We believe that this is tin- ttr.il time that
the name of the Hcv Dr. Cushinan has up

the HmiIchi Extension train on the evening
of the sixteenth of August, and we should
not use it now, except that he has publish-i-1

what' this means, all can judge fur them
selves. We have not one word to add to,
or take from, our former comments upon
the subject. There Is no question, in our
mind from the evidence, that the actions of
individuals upon the train were disgraceful
and outrageous, and we referred thereto as

haps some capital may be made out of the
false statement that Tiik Gioiik implicated
the Holland firemen in the allalr, but we
don't think it will work. Those lutoiostcd
in the attempt are welcome to the- whole
stock-in-trade. Wc expressly stated, in
our first comment, that we did not believe
a single fireman vvns engaged in it ; In the
second, we said that only one was impll

of the department to Investigate the matter.

When ancient newspapers, like ancient
families, In the course of events, cease to
lie first, and thereby their dignity, cii dila
tion and importance Ls impaired, they are
apt to betray a spirit of petty jealousy, and
treat with mis-statement those who, In the
same course of events, are elevated far
above them. It Is only In this principle
that we can reconcile the course of our
touchy neighbor In reference to the Pittsford
celebration. Their statement Is a tissue of
falsehoods from the beginning to the end.
Wc are bound to believe that they had a re
porter there, not, however, from their say so,
XoifaUum in unofaUum in oinnh would ap
ply with peculiar force. Their whole report,
moreover, excepting Colburn's speech, was
obtained at Tiik Gi.oiik office, and through
the courtesy of our reporter. There was
no understanding, express or implied, that
Dr. Caverly's address was for any paper
except The Glohk. Their reporter tlit not
notify the reporter of The Gloiie that they
"did not want the manuscript of Dr.
Caverly's address until the next ilay," or.
In fact, sny anything about It whatever.
We are pleased that they " have been com
pllinentod ' for the "manner," etc., and
liavo no iloubt of It, as we heard their
readers giving vent to some very emphatic
compliments, as they did on a former occa
slon when they so " hastily compiled " a
column and a half. Furthermore and
finally: If Dr. Caverly ever intended that
any one but Tiik Gums should have his
address, he never so said or Intimated, and
any such Idea, if one is now entertained,
must be the result of an afterthought. As
corroboration of this view, it was pub
licly announced from the stand that Tiik
Gihk would contain the complete report,
and the audience were infoimed when! It
-Tiik Gujuk could be obtained, and not
a word was said In rcterence to any other
paper. If It had been lemembered that
another was In existence, It was probably
illsmlssed with the thought that, as has
lieiii the custom for soma wwks, liclng
from one to two days behind time, the ad.

lion for Governor of General Adelbert
Ames, the, or a son-in-law of General Hen
jamln F. Ilutler, tho nomination of the re
mainder of the ticket, and, probably, the
adoption of a platform of principles, have
adjourned, but, unfortunately for tho pro
spects of the expectant temporary gover
nor, not In peace and harmony. Wo
have not, at the present writing, seen the
resolutions If Indeed, they adopted any
but they cannot accord very well with
those adopted by tho party at the east and In
thenorthwest. The Mississippi general, like
the Massachusetts general, had a fondness
for back pay, advocated it, drew It, and
pocketed It. It might not, however, be
deemed inconsistent, In Mississippi, to
nominate Ames for governor, nor endorse
him back pay and all and still condemn
the Increase of salary bill with its retroac
tive clause, as all parties, In that region of
tho country, have showed themselves of re
cent years, capable of swallowing almost
everything. His colleague, Senator James
L. Alcorn, repudiates the nomination and
announces himself an independent candl
date or governor. He charges Ames, and
justly, with being the most vindictive man
In Congress against the southern whites,
and calls upon tho wholo people of the
stato, without distinction of party, color or
race, to unite in redeeming the stato from
misrule. Be nator Alcorn has been a ml
dent of the state for some thirty years, and
Is thoroughly Identified with Its Interests.
He was originally a whig, was In tho lcgls.
laturc komc sixteen years,, was elected
governor on the republican ticket In 1809,
and two years after was sent to tho United
States Senate. His honesty, Integrity,
loyalty and ability have, we believe, never
been questioned, and he stands, to-day, n
representative man In Mississippi. All of
hi omclal positions have been obtained
without Intrigue or corruption, and ho li
one of the few of the old leaders at tho
south, who have heartily and honestly ac
cepted the situation, acted consistently w ith
his convictions, and be Is respected aod
Adclbcrt Ames Is a man of altogether
another stamp. He secms.ln obtaining the
nomination, to have employed the tactics
of his father-ln-law,as some of his whlldom
supporters, already, accuse him of selling
them out. Ills principle seems to have
been "you tickle me and I'll tickle you,"'
but having received the first "tickle" he
neglected to "tickle" back. He may prop
erly be denominated a "carpet bagger."
He was born In Maine, graduated at est
Point, oiiteiod the army, and nt the close
of tlie war was appointed military or pro
slonat governor of Mississippi, ami was,
soon after, placed In command of the
fourth military district, known as the "De
partment of the Mississippi." This latter
apHintment beam date the ITlh day of '
March, 1809, while the state was under
going reconstruction. Taking advantage
of Ills position, he procuied hlnvclC to be
elected to the United .States Senate, faking
his seat, as bucIi, March V, 1870, his term
expiring with the close of the present Con
gross. The legislature to be chosen nt the
coming election will elect Ills successor
the Senate. He has no desire or ambition
to be governor, but is determined that i
Adclbcrt Ames shall he Miceccdcd In the ,
United States Senate by Adclbcrt Ames.
Hence flic intrigues, the bargaining, the
chealliig, and the selling out. The pipes
must la- well laid for this purpose, and
liouilnatioin iimdc in icfcrcme to the line
ol piomotlon. If the bargain can lie
carried out, the man elected lieutenant
governor will be, In effect, elected gov.
eruor, and, under their peculiar laws,
other men will come along up. If the
wires can be properly manipulated all
along down the line, there, maybe some
hope for Ames, but he seems to have made
some fatal mistakes already. The Massa.
chusetts general has given him the course''
and distances, but lie has not liccn long
enough in politics yet to fully cover his
tracks. He will live and lean-, but wc
trust, In the meanwhile, he will be retired
to private life.

