Tin: New York Sun starts the suspicion
that Hie next Congress means to restore the
franking privilege. Tlie Sun has been
charged w Itli sensationalism, but its Credit
Mobilicr il!cowry turned out to be gen
uine ; and for a paper that hunts giiniu a
great deal it Is not suipiisingif it sometimes
gets on the wrong scent. It may be quite
true, and many people haw feared It from
the first, that the repeal of the frankin,
privilege was only n letting down of bars
to drive tlie incie.ise salary and back pay
through, mid that the next session would
restore the franking privilege. People
may pooh, pooh! and say Nonsense! Yet
tin! restoration of tlie franking privilege
may come. If so, tlie next Congressional
election will surely witness a Btnigglo to
elect members of Congress pledged to re.
store tho salary to 5,000. Resolutions to
that effect are already adopted iu many
Western states.
Tlie movement first referred to Is de
signed to restore only the franking of pub
lic documents, 'lids was tlie greatest ahueo
of tlie whole privilege. The congressman
for this district, Hon. C. W. Willard, had
but seven copies of tlie Medical History of
the War, and hut OH copies of tho ngricul
turul report. This could scarcely be con
sidered printing books for tho Information
of the people. It was it soro puzzlo to
know what It was best to do with theso
books. They must bo placed, as far as
they would go, but, place them as they
would, they could not bo of general ser
vice, and must Inevitably occasion more or
less disappointment among his friends. So
it Is not probable that congressmen are
starting up what can bo little less than an
annoynnco to them. It is likely there Is a
Washington printing nng that feels Injur
ed by tho repeal. Whllo It cost nothing I
to send books nwny, Congress felt carclesB
about voting money for printing. Conse

defence Is a two-edged Instrument. Under

Friday twenty-six letters from Mansfield
Walworth to his wife were read by Mr.

and threats to murder her. These letters
had nil been perused by his coming fate,

