For Senators Windham County,
JOHN ROBERTS ELEAZER MA V PAUL CHASE.
(TT Repealed Inquiries have lcn put to us why It is
that the journals of the House of Representatives have
not been printed and distributed before this. Formerly
tho distribution was made as early as March or April.
It Is now mid-summer and no journals as yet have ap
peared. At this peculiar juncture it is all Important that
the people should know how their public servants voted
last fall on tho several questions of banks and corpora
tions. Tho whig rrcsscs have charged the democrats
with tho sin of chartering all the bank?, and they would
fain make us responsible for nil the rotten manufacturing
corporations which have been created in this State for
the last sis years. Let the journals be published, distri
buted and read, and the people will soon learn where the
fault lies. We shrewdly suspect however that the distri
bution, if aver, will not be made until after the Septem
ber elections. A whig Clerk, whig Printer, and a corps
pt whig Sheriff! will delay to the latest period possible, a
(distribution among the people of tho
icasiicss'oi tnetr ncpreseniatives. It may be, however,
(hat some good reason can bo assigned for this delay, and
we call upon Mr Miner of Manchester to make known
how and why it is that the journals arc not already in
the hands of the different Town Clerks in the State. If
the fault rests with the Clerk or Sheriffs let the people
understand it, so that these public functionaries may be
visited with a prompt dismissal next fall.
3f"The subjoined list embraces probably but little more
than two thirds of tho members present at the democratic
County Convention at Faycltcvillc on the 8lh inst. The
names were collected at a late hour, just upon the eve of
the dissolution of tho Convention and after many of the
members hail left for their homes. Enough however are
here presented to convince the exclusively patriotic whigs
that the recent paper panic has not entirely dissipated the
democracy oven in this old federal county. Some few it
ecrms arc willing and bold enough to stand out in defence
of their common country and her republican institutions.
Any one familiar with the citizens of this county cannot
fail to notice among the names enumerated below, some
of tho most respectable farmers and mechanics in the
country men of humble pretensions, unassuming man
ners, and simple, industrious habits, but of sound sense
and sterling worth. If they arc 'office-holders,' it happens
to be such offices, and such only, as Whig Legislatures
have repeatedly conferred upon them in consideration of
their honesty and capacity. They have nothing to boast
of their bloated opponents claim all the wealth, talent
and religion in the'land, as their fathers of old were wont
to do; and even, pharisec-likc, thank God that they are
not like other men, particularly the humble, vulgar Dc;
mocracy. With all this the republican farmers of old
Windham are content, knowing that sooner or later the
overbearing party of privilege, monopoly and power will
be crippled and trodden down by the honest-hearted De
mocracy of tho country, who are struggling for the su
premacy of equal rights and privileges.
Wo invite tho freemen of this county to examine the
annexed list carefully. Wo beg to know if the men who
lul.ro enrolled fticmeclVes arc not quite as honcsE'arid
patriotic, indrcd do they not represent quilo as much
moral worth as their opponents 7 Hove they not as deep
i an interest in tho stability of republican institutions, and
the permanency of a republican government as certain
modern whigs, think ye 1 Aro they to be branded as lev
ellers, jacobins and agrarians 1 Do they desire to rc
cnact the bloody and ferocious scenes of the French revo
lution? Honest-hearted and cool-headed farmers, wc
look to you for an answer.

