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

WE OPEN
A COMPLETE AND FULL LINE
-OF-
Oefokd. 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. Last Satur
day night II. H. Conaut's harness
and trunk shop was entered and
desk broken open and plundered.
Loss about thirty dollars. Also Mr.
T. J. Fi field's house, where was
kept the town liquors, was broken
uto, but Mrs. Fifleld murderous cry-
frightened tbe thieves so that they
pan leaving what goods they had al
ready taken out of the house. Ev
idence is so strong it is hoped the
rascals will be brought to justice.
"God speed the time." COB.
Lyme, N. H., June 3, finds us
much as usual, the customary house
cleaning, whitewashing, painting,
&c, being already completed we
hope to pursue the even tenor of
our way.
The hot days of last week and
tbe beautiful shower of Sabbath
evening were very beneficial to the
germinating of the seed sown in
our gardens as to-day gives evi
dence. '
Much of the grass ou the farms
has beeu winter-killed and the farm
ers are plowiug up and planting
corn.
Mr. Hiram Mayo at the north part
of the town has a hen, which, for
the lost few weeks, has laid five
eggs, the average weight of which
is four ounces, two of the same
weighing five ounces each. He
had thought her to be of common
breed, but says now she must be a
"Jeffersouian Democratic hen."
The past and n resent tmnila of Mr. Mar
tin's school are requested to meet at 9 'clock
on Friday ,Juue 12, prepared to spend the day
t the Camp Ground.
