VJ4KMONT DAILY TllASORTPT, .) LHSTb 8, 1868.
Vermont Daily Transcript, Wkdnksday, Junh :i, is. Local Items, Tin: Hi'iscoi'.u, Convocation. It will be seen thnt vc have seemed a very full anil accurate report of the first day's proceedings oftho Episcopal Convoca tion at Montpolior, which we print to da., . The eonfeciation of Rev. Dr. Bis scll as Bishop of the Diocese of Ver mont, which took place to-ilay, will he the subject of of a report which we shall publish to-morrow. As the pro ceedings of the Convocation are of spe cial interest to a considerable number of our readers, we think it may be fairly expected that a "live dally" wilt give (hem. GLMUtAL CONCiUKUATlONAL Cox- vi ntion. The general convention of Congregational churches in Vermont will be held at Sr. .iohnshtiry, commenc ing on Tuesday, June Kith. -t- XuW LoiHiHixFAiHi'lULl). A Lodge of Good Templars was infitituteil in Fair field Tuesday evening, by I). CI. V. C. T., Yv". A. Cooper, assisted by olllcers and members of St. Albans Lodge. The new lodge starts oil' with a membership of about oi), and bids fair to do a good work in Fairfield. About 40 of the m nibcrs or St. Albans lodge were prcs ent at the institution, and made the oc encion one of interest to all concered. The olllcers of the new Lodge are as fol lows : Rev. I). Wild, Miss M. E. .Northrop, Jo: oph Northrop, II. Bcntly, Harmon ISorlhrop, Frank MeEntyie, diM. J. I. Hunt, W. C V. V W. W. F YV . T. , T. G. , S. , T. W. M. I. (i. O. R. JI L.

Ogdensburgh and Rutland are taking the initiatory steps lor celebrating the "Glorious Fourth." St. Albans pioposes soon to follow in their wake. Tiiiho. ffwe should happen to have some Tinted States troons here on the -llh of July, to aid in a celebration of thai day, it would add much to the interest of tho occasion. At any rale, we think it best to be prepared to take advantage of any such aid which may come to us, to make a worthy observance of a patriotic i u.-tom. Tom Tuumh. Remember the enter lainment at Academy Hall at 3 o'clock p. m., and and 8 p. m., to-morrow, to be given by the Tom Thumb Troupe. The troupe isa wonderful one, and will draw a large crowd, we do not doubt. AYo heard Commodore Nutt, who is one of this diminutive band, accuse a cousin of his, in New York city, in 1802, of be ing one of the men who helped capture the "Quaker guns" at Manages, one of which was then in Rarnum's Museum; and the joke was highly relished by all but the brave relative. Both tho Com modore and the general are fond of their "little joke." - - - - An Economical Sih:ui:stion. The Common, which " might, could, would or should be" a park, is a place where the boys of the village are in the habit of congiegating, especially on pleasant evenings, and where they play the pleas ant game known to boyhood, and kind ly remembered in manhood. I lint is all right. Tho "bandbox" Is situated conveniently on the Common, or park There can be no objection to (lad. Tt looks suggestive of oratory as well as convenient for music, and it has a kind of pagoda look that even suggests tho idea of worship, sulllclently Jlurme.se to throw its shielding inlluence around the sacred cows that occasionally come about It. But boys are foolishly and wickedly obtuse to this inlluence. They do not fear to invade tho very Ediilec in pursuit of sport. No one forbids this, no one objects to it ; or we are sure the "generation" that keep "rising" on the lattice work of the "box" would desist from their climbing. Now, as the boys wish to obtain the highest seats in this svnatroirue. and as no objections are made, and tho lattice work on the out side is a continual hindrance to their "rising in the world" according to their inclination, the suggestion wlu.h we make, and which has been made to us bv an elderly man who has himself been a boy, is (liat tho "band-box" be left unlocked, so that there may be an entrance free which will save the lat tice work, which is more expensive than the stairs.

The Bos ton Journal says that tho Portland, Sa- co, and l'orismoutn Kaiiroad company held their annual meeting nt Klttery Hall, Portsmouth, on June 1st, and elected tho following board of office rn for tlio ensuing year : Directors Ichabod Goodwin, Ports mouth : Geo.

