COMMUNICATION. To the lUilar if ihd Hurlingon Free Press Sin : A stranger who has spent n short time in your buatitiful and nourishing town, cannot do justicu to his own feelings, without tittctnpt ing a slight description of one of the most striking and commanding views which our country af ford;?. Wending the elevated dome of the centre building of the University of Vermont, (over the apartments of more than one hundred young and and ardent (lieon Mountain Boys, who, with an untiring winjr, are rising to professional and political eminence, under the guidance of their eloquent and accomplished President; their pro found and unambitious Ex-l'rcsidont, the mod. csty of whose character, in resigning sodistin. guisdiod a station, serves but to adorn the strength of his mind ; and, us 1 a n told, by the other able member!) of the Faculty of the Col lege,) you look around and beneath you upon a scene of surpassing beauty, grandeur and extent. Casting your eye easterly, over the rich val. ley of the Wmooski, it rests upon the high range of the Green Mountains, which stretch in an unbroken line to t tic south, and terminate only with the southern boundary of New England the Long Ul.mil Sound. Looking still farther to the east, by the aid of the imagination, you cross the beautiful vallev of the upper Connecticut, and rtriko the highest pinnacle of the White Mountains, whose sum mit, crowned with everlasting snow, towers seven thousand leet above the celebrated gorge at the base. tStill farther, in a northeastern direction, run the highlands which divide the waters that run into the A'hintic from those which run into the St. Lawrence, and ought, long since, to have been the acknowledged boundary between Maine and Lower Canada. Farther still, in the same direction, lies Que bee, the Gibraltcr of America, with its impene trable wall and martello towers, which form the defences of the city on the side of the renown ed plains of Abraham, where once lay entombed in common earth, the remains of the gallant Montcalm, the indomitable Wolf, the brave and V'c M v.'.i inery, three distinguished generals or -i.r-'o ddlbiotit nations, who contended, at (1 ,Z on: periods, for the possession of the pre c . cms loi'ks winch form the everlasting foun l mns ol the ci'y. From the high walls of the Upper Town, or the l'.ains of Abraham, yi.u look down several bundled feet into the deep bed of the St. Law rence, which di.-embugiios the surplus waters of our mighty inland seas, or interminable chain of lakes. In revie wing the motives and effects of the first of these battles, fought, as they were, to aggrandize foicign governments, and not to ame liorate the condition of the inhabitants of the soil, and benefit their posterity, the human mind cannot consider them in any other aspect than that of revulsion or horror and their military glory, however great at the time, as a bubble that must vanish upon the first burst of national applause. How abortive has been the attempt at union. The Canadian Frenchman still smokes his pipe, and drives his carriole around his farm or native village, with no other emotion than of indilFer- enco for his more enterprising Anglo-Saxon neighbors of the upper province, who impel the rapid ami rich freighted steam boats through the vast extent of our western waters. Leaving, however, this real scene, but imagi nary view, the spectator turns his eye from the dome, about a mile westward, through three broad avenues, down the gentle slope to the lake either side of them bordered by extensive gardens and substantial and tasteful edifices the inhabitants of which open their hospitable doors alike to the fellow-citizen and the stianger. Three beautiful churches, at convenient distan ces from the central square of the town, varie gate the scene, rendered still more interesting by the variety of sect, the full attendance of the religious and moral audiences of their particu lar community, and the able and often eloquent discourses of their pastors. Southwesterly, and about half way to the lake, stand the extensive edifices of Bishop Hopkins' Episcopal Institute, which are built in i; s'y'c of rare taste and architectural truth, and bo, . y. Over the lake, in a southwesterly direction, are reen Crown Point, Ticonderoga, the most vc'iCiib e of the ruins of our young and enter pr s r,g countiy, to the reduction of which, tun ty years before the revolutionary war, a M..-s clniBCtts General marched the colonial artillery of his native statu over the Blnnford stops, or mountain of rocks, as formidable as the celebiatcd passage of the Symplon by Bonaparte. Years afterwards, a citizen of this young Green Mountain State, with a small number of the Green Mountain Boys, successfully summoned the surrender of tbefe ancient fortresses " ii the name if the great Jchoiah, ami if the conti nentnl Cong riff." Opposite Burlington, and over the lake, lie the successive ranges, towering one above an oilier, oi uioso mountain!) which, running in a oulherly diiection from the line of Canada pass l'lattsburg and Port Kent, and form the high peak of Mount Defiance, in rear of the fortress last mentioned, upon the top of which, durin tho revolution, Britibli cannon were with almost incredible hdior drawn up and so placed as to look down into the foi tress and command the garrison. Still farther south, they form tho ran ges of the Katskill mountains, one spur of which, in somo roiuolo age, seeing to have madu an ef fort to obstruct the pastage of the Hudson river, but for other ages since, has uufi'urod the river to pass unobstructed through their parallel high l uiu tu West Point. Tho other