MoNTrELIEIs, Oct. 18. The election of
the Supreme Court judges was the Import
nut event here to-day, anil It passed oil
very quietly. The two Houses met In
joint nssembly for this purpose in the
lorenoon. Very Tew speeches were made.
In regard to the re election of Judge
Itoyce as chief judge. Mr. Marsh said the
best commendation that could be offered
In behalf of Judge Hoyce was his IS yeais
of service for the State. L'it summer,
when the judge's health was quite poor,
It was suggesta! by some of his f -lends
that if he did not recover his health ne
should not be a candidate for re election.
Hut Muce then his health had been com
pletely re-tored. .Mr. Muish had i-een the
judge personally, and was sutistled on that
score. This being the only consideration
that had been suggested, and in view ot
the present state of the judge's health he
nominated him for re-election to the high
olllce he has held with such honor to him
self and the State.
No other man being put in nomination
the vote was taken viva voce and Judge
Rojce was declared re elected to the place
of chief judge.
The several judges were put iu nomina
tion and seconded m rapid succession, and
In a routine manner, until the sixth as
sistant judge was reached. In nominat
ing the Hon. James M. Tyler for the posi
tion, Dr. Hnltou, the member from Biat
tleboro, said : Mr. President, I desire to
present for the consideration of this joint
Assembly for sixth associate justice ot the
Supreme" Court, a gentleman, who for the
past year has held the position bv appoint
ment of the late governor. There are
three things to my mind evidently neces
sary to the making of an accomplished
Judge, integrity, legal attainment, and a
mind capable of holding the scales ot jus
tice with an even well balanced hand.
Such qualities I believe exist in the Hon.
James M. Tyler of Brattleboro, whom I
have the honor and pleasure to nominate
for this olllce.
Mr. Proctor, in seconding the nomina
tion, said : "It is with pleasure I second
the nomination of James M. Tyler. Ver
mont has, and can have, no truer man, no
more deserving and trustwortuy judge,
Mr. Mann of Wilmington, and Senator
Hntterlleld also made a few brief remarks
in seconding Judge Tyler.
Not a breath of opposition has been
heard against Judge Itoyce this session,
and apart Irom the rumor of his intended
resignation, not a word has been spoken
against his re-election ; he may now feel
that whatever the past has brought forth,
it is entirely of the past, and was pntieal-
ly buried under his unanimous re-election
two years ago.
IJLALMb OF ECONOMY.
The Senate, alter having generously
parsed the approi.r.atiou bill for a Benulng'
ton jollification at some tuture date, are
experiencing qualms of economy. This
morning the matter of incieasiug the sal
aries of the adjutant and inspector-gener
al, and quartei-master general came up
as the subject of special order. It was dis
cussed almost the whole ot the forenoon,
and was Dually tabled by a vote ot 10 to
11, Some of the senators are desirous ot
asceitainlng by extmlnation themselvts
just how much woJk there is to do iu the
respective offices. The result will be
found by those who do take that trouble
to be a demoustrutlou that there is a vast
amount ot work to do in both departments
in the course of the year.
i:lmji:m in EtiriAiiox.
The educational wave that is rising is
spreading to all branches of instruction,
and some lriend ot education propose
compulsory music iu the common schools.
H. 103 wus introduced by Mr. Dole ot
Northlleld, requiring 15 minutes per day
to be devoted to the divine alt. The bill
provides that the teacheis shall piss a cer
tain examination, and shall be competent
to teach from the blackboard the rudi
ments of music, but need not possess an
ability to sing. So any teacher, m lie or
female, so long as they "know how Us
done" need not be required to give prac
tical examples. The idea is to net puiely
elementary teaclnug iu the rudimeuti o.

In the morning the House pushed Dr.
Holton's bill prohibiting the manufacture
and sale of any "oleoginous" substauce,
or any compound of the same, other than
that produced Horn unadulterated milk
or of cream from the same. The bill was
read a third time iu the .morning aud pass
ed without dissent, aud was duly sent to
the Senate. Iu the alternoon it occurred
to the gentleman from Newport that the
bill was an unjust one; whether he had
uot noticed us provisions as read on its
passage, or whether his uooti butter
had an "oleo" tl.ivur, did unt appear,
but having obtained a vote getting the bill
back into the House, Mr. Prouly proceed
ed to pitch into the measure, and boldly
Hung down the gauntlet to the farmer ma
jority element. On motion to reconsider
the vote In older that the merits and de
merits of the measure might be ventilated,
the chair was in doubt as to the relative
volume of ayes ami noes.
FllisT vi:a and nay von: or Tin; SK-slo.S.
Mr. Furmnn of Swauton demanded
the yens and tiuys. On the call the vote
stood 111 ayes, loo noes. So the motion
just got through "by the skin of Us teeth."
On motion ot Mr. Prouty the bill wis
made a special order for Tuesday after
noon next. In the mean tune opportunity
will he afforded to members to look into
the butler aud "oleo' question.
Hut what a commentary on careful
legislation I In the morning a measure is
passed, and iu the afternoon a majority ot
the members vote to reconsider Its passage
ou the statement by a member ot the
necessity of so doing, in otder that the
Hoii'-e might become acquainted with the
provisions of the bill.
Au informal conference was held last
evening between the railroad commission
ers and the rnl road rommittees as to
railroad legislation deemed expedient by
the former. It was suggested that the
regulation of signs, and employment of
flagmen, at railroad crossings be left to
the commission to effect with the railroad
companies such arrangement as sha'l be
deemed requisite for affording public
safety at such places. The bill introduced
bv Mr. Proctor provides lor the bestow il
of such power upon the railroad cotninis
biou, clothing it with lull and conclusive
tiiithority in this behalf.
