Fenianism on the Vermont Frontier.
Under the above head a special i-oitoh-pundent
of the Montreal Daily News
gives his pergonal observations and his
Impressions concerning Fenianlsin, and
the probabilities of a movement against
Canada. The same gentleman also visit
ed Plattsbnrgh, Malonc, OgdenHbuigli,
etc,, mid took a look at the situation
from each point. The News, by the
way, has not been of the frightened
class of Canadian papers, and does not
"give to airy nothings" ull the impor
tance which some of Its neighbors have
sometimes done. As the correspon
dence from this place will be of interest
to all our readers, we give it entire.
St. Ai.iiAS-rf.July Oth, 180S.
There is much less talk of Fenian
movements here than on the Canadian
side. Whatever the cut-throat Brother
hood may be doing, or intending to do,
they keep it a secret. The mass of the
Fenians themselves, I am convinced,
know very little of the real intentions
of the leading spirits. They are ex
tremely reticent, and are as suspicious
of the American as of the Canadian au
thorities. Consequently, it is exceed
ingly dilllcult to arrive at any decided
opinion respecting Fenian movements.
All I can do is to point out certain indi
cations of tlielr movements, and relate
certain facts which have come within
my knowledge, from which your read
ers can draw their own conclusions.
First, then, It is a fact that there is now,
and has been for the last few days, an
unusual commotion among the "Brother-hood."
What the nature or extent
of that commotion is I cannot say
whether it means a real raid on Cana
da, or is only a feint witli a view to en
chance the success of an actual raid on
the pockets of chamber-maids and hod
carriers, or whether it means anything
at nil or not, are questions which T am
also unable to answer. The Fenians
may be deceived by their leaders on this
oecahion, as they have frequently been
on former occasions, hut that there is an
unusual stir amongst them just now,
and that they expect a speedy move of
some kind, is sure. Military drill, to a
certain extent, has been carried on in
this neighborhood of late. Squads of
Irishmen without arms have been ob
served drilling in the evening in an un
frequented place near this town. J have
been unable to learn whether this drill
is carried on regularly. The place is
quite retired. The few farmers who
live there are Irish, and there might be
a regular evening drill there without
attracting general attention. Jn fact
the majority of Americans in this vicin
ity pay no attention to what the Fenians
may be doing, and are utterly indifl'er
ent about the matter. Fenian olllcers,
who have never been seen in St. Albans
since the last raid, have turned up with
in the lost week, staying a day or two
at St. Albans then going on to Malone,
and other places of Fenian notoriety.
The results of these mysterious visits
arc of course unknown, farther than the
fact of their being followed by unusual
commotion among the "brethren" to
which allusion has already been made.
I have received some additional infor
mation respecting the Fenian anns.latc
ly removed from St. Albans. Some of
these were sent South to Troy, and there
secretly distributed among the Fenians,
but the most of them were taken by
night in farmers' waggons into the hil
ly country east of St. Albans, inhabited
almost wholly by Irish. The most of
these arms are known as the Harper's
Ferry musket, somcwhatimproved, but
are, I learn, greatly inferior to the
breech-loaders used by the United States
troops and the Canadian volunteers.
Learning that a little village called
Fnirfleld Centre, situated about eight
or ten miles east of St. Albans, was one
of the hot-beds of Fenianism In this
Stnte, and, moreover, the place to which
some of the arms were supposed to be
taken, I determined to pay it a personal
visit, with a view of learning what I.
could from observation, and from con
versation with the people. According
ly, on Saturday afternoon, I started, and
after n rough ride over an exceedingly
high hill, almost worthy the name of
mountain, and winding around two or
three smaller elevations, 1 reached Fair
field Centre. It consists of a little two-
story frame tavern, two stores, one of
which included a post olllee, three
dwelling houses and a Catholic Chapel.
The region round about is undulating
una picturesque. The predominant
uonulation is Itoninn C'ltholin Trial,
Very little grain is raised; butter, cheese
and wool are the staple products. Hay

scarce, uio iarmers were very Dusy
They chielly depend unon French Cann
dian laborers for assistance during tho

