At half past ten the procession commenced its
march to the union meetinghouse, escorted by a
band of music from Acworth, N. II. The taste
and regularity with which the procession was
conducted, reflected much honor upon tho mar
shals of the day. After listening to an appropri
ate and highly patriotic oration, and several pieces
of music which were sung with spirit, and with
the understanding also, the procession then moved
to tho stone factory, which was very politely of
fered them by Mr Wilson, a whig, after the public
house had been denied them by Mr Harris, a whig
of a deeper die. Here n splendid and sumptuous
entertainment was scrvod up by Mr Minard. The
cloth being removed, the following regular toasts
were offered.
I. The day ice celebrate, which proclaimed a
nation free : ever sacred to liberty, and never to
lie forgotten but with the total cxtinguijhinent of
the last spark of virtue, and tho last lingering ray
of rational liberty.

favor and will again.
10. The present distress, said by some to bo
caused by the specie circular, and by the removal
of the deposites by President Jackson. Wo deni
ocrats know it is caused by a combination of the
great Bank asistocracy to change the adminislra
lion and entail on the people a Hag currency.
11. The American principle, equal rights and
equal privileges, based upon the virtue and intel
ligence of the people, it shall live when the mon-1
uincnts of Wlugcry, and Bank crruption, shall
have crumbled into dust.
12. Bank Democrats, baser than Judas, they
would sell our liberties, not for silver, nor for
gold, but for 6anc rags.
13. The Orator of the day. May he be in the
democratical circle, what a John Howard has
been in tho benevolent circle.
The following volunteer toasts were offered :
Jed Davis. Our present administration.

from the committee, informing him of his np
pointment as President of the day, was presented
and read.
Townshend, July 4th, 1837.
Gent. Yours of the 2!)lh ult. informing mo of

auspicious occasion at the Port, were J not ncccs
sarily detained. And I certainly should liave
been more llian usually gratified with such an op
portunity, at the present time; for, believe me,
this is a moment of no small concern in the an
nals of America. Wc are about to decide on
great and important questions, as it respects the
permanency of this Republic, and liberal senli-
incnls throughout the world. Tho question is
whether the people are to govern themselves, or
whether this great nation is hereafter to lie gov
erned by an unprincipled monopoly. Por there
cannot be a doubt, that should the advocates of a
Hank be able in succeed in the establishment of a
U. S. Dank, which has the control of the revenue,
such an institution, instead of being an auxiliary
to the government, will emphatically rule, dictate,
and control the government and the people.
Where then will be our liberty? Where then
will be the benefit of an cleclivo franchise?
Gone, gono forever, mingled in a Bank, not

timent. J. BOItEUTS.

After the toasts were presented, Mr W. Barker
and II. Wheeler briefly addressed the meeting
upon the important subject of Banks; stating
definitely the cause of the present distress in llie
money market, and the course which the people
ought to pursue to rid themselves of the evil.
No accident occurred through tho day to mar
tho general joy; every thing was done decently
and in good order, and at an early hour the citi
Izens retired to their several homes with mutual
i good feelings, filled with no bpiiht but the pure
spirit of democracy.

"I won't," said the deacon. Enoch held on like
a leech. "Dear Deacon Mixer," said he, just lot
me have n taste." "Not a drop, Hunlctt," an
swered tho deacon, stamping his foot, nnd break
ing his toddy stick in his anger. " Well, then,"
cried Enoch, running his nose in the taverner's
face, "just let a poor fellow gel a small of your
breath, Deacon Mixer." This drunken wag, who
knew and remembered every body, recognised
Mr L. iu tho grave yard ; and from him, Mr L.
lenrned the history of many of tho villagers whom
he had formerly known ; and in their history,
learned too, tho awful ravages of intemperance.
At length, keeping his eye fixed on the object of
ins seaicli, ho asked Enoch whero Squire Lu Bar
on now lived.

Well, as I was saying, the old creature pushed
open the door.
This devil's liird of a doctor was hauling his
poor wife about by the hair of her head, and tho
children wcie crying for their lives. He ordered
the old negro woman out of the house. But tho
good creature's feelings drove her on. She flew
at him like a tiger; "Let her alone, you dirty rum
sucker," she cried. ' Many's the' pond meal of
victuals Pvo had in her father's kitchen, and
her old mother's been kind to me many a lime,
and I wont sec her abused by man or brute."
So she caught him by the throat, and drove him
up in a comer among a parcel of gallipots and
bottles. She was full a match for any sober man,
and could whip a regiment o' drunkards aforo
breakfast any day. A neighbor came in and took
away the wife and children for the night. The
doctor was in a boiling' rage, and threatened to
bring old Ciloe tip afore the court, for a vagitfiit
and a forlunc-lcller. The old woman ncver
wanted a ready answer, so she told hitn sho was
afraid of nothing but his physic, and that sho

years; and this grave-yard is called the deacon's
farm ; and here, step this way, Master Isaac, a
piece; here is the Squire's head-stone." "Is it
possible?" said I. "Was he intemperate?"
"Wery, wcry," saiil Enoch, with a ludicrously
solemn expression upon Ii is countenance. "And
pray tell me what has become of the Squire's
family." "The old lady is gone; she look a lit

witness the closing scene, tho death and burial of
Nancy Lo IJ.iron.. The whole is inexpressibly
touching.
The eoflin was of the most inexpensive kind; it
was without any tablet to designate the tenant
within; and its cover was of one entire piece,
which had been slid down from off the face, that
all who were so disposed, might take a parting
look at the deceased. The sexton, with the assis
tance of the carpenter, wns proceeding lo adjust
the cover, and secure it with common nails, a
process not'uniisual in some of our remote- villa

the superior cost of a screw is taken into consid
eration at the funerals of the poor. "Stop," said
llie old Chine, ns she raised Utile Susan iu Iter

sorry for his death, though his wife, notwith
