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 of articles from Presidents Uuckham and llul burt of tho colleges in Burlington aud Mid dlebury on the Illslier Education Demanded by tho times for tho sons and daughters of Vermont. Prof. Peter Collier of the University, and one of tho comtnls sioncrs to the Vienna Exposition, will fur nish articles on Artlnclal Fertilizers. While Prof. II. M. Secley of Middlcbury col lego and late secrotary of the board of agri culture will prepare some on Knturnl History, With special reference to our own state ; whilo Prof. A. E. Leavenworth of tho state school at Randolph 'is to write of Normal Schnol Instruction. And Prof. H. T. Fuller, tho well-known and successful principal of -tho St. Johnsbury academy, will write of Academies and their Work. And we are also very happy to inform our readers that wo shall havo Hon. 0 Horace Hubbard of Springfield, late ajricul tural editor of tho Farmer, as an assistant adviser and general contributor on Agricultural Matters Generally ; that Col. John B. M ead, so ex tensively known and universally esteemed , by the people of Vermont, will givo instruc tion about Farm Uulldlngl. Cyrus 0. Pringle of Charlotte, tho original or of the Snowflakc, Alpha, lluby and other choice varieties of potatoes, with u national reputation as a botanist, and so well known on the board of agriculture, will write of llotnny uiul Horticulture. L. M. Macomber of North Ferrisburgh, ono of tho most experienced and successful nurs erymen in New England, will treat of tho (liiltiiru 11 ml euro f Fruit Truca. Tho Hon. Buol Landon, stato senator from South Hero, has kindly consented to write on Horticulture, While J. T. Macomber, of Grand Isle, for tho special interest and profit of ladies and mechanics, will write on Gardening, And a gentleman whose name wo arc not at liberty to publish, will contributo a short series, in due time, on Farmer's Flower Gardent. For tho benefit of thoso who aro interested in tho matter, J. E. Crane, of Bridport, an authority in his department, will furnish in formation as to lice Culture. At present, wo can only stato that Gen. Geo F. Davis, of Cavendish, will writo on the merits of Jertey Coivs, But wo shall sccuro articles from those who keep Ayrshire1, Holstcins, Short Horns, and various other breeds, and hopo for something from Hon. Harris Lewis, of tho New York stato agricultural society, on Ilreed of Cattle. Hon. F. D. Douglass, of Whiting, Hon. E I). Mason, of ltichmond, and others, will treat of Dairy Matter! Whilo Hon.

To meet our augmented c , i .i, n. r..i s r ' - wo invito tho hearty co-operation of all its friends to add largely to its steadily increas ing circulation, Wo wonder if our readers know thoro it to bo an excellent poultry show in Wood stock next week Wednesday. From the list of exhibits before us we-aro frank to say il will be tho best ever held in Vermont and worthy of all interested in this growlngly important industry. Served him Hiqiit. Tho fellow who wrote to Miss Ward of Milton last summer that ho would tako her life unless sho sent him $1500, has just been sentenced to fiyo years' imprisonment in Bcnnamora prison, Ho has been in our prison at Windsor some six or eight years for theft. In order to meet our subscribers moro than half way, and to civo tho farmers of Vermont, not only tho best paper, but at tho very lowest prico, wo havo reduced our clutblng torms, for ten subscribers or over, to $1.50 each, and will givo nnd extra copy to thoso who get a club of twenty. A no- tico at the head of this pago oxplains more fully. Let us have the. clubs, and we prom iso you the best paper in tho state, or the 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 lican party is committed to civil scrvico ro form, and Mr. Uoutwell is thoroughly op posed to its practico at least ; ho appointed trnoim, rlorlr- rinilur, l,n nfminil a ..atari suspicions.