tho demand for laborers is trreator than
the supply. It would require a strong
inducement or a strange infatuation to
make these men leave their farms to en
cugo in the wild-goose chase of invailinir
Canada. But all their sympathies are
with the Fenians, and thov would read
ily grant them assistance in the way of
cuuucuiiiig anus, supplying mem wltli
provisions, or in any other way that
would not involve the necessity of their
leaving their farms, shouldering a rille,
and mnrchlng to the front. Sunday af

casionnlly makiim a remark about Fc

subject was studiously avoided. Ono
young man, taking a stool into the mid
dle of the road, and planting himself on
it, called on "Mike" in gentloacconts to
ponorm tne omco oi barber, to which

were soon scattered to the winds. There
is somowhoro on tho Statute Book of
Vermont a prolnbltory liquor law, In
compliance with the provisions of this
law, there was no bar in this littlo cor
nor room, which In tho other less-ad
vnnceJ Statos would bo called tho bar

cited by observing that one and all of
my newiy lonned companions jnmlu
frequent visits to a littlo room in tho
roar of the building, and on making fur
ilior explorations I soon discovered the
cause of attraction, in the shape of a
huge cupboard well stocked with tile
prohibited beverages. Here "brandy
sinashcs," "gin cocktails." "sherry cob
blers," and other equally fashionable 1
and classical drinks were mixed up and
disposed of with a dexterity and an alac
rity which could only come of constant

