THE SAN JUAN AWARD.
Tho Alabama claims . have engrossed so
much attention that many pcoplo had for-
gotten that wo had another matter at issuo
with our dear " mother country," until tho
cable informed us it was settled by an award
in faycr of tho Great ltcpttblie. If anybody
cares to know what is gained by this award,
let him tako the map of North America and
look for Vancouver's Island, on the uuvth
west coast. Under, tho A&hburton treaty
with England it was provided that tho
boundary lino between tho United Slates and
the British Possessions should continue on
tho forty-ninth parallel to the middle of the
channel which separates the continent from
Vancouver's Island, and thenco southerly
through the middle of said channel and of
Fuoa Jtraits, to tho Pacific Ocean. Tho
negotiators of tho treaty assumed that thcro
was but ono channel. It was discovered
afterwards, however, that the space between
Vancouver and tho main land embraced scv.
cral chanucls and several islands, of which
San Juan is tho largest.
Tho UritUh Government claimed that tho
channel meant by the Treaty was that of tho
Itosario Strait, which lies next to the conti
ncnt. The American Government claimed
on the other hand, that tho Canal do Haro,
nearest to Vancouver, was tho dividing cban-
nel. When tho Treaty of Washington was
negotiated, it was provided that this qucs
tion should be referred to the arbitration of
tho Emperor of Germany. And now, after
taking tho judgment of his law officers, ho
renders his decision sustaining our claim,
and giving us tho island of San Juan.

We are glad to notice tho rebuilding and
near completion of llio Middlcbury paper
mill, which was burned homo six mouth ago.
This mill .has for its principal owner tho

Our readers aro all awaro that tho con
test for tho nomination to Congress In our
district terminated on the 2!id inst. in tho
nomination of Judgo Poland,
Such being tho case, and Judgo Stcolo
himself, at tho Convention, publioly an
nounced that ho submitted to the dcoision of
that body, it would bo inappropriate for tis

