ST. ALBANS, VT. Batukdav, Fkbiiuauy, 27, 1SG9. Itcplu to t( Alban of St. Allans." Since the article, " Servitude to Ser vants" mndo its nppcarnncc in the Messenger, I have carefully scanned the pages of each succeeding issue of that paper, with the expectation of seeing the contents of said article properly crit icised by some more capable pen than that ot a servant girl. Hut thus far, with the exception of a few modest re marks In the editorial columns, it lias pone unmolested. Therefore, as a rep resentative of that class, which is made the subject of such a slanderous article, I ask a short spao' in your columns, that the public may know a servant girl's opinion of the article and its au thor. I say ts a representative of that class, which is made the subject of the article, for while it purports to have been writ ten for the purpcc of awakening house keepers to the eXercite of more personal control over their household ail'airs than is generally assumed by them, its real design is to prejudice housekeepers and others, against that class of servant girls, who, above all others, are noted for their disposition to work for a living ; and are ever rcauy and willing to serve faithfully and honestly those who em ploy them and pay them wages. After alluding to them as " Irish help," he says: " It is a well-known fact that not one servant in a thousand possesses the qualifications essential to do general housework in a proper manner. If peo ple would be more observing, they would discover that not one in ten wash them selves in the n.orning, and then it is as likely to be done in the water dipper as in the basin. The writer has repeat edly seen servant girls, of much experi ence, and of gend reputation, wash themselves in the well-water dipper, and wipe themselves with the dish wiper instead of the towel. Some, even carry a knife in their pockets which they wet in their mouths to smooth butter, mashed potatoes, etc., etc." lie also informs housekeepers that most .-ervant girls arc in the habit of drink ing, receiving late company, stealing from the pantry to support their fami lies, &c., &e. Now, no doubt, there are isolated ea ses, where such charges, at least some of them, will lie; but they are almost Invariably to be found in the employ of lamilics who make it a point to hire none but the eliea, est help ; never pay ing a girl mora than half enough to clothe herself decently ; consequently they get none but the poore.-t servants, who, in order to live, as others do, and perhaps help to support an aged parent, procure by theft what thry cannot ob tain li wages. Undoubtedly, in some instances, a sense of their lowly condi tion, and inability to better it, overcomes their pride of character, and they give way to habits of intemperance. Although such cases arc indeed very rare, it is quite probable that " Alban " observations have been confined to just such unfortunate specimens. But to accuse trie majority of servant girls of such practices, I consider the basest slander upon honest girls ; an imposition upon housekeepers generally, and the article containing such unfounded and abusive charges, altogether undeserving of publication in a local newspaper. Again he says, " if they are discharged for incompetence or insolence, they will go about slandering their employers." ' You can always tell," he says, " when they have been discharged by their Blar.derir.g their lormer employ ers." But ho thinks " experience has taught most housekeepers to place no confidence in their word." Now is that not n personal motive, apparent on the face of those words? The author is evi dently one of those pedantic individu als, figuring among that class oi vain humanity, generally denominated " Codfish Aristocracy," who, in order to keep up an outward show of opulence, is obliged to practice thestiietest econo my at hand, employing the cheapest servants, with whom, no doubt, his hussyish nature Involves him in nu merous quarrels, the result of which is a frequent change of servants. The de parting servant, of course, knows much more about his family affairs than he wishes his neighbors to know, and un der the circumstances, he naturally ex pects she will bo free to eommunicato such knowledge. Henca, his motive for charging servant gills with a want of veracity, and his admonition to housekeepers to discredit their stories about former employers. Under yirc tonce of purposing to instigate a rovolu tion in housekeeping, ho seeks to grati' fy a miserable projudlco by thus assail ing the character of Irish servant girls, Shame on a man (?) who can stoop to injure, directly or indirectly, tho poor, dependent servant girl who is willing to earn her bread by tho sweat of her brow, whoso honest hands are her only means of obtaining an honorable livelihood Ho is not worthy of tho name -man. "Alban" is evidently one of those bit ter, narrow-minded, would-be tyrants, who, desiring distinction of some kind, and