lie Lamoille PflMlsMni Company, Editors and Proprietors. Published Every Thursday at MORR13VILLE AND HYPE PARK. AUGUST 29, I8S9. Commissioner Valentine's immigra tion scheme seems to be taking witb the state papers. We acknowledge receipt of Bulle tins 15 and 16, from the State Agri- 1 TVnpriment Station, also LUltUI Jf program of the Dairy Conference at Burlington, Sept. 4 and 5. ha onn nf a o-nn" must be that hnsfl hall Ditcher in Honolulu, whom the besieged king employed to "place' his bottles loaded with dynamite anions' the armed rebels. Probably o he stood behind some corner &i "curved " the bottles. The next session of Congress prom ises to be a lively one. Among the things to be considered at the outset are the contests for 18 seats which have been filed with the Clerk of the lost. TTnnsp. who holds over until his successor is chosen. They are mostly from Democrats in southern districts that elected Republicans. The supposition that President Har rison will call an extra session of Con gress in October or November next, arouses interest as to who will be the next Speaker of the House. "While there are many who have been men tioned for this important position the contest appears to lay between Mc Kinley of Ohio and Heed of Maine. The former has announced that he is a candidate and says that he " will go into the caucus with more votes than any other candidate in the field." He counts on the full vote of Ohio, (16), several from Pennsylvania, and a few from New York and the South. He gives Eeed the twenty-three votes of New England and the other candidates their own State delegations, with some scattering votes. The Boston and New York papers are publishing the method of playing the old "onion game." Their way may be the "culchawed " way, but up here in this mountainous land, where the cool, fresh air makes blooming cheeks and rosy lips, we think they "missed de p'int" as badly as Huckle berry Finn's colored friend. We play it the same up to the kissing point. Then, if the young man guesses cor rectly which one bit the onion, he has the privilege of kissing all the other girls in line. If he fails, he is con demned to kiss the girl who bit the onion. These papers are right in saving that the game furnishes much variety and amusement. Vermont's onion crop is lare. The game is an every day "Lady or Tiger." The remark i3 going the rounds that the city people ought to recipro cate the "fresh-air" movement and give our country children an opportu nity to see the sights of a great city. This may appear desirable at first it did so to us. But further consider ation leans U3 to the belief that it is not wise. The complaint has always been that our young people, the boys particularly, were too much inclined to leave the old homestead and go to the city. What, then, shall be said of U9 if we put in their way the temp tation to live among ail these splen dors. We bring the children from the city, and in that we do well. But when we send our children there, we show them all the novel sights, and what more natural than the desire to live among them. Then, unless man aged with the mott scrupulous care, what an opportunity would be pre sented for sleek, scientific kidnapping. And as to the idea that it the associa tion with city ways would broaden their minds, in a state where there is a good academy on every hill-top, as in Vermont, to send oar young peo ple at that impressionable age, into a great city would be an unwise experi ment, to say the least. The broaden- j ing might be in a direction we didn't anticipate. The Randolph Muster. Gen. Greenleaf was asked whether he considered this encampment as successful as preceding ones, to which he replied that, all things considered, it was the most successful encamp ment ever held. The men have av eraged about two hours more drill a day than at previous encampments. have made greater advancement, have taken great interest in the Shooting have remained in camp evenings, have shown greater interest in the sanitary condition of the streets, as the report shows ; and better order has prevailed . i . i it. . , mrouga me nignis man ever was known before. No organization was marked less than 90 (100 being per feet). Skirmish drill received the lar ger attention, the troops being even exercised in attacking and repulsing aner aarK. me guard house was on occupied during the entire endhmn went. Especial mention is made of the excellence of the new batteiv Aue oniy acciueni was to private Goodspeed, of Richford, who forgot to remove his extra cartridges before proceeding to clean his rifle. Amon" the distinguished men who were pres ent, were Gen. Schofield, the com mander of the regular army, with his staff, Secretary or W ar Froclor am his private secretary, Gov. Dillin ham and staff, and a good sprinkling of other state officers, as well as in etructors detailed from the regular army. An interesting unpublished manu script by Lincoln will be given to the public in the September Century During his second presidential cam paign be was invited to attend a Union mass-meeting at Buffalo, and at first thought of writing a long let ter, but concluded afterward to send only a formal note. The part of the letter written consists of about five numbed words and is a defense of bis own policy, in the course of which he saya t "Iu no other way could I serve myself eo well aa by truly serving the Union." AGAIN ESAXU) FROM. A Few More Xotcs by " Trouble.1'' PHIN. BENJAMIN. Beyond question P. S. Benjamin had his faults like other men, but he was frank, good natured, a kind hus band and true to his friends. He was Phin. Benjamin, and a hale fellow well met. Phin. was inclined to be a Democrat, and I recollect one day be ing in a newspaper office with the late Gen. Foster and Rich. Parker, when in came Benjamin, and after saying a good word, broke on to the humble editor and