l in the last Legislature was not made under the most favorable auspices. It was urged as a party measure by leading Democrats, who seemed to be actuated more by a spirit of party propagandism than by a desire that Vermont should fulfill to the letter and spirit her confederate obligations. But the Legislature, nevertheless, referred the matter to the Commissioners on the Revision of the Statutes for their opinion. It is understood that the Commissioners will advise a repeal, and that Gov. Fairbanks favors this action. Governor Sprague, of Rhode Island, has publicly declared himself in favor of the immediate abrogation of the Personal Liberty bill of that State, and he thinks that the General Assembly, as soon as they convene (in January,) will without hesitation second his own sentiments by repealing the obnoxious statute. The Rhode Island Personal Liberty act, in the opinion of legal men, is so constructed as not to conflict directly with the provisions of the Constitution.
