A VERMONT OAT CROP.
Mr. Tkacy. I noiiced in your paper an
account of Gov. Hill's oat crop this season ;
and if any man had produccd morc, hc was
invitcd to communicate the fact.
I will give 3'ou a brief statement of my oat
crop, on thc samu numbcrof acrcs, (fpur.)
As hc gavc his raanner of cultivation, I will
give mine, as thcy difier in some rcspccts.
Onr lando wcre undcr about cqual state of
cultivation, to bcgin with. In the season of
1S39 my land was plowed up in the sward.
In the tnonth of May, 1840, it was plowcd and
thoroughly harrowed ; thcn twcnty loads of1
good manurc were sprcatl to thc acrc, and all
plowcd in to thc dcbth of four inchcs, and har
rowed down smooth. Thcn the four acrcs
wcre plantcd to potatocs ; and I harvcstcd
n'mo lmndrcd and scvcnty-scvcn bushcls from
Ihe lot. In the spring of 1841 tho land was
plowcd oncc, and I sowcd sixtccn hushcls of
oats upon the four acrcs Thc oats stood up
lemarkably wcll ; but few lodgcd ; and I think
the cansc was, that we had no rain to litnbcr
or burthcn thc s'.alk aftcr thc oats bcgan to
fill. Thc piecc was reaped, and thc oats
bounu in very large bundlcs, so largc that it
wns diflicult in many insfanccs to stook twclve
Imnules in a stook. I had thcm stookcd in
that manncr for Ihe purpose ofcounting ccr
rectly; and tho result was fivo hundrcd and
cighty-cight s.iocks, of twclve bundles to the
slouk. If New Hampshii c has beat Vermont
on oats this year, lct us know it, and we will
try theiu next season.

tervals of tcn ycars cach, sincc tho adoption of
the Constitution. The investigations show
some curious facts :
1. Thc population of the United States in
crcases exactly 34 per ccnt. cach tcn ycars,
and doubles every twcnty-four years. This
law is so uniform, and pcrmanent, that when
applicd to the population of 1790, and brought
down to the present time, it produces nearly
thc very result shown by the census of 1640.
And tluu we may tell with great accuracy
what will bo the census of 1S50. It will be
nearly twenly-threc millions.
2. But though this is the aggrcgatc result,
it is by no means true of cach particular part
ofihe country ; for New England incrcascs at
thc ratc of 15 per cent. cach ten years, whilo
thc North Westcrn States increase 100 per
cent. in that period.
3. The slavo population incrcased at 30
per ccnt., but sincc, at lcss than 25 per ccnt.
The frce nonulation have. however, incrcased
at thc rate of 30 per ccnt. At this rate thcre
fore, the dinerence betwcen the frce and slavo
population is constantly incrcasing.
4. Another fact is, that the colored popula

on foot, thc cxilcd prince wandcred amidst the
mountainous rcgionsof the Alps, and without

at last co.npcllcd, under a feigncd namc, to
dcvotc himsclf to tcaching for his support, and
for cight months he pcrformcd thc dutics of a
professor in tho collcgc of Richenau, instruc
ting daily in history, mathematics, and the
Frcnch and English languages. This feature
in his history, strikingly excmplifies the forcc
and dccision of his characler. Satisficd that
his mother and sistcr had found placcs of safc
ty, he trusted to his own cncrgies; and, sfrong
in thc resources of his mind, he threw himself
upon thcm, and the youth of 21, thc" Licut.
Goneral in thc Frcnch Army, a prince of the
royal house of Bourbon, dcponucd on his early
cducation for his daily support. It shows how
thorough had been tho cducation, and how
wcll hc had improved his opportunitics, that
when he quitted Richenau, he received the
most honorablc tcstimonials of his learning &
ability. Thc change was great, but his strong
mind was equal to thc vicissitudcs. His fath

of his dcceased parent, and sought refuge in
the North of Europc. Aftcr a variety of ad
ventures, intercsting, dangerous, and romantic
in the cxtreme, he received from his mother a
letter, urging him m the most touching man-
infuriated Francc by hastening to Amcrica. I
This was the onlypricc at which could be)
purchased the liberty of his mother and broth
ers. who were conhned m the pnson of Mar
scilles; and though it deranged all his plans,
ond threw him cntirely out of tho circle of
European pohtics, and thrce thousand miles
from his country, he hesitated not to comply
wiih her request, and, disguising himself as a
Dane, he sailed Septembcr 24, 1796, from
Hamburg in the ship America, Capt. Ewing,
for Philadelphia. This was the darkcst period
of his lifc. His distracted country his abus
cd mother his persecutcd family his mur
dcred father wcre behind him; and unknown
land untried friends dcsolate solitude, and
threatened indigence before him. Treated by
the captain as a runaway West India gamblec,
employed by a passenger as an mterprcter, &
tossed about upon the sea of waters and the
sea of troubles, he bore up against all with a
manliness that showcd the flrmncss of his mind
and the energy of his naturc.

Mr. Dillingham opposed the adoption ofthe
resolution on the ground that thc constitution of
this state confined tlie meligibility to the fact of
thc bcnator s r.olding tho othce of postmaster
at the time of his clcction to tho Senate ; and
that ihereforo the report of thc comniittco and
tho resolution were based upon an crroneous
principlp. For the purpose of testing the voice
of thc Senate upon this single question, ho
moved the iiidefinite postponement ofthe reso
lution. Afier rcmarks of Mr. Clark, Mr. D.
witbdrew his motion, and tho question being
upon the passnoe ot the rcsolution, Mr. IJil
lingham continued his rcmarks, contending that
Mr. Aikcn was not disquahhcd from holding
his seat in the Senate, evcn from the facts as
reported by lhe committco on elections. The
te.itimony before tlio committee was matcrially
(lclcctivc, mcrc licarsay, and inadmissiblo by
tho rules of testimony.
Mr. Dana would confinc thc question to the
fact whelher Mr. Aikcn did or did not hold tlie
office of postmastcr on tho day of tho com.
mcncement of tlio present session of tho legis
lature. Tlie facts reported by tho commilleo
of elections wcre, ot least to his mind, fully
strong cvidenco of iho fact that he was. There
seemcd to bo no reasonable doubt of tho fact,
from tlie daily or weekly rcception of wavbills
at tl c post olficcs. Onco a postmaster, ahvnys
a posunasier, unin ihe resignalion wns ncccnl
ed by the Postmastcr General, and tho bonds
ftlr. Danasaid it was somowhai singular that
no pretenco whatever was rnade by anv one,
inai anoincr man :ir. Aikcn was postmastcr at
Lamoilcvillc. If such wero tho fact, it was
easy for gentlemcn to show it.
