The St. Johnsbury hoodlum has been at work on the observatory on Observatorj' Knob. An attempt has been made to lire it and if the perpetra tors can be found an attempt will be made to fire them. Correspondents and advertisers should bear iu mind that the uext Cal edonian will be printed a day earlier than usual, and their favors, to secure insertion, must be handed in on Mon day and Tuesday. Among the new locomotives, new to this section of the country, that have been brought into service on the Lake road aie the Daniel Webster, John C. Calhoun, General Sedgwick, and the Henry Clay is expected every day. Prof. Chapman, teacher of elocu tion at the academy, gives a reading at the Free Baptist church Tuesday eveniug nnder the auspices of the Ladies' social circle. A very attrac tive program has been arranged and a good entertainment is assured. Even the children imbibed the po litical atmosphere of the campaign just closed, and some of the smallest had "views." One three-year-old of repub lican proclivities who, by standing on tip-toe managed to rub his nose against the window sill, remarked on Thurs day night while the preparations were in progress for the illumination amid the pouring raiu storm : "I dens Dod is a deiuotwat." A jolly company of all sizes and ages enjoyed the entertainment by the Girl's mission band, under the direc tion of Mrs. George II. Cross, in the North church parlors Tuesday even ing. There was a successful sale of fancy articles, some capital tableaux aud a verj' social sociable. The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Phineas Dantorth met at their resi dence on Green street one evening last week to assist in celebiating the .'39th marriage anniversary of this worthy couple. There were 40 or more pres ent who brought with them substantial evidence of regard iu the form of nu merous gifts. Two weeks ago the Caledonian re ported the death of Miss Mary Garfield of Bradford, who had been for some time engaged in learning dressmaking in this village, aud who weut home sick with typhoid fever but a short time before her death. Yesterday her brother, George R. Gallield, aged 21, died -at "lii's home in Bradford of the same disease. There was a regular cyclonic snow squall Saturday and a regular delugic rain fall Monday, but two or three de lightful days of sunshine and moderate temperature have managed to crawl into the week, which people hereabouts have thoroughly appreciated. For a change a cold snap turned up this week, the mercury dropped to three degrees above yesterday morning. Special poultry trains will run as usual on the Passumpsic division and Lake road, taking poultry for Man chester, Nashua, Lawrence, Lowell and Boston. On the former road the train leaves Newport at 8 a. in., tomorrow reaching St. Johnsbury at 11a. m.; on the latter train leaves Swan ton tonight at 11.15 reaching St. Johnsbury at D.35 i. m. tomorrow. The enteitarnment given by St. Margaret's guild Monday evening though not largely attended on account oi tne oaa weatner was one oi tne pleasantest affairs of tho kind this sea son. There were both vocal and in strumental selections aud the tableaux were equal to anything of the kind ever presented in the village. Among the names that have al ready been "mentioned" as possible candidates for the position of postmas ter in St. Johnsbury are, Gen. II. K. Ide, A. W. Simpson, Henry French, P. J. Cowles, VV. W. Sprague. Aren't our republican friends just a trifle hasty in view of the fact that the present ad ministration holds on quite a while yet? The selectmen went over to the poor farm Monday to inspect the im provements in progress there. The new milk room and barn are completed and the work has been well done. Drains have been laid and other need ed changes regarding the sanitary ar rangements of the premises have been made. The heating problem has not yet been wholly worked out but is in progress of being solved. The presence of Inspector Whitte more on the ground yesterday started another post office flutter. Mr. Whitte more had no business here whatever in relation to the removal question, but was inspecting the oflice, which, by the way, he found in excellent shape. No, Postmaster Bowman has not yet received his orders for removing the office to Railroad street, and business is going on at the old stand as usual. "From Uar-Room to Pulpit." Rev. Sam Small of Atlanta, Ga., comes in the Y. M. C. A. course to morrow evening and the journalist evangelist will give in his autobiogra phy one of the strongest temperance talks ever heard in St. Johnsbury. Mr. Small