KniTon: Wc often henr the remark thai Vermont in mineral de posit is tlio richest of any New I'ngl.nnd State, and propose briefly to cxnmiiic the authority on whinli the statement is made. If true, it cnlln loudly upon her l.cgislnturo to make n su ITicicnt appropriation for a thorough, practical, .Geological Sur vey, of tliH Sluto. A Survey lius been, or is beiiiR made, ve believe, bill its prncticul results tlius for prot e its int'fiicicficy. Such a survey may add little, perhaps nothing, 10 sci ence, and were this the object in view,ve would not urge its uecessi ity ; but the fuel that it will still fur ther develope the hidden treasures of her lulls anil mountains, makes ihu question ono of importancu to her ns a Slate, and shojld be a subject of interest to her people, since by such a survey, acees'ions may be made to . , , , llcr XXCallll. Illlll COIIM'tlUCIltlx 1(1 lilt) - I The in i ne r;i 1 resources of a Slate, in the grneral ncct-ptation of the term, include not only her beds of Ore, but quarries of Stone. And lo both these sources of xveallh in Ver mont every ) cat is milling new dis coveries many of ihein, at present made by chance, mid operated nt a profit that commands the capital of the Atlantic cities us an investment. Her facilities for traiispotlalion In the csti r n Stales nnd ma-board place her in a favorable position In compete with the Atlantic States in ull her branches of industry. What r-he loses in ir. importation, she more than redeems in her ubiluy in loseu ihe expenses incident to other opera litnis Hence, Incui) of thooo ituprm its of Mineral and Sionc, that a few years sinre would not pay fur work ing, may now be operated to advan tage, and be made lo pay a large per ct. to their possessors. That mineral deposits, the exist ence of which bus been known for years have not been thoroughly testei', tvould appear from the fact that the Copper of Strafford, although once xvorked, has been abandoned for some years, xvhilo in the opinion nl sci entific men, the sinking of a shaft lo the depth of one hundred and fifty In two hundred leet, as is done m the Lake Supeiior region, might pay well on the investment. Copper is found here, not only in connci.tion xviih Iron as p"rile, but native. This deposit is now woikcd for Cop peras nlonc, n large amount of which is manufactured every year from the oro dug xvhilo the mine was xxrouuhl for Copper. Surface .Mining proved unproductive here, as it does uvery- xx here. In Mining, ns in Quarrying, it has been fully demonstrated in Kuronc us xvell us in our own country, thai the deeper Ihu t.hafl the better the quality, and in the former more pro diicuve This deposit is the out crop ol a vein supposed to nxtund for several miles, mid in the town nf Coniith a bed of equal probable rit'iniesss exists I he deposit nf Galena ul Thet- lonl, is an evidence that wo may look nearer homo limit tlio Western Stales ind Territories, for an article that eniers largely into the nrls and manufactures. This deposit has been xvuiked lo some extent, but hko the Copper of Strafi'ord. has, xve lielievc, laeu abandoned i lio Iron deposits of Brandon and rlymuuth show us thai the Mountains of Vermont arc "iron ribbed" unci that there deposits aro worked ut u profit, is demonstrated by the furnaces they support, ami ihu inanuiaetuies they send forth. Iron has ulso been found in Troy, Col Chester, Putney, Stockbridgc, and at uoxoury ; in the latter place, in the lorm ol Magnetic ort hrouiic Iron. 1 in has been discovered at Uov niton under circumstances thai strongly indicate its presence in veins. This is one of the rarer min- .