These unpretending words chronicle the
death of Vermont's most famous son, and
the woild's most distinguished nitlsl,
whose career honoicd his native state and
whose statues form a noble part of the
woild of art. Our commonwealth has
produced many sons wlio bine gained for
themselves distinction In vmlnu rtiallons,
but It was reserved for Illrnm Powcrs.boin
of humble paicntage, among our beautiful
mountains, to develop that genius of cie
ativu ait, which should oiitstilp them nil,
and when death comes hard upon the al
lotted measure of life, tlucc scoie and ten,
the whole civilized win hi recognizes his
name, and honors his fame.
llirutn Powers was born at Woodstoik,
Vermont, July 29lh, 1H05. He was iu the
sixty-eighth year of ids age, nnd had his
life been prolonged but n few weeks longer
he would haw completed that pciiod of
life, lie was the eighth child of a family
of nine children. He received the educa
tion of the Vermont boys at that day in
tliedlslilct schools, (hiding lclsiuo occa
sionally to learn the art of drawing. Ills
family rcniowd to Ohio, and on tlie death
of his father soon after, tlie future sculptor
wns thrown upon bis own resources. Ho
established himself in Cincinnati, wiieie he
was successively employed in a leading
loom connected with cue of the hotels, nnd
a clerk in a produce stoic wiieie he re
mained until Ids employer failed. He af
terwards engaged with a clock maker, but
heasphed to some higher branch of tlie
arts. From a German sculptor he learned
the nrt of modelling In plaster, nnd for
seven years he directed the wax work de
partment of the Western Museum at Cin
cinnati. In 18o.i he went to Washington,
where ho was some time ptofltably employ
ed in modelling busts of distinguished men.
Through the assistance of ids patron Nich
olas Longwoilli, ol Cincinnati, lie was
enabled to go to Florence, arriving in the
Italian city for the ilrst time in the year
1837, where he has since resided. He im
mediately applied himself to his studies,
nnd in 187;l produced nu lde.il statue of
"Eve" of which tlie Florentine critics said
that It " promised great things," and it was
nt once accepted as a successby the artistic
world. Thorwnlsden, tho great master,
pronounced "live a work which any
sculptor might bo proud to claim as Ids
masterpiccp. This was followed In 183!)
by the "-Greek Slave," his most popular
work, of widcli ho has made several dupli
cates, one of which is in Vermont inaible.
This is an cnduiing monument of Mr
Powers' truly Ameiican genius. Its
exhibition at the Woild's Exhibition in
London in 1857, placed his name high up
and indelibly on the roll of artists of fame
and honor. Among his other well-known
works aie the " Fisher Hoy," Proserpine,"
a bust, " California," America, modelled
for the Crystal Palate, Sydenham, Eng.
land, a bronze statue of Webster, now
elected in the State House grounds at Dos
ton, nnd portrait statues of Washington and
of Calhoun. Tho latter, his best work of
the kind, after being shipwrecked on Long
Island, was safely deposited in Char
leston. Among oilier nunitioiis busts aio
thoseof Adams, Jackson, Marshall, Everett
and Van Durcn. Mr. Powers was the In
yentor of a useful process of modelling in
plaster which obviates tlie necessity of
taking a clay model. Shortly niter tho
first Doston fire lie wrote n very practical
letter concerning (Ire-proof buildings, hi
the course of which lie stated that no dwel
ling had been burned hi Florence during ids
residence there of thirty-seven years. There
arc many oilier works It would be pleasant
to notice, but It must he deferred until
another aitlcie.
It is a source of regret thnt while this
great son of our mountains lias produced
the finest woiks of art to adorn the cap!
tols, libraries and museums of nrt in tlio
old nnd new world, Vermont bus failed to
procure any specimen of ids skill, even to
adorn tho capltol of her historic places, to
which she can point ns a monument of the
genius of her distinguished son. it w ill be
remembered that a few years since, when
Congicss uppropilatcd tho old Rcproscnta
tlws Hall, at Washington, as a gallery of
art, in which weie to bo placed tho statues
of two of tho distinguished citizens of each
state, senator .Mouill urged upon our
Legislature, iu nn elaboieto icport, tho
employment of Mr. Powers to make a
statue either of Ethan Allen or Judge Col
lamer, to bo wrought out of Vermont
marble. This work Mr. Powers offered to
do for his uutlve state at n very reasonable
compensation which ho intended to niako
the best woik of his life. The piopoaitlon
w as rejected iu the House by a huge ma
jority. He went to Ids grave without the
recognition of his great services by his na
tive state with which his name will ever
be associated as her most cclchinted
son. This fact Is not honorable to our
commonwealth or the spirit of its people.
The citizens of Florence were proud of
Mr. Powers as a citizen. He had built for
himself a beautiful home iu tho suburbs
ot the city. Ho loved ids adopted country
hut lie loved also America. All American
citizens, especially Vermontcrs, vMtlng,
Florence were assured of n cordial wclconio
at Ids dwelling. A gentleman who visited
him a few years since, said at that time,
"he uppenred to have many years of woik
hi mm, though his hair had been touched
a little by thno. His form wns erect nnd
bis cyo us brilliant as over, and the good
old Vermont etamlnl iu him, lie thought,
would carry him through for many long
years to come, and prayed that the crca
tions of his genius might bo moro numerous
nnd If possible still moro brilliant."
Tho famo of n sculptor Is unattended by
tho popular furoro which accompanies that
of a military chieftain or a statesman, but
Mr. Powers' reputation camo quickly and
will be brilliant and enduring. Although it
Is not associated with great parade. It was
such ns could have been earned only by a
man of great genius and ability. "His
name nml his fame belong to the brother
hood of the world," and whether his bones
limy rest In the charming city of Florence
or amid his native mountains iu the beauti

Meadow street, a block and a half south

labors and unceasing care much of tlie suc

the church as It now stands, designing to

The tower is surmounted by nn elegant nnd

presents an Imposing appearance from
every part of our town nnd sin rounding

the most stnkiiig feature of our village as
seen in every direction nnd from every

tibule of the church is wide, roomy and
well arranged and gives tlie means of
entrance to the body of tho house in tlie
same number of doors ns upon the outside,
each of which leads up a separate nlsle.
Over this vestibule Is tho gallery from
which stairs lead you from either side.
When once inside tho church a splendid
panorama of beauty nnd architectural

