VERMONT TELEGRAPH. 51 i V )! GENERAL INTELLIGENCE n - -; Imfohtamt Wecopy the following article in relation to Texas from the N. Y. Sunday Morning News. The infor mation it contains U of the utmost import ance to the whole country, and we are not aware that it has before been given to ihe public t.'- ' Tcxai. We rtatcrt in a recent para- rsnh that the aflrent despatched bv the 'resident of the United States to Texas, with instructions to procure information in respect to the political and military condition of the. country, had returned, and made, a report conforming out and out, with the well-known wishes and news of ine 1 resiaeni on w . " . add. that we hare received additional in r.. mi thm iihtct. and are enabled wuuauvu wh - j- ' to assure the public that the report is of the roost favorable character,' exhibiting Texas as capable of discharging the du ties and fulfilling the obligations of an in dependent power. . In ihe mean time Texas has elected a President and a now Congress with great unanimity and order; and the question be ing submitted to the people at the polls, whether they wished an annexation to the United States of North America, it was decided almost "unanimously in the affir mative. It is now, therefore, almost certain that a great effort will be made at the ensuing session of Congress to procure tht ac knowledgement of the independence of Texas' by our government; to establish with it diplomatic nnd commercial rela tions, and to settle the preliminaries for its admission into the Federal Union. The state of parties in this country will greatly facilitate this measure. The Van LJurcn party, as has been proved, will not venture, by placing itself in opposition to the annexation, to disoblige its southern and western friends; and the southern anti Van Buren party will be forward and ear nest in promoting a policy which will so much strengthen the interestsof the south ern slriveholdin states. The mercantile nnl manufacturing interests of the north will also bq dedidedly favorable to the an nexation; for the reason that it will give additional and profua.ble employment for their capital and industry. Nothing grows at the South,, under the present system, that docs not grow for the benefit of the northern merchants, manufacturers and navigators. Texas, with its fertile fields. and inaptitude for any but merely ari- culturaf purposes, will be to them better than amine of cold. Her slaves are to toil, not for their masters, nor for them solves, but for the northern capitalists. If any one doubts this, let him look both at the ante and past revolutionary history j of the southern states. Let him, for in stance, tako the tidewater country of Vir ginia, for a century previous to the revo lution, productive of tobacco, then the richest export of tho colonies to the mother country. Where can you find the results of her fertility and her labor, during that long period of time? Not in any public or private improvements, or in any tangi ble or permanent capital within her own limks; but in the bloated wealth, and mu nificence, and luxury. nnJ improvements ofth mercantile and manufacturing cities r cA .! amiUind. bv which her trd- ic monopolized. The trade was, twine revolution, transferred to the north em and eastern states, and with the same results. The same will be the history ol Texas, whatever nation may enjoy her trade. With br it will be only a choice between England and the United States, in arrantinj? the advantages of her trad, and she very naturally prefers to give itto the nation which has the more sympathy with and affinity for her. The neoDle of the southern slave states have also a strong motive for an alii; n:e with Texas, independently ol any political considerations. Texas is the greatest cot ton region in the world. It is not only more fertile of cotton than the southern states, but it Droduces a better article. There is land enough in Texas to enable it to supply the world witn tms great sta pie, to the exclusion of the southern states from the market, but the labor is wanting. None but slave labor can be used in the culture of cotton. Now, if Texas becomes independent, she may supply herself with slave. from Cuba, and speedily enter into competition with our states in the produc tion of cotton, at once depreciating the value of our slaves, our cotton lands, and our cotton. The south would never, there fore, assent to the recognition of Texan in dependence, utvith, , the ..understanding thattae country shall bev annexed to the United States, and made subject to our Saws in respect to the Importation of slaves. The rice-of,1 cotton will then be main tained, .and trie valuation of slave labor enhanood;'-because the number. of slaves ean'onlx.be increased by the means of ineir natural increase, on wnaicver siae of the Sabine they may, ultimately fee con centrated. V '., L . - .There con be little doubt, therefof e';in-; terested as all parties and sections are in the measure, that-the independence of Texas will be speedily acknowledged by the United States, and that it wilU without , any ufcmecessary delay, be admitted, jo to tn teuerai union.

