rection in the future, aided I trust, by my
four years' experience iu the office' when
my first term of the office of Chief Execu

, from the effects of a great internal revolu
tion, and three of the former States of the
Union, had not been restored to their Fed-1
eral relations. -
: It seemed to me Wise that no questions
should be raised, so long as that condition
of affairs existed : therefore the past four

have been consumed in the effort to restore
harmony, public credit, commerce and all
the arts of 'peace and progress. It is my
firm conviction that the civilized world is
tending towards Republicanism, or govern
ment iy the people through their chosen
representatives, and that our great Repub
lic is .destined to be the guiding star of all
others. . , .
, Under our ReDublic wu annnnrt an armv

any standing, and a navy less than that of
either at least five of tuein There could be
no extention of country on - this continent
which could call for an increase of this
force, bat rather might such extension en
able us to diminish it. . : :
The theory of government changes with
, general progress.. Now that the telegraph
is made available for communicating
thought, together with . rapid transit. by
steam, all parts of the continent are made
contiguous for the. purposes of government
and communication between the -extreme
limits of the country made easier than it
was through the old thirteen Suites- at the
beginning of ottr Batlonal existence'.. ;
The effects of our late civil strife have
been to free the' stare and make him a citi
zen, yet be ia not possessed j of the civil
. ribts which .cithsenabip should carry with
; it. This is WEpng and should be corrected.
To this correction I stand commitUd, so
far as executive influence can avail..!: So

In the first year -of the present Admin ia
tratlon the question came up for the admis

Union. It was not a question of my seek

ject was never again bronirlit nn bv me.
In future, while 1 hold my present office,
the subject of acquisition of tcrritorv must
have the support of the .'people before I
will recommend any proposition looking to
such acquisition. I say here; however that

if possible to par with it; to the construc

the land, to the end that the products of all
sections may find a market, and leave a

the maintenance of friendly relations with

to bring the aboriginees of the country un

engaged in by people pursuing commerce

Boston, March 7.
Louis Wagner, suspected of the double
murder at the Isle ot Shoals, was arrested
iu Fleet street, Boston, last night, and com
mitted to await the requisition of the ao
Jbontiet of Maine, within whose jurisdic
tion the murders were committed; Wag
ner layabout thirty years old and weighs
oue hundred and seventy pounds. Be
claims to be a Prussian by birth. W hen
charged with the murder be steadily denied
having any knowledge of it. On his per
son was found a small sum of money, but
a watch was soon found where be had dis
posed of it, and his old cloths,spolted with
blood, were discovered in a shop where he
had procured - a new outfit. The murder,
wl.icli was most brutal in its details, was
dweovered at an early hour on Thursday
morning, by members of the Huntress fam
ily, at whose residence the outrage was
committed. Wagner, a former employee
of Mr, Huntress, arrived in his boat
from Star Island at an early hour on the
evening of the murder. Bis mission, to
all appearances, was the perpetration of
the crime he subsequently committed, his
sneaking manner on aniving at the house,
being such as to give rise to suspicion of
Mrs. Huntress that he was intent on some
object which boded no. good. He passed
the front of the house to the Tear and then
entered the bouse. After a short conversa
tion he asked Cornelia Christentott to Come
into the entry with him as he bad some
thing very important to communicate to
her. The woman, who suspected aome
tbing wrong, Involuntarily started to acqui
esce in WasnerV request. Tremblinc
with fear she approached the entry where
on arriving she found wagner with an axe
in his hand. With a shriek she started to
return to the kitchen where the had left
Mrs.' Huntress and another ' woman
named Annetta Lawson,' bat before she
reached 'the 3oor she received the furious
blow on the bead from Wagner with the
axe. '' The blow . was sufficient to kill her
inataatly. The murderer with the axe in
bis band entered the room where the others
were, and without a word struck the Law
son woman on the aide. The woman fell
to the floor, ber agony being such as to oc
aaiou loud cries of distress. She was ask
ed by Wagner where, tie money was that
was kept' In the bouse, being' at the same
time warned that 'if she would .'not tell blm
be would kill her on the spot. . She contin
ued to groan, seeming to pay little attention
to What tbe brats was saying. 1 All at once
Wagner seemed possessed of the spirit of a
demontand dealt blows with the axe thick
and , fasl .upon the head and body of the
unfortunate woman. ,' Mrs. Lawsoa's head
was literally crushed to a jelly. Meantime

