The absence of the edhor will account for t the lack of editorial variety this week. omiii v Newspapers Lately we have seen a great dal eaid about tht country preaa. Some of the editors of est ren journal seem disposed to tl ink that tbeir circulation docs not interfere wi-h the cir- ( culalion of the country papers, locy con fined as they are in the narrow limits of a 'pent p city' know nothing about it. nnd therefore cannot speak of the matter like we who are c lulomca to toe lereo.ypeu puraiu oi vim . uke your paper, I take the 9. Y. Tribune,! or I the 'Herald,' or 'Ledger,' or -Unin,' or Jntel- ligencer,' and I can get them just as cheap It , . n. I,- il . c I can the Free Frees. If Horace GattLt ocl Jajiir Gobdkx Bi kset were to come out "to the west and solicit patrons to a weekly j-ur- nal for a few days you wouia not near mem Droclairainir that "their circulation does nol in- V terfere with the country press On the con- Wary you would see Horace breaking for the great metropolis, perfectly satisfied that the ' Tribune" was a safer medium to make his bread and butler through than any "out hone" instituion "west of the Alleghenies," and Bevnkt would "come dowu" on the first "bone and sinew" of the land that he would meet, in his peculiar sarcantic fctyle, as we know he "couldn't bold his tongue" under su-jh circura stances. The truth of the matter is, that the circula tion of the city "Mammoth Weeklies" dots ma terially affect iho patronage of the country pa psr$.nd why ? Hicau'e theso "Mainmolh Weeklies" flic, as a general thinir. "m ide up" from dailies, tri weeklies A semi weeklies, and of course the composition doM not cot near so much as U doea . eoutvry p iper. The cily daily is first printed, then the tri weekly, then thc semi-weekly and then tho frOBl iJ'j, and j all QOne OU IIIC h,.nie ipe, wimn tiiv iuiiii'i) paper has to set up its type for only one. Now if we could publish three or four papers upon the typo we pay for having composed, wc could eompe'e with the of tho eastern pipus ; hut inste ud of that we pay as much for bulling the type for one edition as these atattrl papers pay for the composing of the type they print three or four different papers upon In nee. they ran afford lo send their "nuimmntlm" into our counties, nnd drive awny Ihe circulation of our papers. We do not want to say any hard things nbout the city press, but when we see them try ing to make the western people believo that theirs is ihe only pnper, we feel a good da1 like letting ihcm know that Iho 'Free Press' is still on hands. .t.. vn. il. The Itallroiid eltrullon Came off on last Thursday, am! a good time we had. At ten o'clock we '.eft the depot at this place, and after a pleasant ride, arrived at Bayard station a few minutes afitr noon ; there we parloe.k of a jrood dinner, prepared for ihe occasion, and, nlier the arrival of ihe express train from Wellsville, we were again ready for tho "naiion" where we arrived nbout 0 o'clock. There was a general turn out of the people, and all seemed to feel blgjUj gratified at Laving an opportunity of be ing dr.'.wn by the iron hunt through the territory of "lilile Car. roll."

Wagons, loaded with produce wheal especiully arc pouring in iliiok and fast, and the farmers who attend thein look as cheer ful aad good-humored a any in the State bp eau they can dispose of their produce at a fair price, and get the cash at that.

Thoe slopping there will find the proprietor, JJk Pattox, n gentleman in every respct, and well calculated to contribute to the wants and com forts of his patrons. Give him a rill, and oar word for it, you will get the worth of your mo ney. By the way , the Railroad ball which came ofl on Thursday evening last, at the 'Patton House,' was a magnificent affair, and reflects honor on the gentlemanly prop rietor.

Dr. Tomlinson was formerly I resident of Au gusta College, in Kentucky, nnd afterwards President of Ohio University at Alliens. He was minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, nnd a man of high scholastic atiaiiimenls. Ho had been for moths laboring under great de pression of spirits, caused by the death of a fa vorite son. This is a very singular case, and one which would naturally be regarded as the result of insanity. But the Clermont Courier says that it was premeditated, and that a letter was found upon his person assigning a reason for the act; "They were stated to be,'' says the Courier, "ill-health, the loss of a favorite son, during the last summer the absence ot an income ad equate to the neessities of his family, exciting fears that they might come to want and oth er reasons, which, although involving no cul pability on the part of any member of his fam ily, it would be improper here to repeat."
