These arc the Hong boats anchored near usj and you may see, dashing through the water, tho boats of tho foreign residents green gigs, white wherries ; trim sail boats, careering to the evening brcctc, with their white sails glist ening In the sun-light. There's the " Boston Jack," sailing along on her side; the saucy "Amelia," tho " Grace Darling," "Haven," "' Nautilus," and " Wave;" and off hero is the Mouse," which lias an odd way sometimes of beating dead beforo tho wind, but as they say, " 'tis a way she has ; she mean nothing by It.' Down further there arc several others that I can't make out, all, however, looking very pret tily. The twilight and moschetocs seem to be gathering, so we had better ' up anchor" and go home and get some tea.

" In the dark and tiioudled night that is WON US, THERE IS NO StAII ABOVE THE ItOMZON TO GIVE US A GLEAM Or LI'JIIT, EXCEl'TINO THE XTELLIOEST, PATIUOTIc".VlIW TAUTV OF THE United States." Daniel Webster. Adjourned Telegraph .Meeting, tomorrow Saturday) evening nt Strong's Hall. Dir. Polk in Vermont. Wo find the following paragraph in tho Mont fclitr Watchman: On Tuesday evening a meeting was holden here, and a commiticc appointed to invite I'rrsiJent Polk to villi Montpelier. We hope he will come. Vermont and Vcrmontcra are worth showing ; or rather, it is worth the trouble for the President to take a little ) ants to tee them. We notice, with regret, the names of more than one Witto, good and true, on tno "Com mitteo" alluded to. It may be said to bo a mat' ter of taste, perhaps, but it is not so with us If Mr. Polk chooses to come to Vermont, there li no fear but that he will receive respectful attention and consideration. But the matter of inviting him hither, by Whigs, is quite another affair. There is not a Stale in tho Union where he is in worse odor with his own unscrupulous partisan?, and where his whole course, both of policy and action, is more thoroughly and deeply detected. Wo look upon hint as the usurping author of a war for tho support and extension cf slai-cry, a war as odious as it is unnecessary, and as hostile to the highest interests of this republic as it is injurious to the true glory of tho American name. We regard him as one of the most illiberal and narrow-minded partisan Presi dents that the Country has ever inflicted upon Itself a thorough hater of the North and of Northern and Free-State interests, and wholly committed to tho worst purposes of the worst portion of his own divided party. He has not hesitated, even while giving to Mexico the only generals, (Santa Anna and Almonte,) who could impart energy to her reslstanco of our arms, to ehargi) the Whig party with treason, and giving " aid and comfort to the enemy," because they had thought proper to speak as 1 ccomes free men of him and his schemes. Ho has attempted to dishonor those noble Whigs, Tavlor and Scott, by superseding thoin in the command of the army ; and ho has dishonored the army by the partisan diameter nf his appointments conferring the highest rank on incapablo favor ites like Pillow, or renegades like Cushing, and passing by with contemptuous indifference the meritorious services of the most gallant of our regular officers. Scarcely a week ago, while the honored guest of the Whig Common Coun cil of New York, ho ncceptod the invitation of snch Custom House bullies as tho notorious Ryndcrs, a leader of the infamous Empire Club, and, on Saturday night, visited the Democratic Head Quarters at Tammany Hall, " on which occasion," says .Mike Walsh, "a scene took place that was utterly disgraceful to all con cerned " He has, still moro recently, visited New Hampshire, on the etc nf an important elec tion, and, in our opinion, for no other purpose but to throw what influence such a proceeding might have, into the scale of the ultra pro slavery Locofocoism of that State. For such a man wo have no sort of respect, though he may, by accident or otherwise, bj President of tho United States ; and, wo say again, that we arc sorry that any Vermont Whig could bo induced to iniitc him into our State. The Presidency contributes not a whit to make him respectable, and his name will be connected with it hereafter only to be execrated as that of a mcro Partisan. If Whigs arc to rolunttr to do honor t'i such men, it ap pears to us that iT.iMin.ts arc little worth con tending for. .Magnetic Telegraph, We have neither timo nor space, this week, o do more than to call the attention of our readers to the Adjourned Melting of those in terested in tho succc.