The steamer Duumark, about which
there has been eo much anxiety, has
been heard from at last. It appears
that the crew and passengers have been

to have happened on the occasion of the
bursting oi a pipe in the engine room
when the steamer was disabled. This
is joyful news to interested parties.
The party of representative capital

procession and a band of music from

of welcome were made and responses

Present indications are thai the Pres

the vacancy caused by the resignatiou
of Col. Walker of the Inter-sUtte Kail

friends are confident that he is the com

that the appointment will fall to a first

able to fill the bill. He has a strong
force pushing his claims. Not only

years editor of Zion's Herald, the lead
ing Methodist paper of New England
haa just died at his home in Newton,
Mass. He was a native of Koyalton,
where he w as born about 1812. He
graduated at Wesleyan university and
entered the ministry of the M. E. church
in 1843. It wag largely through his

Vermont is Dot only obtaining a fair
share of public honors directly, but
some are comiug to ber indirectly. Now
and then a young man leaves the shad
ow of these green hills and is heard
from afterwards. Some of the latest
Vermonters to win honors are the new
collector of New York, J. B. Erhardt
and M. W. Cooper of Rochester, who
has been appointed Appraiser. Mr.
Erhardt was a member of the 1st Ver

a successful business man, and has not

Mr. A. B. Chandler, President of
the Postal Tel 4raph-Cublu Company,
has just bee i interviewed in Chicago
with referen t to the consolidation of
the coinpa j he represents with the
Western 1 'tion, apropos of rumors to
the cll'cct that something of the kind
was going ou. Mr. Chandler denied
that any movement of the kind was in
contemplation. There seems to be a
kind of understanding between the two
companies that both have a right to
live and do business, without doing it
at ruinous rates. The Western Union
cannot own everything. There will be
competitors, and it might as well ac
cept the only formidable oue it has and
make terms and go on with business. as
to close it out and take its chances ou
other competitors that would be sure to
arise. Bates are now arranged as low
as the cost of running the business w ill
admit of, and their maintenance will
depend upon public support.

ington as the first President of the Un
ited States. The event to be celebrat
ed next Tuesday took place in New
York city before the seat of govern
ment had been fixed. It was intended
to inaugurate ou the 4th of March, but
traveling facilities were not as good
then as now and required some time to
bring the members of Congress togeth
er and notify the priucipal actors in the
scene. Washington was al his home
iu Virginia, and it required a number
of days to ride to New York on horse
back. His journey was almost like a
triumphal procession. Deputations of
citizens went out to meet him as he ap
proached the principal cities on tho
route and escorted him on the way as
he hastened along. The patriotism of
the people was at a white heat. In a
variety of ways they testified to their
admiration for the heroof the hour, and
to their love for a country which now
seemed to be passing out of its years of
disorder and confusion, and coming into
an era of peace and prosperity. Great
changes have taken place in the huud
red years that have intervened, but wc
do not Itelieve that the sentiment of pat
riotism is more intense now than then,
or that the last president was inaugur
ated with greater enthusiasm than the
first. The contrast between the event
and the coming celebration is wonder
ful. Thn lives of very few individuals
cover he entire period. In the ease of
thosa whose lives Wave run parallel with
the century, in this land, it may be said
they have witnessed a larger number
and a greater variety of changes than
have taken place in anv century since '
hnninti historr bczan on the earth. It I

so clearly written tliat by its aid a novice may
inauguration could be present and give
description of the same. The inter
est in this will extend only to individu
als outside of New Y'ork city, but in
the city no event of late has been so
greatly anticipated It is thought that
the attendance of people from abroad
will be so great as to tax hospitality to
the utmost. The nature of the eelebra
tion will be largely of a military char
acter. There is, in fact, to be a great
military parade. This is, apparently,
to be the central feature. There
is to be an oration, a ball, a Fast, and
various other features, but all kept sub
ordinate. As many as possible of the
notables of the land will be brought to
gether. The Governors of the States
with their staff officers, the generals of
the armies, the President of the United
States, and a multitude of subordinates
of all ranks and grades arc to bear a
part on the occasion. National Guard
organizations from every part of the
Union have signified their intention to
be present. The Southern militia will
be present in large numbers. New Jor
sy and Vermont propose to send their
entire military force. The entire Na
tional Guard of New York will be in
attendance. The militia of the States
will be present in their best attire.
Crack companies and regiments from
the leading cities have scut word that
they should be there. It is expected
that at least 50,000 men will be in line.
Besides these, the regular army, cadets
from the military schools, etc., are to
bear a part. There has never becu bo
many in processjon since the close of
the war, and those were tattered and
worn veterans from the seat of war.
Excursion tickets have been issued by
the railroads leading into the city, in
tended to cover a period of time long
enough to permit the merchants to do
their annual Spring trading. Thus it
will be merchants' week as well as cen
tennial week. Of course, thieves and
pickpockets will be there in large num
bers, and every device will be employ
ed to fleece the honest. An attempt
has been n'ade to give the police the
privilege o shutting up some of the
most noted rascals in anticipation of
attempts upon honest people. This
would not work. To allay any fears
that may be felt the assurance is given
that the city w ill be sufficiently policed
to protect every man present who at
tends to his own business. It will be
an occasion to strengthen patriotism,
and remove any bitterness that may
exist between ditferut sections of the
Union. Much complaint lias been
made about the management of the af
fair against committees iu charge, but
this is owing in part to the fact that the
celebration has assumed much larger
proportions than was at first anticipat
ed. It is not expected that there will
be any demonstrations elsewhere, and
as a consequence all interest was gath
ered about New Yolk's celebration.
We hope everything will pass pleasant
ly, that the day will lie fine, that the
multitudes will be orderly, that meas
ures will be takeu to prevent intoxica
tion, and that the centennial may not
only be a w orthy closing ot the first era
of our history, but a worthy beginning
of the second. Let us all pray for a
continuance of peace.
