Standard Tbimsiinq. A private let

the grape in the vineyards of that region.
The vine is trained to a standard of some
three feet iu height, and the trellis, is en
tirely dispensed wrtli. - The gathering on
this account, is much f.icilitnted, while the
labor is considerably lessened. The dark
colored grapes, the writer says, are not
eaten to any considerable extent, the
white being the most popular.

less thau five different busts of persons
connected with the Unitarian College lit

promise it evidences might well be a
source or local pride to our fellow citi

On Monday night, while thick darkness
covered the earth, and the winds shriek
ed wildly, some one walked inle our
chicken roost and gently liftdd or .two
Thanksgiving biddies from their perch
and bore them a ay. We're beat on an
independent dinner and would like to
club with some one. We'll furnish a plate,
knife and fork and an appetite, ifsome one
will supply the eatables. We can never
believe in universal salvation now. There
surely must be some punishment, endless
in duration, for tbe man who robs a prin

Thanksgiving Day was one of more
than usual pleasantness. Bright, balmy
and cheerful, an additional zest was given
to the enjoyments of the day. The re
quest of Mayor Talcott was generally re
garded in the closing of places of business,
and the union services at the Congrega
tional church were well attended. The
sermon of the pastor of the Presbyterian
church was rather out'of ille usual fraln
of popular thanksgiving day discourses,
and had reference to the source or author
ity, and. recognizing the sovereignty of
tbe Divine Ruler and Law-giver.. Like
most of the efforts of the gentleman, tbe
sermon was full or well digested thought,
and met yery general approval. The
other services or the occasion were par
ticipated in by Rev. Mr. Peet, of the
Congregational church, Rev. Mr. Day, of
the M. E. church, whose fine personel,
and manly voice and adaptation of
thought and expression, produced a good
impression, aud Rev. Mr. St. JonN, of the
east village charge.. tThis being, we be
lieve, the first appearance of these centfe
men in union service, since their advent.

style and manner is good, and not with
Tbe music was from the combined
choirs, making a rather strong force, con
ducted by Mr. Waite, of tbe Congrega
tional choir, aid Mr. Smi th having charge
of the instrument. Considering the diffi
culty of bar monizing so large and so
promiscuous a number of sincers,' arid the
few rehersals that aro usually given to
the training for such occasions, the per
formance was very creditable. The 12lh
Mass was one of the pieces brought out.
Jts generally heavy character was well
udnpted to the occasion and surroundings,
and tbe effort was good. Prof. Smith, of
course, did well his prt, as be always
does, and gaye 'us further evidence of his
complete mastery ofllie brgsn.
At the elose of the services a collection
was taken up for the Nebraska sufferers,
the wants ot our own poi. r beiug so few,
and those otherwise provided for. that it

lection ib tuis direction. The hour's de
votional exercises, there is no doubt, gave
uu ,.u mure gratefnl relish for the
table bounties and social pleasures that

Homhr Clark of East Trumbull,
having sold a slice of ten acres from his
homestead, to Mrs. Mahalu Thiirb.-r, at
the very fair rate of f 110 au acre, pro
poses to make an investment at Morgan.
To this end he has purchased an acre on
the east side of the railro-id, not )far
from opposite the station, where he ex
pects soon tc put up a ware house for
storing produce, with dwelling attalch
ed, to which he will transfer himself
when ready. Real estate appears to be
moving in this direction. Beside the
above, there has been a new building put
up opposite the station for the purpose
of furnishing amusement, we suppose, for
passengers awaiting the trains by taking
a game of billiards. The annoyance of
running such au iustitution within the
corporation, having suggested this loca
tion, just outside. -
Mr. H. B. Dean, seems to have made
general movement in these matters. " Be
side the purchase of the Latimer store
and stock, mentioned last week, he has
also bought the two store rooms occu
pied by himself and partner, in Mrs. Rau
da'l's brick block, giviu:; in trade Cleve
land property. He has also made a pur
chase of the Sperry cabinet shop, between
bis residence and tbe bridge. The building
has been moved back aud it is to be fitted
up as a butter factory. The considera
tion was $800. He nlso traded farm
lands with Edward. Nevison, by . which
he has added to a tract of land owned by
him some mile aud a half south of the
creek between 50 and 60 -acres,, squaring
out afarm of 500 acres which is to be
put to dairy purposes for carrying on his
butter factory. .
Beside gobbling up so large a portion
of the salable estate of Morgan Mr. Dean,
offered to buy out our friend Wilcox,
whose farm and homestead is opposite his
own, consisting or 41 acres. - That he
was in earnest,.was shown by a proposal
to band over bis check for $5,000. The
boldness of the. overture, was rather
startling to the Ex-Mayor, who breathe.!
freer after recovering from it. Ead the
offer been two or three thousand more, '
there is uo knowing what the result
miht have been.
Mr. Z. Sperry, has been seriously in
disposed, for some time past, but at. last
accounts bis symptoms were more fa

as a snow bird over a lively business in

through this job, he thinks, his next
move will be to Ashtabula. He is muster
of bis business, aud will do well enough
wherever he sticks his stakes.

Andrew Roy, State Inspector of Mines,
filed bU annual report with Gov." Allen
on the 30ih ult. The document is volum
inous paper, giving a detailed account of
the condition of the mines throughout
he State, summing up their re
sources and uiviug advice as to their
ventilation and general management.
During the year there .were twenty
deaths resulting from accidents in the
mines, and eighty cases of total disability.
He recommends the appointment of an
Assistant Inspector, as the duties are too
large for ou-; man. ,
In the municipal elections in Paris, ou
Sunday last, the. Radical Republicans
came off with flying colors. Ol the 74
successful candidates, 53 were Radicals,
and the reinainiug tweuty-one were
nearly "evenly' divided ..between he
Modorate Republicans and file Conserv
atives. When the Assembly meets again
it will be found that Republicanism has
lost n j strength dating the recess; cer
tainly so far as elections prove auylbing,
they have proved that the spirit of the
people have steadily adhered to the Re
Mr. Beecher'j Policy. We think
that Mr. Beecher's frieuds must be cha
grinned at tne receut evidences of an in
tention on his part to postpone the trial
of the issue between himself aud Mr
Tiltou as long as possible. There have
been two notable instances 'of this pur
pose within a week the first in the civil
suit pending against Mr. Bc-cher for
adultery with Mrs. Tilton, and the se
cond in the criminal suit agaiust Mr.
Til Ion on bis indictment for libel. Mr.
Tilton desires that either or both suits
be brought to trial immediately. Mr.
Beecher desires that either or both be
postponed as long as possible. It is imma
terial to Mr. Tilton, whether the issue
comes up in the civil suit agaiust Mr.
Beecher or in the' criminal suit against
himself. Mr. Beecher appears not to
want the issue to come dp in any form.
As between the two lines of policy, Mr.
Tilton's must command, and Mr. Beech
er's forfeit, the confidence or the public.
This issue between them is thoroughly
defined. It has arrested the attention- of
the whole world. All mankind was up
palled at tbe revelations or Mr. Tiltoii,
and startled at Mr. Beecher's defense.
Same men ranged themselves upon one
side and others upon the other side, wit h
fierce partisanship ; but the great mass
ol people decided to await the result of
a trial before a court or law. This was,
from the begiuning, the ouly certain way
of arriviug at the truth. Mr. Beech
er necessarily puts himseir under addi
tional suspicion when he takes advantage
or every quibble to defer this trial.
Such a course is only worthy the lowest
order of criminal practice.
