Of this important committee, Senator Edmund of Vermont is a leading member, and be has been actively engaged of late in investigations in regard to salaries, perquisites, fees, frauds. znents for politic! purposes, 4c, among the officials in the New York Custom House, and dseivDere. It is said that these cxaroina tions bear prominently on the probable effect of a change especially in the revenue De partment, which shall make the term of office depend solely on trustworthiness and good conduct - and the lurthcr statement is not a very surprising one that the committee have already reached the conclusion "that efficient men cannot be se cured and retained, while political influence determines appointment!' and rem val- A ashington despatch i,f the l.uli says "the committee will meet here to-morrow and continue in session until the meeting of Congress The report will be quite lengthy, and is pretty severe on some of the head of the different departments of the govern ment." Without doubt the committee are rcourin some interesting information, and will be able to recommend some important changes in the public service. If tbey can secure a change which will remove to any ap:-reeipbw extent the evils arising from the Auwriean system of sweeping removals and appoint ments solely on political grounds, they will render the country a piece of most valuable service.

Ac cording to a late visitor to the Secretary, "Hor ace Greeley," Mr. Seward said, " is a great man a man to full of genius and of such power that if he bad a particle of common tease we should have to hang him. But he is a d 1 fool, and therefore harmless." TLe Richmond Examiner, and several De mocratic papers, support Hi. Greeley. The Albany Journal does not, and the State prets is largely divided, those of Central and West ern New York claiming the Senatorsbip fur tbeir sections, and suggesting a variety of candidates.

Such conventions seem to please Sirs. Mott, Mrs. Lacy Stone lllackwcll, Mrs. Stanton, Parker I'llsbury and the otuer old ladies who chit fly compose them and we do not ktcw that they do any harjn. The great mass of the women of America bless their gentle hearts and sen?ibb beads ; no more desire to vole than they do "to drive i-tgc and sing base."

How much the other candidates spent at the first election is not stated, nor are we informed cf the amount expended by the candidates at the second election. It most have been large We see ia this lavish expenditure the secret or the continued success of the radical party in Vermont. Pretending to be the exponent cf loyalty and patriotism, it proves itself the off spring of corruption, and looks fcr its continued lease of office, net to the intelligence of the peo nl. bnt to the venalitv of the voters and the wealth of its leaders. As long as the voters of Vermont can be bought and solJ, like cattle in the market, so long will the present dominant party retain power. J'latitourgh jupuouean. The Republican has taken for "gospel truth" some of the statements of the Mont pclier Arnus, whose assertions arc as a gen eral rule srima facie evidence that tbc thing asserted is not so ; and reproducing tbcm with some added assumptions of ita own, holds up both hands in holy horror over the spectacle presented. There is a grain or two of truth in the "disclosures" referred to. It is tree that a radical candidate lor Congress in the Third Vermont District re cently spent a very large sum to secure an election, and that be failed to get it. It is not true that he sold out his chances for twenty thousand dollars, or twenty thousand cents. His withdrawal from tho field was not effected by money or offers of money ; and having withdrawn he had no "chances" that any sane man would pay cent for. Neither is It true that much mon ey was spent by anybody on the second elec tion. It is sufficiently disgraceful that money should have been used to the extent that it was, and with the effect seen, in our district during the Erst campaign. We do 1JK.N EDICT not pallutc it, a particle. It is to be noted, however, that the attempt to buy ho election failed, and is not likelv to K. rented mm . J 1 " very soon, in crmnnt.

