The evils 'jjjfesnlt from the practice of endeavoring to nstrfiri "tnbrt of tho Inchest institutions of learn- iiigtlmu the educational wants of the Country r Deal Gently Wo have received for publication a resolution adopted by tho Rcchabito Society In Burlington, expelling one of their members for n. violation of h pledge. 'Micro aro two principal reasons why wo must decline; to publish this and all similar resolutions. In tl.e first place, while It Is of course no part of our business to dictate to the society the discipline proper to bo pursued with an erring brother, wo are firmly convinced that the opprobrious publication of his name to tho world is precisely tho u-orst way to reclaim him or any body else. Gentleness and forbear ance win while harshness and intolerance repel us all. In the second place.vvo do not think that a resolution adopted by a secret society justifies us in dragging before tho public tho name of ono ol our citizens, an old man of unobtrusive deportment & certainly so far as ice know any thing of him,, far, very far, nioro deserving tho kindness and sympathy than tho denunciation of his neighbors. For these reasons wo cannot consent to pub lish tho resolution handed to us, in tho Free Press. Wo think thu proccedim?. to Eav the reirfej, arc ,y no means confined tit tho insti- j least, haish, unkind and inexpedient to tho last tulions themselves. The catiso of Education , dc.errp. Vnd our friends the Kcchabites, who through tho imwhol.-omo ha,vi.. t'0no and aro doini' niuch cood in socictv. win pardon us for remnitlingthcm, in this con nection, that wo aro enjoined by that unerring Wisdom from whose Oracles they havo drawn their name, to "forgive" tho short-comings of our brother man, not " seven timcs,''but "seven ty i ia sev ex." If wo were to counsel those who aro doubtless much better qualified to give good advice to us, we would venture to say : suffers which the practice alluded to necessarily uTuiut es; a competition wholly out of place, and that has less- reference to the character and useful , ncss uf tl,o College, as an agent of thorough in Titntion, than lo the ways and means of its pecuniary support. To be eminently ix'fnl.and sirhservu the best interests of sociity. such an Institution should be liberally endowed cer tainly o much as it fills slmit ol an adequate tmlowmeiit it must fail in its capacity to do pent. " It appears to us (and we take occasion to say that these observations are made at no sugges tion but our own) that the true friends of our Vermont Colleges, and those who earnestly aim to secure tho capital ndvatagps of a systematic and thorough and sound education will act most wisely if they bring abouta union ot effort and Interest between them. Haw such a union ) might bo effected is not ol course for us to say. I 'Hut that there can be any iiiupcablo olstaclo in its way we do not believe. With one Collegiate Institution in our state, commanding tho sym pathies, the suppoit, and the confidence ol the "Strive with the wanderer from tin- belter palh, Hcniingthy message meekly, not in wrath : Weep lor the frail who err, llie vveiik who fall, Have Ihincown lahh, but hope mid pray lur oil!" Tho subjoined communication comes from on of the oldest and best citizens of our State one whose strong sense revolts from tho mis erable pettifogging by which the existing war witli Mexico has been upheld in high pl.ices,and who prefers to look at things as they really arc, rather than through tho false glaro of " glorifi cation spectacles." lie was a democrat in old times when tlio word meant something, though he is now set down, by theiiniledged democracy of polkdom, asa Mexican federalist. We will only add that ho was one of the Presidential The Notional Era. 1 We liavo noticed tho courso of thin Anti-Slavery paper sitico Its establishment at Washing ton, with Interest and anxiety. Wo hoped It would place Itself on what we believe to bo tho truo Northern Anti-Slavery ground, and fjiua become an efficient and valuable agent In over throwing tho crowning curso of our country and tlio age. Hut we confess our fears vvero quite as strong as our hopes. Wo feared it would identify itself with that particular class of anti-slavery, s who, planting themselves upon the simplo and abstract postulate that " all men aro created free and equal," and heeding none of the counsels of wisdom and moderation, stand ready to mako war upon Slavery In other states and under other nnd independent jurisdic tions, without regard to circumstances or conse quences, and caring nothing " Though Home in Tiber melt, and the wide areli Of the rnnged empire fall." Wo are happy to state, however, that with this class of Reformers tlio lira nppears to have no affinity nor fellowship. It aims higher, and with a steadier purpose to accomplish good. It is conducted with marked ability and in the tern- temper and spirit that aro as far removed from tamcness and Insipidity as from denunciation and abuse. Wo wish it all manner of patron- go and success. It is where it ought to bo whero slavery exists. It tells the truth where tho lio is propagated, and tells it like a gentle man and a christian. We copy the following article from tho lira, and commend its words of truth and soberness to a good many who have unconsciously sat for tho picture : The Sclf-Itlgliteous Itcforincr.

IJut wc have a more illustrious class of rcfonners m thisnintccmli century, who mav be stvlcd hnmacu- lale, infallible, intolerant and implacable.
