We print elsewhere a call, numerously signer!
by the lea-ting dairymen of tbe State, for a con
vention to be held at .Montielier an the 27th
iast., to organise a dairymen's association. To
those of our readers conversant with the work
ings of like institutions in New York, Ohio,Wis-
eoasin and elsewhere, we Deed not otter a word
of entreaty to persuale them to attend in a nuts
tot to the many who have heretofore plodded on
we desire to say a word.
Vermont has an established reputation as
dairy State, and to him who reads the eigne of
the times, it is evident, part a doubt, that this
must ever be her lea ling interest. On tbe other
hand. It is equally evident that she ia not main
taining her relative position among the da:ry
States of the Union. We would not insinuate
that we arc not making as giod batter as ever
before, and perhaps as much of it from a oow
but wc are not making that progress that is being
made elsewere, and it behooves us to tee to
that our laurels are not loet by our indilference-
There cannot be any good reason
Vermont hotter and cheese should net brio
tbe hicbest prices in all the markets of
the world, and perhaps it is too generally
believed that it docs, but there is indubit
able evidence that such is not the ease. There
ctonot 1 any good reason why one man should
be abie to sell his cheese for 30 cents a pound
whHe his neighbors are getting only li cents
yet su;h is the ease. There cannot be any good
reason why one man's cuws should make an
average of only 300 pounds of cbeee to the oow.
while another's make 400, jet soon is the esse.
Again, there cannot be any good reason why it
should take three acres of good land to cirry one
man's cows, while another's are carried even
better on one acre and a half. There cannot be
any good reason for keeping cows that require
two tons and a half of by from fall to spring.
whBe equally productiie cows, more judiciously
selected and tred, may be wintered on a ton and
three quarters, and even leas, of tie same hay,
It is tbe legitimate province of the Dairy
man's Association to investigate all these and
several other relative subjects, and to spread the
results of such investigations before the people
fsr their information. We are aware that there
are some few men so exceedingly conoeitcl, as
tc believe that their wises can make as good
butter and cheese as it is possible to make, and
that tbe end of improvement in this direction
has been reached; but the most of men still be
lieve that they may yet learn something, and to
sueh tbe present it is believed is a golden op
We cannot but hope that the attendance of
dairymen at Moatpelier next Wednesday will be
s'jeh in point of numbers, as to haprees tbe en
tire community with the .fact, that they are
wholly in earnest to seek and adopt every im.
provement that promises to ad ranee their per
sonilinterests and those of the State at large.

Governor Washburn's first message has the
merits of due dignity, brevity, and direct and
forcible presentation of important information
acl valuable suggtiens. Its exhibit of the
State finances a ill command the attention of the
IjtisUture; its recommendations of changes in
the school laws and in the law regukting tbe
rate of interest, bring up important subjects for
diecuion and action; its suggestions of tbe pro
priety of legislation for the development of the
material resources of the State, and of uVe impor
tance of regard to economy in expenditures; and
its presentation cf the crying evil of frequent
ehaages of the Statutes, deserve the careful heed
of our legislators. The Governor makee no allu
sion to the recent action of tbe Council of Cen
sors. I lis hearty endorsement of the Fifteenth
Ameadment will have a prompt and hearty re
sponse from the General Assembly. Wc com

An important contribution lai lately been
made to what is nuw called, fcr brevity, tie
Barlingamo-Browrie controversy. It w a
series of " Notes on Chinese) Matters," by
Mr. Hubert Uart.with comment on the same
by J. Ross UrowTic. late United States Min
ister to China. The whole occur.'18" ISe
in the California par. ' ruUifbed bJ

time been the rauit. AVe 'P1 f
Mr. Hart's " notes ' to day, reserving a con
sideration ol Mr. Uronce'a comments there
on till eotnc future time. Presuming that
our readers are, as we ourselves were, igno
rant even of the distance of Mr. Kobcit
Hart, wc will first explain his connection
with tbe question. Mr. Hart is an hngltu-
man, was formerly attached tu the British
Lczntion at Peking, but lor several Tears lias
been Intor General of Maritime Cus
toms for the Chinese government. He en
joys the full coE6dcH-c of the Itnterial v
crnment, and was very active and influential
in organizing the BurliDgame Embassy.
Long residence at Peking enables hint to
speak nndertandinsJj, while thchigh esteem
in which be is held by the Chinese Govern
ment give bis words almost tbe weight of
oEcinl authority. But to the notes.
Mr. Hart slates, that tbe ilea of an Em
bassy to the West was prcf-cd by him upon
the Chinese authorities long before Mr. Bur
lingame was finally dUjatched. Tbe object
of the Mission, ' understood it at tbe
time, was to cultivnt - and conserve friendly
relatioiw by explaining to each of the Treaty
Powers tbe many difficulties that C'inna i-an-not
fail to experience m attempting to change
existing rondltkoa or to introduce novel
ties ; to bespeaV forbearance, and preent,
in to far as vjossible, any resort to hostile
pressure t) wring front China concesninns for
which the (iimrnsBent did not as yet feel it
self ready, and to prepare the way gesterslly
tor tbe day when China should not merely
bear the words of foreign representatives in
Peking, but should be able to address etch
Government in its own Capital through a
resident Chinese mediant. Jlr. Hart en
forces particularly the point that the Em
bassy was not expected to cfier a wel
come to Christian civilization, but
to explain why a welcome could not be of
fered. " So far as newspaper rep . Hs go,' be
ay, "the object ol the Mission has been mis
interpreted, and tbe public haTe regarded it
as promising, on tbe part ol China, the im
mediate performance of those ery things
which China sent tbe mission to explain to
the Went are so difficult of performance.'
Tbe changes which civilmed nations so much
desire to introduce into China are dreaded
by the people and government of that coun
try. They wish to ward them off as long as pos
sible. But they fear that the time ill soon
come when Europe and America will font
their civilization upon China. With a view
to pctpooe this event s-s late as possible, the
lturlingame Embassy was dispatched on its
di; lomatic tour.
This is certainly a different view of the
case from that which prevails in this country,
and we think from the European Tiew. Mr.
Rjilingaine either misstated the objects of
his, mission. th.

