Daniel IL Hunt is preparing to build a hoe shop on water street. Widow Quinn fell down the hotel stairs last Saturday and broke one of her arms. The South Eastern Pi. R. will soon discontinue running their trains over the Passumpsic road to Derby Line. The Passumpsic will ran the spur to Stan stead, and the South Eastern trains will step at Newport. The terriffic thunder storm of Satur day seems to have produced a change in the weather, and this morning opens bright and warm. Now is your time farmers only about three weeks to do your spring's work in. jump for it. M. Burnham killed a Brahma hen last V.'ediiesday, that weighed after she was dressed, nine pounds and two ounces, and yielded two quarts of oil. She was too fat to eat. If there is a hen in Orleans County that beats this, we should like to hear of it. Philip Hunt, who died yesterday, was the oldest man in town. He came to Vt. from Kingston, N. II., many years ago. and has since resided in Montpelier and Barton. He was the father of 2.1 children, nearly all of whom are now living. home fifty persons men, women and children responded to Wm. Brown's general invitation to his last sugaring off. last Thursday morning. May 7. The suar was almost as nice as that made the first of the season ; but Bill., as well as most sugar makers, has got enowgh of it, gathered his buckets, and will let the next run go where the wood bine twineth. The next day, May 8, a squad of footmen gentlemen only surprised Osman Dwyer in the sugar bush, also cooking some syrup. Just such a time was had as men most always have when a few are gathered together to spend a leisure hour and drop for a while, the fret and cares of business. All who attended the above places of amusement, feel grateful for their free admission, highly compliment the man agers for their politeness, and hope for an opportunity to do the same thing next year. What are we going to do about our dilapidated side-walks this spring ? The time has come when we ought to begin to brush up and pick up for summer. Our neighbors in other villages are al ready making improvements in side walks, Btreets, and upon the fences and premises. If we make the appearance of our village what it ought to be, there is much work to be done. Every man can do something towards beautifying and improving his own premises, and means can be raised by a little effort to do the puclic work that is needed. We should not aspire to great things until we demonstrate a willingness to make such internal improvements as can be made with little outlay and effort. There are many places where trees ought to be set out, and many old fences that can he whitewashed if not painted. As the cold Spring is the theme of much conversation, a few facts relative to the weather in rears past may, per i . haps, be read with interest by some I The 1st, 2d and 3d day of May, 1847, now fell three feet deep; May 14, 1849, SDw fell four inches and very cold ; -May 2d, 1851, it snowed hard all day ; ' May 1st, 1852, snow lay on the ground ; t wo fret deep, and cold; on the 14th, large snow banks were to be seen ; May j Mh and 7th, 154, snowed, and very j i i ; May 21st, 1855, snowed til day, j and cold; May 30th, 185C, snow fell "ii inches and was not all gone the 1st ; Jay of j une ; corn was harvested that J tar in ninety days Jroni planting al j ripe and an abundant crop ; it was i ery wet, warm seasou.

SOUTH BARTON. v C. O. Drown has finished plastering his new house. Rev. F. Randall gave a practical dem onstration of his belief in immersion a few days since, in attempting to cross Bean pond on the ice. He went through the ice, but succeeded in reaching a log. and getting out, a wetter and wiser, if not a better man. The troubles existing among the lions and lambs are increasing, F. Randall has brought a slander suit against A. Q. Evans, ard Evans threatens to arrest Randall for irregularities in the post office. In the mean time an attempt is being made to get the post office away from Evans. Better get together and settle up the whole matter, without further fighting or scandal. BROWNINGTON.

