It has been hinted that the Locos aro on the " still hunt " and enter tain the hope of catching us napping on tlio 12lh. If such is the fact, (and such things have happened) let every whig voter bo al his post mill do battle in the good cause from this time till the election is closed. Muko no allowances on account of tho overwhelming defeat of the enemy in September ; like eels, they sqtiiim after they are put into the fry ing pan, and therefore need to ho watched and taken euro of. Let us have 29,000 voles out for ilr. Cl.iy, and then let their " lllllt " bo " '" " r nnis,' i.ic, !" please. It's till one to us, if wo do our du ty, nntl go, every man of us TO THE POLLS. Thither every consideration of honor, duty and patriotism calls us impera tively. Whatever may be the course that our sister Slates may think proper to pursue, il is for iniconqiiored ami unswerving Whig Vermont to maintain her piotid position, without turning to tho right or left, nnd un

moved by every "wind of doctrine." In the daikest hours of tiitimphant .Tacksonism, Vermont kept the faith untarnished and pure, and when tho storm had blown over nnd the sunlight of political Until again dawned on tho nation, Iter banner it was, that foremost in the onset, led on thu truops of freedom to battle and to victory. Whatever then may bo the issue of this momentous tiiul, let us seo to it that the Whig firo burns brightly among our hills, ready, if victory should fail to crown our of. foils now, to reliinio tho extinguished torches of nor sister States, when another day of conflict shall arrive. Wu owo it to ourselves, to our history, lo the causuofgood government, to rally with determined ener gy at the potls on tho 12th of November, and roll up a triumphant majority for Clay, Fic linghuysen and the Constitution. Let it not be supposed that we doubt the issue. Wo do not. We cannot permit our selves to doubt the result of a trial beforo thu American people between Clay and Polk, between Whig principles and Lncofoco prin ciples. We have elsewhere given our belief as to the details of tho result. Hut we wish only to urgo thu consideration that tec ought not to bo intlucnced in our vote by whatever may happen in other States of tho confede racv. TO THE POLLS THEN, VER iMONTERS ! TO THE POLLS ! ! CALCULATION. Mr. C iv and Mr. l illmoro will cross Cayuga bridge with 15,000 majority, and il Silas and Polk can rake up as much as that on thu East sido they will do boiler than any body believes they can, unless limy get at least three thousand majority in the Cily nnd County of Now Yoik. Whether such thing can bo dono or not, must bu decided by the result of tho Locofoco fiauds which aro on foot there. A lair ligiil will give us 1000 majority in the city and county, and of course settle the preponderance in tho state A few spoonies, misled by Argus bragging and Plebeian bluster, have bet on 10,000 for Polk. A fow days will show these gentry that they havo pinned their faith on poor teachers. Our own opinion is that the ma jority either wny on Governor in New York, will not much exceed five thousand, though on President it will probably go higher. Wo ask ton thousand plurality for Mr. Clay, i nd can't takoless till tho votes are counted I'coplo talk about majorities for this man or tint, win n it ispr' jb'. lint in half tlm northern states no man will gut a majority at all, A plurality elects tho electors in most of tlm Stilton, nnd when people speak of ma jorities they mean over the principal oppos ing candidate, nntl not over nil. Ry tho way, speaking of Now York city reminds tis that tho Plebeian tins just found out nntl begun to acknowledge that Mr. Clay is not so bad an enemy of naturalized citi zens, but on tlio contrary, nfter nil the slan ders of Locofocoisni on that head thesn ma ny years, ho is, s iys tho Plebeian, quitn nn ndvocato of tho rights nntl privileges of for eigners. This sudden change in tho spirit of the Plebeian's dream, has of course no con nection with tlio existence of thosoitgly cus tomers, the "democratic natives" who bother that paper nnd its brethren so sadly 1 Oh no I of course not ! It is only that the Plebeian is a little pricked in its tender con science