r THE RUTLAND WEEKLY ..HERALD, THURSDAY, INQYEMBER 30 1876 -SUPPLEMENT. RE RUTLAND HERALD 2yNew York un takes the aenBible and fair view that If it shall be found, on an inspection of the certificates of the electoral colleges, when they are opened in the presence ot the two house?, that Mi. Hayes ha received 185 votes, or more, that result must be accepted by the people as the legal result, whatever may have been the frauds committed in Louisiana or any other State in taking or returning or counting the popular vote. Fraud may be punished. Those guilty of it may be held to account. But the election must ttand. The Sun there fore will oppose "any dispute of the regular electoral certificates from any State." Ttis is the only logical position. The night after election, Wisconsin was the State which turned the scales in favor of Tilden on the figures claimed by the Democrats. But the returnB now show that the regular Republican ma jority on electors is about 6,300, and on that elector in whose name an error oc curred, the majority is over 1,200. This is the State on which, '.for two days, Governor Tilden hung his hopes of elec tion. It was only when those hopes failed him that he turned to Louisiana and Florida. JNow mention Wisconsin to a genuine Democratic politician,and he will become as aDgry as if you tell him Florida has voted for Hayes. is to be hoped that the duties of these staff officers may, like their more im mediate predecessors, be of the orna mental character, but should the turn of events unhappily bring about national troubles, we confidently predict that they will not be found lacking ia either energy, discretion or bravery.

We hope that these speeches will continue to be to favorite subjects of declamation in our schools and col leges. A tbivate letter received in Provi dence from Columbia, S.

' hi i The Housa has done a sensible thing in voting to pay Mr. Sprague for erect ing the bulldiEg on , tho Centennial grounds." The money which was con tributed to fcupport, should aleo be paid by the State, and Mr. Patterson should be remuneiated for his services to the people of the State as Superintendent of this building.

Here was exposed for sale more "olive wood from the Mount of Olives" than that sacred eminence ever produced, and when it is known that the very little olive timber remaining there is jealously guarded from the woodman's ax, the barefacedness of the imposition, and the gullabilify of the American people are apparant. Not content with gathering what they could from the sale of their wares to such as were willing to purchase, very much as if for the purpose of levying black mail, they Boon commenced to make frequent arrests from among the bystanders, charging the persons So arrebted with theft. One young man from Vermont was so arrested and locked up on the testimony of a Centennial guard, who the sargent avowed was less to ba be lieved than the person arrested. The case was reported to me the next morn ing, and I at once set about to do what could be done for the boy. Hon. Ray Hard of Burlington, Joseph D. Deni son of Royalton, Gen. Foster, Gen. Henry, and some others, interested themselves immediately, and repaired to the district attorney's office to find that the grand jury had found a true bill, and that the district attormy could not enter a nolle pros in the case. This threw the matter into the Criminal Couit, where the young maa had to stand his trial next morning, with Hon. Ray Hard counsel for defendant. By production of evidence which was secured in the boy's behalf, a verdict of acquittal was secured, but it became veiy evident that but for the facilities which could only have concentrated 8t the State head quarters building, this innocent young Vermonter would, upon the testimosy of a Turkishf"haier, and an ill savored policeman, hi E ,een sent to prison for ninety days'! 1- e have had occasion to care for a utVt'ijr 0f Vermonters, who were part uby F eercome by the heat of the summer, have aaminietered a very considerable 'quantity of paregoric ana laudanum to those needing such medicine. Our reading room was fur nished gratuitously with the regular issues of fifty-two newspapers and peri odicals, principaliy from Vermont, and they were at all times eagerly read by our visitors, who expressed great satis taction at find'mg their home papers be fore them. We were especially fortu nate in the selection of our clerk, Major Ellis, who was at all times most assidu ous in his'attention to his duties," and in politeness to our. vititors. who, ' I am fully convinced, with very few. except tiocs (if any) returned well pleased with the facilities offered by the Vermont Headquarters, and thankful to Colonel Sprague for his enterprise and generosity, in providing the same. , The moneyd expended for furniture and current ex penses wew intended to come from private subscriptions to "the titizens' fund," of which your honored State treasurer was the disbursing agent.

