It is idle now to speculate, us a few days will put us in possession of the result. We shall not he surprised, however, should tho same listlesness on the part of the liigs.whicli has led to their defect else where, proeluce similar results here. There being no governor, congressional, or other general test, theelection hasof eoursc turned on local questions in many insUne.es, in de pendant of politics. COUNCIL OF CENSORS. This body has been fnr some time in ses sion at iMoutpelier, and have sent a commu nication to the legislature in which they de clare tho unconstitutionality of several sec tions of tho new militia law. The suctions al luded to are those providing fur the levying nnd collection of fines and forfeitures without the intervention of civil magistrates, or trial by jury. This the Council believe to be in viol, ition of that article of llie constitu tion which declars "lhat no person in this state can in any case be subjected to law martial or to any pains or penalties hy virtue of that law, except thoso employ ed in the army und the militia in ncluul service ;" and also in violation of another nered provision of that instrument, which declares, that in "all iiros.Tutions for criminal offences the "person accused shall have a right lo :t "speedy public trial by an impartial jury of tho country, without the unanimous consent "of which jury lie cannot he found guilty." The council recommend ihe election of County officers by the people of the sever al counties, except justices of the peace, whom it is proposed shall he elected by the towns. GOV. PAINE. Tho message our new Governor appears to have been everywhere well received. Thero was a degree of fearless posilivencss and point about it, which secured for it an attentive reading, and the soundness with which ils more impoilant topics weie dis cussed, has extorted enmme Dilution in al most every quarter. The following, from ihe New Hampshire Sentinel, will serve as a specimen of what we might copy ft oin almost every paper that has m.ide it tho subject of comment. "Governor of Vermont It was said tho nomination of Charles I'aine was unfortunate that he was not so popular as some other men but, to judge from Ins message to the Legislature, we shoufd say this was a fortunate noir.inatioii, and he can scarcely fail to become a popular Governor. If ttrengtb, good sense, and energy of purpose, are commendable qual tties, give us Charles I'aine. We refer more particularly to thu bold Ntaiiel he has taken on the great question of self protection, and tho en couragetnent of American industry the great whole, no comprising the vital intcresta of tu on ly States, to subserve the temporary, and after all but the imaginary interests of tho cotton planters of five or six States. Wo have made afew extracts. Head, men of New Hampshire! for your interests are, in reality, tho same, though Gov. Hill, and Gov. Page, and Governor Hubbard could never tuc it." MR. EWING'S SON. A story lias, Leon pictty freely circulated rec&ntiy, ui tier tho head of "Astounding Disclosures" charging that a son of Mr. Ewing, late Secretary of tho Treasury was paid some fifty thousand .dollars for negotia ting n million loan Tho whole slory is a sheer fabrication. Thu Madisouian, in al luding lo Ihe chargo, says : "lit contradict ing this charge, wo arc authorized to statu that, iho amount of loan effected hy Mr. P. I). Cu ing, was half n million of dollars, for which ho wns paid hy iho Treasury Depart ment ono twelfth of ono per cent. The u hub amount received by him therefore, in payment of his services, dwindles down to S416G6. This is the sum which lias been very unjustly magnified into thousands.'' THE BANKRUPT LAW. Wo havo duly published at large, with the other acts of tho late Session tho bc- neficicnt act establishing a system of Bank ruptcyj but either front its length and ils numerous and indispensable details, or from too cursory an examination of ils pro. visions, its principles appear lo ho, hy some, misapprehended. Therefore, having mot with tl o annexed brief but coniprc- htndtio explanation of tho principles of the act, wo have thought its insertion might bo accept able to many of our rcaderj. We find it in tho New York .'lmcricnn. The Bankrupt Law. This law seems to be misapprehended hy tinny ; and the attempts of some of our contemporaries to set Ihe pub lic right on tho subject have not been very suc cessful. If we understand tho provisions of the law correctly, the persons who come under its ope rations are divided into two classes, wlimtary anil involuntary. In tin) class of voluntary Banmtpts are in cluded "all persons whatsoever," rich or poor, merchant, trader, mechanic, farmer, laborer, &.c. without any reference to the amount of their indebtedness, proiiilid their debts shall not have been created by a defalcation as a public officer, or as executor, administrator, guardian, trustee, o- while acting in any other fiduciary capacity. SjcIi defaulters cannot have tho benefit of the law at all. In the class of involuntary Bankrupts are in cluded all "persons, being merchants, or using the trade of merchandise, all retailers of nur chandise, and all bankerf, factor.", brokers, under writers, or marine insurers, owing dMs to the amount tf not less than tieo thousand dollars," Who slllll LEAVE THE STATE WITH THE INTENT to DnntACD THEir. cueuitous, or shall take any other measures lo accomplish such a design. So that all debtors can xolunlarily tike the benefit oftho act, except dcfaultet-s and no one can be imolunlarily declared a bankrupt unless it is proved there is an intenti m to de fraud, and in such case it is confined to certain classes', who owe a certain amount of money, and the petition mutt be presented by one or more creditors, to whom is owing the sum ol live hundred dollar.-!. DE-SIGNS OF ENGLAND TO GET POSSES SION O ' THF. II.AND OF CUBA. Rumors continue to circulate of a des i;n on the part of Great Britain to go possession of thu Island offjubi.

