Ingalls and Bean, who some eight months ago had several horses seized by the custom officers at Newport, and advertised and sold, have lately received a de cision in their favor from the treasury department at Washington, and an order for the refunding of the money, some $960.

Our corres pondent thinks neither oue of these stories are worth bragging about. Just what we think. We guess he means to hit some one in Covevtry. Eye Put Out. On Monday the 5th inst., Moses Kenniston, known as the "old shingle maker," on the moun tain, went to drive a nail, when strik ing a hard blow the nail broke and a piece hit him in the eye, causing it to run out immediately.

He has taken bis logging chains and hun" to the studding to keep th m apart. Healthy. The late revival in some respects seem3 to be a healthy one, a3 there are good evidences of steadfastness from some of those who have expressed a hope of saving grace. Some terrible hard cases here have renounced their sins. The result of the meeting has given an impetus to the temperance movement, and the prospect appears good that the rum ring may be effectively broken. Progeny Never in the history of the town have there been so many births as within the past three or four months. - Almost every house posses es a new baby. NEWPORT. Scarlatina.

Both are in good health and able to labor on their farms to advantage. Good School. They have had a prosperous school in the brick house at the Corner, kept by Miss Burleigh from New Hampshire. She taught the fall term and her success was so great that the prudential committee prevailed on her to keep the winter term. When that closed she com menced a school for the spring with about forty scholars j it is now on its last half' and is going on to the satis faction of all concerned. Latin, Greek and French are taught in the school in addition to the ordinary branches. TROY. Fire. The house and woodshed of Lewis Irwin, living on East Hillf were burned on Saturday morning, April 3d. A small portion of the furn iture was saved. The loss is about $1400.

Baker, who last sum mer drove the stage from Newport to Jay Peak, via Troy, has also strad dled his velocipede, and struck out ou a new route, via luden, Johnson, &c. As the manner of traveling takes well in some places, they will un doubtedly amass stupendous fortunes and soon return to spend their re maining days with us in ease ud op ulence. Steam Mill. W. F. Badger and Wm. Ponnegan have left the employ of ihe steam mill company at this place and rone to Uecbe Plain to run the steam saw mill at that place. Mr Hadger has been in the employ of the .Mill Uo., nere since its commence ment, as engineer, and the new com- any have done well in securing hi.s ervices, as he is fully competent to do the business. Mr. It. Kay is now running his mill with a new set of lands. He has during the winter pur- hased a large number of clapboard ogs, ana oilier iimuer, out owing to the depth of snow in the woods, (we iave not had quite twenty feet, as a correspondent of the Express from North Troy claims has fallen there) a great many have been deterred from linr loss, who otherwise would iave lumbered all winter, thus mak mil toe ousmess ai mis mm auiier than usual this spring. Mr. K. pro oses putting in a new machine with all the modern improvements, then he expects to be able to manufacture clapboards of the very best quality and at prices that cannot fail to suit the purchaser. The mail carrier from this place to Johnson starred with the mail last Monday morning for Johnson, and up to this time (April 9th) has not been heard from, .bears are entertained that he may have lost himself in the snow, or mat tie is waiting in Jiiden woods for wheeling. If he is absent much longer, we fear he will not be rocognizable when he returns. WESTFIELD. Sold. Sextus Lockwood has sold his farm in Troy to L. Leach for $1500, and has moved to Westfield going into the house formerly occu pied by A. bt evens as a shop. Breaking Koad.

