I'RI DAY MOHNIN O, DECEMHER 18, 19 10. COMMON SCHOOLS. It is well known that our schools aro defec tive and need improvement. In order to this, - they should receive more attention ; they should be tho caro of every man who means to ho a practical republican, and wishes to perpetuate our free institutions. Hut is it so 1 Is it not a melancholy truth, that, in too many instances, our scools aro wholly neglected, or made a sec ondary object 1 This ought not to bo. The best way to correct any evil, is to learn the facts in the case. To tnako a beginning, it has been thought advisable to have moro perfect returns of tho children. The law provides that tho clerks in each school district shall ascertain and make a list annually of the children which may be in his district, on the first day of January, be tween the ages of four and eighteen, with the names of the heads of families', and the number of children in each. To do this correctly, the names of the children should be given, and their ages : but this is too often omitted, and mistakes and frauds aro occasioned by it. It would great ly facilitate the object, if all the clerks would take their lists on the same day ; and tho clerks in tho town of fttirlington are particularly re quested to do that service on the first day cf January. To aid them, blanks aro prepared, and are in the hands of Mr. C. Adam?, who will give them all the aid in his power, and explain eome points which cannot bo stated hero. The other towns in the county arc invited to take the Buhjcct of their schools into consideration, and, as far as practicable, to improve them. It is thought desirable to have the whole number of children in each town, the number of those who attend school, and, whether district or private, and the number of those who do not attend school, with the paiticular reason for the omis sion, in order that public measures may bo taken to correct the evil. THE MESSAGE. We have the pleasure of laying before our readers Mr. Van Huron's valedictory message to the two houses of Congress. We say valedictory as we presume lie will not attempt to imitate his "illustrious predecessor" in the matter of a farewell blessing. It is a cool dispassionate doc ument, betraying no irritation or fault-finding, and there is not the remotest allusion to the re cent election, or to the fact that he is about to retire from the chair of state. No one would imagine even from the tone of the message that Mi. Van Huron's political course was nearly run, or that a contest, scarcely equalled in tho history of the country, had just terminated. Tint, with the most stoical indifference, he wraps his mantle about him, and sits himself quietly down to 'bide the hour of his doom. This studied indifference or, in other words, contempt of the popular will however convenient it may be to the mere politician, in an emergency, but illy comports with the frank, enlarged, and liberal spirit that ought to characterize the chief magistrate ; and it hut too clearly indicates the true caliber of the man, while it bespeaks, in no equivocal terms, the deep mortification it was intended to hi 'c When the embryo cub-treasury was first shad owed before the American people, the fact that a ingle state, by an indirect expression of tho popular will, had indicated a disposition to sus tain it, wa deemed of sufficient importance to demand special mention in a communication to Congress; but now, after that measure has been deliberately passed upon by the whole country when nineteen of the twenty-six htatcs,by major ties never so large, have condemned both it, and its author the fact is passed over in contemptu ous silence, while the obnoxious measure is per tinaciously adhered to, and Congress besecched to lash it upon tho people, in spite of their lamentations! Let those who have rested their faith in Mr. Van Buren's professions of regard for the popular will reconcile these facts. Lot them contrast this course, with that prompt re cognition of the popular voice, on mere questions of policy that ingenuous frankness, which so pre-eminently characterizes the true republican ; and then say how much we have erred in representing him as a hollow hearted pretender who, from the habit of moulding and shaping public sentiment to suit his particular views, had learned to regard it with most sovereign contempt, when legitimately expressed. So far as the language of the message is con cerned, it is both respectful and dignified, and presents the affairs of the country in a concise and clear manner. The following synopsis mbraces its leading features. The tone of the Message is generally loco foco. It commences with stating t' at the na tion has avoided interference with the affairs of other countries, and by correct dealing has ac quired an honorable ctanding among the nations of the earth, most of whom seek our alliance, Nothing since the adjournment has occurred to disturb the harmony between us and other na tions. The northern boundary difficulties have been under discussion, only interrupted by the British minister referring to his government for further instructions. Hopes are expressed that the whole will be speedily settled. The three commissioners appointed by this government to view the disputed territory, will probably throw now light on tho subject. It is probablo that after some further investigation, the whole will he referred to some friendly power. Treaties have been made with Belgium, (in cludinK the settlement of some old questions) with Hannover and Portugal, and our relations remain good with all the other European powers A commissioner is now in Germany on the sub iect of the tobacco trade. The claims on Mexico arc under negociation The treaty with Brazil will expire in Decern her. 1841. Chili has agreed to indcmnily tl owners of the Macedonian, (1819) and other claims aro being pressed. The line between Texas and this country will be settled next season. The sound (!) condition of the national finan ccs is referred to with triumph. Tho distribution of the surplus revenue and tho reduction of tho tariff intnrfered with the miblic treasury trrcatly : yet all demands havo been promptly met, only four and a half millions of treasury notes bemt; now out. Tho government is complimented for main taining tho standard of currency. The indebtedness of tho States to foroign powers is mentioned as a reason why the citi rens of other nations may havo interfered with our domestic concern. Tho government owes nothing abroad, and is only response mr n rnnaU sum, borrowed for somo part of tho His. trict of Columbia. To keep clear of those mortifying positions, tho action of government must ho kept within bounds, nnd closo economy must bo consulted. Economy, it is stated, lias knn nilonted since 18S18. and tho only cxtraor- iinary expenditures have been those connected with tho Indians. In January tioxt, there will uo in the treasury, 1,500,000, enough, with or dinary income, to moot expenses. Tho sub-treasury is lauded, and a fow altera. tioiw in details hinted at. A few pages aro then devoted to arguments against a national bank and a national debt. Both have been nvnidnd. and a system of economy introduced in their place, (bo says tho message.) Reference is again made to the economy of the government and the system of specie payment, as tending to prevent the extent ofcvils felt by many indi viduals from excessive trade, &c. Reference is then made to the Indian disttir bailees, the state of the Navy, and Exploring Expedition. Mention is made that the Postmaster Gone ral has a proposition for lightening the mails, reducing postage, and insuring regularity of ser vice ; and in reference to the slave trade, it is suggested that our citizens bo forbidden to treat with the slave factories in Africa. It is not within our recollection that any pre vious message from a President has fallen so dead upon the public oar. It is hardly sought for few are inclined to read it and those who have, are inclined to say very little about it. CONGRESS. , . , . Washington, Dec. 7, 18-10.

