name of every Freeman in the Statu of VER
MONT, inscribed upon its ample folds.
Should this measure be adopted, or should it
not, there is no doubt but the other free States of
the Union will take efl'ectual measures to gain an
expression of public sentiment, which will Cause
the projectors of the vile scheme to quail and
tremble under the pressure of the mighty load of
the indignation of incensed FREEMEN.
1 give but an individual opinion. Should any
other or belter measure bo proposed, it shall be
most cheerfully approved by me. I have consult
ed no one on the subject; but that something
should be done, is apparent it must he so to every
one if we wish to preserve the Union of the States,
even for a short period.
Let this unholy alliance be accomplished and
the bonis which hold the several States in union,
will become weaker than was the cord around the
limbs of Samson. The last electioneering for a
President of the present " United States of Amer
ica," will be performed before the close of the
present year.
I hope to see something published in each of the
political papers in Montpelicr next week, upon
this suhject:und likewise in every political und re
ligious paper in the State. Let the motto be Un
ionand the determination, Resistance! Resist
ance!! Resistance!!! " Peaceably if we can,
Forcibly if we must.1'
With ardent desires for the PEACE and happi
ness of our common country,

Affectionately Yours.

Of Three Evils chose llic Least,
Mri Editor: The sentiment we so often hear
advanced, that 'of two evils we must choose the
least,' is undoubtedly correct as it relates to natu
ral evils; but the simple fact that moral evil is sin,
makes it sin to choose a moral evil; and as our
Rev. Father Bailey has shown from the Word of
God, we arc to shun the very appearance of every
moral evil. I should think nothing more need be
said on the subject, did I not hear men of informa
tion and respectability advocating the doctrine,
ard even our beloved pastor, I understand, still
thinks it his duty to support Henry Clay, on the
principle that ot two evils he must choose the least.
An evil to support Henry Clay for President ! I
rejoice that the Rev. gentleman is willing to admit
that it is an evil. But why is it an evil? is it be
cause supporting a man pledged to slavery, is in
effect supporting slavery ? Then surely it must be
n moral evil. And is Van Buren more attached to
slavery would it be a greater moral evil to vote
for-him, even? But is there no alternative? Is
there no man in this whole nation, who stands in
principle and practice opposed to this evil? Is
there not even now a candidate before the people,
one who has cleared his skirts from this sin one
who, for aught that has yet appeared, is worthy
the confidence of the public? Butsupposing, con
trary to the fact, that in all other respects he is not
equal to Henry Clay is it a moral evil to vote for
him? if an evil at all, is it more thana nafuraevil,
which jvc suffer in voting for any imperfect man?
Then sorely the principle, that of two evils we
must choose the least, would oblige us to choose
the natuial evil instead of the moral, and conse
quently of the three evils to choose the least. But
who that has the fear of Cod before his eyes,
would dare choose a moral evil instead of a natu
ral evil? Better suffer natural evils all our davs.
and go down to the grave in consequence. But
here again we are met with a popular argument :
If I vote for Bimcy, I only throw away my vote,
and leave Van Buicu to receive the election; con
sequently I am obliged to take my choice of the
two." True, you may, and probably will, have to
take up with one of the two1 evils but do you
choose it, and arc you responsible for it? Was Jo
seph responsible for the evils he was obliged to en
dure in consequence of refusing to comply with
the wishes of his wicked mistress? And had he
chosen that moral evil, would he have become a
father to Pharaoh, and a preserver of his own peo
ple? Was Mordeoai responsible for the decreed
destruction of his people, in consequence of bis re
fusing to idolize that wicked Hainan? And was
David chargeable with all the evils he endured in
consequence of not cutting off Saul's head instead
of his skirt? And is the man w ho votes for an ab
olitionist chargnble in any sense with supporting
slavery in so doing? Or may w:e vote for the sup
port of slavery, even with a good object in view;
that is, do evil that good may come? What says
Paul? ''And not rather, as we be slanderously
reported, and as some affirm that we say, let us do
evil that good may come, whose damnation is just."
But 1 have treated the objection as though it was
indeed the fact, as our whig friends would have us
Relieve, that in voting for Birney we throw away
our votes, and leave slavery to triumph in conse
quence. But such is not the ftict. True, it may
leave the Democrats to triumph, but as it respects
slavery it is all the same. I know no difference
between democratic slavery and whig slavery, and
I presume the slave has never found any differ
ence. The question is (the 'one idea') Liberty or
Slavery; Righteousness or Sin; and upon this one
idea we must act, and stand acquitted or condemn
ed before God. Moral Suasion
Orleans County, March, 1844.
the Court decide the law unconstitutional, as they
ought to do, the loan and his family will lie saved
from ruin, a victory against the slave power gain
ed, and the free States delivered from the degrad
ing position which, as sovereign States, they now
occupy: hunting ground for slavecatchers, and
utterly unable to protect their own citizens when
a fiend from the south pounces upon them. The
sum asked from Vermont is only two hundred
dollars about two cents to every voter. Two
cents to each man in Vermont, who claims all the
rights which the slave power has left, to make
one effort to break the chain. And yet the busi
ness lingers. Has the spirit of the Green Moun
tain Boys evaporated to such milk and Water wish
wash? Away with such meanness such love of
mammon! Count out your cents ten, twenty,
fifty, or a hundred. Let every man whoso heart
is worth a cent irive his cent. And where bis soul
is too small to make such a sacrifice, let bis wife
or daughter do what he should have done with
pleasure. In every school district some man may
be trusted to take the money and forward it to
Rev. Mr. Aspenwallj and every son and daughter
of Vermont should come forward cheerfully and
give their mite. No delay should be indulged.
The king's business requires haste. Is it not bet
ter to get rid of this outrageous law by a judicial
decision, if it can be obtained, than to resist it by
violence, oruubmit to it like white slaves?

