The Off Year.
There is no reason why folks should not
coino out and vote this year as well as
another. Bat we presume the election
returns for next Tuesday will show thai
(Jen. Barstow has not received anywhere
near the full republican vote and that a
great many of Mr. Eaton's democratic
friends stayed at home,
The two parties in Vermont have both
put up good square tickets, and as long at
we have a government of tho people it
ought to justify its name. It is by indif
ference manifested in whatever manner
that a great many of the evils that folks
complain of on the part of their chosen
rulers come about.
Both republicans and democrats should
have the courage of their convictions and
lake the trouble to voice those convictions
at tho polls, whether the year is a presi
dential one or the "off year" as it is called
It is not the province of a republican
newspaper to exhort democrats very
much, and it wonld be the last thing we
should think of doing to urge anybody to
keep up the bad habit of being a democrat.
But if ne is a democrat he ought to vote
all the samo.
And so if a man is a republican he
oubt to be enough of a man to come out
once in two years and do bis political
duty. It is not going to make any great
difference in politics whothor Gen. Bars-
tow geU 15,000 majority or the 25,000 that
fco is rightfully entitled to on a full ax-
jiression of opinion. But it doei look
hotter fpr the citizenship of a stito to see
those who have its privileges exercising
For once we should be glad to see Ver
monters tnrning out in goodly numbers
auJ, on freemen's meeting day, showing
that government by the people is a thing
l i iey take some pride in and think of valu
naougb to them so that they can afford to
ivo a part of a day once in two years to
.-how that they appreciate it.
Years ago, living in a community made
up largely of poople who had come across
t!:e Atlantic, we found they wcio always
on hand election day. The right to have
a voice in choosing their rulers was a new
thin to tbem, and they wcro not inclined
to neglect its exercise. It would be belter
fur the country if in the minds of none age
were not allowed to withor nor custom
Mule the dKty of voting.

The Equallilio Board.
The representatives of the several co in-
ties finished their business last week in
the equalizing board and went home.
This county and Orange ware recused five
per cent, and Caledonia raised two and
Windsor five per cent. Other counties
were lek as they wore, or tinkered to snit
the interests of themselves or somebody
The board also proceeded to tinker
about the listing of railroad property, a
tnattir that they had no call whatever to
meddle with and after they bad got
through the members went home.
Composed in great part of really sens!
bio men the board of equalization is
collectively a big humbug. Its members
are hampered by the knowledge that each
is considered the agent of his county for
making as good a trade for his connty as
can possibly be made.
For instance Mr. Chapin of this county
got a reduotion of five per cent from its
list, and we have not the remotest idea
that Mr. Chapin thought the valuation of
this county was intrinsically too high. It
was true enough that compared with other
counties itonght to be reduced but what
ought to have been done was the bringing
up of counties that had been appraised too
low instead of outting down those where
a correot appraisal was made.
There is a determination that the present
tax law in substance shall stand. Now it
is based on sworn statements o( taxpayers
and sworn action of listers. The law, to
be permanent, must be lived up to and
listers live up to their oaths. There must
he likeness between the real value and
the appraised value, and once more wi
say that the great danger to this law is
from under-valuation on the part of those
who execute it. Whothor the present
disgraceful "swap de boss" business is
really a necessary part of our equalization
system is questionable. If it is the system
ought to be abolished.
Editor Freeman : A claim is made oc
casionally in the several state papers that
our roads are not kept np or In as good
condition since the towns were relieved
from liability, and angry threats are made
for the repeal of the law. Cases are cited
where roads are bad and the traveler is
liable to accident, which is no doubt truo
Accidents will happen. There are hun
dreds of miles of road in this state where
if a horse is driven or allowed to go out of
the beaten path, it is almost certain death
for both horse and driver, and it has al
ways been so. It is impossible to protect
the roads so that roaming horses or care
less driver cannot meet; but the charge
that the towns are not as careful to keep
the roads in good condition as formerly is
not true. I have been familiar with many
ol the roads of Vermont for the past thirty
years and have never seen them in as
good condition as they are this season,
and so far from the several towns being
lax in tho cause of tho public roads they
are almost unanimously taking better
care of tho roads than ever before, and
making larger outlays. That taxpayers,
after being assessed willingly to provide1
good highways should be further liable
for the accident and carelessness of the
many who frequent or travel on them, is
most urgent. We believe that the law as
it is meets Iho approval of a very large
majority of the citizens of tho state.
A bolting republican convention was
hold in Orleans county yesterday It was
directed mainly against one of the candi
dates for senator.
Tho bolting republicans in Addison
county have put up Mr. Wicker of Ferris
burgh against C. W. Reed one of the
regular candidates for senator. This was
the only nomination made by the bolters.
The bolting republicans in Caledouia
county on Monday nominated Frank M.
Page for state's attorney; Isaac M. Smith
for sheriff and Harry S. Wright for high
u ailiff. Tho rest of the ticket is the same
as tho regular ticket; but there is to be a
livoly contest over judge of probate also,
for though Henry French lias tho regular
republican nomination and that of ihe
bolting temperance republicans, Walter 1'
Smith is.running as an independent can
didate and is strorgly supported.
Tho independents will have congres

