The Penny Press in Dayton.
The Immense popularity of the Pbcss In
Dayton, greatly annoys a oertain Mr. Speil
man, who perambulates the streets of that
flournUhlng town, now and then, with a few
oopies of some of the Cinolnnatl papers. He
says that the Pansi has injured the circulation
of other papers "by being coaxed on the people
on aooonnt of Its oheapneis." ''Ob, Jehoso
phstl" alnt that an idea?
Can we help it if the peopla'conolude that
the Pnr Pribb is the cheajea andbest
paper oat? and is it reasonable to. suppose
that we would feel unhappy at such a result?
We are inclined to think that thus coaxing
itself into favor with the people, is a way it
has got, and that this "ardent" carrier of
"the other Cincinnati paperi," as he faoi
tiovsly styles himself, had better lot it circu
late it has such a coaxing way nil on ac
count of its cheapness.
Ohio Journal of Education.
The love we bear to common schools, the
regard we have for the Ohio State Teacher's
Atioeiation, the speoial relation we once bore
to the Ohio Journal of Education, the merits of
the paper under its present editorial manage
ment, by W. T. CoGGMBiiLL now State
Librarian the earnestness of our wish for its
luooesi, exhibited not only In. words, induoes
us to ask, through the Piknt Pbrsb, for an
increased subscription to this exoellent Educa
tional Monthly. Teachers, Boards of Ex

Commissioners, promote a useful enterprise by
remitting one dollar to the Ohio Journal of

The Debut in our City of a Home Lady
of Culture—The Opera-house Reopening.

Varian James, will, with able musical assist
ance, make her debut in a Qrand Vocal Con
cert, to-morrow night, at Pike's Opera-house.
Her voice is a soprano, of good oompiss and

Arnault, in Boston, she repaired to Florence,
Italy, and was then a pupil of the oelebrated
RomanL What with further tuition at the
Conservatoire, Paris, and at Nsples, she made
her dtlut at Florence in the opera of Lt Xaria
dt Short. She was greeted cordially. The fash
ionables at White Sulphur, in our own State,
' were highly delighted with her bird-like long,
, her beauty and polished manners. let a large
and appreciating audience attend to-morrow
night, and give this accomplished lady t sub
stantial benefit. '
A Distinguished Divine Drowned at
Niagara Falls.
of the melancholy death of Rev. Johm A. Mc-
- CurM, D. D., Pastor of the Presbyterian
Church atMaysville, Kentucky, and one of the
ablest and most eloquent divines on the Con
tinent. This sad event happened in the Nl-
agara River, about two miles above the Falls,
where the Rev.JDr. C. had gone to bathe;
. and being alone, and ignorant of the swiftness
ef the current,..was speedily oarrled out beyond
hit power to return. No tidings of him were
obtained after ha left the hotel at Tonawanda,
alrMmlloi above the Falls whither he had
rone for his health, onltha 6th until his cloth
lng was found on the shore, on the" 10th, and
identified by his name upon a handkerchief.
. .His body was recovered below the Falls on the
i. 22d, and is now on the way to Maysvllle for
interment. The most intense anxiety for his
fate has existed there for two weeks past, with
out any definite intelligence, until the 21st.
In the mean time, two special messengers had
been sent cut In search of tidings from him.

Chablrs Mackay'b Idea op Nuoaiu. In
reading tbe Scotch Poet's printed book of
travels, as reprinted by Harper, we observed a
fatal typographical blunder in a portion of his
description of Niagara: "But my feelings,
in gating upon it, day after day and evening
after evening, were not. so much those of as
tonishment, as of an overpowering sense of law,
(awe) mingled with a delicious ploasure, that
Ailed my whole being, and made my brain
ditiy with delight." . ,
Lcmbkr Hjasvre. To And the amount of
lumber in a piece of soantling, multiply the
width and thickness together, in luches, and
then by the length, in feet, and divide by
twelve, will give you tbe amount. Divide the
number of feet in a board or load of lumber by
twelve, and you have the number of cublo foet
it oontains. It is a convenient plan, when the
lumber is taken from the carriage, to mark
with a piece of red chalk or keel, the number
of feet in eaoh board or scantling, which will
save you the trouble of again measuring when
sold.
One thing very plainly appears by the pub

nothing, are subjected to the heaviest kind of
tax. The city property Dears quite an unuue
proportion of public burdens to that borne in

Hon. John W. Davis, Deceased.
The announcement of the death of thi gnrf
tleman, at his residence in Carlisle, Indiana,
reaches us ia a paragraph of the telegraphlo
dispatch from Washington City. He was a
native of Cumberland County, Penn., studied
medioine in Baltimore, Md., and came ttonoe
to Indiana.
AN INCIDENT OF HIS EARLY PUBLIC LIFE.
Judge Smith, who had been United fctaws
Senator or Indiana, told a gossiping story of
the youthful aspirant for publlo offloe. He
says when the Indiana Legislature met for the
first time, in the then Newbtate-nouse, ne 00-
served a large, fine-looking man, with some
disappointment, mark down eleven on the wall
after the name of Job W. Davis, on the call
of the ballot for Chief Clerk. Somebody else
bad received the remainder of the one hundred
ballots oast. I saw his dlsappointmentmsrked
visibly in his face; he stood alone. I stepped
p to him with a smiling oountonance "lou
are yet to be a great man." "What do you
mean?" "I moan that you got eleven votes
for olerk, precisely the number I got at Cory-
on for the same office." Mr. Davis laugnea,
and we soon became acquainted.

which oflioe he sorved with ability, lie was
