It will be observed that two distinct and

tory of tbo government tho Centennial of
tho birth ot a stato never yet having been com
memorated tho Commission are extreme! v
solicitous that tho occasion shall in ovory rc-
eiicui. uu wormy oi tno great ovont tho cole
bration is intended to signalize. Tho nco
plo of Vermont tako an honest pride iu tho
Green Mountain stato and though reasons
multiply why thoy do so, they simply .say,
"Tiieylore their land bocauso It Is their own
And scorn to give auzht other reasons why."
While, howovcr. thov would not claim Ibr
it perfection, excopt tho perfection of bcautv
oi lanuscape, tuoy consider it, and rightly
too, the model stato of tho Union, tho best
exemplification of free government to bo
found on the faco of tho earth. Born of a
Mivu uuiHusi mat taxea tno resources ot a
political management of tho highest order ;

mcnt lor nearly a score of years ; tho land
claimants of neighboring states making its
territory their fighting cround. nnd England
during tho revolution trying through Canada
iu cajoic, wneouio anu bribo her, Vermont
held her steadfast courso, turning neither to
tho right hand'nor tho loft, ns firm ns her
hills, developing thoso principles of solf-gov-crnmcnt
which have stood her in good stead
for a full oeutury, which have given her a
placo iu tho galaxy of states more than com-
racnsurato with her population and wealth ;
whioh havo onablod hor citizons widoly
scattered over tho world to impress her in-
(lucnoo upon her cominqnitieiin4nc.iridai23.
and whicb, through a long lino of her sons,
eminent in character, skillful in legislation.
and wiso in statesmanship, havo constantly
ma-.ntaincu lor tier a proud position in tho
councils of tho nation.
Tho commemoration of an event so marked
in the nation's history as a stato Centennial,
is certain aiono to oring to our borders a
largo concourso of pcoplo from all parts of
mo country, a moments reflection will suf
Gco for this ; and it is a point in which it is
unnecessary lor tho Uommission to cnlargo
in presenting tho subjoot to tho pooplo of tho
Btato. it is proper, nowover, to impress
too necessity ot making ( amplo prepar
ations for so important an occurrence, and
especially of urgiog them to keep constantly
iu view its high and worthy object.
On tho 10th of August, 1877, tho Cen
tennial anniversary ot the battlo of Bcnning
tou will occur. For ninety and nino vcars
the town of Bennington has observod tbo au-
nual occurrcnco ot this day. Gen. Stark in
sending somo trophies of tho battlo to Mas-
sacbusctts speaks of it as "a glorious vie
tory," which "ought to bo kept in memory
anu nanucu down to futurity as a lasting
and laudablo cxamplo for tho sons nnd
dauchtors of the victors." This iniunction
has boon faithfully oboyed in Bonnington,
tho sccno of the hero's greatest achievements.
Thirty-nino years after tho battlo a Bon
nington committco wroto a letter to Stark
informing him that every year sinco his vic
tory his namo had been remembered by a
publio celebration in that town : and every
year sinco some publio notico has been made
of tho day there ; and now Vermont herself
has sent greeting to Now Hampshire nnd
Massachusetts proposing to crown tho cen
tury by a celebration that shall worthily
honor not only tho memory of tho hero who
so tbouguttully enjoined it, but also tho
states and the pcoplo which shall participato
Particularly must Vermont bo careful
that tho stato takes no detriment, through
any ncgligcnco on her part to make amplo
preparation for this great event. On this
occasion sho acts tbo host ; all othors aro
icr guests. Massachusetts has already.
through her government and her legislature
accepted her invitation as such ; and New
Hampshire whoso leadership in tho events
which shaped tho battlo, and in tbo battlo
itself aro matters of history, will, when her
legislature convenes, doubtless not bo behind
her sister state. Tbo guests which havo
been invited to tho celebration of Vermont's
Centennial bavo also been invited to tho
Centennial of tho battlo of Bennington.
Military organizations in very crcat numbers
in all parts of tho country, are anxious to

and character of tho celebration adds to the

burdens the Commission cannot evade nor
can the pcoplo of Vermont ; - and it is to tbo
pcoplo of Vermont that the Commission
would most earnestly appeal. The stato bas
appropriated a small sum to carry out tho
work it has set us to do. Tho most nru.
dent estimates make not less than 810,000
and some roach 815,000 as tbo sum
needed in addition to the 6 tale's appropria
tion necessary for Vermont to maintain tho
dignity of host on tho important oocasioo.
That tho pcoplo of Vermont will cordially
respond to this earnest appoal of the Com
mission for aid in carrying forward its noble
object cannot for a moment bo doubted.
Whilo theso linos aro passing through the
