Wo trust tho General survives tho outpourings of the wrath of tho locofoco British press upon him. By his devotion to American interests lie has incurred the displeasure of such press es, and ho douhtless expects that their abuso will bo heaped upon him in unmeasured quantities, and is prepared to receive it.

STATE SCHOOL. FUND. NO. 7. This subject commends itself to the can did consideration of every member of the community. If the fund be continued, it will absorb millions of the public money ; and to justify this expenditure a ralid and sufficient reason should be apparent. The people should know foe what cause they arc taxed, that they may decide on the propriety or necessity of the tax. Ostensibly this fund is to be raised to educate future gen erations. It will in truth be, if continued, a ptavlhinz in the hands of designing poli ticians; and it mar be used as a great cor runtion fund to buy up all, that is vendible Jn political shambles, and if this use is not made or it, it win be owing more to xne in tegrity of our cilzcns, than to any guards, which it is in the power of the law to throw around it.

FromVie J'cu England 1'armir. SEEDING DOWN TO GRASS. The old practice of seeding down to grass ' with a grain crop sowed in the Spring, lias not done as well lately as it did years ago. Tho summer, or the winter, or something else, so often hills the grass from seed thus sown, that the practice is fa.Ming into disuse. It is better and safer to omit sowing the grass seed until August or September. Tho extra plowing of the land, by which tho grain stubble is buried, is not expensive. The greater worth of the stubble when turn ed under, pays for the labor. The present is a favorable time for such seeding. Tho' it will do to! sow sras3 seed anv time before October, and even later than that. We pub lished, last winter, an article from "n Nor folk Farmer," of much experience in fall needing, and especially on inverted sward, who has had better crops as a whole from his laic sowings, as late as October, than from his early. All moist lauds that need renovating, may be plowed, top dressed, ...

In the 4th District it is doubtful whether thcro is any choice. -Nor is it yet certain thatv any Governor is elected by tho people ; but the complexion of those elected to the Legislature is such, as to leave no doubt that Mr Mattocks will bo our next Chief Magistrate. In this County tho Whig ticket for, Senators has undoubtedly succeeded ; and there are 12 Whigs elected to the House, and 8 Locos; three towns making no choice.

THE LIBERTY VAItTV. The Anti-Slavery Standard, edited by David Leo Child, in a long article on the history and progress of the Anti-slavery en terprise, gives the following description of the origin of the Liberty Party. The rea soning by which ho shows the inconsisten cy of liberty party men stopping short of Garrisotiism, seems clear and forcible. We commend it to the notice of our readers. The New Organization had gone off on the avowed ground that they could not, scripturally and conscicnciously, remain in nn association where women were deemed to bo "persons," and to hnvo a voice. This will soon seem as wonderful as the witch delusion. With this, and with no other distinctive and avowed principle, did New Organization start. They soon saw that! thev could mako notlnnir of it; and that ns a party, they must expire under general odium, "for their false clamor," unless "they got up a now issue." This they did, by voting that they were "lic liberty party," n'nd nominating themselve...
