THE BURLIN&T QIST. VT., FREE PRESS, FRIDAY MORNING-, NOVEMBER 29. 1878.
BURLINGTON, FRIDAY, NOV. 29, 167S, rrnusnsD bv TJie Free Vress Association U. U. BKK11CT. Editor. T?ms 33.00 a year, tlwiri In !. nee. Tns Washington correspondents report that the ultra silver men id Confess will immediately upon the assembling of that body, make determined onslaught on tbi national bank, chiefly on account of their alleged discrimination against silver, thus defeating the purpose of the silver bill. It iss-iid that the movement will take toe form of a resolution against Federal manage ment ot the banks and in lavor of the sub stitution of currency notes to be issued di rectly by the United States. Tub great dairy fair to be held in the American Institute building. New York city, commencing December 2d, promi-cs to hz a very remarkable exhibition. The prizes aggregate six thousand dollars. The entries of butter and cbeee, of over two bun dred pounds each, number nearly a thousand, and of single packages ten thousand, inclui in many from abroad. The exhibition of bloodel cattle will comprise two hundred head of the best stock in the country. There will be a full-sized creamery and cheese factory in operation, where the process of manufactur ing butter and cheese wi'I be shown, from the reception of the milk to its readiness for cunsumi ticn. It will ue from four hun dred to five hundred gallons of uiULatd about thirty callons of cream, daily. The merit-, of the different imjrovements in dairy iiupitincots will thus be practically tested in cotx-petition with each other. TnEtfhe of Iliilroad Commi-sMoner in Vermont is as nearly a "incure as any mlaried (Geo in the State. It would long ag'i bavebem abolished, if itcot the State aayllurg directly. But the salary of $G"0 attached to the ifficc is paid hj the railroad companies who are content to pay the same as long as the State institute nothing more irkomcto them in the waj of State supervis ion of the road-, than the mild and inoffensive rule of the Commissioner. The road 4 till the O lumw-ioncr nothing about their af fairs that they are not perfectly willing to go into print, and they regard his sugges tions when icricctly convenient. He makes a report which the State prints at consider able expense, but which probably not one in ten of the members of the Legislature take-' the trouble to read, and which not one in a thousand of the citizens of the State ever hears of. The arrangement, as we have of ten aid, is simply one requiring the roads to give a pension of $&00 a year and free paa-e. to ome clever man or other. Yet over this t fiicc the entire Legislature spent half a day in balloting, on Thursday, after a canvass extending from the opening of the scion. The time so spent wis greatly needed for more important business. The oSce costs the State a great deal more than it ! worth. Is it not about time that it was abolished? Having elected a Commissioner, it may be well to continue the office for one year. If then it should ccae to exist, who could complain Tdeke was something of a content, wc Lear, over the cottlrmations of the Gover nor appointments for Directors of the Sfatc Tri-on and Workhouse ; but we doubt cot that they will commend them selves in practice. It was well, of course, not to make a partisan board, and the selec tion of a Democrat & competent and trusty as Mr. Bingham, will be generally approved. Mr. Simons of Rutland, as one of the Com missioners fur the erection of the State Work house, has given much attention to that in stitution, and bis experience and excellent judgment will be of high value in the board. Of Mr. Parker, of Hartford, we know less; but he is commended by those who know him, as a methodical anl successful business manager, and every nay fitted fur the duties of the office. For Superintendent of the Prison, Gov ernor Proctor has gone outside of our State , and appointed Wendell P. Rice, of Thomas ton, Maine. The Montpelier Journal sajs . MMr. Rice is the son of Warden Rice, of the The Close of the Sea-Jon. Once in two years tho Legislature gives the State caasefor genuine thankfulness, on Thanksgiving Day, by a final adjournment. The gratification and gratitude will be a lit tle greater than usual, this year. Rarely has a Legislature dispersed with less to show m justification of its eight weeks' session. The House was early pronounced by all intelligent observers one ot the weakest on record, and it kept its character to the end. With one or two men of commanding