To the unhappy W lugs men, wno nang ineir impressions upon either horn of this dilemma, wc ask a brief at tention to the following facts. In General Taylor's letter to Hon. Joseph R. Ingersoll, alluding to the statement Mr. Inger soll hid made In Congress, that "Gen. Taylor was a Whig, not Indeed an ultra partisan Whig, but a Whig in principle,' Gen. Taylor says ex plicitly : "All of which i entieelv connrxT: and after the discussion which occurred in botli Houses of Congress, at the lastscssion, growing nut of tho capitulation of Monterey, in u Inch di.rnsiiio ,-r.i. il,nn..-,'t Droner to defend mv con- . duct in regard to that tranCaetion, when assailed somewhat, if not entirely on part jrounds, I can l, .r.ll., Imuntim li.iui mi. ivlm tea's njCSCllI, and heard the speeches on that occasion, or Tfad lliem alter thov were published, could u-ell mis- mAi; the, complexion if my jnlUic.

In his letter to Dr. Dromon he again says if he could have voted at the lt Presidential elec tion, " Aoiii must certainly hate cast tny ic tor Mr. Clan." In his letter to Col. .Mitchell, he says: " I have no hesitation in staling, as I have tested on former occasions, that I urn a Whig, tho not an ultra one ; and that toir no desire la conceal thin fact from any jirtion if the people, ffllir. I'nittd States." Ill the Aljmn letter, which we shall publish again herwftflr, he once more declares ilistincl liv" I ri!itera.t what I have so often said 1 AM A WHIG."' A'. 1'. livpren.

Gen Taylor was not our choice. We would have prelerred liny other one of the lmny Whiiii, whose claims were discussed belurc the us scmbhug of the Coiuentioii. The Convention that nominated1 (ienerat Taylor, was one ol the largest of the kind ever asse milled. It wni composed of the ablest and best whiijs from every part of thn Union. The North had a lull representa tion, w hile quite a number of Southern districts were unrepresented. Thuswc hive placed before us the alternative if i.cneiai i a vuin or l.encrm i,ass. i ms alternative may possibly be changed ; but while it remains as it is, our course, our duty is clear wc shall support the nomination ol (tenernl Taylor. We cannot conceive of a preatcrcalainily than ihe perpetuation of ttie pre sent national administrative policy of James K. l'olk. General Taylor is not a itcmaHoguc. He has exhi bited no anxiety about the presidency , or the nomina tion, lie has simply told the people that lie was a Whirr, and that if efected. be should do the best be couldthat he should endeaovor to respect the will of the people, as expressed tneir represeiiiauves in Congress. He has expressed himself as hostile to the spiut of conquest, und though an old entered into the Mexican war with reluctance. The rebuke he gave to the jmlicyof the administration, in creating ihe Mexican war, as contained in his con fidential letter toau old intimate friend, Gen. Gaines, drew down upon him a vote of censure by a Locofoco House ol Itcpresentotiyes in the Inst Congress. Per sonalty, Gen. Taylor is popular, nml so long as the main isue lies between linn and (Jen. Cass, wc shall give him our support, nod so, vfe confidently believe will a great majority of the American people. Mr. Everett resides in Windsor, and this re spouse of the very journal which ho lias chosen" to be the first to announce his forthcoming " reason-1," might, perhaps, be deemed suflicient. Rut wo do not choose so to regard it. Mr. Ev erett has been a prominent member of the Whig Party in Vermont, and been repeatedly honored with their confidence and support. Ills term of Congressional service was an unusually long one, though it has never been pretended, that wo 5IKrtv of, t,t ,is claims to such a distinc- . , r .i-i;.,, .ri,,rt3u ,.rnrn u" u,u i any respect superior to those of other promi- nent Whigs in tho District that conferred that dis-tincliou upon hiin. That he performed the t ''" Jo'J "Pu" '" ' Co"8rcss, ac. ccptably to his District and to the State, we do wish to denj W lug principles, in V ermont. are so w-'l defined and understood, that her representatives in Congress need have-but little difficulty on that score, and questions not in- volving party principles may ill ways bo safely entrusted to any of our well-informed and sa- gacious citizens. Hut Mr. Everett s previous importance that entitles them to the strictest scrutiny at home. If lie assumes to represent the Whigs of Vermont, out ol Longrcss, ami yjrtuo f a commission, the authority and responsibility of which he shares icith fat other vrim;cn, ,,. t,usted Whigs if the State, we feilui lae x,c liberty to enquire into tho grounds of all a,PUmption that tlio most cogent of rca smls" wjji 5carccy rodecm from the imputation ,,f nrT;r,icc, among a people who are quite in ti,e cutom cf thinking for thematic. The to ua Hr)itly prized or petulantly thrown avvaj'. I .. r,ml , in n anil Koimt ,ear my ord Is the immediate jewel of their souls ;" And tho " good name" of Vermont, politically , is as dear to her Whigs, as it is entitled to their 1 protection. Since hi-i retirement from Congress, Mr. Ev- erett has committed two capital blunders, the , last of which, wo humbly conceive, is the one , m.i .. . , ' tl ., was quite "ross en.mgli, in the estimation of the most judicious Whigs in tho .State, to tl stroy his title to Ihe public confidence, audio jus . ttfy the fears that were entertained of tho pro- ,,,.1,1 by vr", , . l pnety ol Ins appointment (onpuly son Inmsell,) as a Delegate to the Whig National Convention. We allude to his well-known, and j universally condemned, resignation of his seat as tho lleprcscntative in Hie legislature of the tow f Windsor, in 1815, on account of what , he chose to consider discourteous treatment of himself, and of his conslltneiits, by a mrmher ffflceMnng, (considering that he was elected for I his supposed qualification to take caro belli of himself and of the interests of his immediate cnn-diim uts in tho lgisl iturc) that was as in- I . , , , , i.s...umU.. u. ,i, nut .uny nicapauio ot vise counsel, hut wholly forgetful of tho true rela tion which a legislator sustains to the House, of winch ho may bo a member.

