C. R. R. from tide water to Michigan. This is a deserved com pliment to a valued and efficient railroad officer, and shows the high appreciation in which he is held by the Railroad Company. We hope, however, that it will uot cause him to change his residence. Conductor Blakemors, is on a business trip to Ducyrus, Ohio. Last Sunday there was a large excursion over the Ohio Ceutral to this place. , ? The passenger train will run ev ery Sunday between Charleston and this'place, carrying passengers at reduced rules. The trajn mokes the run from this place to Charleston in three hoflrs. Having to back down it takes four hours to return. Arrangements are now being made to build a turn-table at this place. It would'make all tho difference in the world if thu depot of the 0. C. was a little closor to the town. The slide at Ryan's Run, a few miles below Charleston, has been put in first-class order. Business on the Ohio Central is picking up rapidly. It is surpri vingtosee the amount of travel there is on this road. Tilt; Ohio Central is fast taking the travel from the Kanawha boats. It will soon be mighty slim picking for thetu. If business continues to increa?e oji the Ohio Central, there will have to bo more coaches put upon the road,1 and perhaps another pass enger train. Superintendent Stevens, of thu Ohio Central, is an experienced Railroad man, and when he tells us that this road will become one of tho finest and best paying roads in tho country, we believe him. The passonger rates have been fixed at Scents per mile. The fare from here to Charleston 81.70. ExShorill D. S. Stevenson, of Clifton, was in town Monday. He took the train for Charleston in the afternoon, where goes to attend the United Slates Court as a Grand Juror. Mr. Y.

When these are up the piers will all be comple ted. Mr. T. R. IlofTman,of Painesville, Ohio, and wife have taken up their residence in this place, and are slop ping at the Kline House. Mr. 11. has a contract for a part of Ih? tres tle work of the Railroad Bridge. The contractors for the iron su perstructure of the bridge, are here and expect to go to work at once to put up ihe iron, commencing from the Ohio side. The foundations for the approach to ihe bridge, on this side of the river, is pushed rapidly. They are now at work on the Fisher far in. The contractors who aro getting out sione for the bridge piers, pro nounce the rock in thb quarries ad join i iig Iow n, li rst-class, a nd as good as can bo found anywhere. A sorics of meetings was enm uienced in the Lower Presbyterian Church on Monday night, in which the pastor, Dr. Young, is assisted by ltev. Lyman Whiting, 1). 1)., of Charleston. Dr. Whiting preaches every night. The meetings will continue over the Sabbath. Those who have not had the privilege of hearing Dr. Whiting should avail themselves of the opportunity. Burglars entered the store houso of Mrs. Vollert, Saturday morning, about 3 o'clock, and stole two sides of bacon. They entered through the back pirt of the building.

Farmer* are busy planting corn. Don't cell your wool at the pricci now offered. There is to be a now Clothing Houxe in this place; The girls look "too sweet" in their tie# spring bats. Thefe is a great deriiand for bou ses in this place. Next Tuesday is school election day. Don't forgot it The hills adjoining town are be coming quite a place of resort.

Many families are settling in this place. Women have no wone enemies than women. Tho young men in town are talk ing of organizing a musical club. Mr. J. G. Stortz is preparing to build a large uddition'to his hotel. While attending court, cull in and subscribe for'jhis papor. ( Lots are changing hands my rapidly in the Extension.

Mr. Cole says tho cash way of doing business works satisfactorily. John M. Adkine new store house is going up rapidly. Chickcus are now selling in this place at 35 cents a piece.

