The truth may be spok, id paying all damages ! A great mystery hangs around this whole affair. The first query arising 'how did the cats get into fie bag!\ [he evidence seems to be strong that jbody must have put them in. But this is not tho vital point after all. Such important questions as these at ie : Who did the cats belong to —where did they come from—where ere they going to— where have they one to —and what were they going there >r? Around all of these several heads aero hangs a strange and inexplicable lystery. There is really but one point hat is clear ; and that is the manner in which Mr. Rugar \let the cats out of the bag.\ It is his firm belief that had it the bag been untied within twenty inut.es, each and every eat, individually and collectively, would have suffocated it of pure air. Eminent medical tuthorities agree with Mr. R. on this )int. Prom thia a faint clue is reach- j 1 as to the time when said cats were cun- j ngly spirited away and concealed in .id wagon. It must have been within msiderably less than twenty minutes, i the cats were not dead, neither was tere any indication that they were agoing to published at all •cumstances, and the truth maliciously uttered will not give ci Tight to T/ictintain i civil action.\ These words might well be inscribed n letters of gold upon the walls of every sditor's sanctum in the land as their guide, for it is to a free unmuzzled press that the public must look for the ex- posure and suppres hi h b of ached through no othe ind the whole matter i back into a profound myBtery | md here we leave it.

Fo that the law has rebuked me, and to that ibuke do I bow meekly and deferen- tially. In thus trespassing upon forbidden ground, I presumed too far as it seems, isuming that the acknowledged mas- >f those terrible weapons—ridicule, ism aud invective—could bear a gen- ipplication of the same dose which he is so prone to administer to others, and which ho, in fact, had so recently administered in a mild form to the Young Men's Association, an institution which I had for five years been assiduously helping a few others to keep alive. Iu i i hi the and ommitting this presumptioi ays I have sinned, and for that s \nothing more\ have I suffered. To the question which will h< urally arise : \Why did you not, upon learning that you had injured the feelin of a neighbor, go to him when he sent have a friendly talk with a view to a settlement?' 1 I reply: \Bi ;th the message brought to n: which I. need not repeat, and wkic to Bay;wit-h\old Jack Falstaff, \No! not vj ilmost to consternation on the part of the organist.

WEED. NEW YORK, 13th Sept., 1871. M. WEED, Esq., Plattsburgh, K. Y. Dear Sir; I have yours of the 11th inst. Our Board have decided to postpone iy action for the construction of a road om your place to Rouses Point for the •llowing reasons: First. The season so far advanced and the time required ir obtaining right of way and lands for terminal facilities, that winter would re the road The cost of road by a careful estimate made by our engineers, will be much greater than i were led to anticipate. In deciding to postpone any further tion for the present, we must not be iderstood as deciding to abandon the r^oject, as on the contrary it will un- doubtedly be the policy of this Company to secure, at the earliest practicable mo- nent, a through line to Montreal via the *-est shore of Lake Champlain. Permit me to say that while we are :oinpelled to decline present action, we :ully appreciate the exertions of those along the line who have labored so earn- estly to secure the road. Yery respectfully, yours, THOS. DICKSON, President. We publish above, the correspondence Btween Mr. Weed and the Delaware & Hudson Canal Company, in reference to Un \-nposed Railroad to Rouses Point, die we sincerely regret that the Company did not determine to build the road this Fall, we are very muoh inoour- aged by the assurance that the Delaware & Hudson Canal Company have deter- mined to build a road through to Cana- da, on the west side of Lake Champlain, and we hope that before many years we 1 all see such a road an accomplished ut. In the mean time our only way is keep trying. We understand the Delaware & Hud- son Canal Company have, or are going break ground immediately, and con- duct the section of the road between Whitehall and Ticonderoga, so as to : 'ive it in operation by the opening of ivigation next Spring. From the above article from the Re- iblican, we arrive at the following con- usions : First, The Railroad Board have post- med all action upon the construction of the Road from this plttce to Rouses Secondly, The President gives no as- irance or intimation that the Board will icr act again on the subject. Third, The Railroad Board gives no ssurance that said Railroad -will ever 3 built by them. Fourth, It looks as though the whole the Vermont Central to get favorable i that Road. And having effected that object, the Board have post- poned indefinitely (we fear) further tion upon the subject; nor do we be- ve that they mean to build the Road jm Whitehall to Ticonderoga as stated the Republican, Our Harp is again hung upon tha wil- But still, the President says they must )t be understood as having abandoned the project of securing a road via. the west shore of Lake Champlain, at the ' 'earliest practicable moment.\ The Presi- dent does not assume to speak for the ipany any further than they have d. The expression of \earliest prac- ble moment,\ usually means some time, or never. The expression is a uvenient opiate to allay nervous itability, like Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup on children. However, we have nly to wait and see what turns up, and -hether that time will ever come.

