You knew that the only liilTtTCtiCe of opinion existing Frcfc the M; liilcl • u -i. \va.s. astotbc mof/c of ctfcctinp;an object, ihe Stair which all admitted to be desirable, and believed to be attainable. You ha(l been jnfornned, by Mr. Gallatin, that be was the bearer of instructions, “autbonz- inp; the hope that their result would be .satisfactory.” This intimation from Mr. Gallatin being made with a perfect knowledge of the whole matter ; of all the difficulties and ob.-,lacles which had >ver existed, on the part of either Gov ernments, must have been understood hy you, as it w’as intended to be, a ilistinct assurance, that, in consideration of the important concessions of the act of.Tulv 182j, the United States w'ould ■^raive*the only remaining point of scri- yu«: difTerence. Yet you allow yourself to talk of the f^xistence of some “known subject of ineurabledifTerenceof opinion,’’between (Irnat Britain and the United State.s, on this question. Your incurable diflcrence of opinion 29 as ima^ir ai>, as your unalterable determination” to adhere to the Tol- onial System was transitory. That unalterable determination, on your part, on which you say the nef^otiation was SU‘5prndcd, on the 28th July, 18i31, was revoked by your act of July 5, 1S25. You had every reason of probability, in jiH lifion to the lan;uap;e of debate in tV. Senate of the United States, and of l\tr. Gallatin’s assurance, to believe and tn know, that the incurable diiTcrence of ouinion had followed the fate of the ’jnalterable determination to an early gravp. The position of your argument on all tbo e points is rendered still more en»- sins: by the fact, that long after the ci’tc cl your act of July, 18‘J5, long af- te- *he period, when, as you now say, y j' resolved lo substitute legisla tion ff^r negotiation, you had furnished Mr. Vaughan with instructions, to rc- Tiiiv tfj' Jicgotiation, on the contingen- fv f the repeal of our discriminating iiu I' OS. One supposition, and one alone, ex plains all those inconsistencies and con tradictions ; all these forced and uufoim- ded statements ; all the?e after thoughts. Y'ou were, in the spring of 182G, borne down by tlie clamours raised by your shipping interest, against the change in vour Colonial System. Eager fur some pretext, on W’hicb to abandon the policy of the act of 1S25, you seizeil on that of nicking a quarrel with the Arneiican tjiovernmcnt, of which you are now trying to lay the blame on our shoul ders. In one more letter, sir, the last with T^’hich I shall trouble you on the occa sion, I shall state more distinctly the grounds of this supposition, and recapi tulate the facts of the whole case. Meantime, I pray you to accept, the assurances, &c. AN AMF.UICAN Cl I IZKN".

In the counties of Windhanr) and Tol- latul, in this stale, silk has, for many yeais, been a staple article of produce. 'The soil of W indham county, is> we be lieve, Kentrally hard and rocky-^ltss here j valuable lor tillage than many purls oi 5:ntclHfrrncr. The Mulberry tree, \»hich fteds the silkworm, requires bui u small portion ol spjce, and the insects a)C attended, gen- trally, by boys and girL, so that little or no time is rccjuired, which would other wise be devoted to agricultural or manu- fttCturing pursuits. During the year ISCr*. ttie value of silk raised in tho rr-nii- ty of Windham, was estimated at 000. Thr value of the silk manufacture of Great Britain is reckoned at g45,000,- 000, and gives support to 300,OuO souls —Yet she imports all the raw material, anti her manufacturers have hitherto been ol)ligced to pay a duty of one dollar per pound on that raw material, 'i'he me chanical skill nece::sary for the silk man ufacture, is soon attainable by our enter- prizing countrymrn ; and \vhen we consi der that wp ran produce the raw material to an indefinite amount, wc arc at once impelled to the conclusion that the sub ject assumes the air of national impor tance. We have been informed, by a very in telligent »entl(*man, who has paid much attention to the sufiject, that silk tan be afiordiMi by the pound, at a much less rate in Conneciicut or any of the States, than the average price in France or Italy—ow ing, partly, to the rent of land being low er among us ; the climate subjecting the worm to fewer diseases; and the tree affording more leaves for feeding them. Should this prove lo be tjur, on more experience, it would afford us rm advan- taja* in commencing the manufacture of so important an article, insuring, as it would, our first attempt against foreign comp«‘tition, and preventing the necea- sity of protection from government. \V-e here take the liberty of saying, that Mr. Samuel Spalding, of tbis town, has grown this year, some hundred thousands of the silkworm. nh>:k;o.