from the murderer with a chair, was bidden

This is the physical illustration of tbe
moral truth a truth that quotes itself to
re oftener than any other text In the Bible
that "a man's foes shall be of his own
household." This truth has a thousand ap
phcations. It applies literally to the do
mestic household. Where do most men
find their greatest help or their greatest
hindrance to success in their business?. At
home ! frugality there commonly means
prosperity. Extravagance there commonly
means vexation, temptation to business
gambling, and to eventual ruin. Half tbe
married men who practice swindling are
pUBhed on to it by an unprincipled mistress
or an extravagant wife and family. A
man's wife is either bis best friend or bis
worst enemy. ? .
Where lies the sorest sorrow that dis
turbs the heart-peace and spoils the luster
of : worldly gains or promotions ? It is in
tbe worm at the root of home-life." It is
nothing to a man to be prosperous in his
store, or bis office or even in- bis pulpit, if
he is wretched at his own hearthstone.
Nor does the neglect or social injustice of
a whole neighborhood cut fio deeply as the
treachery, and neglect of those nearest and
dearest to us. A wife can bear to be Ig
nored by all her neighbors if her husband
is only loying and ber children affectionate
and obedient But a husband's nnkindness
is a dry sorrow that drinks her very heart'i
blood. Our severest wounds are often in
flicted by the hands which ought to clasp
our own most closely. ; , ; . ,
If the father chiefly talks money, money
at borne, he generally rears a family in the
worship of . the almighty, dollar. If he
talks mainly horses, games, and races, he
breeds a.batch ot sportsmen. If fashion is
the family altar, then the children are offer
ed up on that altar. If a man makes his
own fireside attractive he may reasonably
hope to anchor his children around it . My
neighbor Q makes himself the constant
evening companion of his boys. The re
sult is that his boys are never found in bad
places. But if a father hears the clock
strike eleven in his club house or the play
house, he need not be surprised if his boys
bear it strike twelve in the gambling-house
or drinking saloon. If be puts the bottle
on bis own table he need not wonder if
drunken son staggers in by-and-by at his
front door. ' When tbe best friend that
childhood and youth ought to have becomes
their foe, the home becomes the starting-
post for moral ruin. The only enemies
that we ever need to be afraid of are with
in ourselves. " "'
Did you ever know a good man or a pure
woman utterly ruined by outside attacks
upon their reputation? J never did. The
abuse of a good man is commonly the bead
wind that fans the fires of his own furnace
and gives him the greater headway. -No
true man was ever put down and kept
down while he waa true to conscience and
to God, When character is destroyed it is
never murder : it is suicide. Kind reader,
the only person in the universe that can put
you down ia tbe one that lives within your
own heart-bouse. Watch your own heart
door. When you are tempted, imagine
that you hear Satan trying tbe latch. Ent

