In the til we endeavored to show that ,003. 000 would be nrcrwiry to yield the amount of in 'teriJt rtjuired bv the Statute, before the fund would V araHable tbat llfry-four year would elapse lefbrc that turn could 'be accumulated, if tho debts due the fund wero paid ; that ill's dibt wai 9 151.000; that tlfincre eiprnseof collectinc: that rum by Ux would bo at Iron JI0,5.9,24, nil which mutt be Iwrt that If the debt were not paid, 200 years would lie required, at the past ra tio of increaw before '$1,000,000 couM Iks accu mulated ; that if the fund were collected in 54 yenrs there would hare been sunk in the collection and manapemant at least 00,000. InMlm 0l No. wc showed as n matter ofnectsity that ifibe fund were ever accumulated to 95.000, 000. the government and the people would bo in ' tlie r latton of delator and creditor, the people being in lrUed to the government to the amount of tho 'fund ; that such n Mate of things would induco a servile dependence in the people on the government incntuirtcnt with the condition of freemen and dan gerous to liberty; that nflcr the Accumulation of the fund, the poor would be compelled to piy their rents and mtcrirt, due the fund, to educate the chil dren of tho rich, while the rich owing nothing to the fund would be exempted from the payment of fehool taxes . that the rent and interest would be collected yearly by ttnlc executions, instead of lax hills, nndprobably will be far greater expmse and dilllculty. In No. I. we showed that our constitution nnd Nws ami th" ijeniii of our people were adverse to the necuinulating fin I perpetuating of money in masses, but that nil tend to diffusion ; that such funds cannot bo secured in perpetuity when they consist in personal securities; tliat even upon lands, frequently require military power to collect them, nnd that it is hopeless to attempt to perpetuate 'such n fundis ours. In the 5l h No. wo showed, that tho attempt to dis tribute thn procediof tho sale of pnblic Innls, even after the money was collected, and not wanted for tli.i purpose of government, and when it could not bo tiled without end-mgering tho tarifT, had been strongly opposed, nnd at times successfully resists til ; and still tho friends of this fund would con tend for tho collection of money hy a direct tax, nnd probably mor for the very purpose of distrb-i tiling it at an uncrrtain pcrioJ, from 50 to 200 years hence, and to men who would probably be in a better condition to educate themselves than the present generation. In the Cth, that tho fund if collected would op erate disadvantageous!)' upon the causo of educa tion itself, and if it would bo placed in a position of safety and security, was neither necessary ordesir ble; that our present mode of supporting schools was lobe preferred to that proposed by the fund ; that Instruction was moro efficient with us, than in 'Connecticut, where they have had a fund based on -rcul estate. In the 7th, tlint it is not believed that a dollar of the fund will ever reach tho object contemplalled in tho net nnd that this has been admitted bv some, who arc opposed to its abolition, because of its possible ellect on their party Jlhtis demonstrating, lhat nartv. not rieht. was their rule of action : that the money paid into the fund would bo better applied to educate the present generation. In the Sih that from the history of the past nnd nnd of tho pilgrims in particular, it is shown, that it is mind and morals, not money, which will cn sure national education nnd prosperity. Such in brief, ore a few of tho many reasons, which have been and might be urged, why in our judgement the. State school fund, is unwise, unsafe, and ought most undoubtedly to be abolished. Wo have endeavored to state these positons open ly and freely. It would seem to us, that the sub ject is one of such importance, as to claim and se cure for it a careful and candid consideration hy every friend of the best interest of the State. We will not doubt, lhat tho subject will receive that consideration, from all persons, who care more from principle than party. In our next No , we will consider and examine the communications of same writers in the Age ndverse to the aqolition of tho school fund. AUDITOR. SOME OF THE EFFECTS OF TARIFF.

