As la well known to many of. our read era, the late Bishop Hopkins, previous to hla death, procured for the Episcopal church lit Vermont, the 100 acres of land nt Hock I'olnt, known as the Vermont Episcopal Institute tiroperty, and erected thereon an episcopal residence, which he occupied until his death. He ubo built a largo stone building for a boys' school and put It Into successful operation many yearn sluce, and in addition raised $5000 toward n fund for the erection of a school for young ladies and commenced the founda tion, when his work was suspended by his sudden death. On the nth of August, 1SS5, the late John P. Howard who had always taken much Interest in the bishop's work at Hock I'olnt bequeathed fc'JO.OOO as an endow ment for the young ladies' school at Rock I'olnt, provided suitable buildings should be erected therefor by the trustees of the Vermont Episcopal Institute, or the sum of S 10,000 bo raised within one year after his death for such buildings. Mr. Howard died Oct. 10, lbS3, and before Oct. 10, l&bO, the trustees hud raised the $40,000 as re quired. On the 12th day of May, lbS7, being the time llxed lor proving the will of Mr. Howard, Col. Cannon in behalf of the trustees of the Institute appeared before the Hon. Daniel Hollins, surrogate in and for the city and county of Xew York, with the subscription books to the fund ot S 10,000, which were approved by the sur rogate and he decided that the terms of the bill had been complied with, and therefore issued his order deeming that the executors of the estate of Mr. Howard pay over to the treasurer of the diocese of Vermont, tho sum of 20,0U0, so soon as the $40,000 should be paid over to the trus tees of the Vermont Kpiscopul Institute by the subscribers. At the annual meeting of the trustees June 13, the treasurer was directed to col lect the $40,000, which was most cheerfully aud promptly paid by the subscribers as soon as calledi upon, and the executive committee consisting of Col. Frederick K. Smith of Montpelier, Dr. tJeoruo Xlchols of Xorthlleld, Martin Deming of Arlington, George Rriggs of I5rnn don, and ICol. he G. U. Cannon and Thomas J I. Canlleld of Rurliugtou were directed to proceed nt once with the erection of the buildings. Meanwhile the executive committee had been in communication with several architects aud were prepared to lay be fore the trustees the different plans and propositions submitted, which resulted in the adoption of the plan presented by Mr. Frederick T. Camp of New York, who by the way, is a native of Hock I'olnt and one of the early graduates of the boys' school. The executive committee after a full consultation with the architect, agreed upon all the details of the plans, selected a site aud although the season was considerably advanced, authorized Mr. Canlleld to proceed forthwith to ex ecute the plaus aud erect the buildlug. He arranged with Cassius I'. Morse to take charge of the mason work and W . H. Townseud the carpenter work, witli instructions to have the building under cover before winter. The work has pro gressed rapidly aud these cenlletnen will, without doubt, be able to fill till the terms of their instructions. NKSciiirriox ok tiii: iiuiuuxo. This handsome educational edillce is 121 feet long aud 02 feet wide. It is built of stone quarried in the immediate neighbor hood, of a reddish cast resembling Mai lett's bay marble, and will be four stories in height. The style of architecture is a collegiate or academical gothic, witli steep roofs, gables, a cupola and central tower over the stair projection, treated in forms of massive basement stone walls, principal story, stone walls witli corners laid m a whiteish stone in regular bond. The ride wiiius have the storv below the roof treat ed in shinnies, and the chapel end has its gothic windows, projecting up into mis shingle work, maiglned around wlthstoi.e. The tower is arranged so that a very ex tensive and a beautiful prospect can be viewed from it lor miles in every direc tion, and it also performs the important olllce of suppoiliug aud enclosing a tuuK forthe wutersupply. Looktngut the build im ti-nm either side, the drive or lawn or lake, it will ever be taken for just what it is. ii church educational edilice. The drive will approach us north side at the level ot the second story, which is (iillwl Din nrlnclnul story, tho titst stem' having a southern exposure and being altogether out of thegiound. The looms in this lirst story are l he kitchen, laundry, servants' dornntorv. patitries.dlning room, halls, stairs, matron's room, live music practice rooms, gymnasium, janitors' room and work shop, ami coal or storage rooms. Under the llrst storv is the base ment for the heating apparatus. The principal story contains parlors, library, repetition room, hat and cloak rootn.thiee recitation rooms, school room, chapel and a suite of live rooms aud bath room ior the n.-n nf the iirincliial and ills family. The chanel Is a room extending through n height ot two stories, the second and third in the east wing and will have a chancel, oriran and seating capacity for about 100. Theioaro three btair cases, one in the centre, extending from base ment to fouith story, and one at each end of the main nart of the buildinir, one nt whlrh extends from the first to tho attic (over the fourth story), and the other 11UI11 IIIO Sl'UUim BlUlj IU j mv. third story has toilet room, hospital, teach ers' rooms, study parlors aud double and single dormitories, accommodating 21 nitidis, while the fourth storv has an ar raligemeut ot open dormitories and rooms accommodating m pupils ami turee tencii ei's. beside toilet rooms and hospital These hospitals are entirely shut oil' trom anv communication whatever with ud- iolnlmr rooms, and are served by a dumb waiter devoted to their use only, so that In case of blckuess and especially con timlotis disease, they are entirely quar.m tlned from the rest ot the building. There is also a soiled clothes nbute Which will convey from the top und all intermediate iloors to the laundry, every thing needing washing. The laundry is next to the kitchen, on tho first lloor of tho east vwnif. aud will be tfiullined With tube, stationary mangle, btove, anil a hot air dryer, inns sunpiiiying mo niuimry work, aud getting rid of undesirable sur roundintisou washlnn days.

