Tho legislature has adjourned and gone
home, and let us bo thankful for tho good
it has done, and tho evil it has not done.
Wo will review its courso moro fully when

As to who is president elect, we know not ;
it now looks as though Hayes would bo
counted in, and with fairness wo trust. Ho
is our choice of tho two men, but wo want
an honest, fair count abovo all else. And
unless Tildcn should mako a worso president
than ho has governor, tho country would
not bo iinpcrrilled.

tho new board: Ocorco S. Fassctt, Knos
burgh; Albert Chapman, Middlebury; Pe

Rutland ; Ora Paul, i'omfret ; and Henry
Chase, Lyndon. It will bo seen that Mr.
b'assctt is tho only member of tho old board,
though Prof. Collier has seen servieo and
will bo of great value to tho now board.
Shall wo have two sermons or one, is a ques
tion over which many of tho congregations of I
thisstato have or will wax warm. The Con
gregational paper of this state has taken great
pains to secure somo facts in tho case. On
an average, in no church from which it has
heard is tho audience in tho evening equal
to forty per coat, of tho morning audience-
In seven churches tho average audiences
in tho first services aro twenty-two hundred
nod fify, and in the second service fivo hun
dred. It then suggests that it might bo de
sirable to try tho experiment generally, of
ooo service on Sunday, and after an appro
priate interval tho Sunday school, with a
Uible class conducted by tho pastor.
When we bear iu mind that tho vencra
bio and cautious Dr. Lord reaches theso con

and much less practical wisdom may well
consider his proposition.
The recent Kpiscopal congress in Uoston
has attracted moro than usual attention, and
this not wholly in view of the talent, or cul
turo or position of tho men, for other relig
ious bodies havo theso and attract less atten
tion. The thing which, abovo all others, has
turned tho public cyo on this gathering has
been the topics discussed and their method
of treatmcut. Amoug other subjects wcro
these : "The place of Art in Christianity,"
"Tho Morals of Politics," on which cx-Oov.
llullock, of Worcester spoke with great clear
ncs3 and force, "Tho Homcdy for Intemper
ance," and kindred topics. This bhows that
these men havo clear conceptions of the vital
needs and issues ol the world as it is. This
exhibition of sound, solid common senso in
matters of Christian cntcrpriso not only
pleases but wins tho public, lhe world is
aching for this practical philanthropy; this
grappling with tho real problems oi'tocial
and political life. While partisans aro
seeking for succsa by tho low arts of tho pol
iticians, these men with a noblo zeal are en
dcavoring by a purpose and wisdom inspired
of Christian knowlcdgo to solvo some of the
most difficult problems which tax our modern
philanthropy and statesmanship. JJishop
Whipplo has shown by his masterly treat
ment of tho Indian question, in contrast with
tho imbecility and corruption of congressional
methods, that tho problem can bo solved
when properly attempted. All tbeso things
aro signs that tho old rcgimo of plunder and
corruption and hollow diplomacy is passing
away, and an era of purity, uprightness and
manhood is dawning.
Tho long and short of it is, that Mr. Sollaco
had no business on tho list ol electoral
candidates. And wo aro credibly informed
by good republicans that ho (oared as much
himself and cxprccscd his feelings to somo
"omincnt politicians" who assurod him that
it would mako no difference. Thoy wcro
eminent politicians doubtless but thoy wcro
not eminent for their knowlcdgo of tho Uni
ted States constitution, for their patriotism,
their good sense, nor for their political sagac
ity and morality. Ho was wholly ineligible,
and when for party purposes tho plain organ
io law or tho constitution is violated, tho
confusion and quibbling which follows is only
what might bo exnectod. Thcro is an old
moral law which says something about sow
ing tho wind if we so elect, but tho harvest
garnered must of necessity be of tho whirl

Wo notice with plcasuro tho growing
habit on tho part of ministers (and churches
to havo union Thanksgiving services. It is
as it should bo in itself, and cry happy iu

"Let all tho people praiso theo, 0 God,"
and why not all of us get together oneo in
year to piaiso tho ono Lord of us all, the
ono source of all our fuvors, the ono Cod
who smiles upon tho fields that fill our
garners, whoso provideoco guards our
lives, and abundant grace provides roJcmp-
tion for us from all our sins ; why not, wo
say, all, once a year, in one place, with one
accord, ns citizens of ono common country
having all aliko the b'ct good of our coun
try at heart, praiso (jod together? The
Adventist could pass over in silence his
peculiar views us to the prc-millcnnial rcigu
of the Messiah, aud rejoice iu tho advent of
a new era of national lifo ; tho Jiaptist
would plunge heart and soul into tho needs
of the timo for tho old Roger Williams' de
votion to tho cause of liberty ; tho Congrc
gationalist, forgetting tho Say brook and
ecclesiastical platforms, would demand ono
broad enough and truo enough for all pat
riots to stand upon, a standing order worthy
of (Jod and man ; the Episcopalian, though
cherishing his faith in tho apostolic succcs
sion, could urge the need of a succession of
good men, like Washington aud Jay and
Morris and Hamilton ; tho Methodist, while
bating for tho moment his noble enthusiasm
for tho memory of tho Wesleys and a long
ino of honored worthies, might plead for
methods of honesty, sobriety and godliness
Tho Homauist, venerating tho successor
Saint Peter none the less, would bo catho
lie enough to cmbiace us all in one common
brotherhood for whoso weal he might pray
the Univcrsalist, while proclaiming salvation
for all, would at least admit that some ain
ncrs of our times deserve a " fearful looking

