By the Late Rev. JOHN HALL. LIBRARY. A. 1)., 1813, the livv. Joseph Hanger proposed 11 Library Association ; which was loriiit-il, mid i-alk-rl the Ashtabula Social Library Association, The lirst books wwt-a fhoice seli-ctiott, iiUifhsisetl of the Uev, Mr. Hadirer al his book stoic, Thi-y were will read lor st-vi-riil years. The books wtv then niosily tliatribiitt-d among the shaiel.ld era, and the library, for 11 time, stispeudcd, July 20, 1830, it was n-oig tnizeil, ami was incorporated by the Legislature, December V!7, 1830. It contains (March 5th, 1850,) 730 vol umes, which cost $770.88. Other means ut iliKseiiiina'ing know letlu to enlighten the minds, 10 luciliiate the business operations, ami the inter change ot amiable correspondence of t.hv people, may be iHcKUum-d wi.der the h ails of mail contract ore and cairiers, post coaches, post-udices ud pohl-iuusii-rs, linn post I'OUUS. The first mail eontinclor and carrier was John Melcalll His first cotiiimt li r cai rung llie U. S. mail was made, it is stjppi.sed, in 1808 5 mid. his route cntctiikil from Cleveland to Erif, I'cnii sylvania, IIo contiiit.o I to carry the ma. I over this route mostly, or entirely, O.i is back, lroni the early part of 1!0 to he beginning ot 1811. bin li was lire Wud slate of the country, and the ex-cei-sive badness of iho routta that Mr. Metcalt was stil jected to dangers, jjii turns, labors aiiU vacu us obstacles, which n less vigorous, active and enterprising man would have sin uuk trom encounter ing. And yet neither muddy roads, 1111 Lr.dgcd and flooded rivers and rivulets, cold or heat, or storms and tempests, or liny but absolutely insurmountable ob stacles prevented this persevering 111.111 trom dilivering llie mail at the stations in due time, with woiidertul punctuality. It is said that lie. sometimes waded, and sometimes even swam the swollen si 1 tains with the mail bags poised upon his head to keep it above water. Doubt less it was lighter and emptier than at this day. In 1811 Aslier liigvlow w as employed by Gideon Leet, Esq., post master, to carry the mail on horseback, from Ashlabula to liufl'alo. To accom plish this he was allowed in the best sea sons of traveling, twelve d'tjB to go and ret in n, and the fourteen days when the waters were high, and the mud was deep. Even this long tune often proved too short. Should the mails be detained as many hour, iu these days of steam propulsion, our business rneii would be impalicti.. in the latter part of 1811, or begin ning of 1812, it is believed, John Me cult is found carrying the mail again in a heavy lumber wagon; with a span ot spirited horses; the team and vehicle be ing furnished by Aiiau Harmon, and driven by Meleaif, with bui prising velo city, over his old route from Cleveland lo Erie, perhaps on a renewed contract. About A. D., 181S, the wagon was succeeded by a decent little stage coach, w th two scuts lor passengers, and the driver's box, drawn by two horses. In this carriage Metcalf conveyed the mail and pusseugers back and lorth, on the Cleveland fc Erie route, perhaps until 1818. About that time, W in. Whitman, of Ashtabula, Calvin Cole, of l'uinesville, and others, established a regular line of stages, extending s-ast and west far be yond Meicalt 's old route, and conveying mail and passengers iu an improved style of wagons, llnyiili this place. This company was succeeded by Edwin Harmon, who luruished the route from Erie lo Cleveland with four-horse ci. aches of the best description, druwn by excel lent horses, lie commenced running the stages on this route of 100 miles, both ways, every twenty-four hours. From this time- onward, daily morning and evening stages passed through this place, biingiug the easleiu aud western mails, by two teams and eoiches. Mr. Harm li thus Ooupied this route for per haps seveu years, mid was succeeded by Col. Henry J. Kus, of Ashtabula, for a considerable time. Then Kus & Con verse, who were succeeded by Col. II. Ilubbuid and Col. 11. J. Kus, until 1638, when , they were succeeded ' by Neil, Moore & Co., until stages on this route vera suspended by tbe more rapid rail rood cars, in 1852. The l'imloUice was established, per haps, about the time of the organization ol the towtmhip. The Postmaster have been a tuMows : Gideon Leet, Ett., Ezra Kellogg, Kq,., David Kliee, Matthew Hubbard, Est., l'hilo Boolh, Er., Nehe miiili Hubbard, John llooth and Ezckicl POST ROADS. Tho Hidge road from east to wst was from 1808-'9 to 1852, the great thorough fare, and tho principal post road on which the mails