( )f the affair tn Barre, we are oredlbly Inlormed, aml believe it to be true, that "the good order which characteried all the exeri ises of the day was a inatter of generai reiiiark. Only one arrest was made and that at ten o'clock in the evening." A movk is being made in this village in Whloh many good people are shoWing a lively interest. It is well known that a large ntimber of children of school age are not in any school.

In the matter of school delitiipicnts, possibly a a truant offlcer as well as a reliel corps may I be required, Two reoent Items in these columns re- Bpectlng the (ortnatlon of oertain temper ance assoolatlons were somewhal connlct ing by reason of a mlsunderstandlng of the (acts on tbe part of one of our Informants. The (ollowlng, from an offlcer of the Woinans christian temperance vrorker explains the sltuation and is also in tune and a rignt splrlt. f lease allow me a fewwordsof explauatioii: I.ast week, when tbe offlcer ol the new organisation calied 'oinans( hnslian 1 euiperance orkers gave you a (eW polnts, sbe was qulte im aware that there bad been a reorganiation of the Woman's Christian Temperance I'uion in town. For several years there has been a growing dlssttlslactlon with the ac- tioii of the state aml natlonal Woman's Christian Temperance L'nion in lcading tbe Dnions Into a partlsan positlon which was orlginally not contemplated, aml this fail it oulminated iu our l'nion. It determlned to withdraw from connection with tbe state and natlonal ITnlons and didso withdraw, aml of COttrSe was obllged to drop tbe ' l'nion ' from its title, reorgantzing under the name of ' Woman's Christian Teuiper ance Workers.' Soon afterward some of the old members who wlsbed still to be aux lliary to the state assooiation, reorganlzed a Woman's Christian Temperance l'nion. There are two societies alive and well to day, with no jealousy or trouble between them, and room enough for work and OBUSe enough for work also. Any woman can choose with which sbe prefers to work, or ahe can work with both if she has strengtb enough aml is so lncllned." " A Montpelier gentleman " writes the correspondent of the Free Press, " says the wailing ol the editor of tbe Arirut, who is said to possess the Hnest pnvate wine cell in town, over the seizure of liiiuor iu Montpelier groggery, deallngout death and destructton untiltbe prudent dealers them selves encouraged the rald, as did all good citisens, remlnds bim of a demooratiG speech at Montpelier in 1880," The speak- ing bad been delayed on account of tbe rain and the OUt-Of-tOWn orators bad enjoyed tbe oomlortS of the botel until near evening, when the rain ceased and the speaking be gan with this upostrophc to rain: " God bless tbe rain. The niore rain the tnore cotn; tbe more coru the more whiskey, and the more whiskey the more democrats." , In its next issue tbe Ar;us niut PeUttOi says it " did comment upon that raid, but the edltor-in-ohiel was absent, and did not see those comments until some tlme after they appeared: bad he been at home, some of the allusions to Bheriff Barton would not bave appeared, aud tbe article otherwise modt I tied, but the generai trend of it would bave remalned as it was, The Fm Press para grapb tbat we are quoting from was more than ball ' of it devoted to au attai k upon the ilemocrai ic partv. 1 he only selzed at the tlme of the raid of which ih. j Free Press speaks was taken from a man who is and always has been a republii an.

" Another abortive llquor raid," it beads the artiide Commenclng " NolwitL- I standing several abortive attempts to dis cover by searob llquor kepi with Intejil to sell al Montpelier, there are Still people seemlngly dlsposed to be skeptical when told tbat no llquor s sold at the capital of Vermont, us was proved last Baturday." The same paper eontains a letter from C. I J, Qleason, Bsq., dated Beptember 11, in ' which Mr. Qleason says, " In the little vil lage of Montpelier thirteeu men were i locked up in jail last Saturday for being in- toxioated and dUturbing tbe public peaoe, I bappened to be there aml got the nutnber from an otlicer who kuew.