ability, and a few of fair judgment and experience, the great mass were wholly unqualified, by character, capacity or familiarity with public affairs, to legislate for our Commonwealth. Thebes ate has been a much better body, and has saved the State from not a few of the follies and crudities which tho lower House would have inflicted on the community; but, as a whol1, the Legislature of 1878 ha- been a penny wise and pound foolib body. A pop ular assembly of seventy-five such men as could easily have been selected in the State, with a Senate of the present size, could and would have done all that was needed, this year, in the way of changes of and additions t3 the statutes, and transacted all the neces sary business of the Legislature, in three or f.ur weeks with fuller deliberation and far wiser and more valuable results, and at a quarter of the cost to the State Treasury Of the over sn hundred bills introduced in the two Houses, but a small fraction bare become laws, or deserved to become such, ibout twenty-five bills of public importance became laws. Among these wer acts re instating the State Kinking System in the event ot a repeal of the National Bank law by Congress : taxinir Savings Banks one half of one per cent on their total deports, in lieu of taxing individual deposits ; regu lating the Savings Banks and Trust Com panies , several acts in relation to the Insane Asjlum ; but none providing for a new asylum or for any essential change in the ex isting system of providing for the insane poor, for the Revision of the Statutes; to encourage references in place of jury trials, by proud ing that the State may piy the fees of referees over and above $C ; consolidating the control of the State Prison and Work house in a single Board of three Trustees appointed by the Governor; authorizing chat tel mortgage ; authorizing the Governor to employ legal counsel in certain civil cases ; general act authorizing religious societies to di-posc of their property; perfecting the Workhouse law , act providing for town uniformity of text books in the public schools ; and extending the Normal School. Appropriations were voted of $10,000 for addition to the Reform School , of $7,000 for addition to the State Prison ; and of 10,000 for the Workhouse. The salaries of State officers have been cut down about two hundred dollars apiece. The Board of Agriculture has been practically abolished, and its duties transferred to a single "Super intendent of Agriculture. The inlvcnry law of 1S70, stands unchanged. To some of the omissions of the I-cgMaturc we shrJl allude hereafter. Tde tender to the British government of the i5,oOO,000 fisheries award, by our Gov ernment, was accompanied by a sharp letter from MinMcr Welch to the Earl of Salis burv. Pursuant to the views of Secretary Evarts Mr. Welch formally gave notice that the pa j men t is not to be regarded as an ac knowledgment of the justice of the award, or to be considered as measuring the value of the fishing privileges accorded to citizens of the United States in British waters. His letter is, in short, a protest, intended as a basis of negotiations when the fisheries ques tion shall again be opened, as it will be some five years hence. State Prison in that State. He is about twenty-seven years oi age, and has been connected with that institution from hi early youth. Governor Conner, of that State, a former Vermontcr, writes in the highest terms of his ability, endorsed in the mot flattering terms by all the more respynsiblc tfficers of the prison." I tdcr the new management, and relieved from over-crowding by the ojening of the Workhouse, we trust the pri-on will be con ducted, hereafter, in a wav to obviate all jj-t complaint. For centuries there have been various the ories corcerning the fato of the ten lost tribes of Israel. &jme have assumed that our America Indians came from that totk, another suggestion is that the Afgbans are dc-(cadpnts of the mi-sing l-raclites. There is an orgnnizitioa in Brooklyn, known a 'The Li-t I-rael IdtLtiCcation Society,' which was formed to di-cminate the pro positi m that the Anglo-Saxon race is de- sccnird from the lost ten tribes of I-rael. He ll r ip UndTiA New York, holds to neither of tlcc suggestion-, however. It ays The truth about the ten tribes i-, prob ably, that they went into oaptitity, where tney were almost c xtrrnimatcd by hardship and cruelty. lUIu-m? to sivc un their re ligion, they were tortured to death by every spcries n! barbarity, and at last