BURilNGTON FREE PRESS, FRIDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 10, 1847. Jfrcc Hcs0, IHUtMNOTON, Vt. FI1IDAY MOItNlNO, DrXKMUI.R to, 1SI7. " In THE UAKK AMI TltOUBLEtl M0IITT1IAT Is uroN us, them: is no Star above the noitizos JOU1VE USA OLEAJl III' LIMIT, KXCEPTINU THE INTELLIGENT, I'ATKtUTlC WllW 1'AnTV OF THE U.hted States." Daniel HVtWcr. Mr. Clny' Speech. Wo doubt not Unit, ere now, most nr our Tenders have rend, moic tliitn once, llio last no Lie contribution of Hkmiv Clav to the Peace acencies that nre at work to compel a cessation of this nntiatur.il and indefensible war unnatu ral, because it Is between people professing and avowing the same great principles of political Freedom and I'.quulily, and indefensible, be cause it was commenced without sufficient cause, nnd is not vv.iged to maintain any ol those great principles. It is getting to bo worse than idle (or the sinologists of Mr. Polk to as sert and re-assert the tcn-times-refuted preten ces on which the course of that short-sighted politician is justilied. The story of wrongs in flicted by Mexico on tin American l'eople.of her refusal to pay her indebtedness to our citizens, and of her invasion of our soil, have grown very Male. It is a miserable and shallow pretence, witVnot enough of truth in it to galvanize it into a respectable show of life. And, what i belter for the cause o( l'caco and Humanity, the I'Eon.K of the United States know it. The numbers of those who are deluded by the so phistries of the Administration and its parasites, and who have been restrained from the expres sion of their sentiments of abhorrence of the war and its authors, arc growing fewer every diy. Tlie ciLORV of an unjut and aggressive war, waged by a great, enlightened, civilized, christianized, and I m:r. government, like ours, upm a feeble and distracted neighbor of similar political faith, is assuming its true size and n'wpe, as the faKc iitmo-phcTC which has been created for it, t lie fogs and clouds of a false Patriotism, arc passing away. Hut the war has been "sanctioned by Con gress," ray the Presses of Mr. Polk. Soil has, we admit by a species of unworthy jugglery, lo be sure, but sanctioned, nevertheless. Jtut, in the name of common scne, does that make it any more a just war, any the less iniquitous in its commencement, or any the less deserving the strenuous efforts of all friend of Immunity and the true honor of their country, to bring it to an immediate termination 1 Iiecause it has been sanctioned by Congress is a reaon why our armies should obey the orders of the Gov ernment and fight its battles ; and is a reason why the heroic valor and good conduct of those Armies should receive the high commendation they meiit. We cast no jot of the responi-1 bility of the war upon the gallant officers and j soldiers hoe blood has been shed in Mexico, i We admire their heroism and self-sacrificing energy, worthy, as they arc, tho noblest cause that can engage human sympathies and human eiTorts. Hut this is not such a cause; and the war should he tnaile to cruse. Thero is nut, in our judgment, a single reason under heaven, that respects cither tho nation . t .. , . rights or the , nation h liiuior, mat ucmaims us cniiuiiiiaiicu , its continuance i another da v. Nothing'has yet been secured by it but renown for tho prowess of our arms. No j boundary has been established, (indeed all liouu-1 daries appear now to bo uncertain !) nor lias a dollar of the " indemnity money " been brought nearer to a claimant's pocket. For every "American citizen" that has been "murder ed," as Locofoco papers love to say, ten misera ble Mexicans have been sent to their final ac count. The score of "injuries," at least, may bo said to bo fairly balanced ! Mexico has been, ono might reasonably think, sufficiently chastised, and mado to perceive the heinous ness of robbing our citizen, and of refusing lo pay her own dcUs r. lesson which Mississippi nnd Alabama rcpudiators have been appropri ately engaged in teaching her ! She was a binkriipt before the war began, nnd i-be is ten- times a bankrupt now her debts increased, her (ioverti incut overthrown, and her means of pay ment destroyed and still the wonder among the war-paity is that she docs not "pay up" nnd thus stop the war! Who i there to " pay up," or to stop the war J She has no (iovcni-mc-iit that is likely to lat 21 hours! She is driven to tho wall; and there the stands, like a niKir ricketv bov. vv hilo w? Yankees for " AiiL'lo fl.ixons," us we take pride in calling ourselves), I like a big bully, eland shaking our big lists at her defenceless, though obstinate, head ! We ' are a great people, and this is a magnanimous j war ! Nobly has Mr. t"i..v established his claim to the mo-t bonoiablo title thai can be given to ruin the (ir.EAT Pacihcatoi: by tlie stand he has taken in reference to this abominable war. lie stands as the champion of Higlit, Justice, Humanity, and the true Honor of his Country. In obedience to the maxim that has always regulated bis public career, he has, in this as in oilier memorable instances, resolved "in HO IIIOIIT AMI KEAIl NO MAS;" SI lid Iho calm consciousness of rectitude places him far above the reach of the malice and bitter abuse that havo always pursued him through a long, useful and honorable life. He stands before the American People, and the world, at tho Advo cate ok Peace, and the decidid opponent of the further continuance of tins unnecessnrr war; and this position confers more lienor upon lii tit than could any bestow inent of Place and Power, while, at Iho tamo lime, it designates him as the uorlhiesl lo ifctfic them. We cannot better conclude than by nuoliii" the following from the ('hiislian World, a paper printed in lioston, and "one of the most car. "nest and influential of thoso journals intent "on testing every institution and usage by the "ttand.ird of Christianity, nnd fearlessly con "detuning ull that do not bear its test, Wi find the extract in tho New York Tribune: " Therefore wc nre rxtrrmeiy filnu iiini sum uq whin authority ns Mr. Clay, should have qualified ibe vote i,f supplies by such plain lani;uii!e us Hint just quoted, lie sreiuslo ihiuk that a politician ill public life, isuoltolell an untrulli more ilinii a common man in private life For ibis opinion, lints publicly and plainly expressed, c beaitily thank him.

