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

weeks ago.
Last Monday and Tuesday quite a
large amount of new sugar was bro't
into this village, and sold readily at
15 to 17 1-2 cts. per pound, and $1.25

Jay Peak, via Troy, has also strad
dled his velocipede, and struck out

well in some places, they will un
doubtedly amass stupendous fortunes

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

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

that he may have lost himself in the

much longer, we fear he will not be
rocognizable when he returns.

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

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,

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
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. "

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,
(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.
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.
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.

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,
To Paddock, Dean & Co.
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.

gives agreeable and almost instant relief in the
spasms of W hooping Cough. 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

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.

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.
