White It in not only with surpriso but exceed ing orrow that we have this week to re cord the death of Rov. Pliny II. White, of paralysis of the brain, which took place at his residence iu Coventry, on Saturday morning last. He was a na tive of Springfield, and about 46 years and six months of age, having been born Oct. 6, 1822. His remains were brought to Westminster on Tuesday for burial. He has long been known as a clergyman and a distinguished historian, and had been pastor of the Cougregational church in Coventry -nearly eleven years. Chester. Our community has again been visited with" one of those sudden calamities that should warn us nil of how uncertain is our tenure of life. On Monday, the 2Gth inst., Derrick L. Sprague, a well known aud highly es teemed citizen, was stricken by the hand of death after an illness of less than forty-eight hours. Mr. Sprague was a ge nial, companionable man, one of whom we can truly say, " his hand was against no man." His sudden death has cast a deep gloom over the community in which his daily presence for so many years ha3 been so kind and so useful, aud the af flicted at his home and the bereaved in the land beyond the sea have the heart, felt sympathy of all who knew him, in this their great sorrow. Mr. Sprague was 50 years of ago and a member of the Olive Branch Lodge of Free and ac cepted Masons. Building is quite lively again this sea son. Mr. Garfield has nearly completed a two story building near the depot to be used as a marble shop. Mr. Artemus Holden is erecting a new dwelling on Bridge Street Mr. James B. Cram is about to erect a steam mill near the de pot, and Chas. W. Abbott has in process of erection a carriage manufactory near his residence. It is not so generally known among our farmers as it should be that there is at the Town Clerk's office a valuable Ag ricultural Library consisting of some two hundred volumes treating on the va rious subjects interesting to the above class of citizens and instructive to all who desire to know more of mother earth and the fruits she bears. . Teacher's Institute. The Teacher's Institute for Windham County, will be held at Graflon, May, 4th and 5th. Mr. Rankin, the Secretary, will deliver a Lecture, Monday evening. Teachers twd the friends of education are cordial ly invited to attend, for whom the citi zens will endeavor to provide entertain ment. Wai,poi.e,N. II. B. H. Dwinell and Son of Walpole have a three-fourths Durham, one-fourth Ayrshire bull thir teen months old, raised by them, which girts five feet 10 inches, and weighs 1000 lbs. Geo. T. Kingsbury of that town re cently sold to Do Wolf and Prouty, drov ers, one hundred and fifty sheep, for one thousand and fifty dollars.being an aver age of $7 a head. It is said that 5000 sheep have been fatted and sold out of Walpole to the Boston market during the past winter. - Bates and Aldrich have got their steam works for the manufacture of shirts in full operation. They are enterprising men aud have recently expended in va rious ways, repairs, putting in steam, &c, some 110,000. They have some eighteen or twenty sewing machines, and the man ufacture of shirts, stitching, hemming, drying, polishing, &c. is all done by steam. They are now working at the rate of sev enty dozen shirts per week, but have a capacity of one hundred dozen. They employ forty hands, only three of whom are males. Thus a large business has been built up in that place, and the en terprising proprietors keep everything in connection with it fully up to the prog ress of the times. Jamaica. M. Revello Howard of Ja maica, recently sold a pairof oxen weigh ing about 3500 lbs., to a man in Athol, Mass., for the round sum of 8340.

