A St'HOOT, ciitr..
Wo take the ibllowing from the Chica
pi Journal. It was in connection with a
twtiee of a small volume "Louies last term
at St. MaryV," of which we spoke a few
days ago.
A school girl, we are inclined to think,
is a creature very imperfectly understood.
eaious iauiraitsis nave devoted years
to a study of the dispositions, habits, and
capabilities of little animals that arc sole1
two for a farthing, but the school-girl li?
formed no chapter in their systems of An
mated Nature. Mothers generally krw
little about her : fathers know less, 'd
teachers, least of all. There is a conned
notion, to be sure, that give a scho'-gir'
time ami plenty of brcad-and-butU'i and
she will become a woman, and peodc have
modestly contented themselves wi'i bclicv
iug it, and have turned their atention to
matters less certain and more niportant :
The world is full ofschools-or girls, but
wc have never found a dozen neii perfectly
agreed as to what is best fo school-girls,
or in fact, as to what schoolgirls arc for.
One man thinks them juv-mlc angels in
disguise, and associates will them the ideas
of music and dancing Another believes
they were born to be coks, and sets them
up as angels still die divinities of the
kitchen ! A third Us an idea that they
are destined to hi talking animals, and
Miggt'st:- French and 2rau7?'-rooins. A
fourth has no doubt that any mother's
daughter of tlcm all will become a clever
man u you wny give ner a cnaucu, aim
talks of a T0tc and an oration.
But whlc they arc all busy considering
what the shall do, they take no thought of
what ric may suffer. The small martyr
dom, without any crown, which she en
dure daily at the handa of teachers who
ioTj. ' they ever had any childhood, or
i:i ur had any childhood to be forgttcon ;
niiMjijiivlnuded, overtasked, undervalued;
entering the formidable presence in rccita-liun-rooius
with her heart in her mouth,
and leaving it with no heart anywhere ;
the ight curling of nether lips at her,
that wounds her like Indian arrows ; the
whispered ridicule of her poor dross or her
unfortunate nose ; all these things and a
thousand more, leave their image and su
perscription upon her heart and life, that
outlast all science and all 'accomplishment.-
' Boys can 'rough it :' they wear
loot and can kick, but girls must suffer
silently ; we wish wc could add, must 'suf
fer and be strong.'
The school-girl demands protection, not
from the wolf, but from the school-girl ;
from the bitter rivalry, the heartless vani
ty, the cruel pride of her own kind. Xo
one will misunderstand us unless he tries :
chool-girls are better ; we believe, than
schooi-boj-s ; give us Jane instead of John,
any time, at a venture, but then school
girls are capable they must all forgive us
for what we-are going to say arc capallc
of leing more hateful in little nameless
ways of their own, than almost airy other
creature Boys fight it out, and use bad
words from Fianders, but girls can wrap
up a deadly weapon in a smile, and turn a
syllable into a fish-hook, as no boy ever
dreamed of doing. School-girl friendships
are fervent enough, but then how brief
they are, while school-girl rivalry and jeal
ousy, persecution and suffering outlast the
bn vacation.
How much 0f School-girl life tho teach-
nevtr sees; how often is the sweetest
, ,"an to a fountain of Marah, by
tnoc 1101 influences that are never
named : how nf- n

VIOLA. A LOVE STORY.

was pretty ; warm tints and graceful con-
ours, and the windows framed very lovely
landscapes. Only iola, my old friend
iola, Bitting opposite me, was called
ugly, according to the world's judgment.
Coarse features, tawuy hair, milk-and-water
eyes, and a uoso that would have been
positively expressionless but for the deli
cacy of the nostril, that quivered at every
emotion. The red locks not ripples
grew down, down upon her forehead, leav
ing just room enough for three horizontal
furrows that care had clearly creased from
title fo side. There was but one redeem
ing feature the mouth was inexpressibly
sweet ; a firm, living sweet, indicative of
no negative, but a positive, vital goodness,
My friends say there is nothing within the
bounds ot our domain so void oi tuc im
press of Beauty's hand ; and they wished
to know why I have asked her to stop with
mc why 1 would enjoy having so homely
an object in my view.
"Butterflies ! her wiDgs are not so bril
liant as 3'ours, but she has a honey-bag of
weetness in her heart. 'Like loves like'
and I love her," I reply, laughing.
