The vague generalities of the Lamoille Express and Franklin Re publican, on this subject will not avail them. The facts lie in a nut shell. In 1831, the state decided to have a new house, but did not deter mine the location. That was left to be decided in reference to the liber ality of the rival towns. Burlington and Montpelier, alone, bid for it. Burlington pledged itself to build a house to the acceptance of the Legis lature, FREE OF EXPENSE TO THE STATE. Montpelier offered $15,000 towards a house a mere entering-wedge to the enormous ex penditurc that has followed. In 1832 the question came up for de cision, between Burlington and Montpelier. Then was the time to test our friends. Here was an im portant local question, one in which the whole west side of the mountain, and more particularly this District, was interested. Had we not a right to expect that Mr Smith would stand by his friends, by his District ? But mark the result. He was then Speaker of the House and leader of the antimasonic party. All his in fluence, personal and official in doors and out in horse-sheds, and in caucuses was exerted against us, and so his vote stands recorded recorded against giving the State House to his own District, and that ioo)Jree of expense to his immediate constituents. This decided the whole question. Our proposition being rejected, that of Montpelier was accepted, as matter of course; and the Fourth District is now sad dled with the snug little tax of $96,448 SO as the price of John Smith's fidelity to his constituents ! Of this sum Grand-Isle County must pay $1,88-1 75 ; Lamoille $2,747 86 ; Orleans $2.075 88; Franklin $7,830 41; and Chittenden $11,909 GG. And the several to ivns will be assessed in the following proportions : Bolton JI45 5G Burlington 3,207 CO S wanton j-57G 19 Chorlotlo 1,030 47 Helvidere Cambridge Eden Hydepark JullHSOU iM a ne field Morristown Sterling Watervillo Wolcott 4G 10 GOO 43 1G4 29 310 2G 442 26 61 74 5119 54 Gl) 60 177 30 194 10 520 G4 408 52 Colchester Essex Ilinesburgh Huntington Jericho Milton Richmond Shelbu'rn St. Georgo Underbill West ford Williston G42 53 710 01 014 07 305 00 71)3 41 1,074 22 405 52 090 79 CG 04 334 12 491 12 1.0G3 50 Alburgli Grand Isle Wlc La Mott North Hero South Hero 130 03 2G5 09 551 53 Bakcrsfield Berkshire Enosburgh Foirfax Fairfield Fletcher Frnnklin Georgia llighgato Montgomery Itichford 423 29 452 41 530 74 Gin 07 G97 TG 303 59 351 19 775 12 740 II 180 01 170 52 595 21 Albany 242 69 Coventry 201 20 Crafttbury 423 71 rosburgh 447 30 Jay 00 13 Lowell 09 47 Newport 102 20 Troy 205 1G West field 113 90 Total, 20,440 5.6 Sheldon St. Albans 1,110 00 For this money the tax-gatherer is now abroad with his rate-hill, spying out an extra pig here, and a surplus bushel of grain there, on which to levy. Many a poor child will, in consequence, go supperless to bed ; and how many honest poor men it will carry to the prison gate, cl.nll nnl imrim-tnke lo snv. So u 0.. - far as we are personally concerned, however, wo make no complaint. Unless our assessment is more than than $20, which wo have no reason to believe, we shall tuorlc it out be fore Election j and we would hero suggest to all the workingmcn of this District whether they will not have an excellent opportunity to do the same on Tuesday next. In connexion with this subject, it is worthy of remark, that when the question was up last fall, whether the people should be permitted to hold conventions in the granite palace, Mn. Smith voted against such a decision. What business have the people in Mr Smith's State House ! O ! they'd spoil the carpets ! Mn Stacy : Sir I observe (hat in your last paper you head an editorial article with the question "who is John Smith?" and and proceed to answer it in part, in an ablo and satisfactory manner ; 1 am sir a dem ocrat of St. Albans, but little engaged in politics, yet residing as I do where the Iriends of Mr Smith arc strenuous and un tiring in their ciTorts to gain his election; it is on this account that I wish lo answer the question propounded in your last and I shall proceed on this ground (viz:) I do not consider Mr. S. answerable tor all that his friends may assert respecting him, but I do think, that he is to bo considered as assenting to those assertions of his friends which he hears them make respecting him, or knows that they do make without taking the pains to deny them ; With this explanation I proceed to an swer your enquiry. John Sniiih id the man who was able to salts )j the Van Burcn committee from the convention at Cam bridtre that he was a "good whole hog Van Burcnile'' and as seen the democratic par ly cf this district resolved to 'support him. Dut what do his friends soy to this? that he is a whole hop- Van Burcn man? No. Hut while some arc