The Mormons do not undertake to work Vermont much. Tliey cultivate almost every other part of the world in preference. The State did her part when Bhe sent out the first lot. Through luck of other topics the pa pers are speculating upon our next del egation in Congress. We hear of Judge Powers in place of Senator Morrill,and of Judge Veazcy in place of Senator Edmunds and of somebody in place of Grout. These gentlemen can talk all they are pleased to, but we do not be lieve there will be a change in our del egation until sickness or death makes it necessary. Vermont knows a good thing when she has it. The county supervisors recently elect ed have just held a meeting ai Mont- pelier under the direction of the State Superintendent. The meeting was ad dressed by A. W. Edsou of Boston, in spector of schools, and the matter of obtaining information relative to the condition of Vermont schools and how to improve them was the leading sub ject under consideration. It is evident that the supervisors intend to enter in to the new business honestly ami get as much out of the law as it is worth. The Ix)throps have published a his tory of Vermont by John L. lleaton in a series issued by that firm. We have not seen the work hut have read some rather severe criticisms upon it. Such work could not have been written without containing some things of in terest and the extracts that have fallen under our eye show that the work is not without merit. Manuals of histo ry are the order now as few of us have time to read anything extended, in the effort to condense there is danger of omissions that mar completeness. The courts of Vermont have some marked cases to deal with this spring, The railrsad case tried at Burlington is as prominent as any on account of the questions involved. For genuine nastiness probably no court can sur pass that of Orange county in the na ture of some of its cases. Bennington county where Judge Rowell presides has a murder case. The charge to the jury was said by the lawyers to be one of the best ever delivered in a case of this nature. At this writing a verdict had not been returned. We believe Rutland county court has a murder tri al on hand. We do not hear much a- bout liquor trials, though Orange couu tv has one. There is nothing to indi cate that the State has been unusually disorderly. The June Century gives a very iu teresting sketch of Sherburne Wesley Bnrnham, a native of Thetford, Vt., lint a resident of Chicago. He has for many years been a court stenographer, but almost unknown to his friends, he has, in a quiet way been pursuing the study of astronomy, giving particular attention to the discovery of double stars. He has discovered about 1000 of these and with three others stauds at the head in this branch of the science While scarcely known to his neighbors who thought him a little queer, he was well known to the Astronomical Socie ties of Europe, and in close correspond ence with leading astronomers the world over. His machinery was somewhat primitive for these time., consisting chiefly of a cheap but good telescope, set up on a pole in his back yard, and serving to attract the neighbors' child ren, but a genuine Vermont Yankee can work out astonishing results with the most unpromising aids. He now has work in hand that will place him among the first of astronomers. A iionument to Gen. Stannard was dedicated at Burlington on Thursday lust. He was one of the most distin guished of Vermont's soldiers during the rebellion and the present monument is set up as a fitting testimonial to his valor Col. Veazey delivered the ad dress in which he extolled the General in the highest terms. The monument cost $2000, of which the State appro priated ?.')00. It is made up of a base five feet square, with a shaft 13 feet high surmounted by a bronze statue A list of the engagements in which the general participated is inscribed on a bronze tablet on the face of the center die. This will help perpetuate the re membrance of the great, struggle thro' which the nation passed and deepen in the minds of coming generations a sense of the worth of human liberty. Sadawga pond in Whitingham, Vk, is said to be liable to produce a small Concmaugh disaster. Newton llros of Holyoke, Mass., own it and use it to increase their summer supply of wa ter for tht-ir paper pulp mills at Keads boro. . It covers about a square mile and should the dam burst, a thing not impossible, it would let a vast body of water, with more than railroad speed down a narrow valley or gorge, where striking other reservoirs, it would gain in bulk and velocity and carry ruin in its path. There are several towns and many mills in the valley, and should it break loose in the night the loss of life and property would be terrible to con template. There is considerable appre hension among the people along the line of danger, and there is talk of a public meeting to consider the state of affairs and see if a little prevention cannot be applied. THE DR. CRONIN AFFAIR. The settlement of that little matter about Dr. Cronin in Chicago is still in process. Some things in connection with it seem quite clear, other things have not yet come into clear light. The police are busy following out clues and drawing the toils around parties who, it is