When New Grenada and Venezuela declared their independence the Spanish General Morillo, offered liberty lo till slaves who would desert their patriot masters and join the royal army. Sn self defence the Patriots then offered liberty to all slaves who would join fAet'r armv. Of course most of tho male slaves j'oined one army or the oiuor, and the result was the entire abolition of slavery in ihosc provinces. Tho same policy was extended and slavery abolished in all the Spanish American pro vinces which had revolted. In Cuba and I'urln Kico the planters adhered to the des potism of ol I .Spain, anil cenlimted to pay large sums into thu Spanish treasury rather than by uniting with tho Patriots, to intro duce Revolutionary ideas which they saw must bo followed by the abolition of slavery. This explains tho steady loyalty of the Cu bans. England has probably long had an eye on tho rich and beautiful Island of Cuba, und been ready to get possession whenever a favorable opportunity occurred, nnd tho lime has been perhaps when the inhabitants would have preferred English to SpanMi masters ; but that time is now pt.sscd, for the aholitiun of slavery in (he British islands has caused thu planters of Cuba toionk with greater apprehension to ltritish rule than any other. They now look to the United States as tho only power that will protect them in their slave possession, and tho question may come up whether we shall interfere far that purpose. Wo apprehend this country woultl not be very well united in making war for such a purpose. CHINA AND ENGLAND. Tho war between tbeso two countries, se paratcd hy half tho circumference of the i globe, has, by the last accounts, commenced . in earnest ; and the first act oftho tragedy is tho slaughter of some, five thousand men 1 Tho vast distanco of tho sceno of waifarc from Europo and America, together with tho iiillucnco which England exercises over tho opinions of tho world, combined with other causes, has produced an apathy and si- wise iliflicult to explain. A mora unrighlco war was nrver wtigeu uy a Christian nation. nor ono less justifiable upon any principle of right, or by tho lav of nations. Tho caso is simply this: England whil0 she herself refuses to permit tho free expor tation ol the staffuf lifo to her starving po pulation, makes war on China for prohibiting the importation of a deadly poison, which, though a salutary medicine when discreetly administered, had, by excessive indulgence, becomo a scourge nnd a curse to the people of China. England, which abounds in tem perance societies, insists that she shall bo permitted to supply n means of intoxication to millions of people, which is more fatal in its cfTects than any compound ever invented by the perverted ingenuity of man, for liii own destruction. Tho Emperor of China, learning the havoc which this drug was ma king among his people, issued an edict against its further introduction ; and finding that this prohibition wns ineffectual, ordered an immense quantity, which had been smug gled in from the Ilritish possessions in India, in violation of this edict, to bo seized and destroyed. Had he not a right to do so by tho law of nations'! If any of our merchants, or any toreigu merchants, smuggles goods of the most useful kind into thu United States, or even attempts to enter them at less than their cost, they are seized and sold for tho buuefit of thu government, tlie informer and the custom-house officers. Neither England, nor any other power, is authorized lo inter fere, much less to make war on us for exer cising this acknowledged tight of every in dependent government, to regulate its own commerco within its own jurisdiction. By what right, then, docs she make war on China for a similar exercise of sovereignty T China is, in a great degree, a patriarchal government, i and the Emperor exercises over his subjects a despotic power, similar to that of the patriarchs of old over their families. His will is law, and so long as the people of China choose to submit to it, hchas tho same right to make internal commer cial regulations that our own free government possesses and exercises. But, say the advocates and defenders of tins unrighteous war, the Chinese are no bet ter than barbarians, and their government, by pursuing a different policy from that of Europe, has forfeiu-J all claiai to the piotoctiou of the law of nations. They say the same lliing of ttsj ihey c-1 us "outer b.irbarians," an I who shall decidej which is which? It is not long since England saiel pretty much the same of u, and treated us accordingly. Every body knows that arts, scien:e, liter iturc and civilization, nourished in China for centuries, while Eu rope was plunged in ignorance and barbar ism ; and every body knows that it has un dergone less change since that period than any country under the sun. But then they cat with chop-sticks, wear wooden shoes, and caps int :.nl of hats. Nay, worsn than all this by staying at home, livinc to them selves, an 1 delcininj; all political or com mercial connection with oilier nations, they have managed to preserve peace with all tho wot Id during long aires, in which civilized Europe has been deluded in blood. The silent acquiescence of the world in a principle which menaces the independence of every nation under the sun, is ono oftho ureal phenomena oftho times. Every bady must sec that this interference with the lucal regulations of China, if justified at all, will justify En;lanl in forcing her products' and manuftictures on every nation at the point of the bayonet. If she can oblige the Chinese to receive a deadly poison, she will obligo every nation, which h is not tho streniilh or spirit to resist her pretensions, to admit any thing else, on such terms as she may be pleased to dictate. .In obstinate adherence to their ancient manners, habiis and institutions, arc the lead ing characteristics of the Chinese govern ment and people. If they should perstvero in their opposition to the anogant preten sions of England, the effusion of human blood will bo terrible lo contemplate, and tlm aggregate ot human suffering incalculable. Should the English forces attempt to pene trate th j interior of the country, famine will b't added to war. Even in timo of peace, when the operations of agiiculluro are unin terrupted, its products are barely adequato lo the subsistence of tho hundreds of millions of inhabitants, notiv ithstanding thu simplicity oftheir mode of living. f interrupted in these peaceful pursuits, or driven from the cultivation oftheir fields, they cannot be sup plied elsewhere, for there is a superfluity nowhere. Tliey must perish by thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands. If they fight, it must be under disadvantages, that will produce such results as wo havo just seen at Canton, namely, a carango of five thousand men on ono side, and a loss of some forty on tho other. Have the advocates of tho independence of nations, the univers il philanthropists, and the peaco societies, raised their voices against this war, undertaken for the avowed purpose of forcing a poison upon a government by which it is strictly prohibited, and which must nece ssarily result, either in the estab lishment of a principle fatal lo ihe indepen dence of overy nation England is strong enough to bully or coerce, or in a long se ries of enrnago and sulfering, at which hu inanity shudders ? .
