The past week has been one of cold and storm that make the advent of spring seem like a far-off vision of some promised land whose beauties are to be forever denied to us. Occasionally the sun has shone hut its beams have fallen powerless on the frosty air, and winter has not yet losed its grasp dot relaxed the iron bands with which rioor mother earth has lain &? long fast bound. A scmxTLFic hairdresser of this city thinks that he has discovered in the com mou bare a principle that will bo bene ficial to the human scalp. It is known that the hare, which turns white iu winter retains its brown color at the approach oi summer, and this has suggested to the cupilary savant referred to, the idea of coloring white hairs with concentrated ex tract of brown hares. I x another column will be found a no tice of the Dr.Warner Brothers, who com mence a course of lectures upon physio logical subjects, at Child's Hall, on Mon day evening next. These gentlemen come with the liestol recommendations, and as they illustrate their subjects with anato mical specimens, the course cannot fail to be fully as interesting as instructive. We doubt not they will meet with good suc cess. Vkstkrdav Friday afternoon, Mr. Kobert Blair, celebrated his )th birth day. There was a pleasant gathering of family and friends, and a most enjoyable afternoon of old-time social life, but the hour at' which we are compelled to go to press prevents ns from giving any exten ded notice of the occasion. In the next issue we shall endeavor to present a few of the many pleasant reminiscences which were called up by those present. Thk next lecture on tne evidences of Christianity in the Baptist church (to-mor row evening) promises to be one of the most important of the course. It will be well worth the consideration ot some of the konett investigators of the truth, even though they may differ from the speaker in bis views. Some stubborn facts are Ijeing presented in this series, which .may ex plain to even the strongest skeptic why christians rest so much on their faith. All are invited to attend. Mr. Wm. Bcrsett met with an acci dent on Sunday last, which it was llrst thought would prove fatal, at least, of a serious nature. The accident was caused by the overturning of a buggy in which Mr. B. was riding, and at the time turning around, and the consequent striking upon his bead. A slight congestion was caused, which, however, was not of long duration or painful results. . We are glad to lenru that Mr. Burnett's rapid recovery litis ena bled him sosoon to get about. J. B. Al'XKK, the accident to whom was duly published a short time since, is doing as well as could be expected. AVe under stand that his employers, Messrs.' Ilurl burt tt, Paige, not only continue bis pay while be is disabled, but have also as sumed bis physician's bill. In addition to this he was, a few days since, made the re cipient of a donation, made up by bis em ployers and fellow-laborers. Such evi dence oT practical, generous friendship must be exceedingly gratifyiug to Mr. Auxer. " The notice that anonymous communica tions will not be published seems to be one of those things which people can nev er be made to read or believe that it means anything. It would seem as if it had been reiterated often enough for all to under stand, but there are still some who ajipear to be in Ignorance of the rule. For that reason and especially for the information of "S," we once again state that under no circumstances will communications be published unless accompanied by the name of their author. days since, however, they were allowed to run in the yard, for a few hours, in common with their larger and more numerous cousins. The immediate result was a contest between the champion chanticleer of the yard and the Bantuin, in which after a brave and spirited fight the Sea bright was forcea to retreat with bis ad versary's clariou note of victory ringing in his ears. As if this was not sufficient for his punishment, Mrs. Seabright. who had watched the battle from afar.no sootier saw the result than she at once forsook her leige lord and placed herself under the protection of his more vigorous adversary. In vain the deserted one clucked and coaxed and tried to spread his plumage in such attractive guise as to allure back the unfaithful one. Faithful to her unfaithful ness she refused to return. The shock was too much for the suffering husband and with one desparing '-cluck" he walk ed away for a few steps, and there, with out a struggle or munuur.calmly laid him self on his back and breathed his last a victim of jealousy and misplaced affection. The incident was affecting interesting and" suggestive. Illustrated Lrclarr. Dr. Warner of Xew York Tuiversity, commences a course of physiological lec tures iu c'hilds Hall, Monday evening. March llth, and continuing for a season of five nights. He has been several months in this state, and in Nor walk, Llyria. Medina, and Wellington, where he has recently been, the halls were hardly lai'e enough to hold the crowds that his lecture drew together. He proba bly has no equal in the lecture field to-day. Our citizens will enjoy a rare treat the coming week. 3farclt loth and 16th. j l We arc pleased to announce that an op- j j portunity will soon be offered for the en- i joynicnt ot such a musical treat as is sel dom presented. On Friday and Saturday evenings, March 15th and lCth, the Peak Family, Vocalists, Harpists, Swiss Bell Ringers and Silver Cornet Band, are to give in Wilcox'Hall two of their itnparalel lcd entertainnTents. Through this section of country their past good reputation is too well established, and their ability to please and entertain is too well apprecia ted to need much comment. And indeed after nearly fifty years of travel, experi ence and success it will be useless to add further praise. To those who have never heard them we have to. say that they will never have a better opportunity to satisfy their love for fun, music and grotesque humor, and that they will always regret it if they allow the opportunity to go unem braced. To those that have heard them it need only be said that instead of allowing their merit to deterioate, they have raised it to a far higher standard than ever before. The price of tu?Lr admission cards is fifty cents, no extra charge for reserved seats which seats can be secured at the Post-office Book store. An additional induce ment is offered to those procuring reserved ; seats in the way of a line photograph of 'Ships coming in," was so far as we could perceive with the strictest attention, per fect in its rvthm and measure. The j thoughts produced were good and the le j lincation graceful. The exercises being ' over, the guests tarried in social inter course for a half hour and then retired from the scene, taking with them the happy memory of a pleasant evening. Common IMeaa Court. Our last report gave a list oi the cases that had been disposed of up to and in cluding Thursday last. The following comprises all that have beeu docketed from tbat time to the present writing Thursday afternoon : Friday. The trial of the case of Dan iels vs. Schrain et al, was concluded. The Jury returned a verdict for plaintiff, and against defendant Beardsley lor $267.46. Defendant demands second trial, and bail fixed at $300. Other cases were disposed of as lol Rows: P. & H. B, R.

