other corporations are Anti-Democratic, nnd dan
serous lo their rights nnd liberties though nl

ground of hostility to tho cause of Internal Im

cned the penpleupon this head, they throw ofl'ihc
mask, nnd by the aid of their gifted correspondent.
mm. by appealing to the most miscrnblc preiudi
ces, to raisj an opposition to any system of inter
nal improvement, and especially ngninst n project
which has already raised the hope ofthousands in
Vermont and for the success or which, every in
telligent man who has the least glow of patriotism
or desire for the prosperity of our state, must dc
voutly prayTor. I
1 had supposed that no doubt existed as to the
advantages which our State would derive from
the connection nrLake Champlain, bv n rnilioad
through our limits, lo Boston but in this it seems
I nm much disappointed. The sapient nnd far
seeing author ofthe communication above nllude.I
to, (and who has assumed the title of 'Plow Jog
ger' that ho may the more cflrcluilly deceive) asks
with the apparent simplicity or n 'Jonathan Raw'
ortwo centuries ngone, 'Of wl nl bem fit nre these
works of improvement to the Vermont firmer?
and with n sagacity wotthy of -Toney Lumpkin,'
announces that ho has discovered tint this is
'project' by which 'the Grem Mountain boys nre
lo be enlisted in a scheme which will deposite the
profits ol their sweat nnd toil in the pockets ofthe
city gentry ol Boston nnd Lowtll.' By a pio
cess worthy of himself, he has also demonstrated
by oclual computation, that by n reduction of 50
per cent, on transportation, tho actual profits of i
our farmers' produce would be materially dimin
ished. One evidence ofthe great danger to be appre
hended by the people of Vermont, in view of this
project' according to this intelligent 'Plow Jog
ger' is in the fact that at the Convention held nt
Brattleboro. a 'right smart chance' or Lowers.
Merchants, nnd Tavcrn-ICcepers were piesent
took an active pait in the business ofthe Conven
tion, and manifested un, anxiety in the objects of
the meeting. This is truly an alarming fact but
hear him further. Ilo says that a Lawyer a
live and breathing Liwycr! from Boston, had the j
assurance to present himself before nnd address
the Convention, and that he 'then nnd there' actu
ally stated that his city (Boston) felt n deep
interest in this matter, and would be benefitted by
the consummation of the object under considera
tion! It would bo impossible for me to describo
my nstonisbment nt the nudacity 1 of this Mr Der
by in making this astounding statement, in the
presence of that respectable and intelligent nnd
patriotic .' band or Vermnnters who were present
upon that occasion nnd I nm vol surprised that
onn otjutl the intelligence nnd liberality or feel
ing nf this Windhmn County 'Plow Jogger'
should therefore exclaim there you see brother
faruers, (I think tho farmers will feel proud of
wie reiuuonsnipj 'Uostoti is to be benefitted by
'his measure at your expense' and you now see
that it is a 'scheme to place the profits oriirfaj awl
toil into the poekds ortho eiVy gentry or Boston
and Lowell. Shame I tint a m tn in Vermont I

to indicate a very low standard of mornl feelings.
