E. II. Newton. It happens thnt tho couplo referred to were tho parents of tho husband of Mrs. Sally Btockwcll, now of Wcht Urnttlcboro, whoso lOfllli birthday was celebrated Inst spring t "About tho year 1770 Mrs. Stockwell, wife of Abel Stockwell, tho first settler, nindo n ijuiltlug, which was fnshionablo In thoso days, and has continued so lor years since. Among the Invited wero Dinah Fay, who camo with Ool, Williams's family from Northboro, Mass., and Molly Gale. From tho lato Mrs. Hannah Mather, wifo of Major Timothy Mather, tho writer received tho following particulars, as narrated to her by Mrs. Stockwell : "At tho time tho young ladies (Dinah Fay and Molly Oalo) wero coming to tho quilting, her boys, Abel nud Perez Stockwell, wero at work piling and burning brush. As they cs. pied tho young misses tripping through tho woods and over tho logs, Fercz starts up and says to Abel, 'dome, let its throw n Btoue at that bird (perching upon a neighboring twig), and sco who shall havo tho old maid' Dinah Fay, l'erez cast tho first stono and knocked over tho bird, giving him n fair claim to the damsel, fifteen years older than himself. At evening Perez accompanied Miss Dinah to her residence at Colonel Williams's. As his rtturu would bo dark and dreary, alone, by night, he was induced to tarry until morning, lli'ing much delighted with his interview, and with a hospitality so cordially bestowed, ho took courage and returned home full of animation. He went into the chamber live ly enough, to exchange his best for his work ing niit. It was then and there he begun to sing and to dance ; ami in the midst of his rapture flung out the following htnnzn : "Life wout Its! forever, Besuty v.111 decsy; rumbling Is no pleasure, And I'll have Dinah Fay. "All the liltlo circumstances which follow ed in settling tho preliminaries for the first marriage wero not told. Hut ero long tho happy wedding day arrived. It was in the autumn of 1771, when the ltev. Abuer lteeve of llrattleboro was invited to bolemnize tho first marriage in Marlboro, when l'erez Stock well was married to Dinah Fay. All tho in habitants of the town were invited as guests to the wedding; were ipiito punctual in their attendance, and all tamed tliruugh the night. It was in a log house of one room, with a stone chimney, nnd a large fireplace- with high jambs and a broad back to hold a pile of wood to keep them warm. When tho hour of rest arrived, with these accommodations (the best the house afforded!, all encamped upon the floor for tho night. It should have been said, all wero provided with a wedding supper. The good lady of tho house apolo gized for having pumpkin sauco as the only dessert on her table. To relievo her embar rassment good Parson lteevo related the fol lowing: "A man having moved into n new country wrote u letter to his friends in which ho ex pressed tho value of tho pumpkin iu tho fol lowing lines: "Pumpkin bread and pumpkin beer. It t'want for pumpkin we couldn't live here; Pumpkin pudding and pumpkin pie. If t'want for pumpkin vre should die." For the information of old residents of tho towu of Marlboro, Mr. Newton's manuscript gives tho record of every family having lived iu the town, from 17(1:1 to IM:.', with valua ble information regarding their descendant) iu other parts of the country.

A sixteeu-ycar-old son of Joel Dlackmer was drowned in runts river near uayBviuo, hiinuay, while batuiug. Mrs. Clarcnco Hoyuolds of Norwich, who was found dead in tno cellar oi ner nouso ten davs aco. and who was reported to have fall. en through the floor of her kitchen, is now believed from certain suspiciouscircumstauces to havo been murdered, and an investigation is being made. -Near the mouth of tho Lamoille river, in Milton, last Friday.

Tho next International Dairy Fair will take placo iu New York the second week in December, and It is expected that New Eng land will bo more largely represented than at the last fair. The Vermont Dairymen's As sociation havo adopted a resolution urging the farmers of this Stato to no represcnicu. Greater inducements in the matter of premi ums aro to lxi offered, amounting in all to 110,000. Tlie) Hulf Jtity School. The child's body requires labor to secure its development and perfection for useful in. ilustry. His mind, too, requires daily exer. tUo with school books And school discipline. The half day school enables the child in his weakness to do more woik with tho elevating and invigorating influence of tho school than he can do in the whole day Instructed with our daily schooling. These facts afford ground for tho conclu- sum that the vice nnd ignorance of the world are duo to schools which do not allow chil dren to use their bauds ot work and their minds in study both in tho separate halves of each day, This work and study always mingled in every day life havo produced the numerous list of honored, self-educated la borers who have benefited all ages of tho world. E. H. Fabbae, President llartlett. of Dartmouth, In an ar tide on hazing iu colleges, says that if tho students Creak the laws they must suffer the penalty, liko other offenders ; that "hazing" must bo broken up, uud that college students unut be trained to habits of subordination to authority, and learn that they aro not to bo tolerated iu habits of intemperance, iu horn serenades, and Insulting songs to faithful teaehtrs. He expresses tho opinion that the lubiiiuiion that secures inese resuus -unnincu iiRly and nt whatever cost." will win tho con fidence of judicious parents who wish to place imur sous where their physical, intellectual, social and moral welfaro will no bale.