iu gtvo luriucr laiua niucu wo nuvu iu . uur i (
possession with rofcrcnejto tho two cnndi-
uaics auu mo mcinous in wuiou iuoy navu
conducted thoir canvass. Whllo our convic
tion tins nlwnys bcCn that the people,
if thoir votes wero cast freely and without
pressure, would elect J udgo Steelo by a largo
majority, and whilo wo still entertain pre
cisely tho same belief, notwithstanding tho
npparcut majority in tho convention whioh
tho corrupt caucus svstem lias given Judge
Poland, still our party custom is such that
our candidate rightly said : "I submit to tho
adverse decision of tho convention, just ns I
should have expectrd- my opponent to sub'
init, had llio decision been in my favor."
Tho system of caucuses and conventions
docs well enough when thcro is no contest
and all aro agreed, but iu a disputed caso
this system gives tho people no opportunity
to express their wishes at tio polls. Ono of
th'J candidates is out of tho way beforo tho
election comes. In tho present instance
many caucuses, somo in towns of moro than
300 republican voters, have had less than
forty persons present. In such cases, tho
few who attend tho caucus control tho multi
tudo who stay away. Hut bad as this mcth
od nlways is, and un.iatisfactory as it is in
tho present case, still it is the established
method of j arty discipline, and is regarded
as binding upon ludgo Steele.
JJut however binding tho coflvcnlion may
bo upon tho candidates, neither they nor the
convention can bind tho consciences of Vcr
mont voters. Theso havo never been sub
mitted to tho keeping of caucuses or politi
ciaus. Every man has tho right to judgo
for himself whom ho will cast his vote for,
and is morally bound to do so. Still every
republican will remember what ho owes to
his party and to republicanism, and will give
duo weight to n regular nomination, and to
tho fact that Judgo Stcolo does not now ask
for or expect bis voto.
Of the causes which led to Judgo Stcelo's
def-at wo might say much. Sonio interest
ing things could be told. Hut no good could
result from such a course. Nothing but an
incrcaso of bitterness could come from it
and surely thcro has already been enough
that. No truo friend of cither candidate
will now bo willini! to add any fuel- to the
flame which has nlready burned so fiorccly,
Wo thcrcforo couteut ourselves with saying
that Judgo Steele was not nominated, simply
because ho did not havo votes enough. N o
one will feel disturbed, at this reason, wo
Tho hard feelings which the contest has
caused should end with it. In most cases
they will. Hearty and healthy men, who
have been old friends but havo differed upon
this subject, will bo friends still. Every
honorablo man, when the heat is passed, will
remember that his friend has done only what
ovcrv citizen should do, has felt and cx
pressed a deep ititerest m a political ques-
tion. Tho threats of "ostracism and outlaw.
ry uiado hero in St. Johnsbury havo novcr
been very alarming when tho nearly oven
voto of tho people is considered. JJut wo
hope such feelings will now come to an end
A few dyspeptics nuy cherish resentments
and animosities upon each side. That is to
hocxpcctid. It is n part of tho disease,
liu. thtso bad stomachs can not keep foil
counties of neighbors and friends in a plate
of perpetual hourness. It is said that it re
quires more graco to boar a victory than
defeat. Wo of tho defeated will try to
muster up sufficient grace to endure our do
feat in a becoming manner. Wo hope to see
on tho part of the victors, candidato and all
a rcfpcctablo show of that greater amount
of graco appropriate to their situation.
While wo ucquicxcu in tho result of tli
convention, wo do not pretend to taka pleas
ure iu it. Tho friends of Judgo Steele hav
been wholc-hcartcd and earnest in tlieir re
spect and admiration for him, and in their
wisli to honor him by placing him in Con
cress. They have regarded him as a truo
and houorablo man, ono of tho pcoplo,
full sympathy with tho wishes and needs of
our farmers and laboring classes, yet broadly
educated, and competent to take his part in
tho discussion of every important question,
Hi character is such as to have wop the es
teem and affection of all who havo been
brought into terms of intimacy with him
His ability is such as to have secured for
him, at a remarkably early ago, a reputation
as a jurist hardly second to any in tho liisto
ry of our state. His manners aro unastum
iug, dignified and scholarly. Ho has uni
foruily insisted that his supporters should
uso only fair and honorablo means to pro
inoto his interests. Though their efforts
were not successful, his friends njoico that
thoy have worked for a high-minded and
great man, whose election would havo been
much moro than an honor to himself it
would havo been an honor to tho whole state
Tho horso discaso in Bt. Johnsbury, as
elsewhere, is abating, and considering its
universal provalencc, tho small 'amount of
permanent damage likely to accrue from it
is truly gratifying. Uut two doaths have
taken placo in tho village, and wo heard of

o our readers hnyo rendored favorable ae

THE JARVIS IMPORTATION.'
A correspondent of tho Boston Cultivator,
referring to an editorial that recently ap
pcarcd iu tho Vermont Farmer, but which
ho credits to tho iVeie England Farmer,
asks for information about Mr. Baker's
Dutch herd. He says :
lltwint! seen it stated in some iiuvicuUur.il
paper, the -Veto Enylaml farmer I bullovo
that n farmer In Newport, Vt., by tho namo
of Thomas linker, has n herd of cattle, called
" Dutch," mainly bred ns slated, from Con
sul .Tnrvls' importation of that breed many
years ngo, " superior in dairy qualities to,ro
cent importations into Massachusetts nnd
ctsewncre." i would iikoio innutro wnat uv
idence " thcro Is that tho Dutch cattle " of
Mr. Itakcr are purely bred from tho impor
tation ni uonsui .inrvisr And n so, wnat is
tho ovidencu that this importation of tlio old
Coimul wu tlio litnio breed ns that referred
to ns having been lately imported "into Mas.
sncluisotts and elsowlieroi'" l or It has novcr
been claimed cither for tho " Dutch " or tho
' Holstcins," ns I havo heard or read boforo,
that they nre superior or famous ns butter
cows, ns claimed for Mr. linker's In tho Ma

