Mtucry in Dcltuvnic. Our renders will learn with profound gratifi cation that a U1M" row ponding befoto tin- Leg islature of Delaware, providing for tlio aboli tion of Slavery in thai Flat", and that there is rvrry reason tn believe it vtiil bo passed. The onlv fear the fiirnds of emancipation in Del- nwaro entertain, is that the Third-party Abo liticnists of the Xortli may li.krfeio to prevent thc adaption cf its gnat measure. A writer in the Atw York (Ibserirr of tlto 27tlt January, 'iiinins himelf" A Dolawarian,"' who is a warm advocate of the hill before the Lnyili tore, expresses sciions apprehenrions that it may be defeated by " the eloquent anti-slavery speeches " in Wilmington.

His earnest prayer is that thU clays ef ardent philanthropist.', who havo already postponed the pood worl: of emancipation in Delaware for Kims, will Keep nut rf the Slate. and l't ihein aton ! lie think if those pro slavorv abolithmMs " could he l;crt still for a month or fix weeks to come, the bill might be p-?cd, and another added to the list of I-'r.ix Status,." r.nt, a? thi Oj"rvcr very i'l'tly ray, ptrli n.n abolitionism " lit" a horror of prudent meas ures." I'nnnlici'iii always has. It has no re spect for the law of foibcaranco and Lindner', ti'id knows nothing of the clui'tinn doctiinetliat " all things are mt expedient."

It is altogether a weal; and mvcct-lcm-pcrcd afl'air, this f.iiiatical spirit of Lilcry It has done a great deal of good in the world, and will doubtless do mure. It . alont doing pood. It visits peaceful comimiuitie.1 and stirs. tliem up into refreshing and wholesome conten tions, and jealousies, ami bickering anil all uncharilableness. It invades the social circle and thj Church of O'o'l, and finding them in the rjuiet and happy enjoyment of their social and religious relations and duties, it says they arc asleep on the brink of a precipice : and fo from pure regard for their welfare, it arouses them and pushes them off. It never minds its own busine", finding the bo-due." nf the woild quite as much as it can conveniently attend to. It is greatly shocked by the amount of total depravi ty it encounters. It swears that it .shall necr po to Heaven unless nthcr pnp! repent. It has the iutcii'c&t sympathy for the oppressed and down-trodden in the abstract, but always so manages its practical iflorts to relieve them as considerably to increase their mifleritigs and wrongs. It sometimes (though rarely) goes where the evil and t! e sin it rails against ex ist, and wing hitteiing-r.ims ami starvation to produce a rcfoimation it gets roughly handled I when it straitway returns to its place of security and sets up as a m ilyr in the cause of " out raged humanity." It always in-ists upon it that I'rojrtiiles was right in that iron-bed--tcid business and that it was his religions duty ' to cutoff tho--c wdio were too long, and stretch those who were too short for it. It is clear in the coin iction that freedom of thought and ac tion and conscience con-Uts solely in thinking and acting and believing as it does. It is al ways ' sure it is right," and always "going ahead." These are some of the qualities and propensi ties of that spirit of fiinticism tint Iris afflicted the world, more or less ever since tha time of Anastasius. In our own d iv it flourishes in va rious forms. It generally consumes itself in its own flames after having accomplished a certain nmouiitof evil. We think we perceive signs that Fome forms of it in our country are destined before long to follow their predecessors to the land of dreams. (loo I tivn u ill havo occasion to rejoice, and -oiiolv will bo improved there by. We have been sonvwlnt led away from our The College Nuhsiiipllnii. Ills with n gratification to which wo find it difficult to give adequate litteiance, that Vc an nounce the completion oflho subscription in nhl of the funds oflho University, no far as to m ike binding the payment of llu sunn scribed. Uy the official rortif.catc oflho Committee ap pointed for the purpose, which will be found in ourcolumiis to day, it will be seen that the re quired sum, of Fifty Tliowand Dollars was sub sciibcd within the lime prescribed by the terms oftlie subsciiption, and what is better yet, more than Nineteen Thousand Dollars of this Finn has been conliibiilcd by tho Town of liurlington. Such substantial evidence of a hearty good will to this institution, must he nliko gratifying to those particularly charged' wilh its administra tion and to the friends of learning here and else where. Wo learn that thc subscription was made up as follows: In llostun and Hartford, 83,800 " N'ew York City, 2,100 " Vermont and vicinity, .lt.US'J President once more demanded : Is any ono op tioned to tho motion I If no ono opposes, it will lie presumed, to In unanimously adopted.

