Xermont.K large Democratic Convention was

Bills, and wo arc glad to see that they 'have set

We sco from the Republican that a 11 Literary
and Scientific Association " ha lately been formed
in Washington, (N. C.) This is well. Nothing
can have a more excellent tendency than audi
societies properly constituted and conducted, to
rcline the tiMo and elevate tho character of a

community. '
and, we do hereby most solemnly pledge our
selves nover to ceaso our opposition to it until we
shall, by such Constitutional and legal means as
may be within our power, expel it altogether from
the country, or so thoroughly reform it, as that it
will no longer be dangerous to the rights and liber
ties of the peoplo. j
And H'Acreas, This Convention believe that
tho Constitution of the United States is the most
perfect instrument of fundamental law ever framed
by human sagacity, the oflspring of profound
wisdom, and devoted patriotism; and believing
that the integrity of the I'mon, and the continu
ance of American Liberty greatly dceud on pre
serving that Constitution pure, and undefilcd, ns it
came from the hands of Washington, and his co
patriots ---therefore,
Rtsolred, That wo deprecate in the most un
qualified manner the attempt now making by the
Federal Whig leaders, with Henry Clay at their
liead to abolish a most vital part of the Constitu
tion, thereby to chsnge the character of our
(lovcrnmcnt, and destroy ono of our grcatent
safeguards against uowiso and unconstitutional
tail to elucidate political questions, and promote nation-
si interest. Judicious selections irom foreign journals,
winch are m accessible in Washington, continental ss
well ss English, (popular attention in this country be
ing directed too exclusively lo the latter,) cannot but
interest the enquiring rcador, whose liberal Curiosity
and expansive sympathies extend berond rjio confines,
however smp'e, of his own country. Nor will litera
ture asjjjencral criticism be neglected, though kept
subordinate to the paramount ends ot a political journal.
In a word, it Is the design of the subscribers to f'urnili
s spirited paper, for winch, they sre pemuaded, pecu
liar facilities sre found st the seat ot Government.
Without appealing t0 their past position snd exer
tions they will content themselves here with declaring
that their opinions are thoroughly aud unchangeably
Democratic, yet, they would fun hope, not illiberal or
uncharitable. 1'hey will dixcuu question and juJgu
men with freedom, yet with that moderation which
