For the Green Mountain Freeman.;

Arouse ! Arouse ! for Liberty,
Ye men of freedom now;
And let us have a thrilling shout,
Although they say we're few.
0 let us wake to Freedom's Bause,
And stuiul among the brave,
That we may fjive a just rebuke
To all who hate the slave.
Do you profess to be n man!
And can you be so base
As not to weep for other's woes
Because they'er not your race:
Oh hear the victim as he calls
Upon you foi relief,
And prays you in u humble tone
To hear his tide of grief.
But nay: I need not strive to paint
His sutPrings and his tears;
Alas! 'twould far surpass my power
To picture forth his fears.
Lift up your heads, sad Afric's race,
For you shall yet be free:
Then every mount and every dell
Shall ring with Liberty !
Cut ah! say you the time is near
And naught can it prolong,
When Texas shall to us be joined,
And make our fetters strong.
0 God forbid! from heaven above,
In thundors wilt thou speak,
And swear by thy almighty power
Texas from us to keep.
Voters, lay to your helping hand,
Your shoulder to the wheel,
And let us see if we can make
The tyrant's power yield.

with several bushels of the same kind the next day.
The boy returned and informed his father what he
had seen, but was unnoticed by the womao. When
the evening enme the old gentleman put on his over
coat and retired to the orchard. At a somewhat
advanced hour of the night, the suspected woman
came with her boy and filled several bags with ap
ples, when the old gentleman rose from .his seat
beside the wall and very pleasantly offered to as
sist her in putting them into the wagon. 'O, no!'
the woman exclaimed, 'I would not take them for
the world,' and began to beg for pardon. 'Ceriain
tainly you shall have them" said the venerable
man, 'you shall not be put to all this trouble, and
expose your life to this midnight air for nothing.
So laying the apples into the wagon, he led the
horse into the road, politely assisted her into the
carriage, saying, 'will put up the bars, but I want

" The First Of fence.
In the cheerful dining room of my bachelor
iricnii Stevenson, a select party was assembled to
celebrate his birthday. A very animated discus
sion had been carried on for some time, as to
whether the first deviation from integrity should be
treated with severity or leniency. Various were
the opinions, and numerous the arguments bro't
lol'wunl to support them. J. lie majority appeared
to lean to the side of 'crush all offences in the bud,'
when a warm-hearted old gentleman exclaimed,
'Depend upon it, more young people are lost to
society from a first offence being treated with inju
dicious severity, than from the contrary extreme.
Not that I would pass over the slightest deviation
from integrity, either in word or deed; that would
certainly be mistaken kindness; but on the other
hand, neither would I push with severity an of
fence committed, perhaps, under the influence of
temptation temptation, too, that we ourselves
may have thoughtlessly placed in the way, in such
a manner as to iciidei irresistible. For instance,
a lady hires a servant; the girl has hitherto borne
a good character, but it is her first place; her hon
esty has never yet been put to the test. Her mis
tress, without thinking of the continual temptation
to which she is exposing a fellow creature, is in
the habit of leaving small sums of money, gener
ally copper, lying about in her sitting room. Af

not always found exactly as she left them. Suspi

money carefully at night, nn'l the next morning

but the girl, her guilt is evident. Well, what
does her mistress do? Why, she turns the girl

had I the pleasure of reflecting that I had, in all

'There is, I fear, too much truth in what you
say,' remarked our benevolent host, who had hith
erto taken no part in the conversation; 'and it re
minds n:e of a circumstance that occurred in the
earlier part of my life, which, as it may serve to
illustrate the subject you have been discussing, 1

attention; for it was a well known fact, that no

, 'In the outset of my business career,' said he, 'I
took into my employment a young man to fill the
situation of under clerk; and, according to a rule
I had laid down, whenever a stranger entered my
service, his duties were of a nature to involve as
little responsibility as possible, until sufficient time
had been given to form a correct estimate of his
character. This young mini, whom I shall call
Smith, was of respectable family. He had lost his
father, a,ud had a mother and sisters in some mea
sure dependant on him. After he had been in my
employment u short time, it happened that my con
fidential clerk, whose duty it was to receive the
money from the bunk for the payment of wages,
being prevented by un unforeseen circumstance
from attending at the proper time, sent the sum
required, by Smith. My confidence was so great
in my head clerk, w ho had been long known to mo,
that I was not in. the habit of regularly counting
the money when brought to me; but as, on this
occasion, it had passed through other hands, tho't
it was right to do so. Therefore calling Smith back
as he-yas leaving my counting house, 1 desired
him t6,wait a few Jiuiiutes, and proceeded to as

my surprise and concern on finding that there was

But t hist money is incorrect, and it is the first time
I have fcTfihd it so.' He changed countenance, and
..his eye fell before mine; but he answered with cow

ed still he was absent; and upon calling at his
house to inquire after him, I found the family in
great distress on his account. His complaint had
proved typhus fevtjf1 of a malignant kind. From
almost the commencement of his attack, he had,
as his wife (for he hail been some time married)
informed me, lain in a state, of total unconscious
ness, from which he hail aroused only to the rav
ings of deleriuui, and that the physician gave little
hope of his recovery. For some days he continu
ed in the same state; at length a message was
brought me, saying that Mr. Smith wished to sue