This lutes perlccted system uses seven furnaces, in this buildmu'. and distributes Its heat. from a collecting drum, by means of iininlH brink tines, to all rooms at a height of six feet above the lloor, and exhausts i he vitiated and cool air. from tho oppo titu Hldn nf tho loom, nrelerahly under the windows, into two ventilating stacks of largo sectional area, located at the junction of the main building with the wliii-H. insurliiL'. on the coolest days, an Kiuablo temperature of 7,V all through Urn house, bv it constant and rnnld clrcil Jation of moderately wanned air. The ii, vnlnuot m-stem In connection with one of these ventilating stacks, consists in passing the foul air over tho cenieutid tienches, containing the deposits from the toilet rooms, just as It enters the ventilat ing stack and this current ot dry. hot idr di ssiccates completely and deodorizes Hits matter, so that one cleaning out per jem Is ample and this cleaning may consist i f simple lemoval or the whole can be burned, In ullu bv n lew shavings and kindlings. Thus is removed all danger lo the health ot the- pupils irom unit cueiuicu sewer gas. The wuterstiptuy win ne ooiaiueo irum tlinHiv reset voir, bv an extension ot the niiiin to the. tmiunds. and a tank of 2000 gallons capacity Is situated in the tower, which is in the centre of the ninth front, above the highest story.

For the recreation ot the Inmates there have been provided a large gymnasium In the llrst story, opening oil of which are the music rooms, so that a good lloor and convenient niuslo will render easy the ex erci-es of calisthenics accompunhd by music, or the same combination will ren der dancing easy: also a large piazza on the north side and a correspondingly irire one on the south for the jountr ladies and a small private one for the principal's family, alsooneon the south will all'ord dry outdoor promenades In all wen' hers, lias pipes will oo nun to tuny supply all necessary amount of illumina tion, although it tuny be decided to use oil lor the present.

The arraiicement of the young Indies1 rooms nartakes of the three systems now in vogue in all seminaries. Olio is the open dormitory system, a second is the system of separate dormitories for one or two aim a inird is me audition or a siuoy parlor, not used as a bedroom, but as u parlor, In common with and to open into two or more bedrooms. There is a closet attached to each bedroom. There are rooms of all these three descriptions in this institution aud by means ot this variety it will be possible to lorm a much more harmonious family, according to the tastes and ages of the individuals them selves, than If but one system was fol lowed out. The site is most beaut ful. n rocky pro montory soon after entering the grounds on whicli the building sets, is some 20 feet limber than the meadow lawn. 1000 feet wide, stretching in front and bound ed by a fringe of trees on a brow of an other descent, which curtains the hike shore so that the southern prospect overlooks the beautiful city and bay ot Hurliimton and the waters of Lake Cliamplaln for 20 miles or more, embracing at a simile glance Shelburn point, bay and village, kock uuiider, spilt hock unlit house, Quaker Smith's point, Juniper island, the Four Brothers and the village of Essex, X.

The trustees have taken great p.dus to inform themselves respecting the modern improvements in school buildings, one ol their number having visited and examined ellesiv college near lsoston, at. .Mary's Halls, Fairibault, Minn., Hryn Mnwr Uni versity near Philadelphia, thus availing themselves of tlie experience ot the ofli- cets ot those Institutions, Intending to make this building tho most complete and iierlect in nil its arrangements ot any juildinc in this country, tor the purposes tor which it is intended, viz.. the educa tion of youug'lndles.