Our European Letter.
Lonixjn, Exo., Anglotb, 1882
Mr. Gladstone has obtained "the sinews
of war" that Is, the cash and the cam.
paign will now bs carried on with spirit
and determination. Mr. Gladstone did
not have mnch trouble to convince the
House on Thursday night of the necessity
to act as wo are doing, for In the division
on the vote of credit thore were only 19
opposed to 245 members. The sum asked
for was two millions three hundred thous
and pounds, which, after a discussion
with sir Garnot Wolscley and other m Hi
lary authorities, is considered to be the
sum required for a three months' expedi-
dition. It is quite impossible to foreseo
what difficulties may have to be faced ore
tho British troops return from the Nile.
People on tho outbreak of the Indian
meeting thought a few days would sup
press it, yet what a gigantio effort we had
to make before it ended. It must not be
forgotten that tho Egyptian revolt has
been brewing for nearly two years, and
I do not imagine for a moment that the
government oould have been ignorant of
what was likely to take place. As England
did right in making the (rhedive the ruler
of Egypt, so she shall do right in support
ing his authority and in upholding his pow
er. The greatest risk is in the chance of
having to engage in a sort of guerilla war
fare. But even in that event ordor will
ultimately be restored, and prosperity in
Egypt when a firm hold of the principal
cities has been secured. It seems strange
that something more is not done for the
protection and pacification of Cairo. This
will probably recoive attention when we
have a greater force to spare.
The letter of Admiral Seymour to the
rhedive explains the actual intentions of
the English government, and warns his
highness to advise the soldiers not to listen
to the commands of Arabi. The suggest
ions of the admiral are given with the
directness we might oxpoct from such
a gallant commander. The few simple
and straightforward sentences of Sir Beau
champ Seymour are more to the purpose
than a cartload of diplomatic meaning.
He says: "I, as admiral In command of
the British ships, think it right at onco to
repeat to your highness that the British
government has no intention of conquer
ing Egypt for itself, nor of interfering in
any way with the religion or liberties of
the Egyptians. Its only object islo protect
your highness and the people of Egypt
against rebels. The British government
is duteruiinod to suppress the rebellion
against your highness, and to restore
ordor in the country by relieving it of the
oppression exercised by rebol officers.
I beg that your highness will, as an act of
kindness, warn the soldiers not to obey
rebel commanders, but to return to their
homes or to your highness as their sover
eign; and tho British government being
well disposed towards the people of Egypt,
advises them to regard the rebel Arabi and
his accomplices as traitors to their sover
eign and enemies to themsolvos and their
Goodwcol raco was favored by the
weather, and on Thursday thero was
brilliant sport on that delightful course.
The sun was bright, but not too scorching,
tho wind was fresh, but not boisterous,
tho roads in splendid condition, and the
course itself everything that could be
wished for. Thero was a wonderful attend
ance, not only from London, but from
every town and village all along tho coast.
Of course the prince and princess of Wales
were present, and right glad everybody
was to see them. It was truly a day of
exquisite enjoyment. Nobody thought
about war in Ejryp!, or tho incraaso of the
income tax; but all entered into tho spirit
of recroatiou with a zest enhanced by the
beauty of the day, tho loveliness of the
place, and the excellence of the company.
The princess, in a costume of cream color
and gold, looked extremely weil, and evi
dently enjoyed herself. The Duke of Ham
ilton was tho roseiver of the gold cup, also
the Goodwin Corinthian plate. Parliament
is pushing on with such measures as are
likely to be passed this session. Wo nro

immense good. The regents carnal rail

On Monday, the 21st, the camp ground
was made busy with active preparations.

