Bui the inquiry at onco arises how came llieso letters in tho hands of M'Keliziet Hoyl, it seems, was in tho habit of keeping his public nnd nrivale nanera nil imretlinr and probably left these in the Custom House when he was removed. Has Mr. Van Ness availed himself of this oportunily of paying his compliments to these quondom friends t There has been no love lost between them for a long time ; and the lute removal of the ox-Minister from the Custom House seems to havo opened all tho bile-ducts of a gall o'crcharged with bitterness. Whatever may bu thought of the morality of lira thing, the retribution is a terrible ono. AGRICULTURAL FAIR. The annunl Fair of the Chittenden Coun ty Agricultural Society held at this place last week, has, wo believe, fully equalled the ex pectations of its friends. The assemblage was large and respectable, and testified a deep interest in tho occasion and its objects. The clouds, which for n day or two previous had given marked indications of their cold water origin and of a " power behind the throne," bridled up on Wednesday morning, as il a iv 11 re of the proprieties of tho occa sion ; old Boreas lulled himself to sleep ; and on Thursday a bright sun and a clear blue sky proclaimed tho smiling approbation of Him who sends the early nnd thu latter rain, and whose promise is sure ihal secd-lium nnd harvest shall never foil. Tho spot selected fur Hie exhibition was tho Battery. Here, where grim-vissnged were but yesterday marshalled hnr hosts, and nodding plumes and bristling pikes proclaimed her " nomn and circumstance," came now tho sons of poaco lo cclebrnlo iheir " Harvest Home." I he serried column is now succeeded by lines of bulls, of bullocks, and ofkine the neighing war-liorse.hv looine herds and bleat ing (locks llm groans of men in battle slain, by tables groaning beneath their ponderous tunas ol rlpenetJ Iron ; nnd ns 0110 surveyed tho peaceful implements of husbandry that lay scattered hero nnd there, well might llio cyo of christian fault find hero fiilfilnieel of that prophecy which declares that swords urn tn ho beaten into ploughshares and spears used fur pruning-hnoks. The day .the place, nnd the occasion wero all in unison ; and dull, and cold, nnd poor indeed must that man bo who could mil draw an instructive lesson from surh teachings. Thn display of cattle was larce. and shew , a derided improvement on last year. There , were some fine specimens of high blood, and I Ihe exhibition of working oxen was a!logeth ! er ahead of what wh saw 11 1 ilia Slain Fair I m .uii.iny, two years since.

Mr. Pilkh exhibited a noble pen of foiled hogs portly and well proportioned and wo noticed several fino breeding animals, of tho larger class. There were many fino sheep on the ground. The flocks of Messrs. Cooks, Bingham, Newell, Saxton, and others, will bear comparison with any in this region, and speak well for their owners and the couniy. Of fruits and vegetables llieio was a profusion, and of va rieties nnd qualities, such as to inspire in us a great deal of charily for mother Eve. A basket of pears from tho tardea of Cam.

Pierce's display of silk, in all ilS Various forms, from llin rnrnnn in fabric, was an exhibition of skill and industry which could not foil 10 challenge admiration ; and her dress pattern of wove silk, only needed the interference of llie mantaumaker to have entitled her lo Iho premium "for li e best woman in a silk dress of her own nun ufocture." The ploughing match, on lha second day, excited a good degree ol interest ; though wo are bound lo say, that ihe plouehine was not a pattern card. Strange as it may seem, no-farmer of the county had confidence enough in himself, his learn, or his plough, to enter the lists ; and 011 Thursday morning a rally was made) 0f four teams in llie village, witii such implements as could ho come at on llio spur of llie moment. Tho 1-8 of an acre was performed in 18 minutes by llm horses, ami 22 by ihe oxen. Tho genera' interest manifested on the occasion, howev er, demonstrates that this may be made a profilablu and amusing feature of our annu al exhibitions. Farmers, wo doubt not will take iho mailer in hand another year. And here wo will lako occasion lo suggest to manufacturers of ploughs, that llieso aro fit ling occasions lo exhibit their implements, and pul them lo tho test, Thero was a cul pable neglect of llio matter this year. At two o'clock, Rev. Mr Dinoiiam ad dressed a ciowded audience of ludics and gentlemen at the Court House, who listened with marked attention lo Ills eloquent and instructive teachings.

After the, uddrcss Iho premiums wero awarded, and then a sale took place of a variety of premium and other ailiclcs, which went off much to tho satisfaction of all con cerned. As a wholet the fair went off well. All enjoyed it most persons went away satis fied, and we havo every reason lo believe that it will exert a wholesome Influence.

