the notion of the members from Lam . llle

net asked for by the town of St. Vlbnns,
through her representative. It believe
there was no jealousy townrda St. Al
bans, on the part of members from La

vote for the measure. " But," it contin
ues, we Were committed to the Shel

cause Bt. Albans last year turned the
cold shoulder to us. nnd Cambridge had
plnccd a huge impediment In the way
of thnt route." The people nf Lamoille
being nt present engaged to Fairilcld,
Sheldon and Swnntoil, our wide-awake
cc-tempornry declnres, thnt "they do
not propose to flirt nor hob-nob with
St. Albans, at least ngainst the wishes
of their accepted friends In those towns,
of whom there is -no doubt about the
genuineness of their friendship." The
Newsdealer concludes Its article us fol
Now, as we look upon the matter, wc
have but one course to pursue. V e
muet bend nil our energies for the suc
cess of the route to Swanton, to which
we are honorably committed, as long as
the people on that route nssist ns they
are now doing. This was the precise
course pursued by St. Johnsbtiry to
wards us. As long as they stood engag
ed to Montpelicr. we could not negotiate
with them. 'Sued duplicity would have
been dishonorable and given us but lit
tle confidence in the men who could
have praoticed it. As we need all our
strength concentrated upon a single

liemarleahle Gas Explosion,
The house of Mr. L. II. Hubby, of
Cleveland, Ohio, was destroyed by a gas
explosion on tho evening of tho 5th inst.
which was of an unusual and singular
character. The house was supplied
with gas from a patent machine, which
had been located outside of tho building
to ensure safety. On theevening na ned,
tho ligjit being fitful, Mr. Hubby pro
ceeded to examine tho apparatus. The
account says :
"Procuring a light ho descended to
cellar containing tho main, but could
discover nothing tho matter .here. " The
tainted possible smell of gas psrvaded
the atmosphere, but he attributed it to
the apparatus outside, which, when in
use, always gives ott'a faint odor, pecul
iar to ga , and ho supposed it came in
to tho cellar, through the op.n'door.
When about half way across tho floor
he set tho candle down, and in an in
stant an explosion took place, producing
u uuise eiium 10 u iouu pcai oi munucr.
A sharp, stinuglug sensation In his
hands and face told him that he was in
jured. Before him ho Baw a lurid ularc,
and behind him was darkness.
At the time of the explosion there
were five people'ln the house besides Mr.
Hubby. Miss Ella Hubby, a young la
dy igi-toen years old; Frank, Mr. Hub
by's. Ron, nnd Frank's vJ o, wero nil In

covered near an opening In the building
where, a lew moments uetorc, a win

wns blown there.
Miss E la was first seen alter the
shock on the lawn in front of the house,
her clothes all In a blaze, and in deadly
peril. The grandmother was found
standing by the hall door, uninjured,
nnd vainly trying mine way to un lo
tlio fastening. She srys the coiling ot
her room lu-iran to fall upon her, she
saw the walls rock, and then heard
report, mingled with the crashing oi
lass. She Knew t.iai somenuug lei ri
le hnd hanncned. nnd instinctively
sought the back stall's, and so saved her
self. For a time it was feared thnt tlio
wife of Mr. Hubby had been buried in
the ruins or killed outright by the ex
plosion, but nn extended senrch reveal

Tho explosion was so terrific ns to
completely destroy tlio house and all
the furniture, which, together were val