They call mc beautiful, and I am grate
ful. Perhaps if I possessed less to charm
the eye I might value it higher, and value
pess that beauty of the mind which, des
1 lite the theory that our ph-sical frames
a re mirrors of the inner, is not unfrcqucnt
y enshrined in a very ugly shell.
Viola was so ugly that when I looked at
her 1 expected nothing ; so I was continu
ally surprised and delighted by the crop
ping out, as it were, of beauty ; as whpi
one is traveling along a dreary waste, sud
denly to come round upon a verdant va'Ioy
nestled among the shactry, sentinel mis.
Then she had a voice of most nianclous
sweetness, of thrilling power, sr that
whether it soared in an exultant jratorio
or plead in plaintive "Gcthscuinic, the
tones lived long in me as a divin' message.
Sh read the poets that I loved oh 1 so as
to shame my previous untiestanding oi
them. She was a hater of cowardice, and
deceit, and tyranny, in cvoy form ; and
tell me, now, could she l ugly ? It is
impossible ! Our conventfmal laws must
be changed, and bring In into the enchan
ted ring. I must spc to Buskin about
it.
I said I was lookirg round my room. 1
was looking at her ; aud fearing that her
susceptible nature night read my thoughts,
I began :
"Viola, why dnt you write for a liv
ing ? You ha vf superb talents, apprecia
tion, imagination, power of construction,
fits of inspirafr'on ; and 1 believe that, by
all means, ycu should use your line talents
for writing.'
Tho girl raised her honest eyes from the
book she a reading, and her face settled
down, u7vn into its habitual look of wea
riness, -adness, and suffering.
Po ! there arc too many smaltercrs
alrca'V- I don't think I am needed, or
couK do any good in that way."
fiuietly she put away her book, put on
lie: bonnet and shawl, and went to her
f&ily toil the "drilo, drillcry, filem
rindem" of school-teaching. 1 said no
more, though JL knew the drudgery ot her
half-requited work ; how long she labored
to see but very little learned ; how this
inspector or that, knowing nothing about
the matter, but feeling in duty bound to
how that he did know.was forever suggest
ing that this or that should be bettered. 1
know that this or that patron was continu
allo complaining that his darling learned
too little or too slow ; I know, lor I had
traveled in that path, of the mental pros
tration which follows a day's duties done
in the school-room ; I know, what was
worstjhow it saps the energies and narrows
the mind ; 1 know, that the, too, saw it
results ; and how I pitied her ! I ran over
the time when wc were rollicking, gay
young girls together at school, and she the
most light-hearted, winsomo,bird-likc crea
ture ot all that happy band. She was the
favorite of Professor 11 , and he lavish
ed upon her so many tender attentions,
took such pride in cultivating and display
ing her splendid voice ; gave her books and
music and flowers, and interpreted them
them all to her young heart, that oh ! it
was the old, sad story again told she
loved him ; while every one saw it but he
who wou,d' nQt gcc ;t and lie wcnt aml
married another. It was a long tune be
fore the bird was glad and sang again.
And she never gave her heart to another.
When her friends importuned her to ac
cept one, when they told hor that she was
almost an "old maid," she had the frank
ness to confess that she loved Professor
B . and she could love no other.
Laughingly, now she says she is "married
to the school."
To-night Viola come in from school
with a flushed check and a brighter eye
than usual. I saw that her hand trembled
as she removod tier glove and passed on
into her room aud closed tho door. Some
thing had gone wrong; the old complaint
of parent who wished his dunce to be sup
plied with brains gratis ; or perhaps the
trustees had notified her that she might
leave. "It is a shame !" said both my
husband and I. Well, she should have a
home with us, and the favor would be all
on us. I bade Biddy to make an extra
cup of tea, and use all the rest of her skill
on some cream toast, and sat down to the
piano to fling off my indiguation, if possi
ble, by tea time. Presently Viola's hand
was upon my shoulder.
"Is my dear well to-night !" I said.with
out looking up.
"Very well, Carrie. "
What made her voice so calm and
sweet ? I looked up.
"Carrie, I am to marry Professor
B . He has been to see mc to-day.
You know his wife is dead years since, lie
says he loves me."
What a look of happiness ! The incarna
tion of rest from struggle and desolation
and agony such as the deserted orphan on
ly knows.
God, on earth, givcth His trustin
children rest.

AXTI-DISl'XIOX AT THE SOUTH
Ihcrc need bo small fear of secession on
the part of our Southern brethren in the
confcdcrccy.as long as men of influence at the
Sjuth ae in the way of tiking the stamp and
telling them such pungent truths as those
below.
