The pun-Americans having made the circuit of large cities and visited a large miniberofinaiiiifactiiriiigcstalilishnieiits returned to Washington last week and the sessions of the Congress were re sumed. The Urazilian delegates, how ever, found themselves in an embarras sing position, and if we understand cor rectly withdrew from the Congress. They came as the representatives of an empire, but the empire they represent ed is a thing of the past. They express themselves as not quite able to under stand the movement tlfttt has taken place in so peaceable and gulden p. man ner. It is said that their withdrawal relieves Secretary Maine from an em barrassing position as he could not find a stenographer in the country who was able to report in lxith the English and Portugese languages. The result of this Congress will, be to bring the re publics of the new world into a position to understand each other better, and to enlarge the market for our manufac ture. European countries are now occupying the field, and there is no good reason why this country should not reach out and take a min-h larger portion than it now holds. We have received a letter from a well-known professional gentleman of the State tillering for sale for 81000 a farm of 2'j0 acres. The farm contains a fair amount of tillage, comfortable buildings, has unite a number of fruit trees, lxith pear and fpple, is situated onlv two miles from a village in which are churches and schools and stores, a hotel to which summer boarders resort in large numbers, and is ten miles from railroad station. There is no deny ing the fact that it is a back farm, but not so far back that one cannot drive out easily and quickly on a good road. If we mistake not this farm has been on the market for years at the same low price, and yet young men from the town in which it is situated have chos en to pass it by and try their fortunes in Dakota and elsewhere, some witn poor success as the result has proved. How shall we explain tins.' I here is always something more attractive in a new country than in an old one, and from the very Winning in this country the tide has moved towards newer re gions. This will be the case until these newer regions arc occupied. All that we can do is to persuade as many as we can that Vermont is just as good as any State, that the resources oi her soil are not exhausted, and that the same am ount oi hard hilior and self-denial here as in the newer west will bring as full returns. In conversing with a gentleman the other day who has recently retired from buMiK'in a Maa-hetts city and settled upon a Vermont farm, regard in" the present effort to boom Vermont, he"seemed to think that the tendency of the present movement was to set forth the poverty of the Mate and carry a false impression to outsiders regarding the real worth of the State. He thought that the other side should be dwelt up on more fully. He suggested that the State appropriate 10,000 tor the pub lication of a fully illustrated ltook set ting forth the resources of the State and illustrating its scenery. He thought that such a book circulated in the cities among merchants and men of leisure, would attract attention and bring about the sale of many places for country res idences. He thought that the people of the cities knew but little Hliout Ver mont, the attractiveness of its climate and scenery, the healthfulness of its mountain air, etc., and that with an increasing knowledge of these things they would be drawn more and more towards the State. While we may not fully agree with him in regard to the first matter, we fall in with the sugges tion he made. Such a method of ad vertising must have its advantages and bring people and business to the State. ' OLD SUBSCRIBERS Who send us two new subscribers (see terms) before Dec. 20th will receive the eight page Herald free to Jan. '91. It has not escaped notice that while towns for the sake of securing manu facturing industries vote to exempt them from taxation for a term of years no town ever thinks of taking such a vote in regard to a farm. Every inch of laud must be taxed, every improve ment that a man mukes on his land in creases the burden of taxes and there is no respite. We hardly know how the towns could help things in this direc tion and do no injustice to any one, and yet there ought not to be complaint if some of these abandoned farms be ex empted from taxes for a year or two, as an inducement to their occupancy. Present loss cannot be much, and in most cases whatever hiss there may la will come back in a short time in an increased value of the land for purposes of taxation. The suggestion is a good one, and we hope some of the towns will take the matter into consideration at their town meetings next Spring. We find no fault with the effort to en courage manufactures, but