Yankee Enterprise. The Fall
River Archetype tells the following
story : ,
" Capt -Thomas Sandford, who is in
his 70ih"vear, in lhe little sloop Morning
Star, of thirty ton?, left this port on the
29th of last May, for the port of Harbor
Island, West Indies, and made land nt the
Holein tjie Wall, on Abaco, in nine days;
after which, for six days, it rained and was
so thick that neither sun, moon, nor star.,
were to be seen. On the 19lh June he
left Abaco, for Powel's Point, Eletheuera,
or Hetera, where he arrived on the even
ing: of the 20th. The next day, 21st, he
loaded with fruit, such as pine apples,
limes and oranges, and sailed for this port
on the following morning. He arrived
here the 3d inst., having been absent 35
days; having sailed out, and back, 2,800
miles. When Capt. Sandford prelected
this voyage, he stated that he was going
to the West Indies after a load of fruit to
sell here on the 4th of July. The state
ment was regarded as so incredible, that
many bets were taken that he -would not
return by the 4th. He Lad but 2 hands
with him, and the whole voyage was per
formed without a pea being put to paper
for any purpose. His reckoning was
kept with a piece of chalk, in the bottom
of his quadrant case.
The Crops. The Eastern (Pa) Whig
.cnus thp farmers of that vicinitv are now
in the midsi of their harvest. Already has
a considerable portion of the grain in that
vicinity been cut and should tr.e hue
weather continue the remainder of the
week, the whole crop will be secured.
The farmers represent the crap this year
as being very good.
The Crops of Michigan. We have
been furnished with a letter from a gen
tleman of high respectability, residing in
the interior of Michigan, which gives a

quarter of a pound. by a farmer who suf
fered gteally, from the'efiects of tfte storm,
and had ifie curiosity to weigh several of
the pieces of , ice that fell. Fortunately the
storm did not extend very widely. Its
fury seemed tobe expended in a breadth
of about a mile and half. We understand
that if passed to the east of the town, and
extended to French Creek, in the United
States, where it was encountered in all its
violence almost at the same hour that it

The Lyceum Plan of Education.
A letter from Boston mentions that the
Boston Lyceum has resolved to lake two
shares in the Lyceum Village, Berea, O ,
as well to manifest its gratitude to the
founder of the Lyceum system (Mr. J.
Holbrook) as its sympathy in every well
directed effort to promote the great cause
of Education.

"As fatas the returns of the election have
reached us, the conservative parly, which
is in favor of retaining the" present corn
laws, has gained." We see no reason to
expect the triumph of the liberals, though
for this we have been hoping. As an
American citizen we have hoped that a
market for our grain would be opened in
England, so lhat we might be able to pay
off our annual dues to that country, in
articles produced on our soil. And for a
further reason we have hoped it. The
general dispositions of the liberal party
are more friendly to our country, than
those of the conservatives, and the chances
for settling the questions in dispute be
tween us withoutfesor.t to arm?, ore
greater when the liberals are in the as
cendency, than when the conservatives
hold the reigns of government. N. E.

The petition of the undersigned citizens o

but we have ascertained from the chair
man of the jury that they have reported
by a majority of five to one, that damages

ty to the amount of thirty-three thousand
dollars, and that ih(xownfrsf the proper

mob. The term? of tijetfappoiiitment, it
appear?, limited the jury to the determina
tion of these two points, viz., the amount
of damages sustained, and the participancy
or non-participancy of the owners. One
of the jury dissented from the other five
in their report, on the around that the ,
owners were active participants.
Although the gentleman of the jury
from whom we received our information
expressed the opinion that the question
would still be an embarrassing one for
settlement, yet we cannot help considering
the report as tantamount to an award.
The law is plain, and the jury's report
make the facts plain, and it appears to us
that nothing is left but for the Court to
confirm the report, and certify the same
to the countv commissioners, whose busi
ness it will then be to draw. a warrant upon

Pierpont will triumph over all the per
secutions of his enemies. He stands now
unharmed ir, the fiery furnace into which
the heathen have cast him. The evidence
educed thus far on the trial is really con
temptible; but it is the Lest in the market.
The 'proprietors of the Holh's-st. church'
are doing all they can do, but they are
confirming the almost universal beliefthat
they war against John Pierpont because
he is an honest and a faithful preacher of
the religion which they themselves pro

hold up other and kindred vices, in which
some of his parishioners participated, as

To show how it is expected to convict
Mr. Pierpont, we can not resist the tempt

having used indelicate' wore, in a ser

similar feelings of dissatisfaction. On his
cross-examination, he was requested to
mention one who had been so exceeding

Had he not attended the cnurcn since me

foreign or imported grain vary inversely
with the price of mio. That is, wbep
grain is scare. and high, the duties are
low ; when brca'd stuffs are abundant and
cheap, the duties aro high. Such duties,
of course, give totheBritish agriculturists
the exclusive possession of tfieir market,
excepting in times of scarcity. When the
crops in England are irood, vve can send
them no flour and corn, because the laws
there then impose a duty on what ve send,
so high, that we can not pay it without
loss on the shipment. We can never en
ter their market until what they have
produced isearly consumed. This reg
ulation, by ueeping np the pTice of grain,
is of course deemed by a large portion of
the farmers of England, of vital impor
tance to their interests. But other classes