Spacious and lofty in area, grand nnd nr

Is not to bo equalled by any church in
Vermont, while but very few excel It in
wide New England. The special beauty
is displayed in the frescoing of tho walls
of the chancel nnd chapel itself. The oil
paintings, live in number, me of extra
ordinary excellence nnd must be seen to bo
appreciated. The centre painting iu tho
chancel is one of tlie largest in Ilio United
States and is made to represent tlie scene
of "Tho Last Judgment." The dimensions
are 00x28 nnd it contains two bundled and
slxly.foiir figures life-size, some of which
are six feet in circumference. On tlie cast
sldo of the church and just outside of tlie
chancel rail Is tiio representation of "Tho
Annunciation" whllo on tho opposite sido
Is a picture of "Tlie Holy Family" repre
senting Christ ns a child engaged at his
father's trade and seated at tho feet of his
parents. Inside of tho chancel, on the
cast sldo Is tho painting of "Tho Nntlvity"
and on tlie west sldo Is tho llgtnoof "Tlie
Hcsurrection of Christ from thcSepulchro"
Theso paintings me executed by Messrs.
Lang it Klnkelln of New Yoik, and arc of
a superior order of merit, outrivaling any
thing of the kind in any church of our
country. Tho figures represented stand
out so prominently they nro easily seen
across tho church, while a nearer view ndds

but fow such paintings do, Tho frescoing
of tho walls and ceilings wns performed by
Mr. A. Forester of New York nnd finely
executed throughout, nddlug greatly to tho
honutlfuf effects of tlie church.
The windows of the chancel bear
well executed figuics,tbo centre representing
tho ascension of Christ unto Heaven on
tho ent window nro tho figures of Saints
Joaclm nnd Ann, and on the w est the figures
of Saint Joseph and the Dlesscd Virgin.
The east chapel window bears tho figure of
Saint Patrick and tho west window the
picture of St. Peter, the patron saint of tho
church. Theso were executed by Morgan

Ono of tho principal features of tho
church Is tho altar.whlch is of extraordinary
workmanship. The design of thts Is In
keeping with tho Gothic architecture of the
building itself, nnd was executed by
Messrs. Smith A: Crane, of New York. It
is made of pine, richly decorated with
gold leaf beautifully carved, and painted a
modest white. The fine symmetry of its

lighting up the paintings have twenty-nlno
jets each, making in all throughout tlie
building two hundred and clghty-flvo beau

n scene of dazzling splendor.
The church has a seating capacity of
from fourteen hundred to fifteen hundred
persons, with a gallery capable of scaling
one hundred. The pews, chancel rail and
general wood-work through tlie church is
the work of Mr. J. AV. King, of Hutland.
Everything about which is very satisfac

under tlie sun may well feci proud of, com
prises some fourteen hundred persons.
The old church has long been found too
small to accommodate the numbers that
have steadily increased year by year
and they now have succeeded in achieving a
fine success In the erection of a com
niodious place of worship sufllclent to hold
them all. The cost of this structure Is
computed at JIOO.OOO.
On Yesterday, as had previously
been announced in the Oi.oiie tlie conse
craliou of tins church occurred ami was
attended by interesting and impressive ser.
vices. At the hour of eleven hi tlie morn
Ingn large assemblage numbering some fif
teen hundred people were at the Church nnd
ns the doors were thrown open tlie body of
the house nnd galleries were immediately
filled to their full capacity. The cliurcl
was elaborately and beautifully decorated
for tho occasion, with flowers of every va
riety tastefully arranged about tho altar,
festooned amid the architectural designs of
the house and hung about tlie walls In nn
artistic and lavish manner, giving to the
pictures and frescoing a beautifying effect
nnd lighting up tho attractive features of
tho interior in magnificent style. Although
the day wns intensely warm outside tho
many opportunities of ventilation throu
tlie house excluded the rays of the sun as
well as gave free course to the coolin;
breezes, thus preventing the sullocathi
effects of the heat usually expected in so
large a crowd on such a day.