-s of the efforts to secure a Magnetic Telegraph through Western Vermont, and earnestly to request a very general ntlen dance of our citizens at STRONG'S HALL. TO-MORROW KVLW'IXU. Wo trust those who have not subscribed to tho itock of the company, as well as those who have, will at tend tho meeting if fur no other object, to en courage and givo countenance to the efforts of those who have labored in creditably and efli eiently in behalf of the project. An enterprise in which all classes in the community aro more interested than it may be possible for them to perceive at once, should possess the sympathy at least of all classes of the Farmer, the Mer chant, the Mechanic, the Professional man, an J the man of leisure. Substantial as hat c been the contributions of Burlington, tho success of the project is not yet, by any means, secured. It ii scarcely to be expected that other sections interested will contribute as promptly and effi ciently as we have done, and promptness and fgieiency are not only durable but they aro indis pensable. Something moro than 82000 has been sscurod, chiefly through the efforts of Professor d, W. Benedict, since the meeting last Satur day, at which time his name and our own were added to tho committeo. The sum now sub scribed, wo aro happy to learn, exceeds 813,000 J hiit'we take occasion to give timely notice that the nirk it not done. Ih.i at Strong's Hall on Ifattird.iy ft tilling mid Jesrn why. "lino Addled whit Rom was burning." An Aristocracy illustrated. We find in the summary of foreign news by the Caledonia, prepared for tho Boston Atlas, tho following consecutive paragraphs. We can imagine nothing that should exhibit in a more startling, impressive, or trut'.ilul manner the hcarttcssness and selfishness and utter Injustice of that intensely artificial system of government which, on the otic hand, condemns men and women to hopeless poverty and misery and death, and on the other, cradles a class of shal- low-patcd, frivolous and effeminate popinjays, who are born Dukes, and Princes, and the like super-sublimated humbugs, in wasteful wealth and luxury. Wo beg our readers to look at the following recoids : r AMINE, I EVER AND MURDERS CONTINUE TO TORM THE taws rROM liiEi.ANn. It is reported that the new po tato crop is diseased. The Queen and the Court. On the 4th ult., the Queen and the Unyal Family returned to London from Windsor Castle. On the llth ult., the Queen gave a grauu Quite uan.nt uucktngnam t aiacc. i lie invt lations exceeded iiUUO. The Queen was a til red very ilcganily, in pink and white, with trimmings of pink acacias and diamonds ; a wreath of acacias and dia monds forming the head-dress. I'rinee Albert wore lusl-ield Marshal's uniform, with a Kussian irder of knighthood, m addition to the stars of the British or' ders, and the ensiens of the Golden Fleece. I he Queen lias visited the Italian Operas and the ot. James 1 iieatre several limes. The absolutely sickening particularity of till! nes with which the commonest " movements " of "the Queen and the Court" are set forth in Iho English journals, is in marked and gloomy contrast with the formal generalities of sym pathy with human woo and suffering that char acterize the accounts of the starved and dying condition of the millions of poor Irish, each one of whom is of as much consequence in tho sight of God as any starred or gartered aristocrat that flutters and glitters beforo " the Queen and the Court." Since the bravo old feudal times, when Knighthood and Earldoms were bestowed as the reward of noble deeds, and of high and generous and chivalric daring, the flummery and parade of Kings, and Queens, and Princes, and Dukes, and Earls, and Knights, havo been growing, slowly but decidedly and deservedly, into (it subjects for the ridicule and the contempt of men. They add not a