Vermont Antiiiuarian Society, cannot fail (o in

ants of Allen nnd Warner, Lnugdon and Starke.
They servo to keep in remembrance the heroic
achievements and patriotic sacrifices of our har
dy and chivalrous ancestors: j
Tho following anecdo(c of John Lanuuo.v af
fords a noble example of the patriotism of tha( de
voted friend of American Indepe.ndeiico, at this
hour of trial and danger. The Provincial Leg
islature was in session at Exeter, when the appal
ling news of the fall of Ticonderoga arrived. '
The members of that body were disheartened ;
the public credit was exhausted ; thero wero uo
means to subsist even a single regiment, provid
ed one could be raised. The men of Now Hamp
shire had already credited themselves to the ex
tent of their ability. John Lnngdon was, at that
time, Speaker of the Ast'Ciubly, and addressed
tho House as follows :
"I have three thousand dollars in hard money;
I will pledge my phi to for three thousand more ;
1 have seventy hogsheads of Tobago rum, which
shall be sold for the most it ttill bring. These
arc-at the scrvico of (he Rla(o, If wo succeed
in defending our fire-sides and homes, I may bo
remunerated ; if wo do not, thu property will bo
of no value to me. Our old friend Starke, who
so nobly maintained (he honor of our Statu at
Bunker Mill, may safely bo tripled with the con
duct of the enterprise ; and wo will check tho
progress of Hurgoyne."
This noble proposal infused new life into the
assembly; and in a few days, by menus of the
private funds furnished by John Langdon, a Un
assembled and on its march tor tho
much honor cannot bo awarded to our brave of-
ficeis nnd soldiers for their gallant behavior, in I
advancing through fire and smoke, and mount
ing breastworks supported by cannon. Had ev-'
ery man been a Charles the lJJth, or an Alcxan-1
dor, they could not have behaved moru gallantly.
1 cannot particularize any olliccr, ns they all be
haved with the greatest spirit. Cols. Warner &,
Herrick, by their intelligence and experience,
rendered mo important services; audi desire
tlie'y maybe recommended (o Congress. As 1
promised in my orders, (ha( the soldiers should

members of the institution. The rapidity of the

course delivered by Mr Simpson was astonish

which took place at Maryborough last week. A '
man named Cameron had circulated some im
proper assertions, calculated, in tho opinion of
tho fair villagers, to affect tho characters of sev
eral of them, and which roused them to such a
pitch of exasperation as to make thuni discnid
the moro tardy operation of tho law, and resolved
upon inflicting at once summary and severe pun
ishment an the culprit. l'"or this puiposc, the
whole women and children of tho village rose rn
masse on Monday week, and proceeded to the
house of (ho hapless wight, who, much to his
terror, had got some hint of (heir intentions, just
as tho infuriated crowd approached the door. To
fly from tho house was impossible ; and while tho,
object of public vengeance stood paralyzed and"
trembling ut tho magnitude of the danger, his
wife snatched him up by the "cuff of the neck,"
and in an instant had him locked up in her
clothes chest, and at the same time sitting on

having burst into tho house, every chink and
comer was searched, until at last his place of
