Over one hundred and fifty newspapers have been discontinued within a few months. No business has suffered more from the hard times, than that of publishing newspapers. Advertising' has either fallen off or the price seriously reduced. Very many of those who advertised last year, have failed in business, and thcamount due is almost a dead loss. Others who have property cannot meet their bills as they become due and the printer has to suffer with the rest.

On Wednesday last, on that dirty, blowey, disagreeable day, there was a pic-nic at Ceder Grove, near Adams Ferry, Panton. Some three hundred, led by two drums and two fifea, march ed from the meetinghouses to the Grove, where they had a good time generally, the strong wind not disturbing them at all, but on the whole it was rather pleasant to hear it sweep through the trees. Such wild music is sometimes delightful.

The ladies had provided just such food as every body wanted, and when the tables were pet, and all things ready, it disappeared rapidly. Speech es were then made by Rev'ds Warner and Par ker, Methodists, and Sawyer, Baptist, also by J. R. Converse, who made a glowing war speech The pic-nic was a decided success and richly on joyed. A dozen guns or more were fired.

Would that we had been there. A Preacher. A fellow suspected of being a spy, lately went to Fort Monroe, claiming to be a missionary preacher from the South. He was placed under the care of Capt. Leach at the Rip Raps, a 6ort of penal colony, containing prisoners and doubtful characters.

On he was invited to entertain his select congregation. He concluded to give a history of man, instead of preaching a regular discourse. Capt. thought liest to have tiie missionary earn his rations, and so set him to work. One moraine he sent for the Captain and when he went to him, he found him clasping his head with both hands, lie said that he believed be was just coming out of i quaking at the sound ol' the long roll (the call one of his crazy spells.

te i 1 Pt: itO 1 'c ttt: cei foa of! i tai 4 OND VT. REGIMENT. Camp Lyon, Georgetown Heights, D. August 14th, 18.61. Last Friday night a volunteer scouting party was started in our Company, and my love ot adventure prompted me to join them.

We started west, in the direction ot the enemy's lines, aoout 6 P. just as a rain commenced falling, which increased in violence, and continued through the greater part of the night. After becoming com pletely drenched we tound shelter in a staoie near a dwelling, unknown to the occupants, and after drawing the damp charges from our guns and reloading, lay down on the dry manure and litter and rested until 3 o'clock the next morning. We then started out through the woods and fields, heard the revilie beat distinctly in the rebel camp, frightened in one of their pickets, and coming out on the turnpike road to Fairfax, fell back to the line of mix pickets, some two or three miles from Bush Hill. Here we remained until daylight Sunday morning, when 14 of us sallied out, and skirting through the woods and cornfields, heavy with dew, we came out again on the Fairfax road about 14 miles from our last camp.

Directly the clatter of horses' feet betokened the approach of Cavalry just beyond a rise in the road a short distance from us, and we sprang over the fence as quick as possible to get out of sight, but they caught a glimpse of us and turned about on a retreat at OouoHs quioii. ucjuugcu vmu we ramie with the horses' tracks that there could not have been more than three or four of them. Believing the old proverb about discretion, to be true, we started for home before a large force would be on the move to cutoff our retreat, and arrived safely at our old quarters about noon. In the afternoon an alarm, which brought us all out in order for a few minutes, indicated that the enemy were roving and restless, but, for the present, not dangerous. Monday morning I washed mv remaining shirt and drawers, button ino- mv coat un close to hide the deficiency, but found myself in the condition of Mr.

Metalini's "demnit.ion moist bodj-," lor we received march ing orders and I was obliged to put them on before they had time to dry. I did not suffer much inconvenience from this circumstance, however, for an opportune shower came up just as we started and wet ray clothes uniformly throughout. Arrived at Alexandria just at dusk and afterrcsting an hour or so, pushed on to the lon bridge on the Virginia side, over a horrible road, muddy, rutty and uneven, and as we arrived at the bridge about 11 o'clock, I judged the distance to be about milet: from Alexandria. We were permitted to lie down on the bridge until 3 o'eloek Tuesday morn ing, but I did not enjoy the most refreshing in the world in my moist condition and without a blanket, I got well chilled. It was broad day when we passed through Washington, the morning was fine, and the trees and parks looked beautifully the air felt cool and pleasant.

