Five years have elapsed since the close of the bloodiest and most gigan tic war known to modern history, and in that interval men hare had an op portunity of thinking over the events which passed before them in Buch quick succession that reflection was impossible; and as a natural conse quence each Bection has manifested a great desire to hear what the other has to say of its motives and conduct in tho great struggle. This has led to the production of numerous histo ries and narratives on the Northern A Republican Union Convention of the Third Congressional District of Vermont will be held at Stowe, on Thursday, the 26th day of August Inst., at 11 o'clock a. m., for the purpose of nom inating a candidate for Representative to Con gress, to be supported by the Republican free men of the District at the election on the first Tuesday of September next. The P ipublican Union voters of this Congres slonal District are invited to be represented in the Convention by their delegates to be chosen upon the basis of one delegate from each town and an additional delegate for every hundreJ and every fraction of one hundred larger than fifty votes cast for the Republican candidate for Governor at the last State Election.

Times. ed. After which the convention adjourn Wab News. The clearest infor mation we can give regarding war matters is that taken from the Boston Journal, to be found in another place. That gives a concise statement of general military operations up to last Tuesday, since which time we are flooded with more news of like char acter : of new battles, further retreats. more threats, tears, clamorous appeals to tho French people, &c We hear of a new battle at Pont-a-Mousson another at Mars la-Tour, and also at Be icy, which is a continuation of the chapter of Prussian victories, though we get nothing that we dare to cal reliable. War news from over the water is far more unsatisfactory and untrustworthy than that which used to come to us in our late war. We pre fer to give not raanv rumors. Our readers will prefer facts to mere sen sational reports. Theso we shal give as we become CQnviar.cd they are such. The dispatches from Paris have much to say of grand strategic move ments on the part of tho French in process of development. They hint at successes, and talk of checks on the Prussian advance. -But French strat egy and French victories have one peculiarity : they precede a still fur- tuer retreat of tb Irenoh forces Thus we were told by Napoleon on Snnn.iv that tho Prussians had hppn j beaten back from Metz with fearful loss. But Monday finds the French army in full retreat on the line of the Meusc, followed by the Prussians so closely vhat the retreat is a continuous battle. Again, we arc told from Paris that the Prussians have met with ter rible reverses, and are falling back to Moselle. Swiftly on the heels of these It seems clear that while the French, under Bazaine, have sustained continual reverses since they left the Moselle on Sunday, and have been pushed with tireless energy by the Prussians, they have succeeded in preserving their lines and in securing a junction with McMahon, to prevent which was doubtless one object of the snip to legislation in isianey. ur. Lang is an historical character. I had heard of him before I ever thought of visiting the Antipodes. His name was often men tioned in the London papers twenty years ago. An active Scotchman, he had made his mark on the colony as his fellow coun trymen, Bishop Strachan and Mackensie did on Upper Canada. He made seven voyages home, wrote books on Australia, established a college, organized a Presby terian assembly, colonized Queensland, was a member of the legislative assembly, and has always remained pastor of the "Scots church." " A man of war from his youth," he was the best abused person in the colo ny. I met with him on a missionary com mittee and he was the mildest mannered appearing gentleman I ever saw except Garrison. His weakness was a cacocthet Scribendi. Going out voung as the first Presbyterian minister, a public functionary pave him a home in his house, without charge, when he was astonished to have his domestic arrangements critized in the public papers by his guest. The redoubt able doctor obtruded his good offices as umpire in our national difficulties. Ac cording to his own account our national affairs, as viewed from his stand point, found an easy and perfect parallel in the war on the children of Israel. The worthy doctor in his egotism forgot one slight dif ference in the parallel cases, that he was not fitted for the role of a prophet. His naivete was refreshing, to detail these cir cumstances, in a funeral sermon on Pres ident Lincoln. It was merely an anachio nism. He could have been in his proper place among the Presbyterian clergy of Cromwell's time. If he got others into the papers, he is never out of them him self. His blunders form an inexhaustible fund of merriment for the Sidney Punch. NEWSPAPERS. The " London Times" of New South Wales, is the Morning Herald. The pro prietor commenced on it a journeyman printer. As a public