He has asked that his salary be re duced from $1600 to 1300, but the Aldermen, with an eye to the success ion, refuse to take off more than $100. The prospects for a fruit crop in the West are becoming better as the season advances. The peach crop of Michigan this year will be the largest ever gathered, and in Southern Illi nois the late frosts only killed off the superfluous buds, which could be spared. Travelers who arrived in Chicago last week over the Michigan Central Railway report that about 75 miles from the city they saw continuous flocks of pigeons, each numbering ap parently millions, and covering a mile or more of space, that whirled by all day, darkening the air like clouds. hey were returning from winter uarters in the South. In consequence of the fears grow- iug out of the lynching operations in eymour, Ind., an ordinance has been adopted which forbids any person to stop there for more than two davg without some regular employment. A lady in Lillian, Minnesota, last week, was presented with four boys at one birth. They lived but forty- eight hours, all dying iu one day, and were buried in one grave. Pittsburg iron manufacturers are said to be crowded with orders. Horrible Murder. The details of the tragedy in Philadelphia add to its horrors. The fact of the triple murder was first know by the receipt of a telep-rarn from Mrs. Blackstone's father, acknowledging the receipt of letter in which Mr. Blackstone sta ted that he had killed his wife and children. The house was immediately ntered through a window, and there were discovered the bodies oi Mrs. Blackstone and her children lying up on the floor, with their heads and part- of their clothing covered with blood. The floor was also covered, and the flow of blood was stopped from run ning into the vard bv a roll of muslin which had been placed in front cf the door, as if purposely intended to keep all evidence of the crime within the room. The kitchen is a very small one, and from appearances Mrs. Black- tone was about kindling a fire in the range when she was deprived of life, her hands being stained with coal-dust The coal had been freshly put on. She lay ut full length on her back, in the middle of the floor. Resting against her knee lay her son, with his face to the floor, while the daugh ter lay with her head upon his shoul der, both in their night-clothes, and all having: evidently been killed a number of hours. - All the circumstances indicate that the wife and ono of the children were killed in ihe kitchen, and the other child as it lay on the lounge in the sitting or diuing room. A pillow on the lounge was covered with blood, and the carpet was saturated with blcod underneath. It was believed the girl had been killed there as sin: partly lay upon the boy. That an ax had been used in inflicting the deep gashes on the wife's face and neck, and upon the neck of the boy, was manifest, as it lay close to them and was very bloody. The wound8 indi cated a state of frenzy on the Dart of the murderer, as the heads were near ly severed from the bodies. And yet nothing else on the premises betoken ed a diseased mind. Every thinsr was in order so far as could be expected in a house in which the family had arisen but a short time before. In the sitting and dining room, between the kitchen and parlor, was a table with a few plates, a goblet or two upon it, and a child s chair was close to it. which contained the girl's clothes as they had been taken from her the even ing previous. After committing the murders, Blackstone wrote a letter to his father-in-law in Connecticut, in forming mm of what he had done, then came down to the city, visited the office of a real estate broker, made an assignment of some property, and then walked to the Deleware, intent upon putting an end to himself. He was arrested by officers who judged from his appearance that he was insane : but breaking away from them, he threw off his coat and hat and plans ed into the river, where he was drown ed. i J - v-- - Keceipts for the Standard FOX THB VUI ENDING APRIL 13, 1869.

We copy the following interesting letter from Dr. Harris to the Middlebury, Vt Register: Mk. Editor: It is only to subserve the in terests of humanity that I request a short space in your valuablepaper to inform the public what Allen's Lung Balsam is sure to do. Two years ago I was attacked with a severe cold ; it settled in my throat, which &o allcctod the organs of speech that I could not speak aloud for nearly six weeks. 1 got through the winter coughing ;iits almost incessantly, with cold night sweats, which increased irritation which extended to the bronchial tubes and which kept me coughing all summer. 1 was at bhorehani on a professional visit the past October, when the "good Samari tan" came along introducing Allen's Lung Bal sam into New England. I procured a bottle and took it according to directions and found imme diate relief. I have now taken two bottles which has entirely cured me. For the last two years or duriug the time of my affliction I was in a state ot constirpation which the Balsam has ef fectually regulated. No family should be with out this valuable medicine. I see by the West ern papers that the physicians of Cincinnati (where the medicine is manufactured) are intro ducing it into their practice, and I have no doubt it will soon become a classical remedial agent for the cure of all diseases of the throat, bron chial tubes, and the lungs, NATH'L HARRIS, M.

