It was a great event In the MIntosh
family, and The Republican was not
entirely untouched by It. It was so
much of an event that J. F. M'Intosh,
a member of the advertising force
of this paper, thought at first that
it should be celebrated by the lower
ing of the advertising and subscrip
tion rates, but it was pointed out to
him that to do that might be to es
tablish a dangerous precedent. If
such a reduction was made every
time that might happen in the domi
ciles of the members of the adver
tising force, the rates after a while
would be reduced to nothing.
The event to which allusion lias
thus been delicately made is a boy
of the weight of eight pounds, thd
first in the family. Mr. M'Intosh says
that he never saw a boy ol that age
in whose eyes the light of intelli
gence burned so brightly.