Lieut. Carey, who was court-iuattialcd because ho did not save Prince Napoleon when the Zulus enmo upon the party from nmbusli, has been released from custody. It was no proof of cowardico that ho should re trial on such au occasion, and had a common soldier instead of a prince been left behind nothing would have been thought of It. Mrs. Silas 11. Graham has been arrested at Portsmouth, O., for inhumanly treating an orphan girl she had adopted. Tho girl was lashed with a whip till her body was covered with blood, and her toe-unils wero pounded with a hammer. 1'epper pods were then placed on her wounds, w hich wero afterward washed in salt and water, and, to cap all, the girl was cumpclled to cat the peppers that had been soaked iu her own blood. Two men, two horses and it wncou wero blown to atoms near Bradford, Pa., by an ex plosion of uitro.glyccriue. Tho men wero shattered into such small fragments that not n single ono of tho mauy pieces of flesh found scattered around on the trees nud hill-side could be ideutifieel as belonging to either of them. It is supposed that they were lifting a can of tho explosive from the buggy, when the handle gave way. Jerry Goldsmith is tho hero of Stono Mountain, a precipitous mass of rock used by Georgians as a sort of picnic ground. On Friday little Eluuia Jones fell over tho steep side of the mountain, which has a perpendic ular height of 1200 feet, but fortunately lodged on a ledge, where she could hold on by stuk'ng her fiugcrs iu a crevice. Jerry Goldsmith tied a rope about his waist and swung dowu fifty feet below the brink and rescued the child. A man was dashed to pieces at tho same precipice a few years ago. A few days uuo police officers of Houston, Texas, arrestee! several Unite-d States officials for breaking quarantine by insisting on run ning the mail train into that city, despite the protests of tho city officials. On Tuestlay Judge Jones of Houston tlismissed the charges against those parties and decided that the Hoard of Health had no power to eleclaro quarantine under the city charter. It is hint ed that the Mayor anil Hoard or Health will be arrested for obstructing tho United Slates mail. It is asserted in London that a firm of German engineers have positively construct ed an electrical railroad, with tbrco carriages, capable of carrying twenty persons, and a line of rails 220 yards long. Tho train moves at the rate of ten miles nn hour. Tho power is deriveel from a dynamo-electric machine, the current from which is transmitted to nnother machine which works the train. The condition of some New York tene ment houses may bo inferred from tho fact that the Health Inspectors last week found that mauy houses on tho east side aro utilized for poultry raising, geese, ducks and hens being cooped up iu cellars nuel under bed steads. In ono basement 300 ducks and 200 hens were housed ; iu one cellar 2.".0 ducks ; at another place were 180 chickens, whilo fiO elticKs roosicct under tue ueei ; uutt at sun an other houso 2(H) geese and ducks wero crowd ed into tho cellar. Tho fowls were unusually fat and plump, whilo tho people who shelter ed them wero palo and sickly. W. II. II. llarton of Yarmouth has in vented a machine which ho calls a pulse me tre, as It is oneratetl by tho pulso. This ma chine, which has taken him four years to make, when placed on tho wrist records tho pulse. At every beat a hand advances ouo degree over a dial, thus recording the num. her of beats. Another hand bweeps over a graduated scale, which shows tho force or in tensity of tho pulso. More remarkable still. a hammer is made to strike a bell nnd givo forth a clear and distinct sound, thus making the human pulse audible as well as visible. It is calculated that there aro now fully a quarter of a million of Jews scattered over the united mates, nicy nave lourtecu puu lio institutions under their exclusive control, although some of these are not sectarian in their benefits. There are fifteen newspapers nud magazines devoted to the cause ox juaa. ism and published and edited by Jews. They havo four Jewish orders, all secret societies. having for their object tho advancement of Judaism, the mutual assistance oi tneir mem bers, and General charitablo objects. The valuo of property of all kinds owned by con gregations is valued at upwards of $5,000,000, Mr. Edison exhibited on Saturday before the Association for the Advancement of Scieuco at Saratoga his new electro-chemical telephone. In its capacity to convey the voice to a room full of persons without any eamieeo exists the differenco between this and the ordinary telephone. A hinging and a talking voice can be conveyed distinctly at tho same time. Mr. Edison surprised his au. dience by asserting a belief that ere long it will be possible for an audience in Saratoga to hear through the electro-chemical tcle phoue a person making a Bpeech iu Now York, and that in time a concert may be giv en whenever desired by artists in another city. Among tho passengers for Europe from New York tho other day was Lloutehant