In tho death of I'rofessor ,1. Wcsiey Bpenoer, prlnolpal of the North field Cfraded School, a grcat shock is given to an unuaually large circle of friends. The aecond aon of Kev. aml Mrs. H. a Bpenoer, he was born in Groton, Jtlly 2. 1808, but had lived ln Montpelier three years while his father was pastor of Trlnfty church, aml four years later, while his father was pre- aldlns elder of Montpeliet dlatriot. During this latter residence here he pnrsned a course of study at the Vermont Methodist Beminary, from which he graduated with diatinctton. After a partial OOllege course he served for a year as prlnolpal of Royal ton Academy, where he ili.l excellent work and won hoata of friends. Reautnlng his course at Hoston University, he worked his way through and graduated last sutnmcr, being second in his i lass and having an al ternate appointmcnt as commencement speaker. Converted at a oamp-meeting at Northfield, he was soon licensed as a local preacber, aml lupplied one vaoatlon at, Hyde I'ark and Johnson, aml another at. Island Pond, aud was Intendlng tojoln the Vermont Conference the coming spring. I'rofeasor Bpenoer was a remarkahle yoting man aml seeiued to have before him a fu ture of great promise. He was manly, his piety was wltbOUt cant and without pre tense, but so honest and earnest that it made itself felt, by all who knew him. The few months of his preaching at Johnson were produotlve of a graoloua revlval, and it was with the greatest reluctance that the large pariub of island Pond rellngulahed bis services, last fall. He took an iuterest in whatever interested bis friends, and was neveraobappy as when doing aome one a favor. Genial, hearty and unalTected, be was the Honshino of tbe bome circle and bound all hla frlemla to bimself with hooks ofsteel. In addition to his scholarship aud social (juallties, he had good busitiesa ahili Itief , and was always lUOOeaaful in the va rioiis enterprlsea by meaus of which he wo'ked bis way through college. A col lege mate beara evideiice to tbe lilgh es tccm in which his charai ter and judgment were held by all classes, and the good sense Wblob he alwajH displayed in carrying through thc various measures be had at, heart. Tbougb he hail been at Northfield but a short titne, he had masterod the sit uation, and harmouy aml prosperity were attendiug his udininist t al ion.

He issued a warraut for the arrest of Dr. Hyde, c harging him with IntOSloaUoa, assaulling his wife, aud hrcaking Ihe peace. Hyde was arraigned before Moody, pleaded not guilty, and demanded a trial by jury. Moody refused to grant it, liued l'f yde 85 and costa, and ordered him UHprlaonad in the house of correction for ninetydays, with ten da.vs addltlonal if the Ana were not paid before the explratlon of that term.
