V It I D A V M O ft N I N 0, DHCE.MBEH 21 NI5W ROAD. Tho public will bo gratified to learn that tho new road from this village to the Falls is so far completed that it is extensively travelled, and wi'l in a few days bo opened to the public. On Saturday, for the first , timo in many weeks, wo passed over it: nnd wo must acknowledge that our most sanguine expectations arc thus far more than realized. The road is all it promised, nnd more than tho contract required. Those of our readers abroad who arc ac quainted with our localities, will bo surpri sod to learn that a practically level road, not varying materially in distanco from the old one, now connects the Bay with the Fails. To such, it may not bo amiss to remark that this road commences on Pearl street near Mrs. Wadsworth's. and runs north to north-street, thence across the nlnm In llin lirOW n f the hill below tho Catholic Church, thenco along the bank over tho level ground below the Guff house, nearly on a straight line to Kiddor'a brick yard, and thence, by a deep cut, intcrsrets tho old road at the bridge. It is four rods wide, handsomely turnpiked the wiiolo dis tance, and graded so that the rise in no placo exceed? that of tho Court Hou Square. When wo consider the vast and growing importance of our trade witii the north, and north-eastern country, and in view of the expending germ of future prosperity which is but now beginning to devolopo itself at tho Fall, wo cannot resist, tho conviction that is ono of the greatest local improvements that has been made in Burlington since wo were acquain ted with it. Nor i3 it of less importance in another point of view. It practically brings the Bay and the Fallsonc half nearer together, and opens to tho public a new scciion of country, which will at no distant day be dottcJ with the abodes of peace and plenty. The view of the upper part of the town from tho plain north, is very fine, and tho imagination of man never conceived of a moro delightful rural prospect than pre eents itself at tho brow of the bill below the Church. Then osain at the ravine that mind must bo dull indeed that is not rapt in wonder at the triumphs of individual enterprise. Hero the traveller literally finds himself between two worlds, where he looks down upon the native forest trees that range on either side ; a step further, and he may pluck tho coral from tho way ido where but yesterday a mountain 6tood, and which had probably there rcposedsinco tho day that "the rains descended and the flood came." Tho magnitude of the achievement at this spot, doubtless exceeds any thing of the kind in this state, and we intend in a few days to collect and publish some statistics, touching this and other parts of the work. In this connexion wc cannot omit remark, and probably somo of our readers will be surprised to learn, that for this im provement tho public aro indebted to two individuals; and but for whom, half century would hardly havo witnessed its accomplishment. They projected it, urged it, and havo carried it forward with a zeal and pcrscveranco that few men possess True, tho town gives them $1500; but this sum, wo arc pereuaded, is very ineig nificant compared with the entire expense Thoy have expended morn than this sum in alterations and improvements not con I cm plated by the contract. Instead of bridg ing the ravine, they have built a substantial tone culvert, and filled up with solid earth what ono of tho opponents of tho road termed "tho gulf that separated Lazarus from Abram." In many other points they havo, at considerable expense, varied from tho oiiginal contract, in order to straighten tho rout. Indeed, they seem to have entered on the undertaking with tho deter, minatlon to rcalizo to tho public all they had promised. They havo done fo; and it remains for an cnlightcd and liberal com munity, who aro mainly to reap tho benefits of this enterprise, to do jusiico in the prcm. iios. It ia hardly necessary to odd, that the gentlemen to whom wo ailudo arc Mctsrs. Lyman Si Marhi, than whom, few men among us havo contributed more liberally their meam to pronuto tho sub. ttantial interest of tho town. Honor to whom honor is due.

A wo man wa9 very rudely assaulted on Monday evening, near tho bank, in Church Street. The villain endeavored to slillo her cries bv nutting his hand over her mouth ; but hninir unsuccessful in this, he w3 forced to ietreat,and wo aro sorrv to odd, escaped. Wo have heard within a few daya of sever al thefts in different parts of the town, and wo aro well porsutded that our wood-pile nnva even a larger lax than usual. But wo arc getting philosophical about u Mishor Tacv." said a dubious looking Frenchman tho other day as a customer dropped us n load wood, "you lend mo too Irec stick wood? mo got none, and my wife can't wait till" dark, ho would havo aid ; but wo cut him short.

