An Unpublished Autofi'dpli of
The special meoting of tho Vermont
ltiHtorieal Hoclt'ty. recently held nt ltnt
land, whs one of the most successful ses
sions it litis ever had ; its respects tho
quality of the audience, the number mid
variety of the papers presented, the ad
ditions to tho mcmbor.snipy, and tho
general impetus given to the movements
of the Society. It was decidedly tho
most successful iis respects tho acquisi
tion of valuable historical documents.
Among the most important of these may
be mentioned the original Journal of
the l-'irst Council of Censors (which met
in 17S.3). a manuscript of twenty fools
cap pages, in tho clear, bold autograph
of Micah To'vnsbend, Secretary ; tno
Journal of the Second Council, which
met in 171)1', in tlie Handwriting or itos
well .Hopkins ; and nunieious official
papers connected v'itli tno iNow lorn.
and New Hampshire controversies.
l'ornuns no one oi tno miners is ot
greater general intcrestthan the original
complaint ol litban Allen to the court
of Conliscation, charging his brother
Levi witli treachery to the State of Ver
mont, and praying that measures might
be taken to punish him. Made's btate
papers profess to give this document,
but it is with omissions and alterations,
which, though they improve the gram
mar, and possibly the rhetoric of tho pa

brief am! expressive word "hurting,"
we have in Slado the circumlocation,
"endeavoring to lessen the credit of."
Allen also had notions of his own in re

The lightning played some curious and
rather unpleasant pranks at the resi
dence of Mr. John Stimson, No. 7 Oak
Street, Cumbridgcport, during theshow
er on Monday alterr.oon. Tlie fluid
struck an elm'in front of the house, leap
ing thence to tlie corner ot the building
and literally " f;oing through" every
room in tlie house. The plastering was
torn from the walls, the glass In tlie
windows broken out, the sashes injured,
and mirrors shivered jn(:o inlmitcsima)
atoms. The lightning was particularly
attracted by looking glasses, which it
"knocked into flinders" at a flash. Tho
furniture in all the rooms was thrown
about and injured, and pieces were
gouged out of tables, doors, &c., as if
done with carpenters' tools, two or
three balls of lire played round on the
floor ot a room 111 whicii were six per
sons hcverai ot mem ciniuren seated on
tlie floor, and yet no one was injured or
seriously afl'ected by the dangerous ele
ment, although its influence was felt
unpleasantly. co less tnan live nans ot
fire were seen to dance through the en
try and roll down the cellar stairs, but
where they made their exit from the
premises cannot bo discovered. Tlie
damage to the houe was of course con
siderable, and altogether it was such a
display oi natural pyrotechnics as rare
ly happens, and one that tho family
would not care to havo repeated. They
aro verythankful that so littlo harm was
Utah and Polygamy. A correspon
dent of the San Francisco Bulletin says
the traveler arriving from the East into
Utah comes to it prepared lo bo easily
pleased witli everything ho finds. Tho
trip over tlie desert from tho Missouri
river is a rough one, and getting back
again into civilization is of itsolf such a
luxury that everything pleases. The
consequence is that Utah has been re
presented as a garden, which, indeed, it
is, when compared with the surround
ing country. But.with few exceptions,
tho farms will not compare witli those
of Callforia, or the Mississippi valley.
The system of irrigation, too, for which
the MormoiiH havo received so much
credit, lias really involved but littlo la
bor, owing to tho numerous streams
which course down tho mountain sides,
and which aro easily diverted.
