Or St. Johnsbnry.
The Engliih are just now enjoying
themselves. It is true that Ireland is in a
slate bordering on revolution, and that the
efforts made by the Gladstone ministry
(or the bettering or the oondition or that
unhappy island are pretty thoroughly de
feated by the House or Lords in the first
instanoe, and whatever good gets adopted
by the peers is immediately destroyed by
the other extremists, the agitators in Ire
land. Just now the lords are bothering
Gladstone by making his arrears or rent
bill, by which he tried to give tenants a
living chance, utterly valueless to the op
pressed class. Such is their notion that it
is said Gladstone may resign and appeal
to the country ; and some or the leading
newspapers openly say it Is a serious
question whether the House or Lords
should be retained as a patt or Great
Britain's governmental system.
But joy reigns, notwithstanding all
these things for gaily dressed British sol
diers are leaving England for Egypt, and
John Bull has what can be oalled a fight
on his hands all by himself. France was
going to take some part in the Egyptian
troubles, but when the ministry asked a
vote of credit for some military expenses
tho chamber of deputies refused it, and
now the French ministry has resigned,
tho premier, De Freycinot, deolaring that
he will no longer hold office.
This action takes the help or Franoeout
or the problem. Then at Constantinople
there has been a conference, from which
Russia has at last withdrawn, saying that
the present Egyptian troubles aro of two
distinot lots, in only one of whiob, the
possiblo disturbance of tho Suez canal,
Kassia has any intoroat. Nobody conies
forward to "preserve order" in Egypt ex
cept England. The sultan has refused to
declare Arab! a rebel, and is making but
little preparation to do anything at all ol
practical value. This leaves England
owning the present Egyptian war pretty
much all by herself.
Arabi has announced that tho Khedive,
Tcwfik, is so given over to English domi
nation tbat opposition to him while under
this domination will be maintained. Tho
robel chief has quite a large force near
Alexandria, and little skirmishes ocour
now and then. These rights do not
amount to anything, and it is probable
that there will be for some weeks more of
an appearanoe of squabble than or battle
in the Egyptian contest. It can hardly be
that Arabi can make a successful stand
when English troops in any number got
on the ground .
What the climate will do is another
thing that may make the expedition costly'
in life and property. And finally the hap
piness of Great Britain at having a com
fortable war on her hands may be
chnnged to the disagreeable sensation of
having it transformed into an uncomforta
ble quarrel with Russia or some of the
other great powers, bocauso of jealousy ot
England's exercise of power so near the
great highway of Asia, the Suez canal.
But tho domineering Englishman is not a
coward, and may be tho prospect of con
tending with anybody would not make
him really unhappy.
Statb Tbeasurt. The close of the
fiscal year, July 31, showed cash on hand
and in banks $126,118.66; due on Slate
tax of 1881, $218.91; semi-annunl tax due
from savings banks, $28,107.03; total as
sets, $154 605.23. The liabilities are
$206,917.24, of which $135,500 is the agri
cultural college fund, not due for eight
years. There is due the insane asylum
for care of insane about $35,000, not in
cluded in the above liabilities. The sav
ings bank tax for the year timounta to
about $53,000, of which nearly four fifths
goes to the towns and the rest to tho
State, the latter's share coining from tlie
tax on deposits of non-residents.
The auditor's books show a gratifying
decrease in the court expense-!. Tho
gross conrt expenses for the two years
ending July 31, 1878, were over $252,000;
for tho next two years over $221,000; and
for the last two about $160,000. The net
expense shows a still better result, as the
amount of fine and costs paid in has great
ly increasod. The present favorable
showing is fairly attributable to thrco
causes: A deorease in the business dono,
late legislation, and efficient mlminisl ra
tion of his office by Auditor Pownll.
Tresidont Arthur yesterday vetoed the
river and harbor appropriation bill. It
appropriated over cightoen millions of
dollars; six or seven millions more th an
last year and more than four times as
much as was appropriated por year a
dozen years ago. The president says' lie
greatly regrets the necessity of a veto as
many of tho appropriations are needed,
some of thorn indeed having been reoom
mended by him in his message last winter.
Hat there are bo many purely local enter
prises provided for that he determined to
pond the bill luck without bis approval.
It is uncertain whether it can be passed
ovor bis veto and certainly to be hoped
that it oannot. They say it needed lots of
back-bone to resist the pressure in favor
of, the bill tbat was brought to bear by
The public debt was reduoed nearly
fourteen millions last month.
The democrats of this district nominated
George L. Fletcher of Chester for congress
at their convention at Weils River Thurs
day. "Perley" telegraphed to the Boston
Journals, rumor that Senator Edmunds will
resign. There Is happily no foundation
for the story. The senator is at his home
in Burlington and because of domestio
alTliotlon will not return to Washington
tho proBent session unices bis presence
should be absolutely demanded.
Tbo Republican County Convention
which meet here next Saturday has im
portant work before it, since cbangos are
to be made In most or the oflioes. There
hat been general wish expressed that
the county return to the old custom of
changing bat one senator each term, and
Mr. Dillingham was freely spoken or for
re-election. But he declines to allow the
use or his name for another term. Mr.
Plumley, who it was supposed would have
strong support for a nomination, also takes
himself absolutely out of the field. This
leaves the present outlook in favor of
Judge Willard S. Martin, of PlainDcld,
and Mr. E. K. Jones, or North field.
Mr. Pitkin, who has served but one
term as State's Attorney, and whose unan
imous renominatlon was certain, not by
custom alone, but by regard for the best
good of the county, refuses to accept a re
nomination because of the demands of his
own professional business. For sheriff we
have heard no name canvassed except
tbat of Frank H. Atherton, or Duxbury.
Mr. Atherton made his mark as the officer
who ferreted out the Meaker murder, a
piece jof work that was but a sample or
his good service as an officer. It does not
appear now that there will be opposition
to the renominntion or Judge Tilden for
Judge of Probate. The mistaken custom
or changing one assistant judge every
term will of course again prevail. Mr. J.
M. Fisher, or Cabot, is most prominently
named as Judge Coburn's successor.
That Political Cyclone.
The readers or tho Walchmin atil State
Journal were given a pretty good dose in
the editorial entitled The "Political
Cyclone " last week, especially those who
supported Gen. Grout and Hon. W. P.
Dillingham at the district convention.
And to many fair-minded republicans.
even in this section, where Judge Poland
received the votes or a majority of the
delegates from this county, the article
referred to is not only unfair in its state
ments, but showed a lack of good common
sense. If the editor or that paper thinks
that any such article as that will in the
end be for the best interests or the repub
lican party in the second district, we think
ho will find that he mistakes tho views of
a large number of the intelligent republi
cans in the district.
A triumphant party can afford to be just,
and unless it Is it many times docs great
injustice to the defeated party and breeds
serious trouble, in tuo luiure. n ine
editor of tbat paper does not now control
tbo political editorials of the same, we
think the sooner ho doos it the hotter it
will bo for the interests of tho party.
When that Journal came out for the
nomination of Judge Poland for congress
from this district, we found no fault, as it
bad a right to support tho candidate thoy
thought best, and if it did work first and
last for such a result, it was not unexpect
ed. But when after the convention is over
they ooiue out and oall all tho good,
reliable republicans who supported Gon.
Grout from a principle which they consid
ered but just and right, under the existing
circumstances of his having but one term
inoongress, to give him one more term,
" disgruntled politicians " and " political
hucksters" and that class of names, when
many of the best and most intelligent re
publicans in thejdistrict, thought best to do a
fair and just thing, is showing to the
public a low grado of politics by the
triumphant party. The same nrtiole Bays
also " that it was a clear case of the
people as against the politicians." Now,
for one, and we have heard others say the
same, we would ask, who are the people?
Are not all good republicans of the district
the people whethor they are for Judge
Poland or Gen. Grout? And when tho
writer of that article comes to tell about
political cliques and the usurping of
power, it looks to the reader as though i)
comes in bad taste from a journal that has
worked early and late for tho nomination
of the successful candidate, and it is said
to be true by those bost posted that the
town of Montpelier was carried for Judge
Poland when it appears there is quite a
large majority of the republicans who
wore in favor of Gen. Grout's re nomina
tion. That it took work and political wire
pulling to accomplish such a result is
evident to those who saw it done. And to
say that a large amount of political work
was dono by tho writer of that article is
but telling the simple truth, and we hope
in the futnre that if the republicans who
seo fit to support the candidate thoy
think best, and it does not moot the
views of the Watclman, that said journal
will not write up tuoh caustic articles,
which show such narrow political views,
and apply such terms to those of the same
political faith who happen to differ with
iheiu In regard to candidates for office.