For forty years, gentlemen, this Countrv has been governed ia the imereo of slavery, and for a long period, amorg the people of the nort.bil had been decreed that, at least, we should confine and restrain the institution of slavery to the present slave 1 Statcs that is tlie then present slave States that it should occupy or sprcai itself Into 1 no more oi the territory of the United States. I This was as far us the fondest dream of the most intense lover of liberty, or the most ar dent hater oi slavery went that it should be conuacu wuuin iui e.uvu prevcuh nuiwiiviifl. It had been claimed tint the Lnrrcis of the United States bad no power whatever over i the instiition ol slavery within the Suite : ; that tbe V wer to remove or retain it re-1 innmed with tbe several State guvcrnmcnt' ; i that it could not be removed except by a coostitu ti'jnal ametrdment, and no one sup posed, then, that tbey would ever see a con- stitn'.ioaal ahsejjdtnent adopted by which slavery in the United States would be abol ished. To restrict slavery to :ts then exist iae limits was tbe fondest hope of th" most ardent lover oi liberty in flic north. Upon that issue tbe people went into a rrceiacn tial eJeuioti in I860 and succeeded io e loct- Irg Sir. Uncoln as President of the United ! Slates. This was Htade the Oceanian for tie ! levolt although it was not iropoed by the j party iu jiower :hat slavery will in the ! States should be disturbed, abolist.eo, or in terfeted with in any way They claimed that tbey had tbe right to settle tbe matter Irr ballot no one claimed tbey had ihe power to do any more than this. This wns excuse enough lor the southern States to at tempt the disruption of this government. After four years of Woody war ; after a lews ot almost half a million of lives, armed re bellion throughout tbe land has been sub dued and we now come to tbe important question ot bow these Statei1, which have been in rebellion, can be restored to their protr status in the Union There arc tw j . . i - . i - tncoriee upon we poini iwu piucies. ene is tbe policy of Congress and is embrace i in tbc constitutional amendments as proposed. and the otl.cr is the one termed the policy of the President, or ".My l'oliey.' tne iucs tion now to be derided is which of tbee is tbe right and tbe true loliey, which will most quickly advance the restoration of the Union. Wc arc met at tbe outset by tbis argument on tbe part ol the President and hie followers. They say that nobody has any right to impose conditions of any description upon the south until tbey are repretentde in congress ; that when the re bellion was suppressed these states resumed their former status in the general govcrmcnt; that they came out in all tbeir original strcneth and beauty, and that nobody has a right to imposea single condition upon them prior ij tueir rc-auiniswou juw enc uanouai conffresj. Now. rentlemcn. if that is true if it be true that there exists in this government no power whatever t) extend conditions to those who have just retired from a fruitless c0ort to overwhelm and destroy this govern ment, then there is an end ol tne whole matter at once ! That is tbe policy of the President now what was it when tbe rebels first laid down their arms? What was his doctrine then? Did he then tay, that no conditions could or should be imposed upon the rebel"? Whtt did he do? The first I by the Supreme Court it cannot well be claim-thin- to" be done was the appointment ol e,l that we have the right to protect a southern, r-rovTsional governors over the recently rc- ;.,yal, white man even, under any clause m the bcllious States.

This is the language of President Johnson himself, that all civil government in these States had been destroyed and that a new civil government was to be fet up.

We tay In this amei daunt to the people of the South if you ill let the nero vote you will be represented for the whole of them, just as we represent our people. If you ssy the ne- gro shall not vote and shell take no p irt what- ever in your politics, wc tay tbey shill not be represented by you. Let the n i th and the smith be represented alike. Tlwy think, and siy, thai is a very hard proposition. "We can have the negroes all about us ; they can wait on us and be our servants and wc will treat them well ; they can come in very near proximity to ut in every place and under all circumstances except at the ballot box." And irr sy very well, juit let them ao without vctine as lone as ou please and ne will represent them to cellwr ! They claim that the negroes ia the south ttsad upon tSe same greund as the non voting population ot :be north tbe foreigners, men, women and children. Iu ihis very State of Vermont, where, perhaps, the rigl.t of suf frage is more widely extended thin in any other Sutc in the Union, only about oie in five have the right of suffrage. Oer women 'and children do not vote. Dj the ordinary ratio, that is one in ne, we are lust as much entitled to renre rttitioo for them as you are- ior your bou vot ing population in the sou'h. If it is true that the negroes have been our iriie friinls during our struggle then tbey are tit:tled tu vote l..r what they have dobe. and although our women and children do not fight they are by no nieaos without their intlaeuoo in the campaign. Tne voters are made up of the ttthere, brother, sons and husbands, and it ia supposed t'mt when they vole for any man they are ju-t as mindful of the interests of the matrons, wives ami titugniers, as incy are ot the.r own eeen and although this cemmunitv of f, males are- non-voters their interests are just as eardu'lr looked after as though tl-ey were voters.

