FOR MEMBER OP CONGRESS,
WORTH IN GTOX C. SMITH
of St. Mbant.
The Nomination nt Iljdcpurk.
The Convention at Hjdcpirk yesterday
nominated Hon. W. C. Sana oi St. Albans
for Member of Congress from the Third Uis
trict. VTo have yet no particulars of the
action of the Convention further than given
in n brief telegraphic dispatch.
This choice we think, under tho tircuui'
ttancrt, was a wise one, and it will wo hope
be well supported by tho vote at tho Polls
on the Ctb of November, so that those wha
have desired harm for und have sought to
promote division in the ItcpuUican party tf
the District may be fully convinced that
whatever distensions may have sprung up
have in no way cflecteu the soundness at
bottom, of the party. Mr. Smith will, wc
trust, receive u large majority.
Tho Freeman says :
" Mr. Smith is a gentleman with a clear and
active brain, and a well-balanced judgment a
man who thinks belore he acts, and yet acts
promptly and energetically atd posiiivoly He
has been a member of both branches of the
State Legislature, and attracted attention as it
sound reasoner. a logical debater, comprehensive
in his style of thinking, and eminently judicial
in his mental characteristics. He is, perhaps,
outside of Burlington, the most fit man ti re
present the District in Congress.
The X. Y. Times urfcn Alexander H.
Stephens, a member elect of the United
Mated Senate from the State oi Georgia, but
prohibited from taking the position by the
third section of the Constitutional Amend
ment, " to go to work and use the unc
qualcd influence which be possesses in the
South to get, first tho Stato of Georgia, and
then the other States of the South, to ratify
the Constitutional Amendment"
AVc fear that Mr. Stephens will not heed
this exhortation. His position is, as we un
derstand it, as taken at Washington last
winter before the Reconstruction Commit
tee, that the South committed no offence in
rebelling, anil is still entitled to all her
former rights in tho Union. This view ot
the case, thanks mainly to President John
son, has become tbo popular one at the
South. It is plainly Btatcd by Gen. Vi'adc
Hampton of South Carolina, in a recent
speech, thus :
" Was the South ever diiloyal to the Consti
tution of the United States ! I deny that she
ever was, and I challenge her most bitter enemy
to adduce one single instance in which she has
been. Had the North been but half as loyal as
the South has ever been, no war would have
desolated oar country, and the Union would be,
what its founders intended one of equal and
sovereign Elates, bound together by the strong
ties of fraternal affection, instead ot what it cow
is. a consolidated despotism of the stronger
States, ruling with a led of iron the weaker
ones The South is, and ever hai been, loyal
in the proper sense of the word."
It is but a logical sequence from this view
of the case, that tbo National debt ought to
be repudiated and the rebel debt assumed,
and that these men would gladly accom
plish if tbey had tho power. They hive
lost the very idea of loyalty.
The United States Senatots.
The ''long agony" over the Senatorial
questions ended yesterday, in the quiet and
substantially unanimous elections, of Hon.
J 1st in S. Morrill for the Ions term oi six
years from next March ; of Hon. Geo. F.
EusetNDS for the unexpired term of Senator
Foot, until March 1SG9, and of Hon. Luke
V. Polam for the short bilaneo of Mr. Col
lamtr'i) unexpired term, ending March 1SG7.
The result fully bears tut all tbo predictions
we have made upon the subject, and wu con
gratulate the party and tbo State, on the
harmony and good feeling with which it wae
Wo believe that none of those who arc
responsible lor these selections of public
s e rvanti lor our highest places of honor and
j trust, will tee cause to regret their action.
Judge Poland will fill out his short Senatori
al term as acceptably as he has hitherto
served in that body, and tho State will then
have the benefit of bis high abilities in the
Hi upc. Mr. Morrill will leave tho House
for equally honorable and less arduous
tcrvicis in the Senate, here his long legiela
tivc cx'Crietiec Bnd high personal character
will give him at onc h recognized and high
pjMtiuu ; and Mr. Edmunds will continue to
du ere-dit to his party and the State, by bis
ability, industry and faithful defence of Re
publican principles in his seat in the Senate.
