The lamt rule holds food with thott uho are in arrtart
for THE Pll&XIX.
Tho Vermont Election.
The Freemen uf Vermont held their election
on Tuesday last, for Governor, Lieutenant Gov
ernor, Treasurer, Senators, Representatives,
l.ounty Officers, Judges of Probate, and Jus
tices (if the Peace.
So J'iir as wo can learn but little interest was
felt in the election, and hut little manifested at
the polls. Vermont is so decidedly Hepiibll
can in sentiment that no soit of doubt of the re
sult could be apprehended. On tho cither hand
the Democrats are so fow and far between that
they cannot fiivo us a contest at all interesting.
Hence the vote was unusually light on ail sides.
The Republican Slate ticket, which was com
posed of tho names of the present incumbents,
is elected hy the usual proportionate majurity.
In Windham County, which has for a num
ber of years, been iho theatre for tho polling of
split tickets, tho regular Republican nominees
aro all elected by about equal majorities. We
saw a ticket with the name of Philip Wells
substituted for that of George Perry, but it was
not put in extensive circulation. It is but justice '
to Mr. Wells to say that this ticket was start
ed and circulated without his knowledge or con-1
sent. Tho voto is much smaller than wo have j
ever before known in the county. In some of
the towns some interest was felt in the election
of Representatives, which also tended to increase
the vote for tho other candidates.
Vermont is Republican to tho core. Her
Freemen repudialo sham-democracy in all its
forms and under all circumstances. They aro
unalterably opposed to the extension of slavery,'
and to its usurpations. They sympathize with ',
freo snjl, free labur, free speech, andfreomon.J
Each succeeding year they renew their record ,
of inflexible devotion to Ireedom, and fasten)
their seal of condemnation on all who seek to i
vote ron QOVtRSOn.

GREAT FIRE IN BRATTLEBORO !
I SIXTEEN MULIHXGS BURNED.
LOSS FROM SUO.000 TO SIOO.OOO,
IMDS TilROWX OCT (IF EMPLOYMENT.
Tho most destructive fire that has ever occureil
In Brattleboro, or in this section of country, took
place this (Friday) morning. About half past one
o'clock, A. M., Dr. K. C. Cross, who was sitting
up with a sick child, discovered a fire in the Cabi
net manufactory of Messrs. Gates, Bliss & Co. As
soon as possible he gave the alarm, but it was fif- j
teen minutes or more before the citizens generally
were aroused. The Maizcppa Engine and the boys, j
machino v, ere promptly on the ground. But these
were not enough to stay tho flames In a building
so large and filled with combustible matter as the
Cabinet shop.J Unfortunately, the Hydropath Com
pany with Its tub was absent at Worcester. The
flames were soon commuuicatcd to Joseph Clark's
drug and hardware 6torcon tho north and Estey &
Green's large Mclodeon manufactory and ware
house on the south ; and the fire was not stayed
until both of these buildings as well as that in which
the firo oiiginated, Willard Frost's shoe store
a largo dwelling-house owned by Nathan
Woodcock, Woodcock & Vintou's Paper-mill,
Crane & Vinton's Machino shop, Charles
L. Mead's rulo factory, ( formerly E. A.
Stearns & Co.,) a dwelling house occupied by four
families and owned by Luther IVeld, Dr. E. C.
Cross' dwclling-luuse, John Pellet's dwelling
house, Fred C. Edwards' direlling-hou9e, Emory
Farnsworth's dwelling-house, occupied by three
families, and an unoccupied store owned by Samu
el Boot, were all completely burned to tho ground.
The firo raged with great fury for four hours. Tho
combustible nature of tho buildings, and their con
tiguity rendered it utterly Impossible to check the
fire, breaking out as it did nearly In the centro of
the burnt district. While the Mazcppa engine tins
combating the flames on one side, the engine from
West Brattleboro arrived and rendered goodservica
in saving several dwellings on the south of those
burned, which barely escaped after a most thor
The destruction of property was unprecedented
in the aunals of conflagrations in this region.
More than half of tho mechanical business of Brat
tleboro is thus, as It were in a moment, swept out
of existence, The details of losses together with
amounts insured wo give below. In tho haste with
which 5ur report is prepared, and tho confusion
naturally incident to such a destruction of busi
ness, our figures may not In all cases bo exactly
verified by subsequent Investigations; but they arc
believed to be substantially correct.
Gates, Bliss & Co., lost their factory building,
all their extensive stock of manufactured furniture,
unfinished wero, lumber, tools, &c, amounting to
about $15,000. They wero insured for $5000
$2000 in tho Windham County Mutual, $2000 in
tho Farmer's Mutual at Montpelier, and $1000 in
the Firo & Marine Company, Springfield Mass.
They employed about twenty-five hands, all of
whom are thrown out of business.
Joseph Clark lost his store and a large portion
of an extensile and valuable stock of goods such as
are usually found in a hardwaro and drug store,
paints, oils, &c. His loss Is estimated at $9000;
$5000 of which is insured In Vt. Mutual, S4000
on goods, $1000 on building and $1600 on goods
in Y orccster, Mass.
Willard Frost's shoo shop, owned by tho heirs
of tho late James Frost, was burned and a partial
destruction of stock sustained. Loss on building
$800; Insured la Vt. Mutual for S 100. Insuranco
on stock, &c, in tamo company $500, which will
moro than covor the loss.
Tho shop occupied by Estey & Green for the man-
ufactuio of melodeons, &c, was ownod by Jacob
Estey, Ills loss on building and machinery will
come fully up to $5,000. He was Insured
for $1000 on building and $500 on steam engine,
machinery, &c. Mctsrs Estey k Green lost most
of their manufactured goods, stock, machinery,
tools, &o, aroouutlng very neatly to $15,000. Thoy
were insured In the Vt. Mutual for only $1,900. In
the same building was tho pump and lead pipo shop
of Jacob Estey, Ills loss In that department is cs.
tlmatcd at $800 to $1000, Messrs, Estey & Kath
an oceuptod a room fir tho manufacture of marblo
monuments, &o. Their loss Is estimated at $1 ,500
Insured for $500 In Windham County Mutual.
Meurs. Bemls & Ware bad just opened a machine
shop for tho manufacture of planing machines,
Their loss was from $1,200 to $1,600 ; no In
surance. The basement was ocoupledby J. F
lard for planing lumber, and by George A. Stearns
I for a carpenter's shop. Their loss was probably '
1,000; no Insurance.
Messrs. Woodcock k Union's papcr-mi.l, to
! gcther with a large stock of piper, rogs, &c, was
I totally destroyed with tho exception of about 8800
J worth of paper. Tho same firm owned tho build
ing occupied for a rule factory. Their loss Is es
timated at 320,000 to 25,000 ; Insured In the
;12tna Company, at Hartford, for $C,7iO. Messrs.
Crane & Vinton, machinists, ocpttpylng a portion
of the abovo proporty, lost most of their tools,
planer, lathe, &c. Their loss is estimated at $1.
Charles L. Mead's rule fictory, (lately owned
and oceupiol by 1!. A. Stearns, & Co.,) was par
tially destroyed. The iiifitiuf.icliu cil rules and the
most valuablo machinery, was saved. He was In
sured for S 1000 at Plttslicld, Maw., which will
probably cover his loss.
The dwelling-house ndjoln:ng vtas owned by Lu
ther Weld, and Has occupied by (VI. Henry, Leon
ard Squires, Frank Holding npd L. llaiielt. Hut
a small portion of tho furniture of each was saved.
Tho loss on the building Is estimated at $2000) In
sured in tho Wiudhani County Mutual for $1200.
Thcro was no insurance on the furniture.
Dr. 1!. P. Cross lot his bouse, wood, provisions,
medicines, Ac; mot of his furniture, wcarlngnti- ,
parol, books, &c, were saved. His los is i-stinm- I
ted at S3000 to $3500; Insured In the Vt. Mutual '
for S1000 on his house, and ,$20J on wearing up- j
John Pellet lost all except a small portion of his i
furniture, amounting to 500; Imurcd for $.'1(I ,
Fred C. Edwards saved some of his furniture and
wearing apparel. Ills loss is about SC00; insured
in the Vt. Mutual fur $350 on house, and $260 on
Emory Farnworth'shoue was occupied by him
self, A. I). Corlis, nud another family. They nil
saved most of their furniture in a damaged condi.
tlon. Mr. Farnsworth's loss on his house shop and
tools will range from $2000 to $2500; insured for
$900 in Windham County Mutual.
Tho old dwelling houses owned by Isaac Hlnci,
and occupied by Irish families ere destroyed.
They were insured in tho Vt. Mutual for SSOO,
which was about their value.
The dwelling houtc near the bridge owned by
Nathan Woodcock, and and occupied by J. Ilrittou
and a Mr. Ilartlctt was a total less, amounting to
$2,600 ; insured In tho Vt. Mutual for S 1,200.
The dwelling house belouging to llrury Weath
erhc.nl and the Estato of Emory Sawyer, wore
somewhat damaged. Their los U fully cou'red by
Insurance in the Vt. Mutual, we be!icc.
The unaccupicil store owned by Capt. S. Uoot
was lalued at $2,000; it was insured in the
Windham County Mutual for $1,000.
From tho above data it will be seen that proper- 1
ty to nearly the amount ofu humlrcd thoutand dot. I
lari has been destroyed. The estimates in sumo !
cases may seem high, but they are lower than the
lowest figures given by the sufferers. This is hy
far the severest blow tint has ever befallen r.ur I