Do not forget the time or place, Wilcox Hall, Friday and Saturday evenings. March loth and 16th. JLe Xasqne. The attendance at the second Masquer ade Ball, at Wilcox Hall, on Thursday evening last, was even larger than that at the one ot two weeks since. The pleasure which all had taken at tbat time led many to go in costume who would otherwise have remained spectators at least, and it must be gratifying to the managers to be able to feel that none were disappointed in their anticipations of a pleasant time. The number of those present was larger than before and the costumes were more varied and attractive. Taken altogether it was a success, and many were heard, as they went home in the 'we sin a' hours, wishing that another similar ball might be given before the days shall have lengthened into summer. Almost at Faua.1 Accident. On Sunday last a team of horses, at tached to a light double wagon in which were four ladies, the Misses Dyer, Bliss Bush and Miss Stickney, while near the Depot, became frightened and entirely un manageable by the boy who was driving. They ran up State street to Main, and turning came up to in front of the Stock well House, where they overturned the wagon and threw out its occupants. For tunately no injuries were inflicted beyond a few slight bruises, with the exception of a severely sprained wrist tor Miss Bush. The horses iu turning the corner freed themselves from the wagon, and passing through the alley in the rear of the hotel were finally captured on State street.. To those who saw the accident it seemed al most impossible but tiiat broken limbs or loss of life must result, and it is a matter of congratulation to all friends that no more serious danger was inflicted than the mere destruction of wagon and harness.

With a combined experience of over three quar ters of a century they bring a record "Time tried and Fire tested,'? and one that is no less gratifying to those holding policies than to the officers, managers and agents, " Thk Railway Base Ball Club is hotdead, but has lain dormant throughout the win ter, only to be stronger for the campaign of the coming summer.

