On Thursday forenoon, in attempting to kick away an obstacle, while assist ing In pushing an engine along the track at thu machine shop, Mr. E. T. Green had his right foot run over and badly crushed. Drs. Hull and Nichols vvcic called, and it is thought that his foot will be saved. Tin: Post Office. The statement of the Free Press of yesterday that the Post Office question in St. Albans was becoming simplified by the withdraw al of the senior publisher of the Messui fcr us a candidate, is not true. If he withdraws there will be some good reason for It. Messenger of the ltt. We give place to the above statement with great pleasure, and should not have copied the statement of the Free Press hud we not supposed that it was per fectly reliable. The Free Press it would seem from the above authoritative an nouncement, was misinformed. We re joice that there has been no withdrawal and will be none unless there 1-s " some good reason for it." And may we not hope that such an unfortunute, even ca lamitous time may never come? - - - Swanton. Cupt. Hiram Piatt, and Major li. N. Bullnrd have purchased the Finnklin County grist and flouring mill at Swunton Falls, owned by Jos. Blake and N. A. Lasell's estate, for which they paid $10,000. The "boys" are going to make thorough repairs on the mill this spting, and put it in "apple-pie order" for flouring and grinding grists. Mr. E. S. Meigs has purchased 11. A.

Clough, purporting to reside In Bostou, lately turned up In Ludlow, representing himself as being employed by the Grand Lodge of I. O. G.T., of North America, to visit and report the condition of all subordinate lodges. Whilo thero he mado himself very much at home among the members t.fthe order, till finally, one morning, lie " came up missing," having foigot ten to pay for several days board at the hotel. Ho is evidently an impostor. Mtt. .1. 11. Hathaway, formerly of Troy N.

To Uij Exi arm KD. The Hut-dwell House of Rutland is to be enla:ged by extending it north some 10 or o() feet on Metchantx' Row, of the same height us the present building. A F tench roof is to bep.it upon the whole building. The present house is to be thoroughly re paired, relit ted, and newly furnished throughout. When these important Im provements have been completed it will be one of the largest and most elegant hotels in the State. At an early day Mr. Henry Campbell, Braltleboio, long and favorably known to travelers, lwill become the manager, under Mr. Cram ton. Attempt to Ron a Rank. We learn from the Rutland Herald that an un successful attempt was made to rob the First National Rank of Fairhaven, on Tuesday night, or early Wednesday morning. The rogues effected an en trance through the window, first hav ing pasted a sheet of pape" over the glass, to prevent any noise being made from the broken glass, and then pushed it in. after which they unfastened the window. An attempt was made to thill a hole through the safe to the lock and then insert gunpowdcj ; but, for tunately, the drill brokv off after pene trating about tli ree-fourths of an inch. The rogues left their powder, acids, and some loose papers, on the floor near thci- base of operations. Death ok Thomas Child. We learn that Thomas Child, Esq., a native of Rakersflcd, died ut his residence on Statcn Island, on the 8th Inst., aged 51 years. Mr. Child practiced law in Berkshire for several years, and about the year LS-19 removed to the city of New York. After his election ho was taken sick and was not able to leave his house until his term had expired. In 1SG3 he was elected a member of the New York Assembly. He served about three weeks when he was again taken sick and from which sickness he never recovered. He was a man of superior ability and his death is mourned by a large circle-of friends. Tin; Windsor Journal says that the bill providing for a term of tlieU. S. Courts at Burlington was passed upon the petition of Hon. D. A. Smaily, Judge, of Burlington; Hon. D. C. Dei:- ison, District Attornoy, of Royalton; Hon. Hugh II. Henry, Marshal, ofChes tcr; aud about forty" Judiciary members of the Bar" from different parts of the State, including the late Andrew Tracy, Esq. and Gov. Converse of "Woodstock; C. A. Webster, Esq., of Rochester and W. H. Walker, Esq. of Ludlow. Tills is pretty strong backin-i, we should say, and such a affords strong presumptive proof that there was a clear demand and need for the measure, on the part of the bar of Vermont. Dkath of Hon. Myron W. Clark. Hon. Myron W. Clark, who has long Leen identified wit the public enter prises of Veimont, died of apoplexy at his residence, at Factory Point, Man chester, on Tuesday morning, aged 79 years. Hewnsborn in Hoosac, Rensse laer County, New York. After carry ing on a tanning. business for a few years at Rupert, Bennington County, he removed to Factory Point, Manches ter.wherc he again established the same business on a more extended scale. His enterprise and extensive business rela tions soon made him the leading man of the not th shire of Bennington Coun ty, and through his influence was built up the village of Factory Point, the rival of the old village of Manchester. In 1824, Judge Clark, at the age of 34 years, was elected one of the Assistant Judges of the BenningtonCountj Court, and was re-elected in 1825 and 1820. He was elected three terms as one of the Governor's Council In 1828, 1829, and 1S30. He was also Judge of Probate for the District of Manchester in 1831, 1832, 1S33, and 1834. In 1802, at the age of 72 years, and 32 years after he had served as a member of the old council, he was elected to the Senate, and was re-elected in 1S03. The building of the Western Vermont R. R. was greatly due to him, and was : one of the favorite projects of his life. For several years he had the manage ment or the road, until it passed into other hands, and sacrificed to the pub lic good most of his property. Judge Clark was twico married ; his second wife survives him. He leaves several children, among whom are Augustus D. Clark, Esq., of Manchester, Mrs. C. M. Davoy, of Rutland, Mrs. George Douglass, of New York, and Mrs. Mea cbam, of Wollingford, Rhsimnatiox. The Hart ord (Conn.) Time of March 8th, has the following notice of (lie Kev. Geo. 11. Spauldlng's resignation of the Pa torate of Park St. church, in that city. Mr. Spatildlng is a Vernionter by birth, aud a graduate of the rnlversify of Vermont : At the close of thccouimunlon set vice, yesterday m. :rning, at the Park Street church, the Pastor, Rev. Geo. It. Spaul ding, stated ta the congregation that he had a communication to make to theai, and 'hen proceeded to read a brief let ter, tn which he tendered his assigna tion as Putoi of the Park church, and requested the church ami society to unite with him in calling a council for his dismission. The onlv reason offered in the letter of resignation I't this ac tion, was that found in the peculiar cir cumstances in which the church Is at present involved. Tills communica tion occasioned great surprise tothe con gregation, II was entirely unexpect ed, and will produce deep and wide re gret, not only in the Park Church, but throughout the whole community. The Rev. Mr. Spaulding win settled over the North church, (now Park church,) in September, 1804, and Hartford has no more industrious, earnest, faithful, Christian minister than he has been through these last five years. No city minister lias a higher place in the re spect aud confidence of all classes of the community. Placed In circumstances of peculiar difficulties, he has borne himself most ably, humbly, patiently, and bravely. If Mr. Spaulding persists in asking a dismission, Hartford will lose one of her very best and most re spected clergymen, and hosts of fast trie ds will deplore his departure. It is not yet known what action will bo taken by the church and society In the matter." . Looi Here. A choice lot of Siberian Seed Wheat for sale.

