y Remember the Concert of the Bak
er Minstreln, this Friday evening.
t&" Dr. Clark will be at the Fink House
'WonK AND Pl.AY." Dl. J. O. II01...AND,
more fMrnilinrly known by the fwme deplume
of 'Timothy Titcomb," bus consented to
give tlie above lecture In tin place on Mon
day evening, the 20th innt. The honr will
be half past 7. Admission 25 cents. We
have hed occasion to speak of this produc
tion, ft need not therefore pass any encomi
ums upon it here, further than to say, that
in our humble opinion, our citizens have
had nothing In the lectnre line, which, for
literary pen;ns and finish, crrma up to the
standard of Work and Play.
TiiXiOB Walks. There are portions of our
village that are sadly ((efficient in walks, unci
perhaps none more bo than that extending from
the Baptist to the Congregational churches.
Cortainly no portion of the village, considering
the children in attendance at the Pubiie schools
is more traveled over than this. The fact that
two of our churches, and our public schools
are sitnated on this black, makes this appeal to
the authorities and property holders a strong
one, and we cannot believe, but that our efficient
Mayor and the Council will take this mutter in
hand. A cross walk should also be provided
from the centre alley of the Park to the school
bouses, for the accommodation of jhe schools.
It is painful to see both children and teachers
in soft weather, fording the mnd that lies be
tween these points.
BY JAMES REED. A Murder--Almost.
Onr quiet citizens have been somewhat ex
cited for several days past, in consequence of a
brutal assault npon an inoffensive man by the
name of Pbat, who for the past 30 years has
lived isolated from the world, and followed the
useful vocatson of shoe-muking. We have re
frained from givin earlier publicity tc the aflnir,
io the hope that some satisfactory light might
be thrown npon the dark Heed. In consequence
of Mr. P.'s secluded habits, several days elups
ed before his neighbors became fully aware of
the atrocious outrage that hud been perpetrated
upon him. (lis own statement of the fuct. is,
that about ssven o'clock, on the evening of
Wednesday, the 25th of January, a sirnngor
into his shop, and wanted a rip mended in
seam of his boot, which he then pulled off
and handed to Mr. P., who immediately com
menced preparing a thread for that purpose ;
whereupon, without another word being said
the ruffian immediately knocked hi in down, and
beat bim senseless, and then, as if acting upon
the maxim that "dead men toll no tales," he re
sorted to the i;arrotiug process, which was in
tended as a finisher upon the old man. as the
black marks, visible on his throut 13 days after
wards, would plainly indicate
Io the melee, the light was extinguished, and
the old man shouted for help, hut soon became
unconscious, until some time in the night, he
found himself groping about in the durk. just
coming to himself, in a very bewildered state -It
is nut believed the old man hud a personal
enemy on eurth, but he has been $usprcled of
having some money by him, which do'ibtless
was the only incentive to the foul deed, and from
all the circumstances there is little room for
doubt that the wretch contemplated the double
crime of robbery ulid murder ; ami hat he be
came ulurmud from some cause, before the con
sumutiou of hU designs, and made a hasty re.
treat, leaving tho said boot behind him, .which
we trust may yet lead in his detection.
Mr. Pray describes the fellow us lull, with
rather u full flush lace, sandy hair, and about 24
years old, wearing a black hat, and frock coat
of a dark or brown color, but not black. The
boot is a- well made kip, for the left loot, slim
aud long, probably made on a ten size last.
Let this notice he published by each press in
the county, and let every reader note well the
facts, and it is believed that some one of them

Austinburg, Feb. 7th, '60.
Thb Uomckbt of Wednesday evening, given
by Mr. Hopkins, proved a very satisfactory and
successful affair. The hall was filled, ami the
receipts must have been decidedly wholesome
There weie present, nine gentlemen and ladies
who participated in the performances, the,
three Hopkins brothers, Messrs. Nehemiuh
Hubbard, J. Mansfield, and J. F. Gilford, aud
Mrs. Oscar Tsrrill, Mrs. H. Munn, Mm Scroggs,
Miss Salisbury, and Miss Wadswortb, of Madi
son, The selections and preparation of pieces
indicated taste and judgement, and the several
performers acquitted themselves with credit
Aside rroni the performance upon the violiu by
Mr. and Master Hopkins, perhaps, the m.,t
marked and boisterously applauded feature or
the eveulng. was the singing or Miss Wads
worth. To a voice of great compass aud pow
er, she added comply control, execution and
smoothness. Miss Salisbury's playing upou the
piano, was decidedly commendable. The eomio
character of the "Irish Cavalier," was very well
done by Mr. Oifford, in costume. The compo
sition of the quarietts aud duetu, as to voices
was happy aud effective. The commou semi,
meut, we believe, was oue of satisfaction with
the enterUiumeul, aud pleasure that the result
bad been so pecuuiarly remunerative.

