Wa should like to know if the 'flocks' of our farmers have been ruined by the election of Gen.

Harrison, who is only the stalking-horse of the man who a. bandoned that system of policy notwithstanding hia oft-repeated declaratibna that the salvation of the country dopended upon it 1 MIyXllBUREN'S LETTER. We insert below the letter of Mr Van Bu. ren to the National Antimasonio Committee. For our own part we think, it much more honorable and candid than the letter of Gen Harrison.

Mr Van Buren avows, it will be seen, his determination to act independently of the question of masonry and antimasonry to appoint both masons and antimasons to office, with reference only to their qualifica tions in other respects, He does not attempt to conceal his real sentiments and appear to aay something which he does not mean to say in fact. But wo will let the letter speak for Washington, May 19ih, 1836. Gentlemen I have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter communicating to me a resolution adopted by the National Anti. masonic, convention" recently assembled at Philadelphia, instructing you. to ask me, whether, if elected President of the United States, I would appoint adhering masons to office, and have the honor to state in reply, that I should not in the event alluded to, feel it to be my duty to enquire whether applicants for office were either adhering masons or op.

ponents ot the masonic institution. Whilst the fact of any such applicat being; an adher ing mason would certainly not be regarded by me as constituting a ground of preference, I could not at the same time look upon either circumstance as creating a disqualification for office if the applicant should prove to be in all other respects, well entitled thereto. I am, gentlemen, Very respectfully; i Your obedient serv't, -i--V M. VAN BUREN. i It ought to be stated that Mr Van Buren was asked no question in regard to his views of masonry, but only whether he would ap.

point adhering masons to office, His answer on this point is far more satisfactory than Gen Harrison's for the latter not only refuses tcr act upon tfee-antimaaonic pilnCiplM, TJUl say expressly that if that" principle were brought into action" by a President of the United States, it "could not fail to be THE PARENT OF MISCHIEFS INFINITELY GREATER THAN THOSE WHICH IT IS THE DESIGN TO CURE." Mr Van Buren utters no such obnoxious sentiment, but says simply in the most respectful terms that he shall act independently of the princi. Constitution," tbe new anti-maBonic paper published at Woodstock, which is endorsed as the People's Press, candidly admits that Gen. Harrison is not an antiniasoa in the true, sense of the word, and as it has always been understood by. the party, but places his support entirely on. whig ground.

This is the ground on which we are willing to place the contest, and we ask the antimasons of Vermont to choose between whiggery and democracy. Let them remember that tbe democratic party in this State is pledged to oppose nliecret societies and open monopolies, while the whig party is as bitterly opposed to antimasonry as ever. What now becomes of the assertion of the State Journal and the People's Press that uen. Harrison is an antimason 7 Ate all their fine spun arguments on this point to go for nothing? What, we ask further, becomes of the assertion that Mr Barber has "deserted" the party Is it "desertion" to refuse to support a candidate, who according to the "Constitution," endorsed by the People's Press, is not au antimason? How grossly have. those antimasons been deceived who put faith in the State Jour nal and People's Press! They have been drawn, to an extent which they did not anticipate, into the support of wbigism, under the false pretence that Harrison was an an' timnson VVe believe they are beginning to see the delusion, and that they will yet be found on the aide of democratic antima sonry and in opposition to whig amalgamation.

ttj- nena jvnapp works himself up into quite a tempest of indignation, at the suggestion of the North Star that Messrs Butler and Aldis declined serving on the Harrison electoral ticket out of re gard for democracy and from a want of due attachment to the hero of North Bend i ne major tmnKS sucn an intimation is tantamount to a direct accusation of 'du plicity and insincerity." Why? Because forsooth, those gentlemen said nothing in their letters to the committee by which their sentiments could be known, but only assigned ill health as a reason for declining That, says the Major, is proof conclusive that these gentlemen are true Harrison men! Now by this same rule we can prove that Judge A. is a V.Buren be assigned the same reason tor refusing to serve on the democratic electoral ticket, and said not a word by which his political sentiments could known. We are assured while he does not'wish to take an active part in the present contest, he prefers Mr Van Buren to Gen. Harrison. In regard to the views Gov.

