-f cided administration man. From what I have said, it necessarily follows as mtj belief, thnt if Gen. Jackson had let "well enouoh alone" as he l'OU.M) IT IN l!!3f, THE EVILS WE now SUri'EK WOULD II AVE I IK, EN SPARED US. I do not believe that Iho banks would hnvi increased hevond the 'wants of (he legitimate business of the country. Con seqiiently speculation in lands, over impor tations and n surplus revenue could not have existed; and 1 here could not have been any nccc!!sity for tho suspension of specie payments. Hut the past is beyond our control. Wc may, if wn will, provide' for tho future. Wo must have n general currency: gold nnd silver for ils basis, and a circulating medium equivalent lo it. The government of the United States has the power, and it is its duty to furnish such a currency.

ANDREW JACKSON. Tho moniont wo saw iho letter, we know Mint an examination of documents was only necessary to overthrow it, nnd hlinw General Jackson's infirmity of memory. To this tank wc proceed 1 Tho President's tnussago to Congress, of December, 1030, contains the following passago: 'In the spirit of improvement nnd cntn- promise wiucli distinguishes our country and ils institutions, it becomes us to enquire wiiotiicr it tie not possible to secure the advantages nfl'irdod by tho present bank through tho agency of tho Hank ofthe United States, so modified in its principles nnd structure nsto obvintc coustiliHiotinl and othor objections.' It is thought practicable,' ho continues, 'to organize such a bank,' and he goes on to show how it may ho done, oilding that Mho slates would bo strengthened by hnv ing in their hands the moans of furnishing thu local PAPER CURRENCY through iheir own banks, while THE HANK OF THE UNITED STATES, though issu ing no paper, would check the issues of the state hanks.' In tho opening of tho veto message bo Ibro referred to, tho idea suggested in tho procedinr; quotation, was carried out in the following terms: " 'A Hank of tho United Slates,' snvs he, 'is in many respects convenient fur the government, nnd useful lo the people. En tertaining ibis opinion, and deeply impres sed with the belief that some of the powers nnd privileges possessed by tho existing bank are unauthorized by tho constitution, subversive of thu rights of the states, and dangerous to the liberties of tho people, I felt it. my duty, nt an early period uf my ndniinisirniiou, to call tlin attention of Congress to the practicability of organi zing nu instiiuMon combining nil its ndvan. tngf.i nnd obviating these objections, i SLXCERELY REGRET thai, in the act before me. I enn perceive nono of thop modifications of THE bank charter which are necessary, in my opinion, to make it compatible with justice, with sound policy, or wilh tho ooiisititulion of our country." And toward the close of the same docu merit, the following remarkable passage .. : ..a.i.i. rj... i-.i,..,,, ntit ntilv ' . ' .... .! avows that ho was 111 fuvor ol a JianU ot the united Stales, but was displeased that ho had not been requested to prepare tho plan of such n bank : " - "That a B'tnk oft.thc United Slates com p'lenl la nil the duties lo'iich mny be rcqui' red by llie gnvfrnmriit:,miu'hl be so organi sed as hot to infringe rm our delegated jiom. crs, or the reserved tights of the states, 1 do not entertain a doubt.'. Hud the cxeiutivc been called upon lo furnish the pyajfit of such nn institution. 'Villi DUTY WOULD II. FE liBEX CIlEEllFULL Y PER FORMED!" In addition to which, we state, that we have seen and read a letter in General Jackson's own hand writing, addressed to the President of tho Dank of the United States, asking thnt institution to locate a branch of the Dank at Pcnsacola. Wo tiro enabled to state, and can prove in a court of justice, that General Jackson once agreed to recommend tho rc-chartcr-ing of the old Dank that ho requested a gentleman to prepare a paragraph for that purpose, to be inserted in his message, and to have it submitted to the directors, that it might harmonise with their views and Ihal such paragraph was prepared, nnd forwarded lo Washington. We could farther prove, to the sati-faclion of any twelve honest men, that a ui'ivinnnt from Albany prevented such a recommendation. STRENGTH OF PARTIES IN CON GRESS. The Philadelphia U. S. Gazette stajes that il has heard from very good authority oflwo members of Congress who have been allowed to the reigning party, who will break from them immediately upon the assembling of Congress.

There is no probability, we Hunk, that this Dill will pass, as the demise ofthe Crown has nlready been provided for by n Dill brought in by the present Mtui.sturs since iho Into King's death, in which tho regular sticcc-.-ion is preserved. Tho Duke of Cumberland has probably increased his previous unpopularity in England, by a declaration abolishing the constitution of Hanover, which wo believe was adopted ns n consequence t.f the Treaty of Vienn nnd sanctioned by his two predecessors.

Upon receiving bis re port, thoy requested him to c-snirie charge of the work, which he did, though nl Iho same time expressing it as Ins opinion t lint, there was very lllile hope nf iiecess.

Mr. Huntington, in a letter published in tho Plymouth .Memorial. re!nt-s the following, af nn emigrant l.iunly. whom he met in the steamboat from Dutl'ilo lo Detroit. "In tho afternoon, I happened to plant my chair right oppo-ite in the effect ol n family thai were going nbout ISO miles in to the interior of Mielugan. The fjinilv const-led of the etnignint nnd his wife", both under the age of 30, nnd n son nnd daughter. Tnev are purl nt n cil uiv thai caino out from Venn. 1111, n year ngo, con sisting ol some '30 or 40 families, known ir. each other in "fader land," and selee'eii from the most orderly and religious. This man, like many of iho rest, went out la-t year, alone, and mule preparations for ro lurning with his family. They purchased together ono qunrlor of a lown-lnp each man having a village house lot of ten acres, and a farm uf ICO acres, contiguous to it. Like the Puritans. they made arrangements, from the beginning, lo take their household gods and I heir minister olong with them; though, I suspect, Mr. Robinson would never have done so much at farming, as their minister is likely to do; for, like tho rest nf the emigrants, ho has purchased, with his own money, the same quantity of land (170 acres) Ihat tho rest did. Desidcs this, they give htm the use of !!0 acres of land, which is attached to their intended parsonage. Il seems this is all tho certain provision thoy have yet pledged themselves to inako for his support. Noticing a shorl nfla among his things, nskod him what giimo hu found at Vermont ville. lie informed mo, in reply, that there were hear and deer, (besides wolves,) wild turkeys and squirrels. Ho says, iho climate there is healthy, the soil excellent, though, now hcnyily limbered thnt tho wulcr is pure and good ; the streams swift ; and there are two or threu niill.sites 111 the place."
