'ui at hia late home in Chester this af ternoon. A number of our citizens, including Judge Smalley, V. S. District Judge; wen Stannard Collector cf Customs; J. A. Ar- ihnr Tan.. Demit Collector : R. W. Chase. Esq., and others took train this morning, to at tend the same. Mr. JBigelow went yesterday, lite Late Hugh H. Henry. The brief telegram in our paper yesterday morning, announcing the death of Eon. Hugh H. Henry, at his home in Chester, on Saturday - last, was doubtless noticed with sorrow by a large number of our readers who were person- ' ally acquainted with him. ' He was born in Chester, Oct. 18, 1814, and was consequently in matured manhood at the time of his death, which we understand was the result of an apoplectic attack. He graduated at Dartmouth College in 1833, where he was a col lege mate cf our townsmen, J. D. Hatch, Esq , and Rer. Dr. Worcester. His father (whose name.Hugh Horace, he bore), dying a few years after, he inherited a large fortune, with the farm of his lather, upon which he always there after resided. Mr. Henry entered early upon political life. la 18-39 he first represented his town in the Legislature, and, though but twenty- five, was among the most influential members of a Bouse which numbered many strong men. Few men are controlled by more earnest and aealous convictions than was Mr. Henry, and no man eould be more open and frank in their expression. He was aa ardent politician origin ally a Jackson Democrat," though hia hatred of slavery carried him, in 1848, into the Free Soil" ranks and to the support of Van Buren and Adams. . After that futile political movement, be resumed his old party relations. r He was Chairman of the Democratic State Committee dating the campaign vhicb ended in the election of Franklin Pierce, and he remained with the Democratie party till 1854, when the Kansas-Nebraska : question arousing ,; his thorough anti-alavery principles, he at once joined the Republican party, of which he was a devoted and working member to the hour of his death. In 1860 he was one of the delegates of this State to the Chicago Convention, and though no one knew better than he that Mr, Seward was the choice of Vermont for the Presidency, he saw clearly that Mr. Seward's nomination j would be fatal to the success of the party, . and with the earnestness of absolute conviction, and j with all the vigor of his energetic nature, he threw his influence for the nomination of Mr. Lincoln. He labored untiringly to that end, not only in his own but with other delegations. He was confessedly one of the most marked and in-, fluential members of that noted and remarkable Convention, and contributed largely to its grand . result. '-''' o - i In 1865 Mr. Henry was appointed, by President Lincoln, United States Marshal for Vermont, and was the incumbent of the office when he died. ' We have it from ample testimony, that he discharged his official duties to the eminent satisfaction of both the Court of which he was the officer and the public whose faithful servant he was. During the memorable Fenian raid in the summer of 1866, Mr. Henry was in a position of responsibility such as none of his prede-! eessora in the United States Marshalship had been called on to fill. The stoppage and seizures of the Fenian arms ; the control of the United States troops placed at his disposal ; the arrest of the Fenian commander ; and the sending of the rank and file of the Fenian army to their homes, after the failure of their crazy venture, Involved some delicate and difficult duties. Jhat the honor of the Government was maintained, and that fifteen hundred reckless men returned quietly to their homes, without damage done to life or property in Vermont," was largely due to the good, judgment and efficient action of Mr. Henry ; and it was a striking evidence of his tact that he fulfilled his duties efficiently without incurring the personal hostility of the men who attributed the failure of their enterprise to his action as an officer of the Government Mr. Henry representei Chester six rimes between 1839 and 1862. He was com-monly, during his later terms of service, chairman of the Committee on Claims, in which his independence and integrity were of recognized service ; and was always an influential member, taJerested in everything touching the publie intents ts, and commonly successful when he had a fomi to make. He was elected to the State fieaata 4o 18S4, and was a prominent Senator. "When not a member of either .House, he was generally in attendance, as aa outside observer, upon the meetings f the General Assembly, till Aha sight of hie tall figure and well-known Cum in the halls of the Capitol and of the Pavilion came to be regularly expected as a constant feature of the sessions. Mr. Henry held many offioes of trust in his town, was a liberal