A Compliment for Vermont.
A member of the House addressed me thus : " Can I buy a hundred acre farm in Vermont, divided about equally between wood, pasture and meadow laud? I wish to emigrate to Vermont because she is the only Slate in whfch the people Imve dem onstrated that tieg have the power of self government." Of course the allusion was to the fact, that from 1777 to 1791 Ver mont existed and flourished as a free, sovereign and independent State acknowl edging allegiance to no other power. Ver mont to-day I am sure is quite as able to be free and independent as any other State. She owes less to the Union, or derives less from it, than any other State, while in proportion to her population she makes the largest and most valuable con tributions to the Union. Consuming as much, because living as well as any other State, she contributes her full share to the revenue of the country ; and beyond that, she contributes more literally than any other State in tho intelligent, ener getic and virtuous men and women who emigrate to other States. Vermont ought rather to receive than to concede in any new terms of Union. Cor. Vermont Watchman. .. i Washington.' Dec. 24, 18G0. Great exertions arc being made to shield Secre tary Floyd from complicity in the abstrac tion of the bonds. The facts Bhow that he has awarded contracts to a large amount to Russell, Major & Waddell, of the over land mail route, and has of late certified pay warrants for their services. Ilusscll went to Bailey, who married Floyd's niece, and said the drafts would be pro tested and Floyd dishonored, whereupon Bailey entrusted him with the bonds. It now appears that not only the bonds are lust, but the amount of Floyd's accept ances. The Republican members of the House Committee held a prolonged caucus to-day. There was an evident disposition to con ciliate the South, without abandoning the Chicago platform, by admitting New Mex ico, if she desires to come into the Union, as a slave Stake, and adopting Seward's proposition in the Senate Committee to protect slavery where it now exists. John A. Andrews, Governor elect of Massachusetts, had an interview with General Scott to-day. General Scott is apprehensive that the forts at Charleston will be taken by the authorities of South Carolina. Washington, Dec 24. It is discovered that several Government officials of high standing are connected with the great robbery of the Indian Bureau Bonds. Their names had not yet transpired. It appears upon investigation that the Bonds were stolen to borrow money for tho use of the Central Breckinridge Club, during the late Presidential election, and the crisis in monetary affairs has prevented the return of the bonds before the usual time to use them for their legitimate pur poses. The robbery amounts to nearly a million of dollars. Maryland. The population of Mary land is 731,232, of which number 135, 282, are slaves. This shows an increase in the total population since 1850 of 148, 351. There has been a decrease of 4,986 in the number of slaves. Secession Bonnets. One of the host of newspaper correspondents at Charles ton, S. C, writes that the Southern ladies have invented a secession bonnet. ' The materials are of Georgia wool, very tast ily combined, a ruche of black cloth rolled and tipped with gold braid and a palmetto embroidered in gold on the ends of the strings. Starving thh North. A friend, in whose word wo have the fullest confidence, informs us that a large provision merchant of this city, who had long been known as a strong advocate of Southern rights, re ceived about ten days ago an order for about fifty barrels of flour, with a lot of pork, fish, &c.r to go to Charleston. Owing to the gloomy aspect of afl'aira the merchant first hesitated and then decided not to fill the order, He accordingly replied that he preferred to extend no credit to South Car olina for tho present. ' In a few days an answer was received in this city, declar ing that ho might keep his flour, fish, pork, Sui., to himself j that South Carolina would have no more of them, having made up her mind to starve the North into submis sion! N. T. Com. Adv. OT We learn that the enterprising cit izens of Newbury village and vicinity arc making exertions fur the erection of a Town Hall , in that village. A Levee ig to come off next Tuesday evening, and we understand that the proceeds aro to be devoted, to that object. : , Secession of South Carolina. On Thursday last, the Convention pas sed the Ordinance bilk seceding from the Union. Tho news spread rapidly and there was great cheering and much excite ment That immense State has passed just Buch an Ordinance once before, in 1832. On the 21st the Convention had some discussion relative to laws to collect the revenue, Postal arrangements, a Tar riff, &o. It was ascertained that the Custom House did not pay its expenses, and the Tost Office of the State cost .the Government 240,000, while the receipts are less than 50,000. Possibly she can make up this deficit by having letter postage ten cents. The Legislature changed the name of Federal Relations to Foreign Relations. A committee was ap pointed to fix the style of the State