Fortune wheels and other gamb ling devices will not permitted on the Fair grounds this year. lion. li. W. Wilson, of Kanawha was in town Saturday. Sorry we were out when he called. Eut few indictments were made at the special term of the circuit court. 'Tis strange. We had a pleasant call from Rev. Father Burke, of Mason, last Mon day. Gen. McCausland and family of this place, fpciit last week in Cin cinnati. Cttpt. Ilein is now prepared to deliver ice at your homes, at the lowest prices. From the hills onn can havo a beautiful view of the Ohio and Ku nawha Vulleys. Mr. C. C. Miller is said to have the finest grain aud grazing faim in the county. The regular term of the Circuit Court commenced last Monday, his Honor J udge Guthrio piesiding. If we give our town the reins it will go ahead rapidly. Don't ham per the growth of the town. We have several subjects to ven tilate which we will proceed to do at the proper time. Our ])co|4o arc beautifying tlieir houses by paiuling and white-wash ing. Garden truck in plenty in town, hut command* a very high price. A littlo work on the Clarksburg roa<l between the bridge and Mc Cuiloch'.s, would bo beneficial. It is a pity, indeed, that so many of of our young men are addicted to drunkenness. The Nonpareil Billiard Parlors have closed. The tables were sold to Mr. Isaiah Gibbs. Troy, colored, charged with felo ny, was tried in the circuit court last week and acquitted. About the happiest man in town is Dr. Sawyer?it's a ten pound boy. Candidates for the olTicesof Sher iff, Clerks, Proslcuting Attorney, itc., are beginning to show up. The Andes did not pass up until Sunday afternoon, being some four teen hours behind time. Mr. J. B. Clendenin is Agent for tho Lovell Family Washer. It is no humbug, but will do all that is claimed for it. Will our Mayor and Magistrates permit gamblers to take possession of the town during the Fair, as they diil last year? We had a pleasant call from Mr. Do wen, editor of the McArihur, (0.) Enquirer, lust Monday, lie return ed home on the evening train. Wo might toll a groat many tilings that wo know, hut perhaps it is better wo should keep our ee cret to ouraelf. Considerable building will be dono hero this summer, and our earpotiters Jure all happy at the prospect. Tho Fair Catalogue is now print ed and in the hands of Secretary Hess. It was printed attbisofliua, and is a credit to our worktnun, John E.

