We r elect the insinuation vith incredulous towards the memroy of the murdered, by saying that " his body should have been thrown into a felon's grave to rot, unhonor ed, unregarded," has not bad the courage to require of Congress the expulsion of the murderer! How consistent to pour out such a flood of indignation and contempt upon the dead body of the murdered, and at the same time have no more of censure for the living murderer than io say the popular practice in which he was engaged is as a tolerable illustration of the principle ' we now advance, to which we beg leave to Trfv-f the reader.

There is nothing thev deprecate . so much as to be considered wanting in courage. But does he deserve to be called courageous, who, in the prime of life, with a wife and family around him, a mind and an immortal soul within him. and heaven and hell before him, quails at the fingrr of scorn and derision pointed by fools and murderers ? Is it courage that moves him to throw away his life and his soul? Rather is it not consummate folly and madness? Here are some expressions from the press, touching the affair : Horrible Morper I One of the most shocking and cold blooded murders ever 1 1 M recorded, Has just Deen perpetrated at Washington by members of Congress, in open day and within a few miles of the capital. VVe refer to the death of the Hon. Jonathan Cilley, member of Congress from Maine, in a duel betwen himself and Hon. Win. J. Graves, member of Con gress from Kentucky. It is called " an at fair of honor," but if ever there was a de liberate and atrocious murder, that was one. Every mm who participated in any way, in the deed of blood, should be considered and treated as a murderer,, and every man who has the honor of a seat in. the Con- press of the United Slates, who aided and - . . a a. a a a abetted it in the least, should be indignant ly- expeiled from that body, it is time that such 'lawless and bloody proceedings should be confined to the region, where, if any where, they appropriately belong to the licentious, and tyrannous South; We cannot find words to express our ab horrence of the whole transaction, embrac ing as well the conduct of the victi m Wof the others concerned. " That a New Eng land man should acknowledge himself the subject of a code, always disgraceful to civilization and .hardly sustained among savages, is Dassing atrange. Am account of this horrible afiatr will be found in an other 2olttmn.-Jir,lr5Ta t Free Pres. .'f All the. parties; concerned, principals and seconds, are guilty of TOurder. jV.JB. ' Spttictot.k - " v. The Duel, again that outrag eous Duel! Mr. Wise, who was the second of Mr. Graves, and Mr. Jones, who was the second of Mr. Cilley, have united in publishing an account of the duel, and of the attempts at reconciliation between the parties. Their account only deepens their guilt. It is a gloomy, hor rid, shocking, abominable affair. There is no language adequate to portray the folly, madness, and criminality, which appertains to all the parties. At the close of their communication, they say "We cordially agree, at all events, in bearing unqualified testimony to the fair and honorable manner in which this duel was conducted. We endeavored to dis charge our duties according to that code under which the partus met, regulated by magnanimous principles, and the laws of humanity. Neither of us haa.t.leam. he least exception to the coarse ot the other; and we sincerely hope that here all controversy whatever may cease. We especially desire our respective friends to make no publication on the subject. None can regret the termination of the affiir more than ourselves, and we hope again that the last o! it will be the signa tures of our names to this paper, which we now affix. Geo. W.Jones, Henry A. Wise." Infatuated men I "the last of it," will not be your signatures to sucn a paper I Your "duties, accordiug to that code un der which the parties met!"

For ourselves, we must say, we are at a loss to conceive how any persons, deemed fit to occupy seats in the government of this great nation, could be Jed into a course ot conduct so disgraceful and horrible. And it is still more unaccountable, that they should attempt to justify i on principles of honor 1 1 Alas I what folly, what mad ness, what criminality! Indeed, there ii so much of folly, so much of a murder ous spirit, and so much of guilt auached to ev-ry feature of lhat detestable affair, that we know not in what terms to speak of it, or whether we ought to pollute our columns with the names of the parties engaged in it.Zion's Watshman. It is time that such practices were dis continued ; that the councils of the nation set their face against them that expulsion should be visited upon a member that-sur-vives a duel. The wanton waste of human life, such as occurred in the death, of Mr. Cilley who, whatever may have been his accountability to the power claiming satis faction, was not certainly called on to plact his life or his soul in jeopardy by fighting Mr. Graves. Under the excitement conse quent upon the death of Mr. Cilley, we trust that some attempt will be made in Congress to prevent a further effusion ot blood by such uncalled lor means. 0. S. uazette.

Within our memory there has been no recurrence in this country , which has more strongly excited the public mind ; and never before did we hear a greater unanimity of sentiment than is manifest in the withering condemnation passed upon those who aided in effecting the late shocking tragedy. Can it be possible that these men will further outrage the feelings of the people by continuing, reek-, ing as they are with blood unnecessarily shed, to participate in the councils of " the nation?

N. Y. Spec. -LETTER I. To the Editor of the Vermont Talajtraph. Sir, The proverbial shrewdness cf the good people of New Eo5ra & Tlsuallr asc.atcd wuh conaideratioa and caution. They are accustomed to look before ther leap. s It is natural to them to inquire, ex amine and compare before they decide '; & it is on this trait in their character- that I rely for a favorable regard to the few brief letters which I hope to forward to you for publication, if you will do the society the favor to admit them. The people of New England have the reputation of being a reading as well as a thinking people; aud hence it is reason ably supposed, that the number of good substantial books read among them is far greater than the number read in any oth er part of the country. Born and bred in New England, and iw. s-v. luicrcii ywu ui eciivtj business there, and nearly all that time intimately conversant with her systems of education, both religious and literary, it would be strange if I were ignorant of the charac ter. of her population, (adult and juvenile,) or of the means and opportunities of in struction they enjoy, or of the kind of in tellectual and moral culture which is most appropriate lo their circumstances. By a singular concurrence of events, I was unexpectedly removed from Nevr England to this city, in the year 1829, & charged with the editorial supervision cf the publications of the American Sunday School Union. Since I have occupiei this post, upwards of three hundred differ ent works have been issued, embracing by iar tne largest aud most expensive part ol all our present nublicatinns Tho hr. 1 - m M s. VtlUi acter of these, without a single exception, is perfectly known to me. A vear or two since it became my duty to prepare a Descriptive Catalogue of all tha-publica-tions of the society (a copy of which, in a pampmer ot oci pp. vo.,is herewith tram mitted.) To this end I examined with critical care each .book, pamphlet, card. ur oiuer puuueauon issued trom their press ur . . . ' . uciurc iuy connexion with it. Knowing thus the circumstances of New England on the one hand, and the character of thesa books on the other ; and fully persuaded that the latter are admirably adapted to the former, and would be so regarded up on a fafr unprejudiced examination, it has been a subject of regret and mortification to lea rri from various sources, that cocr parattvely few of our publications are eja culated north and east of the Hudson; that many people are inclined to doubt their high evangelical character; that an im pression prevails that, they are not suffi- cientiy elevated in style or matter tor ma favored children of the Nortli. and that New England people are disposed on the whole to supply their own wants in theif Own way. That these impressions r general I never have believed, and ye there is no doubt that the circulation of our books is very limited in the schools families of Massachusetts, Copnectieo'' and Rhode Island ; and still more so per haps in Vermont, New: Hampshire, and Maine, and fhere must be some adequa' causo for itt? Perhaps the difficolty of ob taining a supply; or the abscence o'f suita- n n
