It Is rather a late date In the history of
North America for the inauguration of n
jeligious war, butthc attempt Is being made
in Mexico. As usual, in such cases, the
'inly name of religion is prostituted and
iii.ule to do service against the liberty of
lie people, the liberty of the press, mid tl
'"recdomof conscience, although In this case
there are wrongs on the part of the Gov
eminent. All countries that have obtiducd
these inalienable rights, have accomplished
llielv ends and secured their possession oniy
hroiigh the bltleicsts of disappointments
and defeats, and their victories have often
turned into something worse than defeat.
"Why there should be this desire for power,
temporal power, on the part of religious dc
nominations, or toadies claiming to be such,
wc never could understand. The endeavor
to force a particular belief upon a man's
conscience, and compel him to join in n
form of worship nbliorcnl to his reason and
'onseience, is allko inexplicable. The very
fact of Its being forced would steel the hu
man heart against the reception of ltnques
tioned truths, and lead to irfiilelity nnd dis.
belief. Yet the world has, repeatedly, been
lelugcd in blood for the single avowed pur
pose, of spreading n particular form of be
lief. The stake, the gallows, the prison,
the pillory nud stocks have been resorted to
mid Used us "convci ting agents," not only
for the benefit of the victim himself, but,
idso, of his co-believers. Catholics aud Pro-
te.staiits, Jew and Gentile, Mohomcdan and
Mormon, the "Churchman" nud the "Puil.
tan" have been equally guilty. The cry
would go forth that they were persecuted
for conscience sake, "give us freedom to
worship God as we desire." This would
always serve as a rallying cry and the op-
jiosingsccls would gather In battle nrrny,
and fierce, bloody war would Inevitably cn-

the very principle of toleration. The con
A'icss of Mexico havo decreed that "tho

that "Congress cannot makolawBcstabllsh

is well enough and contains tho whole
loctrino of religious toleration. There Is
a further provision to tho effect that "no

In that by the decree oil denominations ex

to consider Its effect, or the effect ot the
clause declaring that "religious Institutions
cannot possess property." It will bo seen,
however, that the effect of the whole Is to
go from one cxtrcmo partially to tho other,
and that while there Is full Protestant
toleration thcic Is only partial Catholic
toleration. This Is nil wrong, but while
nil sects, creeds and religions should bo
placed on nn equality, it docs not justify

Infliction of religious punishment upon

Matthew I.von was. In some resnects.
one ot the most remarkable men that cer
figured in the political history, or business
industry, of Vermont, or of the United
Slates, big, buily, rough, uncouth, scml
cducatr d and overhearing, Jliougli he was.
At llie nrcsenl day. outside of rertnln
wards In cot tain cities, he never could have
obtained prominence In public life, save,
perhaps ns a ward politician, but ids very
nature rendered him 11 valuable and useful
man In his day and generation, and filled
lilm to wrcstlo with tho difileultics of new
tcnllcmcnU, give nn Impetus to business
enlerpri.se and, even, a shape to civil insti
tutions. Horn In obscurity and poverty,
and although, at times, In possession of
property which would, even, nt this day,
have placed him among the heavy capital
ists of the land, yet them never was n year

In want of money. lie had all the enenrv
and "push" requisite lo inaugurate business
enicipnses, overcoming whit to others
haw; been Insminoimtahlc obstacles, and
place lliein upon a successful footing.
Itlglit here, he railed. Whether this was
for a lack of business tack, or because he
had too many Irons in the fire at the same
time, we will not undertake to say, and.
Indeed, It Is 110 part of our purpose to In
uulre. Neither do wo Intend In irlve n itr.
tailed or, even, biief sketch of his life, any
further than it may lie necessary to show
who he was, and to throw linlit upon tho
question we purpose to broach. In fact, it
would bo n work of Mipcrcrlogation for us
to attempt to S'iy anything In reference to
either his life or character, inasmuch ns it
has been already done in the most exhaust
ive manner by the late Rev. I'limy H.
White, in an address before Iho Vermont
Historical Society, mid by A. N. Adams in
his admirable history ol Falrhaven. Lyon
came to this country when about sixteen
years old, being Indentured as was fro
qucntly the custom in those days to some
one in Connecticut who, In consideration
thereof, payed his passage money. The
Indenture was, subsequently, sold for n
pair of steers, hence his favoriilc oath or
ejaculation: "lly the two bulls thatie
damedmc." From this time until 1775 or
1770, his life is wrapped in impentrnble ob
scurity. In one of these two yens he is
first known to be in Vermont and then, or
soon after in the employ of Governor Chit
tenden in Arlington or elsewhere.
Here is where Iho trouble, difficulty and,
as It now appears, a lingering doubt comes
in. The fact that -Matthew Lyon was n
victim to the odious alien and sedition law
and represented, or was elected to repre
sent three different states or territories in
tho national congress, has made the facts
connected with his history of absorbing in
te.'cst to every historical student of Ver
mont, while ills connection witli 0110 in
dustrial nud business enterprises have con
tributed to intensify that Interest. Every
detail nnd particular connected with him
has been dllligenlly; and carefully traced,
pci haps to 11 greater extent than those of
any of our culler public men. It lias been
unquestioned, until within a recent dale,
that; while In Vermont lie resided in Ar
lington until 1783, when lie removed to
Falrhaven, whence, In 1800, nt the close
of Ids second term In congress, he removed
to Kentucky. A convention of delegates
of "the social Inhabitants of the N. Hamp
shire Grants on Ihc "West side" and "those
on the cast side the Hange of Iho Green
.Mountn.ns-" was held at Dorset on the 21th
of July 1770. The proceedings of tho con
vention were not published in full until re
ccutly. although portions thereof were
printed in the Connecticut Uourant In Frh-
ruaiy, 1777, ami from these copied Into
Force's "Aiiicilcaii Areliiews," and, with
these exceptions, wcro supposed to be lost
past recovery. Within a few years, what
puiports to be 11 complete copy of the pro
ceedings, including a list of dcleirotes has
been discovered, in which Malthcw Lyon
anil Abraham .luckson are reported as dele
gates from "No. Wallliicford." If we on-
derstund the matter, this statement is the
only tiling lo connect Lyon with Walliug-
lorn, or as iiullcating that ho ever resided
there. To our mind this furnishes not the
slightest reason for believing that ho ever
lived in Wiilllngford, if in fact, bu l'onic.
Rented It In that connection. We will clvc
our reasons for this opinion In tho fewest
words possible nnd without any attempt at
argument. Our reasons are briefly thus:
there was never such a town ns "North
Wnlllngford : the cony of the 'iournal is
full of errors. James "llautley" Is credited
as delegate Irom Coinwal, but bo signs hU
name "ilantle," and one of the dcle-ratcs

