" Retolved, That the democrats of Wash ington county will give hearty support to all demoeratlc state and county nominees." Every one now believed that the so-called speeches wero made and that the business of thc convcntion was transacted. But no, John Senter hadn'l had the pleasure of bearing htmself make a ipeech, so he intro duced an impnrtaut resolution on ballot re form, moved that it be adopted, seeondeil the motlon, and made a long spcech in sup port of tho same. This resolution was im- portant, becanse thc conventlon had adopted tht; satuc resolution in adopting the resolu tions of the stato conventlon. T. J. Boyn- ton, Bsq., supported Mr. Bester's resolution In a pleasing but not very subslantial spcech. Thc resolution, which was adopted, was as follows. " Retolvtd, That we, the ilemocrats of Washington county, in OOBVeBtton assetn hled, are empbatically in favoi of tbe enact mcnt of a ballot reform law by our next legislature, which shall seeure to every voter in thc state a secret ballot, that he may give his suffrage w ithout fear or favor, according to his conscience." At this poiut thc convcntion adjourned, proud of its day's work and oonlident that its nomlnee for judge of probate would ho elected. We forgot to mention that Hiram Atkins was present aud seemcd inolined to let the boys run the conveutiou, evidently having not fully recOVered from the set-back which ho received in the last democratic stAto convcntion. Greene The ChrUtian f.cmler, in its issue of the 7th Instant, contained thc foi iow ing reference to thc death of Mrs. Milton Greene, a lady whose family is known to many readers of the Watchman: "The deatii of Mrs. Milton Greene of Stockbridge, Vt., which occurred on Friday, .Tuly '.'3, was as sad as it was unexpeoted to her family. Only the Sunday before she attended chureh. Her funeral was held in her home, the fol lowlng Sunday, in the prcscnce of a large number of relatives aud neigbbors. Her marrled llfeextended over a period of forty four years. Her hushaud, who survives her, has thc comfort which comcs from the memory of a companlonihlp which has made life rich in its best experiences aud from the faith which looks on to a happy future. She had ten childreu, nine of whom grew to manhood aml womanhood. Eight of them are still living, and all were present at the funeral, which was attended by Rev. S. A. Parker, who had known her twcnty-tive years. Seldom do wo see such a family gatberlng six sons and two daughters all stamped with the physical strength and cnergy, thc moral and spiritual ipialities which were so doininant in their lnother, wbom tbey so deeply mourn. Two of her sons arc well-knowu Univcrsalist clergy men Kev. It. A. Grecnc of Lowell, Mass., and Kev. L, L. Greene of Waketicld, Mass. Two of tbem are loading physicians of thc places where tbey live Ii, M. Greene, M.D., of Bethel, Vt., and O. D. Greene, M.D., of Warren, Vt. She was a kimi mother and loved her childreu wisely, for she gave them the best opportunity she eould for their Intellectual cultiire, and imnressed her own religious faith on them all. In sending the notioe of their inarriagc to the paper, February 24, 1848, the ofbclatlng clergyman wrote thcse words: ' lustead of the bridal loaf, I send you thc name of Brother Greene as a suhscriber to the Watchman.' lu the inarriagc notioe the editor said: ' We wish that coniile a lona and hannv life.' When Raymond and Mrs. j read in the light of these forty-four years, this wish has heen fullilled. Mrs. Greeue was sixty-seven years of age at her death.