welcomed a ho-pi tabic grave in heathen lands. A few scattered. remnants escaped, and afterwards turnei up in India, in 1'erwa, in c-tcrn China, on the coasts of Africa and in still more remote region, without tribal ganizAtioo, and, as wc have said cl-ewhere, the tribal link was largely lost with tho monarchy, but clwa) adhering clu'-cly to the religion ul thtir fathers. They were fugitives hut r.cver renegades. They stood, and stand to-day, on the same footing as th rest of I-rad stongly attached to the re ligion oi mcir lathers, but in all else good citizens ol the land in which they live. That they were lo-tM seems to us as much a fic tion as tie stories of their bciDg '-found." A itRiois rasx was that of Michael Mur phy, of New York, whj, after an exceeding ly narrow escape fron the gallows, and after two year-. imprisonment in Sing -Sng, ha-t jut been p-ardoccd, and is now a free man. The facts in the ca-e arc as follows On the night of April 1'J, 1871, a woman of tie classical namcof Matilda Hujus was shot and killei at her residence in Rockland county. Robert ( -amble, with whom it is said she lived in criminal intimary, was seriously wounle. Suspicion was directed toward Michael and Thomas Murphy, of Huoson fjty, N J-,anl they were arrested. Tnc oaly reason sCcms t have been that Gamble bad married their sister, who alter two vears time died suJJci.lv, hating oecn joi-onca, u was surmi-cJ. The Murphy contested in rourt the pos session of their dtcea-cd si-tcrs prop erty by Gj!iib!e anJ Mr. Hujus. Gamble turned the table by wearing a wtb of su-pi- eion around trc brothers, and Michael w convicted of the murder in the fall of 1874, and sent tcid tj I hung December 1 1, tbt year. The general term reaffirmed thffjse n tenw after a stay. For the second time the death sentence was lassed, after an unavail ing rest rt to the court or ar peals, but, on newly discovered testimony. Gov. Tilden commuted the enajty to one of imprfsoL ment for life. Thii was in May 187G. h now clearly appears that Murphy U inno cent of the crime charged, and his foot is once more upon his native heath. Gamble died a beggar in Brooklyn ; and D, O. Ham mond.an important witness against Murphj, committed suicide a clear case of retri builTC juiticej some plight say, j Tiioicu the Legislature showed the char actcristics that must be expected as long as five out of every six representatives arc chosen for considerations other than those of special fitness to act as legislators, and as long as the towns, as a rule, refuse to give even to capable and worthy representatives the benefits of experience, there are some things to be said in praise of the Legislature of '7?. If it wasted much public time in dawdling and profitless debate ; if it failed tj respond to some clear demands of the public ; if it did no great amount of good, t at Ieast did little harm. Judged by its work it was, on the whole, a conservative Lcgi-lature. It was saved from follies not a few, sometimes by the efforts of its clearer headed members, sometimes by the somewhat unusual friction between the House and Senate, and quite as often by the common sense and sound practical judgment of the Gjvcrnor. Governor Proctor early won the confidence of all discerning men in the two Houses He kept a close watch on the busi ness of the session ; and not a few of the re considerations and recall ings and changes of bills, i0 order to cure palpable defects which had escaped notice, were due to quiet sug gestions from the Governor. Governor Proctor Las been hounded with much more than ordinarily bitter malice by a portion of the State Press a portion, it is true, where ill-will is a compliment to any man who gains it but be stands remarkably i well with judicious men of all parties who J bare watched his course, and no recent Governor his better vindicated the wisdom of the choice which placed him in his cflice.

CoiuDii--toLer Rium states that it is arc markai.le fact that while the authorities of the Southern Stites arc ready to proceed vigorously against the revenue officers who commit iffeuces against the State laws, no hand is rai-i-d to punish crimes of the most outrttgeous character against the per sons of United States officials. Between twcnt3-five and thirty revenue officers have been murdered or wounded in the discharge of their duly in the Smthern States during the la-t two jiars.

The llnald's London despatch says the de cision to summon the British Parliament is the res i: It of a row in the cabinet.

