A despatch from Buzzard's Bav of

Theso Domocratic timos aro teaching
tbo peoplo a numbcr of bard lessons,
somo of which aro summarizcd by tho
Troy Times. Tho matter of hoalth is
ono. People now wallc and get oxorciso

The First District.
Tho First District Convontion at Bur
lington, liko that of tho Socond District
and tbo Stato Convontion, that had pre
cocded it, was a harmonious and euthus
iastic gathering. As tho Free Press
says: "Tho Republicans of Vermont
haye every reason to bo gratifled over
tho result of tho lato convontions.
Tho spirit oxhtbited by tho members
of tho convcntion was plainly an ovi
dence of tho loyalty of tho dolegates to
tho great principles of the Republican
party, and that loyalty found oxpression
at overy opportunity."
Ilenry L. Clark of Castleton, presided.
I. E. Gibson was tho Bennington Coun
ty vice-president. Tho resolutions
adopted wero:
"Kesolved, That this convention re
afflrms tbo wiso and patriotic scntiments
adopted by the Stato Republican conven
tion. "Resolved, That this convention most
cordially endorsos tbo Congrossional
career of its present reprcsentative, H.
Henry Powors, and oxpressos its fullest
confldenco in his ability, fidclity and
statesmansbip."
Judgo Powors, liko tho boad of tbo
Stato ticket, aud his colleaguo in tbo
IIouso, was ananimously nominated for
mornbor of Congress by a rising yote.
John H. Whipplo of Manchester, is
tho Bennington County membor of tbo
now District Committee.
Judgo Powers mado a statement in
bis speech, that is important. Refer
ring to tbo next Congress, bo said:
"An iniportant duty rests upon tbo

This has been a Ropublican year. Somo