were brought to Ashta bula. Now, the Hidge roads are way of dimniisVivd importance, reduced near ly to a par Willi ordinary roads. The old road trom Aahtabula through SayHrook ftA .Aumiiiburg ard other township of the fourth range, to Warren, a dreadful wilderues load from the be ginning of the present ceitmty to 1810, continue, a it ir been from the Ix-gin-ning, the principal post road, (with some vAauges iu liie northern twenty miles,) from the south. In 1810 ihis road was conveU'ed into the Trumbull and Aahta bula turnpike, wbk.li was used for about thirty years, to transport the mails to and from Warren, oy stage coaches, and eventually, to and from Wellsvillc and Ashtabula. It thus ccArstittttct, A con tinuous post road from the Ohio to Lake Krie, its northern part passing now from Hock Creek, in Morgan, through Eagle ville, in Auslinbttig, to Jeilirsou, ihe county seat, and thence to Ashtalmla. Daily morn iug and evening mails are received t Jefferson and Ashtabula, aud tri-wecMy waMs al the offices txAMh of Jefferson, on this road. The north pari of this road was, for a few years, me.l to convey the mail to and from the tem porary postofh'-.-e at the haibor and village postrflicts Other tihortcr mail routes have, from time t lime, brought in mails from the southeast, eilher sei aratciy from this route or in coigtitrcltoA with it. In 1817, ft txwd was laid from Ashta bula to Jefferson, through the great marrJi iu South Ashtabula, (now Ply mouth,) which was important, as the shortest and most direct route lroni the northern part of the county in the vi cinity ot Ashtabula village, and from the ridge mads to the cou ity seal, which could lie projected. Uy subscriptions, atid by $300 from the county treasury . tho expense uf opening this niwl and rendering it barely passable through an almost unbroken wilderness, weic de tiyetl. Oilier subscriptions tud grants were obtained trom lime lo lime, and ths road gradually improved until it be came a good one. The a troll and projectors of this im portant road, in Jefferson, were Timothy it. Ilawlev, QuiutUM F. Atkins, Durliii Heacoek, Esq., and Messrs. Ntmii Hob kins, Loomis, and others'; iu Ashtabula, Matthew Hubbard, Esq., Thomas Whelp ley, John Hall, Walker Kiehinoinf, Joshua Hockttcll, Dennis Homily and J ona. Hiill'uni. Qiiiniiis F. Atkins w tormed the greatest job on the road, in causewaying the big marsh.

The following from an exchange, will meet with a hearty response from many hearts: "Bless the old people, say we ! What should we do without them? Does not a man feel belter and stronger iu the battle of life for hating a gray headed old father aud mother under the shelter of some brown-eaved farm-house far away? Does the millionaire's heart leap so high at the sight of the pints aud oranges that daily decorate his table, as he does when the barrel of red-streakid tipples comes from the country home, upples from the old hillside orchard, care fully picked out by a spectacled mother, and directed in a shaking hand by the old man? Ahl those apples have a tlivorot home cud childhood! What an event it is lo tho dwellers in brown stone mansions and marble-tronted pal aces, to have the old folks t ome up from the country on a visit, with tluir old tashiuied ways, aud antiquated snuff colored garment, and horror to all new inventions and dangerous novelties! We can but smile when they blow out the gas, aud sit as far as possible from tin ftirnaco registers for lear they shall burst, and start every time tho speaking-tubes aie used, and regard the water-pipes as fearful ami wonderful things. Such tilings make them leel that their day and generation are over, even more than "the white-headed little grandchildren, and the silver threads in the locks ot the sou or daughter who was their " baby " once. Yet there w as something beautiful, in their simplicity, their utter ignorance of ihe murvels of city life. Tho dear old folks 1 ' A long as they are alivo there is ulwavs an uuiirinu: ear for our tale of joy or I rial, a ready excuse for our foibles, there is always some one to wuouie are still " the children." It is only when the accustomed fireside chair is empty, and the violets growing over the geiiile eyes, that we feel the 'bitterest pang of heart sickness that earth has to give. When the old folk are gone we are alone, though a thousand friends sit around our hearthstone. 1 , A Cheyenno loiter says t " Mayor "Hurt reci nil v trot from a Crow Chief, a spicula of gold, as long as a lead pencil and half as thick as his flnirer..

