SON-IMPORTATION, Ac.—WINDHAM IN REVOLUTIONARY TIMES. Previous to tlie Revolutionary War, the American colonies were dependent on the mother countiy for all articlea of luzary^ and many of prime necessity. Great Britain, not only discouraged but, in regard to a variety of articles, prohibited their manu. facture in her dependencies. At the begin-ing of the troubles preceding the Revolu-tionaiy war, the dependence of the coloniea excitcd deep interest, causing much anxiety in the public mind, and measures were ear. ly taken to awaken attention to the aril, to encourage the people to engage in domaatic manufiKturea,and todiacard foreign &brica and luxuries. The town of Boston moved promptly in the matter, and through her example mcny towns in New England agreed to the nonimportation, sale and use of foreign manu. lactures and luxuries. Windliam was foremost among the towiw of Connecticut in resisting the aggreasions of Great Britain on the rights and privileg-es of t he colonics, and ahowed herself ready from the fint, to make any saeriiices neces-aaiy to secure liberty and independence. We invite particular attention to the following report of the action of the people at B town meeting, held in Windham, Jan. 10, I7G8. Many of the reasons urged in the re port of the committee for discarding foreign ftbi;iea and luxuries then are pertinent to the preaeBt time: ~ Att a Town meeting held att Windham on the 7ih Day of Decemb'r 1767, A Com’te waa appointed. To take Into Consideration The letters and Mattera Commvmcated To the Sclect men of thia Town, by the Select men of the town of Boaton, that some EIEm:- tual Meuurea Might ba agreed uponTopto-mot* Induatty, Aconomy A Manufactnrea; There by To prevent the Importation of European Commoditiea, which Threaten the Country with poverty and ruin, and their report thereon make To TheSaid Toitttj att Their adjournment on the 2nd Tueaday of Jan’y Then next.

GREELEY’S “AMERICAN CONFLICT.” iVe i*v e received from the enterprising publishers, O. D. Case A Co., of Hartford, a second installment of Greeley’a forthcoming history of the great conflict, which is now raging in and desolating the Southern portion o f our countiy. The work bears all the characteristics which would be naturally ixpteted from the peculiar tikhiti 6f tbe author—terse, direct and forcible in style, treating the subject from a moral and political point of view and seeking to reveal and aet forth the spirit and motivea of the great acton in tbe chain of events which haa led to the scene of blood which it is hoped will complete the daik drama. That a writer in Mr. Greeley’a poaition* having bt'cn, as he has, a conspicuous and effective aCtof in some of the very events he describes, should be wholly dispaasionate and unbiased, however candid he may intend to be, is not to be expected; No readercan peniM hia account of any of the political conteata which ha\e agiuted the mind of the conntry, without at once per-deving upon which side are the sympathies of the writer. No one oould fail to gather from the tone of his style that in the Whig party he was an ardent and devot«d Whig; that Henry Clay waa his political idol; and that a protective tariff, in Ms view, wai the one great thing needful to develop American industry and production. This thorough sympathy with what he conaiden the right side in the controveny enters into all his descriptiona of events and actors; and the reauU is a histoiy of the Rebellion and the •venta leading to it, with what Horace G reeley thinks about i t That his opinions upon the topica treated are not correct and just, we, who should probably agree upon moat pointa with him aa to the intrinsic right or wrong of the matter, do aot of couise mean to say. The portion of the work befoie us only b r ii^ the history down to tbe “ DredSeott” case, and of course we cannot apeak of his treatment o f tbe Rebellion itself except as we may infer ita apirit and scope firam the pages of this preliminary portion of the history. That it will be graphic and Animated we may be aure; and, upon the whole, we may confidently expect it to be one of the most interesting of the many histories of the Rebellion i« jirdgresii, and,-so far u actual fiMU ai« conceroed, one of the laaat aectoritte and reliable. I t ia illuatrated with mimeroos engnT-ings, embraciag porti^itt o f leadiBg atates-men, general, and eminent civlians, both Union and Confederate, and views of battle-scenea, maps, Ac. The flnt volume we nndentand, will be issued about the 1st of June, when ita delivery to subscribers will commence, it being sold only by subscription. The second volume will not be issued till after the cIcMofthewar. The mechanical axecution, lika everything from tha prcM of Case,Lock-wood A Co., is all that could bo deair^. FarthaJoanal. V A G A R I E S . Trc OaowM On— Did you ever meet an individual who was not in some sense your superior? You think j k >. Ah, sir; but you met him then without his crown on. Every person is