Sum. Island, July 3d, 18-13.
My dear Son
Wu luft Hoston at quarter past 2 o'clock
on the 1st instant, and experienced ti most
ngrcoablo run till yesterday at quarter past 1,
(it being foggy,) the Columbia struck on tho
H!ack Ledge, ono and a quarter miles dis
tant from this Island, at hi.'h water. When
1110 ItJe began to ebb, wo saw large rocks
on ino larboard side, about 10 fathoms dis
tant, and a long reef not a cable's length
from us. Before half lido down, these rocks
were 4 feet above tho water. Soon after she
struck, wo commenced thlowing over coal,
which was continued through the day. At
half past 2 we began fil ing our cannon ; in
half an hour after wo wero answered by a
musket, which relieved us from tho most
painful anxiety, as wo wero not quite certain
when: wo were, and Imped it might he from
tho land. At 4 o'clock tho fog lifted, mid
wo had (lie inexpressible satisfaction of see
ing a fishing schooner making for tho ship,
Willi a small boat 111 low. The captain of
1110 scnoouui, intcliings,) win, js the keeper
of tho lighthouse, came on board and gave
11s an account of our situation, which appear
ed any thing but Haltering. Wo soon con
cluded, as it was evident the Columbia was
in a rocky berth, that it was prudent to take
the ladies on shore, (14 in number,) besides
several in the steerage, and five or six chil
dren. This was accomplished at G o'clock,
without injury lo any ono; and hero we
found iwo small houses, a mile or more dis
tant from each other, inhabited by kind and
efficient people, who exhibit all the sympa
thy and care wo could desire. There are
no other habitations upon tho Island, which
is rough and barren. The nearest main land
is Harrington, 2.j miles distant. This morn
ing, at high tide, an attempt was mado lo
float tho ship, which proved unsuccessful,
nnd at half past two the Captain requested
iho passengers, (.30 in number,) who remain
ed on board, to go on shore aboul 40 hav
ing landed last evening. The passengers
nro now all on shore and one half the bu"
gage. The mails nro all here, nnd the re
maining part of tho baggage will be received
111 tho coarso of an hour.
llie opinion now is lhat the ship will bo
lost she is very much strained and has heel,
ed over considerably. W have 95 passen
gers, and 73 officers, crew, beloii"in"
to the ship, in all 1G8 souls. Tho Cnplaili
lias conducted himself with groat coolness
nnd courage, and displayed lhat energy and
magnanimity that belong to his noble pro
fesston. And now having no time lo write,
I have only to say that I deem our preser
vation t-xlraordinary 20 ards on either
eido of tlio ship, wiih a moderate breeze,
would have consigned us all to a waterv grave.
Through tho merev of A I
have all been spared, living monuments of
pniiecting earn; and wo and you, and all
our friends, should offer up to our Heavenly
Father, (ho homage of grateful hearts, for
this signal instanco of his sparing mercy.
The ladies and all thu passengers have con
ducted themselves in a manner lhat should
command our admiration. Wo shall send
an express to Halifax for a steamer, which,
I suppose, is nearly 200 miles we being
now about 210 miles from lioston. We
havo provision enough for tho present, and
can make ourselves lolerablv comfortable,
under all circumstances in which wo are
placed. Your mother and sister arn quite
well, and I am heller than could bo expert
cd uftor tho anxiety and fniguo tliroimh
which I havo passed. I shall writo the first
opportunity. Do not, however, bo anxious j
tho season is favorable, and I have no doubt
uo shall all be provided for.

Till: STATU SCHOOL FUND.
The subject of the Statu rchool fund, Ins with

lic attention. B.lls for its abolition have been
gravely considered by the Legislature for rev

and attempts have been made lo enlist political
pariioi on the onu side or the other, as it was- be
lievedtho mmuro would incut tho approbation
or disapptobution of the people. The subject is
without doubt one of the gravest import to the
ei.tiro population of the State. It invokes tho
consideration and proper disposition of millions
of the pcoplo's money, and tho subject should be
considered with no reference to any party now
in being, or to come. If the State school fund,

The progress of the canvass thus far in Fist

the part of Gov. Jones, unparalleled in the Ins.

