There arc certain considerations serious ly connected with the commercial growth and prosperity of liiirliiigtnn, tlio interests id'Chittendeii County nud of tho State, that appear to us to merit, at this time, tho ut tention of the electors. It is no longer n matter of doubt that two noblo lines of Railway nro to traverse the two great divisions of our State, open ing uvenues of communication between hake Champlnin and the Atlantic markets. Tho Vermont Ckntkai. and the Chami'lain nnd Conn. Riven Railroads are in such a State. And esp-cinlly is sho called on to resul such a protect when it has no claim upon her on tho ground of necessity, nud whi n its success would confer injury in stead ol beni lit upon herself. The inter ests of Ilurlington, of Chittenden County, and of tho State, demand that the four rail- roads of which wo have spoken, (tho Celt tral, tho Rutland, the Vermont and Canada and the Ogdcnsburgh,) should bo carried successfully forward precisely in the man- tier nnd precisely for the purposes set forth and had in view when their charters were granted without exclusive regard to what scheme may best promote the prosperity of another Stale, but with n single reference to the welfare nnd prosperity of our own. These nro our views on tho important topics under discussion, nnd wc nro author ized to say that t hey nre the views explicit ly entertained by Messrs. Hamilton: nnd Ferrueon', and Judge Polixtt, our enndi dates for Senators and for town Representa tive.

I What to mnko of tho llrandon Voice of Free dom we nro at a loss to know I Uiita few days havo passed since wo took occasion to express oar admiration of tho judicious and sensible course it ha pursued under tho management of Mr, Ilolcoinb, and how wo are constrained to say that Its leading editorial, of last week, awa kens no feeling bill tint of profound astonishment and disgust.

Mr. Vilas as President pro temjiorc of the Senate, nl the last session ot tho Legislature. As to the first of these complaints we have only to say tbat,in our judginent.the only proper time and place for tbe discussion and settlement of it was the Contention. Tho chaitering or re-cbaitcring of particular Ranks is exclusively a local intciest, and does not enter in the remo test degree, as we understand it.into tlio question as to what constitutes Whig 1'r.iNcin.Es. Thoo counties or sections which desire Hanks are en tirely nl libertv to test the question as to their expediency in their primary assemblies they havo mi right to say it is a " Whig Principle" that one town is entitled to a Rank because another town has one. The question is one to bo decidcil entirely on its individual merits, and is incapablo of being elevated into a principle. Our own opinion is that the claims of tho people of llrandon for a Hank nro meritorious, nnd that they will bo acknowledged by tho Legislature. We are in favor of a Hank in llrandon because wo believe the large and rapidly increasing bu siness of that tow n requires one ; but that Whig Small Potatoes.

Ho was born in Spiingfield. Mass., In 1701, nnd at tho tender age of 15 enlisted s a soldier to fight the battles of his country. Tlu was with Stark and Allen at llenninglon, and subsequently was at tlio surrcne'er of Hurgoyne at Saratoga; two of tho most signal and important triumphs of tho American arms dining the bloody period of tho Revolution. In 1781 ho took up his residence at Waiting- ford, In Vermont, and the very forgo that ho thero erected, more than (JO years ago, is yet In successful operation. Shortly afterwards he removed to Williston, in this County, where ho passed nearly the wholo of his subsequent l&g life. He early became an associate witln'.ov. Ciiiitenden, and a warm and intimate frondship, cemented by mutual esteem and rested, sprung up be twecn them, that lasted Jur.,-.- their lives. Judge Miller was for 1110,0 than a quarter of a century employed in the nclivo concerns of public life ns Clerk of Mir Court, as Judge of Probate for this Distric, and as a Memlier of the State Council previously to the organiza tion of the Senate. In all the.se public trusts he displayed a unifirm cxcellc'icn of judgment and disci imitation, a wide acquaintance with the theory and practice of our republican institu tions, and a firmness and i.ilegrity of action and of purpose, that secured f.r him, in a large de gree, the popular confidence and respect. The value of such a man in the domestic circle, where principles (whether good or evil ) aic earliest planted and take deepest root, is best appreciated by those who constitute that circle, and who remember his counsels.

Our readers will find, on our first page, ex- tiacts from t'm correspondence of thoXew York Courier and Vwpiirer nnd tho Ex-press, relating to tho exercises at tiio recent Commencement of tbe University. The interesting letters from which these extracts are taken were written, wo take it, by Mr. Rav.mond of the Courier and .Mr. Houghton of the Kxpress, both of whom were present on the occasion alluded to, and both of whom have never failed to evince, since their connection witli it terminated, a lively in terest in, and zeal for, tbe prosperity of their alma mater. Wo think the extracts from the beautiful and lini-hed poem of Mr. IIorKiNs, which Mr. Hoe-on-tov was permitted to quote, fully justify us in the high opinion we entertain of its rare merits. Henry Vlll made royal proclamation against all man ner of gimes, which, hy way of leproacb, he termed ' ludi vain," though it is notorious that no one in the three kingdoms was more obnoxious to the charge of possessing a lewd eye and a rain eye, than bis majes ty! However, the king being a decided tiiunp. car ried all the gimes his own way.

See Stowe'a Annals. Hut these acts of the king, which were rather too summary to lie taken eoolly b his subjects, were at length modified by ruiliamcut, and gambling, under certain trilling restrictions, restored to the people. Gentleman is compounded of two languages, from the Trench sentil, i, e. hoaestus, nnd the Haxon won, a man. Putting that and that together, one would s'ippose that an honest man constitutes a gentleman. Out such an hypothesis is plainly at war, not only with the popular sentiment, but also with strict etymology. por honestus is a word which, like some individuals, baa nothing honest about it but its outwanl appear. mice. The true signification of the term is Kcll-lorn, and its application is to those who have the luck to be born with "gold spoons in their mouths" which brings the definition of a gentleman to he this: Gen tleman the son of a rich man. I!ut Sir Thnmai Smith (De Uep. Aug. lib. I, c. -')) has g'nen n full anil complete description of a gentleman, whereby every linn may try hiin.elf nnd bis neighbors.