gifted with some transcend, ent quality that makes him a king among his follows. Hut many will sit all their life long in the valley uf humiliation, bccause they will refuse to put their crowns on. Tbe crown ! it bean tbe sciubUnce of tbe cross, it may be. Bear it to the brow— doea it pierce you 7 is it a crown of tboms ? D o n ’t C a l l Her F o o l i s h— I remember to have hear.l a fastidious bachelor say that when he took tbe ladies abroad, he always took care that they, did not do anything j foolish. What a responsibility! Small wonder that so many of the fraternity put far away the day when such a responsibility should become permanent. That the oflSce would be no sinecure, every sensible Udy will freely admit while her warme»t sympathi<!s will be enlisted in behalf of sucb as embark in so perilous an undertaking- I f “ to be wise and love exceeds man’s might,’ how considerate to expect weak women to be occasiouhlly, at least—well—foolish. But my dear sir, when she g rafJ Is to you the mastership, do not forget that hvrhappineiw is tested very much in the privilege of being foolish. O, it is a very sweet thing to cast aaide the pseudo dignity that aha will feel compelled sometimes to assume. Pray don’t call her foolish ; call her a woman. WaiTiMO Foa TME P re s s .—All tyroawbo would essay a literary career, may not be awara that it is not so much tha merit of their pnductions that will give them a placo in th e literary world, as some circumstantial merit or some happy accident or incident that will give prestige to her name, and, perhapa, to every actof her life. Didn’ t a young lady remark to me that she never read newspaper poems unless they were associated with the names of some bmiliar and fovorite author? Now I know that some of my own dear acquaintances can write poetry, aa well as Felicia ^mans, if not aa lofty, at leaat m pure m beautifVil. It haa never appeared that Mrs. Ilemsns, in W litenry endeavor, met such refriger-anta as did her less notable but, perhaps, no leas worthy successor and nameaake. Ah, dear young ladies, you who would essay to a Ii teraiy career, shun to uk the counsel of experience, but write awaj whenever and wherever the golden moment shall overtake you. I t will satisfy your Mpirations and enrich your own life, if it do not meet the approbation of savants, or the welcome of such u would make name the standard of merit. Write on then ; but if you are Writing for the press, do not commit the egregious blun der of copying common manuscript upon love-letter paper ; foolscap will do ai well, and the loss, if rejected or declined, will not be “ Love’s labor lost.” In cogitating over choice of manuscript, the very general rule obtains that whatever is least vital and most objectionable to yourself will be greeted with the most cordial welcome. There is no accounting for an editor’s taste. But above all, do aim to write legibly. At beat, you will have occasion enough til reclaim upon your own ideas, modified and mystified by the tranaitiow. Write on, then, young Miea;yon will be aoon enough weary ofthetuk, and content to return to the mora domestic pursuits of life; but don’t be discouraged by the failures of others. ________ ________ Abtistx.

We copy from the Hartford Pru$ of Monday, the following inmmary of the operii-tions of our armies in Virginfat last week, including the great battles of Ihuraday and Friday: GRAND OPENING o r T H l CAMPAIGN: The campaign opena most auapicioosly for the Union eauae. Aa the comprahenaive plan of Grant and Butler ia developed it ia seen to be bold, brilliant and sound. And success haa ao for attended every movement. Tbe initial movement was made by the army of the Potomac which cruased tbe Rapidan at Germania and Ely’s ^or^,Tuesday night Lee made no oppositioa to tbe crossing. By Wednesday night Gen. Hancock was camped on tbe old Cbancellon-ville battle ground, Gen. Warren was at tbe old Wilderness tavern, and Gen. Sedgwick held tbe road from the latter to Germania Ford. Immediately upon crosHing, our cavalry pushed forward south of Chan-celloraville, out discovered no enemy, except weak parties of cavalry. This position wa* gained in style by our troops, with very little straggling. Grant and Meade sp«nt the niglit at Germania Ford. On Thursday, at 3 a. m., our army wns in motion. Gen. llsncock’s corps was on the inarch from Cbancellorsville soutWcstvrly on tbe Pamunky road to Grove Church; Gen. lYarren from Old Wilderness tavern to Parker’s store on tbe Orange Court Hoilto plank road ; Sedgwick’* corps was to fi-llow i>ebind Warren’s; Gen. Sbcridsn was to concentrate tbe whole cavalry corps at Piney Branch Church, a few miles south of Chan-cellorsville, and look up Stuart’s cavalry. At C a. m. reports came that the enemy were advancing on both the turnpike and plank road from tbe direction of Orange Court Ilouse. Grant gave tbe order to halt and form line of battle; wbich was done on one of the ridges crossing tbe roads from tbe northwest to the southeast Sedgwick took tbe right, AVarren the ceritet’.and Hancock was expected to close up on tbe left. Skirmishing began about 11 a. m. Warren ordered Gridin’s brigade forward to feel the enemy. They were encountered in heavy force and fine position on a wooded range. Bartlett’s brigade moved up to tbe left, Ajeta' regulars to tbe right, and Sweetzer’s acted as feserves. A ti!