Jam 11 ci. We now have the Jamaica
Oaxette to July 14. It is filled with let
Urt, docu'.nenu, and facta connected whh
tht ue.v order of thing. The first atu n
tioa is ofcouriedue toiho km AKCirATioa
act of Jamaica, which we copy in full, as
nevf illustration of the simplicity of do
ing right. -The Original Apprenticeship
Act had 61 sections, and Lord Glen trig'
Dill for its amendment to make it tolerable
for two years, had 30 sections .; But the
act for entire and unconditional emancipa
tion by the planters themselves, as only
m, vii: turo for emancipation, two to
ectue the laborers from -being "turned
right out of doors,", two lu prouJe for the
tick and infirtrt'.and the last to declare the
day on which thla becomes a holiday thro'
out the island. : Lock at. this, ye states
men of Kentucky I Look at it, profound
legislators of the South. Compare this
act with yotff complicated and unwieldy
legislation fur the security of slavery, and
vrith the still more intricate machinery of
gradualism, : and team the lessons of wis
dom. .
Ilara follows the Act ia tht Emancipator.
The next document Li interest is the
Governor's Proclamation, requiring the
Ttligiouf observance of the First of Au

On Sunday the 17th of June last, Mr.
Ivory Libbey, of Denmark, Me.1 aged 21,
with an uncle to whom he had hired for
a season, in Bridgeton, went out upon the
pond on a fishing and fowling excursion.
Having finished their fishing, and rowing
down the' pond on their return home, a
loon appeared in sight. The young man
reached forward, seized the rifle by us
muzzle, and in drawing it to him, it dis
charged and lodged its fatal contents in his
breast. He sprang upon his feet threw
his arms around his uncle's neck, saying
he had received his death-wound be
ged his uncle to hasten ashore a quickly
as possible, for he wanted to see his fa
ther ; then falling on his knees, with his
bleeding bosom on the seat -of the boat,
prayed for mercy until be could no long
er speak and and expired in about thirty
minutes. The writer attended the funeral
the next day, discoursing from Eccl. ix.
12: For man knoweth not his time."
He has left a respectable family, father,
mother, brothers and sisters, to mourn his
untimely death. Johv Pike.

NEWSPAPERS.
"As ready vehicles of public intelli
gence and instruction, newspapers are of
indispensable svrvice; they are eminently
republican. They are the most constant
companions and teachers of the people.
In their daily visits, they are at the doors
of theii patrons to give them the news,
first in the morning and first in the eve
ning; frequently they breakfast and dine
and sup with them ; thy entertain them
in the parlo', and advise them in the
counting roo.n; they travel with them in
all the coaches, cars and steamboats, upon
the public ways; there is not an alhe
oceuoi, nor reading room, nor house of
entertainment, nor any pi. ice of public
daily resort, whe-e their fjrms are not
seen, and their voices hoard. They are
in truth the o.Tini-presnt geniuses and
tutelary god lesei of the people, and if
there bs any truth i,i the proverb, that
they who perpetually have our ears, have
at last our faith, their influence must be
great and dtjeisive upon th? destinies of
this republic. Considering their immense
povr over the public mind, every good
citizen must see the importance of en
deavorinft to save them from perversion,
of elevating their character, and dissem
inating them as widely as possible. Eve
ry family that can afford it, should take at
least one paper, and should exercise the
most wise discrimination in the selection.
Few men confer more benefit upon the
community than good editors, and few do
more harm than bad ones." Winsow's
Oration.
It it also true that the newspapers are
the chronicles of civilization the com
mon reservoirs into which every stream
pours its living waters, und at which eve
ry man may come to drink. It is the
newspapers that give to liberty its prac
tical life, its constant observation, its per
petual vigilance, its unrelaxing activity.
The newspaper, is, in fact, a sermon for
tho thoughtless, and a library for the poor.
It is calculated to stimulate the most in
different, to instruct the most profound.

Temterance Measures. Our friends
who have the management of the Tempe
rance Society. seem determined to keep a
bout even sides with the abolitionists. On
the UtholSept. "simultaneous meetings"
re to be held in every county in the state
ot New-York, to discuss the evils of our
iquor laws and the remedy, and to take
measures for a general petitioning to the
next legislature praying them effectually
to ' prevent the Empire State from being
a partner in the manufacture of drunkards,
paupers, maniacs and criminals!
They propose that some one emoient
citizen, male or female, be found, who will
undertake to se that a petition is present
ed to every person of suitable age in n par
ticular town or district, and that the num
ber of these be sufficient to cover the
whote country. These petitions should
be returned to a county committee, ap
pointed for that purpose, and if possible for
ward to the Legislature bvthe representa
tion of thu county, on the first meeting of
that Doay. U Jring tne hrst week in me
session, every petition should be in."
Only think of it, Mr Winslow a cjt-
tzen lemaie in every town or uisinci,
getting ont of her sphere, and meddling
with politics," and even going irom nouse
to bouse to spin stret-yarn" mid get up
pennons to the legislature" to "aictate
to our rulers' about the laws. And Mr.
Cummings has not warned us hero in
York State about the disgrace of having
women rule over" us. Truly, "the
times are out of joint." Emancipator.
The Proportions or Christian

of thin IfllA onrnnalinn of the Queen Of
England, and deyote upwards of Jict col

for asking people to sign a petition to the
Legislature for the suppression of the traf