instructed to tell par ticulur individuals that he is a good Van Durcn man, others are from tho same source instructed lo say lo other particular persons that he is a good whig, and will pledge their word and honour (for what its worthl to that effect. Now sir I am not inclined lo like such wiggling. Had Mr. Smith been willing to remain firmly, openly on democratic ground the case had been different, but as it is, in tins present condi lion of our country, when firmness and un compromising adherence to principle are so muck needed, when the old firmness of a Washington a Patrick Henry and an Ad ams, aru so fast becoming lost sight of, I cannot go for a man who is obliged to shuf fle thus much, that he may obtain a place in the councils of the nation again, when a man is obliged to summon lo his aid an army of supporters on the ground of per sonat riendship, relationship, becauso he is a citizen of St. Albans, a neighbour, and a thousand other considerations of a similar nature, and fails lo place himself for sup port upon Iho ground of his giving his at tention and best efforts lo lite interests of his whole country, then 1 lear that man is Ids I n sight of principle tliat if ho now urges the noces.-ity of voting for him because ho is a relative," a friend, or townsman, or (as has been in many cases strenuously urged by the friends of Mr. S.) because the individ ual is under obligation for past favors he will ut some future time, be obliged himself to vield to the lorce ot tho seme argument, and thus lay open the broad road lo bribery mid corruption in our government oflicers, for in in v opinion there is, no ailterence be tween bribing a man by relationship and favors past, and bribing him by a uvor to come. A"nin, wnen ins mosi iiiiimaie friends revile and scoff, at even the young men among us for making "poliliccs a mat ter cf conscience" and a man himself a can didateor Congress is willing to be under stood thai he docs not mane "pontics a matier of conscience" then, again I fear lhat what they despise in others, they will themselves forsake, and then tho only sure guide to rectitude being laid aside, our halls of legislation will become what they are fact verging to places where bribery and intrigue rule and where calm and reasona ble discussion enter not. And sir it seems to me (hat in urging such arguments as thoso of friendship, relationship, and avors shown St, Albans, Mr. S. und his friends do not comply with the spirit of the resolution adopted among others at tho Democratic Convention "to lay aside all local interests" , and go for John Smith as n "democrat." Whatever his friends in Burlington may say I know not, but I do know that here they tell us that we must vole for him as a citizen of St. Albans. Such "u my answer to the question "who is John Smith?" and it is because ho lias taken these grounds sinco his nomination, that I shall not vote for him but shall vote fur that candidate who was nominated hv the Whigs, and has stood upon the some ground during tho wnoie contest, and 1 doubt not will ever remain there and lhat manis Heman Ai.i.en.

NnwV ihcd.iy iiml now' die hour, Wc mii.it raise our pork mid Hour, If wc don't escape proud Yoikslute's power Wo'ro doomed lo penury. Wo must raise ourrju und uhent W iih our ploughs iimke una brond sweep ; Our eiifli, nt home If we don't keep, We're chained in poverty. Prom a thorough practical knowledge of the ogriculliirnl url, of more than twenty years, I am fully convinced that the follow ing statements arc founded upon fact. 1st Tlmro never ought to hava been n barrel of flour brought from Troy to Burlington, for sale. Uur resources for raising wheat, rye and corn, have been sufficient for the consumption of lha inhabitants of the State. Tho fust week in September is the best time for sowing wheat or rye. A warm, dry, rich soil, that peas have grown upon (he past summer, is as good as any other lor raising wheat. Lornground, if it can be cleared by the middle of September, will do well ; if not it is belter to keep it in re serve for a crop of spring wheat. Two acres of winter wheat is generally worth as much as three acres of spring wheal j therefore be preparing to get in your winter wheat. Spring wheat will yield as well sowed by the liltecutli ot May as earlier. It is as easy to raise twenty bushels of wheat as it is fifty ot oats, ond twcnly ol wheat is worth one hundred nf oats. However excusablu we may have been in days past, wc arc now entirely without excuse if wc do not raise not only our bread stint, but also our ports ; tor, while wo have been paying out millions of dollars for flour, wo have also paid tens of thous ands for western pork. The lime has ar rived when we must raiso our own wheat and purl;, and every other article of