\eie fight ensued, and tbe two advancc brigitdcs were forced back after two boura’ stubborn resistance. The horses uf two guns of tbe 3d Mass. battery were killed and tbe guns lost Sweetzer’s and Wadsworth’s brigades moved up and held the enemy in check. Af-tar brisk firing for an hour the enemy drew off. The principal loss was in Ayers and Bartlett’s brigades, probably about 600 in aU. Among the wounded were Gen. fort- Iett,sligblly; Col. Hayes, 18thMass.,slightly ; CoT. Green, 118tb Pa., Col. Gurney, 9tb Mass., and Col. Lombard, 4th Micb. We took 300 prisonera. Gen. Hancock was ordered to turn off tbe road he wa.a pursuing arid haaten to tbe field of battle by a cross road. At 3 p. m. it became evident that the enemy were trying to throw a great force between llaf>- cock and th« remainder of the army. Getty’s division of Sedgwick’s corns was thrown out to stop thia dangeroua demonstration. It was soon met by Hancock’s advance, Mott’s division, and tbe two formed across tbe plank road from Cbancellonville to Orange Court House. Grant promptly ordered an adtaflM. tbe dense woods prevented tbe use of much artillery, but tbe musketry fire was the sharpest in the history of the army. Our line steadily held its ground uiitil the whole corpa formed. A brigade of Robinson’s division was ordered to take the enemy in Hancock’s front by the. right flank, but darkness came on, and the fight ceased. Our loss was about 1,000. Gen. Alex. Hayes was killed, Gens. Getty, Gregg and Owens, and Cols. Camel and Tyler, wounded. Gen. Hancock is reported to have a alight wound, as also Colonel Bartlett, 57th Maas. Tbe 5th New York cavalry, in advance on tbe road to Parker’s store, was attacked by a superior force in the morning and driven back with considerable loss. Gen. Sheridan sent a message to Gen. Meade in the evening to the effect that he had met a part of Stuart’s cavalry and was driving them in overy direction. Tbe ^ u lt of Tburaday’a operations is s^nnmed up thus: Lee made two fierce attempts to cut our army in two,one by attack on the right, to cut Cff Burnside, not yet across the river, and one on the left to cut off Han^k. ^ tb signally failed. Tbun-day night our army waa fully ctmcentrated, in good position, and Burnside was up and on our right. O b Friday a grand battle otctfr?ed, probably the squareat and moat terrific that ever took place in Virginia. All reports concur in giving Grant the victoiy, and that the rebels have only been aaved from an overwhelming itout by the impenetrable wooda which enabled them to mask their movements. Lee made repeated and furi-oua asaiiulta on both wings with temporary success, but was each time driven back; ami at 4 p. m. a grand assault along tbe whole line waa handsomely repulsed. Towards dark the enemy fell in concentrated fbrce upon tbe right, and suddenly crushed in a portion of Sragwick’s lino, but be re-formed and prevented further disaster. Lee fell back and the battle-field was ours, wi'h tbe rebel killed and wounded. It U reported that Grant was in pursuit on SatuHay. Meantime Gen. Butler, with ^Baldy” Smith, has been executing one of the roost brrlliant movements of the war. He had assembled a great force at Yorktcwn and Williamsburg, as if for an advance on Richmond by the peninsula, lie even occupied West Point, and workmen were engigetl in building wharves, as if for landing troops, and as late as Wednesday troops were marching up tbe York river; aud we know by private letters that their officers supposed their destination was West Point. Suddenly, Wednesday night, a great cloud of tnns^rts moved up the York river, the troopa were embarked, and Thursday night they were up tbe James, and on Friday morning bad landed and secured impregnable positions above and below the Appomattox, with tbegunboats and iron-clads toaid, menacing Ricbmoml and Petersburg at once. It seems certain thai the railroad connecting tbe two cities was cut, and thatPeteis-bu^ was evacuated by tbe enemy. Everything, the correspondents say, ia workmg well in that quarter. A force of cavalry under Gen. Kants atart-fd from Suffield, Va., Wednesday mrming, went to Ifickford. on the Petenbmrg and Weldon railroad, and it is reported deatroy-ed a bridgiB 300 feet long. From there be might go to Weldon, or, it seema not im-proDable to us, to some pdnt on the road jbmiBg the only renaining coiueclioa of Richmond with the South the one rinming NO. 20. to Danville. Another cavalry force aUrted from Williamsburg on Wedneada^, to deceive tbe enemyj and went to within ten inllea of Richmond. It ia believed they have joined Butler tin the James.

