When the rose, llio father slung tlio youngest child jn a plaid upon Id" breast, the molher bound a Utile bundle of valuables upon her back, each took one of the two cider children by the hand, and tliu.Tlliey resumed their journey. They rond lay along tho shore of tho castle biv, mid Ihen round the peak, and along the oilier base of the lic.ndl.inil, which Noel had as cended that morning. As they pn-sed the castle thev saw the tarl and dninc-tics bulling and for con em running about in great alarm. fgnniiiiil nl me cmse, tho poor teacher could not help recalling the biltcrwnuK which his lordship had spuhon, and thus addressed his wife. ' I think, Huchcl, that my ill-rcqiiillcd toils timing his tenantry might hao engaged him to . liltle interest in our fiilurc wclf.uo.' 'At all event'1. Duncan,' the wife replied, ' lie rived you an apology kind word., at le.i-t for the rudeness of Ins factor's men to us this diy ' Yes,' she continued, with a dash of indignation plowing In her face, ' he owed Jou help, he nw ed von Minnathv. ho owed ou justice, lie was Iioun-J'to ou,'to me, tn these liltle one?, by our very soirow, even if it had nut been caused bv himself.' l!ut either her indignation or her cricf, or hoth tnirclhcr, checl.id her utterance, and she "-aid no inure. Duncan did not vinture to reply. In truth, he was tumble. The wrong which had been done to him was at present hidden fiom Ills uew by Ms niiMcty alioiil the Inline, tie could not et define it or utter it. It lav dumb within him in tho deep recesses of grief and fear. With Rachel it was different ; she clear jv .saw the thought which her husband only rlindv felt. Allhoitrdi she cmtinued silent, llie thought was working in her snul. lor llii'licd face, hernuiekeuins steps, indicated how clour. ly she apprehended tho injustice of the earl's reply. ' Itouu carl that lie i-! he exclaimed within lierown mind,' with all his m outness he does not knw how sacred is a human home. What other carl, what other earthly dignitary, what human heart, so cruel as to hare acted as he and hi- bare, dune ! lie said, 'I do not know you I owe you nothing, you inconhlsruhlc boor on my estate !' The man was wrong, proud peer ! who taught thee so to speak. A better than thou did not refuse to know us, and to help us well. Morning anil evening lie eatnn to our solitary home, lie came to us with life, with bread. with reason, with family ties, with words from His Father's bosom, IIo calls its no longer servants, but friends. Arellis friends tn lie despi-ed ? ltefucd the cup of cold water ? Kin lies at thy door, my lord ! Again, Iioa ever, the current of her thought was interrupted. Uuncan and tlio children were funding still. J oey Ii id at length reached 'h cxlieinity of the headland. The weary bend ol tue I i.i y in which the ca-tle stood li.i-'lvcn tin veiled, and they were now prepared to wind round to the other b ie nf the crag, which ran ninng the snore ol the open sea, and skirted the road 1'iat led In t he town. Why are they (aiding here? What hn meted them so tn the gionnd! They cannot ludo 1 1 oui them-elvcs that niaht is li.i s-1 i met hi behind them. Yet there they stand, gazing light across the month of the liav, and far over into the level country beyond. A column of smoke is ri-mg against the eastern sky in the tli-tanco. The wind heaves it tn a side for a moment, then breaks it near tho ernuiid, and blight Haines issue, out beneath. Duncan and his family are again in tears. Rachel was the li-st tn speak, ' The hume where our babes, were born ! S Duncan ' She could say no more, House and school were in (limes. The ollieials of tho agent of Providence were burning them as worthless, and their late possessors had unexpectedly chanced in mm lovvarus the p.iintul sight. .Mournfully they withdrew their rrazc and re- fumed their ioiirnev. In a few minutes thev had doubled the capo of the crag, and the dull nreatn ot llio open sea beyond came up sorely against me laces ot the children. ' The sea is gathering for a storm, Rachel raid the teacher. ' Let us mend our steps, children,' replied the mother ; '.vu have to reach that spire shining fur before us ere we rest.' ' The sea rolled in heavily on their left. On their right, sloping up from the road, arose the northern tace ol Headland Crag.

