Committed Si'iciDi:. A man by the
name of Alger, living on liicc Hill,
committed suicide, yesterday, by hang
ing himself, lie had been sick for sonic
time past, and had met with numerous
misfortunes in regard to money matters.
We have henrd that a cac which he
had in tho late County Court went by

For the information of the public,
allow me to make a statement in (lie
columns of your paper. "Yours for
the truth" lias stated lor the Informa
tion of the public what the public gen
erally know; that tho M. Ji. Church
have not "authorized, appointed or en
couraged or controlled" said prayer
meetings, Arc, in this village, and at
the Bay, but on the contrary have op
posed the work, locking their unoccu
pied house at the Juay against the peo
pic that laid their money for a tree
church, and a living Gospel in said
Jf Malcotn has not authorized or on
couraged the v. ork, God has, and has
sealed the same bv the conversion of
souls. I never yet learned that in
"truth" it was necessary to be "au
thorized " by the M. E. Church to hold
a prayer-meeting, or preach the Gospel.
I might suppose that the Congregation
alists, Baptists, and others, got their
nermibsion from the M. IS. Church, to
hold religious meeting, from your col
There are several branches of
Mctbodst Church, "legitimate,"
these meetings arc held by "Free Meth
odists " encouragement, who believe in
working as Wcley worked, for the sal
vation of men, and not to build up a
:-ect or obtain worldly honor.
God being with us we shall succeed
in his good work though professing
christians sit in theseat of the scornful
Hut I pity tho church or minister who
docs not encourage prayer-meetings,
where profane men are converted to
God. lie is a .low who is one inward
ly and bears the fruit. The public arc
cordially invited to attend all of our
meetings, and judge for themselves.
Meetings are held every Sabbath at 10J
o'clock, a. in., at the Bay ; Sunday and
Wedne.-day evenings at " Western He
serve " school house.

I'khsoxal. We received a call to-day
from Mr. Chas. E. Eaton, Avho has re
cently been appointed General Agent of
thoYcrmont Life Insurance Co., at Bur
lington. Mr. Eaton is a gentleman of
over nine years' experience In the insur
ance business, and for tho last year has
been the Vermont agent for the Hart
ford Life and Annuity Insurance Co.
The "Vermont Life " has done a'c11 in
its selection of a General Agent, and
the Company cannot fail to meet with
the encouragement it so richly de-
Dkowxli). A Mrs. It. G. Clark and
her child Avore drowned on Wednesday,

Aiiscondhd. Jarcd M. Davis, who
avus arrested at Bellows Falls some time
since for robbing mails on tho Sullivan
Railroad, and subsequently bailed, has
ab-conded. At a recent session of the
U. S. Court in New Hampshire, at
Portsmouth, hoAvas arraigned and plead
not guilty. Tho next day ho Avas called
for trial, but failed to put in an appear
ance, leaving his bondsmen to pay $2,000
bail. The .1 udire ordered a capias N-ued

Vt. Centkal R.R. The Free Press
says that at tho Boston StockExchango
Wednesday, Vt. Central first mortgage
bonds advanced from 77A to 7S. Tho
earnings of tho Central for March Avere
$1.11,300 against $110,200 last year. Tho
increased business makes apparent the
necessity of a larger equipment, and Ave
learn from tho city money articles that
the Court has sanctioned the issue of
$500,000 additional equipment bonds,
petitioned for by nil interests; to run
twenty years, 8 per cent., free of Gov
JiAitiii: Expectations. A certain
Mr. B., of Castleton, tho other day
planted 70 hills of tho Early Rose from
three potatoes. Putting one eye In a
hill, he reckons that 10 hills will Aield
a bushel of potatoes, and if he can get
$10 a bushel for them, ho AVill realizo
more than $70 from tho 70 oyes. How
much easier it is to mako llgures than it
is to raise oven early roe potatoes.

don't believe there is another town in
the State that furnishes so many and so
handsome a lot of schoolmartns in pro

proportion to its population, than any

that always backs with a rush, and on
this occasion backed a little too far, and
over the embankment Avont horse,
wagon, rubbish, boy and all into the

of things. The result of the whole af
fair was a great scare to Frank and the
horse, cutting the harness a little and
breaking ono thill. The Avhole estab

is a wonder that they did not break
their necks or drown, a the water was