giver to all public objects in his community, and exerted for many years almost a controling interest its affairs. He was a lover of music, especially of vocal music, led in person, for many years the choir of the Baptist church, and was Presi dent of the Black River Musical Association. He entered heartily into the work of building the . Vermont Valley Railroad, from Bellows Falls to Brattleboro, was president of that corporation from first to last, for nineteen years, and was the oldest railroad president in the United States at the time of his death. He had been a director in the Bank of Bellows Falls for many years. Mr. Henry was the uncle of our townsman Geo. H. Bigelow. Esq., whose mother was his sister. He married early his cousin. Miss Henry, and in a debate on a bill prohibiting marriage between cousins, which had his hearty opposition, in the Senate, in 1865, he cited his own oase and the fact that they had raised a family of nine healthy children, all of whom were living, as evidence that such marriages were not always unhappy or unfruitful sirs. Henry died about two years since, and her loss deeply affected Mr. Henry, and bad a perceptible influence on his health. ,--, ,- t ,-b." Mr. Henry was a shrewd and remarkably suooeasful politician. It was not always (though often) our fortune to agree with him as to meas ures and candidates ; but we bear willing testi mony to the fact that he was always an honorable, fair, and courteous opponent, As such, and as a patriotic, public-spirited, ana Honest man, we esteemed him living, and desire to recall nothing else in his death. Few men had a wider circle of acquaintance in Vermont, and to all who knew him the news of his sudden decease will come with a sad shock. His personal qualities attracted to him strongly the affection and esteem of hia many mends, He was true, irreproachably honest, generous- hearted, frank, and out-spoken. A o man ever questioned the integrity, or had any doubts as to the opinions or principles of Hugh H. Henry. To his friends, as to his political principles, he was ever faithful ; to his enemies andr those whom he distrusted he came up to the commend ation of Dr. Johnson, as a good hater." In both respects, however, as a lover or a hater, he was a true and honorable man. TheJHoIlday.Trade, TUB JEWELRT STORES. Inasmuch as jewelry atores contribute in no email degree to the pleasures of Christmas and New Year's, it may be well to mention that E. B.

We have had the privilege this forenoon of examining and hearing one of these celebrated pianos, now first introduced in this region, and announced more at length by the agent Mr. Powers, in cur advertising columns. Though it was just opened, and not yet warm, and though showing to poor advantage in a room altogether too small to allow of its full effect , a very brief hearing of it under the bands of Mr. S. C. Moore satisfied us, and we presume all who heard it, that it is much superior in fullness and power of tone, to ordinary instruments of its siz?. The bass notes were especially full end strong, and the upper notes brilliant The great peculiarity in these pianos, is the mode in which the strings are strung ; at once increasing the sonoious quality of the tones, and by distributing the strain equally to all parts of the frame, adding greatly, as is claimed and as it seems but reasonable to believe, to the durability of the instru ment.' We should say that a piano constructed on such a plan, could not but retain its quality and remain in tune longer than instruments constructed in the ordinary way, and the testi monials are abundant and convincing that such the case, in' actual use. The particular in strument we refer to is of the " orchestral " size, and a very handsome piano, and we without hesitation advise any who are thinking of purchasing a piano, as doubtless some of our readers are at this time, to call on Mr. Powers and examine it. . , . . , WIXOOSK1 ITEMS. The Good Templars at Winooski have leased Baxter's Hall in this village, and are putting it in thorough repair for their own use and for public uses generally. This is the only public Hall in the village, and when put in order will supply what has long been needed at Winooski They propose to hold a festival at the Hall on Wednesday evening, Dec 22, to raise funds for the above purpose. Tableaux, literary exercises, music, refreshments, etc. , are on the programme, and. a good time is anticipated. Prof. Holmberg's band furnishes the music ; Their festival last summer ought to convince the most skeptical that the Good Templars know how to get up a good thing. A dispatch sent from Richford, Vt., at 4 o'clock p. m , reached its destination at Winooski about 10 o'clock the next day, time, 18 hours, or four times as long as is necessary for a passenger to come through.

