m BURLINGTON FREE PRESS, FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 17, 1848. unbecoming in me to second the motion which has I been made lor extending the last honors of the Senate to him who, forty-live years ago, was a member ol this body) who, nt t he time of Ins death, was among the olilest members of the. House ol Representatives, ami who, putting the years of his service together, was the oldest of all tlm members of the American Govern ment. r The culogium of Mr. Adams is made in the fnr,"Inl his life, winch the Senator trout Mnssailiiwlls ' Dav is) lias so strikingly stated ! that, liom early man hood to uctogenatian age, he has been conMmitl) ami most honorably employed In the public seivice. t or n period ol more than lil'iy years, from the tune "' " first appointment as minister abroad under ton to his last election to the House ol .lives by the people of his unlive district, he has been con Plainly retaineil in the public service, and that, not M the favor ol a Sovereign, or by beredilaiy title, but bv tbetiective appointments ol rcnii bhean govcrnnien . This lael makes llie eulogy of the illustrious deceased, i'or what, except a union ol all the qualities winch command the eteem and confidence ol man, could have ensured a public service so long, by appointments tree and Iroin sources o variad anil ex ulted I Mnii-ter ninnv limes abroad i member ol this body! member of the House ol Representatives ; Cab. iuet minister; President of the United States; such has been llie galaxy ol his splendid appointment. Ami what hut moral excellence the most perlect; in tellectual ability the most eminent : lidelity the most Hni.iiirimr . wi tlm most nselid . would have com manded sucli a succession ol sppoiunneuts so exalted, and from sources so various and so eminent i Nothing less could bine commanded such a series ol appoint ments; and accordingly we sec thei union ol all tnese trreat oualuies in him who has received them. In this long career ol public erv ice .Mr. Adams was distinguished not only by lailhlul altenlion to all the great duties id his stations, but toall their less and mi nor duties, lie was not the Salaminian gilley, to Is- launched only on extraordinary occasions, but he was the ready vessel, always launched when the duties ol Ins station required it, be tliei occasion great or small As President, as cabinet minister, as minister abroad, he examiueil all questions that came betore him, and examined all, in nil their parts, in all the minutia' oi theirdcinil, as well as in till the vastness of their coin piclietision. t As Senator, as n member of the House of Representatives, the obscure coinmitlee room was as much the witness of Ins laborious application to the diudgeryol legislation as the linllsnl the two nouses were to the ever-ready speech, replete witli knowl edge, which instructed all bearers, enlightened all sub jects, and gave dignity and ornament to debate. In the observance of all the proprieties ol life, Mr. Adams was a most noble and impressive example. He cultivated the minor as well as the greater virtues Wherever Ins presence would give mil and counten ance lo what was useful and honorable to man, there he was. In the c.crci.-e ot Ins school and cdi the col lege in the meritorious meetings ol the agricultural, inech'iiiical and societies, in attendance upon Divine worship he gave the punctual attend ance rarely seen but in those who are Irce Iroin the weight ol public caies. Punctual to every duty, death found him at the pot of duty; and where else could it have loiiud him, r.t any stage of his career, lor the liny years ol hisillus. irious public hie I From the titue'nt hi lirst appoint ment by Washington to his last election by the people of his native town, wheie could death have louiul him but ut llie post nf duly I At that post, in the luhic-s ol age, in the ripeness of renown, crowned with Illin ois, surrounded by his tamily, his Iricnds and admir ers, und in the very presence id the national repicsen tation, he has been galhcicd to his lathers, leaving be hind him the meinury ot public services which are llie lii-loty cl his country lor half a century, and the ex ample id' a lite, public und private, which should be the stuilyaud the model ol the getierationsot his coun try men.