Tfecr have con trived, by some meant er other, to ml way find nfiUent help ia the north to enable them to do it. Aad it is eitreraely probably that they can find just such help ia tae north us tbey have found heretofore. Is thete cvthiu u cur pre vious hiatotj to warrant this assert i u' It is saked what harm can thev do u- ' We abolished slavery, now what is left them T What haras is there that they c uld do to as that makes it so very necessary that we should guard against it by adopting these an.eudmentV I wdl alia h t.t but just one thing In eirrying on this i.' we incurred a debt oi three thou sand ii i it ot dullvrn Nearly .el. of that a' .' - owduc. The great u.i.-suf it is ..t.. j : ue byal people of the mrth. Vll the in iij we have got is touaded ujkii il it as iIk f.uad.etUn of all trusts, all chariiicsi t every 'iege io the cotratry and of every hospital. Ihe funds of all tbe widows and orphans ia tbe country are in this government pvper. It lies at the very bottom of the business reUtioas of I tbe cjuntry. Xow, how has this debt b.-ei in j corred ' By putting down thc rebellion. All i the profit that these men in the sooth bier re ceived, from it, is thvt it has ruined tteni ! Tbey have lost their thousands of nii'.livns of dollars in slaves all their property nearly. A much larger population probably has been exit in the south tain in the north accuiding to tbtir population. Tbeir number of crippled soldiers widows and orphans, is much larger in piopjr tiou to the population than ours. Tbey have an immense pension roll. They hate incurred pecuniary lews altogether beyond what we have and every one of tbeir cripples, widows and orphnna goes pensivnless. This immense debt which wc hare taken upon ourselves has been rolled up in putting down the southern rebellion and I don't care what men tbey send to Congress from the south, do you believe there would be a single southern representative that would not prevent by every means in bis jiowtr the pay ment of a single dollar of thit d. it ? It is rot in human nature that it should be otherwise ! If we were in tbe same serious situation that tbey are in wc would do the very same thing 1 Do you ihink that the men who went out to Chicago in that dark hour in our country's history, and resolved that the war for the Union was a fail ure and oughth to be stopped do you think it would be impossible for them to vote against an appropriation for payia- tbis debt ? It dots not look eitheir impossable or improbable to me. This is reason enough why hc need to guard our interests by tbe adoption of this ameadment. But 1 should have gone it'll farther. 1 would not have been content, myself, with these con ditio dj. It has always seemed to mc that iu a scheme cf reconstruction to bring these states back into thc Union, it was tbe most cruel piece of injustice to neglect the blacks who aided u so effectually daring our daik days of trouble. Out of the black populaticn in thc south we got more thn 'MO.WJ soldiers to help put uown thc rebellion. Throughout all the south, when our prisoners escaped, they were aided in every possible way by the blacks. Xot an instance has been found where these iople refused aid, shelter or help of any kind to our soldiers and friends. Although they were in the power of their masters they were loyal in every instance and true to thc flag of the Union, and it did seem to mc to be bard that wc should propose a plan of re-union by which tbey would be left out. I would have adopted the pood old Ver mont rule, where every nan, white or black, rich or poor, has a right to vote ! That is the rule I believe in. That is the iu!c I would have been satisfied with and nothing short of it tap plausc) had it been deemed practicable. But it was believed by the committee cn reconstruction of which my friend who last spoke, Mr. Mor rill, was a "member impracticable that any colored man should be allowed to vote, and it was believed that it would not be adopted by many of thc northern states. Connecticut and Wisconsin both have voted against extending suffrage to colored people in those states. Yet wc do hope that, as time rolls on, this prejudice against negroes growing out of slavery in some degree will cease, and the great desire on the part ot thc south for political power, will lead to the extending of suffrage to colored men. A word, Mr. President, in reference to the remaining article. We have said to them that any pc"011 WD0 ae ktld a position requiring him to support the constitution ot thc United Stales, if hc (ball have held any office, either under the general government in the so called confederacy, thereby breaking his oath to the const itution of the United States, that he shall not be allowed to hold efflce under either our nrral or state covernments until a two thirds . .

