Ui:v. Iiii-iiui1 Hopkins. Sih: If I on 'dcrsinnd your fifth oljection to the Tern peinncc Snciciy. it amounts pimply to this, "the Temperance Society is not proparnto ry to n revival." I think there never Ikih linen mi ii'dividiial that has nflinned that tiiore could be no revival wii hunt n Tem perance Society. Bui I think none can prove thai mi individual nan become con verted in God without (1 ri-t becoming tem perate. If yon say the reverse. I hen n man tuny experience n Spiritual revival nnd continue in the -in of drunkenness-. Tin h uupcs-ilile. Then as it is indisponsible to ii reyivnl that men become temperate, n llio Ti iiinernnco Society promotes trtn. perance, it does mnrt etnphatieally prepare n man for a revival and without this pre paration he could not experience it. lint h'l ii- examine your proof a llllle. You iminedtfitely affirm that it i- ' absurd to speak of n forerunner of Christ coming ,nto notice f-rarcely nine year? apo. ' Now Fir. nobody but ynuelf ever imagined it io lie a forerunner of Chrii-t but is there no difference bei ween being n forerunner of Christ and a preparation fur n Spiritual revival? If there is none, then your ob jection, or nrool of your objection is valid. Bui 1 premnie that any of the lads nt .your school would immediately discover n distinct nnd palpable difference. Why then i-heuld you ini roduco it ns a forerunner of Cirist? Here is hut another specimen of your ability, or weakness of your cause. You object to the Fcnliment that temper ance prepares the way for faith. It must be that faith which brings justification comes before or after repentance. If it mine before, then an individual may exer cio faith and bo justified, while in a course of high rebellion against God. And if be can be justified while in sin, i. c. rendered innocent, he may be kept innocent, and if be may bo kept innocent while in sin, sal vaiiou is noirom sin, but in sin. This is tuitinomianisin, or galvalion with ?io ealvn lion. Then if faith bring salvation from CliriPt, it must bo preceded by repentance. Tetnperanco necessarily supposes repen tance frnm drunkenness, where one Iibf been guilty of it, nnd therefore in 6uch cases temperance- is invariably a prepara tion for faith. IT this doctrine be correct, you affirm, "llio apostles could not have iittderstond their work," Now sir, I must think that you have entirely misunderstood the apostles. They did most certainly prcacli the doctrine of the Temperance Society. If icpeutanco of this vico be what wo have eccn, it must be then accor ding to St. Paul, whom you quote,! bat they preached first "repentance toward," which u nothing less or moro than becoming temperate, and then faith toward our Lnrd Jest.s Christ. Through ibis faith they were saved. I grant that n faith of ere. donco is antecedent to, or present with repentance, but justifying faith invariably follows, nnd this is the ground oftbuTcni. perance Society. You nflirtn that if the doctrine you oppose were correct the npos. lies should have first brought their hearer" to join a Temperance Society : this is your 8euliincnt. Hut if they brought them to temperance thi.-' is all that was needful, whether by moans of a, society or without one. 15ut do you say that if without, then there is im need of the Society I answer u mint may, nnd must in order lo become u christian, become temperate without a Temperance Society, but it by no means follows that n man who is not a christain cannot bo benefitted by joining a society and living according to its rules. It mul therefore be evident that your fifth objec tion is nothing but imaginary. St. A. , KI37. VlNDF.X. Fiom llio (itMin.iiiimvn I'clcrapli. IMI'OHTANCM OF DESTROYING WHUDS. 'The abundance in which weeds are seen in some fields shows eoiicliisively that but little of the mir-chiof caused by them is un derstood Weodsaru injurious to the land arid lo the crop, in nlovi.-t evcrv possible way that t hey can lie. In thu first place, they cxbati-t the soil to support their own useless growth, and extract that nourish ment from it which oiiL'htloro exclusively to --import the crop. Secondly, they crowd upon other plants above ground, prevent them from branching out at their roots, and deprive them of a free circulation of :w, necessary for their health anil vigor, so that they r-hont up only single, weak, sickly stalks, incapable of producing n valuable crop. I inrii'y. nicy in row ott Ironi tlie soil, through their leave.-, into the air, an almost incredible quantity of mnUlurc, and speedily reduce the ground to so dry a siate. a-: io he fit fur weeds only to grow in. S'i eiioriniiii-i is the quantity thrown off by some plants, that it actually exceeds more titan tu'iro their own weight in a 'in glo day.

