Library op Pok'tuy J. B. Fobd & Co- Park Row, New York. We have received a copy of this work, and feel that we have one of the greatest literary treasures. "It is un doubtedly what iu preface claims it to be, 'the choicest and most complete general collection of poetry yet published.' It will be deemed sufficient proof of the judicious character of the selections, and of their excellence, that every poem has taken its place In the book only after passing the cultured criticism or Mr. William Culleu Bryant,' whose portrait constitutes tho fitting froutisplece of the vol ume. The work could buvo no higher en dorsement Mr. Bryant's introduction to the volume is a most beautiful and comprehensive critical essay on poets and poetry, from the ciays oi -tue lamer or JSnglish poetry', to the present time.

Poor Lo 1 Excavations for Paul Cheney's national mansion at the Harbor were beirun last week, and in their progress developed some rather interesting relics ot the mut Some three or four feet below the surface the skeletons, more or less decayed, ot eight Indians, whose bodies had been buried there many years since, were found. How lonir since, of course is a subject of conjecture, as there are none to tell the story of those days when Poor Lo lazily stretched himself upon tne nigh, green bank of the lake, with its bouutifulexpanse of shimmering water.monarcb ot all be suryeyed. That they were Indians, there can hardly be a doubt, as legend has it that this was one of the resting places of the groscr parts of those whose spirits bad rone to the celectial bunting grounds, and the en joyment of the society of the great spirit Besides, their positions, side by sldo, with heads to the west, after the Indian mode of burial, seems to confirm this conclusion. The bones were much decayed, many bud crumbled to dust, but the skulls with their teeth, and the larger and denser bones, were all tliut hud Withstood the tooth of time. Some of these were taken by our citizens for preservation Whether the fact ot so many belnif found to gether, rather indicating a simultaneous sepultre. is evidence of war, pestilence or famine, are matters for speculation. Similar deposits have before beeu thrown out in this vicinity, thereby strengthening tbe opinion that this ws a place of sepultre. for the aborigines of the soil.