Published by F J Huntington d Co.
Tho author of this work has rendered a most valuable
service to the community by its publication adding yet
higher to already high claims, to the gratitude of pa
rents and teachers, for her assiduous and skilful endea
vors to aid and stimulate the youthful mind in tho acqui
sition of useful knowledge. The manner in which scien
tific truth is presented in this volume, combines, with
great success, clearness with brevity. The terms of the
science arc happily divested of the repulsive aspect which
they wear to beginners, and yet are made to retain all
their exactness and precision. There is just enough of
incidental remark to interest and engage the attention of
the young student, but not to divert and distract it. The
illustrations aro drawn, as far as possible, from facts and
operations coming under his every day observation, and
Ids own experience is thus made the easy medium of con
veying to his mind a knowledge of the principles which
govern the material universe. By being made acquaint
ed with the properties of those inanimate bodies with
which he is hourly brought in contact, and witli the laws
which regulate their motions, he is put in possession of the
key which, if pcrseveringly used, will unlock not only
the machinery which human invention has put in opera
tion, to aid human labor and industry to an extent almost
incredible, but the machinery of the heavens also, the
causes that keep in motion and bind in fixed oibits the
great trsjti of wortdsand tvttcmn of '-- -composing
me universe. "Among the great varielyof excellent works
on the subject of Natural Philosophy, wc know of no one
so judiciously calculated "for the use of schools" as this I J
and wc think no teacher, on examination, will have any
hesitation in making It a Class Jlook in this highly im
portant and interesting branch of Instruction, the uses
of which arc too obvious to be mentioned, since our com
fort and safety depend upon a knowledge of the powers
and properties of bodies j and a right study of naturo no
only dispels a thousand supeistitions, but affords a most
striking and interesting proof of nn intelligent govern

It is amusing to witness the game that is now playing
by two distinguished Monopolists in this Probate District.
Their policy is the same now as that adopted successfully
by them some years since. We remember the time very
distinctly when Citizen Birchard drummed together a
little bevy of politicians at Fayctteiille and nominated
t.,i, iri.i r...t. . ...ju.i.r..n in., mi-
"" " a" "
good people or this county were amazed at the nomina
tion, not knowing that the Squire had ever acted politi
cally with the Citizen nnd his fellows. However he was
properly endorsed and in duo timo elected, not by (ho
votes of this county, but of other and remote districts
where the Squiic was better known than at home, and by
those too who could better appreciate his talents and vir
tues thun his own neighbors. After two years laborious
service the Squire, with great and unexampled self de
nial, retired to enjoy his otium sine dignitate. His man
tic fell upon Citizen Birchard, who, with all that peculiar
meekness, humility and lowliness which becometh those
that are exalted above their fellows, received tho title of
Honorable, and was duly and formally seated with 'grave
and reverend seigniors."
Tho same disinterested arrangement has just been en
tered into in, relation to a vacanry in the whig Senatorial
ticket iiiotCfteiUly by !( uff v;ui.ATI.j.
The Citizen lias started the Squire, and in due course of
timo the Squire will give way for the Citizen. So we go
'like master like man !t or the old Connecticut 'ride
and tie system very successfully introduced into politics
by the Squire and the Citizen. A marvellous proper farce
to be enacted on the fust Tuesday of September next.
We arc happy to inform the Ladies and Gentlemen of
Brattleboro, that Mr Zuboffand Mr Gawronski, two young

will hold a Concert on to-morrow (Friday) evening.
From the satisfaction they have elsewhere given, e arc
induced to predict that they will afford a rich treat to the
lovers of vocal and instrumental music. And as they

Mr Editor: I noticed with pleasure, in the laft number
of the Democrnt, two resolutions purporting to have been
presented and discussed by the Windham County Tempe
rance Society at its meeting in Brattleboro village on the
11th inst. I hope, sir, that those resolutions were adopt
ed by that body, and trust that tin sentiments therein ex
pressed will meet with the cordial approbation of every
friend of temperance in the state of Vermont.
The Temperance Reform has now reached a crisis that
demands prompt, energetic and decisive action. Let all
the friend! of humanity, good order and sound principles
now bestir themselves look about them sec what can
be done and then do it. At the last session of our Jegis-1 prized by gentlemen and ladles of a hrtain age. My

reference of the subject to a future legislature and they
did it, they said, "with a strong hope, and indeed with a
confident expectation that tho friends of this most impor
tant and desirable reform w-uld then furnish satisfactory
evidence, that the change is decidedly called for, and will
be effectually sustained by public sentiment." Now shall
our supincnesa disappoint them ? Shall wc, by our indif
ference, permit this opportunity for doing good to pass by
and not improve it? 1 hope not. We shall have able and
influential men to present and sustain our petitions. Let
every 'cold water boy' that quenches his thirst with that
wholesome beve'age which issues from the cool and lim
pid springs of the Green Mountains, now be active let
addresses be delivered memorials circulated for subscri
bers in every town, village and hamlet in Vermont, and
forwarded to the next legislature, that it may be satisfied
of the correctness of public sentiment. It needs but one
general and consolidated effort, and the Statutes of Ver
mont will no longer say to her citizens, " if you are wil
ling to pay for the privilege, we will authorise you to en
gage in an employment which cannot bo carried on with
out iniquity, and which may justly be pronounced, as it
regards the public, a species of political suicide."