Mr. Orange Lawrence, of Wcslford who, by the way, is brother-in-law to Mr Taylor, has sent us three Ruta Bagas which measure 10 feet in circumference and weigh -10 lbs. They are smooth, well formed vegetable?, and measure something over a peck a piece. Mr. Lawrence plant ed 14 rods of ground, ond harvested over 100 bushels, which is equal tu 1200 bushels to the acre. The land on which tlicy grow was a gravelly loam, with rye stubble, and prepared for corn. Tho corn which grew by their side, with precisely the same prep aration, and tho addition ol platter and ashes, which the turnips had not, produced at the rate of only 40 bushels. This ex pcriment illustrates very strongly the com parativo value of a corn ond turnip crop Mr. L. is further of opinion that the top wero worth more to hia stock than fi hundred of tho best hay. This crop is fast coming into favor, and wo aro persuaded that its general introduction will form new era in our farming.

We think the recent exposes cf defalcations which have been made, and the further disclosures which, il is feared, may transpire, owo their orirjin not so much tu a laxity of moral principle at the outset, as In an un fortunate mistake which has orieinatcd in the violence of party squabbles, and Ihe interested motives with which people have lougiu in tiicm. 1 nu mtstoKo is in re garding offices as created not so much fur the benefit of the people, and tha adminis trationof public affairs, as for tho cmolu. merit of individuals, and the raward of parliznnsliip. People have accordingly entered upon their public duties as the Satraps of ancient despots did, with tho solo intention of making the most to them selves, out or tho emoluments and oppor tunities of their stations. i no puuue 1 1) n (is ot tiic Untied otatcs havo Blwoys been too much appropriated, both by corporations and individuals, to tho purposes ot speculation. When tneso operations on Uncle Sam's money havo been successful, ho has suffered no loss: but in unsuccessful speculations, like Ihe Sivartwottt. ond Prico purchase of a rcvo- till ton in I exas, Undo bam must pay the piper. Thus wo sec Ihat tho Republic of the United Slates has been made indirectly, and by foul ond dishonest mentis, to bear pari tu mo expense ol Uipmcmbering l ho the Republic nf Mexico. if there was and if recent developments had not made abundance of means in the hands nf office holders, evidence of nn intent to defraud, a similar game might be played with Can ada. But the managers of this last revo lution are too late in ihe field. A. Y. Sun. The conduct of our government in regard to Texas and Canada, places the nation in a disgraceful posture before the world. In tho ono case, tha national treasury has contributed through Ihe agency of govern ..i.j mi u riM.uiii.u inn iii ouiiuu.i, ment officers several millions to carry on a war ogainsl a republican government wilh which we were at peace; arms and muni tions have been openly purchased and ship, ped from almost every port in tho United. Slates; men have been enlisted, equipped, and marched in marshal array from our territory to aid tho patriots of Texas; and yet there were no proclamation?, no denun ciations of these "nefarious" enterprises, no seizures of arms, no arrests for viola, lions of ncutrality.no armed steam-boats lo cut off supplies or intercept tho retreat of ihe illustrious Texonians. Gen. Gaines, was In be sure, ordered onto that frontier. And what did ho do? Did he attempt to prevent our citizens from taking part in the contest? Tho very reverse. His first act wa3 a violation of our neutrality, by march ing thirty miles into tho Mexican territory, and taking position loprevent the Camancho Indians Irom aiding the government to which they owed allegiance; and while there, it is susceptible nf proof that he fur nished a largo quantity of ammuition to a pretended "hunting parly." who he well knew were on I heir way lo join thoTcxans. Tfiis is llio neutrality tho government has observed toward Mexico Now let any fair-minded man compare these facts, wilh Ihe policy pursued on Ihe northern frontier. Here tho patriots have been hunted from pillar lo post, their plans discovered and exposed, their leaders or rested, their properly ocizeddenied the benefit of our market, and our peoplo for bidden, even to sympathize with them. Not content wilh tho ordinary powers of the Executive, tho neutrality act was called for an act which empowers tho subordin ates in the custom-house to disarm any cit. izcn on the merest suspicion, and requiring the seizure of all munitions designed to further tho causo of freedom in Canada. And, lest all these