Licit. Whatever lao May be said of Tho fair the show of fruit waa do failure. Never has there been seen Auice the organisation of the society a finer display of fruit apples pears and grappa and other fruit in abundance. It waa arranged on a tame running the whole length of the Hall and although thro May have been seen in exhibitions of other societies More in Quantity to doubt whether before in this state was Ever collected a larger number of varieties or More luscious fruit.

Tho Namo of Tho exhibitor is unknown. Had we Timo and space we might speak in details of other objects of taste and use to to s. A of the Crayon and other drawings exhibit of but our Fotieo of this part of the show must to closed with Tho general remark that Tho show in All respects was a creditable Ono and in Tho Natter of fruits and vegetables exceeded any previous one amassed under the auspices of the society. It remains for us to speak of the proceedings on Tho snood Day. Second Day. It was a Bright and Beautiful october morning on wednesday. At 10 . A pro cession w is formed in front of Tho Calof Block and marching to tha enlivening Strain of music by Lobbs and Bijj Oford Cor. Get band proceeded to the Field belonging to capt.

Kirbt Loams seven of and Ono two Lionso team competed for Tho premiums offered for Tho Best skill in ploughing. Each team ploughed one eighth of a Aero and not a single team failed to Mako Good work. It was an Cucit ing sight to look upon to this trial of skill Between Tho competitors. Tho work was performed by All in an excellent manner and sons to elicit Tho Praise of Tho great number of spectators present. In some future number we shall give the awards previous to this we deem it Lair to say that no part of this interesting exhibition Aff irked us so much pleasure As Tho manner in which two Young lads Ono a son of John Millikan of Buxton 14 rears old and Tho Othor a son Harper Deoring of Saco of 11 Yoars per f read to duties of teamster Whilo the fathers of each Guin Ivo observer of Tho evils of had. And the benefits of Good husbandry and Bis address being sous ened highly with Tho Anttio Salt of wit seemed to give Groat satisfaction. It was in fact a most excellent address bounding in valuable suggestions and calculated to give Correct impressions of Tho importance and dignity of t 10 Farmer s occupation. It will be published by request of Tho society hereafter. Tho do Ivory of Tho address was pc coded by Tho execution of a Fino piece of Musio by the choir " the har Vest 1uk dinner. Or.

