were received with bursts of mirth and
applause throughout the evening. The
other roles were well filled and the
make-uD" exceptionally uood and the
play put on with an attention to details,
rnrelv found in travelling companies. As
for the play itself, regarded as a frame
for the picture of ''Alvin Joslin," it
might be called a success, but the plot is
so thin, and what there is of it so ab urd
and improbable, and the incidents and
situations so nearly approach the bur
lesque us to make the whole tiling
appear utter nonsense to the lovers ot a
really good drama. A man found by
the side of an insensible woman, with a
bloody knife in his hand, arrested, tried,
convicted and sentenced witn no neip
from his friends, no evidence from coro
ner or physician that the girl is dead
and w ho, after sentence of death, makes
his own dtfense. confronts and de
nounces the real villain and walks off
triumnhanllv. while in the end the sup.
posed viciim turns up alive and well,
and atier all tier troubles, wen uresgi-a,
rosy and smiling, is a train of incidents
too bungling to oe cauea a piay, tuougu
it answers very well for a platform on
wbich "Alvin" may strut and make
good "points." Like most character
play i it gives very little chance to others.
Mr. Davis is un actor of merit, and his
personation of "Alvin Joslin" a most en
fovable one. but as far as we are able to
judge, his support was excellent and de
serving ot a mucn better cnance tiiau
they can have in play written for one
character.

Francis Phelps vs. Willard L. White,
This was an action of trespass for taking
a quantity of hay. Plaintiff's evidence
tended to show that he attached the hay
as deputy sherin on a writ in zavor oi
W. i . Wvman vs. Chas. E. Ross, and ad
vertised it upon writ of execution issued
by the magistrate in that case, and after
it was advertised defendant looa ami
sold the hay. Defendant's evidence
tended to show that he cut the hay him
sical programme was the rendering of I self upon Ross's farm by virtue ot an
that grand old hymn of fir John Goss,
which has been sung in cnurcn tor cen
turies. "Te Deum Laudamus." There is
something in the solemn grandeur of
such music that lifts our souls away from
the earth and all its trials, gives them a
consciousness of strength and a repug
nance for the discord of evil, and holds
them in awed ecstasy, as in the presence
of divinity.
Rev v. H. Collins express! d the

He also made a few remarks in relation
to the association. It was formed iu
1880 with the object of interesting the
people of Vermont in behalf of church
music, that greater excellence, which is
much needed in that direction, might be
attained. Miss K. R. Brooks then sang

sides, and of wbich he forms a part, will
deny the truth of the above quotation.
If we areeag ir that the young should
form habits of study, and become famil
iar with tbe thoughts and methods of
the best writers and scholars, then it is
jur duty as citizens to assist them in that
accomplishment. We have establishep
a free library, and it is being well pat
ronized by a class of persons who
will undoubtedly be greatly benefitted
by its existence ; it is therefore emi
nently desirable that it should prosper,
and become a power for good to every
inhabitant of the town of Brattleboro.
The trustees have thought best to con
tinue the "Citizens Lecture Course" dur
ing the coming winter, as an aid to the
enterprise, and a committee appointed
by them to take charge of all necessary
arrangements have accepted that ap
pointment, and entered upon their work
with no little enthusiasm : but the hearty
co operation of the citizens is needed,
that tbe course may be successful one,
and that the proceeds from the sale of
tickets may be as large as possible, It
should be remembered that this under
taking is designed for the benefit of tne
entire community, and is by no means a
matter of mere local interest. In order
to secure the largest attendance upon the
lectures, they are to be repeated on the
Mnn.lav evening following their deliver
ance at tne town hall, in the village of
West Brattleboro, so tbst persons wno
may be unable to attend tbem in one
place, may do so at another. It is also
intended by the committee to appoiut
certain persons in each school district,
who siial; canvass the same for the sale
of tickets, and thus afford every citizen
the opportunity of contributing some
thing to a most excellent object. Tbe
gentlemen, who have been Invited to de
liver the lectures, are willing to give
their time, and strength to the cause, aid
as an equivalent, it ia expected that they
will each be greeted with a large, and ap
preciative audience on their respective
nights. The price of admission to these
lectures will bs merely nominal, and
there are few if any among our citizens,
who cannot afford to purchase tickets for
the entire course ; and since tbe me mure
of success which will attend our efforts
is wholly dependent upon the interest to
be manifested by the community at
large, let it not be said that an object so
worthy, sod one designed to cultivate the
taste for sound reading, and awaken a
genuine love of study in our vicinity,
should fail through lack of interest on
tbe part ol a single individual. Every
dollar invested in this enterprise will be
sure to yield a bountiful return to the
contributor. WiixiAsf H. Collins