is a college graduate of wide culture and travel, was for many years an editor of the Atlanta Consti tution and in 1878 represented our country at the Paris exposition. The story of his conversion and reforma tion, as told by himself, abounds in humor, pathos and thrilling adventure aud has delighted thousands iu all the large cities of this country. Christian Worker's Conference. The promise of a large attendance of Christian Workers at the conference December 13 increases daily. All of the following gentlemen have been in vited and returns from nearly the en tire list are already in with assurances that they will be here : II. M. Moore, C. J. Little field, II. H. Proctor, C. A Haskell, George E. Keith, F. O. Wins low, S. M. S.ijfonl, George II. Shaw, H. D. Smith, George H. Slade, Russell Sturgis, E. A. Lawrence, Allen Folger, Howard L. Poiter, Charles K. Ober, George E. Davis, I. N. Harris, C. M Bailey, H. II. Proctor, W. B. Franklin, G. W. Chase and N. F. II. Marshall. Mrs. R. K. Remington of Fall River, Mass., will also be here. Resignation of Rev. Ceo. II. Iialley. Rev. George H. Bailey, rector of St. Andrews Episcopal church in this place, offered his resignation last even ing, he having accepted a call to the position of assistant rector at St. Paul's church at Burlington. Mr. Bai ley will remain here but two Sundays more, his resignation taking effect the second Sunday in Advent. He has been with St. Andrews church about a year, coming here from Rich ford in December, 1887. He leaves St. Johns bury because of no unpleasantness, for he has the united support of his church, but because the offer of a larger salary at Burlington will enable him to oetier care for las family. PEKSONALi MENTION. Mrs. Clara Fesler has returned from Boston. John IJ. Harris of the Burlington Clipper was in town last week visit- iug friends. Frauk Holmes, formerly of St. Johns bury, is dav clerk at the Bardwell house, Rutland. G. V. Bangs of Mt. Pleasant street, who has been quite ill for some months, is now able to sit up. Mr. and Mrs. Edward Biugham of Cleveland have been in town the past week visiting Mrs. Bingham's sisters. Rev. C. F. Morse gave an interesting address on the "Religions of Turkey" at the Methodist church in Chelsea Sunday, the 11th. Henry Merrill and family of Little ton, formerly of Mcludoes Falls, left for Spokan Falls, Washington Territo ry, on Tuesday of last week. Rev. J. A. Boissonnanlt assisted in the celebration of high mass at the fu neral of the lato Rev. George N. Cas sey at St. Albans last week Wednesday. Mrs. George D. Randall has rented her house until spring and will spend the winter iu Boston with her daugh ter who is in Partridge's fancy goods store. Mrs. Jane Huntley of Winchester, Mass., formerly of St. Johnsbury, fell and broke one of her arms a few weeks ago from which she is slowly re covering. Howard Parker is breaking up house keeping and will go to Portland to vis it family friends for a season. On his return he will board at 0. Chase's on Main street. Dr. C. D. Newell left for Seattle, Washington Territory, Friday, where he purposes establishing himself in his profession. His family remain in St. Johnsbury for the winter. II. C. Ide, Esq., was present at the reunion of the senate of 1882 at Mout pelier Friday evening. At the close of the usual mock session the senators bauqneted at the Pavilion. Rev. Benjamin Merrill of Swanzey, N. II., whose death occurred recently, was a brother of Rev. Charles II. Mer rill of this place. He was settled over the Congregational church at Swanzey at the time of his death. W. S. Streeter has resigned his po sition as cashier of the Merchants Na tional bank in this place, to take effect Dec. 1, to accept the position of vice president in the Northwestern Gua r anty Loan Company of Minneapolis. Mr. Streeter removes to Minneapolis before the beginning of the new year. Mrs. Streeter will probably spend the winter with her father, W. W. Wright, n Boston, going West later on. In the removal of Mr, Streeter and family St. Johnsbury loses a good citizen and a family that can ill be spared. While many friends in this community sin cerely regret their departure, they send with their best wishes hearty congrat ulations to the St. Johnsbury colony in Minneapolis that will bo thus happily reinforced. Used to the Business. The candles used in illuminating the residence of Dea. L. G. Spencer on Summer street Thursday evening were used to the business, inasmuch as they were the same candles, or what was left of tho candles, used in illumina ting Dea. Spencer's