Cabinet Meeting, New Yohk, 12th. The Cuiiiml feioamoi- Rtibsin, from Llvei'i ool, Fob. 27, nrrlvod nt tills port yestordny. Tho news of the explosion of tho Aus trian steam frigate Railltzky, has caused tho most painful foolinc nt. Vienna. It seems that the accident occurred while the vessel wis practicing some evolu tions, and that the explosion originated In one of the povder magazines. About 20 11 vert were saved out of a crew of -100 men. The steamer Ricnonkorb, whoso de parture from Bremer Haven on n new Polar expedition is announced to pio ceed on the same course as that pursued by the Germ inia, last summer. The expedition has been fitted out;ontlrcly at the expense of Ilerr Rosenthat, of Bremer Haven. Tho Blenonkorb is to remain (luting tho llshing season offthe Island of Jan Mayen, and will proceed about the end of Juno on its voynge of discovery northward nlong tho eastern co st oi Greenland. News from Crete is to the effect that all symptoms of political agitation have disappeared from the island. The two last insurgent chiefs of the eastern dis trict have submitted. New Yohk, 12th. The Tribune endorses the appoint ment of Gsn. Longstrcct for surveyor of the Port of New Orleans, and says our new President has done many nets for which the country will over hold him in grateful remembrance, but lie never did n -wiser or nobler act. This nomina tion for a high trust by President Grant is one of the best measures of practical reconstruction yet devised, ami reflects honor on all concerned. "NVe hope for its prompt confirmation. The Jlcralrf, after commending the Cabinet, says, the President lias evi dently labored, in his appointments, to secure competent assistants in his ad ministration, and to avoid, at the same time, a quarrel with Congress. The Tribi'iic says, this is a strong and safe Cabinet, ai.d will prove harmoni ous and efficient. Wo do not pronounce it abler than the original Cabinet, yet it will not suffer by comparison with it. There is not a man in it wl-o has sought appointment, nor one who has not ac cepted cheerfully. A despatch from Montreal, dated yes terday, says a heavy snow storm pre vailed yesterday.