In their rcicctlte couniumilics, and cxpiesing their views, feelings and opinions on litis subject. Mr. Clay thinks that congress will not be hindered but helped in ils action against the war by a general expression oflhc same soil by the, people.

"Notbeini? erv nrdent .admirers of Mr. Clav. we are happy in record our 'nlislaclion at this step, liven supposing (which we do not believe) thai this is a "bid for the Presidency," we are glad when a man seeks to clcviiie himself by taking the side of Pence Justice nnd l.ioeriy, , The Telegraph. We had hoped, In common with many of our readers doubtless, that Burlington would by the 1st inst. have been in Telegraphic commtmica- lion with Washington. Tho delay, we happen to know, is not by any means attributable to the Trustees or tho Contractor, who arc, and have been, faithful and iinwcatlcd in their eiTorts to complete the work. The posts are nil up on the entire distance from Troy to Montreal, nnd tho wire for all the northern section, from White- hull to Montreal, is already distributed along the line, nnd the glass caps are nearly prepared. The delay is occasioned solely by the failure of the .Mills to supply the Wire; thon-Wcof which wa positively engaged, on cash contracts, to be delivered by the 1st of Nuvombcr. Tho Mills are yet behind in their contracts, and it may be that the line will not bo opened for operation be. fore tho 1st of January, though no effort will be spared to secure the earlier completion of thi enterprise, the importance of which to the com munity generally, as well as its value as an in- vestment to stockholders, becomes every day more certain.

Wo had the pleasure of attending the Introductory Lecture, on Wednesday livening, and, in com mon with tho largo andienco present, wero greatly delighted with the general plan of Mr. HuoNMiN, the outline of which ho drew and il lustrated with eminent clearness and beauty.

Tho Wnr. Nothing new from the theatre of this very popular and patriotic War. (We hope this will please the Locofoco.) The steamer Alabama bus arrived nt New Orleans, bringing a large number ol Officers, among whom we notice the names of Generals .Shields and (Quitman, Col, Hahnev, the gal lant hero of Cerro Gordo, and Capt Clav. The Mexican Congress had assembled at Queretaro on the 2d. They subsequently re moved to the City of Morclia, State of Micho can, to get rid of tho military, by which they were overawed, A revolution had broken nut at Guadalaxara in favor of the election of Fareas to the Presi dency.