not possessing the manly talent to distinguish himself among men, seeks VEEMONT DAILY TR,ANSCBTPT, JIBRIJARY27 JLS697 to make himself popular with a certain class of women by thus cowardly abus ing the less fortunate porthn of their sex, under tho pretence of awakening housekeepers to a knowledge of (ac s which they themselves have every op portunity of possessing, if such facts existed at all, while "Alban" has com paratively none. Under tho same guise, ho attempts an assault on the Catholic Church. In the course of his tirade against Irish servant girls, lie says : "They arc reared to be lieve that it is no sin to deceive a here tic, that the confessional wipes away the sin of lying, deception, potty theft, neglect of duty, kc, consequently the Church docs not interfere any more than obliged for effect only; for the reason that outside of the more populous cities, her main support is obtained through that medium." But the Church needs no one to defend her against such false charges, especially coming from such a source and through such a channel. The time has been in this country when some belief in them might have been entertained, even by the most intelli gent Protestants, but to-day the Catho lic Church is too popular, and its influ ence too generally felt in the United States, for such insects to disturb her. Angel Gabriel is no more, and his dis ciples preach to no effect. Such an ef fort on the part of " Alban " only fur nishes additional evidence of a bigoted, ignorant mind. On the whole, I venture the opinion that the article docs not reflect much credit on its author; and I would advise "Alban," if he cannot find a more man ly sphere of action than prying into the household affairs of women and assum ing so much knowledge of their business, to mt on the attire of a ivomun, that li is real nature may not be disguised in the garb of a gentleman. The men will not mit s him, neither, in that event, could the women boast of a very honor able accession to their ranks.

The Sun's Washington correspondent says that tlie Commissioner of Internal Itevenue un der Gen. Grant will be the Hon. Colum bus Delano, of Ohio. He has served six years in Congress, and his term expires on the lib of March, lie is regarded as one of the purest aid most upright men in public life, and has always taken a leading position in the discussion of in ternal revenue matters. In December iasl, when Mr. itollins expressed a wish to retire, Gen. Grant, through a trusted friend, conveyed to Mr. Rollins a request to hold the Coinmissioncrship till the end of Mr. Johhson'sterm, which Mr. Rollins consented to do if not forced to leave by the condition of his family. The present Commissioner, some time ago told the General that he would like to withdraw as soon as possible after the inauguration, and the President elect then testified his confidence in Mr. De lano by tendering him the place. J'ev.-onal. Tho Richmond Enquirer says that the late Rev. Henry A. Wise was not the last surviving su of Gov. " ise. The latter has two sons living in Richmond, one a physician and the other a law yor. Capt. James F. Armstrong, who was in command of the I'cnsacola Navy Yard when it was captured by the reb els, has resigned his commission and re tired from the naval service. Col. Paiker, the Indian member of Grant's stall", is said to have the inside track for t lie place of Commissioner of Indian Affairs, and the friends of Co lumbus Delano claim that he is to be Commissioner of Internal Revenue. It is reported that President Johnson is to be President of the Mc mphis & El Passo R. R. Co., the joint resolution for which passed the House Thursday and is now pending in the Senate ; and it is added that he will goto Europe to nego tiate its bonds. Tho President finds favor among the Mormons, who are said by a recent vis itor to Utah to regard him as ' the no blest American sinco Washington's day," "a God-like statesman, a true gentleman, and a Christian." Congressional. In the Senate, on Thursday, tho amendment to the appiopriation bill authorizing the Secretary of the Treas ury to pay the outstanding interest ac count of Massachusetts for advances made to the U. S,, was decided to be out of order. Mr. Cattlll, from the committee of con ference in regard to the bill to give to deputy col.ectors and assessors the pay of their principals when they performed their principals' duties, reported that tho committee had agreed upon the bill as It origirally passed the Senate. The report was concurred iu. In tho House there was a lively debate on tho report of the conference commit teo on the consular and diplomatic bill, which war disagreed to. Mr. Boutwcll of Mass., submitted a re port from the conference committee on tho suffrage constitutional amondmcnt. The report recommends that the liouso recede from ltsamcndm ntund ayrec to the Senate proposition. Mr. Bouiwell detuauded the previous question ou agreeing to the report.

