VERMONT TELEGRAPH. 139 RELIGIOUS SUMMARY. Memoir of William Carer, D. D. Late Missionary 10 uengai rroiessor oi un ental Languages in the College of Fort William, Calcutta. By Eustace Carey ; with anjatroductory Essay, by Jeremiah Chaplin, D. D., late President of Water ville Colleee. Hartford: Canfield and Robins, 1S37. 18mo. pp. 468. This beautiful edition of Carey is the second thit has issued from the American press. Thfl excellencies of this work hare been dwelt upon so much in several of our periodicals, that it might be deem ed injudicious to speak of them again in a notice of this new edition. The form in which it now appears, deserves a passing notice. It has beea reduced to a smaller, nd in some respects a more convenient : he. It has been put in an equally hand iome and legibk type, and stereotyped. On theme accounts the publishers are able io afTorJ it at a cheaper price, and have fiut it within the power of almost every riend of Missions to procure a copy. It it hoped that by this means, as well as by j jblishing it in another city, the work may btain a wider circulation than it would therwise have gained. It is believed hat no person can read the Memoir of Villiam Carey without becomingn warm ;r advocate for the diffusion of the Gospel ; or being conscious of some secret desire !5 become personally interested in that Gospel. All must feel the possibility of t' fir accomnlidiiag some valuable good, her for themselves or others, if, like Cirey, they will only "plod." Tho introductory Essay that accompa- Ics the present edition, was written bv Dr. Chaplin that well known friend of I irning, literature, philanthropy, and re 1 on. Anything bearing the signature c Jeremiah Chaplin, might be expected t 'contain valuable thought, and useful explication. We have not been disap r minted in the effusion from his pen. I very one, especially young men intend i, j to engage in ministerial labor, ought t read this essay as much as the memoir i elf. It is such a comment upon it as ' e experience of a mind like Chaplin's rould naturally make ; & such as a young s jan would seew trorn the lips of a father i t Christ. We will name the points up- n which he descants, honing they may xcite attention to the whole of it. ; After speaking of the utility of biog isphy, especially sacred, the author re narks: "v"'Mn contemplating the individual who is the subject of this memoir, we men tvith some interesting practical truth., which cannot fail, if rightly understood, to be of great use to us in the journey of lifo. A few oftheso will be noticed in a :ursory manner. "And the first which we shall mention, s the possibility of uniting dt ep and ar dnt piety with an assiduous a:ui success ful cultivation of science and literature. The Life of Dr. Carey furnishes the most Satisfactory proof of the truth of this sug gestion. 1 " Another very prominent truth which he memoir of Dr. Carey suggests, is ' the pre-eminent importance of moral ftorth. , I "A third truth suggested by the folio w ilg memoir, is the encouragement which At lift of Dr. Carey affords topious young rse n who art called to devote themselves to llissionary labors. .

At a meeting of the several Banking Institutions of the State of Vermont, hold en at Montpelier, on the 10th day of Mav, 1837, the following Banks were repre sented by the gentlemen whose names are annexed : Brattleboro' Bank, Mr. Chapin.