Now York State by Mr. .Miller, ns well its
Into Massachusetts by Mr. (Jhcncry, from
Holland, nro famous milkers nnd cheese
makers, their nrodtico of milk, as rezards
IxHh importations, being greater than that of
nny oilier nieeii oi cows on record in mis
country. Who can nnd will answer an
l Mr. liakcr's residence is not Newport, but
Darton, Orleans County, Vt., and ho irould
wo havo no doubt, willingly answer any in
quiries about ms nerd. About a year ago
we published an original paper by 'A. E,
Jameson, entitled " Historical Sketch of tho
Dutch or Ilolstciu Cattle now ill tho United
States." (Vt. Farmer for Aug. 10, 1871.'
In this paper an account is given of tho
" Jarvis Importation," aud of tho distribu
tion of tho puro bred stock sprung therefrom
liy " mainly bred " from Jarvis stock in the
articlo quoted by " Inquirer," wo did not
.ucan that Mr, liakcr's stock was not puro
bred Dutch, (or " Holstcin" if that namo is
preferred,) but that it was mainly bred in
the Jarvis strain. Mr. Itakcr has recently
introduced soma fresh blood from the ChcnO'
ry importation into his herd, with what re
suit as to their dairy qualities remains to bo
Tho Jarvis stock whero it has been purely
bred has also been closely bred, or " iu and
in "' as it is calicd, and a very distinct family
of this breed has been produced. While
preserving all its distinctive marks in color
und form, it is not so largo as tho Chcncry
stock, and tho milk is, according to all tho
facts we can gather, superior for butter mak
ing, In health and hardiness it is not
inferior to our native stock, whilo both cows
and steers aro easily fatted, and soil at high
prices for beef.
Tho Jarvis stock is tabooed by tho "ring'
of Massachusetts breeders of Dutoh cattle,
of which Mr. Chcncry is tho head, aud is
not admitted for record iu their " Herd
Hook," Yet it remains unquestionably of
equal purity in tho hands of men like Mr,
liakcr, Mr, Ucllows, of Peppcrill, Mass., and
Ituw-cl Jarvis, of ClarcmoutN. II. '; and in
every contest or trial between them, tho
Jarvis stock has como out ahead as dai
In 1800 Mr. Bellows wroto to tho Coun
try Gentleman iu regard to thein Thoy
aro largo enough for all practical purposes,
and produco more milk, and of better quail
ty for lutter than any other breed I havo
kept. In a letter to Mr. Jameson ho says,
referring to a particular cow, (July 1, 1871,
" 1 havo tostcd tho 'milk one week, and tho
rosult was 81 8-1 pounds cf ns good yollow
butter as ever was seen." Wo havo oursclf
repeatedly oxamincd and tested tho butter
from Mr. liakcr's cows, nnd havo always
found it equal to thu best, not luferior to
Jersey, and it has repeatedly taken first pro
niiums when exhibited iu full competition with
Jersey and other butter. As beef makers
wo should prefer tho Chcnory stock, which
almost equals tho Shorthorns in that respect
but for butter, tho Jarvis stock Is decidedly
prcferablo, in our judgmont. Tho Jarvis tn
portation of Dutch cattle was made early in
tho present century, tho oxact dato wo do

Very good ideas ; but tho farmers, con
stituting as they do the great bulk of tho
population, are begiuuiug to think they havo
a right to expect something moro in tho way
of public positions of honor and trust than
the offices of agricultural societies. "The
best man for tho place," without regard to
his occupation, is tho truo rule, aud these
best men are rarely found among tho wire
pullers who usually get the places. It
would bo a good plan to let tho teacher:
elect tho board of cducatiou, and tho farm
crs choose tho board of agriculturo. The
appointment system puts many cheap men
in such places bvcauso the governor does not
liko to say no, or will not take tho trouble
to find good men who will not ask, when h
has only to choose among tho worthless ones
that harass linn with their importunities.