man, he is the "Sam uel Morley" of the colony. It brings him from $50,000 to $100,000 net profits per annum. A clergyman, who distinguished himself by opposing the transportation laws is the editor. The proprietor's son, a promising young man,visited the principal printing offices of England and America before assuming charge of the paper, but was killed by a fall from ; Kr t. after his return. The " Empire," the lib eral organ took the northern side in the war, and favored American ideas and in stitutions. It has appeared lately as a penny paper, and the Herald is obliged to follow its lead in this as in many other re spects. There are several Weeklies, de nominational organs and literary periodic als Both Melbourne and Sidney boast a Monthly " Illustrated News." fully equal to that recently established in Montreal. Each city also sports a Weekly Punch ; abounding in local wit and humor, which shows that they don't live without laugh ing at the Antipodes. They have some publishing houses. And Australian works of fiction and poetry appear from time to time. English writers, like Bulwer Lyt ton and Wm. Howitt, havesketched for-us of life as they found it there : and amusing descriptions have appeared from the pen of a writer bythenowt de plume ot "Old Bomerang."

Having made more than half the distance to the French capital, over three strong defensive lines, it is not to be supposed that the Prussian Generals will relax their vigor when the goal is almost in sight. The Lon don Times says the finishing stroke to the French army was given at Metz ; that another and decisive battle will be fought at Chalons, after which English intervention will take place Doubtless a joint intervention by the great powers of Europe will be mado to save r ranee from utter ruin and spoliation, but it will not be extended until such time a3 the French people are humbled sufficiently to crave it. it cannot be otherwise than a source of uneasiness to the other powers of Europe, thi3 aggrandizement of Prus sia, especially with the wily Bismarck as the real head and director of the Germanic Confederation, and we may, therefore, expect to see a line drawn, across which Prussia will not be per mitted, unless she is prepared to defy the combined powers of Europe. Meanwhile, it remains to be seen how the disastrous retreat of their armies from Metz to Chalons will be received in Paris. The stories of strategical movements in retreat, of fighting by detachments, of partia successes, and of new movements. whoso combined result is to give i decisive victory in the near future al these show a purpose to deceive the Parisians and a fear that the real facts, if known, would imperil the Government. We shall have stirring news from Fans soon 1 Boston Jour nal. LECTUEES. Besides the theatres, concerts and other amusements, there are frequent lectures in the School of Arts and Temperance Hall. I had the pleasure of appearing before a Sidney audience in both places, as a lec turer on American subjects, when raising money for our church building fund. On the occasion of my delivering a lecture on the " Life and character of Abraham Lin coln," soon after his assassination, I had the honor of a full house with the Ameri can consul in the chair. The highest en comiums on that wonderful man were the best received by an audience that would have hissed them a few days before. Such a revolution in the public sentiment did his martyrdom effect. There were two men noted as lecturers, who always drew crowded houses. They were Rev. Mr. Smith, an Episcopal clergy man, and Father Taylor, the Methodist street preacher from San Francisco. Mr. Smith commenced life as a " publican and sinner." He not only kept a public house, but was a rowdy, and his ill treat ment of his wife caused her death. As in the case of John Newton and others, the grace of God effected a complete change in him, and like Newton and others, he published " a narrative" of his conversion. He entered holy orders, but hisconfessions more full and honest than judicious excit ed so much remark that the book was sup pressed, and he was allowed by the bishop to visit England for his health. On his return he soon became the Spurgeon or Tyng of Sidney. He gathered a church forwards, " Hog in, hog out. Hog in, hog out." Third Congressional Contest. Smith gets the office : Grout has the honors; while Hendee has something elte. " So all the people sav.'' Thus has Smith beaten the crowd in grand strategy, though it is a strategy of which any truly honora ble man would feel ashamed. It is the strategy of duplicity, of deceit, and of adroit statements that just escape false hood. If Mr. Smith is proud of this spe cies of cunning of political thimblerig ing, he is welcome to the questionable honor. Certainly no other man in the dis trict will ever dispute his claims in this his peculiar branch of diplomacy. stand ard. To reduce this fusilade to emphatic charges it may be stated thus : 1. Grout agreed to retire, and did so honorably. 2. Hendee was paid money or something else to retire from the contest. 