The Plainfield society have also erected a
large tent, cloth covered, upon tho ground
formerly occupied by the Eethol tent, and
near the lower watering tub. This enter
prise is also nnder the direction of the pas
tor, and Bro. G. E. Smith has put many
bard days' work into the effort to secure
this opportunity of a homo on tho camp
ground for his people.
The public exercises commenced with a
service at tho stand on Monday evening.
Bro. II. A. Spencer directing the service
and making the prayer of Asa, as recorded
in 2d Chronicles 14: 2, the basis of hia dis
course. Several of the preachers followed
in earnest exhortation, and the tone of the
meeting was inspiriting to all. About a
hundred or more were in this first assem
bly of the people, and the number upon
the ground was increased by arrivals dur
ing the evening.
The services on Tuesday wore at the

Worcester being the preacher of the word.
His text was in Romans 5:3, 4 & 5. At
1 p. M. the moeting of the stewards of
Montpelier district was held in the Barre
bouse, and the estimate of the presiding
elder's salary was placed at $1,200 and a
donation. This advance on the salary of
the past four years was agreed upon by
the stewards after learning of the circum
stances under which Bra. Spencer came
upon the district, and of his unsolicited
removal from his former charge of Spring
field district, and was, we understand
nnanimously voted. It is the right thing
to do, we believe, aud the district will
cheerfully ratify the action of the stewards.
At 2 P. M. the sermon was by Rev. W. II.

who is now supplying at Enosburg, Vt ,

Tho above mere outline of tho rccnt
iogs will bo filled in by our readers who
are familar with such gatherings, with
an understanding of Iho social meetings
in the varlons socioly tents and housM,
which, as usual, were generally well at
tended and of an impressive character.
We think that the attendance during
tho week was not so largo as usual, which
fact is easily accounted for by tho harvest
season now In its prime, and by the gen
eral deferring of attendance until tho
Sabbath. On this day thero was, as usual
on Sunilay, a great and surging crowd ,
who, like tho ancient historic porsonno
"came, and saw and conquered." "
The decision to bavo no Sunday mooting
noxt year is vory satisfactory to the friends
of tho meeting who dosiro for it the bost
spiritual rosults and tho least harmful
tendencies. As might bo expected, thero
woro some manifestations of dissatisfac
tion nt thu course of events, but as we
anticipated in our criticisms of the board
of manager when they mado the ap
pointment of the Sunilay meeting, the
association vindicated oar prophecy and
removed all opportunity for a further
misunderstanding cf it preferences In