cubit to any man's real stature, nor do they indicate or confer any true dignity. They are only fit for play-things and toys for people who cannot read or write. " Famine, feicr, and murders continue to form the news from Ireland;" and, "Tho Queen gave a grand State Ball at Buckingham Pa ace, and " was attired very elegantly in pink and while," and " Prince Albert wore his Field .Marshal s uniform " and the "stars" and "en signs of rojalty ! And then we havo the fur- ther intcllgence that "the Queen has visited the Italian Operas and the St. James' Theatre several times." Ail well enough ; but, after all, ono might be disposed to ask, " ichat if it ?" Tho young woman is no bcttter qualified, except by the accident of birth, to govern a great na tion, than she is to bo the Chief Engineer cn tho London and Birmingham Railroad, but till England runs mad with excitement if she goes to visit Lidy Flummididdlc, at Flummididdle Hall, or takes an airing in St. James' Park with His Highness, Prince Albert, and their little Highnesses, the babies, and her lowness, the nurse ! The big Ushers and the little Ushers, and the Chamberlains of tho Honsehould, and the Masters of the Horse, and tho Equerries in waiting, and their high Sillinesses generally, aro all agog with tho transcendent importance of the " moiemcnl" " Th'rc was mounting 'mong the Grahams cf the Ncthcrby Clan, Fosters, Frnwicks and Musgravcs they rode and they ran!" And, all the while, "famine, f ever and murders continue to form the news" from her Most Chris tian Majesty's dutiful subjects in Ireland ! Wo arc not such a fool as to dream of blam ing " the Queen and the Court" for these tilings. It is to bo expected that they will seek to hold fast to and perpetuate them. We simply say that they aro intrinsically and ineffably sill v. and, in connection with the dreadful misery and suffering, the deprivation and want, that the same System that upholds them entails upon millions of sorely abased and oppressed men and women in Ireland, they become a mockery of the Justice ol Heaven ! They will have an end, one of these days either sensibly and quietly, or with a concussion that will startle tho hered itary rulers of Europe moro effectually than did the decapitation of Charles the First, or of ''Louis the Unfortunate," the last of whom perished, fays a r rench historian, fur the crime of " pos- sessing those ideas of royalty in which all the kings of Franco had been educated, and wish ing to preserve the power which he inherited." IT The Brandon Voice nf Freedom of the 1st tnst. has not yet come to hand. If our friend, " the blacksmith," published his paper on the 1st. there is manifestly something wrong in the Post Offices or tho mails, which would be rather marvellous, considering the extraordinary per fection to which Cave Johnson and his nice De puties have brought matters. Was there any thing unconstilntinnally heavy in your paper of tho 1st. Mr. Holcnmb? Is n Corporulion nn Individual f This question has boen cut, if not solved, by our remarkable neighbor, tho Sentinel cf- Demo crat. In allusion to the Report of tho President of the Vermont Central Railroad, which men tions the fact that the Northern, mid the Con nccticut and Passuinpsic River, Railroads "are now in tho process of construction," tho Senti n't says : ' And he might have added the Rutland Route is under proctsa ol lajud construction." And then our sagacious contemporary, omit ting no opportunity to show the collar it wears adds, by way of improvement, or as a sort of corollary from the preceding proposition : " It is really wonderful that the killing wart and Olllllllliig mull oi mis. ic.lAcu wim uiiiiiiina traiion" should infuse such action into individual en terprtse" ! Of course it it! The Sentinel manages thing with as much shrewdness as the Mussulman did his religious scruples against pork; yielding a little here, claiming a little there, and smoothing a nine an over, " Till quits from tail to snout was Eaten!" linporlnnt letter. A letter, purporting to be from Gen. Tatlor to tho editor of a paper in Ohio, in relation to tho connexion of his name with tho Presidency, is coing tho rounds of the papers.