Few young men (startout in their profession with I brighter prospects than be. Poesess ing the gifts of a splendid intellect with tho good fortune of b well bal anced mind, ho goes out to battle with life, sure to make bis mark in the niche of fume. Mr. .Belter was formerly a pupil of Prof. Ken ny's, whose esteem and regards go with him into his new field of act ion. A? a studont, ho was indus trious, exemplary, and quick to take hold of difficulties at which other natures woiild recoil. As a teacher in our public schools he bas had ho superior. As a mem ber of the County Board of Exami ner*, he lias discharged a disagree able duty to the satisfaction of all, and as a law student his examina tions before Judges Guthrie, 1'lem ing and Jacksun bIiow him to he a deep reader as Well as a great think er. May the star of destiny, John, go with you, leading you on and upwards lo a grand and noble ca reer, and though your place in the school room may be rAl^cd, ydt the fondest aspirations of your many friends bid you God speed on your journey of life. The wool ci'culitr of Matthew & Sample, Philadelphia, of May 4th, gives tho following quotations on wool, West Virginia XX-12 to 43c., X 40 to 42, half-blood, 44 to 40, quarter blood, 38 to 40, common, 30 to 33, washed, low to medium, 40 to ?00, unwashed, low to medium, 20 to 25, burry, 17 to 21. The farmer that don't take his coUnty paper is likely to bo the loser when the wool-buyer comes around, but he 11 baidly cateh any of the subscribers of this paper napping, for we in tend to keep them posted on the wool market. The fanner who is too stingy take his county paper deserves to be fleeced. We dou't want to be set down as a chronic grumbler, nor ard we to considered as making war upon the saloons, fur we believe tho propri etors will endorse what wo are about to say, and would be glad if i t were otherwise. W hat we start ed out to say is, that there is en tirely too much drunkenness in town. Hardly a day passes that I four or live men do not go by our | office in a beastly state of iutoxica lion. The men we allude to aro recognized by the law as habitual drunkards. They must get their whisky somewbero. Somebody cells to thrm. Tho qrtind jury now in session, should investigate the matter. The new Council is known to be a judicious and wise body of gen tlemen, but we do not think they are giving that attention to the town they ought to. If they havo any regard for the health of our citizcns they will Ut once issue an order directing a general cleaning up of premises all over town. Some of The streets and back yaids arc in a very filthy condition. Miss Gertrude I.ovelt, died at her ristcr's residence in this place, on Friday evening lust. Her remains were taken to Parkersburg fur bur ial. She had been residing in Charleston and hud been ill for some time, and was brought here nfuw days before her death in the hopes that the change might be beneficial to her. If you are engaged in business, if it pays, it can bo made to pay all tlio more by a judicious system of Advertising. The people now look to newspapers to seo who invites customers to bis store, or who offers bargains. The way tho Gallipolis merchants advertise and take cus tomers from under the noses of our merchants, ought to learn thom a lesson. 4 i ? There is a good deal of petty stoaling going on around town just at this time. No one's hen roust ur smoke house seems to be safe. We have a number of men in this place who never do any work, and of course they have to live. People who have nothing and wont work must of necessity steal from their neighbors to live. Mrs. Croasy desires to inform the ladies that she has just opened a fine line of Millinery in this place; which sho is offering at lnwor pri ces than any other Milliner offers them. Ribbons, laces, flowers, ties, ifcc., in abundance. .Givehern call and seo for yourselves, 2w. The Third Annual Meetingof the West Virginia Stato Pharmaceu tical Association, will be held in the city of Charleston, on Tues day, June 12th, prox. It is impor tant that there should be a full at tendance. Please notify by postal card at once, E. L. lloggs. Esq., President, Charleston, Wost Vir ginia, if you will be present. Tho hills adjoining town aro said to ho full of iron and coal. Why not form a company to dovolop it, ifpuoh is the fact. Up The Kasawiia.?Mr. Editor. Having business op (he Kanawha, one day Jul week, we boardedjWie train at 3:30 P. M. and wore soon steaming up the beautiful Valley of the Kamtwht The traveler from ihe car *lhdow getaadelight ful view of thecountry,and? this season of the year, when every thing wear? the garb of gentle Spring, there ii no more lovelier country than the Kanawha Valley. To the tourist wo specially com mend this line of travel. We found the officers of the train gentleman ly and attentive to tho wants of the passengers. The train is in charge of the Blakemorobroth ers, experienced Ituilroad men, and under their management the trav eler is accorded a comfortable, safo and speedy transit to his destina tion. These brothers are gentle men in the strident sense of that word, kind and attentive to the wantsof their passengers. We will say in this connection, that our hat was not chalked, but wo paid our fare like a little man, and therefore speak advisedly when we say thq Railroad is a success and its at taches and officers gentlemen, un der whose charge any lady travel ing alone nftll bo accoRled thatM'df-' ereuce and kindness duo her sex. #*# Ghost.?The people living along the Clarksburg roud, in tho neigh borhood of Hickory Chapel, are very much exercised by the re-ap pearance of a ghost in the shape of a big black dog. Tliey all assert that it is a veritable ghost, and it has been seen time and again by numbers of people. Men have met it in the road, while riding home on horse-back, and have put spurs to their horses, and have tried to out-run it, but never could; it has been shut at time und again by good marksmen, but without effect. Sometimes when people are walk ing along tho road it follows along by the side of them, and neither clubs, stones, or scolding will drive it from its position. Ihe Point Pleasant .Saw and Planing Mills will soon be one of the busiest institutions in ourtown. It is located on the banks of the beautiful Kanawha; at tho mouth ? of historic Crooked Creek, on the property formerly owned by the Ohio Barrel Company! It has been started up but a few (lays, but it is ! destined to do a large lumber bus iness. It has a capacity of cutting timber seventy five feet in length. At no distant day the company in tend til* put in maohinery for doing all kinds of fine work, and will em ploy noma two hundred or mora hands. The Saw Mill proper is the ; largest and finest mill in the State and has a capacity for cutting 50, 000 feet of lumber per day. K?. centiy this Company took aeon tract forsawing 1,000,000 feet of luni ber for tho Bridgu Company, which they are to have sawed in a very short time. It is conceded by everybody Hint some of the finest stock in the State has boon anil continues to bo rais ed in Mason county. The canto of this is the excellence of our grazing lands, and the pride that many of our farmers take in this particular brunch of business. It is as easy to raise good cattle as it is bad and indifferent ones. In blooded horses both for trotting and running, Ma son county is willing to test their '?bottoms" with any Stato iu the Union. And now the busy candidato lm proveth each shining hour working up his canvass. Ue visiteth the slippery voter who tolleth him that ho can depend upon his vote, but when election day comos votes for the other man. The Post OiViot Department has issued a new order requiring post masters to keep letters only seven days before sending them to the dead letter office.

Brinker and wife, at their residence in Graham Bottom, a few miles below Letart, on the first day of May, is worthy of special notice. Mr. Brinker aud lady seemed to be impressed with the belief that it was the only Wooden Wedding that they would eV'er have, and they determined to make it an occasion to ho remem bered, and they succeeded.

Every thing in the shape of a house in <tnd around town tliut could be utilized to live in, has been occu pied, and some of them containing two or three families. This shows the necessity of at once putting up some tenement hduses in this placo. If a company would undertake it, it would be found to be a paying investment in the end.