For the Green Mountain Freeman.
Sometime in October last, a man named
Johnson, anil cullinif himself a regular agent
the New England AVashingtonian Temperance
Society, showing a letter from the President of
the same, also a letter of recommendation from
Judge Collanier, came and lectured on temper
ance in this place and vicinity, and gave very gen
eral satisfaction. After his lectures, he presented
a plan which he said had been agreed upon by
the Society, of publishing a work on temperance
once in two months; price twenty-five cents for
each number; and whenever they paid him for 12
Nos. in advance, another lecturer was to come in
two months and give a lecture and present the
books. He received from IZ to 70 subscribers in
a place and the pay. Since then we have heard
nolhiiir from him or any one else. The cause of
temperance is suffering in consequence of this.
Will some one give us information ? lie was of
Irish descent, had a lame hand which he said was
the consequence of his father's drunkenness. Ho

Later from Europe.
Bv the Caledonian, which arrived at Boston on
Friday, Liverpool dates to March 2th are receiv
ed. The Irish trials were brought to a close at the
end of 25 days, and oneli of the Traversers has
been found guilty of the charge preferred against
him bv the jrovernment, but as yet the country is
ignorant as to the mode or extent of punishment
to be awarded sentences being deferred till next
term. In the mean time a thousand rumours and
speculations aro hazarded, as to what effect the
trial will have upon the condition of Ireland, and
future movement of the repealers.
In the mean time Mr. O'Connell has, on behalf
of his companions, protested against the verdict,
and has intimated that so soon as sentence shall
have been passed, he will have the matter subject
ed to the whole body of Judges in Ireland, and
that, if their decision should be unfavorable, he
will appeal to tha House of Lords, before ho will
A Liverpool paper says:
" In our opinion, no punishment will be inflict
ed and particularly if matters should progress as
quietly as they have done since the conclusion of
the trials for the whole country, which was in a
state of the utmost excitement before, is now as
calm as an unruffled lake."
O Council has taken his seat in the House of
The repeal associations continues to hold week
ly meetings. At the meeting on the 19th ul t. ,
Mr. VV. S. O'Brien, M. P. proposed a petition to
Partiainenr, setting forth the facts connected with
the late Slate trials, for general adoption. The
motion was carried uiiMiiiiiinisly. und nr.
dered that copies should lie sent to every parish in
Ireland lor signature. Another measure adopted
was the severance of all connexion between the
Association ami Arbitration Courts, and a recom
mendation to settle among thcm-elvcs the disputes
and differences by arbitrators, to be in each case
chosen by the parties themselves, without refer
ence whatsoever to the repeal association.
British Parliament slate of Ireland. On the
18th ult., Lord John Russell brought forward his
promised motion in refeiencc to Ireland. He
moved for a committee of the whole House to
take into consideration the state of Ireland. The
discussion of this motion wholly occupied the at
tention of the House of Commons for nine nights,
and ihe result was, that it was lost by a vote of
225 for, and 324 against giving ministers a ma
jority of G9 votes.