It Is well for every person, once A year, lo tske Recount of stock and settle with them telvrs. It makes but little difference In wbst their stock consists, It Is well for them to know how they ttsnd, whether they can show ro grest and an accumulation of capital. This rule holds good when applied to cither finan clat, mental or moral development In fact, It Is the only safe way to manage business of any kind, end the men or w oman, or body of men, who shrink lrom a settlement of this kind, tire moral cowtrds, and will proba bly prove themselves failures sooner or later, aud bankrupts financially, mentally and m.ir ally, frequeut settlements, prove checks to worthless expenditures and keep one with in the line of his resources. If tbit rut Is ob served there will be no danger as to how one will;come out at the end of the year. But if we branch out in business without regard to the amount of capital we have to begin with, and the amount of our resources upon which to depend in case there comes a lull or a tern porary reverse in our Dustiness arrangements, trouble aud dicaster is sure to follow, which Is sure to prove tho best evidence of our un fitness to occupy a position of responsibslity and trust. . . By liurcc of Its own logic, this brings me to an exumlnalion of the wov lu w'llch our noli. ltc schools have been managed during the past year. I am aware that you culled upon our School Board to give a detailed statement of their finuncisl condition, intimating to them the advantages that would accrue to them by thus doiuir.nnd 1 hsve been anxiously looking lorsucua report, but up to this time 1 huve been disappointed. It seems to me thot these gentlemen shrink from the consequences of a simple, pluin statement of fuels such a state ment as will enable us all to see Just how this branch of the people's business is conducted, and whether these men have proved them selves worthy servants. It is nn unpleasant tusk to perform, I assure you, this looking into what may be considered the affairs of others. aud I would not do It wero 1 not a friend of common schools, nnd acting up to my con victlom of duty. I have all my life seen the benefits to be derived from a proper and correct manucemcnt of the common celumlu or our county. I believe the only sure way to inunage them is lo be careful in so couduclinjr their nuances as lo make them self-supporting, avoiding as for as possible, the necessity lor asking for increased taxation; and when It does become neceraarv to aalc for mirh in. crease, It is highly Important that tho people should have Implicit confidence in the honesty ana auility or those who ask it There is no way so well calculated to inspire and maintaiu that confidence as an open, frank und candid showing st all times a lull nnd complete rec ord of a Board of Directors whose duty it is to handle monies thus collected. In the abseuco of a report from our School Board, I am left to gather such facts as I can reach from unofficial sources. At the com mencement of tho last fiscul year, there was In the treasury, goo. Received from all sources during the year, 8.800. , Total, 12,700 Am t of expenditures accounted for, $ 8,004 Am't on hand at the close of the fiscal . 800. Am't not accounted for, 8,800 Total, 127007 I find In a statement made by the Beard, an item of $G00 for wood and continge 'ntie. What these contingencies consist of I am unable to conjecture. It has tho look of something not Just right, and it would have beeu much more to the credit of the School Board had they made it plainer. I would like to have these gentlemen tell us bow much of the public money they have used during the past year In the book business, aud what disposition they made of the $100 they took from the treasury recently and passed to the credit of the book fund give us a statement showing the neces sity of this transfer. Please, give us also, the amount it cost us for teaching the German language In our schools, and whether the ben efits deriyed from the personal influence and teaching of the Professor was equal to the amount it cost. I hear, gentlemen, that the outlook is not as creditable to yourselves as you wish, and that you begiu to feel a little disturbed about the financial future of your school, nnd thnt you propose to maintain the present high 1 standard of Die schools on credit, depending upon some change iu the future that will help you out of your troubles. Now then, gentlemen, if you begin to see breakers ahead, I adviso you to be gin to shorten up and take in sail, throw over board a portion of the cargo, about ship, and you will find plenty of water and fine sailing. You cau very easily do this, by giving up the school book business, in which you have beeu and now are, unlawfully using the public mouey, reducing salaries you hnve been pay ing in consequence of this book business, and bring all your other expenses wliiiin the line of your resources. In this you will find safe ty and success. But If you do not heed these warning signals that arc now so essily seen by those who are not members of your Board, you will find, In time, a bankrupt treasury and ruined school, and demonstrate your unfit ness for the place you occupy. VILLAGE. Upon the partial retirement, In April, 1871.1 from office or a Board or Aldermen, who, by their official acts, had proved themselves a disgrace to our village, we louud ourselves In debted something over $11,000, with compara tively nothing to show for this reckless ex. pendlture of money. On the 1st day of April, 1872, the balance of this Board were cast over board and swept from positions of public trust which they bad disgraced for the past two years, by on utter disregard of duty in their management of our fluunces. Either from a sense of shame, or a fear or conse quences, they neglected to the last, and finally retired from office without performing a duty made plain by the statute, to wit : on page 31 of the Statutes of Ohio, passed April 18, 1870, Volume 57, you will find the following law "The Clerk ahull, on or before the third Mon day of March of each year, make and enter In the record book of the corporation, an ac count of all the receipts aud expenditures of the corporation of the preceding year, stating from. what sources the money was received, and for what purposes expended, and showing the exact condition of the several funds of the corporation. Also, be shall cause a condensed statement of such account, which shall be ap proved and certified to by the Mayor, to be posted up at the places of holding elections for officers of the corporation, on the 1st Mon day of April, annually. And the Clerk tW publish the tam in tome newtpapir published or of general circulation in the corporation, at least flte day prior to thtfirU Monday of April." I italicise tbe last clause of tbe law, as I re gard it the vital feature of ths law, and that feature in which the people have tbe greatest interest. Why these officers have disregarded this plain provision of the statute, is not for me to say but I will say this, that the Clerk was well versed In tbe law and understood well bis duty. I bop among tli first official acts of lb new Mayor and Council, thry will cause to be made out a full and complete statement of the sets of the old Board and have it publiahed In the TtUgrnph, that we may all see what has been done, the psst year, by these unworthy servsnts. I have made this article much hnger than I expected to when 1 commenced, and yet I find the subject so fruitful I hardly know where to ARGUS. Nxw Road.

The plat pur chased lies between tills line or road and the bank, which, after laying out the road, will be cut up Into building lots.

This is one or the best stands In the village, and no reason, on account of con venience of location can nreveni success to both the new banks, as they both have been alike fortunate in this respect. The price paid for this corner room was $4,250. We notice that E. H.