nbotit tho wrong it has dono Mr. Clay ! Good soul I Mr. Clay ought to feel grateful ! Doubtless he docs, nnd it may bo that such tardy justice rendered at a timo which makes its appearance seem so disin terested, will do him great good among the naturalized citizens. The Plebeian certain ly must havo intended it so, and wo ore obliged to him for his kindness. Next week we shall learn what luck Mr, Slamm has had in thridding his way througl the hot ploughshares. Wo aro afraid wo shall have a rueful account of burnt hoofs. THE BEGINNING OF THE END. Tho groat battlo is no longer future, but present. To-day is the timo of the first on set, and the shock of the conflict mav bo heard among tho heavy columns of Pennsyl vania and Ohio. In one event this day's doings will be decisive of tho result. If, as wo firmly believe, thu State of Pennsylva ilia casts her (doctoral vote lor Mr. Clay, tho wink is done, and tlio struggle over. If, however, she shall prove that she has forgot ten lier tuny ami Her interests, and given her weight lo the sc. do of fine trade, annex iliou nntl l.iho uYmnrrnrv, we shall thru turn with hope and confidence lo the mighty strife pf I ucsd.iy next, when New Yntk de dares her preference helwnen the candidates ofi'eied to tho choice of tho nation. Upon these States together, bangs the issue of the battle, and wc uiu-iu-tho midst of the solemn decision. lo-niglil, in our opinion, thu Union, by tho casting vole of Pennsylvania will havo sot tho seal of its reprobation upon iho disgraceful scenes enacted at Baltimore on tho 29th of May, nnd washed its hands of II participation in the finud there attempted to be palmed upon the people. It will have announced its determination to reward with its highest honor tho great statesman, who in thu dark hour of trial and difficulty, was the main pillar of its hope, the strength and support of its victorious arm : the statesman who from thence hitherto has made his conn try's weal his guiding star, and '"ho, more all other living men, has contributed to extend the fame of his native land through out thu world, and to nerve the arm of strug gling freedom in every climo under the sun With him Las our national brad, wo 'give mo woild nssiirancn of a man" ; man whom thev know and honor none the more for tho possession of official station a man whoso name presents itself first of all lo the memory of him who turns his eyes westward to our glorious land, in search of those among tho living who " weio not born to die." Our next paper will probably givo our readers iho grand result of thu conflict. Enough returns will probably como in from New Yoik and Pennsylvania to show wheth er wu aro to bo blessed with the joyous lea h iliou of our hopes, or bo defeated and dis appointed. In iho meantime lot our readers keep as cool as possible, and await the ver dict of tho grand Inquest. HOPEFUL CASE. The " Coon Hunter " a little six by eight sliooiing-iroii printed at Woodstock hy the gifted Charles Grenville Eastman, and filled with small wads and mustard seed, after ex horting its victorious brethren to get their Polk votes ready against tho I2thof Noveni her. says " the only thing then remaining to bo done, is to put 24,000 of them into tho ballot box " I If that remaining thing is n't a tough job fur Polkatery in Vermont, then wo are no judge. Al thu late election that hopeful par ly polled u little over twenty thousand voles with tho name of Daniel Kellogg, a resident of Vermont nt their must head. It is now given them to put in nearly four thousand more voles lor a free trade, ami tariff, pro slavery, annexation, small pntntoo locofoco away down in Tenncsseo, where by two sue ccssivo verdicts, the peoplo who knew him best declared him to bo no fit man for Gov ernor of a Slalo ! Locofocos of Vermont this is your stint, this your labor; and only twelve days given you to do it in ! With majority against you of between thirteen and fourteen thousand, you arc requited loin ciease your vote about fourteen per cent ! You will then, if you are so lucky as lo suc ceed, ciime within four thousand of Govern or Slide's vole! Veiily, llio prospect is cheering nnd wo can Wit wish you joy of it. MR. BIRNEY.