On my return to St. Albans on Mon
day morning, I had the good fortune to
meei with two genuine, bona JUlc Fe
nian olllcers "Colonel" Bretiuau and
"Captain" Ctrisoll. of New York city.
The "Colonel," it appears, is an active
member oi tne "liroinernoou." lie it
was who superintended the removal of
the arms from St. Allium, first having
obtained tho required security from
some of the wealthy brethren of Troy
and New York, lie talked with me for
some time (not being aware I was a Ca
nadian), and spoke confidently of the
ultimate success of an attack upon Cana
da. He remarked that, the seizure of
their arms by the United States author
ities, at the time of the hist raid, was a
.Teat blow to tneni, and that they were
going to avoid this time, and in this
way: 1 he arms that were taken I mm
St. Albans were now scattered through
out the Irish portions of the State, and
it was impossible tne nun particular
stress upon this point) for the (iovern
ment to llnd out where they were. The
country is hilly, and there are plenty of
duces ol concealment; " and," added
ic, " the boys out there would think
nothing of letting daylight through any
man who would venture there as a spy
endeavoring to llnd outthe whereabouts
of thearms." This wasrefreshing news
tome, who had just returned from that
delectable region. " Besides," he ob
served, "if the Government should dis
cover one place of concealment, they
would only hud somchall-a-dozen arms
there." In short, the cfiect ol his re
marks was that they had now regained
possession ol their arms, and it was an
impossibility for the Government to re
cover them, or, should they be used un-
lawluliy, to recover tne amount ol the
securities ; simply because it would be
impossible lor that point to be proved,
seeing that tho Government had lost
track ol the whereabouts ol the arms.
The Colonel llattered himself that they
would experience no trouble troni the
U.S. authorities this time. Last time
they were too reckless, and took no
trouble to evade the Government. On
this occasion (he spoke of a raid as cer
tain) they intended to take a (Intercut
course. They would Keep out ol the
United States' authorities as much as
posible, and he believed the authori
ties could not go much out of their way
to interfere. He was of opinion, also,
that the officers of the army were favor
ably disposed towards the Fenians, and
would carry out any orders that might
be issued against them with as much
leniency as possible. The above was
simply the purport of the "Colonel's,"
rcniarKs, though no sjpouo m more cau
tious and guarded terms. He further
issured me that the arms which had
been removed from St. Albans were
available for use when wanted. He was
of opinion that theCanndians were pret
ty badly seared, but had no doubt that
when cornered they would show light.
lie organized a strong circle, so he said,
in some part of Fairliold County yester
day (Sunday) ; and intends to hold a se
cret meeting ol the brethren in this
town to-night. To-morrow morning lie
leaves for Malone. He is a young man
aboitf. thirty, I should say of medium
size, well-built, .intelligent, energetic
and earnest, and has quite a gentleman
ly and soldierly-like appearance. His
companion, "Captain" Grisoll, is also a
young man, very short of stature, and
has the physiognomical signs of great
determination and physical hardihood.
From all I can learn, the Fenians will
be greatly disappointed if they expect,
as "Colonel" Brennan says they do, that
the United States' ofliccrs will be dila
tory in executing orders against the Fe
nians. Major Gibson, commander of
tne iorees at uosion. was at t. Albans
the other day looking after Fenian
movements ; and Col. Powell, comman
der of the Garrison at Plattsbnrgh, I am
informed, is keeping a sharp eye upon
all their doings. However, I will prob
ably be able to give you more reliable
Information on this point in my next
l .u r 1 1 f i ' .
leuer. nave uuuu iiiioniiuu on goon
authority, that Gen. Meade, being now
relieved from his command in tho South
by the recent Amnesty Proclamation of
the President, will bo again appointed
to tne command oi tno northern fron
tier. Should this bo tho case, it is an
earnest that tho prompt means which
were taken in 1800 will be repeated in
1808, should the Fenians be so foolish as
to attempt another raid.
A few words before I close respecting
the general sentiment of the peojile in
this vicinity, as far as I have been able
to learn. The Irish to a man. "svinna
thize" with the Fenian moveniont, but
nothing more, it snouiu be borne in
mind, that at tho time of tho Inst raid
not a single man lrom ht. Albans or vi
cinity joined the ranks of tho raiders:
and in the event of another raid there
is less probability now of tho "army of
liberation" receiving any recruits lrom
this quarter. Tho real lighting men
among tno ieniana can only be lounu
in tho cities and largo towns men who
havo nothing to lose in their own coun
try, and wnono natural instincts would
lead tneni to preror a maiaudiiift lite,
If the Fenians really intend a raid their
plan of operations seems to be some
thing of tills nature. Squads of a hulf-n-
dozon or a dozen men without arms will
bo sent by rail to stations near tho fron
tier, lrom which they will quietly bo
tako themselves to the country. Boing
among friends thero they will collect
together, and, alter being supplied with
tne arms ami provisions which aro sun
posad to he secreted there, will mako a
dash over tho border. By this means
tlioy hopo to oludo tho vigllftneo of fl0
American authorities. The better class
of Americans heartily detest Fenlanlijiii,
and would rejoice to seo It crushed out;
but the majority are Indifferent about
the matter. They fool a little sore over
the St. Albans raid, and would look up'
on a raid on Canada ns a piece of retrib
utive justice. But, beyond this feeling, I
they have noHympathv with the Fenian j
movement, and would support their
Government In any steps they might i
uiivo io suppress an aotiial raid. They
till refer with pride to the prompt meas
ures taken by tlielr Government In 1800,
and evidently expect the same steps to
be taken In the event of another raid.
The Fenians I mean the few of those
who reason about the matter do not ex
pect success from their own unaided ef
forts, but tlielr hope lies in bringing on
a war between the two countries, They
also expect to derive considerable sup
port hi tho shane of money from needy
politicians, whose political existence
may depend on Fenian votes. Indeed.
It is the opinion of some Intelligent
Americans that all this preparation for
a supposed attack on Canada is only a
huge swlndlingoperatlon, to draw mon
ey into the Fenian coders during tho
coining political campaign, I have
never met with a single American, how
ever much he might he disposed to wink
at Fenianism, who for one moment sup.
posed that it would ever lead to a war
with Britain. Complaints of heavy
taxation are heard on every side, and a
war with Britain would be as much de
plored by the people here as on the Ca
nada side. The prevailing feeling
among Americans seems to be that ail
the diillcult questions between the two
Governments will be amicably settled.
A war is neither desired nor expected.

Tjh: Montpelier Aryus last week made
a great deal of capital out of the card of
dipt. Smith, of this place, In which tho
latter declined to act as one of the exe
cutive Committee of our sleepy Grant
Club. The Aryus jumped at the con
elusion that the gallant Captain thereby
repudiated the Republican ticket. Nev
er was a conclusion more erroneous.
While Capt. Smith does not propo-c to
be bound by any olection to hold any
Rip Van Winkle office, he will, we
think we may safely assure the Aryus,
vote for Grant ana Colfax in the coin