All is wrll, then, as to the Senators ; we
shall be very glad if the Congressional con
fiat in Huh district the only one uuw re
maining oi the important and exciting polit
ical questions o( this notable season in Ver
mont politics can bo settled any where
near as harmoniously and satisfactorily.

Unsettling Marriage. Tho Montpelicr
correspondent of the Rutland Herald remarks
as follows on some of the proposed Legisla
tion of this session .
Several bills in the Senste seem designed
wben taken together, to release married women
from the unusual disadvantages of their condi
tion, and make them tingle again, in all things
except ia name. One of these bills provides that
when any husband and wife shall live apart
without anv fault of the wife, she shall be en.
titled to all her own earnings, and may maintain
an action for them in her own name as if she
were unmarried. Another bill provides that a
married woman having separate property may
be sued for any cause of action which originated
against her before marriagt, and makes her pro
perty liable to attachment and execution. It
also exempts any husband hereafter married
trom any liability fcr tb debts of bit wife con. i
t racted before marriag. Let tbeat bills btcoaa I

Dear Fret Prtrs .
The election ef U. S. Senators to-day was
a very formal and prosaic piece of business. As
the results were foregone ccnclusicns, all excite
ment in regard to them bad ceased. Still quite
a numerous gathering or outsiders, gcniicmen
and ladies, assembled in the House to see the
thing done. It commenced at two o'clcck. Un
der the law, each member as bis came is called
rises in his teat and mentions the name of the
man of his choice. Of course it was a some
what monotonous proceeding, the only variation
being when some one of the scattering democrats,
rari nanlct in gurgile ratio, was reached, and
the only curiosity being as to who they would
cast their votes for. They voted for Henry
Keyes of Newbury, against Mr. Poland; for II.
B. Smith tf Miltcn, against Mr. Ei'mnnds; and
forT. P. Redfield cf Montpelicr, ogaidtt Mr.
Morrill. I have not seen the Montpelier cor
respondent of the Boston Poif, who informed
the public a while encc that Mr. RtdnelJ wae
to cut a prominent figure in the Stnatcrial con
test, and who predicted that he would ccme out
of it " something more than a Sardine," to in
quire how much more than a "sardine," Mr.
Rcdfield's sixteen votrs have made him. The
other two democratic cacdidalts riceivid fifteen
votes apiece, and cno vote was thrown for H. G.
Smith, by a luckless democrat who dijti't know
the name of his candidate. He wanted to cor
rect his blunder, after the vote was dtclated
but the Speaker decided that it wa t-i late.
then, for any change of votes.
This evening Hon. F. E. WoopEBltct ad
dressed the Legislature at their request. There
had been some misunderstanding about the time
fixed by Mr. Woodbiidge, for that purpose, and
it was cot understood that he would speak to
niiht till he arrived this afternoon. Then word
was hastily passed around, and the Reprceenta
titrs Hall was well filled with bearers.
MB. WOOPBEIDCC'S SrCSCII.
Prefacing his speech with an explanation
of the misunderstandics as to the p
p iatment of a time lor bun to aj
dress the Legislature, and promising
a short speech for as he said, he knew the
members would rather be down with the pretty
girls at the Ladies' Fair and so would he be
proceeded to allude to tho last speeches of Sena.
tor, Collamer andj Foot in that Hall, to pay a
tribute of respect and affection to their memory.