GEOLOGICAL SUUVEY OF VERMONT. It hi been a msitcr of much surprise, that while for ereral jcira past each annual Executive mea ige has urged upon the attention of the Vermont Leghlaiuia the policy of making the necessary ap prnpriations for th cprnmencemrnf at least, of this desirable object, that while but one opinion teems to exiit In tho minds of all of Its practical utility and the advantage- which termont must dariva from auch a suivoy yet our legislature for somo cause hat ao tar, refused tu act In accordance with the oft repeated recommendation of our two last Governor and contiary as we believe to tho will and feeling of nine tenths of our Intelligent peoplt. And thus whilo 'every body' ha supposed that each legisla luro for Ihe ptat three yeara would make a generous appropriation to this objocl nobody hat seen fit to take the necessary pains to make auch representa tion of the facta, as to induce thia body to act favor ably uon it. It is true lhat this Is a subject that appeals only to the 'belter feelings' of our people cannot bomado a matter of excitement or enthusiasm, and consequent ly, (poor human natuic) we can not expect to see that energetic and vigorous action upon it, which we olten soe exhibited upon matters of far lesa im poilancc to tho Stato and people, and which appeal to iiilier and baser passions. Yet as this is a ques tion Uon which all political pirtiea may and thould unite, a burial of the 'old Adam' upon this ono ques tion, rmy tend to make up for tho opposition which a more exciting subject might call forth. The great importance of such a survey, and the advantages to be, by Vermont derived from it, are too apparent, too certain, to need, it aeems to us, a single com ment. It is well known lhat many of the States havo already mado these surveys, and the result in all (whore it has been done) has been most cratify. ing, as tending to advance the causo of acience and agriculture, the mechanic arts, and advancing great ly the pecuniary interests of all. It has been the means of developing hidden and boforo unknown resources, has given lifo and enemy to enterprise and an Impulse to public and privato improvement. Hut regarded only as a mitter of State pride and a a doty we owe to the cause of scientific truth. wo think all liberal minded men who regard the character of our Stale, should properly feel that upon Ihi subject Vermont should act promptly and generously. In most of the State these surveys have been made and in many, the full reports of the Stato geologists are already made up. From these Statu reports, which necessarily are moro perfect than any that are o bo obtained by individual ef forts a compilation of facts are being gathered for tho purpose of publishing a work of great magnitude and ihe importance of which will be incalculable, embracing as it will, all tho facts In connection wilh tho Geology of our Country. Shall it bo said lhat Vermont refuses her aid, or holds back in doing her share in furnishing the means, for ao desirable an object J We certainly cannot believe It. Hut it is not upon this ground alone lhat we would urge upon the minds of all, the necessity of press ing forward in this matter. Tho interests of all classes, tho farmer, the mechanic and tho man who by his daily labor, oarns his daily bread aliko call for the early prosecution of this work. To all those who hopoyet to see Vermont arousing herself from her lethargy and doing tomething in tho way of in ternal improvements the friends of rail-roads, will this subject especially commend iuelf, as a pioneer measure to the accomplishment of that desirable object. Regarding this subject then in a pecuniary point of view, it has, a it ssera to us, every thing to re commend it to tho earnest consideration of our peo ple. Thero it perhaps no section of our country richer in mineral wealth than Vermont ; and altho' Iron, Copper, Manganese, Copperas, marble and Serpentine have been blundered upon, and moro or less worked in the State, it is not at all probable that the best qualities or localities of thete articles, have as set been found while positive evidence as sure us of ihe existence of innumerable other varie lies of minerals Sic, which may be workod to ad vantage whenever by scientific and thorough exam ination iheir precise and certain localities &c. may be found. Hut we have already said more upon thia matter than we had at first designed ; our object being merely to call the attention of otliei to the impor tance of some action upon the subject, believing that the cause of the inaction of our legislature hereto fore, may be found in the fact that too little attention has been paid to it at home.

The Convention was composed of nearly nix hundred members, and were supposed to be about equally di vided in opinion a to the claims of Calhoun and Van lluren. 'The liberty party is chleflv composed of honest whigs, who having become disgusted with tho cor ruption and rottenness of iheir party, seek for refuge in third parly nominations, which are all as one with the Democracy. Through their firmness and the well directed efforts of the Democratic press, has Ihe Stale been saved tho disgrace of seeing In vested with Ihe robes of office through tho instiu mentality of the people, a man xchollu unworthy the honor.