3. It was all the result of a mean trick of a small politician. The Editjr of the Standard has now a reputation for honest, blunt eloquence and a spirit of fair play. He has toiled early and late, and with sturdy honest labor has earned but a hum ble liring, and has often thrown aside rare chances to make money, because " the way to it" was chafing to his independent spir it. I have long known and respected him as a man of strong, good sense, standing integrity, coupled with ability as a writer and editor. But i n this article from which 1 have quoted he has, it seems to me, done violence to all these traits of character. He has grossly assailed men of un impeached integrity, made assertions without a particle of evidence to back them up, and has left a wide field for the suspicion that these attacks are inspired by Gen. Grout in retaliation for his defeat. I think this is not true. I think Gen. Grout would not and could not so influence the Standard, but people, as you say, " will talk," and they will be sure to fix that as one of the reasons for the course pursued by the Standard That Gov. Hendee could be purchased I uo not, nor will not believe. Have vou any evidence that he could be? Any evi dencethat he was paid to retire? If not, then your hint was in direct contrast to vour usual candor and fairness. Vou say the siraiejr of r?mith is such as should be a shame to a truly honorable man. What did he do ? Simply this : He was the choice of a large part of his district. There were several very worthy aspirants for his position, and there was and would have been a Killkennv cat fiht among them had he refused to run again I know he was anxious to retire from Congress and attend to the large and im portaut interests he has here in the State as Trustee for the Vt. C. R. R., to which position he has lately been elected. But he did not think it right to refute the ur gent request of his constituents under the circumstances. If this was "dishonorable" or " thimblerigging," then almost the en tire republican vote of Chittenden, Frank lin and Essex counties, and a large vote in Lamoille and Orleans counties share in that disgrace, for they certainly urged him strongly to stand again I am not a politician and have no inter ests to advance in this contest, l am a Vermonter and a voter in this district, and am anxious to see Vermont represented by capable and honest men. I have had ex- cellent opportunities to know what Hon. W. C. Smith has done for his State and district, and I do not hesitate to say that a more competent, honest and high minded man never represented the 3d district of Vermont than this same W. C. Smith, of whom vou spoke in terms too much like those used among " fish mongers" to be at all creditable to your paper. In Washington, where every dishonest member of Congress and Senator is can vassed, chalted down and rated as much as ever was a sheep or hog when ready for market; where all the characteristics and habits of men are made use of if possible, and when " Dame Rumor with her hundred tongues" is Been to babble out the secrets of every mercenary or covetous member, is certainly a place where all who are even suspected will be sure to be known and talked of. And yet to the credit of Ver uiont the tongue of scandal meddles not with one of her present delegation ; and they are also considered men of ability. The strong, terse sayings of Poland are al ways seen to claim the attention of the House. The practical good sense, finan cial and commercial knowledge of Smith makes him one of the most useful men in Congress, whether upon the floor or in his committee. The independence, careful study and eloquent words of Willard com mands for him the respect of his colaborers. It seems to me that the republican party of the State is happy in its choice of, and from among the worst characters in the lowest part of the city. He has day schools and a Sunday school of over 1000 children. He visits the people in their homes and his Sunday sermons are full of practical re marks as those of Latimer used to be. He doesn't consider it infra dig to instruct wives thus publicly that they should keep their houses clean, be " keepers at home," have the teakettle boiling, and wean their hus bands from the dram shops. His church edifice often enlarged, is never found large enough for the crowds that hang on his satisfied with its present delegation, and that among them none stands higher than Hon. W. C. Smith, and that it will take much more than the harsh article written against him to change the good opinion had of him by his constituents, or lessen his influence among his collegues in Congress. It would be a good thing for Vermont if the idea of changing members of Congress every four years was changed. Massachu setts has been accustomed to send her Con gressmen back term after term until they lips. And he is never wearied going about are among the most useful, 'because the the country lecturing to raise money for most experienced of men in their positions, some good work, which he . has always in Dawes has been in Congress over 18 years, progress.