Death or a Drunkard. Tho SalemfO.lVil-
lago Register furnishes us with the particulars of
a deatli wlncli occurred in JNew Lisbon, a town in
the vicinity, on the 10th inst. There was a fox
hunt on that day, at which liquor had been freely
used, isecoining too much intoxicated to con
tinue the hunt, the poor wretch lay for some hours
on the cold ground, attended only "by his son, a lad
about twelve years old, who, on finding himself
unable to get his drunken father away, went home
and informed his mother of the circumstances.
Still hoping he would return, she did not send after
him night came on, and he was accidentally dis
covered by a neighbour who carried him to a house
near by, where he expired in a few hours. His
body was brought to town, and for some cause ex
hibited at a grocery. The effect upon his wife is
said to have been horrifying and heart-rending.
The next morning tho grocer who had sold the
man liquor; brought out the remainder of his stock
and burned it, having first signed the pledge. His
example was followed by another sro cer. At tl.J
funeral the pledge was laid upon the dead man's
colli n, & seventy-one persons signed it on the snot
A collection of eighty dollars was then made for
tho widow, ill ry ol which were contributed by the
grocer who had sold the liquor to the deceased.

Mr. Lysander Spooner, of New York, and hi
agents in various parts of the country, has been

U. S. District Court, in session in Baltimore,
Judge Heath presiding, against Mr. Spooner's a

laws. The suit was decided against Mr. Spooner,
and lie was lined lilty dollars.
The exports from New Haven to thcWest Indies,
in 1842, amounted, says the New Haven Palldium,
to $403,863; and in 1843, to $514,661.

We do not know a single democratic paper that
has republished or noticed the very eloquent
speech ol Cassius M. Clay on the sub p;ct ot 1 ex
its and slavery. So much for democratic sympa
thy tor humanity. One or two Whiff papers have
republished it, we believe. The Boston Courier
published it as an advertisement, for pay, and pre
faced it with certain disparaging remarks tin
mingled with a word of sympathy.
We confess we are deeply grieved at such con
duct. Willingly would we forego all the ndvan
logeii to be derived by the Liberty party from this
colli blooded policy, tor the sake of seeing a bet
tcr leeiing among our countrymen. Is it not re
ally a duty, when we see a noble southerner stand
up and beard the lion in hi den, to sneak kind
words to him, and assure him of our sympathy?
Or have we fallen so low, that we must cower in
silence beneath the Irown ot the haughty oligar
chy, whose vengeance he fearlessly brands wheie
it lias the power to work its will? Philanthropist.
A Joke. The New London Gazette says, "when
we approve ot and support llenrv Ulav for the
Presidency, we feel that we are exerting what
little influence we have in the cause of freedom
in the cause of equal rights," Stc. This is cool.
Henry Clay has declared that slavery is sanctified
by legislation, and that lie would sooner sutler the
tortures of the inquisition than sign a bill for the
abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia!-

