"We have never heretofore offered any in
ducements to new subscribers to the Stan
dard in the way of clubbing with other pa
pers, but as it is getting to be quite fash
ionable with those editors who eannot suc
cessfully compete with their neighbors
without the aid of such prop, we have in
this regard concluded to follow in the wake
of others, and therefore make the follow
ing propositions, which are not excelled by
any publisher in Vermont, and in one or
two respects are far ahead of any.
Is Trouble Agajx. Cipt. Beattte f
Brunswick, is in trouble again this time
as heretofore on divew tst'her occasions,
caused by too freqUent and heavy potations
of bad w hiskey. Saturday night of week
before last, while in a state of beastly in
toxication, he broke into the house of Vm.
Boutwell about two miles from Lancaster,
N. II., and after scaring the family nearly
out of their wits, threatened to shoot a ne
gro in the emply of Mr. Boutwell. The
negro ran for assistance (Boutwell being
away from home) and when he returned
the captain was so drunk he could not roll
over, when they sent him home. The cap
tain is an uglycHstomer when drank which
is too frequent for his good name and fame,
but a good fellow we are told when sober.
About two years ago he stabbed a man in
Strafford, X. II., while in a drunken fra
cas. He was once dishonorably discharged
from the army for shooting at Lieut. Mill
er, but by some sort of hocus pocus was re
instated. We predict that when he finally
" shuffles off this mortal coil," a coil of
rope will have something to do with it, and
that the coil will be placed too affection
ately near one of his long ears. All by
means of the bottle. He represented his
town in the legislature this fall. He has
been arrested for housebreaking.
STANDARD and STOCK JOURNAL.
For $2,2" we will send the Standard and
the American Stock Journal to January 1,
1H71. The Stock Journal is a '.V2 page
monthly, printed at 1'arksburg, l'enn., at
one dollar a year. It is devoted entirely
to the interests of stock raisers and is the
host thing of its kind published. The ob
ject of the publisher in offering it to us so
cheap is to introduce it, even at a loss, in
hope of keeping the subscriber thus ob
tained a second year. It should be in the
hands of every one who owns one animal
or one fowl. ld subscribers as well as new
can have the benefit of this oiler.
STANDARD and Kl'K.VI. AMERICAN.
For $20 we will send the Standard and
the Rural American to January 1, 1S71.
The Rural American is a large .",2 p;me ag
ricultural monthly, printed in New York
City, at l,"0 a year ; it is purely an agri
cultural journal, and we regard it as unex
celled by any similar monthly in the coun

new can have the benefit of this

For ?:,o0 we will send the Standard and
the New England Homestead to Januarv
1,1371. The Homestead is a large eight
page paper, printed at Springfield, Mass.,
price $2,50 a year ; it is a splendid paper
in every particular, is printed weekly. We
make this oiler to those who do not now
take it. Send is ?:,"! and secure the
Homestead and Standard to January 1,
The Ku-Klcx Again. It has been
several months since we have heard any
thing of the doings of this band of marau
ders. Hut that they still live we are ad
monished from recent bloody transactions
which transpired near Tiptonville, Tenn.,
on Sunday of last week. A party of these
villains went to the house of Wm. Jones,
i planter, to disarm the negroes in his em
ploy, but Jones having knowledge of their
intended visit prepared them a warm re
ception, killing twoot their number, when
they thought better of the matter and re
treated. The sheriff next dav went to ar
rest Jones and his negroes, a deputy how
ever spirited him away to Memphis, while
tliesheriff started with the negroes for Troy.
On the road a posse took the negroes into
the woods and shot them. What a coun
try to live in.
A Si'eck of Wa it. A few days ago our
government ordered the seizure of t h e
Spanish gunboats which have for several
months been building in New York and
Connecticut, the theory of the government
being that they are intended for use against
l eru, Willi winch country pain is now at
war. It would be a breach of our neutral
ity laws to allow these boats to leave our
waters if such is the object of the Spanish
government. Reports are that a Spanish
fleet is now oil' New York harbor prepared
with powder and ball to knock that wicked
city into a cocked hat and tear the nation
to .-hoe strings! If this report is true
tilings are getting warlike, iiuess there is
no very great danger ju-t yet. Spain fight