One of the strangest and most Interesting
episodes in the history of Vermont is that
of the disappearance of Hussell Colvin
from Manchester; the arrest, after the
lapse of many years, trial and conviction
of Stephen and Jesse Hoorn for bis mur
der, nnd the rc-appcaranco of Colvin in
time to save one of the convicts from flic
gallows, and tho other from a lifo impris
onment. There was nothing romantic hi
the story, as all the parties, their immediate
families, relatives aud connections, were
low, vulgar, brutal, and almost swinish, in
their dispositions, character and habits, and
the husband and wife, after their strange
separation of nearly a decade of years, did
not speflk to a'tirl, alhr, a' haixlj-glaim , til
recognition. Although there Is, In fact, no
romantic incidents connected therewith,
yet we doubt not that, in coining years,
many a talc will be constructed from
the almost tragicul part of the cafe. As n
matter of history, a.s, also, to be placed
among the curiosities of criminal literature,
it has a peculiar Importance. The case
Itself has been cited in nearlycveryc rlminal
trial which has taken place since, where
the evidence was, in whole or in part,
circumstantial, and on this account it
has, also, ncquircd an extraordinary im
portance. When, thcrcfoie, it was an
nounccd, a fow weeks ago, that tho Hon.
I.conard Sargcant, who had liccn one of the
counsel In the case, was preparing for pub
lication a full, perfect aud completehistory
of the affair, Including the testimony given
upon the trial, the confessions of the
respondents, the subsequent return of Col
vln, together witli all of the circumstances
of the case, we had reason to expect a valu.
able historical monograph. We, also, had
good cause to suppose that the tract would
form an Important contribution to the his
torical aud criminal literature of Vermont
and the United States, and if something
new was not absolutely brought to light,
yet we should have had all the facts which
had lieen well known and In print for, at
least, fifty years.
If wc understand the nature and object
of such publication, they are of one or
more kinds. All tho attainable facts may
be presented as they actually occurred,
without note or comment ; It may In- the
reprint of a book or paper, long out of
print, and that, too, without note or com
ment, save by the Introduction of any ad
ditional facts brought to light after the
first publication ; it may be n reprint with
historical, biographical and explanatory
notes, with the addition of new materials,
If any j or.lt may be a reprint and nothing
more. Thero may he other objects in such
publications, but they can, generally, he
grouped under onn or the other of those
mentioned. In undertaking such a work,
every available source nf information
should be Bought, and the publication made
as complete as possible. Wo believe that
the most satisfactory works of this nature
consist of an exact reprint of the original
document, with notea of a historical, bio.
graphical and explanatory nature j tho cir
cumstances, outside of tho original publica
tion, with any additional facts, unknown
originally, fully presented In introductions
and appendices, care lclng taken to pre.
sent verbatim copies of original documents,
and these annotated In the Bamo way as the
original text. We have received a copy of
Mr. Sargcant 'B pamphlet, entitled i " tho
trial, confessions and conviction of Jcsso
and Stephen Boom for tho murder of llus.
sell Colvin, and the return of tho nun sup.
posed to have been murdered j" have care,
fully read tho same, aud are forced to tho
conclusion that it is valueless as a contri.
butlon to history and useless to tho criminal
lawyer. We are sorry for this, for there
were facts, records, documents and publi
cations extant, sufficient to present tho
wholo story accurately and correctly. Tho
pamphlet, however, as issued, docs not ful
fil any of tho conditions wo have noted. It
neither gives as full an account of the trial
as was attainable, nor narrates the facts of
the case correctly, nor is it as full and
complcto as the original publications.
Before calling attention to Mr. Sargeant's
pamphlet, we will as briefly and concisely
as possible, summarize the main facts in
the case, which we gather from various
sources, mid which me entirely lettable,
Indeed, Mr. Sargcant, with here and there
Important exceptions, tells substantially tho
sam o story. In the spring of 1812, the
family of one Harney lloorn, residing In
Manchester, consisted of, among others,
hi 4 sons Stephen and Jew It,i.,in. and
ltusscll Colvin, who had married one of
the daughters. Thoyvvcicn low, lnutlh,

selves as well, peihaps. as with outsiders.
Colvln was partially Insane, and wns in the
habit of vvandci Ing from home, being ab