Third, givo up a few hours somotimo to visit, if you can, tho farm of Hon. W. M. Kvarti just north of tho village. Look at his barns, stock, etc. ; learn from his farmer what you can of his methods of wintor caro of the stockf what feed he usos and how ; his method of cultivation. An' hour or two spent in this way would amply repay you for tho journoy to that quiet old town. A fow weeks sinco an cx-eovernor of Ver moot, a shrowd man withal, said to us, "Sir, I was on ardent Blaino man, I wantod him, and was exceedingly disappointed that he was not nominated at Cincinnati. (Later in tho season, 1 saw that ho could not have bcn elected, and I acquiesced in tho decision of tho convention. I now sco that .tho great mistako of all was that Bristow was not nominated.

The Cabinet. In tho midst of so many fears and doubts as to tho future, wo trust it will lend assur- anco to our readers to learn that President Hayes is to havo one of tho best cabinets known for many years. Tho announcement which wo make, though not strictly "official ," may bo regarded as highly probablo and satisfactory. Boo. of Stato. W. St. Erarts, II. II. llristow, UalualtA A.

It will bo seen that this cabinet embraces every section of tho country save the cxtremo south and northwest ; oven Pennsylvania is placated, and fitly represented by a man who can be trusted with a department, mr, Evarts stands at tho head of his profession I in this country, and would lend honor and dignity to tho position. Mr. Bristow's np pointment would bo hailed with horror and dismay by every roguo, tho country over, Mr. Schurz would not only be an ablo man, but would represent, and justly too, tho rap idly increasing German clement, and bis appointment would be only a just recognition of his eminent services during tho last cam paigns, in which Gov. Hayes has been so deeply interested. In senator Booth, tho do- mandsof the Pacifio slopo would bo met, and tho position filled by an able, honest man. familiar with tho experiences and needs of frontier life If not senator Booth, then bishop Whipple, of Minnosota, who is moro capablo of dealing with the Indian question than any man in tho country, so far as known. Gov. Jewell would bo but a fitting recognition of tho great worth and raro qua) ideations of a tried and muoh abused man ; the country demands Jewell. Of Judgo Poland, it becomes us to speak with modesty. Of his fitness, thcro can bo no question; of his largo experience, tho samo must be said ; and our state is entitled to consideration, and wo know that Judge Poland would not lend tho influence of his namo and official posi tion to tho schemes which has brought disas ter and dofeat to tho party in tho South. -ye j,avo omitted Mr. Ulaino for, freighted as Hayes is with tho doubts connected with tho returns from somo states, ho cannot peril a cabinet by appointing a man who did moro than any other to bring about the dcplorablo state of things. This cabiuet meets the legitimate demands of all sections of tho country, as well as tho reform clement of tho party, which cannot bo iiinorcd ; it rccognizos, in a fitting manner, tho largo and Important Teutonic clement of our republi canism, aud it also cuts loose from Grantism, which has disgusted and turned from us so maov of tho best voters in tho party.

When Massachusetts bows her nock to tho galling yoke of Grantism and Butlcrism for tho two aro but odo then is the party, from tho Pino Tree stato to tho Golden Gate, from tho frozen haunts of tho beaver to tho tepid waters of the Gulf, smitten with death ; and all this becauso in the places onco filled with giants, Massachusetts places only pygmies.

Theso things havo been notorious and would have raised up an opposition party anywhere. Rhode Island had an extra session last WOek to fill Geo. H. Corliss' placo on tho electoral board. Tho members aroso in tho morning, did tho chores at the barn, filled tho wood-box, shaved thoir bronzed faoes, bitched up the old horso, drove into Provi dence, and having secured their teams at tho well-gnawed hitching posts in front of the stato house, went into tho cozy little hall, transacted thoir business, took out their doughnuts and chevso which they loisuroly at0 whilo standing about tho stovo that Roger Williams took along in his midnight flight from godly Massachusetts, compared notes about pork and "latere," and boof and cider, and then dtovo homo, put up tho cows, and, around their quiet kitchen fires, drop. pad into a sleep as if nothing had happened.

Carpenter, which perhaps accounts for his political ver satility! Then thcro is J. J. n. uanuaii, a olover man, with hosts of friends, followed by ono Samuel Hay ward, and last of all tho venerable John Cain who sold postago stamps to Rutland's aristooraoy under that old "pub lio functionary," James liuchanan.
