J-klitor Transcript : For the information of the public, allow me to make a statement in the columns of yourjournal. There are cer tain meetings held at private houses and at a school house in this village, and at the Congregational Church at the Bay, which are known to tlie public only as Methodist assemblages. I sim ply wish it to be understood that they nre not appointed, authorized, encoui- aged or controlled in any way by the Methodist Episcopal Church. The wiso public will, therefore, oblige us by kind ly discriminating between the self styled Methodist congregations and those which legitimately inherit the denominational title. Yours, for the truth, V. D. Malcom, Pastor of tho M. E. Church. St. Albans, May i!0th, 1800. Dkspkkatu Attkmpt to Bki:ak J Air . Tsnac Crcpaux and Thos. Smith colored) made a desperate attempt to break jail this afternoon, with a hatchet which was left in tho jail for them to split wood for their stove. They broke an iron bolt, and bent back a large Iron bir, and knocked out several bricks, makinir a place large enough for them to get out. QMrs. Place was up stairs, and observ ing a french woman beckoning to some me, she concluded all was not right. She came down from up stairs to the iail otllce. and then heard a brick fall on the sidewalk. Charles Place, a no bio looking boy of about eleven years, with a club, kept them from getting out until Mr. Place arrived. He had to strike them several times to keep them in They are now shackled, handsand feet, cad! to tlu1 other, and locked up in a (Ml. They will both be taken to Statu Prison to-morrow, Smith to My eluht, and f'rejuuix three year-'. I'MHSoNAi.. We received a call to-day from Mr. Chus. E.

The Jlcn nington Jianivr thus speaks of the Lod ge of Ciood Templars in that village: The lodge is in a most llouriniing condition, and is doini: a great amount of L'ood. Men and numbers of them oo who but few months ago spent every cent tliev couui earn lor rum, leavinti their families to get along as best they might, have been throughly reformed by the Good Templars, and now go about our streets witli healthy countenances and ubright, manly step. There are many such instances. And we say frankly, and without fear of successful denial, that the Bennington Oood Templars, as an organization, have done more for the promotion of temperance, during the few months of their existence, and saved more men from the clutch, than all the Maine Laws ever enacted, or attempted to be prosecuted. We aro convinced fully that the Main Laws isa little too much like reforming a man by knocking him down with a hard wood club, and had rather see one temperance organization in our midst, believing in moral suasion than a scoie of constabulary ollicers, who.e legal ideas of leforming a man aie embraced in a pair of handcuff and the county jail. PitocroKSViLLi:. On Sunday eve last while the hotel-keeper at Proetorsville, H. A. Howe, with his wife and child, was returning from the residence of his daughter in Chester, in a covered car riage drawn by two horses, his horses became frightened at the swinging and unsafe condition of the highway bridge above Oassetts, while crossing it, broke the pole of the carriage, the tugs still holding firm. Approaching the railroad crossing one line broke, which drew them around and across the track, and finally rearing and pitching horses, carriage and all, down the em bankment, a distance of fifteen feet Though thrown lrom the carriage in this unceremonious manner. Mr. Howe had the pre.-ence of mind to jump upon the horses as they lay tangled in the harness, and thus held them down till assistance came and relieved him. Airs Howe and child happened so to strike tlie ground in this fearful leap so ns not materially to injure them ; hut the car riage looks as though it might have been in the conflict before Richmond, when McClellan "changed hi bae" few yeai sago.

About 25 years ago three brothers attended the district school at (he old brick school house in Browni.igton, named Henry P., James W. and Win, B. Strong. They were sons of E. Gridley Strong, a prominent man in church and society, and one ot the members of tl e old linn of Setwart fc Strong. These thiee brother were all good scholars, and beloved by their schoolmates. Mr. Strong moved to Irasburgh in 1S48, thenceto Montpelior, and in 1851 to the Vest. Those three boys and are now in the prime of man hood, and among the vanguard of that great army which New England has cut out. Henry is physician in the city ot Beloit, Wis. He has been mayor oi Melon i:r the past four years, and is a prominent and inllueelial man. James is a grad uate of Beloit college and of union Theological Seminary, and is now tlie beloved pastor of the Plymouth church, Faribault, Minn., a man of deep and fervent piety, and of great talent and intluence as a minister. He had for a long lime a serious trouble with his eyes ho kept using his mind, and final ly surmounting every oustaeie no stands to-day one of the best ministers in the northwest. While on a visit at the East last summer he had a call to the church in Natick, Mass., the home of Senator Wilson, but he prefercd the more en terprising West.

Yesterday Henry Ro berU and Henry Roberts Jr., lather and ton', of Wc (Held, came to this village, got pretty drunk and created consider able disturbance in the street by their attempt to light with each other and with outsiders. Towards night they started in tho direction of home, and near the Congregational church, the father thought to chastise his son per haps for being the drunkest, and tney accordingly had an earnest set to. Unluckily for their enjoyment "Silas appeared, arrested both, and for want of a more convenient lock up gnvc them lodging in a lreight car, this morning they were brought hetorc Justice Ser gent and lined each S5,00 and costs, the whole amounting to$20,lfl. A neighbor na hi their lines and promising never to get drunk again, they departed soLerer and wiper. On being asucd where t:iey got their liquor, they said they brought a pint from home, and a Frenchman tivated them here and after that they were too drunk to know whether they procured any here or not.