On motion of Mr. Kendrick, Voted, That a committee of five be ap pointed to draft resolutions for the consid eration of the meetins. The following gentlemen were appoint ed : Messrs. Kendrick, Sceele, Henry, Spalding and Chapin, who reported the following resolutions, which were unan imously adopted : 1. Resolved, That we hare the hiffhest confidence in the general soundness of our Bar.k, and in their abundant ability to per form all their engagements to ihe public; and that we pledge ourselves to the adop tion of such means as shall lead to the re sumption of specie payments in the shortest possible time. 2. Resolved, That the experience of ma ny years ha3 convinced us '.hat the meas ure of keeping1 the country bills at par, by redeeming in Boston and other Atlantic cities, furnishes at once a most useful check to over-issues, and a safe test of the condi tion of the country banks. 3. Resolved, That the Banks of this State will take effectual measures to keep their bills on a oar with the bills of the banks in Boston and the other Atlantic cities. 4. Resolved, That we will receive in payment or on deposiie at our respective Banks the bills of all such Vermont Banks as shall comply with the third resolution, by keeping their notes at par with the Boston Banks. 5. ReoIved, That we disapprove of the employment of exchange agents, or of mak ing exchanges otherwise than at the counters or through the olhcers ol the Banks. 6. Resolved, That the committee pre pare an address to the public, setting forth the causes which have led to the suspen sion of specie payments by the Banks of this State, and giving such explanations of the condition, and such assurances ot tne soundness and safety of our naonied insti tutions.' n thev mav dppm necessary to satisfy depositors, bill holders, and the com munity at large, that they have no reason to apprehend loss from receiving or holding notes of the local banks. Thomas Emerson, Chairman Geo. C. West, Secretary. ADDRESS. The subscribers, having been appointed by a convention of delegates from the sev eral Danks of this State, holden at Montpe lier, on the 19th day of May, A. D. 1837, to prepare an address to the public, setting forth the causes which have led to tne suspension of specie payments by those in stitutions, and giving such explanations of the views and purposes of the Banks as might be deemed necessary.thmk it proper in the outset, to state, that there is nothing in the condition of the Banks themselves, whether we regard the amount of specie in their vaults, the extent of their circula tion, their credit in the Atlantic cities, or the soundness of their discounted paper, to render the suspension of specie payments necessary; but that the measure has been forced upon them, as the only means of safely to themselves, and of relief to the public, by the extraordinary and unexpec ted condition of money affairs in the At lantic cities, and by the course which the O. -1 r . i ' i e A I uaum oi mose citie3 nave iouuu dient, in self-defence, to pur3ue. It is notorious to all persons at all c.ootersant with the principles of banking, that it is neither necessary nor expedient for those institntions to keep at all times on hand a sufficient amount of specie to redeem all their bills in circulation. It is unnecessary, because, their circulation be ing widely diffused, their notes can never be collected io sufficient sums to exhaust a Terr large amount of p-old and silver the mor especially as the redemption of keeps them at par there, and thereby in creases the difficulty, and diminishes the inducement, to collect them for the pur pose of withdrawing the specie from the country banks. ll iinexvedienl. because the canital in- vested in gold and silver, while lying in ! tne vaults, is unproductive, and, which is j lease of the American schooner Champi a great evil, is withdrawn from general on, and if refused, the Mexican armed circulation." Experience has taught the brig, formerly the Farmer, then at an proportion which the specie should bear J chor oft the bar, should pay the forfeit, to the circulation, and for the reasons ; but the Commandant of the Port returned above given, the retaining of an excess ' answer that the Champion could not be above that proportion by the banks is in- released, ordered the officers of the boat juriousboth to those institutions and to the j on board with a message to the command public.

The New-Orleans 1 12 per cent, per annum, and at the close sudden increase of the demand for those ; correspondent of the National Intelligen- 0f business thev were not to be had at mean?, jium uuiuuu,. 1 he obvious consequence of the stop page of the city banks, including those which have been accustomed to redeem the notes of the country banks (to which they are still largely indebted) is an im mediate rise in the price of specie, as com pared even with the best paper. For many purposes, especially on the seaboard, specie is absolutely requisite, and ihose who are obliged to use it must have it at any price. The effect of this will be, that the Vermont Banks, unless they refuse to redeem in gold and silver will be exposed to an immediate drain of their specie, by the city brokers, who will collect their bills for the purpose of speculation, and by this means, whatever coin remains in Vermont will at once be withdrawn, and carried to the seaboard for sale. If tliL Banks suffer themselves to be thus drain ed, (and it is believed that a very few days would suffice for this purpose,) it must be a very long time before they can accumulate-a sufficient supply of coin for the re demption ol their bills. But, admitting the ability of the Ver mont Banks to meet the demand for specie. there is another view of the subject of yet deeper interest and importance to the. peo ple of this State. It is very obvious, that if thev continue to pay specie, thev can only sustain themselves, in the present disturbed state of the currency: by calling in all their available means, enforcing col lections, andfutterly ceasing to discount, or even to renew discounted paper. Spe cie then being withdrawn, and the Bank notes called in, we shall be without a CIRCULATING MEDIUM. 1 he UiSaStrOUS effects of such a state of things in the sacri fice of pioperty by forced collections, the general depreciation of all articles of sale, and especially of lands and produce, the destruction of all credit, and the conse quent interruption of business, will be read ily perceived, and we cannot doubt that our fellow-citizens will do us the justice to believe us sincere in declaring, as we do, that we are actuated rather by a regard to what we conceive the best good of the community to acquire, than by narrow views of the private interests of the Banks. We are not ignorant that the suspen sion of specie payments exposes the banks to heavy leal liabilities, and we are as suming a solemn responsibility in advis ing them to the measure, but we look to the intelligence mid justice of the commun ity for our justification, and by the verdict which public opinion shall pronounce, we are content to stand or fall. In conclusion, we think it our duty to advise bill-holders, both at home and a broad, to make no sacrifice upon the notes of any of the Vermont Banks, and we feel ourselves perfectly safe in confidently as suring them that all the Banks of "this State will very speedily be prepared to re deem with gold and silver, dollar for dol lar, and that in the mean time the notes of i all of them will be kept on a par with the notes of the Banks in the highest credit in the Union.