Pease, Florence Southgate 2, W. Williams. Drowsed. Mr. George Christie of Canaan, Vt., and Warren Hilliard of Stewardstown, N. II. opposite Canaan, were both drowned ncarMcIndoe's Falls, in Barnet, on the 25th inst. They were enterprising men, and had been engag ed in getting out lumber, and had en gaged a largo number of logs toTarious parties on the line of the river, among whom were Tarbell, Tolman, & Co. of this place. At the time of the accident, they were engaged in what is called "driving the river"' and had a large number of logs in the rapids at that place. They were in a boat which was seen to suddenly capsize, and thy have not been seen since, and their bodies had not been found at our last accounts. Mr. Hilliard was a young farmer of about thirty, and we believe leaves no family. Mr. Christie was about 45 years of age, and we are iufonned leaves a wife and four children in destitute cir cumstances, and upon whom this sudden bereavement falls with crushing force. The Story of Mnttie Kllburu and Iter J'utlior. On the outside will be found a very pretty but pathetic story of " Poor Mat tio Kilburn," which we find anonymous ly floating in the papers. The author, whoever he may be, has doubtless drawn ou hia imagination somewhat for his pa thos, at least we trust it was so, hoping that no such terrible disaster as starving to death in a hollow tree happened to any little Mattie Kilburn who ever lived in Walpole or elsewhere. The name of "Mt. Kilburn" was given to "Fall Mountain " Sept. 23, 1856, by the class of 1857 of Amherst College, who made tho excursion to this place for that pur pose, the sarao class " from Middlcbury College being present also, by invitation from the Amherst class. Tho cxereiscs on the Mountain during the day and at the Island House in the evening, were reported by us at the time and appeared in full in this paper. The name was giv en in honor of Col. Kilburn, who so he roically defended a fort against the In dians, a hundred years ago, on the south end of tho Mountain, and who was the first settler in Walpole, N. H., in the year 1749. He was not killed in that battle as the story above referred to has it, but lived highly esteemed in that town for his virtues, and died in peace. As this place is just opposite where the battle was fought, and as many of the present residents of this village have come here since the account of christen ing the Mountain was published, we give below an extract from the speech of the late Prof. Hitchcock at the Island House, in the evening of the occasion above mentioned : " He thought the mountain had been appropriately named. He was much pleased with the speeches on the moun tain, but he recollected one instance in relation to Col. Kilburn which he be lieved was not mentioned, and which he would relate. Col. Kilburn and three men were returning from a saw-mill, each with a sack of meal on his back, when a peculiar growl from a faithful dog indicated the certain presence of In dians. Kilburn with great sagacity commanded the men to drop their sacks, spring up and give a war whoop and then drop in the grass, which they did and were immediately fired upon by 400 Indians. They then took refuge in a log house, where they heroically defended themselves, but bullets failed. And now, Prof. H. said, he was going to tell what Mrs. Kilburn did, for he liked to do honor to the ladies. rLauchter and applause. Mrs. Kilburn hung up a woolen blanket before the window, and caught the balls from the enemy, and as they flattened against the blanket, through which they would not pass, and as they fell, Mrs, Kilburn would take them to another part of the house, and there re-cast them and hand them over to the men to be used against the In dians from whom they had first been re ceived. Applause. Prof. II. gave another instance of Kilburn's heroism. Some of the Indians who could articu late a little English, stole up near enough to the fort to cry out to Kilburn " old Joe, little Joe, (meaning Kilburn and his son) come out here give you quar ter," to which the intrepid Kilburn bold ly and loudly roared out " get out of the way you black rascals, or we'll quar ter you !" Laughter and prolonged applause. Immediately a volley of bullets riddled the whole house, but Kil burn was unharmed. Prof. H. hardly thought the history of the world furnished a parallel to the courage and heroism of Col. Kilburn in defending his fort. It was certainly be yond that of Leonadas. The Indians were driven away and did not dare to return." Vermont News. Edwin B. Stevens, of Thetford has within three weeks shot 150 crows, kill ing 19 at one shot, 17 at another, and no less than eight at any one shot. - The copper mines of Vershire yield about 6,000 tons of copper a year, aver aging 10 per cent pure copper. In Montgomery, a boy 5 years of age, son of Joseph Lombra, was drown ed in a brook Wednesuay, by the caving in of the bank, as is