In this way the doings of the State Convention will come up before the people in their county assemblage, and all receive their approbation at tho srino time. The State Committee will probably call the Stato Convention soon. Wo do not know as it matters much bow soon. Our opponents say that wo may expect hard fighting tho coming campaign. Very well. The Green Mountain Whigs arc fighting fowls : tboy have bad some little experience in that line; the Hessians found them "hard cases" at lleniiington,"long time ago." And the Ivcofocns have experienced a similar treatment at their hands for years. If fighting is really to bo the order of tho day, it needs no wizzaid's wand to enable one to predict that a most gloriour victory awaits 'ho whig forces in September. o hope the suggestions we have llung out Mrs, WrnsTErt. on his way homeward from this city and from public life, accepted of the compliment of a Public Dinner offered to him by a number or merchants and other leaning citizens of lhltimnre, without distinction of party, in token of thoir estimate of the sorvi. ccs rendered by him in the station which be lias lately resigned. A full account of this public Festival, at which Honr.UT Gii.mor, Esq. presided, will doubtless bo published. In the mean time we gather the following particulars of it from the Halthnoro Sun of yesterday : Tho Dinner on Thursday evening took place at the lAcliangc lintel, and upwards nl a hun dred citizens were present. After partaking of tho dinner provided on the occasion, the follow ing regular toasts wore drank : First. The Union now and forever ono and in separable. Srcond. The President of the United Stale". Third. The OoNniTCTioN nf tlio United States, itsnmhnrs, fmindcr, and defenders. Fourth. Tho memory of Washington. The fifth toast in order was prefaced with a few remark", from the ("hair, appropriate to the distinguished statesman whom the gentleman present had assembled to lienor. It was as follows : "Our guest, Daniel Wedsteh." After the applause which followed the an. noiincment of this toast, Mn. WrnsTnr. rose and addressed the company in a speech occu. pying about an hour and a half, adducing a sc. rios, of facts concerning our commercial rola. lions with several foreign nations, the iinfav .r. able position wbirli was occupied by the Unitei Slates in consequence of the present policy observed in tlio intercourse by treaty stipula. tinns, anil suggesting such changes asappoaroi to be moro likely In conduce to the national am! commercial interests, &.r. abstaining from all allusion to party topics.

After Oio conclusion of Mr. Webster's re marks the sixth regular toast was announc co, viz : " r.ngland and bcr Queen." The national compliment implied in this toast was duly acknovt lodged bv Mr. McTavisII the British Consul, in a neat, pertinent, and brief speech. Tho seventh and last regular toast was : "Lord Asiiucbton." This was prefaced by some remarks from tho chair, complimentary to the character of the subject ot it, and received with very decided marks of respect. .at. Int.

Such was their high mission then, when tho corruption of tho national government had spread infection over tho whole land, taint ing its moral atmosphere with the miasma of broken pledges, violated public faith, offi cial peculation nnd political traffic: and it needs not a very keen eyo to perceive, that having accidentally failed of accomplishing their object, tlicy are preparing lo placo its final consummation beyond a peradvunture.

The prriod is again approaching when llie Whigs of Vermont aro accustomed to meet in Council lo select the men who nre to fill tho high offices of the Statu for tho ensuing political year. It has been onr wont, when this season returns, to call the attention of our readers to the subject, and glance nt the prospects of the coining campaign. And in doing so nt present, wo can truly say, we have scarcely ever been able to give belter promise uf success than seems to open be fore its ibis year. Although our present Chief Magistrate has declined a re-election, nnd tho task will therefore devolve on the Convention to niaku n new nomination for that office, ue have no feats of the result. We believe that, large as is tho circle from which iho choice is to bo made, there is wis- lotii,self-donial, virtue and patriotism enougb in thu Whigs of the State, to bring forward man who will command the unanimous approbation and cordial support of tho Whig Democracy, and we have no doubt ihey will do so. At the same time we would urge up on all our friends the necessity of a full and fair representation of every town in the State in order that tho voico of tho convention may be nn honest expression of tho popular will. Wo see not why tho Whigs of the sev eral towns in this county cannot select their egatcs to the State Convention nt the same iitno recommended liy the Uounty Coinntiltco for thu appointment of delegates to nominnlu a candidate for Congress. Let these preliminary inatleis be promptly atten ded to, and let tho popular preference be faitly made known, and no shall go into llie contest with a confidence of victory which can only ho felt by tboso who have never been conquered, and who glory in the con sciousness that ihey never havo deserved to be.

Success was to ma ny a sufficient test of truth, and to be found on the side of a minority, they wcro not slow to consider synonymous wilh being found on thn side of error. These advantages amounted indeed, almost to nn insurmounta ble barrier against tho assaults of the clearest truth, and tho most undoubiod proof of pecu lation, fraud and malversation on tho pari of. the public servants.