Parcdes is at Tulanign, and has openly pro nounced in favor of a monarchy, teconded by Ihe garrison at Mazatlan. Some of tho Mexican States entertain nn un quenchable hatred of the Americans, and ex press no desire for peace. Jj The Sentinel f- Democrat occasionally wastes a great deal of nvvliwardly-proclaiincd patriotism, and goes into a statn of wholly su- per i and iiiigrammatical indignation, over what it considers our atrocious sentiments touch ing this pleasant littlo skirmish between the United States and .Mexico. A couple of weeks ago, we called the war i-ACcrable, and "drscr- edly execrable;" whereat the vounir nronbet who talks turkey " in tho Sentinel, with a tear on the end of bis nose, exclaims : " Such is ibe language of n journal in our midst Of course it is, (J masticated youth, and it arises Irmn the little circumstance that the iour- nal alluded lo happens to Mine precisely what it says about tho war a circumstance that is allowed to modify tho sentiments of somo jour nils.

And this accounts for tho general brevity of our extracts Troiii a certain "journal in our- midst," not by nny means-well known as the " lialeiinrill in;llf" of fbo I'iAviick l',iiers. ' - Tho Union of the Colleges. Wo havo noticed In several papers allusions to the unsuccessful termination of tho negotia tions for uniting Ilurllngton and Mlddlebnry Colleges. This project is one so manifestly de sirable, on account of tho beneficial results to the cause of Education that would (low from Its accomplishment, that wo heard with sincere re gret of even the temporary fallnro of the efforts that were in progress to secure it. The char acter of tho distinguished gentlemen composing the Committee of Conference on the part of the two Institutions, induced us to form the most sanguine hopes that an arrangement would bo made that should bo mutually satisfactory, and tint should, in its ultimato results, greatly ad vance the highest Interests of Kducation, and, consequently, of our State. Wc were, therefore, scarcely less surprised than pained to learn that no arrangement bad been agreed upon by this Committee excepting one which, In our judg ment, could not bo expected to meet tho appro bation of tho Trustees of tho University, in view of tho somewhat peculiar position which that Institution at present occupies; wo allude, of course, to the recent mnnillcent subscription in her behalf, and the reciprocal rights and obli gations growing cut of it. That the negotiations for the union may be renewed, and result auspiciously for the cause of sound learning in our Stale, wo confidently hope. It really appears to us that the obstacles in the way of tho union are so inconsiderable, and the reasonsor it are so numerous and co gent, that these Colleges must almost come to gether by the sheer preponderance of their own centripetal tendency. Wo trust they may not be kept apart by the jealousies or the indiscre tions of their friends. If one plan is not accept able to either College, " tiiv again !" The cud sought is worth the labor and tho pains. Wo were a little sorry to see, in the Windsor Chronicle, the somewhat tart commentary of the learned and estimable President of Middlebnry College upon tho preamble and resolution adop ted by the Trustees of the University, " declin ing the p.oposition for a union in the ioiim in WHICH IT HAS COME nEFOUE THEM." Wo think the error of Dr. Labakee (for whom wo have the highest respect, and who wo doubt not sin cerely desires that a union may bo effected on terms that shall promote tho common object of both Institutions,) consists in imputing to the University Committee plenipotentiary powers in tho negotiation ; whereas they were commis sioned simply to make, receive and report propo sitions, for the final action of the Trustees. We subjoin a commuiiicctinn in reply to the letter of President L.vnAr.r.E, together with tho letter from President Wiieelek to the Ilditor of , , . , . , . the I crmonl Chronicle ; renewing the expression of our hope that the union, so desirable for the great lldiicational interests of the State, may yet bo cflectcd. tl'or the Free Press.) I havo noliced in several papers, within the last few weeks, a preamble and resolution pur polling to be from Ihe Corporation of the Uni versity of Vermont, accompanied by a commen tary, in t lie form of a letter, addressed to Presi dent Wheeler by President 1ibaree. When I first read lids letter, I concluded that no public notice would be taken of it, as I im agined no special evil could result from it. 1 1 li.ul no Uoubt, that thoo who lenrlit read it would sou at once, that it is ono of those con fused, mistaken things, which, even good and intelligent men, under the influence of feeling, are sometimes left to write. Hut some of my neighbors fear that this letter mav do mischief, if it is not answered; though they confess, that ii is nanny mo result oi misapprehension. I mut say, however, tint I cannot see any special Cil" f'T nn answer, thcr than what'is lobe loiinii iiiacarciiii inspeciion oi me preamble resolution, and letter. Still a few historical facts may bo of service. It seems that the Corporation of the University ask three men to go to Vcrgennes, and talk up the subject of the "union of the two Institutions, with three other men from Middlebury College, without giving them any other powers or in structions, than to lull;, hear, return, and report to them what was said, that, they might under stand tho position of tilings, witli a view to ef fect a union. In other words: the committee f- !. ?T. . . I I . iri'ui iiiu iiiYtTMiv nau no hou-prs or in-tnic- tions to conclude, term ; but to ascertain ami re- ! port what terms could be had.

