BELLOWS FALLS, ATOIL 30, 1869.
Thanks to Senator Morrill and Ed munds for various public documents, also to Judge Tolandfor tie same and seeds. Over two millions a month is the rote at which the national debt has been paid during the last two months. Bo much for an honest administration. lion. C. W. Willard from the first dis trict of this State, made a speech in the House just before adjournment, directly against. the popular current there in re lation to Cuba. He took the ground that it was an absurdity to rush in hot haste after the insurrection in Cuba, im mediately after we Lad with so much alacrity and cordiality acknowledged the new government of Spain, against which was this revolt in Cuba. The speech is strong, well put, and may be regarded as the sober second thought We don't un derstand Mr. Willard to be opposed to a free government in Cuba, but rather that our country shall stand by consis tency and the Jaws of nations. Windham Comity Court. The April term of Windham County Court, commenced at Newfane, on the 13th inst. But two cases were tried be fore a jury, though a large amount of other business was done, Hon. James Barrett of Woodstock, presiding Judge, Hon. Peter W. Dean, Assistant Judge. Judge Jones of Dover, was not present till some of the last days of the term, on account of ill health.

Ninety-five new causes were entered on the first day of the term, and upon the calling of the old docket twenty cas es were set down for trial by jury. Thursday morning the Grand Jury came into court, presenting sixteeen bills of indktraent, and wero thereupon dis charged. The first case tried was C. J. Anthony v. J. F. Burrows. This was an action of covenant. It appears that Burrows agreed to loan $15,000, providing that certain mortgages on lands In several of the Western States, offered as security, proved good, and that during the nego tiations he advanced some $3,000, which was paid back, and also signed certain papers, in furtherance of and to complete the loan of 815,000. It appeared fur ther that one of the parties residing in Indiana died, and his estate was repre sented to be insolvent. Afterwards Bur rows was sued by other parties for the amount of the loan, which suit was re sisted by defendant on the ground that the securities gives him were not good, and that he signed the papers promising , the loan, without having understood their tenor. . The case was closely and ably contested on both side, and the jury returned a verdict for the defendant, on the ground that he did not sign the covenant under etandingly. Field and Tyler, and Wheel er for plaintiff; Howe, Davenport and Stoughton for defendant. . .. STATE CASES." : Siafe . Lydia L. A. Pratt. This was an indictment charging the respondent with killing and murdering her infant child at Grafton, Vu, Oct. 20, 1867, by smothering it to death with the clothes said infant then and there had on. The Ibleisover. evidence on the part of the prosecution I tended to show that the respondent, who was a resident of Jamaica, applied to the superintendent of the factory at Cav endish for work, Oct 2, 1867 ; that he . engaged her as a weaver ; that on the , morning of Oct 4th she gave birth to a child ; that she remained at the board ing house connected with the factory un til the morning of the 19th of October, when she left with her child for Bellows Falls on the early train ; that she went " from Bellows Falls to Saxtous River, where she was met by one Ebenezer Kingsbury; that respondent and Kings bury left Saxtons River with the child, about 4 P. M., with a horse and buggy, going towards Grafton and Townshend ; that about 7 o'clock that evening she - left the child on the door stone of the house of one Bailey in Townshend, where it was scon after found by Bailey, who carried it to his house, and then imme diately after notified the Selectmen of Townshend, who proceeded on to West Townshend, whore they came up with re spondent and Kingsbury, and upon its being charged upon them they acknowl edged they left the chili there, but that they would return, take the child and return it to its mother, they claiming it was not respondent's child, but one en trusted to thera to dispose of to some good family; that they returned and took the child from Bailey's about 3 o' clock Sunday morning, Oct 20; that from Bailey's they left on the Grafton road, passing through Grafton village about daylight, and from thence they went up the Windham road a few miles beyond Houghtonvillc, when at the sug gestion of the respondent, Kingsbury took the child, carried it into the woods and left it uear a certain hemlock log ; respondent and Kingsbury then return ed to Grafton, and thero took dinner, and from thence returned to the house of re spondent's father in Jamaica; that five days after this, Kingsbury returned to where the child was left, found it dead, and buried it near said log, where it was found in May, 18G8, by the officers of justice, they being piloted to the spot by Kingsbury, who had previously return ed to Jamaica, confessed the deed and given himself up to the authorities. The defence was merely an attempt to show that the respondent at the time of the commission of the offence was labor ing under puerperal mania ; also, that there was a fatal variance between the proof and the allegations in the indict ment. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty. State's Attorney Arnold and Wheeler for prosecution ; Eddy and Stoughton for defence. George Ingram convicted of larceny of $13 from Loren W. King- of New fane, was sentenced to pay a fine of 875 and costs, and was put in charge of Sher iff Bowker to work it out. Sylvester P. Hale convicted of obtain ing goods under false pretences, of Wil lard Frost of Brattleboro, was sentenced to hard labor in the State Prison for one year and pay costs of prosecution. Solomon Edson convicted of bigamy sentenced to hard labor in the State Pris on for six months and pay costs of pros ecution. Wilbur Gleason convicted of bur- clary, sentenced to the State Reform School for three years. George W. Shearer convicted last Sep. tember Term for larceny of two yoke of oxen; escaped from jail Sep. 22; recap tured Nov. 30 ; was sentenced to hard labor in the State Prison for six years and pay costs of prosecution. John Mitchell convicted of burglary, was sentenced to hard labor in the State Prison for seven years and six months and pay costs of prosecution. IMstress among: the Farmers. We learn from the St. Albans Messen ger that in most of the towns in the east ern portion of Franklin county there is much distress from the scarcity of hay and grain. The winter set in so early and has held on so .steadily and so long, that the majority of farmers miscalcu lated, overstocked, and are now obliged to suffer. For some three weeks past the condition of the roads has rendered it next to impossible to transport hay and grain from those who chanced to have a supply, and thousands of cattle and sheep have been kept on very small allowance. One farmer in Montsromerv. who had seven cows, lost three of them. gave away three, and the other is report ed likely to die. There . are numerous other cases of mortality among cattle, most probably caused by starvation, and now that the roads have been more pas sable, it is about as difficult to get relief as before. Unbaled hav sells at 816 a ton in St. Albans, but it would be nex to impossible to cart it ten or twenty miles in the country to reach and relieve the distress. As for grain, there is none, we notice that in Orleans county there has also been much distress. In Westfield the listers report one-half of the farmers out of hay. It is 822 per ton, and general locomotion impossible But the distress among the cattle does not seem to be wholly caused by the scarcity of food. Several well fed cows have sickened and died mysteriously The Barton Standard reports that one cow in that vicinity died after a four day's sickness, and the back part of her udder was black and the whole of it pu trid, and it is believed that some un named epidemic prevails. Happily, spring is at hand and we trust the trou- How Andrew Johnson tried to get Oen. Grant out of the Country. A noticeable article in the May At lantic, in illustration of the intellectual character of Gen. Grant, presents a num ber of reminiscences and anecdotes of its hero, that have never before been in print, and among them the following : Andrew Johnson attempted two years ago to drive Grant out of the country. It had become apparent that the Gener al of tho army was not a follower of the President in his reactionary course. Mr. Johnson had sought to compel Grant to order troops into Maryland immediately before a State election ; but Grant s tact and skill had defeated his purpose. Then Johnson determined to rid himself of his powerful subordinate. lie foolishly hoped to find Sherman mere pliable than Grant and he knew that if Grant ware sent out of the country, Shermau would com mand the army. Congress was about to meet, and it was necessary to act prompt ly, for emergencies might arise in which the use of troops would be all important to the President's schemes. So Grant, who, from the close of the rebellion, had been constantly urging the President to take more decided steps to insure the evacuation of Mexico by the French troops, was approached with what it was hoped would prove a tempting bait The President first sounded him in conversa tion, saying he wished Grant to go on a diplomatic mission to Mexico, in conjunc tion with the minister to that country.