In pursuance of a call signed by more than two hundred of llie active cilkent of Boston, a very large meeting of the busi ness men and capitalists assembled in that city on Monday evening of last week lo con sider the important claims of this route. Ciiarlbs W. CAnTwnioitT, Esq. presided, and E. C. HurciiiNs and E. W. Dana acted as secretaries. The meeting was addressed by Hon. Richard Fletcher, A diel Chand ler, and Nathan Rice, of Boston, and Hon. Timothy Follett, of this place. Tho dis cussion resulted in the adoption of a scries of resolutions setting fonh the peculiar ad vantages of this road, and declaring its imme diate construction expedient ; and the ap pointment of n committee of twenty-five lo procure subscriptions lo the slock. Subse quent accounts assuro us that the subscrip tion was rapidly filling up, and well-informed persons speak confidently of ihe whole amount being secured wilhin a very short period. U. S. JUDGES. Hon. Levi WooDpunv has been appoint ed by the President lo the bench of ihe Su preme Court, in place of Judge Story, de ceased.

Another civil war has broken out in Han cock County Illinois, between the Mormons nnd ihe ndjaccnt population. It does not ap pear distinctly which parly was tho aggres sor in uie nrst instance, but the accounts now represent both parties in the field, to the number of some two thousand each, armed and equipped for both offensive and defensive warfare. Thus for, it would seem that the Mormons are llie r.ss-iiled and suf- lering puny, uni! 01 llieir iiumlier lias been killed, sixty of iheir dwellings burned down, and a large amount of their properly plun dered. J. B. B.ickenstos, tho Sheriff of Hancock county, issued 11 proclamation com manding, in ihe nnmo uf tho Stale, and hy tint iiulhoriiy invested in him, rioters and oili er peace breakers to desist forthwith, dis peise, and go In their homes, under the pen alty yf tho laws ; calling upon Ihu law abi ding cilizens, as a posse comitatus, ol Han cock couniy, to give llieir uiiiied aid in sup pressing ihu rioters, and maintaining (lie su premacy of tin- law. The Sheriff, in a postscript lo his proc lamation, says: I "It, i- a pan of my policy that thecilisensof Nauvoo remain quier, and 1101 n man from lliat city leave, as n posse, unlit it be made manifest ihat ihe law nnd order ciiiz-ns, without the city, will not have force sufficient 10 suppress the rioters of Ihis diicrscelnl l uirncc. but thai 2000 efledive men hold themselves in readiness 10 march ai a moment a warning, to any puuii in Kiauuuen. tsuuiii). More TrtooBLE with the Mormons. Our correspondent at Warsaw sent us by tho La Clcele, which arrived tins morning, the following account of serious outbreaks botwenn the Mor mon and their opponents in Hancock County. St. Louis Rep., Idlk. Warsaw, 11th Sept. 1845 10 o'clock, A. M. Un Tuesday morning Isst (Ihe IJth inst,) an attack was made on a school house in Rncliv Run Precinct, by some persons unknown, but supposed lo be Mormons, in which there was at the lima of the attack a convention of Ami Mormons, nr old nettle of the County. The door and iviinluwii uf the house were complete ly riddled by the shots tired hy the assailants. The attacking parly approached under cover of Ihe woods and bushes, fired one round and fled. No person was injured, but many were, I pre sume, much frightened at Ihis sudden and unex pected attack. The o d settlers in that section nf the country armed ihemsches for defence, and if Ihey are backed by their friends in other parts of the country, blond will flow. By a mes senger just in, who csme tn purchase lead, powder, tliut?, etc., I learn that lour buildings were burned down last ni"lit, and one man shot and very badly wounded, but not mortally. yesterday, thirteen wagons, loaded t, it la furni ture, were seen wendintr their way to Ihe City of Refuge (ftauvoo.) 2 o'clock, t. h. Another messenger has just arrived from the country, and reports that large bodies ol Mormons are patrolling llie southern part of the county, and that a number of families from the interior are en their .way lo Warraw, seeking protection. I can form nn opinion what the result will be. The storm may pass over without any vcry serious consequence, anil there may be much destruction of property and the loss of many lives, before peace and quiet shall be fully and permanently established in this un hippy county.

In exhuming of late the remains of so many wonderfully large animals unknown to the pres ent age, il has been supposed that tho ancien1 race of men must have beencnrrespontlitmly as largo. At leniitli we liao something to sustain the doctrine. Tho Madison II inner stales in Iho most reliable authority, Ihat a person in Franklin County, Teunesee, while diggins; a well, a few weeks since found a human skele ton, at tho de-pth of fifly feet, which measured eighteen feel in length. The iininenso frame was entire with an unimportant exception in one ot Ihe extremities. It has been waited by sev eral of Ihe principal members of tho medical faculty in Nashviilo and pronounced unequivo cally, by all, the skeleton nf a liugo man.