house at the time of Lee's surrender over 20 years .ago. This accounts for the remarkably bril liant .appearance of Summer street dur ing the celebration. Concerning Snow Rollers. These quite frequent snow squalls thus early in the season bring to mind the vote of tho town at the annual March meeting instructing the select men to look into and consider the matter of snow-rollers. The select men have done some corresponding iu relation to tho matter and will proba bly give the rollers a trial this winter. It is also understood that the village trustees will try the experiment of snow-roller paths in this village. It is to be hoped that the business will not be postponed too long. If snow rollers are to be given a fair trial thev should be ready for use with the first storm. A Message from up Salt River. Postmaster Bowman with an eye to the future wrote to County Clerk A F. Nichols the other day enquiring about the travelling facilities up Salt River, receiving in reply a free pass to that station aud the following letter of instructions : Any special favor shown the bearer, N. P. Bowman, ex-democratic post master of St. Johnsbury, will be deem ed a favor to A. F. Nichols, division superintendent starting train; All conductors will please treat bearer kindly. No credit recommended on our account, as we shall not be in the vicinity to make payments for at least 20 years. Mugwumps will be entitled to seats on cow-catcher only. Natural democrats by birth will be provided with sleepers. Conductors will bear in mind that the bandana is a signal of distress. Conductors will stop train only at sight of some signal to take on passengers and for wood. No water will be required to run the train. Hiram Atkius is porter ou this spec ial up Salt River. Increasing Business. Jason Barrett has sold his interest in the bobbin factory at Summerville to W. E. Barrett and Theophilus Ricka by, and this business is now in the hands of F. E. Dexter, and Messrs Bar rett and Rickaby. It is proposed to push the business for the uext six months, making 10,000 bobbins a day. If at the end of this time the outlook is good the new firm wilt put in new ma chinery and double its capacity. EIGHT YEARS IN PRISON. Thomas Ward lleeeivea Sentence. A Review of the Case. Thomas Ward of St. Johnsbury was on Friday sentenced to a term of eight years at hard labor in Windsor state prison for arson. The sentence was delivered by Chief Justice Iloyce, all the judges concurring, though it is said that some of them thought the sentence should have been for a long er time. When asked if he had any thing to say why sentence should not be passed Mr. Ward .answered in the negative, and heard the announcement with no outward signs of feeling, save that he paled a little under it. He was taken at once to Windsor where he is now working out his sentence. Mr. Ward is G3 years old and will consequently be 71 should he live un til tlie expiration of his sentence. It has been generally expected among those who knew him and were familiar with the case, that he would disappear when tho time came for sentence to be passed aud would forfeit his bail.' Un doubtedly he has taken the wiser course. His block on Railroad street was mortgaged for $0000 to protect his bondsmen, B. G. Howe and Sias Ran dall. Iu addition to this the property is attached for 10,000 to protect Har vey Foster's suit for damages, which comes iip for trial, by the way, iu the December term of the county court. Mr. Ward has some other property, but by the time these claims were sat isfied he would hardly be in good shape to start in life again, especially as the laws of the state are such that even af ter forfeiting his bonds ho could be seized at any time, if found, brought into court and sentenced. Probably he calculates that his chances of getting sick and being pardoned out before the expiration of his sentence, as has been the case with so many others, are worth considering. It is so rarely that a man of means is brought to justice for his misdemean ors and this case has attracted so much interest and attention during the past three years, that a brief review of the facts will be of interest: Thomas Ward was arrested and had a hearing before Magistrate Johnson u February, 18SG, charged with burn- ug Harvey Foster's baru in Walden, Jan. 20, 188G. Previous to this Ward uid become enamored of one Olivia Amsdeu, an adopted daughter of Pos er's, had threatened injury to Foster n various ways, and, it was believed, fired the barn out of revenge, because Foster discouraged the girl's marrying him. It appeared