Mr. Brewster is rather an old school gentle- .an, wtiom to know is to r6spcct. —Mr. and Mrs. Leggett are yet rural- izing at Lake Placid, laying up a large itore of strength for the winter campaign n the temperance field. —Enormous crops of oats have bei raised in town this season. It is quite .mon to sow a mixture of rye and oats, and even peas, and great yieldi ve been realized. But the early frosts B often fatal to buckwheat, and some- nes potatoes are cut down so early as leave a light crop and a poor quality. We should think, however, the Early Rose might generally get out of the way. ESSEX CO. ITEMS.—The following are from the Essex Co. Republican. —The house of Dr. E. R.

The damage by fire was slight, while the damage by water was considerable. Loss —The potato queBtion is getting large •oportions. Mr. Elihu B.

They have been in the hi if meeting once a year for a number of 'ears past with one or two exceptions. The following brothers and their rives were present: Anson Ayres, of Jay, Tilly Ayres, of Peru, Hiram Ayres, of Duane, Franklin iunty, Eli Ayres, of Peru, Joseph Ayres, of Saranao, Franols Ayres, of jybridge, Addison county,Vt., Thomas J. Ayres, of Colton, St. Lawrence county, Dudley Ayres, of Peru. There were a number of children and grand children present. The eight brothers are all over sixty sars old, and all enjoying comparatively good health. There has been only one death in the imily ; she was Rev. Hiram Blanchard's ife, who died quite a number of years ago. This was one of the most pleasant, )cial, and religious family gatherings that the writer ever -mtnessed. A very inviting and luxurious dinne as provided and served, after which religious service was held. It was intro- duced by singing, \And are we yet alii and see eadh other's face,\ &o. Then a lumber of fervent prayers were offered, iter which religious experiences were ;iven, in which all the brothers and their fires, and a number of their children ook a part, nearly all of whom pro- fossed to enjoy religion, and the two or } exceptions desired it. In the ing, we were again called to sur- round the table, which was so bounti- illy loaded with the good things of this life. This family gathering was such an iteresting occasion that it will not soon e forgotten by those that were present. E. TURNER.

The second day ich premiums as were advertised by ie Bocigty, were awarded to suc< full competitors—our space prohibiting a detailed list.