Generosity is our weakness.- To that fact alone call be attributed the offer which we now make, that, to every one who desires we will present a copy ot our beautiful premium chromo "Ducks" or, at least we will do this on certain condi tions. The chromo is a beautiful specimen of the art and has been admired by all who have seen it. So much so indeed that many of our old subscribers have desired to purchase copies, and, when told that we could not sell them, nave expressed a great desire to obtain one by some means, if they possibly could. For this reason we have been led to make the above offer the conditions being simply as follows: To every person, already a subscriber to the Journal, who will secure one addi tional subscriber, we will present a copy of the chromo, and will at the same time give one to the new patrou. This offer is made only for the benefit of those who are now subscribers, and is intended to be an inducement by which to secure the active cooperation of our frienda in extecding our business. As the chromo retails at not less than from three to four dollars, our offer certainly justifies the opening assertion that "generosity is our weak ness." LnnsrhiiiK The use of Sitrous Oxyde as an auas- tbetic has been long known, and its many- advantages acknowledged by all who have become acquainted with its powers and properties. Especially has it grown into popular tavor since its manufacture, aud the appliances for its application have beeu so simplified, as to place it within the reach of the general public. In connection with dentistry it has par ticularly proven to be of value as aftord- ing, perfect immunity from pain durin operations, and at the same time being free from the injurious effects which so often follow the use of other substances or gasses. The only difficulty bas been the tediousness of its preparation and the complicated machinery necessary for its use. All this bas of late, however been obviated aud the result is Its rapid intro duction among dental Surgeons. Dr. D. D.

A C'ententtrlnn. Through the kindness of our friend E. . Branch who by-the-way has the abil ity to fully appreciate its value we were lately shown a literary curiosity in the shape of a copy of the Xew London Ga zelle, published iu Connecticut on the 14th of February, 1772. It would be difficult to descrilie its quaint typography or to give good idea of the news advertised, as freshest advices both Foreign aud Do- mestick," but that thebenefits of advertis ing were fully appreciated even then is shown by the fact tbat over one-fourth of its columns are filled with various speci mens of the ability of people to puff their wares and merchandise. Among other cdvertisenieuts is a notice over the signa-1 ture of Israel Putnam who was then a peaceful "farmer in which somebody is re- qrested to return two books, "The Adven tures of a Guinea" which they have bor rowed and forgotten to bring back. Peo ple in 1772 were not materially different, after all. from those of 1872. In size the paper is about fourteen by ten inches, with three columns to a page and is printed without rules between the columns or across the head of the pages. Among the notices is one to the effect that "a lot tery for raising the church steeple in Prov idence Town, facilitating the passage of the creek and .purchasing a clock," ia open for all "who desire to become adven turers therein" and that tickets can be procured of the Rev. Mr. Graves. The foreign news is ante-dated from three to four months aud is composed principally of letters Irom on board various foreign vessels. There is no name attached to it but from the address to the letters it is seen that at that time the editor was one Mr. Green. Undoubtedly it was consid ered an 'able sheet at tbat time, and its news was none the less interesting be cause not flashed across the world in a moment's time. HII. JACKSON, M. It., HOMEOPA . THIST.

It might be likened to tbat on the visage of an epicure at the close of a deli cate rare, and incomparable dinner an expression of complete satisfaction. Xo hade of disappointment was apparent on this occasion, for tnere was no failure in Mr. Raffensberger or his entertaining lecture. Mr. R. possesses three physical advan tages which commend him as a popular speaker: a dignified presence, a rich, pow erful voice, and a natural grace ot man ner; beside these he has talent, culture, and discriminating judgment. " These lat ter so controlled the management of bis subject as to produce a sense ot entire satisfaction, without satiety ; and so nice ly harmonized the illustrations of bis points as to leave the bearer iu doubt whether the points were assumed for the convenience of the illustrations, or nice versa in fact both were pertinent and symmetrical. The subject carries on its face a suspicion of irreeonciliation with dignity, particularly clerical dignity; yet no one could more thoroughly harmonize the seeming antagonism than did the rev erend lecturer. We have listened to speakers who could render a humorous in cident with more apparent gest than Mr, R., but it is just here, as a rule, they also exhibit their inferiority. In descending to buffoonery for a present effect,they escape the more pleasing and lasting after in fluence. We believe this reflects the uniform opinion of those who heard Mr. Raffensber ger, and we should have no hesitancy in predicting for him a full bouse should he in the future again favor us. And we doubt not a large portion of the intelligent people of PainesviUe would be well pleased to know that the financial success attending this lecture was sufficient to justify the Y. M. C.

