Orleans County Fair.
The Fair held on last Tuesday was
a decided success. It was the best
by all odds that was ever held in this
county unless we except that held
at Craftsbury and such was the ex
pression made by every one. The
show of cattle and horses was large,
and when we sav that Cleveland's
and Randall's Durhams, and Thos
Baker's Dutch cattle were there, it is
needless to say that there were good
ones. The show of vegetables was
large, and there were the best speci
mens we ever saw. Onions, beets.
turnips, apples, plums, potatoes
squashes, pumpkins, corn, fcc, were
exhibited in great plenty and in great
variety. The State Fair presented
none better. John Way, of Albany
ahowed some nice specimens of apples
and plums, as also did K. S. Howard
of Irasburgh. Chas. P. Ellis, of Bar
ton, presented ten varieties of apples
and Owen Donegan, of Troy, pre
sented seven varieties, among them
the blue Dearmain and Fameuse
which were excellent. lie says
finds no difficulty in raising fruit
other than from the woodpecker and
the borer; trees do not winter-kill.
His orchard is but eleven years old
from the nursery, and he has trees
that bear ten bushels. There was a
fine lot of cheese and butter. Our
friend Hill, ol Irasburgh, sustained
his reputation as a cheese maker, and
Thomas Baker, of Barton, also show
ing some worthy of special mention
one in particular that weighed 150
pounds. In the fancy department,
Chas. D. Robinson, of Newport, pre
sented a crayon sketch of the great
Cholook Fall in the Voseraite Valley,
which, as a work of art will take an
honorable rank, and was greatly ad
mired. Gen. Stannard, of Burling
ton, has purchased it lor $25. Rob
inson has sufficient talent, would he
but apply himself with energy ,to mak
an artist whose name might become
world wide, but like all persons of
genius, he lacks application and force.
Mis3 Emma G. Willard, of South
Barton, also exhibited a nice crayon
drawing of "Innisfallen." But the
most decided works of art, were four
pieces of pastel painting by Miss El
len Drew, of Barton, lately deceased
We heard but one opinion expressed,
and that, too, by competent judges,
which was that they were the most
natural they ever saw. The dog
asleep upon the cushion, was natura
as life. It was her last work before
her sickness. We apprehend it woul
take a miut of money to buy them of
her parents. she was a superior
girl. A splendid piece of worsted
work a dog by Miss Clara Stew
art, of Derby, took our eye, and we
do not la-lieve it can be beaten by
any one. There were other pieces
of worsted work by Miss Stewart,
and all of them most excellent, but
that dog was so natural he could
almost bark. There were several
specimens of hair work, but we could
learn of but one owner to any of them,
and that was by Miss Esther M. Nye,
of Irasburgh, which was very neat
and tasty. We saw many other
things from the hands of ladies that
we would like to mention, but we do
not know who presented them. Par
ker the best shoemaker in the world
took the first premium on calf boots,
and Orrin French, of Glover, says it
was right. French took the other
Our friend A. A. Ripley of Derby fa
vored the people with the sight of a
peck of Seckles pears, which were a
sure witness that Orleans county can
compare favorably with any other in
the state in this branch of fruit cul
ture. Mr. Ripley is up to the times.
Lewis Ford of the Landing showed an
incomparably nice article of undrain-
ed sugar, white, fine and sweet.
He deserved a premium.
There were 427 entries without go
ing to floral hall, where there were
150 entries more. There were 20 en
tries of mares and colts, 17 carriage
horses, 9 saddle horses, 7 pairs match
ed horses and 6 stallions. Notwith
standing the liberal premiums offered
there was but one town team. We
hope to see a stout competition in this
particular next year. The labors of
the various committees were arduous
but they were promptly met and uni
versal satisfaction and good feeling
prevailed among the crowd which nam
oereu not iar irom ovvv. .oeiow is a
complete list of premiums, with the
exception of a few in the floral hall :

among so many good ones. - The
calves of C. G. Doty, A. Cass and W.
J. Hastings were particularly notice
able. The show of horses and colts
was very large and good, but as we
had not time to examine them particu
larly we do not know whose were best
but suppose the various committees
found out. Among the sheep the
Merinos took the lead in numbers, and
were well represented. , Messrs. Col
lins and Bullock exhibited some speci
mens of full blood and grade Cots
wolds, which attracted considerable
attention. Among Mr. Collins lambs
was one six mouths and three days
old, with wool eight inches long hav
ing averaged a growth of one and one"
fourth inches per month since birth.
He also exhibited buck lambs same
age, weighing over one hundred lbs.
each ; among them a pair of twins.
We should have said while speaking
of cattle that the show of oxen and
steers was good. Several pairs of the
oxen weighed Irom 3500 to 4000.

niversary of the Bible Society. Rev.
P. H. White preached a sermon on
Psalms 119th, 129th first clause. An
able and glowing unfolding of the rich
ness and power of the Holy Scriptures
The report of the Treasurer showed
that more had been done to sustain
the Bible Society in the county the
past year than ever before, and yet
there is need.

There is one item in connection
with the premium awarded to Mr. W.
Jackson for the best pair of matched
horses, which ought to be explained, as
a gross swindle was perpetrated upon
the society in obtaining it by Judge
E. G. Babbitt of Greensboro, and an
other man whose name we have not
earned, in order to obtain it. Nei
ther of the horses belonged to Jack
son. One of the hoises belonged to
Babbitt and the other to his confed
erate; they were both driven togeth
er for days before the fair and were
well broke ; they were then placed in
the hands of Jackson to own till after
the fair, and he drew the premium of
$5,00 on a pair of matched horses
that belonged to two other men.
Judge Babbitt was one of the com
mittee and as he was one of the par
ties to this petty meanness he was of
course just big enough as a committee
man to give himself the first premium
as a swindler. We get these facts
from three prominent members of the
it is true. We thought a body of re

The framers of the Reconstruction
Acts, evidently anticipated a sharp
contest in the several Southern States
in the elections for deciding whether
conventions should be held, and for
choosing delegates thereto, and so
they provided the requisite safe
guards. But it turns out that the
enemies of reconstruction have taken
different tack. They make no op
position at all. They stay away from
he polls and endeavor to dissuade
others from voting, with the hope
that the aggregate vote on the ques
tion of holding a convention shall fall
below a majority of the whole number
of registered voters in which case
no convention can be held, and the
whole work has got to be done over
again under some other provision of
Congress. This was the course pur
sued by the anti-reconstructionists in
Louisiana, where it came very near
meeting with success, and also in
Alabama, from which the returns are
now coming in. The policy is openly
avowed by that inveterate secession
sheet, the Charleston Mercury, as fol

"Yes, and took off my hat to it, as vhe

blue, support the tali roof of the nave.
The arched ceiling is divided by groin

itself of deep blue, relieved by ara

colors. Mottoes from the bible are
inscribed in antique illuminated text

the gift of Mr. S. B. Hunt, of Benning