branches aro h'j.i cd to form tho long clnin of Alleghany ,. "ins, which, running down, through the ' , Pennsylvania, Virginia and Tennesson, t nib the corner of Georgia, ami, entering Ah. b ip, 'urmiuaio near itt centre, at tho town o 'Ji'aijosa. But to return to tho view which we have left r d vh ch is all Immediately within the scope of the eye. From the Burlington Bay toPlatts burgh, a distauco of eighteen or twenty miles, tho lake, in a still day, lies hko tho smooth stir faco of a mirror, and, in many placer, as clearly rellects the objects presented to its face. In a clear sun. like morning, such as that which wo were contemplating, sometimes tho atinosphoro above tho lake is illuminated rather than ob sciired by tho little coruscations of fro8t or flala-tf which successively fall and disappear in thu waters of tho lake, painfully reminding the observer of tho liriofdabtiny of inan;or,as Burns ,:o exquisitely expresses it, in relation to another Mibjett: " r ;Uo n snow-drop on iho river, i 'ts a moment, f. .Hid then is lost forevur." ' But vastly more touching to tho patriotic heart, must have been tho view of tho harbor ind beautiful bay of Plattsburgli, when, on tho llthof September, 1814, the llrilish fleet were seen rounding Cumberland Mead, to commence thoir attack upon tho American sqtia'rou then lying at anchor in tho Cumberland Bay, nlmost two tnilca from shore. Bravo as they might have been, their hearts must have palpitated for tho fate of thoir wives, their daughters, and posses sions, dependant upon the issue of a contest with a stronger force, whose watch-word, liko that of New Orleans, was " beauty and booty." If there bo a moment of supremo agony, it is when your all that is dear is at stake. You seo it all your soul is in it; but your own right arm cannot reach it. The action, which com menccd in a prayer to tho God of battles, by the devout and brave Mc Donough, in presence of his assembled crews, though long and bloody terminated in shouts of victory to the brave and generous commander and their country, from the devoted sailors, who had themselves homo so conspicuous a part in the dangers of the contest Thus terminated, (wo trust in Heaven) forever, the maritime power of England in the waters of our beloved country. What might, or rather what must have been the patriotic exultation of the people of Burlington, who had watched with such intense anxiety, every movement and posi tion of the contending fleets, when they beheld the far-famed llag of England strike to an infe rior force. To describe such emotions were impossible. Americans, ye feel it in your hearts! A battle so impcrtant in itd con.-eqiionccs, and no gallantly fought, is often attended or com memoratcd by some striking incident, which, to the sailor, often superstitious, lool s dest ny, and cheers him in the fight. To the christian, it is a protecting providence, and elevates him in the darkest hour. The story of tl u rock fly. ing to the riggingduring the battle, and crowing luring tho whole action, with its effect upon the sailors, seems to bo as well avouched as any other fact of that day. It does not come within the design or scope of this communication, to describe the battle on land, in and around Pittsburgh. It is sufficient to remind tho reader that Sir George Provost, who had been for several days tkirniishing on the north side of the Saranac without success, with his fourteen thousand troopr, (regulars) against the small regular force of filteen hundred men, aided by such of the militia of Vermont and New York as could arrive in season ; com inoiiccd a regular bombardment of tho mud fort which our troops had suddenly thrown up on tho heights below the river, rather as a breast work than a fortress. Upon seeing the result of the battle on the .lake, ho ordered a precipitate re treat to Montreal. Such was tho closeness of the pursuit by the Americans, that he waa com pelled to leave many of his gallant officers', (Col. Wellington among the rest,) unburied upon the Held, within a mile or two of the village. Surely the fate of Burguoync and Provost ought to be stitHc.cnt to expol that maggot from the brains of the Brit.sh Cabinet, which makes them believe that to divide is to conquer. An American minister might assent to a less contro verted, but to thoni more mortifying proposition, that, an unsuccessful cflbrt to divide, is of itself a defeat. To divide our united country through lake Champlain and the Hudson river, has long been an object of legislative diplomacy, or war, on the part of England ; but can there be now in England, men so blinded and so infatuated as oven to hope that, when with only thre millions of inhabitants, we conquered our liberties from the mother country, fifteen millions of Ameri can citizens can tit supinely by, and, with cow ardicc or treachery, or both, suffer these ines timable liberties to be reconquered by the same power from which we won them? But lest I should wander too far from the sub- ject and fatigue your readerr, let us consider, in contemplating the view so inagniticent from the dome, if the demon tempter should oflbr all the confederated states within his view to any mere man, upon the condition that ho should fall down and worship the giver, alas! ho might accept; for he to whom this oiler would be made, is but a mere man : yet an accur ing conscience would whisper to him, how immeasurably, with all his now powers, he fell below that glorious Being, who refused all the kingdoms of the earth, and went about doing good toothers. l'roin the Rochester Democrat. OUR HOURS OF PERIL AND TERROR RES CUE FROM THIC BRINK OF THE CATA RACT.