Com mander Henry II. Gorriuge, of tho United States navy, who goeB to Alexandria via Liverpool, for the purnoso of bringing thence Cleopatra's Needle, which is to be set up In New York city. He oxnecis to reach Alexan. dria by November, with tho constructions now being mado by a firm iu Trenton, N. J., and to leave thero by the first of Docember, returning to New York by Now Year's day, 1860. Tho Trenton firm has nearly comple ted n very substantial and useful series of constructions for pulling down and setting up the needle. Commander Gorringe does not intend to tow the needle. No seaman, he says, would ever havo dreamed of Buch an absurdity, but he will ship it on a steamer as regular freight and bring it across. Where the needle will bo plaoed is not yet determin. ed. The Keservoir Park has been suggested, and also the circle at the Fifth avenue eu trance to Central Park. A stono man dug up at itghanio Falls, N 8 early in July, turns out to be another Imposition on a gullible public. Ira M. Deau manufactured it as a joke, getting the idea last November vrhllo laying a concrete floor in his cellar. He used grind-stone dust, iron, filings, eggs, blood, phosphorus and sal-amo-uiac, proportioning the Imago after measure- lucnts of his own body, Deau worked six mouths on his man nud then leased It to J. M. Thompson of Tughaulo Falls, who attend ed to us burial and discovery. Hut tho hum bug had an amazing success. Thirty doctors certified to its genuineness as a petrifaction, and 1000 people paid an cnlranco fee of ten cents to see It. Dean says his greatest satis faction lias been iu tue run ho has had out of tho thing, and he tells with great gusto of tho hours ho has spent nt Taghaulo Falls arguing against tho genuineness of tho thing with tho credulous, among whom were collego profes sors who spent hours btudylng the image's composition through n magnifying glass. Denjamiu Howe, n farmer of Osakona, Wis., has started ono of tho strauoest sects iu existence tho "Peculiar Children." Howe was formerly a Haptist, but was informed uy tno spirit" that n literal Interpretation should bo giveu to Christ's words t "Except ye becomo as littlo children yo shall not cuter Into tho kingdom of heaven." Tho apostlo of this new dispensation Is a large, rather good-looking man of 00 years, awkward In manner and uncouth in speech, but so car nest that he has made quite a number of con verts iu his vicinity. During tho summer Kowo conducts a catnp-nieetiug in tho woods, tho religious exercises being liko thobO of sim ilar gatherings. But afterward grny-bcards and grandams whin out their tops and mar bles, play tag anil kissing games, suck caudy and play with dolls for nil the world liko chil dren of eight and ten years old. Strango ns it may appear, this sort of thing makes eon verts to the doctriuo that believers should bo innocent, sincere, above care for land or gold, but instead should lovo harmless enjoy ment and thoso things alone which arc iutriu hit-ally worthless. Jr'ore-iiunirl. Of Adam Forepaugh's Grand Exhibition which is to be iu llrattleboro on Monday, loth inst,, tho Boston Daily Journal of July 30 says : Tho company Is nn excellent one, ami tho lueiingeriu contains many raru animals not seen in a traveling show, including n mag nificent giraffe, which is trained to harness, that curious creature, tho wliito yak, n rhi noceros, sea lion, a beautiful zebra, and tho largest herd of elephants, both as to numbers and individual dimensions, that has beeu bccu here, this season at least ; besides many raru ami curious birds, and a uuiuber of ingenious mechanical contrivances. Tho tents are spa cious and airy and finely ndapted to their pur poses ; tho one to exhibit the curiosities, auel the other to display the various feats of agili ty, grace or slreugth ou the part of the per formers in the riui. The ring performaneo is most ereditnblu to tho management nnd the individual actors therein, audinc hides riding, leaping, juggling, horizontal bar acta, trapeze performances, tho feats of trained horses nuel dogs, clownish eceeutrieities and othi r features usually set u iu a first-class circus, though it is rare Indeed that au entertainment of such general excel lence is furnished. The exhibition of traiueel animals is ouo of tho finest of the inauy fine shows w hich we have been privilegcel to see this season, the most remarkable feuturo being that afforded by tho traiueel elephants, which inny safely challenge the world to compete with it. These huge, aud appar. ently ungainly, but really nimble animals, seemed endowed with almost human intelli gence, performing tho most surprising feats with ease aud assurance. Their must noticea ble performance is that where nine of them form an immense pyramiel upon the tall cylin ders provided for the purpose, exactly ns rep reseuteel in the lithographs posted iu the store wiudows aelvertising the show. The beauti ful trick horso "Mahomet," a snowy Arabiati, excited much interest, as oue of tho finest formed of animals, as well as one of the