The follewins brief but interesting auto
biography of the late Senator Hill was
written and given bv him to his friend,
the late Dr. W. II. While, in 1879, and
it was found among bis papers :
"1 was born in Jasper county, Urorgia,
September 14th, 1823. I was the seventh
of nine children, and the filth of six
brothers. My father was a small farmer.
owning a few slaves only. All his sons,
therefore, did all farm work, and all his
daughters did all household work- My
mother cut and made the clothos we wore,
and most of tbem were spun and wove on
tho plantation. I worked on the farm
from the time I was eight years old, and
black and white came and went alike in
all work. My father was a man of
common education, but was extensively
read and of great influence in hia neigh
borhood. When I was ten years old (in
1830) my father moved to the county of
Troup, a new connty, and his lands were
well in the woods, and I helped clear
them, I walked the entire distance from
the old lo the new home, over 100 ruilep,
helping to drive the cattle.
My father would always have a school
house, a church, and a temperance society
near his house. He wag always trustee
of the school, class leader and Stewart in
the church, and president of the temper
ance society. Some of my earliest and
sweetest recollections are connected with
these institutions and ray father's zeal in
thenit The black people always attended
church with the whites: and all of ns,
black and white, were encouraged to be
come members at very early ages. The
rule for the children was to work on the
farm until the crop was made and then
go to school nntil it was gathered. After
the crop was gathered, go to school again
until planting time for another crop.
This was my life nntil I was sixteen
years old. I was then continuod at school
at the time with a view to a collegiate
education. My father was not able to
send all his ohildren to collego; only one
besides myself desired a college course,
and I alone graduated. After I was pro
nounced prepared to enter college my
father decided be was not able to send
me. A family consultation was held.
My mother insisted on my going. She
bad always bad what she called her
"patch" which was near tho house, and
was cultivated by ber bouse bands when
not needed at housework, This patch
bad always been my mother's pin money,
amounting from $50 to $100. My mother
said she would contribute this to my
college expenses, and would mnko my
clothos at home besides.
An aunt of my mother's who lived in a
small houso in my father.s yard, and had
some means (small) and no children,
aareed to contribute as much more : my
father agreed to add the balance, and I
promised that all my college expenses
should not exceed $300 per annum. I prom
ised my mother that I would take the
first houor in my class, I redeemed this
promise. The proudest daj of all my life
was when I wrote to my parents that I
had taken the brst honor in my class and
all the honors of the literary society of
which 1 was a member.
The cook, Maria, came by my mother,
and was near ber age. She also raised
nine children just Ihe number my moth
er raised. One of the cook's children
was assigned to one of my mother's
children. From our childhood we played
together, worked together, and would
tight for each other against all the world.
Stronger ties than these were never
formed. It was an alliance offensive and
defonsive. I married in li45. My wife
had seven slaves large and small, li ft her
by her father, who diod when she was an
infant. Thus we began life with eight
slaves. When my father and mother
died tho slaves selected their owner
among the children, and I had to take
two more, who would go with no other
child, and paid for them.
My wife had one other brother left an
orphan with her. He married several
years after we did, and determined not to
keep his slaves. They were not willing
to go out of tho family and I bought thom.
I now had fourteen slaves. 1 was a pro
fessional man living in town and did not
need thom. I was not willing to hire
them out. Tho result was I bought some
land near the town and moved on it with
tho slaves and told tbem to support them
selves under my protection. The slaves
increased and married wives and husbands,
and raised children, and to keep them
together I bought them all. I also bought
several others who had to be sold, and
who selected me ns their owner. In a lew
years my small place was insufficient for
tbem, and rather than part with them
I bought a larger plantation in the county
and placed them on it, and removed with
my family back to town. I was thus
a slaveholder from 1845 to 1S65' just twen
ty years. My slaves increased from eight
to sixlyiseven. and during all that time
thero wcro but two deaths among thom,
and all of tbem will testify that 1 cared
better for them than they have been able
to care for themselves since freedom
The Estey organ company have provid
ed a powerful and a vory excellent instru
ment which is to be played by Al rs. O. D.
Clapp, and the singing will bo assisted by
a cornet played by Mr. Chapman of Bethel.
A good authority says that tho M. E.
church, on an average, organizes ten now
Snnday schools, dedicates fourteen new
churches and adds two new parsonages
each week during the year
Rov. O. D. Clapp is now at Northfield
and at present upon the camp ground.
His condition is decidedly improved, and
he is now confident that tho good Lord is
restoring him to ongago in further active
sorvice in the ministry. We are glad to
record, as our readers will all he glad to
read, that both in physical ami spiritual
condition this dear brother is prospering
as he has not before for a long lime.
Thoso colored peopla who within the
past three years have gone out into Kan
sas and attempted to build up homes for
themselves there, are finding Jordan a
more than proverbially hard road to travel.
Thero are, it is estimated, fifty thousand of
them, and at loast ten thousand are in
various stages of destitution, many of tbem
actually starving. In one country more
than two hundred families are living in
"dug-outf," and living on nn innutritious
diet ol 'corn broad, water and greens."
Tho country poor houses are not avail
able for thoso people. Tho Freedmon's
Relief Association appeals for aid. It is
nnnounced that $100,000 is needed to place
these frcedmon in acondition.ofsolfsupport.
Much suffering is anticipated during the
coming wintor, and it is hoped the great
American people will promptly draw its
wallet to avert it.
Senator Edmunds on Politics. In
rosponse to a letter of inquiry recently
written to Senator Edmunds, by a young
lawyer, asking for information as to what
wore the best political works from which
to gain a thorough knowledge of both
parties, tho senator says: "Tho debates
and journals of tho two houses of congress
will show yu better than anything else,
the state of partios in this country and
what are tho real points of difference,
i'rom 1854 down lo the present time they
show what has been done, and what has
been resisted. One who reads all this
and it is a groat labor to do it, will not
fail I think to seo where his path lies.
But no ono in this present world of ours
must expect anything like porfoction in
any government, or in any party. We
can only wisely try to gat the best attain
able tilings done, and roust expect that
the best party will fall shu t of what tt
ought to bo."