-...i. . .. cials of our country, and anv locali ly xvnero it may b; found deserves tho attention of a practical Geologist. This, so far as xvo know, is tho only instance where this valuable metal has been found in tho Slate. Native dold has been found at Hridgewaler, in quartz, specimens nf winch nave been exhibited rivaling in richness tho gold-bearing quartz ol Lahlornia. How extensive the deposit may be, or whether in the aggregate the quartz is sulhcicnlly ricn to pay (or xvorking, has not yr been proved. Native Gold hag also been found in Somerset Graphite or Plumbago, Argentifer ous Galena, and Steatite or Soap stone have all been found in various sections of Vermont, inviting inquiry into their extent and capability of be ing xvorked to advantage and profit. The Slate of Vermont lias receiv d n large share nf public attention the past few xea'S, olid Ihe Slalo now being quarried by the West 1 Ciisilclon Slntu Coinpmy is primoiiii- ed, by comiieleut juilues. equal to j llio Wales Slate, ond must event- lly supply us place in our markets. But to the Marbles of this Statu pub lie nltenlion has been for n longer period directed than to the Mineral resources she mav possesj, and each year is adding to their value ami im-iin porlancc. At no former period have' ably the wealthiest nat nn on tlio her Marbles occupied so hili n place 'jjlobc; and although dependent to in the estimation of the public, as all some extent on Europe now for Mar the present time. This is partially ble, blale, rind some of tlio melals, it owing to the increasing favor xviili wliich all American productions are being received, but mainly to tlio j fact that, in the early history of her Marble interest, she xvas offering sur-1 face productions to compete with blocks furnished by the quarries of huropo that have been xvorked to a great depth. It is now proved that for beauty of color nnd variety of tyles as well as finish, xve aro able to compete successfully with foreign Marbles. The Marbles of Vermont, are now worked lo tlio extent oi nearly three million per annum, and yet the demand exceeds the supply. Among the varieties furnished am the While, Mack, Itluo Veined, Faxvn colored nnd Vcrd Antique Of the White, there are several vari eties and qualities, most of xvhicli olnnical Survey, we shall have accom are coarse in texture, and consequent- pitched the object xve had in view. ly iiiod but little, except for building Three thousand dollars, the amount and sephulchral purposes. In the appropriated at the last session of the past few years beds of limited ex- j Legislature for this purpose, maybe tent of the hnesl White St ttiary Marble have been opened, furnishing an a r tide preferred by many sculp- tors even to the Italian. I he lUack, riclmess of color and fineness of texture, equals any Marble of the kind nt present worked. The blue i veii'cd resembles nn Italian stone! thai has long ben used for ornament-, nl purposes, ami is being exleiuixely i ued in its stead, ihe rnwn-color- cd has lines of -brilliant black, and is one nf Ihe most heautilul of Ameri can Marbles. The Verd Antique i recent discovery, nnd being a kind f Maible but utile known in this country, ilccrvcs a more extended description. This Marble is of a brilliant green color, embraciim ex-c- varicly of shade, Irnui blackish green In very light, with whilo inter mingled in masses, cubes, anil veins iving to many portions of the stone brecci.iled appearance. As nn Ornamental Marble, it is unequalled by unv former dfecuvery in tins ..-nun- trv l ivi.. ii n ..nrf..,.i fac simile untie Italian Verd Antique from xvhicli it derives its name ; and has been pronounced by numerous scientific men xvho have examined il In bo the same in character mid com position. Prof. C. U. Shepard. in his Geological Itcporl of Connecticut, says of ihe Verd Antique Marble: I his precious Marble xxas original lllul" I ly obtained as is supposed from;,,,,,, .i, ', r , ., ri.essalo.iica in Macedonia, or as somo innmlain, Irom Lacedemonium in the Morcu. ai present, uo even , , . . ., , it is only to be met with in small fragments nnd scattered blocks, 1 among the ruins of Romqii nnd Elru- can c. ies, ami so bcarcc uas it oa-, sul cU,, , nd when werQ fa coma that its pr.ee... Pans is th.rly;,., :,. .,. - . lollars tho cubic loot. Its use ItH tun therefore is very limited, and confin