Two small dwelling houses, occupied by French families, were razed to the ground in or der tto check the further progress of the devouring element, otherwise it is very probable it would have extended to the entire corner north, sweeping a goodly number of oilier dwellings, as well as Mr. Martin's s'ore.

Middlebury Free Press. j The Valley Road. We are happy j to learn that the Commissioners under i the act of the last session of the Lejrisla- ture ol mis ouue, appropriating money for the survey of a Railroad route from the south line of this State to Canada, through the vallies of the Connecticut, and Passumpsic rivers, have secured the services of Alex. C. Twining, Esq. as su perintendent. Mr. T. is the chief engi neer of the Hartford and New Haven Railroad, and madethe surveys for it. It must be extremely gratifying to the friends of this enterprise, so important to this State, to know that the survey is to be in the hands of so able and scientific an Engineer, and one so well and so fa vorably known. It is expected that he will enter upon his duties about the mid dle of this month, and complete his plans and estimates in season to be presented to the Legislature at the next session. We hope the citizens of the various towns on the route will manifest their interest in the enterprise, by rendering all the assis tance in their power, and by giving the Engineer the benefit of their local knowl edge. Vt Phanix. The mails of of to-day bring the intel ligence that the banks of this state have by common consent, suspended specie payments. The Middlibury Bank has redeemed its bills up to this time, but its officers deem it best for the Bank and the public, to adopt the course pursued by the other banking institutions of the state. The Banks have adopted the wise st course, under the present circumstances of the country, and the one which is, probably, safest to the community. This state of things is deplorable and is, in our opinion, the inevitable result of our banking sys tem, but it must be endured, and the best possible way to meet the evils, is to avoid all panic and wait with all the patience possible for a remedy. We think that most of the paper will be good and ad vise bill holders to make no sacrifices on money they have. We shall endeavor, so far as our weekly sheet will permit, to keep thepublic ndvised of the truth. Middle bnry Free Press. Air-tight Stove. Plain Stoves of this kind are to be had in Boston at from $6 to $15.

From 5 years' ex perience, I can also assert with the utmost confidence, that for comfort, convenience, and safety, there is no stove known in this country to equal it Two minutes a is the full amount of time required in us management. If managed according to his directions, over 10 per cent. Money was offered alo on stock securities at 12 per cent., and we know that some of the banks had not so much satisfactory paper offered as thev had means to discount. The indi- cations now are, that money will soon be plenty at 7 per cent. If so. it will be a distant day before it will be scarce again. N. Y. Jour, of Com. The Times. There was a very great change for the better in the feeling of the business men yesterday.

Men now hope to be able to settle their affaiis and transact their necessary business without beincroverwhelmed with ruin. Id OBITUARY. DiEn In Rutland, on the 4th inst. of consumption, Esther H. Cotting, in the twenty-fifth year of her age. It is worthy of particular remark that the ' sacred writers have not narrated the precise Lanner in which those holv men and wo- men whose lives they record, terminated their earthly course. The Holy Spirit, by whose command and aid they wrote, fore- knew lull well that death would be suffi ciently revolting and dreadful to the human family, without the addition of any of those adventitious circumstances, with which by the bad taste of mankind in all ages and na tions, the bed of the dying has heen invest ed. Nor shall the heart even of a father betray the writer into an unnecessary detail of the various stages by which the foe, "steady to his purpose," pursued his victim, until death with friendly aspect and hand arrived to wipe away all tears forever from her eyes. Of the subject of this notice, suffice it to say that many wearisome months were appointed unto her, all of which she endured- with a degree of meekness, forti tude and submission to the divine will, which the religion of Christ only can in spire. She was very early in life the subject of serious impressions, loved christian com pany and listened with a lively interest, as she subsequently informed me, to their con versation. In 1832 she was made the subject of that gracious change, which, evidenced by a public christian profession, and a uniform course of piety, prepared her for a mansion "prepared" for her in the skies. When she saw that her death was near, she sent for her father to her bedside, and said to him iu a low whisper, "The Lord is come to take me home glory be to him he hath done all things well." She called, after this, for water, and on receiv ing it, said, " O how sweet." She retained her presence of mind to the last moment of consciousness, as she signified by a motion of her head to the Question of her father if M she knew her hand was in his? He kissed her departing spirit as it went up to heaven, and is left as sincere a mourner as ever wept the bereavement of acfjild. Nor does he weep alone. Lovely in her life, aDd beloved by all who enjoyed the slightest acquaintance with her, he is assur ed of the sympathies of the numerous friends of the deceased, for whose sake chiefly, in the various circles in which she has moved, this brief notice has been written. Com. We deeply sympathize with the bereaved family. This is the third, if not the only remaining, daughter and sister removed by consumption within about two years.