It appears fromlheir resolutions.tli.it Ibe Cor- poration of Iho University iPL'.ird tho iwistenco of two colleges, in Vermont, us n hindrance to the cause of sound learniiii, and think that n strenuous ellbrt for a union should be inadc; out sun mrij ott ituijuugr u uesi to urine mem on Ihe terms of a certain plan, which was pretenlcd lo them. In all this, President Iibareo seems to dis- cover inconsistencies, evidence of bad faith, and oven a "final resolution to dtcline further nego tiation on Ihe subject." lint really I cannot sec ail this, or any part id it. Tho Corporation of tho University were de sirous of a union on such terms, that the one institution could promote, more efficiently, tlie ends for which both wero organized, namely, tho interests of learning, morality nnd religion. Now, how does it follow, that, becauso said Cor poration think that a strenuous effort should bo ui iiie lor such a union, lliey aro bound to regard this jmrticular efl'ort as at all likely to effect it I How does it follow, that the terms proposed would moro ellectuolly promote tho cau-e of lib eral learning, if adopted ? It by no means fol lows because said Corporation felt obliged, in conscience, " to decline) the proposition for a union in llio form in w hich it camo before tbetn," that they thereby " dually resolve to decline fur ther action on the subject." Yet President Iibarec so reasons and to speaks. The Corporation of tho University, it seems, I fhink that two Colleges " occasion n wasteful I application of public charities" that tho remo. valol llio University would uo attended ny an imincnso loss of property that pood faith lo their creditors forbids placing their means nt such hazard, as would attend the submission of tho ipiestion of location. In tlieo views, President I.abarco seems to find a charge upon Middlebury College of prodi gality. 'Ho also seems to imply, that, if tho Corporation of llio University cannot, in L'ood faith to their creditors, hazard their means by submitting the ipiestion of locution, they should have said so, long before ; mid In their failing to do 60, have done great injustice to Middlebury College.- Hut it In no wl o follow?, becauso said Corpo ration say that two Colleges create an unneces sary tax upon the public, that they thereby af firm that cither College does not manage Its means as discreetly as It poslbly can. And how could tho Corporation of tho University, with any propriety, say to Middlebnry College that they could not placo their means at hazard, before they knew that Middlcburv College would insist on such a condition. And when this wns known, did they not examine tho subject, come to a coticltsion, and render their iinswcr as sum as they cmihl ! President Labarco seems to bo astonished tint the Corporation of the University did not suggest some modification of the plan of union proposed, or deviso a new one, sinco they de clined the one which came before thein. Ho seems to think that, by such a course, " con Hiding views might have been harmonized," and the two Colleges united. I nm not a little at loss to know how to un derstand this. The writer is doubtless honest in expressing such views. Hence my trouble to know what to make of them. Tho leading men of tho Fellows of Middlebnry College put it down as a "sine qua non" of any plan of union, thai the ijiiestion of location should be submitted In an arbitration that any plan, which did not have this condition in it, would bo " blown upon by the Fellows of Middlebnry College." This was un derstood by tho Corporation of the University. Therefore, when they came to tho solemn con viction, tiiat duty forbade such a Piibmision, on their part, what more wastherc to sail or do about plans! Middlebury College, according to its leading men, inflexibly Insists that no union shall tale, place, i"jf-' University peril its means j in roplifiei'rift'erslty fays,.wc cannot in conscience do this ; tho forfeitures and evils that would result from a cliango of its present sue, would lie so mamioiu and serious lorleit ures and evils that would result through the necessary operation of :law, independent of any stipulations in the bill.1 Thus each College has its " sine qua non." That of Middlebury Col lege is the submission of the question of loca tion; that of the University is, that its funds shall not bo put in jeopardy by such a submis sion. Hero tlie matter comes to a stand. Now, then, if President Labarco lias ingenuity enough to devise a plan, that shall retain and yet "reconcile these two conllicting" "sine qua nons," so as to come to a " harmonious result," he is certainly entitled to great praise for his power of diplomatic invention. The fact is, lo effect a union of the two Col leges, one of the parties must yield its " sine qua non," Shall it be Middlebury College or the University? What docs the cause of the best and highest forms of learning in Vermont re quire 1 lly which would this cause lo'e the least and gain the most ? This is the true ques tion. Neither institution is any thing but an agency in the system of means adopted for un folding and pcrlectingtlic moral and intellectual energies of the people, and for carrying forward both individuals and the bodv -politic to their ulti mate end. These institutions should not bo regarded as having rights independent of the cause of Kducation, or as antagonistical to eacli other. Neither has rights or duties which are not grounded in the one ureal and common cause ''.'"'' ''!""'!" !e",r"i,"g T.T 'll1,cslit,,n is "0- which institution shall submit to Ihe other; not bv any means ; but what do the interests of IM- ucation, whose sen ants they arc, require of each in the tnaUer of union, and especially of location. Tho University has in its possession a large available property. Middlebury College has but very little. Should tho University go to Mid dlebury, then the cause of liberal learning, on account of tlie losses it would sustain, would havo left to it but small means, while it would be loaded and embarrassed with heavy li.ibilitic In such an event all means of importance vvouid escape, while debts, "huge and grim," would remain. Hut on tlie other hand, should Middle burv College go to Ilurllngton, and unite witli the Univer.sitv. then the r.nn.si of liber.il leiirn. ing vvouid retain its means, for the most part, and bo able lo carrv cn its onerations eliicientlv. and really tlourishv Now I ask which party should yield its "sme qua non" Which is reasonable, which unreasonable ?