hindrances should not provo sufficient, tho President now cornea out with his latter-day proclamation, pre. judging their couso, and stigmatizing all who daro lo aid it. Indeed it is not now denied that Mr. Van Buren himself cominu. nicatcd to Sir John the first authentic in formation of iho plana of Dr. Nelson, and which wero thereby so signally frustrated. And all this, bo it remembered, is done lo aid a petticoat monarchy. Why, we 86k, why aro these things so? Mexico was weak; England is strong. Tho Texans sold land. scrip; the Patriots had none. Slaves would inhabit Texas ; Canada would bo tho abode of freemen. Hence neutrality at iho south was construed tn mean aid lo Texas, and at tho north eub. sorviency to the British Government, Is this honest? Is il honoroblo, that our im perial bird should play tho kilo to Iho Mexican dove, or officiate as jackall to the British lion ? CONGRESS. Congress has done nothing yet of impor lance, except tho making of sumo minchicf on the Abolition question. He who agi tates that subject for party purposes and for party ends no matter on which side of the question ho places himself can bo no friend of tho Union. On Tuesday, Mr. Charles G. Athorton, a now member from Now-hampshire, in traduced to tho Mouse of Representatives the following series of resolutions : Resolved, That this Government is a Government of limited, powerp, and that, by tho Constitution of tho United States, Congress has no jurisdiction whatever over llio institution of slavery in the several Slates of tho Confodcrccy Resolved. Thai tho petitions for tho Abo. hi ion of slavery in the District of Colum bia nnd tho Territories nf tho United Slates and against tho rornov&l of slaves from ono Stale to another, arc a part of tho plan of operations set on foot to alloct tho insliln l ion of slavery in tho several Slates, and thus indircct'y to destroy that institution within their limits. Resolved. That Congress has no right to do that indirectly which it cannot do directly ; and that Ihe agitation of the rub jeet nf slavery in the District of Columbia, or tho Territories, as a moans, and with n view of disturbing or overthrowing I lint institution in (hcscvcral Stales, is hgainst Ihe true spirit and meaning nf the Consti tution, an infringement of tho righla of tho Stales affected, nnd a breach of tho public faith on which Ihey entered into the Con. fednracy. Resolved, That llio Costitntion rcsls on Ihe broad principle of equality among tho members of the Confederacy, and thai Congress, in the exercise of its acknnwl edged powers, has no right to discriminate between tho institutions of ono nortinn ol tho States, and another, with a view of abolishing tho one nnd promoting tho oilier Jicsolved, therefore, Thai nil nlirmpN on llio port of Congress to abolish slnvery in the District ol Columbia, or tho Terri- lories, or to prohibit tho removal of slaves i from Slnto to Slate, or lo dmoriminate ho tween tho institutions of one portion of the . count r v. and another, with tho views afore- ; said, aro in violation of tho Constitution, , destructive of the fundamental principles on which the Udion of these Slates rrMs. nnd beyond the jurisdiction of Congress! i nnu i nni ever v noi n ion, mcinor ini, resoitt lion, ptoposition or paper touching or rela ing in any way, or in any extent whatever tn slavery as aforesaid, or Ihe abolition thereof, shall, on Iho presentation thereon wilhout any further action Ihercon, he loid on Ihe table without being debated, printed or referred. As soon as these resolutions had been read. Mr Athcrton proceeded lo make speech upon them, in winch ho labored tn make as much party capital as possible nul of tho Abolition question. Ho spoke half an hour, ond closed by moving the Prevwut Question! on lliesn resolutions introduced bv himself nnd by him advocated thus forcing the House In vole on his own pro.. position wilhout allowing any body else to di-cuss and hardly time to understand it. Can this be honorable? Much excitement prevailed in the House (Hie rules having been suspended 130 to 60 in favor or Ihe immediato con sideration of these resolutions.) when the Previous Question was carried by a vote of 103 lo 102; tho Main Question ordered by 114 to 107, and repeated motions tn niljnum nrganved byclnse votes. Several Members entreated Mr Athcrton to r-llnw them n few word in opposition, but wilh out effect. Mr C. II. Williams of Trnn asked to be excused from voting. Refused Mr Wise also asked lo bn excused. IcHins the House that he should refuse lo vote at any rale. Not excused. Several Mem bers attempted to explain, but were called to order.