'ihe following are extracts from a sncech
by the Hon-. Jonx M. Botts, in Lynchburg
Va., Oct. 18.
Have you the power to secedo ? If the
United States Government. numborin-
32,000,000 people, is clothed with the powc
that I think it is, and that Madison said it
was, and which you find during the admin
istration of Gen. Jackson it actually was,
think it would be a very difficult matter to
resist or oppose the United States. There
are 32,000,000 of inhabitants, includ
ing blacks and whites, and 1 suppose about
23,000,000 free whites m tho L nited States
Wo are in tho habit of hearing gentlemen,
on the Fourth of July, making mtnotic
epeeehe., declaring that the Government of
tho United State? is able and ready to copo
with the world m arms, it necessary ; and
yet has not the power to resist little South
Carolina.
When you talk aljout alt tho Southern
States combined competing with the Federal
Government, it is all moonshine and non
sense when you come to" put it into practical
operation.
I'OVEETV OF TIIE SOUTH.
Suppose you all go out, what do you car
ry? You carry nothing; but you leave
everything behind you. You leave the pub
lic treasury. There is not much of that
just now, however, under Mr. Buchanan's
administration; but it is coming in by de
grees. You leave the army, the navy, the
public lands, tho fortification, all the dock
yards, all the public property of every des
criptions, munitions ot war and all. And
what havo you got to fight with ?
Virginia could not furnish clothes Lr her
men. It has taken all our money to hang
John ISrowu and his confederates. What
do you propose to carry out with you ? noth
ing. And what will you fight upon?
Nothing. Alabama is in an actual state of
starvation. She had to call the Legislature
to provide the common necessaries ot lifo for
her people.
KINXLNU AWAY.
Jvow, if you would not run away from
your private estate, why attempt to per
suade rac to run from my public estate?
This is our government ; this is our Union,
our treasury, our army, our navy ; it all be
longs to us why persuade us to run away
and leave them behind, I say not only be
fore we are whipped, but before we aje
struck a blow ?
"What would you think of some rich old
farmer, who had u fine estate in copartner
ship with somebody el?e. Ho had made a
large crop of tobacco, had plenty of wheat
in his barn, and corn very abundant enough
of this world's goods, in fact, to enable him
to enjoy all that a luxurious appetite could
dcMre and ho wa suddenly to quit his es
tatc, his family, and his crops, aud the next
thing you heard of him he was down in
Texas, and somebody asked him, "What in- ;
duced you to run away and leave such a fine j
estate?'' and bis reply should be, "Oh! 1 I
had a partner who every morning came to
the fence and shook his list at me,and threat- j
enod to take my estate from me?" j

The Pittsburgh papers announce the de
cease in that place, Oct. 21st. of Hon. Wu.
F. IIaile, aged 09 years. At tho age of 20
years, Mr. llailo was an ensign in the U. S.
army, aud was afterwards promoted to a
captaincy. He served gallantly during the
war of 1813, being wounded severely in sev
eral different engagements, and receiving a
wound at Lundy's Lane, which nearly pruv-

tercd the professn a of the law, and in sub
sequent life he held a number of civil offices
of high responsibility under the State snd

THE SUFFERING IN KANSAS.
The starvation in Kansas has actually
commenced. The following estructs of re
cent letters from Gen, S. C. Pomeroy of At-
chinson, to Thaddeus llvatt and Itev. Daniel
Foster, show that thero is a fearful state of
destitution in the territory, requiring im
mediate relief in order to avert actual starv
ation :
'To-day (Oct. 10) a man came from
Grasshopper Falls for work ; said he had
left at home a wife and four children, with
only half a bushel of meal, and no means of
iettinir more. I let him havo a bushel of
meal, and he joyfully took this on his back
and started home, 26 miles. In a few days
100 teams will start out to hunt bullalo. I

Mettrs Etliton;
Another of thoio interesting
County shiro questions was brought beforo th
House this morning in the tbapo of ajbill tochang
the shiro of Orleans Co.. civins tho location of tho
now shiro into tho hand of a disinterested committee
to ho appointed bjr tho Governor, Lieut. Gov. and
Speaker of tho House, provided always that tho
location bo somevrhcro in Barton River vulloy
Tho select Committee to which tho Bill was re
ferred, havo their first session this evening.
