It ecmcd to him, however, that tho largo amount of its bills in circulation was an argument ngainst reducing Its capital stock. Mr Dillingham explained the amount in circulation, hu nltii.linr In llm f-.nf ll.nl this bank paid a great proportion of the pensioners of ' omie, loruie uenerni government, in their own bills, or in specie when demanded. Deducting this amount, and tho circulation was less than of many etherof our banks. Por tho redemption of its bills ample bonds and ample funds were provided.

Adj. HOUSE -Prayer by tho Rev. Mr Scott. Listing Laic. The bill in addition to the listing law was read the second time, when Mr Rice moved to put the maximum of assessment of faculty at $30 instead of S58 : adopted. Mr Premiss moved to add "merchants" for assessment of faculty: rejectid. Mr Vilas said ho voted for ths law of "last year, as it passed the House, and wasin favor of the facnliv tax to a reasonable extent j he was also in favor of omaot tne provisions ot tins bill) but for various reasons he must opposo it, and among them was the unreasonable increase of tho assessment on polls and faculty. Ha believed that 81 was euffinsnt for tho poll tax. Mr Van Sicklcn concurred in theso objections and added others, viz. that no new apprais-d of property was to be mado under four years, leaving the people for that length of time subjected to the unequal and onerous appraisal made tho prcsentycar j also that while debts wero to be deducted from personal prop, rty, none were to be mado from real estate, lie aaid the bill was a mere salvo for the most unjust fea tures of the existing low. Mr Pettibone stated difficulties in the practical ope ration of the bill, especially in reference to taxes for the. repair of school-houses: he thought no s ich tax could bt raised. Mr P. subsequently moved an amendment requiring a new appraisal of reaicatato in the several school districts in 1813. Mr Cobb of S. moved an amendment confining the eductions for military service, to those rcsidin" in this atate: adopted. Mr Keith moved to rsduc the polls frsm 83 to 92 : adopted. Mr Shofter moved to strike out the minimum of assessments for faculty, remarking that if a lawyer was found to have no faculty, ho ought not to bo as etsed: rejected. Mr S. then sjid he was still for the bill, on the ground that he hoped, from the repre sentations and expectations ot tho friends of this bill, that it would do sumegood; but fioin tho haste with which the bill was passed, he could have no op- Eortunity for deliberately examining it. So far as ho ad noticed, he thought it an improvement, but he had his fears that thero might be sad mistakes in it. Mr Vilas said the views expressed by the gentleman from Townshend would lead him to vote ngainst ths bill. Mr Shnfier responded. .Mr Cnnfield said the complaint of hurrying this bill was not well founded : it had been well considered. Mr Dcnnison moved an amendment, in the exemption for military services, to correspond with the reduction made on the polls : adopted. Mr Noyes moved to re-commit : sapported by Messrs Noyes and Van Sicklcn, opposed by Messrs Billings, Canfield and Barton, and nogalited. Mr Field moved an amendment confining the de ductions for military strvice to thoso who are obliged by law to do military duty : supported by Mr Cush man and adopted. Mr Cushman moved to strike out the St exemption of field and BtafTofficers for furnishing horse for mili tary sirviccj he was for putting tho ollicers and sol diers on an equal fooling.

Mr Canfield said the bill had been some lime in the hands of every member, and had undoubtedly been well examined. 1 1 could not be expected, even after amendments, that all will bo satisfied. Ilo was wil ling to'take tho lull as it was, satisfied that in en deavoring to amend it, it would bo rendered worse than it is. MrViIassaid ho really wished time to examine the bill, to satisfy himself upon it, and if pressed to vote now, ho must go against the bill. Mr t-'ushmnn taid that a very few amendments, in addition lo thoso mide by tho House this mornin", would render the bill acceptable. " Mr Pettibone said be wns anxious to make a thor ough examination oi the bill, but there was evidently no lime for that. Ho saw in it ono feature which would lead him to support it : it required the cuiol led inihlin to come out but once a year. On that sin defeature he was willing to voto for thebili and go heme : his constituents would care little ubout the remainder of the G? pages, 60 long os they wcro re lieved Irom the burdens underwluch they had so long groaned. He was opposed lo nil amendments, belie" ving il safest to take the bill as it is. Mr. Davis of N, couldn't agree with his friend from Manchester, who for a singlo drop of honey, would toko a pint of wormwood. Mr Pettibone We have had the wormwood for three ycats , weare notnfraid of that.

