Whitney, ah Tuesday, April lis. The case of Howard vs Cook and Ovitt, was brought to a conclusion this morning. The Judge'scharge was elab orate, and occupied two hours. Theju ry were -together one hour when tney brought in a verdict for the plaintiff of $78 and 33 cents. The next case called was .State vs Sil as Mitehel, indictment, larceny. The lurv brouirht in a verdict of "Not Ouilty." The next case, now on trial, is Slate ph. Silas and George Mitchell, indict inent, larceny. A Complaint About oim Post Of kce. A "Sufferer" in Enosburgli com plains in t le Messenger about the "ir regularity with which letters and pa pers are transmitted to, and particular ly front St. Albans," and our venerable coteinporary very properly sympathises with "Sufferer". The St. Albans Post Ofttco officials plead not guilty to tho charges,and affirm that tho responsibil ity of the "irregularity" lies at other than their doors. But it is well for the Messenger at this time to heed all com plaints that may bo made about tho Post Office, for it is unmistakable proof that it has a deep interest in its welfare. The Iday, it may bo, is not far distant in the luturo when there will be nooccrsion for complaint. When our candidate tho people's candidate shall assume the duties of tho office for which he is preeminently fitted, com plaints of irregularity will cease. There will then bo no false doctrine, heresy uud schism in the world : no storms or tempests or floods ; scarcity and dearth will disappear from tho earth; and water will run up hill. Ought not our candi date to succeed? Ought not the proml 8C3 made four or five years ago, to be fulfilled. Widows. There arc living in Wal- den, in one family, three widow ladies their united ages being 234 years. The oldest is Mrs. Betsey Kittredge, aged 84, and who has been a helpless invalid for tnany years, but retains much of her reasoning faculty, sight and hear ing. Mrs. Sally Robinson, wife of the tho lato Major Robinson, deceased, is 82 years of ago, and for one of her years is remarkable attending to, ami super intending her house and farrainir iter csts as also her invalid sister above mentioned. The last of tho three i3 Mrs. Mary Nutting, aged G8, who is smart and capable, and laboring in tho family by tho year. 1 A ttiKntttur nf t in 11 rectors of thu , Kranklln County Agricultural and Me- ehanlcul Society is called to bo held at i flootlspoed's Hotel, in Sheldon, Thurs- day, May "th, at 10 o'clock a.m. Dramatic Mips Alice ltayinond's Theatrical Troupe, of Boston, as will be seen by our advertising columns, Is to give four entertainments at Academy Hall, commencing Friday evening, and continuing until Tuesday, May 4th. By the encomiums of the State Press, we should judge the company to be a meritoriousonc. TheMon't poller, 7br nal describes the presentation of " X'n der the Gaslight," Saturday evening, in that place thus: Miss Raymond's " Peaehblof-'som " was excellently done, and gave univer sal satisfaction. Mr. Delano's "Snor key" was capital; while Miss Jamison fully sustained the reputation she has eanuV. in thu cities. Delano is an old " Boston Museum Stock " of some four teen years' standing, and can safely en ter the lists with any we have ever had in Montpelier. Tho whole play was finely rendered, and the railroad scene wns all that could be asked, winning warm and long-continued applause. Tin: Fit kb PitKSH Thus Sweet ens. The sugar season is now about over, and contrary to general expecta tion at the commencement of the seas on, on account ot tne great, uepm oi snow then in the woods, the crop is ful ly equal to if not abeve the average yield, while the amount of syrup made, we think, is greater than tver before.

Blaisdell and Miss Aucclia Porter were crossing the river near Cambridge Borough, on Saturday last, tho boat filled and they were witli difficulty rescued from their perilous situation ; also at the same place a young man by the name of La Bounty took an involuntary bath, that required help to bring him out of. On the 24th and 25th iust., the La moille river at Cambridge again com menced to rise and families that had but just returned to their homes that they left on Wednesday and Thursday, on account of high water, are making arrangements t) migrate again to high er ground. During the freshet of last week all of the cellars at the East end of the village were converted into cis terns, in several instances tho water being two feet deep on the lower floor. Middlebuky. C. G. Steele, Esq., has Hold the Sumner farm to Orrin L. Spencer, of Salisbury, for $9,000. The Register says that the water in Otter Creek, at Middlebury, reached a point within about afoot of that reached in 1802. Near Ox Bow bridge the track was submerged for half a mile, uud for a short distance washed away. During Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, large crowds of people stood upon the bridge watching tho debris come down and go over the falls. There were fen ces, wholo and in parts, bridges in like state of transition, lumber, brush, &c., &c. The damage to fences alone, in Ottor Creek Valley, will not fall short of thousands. The bulkhead of tho Middlebury Mfg. Co's. flume gave way, and cannot be replaced for some time, which will be a serious damage to tho mill on that side of the river. Tart of the dam ac cress the river at tho Papermill bridge, was carried oil by .he tremenous pres sure. John S- Buckley was, on tho 22d, ar raigned before Justice McLcod, charged with assault and battery upon the per son of Jeremiah O'Leary ; fined $1 and costs. The trouble arose in connection with catching drift or "fire-wood" in the eddy below the village falls. Dhatii of Pliny H. Wiiitk. We re gret to announce the death of the Rev. Pliny H. White, which event took place at his residence in Coventry last Satuiduy, of paralysis of the bruin. The Barton Standard says : " Ever since lie came to this county ho'has been one of our firmest friends and supporters and our paper has oftentimes had the benefit of his fertile pen, which the community as well as oursclf valued highly. He was a remarkable man both in the extent of his knowledge and tho readiuess with which he could apply it on all occasions. Ho was walking encyclopedia of historical facts and dates, and it will bo a long time be fore Vermont can furnish his equal in this particular. Ho was a warm and genial friend, a temperance man of the strictest sect, and, as wd believe, a con visteut christian, and the church and people of Coventry have suffered a great loss in his death. His remains have been taken to Westminster for burial. On Sunday, at noon, a peddlar of tin ware by tho r.ame of Squire Hawes committed suicide, at Cowausvillo by cutting hia throat. Tho jury found verdict of suicide under a fit of iusunl ty. THE UltANUY ACCIDENT.

Itosseau, the little boy, survivor, ha we learn, since died from his injuries. Mr. Joel C. Baker, of the law linn of Nicholson & Baker, has ucctptcd tho position of local editor of the Rutland Jlcru'd vice Brackctt resigned. We congratulate the Herald in securing so good a man for so good a place. Mr. Bakers's reputation as ropo ter was es tablished by his report of the Shrews bury murder case.

The last case of indolence is that of a mau named John Hole, who was so lazy that, in writinu hia name, he si.n- ply used the letter J . and then punched nolo tnrougu tne paper. A gentleman travelling on a steamer. one day, at dinner, was making way wim a large puuuing close uy, wnon no was told by a servant that it was des sert : "It matters not to me," said he, " I would eat it if it were a wilderness." A humorous old Bantist. who thouirht he was a convert from the Presbyteri ans, would never talk with his old asso ciates about the matter, sayinir: "Roligion and medicine are fancy articles that should never be discus sed." Henry Ward Beechcr savs on tho hai. dyeing question : " If a man will bo tho happier for it, let him do it. If his wife will love him better, or if she will bo, made any happier, in the name of love let him dye. Family happiness is a great blessing to purchase at so small a cost as a bottle of hair-dye."
