Certain orltloUma of oertain of the late board of trustees are, we believe, iu the main unfair aud unjiist. The board, we take it, has acted as a unit. No Individual memher has run it or bossed it, aud tlie board as a uuit willshare whatever of ap plause or ceusure its course deserves. It lias, however, been agood board, and we do not discover tbat its acts tuerit any special or general condemnation; but that, on the contrary, it has maiiaged tbe affairs of the village with general efflcienoy, aml iu many respects its adiuinistration has heeu highly commendahle. Thk poatoffioe deparment is arranging for an exhlbltion at the World's Fair of photo graphs of scenes in the receipt, delivery aud carriage of mail all over the country, and Postmaster Goodenough has heen reiuested to hunt up photoa tbat would illustrate something diflicult, daugerous, uniiiue or piotureaqne." Mr. Goodenough iutends to borrow a camera aud a boy to work it, and hold up the Hardwick stage at some poiut in its devious passage. It would seeiu that "Tiin" Callahan coiuiug down Seminary Hill with his buckboard and Nanc.y Sbauks combines the reipiisite diliiculty, danger, uniqueneaa, and plotureaqueneu that the departmeut desires. In its account of the promisciious drink Ing ou tbe polo grounds during the Yale Priuceton fuot-ball gaiue at New York on Thauksgiving day, the 'nii noted that " Any number of steady whiskey and brandy drinkcrs were there who were aoouatomed to take water or coffee with their whiskey or braudy, but they found they could driuk the raw liquor in tbe open air of tbe polo grounds without any uupleasant feel iug." This statemeut will appe.il to the humor of the Moutpelierite who frequeutly slips bebind a tree, aud takes a swig at his bottle tilled with S1.2.Va-gallou " licker." "Raw liquor without any uupleasant feel iug! " Well, well. Last Friday evening, at Woman's Relief C'orps hall, a Keeley sociable wasgiven by the uon-partisan Woman's Christian Teiu perance Union, aud it was a pleasant and interesting event. The tlrst hour was spent iu social intercourse. At eight o clock about forty mambers of the Keeley Leaguecaiue iutothe hall. with keails erect and manly bearing, and the light of a new hope sparkling in their eyes. Dr. NloboU aml Munager Foster of the insti tute werealso preaent. Brief remarks were made by Rev. A. J. Hough, Rev. (i. W. Gallagber, Williaiu A. Lord, Ksq.. P. L. Lyona, Williaiu C.

Cake and coffee were served, and all went home well pleased with the evening's en tertaiument. l.yt the good workgoon' Thb exliibitloti by tbe Loudou Gaiety girls at the Opera-house, last week Tuesday eveuiug, was very "jiiu crow."

Tbe apparont slze of the OOmel OOntinaally inereased uutil last vreeV II was about tWO-thlrda the diameter of the moon.

" Can you tell me whetber the inhabitants of tbe comet you people bave heen trying to bump into pay any more for their elec trlo liglits than Montpelier, and whether the ma.vor of OotnetViUe bas sold tbe lamp poata?

The village meeting Monday eveniug was dellghtfnUy obnotio. St. Angnatine'i fair had the rigbt of way iu Capital hall until last evening, but village meeting was not thougbt of at the tiiue the hall was rented. The result was that hoth iustitutions, tail aud meeting, tried to do husiness siniul taneously, aud holh lost money. To con venienoe the people of the village, Father Snllivan agreed to have the meeting assem ble with tbe iinderstandiug that only a few minutes should be spent iu organiziug, and that a recess would be taken. The vot.crs gathered in tbe ceuter of the hall, sur- rounueii uy nootns auu iiuntiug, aud lusule ! of live minutes no one knew detiuitely " where he was at." George W. Wing, Esq , was elected "mayor." lliere was a scrap iu every ward over the election of trusiee. Ballots were or dered and taken uuder diliiculty. A con teat was made over the electiuu of assistaut englneers whicb the president deolded by "dividing" the liouse. Along toward eight o'clock Father Snllivan put in a large re monatranoe, and the meeting took a recess untll seven o'clock this eveuing. Iu the "ballots" and "divisious" referred to above tbe followiug otlicers were elected: President. Ccorge W. Wing; trustees, ward 1, Frank A. Sherburne; ward 2, Lyun B.

In respect of Siiperinteudent Roberts' care of tbe street crossings and sidewalks, il is true that so large a number of the tax payers never before enjnyed iudividually tbe comfort derived from tbe exnenditure I of tbe public monev. Tbe sidewalks have been well aml promptly cleared of snow in winter: iu summer tbe gutters have been kept clean aud wholesome aud iu raiuy weatber the crossings have been tuade pass ablo for pedestrians. Mr. Roherts has done a very large amount of work iu laying new street crossings some tweuty livo of theao ' ln pntting down nearly two miles of plauk sidewalks, iu laying t ile uuder drive ways and some :.ono feet of sewers, drawing ome 3,800 loads of tilling aud replankiug several bridges. For the expenditure iu his department the tax payers have had com forts uuder foot in fair w eatber and foul and the Itrangai Erithin our gates has observed aud praisi d the orderly oondltion of thiugs. Buperintendent Koster's report of the cou ditiou of alfatis iu the water department is highly satisfactory. The total not cost of tlie water woiks to date is 1131,188.40. During the paat year 1,767 feet of new pipe baa in Laidi maklug the iggregate length nearlv . Igbteeu miles.

Tbe totai cost of maiutenanoi has been 84,084.83, leaving a bandsome net iucouie. Appeiuied to the tnpertntendent'a report is ecoinplete list of water ratea charged cousumers. Tha report of George A.
