Another observance of Memorial Day has been very successfully car ried out under the diiection of War ner Post No, 4. The threatening weather of the early part of Saturday afternoon prevented the large number bernf present which would hae at lndied had the weather remained fa vorable. At 10 o'clock a. m. the committee previously appointed, wet at the several yards assigned them ; and decorated the graves of deceased comrades therein buried, with flags, boquets, flowers, wreathes and ever greens, in remembrance of their he roic dying ; in memory of the hero ism of the men who died to perpetu ate our national government. No one who understood the spirit of our de ceased comrades could fail to recog nize the strong sense of the legitima cy of that authority to which they surrendered themselves in willing sac rifice. Comrades, we bear witness and it is the witness of a careful, though it may be limited observation that to us the most Impressive fea ture of that heroic dying was their sense of the authority of the govern ment to demand the sacrifice. It was not the martial grandeur of their en terprise, nor the benevolence of their cause, chiefly. It was with them a question of the integrity of their gov ernment. They fought for leaders who inspired them with soldierly en thusiasm. They fought for the liber ation of men in bondage. But their herculean motive was their conviction that they represented legitimate au thority, and were fighting to put down an unjustifiable rebellion. Could the testimony from the lips of our dead comrades be had, it would be that in the very hour they knew themselves as surrendering their lives for the perpetuation of the government they received as an inheritance from their fathers, and were bound to help transmit it to meiraescendents. Thev were heroes of that order whose wor thiest exemplar is the one who came down from heaven to teach us how to die. Let us understand that it was this spirit that saved us.

Jiles and Capt Frank Kenfield, with the Morrisville cornet band and Post Warner in ad vance, followed by the citizens, and the illage cemetery visited. The rit ual service of the post was held at the south end of the cemetery, the lines being formed about the several sol diers' graves in that section of the yard. Following the service a prayer was offered bv Rev. M. P. Bell. : the band rendered f 'Sweet By and By, (find the firing squad under Captain Kenfield saluted the dead with a vol icy noni their muskets. The Post was then deployed, right and left in a line across the cemetery, and with a dirge by the band, the "lines marched to the north end, decorating the sol diers' graves as they were reached. Arriving at the north end the column was re-formed, and with a quickstep by the band, marched back to the Town Hall, which was soon nearly filled. On the platform was Post Commander Niles, Rev. F. E.

With a selec tion by the band, the closimr ritual service by the Post and a benediction by their chaplain, the exercises were ciosed. a. vote 01 thanks wnp ex tended the speaker, quartette and band, and those who assisted in making a success the observance of the day 1 he music by the band added much to the occasion. Commander Niles invited the members of the- band to meet the Post at their hall, where in behalf of the comrades and their friends, he presented them with $20 as a small token of their appreciation for their service, rendered in behalf of the Post, in remembering with its tribute of a nation's gratitude, the graves- of deceased comrades. The members of the band were taken by surprise and expressed their gratitude by giving the "boys in blue" three rousing cheer, which was followed by three cheers and a tiger from the com rades. The Commander, then- in. be half of the comrades, presented the orator ot the day, Rev. F. E.

The types last week made us say Wes ton, wnere it should have reaa "New ton," Mary for "May," and Dr. Brush where it should have read "Dr. E. R. Brush," as there is a Dr. A. G. Brush. Dr. Briggs set fire to some brush on his premises recently, when a stronff breeze sprang up and drove the fire into the tence anil woods near, and it was only by the' laborious and persistent ef forts of himself and two other men that the fire was finally controlled and pre vented from doing serious damage.

Fletcher, through your correspondent, returns thanks to the Fairfax correspon dent of the Messenger, who compliment ed it so highly on its mterest in educa tional matters, as shown by its attend ance, reception and entertainment of guests at the late educational meeting; drawing comparisons between this town and Fairfax. ' Fletcher was well repaid for giving open ears and eyes, food and lodging; leaving them no bills to pay, and for this reason, if for no other, the hotel keepers of Fairfax are doubtless glad they do not live here. Prof. Web ster and Supt. Dartt both praised the bountiful dinner served free to everybody in the church vestry. We add a briet synopsis of Mr. Dartt'8 lecture, hoping those who did not hear it will derive some good from Its perusal. Spoke on phases of school work; object of educa tion to men and women. The teacher's work seems tame compared with the busy world without, but their work is foundation building. These are the su perstructures built upon it. The forces operate by brain power. The train of thought is toward the accumulation of money. Too little value is placed upon manhood, upon real character. What makes up the value of man? Integrity; it is the need of the hour, need of the world,men of character. What are the agenciesJ Some shirk all responsi bility on to the church and Sabbath school. These are factors, but the home first and schools next. Their influence more direct on the masses than the church. Indirectly the church has great influence should stand side by side, society a factor, and these make up society. Paid a handsome tribute to the pioneers of this country, who, amid many uimcuities. founded homes, scnoois ana churches. Reading, also a factor, but there is much whloh is poisonous, from which youth should be guarded. Com mon schools, with a greater power than alt others.-JAss than 15,000 in the grad ed schoofr and colleges ot Vermont, while there are GO.OOOjiin the common schools. Plea for better schools, better school rooms, conveniences and applian ces for school work. Proud of Vermont, its homes and schools : many good, but not all. Need better teachers ; must pay tli skilled teacher : should keep in mind the moral influence; no comparison be, tween this and the accumulation of mon ey; intellectual training not first, but moral, then mental. Wa have lost sight of moral character; it pays to save the young men; cheaper to educate them than to support them In Rutland or Wind sor. Glad we had adopted the town sys tem. Support of schools not a gratuity, but the discharge of an obligation last in as life. Prof. Webster added that we wanted men and women in whom we had confidence. We demand the best work, the best results. One word as to moral qualities. I never saw any per cent, of moral standing; mental fitness required. Moral fitness not demanded or known. So long as the one demand is made and the other neglected, matters will not improve in this direction. Had seen children drunk in sohool ; girls and hoys eight to ten years of age smoking, also a terrible evil.