Rev. Peter Merrill, and taken from the
Concord (N. H.) Monitor. Bro. Merrill
was not aware when ho met a former

and tho inaccuracies are the fault of the
reporter. They aro not of material im

that thoso who observe them havo no
occasion to suppose that tho subject of the
sketch misstated any facts for the sako of
Iho lexas Chritiim Adcoente says it
so well, aud it fits so many outsido of that
stato, that we copy the followinz: "A
member of the church declined to take
his church paper. Ho was afterward in
quiring when tho life ' of Jesse James
would be published. Ho was anxious to
procure a oopy. The older children sol-
dom go to church and take no interest D
the Sunday school. The stewards do not
rely very strongly on his aid, and the pas
tor looks in other directions when he needs
assistance in protracted meetings. A
man who will place the sensational life of
a desperado in reach of his children and
withold religious literature may prepare
himself for very serious consequences."
Gen. Booth of the Sebastian army was
converted when 15 years of age and was
for many years aJMethodist minister. A
writer in tho New York Independent says
that the years spent as a Methodist minis
ter gave him the training which fitted him
for bis present work, and that, with the
exception of his Qunkerislic views of the
sacraments, his creed is largely Method -
istlc. Mr. Booth is absoluto in his gov
ernment of the army, holds in bis hands
all the property, tho income of which is
estimated at noarly $300,000 a year, con
trols with alwolute authority 15,393 evan
gelists and 645 paid officers, and bas
charge of all publications, the official
Gazette having a subscription list of
$250,000. The Sebastian army makes a
speciality of working among tho lower
classes. Gon. Booth.saying of his mission,

Dr. J. M. Buckley, of tho N. Y. CArts
lain Advoaile, is becoming somewhat pess
imistic In his views ns is evidenced by
some of his recent utterances. In the
Advocate issno of August 3d, he reviews
Dr. Storr's oration at Woodstock, Conn.,
on "The Moral Life of the Nation." In
this review he admits tho full force of all
tuo uangers mcu ur. s. says menace
our nation but fails to see the power of the
counteracting forces which were presented
as being able to onset or overcome these
dangers. He says," We do not see that
attachment to home, in tho sense whioh
can sustain moral life, is increasing; the
press executes a divided influence; tho re
gard for the established anthority of law
seem to us to bo diminishing every year."
When the Egyptian trouble began Dr.
Buckley prophesied very serious conse
quences and in tho Issuo of August 10th
he says that events now justify the proph
ecy, and that thero is far more of darkness
than of light in tho present situation." In
tho issue of August 17th, in an editorial
loader, ho says that "Congregationalism
is being honey combed with heresy" and
that the line drawn by the Congregation-
alisl betwoen evangelical Christianity and
Unitarianlsm and Univcrsalism is a line
drawn through, and not around, Congre
gationalism." In tho same issue, in a
review of ono of Dr. I.ulhor M. Loc's
works, ho says of his, "Lee on Universal
Ism, compared with tho miserable twaddle
that some of the theologioal goslings of
the present day aro uttering, it is as the
granite rocks compared with bubbles."
In the same article he says Dr. Lee camo
o Boston to "satinizo effectually the ab
surd transcendentalism of A. Bronson Al
colt, who still lives to utter the same
sentiments with tho garrulity of incipient
dotage, which he flung into tho faces of
reformers forty years ago."