The Vermont Emery Wheel Manufac turing Company, of West Charleston, was organized a week ago last Friday with the following directors : L. W. Clark and Charles Carpenter, of Charles ton, Emera Stewart and Hubbard Joslyn, of Derby, R. P. Stewart, ofBeebe Plain, John Currier, of North Troy, and Charles K. Alden.of Boston. j CRAFTSB UR Y. ' ! Hay has heretofore been considered plenty, but suddenly has become scarce, and the price has risen from ten and twelve dollars per ton, to eighteen and twenty. Many tons that have been pressed for market, find a market at home. Messrs Davison &; Randall who came to town the first day of May with a drove of cattle, report snow four feet deep on Lowell Mountain. They found it difficult to get their cattle through. GLOVER Wesley Aldrich has made 4500 pounds of maple sugar this season. Mrs. L. F. Parker has just returned from Boston with a fresh supply of goods. tVesley Scott has bought and moved into the house recently occupied by Dr. empleton. Lyman Darling has secured him self .a permanent situation, by purchas ing the blacksmith shop of Ira Strong. The superintendent of schools had 2G applicants for cirtificates to teach, at the public examination, only half of which were successful. Mr. Charles Lynds, last week bought a Jersey bull of the Fairbankses, of St Johnsbury, paying 75. Alonzo McNeal of Barton, last week paid the same men the same price for a heifer calf. GREENSBORO. The "boys" are talking "Bond" again. We hope they will talk to some purpose, or it is a good thing for the boys, and agreeable to the rest of us. The "Bulls and Bears," alias Jtfc Clary and Hancock, made the butter market quite lively here last Thursday. The price was advanced 7 cents a pound. The farmers like this amazingly. xarraers nereaoouts are winding up 1 1 , , ... sugaring, having had a successful season ; but 6ome would rather have less sugar. and more hay, judging from the loads run on to the hay scales, in the village. fThe, people of this town and vicinity will be pained to learn of the death of their old friend and townsman, Oliver Ellsworth who has been a resident of Waterloo Iowa, for nearly twenty years. They say Sam Hill meditates taking a partner, but the one he has in his eye, he thinks drinks to much "water," and as water is not very plenty at the "Bend" (they run things by steam there) he is in doubt as to the propriety of linking his fortunes with his. So we presume "Sam" will run his establishment alone for the present HARD WICK. The public examination for teachers in this town occurred at the primary school-room on Saturdav. May 2d. Six presented themselves for examination five ot whom passed successfully. Miss Sarah Burnham has charge of our vil lage school for the spring term. Rev. C. Tabor, for the last two years pastor of the Methodist church at this place, preached his . farewell discourse here on the 3d. There was a good at tendance, although the roads were fair ly execrable. While the pleasant rela tions of pastor and people are now to be broken, Mr. Tabor carries with him to his new charge and home in Franklin, the best wishes of his many friends in this section. IRASBURGH. Willard Barry has leased and will move on to the L. D. Larbee farm. It is estimated that from sixty to sev enty-five thousand pounds of maple su gar have been made in town during the present season. The prospect of getting the fair ground of Orleans County Agricultural Society located at Irasburg is decidedly encour aging. The Select School at Irasburg Com mon taught by Mr. James Kennedy of Troy, closed the 1st inst. Though the number of scholars was quite small, the school under Mr. Kennedy's excellent management was a success. A thunder storm of unusual severity occurred the 9th inst. At noon day it was so dark, that at the hotel and at many private dwelling houses, lamps had to be lit to enable the inmates to perform their usual work. The Irasburg Library Association has just made another addition to its books. Though a small library when compared with those of much larger places,, yet it is said to be the best selected public li brary in the county. E. W. Powell, proprietor of the Iras- burgh House, has just put in a set of Howe's, platform scales for his own cou venience, though he is ready to acconi modate his neighbors, if they have any weighing to do. LOWELL. Henry Richardson has moved to the farm he bought of Marcus Marr. Man- has moved into the L. Shoefelt house, in the village. N. F. Hutchinson has let his farm to Carter Fowler for one year. Hutchin son expects to go west to recruit his health and see the country. At the regular meeting of the Mt Nerris Lodge of I. O. G. T., May 6th, the following officers were installed : D. E.