Tho discussion of tho Bill establishing an Agri
cultural Bureau occupied tho cntiro rest of tho
forenoon, in rogard to which tho feeling rccins to
os wonuenuuy turned about lrom wlirt it was
only three mornings ago when tho IIouso voted
almost unanimously to dismiss it. This morning
every member but ono among tho half dozen cr
more who spoko upon the measure, woro in favor
ol it. Mr. Field of Nowfano was, I think, tho only
ono who opposed it, though thcro aro doubtless
others who will speak against and thcro is besides
vory strong feeling of opposition among many
of the tilent mombors. Tho uicasuro will havo to
make cocfciilerablo of a fight for its life yet.
Field's opposition seems to be based mainly upou
his own experience in what ho is pleased to cat
"fancy farming." in which ho booauio very en
thusiastic, going in for all tho improvements
"Durham bulls" "Bcrkshiro hogs" "Kohan pota
toes" .tc, sending even to Montreal for scions to
graft in his fruit treesjand wasso carried away, in
fact, that heactually onec found himself grafting
his trees Sunday morning ! by which system
of "scientific- fancy farming" in tho course of ten
years ho run entirely through his fortune of $3,-
000 and came out as pjor as "Job's turUcy," "so
much for my esperienco in fanjy farming, con
found it'.'' A propos of Mr. Field able, acute,
brilliant as he sometimes is, thero is still in my
own private opinion no member of tho House who
is at times so really a ht and nuhance,on account
of the way he will talk round, and throw dirt,
and mystify a subject which he is interested in not
having cleared up, than this same able "gcntlo
man from Ncwfanc" and none who does in this
war more to hinder thefprogress of legislation.
The Committee on the question of paying tho
people of Montpclicr what they expended toward
building the State House report in favor of doing
and a Bill appropriating the amount of $12,
20,70, to be divided among the 1C0 subscribers
(for I understand it was not the town, as a town,
which raised this money, but only theso certain
individuals m the tewn) in proportion as thoy
subscribed. Tho entire cost of tho structure from
first to lost, Montpelior contributions and all.wns
stated to be SUC,916,C3. The matter is mado the
special order for Wednesday next.
There seems to be quite a disposition to tinker
with the laws in regard to fences. A certain law
in regard to that matter approved Nor. 10
8oT, Is apparently a special object of animosity
in some quarters. So anxious aro its enemies to
mako sure work with it, that, not content with
on bill providing fur repeal, thejrbave to-Uay put
n another precisely identical with tbe onn Intro.
duced some ten days ago, for the romo purpose.
Nobody noticed it, and it was passed right along
to its second reading perhaps is by this time
printed 350 copies of a bill precisely identical in
every icspeet with the one already printed nnd
before the House at least a week ! Of course tlii-
last proceeding is a blundor; but it seems rather
queer that no ono not even tho mover of the first
bill fhould notice it.
Another series of Resolutions woro introduced
to-day by Mr. Xoyes of Turlington, making sim
ilar charges against the .Vr. Albant Bank, sis were
made yesterday against the Franklin Co. Bank.
One item was that " one person had been suffered
to take and use, for his own purposes, the sum of
$100,000! at ono time, without any other security
than such person's individual notes."
The important bill providing that schools bo
supported entirely on tho Grand List, which was
under discussion so long yesterday, was taken up
this afternoon and passed; ayes 94, noes "7.
Oftbo "Dog Bills" it may bo said "and still
thoy come." The last, introduced yostorday, pro
vides that dogs shall be licensed, numbered, regis
tered arid collared, and tho owner of any dog not
so "done to," shall, upon prosecution, forfeit tho
sum of five dollars for tho uso of the Town whero
said dog resides."
Several Committees havo been in session this
evening. The Committtc on the Orleans County
Shire, T understand, had a remarkably pleasant
meeting, it being somewhat preliminary, and the
feeling being general amoDg tho members from the
Coui'ty that they would fight, if fight they must,
with the greatest amicability and good feeling. I
only hope thoy may havo graco equal to their day.
The Bennington County Committee aro some
thing more than half through with tho hearing of
their case.
Another case of a good deal of interest is on tho
docket just now, in rogard to Stato's Attorney for
Washington Co. Mr. Henry, the regular republi
can nominee, was run off, or tried to be, by Mr.
