BURLINGTON FREE PRESS, FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER, 10, 1847. mportsof lorelgn may prove extensive, will rulo vcrv low ilurliisj the next six or eight months. Wheat culling commenced in parts of Dev onshire as e.lfly as t ho lfilli ; but that operation was by no means general, even up to tno close of tin? month. The condition of the few ram ies wo have yet seen is trood, but the weicht Is iv no means hew. A few patches of land have been cleared of their barley, oats, and peas j but wo regard the harvest generally at least ten days later than was that of last year. Nearly the whole of the crop of bay has been pcr.nred in the southern and some of the eastern nlid midland counties, and wo may stale that Its produce has turned out remarkably (nod, both us respects quality and quantity. Wo therefore particularly as' there is a very largo quantify of old hay still to bo found on most farms an ticipate low piiccs for that desiription of pro duce for some time hence. Tho crop of grass is turning out very produc tive. Several samples of carrawuv, rancsecd, iVc, have been on oiler In our various market". and hao sold at fair prices. Tho produce of Unit lias proved .1 most abundant one. JFrcc f)vc00, nuni.iN(iTo.v, vi. FRIDAY MORNING, SLTTHMBUIl 10, 1317.

At about one o'clock on Wednesday morning, lifter five inefl'ectual ballotings, Wyllys Lyman, IJl-rj., tho candid lie of tho Locofoco parly, was elected Town lieprcsentalivo for Htirlinglou. Wo make tho record " more in sorrow than in anger." The discreditable result was brought about by Wiii.js. With a clear majority for Governor Batox of thirty-fnc oier all other, and the power to send a Whig representative by ft HODr.nn majority, tiio Whig Party in Hnr liugton i UEiEATr.i). 'J'liis is the fact, and it is 0110 on which we feel but little dispoition, as ccitalnly there would seem to be small need, to comment. No one'know.s better than tho gen tleman upon whom this ill-omened success Iras fallen, tint Lorofocoim proper, (or "democ racy," if tho name is more significant or agree able,) lias no occasion to take credit to itself for the result. It has but gained a temporary tri umph by means of the dissensions of its foes unless, indeed, tho scriptural denunciation against the house that is divided against itself U to rest upon the Whig Party. We arc but one, and a very inconsiderable one, of th.it pir ty ; but we may be permitted to say to its mem bers that no triumph is worthy of the naino that is not achieved in support of sound principles : and that defeat brings no disgrace upon a good CAUSE.