ed only to the more cosily articles of furniture. Die Quarries of this iccently dis covered Marble arc located in Itox bury, on tho borders of tho Vermont Central Railroad, nnd within a fexv rods of its track. I rom n statement recently published by the Americiu verd Antique Marble Company, in, - . - i xvhoui these quarries belong, tvei learn that the Company have nearly completed ' large .Mill with ample machiiiery, including u powerful Iin- er marry ngJln j Ha,),,', gi)u refusal ginc. which will bo set at work tlioVVays to walk with any of the un- earliest posible day, preparing for market the large quantity of blocks quarried the past season. - Judging from tho specimens al ready exhibited, their favnrat.le coin panson with the foreign article, to other wnh that peculiar style anil color, xvhicli has nlwuvs recommend ed the Vcrd Antiq ic Marble for orn amental purposes, and tho grenlly reduced price at xvhicli it can noxv be afforded, wu see no reason why this Marble interest may not become the most important and valuable in the Slate. Wo understand the Com pany havo already orders for several thousand dollars xxorth nf the stone tu bo delivered llio coming season j ing an elaborately xvrought chenn Thts interest deserves the ulteiilioii, sette, drapery sleeves trimmed with not only of tho caprtahit, but nf all, xvho aro interested in the rcsourctsnf Vermont, showing, as it does, that beneath the slopes of her green hills, lio buried productions us rnre and beautilul as the sunniest climo can boast. The prejudices formerly existing lo a great extent against American pro ductions simply because American, have always to a greater or less ex tent retarded the developement ofour resources ; but to the credit of a more enlightened appreciation be it said, this feeling is fast passing away, and the prfeerence is now given to an article of equal beauty and value, precisely upon Ihe same grounds that it xvas formerly rejected. The spirit of enterprise, always ono of tho prin cipal elements of American charac ter, has demonstrated in the past few yean, that in all the departments of the useful arts and manufactures, we are not dependent on Europe either for Material or Manufactures, The man who was forcibly ejected from a house in Philadelphia u few years since, for olTerin!; for sale ' black rocks' from the present coal- bearing district of I'ennsylvnui t, tvilli llio presuiiiptuoiii siatfincnt that they xvoulil iiuru ami xverc vniuniio for fire, has been fully nvenged. His " black rocks areburning, and their value everywhere is acknowledged. The past history of our mines of Gold, Silver, I'latiua, Mercury. Iron, Copper, Galena and Coal proves that many of these molals wo nru prob- 'requires no great stretch of imaginn- lion to oeiiuve that the lime is not distant when xvo may export more of these articles than wcarc at present importing. Already have orders been received from Russia nod from Italy that land of marbles, for Marble from Vermont to turnisli tho material for somo of their finest xvorks of art, nud it is said the Czar has an agent aheady hero coiiiiius sinned to make still further purchases from her quarries. If in this brief, disconnected, nud necessarily imperfect enumeration of nine of the principal minerals and quarries of the Slate, xvo but succeei! in helping call attention to the ini porlanco of this subject, nud nxx'aken ing lo somo extent an inlcrcst in n Ge- siillicient lor the operations ol a stn- gle year. Hut ivould it not be inoro likely to accomplish the oliject in a thorough manner, were three thou- sand a year nppropriated for three 'years: This would bo a sufficient amount probably, and gixe ample lime to do the xvork thoroughly, while it would command the best lalent the country affords. We leave the question with those inter- cstcd. M. THE WIDOW'S BEAU. II r MRS. OAIIOLINK SOULR. Serxicc had commenced in the neat little s.inctuary, which the in habitants of F.iiimnut had consecra ted to the worship of God.

