In the Vermont Al manack of 1798, published at Rutland, an ar ticle on printing has the following paragraph: In Vermont tbe first piece that was printed was a newspaper at Westminster, by Julia P Spoon er and Timothv Green, entitled The Vermont Gai tie and Green Mountain Post Boy, dated Thursday. December 14, 1780.' Though the title given the paper In this article is slightly wrong, the dau may very well be the proper ono. The article appeared when Spooner was printing a newspaper at Fairhaven, and the 14th of Dec 1780, was Thursday." -Quite a party of citizens with ihe school committee, visited the new school house Mon day morning to inspect tho heating arrange ments, over which there has been so much dis cussion in the past few weeks. 1 hey found that tbe thermometer ranged from 6d to 7.

ANOTHER BBATII.BHOBO 1NYEXTION A New Klml of Parallel ' Bearing Which are to jbtTeot m Ureat Saving in Machin ery. TFrom the Springfield Republican nf Dec l.j The question of the hour that of ball or parallel liearings, receives a fresh answer from S H Barrett of this city and C E Barrett of Brattleboro, who have a little arrangement which they maintain produces less friction and greater certaintv of action than anything hith erto used. OrdiDarv parallel beaiings wear out very quickly whenever subjected to rapid mo tion or heavr weight, aslu roller skates or car wheels. Ball bearings likewise fail, except on bicvcles, because 01 'heir cast, because they will not hold oil. and because. Juke para lei rollers, they easily get cl..gea jjunl are worn away quicklv. The Barrett use the parallel rollers, in a now form. A caslngs used to separate each roller from tbe otjisr, the casing and rollers revolving together Ithl I tbe box, the roller at tbe samdHTOWrvoivIng separately withir. the casing at a peed several tune greater. With tbis arrangejrnent ihe stoppage of one roller would not affect1 the other, and bet'er still, It is found ;hat ;they do not etoD. The shaft, where it re on tbe beari-g. Dasses through a spindle of outer coat of hard ened teel. This method to economical since the body ot the shaft need not be ot ine cosiuer metal, while at .he same time it insures a snug fit with the rollers. Only a small section of the roller project through the casing to meet the shaft, ana so evenly is tberesistaucedistrtliiited and so little the wear that a sett of these bear ings which bave lieen In use In a three-ton milk wheel for four years, undergoing in working hours about 300 revolutions a minute, are nut vet perceptiblv worn. Although invented four year ago by C E Barrett, a patent was taken out only last week. At present the invention will be nmnly used in the manufacture of roller-skates at CE Barrett' Brattlelioro shop but it is intended to introduce the bearings in all kinds of machinery that use a wheel. A specimen pair of Barrett roller-skate has been put to frequent use.fora year past with most iatistactorv results. All other roller-kaies are built on the "carriage wheel plan, with consequently a large amount of friction. The skate has another peculiarity in tbe use or spiral pring instead of the robber that are used to curve the skate by tbe turning of the foot in rounding a corner. The springs give an easy and even motion, and obviate the noise which i produced by tue ordinary skate and tbey are anjustalile. Barney & Berry aiso nse springs, theirs being of solid steel. As tbe Bar rett bearings do not leak oil, tbe skates can tie kept perfectly clean to the great benefit of the hand, and clothing. The hearings cost about gl more than the ordinary contrivance, and so tbe pi ioe of clamp skates is put at $10 and ol strap skites at 7. The Iiom are new work ing on the first lot ot 1U0, but are prepared to turn out a large a number aa may ba called for. BELLOWS FALLS. Paying Kiccllon Bit.
