The weather, which we stated in our
last as warm and wet, has undergone a
material change. Abotut twelve o'clock
on Sunday, the clouds broke away, and
the sun, looked upon us in all its wonted
splendor, and set at eveningin a cloudless
sky. On Monday the air having become
much colder, the sky was again overcast
with clouds, and presented every appear
ance of an approaching snow storn. It
continued thus until Tutesday evening,
whcn itcommenced railing, which turned
to sleet, and yesterday moruing, the earth
exhibited a coat of ice, which still remains
up to the time we write.

The Main Boutndarq.-This question,
which has for a long time been a subject
of controversy, has assumed a ihreatening
aspect, and there is rearon to suppose.
that unless some satisfactory arrange
nients are soon made, that a var may he
expected hetween the United States and
England. After a space of some forty
years, of occasional negotiation, one war,
three or four treaties, one or two inefrect

tration by a thiird power, the dispute re
mains as far fron nos arIjortnent-icvere.
nad sermas likely, to be the cause of pres
en ditliculties, and not improbably of a
war between the two countries.
The British Pres-es, generally, abound
in articles of the most flagrant abise of
our country. In them, we are told that
the citizens of the U. S. cannot perpetuate
too base, too illegal, too barbaronst, or too
atrocious an act, upon tle rights and iude
pentience of foreign nations, without be
ing approved of by the Federal Govern.
ment. They d'eclare it a gient misfortune
to lie in anywise connected with so selfish
and unprincipled a Governmvent. The
people of the United Stares are con
demned "en masse," as guilty ora insoeot
manners, ignorant pretensions, hollow
friendships. and grasping policy.
Now we would ask, in all sincerity, if
a peole thus vilified and outraged day
after day, and year lafter year, can rea
sonalihy be expected to cherish good will
towards their defarmers, or whether it is
possible for sentintents of regard and friend
ship, to the generated by such evidences
as English writers put forth towards us,
in the natne of all their countrymen.
In the mattefor this disputed territory,
the one sided propensities of our antago
nists in the controversy, tre splendidly ex
hibited. Not a writer otn the English side
has been willing to adutit, or eveu to hint
at, the possibility of our people and Gov

With regard to the henlih aid moralsof
ottersville, we deem it untiecessary to
Ivert, the location of the place bcing so
-ell kmi Wn. It is situated oi a high, dry
nd andy ridge, and remote frmi any lo
il causes or disease; its waters are con
:cquently pure and salubrious.. And the
morals of the village are unexceptionable;
eing far removed from those haunts of
issipaion and vice, so common in modera
imes, in almost all our villages., anmd which
re so apt to prey upon the norals of ill.
sperienced and ungarded youth. and
-hich leads so many into vicious habits,
mat proves their inevitable ruin. Fron
me numerous physical ard moral a-dvanin
es which our village possesses, we trust
ur school will receive a liberal patroiage.
Good boarding can ie hiad il the place,
1t fom $8 00 tIm $10 00 per month.