JEstey, are es teemed members of the Legislature and are not novices la military service, the former having an enviable record as an officer of the Tenth Vermont, and. the latter as one of the best and most paint takine militia officers in the State.

On the register of tbe Vermont House she discovered his name and the place at which he was stopping. We gave her facilities for reaching him, and afterwards that couple "did the Centennial" ia company.

V y -r,,f; no as follows ; Miss Boom has been liv ing .with ; Boo-little in, the . capaeity of housekeeper ror the past .four years, ing alone with, him a good febartj; of the time. On the morcjng of . August .24, finding that she was about tq ; become a mother, she hurried over to the house of Mr. E. H. Sawtelle, a distance of over a half-mite (this being in the town of Hinsdalel and arousing Mrs.' Sawtelle, it being between 5 and 6 o'clock in the morning. She was helped into the house and into the bed just . vacated by Mrs. Sawtelle, where she was delivered of a healthy . female child. Mrs. Saw telle, being an . experienced midwife, carea tor the mother ana cmiu ia a proper manner, at the same; time pend ing for Dr. Dix, who came and pro nounced both mother and ehiid out of danger, and left. Soon after the doctor left, Doolittle came and was shown the baby, when he exclaimed, f Why in hell didn't the doctor take care of it ?" Doolittle . then went " into - the . room where the mother and child lay on the bed, the latter sleeping quietly, shut the door and was in there nearly a half-, hour with . them, when he came out. Mrs. Sawtelle, who in the meantime had: been busy about the house, then went into the room, and found the babe lying on its face, with a' handkerchief tied tightly about its head, and she said, " Why, Nellie, . what " .' have you been : . doiag '. to. . ; the : baby f.-".

The babe was then put; into a salt box, after being wrapped in the handkerchief and in another cloth, taken to. the woods and buried, Mrs. Sawtelle consulted with her husband in regard to ; making the matter known to the authorities, and af ter ten or twelve days had passed, Hiram Doolittle and Ellen A.

The boys of the generation to which I belonged that ii to say, who were born in the last years of the last century or the earliest of this were brought up under a system of discipline which put a far greater distance between parents and their children than now exists. The pa rents seemed to think this necessary in order to secure obedience. They were believers in the old maxim that famili arity breeds contempt. My own parents lived in the house with my grandfather and graadmother on the mother's Bide. My grandfather was a disciplinarian of the strictest sert, and I can hardly find words to express the awe in which I stood of him an awe so great as almost to prevent anything like affection on my part, although he was in the main kind, and, certainly, never thought of being severe beyond what .was necessary to maintain a proper degree of order ia the family. The other boys in that part of the country, my schoolmates and play fellows, were educated on the same sys tem. Yet there were at that time some indications that this very severe discip line was beginning to relax. With my father and mother I was on much easier terms than with my. grandfather. If a favor was to ba asked of my grandfath er, it was asked with fear and trem bling ; the request was postponed to the last moment, and then made with hesi tation and blushes and a confused utter ance. One of the means of keeping the boys of that generation in order was a little bundle of birchen rods, bound together by a small cord, and generally suspend ed on a nail against the wall in the kitchen. Thii was esteemed as much a part of the necessary furniture as the crane that hung in the kitchen fire-place or the shovel and tongs. It sometimes happened that the boy suffered a fate similar to that of the eagle in the fable, wounded by.aa arrow fledged with a ftather from his wU - wm'io. other words, the bQy:w?.s m'ade to ; gather the twigs intended for his own eastigation. It has never been quite clear to me why the birch was chosen above all other trees of the wood to yield its twigs for this purpose. .