The article which we copy below from a Mon treal paper, contains some suggestive facts. The Portland merchants are showing commendable enterprise in opening new avenues of trade be tween their city and the West, the progress of which we watch with interest as connected with important Vermont interests. -But it must be owned after ail, as is urged by Mr. Poor, that Montreal is, and is io it, the great , city of the St Lawrence; and the true outlet for the commerce of the Great West is by the St Lawrence, and a thip canal from Lachine to Lake Cham- plain 'ft '?.:rfl5'--:'- : Montreal and Ogdensbckgh. Our old friend, Mr. John A. Poor, one of the fathers of the railway connection between this city and Portland, is, we see, doing battle strongly for the interests of his child. The Portland papers are just now much occupied with able communications from his pen, intended to demonstrate the advantages of the Montreal connection, and the folly of any attempt to rival it by a connection with Uguensburgn, suca as the ugdensburgn people are proposing to the citizens of Portland. Mr. roor of course, and we have no doubt very sincerely, repudiates anything like hostility to Ogdensburgb, but seeks to point out to bis fellow-citizens that they have no interest in in curring a debt to serve Ugdensburgn without creating the slightest gain for themselves. He says that the Ogdenaburgh road grew out of the failure of Boston in 1844 and 1845 to obtain connection with Montreal, which city at that time preferred the Portland route to the sea But there was a substantial reason at that period which no longer exists for hoping much for that particular method of reaching the Lake trade. though it was, alter an, oniy me second choice of these who made it. The running of the rapids with large vessels, and the line of Ocean steamers which now come weekly to Montreal were not then in existence, and there was, there fore, some ground for hoping that large vessels which could not descend the rapids or the 1st Lawrence might discharge at l Ogdensburgb.. But all that, as Mr. Poor points out, is now at an end. Steamers of large draft come from the lakes throueh to this city, and here meet Ocean steamers of the first class, and find railway accommodation to transport such produce as is destined for New England or the Lower Ports by land. Ogdensburg, therefore, has none of those advantages which confer pre-eminence upon Montreal, and cannot have them, as they depend upon geographical considerations. Ogdensburgb it is true has fine wharves and deep water alongside of tuem; but this may be had at numerous other places along the bank of the St Lawrence and Lake Ontario, and yet no one thinks that all these points can command railways. ' Montreal is, says Mr. Poor, and must be the great city of the St Lawrence; its destiny being determined for it by circumstances like the destinies of New , York, Buffalo and Chicago. Experience comes to the aid of reasoning to justify this statement, for in 1844 when Ogdensburg was but a name Montreal was already a place of 40,000 inhabitants, and the efforts to create a great city at the head of the rapids during the twenty-nine years which have since elapsed has only shown their vanity. In 1840 the whole township in which Ogdensburg is situated had but 6,719 inhabitants. These increased under the stimulus afforded hy the railway to 7,735 in 1850; but in 1860, there were including the oity " of Ogdensburgb still only 10 797. An Ogdensburgb. paper- indeed puts the present population of that place at 11,000; but even then, says Mr. Poor, Montreal which Kad 40,000 Inhabitants in 1840 had 108,606 in 1061, and has probably 160,000 to-day. Moreover, Ogdensburgb has no railway communication westward .except the Grand Trunk.which the Ogdensburg interest puts for wardas being equally available to themselves as to Montreal, but is replied, is the same as for a man without shelter to boast of the convenience of bis neighbor's house; the Grand Trunk being naturally unwill ing to serve a connection which reduces its own mileage, and having a road with far better grades for the grain trade than the Ogdensburg Road possesses. The total increase in the quantity of grain received at Ufdensburgb during a period of eight years, was only from 2,708,898 bushels (flour reduced to grain) to 4,124.176. This table, however, omit the year 1868, and Mr. Poor intimates that if that year had been given. it would have shown a very small business, t The attempt which Mr. Poor has set himself to resist is that of some persons who desire Portland to pledge its credit for the construction of a railroad from Portland to Ogdensburg, through the Lamoille valley of Vermont ; and he urges among other considerations against that course, besides its futility, its ingratitude The Grand Trunk road has, he says, made Portland the port for a line of steamers throughout the winter, and it would be anything but honorable treatment, now that the Canadian line has passed through a period of great depression and is expecting at last to do a prosperous business,- that Portland should even endeavour to put up a rival.

SENATE si.i atoa scutraz's CIVIL SERVICE bill Senator Bchurs's civil service bill provides, as he explained, for the creation of a civil ser vice board, whose business it will be to examine the qualifications of applicants for office with a single eye to their fitness to disjharire ths duties of the place they apply for. It provides, also. that tne appointee shall undergo a year or prob ation m otnoe, during which his superior will have ample time to discover whether he possesses those practical qualities necessary to make an emmem o nicer, me appointing power. How ever, bay remove the officer before the ex piration of the tear. The bill distinguishes ia toe civil service two classes of officials, those ap pointed by the rreeident by ana with the advice of tbe senate, and those who, as inferior officers, work under the directirn ot the former class. Tbe present measure includes the whole of Jenekes' bill, and goes one step further, by ap plying a somewhat similar rule to offices to be nlled by Presidential authority. In cases of applicants for country Post offioes. etc.. the civil service board may, by general rules, determine tne ntness or the candidates for certain offioes by mere general inquiries ; but in this general class of cases, the board is to ascertain by inquiry or examination, or both combined, the fitness of the applicant tor the duty or the place ; and the President may make his selection of officials from among the whole nu i.ber recommended by the board, the bill further provides that all offioeis aireauy in service upon the oreaUon of tbe board. except the class covered by Jenekes bill, shall bold omce tor a term of five years from the date or tueir commission ; but tbe f resident's ao pointments made afterwards in pursuanoe of the bill, shall De tor a term or three years, and no removal in the former class shall take place ex cept on trial and determination of the case by the board ; but any inefficient officer among these may be removed by the board, and the vacancy thus created shall be filled, not for the unexpired term, but for a full term of five years.