CADYVILLE,— There was a Temperani meeting at Pacific Hall, Cadyville, on the 20th inat. Kevs. W. H. Tiffany and N. B. Wood addressed the meeting. The meeting was organized by the ap- pointment of Mr. Loring Ellis, Esq., to the Chair, -who briefly stated the object of the meeting in a few very appropriate remarks, and closed by introducing Rev. Mr. Tiffany to the audience, -who address- ed the meeting in a very interesting speech of an hour duration, setting forth in the most glowing terms the baneful effects of intoxicating drink upon the human system, which was listened to with marked attention. Rev. N. B. Wood then came forward and addressed the meeting in his easy and eloquent manner, substantiating all that had been said by his worthy Broth- er, adding to it flings of wit and humor that was pleasing to all but offensive to ). His anecdotes and illustration! had a telling effect, being delivered in ;h plain language that a ohild might understand him. He was perfectly at home with his subject. The most per- fect quiet reigned during the evening, the Rev. gentlemen expressed them- selves highly pleased with the manner in which they were received at Cadyville, as also with mine host aad hostess, Mr. James E. Riley and his amiable lady, proprietors of the Pacific House, for the jrous manner in which they received them and all who wished to attend the Temperance meeting. At the close, Mr. M. Tormey moved i >te of thanka to the speakers for thi )le manner in whioh th»y addressed thi eeting, which was responded to with i will. ie meeting thn adjourned, all highly pleased with the evening's entertainment ' hoping that the good cause might prosper through the length and breadth of the land. _ M. T. From tho Kwex Co. Republics 'BIKND SAMUBL KEESE.—Mr. Keese spoke :he people from the desk of the M. E. nch on Sunday morning. It is a long e since his voice has been heard in Keese- e in the public congregation, and while omo it was entirely new, to others it had familiar sound, and the deep-toned piety of his utterances was as usual acceptable. Mr. Keese ia one of the remaining pioneers of the olden time, when to be an abolition- •as to be hated by the politicians, and perhaps worse. But the public sentiment .e and they aided to form against tbe ggressions ot slavery upon the rights, and iberlies, and material interests of the fi tates, saved the nation in its terrible trial— aved it ia tho great war that was sure omo—aaved it throuch the radicalism of its ideas, when through thost it would have teen lost, hopelessly )< The danger past, reconstruction secured, the peril now comes of indifference to radical thought, of radical effort in ni tious,not ihe least important of which is the question of temperance—an extensive indif- ference on the part of many where it should not exist, and where, according to avowed principle and prufession,it cannot exist.- On thiB question Mr. Keese is on the right side. Hu could not well be otherwise, or he w( not be Samuel Keese. It is well tho Quaker Bhould come occasionally among us the few remaining years of his life, if ily to remind us that there have been mea of principle who mi vet bowed the knee to ha- ted despotism, nor had their hopes blighted by the Boul-damning influences tkafilie hid- in the social cup. Let us then, at least k day after having again seen and heard ad Samuel Keese, ask ourselves whether uuvc rcully iloiitjj or iiitcuii to doj • things in social and civil life that c professions require of us. CHAZY.—Our staroh factories, aft idergoing extensive repairs and being fitted up with all of the mode ents, are now ^ready for bi ill receive potatoes in any quantity at all hours from this date. The promise of an unusually large crop of the \little esculents\ does not hold good ugaa \turning them out.\ The size ia ^erj fair, but the number in the hills i#noth- ing to the crop last season. Ih e Good- rich variety takes the lead is,this &eotii both for quality and qiwifcity, and quite eclipsing the much, itaunted Early Rose. Thirty cents is, tihe figures that our fac- tories oomiasuce on, but we will \allow' 1 that Ujfttis a \little\ too low for Chazy fnjBier.s to ever hope to get rich \rais- ing potatoes.\ The fruit orop through- out this section, with the exception of pears and gmpes, came very near being with ft ready sale at 50 cents per bushel r or ascending Whiteface has not passed, mt that this month is the most desirable in he year. The atmosphere is so clear that here seems no limit to the view. Lab Jntario and the White Mountains are plain- r seen without the aid of a glass, whlh lie gorgeous tints of autumn lend a thou- sand charms to the ever wild and beautiful new. p H —On the 19th, a little daughter of Mr. md Mrs. Sylvester Mibill Was burned t< Jeath by her clothes takina; fire from th. stove. Her age was five and a half years. ^ To THE LADIES OF PLA-crsBrRGH AND V ICINITT. —As very many of you are up- m the point of buying a sewing machine, t would suggest to you, that you call at Durroom -over Brenan's store, Margaret street, and examine the Improved Wheeler & Wilson, before purchasing.

H. C. MABTDT, M. D. Burlington. Leaving the Bast and arriving at Chicago or Indianapolis, how shall we reach tb*- West ? The best line is acknowledged to b« the C. B, & Q., joined together with thi B. & M. Railroad by the Iron Bridge at Burlington and called the Burlinglo; Route. The main route running to Omaha, coo necta with the great Pacific Roads, and forms to-day the leading route to Caliform The Middle Branch, entering Nebraska Plattsmouth, passes through Lincoln, thr State Capital, and will this year be finished Fort Kearney, forming the shortest route across the continent by over 100 miles. Another branch of the B. M., diverging at Red Oak, falls into a line running down the Missouri through St. Joe to Kansas City, and all Kansas. Passengers by this route to Kansas, see Illinois, Southern Iowa, and Missouri, and by a Blight divergence, can see Nebraska also. Lovers of fine views should rei the Burlington Route, for its towns \high- gleaming from afar,\—its tree-fringed streams—its rough bluffs and quarries—its corn-oceans stretching over the prairies f ui ther than the eye can reach. Land-buyers will be wire for they have friends among the two thou- sand who have already bought farms from George Harris, the Land Commissioner the B. & M. R.