let us en courage agriculture also. These two branches of industry will help each oth er, and both need pushing within our borders. In either case the scheme is to help in the present for the sake of future pains. ROMAN CATHOLICS. Among current events may be men tioned the Catholic Centennial just held in Baltimore to commemorate the es tablishment of the Catholic church in the United States. No similar assem blage in all history has exceeded it in boldness of thought and utterance. The ceremonial in the Baltimore Cathedral attended by men of wealth, rank, and learning from all parts of the country, even of the world, suggests by contrast the weak condition of the Catholic church in this country a century ago. Most of the enrlv colonists were lTot- estauts, Protestants with a pronounced hatred of the church from winch they had separated. Accordingly, while these several sects had considerable strength at the close of the revolution ary war, the Catholics were scattered and feeble, perhaps, except iu Mary land. His Holiness, Pius VI issued a bull creating the hierarchy of the United States, Nov. 6, 17H9, and appointing John Carrol first bishop of Baltimore, with Episcopal jurisdiction extending over all the territory comprised in the Federal Union. The then Catholic population was estimated at only 40,000 or l-100th of the 4,000,000 then in this country. About thirty priests min istered to this flock, and when Bishop Carrol held his diocesan synod in 1791 it consisted of but 21 priests. But the growth of the church has been steady ; aud to-day according to Hoffman's tlirectory, the Roman Cath (lic t.mmlntion of the United S'ates is 8,157,070 ; the total number of priests is 8,1 IX, with 10.500 churches and chapels, 27 seminaries, 650 colleges and academies, 2,799 parochial schools and 520 hospitals and orphan asylums. In New England, where opposition was ,,,,Mt vi.d.'iit there are one archbishop. six bishops, 942 priests and 019 church es. Catholicism first reared the cross within the limits of what is now the State of Vermont, in Fort St. Ann, on Isle La Motte. The Mass was said on the island for the first time in lOfifi, in the month of July by the Sulpitiau. Dolliver de Casson. The fort and chap el have crumbled away. A mission w as early established by Jesuit Fathers at Lake St. Catherine in Poultney, and (Jov. Hiland Hall in his history of Vt. savs they gave the uame to that beau tiful lake of St. Catherine. In 1830 Bishop Fenwick of Mass. sent Bev. Jeremiah O'Callaghan, an eccentric but devoted priest, as the first permanent pastor in Vermont, who, beginning his lalsr at Wallingford.fixed his residence nt lturlinrton. The, diocese of Bur- linirtun was erected in 1853. On the 30th of Oct. 1853 Louis de Coesbriand was consecrated a bishop in New York and on the Oth of November following he came to Burlington to enter iqion bio f,tTi,-e ns the Hishon of Vermont. Under his administration the number of churches in Vermont has risen from 7 to 71, priests from 5 to 48. There are 14 convents, 125 congregations, 1 U..o- anil 1 7 parochial schools with an attendance of 4000 pupils. Henry t. lark m liarre enterprise. SPECIAL.

Martin Washburn returned from A- j laska Saturday afternoon looking as if the climate agreed with him. He said the false and malicious rumors circula ted here and which the Argus gave currency to, implicating two of our townsmen had not the slightest founda tion which is just as we had believed. They were evidently started to injure the Alaska Commer cial Co. whose lease is soon to expire, with a view of preventing its renewal. Such stories- were started for that very purpose over a year ago and a Con gressional investigation was made that showed there was absolutely nothing to them. A certain young man in this village went out into the country not long ago after the shades of evening had fallen and ventured upon the hazardous cx ptr Intent of "setting up" a girl UKn whom pre-emption papers had already been filed. He buckled his horse up safely to a post innocently supposing that his wagon couldn't get away, but as the hours melted away in the midst of dreams Elysian, the wagon became tired and in some mysterious way took a "move" into a plowed field far re- mote from the point of departure When the new situation had fully dawned up on the young man there was something less than a sound of revelry by night. There was fire in his teeth aud hunger in his eye as he stalked through the boarding house breathing out vengeance upon the innocent and silent sleepers. His own sweet drama came near end ing in a tragedy, but prudence over came valor, and gathering up the con stituent parts of his team he connected it into one w hole, and went home to his little bed, more absorbed iu thoughts, of what had been than in thoughts oC what might be.