I'lanN are in luct hut channels ihroiioh which moisture i- conveyed up from the soil to be di.-sipated in the air; henre the absurdity of the opinion, that weeds will prevent the ground becnniin!: dry, by sha ding it. Let any one in drv weather exam me n pteeo of perfee'ly bare cod, a few inches below the Mtrface, and cnmpire its degree of moisi tire with that of soil at an rqnal dopMLiiear the roots ofa thick growth nf weeds, ami he will find the difference a.-tonhm.

Of what uo i- it lo buy laud, and plough it. and prepare it, nnd put in the crops, if alter all these crops nre Miffer ed to he Ktlcu up by such intruder.? If a drove of cult le hould break into a field, no one would think of re. ting n moment nil I hey were driven out: and yet many allow myriuil- of noxious weeds to overspread their lauds, olien doing three fold more mischief, w'nh t-ca cely an effort to check their progress.

Take a stone pot or jar that will hold thirty or forty pounds, clenn it thoroughly, nnd wash it in strong cold brine. Take of new sweet butter, well made, nnd free from butler milk, (if enough to fill the pot at onco so much the better) work it well nnd put a lavcr of it ti few niches in thickness in the jar, beat it down solid with a wooden beat er, turning nfflho milk that will escape oe. casionally. then repeal the process until the pot is filled within an inch and a halt o! the top, with butter thoroughly pounded down.

It is related in some English work, that n. gonllcinan walking ptio day in the woods belonging to the Duko of lleatifnrt, near Troy House, in tha county of Monmouth, his attention was diverted by n Fquinel, which sat ver.y com posedly on the ground. He Hopped to ob servo his motions. In n few inoinenls llio pquirrcl darted to llio lop of a. tree, beneath which ho had been silting. In an instant, he was down, with an acorn in his mouth, and aflct digging a small hole, bo stooped down and dt'po.iitcd the acuru ; then covering it, ho darted up thu tree again. In a moment ho was down again with another, which he buried in thu satno manner. This ho con. tinned to do nslongastho observer thought proper to watch him. This industry of the little animal is dircclcc to llio purposo of securing him against want in the winter; and it is probable that Ins memory is not sufficient, ly retentive to enable him to remember the spot in which ho deposited overy acorn. This indiistroun little lellow, no doubt loses a Tew every year; these few spring up, and aro des tined to supply the piare of llio parent tree.

It will bo recollected that about two years ago, an individual was arrested In tins city upon a charge of Mealing n horse, and was tried and found guilty of the offence, mid sen tenced to two venrs imprisonment in the Slain Prison, under the noino of Charles Stewart. It was soon afterwards discover cd by the pri-oners that Charley belonged to the to i ti i tunc gender, ami information having been given to tho keepers, of llic fact, she was divested of her roundabout and trousers, mid sent over to the female department of Hellevue prison. Yesterday, the term of imprisonment having expired, the was told that she was at liberty to de part, offering her at the same time n decent dress of female attire lo begin the world anew with. This proposition, howevcr.she indignantly rejected, demanding, as her right, the fame clothing that was token away from her. Finding she could not oh tain I hem, she came down in I he forenoon, in her prison dress, nnd solicited aid of the rlnis)onse, nnd was told lo wait till one of tho eoinmisi-ionors arrived. In the moan lime she purnded herself uiiou the irass plots of tho Park, and excited so much in terest, after the speetator.-- found out who she was. as to attract a considerable mob. en -he was persuaded to submit to n ti'iuiiornry commitment until a hearing of her cae eonlu be had. It appears that tins singular young woman, who is mil over 19 or i.'0 years ol age, had for six venrs follow. ed the sea in the capacity of a common ailor, doing all sorts of hard dot v, and sub ject lo nil the privations and toils of a sea lilo. wiihoul her sex ever having been dis covered. The ren.-nn for its-niinng the charue.ler of a ,-ailor she would never dis close. She in a Scotch girl, and is repre sented by tho officers as thu most, violent being they ever had under Iheir charge. Sometimes she has been known to maintain a good battle with two of her keepers at once, while they were endeavoring lo pun. Ii her lor -.tiilibnruness. She never work ed a day in pri-on, although she has been beaten, starved, and chained, to clleet the object; she has been chained to the floor I!! months ol her imprisonment, bcarcejy any one dared to apnroaeh her cell to give her food, ns she would knock them down with a kid as soon ns i hoy entered. Her moral character, with i he exceptions above ulludcd to, is good. Her object is to get a suit of sailor's clothes, and go to sea again; and as it is possible t lint she will commit another ciimeto obtain them, perhaps the wi-est course would he to let her have her own wav. for the sake of getting rid of her. jY.