Heatoc, also a Republican. Tho vote as returned
is very close Mr. Ilcaton having tomo 15 or 20
majority, and Mr. Henry contests hii election on
the ground that tho votes of a certain town (More
town) ought not to bo counted, on account of como
informality in the Meeting of tho Freemen of that
Town. My impression is that Mr. Hcaton will
hold tho office.
Tho indefatigable Motley of Ferdinand is still
at his post, battling manly for tho rights of his
immense contitucncy, consisting, as is clearly
proved, of himself and some other " individual."
Tho Committeo aro expected to report on his caso
to-morrow. I shall hardly venture an opinion on
a caso of such immense importance. G.

Respected Free Prtts:
Tho programme was op
ened in the Houso this moniing by a Resolution:
That when this Houso adjourn to-morrow after
noon, it bo until four o'clock, Monday afternoon.
So we are in for another recess. Of ooarss noth
ing will be dono until after election Tuestay
Few will members will return until Wednesday,
and thus, at least, four days in the heat of the
session just as the wheels were getting to roll
with some degro of brisknoss are lost. But the
"wisdom and virtue" so decrees, and so it must
be.
One would almost think from tho way the bills
come in the first hour this raoraiog, that the ses
sion was hardly begun. At least a dozen of one
kind and another were introduced to say nothing
of petitions,resDlution3 and remonstrances, among
which last were sundry "against making Arlington
the Shiro toTn of Bennington Co." I think that last
clause fairly deserves the quotation marks by thU
time. The whole number of remonstrances on
that subject, so far, it 41 (how many remonstrants
there are I cannot tell.) The emphasis upon the
"so far," is not without propriety, as "the gentle
man from Manchester," from whom this inter
minable stream of remoaUraaces havo nearly all
come, looks hale and hearty as ever, and for all
that appears, is providod yet with almost any
quantity of the samo kind of ammunition. It w
thought some time ago, that his resources must
fail soon, but tho supply rccmed to-day fresh and
full ai over.
Tho fight in tho House thi3 forenoon upon tho
question of annexing Concord to Caledonia Co.,
was a gallant one, and a good deal of a triumph
for tho opponents of the measuro.and particularly
lor tne member from Guildhall, who was mado
their Ajax in tho strife. The Committee, you will
remember, after long and repeated hearings, re
por.cd (I think unanimously) in favor of anncxa
tion. Now it is woll understood, I suppose, that
tho report of a Committee goes far tosettlo the fato
of any measuro they may havo had under consid
oration. They aro supposed to have investigated
the matter thoroughly, and as a general rule
their opinion has justly a very groat influanoe
upon tho vote when the question como3 beforo tho
Houso. , In view of tho fact, wo appreoiato some
thing of tho showing they must havo mado in or
dor to defeat tho bill and especially by a voto of
ICQtolC! Mr. Dale, of Guildhall, did himself
great crolit for tho directness, calmness, nnd effi
ciency with which ho prcsontcd his case.
Ihe Bill for publishing tho State Geologist's
Report, was tho first thing of interest in tho after
noon, and alter much talk generally iu favor,
and amendments enough to kill any ordinary bill,
it was ordered to a third reading, by a not vory
decided vote.
Tho Bill provides for tho publication of a thou
sand copies tho work to bo of about 500 pagoa
quarto, and this thousand to oost St,500, or $1,50
por copy. Tho second thousand, if over needed,
will cost $2,25 per copy. Theso thousand copies
nro to bo disposed of as follows : To caoh organi
zed town in tho Statc.ono copy. To Edward Hitch
cock, A. D. Hagar tho Congressional Library,
Smithsonian Institute.and Vermont Historical So
ciety, each sis copies; to tho University of Ver
mont, Middlebury Colloge, Norwich University,
New Hampton Institute, at Fairfax, Newbury
Female Collegiato Institute, oach State Library
n tho Union, and tho Library of tho Canadian
Government, each two copies. To each incorpor
ated Academy in this State, ono oopy. The re
mainder to bo placed in tho Sttte Library, to bo
used in making exchanges, and in meeting the
provisions of tho second section of tho act, which
provides that any citizen of the State who, prior
to April 1st, 1SC1, shall pay into the Treasury of
tho State, $2,25, shall be entitled to one copy of
the Report. Tho portions in brackets above, aro
the amendments to tbe original bill.
Tho Bill to license, rogister, and collar dogs.was
reported favorably by the Committee, and after a
very "serious" discussion, was laid over for next
Wednesday.