At that early hour the streets were still, and all seemed quiet in and about the pub lic buildings and iJresiaent House. Arrived at Georgetown, a short halt was ordered and bread distributed, which we all devoured greedily. I washed my rations down with what tbe woman called a worth of coffee (6 cents) of which I got a canteen full, such as it was. A forward movement utHnit 3 miles brought us to the camp of the 3d Vt. Regiment and we are now attached to the same brigade under Col.

I had a pleasant visit with Morgan, McCarter, and such few ncqua intances as I found in the Regiment. A heavy tain, unpleasantly frequent, lately, wet us down tl lorougldy Wore we could get our tents pitched, but to-day I am enjoying the unusual luxury of dry clothes.

A letter from the Western part of Maryland opposite Picdmont.dated 13th says that federal scouts last Sunday night succeeded in capturing three notorious secession bridge burners at New Creek. The Charleston Courier states that the privateer Jeff Davis has captured a large Philadelphia brig from Havana, and taken her into Brunswick, in the absense of the blockading brig Terry. The Richmond Examiner says that official sources indicate that 210,000 confederates were in the field at the time ol the passage of the bill authorizing the President to call out four hundred thousand volunteers.

We have recently received a letter signed "One of the Tigers," reflecting on prominent members of the Vcrgennes Company.

PIC-NIC AT CROWN POINT. There was a Pic-Nic at Crown Point, on Satur day last, by the citizens of East and West Addi son, honor ot Uapt. oolon ivaton. There were about four hundred present. A table was set in the grove, three hundred feet long, and well cov ered with the good thing, such as Addison Ladies know how to get up.

Ample justice was done io the -viands, for it was one of heaven's own days, the air fuil of life, and the eatables went with a rest. After refreshments, speeches were ade by Alexis T. Smith, Capt. Solon Eaton and Rewell Converse. Three cheers were then given for Capt.

Solon Eaton, Alexis T. Smith and the ladies who furaished the dinner. Mr. Smith is spoken of as having been peculiarly happy in his remarks, moving many to tears. The company now went to Crown Point and took the boat, and crossed to Chimney Point, when the older portion left and returned home, but the young people went to Port Henry, vis ited the Iron Works, At 0 P.

M. they again took the boat and crossed to Field's Bay, and from there returned to their several homes, well pleased with their pic-nic and excursion. Thres Men Killed. On Thursday of last week, the steamer Resolute was reconoitering at Mathias Creek, when a batteau was seen below the steamer, filled wi th barrels. A boat was sent with six men to bring it off.

As the boat touched the beach, rebels concealed in the woods fired on the men killing three and dangerously wounding another The Resolute fired into the midst of the rebels, one shot of canister and one of schrapncll, which was thought to have done con-! eiderable damage. The rebels fled from their ambush. The Reliance came up and fired upon them as they fled. Shocking Accident. On Monday morning last Noah Field of West Addison, 12 years, son of George E.

Field, fell off of a load of hay while in motion, and a wheel passed over his head, killing him almost instantly. His head was shock ingly crushed. Since the above, was put in type, we learn that the boy was driving the team, and had stopped it and was about getting off in front, when the standard broke, and he fell, on to-the horses, which frigtened them so that they started throwing him to the ground, and in such a position that the wheel passed over the top of his head, fearfully crushing it, Schrapnell. Shells which contain a quantity of musket balls, which when the shell explodes, are projected still further, Ambulance. A flying hospital a moving hospital first introduced into tbe French armies.

Chas. B. Rice, wounded in the leg; John Uowan, wounded in the loot: J. Uolton, wounded in thigh M. Pratt, arm amputated J.