Tho facts with regard lo the sources of thin subscripiion show: 1st. 'i'ho firm confidence, which the citizens of tfiis town, and the good peo ple of Vermont gencrallj' have in the character instruction mid discipline of the Univcrsiiv ; 2d. J lie In go iniorlanco wlucli tne poo,l ami in telligent of the State and its vicinity attach to the University as a fundanicntal part in the sys tem of means which Ins li.'eii ndopled for origi nating and dill'ii-nig the light of knowledge, lor sustaining and unloh'.ing the intellectual and moral energies ofthe people, and for carrying on ward both individuals and the body politic to llieir true and ultimate ends ; 3d. A fixed determina tion on tho part of the financial functionaries of the I'uiversilv to place it on a broad and ample pecuniary basis, llieir skill and energy in carry ing thi? determination out to its proper results, and last, but by no means least, the disposition I of tho people generally to respond lo their ef- f.nts. Jf no other evidence of the fact existed, it is fully demonstrated by the results of this great enterprise thus fir advanced, that the University 1 lias such a place in the hearts of the wise and I patriotic of this State and tho country adjacent 1 Ih it they are ready to consecrate their hard earn j cd silver and gold to promote its giowlh, and to j enable it to realize its high and noble aim3 with ' still greater peri", c'ii n , and lastly that the L'nivcrsity has numerous and powerful fiieiuK I both at homo and abroad. For, although the amount subscribed in the Cities, is by no means large, still, when all tho circumslances under which it was done, arc taken into thc account, it is plain, that a state of feeling is indicated by it, which can be relied upon for future action. Judging from the rapidity with which tho last ijHiOjOOO and upwards Las been Fiib'criUd, we tru-t that tho day is not far distant, when wo shall bd called upon to announce, through our columns, the km t file ami available subscription of the whole sum, $100,000 which tho guar dians of tho Unhcrsity propose to raise. Town lectins. On Tuesday the usual meeting was he'd for the election of Town Officers, and tho transac tion of other matters. The following is a list ofthe principal officers elected : N'leeim'n, Jon.v X. 1'oMr.uov, Hamum. Nichols, IlEMiV 11. Ktacv. 7'ilCJl (Jlsrk, Ciialox 1". Davcv. Constable, Isaac '-nr.uweop.

As tho respoi?eib!o IVJitor is absent, his " I'icum te- IIeaiiley, before tho Literary .Societies oflho University, last August, cannot have forgotten his allusion to the advancement of tho principle of personal and mental freedom and in.leponil ence, even in tho time-cemented despotism of urope. There are perhaps, no (loverninents in tho World whero real freedom of thought and sjieech is less toleiat-d than in (icrniany nnd russia. Tho censorship of tho press there is most stringent and coniprohons'iic. Ages ol oUiiienceliiive riven improssne owi r lo tho mandates of the monarch, and tin own prodigious obstacles in tho way of" tho ono progrosive principle." lint that principle tho principle that recognizes the liberty and equali ty t.f all mankind though it may bo retarded n its piogress, is irresistible. It may advance slowly, but it adianeest; and tho tenitorv it Vermont nmi Canada Itallront'.s. Our neighbors of the Messenger and llrpnb liean are kind enough lo express their entire sat isfaction with our" position'' touching tho pro ject of constructing a railroad from liurlington tolhc north line ofthe state, to form a continu ous lino to Montreal. Wo are glad of it, of course. It is quite as much as a peaceably-disposed man wishes to do, in these belligerent times, to hold controversies with those wdioso views he really oppo?os. I.ocofocolsni and rad icalism generally, (our courteous contemporary of the Republican will pardon us for saying,) furnish substantial evils enough lor our weap ons we havo no need to takoup a quarrel with a shadow. l!ut tho Messenger thinks our equanimity is destined lo he greatly disturbed by a communi cation in its columns from an 'llastern Citizen ol franklin county,' wdio points out a uric route for the lloston and .Montreal railwav-. Our friend niii-t remember that wo have had consid erable to do with " new routes " in our railroad experience, and arc consequently not so likely a he may imagine to bo cast down by tho vg grFtion of on". I'ailron! rout s are not verj- for midable affairs until after Ihey are sun eyed though it is true that tho process of survejing sometimes increases the formidable ch.'