Mtttrt. Editors of the Free Press : The people of this place enjoyed, last evening, the rare treat of a discourse on education by Secretary Adims. The friends of the Lamoille County Grammar School have erected during the ssason a new academy luildirg. It was planned by Archi tect Johnson of your city, and is, for a commu nity as sparse as ours, without any exaggera- ration, a splendid edifice. The ccetrfsr a people et no ampler means than ours, is great Still, there is spirit enough amongst the Trustees and the friends of the Institution to meet the entire demand. The great Hall of the building, embracing whole of the second story, was opened last even ing to the public for the discourse alluded to. MB. ADASB DISCOrRE. Mr. Adams beiran he uneabin f th. Ihies the surrouudintr nnblie nurds sn i.h.n.1. for such an institution. On this must depend much of its power in accomplishing the work for which it was intended. Iln hnt.nl in ik .- ond place how varied and valuable the advan tages the public would derive from it ; pecuni ary by bringing money directly into the place ; social, by inducing families to seek homes near such an institution ; intellectual in the influ ence exerted upon the surrounding public, direct or indirect. To all which must ba super added the humanizing and civilizing power of such an institution. Having thus laid out his work in its local bearings, he passed to the nature ami th - of Education ia general, in a strain of eloquence aad argument more masterly than it has been w ioi io nave heard before. His definition or education was. that which enables a men tt mvkc the most and the best of his rowers. He gave some time to cnticisms on the ordinary modes pressed hard the noint cf tha tbnmnb nets that would lead the pupil to love his work such slowness in the process as would exhaust topics aa the scholar advanced ; and urged, that an uu topics nitberto troujht into prominence in colleges and academies, that is to say, the I'.ng cherished curriculum, were not to be neglectel, yet that the natural sciences in iht-ir entirety should be made individually sub jects of profound study ; that out of this mutt grow a thorough and satisfying knowledge of man and of Col. He closed with an appeal to the people not to fdl in training the youthful mind into a knowl edge ot the Constitutions both of the Jt'ation and of the State, showing, as only Mr. Adams can, the terrible evils that have resulted from ignorance here. Often have I heard that gifted man ; but in no instance heretofore, hza he elucidated so finely the value of mastering our native lan guage. It would almost seem on that subject as if he were inspired. I think hc must have dipped pretty thoroughly into that profound traathe on thc English Language lately given to the public by the great Vermonter, George P. Marsh. Allow me to say in closing, that, much as the Lamoille Csunty Grammar School has done for the cul tare cf the young during the thirty years of its existence, it bids fair now in its splendid edifice under the management of its present Principal, Mr. S. n. Pearl, to perpe tuate its reputation. D. T HE PEOPOSID MONCIIENT TO Gov. CjIIT- TX.1DEN-. The Montpelicr correspondent ol the Rutland Herald siyj: "Among thc sins of omission (of the Legislature) ia thc refusal to provide means for thc erec tion of a monument at the grave ol Thomas Chittenden. A statue of Ethan Allen In tho portico of tbe State House, and a monument over his remains at Butlington, testify to tho appreciation ol tbc hero by the State for which he fought so nobly. But he U not a whit moro worthy of honorable and enduring remembrance than the statesman who did as great a work in the council- ebamber as Allen did in the field. Thomas Chittenden was to Vermont what Washing, ton was to the United States. But the only iaomiccnt to his grave is a piece oi slate a boat two and a half feet Kiuarc. UDon which is tbc inscription, almost illegible by reason of rust and moss, " In memory of his xjeellency. Gov. Thomas Chittenden, who governed the State of Vermont from March 1778, to thc time of his death, August 1797, save one year. Ho was born January Cth, 1730. His was a life of usefulness; let those who read imitate his virtues." Thc State ot Vermont would honor itself by re placing this perishable and rapidly perishing; stone with a stately column of marble as pure as his character and as enduring as his fame."