Ibis is prohaoiv true, let 11 occurs to us that tho newspaper which at tempts to criticise an address which it quotes erroneously, mibt justly be suspect ed of acting from jealously or spite. Montpelier Journal, In acquittinj u of any intentional per version of President Hulbeu'-s adiresa, the Journal, as we take it, withdraws its chame cf low trickery" brought aaiust us, in this matte:. Hut we deny that there has been any perversion, intentional or un intentional, of President Ilulberialanguge or meaning. The Journal originally assert ei that the omission of the comma after frivolity "changed entirely the grammati cal construction of tho sentence." Wo challenged the Journal to point out any particular in which tbe construction was changed. It could nat do so. Njw it falls back on tbe as-crtion that the omi-esion "changes the sense. This we deny. Tho grammatical construc tion and the sense remain the same with or without the comma; and whether it is placid alter ,cstimatbor after ''frivolity. 10 either ca-e, "idle" modifies 'frivolity." 11 it modiGjd "college" wemi;ht transpose tho part-t, without injuring tbesen-c, thus : "In tbe popular estimate it, degrades tho college idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean, into a frivolity.' Did President Hulbert mean that? I- it not plain that ho meant that it degrades tbe college into an idle frivolity idle as a painted ship, etc 7 liy any charitable judgment, that must be taken to be what ho moant to say, though it leaves him open to the charge of absurdly mi-using the quotation for the idleness of a frivolity U quite a different thing from the idleness of a b: calmed ship. Wo do nut ad vance our own uLsuppported opin ion as autboritativo on the point hero at hsue. After we had been charg ed with an alteration of the punctuation which wrought an ''entire change of the grammatical construction, and a change ol sense to nonsense, we submitted tho sen tences as originally published by tbe au thor, and a quoted, to several learned gram marians outside of Burlington, as well as to so mo in this city. One alone (who had probably seen the Journal's remarks above quoted) expressed tbe opinion that the au thor probably meant "collego idle," though, he adds he (tho author) did not say so We quote from this opinion : "1 suppose the author means tbe college idle, etc. ; but it seems to me he docs not say o. I tbink the mcst natural way, as tbe sentence is written, is to haye 'idle ; modify "frtvolitv in either case stated The whole sentence is badly constructed, in my opinion. The opinions of all the others are aptly summarized in tho folhwin?, from one of them: "Allow mo to say that I think tbe struct ure of the sentence submitted by you, shows that somebody is it deed deficient of a common school education. As I under stand the author, there should bo no comma alter tbe word frivolity; but tho use ot it make no ditiercncc in the trammatiai con struction ot the sentence. In either cae the word tale modifies frtrohtv. and, as I ce. can modify only that." Borne of our readers may think we are making a good deal of a small matter. But wo do not consider it such a light matter to b? charged by a respectable con tempoiary with intentional mis-quota-tions, and low trickery. Pres. HulOertV address was sent to p", in a printed pam phlet, for notice and review, like other pub lications. It was open to fair entmibS, as to matter and stylo. We ventured to re mark that college presidents should set us better examples of Knglish composition, than tho sentence quoted. This mild sug gestion wai magnified by the Journal into assault on President Hulbert, and the unintentional and absolutely immaterial shifting of a comma was characterized as a Mow trick." etc. Tho Springfield Hepubli at took up the matter, and, accepting as truthful the JotrnaV s misstatement", io- Btanceu the supposed case of intentional and malicious misquotation as an evidence of unworthy rivalry between Middlebury College and the University of Vermont! a suggestion which makts it proper to say that no one connected with tho Board of Instruction of tho University, directly or in directly, prompted our criticism, or bad anything to do with it. We plead guilty to no assault un Presi dent Hulbert, to no pervcrjGD of bis word- or meaning, and to no " jealousy or spite.'' We simply say, as one of tbe mot nervous writers among the ministers of Vermont says in a late communication to tbe Chronicle, that "it i a sin to mur der the Kmg'f Engli-b." When thosa who should be our guides and teach&rs set us examples of palpably vicious style, we hic a right to call attention to them ; and we shall not bo deterred from doing so, by fat imputation ed unworthy motives. W should not have tallrj attention to thi specimen of President Hulbert' fogIi bojveter, if it had been but one, or but ono of a dczen, badly constructed and faulty sentences in his addre-s. We repeat that our college presidents should give us exam pics of belter Koglish; and if they haye no better defence for their blunders than the Journal Las extended to President II ol bert, it would bo quite as well to let them g undetenaeu.