"At the Methodist Conference, held this year at Nan
tucket, there were one hundred and fifty ministers pre
sent. A resolution was passed JjOt to interfere with the
abolition question." '
As this paragraph, which wc havo seen in several pa
pers, may create a false impression, we copy it for the
fiurpose of contradicting the statement contained in the
ast sentence. No such resolution was passed, nor any
other on the subject of abolition. The question of slave
ry came before the Conference by the presentation of a
large number of memorials praying the Conference "to
bear its solemn testimony apainst this great sin) and al
so to memorialize the next General Conference upon this
subject, that such measures mnf be taken by that body
as will clear the Methodist K. Chorch from all participa
tion in the great and crying sin of American slavery."
On a motion to refer these mcrrofials to a committee to
consider and report, the presiding Bishop decided that ho
was bound by the decisions of tbTDeiieiiil Conference to
prevent the agitation of this subject, and he therefore re
fused to put the question, and jslso to allow an appeal
from his decision. There was tljrrcfore no action on the

Kemper, of Cottage Farm, dated
South Haiiover, July Cth, 1837.
"I set down in haste to give you some account of a
scene the most terrific and appalling I have ever wit
nessed! Our village that yesterday was peaceful and
cheerful is now in ruins. Ycslcrdav evening nbout six
o'clock the heavens wore the appearance of a coming
storm, ana in one Hour a most tearlul tornado burst upon
us, sweeping over our village in devastation, (though
praised be a merciful God, not in death.) The scene was
terrific beyond my powers of description. The boarding
house here has the whole of one pablc end torn out. Mr
Young's store, a substantial brick building, is a heap of
ruins Dr Matthews' house is taken off at the eves the
house in which Mr Bishop lived, on the hill, is torn to
fragments one end of Colonel Morrow's house is torn to
the ground Mr Chever's house is torn to pieces the
College roof is riddled, and the .i'inp level with

fifteen other buildings, dwellings, out-houses, shops, &c.
arc destroyed. Trees of all sizes and kinds are torn up
and dashed to atoms. There are hut few buildings in the
place, especially in the northern and central parts of it,
whero all the most important buildings arc, that arc not
racked and seriously injured. The streets are covered
with fragments. This was tho work of certainly less
than five minutes yet wonderful as it nppcars, amidst
the crash of falling buildings, the fury of tho bursting

A FnioiiTrifL Chime The Mercer Luminary of the
Sth inst. records an instance of precocious depravity, al
most too revolting to brlicvei and yet the editor states
that it is well authenticated.
"One day, a few weeks since, a family in Venango
county, near the Mercer county line, wcie absent from
i home, leaving ueiiiuu none out iwo small uoys, one sev
en, and the oilier only nvc years ot age. On their return
in the evening, they found the eldest boy in the house,
and his hi other being absent they inquired for him, but
received no satisfactory answer lo their interrogatories.
They then commenced search, and after some time found
. his dead body a shoit distance from tho house, coveted
over with brush l Alter tins discovery, the elder boy
confessed that he had purposely shot his brother with a
gun which was left loaded in the house, dragged him to
the place where ho was found, and covered him with
brush 1 He then returned to the house, wiped the blood
offtho floor, and waited the return of his parents. Hor
riblo as this picture is to contemplate, what is still more
strange, the hoy shows no signs of remorse fur the com
mission ot the lilonuy tleed ; but on the contrary, when
remonstrated with for his unnatural conduct by his
mother, he threatened I: .r life, and added that he would
be the death of her some day!"

past in the towns ol lolland and Uranville, mass, in con
sequence of the murder of u Mr Fuller of the former

covery of the body, Hall absconded. Ho was however
arrehted about ten miles distant, in the north part of

thoroughly. Hall, with his two or three associates, were
examined before three Justices in West Granville on bat

had any thing to do with the quarrel between Fuller and
Hall, they were liberated, and Hall wus committed to the
jail in bpringneld, to await alurlher trial.

