Anti-Masons, attended without any deputation,
upon their own responsibility. The meeting
in Livingston consisted of 7 CI ay men and 2
Anti-Masons. But since the convention, tne
counties are turning out to denounce its pro
ceedings. Witness the full attendance of the
Republican County Convention of Courtland,
In Pennsylvania, every effort is making to
unite the Bankmen, Claymen, and all the ele
ments of opposition, against the Administra
tion but it will not do. lliey have won over
one mercenary scribbler, the "Inquirer," who
is indebted more than $30,000 to the U. S.
Bank; and who has of course no moral force to
add to the cause to which he has apostatised.
And they are also getting up a meeting of Irish
men, to denounce Gen. Jackson. They have
accordingly put forth an invitation to a general
meeting of naturalized Irishmen, to be held at
Philadelphia signed by more than 1700 names.
But the 44 Pennsylvanian", unveils some ol the
secret springs of their proceedings. It says
that it bears the Orange stamp that many of
the Irishmen, whose names are attached, are
unknown, &c. &c. And it gives the following
hit to the movers:
"Alexander Cook, whose name heads the list of
the Orange call, was an applicant to the Executive
lor the situation of Treasurer of the Mint:
"James M'Henry, whose name follows, was appli
cant for a Consulate.
"James Gowan, it is presumed, was too modest to
continue to be wine merchant to several ot the officers
of government, alter the disgrace of his friend Ingham,
and his gallanting him through Pennsylvania.
"Should we discover wno any or tne rpst are. we
will inform our readers. Wc fire industriously in
quiring. But we despair of finding them out. The
"M'Devitts" and " Galbraiths,,J &c. appear to have
been clapped down in the list as they landed, the oth
er day from Londonderry by the family.
" Among the signers to the call, as printed, we
recognize a number ol highly respectable citizens,
and several who have grown gray in the ranks of de
mocracy. Some names it appears have been affix
ed without the consent of" the persons whom they re
present: some were placed there, as we are credibly
informed, under a misapprehension of the object of
the meeting ; others of the signers are not yet natural
ized ; and not a few have always been opposed to Gene
ral Jackson. Phil. Sentinel.
Four of the Irishmen, whose names go along
with the Invitation, have come forward to de
clare, that they did not authorise any such use
to be made of their names, viz., J. Hogan, W.
Graham, T. Dougherty? and Dr. C. C. Connell.
Mr. Graham says: 44 In the fervor of my at
tachment to the cause of republicanism, in the
ardor of my zeal for the magnanimous being
who has risked his life to save his native land
from impending despotism, and succeeded in
the enterprise; by every tie that combines the
countryman to the patriot, I will sustain, 44 Bank
or no Bank," Andrew Jackson to the most ex
alted office in the donation of the people : and
I ardently anticipate, isolating myself from
party-country principles, that every Irishman
will strenuously advocate and support the cause'
ot one who, when peril encompassed us, stood
to his guns to save us; of one whose pen was
alert as his sabre, when more deleterious bigots
and enthusiastic aristocrats combined in a knot
to strangle the principles of democracy."
We cannot believe that the sons of Ireland
will be bubbled by such tricks. The great ma
jority of them will not support a cause which
is upheld by the great majority of the rederal
Party. Who was it that remonstrated against
the United Irishmen coming over to the U. S.r
Have the Irishmen forgotten the letter of Em-
mett to Mr. Rufus King? Will they ajd anv
such cause? Was it not but the other day, that
one of the most loyal of the Clay Papers sneer
ed at Andrew Jackson, as being the son of an
44 Leave it to the Ora Tig-men (says the Penn
sylvanian,) to support the Orange cause: the
Green Shamrock is the badge of the true Irish
man and the friend of liberty and of Jackson."
We trust, that all such true rnen will come out,
hold meetings of their own in Philadelphia,
N. York, &c. and disabuse the public mind of
the false impressions, which are attempted to
be made upon them by these Proceedings in
We cannot enter the lists with such a scribe
as the Phil. Inquirer. But he informs us, that
E. C. Watmough does hold an office (viz: a
Commissioner of Bankruptcy.) The other Mr.
Watmough (member of Congress, &c.) we
learn, has made some attack upon us in a print

such abuse for seven and twenty years. We

No, no t-tliis course was not in unison with
their party tactics they ordered the non:ina
tion to be laid upon the table too late to be
taken up1 at the close of the session and thu
left an office vacant, which the interest of the
people of that section, and the interest of the
country,' required should be filled.
The President, after the adjournment r;
Congress, seeiny the necessitv thnt fho
should be immediately filled, having tho
most powerful evidence before him that Mr.
Gwynn was. worthy of the trust, gave him the
appointment and for this, fearless exercise of
his duty; they have opened all their batteries of
defamation, and poured out their phials of wrath
upon him. Has not the President his constitu

be thwarted at every turn by such men us
Clay, Webster and Poindexter? and this

The favorite theme of the Opposition is the
unconstitutionality of this appointment ; and
upon this charge they have rung all changes
of detraction. But this will not avail them.
Like all their other charges it will recoil upon
their own heads, and shew them to the people
in all their loathsome deformity.
The President, well awareof the unrelenting
watchfulness of his opponents, although con
vinced that he had the right, and always fear
less in the execution of his rights, called upon
the Attorney General for his opinion of tho
measure. This opinion is given in the papers
of t'ie !ay, in conjunction with one from Mr.
Wirt, late Attorney General, in a similar case.
These 'opinions sustain the President, and they