STANDARD find WESTERN HOME.
For ?2,2" we will send the Standard and
Western Home to January 1, 1 S 7 1 . The
Western Home is a literary monthly of Hi
pages, anil has four columns to the page,
is printed at Chicago, 111., at si,o(i u year,
but we will let you have it for 2" cts. pro
vided you pay one year in advance for the
STANDARD NEW YORK WEEKLY.
For $4,00 we will send the Standard and
New York Weekly a great story paper
to January 1, 171. The price of the
Weekly is a year, but by clubbing it
with the Standard we can furnish it for
two dollars. This offer is made only to
those who do not now take our paper, and
is limited to fifteen new ones.
The above offers are open to January
next. The terms are cash in advance in
all cases. We have offered no poor publi
cations. We have offered them all cheap.
AVe make no money on any of them, but
do lose on two. If anv one thinks himself
unable to pay so much for the highest
priced ones wo oiler, get your neighbor to
go halves with you on them, but do not
stop the Standard. We are trying to print
a good paper, and have the vanity to be
lieve that we offer the best reading and the
most of it for the money of any paper in
the state, with the exception of the Mont
pelier Journal and the Burlington Free
Press, We have as .ill can see, and as all
acknowledge, made great improvements in
the paper the last year, for which we have
made no extra charge, although these im
provements have cost us heavily and have
added no less than $12 to our weekly bills.
Yet in the face and eyes of these facts we
promise our readers that if they will only
help us to more advance paying suscribers,
and will also pay for their own in advance,
we will before another year rolls around
make greater improvements than any yet
made. We have faith to believe that Or
leans County can and will support a big
ger and better paper than she now has, and
at the same price. At any rate we are the
man to risk it if people will pay us in ad
vance and not put us to the cruel expense
of paying an agent three dollars a day to
collect what is our due and not get a fourth
of it then. Come friends, send us money
as fast as your subscriptions expire, speak
a good word for us and thus help your
selves. If you can get a better paper than
ours for the same money we ask we shall
not blame you for changing, but do not
change merely for the sake of changing.
If we are doing well stand by us ; that en
courages us to do still better; but do not
top your paper, that is depressing and free
les every earnest attempt at well doing.
tetter from Washington.
Washington, D.C., Nov. 27, 18G9.
It is estimated that there are now about
fifty thousand filed applications for clerk
ships in the several government depart
ments, a very few of which have ever been
acted upon, and it is needless to say nor
ever will only through an almost superhu
man effort of congressmen. Times are so
very hard throughout the country that
government positions are more eagerly
sought after than ever before, and the poor
congressman is the only medium through
which these offices can possibly be obtained.
Already some thirty or forty M. C.'s have
arrived, closely followed by their constitu
ents after clerkships. The heads of the
departments, although overtaxed with the
duties of their offices which is now increas
ed by the labors on their annual reports,
are bored almost to death with renewed
application for clerkships through their
representatives. The representative must
be respected, his wants attended to, and
his demand, if possible, acceded to. With
the heads of the departments, the most un
welcome visitors are congressmen, and with
congressmen, their constituents.
The President's message, forthcoming,
is a theme of general speculation among
the news gatherers of this city. So many
are the Important questions of such vital
interest to the country that it was long ago
supposed that ere this, we might be able,
at least, to give a few hints of its import.
But such is not the case. He has not writ
ten it, reports to the contrary notwithstand
ing, and will not till he has thoroughly
viewed and considered the report of each
member of his cabinet.
The President is indeed a representative
man. His line of policy is the interest of
the people. In the course of conversation
with a gentleman friend of his the other
dav, he said that there was but one course
for him to pursue, which was very simple, !
and the result of which he had no fears.
He is as easy, unconcerned, and as much
at home in the executive chair as he was
at the head of an army. He has the same
confidence in his cabinet as he had in his
generals, and old Napoleon-like, while he
seldom forgets a friend in the dispensation
of official patronage, with his keen percep
tion of character and good solid sense, lie
makes good selections. Notwithstanding
he is constantly viewed by all classes of
people on all kinds of subjects, he is a hap
py man, enjoys the society of his friends
and family, has a good appetite, the re.-utt
of which is good health, and more than all
the smoking of good cigars. Unlike most
presidents since the days of Jackson in this
one respect, he can be often seen, like the
humblest citizen, walking the public streets
of Washington. But a short time since,
your correspondent's attention was called
to him just coming out of a little cigar
store kept in a little one story old trained
building where he had been purchasing a
cigar. Such a man is the president of the
United States. It matters little to him,
seemingly, whether performing the high
est executive duties or hauling wood into
the city of St. Louis, he is the same unso
phisticated gentleman, an honest man.