The present week has beeu marked by quite a number of accidents. On Tues day afternoon while delivering goods ou Erie street, a young mau by the name. of Gregory was run away with and thrown violently against a fence, badly cutting bis head and inflicting other ami perhaps dangerous injuries. He was carried into the house of B. O. Wilcox and Dr. H. C Beardslee at once called. We understand that the horse became frightened and tin mauagnble in consequence of the giving away of some part of the harness and the consequent running of the wagon against his heels.

( Thk Ashtabula .Se.ntiael describes the Court about to be held there as that of "Common Please.". Probably however it was intended as a delicate compliment to the present presiding Judge who has cer tainly succeeded, thus far, In being able to "please" all who have transacted business before blm. faithful, its keen suffering will end in death. A remarkable instance of this kind not long since came to our knowl edge which, aside lrom its singularity, posesses additional interest as showing tbat there is still labor for the Woodhull and the Tilton to do. Maynard Murray, Esq., lately had in bis possession a pair of Seabright Bantams tbat were kept sepa rate from the balance of the fowls. A few Jos. IV. RriSfsTs. In consequence of the crowded state of our columns last week, it was impossible to notice the death of Jos. W. Briggs which occurred iu Cleveland ou Friday, the 23d ultimo.. For many years the de ceased had been connected with the Pos tal service of the I'nited States, and to his cxertionsis is to be attributed the es- ' tablishmetit of that system of free de livery which now prevails in most, if not j all of our principal cities. From him, in fact, was received the first suggestions, i and to him was entrusted the tusk of re ducing the idea to practical operation. Hw well he succeeded in this work, the thousands who daily receive the benefit of regular and punctual' delivery of their mail, cau testify. In speaking of the zeal and .unwearying labor with whichthe deceased labored, the Rev. A. II. Strong in delivering his funeral oration said: He felt that he had a special calling. Faith nud conviction and indomitable resolution were uianilestcd iu what he did. He met with ridicule nnd opposition iu the carrying out of his plans. But he saw further into the future than those who ob structed his way, and he iiiietlv went ahead. Few can now realize the unwea ried assiduity with which he prosecuted his work, crossing and recrossing the con tinent now at New Orleans, now at Bos ton; one week in San Francisco and the next in New York; travelling liternllv bv the hundred thousand miles, und always carrying on the inside of his coat a label stating his name und place of residence, so that in enso of sudden death by acci dent, his remains might be sent 'by tbe nearest nio.il agent to his family in Cleve land. He called himself n pioneer in this en tcrprize and expected others to finish the work wnu-n he had begun. lie had pre monitions that these exhausting labors would be too much for him, hut he still worked on until he could literally work no longer. It is no wonder that the depart ment at Washington with which ho was connected expressed the most sincere re gret ut the pror.pect of his death, and de dared it to lie a loss exceedingly difficult to repair. Personally the deceased was a favorite with all who knew him, and bis death will prove a loss to friends as well as re lations. The funeral services were con ducted at the First Baptist Church in Cleveland. we were better off, in a financial point of new, in the sum of about one hundred and fifty dollars. We take pleasure in tender ing to these friends for their many tokens of kind remembrance of us, our most sin cere and heart-felt thauks. We have now been in the delightful lit tie citv of Painesvillc about eighteen months, and we do certainly feel that it mi and is "good for us to be here." Du ring eight years labor in tbe ministry, it has never