supposed. Charles S. Leonard, of Glover, has gone into the woods some three or four miles to sugar. He intends to sugar till the first of July, and then go to haying. The dwelling house and horse barn belonging to J. W. Erwin, of Troy, was burned last Saturday morning, together with all their contents. - Estimated loss about $1,200, insured for $300. J. L. Sanders, of Albany, has a three year old heifer came in this spring from which he makes over a pound of butter daily, besides furnishing milk for his family. - The Rev. II. I. Campbell, of Al bany, met with a serious accident while taking down a barn on his farm in Low ell. It is thought that several of his ribs are fractured. The Barton Standard reports that a few evenings since the members of a small union church in Sheffield " met to choose officers and decide when each of the two dissenting parties, should occupy the house. During the meeting difficult ies arose which resulted in the lights be ing blown out, and a general fight being entered into. Some were knocked down, others pounded and severely bruised. It would seem to be to the credit of the peo ple in this union district to have bnt few of these meetings." Mr. G, Sargent, of Newport, has a pair of Brahams, two years old, w hich weigh 28 1-2 pounds, the rooster weigh ing 15 pounds and the hen 13 1-2. Jamos Homer, of North Troy, with the aid of one man, recently sawed for Guy Woodard 190 cords of stove wood in 20 hours, with one of Rollins' two horse power machines, t Smith Cammett, of Newport, has made and bunched about 70,000 spruce shingles during the winter. Mr. C. is a cripple, and unable to walk without two staff's, and is in his 61sr year. Mr. Wm. Lepper of West Euos burgh, has made thus far this season, 231 pounds of sugar from 35 trees, which is a fraction over six aud a half pounds to the tree. T. W. Park offers to give $120,000 if the Bennington people will add $70, 000 to erect two first-class hotels one atjBcnnington, and the other at North Bennington. The bodies of two infant female children were reeently found in the town "of Georgia, near the traveled highway, wrapped in a newspaper. . No steps have been taken to ascertain the circumstan ces connected with their birth, or cause of death. Last Friday week, Sylvanus Percy, of Morgan, about 70 years of age, while at work on a scaffold in the barn, fell a distance of nine fcet to the floor below, striking upon hia head. He so lar re covered from the shock as to regain his feet, went toward the house a distance of twenty rods when he fell insensible, and on Saturday he died. A remarkable case of restoration to life recently occurred in Irasburg : A young son of Sardls Yaw was given up as dead from membranous croup, and preparations made to lay him out, when a slight rattle was heard in the throat, the most vigorous efforts were used, and ho was again restored, almost as one risen from- the dead a warning to people not to remit efforts to save life as long as there is breath or a pulsation of the heart. OBITUARY. Died, at the residence of her ion, Hon. F. C. Robbins, in Lndlovr, April 15th, Mr. BETSEY ROBBINS. wMoir of David Robbins. and daughter of Ezekiel Perhain, formerly of Artiens- Some of the readers of the Tiuks may, perhaps, re member the father, and the husband of this good wo man, long years ago, when residents of this County. And as the aged pass away, thus severing the link in memory's chain which connects the present with for mer years, it is very appropriate to make a record of such periods and personages, though necessarily brief, Mrs. Robbins was born in Hinge, N. II., in 1789. In 1795, removed with her parents to Athens, and there, at the age of 18 years, married. In 1837, with her family she removed to Perrysburg, N. Y where she has ever since resided. In the mean time having buried her father and hor husband there, she returned last October, to revisit her native New Eng land. And here, at the ripe old age of SO years, death claimed his willing off erinr. To these who were most acquainted with the sub ject of this sketch, two points in her character, in connection with her earnest devotion to the welfare of her own immediate housebeld, always attracted particular notice. An absolute enthusiast on the subject of Temperance, she adopted total abstinence from intoxicating liquors in all its forms, as her the ory and her practice fully twenty years before the world in general awoke to an interest in the subject. and held on her way unchanging to the last hour of her life ; omitting no opportunity to enforce the les son of Temperance, particularly on childhood and yonth. Nor was she less earnest on the subject of religion. When she was 12 years old, the Methodists first came into Vermont, soon after which she made a formal profession of her faith and hope and trust in the Sa viour of the world and for more than 60 years was a devoted and consistent member of that church.
