Editor of the Ike ; Deab Sir: Yesterday closed the door Against all "new matter for legislative action. Two hundred and fifty bills, petitions and resolutions were presented yesterday. Among the resolutions was one in reply to tbe famous Smith sisters .essay, petition, or whatever it was, in which tbey' regretted that tbey were born women. Representative Mooney introduced the "reply'1 which "brought down tbe bouse." Life insurance seems to be in great disfavor. There is evi dently something "rotten in Denmark." The ubarter Oak ana uontinentat snouia be wouDd up so tight that the main springs would break, and. then it would be well to "smash the clock," The tem perance question will occupy much time and some exciting debates will be had on this ever persistent question. It Is too rarrty to decide who is leader on either '"aide of the House. ' Mr. Gallagher, of New Haven, is most prominent on the democratic side. On the other, Mr. Per ry, of Fairfield, and Mr. Frisbie, of Far jnington, are equally prominent. Hart ford: is livel, and New Haven must feel that a little more work for tbe capitol in New Haven would have paid, Kep.

It will be a good chance for the young people to assemble in the evening, as Mr. Wajner is a to jciabUtam, and enjoys company ne plut ultra. Tbe weather has been so unpleasant on Friday nights for tbe last two weeks that the Lyceum has not had any debate. Tbe question for discussion is: Sesolved. That the Bible does teach tbe eternal conscious suffering of the wicked. If the weather is. favorable no. doubt there will be a large attendance, as sev eral are expected From adjoining towns.

Editor of the Btt Dbab Sis: The fourth of the series Ot sociables for the "Island'' neighbor hood came off at the house of J. B. Gil lette, on last Tnesday evening, and prov ed such an enjoyable time that it was with difficulty the old folks and children veould be persuaded away1 jn proper sea son. - These sociables are growing more and more popular, owing to the absence of 'formality, tbe variety of amusements the conversation of some, the games, the general merriment, and also the regula- - lion that tbe refreshments shall be of tbe simplest, thus making it no task, but all pleasure, for tbe hostess of the evening. The next in course will be held at tbe house of Q. C. Peck, when it is hoped will be present, not only all the regulars but also those "popular clerks'' who have - once or twice helped out in the fun. If laughter is conducive to health, I think no doctor will expect a call from this neighborhood this WinUr. It has been suggested by some who evidently enjoy these gatherings, that after going the rovods, giving all the nine families dsamDiised in this district, a visit, they shall end off the festivities with a dancing party, at the house of Josiab Booth, that having been their starting point I think your ont-of-towu readeis must conclude that Newtown, as a town, must ha a "sociable" place, in tbe Winter, and that her famed "city boarders" are not 1 that keep tbe town alive.

Now, Mr. Editor, I see no reason why people need cry hsrd times. I have seen harder times than these in my past life. Tbe best cure for bard times is for a man to pull off his coat, roll op his sleeves, and go to work with a will, save all that he Dosslbly can give all that be possibly cau, and leave me rest to (he Lorn, ana ne win surety prosper and come out all right. Tbe to tal income has been $1,720. Yours truly, . W. Vobb. (We take pleasure in publishing the above letter, as It shows what a plucky Connecticut farmer can do, and that too at tbe ripe age of 68. Farmers often complain of bard times, and some of them sigh for tbe far west, yet with the example of Mr. Ford before us we fain would say to all such, stay at home, and work your farms with the same energy aa this old gentleman and correspondent mast have employed, and you will think less of the west, and reap as much here as there.