Campbell has done all the work in his sugar place, except hiring a man to boil for him one flight, and made 2, 000 pounds of extra .dry sugar, taking care of a stock of cattle meanwhile. In condensing our Sutton news last week, we got a little . mixed as to the gender ot Bertie Ainger, -who turns out to be a boy instead of a girl ; and in re gard to the E. N. Eastman item, which should have given an account of the amount of sugar made in the orchard known as the E. X. Eastman orchard, etc. Ed. Lewis Parker moved from . this town to Nebraska last fall, with his ! family, consisting of a second wife and two boys, one D year old and the other 10, by a former wife.. It appears that when spring came,- the boys took a dislike to either the country or their step-mother, and determined to return to their native land. .Accordingly they started in the absence of their : parents and traveled about ten miles towards Omaha, which was about fifteen miles distant. The youngest boy became discouraged, and they returned home. About four weeks ago, the oldest boy (now 1 1 years old) started again on foot and alone towards Omaha and without money. There he took the train and came the whole dis tance to this place, where he arrived a week ago, supported and conveyed by the generosity of the people and railroad officers. He saw no one that he knew during the whole journey. We think his head is level. NORTH TROY. J. M. Norris, tailor, has opened a shop over Elkins store. D. W. Kelly lias recently -returned from Boston with a , large and well se lected stock of watches, jewelry and books. , The North Troy, PaUadiam, is the name of the newspaper soon to be pub lished here. The first number will be issued in about two weeks. Hay i3 very scarce in this section and finds a ready sale at 'from 20 to 25 per. ton ; those having it . on , hand are afraid to 11 even at - trios figures. Repairs are in progress on the Baptist meeting house ; the roof has been shin gled, and the inside is being re-plastered. A new organ and a bell are among the contemplated improvements. Wm. G. Elkins intends to build a wholesale store near the depot. It will be 60 long by 36 feet wide, with . two floors and a basement The work will commence as soon as the frost is out of the ground and the foundation can be laid. Last Friday (butter-day) was a busy day in this village. Messrs Beeman, White, Patch, and Eddy, were the buy ers, and the best lots brought 33 cents. Mr. Beeman received at Col. Elkins store and bought Gl tubs. Messrs White. Patch, and Eddy, received at G. Z. Braley's store and took in 100 tubs and 200 pounds " in boxes. Averaging the weight of the tubs at 40 pounds each, which is considered a fair estimate, the aggregate number of pounds sold was 6640 ; this at 32 cents per pound netted the producers $2,124.80. WES T FIELD. Quite an accident occurred in this town April 30th. Emery S. Miller, who is about building a new house, was at work in the cellar with his hired man Wallace Miller, siuking a large stone that he did not wish to use in the wall by digging by the side of it, when it started before they expected, catching Mr. Miller and burying him to his hips. and remained in that position a half hour until they could send to the neigh bors tor help. 1 he result was he had one bone of the leg broken below the knee and a very severe cut on the other which is worse with the bruises than the broken limb. Wallace saw the stone start and sprung to get out but was not quite quick enough, but only got one leg caught which was very badly bruis ed, and both bones broken below the knee. They are under the- care of Dr, MeKenzie and are both doing well. Express. WESTMORE. Phineas Wheeler has moved to Brown- ington Center. Mrs. E. B. Hayward has sold her place on the lake road, to Homer Fogg. W. L. Morse lost a fine grade year ling one night this week by its getting hung in the barn. Capt F. Randall started his sawmil last Monday and is now running it night and day. It is doing a good business UXCLE SAMUEL'S STRONG- BOX. The editor of the Bennington Banner has lately made a visit to the U. S. Sub Treasury at New York, and saw sights that made his own possessions look Try insignificant indeed. He gives the fol lowing account of what he saw "Gen. George Ashley, chief of the Coin Division, accompanied us into the coin vault, and in amongst the limitless mass of precious metals under hi3 supervision and charge. The hoarded millions com mitted to the special care of Gen. Ash ley are lodged in sectional compartments of the large iron vault sealed casements loaded to the muzzle with every possible denomination of bullion ; also piled up in tagged bags, within the iron wall were loaded bags