iu evidence that an unsuccessful attempt was made just four weeks previous to the fire to burn this same barnr and that on that night and also on the night when the barn was destroyed, Ward took an all-night drive and could not or did not satis factorily account for his absence. riiero were other circumstances tend ing to fasten suspicion on him, that were not explained away. At the above hearing Ward was bound up under $500 bonds. At the Juue term of the county court he was indicted for arson. At tho December term he demurred to the indictment on the ground of irregularity in empan- nelling the grand jury. The demurrer was over-ruled aud the case went to the supreme court on that question in Nov. 1 887. The supreme court affirm ed the judgment of the lower court and sent the case back for trial on its mer its. At the December term of tho county court in 1887 a jury trial was held before Judge Veazey continuing for over two weeks, the longest trial iu the history of the court, resulting iu verdict of guilty, the jury being out about four hours. The case was then passed on to the supreme term in May 1888 and continued to the general term this month, when all the judges sat upon it, the decision of the lower court was affirmed and the final sen tence pronounced. The case was first brought by States Attorney Montgom ery and was conducted through from cue oeginning oy n. u. ide, who was At V V -W assisted at the trial by Lawyer Prouty of Newport. The defence was con ducted by Bates & May, who were as sisted at the trial by Judge Thompson of Irasburg and lawyers Lam son and iJiougeii. iriKen aitogetner it was one of the most interesting and closely contested cases in the history of Cale donia county court. A Birthday Party. Miss Mary Jane Gentry, daughter of Henry Gentry, celebrated her 15th birthday anniversary Tuesday. In the evening 15 of her schoolmates gathered at her home, each - girl bringing a present. Besides these she received a pretty gold watch, the presentation speech being made by Miss Clara Wheeler, the music teacher. The vis itors were served to a supper with the customary birthday cake aud all had a very merry time. Real Estate Transfers. John Beck has sold his house and lot in Fairbanks village to Conrad Beck. Horace Carpenter has sold a lot on Cliff street to J. J. Rhodes who pro poses building in the spring. 1 lie Human (J. Hawkins farm in the northwest part of the town has been sold to E. II. Gray and A. C Williams. C. A. Norton has sold his house on Mt. Pleasant street to F. A. Carter, who will occupy the premises. Price $2500. Mr. Norton goes to Georgia January 1. ST. JOHNSBURY CELEBRATES The Election of Harrison and Morton. What was intended to be a Caledo nia county celebration of the republi can victory took place here Thursday evening. Preparations had been made for one of tho most elaborate affairs of the kind ever known in this county. Word had been received that a mount ed company would come from Dan ville ; extra trains were to run in from the surrounding country and pretty nearly everybody, democrats and all, showed a disposition to help along and to make the jollification a grand suc cess. But the clerk of the weather in terfered. It rained all day and until after the festivities were over in the evening. . The program was carried out, however, aud with remarkable success considering the circumstances. - At V o'clock, the appointed hour, the torch-light procession was formed and marched down North Main street and thence to Railroad street and up East ern avenue to Main street again. The academy boys turned out iu very good numbers, there were some enthusiastic republicans iu the company, but the small boy predominated. Some of the transparancies were very good. The republican bird was there, a regular high stepper; Grover's pension vetoes were noted, while he himself was pic tured as the going and Gen. Harrison as the coming man, in another scene G rover was represented as fishing on Memorial day with a patch ou his pan taloons very like a portion of the Eng lish flag, and there were various take offs on Sackville-West, the old Roman, etc., etc. Huge bon-fires were burned ou Main street at the head of Easteru avenue, on Railroad street and else where. There was a generous display of Roman caudles, rockets, bombs, etc., and Capt. G lis wold handled with marked success the cannon that had been brought over from Morrisville and was stationed on Boy n ton hill, boom ing forth the joy of the multitude at regular intervals. The illuminations, not dependent on weather, were very fine. Nearly