Three motions lo adjourn were negotived, when ths question recurred on the 3d reading of tho bill. Mr. Henry said lis was in favor of a survey, but would not vote for this bill, on the ground lliat it was dependent on the land'fund. If placed upon money in the treasury ho would vote for it. Mr. Wnrdner said he could not voto for tho bill, if it mado n direct draft upon the treasury : ho sustained it because the money came from precisely the right source, and the survey would not be a burden upon the stale.

THE LEGISLATURE. This body adjourned, without day, at fivo o'clock on Monday morning, the resolution fixing upon Wednesday for the session to terminato having been received by a concur- ent voto of tho two Houses. In accordance with our apprehensions, the Sill for a Geo logical snrvey oftho State, which passed tlio Scnato last week by so largo a majority, was defeated in tho House of Representatives. For tins unfortunate result wo aro indebted to tho bad management of some of tho friends ofthe Bill, to the clamor of Loco Foco dem agogues, and lo tho false and niggardly no tions of economy which infest tho sapient noddles of some of the weaker brethren in our own ranks. Tho more intelligent mem bers of both parties in tho Houso were deci dedly and stronely in favor of survey. But tlio narrow-minded and illiberal, which class unfortunately comprised this year a large majority ofthe Loco members, and, wo re gret to say it, a very respectable numerical minority of the Whigs, went point blank against it, ns they always go against any measure for the improvement of tho State, which involves an expenditure of dollars and cents. The Bills for tho relief of our Uni versity, and for tho establishment of a board of Education, both of which had passed the Senate independent of party divisions, met the same fate in tho Houso of Representa tives, which had befallen the scheme fur a Geological survey. Wo intend soon to en ter upon the discussion of tho subjects in our columns and to call the calm and dispassion ate attention of tho pcoplo to their para mount importance both to tho moral and physical property of our State. For tho present wo can only express our regret at their ill success in tho Houso of Representa tives and hopo a better destiny may await them hereafter. But, notwithstanding tho shameful defeat of theso measures, tho Legislature Iiavo pas sed two or threo Bills of great importance, and which, wo have no doubt, will bo highly beneficial to the Stato in their practical re sults. Wo allude particularly to the Militia Bill and the Bill to sccuro a moro perfect accountability of public officers. We Iiavo not spaco at present to givo tho particular provisions of these two Bills, but shall refer to the subject again, and enter into a moro intricate discussion of them. On tho last day of tho Session, another Bill was passed also', at which, wo Iiavo no doubt many iff our readers will bo pleased; we mean the Bill to pay tho Rev. Zapock Thompson of this town, tho sum of five hun dred dollars, for his services in preparing that excellent and valuable work the natu ral, civil, and statistical history ofthe Slate. Tho passago of this Bill will bo as gratify ing to Mr. Thompson as it was creditable to the Legislature. NEW YORK ELECTION.

