fv THE TRANSCRIPT, ST. ALBANS, yrldny. .JunoilU, I mm. New Yoiik, Juno, 20. Gold, 153. .1 m - - The Conner Convention -Mr. Mor rill Tor Senator. Tho fact Hint thcro nro two now Senators to bo nominnttd, nnd n ehnngo nindo in Homo of tho othor ofliccs, will undoubtedly cnll together n largo number nt tlio Republican County Convention, which wools nt Sheldon on Wednesday of next wool:. Moro importance attaches to tho nom ination of State Collators this year than there has for many ycaiB past As our renders nro awaro tho next legiblalnrc will bo called on to elect a United Stntcs senator for six years from March next, to fill Iho seat so long and ably occupied by tho lalo Hon. Jacob Collaincr. Tho two can didates for that position arc tho Hon. Justin S. Morrill nnd the lion L. 1 Poland. Wo favor tho election of tlio former becauso wo think ho is tho Iwt mnn for tho nlace: nnd in sayiiiK this wo do not wish to bo understood as casting tho least reflection upon the ability of Judge Poland. Mr. Morrill's long Congressional enrcer, his ac knowledged ubilily, his untiring in dustry, his integrity, his sincerity, his unswerving fidelity to tho great prin ciples of tho republican party, pre eminently fit him to bo tho successor Iho lamented Collnmcr. As chairman of tho committee) of Ways and Means ho has earned a national reputation liecond to no meinbor of tho prosont ablo Houso of Representatives. Can Vermont afford to lose such a man from tho nntionnl councils ? Do tho jK-opfo of tho Stnto desiro Mr. Morrill (o fitny at homo and havo elected a man who, to say tho least, docs not so fully, fairly and unequivocally ropro scnt their political sentiments, as Mr. Morrill? Wo think not, Whilo wo do not in this connection wish to express any preferences for tho Senators to bo nominated nt Shel don next week, wo do wish to urge upon our Republican friends, upon tho friends Jot Mr. Morrill, to elect such men for senators ns will vote right in this important senatorial contest. Other counties aro moving in this matter, nnd why not FranklinCounty ? Tub Constitutional Amknumcnt. Alio uonetitutionai amendment as adopted by tho Senate has passed tho House by a volo of 120 ayes to !12ni:ys a larger majority than it has been generally supposed it could obtain. Mr. Stevens, who, tho readers of tho Tiiansoiiiit will remember, said that tho amendment, with tho disfranchis ing section stricken out was worthless, advocated its passago in a speech of great force. Its ratification by three fourths of tho legislatures of tho States is now only necessary to make it law. Death or Gun. Cass. Gen. Lewis Cass died at his residenco in Detroit on Sunday nt tho advanced ago of bit years. Ho wns born in Exeter, N. H., , and removed to Ohio in 1800. lie beenmo a lawyer at Znncsville, in 1602; and in 180G was chosen to tho Ohio Legislature. Ho was niado Colonel and afterwards a Brigadier General during tho war with Great Britain. Ho wns Governor of tho Territory of Michigan soventcou years. In 1831, ho wns appointed Secretary of War by President Jackson, nnd af ter holding tho office fivo years was ap pointed minister to Franco. Ho was chosen a member of the United States Scnato by tho Legislature of Mich igan, for tho six years beginning Vermont Ueforin School. Tho formal dedication of tho Stale Rolorni School at Watorbury look placo on tho Villi inst., with interest ing ceremonies. Tho oxcreiscs, pre sided over by Gov.

If any expected to see such, thoy wcro doubtless disappoint ed in the plain, inexpensive and home like building, in which our Vermont I nlthletic man, who carried in Reform School boirins its existence. 1 hand ! These nro the homestead and out buildings of tho old Governor Butler Farm, half a mile west, of Watorbury village. It is n plain but comfuitablo two story dwelling of wood, with a good sized extension to tho rear. This last has been raised a stoiy and a now wing lias been turned on the west side. In its present shape, it affords nceom modntioiiB for from luvnty-four to thirty boys. A dining room of sufli eiont sizo, n wash room, and the need ed closets, Ac, fill the lower story of tho extension. Above, a dozen little bed-rooms, each with its narrow win dow and littlo iron bedstead, open into a hall, from which opens also a dormi tory provided with bunks. A singlo daik cell, proporly ventilated, with smooth walls and coiling of wood, is provided for purposes of discipline. Tho new L is devoted to tho school i scan replied, room, a light and pleasant room, to bo furnished with desks of tho Boston pattern, and designed also to bo used us tho chapel of tho institution. Tho necessary outbuildings partly sur round nu onclosuro to tho roar, othor wiso bounded by u fonco of twclvo or fourteen feet in height. This is the only indication of restraint, outside tho buildings, for tho inmates. Tho plan of Iho institution requires no elaborate systom of mechanical safe guards. At night tho school building will hold tho boys in snfo keeping. During tho day, thoy will bo for four hours, (two in tho morning nnd two in tho afternoon in tho school room, and tlio rest of tho day at work under jiropor and watchful supervision on tho farm.

