Talk about religious toleration, and the

ac.sfcin newspapers. It has now been
-uppicsscd, we presume. At any rate the
Right Reveiend Hishop l'mctll has issued

Ill' always a pleasing duty for an editor
be able to announce gie.it di.-covcrics,
.ind In eontiibule, so fur us in their power,
to Hie dissemination of collect knowledge
in reference to men and events. It makes
no dlffiicnce who discovers tho Hint ray of
light or solves a grand political problem, we
tru-t that we shall always rite so far su
perior to all feelings of petty jealousy, that
we may do our sharu in helping spread tlie
Hidden cause of great events, even when
i hey arc first eliminated by a cotemporary.
Oiiricadersaioaware that John C. Jleenan,
he prize fighter, isdc.nl, and we take it
that tliuy did not shed many fears over Ids
untimely departure as they most assuredly
should have done. And why ? Rccaiise,
in our cotemporary iuforms us, his prize
light with Tom S.vycrs first made Great
Hritl.m respect America ; caused citizens
of the United States to hold up their heads
in England ; "carried to tlie heait of the
English nation a new conviction of tho
power of America j" and, finally, Bottled
the Alabama claims.
Acuiious question lias been raised by
Lyman Tremaln, in behalf of Stokes, grow
ing out of the law defining degrees of mur
der enacted by the last legislature of New
Yolk. Anion;; Hie forty-four " lenuests "
made to the court, to charge the jury as
law governing tlie case, Is one, to the
effect, that the statute of 1873 having re
pealed the previous statute, "defining mur
der in the first dcgiec," there is no statute
in force applicable to that crime, "as was
defined prior to that statute" that is at the
time Fish was shot and that, therefore,
theiels no law in existence under which
Stokes can be convicted, under the present
indictment, of murder, manslaughter or
any other crime. It has been repeatedly
decided in New York, as well as elsewhere,
that the lepcal of a statute, unaccompan
ied by a provision that the repealed law
should remain in force until all offenses
committed under it should be disposed of,
lut only in lespect to them, prevented any
prosecution of such offenders and worked
their immediate discharge. It is necessary
that these "saving clauses" should be care
fully worded, and great caie was taken with
the "new murder law," as it is called ; and
'f would, therefore, be an extraordmay In
stance of careless legislation if, in the end,
Treniuln's point should be found to have
l ien well taken.
THIJ LAST M.A.MII'lt.
I util within a few months, not the re
motest appioaeh to an aspcisioii has ever
ci ii attempted to bo cast upon the purity
i lintegiity of thocomts of Veimont.
We ind the people not only of Veimont,
nil "f the whole country have been ac
iislomcd to look upon tho courls of this
s u model in every respect. They,
nat i-lhe judges comprising our omits,
ommanded respect, not only by their im
p.utlallty, the soundness of their decisions,
he purity of their private life mid conduct,
lint, ttbo, from the complete avoidance of
II luici meddling with politics after their
ecptiiiicc of jiullii.il position. In the
iiulnations anil recriminations, the passion
ud excitement which grew out of and to
.nine extent still continues- Hie railroad
luntioveisics, tbeie was a shoit time when
Kilections weie (list, by some newspapeis
without Hie state, upon our judges, but In
Hie end, they mado the amende honorable,
and said the matters complained of were
tho faults of our system, if any faults there
were, and not of the court Itself. Wo do
not wish lo bo understood as saying that
our couitHor judges never mado mistakes,
bec.iuso such a statement would bo accord
ing to them more than human attributes.
Our volumes of reports, moreover, show
instances in which the same coutt, upon a
more mature consideration and a re-argument
of tho principles involved, havo re
versed their former decisions and pro
nounced the law to bo to tho coulinry of
that which they had theretofore declared It
to he. Wo cannot say that tho opinion of
Judge Hoyre, In reference to tho receiver
ship of the Vermont Central and other rail
roads was exactly In accordance with our
views of how tlie caso should have been
decided, but we are a layman and ho Is i
jurist i his opinion Is entitled to weight,
ours, comparatively, to none ; but wo have
no doubt that he was honest in his conclusions-
Hut aside, from these railroad
matters, never wcro orjr conrts and judges
oplr,w, eren,' coTCitly, charged with
dishonor, until Tuesday morning. The
charge, mado In tho form ot a most offens
ive insinuation, comes, this time, from a
Vermont dally newspaper, and Its motive
Is apparent to those acquainted with the
facts. It Is a matter of regret that such
sentiments so untrue In fact, so lusultlng
to our judges Individually, so disgraceful to
our state, and tending, as they must, to
bring our administration of justice Into dis
reputeshould have originated In Itutlaud
county, but so It Is. We quotes "Any
" observer of men and things can see In the
" stale of Vermont that our sys'em of
" electing judges works badly, and that
" the judiciary do not feel as Independent
" as they ought. How can men exercise a
" self-respect nnd Independence, when
" they know at the end ot every two years
' they must descend into the dirty pool of
" caucus, and the Intrigues of nu election,
" nnd be put upon tho witness stand nnd
" be cross-examined by a political commit
" tee as to whether they favor such and
" such a man for President, governor, or
" member of Congress."