I would come ns soon as possible, for she feared
her husband was dying. I immediately obeyed
On entering his chamber, 1 found the whole fam
ily assembled to take farewell of him they so ten
derly loved. As soon ns he perceived me, he mo
tioned for me to approach near him, and taking
my hand in both of his, he turned towards nic his
dying countenance, full of gratitude and affection,
and said, 'My dear muster, my best earthly friend,
I have sent for you that I may give you the thanks
and blessings of a dying man for all your goodness
to me. To your generosity and mercy I owe it
that I have lived useful and respected, that I die
lamented and liapy. lo you 1 owe it that 1 leave
my children a name unsullied by crime, that in af
ter years the blush'of shame shall never tinge their
checks at the memory of their father.
"0 God !" he continued, 'Thou who hast said,
'blessed are the merciful,' bless him. According
to the measure be has meted unto others, do thou
mete unto him.' Then turning to his family he
said, 'My beloved wife and children, I entrust you
without fear, to tho care of that heavenly parent
who has said, 'Leave thy fatherless children to me
and I will preserve them alive, and let thy widows
trust in me. And you, my dear master, will I know
be to tlioin as you have been to mc, guidcirotect-
or, and fneud.' 'Ihat' continued the kind oldj
man, looking around upon us with glistening eyes,
though mixed with sorrow, was one of the happi
est moment of my life. As I stood by the bedside
of the dying man, and looking around upon his
children growing up virtuous, intelligent, and up
right, respecting and honoring, as much as they
loved their father; when I saw his wife, though
overcome with grief for the loss of a tender and
beloved husband, yet sorrowing not as one without
hope, but even in that moment of agony deriving
comfort from the belief that she should meet him
again in that world where
"Adieus and farewells are a sound unknown;"
when I listened to this fervent expression of grat
itude, and saw him calmly awaiting the inevitable
stroke, trusting in the mercy of God, and at pence
with his fellow men, and when I thought of what
the reverse of all this might have been crime,
misery, a disgraceful and dishonored lif.-, perhaps
a shameful and violent death had yielded to the
first impulse of indignation, 1 felt, a happiness
which no words can express. We are told that
there is more joy amongst tho angels of God over
one sinner that rcpuntcth, than over ninety and
nine just persons who need no repentance. With
i ioy as wo might imagine theirs, did I reioice
over poor Smith, as I closed his eyes and heard
tho attendant minister in lervent tones as lie
exclaimed, "Blessed are the dead that die in the
Lord; yea, saith the spirit, lor they rest from their
labors, unci their works do follow them."
My friends, I am an old man. During a long
and eventful career in business, I have had inter

disposition, and with many degrees of talent, but
I have never found reason to swerve from the prin

Such was the story of our friend. And I believe
not one in that company but returned home more

to extend to nil who might fall into temptation

He thought there was no danger. I saw him a-

to spend a short lime in convivial pleasure. They
considered it only an innocent amusement. I met
him next late in the evening, in the street, unable
to roach home; 1 assisted him thither; he looked a-
hamed when we next met. I entreated him to
forsake his evil companions and the intoxicating-

FOR VICE PRESIDENT,
. " I rejoice, that the abolition of slavery throughout the
civilized world is no longer problematical; it seems to be
almost universally conceded that this stupendous fraud
upon a portion of the human race is fast drawing to a
close, and the great question with us is truly, what meas
ures aro best suited to accomplish this desirable end in
the United States.
" Political action is necessary to proiluco
mora! reformation in a nation : and that action with us
can only be effectually exercised through the ballot box.
And surely the ballot box can never be used for a more
nohle purpose, than to restore and secure to every man
Ids inalienable rights." Thomas Morris.
, I am not disposed to submit lo the diclation of slavehol
ding power, or to abridge the freedom of speech or of the
press, or the right of petition, as constitutionally secured
to the citizens of this country; and if the slaveholding
power, by attempting to do so, shall dig ils own era'e,
nnd inhume its own victims, it will not he the fault of the
free States. Morris' Letter to A. Campbell, 1837.

We find in an old paper the following good advice
to dairy maids: " In churning for butter always
have an open space for the air to have free access
to the cream. If you stop up the orifice as it is
customary lo prevent the cream splashing out, you
may churn hours and hours in vain! Butter is
prodced by the union of oxygen with tho cream
and more will be made, and quicker and of a finer
flavor, if you have your churn sufficiently open,
than if you have no aperture of proper size. One
experiment will convince you of this."

Wool. The history of the growth of wool is
very curious. Fifty years ago not a pound of line
wool was raised in the United States, in Great
Britain, or in'any other country except Spain in

nobility or by tho crown. -In 1794, asmail flock

country and Great Britain, Col. Humphreys suc

of Spain, though their exportation was prohibited
under the penalty of being sent to the gallovs for
In 1900, during the second invasion of Spain by
the French, some of the valuable Crown flocks
were sold to raise money. Our Consul at Lisbon,
Air. Jams, purchased fourteen hundred head; and
sent them to this country. Previously, however,
Mr. Livingston obtained a few sheep of tho Span
ish breed as a present, in 1792. A portion of the
pure unmixed merino blood from these flocks is to
be found in Vermont at this time. Such was the
origin of the immense flocks of fine wooled sheep