Ohio, Illinois sell some books, of which he is author, and and Iowa have followed this plan and was very successful both there and in South Africa as a revival preacher. He is a fine specimen of a man physically. No one can sooner tell the pulse of an audience. It was not often that he failed to fix the attention of the San Francisco roughs and their influence is greatly enhanced there by. Our plan in Vermont has been to swap horses very often, and thus to afford a chance for many ambitious ones to ride the Congressional horse.

I he able and patriotic address of Hon. Henry .Wil son, together with a number of other cam paign documents, are in the printer's hands and will be out during the week, when they will be sown broadcast over the land. The Washington delegation to the Labor Congress to meet in Cincinnati, on the 15th inst., have all left, and are expected to make a good show in their deliberations, One of the delegates has prepared a lengthy address to be delivered there on the Chi nese question, taking grounds against the desirability of the importation to this coun try of Chinese labor, and prepared to pre vent an over plus of this labor by taxing it, contending that injustice to the labor ing classe in this country it should be done in order to make up or balance the capital stock of the laboring man here by virtue of the advanced condition ot this country made so by the industrious labor of our own people over China, The prosecution against Representative Butler of Tennessee has already begun, and we may expect him to arrive in Wash ington under arrest very soon, 'lhe Hon B. has but few sympathising friends here, His history for the last ten years has been anything but favorable toward a confidence in him as a wise, still less an honest man. We make him in a brief history for the past ten years, a member of the Confeder ate lennessee legislature in bl, and one of the most bitter against the Union cause, In 'G3 we find him in the Confederate army as a Lieut-Col. in a Tennessee regiment. After 'G5, seeing the necessity of a recon struction of himself, he was amply prepar el to accept the reconstruction measure of Congress and become a republican candi date for Congress in 1867, and succeeded in getting elected, and admission to his seat in the House by the most generous suffrage of that body. During his congressional career he has been a cadetship broker and a silent part ner in a claim agency illegitimately con ducted ; and it is said, that on investiga tion it will be found that on many occa' sions he has made use of his honorable po sition to consumate his nefarious schemes, The Department of Education has com menced the monthly issue ot a circular pamphlet of 32 to 48 pages of such infor mation as has been mot in demand, and has kept the olprical force of the office too much occupied in collating and copying to the detriment of its regular business. Their first number will be out this week, and will contain valuable statistics from the census of 18G0, (newly compiled) a register of the U. S. school officers, a pam phlet on school room discussions, &c. As lor seminaries in the South, it we tike the "salt water school" of Prof. Poin dexter of Alabama, as he gives it in his circular, which is just received at the Ed ucational Bureau, as an illustration, one would judge that the school system of the South needs a radical reconstruction. In the circulars, in which be publishes the names of twenty-four eminent men as ref erence, beginning with Admiral semmes, and ending with the Right Reverend Bish op Greene of Tennessee, the first great ad vantage which he urges with all the force of his eloquent style, the fact that it is the only salt water school of any pretensions in the State. The first year it matriculat ed 31 or 32, the next year 42 or 43. It is very healthy, too, he says, "the salt in the atmosphere renders it vastly less hurtful than fresh air." System of instruction is not the common school system of New England, "which has never educated, can never educate ; for its pupils forget its les sons ere two' moons have elapsed. The system is wrong like all else of puritan birth, &c." If any person is anxious to learn what the "system" of Prof. Poindex ter is, he must send for one of the Profs, amusing circulars, and he will then know as much, I think I may venture to say, about the wonderful "salt water system" as will do him any good to know. The Patent Office is still very much be hind in its business. The examiners are taking their alloted vacations when they can be spared, so as not to entirely stop business, and as most of them are behind with their examinations it will take until late in the fall for them to bring their work up. The present Commissioner is more