of "short coin,", which by the abrasion caused by the materia wear and tear of constant use, had be come depreciated below the standard value and was listed for shipment to the mint for rccoining and restoration to its original value. On the offer of Gen. Ashley to give us one of these bags containing $100,000, if we would carry it, we tugged vigor ously at it, but was compelled to decide that we need not ask for his permit to pass us and the money bag through the cordon of detectives employed to keep watch and ward against any clandestine "removal of the deposits." We couldn't lift even this little fraction of the- huge mass of accumulated specie. Gen. Ashley also took us through the currency vault, wherein is stored anoth er vast quantity of the nation's reserved wealth. Here is a bewildering immens ity of greenbacks. Legions of carefully folded packages, each of which is label led high up on the road to . riches. . Here we almost wished the gentlemanly cus todian would repeat the generous offer he had made to us in. the coin vault ; but he did not. He kindly suggested, however, that perhaps we would like to feel rieh for a little while and allowed us to hold a million of dollars in seach hand," long enough to say- that we knew how persons felt when burthened with two millions of dollars in legal tenders. Notwithstanding any capricious ideas we may have entertained against currency inflation, we passed back the million aire packages with much greater regret than we had surrendered the paltry $100,000 golden bag, of harder and heavier cash. '. The cashier, Mr. W. Y. White, dip ping scoop into a box of gold, weighed off the required amount, bagged it, and passed it to the creditor with an alacrity that shipwrecked our previous knowl edge of how gilt-edged checks are cash ed. Hundreds of thousands of dollars are thus weighed in the balance for those that are found wanting it ; and so pre cise, careful and exact is this disbursing officer, that not the least error occurs in his vaBt transactions. Just at the rear of the cashier were three clerks, all experts, engaged in weighing the gold received by the assis tant treasurer, at the sub-treasury. With scales adjusted to the nicest precision they try each gold piece received, and if it varies in the least from the true standard, it is cast into the waste-box, instead of being dropped in amongst the pure and perfect coin. The light weights all go direct to the mint, where they are recast and returned, worth by actual weight the value -which their familiar signet gives them in the commercial world In the department for condemned coin we were surprised at the expertaess of the detectives who have charge of that branch of examination c inspected several coins of various denomination which we unhesitatingly pronounced "sound. Jo the average judgment they had no appearance of beinr spurious r By cutting the condemned pieces with a cold chisel, we were speedily , convinced that -ail is not gold that glitters ;" they were filled or stuffed with the cheapest and basest of metal, and hardly worth a dollar greenback.

Y., give account of a terrible boiler explosion, whi:h occur red in a large paper mill in Shawangunk, last Saturday afternoon, just as the em ployes were leaving the shops. The boiler which exploded was a large, rotary one, and the torce or the concussion nearly demolished the building, killing and wounding many of the laborers. Six were killed outright, and three fa tally wounded. The killed were tetri bly mangled. The boiler, weighing five tons, was thrown six hundred feet. There was intense excitement in the village, and a crowd threatened to lynch Franter, the Superintendent of the mill, who, it is claimed, was guilty of crimi nal negligence in using a rotten and condemned boiler. The mill was recent ly erected at a cost of $100,000 on the site of an old one burned in 1872. 1altimore, May 2. A shocking out rage was perpetrated by two negroes on a negro boy named James H. Woodley, aged 15 years, in Howard county, on the 15 of April. According to the boy's statement, the two men, without provo cation, scarred and branded his limbs in a most cruel manner with a red-hot iron and afterward poured spirits of turpen tine over his naked body and lower limbs, and set him on fire. In this condition he escaped from his persecutors, and succeeded in extinguishing the flames, though in what manner he is scarcel7 able io tell. Woodley now lies at the Lombard Street Infirmary in this eitj his back and legs roasted to a crisp. His recovery is doubtful. It is reported that the persons who committed the out rage have been arrested. Hay is selling at Gran by, Canada, at $40 per ton ; at Waterloo.