C. Johnson, in reference lo abolition petitions, passed on the 23th of Juuuary last, and w Inch is in the follow ing words: Resolved, that upon the presentation of any memo rial or petition, praying for tho abolition of slavery or the slave tiade, in any district, territory, or state of the Union, and upon the presentation o'f nnv lcsolu tion or other paper touching that subject, ihe recep tion of such memorial, resolution or paper shall be considered as objected lo. and the nuc.st on of Sis m ccplion shall he laid on the table without debato or further action thereon.

This I do not believe. WEnxnn.iv, Dec. 9. The Sennto organized lo-dav. n siilliebnt number of members appearing to form "n quorum. The Clerk was uiiecieu id acquaint Hie House that the Senate was leady to proceed to business, and a committee wasappoinlcd to inform ihe President that they were ready to receive any communication ho might wish to make.

Mr. Hanks, of Virginia, expressed his regret that the meuibvr from Massachusetts should think it ne cessary again lo agitate a question which bad been disposed ol at Ilia last session ly a solemn vote, anil therefore renewed tho motion lo lav it on (he table.

The undersigned, being engaged in preparinc for publication, a new edition of his " Gazetecr of Vermont," iu connexion with the Natural and Civil History of the State, did, during the last prmg aud summer, besides visiting many parts personally, address circulars to postmasters, or others, in most of the towns, requesting an swers to such queries as would enable him to give a full topographical, historical and statisti cal account of tho towns, down to the present time. To some of these ho has received satis factory answers ; hut to far the greater part, no answers have boon returned. Anxious that all the towns should bo fully and correctly de scribed, he takes this method to invite attention to the subject ; and in case the persons to whom the circulars were addressed are unable to at tend to the business, he trusts that there arc persons in each town, who can and will furnish tho materials desired. In cases where tho early history and topography were correctly and fully given in the first edition, all that will bo neces sary to be furnished anew, will bo a continuation of the history down to the present time, and the present statistics. Persons furnishing an ac- count of their towns, will coutribute to render the work more useful and satisfactory, and will confer a favor on the public, and on the public's ery humble servant, Z.
