Honor lo Vt. Soldier. Gen. Stanunrd for
It is a natural and honorable feeling which
has led the people of almost every loynl
State tu reward with civil honors the men
who fought through the war, and won for
us the victory which assured to the jieople
their civil rights, that of choosing their re
presentatives and rulers included.
From mic!i generous impulse the men of
Rhode Inland with one accord, have nomi
nated lur Governor the gallant Iiurnside, and
the Uuiu men of Pennsylvania have placed
at the head uf their ticket, the name of a
brac soldier and good general. Gen. Geary.
Tbe same induced the Republicans of Massa
chusetts to rend Gen. Ranks to Confers :
of New Hampshire to choose Marston ; those
of New York to Iect Harlow nud Martin
dale ; :md eo on through a list whicli might
be uiadi- to include every State but one.
Everywhere but in Vkruont, the successful
eoldieio have been the moat successful candi
dates lor tiolitical positions. Vermont alone
has had uo civil honors, to speak of, lor her
heroes. Haifa dozen elected town rtpresoa
tatives, (not as many however, as would be
tbe prater numerical share of a class consti
tuting so Urge a part of our population),
with a altrv reportership, make up the sum
of all Vermont has done as yet, in this way,
for her soldiers. Why is this? Jlcr sol
diers iiae added fresh lustre to the fame of
our Green Mountain State. Do our people
not Inoio this? They have made the name
of Vermont a synonym for trustworthiness
and bravery, in an army representing the
flower or the Country. Are our citizens not
airare uf this 7 They mado sacrifices and en
dured toils and suffering and braved death,
as cheerfully us they did successfully ; havo
we forgotten it all? Are our people indif
ferent and ungrateful? Wc do not believe
it. Why then, again, wo ask, is it that
Vermont alono has had no civil rewards and
honors to give to her soldiers ? Is it that
there arc none of them fit for tbe rceponsibi
ties and labors of civil office ? Xo one will as
We can find but one explanation. The
wire pullers who commonly allot our offices
and run our nominating Conventions, and
who staid at home to look after such neces
sary matters while the soldiers went to the
War, btgan early to fear that their occupa
tion might be gone, if they allowed honor
able distinction in the Army to become
passport to distinction at home. Long b
fore the war closed they laid their heads
together and decided that if they could pre
vent it, none of" these officers" should have
any office in the gift of tho people. They
should have lair words and nothing else.
This wc believe to have been a deliberate
plan, and it has been successfully carried out
thus far. Do not tbe people think this
state of things has lasted long enough ?
The jieople of this Congressional district
will shortly have to select a new candidate
for their representative in Congress. Mr.
Baxter, having had three elections, cannot
expect a lourth, and if we are correctly in-
formed does not desire one. Wc have in the
district a gallant soldier, who may be confid

Supreme Court of the United States.
The decision of tbe Supreme Court at
Washington, delivered yesterday in the Mas
aenusetts i,tjuor cases, was one ol very
high importance, involving nothing less
than the validity of the prohibitory legila

The caw was carried to Washington by
tbe Boston liquor dealers on an apical from
the decision of tho Supreme Court of Mas
sachusetts. It was argued by no less able
and acute a lawyer than Caleb Cusbing,
and he undoubtedly made the most possible
of his ease. His argument in substance was
that the United States license carries with
it the rifjit to traffic in liquor, any StaUlaw
to the contary notwithstanding ; and that
to permit State legislation to practically an
nul thr license was destructive tu the gener
al rffect of the Internal Revenue Act, of fa
tal" tendnicy against the integrity of the
National debt, and in paljablc violation of
the Constitution, which provides that all
dutir, imposts and excises, shall be uniform
throughout the United States.
Attorney General Reed of Massachusetts,
lor the State, maintained on the other hand,
that Congress has never undertaken to
authorize the (ale of liquor, in violation of
the State Statue : that tbe States have tbe
exclnsivc power of regulating their internal
polity; 'that the Federal Government cannot
constitutionally legalize any occupation de
clared unlawful by State legislation ; that
if the f. Ic of liquor may be declared no
crime, the keeping of houses or prostitution
may likewise be made legal ; and if these
sitings may be done, there is no statute,
whether civil or criminal, of anv Stat
which may not be abrogated by the National
The Court ot highest appeal, as it was
generally anticipated it would, has sustained
this view of the case ; has refund to open
the floodgates of a comparaticly unre
strained sale of alcohol, and has 'settled the
validity of State prohibitory legislation, not
only for Massachusetts but for Vermont and
every other State. We congratulate the