W are pained to b called cn to record the death of our esteemed fellow-townsman, Hen- rt Thomas, who died at his residence on Sat. urday last at about 1 o'clock P. M. Col. Thom as was lone resident of Burlington, and one of our most active, enterprising and energetic citi zens. Although he has been absent during almost the entire period of our residence here, we knew him well enough to leel the most affectionate respect for the generosity, kindness of heart.and li'icrality, that were marked features of his char acter. Where destitution and poverty implor ed for alms, and where sickness could be cheer ed by the good offices of a ready sympathy, Col. Thomas was apt to spare neither his purse nor himself; while ho was ever active In those en terprises of a public character which promised to advance the prosperity of Burlington or con tribute to its progress and improvement. Tho death of Col. Thomas takes from us one whose place,! n the relations of a citizen &. a friend, cannot easily be supplied; while that narrower circle, which hems in the higher and dearer social relations which bind the heart to earth, (but whose afliction is tempered by the bright remembrance of his happy departure,) is irreparably broken. Ship Fever. Some anxiety has prevailed in our vicinity in reference to the disease which has to some ex tent accompanied the masses of Emigrants that have recently been poured through our Lake, on their way from Canada to the States. We suppose the extent of the real illness, from the cause alluded to.the character of the diseases that have been attributed to these causes, and the oc casion for apprehension by the public at large, have been exaggerated and misapprehended and we say this on consultation with medical gentlemen among us. That there has been, and inconsiderable sickness of a severe type among the Emigrants, is undoubtedly true but this sickness results from peculiar causes, conncc tcJ with hali'.s and diet, from which our citizens are mostly exempt. We copy frdm the N. Y. Spectator tho following timely article from the Boston Medical Journal that is well calculated to allay unnecessary alarm : Ship Fever.

Alluding to tho " Sa ratoga and Washington Railroad," (from Sara toga to Whitehall) the editor says : "A good railroad will attract still more travel to "" North by the way of Whitehall and the Lake. And when the .'present awful railroad from Troy to Saratoga it rela.d wit h a good solid T will be. cornea favorite tuutc to Montreal, Ogdensburgh,&.e. A road is contemplated, too, from Whitehall to Rut land or some point on the route of the Rutland road ? Yir 1 80me 20 miles tauten una make a mutt from lyiitrhallto Cotton that may. rery Jiltfe if any longer than by mayo Troy and Albany." When it was our fortune to be in Boston, in 1815, endeavoring to recommend to public favor there the claims of the " Rutland Road", wo encountered no obstacle more perplexing than the Bomcuhat profound ignorance that prevail ed respecting the geography of the country lying west of the Green Mountains. Our reminis cences of that terrible campaign would furnish several amusing instances illustrative of this ignorance, but we prefer to take one furnished by the intelligent and generally accurate Editor of an extensively-circulated Boston Journal. Our readers will notice the lines above that we have marked by italics. Now we undertake to say that the editor of the Traveler believes pre cisely what ho says. For his information, then, (and that of his readers, if he deems it of any consequence to correct the error) wo observe that from-Qostorr to Whitehall, "by the way of Troy and Albany," it is, by railroad routes, two IIUSDHED AND SEVENTY MX MILES while from Boston to Whitehall, by the way of the " Rut land Road," it is, one hundred and eighty eight miles, making a difference in favor of the latter routo of 88 miles ! If, therefore, when " the awful railroad from Troy to Saratoga is relaid with a good solid Trail, it will become a fa vorite routo ( from Boston ) to Montreal ifcc." it must be in conformity with the old adage that " the longest way around is the shortest way home." Again, as a piece of private information, which the Travilcr can use exclusively (as " no oilier papcr(in Boston)apprars to have the news') we observe that, when the Rutland and White hall roads shall be completed, it will be just ten miles nearer, by that route, from Boston to Sa ratoga Springs, " than by the tcay of Trey and Ubany" the latter being 237 and the former 227 miles besides being through a considerably more picturesque and interesting country ! We ask nothing for this information because Boston people are under no obligations to know anything more than they please on such topics. The Osdcnsburglt Railroad. Theobiect of tlie Lesislature of the State of New crantinj ichirterfor this road, was two-fold to benefit the inhabitants of Northern New York, and to open a new avenue, from the Western Lakes, tnro igu tne onampiain ianai,to tne scaouaru. The legislature weretuid bv the Iriendsof this pro jeel, that " a railroad, by