a good, jolly, wholesouled, clever fellow,
until he sends in his bill, aud then
some of his subscibers consider him loo

ey to live, and to support his family, as
well as other poor mortals ; that he has
to pay cash for his paper, his material,
and to pay his help, and that oftentimes
it is a matter of necessity that he should
have what is his due. There is no more
occasion for a subscriber to get offended
at the printer for asking for his subscrip

The Dailt Evening Register, is the
title of another edition of the Youngs
town Register announced for the 14th

so evidence of sharp competition, for
.its about as plain as the sun in the heav

pursuing the even tenor of their ways,
and looking only to a wholesome, paying
business, would ever dream of starting
each a daily, in such a place as Youngs
town. As neither the Tribune daily or
the Register daily, think of making any

no doubt succeed in worrying one an

A. R. Bkckwith & Co. One of the
most tidy and orderly country stores that
we have had the pleasure of looking al
of late, is that belonging to the above
named firm, at Jefferson. It is a model
in this way, and docs not fail to attract
attention on this account Another at.
tractive feature about it is, its various de
partments, and its extent as a whole.
The stock embraces dry-goods, groceries,
crockery and glass-ware, one of the larg
est and best 'stock of boots and shoes to
be found in the region, a choice lotof
fancy goodsrases and ornaments and
a good stock of clocks, watches, and jew
elry. As they are evidently clever and
accomplished merchants, they are, with
out doubt, good buyers, and they claim
to range prices with their most favored
cotemporaries in the county. Our county

Ashtabula supports at this time, four

there is no appreciative difference in qual

that does attract some attention. The
difference between a shilling and fourteen
cents is a matter of some consequence, in
cash deals at the market. But when we
consider that the lower prices represent
only the cash deal at the shambles, and
the other, delivery and credit, the data is
furnished for calculating the cost of cred
it and a little accommodation. Fifteen
per cent is, perhaps, a very fair return for
these enjoyments. Beef is plenty, and

A $10,000 Robbert. Early Sunday,
morning the store of R. Potter & Bon
at West Springfield, Pa. was broken
into by burglars and the safe blown open
and $10,000 in bonds and currency sto
len, the property of different parties liv
ing in the vicinity. After the thieves had
obtained the valuables in the safe, they
set fire to the building, which was entire
ly consumed.' The stock of goods was
insured for $4,000. The robbers are sup
posed to be the same gang that entered
the store of Pelliboae & Son, at Girard
Pa., last week. Efforts are being made
to capture the perpetrators of these rob
beries. Later. Two men were suspected at
Geneva on Saturday or 8uuday, and
Constable Bartholomew with two assist
ants, as we learn, ' attempted to arrest
them, but they were without arms, and
one of the fellows drew his pistol and
fired at the officer, wounding him in the
arm and shoulder, and with a third
shot grazing his bead. This caused their
release, and they , escaped. One of the
pair, on Monday morning took the A. Y.
& P. road at the Harbor for Warren, bat
left the train at Bloomfield. He was fol
lowed up by a telegram directing his ar
rest at Warren, which was taken off by
the operator at Bloomfield, by which
the chap was identified, as he left the
train. An officer was notified, snd he
was overhauled and arrested confessed
his crime and wag lodged in Warren jail.
He denies having done the shooting at

HARBOR AND MARINE.
The Propeller Rocket.
From the Toledo Blade we clip tbe
following account of the sinking of the
propeller Rocket of Hauna fe Go's line :
Propeller Rocket. This boat has
been having a pretty rough experience.
She left Buffalo on the latter part of
November, having on board a heavy
cargo of merchandise for A- W. Colton
& Co. of Toledo. Tbe following Saturday
she was off Turtle Light, and anchored
to wait for a pilot to bring her in. While
waiting she was frozen in, and on Sun
day the mate came to the city on the
steamer Clinton, and tried to get two
tugs to go to her assistance. But he
was unsuccessful. None could be
found that were willing to undertake
the job. The next day, however, the
Cat. Daw went up and succeeded in
breaking tbe ice and towing her to the
red can, where she ran agtound, and all
efforts to pull her off were unavailing.
The Clinton, passing at that time, stop
ped and took off 100 tons of her freight,
which so relieved her that she was pulled
off, afier which the freight was returned
andjtue boats proceeded on their way.
When near the black can. tbe engineer
reported to the Captain that she was
leaking badly forward, The Captain on
hearing this, wanted to stop at Ironville
and discharge part or the cargo there,
but tbe men on the tug pursuaded him
not to, and they came on up tbe river,
the water gaining on tbeir pumps very
rapidly. While passing through the
bridge, the fires were put out by the ris
ing water, and when off Madison street,
within four lengths of her dock,
sank to tbe bottom, leaving her gang
ways just above the surface of the wa
ter. The next morning two steam fire
engines were loaded on a lighter and
went to work pumping the water out of
fV5v Dli?n,nad ,niade considerable
headwp At 10 o'clock there were
13 f. et o.vater In her bold. It iu thoueht
that a large hole was made In her bow by
the ice, and a diver is to be sent down to
About three o'clock last Friday after
noon Mr. George Breyman, sub-marine
operator, was low ered by the side of the
propeller for tbe purpose of ascertaining
the location ot the break in her side and
stopping it if possible. Once down the
cause ol the failure of tho engine to clear
the bold or water was obvious. A stream
or water six by twelve inches in size was
pouring into the hold. A few minutes
sufficed to stop the leak in a temporary
manner, tbe bold was soon comparative
ly free or water, and the Rocket is now
delivering her cargo at the foot of Jef
ferson street It is now thought that
the broken plank must have been weak
ened either by a blow from the anchor or
by a suae, aud that floating field icj did
the remain. ler of Hie damage.
Too much credit cannot be given to
the officers of the boat for their ingenuity
and their determination in keeping ber
afioct as long as they did. No sooner did
Mr. S. C. Scoville of Ashtabula, the chief
engineer, discovered the leak than he be
gan forming a bottom of cord wood for
tbe fire arch, which kept tbe fire above
the water, and so kept steam up. until the
dock was almost reached. As the water
crept up. more limbers were piled upon
the lower tiers, and tbe fire kept going
on top by feeding it liberally w ith oil
barrel staves. Although tbe tuen were
working in water up .to the breast, they
dkl nol relax their efforts unlil there was
no longer room for auy fuel between the
fire-bottom and the top of tne arch.