The annual re port of the Secretary of the Treasury is a much longer document than the Presi dent's Message, occupying over eight col umns, in small type, of the official Gazette at Washington." The Intelligencer of Thursday, gives the following abstract of its contents : Receipts and expenditures for 1836. The balance in the Treasury on the 1st of Jaunary last was $26,749,803. The re ceipts for 1836 are estimated at $47,691, 898, of which the receigts from Customs for the first three quarters have been 817,523,151, and the receipts from Lands $20,048,026. The expenditures for 1836 are ascertained and estimated at $3 1,433, 032, of which the payment for the milita ry service, (including fortifications) during the three first quarters, have amounted to 813,010,061. Deducting the expenditures of the year, ascertained and probable, from the receipts, the balance which will be in the Treasury on the 1st of January, 1837, is estimated at $43,004,669, and deducting the ' una vailable funds' of $l,0,80,0p0 leaving 'the available balance $41,925,669. This does not include the balance to the ' credit of the Post-Office Department at the end of the yeaT, estimated at $3 13,920 Revenue and expenditures for 1837.- The receipts aML .etraated.asrfo.lio,ws i Customs, $16,500,000; Lands, $5,600, 000 Bank Stock and Miscellaneous, $2,500,000. The expenditures (including $1,000,000 for usual excess of appropria tions beyond estimates) are estimated at $26,755,831. Imports and exports. The Imports du ring the year ending 30th September, 1836, are ascertained and estimated at $137,540,000, showing an increase com pared with the preceding year, of $23, 645,238. The exports during the same period are ascertained and estimated at $121,780,000 of which $101,103,000 were domestic products, and the residue foreign, exhibiting an aggregate increase, compared with the preceding year, of $33, 423, and an amount exceeding the average of the last three years by $3,820,130. The Surplus Revenue. The recom mendations of the last Annual Report are renewed, and reductions suggested of du ties on raw materials of foreign origin used in some of our important manufac tures, and next on articles of comfort and necessity for the people generally. A prohibition of the sale of the public do main to any but actual settlers is also men tioned as another mode of curtailing the revenue. The Public Money. An account is given of the measures adopted in pursu ance of the act of June 23d, 1836, to regu- ate the deposites of the public money, and some recommendations are made of pro spective provisions on the subject, such as authority to discontinue as deposit banks, when no longer necessary, those selected under the late act, tc. The Mint and the Currency "The coinage of the Mint, from the 1st o( Janu ary to the 1st of November, 1836, has been of gold, 3,019,446, and of silver. $2,877,000. The establishment of gold coin ot one dollar is asrain urged uoon Congress. The quantity of gold coin now in the country is estimated at 915,000,000. The Secretary of the Treasury calculates the whole specie in the country in Octo ber, 1833, at thirty millions of dollars, and the whole specie now m the country at seventy three millions. Various specula tions on the- subiect occunv a number of pases in this part of the report. Miscellaneous. The renort concludes with several sujrtrestions of a miscellane ous character, among which the renewed recommendation of the adoption of meas uses for regulating steamboat navigation must meet with very general approbation from all those who have as much horror as we have of those appalling catastrophes which class themselves under the head of Steamboat disasters!' Prison discipline society. The Eleventh Annual Report of the managers of this Society, made last May is just pub lished. It embodies much, intoimation together with many judicious comments, upon Asylums for Lunatics, Penitentiaries and State prisons, Causes of Crime, means of Reformation, County Prisons, Houses of Refuge and Imprisonment for Debt Here are facts and demonstrations pre- sented bv the Indefatigable Secretary of the Society, for the humane philosopher to work upon, in aid of the progressive advancement of the Social State. Much has been learned respecting the treatment of lunatics; and much has been attained by substituting for that cruel se venty which aggravates madness or brings on idiocy, a gentle influence which allays violence, gives scope to reason or fancy. and lets the subject pride bimsell in its use, even while it cannot be fruided in me right course. The number of lunatics in tne Unitea Statesv compared -with the ..population, is greater thaa , we had supposed: So far as examination has been made, says me Report..,it exceeds rather than lalls short of L1O.1QD0 souls.! .1 . .