He pasted to a consideration of the Cocititutiec
al Amea Iment. There are, he said.thrce differ
ent views ot the present position of the late rebel
States. One is that they arc alien enemies
this is hell by Mr. Thad. Stevens and the pion
eers of his stamp. Another is that they are still
States in the Union and entitled to all the rights
of the States that have been letyaL This is the
opinion of Mr. Johnson and Mr. Seward, whom
said Mr. W. "I used to admire, bnt do not any
longer." Another is the view of Congress that
the lately seceded States are in the Union so fir
as the jurisdiction cf the United States goes, and
bound to obey the laws of the United States ;
but having suspended their relations to the
Government, they have no right to representa
tion until tbey come back as a loyal p ocle un
der a republican form of government. This waa
not yet the case ; to admit them now to Con
gress would be to allow them by corruption anl
intrigue to accomplish what th;y could not do
by arms. As he had told a cabinet officer, he
for one, would stand out in Congress a thousand
years before he would vote to alrait traitors to
scats. The PreiiJent had undertaken to say to
the Southern States how they could elect Re
presentatives and Senators, as he had no right
to do. He had :akl that Congress could keep
out traitors by passing on their credentials ; but

Mr. Woodbridgc proceeded to take up and
vindicate the amendments in detail; that in refer
ence to representation he considered a step
towards univeral suffrage and when that is
achieved. Lord let thy servant depart in iace.
He did net think Congress had the right to in
terfere with suffrage, that right the constitution
gives to the States : but he was in favor cf
universal suffrage. He believed that equal suf
frage was a proper element of republican civili
zation. He believed that the adoption of the CVt
stituticcal Amendment would induce the States
to adopt equal suffrage, and that the Southern
States would ratify the amendments if it were
cot for the influence of northern men. He had
no fear of negro equality, God regulato

As fur the treatment of traitors, he would
have hung about a hundred ct them if he had
had bis way. He considered the pretext that
Jeff. Davis could cot t tried fcr want of juris
diction, all humbug.
Mr. Wcodbridge further announced himself
as in favor of the Monroe Doctrine. He would
say to France, hands off from Mexico, and to
England, make reparation for the damages to
our commerce by your pirates. He was also in
favor of a tariff for revenue and for protection,
and believed tho tariff bill, with increased pro
tection for wool, would pass the Senate. Final
ly he had been accused of being a Johnson
man." what sort of a one he was they could see.
He was opposed to the policy of Mr. Johnson,
opposed to his speeches, and he had no desire
for a seat cn the circle he was swinging round;
but he did not see fit to abuse the President, but
rendered to him the respect due to the chief
magistrate of the nation. Mr. Woodbridgc
closed with a glowing picture of the grand fu
ture of our country, and was heartily applau l-

What is their occupation ! Are they progres-

lacd to maintain a population equally dense !
These are practical questions, deserving atten
tion, for it has been said that New England has
exceeded the limit of agricultural
j that she can only exist by importing bread from
the West, and giving manufactured articles in
J return. The question of climate comes first
, New England has hot, short summers and cold
winters, with trom three to five months of enow
on her hills, Switzerland has longer, cooler
summers and warmer winters. Here, as I write,
en this second day of October, I can lock from
my window upon the roses in bloom in the gar
den, and upon the Alps white with enow. No
frost as yet has touched with cold fingers the
tics upon the surrounding hills; but it is not
climate alone which enables the Swiss to pro
duce two crops of grass yearly cn their mowing
lands, bat a husbandry such as New England
farmers know nothing of. In .limt i, in
land has the advantage, hot-the hills of Ver-
ctturauy is fertile as those of this
lUpublie: they art of tbe tats geologie ftnsa.
