A commend them to the per and doubt not they will meet the a Proba lion of o n Reader throughout the state Many Able and admirable speech a were delivered on the occasion. It is impossible in the of chef limit assigned a to give even a a Ketch of the remarks of any of the speaker. We would a Aly observe that without design a to be invidious the a peer he of messes. Gannet Drake Ard Bowlin of Missouri or. Lovell of do i Uroe or Clagett of Keokuk judge William of Muscatine and messes. Starr and Dodge of Burlington were happily conceived and in All recipe ctr creditable alike to themselves and the occasion. The retiring speech of gov. Hemp a Tead was exceedingly appropriate. We May at some future time dwell More at length upon the Gratifying spirit which prevailed and the judicious policy pursued by the convention. At present we have neither time nor space to May More than that it was the most talented convention which has Ever assembled in any portion of the West and we Are sanguine in the belief that its labors will speedily result in establishing a new and important epoch in the Prosperity of the whole West Ommett ltd right. To insure Success in any undertaking there is nothing More important than that we begin in the proper manner. Indeed this is an almost a dispensable in requisite to a Happy and successful termination of any of our plans and purpose and now with the experience of the older nettled states and cities of the country it would be unpardonable if our Youngs ate of Iowa should pursue a policy which she we id finally have to abandon and adopt some other in place thereof. In looking around not Only upon our own City advancing As she is in her me Tripoli Tan strength but upon the other cities towns and Village of the state and the country Gen. Rally it is a source of much gratification to find that oar people Are beginning their improvements in such a manner As that they May be permanent there is nothing like having a definite object in new in any undertaking whatever that May be the construction of a Railroad or the building of a dwelling House. The manner in which most of our East Ern cities Are Laid out clearly shows that it was done at random and without any reference to the future convenience and business of the inhabitant As Well As Timeir general appearance. With streets entirely too narrow for facilitating the Busi Ess that must be carried on to them and without any pretension to regularity they seem As it designed to bewilder the stranger in his per ambulation through them. And again throughout the entire Eastern part of oar country the farms Aie of every conceivable a has in the world and look is if expressly Laid out to try the skin of surveyors and Render it difficult for a person to know where to find the Boua Lane of his land. But we have fortunately escaped most of these difficulties and have oar cities Laid out in mathematical regularity and our farms present the appearance of a vast Bequer Board. It has been and with much truth remarked that a a order is heavens first Law a and in the things appertaining to this world it will hold equally Good. Upon the subject of education it must be a matter of no Small gratification to everyone who feels an interest in Haring an intelligent class of citizens that so Good a beginning has been male. Our school fund arising from the Sale of lands reserved to the state for that purpose and from the school tax is considerable arid rapidly increasing to that in the course of a few years we Hope to see a comfortable so tool House erected in every District and competent teachers employed at such a compensation As a did justify them in a a tending their time and talents in the Noble profession of instructing the rising generation in All the branches of study which will fit them for the stations of usefulness and respectability in society. In this respect our Young state is far ahead of some of those half a Century its senior in years. For while in Many d strict of the older states we find dilapidated wooden buildings called school Bouses and in some none at All Here we generally find a neat and comfortable Brick House in every District that is at All pretty Well populated in our City we have a Public school edifice that would do Honor to a much older and larger town than oars. And again in our state All denominations of religion Are Well sustained and the elegance and Coia Bodiou sees of the churches clearly evince that the people entertain a High regard for the a a a tits Lions of religion. In regard to our financial operations we think that the state has made a most judicious commencement by not increasing an indebtedness that would energies and exhaust her resources for years to come.

