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
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

they illustrate their subjects with anato

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.
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.

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 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
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.

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
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

Through the kindness of our friend E.

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

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

peaceful "farmer in which somebody is re-
qrested to return two books, "The Adven

rowed and forgotten to bring back. Peo

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

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
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
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.

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

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
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. IIithos.

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.

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

Xew England, and throughout the country
where they have been introduced. To-day

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