con. sumption that is so perfectly reasonable for us lo raise, or wo shall meet the fato that the illustrious predecessor of our present chief magistrate says all who do business on borrowed capital ought to meet, viz: break. And nit hough, 1 think the obscr. vn lion above alluded to, to be the most aristocratic sentiment that ever emanated from high authority in these United States, I think also wc have l.ttlc or no reason to expect any better stale of things tinder the reign of the present dynasty; for when wc see a president lugged into office on Iho back of his predecessor and pledged lo walk in his footsteps, and those steps have tram pled upon the once sacred but now mutila ted constitution of our beloved country, and in his first communication to congress in his official capacity uttering sontiments so entirely nt war with our free institutions as Air Van Buren s declaration thai he would veto any bill for the abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia or for chartering a United States bank and further, that the government must take care ofilsel. ond the people of themselves. I think the Ilubi con is already passed, and it is the indis pensable and imperious duty of every de scendant of tho pilgrim fathers to arouse from their slate of lethargy and indifference-, and in reality lake core of themselves: first, by providing tho necessary articles of food and clothing for the year ensuing; and secondly, to provide public servants, instead of public viastcrs, who shall act for the pond of tho country, instead of party. Ergo I think the farmers of the fourth congression ul district may about as woll send to Luu isianu and procure cann to raise instead of wheat, ns to vole for Mr. Smith instead of Mr. Allen, and those of Chittenden Counly procure rice instead of corn, as to vote for Mr. Hnswel! and Mr. Chittenden instead of Mr. Pnmcroy and Mr. Clark ; and those of Burlington may about as well raise tobacco instead of rye, as In vote for Mr. Lyman or Uallin, instead of Mr. Bradley. PLOW HANDLE, natural crook, i DO YOU KNOW JOHN SMITH ! In the cjtiea.'Juhn Smith is not a name as it docs not distinguish one individual from ten thousand others, and politically, it is a very equivocal cognomen in the coun try. It is therefore a standing quiz among the wags to ask a "raw one," do "you know John Smith?" Not long since a live Yankee was brought before tho Mayor's court to testifying about one of the unfor. tunatc "sixteen pages." Lawyer. Do you know John Smith: No reply. Lawyer, Do you know John Smith? M 11 m. Magistrate. Answer, sir! do you know John Smith? Witness. (Putting himself in attitude, laying his long bony finger beside his nose, and tiping the Magistrate a significant wink) " YOU DON'T COMK THAT LOAD OVER THIS CHILD !" Do you know John Smith, enquires the Sentinel? Yes, respond a thousand free men, wo recollect what you told us in 1831. You don't como that load over full grown children. Do you know John Smith ? asks the Lamoille Express, Certainly, replies the two-fisted mountaineer, I have got n copy of the democratic address, in 1034. "You don't come that load over this child." And thus the enquiry goes round, from mouth to mouth, through iho district, "Do you know John Smith?!" And su often does ihu response conic back "you don't come that load over Democrals."- The Sheldon paper says Mr Smith did not go to Plattshurgh for a year after the battle. Why? Was he afraid ? Tho Sentinel says that Charles Adams writes our editorial. This is certainly complimentary, to have our rough-hewn paragraphs attribut ed to one of the best writers of the day. But, like most other state ments in that print, it is false. John Smith. This disihigiihdir-d gcnilrnian has heen jioiuiunicd liy llie destructives of Vermont, ns it candidate for Cniigicss.

Still, in nbout half tho Statu thcro was no regular or serious opposition lo tho Whigs, while in one Congressional District only nro tho friend of the Administration enabled lo walk over the course. That District is Ihe First (Mr. Murray's) in tho Southern part of the State, and is but pnrlinlly heard from. In somn counties there was a spirited contest on local or pursonal grounds, but the aggro gnln volo is light. iS'rssount.--Tnc late Election 111 this Slate has been more resolutely contested than any preceding; and tho result is just about what we havu for eomo time antici pated. Although Iho Whig candidates for Congress arc thus far ahead, nnd tho same parly in tho Legislative Elections, yet thcro is no reasonable doubt that the full returns will reverse all this, ond reelect Mcdsrs, Harrison and Miller to Congress, with a Legislature that will return Hon. Thomas II. Benton to tho United States Senate.. Tho vote is much heavier than any ever before cast.