every business house and store in town, as well as the public buildings and resi dences were ablaze with light. Fes toons oi (Jniuese lanterns were sus pended in front of the buildings and pictures of the successful caudidates, transparancies and mottoes were every where to be seen. A noticeable fea ture of these decorations was the fact that some of the best displays were made by democrats, who took their defeat with great good nature, aud showed a determination to make the affair a success whether it celebrated defeat or victory. After the out door show was over a fair number for so bad a night gather ed in Music hall, where the St. Johns bury band gave a fine concert under tho direction of its efficient leader, W. II. Ilerrick, and then Judge Smith called to order, delivered a short but pithy and tiniel3? address and intro duced Congressman Grout, who con sidered some of the live questions growing out of the republican victory, the events that had led up to it, the responsibilities that it thrust upon the party and the duty of all republicans to the party and to the country. That there would be a republican majority in the House he was confident ; it would be a barren victory without that. Captain II. C. Parsons of Natural Bridge, Virginia, was the next speaker. Though the hour was lato those were well rewarded who remained to hear an intelligent and exceedingly inter esting account of many of the phases of Virginia and West Virginia politics, from one who has spent years in the work of solving tho Southern problem from a Southern standpoint. Captain Parson's idea is that the next alliance which is to control the politics of the future and the destiny of the nation in the South is between the Union and the Confederate soldiers, who are there, he maintains, joining hands in the furtherance of such principles as will tend not to build up the fortunes of a class, but the fortunes of the state and common people. His address was most encouraging, especially for the republicans who have been seeking, praying and working to break up the solid South. During the evening capital songs were rendered by the Glee club who were responding to a vociferous encore at II p. m. when the scribe retired. Sixty-four of tho lo3'al citizens of the place, including both sexes, met at the St. Johnsbury house for a social inter view, and at half-past seven Bat down to a royal supper furnished for the oc casion by Landlord Krogman. The menu was unique as well as appetiz ing, including all the substantial from oysters on the "deep" shell to free trade turkey with English sauce, a la Sackville-West. The broken-South down mutton was relishing, and the successful -canvass back duck number one. Those who voted early and often amused themselves while waiting for further "returns" by sampling the Harrison pudding with Prohibition sauce, election and Morton cake and Rome Hoosier pie. The supper was in every way an excellent one and well sei ved. Rev. Uriah Mavnaid of Rutland, who has been in the Congregational ruin istry for G5 years, celebrated his IMltl birthday Saturday. He preaches oc casionally now and is one of the most remarkable and well-preserved clergy men in the state. He was a graduate of Middlebury college in 18I1J and of Auuover theological seminary in l, ELECTRIC LIGHTS. Report or Progress. Location of the Lights. The Thomson-Houston folks are right on hand with their men and ma terials, making ready for the introduc tion of the new system of lights. The documents sent up from the home of fice were not fully satisfactory to the board of village trustees and have not been signed, so the business is uot fully completed, but no doubt is expressed as to the final and satisfactory conclu sion of the whole matter as soon as the home oflice can be reached. The Thomson-Houston company is repre sented by J. M. Filmore, who is pushing ahead all arrangements for the location of the poles, stringing of the wires, etc. Thirty-seven arc and five incandes cent lights will be put in instead of the 33 contracted for, the company be lieving that the village cannot bo well ighted short of that number, and "throwing in" at their own expense the extra four arc and the incandescent ights for the first year, to show their idea of how the village should be ighted. Next year the old contract holds for only 20 arc lights for the $1300 appropriated and $70 for each additional light as was stated last week. The village trustees have located the lights as nearly as is practicable. When the actual work of putting up the poles begins, the foliage, etc., in