The Committee reported on the Resolution in
rogard to Allen's Tableaux (theatre) Company,
and recommended the reading, for the information
of tho members, certain sections of chap. 1 10
of tho Compiled Statutes, which are evidently right
to the point.
CouriLRD Statutes. Chap. 110, Sec. 15 If

THE AG. 'liC UTjTUR AT BU.SEAU
We copy from Walton's Journal, reports
of two of tbe speeches in favor of this meas
ure, one in each House :
KQMBKS OF SrVATOSt WOODBRIIXJE.
In Senate Oct. 31, on till prodding for an
Agricultural Bureau.
r Woodbridge said this wj? a bill some
what tt.oel in its character, and one which aijbt
nuttcriaUS ffeet interests of the Suto. When
first presented it did not strike him favorably ,but
upon exanuauLtuu i uuu como w tuu conviction
that tbe bill should puss. He believed it was the
duty of the legislature to legislate for the mate
rial as well as for the intellectual and moral wants
of the State. The board of education and the
school law have iacrcaacithe intoret in a thor
ough and universal education, and yet when that
bill was passed , th what argument wcra wo
met?
We wero told to let tno people alone, ine ta
telligencj of Vermont, it was said, and interest in
the education of its children, will seenre a ccu
mou school system which will bean honor to our
State. Cm' bn 'said its opponents. "la ft to
be suppujed that the people of Vermont are so re
gardless of their own interests, that they will not
take care of their common sch.ds '" What has
been the result ? This school law is yet in its in
fancy, and yet there is awakened an inU-rcst ia
common schools, thero is an improvement and an
advance in the standard of education; an interest
manifested both by parents and children, that sur
patses everything that was expected. For this
bill, too, wo aro asked coi bono? Does tho farm
er of Vermont demand tbe protection of the legis
lature? Xo, but if ho docs not need it, he shall
havo it. Is that any reason why wo shoaid not
ologislato to increase our material resources? That
we aro an agricultural state, is our only and dis
tinguishing interost. It is an interest upon which
the welfare of tho State depends. But we are
asked, what good will it do ! Take for example
tho rotation of crops. This involves what ? First
tho naturo of tho soil, second, tho character of tho
products, and third, tho elements that a given
rop requires from tho earth. What, then, shall
wo do to secure the greatest products that at the
samo timo protect our soil from being exhausted ?
This is a philosophical question, and its solution
depends upon the publication of philosophical
principles, and is only to be determined by long
and accurate observations. Again, in breeding
stock. Wc must understand what animal is adap
ted to a particular locality. VTe must look at tho
endurance, speed, muscles uf tho animal, .tc, and
all theso depend upon a physiological law, and
we can only determico what is best by appli
cation of physio:ogical principles. And so in ev
ery department of agriculture ' Can it be said
that the agriculturalists of Vermont understand
full well tho tcience to be applied to agriculture ?
Can it oven be said that they even apply what
science thoy do posso.s to the cultivation of their
lands? And yet it is no impeachment of tho in
telligence ot tho farmer. We would pass this bill
to cnablo tho farmer to apply tho necessary and
kno.vn principles oi icienca to agriculture.
Ho did not agree with an honorable Senator that
this would check tho decrcato of our population.
Emigration is in tho blood of our New England
people. Tho Yankoo may bo found wherever hu
man foot has trod. It is well, too, that our people
thus go out, and they will go out until, from New
England to tho Rocky Mountains, thcro shall be
an industrious, energetic people, all improving the
lanJ. It shows New England to ba tha great
school-honso of tho nation! Kut while our popu
lation is diminishing our national wealth is in
creasing, and it ii to increase this slill moro that
he would favor the passage of the bill.
He was net one ot tho3a who desired to be stingy
ia expending the mosey of the State. If there was
any thing which the true man pays with pleasure,
it is a tax for tho benefit of his fellow man. But
to this it cannot bo objected that it is an expense.
The enly expense will be for tho Secretary of the
Board and this will bo a trifle. But were it more,
it would bo no objection. I'or every dollar it
would take out of the State Treasury, it would put
hundreds into the pockets of tho people.
This Board would collect information, statistics,
which may hereafter bo printed in relation to tho
most profitable way of bringing the soil up to
where it was before it was weakened by excessive
cultivation.
Away with the cry that the fjrmen need no
protection! They do cot need it; but is it not best
for them to havo it? TLe farmers hivo no such
notion. They aro thankful for whatever informa
tion they may get, and though the measure.may
cost something, it wiilreturato ns a hundred fold.