- Grant at once detected the object of the President, and declined the mission. Johnson, however insisted, and Grant still declined, the second time in writing, although the President had only address- ed him orally. After this, Grant was summoned to the cabinet meeting, when his instructions, already printed, were read aloud bv the Secretary of Stat without any reference to Grant's previous refusal. He at once, in the presence of the entire cabinet, declared his unwill ingness to leave the country on such an errand. Johnson was roused by this persistent opposition to his wish, and ab ruptly asked the Attorney General whether there was any reason why Grant, should not obey, whether the General, of the army could not be employed upon a diplomatic service. Grant at once started to his feet, and exclaimed : " Mr. President, I can answer that question without appealing to the Attorney Gen eral. I am an American citizen, have been guilty of no treason or other cvime, and am eligible to any civil office to which any other American is eligible. But this is a purely civil duty to which you would assign me, and I cannot be compelled to undertake it. An y legal military order you give me I will obey ; but this is civil, not military, and I de cline the duty. No power on er.rth can force me from it." The plotters were electrified and made no ansiver, and Grant, instead of resuming his seat, quitted the room. He was n.ot sent to Mexico. On this occasion he spoke flu ently enough, and none can ihil to per ceive the cogency of his utterance or the terseness of his expression. "!fet he must have been unprepared. He. could not have foreseen the exigency. But the same quality that so sudderjy prompted the assaults on Petersburg amd Donelson, inspired the language and the argument that baffled the President. The Star Spangled Banner was hissed in a Richmond (Va.l theater, the other night, and a number of armv offi cers left the house at the insult to the flag- : the population of India is about 151,000,000, of whom 110,000,000 are Hindoos, 2o.000.000 Mussulmans, 11,- 000,000 Non-Argans, 3,000,000 Budhiste, and 1,100,000 Asiatic Christians. A down-east girl being bantered one day by some of her female friends in regard to her lover, who had the mis fortune to have but one leg, replied : " Pooh, I wouldn't have a man with two legs they're too common !" Look at the plum and cherry trees and cutout all the black knots you can find. If past recovery, cut them down and burn them up, and ask your nearest neighbors to do the same. A tree in a garden well covered with it is as bad among the other trees as a man infected with the small pox among men. Interesting Experiment in Elec tricity. The Boston Journal of Chem istry gives the following amusing and instructive experiment: "Procure foil glass tumblers or common glazed tea cups, and having wiped them dry as pos sible, hold them over the fire to evapo rate any moisture which may still ad here to their surface ; for if there is the least moisture it makes a connection and spoils the experiment Place them up on the floor in a square, about one foot apart ; place a piece of lboard upon the tumblers, and have a person standing upon the board. This person is now com pletely insulated, the gl ass being a non conductor of electricity. Now take a common rubber comb, and having wound a piece of silk around one end of it, rub it briskly through your hair, and draw p the teeth parallel to the insulated per son's knuckles, leaving a little spnee be tween the comb and the person's hand. The result will be a sharp, crackling noise and if dark, there will he seen a succession of sparks. Repeat the pro cess until the phenomena cease. The person is now " charged " with electrici ty, the same as a Leyden j sr. To draw off the electricity, approach your knuck les to the person's hands or his nose (be ing careful not to allow any portion of the body to come in contact with his,) and there will be a loud snap and tho sparks w ill be very brilliant. If a cat be held so that the charged person can place his knuckles in proximity with the animal's nose, it will suddenly appear as if it were in contact with an electric bat tery. A glass bottle may be used in lieu of the comb, but it is not so well adapt ed for the purpose. Much amusement may bo derived from this extremely sim ple experiment, and some of our numer ous young readers will hasten to try it for themselves." A Belfast correspondent of tho Lewiston (Me.) Journal says the potato market there is very dull, and there are many thousand bushels yet waiting to come in from the surrounding towns. They bring only 55 cents a bushel. Sonio dealers are sending potatoes to Boston, which cost 80 cents, and got only 75 for them. White Pino. Tho new ruining region which is said to be so rich, and toward which such a rush.of emigration has been going on, is described by a correspondent