FRIDAY MORNING. DECEMBER II, 1810. CONGRESS. On Monday last, the national legislature ossein bled at the seat of government, for the purpose of opening the second session of the present Con gross. That body never came together under more singular circumstances.than those in which they meet each other on the present occasion Having found it necessary at the commence- incut of the last session, to violate, in a gross and outrageous manner, the constitutional rights of one of the States, they deprived five of her Rcprc- entativcs of tbier scats, and in order to consur- matc the iniquity which they had in view, they proceeded to admit five other men to take the places of those who had been thus illegally re jected, without tlio shadow of evidence to sup- port their claim. In doing these things, the administration doubtless flattered themselves that they were secure of power, and might pur sue their future course of policy without check or restraint. The result of the presidential elec tion shows the gross and fatal error into which they had fallen. Instead of securing their great object tho continuance of their popularity and power they have, under the most mortifying circumstances, lost both, without room for a ray of hope that they can ever regain them. The Executive is hurled from his exalted station by a majority, which undor tbo circumstances of the case, may be considered unexampled, and there is every reason to behove that the next Congress will contain a decided majority, in both Houses, opposed to the pernicious policy of the present administration. Such a change, in so sliort a time, has never before occured ; and we have never known the time when the ruling party were in a worse mood to meet such a calamity- As there is no Speaker to choose, and no New Jersey casetooccupy their time and tbier wits, we presume the .Message from the Execu tive was delivered to ihe houses on Tcusday Probably there never was a time when public curiosity was more alive to see a document of this description, than on the present occasion.

It is true, the trite subject of foreign policy is at hand, ready if necessary, to occupy its legitimate share of room in tho ollicial address ; and we do not seo hut tint the Florida war may bo thrummed over once more, with great grav ity, and wilh an equal degreo of interest to that produced on former occasions. Wo havo somo doubts, however, whether Mr. Secretary Woobbury, uulessho deals largely in works speculation or imagination, will bo able to furnish his master with materials ne cessary for a flattering view of tlio financial department, or of his favorite subject tho Sub I reasury. Tho last is somewhat of a ticklish topic. As his Message to tho pre sent session may ho considered in tho light of n last will and testament, it is probable the President will fel it necessary to bequeath tlio Marling project to the government and country, as a legacy of great value and importance. Rut how to go about seriously to extol his hobby, after such a vast proper tion of the people havo set thoirseal of repro bation to it, and in so emphatic a manner, it is not easy to foresee. However, wo shall know moro about tho wholo subject of tho Message, when wo have opportunity to read it. But it cannot fail to bo ani'isiiv.' to sec tin two Houses como together, conscious that a comploto change in tho character of tho gov ernment has taken place since thoy separated in July last. This change, too, was uudoubt eilly altogether unexpected hy the ndminis tration, and tho loading parlizans. Thoy probably considered themselves ns entirely secure of success in the election, even up to a very Into period ; and were therefore en tiroly unprepared fur the defeat that they have experienced. What course they will think it expedient, under thoir present mor tifying circumstances, to pursue during iho present short session, wo shall not undertake to conjecture. YVAMiisivroN, Dec. I. Congress will organiro next Monday, and on Tuesday at 12 M. receive iho Presi dent's Message. AsSpeuker Hunter and tbo other officers of both beuses (except the chaplains) holdover till tbo -1th of .March next, of cour o litero will bo no difficulty of del iy in organizing. Tho Presidents .Message (which, I presume, the Post Office Deportment will transmit in time for tbo Now York morning papers) will contain, I judge, nothing very new or exciting but will ta'oa rovivv of the last four years, and rtnctctdly recommend tho octrines heretofore recommended hy him. It will I believe, contain a son Of text book of the political viowa that ho thinks should govern the policy of tbo country in future. Tho Treasury report, I apprehend, will mako no unexpected or very important diiclosurei. It will nrcbablv reveal the fact, thnt Unpin ru,,.i ....

