Tlio mention of "Lllierly Hall," nt Sud
liury, A't., now nmong tlio tilings of tin
past, will call to this memory of many (if
our millers ways of pleasantness nml patlii
of country pcaccftilticss. Years ngo, v lien

nil virtuous communities, nature seemed to
tlo its lest In hrhighig the hest down upon
that (pilot old place. Tho wind Mew fun,
nnd when it rained, fun poured upon nil,
It wns the easiest, healthiest, quietest, eosl
est old place In New England. 3Ien, wo
men nnd child! en did ns they pleased, nnd
the tithing men of the village helped them.
Telegrams never appeared In the town, mid
the meat of tho dally journals enme hut
once a week, In tho shnpe of the 3Ilddle
hury Banner, the Orwell Dugle, or the
Rutland Mercury. No 0110 cared to know
of things lieforc they happened, nnd, like
ancient prophets, they gne lengthy con
sideration to rumors before they believed
them. Once or twice in the manv sum
mers wo passed there, two people only weio
anxious enough for the news to drive old
Jack nnd the buck-hoard seven miles to get
them. Life there was ns near vegetation
and perfection ns it w ell could be. Hut wo
are allowing our feelings to run nwny with
us, for the old house, with Its twenty-one
gables, has gone, and wo must think 'of it
as tho children of Israel thought upon the
homes of their fathers, nnd wish to get
Hyde was .1 character. He was at once
the most respected and richest man In the
community- Long before the railroad sys
tem was introduced in the country, Ids
father, who met an untimely death from
rolling off a log, and allowing the log to
roll over hinC established himself as a
keener of the half-way tavern on the stage
road between Albany and the upper cud of
Lake Clianiplaln. Here, as the niicienl
register shows, Silas AVrlght, AVebster,
-Alangtim, B. F. Butler, of Sandy Hill ;
Levi Woodbury, Emmons (sumamed Pop,;
A'an Buren, John Qulncy Adams, and bun
dreds of others known to political fame,
put up for tho night, or waited a. change
of horses and the services of a good dinner.
The original Hyde always had a story at
hand, In which some one of these worthies
bore a conspicuous part ; hut that fatal log
put at end to them long ngo. Hyde, the
son, who recently died, full of honors anil
associate judge of the county of Rutland,
inherited the property, aud the most excel
lent characteristics of bis father. Reared
among the dally chances of associating
with the great, the intellectual, and the
witty of our country, he seemed to have
become saturated with their most winning
peculiarities. He could not only tell a
story without a hatchet, but be could han
dle one that cut lioth ways In telling It.
About twenty years ago on the suggestion
and recommendation ot tho late Isaac O.
Barnes, we went to Hyde's to "see for our
selves, and take rooms for the season." A
pleasant ride from Bellows Falls over the
Green mountains, on a soft .Tune morning,
was enough in itself to make us fall in love
with our anticipations. Our undo John
(who is weighty authority on epitaphs)
was along with us, to "see for himself"
whether lisliing was really what it was said
to lie, slept all the way through tho marble
quarries, and didn't see a tombstone, and nt
about four in the nftcnioon we reached the
end of our railway travel. A small boy,
with hair of orange hue, eyes and habila
ments of gray, stood upon the platform
eating domesticum drops. As he appear
ed to bo willing for something, wc asked
him the route to Hyde's, for we yet hail
seven miles more of mountain riding to do
before wo should reach that desired point.
"Hyde's!" said he, "I'm como for you, I
s'pose; the wagon's round t'other side the
bulldin'i horses are nfecrcd o' them en
gines." AVo soon rattled up Into the town of
Brandon, nnd passing through were in
formed by our youthful driver that "Dou
glas was Wn in this place ; I s'pose vou
know him ?"
It was Stephen A. Dnuglas ho referred
to, ami that was the last reference ho made
to anything until wo reached the foot of a
long aud tedious hill, when he said it was
usual in hot weather for " fat men to get
out and help tho horses by ascending on
foot." Uncle John got thoroughly aroused
by the time we were passing ""Widdcr "
Stark's one-door house, half way up the
hill. No amount of swearing would stop
his perspiration. AVu halted a few mo
ments to allow our horses to feed, and had
a few word9 with a lank old citizen, (who
wo afterwards learned was the reliable dea
con of tho town), engaged in putting in
new shingles on the " widdcr s" roof,
whcro ho ' really thought they were need
ed." Thu deacon was slightly drunk, but
not dangerously so to him, as tho house
was of but one story, and the eaves so near
the ground that thu hollyhocks, not more
than half grown In height, were blooming
nnd blushing nlxivo them. The deacon was
glad to sco us " city folks," and would have
given all tho geographical information thu
neighborhood was capable, of if we could
Fairly over tho hill wc soon gained sight
of the church of Sudbury, whoso four tin.
tipped spires glittered In tho sunlight,
"just ono mile from Hyde's all tho way
down hill," as our driver told us. The
number of these spires excited our reason
ing ingenuity. Whilo one would have
.been ample for architectural effect, and
would have been more economical in tho
building, w o w ondered why a peoplo cele
brated for thrift and simplicity, astho A'cr
moutcrs are, should have required four.
Our driver enlightened us. In most New
England towns, where tho population is
sparso and thinly settled, a single church
building Is used for several denominations.
The Sudbury church served Presbyterians,
3Ictkodlsts, Unlversallsts, nnd as thu town
hall. Hence the four spires ouo apiece.
Passing through the villagowo stopped
at tho post olllco and left tho mails, exam
ined tho stall In tho postmaster's stable,
whcro the celebrated stallion Trumpeter,
the father of all the Blackhawks.commlttcd
suicide, nnd soon after, ut a smart gallon.
drove up to tho porch ut Hyde's. Tho
iiortly proprietor was standing at tho door ;
in form, a perfect Pickwick, his left hand
neatly bestowed beneath his coat-tails, his
right waving us n welcome. Dr. Boncset
was thero to present us, and with the Ian
gunge of his introduction wo will close our
memory for tho present :
"This Is31r. A'an Dam, Governor Hyde,
and this is 3Ir. i 3Ir. , you will
know him. Ho is tho historian. Ho takes
tho facts of our history and embelishes