Rousseau, member of the Houso from Kentucky, made n disgraceful as sault on Mr Grinnel), of Iowa, on tho 14th inst., which is thus described by tho Washington correspondent of tho Boston Juurmil : Thursday afternoon, whon tho House adjourned, it was raining fast with thunder and lightning, and the members Kouerally loft tho capitol by tho eastern portico to tako tho horso ears. As Air. unnnoil was crossing iho portico ho was overtaken by Gen eral Rousseau, u much taller and very c man, who earned in iiik rigui. a rattan cane, ono-third of an inch in diameter. Placing his left hand on Grinnell's shoulder, Housseau hurriedly asked him why ho had not retracted his remarks of Monday. Grinnel, rather astonished, replied that ho had nothing to say. Rousseau then declared that he would make him retract, and gave sevoro blows with his cane, right and left, in tho broadsword style in which Brooks assaulted Sumner, except thnt tho blows fell lower, two on tho shoul ders, two on tho neck, nnd two on the face. On tho last blow the cano was shivered into fragments and Roussenu ceased his attack. Meanwhile, Grin nell had endeavored to nrrost tho blows which were ninind nt his head, receiving n portion of ono blow on his hand. As Rousseau ceased, Grinnoll said, "You haven't hurt mo." Rous- I didn't want to hurt you; l wanted to uisgrico you, nnd withdrew, followed by several of his friends who had acted as his escort. While it must bo admitted that Grinnoll gavo Roussoau groat provo cation, by calling him, in the course of dobato, an "unmanly, incoherent, brainless dofondor of tho President" and other shainoful names, it does not in tho slightest degree justify tho nssaull.

Wo tako tho following oxtract from a condensed report of it: !'Ho declared himself an old Lino Democrat, behoving in tho doctrino of socosaion, behoving that tho sovoral States of tho Union hnvo tho right to soparnto from it, each acting for itself. Ho declared his belief thnt nbusos and usurpations had been practiced and threatened to so great an extent by their associates aud partners in this govorninont compact that tho Southern States woro justified in going out; and his further belief that by thoir ordi nances of secession they did go out, nnd thereby beenmo to this Union foreign States. Thoso convictions ho could r.ot change, and ho did not ex pect thoy would over bo removed. Ho would most assuredly proclaim them and stand by them as long as a singlo citizen of the Coufedornto States wns in chnins or subject to ponalty for nssorting them. Thoro was no politi cal or personal consideration which could prompt him to such a desertion. 'What, sir,' said ho, 'I, that boliovo them right; I, that would havo joined thorn if the sovorcign Stato of Mary land had said so, to desort them now, in thoir utmost need, when I can legi timately givo thorn such protection as is in my power honestly to givo? Novor.' " Ho donied that Andrew Johnson, coming from a foroign Stato, could legally bo President, of tho United States; ho bewailed tho fate of Mary Surratt; and ho finally wound up with reiterating that tho right of secession wns n ruling principlo of tho Domo cratio party n statomont which somo what nettled his friends in tho Houso. gambling at n faro bank. SuiutATT, tjih AssAssi.v.Thoro is nn apparently woll-grouudod rumor afloat iu Memphis that John ll.

A CttBO of intorost to holdors of U. S. bonds is thus stated in n Washington dispatch: "A case of interest to bondholders wna doeided on Friday by First Con troller R. W. Tnvlor of the Treasury Department, upon tho following ostab SinSI?0! ?Ir" Wmeo bought tou $1000 United Statos bonds, with con socutivo nunibors.

