His form grew erect once more, ami his eye ln ight ; his old good looks returned, and still a hruu r soldier never trod the Held. He was Captain how. A gentle inaii and olllccr by rank.

Tho facts are from the census, and the conclusions are just. VEBMOXT ITS AGRICI LTUBAL AD VANTAGES'. LMKGATIOX. The population of Vermont, in lSiio was :n.i(H.s an increase of !7.S, less than one third of one per cent, from l.sr.o. There, were found in the same year throughout the diked States Il.-5,;,"i2 natives of Vein nit, of whom L'o(J,0S7 were fouii'i iu her borders, showing that over 171.00(1 of her natives had gone to spread her free principles in every part of the Union. Of these 47,000 were found in the State of New York.of whom only 1300 were in tho . gruut metropolis. The second larg est number of Vermonters, I0".7!i4, were found in Wisconsin. Massa chusetts had given a homo to 18, tiTrJ; Illinois, ; Michigau, 13,- 779 ; New Hampshire, UJJoO : Ohio, ll.tioj; Iowa, 7.V5I ; Pennsylvania, 4S.; Minnesota, ; Indiana, ; California, 3110, &c. While the citizens of Ver.nout an of all the New England States, are valuable in a new country, like most of the Western States, named above, we believe they would make as good citizens nt home, and bo in nine eases out of ten, as well if not bet ter remunerated, ami furthermore he saved from the troubles nud anxi eties w hich atteud the settlers of a new country. Iy the returns to the Agrion'tu ral Itureau, at Washington, it is shown that during the four yeara from ISOl' to 1NG5, inclusive, an acre of hind in Vermont, 011 tholiverage, produced ,'17 (13 bushels of corn, worth is lS.it(, w hile an acre iu Wisconsin, the favorite resort of the Vermont emigrants) pr0dutf.1l .11.0 bushels winth ?i,0.,"l, showing largely in fii vorof Vermont. In the latter State l.l.Oi bushels of w heat, worth ?J0. 0,'i, was raised, whiu in Wisconsin the product was 1 i.'i bushels, val ued at 11.0.1, and nearly as large an advantage in favor of Vermont was shown in other staples, such as rye, oats, barley, buckw heat ami po tatoes, both as regards the number of bushels to the acit ami the prices obtained. A still greater advantage to Vermont was shown in some of the leading product! over Illinois, the second fa 01 ite Western Statu for Vermont emigrants, and tho same was true of Vermont over the other Western States. Now as there are thousands of acres of land iu Vermont w here tiie plow has nev er h, en 'ind us a market on 11 bo found, and the highest prices obtain ed. in New England for everything raised within its boundaries, as a i disinterested parly wo would submit; wheflicr the young man of Vermont who is designing to engage in agri cultural pursuits would not tiud it us Wfjl to remain at home, aud make t he hills and valleys of his own Smto more fruitful, and gain a lilvornl rec ompense nearer his own friends anil early nssociales, instead of seeking a home among strangers in the far West, ami depriving himself of the advantages he would receive in the Green .Mountain State.