I ilo not ibitik bo will adopt the penny system of Great liritain, butsudi a reduction as will tnako the tarriffon letters not to ex ceed 5, 10 and 13 cents each. I do no , however, pro-fw-ss 1 1 h ivo any poiitit knowledge In the maltirs 1 have spoken of i but being n VimAe?, asmy grand father came from Karinington, Connccti nit I thought I hid a right to guess, af cr having made a little pre litnir.ary inquiry. THE REVENUE. Tho amount of Treasury Notes, outstanding at tho present tiino is not far from 85,000,000, and tho revenue nf the government arising from tho customs, and tho receipts of the public laud sales is barely sufficient to meet its current ex penses. The Post Office Department is under stood to be in an embarrassed condition through the mismanagement of Amos Kendall, the re- venue derived from its receipts being inadequate ta pay its expenses. It is manifest therefore that sonic speedy incisure must be adopted by Congress to save tho Government from embar rassment and disgrace. To effect this end, a mollification of tho tariff' would seem to be the most judicious measure, and such a modification as will increase the duties on articles similar lo those which are the growth or production of our own soil, and on articles of luxury, such as w nos, silks, and the finer fa brics of cotton anil woo', which arc worn prin cipally by those who are in good circumstance. Hy a moderate increase of the tariff', in th:s manner, a sufficient revenue would be raised to pay off'tbc National Debt which Mr. Van Iluren Ins incurred, and to meet all the necessary ex penses of Government under an economical nil ministration. And the people will have the ad ditional satisfaction of knowing that by such a measure ihe'rown manufactures will bo enabled to gain so firm a footing, that they will hcrcaf tcr defy all competition from abroad. Tn.y Whin. NEW HAMPSHIRE SENATOR. Concord, Dec. 2. At H o'clock this after noon, Hon. Levi Woodduky, Secretary of the ''reasury, was, on (he part of the Mouse of Re presentative, cho.-cn Senator in Congress for 0 years, from the -1th March, 1811, in place if Hon. Henry IIuiidahd, whose term of service will them expire. 7'he Senate itnmediate'y af terwards concurred in the e'ection by the House 7 to 5. In the House, Mr. Woodbury received 115 votes, Gen. James Wilson 72, and there wcro from 10 to 15 scattering. In reference to this election the Boston Atlas holds the following language : "Mr. Woodbury, i i a resident of the District of Columbia, and has been such for many years. He is not, and has not been for eight years, an inhabitant of New Hampshire. He is, there fore, ineligible, and has no right to take his scat in the Senate of the United States on the Fourth of March next. That an inhabitant of Washing- ton is not eligible to Congress has already been decided, once in the case of John Bailey, who was cliocn a member of the House, from the county of Norfolk, in this State, when an in habitant of the District of Columbia, and refused aseat; and again in tho case of Mr. Grundy,1 who, when elected to the Senate from Tennes see, was conijiullcil tu iturn to tli.a Stnto, in order to gain a residence, and was then elected a second time. There conscquentlv has been no legally elected Senator chosen in the place of IMr. Hubbard, and we trust until that is done no one will be permitted to take his scat. NORTH CAROLINA. Whig U. S.

VIRGINIA LEGISLATURE. Riciimonii, Dec. 2. Valentine W. Southall, r.-q., was ycslvrday elected Speaker of the House of Dele- times. Air. oouthall was nominated m a very neat speech, by bis colleague, Mr. Coles. Mr. Gojde, of .vii'cKIcntnirt', was put m nomination lor the same ot lice, by Gen. Chapman.

The Native American printing office was destroyed a few days since, anil another fire broke out in a different section of the city the same night. The public build ings aro in an exposed situation. Guilt is doubt less now covered up and concealed. If, by any possible contingency, it should como to light, it would causo exposure of individuals, and blast the character of some of tho head men of the administration. Every one remembers the fate of tho Treasury Department and tho General Post Office. Both of them wore destroyed by lire. How it originated was nover known. Perhaps it never will be. Sufficient has been ascertained to confirm tbo suspicion that thoro was villain at tho bottom of it. That it cov ered up guilt and peculation which would have oxploden the whole loco foo party, there is no doubt. It becomes tho Whigs at Wash ngton to look out to keep nn cyo upon incoudiaries, nnd when tho cry of "firo" is hoard, to rush to tho Public Buildings. 7 roy jlfaiV. GENERAL HARRISON. Frankfort, (Ky.)