Mr. Tavlor doci dod that for tho bonds ami coupons returned ontiro, though sopnratod now onos Wu bp iued; for thoso stol- eii, but not recovered, now bonds can not bd issued. The law does not nti thorizo tho issuo of now for lost or stolon onos. Tho holder can collect tho interest coupons ns thoy mature, but nothing more can bo done." The Senatorial Question. I'HOM wamon's jouhkai.. Tho Rutland HcraUVs zoal for Jnduo Poland outrtinn discretion somowhat, and its hostility to Mr. Morrill prom isos to become impotent for its un reasonableness. In the oyes of tho Herald man, it is all right for Mr. Po land nnd Mr. Edmunds to become candidates for tho Sonato, but Mr. Morrill cannot do so, though in char acter, in culture, in political knowl edge, in general intelligence, in states manship, ho is nt least tho cqunl of either, and in congressional experi ence, service nnd success, ho is su perior tojjotb. Indeed, tho Jlcraid makes it n mistnko in Mr. Morrill to bo n enndidnto- a mistnko ngninst his party and tho Stale. It says: Mr. Morrill, moroovor, by this de termination, throws tho Republican party of tho whole Stato into political turmoil. JJy roinanung nt his present post, ns ho might do if ho chose, tho party would rcmnin united nnd hnr- monious, and tho Stnto would rotniu tho services of two good men in tho Sonnto, nnd also retain Mr. Morrill iu tho House, "in tho position for which ho is especially fitted." In every viow Mr. Morrill s declination is n mistnko for himself nnd his Stnto." Wo think that wo can suggest two wnys to sccuro hnrmony in tho party. First, lot Judge Poland duly considor tho demonstrations of public prefer ence and withdraw from tho contest. That would mnko perfect harmony ns fnr as Mr. Morrill is concerned, for ho hns no other competitor. Tho Stnto, too, could retnin Judge Poland in a position for which ho is "specially fit ted" by long oxporienco and creditable service, at tho head of tho Supromo Court. This is eortninly a fair nj)pli cation of tho Ilrrald'x argumoiiL But, secondly, let tho Herald and othor Western Vermont papors leavo Mossrs. Morrill nnd Poland's enso to Eastern Vermont. Wo aro ready to givo bonds that the people of Eastern Vermont will settle the question easi ly, quickly, nnd with quito as much harmony as haB attended the election of any Eastern Senator on any pre vious contest. Lot us alone, if you want hnrmony. Enstorn Vermont enn oxtond tho same courtesy to tho West, and so both sides may avoid all complications injurious to tho party of tho State. Horo is good ground on which to socuro harmony. Wo com mend it to tho consideration of tlio Herald. Tho' argument of tho Herald is thnt Mr. Morrill is "specinlly fitted" for tho Houso, nnd Mr. Poland is "speci nlly filled" for tho Sonnto; nnd it ns serts thnt Mr. Morrill will "lower him self to n second, third, or fourth rnto iu tho Sonnto," whilo Judge Poland will "stand in the front rank of Sen ators, ns did his predecessor." It is true that Mr. Morrill is "specially tit ted" for questions of tariffs, taxes" and finance; on thnt wo nil ngreo; but it is surprising that the If raid does not see that the.so questions nro ncted up on m tho Senate as well as in tho Hotihc, nnd therefore that Mr. Morrill is just ns "specially fitted" for the Son ate ns he is for tho House. It is posi tively nbsurd to say thnt ho will low er himself in that body; that ho who now primarily acts upon thoso ques tions in connection with tho Secreta ry of tho Treasury and the Financo Committee of tho Senate, does not now and will not horonftor stand just na high nnd bo just as useful in tho Sonato as in the Houso. Wo know that Mr. Morrill's reputation and in fluonco is now as high in tho Sonato as it is in tho Houso; and wo do not know thnt tho Herald's assumption of special fitness in Judge Poland, and particularly its claim of tho "front rank" for him in tho Sonato, has n par ticlo 'of truth for foundation. His standing as n lawyer and as n judgo is good, but wo hnvo novcr hoard that it was suporior lo that of mnnv other Vermont lawyers and judges. Wo know, indeed, of no ono -who over compared him to n Collnmer or a Phelps; of no ono who over claimed for him peculiar power or oloquenco as an advocate; and nothing in his briof senatorial career thnt indicntcs for him any rcmnrknblo roputntiou .in thnt body, or any romarknblo dogrco of popularity. Ho has nindo tivo speeches; but thoy indieato no power as n dobator, for both woro carefully written, precisely as a prudent judgo would writo out his opinion on nn im portant law case. Thoy indicated no originality, no vivneity of stylo, no brilliancy of illustrtttion,(such ns Judgo Collnmer would have thrown around either topic; but thoy woro simply in tho lino of Mr. Poland's fatnilinr du ties ns a judgo. Ho suggests tho sali ont points nnd gave his opinion. Thnt wns all. Shall wo deny that ho cannot do more ? By no means. Wo will not nssumo that ho cannot, bo cnuso that would bo just ns unreasona ble in us, ns it is in tho Herald to as sumo nnd assort that ho can. All wo say is that Mr. Morrill is, on tho whole, best fitted for sorvico'ju the Sonato, and to that point wo will add tho testimo ny of a compotont witness, who know Judgo Poland nnd Mr. Morrill well, and wns rather bettor than tho editor of tho Herald as n judgo of thoir fit ness for tho Sonnto. Onr witness is Jacoh CoLLAiiEit. Wo think it wns during tho session of 18G2 that Jndgo Collamor himsolf alluded to tho ques tion of his successor, and declared to us that in his opinion "Mr. Morrill is tho best mnn you win send to tho Son ato from Fiintnrri VnrmiMif " "VVn then concurred with Judgo Collnmer, as wo (to now--ot courso meaning that Jud"0 Collnmer was himself out of tho contest.