Washington, D. C, July 29. '82.
There are a great many people who
want the capital of the United States to
" go west and grow op with the country "
Thore aro olhort who insist that the
oapital should never be removed from
Washington's monumont and the Potomac
swamps. Disappointment will be the lot
of both classes, for tho east, north and
south would prefer tho present locus of
tbe capital rather than to surrender it to
their lusty western rival, and while
Washington cannot bo removed from the
swamps, the swamps are to bo removed
from Washington. Hallelujah! An appro
priation or nearly hair a million has been
mado for tbe reclamation or these swamps.
The plan is to transform these vast plains
or soggy vegetable putridity into smiling
lakes and parks. There is some fear that
the president will veto the bill, but it is
impossible to believe anything so mon
strous from a Christian. Leading mem
bers or the House say that they are confi
dent the bill will be signed The weight
of opinion is in favor of the bill beooming
a law, though those who say it will
be vetoed speak in very positive term,
and olaim to speak by authority. The
cabinet considered the bill at a meeting
held last wock, so if a veto was decided
upon the president will not have to await
the Friday meeting of tbe oablnet. It is
thonght his action on tho bill will be
known by to-morrow.
It seems to be generally conceded tbat
tbe removal of the internal revenue tax
reduction bill from the Senate, and the
river and harbor bill from both Houses
inoreases the chances of adjournment.
The senators and members who said last
week congress could adjourn by Monday,
next, said this afternoon that an adjourn
ment was still possible then, but not very
probable, on account of the unknown
amount or time that may be used up on
the naval appropriation bill, which proved
to be even more fruitful of dobate than
was expectod. There is but one opinion
in regard to the tax reduction proposition,
and that is that Sonator Back was correct
when he said the funeral sermons were
preached on it to-day. It goes over,
therefore, until next session.
Commsssioncr Raum reports to Secreta
ry Folger that the ontire collections of
internal revenue for the past fiscal year
have been accounted for and turned into
the troasury. Tho whole sum collected
was $110,520,273.71. During tho past six
years tho sum of $718,831,071 has been
collected from this souroo without loss by
dofaliation. Tho expense of collection for
tho past fisoal year will not exceed
$5,108,300, boing less than 3i per cont of
the whole. Tho combinations among illicit
distil lors in soino parts of tho country to
evajo the law havo boen broken np, and
tho rolations existing between the tnx
payors and the revenue officers are harmo,
Tho president will uiako a visit to Now
York city after the adjournment of con
gress. Ho will remain there about ten
days. Ho has mado no further arrange
ments for the summer. It is probable,
howover, that ho will make a trip along
the sea coast in the United States steamer
"Dispatch," which is now undergoing
repairs and improvements, and which is
expected to arrive in this city on the first
day of Aumist.
Tho prosecution in tho star rout oases
are muou encouraged with the appearance
of matters just now. It was said at tho
department of justico to-day that the
conviotion of some of the indioted parties
was almost certain.