of the New York Sun, from whose letter we make the following extracts. The district ex tends for many miles around Treasure Hill ; and though the ground is now covered with snow, aud no mining oper ations can be carried on, the miners start right out with picks and shovels and lo cate their claims. Disconsolate, weary and savage, I wan- Sdcrcdtho streets, observing the changes that have taken place in littloniore than a week. There are more tent-covered houses ; innumerable new board shanties Lave started from the frozen ground ; shops, gin rnills.and gambling hells have been built. There, is a new assay office ; here, another. There, a hotel ; here, a log hut There are twice as many men talking in knots, if they can endure the piercing wind which seems to blow from every quarter. It reminds one of Buffa- ' lo, where, when a man comes to a corner, he instinctively buttons coat and smash es hat tight down on his head. Tho ar rivals number I don't know how many a day perhaps two hundred j but they are changed in character. More of them are old miners, more are blacklegs and desperadoes, and more are women of cer tain character. More are keen specula tors and moneyed men from 'Frisco. More drunkards, and the material from which drunkards are made, throng the bar-rooms or lie in wait in every conceiv able place, hoping to ensnare a " flat." It is only the blessed, cursed wind that keeps the monte dealers and sw-eatboards layers within doors, but fhereare enough of them there. " Stakes ot considera ble amount, earned by the hard labor of weeks, are lost at faro and monte m half an hour, by brawny whiskered fellows, who know where more can be got. The scarcity of horses is noteworthy ; it is because a horse here would eat his head off in a month, with hay at 8250 a ton and 88 a week board. .Doss are more plentiful ; they furnish good revol ver practice to the miners. Some of the sip-ns stuck unon the habitations are worth transcribing. You have : " Red dorg Bill ; old frens call." " Restarrant ; all drinks and miners fits." (He means miners' outfits. " Branch of 'Frisco Hotel meals all hours." Essay offis, correct returns." " Information given relating to all claims. lodes, and mines." (This fellow is a sharper.) " Franz Unterschleifer from Freiberg. (Another swindler no such name on the Friebcrg record.) Dr. S. E. Crain, graduate of the College of Geneva, New York, and Li centiate of the Medical Board of Victo ria, Australia, gives particular attention to women and children." - This is just a little funny when one enumerates the women and children residing in the re gion. For a cup of coffee and a piece of beef spoiled in the cooking, this corres pondent paid a dollar and a half in coin. Roast chickens sell for two dollars each, apples and potatoes thirty cents apiece, and water, melted suow, thirty cents a bucketful. The White Piners are hard pressed for amusement in their evening hours, and are perforce driven to entertain themselves with whisky ot gambling. Only a week or two ago, however, Joe Coburn, a pugilist well known in New York and 'Frisco, gave several sparring exhibitions, in which he encountered all the leading men of fistic ambition in this region, and gained some money thereby. There is now a room where the glorious hurdy-gurdy rules mellifluous. Thehur- dy girls are almost without exception of German nationality, and honest of de portment. They seat themselves on a bench on one side of the room or all around it, and are ready and willing to dance or waltz with any rough miner who applies, for the customary fee of a dollar, to which sum, however, must be added the compliment of a treat, so that he who' would dance with a hurny girl must needs expend at least $1.50. To the credit of these girls be it said that they never get drunk, are always well behaved, and save money either to send home or take themselves there. Even in drinking their thrift is displayed, for they drink nothing, and earn so much more from the bar. A row originated in this place recently, which resulted in Daniel Flynn, better known as"Brocky," being shot by Pat O'Brien. The wounded man died next morning, while the mur derer fled on a stolen mule, and has not been heard of since. A good or even tolerable company of negro minstrels would do a driving business here for some time. Apologizing for puttine them under the head of amusements, let me say that the Masons and Odd Fellows each have an association here for benev olent and protective purposes. Both as sociations hold weekly meetings, and have large memberships. They serve actively in promoting a good state of society. Rents are enormously high. I verily believe that a pig-sty would command 8250 per month any where on Main street , in this place. No room can be had in any favorable locality short of 8300 to 8500 per month.

