Ikt bynsolein compact, that the Statu of Maine lia done thoo lifts winch have given rise to oom phiuits for which no udoipiatu earno is perceived. The undersigned fools conlidout that when them; nrU shall have heen considered hy Her Majesty's Government at home, as explained in his liotu to Mr. Fox, of the 21th of Doicmder hut. nnd in connexion with the foiotroimr remarks, they will no longer ho viewed as calculated to oxeitu the apprehensions of her Majesty's Government, that the faith of nrraniremonts is lo lu broken on the part of the United 'States. With regard to the second position assumed bv Mr. l'ox, that the advance of the Mnineposse nfoni? the Hc.stook to the month of Fish River, nnd into the valley of the Upper St. John, isnt va riance with the terms nnd spirit of the agreements the undersigned musiobsorvo that if at variance with nnv of their provisions, it could only he with those which secure her Majesty's province ofNew Brunswick ntrnliM any attempt to disturb the possession of the Madawuska settlement, and to interrupt the ii-unl communications between New Hrnnswiek and the Upper Provinces. The agree ment could only have referred to the Madawnska settlements as confined within their actual limits nt the time it was subscribed. The undersigned, in his note of the Slth of December last, stated the reasons why the mouth of FMi River and the portion of the valley of the St. John through which it passes, could in no proper sense bo cou riered as embraced in the Ma-'awnskn settlements Were the United States to admit the pretension set up on the pnrt of Great Hritain, to give to the Madawaska settlements n degrco of constructive extension that mi?hl, nt this time, suit the pur poses of her Majesty's colonial authorities, those settlements might soon be made, with like jiMice to embrace any portions of the disputed territory J and the right given to the province of New Brim's wiek to occupy them temporarily and for a special purpose might, by inference quite as plausi!le,give the jurisdiction exercised by her Majesty's au thorities nn extent which would render the present Mate of the question, so long as it could be main tained equivalent to n decision on the merits of the whole controversy in favor of Great Britain. if the small settlement ofMadawaskn, on the north side of the St. Johns, means the whole val ley of that river if a boom ncros the Fish river, and the station of a small posse on the south side of theSt. Johns nt the mouth of Fish river is adis turbance of that settlement, which is twenty-five miles below, within the meaning of the agreement it N difficult to conceive that there are any limita tions to the pretensions of Her Majesty's covern ment under it, or how the state of Maine could exercise the preventive power with regard to trespassers, winch was, on her part, the great ob ject of the temporary arrangement. The move ments of British troops lately witnessed in the disputed territory, and the erection of military works for their protection and accommodation, of which authentic in'nrmation recently received at the Department ofStatc, has been eommunicatc.l to Mr. Fox, impart a still graver aspect to the matter immediately under consideration. The fact oftluisc military operations established beyond a doubt, left unexplained, or unsatisfactorily ue eounted for, by Mr. Fox's note of the 7lh instant continues nn abiding caueof complaint on the part of tliu United Slates nyaint Her Majesty's colonial agents, as inconsistent with arrangements whose main obiect was to divest a question, al ready sufficiently perplexed and complicated from Mich embarrassments as those with which the proceedings of the British authorities cannot fail to surround it. If, as Mr. Fox must admit, the objects of the late agreements were the removal of all military force and the preservation of the property from farther spoliations, leaving the possession and ju risdiction as they stood before the State of Maine found itself compelled to act against, the tress passers, the President cannot but consider that the conduct ofthe American local authorities strongly nnd most favorably contrasts with that ofthe co lonial authorities of her Majesty,' Government. While the one, promptly withdrawing its military force, has confined itself to the use of the small possee, armed ns agreed upon, and. and lias done no act not necessary to the accomplishment of mc conventional oiyects, every measure tnl.en or indicated by the other party, is essentially mili tary in its character, and can be justified only by a well founde.1 apprehension