Free of Postage. We have encour
aged our 8ubscrilers to believe the postage
on local papers iu the countv where print
ed, would be repealed. All that we have
had of the sentiment of congress on the
subject this sessiou, has given strength to
this opinion, and the manifest justice of
such a provision J went far to confirm the
belief. Instead of hampering and burden
ing the weekly local papers, they are en
titled to the fostering care of the country.
There Is no defense for the law now in
force imposing a postage tax on a paper
distributed in its own county, within from
to 10 miles of its publication office at the
same rate as a daily brought 500 miles
from the city of New York. If the hope
and glory of the country are in the gener
al diffusion of intelligence, that glory is
due in a greater degree to the provincial
press than to the metropolitan dailies.
Their circulation is much more among the
common people and the spars-ly settled
sections of the country, where rigid econo
my is a necessity. If there is any point.
therefore, where the fostering of the gov
ernment is due, it is just here. The coun
paper, is the paper identified with its
locality and with the interests and prefer
ances ofthe people. Beside, their patron
age is necessarily small, and Ibry are illy
able to be brought into competition with
city weeklies nude up from daily forms,
an equal rate of postage. The fact of
such weeklies, thus made up Irom matter
that costs nothing for the setting, having
been doubly paid for by use in a daily
form, enables the publishers to put them
a merely nominal rate of subscription
Then, if tho government gives them an
equal chance with the little weeklies, not
withstanding the distance carried in the
mails, it is easy to see that the people are
tempted by cheapness and underbidding
abandon their own paper, The compe
tition with a governm-nt discrimination
their favor, becomes an unequal one,
and the county weeklies are left to lan
guish. Every consideration of justice and
fairness, demands that the present law
should be repealed, and the people relieved
of postage upon their home county paper.
We are glad lo see that the recommenda
tion r the p. M. General is in favor of free
circulation. If it i right, as it thus ap
pears, is it not expedient that the matter
should receive the attention of our repre
sentatives in congress at once, and that be
fore the present quarter closes, the people
will feel that a wrong girp hns been re
traced. The postage upon exchanges,
should also le removed. With two bur
dens upon the country weeklies thus re
moved, metropolitan weeklys will lose
some of the vantage ground now occupied
by them, in waging a war f competition
upon their lesspretentious cotemporaries.

Ashtabula Plow Handle Works.
The effort to form a stock company last
week, for the purpose of carrying on the
Handle b-isiness at Ellis's factory, was
not a sneces. Various propositions were
submitted and considered, but there was
not sufficient harmony of opinion upon any
one, for securing its adoption. This result
if final which we hope is not is unforlu
nate in every point of view, but particu
larly, as it defers andpostpones the pre
cedent and inauguration of these institu
tions In our village for manufacturing pur
poses. The permanent establishment
prosperity and growth depends upon the
founding and encouragement of such es
tablishments in our midst. Railroads of
course, are necessary, but they are only
the hand maids of industral establish
ments the one is a necessary dependance,
and the other a concomitant If our aspir
ations and dreams of growth are to be ful
iy realized, manufacturing must be found
ed and fostered among us. Mr. Ellis has
done well in building up a business of the
class alluded to, and but for misfortune,
would undoubtedly have made it an im
portant and profitable concern, but adver
sity and want of capital are heavy weights
to swim withon the sea of bnsiuess. He,
however, counts bnt one, while scores of
the like of him, are wanted to lift the tall
smoke stacks over the different portions of
the village. Ashtabula can preseutas many
advantages for building and carrying on
manufactories, in the supply of cheap fuel
and shipping facilities, as any other local
ity, and we are not true to our own inter
ests if we do hot use energy and effort to
have them improved.

that can possible make anybody smart
It advocates unity in a spirit of concilia

to draw by fairness when it could not
drive by pugnacity. In this respect it is
a model Christian paper, and its temper