Jones Ins infused into thu bosoms of the whole
Whig family, a fire that will burn, and burn,
and burn, until tlio shouts of victorious freemen
shall proclaim a now triumph for our principles
a now triumph for tho bold, determined and
noble champion of our cause. Vint wo will far
exceed our vote nf 1811 is absolutely certain, and
this ract is acknowledged by ihe candid oven
amongst our poht.cjfil opponents. Thu friends
or Col. Polk in thu West may doubt the cor
redness of our statement, but wo again as.sure
our Whig friends in other sections of the State
that conio what will como what may jlasl
Tennessee will nobly do her duly! The right
arm of the Whig puty in Tennessee aye !
the giant arm, is not p.ilsied by the treachery
which Ins in other States almost wrecked our
gallant patty nor has it been enervated by the
feeble efibrts of a Poll; to avert tho blow which
has hitherto, and will in all timo to come fall
upon himself, and the party for which ho is
wasting all his energies.
The Wings of Ihst Vonncssco feel the
heavy responsibility that rests upon them, and
they are prepared to meet it, as becomes men
and freemen I Their principles are dear to them
and every Whig siys of Gov. Jnnes as Gov.
Jones said of Clay: "a is our only choic!
Wo aro for hhn jfr wo aro for him lasttee

knows lhat ho has nothing to hope for in this
division of the .State. From his entrance into

nal contains Iho following. Tho death of iM.
La Ctoix has left lacaut several places in tho
Institute, tho Faculty uf Science, and tho Col
lego of France. Fiom what has already p issod,
it appears likely that these places will bo dis.
puled with sumo warmth. At tho Collo'o of
1 ranee, two candidates wero present, M. Libri,
Ihe successor of I'gendro at the Institute, and
who, eight years since, took iho placo of M. La
Cro'.v, and M. Liouville, member of Iho Acade
my of Scieni es and Asttouon-.or to the Paris Ob
servatory. Tho election was about to take
place, whon M. 0,auchy, formorly preceptor of
tho Duke do Bourdeaii.v, at Prague, and certain
ly a very distinguished geometrician, was urg
ed to placo himself among the caud.d.ites, by"a
parly, who, under present circumstances, would
bo xery glad to obtain a manifestation in accor
dance with thoir views. Fxcept that it was
proposed at a late hour, there wonld havo been
nothing extraordinary in M. Cauchy being a
candidate, if this illustrious geometrician 7iad
not already voluntarily placed himself in a very
peculiar situation. Being elected eomo years
sinco a member of Iho office of Longitudes, ho
refused tho oath, and tho placo has never been
tilled. At this tune, he declares that ho shall
persist in his refusal, and as iho government
naturally, on tho other side, will chooso to havo
tho law executed, tho persons who sustain M.
Cauchy seem lo have lor their object, rather lo
Icavo tho placo vacant, as has boon tho caso
with tho office of Longitudes, than to make
choice of a good professor Wo cannot howov.

tho prolessors of tho College of Franco will lend

.un imu .iiuitu upon 1110 grey haired
jiatriarch of Peacham should come from such
a source. General Mattocks is a man over
sixty years of ago. Ho lias spent his life
among the pcoile of Vermont. Ho has re
ieatedly received tin most unequivocal tes
timonials of thu confidence and respect of his
fellow-citizens. Ho has served them in the
Stato Legislature, on tho bench of tho Su
premo Court, and in tho Congress of tho
United Stales. And he has acquired a hold
iijion iho jiopular affection which is jiossessed
by very few men in Vermont. Tho char
acter, tho reputation, the good nanio he has
built ttji Invo boon tho work of his life. And
perhaps the young man who edits the Demo
crat has yet to learn that the pcoplo of ibis
Slate will not stiller the character of her
most cherished and honored citizens to hoso
sciurilously assailed with impunity. Their
verdict will be pronounced upon General
Mattocks next September. And tho result.
esiucially among his old constituents and
nei?hbors whom he has served so faithfully
in Congress will teach his rovilers a lesson
from which it is to bo hoped they may profit.
Tho following notice of General M. is
copied from the North Star, ono of the most
influential Loco Foco papers in ihe State,
and which is published in the old General's
neighborhood. It speaks a different Ian-
guago from that of tho "Trim Democrat."
Tho True Democrat proclaimed its inten
lion when it was first starlcd to bo decent iu
its treatment of pulitic.il opponents. Wo
hopo it may adhere to Ibis resolution more
strictly hereafter. '
THE " POET LAUREATE."
Mr. Caleb Gamago Eastman, editor of tho
Spirit of the Ago, nnd member of dipt. Ty

judicious observations in regard to the Whig
parly of Vermont, and tho candidates they
havo recently nominated for Stalo officers :