that hostilities "must cusne. With such feelings and convictions the President could not see, without painful stirpri-c, the attempt of Mr. Fox, under instructions from his Govern ment, to give to the existing state of things a char acter not warranted by the friendly disposition of the United fetales or tlio conduct ol the authorities nnd people of Maine much more is he surprised to find it alleged as a ground for strengthening a military force and preparing for a hostile collision with the unarmed inhabitants of a friendly state, pursuing within their own borders, their peaceful occupations or exerting themselves in compliance with tneir agreements to protect the property m dispute from unauthorised spoliation. The President wishes that ho could dispel the icar tnai inc-e iiarn loroijodings can ho realized. Unless her Mnielv's Government shall forthwith arrest all military interference in the question unless ti snail apply 10 the subject more deterium cd ellbrt.s than have hitherto been made lo brim the dispute to a certain and pacific adjustment, the misfortunes predicted by Mr. Fox in the name in nisviovcrnineiii, may most tinlorlunately Imp pen. Hut no apprehension of the consequence: Fox can be i.crmitied to' divert 1 in.1 people- ot the United States I ance oi'thcir duty to the Slate of j the Government Irom the performance Maine. The duly is as simple as it is imperative, J fie construction which is given by her to the treaty of 1783 has been, again and again, and in the most solemn manner, asserted also by the Fed eral Government, and must be maintained, unless Maine freely consents to a new boundary, or un less that c&nstruetiou of the treaty is found to be erroneous by the decision of a disinterested and independent tribunal, selected by the parties for its linal adjustment. The President, on assuming the duties i flu's, station, avowed his determination, nil other means ofne-rotialion f.iiliiiL'. lo submit n proposition to the Government of Great JSritaiu to i refer the decision of the question once more to a mini pariy. In all the subsequent steps which have been ta ken upon the subject by his direction, h has been actuated by the same spirit. Neither his disposi tion in the matter, nor his opinion ns to the pro priety of that course has undergone any change. Should the fulfilment of his wishes be defeated, either by an unwillingness on the part of her Ma jesty's Government to meet the oiler of the United States m the spirit in which it is made, or from adverse circumstances of any description, tho President u'H I in i,,,. .....,. .l.t.:.... ...

The Honorable John FoiisTTtt, &c. iVc. &c. Extract from Mr. ISiiclmiinu's printed Speech. " Sir, I solemnly believe that if wo could but reduce this inflated paper bubble to nnythiiig like reasonable dimensions. New England would be come the most prosperous manufacturing country tha t the sun ever shone upon. Why cannot we ma nufacture good, nnd o'peeiallvcottoti goods, which will go into siiecoisfnl competition with British manufactures in foreign markets? Have we not the industry 1 Have we not the machinery V And, above all, nre not our. skill, energy, and enterprise, pro verbal throughout the world 1 Land is nNo cheaper here than m any other country on the face of the earth. Wo possess every advanlngo which Providence can bestow upon us for the ma nufacture of cotton; but they tire nil counterba lanced by the folly of man. The raw material vans us less than it doe the Knglih, because this is an article the. price of which depends upon foreign markets, and is not legiilaled by our own inflated turrency. We, therefore, save the freight ofthe cotton across the Atlantic, nnd that of the mami- lactured article nn its return licie. tv hat is llic reason that, with all these advantages, nnd with the protective duties, which our laws ull'ord to the domestic manufacturer of cotton, we cannot obtain exclusive noscsion ofthe home market, and suc cessfully contend for the markets ofthe world ? " it is simply hccatise we maiinlactnro at the nominal prices of our own inflated currency, nnn are compelled io sen at me real prices of other nations. Reduce our nominal to the real standard of prices throughout the teortf, and you cover our country with blessings and benefits. 