I'mvxiss, as our readers are mostly aware, is a native of Vermont, and though yet in the very primoof life, ho has won a reputa tion that sheds lustre both upon tho State oT his biith and his whole Country. His Greek blave, that is mentioned below, is pronounced by com petent critics to bo almost unsurpassed by any artistic creation of ancient or modern times. A propos to this subject, wo may remark that ini.itory steps were taken by the last Legislature to secure tho services of Powers in a way that his friends know would bo most acceptable to him ; to wit, in tho production of a statue of Lrii.vx Allen, to bo placed in ono of the vacant niches in tho Stato House. Such a work has long been, with Powers, an " artist's dream " that ho warmly desires to see realized. Tho Governor was authorized, last fill, to appoint a Committee to enter into tho necessary preliminary correspondence with Powers; and wo tru-t Ibis Commilleo (composed we believe of Gov. Paine and the Hon. George P. Marsh) will bu prepared to report somo progress in the in tho interesting work embraced in their ap pointment, at tho approaching session of tho Legislature. Vermont cannot certainly perforin a moro agreeable and worthy duty, than to em ploy tho exalted genius of one of her sons to perpctuato si memorial to tho patriotism and public services of another. New York, August 23, 1817. Powers' Greek Slave, This already f.im. 011s woik of art arrived in Ibis city a few days since, preparatory to a course of exhibition throughout tho country. It is just placed on its pedestal in tho exhibition room of the American Academy of Design on llroadway, and I have spent an hour in dwelling upon its great beauty of design, its perfect symmetry of form and pro portion, und exquisite finish. It will hi open for tho general inspection of editors and artists to-morrow, nnd the next day it will bo exhibited to tho public. High expectations h.ivo been raised vvilh regard to this iichieveuiont of art bv tho publications that havo preceded it; but, high as those expectations are, 1 think they will not bo disappointed. I shall not attempt any ailisli cal criticism upon it, for vvliicli I havo no dispo sition, and erhaps no ability ; but in my plain wav irive a very brief description of it, with a vvoid or two about tho artist and tho object of thu exhibition. It appears to mo difficult to imagine a moro beautiful und faultless representation of tho "bu man form divine." Hut for tho chain vvliicli binds her wrists the figure might bo taken for an live, right from tho hand of its Creator. She is standing in an easy attitude, resting principally 011 tho left limb, with tho right slightly bent, her head turned toward thu kit shoulder, her right baud resting upon 11 small pillar, around which is folded einbroidored drapery of inot exquisilo workmanship. So perfect is tho form, and so ilcllcato fiio finish, von foriret von arc looking at cold and lifeless marble, ami yet such a sentiment of purity and innocence Is stamped upon it that you lose ino impression that it is niiuo. u is ios a inonai man a spiritual Douy. iiui 1 am not going to undertake to describe it. Tho Greek Sl.ivo ot Powers Is Ids first finish ed statuo i und yet it is a work vvliicli has taken tno world captive. The history 01 arc pernaps does not aflbrd another instnlico liko it. His Kvo was commenced first, nnd several years ol study and labor ilovoted to it, but 11 is not yei finished. In tho mean time ho conceived his Greek slave, and pursued It to completion two copies of which have been made. Ho has also completed one other statue sinco no wis occu 111 Italy tho "Fisher Roy," holding a sea-shell to his ear which has been sold to Mr. Slovenon, of h'ngland, where it has attracted great atten tion and commanded universal admiration. Ho hasjust completed the model of a statue of John C. Calhoun, for citizens of Charleston, South Carolina, which will bo cut In marble as fast as Ins means and circumstances will enable mm lo do it. Of the two copies of tho Greek Slave, ono was purchased by Capt. Grant, of tho English Navy, and exhibited to the public awhilo in London, where It established tho fame of our Ainerictn 111 list as tho first sculptor of modern times. Tho other was ordered by Lord Ward, a wealthy no bleman of England". And hero I must say a word of tho circumstances which led to its exhi bition in this country. For ten years had Powers been toiling in Italy, perfecting himself in his art, struggling witfi poverty, and a young family around hint lo support. " Ah, who can tell how hard it Is to climb The steep where fame's proud temple shines afar I Ah, who can tell how many a soul sublime Ilalh felt the inlliiencc of ninlignant star, And waged with fortune on eternal war; Check'dliy the scotr of pride, by envy's Irown, And poveity's unconquerable bar, In life's low vale lemote, hath pined alone, Then dropp'd into the gram uupitied and unknown 1" Hut Powers struggled on and lived on, till he has made himself known, and added now honor to his country abroad, and his countrymen can now have the double satisfaction ot enjoying the fruits of his genius and at tho same time enable him to surmount the " unconquerable bar," and go on his way rejoicing, achieving new triumphs in art, and helping to give his country a reputa tion In the world " above all Greek, all Roman fame." This copy of tho Greek Slave had been or dered by Lord Ward, who had paid half the pur chase money in advance, to enable the artist to live while pursuing the work. When the work was about completed, Lord Ward, having learnt something of the circumstances of the artist that his means were inadequate to enable him to pursue his Labors with comfort and facility; that ho had five children, whom ho was solicitous to send to America to bo receiving an education while ho should continue toiling in his profes sion ; and that lie had for somo time been de-dr-oils of sending a work to his own countiy, both for tho love of country and with a view of re ceiving some aid from its exhibition Lord Ward said to him, " .Mr. Powers keep this statue for

yourself; send it to your country for exhibition, and mako me another copy at your conve nience." The grateful artist flew to tho studio of his fiiend and fellow-artist, Kellogg, who had been a companion with him in boyhood in Cincin nati, and who now, like himself, was toiling for an honorable fame in a foreign land, and dis closed the generous oiler which had been made to him. Hut, said he, whit can I do ! I have not the means to avail myself of the advantages of this oiler, kind as it is. If I leave my work here my family must starve. "Mr. Powers, (said Kellogg,) I told you, five years ago, that when you should get a work ready to send to America for exhibition, I would go and take charge of it for you, and set it ugo uig. I am reaily and willing to go now. "Thon, (said Power,) go nnd pack up your thing, nod 1 will pack up' the statue." It was iloro. The statuo of tho flreeL- Xlntn is hero; let our countrymen now tell the rest of we siory. The Steamer Sariumc. It will bo seen, by reference lo an advertise ment in our columns to-day, that tho pleasant, commodious and fast-sailing Steamer, Saranac, will commence her daily trips between St. Al bans and Whitehall on the 11th instant (to morrow.) She has been placed in tip-top con dition, and is in the hands of Capt. T. I). Ciiav .mav, (latc"of the Burlington and the Winooski,) who to the qualities of a good Sailor, adds those of the efficient and gentlemanly Commander. The route upon which the Saranac has been placed is one of tho most delightful on our beau tiful lake, and tho Directors of tho Company are multiplying their claims upon tho popular favor and patronage by such efforts to promote tho business convenience, facilities and comforts of tho public. The Sar.1n.1c has shown herself an excellent sea-boat, and will lose nothing of her reputation under tho management of Capt. CiiAr.HA'.'. Whether we shall pray that tho Captain's " shadow may never bo less," is a question upon width we aio not prepared, at present, to com mit pnrsclvcB. Wlint the people menu. The Memphis (Venn.)