From this paragraph wo should infer that
tho major had just " emerged " from a fit of
poetic inspiration. Perhaps ho had just been
engaged in preparing thoso verses with which
it is said ho intends lo edify tho jieojilo of
tins jilace, noins votens, sonio timo in the
first part of next August. If tho poetry
which nu intends to read to us, bears nny ro
sotublanco to his. prose if it is written with
iho same classical purily and hoatilv, in iho
sanui calm, chaste, and elevated stylo if it
exhibits tho same gentlemanly courtesy, iho

kindly feolings towards his fellow men, which
beam so conspicuously from tho paragraph

Iheir intention lo vote for John Mullocks

there is not in New England a nioro staunch

THE RESTORATION OF THE
Now that the smoko has cleared away,
nnd an opportunity is presented lo survey
tho field of tho Into Tyler demonstration in
this Stale, it may bo well 10 cxamino into the
condition of tilings under tho now dispensa
tion. In 1810 upon iho accession of Gene
ral Harrison nobody expected any thing dso
than that the set of ancient cormorants who
had fattened upon (ho spoils " over sinco
tho beginning of tho Jackson reign, would be
replaced on two grounds; first that they
had been in long enough nt nny rato ; and
second that one parly had been in posses
sion to Iho total exclusion of tho oilier so
long, that upon a chaugo of administration, a
cliango also of such antiques was but sheer
justice, wen, tlio change was made. All
mo admitted it to ho tho " fato of war," and
el''iesced,o.copt perhaps tho aforesaid
cormorants, who had hocomo so habituated
tocxclusivo possession of tho emoluments of
office, that they regarded a removal, in tho
samo lighrns nn interference with vested
rights. Timo passed on. No one com
plained of Iho now administration of affairs
here, but most peojilo thought tho change sal
utary. The chief died, nnd was succeeded
by a thing elected with him for the samo
purpose tlmt is, lo carry out in his sphere,
Whig principles. Tho folly ofllus chancc
clovated compound of the ass, thojackall and
tho cat, taught him to heliovo that a summer
set would make him inherently, as well ns
oinciaiiy a great man. ui course, cunning
fellows (and Locos) wero not wauling to
ttcklo his ribs with their digits at the sugges
tion of tlib idea, for therein lay all their
hopes. 1 hoy had just been knocked down
by the People liko nine pins, without much
hopo ol being set up again, nnd to find, all
of a sudden, a setter up in tho ball that had
been used to howl them down, was like a
fountain in tho dcsctt lo these souls thirsting
for draughts of Treasury pap. In duo timo
tlio result of these disinterested counsels be
came visible here, and John Tyler of Vir
ginia, lately elected Whig Vice President
through ono of tho fiercest personal as well
as political struggles ever witnessed, is seen,
here in Vermont, at tho bock loo, of lhat
broken down hack C. P. Van Ness, turning
out the men who supported him, and repla
cing the lazy, useless nnd universally detest
ed dynasty which besides being obnoxious
to tho Whigs, had becomo a stench in the
nostrils of democracy itself, as recent events
abundantly prove. After this event, tho
word consistency should bo expelled the lan
guage. Utit let us sec what this immacuhito
contemner of all political corruption lias done
in Vermont. He has restored a Collector
who is notoriously unacceptablo to his own
political party, and who has squatted on his
post for twelve years, receiving the pay him
self, but doing tho duties of his office, by
icpuiy. no lias appointed as a Post Mas

