INDIAN CORN. Wohavo occounts reaching us in every direction, of tlio abundant and cxcullent crops df Indian corn raised tho last year in every part of tlio State. Some of our friends wo think must feel a little conscience-smitten when they remember what they said last year in disparagement of tho corn crop, with what disdain Ihoy spoke of it, and how many of them pretended that it was time to give it up. Filty, sixty, eighty bushols aro hot uncommon in various parts of the state; and some we believe have reached to a hun dred.

VERMONT P1KENIX. mmmt,f il I I lllllllllllll I II IT I I T " " Friday Moritlitsr, February 15, 1830. ILLINOIS. The editor of the Democrat says wc tacitly admitted last week, that wc had not a particle of evidence to sustain our chnrge against him -of misrepresentation in regard to the political character of the Illinois Lcgisla- " ture. Wc admit no such inference from our article. We stated we had no file of the De mocrat for reference, nor did we deem the subject worthy of devoting much time and ,space to It, as our readers could be supposed to take but little interest in such a controversy. "Wo therefore suggested to the editor, if he wished tho matter pursued, to republish his articles on the subject, side by side with the votes of the Legislature, and this would settle the whole matter. Instead of this, he merely quotes one of his former articles, in connexion with an account of ccrtaih votes, on the au thority of the Globe (doubtful as"such author ity is,) and affected a great ...

Air Slade took an nppcul from tho decis ion of the Chair, which was decided without debate; and the resolutions, according to the decision, which wus sutained, wcro laid on the table. Mr Stride presented a great number of petitions Tor tho abolition ot slavery, and a gainst the annexation of TUxas and fdr tho recognition of tho independence of IIayti. He persisted-in reading them over sever ely, which ol course consumed a great dea of lime of the House. When he had finished, lie asked leavo (o oiler n resolution. Objection was made, on the ground that this was petition day ; and it was therefore irregular to offer resolutions. Slade asked tliut the resolution might be read for information.

The slaves ate here; no practical scheme or their removal or separation from us has been yet devised or proposed; and the true inquiry is, what is best to be done with them. In human af fairs wo are often constrained, by the force of circumstances and the actual state of things, to do what we would not do if that Mate of things did not exist. The slaves ore here, and hero must remain, in some condi tion ; and, I repeat, how aro they to be best governed? What is' best to bo done for their happiness and our own 1 In tho slave States, the alternative is, that the white man must govern the black, or tho black govern the white.