incieasing the population of tne norinern coLnnes.wouiu uraw out us agricultural and mineral resuurces and, by increasing the wealth of the north, won d indirect v contribute to the wealth of the south and west." That a lame trade in ashes. provisions and lumber would be diverted to our own channels and would " flow through our own canals to me uocasoiour own commercial cities mat tins roid would be one of the principal lines in our internal improvements, interwoven with the commercial, ma nufacturing and agricultural prosperity ot the State." These were the arguments urged upon lh Legislature in favor ol the project, and that these were the reasons which induced the Legislature to iharter the road is evident from ls assertion ot ! leni'xti.o iviuimt- .... ...i it wai a w a. hiirh W advantageous not only to the northern counties but to the whole Stale." " It is an object of the first importance," says the com mittee, "that the location ot such railroad should be made where it will beet subserve the great interests of this State as well as ot the inhabitants more immedia tely interested." Not one word was said in favor of the road as a mere link, to hurry the trade of the great proposition, thea advanced, would have deleated the west tnrouzn inis oiate 10 n lore irn maraet. buctia oil', such a coarse, now pursued, would most cer tainly nrodtice ils reDeal. The Legislature otthe State ol New iork will not quietly allow this company, vio lating the assurances under which a charter was eran ted, to locate the road without regard to the best in terests ol Northern New York and with an evident desinn to divert from the State ol New York and her canals the entire business ol the road. The road must be located in 6uch a manner as to give to Tiny, Albany and New York a lair chance of competition with the city of Huston. More than this should not be asked by the stockholders. Lss than this will not be submit, ted toby the people of this State. A Canadian termi nation or one on the province line will not suit the State. She will require the pledges, under which the charter was procured, to Decanted out in good laith We f.nJ the foregoing tcnsiblc article in the Plattsburgh Republican of the 3d inst. and rcc ommend it to the notice of t'lose who, (without ever having taken the mialory steps towards procuring the neccss try legislation to warrant it,) continue to entertain tho expectation that Lake Champlam will bo bridged and especially to those who arc astride of that worse than chi merical hobby of carrying the Ogdcnsbiirgh into and through a portion of the British Pro- vince of Canada. Wo have no more idea that either of these projected and threatened meas ures will bo accomplished, than we have that the freight of the road will be transported on the wires of the Magnetic Telegraph. The sudden and extraordinary horror of a Ferry, which is said to have overcome the Bos ton Stockholders in the Ogdensburgh road is every way unaccountable It apcar8 to have swallowed up eroy other consideration of pru dencc an! profit in railroad matters, for which Boston people have hitherto been somewhat re markable. If the Ogdcnsburg road were to be the only one connecting tho trado ofjhe Great, Lakes with the . ntic MarltcU, tills sudden insensibility to ilie importance of uray-busincss on tho line of a projected railroad, on tho part of Bostonians, would seem less singular but with the Erie Canal, the N. V. &. Erie, the 0-wego, the .Albany and Buffalo, and other Railroads, built or building to accommodate tho very trade which is entirely and exclusively re lied uio to furnish the business of the Ogdens- burg and make its Ftock profitable, it surpasses belief that any wit-informed man can regard the dry-road pn.jcct from Ogdensburgh to Boston as of tho slighted tonscqucncc, compared with the advantage of a road through a region whose internal resources and business would secure an investment in it against all probability of loss. But the Ferry ! tho Ferry ! is tho spectre that is said to frighten Boston from its propriety, There are, wejiejieve, no less than two Ferries on tho lino of Road from New 1 ork to Wash ington, one between Boston and Albany, and we hue not learned that it is in contemplation to abandon t'le magnifi-ent enterprisj of construct ing the N. Y. -and Erie Railroad because a fer ry ofsomo thirty miles must forever exist t its eastern terminus. Tho truth is the evils and inconveniences of a Ferry across Lake ('hamplain, to accommodate the business of the Ogdensburgh road, have been designedly or otherwise, grossly exaggerated Tho, unwarranted and injurious sUtoments that, we are authorited to say, wore containod in Mr. Hayward's Rsport. 