We shall have a distinguished visitor
next month. Londoners nlways like a
popular pet, and now lhat Jumbo has gone
people have been sighing for a new favo
rite. They will no donbt mako a lion of
Celowayo, who next month is to visit our
shores, and, although wo havo to thank
lhat dusky monarch for the loss of a few
thousand English soldiers, wo feol confi
dent he will have a cordial reception.
For, after all, Cetewayo is a great man in
his way. The Zulu King was anything
but a dolt in the management of his savage
subjects, and by no means wanting, either
in tho capicity of a great general, without
anything to call either a civil, or a mili
tary, or naval establishment; nay, for the
matter of that, without schools, clergy,
judges, or even jurors without even a
wardrobe Cetewayo alter keeping a large
region of the British Empire in terror for
some years, inflicted upon us one of the
most terrible defeats in our recent history.
Keeping himself well informed of our
movements, he saw with a soldiers intui
tion tbe weak point and the happy mo
ment, and destroyed hair a regiment
beforo it could oven occupy its assigned
position. There is no person in this coun
try, from the lowest to tho highest, that
will not be bound to look on him with
exalted respect. Cetewayo would not
havo tolerated " obstruction " as our Par
liaments have done. Cetowayo would
havo .buried Arabi Pasha in the tombs of
the Pharoahs months ngo. The only
"Uest of the kind prisoner of war, we
suppose he must bo called to compare
with Irnu is Napoleon Bonaparte, who
exceeded Cetewayo in ins projects, it is

groat and populous nation laid at his scr
vice. Tho royal captivo most to compare
with liiin is that C.iractaous whom our
children love to read of, who by his noble