Is there a word of tiulh In the whole
charge or Insinuation, Have the bare fact
contained In the Intimation that the judges
are elected once in two years? Tnko tho
whole history of tlie stale, sluco its ndniis
sion into the Union down to the present
day, does It not give the complete lie to tho
whole asset Hon, save, perhaps, in n single
instance? Ilemciuber that the judges are
not charged with being bribed with n rail
road pass, being subservient lo a railroad
or other coipouitlon, or with being cor
inpted by the use of money. Tho charge,
however, Is distinctly made that they are
wanting in independence nnd self-respect;
that they "descend Info the dirty pool of
"caucus;" intrigue for elections ; nnd are
"cio.-s-e.iun!ned by a political committee"
as to their political opinions before they
can obtain an election ns judge. Can any
one point to a single instance in tho history
of Veimont where an individual lias, under
any ciicumstances, sought an election as
judge of the Supreme Couit ? With one
exception, lo which we shall refer, has
politics ccr had anything to do with their
selection? In 1797, politics urn high and
Isaac Ticbeiioi, a federalist, who was then
chief justice, was elected goernor, but
Israel Smith, a republican who, a few years
later, was oil'eied a seat in Mr. Jeflcrson's
cabinet, was elected to the chicl justice
ship. In 1708, for tho first and only time
politics entered into judicial elections, and
Israel Smith was supplanted ; but in 1801,
notwithstanding the state was strongly
federal, the chief justice Jonathan Robin-
son was a republican and was, by that
paity, a few years thereafter, transferred
from Hie bench to tho United States Sen
ate. To conic down to a biter period : In
1813, three out of Hie five judges of the
supreme couit were opposed to the majority
of the legislature and of the people of the
state in political opinions. The same was
true in 1815 and in 1830, and with Hie ex
ception of Hie ten years commencing in
1800, the minority political party has al
ways been represented on Hie bench. These
facts alone prove that our judges arc not
compelled to and do not, "intrigue" for an
election, or "descend into tlie dirty pool
"of caucus for that purpose.
There is another branch to this denuncia
tion, charge or insinuation, which we will
briefly notice, in connection with tlie first,
because, if true, it applies to all of the
judicial tribunals of the state nllkc. The
following is the language of tlie article re
fcrred to, we quote its exact words : "Our
"highest law court of general jurisdiction
"for the trial of questions of fact, is com
"posed of one chief judge elected by the
"legislature, nud two assistant judges
"elected by the people In the several cotin
"ties, every two years. Now, who can say
"that upon questions which create great
"public excitement, that this feeling of
"responsibility to n popular sentiment does
"not tip the scales of justice from its dead
"level ?" This general charge, is, also, In
the nature of an Insinuation, embracing, by
its terms, both the judges of the supreme
and county courts ; and, If true, would be
of equal force In reference to judges of
probate and justices of tho peace. We be
liove that Hie people of Vermont havo
watched Hie course of Jhcir judges with in
terest and attention, because, being an in
telligent people, they know how much tho
security of their persous and property de
pend upon the integrity, Impartiality and
legal knowledge of their courls. Now
Chailes K. Williams presided in the county
court nineteen years; Stephen Itoyce twenty-five
years ; Isaac F. Itcdlleld, twenty
four years ; and John I'ierpoint, sixteen
ycaia ; all of them.except Judge I'ierpoint,
receiving annual elections, and bo being
elected in Hie s.uno manner until within
the. p.T-t three years, when the biennial sys
tern of elections was adopted. We might
take Iho list of judges for Hie past fifty
years and, wilh two or three exceptions, it
will be found that each and every of them
served to long as he would, and only failed
ot nu election because ho declined longer
to serve. Yet we me told tlieso incn have
no independence or self-respect ; that they
"intrigue" for re-elections, and decide im
poitant cases, contrary to law and fact
for such is tlie Intimation that they may
continue to hold a judicial position. Is tlie
position of judge of the supremo court ot
Vermont so very lucrative, that men of
talent, reputable men in tho community,
will sacrifice independence, self respect and
honor and violate their solemn oaths in
order to obtain n re-election ? (lo ask John
Picipolnt, Asaliel Peck, lloyt 11. Wheeler,
Timothy 1'. Itedfield nnd their associates
and neighbors, what Ihey think of this law,
vile insinuation, that lliey can make so
much money out of their office that in
order to retain It, a year or two longer, they
saeiifico every tiling tliat men hold dear.
Ask tho fellow citizens of our living judges
as well as the former acquaintances of
thoso now deceased, if they believe that
our judges me aud havo been men wanting
in Independence, self respect and honor, or
havo been in the habit ot deciding Import
ant cases for tho political benefits they ex
peeled to receivo thereby ? (Jo into tho
different towns in this county and state,
nnd ask the residents if the judges of tho
county court, who have been select
ed from their midst, are of this cringing,
debased, corrupt class, and tho answer will
bo fresh, strong nnd hearty. With tho
people wo will leave the mutter, not doubt
Ing, for an Instant, what will lxi their
answer to this baso calumny.