I have received-the following letters, within a few days, without solicitation, and it is with no sense of pleasure that I feel obliged to publish them ; but in justice to the New England Farm ers and myself, I do so. If Paddock, Dean & Co., have no scruples about writing certificates in favor of their phosph ue, and signing the names of reliable men to the same, without au thority, it is time they were shown up to the puonc. it will no longer, I trust, be a mistery to the Vermont farmers how Haddock, Dean & Co.. came to report that they saw a pile of much, as large as any two churches in Vermont, at my factory last year, when there never was a shove- elful upon the premises. "A word to the wise, ate. " WM. L. BRALEY, Manufacturer of Standard Fertilizers, 24 Broad-st., Boston. Sole Agent in the United States for the BD Sea Fowl Guano. Farmers, read the genuine Certificate irom Capt. G. W. .Newhall and then read the fraudulent one published by I'addock, Dean & Co., ani ons their Testimonials. GromCapt. G. W. NEWHALL. Kikby, Caledonia Co., Vt., March 6, 1869. Mr. Wm. L. Bradley. Sir : Seeing a certificate in the "Caledonian," a newspaper printed at St. Johnsbury, Vt., sign ed by Capt. G. W. Newhall, with respect to Pad dock, Dean Co's phosphate, (or Vt. raw-bone), we take the liberty to say that that certificate was not given by said Newhall, nor authorized to be given by any other person, and that it is the most of it false. We will now state the re sult of the use of the phosphate last year, the first we ever used. We bought a barrel of yours and exchanged ten pounds with one of our neigh bors for P. D. & Co's for trial. Having a piece of grass land ploughed the previous year, (1867) wiili a coat of manure turned under last spring, we, to try corn on new breke land, planted about one-tnird or an acre, the first tour rows with noth ing in the hill, the next four we used P. D. & Co's ph.. -pbate, the remainder we planted with yours. The result was this : Where P. D. Co's was used the corn was douhle to that where no phosphate was used, and where yours was used there was one fourth more than wheie Pad dock, Dean & Co's was used. We usod one large spoonful in the hill. Also same in our potatoes until the barrel was used up. And we ar satis fied wo Imd one hundred bushels ore per acre where Bradley's phosphato as used than where no pho.-puatc was ;ed. V e are so wtjj sstistje(l with our trial last year tllB'. we shall double the quantity this. Yours truly, MERIT NEWHALL & SON. (o. w. ) , QCpFarmers, please read the following letter written by Mr. Henry C. Cleveland, of Coventry, for Messrs. H.,ker, Brown & Co., Newport, Vt., and then read the letter written and published by Paddock, Dean & Co., as coming from the same Mr. Cleveland, and notice the difference. Mr. Cleveland says my phosphate was the best ; but no one reading the certificate written by Paddock, Dean & Co., under Mr. Cleveland.s name would know this fact. The only wonder is that Mr. C. had such good results from the bbl. of P. D. & Co's phosphate, if it was actually made in their regular "batch." ILTDid Mr. H. C. Cleveland purchase a bbl. of their regular phosphate, or did they send him a bbl. free of charge to experiment with ? If Pad dock, Dean & Co., will answer this simple quest ion, through this paper, I will send them copies through the same channel of two different anal sis of their phosphate, which I have procured from a distinguished chemist, and at an expense to me of thirty dollars. WM. L. BRADLEY. From HENRY C. CLEVELAND. Coventry, Vt.. March 1, 1869. Messrs. Baku, Bkown & Co., Newport. Vt. Gents: In reply to jour inquiries about my using Superphosphate last seiison, 1 would say hat I ui-ed a barrel of Bradley s, also a barrel ot Paddock J( Dean's Superphosphate. I used them ide by side, on a piece ot land in very poor con dition, on which I had spread a coat of barn-yard manure, which was mostly saw dust, which had been thrown into the yard to absorb the moist ure. I consider that both kinds of phosphate gave me an increased crop, (as I planted four rows without any phosphate,) but Bradley s gave the O.VICKE8T start, and most vigorous growth h rough the season. 1 did not measure or weigh the corn trom either, used only "Bradley's," and "Paddock & Dean's" Superphosphate last season. I never gave Messrs. Paddock & Dean any certificate whatever, nor stated anything different to them rom the above. HENRY C. CLEVELAND. Sutton, Vt., Feb. 13, 1869. . P. Brown & Co., Lyndon, Vt, I used last year about 1,700 lbs. of Paddock's phosphate and 500 lbs. of Bradley's. I used them on potatoes, oats, India wheat, turnips ai d wheat. I found a very great difference in favor of Bradley's. The crops where I used Bradley's were from one-lourth to one-third more than where Pad dock's was used on the same fields. On wheat the difference in favor of Bradley's was much more than on the other crops. I would not use Paddock's on any kind of a crop. Respectfully, E. N. EASTMAN. CuAFTSBfhY, Vt. Jan. 16, 1868. Wm. L. Bkadley, Esa., Deaii Sin : 1 have used your Superphosphate upon corn, potatoes, garden vegetables, and my tield crop of rutabagas, and uniformly with good results, especially upon rutabagas nas its enects been marked, increasing the product at least four fold the pasi season over those where no phos phate was used, planted side by side and in oth er respects treated preci sely alike. 1 have u.-cd t-uperphosphate lor several years and of several different brands, and will say from what experience I have had, 1 feel the most confidence iu yours of any brand I have used. 1 would now hardlv think ot keeping my stocK through the winter without a good supply of roots, and I would hardly think of trying to raise the roots without your Superphosdhate. Yours truly, I. D. R. COLLINS. To Paddock, Dean & Co. From WILLIAM L. BRADLEY. I notice vour list of testimonials from farmers in Vermont, who used your phosphate last year, and that they speak highly of your article. I am led to believe from my knowledge ot tne use of commercial fertilizers, from hundred) of experiments made within the last fineen years under my own eye, and from the experience of others duriug that time, and from the writings of scientific men for the last forty years, on com- meicial manures since tht hret introduction of Snperphosphate of Lime by the celebrated Liebig that the article by which tnese men obtained such satisfactory results, was not your regular article as furnished by you to others twelve months since, but was made witn a view to these experiments, or else, an article purchased for that purpose, and made by some reliable manu facturer ot Superphosphate of Lime. Am I cor rect ? Are you willing to state to the public that the quality was the same as you sold to others, and that you manufactured but one quality last year i My reason for asking this is, that it seems to me that justice demands it. The farmers should know the facts, for if it safact,that your regular article will give as good satistactiun as mine, when a mixture like yours will answer as well, and which they can obtain at one halt the cost that my Superphosphate of Lime can be manu factured for, as I am prepared to prove, and will convince them as soon as you will convince me that Mr. Lambert Hastings aud others who have written testimonials in favor of your article, used the same quality of your manufacture last year which you sold to C. S. Hubbard, of Winds or, Vt, January 22d, 1868, and at that time stat ed to him in a letter that it was your last "batch" and better than any you made the previous year and the same, a&o, which you sold to another party iu Vermont as late as May 1868. The points I wish to know, and which the public should understand, are whether yon manufact ure more than one quality, or whether yon make one "batch,' as yon call it, to experiment with for testimonials, and another "batch" to sell gen erally; and if only, one quality, did Lambert Hastings and others, who have made favorable reports of your article, nse that one quality, or did you procure for them an article manufactur ed by some one else, and dispose of it as your own ? If your regular article, as a rule, will answer the requirements necessary for the growth of plants, then science, so far as it goes to aid agri culture, is a failure. I have always supposed, and still think, that farmers wan a phosphate of uniform quality, one that can be depended upon season atttr sea son and one that both science and the experi ence of years has proved to contain knowu food constituents in proportions necessary to the growth of plants which are sparingly found in all soils that have been cultivated for a long pe riod. You made severe charges against me last year, as a manufacturer of Superphosphate, which I was able to prove to the satisfaction of all, I trust, that you were unwarranted in doing to sav the least; I therefore simply ask in return from you an answer to the above, that I niaj make further comments hereafter for the bene fit of the Vermont farmers.