Mr. JarUift Warn Work at LakehiUe.
Academy Hali in Lakeville last . Wed
nesday evening was crammed to over
flowing to witness the wonderful exhi
bition of wax works by Petronius Jar'
ley, "the sole surviving relict of the
world-renowned Mrs. Jarley, deceased.
To say that this "pahow" was one of
the most mirth-provokine that was
ever exhibited in this region, only tells
tamely the story.
To give an account of the exhibition
commensurate with its merit We cannot
attempt at this late season in the week
but will say that ail acted well their
parts. Borneo and Juliet, The Gene
va Award, as well as many of the other
pieces were particularly rich, but of a.
the representations of "wax worx , none
were more true to life and absolutely
stunning,.- than Mr. Tom Norton in his
representation of Mr. Jarley. A friend
who sits near says that not one in ten
thousand could act that part so well
Tonf is a "miracle. The orchestra
gave good music for such an entertain
ment,, and altogether the exhibition was
very pleasing and satisfactory, to say
the least, and that it was given entirely
by local talent, rendered it none the
leas interesting. We were pleased to
see so many of our Cornwall friends on
this occasion, as well as many: from
other villages. ; ' ; r
Reminuoencet of Fall VUlage. "Our
fathers, where art they, and the prophets.
do they live forever ?" How few in this
vicinity remember even the names of some
of tbe old inhabitants. Tbe Wright family
for instance : Deacon Wright, came from
Wethersfield at an early day, and settled
one mile north of this village. His only
son, Elizur, graduated at Yale College.
He waa a thoughtful, taciturn, studious
man, and one of the pioneers of tbe silk
business in this state. About the yar 1795
he put out on his farm a large number of
mulberry trees, and I well remember
when a child, looking on with curious
eyes tbe cocoons. About the year 1812,
Deacon Wright 2d started with four large
covered wagons, drawn by oxen, for Ohio.
In four weeks tbey reached the town of
Talmadge, on the Western Reserve. Here
he established himself. In the year 1827
the writer saw where Deacon Wright had
mined a few tons of coal, discovered by
himself on bis own land. This was one of
tbe first if not the first discovery of mineral
coal In Northern Ohio, and this particular
bed has since developed to immense pro
portions. The present Elizur Wright, Ac
tuary of Boston, a son of Elizur Wright
was in childhood noted for adherence to
his own opinion, or as might be termed, a
kind of never-let-go determination, proba
bly fostered in infancy by watching the
patient, persistent silk worm in his fa
ther's cocoonery, slowly envelope itself.
Increasing years have no doubt modified
tbis trait in his character. He came from
Ohio in 1822 (I think) in a canvas-covered
wagon, bringing his- bed and baggage with
him,-and entered the freshmen, class at
Tale College. He was then an Abolition
ist, one of the first water, and has lived to
see his most sanguine anticipations realized.
A few years ago Elizur Wright, Actuary,
and Albert E. Church, for forty years pro
fessor of mathematics at West Point were
employed to make out the tables of statis
tics for the Life Insurance Cos. of New
Tork. They then ascertained that in child
hood they were near neighbors. The one
born on the Canaan aide of the Housatonic
river, near the Falls ; the other on the Sal
isbury side. Both of these gentlemen are
well known by reputation, to many of our
readers, but comparatively few know the
place of their birth. Antiqiubt.
Nelson H. Douglas, of Preston, has been
arrested and placed under f200 bonds for
for selling liquor to jnlnora. .
Town Record Safes. -The large iron sale
of fhe Washiuee Company has been pur
chased by the town and moved into tbe
probate office. Judge Moore -saysnt will
contain all the probate records and a pail
of the land records in the town clerk's of
fice, which is in the same building, and it
must be gratifying to our citizens to know
that a portion, at least, of our public rec
ords are thus protected from fire. By an
examination of our probate records here it
ia found that tbey ouly go back to 1847,
previous to which time the towns of Salis
bury, Canaan add Sharon composed one
probate district, under tbe name of '"The

The ladies, in connection with tte M. E,
Society, of Lime Rock, held a festival in
the Rocky Dell House on Wednesday of
last week, and though the attendance was
not large, the net. sum received was fifty
dollars. , This, is to be added to money al
ready in the treasury and, expended in
cushioning the Union Church. The ladies
have been engaged for the past year and a
half in raising money by sewing circles &c.
which they have, from time to, time, ex
pended in furnishing and, improving the in
terior of the church, and when the cush
ions are completed, which will be in a
couple of weeks, it will present a neat and
comfortable appearance. Tanous denomi
nations have held meetings in this church
from' time to time, but it was not until
some ten years ago, through tbe labors of
Edgar' Clark, that a Methodist class was
formed and it became associated with the
Falls Tillage charge, since which, regular
preaching service has been maintained.
Tbe church nuilding has gone through
some changes since its first erection, which
was in Sharon. From thence it was taken
down and removed to Lime Rock. Five
years ago Mr. Barnum got permission of
the inhabitants to remove it from its eecond
site and place it on land of his own, where
it now stands. Tbe old church is endeared
to the hearts of many of tbe people of
Lime Rock, by both sad and pleasant re
membrances. It is to be hoped, as there
would seem to be no further use of its ra-
muiuing a Union Church, that it will be
given over into the hands of the Method
ists, and its present site secured to them,
so that as they have beautified the interior'
they may, by modern improvements and
additions to the outside, make it an orna
ment to the village, r. ' x.

