We have sent bills to our subscribers twice dur ing the past year, but have met with very poor success in receiving replies or remittances. e are so situated that we cannot wait upon them in person, as our time would be lost, and our expenses frequently exceeds the profit of out business. We are furnishing tbe American at a cry small profit, as we "had expected that our friends, by so doing, would pay more readily and have but short standing accounts, borne have come np to our expectation while maey accounts have teen running for three, four and five years.

Conrad, who had been living with Mr. Weiser, and recovered part of the mo ney. The Gazette of last week, eavs that part of the money stolen had beeu kept In a bureau drawer, which was locked. The drawer aside of it wa9 not locked. The l itter bad been drawn out, by which means ill'; thief was enaV.eil to get his hand into the locked drawer and taKetlie money ; and theti the unlocked drawer was re turned, to its place. Tbe reft of the money 6tolen was kept In a class case, in another room. The glass was broken and the money taken. There was nothing else disturbed In the house. From these circumstances officer Roach correctly con cluded that the theft had not been committed by a stranirer, but by some one familiar with the premises, and lie directed his attention to a young man living with Mr. Wciser, named John F. Conrad. He kept his eye on him and dis covered that he spent small sums of coin in the neighborhood, and also in Sunlmry Toi photo graph, store gc-ods, Ac. In the meantime Con rad had left Mr- Weiser's and was sioppiiiL' with a Mr. Miller.

On Monday mo: n'mi:, about 4 u'clock, he wen' to Miller's got Conrad out ol lied, brought him to Suubury and lodged him in jail. He commenced to operate upou the prisoner, and tinally induce. I him to admit that he had committed the robbery. On Wednesday he induced Conrad to go with bim down to Lower Augusta and show where the money was concealed. It was hidden under a school house in the neighborhood, and ?lii In gold ami fol in ureeubaeks were recovered. The balance of the money stolen had been spent. The prisoner was then taken back to jjil to await hi trial. The case was very quietly aid adroitly managed. On Saturday Conrad was taken before Esquire Snyder, who released him ou bail.

Many of the children iu those localities never see the Inside of a school house aud grow up in entire igno rance.

