Tho work of the session tbus far has

of per.-on- aml making tbein sole beirs of

thing of inaking adopted cbildren heirs-at-law,
by legislative siuctiou is simply
absurd. If tbere were uo other way to
aceomiilish the resiilt we migbt be in
duced to think it paiil. liut the probatc
court hns control in sucb niattcr.s as well
a- the legislature. liut it eosts some two

Sjme ot the nble.-t meu iu tbe housi

thc fanners went dead again-l it.
The sbarpe-t di.-cus-ion of the session
took place Thursday. on the pie-tion of
tbe pas-age of an "act lor tbe ailvauce-
ment of tbe seicm-e of medicine and siir
gery." The bill provides that when a
person is cxeenteil for uiurder the sberill
may deliver tlie body of the person so
executed to tho ilulv uutborized anent of
any medit-.il -ehoul applying for the same.
Il'any relative, boivever appiies for tbe
body w'.thin twenty-four hours after ex-
eculion it must be delivered to him
The bill was stoutly opposed 011 the
ground of its barbarity the opponents of
the .-ame alleging that by death the crini-
iual expiales all bis erime, and tbat
iiirn ought to give the body of tbe poor
miserable nian a decent burial, and not
eonsign it to doctors and tbeir students
to liack and niangle. Tlie bill has pass

Tbere was a great pressure on the
governor to induce him to drop nearly
all the old board, against whom many
i'riends of the lato secretary have a piyut.
15ut he has retaincd llie working men,
and has added new men of such capacily

board.
A novcl 'question has nrisen on whieh
thc-re is a variety of opinion. Messrs.
French and 1'aul of Windsor county,
during the summer tenn of tho court in
that county, were appointcd counsel to
defend Iliram Miller who was charged
with the crimc of murder. Miller was
very poor and bad nothing to pay his at
torneys. The trial, wbich resulted in
tho convictiou of Miller, lasted scven
days, and was ably couducted by tho
Messrs. French and l'aul. They now
ask the state to pay thcm for tbeir servi
ces very modestly leaving it to the lcg-i-lature
to set tho price. 15ut the housc
have docided that tbeir claim is not a
lcgal one again-t tho state. I do not say
tbere is a legal li.vbility rcsting upon tho
state to pay these men ; but it is virtu-
ally saying tbe laborcr is not wortby of
his bire. These attorneys could not re
fuse to defend tbe poor wretcb, without
contenipt of court. As the constitution
of Vermont, part first, scction 10, pro
vides that every person accused of a
crime "has a right to be beard by bim-
elf and counsel," I can hardly hec how
the dcfendin'r attorneys can bo justly de-
privcd of tbeir pay in this case.
A bill has been introduccd inaking
provisions in regard to drains, Biinihir to
those now in force in regard to fenccs.
It passage is doubtful. Another bill
makes fcixty-four pounds a busbel of
beans. Small dealers iu the articlc will
take nolice. The committee 011 ways
and means reported a bill on Saturday
iissessing a tax of40 cents for the sup-
port of government. Tho appropriations
are as follows :
."50,000 for tho debenturcsof thc lieut.
governor and tbe legislature and the cou
tingcnt cxpen.scs of thc general assembly.
82.50,000 for paying cla'uus ngainst
tho state liillowed by the auditor of nc
counts and by county clerks.
$7 ,."500 for the contingcnt expenses of
the executive and treasury departments.
70,000 to pay tho interest on the
bomls and dcbt of tbe state.
Not exceeding 10,000 for the foform
-ehool. Not exceeding 100,000 to
wards paying the principal of the bonds
ol tbe state.
The bill discounts -1 par cent on all
state taxes paid befure tbe 1st of Febru
nry. Also authorizes, tho state treasurer
to borrow not exceeding 200,000 at in- 1
teiv-t not uxeooding 7 K-10 per cent.
The bill was read and ordered to lie
and be priuted.
Tbe svnate are sipiabbling over the
bill to compel parents to send tbeir cbil

county is one of its -trongest opponents.
The light iu regard to granting a charter

Anotbei bill before the house increaiies

He is an inimitable nian in his spbere,

Kev. Dr. Irwin lrom Louisiaua Iectured

Inciilents of Elections.
Among the many funny things of the
election of tho 3d iiist., we noticed u
writtcn tieket whicb not only bears
niarks of genius but avvfully black re
publican principles. Tho nian who
bore it must have taken lessons of Wen
dell I'hillips. It read tbus :
"Genuine Kepublican Ticket.
Colfax and Uoutvvell. For electors of
prcsidcnt and vicc prwident of the U. S
A.
l'aul DiHingbam,
Horace I'airbanks,
II. 15. Cushing,
E. F. 15rovvn,
A. 15. 15ullard."
Another ticket bearing the namcs of
Grant and Colfax was endorsed as fol
lows : "Fearing Soyuiour, if elected,
would be controlled by southcrn rebels,
and believing C5 rant will tirnily main
taiu democmtic principles, and not be
controlled by such radicals as 15utler,
Sumncr & Co., I considcr it my duty to
voto this ticket.

tbe raising of 00,000 Stafe Militia, or
enough to kcep tbe Ivu-lvlux Ivlan in
ubjection until the cxpiration of rrcsi-
dent Johnson's term of olRce.
Mayor Hoffman "feels his oats" over
his election. He already assumes to ad-
viso Gen. Grant upon his policy. He
says that if he pursues a eertain policy,
distastcful to Democrats, "hc will fall
never to riso again."

upon us nn abunlant measure of healtb,
granting us pkntiful harvcsts as the re
ward of the labors of thc hmbandman,
and continuing unto us the incstimable
blessings of civil and religious liberty.
Most of nll, should we ever render
fresb thanksgivings, for the gift of gracs
and the hopo of Ileaven, reTealed unto
us through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Let us not forget "the futherless and
the widow," that they may "eat and be

a Democratic strongbold bitberto nnd in
tbe course of it be turned to good nccount
tbe parable of tho "prodigal son," whicb
tho other sido have been using go extcn
sively to illustrate the return of tho
South to the Union :
He insisted that there was no parallel
bctween the prodigal son's dcparture and
return, and tht of thc States that wcnt
into rebellion. He ilid not run avvay.

portion, went avvay, fell into bad com-
pany,"it might havo been the Ddtnoeratic
party, spent all his substance in tiotoirs
living," and liecoming very hungry from
his reduced circumstanccs, returned humo
in nn huinblc and contrite condition,
acknowledging he bad made a mistake,
nnd a-kimi tbe. least possiblo favors nt

The icast that followed, and tbe

Thc 15oston l'ost bas a Washington
telegram saying that many predict the
iiupeachment of Grant by tbe radicals
in less than twclve montbs from the date
of his iuaugiiration. If tbere sbould be
an attcmpt of the sort it will be by lut
ler and his followers, aided by tbe dem
ocrats, who nssisted in his election tbat
they might make use of him to divide

Tbe tone of tbe Southern press is