prove two thliign, namely that tho list Is
not to bo relied upon and that tho fact of

that Lyon lived in Arlington In 1770, as It
was during this same summer, or possibly

tioned at Jericho with a body of soldiers,
and was cashiered for deserting hU post,

The vicinity of the executive mansion

to the keen interest of the affair, and peo
ple soon came (locking from ail parts of
the city to learn the putlculars,

The facts in the two me ns follows:
Mr. Pomeroy wns wnlklnir leisurely, a few
minutes nftr r 2 o'clock, along New Yoik
avenue, from Fifteenth to Fourteenth
street, and when near the corner ot thejat
tcr street observed C'onwnv standiiiL' wilh.

fired nt him, fit the same tlmo backing Into
the roadway. This ball passed through
Mr. Pomcroy's hat, an inch or so above bis

fired, one of which penetrated the late

staggered on being struck, but did not fall
He turned and walked Into the office of a
real estate firm on the corner. Mr. Con.

small Hemlngton six-shooter, to his side
pocket nnd walked across the street. Ho
was lollowcu by two gentlemen. Messrs
Addison and Stlllson, the latter of whom
took Conway bv the arm. savlne. "What
have you done ? "Why did you shoot that
man?" Mr. Conway replied with n dogged
air ami wandering manner that ho ruined
him and his family. Walking back to the
comer where the affair occurred. Mr. Still.
son advised lilm lo go to the Central police
hive himself ur.
Col. It. G. Hinton, formerly of Kansas,
nu old Kansas friend of both of them, not
knowing whom Conway had assaulted,
joined in Stillson's advice, and started with
them to the station. Learning that Mr.
Pomeroy was the victim, lie went to his
house, whither he bad nnlvcd, and
found that the ball had spent itself in pass
ing through tho coat, vest nnd under gar
ments, Inflicting a wound not dangerous,
Mr. Conway went to the polico headquar
ters, accompanied by Mr. Stlllson, and sur
rendered himself. Ho wns locked up, and
Mr. Hlchard Merrick, a well-known law.

There seems to bo llttlo doubt among all
of Conway's old friends hero that ho has
been tho victim of hallucinations as to be
ing pursued by enemies becking his life and
destroying his reputation, when it appears
beyond a doubt that no one but himself has
been his enemy.
The facts Ieullng to tbo nt-sault are a re-
mnrkable illustration of misdirected ambi
tion and vanity destroying tbcllfo nnd use.
fulness of a promising man.
Col. Hinton slated that Conway had
been In his ofliee several times dm Ing tho
week, on the first occasion asking the aid
of his f i lend to procure him somo work
that ho might be ublo lo get bread, and
then the next day nnd afterwards asking
fur money to get away to New York. At
these interviews he tnlkcd very mild, look
ing round mysteriously and declaring In

wlio bad destroyed his reputation and
would take his life. So strangely did he
net, that Col. Hilton, as well us a gentle
man who wns present on two occasions,
fenred that he was crazy, aud discussed
tho propriety of having him put under
conway'h oo.noiiessionai. jiistoiiy.
Tho only Inundation that there can
possibly be for the remarks made by Con
way, grows out of an act of benevolence
performed for Mrs. Conway by the cx-scn-ator,
the tlrcumstances attending which,
arc as follows 1 Mr. Conway, It will be re
mcinbercd, made n remnrkablo speech In
1803, In the House, In which ho proposed,

of that character, that the North should

thing for the lady, so that she might be able
to get a Hying for herself nnd children.