efficient than bis predecessor, and has done a good deal toward having the examin ation keep pace with the applications for patents. Inventors are generally a very restless class of people, and as long as they pay to have their work done, it should be done promptly, and officers of the govern ment should be censured for delinquencies, purely the result of laziness. The Com missioner is now away spending the sum mer, and the "machine" like the other De partmental "machines," is running itself. To answer the numerous inquiries con stantly pressing upon the attention of the Commissioner of the General Land Office, the following information is furnished re specting the act of July 15th, 1870, grant ing additional rights to soldiers desiring to enter homesteads on lands within rail road limits : Under the original act, only 80 acres of $2 50 Und could be entered as a homestead. By the amendatory act any honorably discharged soldier who has serv ed not less than 90 days in the military, naval, marine or revenue marine service, during the rebellion, is entitled to enter as a homestead 160 acres of $2 50 land upon payment of the legal fee of $10 and the usual commission on the cash value of the land, allowed as compensation to the Reg ister and Receiver, the only change being the privilege of taking 160 instead of 80 acres of such land. The requirements as to personal residence upon, improvement ana cultivation of the homestead selected, are not varied or altered in any respect such residence, improvement and cultiva tion, being the fundamental conditions upon which all the provisions of the orig inal homestead law and the act amendato ry thereof are based. I am encouraged to say that the Presi dent is expected to return here the first of next week to make preparation for having another cabinet meeting on the 19th inst. In times gone by we should have expected of a President, a sufficient interest in the welfare of the nation, to be in readiness at all times to meet his cabinet. Let Con gress, I sucfirest. on its reassembling pro vide a sub cabinet to act in the place of tne prime one during ineir absence at tne fashionable watering places in the summer season.

St. Johnsbury was chartered Aug. 8. 1770, to John Woods and William Swan and their associates, by Cad wallader Colden, Governor General of New York, and received the name of Dunmore, in honor of the Earl of Dunmore.

Arnold and associates, and the present name was adopted in honor of St John de Crevecocur, the French Consul at New York. The first of this week, Welcome Allard of Newark, was running his planing machine, when by some means he got his right hand into it, running it through a three-eighths of an inch space between the knives and roller. It went in three or four inches above the wrist, before the machine stopped. Others were present, who rendered immediate assistance. The hand could not be removed until the top of the planer was unscrewed and remov ed. The accideat occurred at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, and Mr. Al lard suffered until 10 o'clock at night, when a physiciau arrived and amputa ted the arm below the elbow. Union. McIndoes.

On the 7th inst., our village was the scene of an affair discreditable alike to the town and the parties engaged in it. Two Irish men named respectively Roger Dona hue and Thos. Tracy got into a fight, which resulted seriously to one of the parties. They had been driaking to gether until Donahue got Tracy in the right condition to accomplish his pur pose, when he beat him till he was in sensible, his eyes were entirely closed up, his nose flattened somewhat, and his lips burst open. He was carried home to his friends, and the next day it was thought he could not live, his friends sending for the Priest twice. One of the Northfield police was on the ground but took no measures to make arrests; under the present reg imen here nguting and drinking is rather winked at than otherwise.

Two yokes of large oxen were hitched to a sled well filled with the good things of life, including pies tarts, cake, cookies, etc. A number of horses were also employed in car rying the ladies, who dismounted at intervals, the horses going back for others, who also dismounted when coming up with the former riders. Thus they climbed the rugged moun tain side, uutil they reached open land on the top. The ox team came slow ly along through woods and among the granite rocks, and conveyed safe ly the precious freight to the summit. Here the company could enjoy an en chanting view of the surrounding sce nery, while a sumptuous repast was preparing by the Ryegate ladies. It was a feast indeed, accompanied with excellent coffee, prepared on the spot and with water and ice from the val ley below.