expected, will sooner or later ap pear before the courts. It is known that Dr. Croniu was killed, his body found in a water trap, and it appears quite evident that he was the victim of a conspiracy. The conspirators were members of a secret order of Irish na tionalists, known as the Clan-na-Gael. Dr. Cronin belonged to this society had been prominent in it, and knew of its movements. Among other things he knew that there had been a perver sion of funds, and he had taken steps, or signified his purpose, to bring to ac count those who were guilty of this per version. This account, as we under stand, was to be rendered within the society itself. Here was the motive for the iruilty parties to conspire. The Dr. was an inconvenient man to have around, and like guilty men from the beginning of the world they undertook to conceal one crime and gratify re venge by committing another. The details of the crime have been pretty thoroughly worked out and have filled a laree space in the daily press of the country during the last two or three weeks. Several men have been ar rested for complicity in the act of mur der, some of whom are at large under bail, and strong evidence has been se cured against others, for whom the police are watching. It i9 thought the man, or one of the men, who committed the fatal act has been found in the person of one Burke at Winnipeg, who has figured as "Williams" in the accounts of the affair. The arrests include some prominent as Irish agitators and it may be that others will be called to account. This affair has brought the Clau-na- Gael into considerable notoriety. How far the organization, as such, is respon sible for the murder does not clearly appear. We understand that it con demns the murder as a gross outrage. It is more than probable that there was a conspiracy within the body, of cer tain men who had control, and that the organization can be held responsible so far only as it was of such a character as to admit such men to membership The society seems to have been organ ized for a legitimate purpose, but it full into the hands of men who sought to carry on a kind of dynamite war against England under the shelter of our flag. A portion of the missing fuuds are sup posed to have gone for this purpose. The accounting might lead to unpleasant disclosures in this direction. Hence the desire to avoid it, and the weight of the motive to remove Dr. Cronin. Among those now under bonds is Al exauder Sullivan, who has figured as a genuine Irish agitator and adventurer, He became notorious some years ago iu Chicago as the murderer of a teach er in one of the public schools. He es caped at that time because matters of greater interest engaged public atten tion and Chicago was not in condition to administer justice. If found guilty now he will not escape so easily. More people in Chicago now than formerly desire to save a good name to the town We wish to enter a protest against this un-American method of doing business. What legal, nutural or moral right have foreigners to come here, organize open ly or secretly, and carry out by the basest methods, hostile designs against individuals or governments that they do not like ? Are we to spread our flag over the nests of these unclean birds? Every foreigner, be his nation ality what it may, who desires to be au American citizen should disavow the act of Sullivan and those presumed to have conspired with him. The Irish cause, iu the best meaning of the term suffers irreparable injury at the hands of these men. It is not an American idea for men under cover of secret or ganizations to set aside processes of law as provided by statute and set up as judges and jurors and executioners. It is a method of doing business that should be stopped by summary process. As the investigation of this case pro ceeds the feeling against so large a for eign immigration grows deeper and stronger. It is not there is objection to decent people coming and making homes with us, but multitudes of the evil-disposed take advantage of the lib erty we allow and do us immense inju ry. We are anxious that the Cronin murder be thoroughly investigated, that nothing shall be left undone that will throw light upon the matter and bring every man who had a hand iu the af fair to answer before the courts of the land. This continual plotting by secret organizations of foreigners against the peace of society and the lives of men at home or abroad ought to be stopped, even if it be necessary to stretch a few necks in order to do it. We think it can be done when we are ready to de mand it and insist upon our demands. There will spring out of Croniu murders some dav a force that will bear down with terrible vengeance upon those who over-ride law and justice to carry out their infamous designs. The department of the Grand Army of the Republic for Vermont was or ganized May 18, 1868. The Vermont monument ou the battle-field of Ge'tysburg will be dedi cated the second week in September. The veteran soldiers of Franklin and Grand Isle counties with their friends will hold a re-union and celebrate the 4th of July at Missisquoi Park. The G. A. R. fair at Montpelier has been postponed to July 16, 1 1 and 18 on account of tlie dedication of the Stannard monument at Burlington this week.