The Ship Cnnn! Asnin. We believe it is admitted by common consent that no public enterprise lias yet been prop.osed that promises to bring about commercial results co important, with so small a comparative out lay of expense, as that of connecting hal; Champlaiti with tho River Kt. hiwrcnce, and thence vvitli the great Western hakes, by mean cf a Ship Canal from St, Johns to Caughna waga. hess than 500,000, it is siitV.ciently ascertained, will perfect this splendid avenue ol Trad and Commerce ; and, as we intimated to our readers, last week, aeliie steps arn now in progress to place the work in a condition for speedy completion. It is confidently anticinatci! by gentlemen having the enterprise especially in charge, that within eighteen months from tin date, a Ship Canal from tho outlet of our hak to tho navigable waters of tho St. hawrence a instance oi less man vu nines win uu open cd for " uso and occupation. The New York City papers the Courier and Ilnquircr, Imprest, Journal of Commerce and others are earnestly invoking public attention to this eminently feasible project, and seltiii; forth its commercial consequence to their city Its usefulness to New York, however, depend. almost wholly on tho enlargement of the North cm and Champlain Canal to a capacity sntlicient to admit the passago through It of vessels of 400 or 500 tons. That the State of New Yorli will find herself compelled to make this enlarge nicnt, ultimately, by tho " pressure of circuit! Manccs," the Lxpnss docs not nppear to doubt thoii'di the immediate sanction of llio people foi raising the necessary money seems to that paper not lo bo a thing so easily attainable, us it say "The irfni Canal leghn of this Ktite, inot iiuwisdy, we think, Kite the sanction of their power tul vote, to the lie up policy of the new Coti-tiwtinn. wicli,hr)enrsiind e.n, il not for ever, ems us ell "rout llic sloop oi piopelh-r cunuuelce ol ihe (ireal Jilvev." 'J'ho "Western Canal region" of New Yuri. is not likely to awaken at once to a lively ap preciation of tho great advantages tn bo derived from an enlargement of the Champlain Canal tho purposo of making it an avenue for a j siderablo portion of tho Trade of the West-, hakes. It may ho expected that sonic tlmo wilt idansn licfon- tlio tbritlmr " settlements ol Western New York will become convinced that thev have not precisely Ac avenue for this Trade. In the meantime (inasmuch as tho duals in Canada irill ho built) Western hake Commerce must tike such railway and other avenues to the Atlantic Markets, from Iliirlington and Whitehall, whilo the New Yorkers are wrang ling about sectional interests, as it may find. We in Vermont hold ourselves bound to be ready with at least two splendid railroads to subserve its wants and interests. Naturally enough, the llu(fulouians regard this project of securing water communication, by means of which vessels of 30D or 500 tons ay reach liiirlington " fiom the upper lakes illiont breaking bulk, ' with emphatic ilisl.tvor. l'he iJul.alo A.iirr.iJrr.ii very amy ctuieu piper, -, pronoimcct it a "simpiy ridiculous numuug, though we dn not learn precisely on what rounds. Tho Vitlr'wt i- .hmrmtl ol that city tieats it something less cavalierly, and argues galn't its assiiniid usefulness and desirable ness, in its comments upon the article in tue hiurunl nf Commerce, to which we alluded last week, the latter paper repudiates tho Caughna- a Canal cnterpnsc because it says, if com pleted, transportation to and through it would attended with more l is., would occupy more lime, would bo less certain ns to dates of arrival and depaiturc, and in other respects of minor onscquencc, would bo far less desirable than through the already established Ihio Canal. Itut the advantage of the Mrlc Canal route, which tho Journal pionniinccs "contrulmmj," s thus staled in its own language: Hie tiroiKiscd mule is too fir North to be mailable nt the tuiR'fWlu'U, it ever, it wouui he most needed ely in the sprim: mid late in the t.ul.