The most siriking 'was that depriving European Spuniarcis of the oPwces they held under the Federal (io\ernnicnt, but AvALA^cHn.—A Montpelier (Ver mont) paper describes the sliding of u large quantity of earth and rocks from a mountain in Lincoln, Addison county, on ihe 27ih ult. The slide commenced from near the summit of the mountain. “ In its course it swept every thing in its way ; overturning trees by their roots : divesting them of roots, branches, and I)uik, often breaking them in short j)ie- Cfs, A number of the rocks were moved some distance, judged to weigh from fif teen to twnity tons. From, where it entered mill brook, its course was a tiorili easterly direction, 280 rods, the natural course of the brook which was very small, but ihe channel, cut by ihis freshet, ia now from two to ten rods in width ; and on either side are large qantities of flood wood, piled up in many places very high ; and fioni fifteen to twenty rods of the lower part is blocked up across the chan nel iti every direction. Some of the trees are standing on their tops, and generally stripped of roots, branches and bark, and broken in many pieces. The pile in some places is ten feet higli. Much of the timber is apparently buried several feel in sand and mud. One large birch tree was broken ofl' square, measuring tluee feet and nine inches where it was broken. One black ash was literally pounded into a broom, whose brush is seven feet long. The whole distance of these, ravages is a mile and a half, ar.d the quantity of huid thus suddenly meta morphosed into a barren waste, is l^k^nty five acres. The force of waiermust have been very great, at which we can/ujt wonder, when we consider the probable depth of the water. In some places, from appearanres, it must have been 30 feet high. Some of the trees on the sides of the cl.anncl were barked 30 or 10 feet high, and mud on them at that height.

We do not remember that our friends, the Mexicans, paid any ptiblic tribute, as did the Co- lornbians, to the memory of Adams and Jf fl’ersofi. ^Ve would fain ask why this dUtinction ? A most extraordinary and dangerous measure has been adopted bv the Legis- luture of Vera Cruz af;ainst Mr. Esteva, late Secretary of the Treasury. Appoin ted, it appears, by the President, Com missary General of the Customs at V'era Crux, he had just arrived to enter upon the duties of hisofBce. when he was com pelled, by an order of the legislature, “to leave the State, without any excuse or pretext wliatever, within the lerm of sev- eniy-iwo Imurs Irom the date of the or der at Jalapa; his departure being neces sary, in order to preserve tranquility.” Party spirit and individual hale appear lo have provoked this outrageous viola tion of personal rights as guaranteed by the Constitution, and ofihe rights of an oHicer of the General Government. It is with deep regret that we notice these dissensions in the new Republic—a stain upon their reputation abroad, and so pre- judical 'c themselves at home. Dates to the I7ih May have been receiv ed in Mexico from Guatemala. There were hopes that the disturbances would sooti terminate, but President Acre bad not yet entered San Salvador. This is represented as a strong place, and, if re sistance be resolved upon, the struggle may belong. The President ntoved his quarters, on the 7th, fr®m Nejapa to A- popa, where he remained on the lOtb ; a rkirmish having taken place two days before. Mexico is charged with taking advan- \ tage of the disorders of (iautcmala to se duce the province of Peten to join the Mexican Iecleration, in like manner as she poiscssed htrsclf of Ghiaiias.

A victualler and a liv ery-stable keeper resided near each other. A dispute arose between them which em bittered their feelings.