From llio l'coplca I'icss, Tho following dialoiiguo is said lo have occurred bet ween Gen. Flint on Ins late journey to Miildlebury to allond a County Convention, and a Democrat of Hancock. The Democrat is hoeing his corn, and the General is jogging by htm to attend llio Convention. Ihiucock Democrat. Good morning Gen nl. Which wny, bo early, llaul up a mo mailt, nnd see an old friend. Gen. 2'7(;ii Good morning. Glad to see you. but enn't stop but a moment, for I must bo at .Middlcbury to attend the Con vention to-day II. D. Convention ? What Convention? Gen. F.

And he has scut out baud bills too, calling the meeting, with more than n hundred names on 'hem all democrats, mid all dnturmined lo go full split ngniust monopolies, bank barons and whig Inrdhngs. II. D. Hut what aro you going to tins meeting lor? Is it another State Con vention ? Gen. P. O no. It is a Convention to uiuninnto County Senators for tho County' of Addison, Iht then, there is ti great iter. I of nianagin to hn done, lo bring Ibis county over, am Harbor wants help. You aro of course with us I snppuso, or you was an origiualtintiinason, and therefore I talk freelv. H. D. With you? Why. I dont ex actly know oboit that, until 1 know whore you nre going. ,1 was an original nnttma son it is true, Mid am an nniimnsoii yet ; but I ilnnt let ny mitimasonry lead mo olT any now way without considering pretty well wlnro it will load mo to. lieu.

Von nny depend on it, your old roller will nc-vir lead you off from tlic true democratic p. a form. II. D. Whyos to confidence in men I am n little slo- especially of lato ; fori find in fact. tint, men will say almost any thing, and tunalmost nny way to got office in these tunes. It has been growing worse in that way, ever sincn Gen. .larkson came into powci, for ho went to rcwar ding Ins partizans with offices ns tempta tions lo men to bevme his partizans; and it has. somehow, got folks into a strange wny, and made tlcni very careless nbolit the means they iiie to get office. Gen. F- Why, jou don't suspect mc, do you? II. D. Ai -as to that -I dnnt kuow--l dnnt know, General. 1 find men want looking to p'ctty sharp, now n.days. And to tell you tiie truth, General for 1 am a blunt sort of a man if yon would turn about and go bad; to Randolph, I should have quite ns much confidence in yon ; for I really do not sec why you should come over thu mountain into our county to help Harbor manage, unless there is some grand scheme afoot- fer he is as full of schemes as ho can hold Ho once look bold ground against tho usurpations of the administration, and corruptions of Van Ilnrenisni and said that it was good aulimasonry to do it ; hut, nil at once he whnpt right over, mid went all hollow for Van Huron President and .bhnson vice President. You either could not, or would not. turn so short n comer, hut kept on with the body of tin; nnlimnoti5, ngniust the corruptions of Van Hureiisni, and the u.iirpatiotis of Jackson, and s.i.'iportcil Har rison and Granger, nnd run for Congress a a stoui opponent of Van Huron.

