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

Besides, their positions, side by sldo, with

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

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.
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

Discussion sprung up in reference to the lib

lion hud paid $10 for straightening it up, tak

airainit toppling .over upon the beads of our
citizens. This fuel, in tbe opinion or Council

to (lie village coffers. " As it was thought a lit
tle difficult to fix responsibility for nn act that
ttie Corporation had performed upon lis own
volition, the molion was laid upon the table.
There remaining no business before the old
Ronrd, an adjournment was bad with Ihe ex
pectation of swearing in the new one, but le
gal impediments were found in tho way no
official notice having been civen of tbe elec

ten days allowed fcr that service. noiMnir
could be done. At the previous mectimr of

mendable and disinterested feeling or econo
my. Votes wero passed cutting down the sal
ary or Mayor from $100 a year to $00, aud
the Clerk from $50 to $1 for each evening
when a record was required. . As this action
was only to affect the Incoming officers, the
impartial propriety of the thing is not to be
eLtirely over-looked.

Tho Manufacturer's Loan Association made
a purchase, on Monday last, of the corner

which they Intend to proceed at once to fit up
for the office or this Institution. Possession is
to be given iu a few days, as landlord Wakm
ington shall be enabled to fit up his waiting
room across the hall in the rear, for office pur
poses. 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.