EziiAKKs or Mh. Woodbcsv, of Spring
field, in tne House, Oct. 31st.
Mr. Woodbury, of Sprinfield, said it seemed
proper that he, as ono of tho committeo who re
ported tho bill, should present what appeared to
them as its merits. Will itpay? was tho primary
consideration. That is what wo want to kaow in
Vermont. Now this mctsare calls for tho appoiat-
ment of some six men, and of a Secretary, with a
lecturer, whose services shall be procured for a
sum net exceeding S1.500. The cstimato was not
orer $1,204 eall it $1,500. Ho had made a
uisthemitical calculation. There aro in tho b'tate
o.SOO.OOO acres of land. N'oir, distributing this
into parcels of 150 acres each, the proportionate
ins on ean parcel ior tne maintenance wjs lest than
four cents; Is thin a mm wnuld jr fer a drink
of brandy, or for a whiff at a Havana cigar. Such,
then, is tho tax bug-a-boo that killed this bill.
Why is flour imported in this Stnto ? Why is
corn imported? Look at tbe Condition of our
farms ; many of them will not pay the cost of cul
tivation. Aro tho farais jioor, or is there no appli
cation of rclenoc to insure large crops ? The land
is worn out. Tho skinning process Lad b:rt prac
ticed where the science ef farming was nut knuwn.
Tho results were obvious :wenty yean agu. In a
specific eise named, the principles of genuine ag
ricultural science were applied and tbe thinned,
run-out farm made productive.
He referred to his own experience to illustrate
the advantages that would accrue from the pasatgc
of the bill. Oncu he had been engaged in raising
stock but determined to engage in sheep-raising.
He purchased a ftock with nmoh peine in wlectioa
of fine animals. Another former iu Lis a-uuaiat-
ance purchased at the uiuo time, but conceded
tnat his own llvcK wv mc letter or (he two. He
fed them witU ore o. rir, but thi-y did not do i
aa well he Lv-i.ctt J, did dot turn out zs well as
those of Lis neighbor. On inquiry ho found that
hij owuLad b-.en tod higher than tbe other?. He
could not s'dve tho ;roelem, till hft Ttsitatt the
stables of the other, ami found a radioui difference
in the racks of hU acquaintance, from which the
fhei p fi-l : and he assnred his frieed that ho
should na tiiiuk to do anything with sheep wi th
en t that iostiivanee. X-w, if he were to raise
sheep he v:nuM go to an experienced and skilful
friend and k- n tia whole method. To make this
interchange ot u-eful knowledge was the aim ef
the conteuplikied bureau. It will be constantly
eudiug its circuUrc all ortr tfao State. He believ
ed that tl.. re was a general feeling among the
farmers in f.u..r ol' the bill ; a conviction that it
was ncusk l, ..ad taa' it would prove serviceable
totlxiii. It it bo debated now, it is their inten
tion to h.!d meetings in every town, in every
school distict, anl pour in petkioos to the legisla
ture till it sliouli be convinced that the formers
were in earutct for this mcasjre.
mrOKTANT SFEUCII OF
COUXT CAVOL'R.
Ti'sux, Oct. 12. The discussion on the
project ol law on the annexations was con
tinued to-day.
Count favour acknowledged that the dis
cussion uf that law had brjttght the differ
ent parties into closer union, lie srtid :
"There is a great diffidence betwe.'it past
annexations and those now under considera
tion. Immediately after the conclusion of
the treaty el Villairunea, annexations could
not bo precipittt-.d. A Congress was al
spoken of, at which wo were to take pan.
As regards the annexation of Southern 1 taly,
tbe same danger no longer oxists. Your vote
is demandod 1.1 ord tr that yuu may give to
the inhabitants uf those provinces a proof
that tho steps Uken by tho Government
have met with your approval.
As regards the disunion which baa ansen
between tho Government and Garibaldi, the
fault has not been ours. Public opinion
leaves no doubt ii that point. Tho Minis
try, therefore, decided on presenting them
selves before the Parliament, in order that it
might judge their policy. This is the great
est homage tfiat can bo paid to any man.