Five years ago it was launched eutirely on its merits by the maker, who was well aware of all means creditable and discredit able winch are used to null new machines aud new improvements. It was felt that if the Wheel was betterthan those that had preceded it. the community would be able to find out the tact, and candid enough to appreciate it. Experience demonstrated the above principle to be correct. TESTI3IONIALS. Among the many testimonials that have been given in lavor of the "tiiant," its inventor begs leave to re fer to the following, all of whom are known, either personally or by reputation, to thu majority of the people. Listen to C. li. Drown, a life-long lumherman. and who has had as much experience in water wheels as most men ot his age. South Baktos, Vt., Feb. 5, 1873. LrKE lirziKix, St. Johnsbckv, Vt. : Dkak Sik Yon wished me to say what I think about your Wheel, bow 1 am suited and what it is doiug. I mirclinRed mv Wheel in July. 1877. so that 1 haye lnui a pretty giod opportunity iu the last five years' run ning to test and tind out all the good and bad points in its action. My water is very limited, so much so that my neighbors deemed me wild to think of using your heel, as at that time it was au experiment ou all sides, being your first Wheel, aud my departure from a breast w fieeL Yet when the stream was so low that mills below me shut down I was able to saw. I notice your Wheels are creejiiug into those milts. I believe when the water was lowest I sawed and delivered ou the cars Ti.ouo feet H-r month. I can aud do saw with the 40-mch wheel, easily, 10,000 teet a day, and by- driving can do more. I have sawed in an hour 2.000 feet, but l.OtiO is a fair average. In the month of May, 1872. I sawed in the working days of ten hours each. 246.494 feet. My head is sixteen feet, and have never seen the wheel, since 1 put the "t,iaiit iu. that 1 would dare put in the. place of it, nor have I seen the day or hour when 1 was not satisfied with its work. It is easily handled, and gives all the power there is m the water irom a partial to a lull gale. 1 uave been in the lumber business fortwenty-nve years.and have had a great tuauy water wheels under my observation. and tor driving machinery where power is wanted, would unhesitatingly say give me one of your Giant wneeis. loins ate, i.ii.i)KOs Wkstfikld, Vt., Sept. 8, 1873. LrKE BrzzKiL, Esti: : Dkak Sik In reply fli your emsuiry how we. liketl onr water wheel, we will say that we are lnlly satis fied. We have done more. but$iuess since we put in the Kiaiit Water Wheel in two months than we could iu six liefore. We now run a circular saw nf 4i inches, a clapboard mill, with turning lathe, diag saw, au edging saw aud shib saw. all al one time, with a ao iuch wheel ufch:g 130 inches of water under a 20 feet head. We can saw with bO inches of wafer l,0UO feet of uprnee bosrds in one hour, and will engage to saw 10,00(1 teet iu 10 hours, with to inches of water or tor feitone thousand dollars. We are now at this time planing clapboards, only using 22 indies of water, giving us plenty of power. It has another advautnge over all other wheels in running steady in sawing. In the boa id milt and clapboard mill we have to stop one whilst the other mill ruus, aud we can hardly notice any alteration iu speed, never shutting the gate from the time we start up until noon, unless something breaks. We believe it is the best wheel made ; it certainly is the best that we ever saw run. Yours very truly, X. C. HOYT It CO. Wkst LUntillk, Vt., Jan. 30, 1872. LrKE Bczzkll, St. Jounskckt, Vt. : Dkak Sir I now have in my mill one of vour 20-inch Giaut Water Wheels, under a. working head of about 12 feet with whieh 1 nm a sblngle machine, lathe mill, a boiling aud slab saw. 1 can run all the above ma chinery at once and do good business, with wheel drawing only 40 inches of water. In regard to strength, speed and economy of water. I consider it ahead of anything I have ever met. and would recom mend it to all who have low liead and a small quantity f water ai being superior to anv ot her wheel Yours 4.C., WM. UKICKETT.

We have ground into fine meal ou our corn run sixty bushels of corn per hour. On our prov ender run, iu the same time, we have ground seventy five bushels of corn iuto fine meal. On our wheat run we have ground 15 bushels of western wlreat ier hour, with a 20-iiich wbeeL VVb use a Ju-iueu wheel lor our coi n mill, and a 40-incli for our provender mill.