Butler we know nothing. 1 tHt lOTRIHACr 01 THCLAWS," jhuulEBUHY COLLEGE. The. finual Commonoomont took place on Wednesday the 17th inst. The Clan admit, ted to the Pogree of A.

terial for the front being uncommonly beauti. ful) and contains in addition to the private Wpartmenta of the Officere the following! ublic rooms; a Chapel, Library and Mineralogical Cabinet, apt recitation and tnree Jjeciure and an Astronomical Observatory. We understand that the Board of Trustees have determined upon tim erection of another building to be occupied by th atudentaf and forming the Southern wing in. the ratge of Academic buildings originally contemplated. The East College, hitherto containing' the public rooms has been converted into rooms for the That these increased; accommodations were called for is evident from the numbers belonging to the several Classes the last annual Catalogue contains the names of 163 undergraduates.

That the internal condition of the College might receive corresponding improvements, and the means of instruction be rendered more ample, liberal appropriations have been made tk and Pbilntnnhu sentiments harts lain buried in the newspaper for fit ytanwithovt notwithstand. ing wa have shown that Afr Barber did comment upon them at tho time of their publication, and protest against thorn aa fatal horisos! What effrontry! The Wandering? Piper entertained a re. spectable number of ladies and gontlomon by bis'performanoe on the Bagpipes at tho Town Room on Thursday evening lost. He' states that he has givon to different eharitablo ob jects in this country the avails of his piping to me amount ot more than tor which ho can show rocoints.

UTTho People's Pros Insinuated, a few weeks aince, that Mr. Barber haulod off" towards the Jackiafi party in oonsequonoe of receiving the votes or a portion of that party for Clerk of the House in 1834. For proof of the injustice of this insinuation, see the ad.

dress on our first page written by Mr. Barber immediately after that election. Mr. Slade wa "hauling off" to the Whiirs, but Mr Bar. ber stood then as he doe now on independent Antimtsosio HT The State Journal, People's Press, and other whig presses are quoting from a speech of Judge Burnett to bolster up the character of Gen.

Harrison. Judge Burnett, we bo. live, is the tame man who recently headed the mob in Cincinnati, which demolished Mr Bir. ny' pre A brave vouchor, truly, for Harrison's republicanism! Wonder if Afr Knapp will call another indignation meeting The democratio party in the first con. gressionaldistrict hat nominated for Congress, John S.

Robinson, Esq. in opposition to tho present Royal Arch.federal-whig incumbent, Hiland Hall. Mr Robinson is about 30 years of age, and has already acquired an enviable reputation as a lawyer. Hi talents are of the first order, and fit him for eminent useful, ness in the station for which he is a candi. date.

He is an open opposer of secret socio. tie, and we hope tbe antimasons of tbe first district will give hjm their united support. IC73 Mr Slade's amalgamation organ asserts Mr Barber supported Mr S. fur Congress after his consultation with the Burlington whig) to help elect Heman Allen, a vMg Congress ovar John Smith, the antimatmic candidate. That Mr.

B. supported him after that exhibition of whig political "juggling," is true but it is not true that Mr B. did so with may knowledge of that dishonorable tranacrioh. He learned the fact after Mr. 8.

was elected. Thus falls to the ground another prop of Mr Slade's whiggery. The democratio antimasons in the scv. eral towns'fchould adopt immediately the most efficient and energetic measure to ensure a triumph at the approaching contest. Re.

The steam-boat Motto, making her first trip from Louisville to Pittsburgh, ran on the shoals at the foot of Blannerhassett's Island.

In at. tempting to get off, too groat a quantity of steam accumulated, and the boiler burst, kill, ing immediately three persons, and scalding eight others so severely that they died within a few hours, and three it was feared, would survive their injury only a few days. The steam-boat Roanoke came up to the Motto some hours after the disaster, and afforded what relief could be given. From the Baltimore Chronicle of Aug. 18.