liferent localities may necessitate some changes. In some instances the amps will be suspended over the streets instead of being put upon poles. Following are the locations of the arc ights as at present fixed : Railroad street: At the south end near the house owned by D. K. Wako field ; at tho junction of Eastern ave nue on the Railroad Park corner ; head of Portland street ; near J. Cloutier's; corner of Mill street ; at the west end of Paddock village bridge. Pearl Btreet : At the corner of Cross street; near Dr. Calderwood's ; ou the corner of Maple street. Eastern avenue on the corner of Cherry street. Main street: At the fiead of Arnold park; near John Balch's; at the head of Maple; at the Music hall corner; near St. Johnsbury house; Head ot Eastern avenue; near South church ; at the head oi western avenue. Summer street: Corner of Mt. Pleas ant, Winter, Webster, Church anil Central streets aud near Asa Living ston's. Spring street, corner of Webster. Cliff street: At the corner of Mt. Pleasant; foot of Winter; corner of Central streets. Western avenue: Besides the lamp at the head of this avenue noted above under Main street, there will be one opposite the lower driveway ot the Gov. Fairbanks' place; at the junction of Summer street and the avenue; at the foot of Cliff street near the Fairbanks office. South park at the corner of Park aud South streets. Fairbanks village near the boarding house; south of the railroad trestle. Paddock village: At the park near watering trough; on Pleasant street near school ; corner 1'ieasanc aim Emerson streets. Five incandescent lights will be lo cated as follows: One on Prospect street near Mrs. A. E. Rankin's, one on North Main street near W. S. Boyn ton's and one each on Charles and Bel- videre streets and Clark avenue. Mr. Filmore is established at the Avenue house where ho will be glad to meet any business men who may de sire information concerning the intro duction of the electric light into stores, offices, etc. Horse Breeders' Meeting. There was a good attendance and good interest at the Eastern Vermont Horse Breeders' meeting at Newport on Tuesday when these officers were elected : President. W. S. Bailey of East Hardwick. Vice president. F. C. Williams of Coventry. Secretary, E. H. Hoffman of Lyndon. Treasurer, 0. II. Mossmauof Barton. Executive committee, the above of ficers and Georee II. Fitzeerald of Island Pond, E. A. Parks and A. S Livingston of St. Johnsbury, J. I. Park er of Coveutrv. J. A. Knowlton of Newport, Julius Brighaiu of West Concord. I. H. Hall of Lyndon, Ora Drew of Danville, S. C. Kimball of Al bany, Mitchell Hunt of North Troy, G. II. Tice of West Holland. It was voted to extend the limits of the society by including Lamoille and Orange counties iu Vermont, Coos county in N. II., and Stanstead county in P. Q., provided such counties should desire to uuite. The place of the next meetine: was left with the executive committee. The Express says that the. society would locate at Newport for a term of five or ten years provided grounds could bo fitted up for them Would it not be worth while for St. Johnsbury to offer some inducements for the permanent location of the so ciety here! To be sure they had hard luck this fall, but the people would certainly see to it that they were bet ter supported another time. Supreme Court Decisions. At the general term of tho supreme court, which closed on Friday at Montpelier, these Caledonia county cases were disposed of, besides the Ward case noted elsewhere : The cases of Broii8on vs. Sulloway, Buzzell vs Cuniininua. Silsby vs. Carnenter, and Whitney "Wagon Works vs. Moore were left with tho court. In Blair vs. White and Worthen. the decree for orator was affirmed. In Judkins vs Brock, the judgment for plaintiff affirmed. Moore vs. Haviland, judg ment for defendant affirmed. In Wil lard vs. St. Johnsbury & Lake Cham nlali) Railroad Company, ludsment o county court reversed and iudgmen for plaintiff for $125. MISS MARY HOWE'S FAREWELL CONCERT. On Tuesday evening the people of Brattleboro gave Miss Mary Howe a most cordial and enthusiastic greeting at her last public appearance before sailing for Europe. Every Beat in the large hall was sold and some were dis appointed in being unable to obtain a it place. Miss Howe was assisted by ier brother, Lucien Howe, accompa nist and composer; Mrs. E. R. Pratt, contralto, the friend and playmate of ier girlhood days; Myron W. Whit ney, the great basso, and the Beethov- eu orchestra of Boston. Tlie program was a varied one, but had no cheap or trashy numbers. Miss Howe's first