The Murder Hole, (concluded.) On getting to tho house just at dawn, all was stll and the inmate i scorned asleep. On knocl'ing, a man apparently just out of bed, raised a window and asked w hat they wanted. Being told to open the door in the King's name, it was done unhesitatingly. "All, George, what did you run away for?" asked the man who opened the door, as he recog nized the bty by tho torches which were still carried. " You know him, then?" queried the magistrate. " Yes, sir, he lived with us some time back." "Did his master stay here any time yesterday?" "Yes, sir; he dined hero and left word for George to follow him to the village of M , but when the boy got hen, his horse was lame and so ho asked permission to stay here all night. The horse is in the stable now, sir." " Atwhat time did the lad run away?" " I don't know, sir, it was quite lute." " How did you know he ran away?" " I saw him, sir ; he mado a ropo of tho bed clothes, and swung down f'om the window. At first I did not know what it was as lie swung down past my window, but when he stood on the ground I saw it was the boy, and was about to call him, when he ran away as fast as he could " "Did you follow him?" "Yes, sir, but wo could not catch him." The house was searched, but nothing could be found to criminate- its I imatcs. Tne boy's horse was found in the stable, quito lame. In searching, 0110 of the men accidentally struck the wainscoat which returned a hollow sound, and ou opening it a small erueiblj and some lapidary's tools, such as are used by goldsmith's, were found. These were claiired by one of the men of tho house, Who said he had been at ono time ap prenticed to a goldsmith, and on enquiry it was found to ho so, The bedclothes were on the bed In which tho lad had slept, and showed by their creases and wrinkles to what use they ha I been put. " What mado this bloody btuln," ask ed the magistrate. " 'Tis a goat's blood, sir, which we slaughtered last night." " A strango time and place to slaugh ter a goat," " Yes, sir, 'Twas the last wo had, and it came homo late to bo fed ; autl when wo tried to catch it it ran up stairs. Wo wanted to give tho boy an early breakfast, and the goat was all tho food we had." " Ilav any of you lost a goat lately ?" esked the magistrate, turjing to tho vil- agers, " and was it marked like this?" showing the skin and head cf a goat which had been found in scorching tho house. 1 " Yes, cir, but the markings arc not' very 1 arc. I could speak more positive ly if I saw the head, one of the horns was broke :i oil' In a lightsome davs since." i The goat's head was examined and both horns were broiten oil. " He had ! intended to make a float's head soup for! their to-day's dinner; I hoy had knock- ' ed them oil'," the man said. 1 " How do you all live? You don't I seem to cultivate the ground here?" j " We do the best wo can, sir. Some-' times we get work in the villages and ' on the farms around, but wo tind it hard to live. One of my brothers was in yi.ir village yesterday trvlng to get work from your nephew." ".lames," said the magistrate to his nephew, "was this so? Old this man apply to you for work?" "A man applied for gardening work yesterday, I think it was that man, but 1 h id no work of that kind for him." At tills point murmurs were heard from the villagers that it was useless to wrong the men any more because of a crazy boy's phrenziod tale, and tho ma gistrate's nephew said it was plain the men were not guilty, and asked the magistrate to let iheiu alone. The magistrate musingly stroked his beard a way he had when puzzled ; he seemed to regard his beard a familiar spirit, and stroking tho proper form of invocation. He called his nephew aside. ' James," said lie, these men arc too honest; there is no fear, no bungling,or mistakes, and no confusion ; thatspokes man is the readiest and coolest knave I have over encountered. Neither their clothing or ippcaranoe accord with their plea of poverty. There is villainy somewhere." He then resumed his questioning. "Have you a bloodhound?" "We had, sir, but we were unable to feed it properly and it died-" Tho magistrate turned to the boy and said : "George, show us where you went last night." The boy did so, and along the track were frequent footprints of a large dog. At the pile of rocks, the dog tracks seemed to cense, nor were there any of the dog's tracks going back toward'tho house. "How came these tracks ?" asked the magistrate. "A dog joined us, drawn probably by our hollowing to the lad, but I do not know what became of him. He'did not go back with us to the house." "There tiro no tracks beyond the rocks; why did you stop there?'' "We saw the blood on the rooks, sir, and thought the boy had fallen and hurt himself, and that he must bo very much frightened, as he didn't stop, "and so we thought it was be-t to let him alone." "Last night was very dark ; how did you sec the blood ?" "I hud a piece cf candle to help find the boy." "George, 'did the man who chased you have a iiglit ?" "None that I could see, sir, though I looked back often." 