Mn. Editoh, I saw an article in tho last Sentinel, commenting upon the course of our representative in regard to certain Bills re- liitinc tu tlio University ol Vermont, upon which, with yottrpormission, I wish to offer a few remarks. Tho articlo to which I re fer, like most other matter which appears in the Sentinel, contained about as many false hoods as it made assertions. The true sc ctet of the Sentinel's hostility to Jin. Van Sicklex, 1 suspect, will he found in the fact that he was elected, last September, hy tho freemen of Burlington to represent that town in our State Legislature, and thai, whilo act ing in that capacity, ho succeeded in defeat- clouds.

Well, the Stato Houso was built and a crand and costly one it is. A good deal of election eering has been based upon those granite Willi, on both sides but it is of littlo consequence, which Bide is to blaino for tlio expenditure, it far as my subject is concerned.

It must therefore bo borrowed where Here va3 a fund crea. led out of revenues legitimately belonging to the Mate, for which the people had paid taxes, and which was producing no present benefit to any body. It was tho State's property. A simple act of the Legislature of tho Stato had given it a different character. No living being had ac quired any vested rights under that act, and the money was therefore just as much at the dispo. sal of tho Stato as if no such act had been pas sod. Tlio plan was accordingly adopted of lorroicing from this school fund, the money which belonged to tlio Stato before hand, and was only nicknamed School Fund, lo suit tho purposes and whims of those whoso eyes saw far into the future, and beheld boys and girls load ttg around school houses with those mystic, words printed on their hats. This sum so borrowed .by tho state of tho stato fur the state, has ever since been serious ly christened a stato debt ! Not by every body, to bo sure, but pretty generally and ever since 1S31 the state' havo paid the Treasurer a hun dred dollars a year extra, for fumbling over the notes on which the fund is loaned, and conning over by . Daboll's rules, how much more the state owes itself for interest on this lorroved money 1 and of Murcst compound interest, tho debt rolls up witli "accelerated velocity Every year the Treasurer as'Commissio'nerof the fcliool fund, charges over the accumulatiea of interest to the State.on the books of the fund, and reports the same with due solemnity to the "assembled wisdom," who as in duty bound el evate their eyebrows to behold the fearful cr, wo ato happy to add, is decidedly cool, to disfranchise freemen " for such a title and, judging from the indications around us, i would havo been in exact conformity to its strides by which the right hand breeches pocket Sec. lfi.

Hut reallv it is taxing credu lity a littlo loo severely to believe that any man, alter Having liimscll sliareil lor n con siderable) period in thu profits tho samo of fice, should now voluntaiily bestnut his own profession, urgo it as cause for thu removal of an honorable opponent, and in the next breath insult (he appointing power by ask ing his own appointment to a station, which, according to his own showing, ho is disquali fied for. It can not bo so. Can it 1 Or is Mr. Winslow green enough to suppose, that, under such circumstances, he could undergo tho ordeal of the Senate 1 Let him lay no such unction to his soul.. s to the second inquiry, wc have no hes itation in saying that tho rumor needs con firmation.' The gentleman alluded to, held tho oliico ot post master in this town, ttiuhs turbed, for inoro'than twenty years during most of which tiino ho was tho proprietor and publisher of a political paper cmbrncinj; too tho stormy period of Adams's adminis tration, which tho Sentinel opposed wilh a zual and bitterness unequalled in New-England. Tho Freo Press was then in exist ence, supporting tho administration ; yot no complaint was made about Mr.'MilU be ing u. printer no attempt mado 'to ,rcmovo, or prejudice him by tho fact.