Kditort American : We tiud it too incon venient to record the proceedings of this society, for publication tbe same week of convention ; k) we shall be obliged to treat your many read ers to some always one week later. The society convened iu the room of the High bchool, on the eve. of tiie -'-.'ml, with an unusual large attend ance. The meeting was called to order, witu the Pre sident, Mr. Wilt, in the chair, roll called and minutes of previous meetings rend and approved; after which the choir rendered some excellent music, with Mr. F. A. Lahr at the organ. The question ''iesoli-ed that art it more jiUaiing to the eye than nature," was creditably sustained on the affirmative by Miss. Showers, Lahr and Kni.s, und on the negative by. Messrs. Israel, KanH'inan aud Wilt ; the chair decided the merito ol the argument in (avor of the negative. The referred questions were answered with credit to Ihe referees. Several important resolutions were offered which underwent considerable discussion, but were not passed. Mr. Showers entertained the members with in structions in peumuni-hip, upholding that the study of principals aud eleineuts alone, does not make peniueu, but gave us his theory imitative practice. Mr. Showers was followed by Mr. Lahr, who entertained the members, very agreeably, ou tho elements of vocal music, giviug as his theory, lt, time, Uud, the thorough mastery of the scale by numerals and letters, and !rd, notation of scale. Iu select reading, Mr. Wilt rendered a piece with great credit to himself. This eve, being Washington's birthday, the society hud quite lorgotleu, ut the previous meeliug, to make urraugemeuls to celebrate the same. Following unlinished business, Mr. Wilt, (chairman.) announced r.ew business, wheu Mr. lsiael arose and rather ironically addressed the chairman, Mr. Wilt, (who is also superintendent ol Ihe Sunday School,) in behalf ot said school, praising iu a comic niannt r the school. Closed by presenting him wi.h a neat and costly volume of the "Idle or ChrUt," when Mr. "Will in a ni-ut, little, but appropriate address, thanked the committee for the confidence the school placed in him, as well us for the present of so valuable a book. The journal edited by Mr. (i . F. Israel and his asni.-taut, Mr. M. C Wilt, was next read aud well received. The editorials deserve, credit ; but not such sluliug that the editor sports a picadllla, with a very large slilt scarf attached. The correspondence to same wus good, especial ly sucb as Duinkups. The executive committee reported the follow ing for oue week hence ; " Hetnlved, that teaman nhould have a voice in governmental i'iiin,"(eUet ed for discussion), select readiug by L. W. Showers, instruction in mathematics by Mr. J. II. Kaullinau, instruction in music by F. A. Lahr ; with a number ol rtferred questions. Next was the report of the critic, Mr. S. B. Kuies, which was ably gotten up. Mr. Kniss has a cute eye. The chairman announced that there was no mure business before the house, when, on mo tion, the society adjourned lo meet next Tuesday eve., '-'SKb ikst. L. W. SiiowrK. Corresponding Sec'y. Wmr. Awakc for Mi'.rch is crowded with good things for us all. The two magazines, Wide Awake aud St. Xicholai, have accomplished an excellent thitig ; they have brought us elder ones into close sympathy with the cbildreu.umi made us boys aud girls together. Everybody reads the childien's magazines. Bolh the boys aud girls have their own special story, "How Miss Chatty Earned a Living," by the editor, and Lost in the Woods," a mapple-sugar story, by .1. II. Woodbury, for which Mirrill has drawn a fine frontispiece, a capital picture of a busy sut;ur-cauip. Tho geography class get a paper "About Maps," full of curious facts, and most entertainingly written. Ella Kodman Church gives uu iuteiestlr.g account of "Life Among Ihe Ojibbeways," and Emma Burt has a fanciful story, with a fanciful picture, concerning "The OIJ Elm of Boston."' The editor serial, "The Cooking Club," has deepeued into a bit of in tense story, und the other serial, "Young Rick," by Miss Eastman, is lull of ndventure. There is "Work for Little Fingers," by Daisy Eye bright. There Is also another piece of Work for Little Fingers proposed in "Centennial Trees." a proposition that each boy and girl shall cele brate the centennial year by planting a tree. It is a good idea, and ought to be carried out. There are large-print stories for the little ones, music, puzzles, rides on. the Magic Carpet, and poems by Holme Maxwell, L. O. Warner, Mary E. Atkinson and others. Only 93.00 per annum. D. Lotbrop & Co., Boston. IIaeter's Magazine. March, 1870 HarptrU Magazine for March contains the second install ment of George Eliot's uew novel, "Deronda." The second book is entitled "Meeting Streams." The movement Is'ftiuch more rapid than in most of George Eliot?s novels, and the story more popular in its cast. This Number of Harper is exceedingly rich lu Action. Reside the serial stories by George Eliot and Julian Hawthorne, there are five short stories.- 'Number IS," by Elizabeth Smart Phelps ; "Simpson of Busaora," by James Payn ; "Almost too Late," by Charles De Kay ; "Want edA Soul," by Mrs. Frank M'Carthy ; and "The Crime, of Abigail Tempcft," by Susan Archer Weiss. Tho last of these is founded on a tradition respecting General Washington, nod is illustrated. Tho most popular of the illustrated articles in this Number will be Porte Crayon's inimitable essav on "Ths Baby," with twenty humorous illustrations, J. T. Trowbridsre's poems, "Aunt Hannah." A more serious subject "Lueretia Borgia" ia treated by Professor Crane, of Cornell, in the Unlit of recent disclosures In Gregorovlus's bio graphy. Professor Samuel liockwood contributes an article on "The Microscope" especially fascinat ing for young readers. Edwin P. Whipple concludes his centennial paper on "American Literature." A very interesting characterization of the Par ties (High, Low, and Broad) of the Church of England, and the moat remarkable preachers of that Church (Magee, Dean Stanley, Cannon Liddon, Dean Gouldburn, and the late Bishop Wilberforcc), is given by Charles D. Dcshler, in connection with Mr. Arnold's recent work, "Our Bishops and Deans." General T. M. Logan, of Richmond, gives a very favorable view of the future of tbe new South ; and his instructive article is very happily supplemented by Mrs. Handy's thrilling descrip tion of "Confederate Make-shifls" during the late war The Editor's Essay Choir is in its pleasantcst vciu this month. Nothing could be more de lightful than its musings over the musical con certs of by-gone days in New York. The Scien tific Record, in Harper' t, is the only complete monthly summaiy of scientific progress publish ed. The Drawer this month is full of amusing facetise, with two laughter-provoking illustrations. Prompt Uelurorcciiicnt. When the physical encreies are overtasked or flag through weakness or disease, they need prompt reinforcement. Renewed vigor Is most speedily supplied through the medium of a tonic stimulant, and among medicinal resources of that class. Hostetter's Stomach Bitters as suredly deserve a pre-eminent place. Weakness, whether constitutional or arising from disease or over fatigue, cannot be better compensated for than by a resort to this prime strengthening cordial. The enfeebled invalid, the canvalescent und the aged and infirm find that it is an unfail ing source of vigor and comlort. Its combined tonic and alterative properties also conslituta it an invaluable remedy for iudigeation, weakness of the organs of ori nation constipation, torpidi ty of the liver, aud mauy other Irregularities and disabilities, and render it an invaluable pro tection against malaria, as well as disorders of the stomach and bowels.
