, .We perhaps .owe an apologj to our
readers for want of the usual editorial
variety this week.! We ask your indul
gence, as wo are very busy closing tip
oar affairs as Cloik of Ashland County,
which the people," fortunately for our pe
cuniary interests, have relieved us of, as
well now as hereafter. . We want no more
offices i they cost as much as they aro
worth.' We are a Printer by trade, and
when we go into the office ourself, we
think we can publish as good a paper as
is published in Ohio. .

- SBOCKIXO ACCIDENT.
We regret to learn that one day last
- week " Robert MoxTooTH, an' employee
' in the Steam Mill at Jeromeville, in this
County, .had,, both of his ..legs crushed
while oiling the machinery, and died
In about three hours. - It appears that
it wail necessary for him to go in between
the ".fly-wheel " and pitman . One
of the bolts of the pitman caught his
clothes while- he was stooping over, drew
hia lege in between the' crank and tim
bers a epace of about four inches -
literally: crushing them. '."It is said the
Sbonoa actually made an indentation of
quarter of an inch in the solid timber !
The poor fellow leaves a family to mourn
hia untimely loss.' "'
Last week, Dr. Clark, one of the Di
rectors of thia Road, made a statement
of its eondition. " Whatever misgivings
-there ' may have : been ' relative to the
Hoad heretofore, we think since examin
ing into the facts,' not' only of the exhib
it made in our last issue but from per
sonal inspection of the Books, that there
tf e no doubt but that the Rond has
beuu honestly and judiciously managed.
It Ja a great work, and,, of course,, there
are impediments thrown into the way cal
culated to embarrass the Company. The
slightest 'embarrassment, sometimes, is
sufficient to alarm Stockholders. ' We
freely confess that at one time we were
AmnnTiAt mivcalf Kilt, mnnn
. r-. . ,
examining into the facts we know that
so far all is well. - The financial condi
4ion of the Road is better than any oth
er in Ohio. . ; To prove this we need onlj
refer to the fact, that whilst all the oth
er Rail Roads in the State have been
compelled to b top "work, the Franklin
and Warren goes on in " the even tenor
of its way." : Hard times, as might be
expected, affects it romc. Yet it keeps
moving, and when good times arrive the
oars will commence running.;' No Road
in Ohio haa ever -progressed soKjfar as
this one, upon the subscription of Stock
holders. - This, of itself, speaks loudly
in behalf of . the Road. Whilst oher
Roads have been compelled to pdt tWir
Bonds in market in order to raise funds,
thia Road is able to wait for " the good
time coming ' before a dollar of their
Bonds ,111 be put into market ; The
amount subscribed is sufficient to pre
pare the Road for- the Iron. ' Is this not
better than anj' Road ever attempted to
be built in Ohio ? The facts prove it.
If, then, - this is the act, has not the
Franklin and Warren Rail Road, abet
ter reputation than . any other Road in
the State with eastern- Capitalists? -The
"exhibit of the Company, bo far as
thia County is concerned, ' shows that
there has been expended in our own ter
ritory over $7000 more than there has
Vsaty rmwinil fmm ff r,nrOrhnlrlvn . .Thia
looks a if the bead men were not unwil
ling to venture their capital for our ben
efit. . Jt shows, to bur mind, that they
are determined that the Road slidll be
built, and so says every Stockholder in
Ashland County. It is greatly to the
interest of us all, in a pecuniary point of
view. ' Besides all this, who would live
in. a community now-a-days without a
Rail Road ? . For our part we think we
are1 a few years behind the age, compared
with neighboring Counties who possess
fmrar Aulvs.nta.irea than onra. The Road
can be built if we but' will it. Stock
holders pay up. your Stock, and the Road
will r be pushed forward as far as the
money goes. It will . be remembered
that all the installments became due on
' the 7th day of last November, and but
one half of the Stock subscribed ' haa
been paid in. How can we expect the
work to'eo on, when Stockholders are
so tardy in paying in their Stock ? "
The Managers of the Road intend to
hold ft meeting of the Stockholders in
Ashland sometime next month, when the
fixeeutiYS Committee will be present to
give ny information in regard to the
condition of the Road that may be de
sired. "Let all attend at the time and
judge for themselves.

ASHLAND WOOLEN OTANUFACTU"
We happened over to South Ashland
one day last week-, and accidentally
dropped into the Ashland Woolen Man
ufactory. As long as we have lived in
Ashland, we have never visited this Fac
tory. We looked into all the depart
ments, and found them beyond all pre
vious conception. Mr. Smith, the Man
ager, understands his business; knows
not. only, how to carry it on, but how to
make the best of Cloths, Cassi meres and
Casiuetts. Their business has already
increased to such an extent, that the
Company are prepraing to increase the
Machinery in order to supply the wants
of their customers. Adjoining the Mill
the Company have erected a Business
Office, at which will be found the diffe
rent fabrics manufactured at this Facto
ry. Merchants in Ashland and adjoin
ing; towns, find that (hey can purchase
better Cloths at this Factory, and at
more reasonable rates, than iu eastern
cities. YY e are satisfied that their goods
are all woolen, and, consequently, will
wear much better than goods of eastern
manufacture, and are just as cheap. Iu
this community tee matter lias Lad a
practical test. . Merchants in Ashland,
we daf e say, will ' corroborate what we

jrag- The Cleveland Express says
that the Stark Bank of .Benington Vt.,
which has hitherto been considered one
of the best in the country, was a large
loser by the failure of the Canal Bank of
Cleveland, and Akron Branch Bank of
Akron. The . amount due Stark Bank
by these two Ohio Bank is something
over $100,000, The ability ; of the
RtarV Bank to resume her business, will
depend upon her receiving aid from the
above Banks and other creditors.
So far as concerns " aid from the above
Banks." the prospect is rather a dark
one. If the Bennington victims build
their hopes of ultimate salvation upon
such a sandy bams, they may be set
down as stark mad.