JTuiprovftl Water Wheel.
nHE subscriber having obtained letters patent for a
-L new ami valuablo improvement in the ronMrurtion
of Water Wheels, which he denominates the Twain
Wheel, would invite Ihose interested to give it a llioroiigh
examination. This Wheel is constructed with two, per
pendicular shafts with buckets or floats at the bottom
(when placed in a perpendicular position,) and the water
is applied to the centre so as to exert its power upon lith,
thereby greatly increasing the powct. Tho wheels may
bo placed either in a perpendicular or horizontal position
as circumstances shall require, and arc applicable to mill
or any kind of machinery. So far as this improvement
has been tested it has afforded the highest satiihvctlon.
(Certificate of Messrs Fetch.)
Tin's may certify that we have put one of Mr Elpar'.
patent .Twain Wheels in operation and is now in use at
Fetch's Mills in Winchester. We think it goes with lcs
w-ater than any other quick motion wheel now to be found.
It has more than met our expectations, and we are satis
fied that it will be of great use to the public.

"The true riches of life are Health:'
TT7TE know that health, and ability to labor,'"! the
VWealth bf tho great mass uf the people in this, as in.
most other countries. To preserve, therefore, that health.
by natural means, is a grand, moral and political schcino,
to Mini which, requires our utmost attention.
The unprecedented success which has resulted from
the adoption of Brandreth's Pills, during a period of up
wards of 85 years, the numerous and cxtraordinsry cures
which they have performed upon hundreds uf individuals
whom they have rescued from almost inevitable death,
after they had been pronounced incurable by the most
eminent of the faculty justify Dr Brandreth, the propri
etor of this Vegetable Universal Medicine, in warmly
and conscientiously recommending it to the special noi
tice of the public.
Dr Brandreth wishes mankind to consider this truth,
that health depends on the state of purity in which tho
blood is kept, every part of the body being supplied daily
with new blood from the food consumed, consequently,
according to the purcness of that blood, so must the state
of the body be moro or less healthy. To obtain, there-
fore, the most direct purifier of the blood, is a questiun of
no litttc importance to every individual.
That Rrandrcth's Pills are the most direct purifiers of
the blood, there will be no doubt when it is known that
they have gained their present very extensive sale by
their own intrinsic merit; proved by the numerous cures
which they have accomplished in cvciy variety of disease.
The peculiar action of these pills is most surprising;
their opcinticns being more or less powcilul, according
to the purcness of the circulating fluid. On n person in a
fair state of health, who is only costive or slightly bilious,
they will be scarcely felt ; on the contrary, if the com
plaint be chronic, and the constitution bo much deranged,
the effect generally at firBt is most powerful, until the
system be freed of some of its most vitiated and t" 'd)
humours. This accomplished, doses sufficient trj v
two or three copious evacuations daily, will ;oon remove
the disease, and the constitution will be restored to a state,
uf health and renewed vigor.
These pills are recommended by thousands of person
whom they have cured of Consumption, Influenza, Colds,
Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Headache, Asthma, Gout, Rheu
matism, Nervous Diseases, Liver Complaint, Pleurisy,
Depression uf Spirits, Fits, Palsy, Dropsy, Ciuup, Coughs,
Whooping Cough, Quinsy, Cholera Morbus, Gravel,
Worms, Dysentery, Deafness, Scrofula, Eiysipelasor St
Anthony's Fire, Stilt Rheum, White Swellings, Cancers,
Tumours, Swelled Feet and Legs, Piles, Costivcncss, all
eruptions of the Skin, Female complaints uf every k.ind,
especially Obslructi'ohs, Relaxations, &c