Specie Payments. The question of an
early resumption of specie payments In
die government is beginning to agitate the
public mind. Significant of this, and as
indicating the views of three prominent
men, we make quotations from their letters
to Hon. E.G. Spaulding, acknowledging
the receipt of a copy of his Financial His
tory of the War. The writers are Attor
ney General Hoar, Hon. Horace Mayuard
of Tennessee and Hon. Charles Sumner.
Mr. Hoar says:
" I am of those who believed that it was
the interest as well as the duty of the na
tion to return at once to the true and solid
standard of value as soon as active hostili
ties ceased; that we should have treated
the currency as we did our armies regard
ing the volunteers and greenbacks alike as
necessities of war, to be dispensed with as
fast as possible on the return of peace. I
think we made a great mistake in not do
ing so; that the shortest method was the
safest and best; that the only way to reach
the object is by a steady and persistent con
traction of the currency."
Mr. Hoar hopes that congress will ad
dress itself at once to the work, when it
meets, of solving the problem.
Mr. Maynard, in the course of his letter
says: " Let the currency now be made con
vertible into coin at the pleasure of the
bolder, and nothing would beleftto be dis
cussed. Why this has not been done, why
it is not done, why it should not be done,
I confess, after all I have read and heard,
I am not able to see. One of these davs
some bold man will take the step, and then
everybody will wonder whyit had not been
aken vears belore.
Mr. Sumner places himself on record in
this concise and emphatic language:
1 am not content with the long post
ponement of specie payments. I believe
that the time has come for this blessing,
uiu I begin to be impatient when I see
how easily people find excuses for not ac

The Gale in Vermont. The Rutland
Herald reports extensive damage in that
ection bv the gale of last caturclav. In
Rutland the barn of Mrs Downs was com
pletely demolished and her house badly
nattered ; two barns ot Jioscs tester were
destroyed, and two belonging to Leman
Carpenter were unroofed and otherwise in
jured ; a new L to the house of W. L. Par
sons was raised to the ground ; the house
of Mrs. Elizabeth Huntoon was badly
damaged ; the roof of the Baptist church
was injured, and other buildings sustained
more or less damage. In Mendon the
barns of Doran II. Orme were demolished.
and great damage was inflicted upon farm
buildings generally. At Middlebury sev
eral houses and barns were unroofed. At
North Bennington the amount of property
destroyed is said to be very great. Ben
nington and other points on the line ot the
Ix-banon Springs Railroad were also visit
ed by the storm and suffered heavily. In
Shrewsbury the Waterman highway bridge
was blown down, entailing a loss on the
town of $ 1500. At Castleton the damage
was very heavy. The large flour store
house ot Langdon & Ainsworth is a total
wreck, and the firm loses heavily. At
Pawlet considerable damage was done.
Mr. Allen Whelan had 34 cows killed.
They were under a barn elevated on a stone
foundation, and, the structure being blown
from the foundation, one side settled down
upon the stock. Clarendon, Tinmouth,

the Cole-Hitchcock notoriety. It is possi
ble there may not have been at first any
reason for this rumor, but not, I think,
probable; at least the General, who has
been here nearly all the time for the last
six months, was spoken to on the subject,
and did not deny but what such a thing
might have been at least dreamed of in their
family. The General may have been a
good soldier, and the killing of Hitchcock
in cold blood, since a jury of twelve men
was finally procured to set him free, may
be passed without much comment, upon
the principle of letting the past dead bury
its dead, yet notwithstanding, it has be

shall so forget the past and the deed be
committed, to allow him, whose plea of in

