Moral Don't go to West Corinth to fish ! Promenade concert at Academy Hall, Saturday evening, June 6th. The thunder shower on Sunday evening put a cooler on the hot weather for a while. Frosts have been in order every morning this week. Siibmirooke, P. Q., Juno 1, 187 4. Mr. Editor: Ou Monday night, the 25th ult, L. L. lurgeou, station and express agent at Stanstesd Junction, absconded. .The next day some of the omcials from Lyndon ville made an examination into the affairs of the station and found that all was not rignt ; some ioi or more being gone. Ue had collect ed freight bills and given receipts for the same, making no entry or the cash, but leaving duplicate bills as outstanding, as a baud. IJealso took three tickets to Quebec. Tbe Express Co. touud that tuey were short $180, which had been taken by him from a package containing $600, that arrived a short time be fore he left, tor another party at his agency. Wednesday morniug Frank Richardson of White River Junc tion, formerly express messenger on Pass. R. R., engaged the services of a sheriff at Stanstead and started for Quebec, where it was supposed Turgeou had gone, as be formerly resided there, and his household goods had been shipped there. At Point Levi, opposite Quebec, it was intimated that be was secreted ftii.oug the French population iu that vicinity. Engaging two de tectives, who satisfied themselves where he was secreted, but not dar ing to attempt an arrest, as there were several suspicious looking per sons about, they came back and re . ported to Richardson. Thereupon it was decided to surround the house where he was supposed to be, the next morniug at 3 o'clock, which was done, and the object of their search secured. Tbe suspicious characters seen by the detectives at their first visit, were still there but offered no resistance. All he said was "you have caught me." On Friday the prisoner was brought to BUnstead before a magistrate aud had a preliminery examination, was ordered to be confined iu Sherbrooke jail until otherwise disposed of by the higher courts, to wbiob place he was taken Saturday afternoon. It is a mystery why h didn't take tbe whole package of S660, instead of a part, as the punishment could not have been much more iu case he was caught, and bis family could have had a little something to help them with while lie was serving out bis time. . J, M. Orvnge County Confe rene t. The annual meeting of the Or unge County Conference of Cou gregational Churches, hold lit Wert itandolph biNt week, was one or un usual interest. The attendance from that part of the county was large, Kov. K. E. Ueirick, of Chelsea, opened the exercises with a very practical sermon, from the text "Tbe kingdom of heaven is like unto leav en which a woman took aud bid uj three measures of meal till the w hole was leavened." After show ine bow false was the somewhat pop ular idea that the church was solely for the comfort of Its members, rather than for aggressive work, the preacher stated bis subject to be "The duty of each local church to strive, up to its ability, to evan celizo the community immediately about it." This duty was set forth by reference to general command, to the example of the apostolic church and the history of modern missions. So practical was the sermon that it guve tbe key note to the devotion al meetings, and to many of tbe re marks during the session. The Sabbath School report, and the discussion of the question "How can the churches carry the Gospel to the unoccupied fields around them," were also practical presenta tions of church work. The largest attendance was at the evening session, which was opened by a praise-meeting, followed by an essay ou, and a general discussion of "family worship." Several very interesting instances of the influ ence of this Service upon the vari ous members of the family were given from personal experience. 1'i'oiu the report ot t he churches I gather the following statistics: Whole number ot churches, 20 membership, 1952; added during the year, 7 ; removed, 83. The church in Corinth received 11 mem bers ; the churches in Bradford Randolph and Strafford, 5 each and the churches in Chelsea, New bury and Tuubridge, 4 each. 1 lie Sabbath Schools connected with the churches report 2038 mem hers, a gain ot 2D8 during the year, The average yearly congregations in these churches was 2081. The amount of benevolent contributions exclusive of the support of tbe sev eral churches, was $2726.64. By comparing this report with last year's report for the whole State, I hud that only two other counties Windham and Windsor, have greater number of churches, while the average for each county is about 14. Only two other counties, Rut- laud and Windsor, have a greater membership, while the average for each couuty is 1281. Two other counties, Caledonia and Windsor, have a greater number iu the Sab bath school, while the average is lo7s. Rutland and Windsor also report a larger average congrega tiou, but the general average, by counties, is about one-third less, Of seventeen towus in this county, Xliroo mil no uoiii rga I uiiujuu , one town has three churches ; four towns have two each : and the re mainder one each. The Conference chose as delegates to the State Convention at North fitdd, June 16-18, Rev. C. M. Winch, Dea. U. A. Ulark and Silas nail ; and Rev. W. S.

Our quiet village was aroused to arms last Sunday morn iug when it was noised around that thieves and assassians were out, One year ago our indignation was at fever heat because we had not evidence sufficient nor power to punish a few roughs.