Most Pelee vt., oct. 11, 851. Gov. Williams had just transmitted his annual message to the legislature. He recommends an annual appropriation for the College of the state Ami again adverts to the militia upon whom All free states should rely for defence and says that in these Days when so much is said upon the subject of constitutional duty and obedience to the Laws of Congress lie is sorry that the constitutional provisions and the Law of Congress relative to the militia received so Little countenance. The increasing vice of intemperance is noticed acid a return to the old Law Lor sending common drunkards to the House of correction is advised. The legislature is apprised that new congressional districts must be constituted. The governor trusts the legislators will Bear in mind that they Are responsible to a a higher Law a and a higher Power than the people else their oath of office is a mockery. He regrets that conscience is scouted in these latter Days. He does not believe the people of Vermont entertain the notion that they Are absolved from any Law which happens to suit their views and wishes. Law must be enforced but it is to be remembered that the Laws Are themselves subject to Public opinion and the provisions of the Constitution and therefore May be changed or annulled. The Liberty of speech and the pc its to the utmost latitude must be allowed in order to enlighten Public opinion. Every attempt to repress this Liberty whether by Law or the exercise of patronage must be futile and can obtain no permanent favor from an intelligent people. To insure the constitutional test it is the province of the judiciary to determine the Laws unconstitutional and no individual or state should be discouraged from restoring to this tribunal. The governor thinks it not be to to boast much of attachment to the Constitution and the Union since overmuch Zeal in these respects May indicate that there is ground for sult Pinion but he notices that Vermont solicited admission to the Union adopted fully the Constitution and never had asked for any important amendments although solicited to do so and has never joined others in acts tendering to a violation of the Constitution. He Hopes Flat the cry of a danger to the Union a like the old cry of a danger to to Church in England is not to 1� made the pretext for Arbr itary measures or degrading submission. The fugitive slave of Congress and the Hareas Corpus of Vermont Are then discussed at considerable length. Of the constitutionality of the former the governor has doubts. Of the constitutionality of the latter he has none and there questions he would have lift for the decision of the judicial tribunals established by the Constitution.

A correspondent of the Blair Courty a whig furnishes that a a Aper with the particulars of an interesting incident of which be was an Eye witness. It occurred a few years ago on the line of the great internal improvements of that state. It is one of those scene of genuine kind Heah Edness which fills the mind with the involuntary consciousness that there is a something of the Angel still in our common nature. At the Point this Side of the Mountain where occurred the transhipment of a Tass enters from the West was moored a canal boat waiting the arrival of the train Ere Starling on its Way a a through to the East. The Captain of the boat a talk. A Hugh Sun Embr owned Man stood by his Craft superintending the labors of Bis men when the cars rolled up and a few moments after a party of about a half a dozen gentlemen came out and deliberately walking up to the Captain addressed him something after this Wise a sir we with to go East but our further Progress to Day depends on you. In the car we have just left is a sick Roan whose presence is disagreeable. We have been appointed a committee by the passengers to ask that you will deny this Man a passage in your boat. If he goes we remain what say you a a gentlemen a replied the Captain. A i have heard the passengers through their committee. Has the sick Man a representative Here a to this unexpected interrogatory there was no answer when without a moment a pause the Captain crossed Over to the car and entering beheld in one Corner a poor emaciated worn out creature whose life was nearly eaten up by that ranker worm consumption the Many a head was bowed in his hands and he was weeping. The Captain advanced and spoke to him kindly a ooh sir a said the shivering invalid looking up his face now lit with trembling expectations a a Are you the captains and will you Lake me god help me the passengers look upon ii e As a breathing pestilence and Are so unkind. You see sir i am dying a no of if i Ain spared to reach my Mother. I shall die Happy. She lives in Burlington sir and my journey is More than half performed. I am a poor Printer and the Only child of her in whose arms i wish to die a a you shall go a replied 1he Captain a if 1 lose every passenger on the trip a by this time the whole crowd of passengers were grouped around the boat with their Luggage piled up on the path and they themselves awaiting the decision of the Captain before engaging their passage. A a moment More and that Denison was made known As they beheld him coming from the cars with the sick Man cradled in his arms. Pushing directly through to the crowd with his dying Burden he ordered a Matrassi to he spread in the choicest spot of the boat where he Laid the invalid with All the care of a Parent. That done the Captain directed the boat to be prepared for starting. But a new feeling seemed to to sets the astonished passengers that of shame Ami contrition at their inhumanity. With one common impulse they walked aboard the boat and in a few hours after another committee was sent to the Captain entreating his presence among the passengers in tie Cabin. He went and from their arose a White haired Inan who with tear drops standing in his Eye told that rough Sun Embr owned Man that he had taught them All a lessons that they asked his Foi Guvness. It was a touching scene. The Fouta n of True sympathy was broken up in the heart of nature and its Waters swelled up choking the utter Ruce of All present. On the a purse was made up for the sick Man with a a Good Speed a on Bis Way Home to die in the arms of his Mother the True hearted Captain of the boat was Gen. Samuel d. Cams and the above incident it Worth remembering. Letter room Hikin new York express Days a a we understand from Lexington. By that or.