Fire at the Penitentiary. At about half past 9 o'clock last night, a fire was discover. ed in one of the work-shops of the Female Department of the Penitentiary. It origina. ted in the garret, amongst a quantity of wool, and was probably the Work of some of the female The engines were very prompt, ly on the spot, and the fire was extinguished, after destroying the southern part of the work-shop and the wash-house.

The looms in the building, we understand, were preser. ved. Had the wind been nigh, the whole es. tablishment would have been in danger. The damage does hot exceed lour or five hundred dollars.

Riot at Exeter. Mr. Storrs, an abolition. ist, attempted to deliver a lecture at Exeter, N. it.

on Wednesday evening last, in the Methodist Chapel, but was prevented by the assemblage of a mob who broke the windows of tbe church, and then drove the congreira. tion from the house by discharging water up on tnem irom an engine.

ocratic. THE DEMOCRATIC ANTIMASONS ERECT. The democratic antimasons of Addison and Rutland counties stand before the people with independent tickets for Senators and member of Congress. Their candidates are all good men and true. Their tickets, moreover, are tbe onty independent antimatonie ticket before the people in these counties, and they ought to unite all the antimasonic democracy in a firm phalanx.

The names of Hall, Gillett, and Kins-let, of this county, are familiar to the anti-masonic freemen. They are men of sterling abilities, tried integrity, and unyielding devotion to the public good. Let them be triumphantly sustained. Messrs Bliss, Ewino and Htatt, are pioneers of the in Rutland county democrats from the beginning, and free from whiggery and amalgamatiop. They are all men of talents and information men who have succeeded in life by their own exer.

tions. They -make a strong democratic tick, et, and the only independent antimasonic one in that county. The Harrison ticket, pur. porting to be antimasonic, is an amalgamation ticket, and contains the name of one man who-voted against the bill to prohibit he administration of extra-judicial oaths, i The candidate presented by the democratic antimasons for Congress, is the only dis-tinctive candidate in the field, Mr Slade being the candidate of the whig amalgamation-ists. ICTMr Slade endeavors to excuse his declaration of a willingness to vote for Afr Clay instead of the pure minded Wirt, whenever it should become necessary to put down the administration, by affirming that he would have done so on tho same ground that Mr Barber might vote for a mason, if it were necessary to keep from the Presidency George AfcDufne with his abominable slave Now this is certainly a very lame apology for even admitting that 3fr B.

would do as Mr Slade supposes, does it follow that ikfr Slade would have been justified in voting for Afr Clay in order to put down the administra-tion, because Afr Barber might think slavery a worse evil than masonry Afr Barber probably thinks slavery a worse evil than masonry, says Afr Slade, tJterefore the administration is- worse than masonry Very convienient be sure but in our humble opinion, the evils of Gen. Jackson's administration are one thing, and the evils of slavery 'another, and if it were even admitted that the latter are worse than masonry, it would still remain to be proved that Mr Slade's declaration is consistent 'with pure antimasonry. One word in relation to Mr. McDuffio's abominable slave doctrines." Is not Mr. Slade laboring in connexion with this same George McDuftje to defeat Afr.

Van Buren Is not Afr. AfcDuffie, moreover, trying to defeat Bumn for the -very reason that the latter is not an advocate of hi abomina. ble slave doctrineJ And is not the same George AfcDuffie promoting the interests of Judge White Gen Harrison.on the ground that both these individuals are known to be friends the same "abominable' slave doctrines?" Moreover, did not 'Mr Slade himself once jttit. oat it feeler for Judge White, an open advocate for those "abominable slave doctrines the annunciation of which George Thompson said produced nine cheer in Pandemonium!" i i s. DjT We understand that the late antimasonic convention at Royalton adjourned without making any nomination of a candidate for Congress.

The sound antimasons were for Gen. Flint almost to a man; but the whigs and the friends of whig amalgamation secured the attendance of a sufficient num. ber of delegates of their kidney to prevent his nomination. We hope the old fashioned antimasons of that district will take measures to place Gen. Flint before the freemen as a candidate, and rally around him to a man.

Tho' he is opposed to us on the presidential question, we wish him to succeed over the present federal incumbent.