The manufactures of ltutland arc no

acted within her borders, although she has
not the reputation of being extensively en
gaged therein. The inaible interests com
prise the chief business nnd from this n

business spi ing up nnd thrive with abund

factures of whatever character arothccliief

pie, and arc absolutely necessary to lis
rapid and wholesome growth in prosperity
and numbers. Take nwny a few of the
manufactories we could name from Hut
land nnd her foundation would tremble.
Build more of them and Hulland will soon
become a mighty power in the land. The
men who control tlieso powerful marls of
trade are those whom wc can 111 afford i

thles manufactured, too, lire a never-falling
source of profit, net only to the manufac
turer, but to the town as well. They give
us a reputation outside of our ow n sphere,
build up our name abroad, nnd in their
transportation give means and support to
hundreds of others.
These thoughts 111c suggested in speaking
of a few facts relating to one of Hutlaml's
largest nnd best manufactories, known as
thoEaglo Foundry and Mnchlno Works,
owned and controlled by Messrs. .Mansfield
& Stlmsou. This firm is composed of
Gcorgo K. Mansfield and Charles L. Stim.
son, two of the solid and substantial busi
ness men of thu town.
Their business U the manufacturing of
castings of all kinds, both iron and bias;
marble and slate machinery, boilers, wood-
working machines, etc , nnd they nlso pay
some attention to repairs of said machinery.
Mr. Georgo Jt. Mansfield, the senior par
tner of the firm wns formerly engaged In tho
same business at Fitchburg, Mass. Ho
came to Bellows Falls In 1818 and built up
an extensive foundry business there, which
was destroyed by fire In 1850. He, how
ever rebuilt his works nnd contluued manil
fncturlng.thcro until 'fit, when hocamoto
ltutland. He hero became n partner with
the Brandon Iron & Car Wheel Company
In tho ltutland Foundry Company, ut tho
same location wlicro that company now do
business, In 1850, Mr. Mansfield, in com
pany with John II Bowman purchased tho
Hutiand Foundry, where they did the
manufacturing business until in June,
1858, tho buildings wcro destroyed by fire.
Tho firm did not own the. buildings, liav-
Ing leased them for llvo years of tho old
company, but suffered somo considerable
loss nud camo out of the fire with about
$15,000 worth of stock, belonging to them,
on hnnd. With this they concluded upon
continuing the business and accordingly
built tho foundry nnd machine works on
Freight street, substantially tho same ns
now owned and occupied by Messrs. Mans,
field and Stlnison. This they named tho
"Eaglo Foundry and Mnchlno Works."
Mr. Bowman retired from tho .firm in Dc
ccmber 1805, and tho present junior part
ner, Mr. O. L. Stlnison, purchased an Inter
est In the business, nud tho present firm
sprang into existence.
Tho firm liavo sluce made Important ad
ditions to the works ami Improved tho
manufactory as regards its capacity to 11
largo extent. They liavo been somewhat
unfortunnto as to fire which has however,
mado no material delay in their woik or
diminished In tfio least, their enterprise or
ability In iria'hufacturing" their goods. In
the summer bf '07 they suffered quite se
verely from nn Incendiary fire which total
ly destroyed the pattern shop, with n num
ber of valuable patterns, and, also, the
planing mill connected with the establish
ment. They nt once rebuilt their pattern
shops, added a brick blacksmith shop and
put In a trip hammer.
They havo employed from twenty-fivo lo
sixty men the ycar round In the different
departments of their .business and nt tho
present time tlicy havo somo over thirty
men. The firm manufacture entirely to
order nnd are brimful of work all the
while. Tbcy linvo never had occasion to
solicit n Job of work since Iho works wcro
started, while they are far behind their
orders nt present. They receive orders for
their work fiom every portion of the coun
try, from Mnlno lo California, and have
quite recently put up marble works In tho
cities of Washington, Boston, New Yord,
Milwaukee nud various Intermediate points.
On Sunday mornlnj, the Cth Inst., their
foundry wns partially deslioycd by fire,
Involving n loss of 8,000, on which they
bad 1111 Insurance of 2, 1 so. They haw,
notwithstanding this, continued casting,
mid nro now engaged in preparations to
rebuild upon n surer and more extensive
bnsls than before. Upon the new foundry
they nro to creel two cupolas, Instead of
one ns foiincrly, nnd to pay particular re
gard to the iiiT.ingenienls of the building
In case of (lie, or danger therefrom. The
foundry is a separate building from the
machine shops, the latter of which com
pliscs several departments in a long row
of wcll-oidcrcd buildings, embracing the
new machinery, forge; blacksmith, planing
and palleru rooms and shops, while front
Ing on the street Is the olliee ot the firm.
Mr. Stlnison, who lias charge of the multi