Now General, to be short with you If you hnveanj thing lo do in the lino of nn tiuasonry or putting an extinguisher on Van Huronisti in Vermont, I'm at your service up tr the huh. I'd lay down my boo this minitn, and go right over to Mid dlebury, if I thought it would help any in such a causo. Gen. F. Why, my old friend, you soem to he growiig earue-t. II. 1). Earnest. Who wntild'nt be earn est, w hen there is so much wiggling and twisting to get us till over to Van Huron ism, and make us support thu principles ol Jackson's a Jminist ration. Gen. F. Hut my good old nntimasonic friend, unit you against monopolies t hnl aro getting tho influence and power into the hands of a few "whig lonllings." to rule, rough shod, over us t be people ? II. D. Yes. There is a grand monopoly which I have been opposed io, lorn long time, ever since Juck-ou b"gan to monop olize power, and stretch the constitution, nnd give his opponent? thn exclusive priv ilege of being turned nut of office, nnd on Ins parlizms the exclusive right of being appointed to fill their places. This is a monopoly big enough lo eat up all the lull" Vermont monopolies that you are making so much fuss about. Only think, how much power and influence tins puts right into tho hands of thdM're-idont and ins ad. visers. lint then I need nut tell you any thing about this, for I remember you de nounced this grand iiinunpiilv Inst year, when you was running for Congress, ns fitiif as any body I knew of. Why .ion'i you give it n lick now General especially since vou have grown extra zealous about monopolies. I am afraid there is a little disposition to "Mrnin" and "swallow" You know what I moan. Gen. F. Ah, I sen yon nro very jenlnus of me. Do you que-tton my democracy? Do vou doubt that 1 am opposed to mono polios' Dont I talk about them all the time, and give lectures? And does not Mr. Harbor cut right and left a' them his paper, mid talk about bank barons mid such like? Why, dont vou see the monopolies nil about vou, ready to drown overy thing before them? 11. D. Where ' Hero is n turnpike monopoly that runs by my door; but I never lienrd of its hurling any bodv except the proprietors. There aro sonic loll bridges mid ferries too, that aro mono polios; but 1 have nhvavs found them quite convenient, and was glad to pay tho loll. And t hero are tho manufacturing enrpn rations, thnt nre a sort o' monopoly, which have done a great deal of good, for they have set our manufactures ahead, and helped make ns independent of Europe, nnd Hindu business lively nniong us. And when a pnorisb kind of a man has n little money to spare and wants to put it in a wav nf earning something cleaver ho can buy stock in ones of these corporations, so that, whilo thu spindles and looms are going, his two talents may hu gaining other two. Tho special legislation ns you call it, that works in this way seems to mo to bo pretty good legislation, Thuru is too a lawyer and doctor monopoly that 1 have heard eomc complain of; but I don't see any good objection to it fur I don't caro how much doctors aro obliged to know before I liny are pcrmited to stuff folks with medicine, nor how much Ihey make lawyurs study before they let them plcnd and practice whore so much properly is nt Haku as in these law matters, and il is so iinportnnt that wo should have law yers that know something. And thou too Gcn. F. Hut you have forgot tho ras cally banks that have tho exclusive privi lege of making money, and Hint have made mischief nbout tho pressure. Awhile ago. they put out a great deal of money, mid made it plenty, mid propsrly rose up, nnd men thought ihey were going to get won derful rich, and went to speculating; and now tho bank's have stopped and made money scarce, and every bodv is distressed. How could you help thinking of these rascally banks. II. D. Why general I did think of llicm, nnd was just going to speak about them when you interrupted me. The banks, then, as I uiih goiiiff to say, nro another monopoly. I havo been thinking over this matter, eon. sidcrahly, of late, sincn 1 havo heard so much said about it. 1 don't sco but wo must havo some paper money in tho country, for our business and population havcgiown very fast, and if we can get a going again, will continue to grow. And they havo grown and will grow faster than the quantity of specio can grow bceaucu there is only so much specio in the world, and wo can't have moic ihau our share of it ; and il don't coma ou t of the mines much faster than it is wanted lo ho worli'd up into various things for uso and ornament ; nnd therefore the quantity in llic world that can bo uiadu into uuriency can't be increased as fast as tho business of tho world needs it. And it is heavy Muffin carry about to do business with especially great business. 