said: "I've got 'nouh of vour black Republican twaddle and' I want to pay up and stop your paper. I've just stopped one," naming the paper. I think it was called the Burlington Democrat. He paid, when the broken hearted editor said : "And you have stopped the Democrat, but I will bet the sub scription of my paper, four dollars or nothing, that the man who runs the Democrat will keep you on the list," and Benjamin accepted. At that time Foster, Parker and myself were subscribers to the Democrat, and after Benjamin left it was arranged that for the coming few weeks each should send him his copy of the paper he had stopped. In about two months I chanced to be in the same office, when in came P. S. He neither looked smiling or sad; reaching for his vest pocket he fished out two two dollar bills and throwing them on the table said: "There, blast you, take that ; I have had four copies of the Democrat regularly since I left this office." . Later Gen. Foster, Parker and myself apologized, (?) but Thin, enjoyed the joke. Yes, all in all, Phin. Benjamin was a good, generous fellow, worth a thousand of hide bound mortals who live because they cannot afford to die. EDITOR EARLE. I notice by a recent issue of the News and Citizen that A. A. Earle still lives. Well, Earle never was an ideal gentleman, but oftentimes his humor was to the point. One day I met him with a party, after he had passed through some medical treat ment, when I said : "You are looking better. I was told you had softening of the brain," to which he replied: "I was hard up, dizzy and stupid, and at one time the docters feared I would not know as much as you do." A. A. Earle and I have been sworn enemies ever since. ANOTHER. When the Burlington Clipper was inclined to be aggressive if not bril liant, it seems that a brother of A. A. for a time was foreman of the office, and the "devil," or someone else, set up the paragraph, "Mr. Earle, brother of the editor of the Morris ville Citizen, is now foreman of this office. He seems like an honest man," which A. A. at once cut out, credited and said : "How lonesome he must feel." FINANCIAL. I notice by an item in your paper that Theophilus Hull Page is about to attend school at St. Johnsbury. I met the lad once with his father in Washington, D. C. and was in the Senate gallery with them, when I formed a limited idea of Hull's train ing and education ; this was when he was quite a youthful lad, and point ing out various senators, we reached Dan. Cameron, one of the wealthiest men in the Senate, and it was so given to the youth, when he at once asked : Did he make his money or did his father give it to him." Beine as- r ,- n,-j mn& nwt it he was men anxious to Know wnicn was worth the most. From this I gleaned a little of young Hull's classical am bition. Well, I hope he will enjoy himselt in the good town of bt, Johnsbury, and in due time, money happily, and so on to the end. ESQUIRE WALLACE PARKER AS PHILANTHROPIST. I remember spending a few day: in Cambridge some twenty-five years ago when Wallace H. Parker had an ideal boy, the pride of his life. It was his economy or philanthrophv that would encourage him to take the lad to some of the neighbors in the afternoon that he .might entertain other children and other children tired mothers. 'At last this became tiresome to the neighborhood, an one day I heard the following collo quy : "Wallace go over there and take that youngster of yours home ; they are tired ot him ; enough without him." "Where is he ?" moaned the statesman. " Over to my house, was the cold reply. "Then," said Parker, "I'll go right over and get him ; he 1 starve there. PARKER NO. TWO, I do not feel it my duty to devote too much space to one statesman of "Spunky Lamoille," but there was time when Wallace was religiously in clined and attended a Moody and Sankey meeting in Burlington, and this is the result as told. In due time he returned to Cambridge, borrowed some tobacco and a pipe, and started for the "bar-room," sometimes called office, of the village hotel. Putting nis teet classically on the stove, h proceeded to tell his experience, and u was about thus : "1 went into th city hall, borrowed one of Sankev': books, and when they struck out to sing, i struck in, and the first thing I Knew i was tne object ot the entire congregation. Sankey was nowhere rney were all looking at mfi At that time there was another legal centle man in Cambridge, with his feet on the same stove, who calmly asked, thus: "Wallace, had a jackass ap peared at the window and brayed, what do you think the audience would have thought, and the prompt reply was v-d-i x presume rney would con elude that the other lawyer from Cambridge was there seeking noto riety. ESQUIRE SAWYER. Spunky Lamoille, or all New Eng land, have produced more remarkable men than the late Toshua Sawver. bluff and rough, he had a most fertile brain and knew common law as well as state. One day, while a lad, I was m the Hyde Park court house, and the clerk of the court was trying to icau some document, but could make no headway. He seemed to have struck a page of bad Chinese, when Mr. Sawver entered th rnnm 0,1 Thomas Gleed one of the brightest men that ever sat in court cried out as he lilted his left shoulder : "Saw yer can you read your own writing, uu one uere can r ine manuscript was passed over to him. At first he was badly broke up, turned the sheets up and down, and turning to Gleed. said in bold words : "What in thunder is this matter about ? " After hpino- :r i i , . o iiKji uieu ne read tne manuscript as though it were printed with bisr wood type, i saw the paper afterwards and of all the mnemonics thev were entitled to the prize. . , Torpid Liver.

Wednes day came with threatening rain in the morning, but the clouds rolled by and the day proved a pleasant one, the at tendance all the while increasing The Rev.