been our lot to find anywhere a more generous, kind-hearted and sympa thizing people than we find in l'ainesville. Indeed, wa have met with nothing but kindness from all classes throughout our stay. We do think our city may well feel croud of her citizens. Her town officers, churches, papers, inerchauts, bankers, and business men of all classes; also her professional men lawyers, doctors, teachers, etc. especially may we feel pro'nd of our city papers, for probably no other town of the same size in the Cnited States cau produce as large, respectable, and ably edited papers as are now beiug published in our town; and best of all, we believe thev are being well supported, which certainlv speaks well for tbe intel ligence and enterprise of our citizens. jars. Ingram joins in expressions oi grati tude to our many friends for so kindly re membering us, and for the numerous sub stantial lavors bestowed upon us. J. W. Ingram. Editor Journal: 1 do not wish to bur den your columns with biblical controver sy, but some reply is certainly due to the ratuer unwarranted statements of. "En quirer" in your last. 1 supposed that every intelligent person knew that the English version was hut a translation ot the scriptures, and of course liable to error where those translating ninv not have exercised sufficient care. Again 1 know of no one who claims that "a fool" or indeed a very intelligent person may not err as to the interpretation or passages, and most certainly "Enquirer'' has "ex posed his own ignorance, (if he is honest) of the most ordinarv rules of English speech. For the use of the word "voice" in precisely similar wavs is common to ev ery day life. But in the Greek the genitive is used in Acts 9: S, while in the 27th chap ter ana win verse, tuc accusative is used which at once determines that the first word translated "voice" should have a general signification as when "Enquirer" in a public assembly would say I heard the "voice" of the speaker, but in an hour afterward might say I could not hear his voice, because torsootn ne did not under stand him, just as Paul said in the last case when the accusation is used. So that English usage and Greek construction ex actly agrees, and tAere is no contradiction. Of course the meaning attaches to tbe use made of the word "voice." But "Enquir er" asks, "How Lithos knows that Paul did not rise first or that they did not all rise together," I answer because so it reads as he cau very readily see by a comparison of the three accounts. Asain he asks how I know that thev all did not understand Hebrew. Here again "Enquirer" exposes his own ignorance of common History, ine Knowledge ot the events of history will explain at once to F.uquirer," or any one tne consistencv of mv statement in this respect. Once more Enquirer objects to my statement that Paul saw Christ, and that ail was under stood by him. Well it matters but little whether ram saw him or not, but the word used by Paul in the Greek plainly implies that he did see him. But Paul' was not told to go to Damascus for any explanation of the events that there transpired but to be tola ms Mitgm tne jutttre. Here "in quirer" shows his incorred reading of tbe .... n .. . i : , .. I.- . 'i : . . i. . . . siuieuieiit. in biiiiiu ximgusii. n, it, true Luke wrote the entire book of the Aets however he quotes Paul's own words iu the last two accounts. I suppose it is quite consistent for a historical account to be positively true, and at the same time be general, and again to give in another place tne aeiaus oi an event ana mis latter also be true. This is quite apparent to every thinking mind. Sow before "Enquirer" agains accuses of "tricks to cover up" the truth, let him nrst take tune to thoroughly investigate bis subject and understand the common est principles of history and language, and he will not again get himself into the ridiculous plight of exposing his own ig norance in trying to expose some other persons "tricks" which are only fictions of his own imagination.