We thought that be would return to the Baat
prepared to open the gates of Chinese igno
rance, pride and jealousy to tbe n&uoDaries
of W'eetem civilization. H wa even grave-
ly urged that the treaty with tlie United j
Statee was to be more liberal than any otb- j
era, aa a special mark of regard, and that
under the new regime we were to be the j
special friend and allies of China. Even
the London Times stormed at the snperior
advantage which the United States had oh- j
tained in the East by mean of Mr. Burl in- ,
game"? two-sided diidoroacy. Mr. Hartci- j
plains some of Mr. Bmlingan.es entbut-ias- '
tic reprcsentatiom- as doe to the exuberance ,
of after-dinner speeches, let it is plain
that Mr. Hart himself is convinced that if
Mr. Barlingame i not aetuaUr exeeeding
his instructions, be is acting under a very
liberal interpretation of them.
Mr. Hart's own views upon tbe prospect i
of improvement in China arc encouraging,
bat le so than those of Mr. Burliogame.
He says that every concession made to civili
cation by China it made under the iuipu'-
of fear. Tbe kxowledge which she bts
her own material weakness, leads ber to w 1-
oome tfaoee modern impnfexnents which will
render her rongeT. She wishes arsenal,
artillery and war vessels. She will admit
civilization to this extent, in order that slit
may provide hTself with the means to pre
vent a further entrance. Nevertheless Mr.
Hart holds that the deiaongtratioDS by tnt
civilized powcTh of forcible intentions wruld
defeat their own jMirpoee. The result ull
be that tne Chinese would at once drht
every foreigner out ofthe country an! re- ist
all approaches uf Western goverr.'uen. in
the other hand, a too forward jt ih a'arv p -licy
would beatoncedi-tru-tt-i '.ma Mr.
Hart, however, bold tikix i ;tp It Lt.ug
made in the East. It w plow, snd cannot le
forced. Wit conclusion are hummed up as
follows - ' Tbe beet treatment for the future
would eeem to be found in that policy which
iDfitfi that China fhall scrupulously carry
oat her obligations, written and unwritten,
to foreign powers and which leaves her to
develop internally after her own fashion ; to
i ns.it t on the firet will accelerate itnprove-
m&m in the second, but to interfere in the
cec-Hid will introduce heterogeneous questions
which are only too likely to work mischief
for tbe first.""

Jvnuite aissurance as to its policy. The corre
spondence for thi purpose was afterwards used,
with the peculiar audacity of the Erie clique, to
prove that the President wa? a partner to their
schemes ! They are averted to have tapped
the tel-,;r.iph wires and obtained the Treasury
order f r the sale of gold before it was received
by General BuUerntld. They aUo had spies in
the A &. -tan t Treasurer 'a oihee ready to convey
to them tbe earliest information of interest to
them. One of these spies was specially charged
to remain near General Butierneld to ascertain I

telegram over General ButierneU's snoulder, and
hastened to the headquarters of the Erie clique

ha 1 obtainel the tiding3 from some ether source
probably surreptitiously from the wires and
had beirun their sales in season to avert some.
but not all, of tbe eoasequenors. This is a part
of the transaction which has never been cleared
up until the Tims published this explanation.
Nobody understood why the clique began to
make their sudden sales on that eventful Friday.
Bat it is reasonable to suppote that they had
somehow obtained the substance of the Treasury
order, and hastened to cover themselves as well
as possible from the impending storm. The
mrrmtive in the Times is interesting ami intrin

Geary. however, ran considerably behind his
ticket, a circumstance -which is owing to
tertunai reasons. Tbe Ivegislature etands
about tbe (-ame a lat year; the Senate ex
actly the fame, fifteen Democrats to eighteen
Republicans, the Iluuf-e thirty-even Deuio-
craU to Hxtr-three Republican!, a Democra
tic pain of one. Tbe Republicans will there
fore have a majority of twenty-nine on joint
ball t It is proper to say that while the
Deui'KraU agree to this claK-iScation of the
Legislature, they jJaee the majority fur
Geary and the State ticket much lower than
the figures giren above. .Some of their
organs even claim the election of Packer by
a mall majority, but the Ilarrit-burgli Pa
triot, the leading Democratic paper ol the
State, admit? that he i defeated. Hon.
John Govode, Chairman of the Republican
State Central Committee, Fays that Geary's
majority will not be far from 4,000, and that
the rest of the ticket will run several thous
and ahead of thee figures.
From Ohio the returns are meagre and the
otiaiates contradictory. A light vote was
polled, and it appears that Hayes, Republi
can, is elected Governor l.y a reduced raajur
lty. A year ago the Republican State ticket
had about 17,000 majority. Some of the
Democratic papers claim the erection of Pen
dleton, but in general the leading men of
both parties put Hayes' majority at about !
5,000. No positive information as to the

chiefly owing to refusal of the Legislature in