The women sufferers here are still afflict
ed at their Female Suffrage meetings with
the presence of naughty and disorderly old
bows, free thinkers and free lovers. At
their regular meeting, week before last
they determined to exact thereafter a ten
cent admittance fee, with the hopes that it
might keep away the rougher portion of
the disorderly, but to no avail but a replcn
ishment of an exhausted treasury. At an
early hour at their entrance door waii seen
an old maid, a strong minded one, taking
in the ten cent scriptsat a fast rate. Push
ing and jamming was the order at the door,
each with his ten cents, anxious to get in
first and secure a seat. The old maid (I
wouldn't say old maid if I could well help
it) did nobly both in her office and assist

usher and guardian of the peace, like a

Letter from Europe.
Paris, Nov: 20th; 1869.
I ran over here from the other side of the
channel to meet Bome American friends
who were to leave on the 19th, and as we
say at home (how pleasant that word sounds
to an exile!) got here just in time to be too
late. They had gone, and my pocket book
of letters "to be delivered in person" must
all go by mail. It was my own fault. I
was advised not to skip a packet at Dover,
but thinking, as my tall friend Josh Bill
ings does, that "advice is good only as cor
roborative testimony," I scorned the coun
sel of the good natured, but toothless and
cross eyed old gentleman who offered it,
I have consoled myself, however, by
studying this great city, which has been
wondrously changed for the better since I
was here last. Yesterday I spent pleas
antly with a number of jolly journalists, of
whom many are Bohemians of the first wa

Eugene Fourcade, who has just passed
away, at the age of 49, was a great favor
ite. He was one of the oldest journalists
in Europe. You know it is hard for a
newspaper man to live long in this coun
try. If his life is not snuffed out by a pis
tol shot, or thrust out at the sword's point,
or drowned out by a deluge of red wine or
white, or smoked out, or worn out in the
arduous routine of duty, it stands a good
chance of being worried out by the gov
ernment, if its owner is a republican, or
fretted out if he is a monarchist. There
fore, although Fourcade was only 49 when
he died, he was one of the veteran writers.
At the age of 17 he established the Sema
pli'ire at Marseilles where he was born, and
made it one of the strongest provincial pa
pers in Europe. While editing his paper
he performed the manifold duties of a bank
clerk, and also superintended the educa
tion of a younger brother. So great was
the reputation which the Semaphore en
joyed that in 1S3! he wa.s urged by the pro
prietors of the Ji-'vue des Deux Hhmdes, at
Paris, to take a leading position on the
staff of that journal. He accepted their
offer, and until a year ago contributed reg
ularly twice a month to its columns the re

Large Business. AVe are informed by
Daniel Carpenter, surveyor of lumber for
the Fairbanks', that this firm have used
within the past twenty five days, for their
works and for building purposes, a little
over SOOjOOO feet of lumber. In addition
to this 50,000 feet of timber and 50,000 feet
of lath have been drawn to the site of Mr,
Thaddeus Fairbanks' new building, mak
ing more than 400,000 feet in all. This
lumber is mostlv procured in Essex county,
which is now the gTeat plumber region of
tne state,' when the new railroad is in op
eration it will add greatly to the facilities
for procuring this lumber. It is a fact
worthy of the greatest consideration that
Vermont will, at no distant day, be nearly
destitute of lumber, suitable for building
purposes, unless something is done to re
plenish the forests. St. Johwsbury Times.
Horses Killed. The Montreal and
New Y'ork night express train over the
Vermont Central railroad caused a very
singular slaughter on the Vermont and
Massachusetts road, about two miles below
Brattleboro, last week, killing seven horses
belonging to David Goodell, being about
half of his herd. They are supposed to
have got out of the pasture into a by road,
and thence on the track, where, on the ap
proach of the train, they had doubtless
huddled together, as animals will in the
dark, and so were struck by the engine
When found they lav in every shape, with

half a mile below Bartonsvile, which had
been erected to temporarily take the place
of a bridge which was carried away by the
recent freshet. Two wash outs of the road

of workmen were set at work yesterday to
repair the damage, and before night all
tne brents were mended except the bndg