If they had had any means of dragging their en
gine through the sand more encieut than horse
power, they would have been on the ground at an
earlier hour. The hose attached to water power in
Hincs, Newman & Co. 's shop did excellent erv lee.
Tho origin of tho fire is, liketh.it of the other
conflagrations that have visited us during tho past
two years, a mystery, beyond the presumption that
it was the work of an Incendiary. It was first seen
in tho ware room of the cabinet factory, but It soon
shone frcm every window in the building. Fortu
nately it was a still night, otherwise a large por
tion of our villago would h.ivo been laid in ruins.
Hydropath Engine Co., wero absent from town
tho first night since its organization. They were
nt Worcester attending tho firemen's muster.
Much difference of opinion as to the policy cf such
an absence was cxpicsscd. It is a subject we shall
not now discuss. We venture to say that when
tho Hydropaths learn of this cal unity their great
est regret will bo that they wero not here to anslst
their brethren in tlier labors, tud to protect the
property of their townsmen.

believe that they will be sutfered to remain dor
mant, but that their enterprising proprietors will
renew them In a new and moro enduring form.
Every citizen should put his shoulder to tho wheel
and do all in his power to rebuild tho business
which has been temporarily extinguished.
We arc happy to add that no accident of any
note to life or limb occurred during the conflagra

about 14 years of age. and a daughter of John El
lis of Westminister, attempted tuicldc by hanging
herself at that place, on the 2nd Inst. She is said
to have' stolen a sum of money, amounting to a
huudred dollais or more, from L. P. Ward, Sho
afterwards went Into Aldrich's store with a New
Jcrsy hill to exchange, Mr. A. suspecting that all
was not right questioned her in relation to where
sho obtained the money. Her manner was embar

in a bed whero she had hidden it. The discovery
so mortified her that she hung herself. Her boely
was dlscovcied soon after and cut down, nnd witli
considerable efl'orts was resuscitated.