Those of our cit.zcns whoso attention may havo been attracted by the " raw-head and bloody-bones" of a fine Duck, nrtistically ar ranged over the iron railing that protects people from getting into Harrington's Market by a short process that is moie simple than it is safe, may have imagined that they would find Venisov within, on tho principle laid down by Tom Moore in regard to tlie Alderman's " corpora tion," which he pronounced -An outward and visible sicn Of an inward good dinner nnd pint of small wine." If to, all we can say is that they may rather prido themselves on tho accuracy of their rea soning on tho subject, for better Venison than lie (IlAnr.i.v.TON) had on tale, while that skin kept tho legs of his railing warm, doesn't run in the woods and we happen to hnow it, as Mike Uooney pointedly observed, " by token of the small luck that fell to manners in the aling of it!"

Mr. Vou.vo is greatly in error if lie supposes we have any disposition to speak dis paragingly cither ol him or Ins labors in tho cause of Science; On the contrary, we desire to speak of both with tlie respect that is due tu the honesty, sincerity and uprightness of his character and motives.

The venerable AL11KRT (1ALLATIN, with no political ambition tu serve, and no motive but patriotism to induco him to embark in the exciting discussions of the day, has published a piinpblet, entitled "Pcaco willi Mexico," in which lie points out the origin and course of our troubles with .Mexico, and tbo true causes of the existing war. It is a glorious testimonial, from an old and tried Patriot and Statesman, of his lovo of Truth and Justice, and of his abiding zeal for tbo honor and glory of bis country. Although this pamphlet was written without the knowledge of Mr. Clay's, speech, it is both sur prising and, in a still higher degree, gratifying to observe how nearly identical aro tho views and conclusions of these great men, respecting this miserable war. We shall take nn early occasion to lay before our readers extracts from this powerful pain pblet, which wo would like to seo in tho hands of every American citizen. We believe our State and County Committees could in no way better tlischargo their duty, to spread and advo- cato sound principles and sound Whig doctrine, than by circulating this paper of Mr. (iali.atin Wo trust U can lu found at Kd wards' Hook store, lict ever)' one who desires to read the opinions upon tho war of a Statesman, venera blo from ago and unsurpassed for political wis- , i .1 - . i( . dom, and tho experience that produces wsdoin, . .i.: ...t.i : ..... ..

The sr.vnsTV-Eioimi Annual Meeting of tbo Vermont Colonization Society was hold in tiie Ilrlck Church, Montpelier, on Thursday evening the 21st ult. The President, tho Hon. Samuel C.