Birney the Liheity candidate for President, lecturing in n " Young Hickory Cabin " looks queer enough, especially nfter nil the grief that has been poured out because the circumstances of his nomination hy tlio Locos of Saginaw, Michigan, wcro publish ed nnd commented on by the Whig press. Wo conless our surprise at this, and wo call attention to tho fart that Birney in his speech there admits that ho was nominated at u reg ular Locofoco convention, and that tho story so industriously circulated by tlio Locos, that the nomination was brought about by Whig management, is merely a lie.

Pursuant to previous notice, a meeting of citizens was held on Saturday last, lolioar Ihu report of llio Engineer employed to sur vey tho roulefrnni Underbill across tho Green Mountain to Stowe. After being duly or ganized. Hon. Wm. A. Gntswoi.ii in the chair, the Surveyor made his report as fol lows : Tho following Iteport is submitted nt (he- remiest of the Itond Cotmiuliec : An examination w-ns mmln i,-nt, il... . r Iclermintn'' tlio feasibility of n rnul ul,.l, min onen n tnoro direct commumrniirm l,,,i,...., ,!. ..,,- cm declivity uf.Msnsn-.ld, with the mijiccut country, nml Itnrllltntnn. , t tin .-l.. .1. ? f tin- valley, fechn? tho nccesily of such a communi cation, proposed nnktntra road to lend from the town ol Slnwo through Mansfield lo tho settlements in Un derbill, upon Iho west side of the mountain. Tho roan was constructed, Lut rrom iho little attention paid to selecting the most feasible location, Ihe erodes wcro so steep as to render it quito impracticable for tho pasai;o of loaded carriage'!. Tins load has grown up with in second growih of timber, nnd Iho object for which it was undo is still unaccomplished, only so far as it Ins furnished n path for Ihu towns men u,.,ii timer mie 01 mo mountain to pa-s nnd re pass on foot. Commencing nt Stevens' .Mill, nbout two miles cast of Union Villnee, tho 'old road' runs mtitliwist nearly parallel to, nnd distant two miles from, the southern spot of Iho 'Nose.' It follows tho summit or a ridsc two miles, which is from two to three hundred feet ahovo tho branches of llrown's river, upon either side of it. The first mile it attains tin (Icvolion of G30 net, by erodes varying from a lc,.v,''Ll? 6 0 ,ccl m,le- Tluro ' ""m a descent orlOO feet m EO rods, from which point it rises unin terruptedly to the summit, which is 900 feet above tlio mm. I o the cast, tho descent to thn (In is nt the rate of nearly 1,000 feet to ihe mile. Tho great disparity which characterizes Ihe grades tliroiighuit Iho road, rendered it quite unfeasible, white llio elevation to bo overcome would prove no obstacle to iho construction of a good road, were it so located that the grades might be uniformly distrib uted through its whole cxlcut. With ibis object in view, n second route was examined, wliii h, commen cing nt the same point, and keeping in tho volley be low Die obi road, gained the summit nt tho "lea House,' 200 feet below iho other road, hy ono uni form rade of 20 feet to the mile.

From this point Iho descent is very gradual lo tho town of Stowc. The fu st nh'tnclo appears at the summit, where tho passage through the Notch is obstructed by roclis de tached from a perpendicular ledge upon the South. They have accumulated in this narrow dc hie until tho ileccni to iho first Hat for 40 rods, is D00 feel to tho mile. This mav be ovircnnio bv an excavation in the r ii ks i f "0 f ct in length by 23 feel in depih. By 'mis dm i. iiliiiig ihe elevation nt ibis point from 115 feet to t'Ofeet, rind extending tlio grade from 40 to 60 rods, the dceent will bo reduced to 10 feet to ihe mile, which fills within the grades of mnnv roads in New Kiigland. The amount of excavation will not exceed 720 cubic yards which may be lemoveil to form llie road below for $00.

Mr. Renedict brought nwav from tl.o mountain specimens of Granite, some of which he polished, and may be seen at his office or at the store of Mr. S. E. Howard. This rock ahaunds, and can bo obtained at the foot of the mountain on this' side in any qu itilities wanted for building, thus saving forty miles of land carriage on that brought from the present quarries. It is of he dark and best variety of Granite. Various enquiries wero made of the sur veyor by members of llie meeting, the answers to which served lo elucidate his report nnd to show the feasibility of ihe roule. With regard to the road lo be made either way from llio Notch, ho was asked, what would bo the expense of making ? His an swer wa,lliu usual expense of a road through the woods wheio the oh.sti unions are few, which he regarded as S2,o0 per rod. He was asked if in computing llie grade willi Main St. in Iiurlington, he referred to the street as il is, interrupted by tho hollow, or supposing it a regular rise. His answer was not as it is, but supposing ihe ascent to be regular, thu ascent of the mountain being re markably even. He was inquired of, as to tho nature of the soil, and replied that it was well calculated for a good and dry road. With regard to tho rocks to bo excavated at the Notch, ho was asked if ihey were solid or loose. Ho replied that they were loose, and in twn parcels, thus facilitating their re moval when broken up. A blast put into a largo rock threw it into pieces, showing that gun powder can bo used in breaking them up to great advantage. Ho was asked how this routo would compare witli others across the Greon Mountains for difficulty, and answer ed that he regarded it as the easiest of any within liis knowledge and that he could hard ly conceivo of an easier route and get crow tho mountain, nnd for beauty and romanco it was not equalled. Thus it aiinenrs that bv making four nnr! - one half miles of road, the whole valley lying east of Mansfield mountain may be brought into llio neighborhood of the Lake, anj Stowe and oilier towns which aro now about ns unknown to tho inhabitants of Burlington as the far west, may beconio us near and well known as Georgia on the North, or Vergennes on the South, places lying as far oil", and with. which wu are all familiarly ac quainted. The committee referred to in the second resolution, it is understood, will, be foro long, bo called together, and it is hoped that they will have well considered what to do and hit on tho best plan for raising tho means to mako a first raloTurnpiko road, which, when mado will bo the chosen route to Bur lington ol the wholo country to bo accommo dated by it.