most docile and intelligent over exhibited here. The performance by the acrobats and leap, ers of the troupe aro most commendable, the double somcrsaultiug of Messrs Cary, Snow aud others beiug particularly worthy of men. tion, the former especially, spriuinug aud turning over eight clephnuU lue-ludiug the largest of the herd iu the neatest maimer, antl alighting squarely nuel firmly on his feet without any of tho btaggeriug or slipping usu. ally seen at such exhibitions. Tho skilful juggling ou horselstcl: of ilu I'auuue .bee, the triple horizontal bar acts by William Fore- paugh and John Kobinsou, aud the luarw-lous skill as contortionist of "Ajnx" whose won derful twitiug ami turning must bo seen to be appreciated, but cauuot be deseribcel nud the many other novelties are also worthy of notice, as comprising perhaps tno most ad mirable general show given hero this year. The riding of the equestrians of tho troupe is most dating and skilful, including nets by William Gorman over hurdles, by Miss Emma Stickucy aud Miss Jeauette llurdeau. Par excellence, however, is the wonderfully grace, fill and bold riding of Itobert Stickney, who was welcomed with great applause, aud at the close of his act was presented with a large bosket of fiowers. The bareback riding of Miss Annie Carroll was also received with much favor, and after Mr. Stickuey's great six-horse bareback riding act tho audience went home, thoroughly pleased nt hnviug wit nessed a most excellent and well sustained performauce. , A STnAxeii; Nauuativx. Tho Philadelphia Times prints a singular story from Mayville, N. Y. Iu tho year 1813 Hiram Fish, n young man livinc at Home-, in Oneida county, be camo enamored of Amanda Noble, a beautiful cm, nndhisnffectlous being crossed by friends ho determined to go West, secure a home, nud then return nnd claim tho hand of his af- fiauccd. Ho went to Chautauqua county anil settled ou a tract of l!00 acres, whero ho soon Hindu nn attractive home. He then started for Homo to claim tho hand of his plighted beauty, but on his way was captured by In iliiins, nllies nf the British, and taken to Can ada. whero ho remained a prisoner till 1817, On being liberated ho hastened to Home, ar riviuc thero lale in the day, January 20, 1818. No word having been received from him for nearly four years, nuel supposing him to be dead, Amanda hod given her hand to James Harus, and ou that ilay (January 2ii, I81K), but a little before Fish nrrived, the inilisi,olu. ble union had been uiadc. His appearance at this time created tho greatest confusion. Amanda declarrel that sho loveel Fish and could not live with Hams, lo make the best of nil unfortunate circumstance Burns and Fish agreed to both live with her oh their joint wife. In pursuance of that agreement the three, in August, 1818, moved on to tue Fish lands in Chautauqua couutyt about seven miles from the present towu of Mayville, and there lived together for nearly nity years, un til the death of Karnes, which occurred Janu ary 10, 1861, and sho nud Fish lived together until his death, December 211, isiii. ut a long lifo but twelve years were devoted to the object of her heart, but thoso years were of perfect iov. Since Fish's death sho has re. sided with her childreu. Sho is now in her 82d year. The children were always known by tho neighbors as "Fish-aud-Harus." Ill evcrythint! n community of interest was had, valuable improvements made, a large fortuuo accumulateel, all of which was willed by tho respective deceelents to tho wife and four chil dren, according to the letter of the agreement made January 2li, 1818. It is slated that dur ing this long and strange life never n want was felt in tho home, never a domestlo lulsim derstandiug, not oven a harsh word. Tho Inteunatioxal IIevikw for September opens with a brilliant paper on "lteubens' by Philip Gilbert Hamertou. Henry Cabot Lodgo follows with a biographical sketch of "Albert Gallatiu," tbo Swiss born American statesman who figured iu tho early part of this century. Andrew Laug contributes a paper ou "Hibliomauia iu France," Thomas Horgeut rerry roviews and criticises some "Itecont Criticism of Byron," Felix L. Os wald iu an article entitled "A Murdered Na tion," gives au account of the extinction of the Circassians and the result, aud ltev. Geo. Washburn, D. 11., president of Itobert Col. lece. Constantinople, contributes a second iu- tcrestlnLT paper on "Encland aud Turkey." his subject being "The Conference aud the War." Tho number closes with excellent re views of "Contemporary Literature," and "lloi-pnt Tnfiltli llnnVa " Signs of Hetuiinino Piiospiuuty, Hlch ardsou, Iloynton .t Co., of New York, have manufactured and sold more of Hoynton's furnaces and ranges this Beason than during any corresponding season since 1873. It would seem as though tho people were begin ning to understand that a first-class heating apparatus is tne most economical. These In creased demands of our manufacturers are only "straws, which show how the tide Is turning.' TltK LATEST XKWK mE new toiik nr.runuoANS.