This is complaint mac an cnuareu are expected to nave; ana when it comes, strange to say, they are left to fight it through as they "lest can, little or noth ing being done to break its intensity or help it along. And when it is reflected that very many of the diseases of older and adult years have their origin in the tear and strain of Whooping Cough, this neglect would be utterly unaccount able but for the fact that children's diseases. like many of the weaknesses of women, are con sidered so much a matter ot course that people have become stoically unconcerned about them. Let tnem cough it through, as we did, seems generally to be the unfeeling word. Whooping uougn is a nervous disease, and Dodd s nervine and Inv'gorator treats it with Complete Suc cess. Mothers Try It, and save your little ones .he worst agony of this distressing affliction. A sure and beneficent medicine. . Important Certificate. Speedy Cure of Whooping Coughi J. W. Peckbtt, Esq., Brooklyn, N.Y. I am not in the habit of taking advertised med icines, nor of certifying to their curative effects when they come under my observation ; out i feel constrained to make an exception in favor of Dood's Nervine and lr.vigorator, a medicine I have used in my famity tor some time past. Jy little daughter had been suffering from severe whooping cough for several weeks, and was so much broken ot rest at night that by excessive coughing and loss of sleep her constitution and general health seemed to be giving away. Vari ous remedies or palliatives were recommended by intimate neighbors, but nothing was tried un til our attention was called by a physician not now in practice to Dodd's Nervine. This we pro cured and commenced using at once wirh an effect immediate and surprising. As the convul sions were naraest at mgnt, we began ny giving the Nervine on going to bed. The firs dose admin istered made its impression ; the cough became less frequent, and very much less severe she soon got her acenstomed sleep rapidly revived in health ana vigor ana in a tew aays was as well as ever. What was left of the whooping cough was thereafter of no trouble. Of course I cannot but consider Dodd's Nervine and Invig orator an invaluable remedy for this distressing malady. I may add, that I have since recom mended it to several family friends, in like cir cumstances, and have found it in every case to be equally successful. It needs only to be known to come into universal demand. J. W. PECKETT. For sale by druggists. Price One Dollar. PATENTSBy Whom ObtainedPatents. Address Thos. H.

Important Certificate. Having been afflicted with chronic disease of the digestive organs, (described by physicians as an enlargement of the liver and inflammation of the stomach,) for more than ten years, and suf fered what words can never describe, without re lief from the most celebrated medical skill that could be consulted, I was induced by the physi cian who last attended me to try Dodd's Neb vine and Isvigorator. He had witnessed its effects he said in his own practice, and could recommend it in the highest terms. I had about lost faith in everything ; but I followed his ad vice, procured the medicine. The effect inspired me with hope. I continued its use, and still im proved ; followed it up. I grew stronger and stronger, and suffered less and less from my troubles. This for some months until I was relieved and needed it no longer. Dodd's Ner vine restored me to complete and sound health ; and no language is able to express my gratitude I feel at being well once more. I am thoroughly cured of the horrible suffering that had made ten years of my life most wretched. No one can conceive my joy who has not experienced a like recovery. E. B. LIBBY. 15w8 St. Paul, Minn.
