Bnrton, June 24, 1865. The Father of General Grant. Jesse K. Grant, father of Lient. dsn. Grant, arrived in Ravenna on Thursday last, to pay a visit to the friends and ac quaintences whom be had not seen for for ty-nve years. Mr. urant was for a num ber of years a resident of Doerfiold and Ra venna, and removed from here in 1820. It was a source of gratification to both Mr. Grant and those wbo knew him In the pio neer days of our local history, to meet him once more, and to find him hale and hearty in the full enjoyment of a contented green old ago. In company with Col. Prater, an Intimate friend of bis in former years, Mr. Graot went to Deerfleld on Friday, to visit bis mother's grave. He has also visited other townships, to revive old acquaintance and friendship. Upon Sabbath day he at tended tbe Methodist Episcopal Church, of which denomination be is a member. Af ter tbe service, tbe ccogregatioo mostly tarried, and sought an opportnity to take . bitn by tbe band, as ezpresbive,tbrougb him, of their veneration for tbe great hero of tbe war, bis son Ulysses. His room at tha Collins House has been tbroncod with viait. on daily, and. his visit to his early homo has afforded him a source of unexpected satisfaction and pleasure. All of our older citizens remember him well, aud it is a cir cumstance worthy of remark that a lapse of forty-five years found so many still here; and yet tbe leaves of memory seemed turned with a mournful rustle, as these old men sat together, "And spoke of many a vanished scene, Of what they once bad thought and said, Of what had been, and might have been, And who were changed, and who were dead." Ravenna Democrat. Thx Power of Superstitioh. 'Witch es and Imposters," says Lord Bacon, "have always held a competition with physicians." Galen complains of this su perstition, and observes that patients placed more confidence iu the oracles of Esculapius and their own idle dreams than in the prescriptions of doctors. Tha introduction of precious stones into med ical practice owed its origin to a supersti tious belief that, from their beauty, splen dor, and high value, they were the nat ural receptacles for good spirits. Mys tery, in the dark ages, and. alas! even now, increases the confidence in remedial means; reveal their true nature, tha charm is dissolved. Self Education We have two educations. one which we receive from others, tho other and the. most valuable we give ourselves. It is the last which gives our grade in society, snd event ually our actual value in this life, and perhaps the true eclor of our fate hereafter, All the pro fessors and teachers la the world cannot make us wise without our own co-operation; and, if such we are determined to be, the want of them will not prevent it. To reprove small faults with undna ve hemence, is as absurd as if a man should take a hammer because be saw a fly oo his friend's forehead.
