A D'eanui Anair at iMewarK.
A party of nine children drank Wednes
day from a brook at Newark, Vt., 10
miles from Island Pond, the waters of
which had been polluted by the carcases
of a horse and several sheep and were
poisoned. Seven died soon after, their
bodies becoming putrid and requiring
immediate burial. The others cannot
survive. A Mr. Morse lost two children.
Mr. Carpenter three, and two more are
reierred to as dying, taking his entire
family. Mr. Aldrich lost two. There is
great excitement in the community.
Several other children were poisoned,
though not fatally, by drinking from the
same brook a few days before as will be
seen by referring to our State items.
A later report says that 27 children
re sick as a result of diinking from the
bror-k. and that not half of them will
recover. It is said that potato tops poi
soned with Paris green have been thrown
into the brook.

Brattlelioro's valuation this year is
$2,524,300 an increase of $74,500 over
last year, which is due to the method
pursued by the listers, in bringing per
sonal proporty, money at interest, etc.,
to the light. This, with an increase of
51 in tiic number of polls, very nearly
makes up for the falling off by the quaj
rendium appMsal of real estate last year,
and will yield the town $14,000 in taxes
this year, instead of $13,600, as calcu
lated at the town meeting. The benefits
of this year's method of listing are so
obvious, that we hope it will not only be
continued here but adopted in every
other town of the State, as the law un
questionably authorizes it. A similar
method was tried in New Hampshire
this year, and the returns show that $10.-
000,000 of interest money, hitherto un
taxed have been unenrili, d; a million
and a half of it in Cheshire County
alone. It can be made one of the surest
equalizers ot taxation.

Rev. G. E. Martin's address which

on American soil the two principles

the other ot an inordinate and destruc

slavery northward until the meeting in
lines of battle. Tbe speech was nearly
free from partisan bias, and when allu