The Itoston Adcrticr of Tuesday saws i
Considerable interest was occasioned in
tho city Tuesday by tho posting of a dis.
patch in the .Merchants' Exchange, of
which the following is a copy ;
PnoviDENCE, It. I., Oct. 28. It Is cur
rent here that the Spragues are embaiiassed
nnd it is necessary for them to raise one or
two millions to keep from suspension. It
is said they have succeeded In pulling
through for to-day, but trouble is antici
pated for to-morow. Their assets are said
to lie seven millions greater than their
liabilities, and want of current funds Is the
cause. A meeting of their ci editors takes
place at 4 o'clock to-day.
In regard to a meeting of creditors hav
ing been called, the wording ot tlie des
patch is probably too general, us it would
doubtless be imposrablo to secure a meeting
of all creditors at n moment's notice. Per
haps some of those largely interested may
havo been called together for consultation.
In i espouse to our inquiries by telegraph,
w e learn from Providence that no Informa
tion in regard to the financial condition of
Hie Spragues can propeily bo communi

that there have been several meetings of

and vicinity Wednesday, nnd within 30

alluded lo In the telegraph columns of Tin:
(li.oiii: on Wednesday morning. John II.
Rcsley, a son of Hoi ace Resley, Ksq.,

grieved by an article which appeared In the
Times assailing tlie character of his father,
and charging that there was fiaud prnclbed
In paying Hie jurois nnd talesmen summon
ed In Hie case of tlie State vs. Lear, who
wns comlctcd of crime last week. At 2 p.
in. Monday, young Resley went to the
Time office armed with a revolver nnd
netting I.loyd L. Clary, the editor, in the
hall nt the top of Hie first lliht rf stairs
he put to him tho question "Did you write
that article ?" at Hie same time drawing
ids pistol. Clary exclaimed, "John, give
me a chance." Resley said "No," and Im
mediately fired two shots, the one passing
through Clary's neck aud the other cater
ing his chest, just below the heart, inflict
ing n fatal wound.
Mr. llrndley, collecting agent for the
Timtf, was in the editorial loom, and the
door being open he heard the winds that
pased between Resley and Clary. Hu
says that Rcsley went .up stalls- and met
Clary on the binding nnd then the words
passed w hlch uie given above. Clary had
been in the piess room ou the third floor,
nnd was returning to tlie editorial room
when lie encountered Resley.
Mr. MeC'ardle, foreman of the com
posing loom of the Time office, makes the
following statement :
About 2 o'clock Mr. Clary left the press
loom nnd went down stairs". In two min
utes or less I heard two shots in rapid suc
cession. I ran to the door leading down
stairs, ami found Mr. Clary on the second
step, the blood gushing from his throat and
breast, lie was returning up stairs. He
exclaimed, "Co for a doctor !" Ho had one
hand to bis throat, nnd In theothcr a piMol.
lie was falling or leaning against Hie wall.
Tlio wouls cuine from hU throat in gasps.
There was no one ou the stairs but Clary.
I ran down to the street and saw John f.
Rcsley standing on fbo opposite side, ges
liculating wildly. Ho said, "I did it, and
I am ready for any of his friends," and nt
the same time i cached behind him as if to
draw a pistol.
Mr. Clary was carried to Ilio thiid floor
and physician.', summoned Dr. Cliailcs II.

bo asked for and reported." The speaker
here presented three tables : 1st Aggre
gate tabic of all tho items reported ; 2d
A table by townships ; Ud Denomination
al table. From tho statements by towns,
I condense the following :
Total number of scholars, 2,710.
Number in infant classes, fiOO.
Average attendance, 1,1517.
Number of teachers, 201.
Number of conversions, 42.
Number of deaths, 12.
Volumes in libraries (1,271.

Expenses and contributions. $1,-174.31,
and only five repoited that they held teach

It appeals from the denominational table
that the Congregatloualists take the lead In
all of the items, s.ne Hie conversions, "in
this the MclhodUls rulhcr take the lead and
they only lepoit seventeen," and the num
ber of volumes in libraries in these two tho
Congregalionalisls stand second. The
church which has tlie largest number of
scholars, teacbeis and laigest expenditures
is Hie second Congregational of lienning
ton ; nnd thu church reporting the largest
number of conversions nnd most volumes
in library is the Methodist of Hie same vil
lage. After regretting that responses to
Hie calls for statistics from the different
towns were so few in some cases, very Im

fullness of reports hereafter, and calling at
tentlon to the fact that only eleven schools
bold regular teachers' meetings, Hut twenty-one
schools continue tho sessions during
the year, i nil four from four to six months.
The rejiin t closed na follows i "It should
be remembered that the aggregate results
of the Sunday School ell'orts in any place
are not visible nor are they to be fully Indi
