THE FARMER FOR 1877.
Wo call tho attention of ovcry reader and
patron of the Faiuirr to the announcements
made in this oolumn. Believing that the
farmers of Vermont would sustain a paper
spcoially devoted to their interests, one
which should combine all the requirements
of afirst-olass agricultural, political, literary
and family journal, we have taken great
pains to secure ior the Farmer, during the
ensuing year, the assistanco of a goodly
number of writers in the various parts of
tho stato, Our endeavor has been and we
have succeeded beyond our expectations to
get articles from men who aro specialists ;
men who havo given their timo and energy
to some odo thing and havo become not only
experts, but a recognized authority in respect
to those matters. All this will be in addition
to what we shall receive from our ordinary
correspondents. First, wo shall havo a series

United States for tho farmers of Vermont,
Wc call attention to our sDccial clubbi'na
rato with the Scientific Farmor. There aro
hundreds of farmers in Vermont who wish
to sccuro an accurato scientific knowledge of I
agriculture, such as can be secured best at
an agricultural school. To meet tho wants
of theso tho Sciontifio Farmer has been cs-
tablishcd and is mcctiug with great success.
To place it within tho reach of all our read
ers who wish for such a periodical snd wo
know they aro many, wo havo mado such
arrangements for sending it as a most effi
cient adjunct of our own paper.
With all due rcspeot to tho ability and
wisdom of tho board of electors of this state,
who met in Montpdier, Wednesday, and
voted for Gov. Hayes, wo think they mado a
mistako in filling tho vacancy by tho choice
of Mr. Sol I ace. It has tho appoarancq of
defying tho law and good sense of tho best
people of tho stato, and thcro is good au
thority for avoiding oven the appearanco of
evil. That tbey intended to disregard the
convictions of .the good citizens of Vermont
wo do not believe, but tho selection of Mr.
Sollaco was not -called for by any considcra
tion of public good, and his private feelings
or wishes were of no account.
Aro not some of our Orleans county fricads
pursuing a very foolish course in attempting
to defeat tho inevitable? Tho removal of
the county buildings to somo point on tho
railroad is as suro to come as tho seasons ;
it is one of thoso things which modern pro-
press demands, and the demand will bo en
forced. Tho fall in real estate at Irasburgh
was sure to como, it can't be averted ; and
tho old-timo prices can never bo restored
It is unpleasant for the people of that town
wo know, many things in life arc, but they
must bo borno for all that. The commission
proposed to locate tho now county buildings
wcro certainly men of ability, unpartisan, and
bound by every consideration of honor and
duty to proceed with caution and fairness,
and render a decision vrhich the peoplo of
that distracted county and entire stato would
accept as just and final.
Tho burning of a Brooklyn theatre, Tues
day night, and tho loss of somo thrco hun
dred lives, compels us to ask about our per
sonal safety. Wo havo been in halls up two
long flights of stairs whero a firo taking in
the cellar would have involved fearful loss
of life. Tho doors of our churches, halls,
etc., open in so that a frantic crowd would
be suro to perish. Kvcry larco town and
village in Vermont nas somo ot tuoso pits oi
destruction into which scores of people will
yot fall. Tho burniog alivo of thrco bun
drcd human beings in a civilized American
city is an appalling calamity, and tho mat
ter is only aggravated by tho proprietors and
builders of such buildings, all over tho land,
standing by thoso charred corpses and saying
with a sardonio smilo to their heart-stricken
friends, "What aro you going to do about
it 7" Tho proprietors of every such hall
know that after a littlo tbo matter will blow
over till another such holacaust calls atten
tion to tho matter.
It is said that Congressman Pierce, of
Uoston, is willing to succeed Mr. Uoutwell,
tho United States senator, and surely tho
peoplo of Massachusetts should be willing to
havo him. Mr. Doutwell is almost wholly
wanting in thoso qualities which mako a
statesman of tho present timo. Tho rcpub

Tho largo increase of democratic voto in

tho disrcputablo republican carpet-baggers

which perhaps accounts for his political ver

by ono Samuel Hay ward, and last of all tho