Mr. Clay was nf opinion that the bill ought lo ossiimo a defiinite t-hapc, and with (tie view to give it one, moved to amend by marling Iho 1st day of Jan. 1040. O this Mr. Wright called for Ihe yeas. and nays, when there sprung up n very warm discussion, not only as to tho policy nf the amendment, uui as to llio original import and intent nf this far.fnmrd deposito act. Messrs.

Mr. C. intimated in nrctlv broad terms that nil the present distresses of Ihe coun try grow out or tlio boundless cxtravagonco engendered by the TarifFof 1024 and 1028. This proposition Mr. Clay denied, and contended they were owing to tho nial- administration ot lite Uovcrnmcnt. the reckless experiments of unprincipled poll, licians j but above all were Ihey owing to the illegal removal of tho public dcposilca from wlioro they wero safe in the Bank of t ho United Slates, ond properly taken care of. "Yes Sir," said Mr. Clay, "it was re moving with illegal hand tho public moneys from this Rank and placing it in pet insti tutions, which wero urged by the Execu tive, to lend il to favorites and others, that begat the wild spirit of extravagance and reckless speculation that made tho excess nf sales of public lands, and not tho Tariff, as the Senator from South Carolina seems to bupposo."

A Bear S-roriY A brar woio-hinr j.ir lbs. was killed in Goshen, a few week since, by Mr. Jacob Lewis and Mr. Bemis llobbins. Ho was started in Randolph nnd passed through Brnintree, and Gran ville In Avery's Gore thenco lo Wa rren. and thence to Lincoln mountain, where he was encountered by the huntsmen and a musket ball lodged in hia bond! frnm whence he passed nn unincumbered through Riptcn nnd Hancock lo Goshen where he had mado his pillow upon a ledge and fallen asleep. His pursuers coming up within nbout two rods lodged two balls in his head, which nan mo rttect to arouse him from his slumbers. Ho then leoped over tho ledge and received two balls more, and moved on about I 1-2 rods ond was saluted with two more, one passing through the heart, the other through the lights? Ilia burdens now becoming grcnte" than ho could convenienlly bear, ho fell down and sunn expired. A rifle ball was found in hia left ndu which was supposed to havo passed through his body and been Indged thero a year or two since.

The following from the New York Times is tho best reported American jeu d'esprit of its kind that wo havo seen. The Tnu.i.PET ami the Trombone Pr. avers. A rather novel case came off yesterday in the marine court, in which the celebrated trombone player of tho Na tional Theatre was defendant, and tho lalo proprietor of thn refectory on the corner of Church and Leonard streets wns plantiff. The suit was instituted for the purpose of recovering $9 54, the amount of an ac court for certain and divers quantities of pork ond bonus, furnished tho trombone by the plaintiff, at the request of the trumpet player, who is, or was, tho husband of a lady who made somo noise in i his city on tho occasion of "tho Wood affiir." Tho circumstances under which tho bill was contracted ore somewhat novel and omusing. When ihe Maid of Cash mere was tirsi brought out at Iho National Theatre, then under the management of the Messrs. Flynn and Willard, iho princi pal parties in thu transact inn wero engaged in Iho orchestra. Thn defendant who is Haiti to be but an indifferent master of his instrument, could nol blow a blai-t sufficient ly strong lo announce the approach of tho Chopdar lo proclaim the reward for tho head of the unknown. Ho was therefore under the necessity of applying in tho irom. bone. Now tho trombone waa innrdin alely fond of pork and beans, and refused In aid tho (rumpol, unlei-8 on evory such neenssion he would provido him with a upper of his favorite edibles. This was readily acceded -to, and the plaintiff was applied to and did furnish tho fare. For (ho first two or threo nights every thing went on well. At tho end of that timo iho trumpet began lo think of dusolv ing his coniirclion with iho tiombone, and of culling off at Iho samo lime hit pork and beans. Acting upon this thought hs gave tho trombono notico and essayed lo give this piece of music unoided. But alii,
