Deputy Sheriff Crawford attempted to make a seizure of liquor in Wooley's saloon on Friday, and had, as he sup posed, made a big haul. On consulting his warrant, however, he found that it had been made out against Charley Cushman instead of Wooley, and the booty was dropped like a hot potato. He then visited Cushman's groggery and captured some ale, the proprietor of i the place pouring the test of his liquor on the floor. A small seizure was also made at Ceph Stone's. Several selections from the music used by Messrs. Moody and Sankey in their revival work were sung at the Con gregational church Sunday.

Brooks of New York- to M3ct :Sarah;"A.:'Piercv step-daughter of Charles Sheldon; Esq. The church 'was -lighted by- a triple arch of gas burners' over the pulpit, in addition-to the ordinary jets, the effect of which was to throw a bright' light on 1he wedding-parly, as they came down the aisle and took their places. If. was certainly a very untisual and a very biil- liant party. The ushers,' Col, -a7.ey, Messrs. II. F. Field, S. : W.-.-Ro.well, Waldo r. Clement, K L. Temple, AteM bald Sheldon, Richard Sheldon, and Will Sheldon, preceded the marriage group lhis consisted of the step brothers of the bride with their wives, also a brother Of the bridegroom with his wife. 'Then came Air. Urooks with Mrs. Sheldon. and the bride on the arm of her step father. Thd ceremony was performed by Rev. Mr. Johnson and the company left the church to the music of the or gan. Prof. Mietzke presided at the or gan with more than his' usual effective ness. . The reception at the house of Mr. Sheldon was select and very elegant. The house was so large that, though many "were there, the pressure of the crowd was not feit, and it would be hard to suggest an additional feature that could have ' added an' element of 8BCCC3S. It was as nearly perfect as we are permitted to see, Certainly we do not expect to see more beauty and grace until we reach that sphere where men are not married nor given in marriage. That most hosv-itable house has seen , many happy ana brilliant gatherings, but certainly none hjis ' ever surpassed this. There waa but one thought that broke the spell. It all means that a light has gone out of this house and out of Rutland that will be greatly raised. The fact that it shines elsewhere does not lessen our loss. changed to East Charlotte,' land .villi?. .Nancy E. -Pope . appointed e,"lahd iMrs, Qr lifiant 'WeddlfigrWeiBptrft.-at postmistress: . , . ; ; - - - : M iddtetou ; ,5 : c'-,V-,:: lb wV S-y :I he-. w.edding-.recepiion,';. vhp;.

Putnam of Ludlow, and Hazleton of Cavendish.' On Sunday his right leg was amputated near the hip. It 'was a most difficult surgical operation, but the sufferer had not vitality enough to rally, and died at midnight; It seems that Mr. Mhler did not know that the locomotive had taken an extra train to the Summit, and not expecting its return, had no time Jo get out of the way.

Y., on ti 37th, was born in the county ot Antrim, Ireland, in 17?G, and graduated from Belfast College in "iSli, coming to the United States 60on afterwards and becoming principal of the academy at Benning ton, Yt. After spending some little time in the study of law he turned to the ministry, and was soon installed f.B pastor of a Baptist church at Benning ton. In 1835 he removed to New Ycrk, where, before he permanently settled at Newtonville, he had charges at, among other places, Schenectady, Lansing burgh and West Troy. In literary cir cles be waa best kuown as the editor of the Antiquarian, tn4 Ijp author of a curious book on "Family Barnes." Dr. Arthur leaves seven children, one of his two sons being the collector of New York. Sunday School Concert at Pitts ford. The Sunday School concert, which oc curred at the Methodist church.Pittsford, Sunday evening, was very interesting. The weather was not propitious, but the audience filled tha phurch.