Tho choir rendered Peters' Grand Mass In

Tlio JUiluciitiMl IHiiu it I'uH'i'r,
The valedictory oration at the graduatlii;
exercises of the Hutland high school, Juno
Wc all acknowledge the educated man
to bo a power; but what Is tills which we
call a power? It is the Influence of ono
mind over another, the power we have to
mane another person think and leel nswo
do. Aim when this sort ot power Uses to
its height, it becomes controlling over
masses of minds, nnd enables its possessor
to sway them at his will. Tills is the pow
er of the orator, nnd It wns shown to n
wonderful degree by Patrick Henry in his
memornnio speech ociorclhe convention nt
Hlcliinond. Before ho began nearly all of
the assembly were In favor of submitting
to tlie unjust treatment of Great Britain ;
nut he spoke with such eloquence nnd pow
er, that, as be finished witli the memorable
words "give me liherty or give me death,
there was not a person in the house who
did not feel that now was the time for them
to show their mother country that she was
to rule them no longer, but 'that they were
to bo a free people, and have equal rights
and privileges. Jefferson says that Patrick
Henry seemed to Iihn to speak as Homer
wrote, nnd one other who heard him in a
real dehate, when lie wore a diamond
ring, exclaim unconsciously, "that diamond
is mazing unilouiitcdiy a large part ol
his success against such odds ns lie
encountered in the commencement of
bis career, wns due to his great
moral courage. To that mysterious
eloquence which swayed and took captive
nil minds, be united u nerve nnd resolution
which when thoroughly moused was
wholly invincible. But this power is not
confined to tho orator alone. The General
exercises it on tho field of battle when iiy
his commanding presence, the Individual
wills of a whole arm- become one, nnd are
moved in obedience to him. Wu all know
how successful Washington was as n Gen
eral ; it was owing to this power of his,
that even when it was almost certain death
to obey his commands they were neverthe
less obeyed without (Inching. Again in
our late war we remember the wonderful
power which Sheridan showed In slopping
a whole army m retreat and then leadin
them to a glorious victory, This Influence
of mind over mind is what wo mean by
power but our proposition is that this pow
er must lie educated. For tliouch it Is
indeed a gift of nature yet in order to reach
its greatest height it must be developed nnd
improved by education. Then what Is
Education ? It is that which leads out the
powers, which trains and disciplines tlie
mind, nnd ns the body is developed by ex
ercise, so nlso is tho mind. The exercise
which the mind needs to develop It Is
study und no man enn lm iiliicalca
and havo power without applying himself
to hard study. He must do tills, not only
during his school days, but through life, as
tills education is not entirely confined to
uooks, as so many think, borne ol the
most important things In life are learned
only by experience. Thus there is n
strength, a steadfastness of purposo which
w c can attain only as wo learn to overcome
iiiiucuitics ami never let iiiem get tne nct
ter of us. Wc should attempt to do noth
ing till wo have counted the cost, but after
having once begun a lawtul work, we
should carry it through without llinching,
even If it take all our strength. This pow
er can bo learned only by experience. So
that our education is but just beginning
when our school days are oyer. Ifwedc
slro to have infiiienec in the world and be
of some use, not only to ourselves but to
mankind, wo must educate this power
wnicn wc an nave to a greater or less de
gree, and for which wo are all responsible

day we shall be called to give an account
of the talents which have been entrusted to
us, and then, if not before, shall we wish

if we have not done so, nnd be thankful if
we snail there nnd that they havo not been
wnony unimproved, isow that wo as a
class arc nbout to leave this school, let us
remember that wo are but entering a dif
ferent department and that our education
Is not finished. We desire to thank our
several teachers for tlie patience and kind
ness which they havo shown to us, and
wherever wo may lie in after years, we

L'mi Among; the Jurors.
On a recent afternoon a recalcitrant
Teuton, whose eighteen years' sojourn in
this country has taught him but little of
the peculiar advantages and disadvantages
of tho system, wandered aimlessly into
Judge Booth s court and took n seat, re
garding with awe-born reverence the Amerl

was being impaneled, nnd eleven (rood nnd
trusty men had already been secured. The
twellth iuror, however, could not bo pro
cured, nnd tho advent of the Teuton was
hailed with delight. A few deftly-put
questions soon snoweii that he was a lit
and proper person to fill tho vacancy, and
the Judge ordered him to lie pressed into
service. The bailiff of the court explained
to tne new comer mat tne licrman auxiliary
was wanted to till up the jury, hut -Vir,

" Mein vif vnits for me at home, nnd

made for the door. The bailiff made
a counter-movement, in winch the un
lucky German was nearly impaled on
tne spiKcu quadrangular that daily
threatens with evisceration all parlies at
tendine at this court, and staved his pro
gress. A tussle ensued, in which Schaler