The following ia the 2Vt6«iu'f aanmary of the tertiflc battle of Friday, wbich ended in Lce’a retreat: The day m w fourteen houra of fijchting. Gen. Grant, having his army in poaition, waa ready in tbe luoming to Tipen the engagement, but waa anticipated. Ewell attacked Sedgwick on tbe right at quaher before five, and Longatreet attacked Hancock «m the U ft at nearly the same moim nt Bott attacks were reaolme,- but both were repulsed; and since our men were only anxious to belli their ground, the line of battle swayed neither forward nor back. From 7 or 8 till 11 there waa a lull, broken only by skirmishes at different pointa. Tbe line which Grant held was nearly the same as on the previous dsy, and atretched nearly six miles in length. Tbedi«p<Mition of corpa wa.a also the same, except that Bumside’a corps was on the field, and that parU of it were from time to lime l>rought into action. At eleven, the enemy bcgM to preaa closely up to Warren, in the center, and Sedgwick, on the right. Sedgwick, iwt liking to be crowded, advanced, drove Ewell back to his second lin<fj and there left him, having taken not more than hour Ibr tbe work. Warren ia emulous of the example, but in front of Warren’s right ia an open field, wooda begrond, and the edge of tbe wooda fniwna with hasty earthworka, behind wbich the compact masses of the enemy and tbe enomy’a guns are sheltered. Tbe corpa uA . P. Hill’s, tbe same against which be fought on .Thursday. Reaihved that be will not lie idle, Warren goea to hia left, thinks the ground a little more favorable, and sends in Wadsworth’s and Robinson’s divisions. The two divisions go steadily forward for a apace, and there ia a promise of their success, but the rebel forcea are moving rapidly agiiinst them, their advance dies away into a halt, and the halt becomes aAitreat Gen. Wadsworth ia not willing that his divisMn should retreat; aohe rides out in fr>mt of tbeir wavering linejand ahO'wa before them for a moment the brightnaas of his pemonsl courage, but in anotMr moment folia with a rebel bullet through hia brain. His division makea no further effort, but falls back to ita old ground, and tbe advance is at an end. From 12 to 5 in the afternoon there were occasional assaultt, but no figbtii^ of consequence. Both sides weregatberingat^ength for another effort, and at 5 1-2,- flancock on the left, while preparing and jiwt ready to assault, ia biUirelf, as in the morning, attacked stidtlenly and with extreme energy. IV t momentum of tbe rebel masses carried them at firat through portkina of Hancock’s forces. Then they were checked, the attack changed sides, and Longxtreet lii^ the seomd time in one d«y vfM ^pulsed witb great slaughter. Then came two houra of quiet,and then, when the battle was thought to be over for the night, another and a finil attack for on Sedgwick’s right, foiling with its utmost force on two brigades jmt added to tbe old Sixth Corpa. They were driven back some distance, two generals were ettp-tured, and for half an bOUr it seemed as it tbe enemy were abdut to aain a dangeroua advantage. Gen. Sed^icK rode to the field, arrested the grt>wing diaaster, ordered up reinfMe«'meMi(, and whh his woirted tenacity of purpose held Cut to the line wbich his cor|M bad occupied. So much as the new brij^adcs covcred had t«i bo given up. But it appeared afterward that the slight success of the enemy was not important, nor even encouraging to them, for it could not ftertuade tbeU to ^tp on e their retraat. THE rUMVTT OF LEE. Washington, May 10.—At daylight on Saturd.iy, General Ordera wertf receivvii, ordering the trains that had reached Ely’s Ford, to proceed back again to Cha cellora-ville, and up to noon,- on Siiturdayy they were constantly passing di>wn the pike towards Spottsylvania Court Ilouse, to wliich the cavalry division of Gens. Gregg and Wilson bad preceded them. During tbe day Bumside’a were marched to tbe same place.- Ixe, discovering tbe move which completely flanked bis right, began falling back, and our army, encouraged by the prospects of victory, cluac-ly punued him. A special to tbo Philadelphia Itijttirer, under (late of Washington, May 9th, says that Gen. Meade again moved on the enemy and had a brisk fight at Todd’s tavern, just north of P.> river, at mght It w m found tbart tbo rebel sriny was retreating on three roadi, running southward toward Richmond. On Sunday the rebels attempted to make another stsnd, bnt Meade again fell upon them, and the dispatchas to-night confirm the report that they are retreating still further to the Noith Anna river. They b.td succeeded in getting off most of their wounded, up to Saturday night. Tbe colored troops were not put into the engagement, but were herd: as a reserve Witb Oen. Burnside. We have lost but two pieces of artillery altogether. Tbe Philadolpliia Bulletin sayv that Gen. Warren’s army corps ia close to Oen. Hancock’s, in close punuit of the enemy. On Sunday morning the baitlle wu renewed, and we drove the rebela down to Po river. Tha whole rebel army ww biting back, and by night they had baea driven in every direetion, thongh they made a atvb-bom rfiistanee. •S '• '• ' ■ ' I f One-half CelOTin I w S T . ’ . .* r .