' w We noticed the passage of through Uutlaud, who were being taken from Sing Sing, N. Y., to Dannemora prison in the same State. On the ar rival of the train at Middlebury, three or the prisoners having . freed them selves from the handcuffs and chains which bound them, leaped from the car windows and attempted an escape; the car standing at the time on the bridge near the depot. One of them was cap tured before he had hardly cleared the car, another was shot, while the third jumped into the river and escaped. The wounded man was roughly dragged into the .car and thrown on the floor, and report says that he was nearly dead when the train reached Essex Junction. During the escape seven shots were tired, and two of them struck the bag gage car, barely missing the baggage master and the express agent. The keepers ia charge of the convicts tele graphed to Sheriff Tripp, of Middle bury, from Essex Junction, requesting him to use every endeavor to capture the rnieoin prisoner. The sheriff found the place where the man had crawled out of his ice-cold bath, and also his cap, and a little further on his tracks were seen leading through a field. lb re the trail was lost, and according to latest accosts io capture had been made. Fl'RTnEF. DETAILS. The following additional particulars our Middlebury correspondent send us ln's morning, as tne car load ot con Sing Sing to the Dannemora prison, ar rived at this place two of them slipped their irons and escaped from the car, whi.-h was stauding in the bridge at the time. One ran tact across the bridge and got away, although shot at by the officer four or five times. The other ran around the back side of the railroad woodshed aud started up town, the ofli cer roUowiu;, and, after several shots, he was crippled aud taken back to the cars. Whether he was dangerously wounded or not no one here knows. There is a rumor that he is dead, but it is ex ceeding doubtful. Sheriff Drew received a telegram from Essex Junction, for him to follow the one which escaped. He tracked him on the railroad, and scattered the news, so that all might be on the lookout fo r him. Later. A.bout 3 p. m. he was seen by some residents about three miles up the creek, and was chaaed into the swamp. Help was summoned and word sent to the sheriff, who immediately went up there, ind arrived just ia time to see them fetching him out. He had swam the creek, and was so cold that he could not run. Mr. Tripp took care to place him iu a warm and comfortable room with the four other county Woarders, where our reporter interviewed him He says he is in prison on a charge of assault and battery with intent to kill ; that he was a resident of Sing Sing, na tive of Ireland and was sentenced for fifteen years, twenty-seven months of which have passed. He also said that the fellow who was vitb, him had been 1 for about two months, and came from New York City, and tnat tLe ether fellow sawed the chains apart, but about him he knew nothing more. ;' U-'dflw-'isist; ;TUe buildi f-W.:Vea-fatte;qrbe .boiler j . from one : who ; ,tas :; j ust asuiwd 1 L mz '-IB- sefiht-icfc' 'tlree.rsi.or(ea--.h1iiL-;am1 1 f f-egnlatia'tflv'jrotittlrlnir". no- aitmiLl highest education! rkwitioo in wir vi.

He Bccmed tq be iu favor of some kind of waterworks, and said there was no end to the advantages of having them. A. P. Tupper, Esq., and Mr. J. Buttolph spoke against it, and thought it would be utter ruin to the town to attempt any such thing. Mr. Strong, of Vergenues, at the re quest of several gentlemen of Middle bury, was present at the meeting to de scribe the works of that town and to answer any questions that might be asked. After discussing the question for an hour and a half the meeting adjourned until two weeks from that night. There is some excitement in town over the sub ject. F. Supposed Case of Qrowning.

Ex ceptions were taken by tb defendants and the case should have )een tried at tha August term of the S preme Court, but was then continual ; r the reason that Henry Oviatt, tbe oicial court re porter had failed to farni-li the counsel with a copy of the tei imony in the case. At this term f the Court the same reason wis urged for the continuance, and the Court severely censured Mr. Oviatt for not having fur nished the counsel with the testimony. The Chief Justice siij : This case ougbt to have been ready for hearing, but it can't be heard without the testimony. The counsel have done aH they could to get the testimony. The fault is with the reporter, over whom this Court has no control. No reason has been assigned, and undoubtedly none exist, why the re porter has not furnished the testimony. We find this same difficulty iu all the counties where he reports. He don't furnish the copies. He should furnish copies or should cot be employed. J ua tice Barrett remarked to counsel : If you should ask for an order to abate this nuisance of a reporter, we should ,te willing to grant it. It has existed f r several years and is unendurable. it is understood that since this cjn sure from the Supreme Court, Hctry Oviatt has tendered his resignation; to Judge Hedfield, who employs him, iid it will undoubtedly be accepted.

He said the Bible was the only book which taught man to connect this world and its experience with the world to come, and these experiences mean nothing but as they are connected with God. It is tbe only book which reconciles the misery about us with God's mnrfness.1 It alone points him to his Savior.

It is fin ished in front in the same general man ner as the Nichols and Mead block, and the two blocks bear the appearance at a distance, of being one continuous build ing. The store fronts are similar, the wiudows of each story correspond, and the brick cornice on top is the same. Fronting on Center street, the building extends Go feet, and reaches back CO feet. It is set on a heavy stone founda tion -the side and rear basement walls are of brick and the front stone. The building is divided into three sections by two brick walls which run from the basement floor up through the building, and extend above the roof. The stores are three in number separated by these brick walls the center one 24 x 58 lett and those pn each side 10 x 58 each. The basements connept with the 6tores. The stores are commodious and well lighted ; the ceiling is 13 feet high j they are easy of access from a splendid side walk, and are altogether very desirable stores. The second lloor is divided into handsome and convenient offices and suites of rooms, aud the story is to be used for tenements. Each section is separated by the above mentioned brick walls, in which there is set an iron door on each floor. In the rear of the building at each story is erected a sub stantial balcony, eight feet wide, which is a great convenience for the occupants, and has a closed flight of stairs, reaching from story to story, and from the lower story to the ground, 'there is plenty of yard room in the rear, which is reached by a carriage entrance from Willow street. The roof of the building is of tin ; hard finish plaster throughout, and the wood work is of pine, painted white. This building is in good location and offers excellent advantages for the storekeep er, the professional man or the house keeper. Persons in want of rooms for either purpose would do well to exam ine this block. Putnam acd Sawyer's Block.
