Wc call the attention of our subscri
bers to the new law requiring them
to pay tv postage of twenty cents per
annum upon their county pape- from
the 1st of July. Let no subscriber
prepay for more than n quarter (three
months) at a time. The question is
still unsettled, and while the act goes
info force June 30th, we are not with
out hope that the public feeling will
le so manifested that a change will be
?fTectcl la tome way or other. In
nix months, at the farthest, the impost
ought, to be. -swept a way, and as the
ongress will meet in December there
Is every reason why this view should
be accepted by all who" give the mut

Death of Mrs. Polly McCabe.
It is our painful duty to chronicle
t!i death -of Mrs. Pour McC'abe,'
ronsort of Cap- it. T. McCabe, who
ireat lied tier last on Sunday, the zzn
JusU, after great sufforing for the past
three weeks. She was aged 73 years,
C months and 18 days. '
-A we learn from Gen. G. D.- Hen
dricks, Mrs. McCabe was the second
tl.-mglitvr of Wm. Bruce, the original
proprietor of the town of Eaton. .Her
father emigrated from Bourbon coun

months residence at Allisonville, Ma

highly esteemed citiaen of btir town,
and whose death,7 though' not unex
pected, from the infirmities of age,
causes a gloom of sadness with all
our citizens, old and young. , '
We deeply sympathise with mourn
ing friends. .
Five citizens of Preble county inci
dentally met on the side walk in front
of our office, one day last week, whose

The "Eaton Harmonia."
Ikcy, the engineer m chief of the
"Tumble-bug,", is in sore, trouble
He waileth, and his symptoms indi
cate "worms." His bowels likewise
rumble unpleasantly. Yea, he hath
mental aud moral strabisimus. Ikey
was not the recipient of a complimen
tary to the Musical Festival, at Ack-
erman's Garden, therefore he pro
nounces the Festival a congregation
of drunken ess,and demands that Ack
erman shall be declared a nuisance
and his Garden given over to the ven
geance of the pious wolves of Ikey's
complexion. The fact of the business
is simply this : The singing Associa
tion of our town, (and it is a credit to
the place) on Monday the 16th, gave
a Festival at Ackerman's Garden, to
which all "orderly, decent, and music
loving persous were admitted. -'Beer,
Native Wine, Lemonade and Ice
Cream, with cake, constituted the re
freshments; First class music, both
vocal and instrumental was provided,
aud to those who danced, ample facil
ties were " afforded. The entertain
ment was pleasant, agreeable and or
derly. A large number of our very
best citizens were in attendance. Tho
Mayor awl a portion of his family,
prominent and wealthy members of
our mercantile community, . Physi
cians, Lawyers, public officers, me
chanics,. Tradesmen and day laborers,
with wives,, daughters, sisters, and
sweethearts,-were there, and univer
sal good feeling and good order pre
vailed. Aud'yet, Ikey is not happy.
The "Bug" would have nobodj' but
Germans admitted to future Festivals.
How about the colored friends, Ikey ?
Several very respectable colored peo
ple were present the last time, and as
they arc neither German or- Anglo
feaxon, it ,vijl he a valuable addition
to the us.-fill knowledge of the world.
if Ikey would guage their bellies and.
iuform the people of their capacity for
beer. ;Isai:r puts the average German
as good for 50 glasses the American
is represented at i, or- a-furus drunk

It does seem strange' that in this
age there are so many ; Inhuman be
ings who don't realize that the ani
mals that do our bidding are entitled
to any consideration. They give an
exhibition of their weak-mindness,by
punishing the animals without exer
cising the least judgment, and the
result is, that many horses, naturally
of kind and gentle dispositions, be
come vicious in the extreme. We
frequently witness exhibitions of cru