Our returns nro as yet incom plete ; but what wo Iiavo is somewhat akin to thoso of New York, and il is more than probable that Morton is elected Governor. The Post says: "Tho aggregate voto of last year in tho Stato was 111,062, of which Davis had 55,974 ; Morton, 51.3GG ; aboli tion and scattering, 3,721. Tlio Majority ofDnvis over nil was 880. Tlio majority over Norton, of Davis and scattering, 8,328, votes, which Morton must gain to be elected. As far as hoard from this gain lias boon mado, and if the rest of tho stato lias done as well for us, Marcus Morton has a majority over all others I" NEW ASPECTS. Tho recent elections in Ohio and New York seem to have inspired tho locofoco party with the strange hopn of again rallying on Mr. Van Burcn, for President. Mr. Bon- ton, it will bo recollected,somc twelve months since, proclaimed his adhesion to Mr. Van Burcn, and within a fuw days tho Globe, which is his acknowledged mouth-piece, has commenced a furious attack upon Tyler's administration, and gives at length the roa- sons why tho democracy must havo nothing lo do with it. Wo quoto tho following, as a specimen of tho wholosalo assault : The Democratic parlv does not, and cannot, op- provo llio general course of Air. Tyler s administra tion, uiinvuii u inuy sanction some oi inc acts oi mat nentlcman sucli as tho vetoes of tbo bank, nnd what is called 'the little tariffbill.' These were, undoubted ly, highly agrceablo lo that party (but tho grounds on which they wcro based were not equally satisfac tory. The Democratic party cannot forget that Air. Tyler would havo approved tho bill establishing a Hank of the United Stales, but fot the clause civim! it the absolute rmht to intrudo branches in'o the Sinte. without their consents nor that he approved the bill for the distribution of the public lands, and on ly incidentally dissentinc from it afterwords, on the ground that it violated a provision that it should not iunec.iicci lieu inc necessities ui uie uoverumcni renuircd a hmhcrdutv than twentv tier cent, on for eign importalions; nor that be precipitately gave his assent to the repeal of thoindenendent trcasurv: nor tnai lie approved an intainous, demoralizing bankrupt law; nor that he promised tho inlerfcicnco of the troops of the United States, for Iho nurnoso of arres ting the extension of tho rights of siillrage in Rhode island. Above all, tncy cannot tan to remember thai .nr. i yler nas funetiu'ieu a land bill more obnox ious, bvfar. thnn that which ho vetoed i nnd lliat III r. --cim-a's exertions m nrocurmn- llm nnssrin-n nf ilmi hill arc about to be rewarded by a scat in tho Cabinet. i.tiBtiy, now can inc nemocrniic party tic, or be come, "ono and indivisible" with tho "friends of Air.

Walpoi.b'b execrable exchequer system, with debt, paper money, and corrrplion in its train 1" This the Mudisonian resents with becom ing indignation, and manifests' very little dis position to acquiesce in this arrangement. After moro than insinuating that tho Globo has seen its best days, and hitting Benton a severe gird under the fifth rib, tho Madiso nian thus alludes to Mr. Van Burcn's "grace ful retirement." As for signing tho repeal of tlio Sub Treasury, the address of the New York Democratic Stato Convention, this fall, sub stantially acknowledges that it was condemn ed by the People. Tho address compli ments Mr. Van Buren, and very properly, on his "graceful retirement" in obedience to tho voice of a majority of the People. It is a cardinal principle of Democracy that the majority shall bo obeyed. Now, no ono will deny that the repeal of tho Sub-Treasury was openly and universally advocated by the victorious party during tho campaign of 1840. In truth, Mr. Van Bttren's defeat was mainly owing to tho unpopularity ofthe Sub Treasury. It furnished a sound cur rency for the office-holders, but nothing for the People not even an "in-ci-den-tal-ly." Mr. Benton is in favor of incidental pro tection to the People from a Tariff on the samo principle, why should not the Govern ment givo the People a sound currency "in-ci-den-tal-ly," if you pleaso 1 Tins thu Exchequer will do. Wo think the Sub-Treasury men will prefer tho Excheq uer to a United Slates Bank, and tho Uni ted States Bank men will prefer it to tho Sub Treasury. Wo have taken our ground, and intend to maintain it. Duwitt Clinton Clark, of Brandon, has been appointed Major General in Chief of tho Vt. Militia. A very good appointment. John C. Colt.

Theso sale comprised 1512 barrels of American beef, 219'J barrels American pork, 321 barrels American hams, C9 1 barrels Canadian pork, and 35 barrels Canadian beef, which exci ted considerable interest and curiosity.