Tlie case referred to in last week's lsSUS as thetl on trial was Camp and Wife PS Town of Plainfield, This was an BCtlon In which the wife was the meritorious ouuse of the action, in that sbe bad reeeived in JurleS by reason of being thrown out of her oarrlage, tbe overturnlng resulting from an allegeil insulhciency of a certain bridge. on a blghway which the defendant town WBS bound hy law to keep in good and sufftoient repair. The facta in the case as developed by the evldettoe were about as follows: ( tn the 33d of Ootober, Mrs. Camp, who lives in the village of liarre, started to make a visit to the old bomestead, to her brother's, The brldge wbere thelnlury bappened is a short distance aoutberly from the bouse. About 22", rods sontherly frotn the bridge, ia a orossing of the Wells Biver railroad, The bridge in questlOU is a small-si.ed one run Dlng over a creek, and is OOVefed by tbe or- dinary f ourtee n-f oot ptank. Mrs. Camp and a lady companion came about to this cross ing, and heard an approaching train. They crossed tbe track in safety, and t he horse went along down towards the bridge with- out any trouble, though, as the plaintitT said, at a trot. The horse was under per fect oontrol until sbe oame to the south side of the bridge at that point, wbere, for some cause or other tbat she dld not know of, the horse seemed u, ston all at onee. Being ou the trot, be swayed over towards the east end of the brldge. Bhe thought be wonld go oiT tbe end of tbe bridge, so sbe pulled hard ou the line and the horse tttmed back On tO the bridge. The wagon Wenl ot! on the right hand side, and she and the lady with her were throwu out. The borse's leg was broken aud she was thrown upuu a pile of stones in the blghway, She was uncouscions for some COnsiderable time aml was taken to her brother's very badly bruised and burt, For a montb or more the right eye was entirely bllud, but it bas gradually grown better until sbe has recovered, though not fnllv, tbe sight of the eye. She was otherwise j bruised on her person aud limbl, and in fact the force of the blow was BUob that for a long tlme she was sore and oould searcely move, The place in the brldge olalmed to be out of repair was on the south side of the ! bridge very near tbe center of the traveted track. I)i the planking of the bridge there I r ' i i.. i. ti i.i r i.i BCCOUnl for the Injury to tbe horse aud con- sequent misbap to Mrs, Camp in no other way than that the borse's foot went in there and that broke his leg. Plaintlff Intro- ! ducedadoctoi of borses from Bt. Albans, Vt., who testilied that the borse's leg was i broken in hall a dozen places about the Sbin. It was the breaking of the borse's leg tbat made hlm oome near (alllngdown, aml veering to tbe eastward. Nohod.v in i ! the train approaohing, when the team went over the orossing. saw the BCCldent but the ; fireman, who saw the team tlp over and gave th alarm to tbe engineer, who backed QOWn and went to the assistance of the two , ladies. When the tirst person arrived, the ! horse was about twenty-live feet from tbe bridge, aml he BtOOd looking at the wagon and the people there. The horse went i away on three legs as the train backed up. He went a distance further and then turned round aml looked back agaln. Tbe 1 j horse was a valuable one, worth 8600, and ! iu oonsequenoe of tbe accident had to be i killed, li was one that Mrs. Camp bad drlven for a long time. lt was adtnittcd : that the bridge was one tbe town was bound j to keep in repair. On tbe part of the de fense it was olalmed that the bridge was iu ; good condttlonj that it was a bridge about : twelve feet and a few inclies in width over ! a small stream. After the accident some ot the autborlties went to examine the ' W i bridge, aud oould Iiml no place wbere a j horse a foot had made any mark such as inight have been expected if the horse had caugbl his foot in any iart of the planking ol tbe bridge, lt was denied that tbe in- jury was caused by any defect in tlie brldge, It was also olalmed tbat the plain- , tlff was i ot as badly injured as sbe repre Bented, though not much question waa made liut that the horse was as valuable as repre- 1 Sented. The defendant introdueed some of the irain hands who saw the team, aud the olalm made by the defemlant was that the I horse was afraiil of the cars, and started on : the run tbat in some way the accident oo curred; that it never could be explained just bow it did oCOUr. The theory of the town was that the horse in some way, on account of the speed it was runniiig, broke iis leg on the road. The case was argued (orthe plaintilT by (. H. Boyce and Mr. Bhurtlen; for thede(endanl by Mr. Hoyt aml (i. W. Wing. Tbe jury returned a verdict i for tho plaintlff for 1:777 damages and costs. A. o. Cummlns t's, Timotby Davis.