There were present Governor Ormsbee, Gen. Win. Wells, Gen. Thos. O. Seaver, Col. W. G. Venzey and Col. Albeit Clarke. Jly their Invitation ex-Governor Proctor, Gen. W. Y. W. Hlpley, and Col. Hush O. Hawkins of New York attended mid conferred with them. Only one design was presented. The discussion resulted In a conclusion to rec ommend to the commission for the gen eral or State monument a Corinthian column, very much like the Nelson monu ment in Trafalgar square, London, only, of course, not half so large, and measures were taken lo secure a design, drawn to u scale, so that its eo.-t can lie estlmatid and its construction proposed lor at an early day. Xo definite plan was perfected for the four smaller structures, but the purpose is to have I hem less liliuilte man sevele in their conformity to classic models. The committee will meet in Urattleboro at 8 a. in., October li), the day of the Vermont olliceis' reunion. Their ureatest embarrassment In ac complishing work that will be creditable to the Slate arises from lack of adequate funds. Modest as all their designs will be, they still need at least $.1000 more than has been raised. Subscriptions, however, continue to come in. Among those not previously announced are siuooyA. it,.

Dr. X. G. Clarke, the senior for eign secretary, greatly pleased every one. He is tall, flue looking, with high and handsome forehead, whitening hair and long white beard, and read his report with lire and vigor. Dr. Smith, his colleague, is very erect, daik complexion, clean shaven, emphatic and sometimes sarcastic. Kvuugelist Pentecost' miirhty frame and dark, florid face, beetling brows and heavy moustache, and studied simplicity ot speech, have grown very familiar here. Prof. Hun is of Vale is a typeof thogood Xew England cleric, Immaculately array ed, and every feature and whisker closely ordered. Dr. Hddy is a splendid specimen of tho old school, witli rich, ruddy complexion admirably set oil by Ins abundant snowy hair and side winsKers, and bis speech was overflowing witli ready bonhomie. Dr. Hamlin's narrow face is another Xew England type. Dr. Quint's solid, stocky licuro and large head aud face are very notable any where. lo-eph Cook, the Monday lectureship, has not. changed in ins burly figure, and his broad, mobile, and every way extra-1 ordinary countenance. Itev. ,1. E. Todd looks somewhat like "toscoe Conkllng, and is consciously dra matic in nis delivery. Prof. Egbert C. Smyth, u tall, stro-igly-proportioued man, with a symmetric lace, well-balanced, hair richly silvered and full gray beard trimmed just light, has a slow, deliberate, weighty mauner ot speech. The line, conscientious face of Dr. Mc Kenzie and the striking port and manly beauty of Klchard Salter Stoirs distin guished tlie platform. A SliCKKT CONCLAVE. A Springfield despatch says : At the se cret meeting of the conservatives held in Olivet cliupel, under the.cull signed by Itev. Dr. Todd of Xew Haven, some remark able statements were made, which have leaked out. A committee which had been previously appointed reported upon vari ous matters.siich us the proposed reorgani zation of the board, it was admitted that Dr. Aldeu hud made niistukes, but the re port recommended the reappointment of all the secretaries. Various speakers fol lowed. Some objected to giving so much latitude to debate as was given last jear at Des Moines. It was claimed that the liberals occupied too much time, and that their speeches were reported in almost all the journals of tho land. Some menus should be devised whicli would prevent this at this meeting. One speaker said that he thought tlie conservatives should prepare themselves thoroughly and mon opolize the time. Our side, said he, should have to much to say that no one would want to hear any others. It was decided lo bo the sense of the meeting that all im portant votes of the board should be taken by ayes and nays. One speaker spoke of the want of unity In the administration of the a Hairs ot the prudential committee Two members wero alluded to by name as objectionable, viz., Itev. Mr. Dickinson of Lowell ami Joseph S. Hopes ot lioston. A number of those present said they should not vote for Mr. Hopes. Others said they should. One man said that President teeelye of Amheret had been a millstone about the neck of tho board of visitors atAudover. Drs. Xoble and Wlthrow proposed resolii: tions, but It was decided that the state ment ouereil by ur. Quint, endorsing the present administration of tlie board, was hiifllclent. It whs evident tbnt a very hit ter spirit existed among some of those present against those who ill He red trom them. Tho meeting was u remarkable one, and did not show harmony among these supporters ot tho board. The attendance of corporate members of the board Is larger thai) that of niiy pre vious;meetlng in its history. There wero 14 1 present. Tho largest number before this meeting was IS;). At Dps Moines there wero only 80 present. The whole number is about 'SM. The Weekly Fiskk I'liLss has been re duced lu price to one dollar, and Is now by far the cheapest weekly iu tho State.

Tlie democratic State convention indi cated two things as being as certain to occur us any known events in the future can be made certain. One is that Grove Cleveland Is to be the party's standard bearer in next year's contest, and the oth er is that a free-trade policy Is to be urged upon Congress at its next session anil is to be the leading issue in the presidential election. The tarilf plank of the State platform is essentially free trade, and it Is based on utterances by Mr. Cleveland and in recommendations by his secretaries of the treasury, Manning aud Fuircliild.