In vain sought the good, ihe sound, the eloquent, the handsome Mr. B.lo steal again the attention of hisheir ers. They had eves nud thoughts for nobody but Widow C., and Wid ow C.'s young and dashing looking attendant. How she had cheated them ) Hadn't she said a hundred limes or j more, ihat her heart was in theurave f llir buried one; thatbhe would nrv- appropriated gentlemen of the vill- tgo? Hadn't sho said she didn't feel us if she could xvcar unythin; but mourning? And in spile of ill the protestations hadn't she come tut and, all at once, dressed ull in xvltio, and xvalked into church in broad day light, leaning on the arm of a ymng gentleman ? Yes, indeed she had. Sho xvouln have pleaded guilty to all these charges, crave ones asthev xvere, and lo the last, too, hoxv many witnesses might bo subpoenaed. She was ac tually dressed in white, A beautiful robe of India inul, lucked to the xvaist. xvilh an open coinage, disolav- drapery sleeves trimmed xvilh the richest nf Mechlin l.iee, under- spread. Sho seemed all engrossed sieves of tho same expensive maleri- xvilh tho bird's bill, nnd spoke to no al, a xvhilo crape shaxvl, and xvhite one. Everybody wondered if she had luce hat with orange buds, xvhite I heard what they xvere saying xvhen 1id gloves uud light gaiters; such , she came in, but her placid counlen xvas ihe description every lady had ance soon io assured the most (ear- on her tongue's end to repeat over as soon as services xvere ciosea. And the gentleman he loo was dressed in style. Didn't he xvear xvhite pants i first to do up the matter very delic of the latest pattern, and a white vest, .alely, in so 'round about a nay' the and a coat of satin finish,' and white 'lady should not suspect her of curi kids too? and didn't he sport a mas- 'osity. So she began to praiso Mrs. sivo chain, and didn't ho gaze ofien C 'g dress. ' Why, it is a real and tenderly on the fair creature Tjo- , beauty,' said she ; xvhere did you get side him? Ah, yes, he did so, and lit.' there xvas no room to doubt. Wid ow C. had cheated them. She had ( won a beau, laid aside her mourning, ( put on a bridal attire, and xvas agoing to be married in church. But who tho beau was, or whence ho cams, was more oitiicuit to solve. Service proceeded. The choir sang, the minister prayed and preach- ed the people wondered when the ceremony would take place. But to their utter astonishment they were lefl to xvonder, for xvhen tho bcnc- 1 did think and say so onco, but diction xvas pronounced. Widow C, I have finally changed my mind.' xvilh tho rest of tho congregation, ' You have, Im 1' Hero tho hear xvalkctl quietly mil nf the church. ers nnd tho lookers on winked ex When they reached the pavement, !io prcsiively at each other. olTeretl his hand very gracefully, and ) ' But didn't you spoil your beauti she pl iccd her arm very confidingly ful xvhilo dress Sunday night, xvcar mi ill (i beautiful soft cmtl sleeve, , ing it way up there tu tho burying and (hoy passed on. What a nooning that xvas in Fair mount I What a xvorld of conjec tures, surmises, inrriirics and doubts rolled over in the brains ol not only , gossiping ladict, but sober matter of- gcmiemcn. I no iiko oi such a thing had never occurcd before in the annals of the village. There xvas something new under the sun a la dy hid n beau and nobody knew il. Widow C. ! Didn't your cars, noton Jy on llio right but on tho left, burn ilmttlay? Ah, xvo xvonder they hadn't dropped off surely they must hax'c wen crisp and crimson. Tho Itov. Mr. IJ. preached to a crowded house that afternoon ; no compliment to him though. Tho magnet xvas in the poxv before him. livery one xvas sure that tho xvetl ditig xvoulil lake place then ; but every body xvas sadly disappointed, and if tongues had run at railroad speed before, they traveled then on electric wires. Tho minister might havo preached in Greek that day, and his sermon would havo been quite ns edifying. But one subject engrossed the village mind. Tho widow's beau ihat was the topic. It actually seemed, loo, as though ihe lady tried to make all the talk sho could. After tea, arm in arm, with the hi range gentleman, sho walked Ihe tvholo length of the vil lage and axvay out into the cemetery, aniriievcr returned till the moon xvas high. ' A nice looking dress I guess she had on,' drau led out old