Benninoton, April 10 h. A. Drew of
Burlington and K. N. Blssell of Shore
ham, of the State cattle commission ro
turned homo Saturday from this county,
where they had been InvestigntliiK us to
the alleged provalenco of pleuro-pneumo-ula.
They were accoiu)anled by Dr. C. U.
Allen of ltutland, of tho State board of
health, mid Dr. J. F. Pane, of Manchester,
a veterinary surgeon. After n thorough
investigation they unuou'ico that so far
they have found no cases of plcuro pneu

ease prevalent which is bomething new
and which no one has yet been able to
Mine, Under tho circumstances tho com
mission decided to (iiarantine the towns
of Bennington and Shaftsbnry in which
tho cases were found to await the result
of their investigation. Mr. Drew of the
commission received a letter from Dr: A.
AV. Cheevcr, chairman of the Massachu
setts board, stating that the case which
was snppossd to be from this county, nnd
which led to the quarantine of the States
of Vermont and Jcw York, was not from
Bennington, but from Salem N. Y. A

sion that there were 100 cars of cattle
that had been stopped between the Cana
dian boarder and the Massachusetts line.
It is expected that the commission will
hold a conference in Burlington to-day,

to Hofoml tho Cup.
New York, April 7. ICx-Ilear-Admiral
Cemmodore J. C. Barron of the Xew
York Yacht club, was asked to-day if the
rumor that ho has purchased the sloop
Mayllowerjfrom Gen. Paine was true. lie
said: "You may say there are negotia
tions pending for the purchase of the boat
and that I shall probably buy her."
Conunodoro Barron declined to say
whether the yacht if he purchased her
was to be bought subject to her engage
ment to race with the British cutter Ar
row. From another source it was learn
ed that Commodore Barron had purchased
the sloop subject to her British engag
nient, but intends to have her back iti
time to have her enter for the race with
the British cutter Thistle in October next.
There probably will be some trial races
between Gen. Paine'M new sloop, the Mav
ilower, the Puritan, the Prlscilla and the
Atlantic in September nnd a choice will
be made by the committee from these
five yachts and the fastest selected to de
fend the cup.

Manning, tho wife of tho Secretary of tho
Treasury, Mr. Bayard, the Premier, being
a widower. A more charming and popu
lar lady never llgured in Washington olll

the blood of tho Livingstons, tho Chancel
lor of New York, who administered the
first oath of olllee to President Washing

rated in April, 1787, or lacking but !i0
days of an even century. As Marguercta
Fryer of Albany she was one of the belles
of the high-born Knickerbocker circles of
the Capital of tho Kmpire State. She
came to Washington as a bride and at
once took a leading place among tho
many captivating ladies of fashionable
life. The wife ot the new Secretary of the
Treasury, Charles S. Falrchild, while less
demonstrative in her manner, is a lady of
historic family and many social charms.
She was Miss Helen l.inckleitn of Cnze
uovla. On her father's side she is do
cended from John lilncklean, u gentle
man of means from Holland, who came to
tho United States at the beginning of the
present century as agent ot tho Holland
Land company. Mrs. Faircldld's mother
is a nieco of Horatio Seymour. She still
resides in the stately old mansion reared
by John Linckleau in tho midst of what
was formerly the Holland tract. Dupng
the past season Mrs. Falrchild took part
in social gayeties, but her quiet ways
have always given her the appearance of
tendency to recoil from too great promin
ence in fashionable follies. With Mr.
Falrchild she was a guest at the State din
ner to the Cabluet and subsequently she
was again made one of the ladies at the
State dinner to tho Diplomatic Corps. She
has always been a great favorite in the