The Van Zandt Case.
Mr. Editor; I ain glad the Van Zandt case is
again before tho public. There should be no de
lay. Even now the money may be needed. Is
there a Vcrmonter who has the soul of a man that
would not give fifty cents or a dollar in such a
cause? Such a man should be ashamed to look
himself in the face. A citizen of America, for
doing an act of humanity, seized under our 6lave
catching law, which extends its bloody fangs over
Vermont, as well as Ohio,, calls upon us to help
him in defending his rights before the Supreme
jCourt of the nation. Jf a fair trial can b had and
From the Albany Patriot.
Very Important. After having placed into
the hands of our compositor more than.enough to
fill our paper we received a package from our val
ued correspondent, Charles T. Tor re y. We
lay aside some articles of interest to make room
lor the lollowing ol greater interest :
In many parts id' the South our cause is assu
ming a bold and decided attitude.
In Delaware a Convention met last week, and
made arrangements for efficient action against the
remnants of slavery in that State men are em
barked in it who will never sleep nor tire.
"In Maryland it is highly probable that a simi
lar movement will be made, before summer. The
Baltimore Saturday Visitor (a large, and well es
tablish literary paper, $2,00 a year, which many
of our wealthy abolitionists ought to take) may be
deemed the organ of Maryland and Virginia abo
litionism. It is as decided an abolition paper as
the Patriot. And what is better, I have good au
thority for saying that its course meets the appro
bation of most of its large circle ot subscribers in
cluding many slaveholders.
In Viiginia, in five or six counties, quite distant
from each other, there will be a good number of
votes for Birnf.v and Morris; and Abolitionism
may be considered as organised for future and effi
cient action.
In Kentucky, the movement . freedom is dai
ly assuming a more and more decided character.
Cassius M. Clay, whose name will soon be
found worthy to be associated with that of the hon
ored James G. Birney, is not without a host of
ardent friends and co-laborers.
There are not wanting indications of effort in
Missouri, Tennessee, Louisiana, Florida, and
North Carolina. A large slaveholder in Wake
county has recently decided to emancipate his
slaves, from a conviction of the sinfulness of the
relation bo held to them.
A female of the Society of Friends has been
preaching somewhat extensively in this State a
gainst slavery, within a few months past, and has
oeen well received, and done much good.
In n word, we may consider the antislavery
movement as having assumed an organized form
in five of the slave States, and as rapidly approach
ing the same position in at least four more. Day