Mr llnooKs sustained his resolution in an effective and convincing argument, w hich must have cariied tho assent ol every mind present. Tlie meeting was addressed by the Hcv. TiioV Kidder of Middlesex, IIenrv Stevens, IUi. of Ihrnet, and others; and it is believed that all retired from it witli increasing confidence in t lie scheme of Colonization, as the most effective plan jet devised for benefitting an oppressed and injured race. It was voted that the Sth Article of the Con stitution be amended, so as to read thus: The Annual Meeting of this Society shall be liolden in Montpelier on tho Tucsd ij-evening, next preceding the third Tliursd iy, in October.

Tlie Society of Friend-, the General Assembly of uio t-reiuyieriaii t-.nnn.-ii, an j a lew oilier f.cclo siastical ISodies, had spoken, but thero were none lo hear. A few Legislatures had looked at tbo existing wrongs and the impending evils, but no ecclesiastical or legislative Indies had combined their wisdom and energies in any per manent and ell'ectivo plans of relief. What vision from: Africa met your eye, as you sat in that first meeting enquiring after the means of her redemption ? Africa was a land of thick darkness unvisitcd by tlie benevolent, and unknown to all but pirates. Its tribes were so sivage, that no merchant vessel could laud among thein. None but pirates and slavo tra ders would venture there. Fifty thousand slaves were then shipped annually from tho western cocst ; and tho tribes alotir that crest were sunk lo the lowest depths of dei?r.td.ition. uml b.nl added to the ferocities of savageism, all tho vi ces vviiicn savages wero capable of learning from pirates and slave traders.

Wo can point to Christian missions planted under Colonial protection to hundreds of converts from hcatlianisin, and to 00,000 heathen, sav age men brought under treaty stipulation, and consequently subjected to the inlhience of civ ilization. And we can claim at leat no small part of what has been done in our own country for awakening tho public mind and con-cienco to tlie wrongs of slavery, and to the unalterable purpose inai it must and shall cease from our and. If, from this general retrospect, wo turn to the events of the last year, wo find them fraught both with encouragement and solemn admoni tion. Death has removed some who have long stood by our sidu and mingled their sympathies and labors with ours. One member ol'tlie Il.iard of Managers and one nf our Vice Presidents have ceased from their labor. Archibald W. IIvde, I-.sq,, who lias long been a friend and patron of our enterprise, and for eight years a member of our Hoard, deceased during the last winter.

In a good old age, after i life of honorable and n-eful toll, ho went down to the cnivo ripe for a better world. Judiro White was ono of the founders of this Societv, in lbl!). lie was elected one of llu- Hoard of Managers at tbo tir-t meeting, and this office. or tli.it of Vice Pre-idem, he held to the dav of his death, vv e invariably found him at his po-t of duty. lie was one of the earliest advocates of measures for the improvement of the colored people. Near thirty jears ago, while a member ol the Legi-Kuure' of tbo State, we find liim moving an address to Congress on the subject of slavery and tho -lave trade. He was ap pointed Chairin-in of Ihe Committee to draff that address. That address, which may be found in the Journal of the House for the year 1819, is alike creditable to his talents and lii pio'y. Judge White wa a constant and liberal con tributor to the funds of our Society, and was ever ready to aid tlie cau-e by every means in his power. In January, IS Ifi at the adviniced age of 711 years, he went lo Washington a ono ol the Delegates from this Societv to attend tho annual meeting of the parent Society. He re turned greatly encouraged by what he bad -eon and beard, and made to you bis report at our la-t anniversary. Our ctu-e b.is lnt another stedfi-l friend, du ring the past vcar, in Ihe death of Mr. Nathan Latiirop of ll-sex, Chittenden County.

Deacon Sam uel Tracy, under u commission from the Amer ican Colonization Societv, continued hi, labor-, two or three months after our hist anniver-urv and collected and forwarded from a few towns in this state, 6:170 30 to the Parent Society As Mr. Tr.icv found it necessary to withdraw from this field of l.ilnr, earlv in the year, tho Secretary, witli the adv ice of some of the offi cers, sent a commission to tlie Rev. S. s nold, of Wi-tminstcr, who is f ivorably known as an earnest friend an I Micces-nil advocate of colonization. Mr. Arnold commenced his la bors with encouraging prospect-, but was oon obliged to relinqui-h his agency by filial duty to an aged 1 ather, now over 100 years old.