1 wish to Heaven I could speak in a voice loud enough to be heard throughout New England ; be cause, if the nltcnti'Jii ofthe manufacturers could once Its directed lo the subject, their own intelli gence nnd native sagacity would teach them how in juriously they arc affected by our bloated bank ing and credit system, and toould enable them to apply the proper corrective. " What is the reason that our manufactures have been able to sustain any sort of competition, even in the homo market, with those of British origin 1 It is I reaiiu England herself', to a great extent, a paper money country, though, in this re-poet, not to beconipared Willi our own. From this very cause, price in England arc much higher than they nie upon the continent. The expense of liv ing is there double what it costs in France. Hence, all the English who desire to nur-e their fortunes by living cheaply, emigrate from ther own country to France, or so'me other portion of the continent. The comparative low prices of France and Ger many have ailbrded such a stimulus to their manu factures that they ate now rapidly extending them selves, and would obtain possession, in no small degree, even of the English home market, if it were not for their protecting duties. Whilst Uritish manufactures nre now languishing, those of the continent are springing into a healthy and vigorous existence. It was but the other day that I saw an extract from an English paper, which stated that whilst the cutlery manufactured in Germany was erina! in duality with the Uritish, it was so reduced in price that the latter would have to abandon the manufacture altogether." Mr. Davis's Comment. What do we gather from this t What is the obstacle to the success ofthe manufacturer, in the opinion ofthe Senator 1 What prevents him from obtaining exclusive possession of our market, and sharing those of the world in the sale of his pro ductions? It is the inflated paper bubble : it is "because we manufacture nt the nominal prices of uhi uim imiuicn currency, ana are compelled to sell at the real prices of other nations." S ich, in his view, is the cau-e of our embarrassments anil failure in success. Now, sir, what is the remedy proposed by the Senator 1 "Kodnco (.ays be) our iiuminai hi me real Bianuarit oj j-rtcei inroiti out the world, nnd yon cover our country with " ,s S!,1(- the jury thought seriously of I'C blessings and benefits.." We are to take cxclusiie . turning the verdict its soon as the evam- iussusmu ji uur own marKci, anu enter hosu ol . the world stiecessfutly-and by what process ? IK- redueiug the cOst of our goods "to the standard of prices throughout the world;" by bringing wage? downas low as those who manufacture cheapest ; for by no other process can we enter the markets ofthe world in successful competition. The Sena tor shows us that England is carrying on nn tin ssttccessinl competition, in the manufacture of cut lery, with Germany, beeatisii of the paper money of England. Germany, he alleges, is a art money country, and the cost' of production or wages is lower, and she therefore manufactures cheaper. Now, sir, what is the standard of prices through out the world 1 it must 1 e a standard which will enable us to sell as low as others to produce as low as the nation that produces lowest, or wc can not get the exclusive possession of our own market, and enter the markets of the world in successful """I""'"?... must go down to the wages of ra",,e'. rinany, and other countries that pr.Hluce owtr ,,l;,u 'J,ir !Jl'0'l-,''- l,r ol Eng and. It- 1 can understand language, the paper bubble is to be reduced till this result is reached. The Senator says lie is lor u mixed currency, but goes for the reduction of it till it brings prices to this standard. Of what couscqnencc is it, Mr President, whether it shall be mixed or unmixed, hard money, or hard money and paper, if the reduction is to go on till tin's elTc.'t ofconiing down to the standard of prices throughout the world is produced 1 None what ever; and yet so confident is the Senator in the soundno-s of his policy that he exhorts the man ufacturers 10 take liiu corrective into tlieir own hands, and to bring this icsiilt about; and yet lie complains of me as representing him as too much of a hard money man. I suppo-ed in all this the Scnatorlooked really to hard money; but whether he did or not is of little consequence, as the eilect on labor and bitsine-s would be the same. 1 was led to this conclusion, for I thought he would not wish to l e understood as viewing one currency as most useful to the manufacturers and another to the country. Jl there be confusion m the matter, 1 am not answerable for that, lor I replied to such onin- ions as were advanced. It appeared to mo the evil complained of was the expansion of the currency, iiuu uiu rcmeuy proposed a reduction to tips stau twi ol"l'l icc throughout the world.