.ia I' rof them, a ourfiiends in Dane, or Marlow X. II lor instance, can leeungiy icstitv. nutlet lis look, at the nev route indicated by the .l'ss.-n "re's correspondent. It is lids : neginning ai ri. jciins, u. I,., run m a "South-Kasteily direction over almost a dead le "vel until vou I'trikethelinoof 1.1 degrees at the "X. II. comer ol Pranklm, near tho village of 'I-releighsbiirgl, thenco on tho Kast IS ink of "1 ranklin I'ondto the .Mis-i-m Itiver near th 'firm of Charles Gallup, Kq.. in .Sheldon, "thence through Mason's lalley farm, a little lo "the II l't of the residence of Jonathan Smith, "l.sq., tliencodown a stream known as the Men- ver nrooi; to near us moiitn in lil.icli Lreel;, on "the Ha-tside of slid Creek lo tho farm of Joel "l.arlow, hn.. in I'uirlield, thenre until" l'iiir- "lielil stream to IJurk Hollow down said liol "low to 1unoilo riior in Tairfix up HrowtiV "Kiver to a junction with tho Central Uoad in "llsscx." And this is tho route that tho m?spng"r thinks will 'rullla u some," or ho "thai! bo again inistikcn!" Itullle us! Xot so long, certainlj-, as fit. Albtm is iindUtiirhcil by it. Why, my dear man, the project, il'carried out, would bo death to St. Albans, and, in the com parison, fun to ns ! And you quietly, and with out a protest or a lisp of remon-trance, put it into your columns to frighten liurlington ! Di not, wo implore you, calculate so largely on our verdancy. When we see you in a blaze of excitement about it. wo may take tiuu to ex amine thc matter and see in what way it will ef fect ourselves. Till than wo havo too much con tldence in the sagicity of our Si. Albms friendi to foal a breath of discomposure. lint, the Messenger seems to overlook a little circumstance well calculated to allay any awk ward apprehensions that the new route might liave a tendenev to awaken in tho minds of the friends ofthe" Vermont mid Canada Ilailrond."' It easily accounts to us for thc coinplaicency with which St. Albans contemplate. the new project, and prevents tho present possibility (if our becoming "ruffled." Wo must remind (be .Messenger, therefore, that the charter of tl e Vermont and Canada Hailroads explicitly pro vides that that road shall pass through " St. Al bans Village,'' and that it shall connect with the liuthmd road at !lurlinlon, and wilh the Cen tral pretty much where it pleases. In this rath er anti-exciting position cf things, while tho 'vested rights" of liurlington and St. Albans remain uninfringed, and thc 'I'.aster.i Citizen's' route remains unchartered, the Messenger will probably manage to contain its astonishment when it discolors that wo continue in a state of pleasant repose a real " sans souei" since itscorresponlcnt's gun was fired. Wo desire, however, to express no opinion touching (be practicability or the superior ad vantages, ofthe route inlicated by the "llistern Citizen." It may bo all that he represents it, and probably is: and it is not for us to fay that a railway will not bo constructed upon it. Wo would neither disparage nor otherwise oppose it. In this matter St. Albans must take caro of herself. If a project that ono of her pipers his thus started thould lake form and substance," we ran only tender her our sympathy and cum miseratian ! We trust our Iriend oflho Mes senger will bo as well content wilh this, as he was with our foimer reply. and cxii"iise. altetidiiu' the transportation of ' him for it.