As in 1839, the year that preceded the great revo lution of 1810, when radical Locofucoism re ceived a popular rcbukathat well nigh broku ils heart, and that trill Ite repealed in 1818, the People of this Slate gave very little attention to their annual election, and siill'ercd iwv. in uu - ineroits signal instances, to exeit no influence ,. , ,, ,. ... ,, ,, , upo the balloting. I well, xerj well.knowti (and to no one, probably, belter known than to the editor of tho Vermont Patriot) that llio choice of town representatives, throughout tho State, was allectcd liy local questions, and con- trolled by local questions, to an extent that is almost without a parallel that Lccofocos were ' returned by strong hig towns, and in ono Instance- certainly a Whig was returned by a strong Icofoco town (llarre) that u large body of Whigs abstained from voting at all (as is proven by tho diminished aggregate volo from eieu ,isi year) under the conviction that no na tional or party issues were involved, especially, in the contest, 'ihese facts were well under stood, in Vermont at least, and few men of either party have the hardihood to deny them. The Vermont Patriot, however, is not ll.o paper to haggle about facts when it wants tu make party capital. Wo need baldly instance its shameless usscition, made just before the election, that (,en.

On this occasion the smoothed and striated rocks nlong v niooski river, in Ilolluii, were frequently cited, and one of them was exhibited in bold traces upon the black board, by Prof. Adfins.

Vt.l, ..,.,r..aBn,;iirf libnaelf ns Clll- plojed by the agent of une of the factories at Lowell lur thi purpose of engaging tidily young woman to proceed lo that city, there tu be employed in said fac tory. Several ot the.se persons ho engaged by this Cic nrrived in this city, within a lew das nnd have gone to Lowell, but Ui.m application to the afore said agent, have been told that he knew nothing about llic mailer they mint go tu .1r. Chase .' Some ol these fein ties may have found einplojmcnt at Liwell , while others ol Iiiein have returned lo this city, and found friends or relatives, under whose protection lliey now are; having ascertained much to their surprr-u and di.ippouiliiient, that llie) had been most outra geously imposed upon. Last Thuisd.iy oenmg. three voung, nnd to nll np iie.irances, respectable females, arrived by ihe W est ern mad nt the depot of the Woiccster ltmlroad, in company w ith the aforesaid Cause, who procuied ji carriage and went in company with tlien.i lu n hotel. These ui-ic entire strangers in llus partol the c. uutry, nnd n!u to c.-icb other. niul had entril-ted their cheeks lor their baggage to llie cure ol Chase. They Inst saw their trunks at (h - di p it, and Hie last that twu hi iiio nuuib-r s iw ul Chase w.is at the above mentioned ho tel. The trunks belonging to them contain-d their clothing, nnd nl-u nearly nil their money. Hearing nothing Pom r,7wir, tliey came to the sad conclusion lh.it t'ley had been uuposi.. upon, mid two ot them, loiluiKiiely having sullieient inonev to dclra) their ne cessary expenses baik, concluded to letum home, wtueii nicy cu. i on ,s.iiiiriijy. The other, not being so well provi.led for, determin ed to proceed to Lowell, and run die risk ot obtaining einpiujment. She went to Lowell on I'ndny, nud upon ta ling at the Agent's otlice, received the same answer thai had been given to oibeis, that she must, go to Jr. Chase. Sadly disappointed in the object ot her long, journey, she touk ihe cars on Saturday morn ing lor tins city, and among the passengeis, discovered the man who had deceived her. On arriving at the deput,uud linking inquiries of Chase os to her bag gage, (among which vvus j in money,) nnd in rela lion to her piomisjil employment in Lowell, he told her lo wait where she was half on hour, when. he would return, and " make nil matter) right." This was in the niorn.iig, and the poor girl waited at the depol until ball-past 3 o'clock in the ufternoon, when she was convinced that -he had indeed been the dupe ol a base beam d imimster.