1 was obliged, awhile ago. lo raiso $200, to carry over to Middlebary lo redeem my farm. Well, I scratched round and got the money and started fur Middlc bury: but pretty soon il began logrow heavy, first, 1 put it all into one bag and put it into one of my coat pockets; but pretty soon I found it sagged down and knocked against my leg, and plagued uic prodigiously So 1 slopped and divided it, and put f 100 into each coat pocket; and then it worked worse than ever, for the bags knocked against both legs, and against one another. Hut 1 finally got it over to Middlcbury and was glad lo got rid of il, L tell you. Now I thought, when I wasgningover the mountain, with my 200 thumping my legs, what wo should do if all our payments small and groat, were lo bo paid in specie. What an everlasting right of money is paid and re ceived in this country I have heard it was lour or uvu thousand inillionsj in llie course of n year, and some, too, in largo sums which havo to bo sent a good ways. What a sight of expense and ri-k there would be in gcttin the money lo and fro, and how dull business would be. I loll you general, it is a prodi gious convenience to have good bank bills to do business with; and I don'l see, ou the whole, but wo mut have banks. Hut now the question comes bow shall wo havo l linn? I have thought, some times, that it would he best to havo n great United States 15 ink with branches all over the country, and have it n government hank, mid havo no state batiks. Hut tiieti I havo I bought again, that this would he getting the money power too much into one place, nnd that I here would be n great deal of (lunger thni tho President, would get the control of it. as he would have llie appointment of the otlicers; and you know ho is not slow to catch at every chance to increase his influence nnd power. What a mighty engine he could make of a govern. menl bunk. fco 1 havo given up tin tinn. There isannther plan that I have thought of. A United States Hank made preitv much ns that was that Goti. Jackson put down, with brunches in everv slate, and a capital big enough to supply tho whole country with n circulating medium ; and have no state banks at nil. Hut then upon second thought Ibis is too big n concern. It puts too much power into one plan and there would be some danger, too, that the President would contrive to get the control of it, ns Gen. Jnek.-on tried lo get thu control of Nick Huldlo's hank. Wo might not always have as stiff a fellow at ilie head ot a United States bank ns that Riddle was when Jackson tried to bend him. And il seems to mo, too, that it would be well enough to bave a kind of a balance in this business between t he gencr al and slnto governments. It wont do to put loo much 'power in one place. Well, then, I have thought that it might not be best to have any United States bank ; but to havo nothing but state hanks. Hut I had'ut thought of this but n little white before Geu. Jackson's experiment coino right up ami knocked my plan in tho bead just as it has done the whole country. So I had to give that up. Hut then: is another plan. And it is the only one 1 can think of that can be made to work well for tho country. Let there bn u good stout, bank chartered by the United States. I wotild'nl earn if it had n capital of fifty millions; and let it havo a brunch in each state. The U. S Govern incut should have something to do with its management, nnd havo part of the capital, if you please, so as kind o' to havo one baud on it, to steady matters a little. Hut lookout fur tho President. Don't let him have nny thing to do with it. Well, lei tins hank be got well a going, nnd il would kind o' regulato llio State Hanks, and keep them from issuing loo ninny bills; nud (hen the Statu Hanks would hold a Mirl o' check, too, upon the U. S. Hani;. Thorn s nothing like chucks mid balances. Gen, F. Why. you nre for the very old monster that Geu. Jackson destroyed, nud the little monsters nil oyer the coun try. There's nothing but inouupuly mid monster nbont it. II. D. Geuernl, I am not seared at names. Monopoly and monster sound large; but I'm lor looking nt things, and seeing how they can actually bo matin to work for the benefit of tho country. You aro filling tho statu with uoiso about mini filers and monopolies, and gelling folks' heads turned, nbout a specie currency ; b you don't scctn to have any settled idea nbiuit what your plnn, if yon have any, is going to lead lo. It seems to me to bn liko boating the air. You may find it a very convenient way of raising political steam and amusing folks with lectures ou equal rights; and Harbcr may call us all who don't ngreo with Ins now light notions, "bank barons and whig lordllngs" but we want something more substantiol nnd practical than all this, You may give my plan as many long hard names as yon please that won't oltor my opinion about it. If yon will underlako to tell mo how your plnn of destroying nil banks is going In icnrlc, and what end it is going to bring us lo. thai will bo to the purpose, and I would gladly hear you. My plan in winch yon can see nothing but monsters, has been tested by expericnte