A little explanation, and you find your domicil in prospective hns been let over your head for 880, and the chances are some third man gets it at 890 after all. You go around among your friends, and probably indulge in some strong remarks about the luck of honor among house proprietors here. But the only sympa thy obtained is a laugh, coupled prooa blv with the remark, " Honor! Why, how long have you been in Whito Pine? TTnnnr'a nlnved out 1 People here are " on tho make 1" What d'ye s'pose they como here for ?" Tho same thing is tho case with lots. You see a lot ; you like it ; buy it ; or der the deed made out ; see it signed. You go after the money, and hunt your man up, only to find that someone otter ed him fifty dollars advance, and that the lot is sold. You splutter a little may bo, but you are completely taken aback by the careless, nonchalant reply " Oh stuff! What d'ye 'sposo I came here for ? Take a driuk, and have your money with you next time !" As a natural consequence, every thing in the way of real estate is advancing in value. A corner lot, 30 by 100, sold the other day for $8,000, gold. Another lot, 25 by 100, sold for 85,000, gold. Sever al good substantial frame buildings, for stores, are projected, but, as above stat ed, there is nothing yet erected worthy the name of a building. One man in vested 8450, in November last, in Ham ilton, and a couple of weeks ago sold his purchase for $8,000. A certain prop erty in Treasure City advanced from February 15 at 84,400, to $2o,000 on March 8. Although I have written o faro and other gambling institutions, you must not suppose that we have not responsible bankinsr houses here. In this district there are six legitimate banking houses. You can buy exchange on New York at 4 per cent, and can sell bullion (if you have it) for 11 per cent premium. The banking business pays well and is rapid ly increasing. " I Have Stopped Your Paper." Tho following anecdote, told by Philadelphia paper, is decidedly sug gestive : Many years ago, Mr. Swain, then ed tor of the Public Ledger, was hailed at the corner of Eighteenth and Chestnut streets by a very excited individual, who informed him in the most emphatic terms, " I have stopped your paper, sir,' and proceeded to explain the why and wherefore, all the time gesticulating wildly. " My gracious, sir, you don say so. tome with me to this onicc, ana let us see if we cannot remedy the mat ter. It grieves me that any one should stop my paper." Dowu Chestnut street to Third, the two proceeded. Arrivin at the office, Mr. Swain said, " Why, m dear sir, everything seems to be going on as usual ; I thought you had stopped my paper." Then and there the excited gentleman, whom the long walk, by the way had partly cooled, said that he ha stopped taking his one copy of tho Ledger. Mr. Swain was profuse in apologies for having misunderstood the meaning of hia late subscriber's words, and regretted that he had given him the tramp from Eighteenth street to Third, down Chestnut The gentleman went on his way home, a wiser if not a better man, marvelling over the stupidity of editors in general, and of Mr. Swain in particular. Before he left, however, he ordered that the Ledger be still sent to his address. Henry Waid Boechor says that when he was a student he trequeniiy walked thirty miles a day. On one oc casion, to see a certaiu family, ho walked fifty miles. We presume he finally DC- came a member of that family.

While Judge Archer of Marshall, Ind., was removing some boxes from a shelf one day this week, a mouse jump ed out of one of them and into tho mouth of the Judge, and started directly down his throat. Tho Judge had hard work to etop him, and was considerably scared. A man in Holyoke armed two of his neighbors with a mallet and a club to hunt a burglar the other night They went around the house in opposite direc tions, and meeting in the darkness be hind it proceeded to pound and whack each other in a fashion that would have been terribly effective if either had been the burglar. On looking over the papers of wealthy lady who lately died in New York, a paper was discovered stating that two pots of money were buried in the cellar. On unearthing them, one was found to be filled with gold and the other with greenbacks, the whole amount ing to $300,000. .