Swa shall probably publish them hereafter to omit further Rofer Cnoc to them except t say that Tho committees generally hooding Tho suggestion of the trustees had prepared their Rcpt its with greater Caro than Luu been Tho practice heretofore an improvement somewhat needed and which to Trust will to adhered to on future occasions. In closing our account which has extended itself very much to must not forget to heart Simony to the ability and Teal Tho comi Wittco of arrangements and Tho marshals. All their duties were performed in a manner to themselves and in such a Way As to promote Tho pleasure and com fort of those who attended Tho fair and show. To have not space for or time to prepare a reply to Tho Long editorial in this week s Democrat called out by our no Ico of Ita Union saving articles unnecessarily per onal and bitterns a the article we Are glad to find something at last in the demo Erat sophistical though it be which May be called an or Umont. The Democrat is now Bulj and Plain declaring for and sustaining by specious reasoning principles under which great moral wrongs can j by perpetrated ind political aggressions to made upon the Righta of the Poplo of Tho free states in making and extending Tho unequal led Oral representation. Sorrowful As is Tho thought that to l a of men among us so dead to the living principles of Christian Tyas to to willing to advocate doctrines of such a character Atill to Are glad to see them state their position with plainness. To can put up with bitterness of Sipriand offensive personality when men Watato even bad Doc Tiina with boldness. We shall take an Early Opportunity to reply declaring that neither Fidelity to constitutional obligations Justito to Tho Roplo of these states i a any other Reisui Call for the recognition of any principle under which slavery May be established in any state formed out of Tho territory of the United states and de Laring also that Tho admission of the Cor 1 wetness of such a principle would be a blow truck at god s moral Law would to con 1 Rary to the Genius of re publican institutions ind practically subvert Tho Dora Oratio Doc Rine of Man s Equality which is the Funda dental idea upon which our Constitution Iod form of government rest. A Austin Willey. The gentleman whoa Nam stand at the head of Lii article Lias been obliged by de Clining health to leave the editorial profession Ami Tho subscription lit of the Portland inquirer the paper which he has Ion and ably conducted Haa Betori transferred to or. Peck of the Temperance journal. The last number of Tho inquirer contains Bis valedictory the major part of which we give below. Tho withdrawal of or. Willey Leavea us at Thia Limo the old est in service political editor in Tho stale or. Drew of the Rural intelligencer and or. Holmes of the Farmer Hare wielded the editorial pen longer but the papers they conduct Are not political. When to com mended our editorial labors in the journal at Augusta More thin thirteen yer ago or. publishing the Liberty Standard at Llanllowell and our Early acquaintance with him commencing at a Timi when the country was agitated with the of annexing Texas was not of a character to give us a favourable opinion of the Utility of his i ports As a practical anti slavery Man or to Lead us to look upon him As possessed of a very charitable disposition. We were then ardently in favor of the election of or. Clay for the presidential office and looted upon his Elevation As the Only in Vns by which Tho country could be saved front entering upon that propagandist of slavery which has since been foisted upon and Mado an it Wero the leading policy of the Federal government. Or. Willey during that excited canvass honestly though unwisely As we then supposed and a have never seen reason to alter our Opinio took grounds against or. Clay assailing him and the party which supported him with great bitterness and this gave Rise to Sone Sharp editorial passages Between us of lot Tho most pleasant nature. Our first ill pies ions of him obtained under such Cru in stances Wero of course not so Lav Tracie an Thev should have been and to Lould not though always awarding to him hints to of purpose appreciate the so Ringh of his Devotion to the cause Lor which Hoha Laboid so incessantly and ably for Row More than sixteen years. More int innate acquaintance Wilh the Man and Espe idly i during the past few years when to litre Laboured together in the same Field in n practical Way to prevent the spread of hankering curse of slavery has softened if not entirely disappointed our p Judic a and at Ihu time when he u leaving he yield worn out with service with impair of health a scanty Purso 0, How Many Fotre Are similarly situated to can think of him Only As the Stern uncompromising foe to slavery who Hai with equal honesty and ability for Long years fut ight the Battles of Freedom Wilh a Martyr j Power and spirit. We Bury deep in the Waters of Lethe All unpleasant memories and enshrining Only in our heart the remembrances of that which has been pleasant in our Intercourse we part Wilh our editorial brother Wilh re Gret and with Tho expression or the wish that beneath some More venial Sun and in a Milder clime to which we understand he hastens he May find that restoration to health which lie go to seek and that he my y us Llva to sen Ilov Roll o r in once of that blessed Light of Freedom whose mom Lotfin now to by breaking. Un.t.3r the coming of Lii Chi has Long Laboured and fervently prayed. We copy from his parting words to the patrons of Tho inquirer the following ii is hard b terminate our relations with you cemented us they Are by Long years of Mutual toil and sacrifice in one of the no. Blest causes thai Ever engaged human Effort. Wilh thousands we shake hands As old part ing friends Only do. In hundreds and hundreds of your families we have invariably met such erecting and such Blessing As bind us to All with ties of precious memories too Strung for time to sever. We boost of More Strong personal friends Here and among lie choicest population of the state than any other live Man and that shall to a Consolation. It Iii hard for in old Soldier to give up i Rifle just is Victory dawns on Tho Field of protracted strife even though hoping before Long and somewhere to return to the com Bat. The tight of Over 51,000 of Best voters of Tho state embodied around those principles where but 193 Wero found in 18 40, renders it comparatively easy to retire a no rest. Over sixteen years of intense mental labor and endurance demand it and we must obey. We pause not for any self justification did strength permit it. Our arguments our labors our sacrifices Aie before Tho slate and the world. Most sincerely have we sought to do no Man injun Lico while unswerving integrity and Honor should Mark Ull our course. No doubt we have erred for More to our be ret than any other s. We have no complaints for injuries Norolah or than Tho Best Withes for All. No oppo nent will embrace the truth without Occum ing our Friend. Whether Tho cause to far is to were concerned has been conducted with nil the Wisdom and Success of which the Means and occasion admitted to argue not but in boasting Point to results and say to All if with no greater resources you could have elected More Tho whole Field of human we Fitro is before you try it. Not on to Rah will it Ever be known what Tho Early stages of this Reform have Cost. The snarl or Graves of those who led it Are to be their chief re Ord Here unless a country saved by Tsitir sacred heroism and Tho Giat Elul tears of an emancipated people should to realtor offer a tribute to their memories. Hut a meagre fraction is left to us Peru Nia Rily for All our toil but from the heart to thank god for permitting us to take the part we have in such a cause. To began by the Sid j of Tho crushed slaves and if god shall adjudge us faithful to Tho rights there plundered to rest peacefully for strength to do More. To part with our Exchange also with regret for they Havo Bei Omo almost a Neces nary of life. Especially Gratifying has it been to meet the excellent and Ablo list of paper in the state now enlisted in behalf of constitutional Liberty when to remember How Lonjo ours contended alone unaided by the sympathy of any other. All de Pend on having them a Lar Joe support. We entered upon this cause with the Clear conviction that it # m the Providence of god for the overthrow of that terrible slave system even now Little understood and every step since a but confirmed the opinion the requisite human Agency fal ters not.

We Hall but continue these remark being confined to no particular Date perhaps Ere this Noma one a remarked upon the Repi in lion of Lare property that " if the South votes thu she pay a tax Lor so very Well we will admit All that bul does it help the matter 1 if a Man at the North were Wotli 610,000, and would pay a direct tax for carrying seven vote could he or would you lot him do it 1 i j you know j to How much that tax paid by the Booth amounted ? by revering to our Book of fact Tor we have a Little Bock to set Down All the bits of information we set to find that for 66 years the South has paid As her slave tax for voting Only 1.258,543, while the North has paid s12,743.447 for no such a a Ivolene. Thirty nine years Liao since the last direct lax was i made while All the taxes Wei from 178 to 1816. But that idea of property s voting has not or t out of our head yet.

To Liui base usos have we come at last to will in their turn notice in general terms the further aggressions of slavery. The first aggressions of slavery were in the Constitution thu basis of representation and recognizing " involuntary we Cus again the second aggression in admitting slave states. The Constitution guarantees a Republican government to each of the several states and in thu next a real recognizes involuntary servitude. That is not grammar it Means either that the first docs not mean 11 publican or that involuntary servitude shall not mean slav Ery. Hut you will say h Guarani Sites does Noi make binding upon Stales to have a Republican form of government. Very Well but it does not to that. Florida was Norimi Ted it slate in 18-15, hut slavery did i of per Mit that she might at some future Day have a Republican form of government Lor it said and was no admitted into i hit Union that Tho legislature should never emancipate a slave nor prohibit slaves from being transported thither.