longer a mystery. The authorities suspect
ed L. H. Howard, Milo Witheret!,; and
Louis Bernard of being the 'parties who
committed tbe act, and thereupon issued a
search warrant aud placed it in the hands
of E; F. Scoviile, who proceeded to search
tbe premises of Howard' and I Bernard,
where he found the stolen articles, some of
which were secreted beneath the garret
floor in Bernard's hooae. The rest were in
use for culinary purposes In both bouses.'
The parties were arrested and brought be
fore John R. Harrison, esq., on the charge
of theft. Howard arid Witherell plead
guilty aud were bound over to tbe Superior
Court under three hundred dollar bonds.
Bernard was tried and found to be an ac
cessory to the act, aud was bound over un
der two hundred dollar bonds. Howard
procured ball, but the others wtre commit
ted to jail to await trial. Upon the forego
ing revelatiou, parties who had lost chick
ens began to look around, and found some
of their chickens upon the premises of L
H. Howard. He denies any knowledge of
bow they came into his possession, and
says he found ibem on his woodpile one
morning, and had allowed them to remain
on his premises. No action has yet been
taken in the matter and we wait further de
velopments with some anxiety. The pub
lic are indignant and seem to demand a rig
orous prosecution. Bernard claimed to be
innocent of any wrong purpose, and said
Howard gave them the tin ware, which
Howard admitted,' but it seemed that Ber
nard knew that some of the articles were
secreted in bis bouse, and that he knew
they were stolen ; therefore it seems to le
the opinion of tbe court that be was an ac
cessory. The only excuse offered by How
ard and Witberall was that : they
were drunk when tbey broke into tbe tin
shop. Howard's house seems to have been
the headquarters of tbe gang, therefore he
is naturally looked upon as the "bell weth

Death From Smokins. Tbe. New York
correspondent of the Buffalo Courier re
ports a sad case of death resulting from
smoking. He says that for thirty years
the victim had been a heavy smoker of tbe
choicest cigars, but in all his other habits
terxiDerate and regular, and of excellent
constitution one who, of nil men would
haye laughed at tbe suggestion that tobac
co was killing him. On Sunday he was
strickin with the progressive paralysis pe
culiar to nicotine, and on the next Sunday
night he died.His death was most pitiful.
First sight was lost, then speech, then the
motion of the neck.' then motion of the
arms, and so on throughout tbo body, and
he lay for a week unable to move or make
a sign, save a pitiful, tongueless, inarticuj
late sound, which sometimes rose to al
most frantic effort, all in vain, to make
knowu what he wished to say to his family
or friends for his consciousness and men

Tobacco License. Among the few peo
pie in the world who are bound together by
the mutual knowledge of their common
destruction' by the use Of tobacco, there has
always been a sort of brotherly agreement
on certain points. One has been that any
user of tobacco, must, if he has the means,
assist his brother along tbe downward path.
The nicotian misery loved company, and to
give a " chew " has am one; certain well-
known users been as much a habit as to
take one. All this, however, must stop,
or rather must be changed. The law of in
ternal revenue allows no person or persons
to sell or dispose of tobacco in any form, no
matter how small or great the bulk, with
out paying first a license of $6. A strict
construction of this regulation manifestly
prohibits the indiscriminate giving and re
ceiving which the doomed haye been in the
habit of enjoying. Hereafter, the "treater
will be known aud recognized, a licensed
member of society. , Whoever wishes to
receive any tobacco from him must firfu
ask If the glvct au license anil then Ik
mny consent to' receive it. Ir eo changes
the relations of , obhgatiou that it is questionable-
whether already befojised ink iU-.Us
will be blile to undcistatid it ; but if realij
lived up to, the law must break up treating.
It were well indeed if it would do it. The
fooliHh custom is not ouly foolish but thor
oughly pernicious. It is more blessed to
give tlian to receiye, to be sure, but it ia a
little hard to be taxed for one's blessings.