JSditor Transcript :
Many months have passed since last I
wrote you, and enriovored to enlist your
sympathies in my behalf. I am con
stitutionally led to believe that disap
pointments fence my lot about, and from
this lot there is no "scape. Still fresh
in my memory remains my visit to St,
Albans last summer, and the cold re
ception which I received from the
Tkaxscuii'T sheet, in tlio shape of a
wet blanket thrown over my business.
Circumstances compel mo to ndvise
witli you again, and to forget those
grievance.? which a stranger can only
know, and which can only be
aggravated by publishing my studied
letters In your paper. My friends aro
few in the States, and very lew any
where, and if I write to you it is for the
lenson that I am unable to chose my
friends and that you aro as good as any
of them, and would be fu 1 as likely to
Upon my return from St. Albans last
3ummcr, I went into tho Quarter-mas
ters business, of which you have already
been made i.cqualnted. As a post
ueen Ecvore, ior l early learned that
the jlerks could ifsuo the w.ir material
in my absence as wJll, a.id all that was
necessary for me to do, was, to happen
around occasionally and sign my name.
I was not obliged to go upon drills or to
appe.ir at divss-parades even, except to
be musterc-l for pay. My insignia of
milk wns worn constantly, which was a
passport to the best of society. Every
body noticed my shoulder straps and be
lieved mo better than a private so.dier
for that reason, wnich opinions very
much delighted me. As lime moved
on, I became greatly pleased with my
position and my only anxiety wns, thnt
the Foninn troubles might continue.
Many of the soldiers of my regiment
had served in the United States arm;-,
and prided themselves upon their drill,
exceedingly. It was not necessary that
I should have any controversy with
them in this matter as a quarter-mastdr's
ability is not compromised in this busi
ness. What were tney to Bartholomew
ot. Clair J Although I had not served
in tho army of tho States, my standing
was netter lor that reason ; I was not
suspected of being tainted. with Fenian
ism, and they were. How had theii
services been obtained by tho States
by Yankee sharpers and substitute bro
kers who made large sums of money out
oi them as they passed from hand to
hand, at each successive sale. Enough
of this kind of proceeding, and a suffi
cient number of this class of soldiers
would prove to be a death blow to tho
New Dominion. My regiment was not
regarded with tho highest favor by the
Canadian authorities, but this was no
fault of mine.
During the greatest excitement we
ciu jiuvur ho in. 10 uie iront Where our
soldiers might become influenced by tho
Yankee Fenians, but tho regiment was
retained is a corps of observation, with
little more to do than to observe the eb
bing nnd flowing of tho Lake tide at St.
Johns, mid to obtain our regular raiions.
The rations as u general thing have been
furnished in abundance, and when tlio
rank and file have been well supplied
there was p.aco in tho camp, and the
men would endure any number of days
in tho guard house, Belonging to tlio
corps of observation, I remember on
one occcaslon, that, as the schooner
"Daniel Webster" supposed to bo 1 den
with Fenian arms, was sweeping down
upon us one dark night before a strong
South wind, at Rouse's Point she ran
into tho "draw" of tho Vermont Central
Railroad bridge. Tho bridge was closed
at the time was tin strongest, nnd
tri ned her masts c eau to tho deck from
stem to stern in an instant, and her Cap
tain Jumped overboard to save him elf.
T lis t.ino y stoppage prevented the
'Daniel Webster" rrom reaching Cann
da with her Fenian magazines, and wc
rejoiced in the remedy. With tills
bridgo at R.U3c's Point in thu hands
of a friendly corporation, I should feci
perfectly safe to remain with my regi
ment nt ;Si. Johns, for an indefinite
number of years.
To make Impcslbllitlos doubly sure,
the Ice has come to tho rescue nnd has
cutoff" all communication by water with
the Stntcs. Tlio elements otherwise
favor us, and tho Fenians must have !

making us a visit overland. Th cars
from St. Albans must neecssarilj pass
"Pete Smith's" before they can reach
St.Johns,and the Canadian government
understands full well, judging from pa.t
experience, thnt the Fenians would be
unable to reach us through that avenue,
nnd n number of weeks since concluded
that our regiment wnS not needed in the
seivlcc. It behooves the Now Domin
ion to practlco rigid economy, as our
National debt already greatly exceeds
that of the Unitcdotale.ln proportion to
our resources and ability to pay up, and
there are always to be found, politicians
who will readily seize hold of any hobby
to make thcnnselves conspicuous; and
they have found it in economy. It soon
began to be whispered around that wo
were tn bo inustcre J out of the service.
It was claiinc 1 that the soldiers were
living too easily and that they ate too
much, nnd with the slnrt crops, and
short straw, our muer out became im
Nothing could prevent this calamity
befalling the regiment except a Fenian
move from the States which seemed im
probable. Having been to St. Albans
once on a private expedition, the quar
ter-master was scle.cted by tho officers of
the regiment to proceed to Philadelphia
to attend the Fenian Congress there and
ascertain if possible, whether tho Fe
nians contemplated a movement, and if
there was any doubts about it, to help
the thing along. Laying aside my mil
form for the fiisttime since I joined th
service, I borrowed n sufficient sum of
money from the parent of a family that
I had become interested in, and hurried
on to Philadelphia. My trip was fruit
less, as tho Fenian Congress had ad
journed a few days before my arrival
and I was unable to find a single Fc

Upon my return via St. Albans

my past experience nf e'n'ueav nngib
llnd the water power myself, came vi
vidly to mind.- The train did not make
connections, and in my perambulations
over tho ground I knew so well, I dis
covered that a number of good looking
buildings had been erected upon the
stream just west of the depot. Sure
enough, I thought, your State Parlin
ment lud surmounted the difficulties
through their Surveyors, nnd had found
it. I was ready to " acknowledge the
corn" and to believe in the wisdom of
the State, which had during my absence
been nblo to discover the site which hnd
troubled me 82 much to find, nnd thnt
tho paper mill company had improved
upon the discovery, and had built a pa
p.rmill thereon immediately afterwards
Thither I went to satisfy myself o." my
former stupidity, and was kindly re
coived by the laboring men of the es
tablishment, but saw at a glance, as one
of the men was pitching coal into an
oven hotter tlian tenplaces of torment,
that it was not a paper mill. To excuse
myself, I asked one of the laborers if tho
paper mill had been erected during tho
past summer, and his face grew palo

to know that it was not a paper mill.'
He said that all the paper mill ho knew
anything about in town was a carboniz

enough to admit of the skating of a one

tho towns people were comoelled to go