Though we have known for some time that

I venture no deductions, but state a simple
fact, when I remark that President Johnson's
veto of the Freedmen's Bureau bill, and his con
servative policy generally arc approved of with
special fervor by the politicians and newspapers
here who were prominent in their advocacy of
the Southern Rebellion. Mr. Roebuck, who in
my hearing, a few nights tince, offered a solemn
htpe iu the House cf Commons that the United
States woulJ never become a united people, is
pleased with .Mr. Johnson; and all the memrwrs
of Parliament, who cheered when a li;t was
read of the ships destroyed by the confederate
privateers, are now to be found cheering wilh
iqual unanimity at tbe mention cf President
Johnson's name. He has been taken lo the
bosom of tbe English aristocracy. They regard
bim as a converted soul. When his inaugura
tion took place they feared an impetus would be
given to democracy by the accession to wonder
ful influence of a man who apr eared the incar
nation of the popular principle; but this ap
prehension gradually died way, and has been
succeeded by an afiection which cannot be
called disinterested, but which, from its very
selfishness, is sincere. In the same proportion

I am sorry to disagree on this point with some
gentlemen here and elsewhere the manufac
turers of the country, as well as all the rest of
the country, hae an interest in having this
question settled, so that they can make their
contracts at least for six months ahead.
If the policy of the Secretary ofthe Treasury
can be steadily pursued we shall avoid frequent
changes in tbe money market, the bane of all
business transactions, and every one will know
how to make arrangements accordingly. It can
not be tor the interest of any class of oar peo
ple to keep our currency below the value of oth

The gen'lenun from Pennsylvania has char
acterized this as an "enormous hill,'' because,
as he chims, it will confer exfravagant power
' upon.tue secretary or me treasury. ny. sir,
he has now all the power so much dreaded by
the gentleman from Pennsylvania, and if be
were a demon, a minister of evil, no doubt he
could eiercie that power to the injury of the
country. Ilut does anybody bebeie that ha
would willingly, with malice aforethought,
bring about a commercial revulsion in this
country, prostrate our business, bankrupt the
Treajury, sink the credit of the Government,
and destroy his own reputation 7 I must say
that, in my judgement, these are idle fcirs and
unworthy to be lodged in the brain of any man.
I hope there is enough of good sense and pat
riotism iu this Houe to sustain the bill. If we
do, I cinnot think we shall have any reason to
regret it. I do fear we ray have much for re
gret it the House undertakes to minage the fi
nances of the country. For one, I prefer the
responsibility shall be with the executive de

ry of War, and although not signed, has,
it is said, been identified as tbe production of
Mr. Clay, who wrote from St. Catbeiincs,
C. W. After some general remarks about
Young, the St. Albans raider, and the neces
sity of his doings being endorsed by tbe
Confederate government to prevent bis extra
dition, Mr. Clay says :
"Finally, disappointed in his origiaal purpose,
and in all the subsequent enterprises projected,
he proposed to return to the Confederate States
via Halifax, first passing through the New Eng
land States and burning some towns and rob
bing them of whatever be could convert to the
.utt ofthe Confederate Government. This I
approved as justifiable retaliation. He at
tempted to burn the town of St. Albans, Ver
mont, and wonld have succeeded but for the
failure of the chemical preparations with which
be was armed. Relieving the town was already
nred in several places and must be destroyed,
he then robbed the banks of all the funds he

Ay instructions to him, oft repeated, were Mo

and carry off money, or treasury or bank notes,
be had a right to do so, upon condition that
they were delivered to the proper authorities of
the Confedrate States."
Having published an Irishman's appeal
to his countrymen in opposition to tbe Fe

our columns to a continued discussion ot the

for his native. Isle and desire to tec her free
and happy; but wc can see nothing in the

