The Montpclier Patriot gives a flaming ac count of a jollification, at the Union House, in honor of Lieut.

Jons Sf.vt,uiu, Charles Lyman, Major W. T. Dt'RMiA-vt and others. If, as the Patriot avers, and as of course is tho c ise, this vtas meant to lio understood abroad as a imrthan demonstration, wo will bet a goose, mid givo an order on tho Gazette ofl'tro if we lose, that Hon. J.ittv Spaldin.;, and oilier Whigs, were not so apprised and we take the liberty fo say that it was neither good taste nor good uiinners in the Patriot, to commence its official narrative ofthe affair by representing that u was imiier Iho special patronage oi" thefricmh of the Atlminhtratian ami Ihe War."

You made a capital speech, and gnto a capital toast, and ought to bo above anything like trapping us "Mexican Whigs " info a po. fition whero we may bo looked upon as " friends of Iho Administration and tho War."

Wo commend lo the attention of our readers tho Ycry nhlo speech of Judge Phei.i-s, jn the Senalo of the Unifcd Stales, ou tho financial as pect of the existing War upon Mexico. Wn shall give (ho concluding porlion of it next week. It ia high prtifsji of this epeech of our distin guished Kena'for to say, that it comes quite up to llie expectation which hit eminent nnd con ceded ability has warranted. It isin no respect Inferior tnany of tho lucid and powerful exposi ttons oflhe inhiuity and rank folly attending th0 , origin and conduct of the War, which have liccn made In that iuignt assemblage, tho United States Senate. Vermont has just cause to bo proud of tho talent nnd statesmanship she has contributed to both branches of the National Legislature. For the emendations of our copy of Knowlcs' "Lines written in a churchyard," published In the l'Vcc Press three weeks ago, wo aro special ly obliged to our valued and always accurate friend ami correspondent! whose communication is subjoined Wc take great pleasuro in print ing " letter and book," notwithstanding they furnish anything but an agreeable commentary on both the excellence of our lit ing memory, nnd the value of our pocket mnemonic substitute. Any one of our readers who will tnako the comparison, will at once perceive that tho cor rections furnished by our correspondent, aro tri lling neither a? regards the dense, nor the lite rary finish, of tho very beautiful poem in ques tion. We are glad, therefore, to republish the poem, not only because "to it was written " by tho youthful teacher, " gone, not forgotten ; passed, not lost:" but because we acknowl edge n higher obligation, that binds us to con nive at no mutilation ofthe writings of ono " Whose tboiiuht-, like bats ofstinshine in shut rooms, Mid gloom all nloty, win llie world lo buhl." The following U the communication referred Clahkc: The beautiful stomas of Herbert Knowlcs, in the IV-sh of February Silli, deserve com plete necuracy ; which hy freuuettt tinucrihin and repiiblishini, (as well ashy mere errors oflhe press,) is but too liable to be impaired.