The Crown, alter mature consideration, re
fused to accept the offer made by us to tender
our resignation, being ot opinion that Gov
ernment would thereby be too much weak
ened at home and abroad.
it only remained to us, there! r to ad
dress ourselves to you, imt that yon might
judge liaribaldt, who is not aul ject to yuur
examination, but ourselves, ucr wuoiu yuu
havo power. Should you support us. we
fthall go to meet Uannitdi, stud present to
him tho order ct the day proposed by your
committee, which yon will approve, "and
which wc accept with all our hearts. Wo
shall eff r him our hand, and invito him to
onion in the name of the Italian Parliament.
The cession of Italian territory as an in
demnity, has again been spoken of. To this
report 1 give a loruial d' nul- ard add, that
when annexation shall have been ucc ni
plishcd, any cession of territory will become
impossible. Nobody will be able to ask such
a cession from a country with a popaiatiun
of 24,C0O,WO.
An attack against Itome.ind Venice has
also been spoken of. Wc desire that tho
eternal city should become tho capital of
Italy ; but as regards the means to that end,
we shall be better able to say in what con
dition we shall bo six month" hence.
The revolution in Rome will be accom
plished by the conviction at liberty is ta
votablo to religion.
Respecting Veuetia, Europe does not wioh
that she should make war upon Austria.
We mnst take into consideration tho opinion
of the great Towers. We must bring about
a change in this opinion. Europe believes
us incapable of delivering Venecia alone.
Let us snow onrselves united, and that
opinion will change. It is untrue that the
A enctians arc peacefully submitting to their
destiny.
Austria has flattered them in' vain. Public
opinion will change not enly in France and
England, but Germany also, which i-. be
coming liberal, will be in our laror.'' -
Count Caruur concluded by making an
appeal fureoucord.
The order of the d.ty of the Committee,
rendering homage to Garibaldi, and tinani
mously expressing their approval ot the pro
ject ot law on the annexations, was theu pnt
to the vote by ballot.
Tho result was 21H) in favor and 6 against
the project.
A Love Exterikmz wna a .Mural. The
announcement of the lata mnrriage of Sena
tor Lafayette S. Foster, of Connecticut, rej
calls to one ef our chi temporaries the follow
ing incident in hi? private history .
During tiio period of his law study ia
the soutn-eastern p rtion of the State, he
became acquainted with a young lady of pre
poesessing appearance and moro than ordina
ry aeeomplishmontf, a daughter oi parents of
the highot respectability, and moving in
the mutt fashionable circles of tho vicinity.
With her he entered one of his earliest pleas
and commenced his first suit. That he was
successful is evident from the fact that,
shortly after his admission to the bar, and
havin" obtained an honorable position and
business connection, arrangements for con
summating tbe marriage were made, and all
went un harmoniously until a short time be
fore the appointed day. During his visit
one evening, he remarked that ho believed all
necessary arrangements for the wedding were
made, and tho route for their bridal tour
decided, llo added: "Un our return we shall
bo obliged to devoto a fahort time to our
friends here, after which, if you please, we
will pay a visit to my old father and mothtr,
and spend a few days with thorn." Xow,
Lafayette was always a good boy, and was
taught to honor his father and mother,
which carlv became to him a pleasure ai well
as a duty. " He bad recetv-d from them words
of love and encouragement, which had done
for him, without money (for they wcro poor) ,
what money nevei could have done, and
through all bis privations and itrugglea to
obtain an education and position in life, he
hml been stimulated and supported by the
thought of tha pleasure his success would
wive Them, and he looked forward to the day
when, with his c'uwen one, ho ehould meet
them beneath their humble roof, and receiva
again their blessing, as to ba one of the
happiest he should ever experience.
For a few moments tho lady kept silence.
Sho then said : " Mr. Foster, you know I
have be9n educated with different ideas from
yours, and havo always associated with peo
ple whtse manners and style of liviDg ere
different from those of your parents, and tho'
I shall make no objection to your proposed
visit, I wish you to understand that I shall
not expect to repeat it soon or often, and that
I shall not desiro to associate with people of
that class."
Nothing could have surprised him more
than to hear those words from her lips. For a
few minutes ho walked tho room, seemingly
half-bewildcrcdr Then,-taking I113 hat in
hj hand ho turned, and with words moro
e mphatic than refined, said : " Madam, lam
glad I have found you out in time. You
may go to the devil."
The last wo hoard of th lady, sho was still
living, an ancient maidtn, having sten this
son uf jrents she eonderod beneath Iwr
notice, filling with lienor tho highest publie
offices to which his fcllow-eittxtna coutd pro
mote him."
