About one I'eloel: this afternoon, a span of horses belonging to Mr. Elias "Washburn, tandiiifj in front of Alosrs. lluryess & Foster's store, on Lake street, became frightened by some now falling irom the roof of the build ing, and ran down tho street at great speed. They wero stopped on Eiin St., and driven back, and on examination were found to be injured. Mr. Joseph Kvtu ts was knocked down by the horses, but escaped with a lew scratches. I'resctitiilitn. Lat evening the Good Templa s Templars o. Honor, and a goodly num bsr of their friends assembled in the Good Templars' Hall, for the purpose of giving Rev. H. K. Cobb another token of their respect and esteem on the occa sion of his departure for the West. Tho meeting was called to order about hah pas . seven, and Mr. C. 11. . nker was elect.'d chairman. The chairman announced that Mr. .McAllister had been delegated to make the presentation and address. Mr. McAllister came forward and pre sented Mr. Cobb, in behalf of the St. Albans Lodge of Good Templars and Crystal Fountain Temple of Honor, with a purse of GS in monoy. lie roviowed briefly the progress of these two organi zations during the past two years, and said that a good deal of their success was attributable to Bro. Cobb's influence and exertions. He felt confident, how ever, ihat his removal lrom amongst us was to be a sourco of good to those am nig whom he would labor in future. In reply, Bro. Cobb said that ho could not find words to express his gratitude. Ho felt that in giving his exertions and inlluenee to so noblo a work he was but doing his duty as a Christian. When he looked back to the time when nine persons assembled to oiganizo the lodge of Good Templars, and then looking at the lodge in its present nourishing con dition, numbering IJ40 members, he felt that tho Lord was with them, blessing their humble endeavors. After n s'.iort recess, the members ot the Temple of Honor formed a circle in tho center of tho hall, and Elder Ray addressed Mr. Cobb in very touching manner, alluding to tho service he had , Israel F. Knoa, of East Middlcbury, rendered while n member of the Temple, j hns sold his gristmill, farm, and dwel and Mr. Cobb rojiliud very appropriate- ling house, to Lewis Russell, EMp, of ly.

II., who wns arrested last week for stealing letters from the mails on some of the New Hampshire and Ver mont railroads, has had quite nn expe rience in that line of theft, according to the Concord Patriot. That paper states that Davis served in one of tho New Hampshire regiments during the war and carried the mails for his regiment. He was accused of pilfering from those mails and was shot by v soldier, which accounts for a missing arm. He got into tho Christian Commission, and at the battle of Spottsylvania Court House va rious valuables came into his possession from wounded men, which he kept. He was Assistant Doorkeeper of the House of Representatives in J804, and got into trouble, being accused of confiscating letters. Onoof theso lettors contained a draft, and such a breezo was raised about his ears that he resigned. Ho wid prob- ibly be placed soon whore ho will not have much opportunity to practice his Laki: Bomiiazink IIousk. A Castle- ton correspondent of the Rutland Herald thus speaks of this hotel : The new hotel in Castleton, styled the Lake Bombazine House, is about co.nplctcd. and soon to be opwnnd to tho public, in s notne cititice nas been near ly a vear in o itirse ot construction, it is liftv feet square, three stories high, thirteen feet between lloors and con tains thirty-six rooms, all of them spa cious and airy, twenty-eightof them arc sleeping rooms, besides fire pariors, ono on the first ana two on each of the floors ibovo, with ;. large dining room and commodious business ollice below, together with "Wide halls or passa ges running through the dlll'-Tent lpartments with rooms on either siueof them. Tho architect and builder was Mr. J. Bosworth, of Fairhaven. The furnituie, carpets and cioekcry are from tho house of N. Weeks & Co., of Rutland and are of a superior order. The gas works and fixtures were put in by Co buin it Germain, of Rutland. The pro perty above described, wi.h tho large Jttiltling in tlie rar connected with it. and the grounds sui rounding the wh do is owned bv Mr. . 2s.

Tho Customs Revenue of the Canadi an Uovermeat, tor January ISO!) was $177,103 against $144,759 last year. A correspondent of the Richford Sen tinel thus speaks of the recent fire at bercorn : Our little village was startled on Sat urday night lasu by theory of fire, which way discovered to be at the store of Mes srs. Holmes & Ross. Both members o. tlie firm were absent at the time, and tho fire, which was lirst discovered by vlrs. Holmes, was, it is supposed, caused by tlie expl sion of a kerosene oil lamp, which had been left partially turned down. However tnis may be fcr it is mere conjecture it was soon found that every effort to save the building with its vaiuaiile stocu was truiuess and everv attontion was turned to au endeavor to save the adjoining dwellings. By this time many even troni your village had arrive at tne scene, anu uy their exer tions much other property was saved ftom destruction. The lire itself will undoubtedly en tail upon Messrs. Holmes & Ross very great loss, for although their stock, which was quite larire, was partially covered by Insurance, tho loss must bo very heavy. T.iis fire has not only caused less to them, but to the in habitants generally: s.nce they were esteemed here as thorough business men. and had earned for themselves from the people a very large share of confidence so much so, indeed, that the hope .s generally expressed by our whole community that Uiey may be able to make such arrangements as will permit th.m to resumo business atau eirly day. I find this to be the general wish, and I freely endorse it, believing thoy well merit ah tho help that a geu eious publ.c should bes ow upon indus trious, enterprising und deserving men. " Skunks."