Mr Martin of L judonderr) (Mr Poland of bt Johns bury being in tbe chair), move I that tbe House recede Irom tUeir vote re using to c incur in tbe Sanate proposals ot amendment to 11 301, hung the member from Wheelock, stooi the brunt of the fiiht In behalf of him-elf ani fellow trustees ot the Keform School. He certain ly made it clear to unprejudiced liiteners that the trustees bad prored themselTts dis creet, booest, and as economical &3 the con dition ot their charge would admit of. I might modify the statement abjve made, that no specific charges bad been made, that bjys were sometime-! onfiaei too long in the Reform School. Senator Battel named one or two instance! which had come with in his observation, where certain boys were not released by the Superintendent when tbeir friends thought they o right to be. The Stnate io U-i executive session were not compelled to keep their doors clo.-ed for a very long time in considering tbe appoint ments recommended by the Governor, bo tar as there was any strife, 1 und:r-tand( it was upon the question of retaining Cyrus M S;iauldine, E-q., as one of the directors of tbe State's prison. The bill providing a way for tho critics of the State Agricultural College to investi gate the f-atne by petition to tbe Sjpreme Court passed the Senate, to-day. The pro vMon that the fund may be locked up, pend ing the inquiry, was very -ensibly stricken out. There was a very lively anJ somewhat heated di-cuion in the Senate, Saturday, over tho bill to change the name tf the town of Vershire to Ely. When a vote was reached the bill passed easily enough. Mr. "Ely be (ioddard," as the boys call bim, was present during the discussion, an inter ested spectator. This much-adverti-ed young mac is an amiable fellow, but he ought to pray Heaven that tbe reporters should give bim a rest. There has been more lobbying and log rolling upon tbe bill to prohibit seine fish ing in Lake Champlain than upon any other d dries the i-eion. The first bill was pass id and signed by the Governor. The ene mies ul tbe bill thought tbe other side had been guilty of barp practice in getting the bill so prcmptly signed bj the Governor, k the House pas-ei an act repealing the first bill. Ibere was a load LuZZog in thi cor ridors during tbe debate. Ooe of the mo-t ensible dt-cuions; of the session was the one in the Secate, this afternoon, on the bill in relation to the Ke form School, Senators Dillingham, Belden, Witter", Deane, Ormsbee, Ballard, and in fact, about all the speaking uator", par ticipating in it. Senator Munoa made his be--t speech of the session, to-day, iu opposition to tbe bill to create the cfEce of State Superintendent of Agriculture. Senator Belden took up the cudgel in good form on the other fide. In my judgment, tbe Senator from Cale donia has been ing in wait for some time ta cro"s sticks with Ihe Senator from Bennington, Senator Mead opposed tbe bill although Senator Belden had indicated that be (Mead) would be a good maa to elect to tbe office. The Senators all around seemed to think to-day would be the last chance for a ?ceech, and so all did themselves "proud. R. TOC CLOSING HOURS OF TB1C SESIOX. MoNTPaLiza, Njv. 273 a. m. To tbe Kditor of the Fres Tress anl Times i Th) I1juo is now (at 3 o'clock in the morning) endeavoring to get together a quorum in order to go on with its business ; bat the members have evidently bad enough legislating and are not easily found. In tbe Senate they aro doing good work, and notwithstanding tbe litenexs of the hour so mo sharp debating is going on and the numerous bills jet to be acted upon ard being dipo-ed of rapidly and carefully. With the exception of an half hour's recess at midnight for needed refreshment, there has been no lull in the Sin ate Chamber since early last evening. About the only notable incident in the proceedings has been the sparring over the bill for commuting the death sentence ot Ata Magoon, between Senators Ballard and Ormsbee, which was protracted and rather acrid. The House has cot observed the same decorum. All went smoothly till tbe delay of business in the Senate necessitated a re cess, which was followed by the usual MOCK SESSION. Tbe first move was to place tn the chair Mr. Eaton, ot Danville, whoe aspect, when placed wrong end up in th; scat of honor by the committee appointed to conduct him tiither. made painfully apparent the truth of Dean Swift's a-ertion that man is a forked animal.' The a fore-aid animal soon recovered bis equilibrium of mind and body, however, and his ready mind aod tongue did excellent service. It mu-t be admitted that exceeding fatuity chit fly characterized the wit of tbe honor able body, though some capital hits were made as in mofinsr a vote of thank" to the clock in the hall for the creditable manner in which it had performed its duties during the tension, and the bill placing stringent regulations upon the production of eggs by "hen-, geese, duck", turkey and guinea-hens." After Waterman of John-Kin and Brown uf Bsnsjn bad suc cessively hd charge cf this inanity more serious affairs happily Jem an Jed attention, and tho farce was brought to a close before the fun had proceeded too far. Among the noticeable features of the closing hours were tbe ire-entau'oDs to Speaker Martin and Clerk Newell; to the first ol a valuable watcb aod some silver ware; to the second a splendid tea set of silver and goll: both gentlemen returned thanks for tbe gilt tn graceful speeches. Lets plea-ant to record is tbe spirit shown by each ot the ta-o bodies in the unwilling ness displayed to concede to the views of the other on important measure-. This ob stinacy is bo new development, but has been prevalent in both branches throughout the session. Bat this with other things, is now about ended, and tbe two branched will bo sure to concur in delighting them- ielvss and their con-tituents by di-psring at 10:30 this forenoon.