It was a spectacle for us next to that of a performer on the tight rope, to see the young men walk steadily on the narrow footing of the beams at a great hight from the ground, or as they stood to catch in their hands the wooden pins and the braces flung to them from below. They vied with each other in the dexterity "and daring with which they went through with the work, and when tho skeleton of the building was put together, some one amoag them gen erally capped the climax ot fearless ac tivity by standing on the ridge-pole with his head downward and hia heels in the air. At that time, even the presence of the minister was no restraint upon the flow of milk-punch and grog3 which in some cases was taken to excess. The practice of calling the neighbors to these 'raisings" is now discontinued in the rural neighborhoods ; the carpenters orovide their own workmen for the bus iness of adjusting the timbersof the new building to each ether, aad there is no consumption of grog. Another of the entertainments of rur t'c life iu the region of which I am speaking was the making of maple su gar. This was a favorite frolic of the boy i. . The apparatus for the sugar camp was of a much ruder kind than is now used. The sap was brought in buckets from the wounded trees and poured into a great caldron which hung over a hot fire from a stout horizontal pole supported at each end by an upright stake planted in the ground. Since that lime they have built in every maple giove a sugar-house a little budding in wi ica the process of making sugar is carried on with several ingenious con trivances unknown at that time, when everything was done iu tho open air. Trom my father's door, in the latter part of March and the early part of April, we could see perhaps a dozen columns of smoke rising over the woods in different places where the work was gotm? on. After the anp Ld bf-tn col lected and bo:tf d fur Ur .or four doya, tho time'cs'ik-v'.vC'httU :. the-"thickening liquid was ustde to raa into the form of sugar.

Ot unkehness, however, f ia: that Uenitire population, was not .obstreperous, ' and the maa who was overtaken : by it ; was generally glad to slink out of sight. "' ' One of the entertainments of the boy a of my time was what were called the "raisings," meaning the erection of the timber frames of houses or barns, to which the boards were to be afterwards nailed, ilere the minister made a point 1 "-T4 ', . ii-n.tVo'ntope.- &c uu puunc worsnio man those who now occupy their places, and of course they took their boys with them. They were not satisfied with the moraing and af ternoon services, but each neigborhood held a third service of his own in the evening. Here some lay brother made a prayer, hymns .were sang by those who were trained at the singing schools, a sermon was read from the works of some orthodox divine, and now and then a word of exhortation was addressed to the little assembly by some one more fluent in speech than the rest. Every parish had its tithing-men, two in number generally, whose business it was to maintain order in the church during divine service, and who sat with a stern countenance through the ser mon, keeping a ti;ilant eye on the boys in the distant pe ws and in the galleries. Sometimes, whea he detected two of them communicating with each other, he went to oae of them, took him by the buttoa, and, . leading him away, seated him beside himself. His power extended to other delinquencies. He wa3 directed by law to see that the Sab bath was not profaned by people wan dering in the fields and angling in the brooks. At that time a law, no longer in force, directed that any pereon who absented himself unnecessarily from public worship for a certain length of time should pav a fine int ) the treasury of the county. I remember several per sons of whom it was Baid that they ha t been compelled to pay this fine, but I do not remember any of them who went to church afterward. For the boys of the present day aa immense number of books have been provided, some of them excellent, some mere trash or worse, but tcarce any are now read which are not of recent date. The question is often asked, What books nad they t rend 70 or 80 years since ? They had books, and some of great merit. There was "Sanfdrd and Merton" and "Littlo Jack"; there was "Robinson Crusoe," with its variations, "The 8". is Family Robinson" and "The New Robinson Crusoe"; there was Mrs. Trimmer's "Kaawledd; of jSutare" aad Bcrqatn's live.'y narratives and;, sketches . "tratislatcd .-'from, the F.-ench ; there was "Philip Quarll" and VVa'ts "Poems for Children," and Bun yan's "Pilgrim's Progree?," and Mrs. JBarbauld's writings, and tho "Miscella neous Poems" of Cowper. Later we had Mrs.. Edgeworth's Parent's As sUtaai" and "Evenings at Home." All these, if njt numerous were at least oftea read, and the frequent reading of few good bocks u thought to bit al k;H-.r s improving as useful in storing the uiiud and teaching one to taLnk ? tbe more cursory reading cf many. Of elementary boons there wa3 ro lack, nor, as I have already intimated, any carcity of private instructors, princi pally clergymer, educatsd tt the col leges. I have here set down such particulars as now cccur to ir e of the employments, the amusement" and the studies amidst which the boy-, of my time grew up and were trained or the duties of manhoo t.