the best test in tho world. Vou know wo Inrmcrs understand way of coming at things. I have tried my farm hero n good many years; and having found by experience that such mid such methods of cultivation and suc cession of crops nre best. I take that guide and go on. I say to myself, that is safe. And when n bold experimenter comes! nlong, and advises me to overturn my whole system, by which I have raised good crops, and kept my land in good condition, I tell htm to keep his experiments to him self, and leave tno to my old guide. Not hut that 1 endeavor lo make improvements gradually, as 1 find defects in my system for nothing is perfect but your bold and radical experiments I rrject. m regard to tho question ofa currency. Until Gen. Jackson iindertnokdiis experiment of pitt ing down tho Hank of tho United States. and relying entirely on the Stale Hanks to di) all tho busme-s of the government, and lo give the country a uniform and sound currency, wo had the best currency in the world. I have been told, and 1 believe it is true, that thu bills of llio United States Hank were good clear round on t'other side of llie world, in China, and just a? good in every part of the United Stntcs us gold nnd silver, o that if n man here owed a hundred dollars in N. Orleans, he could get n couple of $50 U. S. Hank bills, and put them into a letter and send them there, and they would pay Ins hundred dollars. I wish, by the by. you would just tell me, General, how ho could go to work to pay thai debt, if wo had nothing but n hard money currency. Hut, as 1 was going to say the U. S. Hank somehow contrived to keep the stale banks in order, and made i hem careful about putting out too many bills, ro that they went on safely, and wo had a good sound state bank currency. There wn no complaint that, tbej banks over issued, and thco was little or no extravagnt'.l speculation or over trading; and the rntinlry seemed to go ahead just about fast enough for you know there is such n thing going ino fasi. Plague on Gen. Jackson, that he broke no this good system, and set tho country afloat on the scs of experiment. Experiment and crpe rienre ! whal a mighty difference there is between them. General. And wo havo found n o to our sorrow ; for you sec, as soon a U. S. Hank wns put down, they went to chartering now state banks like all pos-ess'd and they wont to lend ng mo nev. and men wen', lo speculating. And General Jackson's pet banks took the lead in thu. In Inct he told them to go to ma king bills and nulling them out on tin strength of the public money that ho had given them. It beats every thing how the experiment lias work'd just exactly con trary to what Gon. Jackson and Mr. Van Hiireu and their trietids said, nnd ju-t ex actly as Mr. Adams nnd others predicted; for he said you know, thai the experiment would land the nation in bankruptcy ; and sure enough it has. Now I would go right back to where wo were when Gen. Jack, son begun the rascally experiment which has made us so much trouble. That's my plan. General. Gen. F. Ah, I -eo you are getting your head filled with Whig notions. I guess you have been reading that address of the Whig amalgamation monopoly Convention of hank liarou- and Whig lordling, that uiei nt Montnelicr lusi week. II 1). Why yes. I have read it, and 1 wish every body else would read it. It deals a good deal in matters of fact and t"lls a good many facts that I sno Harbor's paper and the other Van Huron pap.irs keep out of sight, nbout the causes of tho present distress and embarrassment. I wish, General, as you are going over to ice Harbor, thnt you would tell him lo put them facts into bis paper; and then I wish you nnd ho would put your heads together and nnswer.theni. What signifies lo keep things out of sight, and keep trying to, throw du-t in the eyes of tho people by an everlasting elnmor nbout monopolies. This isn't nntimasnnic, General. When you was upon nntimasnnry yon used to come out fair and square and toe the mark, and I know where to find you. Hut now I dont know I dont know about it. There iconis io bo tno much looking one way and rowing t'other. Gen. F. Looking nt the sun.) In fact, it is growing late, and I must pn'l ou, or I shall not he at Middlcbury in season. Good morning, (cracking In whip.) 11. I). Good morning but I say, Gen. oral, dont forget to toll Harbor to nnswer that address that we've been talking abnut, nnd to tell us what he thinks about Mr. Adam' prophecy three venrs ago of "uni versal bankruptcy," ns the fruit of tho ex. periiuent. And I say too, General, (rais ing hi-voice, tho General moving on,) I, say ask Harherto tell ns what has become of'the "corruptions of Van Hiirouism" that ho used lo lull; so niiich nouui. Wo want to know over here, (The General whips into n gallop, nnd is soon out of sight.) There is said to hove been a continuation nf this dialogue on the return of Gen. F.,' winch wo hope wo may bo able to give. hereafter Ed. Pko. Puces.
