It is well known that our schools aro defec
tive and need improvement. In order to this,
- they should receive more attention ; they should
be tho caro of every man who means to ho a
practical republican, and wishes to perpetuate
our free institutions. Hut is it so 1 Is it not a
melancholy truth, that, in too many instances,
our scools aro wholly neglected, or made a sec
ondary object 1 This ought not to bo. The
best way to correct any evil, is to learn the facts
in the case. To tnako a beginning, it has been
thought advisable to have moro perfect returns
of tho children. The law provides that tho
clerks in each school district shall ascertain and
make a list annually of the children which may
be in his district, on the first day of January, be
tween the ages of four and eighteen, with the
names of the heads of families', and the number
of children in each. To do this correctly, the
names of the children should be given, and their
ages : but this is too often omitted, and mistakes
and frauds aro occasioned by it. It would great
ly facilitate the object, if all the clerks would
take their lists on the same day ; and tho clerks
in tho town of fttirlington are particularly re
quested to do that service on the first day cf
January. To aid them, blanks aro prepared, and
are in the hands of Mr. C. Adam?, who will
give them all the aid in his power, and explain
eome points which cannot bo stated hero. The
other towns in the county arc invited to take the
Buhjcct of their schools into consideration, and,
as far as practicable, to improve them. It is
thought desirable to have the whole number of
children in each town, the number of those who
attend school, and, whether district or private,
and the number of those who do not attend
school, with the paiticular reason for the omis
sion, in order that public measures may bo taken
to correct the evil.
We have the pleasure of laying before our
readers Mr. Van Huron's valedictory message to
the two houses of Congress. We say valedictory
as we presume lie will not attempt to imitate
his "illustrious predecessor" in the matter of a
farewell blessing. It is a cool dispassionate doc
ument, betraying no irritation or fault-finding,
and there is not the remotest allusion to the re
cent election, or to the fact that he is about to
retire from the chair of state. No one would
imagine even from the tone of the message that
Mi. Van Huron's political course was nearly run,
or that a contest, scarcely equalled in tho history
of the country, had just terminated. Tint, with
the most stoical indifference, he wraps his mantle
about him, and sits himself quietly down to 'bide
the hour of his doom. This studied indifference
or, in other words, contempt of the popular
will however convenient it may be to the mere
politician, in an emergency, but illy comports
with the frank, enlarged, and liberal spirit that
ought to characterize the chief magistrate ; and it
hut too clearly indicates the true caliber of the
man, while it bespeaks, in no equivocal terms,
the deep mortification it was intended to hi 'c
When the embryo cub-treasury was first shad
owed before the American people, the fact that a
ingle state, by an indirect expression of tho
popular will, had indicated a disposition to sus
tain it, wa deemed of sufficient importance to
demand special mention in a communication to
Congress; but now, after that measure has been
deliberately passed upon by the whole country
when nineteen of the twenty-six htatcs,by major
ties never so large, have condemned both it, and
its author the fact is passed over in contemptu
ous silence, while the obnoxious measure is per
tinaciously adhered to, and Congress besecched
to lash it upon tho people, in spite of their
lamentations! Let those who have rested their
faith in Mr. Van Buren's professions of regard
for the popular will reconcile these facts. Lot
them contrast this course, with that prompt re
cognition of the popular voice, on mere questions
of policy that ingenuous frankness, which so
pre-eminently characterizes the true republican ;
and then say how much we have erred in
representing him as a hollow hearted pretender
who, from the habit of moulding and shaping
public sentiment to suit his particular views,
had learned to regard it with most sovereign
contempt, when legitimately expressed.
So far as the language of the message is con
cerned, it is both respectful and dignified, and
presents the affairs of the country in a concise
and clear manner. The following synopsis
mbraces its leading features.
