The Musical Convention.
We hope our readers will remember
the Convention of the Northern Ver
mont Musical Association, to he holdeu
at. Academy Hall in this village, next
week, commencing Tuesday, January
"ith, and closing 1'riday evening. Mr.
Hoot, the conductor, though never he
fore in this part of the State, Is probably
better known as a composer than any
man in America. Who has not heard
his "Buttle Cry of Freedom," 'Tramp
Turnip, " and that gem of sacred song
"My days invaliding swiftly by," notto
mention a great numbrof excellent me
trical tuuesand substantial choruses. Jlut
more than lliit, we arc assured by one
intimately acquainted with him, that
he is a Christian gentleman in the full
est sense of the term.
Mr. Wyinan, win. is engaged is as
sistant conductor, is not so well known
to our musical public, JIo is a .ood
baritone singer, and has wiitten some
tine church tunes, and the fact that Mr.
Hoot d est ics his assistance isasulllcient
guarantee for his fitness. vVe learn
from those competent to judge that the
solo talent engaged has never been so
good. Mrs. Smith has no superior as a
soprano in New England, while Mr.
E. P. 1'hillips needs no commendation.
Deservedly a gro t faorile In this vi
cinity, our people will not fail to give
him a wnrm reception after nearly a
year's absence, i pent in study under as
pood an instructor as Boston atlbrds.
Those who have heretofore attended
these annual gatherings, will find that
the managers have ma ic some improve
ment in the programme for this year.
The conductors, anu music to be used,
are entirely new, an attractive feature
which last winter's convention did not
afford. .They have also very wisely, we
think, (ecu lit to dispense with a " hu
morist,',' probably judging that tthe
price paid for making grimaces was a
good ileal more than the real value.
Messrs: Moore, of Eurlington ; Proctor,
I of this village ; and F. YV Hoot, arc the
With the circular advertising the con-,
ventioii, is published a request signed by
many of our leading citizens, asking
that the convention be called at St. Al

Calais Turkeys. The Montpelicr
Freeman says that Mr. Phineas Wheel
er, of Calais, last week, dressed snd
sold to Albert Dwinell, Esq., 300 tur
keys, weighing 3,000 lbs., on private
terms. The sale could not be less than
$000. That is the way to "Talk Tur

the Times with regret. It has been a.
well-conducted paper, and its editors,

guests numbered about fifty, including
delegations from Post 7 of Springfield, I
and 14 of Rutland, and tho Altlmontj

at the Ludlow House, and after tho
eatables were fully appreciated, the ta

remarks were made by Commander

Tun PLATTHBUitan Finn. The
Pittsburgh correspondent of the Free
Press sends that paper the following ac
count of the late fire in that village :
Tho United S ates Hotel, an old land
mark in this village lies in ruins. At
7 o'clock on Monday evening, two or
three of its chimneys were burning out,
but as the roof was covered with sr.ow
no danger was apprehended. At 8
o'clock however, a bright tongue of
fiatne was seen issuing from the roof
near one of the dorm?, windows on the
south side. An alarm was at once giv
en but all efforts to save the building
muled nothing, and in les than three
hours the building was entirely consum
ed. Everything valuable was saved
from the house, and none of the out
buildings were injured. The s ddi .rs o4
tho42d (J. S. Infantry, with their offi
cers from the barracks, came down on
the doublcquiok, with buckets in hand,
and worked faithfully and efficiently
until the safety of all other buildings
was secured. The amou.it ot insurance
on the Hotel is sai.l to be $9,000.
This hotel was one ot tho old land
marks of the village, and contained
bullet holes made by the Britthh troop
in tho battle of Plattsburgh.