Hut tho Sentinel asserls ihat Air. Van Sicklen declared in the House that tho Fac ulty of the college here, were opposed to the passago oflhc Bill. Now litis, like most oth er asscrtiuns of thu Sentinel, is an unquali fied faUehond. TUo facts of thu case are as follows, ns 1 have obtained tliuin from a gen tleman who was present when thoy occur red. Mr. Van Sicklen was asked' hy a prominent Locofoco member whether he did not know that the faculty of tho college, hero were in favor of tho passage of the liill. lie replied that ho did ;iof know it, and ad ded that ho did not believe it. Uo also said, and in tuy opinion, very justly, that whether the Faculty wqro, or were not, in favor of llio measure, it would not changes his opinion in tho least, or swervu him a hair from his course. He represented the free men of the town, and not the Faculty of the College. I shall take an early opporiunity, Mr. Ed itor, to submit somo further observations on this subject, if you will allow mo to do so, and I rather think tho Sentinel will find that in abusing Mr. Van Sicklen for his course on this occasion, ho "is kicking against the pricks." A Fit 12 EM AN. ' TUB SCHOOL FUND. I am well awaro that in approaching the sub- jeet which heads this article, I am, as it were walking over a mine of excited public feeling, which gives token of an approaching oxplosion. Hut I propose, discarding tho unworthy consid.' crations which havo drawn it into party disputa tions, to speak of it as it really is, a subject in which wearo all alike interested whatever may be our political predilections. First then as to its origin. It appears that some fifteen or twen ty years) ago, iho Legislature r.amo to tho con clusion that it would be a very uico thing to mako somo provision by which some time oroth or, nobody could guets when, a common school could bo kept up two months in the year, iu ev ery district iu the State freo of c.vpenso to the districts. Accordingly, being full of this new and ingenious idea,, they proceeded to tho cere mony of laying tho corner stone of this moneta ry edifice, and set in motion tho clcinonls which wcro to work out its ultimate completion. In the first place, in order to avoid delay in paying off tlio debts of tho old Stato Hank, a direct tax bad been levied upon the people for such sums 33 could not bo raised from tho assets of tho lhnk within tho requisite period. A largo amount of thoso assets still remained uticollec ted though collectable and this was sclertod as tlio substratum the foundation of tho newly umntrJ school fund. In order to arcelorsN tho accumu'ation of the ' nl, and pciJtajn with a them education without effort or sacrifice? No man believes tins. Every man must tee that they will turn round and address our ghofts somewhat in this wise, "Gentlemen "ancestors ;' we don't wish to bo disrespectful "to your memories, but really, we cant help "taymg that you must have been o.vcessirely 'green to think we were going to have you, "old fashioned codgers as you were, tell tu in "this "age of progress" how to tax ourselves to "educate ourselves. Wo are much obliged to "you, have no doubt you mc-anf well, hut must " beg to bo excused, as we prefer to tax our selves in our separate towns and districts, "and expend as much or as little as wo " please, and expend it too, vvhero it is raised, " without piling the whole school tax together "and then making a new division. Besides we " believe vvo estimate our privileges by what " thoy cost, and should not therefore care much " for a school kept up without our aid. And ft " naliy wo think if you had laid out more money " and pain's on your own and your children! " education, it would havo done us more good, "and saved us the necessity of telling you what " we think of your school fund humbug." Would no', this bo in substance what our de scendants would think of usl Undoubtedly. And tlio consequences would be, that they would just get together at Montpelier, and by a simple wave of their magic wand pat this mighty debt order the Treasurer to cancel the state' debt, and declare the school fund abolished. If this is so, why not abolish this foolish cheat now 1 Will it be paid next year, the year after, or ever 1 No ono believes it. Then why en tail a humbug upon future generations, and lead credulous people to think that " somehow or oth. er, " it is going to bo a great and glorious thing lavo a school fund, to educate our children, n no one who is likely to live on the earth so ten years yet, tan seo tho fruits of the t ol fund until he is too old to bo obliged to ti 1 lilitary duty. Not a cent is now received 1 . schools from this fund, all the Interest going t pagination to swell the capital stock on tA I .s ! Not interest collected and loaned gai, b . interest charged to the stato on the money tai.on lo build the state house, which consamtf nearly the whole fund. I trust I shall not be deemed "public eie my" for thus recommending the abolitio of the worse thau useless form kept up t the Treas. ury, but that every one who lakes the trouble (b read what 1 halo written, will think of the subject in tho light in which I hare presented it;' and if any body can show why this school fund should not bo abolished, and the apparition of a state debt uviiVA naer existed, bo Ju'd, I shall confess tny astonishmrinV and my admira tion of his powers. I hapo to live to see common sense restored to its proper ascendancy in the finmtial man. sgemciil of the slate. 8- MurPnatoii, cv.O', lfil'J. tr I