Wo believe that pro-slavery war ia about to be peace that will provo ratal to our national inleg- rity. It is adinilted that tho Treaty mikes 110 modification ofthe extent of territorial " indent nily"!) granted to the United States, nor of the amount to be paid therefor. Ati extent of ter ritory, therefore, cmial to G5 or 70 states of the size of Vermont, witli a large and mixed popu. lalion, who are filled neither by training, char acter, knowledge, nor by their own wishes, to become citizens of this Republic, will compoo hereafter, a portion of these United Slates. The consequences that are likely to result from the introduction of such a mass of incongruous ele ments into a Union already weakened, belli by its extent and its various and conflicting iutercslH and habits, appear to us to be obi inns the just relative importance of tlie Free North will be completely destroyed, the balance of power will bo transferred to a seel ion of the Union that is hostile to l'Veo Labor, its growth and prosperity, and bound by its own supposed interest to sliapo tho legislation and diplomacy oftho Country in conformity with that hostility. This is tlie light in which "the end of these things" appears to us. Wo trust wo may prove a erroneous in our liewf. as ue are sin cere in Ihciu. The Tree IlrlilRC Cnc-Iccllon of the S. Hiiurcinc t;oiii.a Muriv of our readers arc probably aware that ilm raso oftho West River Bridge Co. w. Dix niul others, which had been carried to the U. S. Supreme Court, by Writ of Lrrnr, from the de cision oftlio Supreme ConitofVerninnt, has re ccnttv been armictl bv Mr. l'.r.sTtit nm 1 Judge for the Plaintiff-, ami by Judge ' for tlic ilefeiiiliitits, in F.rror. The ash-, iugttin correspondents of the New York papers ' contnincil notices, nt the time, of the case and the arguments of the eminent counsel, but not in shape to be intelligible cither lo ourselves or our readers. We therefore refrained from copy- lug tliciti with the purpose of obtaining, as early us possible, an ntithcitth abstract of tho points taken in the case, and tho Una! judgment of the exalted tribunal before which it was decided. WchavcgreaPsatisfactitm, to day, in present ing such an abstract, and from a sotirco that warrants us in claiming for it entire accuracy, The case is one of very considerable impor tance, in this ago of Hallway progress and im provement, as it establishes, on the highest ju dicial authority know n under tho Constitution, questions not unlikely to occur hereafter. The following is the abstract furnished to us : The case of tfie West River Drldgo Co. rs. Dix and others, recently decided by the Supreme. Court of the United States at Washington, involves some very important principles. The questions discussed in the argument derive a peculiar interest, nt this time, from the circumstance that so many railroads are now in process of construction in various part' of the country ; and it is highly important to ascertain what powers may be lawfully conferred nponsuch corporations, and to what extent the powers thus conferred may be ex ercised. The controversy in this case arose in this way ; In 17 J.'i, n corporation was created by the Legislature ol Vermont, by the name of the West River Ilridge Co., upon which was conlerrcd the exclusive privilege id maintaining a toll-bridge across West river, within four miles ol ils mouth, with the right ol exacting ccr toin specified lolls from passengers. The corporation ! was by its charter to endure for one hundred years The company proceeded', shortly afler the grant, to erect lli.-ir bridge, and hue continued to enjoy their franchise down to the icriod of instituting the proceed' ings in question, In 1114, a petition was filed in the County Court lor the County ol Windham, pinjing, among other things, for a lice road across the bridge, and the abolition of the lolls. Such proceedings were had upon this resulted i making the The court prec eded under a Statute of 1 tree. 1 lie court proceed .int er .ut. ... erinont, passed, I believe, in 1S3J which the taking the property ofa turnpike or oilier similar rt..trir,.,;..,, nrni'i. 1 11 ri ,ir . 1 h.i I in sue 1 ease and provides further, that in such caso ' 1 . ... .

At the same time, the whole property of the corporation, including ' the Iranchise, was appraised, and the appraised value decreed to be paid. . , , . 1 ne case was carried io uie on inane mun m Vermont, who affirmed the decree ofthe County Court ; upon which a Writ of Hrror was brought to the huprcme Court ofthe ttuiied States- I The case was argued, two years ago, by Mr. Web- I ster and Judge Collanicr for the philiil'lFiin error, and Judge I'behia for the defendants in error. and again this winter by the same counsel.

Wo doubt if any country or any ago over wit nessed a more universal and wide-spread exhi bition of popular attachment and enthusiasm than that which lias greeted the appearance of HUNRY CLAY, nt the North. His progress from Washington to New York was one contin- tied Triumph not a Triumph voted by an obse quious Legislature lor deeds of Arms, ami at tended by a train of vanquished kings and gen erals, but one ilr.twn from the willing hearts of its countrymen bv their admiration and grath tilde towards a noble .Statesman, in whoso illtis trious career, the Arts of l'oacc, and the arts that secure l'caco and make it as honorable as it is always desirable, every where predominate. Hr.Nitv Clay's sen ices in the cause of his Conn try and humanity, merit the proud distinction they are daily receiving. He is securely and Immovably throned In llie hearts of tho people. The bestowment of no office could ndd a cubit to his stature, while the whole Country now groans under tho bitter and perilous conscquen ces that have resulted from an unfair and unwise rejection of his counsels and his guidance.

Tho Concert of this asociation?of Amateurs, nt the Unitarian Church, on Friday evening, was numerously attended, though the audience was not so largo as wo hoped to see, nor as the very creditable and successful efforts of the gentlemen and ladies of tho society in the culti vation of musical taste and ttlent, merited. It is not nKYii,.tlio case, by any manner of mean, that it can bo said of Musical Performances of even n good deal higher order of pretcn t,an those given on Tuesday cvenin-r. thai nsinns given on lucsd.ty evening, that they are" a ronewvof sweet sounds." Wo believe it Is universally conceded, however, that the Handel and Haydn society loft no margin for tho exercise of charity in this respect, by their auditors. Their pieces wore admirably chosen, and admirably executed, and we but echo tho common opinion when we say they are deserv ing great praise, and cordial encouragement, for placing within the reach of our community a means of enjoyment so elevating and refined. We should hardly feel at liberty, if we wore. j at all competent, to criticize such a perform-j lance, for the purpose cither ofcetisuro or praise. I he crotchet in our head, wo fear, are not in exact conformity with the rules of musical sci ence, nor are our precisely adjusted to the undulations of musical sounds. Hut we can not refrain from giving expression to the gener al admiration with which Mr. Nichols' line per formance of " Think gently of the erring '' wa received. The sentiment of these beautiful and touching verses is finely adapted to the music in which it floats, and Mr. Nichols gave bulh with much taste and feeling. Wo are indebted to his kindness for a copy of this admirable poem, with which wo can apprnprhttihj conclude our notice of this interesting Concert.