grandma W , ns sho listened to the xvidow's wanderings 1 i'm glad I haiiit'got to wash it, ull dabbled up as il must have been but I don't suppose she thought or cared a xvord about it, she's so carried nwny with him. But I'll give hern piece of my mind the first time that I have a chance, bee if I don't. Cheat us ull ihis way.' But the good old dame began lo fear, bj the next Wednesday 'nighl, that she should never have the tie-j sired chace. She hurried through I her xvRshing on .Monday, and hobbled ocr to ihe widow'sns s.oou as possible, and niie of llio neighbors mini, Mrs. C. and the gentleman went of in n car- ri.ige, nobody know where, very early i in ihe morning. ' Yet. i.l nut return until xi-ry l.tle in Ihe evening.' Look out Widow C 1 your character is on the carpet 1 If she knew it, apparently she didn't care, fur the next day she went a sailing with her beau, md no (he next afternoon went xxiih him In the slat. on house, and there not only xvept ns she parted from him but uetinlly embraced and kissed him. 'What, in broad day-light?' ex claimed Grandma W . 'We if I ever feed or heard llio hko on'l.' Little Nell, tho old lady's youngest grandchild, xvondered to herself if it xvere any worst! in broad day light man any other time. I crimps you will xvonder ton. Wo do at leust. There xvas a very large attendance that afternoon at the weekly meeting of the sexving society. Every body xvent that could possibly leave home. And what a chattering there xvns af ter the hustle of assembling xvns over. There xvas but one topic, but that one xvas ull sufficient all engrossing the widow's beau for llio gentleman must be her beau, or at least he ought to be. livery body had something to tell, something to xvonder about. But suddenly every magpie tongue xvas huihed, a universal stroko of numb paly seemed in have fallen on Ihu group, as looking up, they perceived the very laijy about xvliom they xvero conversing so eagerly, standing in the door-xvay. Good afternoon, ladies,' siid she, in her usual quiet way. ' I'm glad 10 see so large and happy a gathering 11 is a beautiful day for our meeting ;' and ihen she proceeded to the table, helping herself to a block of patch I xvork, enquiring for the sewing silk, which having received she sat down in tho only vacant chair, and com menced hemming a very red bird xvilh a yelloxv wing on to a green twig, xvhicli latter had been hemmed on to a qiiare piece ol while cloth. and the whole completed xvas design 1 cd to form a twentieth part of a bed i ful, and every one longed to com- menccn personal aitacK. r i i tir Oid Grandma W- was the I bought it,' xvas tho quiet reply.

She had such-a long lecture to read on extravagance, and she xvas so determined to do it, too, when, un fotiinutely for her eloquent strains, Mrs. C 's dress had hung up in her wardrobe all tho time, and sho had worn nn old black silk. After a time the old lady took a fresh siart. Sho would not bo so baffled again. She would find out all about thai beau before she went home, that she xvoulil. So sho began by saying, 'your company xvent away .1113 llltl lllllff UIUI' f, IIIVJ' i ' They did,' xvas tho nnswer, n xvee bit of emphasis resting on, they?' ' He did'nt stay very long, did he?' ' Not as loin; as I wished ha hud,' xvas the emphatic ansxver this lime. And how tho ladies looked tit each other. It xvas as good as a confess ion. ' When did ho cotno?' ' Saturday evening.' ' Was you looking for him ?' ' I had been expecting him a fort night.' 1 Why, du tell, if you had then, and you never told on'l cither. Had he business in the place ?' 'He had.' . ' What xvas it ?' This xvns rather more direct and blunt than llio old lady meant to put il, nnd sho forth with apologized by saying, ' I didn't mean thai I I only thought that 4 I'd as lief ynu'd knoxv ns not,' said the lady xvilh n charming air of naivete; 'he came to see me.' O, Widow C , didn't your good nntne go down then? Bo care- ful what you say next, or you'll havo only a remnant of character to go home with, ami remnants always go cheap. ' Ho did, did he, and he din't come for nothing else, (hen ? But xvas you ghid lo see him ? 'Indeed I was. It was one nf the happiest moments of my existnnce.' ' Well, well,' said the lady, hardly knowing how to Cranio her nucntions, 'well he's n real "' Ic-oKliig man, anyway.