"VH - ura UmCSIODV,
The next question is that ot labor, which in I
Vermont is worth a dollar or a dollar and a :
quarter a day, while here it ranges from ten to
twenty cents. -o woman oi termoni mcma
the hoe all day long by the side of her husband,
but here the wife performs quite as much labor in
the fields as the head of the family. In a pop
alation so dense, every rod ct arable land is
under cultivation. But I with that the tanners
of New England could have a Swiss plow on ex
hibition at their agricultural fairs. 1 know oi
nothing which could be more attractive HiJinz
across the coua-ry last week, I laid my hands to
one of them and saw it in operation. And such
a plow ! The Swiss plowshares will not be I
beaten into swords wben the Millenium comes j
round; the reason why will be shortly appa- (
The instrument is on this wise : a piece of J
oak joist, threo feet long and three inches j
square, forms the foot; one end of the timber is ;
scarfed and upon the scarf a thin piece ot iron I
is nailed, which forms the point cf the plow. ,
Two uprights, framed into tho foot, hold the
beam; a straight board, without iron, witnoui a
line of curvature, projecting from one of the
uprights, turns the furrow, while two handles
complete the instrument, whichsimply scratches
the ground. I measured the furrow, which
was about five inches wide and three deep ! I
noticed in one field where the sub soil was bard
that men and women followed the plow with hoes
to deepen the furrow : I dare say that your
readers will be astonished 'o learn that the
largest part of the land is never touched even
by this rude instrument, but is turned solely by
There arc thousands tf acres which might be
plowed, which are as free from stone and as
easy of cultivation as the magnificent meadow
lands of the Connecticut, but which areuug
over every season by men and women, with great
clumsy hoes, which contain more weight oi
metal than the plows !
Ibcrc is a rcmirkable discrepancy in tne in
dustry and mechanics of Switzerland, for in
railroad engineering, in the construction of lo
comotives, in architecture, in the manufacture
of watches they are unsurpassed; but in mill
machinery, in agricultural implements, car
riages, in labor-saving machine!', they are away
bick in the loth century.
" Why do you not plow jour land instead of
digging it over?" I asked of one of ihe people.
"Ob, labor is very cheap," was his reply.
The multitude have no conception of the true
principle which underlies economy that mind
is more powerful than muscle. So ignorant are
they of this principle that they use the hoe in
stead of the plow; themselves instead of horses.
Tbey transport everything possible on their
backs instead of using carts. Their wheeled
vehicles arc mainly ban lcarts.
But in the utilizing of manures and of fer
tilizers New England men can come here and
take lessons. These hills and valleys ot west
ern Switzerland are not green the year around,
because the wiuters arc milder than at Boston ;
not because tbey are naturally more fertile, but
because fertilizers are saved instead of wasted,
and because they are applied ia the btt man
ner to the growing crop. 1 verily believe that
if the husbandry of New England waa equal to
that of Switzerland in the matter of sating and
applying fertilizers that the State of Vermont
mirht sustain a population of millions of inhab
itants. O.you farmers of the Green Mountains, who
are beating the world on sheep husbandry, just
come over here and see how tbe people of
Switzerland make their hills as green as their
valleys notwithstanding their wretched tilth,
simply by the management of their fertilisers.
I would not have the charming girls of
those verdant hills along Lake Champlain twiog
a hoc from morning till night through all the
summer months ; I would not hive their sweet
ness and grace thrown away by ceaseless Ubor
in the fields ; I would not like lo see them
trampling into the fields with a wooden vessel
shaped like an old-fasbioneJ churn strapped to
their backs, filled with manure. Tbe Swiss
peasant girls give themselves to sach Ubor.
Everything is saved here in a practical way. You
see heaps ot routing strew, scrapings from tbe
rcalside, piled near tbe sink spouts, watered in
dry weather to keep up the decomposition.
Ashes, slops, and refuse fn m bou-e or stable,
is thoroughly decomposed and reduced to liquid
fjrm, belore applied to the crop. Strange tbat
a people so wise in tbe application cf fertilizers
shou d be foolish in other things ! Yet
such are the coctrai ieties of life. Tbry might
retort and say, "Strange tbat the people of
New England, who are so inventive, so realy to
produce all sorts or toaebincry, to maze iron
and steel do tbe work cf human fingers, so in
telligent upon sheep husbandry, and in raising
horses, should be so unwise in tbe simplest anil
most important of all matters in husbandry
that of food for tbe soil !"