I had the pleasure to bo one of tho party
who accompanied tho French engineers
who with Wm. Lesseps paid a visit on
Saturday to tlie works of the Submarine

of over a mile. Wo were lowered six at

shaft, 163 foet, below the surface or the

had been traversed, tbo workmen drawing
the cars on tbe down grade at a fast walk
brought the party to the end of the boring,
1,900 yards from the shaft, and about 150
feet below the sea. At the luncheon Sir
E. Walkin alluded to the opposition of the
government to the scheme; but M. De
Lesseps ridionled the apprehension or in
security, whiob he bolieved was the cause
or the objection to the tunnel. He spoke
strongly in favor of the tunnel.
If last week closed with parliamentary
storms and Irish whirlwinds of debate
lasting nearly two days, and resulting in
the suspension or 16 mombert, the Prime
Minister seemed in no degree affected by
tho event. We saw him on Monday
morning going down to the House eager
for the fray, and on Tuesday when the
prevention or crime bill was considered It
was plain that the government would
"stand no nonsense," and in fact the bill
is being pushed to its conclusion with so
much determination that tbe Home Rulers
feel it is useless to oppose it. Tho news
of fresh crimes in Ireland only stimulate
the leaders of the liberal party in their
desire to have a legislative instrument of
sufficient power to check this terrible

and that we are recovering from the long
period of stagnation that weighed solieav

far as can be gathered at present, tbe year
bids fair to be more prosperous than any
we have had of late. No olher country at

to rival the United States with a surplus

A. L- Bailoy, Esq., of St. Johnsbury, but
to those who have not wo may state that
he is a doaler in pianos and organs, and a
steward or tho Methodist Episcopal church
in lhat thriving town. During tho past
several years he has also maintained a
branch store in Burlington, and is gener
ally known throughout Vermont as an
enterprising doaler, who by his agents
manages to reach the door and then tho
ear of about every purchasor of such
musical instruments, nnd to a large extent
to add their names to his list of oustomers.
On Tuesday last he sold to the president

third as his own personal gift to the Insti
tution. The presented piano is of tbe
make of Hallet & Davis, and is a " grand

We noed say no more to indicate tho
value of the gift to tho seminary, or tbe
practical benefits which will result from
Bro. Bailey's liberality. May his act of
generous holp be duly appreciated by all

being cut, so tbat no relief can be obtained,
save by cauterization of tho wholo mass.

Univorsal Christianity has become a ques

and nne-half times as much for missions
had been contributed as from tho landing

1880 two and one-half times as uiuoli as
all before, and by 1890 five times as much
as all given up to 1880 would be contri

Jumbo Takes a Bath. The Springfield
Republican says tbat the baby elephant
"Bridgeport" took her first bath and
"Jumbo" the first he has had in this coun
try, at Brattleboro. A deep and shady
pool in whetstone brook, conveniently
near tho circus tents, was chosen and
George W. Arstingstall presided at tho
ceremony. 1 be baby came down to tbe
water with a dainty, mincing motion,
dipped her toes into the drink, shivered,
partly withdrew, and then, urged by tbe
keeper's prod, plunged boldly in. Once
in sbo seemed to enjoy the wetting and
swam about, squirting jets or water with
hor tiny trunk and giving shrill grunts of
satisfaction. "Jumbo" appeared later and
entered the bath hardly less suspiciously.
When the first was over, however, he
dived in head foremost, raised tbe general
level ot the pool several inches and send
ing the waves rolling up against the bank.
He cavorted around, threw a stream of
water into tbe air with his trunk, and
then settled down into bis bath till only
the top of bis head and tho ridge of bis
back were seen. As he rose, the water
rolled from bis sides like casoidos trick
ling over a rocky bed. In the evening
the rest or the elephants were given a
bath, and for a few moments the stream
presented the appearance of a pool in nn
East Indian jungle with a hoid of wild
elephants at play.

The Springfield Republican savs: A
distiller ut Peoria, III,, named Gersh
Martin has expressed himsolf about tho
rum buisness in a way that is decidedly
refreshing. In tho first place ho observes
tbat there is less whisky consumed in the
country now than 30 years ngo when the
population was but half as great, and tbe
falling off he charges ohiefly to lager beer.
Again, tho farmers, who used to be tbe
largest consumers, are now Ihe smallest.
They used to buy whisky by the barrel
chcapor than city people can now get
cider, but to-day they get it by the jugful
or not at all. Thirty years ngo nine farm
ers in ten would have voted against
prohibition, but now nine in ten would
vote for it. The whisky trade ought not
to fight the temperance people openly, but
should go on with its business quietly,
kcop within the law, and seek to concili
ate. "The moral and religious sentiment
or America is against it," and stands like
a stone wall to confront it, and it must go
on quietly if at all. Let a financial col
lapse of tbe distilling interest come now,
or in the near future, and no one would
ever again venture to put money Into it,
with the temperance sentiment rampant
and no oapital to fight it prohibition oonld
be enforced, "and in 10 years there would
not be left a distillery, a brewery or a sa
loon in the whole United Stales." Mar
tin has boon making whisky for many
years and all his property is invested In
tho buisness, so that his talk will make
a raro bit of smmunition for the prohibitionists.
The Cirrus and Jumbo,
or Hiia irreat show, to be here on Thurs
day. August 10. the Boston Daily Travell
er speaks: Mr. Barnum himself bath
said it; namely, that this is the greatest
effort of his life, and tnat be has produced
the greatest show on earth. Perhaps it
should be said tbe greatest shows; for
there are at least half a dozen features
about this big concern which would by
themselves prove meritorious and auraoi
ive entertainments. Such, for example,
in Jumbo, who alone would draw a crowd.