Wo cannot admit their suflicicncy for a moment, without, at the nine time, censuring tho remainder of the Delegation, in whose fide! ity to Whig Principles, patiiotism, and sound judgment and discretion, wo have a confidence that Mr. Everett can in no respect disturb.

Nothing can bo plainer than that it was the ' duty of Mr. Everett cither to decline taking n ( seat In the Convention ; or to abide by its dcci- i sion, regularly and Jairly made. Any other rule of conduct would render the Convention a farce, and its members ridiculous ! Mr. Everett per fectly understood this. His own experience of tlio benefit resulting from tills view of rights and obligations as applied to popular Conventions, has taught him its truth. Hy taking neither of the alternatives suggested, therefore, ho aban doned his own duty and the dignity and estab lished nnd wholesome usages of tho Whig Par ty. He voluntarily retired from among Ins col leagues, refusing to execute the trust committ ed jointly to him and to them. We repeat t!iat it is wholly impossible, in such circumstances, that Mr. hvcrett can assign reasons " for the course he thus thought prop er to pursue that shall amount to an excuse. He can be poiscsscd of no facts in tho case that wcro not equally in thn knowledge of his col leagues, and of the Whig3of Vermont and the Union. There Ins been no sort of pretence that tho nomination of Gen. Taylor was not made fairly, honorably, regularly without strat agem or in'rigue, and by the simple preponder ance of votes cist for him by whigs from all sections of the Countrj. As it is well and tru ly suggested by the Windsor Journal, every District in tlio I- ree States was- fully represent ed in the Convention, while several of tho Slave States were not represented, and were allowed no voice in the matter. Hut Mr. Everett's un changed and honorable adherence to Mr. Clav, during the whole balloting, forecloses him from objecting to Gen. Tavlou on the ground that ho is a Southern man or a Slaveholder. Mr. Clav is both. That General Tavloii is Whig, his own repeated and frank declarations and the declarations of tho soundest and truest. hearted Whigs in tlio Union, leave us no to djubt or deny. He has avowed his emphatic preference, for the person and tlio principles of IIesiiv Clav himself, in the presidential otlice a fact that, one would suppose, might save him from tho " uncompromising hostility " of so un compromising Clay Whig" as Mr. Everett! lint wlicro are Mr. Everett's Coli.f.uf In the Convention ; and, especially, where is the Hon.

It is well known that the venerable Mr. Buckingham, the able and resolute editor of tho Huston Courier, was ono of the most, if not the most unyielding of tho opponents of tlio nomi nation of General Tavlor. Old Hunkcrism, since the nomination, lias been deriving great comfort from the inference it drew therefrom, that tho course of the Courier would bo factious and injurious to the harmony of the Whigs of Massachusetts. Nothing is less likely to be the case. The Courier has uttered no word against the nominee of the Whig Party, in whoso ranks it lias long done yeoman's service, and is about the last paper in tlio Union that will take coun sel of its resentments, and do any thing cither to hazard the triumph of Whig Principles, or to iHcrcie the chances of the election of tint re markable doughface, Mr. Jsicis Cass of Michi gan.