zeus of one town meet in the town hall,

ing, but of praiso and thanksgiving to th
Giver of every good and perfect gift. Such

fession on tho part of tho mass of tho peo
ple that they aro dhsatitficd with the present
tato ol tho civil administration ol the coun
try. Thcro Is no reason whatever to think
that thoy havo gono over from a general
adherenco to republican policy to a general
acccptanco of tho democratic. But a very
argo number ot republicans must cither
lavo remained neutral or havo votod against
their party from a conviction that a great
reform iu tho administration was ncc-icu,
coupled, probably, with some confidence in
Mr. Tildeo's power to ciiect it. utnaon
Slapb's Oiiu.3. Some of our readers will
remember tho enterprise of ex-Governor
Sladc, of Veruiout, somo thirty years since,
of sending female teachers to the West.
Hundreds and hundreds of young womcu of
culture Irom tho best Christian families of
New York and New Knglond went. They
will also remember tho ardent support Gov
ernor Slado secured from such men as Rev.
Drs. Elisha Tucker, Oeorgo B. Ide, and
Others. But 'Blade's girls,' as they were
called, could not resist the blandishments of
tho young farmers of the West. Ihcy would
get married. Thoy begun by teaching other
peoples children, and ended by teaching
their own. Northern Illinois, Wisconsin
and Iowa wcro especially benefited by this
immigration ol teachers who becamo wives.
Rev. Dr. Ide used lo tell with gusto a story
ol tho war. He had a rclativo on General
McPhcrson's staff. As the army of the
Tcnccssce was lighting its way from Chatta
nooga to Atlanta, on a certain day Mcl'hcr-
son was very hard pressed, tno lighting
unusually severe. His lino wavered at
imcs, but on tho extreme right he noticed
tho extraordinary fighting qualities of a reg-
mcnt that never wavered, but held its posi
tion with indomitable pluck until reinforced,
and thus saved tho day. At uight this rel
ative of Dr. ides was sent over to that
ironsides' regiment with general's thanks,
aud to make special inquiries us to who they
were, lie found it wus un Iowa regiment,
all young men, and but a short time in the
service ; aud alterwarus addressing ur. lue
said, 'They wcro most of them Sladcs' girls'
boys , N. x . bxamtner.
Rkspkct ion Law. Tho final test of our
principle is tespect for tho lorms of law. If
a great party acquiesces in results which nro
declared in perfect accord with thoso forms,
even although it believes them to bo lalsc,
it is plain that respect for law is stronger
than party spirit, und that our republic will
not bo wrecked upon tho rock which has
destroyed its predecessors. Such acquies
cence shows a just contidcncc that the pco
plo will, under tho same forms and at the
polls, punish thoso who shall have committed
so monstrous a wrong. It shows, further, a
consciousness that it is incalculably better to
ubmit for the tuna and seek the sure remedy
by otderly and lawful methodslhau to invoke
the awful nnd doubtful arbitrament of war.
If, for instance, llio result of the lato election
should depend upon the vote of Louisiana,
and, under rupublican auspices, that voto
should bo declared fur Mr. Hayes, but with
a strong general conviction lhat tho return
wus IrauJiilent, the country would acqui
esce, but the republican party would have
been destroyed. On the oilier bund, if the
count should be declared for Mr. lildcn,
democratic terror in certain pari-hes, again
the country would acquiesce, but the con
sciousness that he owed his seat to force
nnd not to honest voting would unite the
wholo "North" ngainst this parly ami rout
it at the next election. Alter tho Hurry of
tho first day of doubt, this has been the
general tone ol tho gicat body of tho press
of both parlies, aud the press eaiinot servo
the country and the principles wiueii aro
most precious to nil of us moro surely than
by steady persistence iu this tone. Ilarcr's

For many years I havo known Dr. A. J. Flagg ns n
succcsfut practicing phtician, and can ussuro tho
public that his representations relative to tho Cough
nnd LunMyrup can bo Ftrletty relied upon. It has
been used In his extended practice with marvelous suc
cess, and 1 knew it to be nil that ho claims for It.