large public meeting (electoral) of the l-"ir.t
Circumscription, in La Chanelle. was most
uproariously greeted by tne populace, who
vehemently demanded to hear him speak.
He was very pale with emotion, and for
some moments was nardiv ahle to speak.
but warming ':p as he proceeded he gave
vent to brave thoughts that roused his
hearers to the very height of the Frenchi-
est of French excitement. They got upon
their feet and yelled. They threw their
caps into the air and shouted. They laugh
ed and they cried ; and altogether acted as
if they had lost all control over themselves.
I translate for you a part of his speech :
" Citizens, vou mav have but little res
pect for my energy because of the signs of
emotion which 1 cannot conceal. When
an exile, returning to his home, meets with
a welcome like this, his pallor and his tears
ire excusable. I see that you trust me al

Let the revolution do witn me as it will.
I have no fear. I have risked much, suf
fered much, yet I am here. The oath which
I have taken is less humiliating to the can
didate who submits to take it, than to the
government which imposes it.
At this point the speaker was interrupt
ed by the Commtisaire who warned him not
to prophesy a Republican victory. But
" Never has a strong government more
stupidly shown its weakness, than has that
ol trance in inventing ana imposing this
oath. It pretends to call on universal suf
frage to pronounce between itself and us.
and when it is about to speak its mouth is
closed. We must work together. Long
live liberty !"
AVhen he came down from the stand he
was almost overwhelmed by the people who
press -jd forward to shake hands with him.
He is their candidate, and will be elected.

There have been many duels in Paris
lately. Two bellicose individuals settleda
dispute vesterday by means of small swords.
One of the combatants was run through
and through, and the other lost an eye.
They both feel satisfied this morning, no
doubt. Only last week another duel was
fought. A jealous husband, instead of
locking his wife up, or sending her to a
convent, or shipping her to Chicago, chal
lenged his suspected friend and was com
fortably buried two days afterward, in con
sequence. The newspaper people think that the
pastoral letter of the Archbishop of Paris,
opposing the adoption of the dogma of
Papal infallibility, was inspired by the Em

Brutal Assault. On Monday week,
Mr. S. R. Waterman took his team and
carried Miss Keyes to the depot at Water
burv. He started from our door fully an
hour after the stage had passed. He did
not drive unusually fast, but overtook the
stage near Mr. Rand s. After following
the coach to near the old Ferrin place, and
finding that it was going very slowly, he
drove by. His horses soon became restive,
and he became aware that Dodge was chas
ing them. He "let his horses out," but
Dodge dashed on at a furious speed, seem
ing determined to runintohim. In a light
covered buggy with a lady, it was not
pleasant to have to run his horses to the
top of their speed over a frozen, bubbly
road ; but the "Major" has spirit and did
not want to give up the track, and so he
dashed on. On the Benson flat, the bolt
in one of the pole shackles came out, let
ting that side down of course. Any one
will at once see the perilous condition the
occupants of the buggy were in. The Ma
jor, with great presence of mind reined his
horses sharply in the direction the buggy
was running out ot the road, and handing
the lines to Miss Keyes, jumped to the hors
es' heads. Dodge ran into him, his lead
ers going one each side of the buggy, and,
striking the lead-bars or whifBetree against
it, pushed it along some distance before he
stopped them. Getting his horses liberat
ed, he drove on, asking in a loud and inso
lent tone, "what in the devil you stopped
here for?" repeating the question, the
"Maj." being too full for reply. Now the
secret of this brutality is just this : As an
act of politeness to Miss Keyes, it had been
ottered to her, if she would remain at Hyde
Park over the Sabbath, to take her to Wa
terbury by private conveyance in a man
ner to make her journey as pleasant as
possible. By this arrangement she would
not have to leave so early in the morning.
etc. Dodge had pumped the whole ar
rangement out at the American House.
and exibited a foolish anger because the
passenger was not going with him, we sup
pose. JNo doubt he drove very slowly pur-
posly to have the Major overtake and pass
him, that he might nave the opportunity
to exhibit his brutal spite. His savage in
stincts came near having a fuller gratifica
tion. The Major says Miss Keyes handled
the reins skillfully and as calmly as any
gentleman could have done under the cir
cumstances, and that had she been timid
as most ladies would have been, the conse
quences would probably have been very
