On Monday morn.' ing, August 17, a Belvidero corrcspoii' iicnt writes us, as urnn l'letciier, a young man of Bclvidere, about 121 years of age, formerly of the linn of Hurl but & Fletcher, was returning homo from the village, apparently as well as ever, ho stopped to talk witli his uncle, An drew Fletcher, and while talking he was seized with a lit and fell from ins wagon to tne ground. Jie was taken up and carried into his uncle's house, where he had forty-six convul sions closely succeeding caeli other, and was insensible from that time till Wed nesday morning, at 3 o'clock, when he died, apparently in great distress.

KntToits TitAXscitii'T : At three o'clock tills p. m., according to an nouncement, the Vermont Historical Society met in the vestry of the Con gregational church. Tho Society was welcomed in behalf of the citizens by Henry Hall, lisq., of Rutland, in a very able address, in which, after recounting the events that had conspired to keep away the people of Rutland from the meeting, such as the rainy weather, sickness of foiiic, absence of others on a pleasure excursion by the new ly opened railroad route to Montreal and Ogdensburgh, from which so much of material prosperity is hoped for, in difTerence to the objects of the Society among which is nowhere to lie found a recipe for increasing material wealth, &e., &e.,he proceeded to give a summa ry of events in the history of the town and county, and of the origin of the name, replete witli interest to all, whether residents of Rutland or other wise. I cannot attempt to piescnt an abstract of the address which was but an abstract in itself, of a long and pa tient and earnest research in a depart ment in which Mr. Hall lias long sinio distinguished himself. Tlie president of the society, J lev. Pliny H. AVliite, of Coventry, very ap propriately responded, and explained the specific design of the society in holding its meetings at various points to be tlie awakening of a more general interest in its objects, by extending its membership and collecting contribu tions of mutter for its archives. Ex-(Jovcrnor Hiland Hall, of iien- nington, read a historical paper of much interest, pertaining more particularly to that part of the early history of Ha state about which there is tome diver sity of opinion and much reason for doubt : another, and very conclusive evidence, to my mind, at least, that tho gathering up of the fragments of histo ry as inculcated and practiced by the Vt. Historical Society, is one of tlie lirst duties of every patriotic citizen. 1 am lcniinded in this connection of a little incident, pertinent to this subject, which occurred this summer, in my own experience. A tin peddler drove, up to my door, when 1 observed stick ing through it hole in one of his nig bags a peculiar bluish piece of paper. My curiosity was arou&cd, and over hauling his bag I found twelve num bers of the "J'osl Boy anil Vermont ami Hew Hampshire Courier, Windsor, Vt. 1805, printed and published by Nathan Mower, opposite Pot toss' Collee-IIouse," a peculiarly valuable repository of State items of that period. 1 have made some little inquiry but do not learn of an en tire set anywhere, indeed I do not learn that there aro anywhere else in the State so many numbers as 1 saved from this one rag-bag. It cannot bo doubted that among the old families of the State many such relics might bo found, the value of which to future gen eratii ns is inestimable. Hon. Hampton Cults, of Brattleboro, followed Gov. Hall, reading a very lengthy, and in some respects, interest ing paper which had been prepared by Gen. John W. Phelps, of Brattleboro, who was unable to be present. Gen Phelps is a close rcasoner, and a line writer, but in every sense extremely radical. Want of time and space will not permit in this place even a mention of his peculiar isms, but to those who have enjoyed his personal acquaintance for the last three or four years, it is only necessary to say that it is tin embodi ment of all his peculiar views of the past, the present, and the future, of all the nations of tlie earth. Hon. Mr. Cutts, Dr. Fohom and oth ers presented sundry books and pamph lets, after which several new members were elected and tho society adjourned lo met at 7 o'clock when Sj. L. Butcher, Esq., of St. Albans, road a very thorou- ly studied, well condensed, and con cisely expressed account of tho career of the notorious smuggling boat Black Snake during die .Embargo of 1808. This paper full of rich matter for tho historian and politician was received with great favor. Tho events connect ed witli that trauio allairal one time threatened the entire disruption of so ciety in Northwestern Vermont, and yet how very few of tho inhabitants of tlie present day know anything of it. Hon. Hampden Cutts followed Mr. Butcher with a paperon the true olijecls of the Vermont Historical society. I very much regret that my engage ments arc such that 1 cannot remain to the close of the meeting. The char acter of the papers promised for to-morrow must render that portion of tlie meeting intensely interesting and in valuable to tho interests of tlie Society.