Missouri. The Governor is elected
for four years. His salary is $ 1500 per
annum. The terin for which Mr. Eagg-s,
the present Governor, was elected, expires
in 1840. The Senate is composed of
thirty-three members, who are elected in
classes for four years. Of this number a
majority are to be elected on the lirst Mon
day in August. At the same time the
Representatives to the Slate Legislature
and members of Congress are to be chos

A New Question. Application was
made to the late Circuit Court of tha TJ
nited States for the district of Ohio, for an
injunction to restrain, the state of Ohio
from throwing a dam across the Maumee
river, which, it seems, is necessary in cur
rying out her system of canals. The
ground of the application is, that the or
dinance of 1787 "declares the Maumee
10 be a navigable river," and that the pro
posed dam is likely to dt-stroy or injare
its navigation, it is contended that the
ordinance is paramount to the constitution,
and of course to any laws that may be
passed by the Legislature. The court,
considering the question new and import
ant, held the application under advise
mtnt. Great Sale of Durham Cattle.
Mr. Clarkson of Cincinnati, recently sold
at auction, on his farm in that neighbor
hood, his stock of Durham cattle. Tiir
whole amount of the sile fell but a little
short of 823,000. This is believed to be
the largest sale of the kind ever made by
one individual of the United States. One
fine bull sold for 81450 one cow sold
for 8975 another cowand calf for 81075
another cow 81000 a heifer a year
old sold for 8850 the balance for "vari

The South. The Mobile Advertiser
says "it is a fact worth mentioning, and it

many as wish to improve in an accomplish

FAIRFIELD ASSOCIATION.
The churches composing this Associa
tion are hereby reminded that their next
anniversary is to be bolden at Enosburgh
Falls, to commence on the 3 I Wednesday
in Septemper, at 10 o'clock A. M.
It may not be improper also to remind
the churches, of several resolutions which
were passed at the Association last year,
touching their pecuniary operations for be
nevolent purposes. At our last session
we resolved thnt we felt it our duty, the
present year, to raise and pay in'o the
Convention 400 do! la'rs for benevolent pur
poses; (which would be more than 40
cents on each member,) and appointed
Trustees, as collectors to receive and for
ward collections to the Treasurer of the
Association. How fir the Trustees and
churches have done their duty in this res
pect, is best known to themselves. We
hope that the Trustees will each of them
look to this matter, and where any remiss
ness may have occurred endeavor speedily
to correct it. Probab'y there never was a
time when every department of benevo
lent operations were in more pressing need
of vigorous and epeedy iiid never a time
when the supply was so much less than
the demand.
We resolved also iotmake vigorous ef
forts to raisi at least 10 Ct nts on a mem
ber for our Education Society ; and to take
efficient measures to procure tracts for cir
culation in this region. Let brethren and
sisters prayerfully consider these things
and act accordingly. An agent of the Bap
tist G3neral Tract SocJety designs to beat
the Association with a supply of tracts,
and perhaps a better opportunity will nev
er be enjoyed for brethren to avail them
selves of the advantages of this Institution.

Clerk of the Association.
Fairfax, Vt., August 3d, 1638.
TRACT AGENCY.
The subscriber having taken an agency
for the Baptist General Tract Society, for
the northern part ot Vermont and vicinity,
would give notice that he will furnish
churches or individuals with any amount
of tracts they may desire, at the depository
prices.
HJ designs, as far as he can by exchang
ing with ministers on tha Sabbath, and
by week day excursions, to visit' the
churches. But as he has the pastoral care
of two churches, (which he supplies al
ternately on the Sabbath,) one in Fairfax
and the other in Fairfield, be does no ex
Kct to be able to visit all the churehfs
e would therefore request the pastors to
lay the subject before their people and se
cure if Dosjible-their co-operation. And
where any church is desirous W arttif
j themselves of the advantages this institn
I ion furnishes for their own, or the benefit
- V " '
of others, and wish me to visit them, if j
they will forward me a letter post paid, I
will endeavor to visit them, with a supply
of tracts without delay. Or I can send any
supply of tracts for which money may be
sent from Fairfax from Dea. C. Benns'
of Burlington or from any place they
may designate at St. Alb:ins.

STATE TEMPERANCE CONVENTION.
The Executive Committee of the Ver