Mr.L g ;ett, late ! editor of the Evening Post, having sold ' "Ul J"s interest in that paper, nas aevotea j himself to the publication of a weekly pa- j per, called The Plaindealer. It U in the j double 8vo form, each number containing 16 very large pages. Price $5 per an num. Those who are acuuaintcd with Mr. T . ' w - J be disappointed in their expectation of finding all his articles written in the clear- est, and purest Saxon English, conveying to every reader the full and exact ideas he wishes to communicate. His principles' nr. on most points are of the cast commonly j " "-I. aenominated ultra. In politics, he prom ises in his prospectus to be democratic, not only to the extent of the political max im, that the majority have a right to govern," but to the extent of the moral maxim, that " it is the duty of the major ity so to govern as to preserve involate the equal rights of all." He is an "enemy to all restraints on the manv for the henefit of the few ;" and considers " the people as the only proper source of government, and their equal protection its only proper end." At the same time he declares that his pa per "will never deserve to be considered a party paper, in the degrading sense iu which that phrase is commonly under stood. He 'goes against banks and chartered privileges, and is fully in favor of " abso lute free discussion, even of the subject of slavery. He goes farther, and says : ' We are under no obligation, political or otherwise, to refrain from a full and can did expression of opinion as to the mani- old evils, and deep disgrace, inflicted on our country by the institution of slavery. Nay, more, it will be one of the occasion al but earnest objects of this paper to show, by statistical calculations and temperate arguments, enforced by every variety of ! illustration that can properly be employ- ed, the impolicy of slavery, as well as its ! enormous wickedness : to show its perni- j cious influence on all the dearest interests I of the south; on its moral character, its: social relations, and its agricultural, com- mercial and political prosperity. No man rn n npnv mo mnmonfAne i m Tr rto rs 1 ' this subject, nor that it is one of deep in- terest to every American citizen. It is the duty then, of a public journalist, to discuss it ; and from the obligations of duty we trust the Plaindealer will never shrink. We establish this Darer derive from it a livelihood : and if an honest and industrious exercise of such talents as we have can achieve that ob ject, we shall not fail. But we cannot. for the sake of a livelihood, trim our sails to suit the varyinsr breeze of popular pre judice. We should prefer, with old An drew Marvell, to scrape a blade bone of cold mutton, to faring more sumptuously on vianas ootamea by a surrender of prin ciple. If a paper, which makes the right, not the expedient, its cardinal object, will not yield its conductor a support, there are honest vocations' that will; and better the humblest of them, than to be seated at the head of an influential press, if its in fluence is not exerted to promote the cause of truth." TV. Y. Evan. High Prices. The Philad. Chronicle, among tmany very plausible reasons for the present high prices of provisions, says also that it is ''to the neglect of agriculture and the diversion of a large amonnt of manual labor from the farming to other interests. Agriculture does not, in general, receive its due proportions of attention. There is scarcely a farm in this State that produces more than two thirds what it might be made to produce, if sufficient labor and attention were bestowed upon it. Works of public improvements, canals, railroads, &c. have given employment to a large number of la borers and induced hundreds and thousands of emigrants to come among us, and for this increase of population there has been a cor responding increase in agricultural produc tions." How long, let us ask, shall it be, before the agricultural portion of community shall be numerous and efficient enough to supply our wants 7 Since the commencement of the present year, there has been imported into Baltimore trom loreicn narts. r2A.12.-j. hushpl ot I wheat, when if proper attention had been Presidential Election. We now bestowed upon agriculture in this country, give as certain, the Electoral votes from we should have shipped grain ourselves, iu- all the States in the Union except Missis stead of having it pour in upon us.not only 1 sippi. The issue in that State is not posi at Baltimore, but New York, and u all along ! tiveiy known, but will probably be as here c n nra shore. Thank fortune, capitalists will by and by learn, that they must invent something in agriculture or their other investments must depreciate. It is a long road that has no turn, but we hope people will not break their necks in making the turn. A remarkable Fact. Some late exper iments by M. Namias of Vienna, on the blood of persons who had died of Cholera proves that there exists a deadly poison in He drew a portion of the blood from the heart of a person who died of this dis ease and inserted it through an incision in the skin of a rabbit, five days after wards the animal became dejected, and on the 10th day, died. The blood of this rabbit, was introduced under the skin ot another, which caused its death in 24 hours. The same phenomena attended the dissection of those of this as the other rabbit It was now desirable to know whether the blood of patients dead from other dis eases would produce similar effects. 