We had glorious weather for Thanks
giving. The cheerful sunlight shone
pleasantly in -upon family gatherings in
many a nappy-nomo, ana tne sharp air
begot corresponding ' appetites for the
feast of fat things which smoked on
every board. .. Poverty was not forgot
ten in the midst of abundance. The
inmates of all our charitable institutions
fared sumptuously, and private benevo
lence sent help to the destitute in every
quarter of the city, whero want and
misery were known to exist. The church
es were crowded in the forenoen, and
large sums were taken in aid of tho poor.
Could the statistics of public and pri
vate charity be collected, it would prob
ably appear that more than $400,000
were given away in this city yesterday,
for benevolent purposes.
During the afternoon I strolled to the
' Five Points 'to -see the children redeem
ed from degradation, ignorance and filth,
by the " Ladies Mission " eat their
Thanksgiving dinner at the " Mission
House " a fine substantial brick , build
ing, standing en the site of tbat den of
prostitution, drunkenness aud misery,
the "Old Brewery." The " Children of
the Mission" some three' hundred in
number were in the midst of their ex
crcises when I went in, and some of the
recitations, especially those of the girls
would have done honor to the pupils of
our best private schools. All these
young ones were taken, literally, from
the gutter, and their clean, healthy, re
spectable appearance, reflected the high
est credit upon the noble hearted wo
men, and excellent pastors bv whom
they have been reclaimed and instructed.
A gesture from Rev. Mr. Larkin, the
superintendent of tho institution was
always sufficient to produce profound si
lence among them, in the midst of their
In the lower part of the building a
large number of ladies and gentlemen
were engaged in carying the viands, and
arranging the tables. Piles of smoking
turkeys, geese and chickens; alps of po
tatoes and apples ; the choicest cuts of
beef ; pies by the score ; enormous plum
cakes; Temples of Liberty in sugar, and
in fact everything edible, that ever a
gourmand could desire, encumbered tho
tables and even the floors of the apart
ments when the work of " dishing up "
was going on. V ften tbe tables in the
schoolroom were sat for the banquet tho
hungry multitude were marched down
from tie chapel, where the singing and
speaking had taken place, and the work
of demolition commenced. It was mar-
ycuoua : sio Knives and tones were
used ; but active teeth and fingers render
ed cutlery unnecessary; where the little
rogues stowed away that vast supply of
solids, and semi solids,' I have not the
slightest idea after they " topped off "
with a corresponding amount of pastry,
and confectionary, aud when at last they
rested from their labors, it seemed to me
that they " rank outwearicd rather than
o ercome." JLne crowds ot well dressed
children who bad come with their pa
rents, and friend eto'seo the little ' Five
Pointers nfeed, looked on with blank
amazeraem' They had never seen such
exploits perfomed before.

giving sent up by those little ones. For
these hardened sinners there is no hope
but the rising generation may be saved ;

the heathenism ' that exists within the

Quite a sensation was occasioned here
by the disclosure of tho fact that Mr.
Dorian, the gallant third ' mate of the
Arctic had been dismissed by Mr. Col
lins, and a certificate of good clyyictcr
denied him.' Mr. Dorian intimated in
his letter to the parents of young Hol
land, that tiring the panic on board the
liquor stores wer-i broken into acd freely
used; and I for this indiscreet state
ment he has belut adrift. A son of
Mr. Collir8 bvihwer taken to defend his
father's conduct in this business, but he
makes a bungling job of it. . Dorian was
the ouly offioer of the Arctic who did his
whole duty, and he has been discharged
without a certificate of good conduct !
These two facts are beyond question.
Comment upon them is superfluous ;
especially as Mr. Dorian in this morn
ing's Times has used upfthe Collins
father and son most essentially.

A salutary reform has just taken place
on the Erie Railroad. No more liquor
is to be sold to the employers of the line
at any of the refreshment stations. The
bars have been removed from the eating
saloons, and notices posted up to the ef
fect tbat liquor can no longer be obtained.
The Erie road has so far had a bad name
for accidents ; the absence of rum will
probably lessen the number of causual-
ties. , .
Times are mending here. Our ship
ments of specie are decreasing ; sound
stocks are rising: and money is easier.

Some excitement was created yester
day, by the discovery that J. S. Norton,
Esq., of this city, a man of great wealth,
had been missing for some 48 hours.
He had willed the great bulk of his real
estate to his grandson, Mr. Carroll. Sus
picions are entertained, which it would
not be prudent to state in print. In the
meantime a rigid investigation is in pro-
cress. The police are satisfied that
there has been foul play.

The trial of Arrison for the murder
ef Allison by an infernal machine
looks damning for the accusod. The
man who made the box identifies Arri
son as the one who employed him, and
the box presented as the one made. An
other witness identifies Arktson as the
man, who, after the box was made, call
ed to have it altered ; the witness picked
out the very piece cf the box in court,
which Arrison himself tried to fix, but
not succeeding, said " Damn the thing,
1 wisu you would nx it ; " -and in an
swer, to the question attbe time by the
witness, as to what the box was for,
Arrison replied "Ask me no questions
and i ll tell you no . lies. An. expert
pronounced documents known to have
been 'written by Arrison, and the letter
received at the Cincinnati Post Office
from Iowa which led to Arrison's de
tection, as the writing of the same man.
A young man also swears that Arrison
is the one who got witness to write the
name of " Mr. Allison," (the murdered
man) ."Marine Hospital, 'corner of

card, which card was produced in court;
and was attached to the fatal box.