'I held my hat over the candle, slr.to prevent its being blown out as we ran after the b y." At tnis point the villagers again mur mured ihat, the man was not guilty, ai;d that he was nonest and kind hearted, and ought not, to be worried because of the fancies of a crazy boy. "Ah, sir," continued the man, as if replying to the expostulations of the villagers, " 'tis hard to have our best in tentions wrested against us. Poverty must bo an unpardonable sin, it is sel dom forgiven in this world." The magistrate mused and stroked his beard, as he walked slowly back to the house. "Show mo your spring," he said. It was done, and he examined the margin carefully, but saw nothing to exche suspicion. Again the magistrate stroked his beard mid stood looking at the spring as if in deep thought, while the villa gers Ian hod and jested among them selves at tho idea of a man being hid in a spring scarcely big euough to bold his bead, and glances, rather friendly than otherwise were exchanged withtlte tav ern keepers. "Give mc that polo," suddenly or deied the magistrate, pointing to one some eighteen or twenty feetlong, lying a little way oil'. It was done, and he passed the polo down into spring till scarce any part of it remained above tho water, ami then moved the pole from side to side in such a way as to show that the spring widened as you went deeper, and tliat the cavity was formed so:..ewhat like a bottle with a small neck and nouth. ".lames," said the magistrate to his nephew, "take the lad's hoise, go to my house and ask my wife for tho long lead lino with drag hook attached, and bring It hero. The young man sprang on the horse and galloped oil". Tho magistrate stood stroking his beard and looking from un der his brows at the tavern-keeper : "A cool, ready villian," lie muttered to himself. Very soon tho magistrate's nephew returned with the lead line, and tho magistrate dr pped tho plummet into the spring. Down, down it wont over a hundred feet, until only some threoor four feet remained out. The villagers looked surprised and the tavern-keepers seemed ill at easo, oxoopt their leader who was calm and cool as ever. Several casts were made before anything was brought up, though the hook" repeatedly caught but broke away. At length a piece of cloth with a button on it, cor roded and rotten by tho water was brought up. which seemed to bo a part of a gentleman's coat. Then a pieco of a silk dress, and the next cast brought up the body of a woman with the torn silk dress upon it, 'I ho body had evidently been a long in tho wator, and was enor mous y swollen and far gone in decom position. From quo side tho scalp with lone hair still attached, had slinncd oil' and hung down leaving tho skull bare; ; and on the same side the swollen cheek had left the bones and hung down on I the shoulder, showing tho' grinning teeth, and on tho other side the eye was out of the socket and hanging on tho Cheek, A shuddering, shiveiiug "Ah!" burst simultaneously from the villagers, as with blanched faces and starting eyesi they gazed on the horriblo spectacle. The magistrate stroked his beard and glanced coolly ou tho body, I "Secure the prisoners," was the prompt and stern command. It was done. Iltld tile drnirrrltiir nmil,in,l Presently a leg and thigh came up torn I from the body, and the flesh fallen from ' the thigh through rottenness, leaving, the bono bare, Another cast nnd the1 bodv of u lilnnil linmw! recently dead, came up; and then tho body of a man which seemed to have been but a few hours In the water, and wh.ch was at once recognized by the boy, George, as tho body of his master. Alter tills though tho dragging was con tinued a long time, nothing except a lew bones from bodies very lar gone in putrcftictiin were gotten up, and the ghastly remains wore buried in a com mon gr ive. The tnvern-kceepers wore condemned and hung at the luxt assizes, confessing to the murder at aver (hirtiMlve personal all of wliom had been hidden in the spring. Th j bloodhound lmd followed tho lad's track till it came tothe blood where the boy had fallen i yor the plleof rocks, and there it lay down and no threats or blows could induce it to follow the track Illl V further. 1 had killc 1 the dog and sunk it "in the Tlie chief of the band, it was stated, knew of o. her murders, hut, he steadily refused to confess anything.