NEW ORGANIZATION OF THE MILITIA. The New York Gazotlo gives tho fol lowing epitome of Mr Poinsett's plan for organizing tho militia of tho United States: "An enrolment is to bo mado of all white male citizens of tho United States between the ages of twenty and forty-five all of whom aro required to be fully armed and equipped, inspected, nnd re viewed in thoir respective states, when ever required by tho stato laws. From tho Mass ofthe militia thus enrolled, and numbering a million and a half, there is to bo taken in each state and territory such number, by draft or voluntary enlistment, between the ages of 21 and 37. as will make up it force not exceeding 100,000 men, in tho following proportions for each stato tititl territory : Maine, 4,400 inou ; New Hampshire 2,400; Vermont 2,400; Massachusetts G',000; Connecticut 2,800; Khorfc Island 800; New York 18,000 ; Now Jersey 2,800; Pennsylvania 10,400; Delaware 800; Maryland !J,200; Vir ginia G',000 ; District of Columbia 400; North Carolina 4,400 ; South Carolina, 2,400 ; tJoorciti 2,800 ; Florida 400 ; Mississippi 800 ; Louisiana l,f)00; Ten nessee 4,400 ; Arkansas 400; Missouri 1,200; Iowa 400; Kentucky 4,400 ; Illi nois 1,200; Indiana 2,800; Ohio 8,000; Michigan 800 ; and Wisconsin 400 men. This force is to ho denominated the acvivi: or Movn.utt.r, force. Another class is to he organized under the name of the reserve or sedentary force; and the order of precedence between the the army of the United States and the militia, and hetween the several classes ofthe militia with one another, is its fol lows: 1. Troops ofthe United States. 2. Militia of the United States, in this order, to wit : 1. Tho activi: force. 2. The .st:nr,NTAnv force, ti. The mass. An adjutant trcnoral ofthe militia is to be appointed by the President, whose office will he at Washington, ami salary S!i,000. Ho is to he allowed two clerks, it necessary. 1 bo President designates till depots of arms and munitions of war. and appoints the place of rendezvous for the troops when called into active service. When called out, the militia are subject to the same rules and articles of war as the regular troops of the United States; but no detachment can be required to serve more than six months in any one year. While in actual service their pay and ra tions are those of the troops ofthe regular army and in case of death or wounds, they or their widows arc placed on the same footing its to pensions, with soldiers killed or wounded in the regular service. The whole country for the convenience of instruction and discipline, is to be di vided into ten districts, and proper regu lations are to be made as to the instruction of officers and men. The details of the whole plan are given by the Secretary of War, at great length ; but the above are tho main features of this plan, and all that are necessary to enable our readers to understand its general scope."

Having published some severe and un just remarks against Mr. Tiippor shortly after his fatal diflictihy with Cook, wo take pleasure in making known the re sult of his trial through our columns. The trial commenced on Wednsdav, the 19th of February, and terminated on Saturday evening in a verdict of acquital. The prosecution was conducted with un common rigor; there being three lawyers employed besides tho District Attorney. The defence was conducted by Messrs. Reid, Rollins, Foote and Prentiss. The jury were out about half a minute. It was so clearly u caso of self-ilelbneo, that ;,,!,, f(l, ;, , , , 11 inp ol tllu witnesses was closed; but con- .l.l..,l .1 ;.. . -,. ... v......... nui iu uusu, in uslico to Mr. 1 im- per, whose reputation they wished to see properly vindicated. It was argued by the defence, its a question of reputation alone ; and most triumphantly was Mr. T's conduct sustained. The Court House was crowded during the whole trial ; ami when the verdict of acquittal was read, the crowd, so far as could be discovered. responded to it unanimously by loud cheering and clapping of hands. STATIC OF VEI.MONT. A IKOXAIttATIOI. nv Tim ooviins-on. Tin; season has' again relurnrd, in which, by a long Csiabli.hel usage, the people of this State have been noeiistomej to assemble mr the pur pose of engaging in the exercises of public Fast ing and I'itAYi:n. The propriety of this custom has 1 ecu recommended by its 'icgular ob.-cr-vance from our carlicl history, and! is every where sanctioned by the precepts of religion. Man needs to bo reminded of bis dcpcnd.iui'c upon his Creator, lest he become forgetful of the arm that sustain? and the hand that feeds him. In conformity with this laudable practice, 1 do hereby appoint Friday, the tenth day of April next, to bo observed by the people of this State, as a day of Fasting, Humiliation nnd Prayer, and lccoiniueud that they abstain from all labor and recreation inconsistent with its due observance. May the people-on that day, assemble at thoir several places ofpuMic- worship, be ledlo a faith ful review of thu past, and to serious meditation apoil their re?l)cclivi! duties and rcsnnnciliilii;,...

I.ct it also le a day of sincere humiliation for theins ofthe laud ; and while we grieve for the crimes and vices which reproach our country, let us fervently

pray that all acts of public wrong, injustice nnd oppicssion, may 0 speedily redressed, that the spun of insubordination, disregard of law and right and the hitherto uncontrolled ambition of men may be restrained ; and, that respect for the laws, love ol order, of civil and religious liberty, virtue and patriotism, may universal v prevail. lu view of our dependence upon the goodness; and mercy of GOD, and our faith in his preserving and .sustaining care, it is peculiarly appropriate that we invoke his blessing upon the concerns of the passing year : That HE would order the sea sons m kindness, and bless with a rich return the labors onito husbandman That all our citizens, m their various lawful pursuits, may be prospered!