Tbopress cs which always bad most to say infivorof prompt and mill, s lating submission to tbo will of tho major ity, and of tlio patriotism and intelligence of tbo great body or our electors, now ring with tbo foulest im putations upon their integrity, and proclaim "war to llioliinfo against tho candidates who have just receiv ed fourJlflhs of tbo electoral votes. Tho latest spec imen of this spirit wo find copied from tho St. Joseph Tunes. That paper thus notices tbo re-nlt of election: "Tho game is up it is useless to fall back from in dividual States, upon the in'e'igencc, tho reason Ibo sober judgment of tbo mass the people are drunk, uiuL-r-iiiao. nnu incir oioaled countanecs peering throuch tho cracks of lop cabins, give no hope for the salvation of tlio country " There is " Domooiaey" for you !

S jiiio turned to gaz -others just cast an cyo And s un withdrew it, as 'tvvuro in "ontempt . G een pring, nnd flowery stminn r autumn brown, And froMy winter came, nnd went, and came, And sill, through all tbo srasoiiM of two years. In par , in city, yea, nt loulsand balls The bat was worn and borne. .... My company was shunned I wasnlono ! Nono would assc-ci ito vvi h such a bat Friendship itself proved faithless for a hat. Sho th it i bved, within whoso gt-ntK1 hre.ist I treasured up my heart, looked cold as dea b Love'.- fires went out extinguished by a hat. Yen, dogs, deceived hy instinct's dubious ray, Fixing their swart ulareon my ra 'ecd hat, Mistook mc for a bectrar, and they barked. Thus women, men. friends, strangers, lover, dogs One thought pervaded all it was my bat. Few men comparatively few appreciate the importance of a hat. Give a man a neatly p-oportioned tidy hat, and it matters little what else he has he is pritnafacia respectable ; but cover his caput with a rusty grca-y slouched old ha', a id all the rest is mere prunella broadcloth an I silk, Wellingtons and fine linen, are of no avail. His respectability, to say the least, is tpaes'ionablc ! Hut this is not the season to write a homily on tine hats, and we will merely relate what we saw a man do with an old one the other day. lie was a small, spare man, about thirty-five, and decently dressed with tho exception of a most ungracious looking old hat. We had no ticed him several times in the street that morn ing. His countenance was haggard and care worn, his step hurried, and his whole appearance indicated a mind diseased. Now bo halted paused and then went on. Occasionally lift ting his eye from the ground, ho cast a furtive glance at the passer by and wc could al most hear him mutter, "that's an old ac quaintance, out lie tion t recognize me. Just at this m. uncut, a boy on the side walk struck up, nt the top of his voice : " When this old hat was new, five hundred yars ago"! Our friend for such we must call him started, blushed, pulled down his brim, ami passed on. Ho however spoke to no one, and indeed few observed him at all. But, for the li c of us, wc could not help getting interested in him. Prce- emly be passed our ofi'iee, and halted. He cast his cyo lip CohegC-st. ami for n moioont mir- veyed the glistening dome of the L'university turned a discon.-olato glance at the black waves tint lashed the shore bilow hint then stcping to tlio other side of the street, anil ranging his eye along our block, as it rested on the new section east of us, suddctilv ho darted in ! We waited the issue. In a short time he re- appeared; but altogether an alter'il man. Ho had exchanged his old hat for a new "otter" his bead was up, and his countenance was cheer ful. The lir.t man he met gave him a cordial shake by the hand, and it was e.-.dent that "confidence" was measurably restored, on all sides. Presently ho called upon us to inquire the price of advertising paid a small bill at Moody's, bought a coats cloth at Lyman & Cole's, a Hoa at Hickok &. Catlin's, jewelry at Pang- born and Brinsmaid's, nails and glass at Strongs', opened an account at Peck's, did business at tho Bank, dined at Howard's, and the last wo saw of Ir'm, ho was smoking his cigar and discussing the probabilities as to the next cabinet. Whence he came, or whither he went, we know not. But of this we are certain : should he ever write thp history of an Old Hat, he will declare, with the lucklcns wight we hive quoted above Friends once moro Greeted my digits with the wonted squeeze: Once moro I went my way, along, along, A id plucked iv wondering gaze ; tlio hind of scorn With its annoying finger, men, nml dogs, less Once more grew p) nlles , jo elei-s. laughless, growl Anil nt last, not hnst of res.-uel hi -ssings, love, Lovi smiled on me again, when I assumed A brnu new "otter" of the Albert mould. In the meanwhile we draw this inference that the character of a man's hat is not exactly the true test of his respectability; but, tint it is inivpedient to strain "public confidence" too hard, when fins caps aro so plenty and cheap.