Potter Investigating Committee, Upward of one hundred and seventy secessionist sympathi zers have already been routed out of the departments, where they were receiving pay of the gov ernment, while they were furnishing aid and com fort to the rebels. Who will say that there has not been gxd cause for newspaper criticism The end is not yet. Important Arrest.

S. violent secesh er, was arrested on the arrival of the Persia with forty thousand pounds sterling in Bank of Eng land notes, the proceeds of a loan for the Confed erate States. Serrill is a New Orleans man, a liout 50 years -of age and very wealthy. A number of letters and important papers were also lound in his posession. Mr.

Serrill claims to be a resident of Philadelphia. On his passage home, having forgotten that "discretion is the better part of valor," he imprudently boasted of of his success in obtaining a loan, and so our officers would not let him alone, but uabbed him before he left the vessel. He blustered somewhat but he was compelled to submit to an overhauling. In his trunks weie found several bundles of momentous letters, and in a belt around his body, forty thousand pounds, nearly two hundred thousand dollars. Alas fur the poor rebel soldieis, how they will miss those pleasant looking notes when pay day comes, and how the bogus government will mourn for them.

As to Mr Sccesher Serrill, lie can have the privilege of a home "in durance vile," for some time to come. We have seen it suited that the notes are worthless unless signed by Serrill. It may be so, but the importance ol the seizure lies in tht fact that the rebels cannot use tliem. Our Government can have all the money it wants. Trouble with TnE 79th New York Rr.ciMENT, and 2nd Mai.nk.

The New York 70th, the Highlanders, a Scotch regiment, refused to obey orders which resulted in the arrest of thirty of the ringleaders. On Friday last, 110 of the regiment were missing. Sixty-live members of the 2nd Maine regiment, have also been put under arrest for insubordination. The throe month's difficulty is said to be at the bottom of all this insubordination, regiments enlisted for the war, claiming the same privilege as the three months' men. It is reported that influeutial Democrats from New York, have been among the soldiers and made them believe that the militia were not under obli gations to serve more than three months.

Of course such scamps are traitors whatever their professions; and they should be severely dealt with. Although the soldiers were deceived, pun iehment is requisite to secure dicipline and to prevent other regiments from following the per nicious example. From The steamship Bohemian arrived at Farther Point on Sunday last. The London Times is bitterly sarcastic on the battle of Bull Run. It sug gests that the southern nut is too hard for the North to crack, It intimates that the question of the blockade in America may involve England in some difficult complication.

Lord Palmerston on the last day of the session of Parliament, sta ted his views on the blockade. lie remarked in effect that if one vessel was allowed to enter a blockaded Port by the payment of duties, from that hour the blockade is raised. A belligerent may seal up a Port, but if he lets one vessel in his right is gone. An anonymous advertisement appears in the Liverpool Post inviting a shilling subscription for a testimonial to Gen. Beauregard in admiration of his generalship.

It is reported, so says the London Herald, that Louis Napoleon on the receipt of the news of the battle of Bull Run, decided to acknoledge the Southern Confed eracy. A doubtful report and lacks confirmation By the Edinburgh and Bremen, we learn that the news of the defeat of our troops at Bull Run caused a profound sensation in England. North ern Americans were much depressed and the Southerners correspondingly elated. There was al most a collision in the Liverpool News-Room Mr. Russell in his letter to the London Times con cerning the route at Bull Run, calls it a coward ly, miserable, causless panic, and disgraceful to men in uniform, lie denies that such men de serve the name of Boldiers.

He gives graphic de tails of the battle. The Union Democratic Convention which met at Montpelier on Wednesday last, nomintaed for Governor, Andrew Tracy, of Woodstock for Lieut. Governor, Hon. Levi Underwood, of 'Burlington; for Treasurer, J. T.

ZsF Several members of the Middlebury Company 1st Vermont Regiment, and of the Brand in Company, belonging in Vcrgennes and vicinitv, arrived here on Saturday evening last.