'but which were prudently f omitted from the printed abstract) that the Lake is closed by ice rive months in the year, and that a Freight Depot two miles and a half would be required to accommodate the freight that would accumulate on the western shore, havo apparently excluded from Boston all consideration of tho truth of tho matter, and prevented the exercise of that sound judgment which has heretofore distinguished the decisions of the citizens of that enterprising and flourish- city, in regard to the location and construction of railroads. What the result will be tec shall see. For the Free Press. A NEW LAW DICTIONARY or Jncobs Illustrated. Bv Gourntv Grant, attohnky. Custom Particular is defined to be " a law, not written, but established by long usage." A particular custom is a pot-pie, in the cooking of which the law is accustomed to be exceedingly particular requiring, in fact, so many ingredients in order to " make it good" as the law expresselh it as to be hardly worth the trouble. The following are a few of the requisites necessary to make a good custom : It must have great antiquity : indeed, the older the better. But if any body knows Its exact age if even the " oldest inhabitant" should happen to remember the beginning of it, then it " don't begin" to be a cus torn. See Co. Lit. U3. It must have been uninterrupted: for a particular custom, like a sensitive public speaker, is rery partic ular, and it it sutlers any interruption, it " won t go l." I'ote. From the two requisites above it is manifest that if neither the beginning nor end ol a custom can be ascertained, it is, quoad haee, a good custom ; but if any one is able to "make head or tail of it," it is good for nothing. Again, it must have been peaceable. Irom this requisite it is plain as a pike staff that duelling, and all "feats of the ring," (exclusive of mattimony,) arc not good customs. A custom must be reasonable. Littleton, 4 212. But Sir Edward Coke, who, by the by, comes down upon Littleton" on every possible occasion, percciv ing that to require all customs to be reasonable, was a very unreasonable requirement which would scatter many of them to the winds, and render the office of collector of customs" unreasonably onerous; saith ingenuously, touching the word " reasonable," that " it is not to be understood of every unlearned man's rca son, but of artificial and legal reason." To prevent nil caviling of the unlearned as to the soundness of arlifi cial reasons, Sir Edward judiciously adds "tear ranted by law." Again, it is required that "customs should be cer tain." But as this proposition implies that there ore certain customs which are not certain, which is an ob vious contradiction in terms, the doctrine is deemed unworthy of further investigation. Damnum tuum. This phrase dolh not import a profane and peremptory command of the law. that an aggrieved person shall bring immediale suit agoinst the wrong-doers, as one who is "led bv his enrs" might hastily imagine, but is a Latin expression which signifies one's " own hurt" and contains no in timation of hurting any body else. DtrENDER of the Faith. This title was first con ferred on Henry the Eighth of England, by Pope Leo the Tenth, in reward for his .Majesty's labor in writing pamphlet against .Martin Luther. But notwith standing the king's devotion to the Sacraments of the Church, especially that of Marriage, of which he is represented to have ptrtaken with almost indecent frequency j his majesty, by the obolishmcnt of the monasteries, involved himseli in difficulties with the See, in which lie came near being ewnmp-il Pope lisu, who is said to have been a lion of a Pope, be coming incensed at the king's defection, commenced an action against him for the purpose of " defeating his title."

Hut the " sovereigns" of the United Slates have a "patent" for the denization, or rather the naturalization of aliens which is vastly superior to the English machinery used for that purpose, both in simplicity of construction and power of execution. It is usually erected in places near the sea-board, and is copable of manufacturing several hundred prime citi zens in a doy. Indeed, the American doctrine in re lation to the naturalization of aliens, seems very ex actly expressed in the liberal sentiment of Terence nihil humanum mihi alienum. " We esteem nothing foreign, that is human." But the yativei, a savage tribe now nearly extinct, pervert this beautiful passage, by a translation as bar barous as themselves- " We consider nothing human, that is foreign"! I'oelicnl Polkcry.

The cold and rainy weather that prevailed for some two weeks In June caused somo apprehension for the Corn crop, and, Indeed, may have had the effect to diminish Its amount though the glo rious " com weather" that has succeeded seems to bo likely to "rectify all mistakes." Tho Wheat and Ryo arc in fine condition, and Hay, where it was not "winter-killed," promises to be very abundant. We hear no complaints of a recurrence of the Potato disease, and, on the whole, it may bo said that the Earth will bring forth her increase in a manner well calculated (nnd doubtless mercifully designed) to show us that works of kindness and brotherly love, and not contentions and wars, should employ the hearts and hands of our people.

In relation to grass, the chief depen dence of Vermont husbandry, in this county the mead ows suifered immensely Iroin the alternations of the last open winter.
