Death of an Old Citizen.
Jonathan 13rine, rjr., lamih
arly known to everybody in
this county as Father Brine,
died at bis late residence in
Mc Arthur, Jan. 3d, at 1 o'clock
1J. Al., of desease of the kid
neys, tDperinduced by old age",
lie was born in Massachusetts,
Nov. 15th, 1796, and was con
vequenlly in tbe seventy-eighth
year of his age. lie came to
this State when he was eight
years old, settling iu Rutland
township, Meigs county, where
he lived 20 years, moving
thence to Marion county, and
from there to this county -in
1820, where he has since re
sided, lie enjoyed nearly filly
lour years of married life, and
leaves a wife and lour children,
all grown up and married.
Mr. Brine was an honest
conscientious man, 'of bind dis
position, never banned a man
inteulionally, and consequent
ly was universally loved and
respected. He has been a
member of theUhnstiau church
forty-six years, was a preacher
ot'tbat denomination, and nany
incidents illustrative of his
zeal are related, some of which
we have published heretolore.
U3 was elected Recorder of
this county in 1856, aud served
five terms 15 years retiring
oi liis own tree will in 1871, be
ing too old, as he said to per
form the duties of the office.
As there has been some com
plaint that writing was ne
glected in our schools we ex
amined the copy books in Mrs.
Rich's and Miss Tucker's rooms
last week. We aro ol opinion
that those who complain will
have to brush up their chirogra
phy, or they will find they have
dropped behind their children.
All showed more progress than
we thought could reasonably
be expected. In fact we were
most agreeably surprised. Even
in Mrs. Rich's school, where
the pupils range only from
eight to twelve ) ears of age,
there was not one book which
might be classed as lad or
cureless, aud not half a dozen
that showed a blot or linger

Thomas is young aud naturally a
little bashful about such things,
and of course we comply. When
lie gets as olii,as we are he will
be used to such events, and not

Georgle, thou wast mild and lovely,
Gentle ks tbe summer breeus
Pleasant as the air of evening;
When It floats among the trees.
Smiling Georgle, thou hast left j
Ne'er more we'll hear thy voice
Though we never will forget thee,
Yet we watch and watch In vain.
Yes; we watch still for thy cutnins,
Look still at the school-room'door,
Think we hear thy sweet voice hum
But ah 1 they say you'll come no
And thy little curly tresses
Never do our eyes now meet,
How we long to have thee with us,
To occupy thy vacautseat.
And Georgle dear, if thou art lonely
When the evening sky Is red,
Think of us and of us only
And get thee to thy little bed.
Ah I old school-mate, how we mUs
How we miss thy cheering smiles;
But thou art far, so far, from us;
For they say 'tis 'bout three miles.
But ah! we miss thy dinner bucket,
Sitting on the window sill;
But wo know you're In the cornfield,
Wast though put there 'gainst thy
Twas thy father who bereft us
Of thy joyous presence now
Could he not have spared you to us;
Or. did you want to learn to plow?

From the Xenia Gazette.
Some Useful Information.
A question olten asked And
so often unanswered is, what is
the real cause of the superior
ity of some Cottage Organs
over others! We olten find
among organs of djflerent
makes but of the same style
and price, that some are much
belter than others: the tone
is not so rough, tbe action is
lighter and quicker, and tbe
ensehlble is 60 pleasing as to
decide us at once in their favor.
The reason the question is not
oftener answered is because
tew persons know the real one,
and it might be said further,
that even few of the manufac
turers themselves know it.
Wood is the only substance
Irom which a good sounding
board has ever yet been made;
and those instruments that
have the least metal used in
their construction are those
which are not only most reson
ant bat also durable. The man
ner in which the reed hoard ol
the best organs is constructed
is what renders them superior
to others. This idea of em
ploying the least metal possi
ble is more fully carried out by
the manufacturers of theEstey
Organ than by any ethers and
as a re8ult,we find in this inetru
ment a purity of tone and a re
sonance unequalled. The pe
culiar maimer of voicing the
reeds is another one ot the chiel
points on which the quality ol
tone depends. An expert can
readily name the make of an
instrument from some peculi
arity in its voicing; t,wo makes
are rarely voiced nlike. Wiihout
doubt the E-itey too is the fi
nest voiced reed instrument in
existence. Years and years ol
experiment and testing haven
been spent by the Esteys on
this point alone, which is
enough of itself to chow how
important it must be. The
tone always remains smooth
and rich. We have never yet
heard of an Estoy, Organ no
matter how old with a wheazey,
brassy tone. It, is pre-eminently
the organ that is built to
