IIV 15. 1. WAIT02V, JH. MONTPELIER, MAY 10, 1834. Whig State Convention. Tho Annual Whig Slate Convention of tho Whigi of Vermont, will be held at Uut lahd, on Wednesday, tho 7lli of Juno next, at 11 o'clock, A. M., to nominate candidates for State Officers for tho ensuing political year, and also, to transact such other busi ness as the Convention, when assembled, may deem proper, preparatory to the next annual State Election. e. N. rriggs. GEO. WARDNER, II. I). HARRIS, II. M. HATES, C. H. HAYDEN. May 1st, 1851. Whig Ctnlral Comm. It is worth while to notice that tho Whig Convention will do something besides nominating candidates for State officers. Perhaps all intcrcited can accept the call as a fair warning, and govern themselves ac cordingly. The Nebraska Outrage. The opposition waxca hotter and hotter, In Congress the attempt to stifle discussion has been fitly met and defeated. The North ern whigs in a body, a part of tho Southern whigs,and a part of tho Northern Democrats, stood shoulder to shoulder against me gag or1 ths adminstration, and by dint of constant at tendance day and night, and sharp tactics, they were successful. The final decision of the House is not absolutely certain, but the prospect is gloomy. In the country, the spirit of resistance is growing stronger and Btronger. On the Mth another mass meet ing was holdcn in Now York city, composed of Whigs, (" Silver Grays" at that, some of them,) Democrats and Free Soilcrs. As a specimen ofits spirit wc quoto the following resolutions : 1. Ittsahtd, That we have readied a cri sis that threatens our rights as citizens, and tho stability of our Union when, in order to extend Slavciy over territory which is ours by comparand to aggrandize the Slnvo States at the expense of the Tree plighted faith is trampled in tho dust, and tho kx- Mitssr.n will or Tin- it-oi-lk is over borne in the House, of Representatives by influences unconstitutionally brought to bear, with tho coinnvanco uftho atlinimstra Hon destroying the freedom of our leirisla lion, and thus striking at Hie root ofour lib erties, and subjecting us to an intolerable despotism. 2. Iltsolvtil, That tu thoso members of House, whether from tho North or tho South. who, true to their honor and their oaths, their country and their God, are keeping sleep less watch at their jiosts, in defense of the principles of true democracy, of tho just lights of tho North and our national welfare, wo offer our warmest, our sincerest thanks ; and wo pray them to persevere unto tho end, ami to remember that tho gratitude wo now feci for their tried fidelity, will endear their names and their memories to the hiirhrnind- cd and honorable of their countrymen thro' mi coming nine. !1. Resolved, That for our nqrthern Ro prcsentatives, who, seduced by bribes, bul lied by threats, or deluded by sophistries, nru abetting tho Nebraska conspiracy, and betraying tho mighty interests and destinies entrusted to their keeping, words aio want ing to express our contempt, our scorn, and our most just indignation. That we solemn ly declare that no man who from this hour votes lo repeal Tin; Missouri Commiomise, or, to our knowludgo, aids its repeal, direct ly or indirectly, shall ever receive our votes lor any oflico in the People's, nift. 5. llesolveJ, That in our opinion tho rights of the free States aro in jeopardy from south ern agression and northern treachery, and that inasmuch as union is strength, it be comes tho people of the free States to con f r together at this momentous crisis. That to this end, the citizens of this State, with out distinction of party, who are disposed to maintain the rights and principles of tho North, to stay the extension of slavery to noiv territories to rescue from its control the Federal Government and so far as can bo properly dono to kindly aid the citizens of mo Mouth in peaceably hastening its end, as a system unjust in itself, and unworthy this great Republic, be invited to assemble in Convention at such time and place as tlia General Commttteo shall designate, to deter mine what course patriotism and duty require us to pursue. And that tho citizens of the tree States generally, as also of Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, Ken tucky, Tennessee, and Missouri, who sym pithizo with these views, bo earnestly invit ed to hold Conventions in their several States and to consider tho expediency of a General Convention for tho better protection of the rights of free labor in every section of cur vast country. Tlutwo Whig papers of this Stato that liivo been agitating a project tor a new par ly aru Hacking down down, and aro evi dently ashamed of the imprudent course they wero taking. Tho Watchman now distinctly avows that it does not desire a dis solution of the Whig party, and that it does notscaktho formation of a new one. Tho Middlebury Register had previously made a similar avowal. Hut the logic of these pa pers is less crcdifablo than their disclaimer which wo must charitrbly believe is the result of the fatso position they for once found themselves occupying; and to enable them to get out of it decently, wo are willing to overlook thu manner. The Watchman while it disavows any intention to favor a new party, or a dissolution oftho Wliig par ty, expresses a wish " enlarge its bands." 'l itis reminds us of the lltwton baker, who disc'uimed any intention of raising the prico of bread. The price per loaf was to be pre cisely what it had been ho wa only going It make the hares a little smaller. Jlut a truce to all this. The Whigs of Vermont ai soon to asssmble in State Con vention, as may be seen by reference to a notice at tho head of thu column. There is but one sentiment among tho whig of Ver mont in regard to the Nebraska question, or the extension of slavery. It is doing them gross Injustice to doubt this for a moment. The Wings of this good old Green Moun tain State must, and we doubt not will, pre sent an unbroken front, not only in the State Convention, but throughout the approaching campaign. If wo do this, success is cer tain. h'indsor Journal, We have u backed down" from no position we had taken, and undergone no change of views or purpose.

Not many days sinco a gentleman, who has had somo experience by way of educa ting others as well as being educated, re marked that thu old " English Reader" was a very excellent book almost a classic but for that very reason he held that it was a bad school book. Soiriug fur above tho comprehension of youthful readers, it serv ed tu fix a mechanical habit of reading, ex pressing neither the sense nor tho spirit of the language read ; and thus defeated tho main purpose of learning to read at all. The book before us remedies this defect by an a bundance of explanations, and thus serves to bring up the scholar to tho level of his teacher. A friend, to whom wo handed tho book for examination, remarks that the au llior has adopted some of Webster's bad rules as well as his good ones; but wo do not attach much importanco to the objection..

On Saturday after noon a serious accident occurred on tho Northern road in the town of Bedford, near Manchester, N. 11. Tho facts as we learn them were-, as follows. A freight tram run ning north broke some of her machinery and was unable to move. To avoid this, tho pas senger train running north, switched on to the other track at the nearest Malum south of llietii and come on at full sjtecd. In pass ing a curve they camo in collision Willi a heavy freight tram, demolishing both en gines, four freight cars, and two baggage cars and their contents. Ono man named Rollins, baggage master, was instantly kill ed. Tho engineers and firemen all jumped from tho trains. It was said by thoso pre sent to bo one of the most complete wrecks of cars and engines over known in New England. It is ery fortunate that no pass engers were injured. It appears to have been tho result of sheer carelessness, aa the track on which they met belonged to the freight, and the passenger train was of course in fault fur running there. Grrtn .Ml. Herald.

When the brother of tho boy heard of the j punishment, he went to a pistol vender, and oueht two revolvers, and had them loaded and made ready for immediate use.