The tone of the Message is generally loco
foco. It commences with stating t' at the na
tion has avoided interference with the affairs of
other countries, and by correct dealing has ac
quired an honorable ctanding among the nations
of the earth, most of whom seek our alliance,
Nothing since the adjournment has occurred to
disturb the harmony between us and other na
tions. The northern boundary difficulties have
been under discussion, only interrupted by the
British minister referring to his government for
further instructions. Hopes are expressed that
the whole will be speedily settled. The three
commissioners appointed by this government
to view the disputed territory, will probably
throw now light on tho subject. It is probablo
that after some further investigation, the whole
will he referred to some friendly power.
Treaties have been made with Belgium, (in
cludinK the settlement of some old questions)
with Hannover and Portugal, and our relations
remain good with all the other European powers
A commissioner is now in Germany on the sub
iect of the tobacco trade.
The claims on Mexico arc under negociation
The treaty with Brazil will expire in Decern
her. 1841. Chili has agreed to indcmnily tl
owners of the Macedonian, (1819) and other
claims aro being pressed.
The line between Texas and this country
will be settled next season.
The sound (!) condition of the national finan
ccs is referred to with triumph.
Tho distribution of the surplus revenue and
tho reduction of tho tariff intnrfered with the
miblic treasury trrcatly : yet all demands havo
been promptly met, only four and a half millions
of treasury notes bemt; now out.
Tho government is complimented for main
taining tho standard of currency.
The indebtedness of tho States to foroign
powers is mentioned as a reason why the citi
rens of other nations may havo interfered with
our domestic concern. Tho government owes
nothing abroad, and is only response mr n
rnnaU sum, borrowed for somo part of tho His.
trict of Columbia. To keep clear of those
mortifying positions, tho action of government
must ho kept within bounds, nnd closo economy
must bo consulted. Economy, it is stated, lias
knn nilonted since 18S18. and tho only cxtraor-
iinary expenditures have been those connected
with tho Indians. In January tioxt, there will
uo in the treasury, 1,500,000, enough, with or
dinary income, to moot expenses.
Tho sub-treasury is lauded, and a fow altera.
tioiw in details hinted at. A few pages aro then
devoted to arguments against a national bank
and a national debt. Both have been nvnidnd.
and a system of economy introduced in their
place, (bo says tho message.) Reference is
again made to the economy of the government
and the system of specie payment, as tending
to prevent the extent ofcvils felt by many indi
viduals from excessive trade, &c.
Reference is then made to the Indian disttir
bailees, the state of the Navy, and Exploring
Mention is made that the Postmaster Gone
ral has a proposition for lightening the mails,
reducing postage, and insuring regularity of ser
vice ; and in reference to the slave trade, it is
suggested that our citizens bo forbidden to treat
with the slave factories in Africa.
It is not within our recollection that any pre
vious message from a President has fallen so
dead upon the public oar. It is hardly sought
for few are inclined to read it and those who
have, are inclined to say very little about it.

The undersigned, being engaged in preparinc
for publication, a new edition of his " Gazetecr
of Vermont," iu connexion with the Natural and
Civil History of the State, did, during the last
prmg aud summer, besides visiting many parts
personally, address circulars to postmasters, or
others, in most of the towns, requesting an
swers to such queries as would enable him to
give a full topographical, historical and statisti
cal account of tho towns, down to the present
time. To some of these ho has received satis
factory answers ; hut to far the greater part, no
answers have boon returned. Anxious that all
the towns should bo fully and correctly de
scribed, he takes this method to invite attention
to the subject ; and in case the persons to whom
the circulars were addressed are unable to at
tend to the business, he trusts that there arc
persons in each town, who can and will furnish
tho materials desired. In cases where tho early
history and topography were correctly and fully
given in the first edition, all that will bo neces
sary to be furnished anew, will bo a continuation
of the history down to the present time, and the
present statistics. Persons furnishing an ac-
count of their towns, will coutribute to render
the work more useful and satisfactory, and will
confer a favor on the public, and on the public's
ery humble servant,
P. S. Publishers of newspapers in Vermont
will confer a favor by giving the above an in