We expect to have next week a fairly full report ot its exercises in detail. To-day we give some historical facts and some details of the work of its present prim-ipitl, ro that our readers may he able to decide for themselves in a fairly rational manner where they would lie likely to get the best and most satisfactory Normal school instruction, and also where the liest train ed teachers would be most likely to be found in the state. Mr. Conant began teaching in Ran dolph in 1KG1, and his work there was so great a success that when the state be gan to supervise the instruction and in part support Normal schools, that was made a state Normal school, lie con tinued to teach there till 1S74, when he was elected State Superintendent of Ed ucation, and continued as such, by suc cessive re-elections, for six years. Then he went to the Johnson Normal school for three rears and then back to Ran dolph, where he has been for rive years. J lie time lie devoted to schools as Mate Superintendent of Education should be considered as valuable in its instruction and developing power upon him as any of the years he spent in the Normal schools, so that we may say he has been teaching, developing and tilting himself for this work continuously since 1x61, or 28 years in all. lie laid the foundation and planned the only practice school ever established in this state in connection with a Normal school but did not stay ln .Tohnsou to do the work In it, but fully believes iu such schools and is seeking to have such a dejiartmeut attached to his school at I'audolph. More than 400 students have graduated under his im.trtction.aud these and thev who were examined by him, as State Superintendent of Education, hold licenses siinicd by him in all over 900 teachers, liis school at Randolph, when he went back to it live years ago, had in some way got to a lower grade of schol arship than was likely to produce satis factory teachers. In raising the stand ard the size of tlie school was speedily (educed, but it is now gradually increas ing in size and turning out better teach ers than ever before.

The following letter from a Boise City, Idaho, workman will be read with inter est : "Cases are multiplying in all the chief centers of "booms'' in the Northwestern Territories of peculiar hardships, owing to immigrants having left their homes iu the East and slaked their all ou getting to this country, which, by speculators in lands aud lots,ls represented to be every thing that is fair and promising. Now if people will enly exercise their reason on this subject the same as on any other they would consider, tirst what they could do in the West to make a living There are no places in stores, because they are already filled. No busiucss openings because there are too many business men now breaking up. no stock ranges because they are already eaten out or occupied to overflowing. No farm ing at a prolit, because no markets for farm products. What do you think of 40 cents per bushel for wheat delivered at the railroad, or 812 per head for cat tle, or $:(0 for a horse Thatis'all that can be gotten tor produce and stock. I am writing this for the benotit of work- ingtnen who are misled by flsming boom ing headers, written by interested spec ulators, and I hope it may be the means of saving some poor good ptoplc from a w-eary expensive journey, only to hud out that they have been deceived. There are many such who are here and cannot get away. Carpenters are leaving here, likewise every working-man who can getaway. Seattle and faeoma are full to repletion. 1 heard a gentleman say that in a short walk in the streets of Se attle he was accosted by six men beg ging for bread. People who come West with a capital may by hard work get along, but people w ithout . abuudant means had better stay at home. A fam ily of five left here yesterday for New York State, who had been deceived by newspaper pud's about the fertility cf the soil and the tine and healthful cli mate. It cost 350 to get here and afU'r two months' trying to obtain employ ment have concluded to pay $:i."iU to get back home, worse on" in health and pock et than when they came, but wiser. Now 1 will wiiut up by calling vour attention to mv last remark, viz. : that they came here, spent their money and got in return "wisdom," as thev went away wiser than they came, hence noue would naturally conclude that this is a good country for fools. Send the fools along and if no other good comes of it they will be well cured of their folly. R. A. U.