Some weeks bave elapsed since I re
ceived your friendly hint in reference to
communications. My apology is, I have
not felt tbe proper "inspiration," nor has
there occurred anything of interest in our
quiet little township, for gome time past.
Business of all kinds is very dull, yet
we do not feel the pressure with that se
verity in the country, as is manifested in
the cities, especially in large manufactur

view of the numerous strikes, chaotic un
certainty reigns everywhere. Every week
brings Ihe unwelcome news of suspended
factories iu eveiy direction. Now, in
view ol our great national debt, every
dollar of which must be paid, tbe question
is, what ought to be done ? We know
that wise and prudent men differ on this
point. When President Grant was asked
who was responsible for the losses sus
tained by the Republican party, the la
conic answer was, "Congress." Now, we,
as a Republican, will venture to say that
if the Presid nt had looked a little nearer
home, be would have found that his veto
of the Currency Relief Bill, had as much
to do with that question, as any other
Our eentle readers will see by this time,

we will give one hint more and then

tion bad curtailed her national bonds
keeping them in their proper bounds

millons less than it now is.

with a ewelling in the tide, and which baa been
quite prevalent in Ashtabula, is making its p
rearance in this vicinity. S. J. Smith's valuable
nag has ir, and a number of others. Dr. Q. Brown
has fitted np a place fur the treatment of this
disease, where horse owners cm have their
horses treated. His motto is no care, no pay.11
This "lung disease" confounded every
one but the doctor, and led to investiga
tion. With one or two exceptions, the
horses suffering were driven to town a
day or. two prior" to the development or
the malady by their owners farmers,
and, on those inclement days of last week.

a close examination, the seat of the dis

introduced into the side of the horse ty
means of a syringe, used by one familiar
to the medical fraternity an instrument
procured for this fellow by one of our
druggists a short lime ago. The point
chosen was just back of the shoulder
blade, unless the horse was part or a
double team then the opposite shoulder
was selected. None other but this Dr.
Brown had ever heard or seen anything
of its like; and upon the streets, insa
loons, about the liveries and elsewhere.
be had been minutely describing it, and
on Monday sufficient evidence was elicit
ed to warrant his arrest as the guilty par
ty. On being arrested, he waived the or
dinary examination, and giving f 500
bonds to appear at county court, was
released from custody. Almost every
hour new testimony was elicited from
farmers coming in from the country hav
ing ailing horses, and it was concluded
to arrest him again, on new and similar
charges; but when Ihe papers were put
into the hands of the officer an hour after
li is discharge, the bird 4iad flown. Offi
cers were put upon bis track, howeve
and he was overhauled at Erie, and an
examination will come off to-morrow.
The horses are in a terrible condition,
their bodies much swollen, and some of
them will die, or, at least, be rendered
unfit for use, for a long ime, entailing a
serious loss upon a good many Tanners
in tbe vicinity; There is no longer the
least doubt of tbe means used, nor of the
scoundrel who has thus destroyed so ma
ny valuable animals, in a foolish attem. t
to build up a reputation as a horse turn
er t ' . -r;
While this horse "disease" was arrest'
ing the attention of so many, the an
nouncement of the robbery and firing of
Potter's store, at . West Sringfleld, Pa,
some few miles east ol Couoeaut, on Sat
urday night last, kindled anew the excite
ment in the community. T'.ere is now
reason for believing "that tho guiity par
lies will soon be brought to justice.- About
four o'clock Sunday morning, Mr. Pot
ter's store was discovered in flames, and
the tire had got under such headway tkat
no efforts could save any of the stock of
goods, upon which there was an insur
surance of some $4,000. The building
was owned by Messrs. Thomas, of that
place, who bad several thousand dollars
in bonds and bank fun Is In Potter's safe.
An inspection of the buikiiug while burn
ing made i: at once apparent that Ihe fire
was the wwk of incendiaries, nod that the
sate had been burglarized. The suspected
parties are a couple of young men, who
were in the store the day previous, one of
whom has been in the employ of a farmer
in the neighborhood duriug the past sea
son. Tracing Ibcm this wuv, a pocket
bonk containing money and papers be
longing to Mr. Potter, was picked up on
the roadside, where the burirlars had
dropped it in their flie-ht. They were
next heard of in the vicinity of Geneva,
where intelligence of the robbery had
preceded them, and in an attempt to ar
rest them the officer was harshly handled,
and the burglars got away. In the scuffle
the burglars dropped more of their booty
a large bond, identified by the Messrs.
Thomas, being picked up. The fugitives
separated there, and one of them was
overhaaled in Trumbull Co., on Mouday,
and safely lodged in j iil at Warren. His
confederate and principal in the robbery,
is yet at large, but il is supposed officers
are iu hot pursuit The total loss by Ihe
fire and ourg.ary is some eight or ten
thousand dollars, and lo Mr. Potter Ihe
loss will be pretty serious, he losing all
his books and accounts accumulated du
ring his many of merchandizing.
