Clement, was acquitted by the jury, in accordance witli the cuargo ot the judge, who, tlie Rutland Herald says, could not have ruled otherwiso according to the evi denco. It was shown that when Haven issued this particular certilicate of stock to satisfy his contract with Clein eut he actually held bona tido shares to ditirely cover this particular trans action; and Clement received from Haven theso bona lide shares, whieh were turned into the transfer olliee to olVset the certilicate issued to Clement. The judge ruled that while the cvi dence showed there had been an over issue of stock, tho particular certificate upon whieh this indictnient was brought represented geuuine stock be longing to Haven, whieh was turned into the transfer olliee for caucellation and completed a bona lide transactiou. In brief, the judge ruled that.the cer tificate issued Cleinent stood for geu uine stock owned by Haven, aud act ually turned over by him to the transfer olliee lor canccllatiou. there was an actual delivery of genuino stock for the certilicate issued, and no inilictment could be maiiitained that this particular certificate stood for an issue ot spurious stock. The charge of Judge Veazey was clear ou this point, and the jury could not do otherwiso than promptly acqiut Haven as nidicteil. Now whati It is clear that there has been an over- issue of the stock to a greater or lesser iniount bv sonieboily ; it is clear that there has been a disappearanco of 40,000 ot tlie cash ot the corpomtiou, for whieh soinebody is responsible. The corporation are lnterested to know who has "stuck" thcm witli a loss ot -10,000 and the spurious stock, for whieh someboiU is responsible. sliould suppose some prosecutions ought to grow out of this nequittnl of Haven as lmlicted, lor, while the eonrt ruled that the certilicate issued to Cleni- ent stood for genuino stock, the court said that it was m evidence that then had been an overissue of a certain ainount of stock by soinebody. To plain people it does seem asif an ener iietic aml acute prosecution on the part of the eorporutiou inight be. re warded by the knowledge of who stole 10,000 fioin the Rutland railroad cor poration aml who issued the spurious stock that it is in evidence soinebody has iittered. If the jmlieial niaehiuery and its engineers are good for anythiiig it, would seem as if two great crinies could not. be couiiuitteil in Vermont withoiit bringing the authors of thein to justice. It is a ciiiious legal net that is woven so fine as to catch all the poor little iniiinows, but cauuot. catch a fat pike, or if it catches him is so weak that it. cauuot keep hiin fiom bursting the net at the lirst, trial. We umlerstaml that the railroad comp.iny propose. at the propei tinieto prosecute every oue who has taken any nioney froin their treasury iiiilawfully, or over issued any stock. I'ast 'riollois.

Dr. Miner's report to Gov.

In Jell'ersou county, Ky., out of sixty-live school districts only fourteen tax themselves to keep school beyond the tcrni for whieh thev are stippoitcd by state tax. This is given as an illustration of a state of things more or less prevalent all over tho south. The color questiou and the tax questiou are tho great obstacles to the progress of educatiou at the south. The convention wisely declined to sup- iort any articular bill in favor of federal aid to educatiou, but appomted a committee to meinorialize Cougress iu favor of the priuciplo of national assistance to ediicntiou.