' vvoiks the author rondel's ids acknovvl.
" incuts for valuable Information."' Xow
" lieiuarkalili! Events," which was pub
lislied In 1825, was very meagre In its de
tails, while Mr. Haynes' biography did not
make Its appearance until twelve years
later. Wc doubt not, however, that the
facts contained In the pamphlet under con
sideration were obtained mainly from these
two works, with other ' lemarkidilc
events " compiled mainly, as the compiler
himself says, frnm u l.tU. (..Ulltm .)f " Hnni
on Fads," n valuable law hook, hi the pos
session of most lawyers. These two books
do not, however, exhaust the literatim; of
this icmarkable case. Wo have in our pos
session n pamphlet, (if thirty-two pages,
published in 18'2."i, containing all the facts,
the indictment, testimony, confessions, ad
vertisements, letters, letuinof Colvin, etc.,
etc., In full j a second edition llioiool', pub
lislied In 182(1, containing thirty-six pages;
a first and second edition both published
in 1820--of "the mystery developed; or,
Hussell Colvin, (supposed to bo nuirdoied,;
in full life," etc., containing a narative by
Mr. Haynes, a sermon pi cached by him,
nnd a "succinct account " of tho trial, etc.,
by a Mr. Waldo; a pamphlet of forty
eight pages. These, together, give n full
and complete account of the wholo transac
tion, e.ven nunc perfect than Is now given
us after a lapse of more than a half century
and should all have been u-od in locount
Ing, anew, the story. If it vveio worthy of
being recalled at all, It should have been
well done or let alone. In narrating the
subsequent career of the paitlcs, grave mis
takes are, also, made. For instance ; Jesse
was arrested for nmntrrftitinu coin, and not
for t'orer as stated. Theieare other in
accuracies, but we have already said more
than wo intended, and have succeeded, wo
think, In showing the unreliable character
of tlin work. If conoctly naiiatcd, It is
an interesting story, valuable both to tho

a riatii I'm' i, lie.
A week ago .vostorday, says the Detroit
Fiw ';r, of August sjfst, Xoi man Fire
man, n peddler, while driving ids wagon
i through the cotmtiy u few miles nui til of
i Ovid, Clinton county, stopped to get n
drink nl a creek crossing the highway. As
lie rose up from the creek he was bitten in
the leg by it large dog, which had conic
softly up behind ldni. nnd Freeman saw
two other good-sleil dogs near the wagon.
Ho sprang foi his vehicle, when the three
dogs mide at him together, and his shouts
and their yells started the horse olT on a
irot. I no pciiiiirr was ipitton seven or
eight times define ho found anything with
which he could defend himself, and then
he got hold of n stick about five foot long
which could lie easily handled. The dogs
lolteatod as lie picked up tlio stick, but
when Ficouiaii sought to gain the road they
all spuing for him. He s..ys that hestiitok
to kill, and kiii.oked cadi brute dow n in
turn, but as fast us Knocked down they
1 would spring up and attack him again,
Within live minutes after the battle
opened the peddler's baud'! weie rod with
blood, nnd Mood was running down into
i his hoots, bill by a foitiinalo blow lie so
disabled one of the snviller dogs that the
lirille had to draw out of the light. Their
was a lost again of four or live minutes,
I and Freeman walked slowly hack into a
lenec coiner anil cxatntneii liis clui) for a
better one. Without a movement on Ids
pait, the two dogs attacked him again, one
biting al liis legs, and the other leaping for
his tliiont. The latter animal caught his
teeth in the peddler's shoulder nnd tore
away all thr side of the man's coat, and
made ii wound in the llcsh which will be
weeks In healing. Freeman was diagged
down and both of the dogs were
on Ids back at once, though ho man
aged to shako them oil' and legaln
his feet. A blow from his Huh dashed
out thr larger dog's eve. and the brute ran
round and loimd In a ciicle, howling so
fearfully that the other dog ran away.
Watching his chance Ficrman hit the
crippled dog it blow which killed It. and
then he crawled down to the eicokand
fainted awav . Some men caixe along in a
wagon and discovered him, and he was
taken to n fai'in.hoiw and cared for.
On his left leg there arc nine wounds
from the teeth of the dogs. On tho right,
eleven: on the light arm, live; on tlio left
ami, three i on the hack, tluee ; on the
shoulder, two; on the face, two; on the
light Toot, tiio : on tl(. right hand, live;
on the left, two; undone on thu buck of
the head, making In all forty-five distinct
and separate bites. The deepest wounds