From Washington.
Mr. Calhoun was expected at Washington on
Thursday last, to accept the office of Secretary of
It seems to he generally understood that
he will accept with especial reference to the Ore
gon and Texas questions, and with the intention
of retiring when they shall have been disposed of.
In regard to Texas, Mr. Calhoun is understood
to be in favor of annexation; and it is still gener
ally agreed that a treaty for that end is nearly com
pleted. On the question whether the Senate will
ratify it, opinions are contradictory.
No longer ago than last year, Mr. Calhoun ex
pressed himself in decided tonus against any move
mcnt to obtain exclusivtV'iosscssion of Oregon at
present. Time, he said, was doing the work for
us; and to time we had better leave it.
On Thursday last, in the Senate, the Oregon
question came up, and Mr. Sevier of Arkansas
spoke sometime in favor of the resolution for giv
ing immediate notice to Great Britain that the ar
rangement for the joint occupation of Oregon
should now end. After some explanation by Mr.
Archer, the vote was taken on the resolve to give
notice, which was rejected, 18 to 28.
The New Tariff. Many remonstrances against
the proposed new tariff come in from Man laud
and Pennsylvania. In the Pennsylvania House of
Representatives resolutions have been adopted,
unanimously, instructing the Senators from that
State to vote against the proposed change. They
also passed the senate and have been received at
Washington. The tone of the press is more ad
verse to tho probability of any change, than last
Amendment of the Constitution. On Thursday,
in the House of Representatives, Mr. Droingoole,
from the Select Committee to whom were referred
the' Virginia and Alabama resolution, in answer to
those of Massachusetts, praying an amendment of
the Constitution upon the subject of slave repre
sentation andd.irect taxation, reported tho follow
ing resolutions:
. First, That the rule for direct taxation and slave
representation in the Constitution resulted in com
promises and concessions, nnrl ought to be held
sacred by the friends of the Union.
Resolved, That no such proposition ought to be
recommended by Congress, and that it should be
promptly and decidedly condemned.
Accompanying the resolutions was u brief report
declaring that the committee had maturely consid
ered the subject, and that the object desired by the
Massachusetts legislature would lead to a peacea
ble or violent dissolution of the Union, nnd that
efforts to procure such an amendment ought to be
Mr. Droingoole said he desired no debate on the
Resolutions, and moved the previous question.
Mr. Adams rose and a-k''d the member from
Virginia to withdraw his motion. He desired to
have the report referred to the committee of the
Whole and made the special order of Monday.
Mr. Droingoole declined to withdraw his mo
tion. The previous question was then seconded.
Mr. Winthrop called for the yeas and nays up
on the main question, which were ordered. The
main question was sustained yeas 153, nays 53.
Mr. Parmenter of Massachusetts declared that
so grave a question ought not to be disposed of so
summarily, and he thcrcfuro moved to lay the
whole subject on the table. The motion was re
jected by yeas and nays, by a vote of 127 to 41.
Maternal Tenderness. A sparrow which had
built her nest on a thatch roof of a house, was ob
served to continue her visits long after the time
when the young birds had taken their flight. This
unusual circumstance continued throughout the
year; St, in the winter the gentleman who all along
h ad observed her, determined on investigating the
cause. He therefore rnnutftcd aladder, mid found
one of the young ones detained as a prisoner by
means of the worsted, which formed a part of the
nest, having necidently twisted round it.-, leg. Be
ing thus incapacitated from procuring its own sub
sistence, it bad been fed and sustained by the con-;
ti u u it I exertions of its mother. If this be no more
than instinct, what is reason? Raleigh Star.

Jljfray The Nashville Whig of the 5th says:
'we had another 'shooting match' in this city on
the night of Thursday last, between two young
men, in which one was badly wounded, and the
other slightly. Such scenes are much too frequent
in this city to suffer them to pass without setting
upon them the seal of condemnation. Unless
some effectual means be adopted to check such oc
currences, our city will 'get a had name abroad.'
Very good comments, on the murderous affray :
but they come with an ill grace from a paper
which would place at the head ot this nation a
man, whose infamous notoriety as a duellist enti
tles him to stand in the front rank of these desper
ate characters. Is this the way the editor would
put his 'seal of condemnation' upon this murder
ously barbarous practice? Are these tho 'effect
ual means' he would adopt to 'check such occur
rences,' and to render ihein less 'frequent'? If they
are, he and his consistent party should hold the
patent right for this wonderful discovery in the
mode of amending national morals Liberator.
Fatal Duel. A fatal duel was fought on the 29th
ult. at Vicksburg, Miss., between Mr. Hainmet,
editor of the Vicksburg Whig, (ami brother of the
member of Congress from Mississippi,) and Mr.
Ryan, editor of the Sentinel. They fought with
pistols, and at the usual distance. At the fourth
fire, Mr. Ryan fell, mortally wounded, being shot
directly through the lungs. He died within ten
minutes. The same parties had met, before and
exchanged shots with rifles. The difficulty was then
arranged upon the ground. Mr Ryan was the suc
cessor of Dr. Hagan in the editorial chair, who
was killed within the last year.
Shocking Murder. The Natchez Courier of
tho 29ih ult. gives the following particulars of a
dreadful murder recently perpetrated in Louisiana;
A Miss Dcmoss was killed about the 15th ult.
near Minden, Clairborno parish, La. She left the
house of a neighbor in the evening, to return to
the house of her father, a respectable planter, but
not arriving, a search was commenced, and a
young man, by name Lambwright, was met in the
woods. Upon the searchers proposing to go up a
certain branch, he stated that it was no use, he had
been there, hunting, Slc. They did go, however,
and found her dead. She had been violated, se
verely beaten, and then her head was held under
the w ater to finish the work of death.