Flag. Congress. On the 24th a communica tion was received by tho House from the Secretary of the Interior, giving" informa tion of a defalcation amounting to $870, 000 in the Indian Trust Fund. The Secretary wishes for a full investigation, to vindicate his own honor. A select committee of five, with full powers, was appointed. Military Levee. On the evening of the 8th day of January, 1861, the anni versary of the Battle of New Orleans, the Bradford Guards, in connection with the Bradford Brass Band, arc to give a Levee at the Vermont House. Telegraph. Patents. The following patents were issued from the United States Patent Office, on December 18, 18G0, each bearing that date. E. F. M. Fletcher of Georgia Hains, Vt., for improvement in water wheels. Jedediah Holcorabof Brandon, Vt., for improvement in platform scales. Smith A. Skinner of West Berkshire, Vt. for improvement in fountain pens. Rogue Caught. Qn Monday night of last week a fellow by tho name of Har rison Grace was arrested in Hincsburgh for theft, and bound for trial in $300. He had for some time been making indis criminate plunder, using horses and wagons which he had stolen. He had with him a girl, of 14 or 15 years, a sister of his wife, who lives with her four children over the Lake. The girl asserts Grace under compulsion. Grace is an old offen der, but just out of Dunncmora, (N. Y.) Prison, and is the samo who robbed the express wagon of Mr. Boynton of Hincs burgh, some two months ago. Burling ton times. The Census. I learn (indirectly) from the Superintendent of the census, that in the new appointment of Members of Congress, under the census of 18G0, Vermont will bo entitled to three members one saved on a fraction. Tho free States gain seven members, which are lost, of course, to tho slave states. The causo of secession is not slavery, nor Lin coin's election, but the census". So it was in 1 850 ; and in 1 860 it is only something more so. The South does not like to be in a minority in the government. Cor. Vermont Watchman. iJiT The citizens of Bennington have contributed $50,75 for the suffering in Kansas, and the amount forwarded to the Treasurer and Secretary of the " Kansas Relief Committee." . . ' White Gunpowdeii. A letter from Lon don says ; " I have heard in the city of a curious invention, which concerns alike sportsman, rifleman, and the scientific. It is the manufacture of ' white ' gunpowder. It is made no mystery of, being composed of yellow potassa, chlorido of potassium, loaf sugar, crystalizcd sugrr and brimstone. It possesses superior qualities over the black powder, being quick and more pow erful in its action, and not fouling the gun, For tho delicate in the olfactory nerves, it may be added that it is without unpleas ant smell It has just been patented." C" Tho London Times editorially ccn surcs the attitude of South Carolina, but admits that the Southerners have some cause on their side for demanding the right of free trade. . ,.'

Tug North Atlantic Telegraph Ex pedition. The London Timet furnishes a report of tho expedition sent from Eng land to test tho practicability of laying a submarine telegraph line across the Atlan tic by way of Iceland, Greenland and Labrador. Tho results of this expedition are considered on tho whole eminently satisfactory. : ; , CT From tho St. Albans Messenger, we learn that a very severe accident hap pened in that village on Tuesday after noon of last week. A pair of horses took flight, and ran through the streets at a furious rate, knocking down a Mrs.' John Miles of Fairfield, and a Mrs. Colton. Mrs. Fields was very seriously and dan gerously hurt Her face was badly smash ed by the foQt of the horse, and she was otherwise internally injured. It is thought however, that she will recover. Miss Colton was uninjured. fJSPThe people of St Johnsbury are having fine skating on Mr. Butler's pond.

A Mr. Constantino, converted un der the preaching of American missiona ries in Greece, came to this country when seventeen years old, friendless and alone, and unable to speak a word of the English language After much suffering and hard ship he overcame the great obstacles which confronted him, acquired our language, pursued a course of four years at Amherst College, and is now in the middle class of Andovcr Theological Seminary. On Sab bath evening he gave our people an insight into the religious character of the Greeks, and the obstacles in the way of their con- version to the Protestant faith, together with a little personal history. On Tuesday evening he lectured upon tho physical condition, of that country, climate and products, and the social and intellectual character of the people. 6 The people of St Johnsbury are to have a series of promenade concerts by the St. Johnsbury Cornet Band, the first of which will come off on Friday eve of this week, in the Town Hall. tpT The schooner Sarah Ellen, owned by Messrs Jas. Mouse & Brothers, of Burlington, and engaged in freighting stone from the AVillsborough quarries, for tho new Dock of the Vermont Central Railroad, near their Freight Depot, foun dered, yesterday morning, about half a mile southeast of the Four Brothers, and sunk.