and every appearauce during tho evening was greeted with tho heartiest ap plause, aud she shared with Mrs. Pratt most elegant floral tributes. Miss lowe's appearance on tho stage was artless and natural, as might be ex pected of tho sensible girl she is. If any one present was under the impres sion that she excelled as a singer only n vocal gymnastics and brilliant lire- works, that impression was thorough- y dispelled when she rendered the iiich-Gounod arrangeinont of "Ave Maria" with an appreciation and pa thos that thrilled the audience like an electric shock. By the arrangement of tho progiam Miss Howe sang the last number. Iu espouse to an encore which admitted of no refusal, she re-appeared before the footlights, and when the accompa nist struck into "Sweet Home," the iiudienco burst into enthusiastic ap plause. This exceedingly warm rec ognition and appreciation by an audi euce of her townspeople was almost too much for the singer's nerve, and it was with evident effort she controlled ier voice and began "'Mid pleasures mil palaces." Before the first verse was finished her eye caught sight of ier weeping mother and 6ister iu the audience and her emotions overcoming ier she burst into tears and covering her face with her hands left the stage. The audience quietly withdrew from the hall aud will have this final dra matic scene to remember while the chief actor is across the sea adding to ier accomplish men ta and well-earned fame. riie other artists in this excellent concert deserve especial mention, but there is no space for further comment at this late hour. One thing that im pressed me was the warm appreciation ... . . . t i f : in whicii the enure town neiu miss Howe and Mrs. Pratt, who, by the wav. accomnanies the the Howes to r a. Paris next week. c m. s. RECENT DEATHS. Patterson. Fred Patterson, for six years employed iu Fairbanks store and previous to that employed for a time at the Scale works, died at the home of his parents at South Albany on Fri lay after a month's illness of typhoid fever, age 27. Mr. Patterson's busi ness was such that it brought him into relation with many people of the place, and his circle of acquaintances and frieuds was very large. When taken sick and on leaving the store for his old home he expressed his belief that he would not recover and such proved to be the case. His father and mother as well as a sister are living. Funeral services were held at South Albany Monday. A number of elegant floral tributes were sent from St. Johnsbury, from the Masonic bodies of which he was a member, from Hose Company No. 4 to which he also belonged, from the employees in the store, George W Spencer's family, Col. Fairbanks and others. Academy Notes. R. N. C. Barnes has returned to school after a brief absence on account of sickness. The following have been appointed a committee of arrange ments for the senior exhibition: Good rich, Merrill, Misses Ely, Bugbee and Baxter. The Thanksgiving recess will begin this year Tuesday evening and continue uutil the following Monday morn inc. After this year the recess will be limited to Thanksgiving day c? CJreensboro and Caledonia County. The general committees of the sen ate aud house held a joint hearing last week on the bill to set oil' the town o Greensboro from Orleans to Caledonia rounty. The Mont pclier Journal gives this itMi t of the discussion : Tlw bill was favored by Hiram A. Hus, Esq., of Mont pel ier and opposed by Litwycr Young of Newport. Wit nesses wore present who testified in re gard to (he condition of the roads lead ing to Newport and St. Johusbury, the county seats of the two counties, the sunomit of business done by the people f Greensboro at St. Johusbury aud Newport and the wishes of the citizens in regard to the matter. The support ers of the measure claim that the road to Newport is difficult to travel, that St. Johnsbury is much more easy of ac cess by railroad, that the majority of the business of Greensboro is done at the latter place and that the town -would be better con ven ienced by hav ing this place as its county seat rather than Newport. The opponents of the measure slate that the road to St. Johnsbury may be a little shorter than to Newport, but that it is hilly aud (bitted in winter, and that for all busi ness in the courts Greensboro is far lietter accommodated in Orleans than would be possible in Caledonia county. A etilioii praying for the passage of the bill has been placed in the hands of the committee signed by one hun dred eighty-eight voters of the town, also a remonstrance signed by seventy voters.