Tbe seats were well arranged, tbe pupils being seated in aboclv, facing the audience. The exer cises were arranged in tbe following PROGRAMME. Duo Vain Shulhoff Chorous C'Night s shade no Longer."

It would have been an equally liaru task to nave found per sons who could have more excelled in the rendering of the production of the exer cises tliau those to whom they were slot ted. The most inattractive and ignorant observer could not have failed to see that much practice was what bad made perfect the musical selections. Of tbe choruses quartette and instrumental performances we can only speak colleetivly, but of the compositions moie at large, for they in dicated not only careful drilling on the part of the teachers, and close study by the pupils, but an originality seldom seen iu our schools or seminaries, and which is often crushed when it does appear by an improper course of training, "The Tuilleries" was the subject of an interesting essny, in which was given brief sketches of tbe famous characters as sociated with the history of that "grand old pile." Its wording showed that its au thor knew how to use Inngunge in a forci ble and elegant maiinc. "What is Home without a Dog," was,as might lie expected in the humorous line, mid was a success ful effort cllicitmg much applause. One young lady admirubly discussed the mod ern method of criticising female lecturers under the title of "Mr. Mufkin's Opinion."

In what I have previously written, I have endeavored to represent things sim ply as they actually were. I know that it has been, and is the fashion to excuse and vindicate the character of Jacob and his mother in the transactions here re corded, but I cannot do otherwise than to consider the whole of the conduct, both of Rebecca and Jacob highly exceptional A mother teaches her favorite son to de ceive his father, to cheat and defraud his brother, to tell the most abominable lies, And the son himself is a ready pupil. But henceforth we shall bear better things of Jacob. Whether this was owing to the fact that be was no longer con trolled by his mother, or not, certain it is. that bis character as evinced bv his con duct, underwent a remarkable change. The journev to the land ot Ins mothers kindred having been determined on, it is saitt tiiiuxsaac cauea jacou ana uiessea him. Tbe bicssing this time was given voluntarily anu cueeriuuy, ana is, in suo statnee, the same as tbat previously be stowed. j aeon set out on nts journey on foot and alone, with bis start' in his hand The country through which he travelled. appears to have been but sparsely popu lated, for he was at times, at least, obliged to sleep in the open air, with a stone for his piliow. Oue day, having traveled until after sunset, he came. into the vicinitv of a place called Luz, and no other lodging place uciug avaiiaorc, lie luyvuuwn io sleep in the open field. And he dreamed, and beheld a ladder set upon tbe earth, ana tne top or it reached to neaven, and behold, tne angels ot lioa ascenainr, and descending ou it. And behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac; the land whereon thou liest, to tnee win t give it, ana to tny seed: and thy seed shall be as the dust ot the earth. aud thou shalt spread abroad to the west. ana to tne east, ana to tue north, and to the south; anu in tnee ana in thy seed, shall all the families of the earth be blessed. Jacob appears to have been much as tonished at this vision, for bis first excla mation on awaking, was, " Surely the Lord is in this place, and 1 knew it'not." And again, "How dreadful is this place, it ia none other but the name of God, and this is the gate of heaven." lie was tne son oi pious parents, jus fathers worshiped God, and considered him an ever preseut beings and recognized his providence in all their affairs. But the old home, and friends, ana associa tions, were left far behind, and Jacob was alone in tbe still hours of night, in a strange and desolate land. Tbat God should be there also, was to him a new and strange idea. Some of the old writers supposed that the gate or entrance into neaven was actually above inis spot, that when the angels descended to earth, thev came through' that particular place, and returned by the same way. Jt certainly appears that Jacob had a similar notion. J.C. W RLLS. Full line of Trimming Valours at P. Pratt Cn'8 English Black Silk to $15 00 per yarO Velvets, from $3 50 P. Pratt & Co.

The following Irom one who has had live years experience in the manufacture of Plnnos, Melodit.ns, and Organs, may be Interesting to all who may wish to inves tigate the subject, or to those who desire to buy. "Xo wood is fit to be put into a Piano, Melodion, or Organ until it has had three yeais good seasoning at least. Five months is the shortest time in which Rose wood can be finished with Copal Varnish. Three-fourths of the instruments of the kitids mentioned above, are made from lumber seasoned 110 more than threeorj'onr treeks. The result is, the piano will not stay in tune, the varnish will check and fall off. and the instrument w ill be out of order most of the time. Ilajselton and Brother's Pianos have stood t treat y-jire gears, in Xew England, and throughout the country where they have been introduced. To-day this firm arc making a piano with more real merit than is posscsed by an' other in the I'nited States. It dnt cost a farm to buy a binno. unless you indirectly pay t a commission to three or four agents. I will sell n, llazcltou piano at a very small advance on the cost to the manufac turer. I will give a written gnarautcc from Hnxelton Brothers, and Myself, that the instrument shall give perfect satisfaction for veins, and otherwise the money is to be refunded. I will furnish ten or twelve dif ferent makes of Piunos, usually sold hIhiui the country by agents who know nothing about them; for less than $.100,00.