What excuse can llieso apologists render for the continuation of theso miserable attacks after the election it past 1 Whether tho Legislature will pake' to elect Honest John, Governor, after the above condsmnation of him, we do not know ; tho' we rather think they will take the responsibility of doing so. MAINE ELECTION From returns as far as received from this State, it is probable that, although no effort was made by the whigs, iier is no choice of Governor by the peo ple. Hugh J. Anderson the regularly nominated candidate of the Locofoco party runs behind the field even in his own county, which in the palmy days of locufocoism has given that party 3.000 ma jority. So it appears that while the locofoco press are from one end of the country to the other, crying out 'all's well,' 'no division exists to disturb our har mony of action,' w see that they can not even in Maine concentrate their forces at all to their liking. The Calhounitcs of the party would not vote for An derson and have thrown their votes for Kavanagh, the present acting Governor, who is by far the fittest man for the office and should have been nominated by the party, as he would have been but that he is a Catholic. Another striking instance of locofoco love for the Catholic population. Whether or not the pretext of his being a Catho lic was made, the more successfully to opposo his Calhounism, is altogether immaterial. The event shows that In Maine, the much talked of 'unity' In the locofoco ranks, does not exist. For Congress, Hon. Robert I'. Dunlap, Loco, Is elected in Ihe Cumberland and Charles Andrews, Loco, in the Lincoln and Oxford District, and Lu ther Severance, Whig, pretty certainly in the Ken nebec and Franklin District, where the Abolition Uu did lhW MlghiUt to prevent a choice. In the York District, and in the Hancock and Washing ton, there is no choice. We suspect a Loco is oho sen in the Penobscot District. The Waldo District ha also elected a Loco. Alabama.

IL7 Caliioum Mxxtino in New York. A gath ening of something like 3000 people in the I'ark on last Thursday evening, called together to express their grievance in view of the contemptuous treat ment which they alledge the Calhoun portion of the great Democratic party havo received at the hands of tba Van Durenitet; served to mark the 'unity and concord' of this harmonious party. Of this meeting tho Trlbuno says, '4. D. Wilton was clectod President. No reso lutions wero presented, but Messrs. D. 11. Taylor ana tviiuam turner, uaicgates troiti this city to the ayracuso convention, made a statement or the man ner in which they, with the friends nf Mr. Calhoun from other portions of the Slate, had been tramnled upon and choated of their lights by the intrigues of ino Aiuany itcgcncy in mat convention. they earnestly cnircaieu uicir constituents not lo submit tamely to this contemptuous treatment, but to go forward and elect delegates, in whom thev could havo full confidence, to represent their respective districts in the National Convention. Could this be rully accomplished, they said they had no doubt of tho ultimate triumphant success of their candi date for tho Presidency, Tlieii addresses were well received and responded to by hearty and frequent Great Ilepeat Meeting. A large and enthusiastic Repeal meeting was held on last Thursday in New York, Dr. Hugh Sweenoy in tho chair. This meet ing the Tribune says, 'Was addressed at considerable ler.cth and with great eloquence by Gansevoort Melville. Esq. His remarks were exclusively directed to disprove ihut the cause of Repeal was declining in this country, as stated somo time since by the Journal of Com merce.

A JJcncdictino Monk, father Charles Berg, member of the celebrated Abbey of Benedictines at Melk, in Lower Austria, put an end to his life by piercing his heart with a poisoned stiletto. He is called by the Vienna cor respondent of the French Journal dts Debalus one of the most distinguished writers of Germany, and n au acquired great tamo ns a critic. The monk, who was of gentle and pliant character, was be loved as much for tho nualitcis of his heart as for thoso of his mind. From letters which ho wrote to his friends on the day of his death, it appears that ho determined on commiting suicide from his grcnt weariness of the monastic life. He had twice made a journey to Rome with tho single object of obtaining from the Pope a release from ins vows, no was aooui vj years old. Arrest of an Abolitionist in Marvland. We learn from tho Cumberland Civilian, that William Wall, an Englishman by birth, but recently of Uucks county l'a., was arrested on Monday last at a camp meeting near Kverstine's in Allegany county, charged with disseminating incendiary publications and inflaming nnd exciting the slaves against their masters. On Tuesday ho was bro't before Justice Fcchtig, and on examination wns committed, in default of bail, to answer for tho felony at tho next term of Allegany county Court. aammort supper. Short Cloaks. A Vermont Editor appears deli glited with the fashion the women have adopt ed,of wearing short cloaksnd says they are. just the thing for these hard times ; for every girl who has outgrown her cloak, and every woman whose cloak has become worn at the bottom, or dirty, has only to cut off ten or twelve inches of the same give it an extra brush and it will be in the height of fashion. Another's Feelinet. Never nursue a course which has a tendency to wound the feclines of an other.