Eessrs. Editors of the Free Press :
I notice an article in your paper
of March loth, purporting to be written by
one of tho oldest Irishman in this place and
giving advice to his "beloved countrymen,"
on a question that now absorbs their thoughts
and hopes. His purpose is to say a word by
way of dissuading from an attempt, on the part
of Ireland, to dissever tbe connection between
England and Ireland, as he is positite such
attempts at present ar hopeless. Let us see
what evidence the ver era Lie gentleman ad
duces 1st. He says "what can wc hope for when
net only the causes of our grievances art mads
public, but to the moJa of our redress we give
universal publicity." Has the gentleman aver
heard cf a Revolution or even a war, where the
cause was not known to the public ? It is, in
fict, impossible to have even a revolution, with-
out joining issue upon some act which in order
to secure advocates mutt be made nublie. hence
there is no harm In telling the sons of Ireland
whersver they mar be. the historic truths which
proclaim 'the bitter, burning wrongs of seven
centuries, or even, if conscientious scruples
wiilpermit us. to recall the laws, which made
millions abandon an altar which to Irishmen I
was ever holy, and accept "Mass Rocks" and
"Mui Hmhe" thmnchnnt the Ian.l. I
Agam, "every reader in England knows as

which has been already shown by England ; but
the place or time is unknown to any ons save

respectfully ask the gentleman if he thinks En

the Fenians intend to strike in Canada. Ireland,
New Australia; or what portion of her majesty s
possession will suffer first T It is acknowledged
by some of the greatest Generals in America,
that the Fenian Brotherhood makes Ireland one
ofthe strongest, and LUre.t lintam one of the
weakest nations on earth; wherever British law
exists Fenianism is there. What if England has
149,000 of a Regular Army, it is impossible for
her to-day to concentrate 100,000 of that army
anywhere; 80,000 of her forces are in the Indias I
and if she decreases that garrison, some Fenian
will be there, to remind the Sepoys how their
brothers were shot from the mouths cf British
cannon. Tht same is true In Jamaica. It ap-
pears that "a cautious and well armed Govern-
ment like England" could not "make a prison
strong enough or furnish an army large enough

Correspondence of the Free Press.
Lrttcr toa Arkansas.
Nun Mabiox, Ark., March 17, I860.
Messrs. Editors of the Free Press .
Terhaps you would like to hear
how we "Yankee farmers" are getting along
down South. Well, such rainy weather as wc
have had for the last few days, does not give
u9 a chance to get alon; very fast, except in
the way of burning wood and eating our rations.
Our land docs net overflow and we arc able to
get about as usual; but our neighbors, not a
half a mile away, arc paddling around in ca
nals. Tbe waters of the Mississippi are close
by, though its proper banks arc six miles from
here. On such occasions as tbe present, the
Father of Waters spreads himielf in a way not
very satisfactory to those living in bis vicinity.
Last week, the weathar was beautiful, and it
seemed more like tbe first of Miy than the first
of -March. We plowed all of tho week and
were round in cur shirt-sleeves. la the house,
I doors and windows were open and no fire part
of the time. Wc have our garden partial);
made. Com, peas, potatoes, lettuce and turn
ips are planted. Plum, cherry and peach trees
arc in blossom, and various flowers in our front
yard are in bloom.
The Freedmcn in this neighborhood are work
ing pretty well, and are as happy and jolly as
though the "Bureau Rill" had not been ve
toed, or lhe "Equal Suffrage Bill" had become
a law. I have never beard oncexpress the least
desire to vote, and think it is only a rery small
minority that care anything about it- I used to
be an "abolitionist," rather favoring the ex
treme of that party, but after an association of
more than two years amongt the black people,
my philanthropy has moderated somewhat. I
am in favor cf sending teachers to educate them,
but do not think it a good plan to send them
clothing and supplies.
Tbe veto of the Ilureau bill meets the appro
bation of all Northern men in this section, and
there are a good many of them. Representa
tives from nearly every State, from Maine to
Minnesota, are f irming around here, and I
think Tankeo ideas and ways are likely to be
come dominant in this part of the South, at no
distant day. We often meet ex-rebel soldiers,
and in a good natured way talk about the war.
Of course we can not all think alike, bit we
can agree to disagree. I bava never heard a
soldier speak insulting by or disrespectfully ot
the government or the Yankees. It is the "Home
Guards" that have so ranch" fault to find.
We feel that our lives and property are as
safe here as in Burlington, and probably do not
bolt and bar bait as much as you do.
Important Arrest. We learn from the
Tunes that John. A. Parks, late Icsi-ce of
