From these facts one thins is certain, either that God wrought a miracle, in preserving the lives of them whine duty it was to attend to tlio sick ami bury the dead ;or, that tills fevor Is not infectious in tho country, or where the air i pure; mo Doctors were about equally iiiuucu on tins subject. James I (antic, once a profes'-or in Coliinib'in College, and an assistant in the Marine Hospi tal on Staton Ishnd in 1709, informed pie that, during tho months of July, August and Septem ber, there were, in all, two hundred and fifty per rons sick of vi-llow fever, in t lit) Marino Hospi tal; a grcatpart of whom were from the-shippiug the rest from the city.

Ucmlred, That while readily admitting that for the b-ie pciiod in which the Toriif of ' Ifi and the Sub Treasury have been in opeiaiiou, tlie business ol the country Ins not sulleud to the extent which was justly appirhcmled, we belinte the result is solely due to the extraordinary circumstances which h-iie de manded our productions for l.urope at exceeding high prices, and bountifully supplied us with specie m re turn. llrxohed, That by the enlarged importations of foreign goods under the Tarifl' ol 1810, and the with, drawal of immense amounts ol specie from the Atlan tic States under the Sub-Tieasury act, we are warned that the legitimate tendencies ol this system of reve nue and finance arc to stimulate foreign liade nl lhe eeiise of our own, nnd to disturb the currency of the country ; theretore, we renevveilly declare our uncoin- Well ', in process of time an election ap proaches in tho staunch old Whig Stato of Vemiont, where Slavery, and this miserable and d.islardly War for its extension and per petuity, tiro held in utter abomination, and its author has no friends beyond the wire-workers of parly and tho Incumbents of his offices, (and at heart lulio-warm friends at that).

It is one of tlio poorest cards we ever saw played for political effect. Why wail till just before the election, if Micro were any thing in tins " gal tMiiizcd corpse" of a thricc-u-ed political stalking-horse 1 Why has not tho Patriot published tlieo "95 wanton murders, robberies, etc. &c." long In-fore, when they wcru brought to light, (accouling to its own statement at the head of its columns,) "on the '2d if December, 1837,' NEARLY TEX VEAHS A0(l!

And this trumpery, of a man charged with the very crime which he charges on others, is gravely brought forward as tho sole Instance to sustain tho outcry of '95 WANTON MURDKHS &c.' with which a paper claiming to ho respectable alms to nu.Miiuei. its readers! Was ever such trash, such utter, unmitigated trash, addressed to the common senso of the readers of a yankec newspaper? Wo allirm that the samples wo have given above aro faiorahlc ones. We se lected them, in a running survey of tho whole, because they are brief. Tho specifications that aro longer aro only tho more silly. If Vermont- crs aro misled by them, the power to deceive! and cheat mankind is illimitable ! Rut wo havo one question to ask of tho Pa triot. President Folk affirms and re-affirms from ton to twenty time's, in his last message, that Mexico commenced this war upon in. This is the burden of the whole of that part of his mes sage which discusses tho topic. Utcrylocofoco p:iver in the Union liolds tlio same language. Notwithstanding these " 95 Wanton Murders, Robberies, &c. etc. of American Citizens," we havo commenced no war on Mexico, say Mr. Folk and locofocoi-m generally Mexico has capped tho climax of insolence nml atrocity by " commexcixo tub tt'Ait" after all!

The dcalli of the Rev. Messrs. Morgan, ar.d Montininy, Lieut. Loyd R. N. Mr. Crispo, and others, is announced, and the life of the Rev. .Mr. Willoughby of Trinity Church " is considered in tho gie itost danger." We make these statements not to awaken un necessary alarm, but as a matter of public duty, to the public, (who aro entitled to tho advanta ges that will result from free and fair competi tion.) that tho simple statement of these f.icts would justify us in imputing to Mr. lltiyward llie motive for recommending tho single connec tion " near I'urlington," if we had not (as wo have) other warranty for so doing.

The President bowed low, ami tho Democrat bowed lower, tho latter all the while retreating, utterly heedless, however, both of distance ami direction. The sceno was getting inteiisly in teresting, when our Iriend the democrat, hay ing retreated, unawares, to within a ftnv inch es of the wall, laid himself out for the Iiiul bow, which bo doubtless intended for the grand ch;i Jegraceuf tlio occasion.