The annual meeting of the clerical con vocation of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Vermont, was hold at Christ Church, Montpolior, on Tuesday morning, June 2d, 1W5S, at DJ o'clock, at which lime, besides the election of the olllee-bearers for the year ensuing, the reading or the usual esay and exegesis was postponed until the next quarter-yearly meeting. At 10J j o'clock, a procession of nearly thirty clergymen in full robes, with the im posing figure of Mishop "Williams of Connecticut, and Bishop McCosUcy of Michigan, at the head, were welcomed at the vestibule of Christ Church by the "Wardens and Vestry, and passed up the broad aisle, Rishop Williams and clergy repeating alternately thep-alm set forth In the Episcopal service forconsecrating churches. After the instrument of donation and bequest were read by the Rev. Daniel C. Roberts, Rector of Christ Church, the service for the consecration of churches was proceeded with anil the ofllcial sen tence of consecration, duly signed and sealed, was read by the Rev. Mnlcom Douglass of Windsor. This was a care fully written deed with solemn cove nants setting apart forever the church, free from all worldlyand ,ecularues,and consecrating It to the worship of (tod under the charge of the Bishop of the Piotestant Episcopal Church in the DioechC of Vermont, and his successors in office. Morning prayer was then said, the choir taking their proper part witli un usual effect in the chants and anthems. The Bev. Dr. Bailey ot Sheldon, the Bcv, R. tf. Howard, ot Woodstock, Rev. E. B.

Rev. Bishop Williams ot Con necticut, then preached a powerfuljaiid eloquent sermon on the essentials of Christian Worship, selecting as his text, St. John, 4th chapter and oth verse. The closing allusions to the death and burial of Bishop Hopkins, and (he clos ing consecration of Bev. Dr. Rissell, were exceedingly ocauuuu ana mh-ci- hly and feelingly expressed The arrangements for this impressive service were well maue aim aiuniramy carried out. The singing under the direction of Mr. A. J. Plullpps, and the organ-play ing by Mr. (!. YV. "Wilder, wore remark ably good and added much to the interest and solemnity of the occasion. The gothic church edifice of which Mr. Randall, of Butland, is the Archi tect, is a monument of good taste and tho liberality of the parish, and reflects much credit upon the building Commit tee, and especially upon the Hon. Hod- crick Bichardi-on, who by his munili- cence and pains taking, has rendered im portant aid in the building of this new ind costly Church edifice in Montpol ior.

LATEST NEWS! Views of Mr.. Chase! ELECTIONS IN OREGON! DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSMAN ELECTED. The Rejection of Stanberry! Salo of Steamships at Boston. THE KINGSTON MURDER I New York, June .'1. riie steainHhip from Havre arrived here to-day. Anione- the lmssciiKcrs are leneral Hooker and Professor Morse. A western letter states that Judge Chase recently expressed himself In unison with the Democratic party in everything except universal HiiHrage. If elected hy that parly to the Presiden cy, he would carry out their policy faithfully and labor to make tho party one of permanent usefulness; hut ho does not -want the Presidency, is not a andidate for nomination, and -would not assume (he ofllce at the sacrifice of honest convictions. San Francisco, June 2. The elections held in Oregon yester day resulted in a Democratic triumph. The Democratic Congressman was elect ed by 1,001) majority. Portland city gives '21 Democratic majority, but. the county gives 300 Republican majority. IMie legislative candidates elected, and the county ofllceis, are nearly all Demo cratic. The news of the nomination of Grant mil Colfax was recieved with much en thusiasm. Washington, June 3. Tho rejection of Mr. Stanbury by tho Senate yesterday was much upon tlio ground that he has refused to arguo bo- fore tho Supreme Court in favor of the constitutionality of tho laws of Con gress which the President holds to be unconstitutional. Thiscourse was pur sued by Mr. Stanberry in the McArdle case, and lie has made no secret that the same rule would govern his action in any similar cases. This assumption tho majority of-the Senate feel they could not encourage, as they hold, on the contrary, that it is as plainly tho duty of the Attorney General to assume the constitutionality of regularly cn- ictcd laws, and assist in tlieir enforce ment, as it is the duty of tho President to assume tlieir validity, and unhesi tatingly execute thorn. Boston, June li. The steamships Ontario and Erie wcro -;old at auction at Grand Junction wharf to-day. They wero bid off by Nathan iel Winsor, of tho linn of N.