Several cases have recently occurred at New York arid Brooklyn where windows have been pierced and persons shot by bullets without the usual noise incident to the discharge of a gun or pistol. A correspondent of one of the New York papere states that these bullets are not shot from air guns, as has been general ly supposed, but that there is a new kind of gun now sold that somewhat resem bles the old cross-gun, except that in stead of the arrow or bullet being pro pelled by the elasticity of a bow, it is in this case accomplished by the equally forcible elasticity of an India rubber strap. A bullet placed in this gun and the strap being forcibly drawn back and then unloosened by a trigger, its sudden relaxation gives a force to the bullet but little inferior to the expansion of the suddenly released gases of gunpowder ; and this can be done without any great er noise than is created by the bow-gun as its bow is released. If these state ments are Irue, these weapons will prove very dangerous in the hands of assas sins, as the absence of any report at the time of shooting will greatly facilitate the escape of the persons using them.

To these three medicines Dr.J.ILSchenck of Phil adelphia, owes his unrivalled success in the treat ment of pulmonary Consumption, The Pulmonic Syrup ripens the morbid matter in the lungs, nature throws it off by an easy expectoration, for when the phlegm or matter is ripe a slight eougn will throw it off, and the patient has rest and the lungs begin to heal. To do this, the Seaweed Tonic and Mandrake Pills must be freely used to cleanse stomach and liver, so that the Pulmonic Syrup and the food will make good blood, behenck's Mandrake Pills act upon the liver, re moving all obstructions, relax the ducts of the gall bladder, the bile starts freely, and the liver is soon relieved; the stools will show what the Pills can do; nothing has ever been invented except calomel (a deadly poison which is very dangerous to use unless with great care.) that will unlock the gall bladder and start the secretions of the liver like Schenck'a Mandrake Pills. Liver Complaint is one of tho most prominent causes of Consumption. Schenck's Heaweed Tonic is a gentle stimulant and alterative, and the alkali in the .Seaweed, which this preparation i made of, assists the stomach to throw out the gastric juice to dissolve the food with the Pulmonic Syrup, and it is made into good blood with out fermentation or souring in the stomach. The great reason why physicians do not cure Con sumption is, they try to do too much; they give med icine to stop the cough, to stop chills, to stop night swenta, hectic fever, and by so doing the derange the whole digestive powers, locking up the secretions, and eventually the patient sinks and dies. Dr. Fchenck, in his treatment, does not try to stop a cough, night sweats, chilla or fever. Remove the cause, and they will all etop of their own accord. No one can be enred of Consumption, Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, Catarrah, Canker, Mcerated Throat, un less the liver and stomach are made healthy. , if a person has consumption, of course the lungs in some way are diseased, either tubercles, alwesses, bronchial irritation, pleura adhesion, or the lungs are mass of inflammation and fast decaying In such cases what must be done ? It is not only the lungs that are wasting, but it is the whole body. The stomaeh and liver have lost their power to make blood put of food. Now the only chance is to take Dr. bchenck s three medicines, which will bring up a tone to the stomach, the patient will begin to want tood, it will digest easily and make good blood ; thon tne patient begins to gain in flesh, and as roon as the body begins to grow, the lungs commence to heal up. and the natient trets flMiho ami ii Tk:. .1 ly way to cure Consumption. When there is no lung diseaseand only Liver Com plaint and Lyspcpsia, fvhenck's Seaweed Tonic and Mandrake Pills are suflicient, without the Pulmonic j-ytxv. taut) iue inanurano 1'iiis freely in all bu llous complaints as they are perfectly harmless. Dr. fcchenck, who has enjoyed uninterrdpted health for many years past, and now weighs 225 poonds. was wasted away to a mere skeleton, in the very last stage of Pulmonary. Consumption, his physicians having pronounced his case hopeless and abandoned him to his fate. He was enred by the aforesaid med icines, and since his recovery many thousands simi Ury afflicted have used Dr. Schenck's preparations with the same remarkable success.