or Messrs. Barnum's Bailey & Hutchin

is very oondoscending. He extends his
trunk affably towards yon for a bun or
apple or even a peanut, which lie tucks
away in tho aperture nnder bis nose,
called a mouth, continually. He is very
industrious in his way, never ceasing the
movement of his food conveyor so long
as there is anvtbing in sight to reach
after. In this way went biscuits, apples.
candy, etc., proffered by boys and bonevo
lont elderly gentlemen in countless num
bers during yesterday afternoon, and when
there was the least lull in tbe lollipops
tbe enormous glutton began upon the
straw and hay at bis feet. To the party
or newspaper men who on their rounds
with the cicerone of tho show, were
admitted within the robe paling. Jumbo
extended his trnnk with uncommon alac
rity, as though expeoting to be furnished
with something more stimulating than
lollipop. At all events, be searched tho
side pockets of several who wore the pale
tot oot, with light fingered adroitness.
Among other things not greatly lo his
credit, Jum has the reputation of being
an incorrigible thiof. One gontlemeo
who had bought a pint or more of pea
nuts and placed them in his pocket turned
just in time to seo tbem going down the
mammoths tnroai cavern, paper Dag ami
all. It was nuite diverting to see him wink
or close bis eyes on tbe reception in his
tooth of a sweetmeat or tne line, no ap
peared to he in a sort of ecstacy at such
times.and ready to announoo his gratitude
if possible, aftor tho manner ot unarios
Dickens when first imbibing a sherry cob
bler in this country. In truth. Jumbo is
not only a glutton, but a voluptuary, piy
ing mnch attention to tbe continual titra
tion ol bis palate.
Whatever truth thore may or may not
be in rolation to bis drinking habits, he
was perfectly sober.and behaved in a dig
nified thoiinb ponderous manner. Tho
circus porformanoes, which began at 2
o'clock prccisoly, wore opened by a grand
procession around the courso, which en
circles the three performing, ring3 nf ele
phants, thorougnbred led horses, chariots,
and a eavalcado of gorgeously costumea
ladies and gentlemen, all linoly mounted.
First camo the baud, marchinz on foot, fol
lowed by tho cavalcade, and then the
elephants. Tho foremost of tho latter was
little " Uridgcport," some tnreo months
old only, followedby his mother.-'Q leen,"
who was in turn followod by Jumbo.
Bridgeport walked forward, with a quick,
bustling sort of a stop, which strongly re
minded one of a busy politician or man of
affairs at a convention, yuecn was more
reserved; while Jumbo took about one
stride to the others' two or three ir keep,
ing up with the processsion. Tho circus
performance was much liko that of last
year by Mr. Bvnum's company, though
more extensive in the number oi aois.
Among others may be mentioned the
Roman catapult which hurls a man one
hundred and fifty feet through the air to
bo caught by a netting in his fall; the wo
man lire I from tho cannon; the splendid
riding of Mine. Dockrill; the graceful
tight rope walking and dancing of Miss
Eva Walker, tbe fearless acrobalic doings,
the hurdlo and chariot races, and others.
Vermont Antiquities In Swanton,
30 years ago, a workman discovered a
piece of ancient looking lead which, hav
ing something peculiar about its appear
ance, he examined it closer and found It
to be hollow, and out of this hollow he
pulled a piece of coarse paper, yellow with
age, and on this was writing in very old
English of which tbe following is the rend
ing: Nov. 29, A.D. 1561.
This is the solemn day. I must now die.
This is the 99th day. since we left the ship

posterity know our end. JonN Grave.
What ship? whenco come? whithor

one would like to ask John Graye. Per
haps he is a myth, after all, and the wholo
business a hoax, but there is tbe writing,
and tbe account, in the Vermont state
cabinet at Montpelier. And hero is anoth
er circumstance. In 1872 a man mamed
Garfield cut a hemlock tree in Sheffield,
Vt., which bore a well defined axe mark
over which 256 annual rings bad crown.
Now the axe must have struck into that
tree in 1615, four years before the May
dower brought the Pilgrims over and
only seven years alter Chnmplain sailed
up the Richelieu. Who swung that axe?