But what connection is he, then, du tell us now ?' ' Ho is my youngest brother.' if theri' xvas ever rapid progress made in sewing anil knitting by any circle of ladies, it xvas by those com posing this society, for the next fif teen minutes. The Improved Art of War. Among the many nrls xvhicli the conceptions of genius aro constantly combining to perfect and develope, is tho art of xvar. Every succeeding generation seems to introduce among us still more powerful and efficient agencies for accomplishing the de struction of our fellow ii.cn. A cor respondent of the Cincinnati Gazette, writing from England, givesuu inter esting description of u fexv of the xvarhkc engines which il is supposed will contribute materially to the suc cessful termination of hostilities in tho great European struggle xvhicli is probably about to occur. One of tho most terrible of these machines, ho says, is Wagner's float, i g gun xvhicli is simply a longcun grevo gun, do feigned to bo propelled along the surface of the water in a straight line, on the principle of tho rocket, until it strikes the vessel ul which it was directed, xvhen it thrusts into its sides its iron head, containing txvo pounds of fulminating powder of mercury. When fire reaches this reservoir, the powder explodes, blotv ing a hole in tho vessel ten ortxxelvu feet in diameter so laige ihat it can not be closed up by any ordinary method. This machine, says tho writer, has been a long time matur ing in the Woolwich arsenals, and i noxv complotcd.und ready to go forth on is mission of destruction. It can be made available at a distance far beyond the reach of any other gun, and it is thought will be of service in attacking the Russian fleet, when an chored under the unapproachable fortresses of Sebastopol and Cron stadl. The correspondent of the GtMtte also say, that submarine boat have been to perfected that they can at- Iar.li a burner to nn enemy's ship without incurring tho least danger to those xvho manage them. Large numbers nf explosive balls havo been embarked on board the English fleets, nf such a nature as'invariably lo ex plode whenever they strike the side nf on enemy 'a ship, scattering on ev ery side devastation, " death nnd flames. Experiments aro also being undo with an asphyxiating ball, xvhicli does not kill, but paralyzes an entire crew for several hours, or until they are niado prisoners. Txvo small steamboats ore build ing, designed to carry each txvo enor mous Paixhan guns. These vessels arc built in tho strongest manner, with oaken walls near six feet thick, covered with n mattrass of cotton one and a half feet in thickness, and tip's again covered xvilh a sheeting of iron and lead. Tho roof or upper deck is covered in tho same way, so as lo nlloxv tho bombs of tho enemy to glance into tho sea xvithout dam age. They are designed to bo bul let proof, and bomb proof. These ships nre to be sent nt tho proper time into tho midst of tho enemy's fleet, xvhero they will attack tho ves sels nruund them, foro nnd aft, .villi bombs throxvn buixveon xvind nnd xvaler, at the same lime spriiilcimg them xvilh showers of Greek fire. It is believed that one of these little vessels, operated by the labors of a few determined men, might, under favorable circumstances, destroy an entire fleet of ships. Thu English fleet is also largely provided xvith balloons, intended to carry inflammable materials to scat ter over towns, villages and Heels, when the xvind favors such opera tions: and it is said that another in vontion, xvhose results xvill bo still more terrible than any of ihe nbove, but of xvhicli the construction has not yei been uiado known, is also n- bout to be sent out to destroy the tiussians. A Modern Joan of Aro. A curious story is told at this mo ment, of a second Joan of Arc, xvho has appeared in the Turkish army. A girl named Gara, a descendant of Sohmin Pacha, formerly Governor of Apana, nn her xv.iv in Constant! noble. Sho marched at tho head of a corps of regular cnvalry ; many persons tried to pe'suade her lo aban don the strange enterprize; but noth ing shook her courage or resolution to combat the enemies of her country. Some persons iho't to intimidate her tii saving that it she was ueiuimmun to remain in inn army sho mint give a trial of her skill by an nssult at arm. 1 he Oovernor ol Adana, xviio xvns informed of the act, ordered that the young girl should be brought before him, nud he asked her if she still persisted in her resolutions. Sho res ponded in the affirmative, and ndiTcd that she xvould engage xvillingly in the trial nt arms to xvhicli they had said she must submit, provided they xvould give her for nn adversary tho harvest and most vigorous of the 2, 000 cax'aliors of xvhicli the detach ment xvas composed. The combat took place immediately, and after a contest of some tnineutcs, the cava lier chosen for her adversary xvns dis armed by the young girl and declar ed vanquished. The Governor or dered that she should bo regularly enroled, counted hcrdotvn ono thou sand five hundred piasteis, ($75) and gave the rank of office to her brother, who served in an inferior grade.