MoMPELiss, Nov. 5, 1S7S. To the t'ditcr o'. the tree Tress aod lims. Sinco my la-t letter, much of tho inipor tant business of tho c"itn has been dis posed of. 'Ibe act ol approprittion for im provements of tho Kttorm School met with much cppoMtion in tho", llcu-e, as was ex pected. The bill passed a(t?r a struggle, and the sum ol $10,100 was appropriited for the iuiproTemcnts rLCommendcd by tbe committee and tho truitee-. The opposi tion to the bill aro-10 mainly from the pre valent notion that there may bo boys con fined in the choolwhu out; lit tn be at tart,. Sj far as I know, n. facts were brought out to justify tho suspicion that the number of bojs in the school is too Urge, but the suspicion prevail- n;Terthele-s. KigLtiy or wrongly, it always will prevail h long a? tbe law remains -a hich provider for a term of confinement limited odIv by the tcajjrity of the offender or bis reformation. The point of time when the boy uny be consid ered as rclormcd is a little difficult for the riistefs determine. In the debate, tho trustees the Ueform S-'hool were sub jected to unjust insinuations. No specific oharges of mi-msnagemcnt were made, but there were uncomfortable bints and -ug- gestions without number. Mr. Holers, the Licut.-Gjv. Colton has made a clear headed and digntfed presiding officer, and our Senators universally express a hearty iking for bim. At toe clo-e of the eion in the Sjcate, Lient.-Gjv. Colton made tbe fallowing re- marki : The closing hour-- of tbe se 'ion are rawing near ; our associations as co-Iabor- crs fur tho puMic weal are about to ter minate, and we shall soon be separated and on the way to our homas where wo sincerely hope and trust you will with your families and friend enjoy tbi- week's day of thanks giving with more than n-ual cheertu1nes and pleasure, and with hearts more grateful to the Giver of all blessings for the boun teous rtpasts which are being preparedly kind friends for your special enjoyment. Memory calls to mind tho-e annual festivi ties of the past, and pictures tho-e in the fu ture as days of pleasure, w hen we can cast a-iide the cares of bunine-s and attend to tho social realities ol those festive ocja-ions The prc-ent se-wion of tbe Senate can not be characterized as one in which the mem bers endeavored to display rhetorical nour ishes of oratory for the purpose ot creating popular admiration but as a session In which all questions have received candid and just consideration. It errors have been committed in the deci-un of questions which have been brought before you, tbey have been tbue of the head and not of the heart. It has been a source of great pleaiure to witness that it was honesty of purpose which dictated the course ot every Senator upon all questions which hxo cau-ed a difference ol opinion. We feel gratelul to every Senator and officer uf tbe S;natj tor t!ia kind con-Uera-tion with which we hare bjen trotted dar ing this legislative term, ani shall sUays prize the testimonial you have o generous ly pre-ented to us as a H,uvenir from the kindft of fnecd."
