The verdict of tho steamboat Inspectors

Concerning tho icccnt cases of discharge,
by decree of tho United States Court, of
certain inmates of tho Insane Asylum In
this place, tho Windsor Journal veryjustly
"While theiclbrc, all proper scrutiny by
tho Legislature, and by the people, should
bo made, and whllo tho decision of the tri
bunal losortcd to, for deliverance, should
bo treated with all duo respect, it ought not
to be forgotten that tho question of sanity
In a patient Is not always so easy to deter
mine from a few slight glances of tho eye
or a passing casual observation, as somo
very good and and very wiso men may im
agine. "Without intending or wishing, then lo

not believe it can bo done. Tho state of
the volnntary powers, In relation to

curate determination by a solitary obser

firmly and held with certainty to an exact
conclusion respecting its condition, at a
single Inspection. Tho truth is, this wholo
question of Insanity Is a very gravo and a
very difficult Inquiry for clear and satis

combined with tho very best sclentltlo and
practical skill are essential to tho truo an

tho whole noonlo look at this mailer. In the

A Washington correspondent or tho Mont
pcllcr Journal, after congratulating Ver
mont upon her recent election says:
"llcyond pcradvcnlure, It must secure
tho re-election of Hon. J. S. Morrill for

Kx-Scnalor John P. Holo on Sumner: "I

That Horace Grceloy well understands
tho present temper of the South Is appar
ent from tho following o.-Uract from a letter
written on his Southern tour In 1871, and
published In tho Trlbuno of Juno Slli.
How his piesent attitude can bo reconciled
with tho view than taken, we leave for his
friends to explain : a
"That llioso who struggled nnd fought
for secession generally believed thoy were
right In so doing. Rut, whllo they
still affirm tho right or secession, I am sat
isfied that n majority or them believe Its
practical assertion was unwlso and inexpe
dient. Thoy hold that they should have
made their lato strugglo In tho Union, not
against it; under tho flag or our lathers,
not that or tho stars and bars ; In ostensi
ble defenco of tho Federal Constitution, not
In resistance to Its authority. Thoy expect
to regain as Democrats, through oloctions,
the power thoy lost as rebels through war."
Charles O'Conor docs nof accept tho Lou
isvlllo nomination, as wo erroneously stat
ed last week. In a letter finally and defin
itely giving bis refusal, ho annihilates tho
Liberal Democrat coalition In tho follow
ing admirable scntenco:
Unless their lines aro kept firm and their
antagonism on some real or supposed prin
ciple consistently sustained, iKilitleal par
tics can produce no good ; thoy aro on their
faco mere factious combinations to delude
tho people, ami divide, as the profits or a
trade, such portions or wealth as can bo
wrung from them under the forms of law.
Consequently, In n country governed by
Eartlos, nn avowed coalition ot elements

The CKNTnAL Railroad TnotiBLra,
The Hoslon Post's money article of Mon
day says that "Tho Vermont Central and
the Vermont and Canada notes were pro
tested for non-payment, ns they could not
mako up the amount or their paymonls,
which wore large. It is understood that
this is only temporary, and that arrange.
menls are In progress to meet all obliga
tions noxt week. We trust they will out
live tho hostility arrayed against them, and
corno out successfully from tho ordeal
through which thoy aro passing."
Of the condition or tho company and Its
causes, the Sprlugflold Republican says ;
"Tho $11,200,000 or stock and bonds that
tho consolidated 184 miles or Vermont Ccn
tral and Vermont and Canada roads repro
sent arc, three million or Central Vermont
mortgages, llireo million of Vermont nnd
Canada guaranteed stock, ono million two
hundred .thousand of Central second mort
gage, three million (two lots) or equipment
bonds, and a million of bonds in aid of the
Chambly ,,nnd Missisquol roads. The net
profils on "tho business of the main line for
for the eighteen months ending last No
vember was less than halfa million dollars,
whllo tho yearly Interest charges on tho
abjvo securities aro between $800,000 and
$000,000. Tho discrepancy hero, added to
tho losses reported on tho roads leased by
tho Vermont Central, would Indicate that
tho business or the great combination Is
being conducted at a yearly los or at least
a million dollars. Of course this way of
doing business cannot long continue. Tho
sooner it Is stopjicd tho better for all con
cerned. It Is evident that tho managers or
tho Vermont Central havo indulged loo
much in hopo too little In fact ; that Ihey
havo paid too much rental for tho roads
thoy havf leased, and that they havo eitlior
had too llttlo buslnoss for their facilities, or
done much of It at a loss rathor than a
profit. Tho general public will greatly
sympathise with thorn, and especially with
Gov. Smith, tho president, in theso unfor
tunate' results of their enterprise that In
many ways lias provod of much adyantago
to lliolr customers ; but the lessons of ex
perlcnco aro obvious, and should not go
uiiharvcsled by all parties."