Tub Bibi.b Cacsb The Uev. Mr. MesienRer,

or two canvassing this village, calling at every
house, raining contributions where praclibablc,
and in cases of destitution supplying copies of
the Scriptures. Without crossing the line of
the Railroad, his collections amounted to $100,
aud 17 copies of the Bible were left with fumi
lies who were unable to reckon this among their
earthly porsesMons. The fidelity and discretion
with which this work has been prosecaled. is
worthy of notice and commendation.

terday arrested one Dr. Hardy, whose office is
the corner of Court aud Soamore on a
charge of kidnapping. It is alleged that, some
time since, a likely tiegro boy came to the of
fice of Hardy seeking employment, and was en.
gaged by him as an office boy. After a tlmo,
is said, Hardy Induced the boy tosell him
self, and then on some pretext, succeeded In
getting him across the river to Newport, where
sold him to a man named Brown, a resident
that town. Brown took the boy to Louis
ville where he was put upon the block and sold
for $1,100. The boy told his story, and his
purchaser being an honest, humane man, tele
graphed to this city to see If it was true, which
resulted In the arrest of Hardy as above stated.
Barn Bornro. A barn belonging to Obed
Dibble, in Kingsville, was destroyed by fire on
Sunday morning last. Eighteen tuns of hay,
seven hoad or cattle, together with grain, farm
implements, Ac, were consumed in the barn.-
The fire is supposed to have taken accidentally.
Washington. The proceedings of the
House of Representatives on the 8h inst.,
exhibited the strength of the Opposition to
great advantage. Mr. Forney was. chosen
Clerk on the first ballot, and Mr. Hoffman
of Maryland Sergeant-nt-nrms. Mr. Forney
wns the first choice of the Anti-Leeompton
Democrats, who resolutely stood by the Re
publican candidate for Spcuker from the
first; and the promptness and unanimity
with which the Republicans recouized this
claim is a most satisfactory feature, of the
protrncted contest. The action of the Re
publican party iu both these eases eminently
honorable to all concerned. Seldom has
any party exhibited a more resolute bearing,
and at the same time a more becoming
temper, thnn bus now been manifested in
the election of tho officers of the House.
The country cannot fail to see in which
political organization, temperate counsels,
order, good conduct, and moderation pre
vuil; nor where it is necessary to look for
passion, turbulence, insulting language fac
tious purposes and traitorous threats of
dissolving the Union and breaking up the
Government. The members of thut Oppo
sition have fairly earned respect and con
sideration of all just aud reuscnuble men
throughout the country.
Amen and Amen. A despatch from
Washington brings a statement almost too
good to be true. It is, that a Presidential
programme hns been agreed upon at Wash
ington between the Americens and Repnb
licans.by which Edwakd Bates, of Mo., is to
be nominated for the Presidency, and the
gallant Senator from Pennsylvania. Simon
Cameron, for the Vice-Presidency. Senator
Seward is to huve the French mission.
We have of course no know ledge as to
the authenticity of the report. If ii be tlie
programme, and can be carried out, we can
drop the discussion of the hitherto difficult
question low shall the Opposition be
united ? It will unite itself by natural af
finities, nnd without the aid of party ma
chinery, Bvff. Com.
8Rev H. W. Readier made aralher
ludicrous faux pas at Salem, Mass. a few
nights since, by aiming several smart extem
pore sentences in rebuke of religions bigot
ry at ii bald head in the audience, which
he took to be that of Rev. Parsons Cook,
of the Puritan Recorder, with whom he
keeps an open account. The direction of
bis remarks was so obvious that the whole
audience turned towards the bald-headed
gentleman. But it proved not to be Mr.
Cook, .and Mr. Beecher was not a little cha
grined when he learned that he hud been
hitting the wrong man.