tion between the Press and public office. A
man, loo, who, politically, is abundantly
proven by circumstances not to bo doubted,
to possess the confidence ofnobody. Helms
restored to the Light-House, n " bravo old
soldier," whose virtues in that behalf wero
wondrously tritmpetlcd at the timo he was
"pulled olT tho teat" in 1811, but whose
military exploilsare rather amusing when de
scribed by an eye witness. This man has
also adhered like a leech, until ho is pretty
well filled, while jioor Jones who has been
kicked out after two years service, is as
worthy, honest and capablo a man as ever
filled the place, and iu addition to bavin" a
large family, is jioor. Hut what is that to the
merits of a man who has sucked twelve or
rilteen years at the oil-can, and who vomited
with terror nt iho first firo at Dridccwater 1
Nothing of course. Heroes must he provi
ded for. Then let us see what judicious
changes have been mado in the Revenue De
partment. Wo learn that lhat old pensioner
George W. Hill who has been vegetating
among ihe bushes somewhere up in Lowell
or thereabouts, has emerged from his hole and
resumed his sinecure of $500 a ear. Then
:i very green parnnip, said to be a brother-in-law
to a certain Senator in this region,
has a sinecure at Troy, in addition to the old
ofiicer re-instated. This man lives at tho
end of a road, which " empties in " at one
end to tho main road, and in order to pay du
ties to hint, or get caught by him, peojilo are
obliged to travel up this "side cut," which is
a mile long, and then como tight back a"ain
to go on their way. Isn't th it nice ?
Of course the old lender at St. Albans is
re-inslatetl, and the iiipointment nt Ilule
Park, which was substituted for that at St,
Albans by Mr. Urigg,, is Mj continued and
changed of course. Then a new Revenue
Boat establishment has been organized at
hast Alburgh, making plenty of good daces
lor the bangers on. Our distinguished towns
man " Chief Justice Parsons " has been bil-
lettcd upon Richford, whereat the Democra
ry there are awfully incensed. A centlc
man of very exemplary character takes tho
office at Swanlon, and another from this
County goes to Alburgh. Nono havo csca
Jied the besom of reform except tho rem
nants of tho old dynasty, who were permit
ted uy Judgo Uriggs to remain. Even Mr.
Colby, a gentleman of unimpeachable char
acter, appointed at Derby on tho resignation
of Mr. Prentiss, and who was himself a demo
crat, was dismissed to mako way fur the An
cient of days. So completely is the old re
gime letumed upon us, that iho former in
cnnibents aro every where re-instated, cx-
cejit hero where apersonul difficulty has sep
arated tho Collector dejure, from his quon
dam Collector dc factv, and in a few other
places ulicro tho ancient dcpulics havo died
out or yielded their claims to a friend. A
few nioro changes will bring us back to things
as uioy wero in ISJ'J, with tho samo old set
of officials. Wo arc wo cant help being
sorry for sonio of our "democratic "friends.
It is hard, yet they may as well try to
dodgo lightning, as hopo lo seo Iho day when
their appointed rulers shall cease to scizo all
tho offices of profit, and turn round and tell
them to bo quiet. It is appointed unto them
thus, and who shall disputo tho fiat of " St.
Tammany " ? Who daro to oppose tho oth
er saints ol tho calendar t Then let them
submit in peace and not maku " night hid
eous witli their groans. Truo, they show
some alarming syti)itoms just now, but it is
110 go. It the storm looks loo black, a small
concession, a sou appointed boatman or such
likc,suttles tho matter, and " upon tho whole,
thu Colonel, is going to do about right."
Upon iho whole, we can only ask the pco
plo at largo to judge for themselves us to tho
benefits and the propriety of tho recent
changes. The whole matter is beforo them,
and upon tho case wo ask a decided verdict

4TII JULY AT MILTON.
The glorious fourth was celebraledat Mil
ion Willi the usual enthusiasm. Tho oration
of Iho Hon. GconcE P. Mausii was a mas
terpiece in its way. Invited without distinc
tion of parly, and iho wealher being favora
ble, more persons were in attendance than
could bo accommodated in the Congregation
al Church which was generously tendered by
tho society for tho occasion. Tho oration
occupied about one hour in iho delivery and
was listened to with nn attention character
istic 01 an intelligent audience, and dun m
Iho distinguished abilities of tho speaker.
:uier an appropriate exordium in which tha
orator paid duo reveronco to the universal
celebration of the day and urged tho propri
ety and necessity of the custom, ho procee
ded to contrast tho condition of Europe and
especially 01 England at the period of our
revolution nnd at the present day, with tho
condition of tho American States, holdino-
up to iho abhorrence of his hearers the cor
ruption and abominations engrafted by (ho
government of England upon the established
church, the landed aristocracy wallowing in
wealth and debauchery, appropriatingoxten
sivo tracts of land to the support of palridges
and rabbits, while multitudes of common la
borers tire starving for want of bread ; and
presenting to the admiration of his hearers
the humble minister of the gospel in Ameri
ca, depending for his support upon the vol
untary aid of a free, religious and enlighten
ed people governed by institutions and law
of their own making and advancing in pros
perity bexond any nation in ancient or mod
ern history. He then alluded in lerms of
decji reprobation lo tho commercial rapacity
of England, her war with China, the seizure
of ihe province of Scinde in the East Indies,
of the Sandwich Islands, and of the Oregon
Territory, and concluded with expressing his
conviction that a war with that country was
not only inevitable but near at hand, and tho
sooner wo wero prepared for it the better.
Wo hope to obtain a copy of this admira