1 ne doctor then inserted the black foetid blood of a person dead from intestinal gangrene under the skin of a rabbit, and the health of the animal was not effected. There was a similar result fallorinr the iniec tion of the blood of a person who died of an aneurism. Others will draw their in ference from these facts. N. Yt'Suz. Ma. Lziorf, Senator frcn Vr baa resigned his ecat in Ccr ;rrr ; i -ate reasons - ,; The Island oe Cuba. I am sorry to sec your respectable paper occupied in giving currency to reports relating to the Island of Cuba, not only unjustifiable in themselves, and unsubstantiated, but cal- culatedto alaim every citizen here, who may have relatives on that Island. I allude to the story of a conspiracy be ing formed amongst the free people of col or the T J k lllg Itl u 14 an insurrection of the negroes than which nothing can be more absurd ; for every one acquainted with Cuba knows that the free population ol color there, are, in the first place, in a verv small Dronor- JEM tion to the white ; and secondly, that they are an orderly and religious class, beyond any other in North or South America, generally gaining their own livelihood, and necessarily, from interest, devoted to the maintenance of order. Of the class of negroes who are in slave ry, I beg leave also to inform you that, contrary to what is found in every state or colony where slavery exists, the numeri cal force of these in Cuba is not equal to the white inhabitants ; and when we add to this that the whole physical force is in the hands of the latter, you will see how improbable, how impossible it is tor an in surrection to take place, of a kind so loose ly anticipated. Moreover, and lastly, the Island of Cu ba now possesses immense wealth, employ ed in agriculture and commerce; and the people are not prone to revolution, as has been amply testified, whatever may be the fate of the mother country. They have besides a good marine force, and a stand ing army, a well disciplined militia, and above all, a most excellent Governor, pos sessing resources in himself for every emergency. I am Sir, your ob't serv't, A n Old Inhabitant of Cuba. A. Y. Ej press. Gov. M-Dcftie's Mr.ssAGE. This doc ument comes outmost decidedly against the abolition of slavery in the District of Colum bia, and says that when this is done the slave-holding States are absolved from all obligation to the Union. Unexpectedly enough he comes out against Texas, and its admission into the Union, previous to the recognition of its independence by Mexico, alleging among other reasons that Me-rirn j aided by some European powers may de- Clare war against the Lnued States nnrt hoist the standard of servile insurrection in Louisiana, and the neighboring States ! This remark will have great etfect in the Southern States. X. Y. Ea press. Americn Temperance Union At a meeting of the Executive Committee of the American Temperance Union, held in New-York, Sept. 29th, it was Resolved, That E. C. Delavan, of Al bany, Isaac S. Joyd, of Philadelphia, and Rev. Justin Edwards, D. D., of Andover. be a committee to secure the services of a suitable editor for the press at Philadel phia." As the New-York State Society intend to discontinue the American Temperance Intelligencer after the termination of the third volume, which will be complete in December, the Executive Committee of the American Temperance Union desire to commence a temperance paper in Phil adelphia to supply its place ; the first number to be issued in January, provided a Suitable editor can be procured to un dertake a charge so responsible and im portant. The salary will be liberal, and applications for the appointment maybe madt- to either of the committee. A writer says Formerly vou could rrot I cabbage and cold victuals in Washington j for eight and ten dollars the week, but now you are chalked up to the beautiful tune of 'fourteen dollars, and yet the cabbage and j cold victuals are what they were in the year j 1750. It requires a philosopher with a full I pocket, to stand such things. Bos. Press. Ringworms. A lady, from actual and repeated experiment, has found that con centrated Chloride of Soda is an immcdi- ate and effectual cine for the sting of lee$, I mosquetoes, &c, burns (where the skin is not broken) ring-worms, and such like ' inflammatory affections ; and she thinks i it micrht be successfully extended to the bite of venomous reptiles, boils, and almost ajj cutaneous diseases.