He wa pitching off corn stalk from a flay rigging in h'm .trier' barn-yard, when Trfptieu Ham-roft t atnc aloni', and leaning over the barn-yard gate, stnsated Maum-hly : "Charlie, what do you sayf We want you to teach our school this win ter !" "Oh, ye, I'll leach i1ij school,"" came the careless response, as he kept pitching off fodder for the cow. "How much will you teach for?" ask the trustee, beginning to cut nolclie with bi knife on the top of the gale. " i'crty dollars A month, aud board my self." ' 3 "Oh, yon can't ni:an that, Chafl'm 1" said the trustee, w ilh assurance. We've never paid much over half of that. We ought to get you lor less. You're a be gMincr you know.' At this, Charlie Benton turned about, and looked at the man he had been talk ing with. He took off his hut, and throwing back his brown curls in a sum mersault over the back of li'.s head, he said, pointedly ; ' ou can't moan, Mr. Bancroft, that you tire in earnest in this talk !" " I ftm most certainly. Why not f "I'll tell you why. I've been to school all my life with these boy and girls, and we've het w children together. Moreover, Pye arranged logo lo if Academy next week, for the inter." "Well, dial can be dispetified with, you know. We'te been talking ihe m li ter over, and thought we'd like lo hate you teach or us. How much will you take?" ' "Just what I sai.V, Mr. Bancroft. II 1 teach, I iMMst. be paid fist- it." There was no halfway in the boy's disposition, A sad face would send a lear down in hi heart, sod a niggardly insult would feel the tonic of his list. Mr. Bancroft, whittled away at the notch awhile, and then said: 'You'll give until to-morrow to de cide, I suppose ?" "Ill gic you until sundown." And at sundown Charlie Benton was hired to teach the winter school, in which lie had been a part and parcel, and was tamtnis fur its advanced scholarship, as well as for having oitv of the worst boys in the world to deal wiih. That was Harvey Haymoml, the Deacon's sou. He bait been expelled from the school the past four or live successive winters, and was a conceded leprobate. The Deacon was an old fellow ; enough of I'uritanic (unions i his hcatt lo spoil a dozen ingenious children, and foster :t I'.ice of Sprtlcss block-heads that did iO poM ss energy or genius enough to storm a snow castle. Seeing CI uri..-s pass, a d.iy or two later, he hallooed to him : "Yon expect to teach our school this winter, Charlie?" " Yes, sir, I expect to,"(was the reply, " Well, what are yoJ going to do w uli Harvey?" growled the Deacon. "Do with Harvey? Why litkaud 1 have always been good friends."' " Yes, 1 know thai. But he always disturbs the school. What arc you iro- iug to do with him ?" " You think Harvey a bad boy, dou'l you, Deacon ?" ."Bid! of course I do. He is one of the worst boys lever ver know any thiur. saw, ami lie 11 lie Hell make you Deacon shook his trouble," And the head ominously. "Deacon, I don't think Harvey a bud boy. He's ihe smartest ami biggest hearted boy you've got, and 1 ant going to treat him accordingly, and advise you to do the same. 1 don't think you do right by Harvey, Deacon;" and Charlie Kenton turned his blue eyes straight on the Deacon, who miglil have thought the lad a conceited young adviser, it he had not known him from his childhood. Mo.iday morning cum, and school opened With halt a huiiUred pupils. There were half a dozen young women (J Inn lie. had rlirtid with, aud twice as many boys about Charlie's age, and some older onts. Ard before lie had been their playfellow and companion. It was altogether a trying time lo the young teacher, and his face might have been Iialer when he iiiude his opening speech, le stood up quietly for a moment, and, tiller sending a look straight into each in dividual lace, said : ",Schulurs: You and I have been playmates and pupils together. You know all about me, and I know all abcitl you. Tho trustees have hired me to teach the school this winter, and have pledged themselves lo sustain me iu whatever I undertake, r'njltt or vromj. 1 intend to help you all 1 can, and 1 want you to help me.

We are to be scholars together in school, lb l' I expect to learn as much as you. Out ot school, 1 shall bo Charlie, it you like, and your playfellow, as heretofore." He had been null a joily young fellow that the girls, Willi wli .m he had always been a favorite, "cackled" over the tun they wotil J have in school ; aud the boys hud crowed iu a similar manner. The morning session passed oft' order ly and quietly. In the allernoon, one of iho girls Charlie had flirted with, and been on intimate terms of acquaintance, took the initiative in liaviug the fun. He let her enjoy it for a few moments, and then walked lo where sho sat, bent his head down to her ear, and said, coiitiden- my ... .... "Maria, 1 wish you wouiu si ep to my leak a moment, I want to speak with yon. Maria immediately arose, whiles vision of proffered gallantry Hilled across her mind.
